fk\ Berlin, April   6.���The  entire   Ger-
.". man press is still greatly excited over
ft\ tbe  Emperor's   recent   utterances   on
���}��� the occasion of his toasts   and the re-
n\ views in today's   weekly   papers con-
gL firm this condition.

���J' bot sadder still is the fact that the
f��\ emperor had tho regiment's barracks
J/J. built in close proximity to the cas-
.fj '''Hf' which shows that the emperor
f|_ meant what he said upon that occa-
."' slon. Tbe paper then dissects the em-
fk\ peior's toast concerning Russian-Ger-
.". man relations, and says it is evident
Jmi that somebody has been systemati-
' cally trying to embroil these hitherto
friendly nations and that from the
emperor's hints this can only he
Great Britain or Japan. The fact of
the matter is that the emperoi 's utterances have been interpreted in all
Ways to suit everybody's taste and
partyism. The Ruger Von Adams

heen engaging the emperor's attention
last week. He has read the papers in
tlie case and has come to the conclu-
don that some change for the better

absolutely required and desires the
court of honor to have full powers.

The German press comments unfavorably on the farewell speech of Mr.
0. P. Bryan, U. S. minister to Brazil,
at Port Alegro, In which Mr. Bryan
Wtts quoted as counselling the German
residents in Brazil to ccntribute to
the welfare ot that country, without
wounding the national sentiments of
the Brazilians.
A letter on this matter from a prominent German of Rio de Janeiro is
making the rounds of the press. This
letter says Mr. Bryan's words were
tae(less and that the American
minister Interfered in matters which
did not concern him, and denies that

The correspondent of the Associated Press learns on the highest authority that Prince Tuan'state has finally
been decided. His death sentence
will be commuted to banishment to
Turkestan. The list of guilty provincial authorities included only four
to be beheaded and seven degradations.
The Chinese commissioners are surprised that the guilty should escape
with such light punishments. The
informant of the correspondent of the
Associated Press added, "And well
they may."
The Frankfurter Zeitung published
another letter from Pekin containing
a verbatim account of the interview
between Dr. Muni Von Schwarzen-
stem, German minister to China,
and a Chinese prince. The most interesting point in the interview is
the prince's open admission that if
the allied troops are not withdrawn
the boxers would immediately appear in strong force. The prince added: "This, LI Hung Chang and Prince
Ching likewise know."

At Trieste, Austria, is building
three large battleships on the latest

Commander Beehler   was presented to
tKing of Italy at Rome, with

Commander Beehler spoke to King
Victor Emmanuel concerning Signor

THE ATTITUDE
OF THE POWERS
Outlined at a Meeting of the
Generals of the Allied
Troops.
American and Russian Commanders Dissented from
the Scheme.
Pekin, April 6.���The meeting of
the generals of the allied troops and
Count Von Waldersee this morning
was of great Interest and importance.
Though it was known before hand
what had practically been decided upon still the meeting prove conclusively the attitude of the different powers. The only dissentors to the
plans Adopted were General Chaffee,
the American commander, and General Wogack, commander of the Russian forces, who both thought that
the number of points to be occupied
was excessive and also that the number of troops was too great. The oth
er generals were unan imous in the
opinion that nine points on the railway should be occupied between Pekin and Shan Hai Kuan with six
thousand men exclusive of the 2,000
in Pekin. This will be a permanent
measure while the reduction of the
present force will be made according
to the wishes of the respective governments. The railway between Pao
Ting Fu and Pekin will not be guarded, it not being a line of communication with the sea.
General Chaffee suggested that it
waB only .necessary to occupy two
points between Yang Tsun and Tien
Tsin and three between. Tien Tsin
and Slum ll��i Kwan with a total of
2,000 men exclusive of those at Pekin.
It was not. necessary, he said, to
leave soldiers at Tong R*u as naval
vessels were always there and also
because the reliefs would always be
passing backward and forward. General Wogack thought ',000 men would
be sufficient for the occupation of Tien
Tsin and Shan Hai Kwan.
Tbe views of the majority will be
presented to the ministers for immediate aotion as the generals feel that
the acceptance by the Chinese of these
terms, including tbe total destruction
of the forts at Shan Hai Kwan, Pel
Tang, Taku, Tong Eu, Pel Tang and
Yang Taun, will mean complete submission when arrangements ought to
be made for the withdrawal of the
majority of the forces from China.
A CURIOUS MOVE.
French Ship Laid a Cable Without
Asking Permission.
Hong Kong, April 6.���The foreign
residents of Amoy are puzzled by the
odd procedure of the French cable
ship Diolaban, which last Wednesday
laid a cable from Amoy out to sea
without consulting the local authorities who did not interfere with the
progress of the work, supposing the
Diolaban to be a transport. It was
reported that a second cable ship was
waiting outside for the purpose of
connecting with the cable laid by
the Diolaban. The direction of the
laying of these cables is unknown.
Today tbe Diolaban returned off Amoy
and cut the cable she had laid, taking
the end aboard.

