There has been lit tie of a sensational
nature in jthe bouse thia .last week. The
routine nnil other business of the session have been steadily advancediwiib
no hindrance save the obstructive tactics of the Opposition, who have with
j ni i rjjtfititxet.fi contrived to delay the
nomittj s business without advancing
their own eiids, and to expose their
own weakness without inflicting injury
upon their opponents, The government maintains its steady majority of
five and --ix, and the mental calibre, of
tin* present opposition is not of a character to enable them to present any
arguments that can alter the existing
condition of affairs.
The Game Act has probably beeh
the most discussed measure on the
floor of the house this last week.
Every man likes to consider himself a
sportsrnan'evon if he isn't (ine: and
tlie consequence lias been that nearly
every member of the house has had
something to say in regard to this important measure. The bill was in
committee of the whole on Thursday,
and was put iu pretty satisfactory
shape when the house reported progress. It is a very distinct improvement on former legislation.
The Dvkiug Act, debate on the second reading of which was adjourned
on Friday, olfers a fair solution of a
very important quostion. Naturally,
tiere is considerable rivalry among
the area- affected,and au attempt will
doubtless be mad.' to make political
capital out of the matter, but the bill
is a fair an 1 equitable measure notwithstanding.
in the iliocussion over the bill to
amend the unrepi uied sections of the
provisions of the Assessment Act, Ji
A.Maedonald.leader of the opposition,
to >k occasion to place himself in a
very unhappy fight before tbe house,
Ho accused the government of bring*

tbe manager of that company, denying tlial the coinpauj was indebted to
the government. He theu road Ihe
despatch, and proceeded to argue tbe
matter iu a manner which verystrong
ly suggested counsel for thedefence.
Tho finance minister, with a eou-
temptuous brevity that cut like n
knife, raid that thostntemenl contained in the telegram was nut. true, and
thai the sender thereof must have
known it.
Thr premier, afler Dually disposing
of Mr. olacdouald's friend's telegram
by pointing out that the amount of
taxati in as clnimed by the province
had been admitted by counsel of cither
side when the case was under review,
proceeded to read tbe leader ofthe
opposition a severe lecture on the peculiar line of tadics he had adopted,
iii.-* remnrks, though harsh, wer.' more
than justified, as tbis is the second
time this sessi in thai Mr. Maedonald

With further reference to the railway matt irs uow under consideration
iy the government, alluded to in last
week's letter, il is worthy of note its
.llnstrating the oni rous nature of the
task devolving upon Mr. McBride nud
his colleagues iu selectiug tlie most

worthless oscepl to their promoters.
Now, ii must be abundantly clear to
every thinking man. with the smallest
appreciation of thestmitened financial
njreumstancea of the province, thai it
is not poS3ible,at the present time and
nnder the present conditions.to launch
out into a policy of largo expi nditure,
such as would be involved In an at-
tempt to (hai with all of even the
meritorious nmong these propositions.
The object, therefore, that the gov
eminent   hail   in   viow, the problem
that thoy havo to solve, Is lo secure

as theso is the long suffering Similkameen; and it is a satisfaction to beable
to say Unit, out of some two or three
railway projects which are now finally
to be accepted by the government.onfc
at least looks to the prompt opening
up of this much neglected section of
the province. This is definitely known
by those who are in close touch with
the government plans for railway development, as far as at present matured. The govern ment is satisfied, in
spite of tho difficulties referred to.
that, before the closo of the present
session,it will lie in a position to bring
down legislation which,while ultimately leading to the closer connection of
thi; coast and the Kootenays, will cn-
sure the commencement of immediate
construction on much-needed lines in
the interior, upon terms in every way
satisfactory to the country at large.
Mr. Morse, vice president and general manager of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway, accompanied by his
followers, left Victoria last Friday foi
the east. Their departure was with
out ostentation and, it may be added
without regret, at least on the part of
the government. Before leaving Mr.
.Morse marie a definite statement, once
to the press aud once to the board of
trade, to the effect that a proposition
had been made by his company to the
provincial government, but had not
been accepted; and that, therefore,
failing the desired provincial induce-
. i-'iits to commence construction work
ai this end, simultaneously with other
points, the company would adhere to
their original plan and build tbe line
from the east westward.
In discussing the affair there is one
closing word. Had Air. Morse's pro
position to thu government been of ii
business like character, such as could
bave been fairly entertained by the
faithful representatives of the people,
a .satisfactory arrangement might have
been entered into. i>u! the nature of
bis proposition waa so altogether out
if proportion that no sijlf-respecting
government could entertaio it.
It is not yet known what explanations Senator Templeman will offer to
tbe poople of British C ilumbirt.
Consideration in committee of tht
Assussuieut Act and of tbe Dyking
Assessment Act took up tbo wbole ol

