City Council met in regular session
on Monday evening". Present: Mayor
York, Aid. Worden, Smith and Brad*
shaw. A big crowd of citizens was
also in attendance.
McCallum & Co. wrote, quoting a
price o*' $11.50 per thousand for
plank for sidewalks.
Deputy Finance Minister Smith
wrote, refusing permission to the city
to collect unpaid taxes. The mayor
stated he was sorry that the council
had written on the subject. He deplored the lack of harmony at the
Council, as matters of that nature
should have been lirst talked over
among the members privately. Collector Chipman had advised hi in on
the subject, on the lines ofthe minister's letter lie did not like to see
the city called down. Aid. Bradshaw dissent, d and thought the letter by the council had done good.
There were many taxes that would
not be paid and the council aimed to
get them. There was no harm done
Geo. Kydd, manager of tlie Royal
Bank at Nelson, asked bs" letter to
have the corporate ro 1 impressed on
communications sent him relative to
civic account.
Letters ordered fyled.
McCallum & Co. drew attention to
an unpaid account, which had been
overlooked by the council. The bill
was for money paid to protect the
Springer bridge last spring. Clerk
instructed to ask tor a new bill.
Finance Committee recommended
exchange of -12 buckets purchased fjr
lire hall for regular fire bucket*"., a-*
being more serviceable; also that the
balance of the supplies be ucwptci
and paid for tit once. After souie
condemnatory remarks by tiie mayor
aliout the buckets, and a few cxpla
nations from tlie aldermen, Aid.
Worden and Smith moved that the
12 buckets be taken back by Wood
cock st Oo. and replaced by more
suitable ones. It- was also added that
ihe remainder of the bill be paid,
provided tho {[company accept cou.i
cil's offer.   Carried.
Finance c>.muuitcc reported on
sidewalks as follows: "From Baty's
hotel to general hospital ,OOSt per foot
for eight-foot plank walk, laid on •">***
tj inch stringers, 45 cents per lineal
foot. Street crossings, plank laid
lengthwise and about 4 feet Wide, 25
cents per lineal loot. Probable total
cost $275, With reference to grade,
we lind that lhe general opinion is
that the present, grade of street
should be followed,"
Mayor strongly recommended the
building of the walk. The council
had so far done nothing In the way
of public improvements and something ought to be done. The lin-
ances ofthe city would stand it. He
would also like to 9ec a walk put in
to the city ball, as well as a new six-
foot walk fronting thc Oddfellows'
hall to Arthur street from Main
street. These Improvements ho would
recommend having attended to all at
one time,
Aid. Bradshaw would rather see
tho walk laid on the north Bide of
Delaney avenue, so that it might bo
extended later on, while the one on
thc south side could bo repaired.
The diecu sion simmered down to
the following resolution by Aid.
Bradshaw and Smith: "That a com
niittee be appointed to look alter and
arrange for the building of an eight-
foot sidewalk to the hospital; new
sidewalk 00 west side of Main street
(rom the tinshop to the city hall; new
six-foot sidewalk on south side of
Delaney avenue from Main street to
Arthur street."   Carried.
The mayor appointed Aid. Smith,
Bradshaw and Worden to the com*
mittee, with full power to purchase
material and go ahead with the
work. The work would be dono by
day labor, and tho chief of police
could help in thc construction. The
mayor favored day's labor I'or all
city work.
A bill for P.O box rent was recommended for payment. Ordered
paid on motion.
McCallum & Co's letter re lumber
was referred to tho sidewalk committee.

Mayor York brought forward question of appointing fire wardens. The
economy in tho police department
was to be looked at from tho point of
efficiency, and tho matter was any
way receiving thc attention of the
Aid. Bradshaw contended the city
was paying too much for the service*,
and cheaper arrangements might be
A lengthy talk ensued, winding up
by Aid. Bradshaw moving that the
council recommend the police com
missioners abolish the position of
chief of police and the city make
some other arrangement for policing
the city.
There being no seconder the motion was lost, but Aid. Bradshaw
went down on the book as being opposed to the expenditure of §75 per
month for policing the city. He
would bring the matter up at the
next meeting of the council, when all
the aldermen were present.
Coming back to the subject of fire
wardens, the clerk was instructed to
inspect tlie city under the provisions
ofthe fire limit bylaw, without any
additional salary'
On motion of Aid. Smith and Worden, Friday, November 2d, was set
apart as the date for holding the first
municipal court of revision, the necessary notice being authorized to be
sent to" the B C. Gazette.
The Drill was given an order to
print 500 assessment notices, on motion of Aid, Smith and Bradshaw.
A motion was next passed ordering the clerk's salary to be paid.
Mayor York then ga >"e a short resume of his trip tolhecOHBt to meet
the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall,

