the budget speech nnd the resultnijt
debate thereon, "Barber" Henderson's
wig bill, tho discovery of two brand
Dew mares'nests by John Oliver and
tho still ponding construction of a
third, and tho first nocturnal sitting
of tho houso this session all these
things combined made the past week
a distinctly lively one iii legislative
circles.
The first excitement took place-dp
the Introduction of the motion of \V.
■I. Bowser, Vancouver, -censuring the
action of the dominion authorities lit
Ottawa inlnterferiug with educational
matters in the Northwest autonomy
bill. After a severe speech on the
Liberal party, the mover of the resolution sat down and the speaker put the
question, the motion carrying without
debate or a division.
Tho estimates were brought down
on Tuesday afternoon and lion. It, (j.
Inflow, minister of finance, delivered
hi** budget speech the same dav. Tlu
speech, like the statement itself, was
a wry plain, unadorned setting-forth
of tin* present financial position ol the
province,without nnv attempt to place
an undue value on future possibilities
or to misrepresent existing fact*.
Throughout the speech was every evi
dence of careful painstaking endeavor,
and of a conscientious and by no
means unsuccessful attempt to do the
verv best with the materials in hand.
The minister's utterances, in short,
woro in a tone ninl of a nature to s'.;,:
further increase  thnt   belief   in their
lability to administer advnutageousl*,
the a i'Tairs of thia proviuce which thi

and outside the [unctions of the legis

the government lias decided, haviug
nothing to conceal, that the investigation shall be as open and public as
were the charges. In this thoy are
right. There is, of course, not a sign
of suspicion against the present chief
commissioner pf lands and works -indeed, much of what Mr. Oliver complain^ of took place belore the present
administration came in— but since the
opposition have made public charges
ngainst the government, it is just as
well to mako ns public an exhibition
of their folly as possible.
The budget  debate was continued
on  Monday afternoon, several members addressing  the  house.   A very
amusing  speech   was   made by Mr,
( Ross, of Feruie, who took the Hue of

FF>rls Humanlte publishers the following letter, which lt states Father
Gapon is sending to the Czar:
"Full of simple faith in you as the
Father of your People, I marched towards you, peacefully accompanied by
the children of your people—as you
must know—as you do know. The Innocent blood of workingmen, of their
wives and of their children of tender
age, will henceforth and forever separate you, their assassin, and the Russian people. Never will the moral tie
between the people and you be renewed.
Tou will no longer be able to curb by
any half-r.ieasure, or even by the promise of the states general, the flood ol
popular feeling now furiously swollen.
Bombs, dyr.amlte, collective and individual terrorism, and popular Insurrection await all the assassins of the people, who have been despoiled of their
rights. I tell you this, and so lt shall
be. Waves of blood such as perhaps
have nowhere else been seen wlll be
poured out on account of you.
"Russia herself wlll, perhaps, perish.
Try to understand lt once for all, and
remember lt. Renounce, then, as soon
as possible, with all your family, the
throne of Russia, and appear before the
tribunal of the Russian people. Have
pity on your children—have pity on the
countries of the empire, you who offered peace to other nations and slaughtered your own."
In a postscript Father Gapon adds:
"Know that this letter is the document
Justifying Incidents of revolution and
terrorism which will not fail to occur
ln Russia."
'The Victory Is  Near  If —."
In an appeal to the Russian people,
Father Gapon congratulates the workingmen on the heroism they have displayed ln beginning the revolution from
which the happiness and liberty of Russia must spring. He bids them not be
discouraged, and not to be taken ln by
the promises of the assassin Czar or his
Ignoble ministers. "The victory," hs
says, " ls near If the Ruslan people
shows a united front without distinction of classes or creeds, or race. Call
to your aid men of action. Have
done with chatterers and occupy yourselves at once with the propaganda and
the organization of armed Insurrection.
Join hands with the soldiers and tha
Cossacks. Despise the Holy Synod,
and do not listen to the priests. Organize fighting battalions of working-
men. Do not give the accursed Government, that band of brigands and assassins of the people, time to collect Its
forces, but shoot the monsters, the
chiefs and the officers of the poller,
governors, gendarmes, generals and officers who give orders to shoot you.
And do not forget armed demonstrations, local Insurrections and strikes.
Know that all measures have been taken ln order that you may have ln time
all sort of arms in sufficient numbers,
including dynamite."
Father Gapon bids the Russian people rise as one man at a signal from
tho committee of defence. "Stop the
life of the cities," he says, "by destroying the water mains, the gas pipes, the
telephone and telegraph wires, the
tramways and railways, the Government buildings and the prisons. But
respect  private  property."
He announces that the plan of the
general Insurrection will be worked out
as soon as possible by the committee
of defence in order to realize the abolition of autocracy, the Institution of a
provisional revolutionary Government
and the Immediate summoning of a
constituent assembly on the basis of
universal suffrage. Victory and vengeance, he says, are near.
He promised to come to Join the
workingmen when the supreme moment
arrives.

