LAND HOLDS CLEAR TITLE
TO BIG   PRODUCER,
They are sacking; ore at the Colonial
���wliii-li will return values of 175 ounces
silver. Here is a property with 200
tons of rich ore in sight which A.
Copeland is operating practically single
handed, The Colonial group, like many
another grass-root shipper, has been
tied ui) and scorched with litigation,
but the owner has survived the ordeal
and now hold.-, a clear title to what
musl raid; as a prospect bearing the
ear-marks of a big mine. The Colonial
is favored with position, for it is situated baraly two miles from the EC.&S,
railway at Cody: the owner, therefore,
will not have to face heavy transportation dues, neither is he butting up
against the water or limber problems,
for there is an abundance of both.
Mr. ,!. McKaskill, one of the oldest
and' must,'conservative miners in the
Slocan, was down from Cody on Monday. Questioned as to the properties
being worked in lis district, to the
" Review " he told the following;
" There is a property now being
worked at Cody by A. Copeland which,
if capitalists w ire aware of, would be
attracting considerable attention. That
property is tho Colonial, which, after
being in litigation for a number of
years, is now yielding ore to the sole
owner which carries values of 175 ozs.
of silver to the ton. There is 200 tons
of this ore right in sight, and the
ownef expects to extract and ship 500
tons this winter. You may take my
word for it th it it is one of the best
things in the Slocan, There are several good leads with this ore running
through. The Colonial adjoins the
Freddie Lee an I Chicago, and is one of
the oldest locations in the Slocan, being
staked in the very early days by Copeland ami Fry. It has without doubt a
fine showing of ore, and 1 want you to
feel confidence in publishing what 1
say. There is a good trail right to the
properly, all kinds of water.nnd plenty
of good mining limber."
Notice is hereby given that 80 days
after date I i itend to apply to the
Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works for a sp. eial license to cut anil
carry away timber from the following
described lands : Commencing at a post

Nearly twice as much money will be
expended by the Spokane Interstate
Fair management this year as last.
Seven thousand dollars is the cost of
an addition to the grand stand, which
will nearly double its capacity. A
home industry exposition will also be
held in connection with the Fair, by
the 15,000 Club of Spokane, and for
this purpose the Fair management
is erecting a new exposition building
'a cost $4,000. This club will have en-
ire charge of the night show, and the
price of admission will be reduced to
10 cents for the evening entertainment.
All manufactured goods of Spokane
concerns will be exhibited in this
building, and machinery in motion will
be one of the chief attractions. There
will be music and vaudeville entertainment of the highest class. It is proposed to make this feature of the Fair
as popular as were the old night shows
held in tne big tents by the fruit fairs
years ago.
If you think the Review is filling the
bill it is up to you lo help out. Send
along your sub. and watch us dodge the
sheriff.

GOOD  QUALITY.
The local syndicate which bonded the
Young Hear group near Springer and
10-Mile creeks some three weeks ago
have soon struck a paystreak. The
ore, which is of dry quality and fairly
good shipping grade, was encountered
in the drift a week ago and is now
coming in stronger. It is on record
here that well-known experts have
asserted that this property will one
day rival the famous Ottawa.
The owners of the property are A

The Trail lead plant is undergoing
alterations and repairs these days.
Most of the lead ore has been switched
over to the Hall plant at Nelson, which
was hardly in condition to handle the
load owing to minor delays through the
breakage of a furnace crucible. Customers had to be refused until the
accumulation was worked off, but it is
expected that both plants will be in
working order very soon. With the
zinc plant at Frank it is different. The

The two Nelson dailies are just now
serving up editorial sermons day by
day. An editor can preach the finest
sermon going with the stub Olid of a
pipe in bis mouth and possibly a jolt of
inspiration tonic on the desk at his
elbow ; while to do that in church would
create a panic among the congregation.
Similarly a man can read the sermon
with his overalls on and minus a collar.

