THE CAMP remains were brought down on the
Slocnn Wednesday noon and was met
here by an undertaker from Nelson,
whither the bedy wns taken for burial. Hero it was also viewed by a
jury empanneled by Dr. Forin, eor-

this afternoon.
Upon word of the accident being
sent to Nelson, Supt. Downie came
up and took a new outfit of rolling
stock to thc Nakusp line, and on
Wednesday a bridge crew and material for a new trestle were Bent up.

Wayne Choate, the eminent American mining engineer, who came in
here a month ago with Norman D.
Carpenter and other Detroit capitalists, wound up his investigations in
the camp and departed Monday for
San Francisco.   The month's examination of the formation of the country,to-jetlier with a close examination
of the veins en a number of the leading properties In the camp, led ,Mr.
Qheate to materially alter bis opinion
of tlie dry ore belt, and, while not
(jiven to enthusia-m, he has become
a warm admirer of the resources back
of the elty.
Mr. Choate made a careful  injpec
tien of the Sapphire and May groups,
on Twelve Mile, fc-r his Detroit prin
cipals, and his reports thereon have
been extremely  favorable.   His surprise at a recent  exposure on the
Mav was great, he stattug that a vein
exists there Ite feet in width, with
one wall  vet to be uncovered, and
the full width carries values.   Other
claims were examined and the gen
oral  appearance of   the   veins convinces! Mr.Choate that the creel* had
great merit and would repay development.
Last week- he spent four days in
examining the Republic group, on
Erin mountain. The several veins
wen* traced out and mapped, the
various epenings noted, and -.ainpl
isg*. made ofthe vein matter at each
point, On ihe Robinson creak side

was shown, or 1000 feet on the din of

A recent issue of the Cranbrook
Herald had the following interesting
story about the proposed sawmill for
Slocan:
"Slocan has a brand new industry

that promises to substantially relieve
the dullness that has beset the entire

"Adjacent to Slocan is a valuable
timber limit, whieh contains, according to the report of an expert timber
cruiser, not less than 170,000,000 feet
of lumber. This property is owned
by lecal people principally, among
whom is Mayor York. Eastern sawmill people have formed a syndicate

north fork has been a serious menace
to the Black Prince and Two Friend*
mines; the other blaze was cleaning
up things on the main creek.
Down tlie Slocau valley are a number of fires, one at Cedar crock having burned up JoeDoarin'scabin and
supplies. Another two miles below
the city has been threatening several
ranchers and giving the C.P.R.
track and line men considerable
trouble. On Saturday a fire started
on the hill to tin* east of tho eity, just
above ihe wagon road transfer, but
it has dtine very little harm, Still
another blaze is ravaging the country around the Little Slocan lakes.
But the biggest of them all is raging
at tke head of Six Mile creek, on the
west side of thc lake,and i<* is licking

no lives have been lost. Rain is

note that the experts from the local
division have passed tlie 4000 ton
mark, which is pretty good evidence
of the fat condition of thc miniug Industry. To date the shipments total
4041 tons.
For 1900 thc exports from this division amounted to 2847 tons, made

During the week a number of telegrams passed between the Ontario*
Slocan Lumber Co. at Orillia and the
city council relative to the mill site
aud the position of the municipality
relative thereto.   Tho talk over the
vires* wus evidently si.iisfaetory, as
tne council put their pi'opositf">n in
writing and sen  '  out by Tuesday's
mail. It is fully   x pee ted the council
will subscribe to their original agree
ment, and then the whole matter will
ceme belore the L&tepayers early in |

great difficulty in keating the various owners of the property desired
for the mill site, but the task has been
almost completed and options secured.   The city will got off chea*x-r

