KVBMIMQ.
Permanent Organisation Effected and

Address Made by Chris Foley, President of Pro vlnalal Association.
Saturday evening* a public meeting
ot the electors of the city was held in
the Union hall, on behalf of tlio Provincial Progressive Party. The attendance was large and much interest was evinced in the proceedings,
particularly from the fact of the presence of Chris Foley, president of tbe
provincial association, who had arrived from Sandon on the noon boat
Geo. Nichol acted as chairman and
John Foley secretary. A resolution
•vas passed to organize a club ofthe
Provincial Progressive Party here*,
and to this end the following officers
were elected: President, 6. Nichol;
vice presidents, T. B. Hall and J. V.
Purviance; sec-treasurer, John A.
Foley; executive committee, Alex.
Stewart, D. D. Robertson, and D. B.
O'Naail. Regular meetings of the
club are to be held each Saturday
evening.
After a short address bv J. V. Por
viance, on the events leading ap to
the formation of the Provincial Progressive Party, Chris Foley was introduced as the speaker of tbe evening. He gave a stirring address,
lasting nearly two hours, on the
leading planks of the party platform,
claiming that no lasting peace or
prosperity could prevail until tlioae
principles became the established
guiding rule Ib the management of
public affairs. His appeal to business
men to join the party, if for no other
reason than support compulsory arbitration in order to prevent strikes
and lockouts,  was most convincing,
nd proved the thought of the statesman rather than the politician. Mr.
Folev's address was about tho boat
yet listened to by thc Slocan electorate.
The Progressives are actively organizing all over the province, club*
having also been formed at Viets-ria,
Nanuiino, Vancouver, Kamloops,
KnssLaiid, Sandon, Silverton, New
Denver and Nelson. All tbe other
centres of population will bu visited
by Mr. Foley and clubs organized
and everything put into trim for the

Monday evening a meeting of the
executive of the local club was held,
nt which the ful lowing resolution was
passed, and which was ordered sent
to the press for publication: "Whereas it is being persistently rumored
throughout this riding and elsewhere
that wo ofSlocan are and have been
dissatisfied with the results uf the late
Kamloops convention, and  that we
arc finding all sorts of fault with the
platform promulgated atthe said convention; and whereas, it is furthered
rumored that, unless wc can name
tho  candidate    (or  this  riding  at
the next election, we will not feel under any obligation to  support the
nominee or platform of tlie P. P. Party;
and whereas,  other villainous and
malicious lies equal to the above-
named are being assiduously   and
cunningly circulated by parties wishing to cause a division in our ranks,
thereby endangering the chance at
the polls of electing a candidate of
onr party selection: therefore, be it
resolved, that the above and ail similar reports, having a tendency to create discoid in the labor ranks, are
premeditated and malicious lies, and
that there is not the least foundation
on which to build them, except one
of fear of tiie result of an election
wherein the labor vote is solidly cemented together; and, be it further
resolved, that we of Slocan arc in
hearty   accord   with   the    platform
adopted at Kamloops by the newly
born  P.P.P., and,  while believing
we have men in our midst fully competent and able to creditably represent this or any other riding in the
provincial house, vet we are asking
no favors, but are now, as we have
ever been,  ready and willing and
anxious to accept and support the
candidate chosen by thc nominating
convention, whenever or wherever
held.   Hoping this will set at rest all
fear with regard to Slocan and Its
agitators,   we bid tlie   P. P. P.  God
speed aud wish it all the success of
which it is deserving—no more, no
less.   John Folev, secretary; Alex.
Stewart, D. D. Robertson, and D. B.

