Fernie, B.C., Nov. 19.���Several hundred men left here by tbe mine train

apply for work and sign on.
The mines will be opened on Monday, but very few men can be employed untll considerable cleaning up
Is done and things put Into shape after the long close down. The coke
ovens bere have been prepared for
lighting and will be sufficiently heated by the time the first stack comes
dowq from the mines. The business
condition has already begun to show
a marked improvement, and everything points to a prosperous winter.

reduced, but there are still about 25
men retained and these will probably be discharged within the next

Ottawa, Nov. 18.���Mr. William McNeill, vice-president of the V., W. &
Y. railway, had an interview today
with Uon. It. L. Borden and Hon.
Frank Cochrane. He was accompanied
by Mr. H. H. Stevens. M.P., and applied for a subsidy for tbe Second
Narrows bridge.
It developed In tbe discussion that
lt was very unlikely that any new
subsidies would be provided for at
the present session. On this account
Mr. McNeill's request on beha'f of the
Burrard Bridge & Tunnel company for
an Increased bridge subsidy was unfavorably received.
Mr. McNeill tben approached the
ministers wltb the request for a re-
vote of the old appropriation provided (or In the original V., W. & Y.
application, which has lapsed, namely,
$200,000 for the bridge and $6400 per
mile for the railway for the first hundred miles north from Vancouver.
This proposal was favorably received and Mr. McNeill was practically ' assured of this re-vote this session, and a favorable consideration
for an additional subsidy next session.
Mr. Cochrane promised Messrs.
Stevens and McNeill that he would
visit Vancouver next summer.
Mr. McNeill leaves for Montreal tomorrow.
It la understood that tbe government has decided to appoint a royal
commission to enquire into the failure
of the Farmers' bank.

Peking, Nov. HL���Premier Yuan
Sbl Kai believes China cannot establish a republic with sufficient dispatch
to prevent foreign interference. Therefore, he Is endeavoring to re-establish tbe monarchy. This is his present attitude, as expressed and implied
to member! of the National Assembly,
foreign ministers and others whom he
had seen.
Tbe premier believes, or pretends
to believe, tbat the provinces of Chi
Ll and Ho Nan are safe, although lt
Is well known that only force retains
them for the government. Hs says
the masses In most of the provinces
are rebellious, but that the provinces
seceded without giving tbe matter
much thought, and very little pressur-
would bring them back to the fold,
particularly If Wu Chang Is recaptured. (
Some members of the legations
think Yuan Shi Kai has the capture
of Wu Chang in view, and that the re
newed fighting around Hankow yesterday and today is preliminary to
an attack upon Hanyang. Additional
troops are being sent south, but the
explanation given by tbe premier is
that they are Intended to relnforco
loyal troops in Honan. Yuan declared
today that the fighting at Hankow ls
the result of a rebel attack.
If the Imperial troops aro taking
tlie offensive by order of Yuan Shi
Kai, tbe premier is deceiving tha
national assembly, to which virtually
he is responsible.
It is reported that the premier has
persuaded the assembly that lt must
permit the foreign loan, to which It
was opposed.
The government intends to pay to
members of the assembly a half season advance salary, probably for the
purpose of Inducing those members
who bave left  Peking to return.
Yuan Shi Kai ls supporting the
society promoted by Wang Chao Ming,
whe    wa*    recently    released    lrom   _
l palace   with   a   botuh.     Tlie  society's!

quickly by sending emissaries to the
province to point out tiie dangers ol
lorelrn   interference.
There is a plan also to submit the
question of a constitutional monarchy
for a republic to a referendum, all
the provinces agreeing to abide by
the result.
Many provinces report marauding
by robber bands and there are per
sistent reports that several foieign^rs
have b^en killed in Shen Si.
Several edicts were issued dealing
with tbe members of the new cabinet
One resignation was accepted while
other members were denied permission to resign owing to the country's

