he broke off in a voice of thunder.
"Yes, Edward, of course I am listening," said Mary with a violent start
"Then what do you want to look like
that for! Do you want to make me
think yon're pining because I am going f Bah! You're enough to sicken a
man, you whito faced cat"
Tbe girl's first instinct was to start
to her feet Her fingers almost without
ber own will clinched themselves to-
"Edward, don't aay "hat/" the besjran
nervo uiAy.
gether, her cheeks -were as red as peo
niea until, in her anger at such an insult, they faded to the paleness of
death. Then she remembered her moth
er, the frail, weak, feeble soul who persisted in calling Captain Conway her
dear boy and in attributing to him
every noble and generous attribute tbat
could by any chance be found in ths
character of any man, and her instinct
waa to bide it, to smooth things over,
to—to go on living tbe life as she bad
begun.
"Edward, don't say that I" she began
nervously "Yon will frighten my
mother."
"And if I dot" he cried roughly
"It's always mother here, mother there.
What do I care whether she's frightened or not?"
"Yon frighten mo!" Mary gasped,
and in truth sbe was shaking in every
limb, shaking liko an aspen leaf ln a
storm.
"I'm glad of tbat It's a relief to
find I can make you feel something
Wbat did you marry me for?"
"You wanted me to marry you." she
■aid unsteadily.
"I wanted yon I I—I— Yes, and you
laid yourself out to please me"—
"My Ood, no!" abe died sharply,
forgetting for a moment her policy of
conciliation. And then—I don't like to
write It; I don't like to think of it-
then there was a blow—a fall—and
dead silence, only broken by tbe deep
drawn, gasjUng sobs of an outraged and
broken hearted woman.
For a moment ho aaid nothing. Then
ho r-eoucd to poll himself together, and
be put out bis hand to help her. "1
didn't mean to do that," he said
shamefacedly. "I ought not to have
done it You drew it on yourself, Mary,
but I'm sorry.  Kiss mo nnd befriends.'
She put his hand aside and rose to
her feet without aid. and there thoy
Stood facing each otber, ho flushed and
ashamed, alio with tho mark of hia bund
npon her faca
"You strnek me!" she said Pt Irst
Her whole face and being were changed
From a pnsBive martyr sho hail become
an nccntdng spirit. "Yon—strnek—

cutting through the air. The man
shrank a little as be heard.
"I forgot myself." he muttered snl
lenly.     "I  admit  it      I want  to be
friends "
Tho girl's gray eyes were fixed npon
him and seemed to look into his very
soul. "You told me yon would teach
me to love you." she Biiid with intense
scorn. "Yonr wny is rongh and ready
I congratulnto yon upon your success.'
"Mary," he burst out. "You never
did care—you've cheuted me"—
"Cnro—I?" she echoed "/Yon are
strong for a man—I am not even strong
for a girl, for all uiy life has been passed in sitting at a desk. Yon may kill

