Whether the timber lauds surround*
Ing the Littlo Slocan are tinder iv reserve or not, is a question that is at
present attracting much attention.
The territory has always been supposed to lie embraced within ths* land
granl of  the Columbia .-»•  Western
railway and no notice of its cancellation has yet appeared, The reserve
presumably covers also ah land to the
Kootenay lake. Despite this, however, the government has accepted applications to purchase and pre-empt
lands right along, though apparently
denying limber leass-s.
For some tinm past there has exist-
a'd much uncertainty about the validity of tin' supposed reserve and a determined effort is now being unlde to
test the question. Locations of timber
have been made in the territory east
of Slocan river,and a glance at the advertising columns of The Drill will
ti'll what is being done on the west
side in the Little Slocan country.
ln the latter ss*ction there is a large
area of magnificent timber of all
kinds, and it has been long and ar*
deutly covi'ted. Local parties have
ivpeat-'dlv staked the ground, only to
be told it was not open to location.
Interested parties all over the country
have had their optics on that timber,
but not till within the last few days
has a firm move lieen made to acquire
possession. J. II. Christie, of Ross-
i.ind. acting for parti.is in that citv.on
'.110*221)11 and 28rd of March, staked
10 square miles of the laud along the
Little Sloean river and take, embracing die pick of the timber. Two sets
of local parties have also staked land
out there, including portions, if not
all. the ground claimed by the Boas-
From thi' above it will be seen that
there is some fun ithead.nnd the lands
it works department is up against it.
Probably they will cover themselves
by declaring the (.". st W. reserve still
bmding.thea proclaim its cancellation
in the regular way. That would pro
cipitate a general scramble, in which
the early bird would get the worm.
The Ottawa has struggled hard all
week to get its ow down so as to send
out a car, but the soft roads have prevented it. There is therefore another
blank to record for the week.

seemed the chief Intruders rather tlmn
tbe guardians of tbe place. Uremia.
for all tbat was upon ber mind, felt the
desecration and shuddered nt It.

against the railings, stood ereet and
put their shoulders together as Bremln

fill sll the space and tbelr heads to tower to the house top. But tbe thing must
be gone through with now. aud Uremia
gathered all her force.

"Is sue dead?"

In her mind, but this one Uttered itself
The policemen exchanged a glance
Then one of them replied with a single
word, "No." At this moment there wns
a stir In tbe hall. Hearing It, the policemen began slowly to descend the
steps. Uremia retreated before them.

pressed Into the edge of the crowd at

black vehicle. A brisk young man,

carriage assumed the aspect or a miracle, and all things seemed to move or
stand by virtue of a new force, silent
aud resistless.

