Monday night. Present: Mayor York,
Aid. Smith, Nichol, Bradshaw and
Preliminary matters disposed of,
tho clerk read a letter from Thomson
Bros., Vancouver, re order for a city
seal, and which had been cancelled.
After explanation, Aid. Bradshaw
and Nichol moved that tte seal be
accepted, Thomson Bros to pay the
express    Carried.
J. McB. Smith, deputy minister of
finance wrote, sending statement of
refund due the city under the Incorporation Act, as follows: "Refund of
real i roperty tax, $147.59; trade
licenses, $62,66; liquor licenses, $333.-
87; total $5*4.12. There may probably be a small amount of unpaid
taxes on the roll of 1901, which, if
collectible, a supplementary refund
may be made." A cheque for the
above amount was received by the
clerk on Saturday.
Mayor Yoik said there would be
more money coming to the city under
the real property tax, as ho knew of
several who had not paid up. The
government had also $600 liquor li-
cense money to be returned to the
city for the current term. Letter ordered fyled.
The mayor called attention to M.
Cameron's license for a livery stable,
which had been issued by tlie govern
ment and covering the full year.
Accordingly, there wns a larger refund on the same due thc city. Clerk
ordered to inquire into the matter.
The finance committee reported in
favor of the bills presented at last
meeting and recommended their p*y-
ment, exepting that fur the clerk'*,
salary, which was left over fur one

A petition was presented from A.
li. Bolderston and 18 others, asking
for an extension of the sidewalk on
Main street, from the Sloean Hotel to
tin- Miners' Union General Hospital.
Before entertaining the petition,
the mayor thought it would be well
for the finance committee to inquire
into the state of the city's treasury
and the probable cost of the walk.
It would require an eight-loot walk
and it sliou'd be put down at a recognized grade. The walk was neces
sary, as well as one on Delaney ave,
but it w .a a question of finance. The
matter was laid over for a week, lite
clerk in tlie meantime to write Frank
K etcher and ascertain If tlie town
site companv hadesta-blished a grade
for Main street.
Mayor Vork stated, in answer to a
query, that the incorporation note
had been paid during tlie day.

finance committee.
The mayor then made A pleasing
statement to the effect that he had
had during the week two or three
inquiries from the OUtslde as to what
inducements the cltV had tP offer in
the matter of getting a smelter established here, lie had been in Nelson
and had approached Frank Fletcher
on tho subject. The townsite company would do what thev could to
furtner the scheme and they would
grant a free site anywhere iu th"
city, preferrably the waterfront in
thc bn\*. The company would also
givo tlio city a plot of land for a
cemetery at any time.
The mayor suggested also that the
council should put in a stove in the
council chamber. Matter lefl to the
board of works to attend to.

Aid. Nichol inquired if it was the

Great things appear to be in store
for Erin mountain this winter and a
new era of development and pros
perity will open before that promising
section. To the city itself the out

the operations in contemplation will
have a direct bearing .upon local
business interests. The Republic

On Saturday evening the Kepublic
party left the city, after spending
several days in visiting various properties in the camp. Tlie party consisted of F. P. Wilcox, C. A.'Hurl-
hurt and F. D. Ilovcy, of Detroit; C.
Dempster, Rossland; aud fi. C.Campbell-Johnston, Nelson. They thoroughly inspected tho Republic, as
well as the Erin, Peerless, Phoenix
and Combination groups on the same
hill; the V & M and Champion, on
Twelve Mile; and the Arlington. In
conversation, Mr. Dempster stated it
was the intention o1:' the Republic
company to work on a large scale
throughout the winter. His principals were well satisfied with their
visit and were willing to expend
mnch money. New quarters would
be built at the mine and a big force
of men employed, under the supcriu-
tendency ofR. C, Caropbell-Johnstnn.
A wagon road Would also be constructed from tin; old Springer road

