A large portion of the revenue of the
province goos towards educational purposes it has been under consideration by
the government for some time to overcome the heavy drain on the provincial
treasury and keep up the high standard
of tba schools. The minister of education lias now a bill before the bouse to
come up in a few days. It is the intention to increase the revenue or poll tax
from :'* to $5 and the whole to go into
tlio provincial treasury and be devoted
to educational purposes. Tbe cities in
rteurn will receive a per capita grant
per annum bused on the average attendance, and shall be paid quarterly by
the minister of finance. Trustees in
cities it will be necessary to have property qualifications before eligible for
the board. In the rural districts there
are very little changes in connection
with the running of the schools. In
Borne parts of tho province there is considerable kick about tlie bill, as tbey
seem to think it il directed at the working man, not taking into consideration
that all pay this tax. In the cilies some
of tho sections do not suit and their objections arc therefore forthcoming.
There will likely be modifications in the
bill before finally passed although the
principles will be about the same as at
present brought forward. It is necessary
that something should be dons in this
matter, and the bill Hon. Ur, Prentice
has brought iu looks feasible, as the few
dollars a year paid into tbe provincial
treasury for the privilege of living in
this country is not exhorbitant and can
cell be afforded by all.
The question of titles for property in
Lillooet iB a burning question and nine
out of ten persons do not know whether
they own what they have or not. During the paBt week alloys and private
thoroughfares and vacant lots have been
closod up and fenced, so that parties
owning them will be sure that they have
some hold on them. Tiie matter of titles
and ownership of town lots should be
settled ae the present state of
affairs causes trouble and the residents
are in a stale of uncertainly. All through
the interior their are old records of land
made years ago and the land registry
oliice knows nothing about them. It
would be a good Idea for the government
to cull in all the old books from their
offices and straighten up the laud  bus;-,
ntsssr the province.
If h man owns a lot in this section,
pays tax taxes, whether it is fenced or
not mils-tie he bas actual possession, lie
stands   chances   of   having   it jumped,

If a properly owner allows the public to
use his land for a short cut or thoroughfare he will be compelled to lose eame for
his good nature in allowing the public to
use it.

The town of Lillooet had for a ntimber of years been euppiied with water
through an open ditch. About two
years ago through the efforts of Mr. S.
A. Macfarlane an appropriation was asked for and granted to purchase pipe for
the bringing in of water to the town,
rhich was done, and the residents have
since had the water system carefully taken
care oft with no cost, besides receiving
abundance of pure fresh water. Mr.
Macfarlane'sdisinterested efforts are appreciated by the people of Lillooet as
the following will show:
Deaii Macfarlane:   On behalf of the
residents of Lillooet the undersigned beg
you to act ept this watch as a slight token
oi their   appreciation of your untiring
and disinterested efforts  in connection
with the water supply of the town.

MoBsrs. D. Hurley, J. S. Bell, Dr. San

Gentlemen: There is nothing so difficult as to properly acknowledge tbe receipt of a very great kindness. It is impossible for me to adequately convey to
you my thanks for the very tangible evidence of your good will, as manifested
in the presentation of a valuable and
useful article—and also in tbe very kind
letter whi_i accompanied the same.
If, as you generously state, I have-
in my imperfect way—heen of some service in cr nection with the town water
system, I can assure you that Buch services had been fully repaid in the knowledge that the people -vere furnished
with abountiful supply of tbat necessary
liquid without cost.
It will be my earnest effort to cooperate with the people in every wav for
acontinuance of a free and untaxable
water supply and the preservation to the
trwn of this benefit.
Again thanking you for your valuable
and beautiful gift, believe me most sincerely 8. A. Mackahlanb.

