need watching. They have a scheme
afoot now to get the old Six Mile
wagon road from Kootenay lake repaired, so as to head off the trade
with the claims at the head of Lemon
and Springer creeks. The idea is to
ro' i Slocan merchants of that territory,
something that should not be allowed.
The natural outlet of that country is
by way of Slocan valley and trade
must come this way. Slocan cannot
afford to lose it.
Tha City Coancll Will Now Have to Appoint A Has..
Apparently the qualified ratepayers
of Slocan are not anxious for the honor
attached to the position of Alderman.
The nominations held Wednesday to
fill the vacancy in the council board
caused by the resignation of Aid. McCallum were barren of results, no one
being willing to accept the office.
Since the above is the case it is
now-up to the city council to appoint
a man to fill the vacancy. There are
several in the city eligible for the position but they refuse to accept it.
In the event of the council being unable to make an appointment, the
mayor and five aldermen will have to
transact the city's business until the
regular annual election.

On tha   Slocan   River  Read   Near   Winlaw's Siding.
Passengers to Nelson by last Thursday's train had anything but a pleasant experience, having been mixed up
in a pretty bad wreck. They were
detained there six aud one-half hours
and by the time they reached Nelson
were in shape to masticato the toughest product Pat Burns could produce.
The train was a heavy one, having
five cars of coke, besides the baggage
and passenger cars. A couple of
these were 40-tonners and their weight
proved too much for the track.
In rounding a curve the rails
spread, letting the four end cars of
the train down on to the ties, every
one of which were broken for 100 feet.
At the same time four lengths of rails
were forced over on their side, making
altogether a bad mess. It was fortunate the engineer was running slowly,
otherwise there would have been a different story to tell. Word of the
wreck was sent to the work gang at
Winlaw and they came to the rescue.
New track had to be laid and then
the cars were slipped on the rails
again, the train crew, with their Alexanders, doing the trick.
It is the fourth wreck occurring in
in that vicinity within two weeks and
they have cost the company some
money. The road bed is in very bad
shape, there being but scant liallast-
ing, and the ties rotten aud insecure.
The heavy coke traffic of the past two
months, together with the effects of
the usual spring weather proving too
much for the road and makes- travel
somewhat exciting.

Alden was standing by a barred window looking out into a narrow, dark

continued to stare even after Machine

turned, however, when Captain Neale
greeted tbe two men by name. At the

"You probably beard that Mr. Alden

"That Isn't so. He's held ss a witness.
There's no charge sgalnst him. He

what was tbs right thing for blm to do.

There was silence of balf a minute,

"If you say so, tbst settles It," replies! Neale, rising and walking toward
the door. "Sorry to bave troubled you,
Mr. Alden.   Good night."
And be bowed as the three men
walked out, Maclane weak and trembling with excitement, Alden perfectly

that he had left his cane tn the captain's room, snd he returned. He was
absent about five minutes, at the exaltation of which time he Joined Maclane