He sprang lo his feet and fell to
common and violent cursing, luvokiug
the Immediate and miraculous Intervention of that Power which he had
all his life Insulted and delicti. The
lady received the torrent without a
word. What can one say Id reply lo a
man who only curses? Rut she was
afraid of him; bis words were like
blows. The headlong rage of the man
cowed ber; she bent her head and covered her face with her hands.
Theu Mr. Purden ventured to Interfere. Tel me speak," he said. "The
thing Is done, lt cannot be undone.
Would tt not be better to make the
best of It? Does it belp auy of us—
does it belp your lordship—to revile
and to threaten*'"
The bridegroom turned upon him
savagely. "You to speak!" he said.
"You are too mealy mouthed and too
virtuous even to tear up a page from
a register."
"1 do not wish to be unfrocked or to
be sent to the plantations, my lord.
Meautlme It would be doing you the
worst service In the world If I were to
tear out tlmt page."
"Oli, you iall.! You always talk!"
"Of old. my lord, I have Mometlmee
talked lis some purpose."
"Talk again llis-n. What do you
luiisii by disservice*! You will say
next, 1 srppose, that this play acting
was fortunate for me."
"We may sometimes turn disasters
Into victories. If your lordship will
listen."
Ills patron sat dowu again, the late
storm leaving Its trace In a scowling
face and twitching lips.
"Wby the dickens wasn't Molly there?
How did this womnn find oul? How
did she know that Molly was uot coining?"
"I can answer these questions," said
the lady     "Molly wonlsl not come be
cause she Icnrned  Inst night, Just lu
time, certain facts In thc private life
of the bridegroom."
"Who told Molly?"
"1 say that I know nothing.   She has
been warned.    That Is all 1 can tell
you. and sbe bas been advised to take
no further steps until full explanations
bave been made io answer to these rumors."
"Full   explanations."   repeated   Mr.
I Purden.   "Dear, deurl   Most unfortu-

that I can suggest." He looked at
tbe Lady Anastasia. "It will be perhaps at first distasteful to her ladyship. It has, bowever, the very great
advantage of securing the fortune,
which, 1 take It, Is what your lordship
chiefly desires. As regards the girl.
she Is, In point of manners and appear

"I care nothing about tbe girl. Rut
bang me if I understand one single syllable of wbat you mean—or bow you

"A moment Madam saw her way
to the revenge of jealousy. She took
tbe place of Ibe bride, and sbe was
married as Miss Molly. She signed the
name of Molly Miller; the license was
In that name The clerk who was

