He had advice ou the subject that the

Aid. McNeish seconded the resolution offered by Aid. Smith.
The mayor declined to put the motion, laying it over for further consideration.
Aid. McNeish tendered his resignation as a member of the court of revision. Tho mayor declined to accept
the resignation.
Mora or less wrangling followed.the
mayor finally waxing wrothy over the
city solicitor mixing up in the affairs
of tiie council without orders from the
aldermen or himself. He wanted individuals on the board to know that
he was mayor and his position had lr»
le respected. He would be no figure
bead and if there were orders to give,
he was the one to give them. If tlie
city solicitor went contrary to him, be
would fire him quick. No hole-in the*
corner   business   would   be tolerated
and he, as mayor, must be considered
in all  things.   All  business  must be
above board.
Council adjourned.
Shortly after the sixth game started
McMillan, Slocan, was ordered to the
bleachers to recover his wiud. Then
Slocau got a hustle on and Terry shot
home the puck.   Time, two minutes.
The seventh game was the longest
of all, Denver playing a strong defence. Lindow scored after eight
minutes* play, but it was disputed
and disallowed. With the ensuing
faceoff Denver did some rushing. A
favorable opening occurred and Brown
slammed the puck into tho net, scoring the only goal for New Denver, in
18 minutes. Everybody cheered for
the parson.
A minute or so remained to play,but
nothing tangible resulted. Milne got
a bad bump just as time was called,
laying him out for a while.
The customary cheers followed, the
Deiiveiites feeling thankful for not
being shut out. The Silverton girls
came up prepared to play either Slocan or Denver girls, but they found
DO victims in sight and had to withdraw. »
Following were tho teams engaged
in the struggle:

Donat Laflamtne whom everybody
knows had Diabetes. This is one ot
tlie extreme stages of Kidney Disease, and It ba es ordinary medial

let Mr, Laamme tell tho most wonderful part of the story himself:
"Two boxes of Dodd's Kidney PilU
cured me," ho says. "My Diabetes tl

A remarkable incident ni tho voracity of tho perch is related ,l>y Mr.
11. Cholmondeloy l'ennull. in removing the hook from the jiiwm of a lish
which he had caught In Windermere
nn eye wus accidentally displaced
and remained adhering to it Knowing the recuperative capabilities of
piscine organization, he returned the
maimed perch, which was too small
for the basket, to the lake ami, being
somewhat scaht of minnows, threw
the line in again with the eye attached as a bait, there being no
other of any description on the
hook. The llout disupjieored almost
instantly, and on landing the newcomer it turned out to be the fish hs
had thrown in a moment before and
which had thus been actually caught
by its own eye.
"This incident," says Mr. Pennell,
"proves, I think, conclusively thai
the structure of cold blooded animals
enables them to endure very severs
injuries and wounds without experiencing material inconvenience, a fact
which may tend to remove any
qualms of conscience felt by anglers
on the score of the sufferings supposed to be inflicted by their capture."
Perhaps a less striking illustration
of the same fact came under my own
observation in the Lake St. John
country some time ago. A fingerling
trout had taken one of my flies, and,
though the hook had torn one of tho
gill rakers, I was anxious that if
possible the little fish should live. I
gently.placed it in the shallow water
at my feet to see if it could revive
and swim away. In a very short
timo it had recovered from
its dazzlement, when, to my
utter astonishment, it rushed directly to the fly upon which it had just
been caught and which had carelessly
been allowed to drop into the shallow water and once more impaled itself!—Forest and Stream.

WIDOW OF BALZAC.
Tbe  Author  Left  Her ex Great Han*
■nd m Lerrna-r ot Debt.
When Mine. IlunsUn's husband died
lt was supposed thut her union wltb
laulzuc would occur at ouee, but obstacles were Interposed by others. Her
own family looked down upon the
great French nntl ior aa a mere story
teller, aud by ber late husband's people
fordid motives were imputed to him to
account for bis devotion to the heiress.
The latter objection wus removed a
few years luter by tlie widow's giving
up to her daughter the fortune left to
her by M. Ilnuskti. This was followed
by her remarriage after a "beautiful
heart drama," as her husband calls It,
"which bad lusted seveuteen years."
Six months later Balzac died, end my
aunt found herself for the second time
a widow, wltb the burden of ber bus-
band's large debts and that of his
great name, which she bore with such
dignity for thirty years longer. She
never spoke of the blow bis death had
been to her. She must have felt lt
deeply, and she would not have been
human If she bad not cherished resentment against those whose opposition
to her wishes bad robbed her of some
years of happiness, but If lt was tbe
case she never let any one guess It
Once only I beard ber make a remark
which gave me a strange Insight Into
her inner life. We were talking about
happiness in general, und I observed
how very eager people were to Interfere with thnt of their neighbors. My
aunt looked at me for some time, then
slowly snld: "I think that this comes
from the fnct that so very few people
understiind whnt real happiness lt
They mostly look upon it as a superfl-
ciiil thing nnd treat It with the light
heurtedness they apply to nil other enjoyments of existence. If they understood and realized what tt reully menus
for those who consider life In Its true
and serious light they would respect lt
more."
An old fashioned woman feels
mighty extravagant when she eats a
meal st a restaurant.
What has become of the old fashioned bride who expected, of course, to
do her owu washing?
What has become of the old fashioned womnn who pierced the children's
ears to strengthen their eyes?
What has become of the old fashioned womnn who made sonp bo thick
that she referred to it as meat, drink

