instructions for the board of works in
repairing the bridge.
Aid. McCallum said the council
had decided to repair the Delaney
ave bridge, but' to leave the up]
bridge until after high water,
they could take that matter ap. The
repairs to the Delaney ave bridge
would be temporary, enabling teams
to cross over.
The council agreed that the bridge
should bu repaired by tlie board of
works as good as the funds available
would permit,

Letters have been received during

travelled about 15 miles, when our
advance guards got sight of tbe Beer

away. Then we started to camp
right there, thinking that they had
gone. We had just got our saddles
off and the horses watered and the
lines down when, to our surprise, tbe
Boers started to surround ns, and
threw some shells into our camp. Wn

not without heavy loss on their side,
as one ofthe Boer doctors camo into

they had lost more men in that battle

Big Lumber Syndicate.
Among the visitors in the city on
Wednesday was W. B. Strathearn,
manager for the syndicate which
has recently acquired Hill Bros',
sawmill at the head ef the lake. The
syndicate is composed mainly of
Orillia, Ont, men, and is headed bv
Chew Bros., of Midland. They mean
business and will operate largely,
exporting mainly to the prairie markets. They have staked nine limits
of tine timber at the head of Wilson
creek and they are desirous of securing more. If the Evans creek limits
were moro accessible, Slocan would
stand a show of being made the
headquarters of tiie syndicate. As it
is, they hope to do considerable business here and with the mines.

Editor Dkiix:
Sir,—In a letter over the signature
of Canadian in today's Issue, objections are raised against the Provincial Progressive Party on general
principles, from which the following
samples might be culled and collected: "Idealistic but Impossible 'ads,"
"No room for a third party," "aHe**
grafters," "Socialtotle and Labor
combination springing from an alien
graft," etc. The a neve and some
hazy nation of "patriotic' predilection seem to be all we can expect
frem Canadian, even after directing
some little attention to the subject.
But he certainly could have given ns
the above array of generalities without the extra trouble lYcoBslderation.
Wbat we would Ilka to kn«w is* 1.
What particular plank or planks in
the platform are idealistic and Impracticable? 2. In view of the wholesale alienation of the public resources
the continual refust-.l of tha present
parties to protect *thc white producer
frem the Oriental scourge, failure to
carry out party pledges, etc., how
csn he satisfy himself that there is no
room for a third party? 3. What
have the alien grafters got te do with
the Provincial Progressive' Party or
platform? 4. In conclusion, weald
it not be well fer our pseudo Canadian to let us know if true patriotism
does net consist in loyalty to heme
and country, so as to be guided in
improving the condition of the pee
pie, protecting our homes by wise and
just laws in order that happiness and
prosperity would prevail among the
masses rather than the parrot crv of
alien grafter!.Socialism (labor organization 1 whenever n patriotic move-,
ment is on foot to protect the public
against tbe real grafter who profits
by.class legislation?
Whilst always ready to acknowledge room fer improvement in the
Progressive Party and platform, we
not only deny all of Canadian's allegations, but we challenge him to
prove them. The Provincial Progressive platferm is an embodiment
of the crystallized thought and highest intelligence of all the organized
labor and reform bed ies in the province of British Columbia—a sublime
protest against corrupt class legislation and, as such, is entitled to fair
and honest criticism, equally valuable to tbe voter and the legislator.
By way of preparation, however,
some slight knowledge of tbe.facts
will be necessary, which, If accompanied with an honest desire to draw
just conclusions, would, in the case
of Canadian, probably save us all
from theory of Wolff Wolf I wben
there is no wolf.      J. A. Folk.

Slocan, May 23.
Victoria Day Celebrated.
There being no call for an •exodus
up the lake this year, Slocan had a
celebration nil her own on tho 24th,
and It was the more enjoyable for
having been gotten up in a hurry.
In the after noon the rifle club held a
shoot, the young men played lacrosse
and football, and the juveniles held
nn innings on Main street. Tbey
had all kinds of sport, and the fun
derived not only pleased them but
amused their elders, in the evening
some liberal handed spirits purchased
sweetmeats and gave the kids a general scramble, so rounding out for
them an enjuvable holiday.

