"Dad"Allen, Ed.Nichol and
Leo Doiron Cross the
Great Divide.
One by one the connecting links between tho " palmy days " and Ihe present time drop fiom this mundane
Sphere, and no more painful duty falls
to our lot than to chronicle a call to the
Great Unseen of one of those rugged
pioneers who bln/.ed the trails and made
it possible for a boasted civilization to
follow their tortuous paths later. It is
doubly poignant for us to record tbe
passing of one for whom bloean City
and the whole country side now mourns.
John Patrick Allen, whose demise we
first record, was orte of those hardy
types of frontiersmen whom novelists
would lain weave a plot aoound. He
Was beloved by every man. When he
had advanced bevon.l man's allotted
span bis wasa familiar figure in the district, actively taking interest In everything which came along whether of
local or national importance. "Dad,"
as he was affectionately called by young
nnd old, was a philosopher, and be was
ollen asked to pass judgment on some
subject agitating* the public mind, and
liis Bumming up was always forceful
and convincing, with an undercurrent
of humor ever bubbling up.
He was born at Cushin, Orange eo.,
New York state, on St. Patrick's Day,
1828, and coming of devout Catholic
stock, be was named after Ireland's
patron paint. When quite young his
parents moved to Montreal, and there
he remained until man's estate was
reached. He went to California in the
early days ot the gold excitement, and
from there went to Nevada, eventually
arriving with his family tn Spokane in
1882, after crossing the Blue Mountains
of Oregon with mule teams. From
there he went to Fruillands, Stevens
Co., Wash.1 where he took up a homestead aud lived there until 1884, where
he left his family, and he joined tbe
rush to the Coeur d'Alene country the
same year.
He came to the Slocan country in
1802, aud engaged in the packing business, and in this capacity parked tbe
first ore shipped from the Freddy I ce
mine above Cody (or Jim Wardner. He
has sojourned here ever since, though
he has been in the habit of spending
the summer months in the Similkameen
and Nicola countries, where be has a
lot of mining interests. Ho leaves
three sons and one daughter to mourn
bis loss: R. E. Allen, of Slocan City,
contractor; J. E. and Frank Allen,
miners, who are now in Nevada, and
Mies Maggie Allen, of Los Angeles, Cal,
The veteran answered the final summons at 12.15 on Saturday morning last,
there being present at the dying man's
bedside his son Robert and a few friends,
also Rev. Fr. Joannntte, who administered the last rites of the church and
gave great comfort to the sinking man
and his grief-stricken friends. He
entered the long; lone trail happy and
peacefully sleeping.
The interment took place on Sunday
afternoon, Rev. Fr. Jeannotte officiat-
iag. A large cortege of citizens were in
attendance to take their last sal adieus
of the estimable pioneer. The pallbearers were F. Benson, S. N. Long. D.
St. Denis, N. Morrison, A. McVlcarand
A. Madden, all of Slocan. Floral offerings were sent from Mrs. Ceding, a
cross; Mrs. McVicar, a cress; Mrs.
Hicks a wreath, and Mrs. McNeish a
bouquet of white cryHanthemunis
The sad news reached the Slocan on
Thursday of the death of Edwin Nichol,
a greatly respected and well known
mining man of Sandon, whicli occurred
at Vancouver the previous dny. The
deceased was 40 years of age and unmarried
Botli as a miner and prospector he
haB worked in the Slocan for mnny
years. His last venture was with
G. F. Ransom and C. Weinant on a
lease of tbo Slocan Sovereign, from
which Ed. retired last summer and left
for the coast. His death came as a
great shock to m all, as his hardiness
and robust appearance betokened a
long and useful life. He was a prominent member of the Saudon branch
of the W.P. of M., and took a great ip-
terest in the Socialist incvenient, but
he was popular with men of all shades
of polities. He was also a member of
the K. of P. who arranged tbe funeral.
He was ill but three days, pneumonia
being the cause of death. He hailed
from Ontario, and has relatives at
Maple Creek, Alta.
Another to lake bis departure into
the Great Unseen was a link with early
days. Leo Doiron ended bis life in tho
nertb by jumping from a steamer recently. Together with W. Milk and
W. Lawson ho left for the north last
summer, but prior to his leaving, whilst
working at the Ottawa mine he received
a heavy blow on h.s head from a fulling
rock, wlllbh affected him so much that
eventually he committed the rash act.
He was n brother of .loseph Doiron, who
perished in a snowslide in the Slo.an a
few years'Sgo.
A Government Smelter Needed.
We nre of the ortinion tbat the British
Columbia Government should build,
own and operate a smelter. Some day
this will come to pass just as sure as
Cansda now owns and operates a mint.
A government which has enough
originality and backbone to accomplish
this will have the solid backing and
sympathy of the interior, and there are
no reasons other than ones of sentiment
why tbe remainder of the province
should not fall in line. The government would havo the solid support of
labor, for that would be the first step
towards a more ujinprehensivo public
ownership. Tliey would havo tho backing ol tbe mine owners and managers,
for it would eliminate tbe ever-existing
company-owned smelter problem, and
give a fillip to a permanent industry
which is ever CRTING FOR SUCCOR.
Why this is eo we are not prepared to
deul with in this article, but it is nevertheless a fact and n standing reproach
lo t hie glorious province and its much
flaunted mineral wealth. The present
system is rotten, for the smelter now
{.laying a lone hand can dictate its own
terms, and the minor owners are g>ad-
ually being frozen out; therefore the
government would have tbe undivided
sympathy and support of the Sloram
for these reasons and others which are
With tbe opening of tbe Ottawa mint
there comes to ns all a longing
that Reciprocity between tbe broad
Dominion and Britisli Columbia, with
its known mineral wealth, will one day
be established, but this much to be desired state will never be if private
corporations continue to control and
regulate the output of metals from our
With its many developed and partly
developed mines, the " Silvery Slocan "
offers to such a projoct a prolific yieid,
and by reason ot its central location in
this banner district, Slocan lake is th e
one spot for a government smelter. Tbe
many big producing mines of Silverton
ure now proving ft big factor in tbe
silver output of the province. With all
these mines, which include the Vancouver, Hewitt, Wakefield, Standard,
Emily Edith, Canadian and Buffalo all
Bteadily shipping, they alone warrant
the suggestion.
Then all tbe mines contiguous to the
Slocan City camp, including tho Arlington, Ottawa, Enterprise, Wostmont and
Hampton would send their quota, add
to whicli regular shipments from the
Molly Hughes, Neepewa and ether lakeside properties already opened up. It
would also mean the opening up and
exploiting on a large scale many mines
with known todies of ore of a grade
which by reason of a present existing
high freight and treatment rate cannot
ba touched with profit. We do not
anticipate the Bosun, Mountain Cliief
or tho Hnrtney to remain idle forever.
Those nnd many other mines in tbe
district, are not lying dormant for tbe
fun of the thing. Nor must it he sup-
poser! that they have petered out and
that the owners bave lost faith in them.
Far from it, as the prohibitive prices
put upon these dormant mines
imply otherwise. Then there is n
reason for thiB stagnation, ami it is up
to the government, to authorize a Royal
Commission or work out the salvation
nf a district which will play a prominent part in tlie future mineral supply'
of the world.
From Three Forks by wagon road
could be brought tbe ore from the Lone
Bachelor, McAllister, Cinderella, Idaho,
Alamo, (.ne. n liesa, Alps and Alturas,
and it would require no great feat to
ronnect wilh a good road Jackson
Basin and Whitewater. The trunk
road between New Denver nnd Snndon
could be fixed up at a nominal Cost and
ell thu latier's big mines would have an
economical and more satisfactory market for their ores. With tbe properties
we have mentioned supplemented by
such steady shippers as the Sunset, La��t
Chance, Rambler Cariboo, Ruth, Lucky
Jim, Eureka, Sovereign, Star, Mountain Con, Elkhorn and all tho big
producers at Whitewater and tlie mines
contiguous to the south fork of Kaslo
creek, we feel that the venture would
be a financial success. In fact, the
mine owners of the province would hail
the advent of a government run Binelter
with joy.
We commend the suggestion to tbe
serious consideration of the Legislature
now about to go into session.

