In common witli al! towns in Brit

pineli of quiet times in business circles,  yet in the  mining  world tho
local division never had  moro work
going on nor never bad so promising
a future.   In contrast to the state ol
affairs existing   a   year  ago,   1901
shows a wonderful advancement and
there is no disti.ctin tbe province
that is exhibiting a more solid growth
and expansion.   Twelve months ago
there was no Arlington wagon roail,
Lemon creek road, Chapleau mill, or
Arlington sawmill.   The Spt culator,
Iron Horse,  Tamarac, Phoenix or V
&. M mines were not working, while
the forces at the Arlington and other
mines were very small.   Today, in
elusive of outsitle   workers   at  the
mines, there are upwards of 200 men
working in the camp, with the certainty of a heavy increase when the
snow goes off.    The various proper-
tie? look better than   they have ever
done and the reserves of ore in Bight
are greater.   The  past winter has
been the heaviest shipping season on
record and the camp approaches the
summer  season    i* ith    remarkable

Since 1S35 all the machines by which
postage stamps are canceled and envelopes marked with the name of the
postoflice, tlie date, etc., have been
made by one family. In the year named the postmaster jieneral entered Into
a contract with Benjamin Chambers, a
citlzeu of Washington, to furnish a
device by which postage Stamps might
lie canceled so that they could not be
•used again, and, although there have
been a multitude of competitors on several occasions, that contract has been
renewed year nfter yenr for C5 years
•-.•iti) Mr. Chambers, his son and his
grandson, who have a secret process
by which the dies are made of malleable Iron and carbonized Into steel at a
cost of from 30 es'iits to $1\75 each,
lt Is certainly the only government
contract nnd probably the only contract In the United States that has
been renewed so often and continued
so long. The department buys about
{Sri.OOO worth of new eancelers every
year. Bids nre advertised for annually,
and every now and then some ambitious manufacturer who thinks he has
a good thing offers a proposal, but the
Chambers family are invincible. They
have Improved the device until It is
now almost perfect.
The stamper Is a circular east steel
box with n screw thread, one end of
which Is closed, nnd is provided on
the outside witli a square shank to
secure it to the hard wood handle. The
cover of the box Is a disk of steel. A
portion of Its thiclcness enters the boi
by menns of a screw thread around Its
periphery of almost 20 threads to the
Inch. Tills permits of n space between
the Inner face of the die and the bottom of thc box. while the remaining
thickness of the disk forms a flange
with the edge, which Is conrse milled,
so that the disk may be turned wltb
the hand or a wrench. On the outer
face of the disk are clinracters of the
body of the cylindrical die. These combine the marking and the canceling
devices, one being on one side of the
disk. Inclosing tlie name of the post-
office in n circle. There are three slots
for removable type, for months, dates,
hour and half hour. Diametrically opposite the circle is the canceling device,
the side of which Is parallel with the
edge of the disk. Any required number or letter is cut in relief In the center, while three grooves are cut Intaglio. The removable types are of
steel and have on the ends opposite
their faces projections from their outer
edges, so that when inserted In the
slots the projections can he clamped
and held in place.
Until 1SS0 Captain Chambers manufactured the eancelers here in Washington, and he is still required to nialu-
tnln a repair shop in the neighborhood
of the postofflce department, but he
moved his factory to Northumberland
county. Va.. on n leg of land at the
mouth of the Potomac, where he has a
tittle village composed exclusively of
his employees and their families. No
one can enter his grounds without permission, and those who have been
there say it is quite an Ideal little village, safe from the spies of competitors who would like to get the contract away from him.— Washington

