satisfaction of the corporation and citizens generally. He was an admirable
citizen and a zealous officer, and our

estimable wife. May good luck encompass him in all his undertakings.

of the Lardeau district, committed
suicide by drowning at Revelstoke last
week. He was previously certified insane, and at the time of the aad event
was supposed to be in the custody of
the authorities pending his removal to
the New Weatmins'er asylum. It is up
to the many friends of the popular old
fellow in Revelstoke and the Lardeau
to demand the reason why a patient who
has been certified insane and committed to the care of the authorities, should
be permitted to walk unattended on the
banks of the river.

A meeting of the Sandon Celebration
Committee was held in tlie City Hall on
Tuesday eveninglast, there being a good
attendance. The reports of all subcommittees were read and adopted, and
a hearty vote of thanks passed to all
who had sn generously contributed to
���o successful a day. The report of the
ball committee was indeed a favorable
one, they having netted $114 profit.
The balance sheet was also in a most
healthy condition, it showing a total
surplus of $170. This is most gratifying to tlie committees and all concerned. It waB agreed that a public meeting be called to decide upon the method
of disbursing the surplus, such meeting
to be held at thc City Hall on Friday
evening, Sept. 20th.

The secretary of the Spokane Fair is
communicating with the teams which

will he set apart for a great gathering
of old MlSsOUrlanS now residing in tho

The Nelson footballers have evidently
got cold feet, as no notice has been
taken of the challenge issued by Sandon
to meet them at Kaslo Fair. Challenges to meet Nelson have appeared in
tlie Kootenaian, Daily Net's and Review,
and besides being Bent through the mail
to the Nelson secretary. If Nelson are
looking for something easy, they must
not interest them-elves in this, as tlie
Sandon Bocker players are the " Champions of tlie Selkirks," and are skilful,

The Calg\ry Alberlan, Aug. 19th,
says: Tlie "Pair of Country Kids"

Calgary audience never laughed so
hearty or so long. There were pathetic
moments, of course, moments of sympathy, moments of consideration, but
fun anl frolic predominated. Tlie
" Country Kids " as tbo central figures
were excruciatingly funny, and tliey

Waking Up To Possibilities.
From a Correspondent.
At last tho people of New Denver are
aroused to the fact of their having a
wonderful aBfet which will bring fame
to the town and profit to the merchants
and business men. While all this talk
of the Kitchener glacier bas been going
on in the press, New Denver citizens
havo remained passive, in fact, showing
no disposition to advertise the magnificent glacier which overlooks tbe town.
Perhaps, Mr. Editor, the occasional
jolts you have given them in your paper
have homo fruit, but whether or no, a
party consisting of those, three rustlers,
Charlie Nelson, J. C. Harris, and W.
Thomlineon started to climb the glacier
on the 4th inst., reaching it on the Cth.

Strangers, Be Wary.
Chas. Marshall, representing Brener
Brothers, of London, Out., the largest
tobacco merchants with one exception
in the dominion, did good business
with our hotel men and merchants this
week. In connection with Mr. Marshall's visit to Sandon, that gentleman
related lo our representative a conversation he had with Sandon's prize
medal knocker. It is needless for us to
be unreservedly specific, as the knocker
in question is toj fond of law and too
well known to need formal introduction.
Suffice il to say he lias a lying tongue,
white bug whiskers nud a gamey toe.
We have reason to know that this per
son lias allottod to himself the position
of general bureaucrat, and in that capacity shoots off bis venom whenever a
Btrauger is inveigled into a conversation
with the bland old crank. To show the
nature of the damage which might
accrue from the " talk " of our subject
we mention that Mr. Marshall waa so
incensed at a man knocking his own
town that he gave us the following
" He introduced himself to me on the
street," said Mr. Marshall, and in doing
eo said:
" I see you are a stranger in this
town," to which I replied "Yes; how
did you know that ? "
" 'Aw," he replied, " I know you're
a stranger. What's your business
here ? " I thought that was a blunt and
impertinent question, but 1 satisfied
his curiosity.
"Then you won't do any business
here. I advise you to leave town without delay. All the stores are empty;
everybody in town is broke; families
are leaving town because the mine
owners insist upon tlie married men
living at tlie mines; tlie city is in a desperate condition���tliey had to get a
little girl to teach school, etc., etc. ; 'Aw,
there is no need Ior you lo wait till the
morning, there is a train leaving this
afternoon at 2."
I assured him that I would oertainly
try and do Bome business now that 1
was here, at which he appeared horrified, and then he vouchsafed this
" Then don't trust a soul; noboby in
town's got a cent."
He then went into the family history
and financial standing of every business
man in town, and needless to add you
were the first to come up for dissectiorf.
then your namesake, then all the rest.
I wondered what kind cf a town I had
struck, but I concluded that*it takes all
sorts of people to make a world and that
possibly my pessimistic mentor was one
of the loured variety."
Our scribe called upon Mr. Marshall
at the Reco the same evening, and Unit
gentleman wai all smiles. "It has
been a day of great surprises for me,"
he said. " Look jit my order book,"
and the Bcribe observed that the orders
booked for cigars alone were for over
$1,000. "I represent also," said Mr,
Marshall, "the well-known London
jewelry linn of Wray A Co., and I did
most gratifying business here fur them.
Tbat gentleman," be said, pointing to
tlie name of one of our prominent merchants, " paid me spot cash for the largest order booked since I left Victoria.
Tbat gentleman, according to our old
humbug of this morning, was linanrla ly
bust. It is too bad that such a venomous person Bhould bealloweti at large."
" Wbat would you suggest ? " naked
our representative,
" Oh, well the remedy must be found
by yourselves. Tar and feathers, possibly, if lie were younger."
Lest there bo any doubt ns lo tlie
identity of tbo subject of tbe above, we

