I.ssi-nl Caisip.
R. C. Campliell-Johnston, manager
of the Republic mine, has a capital
article in the San Francisco Mining &
Scientific Press on the dry ores of
Slocan, He says they are undoubtedly attracting attention from the min-
iug world for many reasons, partly
that her veins contain large masses of
ores; partly that the average values
aro abnormal, and partly as this class
of ore calls for a new arrangement of
metallurgical skill to recover at loast
the requisite lJ0 por cent of contents,
The characteristics of the dry ores
of tin' Slocau tire that lhe silver occurs
native, or as sulphides, or alloyed.
The gold is carried in arsenides and
Bulphidea of iron, only being native
visibly sometimes in the oxidized
The structure of the district consists
of ranges of eruptive granite, with it
trend northerly and southerly, indented with past and present glaciers with
their accruing rivulets eating into the
other process allows only the richer
ore to lie treated.
Dry concentration stares one in the
face as the primary solution, and this
is a process to treat material as line
as 80 to 200 mesh when classified,
since these fines occur in all erushings.
Local facilities for fuel, fluxes and
ample power are abundant. With an
economical concentration, the gold
and silver ores of Slocan are rich
enough to continue lieing profitably
produced, despite an even lower price
of silver.

Expectations did not realize this
week and no ore shipments have been
made from the division. A little more
ore has come down from the Ottawa,
but not sufficient to fill out a car. The
roads have broken up and there will
lie much difficulty in handling tonnage from the virious creeks. The
comparison with last year's output is
most striking.
For 1902 the ore shipments from
the local division amounted to 6333
tons, made up from 12 properties.

S. 8. McGurt OiPijwrjn
Huld* was having a hard time of it
In her heart of hearts she could not
quite decide which one sbe loved best.
Hans, she had to confess, had some advantage* whieh weighed with her. Mr.
Barton, tbe man wbo owned the place
across the street, was particular about
bis furnace man, and she knew he
liked Hans. Besides, Hans could apeak
Swedish, and she couldn't deny tbat it
was pleasant to talk with bim in tbe
accents of the dear old borne she bad
left so far behind.
But whenever his plain, .open counte-
asnee, witb the blue eyes twinkling below the yellow hair, was pictured in
her mind she blamed blm for being a
little too ordinary. She could see a
dozen such any Sunday ln Ihe little
8wedish church. Now, witb n men who
wore a long blue coat with a five pointed *Ur on the front of it and carried a
mahogany club it was different. No
one who looked at bim could fail to see
that he, being a part of tbe government, was superior to the common run
ssf men.
James had told ber that he was "tbe
right arm of the law." and sbe had
looked her admiration. She had known
hlm almost a* long as sbe bad Hans,
■nd he waa so good to her. On Sunday* In tbe park he would get ber a
•eat close up to tbe bnnd stand. Tben
wben the concert was over he would
buy some peanuts, and together they
would stroll through the part of the
park tbat had signs to keep off the
grass stuck up all over it Of course
he could go anywhere,
James knew that Hans was his rival,
for one Saturday night he had come to
see Hulda and had found Hans there.
Hulda had said:
"Hans, tbis is Mr. Daniels."
And Hans had said. "I am vnar glad
to see you," while James bad mumbled,
"How d'ye do?" and then sat scowling
tt tbe sink all the rest of the evening.
After that James uever came on a
Saturday. He asked to be shifted to
another platoon, so that he could do his
calling on Monday or Tuesday nights.
Hans did not change bis night, nnd so
they never met at liulda's home again.
Indeed James tsxsk so little paius to
cultivate Hans' Acquaintance that he
never even learned whnt his rival dial
for a living. And this disdainful indifference proved costly ln the end.
How Hulda would have learned to
know her heart had uot Hank O'Day,
the iceman, set in motion a fateful
train of circumstances one cannot even
guess. Hank did not know Hulda. lie
dsoe* not know her to this day. And
yet It was none otber thau Hank wbo,
all unknowing, unmasked ber heart's
Hank O'Day drove to his Ice wagon
a pair of high spirited horses. One
morning wben his wagon was empty
his sestbetic instincts led blm to lay
his route back to tbe ice yards along
the street tbat skirted the park.
Just as the <*hariot of fate was uear-
Ing Hulda's home the chain at the
back of the wagon slipped and let the
end gate drag upon the gi uud. Hank
swore softly, stopped his team nud
Jumped to the pavement to fasten the
chain. He Jerked it quickly through
the iron rings and theu—swore again
as the team, alarmed by the sudden
noise, galloped madly down the avenue and made straight for the nearest
entrance to the park.
Tbe horrified Hank stood still long
enough to see the end gate banging out
defiance. Then he started nfter the
runaways as fast as his rubber boots
would let him run.
When Officer James Daniels turned
from his faithful guardianship of a
bevy of simpering uursegirls in the
park, be saw coming toward him at
full speed a pair of wild eyed horses
and an ice wagon swaying from eiiie to
aide. Behind the seat uf thc wagon
stood a man trying desperately to get
hold of tbe reins.
In an Instant James recognized the
waving yellow hair and pale features
as those of Hans Peterson, and in the
same moment, like an inspiration, there
came to him the realization nf tils opportunity. He rnu out into the roadway and as the flying wagon passed
caught tbe chain of the end gate and
swung himself Into the Ihsx.
As he gained his feet the wagon
■lowed suddenly, and he lurched forward to bring up against the bnck of
the sturdy Swede. Seizing hlm firmly
by the collar, Officer Daniels gasped:

Hans did not quite understand, but
the hand on his collar in the moment
■f hi* success made bim angry.
"Whad yo' say?   Led me go!"
"I My you sre under arrest." James
tras getting bis breath again.  "This is
against the law, you know."
"Whad Is agalns' da law?"

the wagon, but tbe latter still held the
reins and refused to go. In his broken

he all but exploded. Another oflicer

Han* dropped the reins and appealed
to the other policeman. But the new-
c-ouaer wa* Indifferent If Hans had
been arrested, why of course he would
bave to go to the station.
The magistrate was busy when they
•iTlved. and lt was upon tbe office*-'-*
recommendation that Hans was allowed to go until afternoon, when he
would ha\t his bearing, 'i *i have Hans
released was the scheme James had
evolved. Hans would have to explain
whete he wanted lo go when he left
tbe house iu tbe afternoon. Thus his
employer would learn all and Hans, at
least disgrac'-d, might possibly lose his
place. Would she of the flaxen hair
and the wide, admiring eyass hesitate
any longer? James smiled as he strolled
back on post.
In the afternoon Officer Daniels,
Hans Peterson, Hank O'Day snd Mr.
Barton, the man Hans worked for,
came Into court. The officer told the
circumstances of the arrest and dwelt
at length upon the plain case of violation of the city ordinances. Theu Hank
O'Day explained who he was nud how
his horses bad become fiishtened.
Hans took the stand and said he "yust
yunip in da wagon to stop id," and
finally Mr. Barton informed the court
that Hans worked for him and bad
never driven an ice wagon in his life.
The Judge turned to Janus again,
and when the officer had nothing to
say began to talk himself. He talked
for quite awhile, and most of the time
he addressed his remarks to Officer
Da n is* is.
When the butler bad read to Hulda
fior.i that evening's paper the account
of the runaway and the trial, what the
judge had said to James and what he
had said about Hans, she went out iuto
the kitchen and sighed and thought.
That uight Hans came and talked long
and earnestly, and as be talked the
fading glimmer of that five pointed
siar went out, and naught remained
for her but the light In Hans Teterson's
blue eyes.
Wool and  Hair.
The life and growth of wool and hair
are not identical with the life of the
body, but they will grow after the
death of the animal in whose skin tliey
have taken root. The rasot of the hair
exudes the hair pulp, which is forme/d
iuto cells containing tli*? pipnient which
gives color to the hair itself. Each row
of these cells forms a ring. As the
rings of cells are pushed away from
the skin by tbe giving out of fresh
pulp from the roots the cells dry. forming scales which curiously resemble
miniature fish scales, a hair Is simply
a long tube formed of these riugs into
n sort of sheath. These "saw teeth."
•rliich the uider writers meiiiiisu as t>*e-
lug one of thc characteristlca of the
human hair, ure formed 'uy rings of
these dried up cells, which are very
fine and closely set.
Goat's balr has a more rapid growth
nnd longer cells, so that it is less regular and straight than thnt of the human species; consequently it shows little of the toothlike <*dye. The hair of
the sheep of the common sort is irregular, witli a tendency to curl or wave,
but, uulike that of the goat. sh?\vs
marked toothlike edges. Wool has
barbed projections along the "hairs."
which is one of its diatlngulshliig peculiarities. The "wool" of the negro is
really hair, but is less perfect than
straight hair. The same may be Mid
of "kiuky" hair lu the white races.