wss the young widow of an old baronet She was also tbe daughter of an
earl and tbe sister of his successor.
Sbe therefore enjoyed the freedom of a
widow, tbe happiness natural to youth
and all tbe privileges of rank. No woman could be happier. It was reported
that ber love of the card table had
greatly Impaired ber Income. The
world said that ber own private dowry
wss wholly gone and a large part other Jointure.
She kept a small establishment In
Mount street Iler people consisted of
no more tban two footmen, a butler, a
lady's maid, a housekeeper and three
or four maids, wltb two chairmen. She
did not live as a rich woman. Sbe received. It is true, twice a week, on Sundays and Wednesdays, but not with
any expense of supper and wine. Her
friends came to play cards, and she
held tbe bank for them. On other
evenings sbe went out and played at
tbe booses of ber friends.
While the frlseur was still completing her head Lord Fyllngdale was announced. The lady blushed violently.
She sat up and looked anxiously ln tbe

"You look divine this morning. It Is

to believe wbat they most desire to be

"I bave beard something of tbe matter, it Is almost time, I think, to give

"Bicept In yoa I think you know

"If yon wonld always speak so kindly!" Her eyes became humid, but not

The society or club, which ts never
dissolved, consists of the notables or

tbe master of tbe school, my own father, Captain Crowle and otber retired
captains, tbe doctor, some of tbe more
substantial merchants, wltb tbe mayor,

Jack Pentecrosse—you nil know Jack-
the worthy son of his worthy father.
He will take a glass wltb us. Sit dowu

"With the permission of the society,"
I said.
Most of tbe gentlemen had already
before tbem their pipes and their tobacco. Some bad ordered their drink—
a pint of port for one, a Brown George
full of old ale for another, a flask of
canary for a third, and so on. But the
captain, looking round tbe room, beckoned to tbe girl who waited. "Jenny,"

must be a bowl or balf a dozen bowls.
Tell your mistress, Jenny, a bowl of
tbe biggest and tbe strongest and the
sweetest Gentlemen, you will drink

of Lynn."
But then a thing happened. News
came wblcb drove all thoughts of the
Lady of Lynn out of everybody's mind.
Tbat toast was forgotten.
Tbe news was brought by tbe doctor,
wbo was the last to arrive.
Doctor Worship was a person who
'""ibltually carried himself wltb dignity.
"Gentlemen." Tbo doctor laid his
hat upon the table and bis cane bsv
sldo It. Tben be took bis chair, adjusted bts wig. put on bis spectacles,
and tben, laying his bsnd upon the
arms of tbe chair, be once more look
ed around tbe room, and all tbis in the
most Important dignified, provoking.
Interesting manner possible. "Gentlemen, I bave news for you."v
Captain Crowle made answer, speak
Ing In tbe name of tbe society. "Sir.
we await your pleasure."
"My news, gentlemen, Is of a startling character. I will epitomise or
abbreviate It In a word, therefore,
we are ell about to become rich. All
you wbo bave houses or property lu
tbls town, sll wbo are concerned In
tbe trade of the town, sll wbo direct
tbe Industries of the people or take
care of the health of the residents,
will become, I ssy, rich."
The doctor pulled out a pocketbook
from which be extracted a letter. "I
bave received," be went on, "a letter
from a townsman, tbe young man
named Samuel Semple—Samuel Semple,"' ho repeated, wltb emphasis, because a look of disappointment fell
upon avery face.
"Sam SempleP growled tbe captain.
-"Once I broke my stick across bis
back.'* He did not however, explain
wby he bad done so. "1 wish I bad
broken two What has Sam Semple
to do wltb the prosperity of tbe town?"
"Mr. Sam Semple," tbe doctor continued, wltb emphasis on the prefix,

future add luster to our town."
Tbe vicar shook his bead. 'Trash!"
be murmured.   "Trash!"
"Well, gentlemen, I will proceed to
read tbe letter."
He unfolded It and began with a
sonorous bum:
"'Honored sir.*" He repeated the
words, " 'Uonored sir.' The letter, gen

No disease can cause more severe

ill with this awful trouble about live

many have asked him how it was
done that he has decided to give the

Dodd's Kidney Pills, for be said they
had cured his mother. I thought I
would try tln*m, and bought a box.
"Just ono week after I began the

he sat, all unconscious of tbe colonel's
presence, his rifle laid against the tent,
himself burled In slumber. Qently the
rifle was lifted from Its place. But
some good angel awoke Paddy In tlmt
to see the colonel making bis way to
the guard tent. Paddy missed his rifle
at once nnd followed tbe colonel wltb

Outside the guard tent stood tbe
wooden rack which held the rifles of
the gunrd. aud Into It "Old Daddy" placed Paddy's rifle, himself entering tbs
tent to call tbe sergeant In charge.
This was Paddy's opportunity. He
grabbed his rifle ond was back at his
post In an Instant. Thc colonel brought
tbe sergeant outside and ordered blm
to count tbe rifles.
"All correct, sir." said the sergeant
"Nothing of thc sort Tbere Is an ex*

for I put It there myself."
"I beg your pardon, sir, but tbe number Is quite correct." again replied tbe
somewhat amased sergeant.
"Come with me—come wltb me this
instant, and I'll soon let you see wbat
I mean."
The sergeant followed his chief, wondering what was going to happen.
"Haiti Who goes thero?" rang out
clear and sharp in tbe nlgbt air from
the now wideawake Paddy.

