alone can say whether or not they
will be closed next Thursday afternoon. For myself I am through with
the movement. As I have already said
I have accomplished what I undertook
to do and will allow the matter to
rest thoie. I am sorry that you
should have been forced to oppose tho
movement because someone ou an opposition paper started it. It shows a
lack of that bi-aitheily feeling which
should exist among newspaper workers.    Yours truly,       K. C. UEATON.
TRUE BILL
FOR MURDER
Against DesRevleres,���True
Bill Against Bell for
Stealing.
Ne'son's second mid-week half holiday will occur this afternoon. All of
those stores which closed last Thursday afternoon will be closed again today. Last week the butcher shops
did not close down because of the refusal of one to sign the agreement.
Today the West Kootenay Butcher Co.
will go it alone and Manager Traves
announces to his customers that his
stoic wiil close promptly at IS o'clock.
Some opposition to the halt holiday
movement has developed. It is con-
flred, however, to a few of the merchants. These wore called upon Ibis
morning and svere induced to elo^e
their stores this afternoon and to attend a meeting of all the ineicliants
to be held in the hoard of tiade rooms
next Tuesday evening, nt which tbo
matter will be discussed. It will
then be decided whether or not it is
advisable to continue the half holiday. If the majority believe it is not
those who signed the agreement will
bu released from their obligation.
In connection with tlie objeciiO-8
which have arisen to the holiday
movement, tbo following letter was
yesterday banded to the editor of The
Tribune for publication tbis morning:
"Editor Tribune���.Sir: In an article in The Tribune on Monday last,
wiiieh lias not heen replied to by me
before this because of my absence
f.um the eity, you say: 'It now tran-
siires that a great many local ineicliants were Induced to sign the early
C'.osing agreement somewhat under
f ilse pretenses.' As I am the only one
in whose hands the agreement has
been I presume that tln-so words arc
intended to create in the minds of
your readers the impression that I
made false representations to merchants when 1 visited them in an
effort to secure their signatures, I
wmt to say, Mr. Editor, in this con-
njction, that if anyone told you or
your reporter that I misrepresented
the situation to them in any way tbe
person making such a statement deliberately and wilfully lied. Every
merchant who signed the agieeiucnt
riad its contents and knew exactly
what be was signing. If there are
a ry of   them who do uot now wish to

Quebec, May 8.���Rev. Mr. Almond,
late chaplain of the Royal Canadians,
received the sad news yesterday from
Bale des Chaleurs of the drowning of
his two brothers, James MacPhctson
and Robert C. Almond, aged 25 and IS
years respectively. They were out
boating and while rounding a point a
treacherous or unknown undercuneut