health is mainly due to the use of
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"I flrst learned the value of this Kldnoy Remedy some years ago. I was
then suffering from Kidnoy Disease.
My feet and legs swelled and I had to
rise eight or ten times in the night because of urinary troubles. Six boxes
of Dodd's Kidney Pills restored my
health at that time and I have used
them at intervals since.

It Is probable that the epaulet was
originally intended as a protection te

than'as an ornament Ever since 1795
they haya been worn by commissioned
officers ef tbe British navy. According
to tke officer's rank they vary ln design. A sublieutenant wean mly one
composed of gold lace; other ranks two.
The degree of rank is Shown by crowns,
anchors and stars worked ln silver upon the epaulets and also by the thickness of the cord of which they are com-
posed. Previous to the Crimean war
epaulets were worn by both officers
and men of the army. Here, as ln the
navy, distinction was shown both ln
their texture and design. Those of the
officer were made of gold braid, while
with the rank and file they were mere*
ly at worsted.—-London Telearaoh.

TALKATIVE WOMEN.
_ word Ia Favor ot th* Mnoh Abase*
Chatterboxes.
The virtue of silence has often been
overrated, for there are times when
the most reckless of talkers cannot do
ao much harm or wound so cruelly as
the person who holds peace. The old
proverb hath it that "speech is silver
and silence ls golden," but nevertheless
silence ls not always golden. It sometimes partakes of a leaden quality and
descends with crushing force upon an
assembly. Theoretically lt is a quality
that commands tho highest admiration,
but practically lt ls a virtue that ls
sometimes better honored ln the breach
than in the observance, says the Providence Journal.
Thero ls certainly much to be said
for tho woman who chatters as blithely as a canary, and there are many
times when she is to be preferred to
the one who wraps herself ln an awful silence, under whose baneful influence all cheerfulness dies.
Behind the power and knowledge
which make any one capable of enriching social life with reviving conversation must He, as a foundation, the earnest desire to give pleasure independent of what one may receive in return
and a sense of duty regarding those
whom we meet in the world.
The young woman who goea into the
world of society to which circumstances give her the open door wltb
tht capability of Interesting and, rousing a cheerful flow of pleasant conversation has an assurance of enjoyment
wherever sbe appears.

Bureau  Drawers.
To clean bureau drawers begin witb
the top one. Turn everything out, laying aside soiled ribbons or collars or
bits of lace that have passed their days
of usefulness. These can be cleaned or
destroyed after house cleaning days
are over. Preserve them unless they
are hopelessly worn. If worn get rid
of them ln the quickest and easiest
way.
Turn the drawer bottom up and
brush lt out with a broad, soft paint
brush, wipe out with a dampened cloth
nnd then go over It with a cloth wet
with a few drops of alcohol. The drawer is then ready to receive the ribbons,
laces and accessories which one usually finds in that "top drawer." The alcohol dries the drawer and makes lt
possible to replace the articles at once.
The remaining drawers can be cleaned
ln the same way. And when all dresser
and bureau drawers have been gone
over a long step has been taken toward the dreaded house cleaning.

