Dear Sir:—As I promised I write what
little news I have from the Upper Iloscfly.
On the 19th I sent out two men, J. R.
William., and II. I*. Hansen, who returned
yesterday after prospecting Empire and
Eureka Creeks also another creek live miles
up the Horsefly on which they found some
gold but not enough to cause any excitement. They then went up the main Horsefly river, about j_ miles f,ir:h:r up th.tn the
upper creek above mentioned but did not
locate any ground. There was about four
biches of snow on the 2& when on their return thoy met Robt. Nesbitt nnd your correspondent going UPi who would re;xh
Ducket's cabin that night.
They report to nie the prospects of an
extensive quartz country which promises
web f r the future.
J. R. Williams round old workings on the
Horsefly ij miles above the creeks mentioned,
Wc expect that next s neon's work will
fully prospec. the numerous creeeks Mowing intc the Horsefly and I have every reas-
01 to expect tbat they will discover the
s.turcc of the gold thai suppljte the Horse*
•fly and no doubt the creeks when found
will be very rich but from al! accounts they
have not found t   nn  yet.

LORD SALISBURY ON THE WAR.
At the Lord Mayor's banquet held in the
Guildhall, London, Lord Salisbury referred
lo the war in South Africa and said ''It is
pleasant to ec o'tint tin price of the world
has been so litlle disturbed by the events of
the past two years. I strongly deprecate the
spirit of pessimism so fiequ-nily heard in
utterances of some of our public men, as to
the war in which we arc engaged, Unlike
the wars of former years, uo longer does the
capture of thc enemy's capital and thc dissipation of his field force constitute a conclusive
victory.
'Wc are now confronted with a system of
guerilla warfaie which must he slowly nntl e f-
eclively stamped out. 1 cannot t. ke the
public into the confidence of the government
and it would bemo-t imprudent publicly to
slate all we are doing weekly and monthly at
the front, but what 1 emphatically declare is
that whatever delays arc encoun ered, these
are not due to thelaik of earnestness and
ability uf our generals in the field nor to a
neglect to comply with all of lhc demands
on tie part uf the home government."

THE CONCERT.
The Concert announced in our issue ol Nov,
-nil was brought to a successful conclusion
last Friday evening. A till house greeted
the performers, and thc rendering of thc
v.nicd  programme left litlle to be desired.
Miss McDonald of London, Ont. was acknowledged to be at her best, and the debut
of Mis Howell of .'ict. tin, on a Lillooet
Concert platform, was an unqualified success.
Many good things might be said of the local
talent, special mention being made of Miss
Clark who was untiring in her efforts as organist anil pianist.
Mr. Wawn surprised the audience by singing a song with a banjo accompaniment, in-
rioad of playing an Instrumental selection as
announced on the programme.
The net proceeds were $-?.75 which to-
getether wilh n special donation of $5 from
Mr Peters, will be given towards clearing off
thc $70 debt on the Church and Parsonage
Fence The remaining debt is Iherefoie only
$i6.2S.

The sure road to failure is to do nothing

Fint class work is always in demand and
it is cheap. Shoddy and sham may impose
sonic times upon Ihe unwary and ignorant,
but they never   gain  a  permanent market.
Charles Dickeni started life as the '/on'of

some fortunate circuuistane may form the

but thc ronnds of thc ladder must he made

sincere earnestness. Whatever I have tried
to do in my life I have tried wilh all my
heart to do well. Whatever I have devoted

