Meeting* on Tuesday.
Saturday evening a well attc/ide I
meeting was held in tho city hall of
those imbued with the ideas of socialism. J. V. Purviance was chairman
and S. B, Clement secretary. A
number of short but interostintf addresses were mado upon the subject,
all favoring the idea of ejecting a
permanent organization. A resolution to that end was accordingly pas
sed and the meeting organized into
communion with the Social League
of Canada. The dues were fixed at
25 cents per month, which will be
expended in the purchase of the best.
literature obtainable. Election 6tofficers followed, J. M. McGregor being
put in as president, D D. Robertson
vice president, and II. J. Lipsett
secretary treasurer. Messrs. Sheridan, Lipsett and Tetter were appointed a committee to arrange for a
number of addresses to be given at
the next regular meeting. It was
decided to make all meetings open to
the public, unless otherwise called
for, and all ladies are cordially invited to attend.
Twenty-four names were placed on
thc membership roll.alljoining being
required to take an obligation tsi
stand united on any and all public
and political matters, so that in future
the strength ofthe organization may
be felt. The local league promises
to be a strong one and the Int-jntion
is to put in a lively winter's can*
paign.

On Tuesday evening another meet.,
ing was lu Id", in the Miners'Union
hall, there being a big crowd present. A new list of membership was
circulated and freely signed. ' it
contained the following ohligati.in.
"As a member if the Canadian So
cialistie League, 1 declare my bellel
in and my intention to wink for (1)
the brotherhood of man the world
over; and (_') the public ownership of
all the means of production, distribution and exchange. And I pledge
myself to vote and work for socialist
candidates when such are nominated
for any elective position by our or
ganization." The list was freely
signed, the membership being increased to 35.
A motion, was passed, instructing
thc secretary to open up correspond
bnce with other leagues in the province, with a view to getting a lecturer to tour the country during the
winter. The following were then
added to the executive c nimittee of
the local league: J. M, MclJiegsi*, S.

The lcaguo also resolved to purchase a $10 share in the C. II. Ktit
Publishing Co., of Chicago, which
will permit of them getting socialist
reading matter at reduced rates.
There are quite a number of works
on hand and they hayc been turned
oyer to W. J. Adcock, who has been
appointed librarian for the league.
It is the intention also to get many
more books and pamphlets on the
subject of socialism to add to the library.
Short addresses were given during

Regular meeting of thc board of
trade was held in the council chamber on Thursday evening last, with
President W. T. Shatford in tin.
chair. The attendance was small
...nd the session short. The commit*
tee to arrange for the establishment
ofa prospector's exchange in connection with the board made their report
recommending the fitting up of a cabinet for ores, with descriptions of various properties to bo left with the
secretary. Matter left oyer till next
meeting for further information.
The secretary, on behalf of the
smelter committee,reported favorable
progress. Information had been
asked and given to a representative
of British capital on the subject, data
had been secured relative to the lime
deposits to the south of thc city, and
some particulars obtained of thc ore
resources of the camp. The conclusion arrived at was that Slocan was
advantageously situated as a smelter
site.
The next meeting ofthe board will
be held o:i the second .Monday in
November.

One of tli3 valuable advantages
possessed by this place asa s.rfelter
site is tiie huge lime deposit, owned
I by Ooorgn Payne and located a short
distance below the city. It is of gi
gantic proportions, as pure as it is
large, and easy of access. The outcrops of the deposit show it to be 300
foet w'uli', and traceable for at least
half n mile. Where the principal
work has been done it has a face of
330 feet. A tunnel has been driven
in 30 feet and no change has-taken
place in the quality of the lime.
Tests have been made by all the assayers. in the camp, and also the
frail and Nelson smelters. Their
figures show but one per cent silica
at the most and 93 .percent pure lime.
Mr, Payne has burned several kilns
of it for local masons, who pronounce
it the best article seen here. Kx-
pcrts class the deposit as one of the
most valuable, as well as pure, to be
found in the northwest.

