Frank Griffith canio down from Ten
Mile on Friday to i*ecord two years'
work on seven claims.biing an earnest
of the heavy labor ha puts, in on that
oreek. Incidentally he stated he would
make a thr<*e-ton shipment of oro in a
dny or two from his Wostmont group.
The ore was already Kicked on the
dump, bein*}* mrted out from the mineral taken from his new drift. The
latter is in 100 feet and is carrying
four inches of pay oi*e in the breast.
The vein faulted a little ubout half
way in, but the drift was swung to the
west and the paystreak agaiu picked
up. The ore carries much grey copper and some native silver and will
srive high values. Frank is particularly taken with a garden he has
planted away up on tho mountain side,
having a healthy display of green
stuff, iiotatoes and strawberries, lie
is combining fanning with mining and
both are money makers for him.
To Work tli a Hoedsao.
J. M. M. Benedum, who has lieeu
spending the winter in Caraerou.West
Virginia, arrived in on Monday, accompanied by his brother. M.L.Bone-
dum. They have arrived here for the
express purpose of operating the Hoodoo, Howard Fraction and adjoining
claims on Gold Hill, and they mean
business. Asssx-iated with theni are
men of strong financial standing and
ample funds are available to carry out
their programme. On Wednesday
men were sent up to tho properties to
open the drifts and secure a ton sample of or<* for testing, so as to decide
the milling process required, as it is
tho intention to establibh reduction
works, if necessary, on the ground. J.
M- has worked trie projierties before
and knows their capabilities and he is
confident of success. He promises to
employ a largs* force of men during
the season.

The high winds of Sunday aud
Monday playid havoc with the Ixxim
at the mouth of Wilson creek, owned
bv the Ontario-Slocan Lumber Co.
L'pwanls of 1,«X),000 feet of timber
came down the creek with a rush on
Sunday, taxing the capacity of the
boom to tho utmost, and then the
wind got in its work, causing about
600 logs to break away and escape
into the lake. The company will make
uo effort at present to pick them up,
as thoy will not go far. On Tuesday
tho tug Sandon went up to Ro-ebery
and brought down a lioora of l,000,0tW
feet, which fills tho vacancy in the
bay. The company's own tug is too
light for towing and they will have to
build a new one for the work.
grade all the way over. It will lie of
immense benefit to a largo number of
claims and will enable supplies to be
taken out direct from here. The new
trail will be four miles long, making
it six miles in all from town.   With
this connection made one may take a
lorse then to any town in the upper
camp or to any of the creeks. All the
work is being doue without government assistance.

The London & B. C. QoldfieldB,
which is interested in the Enterprise
mine on Ten Mile, the Ruth, Whitewater, Ymir and other properties, is to
be re-organized on the assessable basis, things not having gone well with
the organization lately. Under the
management of the late J. Roderiok
Robertson, the affairs of the company
were most prosperous and handsome
dividends were paid.
The annual report of the company
to December 31 last, states that the
vei-v serious fall in the prices of lead
ana silver has had a disastrous effect
on the company's large holdings in
the Whitewater, Ruth and Enterprise
mines, and the assessment on the
shares of the Ymir, through its reconstruction, involved a heavy liability to
preserve this interest.
The British Columbia Review says
of the scheme:
"The effect of this and the delay in
the completing of the Kettle River
Power .Co.'s works, makes it now necessary to provide additional capital
to satisfy immediate liabilities aud to
enable tne directors to preserve the
company's valuable assets. The Ymir
shares and thc Kettle River debenture
stock and shares have great prospective value, and the preservation of the--e
assets alone would make it particularly desirable that some financial arrangement for this purpose should
immediately be carried out. In addition to these assets, however, the company's interests in the silver lead properties belonging to the Whitewater,
Ruth, aud Enterprise companies
should be favorably affected by the
recent and rapid appreciation in the
price of silver, and also by tho now
legislation which it is hoped will be
enacted by the British .Columbia gov-
erumont for an improvement in the
conditions afflicting the markets for
the sale of lead.
"Jn order to facilitate the dealing
with the company's liabilities, tho
chairman, who was in New York the
latter end of the year on personal
business, visited Montreal and spent
several days in conference with Mr.
Fowler, with a view, amongst other
things, of disposing of -some of the
Kettle River debeutures, but, owing to
tho condition of markets in Canada
aud to the Crow's Nest coal strike and
other causes, there has been no opportunity up to the present of doing this
without undue sacrifice, but now thnt
the Kettle River company is actually
supplying power to the towns, mines
and smelters in thc district, and is
earning a revenue, the value of its de-
bi'uturi's nnd shares is beiug rapidly
"It is necessary, however, to at once
provide funds for satisfying the company's immediate liabilities, to euable
the directors to preserve the large
number of shares which represent its
principal assets, and after most careful consideration it has been decided
to recommend that the company be
reconstructed with a liability of 4s a
share, tho payment of which will be
spread over as loug a period as possible. The directors, having subscribed
largely to the last issue of shares, are
themselves very large shareholders,
and as such regret the neic*e88ity for
the scheme now proposed, but they
are preparing to provide their share
of the assessment. Resolutions for
giving effect to this proposal will be
submitted at an extraordinary general