Operetta Was Repeated.
A large audience witnessed tbe second
performance of " The Four-Leaved
Clover " by the children of New Denver
at tho Bosun Hall, on Saturday evening
last, and it was generally voted '0 be
better all round than when presented
on Christmas Eve, which is saying a
great deal. The applause at times was
deafening, the audience demanding a
repetition of several features. Mi is
Marie Munay's sword dance fairly
brought down the house. At the conclusion tho audience called for Mr.
T. Rankine, and three cheers were
given for hlm and his wife, thuy lutving
borne the labor of this gorgeous production. A large crowd of Silverton
people were uresent.

Our Fruit Growers' Column.
It is worth recording that ploughing
was possible on the 17th of Dec. A
slight covering of snow had kept what
little frost there has been oat of the
ground; a few years ago it was possible to plough on the day after Xmas
and on that occasion there was no snow
to protect the ground.
To sum up the ndvice of the last
article, let us endeavor to tike better
care of the manure made by the animals in this neighborhood and this may
be most readily done by composting it
with earth; let us also endeavor to
save tbe liquid portion, for wc sha U
get more speedy results by the app'fl
cation of liquid manure than from the
solid portion.
If we are unable to take better care
of farmyard manure, the next best
thing possible is to hiul it out and apply it direct to the land. In this case
it had better be ploughed in us soon as
possible, especially in hot weather,
when the sun's heat would rapidly evaporate the ammonia. In winter, manure mny often lie spread with great
advantage on top of a clover sod.
i Little will then be lost by evaporation
land little by leiching, as the clover
' roots will be reidy to make use of it.
Careful experiments have been made
to test the results to be obtained by
the use of manure that had been properly composted as compared with
manure that has been treated in our
accustomed style; the Jesuits have
often shown ns much as three times
the increased yield of potatoes and
double the quantity of wheat.
Whilst writing these articles it has
been forcibly presented to myself that
I should have been much better off if
instead off working hard us in times
past to haul manure up to my farm I
had set to work to make some proper
arrangements to take care of the manure made by the animals on the place,
and especially if I had taken the
trouble to make n cistern to catch the
liquids. There is one point which
makes this saving of liquid manure
especially important to us in the
Slocnn, and that is the extreme scarcity of litter; in the average farming
district there is abundance of straw:
in the old country great quantities of
peat moss is nlso used, and is also a
most excellent absorbent. But here
where there is no hay to be got, and
no moss litter, we lose far more than
even the ordinary loss of the average
Composting manure has another good
effect besides saving a great part of
its valuable constituents, for by keeping the manure for a time a great
many of the weed seeds can be destroyed and thus one of the great objections to the use of fresh manure
can be done away with. Moreover,
fresh manure is injurious to certain
crops. It tends to produce scab
amongst potatoes by setting up fermentation iu the soil; it rends to
make carrots split open and parsnips
misshapen; it does not incorporate
readily with the soil and is a nuisance
in preparing n seed bed in a garden, so
that the extra labor of preparing compost will probably be amply compensated .
The full value of farmyard manure
cannot be estimated alone by its chemical composition, as besides its value
as a source of plant food it has a very
marked effect, in improving the mechanical nature of the soil: by the
addition of a few hundredweight of
chemicals a piece of stiff clay land
might be made as rich chemically as
by the addition of many ton. of barnyard manure, but preserve nie from
having to grow crops in such land so
manured. Wo know what a heavy indigestible mass we should have to deal
with in one case, and what a line tilth
can be got even in heavy clay land by
skilful work and the use of barnyard
manure. The fibre in the manure acts
like a sponge also and helps to retain
the moisture in the soil.