Her Sister's
Betrothed

(Continued.)
CHAPTER II.
The train from Paris dashed Into
the station at Houfleur and two young
men jumped lightly to the platform;
but, as If by common accord, stood
near the door of the compartment they
had just left, A young girl, so bewitch-
ingly pretty that the hurrying passengers turned to look at her, was preparing to alight In her turn, when her
skirts caught in the door, and she
would have fallen had not the two
young men rushed to her assistance.
"Thank you, gentlemen!" she murmured, sweetly, bestowing a grateful
glance at both with touching impartiality.
"What. Is It, Edmee?" asked a dignified matron who accompanied the girl.
"I stumbled, Madame, and "
She did not finish the explanation,
but hurried away Impatiently toward
the gate.
"Who Is she? Where Is she going? I
know everybody in Houfleur and its
vicinity, but I'm sure I never saw this
little wonder," said one of the young
men, as he stood looking after her.
"Let us follow her," said his companion; "we shall find out something
about her. She is evidently an aristocrat, and yet���there Is something
about her different from our sisters."
The speaker was a handsome young
man, who, in spite of his civilian
clothes, betrayed the soldier. His cold
gray eyes, his pointed mustache and
abrupt manners seemed to Indicate
that this young officer was anything
but a kind superior. His companion
was a plainer man, with the dreamy
blue eyes of a student.
Edmee hastened on; her eyes strained, searching for some one among the
many persons that awaited the travelers; she knew that a great deal depended on the first meeting; and in
her anxiety she completely forgot the
two young men, whose evident admiration had amused her during the journey. And yet, admiration was as
necessary to her as the air she breathed.
The moment Marthe Levasseur,
caught a glimpse of this fresh young
face, expressive of so much emotion,
-she did not hesitate an Instant. She
turned slightly pale, but advanced
resolutely, and said:
"Your name is Edmee Levasseur, Is
It not?"
Edmee, much agitated and ready to
burst into tears, threw herself Into
her elder sister's arms impulsively.
"My sister," she murmured, softly.
Marthe kissed the young girl cordially, and this kiss sealed a resolution
to which she had come only after
many struggles with herself.
"Why, what a bewltchlngly pretty
sister I have found," she said, kindly,
"you are simply exquisite!"
"I am so glad to please you," replied Edmee, with an Imploring glance.
As 'Marthe looked up she saw the
two young men who had witnessed the
meeting, and her pale face flushed
suddenly.
"Robert!" she exclaimed, "your
mother did not expect you until next
week."
"I wanted to give her a pleasant surprise," replied the young man, still
looking admiringly at the younger sister.
"Well, come with us, we shall leave
you at your door;" then, turning to
Edmee, she added, not without an
effort: "Mv stater. Mile. Edrnes Levasseur, AT. le Baron d'Ancel."   "
The young man bowed low.
A little confusion followed. The
teacher who had accompanied Edmee
wished to return to Paris by the first
train, anil Robert displayed much zeal
in making all necessary arrangements.
At last, he took his seat In the landau,
opposite the two young girls, and, for
the first time since his Introduction to
the radiant beauty, he remembered
his friend who was glaring at him enviously. As he was passing near the
carriage, Robert beckoned to him.
"Marthe," he said, "will you allow
me to present an old college friend,
who comes to ^pend his days of convalescence at Trouville? Captain Bert-
rand will be a precious addition to the
parties, which my mother informs me
you are preparing. Bertrand, M'lle Levasseur."
Then the landau moved away. The
Captain stood motionless for an instant, looking after the three young
people whose merry laughter came to
him. He felt slighted without knowing
why���for, after all, Robert had introduced him. But Edmee, as she had returned his bow, had given him a long
glance. Again It seemed to him that
this glance was different from other
young girls, that It had nothing In
common with a convent education.
But, after all, she might not have been
brought up in the convent! One thing
was sure, she was certainly the prettiest he had ever seen; with her large
dark eyes���her sister's eyes���pink
cheeks and golden hair. What an enchanting and piquant contrast the sisters formed! Marthe, on the contrary,
was a decided brunette, with olive
complexion and glossy black hair. This
tall serious girl was rather handsome,
but who would care to give her a
second glance when this bewitching
little creature was at her side!
Robert was soon deposited at his
own gate, and the two sisters were
left alone In the carriage once more.
"I am so happy, so happy," murmured Edmee, softly, as she clasped her
sister's hand and looked Imploringly
into her eyes.
Marthe smiled kindly, won by the
caresses of this child who seemed to
beg for affection; claiming protection
with a naivete that would have melted
a heart less tender than hers. She
vaguely realized that this sweet and
charming way of asking aid and protection must be absolutely irresistible
with men. Edmee's mother had perhaps looked at her father as Edmee
was looking at her now. But this
thought merely flashed through her
mind, as a sharp pain vibrates a
wounded nerve. She abandoned herself
to the joy of having found a being
weaker than herself, whom she could
love and pet to her heart's content.
Once Marthe gave her heart, she never
took it back. Her first instinct had
been to repulse the stranger's child;
but she had welcomed her, and now
she had adopted her loyally, absolutely.
"My dear Edmee," she replied, "I
did n?t tell sou a'J in nnv.i-*Jter. Mv
mothers sister, Mme. fJespOrs wno
brought me up and whom I love dearly, is living with me. You must try
and win her affection, for���it is better
you should know It at once���she opposed your coming very strongly."
"It is only natural," observed Edmee, humbly. "She only sees my poor
mamma's daughter in me. I shall do
all in my power to make her think of
me only as your sister."
"How wise and full of common sense
you are!" cried Marthe, admiringly.
"That is only an elementary principle," said Edmee, with a pretty ripple of laughter; "if you only win a
person's love you can obtain anything
you want."
This profession of faith made the
elder sister's eyes open wide. But it
had berji said so simply, as If the declaration admitted of no discussion, and
was followed by such pretty babbling
on the beauties of the country, on the
joys she would find In her existence
in the midst of these beautiful surroundings, that Marthe soon forgot
the impression the remark had pro
duced on her.
When the carriage turned into the
beautiful avenue that led to the chateau, which was still Invisible, Edmee
became almost thoughtful.
"And all this is yours, all this Immense forest?" she asked.
"Yes," replied marthe, Bmillng. "We
may wander for hours over the
grounds without leaving the domain."
"Then you must be rich, very rich."
"Not extravagantly rich. Proportlei
like this one cost a great deal to kee)
up, although, us you see, I do noi
spend much In cultivating it, prefer
ring a forest to a park���and It givei
very meager returns. It is a wild lux
ury which salts me. The wealth of my
���of our father was divided in two
This property comes from my mother;
from what 1 have learned, you must
be richer than I."
"Possibly, f-'apa speculated with
mamma's money and increased it tenfold, so my guardian told me. At all
events, there is no danger of elthei
of us dying of starvation. It must be
terrible to be poor."
"Who knows? I would not be afraid
to earn my living, at least I hope not,"
Edmee gave a little shudder of horror, Earn a living, work, like those
unfortunate under-toaehors at the
school she had just left! This little
animal of luxury would have been
quite Incapable of it.
The carriage turned into a wider
avenue, shaded by tall beech trees.
Suddenly the gray mass of the lawn,
flower bods and ancient oaks, came into view.
