The first meeting of the city council iu three weeks was hold on Monday evening, Aid. Worden being the
only absentee.
Communications read: From city
clurk of New WeKtniinster, inviting
the council to attoad.t&o annual fnir
in that city.   Filed.
Aid. Teeter called attention to the
fact that two meml-ors of the local
hospital board were present aad de*
--ir«*il to make a stat iment,
J. lv Ejkinner, oaa of tho board,
■•tilted he wished to lay their position
before the council, so as to obtain assistance. Owing to tho quiet times,
the hospital was rather a burden on
the hands of the unioa, but they did
uot wish to see it closed. At present
the expenses of running it were much
greater than the receipts. The hospital hud been running for two years
ami a half, and. although paying for
a while, it wa.s now j^oitif^ behind, and
it w«s more than the union could
stand, Thoy would like a Ixmus from
the city to assist the ho -pital and .-jeep
it running. A financial btntenieut
would lis* furnished the council if they
so desired,
1). B. O'Neail. the other delegate,
gave a few figures, showing that tho
receipts of ths-. hospital at present
wero small, not running over $125 per
month, while the expenses approximated $250per month. When eatab*

Rachel was bolstered up in a sitting position, anil she looked better
limn she li.aii iu>' Nl for many days,
.She took each ofthe servants by tho
hand, and pressed It warmly- pressed
it with warm emotion, though her
own hand wns strangely rokl.
"My children," sho said, "I feel
belter, and it Is your kindness that
has made ine so peaceful and happy.
1 am going to sleep; and 1 wiuitoil to
see you before I Blept The thought
was with me, and I might forgot it
if I let it be lo another time. 1
wanted to bless yon, uml tell you
how much i love you. I wanted to
tell you all how happy 1 am in the
faith that this poor, lifo is but thc
beginning of au eternal life. Onr
home is in the bettor world beyond
the vale, where Hod Ihe Father is.
ssnd where the Blessed Saviour reigns
foroverniote. If I should go before
you, I will prepare the way. do,I lie
merciful  to ynu ever!"
Sobbing lii-a' thlldren Indeed, the
faithful servants turned frnm thc
loom; and whin they had gone, Ita-
i hei put forth her hand to t'hris
tine.
"Lower my pillows, darling."
Gs?ntly and soothingly the loving
girl sibeyed.
"Now rest by iny side, Christine.
Let me take your band. I am going
to sleep."
, Presently she drew her hand away
und reached upward, as though she
would grasp something in tho spa's'
above her whish to Christine seemed
empty. A moment so, and then she
gave her hand bu.uk to the watcher.
A little while, and ft change came
over the aged fni'B. The eyes, looking upward, grew pretei naturally
bright, and the features were bathed
as in a light supernal. Her lips moved, and she cried out, in ecstatic
tones:
"Victor—my husband I Oh, after
all these years!"
And thus speaking, her eyes closed,
and she sunk to her last rest. Christine marked the changsj—that awful
change which loaves the loved one's
face a blank—the i hange that marks
the mysterious transit between the
two worlds!
At first Christine was stunned by
the blow. From out the dread space
of ths Unseen, it scorned as though
a still greater Calamity was to fall
upon her. At the moment when she
knew that her best friend was gone
from her, she Wished thffc she, too,
might lie down In the "ime mystic
sleep. The first impulse of hi'i' startled imagination was that in losing
her foster-mother she hud lost the
only shield that stood between herself and utter despair. And this was
not a sudden phantasy. Sh'.' had
dreamed often of such a thing—had
dreamed, both sleeping und wakinc,
that in the dint possibilities of lifo
were dread ovils which the preaence
of Rachel St. Clair could alone ward
off. But, by and by, she roused herself to a sense of the necessities of the present situation, and having reverently
crossed tin- hands of the sles'per upon ths pulseless bosom, and Imprinted a kiss upon the marble brow,
she went forth to tell the servants
what had happened,
CHAPTER X.
On the self-sumo morning of the
events Inst recorded, Caspar Hugo
reached the otlice on Court street at
an early hour, and was ere long ioin-
i-d  by   Mr.   Halford.
"You uro eiirly this morning, sir,"
remarked the clerk, ns his employer
took his sent.
"Yes.'' replied the attorney. "I
have business on my hands that
mnkes me anxious, I am not satis-
lied touching tin' title of tlie old
Hut levy march estate. As you aro
aware, we Snd by the records that
the original assignor reserved a par-
tin 1 right to the property until cer-
tnin conditions luul been fulfilled. I
have no stoiibt thut those conslltions
wore fulfilled long ago, and, ln all
possibility, the assignor gave u re-
b'use of his claim: but s.iid release
Is nowhere on record, l huvo no
gre.it fe.ir of trouble, but still these
tiii lies frrt nie. I like to see my
work intact. 1 don't like to find a
link missing in my chain."
'In this case," suggested Caspar,
who understood the point at issue,
T think the chain Is simply a link
siiort. I doubt if thc missing link
is needed for strength, though for
i i" fin tnc'-s of proportions It might
bo well to have it in."
"1 think," snid Halford, "that, for
myself, the absence of the release
from the record would not prevent
mo from accepting a deed from the
present proprietor. However, I can
explain tho mutter to my client, and