In professional and commercial life the

Entered accord; n„ to Aet of Pilrliaue. lit of Canada, in the year itlul, by Willeiui Bally of Toronto, at Um Jjci.armiciiL ol AgriuuUure,
Ottawa.
Washington, Oct. '27.—In tills discourse Ur. Talniage demonstrates
thut we are affected by forces that
we .seldom recognize and enlarges
upou human accountability. The
text is Job xxxviii, 81, "Canst thou
bind the sweet Influences of Pleiades?"
What i.s the meaning of thut question winch God put to Job? Have
We all our lives been reading it, and
aro most of us ignorant of its beauty
and power and practical suggestive-
ness? A meaningless passage of
Scripture many thought it to be,
but the telescopes were busy age after age, and astronomical observations kept on questioning the skies
until the meaning of my text comes
out lustrously. The Pleiades is a
constellation of seven stars appearing to the naked eye, but scientific
instruments reveal more than 400
properly belonging to tlie group. Alcyone is the name of the brightest
star of that group called the
Pleiades. A Russian astronomer observed that Alcyone is the centre of
gravitation of our solar system.
Hugh Maemillati says that the sua
and its planets wheel around that
centre at the rate of .__,000 miles
a day in an orbit which it will take
19,000,000 years to complete. The
Pleiades appear in the springtime and
are associated wilh flowers and gen-
iul warmth and good weather. The
navigation of the Mediterranean was
from Way to November, the rising
and the setting of the Pleiades. The
priests of Belus noticed that rising
and setting 2,000 years before
Christ.
Now, the glorious meaning of my
text is plain as well as radiant. To
givo Job the beautiful grace of humility God asked him, "Canst thou
bind tho sweet influences of the
Pleiades?" Have you any power
over the laws of gravitation? Can
you modify or change an influence
wielded by a star more than 400,000
miles away? Can you control the
winds of the springtime? Can you
call out the flowers? How little you
know compared with omniscience?
How little you can do compared with
omnipotence!
The probability is that Job had
been tempted lo arrogance by his
vast attainments. He was a metallurgist, a zoologist, a poet, and
shows by his writings he had knowledge of hunting, of music, of husbandry, of medicine, of mining, of
astronomy and perhaps was so far
ahead of the scholars and scientists
of his tima that he may have been
somewhat puffed up; hence this interrogation of my text. And there is
nothing that so soon takes down human pride as an interrogation point
rightly thrust. Christ used it
mightily. Paul mounted the parapet
of his great arguments with such a
battery. Men of the world understand it. Demosthenes began his
speech to the crown and Cicero liis
oration against Catiline and Lord
Chatham his most famous orations
with a question. The empire of ignorance is so much vaster than the
empire of knowledge that after the
most learned and elaborate disquisition upon any subject of sociology or
theology the plainest man may ask
a question that will make the wisest
speechless. After the profoundest ns-
sault upon Christianity tho humblest
disciple mny make an inquiry that
would silence a Voltaire.
Called upon, as we all ure at times,
to defend our holy religion, instead
of argument that can always be an-
' swered by argument let us try tho
power of interrogation. We ought
to be loaded with at least half a
dozen questions and always ready,
and when Christianity is assailed,
and we are told there is nothing in
it and there is no Cod and there
never was a miracle and that the
Scriptures are unreasonable and
cruel and that there never will be a
judgment day take out of your portable armory of interrogation something like this: "What makes the condition of woman in Christian lands
better than in heathen lands? Do
you think it would bo kind in God
to turn the human race into a world
without nny written revelation to
explain and encourage nnd elevate
and save? And if a revelation was
made, which do you prefer—the Zen-
da-Vista of thc Persian or the Confucian writings of the Chinese or the
Koran of Mohammed or our Bible?
If Christ i.s not u. divine being, what
did he mean when he snid, 'Before
Abrnm was, 1 am?' If tlie Bible is
a bad book, what, aro the evil results
of reading it? Did you see any degrading influence of the book iu your
father or mother or sister who used
to read it? Do you not think that
a judgment day is necessary in order
to explain and fix up things that
wero never explained or fixed up? if
our religion is illogical and an imposition upon human credulity, why
were Ilerschcl nnd Washington and
Gladstone and William McKinley its
advocates?7 How did it happen that
our religion furnished the themo for
the greatest poem ever written.
'Paradiso Lost.' and to the painters
their greatest themes in the 'Adoration of the Magi,' 'The Transfiguration,' 'The Last Supper,' 'Tlio Crucifixion,' The Entombment,' 'Tho
Last Judgment,' and that all the
schools of painting put forth thoir
utmost genius In presenting 'The Madonna?' "
Why was it that William Shake-
ipcure after amazing the world as ho
will  ainoze the centuries    with    tho
splendor and power ot "The Merchant of Venice," and "Coriolanus,"
and "Richard Hi.," and "King
Lear," and "Othello," and "Macbeth," Hiid "Hamlet," wrote With
his own hand his last will and testament, beginning it witli the words,
"In the name of God, amen! 1, William Shakespeare, of Stratford-on-
Avon, in tlie county of Warwick, ir
perfect health and memory (God be
praised!) do make and ordain this
my Inst will and testament through
the only merits of Jesus Christ, my
Saviour, to be made partaker of life
everlasting and my body to the earth
whereof it is made?" Had Shakespeare lost his reason when lie wrote
his faith in Christ and the great
atonement? Put your antagonist a
few questions like that, ami you will
find him excusing himself for an engagement he must meet immediately.
These words also recognize fur-
reaching Influences. Job probaoly
had no adeuuute idea of the distance
of the worlds mentioned from our
world, but. he knew them to be far
olT, and we, who have had the advantage of modern sidereal Investigation, ought to be still more impressed than was Job witli the question
of the text, as it puts before us tin-
fact that worlds hundreds of miles
distant have a grip on our world.
There are sweet influences which hold
us from afar. There may have been
in our ancestral line perhaps 1100
years ago some consecrated man or
woman who has held over all tlie
generations since an influence for
good which we liave no power to realize, and we in turn by our virtue
or vice may influence those who shall
live 200 years from now. Moral
gravitation is as powerful as material gravitation, and if, as my text
teaches and science confirms; the
Pleiades, which are 422,000 miles
from our earth, influence the earth,
we ought to be impressed with how
wo may be influenced by others far
away back and how we may Influence
others far down the future.
Astronomers can easily locate the
Pleiades. They will take you into
their observatories on a clear night
and aim their revealing instrument
toward the part in the heavens
where those seven stars have their
habitude, and they will point to the
constellation Taurus, and you can
see for yourself. But it is impossible
to point to influences far back that
have affected our character and will
affect our destiny. We know the influences near by—paternal, maternal,
conjugal—but by the time wo have
gone back two generations, or, at
most, three, our investigations falter and fail. Through the modern
interesting habit of searching back
to find thc ancestral tree wo may
(ind a long list of names, but they
are only names. The consecration
or abandonment of some one 200
years ago was not recorded, it
would not be so-important if you
and I, by our good or bad behavior,
blessed or blasted only thoso immediately around us, but our goodness
or badness will reach as far us the
strongest ray of Alcyone—yea, across
the eternities. Under this consideration, what do you think of those
who give themselves up to frivolity
or idleness and throw away fifty
years of their existence as though
they were shells or pebbles or pods
instead of embryo eternities?
I suppose one of the greatest t-ur-
