Communication read from John
Houston, of the Nelson Tribune, re
tlie cancellation of the city books: "I
am informed that an order placed
witli Tho Tribune Association, Limited, for a voucher register and for a
receipt register, two large blank
books, has not had tlie sanction of
vour mayor and does not meet with
the approval your aldermen as a
body. Your clerk, apparently, believes in patronizing home industries.
You, apparently,, would rather pur
chase your blank books from Timothy
Eaton printing offices in thc east.
However, in order that your clerk
shall not suffer, any expense that the
Tribune Association has incurred on
the order in question will be considered as profit and loss." Letter received and fyled, on motion of Aid.

sulphides, giving returns of 9358,GO

Margery lifjsijs Development.
Ceo. Weinant andS. C. Jackson.of
Sandon, came in Friday from the
Margery group, on the 1st north fork
of Lemon, having finished their work
for the year. They drove over 60
feet on the lead, being in 138 feet
(rom thc surface. For the last 15
feet a new chute of ore has come up
from thc floor, being a foot in width.
The ore is a mixture of copper aud
iron pyrites, similar to that of the
Rossland camp. Accompanying it is
an 18-inch paystrcak showing galena
and giving values of $6 in gold and
15 oz silver. The owners of thc property have sent 5'J pounds of the new-
ore away for a general assay. Next
season tliey will sink a winze 50 feet
on the ore and thoroughly test it.
The Margery lead is an iron capped
dyke, 300 feet in width, with small
stringers of galena exposed on the
surface. In the drift, the seam of
galena and talc has been continuous
from the portals.

During the past few days J. Frank
Collom, managing director of the Arlington, has purchased a two-thirds
interest in the Morris and nil of the
Hope olalnu from Al Owens, of New
Denver. John Wafer has also sold
to Mr. Collom the Katie fraction.
The three claims are on the north
side of Springer creek, close to the
sawmill, and carry a fair amount of
good timber.

J. Frank Collom has purchased
from R. I. Kirkwood thc Mineral

The new C.P.R. barge was launched at Rosebery last week. On Tuesday tlie deckhands on the Slocan
were ordered to lay rails on the
barge, refused and were fired. The
carpenters at the shipyard were then
ordered, refused, and were tired. A
new boat crew came up from Nelson
next day in charge of Supt. Downie
and Capt. Gore, and they refused to
work when they heard of the situation. Then the waiters were asked
to nssist in coaling up, but refused
and quit. All this trouble grew out

