Messrs. Holman and Wing, lessees
of the Chapleau mine, Lemon creek,

and appear to be making a success of
things. They hnve a ten year lease

industry has made some mark in establishing a mimlfcu* of prosperous
looking ranches. The area which is
being brought into cultivation along
this line is growing larger each year,
and as conditions are favorable, it
should bea profitable calling to follow
in this particular locality. Lumbering
toil has some attention paid it, and at
several points are huge yards.showing
the quantity of limber which is being
sawed into lumber, A great deal of
it is of course shipped out.
"Slocan is rather quiet in a business
way, but the prospect of mining being
more actively prosecuted lends hope
tothe business man who nre established here. The town is well favored

goods than present trade would warrant. There are several huge hotels,
which could do a much bigger trade

Hut there are in the dlatriot tributary
to the town sullicient mines of value

done if thev were lieing Operated.

Y mil'Solium Piay Ore.
Pay ore has been found on tha 1000
foot level of the Ymir mine. Ymir. aud
five-feet of good me is being milled.
The find is important and demonstrates tbe theory that the ore chute
takes a sharp trend to the east from
about the (it);) foot level. On that
level the drift wns continued and the
pre body picked up some weeks ago.
Tlie management persisted in pushing
the 1000 foot level and success has rewarded their efforts. To date tlie
Ymir has paid $192,000 in dividends,
with the certainty of large profits during the coining year.

Consecon, Ont., Dec. 12.—(Special).
—Mr. David Rowe, a well-known and
highly respected farmer, living about
three miles from here, ls telling his
friends of his remarkable recovery
from a long period of suffering by
the use of Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"1 had very severe pains in my
back more or less upwards of two
years," Mr. Rowe says. "These pans
sterned to concentrate their full force
lu the small of my back, and the pain
was almost unbearable. It made me
go bent ever and I could not straighten up to save my life.
"When I went to urinate lt gave me
great pain, and you may imagine I
was not able to do much work. I consulted a doctor, but his prescription
did me no good.
"Then I started to use Dodd's Kidney Pills and I felt better by the time
I had used the tlrst box. Ten boxes
cured me completely."

Mr. A. P. Lowe, who was In chargo
of the expedition to Hudson's llay,
is onto more buck iti Ottawa, alter
an absence of ubout one yuur and
three months. He suys that from his
observations Hudson's Strait is navigable for about iour months each
year. He nntl his party wintered at
l-'nllerton Inlet, the extreme northwest point of Hudson's Day, ond in
.luly lant ctfniL* out by Hudson's
Strait to Port Durwoll, where the
Neptune met the Eric, and received
supplies of coal and provisions, lhe
arrangements for the meeting between the two steamers were so perfect that tliey arrived within an hour
of each other. Alter leaving Port
Burwell the Neptune proceeded along
the Greenland Coast to Smith Sound,
nnd Mr. Lowe went us far north as
Cape Sabine, where ihe saw Peary's
winter headquarters. This was about
the middle of August. He did not
intend to go any further north, but
could not do so if he had wanted,
owing to the accumulation of ice.
Ki'llrn at Fruiiklln.
The Neptune afterwards passed
through Lancaster Sound to Beechy
Island, where Franklin spent his last
winter. This island was tho headquarters of the Franklin relief expeditions, and thc remains of the old
houso arc still to be seen there.
At this point Mr. Lowe obtained a
record left by the Swedish Magnetic
Polar expedition. It revealed that
the party were all right in August,
1903,, and intended going down the
Peel Sound in order to get as near
the pole as they could. The Neptune
crossed over to l.eopold Harbor, on
thc south side of Lancaster Sound,
and thore saw the remains ol a
launch belonging to the Franklin Expedition and a quantity of provisions
left by tho Windward, a Dundee
Whaler, for the Swedish Expedition.
At Pond's Inlet Mr. Lowe saw three
boats of tho Dundee whaling lloot.
They had no whales on board. From
there tho Neptune went south to
Cumberland Gulf, where the ice was
very heavy, nnd afterwards passed
through Hudson's Strait under steam
to Fullerton Day, where they wintered. Two policeman were left at
Fullerton and two were invalided
home. The Neptune was then relieved by the Arctic. Mr. Lowe states
thnt he could havo maifr the northwest passag* if lu* had so desired.