prises of tho next world will be to
seo what wide, farrcaching influence
for good or evil we have all exerted.
I am speaking of ourselves, who are
only ordinary people. Uut who can
fully appreciate the farreuching good
done by men of wealth in Great Britain for the working classes—Mr. Lister of Bradford, Edward Akroyd of
Halifax, Thomas Sikes of lludders-
field, Joseph Wentworth and Josiah
Mason  and Sir Titus  Salt? This
last great, soul, with his vast wealth,
provided 750 houses at cheap rent
for 3,000 working people and chapel
and cricket ground and croquet lawn
and concert hall and savings bunk,
where they might deposit some of
their earnings, and life insurance for
those who looked further ahead
and bathouses and parks und museums and lecture halls with philosophical apparatus, the generous example of those men of a previous
generation being copied in many
places in Canada and the United
States, making life, which would otherwise be a prolonged drudgery, nn
inspiration and a joy.
Notice also in my text the influence of other worlds upon this world.
We all regard the effect which our
continent has upon other continents
or one hemisphere upon the other
hemisphere. Great     harvest      or
drought on one side of our world
affects tlie oilier side of our world.
A panic in Wall street. New York,
has ils echo in Lombard street and
tho bourse. The nations of tho
earth cablegramnied together all feel
the same thrill of delight or slunk
of woe. But wc do not appreciate
the influence of other worlds upon
our world. The author of my text
rouses us to the consideration. It
takes all the worlds of known und
unknown astronomy to keep our
World in its orbit. Every World dependent on other worlds. Thr stol-
lar existence is fell, all through the
heavons, Every constellation is a
sisterhood, Our plunet feels the
benediction of Alcyone nnd all the
other stars of the Pleiades. Yea.
there aro two other worlds thnt. decide the fate of our world — its redemption or its demolition. Those
two worlds are the headquarters of
nngelology . and doinonolo.y. From
tlio one world came Christ, come
ministering spirits, come ull gracious influences. From the other
world rise all Satanic and diabolic
influences. From that world of
moral night rose the power that
wrecked our poor world six thousand
years ago, and all the good work
done since then has not been able
to get our world out of tho breakers. But the signs of distress have
been hoisted and the lifelines nro
out, and our world's release is certain. The good influences of the
consecrated people in our world will
be centupled by the help from tho
heavenly world, and tho divine power will overcome the demoniac. O
man, O woman, expand your idea
nnd know the magnitude of a contest  in  which  three  worlds  are  spe
cially Interested! From all the
seven worlds which my t.-::l calls
_the Pleiades there come no such powerful influences as from the two
worlds that I am now mentioning.
My only hope for this world is in
tho re-cufuixeiiient that is tn come
from another world. But that is
promised, and so I feel us sure of
the rectification of all evil as
though looking out of my window
to-day I saw the parks and the
gardens (lowering iuto another paradise and the apocalypic angel flying
through the midst of heaven with
the news that the kingdoms of this
world would have become the kingdoms of our Lord.
My text called Job and calls us to
consider "tlie sweet influences." We
put too much emphasis upon the
acidities of life, upon the irritations
of life, upon the disappointments of
life. Not sufficiently do we recognize the sweet influences of the wife.
We men are of a rougher mold, und
our voice is loud, uud our manners
need to be tamed, and gentleness is
not as much of a characteristic as
it ought to be. and we often say
things we ought to take buck. It
is to change this that the good wife
comes in. The interests of the twain
are identical. That whicli from ollt-
siilris would be considered criticism
und Lo be resented becomes kindly
suggestion. Sweet Influences that
make us better men tluin we otherwise would have been or could have
been!
Tlie lust chapter of Proverbs recognizes the good wife's, influence
when it says, "Her husband is
known in the gutes when he sitteth
among the elders of the hind" —
that is, his apparel indicates that
he has some one to look after his
wardrobe,       und   his  manners     show
tlmt he is under refining influences
at home. But no one fully appreciates the sweet influences of the wife
until the dark day comes and the
slight symptoms become serious and
the serious phases of the disorder
pass into thc fatal and the temperature is 106 and medical ingenuity
is exhausted and you are told for
your consolation that "while there
is life there is hope." whicli means
that there is no hope at all, and
the precious life flutters and is
gone, and you must put out of sight
the one who from tiie day she took
lhe vow amid the orange, blossoms
under the marriage bell had been
to you more than all the world besides. Then you realize as never before what hud been the sweet influences.
Sweet influences of friendship! If
we have behaved ourselves tolerably
well, we have friends. In our days
of mirth they come with their congratulations, in times of sorrow
they come with expressions of solace. In times ol herpiexity they
come with their advice. They ore
with us nt weddings and at burials.
If there i.s anything good in us, they
(ind it out, and our frailties they
overlook and excuse. If something
appears against us, they sny. "Wait
till 1 hear the other _|dde." If disaster shall befall us. we know from
whom would come the lirst condolence. Family friends; church
friends; business friends;- lifelong
friends. In our heart of hearts we
cherish them.
Sweet influences of our holy religion, surrounded as we are by all
the amenities of Christian society—
men and women who have felt the
refining and elevating power of the
gospel! Sweet influences of the Sabbath, fifty-two of them chiming
their joy into every year! Sweet
influences of the Scriptures, with
their balm for nil wounds and their
light for every        darkness!
When the heirs of a vast
estate in England wished to establish their claim to property
worth SI00,000,00, they offered a
reward of SfiOO for the recovery of
an old Bible, the family record of
which contained the ovidence requisite. But any Bible, new or old,
can help us to a vaster inheritance
than the one spoken of, one that
never fades away.
The stories of that world and its
holy hilarities come in upon our
souls sometimes in song, sometimes
in sermon, sometimes in hours of
solitary reflection, and they arc, to
uso the words of my text, sweet influences. But there is one star that
affects us more with its sweet influences than the centre star, the Alcyone of the Pleiades, and that is
what one Bible author calls the Star
of Jacob and another Bible author
calls the Morning Star. Of all the
sweet influences thnt have ever
touched our earth those that radiate     from  Christ  are  the  sweetest.
Sweet influences of the Holy
Ghost, with all ils transforming and
comforting nnd emancipating power.
When that power is fully felt, there
will be no more sins to pardon, and
no more wrongs to correct, and no
more sorrows to comfort, and no
more bondage to break. But us the
old time ship captains watched the
rising of the Pleiades for safe navigation nnd set snil in Mediterranean
waters, but were sure to get back
Int.. port before the constell.it lull
Orion culm' inlet sight — the season
of cyclone and hurricane — so there
is a time to sail for heaven, and
that is while the sweet influences are
upon us and before the storms overtake the delay. Opon nil vour soul
to the light nntl warmth and comfort unit Inspiration of thut gospel
which has already peopled heaven
with millions of the ransomed and
is helping other millions to that
glorious destination. Do not postpone the things of God and eternity
till the storms of life swoop und the
agitations of a great future nre upon us. Do not dare wait till Orion
takes the plnce of the Pleiades.
Weigh anchor now and with chart
unrolled and pilot on board head
for the reunions and raptures that
await all the souls forgiven. "And
they need no candle, neither light of
the" sun, for the Lord God triveth
them light, and they shall reign forever and ever."

