Oming to the failure of the remittance
of certain returns to the department of
mines on the pact of mine owners or
tbeir representatisea, W. F. Robertson,
provincial mineralogist, has issued a
strict order in the form of a circular
which is now being sent to tbe delinquents. Thee* returns should bave been
made by January 1st. and tbe department would like to collect them at as
early a date as possible. The provincial
law officers have been notified to strictly

The war in South Africa has again reached
a attire which the British newspapers _all the
eve of the termination. Rumors of the surrender of Gen. Botha and the collapse of all
Boer resistence flourish to the great benefit of
South African stocks. That those who are
most responsible for carrying on the war do
not share this opinion, is perfectly evident
from Mr. Brodrick's officials utterances and
the conviction of .his colleagues, including
Lord Roberts. Their carefully prepared campaign, which has been quietly maturing during the past six months, is beginning to have
its first results, and they are perfectly satisfied.
The new concentration of thei/ hopes referred
to by the correspondents at the front, is only
one of the maay steps for which Gen. Kitchener has so long been preparing. That it will
l«d to the complete disintegration of the
more important Boer units and possibly to the
personal surrender of Generals Botha and
Dewet, the British war office earnestly hopes.
Gen. Kitchener is almost as reticent towards
his chiefs in Pall Mall as to the general public.
When he has taken Gen. Botha into his camp
the war office expects to hear of it, but before,
as an official said to a reporter of the Associated Press, grimly, "armistices are not in Kitchener's line."
The meeting of Gen. Kitchener and Sir Alfred Milner at Pretoria, probably occurriog on
Sunday, is generally taken as likely ro result in
the establishment of a more permanent form
of civil government, in] which the severity of
martial law will be somewhat tempered in several sections of the country, but neither in
London nor in South Africa are the British
Officials shutting theireyes to the fact that they

only be lightened, and by no means so'ved,

glory which thc British press sometime ago
showered on Geo, Dewet has departed from
him. In despatches and editorials he is now
belittled as a disappointed raider, deserted by

force which, though not formidable in numbers, would be ptrticultrly formidable in execution. Tlie false announcement of Gen.
Botha's surrender on Thursday will be a matter of discussion in the house of commons, especially the fact which accompanied the assertion, that it was official. The latest " fake "
has given rise to many editorials commenting
upon the deterioration and unreliability of sections of tho British press, comparing the latest
example with the notorious Pekin massacre

Dr. Brackett and associates have acquired and last season did consideiable work
but was pat back by the heavy freshets
which played havoc with their whole

