Thia ia the hardent time of the year to cater to one's
appetite. -Cooking over a hot stove does not help it
any, so to avoid the discomfort and have something
palateable, try ume of our Meats, ready cooked:—
)AHT MUTTON,   ROAST BEEF,  VEAL LOAF,  CHICKEN,
TONGUE, TURKEY.
Then for something nice in Table Fruit, try a tin of
Pineapple, one of the nicest fruits for the hot weather.

T. Giflbrd will lie the Tory candidate in New Westmiuster.
Grand Porks Tories organized last
week, more than 70 being present,
Tho Lilierals of Greenwood will
meet oa the 17th to choose a candidate.
T. W. Paterson has been noniinatad
by the Lilierals in the Islands constituency.
Denis Murphy will probably run for
the Grits against Cbas.Semltn in Yale.
Small hope for Denis.
Tha Lillooet Prospector says the
Conservatives will carry every one of
the up country seats.
The refusal of the Labor men to
fuse in Vancouver has proved a knock
out blow to thc Grits.
The Conservative choice in Rossland
seems to lie between Hon. C. Mackintosh and A. S. Goodeve.
"Let 'er Flicker" Kellie is considered the Grit choice for Revelstoke,with
Tom Taylor for the Tories.
Tom Cavin, a C.P.R. conductor, is
the probable Tory candidate for Cranbrook.   His election is conceded.
Th<*. Liberals hero are working industriously, their aim being to capturo
all the ranchers' votes down the valley.
Thr* Liberals of the Cranbrook riding will meet shortly to nominate a
candidate, Dr. Kiug being the favorite
so far.
Conservative organization is working smoothly and well in Victoria and
ths election of the full party ticket is
assured.
So far the Toxiaa arc organizing
with more vim throughout the country
thrm the Grits, and are more confident
of success.
T. Sterling, of Kelowna. has boon
nominated toeonts*stO!.anagaii against
Price Ellison. Price is considered an
easy winner.
Of tho 42 seats, the Kamloops Standard says the Conservatives will carry
27 seats, the Liliernls 12, and the Independents 3.
F. .1. Deane, of the Nelson News, is
likely to lie the Liberal candidats- in
Kamloops. F. Fulton is the likely
Tory candidate.
Hon. Mr. Tatlow is certain of election in Vancouver. Thc balance of
the Conservative ticket has much the
better of the game.
Three nominations have so far lieen
made and they are all Grits Tavlor
in Nelson. Sterling in Okanagan, and
Paterson in thc Islands.
John L. Rotallack may oppose Rob
Green iu Kaslo, but thr latter will win
out. The Ferguson Eagle is supporting tho minister of mines.
Judging from the remarks of the
Wilmer Outcrop, a Grit shs'ot. \V. C.
Wells has small chance of holding the
Columbia riding for the Grits.
Wullie Mclnnes has [ailed to land
the Labor vote in Nanaimo for the
Grits, and he may seek nomination in
Alberni, which he hopes to carry.
L. W. Shatford, of Fairview.brother
of Walter and Beckford  Shatfortl. of
this place, will probably stand in Si
milkanieen in the Conservative inter
est.
John Houston is running up a big
list of votes in Nelson.and that's what
counts. S. S. Taylor, the Grit nominee, is running strong, so tlie fight
will be warm.
Rumor has it that Billie MacAdams
will return to Sandon and stand iu
this riding as the Lalior candidate. Tn
the event of a three-cornered light developing, the Grit would certainly lie
the under dog.
An enthusiastic meeting of the executive of the local  Conservative asssi-
ciation  was held in  U.K. .loi anil's
oHii'ii, Tuesday evening, antl considerable business transacted.   The niein
bershlp roll is steadily increasing and
good work is lieing done among the
voters, three more lieing turned in at
the meeting. In future the associatism
will meet in the room adjoining the
city hall, it having lieen secured till
after the elections.   The room will lm

