Nicholas McKian Dies From
^hock Brought On By
The news of the death of "Nick"
McKian came over the wire Tuesday at
a -hock barbed wilh pain and sorrow.
As far as we ran ntcortain, the facts
surrounding the lamentable accident
are as follows:
McKian, who was well-known in this
district, wan a blacksmith, and was employed in that capacity at the Argenta
mine, Argenta. It appears that on
Monday morning ho had just concluded making ready the fuse and caps
for No. 3 shift, and hoving about ten
inches of fuce left, lie stuck one end in
the Are, and held it in his hand while
it burned out. With ordinary care
there ia no danger in such a proceeding,
but in this instance a ease of dynamite
caps with open end up was lying near
at hand,'and some sparks hissing and
spitting from the fuse held by McKian
entered the case, and a loud explosion
followed. When picked up, McKian
was not thought to be fatally injured.
A cut below one of his eyes appeared
to be the extent of bis outward injuries,
hut his nervous system was completely
prostrated. It being boat day he was
j taken on board tbe Kokanee and conveyed to Kaslo, where he was admitted
into the hospital to the care of Dr. R.
R, Robinson. Dr. Hawkey also arrived
from Nelson to consult with the former,
but the patient was beyond human aid
when he arrived, iloalh being due to
a weak heart accelerated by the shock.
It also transpire! that deceased had
austained a cut in the groin and a bruise
over tho heart. Jim McKian, a brother
of deceased, also arrived from Nelson
with Dr. Hawker.
Nicholas McKian, our euhjeet, was
born in Perth, Out,, and was 37 years
of age and unmarried. lie was a prominent member of tho S.ui.bn Miners'
Union and the lo.*ai Aerie of Eagles.
Ho was one of the oldest timers in. the
camp and wa��, pet haps, tho most popular man in our city. Strictly abstemious always, and a gentleman cv��r, he
gained the lo��o of our small community.
To say that every body here was shocked to learn that this fine fellow was cut
down in the prime of life, is superfluous.
His death has brought the bitter cup of
sorrow to the lips of friends and relatives. His was a heart of gold. Ho
was one of nature's noblemen in its
truest sense���brave, generous, manly.
His was the soul of honor, and hi*
friend* and friendships were sacred to
bim. "Nick," as we all loved to call
bim, was a believer in the Fatherhood
of God and the Brotherhood of man.
He waa a man of excellent habits, fine
moral character, and apparently sturdy
constitution. In his chosen walk of
life be was a peer above his confreres.
He could command hie own salary, and
when earned ho knew how to take care
of it. Small need for him to toll,
however, as in disposing of some valuable mineral claims recently he secured
a competence for a man's allotted span
of Iif.*, but he was young, vigorous and
ambitious. Thus pisses out ef our
lives one whom we could not spare, and
once again over our sleepy city tbe
shadow of a grave has fallen; and as
Another has said, " it it wonderful how
long a shadow a little grave can throw."
" Fare thee well, oh thou to memory
Duet to dust,  and  lulled to slumbers
Sleep oo, forever, in tiie prison drear���
Hut   in   realms   on   high   shall   our
spirits meet."
Hi" funeral will take place at Kaslo,
to-morrow (Friday), under tho auspice*
of the Sandon Mirers' Union, Rev. Fr.
D. Jeannotte will conduct the service.
A special train will leave Sandon at
11.30 a.m., returning same day.
Phoenix Pioneer:���Some weeks ago
the Pioneer referred to tho British-
American Copper Mines and Smelter
Co., which has begun to advertise widely the sale of its stock. The B.C. Mining Record in its February issue, also
exposes this concern, but it continues to
send out its misleading advertising. At
onetime its ad appeared in the Manitoba Free press, and now it has been
observed in the Vancouver World. J.
C. Kernohan Co., of Cleveland, Ohio,
seems to be boosting the concern, with
Thomas Davie & Co., of Chicago as financial agent*.
Briefly put, the alleged company
states that it haa 640 acres of mineral
claims in Golden mining division of
East Kootenay, running 6 or 7 per cent
in copper. The advertisement ha* a
number of eo-called "Plain statements
of fact," and from this we have culled
a few, which can be called nothing else
but plain, simple, everyday lies, a* follows:
Lie No. 1.���" In the heart of the richest copper district in the world." There
is not a single mine shipping copper ore,
as far as can be learned, in the entire
Golden mining division.
