Geo. Motosowa, from Sindon, relative to brick chimneys ordered put
in their premises on Delaney avenue.
The former wished the city every
success in its career of progress end
prosperity. The clerk was instructed
to examine the chimneys on both
buildings and the letters were *'vlcd.
M. Bray, receiver of the city of
Wellington, which was recently disincorporated, wrote quoting prices w
tire apparatus for sale by that burg.
Aid. Bradshaw said the city should
take some steps towards getting an
engine and hose and the offer made
was a good one, An inspector of insurance was recently in and stated,
that if the city would put in even ••
limited system of waterworks for
lighting lire, it would mean a reduction of 2 per cent iu the insurance.
This* was a big thing to be consider
Letter laid over and the clerk ordered to write for a detailed state
ment of price and terms of the lire
apparatus offered for sale, and the
condition of the same.
The special committee on water
works appointed at last meeting reported in favor of the extension ofthe
Brandon sys'ein to the corner of Slo
can street, as nskod for, the agreement to be valid for two years, or
until such times as an adequate system has been installed by the city.
Considerable discussion ensued on the
subject, the idea expressed by a portion of thc council being, that there
was a nigger in thc fence somewhere.
On motion of Aid. Smith and Worden
the report and action thereon was
laid over for one week.
Finance committee reported favorably on P, Swan's account for tire
ball supplies.   Bill ordered paid.
W. H. Ferguson and others petitioned to havo the sidewalk on the

Under general business, Aid.Bradshaw brought up the question ofthe
police magistrateship. lie would
like to sec instructions given tbe city
clerk to write the provincial secretary and ascertain if any recommendation had been mado by the local
member on the subject. If not, when
was the appointment likely to be
mado. Nothing had been heard of

time something was being dono. The

Bradshaw and Nichol.
Aid. Bradshaw also wished to have
the clerk write the finance department at Victoria, asking permission
to have the city receive unpaid tuxes
for 1901, so' that additional rebate
may come tho more quickly to tho
corporation. This was mado into a
motion, secortded by Aid. Worden,
and carried.
Thc clerk presented a list of sup
plies required in his department.
Aid. Smith and Worden were cm-
powered to purchase the supplies.
Instructions were given the clerk
to get tenders for 500 assessment
notices and report at next meeting.
Aid. Bradshaw thought the city
wus paying too much for. police pro
tectlon. He would liko to seo the
civic offices combined and so. get
more money for building sidewalks'.
Thc police department was unproductive and was costing much money
to operate.
An acrimonious talk ensued, resulting in the matter being referred
to the pollco commissioners, on mo
Kind er Looks Suspicious.
Saturday evening Supt. DuBois of
the Arlington met with a big surprise. He was invited to partake of
a big spread at the mine by the official staff—Messrs. Harrington, Cole
man and Burchall—there also being
present Geo. Henderson, T. McNeish,
tion of Aid. Bradshaw and Nichol,
with a recommendation for them to
see if the city could not be policed at
a less cost thin at present.
Council then adjourned.
Promising Section.
One ofthe most promising sections
of the country—that lying to the head
ofthe first north fork of Lemon creek
—will see some life during the winter. Three properties at least will be
worked, the Hoodoo, Fourth of July
and Duplex, while further down tlie
Rose and Legal will continue development for some time vet. Indications are that something tangible will
also eventuate at the Chapleau and
Kilo. That particular section is
studded with claims of more than or
di nary promise. By values of gold
are obtained on all the leads, in addition to the ordinary values in silver. There are' some mighty iron-
cap propositions in that camp, which
can-be turned into dividend-payers.
Thc creek has been somewhat neg
lected by capitalists, but tho properties will win out on their merits. The
work to be prosecuted this winter
will havo a beneficial effect.