This week the Toronto-Lillooet Gold
Reefs company's property was visited by
W. 0. Fox of Toronto, one of the directors, and Mr. John Dern, and Mr. Lege,
of Salt Lake City, Utah, After spending a few days at mill they returned to
town and left Wednesday to spend a few
weeks at the coast cities.
Tbe cyanide mill at the company's
property started up full blast on the 4th
of this month and is averaging about
forty toes daily.
At the mine every tliinglis looking well
and the ore is being taken out iu large
quantity to supply the mill.
Mr. Dern who is a practical mining
and will man, in speaking ol the works
said it was one of best constructed and
nice a running mill as he has seen.
Col. KiveB, the superintendent, is
working away and is doing his utmost
to keep the mill running full time, and
with the abundance of ore at the mine
the returns from the seasons work will
be good. The company have nearly 40
men employed.

fn 1900 this was certainly not the case, for the
mine companies, in order to reduce the amount
uf their mineral tax payments, based their returns of values on usually conservative lines,
fn conclusion it may be noted that as compared with Ontario, onr province's mineral
output of 1900 shows that 'he industry with us
makes a yield of nearly $7,200,000 ra e than
does in the eastern provinces.
The School   BUI.
The new School Bill, which was considered
at the caucus of thc government held on Tuesday, was brought down last Friday. It will
not come up for a day or two until the bill to
increase the revenue is presented by the Hon.
Mr. Turner, minister of finance, then the two
bills will be read together. The feature of
the hill is that the revenue tax-, known amonj
unmarried men as the poll-tax, will be increas-
from $3 to $5. The government may not
have acted along the suggestion of the member for Southeast Kootenay, E. C. Smith, but
the othei day he said three dollars was all too
small a fee for lhe privilege in this great and
glorious province. But the new provision of
an increase is intended to work in with the
new School Act. There has besides been
some disagreement in thc matter of collection
between the cities and the Government, and
the arrangement which it is proposed to adopt
that the whole amount is to be collected by
the Provincial Government will do away with
the cause of this. To offset tlie possibility o
any complaint from the cities an increased per
capita grant will be made. Then too, the
School Act will provide that $300 a year be
granted to each teacher in the high schools,
which is entiroly new. Section 35 of the old
act has been repealed and Ihe following has
been subsituted: A per capita grant of $13
V" for cities of the first class, $15 for cities of the
\J second class, and $20 for cities of the third
ass and towns of the  third class per annum,
A return presented by lion. Mr. Sifton to parliament, IaBt Friday, contain!

February, transferring to the commissioner of the Yukon the right to issue
permits for the importation of liquors
and intoxicants. Permits will not be
given to any one who has not had previously a wholesale licence, which will
cost $2,000. Permits will cost $10 each
and the lee will be $2 per gallon to bring
liquor in.

Our mineral oul put of last year showed a
generally satisfactory advance. Thus the provincial minister of mines has in a summarised
estimate recently made given the output of
igoo as representing a total value of $16,-407,
945, as against a like worth of $12,393,131 in
1890, a gain of 32 per cent. Of this aggregate
the total metal yield advanced from $8,096,-
504 to $11,340,756, and showed an increase
of 40 per cent. Again of metal pn.ducts the
yield of those got by lode mining advanced 49
percent, the output of $6,751,604 in 1899,
rising to $10,062,032 in 1900. Descending to
further details the gold output, despite a
imall decline in placer yield rose by 21 per
cent., the yield being $2,857,573 in value in
1899, and $3,461,087 in 1900.
Silver', increase was much greater than that
of gold, representing 38 per cent., the figures
being respectively $1,663,708 and $2,295,097.
The copper output meanwhile increased by
I9j per cent., growing from $1,351,453 to
Lead, however, showed the greatest ad-
VflUce of all, considerably more than trebling
its output, the figures for that metal being
$878,870 in 1S99, and $2,699,557 in 1900, a
suggestive circumstance, as revealing the necessity that there for silver-lead smelting and
refining developments. The province's coal
and coke yield gained hy 25 per cent, in 1900,
rising from $4,053,651 to $5,066,889:
Placer gold alone showed a faliing off, a
fact which is partly explained, as the minister
of mines stated, hy an exodus of placer work-
ersjto Nome. It is also explained by the fact
thai apart from the Carihoo Consolidated Hydraulic company's yield, the hydraulicing companies of Cariboo last year in general disappointed their own hopes of immediate gold
production on any considerable scale. Then,
too, Atlin yielded less placer gold than was
anticipated. However, both as regards Cariboo and Atlin, we may as a result of hydra ir
licing, expect to see thc slight decline of last
year in placer gold replaced hy a gain of considerably more than the 5 per cent of temporary decline.
Thc cual and coke output of this year is also
certain to show a very large gain indeed on
that of 1900, as a result chiefly of what is now
happening as regards East Kootenay colliery
Another point worth noting is that the
metal yield of 1900 showed a really greater
advance of values than the returns indicate,
for in 1889 the estimates of Rossland and
some other districts were based on overrating.

