LIQUOR DRINKERS CURED Easily, Safely, Absolutely.
AT HOME.    With no loss of Time or Labor.
There is an enl.lrened aid now which takes hold of a man instantly.
"it'll i dulliti g a drinker it gives him almost iiiiiiidiatelv tbe snap of
newlifeantl p„wer—let* tire Himliitlil of lio| e inm hi; tonl at unce and
eels his mind into operation with ali its lie.t intelligence — a prompt result of effects on tl e netve., st< niaeh and w'lole I o Iv which are qniek
antl marvelous. While al tbis point the cure lias only begun, ibe encouragement ii eo great that ptobably no medical Woik (quids this in
satisfaction to a patient.
With ibis help against the drink habit any man who wants to lift fiom
h's life the handicap of liquor tisinn i an do t-o wfth iiiimediate re-tilts.
This guaranteed treatment is within teach of all. Convenient term' can
be arranged sati.factory to any one who is at all rta onable, Ibotub, as
all people understand, it does nt com) are with tbe wo tide., quark
cures advertised at so much per p.teka.e, or "Free", etc. Il i* a different
matier from all tbis to perfect a cotir e of thorough. . pecial, personal
treatment that will teally do tbe work and cure forever. It is a .eriotis
undertaking and requites a high form of scientific professional w irk. All
the different kinds nf cases are li imllcd under guaranteed results. Only
.kill that is developed to the high.Bt can do iu. Only professional fees
can pay for the time it requires, though they are made moderate "ixl convenient for anybody. The n ethods of practice used in this work has cost
years of time, vast study and expensive experiments. The originator, Dr,
William H. Saund^r., had attracteil wide notice for his works on Neivous
diseases long before perfecting this treatment. And nill nothing but care
and personal attention to canes today makes it possible for him lo accomplish tbe absolu e cures wbicb he guarantees. So tbe reader will see
this treatment means thorough scientific, proles, ional attention. Hnt it
also means results that are absolutely certain. The splendid lirst effects
on a man are alone worth tlie entire cost of treatment.
This treatment can he given WITH or WITHOUT the knowledge of
the patient and can he placed in any of his foods or liquids that be utes,
and beint; colorless and*tasteless, it does its work so silently and quickly
that Ihe drunkard is, reclaimed even sigain.t his will and wi bout his
knowledge and co-operation. The wife mated for years loa husband addicted to (his curse will wonder if curing her husband by ber ow n efforts
can be true. "Is it possible that there is such a gloiiotis opportunity?"
_he will ask. And thousands of wives who have put it to tbe test and re-
j >ice in the reclamation of dieir spouses who seemed lost to all sense of
self-respect, generosity and manliness will trumpet out to the world,
"Yes, il. is true". Onr treatment is purelv vegetable, contains no narcotics, opiates, poisons or mineials. We ti-e no hypodermic Injecion of gold,
nor any dangerous compound. It can be taken at home without any loss
or detention from business. It. stimulates the nervous system at once,
increases the appetite, and affords perfect rest at night. It acts directly
upon the stomach, builds up the whole system, eliminates nil trace nf liquor from the body and leaves the patient in the same condition as if liquor
had never been taken.

husband is Ihe worst ca-'e in the community, we are more anxious to cure
him.   Read tbe following:

Mr. J. Cnstell Hopkins, editor
of "Ciiiiiid.-i." bus recently been
pointing out our need of u fuller
knowledge of this, our nn.tive, or
adopted, nud beloved country.
While Catindfi. is beiii"1 npprecm-
ied nbrond, it will be well for us
to become fn,niiiin.r with its pnst,
filled with confidence in its resources nnd strength, nnd conscious
of its national and material development.
Mr. Hopkins points out that
while the grent mass of people
in our Dominion look with ,-nl-
niiration and deserved respect
upon the splendid annals of the
Mother-land, her wars upon sen
and shore, her heroes in history
and slatecraftantl literature antl
every brunch of progress; the".Dominion, with its four hundred
years of picturesque history is
passed over as a matter of coin-.
pni-ativeunimportance and little
It is also shown that to the
young men of Canada a knowledge of its history nnd progress
is not only desirable but necessary. To understand the business
situation of today information
concerning the fiscal, financial
and commercial development of
the Dominion is exceedingly use
ful. To comprehend the posit im
political parties, the principles
and practice of national adniiu-
istaation, a knowledge of our
country's st niggles is essential.
It is not by regretting what is
irreparahle that true work is to
be done, but by making the best
of whnt we are. Life, like war, is
a series of mistakes. Ile is the
best who wins most splendid victories by the retrieval of mis-

