City Clerk Pinchbeck officiated for

on Monday night. The othera seated
around the boafd were, Mayor McNeish, Aid. Smith, Henderson nnd

From L. Sohhosyn, in California,
inquiring about taxes on property
owned by him. Referred to the collector.
Receipt from the B. C. Gazette for
money paid was filed.
A petition was then presented from
20 odd citizens, asking to have the
sidewalks on Main stn.-et and De'aney
ave cleaned off and the snowplow run
around Fletcherayeand Slocan street.
Aid. Teeter remarked that those oe-
cupving places on Main street were
usually willing to clear off their portions of the walk.**, and those owning
vacant lots facing on the walks ought
to do th.- same.
His worship agreed in this. To
shovel tli" snow off the various walks
would cost considerable money, and
it would not be long now till the sun
took it off. He walked the streets »s
much as anyone and he found them

Aid. Smith elated that in eastern
towns it waa customary t'» run a plow
over the walks every morning after a
storm, but bere he did not ihink they
could afford it.
Aid. Teeter moved that the petition
be laid over. Second -d by Aid.Smith
and carried.
Bylaw No. 21. for raising a temporary loan of $2000, waa taken up aed
given its third reading. Accepted as
read and next meeting it will be re*

Aid. Teeter asked whether addition-,,
al bonds were required for thecollec*
tor. or whether the treasurer's bonds
would suffice.
The mayor stated he had requested
Mr. Anderson to hav the necessary
bond drawn up.   The question of the
amount had not lieen s tiled.
Aid. Henderson made a motion that
the bond .if the collector and treasurer
bo set at 11000, with two sureties.
Seconded by Aid. Teeter and carried.

Local Mine!  Will Get u  Kmull Share of
tlio Hnn<-y.
On Friday G.O.Buchannn,of Kaslo,
the commissioner appointed by the
Dominion government to administer
the lead boUnty, visited the camp for
the purpose of getting in order the
cl iims of local shippers. As the Slocan City division is practically a dry
ore territory, the claims are fuw and
small. The properties entitled to the
bounty are tne Nansen, Hampton, l
.- I, Rustler, Black I'rince and Enterprise. The lirst four have claims so
small that they are not worth considering. That' of the Black Prince
amounts to a little over £11 on the two
ears  shipped  in   December... with an
additional amount for the January
output. The Enterprise- has a tidy
little sum coming since July 1 last.
All claims must lx. made monthly and
are payable on the basis of 60 per cent
of the bounty, which is 7*5 cents per
hundred pounds.
Up to the end of January there had
been 596,000 of bounty money earned
by the British Columbia mine-. There
are ss properties on the list, but about
40 of these have insignificant claims.
The remainder will average over $1500
each, so that the money will be widely
distributed. The largest claimant is
the Highland, of Ainsworth, which
will get -SlS.OtM) for its share. Ne\t in

NuUoii Ipterraetllatei Defeated in n Kmi
mui Clean Game.
Tuesday evening the fastest and
cleanest game of hockey yet seen in
Slocan took place at the skating link,
'oetwwm Nelson and Slocan teams.
Th- former were Intermediates, while
the latter were a combination of seniors and juniors. Both teams were
very evenly lnatched.though the heme
boys were a little heavier, which enabled theni to win out, by a score of 0
goals to 7. The Nelson boys were
quite confident of victory, but they
met with a surprise. Thev had lots of
c.iin to bet, but fortunately for them
s -Ives found no takers. Th" smallness
of the rink interfered with the visitors'
combination and placed them at a disadvantage, while the ice at the last
became somewhat soft and heavy.
Almost every person in town turned
out to see the match, and the noise
they kicked up was terrific, ft was a
godd-natured crowd and they cheered
the visitors almost as liberally as t! e
home team. From the face-off the
paccwas terrific, there being scarcely
any rnugh play or olT-side work, so
the referee had an easy time. At the
half, Slocan was ahead 4 to 2. but
N'elson quickly took the lead when
play recommenced. Five minutes from
time Sloean wakened up aud scored
three goals, which gave them the victory. The onlv mishap during the
evening happened to Wallace, of Nelson, who butted iuto a post instead of
into his opponent and he got laid out
for a while. For the visitors Baker,
Shirpaud Greyerblehl seemed to be
It. and for the home team Pinchbeck,
Hicks, Milne and tlonnley shoncwith
the others pretty close up. Tains in
goal slopped some wicked fihots,while
McMillan and Lindow worked double
liift:-; when they got wai'tinnl up. It
was an excitlug game till the way
through,'giving the rooters splendid
. j ilort'unity to ;jet  in their fine work.

