It was confidently believed the
meeting held on the 13th between the
city council, citizens and the Ontario-
Slocan Lumber Co., would have been
productive of lasting good feeling and
confidence. Such, however, has not
eventuated, but rather has there been
engendered since the nieeting a spirit
of unanimous and determined opposition to the mill people. It was incited
by the action of the company in attempting to import a couple of Chinese
shingle packers on Friday morning.
Thursday evening word iris brought
down from Rosebery that au effort
would be made to bring Chinese in,
and sure enough they arrived on the
company tug a little after 11 o'clock
next morning.   It did not take long
On Tuesday evening the local Liberal Association held its annual meeting in the Kilo block, there beiug a

F. Provost, J. Craig, H. L. Fife, H. J.
Robertson, J. Cross, R. A. Bradshaw.
It was decided to meet every Tuesday
evening in the Kilo block.
A resolution was passed asking R.
A, Bradshaw, on behalf of the local
association, to permit the use of his
name as their choice for the Lil-eral
candidate in the Slocan riding, to
which he consented. A committee

O, Life is sweet and the world is fair
When 'tis Hope that urges us on,
And we all are plunged in the depths of despair
The moment that Hope is gone.
And Hope is a charmer, and Hope is a stay,
An 1 Hope is a lieacon to brighten our way;
sSo let the Earth's shadows come ever so gray,
Tis Hope that heralds tho dawn.
And, whether wc look to thc world apart,
Or trusl in a dawu to lie,
We are brighter grown with a hope at heart
Of a future we Ion.**; to see.
Avid Hope comes ever before our sight,
To oliijei' our souls on tho darkest night,
Thef our path in the world may agam lie light
And our feet unfettered and free.
O, we may go up by the mountains of doubt
That are drear to the iuward ken,
Where the chidings of solf but find us out
And harry our souls again.
And Life without Love is a round of care.
And Love without Hope is a mockery bare;
But Hope, little angel, comes light as the air,
With its God-givsn mss'*agi* to men.
Despondency comes with forebodings dread
And tilling our hearts with gloom,
Till the best of life impulse is stagnant and dead
And our lives have lost all of their bloom.
O, man without Hope is a leaf on the blast,
Or a chip in the stream of Eternity cast;
A moment to linger, then swiftly borne past,
And hiistcned along to his doom.
Yet, let us have faith in the years to be,
And journey toward the dawn.
And the true Socialistical end we shall see
Of the plan that God's morcy has drawn.
And, what of avail are the times long sped,
The plans wo had formed, the ambitions lone- dead!
Let us live for tho future, keep looking ahead,
Where Hope keeps beckoning ou.

straightened bis tall figure Ull be stood

be dancing before his eyes.
"Vou can't mean it" he said, and his
race was bluish gray as be thought of

at this time. "Brenda"— he began, "1

Elsie did not fail to
comment with great

"You will be very

a little sigh, presumably for herself.
"My dear child," replied Brenda, "this
la altogether too sudden and Incoin-
preheuslble to suit a conventional person like myself.   This weird flirtation
of tbe madhouse which  Dr.   Kendall
and I seem to have begun In a manner

' temporary aberration of our minds and
hnve nothing to do wltb our hearts.   I

"I would never tell my mother," said
Elsie sadly. "She hns hnd trouble

you—why, lt seems to me that wc have

hold you by false pretenses. So hear
me, Brenda."
"It will not excite yon? It will uot

"It would excite and worry me If I

Brenda was silent She was saying
j to terself: "I am afraid. My heart Is

"It doesn't matter when, It doesn't

when nnd wbere fnte pleased I met a
I man who took a great liking to me.   I

He waa an educated man, nnd 1 was

"Well, Brenda, let's be fair.   I want-

! within a million miles of loving blm.
; but 1 was ready to be loved, Brenda;
i that's the truth about it    My heart
j was full of tenderness, and I saw tha
| whole world rose tinted In tbe light of
the dawn of love.   That's poetical. But
'. wait a minute.   I am coming to some-
I thing very unromantlc.    1 wrote this
story, Brenda—wrote It all down for a
great heart thrilling novel—and then
bad sense enough to barn It   But that
helps me to tell lt straight and you'll
catch fine phrases now and tben, but
I you won't laugh at me.
"Well, we were engaged, of course.

keep a little light burning In my room

"Where did fate find this precious
rnscnl?" whispered Brendn. "And why
did fate send blm to you?"
"Why did fate send a good man afterward?" said Elsie. "Why not before?
Well, 'the moving finger writes and.
having writ moves on'— It was to be.
Finally the gentleman announced that
a marriage under the laws of the state
of Pennsylvania would meet the requirements of the situation. I was a
good deal startled by tbls definite suggestion, and I wrote to my mother on
tbe subject for tbe first time. The gentleman took tbe letter to post and It
has not been delivered yet, thank heaven!
"Before lt was time to get an answer
sudden business of great Importance
called my fiance to Philadelphia. How
opportune! Well, Brenda, I packed a
little hand bag nnd went Wbat must
you tblnk of me?"
Brenda bent down gently and kissed
Elsie's band and held it against her
face.
"I don't know the story yet," she said,
"but you havo portrayed a thorough
scoundrel. And you have also shown
me a trusting and true hearted girl wbo
went to be married wltb an Innocent