no assistance being near, the two
young men unhappily found a watery

BIG COAST MINING  DEAL
A   DEAL   CLOSED     AT    VICTORIA
AMOUNTING  TO  8330, 00���TWO
GROUPS INCLUDED.
A NEW   YORK   SYNDICATE   WILE
TAKE OVER THE PROPERTIES
AND PUT IN MACHINERY.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, May 8.���The biggest mining deal ever put through in this section was consummated this morning
when two groups of claims on Mount
Sycker were sold to a New York syndicate. The importance of the deal
may be gathered fiom the fact that
the purchase price amounted to $330,-
000, oce quarter of whicli is cash.
Tho purchasers were represented by
W. A. Dier, of this city, and E. E.
Smith, of New York, whose daughter
was recently married to E. Dier, son
of W. A. Dier. The property acquired   includes   two   groups, the Copper
Canyon, comprising the Victoria, Su-
ft lide hy the terms of the agreement | sail and Copper Canyon claims.and the
1 it them break it.   It makes so differ-   Ainoka   group, comprising   the   May,
m
euce to me. I would not, however, be
inclined to accept a note or a check
signed by any such individual. The
former might not be good when it fell
due and payment on the latter might
be stopped before one got to the bank
with it. Hut 1 know that there are
those who are now kicking. They
may have good grounds for their objections to the early closing movement. I will not argue the point
with then. Hut they should have
considered these matters before they
signed thc agreement. It is always
well to look before leaping. No one
was forced to sign the agreement; no
one signed it tlnough false representations. All acted of their own
free will. I took hold of the matter
after discussing it with some of Nel
son's most prominent merchants. They
thought it a good thing and so did I.
If the majority of the merchants do
not believe it should be continued let
them hold a meeting and agree among
themselves to discontinue it. I should
not like to believe of the merchants nf
Nelson that they could be foiccd
against their will, by me or any
other individual, into doing something that tbey did not want to do.
If this were so I should feel that I
were a pretender to Ihe throne whicli
is now and has been occupied for so
long by the proprietor of The Tribune, our ex mayor and our present
worthy member of the provincial legislature. I can assure you tbat I have
no such aspirations. I simply undertook to secure a half holiday for the
merchants of Nelson and tbeir employees. My efforts were successful.
The stores were closed last Thursday
afternuon and will be
afternoon.   Tbe merchan
Star and Yankee claims, all of whicli
were formerly owned by P. J. Pearson. The purchasers say that in about
a month they will have machinery on
the ground and will put a big force to
work. They expect belore the close
of thc summer to be shipping ore.
The government has imported a
large consignment of English rhododendrons direct from Kent and is setting them out in tbe parliament
grounds. This is the first attempt to
cultivate '.hese plants in Canada, and
every precaution is being taken to insure good growth. Dig pits are being dug and tilled with loam and
sand. The plants when in perfect
state ieaoh a height of six feet.
Another government caucus was
held this morning.

MacLcan, thc premier said that in
May or June Canada would send a

the request that all self-governing colonies do so with a view to discussing
a re-arrangement in regard to the
judicial committee of the privy council.

