Big Fires at Nelson
The sub-station ol the West Kootenay
Power and Light Co., at Kelson, was
totally destroyed by fire last Saturday
On Monday morning at 3 o'clock, the
car barn and two cl oniric street cars ol
the Nelson Electric Cnnpany, leased to
lhe City of Nelson, also went up ill
smoke. Taken in the light of sensationalism, there ia tlio essential groundwork
for a dastardly plot to be unearthed, as
the lelatinns between lhe W. K. Co.
and ihe city are antagonistic. There
are etrong reasons to suppose
incendiarism was (lie cause of tlie outbreak at the cily ear barn, and anolhcr
very suspicious detail riveting tlie attention of lhe people of Nelson was the
draining of oil from the transformers
which was discovered three horns after
the outbreak. This trifling detail may
appear a very insignificant factor in the
Iiituro running of tlie street and private
electric service, tut bv reason of there
being no oil reserve, the city lias been
in darkness for several days this week,
excepting where coal oil, gas, and
candles have been obtainable. A
long string of peculiar coincidences has
marred the progress of the city towards
owning and operating their own electri.c
light system, and as Monday last was
the day when the lights were to be
switched on for the first lime, the concomitant series of disasters were, to say
tlie least, decidedly suspicious. An enquiry has been held, hut beyond proving
that the man who was responsible for
the construction and operation of the
plant was " buying cigars" at the time,
nothing very startling was divulged.
Situate at New Denver, B.C., the most beautiful place in
British Columbia, this modern and picturesque Hotel offers to
Tourist* and the traveling: public all the attractions and
creature comforts that heart of man deeirea. Facing the
glorious Slocan Lake, where boating and angling may be indulged in all the year round, an uninterrupted view of the

To the Editor.
Allow me, through the columns of
your invigorating paper to acknowledge
my warmest thanks���first to my brother
English colonists of "Alamo" for organizing the entertainment, and who at
expense and personal inconvenience eo
creditably contributed to the harmony
of the evening. Secondly, to the ladies
and gentlemen of this district for ao
readily giving and successfully taking
part, and thirdly, Ior the friendly actions
of ladies who volunteered assistance hy
providing for the practices aud supplying
refreshments, kv.
I gratefully accept all this kindness as
an expression of good-will and sympathy
wliich is most encouraging.
The satisfactory financial result of the
concert covers the amount advanced
towards expenses since the memorable
month of October last. I also appreciate
your generous contributions.
Yours hiihfully,

Sudden Death at Slocan.
Death came painfully sudden on Monday night to one of tlio oldest lady pioneers  of  1 lie Slocan.    .Mis. Haltie C.
Winner, nfter toiling steadily for twelve
yeara  in our silvery   land lias gone to
that  bourne Irom  which   no  traveller
returns.   She had complained of indisposition for a month, hut she preferred
to did in harness rather than  am render
to what she supposed was a passing cold.
Employed as cook at the Victoria Hotel,
Slocan Cily, she  prepared  the   evening
meal Ior the  guests,  and then quietly
retired to her room lo wrestle with grim
death which was even   then beckoning
her to  tlie Gieat  Unseen.   At eleven
o'clock the same night she passed peacefully away iu lhe presence ol a lew intimate Iriends, among whom were Mrs.
Newman, Mrs. Garrett, J. A. Anderson
aud A. Stewart.    Dr. E. E. Arthur, coroner, arrived  the  following   day   from
Nelson, but no inquest waa  necessary,
he certifying that heart failure  wiih the
immediate  cause   of   death   following
���yrtie interment took place on Wednesday aiternoon in tlie peaceful God's aero
adjoining the city, and a large cortege
of sorrowing friends accompanied the
mortal remains to their last resting
place. Rev. A. Keumure performed
the last sad rites of tlie church, aud Mr.
McLean, oi the New Denver undertaking
parlors, conducted the funeral arrangements.
Miss Winner was born in Stanton,
Michigan, and wan 56 years of age. In
her girlhood days she lived at Dayton,
Ohio, and later sojourned for some years
at Seattle. She came to Sandon in 1894,
and two years later went into the catering business at Slocan City, aud has
since that time been associated with the
Viotoria Hotel, owned by Alex. Stewart,
who purchased the hotel Irom the Sloan
Brothers at the time tlie deceased lady
arrived at Slocan City. She leavis
many fiiendu in thc Slocan to mourn
her loss. Her sister, Coar, of Kansas,
has been apprised by telegraph of the
sad event.

At a regular meeting of the T.I.S. on
Wednesday night, C. V. Nelson in the
chair, much useful Work was accomplished hy the society. A very pleasing
feature was the large number of replies
from Great Biitiiin to the article
from the pen of lhe secretary which
appeared last month in "T. P.'s Weekly." These communications were from
the very cream of British eel tiers, who
tiring of the drudgery ol an indoor life
in tlie old land, have been attracted by
the halo which now surrounds the magic
letters, B.C. All are men witli from
���.1,000 to $5,000 capital, who desire to
emigrate lo our land of many resources
and join Ihe army of prospective fruit
growers thnt is even now marching
towards Slocan to take po��eeesion of our
unrivalled bench lands. It is all highly
encouraging to the indefatigable members of the society, and we are confident
that much good will accrue from the
propaganda of advertising.
Minutes of the last meeting contained
a vote of thanks to all who had assisted
in the Cafe Chantant a few weeks ago
from which a handsome sum of money
was netted. Further routine business
consisted ol a discussion as to the merits
of an advertising envelope, which has
been submitted hy an eastern firm, and
the matter has been left to the judgment of the special committee. A letter wns read from W. A. Galliher, M.P.
in which he said he could do nothing in
the matter of the Government building
a new postoffice, for the reason that It
was unusual for the government to build
offices in small towns, and he pointed
out that he tried without avail to secure an appropriation for a new post-
office at Revelstoke, a city of great importance in the Kootenay.
It was decided to begin without delay
construction of the wharf at the loot of
the Glacier trail, the special committee
to have charge of the details.
Tlie secretary, (Herbert Cue) at the
conclusion of Ihe general business advocated tbe adoption of a colonization
scheme under the wing of the society.
He forcibly pointed out Ihat a large
influx of British emigrants was trending
to the Kootenays, but Slocan Lake
would not secure a proportionate share
unless special efforts were made lo attract tbem to the immediate district.
He therefore unfolded a comprehensive
plan in which the land owners of the
district should amalgamate and send a
capable man to Britain to lecture on
the fruit growing possibilities of the
Slocan. He had no doubt that a large
number of very desirable families could
by this means he placed on good land,
and the foundation of a great industry
laid. A very interesting discussion oc*
cupying an hour followed, and ultimately it was decided to go fully into the
project snd invite all lhe land-owners
to express their views on the matter.