It is greatly feared that W, McDe-

City, and Norman Cressfield, a young
Englishmen, have gone to their death
in a snowslide on Cariboo creek.
Both men had been working at the
Millie Mack mine, a property eaat of
Burton, and owned by Mr. Foster of
Three Fotke. They left the mine on
the 2-lth ult. to spend Christmas with
their fi-iends in town, and their non-
arrival caused Mr. Porter, of Burton,
to make the trip to the mine, to ascertain if they left.
No trace has been found of the men,

Hewitt Has Enough Milling
Ore Blacked Out For A
Two Years' Wm.
Last week 472 tons of ore was shipped
irom Silverton Minos.
Several hours were spent last Sunday
loading tbe steamer Slocan with Silver-
ton ore, and thu wharf is now crowded
with ore again.

figures tell their own story :

Ai, Ihe Hewitt mine, tliey have just
got through a busy mouth, having
shipped in that timet, Ave cars of ore of
an average net value of 141.6 ozs. silver
ind 5 per cent lead. The tram is now
ready for conveying tho ore from the
mine to tbe Wakefield mill, on whicli
tho new company has a lease and a
two years option, but the mill iB now
being-Tented and operated by the Vancouver Co., who will shortly make
their final cleanup that the new company may take possession, This, we
understand is the reason for the laying
off of a large portion of the Vancouver
working force. The new tram was
given a trial spin a few days ago, and
everything worked boautifu'dy. We
are credibly informed tbat enough Hewitt ore is blocked out to keep tbo mill
running for two years. This mill has
been treating lately about 136 tons a
day, but the Hewitt people will not
crowd it, and it is thought that 110 or
112 tons a day will be the amount
treated. At tho mine there aro 23 men
As the Vancouver mine is reported
to bo looking well and a tremendous
amountof ore has been stoped, Silverton
people realize that the lay-off ia but

consideration fully expect tbo Vancouver people to constiuct a concentrator
for their own   use.

Vancouver, B.C., Dec. 30, '07.
J. C. Harris, Esq., New Denver, B.C.
My dear Mr. Harris : I have received your favor, and should have answered it sooner only that 1 have been
waiting for a meeting of the Committee of the Board of Horticulture,
which meets in Victoria one day this
week, to arrange for tho campaign of
orchard cleaning for the entire season.
I have not forgotten my promise to
New Denver, and shall make it a point
to have Mr. C. B. Twigg, if he is
available, take the field at an early
date, early in January, I would say.
Wo havo the whole province to
cover, and a limited amount of money
to spend; therefore, I am the more
anxious to distribute it fairly and carefully. There will be no nonsense about
thu enforcement of the regulations
from wow on, Parties who will not
cleanse tlieir orchards will lose tlfbir
trees. This is tho only possible solution oi the business.
You will have seen how we susceed-
in England, Scotland and Ireland. Wo
captured practically everything on sight
with Biitish Columbia fruit. Not only
that, but we have Compelled tho Hood
River people to lower their colors for
the first timo fn tbe histury of that very
important fruit district.
1 regard this latter success as far the
most significant, inasmuch as Hood
River and \Venatcheo are regarded as
the highest types ol American horticulture
As you are aware, \ye can only retain

