Andy Broadm.in came into town
Monday with a bear cub, which he
had captured that day back of his
ranch, near Lemon creek, And
thereby hangs a talc. Andy went
a-,- uniting on Sunday i nd stayed out
all night, hoping to get a shot at a
bear of mature age. Next morning
at daybreak lie stumbled on to a bear
picnic, but the old ones waited not
for an Introduction and scootod,while
the juvenile climbed a tree. Andy
cooiicd up after him, but the cub sallied out on n limb beyond roach,
Hero was a predicament. Then a
brilliant thought occurred to Andy.
He took out one of his shoe laces,
made a noose, and with a long slick
soon had bruin, Junior, In limbo.
Then the scratching commenced A
second brilliant, thought then asserted
itself, for Andy wanted that cub.
Taking off his jeans, Andy shoyed
the cub into thotn and tied him up,
safe and sound. Andy then shinned
down the Wee with his precious burden. Next followed a two mile
tramp to tho cabin, the one in High*
land costume,the other expostulating
with energy. Bruins, senior, regarded not the plaintive cries for succor
from their captured offspring, hav*
ing a healthy fear and respect for the
captor'8 prowess as a huntsman. Ach!
vot cowards dose bears va's! Andy
has tho cub now corralled ai the Arlington hotel, while he goes prospecting for a buyer.   •
In Memoriam.—Alas 1 and aday 1
The ad vantages of civilization proved
too overpowering and poor little junior is no more. Ho went and died,so
he did.   Requicscat.
Republic Wagon Road li Now Well Under
Grading commenced this week on
the wagon road leading to the Republic group, and is progressing in a
rapid and satisfactory manner. Tlie
right of way has b**en cut for a little
more than half tho distance, while
the graders have accomplished about
a mile of the v ay. Rut the hardest
part, embracing the switchbacks and
entailing considerable rock work,
lies before tho men, which will not
permit of rapid headway. Tlie road
when completed will run to thc new
workings at tho mine which are to
be commenced just at tlie cabins.
The old road at this end is causing
some apprehension, as to build a new
piece In order to maintain a uniform
grade would entail an additional
costff 530JO. With the starting cf
grading the force has been increased
to 25 men.
At the mil e it is the intention lo at
at once enlu ge tlie force emplovid,
as the management is anxious to get
development in full swing in order to
commence shipping when the road is
completed. Work will be started in
a number of places and the property
opened to the best advantage. Several members of tlie Slocan-Kepn blic
Co., as well as Sthci'8 connected with
the Sapphire, will visit ttrs place in
Augim and will inspect the several
claims under their control.

Prospects dally grow brighter for
the Dominion day celebration to be
held here, and thc assurances arc
that there will be a big attendance
from the mines and neighboring
towns. The executive committee
has been rustling pretty strong during tho week and have added more
subscriptions to tho geneial fund.
Bills announcing the. celebration
bave been printed and posted up in
every burg in the district, while each
mine lias been duly notified of the
fun in sight.
The great drawing card will be
the drilling match, and it is certain
half a dozen teams at least will compete. At the Arlington mine in particular tne men are putting in their
spare time practicing for the event,
and thc whole force will be down to

will put up a great game, and »ill
prove a third attraction. Outsiders
generally are looking forward to the
celebration, as is evidenced by the.
requests of various sporting bodies
for a place on tho programme. The

Tho new Elmore process of oil concentration of ores ap-iears, judging
'iotn the numerous tests made, to
promise great 'tilings. Teats made
on thc low grade ore of one of the
Ltoasland mines gave thc following
reinltsi The concentrates by tho nil
process contained 6 OS per cent of
.•upper, while, concentration by water
gave only 2.G per cent.the silver nnd
gold contents being proportionately
higher, and the tailings showing
much higher recovery in tbs caso of
the oil than by tho water concentration. Preliminary tests by this process on ores froln tlie Snowshoe mine,
in the Boundary camp, hnve also
proved satisfactorv, and it is vary
probable that several Elmero plants.
will ere long be in operation in lhe
Rossland and Boundary districts. In
this camp some of the ores have, be«u

sulls generally have been satisfactory. It it altogether likely an Elmore plant will lie established in tho

some of tbe high fliers,

Tbe assembly was held twice a week,
on Thnrsday and on .Friday. It wu on
Thursday night tbat a certain statement was made In a dranken conversation which might bave awakened sos-
ptctoo of somt dark design had lit been
recorded.   A small company of the said
high fliers, among whom were Colonel
Lanyon and a yonng man named Tom
Rising, msrcbed off to the tavern most
frequented by tbem sifter the "-losing of
the rooms end called for punch, cards
and candles.   Tben they sat down to

