Do not go past  its door when
you are dry, weary or hungry.
Notwithstanding the warning contained in the last i'*suc of TheDbill,
Col. Prior, minister of mines, persisted in coming to this burg, landing
here on Monday. It did not take him
long to lind out that tlie charge made
against his confreres wub true—that
no money was spent in the division
this year on trails—and he acknowledged the corn like a man, and said
it was a downright shame, which was
very nice of him.   Thc colonel had
no bustling reception when lie came,
ns his corning was unexpected, but it
did not take long for the folk to get
next him, and  he soon had his ears
filled with tales ef wants for the division. He listened a while and then
went up to the Arlington mine, accompanied part of tlie way by Chas.
Hurlburt of the Kepublic mine, and
■Sidney Norman of the Black I'rince.
The colonel returned to town about
8.30 p.m. and then the fun was ra-
, newed.
He has promised to uso his influ:
j ence to get government assistance to-
I wards  repairing   the old  Springer
road up to its junction with the Kepublic road; to assist in constructing
a new piece of read along tho south
side of Springer from the halfway
tu the Arlington;   to   improve  the
Black Prince and Ten Mile trails; to
reconstruct the Lemon creek road;
and to gut a road into the ranchers
in the Little Slocan Country,    lie
said it was a disgrace and shame tlie
way the camp had been neglected, as
its merits were recognized by tlie
government.   In this connection lie
enunciated a new idcu in provincial
politics, that, where the local member was oppostd  to the govti'nnii'Ht,
tlio government agent should iiavc
the expenditure of the annual appro
priatitniH.   ile did   not   believe   in
members spending innnioi tu  help
out their friends, but nails should be
built to benefit the  whole camp.   In
ilia past too much unniey had been
squandered for personal ends, but a
halt would be called.
The government wonld no doubt
be blamed, but tliey were also deter*
mined, the colonel said, to get after
the epeculatorsanel force them to pay
! their taxee on wild lands and crown
granted claims. The 1 tier should
be f reed to work and not permitted
ta bo benefited by other people's operations The two per cent tax, lie
quite saw, bore  too  heav.lv ou the
low grade properties and tho question called for close investigation. In
the lead camps it was a question of n
tariff to protect the lead industry,ainl
ii was the duty oi the government to
encourage tho mines as much ws pes
si bio. He believed it a good idea to
allow the prospectors to record trail
work ns assessment, for it would
open the country ami save Iho government much money.
Col. Prior thought tho great trouble with the country was too much
tinkering with the Mineral Act, and
lie did not want to see it touched
again in yean. There was also too
much freak legislation brought Into
the house, which had a baneful ef
feet. What the country wanted was
pcaco and lie would use his best en
deavors to secure It. Labor and
capital sliould get to know and understand each Other and a better fee'
ing would soon prevail.   Were t'*'*

It Is the intentiou to commence
work on a permanent scale on the
May group, Twelve Mile creek, next
month. The group was bonded and
taken over by Charles Dempster and
associates, who purpose putting much
money in the venture. From the
small vein a five-ton shipment of oro
was mado last winter, netting tho
original owners good returns. Recent
prospecting on the ground uncovered
a vein 135 feet in width, with one
iw,.ll yet to get, and all carrying
values.   It is a huge proposition.

