LIQUOR DRINKERS CURED Easily, Safely, Absolutely.
AT HOME.    With no loss of Time or Labor.
There is an enli_h'ened aid how whirl, takes hobl of a man instantlv.
I'Mtnul i .lulling « drinker it (jives liim almost iinni'diately tiie snap cf
liewlife and power—let" the Bilnliitlit nf hoi e into lil. -Otil-at ojnre and
sets his mind intooperMtion with all its lieit IutelIi^euce — a prompt result of effects on the net ves, st. inaih anil whole I olv which are quirk
and marvelous. While at this point the cure has only heynn, the encouragement ia eo great that piobably no medical woik tquals this in
satisfaction to a patient.
With ihis help .gainst the drink habit any man who want" to lift fiom
Ins life the handicap of liquor using ran do so wfth immediate r*e-11.18.
This guaranteed treatment is within teach of all. Convenient term-" ran
be arranged satisfactory to any one « ho is at all rtaoiiable, thoni.h, as
all people understand.it ilocs rt t com pare with the wo thles- quack
cures advertised at so much per p~cka~e, or "Free", etc. Ii i. a tliffereit
matter from all thi. to perfect a «our e of thorough, special, pergonal
treatment that will really do the work and cure forever. It is a .erious
undertaking ami requites a high form of scientific professional work. All
the different kind- of oases art* h nulled under guaranteed results. Only
•kill that is developed to the highest can do in. Only professional fees
can pay for the time it requires, though they are made moderate . nd convenient for anybody The n ethods of practice used in this work has cost
years of tint-, vast situly and expensive experiments. The originator, Dr.
vVt'linin H. SauniWs, had attracted wide notice for his works on Neivous
diseases long before perfecting this treatment. And nill nothing hnt care
and personal attention to cases today makes it possible for him to accomplish the absolu'e cures which he guarantees. So the reader will see
this treatment means thorough scientific, professional atteniun. lint it
also means results that are absolutely certain. The splendid lirst effects
on a man are alone worth the entire cost of treatment.
This treatment can be given WITH or WITHOUT the knowledge of
the patient and can be placed in any of bis foods or liquids that he sites,
and bein. colorless and tasteless, it does its work so silently and quickly
that the drunkard iB reclaimed even .gain.t his will and wi hunt Id's
knowledge and co-operation. Tl.e wife mated for years to a husband addicted to Hi's curse will wonder if curing her husband bv her own effort"
can be true. "Is it possible that there is such a glotious opp.rtunity?"
she will ask. And thousands of wives who have put it to the test and re-
juice in the reclamation of heir spouses who seemed lost lo all sense of
self-tespecl, generosity and manliness will trumpet out to lhe world,
"Yes, it is true". Our treatment is purelv vegetable, contains no narcotics, opiates, poisons or mineials. We u~e no hypodermic lnjec'ion of gold,
nor any dangerous compound. It can be taken at home without anv loss
or detention from business. It stimulates the nervous system at once,
incieases the appetite, and affords perfect rest at, night. It acts directly
upon Ihe stomach, builds up Ihe whole system, eliminates all luce of liquor from the body and leaves thc patient in the s~tne condition as if liquor
hud never been taken.
those who have been deceived by worthless remedies. If your friend or
husband is Ihe worst case in the community, we are more anxious to cure
him.   Read the following:

Dear Sirs:— I have just reiurned afler a long absence, and feel it my

hundred times and does not crave it at all. For nine years he has been
away from bis parentsaud never duiing tbat lime hns he been able to
keep away from home long enough to visit home. lie is now visiting his
home in Cleveland, Ohio, and I efcpect him back In a few davs. When he

