LIQUOR DRINKERS CURED Easily, Safely, Absolutely.
AT HOME.   Wilh no Iosb of Time or Labor.
There is an enl ghtened aid now which takes hold of a man Instantly.
Instead ol* dulling a drinker it gives him almost immediately tiie snap of
new life and p_wer—lets the sunlight of hope into his soul at once and
sets hi» mind into operation with ali ils he.t intelligence — a prompt result of effects on the neives, stimuli and while i ody which are quick
and marvelous. While at this point the cure has only begun, the encouragement is eo great that piobably no medical woik tqualB tbis in

With .his help against tie drink habit any n ai who wants to lift fiom
his life the handicap of liquor using can do so wfth immediate re. ulta.
This guaranteed treatment is within reach of all. Convenient term . can

treatment that will really do the work and cure forever. It ia a serioui
undertaking and requites a high form of scientific professional work. Ali
the different kinds of cases are li milled under guaranteed results. Oul;
-kill that is developed to the highest can do in. Only professional fe~.
can pay for the time it requires, though they are made moderate . nd convenient for anybody. The methods of practice used in this work has co«t
years of time, vast study and expensive experiments. The originator, IV.
William H. Saunders, had attracted wide notice for his works on Net vou ~
diseases long before perfecting this treatment. And still nothing but cure
and personal attention to cases today makes it possible fo» him to accomplish the absolu'e cures which he guarantees. So the reader will Sethis treatment means thorough scientific, professional attention. Hut it
also means results that are absolutely certain. The splendid first effects
on a man are alone worth the entire cost of treatmeut.
This treatment can be given WITH or WITHOUT the knowledge of

can be true. "Is it possible that there is such a glotiotis opportunity?"
she will ask. And thousands of wives who have put it to the test and rejoice in the reclamation of their spouses who seemed lost to all sense of

Kipling    » Komi ... I'le.
Rudyard    Kipling,    it appCat'8,    is
fond of apple pie baked on the Amcr- I
ican system.    To gratify his taste a
glass rolling pin s;>e: tally    used    in
tbe manufacture of    these pics    has |
just  been  forwa'ded  to   the  no\olist '
from Wanamaker's.     The glass   i oil- :
ing pin    has    among   other    advantages  the      me it    of   always    being
sweet end dean, and of being hollow
so that, it can be liiled with ice    to
cool the pie crust.    When Mrs.   Kipling,  who  is an  American,     was     in
that country last summer, she great- ,
ly    admired    this    contrivance,    i nl
knowing that her husband ard child- |

In Canada, abovo all other coun-
ti'i s, we have gr. at, need to ei.cour-
a e individuality, for <.ur system of
public education, howovd. excell mt,
takes but little count of the indiid-
ual, and I'rom a, certain standpoint
we tiro educating on a system which
tends to destroy anything like strong
int i. idunlity. In fact, if you take
th- spi-.it which prevails in our
s.null.i' towns and Ullages you will
lind a positive resentment against
the man or woman who dares to
sti iko out in any line, of bis own. Go
into our larg_ si oris and you will
lind one huge table coveted with tho
snme form of ba>,, reproduced a thousand times. Pass into thc mantle de.
piirlment, and on great tiees hang
coats and jackets of tho exact cut
and mako and color; and all this is
influencing our people and their view
of individuality and ils right, to assert itself in any lino in li'e. With
all our boasted freedom, e*s compared to the past, we fall into tine IL e
mild-eyed sheep'and follow the mass.
In the old days we mijjht ha^e been
led by ''individuals; to-day it is tho

I'.i-ltis i vine Drinking.
The consumption of claret in Groat
Britain, which grow pretty steadily
after the French commercial treaty
negotiated by Mr. Oobden in 1861,
would seem to have received a check.
The importation of R'till wines from,
France has fallen off by :-07„000 gallons. The sales of Burgundy, Sau-
terne and Chablis have not matei ial-
ly varied, and the tlctkit is entirely
attributable to the comparative neglect of claret. In spite of war in
the first five months of 1902 and
high taxation, there was an increase
in the consumption of champagne of
nearly 20,000 gallons. The decline
of claret has naturally been followed by an increase in the drinking of
port. Thc importation of this Wind
has increased by 33,000 gallons, and
if Dr. Johnson's dictum be true that
claret is the drink for bo5's and
port wino 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 hasi
fallen off, and thoy will bo equally
delighted to hear that there has boon
a growth in tho consumption of Australian wines of over 2*56,000 gallons.