Two years before the outbreak of the
Franco-Prussian war and tbe downfall
of the last Napoleon an American
liiinied James Birney landed In Paris
from New York. He was what might
lie called a general utility man. He
bud been a small merchant In Michigan, a bookkeeper In Ohio, a manufacturer In Indiana and an editor in Iowa.
He wns n good nattired, easy going
tiiiin, taking life as be found it and
making no kicks. If he got a dollar
abend, be would find some new excuse
to get rid of It; If he was behind the
game, bis creditors would bave to extend bis account Nobody called lilm
smart, but everybody said he had a
strong fund of humor and philosophy.
When a man lu Cincinnati Invented
a bullet proof vest, Mr. lilrney somehow got hold of the European ageucy—
thnt is, lie went to Paris at least to
bring tbe patent directly to the attention of the French emperor, wbo was
always on the lookout for military novelties. The American's cheek and persistency secured him an audience after
weeks of red tnpe. He bad Insisted
that be would uot deal wltb the miuls-
tor of war or any other olliclal and was
at Inst granted an audience with the
emperor, it wns in the war office, aud
several cabinet officials were present
A musket was lying on a table, and
Napoleon greeted tlie agent with:
"Well, sir, what about this bullet
proof vestV"
"1 have It here, your majesty," was
tlie reply as the vest was held up to
"Put It on."
"With pleasure."
"Now go to the farther nnd of the
"Certainly, your majesty." '
"Now, sir," continued the emperor as
he lifted up the musket, "1 am going to
tire at your breast Are you willing to
tnke tlie chancesV"
"Fire away!" was tbe reply.
The emperor fired, and although the
bullet did not penetrate the shield the
force of It knocked Birney bend over
heels and put him out of It for the next
ten minutes. While it was decided that
the vest was not a success, the American's nerve exeitetl such admiration
thut be was given u handsome present
In ensh and graciously dismissed. He
Seemed to want to say something to
the emperor before he left the room,
but did not hnve opportunity. Early
the next day, however, lie bobbed up at
the war office for nn Interview wiib the
"It is no use," snid thai official as be
gave lilm a minute. "The emperor has
decided that he will not buy the vest"
"I knew that yesterday, of course,"
replied lilrney. "I nm not here about
the vest, but altogether another thing.
The fact Is 1 do not like Napoleon's
nose, and I want to improve It."
"Mon Illcu, man, but what do you
say!" exclaimed the minister as be
sprang to bis feet
"I say that the emperor's nose Is off
and thnt I enn Improve It 1 wanted to
tell liitn so the other day, but be hustled me out too quick. Cnn you bring
about aiiother Interview?"
"The emperor's nose? Yon sny It Is
wrong? You say you can fix It? Man,
What mean you?"
"I mean Just what 1 sny," calmly replied Birney. "1 am not n surgeon, hut
several years ago I Invented n little attachment to cure a badly shaped nose.
II bus been tried In half n dozen cases
nml proved Itself n big success. 1
brought one ulong witli me. nol knowing what I might run up against, and
If vou will give the emperor n lilnt"-
"Mon Well! Moll Hiell!" gasped the
minister ns he looked nt tlie American
with  wonder and  terror  In  liis eyes.
"Then you hnve gone crazy! You nre
out of your mind. You know not whnt
you say."
"1 am all right from bead to heel, my
dear sir. and I can't understand your