Driving Logs ror mui.
The driving of logs down Bonanza
oreek, at tbe head of the lake, for the
focal mill, haa not lieen altogether a
sueeess, tu  the   strong   currunt   ha.**
eaten away tho banks of the stream
and lessened tho Uow in mid channel.
As a result part of the drive will be
hold up till next season. Tho company will construct several more check
dams and so control the water. They
estimate they have over 30,000,000 foet
of timber to come down the creek, and
to get it thev can get six feet depth of
extra water from Summit lake, which
is ample for al" purposes. Driving on
Wilson creek commenced this week
and met with succoss.
Causing Havee en All the Creeks ta the
All predictions of high water this
year are being rapidly verified and it
looks as if there would be very serious
floods from the lakes and rivers. As
it is there have been most anxious
times this week on all the creeks along
Slocan lake and mora or less damage
has been done. The troublo started
with the hot weather on Saturday,
which has continued with a warm
wind and raia during the week, causing the snow on the hills to go off in
a rush, and turning all the creeks into
raging torrents.
Sunday and Monday were exciting
days here, aa Springer creek got on
the rampage and would not stay in its
proper channel. Every man ana horse
in town was pressed into service to
protect the mill property, which was
chiefly threatened. A forest of trees
was cut and hauled into the creek to
protect the banks, and wing dams
constructed at the principal points to
control the water. Despite everything
large sections of the bank on either
side of the stream was washed away,
together with a couple of shacks. The
Fletcher avenue bridge was threatened, but protected in time. The centre
of tho Delaney avenue bridge caught
the full force of the water and is badly
wrecked. Men have been workiug
night and day during tho week and
they have got things into shape.
The people of New Denver and Silverton have had a hard time of it also,
as Carpenter and Four Mile creeks
have damaged the bridges badly, cut
out the roads and forced new channels
through to the lake. On Ten Mile
great difficulty* was experienced in
snving the bridge at Aylwfh"t*., aa well
os the Entorprise'dam. On Lemon
thc bridges are out and the trail destroyed. At the mouth of the creek
the north approach to the big railway
bridge was damaged on Tuesday, delaying the train several hours, while
on Wednesday about 100 feet of the
track was taken out. The railway
bridge at Slocan Junction was put out
of business and passengers and mail
on the Robson road had to be transferred.
The lake is coming up hand over
fist and already has passed last year's
record. It is expected to go much

The Winnipeg Industrial Expedition, which will be held on July 20-25

Rich Oeld Ure.
A pocket of exceptionally rich gold
ore has been opened up on the Goldfinch property,in the Camborne camp.
It was encountered in the main drift
on the vein and created quite a sensation. One specimen of fivo pounds
was almost solid gold. Another piece
of 150 pounds weight was estimated
to be worth $7000. Tho latter piece
was sent to Hancock, Mich., the headquarters of the Calumet & British
Columbia Co. owning the property.
The usual run of the vein is $20 per