The Conservative platform is
being brought prominently before (lie peopleo. the I'rovinee, so
that tlie electors may com pure it
with that of the Libe'al Party.
As soon as the platform of the
Liberal purty comes to hantl, we
shall, in a future issue, place the
two platforms sitle by siile iu our
columns, s-> that our readers can
compare them. Eil.
The following-platform was a-
dopted unanimously liy the Rev-
elstoke Convention on September
12th, 3902:
1—"That tliis Convention reaffirms the policy of the Party in
matters of Provincial roads anil
trails; the ownership and control
of railways and the development
of the agricultural resources of
the Province, as laid tlown in the
Platform adopted iu October
1899, which is as follows:
''To actively aid in the construe ion of
trails throughout the I'rovinee and the
building of Provincial Trunk ro.tds of
public necessity.
"To adopt Ihe principle of Government ownership of railways in so far as
the circumstances of the Province will
admit, and to adopt the principle that
no bonus shou'd be granted lo any railway cotnpiuy which does not give the
government of Ih-Province control of
rales over lines bonused, together with
I he option of purchase.
f'To actively assist by Slate aid in Ihe
development of the agricultural resources of tbe Province." •
2—That in the meantime and until
the Railway pn'icy above set forth can
be accomplished, a genera' Kailway Act
be passed, giving freedom to construct
railways nnder certain approved regulations, analagous to the system that has
resulted in such ex'ensive railway construction in the United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
3—That to encourage the mining industry, the taxation of metalliferous
mints should be on the basis of a p.icen-
of the net profits.
4—That the Government ownership of
telephone systems should be b>ought
about as a first step in the acquisition
of public utilities.
5—That a portion of every coal area lo
be hereafter disposed of, should be reserved from sale or lease, so that state-
owned mines may easily be accessible,
if their operation become necessary or
6—That in the pulp land leases provision should be made for refoie-ting
and lhat steps Bhouid be taken for the
general preservation of forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of
7—That tbe Legislature and government of the Province should persevere
iu the effort to secure the exclusion of
Asiatic lab ir.
8—Tnat the mailer of lietier siiiisulie.
and appropriations f'ir 11.C. lie vigoront-
ly pressed upon the Dominion G veiii-
9--That the silver "lead itiilu. tries be
fostered by the imposition of increased
Customs duties on lead and lead products importe I into Canada.
10—That arrangements lie made fi r nn
amicable adj istm -nt uf the relations between employe's and employed.
II —That it is advisable to losier tlit
manufacture uf the raw pr ducts of the
province within the Province as far a.
practicable by means of taxation on lhe
said raw products subject to rebiie ol
the same in whole or iu part when manufactured in British Columbia.

Lawyers the B„~t Alius.*! ami Moat Trust-
eil of Men.
The third of the public lecture
course of McMasler University, Toronto, on "The Ethics'of Law" proved most entertaining and instructive,
many of those present coming away
with a very different opinion of some
phases of the profession of law and
its practice to that which they had
before the lecture. Mr. 1). E. Thum-
son, K.O., dose, ibed lawyers as at
once the best abisad and the most
gem rally trusted members of the
community. He analyzed thc business of thc ordinary law firm, of
which not more than 2 per cent, ia
criminal, and of the balance not more
than 10 per cent, ever comes to trial
in the courts, while in four-fifths of
the cases which do reach the courts
there are no appeals entered. Tho
nature of his business and experience
made the lawyer conservative in regard to changes in the law, and,
c immenting upon what is sometimes
termed the .'lavish adherence to precedent in the law. Mr. Thomson insisted nothing could be more revolutionary and dangerous than departure from this practice. In this connection he laid down three cardinal
piimi. lea for guidance:—(1) That
law is better than justice; (2) that it
is more necessary the law should be
certain than that it should be light,
and (3) that equity administered according to the Judge's personal idea
of right and wrong would result in a
cross between lottery and despotism.
Mr. Thoinj.san illustrated the numerous points he made by umusing anecdotes antl entertaining reminis-
ii ncs, which made thc subject of
"law" anything but dull.
The Itml nf a Tree.
Among the curious things rerontly
discovered by the students of plunt
life is the fait that a bud taken from
one tree and grafted on another carries tie age cf the oiiginol tree with
it. It bus always been belie.ed that
the bud so transfer! ed began a wholly new life, bit thi'" new theoiy—it
may, after all, be more theory than
fact ns yet—shows tlo matter in an
entirely dlCoiont light.
For example, if a bud be taken
from a tree that is twenty-five ,\ ears
old with a natural life of fr.'ty years
and grafted on another tree it will
not live as long as its patent tree
is entitled to live t'ie full fifty
years, but only for the ie iod of
life then left to lli« tree, twenty-five
Attracting Attention
on account of
i. Its Fraser River Placers.
As   far back as the   year lt.58, 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 $350,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.
ANI.1.1.SON f.AKi- and it it EDO'is itiVEit mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of  territory that remain  un prospected.
3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds-<^^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Kirmlise is hero. Mountain sheep, hear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound. Anglers lind 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 maybe grown, aiul
at tlie present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen iu bloom