the Enterprise mine have hitherto
been restricted as far as possible
pending the erection of a concentrating mill, which the engineers reported was necessary in order to produce
tho best results and save the loss
which would otherwise be entailed
by hand sorting the ore. It was impracticable to instal this plant during
the winter months, but its erection
has been pushed forward during this
summer season,and it is expected the
mill will be in running order in the
next few weeks. During the interyal
considerable development work has
been carried out in order that the
mill may be kept continuously work

Big UN  Chut.*  Found on tsics  ~fonteri*y
An Important strike was made during the week at the head of Springer
creek, giving promise of adding another rich mine to the many which
go to make that portion of the camp
famous. The discovery was made on
the Monterey group, situated to the
east of tiie Hampton. The group
consists of the Monterey, Oregon and
Bancroft claims and is owned by N.
F. McNaught, R, Milloy and Leo
Doiron. The claims are but ye<*.r-old
locations and the discovery is the outcome of the lirst assessment.
The discovery was made in an
open cut and consists of a six foot
ledge, carrying two pronounced pay*
streaks, one four inches wide and the
other eight. Ore is showing freely
in each and may be characterized as
ni sulphide, with the presence of copper strongly marked. The smaller
streak assays from 410 to 500 oz si I
ver and the larger 8J oZ Au assay
from the ledge matter went CO oz
silver. Subsequent cuts were run
along the surface, catching the vein
and exposing an ore chute 300 feet
long. Croppings of the vein have
lies'ii traced over the three claims, tlie
principal exposure of ore being on
the north side of Springer creek. The
vein is striking over tlie summit Into
the Riverside group, on the Ten Mile
slope, owned by R. I. Kirkwood.
The approach of winter has caused
the work to cease for this year, but
in the spring the owners will put up
cabins and commence development
ot the property, being assured of a
dividend payer from the grass roots.

