The old adage "Union is Strength'' has
assuredly been acted upon in recent years
hy both Capital and Labor, In every
civilized country vast combinations have been
made and the products of mines, forests
and waters are now bought up-nnd put on
the market by a combination of trusts that
represents fabulous wealth. Oire of the
mightiest of these Trusts is the United
Slntes Steel Corporation whose workmen
to the number of 85.oco are'flow outon
strike. The cause of the dispute is briefly
this. At a meeting of Mr. J Pferpont Morgan and Pre*. Schwab on the one side representing the Steel Trust, arid Theodore
J. S. Schaffer, representing the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel and Tin
Workers a scale of wages was settled between the two. But when the paper* were
brought forward the Steel Corporation reused to sign for two non-union Mills,
ur hf signing for them the Non-Union
rntn would be compelled to join the Union.
Schaffer says that the Non-Union men
were kept   out of  work     until   they signed
papers promising   not   to   join the   Union.
Hence the strike. The Federation of Labor
'and the window glass Union have promised
every jwjsible aid. The outcome of this
struggle it is difficult, nay impossible, to predict. The Trust says that it will Hght to
a finish. Schaffer declares that there will
be no more conferences with the Trust until the latter asks for one. He regards this
as a supreme test of Trades Unionism when
opposed to Trusts. The influence ei both
is stupendous and their acts are being watched with anxious interest by the Industrial

There is every reason to anticipate a substantial increase in the gold output in B.C.
this year. The Cariboo deep-levels after
several years of costly and extensive development, are about to make renurns to their
shareholders, and large wash-upa may be
looked for. The Ymir and Camp McKinley
districts will give a better account of themselves. Atlin is expected to yield $1,000,000
and upward. From the Omenica placers
and the beach-washings at Wreck Bay larger outputs are anticipated, in addition to

Mr. Juo. Williams, wbo spent tbe
past year at the Ward mine, in the
Horsefly country, gives a very idowini!
account of the prospects of that section
:ih an agricultural aiul mining district.
British Columbia ie a province of hu.1i
an immense area that tbe inhabitants
of one section mav knew very little of
the natural capacities of another. So
»ay information concerning other sections ol the province ia of interest.
The Horsefly country ia about 100
miles square, being capable of holding
• large number ol nuttier*. It ia situated at an elevation oi 2,400 feet, 400
(eet lower than Clinton, Ita capacities
aa an agricultural taction are wonderful ; cropi grow moat luxuriantly without irrigation. Blue-joint and timothy
grow naturally to the height uf a man's
head; hundreds ol tout war*cut while
cutting a read, 18 miles long 'rom Hob.
xon's quarta mill. Oats and barley always ripen; wheat also does very well.
Vegetables also grow to an enormous
site. Potatoes planted on the 25th of
May weighed 1% pounds in a little more
than two months. Some fully developed specimens tipped the scales at 5
lbs. All other vegetables do equally
well. From these tans it is evident
that the country described is a (ine locality for stock raising.
With regard to the mining outlook,
the Horsefly country ib well known on
account of Hobson,s workings and the
Ward mine. On Hobaon's leases a
quart* mill is required, as tbe gravel,
having become hardened or cemented
by the action ot different solutions, requires the .iinio treatment as quartz.
At the Ward mine, however, the grave!
ia free, and is worked without belni;
crushed. As the formation In the
Horsefly proper is of a volcanic origin,
the auriferous gravel quite plainly has
been deposited there troai another section. Acting on this theory, th* Dukar
Co. have occupied 25 hydraulic leases
in ■ slate aad granite formation, at a
point 80 miles up th* Horsefly Kiv*r.
The prospect* obtained by ih*m, averaged 60 cents a yard.
From th* above description, it will
be seen that tbe Horsefly connlry, will,
at no very distant date, take a front
place   among  British Columbia's rich