Is another thing that has kept me
anxious. In fact, it has kept me
awake half the night."
The clerk looked up, but ventured
no Spoken question.
"I allude," pursued the old man,
after a pause, "to Madame Rachel
St. Clnlr. I must see her again
while her mind Is clear."
"Anything particular?" queried
Hugo.
"Yes. She spoke, not long since,
of transferring some real estate ln
New Orleans. I might like to obtain her wishes in thnt respect for
the guldanco of Miss Christine.
"Touching thnt mntter." ventured
Caspar with difference, "1 think Miss
Christine hnd I.ei ter relysolely upon
viinr Judgment, If her appearance
does not belle her, she Will lisok to
you  'or counsel nnil guidance

turiipal the old lawjer, evidently
1.leased with tlie implied flutter
"Anil yet, I wouM like to hear from
tho lml.v. She wus vei'j low yesterday. She musl not sink without
my seeing her."
At this juncture the door of tii'
11!111-o was opened, and n bpy looVi*-1

The boy departed, nnd Cnspur re
sinned his seat, remarking, ns he did
"I nm free to iiilmit that 1 do not
care for these Italian operas. The
music is entirely overshadowed by
tho utter chaos ssf song."
"l never heard on • In my life,"
said Halford.
"1 have beon inflicted several
times," smiled Caspar, lu response :
"but I don't choose to be inflicted
to-night. A friend sends me word
that si ticket is ut my disposal."
"No business of mine need interfere," suid tlie attorney.
"Tlinnk you, sir; but I am nt present deep in Sallust and Cicero, preparatory to taking up Wheaton; and
1 um deeply interested."
"You are right, Caspar. I am
pleased to see you thus sensible. He
who would become a master ot law
must commence at the beginning,
Let nie also recommend to you Demosthenes and Euripides. I think
Demosthenes' oration on the 'Crown,'
the grandest effort of oratory ox-
tont.    I know it will please you."
"Much better thnn the opera, I am
sure," returned Caspar.
And ns he spoke he tore thc note
which the boy hnd brought into very
small pieces, and rolled them up In
his bund.
And now, could those bits of paper
have beon re-arranged sn u to present the sumo surface whish had lirst
appeared to the eyes of Caspar Hugo, they wouisl give us the following:
"Thursday, 8 o'clock a.m.
"I huve just Been tbe doctor ns he

le . He suys the woman is dying.
All."
Caspar rolled the bits of pnper ln-
tai u pellet, and threw the pellet into tho waste-basket.
"So," suisl he, "we dispose ofthe
opera. And now, sir, suppose 1 take
a run out to 1.oxbury, and lind out
how our lady is. I wouisl like much
to cull upon n fri"nd in that nisi fh

Ilnlfnrd's answer was prompt:
"I wish you would do so, Caspar.