Washington, Oct. 6. — The charm
of an exalted religion ia by Ur. Talmage in this discourse illustrated
and commended; text. Job xxviii,
17, "The crystal cannot equal it."
Many of the precious stones of the
Bible havo come to prompt recognition. But for the present I tuke
up the less valuable crystal. Job,
in my text, compares saving wisdom with a specimen of topaz. An
infidel chemist or mineralogist
would pronounce the latter worth
more than tho former, but Job
makes an intelligent comparison,
looks at religion and then looks at
the crystal and pronounces the former as of far superior value to tho
latter, exclaiming, in the words of
my text, "The crystal cannot equal
Now, Jt is not a port of my ser-
mouic design to depreciate the crystal, whether it be found in Cornish
mine or Harz mountain or Mammoth
cave or tinkling among the pendants of the chandeliers of a palace.
The crystal Is the star of the mountain; it is the queen of the cave;
it is the eardrop of the hills; it
finds its heaven in the diamond.
Among all the pages of natural history there is no page more interesting to me than the page of crystal-
lographic. But I want to show you
that Job was right when, taking religion in ono hand and the crystal
in the other, ho declared that the
former is of fax more value and
beauty than the latter, recommending it to all the people and to all
the ages, declaring "The crystal
cannot equal it."
In the first place, I remark that
religion is superior to the crystal in
exactness. That shapeless mass of
crystal against which you accidentally dashed your foot ia laid out
with more exactness than any earthly city. There are six styles of crystallization and all of them divinely ordained. Every crystal baa
mathematical precision. God's geometry reaches through it, and it ia a
square, or it is a rectangle, or it is
a rhomboid, or in some way it haa
a mathematical figure. Now, religion beats that in the simple fact
that spiritual accuracy ia more
beautiful than material accuracy.
Cod's attributes are exact, God's
law exact, God's decrees exact,
God's management of the world exact. Never counting wrong though
he counts the grass blades and the
stars and the sands and the cycles.
Hia providences never dealing with
us perpendicularly when those providences ought to be oblique, nor laterally when they ought to be vertical. Everything in our life arranged without any possibility of mistake. Each lifo a six-headed prism.
Born at tha right time; dying at the
right time. There .are no "happen
bo's" in our theology. If I thought
this wax a slipshod universe, I
would be in despair. God is not an
anarchist. Law, order, symmetry,
precision, a perfect square, a perfect
rectangle, a perfect rhomboid, a perfect circle. The edge of God's robe
of government never frays out. There
are no loose screws in the world's
machinery. It did not Just happen
that Napoleon was attacked with indigestion at Borodino so that he became incompetent for the day. It
did not Just happen that John
Thomas, the missionary, on a heathen island, wuiting for an outfit
and orders for another missionary
tour, received that outfit and those
orders in a box that floated ashore,
while the ship and tho crew that
carried the box wore never heard of.
I believe in a particular provldeuco.
I believe God's geometry may be
seen in all our life more beautifully
than ln crystallography. Job waa
right.     "The   crystal   cannot equal
Again I remark that religion is superior to the crystal in transparency. We know not when or by
whom glass was first discovered.
Beads of it have been found in the
tomb of Alexander Severus. Vases
of it are brought up from tbo ruins
of Herculaneum. There wero female
adornments made out of lt 3,000
yoara ago — those adornments found
now attached to the mummies of
Egypt. A great many commentator* believe that my text means
glass. What would wo do without
the crystal? The crystal in tbo window to keep out tho storm and let
ta the day; tha crystal over the
watch, defendlag its delicate machinery, yet allowing ua to see the
hour; the crystal of the telescope,
by which tha astronomer brings distant worlds ao near he can inspect
them. Oh, the triumph of the crystals in the celebrated windows of
Rouen and Salisbury I But thcro is
nothing ao transparent in a crystal
aa In our holy religion. It is a
transparent religion. You can put
It to your eye and you see man —
hia sin, his soul, his destiny. You
look at God and you ace something
of the grandeur of hia character. It
ia a transparent religion. Infidels
tell ua it la opaque. Do you know
why they tell ua it ia opaquo? It ia
becuuso they era blind. "The natural man recelveth not tlie things
of God because they are spiritually
discerned." Tbere la no trouble
with the crystal. The trouble Is
with the eyea which try to look
through it. We pray for vision.
Lord, that our eyes may be openodl
Wben tho eyo salvo cures our blindness, then we find that religion ia
It Ih a transparent Blblo. All tha
un.uu tains of the Bible coma out —
Sinai, the mountain of the law; X'is-
giiii, tho mountain of prospect; Olivet, the mountain of instruction;
Calvary, the mountain of sacrifice.
All the rivers of the Biblo come out
—Hidckel, or the river of paradisaical beauty; Jordan, or the river of
holy chrism; Chorith, or the river of
prophetic supply; Nile, or the liver
of palaces, and the pure river of life
from under the throne, clear as crystal. While reading this Bible, after our eyes have been touched by
grace, we find it all transparent, and
the earth rocks, now with crucifixion
agony and now with judgment terror, and Christ appears in some of
