Our -attention hat*, beon called to the Bridge
River News column of October 14th in
which we published statements which, we
snid, had come from Dr. A. S. Brackett,
who, until recently, worked in connection
with the Alhambra Group, I.ridge River.
In order to throw fuilhcr light on the
subject, we would say that thc first and last
paragraphs of said article were the outcome
of a conversation which the editor.- had
with the Dr. at Lillooet. The second paragraph was given in to the office hy a correspondent who maintains that what he communicated to uj was the purport of the talk
he had with the Doctor; buJ evidently there
has been some misunderstanding, fur Dr.
Brackett now writes that while he told
u s that Mr. Rath bun intends to go ahead
next Spring with development work on the
Alhambra group, he did not give any information to any one respecting the Lome
group, for he simply knew nothing more
than the above.
Public Library.
At last a definite move is on foot, and the
inauguration of the proposed free circulating library will be an aCcomj lished
fact. The following citizens are on the
committee:—A. \V. Smith, M. P. P. chairman, Rev. J. II. Wright, Jas. Bell, S.
Gibbs, VV.    M.    Brandt ,.
Tlie committee has arranged to hold a
Grand Entertainment in thc Santini Hall
about the end of this month, the profits of
which will be devoted to meeting freight
charges. The stage management will be
under the supervision of J. If. S. Rowbottom and A. E. Orchard, whose past professional experience will enable them to
stage a thoroughly novel, interesting and
amusing programme.
Roughly the entertainment will consist of
Instrumental solos, banjo and guitar Bolos
and duels, comic and sentimental songs,
character songs, negro comedy sketches,
a screaming, farcical comedy in three acts,
and other highly amusing items, the whole
of which will occupy the evening and will
repay the generous attendance of those who
Contribute to the above laudable enterprise
by their presence. Further particulars of
the entertainment will be  given.

A mineral claim, prior to being
Crown-granted, is held practically on
a yearly lease, an ee-entinl requirement of which is the doing of ftaeess-
ineiit work on Ibe claim annually of
the value of $100, or, in lieu thtreof,
payment of tbat amount to the mining
recorder. Each ne-essment must be
recorded before the expiration of tlie
year to which it belongs, or the claim
is deemed abandoned. Should the
claim meanwhile not have been reio-.-nt-
id by nno! litr free-miner, record of
the assessment work may be made
within 30 days immediately following
the expiry of the year, upon payment
of n fee of *I0.
A survey of ft mineral claim maybe
recorded ae an a .p.suieut at its actual
value lo tlie extent of iflOO. If during
any year work be done to a greater ex
than the required $10., any additional
sums of $100 each—but not less than
$100—may be recorded nntl count,d ns

Clinton Assizes.
At the recent assiz-s held in Clinton
two criminal cases were tried, in each
of which tlie defendants were acquit-
An Indian was arraigned on tin
charge of horse-stealing, but tl.e jur;
after a ten minute period ol deliberation, declared liim innocent.
Tlie second case attracted great attention. Two Chinamen were charged
with murdering a fellow   countryman.
Ti.ey were defended by Mr. Stuari
llendeisoii of Ashcroft, who conducted
ids case in au extremely able manner.
Counsel for lhe crown were Messrs.
A. D. Mclnlyre of Kamloops, Dennis
Murphy of Ashcroft, aud R, L. Reed
of New Westminster,
Tne testimony of the Chinese witnesses was a marvel of contradictions',
nearly every one being shown by the
opposing counsel to have a striking
want of regard for the truth.
Mr, Henderson's address to tbe jury
occupied about forty-live minutes and
Mr. Mclutyru's about twenty. Hit
Lordship pie.-enled his summary of
the case in one hour and tifteen minutes.
Considerable exci'enient was caused
when, just as Mr. Henderson was commencing hiE address to the jury, one
of the prisoners arote and asked to be
allowed to speak to the judge, saying
that he wished to speak tbe truth.
The judge rilled, however, that as the
case had already progressed lo such a
point, he should not be heard, liis
surmised that he wished to clear himself by incriminating his fellow-pris-
on er.
Tiie jury, after tieing out an hour and
a half, returned a verdict of not guilty.
The jury consisted of:—W. Fearn, foreman, W. Cameron, G. Couvreite, P, 11.

