An alternative ])lan for a waterworks system for the town,other than
that of tin- familiar (lout ereek
scheme, has been suggested by A.
Vork, and it is meeting with favor
union;- tlie citizens. Mr. York's plan
is to utilize tlie water of Uie lake as
a source of supply, with n large re
servoir on the heights to the east of
the lake. A pumping Station would
be installed on tlie. lakeshore ami the
water obtained from a depth of 100
feet, ensuring a plentiful supply of
pure and wholesome water. Power
for pumping would be obtained from
the Springer falls by means of a pipe
and relton wheel, or else bv the generation of electricity itself tit the falls
to drive the pumping machinery.
This would do away with a costly
steam apparatus and reduce the ini-
ttal cost anil operating expenses to a
minimum. From the reservoir a
principal main could be laid throughout any portion of the town, and it
would be revenue producing from
the moment it entered the corporation. Any head desired could be obtained for pressure and would be effective at any point of the system, it
need be, a supplementary main could
be run from the Springer falls, so as
to get a further supply of water in
the men getting out timber to lav off,
Other properties suffered in the same
respect. As vet there has been very
little indication of spring in the hills.
COMING TO BRITISH COI.UM11IA.
A party of students in mining from
.M<-< iill University, Montreal, will
visit British Columbia this summer.
The students in the department of
mining in this university are accustomed to study the geological characteristics of different parts of the
country* Formerly, the eastern parts
oi Canada and the statu of Pennsylvania have bei'ti visited. This vear
thev come to British Columbia, The
anthracite mines east of the Rockies
will be visited; and a day will be devoted to the Selkirks, wherethc great
glacier will be inspected. Most of the
week to be spent on Vancouver
Island will be devoted to the study
uf the c ml mines near Nanaimo. On
the return trip, the first place visited
will be the Arrow lakes, when the
company will afterwards visit the
Sandon and .Slocan City catnps: inspecting the silver-lead and dry ore
mines. ' A week will be spent at
Rossland.and another will bt; devoted
to the Boundary country. The party
will travel homo, via Nelson,stopping
at«everal places in the mining dis
triets of East Kootenay, and at the
coal mines in the Crow's Nest.
The class will consist of about 20
students, in charge of Dr. J: B, Porter, professor of mi in?, and Dr. F.
Adams, professor of geology. Each
student will receive a printed outline
ofthe points to be noted in each class
of mine and smelter visited. As the
train travels, informal lectures will
be given on the geological characteristics ofthe country through which it

as the ledge, which widened out to
three feet, was gradually getting
more mineralized. The samples
brought down show hardly any zinc.
The strike comes at. an opportune
time, ;ts the heads of tlio syndicate
are to be in next week.

American capitalist is easier influenced for investment in mining propositions, and he is more willing io take
chances, His idea of mine management and development lends itself
more readily to local demands, the
result being a larger percentago of
success and less of failure than is
generally the lot of his European
rival. An American manages his
property on the ground; the European
dictates his policy 'rom abroad.
That is where the secret of success
lies, and that is why the Slocan City
division is advancing through the
efforts ofthe American investor.

HER
LOVER
WAS
A LEPER
The unearthing of two skeletons In
an abandoned stone quarry in the Pall
pass, near Honolulu, recently brought
to light one of the saddest romances In
the world's history.
One year ago it would have been
hard to find a happier pair of lovers
than Lllikol and Keewainahl. They
were soon to be married. The girl was
exceptionally pretty, and kind fortune
had smiled pleasantly if not generously on the young man. They were
greatly envied among the villagers in
that beautiful suburb of Honolulu, Le-
naukikl.
Then came the awakening and with
It the sad tragedy that had for Its ending the bones found below the Tali
pass.
Every arrangement for a big feast In
honor of the coming nuptials bad been
CLIMllKD CLIFF TOOKTIIKH.
made when Keewamahi was taken
with a slight touch of fever. Nothing
was thought of it, but aa be wanted to
get cured quickly be visited one of the
doctors.
