Taking Out Ore.
The mineral resources of the country lying at the head of Lemon creek
will receive much attention this winter and by spriug the merit of that
section will lx? proven. Three properties will l>e operated and from two
of these, anyway, shipments of ore
will be made.
On one of these properties, the
group owned by Cal Hittle and Pat
Nolan, there has been expended touch
labor, and just as soon as the snow
will permit they will rawhide down to
the basin several tons of ore. It will
go to Kootenay lake via the Six Mile
road. A lease has recently been given
on the property to Marks Bros, and
partners and four men will work there
this winter. Cal Hittle left here on
Friday with eight packhorses loaded
with supplies for the mine.
At the Nansen, owned by Young &
Thoitilinson, four men are employed
and all kinds of ore is exposed. Cameron <fc Kennedy, of this town, have a
contract to pack out three cars of oie
from the Nansen during the season.
It, too, goes out by way of the Six
Mile road, and it is likely other shipments will follow.
The third property being worked is
tho Lady Franklin, on which two
men are employed. They have ore
exposed at a number of points and by
spring will have a good deal of it on
the dumps. Next season will witness
additional life on the Franklin.

SHE WAS IN BED
FOR THREES YEARS
Pain Hacked Woman] Cured
y by Dodd'sjKIdney Pills.
Stroujr Statement by Mrs. Jas. Hughes
•if Morley, Ont. She's Strong and
Healthy Onco More.
Morley, Ont., Nov. 28.—(Special).
—What Dodd's Kidney Pills are doing for tho suffering women ot Canada will never be fully known. It is
only when some courageous woman
breaks the secrecy that covers woman and hor (troubles that a passing
glimpse of their great work is given.
For this reason a statement made by
Mrs. Jas. Hughes, of this place, Is of
more than passing interest.
"I was a great sufferer for four
years," says Mrs. Hughes. "I was
treated by five doctors and a specialist frani the U. S. I tried nearly
every medicine I could hoar of but
none seemed to do me any good.
"I was irt bed for nearly three
years. I hnd pains up my spinal column, in my head, over my eyes,
across my back nnd through my left
side. I took fourteen boxes of Dodd's
Kidney Pills, and now I am strong
nnd able to do a good day's work,
thanks to Dodd's Kidney Pills."
BALTIC FLEET VICTIMS LAID TO
RESTi
Although the cent re of interest attar the outrage on the North Sea
fishing fleet was quickly removed
from Hull to London, and is now at
Vigo, tho sad ceremonies of the funeral brought nbout a great public
demonstration, says a London cablegram.    The route, which was nearly
two miles . in length, and passed
through the populous districts of
West Hull, whore the fishermen reside, wus crowded with spectators,
Most of the shops were shut, and
there were many (lags at halt-mast,
and other tokens of sympathy. Tha
scene in Kibble avenue, Ih<* residence
nl' Captain George Smith of the
Crane, wns pathetic nnd impressive.
Captain White, the veteran lender
Of the Fishermen's Mission. read
prayers at the house, then the polished elm coffin, bearing the legend,
"At rest," at the foot, and covered
with beautiful llowers, was home
from the window to a plnce in the
adjacent square by fishermen clad
In their blue jerseys. The band of
the local branches of the Ordor of
Buffaloes was drawn up in the square
and played "Lead. Kindly Light."
Hoon afterwards the ooffln containing the body of William Leggott, the
third hand on the Crane and a native of Yarmouth, arrived from a
friend's house and joined tho cortege.
Amongst the mourners was Smith's
son, who was with his father on the
Crane at the time of the sad and
terrible occurrence. In the vicinity
of the fish docks signs of mourning
wero particularly noticeable, blinds
being drawn and thousands of persons lined the route to thc cemetery.
The mayor and town clerk attended
the service, and hundreds of wreaths
were received. The funeral precession
was over a mile in length, and included the blue-Jackets from H. M.
S. Hearty, a number of fishermen and
representatives ol" all the Mull public
bodies. Many pathetic scenes were
witnessed at the grnvesldo. and the
fact that Leggott's mother only
beard of the death of her son on
Wednesday morning elicited much
sympathy.
HE WAS A THRIFTY SCOTCHMAN
Robert Doss wns in court at Edinburgh on a process procured by his
vile charging him with desertion.
The wife testified that the.v were married seven years ago, and the fact
was kept from her mother. Hoss prevailed upon her to continue with her
mother, ns that would save him expense. When nsked if Hoss hnd over
made her any presents, she said that
he had once given her a purse, but it
did not contain any money. He hud
ulso given her a scenl bottle, but it
contained no scent. In presenting the
latter, tho wife testified that Ross
suid her mother would In* willing to
purchase the scent.
CANADA IS UNEQUALLED FOR
HORSE BREEDING.
Lord Rtrathconu presided nl the
annual mooting In London of the Colonial Institute. Mr. Spark rend n
paper on the wealth of Canada us nn
agricultural country, nnd said he
was convinced that when Canadians
got rid of the Pereheron blood and
pay less attention to trotting horses
Canada will become one of the foremost horse-breeding Countries in the
world. He expressed surprise that
the llritish Oovernment had no remount depot In Canada. Lord
Struthcona said that the War Offlco
no doubt would consider this matter.