the rails.   _

COPVRlOHT.   t0 9S.      BY   THE   AUTHOR
"I hnve great news for you, Mnry
Captain Conwiiy hits been here."
"Captain Conway? Yes I And what
did lie*,-ant, mothert What news did
he bring!"
Mnry Hamilton took off her hlnck
straw hat as she spoke and pushed the
hair away from her forehead with n
weary gesture. Mrs. Hamilton busied
herself with the simple tea table, assiduously arranging ("-kites, setting tho tea-
sptxins straight In the saucers, laying
the butter knife at an exact angle and
smoothing nway an infinitesimal crease
in the white cloth.
"Ho—he—he made a suggestion to
me. Mary," sho began nervously.
"A suggestion I" Mary Hamilton sat
down and eyed her mother expectantly
"You don't  mean that  he proposed to
yon. mother I" sbe exclaimed.
".Something very like it," replied
Mrs. Hamilton, still keeping" herself
very busy with the table.
For a moment there was silence between them. Mary Hamilton sat looking with astonishment at her mother,
and at last she spoke.
"1 suppose it wouldn't be a bad
thing in the mere way of money, mother, "she said slowly. "But—but—oh,
mother, dear, yon could never bring
yourself to do it!"
For the first time Mrs. Hamilton
tnrned and looked straight at her
daughter    "My dear child," she ex-
*" Fou enn't mean that ynu would like m*
lo marry Captain Couviayl"
claimed, "you don't nnderstandl
Tbere is no question of my marrying
Captain Conway. It ie—at least be
never—besides, my devotion to yonr
poor father's memory should have kept
yon from jumping to any such conclusion. Captain Conway is a good man,
and any woman might be honored in
marrying him. But my heart is in tbe
grave, and—and, besides, ho did not
propose—he does not propose that 1
should consider the question of becoming his wife."
Mary Hamilton stared open eyed at
her mother. "Dear mother," she said
gently, "I am tired tonight The children were very troublesome today, and
the rooms seemed more stuffy than
usual. 1 feel confused. Do tell me just
what Captain Conway did suggest to
Mrs. Hamilton began to pour out the
tea with a vehemence which showed
how perturbed in mind she waa "Your
poor father always said that I was injudicious in telling news," she cried
in honest self abasement. "I ought to
have seen that yon were tired. Here is
your tea. darling. Drink it at once and
have another emp to go on with. The
truth is, Mary, Captain Conway has
flurried me till I hardly know whether
1 am standing %m my head or my heels,
and—and 1 never gave a thought to
your being tired ont with that hatefnl
school. Oh, to think that my daughter
stion Id ever bad been a board school
mistress, not one remove from a national school and yonr father a clergyman in holy orders I'
"My dear mother, do explain yourself, " said Mary, a fcarfnl sense of coming evil gradually overspreading her.
"Oh. my darling." cried the older
woman, "it's all over now—all the
drudgery, all tbe pinching and the nipping! I've said lit tie or nothing because
yon wero slaving yonr youth away in
that horrid, degrading school, bnt now
1 may speak, now 1 may say how bitterly and cruelly I bave felt it all, tbe
humiliations, the—the"—
"Dear, there can be no degradation
or humiliation in honest work," said
Mary patiently and yet with a dignity
which sat becomingly on her tired
yonng face. "And what do yon mean
by its being over t Not surely that Captain Conway wants to marry me."
"Yes, yon I And. oh, my darling, it
has made me so happy," Mrs. Hamilton cried, "almost delirious with hap
"My dear mother," cried Mary, bolting a piece of bread and butter with
what was almost a convulsion, "yon
can't mean tbat you would like mo to
marry Captain Conway I'
"Why not T" asked the mother blankly
"I conldn't do iti" declared the girl
"Conldn't do iti" Mrs. Hamilton's
voice rose almost to a scream. "Couldn't
do It I Why, dear heaven, surely you
would never dream of flying in tbe face
of Providence by refusing him I"
"Certainly I would I"
"He is rich I" cried Mrs  Hamilton.
"He is old enough to be my father,'
mid Mnry   "And I donht If he is rich.'
"Captain of one of the largest steam-
ataiiM afloat" protest**-! Mia Hamilton.
"He is exceedingly well off. Ho can
provide for you adequately Ho has an
excellent position"—
"I don't— sronldn't— never could love
him I" Mary burst ont
"Perhups not: bnt you can respect
him I" cried tho mother.
"I don't know that I should even do
that ranch,') Mary returned. Then she
suddenly clasped her hands together and
looked appeallngly at tho excited woman opposite to her. "Oh, mother I Don't
yon understand why 1 cannot do this
thing? Have you lieen so unhappy in
our littlo home that you want to sell
me to the first bidder V I've been so
contented in working for yon. Has it
all been for nothing 1"
"Working for ineI" Mrs. Hamilton
exclaimed indignantly. "Working for
me. indeed! And what havo I dono all
these years? Look nt my hands, worked to the bone, cooking, scrubbing,
sewing, contriving, making my own
bits of clothes and never a plate to
show them in in this desolate wilderness of bricks and mortar I No one to
associate with, living a pensioner on
your bounty, without pleasures, interest-- oi change of any kind I And then
to have your work thrown in my teeth,
"Oh. mother!"
"It's all very well to say. 'Oh. mother!' But I'm speaking the truth. All
these years I havo struggled and striven
for you. And now. when you havo a
chance of letting me end uiy days in
peace, you turn up your nose nt a man
whom any woman might be honored by
"You  married   for love yourself.'
said Mary in a very low voice
Mrs. Hamilton caught up the words
and echoed them in the high pitched,
querulous accents of a thoroughly selfish
and superficial person. "Married for
lovo," sbe echoed shrilly. "Yes, and
what did love ever do for mo? I married for love, married on £H0 a year,
drudged on it, slaved, toiled, almost
starved on it. Don't talk to me about
marrying for love, Mary—love in a cottage is a will-o'-the-wisp that leads
many people astray, and your poor father and I were among the number.
Was it natural, right, proper, that be
should die at 35, a wornout, prematurely old man, leaving me helpless,
homeless, penniless, to strngglo on as
best I conld, to drag you np as best I
conld? That was what marrying for
love did for him. poor fellow! Ho never
would own it. He died with his hand in
mine—his last words 'The Lord will
provide'—and now when provision has
come it is only to be rejected."
Mary Hamilton sat still while this
inconsequent torrent cf recollection and
vexation poured from her mother's lipa
At the vision of the red faced, burly,
bluff sailor being regarded as a provision
sent by the Lord to take her from an
independent life of honest work to cne
of degrading idleness, she almost laughed aloud, bnt she resolutely choked
down tbe inclination and spoke quietly
and reasonably to the excited woman
on the other side of tho table.
"Dear mother," she said gently,
"cannot yon for my sake endnre this
life a little longer? After midsummer
we shall be better off. Even now we
can well afford to bave a woman in to
do the rougher work—it bas always
been for you to decide how the money
shall be spent.  For my sake, dear?"
"And why not for mine?" asked the
mother fiercely. "Listen! He has laid
all his plans before me. You will have
a charming house and garden, a couple
of good maidservr-nts, a handsome
housekeeping purse, an ample allowance
for your dress and pocket money. There
will always bo room for me—I am to
live with yon—to give the benefit of
my advice, my experience in housekeeping and all such things. Yon will
havo as mnch society as you care to
take—there will be no anxiety, no

