Last Friday cvwning a final meeting; of tli« citizens was held in tlie
Oddfi'llows' hall, for thc winding up
of affairs in connection with the incorporation ofthe town. A big crowd
was present, most of the audience
fully expecting to see a pretty warm
time, but the proceedings passed ofl'
quietly, thc meeting adjourning at
W. D. McGregor, permanent chairman, presided, and J. T. Beauchesne
acted as secretary. The first item
was the reading of tlie report of the
Incorporation committee, by A.York,
its chairman. With it was read the
special bill of incorporation secured
from the legislature, followed by a
few explanations. Tlie general stat
utea on incorporation called for a petition embodying at least 50 percent
of the land values within the limits of
the area sought to be incorporated.
Owing to the opposition encountered
from the. chief landowner of the town
and the absence of many smaller
o'vners, this was iniptssible, so recourse was had to a special bill, which
the legislature had granted. Judge
Harrison and John Foley criticized
the bill of incorporation, and maintained that the clause relating to voters paying $6 per month rental
would disqualify many persons. Both
speakers maintained the clause was I t|iat camp,
unnecessary and their remarks ware
applauded. Explanations followed

grade to $13 in the first, while high
schools get (i bonus of $300 to each

sites in cities may be donated to the
municipalities and reckoned as a
civic asset. Owing, however, to the
exceptional powers given trustea
boards, the bill is meeting with considerable opposition, and it will have
to be greatly amended ere it can pass
through the house and become law.

Bad roads have broken up the

have to be made at the lower ends of
the roads. Only 40 tons of ore was
sent out, that amount being from the

is being taken out of the mine, ensuring shipments throughout the
spring and summer. Work is being
prosecuted on a number of other
properties, but shipments will be
limited for some time to come.

A Woman Who Bid Not Know the J \
Strength of Her Love.
"What would we live on, Max?" laughed Sydney Vernon, glancing down at her
elegant morning dress, with the pretty
slipper just peeping from beneath iti
hem. "It's all very well to eschew the
practicabilities of life, but they are somewhat necessary, for all that, and I have
never seen any great evidence of economy on your part, and I am quite sure
you have not on mine."
Max Bayard tugged impatiently at his
mustache as the girl whom a moment
before he had asked to be his wife thus
answered him.
He had known her long enough to
learn to love her with all the strength of
his great heart, to worship her beauty,
to follow her constantly with his eyes,
knowing but one wish, one hope, that she
might be his.
And she fancied, not altogether wrongly, that his love bad met some return.
Her eyes had brightened at his coming,
her voice had learned to welcome him,
until he felt he must end suspense and
gain some assurance; the more so that a
Mr. Clayton had lately come upon the
scene, a rich and childless widower, who
evidently looked with favor upon the
belle of the watering place and whom
her aunt, under whose care she was, if
not the young lady herself, looked upon
with favor in return.
"I have never had an incentive to economy," Max said in answer. "I have
enough to live on and feed my horses,
though my tailor's bill does trouble me
now and then, I confess; but, Sydney, I
will change all that, dear. I can't perhaps give you all the luxuries to which
you are accustomed, but you shall not
lack for comforts, that I promise you."
"We should be miserable, Max, miserable, both you and I," the girl answered
bitterly. "We have not cither of us been
reared in a school of poverty. I would
cry for cake, while you could only give
me bread, and you for nie, while I could
give you only kisses. Come, be sensible,
and let us be good friends."
"Friends? Never!" he exclaimed. "I
am starving, and you throw me a stone.
Look into my eyes, Sydney, straight and
true, and say you do not love me, and 1
will go away and trouble you no more."
The long lashes drooped low on her
"I cannot quite say that," she answered, "but I will say more. 1 promised last night to become Mr. Clayton's
wifo within six months."
Max Bayard's handsome face grew
white to the very lips. A look of deadly
anger, mingled with something like loathing, crept into it. Sydney shrank from it
as from a blow.
"Don't, Max, don't!" she cried. "I
couldn't help it.   I am very sorry."
"You could not help It! You are very
sorry!" he repeated very slowly. "Could
not help what? Toying with me for your
amusement—playing fast and loose with
your victim or selling yourself to the
highest bidder? Which? You are very
■orry for whom? For the man you led
With these words he turned and left
her sitting on the sausls, the ocean making ita low moan nt her feet.
"Oh, if it would come on and on and
swallow me up!" she wailed in echo. "1
love him, I love him! Max, you nre
right; the man I propose to marry does
deserve the pity. But you—ob, my love,
you might have spared me your bate! I
did It for tbe Jiest—I did it for the best."
• ••••••
Six years bad passed—six years fraught
Indeed with change.
"If she had been but true to herself
and me," Max Bayurd had thought when
but a few months after the event which
had driven liitn from his native land to
find fiir»,'etfulness in travel a letter had
been put into his hand which had followed liiiu from port to port, announcing
that ho hud fallen heir to a fortune which
might have challenged Mr. Clayton's ia
Its magnitude.
"If only she had trusted me," he said
bitterly again and again In the lonely
hours of the night, despising himself that
he could not learn to hute her.
A year afterward he married. Ills wife
was very young ami very lovely, but there
were depths in his nature thut her hand
never stirred, and even ns she lay with
ber bead pillowed on his breast another
haunting face would come between and
mid the caressing murmur of her words
would sound Ihe echo of thc "might hsve
But he loved her very dearly aud
mourned ber very truly when, one short
year after their marriage, he laid her
away in her grave and took up the burden of life again, with thc added responsibility of the tiny infant daughter she
had left him.
"Wanted.—A lady to superintend the

