London, Marches.--Whatever nego-
tations are proceeding in Pretoria,
and Mr.Kruger declares that they can
only be tor an armistice, tbe government evidently has no idea oi slackening reinforcements. The war office
issued a detailed statement last evening of transports that are to sail for
South Africa within the coming week
with 12,000 troops.
The casualty list reveals tbe fact
that two officers were killed nt Lieh-
tenberg, March 3. Lord Kitchener's
telegram, "Am sending reinforcements," was dated March 0. Evi-
pently, therefore, the fighting continued for some days and further advices
are awaited with anxiety.
According to the Daily Mail's despatches, General Dewet and Mr.
Steyn have separated, the former being at Petersburg west of Bloemfon

The progress of the   bubonic plague j for adjournment
London, March 7.���The under secre
tory of the foreign office, Lord Camborne, infotmed a questioner that the
text of the dispatch from the British
ambassador at St. Petersburg to the foreign office, reporting the oral promise
of Russia, to the effect that the Russian occupation of Manchuria was
only temporary,had been seen and approved by Count Lamsdorff, Russian
minister of foreign affairs, at the
end of February,
The speaker, Mr. Gully, announced
Unit he had received a letter from Jordan to the effect that he had not defied the authority of the chair (when
a number af Iiish members of parliament were removed from the house by
force on Tuesday) and on the motion
of Mr. Dillon, Mr. Jordan's name
was removed from the list of suspended members.
Mr. Half our then moved his amendment to the rule governing the ana-
pension of recalcitrant members.
In supporting the motion, Mr. Bat-
four said it was necessary to provide
adequate summary punishment for
such physical resistance to the- speaker's orders as occurred Tuesday. He
trusted the house would unanimously
agree to the amendment. The house
ought not lo remain helpless against
a member who committed such an aggravated crime against tho house���an
offence the dangers and reality of
which had been so painfully brought
before them.
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman alluded to the grossly disorderly conduct
of certain members and said he had
not a word of excuse to say in their jus-
ticSation or palliation,but he suggested a modification of Mr. Balfour's
amendment. i
Mr. John Redmond said what had
occurred wai a natural ebullition cf
feeling against an unjust closure. Be
denied it was premediated and sain
the moral responsibility for what had,
occurred was wholly on Mr. Balfour,
whose proposal. noVwas extravagant
and unnecessary.
London, Maroh 7-���Lord Hugh'Cecil
(conservative) moved an amendment
providing that recalcitrant members
should be imprisoned. This was opposed by Mr. Balfour who pointed out
that it would place too much responsibility on the government, and Lord
Hugh Cecil withdrew the proposal.
Several passionate speeches' were
made and the scene was one of great
excitement. Finally having forced a
division by shouting "Aye" when the
speaker i put the question, the Irish
members joined the rest of the honse
is the "No" lobby. The result being
that no one voted for the amendment.
Lord Cecil and 421 voted against it.
An incident which had raised much
bad blood ended am'.d peals ot laughter. Several ineffectual.attempts,were
then made to adjourn the debate, Mr.
Balfour appealed to the house to arrive at a deuision before adjourning
and the debate went on. At 4:30 a..
in., he moved a closure on the motion
but tbe   motion was