tbe news all over tbe plsce. We have

all the time? Captain Crowle, perhaps,
though 1 doubt. Tlie girl herself- Rut
wbo will believe her? My lord, you
have mnrrled Miss Molly nnd not tbe
Lady Anustnsiii."
"What then?"
"You have only to clnlm yuur briile."
"Sir, you forget that I am the brlsle,"
i.miy Anastasia Interposed quickly,
Mr. I'urden bowed and smiled, rubbing his hands softly. "With submission, madam. I do not advise that his
lordship should carry her off nor that
he should claim her ad inensam et tho-
rum, as we scholars say. Hla principles would not, I am sure, allow that
he should carry off an unmarried woman. Not nt all. He will leave her wltb
her friends. Indeed lie would prefer te
do so. I suggest only that we should
proclaim thu mnrriage ami lay hands
upon tlie fortune."
"And what nm I to be?"
"His lordship's best friend. You will
rescue hlin in his deepest need; you
will restore lilm to nftlueiice. lt will
be a service, minium, of tlie purest and
most disinterested iill'eetlsin, lustcud of
an ugly nud ruinous revenge. Heavens, can you hesitate?*'
They both looked ut Anastasia, who
made no response, her eyes in her lap.
"The trick will lie with us three,"
the tempter went on. "Neither of us
will reveal It."
"As regards Jealousy. Anastasia,"
said Pyllngdole, "the girl will be here,
nmi everything will continue just as
before."
She threw up her urms und sprung to
er feet.    "Oh," she cried. "It Is the
J I most monstrous villainy!"
|     "We need not think of the girl.    We
must think of ourselves."
"Tlie fortune Is Immense, Anastasia.
It Is  ridiculous  Hint  the girl  Hhould
bave so much.    We will leave her a
competence, and there nro the jewels."
Lady Anastasia gasped, and Fyllngdale continued:
"You yourself will adorn these jewels. It will be my greatest pleasure to
atone for my Ul Judged deception by
giving you all those Jewels— the diamonds, tbe rubles, the chains of pearls
aud all the rest of the pretty, glittering
things." He took her bands, the parson looking on all the time as a physician looks on at a bloodletting or an
operation. "What can that girl do
with the Jewels? They shall all be
yours. Forgive me, Anastasia, and let
us again work together, as we bave already done, you aud I, with no more
jealousy and no more suspicious."
He kissed ber hand. His manner
was chauged almost suddenly; be became soft, caressing and persuasive.
It was the old charm, wblcb the poor
lady could never resist. She suffered
him to bold her hand; she allowed him
to kiss ber; ber eyes grew humid.
"Oh," she murmured, "I must do everything you ask, Ludovic, If you are
only kind!"
"How can I be anything but kind?"
be replied, wltb a smile.   "You must
forget aud forgive.   The thought that
all I bad schemed and planned for was
torn from me, and by you—Anastasia,
by  you—was   too  much.     My   mind
was upset; I knew not what I said.
Forgive me."
"Oh, Ludovlc, I forgive!"
"And the jewels shall atone, tbe lovely jewels.   You shall have them all."
"You will truly give me the Jewels?"
"Truly, my Anastasia,   After all, we
are  man  and   wife.    Henceforth  we
shall only live for each other.    Your
happiness shall be mine.   Tbe jewels
shall be yours."
She yielded. She fell Into bis arms.
There was a complete, a touching, reconciliation.
Lord Fyllngdale was going to declare
tbat It was Molly and none other who
was married that morning at 6 o'clock
and to assume the rights and powers
of a husband. So that the news of his
evil reputation came, after all, too late
to be of any use. And as for explanations, wbo would bave tbe right to ask
any explanations of a married man on
behalf of his wife?
The counsel learned In the law gave
his written opinion that, considering
that tbe marriage ceremony was fixed
for 6 a. m„ the bridegroom had no
knowledge of the bride's Intention not
to present herself; that be left his
lodgings a few minutes before 0; that
a few minutes after C one Pentecrosse,
well known to tbe lady, witnessed the
marriage ceremony and believed the
bride to be the lady In question, dressed as she was accustomed to dress, although he did not see her face; that
tbe parish clerk also recognized the
Isdy; thnt tbe clergyman wns ready to
swear that the bride was the lady, and
that the registers showed her signature, there could be no chance whatever of success ln disputing or denying
the marriage.