"Why���It Is very Imposing." observed Edmee; "quite like a castle In romance. Are there any ghosts In it?"
Marthe reflected rather sadly that
the ghost who would haunt the chateau would be the past in the person of
Eihnee, the daughter of the woman
who had cost her mother so many
tears. Again she asked herself If her
dead mother did not reproach her this
welcome, this triumphant entry. Her
aunt's warning words rang in her ears:
"You shall see; misfortune will enter
this house with the actress' daughter?"
But Marthe resolutely drove away
these thoughts, and, bending over, she
kissed her newly-found sister once
more.
"No, my darling," she replied, "there
are no ghosts in my home. And if
there were, your gaiety would drive
them away. You are welcome. If I can
give you happiness, you shall be happy,
I promise It."
Much moved and a little frightened
by her big sister's serious words, Edmee looked at her with her childish
eyes full of tears; then, in an outburst
of sincere gratitude, she said:
"I judged you rightly, Alarthe, or I
uever would have dared write to you.
Papa often said to me: 'If ever you
are in need of aid or protection, my
little Edmee, call on your sister, it will
not be In vain, I assure you.' And how
many times I have thought of his
words! Only���how can I explain myself?���do not expect too much from
me. I am not wicked, but I am afraid
I am not very good. Yet, it seems to
me that with you I may learn to be
better. You must holp me. Until now,
I have thought of nothing but amusing
myself to the best of. my Ability. That
is not quite your iaeai, is !"������
She made this confession in a half-
serious, hulf-bantering tone, hoping to
make a good impression on her sister.
The latter smiled kindly, saying: "I
love you as you are. Be always frank
and loyal, it Is all 1 ask."
The servants, curious to see the new
"young lady," had assembled on the
steps to welcome her. Edmeo responded to their bows with a gracious smile,
and was at once voted "charming, very
pretty and not proud."
Mme. Despols was not there, however. They found her in the boudoir,
half concealed behind an enormous
frame, on which she was embroidering.
"Aunt Relie, here is my sister Edmee."
Marthe said these words with a particular Intonation. She was very fond
of her aunt; but, after all, she alone
was mistress at the chateau, and when
necessary, she did not hesitate to assert herself.
The aunt's hands, however, suddenly
became so entangled in silks and wool
that she could only offer one finger to
the newcomer; then she again vanished behind the enormous frame, without deigning to notice the discomfiture
depicted on the jv-etty face.
"Good-day, Mademoiselle. I hope you
had a pleasant journey. Very dusty, la
It not? I detest traveling by rail," was
her cold greeting.
"Thank you, Madame, the journey
wag pleasant enough. But, I beg of you,
my name is Edmee, and Marthe calls
me that."
"Humph! Marthe may do as she
pleases. It was she Invited you; she
pretends you art her sister. That may
be all very true. But If I am her aunt,
I am not yours. Her mother was my
Bister, a sister I adored."
"I know it, Madame. You do not
wish my presence here. It is only
natural. But li you would only look at
me once, in the eyes���like that���you
would see that I am not wicked; that
I would be grieved to be the cause of
any trouble between you and my sister, and���and that I will do all In my
power that you may one day forgive
me���for being my mother's daughter."
Then, overcome by th* emotions she
had already undergone during the day,
and Jlils. first resistance, although ex
pected, Kdmee burst into tears, strobing violently like a child who wants
to be soothed and consoled.
Annoyed by this scene, Mme. Despols suddenly emerged from behind
her screen, saying, coldly:
"There, Mademoiselle, there���Edmee!"
"Forgive me, Madame," sobbed Edmee, nestling closer to her sister; "I
am not doing it on purpose; I could
not help it. It is all over now."
"Then I suppose I must kiss you to
seal the peace."
"Ah! If you would only not hate
me."
"But, It is not you, it is the paBt that
I hate. Come! we will say no more
about it. There, are you satisfied?"
And Aunt Relie imprinted a kiss on
the girl's forehead, unable to resist
Marthe's imploring glance.
The storm passed as quickly as It
had come. Edmee laughed through her
tears and thanked Mme. Despots in
little phrases intermingled with stifled
sobs.
Marthe now hurried her off to her
room. As she looked after the two
girls, the elder one's arm clasped
around her sister's waist, Aunt Relie
muttered: "Well, if anybody had told
me that I would kiss her���but, with
those eyes, she can twist any one
around her finger. Marthe is fairly bewitched. Bah! we shall soon marry
her off and be left In peace. But there
Is no denying that she is exquisite���"
Marthe's apartments consisted of a
large room overlooking the garden,
and a boudoir in the large tower at the
right of the castle. This circular bou-
aolr was u delicious retreat. The wall
was so thick, that the sill of the narrow windows, which were provided
with cushions, made cozy seats from
which could be contemplated a beautiful view of the count! y. A narrow,
winding stairway, also cut into the
thick wall, led to the garden through
a small door which no one but Marthe
ever used. This same little stairway
also ascended to the floor above, but
the apartments there were seldom
used. Next to the bed-room, and opening into it, was another very large and
pleasant room.
"This will be your room, Edmee;
that is, if it pleases you," said Marthe,
as she opened the door. If you prefer
It, however, I shall have the apartments above mine prepared for you.
But I thought��� especially If you are
afraid of ghosts���that you would prefer to remain under my wing. You may
share my boudoir; as you see, there Is
a piano, books, a desk, and it Is quite
lange enough for both."
"I want to be near you, Marthe, always near you. I am so happy with
you. And what a pretty room you have
given me, what a delightful view! Ahl
how happy we shall be together!"
She flitted about, nervous and excited, anxious to visit the castle at
once, while the maid opened her
trunks and put the room in order.
The back of the chateau was very
Irregular, with its funnelKiaped turrets, oddly fashioned wings and a
number of small Interior court-yards,
paved with enormous stone flags; all
built at divers times, according to the
needs of the hour. It presented a vivid
contrast with the plain, almost severe,
facade. Further on, were the barns
and stables', then the kitchen garden
and the vast orchard, and beyond that,
the silent forest spreading on all sides.
Edmee was In ecstasy and clapped
her hands In delight at the thought of
llviii'; in the midst of these charming
surroundings. How she would amuse
herself In playing the farm maid. But
Ideas of country life were somewhat
confused In this giddy little brain.
"And you will give great fetes?" she
cried, delightedly, "and have lots of
vlsilorR. How delightful? That gentleman���what do yon call him?���said so.
So you have known him a long time,
eh? How queer he never thought of
marrying you, since you are neighbors.
The country makes one feel like marrying���"
"As you see, you are mistaken, since
I am still single."
"Your turn will come. That gentleman pleases me very much, although
he Is somewhat round-shouldered; he
must write a great deal. His friend,
the military man, is also charming. We
traveled in the same compartment all
the way. And what fun I had! They
both looked at me almost continually,
and I dropped my book and handkerchief several times, just to see them
scramble for it. Once they knocked
their heads together and I almost
laughed aloud. Then, as I was getting
off, I nearly fell, and both rushed to
my assistance. Each received one of
my best emiles In return, so that
neither is jealous of the other."
"1 hope you are not a coquette, my
dear Fitmee," said Marthe, gravely,
only half pleased by this childish prattle.
"I don't know, but I am afraid I
must be���but then I told you I was
not eonil "