It wns In answer to this advertUameat
thnt, six years after that memorable afternoon upon the beach, a lady stood
waiting in the elegant drawing room of
the house to which she had been directed.
Her veil was down, nnd the room wus
half in shadow from the heavy curtains
which draped the window, but for all
that she started when a step crossed the
hall and a gentleman, his hair slightly
tinged with gray, entered.
She had sunk back on the sofa, and her
frame quivered with emotion.
"You have come, madam, in answer to
my advertisement?" he asked cautiously.
"No, no!" she answered. "There are
reasons why it will now be impossible for
me to accept the situation offered."
That voice! Had it not too long haunted him to be thus easily forgotten?
Would he not know it, even though it
sounded above his very grave?
"Sydney! you here?" he exclaimed.
"Ah, Mrs. Clayton—pardon me; for the
moment I forgot."
Then she threw back her veil. Six
years had made little change. It was the
same beautiful face, but grown very
pale, and the lovely month quivered as
she spoke.
"Believe me, I would not have intruded
myself upon you hud 1 dreamed it wns
you who had inserted the advertisement.
I had not even heard of your marriage."
"My wife is dead," he answered. "But

It happens that you are in necessity. Is
Mr. Clayton dead?"
She shuddered.
"Yon mistake," she said. "I did not

"No. It is n woman's privilege, you

"And you will not learn to love my little motherless child?" he asked. "Accept
this position, I beg of you. Miss Vernon.
It is only that you should see she is not
left to the mercy of nurses und that she
has some retining care."
So it wns at last decided, and Sydney
found the old emptiness of life fled since
her heart and hands were full.
She rarely saw the master of the
house. One day when she had entered
on some errand into his study she had
seen hanging over bis desk tbe fair, pictured face of Mabel's mother.
"How soon he learned to love again,"
she thought. "And I—I whom he so
cruelly condemned—threw aside ambition and wealth for the idol I could never grasp."
But one evening Mabel stole to the
side of the lovely lady who had won all
her loyal little heart.
"Papa is ill," she said. "Did yon know
it. Miss Sydney? Won't you go nurs*
him like you do me when me is ill?"
"Certainly, darling, if I can do anything."
And with trembling steps she descended the stairs and entered his room.
For hours she sat beside him, changing
the cooling bandages upon his brow aud
fanning his fevered cheeks.
Mabel had conic softly in for her good
night kiss; then he had fallen asleep,
and she hnd fenrcd to stir, as she might
waken him.

resting upon her.
"You have no right to nsk me," she

"No right perhaps—that I admit, but
answer mc nil the same. For the sake
of all these starving years let me know
the truth."
"Because I did not love him," she answered; then—"becuuse I found myself
weaker than I knew."
"Oh, Sydney, if we had known—if we
hnd known! My darling, was there another reason? Was it because you loved

