The Chapleau mine, on Lemon
creek, ii onee more to the front in a
legal sense, as the old creditors,' to-
gather with a few new ones, have
started action to havo a receiver appointed. John Cholditch & Co., Nelson, are the movers in the action, but
thev are supported by the* other creditors. Originally the property owed
about $90,000, out payments .since
made reduced that amount close to
110,000. Repeated promises of settlement have since been made, but not
fulfilled. Ever since the whut down
two men and a couple of horses Lave
been kept, ou the payroll, but the
wages and supply account have not
been met, s*o there will be another
$2000 added to the old debts.
Last year a new company was floated in London nnd Ptiris by Ernest
Mansfield to take over the Chapleau
ami Gamp Mansfield propel tie:;, but
it is now doubted if a real transfer of
the claims took place, the idea prevailing that a bold bluff was run to
island off the creditors. Judgments
were secured against the Chapleau
company, so it is not expected there
will he much trouble in gaining the
siesirod end nt present. H. S. Lcunie.

company, but he ha** been superceded

was thia statement: "If the strike iu

copper was at its high point, a loss,
direct and indirect, of $760,000 would
j not have resulted. If from the first
i the Le Roi hast received fair pl'ty, it

then manager of the Le Roi, was responsible for that strike, and his state-

did not pay dividends was because of
the two per cent tax. Another case of

Kato appeared next. morning with
a lu res.** apron tied over her dress,
suggestive of work in prospect: .lolin
nut iced it at once, his thoughts hnd
not lieen so entirely diverted from
its  wearer ns she supposed.
"Now Kn,te," lis* exclaimed,, "you
need not think that you will be allowed to knock yourself Dp trguin,
just, immediately' Vmi are to walk
wiih me to Qarlolgh; we shall lunch

then:  we start nt

"1   hnve    work

"It must  wait
twelve "'
Mr. f'erris looked * rather bewildered when this arrangement was explained to" him He had an Indefih-
ite idea that things were not going
rightly, 'When had Kate absented
herself from her work on two consecutive days before?
"If it is only a question of meeting Mary," he said, "I can save you
the trouble, . J have a christening at
Main's of Overton, this afternoon,
and 1 can leave word,, as; I drive
past the station, thut MaT.v is to
wait there till I come for her."
"But it is more than a question of
meeting Mary, Mr. Ferris. Kate will
stop indoors the whole day, if some
one does not make her go out.,"
"Very well, very well: let her
please herself."
Kate seemed undecided, but at
twelve o'clock, she '"ppearcd. cauip-
ped far a walk."
Life at Carleigh wus rather exciting than otherwise. There was an
element of uncertainty about it, due
to the fact' that the railway lino
was doubled just outside the station,
to permit the* train fnmi the North,'
to pass the trufn from the South.
Whichever came in first, had to retire to the siding to wait for the
nlher—it was never quite certain
which would come in lirst. Three
times .a duy. for fifteen or twenty
minutes before ihe trains were "*'-'-
pocted" the station master, and tho
porter met to discuss probabilities,
stimulated occasionally by questions
from a passenger or a passing laborer: the detaining effects of various
fairs, markets, ami holidays were
canvassed, while I.arron dilated upon the semi-burlinric days before thc
line was doubled. Barron was fully
conscious of the importance of his
position. The privilege and responsibility of receiving two trains In
the station at the same time, does
not fall to the lot of every station
master—he cherished a pharisaic
gratitude that ho was not as were
tho station masters of I'lenesslo and
Kirkton. He had his griefs. It was
a positive pain to him to see the
mail train dash disdainfully past
Oarleigh: in moments of great exultation ho imagined himself detaining
the mail' train foi; two or three minutes  on  the siding.    .
Otner subjects than tho vugarios
of railway trains, were discussed on
the station platform. Barron, as an
elder of .the church, wus an authority
on doctrinal points; and, as the first
to receive the weekly paper which .
was shared by a select few of the
village, he wus frequently applied to
for information regarding.the doings
of the outer world. The information
given, he interspersed so freely with
comments 'pf- his own, that to tho
Garlelglv-mind it r0ma.ln.2d uncertain
whether Mr. Gladstone or Barron
was responsible for the dictum that
Home Rifle wus thi; only right treatment for,the trotter disturbances and
the Irish difficulties—evils which
were directly attributable --to. Opg-
inal Sin-aggravated, by Tory obstinacy. ,  "•'•'  *  * .;       .
"Which train'do you'expert lirifl I
to-dny, Mr.. Barron?" inquired K,a,tc,,|
as she nndjier companion came-up-'
on  the "plat(o,rni.       , ..f        .    j
The station master held Tip-his
hand to command silence, assumed
an intent ^expression, hnd renin Inert'
rigid for iii. 'few moments daring'
which the porter struggled With . a
desire to clear Ijis throats. At last
Barron's . features' lelnxed,—''.Sho'*s