Twelve men were let out from the
Speculator at the  beginning o1' the
week, reducing the force to 20 men.
Thc reduction is for the winter only
and early next spring the force will
be largely increased aud a vigorous
policy carried out.    During the winter the No. 1  level  will  be. pushed
forward on  the east vein  uniil the
crosscut from the west vein is met,
which   will   then  drain   the  older
workings.    Development will be continued on both veins throughout the
winter.   The No. 1 drift has not yet
cut into any large  body of ore, but
what has been taken out is of the finest quality of dry ore, carrying high
values  in   silver.   The   recent fine

got into .pretty good shape for the

is one of the exigencies of mining,

till spring.

W. C. E. Koch, one of the most enterprising men in the country,sent up
a wagon load of wire and general
supplies, on Wednesday, for tho purpose of extending the telephone system from the Speculator over the
summit oa to Ten .Mile. Instruments
are to be placed at the Enterprise,
enterprise mill, nnd Koch's sawmill,
below Aylwin. Ten Mile will then
be brought into direct touch with the
city and business gTeatsly expedited.
With this extension all the leading
properties in the camp secure con*

likely other properties will be added
to the string. So fir the telephone
system has been installed by private

Tery cutting and calm—"then, my good
■ir, you can go back again. This is not
tbe place in which to settle a dispute of
this kind. I presume yon have a lawyer. I will give yon the address of
mine. No power on earth can force
this lady to live with you again. She
definitely refuses the honor. Everybody
in London knows where I live—or if
there be any that don't know they can
very easily find ont. I will give yon
every information."
"Yon will give me my wife."
"That I never will While I have
breath in my body I will stick to tbe
woman who took me in good faith for
better, for worse. And if I know anything of my friends they will honor
ber more for staying with me than tbey
wonld if sbe went back to what some
people wonld call her dnty and. you."
"LawyersI" repeated Edward Coo-

in lawyers between man and wife. Not

aboveboard. I want nothing ont of the

I married yon white faced hussy because I was mad about her. I waa a
fool, but men are always fools in that
way. I've been stuck on a desert island for a long time, where I've had
nothing to do but to think about the
wife who scorned me, and I thought—
and I thought—that if ever I got back
I'd make ber eat her words—I'd make
her come like a dog to my feet."
"HereI Get out of this!" said Stacey.
breaking in ruthlessly upon bis raving
"Get out of this! There'll be no'dog

good fellow, put that out of your mind
at onca Take what steps you like
Enter a divorce We shall not defend
it. Please yourself what you do, only
take yourself out of our way That's
all we ask. At all events get out of thia
room    It's mine."
"And that—tbat is my wife!'
"That's as may be eettled in court

yon don't get out at once. Now. come

would be neither blame nor ignominy
attached to either of ns. I told tbe
landlord a lie. I told him that Conway
had mistaken you for somebody else,
and he believed it. I told him that it
would be very unpleasant for yop if,
when bis relatives came down, yon
were mixed up in the story in any way,
and I gave him a tenner to leave us out
of the affair as far as is possible. He
was most sympathetic. He will never
trouble us. We.will go back to London
at once—we can get part of the way
tonight—and as soon as possible we
will be quietly married in some out of

know anything about ns."
"Dear Alan," said she, "what ont of
tbe way church will you find where nobody will know anything abont yon?"
"Well, dear child, there are good
souls in tbe world who wonld not hurt
as by blazoning forth this unhappy
story. It is no great matter if the world
does know; it will be certain sure then
that yon and I are fast tied in wedlock.'
THE END.
"Then, my good *ir, you can go back
again."
I don't want to make a scene or a row
Ton're an older man than I am, and 1
don't wish to try which of ns ia tbe

Now, oot yon got"
There was a momentary scuffle, and
then the door was shut and Alan Stacey's back was against it. He and Mary
were on one side of tbe door and Edward Conway was on the other.
On bis side Edward Conway began
frantically to beat at the door; then be
kicked, and at last, when the stout
panels showed signs of giving way,
tbere was a sudden cessation of tbe
efforts to enter—a pause, a groan and
tbe sound of a heavy body tumbling to
tbe ground.