N the wny to St Winifred's with Brenda
Mr. Barnes and Mr.
Haggerty exerted
themselves to be entertaining. By way
of opening a conversation and showing
that personal Interest which a lady always sppreclates Mr. Barnes mentioned the singular circumstance that hs
happened to know a mau who had seen
Miss Maclane that afternoon. Uo wondered whether Miss Maclane could
guess where lt was that this man had
seeu her. Upon Uremia's acknowledging that she wus unable to solve this
riddle Mr. Barnes kindly gave her a
"If you could remember whore yoa.
Yere at precisely ten minutes to 3," he
said, "wby, that would settle It"
Brends smiled at the great astuteness of Mr. Barnes, but she declined to
be led Into a review of her movements
tbat afternoon. Mr. Haggerty then
struck Into the conversation with tbe
remark that It was curious bow people
Could forget where they had been, and
he instanced the case of a young lady
wbo bad lost sn excellent alibi lu a
criminal affair through tho error of not
taking the police Into her confidence
at an early stage of the proceedings,
whilst tbe facts were fresh In her mind.
Brenda suggested that perhaps the
Indy did not fully trust the police,
whereupon Mr. Barnes asserted warmly that that was the greatest mistake
■jossllilo to a human being. .
"Always trust tbe police," be snld.
"Guilty or innocent It's tbe only thing
to do."
At the hospital tt became Immediately evident that Barnes and Haggerty bar' encountered a mysterious nnd
formidable obstuele. Tbey were about
to accompany Brenda Into tbo reception room, and she bad begun to fear
that they might never leave her while
she remained ln the building, but for
tome Inscrutable reason they vanished,
and Uremia's last glimpse showed
them obviously crestfallen.
She had been somewhat lightened In
spirits by the absurd comedy plnyed
by these dull wltted men. It had ended, bowever, and the renl significance
of the drama again asserted Itself.
The reception room of St. Winifred's
Is lofty and bare, and there was a chill
air ln It even on that sultry June evening. Brenda observed that the place
Inspired her two companions with a
vague terror. The maid was seized
wltb a visible trembling, and the stalwart James shifted bis heavily shod
feet upon tho floor, arousing singularly loud echoes that seemed to affect
him unpleasantly.
The attendant who had shown them
in returned after some minutes' absence with two men, one of whom
Brenda had seen in the hall as they entered. He was the typical hospital phy-
"iliss MocUinel" she cried in a weak
slclsn of the popular conception. Brenda noted only that he wore spectacles
and that bis upper lip was very thin
and rigid. In his companion Brenda
was rejoiced to recognize a young doctor of ber acquaintance. Sumner Kendall. She advanced hastily, with extended hand.
"Dr. Kendall," she exclaimed, "I had
no idea you were connected with St
Winifred's. I hnve come to see Miss
Miller. Is she conscious? What has
she said?"
Tbe physician seemed to be laboring
under considerable embarrassment He
took Brendit's hand wltb a quick, nervous movement, and he clasped It harder than tbe forms of polite society permit But hs did not meet ths young
lady's eye.
"Onr patient Is conscious," he said.
"She has an excellent chance of recovery. Indeed under ordinary circumstances there would be small cause for
alarm. To our great surprise, we find
that she does not know who Inflicted
the wound. It may be only a lapse of
memory due to shuck, but I myself fear
That she wilt never bs able to answer
the question."*
"sSlie does not know?" echoed Brenda.
"You must understand," said Kendall, "tbat the assailant stood behind
her. He, whoever it may have been, ls
supposed to have entered the room
while Miss Miller was out on the balcony. I bate bad tbe place accurately
described to me. In the corner of (lie
room near tbe eastern window there ls
quite a large closet Perhaps you noticed It"
Brenda Inclined ber head.
"The assassin may have hidden himself there," Kendall continued. "Miss
Miller remembers stepping luto the
room through that eastern wtxdow,
and she knows nothing of what hap
pened hetween that moment nnd the
time of her awakening here."
"She will live," said Brenda. "She
will remember some day."
"Sho can never remember wbat she
did not observe," replied Kendall. "It
mny be that she neither saw apt heard
the assassin. As to tbe wound, I hardly know what to say. Tbe knife entered between the lirst and second ribs
nnd passed downward very close to tho
body wall. Ordinarily It would be almost Impossible to Inflict sucb a
wound. The assassin must have been
singularly ignorant of anatomy to
strike downward at such a spot, for (lie
chances were a thousand to one that
the bony structure would protect the
vital parts. Tbe knife should bate
cleared tho first rib and hit fairly
against the second. But It happens that
Miss Miller received an Injury ou this
precise spot years ago, as a result of
which the first rib Is somewhat depressed. Thus the murderer was favored by an extraordinary chance. His
idea was, first, to escape being seen by
her, and, second, to striko at the front
of tho body while standing behind In
order to avoid the blood that must follow Ihe blow. Having struck, be undoubtedly supposed tbst be bsd reached tbe heart and only a miracle prevented. Our ambulance surgeon believed that the wall of the heart was punctured and thnt a clot of blood was stopping the wound, as hnppens once In a
million times. That Is not the case. Not
only did tbe knife miss the heart, but
It missed the arteries In a way that only divine Providence can account for.
So the lirst effusion of blood wns not
followed by tbe fatal drain that might
havo been expected. Do I make myself
"I understand enough," said Brenda.
"I know tbat she may recover, and I
thank God with all my soul."
There was a pause, during which
Kendall's embarrassment, tbat had
been less noticeable while bis mind wus

increased  fiom  20, to  580,   and    tho
though Kendall, Iu the extremity of h
embarrassment,   forgot  to   utter  the
form of presentation.
A straight and long corridor, tbe
longest, as It seemed to Brenda, that
mortal architect had ever designed, led
rearward to the part of the building in
which Miss Miller bad been sequestered. Kendall led the way, and his colleague walked behind. For the third
time that day Brenda experienced tbe
sensation of surrendering ber volition.
The hospital became a prison; she was
being marched to some deep cell be
yond the reach of rescue or the light of
day. Then, In a moment, sbe saw Dr.
Kendall open a door and step back that
she might pass buforo blm.
Brenda's first glance happened to fall
directly upon the face of the patient,
aud sbe cannot truly be said to have
seen anything else ln the room. The
bed was only an indistinct splash of
white. The bare walls, tho plainly
curtained window, the nurse In profile,
motionless as a figure on tapestry, entered Into the feeling, but not iuto the
view of the scene. She beheld only
tbat sweet and sad little face, so pretty, so maidenly and tender. And ihe
real essence of this despicable crime,
the Inconceivable Inhumanity of It,
seemed to speak straight to Brenda's
heart In that language of nature which
Is without words.
Elsie's brown eyes opened wide.
They bad been half closed, and she
bad been looking at heaven knows
what; nothing In that room surely,
nothing that ever had been anywhere
perhaps. They turned to Brenda with
utter surprise.
"Miss Maclane!" she cried in a weak
voice, but distinct as tlie tone of a little
silver bell. "You have come to see
me! How kind of you!" Then sudds'n-
ly, "Why did you do it?"
Brenda sank upou her knees beside
tbe bed aud took Elsie's band.
"It was an Impulse—a mere Impulse,"
she said; "but I am very glad I came.
I sm so sorry for you. I am a good
nurse. I bave been taught. Will you
let me stny hero witb yeu until you ure
Two tears gathered In Elsie's eyes
and glided slowly down her cheeks.
Her lip quivered like a child's.
"I shan't get well," sbe said. "I don't
want to."
And then the tears came very fast.

