LIQUOR DRINKERS CURED Easily, Salely, Absolutely.

There is an enligh'en.d aid now whicli takes bold of a man instantlv.

antl marvelous. While at this pi.int the cure like only begun, llie en
conragement is eo great that probably no medical w>nk tqu-la ibis in
eatibfactiou to a patient.
Wiib this help against the drink )iab\t any mar. who want-* to lift from
Ids life tbe handicap of liquor using cau do to wfth immediate re- bit's.
Tnis guaranteed treatment is within iear.li of all. Convenient termi tan
be arranged satisfactory to any one wbo is at all na onable, tbou~h, as
all people understand, it docs c«t rom) are with the wo tide., quack
cures ad vert i«ed at so much per package, or "Free", etc. It i« a differet t
mailer from all this to perfect a tour e of thorough. - pecial, personal
treatment that will really do tbe work and cure forever. It in a .erious
undertaking ami requites a high form of scientific professional w irk. All
the different kind* of cases are li nulled tinder guaranteed results. Only
■kill tbat ie developed to tbe biglidst can do in. Only professional fees
can pay for tbe time it requires, though they are made moderate end convenient for anybody. The n etbods of practice used in tbis work has cost
years of time, vast study antl expensive experiments. The originator, Dr.
Wi'liam H. Saunders, bail attracted wiile notice for liis works on Neivous
diseases long before perfecting tbis treatment. And mil nothing hut care
and personal attention to cases today make* it possible fo' him io accomplish the absolu'c cures which be guarantees. _o the reader will see
ll.is treatment means thorough scientific, professional attend*n. Uut it
also means results tbat are absolutely- certain. The splendid first effects
on a man are alone worth the entire cost of treatment.
This treatment can be given WITH or WITHOUT tbe knowledge of
tbe patient and can be placed in any of bis foods or liquids Lhat he utes,
and beini; colorless ant) tasteless, it does its work so silently and quickly
tbat the drunkard is reclaimed even against his will anil wi bout his
knowledge and co-operation. The wife mated for rears to a husband addicted to Ibis curse will wonder if curing her husband by her own efforts
can be true. "Is il possible that there is ench a glorious opportunity?"
.he will ask. And thousands of wives wbo bave put it to Ibe test and rejoice in the reclamation of 'heir spouses wbo seemed lost to all sense of
self-respect, generosity and manliness will trumpet out to the world,
"Yes, ir is true". Onr treatment is purely vegetable, contains no narcotics, opiates, poisons or mineials. We u .e no hypodermic Injec'ion of gold,
nor any dangerous compound. It can be taken at hnne without nny loss
or detention from business. It stimulates the nervous aystem at once,
incteaees tbe appetite, and affords perfect rest at night. It acts directly
upon ibe stomach, builds up the whole system, eliminates all trace of liquor from thc body ami leaves the patient in the same condition as if liquor
had never been taken.

husband is lhe worst case in tbe community, we are more anxious to cure

The Somali camels contrasted with

They.«vldom injure anyone. In moving about the camp it night one

had experience of a vicious camel in
Somaliliind. Even when undergoing
filing operations they rarely bile,
although the head is lift free. This
accommodating disposition is attii'o-
utahle greatly to the manner in
which they arc treated by the natives, who, though rather cruel to
their ponies, never ill use a camel.
Many Somali.? are utterly ignorant

a writer in The Brooklyn
Eagle The camel is everywhere
in the land. He is the great means
of transport and is given in payment,
for wives and in settlement of the
incessant blood feuds which render
peaceful village and town life almost
unknown in *he interior.
As the troops make their way inland cuiious native villages formed
of little huts of bent- sticks covered
with camel mats, and protected all
round with a fence of cut thorn trees
laid side by fide, will at first ibe

milk obtainable at these is very refreshing on the long marches. Tho
men of Somnlitand use a curious
white clay found in various parts of
the country to dab on their heads,
which makes thein look like bla<«k

and the married women theirs in a

country. The tail, light-skinned,
handsome, lithe Somali chief with
his spear and onyx-skin circular target is a curious contrast to tho
strong, dark Midgaan, with his bow
and wooden 'quiver of little poisoned
arrows, which are deadly enough to
kill an elephant in three hours. Tho
former is a great believer in charms
and horoscopes, and generally wears
an amulet in the form of a verse of
the Koran strapped to his arm or
neck. He loves a draught of the
melted fat of a sheep's tail, and as
long as he has plenty of "ghee," or
clarified butter, with his lice and
dates, he is happy. The latter is
simply a barbarian and prefers meat
more or less raw. The Somali ponies are wonderfully good and hardy
little animals, but are very badly
treated by their owners. They are
much superior to the Arab for use in
Somnliland, as they do well on the
grass there and require no grain,
which is unobtainable in the interior
until you get very far inland.