When men first begin .to become familiar wltb tbe -methods of measuring
uieclmiilcul power, tliey often speculate
on .where the breed of horses Is to bo
found tbat can keep at work raising
33,000 pounds one foot per minute, or
tbe equivalent, wblcb ia more fun-Ulnr
to some mechanics, of ralalng 330
pounds 100 feet per minute. Since 33.-
000 pounds raised one foot per minute
Is culled one horsepower It Is natural
tbat people should think tbe engineers
wbo established that unit of measurement bused It on wbat horses could
really do. But the horse that can do
this work doea not exist.
Tbe horsepower unit waa established
by James Watt about a century ago,
aud (lie figures were fixed in a curious
way. Watt found that tbe average
horse of bla district could raise 22,000
pounds, one foot per minute. At tbat
time Watt was employed.In tbe manufacture of engines, and customers were
so hard to find that all kinds or artificial Inducements were necessary to
Induce power users to buy steam en-
pines. Aa a method of encouraging
tlii'in Watt offered to sell engines reckoning 33,000 foot pounds, to a horsepower. And thus ho was the means of giving a false unit to ono of the most Important measurements ln tho world.

Food Becomes Distasteful and a Feeling   of   Weariness,   Pain   and
Depression Ensues.
From LeSorelois, Sorel,  Que.
Of the diseases afflicting mankind
dyspepsia is one of the worst to endure, its victims find life almost a
burden. Food becomes distasteful ;
they suffer from severe pains in the
stomach ; sometimes.excessive heart
palpitation, and a general feeling of
weakness and depression. Though
this disease is one of the most distressing, it is one which, if the proper remedy is applied, can be readily cured. Thousands throughout
this country bear testimony to the
efficacy of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ns
a never-failing cure. Among them is
Mrs. Adolphe A. Latrousse, a well
known and highly esteemed lady residing at Sorel,'Oue. ,She says:—
"For two years 1 was a constant
sufferer from bad digestion and its
accompanying symptoms. Food became distasteful and I grew very
weak. 1 suffered much from pains in
stomach and head. I could not ol>-
tain restful sleep and became unlit
lor all housework. I tried several
medicines without finding the least
relief and 1 grew continually worse
until in the end I would, vomit
everything I ate. I had almost given
up hope of ever being well again
when one day T read of a case simi-
ilar to mine cured through thc use
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.' I determined to give these pills a trial and
am happy today that I did so, as by
the time I had taken eight or nine
boxes my strength had returned, the
pains which had so long racked *me
disappeared, my stomach wcjuld digest food properly and I had fully-
regained my old time health, and
have not sinre had any return of the
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a puro
ly tonic medicine and unlike all purgatives do not weaken the system,
but give life and energy with every
dose. They are a certain cure for
anaemia, dizziness, heart troubles,
rhi'umtsitism, sciatica, indigestion,
partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance
and the functional ailments that
make the lives of so many women an
almost constant source of misery.

The principle upon which tbe manufacture of ice is based Is that a gas
when compressed gathers heat enormously, and if robbed of this boat and
allowed to escape at a future time It
seeks to regain Its boat by withdrawing heat from its surroundings. Ammonia gas Is generally preferred to
others because it can be liquefied with
[' comparatively little pressure. On removing tlie water from common ammonia by slistillatisiii anhydrous ammonia is obtained. This Is compressed
by a combined steam pump and a compressor, and the resulting liquefaction
Induces heat, which Is economlied by
circulating water nbout the vessel or
pipe containing the lli-ucllcd ammonia.
Thus f.ie ammonia Is cooled aud the
heat largely triinsferreil to the water,
which Is then pumped back to the
boiler that supplli'S the steam pump.
The liquid ammonia Is then carries! In
a pipe to expansion colls that afford
plenty of room for Its evaporation,
when It begins to return to the gasejus
form and to draw heat from Its surroundings, which gradually reduces
the temperature. I'ropcr vessels ot
water nro placed In contact with tho
expansion colls, ond In due time Ice
Is formed.