Middlesex registry and look up the

Caspar promised that he would
mnke careful inquiry; and without
further delay he loft the office, and
Immediately afterward Mr. Halford
proceeded to Bowdoin Square, and
took a cur for Cambridge,
it was near leu o'clock when ('as
par lingo reached the Drookside
and, at a phiAC previously appointed,
lie met his father.
"f received your nolo." he said,
"nnd hnvo now come for fun her Information. "
'And you have come just In time.
or l am greatly mistaken," returned
Alexander. "I huvo just observed a
commotion at iho cottage. You had

•'You aro right," snid Caspar.
"Wait you here till I come buck."
The son Wns game but a short time,
nnd when he returned, he was in u
spiivcr of excitement.
"She is dead!"
"Are j ou sure?"
"Yes. I found out without being
seen.''
"Then," said Alexander, thoughtfully, "thnt means work."
"Wo have no llino to lose. If 1
will look to the lawyer, will you
look to the two witnesses?"
Tlio elder mnn paused and reflected.
"It must not only be done quietly," he at length said, "hut no
trace ot thc work must bo left. The.v
must be missing, and no sign aaf
their fate be miiile manifest." •
"Can you not manage it?"
"I must find help."
"("nn you find men who muy be
trusted?"
"I cun find ready men: nnd since,
when   Iho work   is done,  thoy  will  be
equally implicated with myself,    we
need nol  four their blabbing."
"Then you will take them upon
your bunds?"
"Yes."
Caspar Hugo belloved that when
his father undertook a work to the
accomplishment of which hu- own wil
und daring wire iilone ncc iBsary, the
same might be considered ns saf el]
provided for, and Inning arranged
for a future meeting, the two separated) both to return to the city,
ti: ingh by different routes.
Caspar stopped at a fruit stall on
Washington strict, nnd purchased a
do,en line peaches, which he tmik
away In a paper bng, Thonce he
want directly to his chambers in the
out-of-the-way alley, where he pro
ceeded to ft* his fruil (or tho purpose it  wus designed to accompli n
Cnspur Hugo hud not suffered himself to roach the present emergency
without      preparation.        Within      u
drawer of a brass-bound casket, lay a
tiny pasteboard box. Within this
box wns u folslcil paper, With in this
paper was a grayish powder, which
hud beon plnced thoro a month before. Caspar knew, when he held thn
seemingly insignificant .parcel in bis
hand, thut he hold an agent
swift and terrible-—a power beyond
the reach of human skill to combat.
Having selected two of his peaches,
lio prococded, with a small bit of
wire, to puncture them deeply, and
then to Inject minute quantities of
tho powder. Having done this, he
marked the fruit thus manipulated,
and put it buck into the bag, after
which ho descended from his chambers, and sot forth on his return to
tho office.
lt was almost ono o'clock when
Caspar struck into Court street from
Washington, having come up through
Dock Square; ami ns ho did so, he
suw Mr. Halford coming in from the
opposite direction. Tliis he regarded
ns particularly fortunate. He waited
until his employer had gone up into
tho office, und immediately after he
followed.
"Ah! You have returned." The
clerk spoke cheerily, and removed his
hot beforo ho snt   down.
"Yes,  yes.     I  hnd  no  troublo      at
Cambridge.     Huvo you  heard     from
Mvdniiin Rachel?"
1 nave been out tbere, sir. anil am
happy to suy that she is imi i   . ing."
"Improving?"
"She is reviving from hor recent
prostration, and tho doctor informs
me that she is likely to live for
somo time."
"I am glad of that—very glad.
There are a few items of her business in tho final arrangement of
which it were well thut she shoulil
exorciso super*. Ion, You cun copy
the will this afternoon, and this
evening, or to-morrow morning, 1
will take the original draft buck to
her."
Caspar nodded and then opened
the paper bag and took out a
peach. He knew that the old luwyer wus fond of peaches, so be selected two of the fuirest-looking nnd offered them, saying, ns he did so:
"They are thc finest i»cnclics I have
seen this yeur. They will revive you
after your walk. Upon my soul, 1
think I could live upon such fruit. I
sometimes think thnt the peach must
hnve been the ambrosia of Olympus."
"A pleasant fancy, certainly," nodded the attorney, us he took tho
proffered fruit. "Dick Swiveller wns
not a wild conception. Duly u few-
evenings since, I beard one of our
staid obi judges of the Superioi