In that mnment she knew herself empress of his heart all these years, and

One day at the Kremlin in Moscow
Miss Hnpgoiid, un American lady, was
favored with an amusing manifestation
of the all pervading intliieucc in Itussian
life of "official" rank.
While looking ut objects of interest
she noticed u large, handsomely bound
book flanked by pen and ink on a side
table. As she opened the book an attendant pounced upon ber.
"Don't touch that!" he said peremptorily.
"Why not? If you do not wish people
to look at this collection of ancient documents—I suppose that is what It is—you
■hould lock it up or label it, 'Hands off!' "
retorted the annoyed lady.
"It isn't ancient documents, and you
are not to touch it," he said, taking the
book out of ber bands. "It Is strictly reserved for the signatures of distinguished
visitors—crowned hends, royal princes,
embassadors ami the like."
"Then it does not interest me in the
least, and if you would label it to thnt
effect no one would cure to disturb it,"
answered the American woman.
Soon after ehe wns joined by one of
the powerful officials of the Kremlin
who hnd made an appointment to show
the American ludy about. As she went
from one object to another with the official the attendants hovered respectfully
In the rear, evidently impressed with the
frieudly lone of the conversation. When
the round had been made and the oflicinl
had departed to his duties, thc guardian
of the autograph nllittm invited her to
add her "Illustrious" name to tbe list.
She refused, he entreated aud at last
fairly dragged her to tlie table and stood
guard over her while she wrote her name.

Mr. Dwlght Its'giisi In the Service or the
Montreal Telegraph, t'ouipitny ill 1SIT,
and lias Grown to lit* the President
and General Miinugei- of the Great
Northwestern Telegraph Company—
—Has Served the Country.
Mr. H. P-. Dwlght was born of
New England parentage at Belleville, Jefferson County, New York,
Pec. 28, 1828. IHs entered the service of the Montreal Telegraph Company in tho year of its inception—
1817—and was lirst stationed at
Belleville, anil afterwards at Montreal, where he remained until 1850.
He was then removed to Toronto,
and a few years Inter wns appointed
General Western Superintendent of the
company, in which capacity extensions were projected and carried out
under his direction throughout the
whole of Western Ontario,
In the year 1881 an amalgamation
of telegraph interests in the Dominion was brought about, and the lines
of the Montreal and Dominion Companies merged under the charter of
the Great Northwestern Telegraph
Company. Mr. Dwight. received the
appointment of General Manager of
the combined system, and a few
years later was also appointed Vice-
President of the company, In the
year 1893 be was elected President
of the company, since which time he
has filled the dual ollice of President
and General Manager. The Great
Northwestern Telegraph Company operates 40,000 miles of wire, and
maintains in the neighborhood of 2,-
000 offices, extending throughout the
Provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New
Brunswick and Manitoba, as well as
a portion of the northern part of
New Vork State. The efficiency and
extent of the Canadian Telegraph
service to-Muy is largely attributed
to Mr. Owight's energy und enterprise, unit he has long enjoyed the
sobriquet of "the Father of Canadian
On many occasions Mr. Dwight
lias rendered services of the utuiost
importance to the Government of the
country. During the Fenian ltaid
lhe distribution sif operators along
the various frontiers where trouble
existed or was threatened was placed in his hands, and Isy this means
the Government were in a position
to act with a knowledge and promptitude which would otherwise have
been totally lacking. During the
Northwest rebellion in 1885 he also
rendered signal service to the Government along similar lines, his services iu this connection having been
publicly acknowledged in Parliament
by the .Minister of Militia.
Aside from his connection with
tlie telegraph service, Mr. Dwight at
the present time is Vice-President of
the t.'aiiadiun General Electric Company, President of the Birkbeek Investment, Security and Savings Company, and a director of the Toronto
and London Electric Eight Companies. Mr. Dwight has always taken an active interest in civic government, and has identified himself with
every progressive movement in this
direction, llu was one of the pioneer promoters of electric lighting in
Toronto. The telephone also, in its
early and experimental duys, hnd tho
benefit of his wide electrical knowledge, nnd the lirst telephonic wire
ever tiled in thnt city was constructed Iml ween his private residence and