power to place booms in Upper Arrow

J. Frank Collom. ina ua gin g director
of the Arlington, will have an application liefore ths gold commissioner on
July 18 for a water right ou Springer creek. The water is to be diverted
at ? point 4030 feet alio ve the junction
of Speculator and Spriugcr creoks.and
is to lv* convoys.*d to the said junction
bv means of a flunie or pipe line. The
difference iu altitude between tho two
points is 260 feet. Four hundred
inches of water is asked for, the stat**d
object of its use lieing the treatment
of ores. This move of Mr. Coilom's
may be regarded as one of the main
preliminaries looking to the establishment of the big mill for tho treatment
of the Arlington ores.
Kuux Church Concert.
The ladies of Knox church scored a
success with their entertainment.given
in the Music Hall ou Friday evening,
realizing upwards of $50. The programme was of interost. in that Miss
Milne and Lome York, two prime favorites, appeared for thc last time ere
leaving the city; also from the initial
public appearance here of Mrs. Patre-
(iiiin, whose two solos at once established her as a songstress of pleasing
abilities. A number of selections were
given by the band. A literal supply
of strawberries, icecream and other
refreshments was provided, rounding
out a pleasant evening.
from Road Inspector Moore, George
Nichol will take out a gang of men on
Monday to make good the repairs to
the Springer creek road. One bridge
has to be built, some cribbing put iu
and several slides cleaned out. The
prompt repairing of the road is giving
great satisfaction to mine and claim
owners, enabling heavier supplies to
go up and ore to come down.
TRN MILK CLAIMS.
Intstreetlag Haws Broaght Down or Gsaod
Striker..
Frank Wells is reported to have cut
into a fine bunch of oreou the Hydra-
bad, situated on the south side of the
creek, on which he has been working
for some time. When first discovered
a big blowout of ore was found, but
dug out by subsequent bonders. It is
evident Frank has hit on a permanent
chute below.
Pete Swan and W. Clough, owners
of the Highland Light, came down
this week, bringing with them some
magnificent samples of ore. They had
cut into a healthy bunch of it in the
drift, taking out enough to fill twenty
sacks. The ore is of the dry character,
carrying much grey copper and sulphides, and giving very high assays.
The owners were so encouraged that
they secured more supplies and went
up again Tuesday-determined to open
up the property and prove it a mine.
The Ernest Mansfield outfit is in
luck.an exceptionally promising strike
having been made ou the Black Hawk
aud Daisy claims,situated in the same
vicinity as the Highland Light. W.
E. Boie and Martin Isaacson were doing assessment and ran on to a new
lodge, in the face of a precipitous
bluff. Iu fact, there are two ledges,
but the lower reveals no pay values.
Both are lying somewhat fiat and with
the usual northeast trend. The upper
ledge has been traced 500 feet and is
sii feet wide, carrying a quartz seam
10 to 14 inches in width, and which is
heavily splashed with ore. The ore is
also of the dry variety, but is richer
than the average, ruby silver being
plainly discernible. A numlier of
shots were put into the ledge where
traced and revealed ore in each case,
making it oue of the best things ou
the creek. Samples of the new find
have been sent to the company in
Europe, and if they decide to open up
the claims they will have a paying
proposition.
Bark ror the Summer.
C. A. Hurlburt, managing dire-tor
of the Republic, returned on Monday
from D.'troit, where he spent the win-
tar and which is the headquarters of
the company. He purposes remaining
here for the summer, having the personal superintendence of the mine.
Mr. Hurlburt is much pleased with
the developments at the Republic and
points to the .shipments of ore as a
practical demonstration sif the worth
of the propeity. He says there will
be no cessation of labor at the mine
and that his companv is here to stay.
He received a warm welcome from his
many friends.
Kaaai to Myrtle Group.
Tattersall Bros, and Tom Waring,
owners of the Myrtle group, have just
completed cutting out the right of
way for a rond connecting thoir property with the Ottawa, a distance of
1 .V miles. It will enable sleighs to go
right up from town in the winter and
will make wasy the shipment of ore.
The owners aro awaiting the repairing
make a trial
of the Springer roasl to
shipment of the ore taken
winter.