Elm Dale was tbe scene of Joyful
preparation, for Mr. and Mrs. Ezra
Hammood ivere soon to celebrate tbelr
golden wedding. From far and near
their children and grandchildren were
coming to tbe old country borne under
tbe great elms.
All of tbe neighbors were interested
in the coming event, and a number of
tbeui were pledged "to help out on
chairs and china." Patience Saybin,
familiarly known as "Patty." and ber
brother lived only a mile from Elm
Dale, but tbey had not been asked to
contribute, and Patty felt slighted.
"I've offered to lend tbem everything on tbe place, even you, Jobn,"
sbe said to ber brother, "but Mrs.
Hammond says tbey have all tbe arrangements made. I did want a finger
In the pie."
John laughed. "Never mind, little
girl." he said consolingly. "Mr. Hammond says tliey may ask us to 'sleep'
one or two if the old bouse won't bold
them all."
The day before the celebration Mrs.
Hammond drove over in the morning
to see Patty. "I thought we could
stow 'em all away." she said, with a
smile, "but I was thinking Mary had
four children 'stead of Ave. 1 don't
see how I came to forget little David
when I counted noses. I've tieeu wondering, dear, if you'd let blm sleep
here—either bim or one of tbe others''"
"Oh, yes!"' Patty cried delightedly.
"I should love to. Mrs. Hammond."
The old lady smiled. "I brought his
picture along." she said, "so you could
see what a dear little fellow he was."
Patty teent eagerly over the photograph. A pleasant little face smiled at
ber from the cardboard—the round,
dimpled face of a flve-yearoli "He's
a perfect cherub V she cried.
"I'm expecting most of my children
this evening, and If bis folks come I'll
.send him over before bedtime."
The dear old lady forgot to tell Patty
tbat tbe picture of David was taken
twenty-three years before.
All that day Patty was very busy
preparing "little David's room." An
old high chair and trundle bed were
brought down from tbe attic and dusted. Lizzie, tbe good natured girl In
tbe kitchen, made .some little round
cakes, and Patty frosted them and put
n pink "D" on the top of two or three.
When evening came everything was
In readiness for tbe expected guest
Tbe tin waiter and tiny knife, fork
und plate were on the dining room
table, and tbe little rocker held out Its
welcoming arms In the sitting room.
An old rocking horse tbat bad been
John's long ago waited patiently for
its gallant rider, and a little woolly
dog stood on three legs with an air of
The day bad been a long one to Patty. At 7 o'clock she was rearranging
tbe furniture in little Davids room
when ths doorbell rang. She went to
the head of tbe stairs and called to
"Hurry, Lizzie!" she cried. "They've
brought little David over. Take blm
into the sitting room and amuse bim.
I'll be down iu a few minutes." She
flitted buck to ber work and did not
bear Lizzie's exclamation of astonishment when she opened the door and
saw a big, broad shouldered man
standing there. Probably he bad overheard Patty's Instructions to the girl,
for his eyes were full of laughter,
though he said soberly enough: "Good
evening. I uin David Terrell. Miss
Saybin wus expecting me, I believe?"
"Y-y-yes, sir," Lizzie stammered,
"but she wasn't expectln* quite"— She
paused ln embarrassment
"Quite as much of me?" be asked
Lizzie giggled and led tbe way to
the sitting room. The little cbalr held
out Its welcoming arms In vain to tbls
guest. David Terrell's eyes rested at
once upon tbe rocking horse and woolly dog, and his expression momentarily grew more cheerful.
"Were these—ahem—these preparations mude iu my lionor?" be asked
Lizzie. Kut before the girl could answer a sweet voice came from the
upper landing, "Are you amusing him,
Lizzie?"    Lizzie giggled hysterically.
"Tell her you nre," the young man
"Yes'tn," she called In muffled tones
from behind her apron.
"Show him the picture books," the
voice went on. "und If the little fellow
Is tired tuke hiin up In your Inp."
Lizzie stepped into the lower ball
and turned her laughing face up to her
mistress. "Please, ma'am, I can't,"
she said.   "I'd hate to try."
"I'm ushamed of you!" the Indignant
reply came. "I'll come right down and
take hlm myself."
Lizzie-fled to the kitchen, and there
wns the quick click of heels on the
stairs. Then David Terrell saw a pretty picture framed In the wide doorway.
Miss Patty stood tbere. with surprise
nnd disappointment plainly written on
ber expressive face. j
"Where-wbere la"— sbe began in a
bewildered woy.
David enme forward. "I don't know
where he Is," be said. "If I did I'd get
blm for you, Miss Saybin." i
"You?" she asked.
"Yes. I'm little David's successor.
Will you forgive mo for growing older
and larger, Miss Saybin?"
Kor a moment the sensitive moutb
quivered. Sbe had anticipated so much, j
Tben sbe held out her band and said,
with a smile, "I suppose feu can't Itslp
It, but yon don't look much like yoar
"Oh, that's it! Grandmother showed
you that small boy photo, did she?'*
Patty nodded and smiled again. After
all. this David bad pleasant eyes, quite
Uke tbe little fellow's. "I am glad tbat
you came," she said hospitably. "My
brother and I are often lenely, and
Jobn will be delighted to entertain
some one of bis own age. I hear bim
coming now." And sbe rose snd went
to tbe door to meet bim. "John," David
beard her say, "Mr. Terrell ls bere."
"Mr. Terrell T tbe answer cam*.
"And wbo is he, Patty?'
"Hush! He'll hear us. It te little Di-
vid Dou't laugh so loud, John!" Sbe
slapped ber band into bis and led bim
to tbe sitting room, and ln a few minutes tbe three young people were on
tbe short road to friendship.
Late in tbe evening tbey adjourned
to tbe dining room for a little luncb.
Patty had forgotten tbe high cbalr and
its accompaniments, and It was with a
feeling of dismay that sbe saw tbelr
visitor's eyes traveling In that direction.
"Are these things for my use?' he
asked laughingly.
"What things?' Patty said Innocently*
"This high chair, tin tray and so on."
"Ob," sbe said, wltb a guilty glance
at John, "those belong to my brother."
John stared at ber ln amazement
His face grew crimson with suppressed
mirth wben Mr. Terrell said, "How old
ls yonr little brother?'