London, Maroh 7.���The government
publishes a despatch from the British ambassador at St. Petersburg, Sir
Charles Scott, relating to the assurance given on February (i, by the Russian minister of loreign affairs, Count
Lamsdorff, concerning the Manchuria
affair. It appears that the RuBsian
minister consented on February 27 to
its publication as accurately representing Russia's attitude in the pio-
ceedings in Manchuria.
Sir Charles Scott says In part:
"Count Lamsdorff gave me the true
version of what has taken place very
clearly. He said he had read allegations in the press that Russia had concluded or was now
engaged in concluding with
China a convention for permanent arrangement which would give Russia
new rights and a virtual protectorate
over Southern Manchuria. This he
declared to be quite untrue, asserting
that the only ground for th? rumor
must have been the fact that the Russian military authorities who had
been in the temporary occupation
and pacification of the province
should thus direct when reinstating
the Chinese authorities, to arrange
with the local civil authorities, a modus; vlvendi for the duration~ot the
simultaneous presence of Russians and
Chinese In Southern Manchuria with
the object of preventing a recurrence
of disturbances in the vicinity of the
Russian frontier and of protecting the
railroad from the Russian frontier to
Port Arthur. Some details of the proposed modus vlvendi were sent for
consideration to St. Petersburg but no
convention or arrangement with the
central government of China or of a
permanent character, would be concluded with regard to Manchuria, nor
had the emperor any intention ot departing in any way from the assurance he had publicly given that Manchuria would bo entirely restored to
its former condition in the Chinese
empire so soon as circumstances admitted.
"Russia was in the same position
With regard to fixing the final date
for the evacuation of Manchuria as the
allies found themselves in with regard
$o the evacuation- of Pekin and the
province of Cbi Li. When it came to a
final and complete evacuation of Manchuria,Russia would be obliged to obtain from tire-central government of
China an effective guarantee against
the recurrence of attempts to destroy her railway but she had no intention of seeking in this guarantee
any acquisition of territory or an actual or virtual protectorate of Manchuria, her object being simply to
guarantee the faithful observance In
the future by China of the terms of
the agreement whiuh she had/ been
unable to fulfill during'the disturbance."
The dispatch concludes by repeating
Count LamsJorff's assurance that
there had been no alteration of the
former international status of Man-
chnrla which would be restored when
the temporary military measures had
ceased and that everything at Niu
Chwang and elsewhere would be replaced in the former poaltion.

A TRIBUTE TO TOMMY.
Lord Roberts Praises British Troops
��� For Behavior iii South Africa.
London, March 7.���Loid Roberts,
presiding today at a meeting of the
Army Temperance Society, contrasted
the moderation of the British soldiers!
in South African with previous cam-;
paigns. ��� He said it was true they had
not had many opportunities, but at
Bloemofnteln, Johannesburg and Pretoria, where they did have such opportunity, they were remarkably well
behaved, and he had never heard a
single complaint of a Soldier being
rude or improperly behaved toward
Boer women. The latter and their
children went fearlessly upon tho
streets and the children played and
talked with the British soldiers.
J. C. Drewry,manager of the Canadian Gold Fields syndicate's interests
in this province, was in the city yesterday en route to his home at Rossland after a visit to the company's
Sunset mine at Whitewater. He takes
a most pessimistic view of the general
mining situation, discussing the matter in the following^ terms: "I have
just sent sixteen men down the hill
at the Sunset, retaining only five men
for development work. My company
will not mine ore any further until
the conditions are so altered that we
can operate at a profit. Our mines
Bhould produce 50,000 tons of ore annually and under favorable conditions
this output should net a million dollars. As things are, we could work
our mines and they would  not yield a
PROFIT OF A CENT.
Under these circumstances, we absolutely refuse to go ahead with active operations; and unless conditions
improve our next step will be to close
down the properties as tight as a
drnm and not do another hand's turn
.until tbe situation changes.
'"The government has always pursued a policy opposed to the develop
ment of the country's mineral resources and their proposal to cinch the
mine owners atill further has disgusted everyone interested in the industry. I am prepared to discontinue
operations altogether; and if others
follow my example, as seems inevitable, the situation will work out its
own solution, unless the mining industry be allowed to become
A MATTER OF THE PAST.
"After arriving in Rossland, I propose to visit Southern California and
to remain there until I have-enjoyed a
good holiday. Mining interests in
the Kootenays will not worry me, for
we do not propose to go ahead with
the production of ore as long as existing conditions prevail.
"The-solution of the problem Is to
give us the smelter facilities necessary
to handle the growing ore production
and a refinery to treat the output of
these smelters. The provincial government has had a proposition placed be
fore it by Mr. Green, M. L. A., but
have not heard of the outcome. Other
subsidiary helps to the industry would
be a fair wage and a more reasonable
schedule of transportation charges."
Mr. Drewry claims to voice the sentiments of the- leading mining operators in stating,that, action must be
taken to encourage the Industry if the
future of the- Kootenays is to be
worthy of ��� the mineral lesources
which   the  country undoubtedly pos-
NAVAL WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY.
Washington, March 7.���Since last
autumn the navy department has suspended the experiments in the employment of wireless 'telegraphy as a
means of communication between naval vessels and between vessels and the
shore. Dp to this time none of the
war ships has been equipped with a
permanent plant. While it may be
true that Marconi is coming to the
United States and that he may while
here, communicate to the navy department some proposition looking to
the installing of his own system of
telegraphy on our naval vessels, the
navy department has not yet engaged
him to do so.