Lie. No. 2.���"The Granby Co., a neighbor of oursis paying 24 percent yearly."
The Granby mines are aome 250 miles
distant, or three days travel as one
must go, and are paying dividends at
the rate of IS per cent per vear.
Lie No. 8.���"No physical difficulties."
Even when opened up, the prospects
are ten or more miles from water transportation and several hundred miles
from the nearest copper smelter, a* the
ore would have to go.
Lie No. 4.���"Begin shipping at once."
If the ore ia so rich and there is so
much of it, why not send it out by balloon or air ship, and all this advertising
to unload share* would be needless.
These are but a few of the statements
noted���there are dozens of others
equally reprehensible. The company
may have some likely copper prospec's
somewhere in the wilderness referred to,
which is as yet without railway transportation, and they may be worth developing, hut there ia little room in
British Columbia for such outfits. It
would appear that this is a good rase
for the post office authorities to investigate, and that without delay.
The public can judge for itself of the
cha-acter of a newspaper that will print
such absolutely false statements, even
though tbey be in the form of advertising at so much per. But then, the
Vancouver World has a'ready established a reputation for printing things
that have no foundation in f-ct. The
whole story reminds one of Mark
Twain's definition of a mine: "A mine
is a hole in the ground and the owner
thereof is a liar."
The Ledge:���At a meeting in Toronto
last week of the Canadian Mining Institute (7) the president, Mr. Smith,
M.P.P., of the Thetrord mines, Quebec,
said in his speech that he hoped the
time would soon come when Canada
would have some smelters of its own io
that ores could be treated at home instead of shipping them to the United
States. If Smith had time to slip into
tlie Boundary for a few minutes his ignorance would disappear. He could
have obtained the desired information
by reading the mining journals, but perhaps he would also need a geography
for so many of those so-called wise
people in the east will persist in thinking that Britisli Columbia is in the
United States. At Greenwood we are
just nine miles from the line, but that
ia far enough to entitle ua to the honor
and distinction of being in Canada.
Smith's ignorance is all the worse seeing that tlie largest smelter in the
Boundary is called after a town in his
own province. Better read The Ledge,
Smith, and allow wisdom to fertilize
the dead spots in your upper stop*.

(Continued from last week)
Tunnel No. 2 west passed in through
hard slate, which on Hearing the ore deposit is pyritiferous and the slate greenish, but on the tunnel horizon I was not
able to observe any of. tbe Assuring, the
ore having been completely stoped out,
one stope taken out below th* tunnel
and the place filled with water. I was
informed, however, that a winze was
nink about 70 feet and followed ore tor
the entire distance, but at the bottom
the ore was narrowing and following a
a distinct fissure. I believe the principal shipments from the Lucky Jim, dur-'
ing 1905, came from this chimney, which
roughly measures 65 feet in length by
35 feet greatest width, having tho shape
of a flat ellipse. The ore is very clean
zinc blende containing only a few stringers of iron pyrites, easily sorted ou t.
Some of the crystalline blende has a
resinous color and occurs in very
large crys-als. Very little hand sorting
is required, as the ore is singularly tree
bom waste or impurity, whole car-loads
running 54 p.c. zinc as broken*down in
the stope.
No. 2 tunnel west, on passing through
the slate limestone contact plane, broke
into solid zinc oro and1 followed along
the hat-set edge of a very rough jagged
slate, forming the northern boundary of
the limestone and the ore chimney,
which are practically coterminous,
while the face of the drift is in alate
which terminates the limestone in that
direction. The s'ate is of dark green
colour and pyritiferous. Here we find
the curious phenomena of a pure crystalline apparently interbedded with the
slate, suddenly and abrupt ly terminating
against a jagged slate wall, being as it
were cut off on its strike. This could be
more easily explained as due to faulting
but no hull fissure could be observed
along the northern boundary of the ore
deposit, while the limestone 2 inches
from the slate assayed 53 p.c. CaO with
no silica or magnesia present. On the
south side of the chimney the ore haa
been stoped back into the crystalline
limestono, while a drift passing almost
at right angles to the general strike of
the formation, shows the limestone zone
to be 60 feet thick at a point 70 feet
south of the center of the ore  chimney.