"Why, neltber doea anybody else In

Miss Mai-laii" Is thc only woman of
thnt kind, bo far ns we know, who could
have any motive for going there. And
somebody went."
IClisle wns he ginning to be exelte-d to
the danger point, and Kendnll cut off
tin. Interview, Noole yielding without a
word of protest,
"Don't you worry; not a bit," said he
to I*lsle. "There nln't going to be no
(rouble for anybody, except the guilty
piirty." -
When the captain had gone, Elsie
pli'iiilcd with Kendull to let her seo Dr.
"All these stories about Uremia must
rest upon what he says." she Insisted,
"nnd If I tell hlm positively, face to
face, that It wiss uot Brenda he will
in uke n statement thnt will put nn end
lo nil the trouble. And It Is worrying
(trends*. I'm sure of It. She tries to
hide It from me, but Ihere Is something
pi-eylng on her mind. Of course I have
not understood what It was, but now 1
can see. We must remember how hard
It Is for a girl brought up as she has
been, nil surrounded by dignity and refinement, to have her name In everybody's mouth In connection with such
en affair ns this."
Kendall was Inclined to tako a favorable view of this suggestion. Ills own
opinion, formed from tho newspaper
reports, wns that Dr. Blair was a conscientious mun who wns trying to tell
the exact trutb In a very serious matter; that be believed It was Miss Mac-
lime whom he had seen, but was wise
aud Just enough not. to say so upon nny
other ground than positive certainty.
Upon the other hand, he would not ds>
clare openly 'hat the woman was not
Brenda until bis mind was clear of
doubt It might easily hnppen that a
tnlk with Elsie would result ln thoroughly convincing him, nnd for Elsie
there was nothing to be feared, since
Blair as a physician would know bow
to avoid exciting her.
Accordingly Kendall snld thnt he
would send word to BJnlr during the
nfternoon. As It hnppehed, he had
leisure to go himself upon this errand,
Elsts looked nt it, fascinated.
and aa outdoor air would have tbe
charm of novelty for hiin he took advantage of the opportunity.
He was surprised at tbe meager
furnishing of his professional brother's
small and dark waiting room. It was
neat and not altogether destitute of
comfort, but It was destitute of patients and bad not tbe look of a place
that bad ever been overrun with
them. A servant's rap upon the door
communicating with the ollice brought
forth Blair, to whom Kendall made
himself known.
The office wos a large and dreary
room, with a view of back yards.
Tbere waa a broad couch lu u corner
with a pile of chenp aofa pillows,
against which the doctor had probably
been reclining. At the foot of the
couch and oddly propped against tbo
back of a cbalr was a single silken
pillow beautifully embroidered From
a professional standpoint the room
lucked many things that money can
buy, and to Kendall, who was so far
removed from the need of fees that he
bad almost forgotten tho possibility of
any doctor having to subsist upon
them, tbe place spoke loudly of poverty. As for Blnlr himself, he matched his surroundings, for bis mood was
far from cheerful.
"What can I do for you, doctor?" he
asked ln tbe tone of oue who has
ceased to expect good from any Interview.
"Miss Miller, who la my patient at
the hospital, wishes to see you," said
Kendall, "and I called to aak you to
eome over."
"I hope a consultation Isn't neccs-
sary," said Blair, with a faint smile.
"I understood that her recovery was
"It la In regard to Miss Maclane,"
responded Kendnll, with considerable
Blnlr faintly groaned.
"I wish I hnd kept my mouth shut,"
he snld. "Of course If I can do anything fo ptease Miss MUler." he added
hastily, "I shall be delighted. I know
her slightly, and she Is a very charming girl. But really this matter of
Miss Muclaue Is wearing my life out.
Policemen, reporters, unidentified
"And, laat of all, a doctor," added
—"bave worried the flesh off my
bones,"  continued   Blair  without  no
ticing  the Interruption.   "Tbey  Insist |
tlmt 1 sball identity Miss Maclane ns
the    woman    I    saw.   They    probeut
threats   and   bribes.   Tbey   offer   all
sorts of ridiculous plans for bringing
Miss Maclane and me together so that
I may be sure of her.   But 1 have seen j
Miss Maclane already, and I have said j
