A recent visitor to Slocan has sent
in the following contribution upon
his impressions of tlie city:
All that has been written of Lucerne and Maggiore, of Katrine and

city life and the more or less monotony -sf all ordinary natural scenerv,
it suggests tlie ideal of all thai is

I J'caupre. THE LADY
•Copyright 1900 by Sir Walter ll.-m.si.)
"No. I am your servant, as yon
know—sometimes your most unhappy
servant, but always at your command
-only now and then lt pleases roe to
call things by their proper names. At
such times, Ludovlc, 1 look ln my glass,
nnsi I see not tbe Lady Anastasia In a
company of fashion, but a poor wretch
Fitting In a cart with her arms tied
down, a white nightcap on ber head
and a prayer book In ber band. Tbere
Is a coffin In the cart"—
"Anastasia, you are ridiculous! What
have we done that all the world would
uot do If It could? These scruples aro
absurd, and these visions are fantastic.
What Is your share? Yon know that
half of mine—all that Is mine—Is yours
as well. You shall have my band and
my name. These you sliould have bad
long ago had they been worth your
picking up. Alas, Anastasia, no ono
knows better than you the desperato
contlitlon of my affaire!"
"Well, I will obey you.   I will go
back to town.    I   will go tomorrow.
Tbe otber parties In our Innocency-*
they will also go back, I suppose?"
"Tbey will have done their part. Sir
Harry and the colonel and the parson;
they will all go back.    Tbey cost a
great deal to keep, and tbey have don*
their work."
"Should I see the girl before I go?"*
"Perhaps not    Write to her from
Loudon.   Invite her to stay with you.
Kor my own part, I will look about me
for the man we want—a prisoner; on
the poor side; a gentleman, one who
will do anything for a guinea a week.
The girl will not know that he Is a
prisoner.   It will be quite easy"—
Ttais be said, concealing his real Intention, and only anxious' to get this
lady out of the way, but he left ber
suspicious and jealous. Tbat Is to aay,
she had already become both, and this
Intricate plot of a husband from th*
Fleet and tbe rest made her still more
suspicious and jealous.
Having dismissed Anastasia, ther*
remained the parson and the poet Tbe
latter he could send away at a day's
notice; the former be would probably
want for a certain purpose. He sent
for Mr. Semple, his secretary.
"Semple," he said. "I bave now made
inquiry Into tbe truth or your statements—I mean as regards this young
lady's fortune."
"It Is as I told your lordship?"
"It is. The fortune you bave exaggerated, but lt Is, no doubt, considerable. Well, I have sent for you in order to tell you that 1 am uow resolved
upon carryiug out the project you submitted to nie. My own affairs are, as
you found out, embarrassed. Tbe girl's
fortune will be useful to me. Her person is passable; her manners will be
Improved. I have therefore determined
to make her my couutess."
"My lord, I rejoice to have been the
bumble Instrument"—
"You have kept the secret so far, I
believe. At least I have seen no sign
that any oue suspects my Intentions.
You have Invented a Ile of enormous
audacity In order to bring us all together-myself, with your project up
iny sleeve, aud certain friends of mine
to assist lu various quarters. Your Inventions havo converted nn ordinary
well luto a health restoring spring.
You have CSUsed the elevation of this
town of common sailors ami traders
und mechanics Into a fashionable spa.
tjeuiplc, you are a very Ingi-nlous person. I hope tbat you are satlstled with
your success."
"Gratified, my lord, not satisfied."
"I understand. You shall be satisfied very shortly by the fulfillment of
my promise. It Is, If I remember, to
Und you a place under government
worth at least £200 a year, with per*
suulsltes. You shall learn, Semple, tbat
1 can be grateful and that I can keep
my word, written or spoken. Now,
there remains one more service."
He proceeded to give blm certain Instructions.
"And, remember, tbe greatest secrecy is to be observed. Neither you
uor tbe captalu Is to reveal the fact
until tbe business Is completed. Everything will be ruined if anything Is
revealed. Your own future depends
upon your secrecy. Yon are sure that
you have your Instructions aright?"