Inspected tbe Black Prince.
John Harris, of Spokane, and C,
Donahue, of Now Richmond, Wis.,
arrived in on Saturday, and went up
to make a careful examination of the
Black Prince. Monday thoy went
on up to Four Mile nnd inspected the
Fisher Maiden. Their trip into the
country was with the view to investing considerable money in a dry ore
proposition. Mr. Djnahuc was in the
Slocan -in the early days and later on
spent three years in ths Klondike.
After an experience which cost him
several thousand dollars, Mr. Donahue came to tho conclusion that the
Klondike was afflicted with the
worst set of official rascals that ever
cursed any country.
A Lulsor Address.
Monday evening a large meeting
of citizens was held in the Miners'
Union hall, having been called up in
a hurry, to listen to an address on
Labor topics by W. J. Walker, ot the
Freemen's Journal, Spokane. Mr.
Walker spoke for two hours, dealing
with the situation In- the Coeur
d'Alencs, Northport, and Rossland,
and describing the struggles of Labor
to maintain their organizations. He
gave  much  encouragement   to the

Sbe felt that the rink waa immense
She wondered what Edward Conway
was doing in that part of Cornwall Sbe
had never beard him speak of having
been in Cornwall, she had never heard
/ of his having any connection with any
one in Cornwall or with Cornish people,
and then she reminded herself, half bitterly, that she had known very little of
him at all But what was he doing here
in St Agnes? It was no use shirking
the situation She must dare and risk
all at this juncture Nothing would be
gained by cowardice And. after all. he
could never force her to go back to him
He could only at the very worst expose
tier, and in her case exposure would
mean the world's pity, never ita scorn
She drew her breath sharp between
her teeth, took her handkerchief off the
dressing table and turned and went out
of tbe room and dowu the stairs. Alan
Stacey following And in the best par
lor their breakfast was laid, and in two
minutes the delicate fried fish and gold
eu fresh eggs, were brought in.
"Fish or eggs and bacon, sweetheart T suiid Stacey as- the apple cheeked maid lifted the covers of the two
■•KggH uml Iiiicod tbank von, Alan,'
rh' "eis'-ed
She had never in her life felt less like
eating, but it would not do to arouse
suspicion by refusing to try to do so.
She poured out the coffee and listened
with a smile that was not very real
while Alan told her of his farewell to
the old boatman.
At last he stretched out his bund to
her across the table.
"Sweetheart," he said, "yon are
quite sad at going away Would you
rather stay here?"
She answered bim all in a hurry
"Ob, no, Alan; no, no. 1 am all packed
and ready. Don't suggest such a thing
What should make you give me such a
Lot's wife character us tbat ? I much
prefer to be going away We have been
here quite loug enough It is a dear little place, and you know I always want
to stay in a new place forever; it is one
of my characteristics), hnt 1 think I get
tired of tbem. I think I use them up. 1
don't believe I shall vant to come to
St Agnes again."
"Not even to have the cottage?'
"No," trying hard to repress a shudder; "na not even to have the cottage.
Alan. After all. I think yon are right
There is no place like London We will
stay at home a few days before we go
on.   What do you think?"
"Just as you please I don't see why
we ehonldn't"
"Nor I, "said she, for the thought
bad come to her that, if Edward Conway was hunting her down, tbere is no
place in tbe world where yon can keep
yourself hidden so easily as in London
Nor would it be easy to find her, for
she had not a single friend or acquaintance Wbo had known her at the time
of Captain Conway's supposed death
At the time of her second marriage she
wonld have written to Mr. Lawson, to
whom she had only a few weeks before
repaid tbe last installment of the £100.
■t what pinching effort she alone knew,
bnt he had just died, and with the other officials.of tbe Red River line she
had no acquaintance So long as sbe
did oot walk abroad there was but very
little chance of ber stumbling against
her pursuer. Here, on the contrary, it
was almost impossible to keep out of
tbe way of any one whom you did not
want to sea Presently she would bave
to drive three miles to the station, not.
mercifully, along the road to Roathlyn,
bnt in tbe opposite direction. Still, it
was possible that he might have
changed his mind, and in any case sbe
would not feel absolutely secure until
she was out of the neighborhood, until
she was out of this desolation of woods
and fields and Into the safe shelter of
the great city.
For one wild moment she wished
with all ber heart she had told Alan
when the news of Edward Conway's
rescue first reached ber. But now that
she had come face to face with the terrible and awful tragedy which would
end. God alone knew how, the did not
dare to speak. As she sot there, trying
to force the egg and the delicate strips
of bacon bit by bit down ber throat.
sbe recalled the very first time that she
had ever seen him—how he had refused
with absolute scorn to inquire into ber
character, how he bad told her that
honesty was the dominant note of her
life; that sbe had many times given
herself away by being too honest, by
not being able to tell, at tbe right moment, the harmless, necessary lie.
And if I tell tbe truth I must needs
confess that she was at this juncture
afraid to tell him—afraid to own tbat
abe had shared his life and love while
tbe barrier of a great secret lay between them. She told ^erself tbat it
wonld have been so easy to carry the