Every man and woman of us who has
lived long enough in the world to gain
wisdom by experience will be obliged to
admit the strange sad union of love ami
quarreling. But every one of us who
has lived deeply enough to know that
experience worketh hope will admit
that when love quarrel**, with its be-
leved It is just because this noble ideal
sif unity has run off the track, so to
speak: a virtue has gone to seed; a divine quality has developed a defect.
The outlook for quarrelsome love is not
so hopeless when we can understand
this. See how It would work If those
two squabbling sisters would either of
them stop to remember that it is only
love, foolish, exasperating, unbalanced
love, that is responsible for the ill bred
domestic criticism that spoils the home
life, if June once honestly believed that
Mary's love made her so unpleasant
she would stop aghast amused no
doubt and very likely touched, but almost certainly silenced. And that would
be the end of the quarrel.—Margaret

The name of the precious stone inserted In the ring of Gyges has not
been handed down to us, but It I* probable that It was the topaz, whose wonders I'hilostfiTtes recounts in the ]If**
of Apollontu*. An attribute of the sun
and of fire, the ancient* called It the
(•old magnet, as It was credited with
the [tower of attracting that metal, Indicating Its veins ami discovering treasures. Heltodorus In his story of Theni?-
enes and Charicle* says that the topaz
saves frem fire all those who wear it
and that Oharlcle* was preserved by a
topaz from the fiery vengeance of Ar-
saecs, queen of Ethiopia.
Thi3 stone was one of the first talismans thnt Theagenes possessed in
Egypt The topaz at present symbolizes Christian virtues—faith, Justice,
temperance, gentleness, clemency.-

ns paralyzing Its prey through terror
excited by the soaud thus ludueeil.
Hut this ls a very slotibtftil cxplaun
tion. It Is akin to the notion formerly
entertained that serpents bad a power
of fascinating other creatures, others
have thought that It seems to excite
the curiosity of animals and so brings
them within the rattlesnake's reach.
It has also been supposed that It serves,
as it may do. to enable snakes of different sexes to find each other and nlso
to guard the animal from attack when
lt is helpless from its power of offense
having been temporarily exhausted,

which ho* been brought out of obscurity and thrust into the broad
flare of public notice by the almost
miraculous cure of a young girl of

fame with a sort of surprise. All the
▼Ulase knows Alio* Maud Parker, all
thought that a few mouths ago she
was sick beyond the hope of recovery, that Bright's Disease had her
tn Its clutches, and once that monster had fastened on a victim the
only release was death; and all know
that to-day she is a comely min dm
of fifteen with health beaming from
every feature and speaking in her
every movement. And all have heard
time and again that this remarkable
change was brought about by that
old reliable Canadian remedy,Dodd's
Kidney Pills. Yet it is with something like surprise that thoy hear thc
noise th* cure baa made in thc out-

as a revelation to the world has
come on theni day by day, so gradually that they fall to grasp its magnitude.