"In these free-stones I have noticed that the flavor of the seed i*»

"Nor do I," s.iid Halford, as he
bit tho second peacg, und when he
hud finished It, Cnspar offered him

"I think," suid thc clerk, putting
aside tlia' paper bag, "that I will run

The attorney nodded assent, and
Caspar Went out, carefully chasing

They found the lawyer still upon
tho Hour, und only slight spasms of
the principal muscles marked the
presence of vitality. Caspar r<>i<i
his story hurriedly, but \cry clearly;
Mr. Halford hud been out to Cambridge, and had only (returned a short
timo before.
"Nol moro ihnii twenty minutes

gosled  Caspar.
The oflicer assented to this,

companled him to the lawyer's residence,
When they took their burden   Into
thc  house,   they  bore  nn   inert     nisi
lifeless form.  A physician was called,
but he could do nothing.
In this connection we would remark further, lhat Mr. Ilalfaird hail
on several occasions during the post
yonr been attacked by vertigo, for
which he hnd called medical aid. On
the present occasion, the physician,
after listening to tho Story whish
tho Clark had to tell, decided that

It was to him a plain rnse lie did
not deem lt even necessary tai make
any pnriicular local examination.

sure thoro was life apparent when
they took him fr <>tii the cnb. The
policeman could not dispute It; and,
in   thu  end,   all   unconscious   of  evil.
the physician gave a certificate     ol
tlie case as ho understood it.
Leaving tlie family tsi cun' for the
lifeless body, Caspar Hugo returned
to tho ollice, where his first movement was to secure the will of Rachel St. Clair. This he did quickly,
and plnced the document In llis
breast-pocket. Then he re-lsicked the
snfe nnd wont to n neighboring office whore ho relntod whut had occurred, and asked that ho might have
nssistiiiH'O In curing for Iho business.
"Of course." Said he, "n proper
commission will i'o appointed to
tako charge of his affairs; but us ho
hud much important niottor on hand,
I do not caro to nssume the entire
responsibility of guarding it."
A lawyer who had boon long n
friend and companion of thc deceased
went in with the distressed clerk, und
promised to remain, nnd render such
assistance us might bo needed, Until
matters could be properly arranged,
When evening had come, Caspar
went to bis lodgings and remained
there until ten o'clock. Then lie
went out nnd tried a game of billiards, but his hnnd was not stonily
and he gave it up. Ho then sought
a gambling-room, whero he drunk
two or three glnsses of whiskey, and
made petty ventures at a faro-bank,
Uo played carefully, from instinct,
and as there were several drunken,
reckless players at the board, whom
the dealer had marked as his es.icc-
litl victims, he was allowed to win
At eleven o'clock he returned to his
chambers, where he sat up until midnight, at which time lie swallowed
more whiskey, and then threw himself upon a lounge, where be soon
fell into a doze.
ll was pust throe o'clock in the
morning when C'aspur wus aroused
by tho coming of his father, whose
entrance into the house und ascent, of
tho stairs hasd been noiseless. Alexander was worn and WOHry, and he
looked dragged and hollow-eyed. He
drunk freely from tho whiskey-bottle,
and then sat down and iit a pipe.
"What havo you done?" asked Caspar, in a whisper.
"What have you done?" was Alexander's response.
"Adam Halford is dead, and the
will is in my possession."
•'Good! And now allow nie to
sny that the two men whose names
aro upon that instrument as witnesses are also dead!"
"How did you do it?" usked the
son, with eager interest. "Are your
tracks covered?"
"Arc yours covered?"
"Yes, entirely. A respectable physician gi'.es testimony that my man
died of apoplexy."
"And no physician uniler the sun
will ever bo called upon to suy of
what my man died," saisl the father,
with a slap of the hand upon his
knee. "I'll tell you how it was
done; I hired two men to help ine —
men who nro ussiil to the business,
und whoso implication is a saving
clause. Wo wont to the Drookside
lato in the evening, and I contrived
to call Sanders und Davis out into
the grove. As I engaged thoir attention, my two pals slipped up nnd
gave them a puir of settlers upon the
