direct attention of the citizens of Lillooet to the matter of the cemetery.
Major Burnet in a letter publiihed in

government and suiveyed; nil I ten that
remains is to fence it in. It is mom
certainly a disgrace aud a crying shame
for any civilised community to have
such a burial ground. Purely we are
not content to take a back seat to Chinese and Siwaehes in their respect we
would suggest that a meeting of tin1
citizens he called and the thing talked
the necessary steps could he taken towards fencing.

While we hear so much about the
prospects and brilliant future of Bridge
River district in which we all have the
greatest confidence, do we ever pause to
think what the future of Lillooet is to
be. At the presentetage of development
it seems that Lillooet is to be merely a
distributing centre for goods passing into
Bridge River, which menus that the
town will never be much larger than at
present. To make a town here of respectable size, we must have
miners working close at hand. There
will more than likely be a road into
Bridge River, from Vancouver up
through the Pemberton Meadows tapping a very rich agricultural section.
If that ever comes to pass we will be
stranded here will absolutely no excuse
lor our existence. Bat if good paying
minen could be opened up near at hand,
as close aa the Ample mine or clocer, on
different sides we would no longer be dependant on the success of Bridge Ri ver.

Georire Johnston, 1) .minion statisti-
iiun at Ottawa, lias prepare'! a State-
tnent giving the statistics of crime in
Canada (or the period 1887-99. The
total number of convictions for the
thirteen sears was 484,268, or an average ol 87,250. Of this number 60,981
were for indictable offences, tlie charges
numbering 88,523, so that convictions
formed 68.9 per cent, of tlie charges.
Compared with their numbers, the agricultural class, the industrial claBS (except in offences against property with
violence) and the professional claes contribute a very small percentage of criminals. The commercial class commit
more than their proportionate numbers
in tlie way of offences against the
person, forgery and offences against the
currency, while labourers contribute
more than their share to eve, y class of
crime. About 60 per cent, of the convicted were born in Canada. Those unable lo read and write formed about
14.4 per cent, of thc convicted. Those
possessed witli an elementary education
about 75.6 per cent., while those having
a superior education formed only somewhat over 1 per cent, of the convicted.
Cities and towns furnished 76 per cent,
of the criminal class of Canada.