The "doctSr knew that at least a
dozen individuals were waiting for
him that moment; but still he was
in no hurry, he said, and so for half
an hour longer he sat there talking
of Guy, and Jessie, and Aikenside,
and wondering be bad never before
observed how very becoming a white
wrapper was to sick girls like Maddy
Clyde. Had he been asked the question, he could not have told whether
his other patients were habited in
buff,.or brown, or tan color; but be
knew all about Maddy's garb, any!
thought the dainty frill around her
slender throat tbe prettiest "puckered
piece" that be had even seen. Now,
then, was Dr. Holbrook losing his
heart to thnt little girl of fourteen
and a half? He did not think so.
Indeed, he did not think anything
about his heart, though thoughts of
Maddy Clyde were pretty constantly
with him, as after leaving her he
paid his round of visits.
The Aikenside carriage was standing at Mrs. Conner's gate when he
returned, and Jessie came running out
to meet him, followed by Guy, while
Agnes, in the most becoming riding
habit, sat by the window, looking as
unconcerned at liis arrival as if it
were not the v.ery event for which
she had been impatiently waiting.
Jessie was a great pet with the doctor, and, lifting her lightly in his
arms, he kissed her forehead where
the golden curls were clustering and
said to  ber:
"I have seen Maddy Clyde. She
asked for you, and why you do not
come to see her, as you promised."
"Mother won't let me," Jessie t*,P-
swered. "Sbe says they are not fr**
associates for a Remington."
There was a sudden flash of con
tempt on. tbe doctor's face, and ���
gleam of wrath in Agnes' eyes as she
motioned Jessie to be.silent, and then
gracefully received the doctor,*.who
by this time was in the room. As
if determined to monopolize the co*i
verstttion. and keep it from turning
on the Markhams, Agnes rattle on
for nearly fifteen minutes, scared,*
allowing Guy a chance for uttering ���*���
word. But Guy bided his time, and
seized the tirrt favorable opportunitv
to  inquire  nfter  Mndeline.
She was improving rapidly, tbe doe-
tor said, adding: "You ought to havo
seen ber delight when I gave her you>*
"Indeed," ami Agnes bridled
haughtily, "I did not know that Guj
was in the habit of sending bouquets
to such as this Clyde girl. I really
must report him to Miss Atherstone,1'
Guy's seat was very near to Agnes
and while u cloud overspread his flni
features, be said to her In nn aside
"Please sny in your report that the
worst thing about this Clyde girl if>
that she aspires to be a teucher, and
possibly  a governess."
There wns nn emphasis on the lf.pt
word which silenced Agnes and set
her to beating her French gniter on
the carpet; while Guy, turning ba*?k
to the doctor,  replied to his remnrk:
"She wns pleased, then?"
"Yes; she must be vastly fond of
flowers, though I sometimes fancied
that the fact of being noticed by you
afforded almost as much satisfaction
as the bouquet itself. She evidently
regards you as n superior being, and
Aikenside as a second Paradise, nnd
asking innumerable questions about
you and Jessie too."
"Did sbe honor me with an inquiry?" Agnes \sked, sarcastically,
though she was greatly interested as
well ns relieved  by the reply.
"Yes; she sin ' she heard Jessie's
mother was a b'lutiful woman, and
asked if you were not bom in England."
"She's mixed me np with Luc;.
Guy. you must p down and enlighten her." *\.m*. aid Baughing merrily and appenri* ������ more at ease than
she had since !���' My Clvde had been
the  subject  of  conversation,
Guy did not _*< down to Honedale-
but fruit and fl *,* ,>rs, and once a bot
tie of rare old v *ne, found their way
to the old red cottage, always brought
by Guy's man Duncan, nnd always
accompanied with Mr. Remington's
compliments. Once, bidden among the
rosebuds, was n childish note from
Jessie, some of it printed nnd some
of it in tbe uneven bund of a child
just commencing to write.
It was as follows:
"Dear Maddy I think thnt jr such
a pretty name, and so does Guy, nnd
so does the doctor, too. I want to
come see-you but mamma won't let
me. I think of you ever so much.
and so docs Guy I guess, for he sends
you lots of things. Guy is a nice brother, and is most as old as mamma