"No one knows me here," she replied.
"My name would mean not la lug to

The polieemnn begun to ascend the
steps, but he paused at sight su' two
men who appeared above. One of
ihem wns of medium stature and very
heavy, having the build of an npe. witb
preposterously long arms, which swung
aimlessly when lie moved, as if the.v
were artificial Ile wore lhe Uniform
of a police captain. The other was of
a conventional type by coniporlsoii-
atfer t/<ue litis fixed upon the course, scarred face ul the co/tlata
that is, be looked like n human being,
nnd Bremln noticed little else about
bim. Her gaze was fixed upon the
coarse, scarred face of the captain, bru
(ally cynical and smiling without purpose, like an image hacked out of wood.
Tbe polieemnn saluted his superior
and addressed him In n low voice.
Without waiting for him to finish Ihe
'■.■iptiiln turned quickly to the man who
iiisi come out of the house with blm
and asked a question which Brenda
did not hear. When this man looked
at her, Brenda became aware tbat he
was tall aud thin and thut he wore a
loose gray suit.
*'l don't know," snld the man In grny
thoughtfully.   "I can't be sure."
The captain descended the steps and
lifted his cap willi the pollteuess of a
trained animal.
•Miss Williams?" said he. "Yes. Indeed. I understand that you are a
friend of Miss Miller, the girl that got
hurt, and that you'd like to talk to Dr.
Blair. This gentleman Is Dr. Blair.
So perhaps we'd better all go luto Iho
house, where we can talk more convenient."
Brenda tried to pass him, but she Immediately found herself between the
captain and one of the policemen, by
whom she vus s'scorlesl lulo the house,
the physician walking ahead. Thus
they came to a small parlor, opening
from the hull, to the right.
In the pretence of Dr. Blnlr. whose
manner was that of the worlsl Wherein
she had moved, Uremia regained a part
of her self possession. Thu simple s'le-
gtince of the room, far beyond anything
Unit slu* had expected, helped to put
her at her ease, and shu begun to feel
tin' sense of personal dominance to
which sho was accustomed.
"Dr. Blair," she snld, "I really don't
know why I -should have come here. I
am not a friend of Miss Miller. 1 ara
merely Interested In ber. Seeing the
story of her terrible misfortune In a
newspaper by the merest accident, I
obeyed an unaccountable Impulse and
came to tbls bouac."
"Aa unaccountable Impulse," said tha
faptaln !n a perfectly meaningless
voice, as tf he had beeu sn echo,
"1 can tell you very little," replied
Dr. Blair. "No one knows who committed the crime nor why It wus done"—
"But will she die? Sueh a young
girl, with so much to hope for, and they
say she was very beautiful!"
"She was, poor chlldl" responded ths
physician. "And that fact may or may
not bave had something to do with her
misfortune. As to ber chance of recovery, I greatly fear—Indeed, to be frank
with you, I doubt whether she Is living
at this moment."
Brenda was as white as paper, and
ber hands were twined together.
"She has not spoken"— she began,
•nd tt was the captain who replied.
"Not s word," said he. "But we
shan't need anything from ber. We
shall get to tbe bottom ot tbls affair all
Brenda tnrned slowly toward blm.
"The name of a gentleman," snid she,
"an acquaintance of mine, was mentioned In the uewspaper account, a Mr.
Alden. Of course it ls Impossible that
be should have bad any connection
wltb this wretched crime, but perhaps
he knew the young woman and"—
"Yes," responded the captain, "they
were acquainted. And, by the way,
perhaps you're familiar witb tbe young
gentleman's handwriting. We found
a uote on tbe letter bead of his firm.
Let me see, what did I do with It? Oh,
bere It Is. Perhaps you'd like to glance
It through."
He extended bis band, but Brenda
did not take tbe sheet of paper wblcb
he offered.
"I could not read this," she said,
with a slight shudder. "It waa not
meant for me."
A faint expression of surprise humanized the oiiicer's face for a moment.
"Tbat don't make any difference," he
said. "It'll have to be published. Everybody 'II read It."
Brenda glanced at Dr. Blair, who
bowed his bead.
"In that case." she said, "though it
seems an outrageous Intrusion"—
"There's no help for It," rejoined the
captain, with a grin, which be used ln
place of a frown. "We've got to find
the person that done this deed, and
we've got to make use of this note to
do lt."
Brenda took tbe paper and read these
"Uy Dearest Dear—All goes to well thst I must
send word to you at one*. I csn't wsit till even-
ing, when I msy see you, snd. Indeed, desr lore,

clothes snyhow.    Ah, my beloved"—
Brenda bad come to tbe end of tbe
first sheet Her face, that hud been so
pule, was flushed, and ber voice was
not quite ateady as she said:
"I can't read any more. It Is dishonorable and unnecessary."
"Ah, my beloved," said the captain,
taking the letter and reading the remainder aloud In n stumbling voice,
with half an eye on Brenda all the
—"we shsll be to happy, youth tnd lore tnd
money snd th* whole world befor* us—the summer in Norway, the fall upon the continent, th*