LIKE VICTORIA BRIDGE HORROR.
Street Car Plunged Through a Bridge,
But Without   Fatalities.
Syracuse, N. Y., April 0.���While a
car on the old east side suburban line
of the Syracuse Rapid Transit company was crossing the James street
bridge over the Oswego oanal in the
heart of the city late this evening, the
bridge suddenly gave way, dropping
the car and forty passengers to the
canal bed thirty feet below. Several
persons crossing the bridge at the
time went down with the car, while a
horse and loaded lumber wagon piled
on top of the heap. About 30 persons
were injured. It is not believed that
any deaths will result although there
are reports of seveial of the worst injured being dangerously hurt.
Had the canal been filled with water, tho result of the accident would
have been terrible. The car struck
the^tow path first and then slid into
the bod in the canal bottom where it
is stuck. The water would have been
deep enough to cover all but a few
windows and the front door and many
of the passengers would undoubtedly
have perished.
CAUSES ANXIETY.
Algiers, April 6.���Military officials
here are anxious over the absence of
all news from General Serviere, oper
ating on the Moroccoan border whose
whereabouts is utterly unknown.
Couriers have been despatched in various directions but have failed 4o communicate with General Serviere and
it is feared that he is short of ammunition and piovislons.

OCCUPATION OF
MANCHURIA
St. Petersburg  Papers Say
Russia Is Not Responsible.
Japan's Warlike Attitude Is
Due to Lack of Information.
.St. Petersburg, April 6.���The newspapers here aver that the foreign
powers aud not Russia are responsible
for the continued occupation of Manchuria. The Vledomosti says it is
quite Impossible for Russia to withdraw without coming to a guarantee
that order will be preserved on her
frontiers, adding: "Rushia does not
intend to be left in the Far East at
the disadvantage she was placed under In the Far East two or three years
ago.''
The Rosslya maintains that Russia
tried to arrange plans for tbe withdrawal of her troops and this was
thwarted by nearly the whole of
Europe and she must continue in the
"unpleaBant position as the occupier
of Manchuria. ",j
Washington, April 0.���The Japanese
minister, Mr. Takahira, has received
no word from his government since
the latest Ruslan declaration was communicated.
The minister siys it is probable that
the London dispatch appearing today
in American newspapers as to the
warlike attitude of Japan probably
was sent out before the Russian declaration had been received by the
Japanese government. The dispatch
alluded to stated that the Japanese
government had decided that Russia's
reply concerning Manchuria was unsatisfactory and that a pcemptory
remonstrance, amounting practically
to an ultimatum, would be delivered
to Russia.
This appeared to refer to Russia's
latest declaration but on examination,
it is clear that it could not have referred to the latest Russian declaration as this was not sent to the powers until Thursday night alter the
warlike dispatch was sent out fiom
Japan.
UNITED ACTION TAKEN.
London, April 6.���A dispatch from
St. Petersburg says it iB learned from
a trustworthy souice that Russia's
diplomatic agents abroad were instructed on April 3 to communicate to
the governments to whioh they were
accredited, an identical note in the
same terms as that presented by Court
Cassini (the Russian minister at
Washington), to Secretary Hay.
RUSSIA'S SCHEME   REJECTED.
London, April 7.���The Shanghai
correspondent of the Sunday Specials
says it has transpired that Russia recently proposed to Japan the neutralization of Corea, but that Japan refused the propsition lis insufficiently
safeguaiding her interests.
THE DRIEBUND.
The Italian Premier is Likely to Ask
For Certain Modifications.
Berlin, April 6.���The correspondent
of the Associated Press learns reliably that the German foreign office regards it as possible that Signor Z.an-
ardolli, the Italian premier, will ask
for certain modifications of the Drie-
bund conditions, which seems to hinder the bettering of the relations between Italy and France, though in
themselves the paragraphs are in nowise Francophone. Tbe foreign office
firmly believes that mutual arrangements may be effected. Signor Zan-
ardolli and Count Von Buelow will
soon make public declarations on the
subject. The Driebund expires May
1st, 1003, eight months before tlie commercial treaty. Notice of the termination of the Driebund must be given
\2 months ahead, otherwise,, it prolongs itself.

