Vamiou'er, Dee. 4.���The hold-up
man is again terrorising Vancouver.
Hewitt Becker was held np last night
sl tho point of a revolver in Mount
Pleasant district by a masked man
and relieved of jewelry and eash.
Anmlier masked man tried to hold up
H. M. Thomson with a revolver. A
fight ensued In which Thomson was
bruised considerably by the lootpads
flsts. Tbe fontpad ran away after
being severely beaten and knocked
down liy a cane in the hands of
Thomson.
The report ix again published today
that thousands of Japanese are coming
to llritish i uliiiiiiiiii this season and
thai liilior contractors are preparing
(or Iheni; that each steamer arriving
from the Orient will be allowed by
[lie Japanese government to carry 00
passengers.
To a Miner correspondent tonight,
Mr. Sliimizu, the Japanese' consul
general, characterized the publication
as entirely wrong from beginning to
fn(', tbat no emigration was allowed
lrom Japan to British Columbia and
those returning from visits even, must
show Canadian residence by consular
papeis.
The steamer City of Seattle arrived
this evening with few passengers;
she had passed the Amur IIvh hours behind. The Port Muster had arrived
from Dawson just prior to her sailing.
Three   thousand   dollars   worth   of
j whiskey has been seized  on the Cari-
hoo road en route  to   Dawson.     Four
thousand  dollars  worth   of   fine   imported whiskey was consflcated.
Uawson expects to be an incorporated oity in a week. It is conceded
that It. P. McLcllan, of McLellan and
MoFcoley, Vancouver, will be elected
tho first mayor of Dawson City.
St. Andrew's day was celebrated in
royal style ut Dawson. Tickets for
Ihe hall and supper were $15 each.
Humor is again revived that Theo.
Midgato.of Seattle, and associates are
to build a big sawmill and shingle
mill in Vancouver. This time the
tumor seems founded on fact as a pile
driver and 4.U0O piles are being purchased fur work to be done at once on
'he mill site recently acquired by
Theo. I.rjdgnte, Mayor Scott, of Westminster, and associates, said to be
Mine, in conjunction with Michigan
capitalists. Theo. Ludgate was stop-

government from defacing Deadman's

Vancouver harbor, by erecting a mill

SITUATION AT SANDON.
Work   Steadily   Progressing-Smelter
Proposition���Laboi Conditions,
M. (lintzburger, of Sandon, came
in yesterday to attend the annual
meeting of the Mine Owners' association to be held today. Mr. (lintzburger while in Scotland recently
made arrangements for the oapital
necessary to construct a smelter in
Kootenay with the probable location
on Kootenay lake.
The smelter expert on whose report
Ihe capitalists will invest or withhold
their money, was on the steamer due
in New York yesterday and will come
direct to Kootenay. This smelter
would be entirely distinct from any
mine and would rely on doing a custom business culy. It bad been mentioned as being an adjunct of the
Monitor mine, of which Mr. (lintzburger is manager, but Mr. (lintzburger affirms that this is not the case.
Though priced of lead and of silver are
not encouraging just now but Mr.
(lintzburger is confident in thc opinion that conditions will soon change
for the better. 'the cutting of the
price of lead in the United States
would olose up quite a number of
the lead mines there reducing thc
production of lead and incidentally
of silver to a ceitain extent.
Mr. (lintzburger reports steady work
iu the mines in tbe vicinity of Sandon
though the lack of snow lias interfered
with shipping to some extent. Tlie
Slocan Star is now shipping its ore
without concentration as experiment
has shown that to give better results.
Shipments are not being pushed in
general but a great deal of work is
being done.
Discussing the labor situation at
Sandon Mr. (lintzburger said things
were going on nicely, quito a number
of the minors wero buildii g houses in
Sandon, evidently being satisfied witb
present conditions. Tho officers of
the union seemed reasonable, prudent
men and he was glad to see it so.
Unions had their place to fill and
with good men at their heads he had
no objection to them. There had been
more friction in tbe oountry than he
thought there was any necessity for.
He instanoed Mr. Uobbins, of Nanaimo, who dealt with bis men through
the secretary of the union and had
had no trouble with them.
If all those engaged in the mining
industry said Mr. Uintzbnrger, would
work together politically the industry
would have a weight in legislation
that would relieve it of many of its
burdens. If the mines were not paying the owners they could not be
operated at a high rate of wages, but
if the conditions for their operation
were good the miners got some of tlie
advantage, if miners got the regular
rate of wages and the assurance of
steady work whenever tbe mines could
be operated at profit, be believed thut
the men would work to obtain the
objects the owners wero striving for
and the owners and men voting together would carry a political weight
that nothing could resist.