(K oblivion and its defeats I speak
to-duy. There is an old monster that
BWallows    down       everything. It
crunches Individuals, fn..iilies, communities, stui es, nations, continents,
hemispheres, worlds. Us diet is made
up of years, of centuries, of ages,
of cycles, of millenniums, of eons,
Thai monster is called by Noah Wob-
ster nml all the other dictionaries
"Oblivion." It is a steep down which
everything rolls. It is a conflagration
In which everything is consumed. It
is a dirge Which all orchestras play
and a period ut which everything
stops. It ie the cemetery f tin; human race. It is tlie domain of foigct-
(ulness. Obllvionl At times it throws
a shadow over ull of us, und 1 would
not pronounce it to-duy If I did not
come armed in the strength of the
eternal Clod on your behalf to attack
it, to rout it, to demolish il.
Wl*- just look at the way the families of the earth disappear. For
awhile they are together, Inseparable
and to each other indispensable, and
then they part, some by marriage,
going to establish their homes, and
some leave this life, and a <-"iitury is
long enough to plant n ' .ly, develop it, prosper it and r_itenitu it. So
the generations v mlsh. Walter
Scott's Old Mortality may go round
with his chisel to recut the failed epitaphs on tombstones, but old oblivion has u quicker chisel with which
ho can cut out a thousand epitaphs
While Old Mortality is cutting ono
epitaph. Whole libraries of biographies devoured of bookworms or unread of the rising generations. All
the signs of tlie stores and warehouses of great firms have changed,
unless the grandsons think thut it is
nn advantage to keep the old sign
up because the name of the ancestor
was more commendatory than the
name of tlie descendant. The city of
Home stands to-duy, but dig down
deep enough, and you come to another Home, buried, and go down
still farther, and you will lino" a
third Home. Jerusalem stands
to.day, but dig down deep enough,
and you will find a Jerusalem underneath and go on and deeper down a
third Jerusalem. Alexandria, Egypt,
on the top of an Alexandria, nml the
second on the top of a third. Muny
of tlie ancient cities are buried thirty
feet deep or fifty feet deep or 100
feet deep. What was the mutter? Any
special calamity? No. Tlie winds and
waves and sands and Hying dust are
all undertakers und grnvediggers,
and if liie world stands long enough
the present Washington and Now
York and London will hnve on top
of them other Washington* uud New
Yorks and Londons, and only after
digging nnd boring and'blasting will
the archaeologists of far distant
centuries come down as far as tho
highest spires nnd domes und turrets
of our present American and European cities.
Call the roll of the armies of Baldwin I. or of Charles Muriel or of
Marlborough or of Mithridates or of
Prince Frederick or of Cortes, and
not one answer will you hear. Stand
them in line and cull the roll of the
1,000,000 men in the army of
Thebes. Not one answer. Stand them
in line, the 1,700.000 infantry nnd
tho 200,000 cavalry of the Assyrian
army under Ninus, und cull the roll.
Not one answer. Oblivion! Are tho

tho Duchess of Richmond at Brussels

All still. Arc the ours that heard the

deaf. Are the eyes that saw tho coronation of (leorge III. all closed?
All closed. Oblivion! A hundred
years from now there will nol be a
being on this earth that knew wo
ever lived.
In some old family record u descendant studying up tlie ancestral
lino may spell out our name and
from the faded ink with great effort
find that some person by our name
was born somewhere in the nineteenth century, but they will know
no more about us limn we know
about the color of a child's eyes
born last night in a village in Patagonia- Toll me something ahout your

And your great-grandmother? Will
you describe lhe style of the hat she
wore, nml how did she and your
great-grandfather get on in each
other's companionship? Was it March
weather or June? Oblivion! That
mountain surge rolls over everything. Even the pyramids are dying.
Not n day passes but there is chiseled off u piece of that granite.
Why, there is only a crust between
us and tho furnaces inside raging to
get out. Oblivion! Thc world itself
will roll into it us easily us a schoolboy's India rubber ball rolls down a
hill, und when our world goes it is
so interlocked by tho law of gravitation with other worlds that they
will go too, and so far from having
our memory perpetuated by a. monument of Aberdeen granite in this
world there is no world in sight of
our strongest telescope that will be
a sure pediment for any slab of commemoration of the fact that we ever
lived or died at all. Our earth is
struck with death. Tho axletree of
tho constellations will break and let
down the populations of other
worlds. Stellar, lunar, solar, mortality. Oblivion! II can swallow
• nil  will swallow whole ualnxius    of
worlds as easily lis a crocodile takes
down a frog.
Vet oblivion does not remove or
Swallow everything that had better
not be removed or swallowed. Thc
old monster is welcome to his meal.
This world Would long ago have been
overcrowded if not for the merciful
removal of nations und generations.
What if nil the books had lived thut
were ever written ami printed und
published? The libraries would by
their immensity have obstructed intelligence and made all research impossible.Tho fatal epidemic oi books
was u merciful epidemic. Many of
the stale and national libraries today are only morgues, in which dead
books are waiting lor some one to
coine and recognize them. What if
all the people Unit hud been born
were slill alive? We would have been
elbowed by our ancestors of leu centuries ago, and people who ought to
have -said their last wind 8,000
yours ago would snarl nt oh. saying.
"What  nre you  doing horo?"   There
Would     have  I ii   no     room  lo  linn
around. Some of ihe post generations of mankind wen- nul worth
remembering. The flrsl usc'ul thing
that many people did was lo die,
their cradle a misfortune and their
grave a boon. This world was hardly a comfortable place lo live in bo-
fore lhe laid.ile of tin- eighteenth
century.   So many  things huvc coine
int_   lhe   world   l I at    were   not    I'll      lu