Sir,—The Foresters, Minors aud the
Knights of Pythias met on Sunday,
the 21st June, to hold in union aud
unison memorial services in Bosun
hall. The morn was pleasant and
balmy. Delegations and visitors came

at the Miners' Union hall and formed
and marched down Sixth street in full
regalia of their respective orders, entered Bosun hall at 2 p.m.and quickly
filled thc "body of the building in three
double-seated parallel rows, while a
bright galaxv of the "ladies of the
lake and the mountain" filled the
aisles and gallery. The platform was
decorated with bouquets of all the
wild and garden flowers of the season
-rosebuds, daisies, pinks, roses, lilies,
daffadowndillies, svringas, etc. Conspicuous among the bouquets was one
in which the German iris displayed its
beautiful colors, and the other (Mrs.
Bolander's) carried the fleur de lis io
its delicate shades of mauve and lavender. Thc social services were attended to by Chancellor McLean of
the Knights of Pythias, and the religious services wero conducted bv Rev.
Melntyie, of Sandon, who called to
his aid a transiont traveler on his way
home from the Assembly at Vancouver, Rev. Anderson Rogers, of Now

How oft would I taste you again.

MISS WATSON Ill-OWNKD.
News was brought to town on Wednesday evening of a sad fatality near
Winlaw, whereby Miss A. Watson lost
her life. On Tuesday evening she and
her young brother Walter—they having beon delivering some straw ben its
—n lad named Jamieson, and a man
got inte a boat to cross to their homo
on the west bank of Slocan river.
Wben close to the other shore the
boat got caught in a heavy swirl of
the current, and became unmanageable. The Jamieson lad grabbed an
overhanging branch and escaped and
ran for help. The others were thrown
iuto tho water, the mau and young
Watson fetching up against a log,
from which thoy were subsequently
rescued. Young Watson had a narrow escape, a favoring knot catching
him by the waist band and holding
him,with his head partly in the water.
The swift current carried the boat and
Miss Watson down against a log jam,
and despite every effort to save her,
she was sucked under, where the liody
is uow supposed to be, all efforts to
grapple with it lieing unsuccessful,
owing to the hiph water and sviift
current. Deceased was about '20 t-a.vra