There appears to be plenty of work

XK1V SCHOOL ACT.
tlmaj Important AuiaYndmeiittlfAvaJSsra

NEW STRIKE AT OTTAWA.
six Im.lie* of Shipping Oro Kneonntered
on the Noble Vol,,.
The existence of another important
ore chute was demoustfabxl* on Sunday at the Ottawa, when si.** inches of
high grade was encountered on the
west vein, now known as tho Noble
vein. Por some time past work has
been carried on in a surface crosscut
run to eatch tho Noblo vein from lho
gulch, the vein being finally met with
on Sunday.
The crosscut is in about 150 feet,
catch in <,- tho vein iit 100 feot depth. It
is (10 feet below what i.s known as the
old Kfilly tunnel, that work being
'one bv a former bonder and at a time
when the existence of the two veins
was unsuspected. At the point of intersection by tbe old Keilly tunnel,the
vein disclosed shipping ore, which has
widened at the new crosscut. The
vein Carrie's much quartz mixed with
ore. apart from tlie shipping streak.
Tho No. S drift on the Ottawa has a
crosscut to the Noble vein, and Manager McPhee announces that the lead
will lx* drifted on at that point and a
raise made to connect with the new
strike. When connected the ore will,
lie bandied from the No. S opening.
The new strike adds materially to'the
value of tlie mine, two parallel ore
chutes being now proven. When the
east and west vein bodies are opened
up it will givo the mino a large ton-
nago of shipping ore, affording em-
p! lyment to a greatly increased force
of mon.
On Wednesday an assay was made
on ore from the new strike, when the
astonishing returns of 850 oz wero obtained. T«o streaks in the bottom of
the tunnrd have merged into one, giving a foot of shipping ore*. Tt is the
richr*' stuff' yot found on the Noble
vein.
Many important amendments have
been introduced to the new provincial
school act and will doubtless be adopted. The school vear is to close December .'il i;; ;. ad of JTuno 30; clergymen are not eligible for ti ustoes; present trustees hold  ollice only till next