Tlie shipping ore on the tunnel horizon and above is stoped out, and the
workings in places are filled with concent i a ling ore, while the stope below
the level was full of water, hence no
thorough or satisfactory examination of
the oro chimney could bo made. However, it looks to mc as if the limestone
in winch this ore chimney ocenrs is a
sort of segregated doposit, or possibly a
cavity in the slates filled with pure
crystalline limestone. The limestone
enclosing the other large chimney in No.
2 tunnel east appears to conform to the
strike of the slate., at least adjacent to
the chimney. It is also crystalline and
a sample taken at the foot of the main
raise, south side, gave on analysis CaO
68.4p.c, 8i02 0,8p.c. MgO nil.
The Lucky Jim ore deposits occur in
a limestone zone in part interbedded
wiih the slates. This zone consists of
crystalline limestone of great purity,
calcareous slates and dark impure limestone bands which in some places follow
the strike of the elates and in other
places are of irregular form, more particularly the crystalline limestone in
which the two developed ore chimneys
occur. The ore deposits occur in association witli a system of vertical fissures
crossing the zone at about right angles
to its strike. The Assuring is best and
largest near the surface and does not
continue very strong in depth. Future
prospecting should therefore take the
form of developing the cross fissures at
a shallow or moderate depth in the limestone zone. Moreover the shallow deposits carry galena and very clean
blende, while in the deepest workings
a fine j,rained pyrites ;and pyrrhoti.e
occur in quantity, mixed with the blende,
and hence tlie deep ores will require a
concentration mill and magnetic separator to handle them effectively. The
Lucky Jim mino should produce large
quantities of concentrating ore as well
as the high grade zinc for which it is
famous. Further development along
the strike of the limestone will in tlie
fissured zones undoubtedly result in the
discovery of other deposits of high grade

IlOunding Down
Here is a clipping from the Lead and
Zinc News, which might prove of interest, more especially if the object stated
therein was turned to good account in
our own sphere.
" The recent action of the Joplin Club
in appointing a committee to investigate tlie proprictry of forming a Mine
Investigation Bureau is a very commendable one. Probably in no mining
district in the United States of importance equal to that of the Joplin District
is so small an amount of " wild-
catting " done, and to this fact may be
attributed the substantial growth of
mining in tho Missouri-Kansas district.
However, honest operators and the bus
incss men of the district do not look
upon that satisfactory condition and
content themselves with the thought
that conditions are better here than
elsewhere, but through their des're to
place mine operations iipjn a higher
plane���an ideal one���they are determined to w-ige an active warfare upon
those few remaining wild cat companies
who are advertising their spurious properties through tho medium of tlie
eastern press.* These glaring a lvertise-
menti rarely, if ever, emanate from
operators of good properties, and have
proven of such detiiment to the camp
that outside capitalists have denounced
tho district as the centre of mining
fraud. This is a grievously erroneous
impression, and to correct it, and to
wipe out the little fraud that remain;, is
the object of tho Joplin Club in consid-
ing the istablishment of a Mine Investigation Bureau and a mine clearing
house through means of which both the
honest promoter and the investor will
be protected from unscrupulous operators. The proposed Bureau, when fully
organized, will in many respects occupy
the position of a Mining Exchange, and
when the proposed legislation on mining frauds becomes a law���as it undoubtedly will���the Bureau will act in
conjunction with the pinto officials in
purging the district of all wanton

The recent demise of " Cody " George
McDonald recalls an incident in his life
which while it .edounded to his credit
in his official connection with a local
mining company, the aftermath is not
so pleasant to rclat.\
The company in question was the
" Noble Five," which owns the Noble
Five group of claims ahove Snndon, of
which the now Lieut.-ftovernor of the
Province was and is the virtual owner,
and of which in the oaily history of
the mine " Cody Qootge " wa- the superintendent." In iIii'bo days the claims
wero not crown granted, and to hold the
group the company had to fulfil a legal
proportion of work nnd such assessment
had to he duly recorded. The Noble
Five was then on a valuable shipping
basis, and the necessary aese.sment work
was done many timos over; but strange
to say, for one year the work done was
not recorded, and the valuable ground
was open for any man to st.ike r, ho had
a free miner's license. Juvt a little
piece of red tape, perhaps, but nevertheless necessary, and not under these
or any similar c'rcumstancrs would an
appeal by the company havo been upheld. The new locator could have
ordered the cmipany off his ground bag
and baggage. Such a circumstance would
have been followed by the inevitable
winding up tho company and the bankruptcy of not a few. The existing conditions came to thu kn iwledgo of sup
erintendent "Cody George," who hnd
thus in his hands the material for cor-
rating a fortune. It would have been
the simplest thing in the world for him
to have struck the town trail and arranged wiih a confederate to n stake the
group in his own or the latter's name.