Judge and Grand Jury Unite
in Deprecating Present
Court House.
A true bill against James F. McGill
des Revieres for the muider of Harry
Rowand in February was returned at
the assize court yesterday by the
grand jury. A true bill was also returned in the matter of Rex. vs. Bell.
Counsel on the des Revieres case not
being prepaied to proceed at once the
only other criminal case on the docket
was proceeded with.
The case is one of alleged cow stealing and is .brought by Malcolm Mclnnes, of Cranbrook, against John
Hell, from the same district. W. A.
Macdonald, K. O, took the case for
the crown, and J, Harvey, of Fort
Steele, appeared for the defense.
A special jury was sworn in, composed of the following gentlemen:
II. S. Daviee, W. J. Caldwell, Chas.
D. J. Christie, Frank M. O'Brien. R.
J. Steele, Jas. McDonald, W. C. McLean, IS. T. Hrockman, Hugh Mcpherson, Jno. R. Hunter, il. O. Poo'e,
D. J. Robertson, Geo. Nunn and Geo.
W. Steele, foreman.
In opening the case the crown attorney briefly stated the facts as follows: Mclnnes is engaged in the
butcher business in East Kootenay
and had a herd of cattle at large in
the neighborhood of Barnes' ranch,
who happens to be police constable
for tbe district. About the 22nd of
November the winter set in with a
heavy fall of snow, and Mclnnes sent
two Indians, Moses and Andrew, to
collect the herd for the purpose of
stabling them. It appears there were
six head of cattle in all, and when
rounded up they were all put in at
Haines' ranch. During the night the
animals broke loose and when rounded up again one was missing. The
Indians at once Hcoured the country
and eventually traced the footmarks
of a cow, a horse and a dog to the
ranch of the prisoner. Blood was
found in various places in the immediate neighborhood and after further
investigation the hide, hoofs and entrails of an animal were found, one
installment under the ice and another
on Adams' place. In proof o* this
statement thc counsel for the crown
produced witnesses.
Moses and Alexander were the first
witnesses called and they corroborated the statement of counsel. Alexander testified through an interpreter.
At the adjournment of the court the
case was not completed.
Early in the afternoon the grand
jury returned, having completed their
round of thc publio institutions of
the city and presented their findings
to Ills Lordship. The presentment
was as follows:
"May it please Your Lordship: We,
the grand jurors of the Nelson spring
assize, May, 11)01, listened with great
interest and attention to your Lord
ship's reraaiks at the opening of the
assize with reference to the death of
our late lameuted Queen, and beg to
assure you that the sentiments expressed hy you are those of every one
in the community. Indeed, this being
the first grand jury summoned since
the death of Her Gracious Majesty,
Queen Victoria, we deem it fitting to
add our tribute of sorrow to that of
her people everywhere throughout the
empire and, indeed, that of the whole
world. In her death the nation suffered an irretrievable loss, hut there
is some consolation in the fact that
though forever removed from her people, sho has left an heritage that must
still continue to exercise an influence
for good for alt time to come. The
accession to the throne of King Edward VII, gives assurance that the
empire will maintain its splendid administration of justice, thc preservation of the inalienable rights of the
people and the integiity of our public
institutions. We heartily concur in
the opinion of your Lordship that recent events in Soutli Africa have demonstrated the unity of the empire, and
in the magnificent record made by
our  Canadian   soldiers we can surely,
congratulate ouiselves that wo are tl.a
worthy sons of   brave sires.
"Once more it becomes the duty of
a grand jury to draw attention to the
inadequacy of the^.C-ommodation supplied by the [courthouse to meet the
increasing requirements of the people.
In no way does it fulfill the object for
which it is intended. It is lacking in
rooms for juries and libraries, and Is
an endless source of confusion and
vexation to litigants and others who
are required to visit tbe place to
transact legal or other matters. On
account of bad ventilation, it is a
constant menace to the health of all,
and we wonld therefore strongly urge
the necessity of a new courthouse,
which would be in keeping with the
progress made by the city of Nelson.
"We have visited the provincial jail
and find everything there in a moBt
satisfactory condition. The working
of tbe institution is carried out on a
system which is in keeping with the
progressive methods of dealing with
the criminal class. We would, however,recommend a change in the manner of heating the jail. Hitherto
stoves have been used for that purpose, hut with unsatisfactory results.
Hot water heating, we are led to believe, would more fully meet the requirements of the jail in this respect.
We regard it as most unfortunate that
children of tender years aie sometimes committed to the common jail,
where they must associate with hardened criminals, with the result that
in time their reformation becomes
very improbable, if not impossible.
We called at the gcneial hospital and
are pleased to report everything in
the way of accommodation and officials as most  satisfactory,
"In conclusion, we would recommend further restrictions as regards
hotel and liquor licenses. We are of
the opinion that those licenses should
be limited to at least one for every
three bundled population. Indeed,
there seems to he imperative demand
for immediate change in this respect."
The following gentlemen composed
the grand jury: F. Griddle, foreman;
II. B. Bellamy, A. G. Gamble, P.
Irvine, 11. Kydd, II. E. McDonnell, N.
T. McLeod, C. G. Miller, R. Robertson, W. P. Tierney, W. J. Wilson and
Jno. Deane.

