City council met in regular session
''"* l sOq*ay n*s?ht, and waded into a
heap oi subjects, some of them of
much moment to the burg. Present:
Mayor York, Aid. Worden, Smith,Mc-
Ni-isli and Arnot.
Aid. McCallum presented his credentials and took his seat for the first
time at the new board.
Aid, McCallum spoke of the appointment of the police and license
commissioners, as being different from
the council's recommendation. He
was surprised at his own appointment
but had consented to act.
Correspondence read: From H. D.
Curtis, auditor, maintaining the correctness, substantially, of his report
on the school trustees' books, but explaining the debatable points. Ordered filed.
Aid. Worden wrote, tendering the
free use to the council of his half interest in the city hall for the current
year. Accepted on motion of Aid.
Arnot aud McNeish.
It. A. Bradshaw notified the council
that the rent of the city hall from
March 1 would lie increased to $7.50
per month, the present rent being
*}2.50.   Laid over for one week.
The Provincial Secretary wrote,
notifying the council that Aid. McCallum and C. E. Smitheriiigale had
IxH'ii appointed police and license
commissioners.   Filed.
Ii. Wolfendeii, the kiug's printer,
qiiot.'d price of 815 for a copy of the
revised statutes of 18(.)7, and "52.50 for
each rear since, or a total of 527.50.

Tho clerk reported thersvwas a bll-
anec of SlOi.lO in tlie treasury. Aid.
Arnot and Worden then moved that
tlie stilt ulcs required be purchased.
Bills presented: H. Guest, stationery, 53.40; R..I. Bentley, returning officer. 810. Referred to the finance
A long discussion followed upon the
question of assessing the city, laid
over from last week, the main issue
lieing the cost. The clerk held that
it would take nearly two months to
complete the work and enter it in the
The various aldermen agrml upon
the absolute necessity of rushing the
assessment, so as to get the taxi's into
the treasury.
Aid. Worden and Arnot inovid that
the clerk I*' appointi-d assessor, at a
salary of §50. for the year 11103, ths>
assessment to commence at once and
end on March 16.   Carried,
Aid. McCallum and Smith moved
that the assessment roll lie made returnable to council on March 16. Carried.
The mayor introduced the subject
of passing a road tax bylaw, by which
means tlie city would derive much
more revenue, the yearly rate lieing
$2. It would lie collected from every
man not contributing otherwise to the
city's finances. They had lieen given
the power to levy the tax when lirst
incorporated as a city, but had so fur
refrained from doing so. There were
numliers of men in the city who ought
to contribute to the maintenance of
tho city's streets and sidewalks. The
tax was collected in other towns and
should Ik* here.
After some hesitancy on the part of
the council, Aid. McCallum gave not
ice of introducing road tax bylaw No.
li> at next regular meetings
The clerk was instructtxl to look
after the treasurer's binds.
The appointment of a sixth alderman was next taken up, the council
lieing unanimous on the point of securing a man at once.
Aid. McCiillum suggested the major appoint a committee to interview
all eligible ratepayers for the position.
Aid.Arnot made a motion in accordance with the suggestion, which was
seconded by Aid. McCallum, and carried.
His worship appointed Aid. Arnot.
McCallum and McNeish to the committee, they to report at the next reg-
ular meeting.
Aid. McCallum spoke of appointing
a collector for the year. Moved liy
Aid. Smith nnd Arnot that 11.1. Bentley lie appointed city clerk and collector at the same salary as last year.
iiis worship stated nothing had as
yet lieon heard from the government
respecting the caiic-elliitic-m of bylaw
H, but so soon as wordcaine a special
mooting would beheld. As there was
no particular business ahead,he would
sut^gi'st the council not meet again for
two weeks, so as lo allow the members
to go to ii concert next Monday.
Aid. McNeish said it looked pretty
weak to adjourn  for u concert, and [
others stated it was establishing a bad
The mayor replied there was really
nothing to do, anyway.
In answer to a query from Aid. McCallum, the clerk said the collection
of trailers' licenses would commence
on the morrow.
Aid. Worden rose and objected to
the taxes piled on him. He was down
for $50 wholesale liquor, $10 Music
Hall, $10 livery, and $5 for selling
coal. It was a regular bleeding. If
insisted on, he gave notice he would
drop the wholesale business. He was
only selling a little beer and did not
make $50 out of it.
Mayor York suggested amending
the bylaw.
Clerk Bentley said the bylaw could
not be nme-rsded by a simple resolution. He read the bylaw,showing the
operation of the clauses objected to.
Aid. Arnot next rose to make his
maiden speech, on the question of a
waterworks system for Slocan. He
would like to see au engineer's report
on the scheme obtained as soon as
possibk*, so that the council might
proceed with putting it in. He urged
the council to lose no time with this
important matter. Personally.he was
in the council for the purpose of getting water in the city and he was going to work hard for that object.
Aid. McNeish had spoken to one
engineer on the subject, and the latter
had stated it would be ini|>ossible to
(XHsduct a proper survey to Goat
creek till after the snow had gone. It
was useless to try and do anything
before snmmer.
Aid. McCallum produced an old estimate on the scheme, as submitted to
the council by Messrs. Gething and
Taylor. A report was very essential.
Large Ixxlies moved slowly, such as
the city council. It would be well to
get all tlie preliminary work done, so
that they might act promptly when
the snow did go off.
Mayor York was gratified io see
such warm advocacy of the scheme.
.Be would suggest thc iire, water and
light committee handling the matter.
Aid. McCallum had seen Engineer
Morrison, of Nelson, who would make
a prelinary survey for the scheme for
$200 or so.
The discussion cudi-d in the fire