Street Nes-dletvossien.
If it is a novelty it must sometimes be
a convenience to be able to have one's
garments mended on the street while one
waits. In nearly nil the p-nciptil cities
of China native sewing women are to be
seen seated ou low stools or perhaps on
the sidewalk mending articles of mnscu-
line wearing apparel.
The accomplishments of these street
seamstresses are somewhat limited, their
efforts with the needle being confined, ns
a rule, to "running." Other brunches of
needlework nre practically unknown to
them. As a consequence, their efforts lire
better appreciated by natives than by
Americun or English travelers.
They nre never short of patrons among
the Chinese tradesmen, for these are
often natives of other districts and. having come to the city to engage iu business, have no one to mend a rent for
them. Their wives bciug left at home,
they are glad to employ the street needlewomen. For this class of customers tbe
skill of the itiuerant sewing woman answers every purpose.
The Ledger Monthly has a good word
fo Say for these Chinese sewing women.
As a rule, they bear nu excellent reputation. They nre usually the wiviss of boatmen and laborers who live in the houseboats which line the creeks, nnd their
needles are a great help in solving thu

Sumner's Lack of Humor.
Charles Sumner iu most matters was
quick enough of apprehension, yet even
he lac'ted the sense of humor. It is snid
that one day after tidings had arrived
from Washington of lhe suicide of I'rov-
ost I'aradol, the brilliant French embassador, Sumuer was giving his theories ns
to the cause of the act when Lowell asked, "Did you see the embassador often
hefore bis death?"
"Yes," was the reply; "I saw him every day."
"Did you converse with him in English
or in French ?"
"Ob, I talked noihing but French."
"Gentlemen," said Lowell, "we do not
need to seek ouy further reason for bis
death. This fully explains the suicide."
The explosion which followed, we are
told, Sumner was never able to understand.
To a friend who hnd expressed his sympathy for Sumner when taken III he replied, "I am not afraid to die, for I have

"The only real knockout blow that I
ever saw delivered," said a g< \ ?i- .lent
Officer, "wus on a passenger train traveling through the mountainous section of
Kentucky a few years ago. You-know
those Kentucky mountain people are
bard propositions when they get filled
with their favorite product, and they are
naturally disposed to make trouble at
any old time. I was oo the train one
morning when a strapping Hoosier came
in. He was londed down to the gunnels
nnd was flourishing a bowie knife and
threatening to kill every man on board.
Nobody seemed willing to stop him, and
he weDt through the car cursing and
swearing and with hig knife always
raised. There wns an Innocent looking
little fat fellow burled behind a newspaper. He was pretending to read, but
he was shaking with terror. The tough
sport saw him. 'Don't you try to read
while I am lalkingl' he shouted, and
with thnt he ripped the newspaper into
shreds with his bowie knife. The little
mnn tossed off a couple of fits, and then
the fighter went for another victim.
"A wiry little chap was standing in the
front door, and the mountaineer made a
break for him. Just as he raised his knife
in his drunken effort to rip out the pool
man's heart the latter had the presence
of mind to protect himself. 'Look behind
you there, quick 1' shouted the little chap
and quick ns a flash the mountaineer
turned, thinking to see an enemy. As he
turned, the wiry chap pasted that tough
right on Ihe point of the jaw. He hit with
his fist, but the blow was true, and the
big fellow went to the bottom of the car
in a heap. The blow upset him. He
quivered nnd squirmed like a dying hog,
nud the knife fell from his twitching
fingers.   He was not able to rise.
"Just nbout this time the short, fat
sport whose paper he had ripped to
pieces came flying to tho scene. Without
a word he jumped on the mountaineer
and pounded him in the fnce with bis
shoes. He kickesl nnd cuffed him until
the blood spouted. He was the brnvest
mnn I ever saw, although a moment"be-
fore he was scared to death. Finally we

regaiued consciousness he sneaked to another car without stopping to get hi*
"We passed a station nbont this time,
and when the train started again two big.
rough looking people dashed into the car
with tho same bloody bowie kuive*. 'Who
hit my brother? Who hit my brother?'
'The man who hit your brother got off nt
that station,' said the little chap who had
landed the knoeknut blow, nnd after a
lot of cursing the two toughs went from
the car. They joined the defeated tough,
but that individual was so well licked
that he kept his mouth shut and never
sont his brothers back to start more trouble. It was a thrilling moment on the
train, and every passenger went up and
shook hands with the wiry chap, although
we did not give many glnd hnnds to the
little fat fellow who got brave only when