"Yes; they've all stopped talking. 1

"No, not Listen I He has had a fit I'
And so it proved to be. Tbe excitement the great mental struggle and
tbe physical strain to which the nnfor
tnnate man had pnt himself in trying
to force open the door had all done their
work
When Alan opened tbe door, it was
to find  Edward Conway on the stone
floor of tbe paasage in a fit of apoplexy
and Mary was practically a free woman
They railed him from the floor and carried bim to bed, bnt he never spoke or

For a few hours he lingered, breathing

those hours of anxions waiting Mary
■taid down on the beach, listening to
the beating of the waters npon  the

Then Alan Stacey came down to tell
her that all was over.

Punjabi Proverb.
After marriage arrives a reaction,
sometimes a big, sometimes a little, one,
bnt it comes sooner or later and must
be tided over by both parties if they desire tbe rest of their lives to go with the
current
In the case of the Cusack-Bremmils
this reaction did not set in till the third
year after the wedding. Bremmil was
hard to hold at the nest of times, bnt he
was a beautiful husband nntil tbe baby
died and Mrs. Bremmil wore black and
grew thin and mourned as if the bottom of the universe had fallen ou t. Perhaps Bremmil onght to have comforted
her. He tried to do so, I think, bnt the
more he comforted the more Mrs. Bremmil grieved and consequently the more
uncomfortable Bremmil grew. The fact
was that they both needed a tonic, and
they got it. Mrs. Bremmil can afford to
laugh now, bnt it was no laughing matter to her at the time.
Yon see, Mrs. Hauksbee appeared on
the horizon, and where she existed was
fair chance of trouble. At Simla her byname was the "Stormy Petrel." She bad
won that title five times to my own certain knowledge. Sbe was a little, brown,
thin, almost skinny woman, with big,
rolling, violet bine eyes and the sweetest
manners in the world. Yon had only to
mention ber name at afternoon teas for
every woman in tbe room to rise np and
call her—well—not—blessed. Sbe was
clever, witty, brilliant and sparkling
beyond most of her kind, but possessed
of many devils of malice and mischie-
vousness. She conld be nice, though,
even to her own sex Bnt that is another story.
Bremmil went off at score after the
baby's death and the general discomfort
tbat followed, and Mra Hauksbee annexed him. She took no pleasure in
hiding her captives. She annexed him
publicly and saw that tbe public saw it
He rode with ber and walked with her
and talked with her and picnicked with
her and tiffined nt Peliti's with her till
people put up their eyebrows and said,
"Shocking!" Mrs. Bremmil staid at
home turning over the dead baby's
frocks and cryi!*3 into the empty cradle
She did not care to do anything else
But some eight dear, affectionate lady
friends explained the situation at length
to her in case she should miss the cream
of it. Mra Bremmil listened qnietly
and thanked them for tbeir good offices
She was not as clever as Mrs. Hauksbee,
but she was no fooL She kept her own
counsel and did not speak to Bremmil
of what sbe bad heard. This is worth
remembering. Speaking to or crying
over a husband never did any good yet.
When Bremmil was at home, which
was not often, be was more affectionate than usual, and that showed his
hand. The affection was forced partly
to soothe hia own conscience and partly
to soothe Mn. Bremmil. It failed in
both regarda
Then "the A D. C. in waiting was
commanded by their excellencies Lord
and Lady Lytton to invite Mr. nnd
Mm Cnsack-Bremmil to Peterhoffon
July 2B at 9.30 p. m." "Dancing" was
in the bottom left hand corner.
"I cannot go," said Mrs. Bremmil
"It is too soon after poor little Florrie:
but it need not stop you, Tom."
She meant what she said then, and
Bremmil said tbat he wonld go jnst to
put in an appearance. Here he spoke
the thing which waa not. and Mra
Bremmil knew it. She guessed—a
woman's guess is much more neenrate
than a man's certainty—that he had
meant to go from the first, and with
Mrs. Hauksbee. Sbe Fat down to think,
and the outcome of her thoughts was
that the memory of a dead child was
worth considerably less than the affections of a living husband She made
ber plan and staked her all upon it. In
that honf she discovered that she knew