JUDGMENT R"5VKiVl<CD.
J. Frank Collom Wins Appeal aa Native
Silver Fractlan.
Word was received in tha city on
Friday from Ottawa to the effect that
J, Frank Collom had won his appeal
against Mark Manley over the Native Silver fraction. Manley won in
the preliminary case at Nelson and
also on the appeal earried by the de
fendant Collom to the full court at
Victoria. With the reversal of the
verdicts of. tho lower courts, the Ottawa judges allow full costs for the
preliminary suit and subsequent ap
pea la These will amount to fully
$10,000, and should the case go to
the privy council in England the
costs will be about doubled.
The suit arose over the ground lying between the Burlington and Arlington claims, on Springer creek,
embraced in what is known as the
Native Silver fraction. Tho ground
had been originally ataked and abandoned, finally coming into tbe possession of Charley Haller, foreman at
the Arlington, and Bob Cooper, one
of the original owners of the latter
mine. Haller sold his half interest to
Mark Manley. The Arlington companv restaked the fraction, claiming
a grievous error in the possession of
the ground by Haller ana Cooper, and
also in the staking of tbo same. As
tbe Arlington No. 1 fraetion, a crown
graat was applied for by the com
panv, which was protested bv Man*
lev, as owning thc bailer interest
Cooper had disposed of his half to the
company, as well as the Burlington
fraction, restaked also by the company and called the Stepltenite fraction.
Manley entered suit against Mr.
ICollom, as manager for the Arlington, so as to clear his title to his holding, and won tho preliminary bant
at Nelson. Defendant appealed to
the Victoria cuurtsand again lost,but
has Imcii sneccssral in -tlie advancement of the case to the supremo court
at Ottawa; Several attempts had
been made in the interim to settle thc
suit, but no agreement as to the price
to be paid could lie arrived ftt. Nat
urally the company is elated at the
outcome ofthe litigation, and the result will probably be seen in a largely increased f'-rce at the Arlington.
CITY COUN-JII..
Short Session Held by the Dads Monday
Kvealnf.
City Council met an Monday evening at 7.30 and held a short session,
owing to the moving picture show in
the ball above. Aid. Nichol was tbe
only rbscntee.
Bills presented: D. Arnot, rope,
if 13.20; exoress, $1.66; Paul Hauck,
rope, $2.50; M. Cameron, cleaning up
nuisance ground, 135.80; J. Craig,
carpenter work, $10.
Ilia warship suggested setting
aside a small sum ef money monthly
for the clerk, to be used aa a petty
cash account, so saving a lot cf on-
necessary labor and being much more
convenient. The aldermen fell in
with the idea.
Bills ordered referred to-the finance
committee.
Aid. McCallum moved that $10 be
drawn in favor of tbe clerk, to be
used as a petty cash account, returns
te be made monthly. Seconded by
Aid. Worden and carried.
On tbe questien of introducing a
bylaw re appointment of eity clerk,
Aid. McCallum said be was not quite
certain as to whether the statute was
really necessary, as a resolution
might be sufficient. The other aldermen not being certain, either, the
matter was again laid over.
Aid. McCallum said they had had
difficulty in getting the council together to go out and select a cemetery
site and asked for another week to
report.   Granted.
Aid. Worden, for the health committee, reported that the nuisance
ground had been cleared up and put
in first class shape.
The collector's new roll and other
city printing was passed on and commended. Aid. Smith and Worden
moved its acceptance.   Carried.
A. Harlow inquired through the      _
clerk if it was necessary for him to I Dnutex
takeout a license to do plastering \ * /ft%%
Answered in the affirmative.
The pound bylaw came up for
more discussion and was passed over.
The mayor- suggested having all
the bylaws typewritten, so that the
originals might be filed away for
s.ife keeping. The cost would be 10
cents per folio of 100 words. Laid
over for total cost to be estimated.
Council adjourned.

Editor Dkiij.:
Sir,—I have been directing a little
attention to the Kamloops platform
of the new Provincial Progressive
Party and. although it contains many
meritorious nnd plausible theories
(as well as idealistic, but impracticable and impossible fads), I cannot
agrco with it, or Bee where there is
room or necessity for nnv new or
third party. Perhaps my old party
prejudices aro too strong and subject
to moderation, but my patriotic pre
dilections cannot stand the running
ofthe politics of our province or Dominion by alien grafters. I foel that
the fundamental principles of the Socialistic and Labor combination
spring from an alien graft, that it is
hostile to our British system of government, and inimical aad detrimental to the best interests and prosperity
of our common country. Yours verv
truly, Canadian.

