Important Deal Which Will Be a Big-
Factor Towards Bringing In
Still Moro Capital.
The Kruo mine, practically tin first
uf the more prominent mines of Ains-
SWOl'tll to be located, bus been sold outright to Butte, Montana, parties, headed by Messrs. Lewis nnd Hand, extensive operators iu their section, says the
Nelson Daily News. The sale on a basis
of $100,000 was consummated on Monday, nnd the   property  thot  bus  lately
shown probably the most phenomenal
silver ore uncovered in British Columella, passes to a company of American
capitalists every way prepared to give
the mine all it is justified in receiving
in the way of development,
The. mini1 under the management of
the former owner, A. I>. Wheeler, with
a force of only live men, yielded a profit
of $8,1)00 during September, and sixty
tons of ore now oil route to lhe Hall
Mines  smelter    should   show   a   much
���higher profit for the few days of October
that work has been carried on.
Located by Mr, Wheeler in 1884, the
property was worked under tin* former
partnership of Wheeler, Glegorloh and
McClino for a period of several years, at
it time when transportation was the
burning question of the Kootenay.", and
the lirst silver-lead shipment ever made
from British Columbia to the United
Stales was made by the company from
(lie Kruo mine in ISStt, the ore being
packed ou the shoulders of moil three
miles 13 Kootenay Lake, and thence
taken to Bonner's Kerry by Dr. lien
dl'J'X's old Surp ise, the original tug or
launch of the lake. From there to
Helena was a difficult job, thirty-four
miles of a wagon road with a river to
cross which necessitated the building
o.r a Hat boot to ferry the ore across, and
an excessive freight rate to Montana,
made (although silver was $1.15 per oz.)
tlie result in dollars unsatisfactory; but
it was demonstrated that lot) ounce ore
could be obtained in the mine, anil this
shipment probably led to the investigation of Kootenay's resources.
Tho property was shortly afterwards
bonded to other parties and the shaft
in exploration was sunk to ils present
depth ot loll feet and 250 feet of drifts
opened, but the imposition of duty on
lead, entering lhe United States, and the
rapid fall in silver values during the
life of the bond, resulted in _the deal
falling through.
From 1891 up to the past year the
mine was uiiworked. About 1894 the
title became vested entirely in Mr,
Wheeler, who last year began quarrying
out the surface ore aud, aided by the
composition of the product being desirable for smelting, thus securing a low
treatment rate, he was able to operate
nl a profit. In August last he. installed
a boiler and pump and unwatered the
shaft and began underground mining.
Sixty tons were shipped from the. south
drift within twenty days, and then
while awsdting the return of sacks, prospecting was pushed off toward the foot-
wall from the north drift and a remarkable body of extremely high-grade ore
was entered at once. From this body a
splendid profit has been steadily main
tained, lhe last shot made in this body
prior to the transfer, produced the rich-1
est ore in appearance ever seen in the.
camp. !
This body has been drifted on about!
thirty feet, and not a day has passed
since work began therein that ruby
silver, argentite and massive native silver has not been in evidence. Mr. Wheeler having now, pr.ibubly, the. most'
varied Collection of excessively rich silver ores ever obtained from any mine.
The reputation of tho mine had been
generally known in Butte, and knowledge of the recent development having
reached there, Carl Hand, formerly
-manager of the Payne mine, at Sandon,
and who at present is operating mines
tear Butte, returned with associates,
mid for four days has been giving the
mine the benefit of as thorough an investigation as was possible, and tho result today appears in the purchase of
the claim at the highest price any
Kootenay Lake mine has as yet been
sold for."
The property was taken over on Saturday night, and W. E. Zwickey, of the
Kambler-Cariboo placed in charge as
consulting engineer.
The sale of this mine, means a rich
reward lo Mr. Wheeler for his " sticking lo the ship " through vicissitudes
and further means that American capital is again entering into this Held, and
also means that the development of this
mine is acting us an incentive to the
general advancement of Ainsworth.
A peculiar feature of this mine's his-
lory   is that,   under   the  old  option   of
1804, Scott McDonald, their first manager of the Payne mine, was iu charge.
This is followed by the financing of the
present deal through Carl Hand, a later
manager of the Payne, and the taking
over of the supervision of the mine now
by W. E. Zwicky, who succeeded Mr.
Hand as another manager of the Payne.
Notes from Whitewater.
(From Our Own I'orrcspoutlcnt.]
The Whitewater mine is showing up
better now than it has since Joe Katun
had the property. The mill cannot
keep up wilh the output of the mine at
the present time, and it looks as if they
will have to run twh shifts at the mill
to keep up with the miner. The mill is
turning out on the average 150 tons of
high-class lead concentrates and about
the same quantity of zinc concentrates
in a mouth.
Four men aro employed at the Deep
mine, and it is showing up remarkably
line. They are taking out on an average one car in ten days with values of
280 ozs. The last car shipped was very
high in silver and lead, about $5,000
being cleared on the car. Some very
rich specimens of wire silver are being
taken out.
Phil Corrigan has struck it good on
the Winona. The paystreak assayed
8,000 ozs. In silver. They have ore in
both tunnels and also on the surface
and have  10 tons sached.
Robert Williams was elected warden
at the election held on Saturday night
at the Minora' Union Hall at Sandon.
Messrs. Newcoine, Sweeney and associates are sacking some very good ore
now on their lease at Whitewater mine.
Our reporter thought ho was going
to be mobbed to death when he entered Mrs. Erickson's boarding-house last
Sunday. It turned out to be a warm
welcome, rather too warm, perhaps, but
appreciated, novorthless. There appears to be an unwritten be'ief that a
person associated with a newspaper, no
matter how distantly, is always in sore
need of a square meal Perhaps it ii so.