his 256 titles, as far as 1 can count
them—the Bread, the Rock, the tbe
Captain, the Commander, the Conqueror, the Star, and on and beyond
any capacity of mine to rehearse.
Transparent religion)
The providence that Roomed dark
before becomes pellucid. Now you
find God is not trying to put you
down. Now you understand why
you lost that child and why you lost
your property. It was to prepare
you for eternal treasures. And why
sickness came, it being thc precursor of immortal juvenescence. And
now you understand why they lied
about you and tried to drive you
hither and thither. It was to put
you in the glorious company of such
men as Ignatius, who, when he went
out to be destroyed by the lions,
said, "I am the wheat, and the teeth
of the wild beasts must first grind
me before I con become pure broad
for Jesus Christ." Or the company
of such men as "that ancient Christian martyr" who, when standing in
the midst of the amphitheatre waiting for the lions to come out of
their cave and destroy him and tho
people ih the galleries jeering und
ahouting, "The lions!" replied,
"Let them come oni" and then,
stooping down toward the cave
where the wild beasts were roaring
to get out, again cried, "Let them
come oni" Ah, yes, it is persecution to put you in glorious crm-
pany, and while there are many
things that you will have to postpone to the future world for explanation I tell you that it is the whole
tendency of your religion to unravel
and explain and interpret and illumine and irradiate. Job was
right. It is a glorious transparency. "The crystal cannot equal
People talk too much about their
cross and not enough about their
crowns. Do you know that the Bible
mentions a cross but seventeen
times, while it mentions a crown
eighty times? Ask that old man what
he thinks of religion. He has been a
cioso observer. He has been cultivating an aesthetic taste. He haa seen
the sunrises of half a century. He
has been on early riser. He has been
an admirer of cameos and corals and
all kinds of beautiful things. Ask
him what he thinks of religion, and
he will tell you: "It is the most
beautiful thing I ever saw. The crystal cannot equal it."
Beautiful in its symmetry. When it
presents God's character, it does not
present him as having love like a
great pertuberancc on one side of hla
nature, but makes that love in harmony with his justice — a love that
will accept all those who come to
him, and a justice that will by no
means clear the guilty. Beautiful religion in the sentiment it implants!
Beautiful religion in the hope thnt
it kindles! Beautiful religion in thu
fact that it proposes to garland and
enthrone and emparudise an immortal spirit. Solomon says it is a lily.
Paul says it is a crown. The Apocalypse says it is a fountain kissed by
the sun. Ezekiel says It is a foliaged
cedar. Christ says it is a bridegroom
come to fetch homo a bride. While
Job in the text takes up a whole
voso of precious stones — the topaz
and the sapphire and the chrysopras-
us — he holds out of this beautiful
vuso just one crystal and holds it
up until it gl'ams in the warm light
of the eastern sky, and he exclaims,
"Tlio crystal cannot equal it."
Oh, it is not a stale religion; it is
not a stupid religion; it is not a
toothless hag, as some seem to have
represented it; it is not a Meg Mer-
rilics with shriveled arm come lo
scare the world; it ia the fairest
daughter of God, heiress of all his
Wealth; her check the morning sky,
her voice the music of the aouth
wind, her step the dance of the sea.
Come and woo her. Thc Spirit and
the Bride say come, and whosoever
will, let him come. Do you agree with
Solomon and say it is a lily? Then
pluck it and wear It over your heart.
Do you agree with Paul and aay lt
is a crown? Then lot this hour be
your coronation. Do you agree with
the Apocalypse and say it la a
springing fountain? Then come and
slake the thirst of your soul. Do
you believe with Ezckiel and aay H
ia a foliaged cedar? Then come under
its shadow. Do you believe with
Christ and aay it ia a bridegroom
come to fetch home a brido? Then
strike hands with your Lord and
King while I pronounce you everlastingly one. Or if you think with
Job that it is a jewel, then put it on
your hand like a ring, on your neck
like a bead, on your forehead like a
star, while looking into the mirror
of Cod's word you acknowledge,
"The crystal cannot equal It."
Again, religion is superior to the
crystal in its transformations. Tho
diamond is only a crystallization.
Carbonite of lime rises until it becomes calclto or aragonlto. Red oxide of copper crystallizes into cubes
and octahedrons. Those crystals
which adorn our persons and our
homes and our museums hava only
been resurrected from forma that
were far from lustrous. Scientist* for
ages havo been examining these wonderful transformations. But I toll
you in the gospel of tho Son of God
there is a more wonderful transformation. Over souls by reason of Hin
black aa coal and hard as iron God,
by his comforting grnco, stoops end
says. "They shall bo mine in the
day when I make up my Jewola."
"What!" say you. "Will God wear
Jewelry?" If he wanted it, ho could
mnke the stars of the heaven bis
belt and have the evening cloud for
the sandals of his feet, but he docs
not want that adornment.     Ua will
hot have thnt jewelry. When God
wants jewelry, he comes down and
digs it out of the depths and darkness of sir. Those souls ure all crystallizations of mercy. He puts them
on, and he wears them in the presence of the whole universe. He wears
them on the hand that was nailed,
over tho heart thnt was pierced, on
the temples that were stung. "They