A BLOODY DUEL.
Harris
who
schooner's captain ordered 400 pounds
of freih meat,also butter,milk, sugar,
jdrioil apples nnd all necessity pro-
visons to stock his schooner for the
remainder of tho vOyBge, Then he
asked Capt. Gillespie to sign a bill for
Ithe same which he would present to
I Urtle the United States consul at Victoria,
but Ibe captain refused to sign the
bill,and ordered his men ashore where
tbey camped on tbe beach. This action
discomfited Capt. Crowell of the
Arilla, somewhat and he refused to
take the provisions which bad been
Many   Disasters   tO   Shipping I ordered, and left them on   Capt.   (iil-
'lespie's hands. He was, however,
obliged to pay lor 130 pounds o moat.
Capt. Gillespie says he Is sorry be had
to ask Capt.Crowell for assistance, for
it seemed to be the idea of the
schooner's master that he would
benefit because of thc assistance rendered. Capt. Cruwell was short of
provisions when he took the men nil'
the Highland Light,but a considerable
quantity was transferred from the
sinking bark to the schooner.
The schooner Arilla, which arrived
at such an opportune time for ihe
crew of the Highland Light, has herself had a rough time of it. She left
the Sound in June with lumber and
coal for Cape Nome and arrived there
in due time. She started on hei return trip on September 20. She called
at Dutch Harbor and sailed again on
October 22, her destination being
Victoria, culling at any port on route
to trade. The coast of Vancouver
island was first sighted on November
(1th, and since that time the little vessel has been attempting to enter the
straits. Time and time again she approached the entrance of the strails
only to be blown out to sea again by
the heavy storms which have been
prevalent during thc month. This
was unfortunate for tho crew of the
schooner but very lucky for the men
on the Highland Light.
Astoria, Ore., Dec. 4.���The British
tug Tatoosh which has just returned
to port, reports that the llritish ship
Nelson, Cult. Per a X, turned turtle
last night, and went to the bottom
with her entire crew. Tho Nelson
left Astoria, November 23rd. On
Monday, she was ba-dr. at the river's
moutb and yesterday was reported to
have shifted her cargo. She had a
bad iist to starboard and could go on
only one tack. Yesterday afternoon
the tng Tatoosh went out and picked
up the Nelson, passing a hawser. The
tug started off shore with her owing
to the gale. It was the intention of
the Tatoosh to remain off Cape Heal
witb the ship during the night. The
gale that raged last night was too
severe for the vessel to withstand and
she broke from the tug and then turned turtle, sinking at once.
In the darkness it was impossible
for tbe tug to render assistance to the
members of the crew who were not
carried own, and all perished. The
Nelson carried a crew of 28 men all
told. She wns an old wooden vessel
Capt. Geb. Woods, the bar pilot, was
to have been placed aboard the ship
last night but the weather was too
rough to permit it. The Nelson
carried a cargo of lumber and was
consigned to Capetown, South Africa
by Taylor, Yonng and Co., of this
city.