"Oh. t'hu'South* traiii f %0 '-shall'

The disUiucji.iseisimed short.. Mary's
gay humour infi-cted her company
ions: she 'questioned them about
their doings,. enlighTened them as to
her    own,     nnd found material    for
laughter in everything that wns snid.
lYI'ttTn they were within half a mile of
tho Manse, they were overtaken by
Mr. Ferris, who stopped driving as
ho reached them.
"Lot mo go the rest of the way
with you, Uncle," cried Mary.
"Como then, you Witch, hero ,aro
the reins. Is it only four days since
you left'us?"
She took her'seat, and leaned forward to kiss him.
"Yes," she suid slowly, "only four
days: but it seems more liko a year."
"So.I think, child; I have missed
Sho waved her hand to the others,
and 'drove away.
"Mary is like sunshine!" exclaimed
Kate involuntarily. John turned to
her at once.    .
"Ah," you feel that too, Knte. I
cannot Imagine how you anil Mr.
Ferris get on when she is awuy for
any length of time."
"We survive "
"Yes, of course: but what a difference It must, mnko,"
"People cannot always have sunshine," said Kate shortly.
"Knte, 1 know what you must, be
thinking of. I must seem very Selfish . to you: but remember thai, l
have had to do without her for
seven years, anil you have hail her
all that timo.    It  is my turn now."
Kato became suddenly breathless:
an aching chill stole over her, she
seemed to herself to bo drifting olT
into distance, and yet she was distinctly conscious of the roughness of
the ground beneath her feet. She
heard a vofco, that seemed to come
from a long way olf, say, "You
know what I want, Kate; wish me
well," and she heard another voice,
surely not her own, respond, "I huve
always wished your happiness with
all my heart."
Tho rest of the walk was a blank.
After tea, it was not suggested
that open air exercise would be advisable for Kate.. John and Mnry
found their way outside as usual,
and turned toward tho rocks.
."Not a word, John, until we are
there, and then I am going to speak
first," cried Mary. "Bo let us walk
as fast as ever 'we can."
"Certainly," he said, bewildered by
her haste.
The.v reached the rocks, and the exceeding • beauty of thc scene spread
before, them, held theni silent fsir a
littlo.    . |   .
"It - la just aa I "hoped it would,
be," sighed Mary, with tightly clasped hands, "such wonderful color*
ana the- sea looking so happy, and
Arran quite clear Why do you look
at s\iran like that, John? Boos it
•remind yoii of something?" "*
"lt makes me think of Grand Canary-on-an infinitely small scale,'' he
answered slowly, "and that reminds
me'of—"   .   .
"Of what?"
"Oh, no matter: something I had
almost forgotten. We did not come
here to speak of that."
"Of Grand ("unary? no, Indeed I
John, T hnve been so impatient for
the evening to come."
"mi      have        I.       Mury." He
helsl out his hands to her,
anil she put her own within them,
speaking eagerly:
"I made up my mind that you
should bo the first to know. I would
Bot tell any one, not even Kate, before you. You are so dear, and good,
and kind to me; you will be so glad
when you h'*ar what I huve to tell.
It only happened yesterday. I am
gong to bo married,  John."
His lingers closed over hers with a
tight grip, so that sho winced with
pain.    •
"1 don't understand you. Say that
"Ah, I don't wonder you cannot
understand,' I can hardly believe it
myself. To thin1: of any one caring
like that, for me! But it is quite
true; he does care for me, though I
am not. worth it, and oh! — I—am
— so — happy."
"How   long  has   this   been     going
on?" Tin* sound of his .voice quite
startled her.
"Ui you mean, how long    have    I
known him? A year, I think; but'   I
have not. seen him  ofls'n until lately.
.1 'never   knew  he  cared   for   me     till