news straight to him then that day
when ber horrified eyes bad first fallen
npon that announcement in tbe papers
which was beaded, "Survivors of the
Arikhama" It was not easy then;
now it was almost impossible. She felt
that she could not face the look of surprise In his eyes; she felt tbat if everything came out, and he ahould ask
her to stay wltb bim, he could no
longer ask It as a favor. So more and
more she realized tbe Deed of keeping
It all a dead secret, of hiding from Edward Conway as long as she could and
of trusting to blind chance and Providence to free her-—to free her this time
beyond all shadow of doubt.
There were still totue trivial arrange*
ments for Alan to make when they had
finished breakfast, gratuities to be given, one or two little bills to be paid
and the landlord's account to be settled
in full. Sbe could hear him in the little
room across the passage explaining to
mine host tbat he had no donbt as to
the honesty of the bill—it was no use
bis going over tbe items, that he had
not tbe least idea how many whiskies
and sodas be had bad. and tlmt if he
bad no objection he wonld prefer tn set
tie tbe account without uuy further ar
guments. Then she heard the luudlcrd
protest that he wanted tbem to come
back again, and therefore he was par
ticularly anxious that Mr. Stacey should
go thoroughly into the bill, so thut if
there was anything to which he objected he might meet him at once
"My friend." said Alan, "you will
never make yonr fortune Here you
have entertained ns to the best of your
ability You bave satisfied both my
wife and myself, and we are extremely
obliged to you for all tbe trouble and
pains that yon have been at to give ns
a good time. 1 am quite satisfied tbat
the bill is all right and that there is not
a singlo item in it to which any reasonable man could raise any objection."
Then abe beard the chink of money
and. from the silence tbat followed,
guesaed that.the landlord was employed
in the eerions busim****- of receipting tbe
bill She wondered how many more hotel bills would be made out. paid and
receipted for their sojourn together
She wondered if Edward Conwuy found
her, and ahe decided to stay with Alan
—if Alan did not wish her to go away
Sbe wondered what people in London
would say; how they would take it
Sbe supposed that in tbat case Edward
Conway wonld make it tbe business of
his life to follow them round and ex
•slain to everv one the exact position ia
which they were placed. Would it be
better to tell everybody? Would the
story get into tbe papers? Would it be
blazoned from one end of tbe world to
the other that Alan Stacey's wife bad a
story as romantic as any of the thrilling pages which bad come from his pen ?
She bethought ber, in her distress
and anxiety, of a silly game called
"consequences," a game in which the
last clause is, "And the world said.'
Wbat would -the world say to them—to
ber? Sbe did not know; she did not
dare to think. Only she. felt resolved
tbat so long as she conld keep the secret
she wonld do so.
"And you will come back again,
sir?" she heard tbe boni face say.
"Yes, I expect we shall come back
again the next time I have got a spell
of hard work on and want to get out of
London. It is difficult to work in London," she heard Alan answer; "it is
difficult to keep free of interruptions
and so on. We bave enjoyed ourselves
very mnch, I can assure you."
Then she heard a heavy footfall entering the house. Her anxious, strained
ears told her whose steps they were.
Tbey passed her door to the sanded bar,
and then sbe heard Edward Conway's
voice saying: "You have a lady here
that is passing under tbe name of Stacey. Which is her room ?"
Then there was a rush across the
passage, and Alan Stacey burst into the
room and caught her in his amis.
','My poor child." he said, "I have
been dreading this for weeks and weeks.
The blow has fallen at last"
And by some instinct Mary knew not
only tbat he had known the truth all
along, but that be bad been the first of
the two to hear it
There was only time for a hurried
whieper between thent
"You won't. desert me—you won't
give me ever to bim ?   sbe gasped.
"Never," he answered; "never
while I live I"
Then tbe door was'pushed hurriedly
open, and Edward Conway's blunt features and burly figure appeared before
It was apparent to the meanest observation tbat tbe man was beside himself with passion. He stood jnst within
the doorway, bis hands thrust deep
down into his trousers pockets, eying
first one and then the other with bis
flinty eyes, and npon bis lips was a terrible sneer.
"Well, Mrs. Conway," he began at
last, "have yon no sort of welcome for
me, yonr long lost husband, given np
for lost years since, your little more
than bridegroom ? Still silent ? Have
you nothing to say?"
Her lips moved, bnt no sound came
from between them.
"Still silent? No fond word of greeting? Too much astonished, eb? Yon
made sure I was dead and gone, didn't
you ? But Edward Conway is not got
rid of so easily as tbat I Don't you think
it! Edward Conway has been under for
a good long time, and Edward Conway
has got up again, and he bas come back
again to his happy borne and his loving
little wife tbat be left behind him."
"Yon shall never come back to met I
wonld never have lived with you again I
Yon knew iti'
"Oh. you'ro thinking still of a bit of
a tiff I What's that between husband
and wife? Have you never tiffed \**''.!i
this Johnny that yon took np with as
soon as I was gone?"
"This lady is my wife, sir." pnt in
Alan Stacey, with dignity.
"Your what?"
"My wife, sirl Yonr turning ap