are all aaally obtained and can be

family, but by a hundred other people who watched the girl gradually

Asked to begin at the beginning, and
tell thc complete story of the caso,
she complied willingly, for she felt

birth. When she was twelve years
old she was not any larger than an
ordinary child would be at eight
yenrs old. Dut like many other delicate children, Alice pulled along as
delicate children will, till Juno,
*.'(>0. She was then thirteen years
old. On .July 7th she wan taken seriously ill. Hor eyelids swelled till
she could hardly see, her legs swelled
fro,,, her ankles to her kneos. I took
her to a doctor, and he said she had
Height's Disease, and could not live
long. The doctor tended her for
about six weeks, but as she grew
worse, T stopped the doctor and
tries! different kinds- of patent medicines. But all the time she got wssrs*
and worse. Her sufferings had by
this time become so great that I
again turned to the doctors. Thi*
timo I tried another one. He had
no hesltntion in pronouncing her disease Bright's Disease sf the worst
Hull Msasnrpsl 48 Inrhes.
"By this time Alice was In a terrible state. Tier belt In health meusr
uied twenty inches. When she was
at her worst it was forty-eight inches. Her flesh was hard and looked
ready to burst. The doctor who was
a very nice man, said he could not
do anything, It looked as if all that
wus left for iny daughter wa* to go
on suffering till death came to her
"She wns in this terrible state
wlii'ii she chained to read some testimonials as to what Dodd's Kidney
Pills bus] done for others She showed them to me. ami I grasped at tliis
last chance to help her, as a drowning u,nn grasps at a straw.
Ilssw Ihi' Cre   11'i.Jii
"She began taking Dodd's Kidney
Pills on November 2,'Jth, and liefore
she had finished the first box I could
see a change for thc better. Dy December 10th there was a marked improvement in her condition, but
there was a large gathering across
th* small of her back and ready to
lance, When it was opened it omitted a quart of matter, besides blood
and water. Again we feared for her
life, and ugain the doctor warned me
tluit she might die at any moment.
But my faith in Dodd's Kidney l'ills
hnd grows, and all through that
long winter she took theni regularly,
and under the treatment continues!
to gain in strength till by April her
bnck was well, find the swelling had
all left her, though her urine when
tested was milky nnd at times it
would curdle.
"Still she war vastly improved,
nnd 1 was greatly encouraged, end
Continued to give ber tho pills till
November, when she appeared to be
l*erfectly well and was growing faster
than sho had done for years."
A Nearly Fatal Mlatake.
At this point Mrs. Parker nearly
made a  fatal  mistake.    She (topped
but fer more nutritive—that's what
they say about
-* Why not 7 It's " flake white," it
contains the best elements of the
wheat kernel; it "raises" beautifully
and browns to perfection on the top

housekeeper's delight.
Whose rcmurkable recovery from
Bright's Disease hns set all Canada
the uso of Dodd's Kidney Pills before
the disease had been thoroughly
cleare.l out of the system. There
could only be on* result. Tho
Bright's Disease grudually regained
lis hohl on the victim. "And," said
Mrs. Parker, continuing, "to our
great surprise, in January, 1902, the
swelling came back.
"This time, though, I knew what
to do. I sent at once for six boxes
of Dodd's Kislney Pills. She began
at once to take them, and gradually
the dread monster fell back before
the great remedy, By the time she
hail taken four boxes the swelling
began to leave. This time I made
no mistake. I kept right on with
the treatment til) every vestige of
the dlsoaso bed disappeared, till my
daughter was gi-.cn hnrl. to me, not
as the puny, delicate child she wns
before .her sickness, but as you see
her now, a biu, strong, healthy girl j
of fifteen, full of vim and go, ready
to hold ber own in the struggle of
liiiil.ra Kislney l'ills *nid It.
"And all this T charge to Dodd's
Kidney Pills, and to nothing else.
The doit ors tultl nie my daughter
coul'l nol live When they knew I
was giving her Dodd's Kidney Pills,
the.v snld thnt if they cured her it
would be one ol the greatest, mira-
c'e.-i in the worlsl, for the like had
never been in this province or anywhere else. And Podd'i Kidney Pills
did cure her. I gave her 70 boxes of
them altogether, but they gave her
life in return, and 1 feel hat I cannot say enough for Dodd's Kidney
Ilia   -SBBBllB.I   -g   Pp.
This  is  tho  story  of    the  famous
'. Bright's Disease cure, as told by the
mother  of the  '.ufferer herself.  There
i can be no doubt as to the truth of
' the story.    Scores  of people corrob-
! united  It.   The ense was thoroughly
j diagns'-sed by skilled physicians, who
unhesitatingly pronounced it Bright'*
Neither can there be any doubt a*
to  what  caused     the cure.   It    wa*
Dodd's Kidney   Pills.   For,  after the
doctors had  given the patient up for
lost,  Dodd's  Kidney Pills were    the
only medicine used.   The fact remains
that Dodd's Kidney Pills have cured
Plight's Disease.    And if Dodd's Kidney Pills can  and  do cure   Bright's
Disease,  which is the worst stage of
'Kidney  Disense,   how   sure  must     tt
| be that the.v  are a sovereign remedy
Ifor  those earlier     stages of Kid 'mr