The Wrong Spirit Prevaileth.
In no plnce in the world, perhaps,
among human habitations (God's gift to
man) do we find such a spirit of l'stlesi-
neas or apathy, such paseive inaction, a
sort of procrastinating spirit, as in
our own city. If anything has to be
done it is put off and off until tome
spirit witli ambition is either directly or
indirectly concerned and brirgs us to
our senses.
We residents as a whole live for ourselves. Eat, work, sleep, and no more.
We eat to live to cat, but not to i.ivk.
" Everyone for himself and the devil
lake the hindmost." There is no social
life to speak of because no one has ambition enough to start it up, And
Bhould such an individual appear his
ardor Trill be dampened In short order
by tho lack of Interest in those for
whose benefit he is working. Can a
more effectual wot blanket be imagined
or describetl ?
Not only docs this apply to the residents individually, but to their civic
authorities. To prove this we will cite
three instances.
1. When diphtheria broke out not so
long ago, the city found i'self without a
health officer because it tried to be
economical. The result ii it will coet
them as much, if not more, for this one
case. Is this economy ? We call it
apathy, " doti't-caredness," s> to speak.
The people should demand the appointment of a health officer each year.
Apathy on their pait may again result
in apathy on thc pait of the authorities.
Wo hope not.
2. If a "howl" had not been raised
there would be no school teacher in
Sandon; yet after obtaining one she is
put"in charge ot a building whicli any
health officer would condemn as unlit
for human habitation. It would have
been and is impossible for a grown up
man to clean tbe place with its broken
windows anddustof early days; and yet
a schoolboy is put in charge as janitor
and perforins bis work with echoolboy-
like regularity. Not until it got simply
unendurable did the trustees realize
tbat not a Bingle child went to school
frogi tbe hill that tho " barn " stands
on. All the town children were marched up twice a day and were prepared to
do the came throughout a dreary
winter. Ia this alertness when we
willingly condemn our own children to
five hours per day to unhygienic and
cold surroundings ? Talk about apathy!
It i_ criminal carelessness.
3. A woman ia discovered dead in her
hous". Thia makes the authorities realize that they have no coroner in the
neighborhood, and that with two legally qualified medical practitioners in the
cily. They have to send to Nelson for
one to come and declare " an inquest ia
unnecessary." And the extra expense
���perhaps the less said about it the
What is and can be the remedy for
this laxiitide, botli individual and collective ? Let us wake up and .hake
ourselves and look forward towards a
sunrise, not lie asleep and wake up late
and find the sun has risen. Lit us
catch old Father Time by the forelock,
or be will cilch us. Let ns lnok a little
ahead. Let ua prevent any further
mistakes occuiring and not simply
remedy tbem after they have occurred.
Lotus lake the adiie given to Leah
Kleshna: "Shako out your lungs and
breathe the air,"
All this is recommended in a con-
eillttory spirit as nn anlidote to prevalent apathy. Tbe limelight ol publicity has done wonders in the past, antl
it is therefore our only desire to accoin
plisli Bomo good, for the entire community. Ap.ilhy ever whispers:
" Sandon is all right ; let things slide."
Sensibility shouts: " Sand n will bo-
come just what you make it."

Billy Was Cheated.
McClurg was on bis way home from a
fishing trip at Bear Lake. He had a
fine string of trout so heavy that he
ibought he needed a counterweight to
balance them. Not having a can with
bim he had dropped in to the Exchango
hotel to put another weight in the
middle, where ho thought it would do
almost as much good.
" And ivery wan of us," be said, winding up his ilory of the day's fishing,
" wint away with fifteen fine trout on
hia etiing,"
" IIo-.v many fish did you catch in
all ? " some one asked.
"Sixty," said Billy; "there were
four of ns."
" Who wero they ? "
" Well, I was wan, and two of Ihe
TattrieB was two, and Dave Murphy was
three ��� Murphy, he wns three, and���
and���I'm sure there wero four of us!
out who the divil was the other
fellow ? "
Billy began again.
" Try it this way," lie said : " Murphy
was wan, and the two Tattrles was two.
and I was three, and���and I was three
���and, I'm blest if I cm thi.ik who was
the other wan."
Then Billy laid down hia string of fish
and began counting olf the members of
the fishing party on the fingers of his
disengaged hand.
" I waa wan," be slid, doubling up a
finger as he went along, " aud th s two
Tattriea was two, antl Murphy was
three ���and���er���"
"But the two Tattiies were three,"
some one broke in.
" Do yon know tbo two Tattiies ? "
asked Billy, warmly.
" No,"
"Well, then, how can you pay 'lit
two Tattiies was three? Go on, man;
you're drunk! "
Billy stood thinking it over for a minute and thou picked up his string of
"I'm tlommed," he snd, "if tha
crooks" didn't do me out cf���let's see,