Then came the terrible discovery.
The young Kanaka was a leper.
He was Immediately hurried to a
hospital and quarantined.
His promised wife came to the hospital day after day, always asking
that she be permitted to see Keewamahi, only to be told again and
again that this could not be. Her lover was a leper and Incurable.
More than this, the doctors told the
young girl that her lover must soon be
sent to Molokal, the leper settlement, a
city more weird and terrible than tha
city of everlasting night, more horrible than any city of fiction—one place
where of a truth all who enter must
leave hope behind and live the rest of
their lives In waiting.
Again the girl pleaded tbat she might
join ber Intended husband, happy indeed to share with him that last long
siege of waiting for tbe end, greater
agony than which It Is Impossible for
the mind to conceive. It was but another proof that tbe women of Hawaii
are tbe women of all the world—ready
to sacrifice life, comfort everything,
for a love tbat knows no parting.
In the meantime the dread disease
was making lu ravages. It was altogether hopeless, as the doctors said
Keewamahi tried to take his life, but
the attempt waa not successful. When
Lllikol heard that he bad tried to kill
himself, she smiled. To her parents
sbe aald, "We will be together soon."
In vain her parents and friends tried
to prove to her, ns the doctors had
done, tbat It was all hopeless, and sbe
could do nothing for the man she loved, and the only right thing to do was
to try and forget him.
The time for tbe leper's removal to
Molokal drew near.
Each night, so her parents will tell
you, she used to go out to the old
trystltig place and wait for ber lover
to return. "Her mind was affected,"
was what every one said, as they generally do when It is the heart that Is
breaking.
Tbe rest of this story must of necessity lack any details. But the suppositions are such tbat they cannot be
misunderstood.
Notwithstanding tbe vigilance of the
hospital officials love laughed at locksmiths at Honolulu, just as it has
laughed at them till over the world,
and Keewamahi was a free man, or,
more correctly speaking, he was a
free leper, which Is a very different
thing. Well be knew that tomorrow
be would be hunted and tracked like
a wild beast and what he bad to do
be must do quickly.
That same evening Lllikol left her
borne to go to tbe old try sting place
Just as sbe had done for so many
nights.
She never returned, and her whereabouts were a complete mystery until
with the finding of 'tie bones was
enough of her clothes to prove that,
separated in their life, in their death
tbey were again united.
Although no one remembers seeing
them on that last night, the final chapter In this snd romance is as clear ns
the Hist, that dealt with serenades,
variegated lanterns, the Indescribable
beauty with which nature decorates
this garden spot of all the world and
adds the restfulness of the blue sea
that stretches out into the far beyond.
At last there came a night when,
as Lilikoi had said, her lover arrived.
In what particulars It differed from
the nights of a happy past or In what
particular It was the same no one can
say. There was at least one difference.
This night there was no parting.
The long promised "tomorrow" had
come for both the leper and his sweet
heart, and they knew that there could
never be another one.
Only two choices were possible, Mo.
lokal and separation—death and meet
Ing the end together.
Together they climbed the steep road
that hangs to the great side of the Pall
pass almost as do the vines with thelt
little tendrils to the sheer face of tht
rock.
Here It was that Kamehameha, the
great Napoleon of the nawnlians,
fought and conquered the laBt staud ol
the great King Oahu.
Little more need be added.
Kamehameha climbed the Pall pass
and brought abotlt the conquest of thc
Island.
Keewamahi and his sweetheart
climbed thc pass and conquered leprosy
and separation.
Who can any which was tbe greatei
victory?
EVER DREADED
BY THE MARINER
The Floating Dtrtlict and the
Iceberg Fruitful of
Disaster.
As an outcome of the Bourgogne disaster the French government has announced Its Intention of co-operating
with Uncle Sam in devising means foi
preventing loss of life at sea.
It Is high time that something were
done to circumvent thc awful mortality of the sea. The United States hy*
drographlc office In Washington has
among its records a list of the greatest
ocean disasters of the last 00 years.