The resignation of Dr. Sihree Clarke
as president of the \\Vsi Lillooel L beral
Association, and his alienation from tbe
Liberal pa»-ty, will be a surprise to some
of his friends, but not to those mort in-
limale with the doctor's view eon (referential trade ami kindred topics. He bids
leave of his Liberal friends in the following words:
June 20, 1903.
To The Members of the Lillooet Liberal Association:
I hereby tender uiy resignation as Member and President of The
Lillooet Lioeral.Association.
Itis known to some of my friends that,
for many years, 1 have been dissatisfied
.with the policy of the Liberal I'arty in
regard to several matters whicli are, in
my opinion, of vital importance, more
especially that part of it which deals
with protection to Canadian industries,
and. the safeguarding of Cm/.dian interests generally. We have arrived at a
critical period in our history. Momentous questions are pressing fir answer;
and as recent authoritative utterames
give me no hope that different counsels
will prevail in Liberal high places, I
deem it best to leave "tbe house of my
friends". It is a painful wrench, but
unavoidable. Whether the alienation
be temporary or permanent, what new
tie~ and affiliations may result, time aud
events must determine.
To argue my position in extenso would
be manifestly out of place intbiscon-
r.-ction, but so much by way of explanation is perhaps due to you and to myself.
Thanking yon for the honor you have
conferred on ine, and wishing you individually, all happiness and prosperity,
I am,
Yours Sincerely,
Sibree Clarke.

TliM.fi opportunity is yiven to
us now.
We would i-o-ns~.Mt.rti the righl
of every voter to give his vole
iiiiti-.-ininiflt.tl liy tht, fear tlmt,
should lie find himself nfter the
election in the minority ehi.su, he
will be the liutt of unkindly net-
ion from the winning-Hide. Whatever hns crenteil this fear is a
question for various opinion.
Iml: that the fear of being "spot-
led" exists in soineqiiailers. is
niiliter of fact, antl thesu'.ijech of
almost daily comment.
One of the most unsatisfactory
features iu the late Provincial
Legislature was the distaste, evidenced by many of the members,
for nn appeal to the people. It
seemed as if many of the member., were disinclined, if not afraid,
lo face those who had reposed
confidence in them, and appoint-j
ed thein to represent their inter-
esls til, Victoria. The hist thing
tlmt some representative, seem
to think is that they are iu duty
bound to represent till their constituents—not only those who
worked hard to put thein into
office, but also those who worked I.mil to keep them out. The
hit ter chiss are, doubtless,, just
as loyal ft) the interests of I he
Province as t he former.
"No government, however well
disposed, will ntaiiy lime be able
to keep the expenditure of the
country within moderate bounds,
unless if is supported by t he constant vigilance of piiblieopinion.
You will ask nie perhaps, why is
this? I will tellyou ina few words.
It is because individuals; ami
knots, ami groups, aud even
classes of men, have fi constant,
quick, unsleeping interest iu feeding themselves upon lhe produce
of t he public industry. The nah
ui-iil counterpoise to that perfectly natural tendency on the part
of individuals and classes is iu
l he vigilance of the public inind.
If is by the public .sentiment, operating vigorously on the one
hand, ami by the iiufiir.il tendency of public servants, and professional men, nnd parfiouh-r
classes on the other, to struggle
iu particular for their own interests, tlmt the equilibrium—a fair
and just balance—is maintained.
Hut if the public go to sleep, tbe
other power never goes to sleep.
Ou the contrary it watches for
its opp'jituuit.y."