Narrow   Escape   of   drew   of Barque
Highand Light.
Viotoria, Deo. 4.���The bark Highland Light, Capt. IC. H. Gillespie,
coal laden from Tacoaia on November
Oth for San Francisco, foundered on
November 10th during a heavy southeast gale in latitude 48,30 north and
longitnde 128 west, 80 miles off the
Vanoouver island coast. All bands
were saved, being taken off the sinking vessel by the 40-ton schooner
Arilla, of Seattle, bound from Cape
Nome to Victoria, whioh arrived in
the nick of time to save Capt. Gillespie aim his crew of 14 from a grave In
the waters of the North Pacific.
It was on November 10 that the
Arilla which a kind providence had
drifted back from Cape Flattery to the
scene of the Highland Light, was
sighted from thc fast sinking bark,
and in answer to Capt. Gillespie's
signals of distres, his ensign flying
upside down, the schooner stood by
and the crew of the Highland Light
went over to her through the high
seas in the bark's boats. All reached
the schooner's deck in safety, and
just in time, for the old coasting bark
was by that time rolling over burying her tails and with her yards
touching the seas as she swung from
aide to side, now with the water up
to the centre of her batches on the
port side, nud then on the starboard
side. She was almost rolling right
over. It was just in time that her
crew was taken off, for bad the Arilla
not arrived when the did, lt seems
that the Highland Light must have
foundered with all on board and her
fate would have been wrapped in that
mystery which covers every vessel,
whose end is simply announced as
"posted as missing.'1
The bark was leaking from the time
she left Tacoma and getting into
succession of blows oft the Cape, the
water continued to rise in her hold
The men retrained oontinnally to tbe
pumps and were exhausted when
tnken off and tno pumps wero just
about played out.
After landing they made themselves
as comfortable ns possible in a bunk
house on thc beach awaiting the arrival of the Queen City which brought
them to Victoria. Tbe only one who
shows the effects of the exposure is
Mr. Henry, the bark's niato, who is
very weak.

LAHORI EXPLAINS.

Drcyfii sards.
Paris. Dec. 4.���Labor!, counsel Ior
Dreyfus in his great trial, hm begun
a series of articles in his magazine,
the Grand Review, on his relation to
Dreyfus and other DrcyFuaards. Tho
witbdrawal from Labor! of the brief
he held for M. Reinacb, against whom
Mine. Henri hns brought suit, is the
primary cause of this step. Labori
considers that Dreyfus' acceptance of
a pardon removes the question from
a high moral plane to one of pure
personality and it has ceased to be
human and universal. He also states
that he coasud to bu Dreyfus' counsel
a year ago but M. Riinnch persuaded
him to continue as his counsel as a
break then would be fatal to his
cause.
A friend of Rienach and of the
Dreyfus family in nn interview slates
that Labori wished Dreyfus to remain
in prison and continue the fight for
rehabilitation, nnd that Reinacb with-
drew his brief beonuso his friend Cor-