(Copyright 1600 by Sir "ITa Her Berant.)
l-MiiaHy he abandoned his learned
Tlew nnd adopted our more modern
explanations of the ease—viz. that the
marriage was a'shiuu anil that the
woman was some creature suborned
to personate Molly.
"But what woman ean she be?" asked the vicar. "She can write. 1 bave
seen tbe registers.   She bas signed In a
full, round band without bad spelling.
The woman, therefore. Is educated. My
ds*ar. we m«y perhaps find the woman.
My worthy ami pious brother in orders
Is most certainly In the conspiracy.
When there are three, one Is generally
n traitor. To begin with, the scheme Is
both bold and dangerous, lt Ib the
lira* step toward obtaining a large sum
of money under false pretenses. Their
necks are In danger, even the neck of a
uoble earl.
"It Is Inconceivable," be went on after a little reflect lou. "how a woman
could be found to play sucb a part. She
aiusi be tbe mistress ot tbe earl. No
olher could be trusted."
"Wbat should be done meantime?"
"We must meet lhe s*nemy on his own
ground. He spreads abroad the report
that be married Molly this moruug.
We must publicly and openly deny the
ftfct Captain, there will be n largo
company at tbe assembly this eveulng.
You will take Molly there. I will go
with you. Jack sball put on bis Sunday best and ahall also go witb us. We
must be prepared for an impudent
claim, and we mift-t be ready wltb a
prompt denial. Let us court publicity."
This was clearly the beat advice possible. We were left unmolested all
ibe afternoon, though tbe captain made
me stay as a kind of garrison In case
of any attempt at abduction being
In tbe evening Molly In her cbalr and
dressed in her finery was carried to tbe
gardens, while tbe captain, the fleer
and myself formed a bodyguard.
We arrived after the dancing bad begun. Lady Anastasia was looking on.
but ber court of ladles and youug men
for some reason seemed to have melted away. She stood almost alone, save
for tbe support of the old bean Sir Harry. Tbe colonel was also witb ber, and
the Rev. Benjamin Purden stood behind her.
Tbe music was In tbe gallery at tbe
end of the long room. The dancing was
carried on lu tbe middle. Lady Anastasia was standing on the right of the
gallery, most of the company on tbe
left Molly, with tbe captain and follow *d by the vicar and myself, turned
to the left
On ber entrance all eyea were fixed
upon tbe newly made countess. Sbe
bad come witbout ber lord! Was this
part of the secret—a secret known to
oil tbe world—or was his lordship, before the whole company, about to lead
his bride to the first place, as became
ber newly acquired rank? Some of tbe
ladles regarded ber witb looks or hatred, tbe successors of tbe looks of
scorn wltb wblcb they had first welcomed her. Most of tbem. bowever,
were kindly. A tale or love always
meets with a friendly reception. Not
a woman In tbe place but woultl have
taken her place with Joy unmeasured.
As no other woman could, ttiey were
ready to accept their fate and to make
friends wltb the successful and tbe
fortunate winner of so great a prize.
It was a great prize. Indeed, If tbey
only knew.
Tbe minuets were over and tbe country dance was abont to begin when
Lord Fyllngdale arrived, followed, as
usual, by bis secretary. He stood at
ibe door; be looked around. Then,
with tbo cold pride which never failed
blm. be stepped across the room and
bowed low to Molly. "Minium," be
aaid. "wltb your permission, we will
dance tbla country dance together before I take you away with me."
I "My lord." replied Molly aloud, so
that tbe wbole company heard ami
trembled, "1 sball not dance with you
tbls evening nor on any otber evening."
"Sbe will never again dance with
you, my lord. Nor will she bold auy
discourse with you. Nor will she willingly admit you to ber presence." It
was the vicar who spoke, because the
man and the occasion proved too much
for the good old captain, who could
only roll thunderously between his
teeth things more tilted for the quelling of a mutiny than for dealing with
sucb a man ns his lordslilp.
"Pray." sir." said Lord Fyllngdale,
stepping buck, "whnt ls the mennlng
of this? Pray, madam"- he turned to
Molly—"what Is the meaning of this
sudden change? Captain Crowle, have