These comprise mostly the sinking of
steamers, of which 23 carried with
them to the bottom over 7,000 passengers. If the whole "mortality of the
ocean could be computed. If we could
find out the number of all those unfortunates who have sunk with the
fishing boats, the merchantmen, the
fraos and junks of all nations Into thc
great water maw of the earth, they
would be found to comprise a greater
number of souls annually than are necessary to populate a city of the third
class. No wonder Uncle Sam maintains a great bureau In Washington,
with worldwide connections, for the
special purpose of guarding the highways of the ocean.
To sit and scan the reports of the
office is to have one's feelings harrowed
by sea tales so full of suggest!veness
that one has a great yearning to go
help the unfortunates or an unhealthy
desire to view the greatest catastrophe
or a wild eagerness to suggest the local color of scenes which the rules of
office allow the hydrographer to describe only In severely brief and technical language.
These show uncharted rocks against
which any vessel might unwittingly
strike, whistling buoys broken from
their moorings and luring to destruction, floating spars like battering rams,
enormous Icebergs and other menaces
to navigation.
Add to these tbe well known peril of
the derelict and we have a truly
formidable list of tbe "inanimate" obstructions to navigation.
Tbe plan of the two governments Is
to stimulate the Interest already taken
FOBS OF TUB BAILOR.
by Inventors by offering further to reward every mnn who sball devise
means for maklug ocean travel safer
than It Is now.
In consequence the United States
patent office has recorded an Increased
number of patents for communicating
between ships at night or In foggy
wenther. for wiirnlug vessels away
from rocky coasts or from lee shores,
for patent bulkheads, for life buoys,
for uiislnkable lifeboats, etc. If one-
hulf of the d6vlccs prove successful In
practice. It will be virtually Impossl-
hlo for a great ocean disaster to occur
again.

UNCLE SAM'S SPOTTERS.
Enpeeiallr the Man In Europe. Who
Looks Ont Por Smnarn-lerst.
"Uncle Sam's large nnd well organized secret service," says S. H. Adams
In Alnslce's, "Is made up mostly of
men who come properly under the
head of detectives with police powers,
but It has its class of bona fide spotters, whose entire duty it is to ingratiate tb-'inselves with persons suspected
of having designs to evade the custom
house duties nnd to waru tho baggage
Inspectors ot this end of the Impending swindle.
"In cleverness, address and adaptability the secret service spotter Is easily at the head of his profession and
even ranks With the trained experts of
the European diplomatic corps. It Is
essential that be should be a man of
the world, for be must associate with
all kinds of people on equal terms. He
has no fixed abode, but lives in various European capitals when he Is
not on shipboard, where he Is much of
the time. He must never let himself
be In thc slightest degree suspected.
"There Is always a number of these
agents in Paris, because of tbe great
American trade there. They live at
the fashionable hotels and live the life
apparently of flaneurs and boulevar
dlers. In all lines of trade that concern
dutiable goods tbey are experts, and
no large purchase by an American In
Paris Is unknown to tbem. Their circle of acquaintance is enormous, but
nobody knows them for what they are.
Lu one way or another they contrive
to make the acquaintance of any person whom they suspect and unostentatiously but unremittingly trail him.
"Many a time some man who has
made a heavy purchase of diamonds
or laces and so disposed tbem that
be felt sure of being able to get tbem
through the port undiscovered has
been passed on the dock by a chance
acquaintance of the voyage over who.
unseen, presses a little note Into tbe
band of the customs Inspector. Thnt
note tells all that the wily smuggler
would wish to keep secret, and his
baggage Is mercilessly ransacked until
the bidden articles are brought to
light He has been followed over by
the spotter. Men employed In this Hue
get good pay—as high aa $10 a day—
but It costs tbem much to live In the
manner lu which they must maintain themselves."