shall be mine," saith the Lord, "in
the day when I make up ny jewels."
Wonderful transformation! Where
sin abounded grace shall much niore
abound. The carbon becomes tho solitaire. "The crystal cannot equul it."
Now, I have no liking for those
people who are always enlarging in
Christian meetings about their curly
dissipation. Do not go into the particulars, my brothers. Simply say
you were sick, but make no display
of your ulcers. The chief stock in
trudo of some ministers und Christian workers seems to be their early
crimes and dissipations. Tho number of pockets you picked and tbe
number of chickens you stole raake
very poor prayer meeting rhetoric.
Besides that, it discourages other
Christian people who never got drunk
or stole anything. But it is pleasant
to know that those who wero farthest down have been brought highest up. Out of, infernal serfdom into
eternal liberty. Out of darkness into
light. From coal to the solitaire.
"The crystal cannot equal it."
But. my friends, tho chief transforming power of the gospel will not
bo seen in this world, and not until
heaven breaks upon the soul. When
that light falls upon the soul, then
you will see the crystals. What a
magnificent setting for theso jewels
of eternity I sometimes hear people
representing heaven in a way that
Is far from attractive to me. It
seems almost a vulgar heaven as
they represent it, with great blotches
of color and bands of music making
a deafening racket. John represents
heaven as exquisitely beautiful. Three
crystals! In one plnco ho says, "Her
light was like a pr. -us stone, clear
as crystal." In another place he
says, "1 saw a pure river from ui.der
the throne, clear as crystal." In en-
other placo he says, "Before th*
throne there was a sea of gloss clear
as crystal." Three crystals! John
says crystal atmosphere. That means
health. Balm of eternal June. What
weather after tlie world's east wind!
No rack of storm clouds. One breath
of that air will euro the worst tubercle. Crystal light on all the leaves.
Crystal light shimmering on the topaz of the temples. Crystal light
tossing in the plumes of the equestrians ot heaven on white horses. But
"the crystal cannot equal it." John
says crystal river. That means joy.
Deep and ever rolling. Not one drop
of the Potomac or the Hudson or
the Rhine to soil it. Not one tear of
human sorrow to embitter it. Crystal, the rain out of which it was
made. Crystal, the bed over which
it shall roll and ripple. Crystal, its
infinite surface. But "the crystal cannot oquol it." John says crystal sea.
That means multitudinously vast.
Vast in rapture. Rapture vast as the
sea. deep as the sea, ever changing
as the sea. Billows of light. Billows
of beauty, blue with skies, that were
never clouded and green wilh depths
that were never fathomed. Arctics
and Antarctics and Mediterraneans
and Atlantics nnd Pacific-* in crystal-
lino magnificence. Three crystals!
Crystal light falling on a crystal
river. Crystal river rolling into a
crystal sea. But "the crystal cannot
equal it."
"Oh," says some one, putting his
hand over his eyes, "can it be that
I who have been in so much sin and
trouble will ever come to those crystals?" Yes, It may be — it will be.
Heaven wu must have, whatever we
have or have not, and wo- come here
to get it. "How much must I pay
for it?" you say. You will pay for it
just as much as the coal pays to become the diamond. In other words,
nothing. The same Almighty power
thnt makes the crystal in the mountain will change your heart which is
harder than stone, for the promise is,
"I will take away your stony heart,
and I will givo you a heart of flesh."
"Oh," says somo one, "it is Just
the doctrine I want. God is to do
everything, and I nm to do nothing."
My brother, it ia not the doctrine
you want. The coal makes no resistance. It hears tho resurrection voice
in thc mountain and it comes to
crystallization; but your heart resists. The trouble with you, my
brother, is the coal wants to stay
I do not ask you to throw open
the door and let Christ in. I only ask
that you stop bolting and barring it.
My friends, we will havo to get rid
of our sins. I will have to got rid of
my sins, and you will have to gat
rid of your sins. What will we do
with our sins among the three crystals? Thc crystal atmosphere would
display our pollution. Tho crystal
river would be befouled with our
touch. Transformation must tak*
place now or no transformation at
all. Give sin fuli chance in your
heart and tho transformation will be
downward instead of upward. Instead of crystal it will be a cinder.
In tho days of Carthage a Christian girl was condemned to dio for
her faith, and a boat was bedaubed
with tar and pitch and filled with
combustibles and set on fire, and th*
Christian girl was placed ln tho boat,
nnd tho wind was offshore, and the
boat floated away with its precious
treasure. No ono can doubt that boat
landod at tho shore of heaven. Sin
wants to put you In a fiery boat and
shove you off In nn opposite direction— off from peace, off from God,
off from heaven, everlastingly off,
and the port toward which you
would sail would be a port of darkness, and th* guns that would greet
you would be tho guns of despair,
and tho flags that would wavo at
your arrival would be tho black flags
of death. Oh, my brother, you must
either kill sin or sin will kill you!
It Is no exaggeration when I sny
that any man or woman thut wants
to bo saved may be saved. Tremendous choice! A thousand people uro
choosing this moment between salvation and destruction, botweon light
und darkness, between charred ruin
aud glorious crystallization.