Running Death Takes Toll.
About 9 o'clock, on Saturday night,
a man named Richard Lewis, a
rancher, living at tbe Devon farm, on
the North Arm road, waa struck by
an interurban car at Royal Oak, and
so badly Injured that ha died in the
Royal Columbian hospital shortly
after being admitted. When picked up.
lt was found that both lags had beeu
broken. The man bad aleo sustained
lntei nai injuries. He was brought to
New Westminster in the car. Here
the ambulance was ln waiting to
convey bim to the hospital.
Mr. William Elson, local manager
for the company, was early on the
scene- of tbe accident, and lost no
time in locating the relatives of
Richard Lewis.
Some witnesses of the occurrence
say that the deceased appears to have
slipped between the car and the platform at the siding. He was a married man with a family. Most of hia
relatives reside in tbe state of Washington.   An inquest will be held.
The early fall of thia year has been
remarkable for tbe number of fatalities which have occurred on the B.

���kin Game. Now a Century Old, Was
Invention of a Doctor.
A phrase that has passed from the
ai.iirs of the day to thc dictionaries is
the exgresslon "shell game,'' and if
the centenaries of all notable events
were duly celebrated. It would be
about tbe time now to commemorate
the hundredth anniversary of the dis-
coverv of one of thp most remarkable
swindling devices in history. The inventor of the shell game, or "thimbles" as it was first called, was a Dr.
Bennett, a Southerner, who plied his
trade on th steamboats In the Mississippi. He made a fortune with his
paper pill and his three thimbles and
was one of the most notable gamblers
of which we have any record. It is
only a few days ago that Dr. Bennett's
career was recalled by the Issuing to
one of his grandsons of a patent device at Washington, and the newspapers were nil of the opinion that
the man who could prove he was the
grandson of old Dr. Bennett could
raise a good round T.m of money on
anv invention without the merits of
the device being too closely examined.
Genial   Dr.  Bennett.
Dr. Btnnett was a man of education
nn I  culture,   but  evil  companionship
removed him from    the    circles    be
might   otherwise have  adorned,    and
he became a member of the floating
1 ovulation of the Mississippi.   In   the
early part, of the nineteenth century,
when Bennett flourished the river was
tbe great highway of traffic, and usually   the   passengers   were   well   supplied with money, since most of them
were on their way to transact some
nnre or less important business    or
wore  returning  home   with  thc  proceeds of some deal in tlieir possession
Dr   Bennett's  method   was  to  Introduce himBclf to the notice of the passengers   by   giving   nn   exhibition   of
simple card tricks In the social hall,
aa It wns then called, making a few
small bets from time to time on his
favorite game of calculation, In which
he used no unfair advantage over the
other playetB.   After this preliminary,
a  confederate  or    some    passenger
who had heard of his skill with the
thimbles  would ask  him  to  give  a
demonstration.   Invariably the gonial
but modest doctor would protest that
it was an old    trick that   everyone
knew, and was hardly worth exhibiting anyway.
The Shell Game.
When tho objections were
overcome, he would seek to excuse
despatched to the ladles' cabin, and
thimbles; but somebody would be
despatched to th ladles' cabin, and
would shortly return with the implements. Then the doctor would roll a
little paper pellet, with great reluctance, and In a half-hearted manner
would proceed to roll It about thc table, covering It first with one thimble then with 'another. Abruptly he
. would stop, and 'raising both hahdB
above his head; would Invite someone
to guess under which thimble the pel
let would be found. Trifling bets'
might be made with varying success,'
the odda being somewhat ia tha doc- '���

ways under one of the shells. The Paper box making, one of the new
point of the serious game later on but very Important industries of this
was that the pea was under none of | country,  has  made  its  greatest   pro
the shells. All the time the passen
gers were Ruessing and Vietting a
dime or a dollar, the doctor's keen
eye would be searching the crowd for
his ultimate victim, and since he wan
a capital judge of human nature, he
rarely failed to select his predestined
A Fool and His Money.
Among the thousands who saw Dr.
Bennett operate at different times
was at least one writer wbo has left
a good description of his methodB.
The victim on this occasion was a
young man who was on his way to
the West with a large stock of groceries and some cash, and who became keenly interested in the game.
Time after time he spotted the right
thimble, a! .though the doctor tried to
"give him the wink." Tho doctor good
naturedly offered to make bets with
any spectator except this young man,
gKss during tiie last half century, an',
particularly within the last twenty
years after modern machinery has
been introduced. The business has
assumed wonderful proportions in
New York city, where the capital Investment exceeds $5,000,000.
One hundred years ago there was
no such tiling as a paper box. Tbe
container of those days consisted of
paper wrapped around the article to
be carried. In time some progressive person conceived the idea of
cutting part way through the paper in
order to make it fold more readily.
With this four-sided wrapper it became the custom to tuck the loose
ends In to prevent the contents from
slipping out.
From this was evolved the idea of
scoring the paper so both the sides
and ends folded up and then gluing
the ends together.   That was the way
anv spectator except, im�� j��""5 **���****���   *������*- *-~��� ******���*���������       -=r       ���
whose eves   he said, were too sharp  the flrst paper boxes were m&Se, and