Dominion Bhould commemorate the
founding of Canada by securing for
national possession the sacred ground
of the battlefield of the Plains of Abraham and St. Foye, where the destinies
of the New World were determined and
the foundation of the Empire and
Greater Britain was laid. Surely it is
fitting that we do not only this in honor
of our country's birth, but that we
follow still further and sweep from the
surface of this historic ground the
gaol and everything else, and from out
of the negleted fields of to-day evolve
a national park, worthy of the heroes
who there gave up their lives. Any
sum for this object, however small,
may be subscribed at the New Denver
branch of the Bank of Montreal.

Sunday School Convention
The convention of the Sunday Schi )ls
of the Slocan district was held on Tuesday April 21st in the Presbyterian church,
New Denver. A jubic meeting was
held on Monday evening. 'Ihe Re v.
W. M. Clialmers led the devotional
exercises and occupied the chair. The
Chairman introduced to the audience,
Stuart Muirhead, secretary ol the Eastern B.C. Sunday School Association who
outlined the purpose of the convention
and gave a detailed account of the
world-wide organization of Bumliiy
Schools. This was followed by a biiof
address given by the Rev. A. Kenmnre
of Slocan City.
Exercises at the lirst session on Tuesday afternoon were led by Rev. W. M.
Chalmers, after which the Rev. W.
Gifford was appointed to the chair. Tlie
chairman stated briefly the importance
of the convention, and called on Mr.
S. Muirhead to take the floor. The
early part of the session was devoted to
the discussion of tbe "round table leaflet" proposed by Mr. Muirhead. A
copy was given to nil present. Tlie
various details bearing on lesson construction and presentation methods ol
teaching, and illustrating, and other
interesting methods were di.cussed at
length and invaluable help was derived.
The able and convincing way in which
Mr. Muirhead replied to the many questions asked, was very gratifying to the
teachers, and proved to them clearly
tbe vast importance to the Christian
Church of Ih >rough methods of sound
organization and instruction among its
Sunday school scholars. The scholars
from the public school entered the
church at 8.30 p.m. and were shown by
Mr. Muirhead by means of the blackboard, the value of the supplemental
lessons. The attention of the scholars
was hell completely by the object lessons, which proved that the instruction in our Sunday schools can be made
intensely interesting by appropriate
object illustrations. The scholars then
left the church and the remainder of
the session was devoted to another discussion ou organization and the importance of leading the children into decision for Christ,
The evening session convened at 7.30.
The Rev. A. Kenmure, of Slocan City
led the devotional exercises and occupied the chair. A letter from the Rev.
Mr. F. A. Bartlett, af Silverton, was
then read by Rev. W. M. Chalmers.
The letter contained an expression of
hearty sympathy for the Christian
cause, and an expression of gratitude
and good cheer to the Slocan clergy in
tlieir difficult work, together with some
valuable suggestions for Sunday school
work and work among the mining camps.
The Secretary of the local association,
R. J. Dodds, was instructed to write a
note of appreciation to Mr. Bartlett for
his interesting and encouraging letter.
A very interesting address was then
given by Mr. Dodds, which was very
practical, and heartily appprccialed.
Mr. Dodds has done excellent work in
the Sunday school at Silverton, of
wliich he is the superintendent and
organizer, and we are glad to have the
office of Secy.-Treas. of the newly-
formed local association embodied in
such a worthy representative. The rest
ol the evening was devoted to the discussion of a masterly payer read by
Mr. Kennedy, of Silverton. It described
in well chosen diction, a statement ol
conditions wliich not only every clergyman or Sunday school worker but eve*y
man in the Slocau district ought to lay
seriously to heart. These conditions
are all too well known and need not be
mentioned here. They can be altered,
and men, you can alter them. We
wore very pleased indeed to have at
our convention a man known all over
B.C. The words wliich he utteired
were few, but full of meaning and made
a deep impression on all present. It
is men ol this kind that we would like
to have in the forefront lighting tlie
Lord's battles j and why should tbey
not? We thank vou, Percy, for your
encouraging words of cheer, which we
can never forget, nor fail to appreciate.
Towards tlie clo.ieof tbe convention the
question of bettor observance of the
Lord's day, Sunday closing, the furtherance of Christian works in tlie camps,
the strength of public sentiments on
general moral questions, wore discus-sod
and a resolution was unanimously
passed instructing the officers of the
executive committee lo consider immediately and initiate such steps as can
be taken to further these ends. The
convention on the whole was a decided
success, and we hope the first of many
future convention?, which will prove
a means of help to Christian workers
and a betterment of present conditions.
Fire Consumed the Building
In Less than An Hour.
Tlie famous New York Brewery at
Sandon is no more. Shortly after four
ocloek to-day (Thursday), llames were
seen it-suing [rom tho roof of the boiler
room by J. A. McKinnon and an alarm
was tin ned in.
The proprietors of tho brewery,
Messrs. Towgood & Bruder, discovered
the outbreak too late to be of effectual
sei vice and in an hour the brewery that ���
has produced malted beverages which
have earned Ior the indefatigable firm unstinting praise both far and near, was
burned to the ground.
Being outside the city limits there
were none of the city's hydrants to attach the hose to, but two small reels
owned by tho lirm were quickly in
action, eo fierce though was the blaze
that the small jets of water were insignificant, and of no service.
The renowned fire fighters of Sandon
were rushed to the spot in express
wagons, but although just in time to
assist in the work ot salvage their
effort to save tlie building was futile.
Some of the personal effects of the
members of the firm, and a small quantity of malt was saved, but it is estimated that the los3 is $15,000, of which
$7,500 is covered hy insurance.
We learn that the brewery was built
in '97 by Tattrie ...Brand when Sandon
was the busiest silver-lead camp in
Canada, Messrs. Towgood and Bruder
taking it over just after Sandon's disastrous fire of 1900.