cried. "Better show htm all of my old
possessions, including tbe trundle bed,
but we'll not ask him to occupy it."
Tbe morning of the golden wedding
dawned clear and bright It was a day
filled with happiness for all wbo gathered at tbe old borne. At 10 that night
David Terrell gave John and Tatty full
account of "the gathering of the clans,"
as be called lt In conclusion he said,
"I shall bave to ask you to keep me
another nlgbt, but after tbat tbere will
be room for me at Elm Dale."
"I tbougbt you said you must go tomorrow," Jobn exclaimed.
"Yes; tbafs so. but since then"—and
he glanced quickly at Patty—"I've made
otber arrangements. My brother and I
are partners, and Jim ls willing tbat I
should have my summer vacation now."
"Ob," Patty cried, "I'm so glad!
Aren't you, Jobn?"
"Yes," he said heartily, but tbis sudden change of plans made bim suspicious.
David made good use of tbose four
weeks. His grandmother laughingly
accused him of spending half of bis vacation with tbe Saybins.
The last day came, and David walked
over for a farewell visit He found Patty alone on the vine shaded porch.
Jobn was away on business, sbe explained. "Never mind," David said
cheerfully. "It ls you I wish to see."
Her clear eyes were raised to bis inquiringly.
"Will you keep your word," be said
gently, "and take me?"
"My word!" sbe murmured wonder-
"Yes. Before I saw yon I heard yon
tell Lizzie tbat you were coming downstairs and you wonld take me yourself." There was a mischievous light in
bis eyes now.
Patty's face flushed. "Yon know I
didn't mean"— sbe began.