I shall not mind, for at least it will

will tell you on* thing I have hated
myself for not caring. I have never
ceased to reproach myself for bavin;*
loathed you. Now, with all my heart, I
thank God for it."
CHAPTER III
BER LAST WORD.
When Mary Conway uttered those
scathing words, "I have nev.?r censed
to reproach myself for having loathed
you. Now, with all my heart, I thank
God for it," they were followed by a
long, dead silenca She, slight and frail
and ashen white, stood boldly fronting
him, her eyes filled with intensest
scorn and showing no shred of tbe fear
with which her heart was qnaking; he,
divided between rage and astonishment, just touched with shame that he
snoniti have raised Iiis hand to a woman,
and tbat woman his yonng wife. So
they stood nntil nt last he fonud words
with whieh tw speak.
"So you loathe me, do you ?"
An older or a wiser woman might
have given a softer answer than leaped
to Mary Conway's lips in reply. "Yes,"
she said harshly. "Only loathing is too
mild a word."
"But you married me! Yon were
willing enough to marry me!" he said,
gnawing at his nnderlip viciously.
"Willing! Never!" she flashed out
"I married yon, it is true, with feelings of gratitude, with a desire to do
my best to repay you for the money you
had laid out, with a belief that you
were kind and good if uot the lover of
my heart nor the husband of my imagination. I have learned since that there
was no need of gratitude from me to
you; that there was no kindness or
goodness in tbe help you gave during
my mother's illness; that every day the
nurse remained, every drop of wine
my mother dran'v. every strawberry
she ate, was entered into an account
which I was to pay one day with my
very heart's blood. Well, you have had
your pound of flesh, you have bought
your wife, and the bargain is complete,
the debt all paid. Today yon bave
broken every bond, every link, every
chain, between us I bear your name:
that's all."
"Is tbat your last word, Mary?'
"Yes, my last word. No, I am not
afraid of you. My poor little frail body
is afraid, horribly, desperately afraid
of you. but my heart and eoul and all
that's beat of me—never—never—
never!"
"You'll be glad when I'm gone?'
"Thankful"
"You'll never remember anything of
what I did for you?"
"I shall always remember you as the
man who struck me."
"You'd like to be free of me?'
She drew a deep breath more signlfl-
imnt than words He laughed aloud, a
laugh void of merriment, such as one
might hear from the fiends in hell
"You'd like me to provide for yon
perhaps? To make you a suitable allowance and clear out myself, eh ? To leave
you and your old mother"—
"Leave my mother out ssf it!" sfaa
cried fiercely.
"Ob, I've no wish to say anything
against hert" bo retorted. "To do her
till justice, she's always been appreciative enough of me, a thundering deal
more so than yon have Still sbo'a thora
She's got to be reckoned with, to be
provided for, and you'd like to see her
end her days in comfort"
"I waa satisfied enough with my life
before you cntiio and made her dissatis*
fiod with the provision that I was abls
to make for her. Yon took away ray
living. It is but right that yon should
provide for both. You did nothing with
your eyes shut."
"Nor you. Well*— I do provide for
you both—I shnll continue to do so.
But there's a side to my part of tbe
bargain. I didn't look to provido for a
wife, to say nothing of ber mother, and
to keep away from her, and I won't do
It You've no witness that I struck
you. And it wouldn't sound a likely
story anyhow. I'll go away today Instead of Monday, for I'm sore and angry
and not master ef myself, and neither
aro you. But I shall come back again.
I shull come home again, and you'll receive me as if nothing bad happened
between us I'm sorry I forgot myself
jnst now. and for that reason I'll give-
yon till I come home again to pull yourself togeibor in, and after that we will
begin again oa if nothing had happened."
"I shall never begin again as if nothing   had   huDiieiicd."   she oxclaimod
passionately. "How could I? Yon
struck ma So Ion-* as you were only old
nnd rough and—und—distasteful to me,
I endured you. But you have gono beyond"—
"Yon took me for hotter or worse."
he interrupted.
"I know it, bat I did not bargain for
its being all for worse."
"We'll see about thnt," be said, with
• sneer. "It'a easy work talking of
Wliat one will or one won't do. You've
left yourself in a cleft stick, my fine
little lady wife, and I think when you
come to facing the world from the very
bottom of the ladder with your invalid
mother, who has got used to a comfortable way of living, you'll find it harder
than you think for. It's one thing to
talk large about breaking loose, and it's
another thing to do it with your handicap tied round your neck. Anyway,
that's my last word. I've made up my