longer be collected and retained by
the municipality, but be collected by
government, in return, the government giving the cities an increased
grant per capita for school purposes
as follows: Places with a thousand
average daily attendance, get 813 per
capita; those with 250 average, receive
815, and those with less than 250 get
820. Last year Victoria derived 810,.
000 from this tax. This is now made
up by the per capita grant and 8300
allowed by the government for each
teacher in the high schools.
The Hall Mines smelter blew in another furnace yesterday, and the event
promises to be of considerable importance to the oity. The capacity of the
institution will be doubled by the additional furnace; and the extra ore
which the smelter will thus be enabled
to treat will go far toward relieving
tho pressure of the demand for smelter
facilities. The mechanical roaster,
commenced some time ago, has been
completed, together with the briquet-
ting machine, both features whicli mo
to expedite the process of treatment
materially.
The roaster takes the place of the
hand roasters formerly employed.
When roasting oy harm It was next to
impossible to turn out sufficient calcines to keep two furnaces in operation, hence the adoption of the apparatus in which the hand labor is replaced by a mechanical process. The
briquetting machine takes the calcined product from the roaster and pies��-
es it into the form of bricks. These
bricks, when placed In the furnace
permit the draft to circulate freely,
thus greatly assisting the process of treatment. The operation of
the additional furnace will necessarily
increase the staff of the smeiter, hut
to what extent has not been accurately determined up, to the present time.
The surplus of ore at the smelter has
been used up, and further supplies of
raw material are being hurried from
the C. P. R. yards, where a quantity
of ore is lying.

SOUTH AFRICA.
There seems little doubt now that
negotiations foi a termination of hostilities in South Africa ure proceeding
between Lord Kitchener, Sir Alfred
Milner and Commandant General
Louis Botha,und the announcement of
the surrender of the latter is looked
lor at any time. Just to what extent
Botha's anticipated action may effect
the other sections of the Boer army
is not clear, but it is hard to believe
that Dewet and other Boer leaders
will hold out very much longer after
the members of Botha's brigade have
laid down tlioir arms. Everybody can
propound a scheme for capturing lie
wet and pacifying South Africa in
double quick time. One aindtcur
Kitchener presents a plan which he
says is suggested by common sense
and historical precedent. He would
introduce at once British settlers on
the land and in the mining districts
in tha annexed colonies. It was the
plan adopted by Cromwell in Ireland;
by the Americans in regard to the In
dians. And it would not be difficult to
show, in at least a score of other instances, that this plan, had it been
carried out firmly would have brought
to a satisfactory issue problems which
were at the time considered insoluble.
To take, first, the Transvaal mining
districts, refugees should be allowed
to go in sufficient numbers not only
to work the mines but to settle in the
neigborhood around Johannesburg,
both miners and settlers taking their
share in the defence of the country.
British settlers should likewise be
placed in every district of the Orange
Kiver colony, side by side with the
Dutch population. They should be
provided with arms to defend themselves. Thus the British military
forces would have around them a
friendly population, just as tlie Boer
guerilla forces have today. Forts
should be built for the protection of
the settlers, and placed at intervals
along the lines of communication.
By such a plan there would be no need
to take upon ourselves the onus of the
defence and sustenance of the families of belligerent Boers. Pastoral,
agricultural, and mining operations
would go on, and revenue would be
collected, while at the finish of the
guerilla period the country, instead of
being an arid desert,would be well on
the way to agricultural and mining
recuperation.
NO QUACKS WANTED.
The proposal put forward by the
friendly societies of Victoria that
the province of British Columbia
should be opened to the medical profession at large, has, very properly,
aroused the ire of doctors in every portion of the province and also alarmed
many private citizens who scent dan
ger of the likelihood of the proviuce
being filled up with quae1 s. It was
suggested by the societies that graduates from universities or medical
schools should be admitted to practice
here without any preliminary restrictions. In a letter to the Colonist Mr.
O. C. Bass deals with that point very
effectively. He says: "Now it must
be borne in mind that such graduates cannot, under their university diploma, practice in the province In
which they have graduated. Take Toronto, for Instance. Theie are three
or four medical schools there, yet a
graduate from one of them could not
practice in Toronto or Ontario until
he had pa��sod the examinations ret by
the medical council. Further than
that���the examinations by the council
are much different from and more
difficult than those of the college. The
college graduate has to take the council's matriculaton. primary, intermediate and final exams, and has to pay
the fees. It is the same in Quebec.
A McGill graduate has to go before
the medical council of the Province of
Quebec and pass their examinations to
authorize him to practice. It is the
same in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick
and Manitoba. Now it is proponed
thta British Columbia should receive
with open arras these men and boys
who will not be accepted in their own
province until they have proved that
they are safe to bo allowed to practice
on   the   public.    The other  provinces
offer no reciprocity Iu this inspect,
anil if one of our pi'Hctitinuers tuok a
notion to live in one of those provinces he iv,mid have to take all those
examinations before he could practice
there. Fancy Dr. Davie, Dr. O. M.
.loncs, Hr. Eraser, Dr. Helmcken or
any of the other leading practitioners
lieic sitting down to write a paper on
mental arithmetic, or geography, or
answering Mich questions as where is
Timbiictoo to show that they were
qualified to practice medicine. On
the other hand the examinations here
arc of the most liberal character
They deu! solely with the applicant's
ability as a medical man, and arc
based on purelv common sense lines,
and In the interests of public safety.
There is not "ven tlie holding of a degree insisted upon, and there are in-
stuces at every examination wheie the
utmost leniency, consistent with pub
lie safely, has been shown to appll
cants."
Canada is paying her share of the
price of umpire, as a glance at the list
of Canadians killed in South Africa
amply testifies.
The government is to be commended for having introduced a bill granting free miners' certificates to the re
turned South Africun volunteers.
John Redmond utters complaint
because the British house of commons
rushed through a vote of ��17,000,000
without affording him time for ade
quate discussion. It wus a dirty Irish
trick.
Senator Morgan is busily engaged
in twisting the British lion's tall. It
seems a pastime almost entirely de
void of any clement of danger to the
twister when ull the circumstances
arc considered.
That Nolson is not to be numbered
among the one-horse towns is elo
quently demonstrated in the annunce-
ment that so great a star as Albani,
the famous Canadian songstress, has
made an engagement to sing here next
month.
It is understood that the only rea
son why passengers on the Spokane
Falls .t Northern trains bound for
Nelson do not get off and walk to
town is because they do not want to
have to wait around in the cold at the
station for their baggage to arrive.
The manager of ihe Granby smelter
speaks veiy optimistically of the out
look for mining and smelting operations in the Boundary. As sufficient
ore has been blocked out to keep the
Granby smelter at its present capacity fully engaged for the next 13 years
Ins optimism sees justided.