Press dispatches this week from
Portland give the following self-explanatory particulars about the Fhoe
nix, or Viking: A syndicaie of Portland men-tho Viking Mines Co.,
Limited—has Incorporated and purchased two valuable mining properties near Slocan City, British Coluni
bin, The company consists of about,
forty stockholders. About a year
ago the company bonded the properties, and the results were so satisfactory that the claims were bought outright. Tito capital stock of the cor
poratlon is $800,000, The lands are
about fifty miles north of tho internal ional boundary line. The board
of directors elected at organization is
made up of 11. I/iinbardl, Qeerge
Taylor, jr., T. W. I). London, A. 1)
Charlton, Harrison (I. Piatt, (Jeorge
Good and T. O. Dunbar, Mr. Dunbar
is the mining engineer of the company and it manager. The property Is about ii miles from Slocan City
and ore can be cheaply delivered at
Nelson or Trail by rail. The ore is
a free milling quartz, assaying about
•?10 in gold and silver. Belore Incorporation the company was known
as the Viking Development Syndicate. It spent considerable money
in exploiting work and the results
were highly satisfactory. The property already has two tunnels nud
one shaft, from which promising min
cral has been taken. The purpose is
to erect a stamp mill and reduction
plant. The mine has an abundance
of Water power and a large available
wood supply.

On Friday a portion of the flume
for carrying water to the Arlington
.sawmill gave way, Just below the
lumber camp. The water tore out
the sidehill and flooded tlie road, ll
took Frank Provost's gang several
davs to repair the damage, the mill
being idle in the meantime.

A. Vi. Teeter and it. Hutner have
received partial returns from their,
recent shipment to Nelson from the
Fourth of July group. Thero was
about 7 tors of ore shipped out and
the smelter's figures show a net return of $112 to the ton. The smelter
allowed only $0.50 for the gold values,-while the check assay on thc
pulp showed $18.50. If they get thc
balance, it will bring the total por
ton to $121. which is mighty good.
The Fourth of July is now being
worked under a sublease by R.Kurtz-
hals and partners.
The   Institution Getting;  Into   Working
A meeting of the board of trade
was held in the Oddfellows' hall, on
Friday evening, there being a fine
turnout of members. President W.
T. Shatford occupied the chair, and
in his opening remarkscongratulated
the board in starting off with such an
excellent nu'mbership, the size of
which augured well for the success of
the institution. Thero was much to
be done in tho interests of tlie city
and cainp.and the board should seize
the present opportunity, while general attention was turned to the re
sources of the district, to secure a
smelter and other valuable improvements. Working in conjunction with
the city council, the board of trade
could do a great deal towards upbuilding Slocan.
Following these remarks came the
reading of a coupe of communications from Greenwood, dealing with
bylaws; and thc passing of some
small accounts. Other routine matters incidental to organization occupied the whole evening. On motion
the executive board was increased to
15, tlie additional members elected
being T. McNeish, D. Arnot, Wm.
Thomlinson, R. A. Bradshaw, J. G.
McCallum, J. Holden, S. B. Clement,
A. York, C. M. Gcthing, J. V. Purviance, J. A. Foley and II. L. Fife.

Slowly the printed words appeared
through the mist—tlie mercifnl mist—
"Survivors of the Arikhama." And
then the paragraph went on to tell this
wondrous tale of the sea. How a sailing
brig, nnder stress of weather, had found
herself driven npon a rocky islet in the
far Pacific, It was not an unknown is
land, bnt an uninhabited one, being too
far ont of the ordinary track of vessels
and too small and poor in quality of
land to make it worth while for any one
to settle there. The sailing vessel, finding herself driven very near, pnt in to
renew her stores of water nnd, to the
astonishment of the captain and crew,
discovered three men and" a dog in possession of the island. These were the
captain and two of the crew of the ill
fated steamship Arikhama, who, after
drifting about in an open boat for many
weeks and suffering nnheard of privations, had found themselves tossed npon
thia faroff strand, which had been to
them so long a living grave.
Captain Conway and the two soamen
were the only three men out of nine
who had survived tho hardships and privations of that long and terrible voyage
and the cruel life of isolation which followed. Then came a description of how
the rescued men had lived. Penguins
eggs, occasional fish and roots of various kinds bad formed their chief sustenance. The whole account ended with
details of bow the three men had wept
like madmen on meeting their rescuers,
and the concluding sentences said
"When we tell our readers that Captain Conway had only beeu married a
few months when he set out on the
Arikhama's last ill fated voyage, it will
easily be understood that his anxiety to
have news of bis wife wns overpowering. The captain and crew of the Lively Jeanie, however, were not able to
satisfy him on this point, bnt tbey sail
ed tbe following day for Melbourne, and
Captain Conway will set sail for home
immediately on arrival at that port."