you will take me, dear, on trial for tbe
sake of little David?"
Sbe smiled into the honest eyes, ao

Judge BischofJ. of tho Supreme
Court of New York, has formally
decided, what scarcelv called for a
judicial decision, that love is not a
legal essential to marriage. Even to
obtain a husband or a wife under
false pretences, that is to say by
pretending love is not a fraud of
such a nature as to invalidate the
contract.' The astonishing thing is
that the issue ahould have beeo seriously raised in a court of law; hut
the text of the judgment suggests a
possible explanation in the fact that
the lady in the case is an actress,
and it ia by no means rare tor the
law to be used for advertising actresses. The learned judge adds: "If
the facts alleged in this case could
suffice for an annulment, marriai*.)
for love would be the only lawful
marriage—a condition favored by the
poets, but not as yet adoDted in
our system of jurisprudence" It is
to be feared that so many marriages have t>een promoted by false
assertions of affection that it would
be practically impossible for the.
courts to recognize this kind of
fraud as ground for divorce. But all
the same the poets are sometimes
wiser than the lawyers.—Montreal

"Many years    ago    Germany    wos

Count  Caprivi,   who   was     at     that
time head of thc Ministry of the Imperial  Navy,  was  asked   to   express
an opinion as to Germany's chanc.-s
in  the event of war and    said,  'We
ahould    have   a   trallant    opponent,
who.    however,     owing    to     inferior
war material,  would not  be able  to
ofler a serious resistance." Thereupon
Prince    Bismarck  decided     that    he
could    not recommend   the Emperor
[ to appeal to  the sword    and    that
'arbitration must  be resorted to. for.

The upper lip should be bow-shap-
ed, while the lower should form tht
arc of a circle, and to be ideally
beautiful the lower lip should show
\ more red than the upper. The li-is
should be only moderately full. |
Thick lips show a sensuous temperament; thin lips, exhibiting little
or no color, while indicating firmness and will power, are also indicative of a lack of amiability, and.

Firmly   closed  lips    indicate determination;  open     lips,  weakness   and i
vacillation.       The  open mouth is a
characteristic  of Idiots. |
The upper lip should hav* a slight
curve inward before its union with
the nost, for the straight lip indicates its owner to be unamiable and
unintelligent. Much depends on the
length of ths upper lip. I'he distance
from it to the nose should be one-
half the breadth of the mouth. A
short upper lip indicates liveliness, '
wit, fertility of invention, brilliancy
of repartee. A long upper lip is gen-
•rally Indicative of  stupidity.

The inhabitants of Palestine mads
use in very ancient times of tha
sling, tho roost skillful in its use
being the tribe of Benjamin, whose
boast it was never to miss their
aim. What makes their skill appear more surprising was that they
managed to sling with the left hand.
The men who came to David's help
at X.iklag were no less adroit. They
used at will either t»e right hand
or the left. The sling was also tht
favorite weapon of shepherds, who
witli it drove away wild beasts !
preying on their flocks. This makes
David's victory over the giant Goliath less surprising, as he had no
doubt great practice in "re use of
this instrument while guarding his
father's sheep.