agitation. What's the matter with my
scheme for improving Napoleon's
Tbe minister rang his bell with nervous band, and a minute later Birney
was out ou tbe sidewalk with a flea in
his ear—thnt is. be was told to tnke
himself off or he would be locked up as
nn iusane person, it was rather a setback for bini. and Vt took him a dny or
two to get over it, but he finally came
up smiling. If tbe minister would not
help him out. there were other officials
who would. Ifc tried two or three of
them, with tbe result thnt he was
eventually haled before the chief of
police. That offlclnl probably sized him
up correctly, for lie snhl to him:
"You do not realize what you nre
doing. Don't you understand that you
can lie sent to prison for Ibis? You do
not appear to have lost your mind, and
you are no fool, and tlie best thing you
enn do Is to get out of Paris at once."
"But what Is the crime?" argued
Birney. "All I have done Is to say
that I can Improve on tbe emperor's
nose. Can a man be sent to prison in
France for that?"
"He can. sir, ns I wish to mnke you
understand. You must not talk this
way. You have made trouble for yourself, and yon had best get a wny ns
soon as possible. Should the emperor
himself hear of your insulting words
you would be sent to some fortress for
live often yenrs."
"Shoo! You don't say! But you
Frenchmen are queer people! Well. I
don't want to leave Paris for a few
days yet, but I'll keep still about Napoleon's nose. 1 had no idea he was so
techy about it. Not another word from
me if that's tlie way things are."
The chief added another warning,
though be saw the humor of the thing
anil smiled behind his mask. Birney
might stay on for n few days, but he
must keep that nose attachment of his
In the background and his tongue between his teeth. He went out of tbe
police office meaning to do it but
scarcely 2-1 hours bad pnssed away
when he accidentally met n French
doctor who could speak English fairly
well. Birney was naturally asked why
lie had visited Paris, and of course be
told of tbe bullet proof vest. Having
got stinted, he couldn't stop there.
"Say. do you know I could Ilx the
emperor's nose In less thnn * month?"
he remarked In n burst of confidence.
"Yes, sir. I could Improve that smeller of his at least Tit) per cent in three or
four weeks, and I wouldn't charge s
cent either."
"Tbe emperor's nose!" gasped the
doctor. "But what alls the emperor's
"Out of plumb, sir. and no excuse for
It All I want is three weeks' time.
Can't you get me an audience with
"Tlie devlll Why, mr.j, you are in
suiting tbe emperor! You ought to be
locked up!"
"Oh, come now!" laughed Birney in a
protesting way. "1 never saw such
people before. Can't the emperor's
nose tie out of plumb ns well ns any
other man's?"
The doctor left blm without even a
cold bow and probably went to the
police, as lilrney was arrested an hour
later. According to his story, he was
sent to prison without a trial and de
milled for a full ycHr. Then be was
taken out one day and conveyed to tlie
war office and Into the presence of Na
"Sir," said tbe emperor after glaring
nt him for awhile, "is my nose out of
"It is ns plumb as a plumbct," was
the ready reply.
"Does It need any fixing over?"
"Not n Ox."
"And how Is it with yours?"
"it's out of Joint, your majesty, but 1
think 1 could follow It out of France."
"Then you may try."
And try be did, and his nose led him
back to the land of the free without
any lingering on the road.