not to grumble or to be surprised that

tration of sunshine in  London.   Some

She sat for some little time longer.
indeed until John came to clear the table. Then, from some womnn's instinct
of hiding the tragedy through which
she was passing, she rose and carried
tlio paper to the fire and stood there
reading au account of the fancy dress
ball given by the lady mayoress of London—aye, and reading it attentively
They had been present thereat. Her
areas was described—her dress and
Alan's—almost side by side with the
words which told of the rescue of the
survivors of the Arikhama.
Then John betook himself away, and
she was once more left alone. Sbe formed no plans, her dazed brain refused to
take in anything more than the stern
and bare facts. Edward Conway was
•live—oa his way home—eager and
anxious to find her And she was here.
In the old Fnlham house, masquerading to the world as Alan Stacey's lion-
oted wife I
And Alan wonld have to be told I Hs
Wonld have to see the papers; he wonld
have to decide where she was to go,
what she was to do, how sbe could best
hide herself from the monster wbo had

Sbe was still sitting there, When 11
strokes of the clock warned her that the
morning was passing — when tbey

Then a smart housemaid came in with
a message.
"Please, ma'am, master is much better, and if you have quite done with'
the paper he wonld bo glad if you would
send it np stairs to him."
Mary's first instinct waa to carry the
paper up stairs to Alan Stacey herself
to break the news to him there and then
But hard upon tho heels of this thought
came another—that he waa but just
over a very violent headache, and it
would becTuel to tell him that moment
She therefore whisked out tho middle
page and gave the rest of tbe paper to
the maid.
"Tell Mr. Stacey that I will come np
in a few minutes," she said.
When the servant had left the room,
ber first thought was how she conld
best conceal that part of the paper from
Alan. Then she ran to the door.
"Alice, Alice, come back!" sho called. "Give me the paper I will go up
to Mr. Stacey myself."
But she did not go up at once Sbe
turned back into the dining room nnd
deliberately tore the sheet containing
the telegram across, so that the corner
where the account of tbe rescue of the
survivors of the Arikhama had been
was gone. This she threw into the-tire
Then she went np the wide shallow
stairs and tnrned in at ber bedroom
"My dear boy," she said in a tone as
mnch like her natural voico as supreme
effort could make it, "I really don't

as usual."
Sbe glanced down the day by day
column, gave him a list of all the
items oi news that might in any way
serve to interest him, and after that
tbey talked for a little while, and then
Alan Stacey said that he might as well
get np as lie idling there, and Mary
went down stairs again, carrying the
paper in ber hand; carrying also her
burden with her; carrying with her
the knowledge and the conviction that
he would have to be told; that she must
be the one to break the news to him;
that there must be no shirking it. no
getting ont of it; that it was a task
which lay right in front of her, a task
which she must accomplish—and the
sooner the better
Then she remembered that if she told
him Alan would naturally ask to see
the paper containing tbe newa Bnt she
had burned it I Sbe felt—so strangely
are we moved by trifles in times of
great difficulty—tbat she could not endure to let him know that her first
thought had been to hide the truth
from bim. Then how was she to account to him for having destroyed that
part of the paper? Should she send out
and get another copy f She did not like
to do tbat, nor did she like to go herself—it would look so strange
And then the thought came to her
Why tell bim at all ? Why say anything
about it? Why break np and destroy
their intense happiness? Nothing could
be wider apart than the lives led by
Edward Conway and Alan Stacey's
wife Why udmit that she had seen the
news that part of tbe crew of tbe Arikhama had been rescued ? Jnst now.
when Alan was showing signs of overwork and about to take a holiday, it
would be cruel to deal him such a blow.
A few weeks longer in her sunshine
would make no difference to anybody
but herself Alan would never know—
Edward Conway need never know-
that she had been aware all along that
three men belonging to the Arikhama
had been rescued off an uninhabited