work and the number will be increased
as work continues. It was the intention
to bring in a five-stamp mill during the
past winter, but on estimating tlie cost
of transportation it was decided to wait
until ne_t year, when probably there
would ba better roaae, and expend the
amount on developing the property and
would then install the necessary plant
for working the property.
Mr. Rathburn, who spent a few weeks
here last year, will return again during
May and remain until the fall.
Big Bar (Joid Dredge.
J. G. Collins reports everything ready
to start the gold dredge at Big Bar as
soon as the river is clear of ice. For the
last six or eight «eeks he with his partners in the enterprise bave been working hard overhauling the dredge generally and replacing the gold saving arrangements with the DeKeyser system
of sluices and other appliances specially
made nfter many testa for tbe saving of
fine gold. It is claimed for this HyBteni
that it is an impossibility for any fine
gold to eBcape. Gold dredging men win
watch with interest the result of this
system of faving gold. Mr. Collins will
return to the dredge, whiob if now
about a mile above Big Bar, and operations may be expected to begin next
Word received from the Bend'Or mine
this week states that they expect to have
the mill started up in two weeks time
crushing ore. With the development
on the mine this winter it has shown it
up to better advantage and there is a
large quantity of ore in the bins a;.d
sufficient in sight to keep the mill going
for tome time.
The machinery for the Lorne mill ie
about all at the mine and is being put in
place, and will be ready to crush ore in
a short time. Tbe mine is looking exceptionally well and Foreman Barker is
doing good systematic work in opening
up the mine.
The annual general meeting of the
Bend'Or Mines, Ltd., will be held this
week at the company's office in Vancouver.        	
Does Dining Pay?
The Engineering and Mining Journal,
which makes a specialty of compiling
the dividends of mining corporations in
the United States, stated in a late issue
that the total dividends paid in 1900 by
210 companies allied with the mineral
industry of the United States is $30,-
The enormous dividend disbursements
place the mining industry among the
most profitable of the nation's indua
The copper mines paid $33,433,000, or
more than one-fourth of the total dividend disbursements for the year, which
puts our copper production first in importance.
This list of dividend payers, however,
does not include many metallurgical in-
lustries tbat disbursed large dividends
during the year, and which Bhouid be
added to the disbursements of the mining companies proper,
The Journal predicts that dividends
will bo materially increased during the
current year.
Tlie Cobeldlck Dredge Sold.
The large dredge and plant at Lytton,
belonging to the Cobeldick Dredge Co.
No. 1, Limited, was sold by Deputy
Sheriff Francis Webb, under execution
at the following instance: Butler, Barnum and McK.night, who had judgments
against the company, and also under a
chattel mortgage in which tbe company
were mortgagors and Thos. Dunn <t Co.
were mortgagees. The debt against the
compauy aggregated $4,277. Only a few
were present at the sale and the bidding
was quiet and the bid of $9,600 by Fred.
Wilson, M. Ii., London, Eng., was accepted and immediate possession was
Weil  Yale's  riember.
The Provi nee says: Tlie honor of moving the adoption ol the speech from tbe
throne was in the banda of Mr. Denis
Murphy, the result being an oratorical
effort which Hon, Mr. Turner pronounced the ablest, on such an occassien,
which he had heard in bis fourteen
years in the boose Mr. Murphy's reputation aa a speaker preceeded him to
Victoria, but he allowed all last «ci,i„
to slip by without once raising his voice
in debate, a distinction shared by tba
premier and Mr. Mounce. Perhaps this
fact enhanced the interests of his re
marks today. Evidently the young barrister from Ashcroft had devoted some
time to making the effort worthy of tbe
occasion, and that he succeeded was attested by the fact that when he resumed
his seat he was beseiged by cabinet ministers and prominent government supporters, eager to offer their congratulations to the young speaker, who, despite
his Hibernain name is a native born
British Columbian.
Oovernnient Aesav Office.
A despatch from Ottawa states that
the government has decided to open an
assay office at Vancouver, at which gold
will be purchased from returning miners
at its full value in the same manner that
it has during the past season been purchased at Seattle for the United States
mint. It is probable that a branch of
the Royal mint will bo established at

Politics in New South Wales is quite

is ungrateful enough to forget his constituents is likely to bear from them.
Tlie Western Grazier, which is published
at Welcannia, New South Wales, piints
this letter, which the member of parliament from the Big River country received not long ago. It was written by
a man who had applied for a job and