The Brazilian flower known as ths
running antelope Is so called because
its white petals have a series of well
defined, dark colored lines and dots
In which the imagination can readily
trace the form of an antelope, with its
limbs outstretched and hend thrown
back, seemingly fleeing for its life. In
the "caricature plant" one species has
the imitative form on the petals, and
another has it outlined in the ribs and
shading of the leaves.
The last mention^ curiosity bears
a renin rkably well executed likeness
of the Duke of Wellington and has on
that account been named "Arthur and
His Nose." Among the orchitis the
imitative form Is entirely different in
character, being exhibited ln the shnpe
of the flower itself. Some are exnet
counterfeits of bees, butterflies, moths,
etc., while others take upon themselves the form of worms and beetles.
Naturalists believe that in the first instance it Is nature's trap to lure other
bees, moths and butterflies, but lu tne
case of the worm and the beetle, orchids or those that ure the exact counterparts of toads, lizards nnd huge
spiders, they do not attempt to ex-
nlnin.
SLEEPLESS   EABIES.
Well babies sleep soundl and wake
up brightly. When babies are restless and sleepless It Is tho surest
possible sign of illness—in all probability due to tho derangement of the
stomach and bowels, or teething troubles. Baby's Own Tablets are thc
only proper remedy. The.v remove
the trouble and in this way give the
little one sound, refreshing sl.*ep. and
it wakes up healthy and happy,
Guaranteed to contain no harmful
drug or opiate. Mrs. Thos. Cain,
Lortng, Ont.. says: "My baby suffered
from stoinach trouble and teething,
and wns quite cross, got Bab's Own
Tablets and the seemed to work almost like a charm. I think nothing
can eqiuil the Tablets for children's
ailmenis." You can find them atdrUn
stores or get them potpaid at 2ri
cents a box by writing the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
An Old  Shoe,
A young couple recently started on
their wedding tour. A shower of rice
and old shoes followed them as they
entered the railroad conch. After the
train pulled out the bridegroom saw
an old shoe lying ln the aisle. Supposing it was one that had been thrown
at him, he picked it up and dropped it
out of the window. An old man across
the aisle wakened a few minutes later
and begnn looking for thnt particular
shoe. Tbe bridegroom bad to buy him
a new pair.

"My dear,*"* said Mrs. Henpeck, "I'm

"Well, I only hope so," returned Hen-

ACHING   KIDNEYS.
Can Only Be Cured by Enriching the
Blood by the Use of Dr. Williams
Pink Pills.
The kidneys filter every drop ot
Vour blood. The purity of the bloo-1
lepend upon the kidneys—and thi
health of the kidneys depends u;:o:
the blood. If your blood is weak thi
kidneys have not strength for the'i
.vork and leave the blood unfiltered
and foul. If your hlood is had the
kidneys get. clogged with painful,
poisonous impurities. That is what
causes your backache with the dui:
pains or sharp s'abs of sick kidneys.
And kidmy disease is one of the
most deadly and hopeless things
that can attack you. Th? on'y hope!-