In the fury of the fight he
remembered the risk and importance of not mentioning
her name and stopped short He was
fighting fast, but warily, for he realized that his present adversary was no
mean one. As the swords played back
and forth ln fierce thrusts and parries
he spoke assurlngly to Beverly: "Don't
be frightened! As soon as I finish with
this fellow we will go on! Ah! Bravo!
Well parried, my man! How the deuce
could such a swordsman as you become
a cutthroat of Marlanx?"
Beverly had been standing still all
this time, holding the light high above
ior head, according to her lover's orders, for she knew now that such he
was and that she loved him with all
ber heart She was a weird picture
standing there as she watched Baldos
fighting for their lives, her beautiful
face deathlike in its pallor. Not a cry
escaped her lips as the sword blades
���wished and clashed. Sbe could hear
the deep breathing of the combatants
In that tomb-like passage.
Suddenly she started and listened
keenly. From behind her, back there In
the darkness, hurried footsteps were
unmistakably approaching. What she
had heard, then, was not the scurrying
of a rat. Some one wns following them.
A terrible anguist seized her. Lowier
���nd nearer came tlie l^njj) k* ���-;_<���_ KQtu
Baldos!" she screamed In terror. "Another ls coming!"
"Have no fear, dear one!" he sung
out gayly. His voice was Infinitely
more cheerful than he felt, for he realized only too well the desperate situation. He was penned ln and forced to
meet an attack from front and rear.
He fell upon his assailant with redoubled fury, aiming to finish bim before
the newcomer could give aid.
From out of the gloom came a fiendish laugh. Instantly the dark figure of
a man appeared, his face completely
hidden by a broad slouch hat nud the
long cloak which enveloped him. A
sardonic voice hissed: "Trapped at Inst!
My lady and her lover thought to escape, did they!" The voice was unfamiliar, but the atmosphere seemed
charged with Marlanx. "Kill him,
Zem!" he shouted. "Don't let hlm escape you! I will take care of the little
witch, never fear!" He clutched at the
girl and tried to draw her to him.
"Marlanx! By all tbe gods!" cried
Baldos in despair. He hnd wounded bis
man several times, though not seriously. He dared not turn to Beverly's aid.
The scene wns thrilling, grewsouie.
Within this narrow, dimly lighted underground passage, with Its musty
walls sweating with dampness and
thick with the tangled meshes of the
spider's web, a brave girl and her lover
struggled and fought back to back.
To her dismay, Beverly saw the point
of a sword at her throat.
"Out of the way, girl!" the man in
the cloak snarled, furious nt her resistance. "You die ns well as your lover
unless you surrender. He cannot escape me."
"And If I refuse!" cried the girl, trying desperately to gain time.
"I will drive my blade through your
heart and tell the world it was the
deed of your lover."*'
Baldos groaned. His adversary, encouraged by the change ln the situation, pressed him sorely.
"Dou't you dare to touch me, Count
Marlanx. I know you!" she hissed. "I
know what you would do with me. It
ls not for Graustark that you seek his
The sword came nearer. The words
died ln her throut. She grew faint.
Terror paralyzed her. Suddenly her
heart gave a great thump of Joy. The
resourcefulness of tbe trapped was
surging- to her relief. The valor of
the south leaped Into life. Tho exhilaration of conflict beat down all her
fears. "Take awuy that sword, then,
please!" she cried, her voice trembling,
but not with terror now. It was exultation. "Will you promise to spare
his life? Will you swear to let him
go, If I"-
"No, no; neverl God forbid!" Implored Baldos.
"Ha, ha!" chuckled the man ln the
cloak. "Spare his life! Oh, yes, after
my master has reveled In your charms.
How do you like that, my handsome
goat hunter?"
"You Infernal scoundrel! I'll settle
you yet!" Baldos fairly fumed with
rage. Gathering himself together for
a final effort, he rushed madly on his
vapidly weakening antagonist.
"Baldos," she cried hopelessly and in
a tone of resignation, "I must do It!
It Is the only way!"
The man in the cloak as well as Baldos was deceived by the girl's cry. He
Immediately lowered his sword. The
lantern dropped from Beverly's hands
and clattered to the floor. At the same
instant she drew from her pocket her
revolver, which sho had placed there
before leaving tbe castle, and fired
point blank at him. The report sounded like a thunderclap ln their ears. It
was followed quickly by a sharp cry
and Imprecation from the lips of her
persecutor, wbo fell, striking his head
with a terrible force ou the stones.
Simultaneously there was a groan
aud tbe noise of a limp body slipping
to tbe ground, and Baldos, victor at
lust, turned In fear and trembling to
Hnd Beverly stiiuding unhurt staring
nt the black muss tit her feet.
"Thank God, you are safe!" Grasping
her hand he led ber out of tho darkness
Into the moonlight.
Not a word was spoken ns tliey ran
swiftly on until they reached a little
clump of trees not fur from one of the
gates. Hero Baldos gently released ber
hand. She was panting for breath, but
he realized she must not be allowed to
risk a moment's delay. She must pass
the sentry at once.       ,. _,   .    ���

eagerly asked.
"Watchword?" she repeated feebly.
"Yes, the countersign for tlie night.
It is Ganlook. Keep your face well
covered with your hood. Advance
boldly to the gates and give the word.
There will be no trouble. Tbe guard Is
used to pleasure seekers returning at
all hours of night."
"Ib he dead?" she nsked timorously,
returning to tbe scene of horror.
"Ouly wounded, I think, ns are the
other men, though they all deserve
He went with her ns close to the gate
as he thought safe. Taking ber hand
be kissed It fervently. "Goodby! It
won't be for long!" and disappeared.
Sbe stood still and lifeless, staring
after him, for ages, It seemed. He was
gone. Gone forever, no doubt. Her
eyes grew wilder and wilder with the
pity of It all. Frlde fled Incontinently.
She longed to call him back. Then it
occurred to her that he was hurrying
off to thnt other woman. No, he said
he would return. She must bo brave,
true to herself, whatever happened.
Sbe marched boldly up to tbo gate,
gave the countersign nnd passed
through, not heeding the curious
glances cast upon her by the sentry,
turned Into the castle, up the grand
staircase and fled to tbe princess' bedchamber.
Beverly, trembling and sobbing,
threw herself In the arms of the princess. Incoherently sbe related all tbat
had happened, then swooned.
After she bad been restored, tbe
promise of Yetive to protect her, whatever happened, comforted her somewhat.
"It must have been Marlanx," moaned Beverly.
"Who else could It have been?" replied the princess, who was visibly excited.
Summoning all her courage, Bhe went
on: "First, we must find out if he Is
badly hurt. We'll trust to luck. Cheer
up!" She touched a bell. There came
a knock at the door. A guard was
told to enter. "Kilos," she exclaimed,
"did you hear a abot fired a short time
"I thought I did, your highness, but
was not sure."
"Baldos, the guard, was escaping by
the secret passage," continued the princess, a wonderful Inspiration coming
to her rescue. "He passed through the
chapel. Miss Calhoun was there. Alone
and single banded she tried to prevent
him. It was her duty. He refused to
obey her command to stop, and she
followed him Into the tunnel and fired
nt him. I'm afraid you are too late
to capture him, but you may���ob, Beverly, how plucky you were to follow
him! Go quickly, Ellos! Search the
tunnel and report at once." As the
guard saluted with wonder, admiration
nnd unbelief he saw the two consplr-
ntors locked ln each other's arms.
Presently he returned and reported
that the guards could find no trace of
any one In the tunnel, but tbat they
found blood on the floor near tbe exit
and that the door was wide open.
The two girls looked at each other iu
amazement. They were dumfounded,
but a great relief was glowing In their
"Ellos," Inquired the princess, considerably less agitated, "does any one
else know of this?"
"No, your hlghuess; there was no one
on guard but Max, Baldos and myself."
"Well, for the present no one else
must know of his flight. Do you understand? Not n word to any one. I
myself will explain when the proper
time comes. You and Max have be^n
very careless, but I suppose you sbo'i'd
not be punished. He has tricked us all.
Send Max to me at once."
"Yes, your highness," sold Ellos, and
he went away with his head swimming. Max, the other guurd, received
like orders, and then the two young
women sank limply upou a divan.
"Oh, how clever you are, Yetive,"
came from the American girl. "But
what next?"
"We may expect to hear something
disagreeable from Count Marlanx, my
dear," murmured tlie perplexed but
confident princess, "but I think we
bnve the gunie In our own bands, as
you would say in America."

Interesting Facts as to Rattlesnakes
In Central British Columbia.
A correspondent from Kamloops,
.B. C. writes Some time ago I was
inuen suiprised at reading an article
Irom the pen of one of your readers,
who claimed that there were no rattlesnakes in British Columbia; very
probably he was correct as far as his
own observations were concerned, for
this is a province of magnificent distances; and many large areas are entirely free from tbem, but it is equally true that other districts���particularly parts of Yale���contain numbers
of them; and in this respect 1 can
endorse the letter of Mr. McDonald,
who wrote some time ngo from Nova
Scotia, in referring to which the editor stated ns his opinion that there
were no rattlesnakes north of Thompson River. This is a mistake, natural
enough in one not familiar with this
locality. These snakes may be found
anywhere along tlie north bank of the
Kamloops Lake (a river expansion
about 15 miles lone) and the Thompson River, from Kamloops to where
it joins the Eraser at Lytton���but they
nre particularly ncmerous in certain
favored localities, e.g., Rattlesnake
Bluff, between Kamloops and Trnnp-
ville, nnd nt Rattlesnake Moiintrrin,
about five miles up the Cariboo Road
from Asheroft. A few yenrs ngo a

****-��***. or,A Porr.uoine.
The following Indian story is intended for the tale of the white man
and the red. There were once two
men who lived a long way apart; one
was poor, and had nothing but his
hunting grounds; the other wns rich,
but be wanted the poor man's land.
The poor man's poohegan, or attendant spirit, was a snake; the rich
man's poohegan was a porcupine. The
porcupine went to visit the snake, but
at first the snake refused to let him
in, saying: "I will stick my arrow
into you." The porcupine said: "Then
I will stab you with uiy sword." Tlie
snake said: "My arrow has only one
barb; but it, is a good one." And lie
ran out bis tongue to show the barb.
The porcupine snid: "My tail is full
of swords; but I will guard tbem very
carefully if you will let nie come in,
for my home is fnr away." The snake
said*. "I am bore with my children,
and am very poor. It is not for the
riclt to come to the poor for help;
but rather for the poor mnn to visit
tli.* rich. If one of my children were
to go to your house, you would kill
him. Then why do you come here?"
However, tbe porcupine promised so
fairly that the snake at last let him
in. All went well at first; but in the
morning tlie porcupine begun to quarrel, killed the whole snake family,
and took possession of their land.