Tom Bremmil thoroughly, and this
knowledge she acted on.
"Tom," said she, "I shall be dining
ont at tbe Longmores' on the evening
of the 26th. You'd better dine at the
club."
This saved Bremmil from making aa
excuse to get away and dine with Mra
Hauksbee; so he waa grateful and felt
■mall and- mean at the same time,
which was wholesome. Bremmil left
the home at 0 for a ride. Abont half
past 5 in the evening a large leather
covered basket came in from Phelps'
for Mra Bremmil. She was a woman
wbo knew how to dress, and she had
not spent a week on designing tbat
dress and having it gored and hemmed
and borringboned and tucked and
rucked (or whatever tbe tertnB are) for
nothing   It waa a goi^euua dress, alight
mourning. I can't describe it. but It
was what The Queen calls "a creation'
—a thing that hit you Straight between
the eyes-and made yon gasp. Sho had
not much heart for whut sue was going
to do, bnt as she glanced at the long
mirror she hadthesnti-jfactionof knowing that she had uever looked so well
in her life. She wan a large blond, and
when she chose carried herself superbly.
After tbo dinner at the Longmores'
she went on to the dance—.s little lute
—and encountered Bremmil with Mrs.
Hauksbee on bis arm. That made ber
flush, and as the men crowded round
her for dunces she looked magnificent
She filled np all her dunces except three,
and those she left blank. Mra Hauksbee canght her eye once, and she knew
it was war—real war—between tbem
She started handicapped in the struggle, for she had ordered Bremmil about
jus.t the least little bit in the world too
much, and he was beginning to resent
it. Moreover, he had never seen his
wife look bo lovely He stared at her
from doorways and glared at her from
passages as she went about with bar
partners, and the more he stared the
more taken was he He conld scarcely
believe that this was the woman with
the red eyes and the bluck staff gown
who used to weep over tbe eggs ut
breakfast
Mrs. Hauksbee did ber best to hold
him in play; but, ufter two dunces, bu
crossed over to bis wife aud asked for
a dance
"I'm afraid you've come too late,
Mr. Bremmil." sbe said, with her eyea
twinkling
Then he begged her to give him a
dance, and as a great favor she allowed
him the fifth waltz Luckily five stood
vacant on his programme They danced
it together, aud tbere was a little flutter round the room Bremmil had a
sort of a notion that his wife could
dance, but ha never knew she danced
so divinely At the end of thut waltz
he asked for another—as a favor, not
as a right—aud Mrs Bremmil said,
"Show me your programme, dear!'
ite shewed it as a naughty little schoolboy hands up contraband sweets to a
master There wus u fair sprinkling of
"H" on it besides "H" atsnpper Mrs.
Bremmil said nothing, but she smiled
contemptuously, ran her pencil through
seven and nine—two "H's"—and returned the card with ber own name
written above, a pet name that only
she and her husband used. Then she
shook her finger at him und said, laughing, "Oh. you silly, silly boy I"
Mra Hauksbee beard that, and—sho
owned as much—felt sbe had the worst
of it. Bremmil accepted seven and nine
gratefully They danced seven and i-ft
ont nine in one of the little tents Whut
Bremmil said and what Mra Bremmil
did is no concern of any one
When the bund struck up "The Roast
Beef of Old England." the two went
out into the veranda, and Bremmil began looking for his wife's dundy (this
was beforo rickshaw days) while ube
went into the cloakroom Mrs Hauksbee came up and suid, "Yon take me
in to supper, I think. Mr  Bremmil I'
Bremmil turned red and looked foolish. "Ah'ml I'm going home with my
wife, Mrs. Hauksbee I think there bas
been a little mistake!' Being a man,
be spoke as though Mra Hanksbee were
entirely responsible.
Mra Bremmil came ont of tbe cloakroom in a swan's down cloak with a
white "cloud" ronnd ber head She
looked radiant, and she bad a right ta
The couple went off into the darkness
together, Bremmil riding very close to
the dundy.
Then says Mra Hanksbee to me—sbe
looked a trifle faded and jaded in the
lamplight—"Take my word for it. tbe
silliest woman can manage a clever
man, bnt it needs a very clever woinaa
to manage a fool."
Then we went in to supper