Iritics    of    Mr.   Ualfour's  piodet'CB-
Ir,   Lord  Salisbury,   that  most     of
\o illnesses by which ha was a I Hi t-
atirl they we:c numerous, we e so
lined  as to be of servi e to the na-
• on.    If there was a crisis in   whi.h
reat Britain wished to dday action

fall ill, and his physi ians to in-
t on immediate re&t.    At the pro-
3r time Lord   Salisbury would    rc-
jver,  when  Gieat Britain  would bo
leai'd from.       Hen o   the "diploma-
fc" illnesses of Lord Salisbury have
Ion a   place  in    history.     Yet,     in
tct,  the late Premier    suffered    for.
|iany years, and finally letiied from
~o same   cai:se    thut menaces    Mr.
I'alfour's    health,  namely, poor    as-
imilation of food,    it is the penalty
overwork  and wo' ry,  and a wai'n-

Tn all human probability, Mr. Bal-
>ur,  who  is    only  in his    fifty-fifth
ar, has yet a long ofiicial    career
cad of him.   if he is not st:i. ing-
lobist, he is a man cf gieat ner-
)iis energy  aid a.ti.e hal.i.s.    His
srsonality    is   decidedly   interesting
|tnd attractive.

.. . .i     .u-liamentary Leader.
In the Horse of Commors Mr. Eal-
fo'.if has shown a remar. able capa-
Itity for leadership and dhe ticn,
(hough if one we: e to make the mis-
tr.l-p of judging from appeal antes,
little would l.e ox. o; ted from him.
Theie he sits on the Ministerial
bench, in tbe midst of his colleagues,
the very picture of indolence and
listletsncs's. His favorite posture
has been described as on:.1 of ''spineless prostration," and thc do -trip- j
ticn, if overdrawn, is not in a. t. I
With head sin; on chest, aims dangling lifelessly at his side, and feet
bini'od against the edge of thc table,
he suggests to tie casual obscr.er a
man  in a state of collapse.
But mark the transformation when !
.12 springs forward to meet    an opponent!       Now he is all energy,    of
that intense nervous kind that beats
down all resistance.    H'hi'e    he   ges- :
ti'iilates pa<s'onatcly, and his   voicu i
vibrates with feeling, he does not for j
a moment lose that perfect mental
control that enables him to dive- I,
hi.s retorts and his logic with unerring accuracy. Therein lies the ihief
power of the man. Whatever he at-
term ts he dors with all his might.
When the bo't has been driven homo
he again collapses, and recuperates
for the next gt'eut elToit.
Unl.uili-.-i.ilau tin lilts.
Most people judge a man from   the
surface.   If he is dull, methodical, or- j
derly, and careful of insignificant de-
talis, he is reputed to be    thorough
and businessli e.    Yet in the major- |
ity of cases method, however    valu-I
able it may be, ii resorttd to    as a
prop to the mind.    In th_ matter of
method and arrangement Mr. Balfour J
is the most unbusinesslike leader the
House of Commons has ever seen- He
is riot bound b.v the necessities that
would    surround   an    otdinary man.!
His bt'illlan-y needs no scrap-book to
feed upon.       The secret of Mr.   Balfour's hold upon the House has been
summed up in these words:   "He is a
gentleman   to the   finger tips—cultivated,    refined.,  well bred,    unobtrusive,  superior,    fascinating."      After
all  i'o'ii Bull  dearly 11 es a   gentleman,    anil    Mr. Balfour conies    very
near to his  ideal.
Ireland Made Italfour.
Tt was its  Chief Secretary for Tro-
Innd from  1887   to  1891   that     A.r.
'•■    »he     reputation    on
eve. may bo said of Mr. ' Ba'fo-i-'s
administration of Ireland, it cannot
be asset td that for a moment he
showed weakness. His etnt'get'e and
iinflitub'ng defence of the Irish officials against, all at ael s i_ th:;
House established his piowess as a
PatliaminUn ian.
As Proniier it was prcditod that
he would be lot in the shadow of
Mr. Chamberlain, Mr. Balfour, how-
eve ', has not suffered, but Ins rather bet n hell ed by the great strength
of his leading colleague, liis advance
did not aiousc jealousy, or antagonism, but instead enthusiastic support on thc part of the man whom
many exix.-tod to succeed to the Premiership, Already the Cove: nnc.it
undo- its new pilot has been safely
navigated through one of the most
dangerous storms aroused by the
Education Bill that England hos
witnessed in re ent times. Its Tre-
mir"\    Mr.    Balfour,  has    .cored    a
■ucce.s whi h it is to be hoped he
will long lhe to en.'oy.
Mr. Balfour is not in politis for
money. He has a pri*ate income of
about §100,000 a year. He is a
close student of litei attire and the
arts. For one picture, "lhe Leteiul
of the Brier Hose,*' which Mr. Ba)
four purchased from Hit no—Jones, he
paid $75,000. Scasic no's | .cents