Where Cats Are Saluted
At the Government House in Poona,
India, every ent which mny hnppep

presents arms to pussy. Tradition relates that in 1838 Sir Robert Grant
governor of Bombay, died in the Government House. On the evening of
the day of liis death n cat was seen
to leave the house by the front door
and to wnlk up nnd down n partitrinr

in the habit of strolling after sunset
A Hindoo sentry observed this nud

the cat was Governor Grant's soul, and

sentry, it wns decided to present arms
to all the cats.

Dr. Chase's Ointment
Plan  For  Irish Trip Causes Anxious
Comment  In London.
Considering tlie state of unrest in
Ireland and the present ugly temper
of the peasantry, the announcement
of King Edward's intention to visit
Ireland next month has not only tak
en a greut many people by surprise
but bas given rise to mucli anxious
At the same time it is some months
now since this visit was projected,
and it is nearly two months since the
Earl oi Shaftsbury, speaking in Belfast, assured his hearers that His
Majesty would be in their midst during tlie course of the summer.
Loved  by  Irish Subjects.
There is not the slightest doubt
nbout the King's popularity among
the rank and file of the Irish people
Every where lie went during his last
tour in 1900 and 1904 he was received
with the wildest enthusiasm, and the
cheers that greeted him were as sincere as any thut ever came from the
most patriotic  Englishman.
There is one aspect of the King's
career that has always appealed to
the Irish people, and that is his sporting proclivities. In Ireland love of
the horse is one of the strongest
bonds of sympathy between mau and
man. The fact that for some yeara
King Edwanl has kept a few horses
in training at Curragh has strengthened him immensely in the affections
of the Irish people, who will never
forget that Ambush II. won the Grand
National in the royal colors after
having been bred and trained in Ireland.
May Have Special Race.
King Edward's horses in Ireland
are under the charge of a popular
amateur rider, G. W. Lushington. It
is possible thut the royal colors may
be seen at 11 special meeting at Leo
pnrdstown on July 11, arranged at
the request of His Majesty.
The enormous popularity of th��
King is one of the most difficult
things with which professional agitators in In.land have to contend, and
tliey have oinie to find that an attack
on the Government is a far bettei
card than personalities ubout the occupant of the throne.
Rubbing  It  In.
Thomas Beechnm, the famous pill
man, was u witty old gentleman. They
tell a story ubout him and u grocer.
The grocer wan guilty of some rather sharp practice on Mr. Beechnm
one day, und the latter stamped out
of the shop roaring:
"You're a swindler, and I'll nevei
enter your doors again,"
Next duy, though, h_ came bock
and bought five pounds of sugar.
"Dear me," said the grocer, smiling in a forgiving way, "I thought
you were nevei going to enter my
doors again."
"Well, 1 didn't mean to," said Mr.
Beecham; "but yours is the only shop
in the place where I can get what I
want. You see, I am going to pot
some  bulbs,  und   1  need  sand."
WhaTGolf Courses Cost.
To-day tbe great majority of golfer*
are new members, says a writer in
"P.T.O."���tbut is to say, they have
joined tlieir club some ye.irs after its
foundation, and of these tlie proportion who bear in mind that the initial expenses of a golf club are extremely heavy is anything but high.
The amount of capital invested in
new courses naturally varies. The new
club near Versailles, for instance, has
had ��34,000 spent on it; the latest in-
lnnd course, tlie Harewood Downs
Golf Club, laid down by Mr. Archibald Grove, M. P., on his own estate, has already entailed an expenditure of ��7,000; the hundsome clubhouse nnd pnvilion opened by the
Meyrich nnd Queen's Park Golf Clubs
at Bournemouth represents an investment of ��4,000, and the new Worthing links have had ��3,000 spent on
them up to date.
When left to itself, eczema runs on 1
indefinitely,  causing    keen    distress
from itching and covering the  body
with sores that refuse to heal.
Even with careful treatment, eczema is obstinate in yielding to curative measures, but tlie regular 11 n I
persistent use of Dr. Chase's Ointment is the most certain means of
overcoming this torturing disease.
Internal treatments for eczem.i
have long since been discarded, except the use of medicines to regulate
the bowels and enrich the blood,
while local applications are used to
relieve the itching and heal the sores.
It is the remarkable success of Dr.
Chase's Ointment in the c.ire of eczema which has given it world-wide
recognition as the standard ointment
for itching skin diseases
Mrs. Robert Clendenning, Welland
Station,  Out.,  writes:
"���For three years my daughter.
Funny, wus afflicted with eczema in
tin intense and persistent form, and
for nine days she was totally blind.
The burning, itching and disfigurement were horrible, her entire face
being completely raw ior months,

Trials  of the   Unemployed
Once there waa a young Boetian
who hnd money, says Puck. On*
day he looked at his clothes, of
which he had a great many, and he
saw that they needed to be brushed
and folded; so he told his servant
to do it for him. Then he went
downstairs, and noticed that his
manuscripts were in disorder; so lie
hired a man to sort them out and to
make a list of them. Next he went
to the stables and found one of his
horses sick; so he asked a man to
get him another one. The other
horse needed exercise, so he engaged
a groom to exercise the Ir se.
He looked at a puppy which he
had and said. "Why, it is time that
puppy was trained to find birds"; i.o
he sent the puppy away to a man to
be taught.
Then he went into the house and
yawned. "Dear me I" said he, "how
dull it is with nothing to do. I wish
I had something to do."
Tlie Boetians were barbarians.