17. Berries are graded for the season
as follows:���
'��� FANCY "-Which    shall    mean
berries sufficiently  solid that the
grower   will   guarantee   them to
reach Winni peg or equally distant,
market   in   first class   condition.
Tbey inustalso be absolutely clean
and free from sand.   Any in  thia
class reaching destination in bud
condition,   tbe grower  agrees to
accept all adjustments wiih party
to whom berries are Eold.
" B "���Sufficiently  solid   that   the
grower guaiantees them lo reach
Regina or equally distant market
in   first-class    condition.     Any
shipments not  arriving in first-
class condit-on the grower agrees
to accept all   adjustments   made
with party to whom fruit is Eold.
"LOCAL"���All berries   which will
not grade to either oi  the above
classes must not be  shipped, except to local points and must be
marked " Local."   The  place for
all others, the cannery.
18. Any package ot fruit  improperly
graded or unfit for shipment will  be returned to thc grower at bis own expense,
from point discovered.   All  employees
of the Association will be instructed  to
do this, and their positions will depend
upon the degree of efficiency in inspection
Therefore, do not try to dissuade them,
for tliey are  under instructions which
they must follow, and have no alternative.
19. The Assoeia'ion has decided to
adopt the following prices for picking
and packing berries this season:���
PICKING���1J-. cents per halletk or
enp, heaping full.
PACKING��� % cent per halleck or
cup, properly picked.
The Kootenay Fruit Qrowers Association.
I need ecarcely disclaim the authorship of the rules for picking and packing
strawberries which appeared by mistake
over my signature in last week's issue.
These rules are modelled on those by
which the Hood River growers havo
built up their great reputation andeare
worthy of our consideration.
One point of importance is that perishable fruit should be cooled off before
being packer! and shipped to a distance.
Another point on which there is much
discussion ia as to the necessity of
picking, then soiting ovur and then repacking; this Is the rule in Hood River,
and the advantages are great, though of
course it involves extra work. By eo
doing the over ripe and imperfect
berries aro sorted out and are either
sent to a factory or disposed ot locally,
A few soft berries wfll spoil a whole box
very quickly, and careful sorting insures
that the fruit is in perfect condition
when packed. Less trouble may also