heud from behind. Wo strangled
thorn where they were, and then took
th< ir bodies in a covered wagon, and
drove over to the seashore. There
wo secured our horse in a safe hiding-
place, and took a boat which we
had prepared beforehand, and rowed
out into the channel, where two bits
of strong rope, nt one end of which
was a densl man and nt the other an
iron anchor, were thrown overboard
What do yau think of It?"
"You weren't. soon?"
"I can swear we were not."
"Then wo hnve only to dost rov this
will, nnd our work is done."
Tlio will wns produced and'opened;
and when Alexander Hugo had mado
himself sure of Its identity, ho stnnd
buck and saw Caspar commit it to
the flnmo of tho candle. It was consumed utterly, und tho ashes were
swept up and thrown into the grate,
after which, father and son turned
onco more to the whiskey-bottle.
CHAPTER XI.
On the morning following the events last recorded, Christine, when
she went to the chamber where the
mortal remains of her foster-mother
lay, found Lora asleep in her chair,
The woman had wom herseli asleep
with weeping, L'| on raising iho curtains of the bed, she found old Tom
kneeling there, with Ins head half-
buried in the clothing of the couch.
.She loui-hed him and spoke his name,
but he did not answer. She looked
more closely, and presently moved
back wilh reverent awe. The faithful
old servant had only been living that
ho might bear bis mistress company.
He had accompanied her through
life, und now he had gone t0 JOin
her beyond tbe vale. I hr.istine could
not pity him. Kather she felt that
tho refuge was a blessed one.
Hagar, when this double stroke fell
upon hor, sunk beneath it. Shu survived to see the bodies of her belov.
ed mistress and old Turn borne away
toward the place of burial, ftnd then
she book to her bed, and ere long
she slept with them.
Paul Waybrook was at home, having graduated with honor at his college, and his presence served greatly
to sustain and cheer Christine, '1 hey
had heard of tho deuth of Mr. llai-
ford, but not until after tho funeral
did they tako any slips toward look-
ing into the condition of tho business I
which Madame Itachel hud Intrusted
to his care. Mr. Waybrook, senior, '
considering that ho had an Interest
In the matter, called at tho office on
Court streot, Where he found Caspar
Hugo with a gentleman who hud boen
appointed us custodian for tho time.
Mr. Waybrook Stated that, ns a
friend und neighbor of Dai hei St.
Clair, and in behalf of those who
were interested, he hud called for information concerning such affulisron-
nSCted with the Drookside estate
nnd its mistress as might have been
lo Iged In Mr.  Halford*. hands.
"Really, sir," wus Hugo's reply to
his general query, delivered with obsequious frankness, "i should bo
happy to inform you upon all Iho
particulars Involved in tho caso; but
the budga-t, bus not yet hi-en opined."
"Do you know whom Madaino St.
Clair hud selected us her executor?''
the
tun
Ku-
"I do not,  sir."
•Vou know that sho had designated one?" !
"She may have done so, sir. 1 am
not Informed, however."
"Dut' she ninth- a Will?':' I
"if she   did, it   will piobably    be
found    with other    papers    of     hers '
which Mr. Halford hnd in keeping."   ;
"You   wero   Hnlford's    ooniiilen Ial
Clerk,   What was  the object   of your j
Visit   with    your     master     to     the
Droot'side cottage shortly  before Madame Raohel's deuth'.'" :
Not a quiver betrayed  the internal
emotion caused by  this  direct    ones-I
tion; and even the emotion Itself was |
brief.    Hugo hnd    set    himself    with
firm resolve to    sustaining the   position ho hnd assumed.
"You will excuse me," he answered, with a low bow. "You mid
truly whon you said thut. I was n
confidential clerk. As such, 1 mny
not break our rule of eireuiusi section."
"Dut," persisted Vnylin <i\. "* o.i
can tell mo if you know ati.\ thin •; of
a will."
"I may tell you,  sir.   thai   on
occasion to    which    you    lei'er.
wills were destroyed by  Madams
•shot's order, and in her piosonce."
"Destroyed?"
"Yes, sir."
"Two of thom?"
"Two."
"Were ths'V old wills?"
"One sit i hem was us old us I am,
and the oilier wus far from being
new."
"Do you know anything ol a new
will?"
"Nothing."