all that I have to say upou the sub- I
,1ect." \
"You have not snld that she waa not ,
the woman," sugg.isted Kendall.
"No, and I won't," respouded Blair
promptly,   "Why should I?"
"Unless you are sure," snld Kendnll,
"you may feel like delaying a Ilnnl
statement, but I cnu't help thinking
that j ir course takes little account of
Miss '.Machine's welfare; I might almost say of her rights. However, I
must not get excited about It."
"You seem to tnke a considerable Interest," snld Blfilr. "You have known
Miss Maclane for some years, I nm
told. But that Is none of my business.
What does Miss Miller wish me to do?"
"She believes that she can convince
you thnt Miss Maclane Is not the woman you saw," replied Kendnll.
Blnlr wns silent for some moments.
"I don't see how that Is possible," he
said at last, "but I would be very glnd
to oblige ber, or you, If 1 could. There
Is, however, such a thing as the truth,
you know."
Kendall was beginning to feci painfully anxious. Tlierc seemed to be a
strsing probability that Blair was perfectly convinced In regard to this matter of identity and that be was reserving bis statement until tho nature of
the case should disclose Itself. If Elsie
shoulil die, there was little chance that
n man of Blair's type would withhold
his evidence, for In thnt event somebody would be directly accused, nnd a
just person would feel that all the evidence should be brought forward.
Blair's present position was such that
Kendnll did not know how to attack It,
aud so he fell back upon the matter of
his real errand. As to that there was
no difficulty. Blair promised to call at
thc hospital within an hour.
Having received this promise, Kendnll returned at once nnd notified Elslo
of the approaching visit. Her manner
was very slgnlllcant. She was evidently brnclug herself for n considerable ordeal. There could be no doubt
that she had determined to snve Brenda from the annoyance to which sho
was being subjected and from thc
much more serious trouble that might
follow. As she had expressed a wish
to speak with Dr. Blair a few minutes
alone there could be but one Inference-
she Intended to tell him something
which she had withheld up to that
time. As Blnlr v.ns thc first physician
who bad been called to attend her she
could clnlm the right of a patient aud
put him upon his professional honor
uot to disclose what she might say.
Indeed, certain questions which she
asked made Kendall sure that she had
sainslsli'i'oiL this phase of the situation.
It was possible that she might Intend
io go to thu length of confiding to Blnlr
the actual facts of the case, for by
uanilug the author of the crime she
could most surely relieve Brenda from
any further suspicion. Even upon thu
supposition thnt Brenda bad really
gone; to that house nnd hnd been seen
by Blair he would probably consent to
shield her from offensive publicity If
he knew her to be entirely Innocent.
Kendall was conscious of a strange,
boyish feeling of discontent thnt Elsie
should not hnve chosen him ns the recipient of this confidence. He could
understand that there might bo ren
sons why she should tell Brenda everything, and, ns to that, Indeed, he
had no positive knowledge that she hnd
not already done so. Moreover, to have
told him would have been merely to let
another person Into the secret, whatever it might be, since It was not he,
but Blair, who had the power to cheek
the attacks upon Brenda. Still, he
could not help feeling Isolated,the more
because of his reflection that Brenda
might already know all.
From this youthful frame of mind he
passed to one more mature and practical. It might In; that Blair was not
worthy of this conlldeuce. Without
pretending to know wbnt Elsie's secret
might be, Kendall surely did not wish
It to lie betrayed. All consideration of
abstract juitl.ee. bad vanished ln personal Interest. ITe wns for Elsie with
a genuine loyalty, and Blair had not
Impressed him favorably. He teemed
a morose and discontented man, with
an unsatisfied s-ravlng for something,
probably money, nnd he had not a perfectly honest eye. Supposing that Elsie's secret Involved Allien nnd that Alden hml really become rich In n wny Invisible to his closest friends— well. In
thnt case It might be that Dr. Blair