Of the davs which followed, Maddy
had no distinct consciousness. She
onlv knew that other hnnds than hers
cared Ior the dend, that in the little
parlor a stiff, white figure Iny, that
neighboring women stole in, treading
on tiptoe, and speaking in hushed
voices ns they consulted, not her. but
Mrs. Nonh, who had come at once,
and cared for her nnil hers so kindly.
That she Iny nil dny in her own room,
where tbe summer breeze blew soltly
through the window, bringing tlie perfume of summer Mowers, the sound oi
a tolling bell, of grinding wheel, the
notes of a low, snd hymn, sung in
faltering tones nnd ol mnny feet moving from the door. Then friendly
faces looked in upon ber, asking bow
she  ielt,  nnd  whispering ominously
to each other ns she- answered!
"Very well; is grnndpa getting bet-
Then  Mrs.   Nonh  sat  with  her for
a time, fanning ber with a palm-leal
fan and brushing the Hies nwny. Then
Flora cnme up with a man whom
they called "Doctor," nnd who pave
her sundry little pills and powders
dissolved in wnter, niter which they
all went out and left ber there with
Jessie, who hnd been crying, and
whose soil, little hnnds Ielt so cool on
her hot head, and whose kisses on
her lips made the tenrs start, aird
brought a thought of Guy, making
her ask, "if he was nt the funeral.
"No" Jessie said; mother wanted
to write and tell him, but we don't
know where he  is."
And this was all Mnddy could recall of the days succeeding the night
of her last wntch at her grandfather's side, until one balmy August afternoon, when on the Honedale hills
there lay that smoky huze so like
the autumn time hurrying on apace,
and when through her open window
stole the fragrance of the later summer flowers. Then, as if waking from
an ordinary sleep, bhe woke suddenly to consciousness, nnd staring about
the room, wondered if it were as late
as the western sun would indicate,
and how she came to sleep so long.
For a while she lay thinking, and as
she thought, a snd scene came back
to her, a night when her hot hands
had been enfolded in those of the
dead, and that dead her grandfather.
Was it true, or was she laboring under some hallucination of the brain?
If true, was that white, placid face
still to be seen in the room below, or
had thev buried him from her sight?
She would know, and with a strange
kind of nervous strength she arose,
and throwing on the wrapper nnd
slippers which lay near, descended
the stairs, wondering to find hersell
so weak, and half shuddering at the
deep stillness, ol the house; stillness
broken only by the ticking of the
clock nnd the purring of the house
cat, which nt sight of Maddy arose
from its position nenr the door nnd
came forward, rubbing its sides
against her dress, and trying in various ways to evince its joy at seeing
one whose caresses it had missed so
long. The little bedroom off the kitchen where grnndpa slept and died
was vacant; the old-fashioned coat
was put away, as was every vestige
of the old mnn save the broad-rimmed
hat, which hung upon tbe wall just
where his hands hnd hung it, and
which looked so much like its owner
that with a gusli of tears Maddy sank
upon the bed, moaning to herself,
"Yes, grandpa is dead. I remember
now. But Uncle Joseph, where is
he? Can he, too, have died without
my knowledge?" and she looked
around in vain for tlie lunatic, not
a trace of whom was to be found. His
room was in perfect order, as was
everything about tlie house, showing
that Flora wus still the domestic
goddess, while Maddy also detected
various tilings which she recognized
as having come from Aikenside. Who
sent tbem? Did Guy, and had he
been there, too, while she was sick?
The thought brought a throb of joy
to Mnddy's heart, but it soon passed
away as she began ngnin to wonder
if Uncle Joseph, too, had died, and
where Flora was. It was not far to
the Honedale burying ground, Maddy
could see the headstones from where
she sat gleaming through the August sunlight; could discern her mother's, and knew that two fresh
mounds at least were wade beside it,
Hut were there three Was Uncle Joseph there? I3y stealing across the
meadow in the rear of the house the
distance lo the graveyard was shortened more than half, and could not
be more than the eighth pnrt of a
mile. She could wall: so far, she
knew. The fresh nir would do her
gonil, and hunting up ber long unused hat, the impatient girl started,
slopping once or twice to rest as a
dizzy Inintness came over her, and
then continuing on until the spot she
sought was reached. Three graves,
one old and sunken, one made when
the last winter's snow was on the
hills, tlie oilier fresh nnd new. Tbat
was all; Uncle Joseph was not there,
and vague, terror entered Muddy s
heart lest he had been taken back
to the asylum.
"I will get him out," she said; "1
will take care ol him. I should die
with nothing to do; and I promised
grandpa ���"
She could get no further, for the
rush of memories wliich cnme over
her, and seating herself upon the
ground close to the new grave, she
laid her face upon it, and sobbed
piteously: ���
"Oh, grandpa, I'm so lonely without you ull; I almost wish _ I was
lying here in the quiet yard."
Then n storm of tears ensued, after
which Maddv grew calm, and with her
head still bent down, did not hear
the rapid step approaching, the manly step coming down the grassy road,
coming past tlie marble tombstones,
on to where that wasted figure was
crouching upon the ground. There it
stopped, nnd in a half-whisper called, "Maddy!  Mnddy!"
Then, indeed, she started, and lifting up her head saw before her Guy
Remington. For a moment she regarded him intently, while he said
to her, oh, so kindly, so pityingly:
"Poor child, you have suffered so
much, and I never knew of it till a
few days ago."
Mj_*d_&y_ stretched her hands .toward
nim, moaning out:
"Oh, Guy, Guy, where have you
been, when I wanted you so much?'
Maddy did not know what she was
saving, or half comprehend the effect it had on Guy, who forgot everything save that she wanted him, had
missed him, had turned to bim in her
trouble, and it wns not in bis nature
to resist her appeal. With a spring
be was at her side, and lilting ber
in his arms seated himsell upon her
mother's grave; then straining her
tightly to his bosom, he kissed her
again and ngain. Hot burning, passionate kisses they were, which took
irom Muddy all the power of resistance, even had she wished it, which
she did not. Too weak to reason,
or see the harm, il harm there were,
in being loved by Guy. she abandoned herself for a brief interval to tlie
bliss of knowing thnt she was beloved   and of hearing him tell ber so.
"Darling Muddy," he suid, "I went
away because you Bent me, but now I
have come back, and nothing shall
part us again. You are mine; I claim
you here at your mother's grave. Precious Mnddy, I did not know of n,l
this till three days ago, when Agnes
letter found me almost at the Rocky
Mountains. I wisli I had come before, now that I know you wanted
me. Say that again, Muddy. Tell
me thut you missed me."
He was smoothing her hair now, as
her head still lay pillowed upon his
breast, so he could not see the spa.-.m
of pain which contorted her features
as he thus appealed to her. Half
bewildered, Maddy could not at first
make out whether it were a blissful
dream or a reality, her lying th.^re
in Guy's arms with his kisses on ner
forehead, lips, nnd cheeks, his words
of devotion in her enr, and the solt
summer sky smiling down upon her.
Alas, it was a dream from which she
was awakened by the thought of one
across the sea, whose place she had
usurped, and this it was which
brought the grieved expression to her
face   as  she  answered  mournfully:
"I did want you, Guy, when I forgot; but now���oh, Guy���Lucy Ather-
stone I"
With a gesture of impatience Guy
was about to answer, when something
in the heavy full of the little hand
from his shoulder alarmed him, and
lifting up tlie drooping heni. he saw-
that Mnddy hnd tainted. Then buck
neross the meadow Guy bore her to
the cottage, where Flora, lust returned from a neighbor's, whither she hnd
gone upon an errand, was looking foi
her in much  affright.
Up ngnin into her little chamber
Muddy wns carried and laid upon
the bed', wliich she never left until
the golden harvest sheaves were gathered in, nnd tlie hot September sun
was ripening tlie fruits of autumn.
But now she lind a new nurse, a
constant attendant, who during tin-
day seldom left ber except to talk
with nnd amuse I'ncle Joseph, mourning below because no one sung to
him or noticed him ns Mnddy used
to do. He had not been sent to the
asylum, ns Mnddy fenred, but by way
of relieving Flora hnd been taken
to Farmer Green's, where lie \va3 so
homesick nnd discontented that at
Guy's instigation he was suffered to
return to the cottage, crying like a
little child when the old lamilinr
spot was reuclied, kissing his iirm-
ehnir, the cook-store, the tongs, Mrs.
Noah, nnd Flora, nnd timidly offering to kiss the Lord Governor himself as he persisted in calling Guy,
who declined the honor, but listened
quietly to the crazy marl's promise
"not to spit the smallest kind of
spit on tlie floor, or anywhere, except in its proper plnce."
Guy had passed through several
stntes of mind during the interval in
which we have seen so little of him,
Furious at one time, and reckless
as to consequences, he hnd determined to break with Lucy nnd marry
Maddy, in spite of everybody; then,
i as a sense of honor came over him,
| be resolved to forget, Maddy, if possible, and marry Lucy at once. It
was in this inst mood, and while
roaming over tbe Western country,
i whither after his banishment lie had
I gone, that he wrote to Lucy a strange
kind of letter, saying he had waited
for her long enough, nnd, sick or well,
be should claim her the coining autumn. To this letter Lucy had responded quickly, sweetly reproving
Guy for his impatience, softly hinting
thnt latterly he had been quite a
culpable ns herself in the mntter of
defeniiiff their union und appointing
the bridal dny for the ��� of December. After this was settled Guy Ielt
better, though lbe old sore spot in
his heart, where Muddy Clyde had
been, was very sore still, and sometimes it required all bis powers ol
self-control to keep from writing to
Lucy nnd asking lo be released from
nn engagement so irksome ns liis bad
become. Neglecting to answer Agnes'
letters when he first left home, she
did not know where be was until n
short time before, when she wrote
apprising him of grandpa's denth
nnd Mnddy's severe illness. This
brought hiin, while Mnddy's involuntary outburst when she met him in
.tlie graveyard, changed the whole cur-
rent of his intentions. Let what
would come. Maddy Clyde should be
his wife, and ns such he watched
over her, nursing her buck to life,
and by his manner effectually silencing all remark, so that the neighbors
whispered among themselves whnt
Mnddy's prospects were, und, as wns
quite natural, were a little more attentive to the future ludy of Aikenside. P***-*- Muddy! it wus a terrible
trial which awaited her, but it must
be met, and so with prayers and
tears she fortified herself to meet it.
while Guy, the devoted lover, huitfi
over her, never guessing of nil that
was passing in her mind, or how,
when he was out of sight, the lips
he hud longed so much to kiss, but
never hnd since that dny in the graveyard, quivered with, anguish as they
nsked for strength to do right. Oh,
how Muddy did love the man she must
give up, and how often went up the
wailing cry, "Help me, Father, to do
my duty, und give me, too, a gre.it��*
inclination to do it than I now possess."
Maddy's heart did fail her sometimes and she might have yielded
to the temptation but for Lucy's let-