hold of the scheme, with  instructions
to -report as soon as possible.
Aid. McNeish wanted to know what
about the payment of th" school expenses for January. Aid. Arnot and
Smith moved that the clerk draw n
voucher for $150 at the first of each
month for school purposes.   Carried.
Aid. Worden, on liehalf of the fire
brigade, made application for three
good fire ladders and 15 rubber coats.
Aid. McNeish said rubber goods

March 1, so the council had better

The mayor introduced subject of a
donation to the city band, but no action was taken.
Aid. McNeish inquired how much
monev had been collected for liceuses
since Jan. 1, and was told $815.
Aid. McCallum moved that all committees hand in their estimates for the
year uot later than the 16th. Seconded
by Aid. Arnot and carried.
Council adjourned.
Kxpluaalery Circular Isssicd by the Pro-
vlsienal Secretary.
H. Mortimer    Lamb,   provisional
secretary of the B. C. Mining Associ
ation, recently organized at Victoria,
has issued the following circular to
the public:
The conditions surrounding the
mining industry of British Columbia
the principal industry of the province-have Ix-come so burdensome
that mining operations have ceased to
yield a profit U* investors, and capital
has ceased to flow into the country.
Kfforts hnve liceu mado liy certain
classes of the community, sometimes
on liehalf of practical miners, sometimes on behalf of the niineowners.and
sometimes by delegations from municipalities to secure relief from parliament of Canada and the legislature of
this province. All such efforts have
hitherto failed, partially owing to the
imperfect knowledgeof our difficulties
possessed by our legislators, and partially owing* to the lack of united organization fairly representative of all
persons interested in the mining industry. With a view to overcoming
such obstacles and securing for the
mining industry the support which it
deserves.it is proposed to form a large
and representative association of miners, mineowners, merchants, bankers,
farmers and professional men, and all
other persons who may be directly or
indirectly interested in the mining industry.
By this means and apparently by
this means only, can we secure relief
for the industry and such favorable
legislation as will restore confidence
in foreign capitalists. If we can make
our niiuing industry prosperous, every
other industry iu tne province will
naturally and necessarily share in
such prosperity. The present depression of nearly all such other industries
is the natural and necessary result of
the depression in mining.
The proposed association is not an
untried experiment. Some years ago
the miners and mineowners of California found themselves hampered as
we are uow with a lot of unjust legislative conditions. A few individuals
met together to discuss the situation
and devise a remedy, and they started
the California Miners' Association for
that purpose. The idea was grasped
immediately by the working miners,
mineowners, merchants, farmers, and
others, and the result was that within
a very short time the association succeeded in obtaining all the remedial
legislation they required, and the mining industry of the state increased by
leaps and bounds and brought pros-
perity to all other industries also.
Fortunately wo have in our midst a
gentleman—J. B. Holison, manager of
the Consolidated Cariboo Hydraulic
Mining Co.- -who was one of the originators of the California Miners' Association, nnd he will lend all the assistance he can to make a similar success of the Provincial Mining Association of British Columbia.
A preliminary meeting was held iii
Victoria on January 14th, when a
committee was appointed to draw up
a re-port to be presented to a public
meeting on the following day. Ou
Jan. 15th, a large and representative
public meeting was held in the board
of trade building. Victoria, attended
by numbers of working miners, mine
managers, merchants, memliers of the
who realized that the welfare of the
mining industry means the welfare of
the province. Tho chairman, Mr.
Holison, explained fully the objects of
the new association. The greatest enthusiasm prevails, aud it was realized
that at length a means had lieen
found that would ensure an uplifting
of the mining industry from its present depression to a position of prosperous expansion.
The meeting recognized that owing
to the rather spontaneous nature of
the new scheme no opportunity had
been afforded to secure the co-operation of the people throughout the province, and it was decided to call a
convention, to lie held iu Victoria on
Feb. 25th. when delegates from all
districts would lie able to attend and
formulate a permanent organization.
Copies of the minutes of the meetings
and of the committee's report and the
minutes of the meeting on Jan. 15th
will explain what has lieen effected up
to this date.
All that remains to lie done is to
secure representative delegates from
the various cities and districts of the
province for the purjiose of attending
the convention at Victoria on Feb.
25th. The successful organization of
the Provincial Mining Association of
British Columbia will ensure lietter
conditions for the mining industry,
aud thereby restore confidence in the
magnificent mineral resources of the
The first thing to lie doue in each
city and district is to call a meeting
as promptly as possible of all persons
interested in mining, and especially
of the practical working miners, mine-
owners, nierchants.farniers and others
whose business prosperity is affected
directly or indirectly by the prosperity of the mining industry, and let
each man sign the membership roll.
Each community is entitled to send
one delegate to every 20 members, "tr
one delegate in the case of a community of less than 20 memliers. The
chairman of each meeting will promptly send in the uames of all memliers
to the secretary.
The delegates' credentials will consist merely of a letter signed by the
chainnau and secretary of each local
bninch.certifyiiigthe number of members enrolled in each city or district,
and the names of the delegates ap*