seven days' dinners out of a certain
sum.  You will havo"—
"Oh, don't, mother; please don't!'
the girl cried. "I know all these things
are a temptation to yon, poor dear. It
must be to you just like opening a
prison door and seeing a lovely view
over which you may walk forever on
one conditioa But the condition, doar
mother, the condition! Think! It is
that, of reaching tho fair pathways over
your own child's body. Oh, worse,
worse—over her very soul I It menns
the sacrifice of all tbat is best in yonr
child's life—the giving np of her freedom, ber honor, her ambition, of all her
better self. Don't ask me to do it, dear.
Pray, pray don't I will work—oh. how
I will workl How thankfully and gratefully 1 will bring you every farthing
that 1 make, so that yon may be more
content, less straitened. Mother, dear,
speak for mo! For my father's sake, say
that you won't urge this npon me."
But the words of appeal, glowing,
passionate, heartfnl as they were,
failed to touch the shallow natnre of
the woman who In her day had married
for love and had found tho dinner of
herbs tnrn to dust and ashes botween
her teeth. She rested her head dejectedly upon her hand and gave several long
drawn sighs ef misery, calculated to
■novo the heart of a stone.
"Dear mother!" murmured Mary
from the other side of the table;
But Mrs Hamilton shook Iter head
resolutely "No. Mary, It's DonwyoU)
savin-* 'Dear mother I    It's worth uoth
.ng: It means nothing. I can't make
yon marry Captain Conway; indeed,
I've no wish to do so. I can't make yon
see what is best for you. although you
might trust your own mother to give
you good advice on such a subject. I
can do nothing bnt bear my disappointment with resignation and fortitude.
After all. it is only one more titter pill
to swallow, one more drop of bitterness
in my cup of humiliation and self sacrifice. I'll say nothiug more, Mary, only
—only—don't prate to me about love
and devotion. I've proved the value of
both today. And, after ail my struggles
to give you the best of education, it's
hard, it's heartbreaking."
A sudden thought flashed across Mnry
Hamilton's mind of certain clerical
charities which had from tho time of
her father's death provided her mother
with the wherewithal of living, of the
great institution wherein she had received her education free of cost to her
mother and because of tho position in
life which her father had occupied, but
she said nothing; she felt that it would
be useless.
"So my dream ends," said Mrs.
Hamilton bitterly. "It Bays somewhere
in tho Bible, 'Her children shall rise up
and call her blessed.' It's a fallacy,
nowadays at least; for veneration for
parents has gone out of fashion."
Mary Hamilton sat back in her chair
wondering whether it would be best to
let tho storm pass in silence or not
Mrs. Hamilton got np from her place
and went blindly toward the door. I
say blindly because she went stumbling-
ly and groped her way like a person
whose eyes were full of tears. There
were, however, no tears in her eyes,
but a strange sightlessness, as if she
had suddenly walked into a heavy sea
fog. Then at tbe door sho stnmbled and
fell, not the sharp fall of a person tripping by accident, but the huddled up
dropping to the ground of one unable
any longer to keep her feet
Mary sprang from her seat with a
cry. "Mother—mother—yon are ill!"
she bnrst ont.
The answer came thick and indistinct. "Dying, dying! You have—killed— me 1"
The girl tried to lift the prostrate
woman, but found herself powerless.
She sank npon her knees in an agony
of apprehension.
"No—no—mother; don't say tbatl
Let mo help you—only try to get npl
I'll do anything to please yon—mother
When Mary Hamilton found that ber
mother had slipped into utter unconsciousness, she ran to their nearest
neighbors and begged them to come in
and aid her. So her mother was with
no little difficulty lifted from the ground
and carried np to her bedroom, and a
doctor was quickly sent tot. His fiat
was given without tho smallest hesitation. "It's a stroke," he said, "bnt it
might have been mnch worse; for instance, if it had been on the other side
it would probably bave proved fatal almost immediately. As it Ib, with care,
your mother will probably recover and
be quite or very nearly herself again."
With care! Mary Hamilton's heart
went down to zero ns she heard the two
little simple words which give hope to
some anxions watchers of the sick, but
which open out endless possibilities of
unattainable needs to those who are
poorly placed in the world. In her case
it meant having an experienced person
to tend her mother by day and night
alike, for, be tho circumstances of life
what they would, her work must go on
just the samo With the best intentions
in the world she could not be in two
places at once. Yet, how was she to afford skilled attendance for her mother?
It was a terrible question to answer.
At this point the advantages of the
alliance which tho sick woman hard been
pressing upon her daughter came prominently into view. During the course of
the evening Captain Conway arrived,
eager and anxious as to bis answer,
only to be met with tbe mournful news
tbat Mrs. Hamilton had been seized
with a paralytic stroke and was still
nnconsciona His first words were a
suggestion.  "You will wantannrso.'
"I shall want somo one to look after
my mother while I am away at my

