Should be the object of each man.
To know all things that can be known
And reap alike as we have bowd.
To bow that seed which grows to be
Peace, Justice, Truth and Purity.

To Blay the savage, brutal part
That sticks tenacious to the heart.

And feel it parting from the soul.
To feel that every day is more
And better than the day before.

Was enabled to render assistance

They met again in England She
held a good position' at $500.00
a year, but he had a mansion in
lovely Lillooet District, and she
c.ould not always work. A pure
matter of business, it was; but
not well carried out. The home
at Alexandria appeared to her a
mere hovel ready to fall down,
and he was a corker to drink.
And so it goes.
The Deputy Attorney General,
paid a visit to Lillooet before returning to Victoria. He took
the opportunity of visiting Seton

j'not-1 beautiful view he ever saw.

The consumption of claret in Gttjat
Britain, which grew pretty steadily
after the French commercial treaty
nefptiato.-l by Mr. C'obden in 1861,
would seem to have received a check.
The importation of still wines from,
France hus fallen oft by 807„000 gnl-
lons. The sales of Burgundy, Sau-
terne and Chablis have not materially varied, and the deficit is entirely
attributable to the comparative neglect of claret. In spite of war in
the first five months of 1902 and
h: i taxation, there was an increase
in the consumption of champagne of
nearly 20,000 gallons. The declina
of claret has naturally been followed by an increase in the -drinking of
port. The importation of this wine
has increased by Stf.OOO gallon-, and
if Dr. Johnson's dictum be true that
claret is the drink for boys and
port wine for men, we ought, I suppose, says a London correspondent,
to rejoice at the change. All good
patriots will be glad to learn that
the- importation of German wines haa
fu'len off, and they will be equally
delighted to hear that there has been
a growth in the consumption of Australian wines of over 256,000 gallons.

Persistent headaches usually come from an
exhausted condition of the nervous system, and
can never be cured until nerve force is restored
by sueh treatment as Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Misa Lacbink Wells, St. Catharines, Ont.,
writes: " For three years I suffered agony with
nervous headaches, and
my nervous system waa
entirely run down.
Though I consulted sev
eral physicians, I got but
little relief. On theadvice

wonders for we and saved me many dollars in

In Canada, above all other countries, we have great need to encourage individuality, for r>ur system of
public education, however excellent,
tikes but little count of the individual, and from a. certain standpoint
wo are educating on a system which
tends to destroy anything- like strong
individuality. In fact, if'you take
the spirit which prevails in our
smaller towns and villages you will
find a positive resentment against
the man or woman who dares to
strike out in any line of his own. Go
into our large stores and you will
find one huge table covered with tho I
same form of hat, reproduced a thou- |

coats and jackets of the exact cut
and make and color; and all this is

of individuality and its right to assert itself in any line in life.    With

otherwise much gold would bave been
added to the output.
The ascertained value of gold produced
in Lillooet Division for 1904 is $23,057,
but undoubtedly the itinerant Chinese

iheir gold at Ashcroft or Lytton; which
is not estimated in the above amount.

Directors are Ouiadiatis. The
startling* statement is mnde that
100 dredges will one day exist-
between Lilkn.et and the C. I'. R.
Never ! The lenses will amalgamate, and the whole 50 miles be
scooped by twenty machines.
The first attempt at dredging*
was made in 1891. It was simply a pump, and was too small
Next, the dipper dredge, was
all right in still water ; but the
Fraser   would not  keep still.
The Suction Dredge worsed 0.
K. Sucked up all the gravel in
flue style, and left all the gold.
Then appeared1 the Battery
outfit. The gold-savers were no
good, and the Ubiquitous Chinaman made quintuple wages, by
Washing the tailings, (laundry ?)
Well, the Clam-shell machine
was a Scheme— It handled those
bothersome boulders, but they
kept the jaws open enough to let
the precious gravel out.
The New Zealand bucket rig
beats thein all, but must be varied to suit conditions, as is done
at Lillooet by the Iowa folks.
The river is said to-be leased a
distance of 110 miles below here,
but is open for location above,
from the bridge up.
No bedrock has yet been reached in this river. Gold is found
iu alternate streaks. First one
of pay, then a layer of chicken-
feed, or decomposed rock, then
sand &c until blue day is struck
at a depth of 35 or 40 feet, not
reached, however, by the scoops.,
under ordinary conditions ; but
this year the water will be lower
than in fifty years, and 15 feel
through that clay may be worked, and  bedrock   tested.
There will be great doings all
along the Fraser in August, and
some old miners say, tlie output
will rival 1858.
Experience would seem to indicate that leases are valuable in
inverse proportion to the swiftness, and depth of the water.

The Old Bath Hotel.
For nearly 150 years the old Bath
Hotol has been looked upon by generations of Londoners as one of the
mysteries which only the aristocratic
might penetrate. There is something-
forbidding in the words, painted on
the Piccadilly sk'e oi the house.
"Bath Hotel—for Families and Gent-*
lemon," and millions of people must
have looked upon the plain, dowdy
old corner building, with its coat of
dirty paint, and have fancied the interior to be, by contrast, a marvel of
But now, being doomed to destruction, the old place has been subjected daily to inspection by brokers,
and the auctioneer has sold its contents. And the famous Bath Hotel
stands revealed as a wretched jumble
of passages and rooms, devoid of attraction, nnd fit only for the houso-
breakor. Its floors have reached the
"•Witchbaok" stage. There are un-
siispected little steps, some up and
some down, into many of the rooms.
The old portable baths—in a Piccadilly Hotel!--emphasize the change
which has taken place between t.he
era of the Bath and the era of Clar-
idge's and the Carlton.
All over the West-end the "hotel de
luxe" is springing up. In Sloane
Slreet, tbe Oadogan, close by the
Hans Crescent, in Mount Street, the
Cobourg. in Kensington Gore, the
Be "Vere and Royal Palace Hotels,
nil tell the same tale. And thc middle-aged hotels in Albermarlo Street
and thereabout are blossoming into
a new and more luxuriant existence.
