Kditoii Drill:
Sir,--A preliminary meeting, with
the object of forming a British Columbia Association for the prevention aad
cure of tuberculosis, hns lieen held. A
constitution and bylaws arc drawn up
aad will bo submitted to a fceueral
uaoetiug to be held in Victoria on Jan.
20th. Th- public generally are invited to stt-nil this meeting, but I am
in.-atrueli'd to make a particular appcil
to your section to send a delegate; and
fur'.her, ta) ask you to take meai s to
a.te that ".our local member lc ;s .ed
to attend as a delegate from your district.
I need hattllj point out how urgent
this great question is, and when 1 remind you tint Canada loses 8000, the
United States 100,000, and the whole
world 2,000,0(K) humau lives every
yeir from tuberculosis, I think you
will admit it is time something should
be done, especially in view of the now
established fact that consumption is
preventiblo and curable.
As you no doubt know, there is ab
solutoly nothing being done in British
Columbia to either prevent the spread
of this disease or a-i-ist those already
afflicted with it. Not only is it a fact
that tliere is no .special institution for
those who could be assist<*d, but the
ordinary hospitals close their doors to
these unfortunates and leave them in
despair to die unaided, with the result
that they pass on their troubles not
only to the members ol their own ami
their neighbors' families, but the danger to the general public i.s correspondingly increased.
To attempt to right thu state of affairs Is-the reason for calling this
meeting.   Faithfully yours,
Provincial Board of Health^ ictoria,

The C.P.R. has announced a  new

Having disposed of tho lead question, by securing from the Ottawa
government a liberal bounty per ton,
the Slocan mineowners are up against
another momentous proposition, i.e.,
what to do with their ziuc. Takon together the mines possess far more ziuc
.nan lead, and the silver values com-
lined are so high that it is a pressing
necessity that ores shall be realized
ipon. The zinc question hus become
ill important during tho past year
md a satisfactory solution is aiixious-
■» awiited. Many of the mineowners
have beeh experimenting with treating
.ne ore on tue gri)Uin.l,pai'ticuliU.y the
Payne, and all aro ready to put in the
necessary plant when a satisfactory
process is demonstrated. .Shipping
the ore to Kansas did not result as
successfully as anticipated, and the
mineowners are looking for other relief.
Last week the mineowners met at
Sandon to discuss the zinc question,
having with ihem W. A. Galliher, M.
P. The object of tho meeting was to
determine some definite methodical
t3JSatmen*t of the case as it at present
exists in Kootenay. The general feeling was that thc Dominion government should lie nsked to step iu and
employ an eminent expert to inquire
into and report upon fully the production and treatment of zinc ores ai-
:•.,idy known to exist In the province,
especially in the Slocan.
After a thorough discussion, thc
nieeting decided to memorialize the
government, asking for the appointment a world known expert to examine the zinc resources of the country
and to make a report on them, and of
t he best method to tie adopted in order that zinc may be produced on a
-<nund commercial basis. The report
should, the association thinkF,embraco
'the whole zinc question, aud go thor-
.fiughly and exhaustively into ell matters appertaining to the matter of zinc
mining and treatment. Mr. Galliher
hcMaiily e.idorsed the idea advanced
and promised to use his influence
with the government to have the expert appointed.

Public Moating.
A public meeting w«v- held in the
Music Hall on Wednesday night, for
the purpose of discussing municipal
matters. Nearly every man in town
attended, besides a number of ladies
and boys. Acting Mayor Smith presided and made n short speech, followed, among others, by T. McNeish, D.
Arnot, A. ES. Teeter, and W. E. Worden. As the aldermen had all been
elected by acclamation, the chief Interest centred in the remarks of the.
rival candidates for tho mayoralty,
Messrs. McNeish and Arnot. The
main issue was the waterworks question, the former deprecating any effort
of the town putting in a plant, and
advocating company installation; Mr.
Arnot held forth for civic installation
and control. The proceedings were
not quite as breezy as anticipated.and
the fuu ended at 10 o'clock. Not a
vote was changed by the exhibition.