Origin nf llnb~»ii'~ Cliolre.
Mr. Harper tells us all there isi to
be told about Thomas Hobson, the
fauioi s carrier between London nnd
Cajnbiidge, who died in l«33t. It
was from him that thii proverb of
'Ho'>~on's choice," arose, moaning,
of coins., a choice whi.h is no
choice. "The saying arose from tho
livery stable business carried on by
Hobson at Cambridge, in addition to
his carrying trade. Ile is, Indeed,
said to have been tbe first who
made a business of letting out saddle horses. His practice, invariably
lolljwed, was to refuse to allow any
ho ire i'i bis stable to be taken out
of i s proper turn. "That or none

Cambridge students, eager t>. pick

own fancy in hoiseflcsh. Every customer was served alike, wilhout favors'—London  Telegraph.

runch's   Cartoonist   Is   Very   I rieiully  Jo
the Loudon " Force."
In an appreciative sketch of Mr.
Phil J\Iny, the famous cartoonist and
humorist artist, M.A.P. tells the following:—Mr. May's friendliness with
"the fcjr.ee" is ol' old standing, and
theie is hardly a policeman in his
district who does not think of him
whenever any very funny expei ience
is encountered. Only the other clay
a constable accosted the artist in
the street to tell him a "good story
lor Punch." A moment or two later
a second bobby came on the scene for
the same purpose, and, turning round
a corner in St. John's Wood, Mr.
May found himself supported on
either side by an eager raconteur in
blue. He then cair.c faee to face with
a lady of his acquaintance, and, as
he tells it bin self: "She looked at
me with such sympathy and an expression that so plainly suid, 'Don't
make a fiiss, better go quietly with
them,' that even the bobbies had to
smile at the .situation!"
The '• Uolt.vvill-" Drawings.
The series of "Dottyville" drawings in Punch is well known to Mr.
May's urtist. fi ionds, one of whom
brought him a letter from an inmate
of IJanwell Asylum, which said: "I
greatly resent those sketches. You
apparently do not understand your
subject, for you have drawn the head
of an idiot and labelled it n. lunatic.
Vou ought to know the difference,
but you dou't—nnd 1 nm not Surprised, for, although ] have never
6' e:t you, 1 nm very familiar with
I i.rtur.s of you, and in all drawings
and photographs 1 ha\e nol etl that
yours is the head of an idiot." Mr.
May rcaordi. against himself the fact
that, having proceeded thus far with
the letter, a listening friend who tlid
not. mean lo be uncomplimentary
broke in: "Oh, the man who wrote
lhat letter was no lunatic," a remark that naturally upset the gravity of the party and covered the
speaker with confusion.

lhat now remains is a ruined homestead, for the pla^e is used purely
fer graying purposes. A striking
feature of the isles i.s the fact that
no mice can live there, and on various occasions, to test the truth of
this, mice have been caught and
slipped on lhe isle, hut so uncongenial did its soil prove to their existence thnt in a short time they
were dead. There aie instances of