How tho Dispute Aiose.
The boundary dispute takes us    a
fong way  baci..      One hundred    and
ii.-ly-l\vo .ears ago a ltussian     ex-
■i lorer named Behring accomplished a
It'eat  to  whi.h  we now owe the present problem.    He led an expedition
|to   the   nor.th~ca.tern   extremity   of
-ibe* ia,    crossed   a   narrow    strait,
I which he named the Behring Strait,
und l cached thc Continent of America at thc north-Westerly extremity.
JI his new country he named Al-ak-
shak, or "mainland," and that word
lias been corrupted into Alaska.
Uehiing was followed by fur hunters,
who found abuiulun.e of sea. otter,
seal, and beaver. After these eame
the great Russian-American lur
Company, the ollicers of which for
(>8 years were the lords of the North
in that part of the world.
Meanwhile the British had invaded
ffthe district from the east, and were
'exploring end occupying the country
through i .'. agency of the North-
West J.raci_.g Company, whoa; operations extended from the Arctii
Ocean to the Gulf of California, i,
soon Le.i.me necessary for Great
Britain and Russia to fix the limits
| of th-i.- icspecthe territories, whicli
they attempted to do by thc livatj
1 of L8~i5. This treaty is the basis oi
the present controversy. Its alleged
inaccuracies and ambiguities ha\e
kept the boundary (pieslion unsetll.-u
rltiiing more than three-quarters of a
century. Jn 1867 when the United
States bought Alaska from Russia
for §7,"200,000, tho Russian side of
ihe controversy passed over to the
Republic, and the same year saw the
birth of the Dominion of Canada,
whi.h eventually took over the Biitish side of the ease.
What Is the Coast?
Mnny interesting points have been
raised in connection with this particular treaty, but the most important,
so far as the boundary i.s concerned,
is "What constitutes the coast of the
the ocean?" Under article 111. tho
boundary line wns to follow the
s tininit of the mountains situated
parallel to the coast. By articlo IV.
it was provided that wherever the
mountain.1, weie more than fen
leaguCB (30 mile.) from the coast
tho boundary shall follow the windings of tho coast, but never exceeding ten leagues therefrom. Now .several questions aiise iu this connection, Hoes the coast constitute the
oiilerfiiiiec if islands or docs it begin with tho mainland? If it i° con-
lined to the mainland, docs the coast
follow all the bays and inlets to
their head even when that would carry the boundary far beyond the
range of mountains? If it docs,
some very remarkable results are
obtained. The l.ynn Canal, which
at its widest outlet is only four
miles and three-quarters wide, would
cairy the boundary 70 miles inland,
uiul then 80 miles beyond tidal waters. Another inlet, Glacier Bay, is
only throo nnd a half miles wide, nnd

the boundary follows the shores of
these inlets as though ihey were the
Shores of the ocean. The effect of
this contention of sustained would/lie
to (!e:iy Canada any outlet to tho
I'nciiic along four or live bundled
infos of coast where it has been specially agreed that there shall be free
and uninterrupted traffic to and from
1he interior. It was stipulated by
l.is.ii in the Treaty of JS'2_ that
Russians should always have the
pthilcgc of resorting to British hur-
liors in case of necessity, yet, under
the reading of the United States authorities, there are to be no l.ritish
harbors whatever.
I.aw nml -gage.
The determination of the coast line
is a legal Question on which there
has been much controversy. Many
iHltholiiias might bo quoted to .how
that where the coast i.s identified
with bays it is customary to draw
tin imaginary line front ono promontory to the other. The law of some
of the .States of the neighboring Union is speei'lc on ti la point. Nome
of them enact thnt "when an inlet or
arm of tho sea does not exceed two
marine leagues in width (six mat ine
miles) bet wren its headlands, a
straight line from one heac'land to
the other is equivalent to the   shore
line." And this \i,*w has been sus-
telnctl by the Sttproino Court ul" the I
Ci ited Stales, whi-h has de lar tl '
that "bu,\s wholly within tho lori-
tory nf a nnti in, nnd hot excecdi.ig
si. nilm at the mouth, are part cf
the te lit.oiy of Iho nation in which
they lie." In this connection it i.s
onlv fair to point out that the Lynn
Canal has three ocean outlets caused by tho is'ands that lie at its
mouth, end that though no singli
outlet aggregates six miles, they all
com1 Intel make t i>lit miles. It has,
however, always been judi inly held
that in such a case each island is
considered as part of the shore,
'Ihe Area In Dispute.
So far as Canada is concerned, the
main contention has been for an outlet to the sea. Indeed the Canadian
Government, offered on a recent occasion to abandon the claim to the
greater portion of tho territory, including Dyea and Skaguay, provided
it was conceded that Canada had the
rieht to Pyramid Harbor, which
would afford it a highway into the
Int.Oi ior. This proposal was declined     We (all bac'v, therefore, on   the
territorial lights originally claimed,
less thc important concessions made
in the new arrangement. Altogether
the territory and inland water in dis-
pute is about 320 miles from north
to south, and 14 to 70 miles wide,
It is n territory which is said to be
rich in gold deposits. It has very
valuable fishing grounds.
Wh.tt. it. Means to Us.
But still more important is the
fact, that, according to the United
States contention, it burs the way
between the Canadian Vukon and
the sea. This renders it possible for
the United States to control the
natural entrance to Canada's important gold fields. Wc have now
in that far-off country, close to the
Arcti- Circh', a city in which twelve
millions of Canadian capital have
heen invested. Dawson City is now
a fixture, with all the adjuncts of a
growing metropolis. Its trade and
that of the surrounding country,
whi'-h is serviceable for agriculture
ns well ns mining, has to go throu'gh
lintel Stales channels, and, to be
subjected to all the inconveniences
and expenses of pasting through a
foreign country. In a military sense