Mary Malcolm's Life Was Measured by Days and

Another Remarkable Cnre Brought
Out by the Collingwood and
Eglinton Cases.
Toronto, Feb . 15—(Special.)—Ths
Interest in medical circles here ever
the cures of Mrs. Adams, of Collingwood, and Mrs. Philip, of Eglinton,
of Height's Disease, has been given
fresh fuel by anothor and yet more
startling cure of that samo terrible
ailment. This latest case is that of
a young g/rl, Mary Malcolm, -Abo
lives with her parents at iqo. Marlboro Avenuo, this city.
Heath Seemed Sara.
This cure Is little short of miraculous. Miss Malcolm was ln the
clutches of Bright's Disease from May
until Septembur, and hud BU/lk so
low that her lifo was measured by
days If not by hours. Hope had
given place to u ceitalnty o! death,
uud her friends had turned to ths
sad tusk of preparing her grave
clothes. These last ghastly narments
are now in the house, but Mury Malcolm is a strong hearty maiden who
can look on tbem without even a
shudder of fear. Dodd's Kidney Tills
effected the change. Here is the story
as told by the girl's mother, Mrs. W.
Malcolm :
"My daughter Mary, who Is now
fourteen yeurs old, was t.vken suddenly ill with Bright's Disease in
Hay, 1902. We had ths doctor ond
continued with him till September,
iyo2, when he said he could do nothing more for her. She was so
swollen with Dropsy as to os almost
Cure Wat ynluk.
"From a book dropped ln at tho
door, we learned of J)odds Kidney
Fills and as a lust resort determined
to try theni. They Rave her relief
from the very beginning, so much SO
that in one week we wero able to
take her out to Munro Park for aa
"After taking four boxes, rhe was
entirely cured and she has'nevef hud
the slightest relapse, Wo can never
say too much for Dodd'S Kidney
Pills, us they certainly s.i\ed my
daughter's life "
And Mary, the daughter on whom
Bright's Disease had pronounced the
sentence of death, now n picture of
healthy girlhood, smil.-d .1 cheerful
assent to her mother's statement and
chimed In, "If I um ever si. k Benin
1  will   take nothing but   Dodd's   I-.id-
ney Pills "
it is hardly necessary to add that
proof piled on proof has convinced
the public that Bright's Disease is
curable and thut Dodd's Kidney Tills
are the cure: that if the disease is of
the kidneys or from the kldnevi the
ono unfailing remedy is Dodd's Kidney  pills.

Ilrnd  Hunters.
Head hunters Is the name given to
the professional assassins of tbe Solomon Islands. The vocation of these
men Is to procure the heads of those
whom they are hired to murder or to
sell the victims for sacrificial purposes.
Sometimes the enemies of a man offers
large sum to be paid lu the native shell
money for the hend. which will be n
proof of death, and tbe bend hunter,
with cold blooded nnd unscrupulous
methods, lays bis plans.
frequently great caution Is necessary. The Intending murderer will
worm hla way Into the friendship of
Ids victim, and 11 long period may
eTapse before the opportunity will arrive for the fatal stroke. It may thus
Iittpiicn that the murdered man's death
will have been compassed by one whom
he has regarded as tbe closest and
most loving of Intimates. Surely tbls Is
the most hateful of all professions followed for the sake of gain.
A   I'rince   I".dirni-<|   laland   Legend.
There Is a delightful legend among
the people of Point Prim to tbe effect
that when the Knglisli attacked the

from oue of the attacking vessels cut
the steeple from the old church located
on the very point. In falling lt toppled
over the promontory and carried the

Bone Felon.
A physician of large practice says he
has found an egg tbe most efllcaclou*
cure for a bone felon. He uses It In tbis
fashion: Take a fresh egg and crack the
larger end, making a bole Just big
enough to admit the thumb or finger
and forcing it Into the egg as far as
possible without further rupture of the
shell. Wipe off the egg that runs out,
bind a handkerchief or soft cloth over
nil and let the finger remain over night
•Generally the felon Is cured; if not, an
other application finishes it.