An atrabilious contributor to the
London Academy announces ex
cathedra that the love story must
go. lt is all rubbish, he thinks.
Love, so fur as his observation extends, has been vastly overrated as
a moving force in the world, which
is really much more interested in
money-making, philosophy, sociology, and all that. Novelists persist in wiirking what the late Mr.
AlcVicker used to call •'heart interest" into their plots, but they do
it because tbat is the tradition of
tbo art and they think tho reading
public demands it.
But this, according to the Academy's crusty contributor, is simply a superstition. The public read
love stories because it cannot get
anything else, aiid the moment some
author realizes this fact nnd turns
out a talo about how John Jones
defeated the opposition to his candidacy for Parliament or how Hull
houso engineered the passage of an
ordinance every otber author will
follow suit and love will get his
•granting papers from the circulating
We do not know who the Academy's contributor is, says Winnipeg Town Topii's, but lt is morally
certain that he is as ugly as Schopenhauer or as old as Methuselah. No
mun in his vigor und not so hideous
that women run affrighted when he
shows his face could take a view so
warped  and false.
Whut other force is ther* in lifo
but love? The desire for wealth?
What mun would toil on after ac-
cui iilating a competence except that
a woman may penetrate the splendid
shops the money of loving men supports and carry off materials for her
adornment—that she may have a
magnificent establishment, rinriiiges,
horses, servants, and the rest?
If it were not for love most men
who now grace civilization would
prefer to cook their own meals in a
Issg cabin in the woods and ills' vast
bubble of what we call the world of
fashion would instantly collapse.
And ambition? What i'.<u')ili**:i is
not grounded in .i d*M*ro 'ss please
some woman? Philosophy? Philosophy was invented to enable mankind to support the misery engendered by unsuccessful love. Thc search
for happiness? There ia no happiness  without  lovo.
Why, as a matter of fact, love is
the one force that holds tho universe in place, the lav/ of gravitation
applied to human souls. Every man
jack of us whose faculties are not
decnyed or addled lives, moves and
strives for tbe sake ot a woman.
Love, in one form or another, is the
underlying cautic of most of the
crimes as well as of all tho noble
activities of man. It has always
been so, it will always be so; und in
consequence the novelists und poets,
who can find uo other subject in
which men and women alike are universally interested, will continue to
write love stories as long ns literature lasts.