Reports received at Pekin from Singan-
fu all agree that the famine in the
provinces of Shansi and Shensi is one of
the worst in the history of China. All
infsrmation ou the subject ie necessarily
from Chinese sources and is fragmentary, but the stories aie all to the same
effect, picturing a condition of affairs
that is calculated to arouse the sympathy of the woild for the striken people.
It is estimated that I vo-thinls of the
people are without sufficient food or the
means of obtaining it. The weathei is
bitterly cold and this adds to the misery
of starvation. There is little fuel in
either province, and the people are tearing out the woodwork uf their houses to
build tires to keep themselves warm.
Oxen, horses, dogs and other animals
used by the farmer! to aid them in their
work in ordinary times have practically
all been sacrificed to satisfy hunger.
For three years the crops have been
failures in both provinces. There was
more or less famine in previous seasons,
mid the people were in poverty when
the winter began. Their condition has
since been growing steadily worse. Letters state that cannibalism is practised
now to a considerable extent.
Gamboling- In "Fylers."
A mining investment is do more
a gamble than in any other investment,
excepting when the inveater is a gambler, who attempts to get something for
nothing, There is a vast amount of
un nine I gold in the earth, but there is
even a iiieater amount ol "fools" gold.
Mining should not be blamed, as it
ii-unlly is, for the lack of foresight and
ordinary business sense, which are no
Vss fata| to mining than to any other
business. It is not fair to charge up
ugainst legiti mate mining the losses
that have undoubtedly been suffered by
investors, but which are due very largely
ts sheer Btupidity and in some cases
Ullnesa of the investor, who does not
take the trouble to exercisf any pergonal oversight over tho investment. As
fair would it be to charge up againBt the
farming industry all the losses of the
stock exchange.
A distinction must be made between
bona lida investments and "flyers," as
they are sometimes called. No one
should attempt the latter unless be can
afford to loose what he puts into it, and
incase ef that loss the less he says
about it Ihe better wisdom does the loser
dirpUy.— Lardeau Ragle.
Sixty-five men, about forty whites and the
rest Chinese, are entombed in No. 6 shaft of
the Union Colliery Company's mines at
Union, and experts hold out no hopes for
their rescue. The shaft is blocked with
wreckage, although the hoist and fans are
working and the passageway leading from No.
5 to No. 6 shaft is blocked by fire and the
deadly after-damp.
It was 16.40 Friday morning when the explosion which made these unfortunate miners
prisoners in passages over 800 feet below thc
surface, occurred. At that hour the little
town of Union was rudely shocked by a
terrific explosion. The location was shown
hy the discharge from the moulh of No. 6
shaft of a volume of debris, including r\ine
timbers, which had been rent from th\r
fastenings, and a cloud of coal dust, which',
when it settled,covered thesurrounding.country
in a mantle of black. Near the shaft the
ground was covered with a layer of splintered
timbers an inch in thickness. Crowds im.
mediately gathered round lhe shaft and when
they found that this exit for the miners, who
had been at work in the shaft, had been
blocked by the force of lhe explosion, they
rushed over to No. 5 shaft, which connects
with No. 6, a passageway leading from one to
the other.
, The miners at work here had no need to be
told what had occurred; they had felt the
force of thc explosion even more' than those
above ground. When the explosion occurred,
they were thrown to the floor, and in one
drift three mine boxes . were thrown over a
mule, which was killed.,.;
Not a minute was lo_ in devising means
of rescuing the entombed miners, and although it was soon learned that the task was
an impossible one, the men bent to the work,
and rescue parties went to work in an effort
to force their way through the passage leading
from No. 5 to No. 6, while others started to
clear thc wrecked shaft, in which the hoisting
apparatus was still working, and a third party
started to cut through from the workings of
No. 4 to the chamber in which the men were.
Up to last night all these effor's had been in
vain and hope was abandoned, none believing
that any of the men could be found alive. If
not killed by the force of the explosion, a
still more terrible fate awaited them, for the
timbers of the mine were n fire, aad besides
this, there was the deadly afterdamp with
which to contend. But while they had little
hope of effecting a rescue, the men kept at
work al the three points. Those working in
No. 5 shaft had the greatest danger to contend
with, as the passageway was filled wilh afterdamp and the timbers were burning. Twice
they were driven out aflcr they almost reached
the gales which separate the two workings.
Finally ihey were ordered out, as it was evident that another explosion would occur in
the passageway on the No. 5 shaft side of the
This did take place shortly after 9 last
night, by which time the^mea had fortunately
been withdrawn. But while there was no
loss of life in this second explosion, it had the
effect of placing a greater obstacle in the way
of the rescue party.
No. 6 is the latest shaft opened by thc
Union Colliery Company, il having been
completed in October, 1899, after two years'
work. In the last report of the Minister of
Mines, this shait is relerred to as follows:
"This is a new shaft which was 'bottomed' in
October last at a depth of S14 feet. It is well-
constructed and timbered with a mid-wall,
and is now in full working order. The bottom is all timbered with IzxlS sawn bulks,
huilt solidly together, 16 feet wide and 11
feet high, Thc hoisting plant consists of a
I2xj6-inch engine, provided with suitable and
sufficient boiler service. The shaft is located
close to the railway, and all necessary sidings
have been provided. The seam struck is
seven feel thick. A level has been driven
from the bottom some eighty yaids, and headings have been started from both sides to
make connection with a heading which is being driven from No. 5 shaft." This connec-'
tion has since been made,