"Bo you love hini, Mary?".
"More than I can tell you, John."
She breathed out the words as if
Oley were almost loo sacred for any
one to hear.
. Ho lot go her' hands nnd turned
away frOm' her abruptly. Mary looked, after, film1 in atiiii/eiiiiint; he hud
not evon Snid'that lie Was'pleased
BUS felt sudsls'iily .very, sore at-heart.
Tfuirft gathered.*ni,h's«' eyes mil stole
down her face; she could not. see the
colors In the sky uny lunger, the
waves mocks*d her with their laughter ,— it was all so different from
what she-hod e\iioo*t***d. She. crouched
down oo the rocks, and Jooked at
tho bunds that still ached with the
rough treatment' they had rorelvcd;
the stght of thc dark finger marks on
them seemed, somehow, to accentu-
ato her disappointment. In spite ot
herself, she sobbed aloud. John came
back to her. instantly.
- "Don't cry, Mary. Dear, I can't
bear to seo you cry1. What Is the
matter?" '
*'6h, T don't know. ' I thought you
would bo pleased, but I sever heard
you speak so-harshly before, and you
have hurt my hands."
He took them In his own, and covered them wilh 'kisses.     ...   •
"Thi're! does that proyc to you
that I did not mean to hurt them?
Harsh wtbiiIs! have I qsed harsh
words? and lo you! What would you
liko me to, say, dear? Tell me, nnd
I will sny it."
' "I thought you would have" snid'
how glad y6u*nre that I am happy."
• "I—am,glad that you are happy.''
Khtf smiled fainrly, already the-
world seemed brighter.
"Thank .vou,- John, I.'knew you

dreadfully hard to say'nothing about

you know, when! saw you together
this afternoon, I thought that perhaps,N^ou and — and  Kate—"
"hush, Mary I" Again his voice
startled 'her. "I want you to' go
back   to  tho  Manse,   dear;     without
waiting tor me, you understand?
And tell them — what you have told
me. Will you? before 1 come
"Of courso I will."
Sho rose at once, struck her foot
against a stoue, nnd almost fell, Instantly ho had lifted her, and carried her to tho road. There he
stood, holding her hands In his, and
speaking rapidly.
"I am to blame. I had no right
to use harsh words, and blind your
eyes with tears so that you could
not see tho way. And the rocks are
too rough for your feet; you should
have none but smooth places to walk
on, if I—I Mary, don't you understand? I want your happiness only,
always; It Is dearer to me than anything; I would give my lifo to secure It. Mary, can't you understand?"
"Oh. yes, indeed, John; you have
mndo mo very happy again, I knew
you would bo glad about it; it is
very good of you  to caro so much."
"Oo, Mnry, quickly."
Sho went, nnd he followed her with
his eyes.   Of courso sho had not understood;  ho hated  himself,     because
he wished that she hnd.
Long before Mary's return to the
Manse, Kate had .gono to her room.
A headache, Which existed to a
small extent and was presently to
be intensified, wus her excuse for retiring early. Truth to tell, she
shrank from Mary's confidences; to
weep with the mournful seemed far
easier ln tho present circumstances
than to rejoico with the Joyful. She
paced up and down her room, starting at every sound, miserable with
apprehension when she hoard footsteps in her neighborhood. An hour
passed; and she was beginning to
reckon upon being undisturbed that
night, when her door was gently
pushed open, and a low voice called,
"Come In, Mary."
"I was afraid you might be asleep,
dear. I am so sorry about your poor
head, is it very bad?"
"It has been worse."
"Will it hurt you if I come in and
talk a little?"
Mary Stole, across the room to the
window where her cousin stood, nnd
lenns'd her head against Kate's shoulder.
'I wish you would kiss me,'' she
Kato stooped down to give the required caress.
"Whut does that prelude, Mary?"
"Oh, you don't often kiss me, you
know, ami to-night I want to feel
that you love me. Such a wonderful
thing has happened!"
"I suppose I know what it is."
"You can't, I am sure; you would
never guess it. It is thc most unlikely thing you can think of. to huve
happened to mo! If he hnd fallen In
lovo with you, now, I should not
havo been at all surprised; you are
so clever and sensible."
"So I am to understand that some
ono bus  I'allon  in  love  with  ymi."
"Yes. dear," Mary raisesl her head
nnd whispered in Kate's ear — "I
am engaged to, bo married!"
Kale kissed her again.
"I hope you will be very happy,
Mary. You will have a good husband."
"Indeed I shall, far better than I
deserve! And if you knew him as
'well as I do, you would be as astonished ns I am. that ho cares for
me; but you will see him to-morrow.
I havo told him a great deal,' about
you, and he wants to know' you
better. Ho could not quite remember what you are like, but then he
has only seen vou twice."
"Only seen me twice!"
"I ms-ant you to be the second to
hear about it," pursued Mary eagerly; "don't bo vexed with me because
I told I'ncle before you Y'ou seo, I
found him in the purlor ufter I came