Dick walked down the avenue slowly, ao deeply absorbed that he looked
straight at Mrs. De Peyster Jones and
eut ber, to that young woman's surprise.
"Why, what can the matter be with
Dickie?" she said to herself, with an
utmost irresistible impulse to turn
uround and look after the melancholy
liguro auuiiterliiK down the street.
MUdred Jones bnd been a friend of
Dlek Eton's ever since they bad
played in the park aud gone to dancing school together. Two yenrs before she had married De .Peyster Jonea,
aud now one of her greatest pleasurea
was chaperoning Dlek and his various
"I believe Dick's ln love again," she
exclaimed, half aloud, "or perhaps thla
Is the real thing at lust. I wish it were
und Dickie would settle dowu."     -
At thc en mo moment Dick was passing n florist's. A happy thought struck
'•I'll settle lt tonight," be said to
himself. "I'll mnke Doris say whether
she cures for me or not. If sbe won't
havo me I'll, I'll"- His eyes wandered up und down the crowded avenue, brilliant in the spring sunshine.
I'll do something desperate," he threatened.
He went Into the shop, heavy with
the fragrance of roses and vloleta, and
tiled to decide what be would send
her. He wns going to take her to a
muslcale at Mrs. Schuyler's that evening, and us he had forgotten to ask
her tho color of bei- gown he chose
white roses. Going to tbe desk, be
took out a visiting card and stood heal-
tatlng, pen in hand. Should he leave
It to the flowers or ask ber tonight at
the muslcale? He remembered a particularly cozy and retired corner behind the pnlms In Mrs. Schuyler's conservatory.
"No, I cannot wait until then," he
thought    "I'll let the flowers apeak."
Hastily he wrote on the card, "If you
cure for me a little bit, Doris, carry
lliis tonight."
Then he sealed lt up and gave lt to
the man. "Scud the flowers nt once
to 37 West —th street," be said us be
paid for them. "On no account let
there be niiy delay."
"Arrah, thin, 1 want some flowers,
a rule llllgiint design, for me cousin,
Mrs. OT-'liiunnguii, who's dade," exclaimed a voice. A large, showily
ilreRsed, red faced Irish woman poshed
past hlm to the counter.
Dick went out of tbe shop filled with
mingled feelings of doubt, uncertaluf
und a great love for Doris. As he
•strolled over to the club be marveled
ut his own presumption ln asking such
n peerless creature to come down to
earth for his snko.
Thnt evening while he was waiting
for Doris he roamed restlessly about
lhe great drawing room. When a little
rustle of silken draperies announced
ber cotninlng he stood like a soldier nt
attention, nwaitlug bis sentence. The
portieres were pushed nslde, and Doris,
in a trailing white gown, stood outlined against the heavy curtulu—Doris
wilh her blue eyes flashing ominously—
nntl wilh empty hands.
Everything seemed to spin around.
"So yon couldn't carry them, Doris!"
lie cried hoarsely, while bis band
clasped tlio buck of the ebalr.
"I don't see how you could have asked such a thing," she snld Icily, ahe
was still fltnnding nnd did not make
any movement to come nearer hlm.
"I know It wns presumptuous," he
admitted mournfully.
Sbe Innghed mirthlessly. "I thought
ut first lhat you meant it as u Joki*-,''
sho snld. Sho walked over to the fireplace, her long, fluffy skirt trailing be
hind her on the polished floor. Tht
firelight plnyed on her hair, on hn
«lilte, sculptured shoulders and hei
exquisite nrms. Dick thought that slit
