In the absence of Mayor York,Aid,
Smith wns voted to the choir.
City Clerk Bcnlloy then read the

the following concessions: "1. Procure for us, free *if nil cost, a deed in

Tor, J. R. Parks, tho well known
mineralogist, is making a critical
examination of tlie character and extent of th? Arlington and Speculator
ore deposits, to determine tho most
economical method of treatment for
the ore. He is expected to formulate
a "plan by which the companies enn
handle their entire product—low
grade ore, damps, and i 11. He is
making a most exhaustive examina
tion and test, which is destined to
have a most beneficial result,
l'i'of. Parks is considered tlie best
mine geologist iu the west, and has a
splendid reputation, He is a graduate of Columbia College and has bad
22 years' practical experience in the
determination of ore deposits in North
and South America, lie has been
closely associated with the Slocan
"jver iir.ee lis discovery. His first
work was to report on the Kootenay
country for the Northern Pacific Mail*
ro.id and later on made an exhaustive report on tlie well known Blue
Hull and other leading properties for
the owners of lira Pilot Hay smelter.
Later on with the discovery of the
S|i)c:tn he went iu with the first l I'os
pectOl'S and has been in close touch
with the principal mines there ever
Since. His connection at the present
lime with the Slocan Star and Last

had some money out of ihe deal ar.d

had been put to work during the
weok tracing tho rich Mabou lead,
struck two in nths igo, on to the
Neepawa grp nd, and when this was
done the latter would be in n healthy
condition. It would give them two
parallel leads, carrying much ore of
a shipping quality. Amalgamated
with the Mabou and Ohio group and
it would make the biggest combination in the camp.

Rldgevnle was all excitement, and so
was Harrison, three miles down Ihe
North river road. Harrison, which took
to Itself airs and ({races owing to tbe
fact that It was ou the railroad, while
Hidgevale was not, bad bad a celebration In the morning, In which the town
parade had merged with tbo procession
ot u one ring circus that showed that
afternoon and evening. There had been

The' Harrlsonltes had never ceased
io crow over the good people of Ridge-
vale, and now Hidgevale was preparing
lo tiiUe Its revenge. Harrison was Invited over to witness a Washington's
birthday celebration concerning which
all facts wen* refused. But when Setb
Haskius drove over to Burden's grocery

sentiments of the givers. This , lew nf
the matter was heartily applauded, and
then through Hie gate came Pun Smith,
who had scorned the use sit' paper Can*'

wus startling, if not historically cor
rect
Under bis black cutaway coat he
sported a yellow vest, cut into squares
by red and green stripes and set off by
a massive brass watch chain and a
flaming red necUtle. His legs were Incased lu a pair of blue bicycle knickerbockers, the extremities being clothed
with a pair of white stockings, wlilcn
Danny McKeever of Harrison prompt
ly declared belonged to Dan's Aunt
Mary. In default of patent leather
pumps a pair of brand new rubbers
glistened almost as effectively.
.Pausing a moment to allow the rude
Harrlsonian laughter to subside, the
senior Washington approached his son
and in a copy book speech bestowed up
ou his hopeful offspring a toy hatchet.
After this be retired to enable tbe
youngster to chop down the evergreen.
which by courtesy was supposed to be
a fruit bearing tree.
All Hidgevale and the most of Mar
rlson held Its breath as the future hero
of the American people raised his u.x
on high. With a swinging stroke he
brought It down ou the carefully mark

with Instructions. There was a ring

hope of tbe Washlngtons executed with
great spirit on unrehearsed war dunce

that would cause such a commonplace

The secret was pretty well kept, but
toward the end all Harrison knew that

Haskius, Seth's youngest sun, was to

while Dan Smith was to be tbe elder

For this reason they were not surprised on tbe morning of the 2'Jtl wben tbey

And the benches aud some extra chairs
arranged ln rows In front or the building. At the farther end tbe snow bad
been shoveled from the frozen earth,
forming a sort of stage. Branches of
cut evergreens masked tbe bare brown
fence boards, and in tbe geometrical
center of the cleared rectaugle n slugle
small evergreen was firmly planted.
Around tbe lower part of the tree a
band of bark, wired on, showed where
tbe shrub bad been nearly chopped
through. It bad been demonstrated
wben the boys were over tu Haskius'
lot for the evergreens thut, with the toy
hatchet furnished young Haskius, the
demolition of tbo tree would require
something like an bour and a half.
Thle wonld have greatly retarded the
crlspness of tbe performance. A piece
of white cloth fastened on the side fur
thest from tbe audience showed the
little fellow where to mako tbe initial
attack.
Most of the Hidgevale people bad ul