"The gentleman In question bad no

had recently deprecated.
"I have your promise?" said be.
"I can't be sure of what you mean,"
she answered, smiling, "but whatever
It Is you have It!"
Tbey looked straight Into each other's eyes for a moment Then they
laughed together like happy children. Kendall's bands closed mora
tightly upon hers. He released tbem
gently and Inclined his head as be
turueil and left the room.
"Well, considering tbat thnt was only
a little Joke," said Elsie, "I don't think
1 ever saw so much for the money."
"Whnt could the man have meant?"
exclaimed Brenda.
"lie probably meant," said Elsie,
"that you were notblng more to blm

morning, and the chaperon of our
supper party rode In another direction
In another hansom with another man.
My e.srort talked about the •Kubalynt'

appreciated the beauties of thnt sublime composition. Afterwurd be spoke
of my work In n very earnest and encouraging way. He let me know that

drama nnd thnt hla criticism and advice would be of the greatest assistance. Tbnt, at least, waa tbe inference. Finally he bade me good night

In his manner wblcb let me kuow that
there was a romance lu bis life. Tbat
made mc feel safe, for at thnt time I
surely did not want him to fnll ln love
with me, und I still retained tbe delusion of my earlier years tbat romances
lu a person's life acted like vaccination.
"Tbe gentleman called upon me tbe
next afternoon, and he was very entertaining as well as Instructive. He
brought me a large book. I forget
what It was about. The next day be
took mc out to dinner, aud I remember
tbnt he gave me some very shrewd and
helpful criticism about my work.
Then I didu't see blm for two whole
days, aud I began to miss him very
much. At that time I was lonely. My
girl friends In tbe profession were all
out of town, and some of tbe men lu
tbe compuny who wished to be klud
to me were rough In tbelr ways—not
at all like tbe cultured gentleman
whose acquaintance I had been so
fortunate as to make."
"But didn't you ask about blm?" said
Brenda. "Didn't you find out how he
stood socially?"
Elsie laughed.
"How was I to find out any of those
things?" sbe said. "The world Is a big
place, ln tbe midst of which ts society

younger ones, against accidents. I only
knew tbat I liked this man and that he
seemed to be a true friend to me. What

own beautiful Ignorance?"
"I don't know," said Brenda aloud,
but to herself she was saying: "Tbe

"Presently I beard the story of the
romance In bis life," continued Elsie.
"It appeared that tho gentleman was
married-most unhappily. Whero was

courts tbe woman be bad sworn to love
and cherish. He mentioned several
high society precedents for tbls eon-
duct   In fact, he convinced me tbat
kept secret for awhile, and there seemed to be some slight objection to tbe
public dining room of the hotel where
our hansom eet us down. However,
we lunched tbere quite hastily, for I
had no appetite. Tben we re-entered
the hansom and went to look for a minister. We had remarkable difficulty in
finding one, considering that Philadelphia ls a large city full of churches, but
we finally succeeded. Then It appeared
that we had neglected to comply wltb
certain formalities, but the clergyman
was able to rectify thc matter, and so
we were married pitifully, as I see It
■ow, witb stupid old servants and a
chancu laborer wbo happened to be st

"Wben we got back to thc hotel. It
was 0 o'clock, and I was nearly famished. We hurried right Into the dining room, and my husband ordered a

tell you the unromautlc part. In the
midst of that dinner, and while I fancied tbat I was eating with a splendid
appetite, I was suddenly seized with
the most awful pain that ever devastated my poor little stomach. Ves,

things that weren't there. Tbe next

er will feel himself lost in tho mass

which will meet the student in every
branch of knowledge wbo really intends to master its ss.*crots." Posterity must look out for itself, and
meantime an encyclopaedia givs-s the
ordinary man a view of things, and
a view which is easily got, so that
even the ignoramus may appear
learned.
Making au l-iscyelupss-dia..
Notwithstanding the alphabetical
arrangement of articles in the modern encyclopaedia, it has been found
necessary to prepare an elaborate index to the Britannica, an undertaking so vast lhat it has not brought
a fortune to its publishers, who have
really been as much educationists as
m**n in charge of a commercial venture. Sir Donald Wallace, who gave
the dinner, was not only editor of
the lust edition of tho Britannica,
but also director of thc fors'ign ds_-
partment of The London Times, llis
co-editors were Mr. Hugh Chisholm
nnd Dr, Medley, of Yale, and they
siimnis.n.d to their aid all the noted
men in scia-nn-, literature, art. and
politics that were necessary to mako
the work authoritative. It is curious to note among the guests »hoso