HE DIDN'T BUY.
Experience of a Man In Search of a
Present For HI* Girl.
"A fellow never realizes what a woman's articles of wear cost until he is
engaged to be married," observed a
young business man. "This fact was
Impressed on me with particular emphasis. I happened to meet on lower
Broadway a college chum, now In business and in moderate circumstances,
who has just become engaged to a nice
girl, also without an independent fortune.
"'Come in here with me, Jack,' he
said, stopping in front of a well known
ehop. 'Tomorrow is Minnie's birthday,
and I want to get her a remembrance.'
" 'What Is It golug to be?" I asked as
we made our way In.
*' 'Well,' he replied, 'I've sent her so
much candy and flowers and stuff of
that sort that I think I'll vary It with
something useful this time. I've been
thinking of some nice handkerchiefs.'
"I agreed that handkerchiefs were
always a satisfactory possession, and
wo wended our way to the proper
counter.
" 'I want to look at women's handkerchiefs���something rather nice, suitable for a gift,' said Jim, my companion.
"The saleswoman produced a box of
filmy affairs about the size of the palm
of your hand, with a narrow border of
lace and some kind of fancy business
in each corner.
" 'Those are nent and simple looking,'
said Jim approvingly. 'How much are
they?'
"When the answer came, 'Twelve
dollars,' Jim thought, and so did I,
that the price named was for the entire
box.
" 'Very well, i'll take a dozen,' he
answered, with a care free tote which
made the saleswoman look at us a little curiously.
" 'Excuse me, but how many did you
say?' she asked.
" 'One dozen. There are a dozen in
the box, are there not?'
" 'Yes, sir,' returned the young woman, with an impressed air. 'One hundred aud forty-four dollars, please,' she
said, making out the slip.
"It was our turn to stare.
"'I���I don't understand you,* said
Jim, gasping. 'I thought you were
quoting the price by the dozen.'
" 'You'll hardly get linen and real
Valenciennes with those hand worked
corners for a dollar apiece,' sniffed the
saleswoman superciliously.
" 'I don't know hand work from fish
net myself,' retorted Jim crossly. 'But
I do know I'm not going to pay $12 for
a lot of rag three Inches square. Come
away, Jack; I'll get some kind of a
bangle at the jeweler's.'
"When we had escaped from the
withering glance of the damsel behind
the counter Jim mopped the perspiration from bis brow.
" 'And then they say modern young
men are too selfish to marry,' he
groaned."���New York Press.
How Emery Is Quarried.
Emery comes from the island of
Naxos, in the eastern Mediterranean,
whence it has beeu exported for the
last two centuries or more. The beds
are in the northeast of the island, the
deposit descending into some of the
neighboring ishtnds, the emery being
found in lenticular masses, resting on
layers of schist in limestone, almost
identical with Parian marble, the finest marble known, which comes from
the Island of Pares, close by. There
are about 300 men engaged in the
trade, all of whom have to be married
before they are admitted to the fraternity. The material is mucb too hard
to be dug out or even blasted. Great
fires are lighted round the blocks till
the natural cracks expand with the
heat, and levers are then Inserted to
pry them apart.
This system is continued until the
blocks are reduced lu size to masses of
a cubic foot or less, aud they are then
shipped as if they were coals. There
are said to be 20,000,000 tons yet available at Naxos. It Is one of the hardest substances yet known, coming next
to the diamond, nnd among Its crystalline forms known to the Jewelers are
the ruby and tho sapphire.