value of one hundred dollars or more
in oxcess of the amount required to

Elmer J. Felt has won his- suit
against Percy Dickinson, judgment
having been given in his favor by
Mr. Justice Martin at Nelson on Saturday. The suit was brought to declare a partnership—and consequent
participation in the operations nf that
partnership—alleging to exist between the litigants in a mining business in this city, and which was denied by tbe defendant, who contend
cd plaintiff was merely employed by
him, The various mining interests
involved are those in which the noted
Warner Miller syndicate own, and
by tho judgment rendered plaintiff
secures an eighth interest in tne Skylark & Hanger and contiguous
claims, on the Lemon divide; also in
thc Slocan Chief group, at the head
of Ten Mile creek. The suit was
against Percy Dickinson, manager,
Warner Miller and associates, and
the judgment carries against all save
Wilson Smith.
Anether Property Starts Dp.
E. Hammolmcver, late of the
Emily Edith, Four Mile, spent Monday and Tuesday here. He went up
the creek and examined some property he owns near the Arlington
sawmill. Asa result of his examination, a contract has been let to B. M.
Walton to run 100 feet of tunneling,
with tho probability of an additional
contract when that is finished. Work
has commenced on the property.
May Balld a Concentrator.
Chas. E. Hope, Vancouver, head of
tho company owning the Emily Edith
group, on Four Mile, went up to that
property on Saturday. Had it not
been for the depretsion in the metal
markets,,the company would have
erected a concentrator this yoar, and
they may do so yet. Mr. Hope characterizes the Emily Edith as ono of
the best groups in the country, with
an abundance of ore in sight.

Once again the report is current
that the Chapleau, en the first north
fork of Lemon creek, Is to resume
operations, this time the names of
Taylor ft O'Shea, a firm of Nelson
lawyers, being connected with the
story.    According to tbe report work
is to be resumed at once, bnt se far
no move has been made.   The new
company, now known as the Kaslo-
Siocan Mining ft  Financial Corporation, has a capitalization of £500,000,
with £100,000 ln ths treasury for devolopment.    Besides the Chapleau,
work is to be commenced on the Joker group at Camp Mansfield, at the
head of Ten Mile creek.
To start work on the Chapleau,
there most needs be the payment of
the remaining debts on the property,
as well as repairing the wagon road,
which was practically washed out
last summer. Should the report turn
out te be correct, it will mean a big
| thing for the Lemcn creek country. a

"Three tinea, Jackanapes, hast thou
presumed to send stuff to my ward.
Here tbey are.'' He took from me the
last Sheet of doggerel verse and drew
tttm his pocket two more. "Here tbey
aie-one, two, tbroe-all addressed to
the matchless Molly. Wby, timo Impudent villain, wbat devil prompted
thee to call her matchless Molly?
Matchless to each as youl Take that,