tbe guests from Harrison began to nr

visitors. Wben the last sleighloud bud

"Greg" over ln Harrison, opened the
proceedings with an oration which hail
originally appeared as un editorial In
a New York paper two years before.
Silas Hopkins followed with an extemporaneous address punctuated by "cr"
and "as I was saying." Tbe First
Header class sang an ode to Washington composed by Kinsman and set to

THAT there was something on
Mr. Bowser's mind ns he came
home to dinner the otber evening Mrs. Bowser saw at a
Xlunee, but ns be seemed puzzled rath-
vr than troubled she held her peace until he should he ready to explain. Tbey
had finished dinner, and hn had almost
smoked out his cigar as be rend bis paper, when be carelessly remarked:
"Mrs.   Bowser,  do  you   know  that
spring Is hero at last?"
"Why, yes, of course," Bhe replied.
"It ls early spring, but when 1 was
a boy 1 used to go out Into the fields
The   Musical  Gtmniltes.
The Guamites are a musical people.
Tbe well to do own pianos and are fair
musicians. Others huve organs, und
many, many more possess accordions.
They eujoy singing and are fond of
American popular songs. Tbelr own
songs are rather weird and mournful,
though ulways harmonious. At night
the voices rise lu sharp, nasal tones,
singing the "novena," a term applied
to nine days of special worship to some
particular saint Novenas ure ever In
evidence, for no sooner do they finish
with one than It Is time for another to
begin; consequently '•neighborhood
sings" are frequent
The accordions are pleasing to tht
natives at their dances and fandangos
or weddings. These latter always occur Thursday mornings nt 4 o'clock.
Tbe names are cried In the church
three times before the wedding. Wednesday evening there Is a social gathering of the families and friends of the
bride nnd bridegroom, willi dancing
und refreshments. Guests uccompuny
the huppy pair to the church, where
the priest unites them. Often there
ure three or four weddings ou the same
morning, nud happiness reigns supreme.- I m lepeud s> u t.
Origin,  of tbe   Wedding  ItltiK.
The wedding ring is the subject of
quaint historical fads uud endless su
perstitlons. It was probably chosen as
the symbol of marriage more for convenience than anything else. It is supposed to be a symbol of unbroken love
and of power and to carry special curative virtues wltb it The old good luck
saying about lt la, "As your wedding
ring wears your cares will wear
nway." The undents, 1*11 uy among
the rest, believed thnt u delicate nerve
run directly from the "ring finger" to
the heart and that the ring placed on
tbat tltiger was very closely connected
with the heurt. In early Christian
marriages the bridegroom put the ring
lirst on the bride's thumb, then on the
first linger, then on the second untl last
of all on tbe third, saying as he disl. "In
tbe nu nn* of the Fnther uud of the Son
and of tlie Holy (ihost" Tbe thumb
and Orst two lingers represented tbe
trinity, the next linger wns the one
tbe ring was left on. to show that, next
to tiod, a woman's duly wus lo her
husband. —Ladies' Horn* Journal.
Hardly Complimentary.
A certain nuthor, having explained
the nature of his occupation to an old
Manx woman, was hardly prepared for
the comment, "Well, well, what does It
mutter so long us a body makes his
llvln' honestlyV" the words being evidently meant to put bits on better
terms with himself. But worse still

not a very popular one. Having received
preferment elsewhere, he started on n
round of farewell visits, but without
bearing a single regret.
At lost one oltl woman told him she
was "mortal sorry." In his delight the
vicar lot curiosity outrun discretion,
and he nsked for her reason. "Well,"
said sbe, with touching candor, "we've
had a lot o' pass'ns over here from