Tbe vicar stepped forward and con
fronted him. His tall, thin figure, his
loug cassock, his thin and ascetic face,
contrasted with the overhaughtiness
of his adversary.
"My lord." he asked, "how long baa
tbis lady been your wife?"
"We were married," he said, "at 6
O'clock this morning by the Rev. Mr.
Benjamin Turdea, who is bere to bear
witness to the fact. The wedding was
private at my request, because, as you
may perhaps believe. I was not anxious to Join in the wedding feast with
a company of boors, bumpkins and
"Ladies and gentlemen"-the vlcai
raised hia voice and by a gesture silenced the orchestra—"I have to lay
before you a conspiracy which I believe Is unparalleled In any history.
You are aware that Lord FyllnMnle,
who stands before you. came to the
spa a few weeks agp for purposes best
known to himself. You will also doubtless remember that certain persons
who arrived before blm were loud ln
his praises. He was snld by them to
be a model of all the virtues. 1 will
not repeat the things that were said."
"All this," said Lord Fylingdnle, "Is
beside the nark. I come to claim my
"Among those wbo accepted these
statements for gospel was Captain
Crowle. the guardian of the young lady
beside me. It was to him a great honor to be admitted to converse with so
distinguished a nobleman and to be
permitted to consult with bim as to the
affairs of his ward. He even Informed
his lordship of the extent of the lady's
fortune, which Is far greater than was
generally understood. Thereupon his
lordship began to pay attention of a
marked character. You hnve all, I believe, remarked these attentions. Tben
came the attempted abduction and the
lady's rescue by Lord Fyllngdale. After this he formally offered bis hand
and his rank to the lady. Tbe honor
seemed very great. He was accepted.
He then engaged the lmly to undertake
a private marriage without festivities,
to which she consented. She promised,
in fact, to be married at St. Nicholas'
church this very morning at 0 o'clock."
"All this." said Lord Fyliugdale coldly, "la quite true, yet why you detain
tbe company to the narrative I do not
understand. The lady kept her prom*
tse. I met ber at the.place aud time
appointed. We were married. Once
more, Captain Crowle, I claim my
"Ladies and gentlemen," the vicar
continued, "there Is but one reply to
the last statement, for the lady did not
keep her engagement."
"Sir"—his lordship advanced a step—
"are you aware of the meaning of
words? Do you assert that I was nol
married at that time aud In that place?"
Tbe Rev. Benjamin Purden advanced. "Sir," he addressed the vicar. "like
his lordship, 1 am amazed at these
words. Why. sir, I myself-1 myself
at 6 o'clock this morning performed
the marriage service as prescribed by
the cburcb for tbe right honorable tbe
Earl of Fyllngdale and Miss Mary Miller."
"at votra periu"
7 tbls time tbe company were CTowding
round, eagerly listening. No oue could understand wbat bad
happened. The bridegroom claimed bis
bride. The bride's
friends denied tbat she was married.
"Yesterday," the vicar went on,
"there arrived simultaneously three letters. One of tbem, nn anonymous letter, was addressed to Captain Crowle;
one, from a respectable bookseller in
London, was addressed to Mr. Pentecrosse, master of tbe grammar school,
and one, from a certain fellow of bis
college at Cambridge, waa addressed to
me. All these letters together contained charges wblcb show bow deeply we
have been deceived."
"Have a care! Have a care!" said
Lord Fyllngdale.
"By these letters and otber sources,"
tbe vicar continued, "1 learn first as to
tbe noble lord's friends tbe following
"I Und that tbe Lady Aunstasln Laug-
ston hath been lately presented by the
grand jury of Middlesex for keeping a
house riotous, of great extravagance.
luxury. Idleness and 111 fame.
"1 am Informed that Lady Anastasia
hath held a bank every night in tbla
place, to tbe hurt and loss of many.
"1 turn next to the case of the Rev.
Benjamin Purden, who stands before
you. He was tbe tutor of Lord Fyllngdale. He ls described as the companion of his vices. He waa the cause lust
year of a grievous scandal nt Path, lie
Is thc author of a ribald piece of verse,
by which he has si .opted many. No
bishop would sanction his acceptance
of the smallest preferment."
"This Is very surprising." said Mr.
Purden, shaking his big hend, "but we
shall see, we ahall see—Immediately."