Mr. Waybrook did not choose to
hold any further con\ersaiion with
the clerk. He went out and called on
a legal friend, who went witb hiin
to the probate ollice. The few spios-
tions propounded by tlio registrar,
who chanced to be the officer in attendance, seut cold chills through
the frame of the honorable gentleman.
"Do I understand," said the registrar, after Waybrook had stats-sl ihe
case, "that Madame *St. Clair has
left no representative of her own
blood—no kin of any degree?"
"1 don't suppose," answered tlie
merchant, hesitatingly, "thut this
adopted cjiild could be called a ro-
lntDe?"
"I am very confident," answered
the officer, "thnt there bus In.-n no
legal adoption. Such un adoption
would have been entered at this office, and it could not have been done
without my knowledge. I am not
cognizant of any suih formality."
"Dut," suggested Waybrook, "iho
girl In question has li\ed wiih Ka-
ihel St. Clair, und bus borne her
name, anil his been helsl as a child
of her own from Infancy."
"But," put in the refflstrar, with
cruel directness, "iho child was a
foundling and of no kin?"*
Mr. Waybrook could only nod in
response.
"In which case," pursued the officer, "the girl's claim would in* good
for nothing in law, though a humane
court, with sufficient evidence to warrant it, might aid her mateiiolly.
Our probate judge i.s a man of largo
heart, sir, and will slo what is just
and right. But, iny dear sir, wo d I
it not lie well to make a thorough
examination of mudamo's papers before you take any other steps?"
'"lhat is what I would like to do
sir; but thc papers- in fa't. lhe
whole business of the lady—were in
the hands of Mr. Halford. who is also docaased; and there seems to be
difficulty in getting at his private
affairs without   an official  Warrant.."
"If no responsible heiis have appeared there must at hast be creditors."
"None that I know of. Madame
Itachel ejontra.' ti*d no di'hts."
"That can luiidly be," said thc
registrar       dubiously. "At      all
events," he added, with decision, "I
have never vet met with a case where
a person had Bhulllotl off this mortal
coil, entirely frs-c front debt There
are servants, doctors, undertakers—"
"Ah!" interrupted Waybrook, raising his hand, "1 hud forgotten Of
course, Dr, Arkwright must be a
creditor, or, at all events, he cun
appear as one."
"I should suppose so, If he was the
attapnding physician?"
"He was."
"Then, my dear sir, the busim-ss is
simple, lot Doctor Arkwright applv
for administration upon the estate,
nnd the court will grant letters.
Very likely the public administrator
will take the matter in hand."
With this information. Air. Waybrook left the offii's', und sought Dr.
William Arkwright, who had bean for
years madtvune's physician. Ths doe-
tor, when he had been mnde to un-
derstnnd tho situnt ion of affairs, promised lhat he would attend to ('ho
business at once, and on that very
day ho made the necessary application at tho Court of Probata; and,
ufter due examination, Hie public administrator was directed to Investigate.
Thus, a Competent authority appeared at thc office of the deceased
attorney, and demunded possession
of ail documents nnd papers pertaining to tlio estate of the lato Da' hoi
St. Clair. Caspar Hugo was In his
most affable mood, and gave himself
wholly nnd s heel fully to the work required at his hands. Ho brought
forth from the safe the drnwer which
contained the documents in question.
Some wero of parchment and some of
paper; some were comparatively new,
some older and some very old. Thero
were titlo-deeds of real estate; certificates of stocks, bonds und notos
nnd mortgages, and various other
matters, all valuable, and all clearly
classed available. The Honorable
Nathan Waybrook was hims'-lf surprised, and the a'lministiat.ir was inclined to doubt the evident'* of tho
documentary mass.
"1 had no idea." said Dr. Arkwright, "that sho held such possession. What is your estimate, young
man?"
Caspar, to whom tho question was
put, roflectod a moment, and then
replied:
"With her property here and hor
property In New Orleans, Its Is safe
to say that it will roach two millions."
Mr. Waybrook gasped for breath.
"There must be a will," hs said.
"It ls nsit   among   tiu.

