who had sat with the old board would
be of great help in settling the matters pertaining to thu mill site, anil
they would Ihi easily able to cope with
all the troubles beforo them. Some
matters coining up for action would
doubtless cause anxiety and cnll for
much care, but the council would lie
aide to accomplish much good for the
city. There were a number of improvements to be advocated this year, such
as waterworks, electric light, and an
adequate system of lire protection.
These wero all required and it was
within the power of the city to adopt
them. If tlie aldermen would all pull

Special IMsstBtltig  ll.l.l   on I.isat Tuesday
A special meeting of the board of
trade wa.s held in the city hall Tuesday evening, there being a very fair
attendance of members. President
York was in the chair.
A letter was read from the Kaslo
board of trade, asking for the endor-
satioB of action by the government for
the relief of the silver-lead industry.
Thechairinan explained the board had
onee before done this and the same
telegraphed W. A. Galliher. M.P., at
Ottawa. J. O. McCallum spoke to the
question and said it would do no harm
to re-ailirm their stand. He accordingly moved,seconded by J.A. Anderson, that this board heartily endorses
the resolutions recently adopted by
the silver-lead mineowners at Sandon.
J. E. Durand, Victoria, wrote, re-
quos»tiii.'*r all available information on
tne volume of business transacted
here and the extent of mining oiiera-
tions in the camp, as the Crown Bunk
of Canada was desirous of opening a
branch here. President. York stated
he had received a communication on
the same lines from C. K. Niell, supervisor of the Royal Batik. Ho urged
immediate action on the matter, as it
was very desirous a bank should lx*
established here. There was sufficient
business offering to warrant, a bank
coming aud it would prove a great
convenience aud benefit. The subj.x-t
was thoroughly discussed and the
president and secretary appointed a
ciuuniitee t:i draft and forward the
nocessary information.
Various amendments were authorised to In' made in the bylaws of the
board: Reducing the number of a
quorum from nine to five; changing
siate of regular meetings from monthly
to quarterly; and reducing number of
the executive from 15 to t>.
J. (J. McCallum spoke of the nuisance riaused by railway cars blocking
the crossings on Arthur street and at
the wharf. Thes icretarywas instructed to notify Sopt. Downie and ask to
have the nuisance abated.
The secretary reported having invited the Interior Press Association to
hold their next annual meeting iu Slocan.   Ordered endorsed.
Meeting adjourned.
Coitipltsssrnlniy Supper.
A very pleasant affair took place at
the Royal Hotel on Monday evening,
being a complimentary supper tendered by Mavor York to tin* members of
the outgoing and incoming councils,
city officials and the village scribe.
The repast was most tasteful, splendidly served and, needless to say.
heartily enjoyed. Toasts, spes-cli-
niaking and ringing followed,combining to give f-ood entertainment The
burthen of the several excellent talks
was that of harmony, united action
and determination to make Slocan a
place renowned for its enterprise and
steady progress. The supper was a
marked sustjoass, and before separating
the   company    returned   emphatic
thanks to his worship for his hospitality and for the pleasure derived.

J. Frank Collom,managing director
of the Arlington and Speculator properties, returned from his eastern and
Citlifiii-iiiau trip on Tuesday. On his
way iu he spent several days in Spokane, consulting with Prof. Talks
upon the question of the mill about to
bs erected at the Arlinj*ton for (lii-
treatment of its ores. The plans and
specifications of the mill will lie finished iu a few days and Mr. Colloffl is
busy getting things in shape for its
oarly construction. He is firmly con-
vinci'd of the success of the processes
the experiments carried out by Prof.
Parks have been most searching and
thev leave no room for doubt. There
will be several hundred thousand feet
of lumber consumed in the i'i.'ctioii of
the mill.