AIRING ONE'S CLOTHES.
It Helye to Keep Them Freak and Ia
Good   Condition.
Do you ever think of airing yout
clothes? No? You think that when you
wear them tbey get aired. So they do,
but not thoroughly and properly as
they ought to. To keep your clothes ln
really good condition you should brush
and shake and air them every little
while. The dress or suit you wear every day should have a dally shaking
and brushing and thorough going over
once a week, says the Pittsburg Pres*
You will be rewarded for your pains,
as your clothes will last much longer
aud look much better. If it ls wool 01
dark material tbe dust gets ground in,
and very soon the whole dress bns a
rusty appearance that with a little
pains and care you might have avoided.
Pressing is a great renovator, and
skirts particularly need lt once ln
awhile as they get hard wear and nre
apt to be pulled out of shape and get
knee holes, which certainly are not
pretty. There is another advantage
about airing your clothes that is most
important. It keeps them fresh and
clean. Nothing ls more uisagrecable
than an odor of cooking or stale perfume on any one's clothes. To be
fresh and clean and neat ls the way to
be always attractive, and every girl
can be and should be all three.

A SPRING TONIC.
80METHINQ   THAT   WILL   MAKE
RICH, RED BLOOD AND DRIVE
OUT DISEASE.
All physicians are agreed that every.
one needs a new supply of new blood
ln the spring. The reason Is plain-
close confinement In over-heated, im-
perfectly ventilated homes and work
places, have clogged the blood with
impurities. The liver is sluggish; the
kidneys fail to perform their work
properly. The impure blood is shown
ln a score of ways. You may only feel
a little tired, or easily depressed, but
these are mere symptoms from which
more serious trouble will follow in
other cases Impure blood makes Itself
manifest ln pimples and disfiguring
eruptions, occasional headaches, a variable appetite, attacks of indigestion
or rheumatism, pains in the back and
loins. But whatever the trouble, there
is only one sure way to get rid of it
and that ls through the rich, red, new
blood which comes from the use of Dr
William's Pink Pills. Every pill yoij
take makes new, rich blood, braces the
nerves, overcomes all weakness, drives
the germs of disease from the body
and gives you vim and energy to resist
the torrid heat of the coming summer.
Mr. Charles Saulnler, Corberrle, N. S.,
says:—"I was very much run down,'
and so weak I could hardly work, it
seemed as though my blood was little
better than water. I tried several
medicines, but got nothing to help ra9
until I began taking Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills It was simply astonishing
how quickly these pills began to help
me, and now much new life and vigor
they put Into me. They have made
me as sound as I ever was."
Good blood ls the secret of health
and strength. The secret of good
blood is Dr. Williams' Pink Fills.
These pills do not act upon tho bowels—their whole mission ls to make
new rich, health-giving blood, wliich
strengthens every organ, and every
nerve and drives disease from the
body. Don't take anything but the
genuine pills, which have the full
name "Dr Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People" printed on the wrapper
around each box. If in doubt, write
The Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont., and the pills will bo sent

medicine chest, but Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil, which is a medicine chest
in itself being a remedy for rheumatism, lumbago, sore throat, colds,
coughs, catarrh, asthma and a potent
healer for wounds, cuts, bruises,
sprains, etc., is within the reach of the
poorest, owing to its cheapness. It
should be in every home.

liness, lhat characterizes the general
it)- of western newspaper men. Mr.
Stewart lacks that Bohemian buoyancy
which is the hall-mark of many of his
fellow-workers. He abjures the "wild
and woolly westerners." He ls sound
and sane, thoughtful and earnest. In
the northernmost frontier town of tho
prairie section of the Dominion he has
farm. The life of a pioneer on a home
stead, however, proved uncongenial.
The smell of printers' Ink called him
to the newspaper office as irresistibly
as that of the sea does the sailor to
his ship. Mr. Stewart struck out for
the Western States working in the
principal offices in Helena, Anaconda,
Spokane, Tacoma. Seattle, and tho
State printing office at Olympia. In
these he gained Invaluable experience