WINDING UP CENSUS.
Commissioner Wants parties Overlooked to  Notify Him.
A. B. Buckworth, the census com-
misioner for the Nelson district, was
in the city last evening on business
connected with the completion of the
work of the census, lie expects that
the whole of the work will he completed by the end of this week and
that the revision of the lists will commence on Monday. So far as Nelson
is concerned the work was practically
finished a month ago, but some of thc
outlying districts are so scattered and
inaccessible at this season of the year
as to make the work excessively hard
and protracted. The commissioners
attention was drawn to the communi
cation, which appeared in yesterday's
Tribune from an anxious correspondent at tbe Yellowstone mine. Owing
to the reasons given above the work
has been very much delayed but at
the very time that the census commissioner was being chastised by the Tribune's correspondent for his direlec-
tion of duty A. E. Stapleford, the
enumerator for that district, was at
work at the Yellowstone.
The commissioner has requested The
Miner to state that in those cases
where the residents of any district
have not been enumerated for any
cause whatsoever, if they will drop a
postal card to A. B. Buckworth, Asst.
Census Commissioner, Ymir, B. C.,
they will confer a favor, as in some
instances it may be that people
have been missed, owing to the extreme difficulty in locating them.
Asked in regard to the lost of taking the census in the Nelson riding,
he stated that the probable cost would
be from $2,.100 to $3,000.
PASSED A BYLAW���
An adjourned meeting of thc oity
conncil was heldyesterdav at noon for
purpose of affixing the city seal to bylaw No. (14 legalizing the purchase of
necessary lands and water rights on
Kootenay river, two miles below the
city of Nelson. This bylaw gives the
city council J water rights on the
Kootenay river for water for power
purposes. The sum of SHOO was voted
in the bylaw to defray all necessary
costs of survey, purchase and other
expenses incidental to the transaction
(SPECIAL TO THE MlNKR.)
Montreal, May 8.���Canadian Pacific
stock suffered on the Montreal stock
market today in sympathy with the
panicky conditions in New York and
declined about li Doints to 10? on sales
of BOO shares. Although there was a
decline in price there are a great
many people in Montreal who are
strong believers in thu reports that
there is some big deal on which will
affect the future welfare of the property and which will still further enhance its value. So much so is that
the case that lots of holders of the
stock are waiting for something like
120. The highest heretofore in this
market has been HT.U'. Witli. people
who think in that line denials from
an authoritative source do not count.
Tney tliink it quite possible that the
control could be secured without anyone in the head ollice in this city
knowing anything about it. They
claim the deal might have been going
ou for months during which time
laige blocks of stock might bave been
picked up in Berlin, London and New
York, to say nothing of the local
market.

early sixties, is believed to contain
much of the yellow metal but the
question to be solved is that of getting down to bed rock. Since discovery it is reported to have yielded over

Ottawa, Ont., May 8.���Ottawa was
visited by another big fire early this
morning. It started about 12:30 and
was got pretty well under control at
1:30 a. m. In took place in the lower
town. About a dozen houses on Clarence street west of Barrett's Lane
were burned to the goriind. The lire
extended right through the bloek to
Murray street. The dre started in a
blacksmith shop on Clarence street
and the l.ss will be about 830,000. (in
Clarence street the buildings burned
comprised Damon's carriarge shop, a
boarding liouse, Tague, tobacconist,
and a barber shop. From No. 23 to
30 all buildings were burned to the
ground. From No. 43 to 47, compris.
ing lunch rooms and boarding houses,
the buildings were gutted. On Murray street, Roy & Savignay's hotel, a
brick building, was destroyed, only
the walls remaining standing. There
were also two or three tenement and
boarding houses burned. There was
not a bieath of wind blowing or the
result wuuld have been disastrous.
The liouse devoted its attention to
private bills at today's sitting. The
session was all taken up with the
Manitoba and Canadian Northern Co.
bill. The only speaker was Charlton,
who had not concluded when time was
called. Those who are opposing the
till arc now more hopeful of being
able to talk it over. The arrival of
Charlton will greatly aid them in doing this. Tonight he commenced by
i-aying that he considered it to be his
duty to oppose the legislation on the
grounds that it was in the interest of
Manitoba that it ought not lo carry.
It was an improvident bargain.
Although the vacancy caused by the
death of Mr. Justice King, of the supremo court, is not likely to be filled
for some time, the appointment when
made will no doubt go 0��e Maritime

likely figure in one or tho other of
the moves which will be made in
connection with the vacancy. Sir
Louis Davies' name is also mentioned.