Twenty-five or more years ago, when
Art was uot spelled with a capital letter,

not adorned with specimens of the alleged art of more or less Incompetent steel
engravers. "The Pilgrim's Progress,"
"The Guardian Angel," diminutive and
Irritating children offering lonvrs of
bread to preposterously grateful and ragged "poor"—such works of urt as these
adorned the walls i*f 00 out of every 100
houses, it was depressing from an aitis-
tic point of view, hut this feeble imitation testified to the supremacy of the noble art of steel engraving, of which the
masters were nn inspired few. The en-
graved atrocities have vanished from the
walls, aiul along with them the trulj
beautiful specimens of tlio art have
grown to he less nnd less highly prized,
except by the connoisseur. Steel engraving lias come to lie oue of lhc lost arts.
In n few years nil its followers will have
passed away, and the good engravings
now extant will even more distinctly become merely interesting subjects for the
collector rather thnn for the admiration
of the many.
Steel engravers have not yet found
their occupation gone entirely. The old
nun wiio once engraved pictures of ambitious size and scope uow toil—such est
thein as aro left—over the details of
lunik notes. It is the one living brunch of
steel engraving, one worthy enough in its
wny, for the work is benutlful, but oue
which will never win the ndinirntion once
showered on huge copies of great pictures. To the general public Ihe tijrure
rather than the design of n hank note is
of .Importance, mil few stop to tune the
delicnty of tlie lines, tlie grace of Ihe
composition, all engraved, very likely,
witli loving care by some old man whose
pride in his art remains, although lhe
glory of It hns gone foreVcr.
This brunch of engraving has reached
a higher development in America than
anywhere else. The delicacy of the work
is sometimes extreme and uives an idea
of the standing of the artist in the days
when his skill was put to higher uses.
The old men ate growing fewer every
year. For lhe special profession or banknote engraving young men are being
trained lo take their places, hut for the
broader work, as it used to be carried ou,
there will he no successors. The old engravers nre the last of their ancient
guild, and with them the art of steel engraving ns it relates to Inrge picture!
will die.
Uut, nnrrow as is their field, it is interesting to fiiifl thnt these old artists recognize one another's work by the minute
detnils of Ihe bnnk note or stcek certificate. Much of it is done by geometric
l.uhe In the hands of apprentices, hut thc
touch of the true nrtist is perceptible to
his brother, jusi ns it is possible to delect in n moment the style of n painter.
There is always infinite pnthos nbout
the iden of the world's losing anything
beautiful it once possessed. It does nol
matter whether or uot there has come
something to take ils place—the sadness
is there. As a matter of fact steel engraving has passed away because some-
thing as satisfactory and far cheaper
has been discovered. Photography ia
a good enough substitute for the iuferior
work which was so familiar n quarter of
a century ago. Tbe rage fur etching
also helped lo overthrow sieel eugriiv-
ing from its position of security, but the
downfall was brought about chiefly hy
the Invention or photography. The platen
engraved by really good workcr-s cost a
large sum of money and nu amount of
time disproportionate even to lhe high
price. Mullet- spent sii yenrs iu perfect'
lug liis "Sistine Madonna," nud the price
paid for it rewarded his time nt a less
rale than thnt of nu ordinary dry goods
elerk of today.
Such works were, indeed, a labor of
love, nad to lliem there nttnehed a seuli-
nientnl Interest thut enn never cling
around the photograph which hns driven
the engraving from the field. An ordinary photographer—that is, u man with no
special artistic inspiration—enn produce
the beautiful work which hangs in the
place of I hose once honored copies of
grent pictures. Of course, steel engravings arc still bought and sold and still
hang in the houses ot artistic people, hut
those who buy nro iu the main collectors,
The general public no longer looks nt the
old time favorites. To take up some volume of a good art journal of 25 years ngo
and compare it with recent issues is to
meet a forcible reminder of the wny in
which taste has chaugeil. A quarter of a
century ogo the pages of such volumes
were   filled   with   steel   engravings   aud
nothing else, while now dashing color effects, daring "studies" In charcoal, fill
page after page.
The position in the art world of the
great engravers is quite beyond dispute.
There Is no question of whether or not
there is geueral interest in their manner
of work.
The value of their enginvings is fixed,
and their service to the world is beyond
question. Were il not for Morghen we
might hnve hnd no idea of the beauty of
Leonardo da Vinci's "I.nst Supper." The
I mm- spirit of art bus been nobly preserved l.y such engravers nnd their followers,
nnd there is uhout their work a charm
which fashion cannot nffect.
But these works are too high priced for
the public to know much of them, and every year will increase their value. For
au engraving, if it is to be perfect, must
be printed nt the-thne the plate is mnde.
Copies made after ninny yenrs are. from