What lias become of the old fashioned apple pie that contained bits of raw
apple inside and wus as mouutuinous

Warge, Dar In Newcastle.
In Newcastle, England, the mayor en-
Joys the privilege of once a year being
allowed to select and kiss any young
woman who takes his fancy among
the coal city's inhabitants. Tbe kiss
ls rather costly, however, for it is tbe
custom to present the young person
kissed wilh a sovereign ($5), while a
further gift Is made her by the lady
mayoress, no doubt to disprove Jeiil-
ousy. The sheriff, not to be outdone,
nlso bestows a kiss upon a fair bystander, at the same rate of expenditure. The occasion Is known as Barge
dny. when the mayor and corporation
proceed in a procession of four gayly
Macerated steamers und two old stnte
barges to claini the soil of the river
Tyue. Their joiuw»?y over, the mayor
stands upon the boundary stone, and it
is here that the kissing ls indulged in.
STOMACH   TROUBLE.
The   Agonies  of   Indigestion   Can   Be
Cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
All over tiie land there are people
whose lives had be*:*n made miserable
through the pangs of indigestion,
who have been restored to the enjoyment oi' health through the use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pilis. One of
these ls Mr. Wm. Moore, of Welland,
Ont. Mr. Moore is the manager of
the electric light plant In that town,
and stands high In the estimation of
the citizens. He says: "It is really
a pleasure to speak in favor of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. For four years
prior to 1903 I suffered great torture from indigestion and stomach
trouble. I could not eat solid food
without experiencing great agony,
and for over two years 1 had to resort to a milk diet. I had grown
emaciated and was almost unfit for
active work. I was treated by doctors and took advenised medicines,
but without any lasting benefit. One
day a friend urged me to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I began their
use, but I must confess that ft was
without much hope that they would
cure nie. After taking a couple of
boxes I could see an improvement,
and this gave me encouragement. I
continued using the pills until I had
taken eight boxes, when I was completely cured and able to eat any
kind of food I desired. I shall always praise Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
as they .saved me from such misery
as only a dyspeptic knows. I might
add that, my wife has also used the
pills for troubles that afflict he sex,
and  has been fully restored, to health"
Bad blood, poor blood, watery
blood. Is the <#uise of nearly every
ailment that afflicts mankind. It is
because every dose of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills make new, rich, red blood
that they have such wonderful power
to cure such ailments a3 Indigestion,
anaemia, rheumatism, neuralgia, St.
Vitus' dance, heart troubles, kidney
and liver y troubles, and the special
ailments of women, young and old

"I hope," he continued, "that you can

"That's what troubles me," said Mrs.
Witherby. "She certainly is fine, and 1
hardly dare look at her or say a word
to her for fear she will get up and
leave. I am so afraid"—
Sbe did not finis!- tbe sentence, but
looked anxiously into the distance.
"Of what?" asked Witherby. "You
don't mean to say that there are any
preliminary signs of her going, do
you?"
"Well," replied Mrs. Witherby, "not
exactly that But you know, my dear,
tbe work we have in this house ls not
easy. Every cook we have bad has
complained of it. I am almost afraid
she wlll think it too much."
Witherby puffed his cigar somewbn!
concernedly. He bad dined well ami
felt correspondingly munificent.
"This," he said, "is no time for fool
Ish economy. We've got a good cook.
and In these days they are as scarce an
hens' teeth. Keep her by all means.
Make lt as easy for her as you can.
Tour peace of mind and my stoma, h
are both worth something. Get some
one to help ber if you want to."
"That's what I was thinking of."
said Mrs. Witherby. "Tou see. she has
all the washing and Ironing to do, be
sides cleaning up the dining room. I'll
get some one to come ln once a week
and do this for her. Tben I am sure
she will be perfectly contented."
"Good!" said Witherby. "Just the
thing. I can now look forward to a life
of true ease."
One week later as Witherby enme
home from his business by some subtle
instinct that husbands acquire he knew
merely by looking at the outside of his
bouse that something was up. He entered and made his way rapidly to the
kitchen, where his wife was bending
over the stove, with a very red face
and a careless air.
"Has sbe gone?" said Witherby.
"Has the finest cook we ever had left
us?"
"She has." said Mrs. Witherby. her
tears mingling with the chicken broth.
"Whst was the matter? What excuse did she give?"
"She said," replied Mrs. Witherby
feebly, "thst she hud too little to do."-