"As If she had been a piece of furniture. Then 1 asked where my husband was, and she said he had gone
out for a doctor. So she made me lie
down. Probably 1 seemed to be there
on that bed, but In reality—my own
reality—I was playing In that old barnstorming company and stti'dylng,
studying, studying on long parts thnt
wero always chauglng, hut sometimes
I was a little girl again ln a town wny
out In Michigan, running through the
Etreets, wltb my long legs dying nnd
my heels touching tbe back of ray
head, as my mother used to say. I
stole the neighbors' flowers In the
scented June eveuiugs nnd staid out
under the little whispering stars till
ray mother came, weeping with anxiety, to hrlug me home. And, strangely enough, right In the midst of it nil
there stood the doctor, a tall, gaunt
young man, asking ine how I felt.
But where was my husband?
" 'He bus not got back,' said the woman. 'I was afraid to wait any longer, so 1 got this gentleman, who Is a
New York doctor stopping In the
hotel.'
"Then I felt something sharp pricking my arm and afterward the pnln
was easier, and my mind suddenly be-
mme as clear as lt ts now. I beard
the doctor say that I would be all
right when I bad bad some sleep, and
then my husband appeared, looking In
between the curtains that hung by the
bedroom door. It seems that be hnd
not brought a doctor, but bad left
word for one to come.
"My husband remained there, between tho curtains, perfectly rigid,
staring, pale as a *,.iosL   lie was look-
"Youl" flfofai Ute doctor,
Ing at tha docte* beside uiy bed, and
glancing up 1 «a*.v that the doctor wns
staring at hlm.
"'ioul' said ths doctor, and he took
three strides out of the room, my husband .backing, away as the other advanced.
"They whunered together; tliey
thought I could pot hear. But. Brenda,
I would have heard them If they had
been In New York.
"'She says you were married this
afternoon,' said the dsictor. 'How Is
that?'
" 'Who In the devil's name called you
In? demanded my husband. 'Where
did you corns' from?*
" 'This is L'tute prison business,'
sa.'d the doctor, without minding the
questions. 'You ire living legally
separated from your wife, but you are
not divorced, and you never will be by
your own consent, for her father Is
paying you to behave yourself.'
" 'There has been ci marriage here,'
said my husband. 'Don't sar anything. Tbls Is a mere freak of mine.
I'll mako It right with you If you'll
keep quiet.'
" 'You lie,' said the doctor, and then,
'Am I too late to save her?'
"My husband answered Tea.' Brenda,
how Is It possible for a humnn being
to utter a falsehood like that? I wns
no more to hlm than you are except
that I had promised before God to be
his wife. And the doctor looked hlm
In the eyes n moment and then struck
him across the face with the back of
his open hand uud went out of tho
room.
"My husband mine to the curtains
nnd looked In; then he approached thc
bed, and I groaned us loud as I could.
At that he seemed to lose his wits. He
ran around the room aimlessly and at
last snatched his hat from, the floor
and rushed out. 1 suppose he was going for auother doctor.
"VVhen he was gone, 1 Invented an
errand and scut the woman uwny. Then
I got up nnd dressed.    I don't know
how It was possible for me to do It,
but I seemed to be as light ns a feather.   I got out of the hotel easily enough
and took a cab to tlie railroad station.
I had not money enough for a sleeper,
. so I rode hi a day conch all tho way to
New. York,   but   my' mind   was  In   &
..thousand  places,  and  some  of   theui
'".werti beautiful,'and I was happy there,
and again I was lu terror and pnln.
"When I left the train at Jersey City,
my head was bursting upon my shoulders nnd the'air was -fire. Honestly,
Brenda, when the ferryboat ran Into
the slip on Ihls side, I thought It was
tho mouth of the Infernal regions. It
looked like n great cave full of Hume!'
and 11 seemed thai I was being crushed
and thrust Into It. Yet I must have
had some part of my senses, for I
found a cnb nnd gave the driver my
address. And so I came home from \
my wedding Jour ney, Brand's, I let
myself In with my key, uud (lie people
In the house never knew thai I hnd
i been nway thnt utghi. They founJ
' mc 111 ntul got a doctor for me, and he-
fore the day was over I wns nearly
well The doctor said I must have eat-
en some sort of a thing—whnt do they
call It—I always think of tomatoes."
"Ptomaines," said Brenda. "Oh, you
poor child; you poor, wretched, lucky
little Elsie' I am so glad, so glad!"
"Would you believe," said Elsie,
"that that mnn tried to get my henrt
back again, to plead his cause with me?
; Well, he did, aud, though I had peace
for quite a long time, of late I have
been much annoyed by hlm. You cun
understand uow why Clarence Aldeu's
love was torture to me. why — well,
why I bought the picture of Tantalus
to look nt, Brenda. Oh, I love hlm. I
love him so much! The feast ot the
' heart that 1 can never havel He ls
everything I wnnt. Brenda."
"But wby ln the nam* of all martyr
dom should you hesitate to tell this sto-
! ry to hlm7" exclnlmed Brenda.    'Whnt
bar can It be to your marriage?"
|    "One day," said Elsie slowly, "when
1 I  was beginning to love Clarence so
that my heart sang of hlm all the time.
I was walking on Broadway and hnd
stopped to look In at a Jeweler's win-
dow.   And I glanced up, and Clnreuce
was coming down the street with thnt
doctor!"
"The ono who attended you In Phil?
! adclpbla?"
"Yes," said Elsie. "They were lnugh-
; lug and talking together, and I shrank
Into a doorway and died of shame as
they passed.    Suppose they  bad seeu
I me?"
"I think no harm would have come of
■ It," said Brenda.
"Suppose I married Clarence and we
! should meet him theu?"
"But, my dear," exclaimed  Brenda.