It is well I n.swn that the number
of letters, words, verses, etc., cor**
tumid in tho Bible ha'.e been counted, but liy whom, when or wln.ro, is
not generally known. "Treat's publication, entitles! "(Jul iositiss of tho

being of Spanish origin, and that
tlse I'rince sn' Granada, fearing
us.rption, caused the arrest of the
supposed would-be usurper, and by
order of the Spanish crown he waa
thrown into an old prison called the
place of skulls, .-ittinted in Madrid,
where he was con lined for 83 years,
wiih no other Companion than the
rats, mice and other vermin that frequented his dismal  cell.
liming his confinement he counted
the loiters, etc., s un tinned in the
Bible, and scratched the several
numbers on the stone walls with a
nail. Wheu his work was discovered
he was furnished with writing uten-
Etils and ordered to make a copy of
tlio results of his long and tedious
task, and, on its being completed,
he  linn Ily  received  his liberty.
The following is a correct copy of
iiis great work:
The Bible contains 3,566,480 letters, 778,746 words, 81,178 verses,
1,195 chapters and 66 books.

The middle verse is the eighth
verso of the 118th Psalm. The 21st
verao of the seventh chapter of Ezra contains all the letters of the alphabet, ejtcept the letter J.

The suflerer from nervous headache and dizzy spells nover knows
what minute he may fall helplessly
a victim of vertigo or paralysis, for
these symptoms tell of depleted
nerve cells and a wasting ef vigor
and vitality.
Other indications of nervous exhaustion are troubles of sight,
noises in the oars, sparks before the
eyes, stomach troubles, sleeplessness,
cold hands aud feet, restlessness, irritability, weakened memory, lack
of (Miergy ono enthusiasm, muscular
weakness, fainting; spells,' bodily
pains and aches, and tired, languid
and despondent feelings.
Nervous diseases arc most dreadful to contemplate, because of tho
frequency with which they end in
paralysis, locomotor ataxia, epilepsy
insanity. All movement of the body
oi its mendiors Is controlled tiy the
nerves, and hence it follows thut
paralysis of some form is the natural consequence of exhausted and
depleted  nerves.

The curate did not espivi.illy like

Nevertheless, this wus his superior in

at some time, and- mothers cannsst
be too caroful iii making a selection.
The so-called " soothing " preparations, invariably contain opiates and
other harmful drugs, which stupify
tha little one, and pave the way to
a constant necessity for the use of
narcotic drugs. Undoubtedly the
very best and the very safest medicine for littlo ones is Baby's Own
Tablets. They are mildly laxative
and gentle in their action, and cuVe
all stomach anil bowel troubles, rs>
lieve simple fevers, break up coKLs,
prevent croup, and allay tho irrita-
j tion accompanying the cutting of
teeth• Where these Tablets arc used,
littlo ones slsjep naturally, because
the causes of irritation and sloeii-
lcssmess aro removed in a natural
wuy. Experienced mothers all praise
this medicine. Mrs. H. H. Fox, Orange Hidge, Man., says :— " Baby's
Own Tablets are the bust medicine 1
have ever used for children of ull
ages. They arc truly a blessing to
baby unsl mother's friend."
These Tablets are guaranteed to
contain no opiate, and can be given
to a new-born babe. Sold by all

sleds mude of a small board, with
beef bones as runners. But these dropped out of sight wheu an Inventive genius built oue out of a barrel stave, fur
his Invention was extensively copied.
The barrel staves were called "Junipers'' and "skippers" and wero made of
a single barrel stave of moderate width,
to which was nailed a twelve Inch seat

The great objection to umbrellas 100
years ago wus their weight, and wben
lt is stilted as a matter of fact tbat the
very smallest umbrella then weighed
no less than three and a half pounds lt
will probably be admitted that the ob
Jecti'.n was a Justlliable oue.
Instead of the thin rainproof fabrics
which now form the covering of umbrellas nothing better was known than
leather or oilcloth. The ribs were of
wood or whalebone, and such a thing as
a steel rod was, of course, unknown.
The stick was usually of heavy oak. in
those days, too, many umbrellas had
the additional Incumbrance of feathers
over the top, on the theory of "shedding water off a duck's buck." But tbe
oilcloth uud leather umbrellas, aotwlth-
standteg the feathers, wero apt to leak.

in these days of progress and competition
n3 man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