Such an action would not have made
him a legal criminal, although iu the
eves of those who have a regard for sn
unwritten code of western honor he
would have heen one morally.
Playing lhe part of a faithful servant
and a man of integrity lie ic-sttlctd tho
valuable group of claim* and recorded
them in the name of the conjimny,, and
thus ended nn incident which waa worthy
and characteristic of the honest f-How
who hns just passed away, end one
when it, afterwards leaked out h:s many
friends trusted to see him rewarded for
for the part he had played in it.
Tho axiom that "a mnn never snrfefts
of too much honesty " in this sequel
went all awry. But a short time elapsed
ere be was " fired," and those who were
his confidants aver that he was igno-
minionsly " fired " for the very state of
things which existed p.ior to his re
staking the ground for the company.
The latter thought fit ti presume several things, one ot which, perhaps, was
that among the multitudinous duties of
a mine superintendent the important
work of recording assessments was one
of them, or was it that having gained
such knowledge and failing to personally profit by it lessened him in the regard of his employers. There are many
wlio think so.
" Cody George" left this camp an
honest, honored man, and when in after
years he became auditor for the famous
wc-tcrn cattle king, none knew his
worth moro than that same Pat Bur.is
and the crowd of friends lie had left
behind ia the woolly Sandon camp.

Baron Dangloss rode beside the coacb
until It passed through tbe southern
gates and Into the countryside. A
company of cavalrymen acted as escort. The bright red trousers and top
boots, wltb the deep blue Jackets, reminded Beverly more than ever ot the
operatic figures she had seen so often
at home. There was a fierce, dark cast
to the faces of these soldiers, however,
thut removed any suggestion of play.
Tbe girl was tn ecstasies. Everything
about ber appealed to tbe romantic
side of ber nature.   Everything seemed

so unreal and so like the story book.
The princess smiled lovingly upon tbe
throngs that lined the street. There
was no man among tbem who would
not have laid down bis life for the
gracious ruler.
"Oh, I love your soldiers," cried Beverly warmly.
"Poor fellows, wbo knows how soon
they may be called upon to face death
In tbe Dawsbergen hills?" said Yetive,
��� shadow crossing her face.
Dangloss was to remain In Ganlook
for several days, on guard against
manifestations by the Axphainlens. A
corps of spies and scouts was worklm*
with him, and couriers war** ready te
ride at a moment's notice to the castle
In Edelweiss. Before they parted Beverly extracted a renewal of bis promise
to take good care of Baldos. Sbe sent
a message to tbe Injured man, deploring tbe fact that she was compelled to
leave Ganlook without seeing bim as
sbe had promised. It was ber intention
to have bim come to Edelweiss as soon
as he was In condition to be removed.
Baron Dangloss smiled mysteriously,
but be bad no comment to make. He
had received his orders and was obeying tbem to the letter.
"I wonder if Grenfall has heard of
my harum-scarum trip to St. Petersburg," reflected Yetive, making herself
comfortable in the coach after the gates
nnd tbe multitudes were far behind.
"I'll go you a box of chocolate creams
thnt we meet him before we get to
Edelweiss," ventured Beverly.
"Agreed," said the princess.
"Don't say 'agreed,' dear. 'Done* Is
the word," corrected tbe American girl
Beverly won. Grenfall Lorry and a
small company of horsemen rode up In
furious haste long before the sun was
lu mid-sky. Au attempt to depict the
sceue betweeu bim und his venturesome wife would be a hopeless task.
Tbe way in which bis face cleared itself of distress and worry was a Joy iu
Itself. To use his own words, he
breathed freely for the lirst time In
hours. The American took the place
of the* officer who rode beside the coach,
and tbe trio kept up an eager, interesting conversation duriug the next two
It was n warm, sleepy day, but all
si;riis of drowsiness disappeared with
the advent of Lorry. He had reached
Edelweiss Into the night before, after
a three days' ride from the conference
In Dawsbergen. At first he encountered trouble iu trying to discover what
bint become of the princess. Those at
the cattle were aware of the fact thut
she hud reached Ganlook safely and
Bought to put liim off with subterfuges.
He stormed to BUCb a degree, however,
thnt their object failed. The result was
that he was oil for Ganlook with the
earliest light of day.