W. Tattersall caui" down from the
Myrtle group, at the hend of Twelve

fine ore. The main shaft has lvoen
sunk SO feet and a crosscut is now be* |
Ing driven to reach the other wall ofl
the vein.   Fifty feet has been penetrated and the drift la still In ledge |
matter. More or less ore is carried all
the way across, being similar in character to the Arlington. Four men aro
working and they will continue development until May 1. The new sleigh
road to the Ottawa greatly benefits
the Myrtle, as a half mile of level
trail would connect tho two properties,
so ensuring easy communication.

at Nelaaii.
Members of the Interior Press Association of British Columbia met in annual conclave in the board of trade
rooms, Nelson, on the I8th,and placed
their organization on a firm and last
ing liasis. The attendance was larger
than at any previous meeting, F. J.
Deane, Nelson, being in the ehair.and
with Thos. McNaught, Halcyon, as
secretary. Two sessions of the association were held, that of the morning
being devoted to reports and the perfecting of the details of organization;
while-that of the afternoon dealt with
matters pertaining to the good and
welfare of the craft.
The association was formed less
than one year ago, with a tnenilx'rship
of three, and today it niiinliers 2f>,with
the certainty of very shortly embracing every paper on the Mainland rf
the province, the Island men so far
evincing no interest in the scheme.
The work accomplished at the Nelsc n
conference was of the utmost importance and will result beneficially to the
fraternity. At later meetings the wi rk
will lie continued, until the newspa* er
men are welded into a solid body for
the advancement and protection of
their calling.
The financial report showed a
healthy balance on hand, with no liabilities. Those elected as officers for
the ensuing year were: President, F.
J. Deane, Nelson; vice, Fred Simpson.
Cranbrook- sec.-treas. T. McNaught.
Halcyon; executive committee Win.
Mac Adams, Saudon; J. D. Taylor,
New Westminster; C. E. Race, Rossland: E. A. Haggen, Revelstoke; W.
B. Wilcox, Phoenix; and C. E. Smith-
eringalo. Slocan. Invitations for holding the next annual meeting were received from the boards of trade at
Cranbrook. Slocan and Phoenix, but
it was decided to leave the matter iu
the han Is of the executive.
A pleasing feature of the conference
was the oourtesy of the C.P.R., who
placed their telegraph wires at the free
disposal of the association, which was
very much appreciated. The members were ss-rved with a tiptop lunch
at the Nelson cafi\ Aspiring politicians, if wise, will get close to the
Press Association as early as possible,
in view of probable contingencies in
the near future.

Since the meeting of the board of

and for long the twsi remained discussing lhe engrossing subject in all
its hearings; Kats*. occupied wiih the
inevitable darning, strained her s>nrs
to catch one won! about the note
received that afternoon; she listened
in vain. Mary had quite forgotten
her anxiety to know when John was
coming back. Twice Kale essayed to
usk the simple question—the words
died on her lips, she could not steady
her voice to utter them. When she
was in her own room preparing for
lhe night, she caught sight of a
white face reflected in her mirror.
She stood there looking angrily into
the eyes lhat met tier's—" Vou know
you do not core." she informed her
reflection with tierce emphasis. Suddenly she flung herself upon her
kni'es by the bedside. "Oh. 1 cars*—
1 do care!" moaned Kate.
Mr. Ferris left early on the following day to join his brother min-
ists>.rs at QleueBBle. After his departure, Mary cleared the parlour table,
and mude elaborate preparations for
letter writing. She arranged her
writing case, pen. ink, pai>er, and a
dictionary; placed another book before her to serve as a prop for
Gavin's photograph; and thon, opening her case, she spread upon the
table his two letters, ami a small
select'on she hud made of newspaper
cuttings which had direct or indirect reference to him.
Having carefully examined his letters ami the newspaper notices, she
spent some time in studying his portrait: then she dipped her pen in the
ink and paused. A glance at the
letters showed that he addressed her
—"Dearest Mary:" she wrote "Dear-
cst"—feared   it   looked   too      di'inon-
etrative—destroyed that, sheet of
paper, and begun "My dear Gavin,"