"Sometimes," she wrote. there

is no living being who will come between us to break my heart, and as
I know God doeth all things well, 1
trust Him wholly, and cease to
It was well the letter came when
it did, as it helped Maddy to meet the
hour she so much dreaded, and which
came at lust on nn afternoon when
Mrs. Nonh had gone to Aikenside, and
Flora had gone on nn errand to a
neighbor's, two miles away, thus leaving Guy free to tell the story, the
old, old story, yet always new to him
wbo tells it and her who listens-
story which, as Guy told it, sitting
by Mnddv's side, with her hnnds in
his, thrilled her thiough and through,
making tlie sweat drops start out
around her lips and underneath her
hair���story which made Guy himsell
pant nervously and tremble like a
leaf, so earnestly he told it; how long
he hud loved her, of tlie picture withheld, the jealousy he felt each time
the doctor named her, the selfish joy
he experienced when be henrd the
doctor wns refused; told of his growing dissatisfaction with his cngnge-
ment, his frequent resolves to break
it, his final decision, which that scene
in the graveyard had reversed, nnd
then asked if sbe would not be his���
not doubtfully, but confidently, eagerly, as il sure of her answer.
Alas Ior Guy! be could not believe
ho henrd aright when, turning her
hend away for :i moment while she
prayed for strength, Maddy's answer
cnme, "I cannot, Guy, I cannot I
acknowledge the love which has stolen
upon me, 1 know not how, but 1 cannot do this wrong to Lucy. Away
from me you will love her ngnin.
You must. Rend this, Guy, then suy
if you cun desert her."
She placed Lucy's letter in his
hand, and Guy read it with a heart
whicli ached to its very core. It was
cruel to deceive thnt gentle, trusting
girl writing so lovingly of him, but
to lose Maddy was to bis undisciplined nature more dreadful still, and
costing the letter aside he plended
again, this time with the energy of
despair, for he rend his fate in Maddy's fnce, and when her lips a second
time confirmed her first reply, while
she appenled to his sense ol honor,
of justice, of right, nnd told him he
could nnd must forget her, he knew
there wns no hope, nnd, man though
he was, bowed his head upon Maddy's
hands nnd wept stormily, mighty,
choking sobs, wliich shook his frnme,
and seemed to break up tlie very foun-
tnins of his life. Then to Maddy there
came n terrible temptation. Was it
right for two wbo loved us they did
to live their lives apart?���right in
her to force on Guy the fulfillment
of vows he could not literally keep?
As mental struggles nre always tlie
more severe, so Mnddy's took nil her
strength nway, nnd Ior mnny minutes
she Iny so white nnd still that Guy
roused himself to cure for her, thinking of nothing except to make her
It was n long time ere thnt interview ended, but when it did there
was on Mnddy's fnce a peaceful expression which only the sense of having done right nt the cost of n fearful sacrifice could give, while Guy's
bore traces of n grent and crushing
.orrow as lie went out from Maddy's
presence and fell thnt to hiin she was
lost   forever.     He   hud   promised   her
he would do right; hnd snid he would
marry Lucy, being to her whnt a
husband should be; had listened while
she talked of another world where
Ihey neither many nor are given in
.marriage, nnd where it would not be
sinful for them lo love encb other,
nnd ns she talked her face had shone
like tlie fnce of an angel. He lind
held one of her hnnds at pnrting,
bending low his bend, while she inid
the other on it ns she blessed bim,
letting her snowy fingers thread his
soft brown hair nnd linger caressingly among liis curly locks. Dut thnt
wns over now. Tbey had parted forever. She was lying where be left her,
eold, and white, nnd fnint with dizzy
pnin. He wns riding swiftly toward
Aikenside, his henrt bents keeping
time to the swift trend of his horse's
feet, and his mind a confused medley
of distracted thoughts, amid which
two facts stood out prominent and
clear���he hnd lost Mnddy Clyde, nnd
hnd promised her to marry Lucy Atherstone.
For many dnys after thnt Guy kept
his room, saying he wns sick, and
refusing to see anyone save Jessie and
Mrs, Nonh, the hitter of whom guessed in part what bud happened, nnd
imputing to him fnr more credit thnn
he deserved, petted nnd pitied and
cared for him until he grew weaiy
of it, nnd said to her savagely: "You
needn't think me so good, for I am
not. I wanted Muddy Clyde, and
told her so, but she refused me and
made me promise to marry Lucy; so
I'm going to do that very thing-
going to England in a few weeks, or
ns soon as Muddy is better, and before tlie sun of this year sets I shall
be a married mnn."
Alter this all Mrs. Noah's sympathy
was in favor of Maddy, tlie good lady
making more than one pilgrimage to
Honedale, where she expended nil
her arguments trying to innke Maddy
revoke her decision; but Mnddy was
firm in whnt she deemed right, and
as her health begun slowly to improve, and there was no longer an
excuse for Guy to lurry, he gave out
in the neighborhood that be wns at
last to be married, and stinted for
England the latter part of October,