of the new association will be settled

On his return to Vancouver from
Montreal last week, R. Marpole, general superintendent of the Pacific division of the C.P.R., announced a
million dollar programme. That sum
is to lie expended bv the company on
improvementa in tliis province. He
also announced tluit the Imperial
Limited is to run daily this season,
and that the 60 pound rails on the
line from Revelstoke to the coast are
to be replaced by SO pound rails.
Further, the big hill at Kicking Horse
is to be cut dowu and the Canadian
Pacific mav follow the Great Northern
example and build into the rich Situ
ilkamccii country. On that point
Supt. Marpole said: "The subject of
a branch into the Siinilkainei-u is receiving the earnest attention of tin*
management, I am strongly in favor
of tlie construe'ion of a branch south
from the main line at Silence's
Bridge, aa being quits* practiciible,and
the cost would lie reasonable."

Good news conies from the Payne

Acllna at Last.
Thb Drill had prepared a lieautif ul
roast this week on the attorney general's department for their tardiness in
attending to some business matters for
Slocan. .Some word of the Intended
roast must have reached the depart*
ment.for a telegram was received here
Wednesday night that the matter had
been fixed up. That demonslrates tlio
mighty influence exerted by this powerful and very high-falutin journal.
It is now going on for three
months since a request was sent to the
department asking for the cancellation
of bylaw No. 14, known as the mil)
aid bylaw, in which an error occurred.
The cancellation has now lieen made
and the council will get down to busi
ness at ouco and rush the bylaw
through, it being re-submitted to the
ratepayers at an early date. The Ion**
drawn" out question of the mill site
will lie brought to a close, and the
purchase of the property promptly
elTsvts'd.   Thi'iv  will  be a general
feeling of relief when the whole business is ended, as the mill company
will then have nothing to delay them

their extensive plans of construction. I;

praise of her lover—that incomparable lover, who was so clever, who
kiis-w so much, who did everything
so well, whose favorite study was
music! Stay—hs-re at last was the
slue to that haunting recollection !
He found himself listening- so intently to the weinl iliri.-i*-like minor nir,
linked in rs*citative with the words
"lie came lo deliver them who