In the captain's mouth these love
words had the sound of blasphemies,
and Brenda shrank back to the limit
of the room with Dr. Blair, who seemed to be scarcely less affected by the
"Tbe money wnsn't found," said the
officer nfter a brief, shrewd scrutiny of
Brenda. "Tbe note was on the tnble,
but none of those hundred dollar bills
tbat we read about. Come; I'll show
you where we found It."
"I don't think I want to go In there,"
said Brenda faintly. "1 am going to
the hospital to see whether I can be of
any belp to her."
"You'll have to arrange that through
the police," was the reply, "and It can't
be doue until I get some word from
there. So I suggs'st that we take another look nt the scene of the crime."
lie stepped back from the door, and
Brenda passed out of the room, Intending to leave tbe house, but agalu sbe

'LSI E'S room opened
straight from the hall,
at the rear. Tbere
was a sort of vestibule, wltb a sliding,
glass paneled door lit

this spuce waa divided lengthwise by a curtnln, behlud

white tub, an unusual luxury In cbeap
Beyond the vestibule wns a room of
good height and size, with a shallow
alcove on the left, In which stood a
pretty brass bedstead. Upon the right
was an unused open fireplace beneath
an old fashioned marble mantelshelf
which wns covered with a quaint and
picturesque collection of Houviinirs.
There were two tail windows In the
Hsiutliern wull. The lower sashes were
hinged at the sides, opening Inward,
and one might step out upon a wooden
balcony of tbe length of the room.
which was the width of the houso.
Somo crude, familiar pictures hiinp,
upon tho walls. Obviously they antedated Elsie's coming and expressed
Mrs. Simmons' Idea of borne decoration. Elsie's contribution to the adornment of the scene consisted almost entirely of photographs of men and women. One might guess the calling of the
tenant after a glance at tbe portraits,
for nearly all of these peoplo were obviously In "the profession." Tbey appeared singly or in groups formed by
fastening the photographs together
wltb dainty bits of ribbon, io that halt
a dozen might be suspended in tbe
fashion of a banner.
Whatever may be said of the artistic
value of tbls decoration, It certainly
brightened the room. It was impossible to be lonely wltb so much com-
pany and sucb vivacious people. Nine
ln ten of tbe women were smiling and
many wore fancy dress. Tbe men
struggled to seem chivalrous ond
courtly, except the comedians, most
of whom were In grotesque attire.
Two photographs, larger than the
average and well placed between the
windows, represented   young   men In

assassin bad struck her down.
"From all I can learn," said the captain, "sbe must have been about bere
wben it happened."
He took hla place beside a couch that
was between the windows and turned
his face to the wall.
"The murderer," he continued, "was
behind her. Tbe murderer pulled her
bead back and stabbed almost straight
down. The girl fell on the couch;
here's the blood. And the murderer,
convinced that Bhe was dead, dropped
the knife and fled."
He turned to Brenda with a questioning leer. Sbe was more culm thnn
sbe bad been; her mind was more
alert She had noticed bis peculiar
avoidance of a pronoun, and she asked
him without emotion whether there
Was any doubt that the assailant was
a man.
"We don't pretend to know anything nbout It," he replied, "but there
are certain circumstances which lead
ua to suspect that It might have been
a woman. A gentleman who was
passing the house about the hour wben
tbls tblng must bave been done saw a
woman coming out. Now,- except for
Miss Miller, the lodgers In this house

trace of this woman. We don't know

she didn't ring tbe bell nor make any

said Brenda. "Sbe may only bave ascended the steps nnd then, finding
that this was not tbe bouse that she
had supposed It to be"—
"Or changing her mind for any reason," the captain continued. "Quite
right I see your point But the woman wore a heavy veil; she seemed to
be somewhat excited, and sbe hurried
away eastward— I think you suid
eastward, Dr. Blolr?"
"Toward Broadway," responded tbe
physician, with embarrassment.
"It's a pity you didn't notice her
more particularly," said the captain.
"I'd give a dollar or two for her description Just now."
"You can't get It from me," replied
Dr. Blair. "Tbere was no reason why
I should pay any particular attention
to ber. Sbe was a well dressed, stylish looking young woman, and that's
all I know about her."
Brenda looked at him steadily for
some aeconds.
"Dr. Blnlr." said ahe, "what did this
officer ask you on the steps just before I came In?"