ART OF RAISING  CHILDREN.
Duty of Tarentt II They Would Hav* TbeU
Oflftprlne lionet, Truthful and
Virtuous.
To sum up within a nutshell the
art of raising a child, 1 should say
to parents, "Set the child a good ex-
umple."
Children arc naturally imitative,
and if they have before them patterns of honesty, of truthfulness and
of virtue genorully they, too, Will
strive to bo honest, truthful and virtuous. And still more readily will
they emulate vicious examples set before them.
The fault with most parents is that
they are too lazy to be firm in dealing with their children. Rather than
exercise a little patience in explaining to their child tho reason why lt
should act thus and not otherwise,
most parents will surrender to its
whims and caprices and by constant
indulgences render thc little one self-
willed and headstrong almost beyond
control.
Be sure you aro right in opposing
the child's wishes, but then insist on
having your own way to tho drop of
the flag.
I do not approve of punishment for
children. To do good, as a rule, punishment should be administered only
in such a way that thc child should
understand the reason for it. And to '
possess this degree of understanding
the child must havo reached an ago
when punishment cannot be otherwiso
than degrading.
To degrade a child in its own eyes
necessarily deteriorates it. To whip a
girl of fourteen inevitably tends to
degrade and debase her.
Some of the best parents have bad
children, upon whom no amount of
moral suasion and no extent of go0d
examples can hnvo any beneficial influence. In these rare cases the fault,
of course, lies with tho children, and
tho parents have no other recourse
except, to punish. Dut in punishing
there should bo much good judgment
exorcised.
The rod should bo only for the extremely vicious—only for those who
display u malignant, spirit, such as
tormentors of other children or of
animals.
In fact, in all cases I think it wisest to "make the punishment lit the
crime." If, for instance, n boy
throws a stone nt a cat or a dog the
best and quicl.es! wny to correct this
tendency is by whipping him. Take a
rod and givo him a sound thrashing,
but yet so as not to injure nor disfigure him. Dy making him feel pain
you make him renli/o the monstrous
wrong of wantonly inflicting pain upon  others.
But if, to take n different example,
a girl, in disobedience to her pur-
ents. goes to picnics, or stays out
late, or associates with unlit companions, it would bo manifestly improper to whip her. Thc way to
make tho punishment fit the crime in
her case is to lock her up. By so doing you deprive her of the motive for
doing wrong, while in thc case of tho
malicious boy the Whipping acted .as
a counter motive to overcome the
motive supplied hy the pleasure of
tormenting the eat or .dog.
But, as I havo said, administer
corporal punishment only sparingly,
for at best any form of punishment
is drastic and ought to be resorted
to only when every other argument
fails.
If a child takes pleasure in unfair
dealing or lying, let the father ask
himself whether he himself was not
guilty of inculcating that disposition
by his otfn example. How often will
not a father como homo and at tho
table, with his children around him,
tell aliout his "smartnessj' in overreaching a follow man!
If a child hears his father exalt lying, deceitfulness, unfairness ' and
double dealing, how can wc expect
tho child to grow up to ho honest,
truthful and honorable?—John B.
McKenti, Judge of Children's Court
of New York Citv.