—Miss A. Ue Albert) In Academy.
This history of a onse of double personality has not. so far as 1 know, been
rcciinh'd before. More than 20 years
have elapsed since the death of Xoi-nh
S., and it is not now possible to obtain
many of the details which one would like
In have. Rut even in its imperfect state
the hi tory seems to me to present peculiarities which make it remarkable. 1 will
give it in two parts. This first part contains Information supplied by Miss X.,
who nctcd as Norah's governess and at a
httc-r period as her companion. This lady
is slill alive, and her wish to have all
n.-itiies suppressed must be respected.
The information is supplemented by a
few entries iu tlio notebook of a doctor
who nt one time attended Norah.
Xorah'a parents died when she was
still a baby, and unfortunately their family history cannot be traced. ITec father
was an English artist; the mother was
French and milch younger than her husband. They lived abroad—at Home for
the greater part of the year. It was
there that they died, within a few days
nf one another, of malignant malarial
fever. Norah was brought lo England
find adopted by a childless couple—her
father's brother and his wife.
The adoptive father has practically
nothing to do with this story. He seems
to ha.p been a commonplace little mau,
energetic in his profession —lie was a 80-
licilnr—nnd completely under the dominion nf his wife at homo. Mrs. S. was a
woman of strong and narrow religious
convictions and of a kindly nature. Bolh
were devoted to the child. They lived in
n suburb of a north country manufacturing town, where Mr. S had his practice.
Up to the age of 8 Norah received a certain amount of desultory teaching from
Mi*. S. Then a regular governess was
Miss X. was at thnt time a teacher of
more enthusiasm than judgment. Norah
was very fond of her; she was n child of
precocious intelligence; she was eager tn
learn. Miss X. wns proud of her pupil
and pushed her on. Tho child worked
six hours a day as a rule, sometimes more,
and she really did work. At thnt time
Unreasoning education wns just coming
into fashion. One is not surprised to find
that shortly nfter Norah's ninth birthdny
the doctor hnd to bo called in.
He was nu old gentleman, and he kept
n kind of rough notpbook in which he
recorded things of medical and other interest. He speaks of Norah as a pretty
little gypsy. He found that she slept ili,
was very nervous nnd had a poor and capricious appetite. She was amende, but
lie bled her nil the same. For thc rest
his treatment seems to a layman to have
been sensible enough. He gave her a
Ionic, which probably did her no harm.
He regulated her diet. He absolutely
forbade all lessons for the next three
months. He sent her to the seaside and
gave instructions that she wns to piny
with" other children. He noticed, by the
Wify—of course before the days when
such things became « special study—that
Norah frowned and twisted her face if
she were asked a question that it wns
difficult or unpleasant for her to answer.
The child went to r.owestoft Willi her
adoptive mother and Miss X. Mr. 3.
was detained by bis business. The doctor had given Miss X. the rough side of
his tongue. In his nolebook he speaks
of her ns "the hired assassin." She was
duly penitent, fint lhe old gentleman
recogni'/.ed that she had mnde her mistake through Ignorance and thjit the
adoptive mother hnd shared the ignc-
ranee and encouraged the overpressure.
He saw, too, that the child was very
fond of her nnd thnt it would be bad for
lhe child to part them at this juncture.
Miss X. In her distress had resigned her
post, but the doctor would not permit her
in go. He told her lilunlly (but she had
done enough harm without thnt. She
wns now ns eager to .'iniuse Norah and
nurse her back to health as she had for-
luerly beeu lo turn her into an infant
prodigy.   The child got rapidly better,
On Ihe afternoon of Sept 'JS. 1SI14-
tbe dale is fixed by a Idler in Miss X'.'s
possession—Norah went oui lo play on
the bi'iveh wilh some young friends
whose nenunintiince she hud recently
made. At tentlme, as she did not re-
' ntl-n. Miss'X. went out lo link for her.
She found" ber olone under the cliff fast
asleep.   She'woke her.
•'Why, Norah. you've been asleep!"
site said.
The'chilil looked surprised "I'm not
Norah," she said. "Norah's gone away.
I'm Janet."
Miss X. at first thought this wns some
childish joke. "And who's Janet?" she
"Norah's twin sisicr. Didn't yon KnnW"
She's told me all about you and Mrs. S."
So far ps is known Norah's parents hnd
no oilier child " '"• worth noting, loo.
thnt lhc normal Norah never spoke of
"Mrs. S." She always called her "mother." ,.   ,
Miss X. began to gel s little nervous,
but she still tried to get Ihe child to confess that this wns some silly joke. It
was useless. The child persisted that
she wns Janet. She was annoyed nt having It questioned and asked Miss X. not
lo tease her. ,,      a