9   How It   Was   Recovered   by a
0 Detective.
It was the night of Nov. 4, 1899, as
Mr. David Allen sat blue penciling
some proof sheets, wlien there earne a
ponderous thud that to him seemed
just under the window. It shook the
whole house, and when he looked out
of the window he saw that something
had made a deep hole In the garden.
The next day he dug up a small meteor. It was a most formidable looking piece of metal. It contained at the
surface a small crystal.
'i'he stone In size and shape resembled the egg of a rock pigeon, but in
color it was watery, with just a tinge
of yellow. Mr. Alleu wrapped it up In
tissue paper, placed it in a box aud called on the scientist to ask his opinion.
Dr. Itel'ord said it was a leopardlte—
a mineral, he said, found always In a
crystallized condition—and talkedabout
lateral planes, oblique prisms, translucent edges and wound up by giving
the component parts of this wonderful
stone aud its specific gravity.
"Is the stone of auy value, Dr. Re-
ford?" Alleu asked.
"Well, scientifically, yes; Intrinsically, no. But bci'ore returning It I
would like to make a further and more
exhaustive Inquiry into the chemical
parts of it."
"Certainly, Dr. Keford. Keep It as
long as you wish." Then Allen went
lie thought no more about it until
his friend Jones asked:
"What have you tloue with the pebble, Allen?"
"Oh, I took It to a local doctor who
dabbles a bit In science."
"Did he tell you what it was? I'll
tell you why I ask. Do you remember
Clayton of Yale? Well, no matter,
lie's a wonderfully smart chap. 1 saw
him absolutely make a diamond a few
weeks back, lie explained that the
piuhead he produced was of tho first
water and that when electricity was
better known diamonds would be as
cheap as they are now dear. He placed
a few metals nud other ingredients Into a crucible and then boiled the lot up
by the aid of a powerful electric current, with the result I've told you.
Now, Claytou says if he could only get
au odd hundred or thousand degrees,
1 forget  which,   more  heat  he could
make a diamond as big as a hen's egg.
Despite all efforts of Allen to dispel
tbe thoughts conjured up by Jones' remarks the matter would recur. He
tried to laugh It away, but to no avail,
bo ho walked over to Dr. Reford's to
ask for the pebble's return.
The doctor was iu and disengaged.
"Well, Mr. Allen, I have dissolved
that stoue. It was nothing more than
glass." Dr. Refold showed Alleu a
wide necked vial with some whitish
liquid in It aud beneath which was a
small rlilge of green sediment.
"There," said he, "is all that is left
of your treasure, Mr. Allen."
Allen was disappointed lu not having
tbe pebble to keep as a memento. He,
however, snid it couldn't be helped.
"I'll tell you what I will do, Mr. Allen. I'll solidify that sediment so that
you may have something to remind you
of your midnight visitor."
Alleu jumped at the offer and left,
About a week after this Dr. Reford,
accompanied by a youngish looking
man, called upon Allen. The doctor
Introduced the youngish looking mnn
ns Dr. Smith. He said Dr. Smith was
going lo take charge of his practice
while he voyaged to Europe.
The next day a gentlemanly Individual called to see Mr. Allen on urgent
"My name Is John Westlock," said
he, "and I'm a detective sent to you
under Instructions from Mr. Albert
Jones, a friend of yours."
"Hood heavens, man, what's up?"
"According to Mr. Jones, sir, a few
weeks back you had a meteor fall In
your garden."
"I had.   What then?"
"You sent a pebble it contained to a
local doctor named Reford for examination ?"
"Well, sir, tbe day before yesterday
this doctor called upon Mr. Claytou,
the eminent scientist, and explained
thnt the meteor fell In his garden and
that he found the pebble. Mr. Clayton
examined It and found it to be a most
valuable diamond. A few minutes after the doctor left Mr. Clayton's bouse
your friend, Mr. Jones, called and was
told the story about the meteor. He
was satisfied lhat somehow this doctor
had got the pebble from you and had