In the Canadian Wist have had a more
complete mechanical training and experience than Mr. Stewart
conservatively progressive. To pick
up a copy of the Advocate—not merely
now, when I'rince Albert ls one of the
most Important cities of the West, but
for years past, when lt was popularly
regarded as hanging on to the outside
edge of civilization—none would ever
think, either by its makeup, by its editorial opinions, or by Its news columns
that It wa.s published in a town that
was the farthest Canadian limit of
agricultural effort. Indeed, if the Imprint was not noticed, the general Impression would be that the Advocate
Mr. Stewart went to Prince Albert
in 1V*4 to take charge of he newly organized paper and after a few
months was so satisfied with its

conducted ever since. From a very

Houston, Tex.—Twenty-eight Texas
convicts on the plantation of J. B. S.
House, of Houston, have escaped by
sawing through the floor of the stock-
WS with case knives. Forty-five'convicts refused to accompany the fugitive,';. Possees are scouring the river
bottoms for the runaways. The plantation is in Fort Bead county. There
Is considerable alarir among the people living ln the country through
winch the fugitives would have to pass
to reach Houston or to get away and
the citizens have remained In their
homes with their dogs and guns to
protect the women and children.
DROWSINESS AFTER MEALS
A Persistent Symptom of Nervous Dyspepsia—Cure
is  Obtained by Use of
DR. CHASE'S  NERVE FOOD.
Signals of Danger.—Have you lost
your appetite? Have you a coated
toiiKtie? Have you an unpleasant taste
in the mouth? Does your head ache
an.l have you dizziness? If so, your
stomach ls out of order and you need
medicine. But you do not like medicine. He that prefers sickness to
medicine must suffer but under the
circumstances the wise man would
Procure a box of Parmelee's Vegetable
Pills and speedily get himself in health
and srive to keep so.
He — I'd like to take your photograph, Edle. Really, youro sweet
enough to eat! She—I see—and that's
why you want to me on a plate.

"Not audibly, miss," said the man at
the other end of he wir; "but I con*
fess that as a long distance mind-reader you are an expert."
Many Inherit weak lungs, and as disease usually assails the weakest point,
these persons are continually exposed
to attacks of cold and pulmonary disturbances. The speedy use of Bickle's
Anti Consumptive Syrup will be found
a preventive and a protection, strengthening tbe organs so that they are not
so liable to derangement from exposure or abrupt atmospheric changes.
Bickle's Syrup is cheap and good.
Conjurer—You have seen me put
tbo marked shilling in this hat. I now
ask our friend over there with the red
nose to fish it out of his pocket. Our
friend (rising)—I didn't know you
wanted the whole shilling back After
you handed it to me this morning I had
to use a sixpence, but here's the
change.
Many a sufferer from chronic dyB*
pepsia dates his ailment from the time
he began  to  feel  "drowsiness  after
meals."
The blood is weak, and there Is not
sufficient nerve force to carry on the
work of digestion and supply the vital
force required for mental and physical activity.
Headache, dizzy spells, defective
memory, inability to concentrate the
mind, brain fag, irritability of temper,
nervousness and sleeplessness are the
resulting symptoms.
Owing to defective digestion the
body is not deriving proper nourishment from the food, and some other
method of obtaining strength must be
employed.
In Dr. Ch.^se's Nerve Food the most
effective of i blood-building and nerve-
restoring elements of nature are contained in condensed form so as to be
easily taken Into the blood.
Under this treatment you soon find
that the appetite is sharpened, digestion improved, and the vitality of mind
and body greatly Increased.
It takes time to thoroughly cure dyspepsia and its accompanying symptoms, but you can be certain that each
dose of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is ot
some benefit to you, and that the cure
will be complete and lasting.
Mr. J. A. Gibbs, 86 Tom street, Hamilton, Ont., writes:—"My principal
trouble was indigestion, and as a result my appetite was poor and I waa
quite nervous. Frequently ln the
morning severe dizzy spells would
come over me and in many ways I felt
that I was not at all well. The use ot
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has changed
all this and my digestion is now such
that 1 can eat almost anything. My)
appetite is good, my nervous system
seems to be stronger and I do not
know what it is to bave the spells of
weakness and dizziness come over me.
I can strongly recommend Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food."

