not to bo.mi- themselves unduly.    In]
this age ir. is Impossible to expect the \
world in turn its attention to ua unless we let It know that wb possess

great mining properties in this dis

know it, and once capital Is convinced with the truth of our claim, it will

How often doss ths* chopper of some stone,
While tolling it Ills task of hesve snd shock,
Find ln the hesrt spsce ot 1 severed rock
The Impress of some fern thst once had growa,
Full of aspiring life snd color, tone,
Deep In the forest where the shadows Sock,
Till, caught within the sdamantino block,
It Isy for ages hidden and unknown!
So many a beauteous thought blooms lu the mind,
But, unexpressed, droops down Into tb* soul
And lies unuttered in the silence there
Until some opener of the soul shall find
That fernlike, fossiled dream complete snd whole
And marvel at its Iwauty past compare!

men, were stationed during tbe year
1862 almost as far north aa the borders of Nepal We had plenty of skirmishing wltb tbe dacolts for a time,
but finally dealt tbem such heavy
blows tbat tbey drew off and left us
In peace. We were in the midst of
what seemed to be peace wben tbe
government dispatched a large train
of treasure and military supplies from
Goruckpoor for Gboorka. Colonel Kem-
ble, wbo bad been ordered to take
command of tbe garrison at the latter
place, being just back from a year's
leave of absence in England, was wltb
tbe train, and the wbole was escorted
by 230 cavalrymen.   Tbe route for the
train brought It past our station, where
It rested for a day and then moved
on. In a defile 15 miles to the north
of ns It was ambusbed by over a thousand dacolts and suffered a severe
misfortune. There was not only a
heavy loss in killed and wounded, but
the treasure and a portion of the supplies were captured and run off.
The remnant of tbe train returned
to us and went into camp until re-enforcements could come up, and the
bullet beaded, tyrannical Colonel Kern-
ble, whose obstinacy and recklessness
bad brought about tbe disaster, pro
ceeded to make it redbot for ever-***
body. Any set of men except British
soldiers would have mutinied and
taken his life. Raging over his defeat and feeling his helplessness, he op
dered out detachments and commanded tbem to bring in every native they
could overhaul. It was a well populated country, with hundreds of loyal natives to be picked up. but tbe colonel
proceeded to look upon each and every
one aa guilty of having bad a hand
In the attack on the train. More than
a score were shot or hung offhand,
While others were whipped at the post
or ordered out of tbe district lt was
a reign of terror for three weeks, and
the end was a fitting one.
My own detachment one day brought
In a mere boy whom we hnd found
cowering In a thicket I do not believe
be had tbe slightest knowledge of the
ambush or took any part in It He was
ta timid lad, whose father bad been one
of the first ones hung, and be was so
frightened tbnt but little could be got
out of blm. Tbe colonel bulldozed and
browbeat blm and finally ordered hla
execution on the ground tbat be was a
spy. It was only wben be knew tbat
he most die tbat tbe young fellow
braced np and showed hla courage, and
M he waa being led away to execution
be said to tbe colonel:
"Sablb Colonel, I am Innocent and
yon will be punished for my death.
You may shoot me and bury my body,
but my spirit will follow you to the
Half an hour later be waa dead, but
be was the last one to be executed.
Tbat evening aa tbe colonel entered the
officers' mesa tent for supper all of ua
noticed that be bad a queer, troubled
look on bis face and that he cast furtive glances behind htm. After a bit
be tried to be Jocular, but tbe effort
wu a failure. He auld something
•bout not feeling well, but nobody dared question blm. At midnight that
night we got an explanation. The
colonel called tbe sentinel Into bis
tent and with white fnce and trembling voice nnd tbe perspiration standing out on bis forehead be said:
"Man. do you see that boy sitting on
tbe chest r
"I see nobody, sir," replied tbe sentinel.
"He Is ihsre, I tell you! He followed me to mesa and back, and be
has been here ln plain sight all the
evening. Take him away!"
"But there's nobody here, sir."
And there wasn't The sentinel called In two officers, who looked and
senrelied In vain and assured Colonel
Keinhle tbat no hoy was present. He
tried to turn it off with a laugb, but In
less than 24 hours every man In camp
knew that the colonel was haunted by
a specter. He made a brave effort to
bluff it out, but lt was useless. Tbe
specter followed at his heels by day
and sat by bis bedside at night, and
ln a week tbe strong, aggressive man
was becoming a mental wreck. He
turned to us for pity and sympathy,
but we had little to give. He had been
brutal in bis vengeance.
The surgeon looked upon the case
at first as some disorder of the brain,
but later on acknowledged that lt wu
something beyond bis medicine. No
one else could see the specter. The
colonel would say that it sat beside
him or stood in the door, but there was
nothing for other eyes to rest upon.
He would draw bis sword and cut and
slash and thrust nt the specter, but he
could not harm It. By the surgeon's
advice the colonel returned to Goruckpoor. It was reported as a case of
breaking down over mental anxiety,
but hundreds of people came to know
better. The specter followed him back,
followed him to the bouse of a friend,
sat with blm through every night and
dogged at his heels through every hour
of the day. He could no more shake
It off than he could change the color
of his eyes. He made tbe gamest sort
of fight knowing tbat his future career
was at stake, and at lengtb all men
came to pity him—pity blm and avoid
him as one accursed. He was medically
treated, given brief furloughs and
every effort made to build him up, but
at the end of eight months, every day
and every night of which had been a
terror to blm, he ended by blowing
out hla brains.
Was It a case of a man haunted by
a spirit seeking revenge? It was not
ao reported officially, but from first to
last and from the highest to tbe lowest
and this Includes two surgeons, it was
fully and firmly believed that lt was,
and the uncanny affair had a great
influence over other officers in their
future treatment of tbe natives.
Hl.torr of tbe "Ul.rn."
There Is not an actor, an actress, a
vocalist or other public performer, including tbe politician, but must be interested in tbe hiss and its origin.
Dr. Alnslle Holds in Tbe Humanitarian tells, under the title of "Before
Babel," of his researches as to tbe prevailing language before the "confusion
of tongues."
Referring to tbe aforesaid awesome
word, he writes: "Perhaps the sibilant
88 (st ts, sh) is one of tbe oldest sounds
In animated nature, as it undoubtedly
Is one of the simplest to produce.
"Vocalized in the English hiss (hist
bush) we find the pure sibilant adopted
•by beasts, birds and reptiles as an expressive of the warning In times of
"Even tbe crustacean clrrhipeds can
produce tbe sound, when 'there la an
adjacent source of danger,' although
tbey are not supplied with a proper vocal apparatus.
"Besides acting as a warning not to
Its own kith, some predatory animals,
as, for Instance, some of tbe smaller
cnrnlvora and certain snakes, utter
tbe Bound In a minatory manner to
ward off objectionable intruders from
tbelr lair.
"Equivalent In tbe former case to tbe
expressions 'Keep quiet' 'Stand still,'
a biss is construed in Its more widely
known sense among animals ot different species as 'Come forward at your
peril,' impressing a visitor in search of
hospitality much In tbe same way as
did the legend 'Cave canem,' on the
threshold of a Roman mansion."
Tbe paragraph concludes sagely: "Our
English hiss Is mainly restricted to the
use of dissatisfied playgoers. The
sound here retains its primitive meaning—a warning note."