Regarding the! conference with Prince
Gabriel's representatives, be had but
little to say. The escaped murderer
naturally refused to surrender and was
to all appearances quite firmly established in power once more. Lorry's
ouly hope was tbat the reversal of feeling in Dawsbergen might work ruin for
the prince. He was carrying affairs
with a high hand, dealing vengeful
blows to the friends of his half brother
aud encouraging a lawlessness that,
sooner or later, must prove bis undoing.
His sepresentatlves at the conference
were an arrogant, law defying set of
men who laughed scornfully at every
proposal made by the Graustarklans.
"We told them that if he were not
surrendered to our authorities Inside of
sixty days we would declare war and
go down and take him," concluded the
"Two months!" cried Yetive. "I don't
"Tbere was method In that ultimatum. Axphuin, of course, will set up
a bowl, but we can forestall any action the Princess Volga may undertake. Naturally one might suspect
thnt we should declare war at once,
inasmuch as he must be taken sooner
or later, but here Is the point: Before
two months have elapsed the better
element of Dawsbergen will bo so disgusted with the new dose of Gabriel
that It will do anything to avert ��� Tar
ou his account   We have led them to
beucve mat AXpbain will lend moral
If not physical support to our cause.
Give them two months In which to get
over this tremeudous hysteria and
they'll find their senses. Gabriel Isn't
worth it, you see, and down in their
hearts they know It. They really loved
young Dantan, who seems to be a
devil of a good fellow. I'll wager my
head thnt iu six weeks they'll be wishing he wero back on the throne ugaln.
And just to think of it, Yetive, dear,
| you were off there lu tbe very heart ot
Axphaln risking everything!" he cried,
wiping the moisture from his brow.
"It is just eleven days since I left
Edelweiss, uud I huve had a lovely
journey," she Bald, with one of bet
rare smiles. He shook bis head gravely, and she resolved lu her heart never
to give him another such cause for
"And In the meantime, Mr. Grenfall
Lorry, you are blaming me aud hating me and all tbut for belug the real
cause of your wife's escapade," suld
Beverly Calhoun plaintively. "I'm
awfully sorry. But you must remember one thing, sir���I did uot put ber
up to this ridiculous trip. She did It
of her own free will and accord. Besides, I am the one who met the lion
and almost got devoured, uot Yetive,
if you please."
"I'll punish you by turning you over
to old Count Marlaux, the commander
of the army In Graustark," said Lorry laughingly. "He's a terrible ogre,
worse thau any lion."
"Heaven pity you, Beverly, If you
fall into his clutches!" cried Yetive.
"He has had five wives and survives to
look for a bIxUi. You see how terrible
It would be."
"I'm not afraid of him," boasted Beverly, but there came a time when she
thought of those words with a shudder.
"By the way, Yetive, I have had
word from Harry Anguish. He and
tlie countess will leave Paris this week,
If the baby's willing, and will be in
Edelweiss soon. You don't know how
It relieves me to know that Harry will
be with us at this time."
Yetive's eyes answered his enthusiasm. Both had a warm and grateful
memory of the loyal service which the
youug American had rendered his
friend when they had first come to
Graustark in quest of the princess,
nnd both bed a great regard for bis
wife, the Countess Dagmar, who as
Yetive's   lady   in   waiting   had   been
through all the perils of those exciting
days with them.
As they drew near the gates of Edelweiss a large body of horsemen rode
forth to meet them. The afternoon
was well on the way to night, and the
air of the valley was cool and refreshing despite the rays of the June sun.
"Edelweiss at last," murmured Beverly, her face aglow. "The heart of
Graustark. Do you know that I have
been brushing up on my grammar? I
have learned the meaning of the word
'Graustark,' and It seems so appropriate. 'Grau' is gray, hoary, old; 'stark'
is strong. Old and strong, isn't It,
"And here rides the oldest and strongest man in all Graustark ��� the Iron
Count of Marlanx," said Yetive, looking down the road. "See; the strange
gray man in front there Is our greatest
general, our craftiest fighter, our most
heartless warrior. Does he not look
like the eagle or the hawk?"
A moment later the parties met, and
the newcomers swung Into line with
the escort. Two men rode up to the
carriage and saluted. One was Count
Marlanx, the other Colonel Quinnox of
the royal guard. The count, lean and
gray as a wolf, revealed rows of huge
white teeth In his perfunctory smile of
welcome, while youug Qulnnox's face
fairly beamed with houcst Joy. In the
post that he held he was but following
in the footsteps of his forefathers.