The Woman who Would
tko Grocer who wouldn't.
Every day from five to fifteen letters are received by
The Ogilvie Flour Mills Co. from women living in the
smaller1 towns throughout Canada, saying they have asked
their grocer for Royal Household Flour but can't get it'
One writes—"I told my grocer, Mr.—, that I would buy
'Royal Household' regularly if he would always keep it
on hand, but he said he wouldn't take on another brand of
flour until he was obliged to." Another says—"My grocer
is an 'old fogie' and never gets the newest or the best
things until the year after." A third says—"We haven't
an enterprising grocer in our town and are obliged to send
to for 'Royal Household' or take a poorer flour."
Write diredl to Ogilvie's.
If you can't get "Royal Household" from your grocer,
write to us direct—we will immediately give you the name
of thc nearest grocer who keeps "Royal Household" and
send you also the "Royal Household" recipes. There is no
good reason why your grocer should compel you to u.so
inferior flour—no first class grocer will hesitate to order
"Royal Household" for you, and even the smallest dealer
will get it if you insist upon it.

When they get time to think it over,
Hawthointhwaite mid his pals mH.it
feel kind of sick at the way in which
nil their pet legislation was sacrificed
at the sudden prorogation of the local
house on Saturday night. They served their purpose during the session
and now the horse laugh is on them.
Frank Oliver, member for Edmonton, and not Walter Scott,is the newspaper man who has succeeded Clifford
Sifton as minister of the interior for
the dominion. Prank may not have
much polish in his manner of speech,
but he is possessed of two strong factors for the position —marked ability
and undoubted popularity.
The Victoria Colonist manifests its
loyalty to Conservative principles by
again traitorously abusiug the provincial party. Dunsinuir got mad because the legislature figured upon
adopting au eight hour day-bank to
bank—for coal miners. The Colonist
never could view a question beyond
the Victoria and other local interests
involved.
Manager Campbell, of the Nelson
smelter, says arrangements have lx?rn
made whereby the leud stacks at his
works" will be kept running. It is
simply a question of rates, aud if the
smelters ate agreeable they can get
the ores. It must have struck the
local smelters #s a dark reflection on
them that Kootenay mines could obtain larger profits by shipping their
ores to Europe. The local smelter
poople have the plan of salvation in
their own ham a.
It is gradually being borne in upon
the minds of the peopje of tho camp
that they are overlooking the advantages of the lands around Slocan lako
and in the valleys for fruit raising
purposes. It is a mistake to think
there aro no vacant lands, for there
are thousands of acres that may be
procured either from the railway company or government. All of it is more
or less timbered, but it can be easily
cleared, and almost everywhere mountain streams are available for irrigation, if need be. The soil is adapted
to various kiuds of fruit, while the climatic conditions are as favorable as
those around Kootenay lake. With
mining at such a low ebb, people are
forced to turn their attention to other
occupations for a living, and none can
be found more profitable than that of
fruit raising. Homeseekers looking
for lands favored with au ideal climate, and who are uot afraid of tackling
timber, cau secure a good choice in
and around Slocan lake.
A new political sensation was
spruugon the Canadian public last
•weok, tending furthor to complicate
the vexatious school question in the
west, and adding fuel to the factional
religious feud that is always more or
less alive throughout the dominion,
Hon. Messrs. Rogers and Campl>cll,of
the Manitoba government, were in
Ottawa some time sinco endeavoring
.to have the boundaries of their province enlarged. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
asked for a postponement of the conference, when Monsigneur Sbarretti,
the papal delegate to Canada, butted
in ou tbe question, so the Mauitobans
allege, and told them they could get
what they wanted if Manitoba would
only amend its laws and grant separate schools to the Roman Catholics.
Rogers and Campbell have published
their side of the story and Laurier and
Sbarretti have countered, all combining to make one of the most sensational episodes the public has yet ex
perienced. Tho Manitoba government
wants to appeal to the country, bul
they can't get dissolution, so matters
are getting warm. One thing is cit
.tain, however, Canadians will DOi
brook interference iu their affairs by
/outsiders.

and Chinese into their mill last weok.
to replace their white gang, bringing
the Asiatics from the coast. The attempt was unsuccessful, as the populace would not stand for it, a number
of men coming down also from Ymir
to repel the invaders. On Tuesday
Chief of Provincial Police Bullock-
Webster took up some specials from
Nelson and escorted the Asiatics back
to Salmo. There was much excitement, but no trouble eventuated.

here; several netv families would locate iu town and all tho business of
the coucaru handled from this point.

in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his

one road to success;
neglect of it invariably

merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