ROOSEVELT'S MESSSAOE.
The message of President Roosevelt
to the American congress is one of
the strongest yet delivered. It Is able,
simple, free from affectation, or
boasting and iB tho message oi a
strong man who is determined to do
his whole dtity conscientiously and
firmly and without fear or favor.
There is not a weak spot ln the entire
message and not a line that truckles
to any interest,corporate or otherwise,
and it looks as though the people of
the United States had secured a president Jpf more than ordinary ability.
In the message there are vigorous and
definite views on the trusts, iu favor
of thu construction of the Panama
canal, it says the Chinese exclusion
act must be reenacted, defines his
idea of the Monroe doctrine, and dis
cusses a number of important ques
tions. Mr. Roosevelt is broad and fair
in his treatment of foreign relations
and there is none of the "we can whip
all creation'' spirit shown, whicb has
sometimes been displayed in similar
documents by a few of his predecessors in the presidential seat.
One ot the measures which he
strongly recommends is the construction of the Isthmian canal. He says
that while Its benefits would be, perhaps, more marked on the Pacific coast
and upon the Gulf and thc south
Atlantic states it would also benefit
other portions of ihe country.
llritish Columbia, more than any
other Rritish possession, is interested
in the building of tbe canal. It would
add considerably to the value of the
timber areas of the province, as it
would plaoe this country within about
8,0(10 miles by water of Great Uritian,
and this would open up a large market for our lumber and timber of all
kinds. It wonld virtually cut in two
the water journey for stcamors and
sailing vesslcs between Victoria,
Vanoouver and Liverpool and South,
ampton and the salmon, halibnt and
other produots of the province could
be sent through in about half the
time which is occupied in voyages via
Cape Horn. Then too, considerable
ore, which owing to its rebellious
character, is diilloult, to treat in thc
reducing plants of tbls section, could
bo sent to Swansea and other reduction works in Europe where they have
the facilities for the economic reduction and for thc extraction of all the
values. The cost of thc water haul
would not be as great as is sometimes
charged for the haulage of ores from
points ln llritish Colombia to such
places as Denver and Omaha in thc
United States. Were there plenty of
ore available tramp steamers and
sailing vessels should transport ore
from Vancouver lo Swansea for from
97 tc 810 per ton. Resides this thc
people of British Columbia, when the
canal is finished,can purchase English
goods ai.iint as cheaply as the people
of Eastern Canada can, owing to the
decrease In thu distance by water between tho two countries mnde possible by the canal, Tlie canal across the
isthmus of l'annma is perhaps the
most important matter to the people
of liritlsh Columbia referred to by
Mr. Roosevelt
The recommendation which Mr.
Roosevelt makes to tho Chinese restriction act to the clTect thnt the
act should bo rcenautud iu an
other matter of Importance to the
people of llritish Columbia. It Is certain now, as President Roosevelt has
recommended it. that the act will he
reenacted. This will strengthen the
hands of thoso in this province
who are endeavoring to cheek the incoming tide of Oriental immigration.
If on the other band, the chief executive of thc United States had been
favorable to Chinese and had stated in
his message that he considered it
unwise to reennct the exclusion not
It is very probable lhat his party
wonld follow his lead and refuse to
rcadopt such nn aot In that event,
it would wenken the anti-Oriental
cause in this province so that nothing
could perhaps be done for many years.
of 20 years and are determined to continue the same policy for at least another decade and perhaps longer.
Turning from that which is provincial to that whicb will affect the
Dominion in tbe message it Is found
that Mr. Roosevelt says it is not
only possilbe but desirable to combine
with the protective system a supplementary system of reciprocal benefit
and ooligation with other nations.
"Such reciprocity is an incidental result of our present eceonomio policy
and was specially provided in the
present tariff law and must be treated
as the handmaid of protection." There
is no other country with which the
United States oould gain more advantage by a reciprocal treay than with
Canada, and such a treaty, properly
and wisely drawn would be of great
benefit to Canada. It is very probable, therefore, as the advantages will
not be one-sided that before Mr.
Roosevelt's terra has expired an
equitable reciprocal treaty will have
been arranged between tbe two
countries.
The recommendations regarding the
anarchists and to thc effect that they
should be nandled by the federal authorities are eminently wise in character. They ehow that Mr. Roosevelt,
while first an American, has nothing
tint is provincial in his makeup. He
very truly says that thc crime of the
anarchist should be made an offense
against tbe law of nations, like
piracy, and that form of man-stealing
known as the slave trade, for it is far
blacker infamy than either. It should
be so declared by treaties amongst all
civilized nations. Such treaties would
give to thc tederal governmont the
power of dealing with the crime.
EAD SITUAT O   .
The conference on the lead question
between the representatives of the
American silver-lead miners and of
the lead trust-is still on in New York,
but so far no agreement has been
reached. The trust seems to be between the devil and the deep sea. On
the one side, it has a surplus of about
40,000 tons of lead which it has paid
four cents per pound for, and on the
other, it wishes to cut down the price
which it is paying to the lead producers. If it does this it fears that
the present price of lead will drop
and it will los�� a million or more on
its accumulated stook. If, on the
other hand, it lowers the price to the
lead producers beyond that which the
latter consider equitable they threaten
to form a combine, erect smelters and
to manipulate the market for themselves. In order to checkmate such a
move as this the trust threatens to
come into Rritish Columbia where it
says it can purchase all the lead it
wants for (1.40 per hundred weight.
Thc H. .(/. lead can be taken into
thc United States, the duty Upon it
of 1 l-i| cents por pound paid and so
tho trust oan get its lead at about
$2.90 per 100 pounds.iustead of 4 oents
per pound which it Is paying at present to the American mine owners.
Thus the parties at interest back and
fill, and are in liking all sorts of moves
in order that one interest may get the
better of the other. It is evident,
however, tnat the trnst is simply using
the British Colnmbia lead producers
as a weapon with whioh to beat the
American mine owners into submis
sion. Thc United States is producing
more lead than it oan consume and
has a surplus on hand and it would
not be good policy to admit much
foreign lead.
An agreement will probably be arrived at under whioh the lead producers will be paid something over
three cents and something less than
four cents for their lead, with the
understanding that there shall be a
restriction of tbo output until the
surplus shall have been worked off
nnd then priced will soar to the old
figures. In thu meanwhile as little
llritish Columbia lead as possiblo will
bu admitted to the United States.
now long will the silver-lead miners
of llritish Columbia allow themselves
to be the mere shuttlecocks to be played on by the nattlcdoors In the hands
of the lead trust and mine owners of
the United Stacs? The one way out of
thc dilllcullies with whioh they (ind
themselves encompassed is to miild
tho refinery and so become independent of the mnoliinatioiis of the trust.
At tho meeting to be held today something tangible should be done beyond
merely discussing the situation ic an
academic manner.