for him.'  This whetted tbe avaricious
passenger's desire to get some of the
celebrated  gambler's  money,  and  he
insisted   on   betting.     Finally,   after
stipulating that    the    young    grocer
should give hlm odds of two to one.
Dr, Bennett let himself be drawn into
the game.    He lost two or three $10
bills, and then wanted to stop.   The
bettor would not hear of It, and finally,  by  subtle  appeals  to  his  vanity,
lir   Bennett induced him to bet $500.
Needless to say, the doctor had the
extreme good luck to win on this occasion, and the other left the party.
The Gambler's Lure.
Of three-card monto and the shell
game, and probably of all the other
favorite swindling devices, It can   ie
satd that the object of the gambler
ls to give his victim the Idea that he
sees more of the game than anyone
else.   Dr. Bennett, for instance, used
to manipulate a tiny piece of paper,
which would be permitted to protrude
from under tbe   shell.     The   bettor
would suppose that this was the pellet which had become unrolled, and
he would, therefore, bet on the thimble that covered it.    In    three-card
monte, where the   object   is to pick
the black    ace    out of three  cards
turned face down on the table, the
dealer appears to be slyly marking
one corner,   or by   manipulating   a
speck of soot.   The   bettor supposes
this to be the card he wants, and Invariably chooses this card on which
to lose his bank roll.
It. was years before any marked improvement was made. In those days a
knife, a pair of shears, a kettle of
paste and a straight edge, with a Supply of boxboard. were sufficient to
start a man in business.

Dickens at Work.
Charles Dickens used to work
steadily in the morning from 9 o'clock
to 1, and in those hours none dared
disturb him. The croquet lawn
where his sons used to play was overlooked by his study windows, and
could not be used by them while the
author was at work. When they desired to reach their cricketing ground
they had to make a detour, In order
not to attract his attention. As they
grew older there was more compan-
shlp between his sons and the author,
and Mr. Dickens speaks of rowing his
father often from Rochester to Maidstone, on the Thames, lie believes

The Original of Micawber.
Mr. Dickens says that his sister
and her husband were Mrs. Joe Gar-

was Mrs. Nlckleby. No one was safe

But even when these instances are
barred, as the railways so zealously
insist on doing, there remains a very
large numher of lives for which the
companies may be held responsible.
The lever crossing menace is the direct cause of hundreds of fatalities
each year, and public opinion ls coming more and more to lay this heavy
responsibility at the door of those
railways which persistently oppose
the abolition of these death traps.

A Memory of Thackeray.
The children dined in the middle of
the  day,  while  their father had  his
dinner at  night.    He  used   to come
into the dining room while Ae younger members of the  family   were   at
their meal, and stand   at   the   sideboard while he made a lunch.   We do
not get the Impression of great geniality on his part, however, but catch
the impression of a man immersed in
work who had little time, even if he
bad tho inclination, to make himself
the idol of liis household.    A happier
reminiscence is given   of Thackeray.
Sydney and Alfred Dickens   went   to
school at, Boulogne, and in a chateau
nearby   Thackeray   dwelt,   his   wife's
reason wholly gone.   He seemed to be
fond  of all  the boys in  the   school,
would    frequently    take    walks   with
them,  buy    them  candies and sometimes give them a hint with their lessens.     Alfred Dickens is not one of
those who consider Thackeray a coldblooded   cynic.    "His   heart  was   as
large as his body," he Insists.    It is
fair to Dickens to bear ln mind that
nearly all his work was done under
pressure.    If it was easy for him to
write, his powers were taxed to the
utmost,   for  practically  all  his  work
appeared  first  in serial form, and it
is doubtful if ever one of his novels