Caldwell•« lililii.
John Burns of Bedford had at on«
lime a very narrow escape from the
Indians, the man with him being
killed und scalped. One of Burns'
neighbor's neighbors, by the name
of Caldwell, used frequently to teuse
him about thc occurrence, und question his courage in tlie affair, and
end by declaring wdiat lie would have
done under such circumstances. Ono
evening Caldwell was at his neighbor's, and Burns found his boasting
rather hard to bear.
"I suppose you know just what
you'd do if you met an Indian that
wanted your scalp?"  Burns inquired.
"Well, I guess I do," was Caldwell's confident reply, and he soon
took his departure,
No sooner had he left the house
than Burns rigged himself up as
much like nn Indian as possible, and
sallied forth after Caldwell. He soon
came near him, and without ;naking
any other noise broke somo dry
twigs. Caldwell heard the ' sound
and gave one glance backward.
It was a clear, moonlight evening,
nnd Caldwell had no difficulty in seeing tho Indian. He sprang quickly
into the bushes, whero ho stood still.
Burns, too, stepped into the bushes.
After a while Caldwell ventured out.
nnd looking fearfully around moved
forward. Burns followed, breaking
more twigs. Caldwell again conceal-
ed-himself in the bushes, and his pursuer did the same. Several times
this performance was repeated.
At length Caldwell could endure it
no longer, and leaping from the
bushes he ran forward at his topmost speed. Burns uttered a wild
whoop and pursued him. When Caldwell came to the brook, which was
spanned by a single plank, ho was in
such haste that he could not stop for
the bridge but bounded through the
water.
He ran into the first house he enme
to and gasped, "Tho woods are full
of Indians — more'n a. thousand of
'cm! And they'll be here in a minute! Where's the gun? Where's a
gun?" He was in a terrible fright.
While the owner of the house was
trying to find out what really had
occurred, Burns appeared at the
door, laughing heartily. "I say,
Caldwell," he said, "I thought you
said you wouldn't run for an Indian."
A CANADIAN! INVENTION.
Something   About   tlie    I ... Knliild    little
Mlili'h  Heat Ilu* Vall-.-S.
Critics have lately been telling us
that the Lee-Kniield rifle is scarcely
good enough for the Canadian militiamen, yet witli that same weapon
a team of Canadian riflemen defeated a picked eight of Yankee shots in
New Jersey lust week, says the Gait
Reporter.
Mr. James P. Lee, who is now residing in Gait, docs not claim that
'.lie British national arm—his invention — is the best one in existence.
Since the British Government accepted his model he has improved
the magazine arrangeinujit, but when
conferred with, the War Oflice refused to adopt the improvement. Tlie
latest Lee gun is the arm of the
American navy; not, however, of the
army, which uses the American
Krag. People who do not understand the ways of Yankee politicians
will doubtless be puzzled over the
rejection of the Lee gun by the War
Department at Washington. Tho
manufacturers of the Krag rifle have
displayed a vast amount of finesse
in securing recognition for their gun,
but It must rather stagger them to
lind that in a duel between the national arms of the two nations Cun-
adian shots were able to prove conclusively the superiority of thc Lec-
Enfield. At the (longest range, especially, was the British weapon in
the hands of our riflemen most effective.
Had justice been done Mr. Lee thc
United States army would to-day be
using his gun—the weapon now in
the hands of the United States
navy. As things stand, experiments
show that the weapon bearing f*
Lee's name, and which the inve, e
claims us just a littlo inferior to the
latest product of his mechanical
skill, has outpointed the American
Krag in a test that must be regarded as a fair one, though the conditions favored the Americans, shoitt-
ing as they were on home ranges.
We don't think Canada is yet ready
to discard the Lee-Enfield— or look
with contempt on the Lee-Metford—
for the Krag-Jorgessen or the Mauser. The gun now in our hands
seems to be just ns good as any of
them.