"Jessie* -\gnes  Remington.
"I'S ��� I nm going to tuck this in
Just for fun right nninng the buds.
where   yon   n ��� *.("   look   for   It."
This note Mnddy read and reread
until she knew it by heart, partic*--
lnrly the part relating to Guy. Hitherto she had not particularly liked
ber name, greatly preferring that it
sbould bnve been Eliza Ann, or Sarah
Jane; but the knowing that Guy Remington fancied it made a vast difference and did much toward reconciling
ber. She did not even notice the
clause, "and the doctor, too." His
attentions nnd likings she took as a
matter of course, so quietly and so
constantly had they been given. The
day wns very long now which did
not bring him tn the cottage; but she
missed him much as she would bnve
missed her brother, if she had one,
though her pulso nlwnvR quickened
and ber cheeks glowed when sbe heard
him nt the gate. The motive power
did not lie deeper than a great
friendliness for one who had been
instrumental in saving her life. Tbey
had talked over the mutter of her
examination, the doctor blaming himself more than was necessary for his
ignornnee ns to what wns requited of
a tencher; but when she asked who
wns his proxy, he bad again answered, evasively*
"A  friend  from   Boston."
And this he did to shield Guy,
who he knew was enshrined in the little maiden's heart as a paragon of
gil  excellence.
Latterly the doctor had taken to
driving in his buggy, and when Maddy was strong enough he took her
with him one day, himself adjusting
the shawl which grandma wrapped
around her, and pulling a little farther on the white sunbonnet which
shaded the sweet, pale fnce. where
the roses were just beginning to
bloom again. The doctor was very
happy that morning, and so, too, wns
Maddy, talking to him upon the
theme of which Rbe never tired, Guy
Remington, Jessie, nnd Aikenside.
Was it as beautiful a place an she
had heard it was, and didn't he think
it would  bo delightful  to live there?
"I suppose Mr Guy will be bringing a wife tbere some day when he
finds one," and leaning back in the
buggy Maddy heaved n little sigh,
not at thoughts of Guy Remington's
wife, but because she began to feel
tired, and thus gnve vent to her weariness.
The doctor, however, did not so
construe it. He beard the sigh, and
for the first time when listening to
her as she talked of Guy, a keen throb
of pnin shot through his heart, a
something as near akin to jealousy
as it wns possible for him to feel.
But all unused as be was to the workings of love, he did not at that moment dream of such an emotion in
connection with Madeline Clyde. He
only knew that something affected
him unpleasantly, prompting him, for
some reason, to tell Maddy Clyde
about Lucy Atherstone. who, in all
probability, would one day come to
Aikenside as its mistress.
"Yes, Guy will undoubtedly marry," he began, just as over the top
of tbe easy hill tbey were ascending
horses' heads were visible, and the
Aikenside carriage appeared in view.
"There he is now," he exclaimed,
adding quickly. "No; there's.only a
lady inside.    It must be Agnes."
It was Agnes driving out alone,
for the sole purpose of passing a
place which bad a singular attraction
for her. the old red cottage in Honedale. She recognized the doctor, nnd
guessed whom he had with him. Putting up her glass, for which she had
no more need than Jessie, sho scrut-
inized tbe little figure bundled up
in shawls, while she smiled her sweetest smile upon the doctor, showing
to advantage her white teeth, and
shaking back her wealth of curls *with
the air and manner-of a young coquettish girl.
"Oh, what a handsome lady I Who
is she?" Maddy asked, turning to look
after the carriage now swiftly descending the hill.
"That was Jessie's mother, Mrs.
Agnes Remington," the doctor replied.
"She'll feel flattered with your compliment."
"I did not mean to flatter. I said
wbat I thought. She is handsome,
beautiful, and so young, too. Was
that a gold brucelet that flashed so
on her arm?"
The doctor presumed it was, though
be had not noticed. Gold bracelets
were not new to bim as they were to
Maddy. who continued:
"I wonder if I'll wear a bracelet
like   tbat?"
"Would you like to?" the doctor
asked, glancing nt tbe small white
wrist, around which the dark calico
sleeve wiih closely buttoned, and
thinking bow much prettier and modest-looking it was than Agnes' half-
bare arms, where tbe ornaments were
"Y-e-s," came hesitatingly from
Maddy, who had a strong passion for
jewelry. "I guess I would, though
grandpa classes all such things with
tbe pomps and vanities which I must
renounce when I  get to be good."
"And w.ben will that be?" the doctor asked.
Again Maddy sighed, as she replied:
"1 cannot tell I thought so much
about it while I was sick, that is,
when I conld think; but now I'm better, it goes from me some. I know
it is wrong, but I cannot help it.
I've seen only n bit of pomp and
vanity, but I must say that I like
what I bave seen, and wish to see
more. It's very wicked, I know,"
she kept on, as she met tbe gueer
expression of the doctor's face; "and
I know you think me so bad. You
are a Christian,  I suppose?"
Tbere was a strange light in tlie
doctor's eye as he answered, half
sadly: "No, Muddy, I am not what
you call a Christian. I have not renounced the pomps and vanities yet.''
"Oh, I'm so sorry," and Maddy's
eyes expressed all tbe sorrow she professed to feel. "YoU*, ought to be,
now you've got so old."
The doctor colored crimson, and
stopping hiB horse under the dim
shadow of a maple in a little hollow,
he said:
"I'm not so very old, Maddy; only
twenty-five ��� only ten years older
than yourself; and Ague's' Husband
was more than twenty years hei senior."
The doctor did not know why he
dragged that last in, when it had
ndlTitng whatever to do with their
conversation; but as the most trivial
thing often leads to great results, so
from the pang caused by Maddy s
thinking him so old. was born the
first real consciousness he had ever
had that the little girl beside him
was very dear, and that the ten years'
difference between them might prove
a most impassable gulf. With this
feeling, it was exceedingly painful for
him to hear Maddy's sudden exclamation:
"Oh, oh I over twenty yenrs���that's
dreadful. Sbe must be 'most glad
he's dead. I would not marry a man
more than five years older than I."
"NoJ if you loved him, and he loved
you very, very dearly?" tbe doctor
asked, his voice low and tender in
its tone.
Wholly unsuspicious of the wild
storm beating in his heart, Mnddy
untied ber white sunbonnet, and, taking it in her lap. smoothed back
her soft hnir saying, with a long
breath: "Oh. Cm so bot," and then,
as just thinking of his question, replied: "1 shouldn't love him���I couldn't. Grnndmn is five years younger