Alfred Tennyson Dickens, who left

Smorltork's Original.
Alfred Teunyson Dickens was

sreat friends of Charles Dickens.
D'Orsa* Was the last of the dandles

original tit Count Smorltork, of Pickwick. Dickens wrote of him as one
"whose name is synonymous with elegant and graceful accomplishments,
and who by those who knew him well
is alTeotionately remembered and regretted as a man whose great abilities
might have raised him to any distinction, and whose gentle heart even
a world of fashion left unspoiled."

at tbe annual meeting of the B. C.

Thc meeting decided that1 the placing

mittee be apvointed to Investigate the

of tbe women. Being immune from
molestation they 'undertook to deliver messages and documents and
traveled to and fro on missions of
great secrecy and Importance.
It was stated that during the Revolution some of the ladles dispensed
with servants and did the house
work themselves in order to parry
spies. When their party triumphed
many women discarded their veils
and took part with uncovered faces in
the street demonstrations of the men
to celebrate their new liberties.
One woman headed a vast crowd at
Stamboul and declared ln favor of
the new regime, calling upon her sisters to give it their utmost support,
while among the most Indefatigable
members of the Young Turk Party at
Salonica was a lady graduate from
the American college at Scutari. Women's clubs were also started, but
were also started, but were afterward suppressed.
After bavlng availed themselves of
the help of the women, says the
queen, the victors ungratefully refused to assist their former companions ln their own struggles for a
wider life, and have been endeavoring to push them back into the seclusion of tbe harem. It bas been found
impossible to do this altogether.
Turkish ladles are often well educated, though lt is only within the
last fifty years that lt has become
customary for them to read and write.
Their lives of seclusion encourage
study, and they pass tbe long winter
evening In devouring any literature
that comes their way, for many are
excellent linguists. For many years
the education of the upper calsses has
been conducted on modern lines,
which has had the effect of Increasing
their discontent, and tbey are intensely envious of their Christian and Jewish sisters.
The  Enlightened Turk.
Many of the leading Turks, especially tliose belonging to the official
classes, are broad-mlnde 1, highly-cultured gentlemen; they are brought
Into touch wltb foreign ladles whom
they are anxious for their women-
kind to resemble; they therefore offer but little opposition to the movement for women'! higher education
and greater liberty which ls now go- j
ing on in the country. *
Besides   having   well-trained    English or French governesses at home, ,
Turkish  ladles aie   now   allowed   to'
take    advantage     of    colleges     and ,
schools which have  been  opened for j
girls of other races and creeds, while I
a bursary Is p^out to be started   to
pay for the education   of a Turkish
woman,  who  wlll   undertake to  give
five  years'   teaching  to  others   after
she has completed her own course.
A paper with a woman editor ancl
with   only   women   contributors   was I
started a f*w years ago.   It dealt with I
domestic concerns, and   informed   Its
readers that "any contributions in accordance  with   Mussulman   faith  and i
with Ottoman  morals  will  be   grate-'
fully received."   It must be confessed
that the contributor? supplied but little information of any value-;  still, it,
was a beginning,  and  as  such   must
not be despised.
Woman's  Legal   Position.
It Is not generally known that the
Turkish woman Ib in a better legal
position than her sisters in any country in Europe. She Is economically
Independent at her husband, and the
law oblige* him to endow her at marriage with a separate estate over
which he has no control. She has the
disposal of any money or. possessions
that may have been hers before her
marriag��, and as Turkey's daugh ers
Inherits from parents equally with
sons, this ls often considerable.
Sbe can dispose of her possessions
as she pleases. She can sue her husband in the courts and be sued by
him, she is allowed a sum for housekeeping expenses and no one has a
right to enquire how lt is spent,
while her husband is obliged to maintain her and her servants according
to his means. The case recently
brought before an English magistrate
of a man who had given his wife Hd.
a day for herself and two children for
nine years would be impossible ln
In fact, the rights and pretensions
of the Turkish woman are so powerful that though men are allowed four
wives by law they rarely are found
with more than one. chief among the
reasons given being tbat they do not
care to put themselves in the power
of more than one woman.
It was not be supposed, however,
that Turkish women do not suffer under many and great disabilities. It
lakes the sworn evidence of two women to balance that of one man, and
whereas men are permitted to marry
those of another faith the women are