"Substitute the word     'Discovery'

last waking vision was of a face,
white and sad, with dark eyes that
looked into his almost despairingly, "l'oor Kate." he thought, what
a contrast she is to Mary! Will the
devil keep her awake to-night, I
wonder? Sho is a strange. Incomprehensible girl; I wish she were
happier—poor Kate!"
On Friday morning, the carefully
prepared "Memorandn. of my
nrother's dealings with mo: and details of the sale for £0,000, of our
property in Braehead Street," were
closely examined. They Included an
exact account of the various sums
paid by Hichard to his brother ;
ending with the note of the 12CXI,
in exchange for which Alan had
agreed to resign all further claims
on their joint property. There was
no evidence among the mass ai
notes, newspaper cuttings and letters, to support Hichard s representation that the property had depreciated in value—tlie contrary s.-eiu-
ed to be the case but there was
proof that Richard had conclusled
the sale of thc houses for £6.000,
by private bargain, on the very day
that Alan consented to relinquish
his claim on them. How Alan
could have allowed himself to be so
duped, appeared almost incomprehensible: his negligence in looking into
his own atTairs, was only to be accounted for when his ill-health and
youth were taken into consider.itiuis
When John tied together ths- Memoranda before ret inning them to
their place, his opinion of Richard
Twiss had undergone considerable
change: it was destined to be still
further changed during the duy.
He succeedt-d beyond his expectations in finding among his acquaintances those who could enlighten him
as to the place occupied by Oavin
Wishart in the general esteem. Both
as r.-garded his public and his private life, this young man was held
to be altogether blameless, altsi-
geiher praiseworthy. Yet. while he
listens*d to the eulogies pronounced
bv on,- person after another, upon
Mary's lover, John felt a growing
piiy for him begotten of the conviction that Oavin, in spite of his
enviable position in thc worlsl s estimation, must constantly, through
fear of discovery, be subject to u
ds'grndmg and  intolerable  bondage
In the course of his inquiries John
also gleaned some further information concerning Twite; whereby his

by which he hoped

ther these means were
whether they would suffice, what he
should do in the event of their fuiling

his perplexities increase He was debating whether or no to dony himself to all visits.rs thai mglit. when
Twiss was announced.
That inspiring vision of the Finger
of    Providence,     by    which  Hichard
Twiss had been so much   encouraged
while he prepared to leave town on
Thursday, remained with him-   until
his   return   ou   Friday    During      his !
stay he experienced a delicious case |
of mind, his difficulties vanished one i
by     oue.     and     brilliant     prospects j
spread themselves before him He I
was able to look forward com- |
placently to the proposed meet ing
with Davin Wishart on Tuesday,
because he saw himself in Imagination purchasing Argentine iionds
in London on Monday. He even
mapped out for tbe new securities a
career of most successful duplicity.
Mental ease induced physical ease:
for a brief space of time lie enjoyed
complete immunity from fear, either
of loss or of pain.
Unfortunately the vision grew less
distinct as he returned to the city:
by the time he had reached lhe Central, it had almost deserted him.
John was not more bs*set by doubts
and dreads, thnn was his visitor.
Having met. the two men promptly exerted themselves to evasle ihe
ob.;ect of their meeting. They spoke
of the appearance of the country,
of the forward state of tl.e crops,
of possible danger to the harvest
from drought al present und from
tloods later on. They discussed the
Cooper's Mill firo and its attendant
disasters. John made particular inquiries aa to his companion's
health: Twiss, in his turn asked
whether Mr. Cayford Intended to remain long in Scotland.
"No," said John, T leave almost immediately. I sail from Plymouth next week."
A pause ensued. Each measured
his chances of success, and found
them small: each grew more resolutely determined to Obtain what
ho wanted, in some way.
"I have not forgotten our conversation in your ollice yesterday,"John
said at length. "Vou made a request
then which I promised to consider.
I have considered it."
Twiss leaned forward in his chair,
breathing with difficulty: he put
his hand to his heart, not because he
felt pain there, but because that horrible dread of pain, that parabzing
terror, hud begun to creep over him.
As in a lightning hash, he suddenly
saw what his position would he if
the money were denied to him: the
sight filled him with alarm, almost
with despair. He tried to speak, bul
his lips could scarcely  shape words.
"Your answer?" he munaged to
"I have a proposal to make to you
Mr. Twiss. I will not lend you the
money"—Kichard almost speased
breathing—"but you can have it it'
you will, on one condition."
"What condition?"
"Your brother hus told you of his
lnnocei.ee. He has told you thut I
hold tho proofs of it. and here they
are. I propos.*"" to exchange this
cheque, for your consent to the
destruction by mo of these pro.ifs before anyone but myself has seen
them. Will you take it?"
Twiss stared in amazement from
tho long strip sif paper held towarsl
him, to the bundle of papers on the
table, ninl to John's face He
had not thought twice of his brother's letter; salvation for himself
had not seemed to lie anywhere in
that direction. Dut clearly these
proofs were of importance! He tried
to rally his wils. His haml stole involuntarily out to the cheque.
"If Alan is innocent, who is guilty?" he asked,  hesitating.
"I have not the remotest intention
to teil you. Your brother left instructions that these proofs were to
be slii-An, not lo you al all, but to
a third person. Since I reached this
countr) certain facts have come to
my knowledge which lead me to believe that, had he known all I know,
Alan would have destroyed his papers before his death. I lake upon
myself the responsibility of acting as
I believe he would have wished me