Since history began in Graustark a
Quinnox had been In charge of tbe castle guard.
The "Iron Count," as he sometimes
wss called, was past his sixtieth year.
For twenty years bo had been in command of the army. Oue had but to
look at bis strong, sardonic face to
know that he was a fearless leader, a
savage fighter. His eyes were black,
piercing aud never quiet; bis balr aud
close cropped beard were almost snow
white; his voice was heavy and without a vestige of warmth. Since her
babyhood Yetive bad stood In awe of
this grim old warrior. It was no uncommon thiug for mothers to subdue
disobedient children with the threat to
give them over to the Iron Count.
"Old Marlanx will get you if you're
not good," wi, a household phrase In
Edelweiss. He had been married five
times, and as many times had he been
left a widower. If he were disconsolate In any Instance, no one had been
able to discover tbe fact. Enormously
rich, as riches go in Graustark, he bad
found young women for his wives who
thought only of his gold and his lands
in the trade they made wltb Cupid.
It was said that without exception
tbey died happy. Death was a joy.
The fortress overlooking the valley to
the south was no more rugged and unyielding than the man who made his
home within its walls. He lived there
from choice, and It was with his own
money that he fitted up the commandant's quarters In truly regal style.
Power was more to him than wealth,
though be enjoyed both.
Colonel Quinnox brought news from
the castle. Yetive's uncle and aunt, the
Count   and   Countess   Halfont,   were
eagerly expecting her return, and the
city was preparing to manifest its Joy
in  the  most  exuberant  fashion.   As
1 they drew up to the gates the shouts of
1 the people came  to the ears of the
travelers.   Then  the boom of cannon
i and the blare of bands broke upon tbe
I air, thrilling Beverly to the heart Sbe
wondered Jiovv   Yetive  could   be  so
cairn ana flhlaovea in tne race of all
this homage.
Past the great Hotel Regengetz and
tbe tower moved tbe gay procession
Into tbe broad stretch of boulevard
that led to tbe gates of tbe palace
grounds. Tbe gates stood wide open
and inviting. Inside was Jacob Fraasch,
the chief steward of tbe grounds, wltb
bis men drawn up In line; upon tbe
walls the sentries came to parade rest;
on tbe plaza tbe royal band was playing as though by inspiration. Then the
gates closed behind the coach and escort, and Beverly Calhoun was safe
Inside the castle walls. Tbe Iron
Count banded her from the carriage
at tbe portals of the palace, and she
stood as one In a dream.
mHH two weeks following Beverly Calhoun's advent Into the
royal household were filled
with Joy and wonder for her.
Daily sho sent glowing letters to her
father, mother and brothers In Washington, elaborating vastly upon the
paradise iuto which she had fallen. To
her highly emotional mind the praises
of Graustark had been but poorly
sung. The huge old castle, relic of
the feudal days, with Its turrets and
bastions and portcullises, Impressed
her with a never ending sense of wonder. Its grent halls and stairways, Its
chapel, the throne room and the armor
closet; Its underground passages and
dungeons all united to fill her Imaginative soul witli the richest, rarest joys
of romance. Simple American girl
that sho was, unused to tlie rigorous
etiquette of royalty, she found embarrassment in the first confusion of
events, but she was not long In recovering ber poise.
Her apartments were near those of
the Princess Yetive. In tbe private Intercourse eujoyed by these young women all manner of restraint was abandoned by the visitor and every vestige
of royalty slipped from the princess.
Count Halfont and his adorable wife,
the Countess Yvonne, both of whom
bad grown old In the court, found the
girl and her strange servant a source
of wonder and delight.
Some days after Beverly's arrival
there came to the castle Harry Anguish and bis wife, the vivacious Dagmar. With them came the yenr-old
cooing babe who was to overthrow the
heart and head of every being lu the
household, from princess down. The
tiny Dagmar became queen at once,
ind no one disputed her rule.

One hears a great deal about tbe alcohol and opium habits and various
other drug addictions, but rarely does
one hear a word concerning a very
common and In many cases very injurious habit���namely, the tea habit.
This habit Is much more common in
England, Russia and China than In the
United States, but one would hardly
say that it is uncommon here.