Writing of the savings banks and their
depositors in The Century, Richard
Boughtou tells of the embarrassment
sometimes caused to bank officials by dishonest patrons.
'Ibe great bulk of depositors, perhaps
ii.*! per cent, are of the laboring classes,
the weekly wage earners; then coine the
middle ond well to do class, sny 30 per
cent, and lastly the very rich man and
the criminal in about espial proportions.
By criminal I do not mean to confine this
class to bonk burglars, check forgers and
bank note counterfeiters—you will see
ull of these If you watch the line long
enough—but I include nil those men and
women who avoid police notice when
they can and nre occasionally "wanted"
at police headquarters, the rich keeper
of the fashionable gambling house, the
woman who is suspected of knowing the
whereabouts of a vanished thief or
forger, the man who never breaks Into a
bank himself, but takes a friendly and
patronly interest in those who do, and
so on up and down the scale of cosmopolitan vice. At one time or another
they ail have savings bank accounts. It
seems incomprehensible, but people of all
these classes nre frequent, even permanent depositors. I do not say this from
hearsay, but have seen examples ot each
of them lodging their money even in
their own names.
What can you do with these people
when they como to deposit? It is not
criminal to save money, and you cannot
arrest them. In some cases their accounts are closed by the banks, and they
are told to tako themselves off, a hint
upon which they promptly and quietly
net. possibly from fear of the police, accustomed as they are to obey when told
to "move on."
Some of them, however, are not easily
got rid of. A famous confidence woman
had ber account in a New York bank,
and her quiet demeanor, amiable smile,
inuocent, almost girlish timidity, quite
won tbe chief official in charge. He was
accustomed to call her aside politely from
the somewhat rough crowded line, give
her a chair in the anteroom and send her
passbook and money by one of the clerks
to the receiving teller. Her identity
was finally discovered through a police
inquiry at the bank, and the next time
she called the old gentleman offered her
not a chair, but her passbook with her
deposits in full. The "poor young thing"
swore at him like a trooper. It was quit'
necessary to call In the mora! Infiuencu
of the porter, displaying his "special
deputy" badge, before Miss Innocent
made less noise nnd took herself nnd her
deposits out of the bnnk, giving the old
gentleman a parting shot at tbe doorway.
The president and managing officials
of a leading bank once debated long nnd
seriously whether they should inform
the authorities that just after a famous
burglary three men nnd two women had
deposited $8,000 each in new bank bills
that possibly were a portion of those that
had recently been stolen in transit between tbe two banks. It was a question
whether the suspicion would justify this
action, which of course woultl become
public, perhaps get into the uewspapers
and some illiterate depositors might hear
the story with a new twist given to it;
not that burglars had put money into
the bank, but had been in and bad taken
some out The result would be a run.
It was finally decided to do nothing, at
least for tbe time. Soon afterward the
thieves—for such tbey were—relieved the
bank's perplexity. Two of tbe men nnd
the two women came in singly, but in a
burry, drew the full amount that was in
their names and made off. The fifth of
tbe party did not return until years afterward, wben a man with cropped hair,
an unconscious lockstep holt in bis walk
and other evidences of having been temporarily retired from society called and
drew the deposit that had slumbered
while he was "doing time up the river."

If a goose weighs ten pounds and s

The correct answer Is 20 pounds. It is

will sometimes catch a wise man napping.
The following will nearly always succeed:

Kept His Promise.
Some years ago Mark Twain was elected a member of a prominent Grand Army
post in Maryland, and be promised to be
present at tbe annual meeting and make
an address. It was an opportunity for
tbe people of Baltimore to deluge him
with hospitality, and a committee was
formed to take charge of him for a hig
reception as soon as be was through with
his speech at the banquet. This speech
wns one of the best he ever delivered, aud
It put tbe crowd In roars of laughter.
But he did not attend the reception.
The explanation he gnve almost brought
tears to the eyes of those who received it.
His daughter was critically ill In Hartford. He would not break big engagement with tbe Grand Army post, but tbe
reason be did not attend the reception
also was that within a few minutes after
he had conduced bis address be was taking tbe first train home.

Morley,  Ont.,  April 8. (Special)
Nelson Leflar, Justice of tho Peace of
this place, vouches for tho truth of
the following interesting story, told
by Mrs. Thomas Hughes.
Verification, however, will not be
necessary to those who know Mrs.
Hughes, as that lady is one of the
most highly respected residents of
Grey County.   Mrs.  Hughes says :—
"I was a great sufferer for four
yours.. I wm treated by four doctors, nnd a specialist from the United States. I tried nearly every kind
of mtsdicinc I could hear of, but none
seemed to do me any good.
"I was in bod for nearly three
years. I had pains in rny spinal column, in my head, over my eyes,
across my back, through my left
side, and occasionally in n:y right
"For three nights at a lime, I
would never close my eyes m sleep.
I was terrlhly bloat-.id, so that I
could not sit up or walk. My iige
was 41 when I was taken sick;
"I have taken in all fourteen bo.*u*s
Hodd's Kidney Pills, and now I u:n
strong, and able to do as good a
day's work, as I have ever been. The
doctors said I had Rheumatism. They
suid that nothing could be done fOr
"I was not able to eat anything,
only corn starch or soup of some
kind. My weight had increased from
112 to 147 pounds. I um now down
to my normal weight again. I can
never, say enough for Dodd's Kidney
Pills, for I am satisfied that they
saved my life."
There are many ladies suffering as
Mrs. Hughes did, although but few
may be as low ns sho was.
Deranged kidneys are responsible
for ulmost nil the trouble that comes
to women in middle life, and no woman can alTord to be careless, when
her kidneys are in tiny way threat-
What cured Mrs. Hughes of this
very bad ense will cure any case.