Gentlemen ! I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmnlene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for tbr> past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your Bign upon your
windows on 130 th street, Now York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife oommenced takiog it about tho first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using ono bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are arllioted with this distressing disease.

Charles Dundee of the Dundee mine
in nt tho l'hair. For the past two
weeka he has been at the Dundee
mine near Ymir. An English syndicate lias under contemplation tbe purchase of the property, and In order
Hint it might be examined by Bernard
Macdonald on behalf of the syndicate
it was pumped out. The task occupied nearly two weeks and cost about
}!,(i00. Mr. Macdonald has made the
examination and appeared to be satis-
fi��l wilh the property. Soon hiB rc-
jort will be forwarded to London and
then tho syndicate will determine
whether or not it will purchase the
property. The Dundee is one of tho
niont promising mining properties in
the vicinity of Ymir. Considerable
work lias been done upon it. The
main shaft is down 200 feet and considerable drifting has been done, tbe
work   aggregating    about   750    feet.

It was stated that negotiations were
in progress looking to tne resumption

ot the best knowu in the Ymir district. Already several hundred tons
of ore of high grade have been shipped from the Black Cock mine to tbe
Nelson and Noi'thport smelters. The
outcrop ot ore on the surface is one of
the best defined In the district, and in
Hie opinion of mining men who have
visited the property it Is only a question of time and money before the
Illnck Cock will develop into one of
die large mines of the district. The
ore is almost identical with that of
tho Ymir mine situated about one
mile distant. The last shipment of
ore from the Black Cock mine aver-
��Ked $40 to the ton.

There was no session of the Supreme
court yesterday as no oases were ready
lor trial. Imperial vs. Valpariso will
be on trial today. A settlement has
been arranged in the case of George
vs. the Wallaco-Miller company.
Tbe funeral of the late M. Whitney
took place yesterday afternoon from
the undertaking parlors of D Mc-
Arthur and Co., to the city cemetery
In spite of thc inclement weather R
considerable number of the deceased's
friends and acquaintenccs attended the
funeral.
The attendance and number of
books taken from the library curing
the month of November shows an increase over October though there were
two holidays. The total number of
visitors was 1748, or an average of 03
a day. In October the averaga was 53
a day. There were 310 books taken
out, an average of 13 a day. Several
books, chiefly in papor cover, were
donated during the month and also a
series of the army and navy list extending down to September of 1001
lrom P. Lamont.
Work has not yet been started on

son, replacing the former structure,
which was erected before it was expected that so much traffic would have
to be accommodated as Is at present
the case. The putting in of these
bridges as well as the permanent
oharaoter of the repair work and improvements being made along tho line
of the Crow's Nest, and boundary
section of the C. and VV. railway,
wonld indicate that it will not be far
distant when this will be made tbe
main line. A portion of the work on
tbe bridge at the crossing will have
to ��e done during the low water of
the winter, but the largest part of the
construction can be done at any stage
of water.