Oh, captain, I confess! I deserve It all
Never again, captain. Oh, forgiveness,

CHAPTER IL
A UOBLE LORD.
T la three years later.
JVe are now In the year
1750. At 12 o'clock In
tbe morning the anteroom of tbo town bouse
of tbe right honorable
the Earl of Fyllngdale
waa tolerably filled
with a mixed company attending his
levee.
Soon after 12 o'clock the doors of the
private apartments were thrown open,
and his lordship appeared wearing tho
look of dignity and proud condescension combined which weU became tbo
star be wore and the ancient title
wblcb he bad Inherited. Hla age was
about 80, a time of life when tbere linger some remains of youth and the serious responsibilities aro yet with some
men hardly felt Hla face was cold
and proud and hard, the lips firmly set,
tbe eyee keen and even piercing, the
features regular, his stature tall, but
not ungainly; bla figure manly. It was
•remarkable among thoso wbo knew
him Intimately that tbere waa as yet
> sign of luxurious living on face and
He waa not as yet swelled out
with wine and punch; bis neck waa
etUI slender, bis face pale, witbout any
teUtaie marks of wine and debauchery.
So far aa appstarance goes, he might
pass If be cbooo for a person of tbe
nwet rigid and oven austere virtue.
Tbls, as I have aaid. was considered
remarkable by his friends, most of
whom were already stamped on face
aad feature end figure with tbo out-
wart and visible tokens of a profligate
Ufe, for. to confess tbe truth at tbe
very beginning and not to attempt con*
eeelment or to suffer a false belief as
regards tbls nobleman, be waa notblng
better than a cold blooded, pitiless, selfish libertine, a rake and a vr'uptunry,
one who knew end obeyec no laws
save the laws of (so called) honor.
"These laws allow a man to waste bis
fortune at tbe taming table, to ruin
confiding girls, to spend his time wltb
rake companions In drink and riot
anddebeucbery of all kinds. He most
however, pay hla gambllug debts; be
most not cheat at cards' bo must be
polite In speech; he must bo ready to
fight whenever the occasion calls for
his sword and the quarrel set-ins of sufficient Importance, l-ojrd Fyllngdale,
however, was not among Ihose who
found hla chief pleasure scouring tbe
streets and In mad rlcL You ahull
learn in due course wbat forma of
pleasure chiefly attracted blm.
I bave said tbat his face was proud.
There wea not I believe, anv man liv
ing In tbe wbole world wbo could compare wltb Lord Kyllugdale for pride.
An overwhelming pride sat upon his
brow, waa proclaimed by his eyes and
waa betrayed by bis carriage. With
such pride did Lucifer look round upon
bis companions, fallen as tbey were
and In the depths of hopeless ruin.
He was dressed In a manner becoming to hla rank. Need we dwell upon
his coat of purple velvet hla embroidered waistcoat his white silk stockings, his lace of ruffles and cravat bla
gold buckles and hla gold clocks, his
laced bat carried under his arm. hla
Jeweled sword bllt and the rings upon
his fingers? You would think by bis
dress that bis wealtb waa equal to bis
pride, and by his reception of the suitors that bla power waa equal to both
pride and wealth together.
Tho levee began. One after tbe other
stepped np to him. spoke a few words,
received a few words In reply and retired, each apparently well pleased,
for promises cost nothing.  To tbe poet
wbo asked for a subscription and proffered a dedication my lord promised
tbe former, accepted tbe latter and
added a few words of praise and good
wishes. But the subscription was never paid, and the dedication was after
wanl altered so far aa the superscrlp
•ism to another noble patron.  To tbe
clergyman who asked for a country
living then vacant my lord promised
the most kindly consideration and bade
him write his request and send It him
by letter for better assurance of remembrance. To the officer he promised
his company as only due to gallantry
and military skill. Vo the place hunter
he promised a post far beyond the
dreams and the hopes of tbe suppliant
Nothing more came of lt to either.
The company grew thin. One after
the other tbe suitors withdrew to feed
on promises. It Is Uke opening your
moutb to drink tho wind. But 'twas
all they got
Wben tbey were gone, Lord Fyllngdale looked round the room. In the
window stood, dangling a cane from
hla wrist a gentleman dressed In tbe
highest and tbe latest fashion.
Yet when one looked more closely tt
was seen that thla gallant exterior arrayed an ancient gentleman whose
years were proclaimed by the sharpening of his features, the wrinkles of his
feet, the crow's feet round his eyes
and hie bending shoulders, wblcb he
continually endeavored io set square
and upright Hat in one band and
snuffbox In the other, be ambled toward hla lordship on tiptoe, wblcb happened Just tben to be tbe fashionable
gait
"Thy servant Sir Harry." My lord
offered bim bla hand with condescension. "It warms my heart to see thee.
Therefore I sent a letter. Briefly, Sir
Harry, wouldst do me a service?"
"I am always at your lordship's commands. This, I hope, I bave proved."
"Then, Sir Harry, this is the case.
It la probable that for certain private
reasons I may hive to pay a visit to a
country town, a tow n of tarpaulins and
traders, not a town of fashion." Sir
Harry shuddered. "Patience, my
friend. I know not how long I ahall
endure tbe barbaric company. But I
most go. Tbere are reasons —let me
whisper, reasons of state, Important
secrets—which call me there." Sir Harry smiled and looked incredulous. "I
want on the spot a friend"—Sir Harry
smiled again, aa one who began to understand—"a friend wbo would appear to be a stranger. Would you,
therefore, play the part of such a
friend?"
"I will do whatever your lordship
commands. Yet to leave town at this
season"*—It waa then the month of
April —"the assembly, the park, the
card table, the society of tbe ladles— It
Is possible tbat the Lady Annstosla
may go tbere. Sbe will, as usual, keep
the bank If she does go."
The old beau's face cleared, whether
In anticipation of Lady Anastasla'a society or her card table I know not
"My character, Sir Harry, will be In
your hands. I leave It there confidently. For reasons—reasons of state—It
should be a character of—
"I understand. Your lordship Is a
model of all tbe virtues"—
"So we understand. My secretary
will convene with thee further on the
point of expenditure."
Sir Harry i -tired, bowing and twisting his body sometnlng like an ape.