healthful draft. The history we have
ui lhe world in ages pasl is always
one sided and cannot be depended un.
History is fiction illustrated by a
few straggling facts.
Now, 1 lane told you thai this oblivion of Which I have spoken has

of them. They cannot forget
an earthly kindness dune.
The kindnesses you do tu others will
stand as long in lhe appreciation of
others us the gates of heaven will
stand, as the "house of many mansions-1' will stand, as long us the
throne of God will stand.
Another defeat of oblivion will bo
found in the character of those whom
we rescue, uplift or save. Character
is eternal. Suppose by a right influence we uid in transforming it bad
man into a good man, a dolorous
man into a happy man, a disheartened man iuto a Courageous man,
every stroke of that, work done will
be Immortalized. There may never he
so much as one line in a newspaper
regarding it or no mortal tongue
may ever whisper il into human enr,
but wherever that soul shall go your
work upon it shall go, wherever that
soul rises your work on it will rise,
and so long as that soul will last
your work on it will lust. Do you
suppose there will ever come such un
idiotic lapse in tlie history of that
soul in heaven thut it shall forget
that you invited him lo Christ; Unit
you, by prayer or gospel word, turned him round from the wrong way to
the right way? No such Insanity will
ever smite a heavenly i-iii/.en. It is
not half as well on earth known Ihal
Christopher Wron planned uud built
St. Paul's as it will be known in ull
heaven that you were ihe Instrumentality of building u temple fur lhe
sky. We leach a Sabbath (lass or put
u Christ inn trad in llie hand of n
passerby or testify for Uhrlst in a
prayer meeting or preach a sermon
und go home discouraged, us though
nothing had been accomplished, when
we laid been character building wilh
a material that no frost ur otirth-
CjUuke ur rolling of the cent uries can
damage or bring down.
There is no subliiner art on enrth
than architecture. Willi pencil and
rule and compass the architect sits
down alone and in silence and evolves
from his own brain u cathedral or a
national capitol ur u massive huiiie
before he leaves Ihal table, uud then
he goes out and unrolls his pluns
and culls carpenters and masons und
j artisans of all sorls to execute his
design, and when il is finished he
wm Iks around the vast structure nnd
sees the completion of tin- work with
high satisfaction, and on a stone at
some corner of the building lhe architect's name may be chiseled. But
the storms do their work, and time,
thai takes (lown everything, will yet
tnko down thnt structuro until there
sliall not be one stone hit upon another. But there is a soul in heaven.
i iirougi'. your instrumentality it was
put there Under God's grace you are
the architect of its eternal happiness.
Your name is written, nol on one
corner of its nature, lull inwrought
into its every fiber and energy. Will
lhe storms of winter wash out the
story of what you have wrought
upon thnt spiritual structure? No.
There are no storms in that luud,
and there is no water. Will time
wear out the inscription which shows
your fidelity? No. Time is past, and
it is un everlasting now. Built into
the foundation of thut imperishable
structure, built into its pillars, built
into its capstone is your name, either
the nuir.e you have on earth or the
name by which celestials shall call
you. 1 know llie Bible says in ono
place that God is a jealous God, bul
thul refers to tiie work of those who
worship  some other god.
A irue father is not jealous of liis
child. With what glee you show the
picture your child penciled or a toy
ship your child hewed out or recite
the noble deed your child accomplished,   and   Cud   never   was   jealous
of a Joshua, never was Jealous of a
Paul, never was ,i,.-ulous of u Frances
ililViTe.nl.      never        Was   jealous   of   a
man or woman who tried to heal
wounds und wipe away tears and
lift burdens und save souls, and
wlitle ull is of grace and your self
abnegating utterance will lie, "Nol
unto us, nol unto us, but unto thy
name O Lord, give glory!" you shall
always fee! a heavenly satisfaction in
overy good tiling you did on enrth,
and if Iconoclusm, borne from beneath, should break through the
gates of heaven and efface one record of your earthly fidelity methlnks
Christ would take one of the nails of
his own cross and write somewhere
on lhe crystal or the amethyst or
the jacinth or the chrysoprusus your
name and just under it tho inscription of my text, "llie righteous shall
he held in everlasting remembrance."
There is another and a more
complete defeat for oblivion,
and thnt is in the heart
of God himself. You have
seen a sailor roll up his sleeve and
show you his arm tattooed with the
figure of a favorite ship, perhaps the
lirst one iu which he ever sailed,
You havo seen a soldier roll up his
sleeve und show you his arm tattoo-'
ed with the figure of a fortress where
he was garrisoned or the face of a
dead general under whom he fought.
You have seen many a hand tattooed
Willi the face of a loved one before
ur after marriage. This custom of
tattooing i.s almost ns old us the
world. ll is some colored liquid
punctured into the flesh so indelibly
that nothing can wash it oul. It
may have been there fifty years, but
when the man goes into liis coffin
thut picture will go with him on
hnnd or arm. Now, God says Hint
lie has tattooed us upon his hnnds.
There can be no other meaning of
Isaiah, where G,,.i says, "Behold, I
have graven thee on the palms of my
hands!" It wus as much ns to say:
"I cannot open iny hand to help,
but 1 think of ynu. I cannot spread
abroad my hands to bless, but I
think of you. Wherever 1 go up and
down the heavens: 1 take these two
pictures of you with me. They are
so Inwrought into my being that I
cannot lose them. As long as my
hands last tlie memory of you will
last. Not on the buck of my hands,
ns though to announce you to
others, hut on the palms of my
hnnds for myself to look at and
study and love. Though I hold tho
winds in my list, no cyclone shall
uproot the inscription of your name
and your face, nnd though I hold
tlie ocean in the hollow of my hand
its billows shall not wash out the
record of my remembrance. 'Behold,
I huvo graven thee on the palms of
my hands!' "
What. joy, what honor, can
there be comparable to that
of being remembered by tho
mightiest and most affectionate
being in the universe ?
Think of it, to hold an everlasting
place in the hoart of God ! Tho
heart of God ! The most beautiful
palace in lhe universe. Let lhe nrch-
ungel build a palace as grand us ho
can and then you enter this palace
of nrehitngelie construction and see
how poor a palace it is compared
with thc greater palace that some of
you have already found in the heart
of a loving und pardoning God and
into which all the music nnd al! the
prayers and all the sermonic considerations of this day are Irving to
introduce you through the blood of
the slain Lamb.
oh, where is oblivion now? From
the dark and overshadowing word
that it seemed when 1 began it has
become something which no man or
woman or child who loves ihe Lord
need ever [ear. Oblivion defeated.
Oblivion dead. Oblivion sepulchered.