"There are nest the two gentlemen
known ns Sir llnny Malyns nntl Colonel Lonyon. Their occupation is to net
aa decoy ducks, to lure young men te
the gaming tnble and to plunder them
when they are caught."
Both tin-so gentlemen started, but
neither replied.
"1 now come to the noble lord before me. He Is a inoRt notorious profligate. He shores in Lady Annstasla's
ginning house. lie bus loin* slueo been
refused admittance Into the houses of
persons of honor. He Is an Inveterate
gambler. He has ruined hla own os-
tnte, sold the family plate and pictures, library, everything. He Is at
this moment unable to borrow or to
rnlse the smallest sum of money. The
Fleet nmi the King's Bench prisons are
full of the unfortunate tradesmen who
trusted him and tlie young rukes whom
he hits ruined.
"Ladles and gentlemen, this wus
the story which reached us yesterday,
fortunately iu time.  Miss Molly broke
off tier promise and wrote to bis lord-
ah!p for explanations. Captain Crowle
called upon his lordship tbls morning
for explanations. He was met witb
derision. He was told that be wns
too late—tbe young lady was already
married; there was no necessity for
any explanations."
The company murmured. Voices
were raised demanding explanations.
"My friends," said bis lordship coldly, "these inventions need no reply.
I claim my wife."
"She Is not your wife," said the vicar.
"We are ready to prove tbat at 0
o'clock the young lady was already
engaged with her mother ln the still-
room or some other occupation. Of
that there Is no doubt possible. But'"—
and bere he lifted a warning finger,
but his lordship paid no attention—
"there was a wedding early thla morning. His reverence, Mr. Purden, performed the service. The wedding was
In the name of Mnry Miller as bride.
The registers are signed 'Mary Miller.'
This ls therefore a conspiracy."
"You talk nonsense," said bis lordship, who certainly carried lt off with
an amazing assurance. "I clnim my
wife. Once more, madam, will you
come with me?"
"I am not your wife."
"We must endeavor," said the vicar,
"to find the woman who personated
Miss Molly. The clerk of the parish
testifies to the wedding, but be does
not appear to have seen the face of
the bride. Whoever she was she wore
a domino-aud had thrown her hood
over her face."   "
The Lady Anastasia stepped forward,
agitating ber fan. "Reverend air," sho
said to tbe vicar, "in matters of society
you are a very Ignorant and a very simple person. It Is quite true that I have
been presented by a Middlesex Jury for
gambling. It is also true tbat balf London might also be presented. As for
the rest of your statements—that, for
Instance, Lord Fylingdnle shares In the
profits of my bunk—let me assure you
that your Innocence has been abused.
These things are not true. However, It
Is not for roe to answer public Insults
In a public place. Sir Harry, my old
friend, they call you a decoy, even you,
with your name and your reputation.
A decoy! Sir, your cloth should shams
you. Sir Harry, tnke me to my chair.
If. tomorrow morning the company
thinks proper to dissociate Itself from
this public Insult I will remain In this
place, where, I own, I bave never
found many friends. If not, I shall return to London and to the house presented by the grand Jury of Middlesex."
So Baying, sbe retired smiling and. aa
they say of soldiers, lo good order;
with ber. also ln good order, the ancient beau, wltb no other signs of agitation than a trembling of the knees,
and this might very well be laid to the
account of his threescore years aud fifteen or perhaps fourscore.
Lord Fyllngdale once more turned
to Molly.
"Madam, for the last time"—
"Send blm away—send him away."
said Molly.   "He makes me sick."
"We deny the marriage, my lord."
said tbe vicar. "Tbat is all we bave
to say."
"At your peril." replied bis lordship.
So saying he walked away uumovesl
apparently. Mr. Purden and -Colonel
Lunyon went with blm. Both men
were flushed In tbe cheeks and restrained themselves by an evldeut effort I waa sorry for 8am Semple, for
be followed, his face full of trouble
and disappointment
When tbey were gone, the vicar spoke
once more.
"Ladles and gentlemen," be sold,
"we have thought It best to court the
greatest publicity possible in tbls matter. The people whom we have exposed will not again trouble this com
pany by their presence. I know not
what tha law may decide In this fuse,