The Cigarette Curee.
The crusade against the cigarette
says a contemporary, gathers forco
Superintendent Ferricr of tlie Mimico
Industrial School reports that out of
twenty-live boys recently admitted to
that school eighteen were confirmed
cigarette smokers. This is an alarming fact and should arouse the police
force of the towns and cities to such
action as will compel respect for the
law governing the sale of cigarettes
to children. The Toronto News, in
view of Supt.  Pernor's report, says:
"The use of cigarettes by children
is increasing witli alarming rapidity
and i.s far-reaching in its effects, in
that it undermines the health at a
period when the foundation of physical and mental vigor is laid.
"Dealers in the deadly weapon aro
not sufficiently Interested in the future of the race to so guard their
sales that no children will bo their
customers. There also seems to bo
a carelessness on the part of the authorities in enforcing' tho statute,
which inflicts a lino of from ?10 to
JfiO on nny person who sells, gives
or furnishes cigarettes to a minor under eighteen years of ago. A prosecution for such an offence is seldom
heard of."
A   I una,i inn   Labor  red-ration.
Following i.s the reference made to
national organization in the Presidential address of Mr. Ralph Smith,
M.P., the other day at thc Trades
and Labor Congress at Branlford:
"I think it is of vast importance
that this congress should accept
some method of increasing its own
usefulness. There ought t.o be a Canadian federation, for, whilst i believe that unionism ought to be international in its methods, to meet
the necessity of combating common
foes, this usefulness is .only assured
by the strength of national unions.
A federation of American unions, represented by a national union, and
a federation of Canadian unions, represented by a national union, each
working witli the other in special
cases, would be a great advantage
over having local unions in Canada
connected with the national unions
of America. I think greater success
would be accomplished in tho settlement of disputes in each country if
thc leaders of ench were the representative's of their- own national
grievances. I do not reflect on any
American officials who have handled
our labor troubles in Canada, but I
am certain of this, that there ure such
distinctive differences in the condition of each that a presentment of
Canadian matters by Canadian leaders, and vice versa by American leaders, would lead to a greater success,
and would not in any wny prevent a
federation of the  national  bodies."