"You don't know men," said Elsie,
slinking her head. "Ono little doubt,
and there Is misery for a lifetime. I
heard Clarence speak onco of a woman
who had gono wrong. It frightened my
bones until they turned to dust In my
body."
"But, Elsie, you haven't done any
wrong," pleaded Brenda. "You were
cruelly deceived"—
"I no more than tho others," replied
Elsie. "Every woman who goes wrong
Is deceived, or there would he no wrong

"What do you mean?"
"nis wife froni whom he wnB sepa

Elsie. "She died two days before my
marriage. That's why I called him
my husband all the way through the
story."
Hia iisiri was speechless for some sec

"1 don't see tbat that makes It any
worse," she said at last. "Better, I
should say. Sucb a marriage cau be
easily annulled. It does not even require a divorce."
"It requires legal proceedings," snid
Elsie. "It means publicity nud branding. It means that Clarence Alden's
wife will be marked as a woman with
a past, with a romantic sen mini attached to her name. It would be bad
enough, Brenda, for him to marry me
anyway, but an actress, with that

LDEN looked In nt St.
Winifred's about 0
o'clock, as was his custom before golug to
dinner. He had always left word where
he should dine and
had never gone far

On tbls occasion he met Mr. Elmendorf at the head of the stairs by which

ever.   Sbe ought to be dead after whnt
she's been through, but she Isn't. She's
fine, I assure you."
"What has she-been through?" demanded Alden, and the detective bo-
came singularly embarrassed. He would
say nothing except that Elsie had had
a hard day.
"But I've struck a little clew In the
case," ho continued, brightening. "It
looks to rae liko a sure thing. But don't
ask what It Is Just yet. All I waul ls
the names of all the doctors you kuow
In New York."
"All the doctors I know!" echoed Alden In surprise. "Isn't that rather a
large order? How am I going to remember them all?"
"We shan't need absolutely all," said
the detective. "You cau skip tbo old
ones and tbe fat ones and the short
ones. In fact, I want a tall, thin, gaunt
man. and If you could remember walking down Broadway with blm awhile
ago, perhaps two months"—
Alden laughed gently.
"I say, Brother Elmendorf," said he,
"you're rattled, aren't you?"
"Perhaps 1 am," the detective admitted. "This new clew absolutely stands
my case on Its bead. It seems to prove
squarely and fairly that everything 1
had figured on was not only wrong: it
was upside down. However, let us not
be hasty. Let us think about the doctors.   I'll take a list of tlism."
And be produced pencil and paper
for that purpose.
"Now," said bo, "we'll begin with
A."
"Tall, thin, young doctor, whoso
name begins with 'A?'" said Alden.
"I don't know any; but, passing to B.
there's Blalr."
Elmendorf leaned back against the
wall and put the pencil and paper Into
bis pockets.
"Do you mean to tell mo t!:at you
knew Dr. A. G. Blnlr before this ense
came up?" he asked In a sort of hopeless tone almost laughable.
"Why, certainly," replied Alden. "I'd
met him."
"You showed no sign of It over at
Mrs. Simmons'," said Elmendorf.
"Didn't I? Well, the Lord knows
what I did there. Blalr certainly bowed to me."
"I was watching you," said Blmendorf. "However, this simplifies matters.   You didn't know Blair well?'
"Not Intimately. I'd met him several
times, and,"' he added, with a smile.
"I may have walked down Broadway
with him. but I don't remember."
"It's only a small mntter." said tbe
detective, wltb a resumption of his
usual demeanor. "I wnut to ask Blnlr
a question; that's all."
"I'll go over with you," said Alden.
"Wait till I have seen Kendall."
He wnlked toward the doctor's room
and at the first turn of tho hull encountered Brenda.

