The 21th of May is held Bacred in

daw th"\- hold high carnival, with the
aid and assistance of tho grown people. This year the celebration had to
lie held on tin.' day previous.Snliirilay.
and right loyally was tho occasion
honored. In the morning tbe hat was
passed around and about 160 gathered
ih for prize money, In the afternoon
the children formed in procession,
headed by the band, and parad d the
principal streets, after whieh the general sports were held. The fun was
witnessed by a large concourse of people, and the proceedings were enlivened bv selections from tin" band. 1).
S. McVannel, Bob Allen, Billy Davidson, Larry Knowies and Chief Armstrong had charge of the sports.
The winners iu the various events
were as follows, in order as named:
Footrace,   girls   under   12   Mabel

1 and eiicum-tau'.vs will permit.
In the fulliltnent of all these plan-.
it ean ba seen there* will Ik? a small
army of men employed, particularly
SO as all the buildings an* to bo finish -
ed,if pos6iblo,this fall. In tho m*atntime
the force at ihe shingle mill is to be increased, and the iila nt ruu to its full
capacity. Mr. Chew Btnted the headquarters of the company would b
onee establish**-*! hero and all operations conducted from this end. He
I'oit'. rated former atsJ-sertion'" that local
men and merchants would bo given'
tht* preference in every particular,
though the company would naturally
conduct their affniraou strict busin ;-
principles. A difficulty is exporienc id
ai present ia getting meu to i'll lh"
several positions at the Bhingle mill
and the company are anxious to complete their complement at onoe. Thoy
state they are Offering even a higher
rate of wages than those prevailing on
th:1 coast.
Coming to another important matter relative to the company's dealings
with the citizens, Mr. Chew stsii.il the
concern was now in a position t.i live
up to its verbal agreement made at
the outset, to give any aud all local
people so desiring, the privilege to acquire stock in the enterprise, i'he
company is capitalized at 9100,000, in
IJ100 share i, and thc citizens could i
subscribe at par value of the shares.
Suffice it to say that in the east the
stock can ix* sold abovo par, but the
company bo far has Ih'pu a close corporation' and they claim no outsiders
will br allowed in on (he same basis
as offered here. The company courts
the fullest investigation into their affairs and auy information desired will
V freely given. A number of citizens
havo expressed their intention of investing and they will doubtless realize
handsome!',' ou their venture. It is
th • company's aim to to wor!; amicab-
Iv with the p'.oph' her.*, having the
desire to do al! in their power tor tbe
advancement of th" city, As Mr,
Chew stated, the companv are bere
and they Intend to stay, aud they wish
to be considered in all things part and
parcel of the lifs* of Slocan.
In conclusion, Mr.Ghow stated tbat
it was most unfortunate tlmt tbo arrangements between the .corporation
and the companv regarding the mill-
site had not yet been fully completed.
That tin1 delay had been unavoidable,
he could readily understand, bul it
would be a Boutce of satisfaction to
the directors when the matter was dually settled. The company, while
feeling confident of (he ultimate completion of the deal With the city.u;'\'(",•-
theless desired to have all the details
of ths site settled beforo carrying to
the lull their plans for the erection of
the remainder of their plant. Delay
had been caused by this to the company's operations, and the sooner the
cause waa remaYod tho better it would
bo for all parties concerned.

Rival nine ciubs.
Monday was quietly noted here, but
a few of (he citizens went up tsi New
Denver to celebrate Victoria day along
with-the rifle club.   Had the people
of the Lucerne got a move on they
could have had quits' a decent celebration, for the folk of the neighboring
towns wanted an outing. They started
to do something when it waa too late
and BO missed a good timo. In the
morning the match between thi' New
Denver and sSlocan team; was shot off,
the visitors winning by three points.
The general result was a li" and it required three extra rounds per man to
decide the contest, so close was the
scoring. It was an exciting finish.
A scratch baseball game was held in
the afternoon, affording some fun.