that* tbe party could scarcely reach

that he finally broke down through

Duko of Newcastle, wbo was the

to stop off on tbelr wify to St. Louis at

for Its shooting. Tbe prince brought

Aa the royal party approached a
farmhouse an unmistakably British
settler appeared at tbe door and Invited
every one except the Duke of Newcastle to enter.
"Not you. Newcastle!" be shouted. "I

Accordingly tbe party passed on, and

Tlie Conductor*. Ready Ansiver.
The Metropolitan Street Railway
company has in Its employ a philosopher in the person of a Broadway conductor. It was late ln tho evening,
and his car on its up town trip had
reached the vicinity of the city hall.
As it passed one of tbe taller office
buildings a stout woman, clutching
him by the arm, exclaimed:
"Oh, conductor, how many stories
high is that building?"
" 'Leven," laconically replied the conductor, without so much as an upward
glance. The woman sank back with a
sigb of satisfaction.
Just then a small man with a large
traveling bag rushed in almost out of
"I aay, conductor," he gasped, "what
time can I get to the Grand Central
" 'Leven," was the quiet reply.
"That's good," commented the email
man, evidently relieved.
At this juncture another man climbed aboard that wanted to know about
what time the car would reach the
Gllsey House.
' 'Leven," again replied the conductor, wltb a weary look.
When questioned as to the uniformity of his answers, he replied:
"Yes. You see, if you hesitate about
answering 'em, tbey git worried, but
if you have an answer ready they're
satisfied. Now, about this time of
night I always say "Leven.' It's a

The Queen, and Jenny Lind.
There Is a pretty story told of Queen
Victoria and Jenny Lind which shows
how the modesty of two women, the
queen of England and the queen of
song, caused a momentary awkwardness which the gentle tact of the singer
It was on a night when Jenny Lind
was to sing at Her Majesty's Opera
House tbat the queen made her first
public appearance after the memorable
Chartist day.
For the great artist too, this waa a
first appearance, for it was the beginning of her season at a place where the
year before she bad won unparalleled
fame. It happened that the queen entered the royal box at the same moment that tbe prima donna stepped upon the stage. Instantly a tumult of acclamation burst forth.
Jenny Lind modestly retired to tbe
back of the stage, waiting till the demonstration of loyalty to tbe sovereign
should subside. The queen, refusing to
appropriate to herself that which she
Imagined to be Intended for the artist
made no acknowledgment
At length, when tbe situation became
embarrassing, Jenny Lind, with ready
tact ran forward to the footlights and