The Dawson News prints a remarkable story about the prospecting
tour, just completed, of 11. W. Brack-
on. who has returned to Dawson after six months in Northern Alaska.
Bracken says that about 1,000
miles from Dawson he and his servants ascended a glacier 8,000 feet
high. 'There they found a herd of
mountain sheep frozen in the ice. Tho
theory is that some extreme midwinter blizzard caught thorn while
Stampeding over the dome, the sheep
huddled together and perished, the
snow gradually forming an icy coating.
Whatever parts of tho bodies were
above the ice had been devoured by
Arctic bears and wolves.

expressions of good will and sympathy towards the American people
are, it i.s satisfactory to learn, being

of sorrow the citizens of the United
States will unite with their neighbors, the Canadians, to greet in
America the Duke and Duchess with
enthusiasm, and will only hope that
their experience in Canada be as

SPIRIT SLATE WRITING.
Uow   tbe   Mysterious   Sentence.   Are
I'repureil lu Advance.
Spiritualistic slate writing, if cleverly
done, always makes a marked Impression on a magician's audience because
it utterly battles their efforts to detect
tlie trick. They see a small cabinet
suspended abuvo the stage by means
of cords or ribbons. It has an open
front and is empty. The magician
turns It around so that every part of
it may be seen and taps it inside aud
out with his wand to show that it is
hollow.
On a stand near by he has a small
easel, a common school slate, a bottlo
of India Ink with a quill pen in it and
n few sheets of ordinary white writing
paper. All these he pnsses around
ainoug the audience for examination.
Then ho fixes a sheet of the paper to
the slate by means of wafers, places
the slate on the easel and the easel iu
the cabinet, together with the bottle of
ink, the latter having the pen still in It.
Having allowed the audienco to see
the articles thus arranged in the cabl-
uet, he throws a large silk handkerchief over it Mysterious sounds are
Immediately heard, nud the cabinet
shakes as If some living thing hnd entered it. When the sounds und the
shaking cease, he removes tbo handkerchief, showing nn Inscription written lu bold black letters ou tho paper
aud the pen not lu the Ink bottle, but
lying on the bottom of the cabinet. lie
then removes tbe paper from the Blate
and passes it around for examination,
when tlie writing is Immediately recognized as having been done with India
ink.
The txplanation of the trick Is simple. The writing was done in advance
by the performer, the fluid used being
n solution of sulphuric acid of tho purest quality. To make the solution 50
drops of the eonci titrated acid nre added to one ounce of filtered water. Writing doue with this solution Is invisible
until exposed to bent. When so exposed, ft comes out perfectly black,
looking exactly 1 ke dried India Ink.
The heat Is applied by means of an
electric current running over wire with
which *_e slate Is wound. The cords
by which the cabinet is suspended conceal copper wires, which conduct the
current to the slate. Black silk threads
suitably attached enable the performer
to make the sounds In the cabinet, to
cause the cabinet to shnke and to jerk
the pen out of the Ink bottle.
Several sheets of paper are prepared
lu advance, each with a different inscription, the performer telling one Inscription from nuother by secretly
marked plu pricks.

I once had a cat which always sat

had his napkin round his neck, and
his plate and some fish. Jle used

rung, so we began without him.