Is above the law, rcmalim thnt nn Imposture of the most during kind bns

And with these wards he offered hie
band, to Molly, nnd we withdrew uml
the music struck up a lively country
IHKN, six

months Inter,
rued from a
cruise, I found that
Lord Fyllngdale, having agreed to leave
Molly free, had been

without resistance of
the hulk of her fortune ninl was making "ducks and drakes" with It iu London.
There came Into my head the thought
thnt I might somehow, by going to
Loudon, find out what inuniier of life
was led by my lord and In what ways
he wasted and Bcnttercd Molly's sub
stance. 1 could do nothing to stop or to
hioder the waste, yet wheu one knows
the truth lt is generally more tolerable
than the uncertainty.
1 thought over the plan tor some
dnys. it assumed clearer shape. It
became a purpose. Molly, for her part,
neither approved nor disapproved. Sbe
wus for letting the man who pretended
to be her husband work his wicked wilt
und do what be pleased provided that
be left her ln peace.
The end of It was that I went to
London, riding with a small company
and meeting with no adventures on the
way; that 1 put up at one of tbe Urns
outside Bishops-rale and that I found
out my cousin and put the whole case
before him. He was a grave and responsible citizen, a churchwarden and
of good standing In the Stationers'
"You want to know how Lord Fyllngdale spends his money. I can help
you In this business."
It was by tlie kltid offices of this gentleman, whom I found to be a person
of quick wit and ready understanding,
besides being of a most obliging disposition, that 1 was enabled lo see with
my own eyes an evening such us my
lord loved. As for the details, you
must, if you please, bold ine excused.
Let it suffice that our ebservatlous began at a gaming house and ended nt n
tavern. At both places 1 kept In the
background because 1 would not be
recognized by Lord Fyllngdale.
He enme in to tbe gaming table with
tbe same lofty, cold carriage which he
bad shown at our bumble assembly.
He advanced to the table; he begau lo
play. No one could tell from his lordship's face whether he lost or won. In
half nn hour or so my friend returned
to my corner. "He has lost a cool £300.
They are whispering round the tnble
that be loses hundreds every evening.
All the world Is ns'.'ing what gold
mine be possesses tbat he can stand
these losses."
"1 know his gold mine," I replied,
with a sigh. "But It is nearly exhausted."
We staid a little longer. It was about
10 or 11 in the evening tbat bis lordship
left tbe table.
"Come." said my friend. "I know tbe
tavern where he will spend the next
three or four hours. I can take you
there. The bowls of puuch and the
company and everything Is provided
at his lordship's expense. Mr. Pentecrosse, It must he not a gold mine, but
a mine of Oolconda, to bear tbis profu
"I tell you. sir, whatever It Is, the
mine Is nearly run out."
"It will not be bad for tbe morals of
the town when K> has quite run out."
As regards the tavern and Us com pa
uy, it Is Indeed astonishing to me thnt
any man should find pleasure In such
a company and In such discourse. Ai
the bend of tbe table Bat my lord. He
appeared to be neither pleased nor tils
pleased. The drink flowed like a stream
of running water. It seized on nil anil
made their faces red. their voices thick
Tbe noble lender sat unmoved, or. If
moved at all, tben by a kind of con
tempt At 2 o'clock be arose ami walked out Into the street where his cbalr
awaited blm.
"This Is his humor," said my guide.
"Play Is bis passion. It Is the oue thing
that he lives for."
So I had learned all that I wanted to
know. It was now quite certain that
we were within a very short distance
from tbo end. The lauds and houses,
tbe fleet and the business would be
sold.   What next?
The day after this experience In the
life of a rnke I paid a visit for the
first nnd only time to St James' park
In tbe afternoon. It was, I remember,
a cold but clear and bright dny In
January. At the gates stood a crowd
»f lackeys and fellows waiting for their
ladles nnd stamping on the ground
to keep off the cold. Within a goodly
company walked briskly up and down.
They were the great people of London whom I 8uw bere. While 1 looked
on, admiring the dresses of the Indies
and the extravagances of the gentlemen, who seamed to vie with eueh
other In calling nltentlon to themselves
by their dress and by their gestures,
there passed me, wnlkiug alone, a lady
whom nt tlrst I did not recognize. She
started, however, nnd smartly tnppetl
my hand with ber fan. She cnrrietl lhe
fan. although It wns winter, Just ns the
beiius dangled their canes from their
"Why." Bhe cried. "It Is my sailor!
It Is surely Jack I'entecrossel"
Then I recognized the Lady Anastasia.
"And what Is Jack Pentecrosse doing lu this wicked town? And bow ts
Molly, the countess? Come. Jack, to
my house. It Is not fnr from here. I
should like n talk wilh you ami to hear
the news. And I will give yon n dish
of ten. Why, I left Lynn In disgrace—
ditl I not? On account of the grand
Jury of Middlesex? It was thnt evening When Lord Fylingdnle turned upon
his enemies."
Her house wss not very fnr from