work,"  Mary admitted,    "For tonight
Mrs. Robinson  has kindly promised to
stay with  me, and  tomorrow  I must
find some nice, rcspectublo person"—
"I will send in a proper nnrso at
once," said the sailor, speaking in
rough but kindly accents. "Skilled
nursing is half tho battlo in such cases
as tbem. I never did believe in makeshift nursing. It's the very—tho very
mischief." Ho hnd been going to use
another word, bnt changed it out of
deference to Mnry with a very perceptible effort over tho substitution.
"I can't let you," began Mnry, at
which he put up his hand Imperatively,
"Now. Miss Mnry. noiiu of that, if
you   islsauss      I'm  your   friend,   and
friends are allowed to make themselves
nsefnl to one another In times of trouble nil thu world over. I'll take it all
on myself nnd will account to yonr
mother for the liberty I'm taking when
she's well enough to discuss such
things. So now I'll be off and will send
in a suitable nurse at once. Goodby I
Good bless yon, my dear!"
He roughly pressed her hand and was
gone in a moment, leaving her standing looking desolately after him. She
shuddered as she thought of hiiu as her
possible, nay probable, husband; ho was
so bluff and burly and grizzled, so loud
of voice, so red of face, so dominant.
He jarred upon every fiber of her being.
But it was useless to fight longer against
fate, even in the person of a man who
was utterly and entirely distasteful to
her. She had struggled with all her
might against the sacrifice of her soul's
best instincts, but to no purpose. The
threads were drawing closer and closer
around her, and if her mother recovered
and still demanded the complete sacrifice of herself against which she hud so
passionately fought she bad given her
word and must carry it through to the
very end.
Before a couple of hours had gone by
a white capped nurse in dainty uniform
had arrived at the little houso and had
installed herself in charge of the case,
and when Mary got homo from her work
tho following afternoon Mrs. Hamilton
had recovered her senses again and was
prononnced to bo vastly improved.
Her first mumbled words were as a
deathknell to Mary's heart. "Yon—
promised," she said thickly.
"Yes, yes; I have not forgotten,"
Mary said hurriedly. "Don't think of
that, dear; only get well and I will do
anything you like."
The sick woman gave a murmur of
satisfaction and closed ber eyes again.
Mary tnrned away and went to the
window, where she stood looking ont
trying to keep herself nnder control.
Her face was white and set, her hands
shaking and qold. So her mother bad
not forgotten; the sacrifice would have
to bo made and she must at no distant
time sell herself into a slavery which
would be a living horror. And this was
the end of all her toil, of all her ambitions, of all ber brilliant hopes and
vivid dreamingsl Small wonder that
her heart seemed ns if it had turned to
water within her; that ber soul seemed
numb and dead, as if she had lost herself
in a deep and treacherous morass from
which she could never be extricated, try
and struggle as she would.
I need not dwell upon this part of
Mary Hamilton's story. The hot nnd
dusty summer days dragged drearily by,
each one bringing the inevitable nearer
and nearer. Mrs. Hamilton slowly improved in health. Mary went to and fro
to ber work, the white capped nurse remained in attendance, and Captain
Conway hovered around tbe littlo household like a good angel, an angel with a
red, weather beaten face and with a
very large circumference.
Tbe end came all too soon. He spoke
to her one evening, told her his hopes
and fears—a great many hopes it must
be owned and a very few fears it must
be confessed. And Mary told him honestly that she had never thought of him
before her mother's illness as a possible
husband, told h*m she bad never thought
of marrying him or any one else, thanked him, with tears in her gray eyes, for
his goodness to her mother nnd promised that if he would not expect too much
of her she would do her best to be a
good and faithful wife to him.
Captain Conway's answer was characteristic of the man. He told her with
all the assurance and confidence of an
Adonis 20 years his junior that he
was perfectly satisfied with her promises ; tbat he would teach her to love
him when once she was really his own.
Mary shuddered, but allowed the remark to pass in silence, and, if the
whole truth be told, let an inward
prayer escape her henrt that some thunderbolt might fall and strike her before
that terrible day dawned.
Snch prayers, however, aro mostly
futilo. Mary's wedding day dawned all
too soon, and tho warning, "Be not
afraid with any amazement," rang ont
over the heads of an ashen palo bride,
who had steadfastly and resolutely refused to allow herself to be decked in
bridal attlro; a rather nervous and rubicund bridegroom, who dropped the ring
and mumbled his vows defiantly after
the officiating minister; n mahogany
faced groomsman and a frail, elderly
lady in a mauve silk who leaned npon
the arm of a tall young woman in
nurse's uniform.
So the sacrifice was completed! To
Mary Hamilton, Mary Conway by then,
it passed like a hideous dream, only
there was no awakening.
"My darling child!" cried her mother enthusiastically "I am so happy I
My dear child!"
"I am glad, mother," Mary whispered back and wondered the while if God
wonld ever forgive her for tho false
vows she had plighted, tho outrage she
kad done to herself, for being tho living