mind. It's a cose of my will giving way
to yours or yours breaking down to
mine. I don't intend if there's any
breaking down that it shall be on my
side."
Ho did not give her time to reply, but
went out of the room with a great bustle, nnd the next moment she beard him
giving directions to tha servants about
his baggage. A few minutes afterward
she heard him go out of the house, and
then came the sound of her mother's
voice calling to her. N
"Mary, Mary, where are you ?'
"Here, mother Do you want anything?"
She ran down into the bright little
entrance hall, to find her mother, who
still dragged one leg a little, holding on
to the doorpost of the drawing room.
"My poor child! My poor, darling
ohildl What terrible news!" iho ex-
cjiimed. She was smartly nnd d**'t>tl]y
dressed and looked very prstty as she
stood ther*
"What terrible news?" asked Mary.
For a moment her heart stood still, for
she thought that her husband had blurted out all the truth ln his anger.
"What news?" echoed Mrs. Hamilton. "Why, that dear Edward has had
a telegram which will take him away
from us today instead of next weak.
Try to bear up, my poor darling I"
"Yea, I will try, mother," said Mary,
feeling almost ready to let herself go off
into wild shrieks of hysterical laughter
at the irouv of thu ait nation
"In the first flush of yonr married
happiness, too." Mrs. Hamilton said
mournfully as she dragged slowly back
again to ber sent by the window. "Of
course duty is duty, aa I said to tbe
dear fellow."
"And wbat did he say to  that?'
Mary asked the question involuntarily.
"Oh. he is always so full of his
quaint, bluff humor!" replied Mrs.
Hamilton, smiling tenderly at the recollection. " 'It's no use keeping a mill
to turn, mother,' he said in his hearty
way, 'unless one finds grist to put in
it' Dear fellow I"
Mary sat down at the other side of
tbe window and got out her embroidery
from tbe smart workbasket Mrs. Hamilton looked at her with astonished eyes,
first at her and then at the bit of dainty
work in her hands
"Are you not going ta help Moun-
cey ?'' she asked. It was a point of honor
with Mrs. Hamilton that Mary's maids
should be called by their surnames, although both of them detested the custom.
"No, mother. Mouncey has all instructions from Edward."
For a moment Mrs Hamilton kept
silent But at last she burst out impulsively. "You are very strange, Mary I'
she cried "When your poor father was
going away, I always arranged every
little detail for him with my own hands,
but you sit there as coldly as if you had
been married 20 years instead of this
being your first parting with yonr husband, little more than a bridegroom."
It must be owned that tbe girl felt a
thrill of disgust go through ber at her
mother's words. A wild prayer half
formed itself in her heart that this first
parting might be the last, and an alluring picture of a quiet grave, with the
inscription "Mary Conway, aged 23,'
on the headstone, slipped sweetly
through her mind. She even smiled,
heartsick as she waa aa she answered
ber mother's plaintive and wondering
Words
"Ah, but you see it was different
with you, mother; you married for love I
Edward doesn't keep me to pack bis
things for him. Mouncey will do it better than I."
"It is most strange," said Mrs. Hamilton, "but of course we express our
feelings ao differently. Yon aro so like
your poor father and not in the least
like mo. He was always so quiet and
reserved—Just as yon are."
"One cannot help one's nature," said
Mary, trying to speak with indifference.
"And of course we have known all along
that Edward would have to be away a
good deal A few days more or less
make little difference "
"Ah, well, it is all for tbo host that
you do take things like that!" said Mrs
Hamilton, distinct reproach in her
tones. "I should never have done for a
sailor's wife; I should have broken my
heart every time he went away."
"God tempers the wind to tbe shorn
lamb," said Mary.
She felt that the remark was flippant,
even unfeeling, and yet tho effort which
she was putting upon herself was ao
great that it was only by the must so-
vcre dotorminatlon that she was ablo to
keep herself calm. The thrill of compunction was, however, thrown away,
(or Mra. Hamilton's shallow mind was
not capable of taking in two ideas at
tbe same tima
"Ah, yes, truer words were nover
spoken!" she remarked. "I often wonder what I shonld have dono if Providence hnd not sent dear Edward onr
way. I shuddor to think what my life
would hnvo liecn, ill aud ahum all dny
In that miserable little houso in that
dreary, sordid neighborhood."
"1 should have mado other arrangements    I should  have dono my boat,'
lid Mary a littlo Indignantly.
"*es, nariing child, I know yon
Would." Mrs. Hamilton returned in un
indignant tone, as onu might speak to u