A TAX ON THRIFT.
Tho conditions existing in New
Zealand are shown in tho following
lntwviuw in the Toronto Globe with
Mr. Thomas Fleming a leading miller and grain merchant of Invorcar-
glll, N. Z., who recently visited Canada :
"In overy other country, Ehglan.1,
Scotland, Ireland, Canada eind the
United States, I find that every Inducement is given to people willing
to start local industries of any
kind, whereas in Now Zealand, per
contra, every obstacle is thrown In
your way. Take, for example, tlio
railway department, ln New 7u.a-
lahd, if you wish to start a manufacturing establishment of any kind
you have first of all a tremendous
up-hill light to get tho siding granted to your mills or ninuiifticiuring
establishment. Then you have to
pay every cent that tho siding costs,
tho railway department reserving the
right to pull up that siding at any
timo and take away all the material
for which you havo paid. Then they
chargo you a rental of CftO per annum for tho Biding that you havo
paid for, In addition to all that
you havo to guarantee before getting tho siding, l^von the local bodies tax us unduly. For instance, in
our own town the corporation
chargo us for the water wo pump
out of a running rlvor for our boilers and condenser and afterwards return to tho Rtronin.
"Compulsory arbitration is simply
a gigantic failure. Tbo papers nro
full of nothing else. The work of tho
judge is far in arrears and general
dissatisfaction exists. This government rolled in on the labor troubles
and strikes and havo kept the pot
boiling ever since.
"The old-age pensions are a groat
drain. The recipients are not bound
to contribute to the fund: so long as
they keep clear of the jail they got
it if they have saved nothing. If peoplo have saved any tiring they do not
got it. It is simply a premium on
thriftlessncss, a tax on thrift. New-
Zealand last year did not increase
in population 2,000 against Canada's
increase of 70,000. There Is absolutely no inducement given to Europeans to settle there. There is no
sign of improvement from present
conditions, and I am rroing back
with a firm resolve that if I can
leave the country I will do so after
<10 years, as I think Canada or Ain-
ica.'hold out so much better Inducements to people to get along."
In speaking of Ihe railway rates
on the government railways in New
Zealand, Mr. Fleming said that hi*
found that grain can be carried from
Chicago or Manitoba and thence
across thc Atlantic to Britain at as
small a cost as it can be carried
in New Zealand on tho government
railways 500 miles. He approved of
tho government ownership of railways as they had it in New Zealand
formerly, when tho railways were
under the control of an independent
board of commissioners but the
present government abolislud thut
board and asi-mmed direct control of
the railways with bad results.
FADING OF BUTTER.

Few, If uny, of tbe writers on the
habits, folklore und history of the
American Indian huve devoted any
space to the red man's Turkish bas.li.
an institution homemade, to be Bure,
but a recognized necessity ln every
camp nud a feuture of the dally life r
the Indian. On the contrary, con
mentators have conveyed tbe lmpit*
sion that habits of cleanliness are foreign to the Indian und that ho has nn
Inborn aversion to water except for
culluury purposes.
By the avidity and frequency with
which the Indian indulges In his home
made Turkish bath be proves the fallacy of this belief and shows that he,
a^ well ns his white brother, enn live
up to the precept "Cleanliness Is next
to godliness," only In the practice tbe
Indian puts clean 11 ness first.
The term "Turkish bath Is unknown
to the Indian. He culls that method of
ablution u "medicine sweat." It Is to
him n rite both physical and spiritual,
for he cleanses his person and then
"makes medicine" to his tireat Spirit.
That tbe rite Is religiously observed
was shown by a band of Brule Sioux
Indians, who made a Journey across
the continent to tho cast and went Into
encampment In, to them, a strange
land.
On their arrival, even before they
raised their tepee poles, they erectesl a
"medicine sweat" tent The framework
of this tent Is of hoop poles so trained
thut It Is .about nine foet lu diameter,
four feet high, Hut topped and almost
circular In form.
'.fust within the framework there is a
bedding of straw about two feet wide,
and In tho center of the tent there Is a
whole in the ground about three feet in
diameter and throe feet deep. There
aro no steam rents or pipes, no marble
slabs, no rubbers and no sheets. When
the Indian Is ready for his "medicine
sweat" a number of stones or rocks
are heated lo almost white beat and
dumped into the hole In the ground.
Then the red men, 20 or 25 of them, lu
a costume even scantier than Adam's
after the fall, range themselves upon
the straw. Tliey sit mummy fashion,
their chins on llielr knees and their
arms around their shins, packed so
close together that oven If they would
they could not move.
When they are all ready, blankets,
skii-.s and canvas nre thrown over the
framework until the tent Is almost airtight, two or three buckets of water
are passed in and thrown upon the hot
stones and Ihe "medicine sweat" begins. The moment the steam begins to
rise the Indians begin a ehnnt. which
I.s kept up without Interruption until
the sweat Is over. Packed together,
enveloped In sienin so thick that none
can see his neighbor, the Indians sit.