deceived you. Of course It's your nf
fair, but If my advice Is wortii any.
thing I'd go and get whnt he says Is
all that remains of your pebble."
To tills Mr. Allen agreed.
Together they Journeyed to Or. B*>
ford's and were somewhat surprised
when uot tho doctor, bul ihi housekeeper, came to the door.
"Oil, Air. Alleu, is it you, sir? I'm so
glad to fee you! Things is in an awful mess Afore any uf us were up this
morning thai Mr. Smith—or Dr. Smith
(contemptuously) — leaves the iionse.
Soon after the master was up there
was au awful row. He swore he'd
been robbed, and when Ue heard as
Ihis Smith man nad gone I thought he
was going mad, sir: indeed I did. He
raved round the place like a regular
luuy and then ran lo the railroad station-
Mr. Allen had no difficulty In obtaining the vinl. Inn Westlock learned nothing nt the station. There lind not been
a single passeijs_' either to arrive or
dopant. These two doctors seemed to
liave vanished completely.
Tlie green sudli'.icnt wns analyzed,
proved to bo nothing but copperas in
solution, nnd with thai solitary piece
if information tlie police and all cou-
eerned iu the mutter had in lie couteut.
Allen hnd almost forgotten about his
pebble, when Westlock, the detective,
-ailed again.
"Well, Mr. Westlock. any news?"
isked Allen, somewhat surprised.
"I've got your diamond, Mr. Allen.
As uo outside news was obtainable, I
eame to the conclusion that there bail
been some foul play, nud for the lasi
fortnight I've beeu searching the
neighborhood, nud met with success
ihis morning. Both doctors' bodies
wore lying in Merldon quarries hidden
nnong a lot of undergrowth. To ine ii
is clear. Dr. Reford must hnve seen
Smith hiding or seeking shelter, and
the two must have had a struggle on
he cliff and iu their frenzy have fallen
Allen took tlie pebble and examined
,t and declared it wns the one he had
•xtraeled from the meteor, lie said In-
wanted lo sell It at once. It was de
.•hied that he should run up lo town
md if possible dispose of it. Allen had
provided himself with plenty of work
o occupy him during the journey anil
ivas quite absorbed in it when a band
-oinely dressed woman entered the
•otnpnt'tnieut wherein lie snt. This
ather disconcerted him. for ho smoked
heavily. The train was ngnin in motion, when tho door was suddenly
ipened and an elderly gentleman stum
bled in.
Ten minutes later, without any warn
Ing, the elderly gentleman stood up.
'overed Allen witli a revolver nnd demanded the diamond.
"Dou't move, luy good sir, or you'll
liuil yourself perforated wilh u (-hunk
of lend, and you. madam, had better
keen quiet also, as tlie threat, 1 tun
lorry to sny, must extend to you. You
-iee, our friend there has lu his possession a diamond worth nearly half a
million of money, and we don'i pick
up fortunes like that every day nt' tl.e
"Now, then, sir. hurry up; 1 can feel
the train !s slowing up. nud I liltlsl
skip out lively, you bet. Dou't get oul
your precious diamond hurriedly or 1
may think you mean mischief, and pull
this trigger. Thai's the ticket, slow
r.nd sun-. Thank you; just place it on
the seat here. I'm union obliged. Ah.
the train is slowing up nicely, (live
my regards to Inspector Westlock, will
you, and tell him only for his untiring
efforts our little gang would never
have got this plum. Smith got the
doctor fooled, but made a mess of it
(iood evening, madnui."
All smiles nnd contentment, the elderly gentleman gof ready to "skip."
The train wns running Into the station,
nnd still covering Allen, he tried to
open the door, but II wns stiff and necessitated his stooping awkwardly,
nnd, of course, removing his "bond"
from Allen. The handle weut click,
and when the elderly gentleman looked
round, his face was a picture.
"Move aud you're dead." said lu a
voice that unmistakably meant It.
To Allen's utter astonishment it was
tin' Indy passenger, who was standing
and levellug two businesslike revolvers at the elderly gentleman.
"Drop that revolver on Ihe floor be