"I am quite sure, my lord. I am your
embassador. I come with n message
of great Importuucc. There nro reasons wby the proceedings nro to be
kept secret. Tbe lady will be made a
countess before a prying and Impertinent world can be Informed of your
lordship's intentions.   I fly, my lord.   I
"One moment friend Senple. Before you depart on this mission resolve
me as to a difficulty In my mind."
"Wbat la tbat my lord?"
"You are a***are, of course, that my
plan of life Is not quite what this girl
expects in a husband. She will expect.
In fact the bourgeois virtues-constancy, fidelity, early hours, regularity.
piety. You know very well that sbe
will not find these virtues. You are
preparing for tbe girl. In fact, a great
disappointment aud perhaps a life of
misery. If I siid not want her money.
1 might plry ber."
Sam's face darkened.
"Tell me, my friend, in return for
wbat acts of kindness done to you by
tbe captain or by Molly herself are you
conferring tbls boon upon the girl?"
Tbe poet made no reply for awhile.
Then he answered, bis eyes on the
ground: "Tbe thing Is as good as done.
I may as well let you know. The captain cudgeled me like a dog-like a dog.
My gratitude Is so great that 1 have
succeeded In marrying bis ward to you,
my lord. What worse revenge could I
"Frankly. I know of none."
"You will waste aud dissipate the
whole of ber fortune, and would If It
were ten times as great. In raking and
gaming; you will send ber back to ber
own people broken hearted and ruined.
That will be my doing."
"Friend Semple," said his lordship.
"If I were not Fyllngdale, 1 would be
Semple, and, to tell tbe truth. If 1 saw
any other way of raising money I
would—well—perhaps—1 would—even
pity tbe girl and let ber go."
HAT evening the blow,
feared and expected,
fell, for then we lost,
or thought we lost,
our maid. I found tbe
captain sitting In the
summer house alone
without the usual solace of his tobacco and his October
"Jack," be said, with a gloomy sigh,
"1 am now the happiest of men because my Molly Is tbe most fortunate
of women. 1 bave attained the ntmost
I could hope or ask. The most virtuous
of men—1 should say noblemen-has
asked tbe band of our girl Molly will
be a countessl   Kejoice wltb tne!"
1 stood outside on tbe grass, having
no words to say.
"She will marry him Immediately.
Nothing could be more bappy or more

as places ber on a levpl with the highest ladies of tbe land, though the
daughter of plain folk, with u shipowner for a father and a sailor's
daughter for a mother-there Is promotion for you, Jack!"
"She will go away, then, and leave
"Aye, she will leave us. Jack. She
will leave us. His lordship-you do not
ask wbo It Is."
"Wbo can It be, captain, but Lord
Fyllngdale V"
"The best of men. He will carry her
off to his country bouse, where they
will live retired for awhile, yet In sueh
state as belongs to ber rank. We shall
lose ber, of course. That however, we
always expected. Tbe country bouse
Is In Gloucester, on tbe other bide of
England. Perhaps she may get to see
us, but 1 am 75 or perhaps more, and
Jennifer, ber mother, Is not r.ir from
EW. 1 ennuot look to set eyes on her
again. Wbat matter." be hemmed
bravely and sat upright—"wbat matter, 1 say, so that the girl Is happy?
Her mother may perhaps set eyes on
her once more, but she will lie changed,
because, you see. our Molly must now
become a Hue lady."
"Yes," I groaned; "she must become
a fine lady."
"Jack, sometimes I am sorry that
she has so much money. Yet what
was 1 to do? Could I waste and dissipate her money? Could I give away
her ships? Could I give her, with the
fortune of a princess, to a plain and
simple skipper? No. Providence, Providence, Jack, hath so ordered things.
I could not help myself."
"No, captain, you could net help
things.   Yet"—   I broke off.
"Well, Jack, why dou't you rejoice
with me? Why the devil don't you
tough and sing? All you want Is to
see her happy. Yet there you stand
as glum and dumb ns a mute at a funeral."
"I wish her happiness, sir, with all
my heart."