" 'Telling John!' " Knte repeated

British family. And William Henry
makes this statement concerning

Mark Twain ma  a  Bowler.
When Mark Twain was an editor ln
Hartford he was considered a formidable opponent nt skittles. Ills favorite
resort wns a bowling alley In a cellar
on State street, not far from the steamboat dock. While the celebrated humorist was under Major Pond's management he was billed as one of the
features for nu evening's entertainment
at the Young Men's Christian association hall ut Newark. There was ,-a
bowling alley Immediately underneath
the lecture room. As .Mark Twain was
on his wsy upstairs with thc major he
caught n glimpse of It.
"What's going on iu there-bowling?"
"Yes," replied the major, who knew
his wonkness, "but never mind thut
now.   You're due on the platform."
"Run In somebody else for ten or fifteen miuutes," said Mark Twain. "I

And be did.

thermometer went down to 20 degrees

"Below which?" asked his puzzled
"Below (ulro, you blubberhead! You

be pretty cold, so they gay so many

Marked by Palo Faces, Heart Palpitation
Loss of Appetite and Oenaral Lassltnda
—How to Overoome Thla Condition.
After babyhood, the most perilous
time in a young girl's life is when
she is just entering womanhood. It
is then that she is subject to head-
nihos, dizziness, heart palpitation,
feeble appetite, and. bloodless cheeks
and lips. This condition muy easily
develop into consumption, anil to
prevent this—tn keep the young girl
in good health nnd strength, mothers
should insist upon their taking a
blood making tonic, such us lir.
Williiuns' I'ink l'ills. Mrs. Henry
Mclntyre, l'ort Dalliousie, Ont,,
gives sound advice to other mothers
In cases ol this kind. She say s :—
"About, three years, ago the health of
my daughter, Bertha, began to fall,
she grew weak and seemed1 unable to
stand the Iras.i exertion, Sh'o suffered fropi distressing headaches und
fainting fits; her   appetite . left   her
and   she   lust   llesh.       I     spent     miiili
money on medicines, but they did not
help her. Then 1 took her to a doctor, and although bis treatment was
persisted In for a lung time, she
seemed to be growing worse, and   l
began to fear she was going Into
Consumption.    Then   I   took   her   to   a
specialist,   but   his   treatment    wns
likewise   unsuccessful.      Finally    upon
the advice of u lady friend, a doctor
practising in Chicago, Bertha began
using Dr. Williiuns' I'ink l'ills. and
before long there wns a decided Improvement in her condition, and by
lhe time she had taken nine boxes
she was once more enjoying the best
of health and had gained fifteen
pounds' in weight. I would strongly
advise all similar sufferers to give
Dr. Williams' I'ink Pills a fnir trial,
as her cose scorned ns hops-less as
could be."
All weak nnd ailing gills und women, sufferers from backache, headaches, indisposition to work or exercise, who show by their pule and sallow cheeks thnt the.v are in -ill health
will find prompt relief, bright eyes,
rosy cheeks anil active health in a
fnir use of Dr. Williams' I'ink Pills.
Voir can obtain these pills from any
medicine dealer or by mail, postpaid,
at 50c. n box or six boxes for 12.50

Miss AgneSS Laut, author of "Lords

Company in Prank Leslie's I'opulur

arrives to trade at a Hudson's Bay
post, furs in the pack must'be sort-,
ed, silver fox worth five hundred dollars separated from cross fox and
blue and white worth from ten dollars down, according to quality, and
from common red! fox, .worth less.
Twenty years ago it was no unusual
thing for tho Hudson's Bay Company
fsi send • to England yearly 10,000
cross fox skin!-, 7,000 blue, 100.000
red. half a dozen silver. Few wolf
skins ure in the trapper's pack, unless particularly line specimens of
(jrown arctic and white arctic,
bought as a curiosity, and not for
value ns skins. Against the wolf
the trapper wages war as against .a
poet that destroys other game, and
not for'its skin.. Next* to- muskrat,