But I must not he so hard on that
devouring monster, for into Its grave
go ull our sins when the Lord for
Christ's sake bus forgiven them.
Just blow u resurrect *,n trumpet
over tin-in when once oblivion hus
snapped i in>iii down. Not one of
1 Iiciii rises. Blow again.. Not n stir
amid nil the pardoned Iniquities of a
lifetime.     Blow   again. Nol,   une   of
them movos in the deep gra7«
trenches. Hut. tu this powerless resurrection trumpet n voice responds,
half human, half divine, nnd it must
lie part man ami part God, saying,
"Their sins uud their Iniquities will
1 remember no more." Thank God
for this blessed oblivion. So you
see I (lid not Invite you down into a
cellar, but up on u throne; not into
the graveyard to which all materialism is destined, but into a garden all
a-bloom wilh everlasting remembrance. The frown of my first text
has become the kiss of tl:.- second
text. Annihilation has become coronation. The wringing hnnds of a
great agony have become the clapping hands of a great joy. The requiem with which we begun hns become the grand march with which
we close. The tear of sadness that
rolled down our cheek has struck tho
lip on which sils the laughter ol
eternal triumph.
Time! IlnrliiK the War licit*-,-a (ho
Slates When DUclnllne Waa Forgotten and the General* Found It
Wise to Ignore the Fnct.
"Discipline didn't count," said the sergeant, "iu the matter of pranks. There
were not better soldiers in the array than
the boys ot the Eighty-fifth Illinois, and
none yielded more readily to discipline or
ripened more rapidly iu the rough school
of experience. But liie men of tiie Eighty-
fifth were, after Stone Biver, Chickainau-
ga, Kenesaw, Peach Tree Creek, Atlanta
und the march to Ihe sea, aa uiueh given
to pranks as they were in their first
march in Kentucky in the summer of
1802. We arrived at Richmond on tho
long mnrch from the Carolinns early iu
May, 1805, Our brigade was made up of
seasoned soldiers, if there were any in the
army, hut (hey enme north iu tlie belief
Unit General llnlieck or Secretary Stanton had imt a slight on General Sherman,
nnd Ihey were looking for trouble.
"The march from North Carolina nfter
the surrender of Johnston had been a
sort of picnic for tlie hoys, but discipline
was ns strict as it was ia front of Atlanta, and it was needed when we eame to
Richmond, llnlieck, then in command
of the department of the James, directed
that Sherman's nrmy puss in review before him as it marched through Richmond. Bherman forbade the review, nud
llnlieck refused tn permit any of Sherman's men to enter the city. Ex-Confederates nnd citizens came and went nt
will, hut when Sherman's men attempted
to visit the city they were met nt the pontoon bridge by a provost guard nnd turned back.
"Sherman's men resented all this, and
they were furious over the intimation
that they wero kept out of tlie city in the
interests of good order aud because they
could not be trusted. The hoys talked
only among themselves and organized to
carry out a plan to see the city. Ono
day a large crowd of unarmed soldiers
assembled at the south end of the bridgo
nud at a given signal rushed upon the
guards, pushing many of them into the
river nnd overwhelming the others by
sheer weight of numbers. Iu short, Sherman's men, acting without orders nnd
without ollicers, seized the bridgo and
held it while the boys went over and
looked ahout the fallen Confederate capital. So far ns I know, llnlieck made uo
complaint of this irregular proceeding,
and Sherman did not notice it.
"After the grand review ut Washington
the Eighty-fifth Illinois, with the other
regiments of the brigade, went into camp
near tlie Soldiers' home, and tho men
wero permitted to roam nt will over tho
city. Ono morning some of tho hoys discovered a soldier at Fort Slemmer walking up and down in front of an officer's
tent carrying a log on liis shoulder. One
of the boys was sent over to Investigate,
nud when he reported thnt the soldier at
the fort wns carrying the log ns punishment for u very trivial offense tlie men
decided to interfere. They went in force,
but without nrnis, over to tlie fort, took
charge, dismissed tlie log carrier to his
quarters mul jovially informed the officer
in commnnd that the punishment wns
contrary to the regulations nnd Sher-
mnn's men didn't want him to let It occur again.
"At the close of the interview they picked up the log and brought it nt the head
of nn orderly column into our camp. At
the beginning of the war sueh a proceeding would hnve thrown army headquarters into a panic, But then tho war was
over, nnd Sherman's men were in grent
favor, aud the case was uot even reported."
"I remember a ease," snid the major,
"in which soldiers who enmo to frolic remained to work. Oue night our brigade
enmped nt Tullahomn, nud a tiro culled
the men to the crossing of the principal
streets. The boys were at first greatly
amused nt the efforts made hy home talent to put out the lire nnd were free with
the most absurd suggestions. But when
the matter became serious nnd tho few
citizens wero bewildered and helpless the
soldiers fell into ranks, organized quickly
n dozen lire brigades nnd. under the direction of men who had fought big fires nt
home, worked hnlf the night to suve the
property of their enemies. They checked
nnd lifter n time innstered the fire, but
from first to last they bore themselves
like soldiers on n frolic, except thnt they
mnde n business of putting out the fire.
"Thnt snme brigade nfter the terrific
bnttle of Jan. 2, 1808, nt Stone rivor, returned from the last charge against
Breckinridge's corps to their bivouac of
the morning to find Negley's men carrying off tho rails out of which they hnd
built rude shelters tbe night before.
Palmer's men hurriedly stneked nrms and
by common impulse surrounded, at a full
run, the mil experts of the other division.
Both divisions hnd participated in the
charge, nnd hnd marched bnck in the
dusk of evening with the hnttlo spirit on
them, Palmer's men enme on the scene
at the swinging, exultant step of victory,
mnrchhig like regiments on review. But
no sooner did they seo Negley's men
cnrrylng off their rails than they dropped
the soldier nud bore down on tho raiders
like foothnll players in a rush. The
movement wns ho spnntnneous and tho
numbers were so great thnt Negley's men
were overwhelmed, and Palmer's men
carried back the rails frolicking like mad.
"The scene wns ns tumultuous ns it
hundred football struggles compressed into one nnd the uproar was terrific. Negley's men were forming for n counter
rush when Generals Palmer and Negley
came on tho scene, the ono bareheaded
and the other disheveled. Negley complained jocularly (hat it was a pretty
howdy do when lie couldn't confiscate
rails enough to shelter his headquarters
from tho rain without Palmer turning out
from Ci.OOO to 10,000 men to prevent the
confiscation. Palmer replied thnt he had
no mils himself to lend, hut his men
might hnve If they were approached iu
the right wny, but, hy tlie great horn
spoon, nobody could steal the rails which
his men had stolen wilh infinite trouble
two days before, lu Ihis spirit the affair
wns Bettlcil, each general ordering his
men to quarters if they could Uud them."