"Sam Semple camo here this afternoon by order of my lord. Sinn gives
himself airs uow that he Is n secretary
uud companion. He CBJBS and demanded conversation with ine. It was quits
private, he said, and ot the utmost lin-
portnuce. Ko we sat tu tlie parlor, uud
with a bottle of wine between us we
talked over the business. First he told
mo that his patron, as he calls him,
meaning his master, had been greatly
taken with thc Innocence nnd the
beauty of Molly. I replied that unless
he was a stock or n stone or an Iceberg I expected nothing loss. He went
on to say that, although a noblo earl
wltb a long pedigree nnd a great estate, bis patron was willing to contract
marriage with a girl who wns not oven
of gentle birth and lind nothing but
her beauty and her Innocence, I told
bim that she had, In addition, a very
large fortune. He said tluit his patron scorned the thought of money,
being already as rich as most noblemen of his exnlted rank; that he was
willing nlso to pass over nuy defect!
In manners, conversation and carriage,
which would be remedied by n little
acqunlutoiiee with the polite world,
In n word, bis lordship offered his
band, Ids name, ills title, his rank and
himself to my wurd."
"His condescension." I said, "Is beyond all praise."
"I tblnk so, too; beyond nil praise.
1 nsk his advice touching a lnisliimil
for niy girl. He promises his assist*
ance In tbe matter, and he then offers
himself. Juck, could nuythlng ho more
"I hope It mny turn out so. What
does Molly say?"
"You may go In nnd nsk her yourself.
She will tell you more than she will tell
anybody else. The matter Is to be kept
for the present a profound secret lie-
tween bis lordship and ourselves. Bnt
since Sum Semple knows It, aud Jennifer knows it. and you ure one of ourselves, therefore you may as well know
lt too.   But dou't talk about lt."
"Why should It be kept a secret?
Why should It not be proclaimed everywhere?"
"My lord snys that tbe place Is a hotbed of scandal: that be would not bave
Molly's name passed about In tbe pump-
room, to be the object of common gossip and Inventions made up of envy
and malice. He would spare Molly
this. Wben she Is once married and
taken away from the plnce. tbey may
say what they please. Whatever tbey
say, they cannot do ber any harm.
Why. some of them even declared tbat
she was ono of the company of strolling actresses. There Is nothing that
tbey will not say."
I made no reply because It certainly
did seem as If In asking for secrecy
bis lordship had acted In Molly's Interests.
"Well, captain, we must make the
best of It You must Ond your own
happiness In thinking of Molly's."
"What aggravates me, Jaek. I* the
ridiculous behavior of my cousin Jen- j
nlfer. Sbe is ln tbe kitchen crying, and
tbe blnck with ber.    Go and comfort i
her before you see Molly."
I  looked luto tbe kitchen.    Molly's
mother sat In the great wooden chair
beside the fireplace. She held ber apron
In her hands as If sbe bad Just pulled
lt off her face, and the tears were on
ber cheeks.    When sbe saw me, tbey
began to flow again.   "Jack," sbe snld,
"have you heard the news?   Has tbe
captain told you?   Tbe worst bas bap- ;
pencd.   I bave lost my girl.   She Is to
be married   Sbe will go away.   She
will marry a man who scorns ber guard-
Ian and despises her mother.    A bnd
beginning. Jack.   No good can come of
such a marriage.    A bad beginning. !
Oh, I foresee unbapplness!   How can
Molly become a tine lady?   She is but a !
simple girU my own daughter.   1 hnve
made ber a good housewife, and all her
knowledge will be thrown away and
lost   lt Is a bnd business, Jack.   Nl- |
grn has been telling ber fortune. Ther* |
Is notblng boperul.   All tbe cards are |
threatening.   And tbe magpies and tbe
screech owl"—
She fell to weeping again, after I
which she broke out anew: "The cap-
tain says be Is tbe most virtuous man
In tbe world. It Isn't true. If ever 1 |
saw tbe Inside of a man In my life, I
bave seen tbe Inside of that man. H*
Is corrupt through and through"—
"But consider. All the world Is crying up bis noble conduct and bis many
"They may say what they like, lt Is
false. He Is heartless. He Is cold.
He Is selfish. He marries Molly for
her mouey. Persuade the captain, If
you can.   He will not believe me."
"How can 1 persuade him? I bav*
no knowledge. Are tbey all ln a tale?
Are you tbe only person wbo know*
the truth?   How do you know It?"