The Man and
the Hour
By   KEITH    GORDON
Copyright, 1904, by Frances Wilson
Elinor for the first time ln ber life
was looking the future squarely ln tbe
eye. Hitherto sbe had been content to
nibble at life, munching away contentedly enough, satisfied -with tbe joy of
tha moment And sbe might have gone
on so for sn Indefinite time had lt not
been for ths occurrence of the 3d of
June.
New Tear's day ls significant only
because then, by common consent,
time moves up a number. This particular June 8 made an Indelible impression on Elinor's mind because on tbat
day sbs began to be thirty-two—began
at tbe very beginning, of course, but
etlll she began.
"I shall say I'm thirty-one all this
year anyway," sbe announced defiantly to that other self that receives our
dearest confidences. "It's sucb bad
form to say you're thirty-one years and
two months old, or whatever lt may
happen to be. And If I bave to write lt
I'll make lt thirty-one ln round numbers—not even thirty-one plus." All of
which, as tbe reader can see, was very
unscrupulous.
However, as she found, by far the
worst thing about beginning to be thirty-two was the fact that you Couldn't
forget lt The harder you tried the better you remembered it.
i   "Well, what if lam?"
This was the remark tbat our heroine
■lung Into space wben, after a week of
torment she sat down with her chin
resting on ber hands to have tbe tblng
out "What if I am? So are plenty of
other gir—women, I mean. Alice ls
thirty, Mary thirty-one, Mabel twenty-
eight"
She paused In ber enumeration, struck
by the thought that all these friends
Were married. Matrimony was a subject to which sho bad given the minimum of thought Sbe supposed she'd
come to lt some time, but she was ln
no hurry to enter that narrow pasture
bo long as tbere was pleasant browsing
to be hnd outside.
When she had thought of lt at all lt
had seemed to mean chiefly a tiresome
round of housekeeping that resulted ln
three perpendicular lines Just over the
nose, a memorandum of worry that she
secretly determined to avoid as long ss
possible. But now that sbe was beginning to be thirty-two the thing was
different.
, Gould lt be, sbe asked herself, tbat
■he had made a mistake after all and
that those three incisive lines were as
much of an honor as an officer's bars?
Could it be that there was a point
when one began to be thirty-two—for
instance, when becomlngnesB demanded that one should lay aside "Miss"
Just as lt required tbat one should
■top wearing pink?
She faced her plight with a stiff upper Up, realizing that she bad no one
but herself to blame. There bad been
a number of men—the mischievous dimple at the corner of her mouth danced
into sight for a second at tbe thought
of how many—who had done their best
to stop ber in what she now recognized
for the first time her mad career. She
had declined their offers kindly, but
with a certain royal carelessness that
recked not of possible dark hours to
come. Wben did any woman born to
the belief ln the divine right of queens
ever foresee dethronement?
She had Inadvertently "lived over,"
as Bhe had once beard lt quaintly
phrased. There was no doubt about it,
she was an old maid! She repeated lt
aloud ln all Its brutal trutb, scorning
sucb euphemisms as "spinster" and
"bachelor woman."
"You're an old maid—just a plain old
maid!" she said audibly. But it sounded like a joke—like one of those things
too bad to be true. She would probably wake up after a $lt to find that she
bad been married since her eighteenth
year and had a son ready to cuter college nnd a daughter about to mako her
debut
No such happy awakening came,
however, and with desperate philosophy she decided that si not* she was
nn old maid she would enter into the
role for all lt was worth. At least
she would avoid tbe error of being
kittenish.
Little by little her plainest gowns
wero brought Into requisition. Certain
little graces and frivolities ot the toilet
were ono by one abandoned. She timidly asked Alice, her closest friend, to
teach the children to call her "auntie,"
a thing whicb she hnd hitherto forbidden under the penalty of a sudden
denth to the cherub that should tlrst
be guilty of lt.
"What ls the matter with you?" gasped Alice, with a stare of amazement
"And what have you been doing with
your hair, nnd why are you wearing
that ugly old dress, with all the handsome things that you have?"
"I'm just wearing tbe tilings suitable to my uge before tbe dear friends
have a chance to point them out to
me," was tbe answer, and that night
her friend confided to her husband,
with thoughtful regret, that Elinor wus
becoming a regular old maid.
Another of her friends and comrades,
Max Anderson, also noticed the subtle
•change. Theirs had been a sort of
brother and sister friendship of long
.standing. For yenrs he hod scolded
and criticised nnd bullied her. The
one thing thnt he hndn't done wns to
make love, and I'll nor had long since
given up trying to make hlm.
"Haven't you over been ln love,
Mnx?" sho hnd nsked hlm once, with
genuine curiosity lu the grny eyes that
had  been more  thu>*  imo  man's  un*
doing.   A dull flush enme up Into his
face, and be looked nt her strangely.
"Yes," he answered shortly, "I have."
"Beautiful night, isn't lt?" he went
on after a moment and there was a
touch of mockery in his voice that
made tbe questlouer wince. After that
she asked bim no more.
"What's up?" he demanded, surveying her cynically as she came dowa
to receive hlm one evening, with renunciation speaking from every line
of ber plain gown and her smooth,
parted hair. "Is it some sort of lay
sackcloth and ashes? What particular
sin are you mourning?"
"Tbe great sin of omission!" she answered demurely as they sat down opposite each other. But he looked incredulous. He had not known her fifteen years for nothing.
"Commission, you mean," be said
dryly, with an air of remembering
things.
"No; omission! I'd tell you about it
only you're never any comfort to a
person. You're just like a stone, Max.
I don't know how I've endured you so
long."
Hs turned his eyes lazily upon her
with a look long, steady, inscrutable.
Neither spoke, but after a moment Elinor, with a beautifully assumed air of
perfect ease, sought refuge ln a study
of tbe pattern of the carpet
"Possibly I may tell you some time,"
he said, with s nonchalant laugh, "but
go on; let me hear what's the trouble.
You always tell me eventually."
And so, in fact she did. It was the
beauty of Max that he made you like
and hate him simultaneously. But no
matter what you felt you wanted him,
and you usually confided ln him. That
at least had been Elinor's experience,
and lt was being repeated for the hundredth time now. She wanted to tell
him; she always wanted to tell him everything. She leaned forward suddenly, with a childish bid for sympathy ln
her eyes.
"Yon see, Max, I've omitted to get
married. And now I'm thirty-one"—
"Plus," he corrected gravely.
"Thirty-one," sbe continued firmly,
"and, though Ifs been great fun—well,
all at once I realized tbat I'm an old
maid. It's so unexpected. Why haven't
I married? That's what I don't understand."
There was a pause ln which it seemed to her that she suddenly heard the
beating of her own heart. Before she
fully realized what had happened her
hands were held close and Mux was
saying:
"Look at me, Elinor, nnd see If you
can't find out. I've waited years for
you to finish sowing your wild oats."
Unnatiirnl.
Small Nancy, aged four, had a doll to
which she was devotedly attached. It
could open and shut its eyes, and every
night Nancy took lt to bed with her,
carefully closing Its eyes before the
light was turned out. One day the doll,
as dolls from time immemorial have
been known to do, met with an accident which placed the eye shutting
mechanism out of business and left it
with not only widely and permanently
opened optics, but badly damaged ones
as well. At intervals during the remainder of the day Nancy pleaded to
bave her dolly "cured," but nothing
was successful. At bedtime when she
had donned her nightdress and started
for her little bed ber mother saw she
had forgotten her adored doll and reminded her of it, saying:
"But, Nannie, you've forgotten your
baby. Sbe won't be able to sleep unless you take her to bed with you, as
usual."
To her mother's amused astonishment Nancy threw a half contemptuous
look over ber shoulder at the doll, recumbent on a chair, and said:
"Oh, what's the use? She can't sleep
snywny. Who ever heard of anybody
sleeping with their eyes wide open?"—