would be ablo to afford a better ofliee.
With these thoughts In mind Kendall
ventured to caution Elsie against the
evils Incident to an unwise trust In the
discretion and the promises of one's
fellow crentures, but Elsie teemed to
have an excellent opinion of her own
good judgment, as often happens witb
tbe young.
When Blair appeared, Kendall mentioned to him that Elsie desired to see
him alone for a few minutes, adding,
"She seems to have some communication which ls In the highest degree confidential."-
"I shall treat whatever she says as a
matter between doctor nnd patient,"
replied Blair, somewhat too promptly,
aa Kendall thought.
Nothing of importance occurred during the timo wben Brenda and Kendall
were present with Blair ln El6le's room.
It might have been one of the doctor's
regular professional calls.
The private conference Insted not
more than five minutes, and It produced no very notable effect upon Elsie, but Dr. Blair seemed to have received a considerable surprise. Kendall was far from satisfied with the
man's looks. He was not only agitated, but he bad the air of one who Is
both scared and pleasesl, like u mnn
wbo seea an opportunity tho nature of
wblcb both attracts and frightens him.
"I was not oworc you made it a matter
of conscience."
And the thought came to Kendnll that
tbls secret might affect Brenda, whose
father was very weak ln thc nerves
and very strong In tho pocket.
On the face of the matter, however,
It appeared that Elsie had achieved a
notable success, for Blair said to Brenda:
"Miss Miller tells me that you nre
much disturbed by thc absurd attempts
to Identify you with the so called 'mysterious woman' ln this unfortunate irf-
falr. I think I can put a stop to these
"Was It for that tbat she asked you
to come here?" demanded Brenda, who,
by Elsie's request, had not been Informed ln advance of this attempt.
"Oh, no; It was merely Incidental,"
replied Blair, "and my conclusion depends partly upon my having seen you
again. Your word should, of course,
have been enough for mc, but I have
not taken a proper view of the seriousness of tbe matter. I shall now state
positively that you are not the lady I
aaw." i
"I would prefer that you say nothing
at all," said Brenda after a brief interval of reflection. \
Blair showed bis surprise.
"I do not understand," he said.
"Surely you wish me to speak the
truth r |
"I was not aware that you made It
a matter of conscience," replied Brett* |
da, slightly Inclining her hend by way ,
of dismissal to Blair, wbo was upou .
the point of leaving the room.
Ihe next morning's pn-
pera contained Interviews wltb Dr. Blair
ln which he stated In
the most positive manner that the mysterious .woman was not
Miss Maclane. Tbis
did not have the.effect of taking Brenda entirely out of print, but it Inspired
all tbe newspaper writers with caution, for, though some of them were
not able to believe tbat Blair was telling the truth, it was Impossible to overlook the fact that be was the only witness.
Tbe most serious of tbe Immediate
results of tbis publication was experienced by Dr. Blair himself about 10
o'clock ln tbe forenoon, when he received a call from Captain Neale. The captain seemed not to be representing the
department upon this occasion, for he
was ln tbq dress of a private citizen.
Even his shoes were different from a
policeman's characteristic footwear.
As the apparel evidently was' not worn
for purposes of disguise, It might be
assumed that Mr. Neale had come upon
a personal errand.
When admitted to Dr. Blair's office,
he first showed Interest ln all the doors
opening from the room;, then lie be*
stoweda moment's attention upon some
of the doctor's effects which bad been
collected as If to be packed In a large
"Going nway?" Inquired Neale.
"Move," responded Blair. ".,
"What for?"
"Xou've aucceeded ln spoiling mj
practice around here," was the reply;
"I am no* more modest than othi r doctors, but ilie kind of oonsplcuonsnnsi
which comes from having a uniformed
policeman s-all at the house every ien
minutes is not a good advertisement
So I have eagaged other quarters.1,
"I wiiiibl llks- lo tell you Hint It's none
of your business,'' saiil Blnlr, "but thut
Wouldn't prevent ynu frnm finding out.
I'm going up tnwn."