Crease in the capture of the prisoner,

Fast on the heels of the announce
ment that Mr. Joseph Martin is contemplating retirement comes the
news that J. M. Kellie is girdling up
his loins preparatory to stepping into

The outcome  of the  debate  in tbe

way companies will   be awaited with
profound   interest.    But   whether the
bills   confirming   the   agreement   are
passed or not, the  opposition   against

merrily for many months' to   come,

From the time of the first announce
ment of the'.huge plan for giving over
the Crow's Nest Pass coal mines to the
control of the Standard Oil monopoly,
Tho Province has spared no efforts to
make It clear to the people of British
Columbia that grave peril threatens
not only the prosperity and develop
ment of provincial industries, but
their existence itself. It has been
pointed out again and again in these
columns that British Columbia" stands
in danger of passing into the lelentless
grip of (me of tlie most cruel combines
that ever existed, and that a region
which should be developed for the benefit of the province will, if tlie intentions of u certain clique are allowed
to be carried Into effect, bo developed
only by the paying of u continued tri
bute of million.-, of dollars a year to a
gang of grasping aliens. It has been
pointed out that the Canadian Pacific
railway's light in this matter has
been the fight for national existence
and hence that It behooves every patriotic Canadian to oppose in every
way the consummation of the deal
whicli would turn over the CrP ''8
Nest Pass coal mines to J. J. Hill, J.
Plerpont Morgan and J. D. Rockefeller.���Vancouver Province.