feeble person who bud tried to stem tho
river of life and hud failed utterly.
"Bnt mercifully—and truly the ways
of Providence ure wonderful; I feel it
more and more every duy that I live
—mercifully God did think fit to temper
the wind to the shorn Iamb, or the
shorn sheep, aa one might say in my
case Mary, what have you done to
yourfaco?" She asked the Inst question
in a totally different voice Mra Hamilton was always two people at one and
the same time—the artificial fine lady,
who wus given to preaching little t-er-
monettes all in platitndes. and the shallow, self centered person, with a keen
eye to the main chance of No. 1
Mary started at the direct question
She was accustomed to hearing her
mother babble aimlessly on from subject to subject, but a change of tone
u) ways called for attention. "My face?'
she said slowly, putting up her baud to
the red mark.    "Oh, it got knocked!"
For half a word she would bave burst
out with the whole story, but in ber
sudden upward glance she bad noted
Mra Hamilton's serene, well satisfied
expression, tbe look of care and attention which pervaded her whole person,
her smart gown, her dainty little coquettish cap. All these things meant
money All theso little details were as
the breath of life to the shallow and
narrow soul who had never before
known what it was to revel in a fairly
good incoma As the conviction came
home to her Mary's heart failed or her
better nature prevailed, so that she kept
tbe truth to herself.
"It got knocked." she said evasively,
and Mrs. Hamilton was satisfied. She
went into a long dissertation of how she
nss'-e had run against a closet door in
the dark and of how "your poor father'
said that her face looked exactly as if
some one had struck her, and in the
midst of this Mary suddenly remembered something that would carry her
up stairs, and once in the shelter of her
own room she '.ought with her pain
and misery—aye. as desperately as any
martyr fought Witn bensta of old in the
amphitheater of crnel Rome.
It was hard work, hard work, this
martyrdom of hers, a voluntary sacrifice for a mother Incapable of appreci-
•.tinf a nature finer than her own; it
svas uounity tnro**rn away, consideration for one who never considered any
one but herself Some glimmering—and
it was only a ,?' .ramoriiig, for our
knowledge of r.anres with which we
have grown up cones but slowly and
tremblinglv — cause to her wben sho had
calmed herself noi forced herself to go
down again to th<i pretty drawing room
which waa par*, of her prison.
"Frozen, per darling," she heard
her mother say, "quite frozen. Be very
tender with her, dear boy; she has a
highly sensitive nature and fecjs things
terribly. Those who can sob and cry
get off very easily in this life, my dear
Edward, bnt it is the quiet, undemonstrative o who feel. My poor darling!
My heart     ~.es for her."
CHAPTER IV.
PAUTKD.
The actual parting between Captain
Con ..." and Mu»y was got over more
easily than she bad feared. She had
bosii afraid that Mrs. Hamilton would
be present to tbe last moment and that
sbe wonld inevitably discover at least
something of lhe true state of affairs
between them. Fortunately, however.
Mrs Hamilton was dominated by a
keen desire to spare herself any needless
excitement, ao that she ensconced herself in ber favorite chair in the drawing room wind iw and bade farewell to
her son-ir- sw iu that place
"Go to the gate to see tbe last of the
master." sbe ••aid to the two servants.
"Mrs. Co..way is feeling the parting
terribly, and it will be less hard for hor
if sbe has no ono to look on."
The two girl-* w.*re not a little skeptical as to tbo depth of tbeir young
mistress' woe, tut tbey fell in with
cheerful obedience to the wishes of
"missis' mother" ard went off to thu
front gate, leaving the husband and
wife to port withou* onlookers.
What actually took place was this
Captain Conway went into the drawing
room to say goodby to Mrs. Hamilton,
enduring her tears and clinging embraces like a true Briton. "I'll take
care of her, dear boy," she whispered
brokenly.  "My poor, poor child!"
"Goodby, mother," he said, briefly
"I haven't a minut**-1 to spare.  Goodby
Take care of yourself."   And then he
went ont of tho room, closing tho door
behind blm.
"Well, goodby, Mary," ho said, holding out his hand to his wife
"""Goodby," said Mary, withont looking at him.
"You haven't changed your mind
yet?" be asked.
"Not in tbe least"
For a moment ho said nothing. "You
littlo devil," ho hissed at last between
his teeth, "you're prottior and more
fetching than ever!" He caught hold of
ber and held her closely to him. "Do
you think you are going to keep mo at
arm's length forever? Not a bit of it! I
lovo you ten thousand times more for
being such a little dovil as yon arc. All
the other women I've over known are ua