"Your lordship's most obedient," bo
said, wltb scant courtesy. "I come in
obedience to your letter of command."
"Colonel, you wlU hold yourself In

you please to Sir Harry Malyus or to
any oue else whom my secretary will
point Out to you. Perhaps you may

me. We are strangers, remember, and
I am no gambler, though I sometimes
take a card."   And he, too, retired.
There remained one suitor. He wss a
clergyman dressed In a fine silk cassock with bands of the whitest and a
noble wig of the order ecclesiastic. I
doubt If the archbishop himself bad a
finer.
"Good, my lord." he aaid. "I am. as
usual a suppliant The rectory of St
sLeonard le Size, Jewry, ln the Citv. Is
now vacant With my small benefices
In the country It would suit me hugely.
A word from your lordship to tho lord
mayor—the rectory Is In tbe gift of the
corporation—wonld, I am aure, aufflce."
"You are living, as usual, I suppose,
at great expense."
"At small expense considering my
abilities, but still at greater expense
tban my slender Income will allow.
Am I not your lordship's domestic
chaplain? Must I not keep np the dignity due to tbe position?"
"Yonr dignity Is costly. I must get a
bishopric or a deanery for yon. Meantime I have a email service to ask of
yon."*
"Small? My lord, let lt be great; It
cannot be too great"
"It la that you go Into the country

"Not to Bath or to Oxford V
"Not to either; to another place,
where they know not thy name or thy
fame. Very good. I thought I could
depend upon your loyalty. Aa for arrangements and time, yon will hear
from my secretary." So my lord turned
on bis heel, and his chaplain wae dismissed.
When the levee was finished and
everybody gone, Lord Fyllngdale sank
Into a chair, 1 know not the nature of
his thoughts save tbat tbey were not
pleasant for hla face grew darker every moment Finally he sprang to hla
feet and rang tbe bell. "TeU Mr. Semple tbat I would speak with him," he
ordered.
Mr. Semple, the same Samuel whom

At thla time he also called himself secretary to his lordship

"Well, sir?"
"Namely, that the Fyllngdale estates
are gone so far as your lordship's life ts

HORRIBLE PAINS
FRHNCH   GENTLEMAN'S   SUFFERINGS   AKE BEYOND DESCRIPTION.
Many Doctors Treated him, but without Success—Dodd's Kidney l'ills
Cured Him and now Life is a pleasure to Ilim-He Tells tho Story.
St. Urbain, Que., April 21- (Special.)—Fearful indeed has been the experience of Narcisse Darrctte, of this
place. For fifteen long and wearisome years he hus suffered witb an
acute malady of the kidneys and
back which has caused him the most
agonizing pains.
He consulted physician after physician and followed their treatment
patiently and carefully. Some of
them afforded him a little temporary
relief (which was in itself u great
blessing), but the pain always came
back to torture him even worse than
before.
Rheumatism added its terrors to
his already great burden of misery
and his life was a succession ot
spasms of the most violent pains it
has ever been the lot of mortal man
to endure.
The story as told by Mons. llai-
rette himself is in part as follows :
''For more than fifteen years I suf-
lered with a severe Malady of the
back and Kidneys which caused me
horrible pains in the back.
"I tried many doctors, but the relief they gave me was only temporary and the Malady always returned.
My suffering was so great at times
that it was almost beyond endurance.
"I had rheumatism as well as the
pains in the back, and between them
I was sorely tried. I would rather
die than suffer again the way I did,
but now life Is very pleasant to me
and I am anxious to live.
"You ask me how I was cured ?
"Well, after trying in vain doctor's
treatments and almost everything,
else, I began to use what has been
to me the greatest medicine in all
the world, Dodd's Kidnoy Pills, and
very soon the pains all left me.
They acted almost, like maple. I am
now in perfect health and work
every day."
Thc extreme delight we take in
talking of ourselves should wurn us
that lt is not shared by thoso who
listen.