"Indeed 1 kuow not which."
"Did you speak to me?   Did you eoa-

Molly said nothing for awhile; then
she said gently: "The letter from the

CHAPTER XVT.
A DAV OF FATE.
HIS was the day when
all the villainy came
to a head and did its
worst nnd met with
the first Installment
of exposure. I bave
told you what was
doue at tbe church
was   our   own   bewilder-
and   what
ment, not knowing what to believe or
bow to explain things. For my own
part, though I might bave guessed because I bad discovered the jealousy of
Lady Anastasia. yet tbe truth, even tbe
possibility of the truth, never came Into
my head. I had no manner of doubt In
my own mind but it was Molly herself
and none other whom I saw standing
as a bride at the altar rail with Lord
Fyllngdale for a bridegroom. The fact,
I say, admitted of ne dispute. Yet why
should Molly change her mind? And
why should she deny tlie fnct?
I sought her at the house. I begged
her to come Into the gnrtlen nnd to tnlk
with me privately. Then I asked those
two questions. Her nnswer lo both of
them wns most amazing.
"Jack," she snld, "I kuow not what
you jnenn. I have not changed my
mind. It Is Impossible for me to marry
a man at whom such things can bo
■eilil unless he can prove thnt they are
false. Mow can you think tlmt I have
changed my tnlnd? As regards this
talk about an early Wedding, what do
1 know about Iti At <l o'clock I wns
In the kitchen with my mother and Nigra. I have not been out of the limine
at all."
Then I persisted. I asked ber If she
could have gone out and had perhaps
forgotten.
"Forgotten!" she repeated scornfully. "I>o you suppose that a woman
could by any possibility forget her own
v, eddliig? Rut what Is lt, Jack? What
Is In your mind?"
Theu I told ber. "Molly," 1 said,
"last night I forgot your letter. Thero
was so much to think and talk about
witli these dlRcloHiires thnt 1 forgot.
This morning I remembered. Then I
hurried ashore. Iran to the Crown. It
wns Just upon 0. I wns too late. Ills
lordship had gone out In a chair. I
ran to the church. It was just after
0. The doors were open. I heard
Voices. I went In, Molly. Do not sny
that I am dreaming. I how ynu—you,
I soy—you yourself, witli your pink
silk cloak, the hood pulled over your
head, a domino to hide your face, Just
ns had been arrauged."
"You saw me, Jack? You saw me?
How could you see me?"
"And your hand was in Lord Fyllng-
dale'a, and Mr. I'urden was pronouncing the words which made you Ills
wife, 'Whom Ood hath joiued together
let uot man put asunder.' "
sin* stared at me with blank amassment.
"In my pink silk clonk? Jack, aro
you ln your right mind, or ls lt I my-
strous a falsehood as to steal out te
marry the man and then to declare that
I have never left the house? Oh, the
villain, the villain!" Her cheek was
aflame; her eyes flashed.
I seized her hand. "Molly," I cried,
"they shall all believe you. I will tell
the truth everywhere."
Just then tbe garden door was thrown
open, and Snm Semple appeared. With
a smiling face and a bending knee he
advanced, bowing low.
"Permit me to offer congratulations
to the Countess of Fyllngdale."
"I am not a countess. I am plain
Molly Miller."
Snm looked disconcerted nnd puzzled.
I perceived that, plot or no plot, he had
no band in lt.
"I am come," he said, "from his lord-
sblp"-
"I bave notblng to do with his lordship."
"Surely, madam; surely, my lady,
there is some misunderstanding. I am
sent by his lordship with his compliments to ask when It will be convenient for the countess to receive him."
"You have been Informed, I suppose,
that I was married to bim this morn-
lug."
"Certainly, my lady."
"Then go back to Lord Fyllngdale
and tell bim tbat he Is a villain and a
liar, that I have lenrned his true character, that I am not married to him
and that If he ventures to molest me
my friends will protect me. Give bins
that message, sir, word for word."
"I believe, Sam." I snld, for his discomfiture nnd bewilderment made him
reel and stngger, "that you have no
hand In this new villainy. It wns you.
however, wbo brought thnt man to
Lynn, knowing his true character and
his antecedents. Let us never see your
face here again. Go. If I thought you
were In the plot, I would serve you
again as tbe captain served you three
years ago."
He went nway without another word.
Then the captain came home, his
face troubled.
"I know not." ho said, "what has
happened In this place. I hnve see-s
Lord Fylingdnle. I told him of tbe
charges and accusations."
"Well, did he deny them?"
"He denied nothing, and he admitted nothing. He says thnt you married
blm this morning, Molly."
"I know. He has sent Sam Semple
here with the same story. Coptala,
you believe me, do you not?"
"Believe you, Molly? Why. If I did
not believe you, I should believe nothing.   Believe .vou?   My dear, i would