Craahed by Hla Wife.
"My wife ls not always as considerate of my feelings as she might be,"
says tbe man wbo invariably means
well. "I went home the other night
and I could see that I was not more

of—well, no matter what I was full
up of a new theory a man had been
Imparting to me, and as I always believe In a man's regarding his wife as
his intellectual equal I told her about
it Tho man told me that it is the
brain that really nourishes the hair.
Ho even went so fnr ns to say that if
you pull a huir out you pull out a bit
of brain with it It interested me exceedingly. My wife just sniffed.
" 'That's not new,' she said. 'I found
that out long ago. It doesn't mntter
either whether the hair is pulled out or

Timing Bananaa.
It Is generally known thnt bananas
are shipped while yet green and unripe, but few persons ure nwnre of the
careful and elaborate time calculations
required ln setting out the plants and
cutting off the fruit ln order to insure
the arrival of the bannnns ln proper
condition at their destination. Wben a
plantation ls begun the young plants
are set out nt certain intervals, so that
they will produce at regular prefixed
times during the year. A certain number of days before the arrival of a
steamer the green fruit Is cut, and a
close calculation of the time that will
be consumed ln the voyage must always be mnde, else the bananas will be
spoiled. Fruit steamers carry steam
bentlng apparatus to Insure a uniform
temperature throughout the voyage.
Tbo ripening is calculated to occur only
after tbe fruit has reached the retail
dealer.