The revolver was dropped on the
carriage floor.
The lady passenger thereupon walk

all the time, and calmly slipped ou

"Well!" was all Mr. Allen could sny.

How    He   Got   Ilenily    For   n    Storm
When tbe Sky Wns Cleur.
In 1S92 the old man wns on one of his
annual trips to the Herman mineral waters. At Carlsbad he met the moneyed
meu of Europe, and he put together all
the bints that he got from this oue and
thot one, and out of these hints he evolv
ed a theory. He packed his grip aud
started for borne, and the day he landed
in New York he telegraphed for the
heads of his departments to meet him in
"How's business?" he asked cheerfully
as he sat down in the midst of the powwow and within range of 20 telegraph
"Never better: making money hand
over fist," said the managers.
"Cut everything down to the very edge,"
said the old man in a very businesslike
way. "There's a storm brewing. Haul
in sail. Stack up every dollar iu ensh in
tlie vaulis that you can get your hands
on. (lo into the money streets and use
the nnme of 1'. D. Armour for all il is
worth. Get every dollar to be had and
then come hack and tell tne ahout it."
They all believed in their hearts thnt
the old man was getting panicky, but
they did exactly as he said. They procured nearly -J2.000.000.
"That's not nearly enough. Go out and
get more," he directed. "Don't be afraid.
Get every dollar you can nnd get it just
as quickly as you can."
Finally they obtained $-1,000,000 in
ensh, and tills, with securities on hnnd,
footed up $8,000,000.
"Now, maybe we can weather it," said
Mr. Armour, and his preparations were
hardly completed before the crash of
ISilil came.
One of the first things to happen in the
desperate financial stmts wns n run on
the biggest bnnks iu Chicago. One
morning a messenger brought word that
a mob was lined up in front of the Illinois Trust and Savings bnnk nud thnt
the people were demanding their money.
Some of tlie most conservative business
men had lost their heads, and the rush
was cuougii to stagger nny set of bank
officials. Ogden Armour, sou of tlie old
man, was a director in the hank.
"This mast be stopped." said P. D.
"He waited a minute to nrrange the
everyday bunch of roses in the horn vaso
ou his desk," said the mnn w-ho told this
story, "nnd then he snatched up his hat
and started for the' bank."
Mr. Armour mingled with the crowd
ou the sidewalk in front of the bank,
gi^ng first to one and then to another,
pledging Ids own credit for the deposits.
Ho never left the place until the closing
hour, nud by that time the run had stopped. He went back to his office aud
issued a call f»r a meeting of Chicago
business men the next mm ning. Thou
he cabled to London nnd bought hnlf a
million dollars in gold on his own account. He nte a little luncheon nnd
drove out to Armour Institute that afternoon ns usual. He watched the classes
at drill, and then he inquired placidly,
"Is anything wantedV" On his way
home to dinner he stopped nt lhe homes
of his two sons for u little visit. After
dinner he said that hn felt a bit tired
Unit evening and couldn't account, for it.
A Practical Joke Thnt Wns Played
on n I'IioIoki -anlier.
A professional photographer tells a tale
of a practical joke.
One day a young man came to sit for
his likeness. To the ordinary eye he looked likg any other young man. A couple
of plates were exposed, und then the assistant who was operating went into the
darkroom to develop the negatives.
He was goue much longer than u ual
and was heard berating the junior assistant pretty soundly for playing pranks
with the apparatus. When lie returned
to the studio, he asked for another sitting
and apologized for having before UBed
spoiled plates.
This time when he went away to develop he wns heard to utter a slight
scream, but he-reappeared and snid there
was a peculiar effect in tlie negative
which he couldn't account for, and would
the sitter oblige him ngnin.
Once nioro he went to develop. Then
the boll rang violently for the muster, and
the two held a long Confabulation in tlie
dnrkroom together. This time tlie master
tried his hand and went awny to develop.
It was not long before he returned nnd
snid he was sorry not to bo able to get a
satisfactory likeness, but a skull and
crosshones appenred defined on the young
<nan's forehead.
"Bubbish," said the sitter. "My forehead's nil right. Can you see anything
the matter with my foreheadV" Aud ho
peered Into a mirror ns he spoke.
"No, there's nothing thnt I enn see,"
answered tho photographer. "But 1
should bo obliged if you will please go
away and not come here ngain. This
sort of thing is just a wee bit creepy."
Upon this there wns n dreadful scene,
but the upshot wns that Ihe young mnn
had to go nnd up to the present has uot
returned. •    •
The explanation of the matter Is that
tlie young mnn wns a bit of n scientist
and had been playing n joke on the photographer. Bisulplinte of quinine is a