Will Be Lessened By the Timely
Use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
How much money is wasted on useless medicines. How much time is
lost; how much pnin endured simply
because you do not lind tlie right
medicine to start with, Take the
earnest ndvice of thousands who
speak Iron) experience in fnvor of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills nnd you will
snve time, money, and nbove nil, will
find perfect health. Proof ol this iH
found in tlie statement of Mr. J. A.
Koberge, a well known resident of
Liichine, Que., who snys: "I am a
boatman, nnd consequently exposed
to all conditions of weather. This
exposure begun lo tell on my health.
The cold led to wenknss, loss of appetite, pains in the limbs und side.
I tried several medicines but tliey did
not help me. My condition was growing worse nnd n general breakdown
threatened. I slept poorly at night
and lost much in weight, nnd begun
to fear that I wns drifting into chronic invalidism. One day while rending u newspaper I was attracted by
the statement of a fellow sufferer who
hnd been cured through the use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I hnd spent
much money without getting relief,
and I hated to spend., pore, but
the cure was so convincing that I
decided to give tiiese pills a trial.
I am now more than thankful that I
did so. After the first couple of weeks
they began to help me, and in seven
weeks after I began the pills
I was as well as ever I hud been.
I am now convincd that hud I tried
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills nt the outset
I would not only hnve been spared
much suffering, but would huve saved
money ns well."

Saudy   Lures   by   Which   Salmon   ami
Trout Are Fooled.
No one except a fisherman or a fly
i;*esser bus the faintest conception ot
the enurmous variety of materials used
in the manufacture of flies, especially
salmon flies.
Trout tiles nre made to resemble various real Insects, but salmon tiles
have uo likeness to anything that inhabits earth, air or water, and to this
day no oue knows why the king of
fish Is fooi enough to snatch at the
gaudy lures which are cast across the
pools above his bend.
Tuke such a wet. known salmon fly
as the "silver doctor." The feathers of
live different birds are used to build It
���namely, those of the Indiuu crow,
the blue jay, the pheasant, the turkey
lind lbe pintail duck. Sliver wire, yellow tloss silk, sky blue backle and
scarlet woo! are also necessary for the
tying or this fly.
There is hardly any brilliantly plum-
aged bird kt'owu whose feathers are
uot In demand for fly tying. Jungle
fowl, blue chatterer, scarlet Ibis, bus-
turd, swim, mnenw, peacock, milliard,
Indian roller, teal, wood duck, grouse,
eugle nnd tlovicun are only a few ol
those whose feathers are stoweu away
In the drawers of any fishing tackle
Vou will ulso find gold und silver

list of birds ot brilliant plumage.
But even fvi the noble salmon there
are many other halts used besides tho
fly. The most deadly Is without doubt
salmon roe, the use of which ls prohibited in ulniost every part of the
civilized world. The "gardener's fancy"���In other words, the common lobworm���Is a first class salmon bait, and
so ls prawn boiled to a delicate pink
hue. On most good rivers these halts
are of course Illegal.
Some .relieve in anointing their baits
with various strong smelling oils or unguents. The above mentioned Richard Frunck did so. He advocates putting the worms into n lignum vitne box
which hns first been anointed with
"the chyiu'cul oil of bays, sulphur,
Burbados tur. Ivy or cornu cervi."
Poor worms! One wonders how long

Humorous Incident of Gladstone's Rivalry With  Disraeli.
An anecdote of Gladstone at the time
of his greatest rivulry witb Disraeli is
often retold. At a dinner party the
subject of Judaism cropped up.
"Admitted," snld Gladstone, "that
the Hebrews have given the world a
philosopher In Spinoza, musicians lu
Mendelssohn and Meyerbeer, a poet in
Heiue, the fact remains that tliey
have not produced a single statesman."
There was silence for a moment. Every one knew of course that tbis wus

a statesman and one of tbe greutest

Hebrew statesman?"