I,laii(li��K  a   Pipe.
A smoker who started to light his
pipe on tho street turned to his com-
panlou and said: "A man told me the
other day how to light nu ordinary
match In a high wind. Let me show
you."
There was a stiff breeze blowing.
Tho demonstrator took from his pocket
an envelope, struck a parlor match on
a rail and shielded It Inside of the envelope, facing the wind as he did so.
The match burned with hardly a flicker, and the man who held it puffed on
his pipe with great satisfaction.
"That's a trick worth knowing," he
remarked. "Here's another. Sometimes you get a spark on top of your
pipe which the most vigorous puffing
fails to spread over the surface of the
tobacco. In that case take a piece of
paper of almost any kind and bold It
down In the spark. This will spread
the fire and give you the sort of light
a pipe  smoker  wants."

Raking Graa* After Monlm.
Some persons advise raking after
each mowing. I do not, because the
clippings drop down into the grass and
form a mulch, which I consider of
great benefit. They also help to fertilize the soil. The lawn that Is not
mowed often enough will not look well
after you have beeu over it with the
mower, because there was growth
enough to partially bide the sward upon which it fulls. This will wither and
turn brown In a day or two and greatly detract from the beuuty of the lawn.
But if you keep your lawn well mowed
���and that means going over it at least
three times a week in ordinary seasons���the amount clipped off at each
mowing will be so slight that there
will not be enough of it to show. Let
the knife blades be Bet high enough to
leave at least two inches of the foliage.

One of the most interesting wild animals Is the prairie wolf, known in
Mexico as the coyote and lu the old
world as the jackal. It Is thirty-six to
forty Inches long, with a tail measuring sixteen to eighteen inches in length.
The color is usually a dull, yellowish
gray on the back and sides, with black
cloudings. The underpart and inside
of the limbs are of a dirty white tiut
The voice is a sort of snapping bark,
and for this reason the animal is
known as the "barking wolf." It is
found on the western pluins, extending from Mexico to latitude 55 degrees
north. It hunts In packs and Is very

Recent reports of the New York
Board of Health prove that mortality
from kidney disease is greatly on the
increase.
Blight's disease as well as the other
dreadfully painful forms of kidney
disease can usually be prevented and
cured by giving some attention to the
diet and to the activity of the liver
and kidneys.
Excesses in eating and the use of
alcoholic drinks must be avoided, and
the filtering; organs can best be kept
in good working order by the use of
Dr.   Chase's   Kidney-Liver   Pills.
The derangements which lead to
Blight's disease usually have their
beginning in a torpid liver and there
is suffering from headaches, biliousness and indigestion before the kidneys fail and such symptoms appear
as backache, scanty, highly colored
urine, painful, scalding urination, deposits in uline, etc.
Mr. James J. Jenson, Olds, Alta.,
writes:���"I have been troubled considerably     with    lame    back,   which  I
suppose came   from   derangements of
the  kidneys,   and  I  have   never  been
able to find a treatment that was so
prompt and effective in curing this
ailment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills. At two different times in my
life this preparation has entirely
cured mo of this trouble, and of late
years I have found it unnecessary to
use any medicine whatever. I
feel it my duty to add this statement
to the many others which I see in recommendation of this excellent medicine.'*
Mrs. J. ('. Johnston, Carman, Man.,
writes:���"1 have been a great Buffer-
er from kidney trouble ..nil have used
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills with
very marked benefit. 1 cannot say
too much for this medicine as it
seemed to be the only treatment that
suited my case."
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills succeed where ordinary kidney inediciius
fail, because of their direct and combined action on the liver and kidneys.
This has been proven in tliousaiuls of
cases of serious and complicated diseases of the kidneys. One pill a dose,

Girl Courts Funeral Pyra.
An extraordinary story of suicide by
fire comes from Codsall, a pretty rural
village near Wolverhampton.
Mr. and Mrs. Archibald Walker, of
Woodfleld Oaken, in Codsall, were
awakened at an early hour one morn
ing recently by a smell of smoke. They
saw fierce flames In the yard, which
Mr. Walker extinguished with a garden hose. The fire appeared to be In a
heap of wood and shavings that had
been saturated with paraffin.
The village policeman was called, and
Mr. Walker's household mustered, when
It was discovered that the cook, Eliza
Davles, was missing. An examination
of the remnants of the Are disclosed
charred human remains, which were
identified as those of the missing cook.
It appeared that the young woman
found paraffin in the kitchen, and made
her exit by a window to the yard
where she built and ignited her funeral
pyre. The reason for her act Is a mys

and all annoying symptoms will
soon disappear. They settle the
stomach, regulate the liver and exercise the bowels. Their good effects are felt immediately.
Beecham's Pills mingle with the
contents of the stomach and make
easy work of digestion. The nourishing properties of the food are
then readily assimilated and the
residue carried off without irritating the intestines or clogging the
bowels.
Beecham's Pills should be taken
whenever there is sick headache,