Old Abe'a Narrative Abowt Hovr thm
Flat llssllssssss-sl llosst Went Affronnd
and Mow She Got Safely Back Into
list* Ohio River.
On one occasion a little drummer
boy, securing leave of absence, accompanied a sergeant to a public levee that
"Old Abe" was holding at tho White
House. They went early, aud when
President Lincoln appeared and the
handshaking began they were not long
ln reaching him.
The tall man, almost a giant lu physical proportions, looked down with an
amused smile at the tl«y drummer boy,
who appeared hardly 10 years of age.
Grasping the little fellow's right hand,
the president suddenly reached out his
left, swung tbo boy off his feet aud
set him gently down on a small table
beside him.
"Alia, my little soldier," he said,
laughing, "you shall help 'Uncle Abe'
review this lino today, and If your superior olllcer objects,-why, I'll prolong
your leave of absence!"
Lincoln asked thc boy bis age, place
of residence, regiment and where he
was on duty. Then, ns somo of the
more Important officers of the army or
navy, members of congress or of the
executive departments chanced to pass
In the line, the president would gravely
Introduce his young assistant, wltb
whom they were required to shake
hands as well as with himself.
When the reception was over. President Lincoln took the boy Into his private apartments anil Introduced him to
Mrs. Lincoln. After entertaining him
at luncheon be dismissed him with a
brief note to the eoinuiiiuding officer of
the hospital where he wus then stationed tolling why tlio boy's leave of
absence had boon extended.
Lincoln's geniality and willingness at
nl! times to hear or to tell a gootl story
were conspicuous traits, uot always
agreeable to some of his able but worried and Irritable advisers.
On one occasion a sergeant bad a
squad of men ut work unloading supplies from nn Ohio river steamboat
that In some mysterious manner hnd
made Its way from the Interior to the
coast waters of Vlrgluln. lt was a flat
bottomed boat, drawing not more than
three feet of water when loaded and
hardly dampening its plank bottom
when light. It was propelled by a
horizontal stem wheel, driven by a
small upright engine. Boats of thnt
type were common on the Ohio, which
runs almost dry ot some seasons. Tbey
were known as "Pittsbtirgors" und
were fabled to navigate freely ln a
heavy dew.
The sergeant's men were hard nt
work carrying rations ashore from this
craft when suddenly they Stopped and
sent up a lusty cheer. A little t'ugllUe
steamer had pulled up alongside, aud
from it stepped a tall, awkward mnn
dressed In rusty black nnd wearing n
napless silk bnt. The sergeant recognized the president und saluted.
"Your boat Is well named, sergeant,"
snld the latter gravely.
Thc soldier was puzzled. Ho did not
kuow that the steamer had a name and
said so.
The president took him by tlie arm
and led him back on tlie tug. There
tlie stern of the "I'lttslnirger" loomed
above them,'nnd on Its dirty while surface In tarnished gilt letters a yard
long appeared the single word, Mist.
"Yes," said Lincoln, "It's very well