"WOMAN, I DON'T LIKE YOUR TONKl"
at this season and look for crocuses.
The crocus is about the tlrst spring
flower. Isn't it?"
"Yes; the crocus nnd dandelion."
Mr. Bowser hitched around uneasily
and had no more to say for five minutes. Then he softly observed:
"The Homans bad a queer superstition regarding the crocus, and there
may have been something In It. I presume you have read of It?"
"I don't remember," she answered,
looking at him In amazement that he
should have been delving into Human
history or paying any more heed to crocuses than to brickbats.
"The superstition seems to have
arisen with Xerxes, nnd It appears
thnt he who went forth on a moonlight
night and found a blue crocus was sure
to be elevated to [tower and fame."
"Bnt 1 thought you said It was a Roman superstition?"
"So 1 did, anil so it was."
"But Xerxes was not a Roman."
"There you go! Always ready to
full me a liar at tbe slightest excuse I
If vou'd look Into history now and
then Insteud of keeping to novels
you'd have more sense ln your bead.
Maybe you think Xerxes was a Dutch
man?"
"I know that be was a Persian," she
quietly replied.
"Not by a Jugful!"
She went over to the bookcase nnd
took out n volume of the encyclopedia,
and. turning to the proper letter, sbe
laid the book down before Mr. Bowser
that he might read:
"Xerxes I., king of Persia, was the
eldest son of Darius aud bis second
wife Atossa," etc.
"Yes, I see what lt says," observed
Mr. Bowser, "but does that make the
slightest difference to me? When I
said that Xerxes was a Roman, that
settled It, and all the encyclopedias In
the world couldn't change lt. It Is
quite probable, however, that there
were a dozen Xerxes banging around
nt thnt time and that one of thetu may
have been king or Persia."
"Yes. tbat may have been the wny
of It," snld Mrs. Bowser, wbo saw
a way to dodge the threatened row
and was quick to take advantage of
It. The family cat bad figured on ragtime and gave her a reproachful glance
rs she crawfished.
"Whoever found a blue crocus on a
moonlight night" repeated Mr. Bowser as he Walked to and fro. "I suppose there are blue crocuses na well as
other colors?"
"I never saw one."
"You never saw a whale, either, nnd
yet whales exist. All the crocuses 1
bave ever seen were yellow, but 1 never saw nny except by daylight. Why
shouldn't the light of tbe moon cast a
blue shade over certain spring dowers?"
"I know of no reason why Ware you
thinking or going out this evening 10
look for a blue crocus and become a
Xerxes?"
"Woman. I don't like your tone!" exclaimed Mr. Howw-r as be felt the Ntlnn
of her words. "I can excuse your Ignorance of ancient history, you being
n woman, but I'll be banged If .vou can
Indulge in sarcasm toward ine!  ir b
pleases ine to go out untl look for a blue
crocus in order to confirm or explode a
historic superstition, you can bet your
life 1 sball go!"
The cat mine out from under the
lounge with new hopes In her heart,
and Mrs. Bowser maintained n discreet
silence. After pacing back and forth
for awhile with what he hoped WBS a
Xerxes stride Mr. Bowser advanced to
a back window jiml dri'W aside the
curtain. There was a bright moon, and
he could see every beer bottle. Ionia lo
can and clothespin lying around (he
yard. There were pools of water and
Kevtritl Boft spots, uud It didn't look to
lie an Inviting field for crocuses of any
Color,  He might biro given up the Idea
had not Mrs. Bowser suddenly asked:
"How do you pronounce the name
Xerxes?"
"As It sboultl bo pronounced, of
course," he replied.
"But bow?"
"X*er-x-e».   Have jrou any fault to
nmi with that?"
••It is pronounced as if spelled
'Zerkzes,' Y'ou kuow tbere Is a town
tn Ohio called Xenla. Nobody calls It
•X-enla,' but lt is called "/enla.' "
Mr. Bowser turned to ber with his
face aflame and choked und gusped for
a full mluuto before he could exclulm:
"Woman, tbls ls too much—too much'
Do you think my bead la stuffed wltb
sawdust? Did any husband ever heur
of such cheek ln a wife!"
"I was simply correcting you." she
suid In humble tones.
He glared at her and kicked out his
legs to see If they were asleep, but tbe
English language afforded him no
words In which to reply. In this emergency ho put on his hat nnd went out
Into the back yard to look for that
blue crocus. He'd have gone If a
whole army blocked the path. Tbe cat
went wltb him as fur ns the door and
then halted. Mr. Bowser sent his gaze
up and down nud around, but he mistook not the yellow labels of the to-
muto caus uor the blue ones of tbe table sauce bottles for the spring (lowers
he sought. At length he wandered
forth, stepping Into u pool of water ut
the first stride, but totally Ignoring It.
He had reached the rear fence In his
stroll and bad mcntully taken uote of
several weeds struggling for life under
the cold moonlight when something
whizzed by his head. Some boy lu the
neighborhood had observed his wanderings and decided to interrupt them
with a potato. Where there Is ono
boy there nre two—three —six. Mr.
Bowser had scarcely resumed bis
search for that blue headed X-er-x-es
crocus when those six boys let fly with
cans nnd bottles and chunks of coal.
AJttX stiffened up und dolled the lightning for about five seconds. Theu the
lightning plunked him iu nbout a dozen
places at once, und he turned and
fled.
"Did ye git what ye were lookin'
•or?" nsked tho cook as he bounfJeo
Into the kitchen just abend of un empty beer bottle. But he did not stop to
tnswer. He was waiting to pour out
the vluls of his wrath upon Mrs. Bow-
rer. He asceuded the basement stairs
two steps ut u time, but when he stood
before ber he could do no more thuu
gasp nnd stutter.
"1 wouldn't try to tnlk if 1 were
you," she soothingly said ns she rose
up. "Just drop dowu on the lounge