illisikssl lo Use Westell! l'tisitscr.
Tlio following letter, of deep interest to tho settlers of Manitoba ami
the Northwest Territories, appears in
tho last issue of the Nor'-West Farmer :
"It is probably no exaggeration to
say that Alberta, from Cardslon to
Edmonton is filling up moro rapidly
than any other section of tho Northwest. A great many settlers from
tho United States, possessing both
capital and experience, aro coming in;
and aa the best of tlio free homestead
lands south of the lino are about exhausted, there is every reason to believe that this movement from the
States is destined to grow at a constantly accelerated rate. Tlio Americans come hero in order to obtain
cheap land ; they sell their fuinis in
the Western States for 830 or i"40 an
acre and buy largo blocks here for
$8. lt is a good stroke of business
for farmers with big families.
"Obviously, however, the future
well-being of these people, with the
growth of the migration turns upon
tlniir ability to obtain a profitable
market for their pro-ducts. The market of Southern llritiali Columbia.,
with its gold and silver mines, absorbs a great deal of tho beef, buy,
oats, poultry, eggs. Hour, otc, raised on this side of tlio Rockies; indeed, but for thn development which
has taken place there Wo should
hardly havo witnessed the rapid settlement now going on in Alberta.
"1 am not a protectionist, but a
free trailer in principle, nevertheless
I think that henceforth the Dominion
Parliament should take eVury reasonable precautions to preserve the British Columbia market to Canadians.
Wu cannot hope for profitable fanning in these parts without it ; and
it is a platitude to way that if farming does not pay, wo need not look
for immigrants from the United
States or anywhere else. Permit me
to state tlie case as 1 find it in the
Trade and Navigation returns of lust
year.
"The foreign goods entered for
consumption in British Columbia
amounted to $10,300,000, of which
no less than S6,40O,0OO worth tamo
from the United States. Thc American bread-stuffs imported amounted
in value to $1(55,000; eggs, $57,000;
hay, $54,000; bacon ami hams, $3:27,-
000; poultry, $10,000; canned meats,
$40,000; potatoes, $23,000; tomatoes and other vegetables, $«0,000 ;
horses, $45,000; sheep., 106,000, an,l
so on. Tho imports of bread-stuffs
included Hour, $58,000 ; bran mid
feed, $50,000; oats, $12,000; |sea.s
ond bs*ans. $15,01X1; wheat, $14,000.
All told, the agricultural products
iinril live animals with meats Imported from the United States amounted
in value to very nearly $1,000,000.
"Aa you are aware, farm prod nets
raisesl on this side of tho boundary
are practically shut out of the United States. Their specific ami nd valorem duties are higher by a good
ileal than ours, and, what is mure,
the valuation upon which their ml
valorem duties are levied is usually
excessive. The Ounadinn duties were
framied on the basis of prices in the
older provinces. For example, the
duty of $2 per ton on hay amounts
to something in tho oast, where the
price of hny Is $10 or $12. but it
amounts Io little In British Columbia whore hay coming from Idaho
and Washington ssills at the mine*
for $20 or $iM per ton. The Unit.'d
Stntes duty on hoy is $4.
"Again, the Canadian duty of 3
rents per dozen on eggs looks big
in tlie older provinces, where the farmer gets 10 or 12 cents for them.
On the other hand, It cuts no figure
to spefedc Of in Southern British Columbia, where, eggs frequently sell for
110 cents. The United States duly on
eggs is 5 cents. Where ad valorem
duties are imposed by us tho customs valuation approximates to the
fair market value, but tho American
customs, on tho Montana frontier al
any rule, places a valuo on our stuff
which can only bo characterized as
exorbitant. I know a case where
Canadian vegetables going into Montana were valued nt 75 per cent in
excess of the current market price
at Mucleod and I'ineher, so that, the
duty became prohibitory Tho Canadian duty on potato-.*. Ir 15 cents