"The opera managers' trust again't

of a communication from its Puns

with the advantages which the general public "not only in Europe but
in America and Australia" will derive from the movement, whicli had
to come because of "the demands of
the unreasonable, avaricious operatic
stars." Editorially speaking tlie
paper says; "It has always been th*.
custom of operatic managers to secure for their houses the best talent
procurable with the means at their
disposal, and we believe this system
will continue for all time. The desire to have the best will always
outweigh any trust consideration."

A Series of Articles Describing their Lives, their Aims
and their Influence.
62 Z
Editor and Proprietor of the Lacoinbe
To Sunny Alberta the lure of the
Golden West lias been steadily calling tlie homeseeker from distant
fields. Tliey have come from the
Mother Country, Continental Europe,
tlie Antipodes; and Eastern Canada
and tlie United Stutes hnve also contributed tlieir quota to the constant
stream of settlers who are rapidly
tilling up this Western province.
Thnt the population is decidedly cosmopolitan can be readily believed,
and those who have a personal knowledge of the general class of people
who are now of the West, will admit
that it has a generous share of the
brain and brawn that contributes to
the highest elements of Canadian
citizenship. In the building up of
this new province the large numbers
who have been attracted across the
border from the United States have
been a mpst important factor.
Adaptability*, geniuB and enterprise
are tlie accredited characteristics of
tlie average American, and lie has n
strong tendency to "make good" no
matter wbat may be his position in
life. Certain it is that not a few have
attained success in this new country
and huve become identified with
many of tlie leading industrial undertakings. It is not surprising,
then, to find that many Americans
have engaged in newspaper work,
and that they are publishing some
of the brightest of our provincial
weeklies. Among the number is Mr.
F. H. Schooley, editor and proprietor
of the Lacombe Advertiser, of whom
this article is particularly concerned.
Mr. Schooley was born on a farm
in Warren county,"Iowa, in 1866. In
1870 his father forsook the farm to
take up tlie practice of luw, and in
1872 entered the journalistic field
purchasing a half interest in a weekly
newspaper at the county sent. At a
very early age Mr. Schooley evinced
a great deal of interest in the printing art, and when he was but six
years of age it was his particular delight to stand on a high stoo' and
set type from reprint copy. At the
age of fifteen lie was offered and
promptly accepted a position as
"devil" in a country newspaper office, and afterwards completed his
apprenticeship in a job printing office
in Des Moines, Iowa. After working
some two years in Des Moines he
entered into partnership with his
father, and purchased a country
weekly, The Advocate-Tribune, at In-
dianola, Iowa. He was identified
with this paper until January, 1902.
In April of that yenr Mr. Schooley
moved to Alberta, where he took up
land with the intention of remaining
out of the printing business. In this
determination he had not reckoned
with the subtle fascination that the
printing office hns tor every true
member of the craft, and, as might
be expected, the desire to return to
his accustomed sphere of labor was
not to be resisted. Within an interval of one year he had acquired a
half interest in The Lacombe Advertiser, and in June, 1903, he took over
his partner's interest. Since that
time Mr. Schooley bus continued to
be editor nnd proprietor of Tlie Advertiser, nnd bus been eminently successful in producing a paper thut
has a distinctiveness of appearance
that commands more than passing
attention. The paper enjoys a liberal
advertising patronage, and lias an
ever-increasing circulation throughout
the wide territory it serves.

He balked nt taking a bus. "It

One evening, however, he returned radiant to dinner. Tenderly embracing
his life's partner, he murmured: "I've
done It, dulling! All the way for threepence!" Love and gratitude were In
her eyes us she said: "My brave boy!
I lid you mind It very much?" With affectionate clteerlness he made answer:

How Frost Affects Plants.
Plants do not freeze to death In winter, but perish from thirst. The process Is simple. The cold causes tbe
withdrawal of thc water from the cells
of the plant, forming Ice crystals outside of the cells. Tlie frost, cooling
and contracting the surface, acts as a
sort of pump, und ns soon as thc cell
Is emptied of Its life giving fluid tbe
plant dies. The truth of this theory
has been proved by numerous cnrcful
experiments, Great variation was
found In the amount of cold necessary
to cause tbe dentil of vegetation. Some
plants dry out quickly and are killed
before the freezing point Is reached.
Many plnnts will survive zero weather,
nnd some die only at 20 degrees below. Certain vegetable growths never
freeze. There are forms of bacteria
that even when Immersed in liquid nir,
the Intensest cold available, come out
of their bitter bath aa chipper and lively ns ever.
Precious Plant Stories.
Among the many strange things to be
found ln the Philippine Islands arc
the so called "plant stones" encountered now and tignln in eertuln vegetable
growths. The bamboo, for instance,
uecording to Kultur und Nutur, contains a scone very similar to the opal,
but on nccount of the rarity wltb which
it is found It Is much more costly than
the opal. In many thousand cane stalks
cut down and carefully examined there
mtiy perhaps be one ln which this beautiful greenish pink scintillating stone
bus been formed from the minute pttrti*
des of siliceous deposit thut Imparts
Its Intense hurdness to the outer covering of the cune. The bamboo cane
stone is known us tabasbirs. In the
interior of some cocoauuts �� stonelike
secretion Is found that Is not Inferior
In brilliancy to tlie most beautiful genuine pearl.
Wonderful Builders.
A personul inspection of the pyramids mnde by un English quarry owner led bim to the conclusion thnt the
old Egyptians were better builder,*
than those of the present day. He
found blocks of stone lu tbe pyramids
weighing three or four times ns much
as the obelisks on the bunks of the
Nile. He saw n stone the estimated
weight of which wns 800 tons. Many
of the stones were found to be thirty
loot in length nnd fitted so closely together tlnii the blade of a penknife
could be run over the surfnee without
discovering the break between them.
Tbere Is no mnchiucry, he claims, so
perfect thnt It will make two surfaces
thirty feet In length which will meet
together in unison as tbe stones in the
pyramids meet.
Sneaks   Un   For  Candy.
A noted Hurley street physician
bids fair to become the most popular
physician in London, especially
among the youth of both sexes and
omoiif* the dentists. Everybody should
eat at least a quarter of a pound of
Bweets  daily,  is  his  dictum. *
"Nothing," he says, "is more
strengthening than sugar. It is possible to work for hours after enting
four ounces of chocolate without feeling the slightest fatigue. If I had
my way every soldier in the British
Army should be allowed a quarter of
a pound of sweets very day. My practice is to take five or six lumps of
sugar in every cup of coffee or tea."
Asked ns to toothache, the physician replied: "I can only advise people to clean their teeth oftener."
Eggs of the Gnat.
The eggs of tlie gnat are arranged