The London Globe, in common tins..
on an article entitled "Canada and
Imperial Ignorance," which a.., enix-d
in a ri'i'ciit issue of The Monthly Review, says; "Not only do we fail
to grasp th0 historical and political
problems of Canada, but thc g.'ont
mass of working men are wholly unaware of the potentialities of ' that
vast country. A Canadian lecturing
in tbis country was once tuckls.*d by
a Working man. '"si'ister,' said the
Interruptor, 'can you tell me what's
the good of all this talk about Empire and federation and ships wi en
lots of ub here are starving?' This
wus tho lecturer's opportunity. lie
told the audience that in the land be
came from were millions of acres of
rich lund untouched, "It is a s'oun-
try as big as tho United .States of
America, and bus only 5,000.000
people—no more than you have here
heaped upon each other in this sweltering city.' The writer of the article appeuls to the common sense of
tho English people and asks Whether
lt would not bo wisdom to spend the
£12,000,000 dOVOted every year in
this country to the mnintenanre of
paupers in some bold and comprehensive scheme of emigration. Ir,
spite of emigration offices, the subject does not get homo to the bo^
oms of men, and until Carlyle's hero
arrives to lead our surplus population forth to the Golden West, something might well lse attempted by
the State to rem Ier emigration easy

' In 1897 I was at the point of death

Street, Ottawa, llis was a remarkable case, indeed, so remarkable that
we afterwards got him to make his
statement under oath belore a notary public.
" Mr. Kent is a printer in the employ of the American Dunk Note
Company. He suffered "or four
months from Bright's Disease, and
hud actually reached the stage when
the doctors declured he could not
live till the next morning. While
thc sorrowing wife wait-sad by his
bedisdc watching for the end, her
eye chanced to fall on an advertisement which said that Dodd's Kidney
l'ills  would  cure Bright's   Disease.
" As a drowning man grasps at a
straw, so this despairing woman
grasped at this lost chance to save
her husband's life. A messenger was
procured, u druggist roused out of
his bed, u box of Dodd's Kidney Pills
bought, and the dying man given his
tlrst dose. That dose brought an
improvement, gradually the pain
ceased and health returned. It took
seventeen boxes to cure him completely. Dut that's seven years ago,
and he's been working every dny
since. Surely a cure like that is
enough to make the whole world believe that Dodd's Kidney Pills will
cure Bright's Disease.
Where the Trouble Lies.
■' The whole trouble is in making
people believe. This is a skeptical
age. lt used to be ' If you see it in
the paper's it's true. Nowadays it
is ' If you see it in tlie papers don't
believe it.' If we could bring the
people here one at a time and let
them read these letters, or bring
them face to face with the men and
women who wrote them, our .struggle
would be over, for the whole world
wouisl admit that Dodd's Kidney