and charming manner, ns If ibe wus

as  If  she  had  always  been  thinking

She placed ine In u chair before the
lire. She sat opposite. Kin* rang the
bell nnd called for tea. Then she began to talk about Lynn am] iis people.
"Tell me, Jack, about yuur friend
Molly, is she reconciled in ber rank
nnd title yet? I believe that she dues
uot live with her husband."

No disease can cause more severe
and dreadful pain than Gravel. Heu-
ben Draper, of this placo, was taken
ill with this awful trouble about live
years ago. He was cured and so
many have asked him how it was
done that he hus decided to give the
whole story for publication :
"About live years ago I was taken
ill with Gravel. 1 suffered great pain
so 1 sent for a doctor. He gave me
some medicine und came to see me
twice afterwards, but my disease
was not gone, and in a short timo 1
had another very bad ultack.
"This time 1 sent for another doctor, with about the Same results,
only 1 wus getting weaker all the
"Then a man advised me to try
Dodd's Kidney Pills, for he said they
had cured his mother. 1 thought I
would try them und bought a box.
"Just one week after I began the
treatment I passed a stone as large
as a small bean, and four days later
another about the size of a grain of
barley—this gave me great relief,
and 1 commenced to feel better and
to gain strength right away.
"That was five years ago, and I
have not had any trouble in that
way since. 1 have the stones in a
small bottle und anyone can see them
who wishes. Dodd's Kidney Pills
certainly saved my life."
The story of Mr. Draper will be
good news to many sufferers who
may not have known that Dodd's
Kidney Pills always cure Gravel and
Stone  in the Bladder.
What has cured this gentlemen and
hundreds of other very bad cases
should cure anyone, and those who
may lie attlicted ns Mrl Draper was

the camp will have more mines
working than ever before. There
are now but really few idle men in
the country as it is and there will
have to be an importation to meet
the increased demand.
Strange what notoriety Slocan is
getting these days. Col. Prior was
told in tlie Boundary camp not to
come here for fear ot personal violence, as it was a nest of anarchists
'and agitators. The Ontario Slocan
Sawmill Co. were told the same
thing up the lake, But both outfits
have been here and they escaped
scot free, Moreover, they are in love
with the place and are coming again,
the latter to stay. Stranger still is
it that there is more capital coming
in here than any other camp enjoys;
and further, that bad as it is, there
has never been a labor trouble here.