The title does uot descend from fu-

people well he Is usually re-elected
without opposition. Some of the old
kings in the Oreek Nation have been at

yenrs or more. Nero Drew has been a
king for thirty-six years.
The Creek Nation is divlden into twenty-five towns, which Is about the same

has 'i king, whose duty lt ls to look after the Indians of his town. He has no
power to spa(iid their money or to command theni to do anything. His powers lire somewhat paternal. He looks
after the sick and sees that they have
medical attention; he cares for the poor
nnd decrepit. When any of his subjects
get into trouble he gives them fatherly
advice and frequently appeals to the
federal authorities to show them mercy, ne advises with his subjects on all
matters pertaining to their Interests.
In truth, he Is their worldly adviser;
sometimes he is their spiritual adviser
also, for occasionally the Indians elect
a preacher as king.
Indian kings are not very well coni-
pensateil. They get no salary. It Is a
labor of love with tliem. Tbe only possible show the.v have of getting any
money out of the oflleo is through bood-
Hng at elections. In this respect the Indians nro not behind the times. They
bosiille the same ns other people. Elections sometimes come high to thc candidates. Town kings are usually quite
Influential among the people of their
kingdom, nnd thoy command a fairly
good price for their influence at elections. Most of them are full blood Indians. Some, however, are mixed bloods.

The Iloasl Runner at Work.
George Watts, Sum Kline, Peter
Butts and Charley Connus of Bisbee
were out prospecting on the Tombstone
roud ln the neighborhood of the Old
Sandy Bob ranch, and while in the
course of hunting for monuments their
attention was attracted to the actions
of a road runner thut seemed to be very
much excited, Jumping up and down in
the air. When drawing nearer they
discovered a large rattler colled up.
The bird would drop quickly upon the
rattler and prick him with a piece of
cactus in its feet and then drop the
same near the rattler. This was kept
up over an hour until the bird eoniplet-
ed a circle of cactus around the snake.
It then systematically pecked the snake
on the head until the rattler was dead.

PAINS IN THE BACK
HIPS AND SPINE.
Great Suffering and Lota of Weight-Doctors .Could Not Help
Him--A Splendid Tribute to
DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY LIVER-PILLS.
When you read such letters as the
following from well-known and highly respected people in all parts of
the country you need no longer wonder why tho calo of Dr. Chase's Kidney Diver Pills is so far in advance
of any similar remedy. When the
people find out that the virtue oi* this
■front medicine thoy tell tbeir neighbors about it, and so the good news
spreads.
Mr. James Clark, Consecon, I'rince
Edward Co., Ont., states : "Eleven
years ago 1 was taka-n with pains i'i
my back, settling in my hips and
sxtending up my spine. The pain
was very severe, and at times almost unendurable, and mnny dnys
I waa not able to do an hour's
work. My weight was reduced from
190 to 160 pounds, and though I
had consulted many first-class physicians and tried several udvertised
medicines I could get no relief.
"At this _tinie my father-in-law