him from traveling abroad. The secret of Mr. Balfour's ba haloihood
has ne er been ie.ealed. t is said
that at one time he offered his heart
and hand to a captivating lady, who
did not accept the hono , and henco-
.forward, though an a'dmi er of the
sex, he has been invulnerable to Cupid's arrows.
Much Waste Laud uu Which Wood* Could
* ,e...
!     The    Departmental  Committee   on
British Forestry   has is.,ued ils    re-
| port.    It remarks on the fact    that
there    are some twenty-one    mill.on
acres of was.e land,  a h:rfae propor-
j tion of which  might   proiitably     bo
afforested,    .t recommends   that two
areas for practical demonstrate, of
not   under  two    ..nd  not    over   ten
1 thousand  acres,   s;iot.ltl   te    acquired
by the State;   that lectin ers on forestry be appointed in come t;on with
the universities;  and that   the   agricultural    colleges  make thc    sub-o t
part of their course.     The   proposal
to set apart experimental   areas   is
interesting,   and    we   are rather   of
opinion     that  such    an    experiment
I would  not make Alice Holt—one   of
; the areas suggested—much   lesj profitable than it is to-duy.     Some, indeed  we may  say  all,    the other recommendations    sti ike    us   as   pious
and    quits   ptoper.      Unhappily    we
doubt gravely whether   this   entirely
well-meaning    report    will    result iii
any considerable    planting    and   replanting operations on  the part    of
thc owner of land.    The fall    in tho
value of timber and underwood   has
been great during the last quarter of
a century.    Oak, fer instance, to-day
is hardly worth the it ipping, though
the   price of the wood its.-If has been
lower in the past.    Larch is one of
the    few    timber trees    which    tho
landowner finds he can plant on poor
land with something lil c assured profit.      The clause in tic icport referring to the estate duties may remind
us   of the   undoubted fact    that   Sir
William      Hai court's    Finance    Aet
must bo held responsible for t'ie fall
of a great deal of timber in   English
wootls which is not lil ely   to be replaced In the near future.    Too often
it must be the only way to   pay off
the duties.-—Satut day Reviow.
Sketch b.v J.  -wilt McNeill.
Events reproduces the following de-
~C iption of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain
from a  sketch  by  .1.  Swift McNeill,
an Irish Nationalist M. P.:     "He is
of medium    size,  .somewhat   slightly
built, with legs too short in proportion to his frame.    It i3 s.iid by physiologists that the ft c.   of every human   being    when   closely   strutiti el
resembles  some  animal,   and,   applying this test to Mr.  Chumbeilain,  ]
think his face bonis a by  no means
far-fetched li! one: s to Ue face   of   a
fox.   This resemblance is ie.y sinking when    one  looks    at his profile.
He has a   high forehead,    a   Woman
nose, well-chiselled featines, a mouth
expressive   of   greet   ditoiminatian,
and large,  dark  blue,  luminois   and
somewhat     cruel   eyes.       His   face,
which seems pallid iu ils    color at a
distance, has, when one looks at   it
closely,    an    unhealthy yellow    hie.
which perhaps is made mere strikingly apparent by  the coal-black   color
of his thick and luxuriant hair.    As
.one looks at Mr. Chainbei lain casually, ore would guess his   age    to   be
about livc antl fifty, but ts a matter
of fact in 1676 Mr, Chainbei lain wns
a man of   the mature ago ol*    forty
years,    who  had  already  enjoyed   a
civic career of great distinction, and
had made a large fortune in trade." |
Lillooet District
Attracting Attention
on account of
i. Its Fraser River Placers.
As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
ar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining* ground is being worked with profit at
the present time.
A company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $350,030, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.-^
andi.i.son laic.* and Buinai-UiVEi- mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of territory that remain unprospected.
3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds^^^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, hear, deer, and all kinds of largo and small game
abound. Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. Its Salubrious Climate.<^^>
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit may be grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
the gardens of the town
Nearest Uailway towns are ashcroft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific railway.