LOOK IT UP
Ocffee Is The Cause of Yonr
Trouble.
Eating or drinking the wrung kino
ot food or beverage will set updisease
if persisted in. That is particularly
true of the more starchy foods and
coffee. The trouble may show in a
variety of different ways.
It is safe to say that if one is ailing
in any part of the body reached by
the nervous system, it would be of
advantage to such an one tc exchange
ooffee for Postum Food Coffee, and
quit much use of whito bread and
take on Orape-Nuts Hrcakfast Food.
A New York man's experience is
worth knowing He says, "I was
for a long time troubled with general
weakness and loss of ambition, without knowing the cause. Always after
eating I would Hnd myself practically
helpless, and whon I reached home at
night could only find relief after
dinner by throwing myself on tbe
lounge and hardly speaking a dczen
words to my family the entire evening, and as a last resort, go to bed.
I could look back to the days when
I wbh athletic and full of ambition,
but what made the change I oould not
figure out. I lost eighteen pounds of
flesh, and seemed to bo entering a
chronic state of invalidism.
One day my   eye   caught   the argument in one of   the advertisements   of
PoBtum Food   Coffee, and   it oconrred
to me that perhaps coffee was   getting
in   its   work   on   me     without     my
knowledge.      At   any rate I must   do
something,    so   I quit drinking coffee
altogether and took   on   Postum,   and
also   began   tho   use   of   (irape-Nnts
llreiikfasl. Food.      In   a   short time   I
began to enjoy life again.   Found myself running up stairs   two steps   at a
time,   and a general return of energy,
ambition and strength.     I   not   only
regained my eighteon pounds   but pnt
seven more on   top   of   it.     Now   we
always have Grape-Nuts   and   Postum
each meal.      The   children drink   the
Food Coffee as well as wife   and   myself, and I   will guarantee there is no
healthier family   in New York,   Phil.