With a steely glitter ln her eye the

"Mr. Spoonamore," she said, "did you

Hereupon she banded blm a sheet of

FRAIL LITTLE ONES.
The little ones are frail. Their
hold upon life Is slight. No symptom that Indicates any of the little
ailments of childhood should be allowed to pass for a moment without
proper attention. The little ailment
may soon become a serious one, and
then lt may be too late to save a
precious little life. If Baby's Own
Tablets are kept in the house, the
danger of serious trouble can be
averted, and the minor troubles
promptly cured. An occasional Tablet to the well child will prevent illness. The Tablets are absolutely safe
and contain no poisonous soothing

Mrs. Prank Elliott, author of "The
Shooting of tlie New Idea," thus
writes of artists' models in England: The ordinary individual on
passing in the street a young woman of picturesque but rather unkempt appeaiaiiee, whose garments
hung in clinging folds and owe nothing to the prevailing fashion, whoso
hat is of ample dimensions, but
would be scorned by uny self-respecting milliner und whose feet api>cur
shod more for comfort thun smart
appearance, would probably remark
with intuitive conviction, "There
goes an artist's model!'' If the entire costume bears the unmistakable
stamp of "honie-mude," the identification would probubly be correct.
Although many other women scorn
fashion plates and dress on thc rational or aesthetic principle, there is
generally no fault to be found with
the workmanship of the garments. As
a. rule eccentricity is a fud of the
(airly well-to-do. But the artist's
model has no pulelic to dress for. Her
homo is in the studio, where, so long
as she is picturesque, no one cures to
pry into details.
• Although it is the aim of every
artist to embody his ideas in preliminary studies, done, ns a child
would sny, "entirely out of his own
head," there are few wbo can work
up a drawing or picture without the
assistance of a model. A sculptor
especially, who has to make his work
perfect from every point of view,
would never attempt such an impossible feat. One of the reasons to
which is ascribed the perfection of
the old Greek sculpture is that thc
artists had continual opportunity, in
every-day life, of studying tbe nude,
untramiuelrd human form. Men and
•.vomen of the present day suggest by
their mode of dress little of their
natural figures. The former present
an arrangement in tubes—two tubes
below; a tube on either side; a small
tube nt the top—1 refer of course to
the conventional but most inartistic
"topper"—and a large tube connecting the others. A womun represents an egg-boiler draped from the
lower bulb, and to divine tho form
of the limbs us fashionably clothed
would   be  sheer  ■jiuesswork,
lt is all very well for such nn artist as the lute !•'.  C. Corbould, who
found—so   he   snid—n   broom   with   a I
cout   on     it   sullicient   to   suggest     a ;
man     in    armor,     but    the     average '
draughtsman      is      more      exacting. I
Where, then, does he find his models?
Relations and friends are often ko far
obliging as to sit. for a head, but he
has  to    suit thoir  convenience,     not
they  his,   ond   he   can  only   -victimise
them up to a certain  point  of boredom.   The  professional  artist's   model
is the standby. She hus    not    to   be
sought after,  but  goes the  round   of
the     studios   in   search     of     engagi*-
ments,  although  when     she  has    obtained  the  reputation  of  a   "Trilby"
she sits only for a chosen few.
Keen .jealousies are as rampant    in
the profession of  model  as     in     any
other.    The acknowledged    "Trilby"
holds herself as superior to the roni-
mon or griftlen  model  as    a star no*
tress does to    a"Walker on."    Slie Is
a connoisseur in Qgurea and does not
hesitate to criticize _ rival's   attractions   in    merciless   anil   plain-spoken

I tired of the ill-paid drudgery ol   tho
unskilled occupations nre tempted by

earned in a studio, and  if    they    aro
gifted with exceptionally good looks
they  mny  earn  their  living    literally
"on their heads."

somewhat, amusing lo observe at Academy solreei the greeting lietween
tho president nnd the profossldnal
beauty, who perhaps followed on the
heels of a bishop. The twinkle in the
eye wns reserved for the ex-inodel.
Ordinary good looks are, however,
not sufficient to obtain regular employment. The figure Is equally, or
perhaps more useful. And here comes
the ordeal for tho would-be model
not brought, up in the studios. She
finds she hns to sit for the "nlt.o-