Many years ago a Norwegian was

hlm from enrnlng bis living. Sir Frederick Treves operated upon him nnd
completely cured him of his trouble.
Some weeks afterward the mnn called
upon Sir Frederick at his private house,

hlm with a coin. At first Sir Frederick
refused to tnke It, but the mau would
not he put off.

Everything that year (Queen Victoria's jubilee year) was dubbed ���'jubilee," from knights nnd babies to huts

The  Watchful   Rangers   and   the  Way
They Fight the Fltmes.
In almost any of the western mountains tbe traveler sees the lire warnings of the forest service, uud he Is
likely to meet some of the rangers.
You will find them crossing the high
Sierras lu California, In the Crazy,
mountains of Molilalia, mining the
Olympics In Washington or following
the old Apache trulls ulong the uiesus
In Arizona. Wherever lie ls. tbe rauger
keeps a keen lookout for the smoke of
forest fires, and In tbe clear western
atmosphere even u little smoke column
can be detected from ufnr. As soon us
be discovers It the ranger takes bis ax
aud shovel and goes ns only a western
horse nnd rider cun. Many small fires
are stopped by tbis watchfulness, but
there ure others wliich take many men
mauy hours to subdue. A fire In a
chaparral so thick that a man cun
hardly force his way through it aud
parched by six months of drought
makes bard nnd trying lighting. Then
there nre fires In tbe big timber among
the dead trees of old windfalls and
overhead fires that spread fttster tbun
a man can run. If unchecked, they
will burn for weeks over thousands of
acres of timber.
And all this destruction may be caused by a carelessly left cninpHre or a
match dropped from horseback. Tbe
sheep men used to set the forest on
fire purposely, for tbe year after a fire
the burned acres yield tine forage.
Happily this practice is discontinued.
Sparks from locomollves now set more
fires within the national forests than
any other cause. Camping parties are
tbe next worst offenders. Indians,
stockmen, miners and lumbermen who
travel continually In tbe forests very
seldom leave campfires to spread and
do damage. They know too well the
results. For a time almost every year
the citizens of Portland, Ore., lose sight
of some of tbe grent mountains around
tbe city on account of the smoke from

The wreck of the British barque
Dundonald, and the adventures of the
survivors of the crew on Disappointment Island, in the Antarctic, where
they lived for eight months beiore the
New Zealand exploring vessel Hine-
moa rescued them, form one of the
most tragic und romantic narratives
in the annals of the sea. The men
were rescued on Nov. 16 last, but the
full story has only now come from
New Zeuland.
��� The Dundonnld, with a crew ol
twenty-eight men, Ielt Sydney for Falmouth in February, 1907.
She was so long unspoken and unreported that her reinsurance rate
gradually rose to big figures at
Lloyd's. It was thought she had
met trouble off Cape Horn. At last
she was posted as missing, and the
Board of Trade were actually issuing
death certificates to the relntives of
the crew when a cnble from New
Zeuland briefly announced that fifteen survivors lind been picked up in
the Auckland Islands.
It appears the Dundonald met very
bad weather right from Sydney, and
soon after midnight on March 6 she
struck one of the Auckland Islands.
On  Disappointment  Island.
At daybreak it wns seen by a dozen
men who hnd sought safety in the
foretop that four others were ashore.
Tliey had landed via the jigger mnst.
A line was made fast between the cliff
nnd the foretopgallant yard, nnd tlie
men in tlie foretop landed also, hand
over band, Tiie captain and the rest
hnd vanished.
The Auckland Islands, it should be
explnined, form n little nrchipelngo
between New Zonlnnil and the ice-
wnll of the Antnretic. More forlorn
nnd barbarous places are not known
to snilors.
Once one island of the group wns
inhabited. Thnt wns during the time
of the Great Southern Whale Fishery.
But the fishery failed and the lonely
station was deserted in the earrv
fifties. Since then the pl'iee has been
unvisited except hy. castaways. The
smnller islands are but barren rocks.
The condition of the wretched men
of the Dundonald. cast ashore on one
of the lesser islands, wus dire. Tliey
hnd escaped with hardly any clothes;
the mnn who had a jacket wns lucky.
They could make no fire to dry themselves, for what matches they had
were wet. Thev were foodless, nnd
as the ship hnd gone down in deep
water nothing came ashore but a little
wood and some torn sails. Dig.:*.ig
holes in the pent with their hands,
they slept so, wet, cold, and hungry,
with rags of canvas over them.
The mute had cheered them wit',
the Information that there wns a p**o-
vision depot on the island for lhe use
of shipwrecked sailors. But search
failed to locate it. As a matter of
fact, there nre several provision
depots estnb'ished for castn-.vnys. and
severnl lifeboats, placed in the Aun'K-
lands! but they are on trie main island
And that is six miles from Disappointment. What the early dnys of tlie
exile were like is best shown from o
diary kent by Madlaughlin.
"We think we sball die if the winter is severe." (Tbey landed just before the Antipodean winter.) "Our
food still consists of young molly-
hawks nnd cold water. We shnll freeze
to death if we live in our canvas
camp during the winter. We are
talking about digging, a hole in1 the
ground, fiiiieh is very soft and damp.
So far we hav�� not found a bit Di
wood big enough to make a shovel."
But they found a piece of wreckage
at last with which tliey coulddig n
hole, nnd so made a "house" end
thatched it with grass.
Their First Fire.
Until a surprising discovery win
made of eleven wax vestas and half
a-box ol wet safety mutches tlie birds
were eaten raw. Afterwards they
were toasted on a stick, but were
always burned outside, and raw in,
and so most unpalatable, until a lew-
birds were accidentally left in some
smouldering turf. They were found to
be greatly improved in flavor. The
castaways discovered nlso that the
tuberous root of nn island plant was
pleasant to ent, and so grudully improved their dictnry. On another occasion one of tlie party found the
seals, which nbounded on the beach,
could be killed with a blow on the
In July���mid-winter there���they
made an heroic attempt to escape to
the chief island. They made a selection of the larger branches of a shrub
which grew on tlie island nnd slinped
them into a rough hemispherical
framework. It was tedious work, Ior
the wood wns hard and gnarled, and
the carpenter and sailmnker were
drowned at the wreck. Then, with a
needle made of n ninllyliawk's bone,
nnd a piece of wire, they sewed some
of their clothes nnd canvas bedding
tin the framework, Thnt bout actually
(tol safely over; but the provision
tlepot could not be found.