liiil never looked so beautiful, and hli
I nods tightened on the carved oak
chair back.
"1 knew you were always playing
lokei on people," she weut on, "but I
never supposed you eon Id Joke about
sueh a thing na this."
She looked up nt hlm as he towered
above her. He was a very gootl look
Ing man, she admitted, with his splendid athletic build and hla well bred,
clear cut features. Then she dropped
her eyes to the Are again.
"So you really had the impudenct
to send It?" she said cruelly.
Dick became a little angry. "1 may
be presumptuous," he cried, "but 1 fall
to seo wby you should look on lt at
impudent. Because a man sends a girl
flowers and shows her that he caret
for ber wltb all the depths of his be-
Ing you think he is Impudent"
"Well, I don't en re for your taste,"
she exclaimed. "1 consider the wbole
thing nn Insult, Mr. Eaton, and 1 do
not care to bo one of tbe girls on whom
you play such Jokes. I hnve a head*
ache and am not going to Mrs. Schuyler's tonight.   Shall I ring?"
Dick gathered himself together.
"Good night," be aaid coldly and met
the footman at tbe door.
After lunoheon tbe next day he found
himself In Mildred Jones' cosy little
drawing room pouring out tbe whole
story Into ber sympathetic ears.
"And you seut ber white roses?" she
Inquired wben he had finished tbe tale.
"Yes. Doris was here at luncheon, nnd
•he told me all about lt. I think, my
dear boy, that there has been some
great mistake. Itut don't be discouraged. I will try to manage some way
to help you out. Doris wus very angry,
bnt I am sure ahe will forgive you."
Tbere was an amused twinkle In her
eyes that Dick could not understand,
but he felt ber sympathy and went
back to tbe clnb with a lighter heart.
Perhaps an hour later be was called
to tbe telephone and at onee recognized Doris' voice.
"Hello! Ia that you, Dick?" abe said,
and there was a joyous ring nbout lt
that set Dick's heart to beating. "Did
you send me white rosea yesterany?"
"Yea," he cried exultantly, "white
roses and maidenhair."
Doris laughed. "Well. Dick, enn-
you—come up this evening?" She hesitated. "If you will come 1 will—er—
carry your flowers." She shut off the
telephone Instantly, and Dick was left
with the receiver at his ear and a
beatific expression on his face.
It was with different feelings from
those of the nlgbt before that be stood
by the Are ln Doris' drawing room
that evening listening for her footstep.
But so quietly she came tbat she stood
between the portieres before he knew
lt. Doris, beautiful aa ever, lu softest
rose color and holding ln her hands-
Dick, who had started forward with
a gtud cry, stopped, and bis bands
dropped to his side.
"flood heavens. Doris! Where did
you get that awful thing?" be exclaimed.
Doris, with a merry laugh, held up a
hideous form of red and white immortelles with stiff, red roses wired .on
toothpicks, spelling out the word
"Hope." "Your flowers." she explained.
"Oood Lord!" be gasped. "Doris, you
didn't tblnk I sent you that monstrosity, did you? Wbere are my rosea?"
Tben his face cleared. "It was that
miserable Irish woman!" he cried.
"She came In as I went out to order
some flowers for a funeral, and that
stupid florist got tbe cards and addresses mixed."
"Never mind, Dick," abe said, looking
at blm coquettisbly. "You don't seem
to realize tbat I am carrying your
flowers." But tbe last word was almost
lost hs Dick crushed ber In his arms,
the "llltgant design" and all.