The stimulating effect of tea Is due
to an alkaloid identical with the caffeine found In coffee. This principle Is
a valuable medicinal agent; but taken
habitually, exerting as It does a powerful stimulating effect upon the heart
and nervous system, it Is a very serious matter. Some persons drink tea a
long time without suffering any inconvenience; others gradually develop a
train of symptoms which begin with
loss of appetite, dyspepsia and various
stomach derangements, followed by
nervous palpitation of tbe heart, Insomnia, dreams, broken Bleep, Incapacity for mental work, tieurnlgla and various organic ailments. Fatigue follows the slightest effort. The complexion assumes a pasty gray color, the
body becomes thin nnd emaciated, and
approaching decrepitude Is suggested
by the appearance and every action of
the victim.
Of course it does not follow that every one who drinks ten, even liberally,
will suffer like this, but It Is well for
every one to know what may happen.���

���low Mother- Should Prepare For tbe
Weaning  Period.
"A ctillil should not be nursed beyond
tbe twetftli mouth unless tbere Is some
unusually good reason for so doing, as
In these ilnys of high pressure living it
Is doubtful if It Is good for the mother
or child," says Murianna Wheeler In
Harper's Bazar. "Few women nre able
to prolong successfully the nursing period beyond the eighth month, and
usually they must give It up even a
mouth or two earlier. I would advise
every nursing mother to start the very
first month or even the first week giving her baby oue bottle feeding a clpy
in view of tbe fact that the weaning
period is sure to come sooner or later,
often from some unforeseen happening
Instead of in the ordinary course of
events. It Is well to accustom the
stomach at an early age to two kinds
of food. Then If it becomes necessary
to force the weaning suddenly It Is not
such a difficult undertaking. Sudden
changes from one food to another are
not desirable for an Infant, especially
for a very young one with his delicate
and undeveloped organs of digestion."

IiiiIij.-'* Bedroom Slippers.
When making children's little bedroom slippers it is very often difficult
to buy the ordinary lamb's wool soles
in tlie small sizes. Here Is the best
way for making tbem at home: First
procure a piece of thin, soft leather,
which may be bought from most shoe
repairers for a few cents; then cut a
pattern of the sole of baby'B ordinary
shoe the size you require. Afterward
cut out In leather, taking care to get
the rights and lefts. Next take a piece
of tape half an Inch wide, double .t
and machine round edge of sole, leaving the double edge to form a welt to
sew the woolwork to. Now get a piece
of cotton wool aud lay on sole perfectly even, cover with a piece of tissue
paper to prevent wool catching and
machine altogether, leather upward,
nearly half an Inch from the edge so
as not to Interfere with the welt Machine down center of sole, also across,
tear oft the paper, and you will have a

And Constipation���Strong Letter In Recommendation  of
With the liver in healthful," active
condition there is no trouble from
constipation, and this accounts for
the success of Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills as a positive cure for
sluggish  nction of the  bowels.
Mrs. R. I.ockley Jones, Mount
Tolinie,  B.C.,  writes:
"I have used Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pi 11 h for some years and always have them in the house. They
are tlie only pills that relieve me from
constipation and liver troubles, and
I sny this after having tried nearly
all kinds without benefit. I would
not he without them and have recommended them to my friends, many of
whom can bear testimony to their
great value in l'ver and kidney complaints. I am sutislied that Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Fills are unequalled ns n family medicine."
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Fills succeed   where   mere  kidney     medicines
fail because they act promptly and
directly on tlie liver, take tlie work
off the kidneys, and then hy their
invigorating action on tlie kidneys
restore them  to  health  uud   vigor.
Because of the intimate and sympathetic relation of the liver and kidneys it is useless to treat them independently of one another. This
fact was in the mind of Dr. Clinse
when he prepared the formula of his
celebrated Kidney-Liver Pills nud the
phenomenal success 01 this great me-
iMcine has proven his wisdom.
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills positively cure liver complaint, biliousness, constipation, backache nn.l kidney disease. One pill a dose, '2D

and liver, to pin their faith to mutton
and one or two kinds of fish, to give

Those who wish to go further should
reflect first that man is neither carnivorous nor herbivorous. For long sci
entists have obscured the view by useless arguments as to whether or not a
man was meant to live like a cow.
Then* are other species than the
flesh and grass eating animals. All
itudents of comparative anatomy
know that the teeth of human beings
are identical with those of the fru-
givorous apes, who live on fruits arid
nuts. Not. only so. b**t the proportion
of bowel length to body length in man
corresponds exactly with that in the
same species in marked- contrast to
what obtains in all carnivorous animals where the bowel is proportionally short.