Winnipeg, May 8.���I. C. Hurst and
wife have been committed for trial on
two charges, ono for arson and another for alleged fraudulent concealment of goods on which they attempted to obtain fire insurance. The arson is alleged to have been committed
on April 11 in tbe burning of their
farm house near Emerson, Tbey will
be released on bail and tried at the
next assizes.
W. R. Baker, who has been C IV R.
executive   ollicor   here   for two years,
A bumper liouse was accorded the
children's fancy dress enterainment
at the opera house lust night and the
performance merited the cordial patronage From start to finish the concert was admirable and the ladies
who undertook the arduous task of
rain ing tlie children cannot be too
warmly congratulated on the result of
their efforts.
Probably the best feature was the
Mother Goose party, where twenty-
eight boys and girls participated in
elegantly gotten up Mother Goose costumes and creditably impersonated
Jack Horner, Mother Goose, Little
Red Riding Hood and all the notable
characters so familiar to the infantile mind. The most striking feature of this number was the Mav pole
dance, in which about a dozen girls
moved around the May pole, winding
and unwinding 1 ong, bright colored
ribbons, which when woven around
the pole formed a pattern and produced a very pretty effect.
The Brownies, too, were specially
deserving of mention nnd was climaxed by a small boy in kilts and bonnet, with a gun, rendering a song,
"I Want to Be a Soldier,'' This
brought down the house and was
loudly encored.
The Good Night drill and the
Fairies' Revenge were deserving of
Commendation. In fa.t all the children performed their parts with such
credit to themselves and their instructors that comparisons are invidious. A pleasing feature of the evening was the singing of Lillian and
Hilton Hunter. The former is a little
tot nnly three years of age, but tbeir
duct, "What Will You Take for Me,
Papa?" was undoubtedly the hit
of the performance and was deservedly
encored.
Miss Lola Bennett in her recitation,
"The Spanish Serenade," and Miss
Emerson's instrumental were also en-
thusiasticaly encored.
The entertainment was as good as
tbe crowd was large, and the matinee
on Saturday afternoon should produce
another bumper house.
A RECORD BREAKER-
Another large bat.h of ministers arrived in Nelson by train and boal last
inserted in the bill insuring earlier
construction of the Coast-Kootenay
railway than July 1st, 11)02, the date
named in the bill, but without success.
The government accepted an amendment to the section relating to four
per cent of the gross earnings reverting to the province. This amendment
provides that the company shall pay
the province on subsidy paid at the
rate ot 2 per cent, per annum for five
years from the payment of the said
subsidy and at the rate of 3 per cent,
per annum thereafter, said percentage to be a first charge on ihe earnings of the load,
Ouri jj the loan bill debate Curtis
said that the bill while it might have
been dialled by the hand of the
finance minister or the attorney general, had the voice of Jacob or perhaps the hand of Joseph. McPhillips,white with passion,made practically the same accusation and said he now
understood what Martin meant when
in the course of the Vancouver by-
election campaign he had said of Mc-
Pherson that if he was not elected the
opposition might as well go out of
business. It was evident he had decided to do so, though four or five ie-
fused to follow him in this course.