(Very unhappy I bs;
I sing fnr charity.)
A hurst of laughter followed these
words, for the singer, n boy about 8 years
old, wns a grotesque specimen of humanity. His narrow blnck eyes, which were
almost closed while he was singing, wero
rather wide apart, bis month wns expanded into a smile, which revealed his
large teeth, he wore a hat which cniite
down nver his ears and a large pair of

Tbe scene occurred in tbe old Moorish
town of Bonds, In southern Spain. Tbe
party of three— Mr. Livingstone, his
daughter nnd Lawrence Morton—arrived
that afternoon. Their landlord luul but
recently come into possession of Ibe hotel,
and tbelr dinner had been the supreme effort of his life. Hi. bad discarded the oil
used by bis countrymen in their cooking
tnd had used mutton tallow in its place.
Every course was steeped In this odorous
grease, and Evelyn remarked thnt "Let
us return to our mutton" would have
been at that meal a most appropriate
Mr. Livingstone, wbo, like ninny other
tourists, liked to eat his cake and linve
it, to travel abroad and bave all the comforts of his home, arose from the mhle
with a frown on his brow, which was
chased away hy the autics of the rjTtalnt
little "mendigo." who stretched Iiis mouth
wider tban ever when he received the silver piece, muttering "Mochas gradas,
senor," in a voice of smothered ecstasy.
"He looks just like a brown Ul" cried
Evelyn, kneeling down beside him.
"What is your name, child?" she asked
In his owu tongue, taking his little brown
band in her white one.
"Benito Pardo, senorlta."
"Are your parents living?"
"No, senorlta."
"nave yon brothers and sisters?"
"No, senorlta; there is no one, just old
"Ia she kind to yt*u?"
"She beats me when I bring her no
money, but sbe will not do so for a week
now. She will be ovej#>yed with tbe
grent amount tbe worshipful caballero
has just given me."
"Would you mind if you went away
from her?"
He grinned. "Tbere would be no oa*
to bring her pennies tben."
"Oh, papa," cried the impulsive younj
womnn after sbe bad translated the foregoing dialogue, "bow delightful it would
be to take this boy home with us! May
1 not take bim?"
"May yon take him? Of course not.
You nre out of your mind to think of
such a tblng."
"But you promised me before we left
home that If I would do everything the
doctor ordered you would get na- anything 1 wanted. I did follow out his directions to the letter. I am perfectly
well now and will bold you to yoar word."
"Listen to Ihnt, wil] you. Moiton?
When 1 mnde that promise, I meant anything In the woy of finery, pictures or
statuary. I didn't suppose she would

"Think what n nuisance he will be on

"Not nt all," she responded serenely.
"At the hotels we can ulways pny a servant to look after him, nnd on shipboard
we can put him in charge of the steward."
The result of this conversation was n
visit to old Catnlinn, who readily agreed
to part with tbe boy for three goldplecea
with the little king's bead on ihem. She
diil not kiss Benito, but she did kiss the -
goldpieces with tears in her eyes, for she
never had seen so much wealth in one
heap. Lawrence Morton had requested
the honor of buying for Benito his Hist
suit of new clothes nnd disappeared with
tne youngster, bringing blm back clean
anil well dressed, He had also bought
him some sweets, n delicacy hitherto only
to be ga-sed at and longed for. l-'rom that
moment Benito was ready to die for bis
new friend.
The senorlta was in the parlor alone
when they returned to the hotel. When
she saw Benito's changed appearance,
•jalie was so plenaed she held up bor face
and allowed Mr. Morton to kiss her on
the lips, afler which she blushed and
glanced apprehensively at Benito, who
wus glad to have beeu the means of procuring for bis friend a reward so sweet.
The boy soon learned to innUe himself
useful. He could carry packages and
run errands and cotiM be trusted to
mnke small purchases. I'or Mr. Livingstone be entertained a reverence mixed
with awe, but Evelyn anil Lawrence he
worshiped, following them about liko a
faithful dog, delighted if they nskcil him
to do them n favor.
One afternoon at Gibraltar the young
couple went up tbe winding road for a
w.ilk, taking the boy with them. He soon
noticed that something was wrong. They
dial not smile ami lavak Into each other's
eyes as (hey were wont to do, they spoke
little, aud their voices wero cold. Near
the lop of tbe rock tbey stopped, and the
senorlta slipped a beautiful sparkling ring
from her finger nnd laid it in the baud of
Mr, Morton. Benito wondered why .-he
sliaaitlii give him a present tvheh she seem-
cil angry witb him, Mr. Morton liebl the
jewel iu his hand for n moment ami then
sent it spinning, a Hash of lighl ihrough