W. H. HALL.
Editor and Proprietor of the Wolseley
News.
The subordination of personality
of the editor to the interest of the
paper of which he is the controlling
spirit is with some newspaper men a
belief as implicitly believed in as the
Thirty-nine Articles by an Anglican,
or the Wesminster Confession by a
Presbyterian. They believe that the
individuality of the man who writes
should not be obtruded upon his readers any more than the individuality
of the tailor who measures him for his
clothes should be apparent to the public, or than the individuality of the barber who shaves him should be evident
to everybody who sees him walk down
the street. ' They hold that the newspaper business differs in no essential
particular from any other business,
and that, if a man is qualified for his
work, his paper will evidence the fact,
and he will get public support on the
merits of his publication, irrespective
of all personal and individual considerations. This Is undoubtedly true, but
not the whole truth. It Is a very
human characteristic to take a greater
interest in any abstract proposition
when it Is identified with a personality.
By this means each become correlatives—one is always thought of in
connection with the other, and the
Interest of both are thereby advanced.
Even in Britain, the home of anonymous journalism, many of the papers
of greatest influence derive much of
that influence because of association
with the personality of a man, and ln
America the instances are numerous
where the power of a paper has simply
the measure of the personal influence
of its editor. Greeley and Watterpn
are past and present examples of the
truth of tnis in the United States, and
in Canada many illustrations of the
same truth could be cited. What made
tne Toronto Globe of the last generation the '|Grit Bible" but the personality of George Brown? What but the
individuality of W. F. Luxton made
the Manitoba Free Press of the 80's
the power it was in Western Canada?
And, in a smaller way, because of their
more limited sphere of subscribers,
the influence of many a Western Canadian weekly is acknowledged to be
the influence of its editor, in a direct
and personal sense not usually understood. Instances of the truth of this
will occur to every one who knows
anything of Western journalism-
cases in which the virile personality
of the man who runs the institution
can be seen by the discerning, not
alone in every editorial, but ln every
trial item, and almost in the makeup
of the paper.
There are other men who, If not so
obtrusively original, are still able, and
whose paper from week to week Is
almost the only means of knowledge
possessed by their brethern of the
craft as to their personality. Of this
latter class ls Mr. W. H. Hall, of the
Wolseley News. To the generality of
the editors of the west Mr. Hall Is
most generally known hy the copies
of his paper that from week to week
they find on their exchange desks.
And It must be ndmittod that the estimate formed of the man from his work
is a favorable one. The News Is ln
many respects one of the most creditable of Territorial weeklies. Few
papers better fulfil the manifold re*
tjulrementa of that often discussed ant
seldom seen shoot—a good local paper.
Many other weekly papers In tho West
have a hotter mechanical equipment
than the News but few display more
caro and taste in using tho facilities
at their disposal. Its makeup and
presswork from week to week show
unvarying care. The business announcements of tho local merchants
are displayed with a judgment, often
looked for ln vain in much more pretentious papers. Its record of local
happenings ls ln many respects a
model to other Western editors, the
news being brightly written and well
arranged. Iieing the only paper pub*
lished in Wolseley, It places local Interests above political bias, and Is altogether Independent in Its attitude.
Tnls does not imply that lhe News
has no opinions, or that lt ls a spineless wobbler. On the contrary It distributes commendation or blame to
both political partita as Ihe circumstances seem to warrant, nnd thereby
has secured tho respect, not only of Its
BUbBCrlberg in tho Wolseley district,
but of the Western world of nowa-
paperdom as a whole.
The editor of Iho News Is Mr. W. H.
iiaii, whose "counterfeit presentment"
•adorns the head of this article. Mr.
tall Is Kngllsh by birth, a west, countryman, having been born near Bristol,
He was educated in the llritish grammar school, one of England's most
famous schools.   Ho has been a real-
No   Argument   Will
Convince   a   Women
that a flour is all right, if she can't make good bread with it
The one argument that wins every woman in favor of
ROYAL HOUSEHOLD FLOUR is, that it never fails
to turn out the most beautiful Bread and Cake and the most
crisp and delicious Pastry when used according to the very
simple "Royal Household" recipes That one fact outweighs all the theories of two thousand years.
No other flour has ever made so many intimate friends
among Canadian women in so short a time.—Perhaps it's
because "Royal Household" is made by the new electrical
process—that makes a wonderful difference in flour.
Your grocer sells " ROYAL HOUSEHOLD " and you can have the
recipes by simply sending your name and address to The Ogilvie Flour

dent of Western Canada for more than
twenty years, coming to the country
ln the boom year of 1882. His first
newspaper work was undertaken in
Portage la Prairie a year later. In
1885 he went to Vlrden and took
charge of the Vfrden Advance. For
eleven years he edited that paper, resigning in 1896. Three years later
he took over the management of the
Wolseley News, which under his
guidance has greatly improved ln
every Important respect, and is now
one of the best weeklies in the Territories. Mr. Hall is prominent in temperance work, being one of the most
Influential members of the Royal
Templars. He Is also a leader in the
Orange Order, and an officer in the