How Ornament* I'or the Home Can
ii_ Made if the Beelnner Iln» a Little Ingenuity ""il Patience—Coat of
the lluby'a Hand.
Few people realize tlie pleasure and
Instruction that can lie gained from
making plaster easts. It is inexpensive,
aud the utensils required are found in
every household. A cast of the baby's
Chubby hand or foot or, In fact, a east
of any kind Is not only a delight, but
nn ornament. The great secret in making successful plaster easts lies in not
getting excited. Care should be used
wheu getting the plaster that It be
plaster of paris nnd that It be bougbt
from some shop where it is sure to lie
fresh, as that which Is obtnlned from
a drug store is apt to be stale and will
uot set properly.
A few quarts of plaster should be
sufficient for a lirst attempt. A bucket
ol' water, a tin basin, a tin spoon, some
oil or soapsuds and, if possible, some
common modeling clay and a bottle of
Ink are all the materials required. A
mold is lirst taken of the object, and
when this is filled it gives the cast.
There are two kinds of casts—those
where only part of the object is showu,
the other part resting ou a tile or
plaque, anil those that show the whole
obji ct or are in the "round." The hand
is about as simple au object as can be
found and is more interesting than
most things. As tlie hand on the tile
is the easiest, it would be well to start
with tbat. Place a sheet of paper on
n table and then grease the baud thoroughly with the oil or thick soapsuds
to prevent the plaster from sticking to
the skin when removing the mold.
When i he hand i.s placed In the position wanted, lill the spaces underneath
it. where it does not touch the table,
with clay, or if clay cannot be obtained
use putty. It is convenient to make a
small wall of clay around the object to
prevent the plaster from running, but
it is not necessary. Put about a quart
of cold water in the basin and pour the
plaster into it, stir quietly and keep the
spoon under water to avoid making
bubbles. Use enough plaster to make
it the consistency of batter. If n little
salt is added or hot water instead of
cold Is used, the plaster will harden or
set more quickly. A small quantity of
ink or any coloring matter will make It
easier to distinguish the mold from thc
cast aud will also make It more brittle
or rotten and easier to separate the
two. Pour the plaster over the hand,
taking care that there nre no bubbles,
until it is nbout half an inch thick. It
•will require a few minutes for It to set
and is ready to lift off when It cau be
scratched with a knife. It is easier to
turn the band and mold up and lift
the hand out than to take the mold olT
the hand. If any plaster has ruu under
the lingers, cut it away with a dull
Should the hand not come out easily,
Working the lingers separately will often loosen them. The mold should be
allowed to dry a few hours and then be
tilled with white plaster, the same consistency as was used for the mold. A
wall of clay about an Inch high will
have to be built around the edge of the
mold, which when filled gives thc tile
for the cast to rest on. Let the whole
dry and then chip the mold away with
a knife. The mold, being of a different
color, can be readily distinguished from
tho cast.
In making the mold for a cast In the
round, nfter the band has been oiled,
elnk It to about half an Inch in a bed
of plaster, leaving about half an inch
for thickness. .Make the rim smooth
and, when hardened, oil. Now cover
the upper half with plaster. When set,
this should knock apart easily and the
hand be lifted out.
Another way, but a more difficult
one, after putting the hand half way
In the plaster aud before this has dried,
is to put n thin strong string around all
the edges of the fingers, letting the
ends come out nt the wrists. When
tbe hand Is entirely covered with plaster and before it has hardened, pull the
string out. which cuts it In two. The
manner of filling both these kinds of
molds Is the same. Oil and tie the two
halves tightly together and fill with
plaster, let harden and lift the molds
Only one cast can be made from
molds like these. At shops where plaster casts are made and sold and a
number of the same casts are wanted
a gelatin mold Is made. Being elastic,
it Is easily pulled off without harm to
the cast and still retains Its shape and
can be filled any number of times. The
yellow or Ivory finish that Is given to
many casts Is obtained by using white
shellac, which can be had already
mixed from a pnlntshop. By milling
oil paint any desired color can be obtained. Rubbing witli a cloth gives a
high polish. A bronze finish can be
given by coating with a mixture of
white wax dissolved In turpentine, to
which bronze or green paint has been
A line set of casts, which would Interest children and could be used In the