Speaking of tlie Inte William Travett
leads me to remark tbat so far as I
am personally aware, only one of the
classic stuttering stories about him Is
actually true. I had the honor and
happiness to reside at Newport for a
year or so once, and at the time Mr.
Travers was a summer resident there.
He certainly stuttered a good deal, but
he did not go around habitually discharging staccato witticisms at the
world, as you might suppose be did
from all tbe stories you bear. But the
one story tbat I know about Is this
one:
Travers was at a garden party one
afternoon when a young lady said ta
him. "What time Is it please, Mr.
Travers?"
Travors took out his watch, wabbled
his mouth awhile, blinked and finally
said, "It'll be s-s-s-s-slx o'c-c-c-c-clock
by tbe time I can say Iti"
It really lacked five minutes of fl
when he began.
Sunns- Booms,
It Is said to be true tbat In all hospitals those rooms facing the sun have
fewer deaths, other things being equal,
than those which nre on the shady side
of the house. Likewise statistics, where
they have been kept, prove tbat the average ♦Ime for a recovery is much less
lu a sunny room than In a shady oue,
Prom these facts and from tbe fad
that the tendency toward illness hat
proved greater on the shady side ol
buildings, like prisons and asylums, II
follows that light Is second only lu Importance to fresh air. A dark room is
nearly but not quite so bad as a close
•room. In the case of sickness the sickroom should be tbe sunniest one ths
house affords.

MEXICAN
GIRL'S
WILD
RIDE
Heroine
Of
Sonora
Warned
People
Of
Coming
Flood
To become a heroine and gain wealth
by one bold stroke of daring is thc
good fortune that has come to Eduurda
Stlva, a young Mexican girl of the state
of Sonora. Wheu the Montezuma dam
burst on tbe Hlo de Sonora. she mounted her horse and raced down the valley
before the rushing flood warning the
people of the impending disaster, and
as a reward she has been presented
with a rich share of the Banco mine.
It Is difficult to say just how many
lives Eduarda Silva saved, but she
warned over 200 people, counting those
domiciled at the various ranches, mines
and peon camps. Jim Taylor, superintendent of the Banco mine, declares
that fully half of this number would
have been drowned or seriously injured
bad It not been for the timely warning
she gave them.
On the morning of tbe day on which
the dam burst Eduarda rode up the
south fork of the Rio de Sonora looking
for stray cattle from her father's
ranch. She went along the side of the
dam and at the bulkhead found big
Tom Johnson In charge of four of his
ditch repairers, all of tbem bustling
and sweating to stop wbat looked like
an ordinary little leak In tbe towering
wall of earth, bowlders, Interlaced logs
and sheathing planks.
For 20 minutes the hot work wu
rushed, punctuated with exclamations,
the sound of spanning earth and water
and sharp, quick orders. Then the boss
climbed up to take a glance at the surface of the surcharged dam. When
be came down, be walked directly to
Eduarda.
"Say. little girl.' he said, "we're up
against It hard and no mistake. We
can hold ber for half an hour at the
outside.   Ride like fury and warn the
TOLL SPKKD DOWN THK OOROE.
folks below to rush for tbe bills.
You've got tbe right stuff In you. Now,
skip!" And be pulled out his big silver watch and glanced at the time.
"Half an hour," be muttered, "and
then tbe water'U knock us out"
Eduarda turned her horse and started down tbe gorge that later widened
Into tbe little Mlramar valley, dotted
with several ranches. Romero Hernandez was on bis veranda mending a
■addle when Eduarda dashed up.
"Run for tbe bills," sbe cried; "the
dam Is bursting, and the flood will be
hen Inside half an hour!"
Eduarda dashed on In ber heroic endeavor.
There was method In the way she
zigzagged across the little valley and
took short cuts between huts, houses
and camps. For as she galloped along
at a breakneck pace sbe figured out
which of those she warned could warn
others in turn In their flight to higher
ground.
At the ranch of Miguel Ferrara sbe
secured a fresh horse and continued
her wild ride down the flinty roadbed
of tbe gorge to the collection of frame
bouses, shacks and rude cabins that
marked the shaft, leading to the Banco
mine.