at least let Alan finish bis book—the
greatest book be bad ever done—take his
holiday, and, if the blow fell then—why,
be would be the better prepared to
meet it It would be bad enongb if Ed-,
ward Conway discovered bsr and tbe
secret could not be kept any longer.
Having this made np her mind to
keep the news which had reached ber
to herself, sbe acted immediately She
destroyed the torn sheet of U» paper
snd thrust tho part which remained
carelessly into tbe rack with the other
journals, trusting to ber own wit to
keep Alan from wishing to look at it
during the day. It was an off day with
the yonng lady who typed to her dictation, so that she was free of any tie of
work. She set herself to do some needlework in order that she might look occupied when Alan mode his appearance,
and she sat near the window stitching
indnstrionsly, while her mind went over
snd over again such shreds of self
justification as she could find to salve
her conscience. She told herself that it
was not as if she had gone into an irregular union with her eyes open.
She bad truly and honestly believed
hersolf to be Edward Conway's widow,
and ber marriage with Alan was her
real marriage. What was it tbey said?
"I require and charge you both, as ye
will answer at the dreadful day of judgment, when the secrets of all hearts sball
be disclosed, if either of yon know of
any impediment why ye may not lawfully be joined together in matrimony,
ye do now confess it." Then came these •
impressive words: "Those whom God
bath joined together let no mnn put
asunder." Surely, Burely, God had joined them; surely, surely, it had been by
tho permission of God that such a blaze
of pure and innocent joy and glory had
come Into her life; surely she would be
doing right to continue such a union.
Tho most fanatical and bigoted lover of
conventionalism conld never wish tbat
she should go back to live the life of
shame and degradation which had been
hers during those few months after her
first marriage—after that barbarous sale
of herself into which she had been driven
by circumstances absolutely beyond her
Alan Stacey came down presently,
and when Mary noticed bow haggard
and ill he was looking she thanked
heaven that she had kept the news of
Edward Conway's survival to herself.
She exerted "erself in every possible
way to please him, coaxing him to eat
when lnnchtimo came and being seemingly in the gayest and brightest of
spirits. But nothing served to rouse him
from the dull depression which seemed
to have taken possession of him.
"I believe you ought to have staid
in bed," sbe said at last as he sat moping nnd. shivering over the fire.
"No; I'm better up," he answered.
"The book is weighing on your mind,
dearest "
"Horribly," he replied, "horribly. I
feel as if I should never finish it."
"Oh, don't say that! You've been
burning the candle at both ends. You
cannot do this work and go to fancy
dress balls at the same time. Why not
let us slip away and finish it quietly
somewhere? Supposing that we pack

where we can work in peace and coin-

"I have been often asked why railway engineers disregard their Instructions nmi the warning signals along the
i.ne of their rond," said the general superintendent of a railroad to a man,
"and I have summed It up that it is human nature for men to take chances ln
their business and that engineers are
no exception to the general run.
"Sometimes they cannot give a satisfactory reason why they do so. I will
give you an authentic Instance of this
habit which made nae live 10 years In
oil minutes.
"On a road I was at the time connected with was n long trestle over a bay
several miles In length, with a drawbridge In the center. The draw had
been opened, and as a tugboat was
passing through the bridge men heard
the rumble of u fust, heavily laden
passenger train as It struck the bridge
a mile away. Knowing that the red
danger slsiuils were set with the opening of the draw, tliey supposed that the
engineer would slow up or stop, us
might be necessary. Instead, to their
consternation, the train came along nt
regular speed, and a frightful accident
appeared Inevitable. Tliey yelled to the
captain of the tugboat to go at full
speed, nud a's the boat glided through
the draw In the darkness tliey exerted
themselves to swing the draw Into the
locking bolts before the train could get
to the point where tbe rails separated.
"Tbe engineer, however, disregarded
the last danger signal, a few hundred
yards from the draw, and came on. By
a remarkable coincidence of time and
position the draw, which was of course
In motion, swung so that the rails of
the east bound track were In juxtaposition with the west bound track, upon
which the train was running, and the
heavy engine and one of the passenger
coaches, striking the east bound rails,
glided upon the draw and stuck there,
the remaining portion of the train being on thc west bound track, making
almost a figure S of tbe coaches.
"If the draw bad moved the thirtieth
part of a second faster or slower, the
east bound rails would not have been
opposite the west bound rails at the
very Instant that the great engine
struck tbem, and a frightful disaster
would have resulted. When I got out
on the bridge*a few minutes later, I
fully expected to find the train In the
bottom of the bay and the draw smashed Into splinters. I discharged the engineer on the spot and asked him why
be bad not observed tbe signals. He
admitted that he saw them, but could
not give a satisfactory reason for falling to observe tbem. He evidently took
his chances of finding tbe draw closed