And be gave the address, which the
captain ostentatiously uoted down:
Having done this, he looked Blair in
the eye ami said:
"I don't know whether you're going
or not."
"Mnke yonr mind ensy," repli,'d the
doctor.   "I am."
"You're an important witness in this
case," said the captain, "and I want
you where I cun get my hands on yon."
"Well, I'm not going far."
The captain screwed up his queer
eyebrows ln his own peculiar fashion.
"It's my opinion," snld be, "that
you're going to the bouse of detention."
Blair looked uneasy, but he mustered
a smile.
"The house of detention Is for the
poor," he said. "It Is for people who
Will stand being Imprisoned six i.untlis
or a year for nothing without ma king
nny fuss about It."
"You're poor enough, my friend," replied tbe captain, "and I'll see tbnt you
don't make any fuss. I've got a story
all flxs'd up that Will keep you quiet."
Blair let tho lid of the trunk fall
honvlly and then snt down on top of It.
"Well, you neesln't tell me wbnt It Is,"
he said. "I'll take your word for It
that It's a good one. In short, you Intend to ruin mo In this town."
The captain put his baud Into his
pocket In a way that nade Blair nerv
ous, but It wns nothing more formidable thnn a piece 6f chewing tobacco
that appeared. Neale nodded slowly
as he bit off a **-lece.
"From the beginning of this case,"
said tbe doctor, "I have been totally
unable to understand your game. What
la It?"
"My game," replied the cnptnln, "Is
to take good care of Joseph Neale."
"Well," said Blnlr, "what havo 1
done to prevent lt?"
"Ever hear the story of the beggar
who asked the professional charily
man for n dime?"
"I don't remember it," said the doctor.
"The charity man said: 'Co over on
the other side of tho street I'm working this side.'"
Blair appeared to ponder deeply upon
the significance of this ancient tale in
the present situation.
"Look here," said the captain suddenly. "You saw Brenda Maclane coming out of that house, and you had
sense enough to keep still until you
found out where you stood. That was
all right. You fouud out, right nway,
what kind of n father she had, and you
knew thnt your Information was worth
money. Now, don't Jump. I've looked
you up, and I've fouud out Unit you're
not above tbat sort of thing. Very
well; few of us nre, but when yon
found out thnt I was 'on' you ought to
have done oue of two things—quit or
let me in."
Blnlr drummed on the trunk with
bis fingers.
"I thought you were after Alden," he
"I'm after 'em both."
"Do you still believe there's nnythlng
In Alden's story of money?" queried
Blair, eying the other shrewdly.
Neale nodded emphatically.
"But we'll leave that for a minute,"
be said. "In the matter of Mnclnne I
1st you go ou, merely showing you that
I wns keeping close track. I didu't
suppose you'd .Jump so quick."
"What do you mean?"
The captain shook a big forefinger ln
Blair's faco.
"You went to Maclane'a house last
evening," he said. "Then you gave out
tbat Interview," And tbe big forefinger
came very close to Blair's nose as the
captain added, "How mucii did you
Blair's lean and deeply lined face
was suddenly moistened with perspiration. Ho sprang up sldewlse from the
trunk and walked around tbe far end
of the table.
'"Ibis Is getting personal," he snld nt
last, with a nervous laugh thnt scarcely passed beyond a contortion of tlie
"I'll mnke It personal for you. my
friend," ho said. "In fact, I'll land
you beblud the bars before I'm done
with you.   This ls blackmail."
Blair laughed aloud.
"Blackmail Is a dreadful sin," be
■aid, "and nobody knows It better than
you do."
Neale did not see fit to reply. He
watched Blair carefully as the latter
paced up and down gnawing his lips.
"Captain," said the doctor, pausing
suddenly and facing about, "how much
money can you raise?"
Neale's eyebrows took the shape of
Inverted Vs, and beneath them his
eyes looked like dots becnuse of tbe
contraction ln the corners.
"Wbat are you trying to get at?" he
demanded. "You . mean something.
What is it?"
A sudden shivering selzesl Blair, so
that his Jaws could be seen to shake.
Indeed they could be heard. He croSaV,
ed to a locker on the wall, frnm which
he took a small bottle containing a
thick nnd dork fluid. This be raised
to his lips, shuddiTlng at the taste of