n new picture book, aud she said she
would give it to her if she would write
her proper mime in It.
"I will write Norah's nnme if you like,
tun I am nol Ni.rah. She bas goue

Sbc picked up a pencil and wrote thc
name quickly and without hesitation.
Then the two women knew that some-
tbing wns wrong, for the name was written in looking glass writing—writing thnt
must he held to a mirror to he rend. After lhat, at Miss X.'s suggestion, they
dropped the question of identity and talked to her nbout other things. She seemed
perfectly reasonable, but less quick to
understuml things than Norah usually
was. It was noticed lhat. unlike Norah
in her normal condition, she was left
handed. Miss X. thinks there were
some other slight differences from the
normal Norah—in the appearance if ihe
eyes, the tone of the voice and the choice
of words, fint ns to these she ciunot
speak very precisely nfter this lapse of
The child slept until long after her usual hour next morning.    When she woke,
she hnd no knowledge of anything that;
had happened since 't'e went to sleep on
the bench.    She was completely restored
to her normal condition.    Mrs. S. had
been in a state of great distress.    It win
not uncommon at thut period for people
to regard phthisis as romantic nnd nny
menial derangement hs disgraceful.  Cer- '
tnlnly Mrs. S. took lhe latter view.    She ;
was rejoiced to find the child restored to j
herself, and she hound  Miss X.  to say
nothing about   thi' Incident  to anybody,
"lest  people should   bring it up against
her afterward."   She considered that No- I
rah had been too much in tiie sun and .
Ihnt this had "made her silly" for a time, j
Considering that   the  disappearance of i
the symptoms meant  lhe disappearance ]
of the disease, she did not call in u doctor.
Norah apparently completely regained
her health. She did not become an infant prodigy. At lhe nge of 14, when
Miss X. left her and she was placed in
lhc hands of foreign governesses, she
seems lo have been a fairly normal girl,
a little emotional perhaps, but with no
tendencies to melancholy, fond of sport,
eager lo see lhe world.
Fight years afterword Miss X. took the
post of companion to Norah. During the
interval she had once more become an orphan, nnd she lind'inherited Mr. S.'s fortune, which wns nut Immense, but was
much greater than it had been supposed
he would leave behind him. It gave Norah an Income of about £1.700 a year.
She came to London, where she had
many fiTetuls. Some of these were anxious to have her live wilh them, but she
was f'Uid of her independence. She
wrote lo Miss X.. with whom she had
kept up a desultory correspondence, nnd
an arrangement was soon made between
lliem They lived together in a comfortable house in Hninpstend. Here nlso
Miss X. noticed nothing that could be
called abnormal nbout Nornh. She was
bright nml energetic, fond of pleasure
and particularly fond of getting new experiences.
Norah wns at this time engaged to be
married to ii distinguished orientalist and
traveler, a man about ten years older
than herself, lo whom she was devoted.
Il was nrrnnged that after the marriage
Miss X. wns lo net us her housekeeper.
Three days before the marriage was to
have taken place Norah committed sui
elds, poisoning herself with oxalic acid.
It is not a good suicide poison, because
Ihe antidote is to be found ready at hand
iu most houses. But Nornh wns not discovered; she took the poison in a diluted
form and died in her sleep.
No motive of any kind could be found
for lhe act at the time, and the usual
verdict was reiurned.
By her will she left to Miss X. nn an
unity and all her books and papers.
Among the latter wns a bundle nf penny
exercise hooks tied up wilh string and
marked "Nol to be read until a year nfter my dentil." Rightly or wrongly, Miss
X. made no mention of those at the inquest. It is from then) Ihnt the brief
second part of Norah's history is here
written. 1 have not been permitted to
rend the whole of these hunks ns yet.
Much of what I have read 1 am not permitted to repent here, and of verbatim
quotation I eari give very little.
These hooks are a revelation of the
tragedy of Norah's life. They aie con-
ci-rned principally with her second personality, Janet, and are not consecutive,
long lapses occurring between the dates
of the differeiil books.
There is no reference to the Lowestoft
incident iu them. The first hook is dated
when Norah was IS years old. The first
line begins: "I wns Janet iu my sleep
Inst night. It Is no good to pray any
more. One dny she will come when I am
awake, nnd everybody will kuow, and
they will shut 1110 up somewhere aud sny
that 1 am mad."
Thai note of horror is repeated all
through Ihe books. She makes miserable Utile pathetic lests of her sanity and
enn find nothing wrong but that oue
thing—thnt she feels Hint she mny at nny
time lose her personality, that Janet must
come hack. She feels il a disgrace that
she is not like other people: she longs for
help and sympathy, yet not for worlds
would she speak of her trouble lo a sin
gle soul.
She appears to have some means, never
iudieaieil. of coiiiiuuiiicaling with tills
mysterious twin sister. She speaks of
telling her things and of exacting a
promise from her that she will never
come buck except when Norah is alone nt
night. Then we hear no more of these
conversations, which are reported in n
moat mailer of fact way, and another
horror springs up. .Iimel means to ruin
her. She will never speak, but Norah
After that comes n period of nbout n
year, during which there nre no Holes nl