On This Occasion the Bud Mnn Fell
In With n Train Comlnctor Who
V.'us i.. Rrimtiil of Uesoitrces as He
Wns of Discretion.
.Innics Terry, the.terror of the Hed
Rock milling dis::id, hnd a reputation
for trying to ride nn railway trnius without paying ids fare. So when the truin-
tnen saw him get aboard they thought
tlicio would be double.
As the train moved out of the station
aud Iho conductor; Billy McMasters,
Started through the enrs to collect tickets
the Terror, who had dropped into a rear
seat in the inst enr, was very much interested in us much of tlie passing landscape as he could see out of the- car
window in tlio gathering darkness. Finally lhe conductor reached the Terror and
Stretched out his hand for a ticket. But
il wan no use. Mr. Tony kept liis eyes
(listened on the whirling panorama of
lights outside. McMasters began lo realize lliut he was hooked for trouble.
"Ticket, please," snid McMasters.
He got no response. Becoming slightly
annoyed, lie placed his band on tlie ghoul*,
der of the Tenor. That worthy then
turned uud seeing tlie conductor's outstretched hand grasped it heartily, exclaiming:
"Howdy?   I'm glnd to see yer."
McMasters, losing palicuce. shouted:
"Where's your ticket? How far nre you
"Aw," snid lhe Terror, "is fat all?
Why, I'm a "rrii' of t'e president of this
here pike, 'n I ride tor nuttiu.    See, t'nt
"Well, It don't go, cither," said McMasters. "You either pny your fare or
get off." And he raised his hnnd and
pulled the signal rope, notifying the engineer to slim the train.
Tiie train stopped, hut Mr. Terry made
no motion to get off.
"Here, you hoys." called McMasters
to a couple of hinketnen who hnd beeu
standing near lu anticipation of hostilities.
But ns they approached tho Terror rose
fioni his sent, whipped oul two revolvers
and issued nn ultimatum nn the spot.
"Now, you loek here," snid -lames
Terry, "1 want ter put yer nex' to t'e
fnc' t'at I'm goin ter lied Uock, nbout
BO miles from here. Where's ine ticket?
flight here iu me two mils, 'n if yer gc
ter nny queer business I'll put ye fellers
on t'e Upper Saudusky iu two shakes.
Conductor McMasters was a good
strategist. He raw nt a glance (lmt it
would he n needless risk of life ni'd hlood
to curry 'Terry's intrenched position hy a
frontal attack. He therefore reached
fur the signal cord nud started the train,
al the same lime waving his baud to the
arriving re-enforcements to follow him.
There wus an immediate session of tlie
board of strntcgy iu tlie baggage enr nt
which a plan of campaign was mapped
out, nltliough ench member of the board
declined lo he interviewed ul the close of
the session. The Terror meanwhile remained standing witli his hack to the
window* nnd his eyes searching Iho situation before him *to repel nny attack from
the front.
Wheu the train stopped nt the next
sttlll.'in, Hollygi-ove. n figure moved
stealthily along the simian platform from

made a quick motron and before the Terror could realize his position had shut
tho window hnlf way down aud fastened
it so that the bottom of the sash passed
across the small of the Terror's back,
holding him as in a vise.
Conductor McMasters had provided
himself with a flat stick which made an
excellent paddle, aud lie soon was giving the Terror the worst paddling ho
ever bad in his life. A brakeman came
along and joined hi the flank attack with
an enfilading fire from another paddle.
The Terror's pistols were nbout as much
use as a divining rod is along the Chicago river.
lluder this terrific punishment from the
rear the Terror soon capitulated and
dropped his revolvers to the platform.
So the attack ceased, and the rough man
from Red Uock was allowed to draw hia
head in and pay his fare, although he
protested that it was a swindle to make
a man pay his fare who was compelled to
stand up tho rest of liis ride owing to

itoaced to ill health, and in not a few
instances are direct symptoms cf kidney trouble. These, added to the severe pains in the back which tfecom-
_ any tho disease, make the life of
the sufferer ono of abject misery. Oue
such sufferer was Mr. Darius Dean, of
Jordan, Ont. Mr. Bean in an interview wilh a reporter recently gave
bis experience as follows :—"I am a
saw and grist mill operator, and naturally a strong man; but thc life of
a miller is a hard one, with long
hours of labor and frequent exposure.
Soino years ago as the result of this
exposure I was afflicted with kidney
trouble, and although I spent much
money in various -emedies I did not
lind a cure un il 1 'as persuaded to
try Dr. Willia 1   ,ik Bills.   In the
autumn of 189_ trouble began to
assume un aggra\„Ltd form. I suffered from most severe pains in the
back, and a feeling of drowsiness
and yet so severe was the pain that
many a night I scarcely closed my
eyes. My appetite was poor, I suffered from headaches, lost flesh, was
miserable and wholly unlit for work.
It was while in this condition that
J was advised to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and procured three boxes.
Before I had Unjshed the third box
I felt much better, and I then procured a half dozen boxes more. I
used all these, but before they were
all gone I felt lhat my health was
fully restored. In tho interval since
then I have had just one slight return of the trouble, and Dr. Williams
Pink Pills soon drove this out, and
my health since has been tho very
best. I have gained much in weight,
cat and sleep well and consider myself as healthy a person as there is
in the county; and the credit for this
I feel is entirely due to Dr. Williame'
Fink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills increase
tho supply and the richness of the
blood, and in thjs way cure plsysical
and funct tonal weaknesses. Most
other medicines simply act upon tho
symptoms of the disease, hence wheu
tho medicine is discontinued the patient is soon as wretched ns ever.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills go directly
to the root of the trouble and cure
to stay cured. Hence it is unwise lo
waste money in experiments wilh
other medicine. These pills aro sold
by all dealers or will be sent post
paid at 50 cents a box or six boxes
for $2.50 hy addressing lhe Dr. Williams'  Medicine Co.,  Brockville, fO»t.