AN AID TO MOTHERS.
Derangement of the stomach or
bowels is responsible for most of the
ailments that afflict Infants and
young children. For keeping the
stomach and bowels in order nothing
can equal Baby's Own Tablets, that
is why children ln the homes where
these Tablets are used are bright,
good-natured and healthy. Mrs.
Joseph Wallace, Shanley, Ont., says:
"I have used Baby's Own Tablets for
my baby since her earliest Infancy,
and have found them to be a medicine that meets all tho needs of little
ones. They have kept my little one
as bright and healthy as can be."
xhese Tablets are sold under a guarantee to contain no opiate or poisonous "soothing" stuff. Sold by all medicine dealers or by mall at 25 cents a

HANDKERCHIEF CASE.
1'ieful When Traveling and Also Vmw
Collar* and   Stock*.
A handy handkerchief case for women who travel ls one of those utterly
simple little Inventions that are so wonderfully helpful and can be enlarged
upon or developed Into a dozen other
things as satisfactory In themselves.
A double use for It, by the way, is to
tuck turnover collars and stocks ln the
division under the handkerchiefs.
Take two strips of silk or ribbon,
each twelve Inches long by four wide,
Iny cotton hatting, with sachet powder
Inserted, smoothly over both pieces, and
line them with silk or another color or
white.
I.ny one on the other, crossing, so
that the centers of both are In the sarar
spot, and sew along the edges of the
outer strip, leaving the edges of the
Inner strip free. Then tuck a half Inch
ribbon to the center of the outside, fold
the Inner strip In three by laying each
end over flat, and fold the outer over ln
thc same way, tying tbe ribbon securely ln a bow on top.
The folds, both lengthwise and crosswise, -will prevent your handkerchiefs
from working out. ns they do so often
ln handkerchief cases. And collars can
be deftly slipped lietween outer nnd
Inner strip and folded over the handkerchiefs. They will muss less this
way, if your space ls too limited to
box them comfortnbly, than nny other
way.—Philadelphia North American.

Wonderful Cure of Mrs. James Kinsella, who slept In a chair for Two
Summers—What 8he Says of It.
St. Malachle, Que., Mar. 20.—(Special)—A cure of great Interest to
women has attracted the attention of
those interested in medical matters in
this neighborhood. Mrs. Jas. Kinsella,
wife of a well-known citizen, had suffered from a complication of troubles
for about two years. She hdd a pain
ln the right hip, ln the back and was
obliged to pass water every fifteen
minutes ln a burning Itching sort of
way.
Sh could not sleep at night and had
to sit up ln a chair for two summers.
Dodd's Kldnek Pills cured her.
Mrs. Kinsella speaking of her cure
says, "After the  first box of Dodd's
Kidney Pills I felt much better.   Then
I got more and they did me a world
of good.    I have never slept ln the
chair since I used Dodd'S Kidney Pills.
Woman's health depends on her kidneys.     Nine-tenths   of   the   so-called
female complaints are caused by uric

several hours, uid a man unconscious
and dying were found ln a cab which
was driven up to a Brooklyn police
station at. u gallop. The man, who
was   suffering   from   alcoholism,   and
possibly from the effects of a drug,
may recover. The man said his name
was Thomas Deegan and that he lived
in Comoe street, one of the better
class residential sections of Brooklyn.
The dead woman he said waa Miss
Mary Savage, 30 years old. Both Deegan and Miss Savage wero well dressed. The cab, driven by a man who
said his name waa David Good, dashed
up to the police station, and when the
policemen came out they found the
man and woman lying back in the
coach. It was seen at a glance that
the woman was dead, but tho man
was still alive and physicians were
hurriedly summoned. He became
greatly excited when told that his companion was dead.

"My baby was very sick with a terrible cough. I gave her your C0LT8-

I was also sick myself with a bad attack of pneumonia, two winters ago,
and my lungs continued to troublo me
until last March, when I tried PSYCHINE, and ln a few days my lungs
got strong.
"That one bottle of PSYCHINE did
more for me than doctors' prescriptions and all the remedies I ever tried."