Three Forks has had many enquiries
about fruit lands since Purly Ward delivered his speech on the fruit possibilities of the Slocan, and in a few years
more we expect to sell Nelson all the
fruit she will need for exhibition purposes. LUMBEI1 JACK,
Mr. J.L. Retallack is bent upon establishing a precedent, and one which will
j have the effect of making him the most
popular mine manager In the Province.
The average miner in a high altitude
mining camp dreads the approach of
March 1st, 1007, for on that date the
new "Lord's Day Act" conies into
force, and from that on all unnecessary
Sunday labor will be a thing of the past.
To thousands of artizans, etc., this will
prove an undisguised blessing, and to
lhe uninitiated it may appear passing
strange that to a body of men plugging
away in an isolated mining camp, the
enforced rest will bring no joy. This is
an indisputable fact, neverthless, and
for the primary reason that for thirty
to forty men to be penned up in a close
ill-Ventilated bunk-house for twenty-
four hours in the depth of winter it
will prejudice both body and mental
health. With no attractions, recreation
rooms, wash or bath houses, the existing conditions may lie imagined, and it
certain that mine managers must proceed to make arrangements to obviate
this evil before the season is too far in
advance. Miners are a scarce quantity
in the Slocan now, and we are afraid
for the future of the high altitude mines
unless the managers grapple with the
This action of Manager Rctallack
will, therefore, commend itself. The
bunkhouses are to be thoroughly renovated ; new floors are being put down ;
the dining room will be comfortably
furnished ; the old board and straw
bunks will give place to springs and
mattresses: eleclric lights will Illumine
the rooms ; new modern heaters will be
put in ; bath-rooms and drying rooms
are being installed, and ill fact no pains
will be spared to make the men's quar*
as homelike as possible.
We congratulate tho management
upon their judicious step, and we are
positive it will be appreciated accordingly by the men and that better results will accrue.
The following is snipped from the
Stayner Sun:
Rutherford���Richardson. The home
of Mr. and Mrs. James Richardson,
Kerwood, was the scene of a quiet but
very pretty wedding on Wednesday,
September 12th, when their daughter,
Dora May, was united iu marriage to
Rev. Forlies J. Rutherford, B.A., of
Sandon, B.C., in the presence of only
the immediate relatives of the bride
and groom. Rev. Win. Conway, B.A.,
B.D., pastor of Kerwood Methodist
Church, officiated. The bride, who was
given away by her father, looked charming in an exquisite gown of white
eolienno with lace and chiffon trimmings, and carried a shower bouquet of
white roses. She was assisted bv her
sister, Miss Annie, attired in a lovely
dress of nile green mousse-line de soie,
and carrying while carnations. The
groom was supported by Rev. Wm.
Walden, 11.A., of Toronto Uuivorsity.
Promptly at four o'clock, to the strains
of Mendelsohn's wedding march played
by Mr. Conway, the bride entered the
tastefully decorated drawing room leaning on her father's arm. The wedding
party took up their positions in front of
a bank of ferns and palms under an
arch composed of baby clematis and
white asters. The color scheme in the
dining room, where the guests partook
of a dainty dejeuner, was also white and
green, the canopy above the table being formed of clematis and asters, while
the table was decorated with sniilax and
myrtle with a centre of white asters.
Many costly presents were received by
the young couple, among them being a
beautiful piano, the gift of the bride's
father. The bride's going away gown
was navy blue chiffon broadcloth with
white felt hut trimmed lo match the
suit. Amid showers of rice and good
wishes Mr. and Mrs. Rutherford left
on the evening train for Toronto and
points east, before going to their future
home in Sandon, B.C.

If leader of the opposlton Macdonald

such be the case and he is given undivided support, there might be some-

She was vainly endeavoring to pacify
her youngster, who was apparently
ubout two years old, The young cherub
had gormandized vast quantities of
fruit, nuts, etc., and seemed to be in
great misery and positively refused to
be comforted. Finally an old gentleman who was sitting beside the distressed mother, and whom wo took to
be the child's grandfather, remarked :
"Jenny; I'd larrup that kid."
" Oh, I hate to punish a child on a

We received a most interesting epistle
from ail outfit in Victoria last week. It
was ill the n ture of a " Letter to the

about three columns of this paper. It
was a long-winded glorification of the

That advertising pays, friend Towgood
always believed, but he now has doubts
about it. For a long time ho has been
paying considerable attention to raising
fruit 111 the grounds surrounding his
residence on Siinnyside ; the operations
being of a purely experimental nature.
Considering tho high altitude (8,000
feet), our amateur nurseryman had
cause to feel proud of his first crop.
Our little write-up a week ago, however,
set the small boys thinking, and the
luscious fruit proved too big a temptation to resist. On going to his orchard
one day this week he found nothing but
ruthless destruction. The young plum
and apple trees were stripped of their
fruit, boughs were broken off, and great
damage dune iu other ways. The parents of every boy in town should closely
cross-question them, unless certain suspicious symptoms have developed ere
this, and an application of the strap in
large doses might then prove salutary
and wholesome.
Now,     boys  ;      remember    George
Washington.    Speak up, and save the
wrong kid a licking.

Eastern Capital
for Silverton.
The tide has turned at Silverton. Six
months ago no one would have believed
that a revival in the mining industry
was taking place, but to-day that pretty
little lake side town is a hive of business.
Most of the mines are being worked,
and success has to be written in every
instance. Consequently there is a big
payroll behind the town, and the merchants aJe being rewarded for their
practical example of faith in the future
of the camp. But Silverton has resources other than mineral. For a
summer resort it would be hard to beat,
while there are thousands of acres of
valuable timber, principally .hemlock,
cedar, spruce, fir and white pine, along
the shores of picturesque Slocan lake.
The soil is most prolific for fruit culture
and those seeking land will be well rewarded by Htudying'the natural advantages in this district.
The good news comes that another of
our banner properties is to be. opened up,
which proves that the mines of the district are being keenly watched and that
capital is once more trending towards
the Silvery Slocan. A prominent citizen in conversation with Car! II. Hand,
of Bulb', the other day, learned Ihat a
company will be formed in the east this
fall to take over the old Galena Farm of
Silverton. There is a big body of concentrating ore, which will yield big
values in silver, lead and zinc. A concentrator would be erected the first
thing. Mr. Hand was at onetime manager for the Payne mine, and it was
through his favorable report that the
Krao mine was purchased this week by
Butte capitalists.
Advance, the Slocan !
Work on Sunshine.
The scribe visited the Sunshine on
Saturday last in company with W.
Bonnett, of the Filbert Hotel. About a
car of very high grade ore is sacked,
ami they are still boring in where the
big showing was discovered. They
drifted about !10 feet and have ore all
the way. On the footwall there is an
excellent showing, and an old tunnel
100 feet below will be continued for
about 40 feet, at which distance they
should get under the ore body. Three
men are at work. The property is most
favorably situated. Pack-horses can be
taken to the mouth of both tunnels, and
there is an excellent trail right to the
property. Splendid mining timber is
also to be had in abundance.
The property is being worked under
lease by Al. Holmquist and Tom Carley,
who are to be congratulated upon their
reward obtained in so short a time.
They were also packing some fine,
looking ore from the Corinth, an adjoining property. On the dump there
was a large quantiy of very good concentrating ore. It is the intention of
the lessees to instal a portable concen-
t.ator to treat these ores.