Why Not Teach It n Hallway Men Make

Slap geography in its natural state
is the dry est subject the school boy
encounters until he reaches trigonometry, says The Toronto Ulobe. It
is better now than in the good old
days, wheu its study meant the
learning of a series of songs without
music, setting forth the names of
capes, rivers, counties und capitals.
Itailroading nnd the kindergarten
suggest expedients by which the
study might be made al once simple
and pleasant. The construction of a
railway time table, which in the finished state is almost as complicated
us trigonometry il self, is effected by
means ni pieces of siring ami common brass pins. A sheet of paper
tlie size of a blackboard is stretched
along one side of a room. It is divided by horizontal und vertical lines
Into a vast number of little oblongs.
Each vertical line represents a minute, and each horizontal line u mile.
In the left margin are printed the
names of, the stations, each at its
proper mile from the terminus. Along
the top of ilie sheet ure written lhe
hours of the day. To build a time
table, say for lhe Toronto and
Hamilton line, wilh twenty trains
each way, would require forty pieces
of string and more than a paper of
pins. A train. we will suy, is to
leave each end of the line at 8 a.
m. ami make the run in fifty minutes,
crossing midway and making no
stops. Strings are stretched from
the intersect ions of the vertical line
marked VIII., and the horizontal
lines opposiie Toronto and Hamilton, crossing half-way up the sheet,
terminating al 1 lie opposite ends of
the eight-fifty vertical line. If, there
are stops to be made little jogs arc
made in the lino of the string by
pinning it vertically opposiie the
station for the number of minutes
tlie train lies there. The faster the
train the more vertical the ignominious little piece of siring lhat absolutely controls its course.
Why should nol geography be
taught by means of outline maps,
large or small, and materials as
simple nnd inexpensive us those employed by great railways'.' Thu
teacher could easily build up thi'
map before the pupils' eyes, or they
could do it themselves. "Rivers
might be represent id by narrow ribbons fastened down by pins bearing
on little paper banners the names
of the towns Ihey pass. .Strings of
different colors would answer for
railway systems. Pasteboard tri-
nngles would suggest capes; rough
outlines of cork would make excellent mountain ranges; bits of gilt
would servo for gold regions; characteristic leaves for forests, samples
of grain for agricultural belts, bits
of net for fishing grounds, typical
faces for different races of men—
hundreds of devices would occur to
the teacher lo make the subject graphic, or if lhe suggestions came from
the pupils so much tin' bettor, The
possibilities of ihe pumpkin slightly
flattened at tho poles and already divided by parallels or longitude, as
nu experimental globe on which c.ori-
tinents, oceans. cable and steamboat routes could be traced, or pasted on rainy Fridays, are almost too
alluring. Capitalists employ sueh
means as these when they desire to
convey a knowledge of geography to
members of Parliament. Why should
nof teachers adopt the same plan in
teaching boys and girls?