OFF TO OTTAWA.
The departure of delegates from
the various boards of trade of Southern British Columbia en route to Ottawa yesterday morning, marks the
first determined step which lias been
taken by the people of this province
towards securing what all will admit
is a crying necessity���the establishment of a lead refinery at some point
in tho Kootenays. There is excellent
reason for believing that the government will yield to the representations
which will be made by the delegation, as Mr. S. S. Taylor who has
been at Ottawa for some days in con
nection with the same matter, aB a representative of the Nelson Board of
Trade, speaks most optimistically of
the chances of receiving governmental
aid for the project. When the sito
ation is explained the government
cannot fail to be convinced that the
treatment within Canada of all our
lead ores would nearly double to tbe
country the value of the lead mining
industry, afford better terms to the
producers of high grade ore than they
have hitherto enjoyed and permit of
the treatment of low grade ore now
valueless by home smelters at rates
that would encourage the mining of
a greatly increased tonnage. Under
all the circumstances it is difficult to
see how the government can refuse to
grant the bonus. It is generally understood that there is a Canadian
company ready to build and operate
a refinery if its operations are treated
by the government as are the iron
Industries of the country���given a bonus on the output for a seated time.
The Sandon Mining Review discusses the situation very intelligently.
It argues that the bonus given the
iron industry is to stimulate mining
operations in the country, for the benefits they may bring the people in the
shape of revenues, employment for
miners and mechanics, and business
lor business men the country over in
its various ramifications. The production and handling of silver-lead
ores will do for the country precisely
the same thing. They will employ
thousands of mineis, keep up a commercial and miscellaneous community in the scenes of operation, open a
market for the agricultural productions ot the farming districts of British Columbia, Manitoba and the Territories, create sales for the manufactured products of the eastern provinces, and employment for the capital
of investors the country over.
Ihe industry for the time being
may not be as large as that of the iron
production, but neither will it be as
great a drain on the treasury of the
country. Apart from all these consid
erations a refinery will lead to lead
manufacturing and keep at home a lot
of money now paid for manufactures,
and to employees, in   other countries.
It is, of course, possible that after
a short time the Americans may come
to their senses and bid again for our
ores, but the country can never suffer
by having the second market for them
and the second system of handling
them. It will only be to mining what
a second railway is to shippers.
There aie, of course, some who say
it is money all these bonus hunters
are after. That is quite true; but if
money to them means money to the
public as well, why should it not be
given?
Up to the present,refining has never
been tried In this country���it is only
a venture, and generally capital looks
for something tangible in a venture.
Railway rates are high in this country on ore and bullion as on all other
commodities, labor Is expensive, and
the sale of lead is subject to market
fluctuations. With all these conditions
staring capitalists in the face, there
is nothing at all unreasonable in their
looking for something substantial in
a refinery venture. They have to
Bell their lead in England, the Orient
and other countries, where they are
met by the lead merchants of the
United States, Spain, Australia and
other countries, and must take the
prices that others take. The bonus
Ib then simply intended to help them
In overcoming heavy transportation

THE SOUTH AFRICAN SITUATION.
While some disappointment is naturally felt at the evidences whioh
exist that the campaign in South Africa will require to be prosecuted for
many months yet before the enemy
is finally subdued, the latest reports
show that Kitchener and his men are
doing excellent work. 8inc�� the
breaking off of peace negotiations the
war has been renewed with increased
energy and General French appears
to have inllicted very sovere loss upon
the enemy in the Vryheid dl.trict.
Tlie Boers show a surprising hurdl-
hood in tlie endurance of punishment.
There are no means of estimating
how many have been killed and disabled, but before General French's
latest onslaught the British had in
their keeping over 18,000 Boer prisoners corralled in St.Helena, Ceylon, and
at various points in South Africa.
On our part the war has been conducted at enormous oost of blood and
treasure, and the end is not yet. The
enemy are'still active at many points,
and are fighting on stubbornly-
hopeless of success but refusing to
submit���and apparently determined
to make good the word of Kruger
that the cost shall "stag er humanity." All this is discouraging
enough, yet there can be uo doubt
that the work now being done by the
British forces is a necessary and providential work, tbe value of which,