Jim Taylor was In tbe superintendent's office. As Eduarda dashed up
Taylor grunted as she cried her warning, but became a man of action In a
moment He called to half a dozen
men, and the next Instant the entire
camp seemed to know all about the
danger, and men were rushing about,
but rushing In a way that Bhowed they
were preparing to meet the flood.
Tbe ore cars were whistled up, the
ore sent flying helter skelter, nnd the
sick from the hospital were hurriedly
buudled Into the cars and sent up tbe
grade.
Eduarda was crossing the Arroyo
Seco on her way to the Sepulvedas
when she first heard the roar In the air
that told her tbe turbulent wntcrs In
the big Montezuma dam had at last
triumphed over plucky Tom Johnson
and his gang of ditch walkers. But her
work was almost over by that time.
She was now out In the open country,
and only two families living near the
bed of the Sonora were In Immediate
danger. These sbe reached In a straight
gallop over a good road.
And this Is the way Eduarda Silva
cheated the greedy waters of the Montezuma dam and won for herself a
share In the rich Bunco mine.

iis.nl Scold.
Of all forms of hutnnn effort nnd
execution scolding Is the most useless.
When a parrot, a chipmunk, n squirrel
or bluejay scolds he Is ludicrous. For
people to scold Is ludicrous, too, but
with a difference, nnd assuredly the
difference Is ou the unfavorable sltU*.
It never did and never will do any 011a
any good. It hns done much barm.
Besides, scolding grows to he a habit.
We have all suffered because of the
shortcomings of some one else, receiving tremendous tirades over what
we luni uo baud in. because we happened to be present when the scolding
habit was yielded to by one of Its victims.
Scolding Is easy. It takes neither
power of brnln nor heart to scold. It
does not even make nny great draft
upon the physlcnl being. Any fishwife
alive can bt a grand success nt scolding.   Why compete with her?
Scolding should be compelled to perish from the earth. The tongue, the
voice, the eye. the face—nil should be
trained not to scold—yes. and the pen,
for of all things a Scolding pen Is the
worst. And tin* habit once formed
with the pen is apt never to be entirely
shnkeu off.—Asln C. Sweet In Woman's

"The American people are great theater goers nnd spend about IU2.000.000
annually for such amusements," said a
prominent theatrical manager to the
writer recently. "This vnst sum of
money  is  paid  Into  the treasuries of
some 1,000 companies, which wero estimated to be playing 111 all parts of the
United States last year. This Includes
everything that can be considered
strictly professional companies, to say
nothing of the countless amateur organisations.
"Of the strictly theatrical organizations It Is safe to say that the average
receipts per atgbt for the 1.000 companies Is $400 each. At seven performances per week for each company the
weekly average would be $2,.soo. The
average theatrical season Is 40 weeks.
The entire l.ooo companies, with average nightly receipts of $loo. would
produce weekly receipts r.t seven performances per week amounting to $'-'.-
800,000. This multiplied by 40. tho

THE ABILITY OF DR. CHASE
Is Measured by the Cures He Makes—Each
Remedy Specific for Certain Diseases—
A Remarkable Cure of Brlght's Disease.
In this practical age a physician's
ability is measured by the actual
cures he makes. Judged by this high
standard, Dr. Chase stands pre-eminent as a giant among physicians.
Take kidney and liver derangements,
for example. Dr. Chase, by means
of his Kidney-Liver pills, has broughO
about some of the most surprising
cures ever effected. This is due to
the direct and specific action of this
great homo treatment on tho liver
and kidneys. Hero Is the experience
of a highly respected resident of Con-
neon, Ont. :—
Mr. James Dellihunt, Consecon,
Prince Edward County, Ont., writes:
"For several years I suffered great
tortures of mind and body from
Brlght's disease of tho kidneys. The
pains wore sometimes almost beyond
endurance and extended from my
head and between the shoulders down
the whole spinal column and seemed
to concentrate across my kidneys.