A good many ducks wounded by
other gunners have fallen to my lot,
unsl that is no reflection oiv cither
my skill or .my honesty. It is no
reflection on my honesty, because the
ducks would probably never have
been bagged by the men who wounded them, and it's no reflection on
my skill because a wounded duck is
generally harder to kill than one
that Mn't. Suffering inuks's them
warier than efer. The woundesl
duck will swim wilh merely a bit of

of mine used to do their shooting in
the evening—It wns easier than gel-

somo one wounded that lived arpund

would dive and swim a quarter ot
a mile nndor water, and then only
show half an inch of bill for another

lteferring to the recent meeting in
Glasgow of agriculturists and others
interested in the removal ol restrictions on Canadian cattle trade Tho
Herald of thut city says:
Tho importance of thc meeting
held to devise steps for the removal
of the restrictions on the importation of Canadian cattle, muy be
measured by thc diversity of its
composition. Those who are promoting the movement are not farmers alone, or fleshers alono, or cattle
salesmen alone, or shipowners alone,
but all in combination, and they
are supported by representatives of
tho Local Authority, of tho Harbor
Authority, and of the general public.
Apart from his interest in the subject as a consumer of beef overy citizen of (Jliisgow has an interest in
it as part proprietor of tho exten-
sivo sheds aad stores erected by tho
corporation for a trade which wus
killed by Act of Parliament. The
restrictions wero imposed in 1802 by
order of the Board of Agriculture
as a temporary precautionary expedient. It was stated, intensled and
expected that when all fear of the
importation of contagious pleuto
from Canada wns removed tho restrictions would be withdrawn, and
the importation of Canadian cattle
into tlio country—and not merely into tho slaughter-house — would be
free once more.
»So far, however, from being removed, the restrictions wero made
permanent by Act of Pnrliument in
1896, without the production of
any evidence that tho disease which
was supposed to bo guarded against
was prevalent in Canada. Into the
reasons urged for that legislation at
the time we need not now enter.
Certain it is that many who were
then in favor of the restrictions now
desire thai tney should  be removed.
Tho farmers are as anxious to
havo Canaslian stock for their herds
as the dealers are anxious to have
freo trade in cattle. Tlie point at
present is not whether tbe restrictions were justifiablo when they were
imposed, but whether there is any
good reason for continuing them.
As Lord Provost Chisholm defined
the question, it is—"Is there any
evidence to warrant the maintenance
of these most offensive restrictions?"
There appears to be none, but there
is abundant evidence to the csin-
trary. For instance, tlio Dominion
Minister of Agriculture positively
aJIirms that contagious plouro docs
not exist In Canada; and that even
if it did exist, it could not be exported, so thorough are thc regulations and precautions in force in
Canada. And it was stated by one
of the speakers, who doubtless can
substantiate bis statement, that in
800,000 Canadian cattle landed on
our shores not a single case of
pleuro has been  ds*tectcd.
If, then, the evislence shows no
cause for the retention s*f restrictions which con only be Justilicd us
precautionary, il is desirable in the
interests both of this country nnd
of Cunada to havo them removed.
But as they are established by Act
of Parliament an Act of Parliament
is needed to abolish them. That is
whero the trouble comes in. lt is
always difficult to get Parliament to
revoke its own deeds. V. .ml is
necessary most of all is to elicit a
strong expi-i*ssion  of  public opinion.
The conference was important in
this respect, und us it was thoroughly representative of all classes, tbe
resolutions passed by it cannot fail
to have weight with the Government
nn<l with Parliament. But its example should be followed vlgorDusly
by other communities in Scotland."
It must be demonstrated thut this
is no mere question between the Canadian breeders und the Scotch feeder, but a question sif real interest
and vast Importance to the whole
community. If Canaslian cattle unhealthy we should  have ns free  nnd
unrestricted importation of then as
we  have of Canadian  wheat.

These Symptoms Are
A Warning to You
That the blood is losing its richness and the very life itself is being sapped from brain and nerves. You feel weak

are nervous and irritable. Little things worry you. You
suffer with headache, neuralgia and nervous dyspepsia. You
grow melancholy and depressed at times, find your memory failing and feel  unable to concentrate your thoughts.
This is the train of symptoms which lead to nervous pros.

The Local Paper Publishes a Column
About His Case—Worst Form of
Rheumatism—Dodd's Kidney Pills
Have Proven a Blessing to Him.
Sundridge, Ont., Oct. 7.—(Special)
—Tho Echo of this placo has published a Bigned statement which cn-rs-
not fail to interest all who understand the full meaning of the word
Rheumatism from personal experience. A representative of that paper
interviewed Mr. William Doeg, a well
known farmer of Strong Township,
who was cured of Rheumatism by
Dodd's Kidney Pills this spring, and
lie gave out thc following statement
for publication :
"For four years I suffered excruciating torture, during which time I
was scarcely an hour freo from pain.
Tlio troublo commenced in my back,
whero it often remained stationary
for months, and so intense was the
pain that I could not He down or
take rest, hut had to sit night and
day in a chair. The pain would then
remove to other parts of my body,
and when in my knees, disabled me
from walking, confining me constantly to my room.
"I wan treated by severe? doctors
and also triod yzxevy medicines, without receiving any benefit. Almost in
despair I feared I would never again
experience the pleasure of being free
from pain.
"Early this spring my attention
was called to somo remarkable cures
of Rheumatism effected by iXidd's
Kidney Pills. I procured a b'jx, and
soon found they were doing me good,
so I kept on, until now I can say I
am a new man, entirely free trom
pain and have continued so evs*r since
being able to attend to my daily duties on tho farm and feel strong and
able to work. I verily believe this
great change was effected by Dodd's
Kidney Pills and I think it my duty
to make this statement pub!' for the
benefit of all alllicted as I was  '