"A funny thing," says the Kennebec
(Me.) Journal, "happened in the amusement hall nt the insane hospital one even*
ing during a minstrel entertainment. Oue
of thc soloists hnd just sung a song, to
which he received n generous encore. In
responding he stepped to the front of the
stage and suid, 'I will now sing you thut
beautiful song entitled "The Lost Sheep
on the Mountain."'
"The prelude was played and the singer
had just straightened up and inflated his
lungs as If to begin when one of the female patients in the audience jumped to
her feet and shouted in a shrill voice:
'Ha-a-ii-uh! There, I got ahead of ye
that time, didn't I?'
"And she had, for 'Ba-a-a-ahT was just
what the singer was going to say had
she given him a chance.

known, but in thus stealing it from the
singer's own lips Bhe so effectually 'queered' that individual that further efforts
on his part were useless, and all he could
do was to say Thank you!' and sit

There are thousands of young; girls
throughout Canada who owe their
good health, if not life itself, to the
timely use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale Teople. Among these is Miss
Maud Patterson, whose home is in
the vicinity of Strathroy, Ont. To a
reporter who interviewed her. Miss
Patterson said : "Several years ago
I bogan to suffer from headaches,was
easily tired out, and could see that
my health was not what it had been.
At first I did not think there was
anything serious the matter, and
thought tho trout*lo would pass away.
In this, however, I was mistaken,
for as time went on I became weaker. The headaches attacked me more
frequently, my appetite failed. If 1
stooped I would grow so dizzy that
I would almost fall over. I became
very pale, and always felt tired and
worn out. I was advised to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, and 1 have reason to rejoice that I followed the advice, and as I continued their use, it
seemed as though duy by day they
were imparting now life/ to me. My
appetite improved, the headaches disappeared, the palor left, my face, the
dizziness that bothered me so much
also disapps'ared, and I felt altogether like a differs*nt person. I feel that
I owe my renewed health entirely to
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and as I
know that there are many girls who
suffer as I did I would urge them to
lose no time in giving this medicine
a fair trial."
The case of Miss Patterson certainly carries with it a lesson to others
who may be pale, languid, easily
tirs*d, or subject to headaches, or
the other distressing symptoms that
mark the onward progress of anas>
mia In cases of this kind Dr. Williams' Tink Pills will give more certain and speedy results than any
other medicine. They> act promptly
und directly, making new, rich red.
blood, and strengthen the nerves,
and correct all the irregularities incident, to this critical period.

■death rates for Ontario for the year
1899 were published, a howl of alarm
was raised that the race was dying
out, because of the diminished natural growth. Passionate appeals
were made to the inhabitants to avert
i the threatened extinction, and right
jiobly did they respond. The figures
.for 1900 show 46,019 births, 17,123
marriages and 29,594 deaths. The
Canucks have ever proved themselves
equal to any emergency.
Incorporation is an accomplished
-fact and Slocan is numbered among
the cities of British Columbia. It has
taken a vast amount of labor and
much time on the part of the committee in charge, who realized from
the outset that they were engaged on
a thankless job. But they persevered
despite the multitude of obstacles encountered, and they feel that they
have done their duty by their fellow-
citizens. That some criticism would
result was only natural, but the
faults exposed are infinitesimal in
.comparison to the advantages gained.
•Criticism should be tempered with
Justice. To R. F. Green, M.L.A.,the
committee owe much,as his influence
was a great factor in overcoming the
opposition raised against the bill by
outside property owners. He, and
his fellow-members in the house who
supported his efforts, have the thanks
ofthe community at large. Slocan

Slocan has thrust aside her swaddling clothes and has become an
-organized community. The burdens

serious The choice of a mayor and
six aldermen is to be made in a little
while, and it behooves the citizens to
think deeply, ponder well, and
choose wisely for fit men to fill these
-exalted positions. Much of the fut
ure progress and prosperity of the
city will depend upon the actions ol
the first council, and the men elected
should be ef the strongest and best of
the citizens. From the outset rigid
economy must be practiced and every
care taken to preserve nil tho utilities ofthe city for its citizuis. The
•experiences of other burgs in munici
pal government sliould be taken as a
guide and doubtful legisl tion avoid