remedy that ever cured Brigbt's Disease, Diabetes, or Dropsy, and they

Several old acquaintance* of the late
D. II. McAJpln. the tobacco manufacturer, were discussing his business success In an up town club, and one of
them told the following story ns Illustrating the fnrreachiug effect of comparatively Insignificant things sometimes.
"It was after Mr. MeAlpln was well
started In the tobacco business," he
said, "that an enterprising rival began
to cut Into his business by advertising
that he placed a dime In every tenth
package of tobacco put up In his factory. Ono day a foreman of the packing room went to Mr. McAlpIn and
"'I have a suggestion to make that
promises to knock out this dime In every tenth package scheme of your rival.
Will you hear It?'
"'Yes; go ahead.'
" 'Well, then, Just put a dime In every package of tobacco put up In our
shop and don't advertise It It will advertise Itself quickly enough.'
"Mr. McAlpIn saw that tho suggestion wns good, and he accepted It. It
cost him a good deal of money, but Its
success warranted It. Within a few-
weeks farmers were buying McAlpIn
tobacco, knowing that they would find
money In each package, ond If they
had found diamonds It would not hove
surprised tbem."

He Claims Cooked Pood Is the Greats'*st Curae of Hnmanltr and Bar* It
Shortens Life and Hake* TJs Moral
■nd riiyalritl Dcsteneratesi.
As o result of ray own experiences and
of tests made by other persons at my di
rectiou and under my observation I am
firmly convinced that cooked food is the
greatest curse of humanity. I hold that
cooked food is responsible for nearly all
tho great pcsu.^Dces, contagious diseases
aud other bodily ills, that it shortens life
generally, that it causes crimes and
makes people moral degenerates as well
as physical degenerates ami that it heaps
untold misery upon the world by so greatly increasing the cost of living as to
biiug hunger aud want into the land and
cause millions to toil their lives away for
the mere sake of eking out an existence.
I will wager all the success I expert to
obtain in saving mankind from the disastrous effects of taking dead cells into
their systems on the assertion that any
person who for 00 slays will give raw
food a test will at the end of that time
decline lhat he uever felt belter hi his
life, that lie is of a happier disposition,
that his mind is clearer aud that he is
improved in all respects.
A child raised ou uncooked footl will be
a giant, physically and* intellectually.
There is no d'i'ibt that the ancienla lived
longer than sve and that the average life
of maq is gtowing shorter ull the time
from no other cause than the continuous
injurious effects being wrought by cooked
fend ou the human race.
It was uever Intended that any living
thing should derive substantial sustenance from that which has been destroyed, [food whim cooked is destroyed. It
is the mission of lire to destroy.
We take into our bodies slead cells to
replace the wornout cells cast off from
the lnitly. Man. with his superior intelligence, sliould live much longer in the
time that it taken him to develop than
any other animal. Instead there is nothing that breathes that doesu't live five
times as long as man proportionately.
By eating natural food health, as with
the lower animals, would he the rule untl
i.l health the exception.
i bad reached BO .vents of age.    My
height was "j feet H inches, my weight
":._ pounds. I bad been atliictcd v.ith
kiduey trouble from youth. 1 contracted

1 miffered from s.-iatic rheumatism in
my left hip and thigh. My heasl was always full nf dandruff: my finger uaiis
w re short and brittle.
With these afllietions 1 was looked
upon by most people as a healthy man.
I myself slid not realise in what a terrible condition 1 was until I bail tasted the
joy*; s,f ps'rfeet hs'altb. In two years
raw footl diet reduced me to normal
weight. My kidney complaint vanished
the moment I removed the continuing
cause and commenced ta live on raw diet.
Within six days after beginning my
new diet my rest was the most refreshing it had L.s*en in seven years. The t!au-
tlre.fi' disappeared from my head, the ec-
tenia was speedily cured, ths* rheumatism
remained with me (os- 00 days, but finally
i,i:cciimbs'ii to the grs*at natural tonic.
My ti'Cth became remarkably firm and
bard. The calcareous deposits throughout my whole system have been loosened
e.p and earned awny by the pure water
1 have taken into my system, either in
eating the diet of raw foml or absorbed
from the atmosphere.
Since knowing of my own personal e*c-
perlence these remarkable blessings rrnm
eating raw food I have mads' it my mis-
sinn in life to endeavor with what means
ami energy I possess to convert the
world intss my practice. All I ask of tiny
pcr>o:i Is to (jive it it test.
A.-* (0 what kind of raw footls yttu eat
It doesn't make much difference unless
suffering from some especial ailment
Anything that is gootl cooked is better
raw. By giving the diet tl test you will
t.iul in a short time that you enjoy your
meals more than you ever did before. Al-
nissst shy disease may be ciirttl by ealiuj;