"That Is monstrous," Insisted Brenda.   "Do not consider It."

ro'im nnd was full of good will io nil
mankind as the result of the convers'i-
tton with the doctor. He felt that Maclane had n Just grievauce against hiin.
aud he began at once a most earnest attempt to repair the injury. Maclane
was relieved to fiud Alden in a pilant
mood—the rarest of all ills moods, by
the way—and the two walked toward
thu avenue together In on atmosphere
of cordiality such as surrounds sometimes the unfriendly victims of a com-
nis.n misfortune.
t'pon arriving at his office Alden met
Detective Klmeudorf, with tbo result
already disclosed. Profiting by the advice received In the course of tills interview nnd by his memories of many
Stories of crimes, criminals and sleuth-
hounds of the Inw, Alden succeeded In
eluding both tho shadow of "trouble"
oud the shadow of "business," aud bis
doings for ou hour or two were wholly
unknown to the police. At 8 o'clock he
appeari'il at St. Winifred's hospital,
where he was Informed by Dr. Kendall
that Elsie would receive blm presently.
At thnt moment Elsie wns conQdiug
to Brenda her opinion thnt Mr. Aldeu
would suffer a grievous disappointment
"He won't expect to see me like
this." she said. "I look like death's

' Brenda.     "Hark!    They   aro  coming

She stepped to the door aud ushered
In Alden and Kendall.

but wben her face emerged from the
mists of Imperfect vision precisely
Elsie's, with every well remembered
attribute of beauty, lt was an attack
upon an unprotected spot in his defenses, and every drop of blood lu his
body cried out with the voice of ono
great sob,
I "Tbls Is what I wns nfrnld of." muttered Kendull. "Confound hlm! I
knew he'd brenk down."
Ho glanced uneasily at Elsie, bul she
seemed quite calm.   She extended her
[ band toward Alden, and hu kissed It,
falling on his knees beside the bed.
1     "Y'ou  must uot feel sorry  for tin-."
said she.   "I am very comfortable, a ud

"Dear little girl." he snid. still kneel*

"You are not to speak that way." replied Elsie, with that manner which
•accompanies long considered words.
"You have your own lifo to lensl. You
must not spoil lt for me."
Alden's face was gray with anxiety
as ho looked Into Elsie's.
"Don't say we have gone back; tbat
It's all like lung ngo," he began. Hut
the warning eye of tho vlgilnnt Ken*
dnll, who had softly stepped to tho
head of tbe bed. upon the other sid>i,
checked this plea. Alden writhed witb
tho effect, but his will held blm.
"1 mustn't worry you," he said; tben,
with balf an eye on Kendall: "Elsie.
Who did this?   Tell me, little girl."
"I don't know; really I don't," she
answered. "Why do you thluk that 1
Again tbe doctor silently protested,
and Aldeu took heed.
"I had not beard It from you," he
said. "But let us put It out of our
minds. What can I do for you? Is
there anything you need? We will
hold a conference on the subject"
"Brenda would get me anything lu
the world," replied Elsie. "She has
been as good as two mothers to me.
Brenda, what do I want?"
"Rest and tin s'asy mind and your
real mother as soou as she can corns',"
replied Brenda. "As to Mr. Alden's
contribution, I would suggest a pretty
picture or two to put on the walls.
They would relieve the eye. Elsie has*
asked for Tantalus, but the art committee, consisting of Dr. Kendall and
myself, refuses to hang him."
"The art committee Is all right." said
Aldeu. "1 shall submit some pictures
to lt with confidence." <
Thus tho talk drifted from topics too
exciting, and some minutes ws-re spent
pleasantly and conventionally enough.
Then, as Alden was about to take bl*
leave, Elsie suddenly began tn wi'i»|   '
very   bitterly   and   without   nppan nl
cause, for It was a parting for a feu
hours.   To Brenda sfterwanl she said '

As ilie matter seemed to involve ihe
health of the patient nnd certainly lhe
regulation of Mr. Alden's visits, Brenda consialered herself bound to report
the remark to Dr. Kendall.
"It Is all very mysterious to me." snid
be. "She loves him with her soul ami
body, but she believes that it is nil
"She will not always think so," replied Brenda.
"That may be true," he said, "but I
think I know her, nnd, so thlnkin?, I
hope my own wedding won't have to
wait for theirs."
"Your wedding!" exclaimed Brenda
ln surprise. "I did not know It was arranged."
"Of the three persons most intimately concerned In It." he replied, "two nre
already  to be counted  upon — myself
and the clergyman.    As to the ether,
there Is much doubt"
"Let us hope It will vanish."
"Hope Is a thin diet fnr the affections." said he, "but they live loug ou it !
N tho following morning
Captain Neale appeared at SL Winifred's,
demanding an Inter-
\ lew with Elsie. Kendall had succeeded In
rs'fuslng a similar demand upon the previous evening and would have been glad
to do It again, f..r he dreaded Neale ln
a sickroom ns If be had been the angel
of septlcii'inla, but the doctor could
not honestly spy that Elsie's condition
wns such as to justify him lu shielding
ber from all questioning.
As for the captain, he was "up
ngninst a new game," to use his own
expression. Never before bad be been