some reminiscence of him so absorbing that she laid down her pen to

sad Kute listlessly. "I have not

The weariness n h.*r voice drew

forecasting with accuracy its proB*
able end. Just now she had been
stunned: sho feared the agony of reviving sensation, but she still moro
feared ignorance as to the nature
nnd extent of her misfortune.
One thing was certain—she could
not continue to suffer tnus. She could
not endure to spend night, after
night sobbing by her bedside: nor
to live through days in which Hope
—cruel Hope—inextinguishable Hope
—rose, mocked at Reason, fed itss-lf
OU Fancy, grew, flourished, entranced, deluded, and then fell to tlie dust
drugging her with it,
"Let mo only tell myself the
truth," cried Kate in desperation,
"and I must, for very shame, get
quit, of all this misery. Here is the
truth: I who am no ignorant child,
have nllows»d myself to lovo a mnn
who never cared for me and never
will—never cared for me und never
will!" The proud girl writhed as
she stabbed herself afresh Willi each
recital of her humiliation. There
wha no doubt of her having faced
the truth: alas, alas, tho misery remained.
The Overton crofts toward which
she walked, lay behind Main's of
Overton. To reach them, she hint
first to travel the Oarleigh road,
and then a long and exceedingly
rough path leading to tho summit of
a steep hill on whoso further slopes
wore the crofts. Kate knew their
inmates well, and had been wont to
visit them regularly and frequently.
Six months had now elapsed since
her last visit: she told herself that
sho ought to feel compunction because of this neglect, yet she felt
none. Neither Was she conscious of
her fatigue. The path seemed perhaps to have grown longer and
rougher, as she stumbled, slipped,
scrambled forward, without her usual swiftness and sureness of foot
Fatigue overcame her, nevertheless
She could scarcely drag herself to the
lop of the hill: gaining it, she was
forced to pause, gasping for breath,
dlc***y with the quick faint beating of
her heart.
Upon the crofts lying scattered bt>
ni'ath her, she had often looked with
intense interest, while her ready imagination pictured for her the de-
lulls of the lives lived in them—
lives so destitute of luxuries, of comforts, even of necessities; lives that
were one long buttle for bread; liws
narrowed down ta limits that seemed stifling to Kato; and withal, lives
that wore, in the majority of cases,
noble, courageous, triumphant.
The women in those crofts interested her chiefly. Contrasting their
surroundings with her own, she bent
her head in wonder and reverence at
the sight of their unswerving allegiance to duty, their patient endurance, their unquestioning resignation. It was an intense gratification to her to know that on many
occasions she had been able to carry-
consolation and sunshine into the
hearts of some of theso women. They
all loved her: they gave her high
praise when they said of her to one
another, "Oor young lady isna a
lady at a'; she micht be one o' hiz!"
To-day, Kate looked down upon
the crofts with dull indifference. If
she went there consolation would be
looked for—sho had none to communicate: sympathy would be dc-
inanded—her heart fflt dead. She
could not face theso Vonun slu*.
who had never come Satipty hearted
to them before! She Hesitated, rs*-
tracs'd her steps for a yard or two,
und only paused on realizing that
she wns too tireil to go home without resting souu-where. She turned
to look back nt the cottages: "I
can't go there." she gasped, "they
will want me to ri*ad the Bible tss
them and sing hymns. I can't do
it: something must be dead in me: I
can't  do iti"
With difficulty slie made inr way
down the steep hillside to n wood,
where she Seated herself on the moss
at the foot of one of Ills' tree- The
wood Ss*emed to swim before h'*r, slu*
saw everything as through .i thick
mist ami from a long distance. She
sat there so still, that a squirrel

a few seconds before he darted to a

nmong the tree-tops: pccas'onallv the
low crooning of wood pigeons    was
heard, vaned by thoso Strang) cranking sounds that the pine tr. - make