sa___a.
Tlie exigencies of tho newspaper
business sometimes demands a modification of opinion, but it would be
a special case indeed that would
change an erstwhile rational man into a shrieking obstructionist of public
measures. For years John Houston,
M. P. P., editor of the Nelson Tribune, was a power in the Kootenays
because he was a stalwart champion
of the masses against class and monopoly. It is needless to discuss the influences that brought abont the com
plete change in his opinions. There
were probably mitigating circumstances which forced Mr. Houston into the position he now takes. They
are of a personal nature, but when Mr.
Houston uses his position as a member of the legislature to needlessly m-
teriupt legislation be at once makes
himself subject to criticism.
If Mr. Houston would only use argument in the house and in his newspaper, he would occupy a better position than he does today, but the pub-
lie are nauseated by a continual
soreeching about the fate of thiB poor
country and the necessity of rallying
around one John Houston to save it
from J. J. Hill. The Nelson Tribune
from tbe outset has not offered a single sensible argument against the
granting of the application for a charter to construct a railway from tbe
Crow's Nest coal fields to the Bouth.
Its diatribes against the charter completely stultify the John Houston we
once knew, the John Houston whose
trenchant pen was directed against
railway monopoly and for competition, who fought for the Nelson and
Fort Shephard railway and tbe Red
Mountain railway, who claimed to
believe that in railway building, in
smelting, mining, in ooke production,
in fact in all .industiies, tbe widest
measure of liberty should be allowed.

was right an.i the .lohn Houston of to

Provincial Immigration  Agent Elii

perial   government  should   enter Into
treaties with Japan   and China on behalf of Canada  providing   that   sub
jects of either   country as Immigrants
shall   not   enter the other in   greater
number   than,   say,   one   hundred
any one year.    A difficulty about suoh
an arrangement   seems   to   present it
self in   the  possibility  of more  than
one hundred Britishers deBlring  to go

being opened up for settlement. China

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Bilious
ness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart failure, etc.
They used August Flower to clean out
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, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the

Negotiations   Between   C. P.    K. and
Crow's Nest Reported at a Standstill.
The Ottawa correspondent of the
Toronto Globe writes his paper as follows:
The Crow's Nest Pass Coal company's bill was the subject of a private conference at the house tonight
between representatives of the company and of the C. P. K., which
threatens to oppose the measure.
The former was represented by Hon.
George A. Cox, Mr. Elias Rogers, Mr.
J. W. Flavelle and Mr. Z. A. Lash.
K. C.; for the C. P. K., President
Shaughqessy, Mr. Drinkwater and
Judge Clarke appeared. The object of
the meeting was to talk over the questions of difference between the two
companies, with a view to removing
any possible grounds of objection to
the bill before the house. The conference was apparently fruitless, for
on adjourning at the expiration of an
hour it was given out that the C. P.
11., would be or. hand tomorrow to oppose the bill when it comeB up before
the railway committee. The C. P. R.
officials profess that they have no objection to tbe bill, providing the
Crows Neat Coal company guarantees
to deliver a steady supply of coal and
coke to the British Columbia smelters at the same price as elsewhere.
On the other hand, however, Mr.
Elias Rogeis, speaking for the coal
company, declared some weeks ago,
and still maintains, that the company is perfectly willing to protect
the province in the matter of supplies
of fuel. None of the parties to the
conference would discuss the points
raised, except to adm't that there had
been a failure to reach an agreement.
It is stated, however, that the coal
company, while prepared to do the
best within its power for British Columbia, .wishes to be left unhampered
in the .legitimate extension of its business at far distant points,where keen
competition would have to be met.
Whether the C. P. R. objects to this
is not clear, but apparently it is in
connection with thiB point that the
obstacle to an understanding between
the two companies arises. The mat
ter will doubtless be threshed out be
fore the railway committee tomorrow
morning, unless the intervention of
other matters should lead to the consideration of the bill  being  deferred.