Curious Patrons of Theatres In "Dear
Old   London."
The managers and box-office keepers of London theatres tell strange
stories of the eccentricities of their
patrons,
A certain gentleman, for Instance,
has never missed a single performance
at the Vaudeville theatre since the first
day of "The Belle of May fair." The
curious point about him is that he always takes two slabs, reserving one
of them for his hat ami coat. At Daly's
theatre there Is also a patron who for
many weeks has never missed a performance, and has Intimated that he
wants the seat���In the dress circle-
reserved until his leave of absence from
his regiment  In India expires.
At the Gaiety theatre there Is a pit
customer who, ever since the theatre
was built, occupies the same corner
each Friday night, and for some years
before did the same thing at the old
Gaiety. When the old Gaiety was In
existence a man used to sit in the gallery every night until a certain lady
In the company left to go on tour, when
he, too, left to follow her silently round
the country. Recently when she appeared at another London theatre for a
short engagement this distant and devoted admirer appeared in the gallery.
Another well-known patron of the
play-houses is a middle-aged man who
goes to every matinee of the newest
musical comedy. He arrives without
fall, and punctually at half-past four
leaves the theatre and drives away In
his carriage. This continues every week
until another musical piece is produced, when at once he transfers his custom.
Last year during the Covent Garden
opera season a colonial ex-Premier
arrived one evening, in ordinary
walking costume, and when he found
that evening dress was lndlspensible
he borrowed a white tie from the management, and keeping on his overcoat
took his seat. He went to the opera
many times afterwards, and always insisted on borrowing the white tie.
Mr. Lewis Waller at the Imperial
theatre had a misadventure that left
his theatre half empty one Saturday
night. Through carelessness the
"House Full" boards were not taken
away after the matinee, with the result that people arriving in the evening turned away and went elsewhere

Warspita   Boys,   In   Face   of   Danger,
Manifest Courage Like the Men
of the Birkenhead.
The stirring incidents which attended the loss of the Birkenhead many
years ago are recalled in a striking
manner by the splendid discipline
recently shown by a hundred Warspita
boys In the face of danger of the gravest character.
The training-ship lads were on the
four-masted vessel Port Jackson, anil
were being taken on a cruise to Australia, with a view to giving them a
practical training for the mercantile
marine. The Port Jackson had been
towed round from London to the Channel, and cast off the tug after passing
through the Straits of Dover. When
near Beachy Head, a sudden fog developed, and the sailing ship proceeded
with great caution down channel.
Presently a big steamer, which afterwards proved to be the Hamburg steamer Pyrgos, of the German Levant Line,
loomed up right in front of the Por'
Jackson. The fog had prevented the
steamer being seen until she was prac
tically in touch with the training slili
Every effort was made to avoid a collision, but the steamer crashed into tin
Port Jackson's starboard bow. The impact was terrific, shaking tho ship from
end to end, while the iron plates wen
ripped through as though they wen-
cardboard.
The captain, with great coolness, gave
orders for the Warspite boys to be mustered on deck in case of disaster, whlls!
the crew were told off to make arrange
ments for lowering the boats and getting out life-saving appliances, etc. Th
hundred young lads were very promptly mustered, and were formed up on tin
officers' instructions, and stood to attention awaiting the next orders of tin
captain. Happily, disaster was averted
and the sailing vessel was towed round
to Dover in safety.
The chaplain and doctor of the Port
Jackson said it was a wonderful sight
to see the lads coolly parading in tlu
face of possible disaster, as no one knew
until an examination had been made
what was the extent of the damagi
that had been sustained in the collision
Mr. West, of Our Navy, who was on
board, remarked that it vividly recalled
to his mind the famous story of the
sinking of the Birkenhead.
Folk Lone Told In Tableaux.
All the residents of the little vlllag*
of Brltlelgh, in Somerset, and hundred?
of visitors from Glastonbury and the
surrounding towns and villages trooped
into the grounds of Butlelgh Court, tin
home of Robert Henry Greville, recently to witness the first performance ol
the Folk play, "The Revel," In which
the romantic and fascinating history
of the "peaceful vale of Avalon" war-
Illustrated in a series of scenes and
tableaux.
First there was the prologue, spoken
by Avalon (Miss Somerville), who, like
the chorus in Shakespeare's "King
Henry V." introduced each scene in It**
order.
The first scene was a group of Phoenician traders, who, in very early days,
landed in the West with merchandise
This was followed by "The coming oi
St. Joseph of Arlmathea" and his
twelve brethren.
The other scenes Included the "Passing of Arthur' to his grave at Glaston;
"King Alfred in Hiding," "The Peace ol
Wedmore," "St. Dunstan and King Edmund Ironsides," 'The Tributes ol
Wolves to King Edgar" and "King
Henry I. Granting the Charter for Toi
Fair."
Next the episode of the dissolution of
Glastonbury Abbey was portrayed, followed t>y a scene from the short reign
of the so-called King Monmouth and
the "Change of Style," the whole concluding with a grand procession.
$50,000 For Pearl Necklace.
The exceptionally large sum of $50,000
was realized at Christie's (London) recently for one pearl necklace.
It is very rare indeed that so costly
a Jewel is put up at auction, and the
price paid then has been surpassed only
four or five times during the last ten
years.
Mme. Humbert's pearl necklace fetched JllO.OOO, the Dudley necklace brought
in a similar amount, and the Gordon-
Lennox was knocked down for $100,000.
The bidding was in the nature of a
Homeric contest. Pearls of great beauty, superb brilliants, sapphires, emeralds and other Jewels belonging to various ladles of title were offered for sale
and dazzled the eyes of beholders.
These, however, all paled before the
magnificent necklace, which was composed of five rows of 285 fine Orient
pearls, having a sapphire and brilliant
clasp.
The lowest ojter was $25,000, and
when the necklace was finally disposed
of to Mr. Huntley this enormous sum
had been doubled. The unsuccessful
bidder was Mr. Linderbaum, who stopped short at $49,500.
For a sapphire and brilliant necklace
set with ninety-five sapphires and with
brilliant festoon borders, $16,750 was
given, while a brilliant cluster necklace
realized $14,000.
Sea Serpent Seen.