J. A. Whittier has struck a nice body

ore shoot has widened out to two feet
and a half. Present indications point
to tbe vein being even wider below. The
ore assays as high as 57 per cent zinc.

flinc Tariff Case
The third hearing of the classification of various kinds of imported Zini

ami Howell of board No. 2, and adjourned until November 15. The cuse went
over in order to give both sides an
opportunity to hear tho testimony
of Dr. Davis T. Day, in charge of tl; >
United States geological survey, who la
now In the west on government business.
At the time lhe case was called for
the second hearing, which was abou*.
the 1st of September, it was announced
that the testimony was all in and tha';
a decision would he rendered abou'J
three weeks later. It now seems thai;
some testimony which will have an important bearing on the case has not
been received, therefore the case wau
The chief witness Saturday was Prof'

technical character and turned principally on the point as to whether car

evidence and testimony as to commercial practices throughout the country,
as well us much technical testimony
from Prof. Wheeler.

department a ruling requiring the pay-

ores from Mexico and arc now supporting the government in the ruling, and
the domestic smelters, who contend thi
duty should be assessed at the rate ol
1 !.j cents per pound only on the lead
contents, which would make the duty
between 20 and HO cents per ton of zinc

mine operators of the .Missouri-Kansas
district about a year ago, and is being
contested by the smelling interests,
headed by the New Jersey Zinc Co.