tbe mntter of self command.
"Nerve medicine?" said Neale. "1
don't think you need It."
"Ypu told me," replied Blalr slowly,
"that I ought to quit or let you In. I've
decided to do the latter."
"Bight!" said tbe captain, with emphasis.   "How much did you got?"
"Tbe little money that I got Trom
Maclane doesn't amount to anything,"
responded Blalr. "1 got something

A group of women were talking about
the stupidity of men at all limes and
their enormous denseni'ss when their

"You know one duy we liml company

That Dodd's Kidney Pills are one ol
the greatest boons over conferred on
suffering womankind Is the experience
of Mrs. John C. Huffman, of tWa
placo. For the benefit of her Blaster
women sho has given the following
statement for publication :
"1 had been troubled for about six
years with Kidney Disease and tbe
pain was so great, I could not stajed
it. I could not entertain any cem-
"Ono night when I .was feeling mls-
irnble, I read some wonderful eufes
hy Dodd's Kidney Pills and I dectaled
to try thorn. The first box bresig%t
an improvement and by the time I
had taken six boxes I was completely cured.
"I can recommend Dodd's Kidney
Pills to any person suffering from
Kidney Dlsoase and I make this statement hoping it will help other young
ladles or married women."
Mrs. Huffman is only one of ninny
women who have proved Ihel many
female complaints are the'icsu'l o'
disordered Kidneys and a••• -:' s'isH
easily curable by usliuf I ntV a I- i '
ney Pills.

Ainei-iciiii visitors in Paris, ileilin m-
Vienna often wonder how and where :
correspondents do their work. The
truth Is a lart*e part of their work Is j
done at these very social gatherings
where you have met them, Important
news la usually there obtainable only.
Statesmen and diplomats, geberal*) and
admiralH, leaders of thought aud action,
the foremost men of business and the
Indefatigable promoters of great new
ventures—all the men and women, In
fact, who make the news and who are
the fountain bead of it—the correspondent will meet there. II depends on his
individual exertions und on his tact
and gift of persuasion what use be
makes of bis opportunities. Being
treated as a social equal, it devolves of
course on tbe correspondent to reciprocate favors shown, not in nun'itUy perhaps, but at least in quality, The leading correspondents must have homes of
comfort and must throw them open to
(be official and iinollieial world at stated Intervals, say three or four times
per season. Their private fortunes or
their incomes must be large enough to
admit thnt. Their annual expenditures
cannot be less than $."1.0(10 and may exceed $15,000. The London Times, for
Instance, pays Its correspondents on a
liberal scale, salaries oi' $."i,0(J0 to $10,-
000 being the rub*. Yet the majority
of tbem find lt necessary to make up
regular deficiencies In tbelr exchequer
out of their own private funds.
The life of the American correspondent en the continent of Europe is a life
Interesting and fascinating enough in
its way, and It broadens the mental
horizon as perhaps no other occupation does. But it Is a nerve destroying
life, a life ln which there ls scarcely a
minute he can call bis very own. Every day ln the year it spurs Its slave on
to utmost exertion. It barely pays expenses, and It necessitates constant
outlays In time nnd money which can-
noj bo put down ln tlie expense ni'-
cotint and which are a drain on health
and purse alike. Even under the most
favorable circumstances the game ls
hardly worth the candle. To go to bed
at 2 or 3, fagged out with never ending excitement and toil; to be waked
out of a sound sleep an hour later by
a ring at tbe telephone or by inopportune cable inquiries from the homo office; to dress hurriedly, take a cab to
the nearest telegraph ofliee and there
wire a hasty reply; then to return and
seek a few hours of titfill sleep and to
ri?e morning after morning uure-
fresbed, witli never repose for body
and soul-all this is neither condusive
to longevity nor to a quiet and contented mind.

•""Then I watch a new building going
up day by day from foundation to
flagstaff," saisl the city Balesman, "l
get so muddled by the time it is eotu-
pleted that I cannot tell for the life of
me whether lt Is lil'ly feet wide or GOO
feet. So far as mere visual ms'iisure-
ment** go, the size varies so much in
the course of construction that confusion ls unavoidable. When tlie excavation for the foundation Is in order,
the hole In tbe ground seems so enormous tbat I could take oath It covers a
ten acre lot. Afts>r tbe steel framework goes up the building shrinks
amazingly, and I say to myself: 'Well,
that Isn't going to lie such a big affair
after all. How could my eyes have deceived me so when looking at tbe excavation?' But when the walls nre
finished nnd the windows In aud tbe
di-eorntions all stus-k in place tbe whole
building swells out again prodigiously."