Canadian people are suffering.

FRIDAY, MARCH 27th, 1903.
Sincere regret will bo felt by all
classes at the failure of the arbitration
committee of the Provincial Mining
Association to effect a settlement of
the Fernie coal strike. At one time it
looked as if a settlement were assured,
but the miners subsequently turned
down the action of the district executive. It is a thousand pities the dispute cannot be amicably adjusted, for
it practically means the complete
shutdown of metalliferous mining and
smeltiug-isU southeastern British Columbia. God knows the province has
had more than her share of trouble of
late years.
Next Thursday the provincial legislature will meet for the dispatch of
business, the government asserting
confidence in their strength and ability
to witheftand all onslaughts from the
opposition. The last four weeks have
proven a strenuous period for the government and they have lieen sore
pressed, but it looks as if an arrangement had been made whereby the estimates and non-contentious legislation will be passed ere a thought be
given to disslution. As expected, there
have been results from among weak-
backed oppositisinists during the period of waiting, Niell, of Allierni,pled<^-
ing a "qualified" support to the government. Such are politics in British
Never wero the services of compulsory arbitration moro urgently
needed than at the present time, for
the various labor troubles are paralyzing the industrial life of tho province.
Conciliation and arbitration through
well-meaning friends and institutions
have failed in their purpose, and the
strong arm of the law is required.
Yet, it cannot be invoked, for there is
no machinery available. Were arbitration made compulsory it would
soon wind up all trouble. Any party
to a dispute unwilling or ashamed to
air their grievances liefore a properly
constituted board would deserve to
lose their case. No fair-minded man
would question the rulings of such a
board any more than he would those
from the judiciary. Much harm from
these industrial disputes is unwittingly laid upon the shoulders of innocent
parties, and it should not be. The
law should protect the people and
that protection can best lie afforded
through compulsory arbitration.

There aro Liberals in British Columbia that are far from being a credit
to the party to which  they claim allegiance.   A conspiracy i.s afoot to deprive Joe Martin   of   the provincial
leadership and put  iu  Ralph Smith,
and to that end call  atiother conven
tion  at Revelstoke.    A  year ago the
Liberals met in convention at Vancouver, declared "for party  lines and selected Martin as leader.  The inaehiiii'
was not satisfied and  ever since have
endeavort'd to oust aloseph, hence the
present movement. Soreheads at Vancouver are the principal actors in tlie
scheme, while tho lenders at Ottawa
are professedly sponsors for Smith as
leader, who, it is claimed, will enter
provincial politics with the Laixn* men
at his back.   The conspiracy is most
.contemptible aud the men furthering
it have acted treacherously towards
their party and leader.   Joe Martin is
the strongest and most   progressive
Liberal in the province and Ralph
Smith will never displace him. Smith
could not carry a single labor constit
uency in British Columbia and he will
not get the support of the unions. He
has lieen  tried  and  found wanting.
He is a place-seeker, pure and simple.
Put Smith in as leader of tlie Liberal
party in  this province and the Conservatives   could   wish   for   nothing
better, as   they   would   iieat   him so
badly he would never rise again.    If
Ralph   .Smith   is   wise   he will  stay
where he  is, and  if those Grit .soreheads at Vancouver would let their
common sense prevail,   thoy   wou'd
leave Martin alone,
provided. All friends of tho order and
sojourning brethren are cordially invited.

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
