for six weeks, lm8 resulted fatally, the

night. His death came as a shook to
Silvertonians, as the reports of his physician, Dr. Brouse, had been encouraging

The deceased was a young man, but 23
years old, ami very popular among ali
wbo knew him fur i,i„ 8lerling qualities.
He came to Silverton about two years
ago for the C. I' R., having been previously employed by that company in
Nelson and Sandon. After some months
as agent he decided to go into business
here, purchasing the business ol the Silverton News Company. Just before his
illness he had accepted a position with.
the Wm. limner Company. He was.
a director iu tlm local Athletic Association and took an active interest in whatever was being done for the town.
He was bora in Eganville, Ontario

About one o'clock Tuesday morning a

a lire ui.der full headway in the Town-

partially rescued, Hie occupants having
escaped in plenty of time, and Hie furnishings of the Episcopal Church, which occupied part of the building, and some
store fixtures were dragged out of reach
of the 11 tines, No attempt was made to
put out the lire as one side oi the building
was ablaze before enough had gathered
to do anything. Tbe structure burned
like tinder and after blazing fiercely for
half an hour collapsed.
For some time the surrounding build-
ings were in danger of being ignited by
the blazing brands which were scattered
widely, but water was freely used and
the night being calm the flames were
confined to the one building. At the
cottages oi A A Webb and M R W Rath-
boru the workers couid not face the hea1
but plied their buckets blindly. If this
latter place had caught the schoolbause
would have been in great danger.
The origin of the fire is unknown, but

more good strikes have been made
close to the Lake than back in the

It was however all stiked. The
backwardness of the present season
will doubtless see much of the first
prospecting confined to tbe lower levels

It has been said by one of our
exchanges that the great-majority cf
workingmen in ihe Province, by
sending their orders to Eastern sweat
shops, are not desirious of seeing local
stores established nor towns built up.
This is a mistake. The workingmen
appreciate the presence of local stores.
They know how convenient it is to
have some place to stand off fur their
supplies when they are out of work
and have not the ready eash to send

operations ever recorded ln the annals
of Surgery. It consisted of taking
'three stitches In the heart of Philip
Gunn, who had been stabbed In a
brawl. The point of the knife blade
had entered the right ventricle and
had pierced .to the. cavity of the heart.
The knife entered' the heart obliquely
and the result was that the opening
between the cavity and the pericardium, or ooveiing of the heart, was lip
shaped on both sides.
The wound acted as a valve and at
each pulsation of tlu. blood through the
heart but a small quantity was let
through the artificial opening. The
task of stitching the wound was difficult Dr. Nletert tlrat removed * section of the breastbone, exposing the
pericardium. The motion of the heart
can not be repressed and be was forced
to make the stitches while the organ
waa shifting about. It required three
stitches to effectually close the gap.

Pittsburg, April 21.—This city is the center of a widespread and disastrous storm.
For a radius of 150 miles in western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West
Virginia ruin or snow has lieen fulling ul-
most without intermission for three duys.
Mountain streums have become torrents,
creeks are swollen and out of their banks,
and the 'big rivers ure oceans of turbulent
water. Flood records, it is expected, will
bc broken before the water subsides. The
financial loss can not be estimated. In addition to the hundreds of thousands and
perhaps of millions of dollars it will cost to
put large manufacturing plants in commission ugitin, tens of thousands of skilled
workmen ure thrown out of employment
and lose their wages just at a time when ull
the iron and steel mills are rushed with
Thousands of people are lying in the upper rooms of their water soaked houses,
without heat, light or foed. Where gas
fuel is used the pipes are Hooded and cut
off and whnt coal there may be is under
five to 10 feet of wuter. ,
AtScoville, the home of the Presscd-Steel
Cur company, the town is completely surrounded by water. The workers and their
families constitute a community of several
thousand persons.
Wheeling, W. Va., fears the most disastrous Hood in its history. The wmthenvi.-tii
suy the river will make a new high record
al that point. The mountain streams of
the state are gushing down with resistless
force. Behind this comes the Hood tide of
the Ohio, fed by the Monongahela, Allegheny. Beaver und other tributaries. From
to to 50 feet of water is feared at Wheeling,
whicli means an immense loss of property.
ln many parts of Pennsylvania and Ohio
piobably the heaviest storm ever known ut
this season of the year has lieen raging for
two days. At Oil City the oil exchange
went out of business temporarily because it
was impossible to secure quotations from
New York, Pittsburg and other points. On
one railroad in Ohio passenger trains are
stalled and engines sent to their assistance
huve been buried with snow und all must
wait with a hope for a speedy turn of the
weather. In the meantime the passengers
must depend on nearby fanners for sufficient food to keep them from starvation.
The big manufacturing plunts in this city
huve suffered severely. The cost of repairs
is but a small item in comparison to the delay in filling the orders with whicli all the
plants ure crowded.
The iron mills along the rivers were early
alllieied und one by one were compelled to
shut down.
A widespread and disastrous flood has inundated all the lowlands in western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West
Virginia. Streums, both great and siiiull,
have passed the Hood line and ure still rising. Pittsburg is the center of the storm-
stricken district and Ihe effects nre proli-
ably worst in its immediate vicinity. Rata
has lieen fulling in and for many miles
around Pittsburg for 00 hours arid all precipitation records are broken. .Parker's
Landing, up the Allegheny, reports nearly
four inches, and Greensboro, on the Monongahela river, over three inches. Down the
Ohio over four inches fell at Wood Junction und about three and a half inches at
Beaver. West and north of Pittxburg heavy
falls of wet snow are reported. Up the Allegheny river reports come of two feet of
snow on the level at many places. This had
the effect of breaking down telegraph wires
and crippling railroad service. Mails are
eifhet delayed for hours or not arriving ut
Business, religious services, comfort and
health are ut the merry of the storm. Several narrow escapes from death have been
reported and it is not improbable that when
the flood subsides it muy reveal a number
of bodies.
.Steam and electric railroad trucks are
buried under thousands of tona of earth
washed down the hillsides, and in some
cases the trucks huve lieen moved. Where
the snow and sleet prevailed telegraph
wires and poles went down under the burden und costly ruilrotid ami other bridges