Imagined, she thought, as she went
slowly tn the house and entered the
nent. kitchen, where her grandmother
snt shelling pens for dinner, and her
grandfather in his leathern chair was
whispering over bis weekly paper.
"Did you meet a grand lady in a
carriage?" grandma asked, as Maddy snt down  beside her.
"Yes; nnd Dr. Holbrook said it was
Mrs. Remington, from Aikenside, Mr.
Guy's stepmother, and that she was
more than twenty years younger than
her husband���isn't it dreadful? I
thought so; but tbe doctor didn't seem
to," and in a perfectly artless manner Maddy repeated much of the conversation which had passed between
the doctor snd herself, appealing to
her grandlna to know if she had not
taken the right side of the argument.
"Yes, child, you did," and grandma's hands lingered among the light,
green peas in her pan, as if she were
thinking of an entirely foreign subject. "I know nothing about this
Mrs. Remington, only that she stared
a good deal at the house as she went
by, even looking at us through a glass
and lifting her spotted veil after sbe
got by. She may have been as happy
as a queen with her man, but as a
general thing these unequal matches
don't work, and had better not be
thought on. S'posin' you sbould
think you was in love with somebody,
and in a few years, when you got older, be sick of him. It might do
him a sight of barm. That's what,
spoilt your poor grentuucle Joseph,
who's been in the hospital at Worcester nine years."
"It was1" And Maddy's face was
all aglow with the interest.she always
evinced whenever mention was made
of the one great living sorrow of
her grandmother's life���the shattered
intellect and isolation from the world
of her youngest brother, wbo, as she
said, had for nearly nine long years
been an inmate of a madhouse.
"Tell me about it," Maddy continued, bringing a pillow, and lying
down upon tbe faded lounge beneath
the  window.
"There is no great to tell, only he
was many years younger than I. He's
only forty-one now, and was thirteen
years older than the girl he wanted.
Joseph was smart and handsome, and
a lawyer, and folks said a sight too
good for the girl, whose folk were
just nothing, but she had a pretty
face, and ber long curls bewitched
him. She couldn't have been older
than you when he first saw her, and
she was only sixteen when they got
engaged. Joseph's life was bound up
in her; he worshiped the very air
she breathed, and whfJn she mittened
him, it almost took his life. He was
too old for her, and then right on
top of that we heard after a little that
she had married some big bug, I
never knew who. plenty old enough
to be ber father. That settled it with
Joseph; he went into a kind of melancholy, grew worse aud worse, till we
put bun in the hospital, usin' his
little property to pay tbe bill until
it was all gone and now he's ou charity, you know, exceptin' what we
do. That's what 'tis about your Uncle Joseph, and 1 warn all young girls
ot thirteen or fourteen not to think
too much of nobody. Tbey are bound
to get sick of 'em, and it makes dreadful  work." ���
Grandma hnd nn object in telling
this to Mnddy for she was not blind
to tbe nature ol the doctor's interest
in ht-r child, nnd though ft gratified
her pride, she felt that it must not
be, both for bis sake and Maddy's,
so Rhe told tbe sad story of Uncle
Joseph as n warning to Maddy, who
conld scarcely bo said to need it.
Still it made an impreRsion on her.
nnd all that afternoon she waB thinking of the unfortunate man, whom she
had seen but once, nnd that in his
prison home, where she had been
with her grandfather the only time
she had ever ridden in the cars. He

She would ask if it was not so, and
she did.
"Yes. Sarah Morris, that was her
name, and her fnce was handsome as

Tragic Fato of the Hero of mm War of
One of ihe dates which Mexicans
celebrate In the most solemn manner
IS thut of Hie death of Hidulgo. the old
priest wiio. being in his eighties, dared
to face the colonial ���government and
started tbe revolution which ended in
the independence of Mexico.
Hidnlf-n was shot In the early days
of the war of Independence. It is well
known that he asserted on different
occasions with the strong lirmness of a
prophet that he was too old to see the
end of the fight and that he would be
sacrificed before the end. He started
the rebellion at dawn on the 10th of
Septetnlio., and for the first days he
round no serious opposition on the
part of the Spanish troops. His lirst
journeys met with great success, aud
In n very few days he was at the head
of a large army, and it seemed as if
nothing could resist hlm.
He attacked Guanajuato and Ih a
few hours took the city. He then
marched In the direction of the capital,
and when he arrived at Las Cruecs, in
the mountains which bound the valley
of Mexico on the southwest, his army
numbered more than 100,000 men. The
Spanish troops faced him at Las
Cruces, but were defeated.
Hldnlgn could then have attacked the
city and taken It without great effort,
but he turned back, however. Historians have discussed this action, aud
almost all of tliem admit that his hesitation nud bis final retirement after
dctnry was a great mistake and resulted in the continuation of the war
ior ten years longer.
St'll it Is said that Hidalgo was moved by a humanitarian idea. Ills army
had no discipline. It was merely a
mob that In Guanajuato after tbe triumph had stained Its banner with robbery and disorder. He feared that this
mob. Intoxicated by triumph, would
fnll on the City of Mexico and repent
the scenes of Guanajuato.
. He retired, and then defent began,
'���he Spanish forces were organized
mid re-enforced, and at tbe same time
dissension started In tlie insurgent army. Hidalgo was defeated ut Colder
on and marched north, pursued by tbe
Spanish troops. At a place known as
Norlas de Bajan he fell Into an ambuscade and tt*ns captured with many
of his companions, lie was taken""to
Chihuahua, where bo was shot on the
30th of .Inly. 1811.
The head of Hidalgo was cut off and
placed in an iron case at one of the
corners of the Granadltas fortress,
where he had obtained bis first great
victory From there it was taken
twelve years later, when the war was
euded, in 1S23, and brought to Mexico, being placed in ono of the altars
of the grand cathedral.

You do not feel so young as you

And you have dull heavy pains in the

Almost daily we hear of aged people whose pains and aches huve boon
overcome    and    whose life  bus  been
made more comfortable and more
happy by the use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Mr. James J. Jenaon, Olds, Alta..
writes: "I have been troubled considerably with lame back, which I
suppose came from dej-angements of
tbe kidneys, and I bnve never baen
able to find a treatment that was so
prompt and effective in curing this
aibnent as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills. At two different times in my
life this preparation has entirely
cured me of this trouble, and of late
years 1 bnve found it unnecessary to
use any medicine whatever. I feel
it my duty to add this statement to
the manv others whicli I see in recommendation of this excellent medicine."