deuce in London and .licltldes the few
months of her engagement. Indeed II
may he doubted if Norah ever wrote Id

hand.    I held it ton mirror and rend:

*'A short time ago we wore invited to

of one of ihe Navajo braves m one of

This ceremony was to he performed hi
the true Indian custom about four miles
from l'ort Delia nee at ahou T o'clock in
tho evening. We nnived at the designated In.i at the uppoinled time, and a

than of a pack of wolves.
"Fifty braves hnd gathered on th!s oc-

about thc table in the hut and enjoying
cur supper immensely. After we had
partaken of tin- meal a large earthen dish
was brought forth, and the medicine
man, who then acted iu the capacity of
piiest, began the making of a pudding.
We ascertained from the Indians nt our
side that this was to lie thc wedding cake.
While seated in thc hut the approach of
many horses could be heard. These, we
learned, were from the bridegroom as
pay to his father-in law for his prospective hi ide.

Then, tnklug the jug, he poured water on
the hands of Che bride and com ma tided
her to wash h'-th hauds of her f.itu e

to tbe party. The puddiug looked tempting and must have tastcfl good, judging
from the manner in which the Indian
guests reached for it.
"This marriage ceremony is not infrequent among thc Indians, for they believe
In plural marriages, aud some have a

Wholesome spices are used on a large
scale in ihid country. Ti.ue wns when
many i|f ihcui were worth their weight
iu gold, lint today t'.o'.v are all cultivated so that they cost .inly a fraction of
what .bey did iu ancient days. It is snid
that l'bny paid nt tlio rate of $5 per
pound for pepper. Now blnck and white
pepper is so cheap that we use it in everything, There are some queer uses to
which spices' arc put in some countries.
In ninny hut lands a pepper ten is made
and consumed iu great quantities, and
the spi.e i.-i liberally mixed with all foods
to stimulate the appetite. In the cold
northern woods the logmen use it as n
stimulant, mixing it with wnter and
drinking it hot. It is said to be an antidote for colds that takes the place of
more harmful stimulants.
Cloves when properly used are whole
some. The oil of cloves is used for
medicinal purposes, nnd its pungent, aromatic linvor cinkes it nn exceedingly
pleasant remedy for the loothiiche. Like
pepper, the "il of cloves Is lined to ward
off a cold lu some climates. A few
drops n( il in warm milk ure mildly elli-
cn'.i'ous. The scent of tlie oil of cloves is
disliked very much by the smnll vermin
which live in old wooden furniture, nud
n few cli-ops'on the woodwork will generally drive them out. In early dnys
hams were always cooked stuck full of
cloves, and this practice is still kept up
in parts of the south. The spices give
to the meat a delicate flavor.

Tho Boston Transcript says: "A diverting nnecdotc Is told of the boyhood
of Mr. Whistler, the greatest modern
Impressionist. He was apprenticed to
some engineers who were etching elaborate maps on copper. One day bia
employer aBked lilm If he also could
etch maps on copper. 'Oh, yes. I enn
etch,' promptly answered young Whistler.
"As a matter of fact he had never
used an etching needle In his life.