"1 am not advocating reciprocal,
of tariffs, which would be us absurd

DIED ALL ALONE.
Winnipeg, July 20,,-Alono and tm-
cured for, Thomas Winters, an old
resident of this city, died iu his humble abode on Prim-ess street on
Thursday night. Ho was found dead
iu bed yesterday morning. Heart
failure is believed to havo been the
cause.
Coroner Benson was called in, but
it is scarcely likely ho will demand
an inquest.
The deceased was lately in the gen-
erul hospital, and was discharged as
cured. He was subject to heart failure, and that, no doubt, caused bis
death. The Veterans' association, of
which deceased was a member, will
have charge of the funeral.
The old man evidently knew his
end was at hand, for attached to the
fence post at his residence was found
a note written ns follows ; "Will
some ono kindly tell the police that
an old man lias died here." Beside
the note was a small piece of crape.

GREEN SICKNESS
OR CHLOROSIS
Just atthe threshold of Womanhood, that trying; period
when the whole system is undergoing a complete change, many
a girl falls a victim to Chlorosis or Green Sickness. Her disposition changes and she becomes morose, despondent and
melancholy. The appetite is changeable, digestion imperfect
and weariness and fatigue are experienced on the slightest exertion. Blondes become pallid, waxy and puffy ; brunettes
become muddy and grayish in color, with bluish black rings
under the eyes.

HIZZLES FOft JUDGES
SIMPLE WORDSTHAT HAVE TANGLED
UP ENGLISH COURTS.
Stsnie Terms of Almost Everyday
I tie That I'rovcsl to lie Too Pro-
fonnd Por the Intelligence of the
Learned Bench and Onr.
In a case that enme before a famous
lord Justice some time ngo/he counsel
for the prosecution !n tbe evidence bad
to mention 11 "blouse."
The judge nsked what a blouse was,
nnd II was explained that this was part
of a lady's dress. But ihe case came to
a dead stop for the time, for tbe Judge
did not know which part, and afler
some hesitation tho barrister admitted
that he wasn't sure. Several learned
brothers gave their opinion, some opining a blouse was the upper bnlf of a
lady's costume, while others Insisted It
must be the lower half. The entire
court, filled with learned celebrities
whose heads held all the laws of Britain, from pitch and toss to manslaughter, argued It out, bnt nobody was sure.
The Judge thought It was the lower
half, but a junior barrister who had
lately been mnrrled snld he thought
tluit that Ik/11' wns culled a skirt, but
did not feel certain. At length a lady
wns called, who set the court right
Another odd dilemma happened not
long ngo when In the Ilobson "horse
faking" case the word "fetlock" arose.
A fetlock, aa everybody knows, Is the
ankle of a horse. The court nsked
what It was, however, nnd the prosecuting counsel was nonplused. Tbe
witnesses were out of court save one,
and he knew nothing. The Judge
thought a fetlock wns a sort of bind
knee, otherwise "hock." but one learned brother wns quite certain It was tbe
lock of hnlr that hangs over a horse's
forehead. The defendant's solicitor
opined It wns that part of the harness
Which slips over the tall, tbe cropper,
nnd another legal celebrity agreed with
tlu* J IK*! go. Finally the court hnd to call
a stable groom to clear up the mystery.
In n ense lhat was settled some years
alnce the recorder was brought np
short by a phrase used by the counsel
for defense, wbo spoke of a transaction
concerning n pound of "blncklead."
This Is a common and useful article,
but the counsel on being nsked to explain Its nature said It was a black
Imbalance used for boot polishing. The
recorder thought It wns a mineral used
In lead pencils, but another barrister
asserted It to be n "tough kind of lend
used for roofing houses." The case was
brought to a standstill, nnd one lawyer,
unsurpassed In legal knowledge, declared that blncklead was a slang term
for pig Iron as produced In tbe north
country. A fourth expounder of the
law vaguely suggested it wns tho opposite of white lend, and finally a domestic servant put the court right, and
the assembly nt last learned thnt It was
used for blacking stoves.
Another dilemma wns produced a little while ngo on the western circuit by
the Introduction of the words "dry
nurse" in nn address to the court. This
bewildered the Judge, who asked If a
dry nurse wns u nurse who dried babies nfter they had been washed. That
solution did not occur lo the learned
counsel, who, nfter some besltntlon,
said he thought It mennt a nurse who
wns not nddlcted to drinking nnd therefore mow"- suitable to look nfter lufants.
Nobody Boomed to know whnt the term
renlly mennt, 1 hough several more
guesses were made, the last of them
that a dry nurse wns one who could
not n muse children.
The court wns agnln nonplused by a
statement made that somebody concerned In the case supposed to suffer
from melancholia was really "ns Jolly
as ti sandboy." The Judge wanted to
know whnt a sandboy wns In order to
form some Idea ns to the exact degree
of Jollity Involved. The counsel could
not tell him. though one suggested It
wns a boy who Banded Ihe roads nnd
the other thought It might be a lad
building sand enstles on the seashore.
The whole court stopped to discuss
whnt a sandboy wns nnd why he wns
Jolly, but they could not solve the problem.
It Is hardly believable that nnybody
should not know what a "snaffle" Is.
but n London magistrate recently desired to be Informed, nnd nobody could
tell him whnt n snaffle might be. A
solicitor thought It wns the same thing
ns Ilie "curb," nud the clerk hnd nn
Idea It wns n kind of cold In the head