Mr. Albert IT. Leako, Superintendent of Technioej und Manual Training and Housohold Science, bus re-
portod to the Minister of Education
the results of his observations mude
during his recent trip t<> inspect tho
schools of Ni'w York, Brooklyn, iTer*
soy City, unsl Philadelphia.
After detailed references I') Hu."
American system of eilucation In the
subjects of his department, Mr,
Leake calls attention to tho, fact
that the public schools sorve the
community less than one-fourth ol
the time, nnd only a small portion
of tho community nt that. But tb'.V
could, he said, bo utilized not only
for the education of tho children,
but as well for the general education of tho ciimiiiunily, nnd at pro-
si'iit ho believes the public school
fulls far short of what it might do
for tho public welfare.
But what can be done for the education of B community morn than is
now done In tho public schools, he
asks? This, he continues, is u proper qui'Stion, and tho Sps-yers School
(Pennsylvania),    will    undertake   in
pari to answer it This school proposes to place its entire plant at the
disposul of the community after
school hours afternoon and ovenlngi
anil nil day on Saturday, holidays,
nmi during tlio rogulej" vacations.
Tho gymnusimn uml kindergarten
rooms are so arranged as to be eus-
lly  used     for  public     lectures,  sociul
meetings and entertainments. Boys'
clubs, girls' clubs, nnd mothers' meetings will bo encouraged, The gymnasium, bnths nnd librury, will be
open to the public when not nctunlly
ncoded Ior the school. Classes will
be formed to meet afternoons and
evenings in sewing, cooking nnd
housekeeping, in music, in free hand
drawing and design, and In woodworking, and in other simple industrial arts. Regular night school
classes will be formed if there is u
demand for theni. In short, the purpose is to serve the community in
every possible way, and particularly
to experiment in ways unsl means of
bridging the gap between the close
of the public school work und the
time when young men and Women
settle down to permanent employment nt eighteen or twenty yeurs
of age.

Water In the Kulahisrl lleaert.

During a certain part of the year sharp

roaring torrents, The bushmen know
how to lind wiita'r by digging in the

New tiara.
It Is suggested by Louis Rabourdln, a
French writer, that ln each of the new
stars that blaze forth In the heavens
from time to time wc see the destruction V>f a celestial body by u volcanic
cataclysm. At uny rate, he says, If
part <»f the earth's crust underlying the
ocean should givo way our earth would
doubtless present iu succession to a
distant observer the same series of appearances that we witness in the case
of "novae," or new stars. First there
would be nn outburst 6f blazing hydrogen from the sea water decomposed
by the earth's Internal heat, then fusion of the whole crust, reducing the
globe again to a molten state, and then
the gradual extinction of its light owing to cooling. As cooling would first
take place locally, we should have a
variable star, the darkened portions
being periodically brought into view
by the rotation of the globe.

l»ntuley, is one of the cjred, und
his story is- u splendid example ol thc
I work  Dodd's Kiilney l'ills aro doing.
i "For over eight years," suys Mr.
Burns, "I suffered from what tho
doctors pronounced t'hronic Inflammation of the Loins nnd Kidneys. In
thu yeur 18'JG it got so bad that J
could scarcely walk, sit or sleep. I
was aliuut to give up when an ad-
veitiss'ti.t'i.t led me t'. try Dodd's
Kidney Fills and tliey did a wonderful  work  for mo.
"Dodd's Kidney Pills snved my life

A Bird That la Fenred.
The elster (Flea candata) is a bird
(hat is respected and feared throughout south Uerinany. It belongs to the
raven tribe and is about the size of a
dove, with black and white feathers
and long, pointed tall. It builds Its
nest in orchards, uud its life is sacred.
If lt Is seen three times in succession
ou the sunn' house top ln a place remote
from Its home lt Is believed to be "a
eure sign of death in that house. If it
flies over a house where any one ls 111
and gives Us peculiar ery the sick person Is sure to die, but if It does not
scream the patient may recover. It Is
better for the sick person if the bird
•iocs not come near.
No one could be hired to bother these
birds for fear they might seek revenge,
and if by chance oue of them should
die it is a sign of bad luck to the owner of the property where It was found.
The bird ls a valuable Insect destroyer
and In this way probably more than
compensates for the fear lt occasions
among the farmers.

To Induce Humility In ■*- Peacock.
If you wish to take the conceit out of
a peaeiiek pull out his tall feathers, and
as soon as he finds the i;lory of his
plumage gone he becomes the humblest, most subdued und ashamed looking bird that ever walked the earth. A
peacock in full feather is so vulu and
conceited as sometimes to bo really
troublesome. Not satisfied with si-uull-
lng at the top of his discordant voice
nnd wilh puradlng up und down the
Walks with expanded plumage, he will
nttuek cats, dogs and even children and
has been known to seriously injure
small boys or girls that were Incautious enough to venture within his
reach.
Plucking his tall feathers, however,
onuses ull his courage to evaporate.
He will sneak nruuiul the yard like a
Whipped spaniel, will keep out of sight
ns much as possible, and you will bear
nothing of bim until bis plumage bus
again grown.