Brief History of an Attempt to Make
a Pet of llin, la a Colorado Camp.
ConeluHlon of the ' Crank Who
Tried to Do the TraintuK.
"I have often wondered," said a mnn
who is fond of auiinals, "why people
don't give more attention to the badger.
He has lots of character.
"Once when I was younger I was a
bookkeeper for a few months at a grading camp a few miles south of Pueblo,
Colo. One day the contractor nppenrcd
in camp, bringing a budger which ho had
caught on his farm.
" 'You boys cau put in your time training liim,' said he.
"We were pleased enough, but the badger gave us to understand from the first
thnt lie wanted none of us, emphasising
his decision hy n snap at Gleasou's hand,
We managed to get n collar nud chain
at! ached to him, und tumbled him into
a big box.
"There ho was on his guard every
moment and ready to charge nny ono or
anything thnt crowded him In the least.
He snarled nnd roared, nnd when ho
tired of thnt he grunted like a pig. IIo
wns absolutely without fear oi' anything
thnt walked or crawled. He tackled an
immense St. Bernard owned hy one of
our subcontractors. Poor Rex lind never
seen n badger before, nnd he wns grently
astonished. First he smelt of tho badger's hind leg. Then lie snt down nnd
gently waved one paw over the creature's bend. This the badger took as
direct insult, nnd the next minute he was
bunging on to the dog's nose. When
freed, Rex wns not seen for two days.
"Jim Glenson wns the commissary
man. He bad followed enmp life for 20
years, and hnd developed into the worst
crank I ever rnn up against. But for
some reason ho wns quite tickled over
the bndger. Muybe he recognized a kindred spirit.   He said:
" 'I'll have thnt badger tamo in two
dnvs. He's only scared a little; that's
"He told us of a coon he once caught
in Arizonn and tamed so it followvd him
about like a dog. Just before I dropped
off to sleep the first night he informed me
in an offhand way that he'd teach tho
badger to shake hnnds before 10 o'clock
the next day.
"But when morning enme the bndger
was missing. The chain wns in the box
nil right, hut the badger and the collar
were gone.   Gloason felt bad.
" 'It's a confounded shame,' he said.
'I took a liking to that cuss, nnd was
going to give him n nice, ensy time.
Let's look for him. Maybe he is nrouud
enmp yet.'
"He spent two or three hours hunting
for the bndger, and when he finally gave
It up he said mournfully, 'It's a shame;
the poor little thing mny starve.'
"When he turned in lhat night, he left
B piece of fresh beef outside the commissary door 'in hopes,' he suid, 'that tlie
hungry little beast may find it.' The next
morniyg 1 wns awakened by Gleasou's
roice raised in loud nnd picturesque cuss
words. He wns an artist nt the business
ivhon he set out to do u good job.
" 'Look nt that,' he said, and pointed
It n hole in the ground just outsido the
lent. Then he drugged me into tlie tent,
mid showed me nnother hole just under
liis desk.
" 'The nerve of him,' roared Jim, 'after
I put ment out for him nnd done everything for him I could! He's in that hole,
nnd there's n five pound piece of bacon
In there with liim. I come in just in
time, nnd seen him get away wilh it.'
"The cold ingratitude of the badger
leemed to strike Gleason to the heart,
md turn nil liis kindness to gall. I nsked
liim when he was going to give the bad-
[er his first lesson in shaking hands, but
iie didn't seem to see the point. He
hunted up two pails aud spent most ot
the forenoon lugging water from the
flitch nnd pouring it into the holes. Every
time he emptied n pnil he picked up a
club nnd watched the hole, ready for tho
badger when he dashed out. But tho
badger didn't dash, nnd finally Gleason
threw the pnils at the holes in disgust
and passed it up ns n hnd job.
"After dinner I started across the commissary tent to the sleeping tent, nnd my
toot went through up to my knee. Gleu-
bou started toward me, nnd he went
through too. Then we noticed little
round holes in different parts of the dirt
floor. The badger was ot work undermining us.
"Next morning n big piece of beef had
disappeared. We gravely asked Gleason
to please put ont n good lunch for the
poor littlo benst that night. Jim said
nothing nil day. He nppenred to be
thinking. When night enme, he opened
his mouth long enough to tell me thnt
he'd show me lhe badger's Bkin when I
turned out next morning.
"Some time iu the middle of the night
I wns awakened hy nn unearthly racket.
My first thought wus thnt the men wero
banging the cook, n proceeding frequently threatened. I leaped out to save the
cook, hut instead of a hanging bee I
found Jim and the badger enjoying a
lete a tele in the commissary tent. Tho
badger was in his hole, all except his
head. Jim was on his knees, and between the two wns a full side of salt
pork which must have weighed 20
pounds. Both Jim and tbe badger had
firm hold at opposite corners. They wero
putting forth their full strength nnd tnlk-
ing to each other. Their remarks wero
so loud that the whole camp was roused.
How long the show wc i Id have continued I eau't sny if Jim ' adn't forgotten
that he was barefoot a d nimed a tremendous kick straight nt the badger's j
flat head. He remembered just too late,
and tried to kick holh ways at the same
time. The budger snapped nt that bare
foot. Jim yelled nnd jerked. The pork
enmo easy, nnd Jim turued n new kind
of somersnult.
"We were holding ourselves in nil kinds
of positions, too weak to say a singlo
word. Jim saw us for the first time, but
he snid nothing; just hiked buck to hed.
The next morning he moved all the meat
down to tiie cook shack. ,
" '1 know when I'm licked,' he said.
'I'll let the cook hnve part of the fun.' "