My back was nover entirely free from
pain. When I got up In tho morning
I could not st raighti'ii myself ut all,
but would go bent nearly doublo
moat all day.   My water was (scanty
and at other times    profuse, and It
gttve me great pain to urinate.
"I could do no work, and, though
I tried many kinds of kidney pills,
could get no relief. As a lost resort
I was induced by a friend to give Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills a trial. I
felt a change after tho first dose. I
used In all about Ave boxes, and
they havo ontlroly cured me. I have
no pains now and can do as good a
day's work as I ever could, lt is a
pleasure for mo to recommend Dr.
Chaso's Kldney-Llver Pills, as they,
have ib nn* so much for me."
Mr. J. J. Ward, J.P., Consecon, certifies that ha has known Mr. Delli-
hunt for years as a truthful man and
respected citizen, and vouches for the
truth of the abovo statement.
You cannot possibly obtain a more
beneficial treatment for the kidneys
and liver than Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills. It has stood tho test of

greatest kidney medicine," One pill

MOTIONS OF THE HANDS.
flow    the    Railroad   Ticket    Seller
Reads Character In Them.
A ticket seller at nn "L" station
amuses himself by watching the hands
thrust into his little window; not as a
palmist would, studying the shape, the
length of fingers or the joints and measurements. The motions of the hands iu-
terest him.
"Do you Bee that woman on the platform?" he asked. "I'll bet shs^'s a close
one. How do I know? Why, she's been
coming to this station for years. She
never offers more than a dime and puts
out ono finger and at the same time tells
me iu a positive tono 'Just one.' She
holds on to the dime in a lingering way,
as if she bated to turn It loose. I know
she gives it a parting squeeze. And she
siintehs-s the nickel I slide out as if sho
was afraid some one else would try to
set lt.
"Tho impatient man is standing just
behind her. I'd hate to live with him.
He flings his money at me as if it burned his lingers, reaches out for his ticket
and claws at the window ledge it I delay
a moment. Then he snatches it up and
runs through the turnstile. No, it is not
hecuuse he Is la a hurry. He always
does the same way,If there isn't a train
in hearing distance.
"Then there's the generous man. lie
throws down some money, doesn't wait
to count his change and is off. Sometimes he forgets the change and leaves
it. Once he gave me a dollar, got his
ticket and rushed to the train. I saved
the 05 cents for him, and next time I
saw him I gave it to him. But he pushed it back good naturedly and said: 'Oh,
never mind! Buy the baby something
with it and give her my compliments;
she's got an honest daddy.'
"The timid woman puts down her
change in a hesitating fashion.
"And the careless woman—she waits
until she gets to the window to hunt
her change. Then she dives down in ber
pocket book and fumbles about, pulls out
samples aud truck and sometimes drops
her nickel after she succeeds iu finding
it and has to look all over the floor for It,
while the people behind fume and fret.
There's generally something tbe matter
with her gloves.
"The cautious woman gives everybody
the jimjnnis. She takes out her money deliberately and insists on handing it in to
me with precision, which she accomplishes by gingerly putting her thumb and
forefinger through the little hole in my
window. When 1 give her the change, she
counts it carefully, sometimes twice over,
to be sure there is no mistake, and she
never seems aware that she is blocking
the way. She is never in a hurry, and if a
train or two go by while she is getting
this matter straight that doesn't worry
her. Her maxim is one thing at a time,
and she prides herself on not making mistakes.
"Another character In our business is
tbe man who has a good sized bill. He
looms up just as a train Is approaching,
ond the line behind gets as wildly excited
as if tbat was the only one for an hour.
It takes some time to give out the change
and for blm to count it, but he manages
to catch tlie train every time. People behind him don't That's where the trouble conies in.
"Then there is the trnnsfer fiend who
asks a hundred questions about how to
get to a certain place, und then goes over
tlie same conversation with tbe gnteman.