Hichard swore; seized the packet
tendered to.liim, and departed.
"That kind of reptile," reflected
John, "must live in perpetual fear
of discovery he has perhaps grown
used to the bondage."
He sighed with relief at the
thought that he was now free to destroy the papers: yet he was far
from feeling altogether at ease in his
mind. Since he had announced his
intention to violate his promise to

become particularly binding.

Dusk was falling, a damp mist enveloped the city. John set light to
tho lire in his grate; the damp chilled him, and a fire would be useful.
Up leaped the flumes, shedding a
ruddy glare throughout the room!
He gathered together his papers—
Mary's picture being uppermost—
and drew his chair to the fire-sisle.
The glowing light illumined her face,
her lovely, happy face. No sorrow
must shadow it, no trouble must
conic to her that he could keep at a
There was a stir within the room,
Gavin  Wishart entered.
In three minutes lhe voung man
had said various graceful things in
a graceful way. He apologized for
his intrusion, expressed thanks for
the parcel of books brought from
Melbourne, regretted that his aunt
should have trespassed so largely
on Mr. Cay ford's good nature, and
alluded to Feldrossan as a place
where they had interests in common. John watched him, as he seated himself in the fire light, and failed to detect in his face any sign that
he was subject to a terrible bondage
through fear of discovery.
Tne firelight, glancing hero and
there, fell brightly on Mary's picture
and attracted flavin's notice to it.
He uttered an involuntary exclamation of surprise. John handed the
drawing to him.
"This is excellent indeed!" said
Wishart. "I hud no idea that you
were an artist."
"I am not: that was drawn by a
young friend of mine—Alan Twiss."
Gavin started so violently. that
the paper flew from his hand to tho
ground. John lifted it up. He hnsl
had one momentary glimpse of a face
disfigured by fear, thereafter he kept
his eyes fixed on the drawing in his
"Alan Twiss had rather a sad history," he said. "I met him as he
was on his way home from Melbourne: we traveled together as far
as Tenerife, where he died, just as
we were landing. He had left home
in ill health two years before, and
hud been accused of forgery after
he left. He had been successful in
collecting proofs of his innocence: he
was coming home to clear his name.
At Tenerife he expected to meet a
friend who could give evidence that
would incriminate the forger. I
learned that this friend of his was
already dead. ' Alan's proofs, however, were quite sufficient: he left
them in my hands, trusting to me to
see justice done. Three weeks ago I
came to Glasgow to curry out Jiis
wishes. There were delays. Tho
papers were to be handed to a Mr.
Anderson, who was absent from
town, I had to wait his return. He

The name of the forger was known
solely, solely, to Corbett, to Alan,
and to myself. Corbett und Alan are
now dead; and I hold all the proofs
in my hands, here. This is the forg-
s*d receipt. These are three letters
written by the forger to Corbett: tho
first one proves that the writer was
in nes-d of money; the second proves
that he was an adept In the art of

proves that he was with Corbett at

could not articulate another word,

The prolonged spell of glorious
weather which had lasted so long,
came to an end at length. The finest
June that had been known for
years, was succeeded by a stormy
July, the wind raged, the sea lashed
Itself into fury, wrecks strewed the
coasi, the newspaper columns wore
filled daily with lists of casualties
and disasters. At night time, Kate
would stand for hours by her window in a state ol wretched despair;
for the "Curlew" was nine days out
from England, and there was no
word yet of her arrival at Tenerife.
Kato watched inky masses of cloud
tear their way across the sky; she
looked lower, and saw whito surf
driven furiously upon the rocks. The
darkness that descended to blot
out all sighls, seemed to lend a
terrible Intensity to all sounds.
While Kate stared, wide-eyed, into
impenetrable blackness, all her senses
seemed to merge themselves into her
power of hearing. She listened to the
roar of the sea. the moaning and
wailing ot tho wind, until sound became an unendurable torture, and,
witli hands pressed tight against her
ears, she paced up and down her
room in misery.
Early one morning, the "Curlew"
floated gently into Santa Cruz Duy,
and lay at anchor there, safe from
the furious storm through which she
had passed. Culm and sunshine and
beauty greeted her; the burning wind
of noon-day had not risen. It was
the hour of mass. Spanish ladies,
who had not yet been driven by the
heat to Laguna, were on their way
to tho Iglesia do la Concepcion.
Their long black dresses and black
mantillas, contrasted strangely with
ihe brilliant colors worn by the
peasants, who trooped down the
Plaza to the Mole, bearing roses and
magnolias and oleanders—-peaches
and grapes and loquois, wherewith
tsi tempt the newly arrived passengers.
Two of these, landing at the Mole,
made their way as quickly as the
heat would allow, up the Flaza and
down the l alio Cruz Verde. Thev
followed the black robed ladies to
the Iglesia de la Concepcion, passed
that, crossed the bridge, and turned
from the Calle San Carlos into a
wide rough road, Hanked on one
side by a steep barranco. From this,
a sharp turn to the left brought them