The rain poured without ceasing
all night, and the greater part of the
next day. The graveled paths were
turned into torrents, the roads submerged, nothing was heard hut the
howling wind, the heating rain
against the windows, and the rustling leaves on  the   brunches    howed
beneath the gale. The beautiful, bright
Bummer   had     suddenly    turned    to
gloom  and   sadness.
ICdniee paced up and down the
drawing-room, dimly lighted by lie
narrow windows, chafing at being
forcibly confined within and deprived
of all the pleasures that made the
country endurable. For a while she
helped Aunt Relie to assort the delicate shades of silk, while chattering,
without awaiting the answers; then
alio took up a book that immediately
bored her, and finally welcomed the
announcement of breakfast with delight.
Marthe was still suffering, but had
made an effort to come down, and
allowed her sister to pet her and play
the nurse with as much earnestness
as she ever played at anything.
After breakfast, Aunt Relie Installed herself behind her frame at the
���window, as usual, while Marthe sank
Into a deep arm-chair, sad and silent.
The tranquility of her surroundings
became unendurable to Edmee. She
resumed her pacing up and down the
room, Impatiently watching the progress of the hours.
"I assure you this is nothing at all,
Edmee," observed Aunt Relie, teasing-
ly. "Wait till autumn and winter, when
you dare not. poke your nose out,
whei. the postman can scarcely reach
us, and provisions threaten to run
short; when we almost freeze to death
In this beautiful chateau "
"Don't calumniate our chateau,
Aunt," Interrupted Marthe, shaking
off the painful reverie into which Bhe
had fallen. "We can keep ourselves
very warm and comfortable, and we
have plenty of books, papers and
periodicals to amuse us during the
long evenings. Are you cold, Edmee?"
Edmee shivered under her pretty
white shawl and made an affirmative
sigh. Marthe Immediately touched the
bell, and soon a roaring fire blazed in
the enormous chimney, brightening
up the old room with its dancing
lights. Notwithstanding the hour, it
was quite dark, and Mme. Despois
abandoned her work to seat herself
near the fireplace, while Edmee, radiant and smiling once more, Installed
herself in a pile of cushions at her
sister's feet, and extended her hands
to the fire.
"This is comfortable, at least!" she
cried. "The cheerful fire inspires conversation. I love so to chatter and
you are both so silent and grave that
It gives me the blues!'
"Well, my little chatterbox," laughed Marthe, "we ask nothing better
than to listen to you; is it not so,
"Yes, on condition that she talks
nonsense; there is nothing so amusing as nonsense in others," retorted
Aunt Relio.
"Then you shall be served to perfection," rejoined Edmee, gaily.
"I must do you the justice to say
you are good-natured, at least; Edmee."
"This cheerful blaze makes me
amiable. I was getting cross, watching
the dismal rain. A grate fire always
makes me think of my childhood.
Mamma always loved to see a blaze
in the chimney, even in summer time;
and I can still see myself crouching
In a corner while she dressed. I
thought her so pretty, so very pretty."
Edmee seldom made any allusion to
her past, and Marthe had often felt
curious to learn something of the
childhood of this sister whom she had
not known until she had found her
blossoming into womanhood. She did
not like to question her, and contented herself with the few words that escaped Edmee, and gave her a glimpse
of a somewhat strange existence for
a child. "I am sure she could not be
us pretty as you, my darling," said
Marthe, toying with a curl of her Bister's golden hair.
"Oh! much prettier, with large,
childish, blue eyes: at thirty-five she
sllll played the Ingenue, and could do
it better than anybody, too. She had a
way of saying a simple little word,
without perceptibly raising her voice,
that brought the tears to everybody's
eyes. I adored mamma and she was
very fond of me when she had time;
but she often forgot me entirely."
"What, forgot you!���what do you
"Oh! she was not wicked, but she
had so many friends, and went out so
much, that she scarcely saw anything
of me, When she went out to dinner,
she often forgot to order dinner for
me; and as the servants were frequently changed, they cared little for
me. So I had to take care of myself,
and dined on crackers and preserves
when I could find (hem. One day papa
unexpectedly returned from a journey
and found me greedily devouring a
biscuit, perched on a cushion I had
placed on a chair. When I heard papa's
voice I was much frightened, and
would have tumbled to the floor if he
had not caught, me. I cried bitterly,
half from fright, half from hunger,
and it was only hy great effort that
he succeeded in soothing me. 'Run
for your hat, my little Edmee,' he
said consolingly, 'and we shall dine
together at the restaurant.' I was not
quite sure of what that, meant, hut I
did not hesitate. We had an excellent dinner and some wine that tickled my palate. I believe it was the
happiest evening of my life. Papa was
very amusing and affectionate, and
once I caught, him looking at me with
tears In his eyes. That, seemed strange
to me, and I said, reproachfully: 'Why,
papa, gentldmen never cry.' For the
firsi time he then spoke to me of my
sister, who would bo a mother to me
If ever I needed protection. After that
1 had a governess. ] did not like her
much, but she at least saw that I had
my dinner every day."
"All the same, It was a queer way
of bringing up a child," sniffled Aunt
"I am afraid I am giving you a false
Impression of my existence in telling
th-"*0 things," she continued. "For I
was much loved and petted by everybody, especially as I grew older. When
I was fifteen, one of mamma's cous-
\ii   who  wuh  v-a'v  fond  of  me.  took
me to tne Hieatfe one aay wunout
telling anybody. She played the comic
parts and made everybody laugh by
her funny grimaces and gestures. It
was very funny, but always the same
thing. She took me to the green room,
where many gentlemen came, who
said many witty things and were the
first to laugh at their own sallies. I
laughed too, although I did not always
understand. Then, one old gentleman
told me that when I made my debut
I should create a sensation In Paris.
'Leave that child alone,' said my cousin; 'she Is Miss Levasseur and will
never be an actress, for she Is to be
a rich heiress some day.' 'Then why
do your bring her here?' retorted the
gentleman. They all laughed at this
and paid no more attention to me.
But one of the gentleman was a friend
of my guardian, and the story came
to mamma's ears, and I was sent away
to school. Vou see that I was spoilt
and neglected In turn; a queer way
to bring up a child, as Mme. Despois
says. But It Is only since I came here
that I have known constant affection,
kindness and devotion. You may judge
how grateful I am, and how your little sister adores you, Marthe!"
"My dear little Edmee, you will
make me weep again."
"Ah! indeed no. That would bring
back that wretched headache again.
And I want to see you strong, well
and brave."
"Brave for both?" muttered Mme.
Despois, a little sarcastically, although
thinking to herself that this child
knew how to win all hearts to herself.
At this moment a servant announced that Monsieur le Cure wished to
see "Mademoiselle" for a moment.
"Show him in here," replied Marthe.
"I scarcely dare come in, Marthe,"
said the visitor, as he appeared on
the threshold; "I am covered with
mud, and wet from head to foot���
what! a fire in July���what a good
Idea on such a day."
"Come In, we shall warm and comfort you, Monsieur," observed Marthe.
"But how come Francolse to allow
you to come out on such a day? She
is usually so prudent."
"I came out In spite of her and in
spite of myself, too; for I might as
well confess my little weaknesses.
Duval's wife Is very 111, and I have
just come from there; and I said to
myself: 'My little Marthe will send
her some broth and wine.' "
"Come, Monsieur," said Mme. Despois, with a toss of her head, "make a
clear breast of it all. The thought of
a good roast and some warm wine
had something to do with your deviation to reach the chateau."
"Another of my weaknesses," he
confessed, with a laugh; "I am quite
a gourmand and Marthe is so skillful
In preparing hot wine. To tell the
truth, I am soaked through by this
beating rain and I am ashamed to see
my soutane smoking near the fire."
"And your shoulders are wet, too,"
cried Edmee, throwing her white
shawl over his shoulders.
"Mademoiselle Edmoc, he protested,
"I beg of you���your pretty shawl ���
and besides, it is hardly a priestly garment���although I must admit it Is
"Keep It on," pleaded Aunt Relie;
"it becomes you very well, and It Is
as light as venial sin."
"Humph!" ejaculated the priest;
"he who fears not. venial sin shall
easily fall Into mortal sin."
"Since we are on such grave subjects," resumed Mme. Despois, gaily,
"I should like to be enlightened on
one point. You are good enough to admire my embroidery.
"Indeed, Madame, you are a fairy.
That cushion you sent me for my
prie-Dieu is a marvel; only It Is too
beautiful, I hardly dare kneel on It."
"Well, Monsieur le Cure, I have a
friend���who is not very pious, I am
afraid���who takes old church vestments and ornaments, cuts out the
superb flowers and arabesques to applique them on satin or plush, and
surround them with fantastic stitches
���somewhat, similiar to mine. Is that
what you call a venial sin?"
"Sacrilegious! Madame, sacrilegious! As to deciding whether a thing
is a venial or a mortal sin, one must
first reflect. But where do you find
these old things you introduce Into
your magnificent portieries and draperies?"
"Oh! I hunt up the bric-a-brac shops
in Paris. They have magnificent brocades and stilts our grandmothers
wore at court balls."
"What a place Paris is!" exclaimed
the simple country priest; "one can
find anything there."
Marthe interrupted the conversation, entering with the hot wine she
had prepared with her own hands,
and which  Bleamori u.nu��ii*im*lv.
"Let me send "word to FrancolSe
that you dine with us," she said. "The
rain Is over, but the roads are frightful."
"My dear child, she would scold
with a vengeance. Tears have no effect on the vivacity of that excellent
woman; on the contrary; she has a
flow of words that I often envy when
I am delivering my Sunday sermon.
Bhe would reproach me of preferring
the fare here to the cabbage soup and
pudding Bhe announced we should
have for dinner. Besides, she Is very
Inquisitive and I have promised to tell
her all I should hear concerning the
assassination of that unfortunate
young man."
"What assassination?" cried the
three women together.
"What! you have not heard of It?"
"No, we have not."
"There! there! Early this morning,
the body of a young officer was found
In the forest near the turn of the path
that leads to the 'Fontaine de Vlr-
ginle.' PIIs name was Berton, or Bertrand, and he was killed by a pistol
shot. The murder evidently took place
yesterday afternoon, for the young
man left Trouvllle at about two
o'clock, and his horse was found later
and brought back there. But did you
know him?" exclaimed the priest, suddenly noticing the consternation his
words had produced.
"Yes," replied Marthe, In tremulous
tones. "He was a frequent visitor here,
and w��.s introduced by Robert d'Ancel."
"Oh, yes, Robert knew him. As soon
as the body was found, the authorities
called on him as a friend of the victim. He was out, but came In before
they left. Ho seemed greatly shocked,
and I understand he had an engagement with his friend to meet him at
Trouvllle to-day or to-morrow, but on
account of the storm had decided to
postpone It. He gave them the address
of the captain's brother, the only relation he knew of, and with whom the
young officer quarreled many years
Edmee had sunk back in a chair,
white and trembling, murmuring:
"And I who expected him and was
angry because he failed to keep his
"la anyone suspected?" asked Marthe.
"There are all sorts of rumors. The
inquest may throw some light on the
matter. The spot is a deserted one,
and the body remained where it had
fallen until this morning. The murderer had plenty of time to make his
escape, after rifling the victim's pockets of all his money; but he was
very careful to leave the watch and
,rlng, as they might compromise him.
He is far enough by this time, you
may be sure. To think such a thing
should happen iu our quiet neighborhood! It will give it a bad reputation,
and strangers will avoid it .But why
did he not take the main road? There,
at least, he would have run no danger
of being killed, and causing so much
uneasiness to peaceable people like
"The captain always professed the
greatest scorn for ordinary roads,"
said Marthe, "and always took the
shortest way. He was of a violent nature, and met u violent death. Poor
young fellow!"
"Alas!" sighed the good priest. "A
sudden death, without preparation, la
very sad. They say death must have
been Instantaneous. The wretch, whoever he was, aimed well."