"The engineer of today Is a sober,
steady, nervy man. especially on tbe
fast express trains on the big roads. It
Is nerve that makes one man carry a
limited express train through the darkness of the night, fog, sleet and blinding snow at 00 miles an hour. The stories we read about of an engineer losing his nerve after nn accident are
largely fiction. In 27 years of active
railroad life I have had but one or two
men apply to me for a transfer upon
tbe ground thnt tbelr nerves had gone
back on them for running the fast

view of It; they have ta If It Is tbelr
fault, we discharge them, and tbey can
take any view of It they please then,
for wo do not wish In our employ careless men. Tbls Is true with all of tbe
big roads, and as a result American engineers of today are about as model a
aet of men in •'heir employment aa can
be found."

Plaatant Story Told of Ilia Father' n Mssn
ssf Many Avosnsttoiis
Tha lato Sonator Allan, says Tho
Hamilton Times, wns u, native »*ud
a life-long resident of Toronto, benevolent, industrious nnd uniformly
courteous. His lifo, und thut of his
father, Hon. IVillnini Allan, who
diet! in 1853, cover tho term of lhe
wholo history of Toronto, Mid,
indeed, of tho Province of Uppor Cun-
nda, or Ontario. Tlio books of biography say that Hon. William Allan
"was a pioneer settlor who took up
his abode in Vork during Governor
Slmcoe's term of ofliee," thnt is
soma timo between 1702 and 1790.
lie was the first postmaster and tho
tlrst custom collector in York, now
Toronto. In the Canadian archjvos
of 1898 Mr. Douglas Brymner has
copied a letter, probably written
about the year 181*7, designed to express the popular discontent at the
monopolization ml all the public offices by a few families. Tho letter,
which was anonymous, was addressed to Lord Bathurst and dated at
Montreal in August-(no year), and
purported to give the experience ol
an Oswego man who visited Toronto
and met lion. William Allan at every
turn. Tho story is in theso words:
Tho following very pleasant story
was related to nie a fow days t go
by an acquaintance on whoso veracity 1 placed confidence. A gentleman
crossed to York from Oswego; on
arriving at thc littlo capital he Mi-
quired for the custom house as be
had some goods aboard to enter at
that office; he was shown the place
hard by tho qua*y. Thc collector proved to be a very mild, good-nnturod
gentleman as might bo; quite a man
of business, too, very conversant
with figures, in short a man very
well known on 'Change, as tho saying is, he was Mr. William Allan. On
opening his trunk Mr. Z. found
some of his letters were to be left lit
tho postofflce of York; he inquired
whero it was located end in tho
postmaster recognized—Mr. William
Allan. He had somo bills which he
wished" to discount, had them properly endorsed, posted off to '-he
Bauk of Upper Canada,-was shown
the President of that institution,
and that president was tho indefatigable — Mr. William Allan. A day
or two after ho was accompanying n
friend, who had come t« town to
pay some money for a store and
tavern licenses; on arriving ut ihe
office of Inspector of Licenses, lie
was amazed to find that functionary
also in the person of Mr. William
Allan. A review of tho militia took
place while ho stayed; he had thc
curiosity to go to see it, nnd recognized in tho colonel his (now) old
acquaintance — Mr. William Allan.
A row took placo in the hotel whore
he lodged, his evidence wus wanted,
and tbo acting magistrate was —Mr.
William Allan. Taking up a paper to
amuse himself, be read the names of
the society for strangers in distress.
the treasurer was — Mr. William
Allan. Walking with a friend to tie
hospital, he was told tho nnmos of
the trustees; one of them wns — Mr.
William Allan. lie happened to overhear a debate nbout a property
which had been forfoits*d by u. man
who ran away in thc time of war;
tho names of the commissioners were
mentioned in tho course of tho argument, and ono of them was — Mr.
William Allan. Another dny ho met
a friend from Niagara in doleful
mood, inquired tho cause, and was
Informed that the commissioners for
war losses had cut cd half his clnisn.
Who are the commissioners? ashed
he of Oswego. Thu reply was A. PL,
(J. D. and — Mr. William Allan. Ho
sold some of his goods to a merchant, who gave him an order en
tho treasurer of thc district. Thu
treasurer was — Mr. William Allan.
He had occasion to inquire for a
black chip hat and wus directed for
a good ono to apply at the store ol
—Mr. Willaim Allan. Ho could hold
no longer, but amazed, astonished
and confounded, exclaimed: How 1
pity tho poor mnn, this Mr. William
Allan, if he docs tho duty of so
many situations his life must surely
bo a burden to himself, and If he
does not how I pity a country, tho
laws of which allow ono man to holsl
such a number of important trusts
at one and the samo time. Poll I
said my Uncle Sim, who lives near
President Allan, in thc samo street,
you are a stranger, and should be silent. You seo but a small specimen
of the blessings of our Provincial
Oovernment. The Colonel is an Ab-
srdeensmnn. An Abcrdccnsman, quoth
I. Yea, says he, a Scotchman,     you
know. Ah, I havo you now, a favor
its of thc Government. Exactly B0"
was the reply, a townsman ol tho
Hon. and Rev. Dr. Strachan, owner
of tlio palaco thore, a real uan ol
business and worth a plum, In short
he Is—he is—Mr. Willlaln Allan (O
887-1 p. 111.) '  ,y*"
This, Mr. Brymner says, i* no
doubt a fair sample of tho method
of criticising the actions of tho ml-
Ing party ln tho Province. Tho fnct
appears to have been that William
Allan was a man of moro than w-
dlnary ability, and possessed a good
education, which was an advantago
rather uncommon in those ci-rly
days. He morriod a daughter of Dr.
John Gamble, who belonged to &
prominent U. E. Loyalist family, and
had been a surgeon in the Queen's
Hangers. Thus ho was qualified to
perform the many varioties of work
which fell to hts share.
Tlie son inherited the father's ability and fondness for public life, ond
had in addition a largo fortune,
which the growth of the city rnd
country had brought to those who
were fortunate in the selection mi ■
acquirement of lands. It cannot bs
said of Senator G. W. Allan that he
was a grasping man, adding dollar
to dollar aud acre to acre. Rather
he appears to have been one who
felt that his wealth and position involved a duty to the country, and
especially to the community In which
he lived. Thus ho won and retained
the respect of his contemporaries,
and his name will be hold in h**nor
by coming genorntlons.