The Victim Loses Strengrih in 1 lis
Limbs and Is Usually Unable to
Do Any Work—The Story of a
Former Sufferer, Showing How
This Numbness Can be Overcome.
From   "The  Whig,"   Kingston,   Out.
'I'h* re are few men in tho city of
Kingston better known than Mr. li.
S. Johnson, the genial proprietor of
tbe "Hon Ton" barber parlor, OU
Brock street. For several years he
had been in failing health, being
obliged o give over the entire work
of his busy shop to his assistants.
But this spring his health is so wonderfully improved that his many
friends have been congratulating him,
on his restoration. Tn conversing
with a reporter of The Whig recently, Mr. Johnson had the following
to say concerning his illness and
cure : "For many months I was
practically paralyzed. Numbness took
possession of my limbs, especially of
my hands. From my hips down my
body was without, strength, and despite all that 1 could do, L was unable to prevent my hands and feet
from becoming icy cold. My appetite left me, and soon 1 had to give
up work. My general health was of
course failing, and T lost flesh. As
you know, I am G5 years of age,
and when a man loses strength at
that age, it is a hard thing to build
him up again. I tried several kinds
of medicines, but they all failed to
benefit mc. The doctors whom 1
consulted were also unable to help
ine. 1 wns growing discouraged
when some of my old customers advised me to try Dr. Williams' Fink
I'iils. At First f refused, for I did
not believe any medicine on earth
Could help me, but al last* friendly
persuasion hnd its nffcel, and I
bought a supply of tho pills and began taking them. I soon found that
tbey were benefiting me, and so continued their use until L)r. Williams'
Pink Tills have mnde me a new man.
I feel stronger and better day by
day. I am gaining in weight, and
0UC0 again I am able to attend to
my old customers without the least
trouble. I consider the pills my best
friend and would not be without
Dr. Williams' Pink Fills nre the
friend of the weak and ailing. They
surpass all other medicines in their
tonlo, strengthening qualities and
make weak ami despondent people
bright, active and healthy. These
pills are sold by all dealers in medicine, or can be had by mail, postpaid, at 50 cents a box, or six boxes
[or $2.50, by addressing the Pr. Williams Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont.