Bow tho Genuine  Article  May Lose
Itas Attractiveness.
This Is the season of the year when
butter fades in the market and loses
mnch of its bright yellow, attractive
appearance, writes William Conway In
the Boston Cultivator. Merchants are
considerably bothered wltb tbls sudden change ln tbe butter, and lt sometimes causes f*em loss aa well as tbe
producer. The cause of this loss of
color Is not always easily ascertained.
It was supposed at oue time that faded
batter was simply artificially colored
butter, losing Its coloring matter added
after churning, but this is not necessarily true. Some pure butter that bas
been made without any artificial coloring seems to bleach out almost the col
or of clean tallow. Naturally butter
thus bleached out docs not sell well.
The cause of this Is partly due to the
poor handling of tbe butter. It Is necessary to keep all the butter at a low
temperature lu summer to make It
keep, but ln transferring It from cold
storage to tbe store this temperature
is frequently changed quite violently.
The sudden change causes tbe butter
to undergo a chemical change in extreme Instances. It Is not at all unlikely that tbls causes the color to
change also and produce the bleached
out appearance. Tbe greatest caro In
handling butter In hot weather Is last
as urgent ou tbe part of commission
merchants as the farmer. Without
doubt a good deal of tbe spoiled butter
tbat sells down nt nominal prices Is
due to tbe carelessness of tbe shippers
and city merchants. On tbe otber
band, tbls should not release the makers from responsibility, for much of
tbe poor butter Is due to slovenly
methods of tbe farmer. Bleached out
or faded butter may be tauscd by the
lack qt tbe proper Incorporation of the
salt In the mass. If tbe salt Is not
thoroughly worked through every part
of the butter there will be some of It
that will become rancid. This rancidity in a very email part of the butter
will spread and In time cause the
whole mass to undergo a chemical
change. A peculiar tallow or greasy
flavor develops, and the natural yellow of the batter fades to a pale, sickly hae that Is very unprepossessing.
In extreme cases, where a high or sudden change of temperature hastens the
process of degeneration, the butter
may become almost worthless on ac-
:ount of Its appearance. The sale of
first class butter depends as much upon Its looks as upon its actbal taste.
It Is consequently essential to guard
against anything tbat will make tha
mass lose Its color and bright, attractive appearance.

OVERWORKED
WAGE-EARNERS
What hosts of poor, weak and debilitated men and
women are sapping the vitality from their bodies by plodding long hours in poorly, ventilated shops and factories.
The. blood gets thin an ' vitiated, digestion is bad, the nerves
become shattered and exhausted, there are headaches, backaches and weariness that is not overcome by the night's rest.
Despondent and despairing of having strength and vigoj restored, life becomes a burden to the wage-earner who cannot
afford the  rest he so much needs.
The sj stem demands unusual assistance. It requires
just such a.d as is best afforded by the use of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food, the great tissue builder 2nd nerve restorative.
Thousands of exhausted and weak men and women have gone
to work with new strength and a current of fresh new life flowing through their veins after using this treatment. Their minds
act more clearly, their nerves are more reposeful, their digestion is better and their work more easily accomplished.