The greater Canada.
Lord   Minto  Ssr*   tn*   Future   ol  the Do-
uiliilun Pane* Imagination—The
Old Onler I'aeelng.
At the farewell banquet given to
Lord and Lady Minto, tha retiring
Governor-General   said:
"I can assure Your Worship that if
during my term of office 1 have been
fortunate enough in the fulfilment of
my duties to earn for myself the appreciation of tho people of tho Dominion, I ask for no greater rewnrd
and now I may say tho same for
Lady Minto. Her interests have always centred largely in tho welfare
of this country and the happiness o'
its everyday life, and it will always
be a delight to her to hear of thc
further success of work which she
has very much at heart.
"But to-night. Your Worship, there
is a 'rift' in the lute. I now have
come to say good-bye. I have run my
race in Canada, the awkward fences
and the nasty turns aro things of the
past, and I cannot ride it over
again. It is not for me to say whether the course has been easy or difficult, but it has certainly been full
of interest, and, after all, gentlemen,
It has only been the first heat in the
great Imperial stakes which it rests
with the people of tho United Kingdom and the people of Canada to
win or lose.
"I hope Your Worship will absolve
me from any intention of trespassing
in the domain of politics, but perhaps it may not be out of place for
me to glance very lightly at the history of tho past six years that have
gone by since, ns Governor-General. I
set foot in tho Dominion. Thoy have
been years of marvelous prosperity,
of great advancement in commercial
wealth, of great development of the
magnificent resources of this wonderful country, but greater influences in
tho history of Canada than any of
these have come into existence.
Problem* of tlia Kutuie.
"A great man has raised considerations'as to the Imperial responsibility of the King's subjects beyond tho
seas, and a great statesman is aiming at directing into one common
channel the interests of the Motherland, and her self-governing dependencies. We are in a transition stnte,
the old order of things is passing
away, colonies are becoming nations,
with a notional sentiment of their
own, but—I say it as strongly as I
can—with no diminution of affection
to tho Motherland from which they
6prang. We aro face to face with a
problem full of dilliculties, no doubt.
Conditions are changing, and wo cannot afford' to stand still. Now that I
am leaving you, I will only say,
work out the problem with all deference for the traditional doctrine of
the Old World, with full regard for
the hopes of vour risincr nationality,
with ail respect for racial traditions,
but remember always that what i.s
good for thc Empire is good for Canada, and what is good for Canada
is good for the Empire.
Canada's  Splendid Province!.
"Your Worship, I have traveled
much throughout tho length and
breadth of tho Dominion, and, proud
as Canadians are of their country, 1
believe they can hardly exaggerate its
future possibilities. I have just returned from the Northwest. The Territories are, as you know, not new
to me, but as the other day I rode
through thc Saskatchewan Valley,
beautiful beyond description in all
the brilliant coloring of the fall,
across prairies still strewn with the
skeletons of extinct buffalo herds, past
Indian battlefields of only a few-
years ago, and as I found settlements growing into villages, villages
into prosperous towns, and immigrants pouring into tho land, 1 realized that wc are at the commencement of a new era. Your Worship, I
can at any rate bear witness to tho
splendid promise of Canada's future.
1 can go home to tell thc people of
the Motherland that their kinsmen
here beyond the sens are, by their
own energy, day by day developing
Imperial resources and Imperial
wealth, the vast ness of which is as
yet but little known. I hope I may
always share in the aspirations of
the Canadian people, nnd, Your
Worship, I can assure you Lady Minto and T will take home with us the
warmest recollections of our Ufa
here, and will never forget the farewell we have received from the citizens of Montreal."
I'lnlftaaneaa of War.
At the recent meeting of the Women's National Council in Toronto,
Mrs. By Ies drew attention to tha
population of Canada—five or six
millions—and said that there was
that number of men in the European
Continental armies in time of peace.
They earned nothing and did nothing, but their fellow count rvini'ii had
to pay for their support While tbey
practiced  the art  of killing.
ln dozens of recant wars there hnd
been only loss for both winner and
loser. The soldier was promoted and
lhe contractor gut rich, but the nation lost. England hnd once a War
to keep the Bourbons from IIm'Spanish throne. They had another to put
a Bourbon on the throne of Franco,
No Bourbon would over reign in
Franco  ns  long as  the  world   lasted.
The L'nited States had a war und
pot the PhilliplneS, Now the.v Were
guessing what to do with the new
territory. Britain had a war. She
gained the Transvaal nnd achieved
her point. But tilings were never
worse in South Africa, Men Were