Tom Rising's estates lay near Swaff-
ham. Be was well known as tbe best
and most fearless rider In the whole
county. Be waa the keenest sportsman. He knew where to find fox,
hare, badger, ferret, stoat or wesseL
Be knew where to put up a pheasant
or a covey of partridges. Be could play
at all manly sports. Be was a wild, fearless, reckless, debosbed young fellow,
whom everybody loved and everybody
abated, always ready wltb a blow or an
oath, afraid of notblng If be set hla

that he set his heart upon one thing
and failed. Tom lost heavily and drank
"I win play tin I hare stripped every

said. "Why do I say this? Because,

"He means tbe hasaid table,1* said
"No, not the hazard table." Tom
went on. "Oh, I know the table and

Bo they left him sleeping In his
chair, with his bead on tbe table
among the glasses and tbe split punch.
The next was tbe night of the assembling, and Molly was present
After dancing with bis lordship, who
tben offered his band to a lady of tbe
county, she stood up wltb Tom Rising,
wbo was by tbls time as sober aa could
be expected after sucb a night Be, In
the bearing of everybody, loaded her
wltb compliments of tbe common kind,
such as would suit a milkmaid, but
were not proper for a modest woman
to bear. To these, however, Molly returned no reply and danced as If sbe
heard them not Bhe then rejoined
Lady Anastasia and with ber retired to
the cardroom, whither many of tbe
young men followed her. Sho stood
beside ber ladyship and obliged tbe
young men by choosing cards for them,
which they lost or won. Tom Rising
followed ber and stood beside ber wltb
flushed face and trembling hands. It
was remarked afterward that be seemed to assume the care of ber. Be kept
gazing upon Molly wltb fierce and ravenous looks like a wolf wbo hungers
after his prey and lives to wait for It
Be played tbe while, however, and lost
during the evening, I believe, some
hundreds of pounds, but for reasons
which you will presently bear be never
paid tbat money.
Molly next had a second dance wltb
his lordship. After It bad been finished
be offered ber the refreshment of wine
or chocolate, but sbs declined, saying
that tbe captain now would be wishing
her to go home and tbat her chair
would be waiting.
Bo his lordship led ber to tbe door,
where Indeed ber chair was waiting.
but bo c&ptaln. and, bowing low. he
handed her in and shut the door, and
be returned to the assembly, and Molly's chnlr was Immediately lifted up
ond born* rapidly away, she sitting
alone, thinking of tbe evening and of
her great triumph, suspecting no evil
and thinking of no danger
A minute later the captain came to
the door. There be saw Molly's chairmen waiting with her chair. Ite look*
ed about blm. Where was Molly? He
returned to the assembly; the girl was
not there. He looked Into tbe cardroom:
his lordship wns standing at the table,
looking on. "My lord." snld tbe cap-
win lu confusion, "where Is my ward?"
"Miss Molly? Wby. captain. I pot
her Into ber chair Ave mlnutee ago.
She is gone."
"Ber cbnlrr The captain turned pile.
•*ner chair la now at the door with ber
"Wbat devilry is forward T cried
.Lord Fyllngdale. "Come with me,
captain. Come wlfb me."
The chair into which Molly stepped
will-out suspicion snd without even
looking for tbe captain, wbo sliould
have walked beside ber. stood, as I
i.nve said before, nt the entrance of the
tsing room. Outside tlie trees were
hung with colored lamps; the place
•vita as bright as In tbe sunshine of
uiMtn. One would think that nothing
-•ould be done In sucb a place which
would not be observed. There la however, one thing which Is never observed-It Is tbe pen-tonal appearance
of servants. No one regards the boatman of the ferry or the driver of tbe
hackney coach or tbe --oatlioy or the
chairman. Tbe chair, theu. stood wltb
ita door open opposite to the entrance
of the long room. The chairmen stood
retired, a little In tbo shade, but not
so far off as to need calling, wben
l-ord Fyllngdale handed In the lady.
This done, be stood, bat In hand,
bowing. The chairmen stepped op
briskly, seised the poles aud marched
off with tbe quick step of those who
have a light burden to carry. No one
observed tbe faces of tbe chairmen,
or Indeed tbougbt of looking at tbem;
no one remarked the fact that Tom
Rising walCed out of the long room directly afterward and followed the
ehalr. Wltbln Molly sat unsuspecting,
excited by tbe triumphs of tbe evening.
The chair paased through the gardens
nnd lu gates. Instead of turning to tbe
right wblcb would lead Into Uaymau's
lane, tbe chairmen turned to tbe left
nnd so through tbe town gate and beyond tbe wall and Into tbe open fields.
Yet Molly observed notblng. 1 tblnk
she fell asleep. When shoes me to her*
f-elfTshe looked out of tbe window. On
tbe right and on tbe left of her were
open fields.
It was a clear evening. Toward the
mldtlle of May tbere Is no black dark*
ness. but only a dimmer outline, wltb
deeper shadowa. Molly, who knew tbe
country around I.ynn perfectly well,
understood at* onoe tbat ahe had been
curried outside the town: tbat she was
uo longer on tbe highroad, but on one
of the cross tracks—one cannot call
tbem roads—whieh connect tbe villages, so tbat tbere waa very little
chance of meeting any passengers or
vehicles. And by tbe stars sbe saw
tbst they were carrying her In a northerly direction, perhaps to South Wool*-
She perceived, therefore, that soma
devilry was going oa Now sbe was
not s girl wbo would try to belp herself In sucb a deserted and lonely spot
by shrieking, nor did she see tbat any