ITis Recent Marvellous Escape by the
Aid of Dodd's Kidney i'iils—IJ is
Gratitude to the Help that Saved
Him—Six Boxes Completely Restored Him to Health.
St. Patrice, Lotbfnlere, Que, Sept.
80.—(Special)—A sad story of unjust Imprisonment Is that told by
Phlllipe UoissonncuuK of this place.
His case was worse than that, of the
ordinary prisoner, for his bonds were
those of pain and disease. For 1 1
years they held him, a hopeless victim, chained, tortured, a slave to
Kidney Disease.
Who is there in the world that
thinks mau wus intended to suffer,
that, he merits his fate, that he deserves the afflictions disease put on
him ? Surely, no one thinks that.
Wu were put here to be happy, to be
healthy and free from pain. Nobody
will say thnt Phillippe Bolssonneault
of St. Patrice deserved his long punishment, and nobody but will rejoice
to learn that through the aid of a
wonderful medicine—Dodd's Kidney
Fills—he has escaped.
Dodd's Kidney I'iils, the remedy
that proved such a boon, have made
a reputation all over the world in
curing of diseases of and arising*
from the Kidneys. Dright's Disease,
Diabetes, Rhounmi ism. Lumbago,
Backache, Bladder nml Urinary
Troubles, Women's Disorders, Dropsy, Nervousness and Plood Impurities all come within the scope of
Dodd's Kidney Fills, and Dodd's Kidney Pills have testimonials tor the
cure of all of them. Phillippe Bois-
sonneault's case was ihe common
form  of Kidney  Dis* use.
"For eleven years 1 havo suffered
untold agony with Backache which
crippled me as though I were barred
and shackled. I dwindled iu weight
to a mere shadow. I have taken all
sort s of remedies, nothing doing me
any good. I read In Dodd's Almanac what was recommended for the
Kidneys. I decided to try them and
sent for six boxes, though wit limit
confidence, but today I am completely cured and thank Dodd's Kidney
Fills alone for it."
Careful observations have been
made in order to find out which colors f (>r u n if onus presen t, the best
marks for the enemy's shot, and it
has been found that the most fatal
color is rod, rifle green coming next,
brown third, while Austrian bluish-
grey  is  the least fatal.