The Labor Market
The call for suitable men to
carry on (Janatlian industries is
loud and long. Three months
ago a Provincial Premier was
waited upon liy a representative
delegation of fanners who said
that, at least 3000 men were
needed to help them with their
crop.". The directors of Iron industries in the same province are
asking for 5000 suitable men.
It seems that men are not so
scarce as are workers.

firs. Silvester D<\iii Leveen Wits polish-
her brass knocker. Her Inn)., thin
litis rubbed anil rvbbed till the little
lite curls on hor forehead duiurd like
"bet children. Yet, the labor hail no per-
Itlble effect. The metal shone like
|ht, but so it   ditl   when    she began to
an it. It had shune like I hat yesterday
ll the day before, and, indeed, every
t for 60 years.    There   was   a smooth
Me till around the   knocker where   her
Jlcate hands had worn into   the   hard,
|ick wood of the door. Nevertheless the
lady rubbed   away   just   as  she had
io every morning since tho   spring   of
181), when she   was   brought,   a   bride,
Tto the house.    She   was   the   pride   of
(.eenwieh village then, and   she   meant
I be still.
LOn this particular frosty morning Mrs.
Tveen tarried longer  than  usual at her
Isk. Alter the lion's head was   satlsfao
I. ly even to her sharp eyes,   she worked
li.    But it was evid.nt   in   the   glances
Tie shot across Bank   street   that her attention was not given wholly to the work
If her hands.    Neither was it diverted to
Iter customary   inspection   of the neigh-
lor's knockers. Theirs glistened like her?,
Ind, besides,   every   time   she looked up
ler eyes turned to but  one   door, that of
pie house   In   front   of which stood two
turdy horses and a truck.
Pretty soou the door opened and a
loung man in a carter's blouse came out.
Ke saw tiie old lady across the street,
■hough he pretended not to. He busied
TUinself ostentatiously about the horses'
heads for a moment and then turned
luck to the truck. Mrs. Loveen had seen
phn. She bent herself earnestly to the
jnocker and in a few Strokes finished it
fcff. Then she faced towards the street
Ind filed the truckman with her eyes till
^e hud to look up
'Goad morning, Aunt Martha," he
[laid, its he doffed his cap.
"Good morning, Percy," she answered
jjleasantly, ns ho approached her, cap in
'land. "Come in a moment. I wish to
(.peak with you."
The interview he had dreaded for
Iweeks was upou him now. He knew from
the first it was inevitable, but day after
|lay he had nut it off, omitting his usual
.tils on his aunt, and avoiding her sight
land summons. Now that she had caught
■him he was glad. As ho followed the old
|lady iuto her prim, comfortable sitting-
room he made a pitiful figure of hutnil-
lity, but in the meekness of his soul there
|w.is the cheerfulness of finality.
'Sit down, Percy," she said, in the
[sweet-toned voice ho loved.
He took the chair   she   indicated,   antl
| she seated herself in her old rocker.
'Percy, dear," she began, "is this true
I that I hear; you mean to marry this
'Yes, Aunt Martha. I was going to
tell you, but knowing as you were agin
it—knowing that you would not like to
have mo do so—I was afraid to come to
you about it."
He stuck his cap between his knees.
"1 am sorry. Percy, you felt that way.
It 's my intention always to be kind and
(Sympathetic. You should have been unite
sure I would have heard your story
through with understanding. Now, tell
me everything. She Is the daughter, I
am told, of a German in Hudson strePt."
'' That's right, aunt. Her father 1 as
the biggest corner grocery over there, and
he has made his pile—I menu has made
money since he's been there."
"How long has he been here."
"Going on 25 years. He's almost nn
old Ninth-warder now. He's some In
politics, and his family is right in it."
"Percy! I never knew them."
"I know, but you wouldn't;. It ain't
my fault. I wanted to have them all
over to mother's so as you could be introduced to them."
The old lady looked as though she
would answer this, but she ditl not. She
was silent for a moment before she proceeded.
"So her father is a grocer?"
"Yes; liko Mr. Jamison, who you like
well enough."
"Mr. Jamison is a gentleman, my
dear. The misfortunes of his family can
never alter that. The Jamisons are of the
oldest Greenwich families on both sides.
He is a grocer by necessity. This person
of whom we are speaking is one by
"Well, Aunt Martha, it's as good as
being a truckman, and better."
Mrs. Leveen winced.
"You might have been a judge, like
your father, or a senator, like your
grandfather. I wanted you to enter political life."
"Politics is pretty low down these
days," Percy remarked. "It ain't what
it was. Besides, I tried to get an office
from Mike McNamara, but he said. I
wouldn't do in uny where the pay was
as much as the trucking pays. And I
guess that's about so."
The last sentence was cheerfully