What has Hint to do with hands? Nothing, except that I've been at this stand
many years, and while I don't know the
face of a single one of these individuals
I can tell them by their hands."
1 neonselons lira us ot*.
Neither Bret Harte nor Mark Twain,
when they wrote of the Luck, of MTiss,
of Captain Ned Blnkely. of Buck Fan-
shaw nnd Scotty Brljtgs, had any idea
how great tbey were or even that they
were great nt all. They never dreamed
that these sketches for the local journal
would outlive the week that saw their
birth and at last make the circuit of the
world, becoming a part of the permanent
wealth ot man. That gives these stories
their inimitable charm. There is none ot
the striving of the funny man ia what
belongs to that first period, no setting of
traps for our admiration. This is the
same as saying thnt there is none ot that
instinct of egotism which prompts a man
to*inngh nt his fellow, to show how much
wiser and cleverer he himself is. It is
all free, generous and bountiful as the
sunshine of the land where it was conceived, full of the spontaneous life of nature herself.
A Sarcastic Professor.
A good story is going the rounds at Columbia regarding one of the sarcastic professors, who was recently conducting an
jrnl examination ia a very scientific study.
There was one student—handsome, easy
and self possessed—who appeared to be
utterly ignorant of the simplest phases of
the subject. Professor W. put question
after question to him without receiving
oue Intelligent reply.
Finally tbe student snld naively, with
Just a touch of reproach: "I'm very unfortunate, professor You never ask me
anything I know."
The professor snld nothing, but gravely tore off a tiny piece of paper from a
convenient pad. "Hete, Mr. B.." he snid,
bnndiug It to the student, "write all you
know; tako plenty of timet there's no hurry."
Made It Crown Points.
Lord Beaconslield Is snid to hnve been
the only mnn who ever succeeded in getting Fdwnrd VII when he wns Prince
ot Wales to play for small stakes.
The prince wns on a visit to Hughcn-
deti, and after dinner the usual gnme was
suggested. When the slnkes were announced. "Dlwy" turned pnle. He was n
comparatively poor man and feared to
risk so much money. A bright idea occurred to him. It wus just sfter the queen
hnd been crowned empress of Iudin, nnd
"Dizzy" suggested, "Wouldn't It he suitable to make It crown points?" The

A MESSAGE OP HOPE TO THE
WEAK AND DEPRESSED.
A   Grateful   Woman   Tells   of   Her   Keltaae
From tha Agonies That Afflict Her Sex
After Three Doctors Had Pallet to Help
Her.
Tho amount of suffering borne by
women throughout the country can
never be estimated. Silently, almost
hopelessly, they endure from day to
day afflictions that can only fall to
tlie lot of women. Tho following
story of tho suffering and release of
Mrs. Charles Hoeg, of Southampton,
N.S., ought to bring hope and health
and happiness to other sufferers. Mrs.
Hoeg says : "For nine out of the
thirty-two years of my life I havo
suffered as no woman, unless sho has
been similarly afflicted, can imagine I
could suffer and yet have lived. Three
weeks out of four I would be unable
to move about and, indeed, at no
time was really fit to attend to my
household duties. 1 consulted physicians— Three of the most skilful
doctors in tho county of Cumberland
at different times had charge of my
vuse. Theso all agreed in their diagnosis, but thu treatment varied; and
while at times I would experience
some relief, at no time was there any
hope given me of a permanent cure.
Many a night when I went to bed I
would have been glad if death had
come before morning. I never had
much faith in proprietary medicines,
but at one time I took a half dozen
bottles of a blood-smoking compound
that was highly recommended. This,
like everything else, failed to help me.
There seemed to be not a particle of
blood in my body. My face was absolutely colorless, and my appet it.e
almost entirely deserted me. I often
saw in tho newspapers letters testifying to tho merits of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, but nine years of suffering
and discouragement had made me
too sceptical to see any hope of relief when doctors had failed to effect a cure. But at last • I came
across the atory of a cure near home
—that of Mr. Moses Boss, of Sod-
ney. I knew that at one time he
had been regarded as a hopeless consumptive, and his cure through Dr.