He found  th,; management sutislied,
but by no means surprised,
" No, ' was the answer to the reporter's question. " We ere not surprised that the public generally are
at length being forced to tho conclusion that Dodd's Kidney Pills will
cure Bright's Disease. We have known
lt for a long time ourselves. The
Parker cure is only one of many of
which we can furnish proofs.
A Ssjii-silislKI's Press'i-I|stisiii.
" The troubles in these cures have
been made by what is termed a
' patent medicine.' Hud they been
made by a physician in the regular
way, and thut physiciun had been
able to tell exactly how he brought
them about, they would have been
talked of learnedly from one end of
the country to the other. But when
people tnlk about our cures there is
a tendency to say, ' Oh that is only
a patent medicine advertisement.'
" They forget that Dodd's Kidney
Pills are thc life work of a doctor.
That they have been uniformly successful in treating all diseases of the
Kidneys, and that the only feature
in which they differ from regularly
sMitniiu-sl medical advice is thut the
prescription of a specialist is given
the public at popular urices.
Nfli Kiii.in for Doubt.
" Now, you have seen the particulars in the Parker case. Nobody can
doubt for an instant thut that was
a veritable case of the ' incurable '
Bright's Disease, neither can anyone
doubt that the cure was effected by
Dodd's Kidney Pills aird by no other
agency. Of course, it took time und
perseverance ; but the patient was
in the last stages of the disease hsj-
fore she started to use Dodd's Kidney Pills. Had she started sooner
thc work would have been easier end
the n*sults would have been obtained
treme case and took time."
" You know of other casss of
Bright's Disease that have been cur- ,
able and all carefully investigated
und attested to by reliable people.
Surely you would think that as doctors can give no hope to those
threatened with this terrible disease,
there should be no hesitancy in giving Dodd's Kidns-y Pills a trial. Aad if
Dodd's Kidney Pills can cure Bright's
Diseaso, the most deadly forai of

of the kidneys, and In the twelve

FRIDAY, APRIL 3rd, 1903.
Every person breathes easier in
•Southeastern British Columbia with
the settlement of the Fernie strike.
Peace is assured for two years.
Tardy justice is lieing done the province by the Ottawa government. A
bill has Ix'en introduced increasing
the Chinese head tax to $500, which
will practically exclude the Mongolians. Sir Wilfrid Laurier says he has
tho assuraiice that the supply of Japs
has also boon shut off i;y the Mikado.
That Vancouver election was not without results.
Ralph Smith, having taken time to
size up the situation in British Columbia, has announced that he is not
seeking the leadership of the provincial Liberals, and has so given a rebuff
to the Vancouver soreheads. Ralph
is gaining in wisdom. It must not be
imagined, however, that the breach in
the Liberal ranks is healed; not a bit
of it. The machine will not down so
easily. So long as Joe Martin is in
politics ho will meet  with opposition.
Another milestone has been passed
in the career of The Drill and, with
this issue, it enters upon the fourth
year of its existence. Slocan has had
other pajiers, but none of its predecessors suc«»txied in reaching the mature
years of The Dbill. a fact worthy of
note. Whether or not the paper will
ripen iuto a sturdy old age, the future
alone knows, but, one thing certain, it
will not yield up the ghost whilo there
is an even chance for an existence. It
rises or falls with the destinies of the
town. From the outset tho paper has
had a clean record, no recriminating
personalities or petty vindictivoness
finding lodgment in its columns. It
has stood by the lx*st interests of the
camp and town and its owner has the
satisfaction of knowing that his efforts
in that respect have b-en appreciated.
Of late evil times have befallen the
country, resulting in ;t curtailment of
the earning capacity of the paper, but
brighter days are   ahead anil it will
come again to its  own.   Thero are
those, perhaps, who could do more for
their town's welfare by patronizing the
printer, but it must come of their own
free will, as coercion will  never Imi attempted.   Others again   have   stood
loyally by Tub  Drill  from the first,
and they  have ye editor's heartfelt
thanks.   The paper has been a direct
financial lienefit to the town, for, not
only has the  revenue derived locally
found its way back ngnin among the I
tradespeople,  but much   more  from
outside sources.   And just here let it
be said The Drill cannot exist on a
pittance.    It  deserves  support   from
every section of tlie cotnuiuuity and!
has a right to expect it.   But a*, in the
past, so in the future:  this paps.r will
always be found  advocating and  encouraging those thij,'-s which ts'tnl to
benefit the camp.   It will stand  for
no dictation, but  will  aesvpt  advice
willingly and thankfully.    All it asks
is fair play and prompt payment of its
bills.   The citizens have pride in their
town and,   undoubtedly, will  gladly
support what is to them the chief f.i"
tor in keeping Slocan   liefore the outside world, Tin: Drill.

Modern usages proclaim advertising the