Superstitions That Move the Hardest
Gamblers have a reverance for odd
numbers, and none more so than the
habitues of Monte Carlo. On entering
the famous Casino you are given a
ticket at the cloak room for your hat
and stick. This ticket is stamped
with a number. Should the figures
on it be even, the old gambler returns it with a polite "Merci,
m'sieur!" and promptly walks out,
not to return that dny. If, however,
the number be odd, and under -36
the owner of it will probably hasten
to the room and stake heavily on the
corresponding number on the long
green cloth of the roulette table. The
strangest part of it nil is the fact that
the number invariably comes up!
��� Most brides long for fuir wenther
for tlieir wedding day becnuse of the
old snyjng; "Blest be the bride the
sun shines on." But the rainy-day
bride may console herself with the
fact that in some countries tlie bride
prays for rain, taking it for nn omen
that nil her tears are shed before
marriage, and that there will be none
nfter, The Germans say a new joy
comes with every raindrop.
There is also a universal belief that
it is very unlucky for a bride to seo
herself in a mirror after her toilet is
completed. If she so far forgets herself as to do tills and wishes to appease the fates, she mny do so by
turning nwny, drawing on her glove,
and hnving some tiny ribbon, flower
or jewel fastened to her gown.

A remarkable case of spirit manifestation was described by Mr. Orr,
president of the Manchester Spiritualistic Society, in an address to the
members of the London organization.
"A spirit manifested itself to me,
and gave its name," he said. "As a
means of further identification, it
told me to ask a mutual friend of an
incident which occurred at its funeral. This friend, a lady, stated that
in life the spirit, a gentleman well
known in Manchester, always gave
her flowers. At his funeral she exclaimed, half aloud: 'He will give
mo no more flowers now.'
"Then she heard a voice���a voice
she recognized us that of the dead
man, 'Yes���you shall have a flower.'
No sooner had the voice ceased when
a large white flower rolled off the
coflin-lid to hor feet."
An Appropriate Text.
A clergyman in a country tov/n was
asked to fill the pulpit for the pastor
of u church not fnr from his own. He
accepted the invitation. Before the
services begun he was handed several
notices which he wus asked io read
and wns told that they were usually
given out just before the sermon.
Among tliem was a long und elaborate
apology to the congregation for tlie absence of the clergyman who had been
expected to speak to them and whose
place this minister hnd been called
upon to fill on an emergency. It was
the last one, and he rend it without
comment or change of countenance.
Then opening the Bible he announced
his text, ���'Wherefore, then, be ye content with what ye have."

A  Revival  in the Swine  Industry
While the swine ra'sing industry
has been in some quarters resting on
its oars and in others showing positive retrogress:on, the Live Stock
Branch at Ottawa has been getting out
a revision o' bulletin No. 10, "Tho
Production of Bacon for the Britisli
Market." This booklet in its first
edition received such a call that u
very large edition became exhausted
beiore the demand wus satisfied. The
cnll for cop:es during the late summer and autumn months fell away to
some extent but the renewal of interest and hope in the bacon industry
is showing itself very strongly in a
request from many quarters of the
Dominion for more information upon
the question of swine raising. Fortunately the new edition is off the
press und rendy for distribution.
The bulletin n its revised form will
scarcely be recognized. In addition
to an almost complete new set of illustrations, which nro much better arranged than in the former issue,
much new mutter has been added.
Careful treatment has been given the
vital question of housing and in this
connection a number of plans of modern, approved piggeries are illustrated and described. The economical utilization of dairy by-products
���that marg'ii upon whicli profit in
tlie industry so much depends���is
treated ns new matter. The very strong
revival of the swine raising industry
which must of necessity follow the
sacrifice o�� breeding stock that took
plnce during the past autumn, has
already commenced to show itself.
It is safe to predict that with the return of spring with its pasturage and
renewal of supply of dairy by-products, together with the shortage of
market stock, a demand for swine
greater than has been for many years,
will be experienced. To furnish information that will be desired at
such a time Bulletin No. 10, revised
edition , hns been prepared. Copies
mny be secured free by making ap-
plicut'on to the Live Stock Commissioner,   Ottawa.

How  Phrases  Originate.
Some of the phrase, in common use
ItO-dny are hundreds of years old.
Take, for instance, "There's many
�� slip 'twixt cup and lip." This dutes
bnck to nn ancient king of Hie island
of Sniiios, in Hie Grecian Archipelago.
The king had planted a vineyard,
but one of his slnves, whom he hud
ill-treated; predicted that he would
not live to drink any of the wine
When the vintage came, Hie king,
with a cup of the wine in liis hand,
asked his menial whnt hnd become of
his prophecy. The other replied: "I
think there's niuny a slip 'twixt the
cap and lip."
At thut moment word wns brought
that a wild hour lind broken into the
vineyard, und was doing great damage.
The king hastily put down his untouched cup, seized his weapons, and
went out. But in the chase he was
killed, so the prophecy of the slave
wus fulfilled.
' 'Done to a turn" is said to have
originated from the martyrdom of St.
Lawrence. He was sentenced to be
roasted alive on a. gridiron. Tbe
story goes that during his torture lie
calmly requested the attendants to
turn him over, as he was thoroughly
roasted on one side.
Hence the phrase "Done to a turn."