An   Incident. In   the   Lire   of  Mr. Erneet
Mr. Edmund B. Le Roy, inspector
Canada Permanent & Western Canada Mortgage Corporation, related
an interesting incident in the life of
Mr. Ernest Seton-Thompson, the fnm-
ous writer on animal life, a day or
two ago. It appears that some years
ago young Solon, as he was then
called, spent his summer vacations
iu the woods, where he studied tlie
characteristics of animal life. This
year he Was in the neighborhood of
Cnbocnnk, where Mr. Lc Hoy was
then keeping a store. One day a wild-
looking, unkempt young man came
into the store and purchased supplies. He said his name was Seton
and that he was hunting for bird
skins. When he hud been around the
neighborhood about a month Mr. Le
liny asked him one day where he
lodged. "Oh," replied the eccentric
young fellow, "1 go asleep wherever
I happen to he when 1 am tired. I
,'iist roll myself up in my blanket."
Mr. Le Roy remarked at the time to
friends near that this young nmn
would be heard from some day. Later in the summer young Scion walked into Mr. Le Roy's store and told
him that he was dead broke and that
lie wanted to go to Toronto. Mr. I_
Roy offered to loan him the amount
ef his fare, but Seton said, "No, 1
will sell you my rubber blankot for
$8." Mr. Le Hoy bought the blanket
and it was such a gooil one that lie
still has it in his possession. Lt^ter
still, when Mr. Ernest Seton-Thompson became famous as the result of
his work it struck Mr. Le Roy one
day that, perhaps that young fellow
Seton might be the now-famous nr-
list and author. lie penned a. note
to the author, sending it to his New
York address, asking him if lie was
not the man who had sold nim tlie
rubber blanket. A few days i go Mr.
Lo Hoy received the following reply
from the brilliant author, who was
then stopping at the Auditorium,
i hieago:
My dear sir,—Yes. 1 am the nan
who sold you lhe rubber blanket in
1885. I nm yours very sincerely, Ernest Seton-Thomps in.

'These trees were selected by llr.

added a number of other sorts which
from       Canadian     experience were

grass. This was the top of a prominent cliff, where the trees Would be
partly protected from the winds, and
readily seen from many different
points. At this place several thousand trees were plained. Three other
sites for tree planting were selected
near the house of the superintendent,
the planting of all of which was
completed before Dr. Saunders' party
left. A large garden belonging to the
cel ral station was partly filled with
over 2.000 specimens, among which
are included a number of .arieties

Early in the thirties there enme
also a visitation of frogs in Canada.
The frogs came down wilh showers,

not all. The continual raining, with
tho blazing sun and decaying frogs

_ Snaka Htory From Niagara Falls, Ont..
Well Vouched   For.
George J. Howard, cashier of the
Bank of Niagara, and Ethan Howard, his brother, both of Niagura
Falls, Ontario, had an exciting experience on a recent Sunday, and one
they will not forget in a hurry. They
spent the day exploring Foster's
Flats und the territory below that
famous locality. They had with
grent difficulty gone down the river
from Poster's Flats, skirting the
rough and wild edge of the river, and
intending to climb a bank at a spot
farther down. The walking was very
hard, and progress slow. When they
had gone a short distance from the
Flats they ran into a den of rattlesnakes. 'The first they knew of their
danger was the rattling of a large
snake immediately in front of them.
The men grabbed clubs and despatched the reptile, but hardly was this
one killed when others were seen in
the neighborhood. Seven snakes in
all were seen, and of these four were
klTled by tlie Howards, the body of
one and the rattles of others being
taken home as evidence of the fact
that rattlesnakes slill exist on the
.Niagara frontier.
Almost anything could live in the
very wild region below Foster's
Plats, or on lhe Pints themselves. It
is by far the oldest and most unknown ground within hundreds of
miles. Reports of rattlers still living there come now and then from
travelers, but. no story in years,
vouched for by people of well-known
reputation, ii^ regard to these
snakes, has been heard. They report
that they were very much surprised
to lind the snakes, and that there are
undoubtedly mnny more in the vicinity. They consider it unsafe for
a man to panetratc to the mysteries
of the gorge beyond the Flats without thick leggings on. The snakes
killed were rather large, three of
them being over three feet in length,
and the fourth being somewhat smaller. They had no weapons, save those
grabbed on the spot, otherwise they
would have got the seven. Nine rnt-
tls were found in one snake, and
Hi. se, with tlie skin of lhe biggest
snake and ■ rattles, form an interesting reminiscence of an exciting
Sunday morning encounter within a
mile of Niugara Fulls.