At Carnegie, six miles spnth of Pittsburg,
everything is in a Btute of panic. To add
to the excitement a niun-lier of negroes got
drunk on liquor bring carried from the cellars of .saloons. Chief of Police Foster tried
to arrest three of them, when tly>y attacked
him with razors, cutting him severely. The
fircbells were rung and the ctttzens turned
out. They suppressed the negroes and arretted three of them.
Pittsburg, April 22.—The most widespread and destructive storm, from a
material point of view, has passed. It
has left a zone of ruin 200 miles ln
diameter. Cities 70 miles from Pitta-
burg were tied up by one Of the worst
storms ever eeen here. While the
snow fell from 18 irfcheS to throb feet
deep, which Is.^ot extraordinary, the
snow was so wet that It fctnfig In
weighty masses to shade and fruit
trees and poles, bearing them to earth.
It settled on steam and electric rails

The fall was so hanvy.ond spontaneous ln some places that the residents
declared It 'seemed' like the bursting

relief, as the rain will run off swifter

Caused   by   an   Impure  Condition
of the   Blood—How It   May
Be Permanently Cured.
From the Mirror, Manchester, N. B.
Although rheumatism is one of the
most painful and I dangerous of the
many troubles which nlllict mankind,
it can be permanently cured if a proper course of treatment is taken. The
real cause of rheiiinutisni is the presence of acid in the blood and the
only cure is to purify, nourish and
strengthen this vital fluid. The best
specific yet discovered for this purpose
is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pule
People and tho number of cures they
have effected in cases of this stubborn
disease is wonderful Mrs. S. D,

The skin is the seat of an almost endless variety of diseases. They are known
by various names, but are all due to the
same cause, acid and other poisons in
the blood that irritate and interfere with
the proper action of the skin.
To have a smooth, soft skin, free from
all eruptions, the blood must bc kept pure
and healthy. The many preparations of
arsenic and potash and the large number
of face powders and lotions generally
used in tbis class of diseases cover up
for a short time, but cannot remove permanently the ugly blotches and tbe red,

In a dissenting opinion Died by Judge

sense be educated to tbe liking or deadened to Its presence, It Is about as offensive an odor as can greet the olfactory nerve of human beings. That the
premises arc Inhabitable ln Its continued exposed presence will not be generally believed and when lt Is combined
with tbe odorlferousness arising from
tbe cheese, we can readily see that a

needs no occult power to understand
that only a small quantity of Limburger cheese Is necessary to All the atmosphere with smell. We have seen a

THE after-effects of the grip are often disastrous,   ft Is commonly
known to the medical fraternity that the numerous ailments
ar.d complications which follow the grip are apt to be more serious
than the acute stage of the disease.
Some people have the grip very lightly.    They may be confined
to the house only a day or two and yet a long train of disagreeable,
dlsabl'ng symptoms follow.    All sorts of tonics and stimulating
remsdiei have been devised to meet this condition.   None of them
can compare in results with Peruna.