Then the vicar enmo ngnln, nntl the

every theory by examples chosen from

GRAIN AND PRODTJOE.
WHEAT—During the past week tbo
speculative wheat markets in tlio
States huve developed considerable
weakness and displayed a good deal
of nervousness. Prices have rosordod
a gradual decline every day without
any sign of reaction until yesterday
when closing p,icca were ic hotter
thun the day before. Thu decline on
the week is ljc to 2c per bushel.
There is littlo to hu said about tbo
crops at present. Winter wheat harvest is over in the Stutes and Europe as far north as the north of
France, lt begins in the south of
Knglnntl this week and tlm spring
wheat harvest in tho southern part
of South Dakota and Southern Min-
ni'solu is beginning this week. In
Argentina the weather has been favorable for tin* new crop which bus
got a good start, ln Australia some
rains bad fallen in the wheat districts, but not sullicient to make the
situation for the new crop favorable,
and. at. present Australia is not
counted us un exporter for next
year. India has been u good shipper
to Europe recently, but the prospect
for the coming season's crop is not
flattering.
Tbere i.s very little doing in Manitoba, wheat nnd the business for the
season 1001-3 is getting pretty well
wound up. I'rjices are firm and held
above export value, but this is owing to the moderate quantity of
wheat available to work on. The
slock at Port William is wearing
down and shipment from the country
points is on a gradually decreasing
siale. At the close of Inst week

A New Brunswick Postmaster Tolls
of His Efforts to Cure His Kidney
to Curo His Kidney Trouble—Hs
Suffered for Years and Tried Many
Medicines, but Only Recently Found
the Right One.
Lower Windsor, N.B., Aug. 4. (Sps>
ciul.)—Mr. T. H. Belyea, postmaster
ol this place, has made a very interesting Statement of his experience in
his efforts to be cured of Kidney
Trouble which has bothered him for
many years.
At times ho would have very bad
spells, and when these came on he
was ulinost laid up.
He tried several doctors and used
many medicines, but nothing seemed
to help him in the least.
Plasters, oils, liniments on the outside and doses of all kinds and descriptions taken internally seem to
have bu'. one result. He was no better.
Finally through reading an advertisement he was led to tho use of
Hodd's  Kidney Pills.   He says :
"Dodd's Kidney Pills wero so highly recommended for Kidney Trouble
that aftci reading some testimonials,
I concluded to try them according lo
directions.
"I hutl tried so many things that
I was very skeptical and had but little faith thut Dodd's Kidney Fills
or woulii help nie. However, 1 din
not use them long before I founsl
that they were all and more than
wus claimed for them.
"I have received more benefit irom
them than from any other medicine
I have ever used for they seem to
have made a complete cure of my
case.
"I feel as well as ever I did and
have not the slightest trace of the
Kidney Trouble that bothered me
ever so much.
"I want to say that I believe that
Dodd's Kidney Pills are the right
medicine for Kidney Trouble."
Mr. Belyea is very well known to
there are but few who have not been
aware of his serious illness.
Everyone is delighted ut his improved health and his published
statement has done much to make
Dodtl's Kidney Pills even more popular in this neighboihood than they
have been.

King Edward and his noble Rpousc.
Alexandra, have been permitted to
come into their full heritage and be
crowned rulers of the British Empire.
Modern life and usages tend not to
the preservation of the feudalism of
the old-world monarchies and aris
.toerscy, yet it is sale to say Britain's
reigning family never dwelt more
firmly on the throno or received
more lovalty from the nation than
new. The reason for it is that tbe
people enjoy a liberty unequalled the
world ovor.

Claim owners on Grobninn creek
complain bitterly of the lack of a
trail to that promising section,though
one lias been repeatedly promised
them by the government. Thsre aro
upwards of 60 claims being repre-
aentod yearly at the head of tho
croek and the labor of getting in|
supplies is tremendous. At present j
some of the claim holders go in by
•way of I'Uinon creek, which entails
about 30 miles of travel, whilo a
trail from tho ('. & K. railway woultl
do the trick in seven. Nelson businessmen do not seem much alive to
their own advantages or they would
build the trail thomsolves. The
county town has lost its old-time
vigor in looking after the iiovds of
the prospectors.