carried away witbout the knowledge of

the abduction was nothing more or less
than s forced marriage and tbe acquisition of ber fortune. "Jack." she told

besides, that there would be a hue and

Perhaps I might barricade myself. Perhaps ray bodkin might belp me to save

even a frying pan would do.   Wbat-

There are found scattered about the

Inns for the accommodation of persons
of the baser sort
It was before sucb a wayside Inn
that the chairmen stopped. Molly knew
It very well. It was at a puce called
Hlkley's Spring. Tbe name or the
house was the Traveler's Rest and it
stood Just two miles and a half from
Lynn aad one mils or so from the village of Booth Wo-rttem It was a small
.house, gloomy stud IU lighted at tbe
best Tbere was a door In the middle.
The diamond panes ot tho windows
were mostly broken la their leaden
frames; tbe woodwork was decaying;
tbe upper floor, projecting, darkened
the lower noma. In the dim twilight,
when the cbalr stopped, tbe house looked a dark and noisome place, fit only
for cutthroats and murderers.
The poles wero withdrawn aad the
door thrown open. Molly, looking out
saw before her, hat la hand, her late
partner, tbe young fellow they called
Tom Rising. *
"Oh," she cried, "la It possible? I
thought I was ln the hands of some
highwayman. Is this your doing, sir?
I was told that you were a gentleman."
Be bowed low and began a little
speech which he bad prepared ln readiness.
"Madam, yoo' will confess that you
are yourself alone to blame. Fired wltb
the sight of so much loveliness, what
wonder If I aspired to possess myself
of these charms? Sure, a Laplander
himself would be warmed even In his
frozen region by such"—
"Sir. wbat nonsense la this? What
do you -lean?"
*T mean, madam, that your lovely
face and figure abould be sufficient excuse not only in the eyea of tho world,
but In your own eyes, for an action
such as thla Tbe violence of the passion which"—
"Sir, will you order your fellows to
take me back?"
"No, madam; I will not"
"Then, air, will you tell mo what you
propose to do?"
"I Intend to marry you.1*
"Against my consent?"
"I bave you In my power. I shall,
however, ask your consent If you
grant It we sball enter upon married
life as a pair of lovers should. If you
refuse, I shall be the master, but you
will be tbe wife."
Molly laughed. "Too tblnk that I
am afraid? Very well, sir. If you per
slat, you shall bave a lesson In love-
making that will cost your Ufa"
/'Everything Is fair tn love. Come,
madam, you will please to get out of
the cbalr."
"Wbat a villain la thlsl" ssid Molly.
"He Is In love witb my fortune, and he
pretends It Is my person. Be thinks
to steal my fortune when he runs away
wltb me. Ton are a highwayman, Mr.
Rising, a common thief and a common
robber. Ton shall be hanged outside
Norwich castle."
Tom Rising swore a great onth, calling. In his blasphemous way, upon the
Lord to Inflict dire pains snd penalties
upon blm If be should resign the lovely
object of bis affection now In bla possession. Ton have beard tbat he had
tbe reputation of a reckless daredevil
wbo stuck at nothing, was daunted by
nothing and was like % bulldog for bis
"Understand, madam," be concluded
tbla declaration, "I am resolved to
marry you—resolved. Bear tbat In
"And I, sir. am resolved tbat I will
not marry you—resolved. Bear that
In mind."
"Never yet did I resolve upon anything but I had It  No; never yet"
"Mr. Rising, you think you bave me
In your power. Ton sball see. Once
more I ask yon, as a gentleman, to
send me back. Renetnber, I have many
friends. The whole town, high and
low, will be presently out after me,
scouring tie country In every direction."   .
"In an bour you w'll be at WootteA
The parson hath profntsea to await ua
there. Tou shall be my wife within
one short bour."
"You waste words, sir."
"Tou will bave tc alight, madam.
The post chaise Is here to carry us to
Wootten, where tbe parson watts to
marry us. In an hour, I say, you shall
bo my wife."
Molly looked out of tbe otber window. Tbe post chaise was there wltb
Its pair of horses and tbe postboy waiting at the horses' heads. Sbe would
have to make her stand at once, therefore. To get Into the post chaise wltb
that man would be dangerous, even
though she was as strong as himself,
and, since sho was not a drinker of
wine, abe waa In better condition.
"I looked round nt tbe bouse," she
told me afterward. "I tbougbt that If
I could get Into tbe house I might gain
some time—perhaps I could bar the
door, perhaps I could find that griddle
or the frying pan of which I spoke.
Or If It came to using tbe bodkin there
would bs more room for my arm In a
house than In a chair or n -"balse. So I
had one more parley In order to gain
time and then slipped out."