An Incubator Without Cash
Until October,  1905
"here is big money to be made in raising chickens with an Incubator.
Canada expo.-ts annually millions of chickens to the United State! and
Great Britain.
The consumption of poultry in Canada is increasing rapidly and the
poultry dealers complain that they cannot get enough poultry to fill their
orders.
Cne woman bought a No. 3 Chatham Incubator the first of March
—tlie had five hatches by July first and had four hundred plum?,
sturdy chicks. In six months her Incubator had paid her Jtoo.oo, several
t.mes its cost.   A Chatham inc.ibator should pay lcr itself each hatch.
We have perfected .".n Incubator and brooder. We beileve it is now
absolutely the best in tlie world. We have sufficient capital behind us, and
we are out for tlie entire business in incubatou. We know tiiat there is no
other incubator that can approach the
Chatham Incubator
This is our proposition : To demonstrate our absolute confidence in the Chatham Incubator
we will send one to you, freight prepaid, and you make your first payment in October, 1905.
The fact that we sell our Incubators in this manner guarantees them to the fullest extent.
Thirty days' trial is a delusion and a snare. If you have good luck you may get off one hatch in
that time, and even then you are uncertain, and if you reject the machine you will have to pay the
freight both ways. But with us you send in your order and we ship the machine prepaid. When
it arrives, if it seems all right, start your hatch, and we will give you until October, looj, before
you have to pay a cent in cash. We positively guarantee that the machine is a good hatcher.
Every machine should sell a dozen, and we will, on no account, allow a machine that il defective
to remain in any neighborhood.

joined and was on the staff of the
1st. Manchester Royal Volunteers, and
was drillmaster of the Industrial
School at Swinton
During his military career Mr.
Bailey had by no means forgotten his
craft. While in Gibraltar he was mechanical superintendent of the Gibraltar Chronicle, a small daily published by the officers of the garrison.
In tho fall of 1809 Mr. Bailey returned ti-j Canada, and at once secured a position a;-j foreman of the
St. Mary's Argus and Kincardine Review. A little later he was proofreader for the job department of the
Toronto Globe, and for nearly four
years contributed articles to several
Toronto papers. After leaving the
Globe he acquired the Oakville Express, which he published for seven
years, selling out that paper to take
the general management of the Woodstock Times. Next we find Mr. Bailey
mechanical manager of the Sarnia
Observer. From tlienco he went
across to Kalamazoo, Mich., and over
twenty years ago came to the Canadian West. He becahie the editor and
manager of The Mountaneer, a long
forgot ten paper published at the long
deceased town of Nelson, Man. In
those days tho Mountaineer was a
power in tho land, its ediior, Mr. Gal*
brith, being one of the most able
newspaper men of the pioneer west. It
was owing to Mr. Galbraith's ill-
health and his being ordered to British Columbia, that Mr. Bailey became his locum tenons. On Mr Gal-
liraiih's return Mr. Bailey came to
Winnipeg, and took over the publication of the C. P. R. Register. A little
later he removed to Brandon, and
continued the publication of the Register, changing its name to the
Nonh west Vindicator. After a few
months tho Vindicator again pitched
its moving tent, locating finally at
Rapid City. Being appointed county
clerk. Mr. Bailey sold the paper to H.
C. Clay, its name being again changed
to tlio Rapid City Reporter, of wliich
Mr. Clay is still the proprietor,
In 1893 Mr. Bailey resigned his
county court clerkship, went to Morden and there started the Herald,
which he subsequently sold to Messrs.
Borthwick and Fox. His next journalistic venture was the Wawanesa Enterprise, which was a failure from
lack of support. Ho moved the plant
to Emerson, whore he started the
Journal. This. too. he sold to Messrs
Ballantyne and Hartley. MacGregor
was tho scene of Mr. Bailey's nexteM-
terprlse. At this point bo started the
MacGregor Herald, which, after seven
years' successful] operation, he sold
to Iho Rov. A. Chisholm. His final
migration was to Estevan, where he
Started the Mercury, which he is now
publishing, In partnership with his
sons.
In tho pioneer days of tho province Mr. Bailey took an active part
in the organization of the Farmers'
Union movement, and did much to
promote its success, until it, was
wrecked by the attempt to run polities and tho wheat trade In tho same
groove. Mr. Bailey was C. P. R emigration commissioner in Ontaii.i in
1886, and managed the exhibition car.
travelling through the whole of that
province on the most successful tour
it ever made.
As may bo judged by the foregiing
Mr. Bailey is a pronounced optimist
He has a boundless belief in both tho
present and the future of the Canadian Northwest, and has certainly sacrificed much in contributing to its development—developments which ho
has done much to promote by his pen
and on the platform. He ls one of Ihe
most familiar figures at press conventions. His pugnacity and pertinacity
In debate being only equalled by his
uiifailiig good humor.

In fact, the result of the election may
be regarded in the lighl of a popular