was caught up at the end of the solo by

Tbe queen then came to the front of

Why Road. Are Crooked Ira -China.
Tbe Chinese road la private property,
a strip taken from somebody's land.
This is done much against tbe will of
the owner, since he not only loses tbe
nae of it but also still bu to pay taxes
on it
One consequence is that It la wide
enough for only one vehicle, and carts
can pus one another only by trespassing on tbe cultivated land. To prevent
this tbe farmers dig deep ditches by
tbe roadside. As tbe surface wears
away and the dust blows off It gradually grows lower, and after awhile It
becomes a drain for the surrounding
fields. A current forms ln tbe rainy
aeuon, whicb still further hollows lt
ont and thus bu arisen the proverb
that a road a thousand years old becomes a river.
Those whose lands are used for roada
naturally prefer to have the roads run
along the edge of their fa'rms Instead
of cutting across them, and this accounts for tbe fact tbat Chinese roads
are often ao crooked tbat one may
have to go a considerable distance to
reach a place that la In reality but a
few miles away. Thla always Interests

Pills, mui the good they have done
me.   1 nm never without them.
"I have been a great sufferer with
pains in my back, in the region of
my kidneys. 1 was very sick, and at
times could not attend to my work
at all.
"I used several medicines, but nothing I ever tried seesmed to help me
in tho li'issi, until a friend of mine
udviscd me to try Dodd's Kiiliu*y
Pills. I immediately found relief,
unsl was able to resume my work.
"I used altogether seven boxes before being completely cured. Since
then I have never been sick a duy.
I have never had the slightest indication of a return of thc trouble."
It is hard to understand how anyone will continue to suffer from Lame

For years Mr. Hamilton Waters,
tho well-known cattlo buyer of
Kidgeville, Ont., was an acute sufferer from neuralgia,which was Inter
complicated with rheumatism and
stomach trouble. But now, thanks
to Dr. Williams' Pink 1'ills, he is enjoying tho best of health. Speaking
of his illns'ss und subsequent euro,
fllr. Waters said:—"For sevi'n years
I suffered great agony from neuralgia, the pains were of a darling, cx-
erutlating nature, and for days at a
time would be so great that I fi'nr--
i*d I would lose my reason. To increase my misery, I was attacked
with rheumatism, and this was closely followed by stomach trouble. My
joints and limbs became swollen
and I was almost helpless, i suffered frsun nausea and a decided Ion thing for food. I became very thin,
and wus constantly troubled with
cold sweats. At different Limes I was
treated by three physicians without,
receiving anything in the way of
permanent benefit. I grew despondent unsl began to think that I would
always be a sufferer, when one day
my slruggist advised me to try Dr.
Williams' l'ink Pills. He said that
within his knowledge there was not
a cuse where the pills bad been used
but what benefit had followed, and
ho added ; "That is saying a lot in
their favor, for 1 have sold over live
thousand boxes, and have not bad a
complaint from anyone." Following
his advice, I procured a supply of the
pills, and after a few weeks I could
nsite un Improvement in my condition. Dy the time I had taken eight
boxes of the pills the neuralgia and
rheumatism hud entirely disappeared,
and my stomach was once more in a
healthy condition. My appetite improved, and I gained in weight and
Strength daily. It is now ovst two
years since 1 discontinued the use of
tbe pills, and all that time I have
enjoyed tins best of health ansl
haven't felt an ache or pain, so that
I think tbat 1 am safe in saving
that my cure i.s ps>riminent. In fact,
eight boxes of Dr. Williiuns' Pink
Pills accomplished what three ilos--

said Unit "neuralgia is a cry of the

Slocan is a city and the letters
patent are only lacking to at once
proceed with the election of the necessary government. It is a compulsory requisite, rendered so by circumstances, that the utmost care and
economy shall be practised from the
very inception of civic authority,aud
it behooves the citizens to exercise
mature judgment in the selection of
men capable and eflicient to govern
the city. Lessons can be taken from
the experiences of other places, and
the primal feeling actuating all
should be that of promoting harmony
and progress.
Despite contrary assertions made a
month ago, the government will do
-considerable tinkering with the Mineral Act this MMlon, The amend
ment dealing with agent! ste king

stopping a nuisance and to encourage
development, but it will be found to
work a hardship, particularly In tin
newer sections. If the several mining recorders an: given latitude by
the department to grinl pWttl!
for trails to count ns assessment work,
then a big benefit is conferred upon
the prospector, and a long Step will
have been taken towards opening up
,thc country. "I'is a plly, though, our
legislators would not leave the act
alone for a while and M give confidence to investors.