A NEGLECTED ESTATE.
The Dominion Premier is disposed
to be facetious on occasions. When
Col. Prior the other day complained
that British Columbia was taxed out
0 all proportion to the returns received in the shape of Federal expenditures, Sir Wilfrid treated tbe matter
with some little pleasantries that
were Intended to be a sufficient answer. The fact that we contribute,
man for mini, much in excess of the
other Provinces was taken as evidence that we are in a prosperous
condition, and if the Colonel was to
be taken as a fair example of the average Hritish Columbian it was clear
that our people are r.ot bled white.
A'l of ivhich may be very pleasant to
listen to. but it is not as SBtisfactoiy
as the circumstances wonld seem to
demand.
Tho facts reallj   require   something
more   than   pleasantries,    British Columbia is not an inconsiderable Province of   the Dominion.    Comparing it
with   Nova   Scotia, for   example, we
pay   into    the   public   treasury three
times the amount per bend of   population, and   although   but a handful of
people our   contribution   exceeds   by
nearly Iwo millions  annually tbo sun:
received   by   way   of   expenditure on
Federal account.     What   would   Ontario say if  it were made to pay twenty
or   twenty-five   millions   more   every
year   than    it   received'.'    Wc   do   not
complain    that   we arc entirely overlooked.    There are   evidences that the
politicians   at   Ottawa recognise that
Britisli Columbia is a part of   the Dominion.   They are nol unaware of tbe
fact that it was discovered   about the
same   time   as Manitoba, but they do
not fully realise that   it has been loss
generously treated.    Manitoba is agricultural, and tlie heart of the agricultural East vvent out to it.   There they
raise wheat and cattle, and make butter and cheese,    First the Government
at Ottawa   set to  work   to   make   the
growing   of   wheat   profitable.     The
Province   has   been   gridironed  with
railways, and   the process is still   being   actively ' continued.    This   made
cattlo raising as well   as wheat-growing profitable.    Then   every necessary
resource of   the   Government was employed  to enable   the   people   of   the
Province    to     produce     butter     and
cheese.     Everything   that    could   be
done was done to put   it   on   its   feet
and send it, on lis way rejoicing.   The
result is   that today it   is  ono of   the
most prosperous Provinces of   th. Dominion with a rich and rapidly growing  city   of     fifty   thousand   people.
In   the   meantime British Columbia
has   been   treated   as a   less   favored
daughter   of   the   house.    Our staple
product does not smell   of   the   barnyard, and therefore does not appeal so
sensibly to tbe nose of   Parliament at
Ottawa.    But   although   lacking   the
approved   odour, it must   not   be supposed that it is not vvcrth developing.
There   is   more   wealth in the mountains of   rock in Southern British Columbia alone than   will   be   ploughed
and sowed and reaped  and mowed out
of   the   soil of   Manitoba in the next
five hundred years.   It cannot be realised, however, without   the   facilities
for producing it, any more than could
value be given to   the wheat   and cattle   of   Manitoba    without   affording
them   every   necessary  transpoitation
to market.    Col. Prior   has   told Par
liament   what   our   chief   necessities
are.    Not long ago our local  Premier,
Mr. Dunsmuir, In an   able   and   comprehensive   paper, communicated   the
same   intelligence   with  greater   particularity   and   more    detail   to   the
members of   tbo Federal Government.
Probably thoy would   not plead   it   in
any case, but would  maintain instead
that they   have   already   done a great
deal for British Columbia.    W"e would
not  dispute   this;   but they have not
done enough, nor as ranch  as our circumstances     require.      This   can   he
made thc greatest   and altogether the
Wealthiest province of   tiic Dominion,
nnd to do that it is   surely   worth all
the effort it will cost.   Ministers have
looked   our    way, and   thrown   us   a
bone now   and again ;   but   there has
been no pninett, syilaiuattc attempt
made t-i develop this: portion at u,u
Federal estate, It Is time tha thought
of Parliament was directed to that
end, and when the Dominion Premier
next has his attention called to the
subject wc hope bu will have something more substantial for us than
mere words of gentle dialling or
kintlly^food nature.