Effect of Writing  on  the   Eyesight  of
Certain hyper-sensltlve parents have
uttered emphatic protests because the
education committee of the London
County Council has removed from Its
requisition list several series of upright writing copybooks.
They declare that this action will
endanger the eyesight of the children,
and they base the statement on a report that BO per cent, of the ailments
afflicting French children are caused
by the sloping system of writing.
But Prof. Malcolm McHardy, the
famous oculist, does not agree with this
opinion. The direction of Che writing la
of no Importance as long as there Is
plenty of contrast. The writing of a
slate pencil on a slate Is very dangerous. Black Ink on white paper ts good,
white Ink on black paper would be beat
of all.
"It must not be forgotten that the
chairman of the education committee
Is Sir William Collins, who Is an
oculist, and he would sanction nothing
which would In anyway be harmful to
the sight of the children.
"All teachers, should remember that
writing with fine pens Is a source of
danger. The thicker the stroke the
greater the contrast.
"Short sight Is not as harmless a
complaint as It Is popularly believed
to be. It is caused by the stretching
of the coats of young eyeballs so that
these tend to become more and more
lemon-shaped Instead of apple-shaped,
as In the normal eye, or orange-shaped,
as In the long-sighted eye Of tha earlier
man. Short sight is often the beginning of many of the most Irremediable
and blinding forms of eye degeneration.
"The cause of much of the short
sight of present-day children Is that
they are condemned to thread beads,
learn line stitching, fold paper, and
other kindergarten abominations.
"The unchanging range of vision and
want of contrast cause all the mischief."

So far did Sir Wilfrid Lawson carry
his teetotal opinions that guests at his
table were not allowed wine. Mr. Gladstone, who was accustomed always to
have a glass of port at the end of his
dinner, once dined at Sir Wilfrid's
house, and the champion of temperance
did not relax his strict rule even for
the great statesman. When Mr. Gladstone returned home he was asked by
Herbert Gladstone (so the story goes)
what he had had for dinner. He replied, "Water, Herbert; and very little
of that tool"���St. James' Gazetia.
Rare  Relio of the Old Sea Pathfinder
Treasured In United States.
Capt. Cook's chest, the one which
he carried with him on his voyage of
discovery over one hundred years ago,
occupies a conspicuous place In the
home of Rev. R. Crosby of this village, says a North Branch, Mich., despatch to The Detroit Free Press.
It Is presumed that this rare old
treasure Inclosed the chart of the St.
Lawrence River when, In 1759, Capt.
James Cook, with the ship Mercury,
commanded a squadron which perform -
ed the hazardous service of taking
soundings of that river under the guns
of the French forts.
The chest was probably with the famous navigator when he made his voyage of discovery In the Antarotlo regions. His observations, which were
published In London in 1777, were
doubtless preserved In this same old
After Capt. Cook discovered the
Sandwich Islands and was killed there
by natives In 1779, the chest, with other
property, was returned to the family of
the great navigator. Some time previous to 1800 William Cheetam, a gentleman and connoisseur of Southwell,
England, received it from tho Cook
family. At the death of Mr. Cheetam
In 1880 his widow gave It to her sister,
Mr. Crosby's grandmother. She died
twenty-five years ago, aged 88, leaving
it to her grandson.
When Mr. Crosby came to America
the family was unwilling that ths
vilued keepsake should leave England,
so It was left In his mother's care. Her
death having since occurred, It has
lust been shipped to America by a
dialer of Rev. Mr. Crosby.
The chest Is made of Spanish mahogany, beautifully and copiously bound
In hammered brass, the work evidently
��� I an expert. The mahogany Is one and
i half Inches thick, each side being a
�����inirle pleoe. Its top Is 42x28 Inches,
tnd lhe depth 26 inches.

Sanitary   Milk  Tim I   liny   lie  Vended
at   MiMli-rnlt-   Coat.
What Is to he done for the great
mass of people who cannot afford to
buy ccrtiUed milk delivered In glass
jars at an advance price? The following scheme has been suggested to mill;
producers by the health authorities of
one city:
Make the milking pail, shipping can
and delivery cau one vessel, holding
about Iif teen quints, with a small 5'j
Inch opening and a tight cover. Milk
through a sterilized cheesecloth strainer
directly into this can until it is full;
throw the strainers into a pall; put
on the cover and sink the can in lee
water. This can is shipped by rail, or
carried ou the peddler's wagon, uud
used for u delivery can.
This milking pail and cheesecloth
strainer must be sterilized by steam
or simply hy putting the pail containing some water and strainers on the
stove to boil for five minutes. A cooling tank should lie made so that It
overflows at a level just below the cover of the can.    This scheme ought to
materially lower the cost of clean milk.
For the house peddling we offer one or
two suggestions: The usual method of
using a quart dipper or a tightly closed
pail with a spout that can he corked;
then the peddler turns the pall upside
down to mix the milk, removes the
cork and pours out the required amount
Into the customer's glass or tin quart
measure, the cleanliness of which the
customer is responsible for.

Dr. William's Pink Pills Actually
Thousands of women suffer from
headaches, dizziness, langour and
nervousness. Few realize that their
misery all conies from the had state of
their hliiud. They take one thing for
their head, and another for their stomach, a third for their nerves. And yet
all the while it is simply their blood
that in the cause of all their trouble.
Dr. William's Pink Pills cure all tlitse
and other blood troubles because they
actually make new, rich, red blood,
Mrs. J. H. McArthur, St. Thomas, Ont.,
says: "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
done me a world of good. For about
eighteen months I was a constant sut-
fei'er. I was terribly run down and the
least exertion left me fagged out. I
slept badly at night, and this further
weakened me, and finally 1 had to give
un housekeeping and go boarding as I
was quite unable to do any housework.
I took dootor's medicine but it was of
little or ho benefit. One day a neighbor
told me how much benefit she had derived from Dr. Williams'Pink Pills and
advised nie to try them. 1 sent and got
three boxes, and hy the time 1 had
used them I could feel a change for
the better. Then 1 got four boxes more
and before they Were all gone my health
was fully restored. To see me now one
would not think H had ever been sick
for a day, and I can honestly say I
owe my renewed health to Dr. Williams
Pink  Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
greatest cure there is for the weakness and backaches and sideaches of