Health and Vitality
For the Old People.
Wasted muscles, shattered nerves and failing strength may
result from old age as well as from disease. As old age creeps
on vitality is lowered, the heart beats more slowly, the blood
becomes thin and watery and the power of resistance is less-
ened. It is the old people above all others who require the
new life and energy which comes with the use of Dr. Cha_e's
Nerve Food.
Scores and hundreds of old people depend on Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food to restore their exhausted nerve force and replace
their wasted tissues. It calms and quiets the nerves, gradually
and certainly enriches thc blood and builds up the system, and
makes old people feel again the thrill of new life and vigor in
their shrivelled arteries. From childhood to old age this famous
Food Cure is the greatest blessing which medical science has
bestowed on mankind.

Was iu the Clutch of Bright's Disease—Suffered All the Symptoms
of This Fearful Malady—But He
Took Dodd's Kidney Pills in Time
Ottawa, Oct. 28.—(Spue;ill)—A fortunate young man is Frank Char-
trand of this city, for by the merest
chance he wus saved from that modern curse so dreaded by doctors,
Bright's Disease, the incurable malady of the Kidneys.
The story of Mr.Ciiartrand's escape
from this dreadful disease is best
told in his own words :
" I had been greatly troubled by
my kidneys for two years, since having a dose of tho grip. 1 suffered
witli backache and I always felt
drowsy and very heavy in the limbs,
with frequent severe headaches, und
ofteuer still severe pains in the top
of my head which prevented me from
doing my work as I would like to do
it. Often my fingers and legs would
cramp and occasionally 1 felt pains

THE GREAT DISMAL SWAMP.
TREE  CULTURE.
In setting out nn orchard keep together
all of the same variety,
A dead limb is a source of disease, and
it shows lack of vitality in the tree.
Never crowd the fruit trees. Give
plenty uf room for nir and sunshine.
If the cherry tree is set in ordinarily
rich ground, it wil! not need fertilizing.
The willow, elm, poplar or locust should
never he planted tuo close to wells or
drains,
Rubbish of any sort should not he left
la the orchard, It harbors vermin and
insects.
A tree with an open bead is not as likely to be attacked with mildew as one that
is crowded.
Pruning when the tree is growing or in
leaf checks growth. A feeble tree should
never I e pruned after growth begins.
In taking up a tree for transplanting
the greatest care must he exercised to secure as ouch of the root system as possible.
Anything in the nature of lye will destroy the apple tree borer or the young
borer before it penetrates the hark very
far, but once well in tbe hark a wire must
be used.
Deep holes in planting a tree nre a disadvantage, especially in a clay subsoil. It
is not wise to hnve a tree stand in a well
from which the water will nut settle
away. The sail for trees needs to be well
drained.
Ail wounds on trees are the hotter for
being painted, tarred or covered with
Bome substance lo keep out water. Then
Ihe bark covers over the woand little by
liltle, and no rotting of the inner wood
takes place.

A   Region   st ru ni.'.,'   nnd   lnl*-r. itlnte,
Weird nnd Solitary.
The Great Dismal swamp is a region
strange und interesting, weird and solitary. It occupies a billowy plain some 40
miles in length by 25 miles in breadth
along the Atlantic seaboard, extending
from Suffolk, Va., in a southerly direction, well into the bounds of North Carolina.
Its deep shades, great stretches of
brake and its solitude make it a region
of interest. To the naturalist and sportsman it has much to offer. In its silent
fastnesses the black bear finds a home
admirably adapted to his protection and
in every way favorable to his increase.
Here amid the dense growth of underbrush and timber he may live in comparative safety, and there is perhaps no
locality in the whole eastern United
States ol like extent which can offer a
larger bear population than this great
morass. The white tailed deer is also an
abundant denizen of the swamp, frequenting th« elevated parts.
In addition to the deer and hears, there
Is a klg game feature of a rather unusual
nature. The swamp abounds in wild
cows. These animals, of a brown color
and somewhat smaller than the ordinary
cow, hnving for many years been under
the peculiar conditions of the swamp, until they ore nlmost completely specialized,
are extremely wild, They aro feralized
from the herds of the farms adjacent to
the swamp, ,id are the descendants of
cattle whic' many years back wondered
into the fa. tnesses and were lost to their
owners, finally becoming wild. Being no
longer recognized as property the sportsman may call game all that ho may have
the prowess to shoot.
Lake Drtimtnoud, jome ten miles from
Suffolk, Va,, is the only great body of
water in (he swamp. It is a beautiful
sheet of water, of an oval contour nnd
fringed with a heavy growth of timber,
mostly cypress, white cedar and black
gum. Its water Is of a dark color owing
to the decaying vegetation of the surrounding country, but is suitable to
drink, uud possesses the quality of renin ining pure longer than most other
water. For this reason it is often carried to sea by Bailors on long voyages.
Tho characteristic mammalian fauna is
of a semilropical nature as regards the
smaller forms, while there are many
tropica! plants. Of birds there are not
many kinds, prolhonotary, bonded and
Swainson's warblers and the Maryland
yellowthront being the principal smaller
forms. The trees, some of which are
primeval, are large und beautiful, while
there is a luxuriant growth of ferns an*
aquatic   plants.   Cane   grows   in   profu-