our marriage, bnt no slur will rest upon
this lady. Tbere Is nobody wbo knows
here that will not pity ber, and pity
ber doubly, first, for baviug been married to yon at all; secondly, for having

circumstances. This lady did not take

"She is coming back with me," said

The   Shocks   of   Exercise   Lengthen
Them and Keep Them Even.
As a fact, says the author, our lower
limbs are not usually both of exactly
the same length, though tbey are so for
all practical purposes. Tbe left Is usu-,
ally the longer, though tbe gait is uot
notably influenced by tbls fact. At
birth the lower limbs are shorter than
the upper, and their movements are
rather of tbe prehensile type. "We are
not born leggy like tbe foal or kangaroo, but we gradually achieve leggl-
ness." Tbe bones Increase ln length, not
so much by interstitial deposit as by
addition to tbelr ends—tbat is, by progressive ossification of the layer of cartilage which Intervenes between the
end of tbe shaft and tbe epiphysis. Ossification goes on till tbe component
parts of tbe bone are all united by bony
matter, and thus the stature of tbe Individual Is determined.
If from Inflammation or Injury an
epiphysis be damaged, one limb may be
shorter tban tbe other, or Inflammatory
stimulation may even Induce an Increased length In the bone affected. Tbe
skeletons of tortoises, not being sub*
Jected to sudden Jars, have no epiphyses at the ends of the long bones,
whereas In the leaping frog tbe extremities of tbe humerus and femur long remain as separate epiphyses. The continuous concussions to which tbe ends

by Its own natural spirit to run about
are doubtless of great value In assisting the growth In length of tbe lower
limbs, wblcb soon lose their Infantile
character and become adapted for running and walking. By exposing the
lower limbs to tbe same Influences and
resistances during tbelr entire growth
we manage to maintain them of tbe

epiphyses at the Joints may be considered favorable to growth.
The Oleneron* Uses to Whieh Henry

In bis "Eccentricities of Genius" Major Pond says that often while traveling Henry Ward Beecber Improved bis
time by having wbat be called "a general bousecleanlng" of bis pockets,
which would get loaded up wltb letters
and papers until tbey could bold no
more, wben be would clear tbem out
and destroy such papers as were worth-
On one occasion Beecber happened
to put bis hand in the watcb pocket
of bts pantaloons and found tbere a
little envelope wblcb be opened. Wben
he saw Ita contents, be called Major
Pond to sit beside blm and remarked:
"You remember tbe evening 1 married