At last, itner live nights on th*
(r;un we arrived on Saturday nioi'*
STlune 1st, at Camp Lritu. trod
"l,kh polnl we were to be wnt to
our different destinations.
°V were met by Mr. Barry, the
head master, und some of us stall,
und from that moment until the day
we got our marching orders we received the utmost consideration from
ull whom wa met. Nothing that
could ndil to our comfort und convenience was forgotten, nnd thc week
vo spent .it Irene will remain in onr
memories as one of ths plrusuntest ot
our South African experiences.
•Ihere wore nil sorts of merry-makings that week, partly in om* liohor,
and partly' to celebrate the peace, A
dinner on Monday evening, at which
the dignitaries of the Kdticntion Department from Pretoria were present, and which was really a very
enjoyable   affair,
Toasts were drunk in good port,
speeches were made—one by Br. Mullen, of Now Brunswick, wbo is to be
principal ol tho now Normal school
at Johannesburg—and afterwards in
tho drawing-room wo hud some extremely good music. Mr. Barry,
who 1ms a Una voice, sang "The
Bandolero," and "Drink to Me Only
With 'ihine Eyes." Mr. Llgortwood
on..' of ihe Education Department
men, playing tho accompaniment as
well us a proteselonal, Mr. Usher,
ono of the otlU'ers, sang "Sigh no
More. Ladies," In the swiftest of
ten ir voices, and altogether the music lovers amongst us had a genuine
treat.
Then thcro was an ox-cart picnic,
where wu snt on mattresses— about
twenty of us—in a huge wagon that
scorned to be quite without springs,
and jolted jollily over the rough
veldt, tho driver cracking his whip,
shouting at his ten oxen, an-:! taking
the utmost pains to drive over every stone and hillock he could get
in tho way of. After the usual picnic tea we were surrounded by Kaffir ihildrcn, clamoring for what was
left, l could slo nothing but gaze at
them and admire their varied costumes.
There was one little girl whs ap-
pealfd very strongly to my sympathies, because she seemed to be
humpbacked, a thing very unusual
among tht^e sturdy, straight-'.imbed
dwellers in th-.. open uir. 1 pointed
her out to thi colonel, and l.e was

For this reason they were not surprised on tbe morning of the 'JIM when tbey

cut evergreens masked tbe bare brown
fence boards, and In the geometrical
center of the cleared rectangle a single
small evergreen was firmly plnnied.
Around tbe lower part of tbe tree n
band of bark, wired on, showed where
tbe shrub had been nearly chopped
through. It had been demonstrate.!
when tbe boys were over lu Huskins'
lot for tbe evergreens that, with tlie toy
hatchet furnished youug Huskins, tbe
demolition of tbo tree would require
something like an hour and a half.
Tbls wonld have greatly retarded the
crlspness of tbe performance. A piece
of white clotb fastened on the side far
thest from tbe audience showed the
little fellow where to make tbe Initial
attack.
Most of the Hidgevale people bad nl
ready gathered in the luclosure when
tbe guests from Harrison begnu to nr
rive. But sents had been saved for the
visitors. When the last sleigbload bud
driven up, Kinsman, who wns called
"professor" ln HldgevuTe und plain
"Greg" over In Harrison, opi-ned the
proceedings wltb an oration wblcb bail
originally appeared as an editorial in
a New York paper two years before.
tillas Hopkins followed wltb au extemporaneous address punctuated by "er"
and "as 1 was saying." Tbe First
Header class sang an ode to Washington composed by Kinsman and set to
the tune of "Bringing ln the Sheaves."
Ella Garrison, who wus known to fume
as a child elocutionist, recited u poem
on Washington from Spellmnn's Fourth
Render. There was a quartet by tlie
choir of the First M. 10. church, uud
tben tbe stuge was cleared for tbe
event of the afternoon.
Around the corner of the woodshed