PALE FACE, WEAK BLOOD
You can mako tho Blood Rich, the System
Strong, the Complexion Healthful
by Using
DR. CHASE'S NERVE FOOD.
Why do some people hare healthful, rosy complexions while others
are pale and wan ln countenance?
Why are some people strong and
able to defy disease while others are
weak and subject to all the ills of
human kind.'
The difference is ln tbe blood. Pallor of the eyelids, gums and lips tell
of blood that ls lacking in quality and
richness.
The person who has poor blood ls
subject to headache, dizziness, sleeplessness; the action of the heart is
weak and there ls sometimes palpitation; the breath ls short, and there
is lack of energy and strength.
This weak, anaemic condition ls entirely overcome by the persistent use
of Dr. Chase's Nervo Food, which ls
above all else a builder and enrlcher
of the blood.
You can best prove this by noting
your Increase ln weight from week
to week, while using this great food
cure.
New, rich flesh and tissue are added, new strength and rigor take the
place of weakness and suffering, and
Instead of taking cold or contracting
disease at every gust of wind that
blows you find yourself getting strong
and robust.

very much run down ln health and
suffered from weak, tired feelings,
indigestion and rheumatism. At
times I was so badly used up that I
required help to move in bed. While
sick and downhearted I received Dr.
Chaso's Almanac and sent for some
of Dr. Chase's Nerve Pood.
"Under this treatment I soon began to improve, and by the time I had
used eleven boxes of Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food I was happy to find myself
strong and well again. I often think
of what a lot of money I spent for
medicines which did me no good, and
believe I owe my life to Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food. I hope women who suffer

and use Dr. Chase's Nerve Food."

THE SLOCAN DRILL,
Slocan, B. C
FRIDAY, MARCH 81, 1005.
"" KOITORIAL   CKOPPINU8.
The Liberal family row in Quebec
haj ended in Premier Parent resigning and Hon. L. Gouin being appointed in hi^ place.
It begins to look as if thero would
be no railway programme presented
to the legislature this session. There
have been too many wildcat and holdup schemes in lobby.
With this issue The Drill completes
its fifth year of residence in Slocan. It
is the oldest paper in the district and
has been fortunate in enjoying the
lasting goodwill of the sheriff.
The amendments to the school
clauses of the Northwest autonomy
bul are classed as a compromise.
Bather are th^y nu absolute surrender
of public principle to serve political
ends.       ____________
Hon. Clifford Sifton has repented
him of his hasty action in resigning
his position as minister of the interior,
and he now wants Laurier to git j him
back his job. He has accepted the
amendments to the school clauses of
the Northwest autonomy bill, but says
he does so "without enthusiasm."
It is not enthusiasm but principle Sifton should show—a virtue in which he
has always been deficient.
Finance Minister Tatlow has framed
the estimates for the province with a
due regard for economy, and the figures presented to the legislature on
Tuesday evidence a determined effort
to keep the expenditures as close as
possible lo the receipts. Though a
small deficit is foreshadowed, it is altogether possible this will be turned
into a surplus at the end of the year,
•s tho receipts have beon figured on a
conservative basis.
It is a little surprising that when
homeseckfers are taking up every available acre of flat land around Kootenay
lake, equally choice bits of scenery
around Slocan lake and in the contiguous valleys should Ik* overlooked.
Fruit can be raised just as well in this
section as in any other part of the
Kootenay district, and there are thousands of acres of vacant lands adapted
for that purpose available for the
homeseeker. Choice hinds may be
had in the Slocan valley, on the
benches around Slocan lake, in the
'Nakusp pass,and on Wilson and other
large creeks. The local market for
fruits is restricted and growers would
have to figure oa exporting their surplus stock, but the industry should
pay*       	
■a*a»^MM__
The hardships worked upon ineor-
ponted towns by the old School Act
through children from outlying districts attending the schools without
financial recompense therefor, nre to
be obviated under the new provincial
act, many amendments thereto having
beon introduced. City school districts
•re to be given the power to extend
their boundaries from time to time, as
may be deemed expedient by tbe
trustees, taking in all unorganized
lands lying without and adjacent to
the corporatiou boundaries. These
outside lands are to be assessed and a
school rate levied thereon equal to the
rate paid within the city. The provincial authorities will collect the tax
levied on the outside lands and pay
the same over to the city school trustees. By this amendment the vexed
question of outside pupils attending
city schools is at once happily and
effectively solved, as the additional
expenses incurred by the trustees
»bo?e the government grant will be
borne equally |,v all interested. To
Slocan the new law means much, es
pecially when it is learned that the
fixed grant to schools in third class
cities has also liecn increased. It will
make the local school practically self-
•upporting, releasing lo the city about
$1000 n year for needed municipal
public works and Improvement*

in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
men seek the aid of
the printer