The Month of August.
There is no morth In the whole year
In which nature wears a more beautiful appearance than In the month if
August. Spring has many beauties,
and May is a fresh and blooming
month, but the charms of this time of
year are enhanced by their contrast
with the winter season. August has no
such advantage. It comes when we remember nothing but clear skies, green
fields, and sweet-smelling flowers
when the recollection of snow and Ice
and bleak winds has faded from our
minds as completely as they have disappeared from the earth���and yet what
a pleasant time it Is! Orchards and
cornfields ring with the hum of labor;
t'-ees bend beneath the thick clusters
of rich fruit, which bow their branches
to the ground; and the corn, piled In
graceful sheaves or waving in every
light breath that sweeps about It, as If
It wooed the sickle, tinges the landscape with a golden hue. A m&.low
softne-s appears to hang over the
whole earth; the Influence of the season seems to extend Itself to 'the very
wagon, whose slow motion across the
well-reaped field is perceptible only lo
the eye, but strikes with no harsh
sound upon the ear.���From tha "Pickwick  PaJaarfl-"

Sorplu- of Product* From Cows Ke*t
at the Owner'- Loss.
Dairy products are too abundant and
prices too low for the man with the
average cow. She is no longer an
economic factor. Everybody agreeR
that if a third or half of the cows could
be culled out there would be a good
profit with the remainder. Why? Because they produce enough to bring
down the cost of production to a profit
making limit. The great surplus of
cow products today comes from cows
that are kept at a loss owned by farmers who do not or will not exercise
their brains sufficiently to find out that
fact, atfirins Hoard's Dairyman.
The country needs, the farmers need,
a state of knowledge and affairs whereby we can produce just as much milk
products as we do today, for Instance,
with half the number of cows. The
true object of dairy breeding should
be to Induce the farmer to keep half
the number of cows and twice as good
ones. With such cows It would be difficult to carry the price of the product
so low that there would not be a good
profit in It. Right there lies the secret
of economic production and profit
For many years to come there will be
a wide open field right here for the
breeder of fine dairy cattle to supply
those farmers who want first class
cows, possibly to breed to a dual purpose sire to raise veals. Back of all
other considerations lies the necessity
to breed a kind of cow that can make
a profit for her owner even with low
prices for her products.
A Bad Practice.
A buttermaker from a neighboring
creamery was in the Dairyman office
the other day, and said to us: "I wish
you would say something that would
persuade my patrons from allowing
their night's milk to stand in a stable
all night." We expressed great surprise, and said it could not be that
there were many farmers In this enlightened day who would be guilty of
so dirty a practice as that. To our astonishment, he said that on Investigation he had found that more than half
of them were doing just that thing. We
inquired as to what kind of men his
patrons were. Did they read? Were
they intelligent men? We asked him
why they did It. His answer was, "Because they begrudged the labor of
taking It into the kitchen." It Is very
hard to get some patrons of a creamery
to see how responsible they are for
the good flavor and final price the butter Is to bring. If they could see it,
they would be different kind of men,
and handle their milk, cream and cowa
vastly different than they do.���Hoard's
Quantity and Butter Fat.
With reference to quantity It would
be correct to say that among the strictly dairy breeds Holsteins rank first,
Ayrshires second, Guernseys third and
Jerseys fourth. If there Is a difference
In the quantity of the production from
Guernseys It U caused by the large
relative size of the Guernseys. With
reference to butter fat in the milk Jerseys stand first���that Is to say If there
Is any difference In the richness of Jersey and Guernsey milk���Ayrshires
come third and Holsteins fourth. The
same differences obtain between the
high grades of the breeds of all these,
but not quite to the same extent-
American Agriculturist
"Growing the full ration"���I used to
dream of that. Now I say frankly I
don't know. With good corn silage,
alfalfa, mixed timothy and red clover,
early cut; cowpeas and soy bean and
crimson clover hays and cured corn for
grinding If needed, It would seem that
one should build a ration to the taste
of the dairy queens, but when It cornea
to a continued manger test and the
yield at the pail net' results have appeared to always show that the cows
would pay for some of the best mill
byproducts.���W. F. McSparran In Ohio
The Ever Ready Food.
We value the silo as a sourse of an
abundant supply of cheap, succulent
food for tbe winter months or seasons
of drought. Silage, If properly put up,
will keep for an indefinite time. We
have fed It four years old as "good as
new," remarks a correspondent in an
exchange. It Is worth while to have
it on hand ready to supply the need
at any time.
A Good Ration.
A good ration for a dairy cow of 800
pounds should be found In forty pounds
of corn silage, ten pounds of mixed
hay, three pounds of wheat bran, two
pounds of cornmeal and two pounds of
linseed meal, according to McSparran.
When the Cow Loofca Over the Fence.
Nearly every dairyman has experienced the shrinkage that comes in midsummer when the pastures dry up and
grass is scarce. It Is at this time that

what better way can a person realize
from $23 to $25 per acre for his green
corn or green alfalfa? When the cows
look over the fence with longing eyes
at the corn the efforts usually spent
keeping the cows out of the corn had
better be spent In throwing the corn
over to the cows. The green corn, alfalfa or cane growing alongside the
pasture will pay greater profits If marketed to cows In need of extra feed
than If held and sold to the local grain
dealer, and not only that, but it will
keep up the flow of milk and will Increase the profits derived from dairying on dry feed next fall and winter.