doubtless upon Ibis accouui then* were

Otherwise Still have been struggling In
this probationary state. When Kendall demurred, Neale strong1 y intimated that he would "make tronble" for
the doctor, but ii was his own conscience nnd not bit fears Which decld-
sal Kendall's action,
•"1 ou can see her," be said, "If you
will behave yourself."
Aud Neale was speechless In the pres
ence of tbls audacity, it was not that
Neale was a captain of police, for such
au officer may or may not amount to a
row of pins; It was thnt be was Joe
Neale, the man with a "pull." Therein
lay the terror of bis wrnth.
Kor as well as Elsie could be prepared for tbls Interview she shuddered
and tnrned pale wben ber eyes first
rested upon tbe peculiar, grimacing
countenance of tbe captain, more dls-
t-i'SA-'Ing than usual at that moment because he was trying to look beneficent
Neale had a singular delusion that he
could be nnd seem to be all things to
all people, although, in fact, his voice,
his face and his manner wero more
rigidly Incapable of disguise thnn those
of "tiy other mnn bet wen the two
oceans. He hnd a monkey's pride In Im-
lift linn without n trace of the monkey's
capacity for It, nnd upou this occasion
he *vni engaged In counterfeiting the
demeanor of a family physician because ho knew that Kendall did not believe he could do It And It wns his expresses! conviction afterward that he
Inal made the doctor "feel foolish."
"Oosid morning," said he. "'jlftd to
see you looking so fine. You'll be out
in ■• week, and by the lirst of the month
you'll be throwing WISSsSS over the footlights again."
Elsie's forehs"i'l reddened wltb
wrath, nnd she opened her mouth to
pay something ibat wonld have shown
in.ne spirit than discretion; hut. catching lli.'iida's eye. she suddenly closed
her lii's lightly.

"Do you mean '.hat you wish me to

with 0 glance at Kendall
I     The doctor's f-ioe was wearing that

first stage of seasickness    He nodded,
and Bremln  walked toward the door,
which  Kendall opened for her.  while
Ns'olc bowed several times as she de-
; parted.    Tben the captain drew up a
chnlr to the side of the bed. upmi the
i edge of  which  be  laid  his enormous
nnd   hairy   band,   clinched,   with   the
knuckles uppermost    Elsie looked at
' it.  fascinated,  wondering If  It  could
really be a hand.
I     "We got to have a little light en this
' woman." sold the cnptnln.
"What woman?" Inquired Elsie
"The one wbo called on you that afternoon." be replied.
"Miss Miller has already sold"— Ken-
'all began, but the captain lifted his
hand from the bed, thereby causing
one side of It to rise suddenly, and
nioile a gesture of protest
"She'll do the onswering." he said.
"Who says that any  woman called
', in me?" demanded Elsie.
"Now. don'l gel excited." responded
;  He  captain     "It's   well  km>wu   that

I    Rlsle remained silent for a moment
i^'.'ien she said:
'There might have been fifty women

nbout it What did this woman look
"Haven't yeu seen the newspapers'1*-
asked Neale.
"Only some little pieces—Just to look
at tho pictures," she replied. "Dr. Kendall didn't wish me to read the stories."
"Did you see the pictures of the 'mysterious woman,' drawn from description?"
"Miss Maclane didn't show them to
you?   Well, well!   How singular!"
"1 selected the things to be shown to
Miss Miller," said Kendull; "most of
them." I
"And you cut out all about the
mysterious woman?" queried Neale.
"It was not Intentional," replied the
doctor, reddening. "I merely happened
to do It."
"I guesa Miss Maclane helped you,"
said Neale.
"What has Miss Maclane to do with
It?" asked Elsie.
"A good many people think she was
the woman," replied the captnln.   "It's
beginning  to   be  said  all  over,   but
there's one person who thinks so and
won't say so—yet"
"Who's that?" said Elsie.
"Dr. Blair," responded Neale.   "You
know who he IsT"
i    "I've met him," sbe replied.    "Mrs.
Simmons got him to come to see me
onee when I was sick.   I think he was
staying at the bouse then.   What has
he to do with this affalrr
The captain explained,
i    "It seems to me," said Elsie, "that
anybody who ever saw Miss Maclane
would know her next time,    if Dr.
Blair says that be doesn't recognize
her, then sbe isn't the woman no saw."
"Do you deny that she called upon
you?" persisted tbe captain.
"I certainly do deny It," replied Elsie,
with decision.
"Perhaps it was some other woman
who looked like her," suggested Nenle.
"I don't know any woman who looks
Uke her," said Elsie.   "I mver saw one
wbo did."
The captain glanced at Kendall and
said slowly:
"She doesn't know anybody wbo looks
Uke Miss Maclane."
"Well." said Kendall "what of It?"
Uannohed on nis Utrrar, Career.
"I understand yonr son has des'ided