A RACINE MAN   EXPRESSES HIMSELF STRONGLY FOR DODD'S
KIDNEY PILLS.
His letter Is Typical of Hundreds
Lately Received From Lower Province—Samo Work Being Done All
Over the Dominion—Dodd's Kidney Pills Stand Alone in the Conquest of Kidney Disease.
Racine, Que., July 15.—(Special)—
It i.s a very strange thing, but lately all through this province the people havo been talking in a straight,
downright.way about the medicine,
Dodd's Kidney Pills. Never before
hns a remedy made so many warm,
outspoken friends for itself. Whatever part of-Quebec one chances to be
in, the mentioning of Dodd's Kidney
I ills is always enough to bring forth
the grateful story of an experience
With this most remarkable remedy

E.nile Couatro, of this town, savs

hat effect. •>
"I mn going to say a word eon-
wrnl-ig Hodd's Kidney pills." he
writes. "J cannot do otherwise than
praise this wonderful medicine heart-
fly, for I nm now, owing to Dodd's
Kidney P,lls jn perr(.(,t health. For
some time I have not felt the slightest pain in the back. My kidneys are
working properly. When I go to bed
I find rest, whereas before using
Dodd's Kidney Pills I got up more
fatigued than the night before. I had
pain in the back and headache which
broke my sleep.
"I have taken only three boxes of
Dodd's Kidney Pills, and cannot help
but credit them with my cure. I
have been free from my trouble since
taking Dodd's Kidney rills."

Lincoln's Swear Word.
One story thnt is told of Lincoln relates to that extreme, correctively critical attitude which Secretary Sewntd
nl ways innintaiucl toward the presl-
ilent.
Mr. Lincoln nnd the secretary had
niuiiaged to cscnpe from a man who
hnd been boring them, nnd ns they
reached the house the president threw
himself Into nn armchair and ex-
elnitned:
"By Jlngs. governor, we aro beret"
Mr. Seward replied by asking In a
tvprovlng toue:
"Mr. President, where did yon learn
thnt Inelegant expression?"
Mr. Lincoln Immediately turned to
several young men who bad entered
the room In time to hear tbe exclamation nud said:
"Young gentlemen, excuse me for
-twonring before you. 'By Jlngs' Is
■swearing, for my good old mother
.taught me that nnythlng that had a