A TEOUBLH RESEMBLING TARAL-
YS1S IN ITS EFFECT.
The Victim Loses Strength in His
Limbs and la Usually Unable to
llo Any Work—The Story of a
Former Sufferer, Showing How
This Numbness Can bo Overcome.
From  "The Whig,"  Kingston, Ont.
There are few men in the city of
Kingston better known than Mr. II.
S. Johnson, the genial proprietor of
tho "Bon Ton" barber parlor, on
Brock street. For several years ho
hail been in failing health, being
obliged to give over the entire work
of his busy shop to his assistants.
Dut this spring his health is so wonderfully improved that hia many
friends havo been congratulating him.
on his restoration. In conversing
with a reporter ol Tho Whig recently, Mr. Johnson had the following
to say concerning his illns-es and
euro : "For many months I was
practically parulyzod. Numbness took
possession of my limbs, s>specially of
my hands. From my hips down my
body was without strength, and despite all that I could do, I wns unable to prevent my hands and feet
from becoming icy cold. My appetite left. me. and soon I had to give
up work. My general health was of
course failing, and I lost flenh. As
you know. I am 65 years of age.
and when a man loses strength at
that age, it is a hard thing to build
him up again. I tried several kind**
of medicines, but they all failed to
hcni'flt mc. The doctors whom I
consulted were also unable to help
me. I was growing discouraged
when some of my old customers advised mo to try Dr. Williams- I'ink
Dills. At first I refuss»d, for I did
not believe any medicine on ourtli
could help me, but at last friendly
persuasion had its effect, and I
bought a supply of the pills and began taking them. I soon found that
they were benefiting me. and so continued their uso until Dr. Williams'
I'ink PUIb havo made mo a new man.
I feel stronger and better day by
day; I am gaining In weight, and
once again I am able to attend to
my old customers without the least
troublo. I consider tho pills my best
friend and would not be without
them."
Dr. Williams' rink Pills are tho
friend of tho weak and. all ing. They
surpass all other medicines in their
tonic, strengthening qualities and
make weak and despondent peoplo
bright, actlvo nnd healthy. Theso
pills aro sold by all dealers in medicine, or can be had by mail, postpaid, at 50 cents a box, or six boxes
for $2.50, by addressing the Dr. Williams Medlcino Co., Brockvillc, Ont.

ELM YOBS A
STORY    OF    A     QUEBEC   MAN'S
TRIAL AND HIS LONG UNEARNED PUNISHMENT.
His Recent Marvellous Escape by the
Aid of Dodd's Kidney Pills—Hla
Gratitude to the Help that Saved
Him—Six Boxea Completely He-
stored Him to HeaPb.
St. Patrice, Lotbiniere, Que., Sept.
30.—(Special)—A sad story of unjust imprisonment is that told by
Phillips. Boissonneault of this place.
His case was worse than that of the
ordinary prisoner, for his bonds were
those of pain and disease. For 11
years they hold him, a hopeless victim, chained, tortured, a slave to
Kidney Disease.
Who is thero in tho world that
thinks man was intended to suffer,
that ho merits his fate, that he deserves thu aflliciions disease put on
him ? Surely, no one thinks that.
We wero put hero to bo happy, to be
healthy and free from pain. Nobody
will say that Phillippo BoisBonneault
of St. Patrice deserved his long punishment, and nobody but will rejoice
to learn that through the aid of a
wonslcrful medicine—Dodd's Kidney
Pills—he has escaped.
Dodd's Kidney Pills, the remedy
that proved such a boon, have made
a reputation all over the world In
curing of diseases of and arising
from the Kidneys. Bright's Disease,
Diabetes, Rheumatism, Lumbago,
Backache, Bla.ider nntl 'Uriuaiy
Troubles, Women's Disorders, Dropsy, Nervoneness and Blood Impurities all come within iho iscope of
Dodd's Kidney Pills, and hodd's Kidney Pills have testimonials for the
cure of all of them. Phitlippa Dois-
sonneault's case was the conr.ion
form of Kidney Disease.
"For eleven years I havo suffered
untold at?ony with Backache which
crippled me as thssugn I were barred
and shackled. I dwindled in weight
to a mere shadow. I have taken all
sorts of remedies, nothing ds>iii£ me
any good. I read ln Hodd's Almanac what was recommended for the
Kidneys. I decided to try thr.m and
sent for six boxes, though without
confidence, but today I am completely cured and thank Dodd's Kidney
Pills alone for It."
FOR AN ENEMY'S SHOT.
Careful obaurvatlons have been
made in order to find out which colors for uniforms present the best
marks for the enemy's shot, and it
has been found that thc most fatal
color is red, rifle green coming next,
brown third, while Austrian bluish-
grey ss tho least fatal.