young man walked nway without a word,

Evelyn found bim crying and cried with
"Vou lijve him, ta»o, do ya.u uut, leno*
rila?" asked the boy.
"Yes." Then she gave two little dubs
at her eyes with her handkerchief and
saiil he must not speak of Mr. Morton to
her again.
Ills life in his new home in Chicago
was a drenm of delight to tbe little
Spaniard, but he lived with one object
in view, and that was to be able some
time to write n letter to Lawrence Morton. In the course of time he learned to
read and speak English after a fashion,
but his fingers were clumsy when he tricil
lo write. Being sent to tbe office one
day. be observed n typewriting machine,.
which was nn object of wonder ami a.l-
miration to him. Hi-re was something
which would write for you and which
you could use without being puxzlrd
about thp tails of those vexation! 'i's and
g's. He would make it write to Mr. Morton. Tlie stenographer good naturedly
explained lis mysteries, and after many
trials Benito succeeded In writing Iho
following letter:

He took the letter to Mr. Livingstone,
who, without any idea of its contents.
addressed and stamped il for bim. Then
Benito, with the pride of one who has ne-
complished a great feat, dropped It down
the shoot.
A few nights after this he was Fcnt for
to come to the parlor to see Mr. Morton.
Benito beamed with delight nt tlie sight
Of bis friend, who tolil him bis letter wns
oue of Ihe most delightful be* had ever

suid: "Benito, we are cadi of ns going

1    Tulnonary tuberculosis Is not A con-
taglous, but ouly a communicable disease.   The contact per se of the coo-
'Eiimptlve Individual does not convey
I the disease. It Is now well known that
j lt Is mainly the tuberculosis expectora-
: tion. which, when dried and pulverised
to dust, constitutes the main danger of
I Infection. The means to prevent Infec-
, tion from tuberculosis cxpectorntlon or
; saliva—expectorating  only   In   proper
I vessels,  spittoons  nnd  pocket   flasks,
' proper  nse  of  handkerchiefs  during

care of bis expectoration, does not constitute any danger to his fellow men.

pheuiy to those old habitues of the In
Btllution to whom Ite utsmosplieie ls almost the breath of tbelr life nnd to
whom its treasures of antiquity nnd

Koine nnd thronged only by (hose wonderful works of sculpture wrought by
cunning hands long crumbled Into lhe
dust of past ages, hut whose spirit of
beauty nmi reverence still lingers ln
these heroes and heroines of old renown.
Id some of the rooms one may see n
few nursemaids relieving the tedium of
their dally walk through Bloomsbiiry
by bringing llieir little charges to the
museum, where they may amuse themselves nnd get muterlHl for bad dreams
while the nurses themselves have a
quiet gossip.
In the holiday season also one may
see troops of Americans passing swiftly
through the galleries, "doing" the mu
setiKi with wonderful dispatch nnd
commenting with western levity upon
the relics of ninieiif civilization und
the hones of prehistoric men.
But the Londoner does not come. The
time that he can spare from lunch hour

Steady  Job*  Area Feeding: the  Stoek
and  Keeping Warm.
The great steady winter Jobs on an
American farm in the north nowadays
are feeding tho stock and keeping
warm. And keeping warm nowadays
means hauling coal. When I lived in
the Country, it mennt cutting wood. It
meant for our large family constant
learning day ufttr duy from the woods
to the wood yard nnd a wood pile that
must have covered a quarter of an
acre. It meant toward spring tho coming of men wltb a horse power oud
buzz saw to cut firewood, and that was
almo-st ns interesting on operntlon as
There were other stirring days when
the lake bad frozen bard and the icehouse was filled. Involving Ire cutting
and more teaming and more precarious
bltchlug on behind loads and going
back ln empties. And early lu tbe winter there was the momentous nnd gory
killing of pigs. Oh. that was indeed a
stirring time! They kill n pig every
sccoud, no doubt. In Chicago nowadays, but that Is mere mechanical
routine, witb do quality of sport ln lt.
There was uotblng so very slow
about the country winter in days as
late as the civil war. I suppose soap-
uniking ns a domestic Industry Is .is
dead as household spinning. In those
times of wood flies and wood ashes nil
self respecting families made soap.
Our family had nn outstanding kitchen expressly for that use, with a big
cistern-like hogshead behind It ln which
ashes were leached nnd convouient
.*ubs for holding the soft soap. A very
handsome substance is soft soap of the
proper consistency and complexion, and
n pleasing exercise It used to be for
tbe young to stir It wltb n stick nnd
watch Its undulations. All tbe superfluous fat of meat from our kitchen
was turned Into soft soap in those nearby old times.
The Iladscr's Digging Ability.
The sportsman naturalist, SH. Jolin,
one day found a badger in a trap not
much Injured. Tying a rope to Its hind
log, he drove tbe animal home—stranue
to say, tbe captive beast jogging steadily along In front of him and giving
little more trouble than a pig going to
market. On reaching houie thc nuima)
was put for the night Into a paved
court, where It seemed perfectly secure.
".Next momlng," said St. John, "he wns
gone, having displaced a stoue that I
thought him quite Incapable of moving,
nnd then, digging uuder thc wall, he
got uway."