Carnegie's New Pennsylvania Road
Falls Through.
Pittsburg, Pa., April ti.��� The plans
of Andrew Carnegie to parallel the
Pennsylvania railway system aud construct a trunk line to the seaboard
have been ordered stopped by the
United States Steel Co. whicli now
controls the Carnegie company A
number of surveyors have been work-
ins- upon the line for some time and
these men were all recalled and dis
charged.
The road was planned by Mr. Carnegie and the Carnegie company and
was to be used as an outlet for their
e.tensive tonnage to the seaboard.
The road was started within a few
days after Mr. Carnegie alleged he
had been deceived by the Pennsylvania officials into announcing that
he was satisfied with the 13 cent rate
on manufactured steel.
THE LOST FOUND.
A Valuablo Painting Alleged to Have
Been Recovered.
Chicago, April (i.���Alter traveling

new brothers in London, May l��,l_7(i,
is reported to have been returned to
its owners. The painting is valued
at 850,000. A Chicago detective agency
claims to have been instrumental in
recovering the picture. The holder of
the. picture, who, it is said, was one
of tbe band of thioves who stole it
from the gallery, is said lo have received a large reward for its return
and exacted an agreement to drop the
prosecution. According to the detectives,, be had carrtcd it with him for

Sarah Cohen.
In a little house Just oil Hester street,
says the New York Herald, dwells an old
woman who carries on a most peculiar
trade.. She is Sarah, or "Old Sal," ai
���he is more familiarly called, aud east
���ids residents know ber well, and most al
them patronize her.
On the window pane of her little nho_
is a sign which reads: "Buttons Sold Inside. Any Button Matched, From Ont
Cent to a Nickel." Her stock in trada
is stored up in thousands of buttons is
little heaps���pearl, class, bone, jet, shell,
brass, cloth, Bilk, horn and -very othri
variety of button made.
It is said the old woman's business li
profitable snd that she has managed to
save about $3,000 out of bar curious occupation.
"You see," she said to me, "It is of ton
the case that a woman buys only enough
buttons (or a dress, and then, when sha
loses one, it is difficult to get it matched
at a notion store. Those who know mi
come along here, and I can always,do il
from my stock.
"I huvu my regular customers, foi
most storekeepers around hers know mi
and send their customers to nt when
they are unable to suit them, and the)
seldom go sway without the very thing
they are after.
"Where do I get them from? Many ol
them come from jnnkshops, where oa tin
rags sold are buttons. All the rag dealers know I pay a fair price for buttons,
and they save them until they have a suf
Sclent quantity, and then they come U
me.
"Another v/ny I obtain them is by via
iting the dressmakers, who often have
buttons left over, and their customer!
seldom ask for them. These I can buy
up very cheap. Although my little board
outside says that the highest price I
charge Is 5 cents, my better class of customers do aot hesitate te offer me a
quarter, or even SO cents, for a button
that they haTe lost, In order to niske
their garments look neat and complete."
A Narrow Recap*.
One morning, in the summer of 1866; a
portion of the Fifth United States infsa-
try, while on their way to New Meiico,
halted oa the prairie. They were 800
strong, and many of them were veterans
of the civil war. An ominous sound, like
the muttering of distsnt thunder, startled
them.
Soon s scout came In and reported thai
an immense herd ot buffalo was sweeping toward the camp. The roar heard by
the soldiers was the rattling of the herd's
hoofs. Soon a black mass was seen bearing down, and behind it a cavalcade of
pursuing Indians, GOO strong, , They had
maddened the buffalo, hoping to capture
the train by stampeding the frightened
animals and causing them to overrun the
soldiers.
Something caused tbe herd to open before it reached the soldiers. It passed in
two columns, leaving the Infantry, their
wagons, mules snd horses between and
uot 000 feet from either mass of the maddened beasts.
When the savages saw that their tactics had failed, even their natural self
suppression failed to prevent an exhibition of their rage. They rode off ia sullen
fury���Old Santa Fe Trail.

The Swiss Mndhn-ae.
Ths little republic of Switzerland is
noted for its democracy, for its promotion of the rights of all its people, and
yet Borne of the customs which prevail
in this Alpine laud are ludicrous to people of other countries because of the total
disregard of liberty.
For instance, there are no laws requiring an equitable examination before
incarcerating a person for insanity.
All thnt is necessary to rid oneself of
disagreeable neighbors���to imprison an
enemy for life perhaps���is to secure ths
written assertion ot any doctor thnt the
objectionable person Is insane. This certificate of a physician is sufficient to havo
any person seized and confined in au
asylum for the insane.
Of course, if tbo accused has money or
friends, it is not difficult to secure contradictory medical statements, but it
sometimes happens that ths innocent unjustly suffer.���London Chronicle.
Caddies.
The term "coddles," or "csdles," or
"cuwdles," is skin to "csd" and "cadet"
and means messengers or unattached
male servants. Caddies, In fact, were
originally a class of men, found la every
Scottish town of any else, who were at
the beck and call of everybody who
wanted an odd job done. Hence they
were nt ths beck and call of everybody
who was starting (or a game of golf, and
now, thanks to the organisation of labor,
they are employed solely by the golfer.���

Colonel Ray, of Winnipeg, who is
here in connection with the resump
tion of work -at the Molly Gibson
mine of which he is president, states
that in addition to the plans outlined in yesterday's Miner, the company
also have in contemplation the erection of a smelter sufficiently large to
handle the output of some of the
neighboring properties, which will
shortly be developed to the producing
stage. The water power available in
the creek is sufficient to operate tbe
industry, and the company are seriously considering this feature.
While nothing was said on the
point, it is presumed that the smelter
which would be constructed . at the
Molly Gibson would be one of thu re
verberatory furnaces, whioh are work
ed successfully with comparatively lit
tie expense at properties all over California and in Mexico. The furnace
reduces the ore to matte, in which
shape the mines ship to refineries,
thus overcoming smelter charges and
transportation rates from the mine to
the smelter on a quantity of rock and
other substances which go to make up
the ore. These furnaces are said to
be very satisfactory up to twenty tons
capacity, after, which the usual plan
is to add au additional furnace instead of enlarging the original size.
The Molly Gibson ore, contains properties which makes it almost self fluxing, and coal could be laid down at
the water front at reasonable figures.
Some further development of the
scheme will doubtless be announced
shortly. ��
Other properties which produce high
grade lead ores and have the advantage of being close , to transportation
facilities are now considering the advisability of putting in these rever-
beiatory furnaces, and it is quite
among the possibilities that the forthcoming season may see several of the
plants installed in the Nelson district. "
FOOTBALL AT  CRANBROOK.
The Match on Friday Last Between
East Kootenay and Nelson Teams.
The Rugby football game played ut
Cranbrook on Friday between the East
Kootenay and Nelson teams, which
resulted in a draw, each side scoring
one try, was certainly the fastest and
cleanest game that has been played
in Kootenay. There was a big turn
out of spectators who evinced tlie
keenest Interest iu the game and
though naturally favoring the home
team wero not slow in appreciating
uny good play on the part of the Nelson men. Cranbrook, under the able
captainay.of H. B. Haines, have got
together a very good team and one
that will take n lot of beating in Kootenay. In Fenwick, Beale and Wul-
linger, to say nothing of their captain, they possess a tiio that would be
good on any team and they are not
the only players they have by any
means. Of the Nelson team, Thomson, (who scored Nelson's try), and
Sergaent among the forwards, and
Nasi; and Mason amongst the backs,
were probably the most useful,
though all the team with the exception of the centre three-quarter played up to their best form. After the
game tho team were entertained in a
manner that will not be speedily forgotten by the Nelson men. Their opponents of the afternoon could not do
too much for them and they certainly
enabled them to have a really enjoyable time, which Nelson will endearor
to repay when Cranbrook visit us un
April 30. The return game has been
fixed for that date and the teams being so evenly matched and by uo
means bad players, should draw the
record crowd for Nelson, as Rugby is
the game par excellence for spectators. The Nelson team lined out as
follows: Full back, Mason; wing,
three-quarter, Houton and Stlllwell;
ccntie three-quarter, Seatle, Macrae,
(capt.); halves, Hodge, Nase; forwards, Sargeant, Winter, Thompson,
Eden, Holmes, Forbes.

IMPROVED MIND,
The Food Grape-Nuts.
A famous woman says, "I am so
much in love with Grape-Nuts that
I presume I often bore people telling
them about the new food. You cer
tainly will make an everlasting for
tune from the sale of it. The- article
has become the best known cereal un
the market."
It can baldly be called a ceieal for
it is not like the common rolled wheat
or rolled oats, but it is in the form
of granules, ranging from the size oi
a pin head up to twice or three times
that size.
It ia thoroughly cooked at the factory, and requires no preparation
whatever, but can be served instantly
with hot milk or hot cream to make
a hot mush, or cold cream can be
poured in the aide of the saucer und a
very delicious crisp food is the result.
Not only is the taste fascinating,
but the nutritive value of the food is
very great as shown by the Improved
condition physically and mentally,
of those who use it ten days or two
rrsekt,