was told to a crowded meeting of the

fish above the water. A large head and
about seven feet of a neck of the thickness of a man's then rose above the
surface. The head resembled that of a

Want to Tax Churches.
Exeter has more churches to the population than any place in England, and
is often called the "City of Churches."
The local authorities have been considering the desirability of assessing these
numerous buildings, and so adding enormously to the rateable value of the
city. They attempted to rate a church
used by the Spiritualists, but a protest
was lodged against it by the stewards,
who contend that if one sect is rated, all
must be rated, Including the cathedral.
The matter stands adjourned to ascertain the practice In other parts of Uie
country.
John Obeyed.
Mrs. F. was a very stern Woman,
who demanded Instant and unquestioning obedience from her children,
says Chums. One afteruoon as she
was working In her sewing room a
storm came up, aud sbe seat her son
John to close the trap leading to the
flat root of the bouse.
"But, mother"��� said John.
"John, I told you to shut the trap."
"Yes, but. mother"���
"John, shut that trap!"
"All right, mother, If you say so,
but"-
" John I"
John slowly climbed the stairs and
shut the trap. The afternoon went by,
and the storm howled and raged. Two
hours later the family gathered for
tea, and when the meal was half over
Aunt Mary, who was staying with
Mrs. p., had not appeared. Mrs. F.
started an Investigation. She did not
have to ask many questions. John answered the first one.
"Please, mother, she Is up on the

"Please send

The clerk, who bas had many years'
experience with these p��ople, said at
once, "Send him n bag of whole corn,
a bag of mixed feed and five pounds of
grass seed, or, as the French people put
it, 'hayseed.''"
And he was right.
At another time an order was received for a bag of "corn broke," and
at still another an order for a bag of
"corn not broke."

NOTED FORGER RELEASED.
Gives Advice to the Bank of England���
"Rainbow" Cheques.
In his home in a quiet North London
suburb a clean-shaven, resolute young
man, with a clear-cut business head
and a precise and careful manner, sat
and discussed with a Dally Ma.il representative the past���and the future.
It was William Bat-mash, the man
1 who was concerned in the most sensational forgery of Bank of England
notes of recent times. He has Just
been released, after having served only
a third of the sentence of ten years'
penal servitude passed upon him In
December, 1902. He was the youngest,
and certainly not the most blameworthy, of the forgers; and his liberty
has been given him, to use his own
words, "So that I may make a fresh
start in life, and devote my energies
to a more honest and less hazardous
calling.
Barmash was transferred from Park-
hurst to Pentonville prison after serving three years and three months, and
then released to rejoin his wtfe and
children. For "general good conduct
aKd services rendered" Barmash's original sentence of ten years was reduced
to five, with a further reduction oi
three months a year for excellent behavior.
To his credit It must be said, he has
done all In his power to make atonement, and his attempt to readjust the
balance of Justice, although It has not
altogether commended Itself to former
associates, lias won him the highest
opinions of the police and prison authorities. This he firmly Intends to follow up by severing all the old criminal
ties.
Under a new name Barmash baa
made a fresh start, and none of his
neighbors who see a well-groomed,
kindly-mannered man with his little
ones making much of him after hla
long absence connect him with the notorious bank forger.
It will be remembered that after the
trial his father, Solmon Barmash, paralyzed and a cripple, who had been
sentenced to fifteen years' lmprison-
men, shot himself in a jcell In Newgate. How he procured the revolver
after the careful search, and despite
the prison precautions, has remained
a mystery.
"In the library at Parkhurst prison,"
said the younger Barmash, "I have
read alt kinds of fanciful theories that
have from time to time appeared In
the newspapers as to how he secured
the means of death, but only two or
three living people know the real truth
at present.
"After the dreadful past," young
Barmash went on, "I Intend to commence a new life. I am eager for any
opportunity. In Parkhurst, where are
most of the prisoners who for fnelf
misdeeds are best known to the public,
my fellow-prisoners placed me in the
front ranks of crime ��� an undeaired
honor, and one w.hlch I mean to live
down if possible. They would Insist
on placing me on the list of notorieties*,
second only to the brothers Bid well
whose forgeries were executed to rob
the Bank of England of a million of
money. Our scheme was on a much
humbler scale, and whereas the Bid-
wells had ��5,000 capital our resources
were limited. That makes a great difference."
Out of the wealth of his experience
Barmash gives a hint to the "Old Lad*
of Threadneedle Street," which coming
from an undoubtedly well-informed
source and being offered In retribution,
is worthy of every consideration.
"The old-fashioned way of printing
bank notes In a dull, single ooiea
should," he said, "be changed, and each
note printed in many different celom.
This would prove too difficult to Imitate, and forgery would cease to pay
and thus stop.
"Even the much-vaunted, secretly
prepared water-mark paper on whlosj
bank notes are printed can be copied
to deceive an expert, and secret marks,
of which we hear so much, are nam
known to the public and the majority
of bank cashiers. Rainbow color printing is the only real remedy."
There la quite a tragedy ��� a grin*
tragedy ��� In Barmash trying to cash
a genuine Bank of England note.
"Memories of the forgeries still llnget
In the public mind, apparently, and
make them cautious," he said, and related how, after reporting himself at
Scotland Yard Immediately after his
release, he and his wife were unablt
to change the only money Uiey bad with
them���a five-pound note���a note above
all possible suspicion.
After trying in vain In several place*
they gave It up as hopeless and walked
home, lacking smaller change to pay
the omnibus fares.
After aP, Barmash thought, the punishment fitted the crime.