tbe bestowal of many gifts. Ills Joj

then through the gate came Dan Smith,
who hnd scorned the use of paper cam-

was startling, If not historically cor

Under his black cutaway coat he
sported a yellow vest, cut into squares
by red nnd green stripes nnd set off by
a massive brass watch chain und a
flaming red necktie. His legs were In
cased In a pair of blue bicycle knickerbockers, the extremities being clothed
with n pair of white stockings, which
Danny McKeever of Harrison prompt
ly declared belonged to Dun's Aunt
Mnry. In default of patent leather

.Pausing a moment to allow the rude
llarrisoiiiuii luughter to subside, the
senior Wushlngton approached bis boh

After this he retired to enable the
youngster to chop down the evergreen,
which by courtesy was supposed to bill fruit bearing tree.
All Hidgevale and the most of Harrison held its breath us the future hero
of the American people raised his ux

They enjoy singing und are fond of
American popular souks. Their own

to uiue days of special worship to some

The accordions are pleasing to the

The wedding ring is tbe subject of

and of power and to carry special curative virtues with It Tbe old good luck

the rest believed that a delicate nerve

THAT there was something on
Mr. Bowser's mind as he enme
home to dinner the other evening Mrs. Bowser saw at a
glance, but ns be seemed puzzled rather than troubled sbe held her peace until he should be ready to explain. They
lind finished dinner, and he. hnd almost
smoked out his clgn .8 '■• " "1 his paper, when he carelessly rs u.arked:
"Mrs.   Bowser,   do   you   know   that
spring is here at Inst?"
"Why, yes, of course," she replied.
"It Is early spring, but when I wns
a boy I used to go out into the fields
"WOMAN, I DON'T LIKE YOUB TONE I"
at this season and look for crocuses.
The crocus is about the first spring
flower, isn't it?"
"Yes; tlie crocus and dandelion."
Mr. Bowser hitched around uueasily
and lind no more to sny for Ave min
utes.  Then be softly observed:
"The Romans had a queer superstition regarding the crocus, and there
may bave been something in it. I presume you huve read of lt?"
"I don't remember," she answered,
looking at him in amazement that he
should hnve been delving Into Human
history or paying nny more heed to crocuses than to brickbats.
"The superstition seems to have
arisen with Xerxes, nnd It appears
tlmt he who went forth on a moonlight
night nnd found a blue crocus was sure
to be elevated to power und fame."
"But I thought you said it was a Roman superstition?
"So 1 did, and so It was."
"But Xerxes was not u Roman."
"There you go! Always ready to
call me n liar nt the slightest excuse!
if you'd look Into history now nnd
then Insteud of keeping to uovels
you'd hnve more sense In your bend.
Maybe you think Xerxes was a Dutch
mun?"
"1 ki-ow that be was a Persian." she
quietly replied.
"Not by n Jugful!"
She went over to the bookcase and
took out n volume of the encyclopedia.
and. turning to the proper letter, she
laid the book down before Mr. Bowser
thnt be might rend:
"Xerxes I., king of Persia, wns the
eldest son of Darius and bis second
wife Atossa," etc.
"Yes. 1 see what lt says," observed
Mr. Bowser, "but does that make the
slightest difference to me? When 1
■nid tbnt Xerxes was a Roman, that
settled it, and all the encyclopedias in
tbe world couldn't change it. It Is
quite probable, bowever, that there
were a dozen Xerxes banging around
at thnt time nnd that one of them tuny
hnve been king of Persia."
"Yes. that mny bave been tbe wny
of it," said Mrs. Bowser, wbo saw
a wny to dodge the threatened row
and was quick to tnke advantage of
lt. Tbe family cat hnd figured on ragtime and gave her a reproachful glance
ss she crawfished.
"Whoever found a blue crocus on a
moonlight nlgbt" repeated Mr. Bowser ns lie walked to nnd fro. "I suppose tbere are blue crocuses as well as
otber colors?"
"I never saw one."
"You never saw a wbnle. either, and
yet whales exist. All tbe crocuses 1
have ever seen were yellow, but I never saw nny except by daylight. Why
shouldn't the light of the moon cust a