AN.EX-MEMBEB'S  OPINIONS
���About the Weak Points of the Dunsmuir Government.
J. M. Kellie, e.\-M. P, P., who torso long represented tboRevelstoke riding waa seen by a Lardeau Eagle representative in Eevelstoke the other
day. Spending of the Dunsmuir government Mr. Kellie said that it was
kept in power, not because It represented a majority of the people, but
because ot the widespread antagonism
to Joe Martin. It was really for
negative '-reasons that the present
government held the reins. The people
did not want them, but still less did
they want a government with Joe
Mri'rtln at its head. -Even at
that the government dure not Introduce contentious legislation, nnd were
liable to go to pieces at any moment.
Further, the premier had displayed
much inconsistency with regard to
Oriental labor. His dismissal of all
but white labor fiom his mines had
been loudly proclaimed after his accession to power. Since then, however,
there had been much dissatisfaction
among the white miners who had replaced the Orientals, and the recent
disaster' at the Union mines had
brought out the fact that Chinese and
Japanese were still employed there.
This could not but unpopulsrizo the
government with' the labor unions.

since for the protection of industrial
property as affected by tlie registration of patents, trade marks, etc. The

POLICE UNIFORMS���
Fred 3. Squire is engaged in the
work of getting out the new uniforms
for the citv police force. The material
is to be blue serge of good quality
with the regulation collar and buttons.
STARTING WORK���
The city's stone crusher will probably be placed in position today on
the Victoria street quarry for the purpose of getting out material to be uned
in the completion of the authorized
work. This consists principally of the
section of Baker street.a short stretch
of surfacing near the Bank of Montreal and the surfacing at the corner
of tlall street.
NELSON MINSTRELS-
The Nelson minstrels are practicing
rugnlarly for their approaching entertainment. Last night a number of
the members of the company were at
the opera house and rehearsed the
songs for the first part. The repertoire
of solos and choruses is particularly
good, and if the balance of the concert
is up to the standard of the first part
the minstrels will easily make as big a
hit as on previous occasions.
POSTAL MATTERS���
The convenience of Nelsonites receiving registered mail from the United States will be served by a recent
order from the postmaster-general's
department making Spokane the distributing point for the Kootenays for
registeied mail. It is asserted that
registered matter will be available
here three days earlier than formerly,
when Seattle wus the distributing
point.
COT TWO YEARS���
ileorge Emory was arraigned before
Judge Crease yesterday for sentence
on the charge of obtaining money under false pretences. He was sentenced to two years' impiisonment in the
provincial penitentiary ond will further be tried for the offence of jail
lireaking. W. II. Uullcek-Webster,
chief oi provincial police, is confined
to his home with a banly injured
knee, the result of a fall while pursuing Emory during the lstter's ineffe:-
uial attempt to escape on Tuesday.
IS SHIPPING ORE���
Mining operations are being carried
on at the Keystone property ou
Whiskey creek near Erie, and shipments are being made to the North-
port smelter. Tlie claim is being
worked by the Finch-Campbell syndicate, and information as to tbe values
obtained is difficult to obtain but a
general impression exists that the
property is unusually promising. William H. Barbour of this city, owns
the Deleware. immediately adjoining
the Keystone.
ORE COMING DOWN���
Arrangements are being made to
have a steamer visit the Crawford
creek landing on Sunday to remove
some 5,000 sacks of ore. aggregating
���J00 tons, from the Silver Hill mine.
The shipments from the London Consolidated group this winter will og-
gregate a large tonnage and there are
100 tons more at the mine to be raw
hided to the wagon road if weather
permits. Henry Roy, manager of the
property, is still in the city, and will
remain here until the ore is delivered
at the smelter.
JONES IS OFF���
Joseph T. Jones leaves this morning
for England, Mayor Fletcher having received a check from Jones' rela
tives In London sufficient to cover a
passage home. Jones came to this
district a year or two ago with a little money and a total lack of ballast.
The result was that in a comparatively short time he was penniless and
practically dependent on charity for
enough to exist upon. One of his achievements was to purchase a worthless mineral claim which was staked
for his especial benefit by some practical jokers.
VISITING THE COAST-
Thc Vancouver World of Monday
says: "A. J. Marks, of Nelson, and
one of Vancouver's pioneer citizens, is
in the city. Mr. Marks lias many
friends in this city, who are extending to him a cordial greeting. It Is
seven years since Mr. Maiks was here
before,and in that period the transformation in Vancouver in bis estimation
has been simply phenomenal, and he
is proud to see it. Nelson is likewise
a good town, is growing rapidly, and
owing to its geographical position,
its railway and steamboat facilities,
and the natural resources of the surrounding country, is destined to become the metropolis of the interior.
Mr. Marks is a guest at the Lelaud
for the night, and goes to Victoria tomorrow."
THE ARLINGTON MINE.
It is To Be Placed on the Producing
Stage at Once.
The Arlington mine at Erie has
reached the point where it is to be
placed on a producing stage at once.
H. E. T. Haultain, consulting engineer for the Hastings A li. C. company, returned from the property last
night and states tbat everything is
looking unusually well. He has placed
an order with the Gates Iron Works
of Chicago for a concentrating plant,
which is to be delivered by April 1.
On the start it is proposed to put in
a small mill with a capacity of 50
tons daily, but the apparatus will be
so constructed that additions can be
made at any time if the results are
satisfactory. A tramway is also to
be built to connect the mine with the
mill, a distance of 2.OU0 feet. This
work is to be commenced at once together with the building of a Hume,
the lumber for which is now at the
Erie station. The mill will be operated by steam powci.
The prog'amine of development
mapped out for tbe Arlington is now
completed, a crew of 35 men having
been employed for a year or more in
development work, of which fi.ono
feel has been done. In view of this
fact the crew has been temporarily reduced to ten men, who will continue
work along the lines followed up to
the present time. It is estimated that
the concentrator should be in operation by June 1 next. While no statement has been made by tbe management, it is understood that a large
tonnage of ore has been blocked out
in tbe mine, and that a large proportion of the concentrates will net very
high returns. The ore is quartz with
iron pyrities and galena, carrying
gold values principally and varying in
richness with the locality in the
mine from which it is taken.