Ailments   of  the   Most   Painful  and   Fatal  Nature
Prevented and Cured by
When you think of tho tniin and
suffering which accompany Lnckuchc,
rhsumatistn, lumbago, stone in the
kidneys and bludder; when vot. think
of thu dreadful fatality of Bright's
disease, dropsy, diabetes and apoplexy, you muy well woildor why people neglect to keep the kidney* in
perfect order for all theso a'lrrientb
are tlie direct result of dSTADtfAd kidneys.
Onco the kidneys fall to tiltor from
the blood Ihs in-pure and poisonous
waste mutter that's is irouiile of a
painful und dangorous nature.
Among the Urst symptoms are tack-
ai he, weak, lunie 11a-.*k, pains in th'*
u-gs mui sides, deposits in the utino,
Impaitod digestion, lo-^s n( flesh,
energy und ambition, stifTness snd
soreness in tho Joints und fnelinge of
weariness uml lassitude.
Preventjoii is always better than
cure, and hence the advisability of
using Dr. Chase's Ktdnsy-Liver fills
on the very first indication of such
derangement.    Whether to prevent or
cure,  Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver l'ills
i are the most effective treatment you
can  obtain,  for  besides  their uircct
and  specific  action   on   ths  kidneys,
I they keep the bowels regular nnd the
liver   active, and   hence   purify   tbs
' system and remove the cause  of   disease.
! This medicine has long sinco prov-
(en its right to first place as a curs
.for the complicated and serioia ds-
Irangements of the Dlterinz and excretory organs. It has th* largest
sale and is endoreed by more people
than any similar treatment. Vou
can depend on it absolutely to trins
prompt relief and a lasting cure. In
view of these facts it is a waste ol
time and money nnd a risk to life itself to trifle with new and untried
remedies when Dr. Chase's Kidney-
l.iver Pills are at hand. One pill *

A quartette of announcements have
lieen made during the past few days
that will have an emphatic bearing on
the mining industry of the country,
and will lie the means of attracting
capital onco more for invest merit in
the mines of the various camps. To
the Slocan, of primal importance
the announcement by P. Fernau, that
British capitalists purpose erecting
three separate, plants in the district,
one for the smelting of lead ores nnd
the other two for the treatment of
zinc. Tliere is every reason to believe
he is iu earnest and initial operations
wilQCommence in the summer. Tin
result will be a largely increased output of. ore and the-employment of
many more men. Xo. 2 is the declaration of the tenth dividehd bv the
Sunset mine, near Cody, of 16000,
making $60,000 to date. No. !1 is the
published account of the enormous
profits made by the Crow's Nest Conl
Co. Inst yt'nr.which amounted to $810,-
•192. From this four dividends of 2h
por cent each were paid, Earned
profits so large must necessarily mean
that an immense sum of money has
been distributed in wage*, and for supplies at the several collieries, making
good times and aiding general prosperity, Bul perhaps of more vital in
terest to the well being of the province
is the statement made at the annual
meeting of the Le Koi mine, in I.on
don, last week, that the property had
made $100,000 profit for the year ending June ,'t(), HK'.'l. ami that for January of this year a further sum of $.">(>,-

regarded as the premier mine iu British Columbia by tin- Investing public
in Great Britain, and its changing
fortunes have been reflected upon the
other mines owned and operated by
British capital. When the Whittaker
Wright bauble broke, Le Boi's went
all to pieces, as did many other provincial stocks, but careful management hns restored the mine to the dividend stage and confidence has been
renewed, to the lasting benefit of  the
Kossland  camp and  tjip whole proi

one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