was heard: it remained for long,

"Si, si," at intervals, although he
could understand very little of what
was said.

Oonitiilivl from Tha Oommeixlall
WHEAT—The past week hua been
one of exceeding interest in the
wheat trade, us it has seen the dsi-
veiopmeiit of Armour's operations on
the Chicago board of trade, in buying up a big line of contract wheat
for May delivery, and at the end of
the week the Armour company was
credited wltb owning something like
22,000,000 bushels of May wheat in
that market, while at present tbe
stock of contract wheat in public elevators in Chicago is less than 4,-
000,000. Hence there has been an
advance iu Chicago May wheat of Uc
on the week, and this has bad a sympathetic hifluence on all markets.
There is seen an advance In other
markets of j lo ljc. Want of rain
on the Pacific eoust bus been detrimental to the advance of the California crop. Severe weather ln Europe has caused depreciatory reports
of the winter wheat crops over there,
More rain is needed for the Indhui
crop, the grain deteriorating owing
to unfavorable weather for harvesting and threshing in lhat country.
Some reports have come from France
as lo the necessity of replowing and
sowing Holds thut have been killesl
by severe weather. Along with tbis
then, is a fulling off in the world's
shipments, and a comparatively
heavy decrease in visible stocks, and
at the suinc time a gootl demand for
Cash wheat nl firm prices, showing a
consumptive di'innnd. which is very
encouraging to holders of whe.it. After the recent good advance it will
be reasonable lo expect some reaction in prices, but it is evident that
whi at is good properly at the pn'.s-
rnt timo, and should any serious
Widespread damage occur to growing
ing crops the situation wouisl be
favorable to higher prices later on.
•The Manitoba wheat, marki't has
been for the most part quiet for the
week. Exporters cannot follow the
United States markets closely on thc
present rise, and on the week prices
only show J to lc advance. There
has, bowever, been a good business

That ls Why Some People Cannot sUet Rid
of m Cough, and Why lt Develops Into
'lie lungs are Just like any other
I 011 ion of the body—they need a
constant supply of pure, rich blood
to keep them sound and strong. If
Lb. lungs are not strong they are unable to resist disease, ati-l that is
llui reason why an apparently simple
cold clings until the patient grows
ttsoKcr and weaker, and liually Wis
u 1 ousumptive'.H grave. Ur. Williams'
J 'Oil. l'ills never fail to strengthen
lin- lungs, because they make the
i.ew rich, red blood, which alone can
do lliis work. The most emphatic
pn.of that Dr. Williams' Pink Fills
re-l'siild the lungs and curs* consumption ;n its earlier stages is given in
111** iase of iliss Blanche l'yrund, of
St. 1 .dinond, Que. Miss iiurand says;
"in 1 he month of September, luul,
i was visiting at tlu* home of an
Ui.cle al L'ASsomptlon. une day we
weie out boating; 1 got my feet wet
and caught cold. The cold seemed
tc. fling to me and when I returned
home about the end of September, 1
wus quite ill. 1 wus quite feverish.
'.i'i1. no appetite, and the inugh seemed ' o exhaust me. I began doctoring, 'mt did not get any belter, and
In .'1 -unary, 1903, the doctor told me
that my lungs were affected, and
thai I was in consumption. Al this
tiiii..' a friend who had come to see
lue advised me to try Or. Williams'
Vi nl; Fills, and 1 sent for six boxes,
The pills soon began to help mo, as
little by little the cough grew less
s,'\i'ie, my appetite became better,
uy strength returned and 1 began to
have a healthy color. I used eight
boxes of the pills, and was then fullv
recovered. I am sure Dr, Williams
I'ink l'ills saved my life, and 1 shall
always Speak gratefully  of  them."