and half the world of pictures.
However difficult it may be for

ing, newspaper work is often regarded, by those engaged therein, not as
a life-work, but ns a temporary means
of securing, amid attractive surroundings, the means necessary to complete
a life training in law, medicine, or
.some other occupation. Another reason may be that newspaper men, wbo
nf necessity come into touch "with
bus!. ess men who instantly appreciate
ability, are drafted oil Into other lines
of activity, by a continuous absorption carried out through moro tempting remunerative rewards. And, after a few yenrs the glamor of newspaper work largely wears off to the
men who are in the business, and the
Steady "grind" of daily work becomes
more nnd more the outstanding feature of the life. For newspaper work
is a "show-down" day by day. The
good editorial In last week's issues, or
the big "scoop" made yesterday, wont
avail anything to-day if your competitor .get8 or has the bettor news service. A newspaper dlffors from a
bank in that It can havo no "rest." nu

ber.and nftor a time can leave all details to subdrdinateS, and secure a good
Income while enjoying a well-earned
rest as the result of honosL dealing. So can a lawyer with his client.',
and almost every other profession or
business. But with the editor it ls nol
bo. Yostordav's success cannot alone
for today's failure. Tho reading public consldor nothing but the issue
they ure reading; they do not relate
it to its predecessors, Hence, as
many an old newspaper man has remarked, whon lu* was weary of the
forced gait he had to maintain to
keep abreast of younger and more energetic men—"Tho newspaper business Is a good busiuess—to get out
of."
The    Canadian    Wost,    like    every
other young country, is essentially the
lund of opportunity for young men.
Newspaper work, as before noted, boing In an especial degree a young
man's profession, it Is to bo expected
that in Western Canada tho men controlling tho press would in average
ago be much below those in other
pails of tho continent. This Is remarkably truo. "Hoy editors" am

the news of the suicide became
known the street in front of the bank
was quickly filled with men, women
and children, demanding their money.
Tho directors of the bank applied to
the common pleas court for a receiver, and W. H. English was appointed, his bond being fixed at $40,-

when the doors of the bank were
closed by order of the court. The directors insist that the bank funds are

Comfortable Living
WITH A
Chatham Incubator
Poultry raising with a Chatham
Incubator ii a very profitable and
easily managed occupation. Unless
you want to go into it extensively it
need take but very little of your time.
Government reports show that the
demand for chickens in Canada ls
greatly in excess of tbe supply and
Great Britain is always clamoring
for mors. That means a steady
market and good prices for chickens.
You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be
laying. While she is batching and
brooding a few chickens she could be
laying five or six doxen eggs. Tbe
percentage of chickens she hatches is
much tess than that produced by the
Chatham Incubator.
It will pay you to own a Chatham
Incubator.
Chatham Incubators contain every
improvement of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. They ara made of thoroughly
seasoned wood, with two walls, case
within case. Between these walls
mineral wool is packed forming ths
very best insulation. Each piece of
the case is mortised and grooved and
screwed, making the whole as solid
as a rock. Chatham Incubators are
equipped with scientifically perfect
regulators which are an infallible
means of regulating tbe temperature.
No cash to pay until
October, 1905.
We will start you raising poultry
for profit with a Chatham Incubator
without one cent of money from yo*
until next Fall. That means that roe
can take off seven or eight hatches
and make considerable money out of
the Incubator before the first payment
becomes due.
We couldn't make this offer if we
were not certain that if you accept It
you will get complete satisfaction, if
we were uot positive that the Chatham
Incubator will pay you a handsome
yearly income.
This is a straightforward offer. We
make it (o show our supreme confidence in the Chatham Incubator. We
want you to accept this offer as we
are sure of the satisfaction our Incubator will give. Every machine we
have put out so far has made otber
sales in the same neighborhood.

of a similar distribution in the spring

attraction to investors, for whom the
Slocan offers exceptional advantages
and openings.
A sliding scale of rates, that practically amounts to a penalty on high
grade ores, is not conducive to the
well-being of any camp. Yet, such
treatment is meted out to dry ores
from the Slocau City division by the
Hall Mines smelter, of Nelson. The
Ottawa mine, (Springer creek,posses8es
one of the most valuable grade of ores
in thc country, besides being very-
desirable as a flux. A minimum rate
is imposed on all oro under IW) oz in
.silver of $lJ per ton; if the ore reaches
150 oz it must pay -810j and for every
100 oz or fraction above that another
$1 per ton is inflicted. The rate is
unfair and unjust, but the Ottawa
must suffer it or leave its ere unmarketed, As au excuse for the peculiar
treatment accorded,the smelter poople
say thaiy eaunot afford to bave their
working capital lied up in extra rich
ores. Time was wheu the dry ores
from this division received different
tie.itmt'iit, but that was before the advent of the Hunter V mine, at Ymir,
in which smelter .people are interested.
For Instance, the Arlington mine was
.once credited with a $-r> rate, but $7.r>()
was the usual charge on local ores,and
they were eagerly Sought after. Our
ores contain practically all thu ingredients of a lirst-class flux and any
smelter should ba glad to have them.
Moreover, they are further desirable
because their richness tones up in
value the smelter's bullion. Hunter