BABY'S ILLS.
Every Mother Should Be in a Posi-
1 ion to Promptly Kelievo the Minor Ailments of Her Little  Ones.
The baby who is always plump always 1ms a good appetite, always
has a clear eye and a rosy cheek,
and is always active and playful, is
the choicest treasure this life affords.
Tlie medicine whicli keep-' babies in
such a condition or which restores
them to it when they are ill Is certainly a priceless boon to humanity.
There are muny medicines whicli produce sleep, but their action upon the
child is similar to that Which whisky
or opium has upon a full grown man.
They deaden and stupefy aud are the
most injurious things which can bu
given  to children.
The only safe course is to use nature's remedies. Nature hus provided a vegetable cure for every ill. uml
hor remedies for children's disorders
are scientifically compounded in
Baby's Own Tablets. For diarrhoea,
constipation. colic, simple fever,
croup, irritation when teething, indigestion ami all the disoiders of
children so familiar to mothers, this
remedy is conceded by the medical
profession to be without an equal,
[ts effect is gentle, soothing, promptly curative ami never-failing. It will
save pain, anxiety, -doctor bills and
perhaps a life. All mothers who
have used Baby's Own Tablets for
their little ones speak of them in
terms of warmest praise. Airs. Ben.
Seward, Forfar, Out., says: "1 have
used Baby's Own Tablets and can
highly rccoimni'iid them to all mothers. My baby was cutting his teeth,
and was very cross when I lirst gave
them to him. They acted like magic;
he cut his teeth almost wilhout my
knowing it, and gave him such ease
that they proved a blessing both to
the child and myself. lie has not
been sick since 1 gave them to him,
and I would not. be without them in
the house." Baby's Own Tablets can
be procured nt, any druggist's, or

Even the harvester or mowing machine is left. In the field long after il

FREQUENTLY  KESULT  IN  A
BREAKDOWN OF HEALTH.
Headaches, Backaches, Di__!_ess,
Poor Appetite and Insomnia, the
Outcome—How to 'Avert These
Troubles.
From tho Review, Windsor, Ont.
Only those engaged in the teaching1
profession realize how mu.'h care,
worry and perplexity is met with
daily. It is therefore little wonder
that thoru are so many health
breakdowns, especially among young
ladies who follow this calling. Miss
Christine Pare, of Ojibway, Out., is
on; wbo has sniftered much in this respect. To a reporter' of the Windsor
Hoview, iMiss Pare said : For several years, while leaching school, 1
tt led several doctors and medicines,
but got no relief. I became so badly
run down that 1 thought possibly a
change oi employment would give me
relief. t gave up my school ami
tried other duties, but the result was
disappointing as the trouble .seemed
to have token a firm, hold upon inc.
The headaches grew more and more
severe, my appetite failed me, and I
was frequently compelled to take a
rest in order to overcome dizziness.
A friend advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink i'iils. I decided to try
a box, and before they were all used
1 found much relief. I continued taking the pills for some time longer,
every day gaining new health and
strength, and now I feel as well as
ever I did iu my life, and tun never
bother,d with tho old troubles. You
may say, therefore, that there is nothing f can recommend so highly as
Ur.  Williams' Pink Pills."
Young girls who are pule ami
weak, who suiter from backaches,
headaches, loss of appetite, palpitation of the heart, and other symptoms that overcome so many in
early womanhood, will find a certain
and speedy cure in Dr. Williams'
Pink I'iils. These pills make rich,
red blood, strengthen the nerves, and
give new lifo and vigor to the.whole
body. The genuine bear the full
name, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People on the wrapper around
every box. Sold by all dealers or by
mail post paid at 50 cents a .box or

Gentlemen: I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful eftectof y >.ir A-Uh.in.ei-t!, for thi cure of Asthma. My wife has been
afflicted with spasmodic asthna for the "prist 12 years. Having exhausted 111 y own
(•kill as well as that of many others, I chanced to see yonr sign upr»n your win-
bows on 130 street. New Vork. I at once obtained a hottle of asthmalene. My wife
commenced inking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. Alter u.sitig one bottle her asthma had disappeared and .he is entire!)
fiee from all symptoms. I feci that I can consistently recommend the medicine
to    all    who   are   afflicted   with   this    distressing   disease.    Yours    respectfully,