escapes into the water beneath.
The Origin of a Great invention.
On one of the dnily trips of young
Westinghouse from. Schenectady to th*
foundry nt Troy his train was held nf
by a bud wreck. Two freights bad
come together iu a head-on collision on
n piece of straight track. The engineers bad seen the danger plainly, but
by the time tbe band brakes were
brought iuto play It was too late. The
young man allowed these facts to sink
luto his mind. Then he said to oue of
tbe train bunds:
"If the engineers had been able to
control their trains from the cabs, the
wreck could have beeu prevented,
couldn't It?"
"Control 'em how?"
"Hi'iike them."
"Yes. __ Tbey hnd lots of time."
Thf.r. was enough. The air brake wa*
conceived. Amid tbe piled up wreckage the thing that was to muke the
name of Westinghouse familiar to er-
ery schoolboy the world over wus culled Into being. It did not come in its
perfected form, but the Idea itself bud
germinated.���Paul Lutzke In Everybody's.
A Fight In the Air.
W. E. Webb, the author of "Buffalo
Land," tells this eat story:
The chicken hawk of the west Is ��
Ravage and dangerous enemy, but once
one of these air pirate's got worsted. I
wus sitting In front of the doctor's office when a liawk shot down with wonderful rapidity of wing���so fnst that
Its shadow seemed hardly to reuch the
earth before Its body. It pounced upon
the doctor's favorite kitten, which lay
asleep on the grass, and made of* with
It. At nn elevutlon of about fifty feet

wont to work for liberty. Its feline
mind was exercised to astonishment
nnd wrath. Twisting like a weasel,
its claws came uppermost, and to my

The Onion Dodge.
"Incredible as It may seem," snld the
detective, "there are many shoplifters
who steal by the agency of the onion.
These men, before setting out upon
their contemplated crimes, eat of raw
onions abundantly. Then they stroll
luto the silversmith's or the haberdasher's or the Jeweler's that they propose
to rob.
" 'Show me those large solitaires surrounded with pigeon blood rubies,
please,' says the Jewel thief.
"The clerk brings forth the tray of
gems nnd, bending over it, the thief
sighs with admiration. His face close
to the clerk's, he slgbs again. And the
clerk's nostrils quiver, and be turns
away his head. The inspection of the
diamonds continues for some minutes.
Throughout It the thief keeps breathing hard, the clerk keeps turning his
head away, and hence It Is no wonder,
nt the day's end, that a couple of costly
rings are missing."

Antiquity of Tea Smoking.
"With your ten clgurettes," said the
antiquary sternly, "you young ladles
think yourselves very modern nnd decadent.  But look here."
He took from a portfolio a French
print of the seventeenth century that
portrayed two men, with cumbrous
pipes, chnrging the same from a box
of China ten.
"This shows you,"* the old mnn said,
"the antiquity of tea smoking. It was
a common thing in France 200 years
ago. Blegnt mentions It and Grand
tl'Aussay In bis 'Hlstoire de In Vie
Prlvee des Fruneuis' describes It In detail. An old vice, a dead vice���for the
French found that tea smoking racked
the nerves���how very, very foolish you

Imitation of Ebony.
There are two processes, says the
Carriage Monthly, in use in tbe Imitation of ebony. Take a fine grained
piece of wood, use French black polish, made black with fine coloring matter, or good nlr drying blnck varnish
may be applied. This, however, gives
only a superficial coloring, and when
the edges wenr off the light colored
wood shows. The other method Is to
wash three or four times nny dense
wood with a boiling concoction of logwood, allowing It to dry between each
application. Then wash with a solution of ncetate of Iron, which is mnde
by dissolving Iron filings In vinegar.
This stain is very black nnd penetrates
Into the wood so that ordinary wear
and chipping will not show the original
Ants the Ideal Communists.
It would perhaps be pushing metaphors to an unwarranted extreme to
speak of "dignity of labor" ln connection with the occupations of ants. But
If by the phrase we mean tbat lubor
is the honorable lot of all Citizens, and
that all labors of whatever sort are
upon the same level of respectability,
then we might venture to apply the
saying eveu to the labors of an nnt
bill. For therein all are workers, from
the n��wlv fledged callow to the veteran

who earned his living by blacking
boots. Every Sunday he attended a
mission school. This school, through
its well-meaning teachers, decided to
have a Christmas tree. The gifts for
tlie pupils were provided for them
bv the teachers and Bome patrons of
the school.
Jimmy, the bootblack, was there
Christinas eve, but was much disappointed when his present proved to
be a copy of Browning's poems. He
folded it carefully in the paper in
which he received it and took it
The next Sunday the superintendent of the school announced that any
child who was disappointed with his
or her gift could exchange it.
Jimmy marched boldly to the front
with his.
"What have you there, Jimmy?"
"Browning, sir."
"And what do you want in exchange?"
"Blacking, sir."���Youth's Companion.