HUW  IT WORKED.
Wlfle'a Scheme to Cure Her Hnaband
of Exeeaalve Smoking-.
She read about it lu the buck of a
magazine. The advertisement said that
It was tasteless, that It could be administered in the breakfast coffee aud
that It would cure the most confirmed
smoker of the tobacco habit without
his knowledge.
To bo sure Elmer smoked only three
or four cigars a day. Still, why should
he smoke at all? Sbe didn't.
So she wrote for the cure, and In due
time It arrived in a plain sealed package with full Instructions Inside.
Unfortunately it arrived before she
was up. Elmer opened It, smiled to
himself, sealed it up again and said
nothing.
The next morning sbe gave blm his
first dose.
"This coffee has a bitter taste, hasn't
It?" he asked.
"Your stomach must be out of order," she answered. "It tastes all right
to me."
"Strange."
That night be brought home a large
new box of cigars. Usually after dinner be smoked once, but that night he
smoked all the cvculng. Tbe atmosphere was ih'ck.
The second morning he complained
again about the coffee's bitterness.
"Well, no wonder your taste is out of
order," she said reproachfully, "considering how you smoked last night."
"I've bad the most remarkable craving for tobacco lately," he muttered.
And at dusk bo brought home a costly meerschaum pipe and a pound of
Cavendish aud, shutting himself up in
the library, smoked like a forest fire
until bedtime.
"Hadn't we better change the coffee?
Surely you must have noticed its odd
taste," he said on the third morning.
"No, I haven't noticed it," she answered faintly.
He brought home from tbe city In the
evening a huge tin box of Egyptian
cigarettes, a hookah and a Jar of Turkish tobacco.
"I never enjoyed smoking as I've
done lately," be explained. "I can't
keep a cigar out of my mouth."
And that night be smoked cigars and
cigarettes, meerschaum and hookah till
be eaw her rise aud hurry, with a vindictive look, to tbe kitchen.
Following on tiptoe, he saw her unlock a drawer, take out a bottle that he
knew and pour its contents Into the
sink.  He chuckled.
And thereafter be complained no
more about tbe coffee and his tobacco
appetite shrunk back to its normal
proportions.���Chicago Kecord-Herald.
The   Nutmeg.
The nutmeg is the kernel of the fruit
of several species of trees growing wild
In Asia, Africa and America. The cultivated nutmeg tree is from fifty to
seventy feet high and produces fruit
for sixty years. The fruit Is of the
size and appearance of a roundish pear,
yellow In color. The fleshy part of the
fruit Is rather bard and resembles
candled citron. Within is the nut, enveloped In a curious yellowish red aril
known to us as mace. To prepare tbe
seeds for use they are dried in a moderate beat for about two months. Then
the shells are broken and the nutmegs
picked out and assorted, the Inferior
ones being reserved for the oil press.
As tbe essential oil of nutmeg brings
a high price, dishonest growers often
steep tbe nutmegs in hot water to extract the oil from them. They are
then coated with lime and sent Into
the channels of commerce. Such nutmegs are worthless, their aroma and
pungency having disappeared, these
qualities being due exclusively to the
oil. If on Inserting a pin no oil rushes
out to tbe surface, the nutmeg Is, to
all Intents and purposes, a wooden nutmeg. 	
Australia Has Deepest Gold Mine.
Australia now possesses the deepest
gold mine In the world. Within the last
few weeks the shafts at the New Chum
Railway at Bendigo, Victoria, have
been sunk to a depth of over 4,300 feet,
and the quartz there topped has been
sampled and crushed, with the result
that a yield of gold equal to an ounce
per ton has been obtained.
The operatflons in the mine have been
tested by Government officials, In view
of the fact that never before In the
world's history has gold been obtained
from so low a depth as three-quarters
of a mile.
The Victorian Director of Geology, EL
J. Dunn, In the course of an official report upon a sample from the 4,300-foot
shaft of the New Chum, writes:
"This remarkable specimen of auriferous quartz Is evidence of the vast
stores of wealth In gold possessed by
the State. It Is a guarantee of the
stability and progressive prosperity of
Bendigo that such rich ore exists at
such great depths. The winning of such
ore from a vertical depth of over three-
quarters of a mile from the surface Is
an achievement of which Bendigo miners may justly feel proud."
A Pulpit on Rails.
There has been completed recently a
very handsome pulpit for use In St.
Cuthbert's Church, Carlisle, and the
peculiarity about It is that It runs on
wheels. The structure Is made entirely
of mahogany, and measures 9 feet over
all In height, nearly 9 feet In width,
with a depth of 5 feet There are seven
steps up each side at the back. It Is
worked on a trolley and endless rope,
the wheels, which are covered with rubber, running In iron grooves let in the
stone floor. The system works very
smoothly, and the pulpit is wound in
and out before and after the sermon by
turning a whesel about twenty times.
The total cost was ��200. The pulpit
was consecrated by the Bishop of Carlisle. It is to be in perfect working order for Sunday next, and was used for
the first time yesterday. It Is the only
pulpit on rails consecrated bv a.