It Is Not a Stimulant
But a Tonic Tou Need
Hosts of people do themselves irreparable harm and
shorten their lives by many years by thc use of stimulating
drugs to whip up the exhausted nervous system and keep the
machinery of the body working. Others get temporary relief
from nervous headaches and body pains by the use of deadening and nerve-destroying narcotics. Both of these treatments
mean death to the nervous system and hasten the approach of
paralysis and insanity.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is a protest against these old-
fashioned and villainous methods of treatment. Unlike any
other medicines you ever used, Ur. Chase's Nerve Food forms
new red corpuscles in the blood and creates new nerve tissue
to replace that di stroyed by overwork and disease. It is impossible to obtain a more effective treatment for nervous disorders than Ur. Chase's Nerve Food, because it gradually and
naturally restores the wasted nerve cells and rebuilds the system. It is the up-to-date remedy for weakness and disease
resulting from wasted nerves.

The Experience of Thomas Cada, of
Essex Co.—Nerves Seemed Shattered, and He Felt Unfitted to
Stand Hard Work.
From the Iteview, Windsor, Ont.
Mr. Thomas Cada, of Plko Creek,
a small village in Essex county, is
known to almost everyone in that
section. Ho is a son of Mr. John
Cada, mill owner, and a prominent
politician in his locality. A representative of the Windsor Review,
who had known that some time previously Mr. Cada was in poor health,
recently met him looking anything
but an invalid, and naturally asked
what had restored him to health.
"Dr. Williams' Pink Pills." promptly
replied Mr. Cada. When asked if he
would give tho particulars for publication, Mr. Cada said "certainly, if
you think it worth while; but there
is nothing very wonderful about my
case. I was simply badly run down;
my netves seemed to bo all shattered, and I was unable to stand hard
work. In fact, work of any kind
left me badly used up. There did not
seem to be any organic trouble, it
wus just a case of being run down
and worn out. I felt myself gradually getting worse, however, and I
began taking medicine. I tried several advertised remedies, but they
did not help me, indeed somo of
them did mo more harm than good.
Just then I read of a case much like
mine cured by the use of Dr. Williams' Tink Pills, and I purchased a
few boxes. Very soon I noticed a do-
cided improvement in my condition
and iu the course of a few weeks 1
was feeling my old-time self. 1 can
now eat heartily, do a good day's
work with no unusual fatigue, and
in fact feel thoroughly renewed in
health and strength. Naturally I
think Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a
great, msidicine for those who are
weak ssr ailing."
If you are feeling run down and
eusily tired, you need a tonic to put
you right—to make you feel bright,
active and strong, and the only always reliable tonic is Dr. Williams'
PlnU Pills for Pale People. (live
these pills a fair trial and you will
find that their curative powers have
not been over-praised. Sold by all
dealers in medicine, or aent post
paid at 50 cents a box, or six boxes
for ta.sS0- by addressing the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brock ville. Ont.