boy with a sprlnkliug pot to go ahead.
They're great boats, sergeant. Likely
as not this one got here by coming
across country."
President Lincoln repented this ex-
trnvagant story without the ghost of a
smile. During Its recital Secretary
Stanton and Generals Hnlleck and
Sherman—tbe last named having ruu
up the day before from his ninrek
through Hw Cnrollntts—who were with
the party, hnd approached the president. Geuernl Sherninn smiled broadly,

Why Beauty Fades
and Sufferings Come.
Real beauty is rare. It belongs to perfect health. Just
as soon as the blood gets thin and *vatery and the nerves become exhausted beauty fades, wrinkles show themselves, thc
beautiful curves give way to lameness and angles. Nervousness quickly destroys beauty of face and form. The female
organism becomes deranged and there are sufferings almost
unbearable at the monthly periods. Too often women coin-:
to believe these mysterious pains and aches a part of their ex-
istensei They fail to realize that by keeping the blood and
nerves In perfect health they can preserve youth and beauty
and avoid an endless amount of suffering.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, the great blood builder and
nerve restorative, is woman's greatest blessing from youth to
old age. It helps her over thc trying periods of her life ami
prepares the system in every way to perform naturally the duties of womanhood. It enriches the blood supply, keeps the
nerves calm and steady and assists in the development of glowing, healthful beauty. A few weeks' treatment with this .great
Food cure will do wonders for every woman who is pale, thin,
weak and nervous.