"I remember a remarkable Incident that
occurred the first year I wns in the business. We had a customer in a good sized
interior town who had been trading wilh
us for a long time nud enjoyed the eulire
confidence of the house. One day iu May
he [mid us n visit and placed a very large
order, going, in filet, lo the extreme limit
of his credit, ile explained ils unusual
size by saying thnt he was about to enlarge his estahllshmeut, that ho had allowed his stock to run down preparatory
to making a big splurge to wipe mu a
rival establishment and, iu short, told
such u plausible story that I nt once approved Ihe account.
"That afternoon a young man from n
furnishing  store  dropped   in  and  asked
whether   Captain    ,   mentioning   (he
merchant's mime, hnd loft the city. '1
nm sorry,' he remarked when he learned
that he hnd gone. 'The captain placed
an order wiib us for a couple of suits of
extra heavy underwear and was anxious
to have them delivered next week. I
wanled to tell him that we'd have to send
north for the goods.' he added, *and Ihey
mny he delayed.'
"That incident set me to thinking.
There might lie Q thousand perfectly natural aud Innocent explanations of tho
order, yet it certainly carried lbt» inference that our fl'ieud wus contemplating
nn early trip to u cooler climnle, anil—
well, 1 hnd n strum; premonition, or whatever you choose to call il, that something
wrong lurked in tlie background. The
more 1 thought nbout li the more uneasy I became, it seemed absurd to
turn down an old friend and lose a handsome sale simply because lie had ordered
some heavy underwear, and 1 knew I
was risking severe censure, If not my
situation itself, hut before night I coun-
tcruiaiiiled his purchases and notified liim
by wile that we hnd decided to trim our
credit lines for the summer and were
sorry that we could uot oblige blm.
"Ile sent buck a furious letter and
placed his order with an opposition firm,
who accepted him gladly. My bosses
looked pretty black when they beard the
story, but they changed their expression

suddenly disappeared nfter turning everything lie hud into cash. Just ns 1 had au-

Seeks Out the Weak Spots and Builds Them Up.
Canadians are workers. Some from
necessity, others from ambition.
Some to provide for self, others for
the dally bread of those dependent
upon them. All alike fall when the
system weakens and health gives way
to disease. The strain of work Is on
the minds of some, on the bodies of
others, but, the nourishing of both
is in the nerves ami blood.
When tlie mind refuses to concentrate in thought, when the brain
tires and aches, when sleepless nights
are followed by days of langour aud
discouragement, when tbe heart palpitates, tho stomach weakens and
there are pains and aches of heart
and body. Dr. Chase will help you by
means of his Nerve Food, the greatest blood builder and nerve restora-
tivo of thc ago.
Without deadening the nerves,
without stimulating the heart to
over-action, I*r. Chase's Nerve Food
gradually and certainly reconstructs
tho tissues wasted by overwork ami
disease. Tbe quality of the blood is
enriched, thc nerves arc revitalized,
and tile new and strengthening tide

"My daughter, who sews in a white

entirely, and was almost a victim of
nervous prostration.
"Hearing of lir. Chase's Nervo Food
she begun to use it, and was bone-
filed from tho very lirst. It proved
an excellent remedy in restoring her
to health and strength, After having
used four boxes, she is now at work
again, healthy and happy, and attributes her recovery lo the use of Dr.

'Our mission today is to te 1 younj men

Feebleness of beard indicates that the

seen his best day or full development,
that he can wisely hope for better things
later on.
On the contrary, tho mnn whose face,

feathers—these correspond to the beard
In man and indicate the state of development which each animal has attained.
The state of your beard measures your
development, and there is nothing to be
more thankful for than slow development.
Tiie better the creation the slower its
growth. At (J weeks of nge the cabbage
far surpasses the oak, but at thc end of n
hundred years, when the oak defies the
storm, where is your cabbage?
If you try hard, you may find imaginary exceptions to this rule. Perhaps
you'll say thnt Napoleon had n beard ns
stiif ns tlint of a walrus almost before he
was out of his teens.
True, but he was fully developed almost before he was out of his teens. He
was a great military genius nt 20, and his
full development and full beard came
early. Uut his career ended early. His
predecessor, Cicsar, had practically no
heard at all, just a few hairs here aud
there, but he lasted longer than Napoleon and could hnve gone on indefinitely
if his friends had not murdered him.
In all truth remarks on young men
there resides of course a useful lesson of
some kind for young women.
Here is the lesson for young women:
Don't despise your young man because
his mustache i.s sickly.
If you are wise, you will tell the young
man to shave, since all beard is nn abomination. Hut if you belong to the primitive female type which demands hair on
the man's face make the best of what
there is there.
You want your young man to develop.
If you get him witli a thick mustache, he
will never bo much 'better than at present, and you will probably have to let
that magnificent mustache take the place
of mental growth and future glory.—Ne