The intelligent foreigner could not
understand how so prudish a nation
as the English could have adopted
the Carter and the Bath as the titles
of lis highest orders. With regard to
tho Bath, there is a greater puzzle.
Woro Knights of tho Bath lirst created on October HI, 1899, at tho
coronation of Henry IV., and merely
revived by George L, in 1725, after
long dormancy'.' Or Were thero no
Knights or tho Bath beforo King
Oeorgo? The solution is probably to
bo found in the the origin of tho
title—tho condition—namely, that tho
Candidate for knighthood must tako
a solemn bath, being instructed and
counselled, while in the bath, concerning lhe order and feats of chivalry by two great uml ancient knights.
But ns this appears to have l,een
part of llu* full ceremony for ordinary knight bachelors, it is possible
thnt Henry's alleged Knights of tho
Bath' were nothing mure.

Bad blood means bad health. Thut
is why llr. Williams' Pink Bills
mean good health — they actually
make new, rich blood. Bad blood
poisons the whole system. The nerves
break down, the liver goes wrong,
tho kidneys got clogged and inflamed, the heart flutters and jumps
at tho least excitement, the stoinach
loses its power to digest food, tho
lungs are unable to throw ofl tho
lingering colds, in fact the whole
body gets out of order. Then you
have headaches and backaches, can't
sleep and can't eat and feel utterly
miserable. And It all comes from
bad blood, and can be cured by the
rich, red blood Dr. Williams' Dink
Pill:; sends coursing to every part of
the body. Mr. Daniel McKinnon, of
North I'elham. Ont., suffered from
bad blood, but has been made well
and strong by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills after all other treatment had
failed. Mr. McKinnon says: "Until
last spring I had been afflicted with
a weak stomach, headaches and kidney troubles. At times I was completely prostrated and my sufferings
wero of a most severe nature. At
different times I wns treated by no
less than seven doctors, but from
none of them did I get moro thnn
temporary relief. As time went on
I became hopeless of ever being well
again. Last spring a friend drew my
attention to Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and I decided to try this medicine. I had only taken four boxes
when I found a decided Improvement
in iny condition, nnd I continued using the pills until I had taken a
dozen boxes, when I was a cured
mnn, and the sufferings I had formerly endured were but a disagreeable memory. I admit being nn enthusiastic admirer of Dr. Williams'
I'ink Pills, but I think I have just
cans'* for my enthusiasm, nnd will
nlways recommend them to ailing
friends." A,
Just us surely ns Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills cured Mr. McKinnon they
can cure nnne.mia. indigestion, hend-
nches, backaches, kidney trouble,
rheumatism, lumbago, sciatica, neural u:i.i. nervousness, general weakness
and the special ailments of growing
girls and women. * All these nil-
ments come from bad blood, and Dr,
Williams' Tink Pills can curp them
by filling the veins with new, rich,
red blood. But you must be sure to

WOMAN'S DREAM LEADS TO A
FATAL DISASTER.
As a result of a dream Thursday
nrght. Mrs. Lizzie Couet, of Chicago,
41 years of age. lost her life, and her
husband and infant child were fatally burned in a firo which partly dost rayed their home. Tho woman
dreamed thnt her savings had been
stolen from a hiding place in the
bottom of a sugar jar in the pantry.
Stat tied by the reality of the dream,
she took a lamp in one hand and her
baby under her other arm. and
went to investigate. The lamp fell
from the woman's hand nnd exploded, Her husband, aroused from sleep
in an adjoining room, made a brave
attempt to put the flames out, and
finally succeeded with thp aid of a
mattress, but only after he. as well
as tho wife and child, had been
frightfully burned. Mrs. Couet died
while being taken  to the hospital.
The following article is reproduced
from Farm, Stock & Home, ono of
the ablest and most careful of the
agricultural papers of tho United
States, published at Minneapolis:—
"A few of us farmers'are thinking
of going to, the Canadian Northwest
to sottle, but we are told that if we
get very far from water transportation that rail ratos will cat up the
profits on wheat and other grains,
since the rates aro so much higher
thero than on our roads in the
States. Thoy say the Canadian Pacific having no competition can do as
it pleases in charging, and it pleases
to got very high rates, as compared
with ours, and they aro high enough,
tho Lord koaws."—Some North Dakota Farmers.
Answer—The Canadian Pacific is no
more monopolistic than our roads.
Half a dozen roads may constitute a
monopoly as well as one, and a monopoly is what tho various lines
penetrating our Northwest have ever
maintained, especially as to local
rates. But a few figures will answer
your question.
The grain rate, per 100 pounds,
from Port Arthur, the nearest lake
port, including steerago charges and
insurance, to Winnipeg, 431 miles, is
in cents. A rnto sheet of the Great
Northern road lying before us shows
thnt it charges that much for around
a 140-mile haul. From Port Arthur
to Brandon, r>l}4 miles, the rate is
18 cents. The Great Northern
charges the sumo from Barnesville to
Minneapolis. 218 miles: and for a
523-mile haul it charges 18 cents,
from Minot, your stnte, to Minneapolis, The Canndiaii Pacific from
Moose Jaw, 824 miles, is 18 cents,
while the Croat Northern charge is
25 cents from Williston, 644 miles.
The Canadian Pacific rate from Edmonton, the centre of the great
wheat-growing district, is 28 cents,
and the distance i.s 1,488 miles
Many more comparisons could be
given but. these are typical of all,
and they apply to nil our northwestern ronds ns well ns to the Greal
Northern.
lt requires no argument to convince one thnt our roads can afford
to transport grain Cheaper thnn the
Canadian Pacific Railway can. because they run through more thickly
settled regions, creating immensely
more traffic each wny.
It is not pleasant to give Information of this kind, because it makes
one feel it is encouraging the migration of our people to alien lands, IM
"the Lord knows" that this journalls
not responsible for the situation, and
mny be it will be well in the long run
for the poople to see who nre or what
is responsible for nt least one inducement, to many of them to iaa,tvo
a country that thev are supposed to
rule, and become the citizens of a
kingdom.