A Toronto man has received notice
from the city of Hamilton that unless he goes up and cuts any weeds
growing on the street on which he
owns property he will render himself
liable to a fine of S_0. We gather
from the printed notice received that
Hamilton is chiefly troubled with the
following noxious weeds: "Ox-eye
daisy, wild oats, rag weed, burdock,
wild clover or BWeet clover, marsh-
mallow, milk weed or cotton weed,
dandelion, narrow dock, golden rod,
yarrow, niiillen, wild lettuce and
thistles of all kinds." We would advise Hamilton to pave the streets as
a sure cure for weeds.   '

Hosts of people do themselves irrepanible harm and

Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is a protest against these old-

other medicines you ever used, Dr. Chase's Nerve Food forms
new red corpuscles in the blood and creates new nerve tissue
to replace that destroyed by overwork and disease. It is impossible to obtain a more effective treatment for nervous disorders than Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, because it gradually anil

Sam Derrocbers Cured of Diabetes in
18'JS—Had It For Over Five
Years—His Recent Letter Proves
That His Cure Still Holds Good.
Quebec, July 29.—(Special)—Sam
Derrochers, of Iho Fortress City was
cured of Diabetes by Dodd's Kidney
Pills in 1898. His case is well
known here, it having been published
in the papers at the time, and a
great deal of attention was drawn
to Dodd's Kidney I'iils on its account.
Diabetes, however, is known to bo
au incurable disease, and many of
Hie more sceptical of Quebec citizens
expressed doubt as to the permanency of the euro. These doubts may
now be set at rest. Mr. Derrochers
himself attests that in three yenrs ho
has had no sign of  Diabetes'  return.
On .May 118, 185)8, Mr. Sam Derrochers published the following letter in the Quebec papers : "I have
been a victim to Diabetes for over
live years, with terrible pains around
my kidneys. Hy feet were always
o\ild, and my thirst could not be
quenched, no matter what 1 drank.
1 tried remedy after remedy but ret
reived no help. I purchased ono box
of Dodd's Kidney Pills and found Immediate relief. 1 have now finished
live boxes, and can say 1 am perfectly cured."
Now to clear away all possible
doubt that Air. Derrochers was not
(uriti, to show beyond question that
Dodd's Kidney Pills did not merely
relieve him for the time, but actually
cured him of Diabetes, and cured him
to stay cured, wo publish his letter
oi April -lih, 1801.
"Dear Sirs.—My cure o' Diabetes
by Dodd's Kidney Pills has been permanent. I have not been troubled
with a sign of Diabetes since my
cure three years ago."
Dodd's Kidney Pills cure all diseases of the Kidneys and tbe
troubles arising from weak action of
thc Kidneys. They are used throughout the world.