The
TO START WORK���
Robert Nelson leaves today for the
Juno mine to start work on his new
contract for aiKJ feet of tunnelling,
operations having been delayed for
a few days. The work is to be done
rapidly,but means about three months
work at best. Mr. Nelson, In add!
tion to a couple of tons of provisions,
rails, etc.. is taking a ventilating
stove and several hundred feet of tin
pipe. The stove is erected at the
mouth of the tunnel und the pipe extended in to the face. The heating of
the stove causes a current to Bow out-
woid through the pipe, and by this
means constant fresh air is drawn to
the face and smoke withdrawn in a
very short time.

If patents will give just a little intelligent thought to the feeding of
their childrtn the difference in tlie
health of the little folks will pay,
many times over, for the smnll trouble.
A mother writes saying, "Our children are all so much better nnd
stronger than they have ever been
since we made a change In the character of tbe food. We have quit using

THE OAS COMPANY
Yesterday the Anniveisary of Introduction of the Illuminant in Nelson.
One year ago today the Nelson Coke
& Gas company turned gas Into the
mains throughout the elty and commenced supplying customers with
their product. The occasion was
somewhat noteworthy as an indication of the progress which tlie Queen
city of the Kootenays had made, and
also as marking the consummation of
an industry which had involved the
investment here of a sum aggregating
close to 8100,000. The new illuminant
became popular, a fact which is demonstrated when it Is stated that during the year the company has supplied
four million feet of gas for consumption Id the city.
Among tlie very first consumers were
The Miner ollice and the Hudson's
Bay company, but the list of users has
grown rapidly until gas is now used
in 110 business houses, storesaud residences. It is utilized for lighting,
heating, cooking and assaying. Manager Fred Burnett states that the gas
company is looking for a large increase in business this summer,particularly in the line of cooking, foi
which gas has several strong points
over ordinary fuel. The company is
thoroughly satisfied with the outlocli
for business and with the prospect for
the city's growth ill population.

A DEEP MYSTERY.
It is a mystery why women endure
Backache, Headache, Nervousness,
Sleeplessness, Melancholy, Fainting
and Dizzy Spells when thousands have
proved that Electric Bitters will core
.{tiickly such troubles. "I suffered
for years with kidney trouble," writes
Mrs. I'hebe Cherley, of   PetersoD, la.,
"and a lame back pained me so I
could not dress myself, but Electric
Bitters wholly cured me, and, although 73 years old, I now am able to
do all my housework." It overcomes
Constipation, improves Appetite, gives
perfect health. Only 50c, at Canada

Moore, next to Nelson Hotel, has
what you want.
QUESTION   ANSWERED.
Yes,August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine In the civilized world. Y'our mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. 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 tbe
matter with vou. For sale bv W. F.