lul.    Issue after issue it pointed out
le* wealth   of    the rich agricultural
'ition of which llirtlo is the centre,
itiu   enlarged    on    the   success that
mailed those who properly tilled its
fertile soil,    llut it was of but small
avail.   The number of settlers steadl-
h decreased, as it did in many other
parts of tho Wost nt  the time.   This
ti no sense remarkable   when   the
nditlons are  known.     The   original
nl.is of the district came in with
nl.' or no means.   As so«n as they
ml performed their homestead duties

apitnl  wero  able  to  make   a    fresh
start  on a   larger and  more success-
il scale.    While  the  individual    settler so doing was benefited by this,
it  is obvious  that the district must
suller thereby,  nnd  in fact the country   around   Birtle   was,   for some
years  dotted   with  idle  farms  owned

doch always wants to see all sides
of a question beforo coming to conclusions. Naturally, therefore, he
seldom makes up his mind as to policies hurriedly. As is eqpally natural,
too, his mind once made up, he seldom has occasion to chartgO his opinion. It is this finality and fairness
in his arguments and reasonings that
mako his published opinions so
weighty. Few editorial expressions
carry so far as those of the Hartney

in the thoughtful personality whose

of n local paper, it is a refreshment
to pick up thi* Star, and road therein somo little article on tho coining
of thc wild goose, thu habits of tbe
muskrat, the blooming of the nne-
nione, or a description of some rare
and beautiful mirage. Few among
the busy workers in tho West tuke tho
necessary timo to familiarize themselves with nature. Tho fact that one,
of the western editors gives frequently the results of Iiis own communion
with the various forms of nature is,
therefore, all the more appreciated.
.Many of his subscribers would doubtless notice tho omission cf Bone item

(rom week to* week look for the Hartney Star as one of the few exchanges
for whose arrival thoy look with
eagerness, tho little nature talks
that from time to time appear are
always the first things sought for.
Whatever modifications muy from
time to timo be made in the Star,
they hope this will remain a permanent feature.
Mr. Walpole Murdoch stands for
and represents much of the very best
in western journalism. His high personal principle in both private and
public life, his keen observation, his
fairness in discussion, his breadth of
view and .judicial temperament, to
gether with his industry and pro-
gressivoness, make him a mun of
mark in his profession, The ranks of
newspaper men In the West would be
bettered if more men of Mr. Murdoch's type were found therein.

BUYING CANABIAN WHEAT.
A despatch from Detroit says that
scarcity of wheat in that part of tho
country is emphasized by two purchases made by the Commercial Milling Company, which has bought fifty
thousand bushels of Manitoba wheat
that will go to Detroit in bond and
in the port of Detroit pay a duty of
20 cents a bushel. The wheat is of
very fine quality, being better for
flour making purposes than No. 1
northern. Another company has
bought a smaller quantity of Pacific
coast wheat to go to Detroit by rail
at a freight rate of about the same
per bushel as tho duty on Canadian
wheat. This expensive wheat is taken
across the border because of tho failure of the Michigan crop. This year's
crop figured about 5,000,000 bushels,
but probably not more than throe
million bushels is a good milling
grain raise. Elevator stocks in Detroit at present consist almost entirely of northwest wheat.