Similar Sufferers Con Understand Bis
Hours of Agony.
There Is no mortal more miserable
tban the poor dyspeptic. Ho is never
heulthy, never happy—always ailing,
always out of sorts. Every mouthful of food brings hours of distress—
every moment of the day ls spoiled
and soured.
Ii you are a dyspeptic you know
thc signs; the coated tongue, the
0"-Jll headaches, tho heartburn, the
biliousness, the persistent torment
•iter meals, the hopeless despondency. Any one of these aigais points
to indigestion. The one sure cure
for indigestion iu Dr. Williams' I'ink
Pills. They mako new blood—that's
tho who<ie secret. Through the blood
they will brace up your strength,
waken your liver, and set your stomach right. If you ask your neigh-
botsyou will find prrof of this right
at your own home, Mr. Charles
Wood, Mars, Ont., one ol the thousands of dyspeptics cured by tha use
of these pills, says : 'Tor upward!
of twelve years 1 was a great sufferer
from indigestion and nervousness.
Everything I ate tortured me. 1 doo
toresl almost continuously, and used
almost everything recommended for
this trouble, but never got more
than temporary relief until I Lepan
the use of Dr. Williams' Tink Pills.
Words cannot express the good these
pills have done me. I am In better
health than 1 have enjoyed in years
liefore, and I have proved that Dr.
Williams' Tink Pills cure whesn othiT
medicroes  fail."
Had blood is the mother of fifty
diseases, and Dr. Williams' Pink
Tills will cure them all. because they
convert bad blood Into good, rich,
red blood, without which thero can
bo neither health nor strength. Don't

Wisdom has been learned since the

The -situation at Victoria lias come
to a head and tho Prior {jovemment is
a thin*,' of the past. Eherta and Wells
have been dismissed and Mt'Inues has
resigned. The house will pass supply
and then dissolve. Whowill be chosen
to form a government is not known.
Last Thursday Senator Temple-man
headed a delegation of the British
•Columbia members of the comiiuius
and representatives of the mineowners
uud interviewed the government on
the lead question. They asked for a
bounty of SIT) a ton, the money to be
paid direct to tho producer. That is
the proper caper. It is the mine and
uot the siii-jlter that nesds assistance.
Pass the bounty and keep the smelters
und railways from increasing their
rates, and the mineowuer will get a

Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president
of theC.P.lt., has soured on British
.Columbia, judging from his remarks
to the Vancouver Province last week.
He denied that his road was seeking
connections at Seattle or Spokaue, or
would add a now Empress litter to tin-
Japan fleet; the Vancouver hotel would
not be finished till the labor market
got settled; the big wharv.'s in that
city would not lie built till needed;
and no more branch lines would be
constructed in the province,for those
they now owned were not paying. Sir
Thomas ought to know what he is
t.ilking of, but it is a safe bet he is
straining the truth if he denies the
proiit-makiug of the Crow's Xest and
Columbia & Western brauehes. If
they don't pay then the whole system
must lie verging on bankruptcy.
Thomas is just a weo bit out of sorts
over that East Kootenay grab and lias
set his little hammer knocking. His
remarks make him appear foolish and
Rossland'* two papers, the World
and Miner, received a rare roasting
from Mr. Justice Martin.at the Nelson
assizes last week. It was in connection
with the Daniels-Morgan libel suit, in
which the manner of conducting the
municipal affairs of Rowland was
freely ventilatsd, the two papers being
charged with accepting stiff monthly
bribes to wink at wrong-doing. His
lordship characterized the two journals as a "disgraceto th6community."
If guilty, the World and Miner deserved all that was said of them, and
their period of usefulness is ovor; if
innocent, the accused journals shoulil
take the nOaOBSSar** steps to prove and
emphasize tln'ir integrity. Aspersions
on the public prose are more common
in British Columbia than in other portions of Canada, but, while all the
provincial editors are admittedly poor,
it can aud should be demonstrated
that some of them at least have uot
parted company with honor.
Tlio World has since resented tlu-
judge's strictures and denies that it
has ever received any hush money.
The Miner, too, hastens to record its
denial of participating in such i-ues
tiouable dealings, at least uniler present management. So the situation
now resolves itself into a i|iieslion of
veracity.    You may take  your choice.