Dumas, liko Balzac, was foud of his

loved Porthos best. The great, strong,

son louiiil Dumas careworn, wretched,

what is it, then'/" "I am miserable."
"Why';" "This morning I killed l'or-

A  Clever   Method   of  Ste-illnK.
Aii ingenious and successful triek
was played at a I-ondon Bnt In broad

at 3 o'clock nnd Inquired whether Mr.
Crey was at home. "No, sir," said the
Janitor. "Lie rarely If ever comes back
from the temple before 5 o'clock."
"That is strange," returned the other,
"since I know he has an appointment
here with a Mr. Johnson at 4 o'clock."
Then he went bis way.
At 4 o'clock to the minute Mr. Johnson called and. giving his name, was
of course allowed to wait ln Mr.
Grey's apartments, which he denuded
of everything of "portable value" In
ten minutes r.nd then walked »ut. observing :is be passed the porter thnt be

Parrots nre vegetarians. They live
Chiefly upon a light but uutritiuus
diet of fruit nud ss-s-sls or upon the
abundant nectar of rich tropical dowers. And It ls mainly for the sake of
getting at their chosen food that they
have developed the large nud power-

most tropical fruit eaters, like the

FRIDAY, JULY 3id,1903.
KflVITORIAL   CROITINUS.
Don't be mistaken. The old voters'
lists are all cancelled and overybody
must make a new application to get
on.   Save your franchise.
Canada has increased wonderfully
in labor strength of recent years, now
' numbering 1400 international and federal labor unions, aggregating 150,000
members. In the last three years no
less than 1000 unious have been organized throughout the Dominion.
Mineowners are expecting the news
any day that the Dominion govern-
1 ment has decided on a liberal bounty
for the encouragement of the silver-
lead industry, the bulk of the bounty
going direct to the producer. The
result would be a general activity in
' the Slocan, with increased forces at
the mines and a much larger output.
Financial authorities are looking for
silver being standardized in the near
future at 65 cents an ounce, which
will still further help out the mine-
owners.
The Liberal majority in the Ontario
legislature has adopted the whitewashing report of the commission trying
' tho Gamey charges against the government. Not so, however, with the
public at large, the concensus of opinion being that the accused have been
' proven guilty. James sSomerville, ex-
member for Dundas in the Dominion
' house and a prominent Liberal, has
made a public statement that he believes Gamey spoke the truth.and that
the political bias of the commissioners
' was responsible for the extraordinary
verdict reached, the evidence all tending to substantiate thc charges. Dom-
' inant Liberalism in Ontario stands for
a wretchedly low standard of political
• morality. ^^^^^^^^
What the workingmen of Vancouver
think of the Liberal party may be
judged by the following choice excerpt from the columns of the Western
Clarion, a loading Labor paper in that
' city: "The Liberal ringsters in this
' city have a record that smells strong
' enough in the nostrils of many of their
' own   supporters, and   to   foist   their
' grafting machine upon labor as its
natural ally would only bo suggested
by a party whose political inheritance
is reduced to graft and gall.   'Hands
off' were the  right  words and the
council (Trades & Labor) wisely spoke
them in time." So endeth the attempt
• of the machine to form a Lilieral- Labor
• combination, otherwise known as the
Lib-Labs.

On July 10 Sheriff Tuck will offer

H. B. sScott, of Burlington, Iowa, iu
remitting   his   subscription   for The
'Drill, is constrained to remark: "I
read your paper as it comes out with
much interest.   I onco arranged for
. the purchase with Mr. Fletcher of the
unsold part of thu town, und am sorry
that the sale fell through.   You have

External Shoe beauty ia simply a

Permanent beauty of form and finish
are results of the same methods which
secure to the shoe length of wear and stupe
retention viz:—invisible perfection of internal
workmanship.
The "Slater Shoe" with the prestige
of years of systematic advertising can afford
to take noclianccs by .skimping the internal
economy of its make up—can not risk tampering with the .fated rules of standard workmanship.
The "Slater Shoe" .has a name and
the prestige of a valuable trade mark to