It may be weakness of the muscles
or weakness of the nerves, weak action of the heart or feebleness of the
organs of digestion, weakness of the
liver, kidneys and bowels or weakness and irregularities of tho organs
peculiarly feminine.
WHEREVER LOCATED WEAKNESS IS DUE TO POOR, WEAK

BY THE USE OP DR. CHASE'S
NERVE FOOD.
Because digestion is Impaired or
the heart action irregular you have
no reason to suppose theso organs
are diseased ln themselves. They
merely lack tho nervo force which ls
in reality the motive power of the
body and its organs.
A few weeks' treatment with Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food will convince you
of its exceptional blood-forming and
nerve-invigorating power, and by
noting your increase in weight while
using it you can provo that new, -firm
flesh and tissue is being added to the
body.
Mrs. J. B. Tardiff, Mariapolis,
Man., writesj "When I began the use
of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food my health
was in a terribly bad condition. My,
doctor told me that I was going into consumption, and for nearly three
years my bowels' were so loose and
watery that I was continually kept
weak and run down. In spite of the
many remedies used I gradually grew
worse and worse. I could scarcely;
got about the house and suffered a
great deal from backache, stomach
and kidney troubles.
"Dr. Chase's Jierve Food proved to
hp exactly what I needed and by keeping up this treatment for a time I
not so strong and well that I did (my
own housework, and sometimes
worked in the fields without feeling
any the worso fqr lt. It is a plea-

Representative Conservatives met

a memorial to Hon. Mr. Borden, asking him to retain the leadership of the
party.   He will accept.
The West Hastings political scandal i.s expanding and it threatens to
involve the whole fabric of government rule in Ontario. Already two
politicalacandidates are fugitives from
justice and several other interested
parties are making themselves scarce.
•TJie western lumbermen will ask
the dominion government to impose a
duty of $2 per thousand on lumber
comingin from the States. In their
..request they will receive the support
of "Big Bill" Galliher, who, in an interview on tho coast, stated a depression existed in the interior aud a duty
should be imposed to protect the lum-
;bering industry. Force to the argument is lent by the closing down of
almost all the sawmills.
Reciprocity with Canada—with a
general tendency towards annexation
—is a question of growing importance
alining American public men, and the
sunjeet is beiug extensively canvassed
in/the press. Time was' when Cana-
jdjps public life was more or less agitated by the question.but Washington
authorities proved by no means favor-
fable. Now the shoe is on the other
• foot, for Canada's growth is exciting
envy among the people to the south,
and they would fain have closer trade
relations with their vigorous young
neighbor. No longer is there a sentiment in Canada towards any other relation with the United States than at
present exists. Canadians are taking
pride in their country and,9. healthful
national spirit has been born. Canada
is developing as a nation, occupying a
prominent position among those several peoples going to make up the
mighty British empire. Canadian
public men have plainly told American audiences of late that the dominion means to carve out its own destiny
quite independent of the States, and
the Americans should accept those
statements as indicative of popular
feeling here. Neither reciprocity nor
annexation are wanted.
Slocau will have a hard job to find
a codncii for the coming year, and
those men who, perhaps,may be found
willing to undertake the government
.of the city will find their work cut out
to successfully finance the burg's obligations. The tax sale did not turn
out as successful as anticipated, and
the bulk of tbe back taxes due tlie
city still remain unpaid. Tha costs
aud incidentals of the salo were somewhat heavy aud these, for the time
being at least, must be met from the
general revenue, eventually being
taxed up against the delinquent lots.
These expenses will be a direct charge
upon the city of upwards of $20U0,and
following closely after will come the
debenture payment of $1000. In addition will be the heavy strain from
the school, ai)d a limited allowance
for generalities and salaries. The rev*
jentie in sight is principally from the
seven hotels, some, of which may at
any time drop out; then comes a lessened number of traders' licenses, and
about a third of the realty taxes. Fortunately the salary list has been cut
to a mere bagatelle, while the general
expenses, with luck, should be small.
The margin for allowance, however, is
•decidedly limited and great care must
be exercised. To thoso men upon
whose shoulders the responsibility of
government may rest, the ratepayers
should accord their heartiest sympathy aud support. They will have a
hard task to steer the civic ship clear
of the rocks of bankruptcy, and the
people should be patient, lending assistance rather than seeking to condemn.