And so In a day or two Mr. Beecber

Making Steel Halls.
The rail mill presents many pictures
ibat appeal strongly to lovers ot the
picturesque. Under ordinary circumstances the great strands of Iron, each
half as long as a city block, slide back
aud forth smoothly enough between
the rolls that are stretching them and
pressing them into the required shape
jut a tiny obstacle may at any moment
turn one of these cables of fire off the
beaten track and twist It into a hope-
less tangle or wind lt like a squirming
snake around some unfortunate workman.
When the rolling process bas been
completed, the piece of Iron slides along
to the great buzzsaws, which cut it up
Into tbe 30 foot rails known to the railway traveler. Every time tbe whirring
circular saw clips off one of these
lengths, sparks radiate in every dlrec- '

When the rail has been cooled and

Anaemia, or thin, watery blood, is increasing to an alarming extent among the school girls and young women of our
land. Pale gums, tongue and eyelids, muscular weakness, inability for exertion, deficient appetite, impaired digestion, short
breath, palpitation of the heart, attacks of vomiting, swooninir,
hysteria and irregularities ol the feminine organs are among the
unmistakable symptoms of anaemia or poor qualify of blood.
Anzemic persons are frequently said to be going into a de-
dine, and as a fact do usually contract consumption or some
fatal constitutional disease if they neglect to restore normal
vigor. Fresh air, sunlight, moderate exercise and the regular
use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food after each meal will restore new
vitality to the body and new color to the cheek of any anaemic
person. Gradually and thoroughly it forms new red corpuscl-
in the blood and wins back perfect health and strength.

Advice to Others.
Conboyville, Ont., Sept. 23.—(Special)—Mrs. Edward Patterson of this
town is ono of those who can testify to tho lasting nature of c-jres by
Dodd's Kidney Pills, the great Canadian remedy for all affections of ths.
Mrs. Edward Patterson, according
to her own statement, is today in
splendid health. Her rheumatism has
loft her. and although it is ten years
since then, it has never returned beyond a slight touch in cold weather,
which a Dodd's Kidney Pill or two
immediately drives away. This proves
what lias always been claimed—that
Hodd's Kidney pills cure permanently. Their effects are lasting—in fact
they do not merely relieve—(they cure.
Here is Mrs. Patterson's letter :
"It is many years, perhaps ten or
twelve, since 1 started taking Dodd's
Kidney Pills, and then it was not
for Rheumatism that I took them.
I was feeling miserable and did not
know what ailed me, aad while reading a paper I saw the testimony of
some one who had been cured by
Dodd's Kidney Pills, who had been
feeling just as I was. I got a box
ar.d found they helped me. I found
nlso that my rheumatism was not
neurly as bad, for I had sufiered for
many years, especially in cold weather. I have used dozens of bottles
of medicines and liniments, but It always returned until I used Dodd's
Kidney: Pills nnd now I seldom have
a touch of it. I occasionally get a

Watchful    Mothers Can    Ks*.*p   Their
Babies Healthy, l'osy-(.'heeked
and Happy.
Nothing in the world is such a
comfort, nnd joy as a healthy, hearty
rsssy-cheeked, happy baby.
Bahie-s can be kept in perfect heiilth
only by having at hand and administering when needed some purely vegetable, harmless remedy, nnd of all
this class of medicines Baby's Own
Tablets are conceded to be the best.
For constipation, colic, diarrhoea,
simple fevers, sour stomachs, teething babies, indigestion and sleeplessness, these tablets are a r.'ally won-
ihrful cure. You can *{'ve them to
the smallest baby without the slightest fear. Dissolved in water, they
will be taken readily. They contain
absolutely not a particle of opiate
or other injurious drugs. Thoy ore
small, sweet lozenges that any t-nby
will take without ssbjection, n*ul
their action is prompt and pleasant.
They will tone up the whole system
and make tho little one as hearty
and free from infantile disorders as
any mother could wish.
Sirs. Halter Brown, Mllby, Que.,
suys: "I have never used any medicine for baby that did him so much
good as Baby's Own Tablets. I
would not be without them." This
Is the verdict of all mothers who
have us«l those tablets.
They cost 25 cents a box. All
druggists sell them or they may be
secured by sending the price direct
und tin* tablets will be forwarded
prepaid. The Ur. Williams' Medicine