Pretty WAIT Paper.
When prettily sprigged and dainty
wall papers can be purchased for 10
cents a roll, there is not often nn excuse for ugly walls in a bedchamber.
If one selects first tbe wall paper and
carries the suggestion of Its color and
design Into the furnishings of the room,
one need not be at a loss to secure a
charming effect.
One room In which this cheap wall
paper was used was made us artistic
and attractive as many a more expensively furnished room. The wall paper
chosen had a light pastel blue ground
sprinkled over with short stemmed
daisies with yellow centers.
With infln-ite taste tbe furnisher used
this daisy for a keynote In ber furnishings. On the dressing table there
is a ruffled cover of white muslin. The
light blue, white enameled furniture
or maple might be used with just as
good effect

How to Rig Up One as Offered by a
Funny Man.
A worklngman's home is Incomplete
without an automobile. His children
cry for It. For this reason we give below a simple rule for constructing a
horseless rig at home. Already we
bnve received thousands of letters from
all o* er the world thanking us for this
clever arrangement Ever since publishing our easy method Tom Edison
hns boon nctlng sullenly, nnd Nikola
Tesln envies us. And. though perhaps
we might jeopardize the friendship of
these grent men, yet we will go on
publishing those scientific hints to the
poor and thus enlighten those who bnve
been groveling ubout In tbe dark so
long owing to the extortionate price
of gus. Here Is our wonderful scheme
laid bare:
Go to your family plumber and nsk
bim for it galvanized bathtub. Owing
to the stagnancy of business just at
present, be will willingly give you oue
free of cost Just to make room In his
overcrowded shop. Then take the
wheels from some one's wagon or private surrey and fasten them to the
tub. making sure thnt the nxles are
strong enough to hold a large family.
After this has been doue go to tbe
butcher nnd purchase four large bo-
lognns. 1'ut n hole In ench end, and
through one of the holes blow severely
until you hnve blown nil tlie meat out
of the hole at the other end. When
the skra Is entirely meatless, blow up
the skin with a bicycle pump and
fasten on to the tires of the wheels.
After this go down cellar and take
the works out of a gas meter and
fasten to the axles holding the wheels.
As a gas meter keeps on going around
whether you are burning gns or uot,
you will see at once that It will keep
right on going when attached to th**
axles, causing the axles to revolve and
thus making the vehicle go along automatically.
Put a few chairs In the tub and purchase a tin born at a novelty store.
Great care must be exercised ln oue
thing, however���be sure a piece of soap
has not been left ln tbe bathtub. This
might cause the chauffeur to slip up
and lose control of the machine. A
piece of llmburger cheese can be placed
lu the back to give it the odor of a real
motor car.
The above Information Is offered gratis, and we will gladly give more details upon receipt of letter asking for
same. Each letter, however, must be
accompanied by an advertisement contained in this issue and $7.-F. P. Fit

Bishop  As  Navvy.
Bristol has had the opportunity of
watching its Bishop engaged in the
novel role of a navvy.
Unable to secure sufficient monev
for the erection of the Fishponds
Parish Hall, the Bishop determined to
carry out the work by voluntary
labor. The parishioners gave a site,
an architect presented the plans, a
clerk of works offered his services
free, a lady came forward with ��150
in cash for the purchase of materials,
and a gang of workmen agreed to give
their services free in their Bpare time.
To show that he himself was no laggard in the good work, the Bishop
started the preliminary excavations
on the site. Spade in hand, he was
the first to commence the task of* cutting the trenches. Archdeacon Stewart,
Canon Alford, and Canon Weight supported him, armed with picks and
shovels, while a crowd of other clergy
energetically wheeled away the debris in barrows.
In spite of the heat and the difficulty of the work, the Bishop and his
colleagues labored strenuously, with
the perspiration streaming down their
faces. They are determined that their
hall shall  be  built by midsummer.

He was a little startled to see the woman behind the counter staring at him
from time to time through the glass
���door. When be got outside the shop a

"The Almi8hty Dollar."
A recent headline, "Bule of tbe Dollar," hns suggested the Inquiry, Who
originated the familiar phrase "the
almighty dollar?" It was Washington
Irving In "The Creole Village," which
be published in 1837. The phrase became so popular and excited so much
controversy ln consequence of a doubt
whether the adjective was irreverent
that its author had to explain eighteen
years later that he had Intended "no
irreverence, even to the dollar, which
he is well aware is becoming daily
more and more nn object of worship."
"Dollar" is certainly one of the world's
great words now, and it is difficult to
realize that It only meann "valleyer,"

the Joachlmsthal, In Bohemia, in whose
valley It was first coined ln the sixteenth century.���London Chronicle.