Depressed Had ' Out   t torts."
The words "weak and depressed"
expresses thc condition of thousands
of people in the spring time. It is
ono of nature's signs that humanity
cannot undergo months of indoor life
in badly ventilated buildings with
impunity. Sometimes you have a
headache; slight exercise fatigues you;
your appetite is variable ,* you are
easily irritated or depressed ; perhaps there are pimples or slight eruptions that indicate the blood needs
attention. Whatever the symptom
may be it should be attended to ai
once, else you will fall an easy prey
to graver disease. Do not use a purgative In the hope that it will put
you right. Any doctor will toll you
that purgatives weaken,that they impair tlie action of tho liver and create chronic constipation. A tonic is
what is needed to help nature fight
your battle for health, and there is
only one always reliable, never-failing tonic, and that is Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Tluse pills have ho purgative action. They make rich, red
blood, strengthen tho tirexl and jaded
nerves, and make weak, depressed,
easily tired people, whether old or
young, bright, active and strong.
Among those who have proved the
health-bringing qualities of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is Miss Emma Cha-
put, of Lake Talon, Ont., \vh>. says;
"I cannot thank you enough for the
good X have derived through tho use
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I honestly believe that but for them 1
would now be in my grave. My
health was completely broken down,
my face as white as chalk, and if
I made the least effort to do any
housework I would almost faint from
the exertion, and my heart woultl
beat violently so that I feared 1
would drop where I stood. I was
a great sufferer from headaches and
dizziness as well, and my appetite
was so poor that I scarcely ale at
nil. I tried several medicines, but
they did not help me. and then I decided to send for some of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I got six boxes
and before I used them all 1 was as
well sis I had ever been, with a gootl
hiealthy color, a-good appetite and an
entire :'rs ednm from the ailments that
hud mode nut so miserable. You may
be sure that I will always have a
warm regard for your invaluable
Do not experiment with other so-
called tonics—you ure apt to find it
a waste of money and your health
worse than before. You will not be
experimenting when you use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. They have proved
their value the world over, and you
can rely upon it that what they have
dons- for others they will do for yon.
If you cannot get the genuine pills
from your dealer send direct to the
Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brock-
vills'. Ont., and they will be mailed
post paid at 50 cents a box or six
boxes for s:".f)0.

Eastern mining and financial pampers, unite in the prediction that silver
has seen its lowest price, and that in
future its value will gradually

and has transferred its principal
market from London to New York.
Thus the producer will make the
price rather than the purchaser. If
this be so, many things can be for
given the trust.
Tuesday the provincial government announced their railway policy,
providing for the bonusing of certain
roads to the extent of $5,000,000. The
proposed railways are distributed on
Vancouver Island, coast to Midway,
Rock creek to Vernon, coast to Hazelton, Fort Steele to Golden, and a
bridge across the Fraser at New
Westminster. To earn the bonus,the
government insists on thc absolute
.control of all rates, will demand four
jwcentof the gross earnings, and
work must be commenced on all lines
by July 1, 1902. The conditions attached are such as to give a moderate
degree of public ownership to the
province and corresponding advantages. The government seeks by Its
policy to satisfy tha demand of several thousands of petitioners for all
.-railroads to be built and owned by
the people. A government caucus
was held on the proposed bill and it
waa given out that much opposition
has developed among the govei'iunen
followers to the measure.

: I Slow City Miners' Dun,
For some time past there has been
a feeling growing among business
and mining meu in favor ol securing
a telephone system for tl.e town, and
..•connection with the outside world.
There is a system connecting Silvs-i'-
,ton, New Denver, Alamo, Three
Forks, and Sandon, and it Is desired
to have the system made complete by
extending it down the lake and
through Slocan to Nelson. It would
mean the construction of a little orer
,-60 miles of line, but it is urged that
it could be mado a profitable investment. A priyate wire is in operation
between sSlocan and tlio Arlington
and Speculator, and in the summer
it Is to be extended over the summit.
,to the Enterprise. Were a main
trunk line built, other properties
would be connected, anil business
with town and country greatly facil
itated. Representations have been
made to members of the Nelson board
of trade on the subject and they have
promised to advocate the scheme, as
..being most beneficial to the business
interests of tho country. It will be
,ono ofthe lirst matters to be brought I
before tlie new civic government I