REFLECTIONS    OF  A  BACHELOR.
Every woman litis a list of women
in her hend that she is going to get
even wilh when her husband becomes
very rich.
The average woman's idea of comfort when sin- is miserable is to hnve
a man put his arm around her and
6uy, 'There, there."
When a until sees a woman with
high iiivlt-il shoes and a rainy-day
skirt on, ho feels so ashamed that he
can't  look her In the face.
Patience is unravelled hope.
You can always tell just what's
bound to happen to n fool till something i-Ist' situs.
Probably the greatest pleasure most
of the women will get In heaven will
be liniigiiig over tne walls watching
tin- iiit>ti in the oths-r place rubber.
A  crust and a kind word  are be'.-
ter than a feast, and indigestion.

The Slocan lias yielded good re*
iturns upon the capital invested.
Though but 10 years old, the camp
.has paid $3,500,000 in dividends.
Silver is a despised metal, but it
•comes in useful when dividends arc
■-wanted.	
Sonic outside Johnnies are talking
■opposition to R. F. Green should he
be elevated to the cabinet. At the
■present stage ofthe game any opponent Hob might have would stand as
much show in the Slocan riding as a
.chunk of ice near Lowery's Claim.
Lead has dropped to $1.05 per bun
.died pounds and silver to 58$ cents
per oz. Despite these, tank rapt
.juices, mining throughout the Slocan
bas improved of lato. So many dis
couraging influences, however, seem
to fall to the lot of a silver-lead camp
that it requires pluck to keep a stiff
-tapper lip through it all.
The lost has been found. W. A.
Galliher, M.P., bas turned up at
Nelson safe and sound. He has been
away up in Cariboo hunting up those
benighted pioneers who plumped 45
votes for him rather than the redoubtable Chris Foley. What the
savages did to Bill when he located
their retreat is not known.
Monday'-s Tribune sized up the
•■printing situation in south-eastern
British Columbia to a nicety, demonstrating the hopelessness of those engaged in the struggle for existence.
High prices for supplies nnd low
rates for job work and advertisements combine, with nn over-supply
of printshops, in a sparsely settled
country, to make tho life of a news
.paper man anything but agreeable.
How can you remedy matters ? The
chumps will embark in the business,
nnd the wholesalers will furnish
them with material, though the path
of journalism is strewn with the
wrecks of blasted hopes, shattered
ambitions, and unpaid bills.
The Mine Owners' Association has
petitioned the governor-general ''or
relief of the mining industry in British Columbia, which is alleged to be
overtaxed and bodged about with
"exasperating and clogging laws.
The petition is merely the carrying
of the eight-hour diflieulty from tlie
province to tho arena of federal politics. As touching upon local issues, the
governor general will undoubtedly
'refer it back to the provincial government to deal with, and that will
end the matter. The eight-hour law
will not bo touched and it is unlikely
-taxation will be lightened -at least
not until such times as bona fide evidence is forthcoming in support of
the allegation of thc mine owners.
The big mines of Rossland have
refused the demands of the mine
workers and each 6ide has settled
down to a long wait. In the meantime the business interests of the
camp arc suffering acutely and the
•whole province feels thc blighting
influence of the struggle. It seems
f)uch a little matter to pav the muck
ers an additional 50 cents a day. the
-estimated rncreaso being but $5000 a
'-year. Thirty-four out of the 35 camps

why cannot tho huge dividend pay-

A Vitlniibln Coin.
As the story goes, A. It. Boldcrston
is a sadder but wiser man. Some
time ago Bert McNaught, of Silver-
ton, who is somewhat ot a relic fiend,
noticed an odd-lookim- coin in the
possession of Mr Boldewtoh, With
a little persuasion he secured it in
exchange for n dime. On examination Bert found the coin was an English silver.piece—evidently a threepenny bit—of the reign of Charles
II., dated 1081, nnd with tho name
ol the maker partially readable.   He
wrote to an eminent authority on
coins, and this week, it is claimed,
received nn offer of $1000 cash for the
coin, it being classed as exceptionally
rare. A list price from a curio dealer
places the valuo of it at $1500, so
Bert will hold his treasure. Such is
life in a mining camp.