";::'   •"-*-■•»-■'   uu    unusually   dilllcult
thing    for   traders to make up their
minds   us   the   chances   of the present   situation    j,, the wheat trade.
J^ttst week trade showed itself actlviand markets buoyant, but in the interval    between Friday and Monday
thero    was    an   increase of showers
over Kansas uns adjoining territory,
and on Monday the speculative markets in the States felt the effects of
tins    strongly,   and a drop of lc to
IVic    took   place.   A more confident
feeling   resulted on Tuesday, but on
Wednesday    another bad break took
place,    resulting    in a drop of ic to
l*/4c.     Since    then   some renewal of
confidence is evident, but in tho week
prieeH   show    a declino of lc to iy*c,
as    compared with closing prices on
Friday of last week.   The rains and
more favorable weather over a large
aroa    of    the   wintor   wheat in tho
Stntes    have    imparted u somewhnt
moro   encouruging   feeling as to the
prospects    for    tho   crops over such
area, but wo think the improvement
amounts   rather    to thc suving of a
portion    of what wus promising to
be almost a lost crop had the adverse
weather  been continued rather  than
the    establishing    of    uny thing that
could   now   turn    out a fuirly good
yield.   In fact, wo are of the opinion
that    the    ruins    in Kansas and tin*
southwest    huvo   come    ut    a time
when   tho   crop is too fur advanced
towards    harvest    to   bo benuutted
materially by it.  and thut the yield
in the State of Kansas ut least will
not amount' to over 50 per cent, of
lust years' yield.

lt is impossible that a medicine can
be so widely known and used us uru
Dr, Williums' Pink Pills without
striking results frequently becoming
known and the merits of this great
remedy for tbe common ailments of
man uud womankind being published.
Mis. Thos. Kettle, of Petrolea, Ont.,
is a case in point. Mrs. Kettle is an
ol* resident of this district and Is
well known. Chatting with a reporter of the Topic the other day
the conversation drifted on the subject of medicines, when Mrs. Mettle
spoke in the highest praise of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, which, sho
said, had cured hor of h i'wig illness,
Our reporter, being naturally interested, made further enquiries, when
Mrs. Kettle gave him the following
particulars : "I am the mother of
twelve children and in spile ol thu
constant strain and worry the raising of so largo a family entailed upon mo, in addition to my housework,
1 was for many years blessed with
splendid health. However, after the
birtli, of my last child my utiength
seemed to fail me and 1 felt thut my
health was gradually going. 1 consulted a doctor and continued under
his treatment for some months, but
the only result that I could see wus
that 1 grew gradually worse. I could
not name any particular ailment thut
I suffered from, but I was "all run
down." My appetite failed mo, my
strength si>emed all gone and 1 be-
cume pale and listless, scarcely able
to drag myself around, and much of
the time in bed. I became alarmed
at my long continued Ill-health, and
as doctor's medicine had done me no
good I determined to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I purchased a box
and thought it did me somo good, so
I got six boxes more, and beforo 1
had finished taking the second I felt
a lot better, und by tho time 1 had
finished the seven boxes I had perfectly regained my health, had gained weight and felt better than I had
for some years. 1 consider the pills
a splendid medicine-, a real godsend
to weak and ailing women, and have
frequently recommended them to my
friends and used them with my children, always with good results."
Judging from Mrs. Kettle's healthy
appearance to-day none would imagine she had ever known what u duy's
illness meant.
Dr. Williams' Fink Pills are a positive cure for all diseases arising
from impoverished blood, or a weak
or shattered condition of the nervous system, such as epilepsy, St.
Vitus' dance, paralysis, rheumatism,
sciatica, heart, troubles, anaemia,
etc. These pills are alss} a cure for
the ailments that make the livs*s of
so many women a constant misery.

To Jndic* aa Opal.
An expert on opal mining bus recently explained bow the opal is Judged aa
te quality and dsslrablllty. First, he
says, color Is of the greatest Importance. Red fire, or red In combination
wltb yellow, blue and green, are tbe
best. Blue by Itself is quite valueless,
sml the green opal Is not of great value
unless the calor Is very vivid and the
pattern very good. Tho color must be
true- that is to say, lt must not run In
i streaks or patches, alternating with a
| colorless or Inferior quality.
I'lUtern Is described as being an lm-
! portnnt factor, tbe several" vnrletles be-
| known as "pin fire" when the grain Is
I very small, "harlequin" wben tbe color
Is all In small squares, the more regular the better, and the "flnsb fire" or
"Hash opal" when the color shows ns a
single ilnah or in very large pattern.
Harlequin Is tho most common aud Is
also popularly considered the most
beautiful. When the squares of color
are regular and show ns distinct, mluute checks of red, yellow, blue nnd
green, It is considered magnificent.