Liberal Delegate Roy, from TCoss-

ou tho lead question embarrassed the
Laurier government, and that he did
not support the Liberal cause and
party.   What, mutiny already!
.*(*»,was expected W. A. Galliher has
again been nominated by the Lilierals
to contest Kootenay for the Dominion
house. His opponent on the Conservative ticket-is Hon. Charles Mackintosh, aud the fight between the two
'will be a dandy, but the Tory champion will surely win. Bill is already
appealing to Chris Foley's followers
for help.   ___________
Bennett, flrtjo mado the run on the
Socialist ticket in the Revelstoko riding in the provincial contest,is spoken
of as that party's nominee to contest
Kootenay for the Dominion house.
The Socialists will show strength in
Revelstoke, Ferguson, the Slocaa,Nel-
son, Rossland, Moyie, Cranbrook and
Fernie. If their nominee is endorsed
by the Labor unions, then the old
parties had better prepare for trouble,
especially the Liberals.

seaworthy vessels. Saturday's disaster, when the steamer Clallam, plying
betweeu Seattle and Victoria, foundered in a fierce gale amil drowned upwards of fifty persons, proved a most
crushing blow, because of the loss of
so many notables. It was at first
thought that Hon. R. F. Green, of
Kaslo, and other members of the legislature, were among those who perished, but, thankful to say, the report
proved untrue. British Columbia sympathizes with the stricken families.
"The best laid plans of meu and
mice aft gang aglee" is au axiom peculiarly befitting the situation in
which the Liberal leaders find themselves. Had the much-boomed Grand
.Tnink Pacific road beeu able to de-
>posit their$5,000,000guarantee within
the specified time, there ia no doubt
the Dominion elections would now be
on. But tho funds have not been
forthcoming and every day's delay is
lessening the Grit chances of success,
as popular enthusiasm is fast cooling.
Mackenzie & Mann's statement also,
that they .purpose Constructing the
Canadian Northern through to the
Pacific, aud so give a third tnmscon-
tineutal line to the Dominion, has
proven a serious setback to the government's pet scheme. The Canadian
Northern will not only be in running
shape long before the Grand Trunk
Pacific, but the owners thereof are
seeking no guarantee of bonds from
the government, nor do they want tlio
government to build any portion of
their line. Those facts are playing
havoc with Grit contentions anent the
G.T.P. and the loaders are lyeing hard
pressed for campaign ammunition,
and until sucli can lie manufactured
the date of the election will hardly be
set. Another potent elemeut of disturbance to the Grits is the tarilT,upon
which their policy has been anything
but consistent. Elected us free traders, they have, to keep in with public opinion, continued along the lines
of pronounced protection, and thoy
dare not recede from that position.
The manufacturing interests of Canada are unanimous fora larger measure
of protection, nnd to gain tho support
of that class the Grits must meet their
desires. They cannot do this without
fomenting much trouble in their own
ranks. On the other hand, the Con
servatives stand with undivided ranks
upon a clean-cut policy of protection,
with no fringes. Their motto is, Canada for the Canadians, and their aim
is to see stamped ou ali arlicles used
jn tho country, "Made in Canada."