Cows giving forty pounds of 5 per

Plutocrat Master of England's High Social Circles and Begin* Now to
Dictate Terms Therein.
H. B. Marriott Watson, the English
author, writes: Plutocracy spells snobbery always. The class which has established itself on top always will receive deference from the class which
Is struggling up to gain admission to
those ranks. There Is no hope of admission to them without m >ney, and
hence plutocracy means snobbery. As
we are the most plutocratic nation 'n
Europe, we are also the most snobbish.
If one wished to be amiable one might
plead tha>t the snob Is by way of being
an Idealist. He reveres a social status
which he does not possess. In comparison with Otrtaln other fallings characteristic of other nations than ours
our national weakness may be considered venial.   Snobbishness Is not crime.
But, on the other hand, It Is one of
the most offensive properties to the
superficial eye of the observer of social life. "Tommy," said Byron of
Moore, "dearly loves a lord." Ypur sn'ib
denrly loves a lord. But that Is a detail In his character, for he has a perfect social code hy which he directs his
life.    Ho has been In existence so long
now that he has organised himself. He
has become almost respeotable by reason of his antiquity, And Ills opinions
and Ideals have obtained currency In
nil classes of the community, They
have tainted the once Independent anil
autocratic views otf the aristocracy.
However stupid the aristocracy might
be, It at least developed Its own Ideals
and hublts In former days. To-day It
lias accepted the traditions of lhe snub.
To the snob (und tin-nigh him to the
English social world generally) It Is essential to have gone to a public school.
One recalls Du MiiurlerS picture of Sir
Oorglus Midas regretting he hud not
had the advantages of Eton to the duke,
and his grace In turn regretting that
he had. The public school has been
taken over by the snob. In the famous
Victorian days there were pursuits definitely barred to "gentlemen," who
must either enter army or navy or become banister or pars in or doctor If In
want of a profession. But changing
times have changed all that, although
the snob sllll has his preferences. These
professions arc the "safest"; they convey respectability,
The snob remains with us with certain altered characteristics. Once he
aspired to reach an aristocracy which
was by no means founded on wealth,
and hLs aim was thus not wholly Ignoble. But the wealth of the middle
class has contaminated society, and the
old Ideals have been supplanted by the
now Ideal of money. Plutocracy reigns
.supreme and unashamed In London society, and the sn >b no longer merely
loves a lord; he loves a wealthy man.
If one Is to judge hy the papers, London society Is made up of Americans
and continentals. Occasionally English
names appear, but the cosmopolitan
element bulks largest In Importance.
The cosmopolitanism of society only
became possible by reason of the snob.
He pushes his way In, and the s iclal
circles which once would have been
shut against him open to receive him
warmly. The plutocrat is master of
the situation and is beginning to dictate terms.
It is he now (or she) who 'breeds Independent opinions and starts new fashions and generally Imposes his (or her)
will on society.
Couple Married  In  London  While  Living  on  Continent.
Inquiries by the Zurich police have
I brought io light an extraordinary slory
; of the alleged marriage in a London
I church of a couple who at the time
! were on  the Continent.
M. Blaiek and his wife, the latter of
| Austrian nationality, were recently arrested at Zurich as dangerous Anarchists. Investigations resulted In the
discovery that the couple had been
married by a remarkable method. They
sent papers relating to themselves to
a friend In London, who, It is stated,
took them to a clergyman, with the
result that the marriage ceremony was
celebrated, although the bride and
bridegroom were at Zurich. English
marriage laws have become notorious
In Switzerland, adds our correspondent,
and the term "married In England'' is
one of reproach.
It Is possible that an explanation of
our correspondent's message may be
found In the unscrupulous personation
by paid agents of the couple who desired a record of their English marriage. The marriage laws of many
Continental countries impose restrictions not known In Britain, such, fur
Instance, as considerable length of residence and the consent of parents.
Hero, with a residence of under a
month, It is quite possible to be married, and such marriage being confirmed by the foreign consul Is binding 'ii
the country from which tho visitors
come. Hundreds of couples visit England for the purpose of a speedy marriage.
It Is quite possible, therefore, that
an unscrupulous agent In London
might procure two persons representing themselves as the couple whose papers were in his possession to go
through the marriage ceremony. When
It was completed, the papers and evidence relating to the marriage might
bo forwarded to the real couple, who
have all the time been on the Continent.
1 Famous    British    Scientist    Eulogises
Their Virtue*.
A  discourse on  beneficent  microbes
was delivered by the famous scientist,
j Sir Michael  Foster, at  the opening of
the new bacteriological laboratory presented to tho Rothumstead experimental station by Mr. J. F. Mason, M. P.
Sir Michael thinks that bacterlologl-
' cat research may show that microbes,
| so far from being enemies of human-
'��� Ity, play an Important part In provld-
! Ing the nation's food.
t     He   declared   that   In   the   work   at
Rothamstcad   there  had   hitherto  been
a lack of any study of the part which
microbes play In the work of the soil
and tho plant.   We heard a good deal,
he said,  of  microbes  which  were  our
very good  friends,   and   some   of   the
best of them were those working silently and unseen In the soil.
The struggle for existence was
fundamentally a struggle for nitrogen,
and there were microbes in -the soli
which were making the nitrogen of
the  air eatable  by humanity.
"Thanks to Mr. Mason's gift," continued Sir Michael, "I hope that much
light will be thrown on the action of
microbes In producing our natural

Of experimental work In finding

The animals run about with loud
bells on their neck, and protected from
being fired on by wearing a saddle
with a large Geneva red cross. They
proceed in advance of the stretcher-
bearers, and on discovering a patient
sit down to "mark" or watch him till

by Major Richardson were extensively
used by the Russians In the war In

to be particulaily useful.

In the June Issue of The Strand, says
a correspondent to T. P. Weekly, there
is an article on "Artists' Models," particularly In reference to cases wliere
men have sat for women and vice versa. One of the Illustrations given ts
"Wllkle's Fiddler," and In the legend
underneath the picture we are told that
the old woman In it (no doubt referring to the fiddler's wife) was taken
from the actor's own head by means of
a mirror. Now, the head that was Uius
got by Wllkle Is that of the servant
girl, who Is leaning on the back of her
mistress' chair and grinning at the antics of young hopeful with the bellows
and the poker, who Is imitating the fiddler. An excellent likeness of Wilkie
It Is, He was rot what might 'be called
a pretty man, his face being the typical Scotch one, and that, as James Bos-
well said when first Introduced to Dr.
Johnson, was a thing which he could
not help; but to suppose that the coarso,
almost brutal-looking face of the fiddler's wife was drawn from his own Is
nothing short of a libel on the artist.
It Is told with reference to this very
figure In the picture that a lady friend
of the artist, visiting his studio while
the picture was In progress, remarked,
'���'Man, you've made the fiddler's wife
very ugly." "Well, madam," was the
artist's reply, "fiddlers' wives are not,
as a rule, up to a very high standard
of beauty." I might Just add that the
figure of the man cracking his fingers
to amuse the child in the same picture
Is said to have been drawn from Mac-

A correspondent of The Embro Courier Is out with a suggestion In regard
to placing the names of owners or occupants of farms where they may bo
seen by passers-by. He says; "Let
each municipal council empower tho
path master to reduce the number of
days by one day's work, to any who
put up their name In neat and plain
manner at the road, and It would soon
bo done. Anybody would sooner do
that than a day's work. Where they do
not have statute labor, each man might
be entitled to a rebate of, say, one dollar In taxes, after putting up his board,
the board In both cases to be maintained from year to year without any additional cost. What a lot of directing
and mistakes it would prevent, and
what Interest it would add to travel
to know where people lived."