blue shade over certain spring flowers?"
"I know of no reason why. Wore you
thinking of going out this evening lo
look for a blue crocus and become a
Xerxes?"
"Woman. I don't like your tone!" exclaimed Mr. Bowser as he felt the sting
of he* words. "I can excuse your Ignorance of ancient history, yon being
u woman, but I'll bo banged if .vou can
Indulge ill sarcasm tow aril me! If ll
pleases me to go out and look for a blue
crocus In sutler to confirm or oxplode a
historic superstition, you can bet your
life I shnll go!"
Tlie cut enme out from under the
lounge  wilh  new   hopes In her heart,
and Mrs. Bowser maintained u discreet
silence. After pacing buck and forth
fur awhile with what be hoped was a
Xerxes stride Mr. Bowser advanced lo
n   buck   window ^intl  drew  aside  tbe
curtain. There was a bright moon, and
he could see every beer bottle, tomato
can nnd clothespin lying uroimd Ibe
yaid. There were pools of water and
sevtrnl soft spots, untl It didn't look to
lie nn inviting field for crocuses of nny
color. He might bflVO given up the Idea
had not Mrs. Bowser suddenly usketl:
"How do you pronounce the name
Xerxes?"
"As lt should bo pronounced, of
course," he replied.
"But how?"
"X-er-x-es.   Have you any fault to
iin.i with that?"
••It Is pronounced us if spelled
■Zerkzes.' Vou know there Is n town
lis Ohio called Xenia. .Nobody calls It
•Xcnln,' but It Is called '/.eniii.' "
Mr. Bowser turned to her with his
face aflame and choked and gasped for
a full minute before he could exclaim:
"Woman, this is too muck-too much1
Do you think my head Is stuffed with
sawdust? Did any husband ever bear
of such cheek ln n wife!"
••1 was simply correcting you." she
said in humble tones.
He glared ut her and kicked out his
legs to see If they were asleep, but the
English language afforded him no
words In which to reply. In this emergency ho put on his hat nnd went out
into the bnck yard to look for that
blue crocus. He'd have gone If B
whole nnny blocked the path. The cat
went With bim as far ns the door nnd
then halted. Mr. Bowser sent his gaze
up nnd down and around, but he mistook not the yellow lube's of the to-
mato cans nor the blue ones of the tnble sauce bottles for tlie spring flowers
he sought At length he wandered
forth, stepping into u pool of wnter at
the first stride, but totally ignoring it.
He had reached the rear fence in his
stroll nud had mentally taken uote of
several weeds struggling for life under
tbe cold moonlight when something
whizzed by bis head. Some boy lu the
neighborhood had observed his wanderings und decided to Interrupt ihein
with a potnto. Where there Is one
boy tbere are two—three—six. Mr.
Bowser hnd scarcely resumed his
search for that blue headed X-er-x-es
crocus when those six boys let fly with
cans and bottles and chunks of coal.
Ajax stiffened up and defied the lightning for about five seconds. Then the
lightning plunked him iu nbout a dozen
places nt once, und be turned nnd
fled.
"Did ye git what ye were lookin'

Into the kitchen just ahead of an empty beer bottle. But he did not stop to
tnswer. He was waiting to pour out
tbe vials of his wrath upon Mrs. Bow-
rer. He asceuded the basement stairs
two steps ut a time, but when be stood
before her be could do no more thuu
gasp and stutter.
"1 wouldn't try to tnlk If I were

Thero was one little girl who up-
pealed very strongly to my sympathies, because she seemed ta be
humpbacked, a thing very unusual
among these sturdy, Btralgbt-'.irnbed
dwellers in the open air. I pointed
her out to ihi colonel, and he was
overcome, with mirth ut my expressions nf pity. Come nn.l see," ho
said and he caught the little girl,
who looked about ten years olsl, pulled her thaw) down from her shoul-
di-is and there was the funniest little blue'*, baby h sn,'ing to her neck,
its littlo iseuds'oi eyes staring up at
me, nn 1 its queer head covorod with
tufts of wool that looked exactly as
if they were stuck on at Intervals,
and never could have grown out of
the  scalp in the ordinary way.
We visited the schools loo, nnd
found the children doing excellent
work. 'lhe trn h -is ull Beamed t n