Suffered From Headaches and Dizziness—Could Not Stand the
Least' Exertion.
From the Sun, Seat or th, Ont.
Mrs. Wm. Westcott is well known
to nearly all the residents of Bea-
forth. It is also well known to her
neighbors and friends that she passed through a trying illness, but is
now, happily, in robust health, lo
the editor of the Sun, Mrs. Westcott
recently gave the particulars of her
case for publication, merely in the
hope tbat her experieuco might be of
some benefit to some other sufferer.
She said : "For some time past my
health was in a bad state my whole
system being badly run down, i waa
troubled with headache, much dizziness, my uppetite was poor and I
could not stand the least exertion. I
consulted different physicians, Ont
their treatment did not seem to benefit me, and I gradually became so
bad that I was unable to attend to
my household duties. I then tried
several advertised medicines, but
without any benelicial results, and 1
began to despair* of getting better.
One of my neighbors strongly advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and somewhat reluctantly 1
consented to do so. After I hud
taken the second box I began to note
a great improvement in my condition, and by the time I had used live
boxes I was fully restored to my
former good health, much tvt. the surprise of my neighbors and relations.
I do not suffer the ls3ast now from
those headaches and dizzy spells; my
appetite is good and I can attend to
my household duties with the greatest ease, ln fact, I feel like a different woman, and all this f can say is
due to the use of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. All who suffer from a rundown constitution should givo those
pills a trial."
When the vitality is low; when the
blood needs to be replenished, enriched and purified ; when the nerves
are weak and require strengthening,
there is no other medicine ean take
the place of Dr. Williams' Pink l'ills.
It is because of their direct specific
action on the blood and nerves that
these pills cure such troubles as
anaemia, nervous heartache, dizziness, palpitation of the heart, rheumatism, sciatica, partial paralysis,
St. Vitus' dance, kidney and liver
ailments and the functional troubles
that make the lives of so many women a source of almost constant
misery. Do not take any but the
genuine, which have the full name
"Dr. Williams' Pink Tills for Pale
People," on thc wrapper around
every box. Sold by all dealers, or
sent post paid at 50 cents a box or
six boxes for $2.50, by addressing

His Praise of Dodd's Kidney Pills
tho Remedy Which Has Done So
Much For Him.
St. Mzear, Que., June 2.—(Special)
It is a well known characteristic of
our French Canadian people that
they are fearless and enthusiastic in
their praise of anything or anybody
that has befriended them.
No one is more capable of more
gracefully expressing gratitude than
the average French gentleman.
A recent case illustrates this point.
Mons. Jean Boivue has for many
years boon alllicted with a terrible
malady of the kidneys.
Ho suffered a very great deal of
pain, and his disease forced him to
rise every hour during the night.
He was advised to use Dodd's Kidney Pills, and after taking a short
treatment, found himself completely
His gratitude knew no bounds,and
ever since he has recommended to all
his friends the wonderful remedy
which cured him so promptly und
When he finds anyone who has no
confidence in them, his first act Is to
give tbem some pills, and explain to
them how to use them, and he has
found this method very soon convinces tho most skeptical of thetrulh
of tho statement he makes that
Dodd's Kidney Tills are the greatest
mediciin> in the world.
.....Mmis. Boivue saysl/*-^.^,	
"Dodd's "Kidney- Pills are good.
---"I know this because while at one
time   I   suffered  very  severely ...(rom
Kidney Disease, now I am well.
"Not long ago I used to have to
get up several times during the
night, now 1 can sleep well all night
without rising.
"You can believe me, I am glad to
have regained my health, and I say
thanks a thousand times to Dodd's
Kidney Pills."