Dodd's Kidney Pills and Collingwood
is not behind the rest. There are
scores of people here who have used
the great Kidney Remed*. and who
are not slow to tell of the splendid
results. Valentine Fisher, well-known
ln the town and surrounding country,
ls one of them.
"I was troubled with kidney disease for 18 years," Mr. Fisher says
In telling of his cure. "It developed
into sciatica, which located in my
Bide, so that I could not walk without a cane. I had to use. hypodermic
injections of morphine to ease the
pain.
"I tried different medical men and
niedlelnes with no good results till 1
was persuaded lo try Dodd's Kidney
Tills. Three boxes effected a perfect curs*. 1 can recommend Dodd's
Kidney l'ills to all who are suffering

GOOD HEALTH.
How It ll. 'a He Obtained and Bow It Can
He Preserved,
The health of the whole bosly depends upon the blood and nerves. Tbe
blood must be rich and pure, and tbe
nerves vigorous and strong. Therefore a medicine that makes new blood
and strengthens the nerves reaches
the root of many serious diseases. Dr.
William's Pink Pills will do this, and
this is the secret of their wonderful
power to conquer disease. Thousands
of eases—many of them In your own
neighborhood—have proved that Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills will cure rheumatism, sciatica, partial paralysis, St.
Vitus' dance, nervous and bilious
headache, heart trouble, indigestion,
neuralgia and the ailments that render
the lives of so many women a source
of misery. Mr. Jas. Adames, Brandon,
Man., says : "Uefore I began the use
it Dr Williams' Pink Pills my health
\pas much shattered with rhuemattsm,
nervous depression and sleeplessness.
For fully a year I rarely got a good
night's sleep. I gave the pills a thorough trial and can now truthfully nay
I could not wish for better health."
What Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
done for other? they will surely do
for you, hut you should be careful to
get the genuine with the full name.

Oriental View ol Woiiiasslssiosl.
Thc oriental idea of tlie freedom
which American women enjoy does not
accord with that of Anicrleuhs, Ono
Hindoo lady expressed hsivelf us i*i'Pilt-
ly shocked that American men should
COlIipel their women to ne, about in
public unprotected, their faces exposed
to the gaze of strangers, and a Hindoo
gentleman with whom wc talked thus
pxpressiHl himself on lhe subject of
oriental treatment of women:
"Vou say tbnt we do not honor our
women. Wby, let me tell you that all
Hindoo boys, till tbey arc ready to
learn the ways of men, are taught by
their mothers. We nre subject to our
mothers, and we know what ynu occidentals do not yet seem to realize—that
to bave good men and good citizens
wc must bave good mothers. You will
hardly find a Hindoo man, whatever
bis caste, daring to go against the
counsel of his mother. Can yiai suy as
much for American men?"
Could as much, do our renders think,
be said for American man's. There are
no asylums for helpless fathers and
mothers In the orient. So long as there
Is a corner and n crust to be gUared the
parents In the oriental family have the
lion's share.—Household.

The average baby la a good baby-
cheerful, smiling and bright When
he ls cross and fretful It la because he
Is unwell and he Is taking the only
means he has to let everybody know
he does not reel right When baby ls
cross, restless and sleepless don't dose
him with "soothing" stuffs which alwaya contain poisons. Baby's Own
Tablets are what is needed to put the
little one right. Give a cross baby an
occasional Tablet and see how quickly
he will be transformed Into a blight,
smiling, cooing, happy child. He will
sleep at night, and the mother will get
her rest too. You have a guarantee
that Baby's Own Tablets contain not
one particle of opiate or harmful drug.
In all the minor ailments from birth
up to ten or twelve years there ls
nothing to equal the Tablets. Mrs.
W. B. Anderson, Qoulals Blver, Ont.
says : "My little boy was very cross
and fretful and we got no rest with
hlm until we began using Baby's Own
Tablets. Since then baby rests well
and he ls now a fat, healthy boy."
You can get the Tablets from any
druggist, or they will be sent by mail
nt 25 cents a box by writing direct to

In Spain people smoke Incessantly

In all the minor theaters; they snioUe
ln nil the restaurants, ln the hotel dining rooms, and, of course. In the cafes.
In business offices the merchant nnd
his clerks smoke. In shops the shopman, while trying to sell goods to a
lady, will stop to roll a cigarette,
which, when lighted, he will puff In
her fuce. You see conductors and
drivers of tram cars smoking. All the
hackney cabmen smoke all the time,
while even coachmen and footmen of
private carriages sometimes smoke on
the box. Beggars approach you. cigarette In mouth, to whine for alius. If
you ask for tickets at a railway ollh'e,

the subjects of the Incas and Monte-

under the name of tuni.itl or tninatl.
Though Introiluc-csl into iiil rope almost as early as its congener, the potato, It wns many years before it ifiudo
Its way into popular favor. There It
was first known to the English as iove
apple, to the French hs pom ine d'nmoui
and to the Italians as potnl d'aniore.
and these names are still in use. perpetuating the old. widespread notiou
that Its use as food bad an influence