"1 know It been use I love my girl,
and *o I can read tbe very soul of a
man. I bave read your soul, .lack,
over and over again. You are true and
faithful. You would love her and
cberlsb ber. But this man-he knows
not wbat love means nor Uslellty nor
anything. Go. Jack. Tbere la oo belp
In you or ln nny other—because there
Is none other." She spoke tbe words
of the prayer book: '"None other thut
tightrth for us but ouly thou, 0 God!
Only thou, 0 God!' " She covered hs*r
face again with her apron and fell to
gobbing afresh.
So I went Into the parlor where Molly
was sitting. "Jack!" .She Jumped up.
"Oh, Jack!   I want you so badly."
"I know nil, Molly — except what
you yourself say and think ubout lt."
She bad ii piece of work in ber hands,
and she began to pull it and pick it us
she replied. For thc tlrst time in my
life I found Molly uncertain and hesitating.
"The captain snys that it Is the greatest honor thut wns ever offered to any
woman to be raised from a lowly eoiisll-
tion to a high rnnk. and all for love,"
"All for love?" I osked.
"Why, what else can It be thnt mndr
him light fnr me with that desperate
villain?   Be risked ids life.   Whatever
happens, Jack, i cannot forget that."
"No. It was doubtless u great thing
to do. Has lie told you himself that it
wns all for love?"
"He luiB not spoken nhout love nt all.
He has never once lii'eti alone with me.
It seems Hint these great people make
love by message. He sent a message
by Sam Semple"—
"A very line messenger of Cupid,
—"offering marriage. The captain
cannot coutnln his satisfaction ami sits
glum. My mother Rays that she will
never see me ngnln and begins to cry."
"Well, but, Molly, to be sure It Is a
great thing to become countcBS. Most
women would Jump at the chance under nny conditions. Do you, however,
think thnt you can love tho man?"
"lie hasn't asked for love. Oh, Jack,
to think tbnt people should marry
each other without n word of love! If
lie loves me, I supposo he thinks thai
I am hound to give hlin love In return."
"There again, Molly, do you love tlie
"Jnck, nobody knows me better than
you.   What reply can I mnke?"
"He Is too cold and loo proud for
you. Molly. How ran you love him?
Perhaps," I ndded, because I was very
sure that she would mnrry hlin, "after
marriage you will find that Ids cold
ness Is only a cloak to hide his nut urn I
warmth and Uiat Ids pride covers his
wife ns well as himself."
"He Is a good man. Everybody says
so. Lady Annstnslu declares that he is
the most honorable and high principled
of men. On tbat point I am safe. And
think. Jack, what a point It Is. Why,
to marry a drunkard, a sot. a profligate.
a gambler—one would sooner die at
once, nud so an end. But I can trust
myself with bim. I bave no fear of
sueh treatment as drives some wives to
distraction. Yet be Is cold In bts manner and proud In tils speech. 1 might
Und it lu my lit-art to love blm If I wns
not afraid of him." And so she went
backward and forward. He was so
good and so great; bis wife must ulways respect him. He was of rank so
exalted; it was a great bouor to become bis wife. Be wns so brave; she
owi-d her rescue to his bravery. Yet be
had spoken no word of love, nor bad she
seen any sign of love. 1 asked her what
sign she expected, and she "was con
fused. "Of course." she said, "auy girl
knows very well when a man Is ln love
with her." "How does she know?" I
asked her. "She knows because she
knows." I supi-osc she felt tbat the
man was not lu love wltb ber Just as
her mother felt tbat hi* character for
virtue and nobility waa assumed-
"corrupt within," sbe said. Women
are made so. And In the next breath
Molly repeated that what tils lordship
had done was done for love. "How do
you know'" I asked again. "Because
the captain says so," sbe replied, with
unconscious Inconsistency.
"Is tbe courtship to be conducted en
tlrely by messenger?" I asked.
"No. He will come tomorrow morning and see me. I am to give blm an
answer tben. But tbe captain nns already told blm what the answer Is to
be. Ob. Jack, I am so bappy! I am so
fortunate tbat I ought to be happy
Yet I am so downhearted about It.