However, they gave him tlie copper,
uud he set to work, making a very line
and beautiful map. But round the
edges of the plate, which when bitten
In with acid are always stopped out, he
etched some characteristic little sketch-
es of the different members of the
firm, Including a very humorous one of
the chief himself.
"Shortly after ho hnppened to go
away for a week or two for his holiday. Meantime the plate had been
bitten In nnd printed with all of the
drendfui little caricatures that he had
forgotten to stop out appearing In startling prominence, the sketch of the
chief being especially remarkable because of Us great resemblance to that
gentleman, who was so enraged nt the
indignity of tbe tiling that Immediately
on Whistler's return he dismissed

Anaemia is lhe term used by doctors
to indicate poverty of the blood. The
alarming, especially among young
girls, und a large percentage of the
altogether too numerous cases of consumption which annually ravage the
country have their origin in this
trouble. The lirst indication of anaemia is a pale, sallow or waxy complexion. This is followed b.v loss of
appetite, frequent headaches, inilispo-
linii to exertion, swelling of limbs,
violent heart palpitation und frequently fainting liis. These symptoms
may not all be present, but the more
there ure the greater the urgency for
prompt nnd effective treatment,which
should bo persisted in until nil traces
of thc trouble have vanished. Among
the thousands who have been brought
near to the brink of the irrave from
this trouble, and ultimately restored
to health through thc use of Dr.
Williams' Pink fills, i.s Miss Delia
Boyd, an estimable young lady whose
home is at Cobourg. Miss Boyd gives
her experience ns follows : —
"It is nearly ten years since my illness first commenced, and although I
was doctoring more or less I received
little or no benefit, as the doctors
did not seem to understand my trouble. Two years ago my health became so bad tbat another _octor was
celled in, and he stated that my case
was a most severe type of anaemia,
and that while he could help me lhe
trouble had progressed to such a
stage lhat be could hold ont little
hopes of a cure. At this time I was
as pale as chalk, my eyelids were
swollen and would hang down over
my eyes like sacks of water. My feet
and limbs would swell, and were always cold. I was subject to violent
headaches, ncvere palpitation of the
heart, and il I stooped .ever T wou'.d
be-so "dizzy that I could scarcely regain an upright position. My appetite failed mo. almost entirely, audi
grew so weak that I was a mere
wreck. While in this condition I
read in a newspaper of the cure of
a young girl whose case was much
like mine, through the use of Pr. Williams' Pink Tills, and I determined
to try them. Those who knew me
rid not think any medicine could do
me any good or that 1 would ever
gel better, but I determined at all
events to give (he pills a fair trial.
I havo used them for nearly a yetti
wilh the result that I feel like a new
person. The swelling in my eyelids
and limbs has' disappeared; my appetite is good and my face is regaining
the color which left it years ago. 1