5 per ceut ou Its paid up capital, lu
establishing the systdn the question
of compensation does not appear to
have presented much difficulty. When
the Samlag was Introduced two kinds
of licenses ��� were In existence���first,
those grunted annually or for a term
not exceeding five years, aud, second,
privileged licenses, grouted for the life
of the licensee. In the case of the first
no compensation whatever was paid to
those dispossessed of their licenses.
In regard to the latter compensation
was granted ln the form of an annuity,
equal to the average yearly profits for
the three years preceding the suppression of tbe license.
With these provisions the alms and
principles of the Samlag are summarized as follows: The elimination of
private profit and securing the monopoly value for tbe public, Insuring highest quality of liquors sold, the reduction of the number of licenses, the
easy enforcement of the law, the destruction of the power of the spirit

Tells How Any One Can Prepare Simple Home-Made Mixture, Said To
Overcome Rheumatism
There is so much rheumatism here
now that the following advice by an
eminent authority, who writes for
readers of a large Montreal daily paper, will be highly appreciated by
those  who  suffer:
Get from any good pharmacy one-
half ounce Fluid Extract Dandelion,
one ounce Compound Kargon, three
ounces of Compound Syrup Sursapu-
rilla. Shake these well in a bottle
and take in teaspoonful doses after
each meal and at bedtime; also drink
plenty of good water.
It is claimed that there are few victims of this dread and tortuous disease who will fail to find ready relief
in this simple home-made mixture,
and in most cases a permanent cure
is the result.
This simple recipe is said to
strengthen and cleanse the elimina-
tive tissues of tbe Kidneys so that
tbey can filter and strain from tlie
blood and system tbe poisons, acids
and waste matter, wliich cause not
only Rheumatism, but numerous other
diseases. Every man or woman here
who fools that their kidneys are not
healthy and active, and who suffer
from any urinary trouble whatever,
should not hesitate to make up this
mixture, as it is certain to do much
good, and may save you firm much
misery   and  suffering  after  awhile.

Amusing   Story   of   a   Murderer   Who
Refuted to   Be   Released.
Monaco bas no guillotine and no
executioner and, indeed, no arrangements for dealing with criminals.     ���
It is the place" to recall the amusing
story told by Maupassant about a murderer who was tried, convicted and
sentenced to death. In Monte Carlo.
The authorities asked France to loan,
them M. Deihler and his little instru-J
ment, th�� -red widow." The French
government consented to oblige for tbd
consideration of. ��1,000. Tbe prince
thought this too dear and so applied
to bis brother of Italy. Italy offered,
to -So the thing, all Included, for ��680.
This again was found too dear. "The
man is not worth it" said the Mone-,
gasque authorities.
So the senteiee of death was commuted to one of life imprisonment.;
But tbere was no prison in Monaco,;
and a gaol had to be erected for thej
express purpose of confining this murderer, and a jailer had to be appointed.,
Tbis state of Pvings lasted for some(
mouths, and tben the jailer died.
Tbe authorities at Monte Carlo, when
considering the appointment of hls|
successor, came to tbe conclusion thati
the man, tbe one prisoner, was costing
the state a great deal of money. So a'
commission visited him and told hlml
that In future he would be required to*
act as bis own jailer. He grumbled a.
bit at this Increase of sentence, butj
complied. His meals used to* be sent
down to him from one of the hotels ln
the town, but one duy tlie scullion pho,
brought him his dinner did not turn up
to time, and so the prisoner walked up1
to the hotel and took his meal there.
After that be got into tbe habit of going up to the hotel for his meals. Then,
after a stroll on the front, he used to;
return to his prison and shut himself
In, carefully bolting tbe door inside.
But again the authorities found tbat
he was costing them too much, and so,
one day they called him up and told
him thnt they were sick of seeing him
���about the place and that he mnst clear,
out. He emphatically refused to do
anything of the kind. "You sentenced
me to penal servitude for life," be ar
gued, "and I expect to work out my
sentence. I have no moans of earning
a livelihood since you created all the'
bother, and It Is to you that I look for
my sustenance." *
To cut a long story short, the principality of Monaco was obliged to
settle an annuity of ��24 a year upon
the convict before he would consent
to accept bis freedom and leave the
country. As soon as this was arranged he took up his abode In n little
cottage just over the Monaco border.
This la a true story, and the document fixing the man's pension, together with details about the payments, may be seen In the Monaco archives.
The late Prince de Monaco was fond
of telling this story In Parisian drawing rooms, and, If I remember aright,
I heard it on the same occasion as did
the late Guy de Maupassant���London
Mall.  '
Sydney Smith's Joke.
Sydney Smith was very happy In his
country life, and bis children caught
his spirit of delight over common
things. They loved animals and spent
long hours In training, them. One little beast, a baby donkey, became under
their tuition perhaps the most accomplished of bis species and unconsciously gave rise to a quatrain which now
belongs to the fame of Sydney Smith.
The donkey was a well educated chap.
He would walk upstairs, follow thej
family in their rambles like a dog and
when they entered his meadow run to]
meet them with ears down and tail
erect, braying Joyously,
One day, when Billy's bead was.
crowned with flowers and he was being trained with a handherchief for a
bridle, Mr. Jeffrey unexpectedly arrived. He Joined In the sport nnd, to,
the children's delight mounted Billy.
Thus he was proceeding in triumph,
when Sydney Smith and bis wife, with
three friends, returned from a walk'
and took In the festal scene. The great;
man advanced, with extended bands,
and greeted bis old friend ln an impromptu which has become familiar
to the reading world:
Witty as Horatlus Placcus,
As great a Jacobin as Gracchus,
Short, though not as fat as Bacchus,
Seated on a little Jackass!