Charming to hear the little tilings
whenever we n»*t them, say, "Oood
morning," with a pretty English uc-
ccnt. whilo they lookesl up al you
wiih bright, smiling faces Pui of an
eager desire to catch a look or woid
of   approval.

many of tbem may not be aware of
the means used by Mr. iioulungor in
accomplishing the wonderful recovery
which he bus been fortunate enough
lo bring about.
Dodd's Kidney l'ills cured him und
he has made this fact public in a
grateful letter, which reads us lol-
lows :
"1 desire to say that 1 was completely cured of Kidney Disease and
Urinary Trouble by liodd's Kiilnev
Pills.
"I was so bail thut 1 was obliged
to urinate often, with much pain.
They have relieved me of the pts.in
and the results in every way are satisfactory.
"I think it i.s prudent for every
family to keep them and use them."
When a man of Mr. Boulanger's
standing puts himself on record so
frankly nnd positively, there can bo
no doubt but that he has experienced
all and more than he states in his
letter.
Dodd's Kidney l'ills have now permanently established themselves as
un infallible lemedy for all urinary
trouble, and the closing words ol
Mr. Boulanger's letter aru an advice
which every household should observe

Kl'ITOHIAL    CKOl'I'INUS.
The Conservatives are meeting: in
■convention at Revclstoko. A little
sagacity of the days of Sir John A.
shown and a careful grasping-of the
situation in British Columbia and the
Tories w>ll rehabilitate tlicmsel *
as a party and carve out the way for
a useful career.
All is not wull in the provincial
.cibinet, inasmuch as tine Grit anil
Tory elements do not assimilate
worth a cent, Minister Wells,who is
a Grit.coinplains that Minister Prior's
Tory proclivities are becoming t®o
.aggressive to be agreeable and he
won't have it. It is reported he has
wired Papa Dunsmuir to come home
from England at once and spank, or
otherwise discipline,the unruly Prior
feller.
Perhaps never before has there
been such an optimistic feeling pervading the dry ore belt as at present,
•caused by the increased number of
properties operating, a pletititude of
work, and the several rich strikes ol
late. That on the Speculator last
week ins had a remarkable stimulating effect, ns assuring another big;
producing mine and again deaioi -
atrating thc resources of the camp.
Ore makes money and money talks
mx,     .*••' ——
Though old the following has list
none of its strength of purpose: "In
tho beginning God created the heavens, the earth, then the editor, then
the liberal advertiser and thc prompt
paying subscriber—which was all
very good, The next day it snowed
and he created the man who decs net
believe in advertising, another who
does not take the home paper—then
lie rested. Then the devil gol into
the moulding room and created the
man who takes the paper for year*
and fails to pay for it. After he had
completed that sorry job, and having
a few lumps left, lie created the ex-
cuso ofa man who settled his arrearages by instructing the postmaster to
mark his paper 'refused.' "
According to the Province, the C.
I'.R. is to expend a mint of money in
improving then1 wharfage facilities
at Vancouver, in order to accotnmo
■date their ever-increasing traffic.
They also contemplate erecting grain
elevators and flour mills. Production in the Territories and Manitoba
has expanded so much that the east
era outlet by rail is not sufficient ta
meet the strain and n western escape
must be provided. The Improve
ments at Vanc.'Uvcr also Indicate a
mighty Increase in Canada's trade
with the Orient and Australia, which
it is mete should be handled through
the Canadian port rather than at
Seattle, Tacoma or San Francisco.
It is a fortunate tiling for Vancouver
that the shaping of its destiny is
largely in tho hands of tlie (J.P.K.
Compulsory arbitration has made
many converts during tlie past year
among tho newspaper craft, so much
so that opposition to the measure is-
exceptional. Papers are supposed io
voica the sentiments of the people
and, accordingly, it may be truthfully said, thc majority of the popula
tion ofthe country wants to see the
idea incorporated on the statute
ixwks of the land. Does It not seem
strange, then, that our legislators are
making no move to, aids meeting
the public demand. Object lessons
ns to the advantages of compulsory
arbitration are forthcoming weekly