TRUE GHOST STORIES.
tn  Knivll«b   Admiral  Who  Saw  II
Son'a   Apparition.
I know of n distinguished admiral wbo
was rending the paper one dny wben be
suddenly exclaimed, "1 hare just seen
 ," naming his son, who was a lieutenant in tbe navy on the West African
station. "He is on shore, being carried
hy sailors. He is very ill or dying, and
be is wearing a marine's cap." It was
ufterwitid shown that his sou, who was
on some expedition ou shore, had been
suddenly struck down with fever ond at
the lime in que»tiou was being carried by
Bailors and. whnt was more strange, he
hud sumo time before lost bis own cap
nnd was wearing such a cap as bis father
hud seen, which be had borrowed from a
marine.
Of these stories there are a great many.
One of the best authenticated of them is
the incident iu which Captain Slier broke
of tbe Thirty-third regiment, afterward
(ieiiernl Sir John Cope Sherliroke, and
I.ietiteiiniit George Wynward of the
same regiment were concerned. Oue afternoon in 1785. when tbey were with the
regiment in Canada, they were both sitting, together In Wynword's quarters.
It was utiout 4 o'clock. Tbey bad both
dined, but neither bad taken wine. Tbe
i-iHiin ihey sat in bud two doors, one opening into a passage, tbe other into Wyn-
wnnl's bedroom.
The only wny Into the sitting room was
the door from the passage, and the only
wny into the bedroom wns through the
sitting room. The two officers were reading some military subject together, having left mess early to pursue their studies.
Sherliroke, happening to look up from bis
book, observed a tall youth of about '20
years of age, whose appearance was that
of extreme emaciation. Struck with the
appearance *>f a perfect stranger, he
turned .i uis friend und directed his attention to tbe guest wbo had broken Into
tbelr studies. As soon as Wynward saw
the mysterious stranger he became very
agitated. "I never." Sir John Sherbroke
used to say in telling the story afterward,
"saw ii living face assume the appearance
of n corpse except Wynward's at that
mntttent." "Good Gssd." Wynward ex-
elnlnied. "if is my brother!" The stranger
ses'ins'sl to go into' Ihe bedroom. Tbey
followed him and found tbat tbere was
no one tbere. They took note of tbe hour
and day. Wben tbe mail Came from
borne, there was a letter to Sherbroke
from a mutual friend asking him to break
to Wynward tbe news tbat his favorite
brother was dead. He had died on the
dny and at the very hour on which Wynward mid his friend bad seen bis spirit
puss through the apartment.
There is one point that occurs to one oa
reading this story. Did tbe young mnn
die in England at 4 o'clock in tbe afternoon on the dny in question or did be die
ut the bour that the clock would hare
pointed to in England when it was 4 p.
ui. in Canada? In a good many of these
stories the difference of time at different
pints uf lhe world seems to be ignored.
The story, however, seems lo have plenty
of evidence to rest on. It wus published
in 1S2.'I hy Mr. Jarvis in his "Accredited
Ghost Stsiries." ami tbere Is a noto to the
effs'ct that a relation of Wynwnrd's had
rend it and stated that in all important
circumstances it was strictly true. Then
the author says that Sir John Sherbroke
often told the story, and Sir John lived
for some five years after the book was
published. In a discussion in "Notes
and Queries" n writer who seems to have
known the family hears witness to the
correctness of the story. One important
point is that nfter the apparition had been
seen nnd before the news hud come out
Wynward and Slierbrsske spoke frs*e!y to
their bristlier officers of wbnt tbey had
seen.