Railway Companies at Solicitation of
Board of Tr?.de Offer Inducements
to   Farmers to Ship  Grain   at  Once
At a recent meeting of the Winnipeg Board of Trade a question that
was discussed at some leirgth was
that of urging upon the farmers of
I the west the advisability of marketing their grain as early as possible
tbis fall. The view held is that the
present good prices prevailing for
grain, together with tlie stringency of
the money market, makes it desirable
in tlie interests of the farmers and the
country generally that the crop should
be marketed without unnecessary delay. The following resolution was
passed  by tlie Board:
1. "Wliile it is contrary to the usage of the Winnipeg Board of Trade
to offer advice as to the disposition
of the crop, yet in view of tlie fact,
now evident, that a large quantity
of this year's grain crop is of low
grade, for which ut the present time
good prices can be obtained, this
Board considers it in the interests
of the farmers and therefore of the
country generally, that these facts be
given all possible publicity, and
farmers urged to market early, especially their grains of low grade, thus
taking advantage of tlie good prices
now prevailing.
2. "This Board also points out as
an additional reason for early marketing, the present extreme stringency
in the money market, which makes
it highly necessary that nil liabilities
should be liquidated as speedily as
possible, and such speedy liquidation
can only be accomplished by the
prompt disposal of the grain crop.
3. "It is also desirable in view of
the above conditions that farmers
and tbe railway companies combine
to move, if possible, the whole of the
low grade grain before the close of
navigation, and this Board will gladly assist in every possible way to
bring about so desirable a result.
4. "As a means of accomplishing
this, the railway companies, at the
solicitation of this Board, have issued
the following order regarding minimum  weights:
" 'In order to encourage the early
movement of low grade and light
weight grains, the following regulation will apply until December 1st,
11107: When cars loaded with grain
tc their full visible capacity show an
out-turn less than tariff minimums.
actual weight only will be charged
for,, subject to a minimum of 40,000
lbs. for oats, and 50,000 lbs. for wheat,
barley,  flaxseed,  rye  and  speltz.'
5. "This resolution to be communicated to all Western Boards of Trade,
nnd their co-operation requested in
making these facts and recommendations widely known."
A Famous Retreat
The late Gen. Schoneld was once
describing in Washington a certain
retreat of,cavalry.
"I call it a retreat," he said, "but
j should really call it a rout."
He smiled.
"In this great retreat," he went on,
"the commanding general, as his
charger tore along like the wind,
turned to an aide who galloped beside him, and said:
" 'Who  are  our  rear guard?'
"The aide, without ceasing for an
instant to belabor his panting steed,
" 'Those who have the poorest
horses, sir.'"
A Corporal's Lesson.
During the Revolutionary war the
captain of a little band of soldiers wns
giving orders about a heavy beam that
tbey we're endeavoring to raise to the
top of some military works which they
were repairing. The weight was almost beyond their power, and the
voice of the superintendent was often
heard shouting at tbem. An officer
not la military costume was passing
and asked the superintendent why he
did not render a little aid. The latter,
astonished, turned around, with the
pomp of an emperor, and said, "Sir, I
am a corporal!"
"You are, are you? I ask your pardon, Mr. Corporal," and, taking off his
bat be bowed, saying, "I was not
aware of tbat." v
Upon tbis he dismounted and pulled
until great drops of perspiration stood
on his forehead. When tbe beam waa
raised, turning to tbe little great man,
he snld, "Mr. Corporal, when you have
another such job and not enough men
send for your commander ln chief and
I will gladly come and help you a second time."
The little corporal was thunderstruck. It was Washington wbo thus
addressed him.

Not a Nauseating Pill���The excipi-
ent of a pill is the substance which
enfolds the ingredients and makes up
the pill mass. That of Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills is so compounded as
to preserve their moisture, and they
can be carried into any latitude
without impairing their strength.
Many pills, in order to keep them
from' adhering, are rolled in powders, which prove nauseating to the
taste. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills are
so prepared that they are, agreeable
to the most delicate.
Many Color  Lines  in  Cuba
There are social distinctions in
Cuba based on color; there are not
one, but several color lines, though
these are not eternal, hard, fast and
unchangeable as in the United States.
Social life in Cuba is run largely by-
social clubs. There are in almost
every town and village negro clubs,
two or three grades of mulatto clubs,
and white clubs. In one and at its
functions may appear the husband,
excluding the wife; in another the
wife, but not the husband; in a third
the children, but neither the father
nor mother. To the world this will
appear incredible, almost incomprehensible; here it is "convention, fixed,
settled, accepted and operative.���
Army and Navy Life.
In Austria field labor is still largely-
done by the women, who also thresh
the grain with flails.

A Small Pill, But Powerful���They