"Cab, ma'am?" he stopped his horse, dismounted from his perch, nnd going toward the curbstone, lifted his lint and inquired:
"Do you propose making use of this vehicle today?"
"Sir!" she said iu tones of astonishment.
"Do you wish to ride in this cab? If so,
I will gladly escort you to it. I aim to

One day, while I was sti'l leader of the

An   El.leilv   Lady   Tell«   of    Iter   Cure
Through  the  Use  of Dr. Williams'
Pink   rills  After   a   Score   of   Other
i:.i„i-.ii.s Bad Failed.
Dyspepsia causes more genuine distress than most diseases that afflict
mankind. In this country from one
cause or another its victims are num.
bered by the hundreds of thousands,
and those alllicteil always feel tired,
worn out nnd miserable, and ure subject to fits of melancholy or i,l temper without apparent cause. It is
obvious that tlie human body, in order to perforin its functions, must be
properly noyrished, and this cannotl
be done when the food is improperly
digested. Those who sufler from indigestion should exerelse discretion as
to diet, and only easily digested
foods should be taken. Hut more
than this is roqulred-tho blood needs
attention in order that the stomach
may be strengthened, and tlie secretin of the gastric juices properly
curried on. There is no other medicine offered the public that will act
so promptly anil effectively as lir.
Williams' Pink Pills. Troof of litis
is given iu -he cn.se of Mrs. p. X.
Doddridge, St. Sauveur, Que. In conversation with a reporter, Mrs. Doddridge said:—"For quite a number of
years I have been a terrible sufferer
from dyspepsia, accompanied b.v tlie
sick headaches that almost invariably conic with this trouble. 1 suf-
fcred from terrible pains in the stomach, bloating and belching with wind.
All food seemed to disagree with me.
and as a result of the trouble I was
very much run down, and at times I
was unable to do even light housework. I am sure I tried a score of
different medicines, but without success, and as 1 am sixty years of age,
I hnd come lo believe that il was
hopeless to expect a cure. A friend
who had used Dr. Williams' rink
Pills with good results, urged me to
try this medicine, and my husband
brought home a couple of boxes. Before they were finished, I felt much
better, and we then got another half
dozen boxen, and tiiese havo completely restored my health, nnd I not
only feel belter than I have done f< r
years, but actually feel younger. T
very cheerfully recommend Dr Williams' Pink Pills to similar sufferers.

A Jn mo lean Experience.
For seme years after my mnrrlntri I
lived nt Old Harbor, a small place
nbnut 20 miles from Kingston. One
day when n visit to my Kingston dressmaker wns a necessity 1 ordered a
young negro boy to get upon tlie rumble nm! drive lie. to the ti \vn.
I paid iny visit to tlio, dressmaker,
arid, receiving my frock, n light summer thing, from ber, I placed it in the
box beneath thu buggy sent nnd drove
:n to my sister's, where 1 went ill to
i.'iienpe tlie heated part of the day. giving my boy sixpence and bidding lilm
see the sights and return nt 4 o'clock.
He turned up punctually, with the
grin still on his face, and In due time
we reached Old Harbor once more.
When I went to tnke out my crispy
muslin, I found, to my consteriinllon, it
vns n wet, sloppy mnss. No rain hnd
fallen, nnd even then—
I turned to the boy: "Solomon, whnt
Mi the world does this menu? How"—
'Hit the look of utter helpless amazement on his fnee stopped me.