spoken. Mrs. Leveen looked at her nephew's rudy cheeks and sighed.
"I do wish, Percy," she said, gently,
"that you could have found somo one in
Greenwich. That part of Hudson street
where these people live is way beyond the
outskirts of the old village, out where the
hog fields were till the immigrants began
to settle around us."
"But what's the difference, Aunt
Martha? It's all one now. There ain't no
Greenwich nny more. It's all just New
York city, so whut'n the uso of pretending*-"
Tho impatience in the young man's
tone amazed this aunt almost as much as
the sentiment he uttered. Never before
had he failed to show hfrr-"--'   n~ ""
 7r_T.T---pecii.-un the"
contrary, the humbleness of his demeanor
had been a grievance to her; it did not
become, oue of her blood to manliest the
same awe before her that an ordinary
Ninth-warder did.
The old lady straightened in her chair,
the lines about her mouth stiffened and
her eyes glistened like her knocker as
she answered:—
"Percy Dean! You forget to whom you
are speaking. You forget yourself, sir,
aud your good breeding is evidently
suffering from the associations you permit yourself."
Percy was frightened. The last time
he had been rebuked in this temper by
his aunt was when he was a boy. He
meant no offense.
"I beg your pardon, Aunt Martha,"
he murmured.
Mrs. Leveen took her knitting from
the table and worked busily at it till she
was quite calm. She looked up after
every few thrusts of her needle, indignantly at first, then coldly, and finally
the habitual expression of kindness returned to her faoe.
"I da-re say you are in a hurry to go to
town, Percy, and   I shall not detain you
inuoh ion ror.    Yu   may   tell   me something about t vis young—this   girl.   How
old is she?"
"She is goitie on 19, Aunt Martha."
"Is she   cultivated,   educated?   Come,
Percy, tell me all ahout her."
"She went through the grammir
school, I think, hut she hnd to wor.-:
after that? So she can t play the piano
cr sing, but she is a nice girl **ihi can
tend the house and cook, no.v that her
mother is t/ad."
"That's right; she ought to   be able to
manage her husband's ho..se oi*;. But tell
me more about her.    I.   ner   voice srft,
I are her man:.ers   geutl', is   she mtdest?
I Describe  her   to   me,   my   dear, is she
| pretty?"
P. rcy was oneourrged by the '.e:s words
| of approval he had wen.
j     "Aunt, she's a be.tu ', that's—*'
|     "What do ypu sty, a wha ? '
"I mean slip's a beauty. S.icvsgit blue
j eyes and blond hair and   ihe nicest, big-
j ge. t, reddest cheeks,   She ain't what you
i would call qubt; s ie s more   l.vely-like.
; You ought to hear' it *r laugh when we're
! down on the docks   nights   with the rest
! of the crowd. I'll Im   you could hear her
I across the river in Hobo ken.    And jolly?
If she gets a mug as is too fresh she can
1 jolly him -long to beat   tbe   band.    But
she's on the   level,    too.    She   tioes   tie
square thing by her old man ev ivy   cli .
; The housework   has   to   be   tlo na befor >
I she's In for the game. And she slaves for
her little sifters and brothers—just slaves
for them, and yet she does it as   willin ..
But then she's good to everybody j always
ready to help out with work whan neighbors are behind or sick or have company,
and she sticks up for horses and cats and
all like that.    You wouldn't   believe she,
was that way, though,   to   see   her   at a
ball or dancing on excursion boats up tl.e
river.    She's a   good looker  an I a  good
dresser, and when she's out in  full rig—
well, say, she's a sight. Theoth.r fellows
don't   do nothing when we're o.it—"
Percy stopped short. Mrs. Levaen had
rissn suddenly, and she stood erect before
him, tall and white and proud.
"Why. Aunt Martha!" he exclaimed.
"That's enough, Percy. Thank you. I
see I have been wrong, all wrong;, in this
matter from the first. You sh^Il have
your own way.for it is right. I consent."
"Oh, Aunt Martha!" he cried, springing up and seizing her hand to kiss. "I
am so glad. But I knew you w mid after
hearing about her. And say, aunt, you
ought to see her once. You coui ln't help
but like her and admire her. Everybody
in the ward does. Why, tlo you know
what they call her the men down at tho
Grapevine? The way you loolcfd then
made mo think of it. They call her the

Attracting Attention

i. Its Fraser River Placers.    -^^}
As far back as the year 1658, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef

the present time,
A company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying succes.., and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooi_t.

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
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, hear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound. Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a, luxury.

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, and