A novel explanation of lhe cause of

one of lhe Inhabitants.
"Do you know what makes thunder'/" the Nova Scotlnn Inquired of his

and I call It a pretty good one."
"I should like to hear It," was the
diplomatic reply.
"Well," said the host slowly, "my
idea is this: You know we hear nbout
the air circulating nnd circulating all
the time. My notion Is thnt the pure
air from above comes down here In
summer and gets foul with all the
smoke and dirt and grease, and then
the heat drives It up again into the
clouds, and when It gets up there It's
pressed on all round by the clouds coming together, and it explodes! That's
my theory. Of course," he added, with

There never wufc, and never will be, a
universal panocea, in one remedy, for all ills
to which fli'sh is heir—tho very nature of
mnny curatives being such that were the
germs of oilier nnd differently seated diseases rooted in the system of the patient—
what would relieve one ill in turn would aggravate the other. Wo havo, however, in
Quinine Wine, when obtainable in a sound,
unadulterated state, a remedy for mnny ana
grievous ills. By its gradual and judicious
use the frailest systems are led mlo convalescence nnd strength by the influence which
Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives.
It relieves tho drooping spirits of those with
whom a chronic fitato of morbid despondency and lack of intere-t in life is a disease,
and, by tranquilizing tlie nerves, disposes to
bound and refreshing sloop—imparls vigor
to the action of tlie blood, which, being
stimulated, courses throughout tho veins,
strengthening tho heaithy animal functions
of tho system, thsfoby making activity a
necessary result, strengthening the frame,
and giving life to thc digestive organs, which
naturally demand increased substance—result, improved appetite. Northrop _ Lyman,
of Toronto have given to the public their
superior Quinine Wine ut the usual rate, and,
gauged by the opinion of scientists, this
wine approaches nearest perfection of any in
the market.   All druggists sell it.

A Cnrlonn Combat.
A traveler In South Africa witnessed
not long since n singular combat. lie
was musing one morning, with his eyes
on tlie ground, when he noticed a caterpillar crawling along nt a rapid rate.
I'ui'sulng blm was a host of small
black ante.
Being quicker in their movements,
'be ants would catch up with the caterpillar, and ono would mount his back
and bite lilm. I'tluslug, tlie caterpillar
would turn his head and bite and kill
:.ls tormentor. Alter slaughtering a
dozen or more of bis persecutors the
caterpillar showed signs of fatigue.
Tbe ants made a combined attack. Betaking himself lo n stalk of grass, the
■ nterplllar climbed up the tree tall first,
followed b.v tlio ants. As one approached he seized It lu his jnws and threw It
■ il' Ihe stalk.
Tlie ants, seeing that the caterpillar
had too strong a position for them to
overcome, resorted to strategy. They
begun sawing through tbe grnss stalk.
In a few minutes the stalk fell, ami
hundreds of ants pounced iron the
''alien caterpillar. He wns killed nt
tiee, and the victors marched off in
treat triumph, leaving tlio foe's body
ipon the field.

It took me twenty years to perfect

it, but there is no guesswork about
it now. As sure as an engineer knows
that he can pump sieam into his boilers and make his engine go, I know
that I can pump electricity into your

There's no guesswork about the engineer's task, as he has learned his
trade. 1 have learned irr'ne in the
same way—by experience, and know
what I can do.
If you are broken down from hard
work or any other reason ; if your

have tried in vain to cure with drugs
I will cure you first and you can pay
me afterward.