They had a good mau iu charge of the
mine once, but they let him go just at
the point where ho had brought the
property within sight of permanont
success. Note the contrast: the mine,
under company control, a distinct
failure; under the present management of lessees, a pronounced success.
Why? Because the lessees have no
big salaried supes and directors and
costly office maintenance, and because
they are using good practical common
sense in mining.   Twaa ever thus.
FRIDAY, JUNK 5th,1903.
Congratulations to Hon.R.F. Green,
member for the Slocan riding, the new
minister of mines in the first Tory
government in British Columbia.
Oh, the irony ot it all. Attornoy

The government were forced to acknowledge the corn, regarding the

cancelled the whole business—ouly to
authorize another reserve on a smaller

The Slocan City mining division has
had a rough deal. Last year no government money was spent on new
roads or trails and practically none on
repairs, owing to Premier Prior having
his knife into Bob Green, the sitting
member. Now this season, when liberal grants for improvements and re*
pairs have become a question of the
-utmost necessity, the estimates have
not yet beea granted by the legislature.
Hard luck.

Smith Curtis fired a bombshell last
week that proved the death blow to
the Prior government.   He found that
' Col. Prior's firm had participated in a
government contract for the building
of a bridge and asked for a committee
of inquiry. It was granted and the
result was that Lieut.-Gov. Joly dismissed Prior from office. Dick McBride, leader of the opposition, was
•called in Monday to form a cabinet,
and undertook to perpetuate the coalition farce. The Conservative members of the house held a caucus and
objected, finally forcing McBride into
' straight party lines, he having the
support of 22 votes, the remaining
members forming the Liberal opposition. The cabinet now stands: R.Mc-
Bride, premier and commissioner of
lands and works; R. F. Green, minister of mines; R.G. Tatlow, minister of
finance; F. J. Fulton, provincial at-ere-
tary; Chaa. Wilson, attorney general;
A. E. McPhillips, president of the
■council. The new government will
revise and pass th* estimates and some
nou-contentious legislation, and then
appeal to tha country. Tho Grits
don't like the turu and strongly de-
' nouuee it, ns they fully expected to
get a chance to forma cabinet of their
ain ilk. It would have lieen different

It is with regret that people in this

that company was looked upon as the

in the province, and its advent here
waa heartily welcomed.   For tho past
two years, however, any casual observer could see that things were not going right, and the new scheme to reorganize tho company has been anticipated. Erecting expensive reduction

Slater Shoe Ad-vcr.:-:!n":.
Shoe Cost
Short tatys by the Slater Shoe ad man, No. 1.
It costs less to advertise and sell the "Slater Shoe" than
it costs to sell ordinary shoes without advertising.
If a thousand people know a shoe is good more people will
want that shoe than if only ten people know it.
If the "whole city" knows it more people will want it than
if only the people passing the store where it is sold, know it
merely by hearsay.
The "Slater Shoe" makers, knowing thc "Slater Shoe"
will back up the expense cf advertising it, givi it wide publicity
•—they tell the "whole city" about it.
It follows then as the "Stater Shoe" is better known
through advertising than unadvertised shoes, that more "Slater
Shoes" of equal grades are sold, which is a fact.
So the fixed charges of manufacturing, wholesaling and
retailing are -divided among a greater number of pairs of shoes
than is the case in unknown shoes of smaller sales.
For instance:—Take a salesman's salary at $2.00 per day :—
if his sales are only ten pairs per day the cost of retailing alone
is 20 cents per pair.
But if advertising will enable him to sell fifty pairs per day
the cost is only four cents per pair and thus such fixed expenses
as rent, light, taxes, salaries, interest, etc., are reduced and
.So the wearer as well as the maker is benefited by the
liberal and judicious advertising of a good article like the "Slater
Shoe"— -and it would be rank folly to risk a large amount of
money to advertise a shoe which the wearers would not buy
a set-ond times