When a policeman on Pacific street
came along to where a family was moving out at 10 o'clock at night, he halted
and said to the man who was wrestling
wilh an old bureau:
"You muBt be rushed with business

From tho Sun, Orangeville. Ont.
Ainonij the much respected residents of Orangeville is Mrs. Marshall, who lives in a pretty Utile
cottage on First street. For some
years her twelve-vear-old daughter,
Mamie, has been a sufferer Irom rheu-
mat ism combined with that other
terrible affliction—St. Vitus' danco.
In conversation iccently with a reporter of the Sun, Mrs. Marshall told
the following story of hei daughter's
sulleriie.- and subsequent restoration
to health :—"At ..lie age of eight,"
suys Mr. . Marshall, "Mainio was attacked with rheumatism, from which
she Buffered very much, unu although
she was treated tiy a clover doctssr
her hetilth did not improve. To make
her uuiiilition worse, she was attacked with St. Vitus' dance, ana I really
gave up hope of ever seeing her cn-
jssy good health again. Her arms
and limbs would twitch und jerk
spasmodically and she could scarcely hold a dish in her hand, und had
to be looked after almost like an infant. While Mamie was in this condition a neighbor who hud used Dr.
William-.' Pink i'ilis with beneficial
rs-sults its her sj«n family advised »»
to try them in .Mamie's case I had
myself often heard theso pills highly
spoken of, but. it had not occurred lo
me before that they might cure my
little girl, but now I decided to giv..
them to her. Mefore sho had completed the second box I could see a
marked change for the better, and by
the time she hud .liken libe boxes she
truce of lisith the rheumatism and St.
Vitus' dance had vanished, and she
is now as bright, active and healthy
as any child of l.er ago. Some time
has elapsed since sho discontinued the
use of tlm pills, hut not the slightest
trace of the trouble has since made
itself manifest. I think, therefore,
that 1^ nm safe in saying that I believe Dr. Wilfiams' Fink Fills not
only restored my child to health, but
have worked a permanent cure."
Rheumatism, St. Vitus' dance and
nil kindred diseases of tl. biood and
nerves speedily yield to Dr. Williams'
Pink Fills and the cures thus effected ar - permanent, because this medicine makes rich, red blood strengthens ll s nerves, and thus reaches the
root o' the trouble These pills are
sold by all dealers in medicine or
will b sent post paid at oil cents a
box or six boxes for $2.:">0, by ad-

"and I am willing to say tho author

Mat tine. Que., July 8.—(Special)—
Not only in this neighborhood but
throughout the Province of Quebec
there is a marked decrease noticeable
in the number of cases of liright's
Disease reported. 'Phis fact is undoubtedly duo to the wide usm of
Dodd's Kidney Pills in the earlier
singes of Kidney Disease.
Uriglrl s disease ai one tune wus
the cause of a large proportion of
the deaths in this province. It wus
considered incurable and until Dodd's
Kidney Pills were introduced In wns
incurable. Not so, however, now.
Dodd's Kidney Pills have almost
wiped the disease ont.    Nor is Diu-
bs-tes heard Of now to any great extent.
The most common form by which
Kidney Disease manifests Itself is
Backache, and hen* Dsuld's Kidney
Pills nre tloing their most active
work, Tlu-y are recognised as the
sure*.!, and quickest cure fsir Backache ever invented. Tln-y work ssn
the sound principle of going to tho
rossi.   of   lbs*     trouble—the      Kidneys—
wherein they tliiter from nil other
backache medicines except. Imitations
of   Dodd'S     Kidney   1'ills.       Tliey     do
mors than merely relieve. They positively und permanently sine, as
thousands ol people an- ready to testify.
(). Dionne, a well-known resident
of Muttinc, suys, "Dodd's Kidney