in the city yesterday on business connected with the RoBslaml-Bonanza and

he is interested.
J. Hi. Wallace arrived from Atlin
yesterday. He is in the employ of the
Bank of Commerce and has been
transferred to Nelson to replace Mr
(loidon, who hns been transferied to
the Greenwood branch.
Yesterday Robertson and Co. sent a
large consignment of furniture to
Grand Forks for the fitting up of the
residences of tho ofllcials. the offices
and the section houses of the Grand
Forks and Iiepublio railway.
The young people of the Christian
Endeavor Society ot thc Presbyterian
church held a very successful cobweb
social in tho parlors of the church last
evening. Refreshments were served
and a very enjoyable time spent.
At the regular meeting of the Sons
of England last evening arrangements
were made for holding a banquet
some time in January. Thc annual
meeting for the election of officers
will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 18th.
A large boulder, weighing about
five tens yesterday morning rolled
down on the Nelson-Granite wagon
road just west of the railway trestle
crossing it. The road is now totally
blocked and several wagons that were
loaded with firewood being brought to
Nelson had to be left on the other side
oi the barrier until it is cleared
away. The road generally has stood
the long spell of wet weather very
well and, with the exception of a few
soft Bpots and the bonldei mentioned,
is in very good condition.
The annual meeting of the British
Columbia Mining Association is to be
held this afternoon at the Phaii hotel,
when officers for the ensuing year will
be elected and other routine bnsiness
will be transacted. Besides this it is
understood the subjeot of a lead refinery is to be dealt with and it is
not improbable that some definite
plans may be prepared for the going
ahead with the enterprise. It is also
reported that the present situation of
affairs at Rossland is to be fully gone
into, and this with other important
matters to come np will probably
make this the most important meeting of the association has yet held.
E. J. Flatt returned to Nelson yesterday after a three week's trip
through East Kootenay. He reports
business in East Kootenay as being
very lively, with the exception of
Moyie ana Fernie. In the former of
these places the closing down of the
St. Eugene has caused dull times and
at Fernie tho fear that the coal company will put in a new town at the
mines has had an unsettlirg effect.
At Cranbrook, Mr. Flatt said, business was very good also at Marysville
aud Michel. There is an inch of snow
at Cranbrook, and the weather for the
past week bas been bright and clear,
although colder tnan in Nelson.
An alarm of Are yesterday called
out a large crowd very qu.ckly, tbe
occasions of such an alarm ln Nelson
fortunately being extremely rare. The
cause of the fire was au incandescent
light bulb which had been fastened
to the wall above a bed in a house at
the corner of Lako and Josephine
streets, ln some manner the fastening
lip-he and the cord being long allowed
the hot globe to fall on the bed where
it first scorched and then set fire to
tlie bedclothes. The window in the
room was open and the thick smoke
Issuing therefrom aUraoted the attention ot some passersby on Vernon
street who turned in tho alarm. The
fire was extinguished before much
damage was done.
A second fire occurred last  evening,
the location of this  one being  in   the
boarding car of the bridge gang.   The
car was standing on a track   near the
freight sheds, and next to the sleeping
ear uf the men.     Ordinarily the car is
occupied   by   Bridge Contractor M��n-
hart and the cook, but   both had gone
ap town about 8   o'clock, leaving   the
car locked.     About half an hour later
one of tbe men in the  other   car vtent
to the boarding car to fill a lamp, and
win. startled   to   sec   flames  bursting
out of the roof.    He immediately called the rest of ti.e men out,   and while
one sent in an alarm the others   burst
in   the   door.     The fire brigade were
quickly on the scene with   the eheroi
cai   engine,   but tlie   jolting crossing
the railway yurls in  some   way   disconnected the pipes of the engine, and
it was found lo be useless.     A bucket
brigade was quickly formed, however,
and a line made to a   hydrant   but   a
short distance from the   car   and   the
flames quickly got   under control.    A
considerable   quantity   of   provisions
was  destroyed,   amounting   to   about
$5(l,and one end of the car was burned
through.     It   appear*   as if  a   spark
from   the   stove   had   set   fire   to the
woodwork, or else thc   heat from   tbe
pipe where it panned through the roof,
but as the damper   in   the   pipe   wns
turned   off,   the   former theory is the

SWEET CAPORAL CIGARETTES.
The luncheon, tea and sale of work
given by the Ladies' Guild of St.
Saviour's church yesterday in the
preimses formerly occupied by McLean's drug store, was a most successful one. The sale will be continued

arranged and a most appetizing airay
of eatables were set forth and mush
appreciated by the large number of
gentlemen who took advantage of the
opportunity. Misses Gurd and Norma
Hedley had charge of the confectionery table, and Mrs. Procter of the
bran pie. A children's table in charge
of Miss Tyers and Poppy and Greta
Macdonald, Dorothy Cummins, Esther
McFarland, Madge McFarland, Dolly
McLeod and Betty Johnstone did a
rushing business all afternoon, and
the fancy work booth, in charge of a
number of the ladies, was thronged
with buyers. Prizes for the most
popular men were donated by Messrs.
Patenaude Bros., J. Dover and W. F.

BRAIN-FOOD NONSENSE.
Another ridiculous food fad has been
branded by the most competent
authorities. Thoy have dispelled the
silly notion that one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and still another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular part of the body, but it will
sustain every other part. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed hy indigestion cr
dypepsia. You must prepare for tbeir
ppearance or prevent their coming by
aking regular doses of Oreen's August
Flower, the lavontc medicine of the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stim'jlates the liter to
healthy action, purifies the blood, nnd
makes you feel buoyant and vigorous.