Pink Pills. When my daughter, Lena,
(now thirteen years of age) began
the use of your medicine, a little
over a year ago, she was in a most
wretched condition. In fact we were
seriously alarmed lest sho might not
recover. Tho first symptoms were a
feeling of langour and wenkn.'ss.
gradually growing worse. She became pule, lost flesh, had little or no
appetite and wus apparently going
into a decline. Finally the troul.l.*
became complicated with a persistent
sore throat, which gave her grs'al
difficulty in swullowing. I gave her
several ndvertiFed medicines, but
they did not boneli', her. Then she
WU placed under tlit* caro of a doe-
tor, who said her blood was poor
and watery, and hor whole sysli'in
badly run down. The doctor's treatment did not help her any and then,
acting on tho advice of a neighbor, I
began to givo her Dr. Williams' I'ink
Pills. The confidence with which this
medicine was urged upon us was not
iiiisp!o.ivsl. as I soon noticed a distinct, improvement in my datights-r's
condition. Tho use of the pills for a
few weeks longer seemed lo completely restore her and trom (hat
time she has been a cheerful, light-
hearted girl, the very picture of
health. I will always recommend Dr.
Willlums' Pink Pills to other sun. r-
ers, feeling sure they will prove quite
as otllcacious as they did in my
daughter's enso.
Mothers with growing daughters
will make no mistako if Oiey insist

After the result of the general elections in Nova Scotia, Wednesday,
.whan only two Conservatives were
, elected, the Liberals are more than
. anxious to get party lines drawn in
B.C., believing this province to be of
i kindred mind to the land of blue
(noses.   If so, what's the use.
Under general  conditions it requires three tons of dry ore to flux
one of wet   Such being the cas%and
the Slocan City division possessing
the leading dry ore deposits of the
province, there is a ready market for
..every pound of mineral produced in
the camp, the demand, In fact, being
far greater than the visible supply.
As a result of smelter competition,
freight and treatment charges have
. been greatly reduced, the reductions
t made amounting to a fair profit on
.ordinary mining.   Tbe attention of
.investors is particularly drawn to
.this fact.   If you don't believe it,
,eome and see for yourself.
Inquiries of a responsible nature
are being made of the possibilities of
, the camp with a view to establishing
.a smelter here, being a direct outcome of tbe agitation started some
. time ago looking to that end.   Certain Information has been asked for
and supplied on behalf of English
.capital, and an agent of the firm is
to arrive here shortly to size up the
situation.   The scheme in contemplation is one similar to that in use on
.the Broken Hill mine, Australia, the
primal factor being electricity,   It Is
.meeting with  remarkable   success
.there and It is held would do the
aame here.   Ample water power is
available for the cheap generation of
electricity and the city has room to
■pare for a Bite.   Thc movement on
•foot is bona tide and if Slocan can
make her pretensions good, a smelter
will be established here beyond a
, doubt.    .
The Boundary mines have shipped
from January  1 to September 24
'264,400 tons of ore, at a valuation of
$l,s5sS6,448.   In the same time the
Slocan mines have shipped 17,200
tons, worth in round figures, $1,893,-
,000.   The former tonnage Is from
gold-copper mines and tbo latter from
^despised silver propositions,   Bonn
,dary mines have smelters and em
ploy, directly and indirectly, thou
,sands of men. Slocan has no smelter
and employs merely hundreds of
men—yet compare the profits being
made.   Boundary requires expensive
machinery and hoisting plants,while
other expenditures are called  for
which are unknown Ip the Slocan.
/.Some of the cleanest-and quickest
'.money made in the province is being
taken out of the silver mines of the
.&locan.    Boundary may  have the
•tonnage, but the leading white metal
(camp will continue to hold tho values

Rumored Amalgamation.
Reports have come in this week
again that the amalgamation of the

been effected by Ernest Mansfield.
It is also stated the Warner Miller

thrown in, making a combined capital of $5,000,000. Nothing definite
has yet come to hand on the subject,