James Bowie, famous by reason of the
worlil renowned kuifu railed by his name,
was born in Burke county, Ga., in 1700.
In 1 sii_ ins father emigrated to Louisiana. That country mu then still umler
French domination. Then' had been
large tracts of land granted by lhe
French crown in the territory named for
Louis XIV, and one of theBe, iu the parish of Catahoula, was acquired by the
elder Bowie. He wns a man of substance, owning nearly 100 slaves. lie
Bonn had his estate opened out and was
growing superb crops of cotton and corn,
His sou James he sent first to n fatuous
private school nt .Natchez. Miss., ami afterward to the Jesuit college, then loaned in New Oilcans.
James Bowie iu 1S27 wns challenged to
a dud with Nona's Wright. The pocket
pistols of that day were uncertain. It
was lung before the percussion cup had
been lu'ought into common use, and the
flintlock arm was the only firearm known.
It was liable to miss lire just when it
Otlght not to. Bowie determined to rely
upon a knife he had caused to be made
foi just such h contingency. lie Lad
takm n 14 inch file, such ns wns then
used lo shnrpen crosscut saws and the
Upright saws used for turning out planks
from logs. He had the file marks carefully ground off the file and the smooth
piece of steel ■skillfully reduced by the
grindstone until it was about the thickness and weight he desired. Then he
took it to a Spaniard in New Orleans
known as "Pedro, the skilled cutler." a
man who had learned his art in Toledo,
wh'-le Ihe finest sword blades ia all Spain
were forged. He tempered and finished
the knife, fitted it with a crosipiece and
halt. When it was done. James Bowie
had n weapon "fit tu light for n man's life
wit!;.'' as lie snid to Governor Wells. It
was beautifully balanced, and the nrtist
hnd hollow ground it like ii razor, wiili
n double edge for three or four inches
from the point.
Tlie knife wns fitted with a woolen
scabbard, covered with leather, and was
sharp enough to shave the hair ofi" the
back of one's hand. This was the original bowie knife, though it was somewhat modified subsequently in shape.
Natchez island, where tlie light was tn
be, was midway between the Louisiana
aad Mississippi shores of the great Father of Waters. Therefore it was n favorite meeting place for gentlemen who
had to adjust affairs that might have n
fatal ending, as the authorities of neither
state could interfere.
ll was understood that each of lhe
principals should have hut one friend.
and certainly not more than two. on the
ground. But Mr. Wright bad five or six
present. The fight began with pistols.
One of Bowie's missed fire, while both of
Wright's took effect upon his antagonist.
Thinking he had Bowie at bis mercy,
Nona's Wright sprang upon him. In a
moment Bowie had drawn his deadly
knife, and. though two or three of
Wrights friends wero shooting nt him.
nnd hitting him, too. Bowie made one
nwful slash at Wright's neck. The keen
sieel hit into tlie very ueckbone. The
blood shot out over Bowie, nnd Norris
Wright was dead before he touched the
Seriously wounded himself, it was for
some time a very doubtful question
whether or not he would ever get well.
But youth, n temperate life and nn excellent constitution tinally brought him
around, and in a year from that time he
killed General Crain with the same knife
be bad used in his lirst encounter. "The
knife doesn't miss lire," he said to nn intimate friend, Mr. Bynum of the parish
of Itnpides.   "The pistol dqes."
James Bowie was engaged In the purchase and contest of claims for areat
tracts of land that bad been grants made
b.v the French crown. When Louisiana
was ceded to the United States and finally became a state, there was a good deal
of trouble on ibis account over some of
the titles to land along the Red river and
its tributaries. A man often had to fight
for his plantation, as frequently he would
not give it up to somebody with an old
French or Spanish grant. It wns in
these contests that .lames Bowie did the
most of his killing. lie had If! lives on
liis" hands from the use of that one
knife. After much consideration he had
made a knife that has been the model
and pattern for all the real bowie knives
that ever had the sanction of their originator.
In ISM") Colonel B .wie sold his Louisiana property nnd went to Texas. The
Lone Star Slate was in the throes of a
bloody revolution. The gallant resistance
of the Texans so exasperated General
Santa Anna, who was chief in command
of the Mexican forces, that he swore he
would take no more prisoners. When
Bowie arrived in Texas, he was ai once
nude a colonel of riflemen iu the army of
Ti vas.
In January, 1S.10. Colonel Bowie was
ordered to Sun Antonio de Bexar to as

Anna's coming forces. The siege ran

lie was lying on his bed when he heard
the triumphant Mexicans coming in. Ii
was the lirst hint he had had of the snr

could, however, move about a little. The
instant the Mexicans came Into the room
ihey began shooting at him. He grasped

A weary nu-1 hungry man fell from sheer
fnintuess by the vvnyside. A crowd gnth
ered at once, and an ollieious bystaaiei
bustled forward, shouting:
"Stand back!   Give liim air!"
The fainting man rallied aud sat up.

for the hand grenades.
When the lire department did arrive,
the men found ber stuiiding over the
sideboard rummaging through tbe
drawers. Copious streams of water
soon drowned the blaze and ruined the
lower floor, and the department left.
Still she rummaged. Her husband
came, called by the phone girl. He saw
her there.
"Why, my dear girl," he said, "why
didn't you use the band grenades and
stop the fire as soon as it started?
Then the whole lower part of the house
wouldn't have been soaked."

would just keep the corkscrew where