I to feel better after using   only   tho

I til   I hnd   taken about four   boxes,
I which made me a sound man,  nnd I
, also  regained my  usual  weight,   190
pounds    I  cannot say  too  much  in
; favor of Dr.    Chase's    Kidney-Liver
, Pills, which have done so much   for
I nn'.   1  hnve recommended them to a

FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 4th, 1903.
ence in the field carried with it the
elements making towards clean and
wholesome .politics, such as his Conservative and Labor opponents Ixith
dsairad. Mr. Bradshaw found that
his private interests would interfere
with the prosecution of tho campaign
and ho reluctantly withdraws, much
to the sorrow of his supporters and
the regret of his opponents. It is un-
derstood tke Liberals will endeavor to
bring out another candidate without
delay, and it is hoped that they may,
as it will demonstrate their determination to stand for party line politics.
The situation in the riding at no time
has beon very distrassing to the Conservatives and present circumstance*."-
have naturally brightened their prospects materially. Still, the Conservatives as a party earnestly desire to
see a Liberal candidate placed in nomination, and they will gladly welcome
his advent in tho field.
E01TOIUA1.    CBO"*Pl**"OS.
Tlio outside press contain many
■complimentary references to William
Hunter, the Conservative nominee in
the Slocan,ami all predict his election.
Confidence to a degree such as the
people have not had in years has come
to the province since a Tory government took hold of things at Victoria.
Silver tot c'lecl the highest point Ihis
week it has reached in two years and
it will keep ascending. Mineowners
are gaining heart and prospectors are
certain of reaping the reward of their
faith. It has been a heart-breaking
•struggle, but the day of deliverance i.s
at hand.
Ralph Smith, the oace mighty Labor leader of Niuiaimo,has fallen from
Jiis pedestal. Last week he held a
meeting of his followers, now reduced
to a scanty few, and urged them to
make overtures to the Conservatives —
tho Lilierals he is always next to- -to
fix up a scheme to defeat the Six-ialist
candidate, Hawthorntliwaite. My, my,
but how this vaunted Liberal-Labor
leader has dropped!
Libarals have lately taken to the
idea of government irrigation work.-
for the opening of the arid lands of
the province to agriculture, and would
have the electorate believe the idea
were original with theni. It, like that
of opening the country with roads and
' trails, has been stolen from the Cou
servative doctrine. Conservatives load
iu all matters touching the progress
and expansion of the country. Thrii
policy promotes the building up of
the nation.
The Slocan riding is essentially a
mining constituency and its repreaen-
Tative should Im a uialTTiavlng a thor
ough knowledge of its capabilities and
needs. In William Hunter, the Con
servatives have just such a iihih. He
is working mines himself and lit
knows every part of the riding likr a
liook. He knows aa extensive system
of trails is necessary and his aim is to
isee that all parts of the riding an
duly opeiisBid up aud fairly treated. In
this he has the encouragement of his
party and the government, whose
policy it is to encourage iniuing iu
every way practicable. The Consi-rv-
.fltive candidate knows what is requir*
led of him and he stands ready to 1 iy*
ally servo his constituents. Mr.
Hunter is a practical man and that i
what the people wants. Give hiin your
support,
In building tho Grand Trunk Pacific
railway and then turning it over to an
uncontrolled company for BO yens
the Liherals have postponed govern-
m 'iit ownership of the means ol trans
pollution just that long. Andrew
Blalr favared the government building
and operating the road, and be \va-
kieked out of the Dominion cabinet.
He believed In extending tho Inter*
colonial as a government road in the
interests of tli<i) people; th** Liberals
ai a party liolii'vo rather in pledging
the country's credit to buikl a rival
ro.id to the Intercolonial, so checking
its expansion and ruining its basis sil
support. Blair belloved in first ob
tuining all tbe information possible
from surveys, etc., before building th.'
road; his confreres in the cabinet ore
willing to go the scbeB.fl blind and in
ignorance, trusting to tbs Word of th*
wirepullers boosting the road. Liberals have had a golden opportunity to
further n grand cause for the people.
but ths-y have lamentably failed to
rise tt) the occasion.