Getting on a sand liar is a part of the
Yukon programme, aud we reached
this act early In the afternoon of the
first day. The river is constantly
changing, and a new channel Is made
each year. All steamers carry huge
poles, known as shears, or sometimes
called "ships' legs." When a sand bar
is struck tbe pole is dropped off the
side and stands upright In the sand.
A pulley is attached at the top, the
engine is started and the boat lifted
and swung forward six or eight feet.
This process is repeated until the vessel is clear of the bar. During the
jumping off process the passengers are
sent aft in order to lift the bow. When
somebody stupidly asked the captain
how long we were going to stay at
this point he answered, "Anywhere
from an hour to a week." We were
lucky in being fast for only two hours.

ten to eighteen Inches thick and spread
from shore to shore like a great field
of snow. We pushed on, while the
sharp lee pounded savagely against the
hull, which was built of inch and a half
planks. It scraped uud cut the sides
of the boat and buckled and formed
little ice mountains over the lake. We
ran slower and slower until, after cutting through five miles, the captain decided that we could go no farther In
safety, so the Casca tied up at an uninhabited island to wait until the sun
and wind should cause the ice to break.
The mosquitoes welcomed us and came
aboard by the thousand. Some of the
passengers rushed ashore and built a
huge fire out of old logs in order to
protect themselves from the pests; others climbed to the top of a h"l and sat
In a row like so many owls. All day
Sunday we waited. The crew carried
logs aboard aud built an Ice plow for
the boat. After twenty-four hours' delay we cast off aud went luto the Ice.
The river Is tortuous and muddy, and
In many places the current runs nine
miles au hour. Narrow gorges are entered, and at Five Fiuger rapids we
were treated to the sensation of running the rapids between rocks scarcely
twice the width of our boat apart. This
place is considered extremely dangerous, and boats coming up the river, In
order to avoid being dashed against
the rocks, pick up a cable fastened on
shore for that purpose and by winding
It around the capstan pull themselves
up the rapids���Mrs. C. It. Miller In

In crimson we robed her and white*,
Fine linen we bought her and gold;

We muffled her breast from the cold.

The dust of our emptier days;
We crept to her then In our pride,
And a mockery met our gaze.

With all the soft life she might live,

customer pull over an assortment of
colored hatbands until he struck one
that caught his fancy. "I'll take this
one," he said, handing It to the clerk.
"That's the New York Yacht club colors," remarked the clerk, as If that
settled the question. The customer
looked at him sharply and repeated his

which ran eighty-seven miles. Another machine of the same make and

Illuminating  Discourse on tha Proportions of Trus Character.
The necessity of both beauty and
strength In life, and the Imperfection ot
life when either of those qualities is
lacking, worn the Central thoughts of an
Interesting and Impressive sermon by
Itev. Prof, wilier, nf S:m Francisco, at
St. Andrew's Church, Toronto, on a recent Sunday. Thp thoughts of tho sermon were suggested by the building "f
tho pillars In Ihe porch of Solomon's
temple, as described In the seventh
chapter of first Kings, part of the
twenty-second verse, reading, "And upon the top of the pillars was lily work."
"In those pillars strength was topped
by beauty, and the useful ended In the
graceful,'1 said the speaker, "Those were
tho heroic days of labor; the course of
all our work to-day Is that we have
lost the Idea of Hod In It. The highest
conception of religion Is the getting of
It Into lowly things, and woik faithfully
done Is worship. In our day there Is
great desire for the Illy work without
the pillars; thousands of men would
like to have the virtues of their fathers,
but I hey have not their fathers' faith.
These are the days in which many
want tho beauty without the work of
putting In the solid foundation."
"The decay of principles to-day," continued Mr. Wilier, "is alarming to all
but the flippant. I wonder what wo
would do if we had lhe slave question
to settle to-day We sing, 'Onward,
Christian Soldiers,' but much of our
singing of that hymn Is a mockery.
This Is a generation which yields Itself
to trifles light as air. This age tolerates
religious life, but the religious man li
not supposed to give expression to his
Dealing with the other side of th*
subieof, that Is, that strength alone Is
not sufficient, the preacher pointed out
that nature shaped Itself to loveliness,
and that beauty was Inwrought In all
Us patterns. The world owed much to
the Purltars, but a higher type of man
was he who put his zeal Into force with
tenderness, gentleness and refinement.
S >me men were so conscientious that
they exhibited diabolical qualities, and
some business men conducted their
business so punctiliously that, In spite
of their honesty, nobody like them.
There were some such people whom we
wanted to "meet In heaven," but did
not want to meet very often on earth.
Lack of beauty In life was as much
a sin against Christ as was lack of
strength, said the preacher. Christ
combined strength and beauty, and It
was for the people dt to-day to follow
His example. History gave examples of
great men of the same age, some of
whom had showed great strength, and
the others strength combined with
beauty. Napoleon had been mighty with
his sword, and had convulsed a continent, but Scott had been mighty with
his pen and had found "sermons In
stones, books in thp running brooks, and
good in everything." In 1871 Napoleon's
monument had been hurled down, but In
the same year Scott's had been wreathed in flowers. Carlyle had had a powerful and profound Intellect, and had
been a good hater, but Ruskln had In-
zarnated in his life tho beauty of whloh
he wrote.

One of the most pleasing as well as
most touching evidences of the existence of the Christian spirit between
churches, and coming from a quarter
where, according to theological traditions, such things should be last looked
for, is reported from Sandon1,
The Methodist minister at Sandon
recently returned to his appointment
plus a bride, nnd a most enthusiastic
welcome was prepared by the people of
Snndon for the event. Among those
who took part in the welcome exercises
was a newspaper man, the enterprising
editor of the Slocan Mining Review.
The striking feature of the performance
is reported in the Review us follows:
"Rev. Father I). Jeaimotte then said
he was called upon to fulfil a most
pleasing duly, which consisted of presenting to (he bride and bridegroom a
small token of great regard from the
Catholics of Snndon. He trusted God
���would bless their union, and they would
enjov a long and prosperous life."
The only comment that appears necessary on such an occasion is that made
once before���some thousands of years
ago, we believe���when a man who must
have seen something like it said
" Behold how good and pleasant a thing
it is to see brethren dwelling together in
[Ed.���Yes, 'Brer Baor. It is these little
breaths of human kindness which
make the whole Christian church
akin. When propounded of tho
Scriptures forget minute controversial
points and follow the crumple of
Sandon's veritable Father O'l'lynu
and other ministers here, then will
the " Reunion of Christendom " be
one step nearer consummation.