The Ar! of lo ii,,.
The poiiuliir idea that the act of dying
Is n painful process often causes u fear
of death. Hut death from even the
must painful mortal diseases Is usually
preei ili'i] by n period of cessation from
suCei'ing and partial or complete insen-
sihilily resemliling falling asleep or the
pleasant gradual unconsciousness caused by un anaesthetic.
The common phrase "death agony" is
not warranted b.v what occurs in natural death, which Is a complete relief
from nil pain. When death Is owing to
heart failure or syncope, It Is sudden
and painless—perhaps pleasant. Death
by hanging, there is reason to believe,
is attended by a voluptuous spasm.
Death by decapitation or electricity is
only a momentary shock, hardly felt.
Heath by poisoning varies in painful-
ness according to the poison employed.
Opium and other narcotics probably
give a painless, perhaps a pleasant,
dreamful death. Hemlock, ns we know
from the account of the death of So-
crates, causes gradual Insensibility
from below upward. On the oilier
hand, arsenic, strychnine, carbolic and
mineral acids, corrosive sublimate, tartar emetic and other metallic poisons
inflict slow and torturing death, i'rus-
sie acid and cyanide of potassium causa
quick  and  painful  death.

The young man was from town and
was spending a Sunday In the suburbs.
He knew far more about horses and
carriages than tlie local livery salesman, aud so his interview with the latter when ho sought to hire a "rig" for
the afternoon was tinged with a gentle
air of patronage ou bis part. "Oh, have
you a trap you can let me have?"
"Yes; certainly."
"One that will bold two?"
"Yes. or 20," from the obliging countryman.
"Oil. really! Have you a stylish road
"Perhaps you have a spider or a
Brewster buggy, or on second thought
1 might prefer a rubber tired hansom.
You can accommodate me?"
"Yes; all kinds cheerfully furnished."
"Can you givo me a lash whip?"
"Yes; with a fancy tassel."
"Oh, well, what kind of a horse can
you turn out—a. short tailed one?"
"I think so," came gently from the
wearied proprietor; then In stentorian
tones to his mau: "Jake, can you give
this gentleman a short tailed horse? If
not, cut one at once."
The Unman Ear.
The human ear is an organ the true
Inwardness of which the physicians
have never been aide to get at. They
can examine the interior of tbe eye
With ease by throwing Into its dark
chamber a ray of light reflected from
a little mirror, and they found It possible even to see the gray matter of the
brain by looking through the little
canal by which the optle nerve enters.
The cavity behind the nose they inspect with the aid of u light placed far
back iu tlie mouth.
They have no difficulty in seeing into
the stomach by an electric apparatus;
the Intestines likewise are readily
enough investigated, aud the bladder
ulso. [tut the car ns lo its Internal
arrangements is unapproachable, it is
impossible to dissect it satisfactorily
nfter death, for the feason that the
parts collapse at once when the vital
spark leaves the body.

Tbese are the lilies of lhc three (jren! premium pictures which  wc- see announced  in
the   Family  Herald anil  Weekly Star for
their readers  this season.    The   pictures o!
llie Kinj.' and Queen  are acknowledged by
those ulm  have seen them to be  lhc most
delightful ever before  the public.    ISniharq
from photos taken since the accession lo lhe
Throne, and are therefore as  our King and
Queen   are today,   and   therefore   have   an
historical  value   haul    lo  compute.    Each
picture is iS x 24   inches,   ready iii   framing, and   bearing the   King's and   Queen's
autographs.    The lliird   picture   is one   of
which all our readers have heard.    It is the
rcnouncd Gainsborough picture,  lhe Duchess of   Devonshire,   and   today   the   most
talked of picture  in tiie   world.    This   famous painting v*as stolen   25  years ago by
clever thieves,  broughl to America and hidden all that time, nnd only  lately   given  up
on  payment 01 twenty-fire thousand  dollars
reward.    It is now owned   by Mr.   J. i'ier-
pont MorgaD, who purchased il for $75,000.
The Family Herald's copy i* 22 x 2.3, an exact reproduction of lhe famous  original, in
ten beautiful, rich colours.    Copies like lhe
Family   I braid's sell   today   in   Ihe  larger
cities at twelve dollars each.    Wilh theim-
provements in liie Family Herald and these
three valuable  pictures,   lhe  publishers of
that grenl   paper   wili surely   do a   larger
business than   ever ihis  season,   and they
deserve it, fur they certainly give a wonderful doilar's worth.