Sherlock Holmes, Jr., clutched his companion's arm and in low, distinct tones
"Hist, hist!"
"Why?" tbe other asked, looking
around, mystified.
"There," the great nmnteur detective
replied, pointing nt a middle aged man
who was crossing the street just ahead of
them, "Is one whose wife went away
last night to rest iu some nice, cool, quiet
place, leaving bim to stay at home and
get his own meals."
"Is he some friend of yours?"
"1 never saw hiui before. This Is
merely another of my astonishing deductions."
"Holmes, yon are a constant source of
wonder to me. I can't convince myself
that yon are not possessed of occult powers. You must have second sight or
something of that kind. I am getting so
that I almost hate to think wben I am
with you, fearing that you will know
what I am thinking about."
Sherlock gave bis shoulders a slight
shrug and continued in a careless way,
as if it really didn't amount to much:
"No, I am not supernatural. Honestly,
I wouldn't lie to you about a thing of
this kind. It's merely my wonderful gift
of deducing. I ought to have mentioned,
too. that he gets his meals on a gas stove.
Now I wiU tell you how I know all this,

Notice, please, that he twists his mustache np at the ends and tbnt be shaves

get bis own meals right along when his
wife is st home soon lets his beard grow,
partly to save time and partly because he
gets discouraged and doeBn'* care to keep
on looking handsome. So it is clear that
this man is his own cook only temporarily."
"But how do yon know he is his own
cook, tbat he uses a gas stove and tbat
bis wife went away last night?"
"Ab, there is where my deduction
scomes In. You see, you didn't notice
when he passed us that his eyebrows
were singed off. That tells the whole
story. He turned on the gas and then
looked for a match. A man always does
that when ho starts to get his first meal,
but never afterward."
"This is wonderful," said tbe man who
bad been listening. "Come in and bave
a cigar."
While lighting bis pnnatella at the
swinging gas jet tbe great amateur de-
tctive got to thinking of something else
and singed off the south end of bis left

Hon. Mr. Brown, provincial secre-

Westminster   Wednesday,   Thomas
.Gifford haying 52 majority.
After a bitter struggle of four
. years, during which timo its owners
experienced much hardship and some
notoriety, the Silverton Silvertonian
ceased publication on Saturday. It is
an indication of the barren formation
the newspaper fraternity of the Slocan is up against.
.Socialism and Anarchism are classed as one antl the same cult these
times, both being1 held responsible for
the assassination of President McKinley. Bah! There is quite as
much difference between the two as

ty and insanity, preservation and
destruction, or a Huskin and a Czol-

Agitation for the establishment of
. a smelter here is having the desired
effect. Mayor York has had two inquiries from responsible outside parties, asking for information on the
subject. Thc city stands ready to
do everything in its power to encourage the location of a smelter, nnd the
townsite company will givo a free
site. That la a good start, and it is
being helped out by the constantly
increasing ore shipments from tin: di
vision. So much capital is becoming
interested in the camp, and the demand for dry ore is such, that it is a
certainty influences will be brought
to bear to make Slocan a sjnelting
•centre, The need is great and the
opportunity favorable.
Despite the sanguine hopes held
,out last week for his recovery, Pros
jdent McKinley sucoumbed to the
wounds indicted by the anarchist
Czolgosz. It is a hard blow to the
American nation, which, for the
.third time in 40 years, has to mourn
ior a murdered ruler. President
McKinley lived a blameless life and
died in a fearless manner. Not even
Abraham Lincoln had a greater hold
on the affections of his people. The
two great Anglo-sSaxon peoples have
each passed under thc rod of national
alHiction on the threshold of the new
century, and a common sorrow has
served to strengthen tho bonds of
friendship and goodwill between
them. Canadians, in the midst of