A foreign scientific journal gives
tho results of some recent experiments upon the vocal cords which
will prove interesting to singers. A
baritone who wished to become it
tenor succeeded by taking a course
of Inhalations,, beginning with benzoin, going on to cafeine and chloroform, nnd ending with curacou,while
thu voice was deepened by using vol-
uti/.i'il  Norwegian  tar.
There are plenty of people who
have become deproSaed and discouraged i because thut dry, hacking
cough hangs to thorn continually.
They have taven much medicine,
mostly of the advertised quack sort,
nothing like Dr. August Koenig's
Hamburg Breast, Tea, the discovery
of a then noted German physician li<>
years ago. We do not say that this
will cure a case where the lungs are
bally diseased, for it will not. and
up to this date, there is nothing
that will cure under these conditions;
but on the other band, if the lungs
are not hard hit, the patient should
take Ur. August Koenig's Hamburg
llreust Tea. a cup full every night on
going to bed, have it hot, drink
slowly, then every other night, rub
the throat and top portion of the
lungs with St. Jacob's Oil, cover
with oil silk, let il, remain an hour,
then remove. Eat good, plain, nourishing fnoil, live in ths* open air as
much us possible. By all means sleep
as near out of doors as possible,that
is, windows wide open, except in the
very seven* weather. Take n cold
sponge bath every morning ; then hums diately nib (he body with a coarse
towel. Tnke Dr. August Koenig's
Hamburg Drops every other day ao-
cording to directions. One can buy
the three remedies for 11.38 of any
reliable druggist. Begin the treatment at once, and see how much better you will be almost within a
week's time.

The most Important occurrence this
week was the order issued by tho
Canadian Pacific ruilwuy to its
agents, last Thursday, not to accept
further shipments ot grain for Fort
William. Thc reason given was that
there was enough wheat now in transit to fill tho elevators at that point.
The repairs and enlargement of elevator D are not completed yet, but
It is expected this elevator will bo
ready in about ten days, when shipments to Fort William will bo resumed. Tho capacity of elevator D wil)
bo 8,-000,000 bushels. The Canadian
Northern elevator at Port Arthur i«
also about filled up, but that company expects to havo its new 3,000,-
000 bushel elevator ready ln r. tow
days. The new Canadian l'acilic railway elevator F., under construction
at Fort William, wj'i not be ready
for some time yet.

Indian Brook, Victoria Co., N. S.,
Jan. 12.—(Special)—Angus 1). Mc-
Donald, son of the postmaster here,
is prominent among those In thla district who swear by Hodd's Kislney
Pilln aa a sure cure for those terrible pains in the back that nro one
of the surest symptoms of Kidney
Disease. And Mr. McDonald has good
reason for the stand he takes.
While at work in the coal pits he
strained his back and was sent home
in an agony of pain. The nearest
doctor, twenty-five miles away, was
sent for, but he could do little to
relieve his suffering. This was in
October, 1901, and he couldn't do a
hand's turn of work till the spring
of 11102,
Then a hotelkcoper advised him to
try Dodd's Kidney Pills That hotelkcoper didn't see him again until
last August, anil then his first question was : " Angus, how's your
back ?" "As well as ever it was,"
answered Angus. "What cured it?"
""Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me completely."
And the postmaster at Indian
Ilrook is always ready tsi testify to
the truth of his son's statement.
l'nins in the Hack, Lumbago,Rheumatism, Dropsy gnd Heart Disease
are caused by diseased kidneys,
Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure them,
Despite the . efforts of, Winnipeg
wood dealers to keep up the price ol

From the Bureau of Provincial In-

advertising stuff for British Columbia
is being issued. It is a pamphlet
embodying a lecture delivered in London, Eng., last November by Hon. J.

readable compilation and presents the
advantages of the country to the intending settler, traveler, and capitalist
in an attractive,yet plain and striking.

National  spirit   is  developing   in
Canada   on   a sound   ami healthful
basis.    It  finds expression in resolutions passed by various boards of trade
in the enst, urging the government to
[build and equip a railway, to the Pacific coast, so shutting off the piratical
demands of private monopolies of the
Grand Trunk Pacific calibre.   Public
opinion, irrespective of party politics,
would support Minister Blair were he
to extend the Intercolonial  to tidewater on  the  west.    Why let private
(corporations supplant the government ?
An object lesson in the practical
benefits derived from consistent nud |
persistent advertising is exemplified in
the words of Col. Pope, recently appointed receiver for the American Bicycle Co., a concern which has lately
made a skyrocket entry into bankruptcy: "The cessation of advertising
killed the bicycle business, and the
way to revive it is to resume that same
important matter. I thoroughly l>e-
lieve in it. You can set; how I feel in
the matter when I tell you that I
spent JfiOO.OOO in oue year in tbat sort
of publicity, and tlmt is my idea for |
the future—to advertise."