"During our first year in Colorado,"
said the ex-ranchman's wife, "my daugh-
ti'r and myself were dcs-Dcrately lone-
■•"me, and for lhe girl's silke more than
for my own 1 urged my husbuud to try
his utmost and gat a piano brought there.
A Colorado ranch waa then much farther from nny point of civilization than
it is today, and for a long time the feat
seemed hopeless, but at last, after long
and tedious effort, an instrument found
its way to our wilderness.
"My daughter hml a fairly good musical education before we went to the
ranch, and after the arrival of the plnno
she spent all ber leisure time at it. One
evening, about two weeks after it came,
she had spent a couple of hours practicing some of Chopin's waltzes; then she
struck into the nocturnes. Chopin is my
favorite among the composers. While I
sat there listening intently, my elbow
resting on a table besisle me nnd my head
on my hand, I felt myself Impelled to go
to the window aud look out. I had heard
no sound, everything was as still as
death, but there was just a consciousness
thai something wns outside.
"I moved cautiously, peered out slowly
and drew back suddenly. A huge snake
was coiled up close under lhe window.
Its body was perfectly still, its bend
poised iu n listening attitude nnd swaying
slightly from side to side, as if in rhythmic movement with the music. 1 did not
sec this all at once. 1 took iu tlie situation after I returned to the window nnd
stood there watching the creature out of
range of his eye and wondering if my
presence woul.l make Itself felt and divert its interest from lhe music. But no;
I don't believe even speech would have
broken the spell. The creature seemed
dazed, entrancs'd, fascinated!
"Afler watching him for a time I went
quietly over to my daughter and without
stnrtling her by so much ns a hint of my
Strange discovery I n-sixd hei to desist
for a tew moments from the minor and
semiweird notes she wns playing and
strike into one or two lively airs. She
disl so, while I returned and watched the
"After a couple of minutes of tbe rattling music the snnke began to grow restive. It reared its head, beat it from side
to side and showed other symptoms of
restlessness or anger. The music kept
on; the snake began to writhe and shiver
ns if in distress; finally it uucoiled and
glided away out of sight in tbe underbrush.
"When I told my discovery to the male
portion of tbe family, they were nil ready
to watch for that snnke and kill him at
the first opportunity, but 1 forbade that.
I desired to make a further study of his
love of music, and I did so. I prepared
my daughter to look for bis ndvent again,
and bis snnkeship did not disappoint ns.
Again nnd again we watched him creep
to bis musical rendezvous, nnd ngnin and
again we tested the s[u,ility of his musical tastes. We proved beyond the
shadow of a doubt that low, tweet music,
minor, sad or weird notes, fascinated that
snake, and tbat anything lively or noisy
repelled bim.
"I grew positively interested in the
study and even f.sund myself bestowing
a sort of humi'i. pity on the reptile, but
It resulted in ni good, for tbe other members of the family slssl not share my feelings, aud I must Dnlah my story by saying that the cn*atun''H love for Chopin's
uoctiir-pcs cist bim his life during one of
his visits under our window."

"I can tell you one thing," said the retired burglar, "we gentlemen of th* road
know a great deal more of the value of
the small things of a household than the
families do who own them. Now it would
naturally appear tbat a creaking door
would be an alarm to tbe sleepers as well
as to the person entering a house at midnight, but it isn't so in either case.
"You know there's a saying thst creaking doors bang long. The people who
live in a house that has a creaking door
get so used to it that they never hear it.
Or if tbey should waken they sleep again
as soon as they recognize the sound. The
best work I have done has been in a
bouse where tbe doors creaked and groaned at tbe lightest touch.
"The next best aid to us is a clock. Yon
can have no idea bow noisy a clock is
until you have been without one in your
sleeping room and then start In with one
of those round nickel plated timepieces
tbat you can hear all over the house and
eut in the back yard. I could test the silver on tbe dining table or make a fire ln
the kitchen stove, and that clock would
prevent uny one bearing me. Just so
often it will give a click that would
waken the seven sleepers, but nobody
pays any attention to it.
"But the best bs-lp of all ln our trade U
—bless its little heart—tbe baby! Everybody is so dead sleepy in tbe bouse where
there's a baby that a roll of thunder
wouldn't waken 'em. And If the baby
cries they can't possibly hear any otber
sound on earth. Either wny you take lt
th* baby Is the burglar's best friend, and
we're always good to thc .little shavers."