Many strange school customs prevail
in China. The girls in that country
seldom go to school unless tlis'y nre the
children of very rich people. School
work begins before daylight, and nfter
studying their lessons aloud for two
hours the pupils recite them. Tlu-y
then go home to breakfast, after which
they return and study again till dinner time. In the afternoon thoy go
Bgntn to school to prepare lessons for
the following day. By tliis time it is
night. This goes on every day of the
week, for there ls no such thing as the
Sunday holiday.

THE SLOCAN DRILL,
Slocan, B. C.
FRIDAY, JUNE 2t'th,1903.
v  KsUtTOIUAI.   CKUl'I'INUS.
In R. A. Bradshaw the Liberals of
the Slocan riding have a strong candidate and one who will -poll their full
rote.
It behoov-is the Conservatives to see
that every man Jack of their following gets on the voter's list. Get your
name iu early and thea rustle for some
•other fellow's.
Grit assertions of Tory discord in
Victoria were prove** decidedly false
by the big organization meeting held
there last week, when* vote of confidence ii the government and endorsa-
tion of the party platform was unanimously adopted. Can the Grits say
us much of their family atthe capital?
United as they are, the Tories in Victoria have an easy win.
S. S. Taylor, lawyer, has been selected as the Liberal candidate in Nelson,
two other stronger men having declined nomination, knowing the strength
of the man who would make the fight
against them. John Houston will undoubtedly be the Conservative nominee, and he will wiu out against any
combination put iu tho field to oppose
him. He has done it before and he
will do it again, aud there is a heap of
money available in Nelson to say so,
too.
The desperate straits to which the
Liberals have been reduced in order
to make some kind of a show at the
elections may be seeb by the overtures
made by them to the Trades & Labor
Council in Vancouver,to form a Labor
Liberal Alliance, and to nominate candidates in accordance. Remembering
the opposition successfully waged
against them by the Liberals in the
Dominion bye-election held in Burrard
•some months ago,the Labor men have
•emphatically dsiiclined such an alliance.
And rightly, too. The Liberals bave
ever been notorious for their coquetry
with the Labor vote, but this time the
sscheme is a little too rough. The
Grits are up against it.
It required a public and practical
demonstration to convince the Ontario-
Slocan Lumber Co. thnt the people of
this section are unwilling to tolerate
the presence of Chinamen, though repeatedly informed of the fact.   Years
ago the question was fought out in the
Slocan, and the district has remained
singularly free from the blight of the
yellow curse, aud it means to remain
so.    In this there is an iib-solute unanimity.   The ratepayers  of   thc   city
have had to pay a pretty stiff price to
get the compauy here, much more so,
indeed, than was originally intended,
but they do not kick at tluit provided
the industry will prove the lieiicht to
the   place   promised.   Oue  hundred
men steadily employed woultl materially promote the progress of the city,
but the citizens have a right to expect
that they shall be white men.    It was
for such the ratepayers saddled them
'selves with a grievous financial burden and they want naught else. Thore
'has been no occasion for the estrangement between company and citizens.
The company should have satisfied
themselves at the outset of existing
conditions   iu   the country and been
prepared to meet them.    When men
refuse to work with Chinese and when
their action is endorsed by the people,
it presents a problem that can only be
'solved in one way, that is to leave the
Chinese alone.   Mills in otber parts
of  the  interior of the province get
■-.long without Chinese help aud there
is no reason why the local institution
could not.   It is simply a question of i
wnge.   In British Columbia Chinese'
are lookt-d upon as n curse.   It is sin-1
ccrely to be hoped the situation  may j
so eventuate as to permit of the  local

Foot Comfort
Short talk* by tho Slater Shoe ad man, No. 3.
For fears the "-Slater Shoe" has been advertised as the shoe of twmfort—of foot ease.
Thousands of pairs of "Slater Shoes'' have
been bought because of this claim.
Nov imagine a man or woman buying a
second pair of "'Slater Shoes" after a course in
foot agony in a pair of .ill-fitting "Slaters."
If the u Slater Shoe" had not proven to
wearers its claims to comfort how long could
it have remained on the market, no matter how
loudly or skillfully It might have been advertised?
How long could the makers have continued
to expend large turns in advertising had the
"Slater Shoe" fallen short in any of its advertised
claims to comfort, wear and appearance ?