Williams' Fink Pills determined me
to try them. I had not taken two
boxes before I began to feel better,
and grew confident of a cure. I kept
on taking thc pills, all the time feeling new blood in my veins, activity
returning to my limbs, and the feeling of depression gradually wearing
away. To many -women it may seem
incredible that tbo mere making of
new blood in my veins could restore
to a healthy condition misplaced internal organs, but this has beeu my
happy experience. My pains have all
left me, und I am now as healthy a
woman as there Is ia this place.
This health I owe to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, which have rescued me
from a life of suffering, if not from
the grave."
Dr. Williams. Pink Pills are especially valuable to women. They build
up the blood, restore the nerves, and
eradicate those troubles which make
the Uvea of so many women, old and
young, a burden. Palpitation of tho
heart, nervous headache, and nervous
prostration speedily yield to this
wonderful medicine. These pills are
sold only in boxes, the trade mark
and wrapper printed in red ink, at
50 rents a box or six boxes for
82.50. and may be had of druggists,
or direct by mail from Dr. Williams'
Medicine company, Brockvillo, Ont.

There is no doubting R. F. Green's
position on the question of Asiatic im-
•inigration. Our member recently
appeared before the royal commission
,and testified strongly against the

well-being of the province, and he
""favored the total exclusion of all such
immigrants. Mr. Green's opinions
i are supported in toto by his constituents.
There will be no strike at Rossland,
at least, not for the present.   Muckers have been getting only $2.50 per
.day and they ssought to get the wage
.raised to $3.   Other grievances from
.the miners were coupled to this and a
mass meeting called on Monday last.
A ballot taken on the question of de-
, daring a strike showed 12 votes less
than the necessary three-quarters required tp put the action into effect.
It was a narrow shave, but it is hoped
all difficulties in the way ofa peaceable settlement will be removed.
The Industrial World, in a strong
, article, refutes the insinuations made
•in  the statement  of  the Rosdand
.mine-owners. By letters from Messrs.
sSmith and Clute, who acted as arbitrators in the troubles of a vear ago,
it  proves that the mineowners are
those at fault and not the Miners'
.Union, in that they have failed to
live up to their agreement.   Blame
.for the non payment of dividends is
/laid to the heavy expenditures for
.machinery and equipment  for the
mines, and to the small quantity of
ore shipped.   The Rossland miners
are not looking for  trouble, for they
area peace-loving lot of men.   In
. conclusion the World says: The publication of thc mineowners' announce-
.ment is not only untruthful but it is
unfair, to the business people as well
as the laboring element.    The latter
,did not invite,neitherdoes it deserve,
such action, and it is not to be won-
, dered at if they resent it.
What the town and camp would be
without the operation of the Arlington
and Speculator mines ia a subject one
•little likes to speculate upon, yet the
full bearing of the working of these i
properties on the destinies of the burg
has not been as clearly recognized as
.it deserves to be. The two properties
. constitute the principal portion ofthe
payroll of the camp, and their ramifications arc the main factor in demonstrating the character an.1 richness
ofthe mineral resources of the division.   Their combined payrolls are
in the neighborhood of 130 men, while
indirectly many others derive a living from the mines.   Business men,
.freighters, and, in fact, all classes of
the community, feel the beneficent influence of the thousands of dollars
.expended each month by the Arlington and Speculator.   It is a great
thing to have the powerful combination of capital represented in these
two properties operating in the dis
strict, and their business-like manner
in -conducting    affairs    is   tending
mightily   towards  attracting other
nionied interests to become identified
here.   The coming summer will wit
ness a lavish expenditure of monies
,on the Arlington and Speculator in
general improvements, as the opera
tors realize the sterling worth of their
possessions.   They recognize also the
virtue of spending money to make
•money.   They deserve success.