Going away Is a dreadful tblng. And
wben shall 1 see any of you, I wonder,
again? Ob, 1 am so fortunate; I am so
happy"— And to show ber happiness
she dropped a tear, and more tears fol
Wbat kind of happiness, what kind
of good fortune, was that which couhl
(111 tbe mind of tbe captain with gloom
and could dissolve Molly's mother In
tears and could herald Its approach to
the bride by sndiu-ss which weighed
her down? And, as for me, yoo may
believe that my heart was like a lump
of lead within me. partly because I
was losing tbe girl I loved, but had
never hoped to marry, and partly because from tbe outset of the whole affair—yes, from the very evening when
the news of the grand discovery wa"
read to the Society of Lyon■-*. *..,n
looked forward to coming events with
forebodings of the most dlsmnl kind
"Come to see me tomorrow after
noon, Jnck." slip said "I tnusi talk
atiout it io some oue. With the cap
tain I cannot talk because he is all tor
the unequal match, and with my mother I cannot talk, because she foretells
trouble and will acknowledge no good
thing at all in tin* mini or in the match.
L>o uot forget, Jaek. Come tomorrow.
I slon't know how many days an* left
to me when I can nsk you to come.
Oh, Jack, to leave everybody, all my
friends! It Is hard. But I am the
most ungrateful of women because I
um the happiest—the happiest—oh,
Jack, the happiest and most fortunate
woman that ever lived!"

Tbo sulierer Iiom St. Vitus dance,
even in u mild form, is much to be
pitied, but when tbe disease assumes
an aggravated form the patient is
usually as helpless as an infant, and
lias to be watched with as much care.
St. Vitus dance is a disease of the
nerves and must bu treuted through
them, and for this purpose there ta
no other medicine in tho world acts
so speedily us Ur. Williams' Pink
Pills. Proof of this statement is
found in the cure of Miss Louise
Lullinun, whose home is at Poucher's
Mills, Ont., who was cuied by the.,e
pills after two doctors hud fuils.'d to
benefit her In the least. The young
lady's mother tells tho story ol her
daughter's illness as follows:—"1 do
j not think it possiblo anyone could be
afflicted with a more severe form of
I St. Vitus dunce than that which attacked my daughter Louise. Her
arms and legs would twitch und jerk,
her face was drawn and finully her
left side became numb as though par-
I uly/ed. Two doctors attended her,
but their treatmont not only did not
help her but she grew steadily worse.
Her tongue became swollen, her
speech thick and indistinct, and sin;
could neither sit still nor stand still.
She could not hold anything in her
hand ami it was necessary to watch
ber ull the time as we feared that
she would injure herself. The last,
doctor who attended her told me
sho would never get better, and it
was then I decided to try Dr. William's Pink Pills. After she had taken two boxs*s we could see an improvement in her condition. Hei -appetite improved, she could sleep better and the spasms were less severe.
From that on there was a marked
improvement in her condition and
one day the doctor who has said she
could not. get better called while
passing and found her ironing—
something she had not been able to
do for months. I told him it was
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that was
curing her nnd he said, "Well, I am
surprised, but continue the pills.
they will cure her." She used in all
eight or ten boxes and is now as
healthy a girl as you will find anywhere, and she has not since had a
symptom of the trouble."
If you are weak or ailing; if your
nerves are tired or jaded, s>r your
blood is out nf conslition, you will
be wise to use Dr. Williams' Pin!-!
Pills, which are an unfailing cure
for all blood and nerve troubles.

Word was brought down from the
Transfer on Wednesday night that
the ore body   had increi.sed  in the
drift.    Fit somo time past a crosscut
had  been  driven   to  the  west,   but
abandoned after 40 fuet, nothing ap-
penring to warrant further expendi* j
tu'v there.    The main drift, started
wli ui Sidnoy Norman took the bond,
was then continued, with gratifying
results.   Three stringers bad been
followed almost from the surface,ami'
the centre one now that solid ground
is being reached, has widened out to
L'O inches, and   it carries c*uitu a' bit:
of ore.   An open  cut  on tlie surface, I
too, has uncovered five feet of mixed ;
oro.   Mr, Norman estimates 150 feet-
more if drifting will tap the main I
ore chuto on the property.