They complained that the leaders of
the women's movement were being

to do what he could to improve the
condition of the women of the empire.
The ladies next called upon tbe
Grand Vizier Hakkl Pasha, who ls
the husband of an Austrian lady, and
is known to have liberal views on
the subject. He sent out word that
he was engaged, but the ladles waited
patiently till they were admitted. Hakkl Pasha, however, would not commit

chemically the most active.   It occurred to him that if he lined his helmet
with red t.i cut off these rays, just as
u photographer uses a red light while
he  is developing, he  might  prevent;

Restored to Natural Color
My hair was as white as snow when I commenced using
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy. One bottle re-
Stored my hair to its natural dark brown color. As I am now
70 years old, I consider the result most remarkable. It is an
agreeable and refreshing hair dressing, keeping the hair soft
and glossy, without being in the least greasy or sticky.

Napoleon loved snuff; not only on tba
battlefield, but at bome In tba councll, he had recourse to tba dust, especially wben hls acbemee were" unfavorably received and he wished to
bide bis uneasiness or Impatience. Unable to sit still lu bis elbow chair, be
would try In n thousand wsyu to divert
attention from bliuaelf, snd among
otli.T devices, as soon as be saw a
member's eye fixed ou blm would
bold out his nrm and shake his thumb
ond forefinger, to signify that he wished for a ptneb of snuff. Not less than
four, and even six, snuffboxes disappeared In this manner during a single sitting, and lt was not UU bo had
left the council chamber that be became aware of tbe larceny. So confirmed was this bablt tbat some of tbe
councilors, whose snuffboxes were
heirlooms or presents from foreign
princes, bit upon the expedient of car-;

boxes for tbe emperor to pocket Tbe
snuffboxes, however, always return-,!

Food  and  Strength.
Remember that the food you Uke
one dav supphes the strength you put
forth the next. It is tben a mistake
to take a heavy meal on the day ol
heavy work. The tims to take it is
the day before. Wise stablemen know
this, and when a horse has a long
day's drive before him they give him
only what is called a "check feed.-'
a very light meal, to be followed at
night with a heavy one. So there are
two good reasons for a man's not eat
ing much on the day of stress. It
adds nothing to his strength on that
day, and the process of digestion calls
the blood to work at the stomach
when every ounce of it is needed at
the brain.
Antiquity of Stockings.
Stockings  were known    among the
Romans more   thHn 1,800 years ago,
as  is  proved  by   paintings  found  in
ruins     '    "" Tl ""
of Pompeii. They were
considered moTe ornamental than
useful. In the colder climate of
northern Europe they became a
necessity, and the manufacture ol
them became a recognized employ-
ment in the twelfth century, when
they were fashioned chiefly of cloth.
ln the reign of Edward II. they assumed a resemblance to those now
worn. At the courts of Spain and
Italy they were fashioned of si.k and
were made enormously large.

Considerable interest was taken ln
the provincial government tax sale,
wliich took place in tlie government
buildings. There was discernible a
decided movement to acquire properties on the old Douglas townsite. The
march of settlement and development
has left tbis once well known districi
very little in the limelight of recent
years. It is a place with a past, and
was prominent at the t'me of the gold
rush to Cariboo, in 1SG9.
At that time the population o.f
Douglas was about 500. The town
boasted a church and was the seat of
the magistracy. Access to Ddugias
was by means of the stern wheelers
wliich still ply on southern waters
and which then navigated the Frase
as far up as Harrison river, up tie
river to Harrison lake and across th-
lake to Douglas, a distance of about
f>0 miles. The advent of tlu> sappers
and miners in 1869 lei to the bulldln4
cf a wagon roal, that m:id-> approach
to the gold fields more easy. The
Mlory of Douglas passed away with
the building of the Yale road in 1864.