3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds.^^^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's

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

Jok-N un Lovers.
The opinion has been expressed
that one reason why there nre so
many old bachelors in Ontario is because of the derision that a man
meets with when it is known thut he
is about to muny and the ordeal o.
going away in a shower of riee, perhaps with a "shivaree" as a welcome
home. In the cilios it is not so bad,
for people can get married und few
know it. In country plae s practical
jokers aro always getting in their
fine wtirk on young fellows who go
courting. Ihe following is from The
Uxbiidgo Journal, und illustrates
the point:
"The boys in I'll a country dearly
love a joke, espe lally if it happens
to be on soin_ y.ung fellow from a
distance who invades their neighborhood on a courting expedition. This
wns the case recently in the l'ine
Grove nei hborhood, where a young
man from town hud the wheels of his
buggy chunged and his 1 ncs crossed.
Hut a young mnn from the country
(Glen Major district) fared worse in
town on fair night, his horse antl rig
having i»een appropriated in toto. It
was rotu-ned to the hotel shed before morning, but the young mnn
and his girl were under the necessity
of hunting up sleeping quarters with
friends in town at a lute hour.
These practical jokes sometimes result unpleasantly for all patties concerned, and it would be well if thc
funny people would hnd somo less
annoying way of exhibiting their

the i.real _ Wi.l.
The passjge througli t'.io Unid.n
dies i.i' two unarmed l.iis_iaii toi-
pedo-boat destroyers is an incident
apparently insignificant in ituolf,
lint, viewed in i.Ii_ light ot' tlroat
Biitain's traditional distrusl of Hus-
. i t, und under the magnifying glasn
of irn.s,.onsi .le altirmisl -. it appears to lie almost a menace to the
existence ol the Empire. I is Majesty's representative at Constantinople
has protested to the I'm tc, who is
the guatdlan of the Black Sea, and
though no answer has been returned,
any possible ex| lanation has been already anticipated and discounted.
The action of the Russians was an
open violation of the Treaty of Paris. England assumes her attitude of
viituous indignation, and Kussia
quietly pursues her policy,
Salisbur.'a I'linmus slang.
When England and Franco undertook to uphold the tottji ing Turkish
Empire, and threw themselves upon
Itussio. in the Crimean War, the former country, as Lord Salisbury has
since said, "put its money on the
wrong horse." However, the "wrong
horse" was first under the wiie.
When the war was about at an end,
Lord Lyndhurst vigorously declared
that "there could be no place without first destroying Hussia's Black
Sea licet, and laying prostrate the
foi tilications which protected it."
Therefore the great, docks and
defences of Sebastopol, designed in
1830 by an English engineer, wero
demolished, and the Treaty of I'aris
whi.h concluded the conflict expressly
provided that the fortress should nott
he rebuilt a id that the Black Sea
should be free from the warships of
every power. The key to the Mack
Se.v is the Dardanelles, swinging ostentatiously at the Sultan's guide.
Russia's eye has ever been  upon it.
First Violation of Treaty.
Prince Gortchakoff, whose ambition
it was to be tho liie imarck of Kussia,
s.tw his opportunity in 1870 when
Franco antl Germany were at war.
lie issued a curt notification of tho
Czar 8 intention to abrogate that
clause of the Treaty of I'aris which
forbade the rebuilding of Sebastopol.
France was in no position to object;
England could not but liie a formal
protest. Thus Sebastopol is stronger than ever 1 -fore.
An Aiicg-ii llreucli of iiiitli.
By the treaty of Berlin in 1878,
which made peace between Kussia
and Turkey after their second con-
niet, all thi' powers were rewarded
for their kindly forbearance. It was
then that. Britain got Cyprus, while
the llli.ee Sea was made formally
what it already Was geographically,
a Russian lake. No restrictions wero
removed, however, from the pa.sage
of the Dardanelles. These slraits
were to remain inviolate. Tho
Czar's land frontier was extended to
embrace Kars, a port of |Batoum. It
was stipulated thut Batoum should
remain unfortified, but Russia soon
found occasion to disregard lhat provision. This violation formed the
text for other charges of bad faith;
but it. is said now that, there was a
secret understanding among the powers at the time of the treaty that
Batoum might bo protested.