(iovernment ownership of railways
is just now a fad with many more or
less excellent persons in Canada. We
bear a word said for it now and again
Thc Federal Government is taking
stops to establish a branch of tho
Royal Mint in Canada. This Is largely duo to pressure from British Coin the House of Commons at Ottawa, I lumbla, Having succeeded In per-
bnt the fad >la not a wildly popular snadlng the Government to establish
one among the class of men who In- the mint, the next effort is to have it
dnlge in our higher politics. The I l'>i-ati-<l somewhere in the Province,
horny handed sons of quarter sections j "'it it will not come West; just now
In Manitoba look to Government own- It looks as if   Ottawa   would   get  it
erablp for salvation on this earth, and
the politicians of that Province are of
the stripe to court popularity at any
cist; therefore it happens that the fad
is much affected there. It is becoming
the vogue at Victoria, too. Somo Condi a.e at the last election experimented with it, but the people maintained
a most disappointing calmness. Under the impression, however, that it
cm be made popular, several members exhibit themselves us converts to
it, and it has been much in evidence
since Ihe Government declared their
railway policy. That policy, in fact,
is supposed Id squint ill the direction
of thc principle, with such definite-
n 'ss thnt more than half of the Opposition have made it an excuse to go
o.'er to the (iovernment side. (There
is to be a reconstruction of the Cabinet soon.)
New Zealand is the example in
illustration. Recently a plea for Oov-
cinment ownership in tlie United
States provoked The New York Post
to remark on the conditions in that
colony, and perhaps an extract might
prove profitable reading for some of
those who would put no limit to paternal government: "The Government
rtilways, for example, aie run 'for
the service of the community, not for
a profit' and wo are asked to appreciate the excellence of tho spirit in
which they an' administered, and of
tin! service, although there are no aii-
brnkes oven upon express trains, nor
any signal-cords running between the
passenger cars and the engineer, and
although rates aie high. Tlie policy
of appointing 'my friend here' to the
public service, whether on a railway
or in a department, is obviously not
consistent with great economy 'nor
with great etlicieocy. No more is tlie
New Zealand theory of railway rates���
that they muy be lowered, but must
never be raised. Where a Ministry is
in such unstable equilibrium as to he
overturned for increasing tlie rate on
sheep sufficiently to cover legitimate
cost of transportation, it is obviously In
no condition to enforce business prin-
cidlcs. The Oovernment can borrow
and tax to cover any deficits. Taxation in New Zealand is largely indirect. The Government raises nearly
live times as much revenue from import dut;es up-in articles of necessity
as it does from its progressive income
and land taxes
Anil all things considered, it is perhaps better to make It an institution
of the capital. Victoria, Vancouver,
Nelson, Pilot Bay. and Hall's Siding
will pocket their disappointment, nnd
do their best to survive it.
The Midway Advance is advertising
for a lo.it parallel of  latitude branded
41).    Its early recovery is   much desired, because of   disputes   over  certain
1 mineral claims   situate in thu locality
' from which it has strayed or has been
1 stolen.

QUESTION   ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world, Ymir mothers and grandmothers never thought of using anything else for Indigestion or llilious-
ness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous

i'EET OUT
at'lirlllllK   UllllilN.
When a person has to keep the feet
out from under the cover during the
coldest nights iu winter Because of
the heat and prickly sensation, it is
time that colfee, which causes the
trouble,  he left off.
There is no end to the nervous conditions that coffee will produce. It
Shows in one way in one person and
in another way in another. In this
case the lady lived in Vermillion, S.
Dakota.
She says, "1 have, had lo lie awake
half the night with my feet and limbs
out of the bed 011 the eohlost night,
and fiel afraid to sleep for fear of
catching cold. I had been troubled
for years with twitching and jerking
of the lower limbs, and for must of
the time I have been unable to go to
church or to lectures because of that
awful feeling that I moat keep on the
movo.
When it was brought to my attention that coffee caused so many nervous diseases, I concluded to drop
coffee and lake Tostura Food Coffee to
sec if ray trouble was caused by coffee
drinking. I onlv drank one cup of
Coffee for breakfast but that wus
enough lo _o the business for mc.
When I quit it my troubles disappear
ed in au almost miraculous way. Now
I have no more jerking and twitching
and can sleep with any amount of
bedding over me and Bleep all night
in sound, peaceful   rest.
Postum Food Colfee is absolutely
worth   its   weight   in   gold   tome.'