A study of anatomy therefore suggests a fruit diet as the most suitable.
Further confirmation is afforded bv
the obvious predilection of nearly all
children for such food. The best fruits
for food are apples, bnnanas, grapes,
nuts, dates, raisins and figs.
Nuts are especially valuable owing
to the large amount of fat they contain. The old fashioned idea that they
are indigestible Is due partly to the
error in taking them at the end of an
already more than ample meat meal
and partly to insufficient mastication.
Chestnuts are the easiest to digest
and make an excellent food. Many
other fruits may be taken, always remembering that stone fruits sometimes disagree and that acid fruits
should be taken in moderation. Strawberries contain a considerable amount
of purine and should be avoided by
all with a gouty or rheumatic tendency. Among fruits we include those
of the cereals, such as wheat and
rice. White bread is free from purin.
but brown bread contains a varying
amount derived from the husk. The
most wholesome form of bread ia unleavened.���Lancet.
The Junius Letteri.
No fewer than thirty-seven persons
have had the "Letters of Junius" assigned to them, but since the publication of Taylor's "Junius Identified"
in 1816 Sir Philip Francis has generally been regarded as their author. Sir
Philip, who was at school with
Woodfall, the publisher of the letters,
was a clerk in the Secretary of State's
office and wrote for the papers under
various names. It ia upon the similarity of his known writings to the
style of Junius that his claim is principally based, though experts have
also identified his writing With the
feigned hand In which the letters
were written. The most famous of the
other claimants are Burke, the statesman; the American General Lee, who
is said to have himself claimed them;
Lord George Sackville and Home
Tooke.���London Answers.
Hla Humor.
He prided himself on being a humorist. He was running down the
steps of the hospital in which he was
working when he met a fellow student
leisurely climbing up.
"Hello, Brown!" cried the slow one,
notioing his friend looked pleased.
"You're in a hurry. What's the matter? Any good cases?"
"I should think so!" cried Brown,
jnst bursting with a new pun. "We've
got a woman in the ward upstairs who
is ao cross eyed that the tears run
down her back."
"What I" said his friend. "Could not
do anything for her, could you?"
"I should think we could," replied
Brown. "We treated her for bacteria."
And away he rushed to fire it off on
some one else.���London Tit-Bita.
Hit Hereditary Foe.
An Irishman, a Scotchman and an
Englishman on the unemployed list
were once tramping. the country in
search of work. On coming to a field
of turnips they took several in order
to appease the pangs of hunger. For
this they were dragged before the
judge, who took a lenient view of the
case. Before sentencing each to 12
lashes on the bare back he agreed to
confer a small favor according as each
requested. The Englishman asked the
favor of his overcoat, the Scotchman
his own as well as that of the Englishman, while the Irishman, casting
a sly glance at the judge, said, "May
It please your honor, I would just
like the Englishman across my back."
A   Driller.
An Irishman looking for work took
his stand in a group at the gate of a
large engineering establishment. By
and by the foreman came up to the
gate and asked:
"Are there any drillers  herer"
"Yes," said Pat, stepping forward.
He got the job at once, but he had
not been working long at the machine
when it broke down. The foreman.
In anything but a pleasant mood,
then inquired:
"Where, man, did you learn drilling?"
"In the militia," was Pat's reply.���

Bird seed Is sure to attract mice. A

Heroic  Treatment.
In these days, when child study Is s
bobby ridden long and bard, it Is Interesting to read of the nerve training
which fell to the lot of the Quaker authoress, Amelia Opie, In 1709 and after. The modern mother would shrink
with horror from some of the methods
used on tbe sensitive child, but In this
case it resulted In splendid stuff. Mrs.
Opie Is quoted in a book on "Quaker
"I was a creature of fears, tears nnd
screams. My first terror was of black
beetles, then of frogs, skeletons, black
men and madmen. My mother made
me take a beetle in my hand and bold
It As her word was law, I obeyed, but
with awful shrinking. I gradually became accustomed to it and was frequently told to take one up and put It
out of harm's way. I soon overcame
that terror. I was made to hold frogs
In my hands and was taught to nurse
a skeleton as I would a doll. Mother
compelled me to listen to her kindly
converse with two poor old lunatics,
and I grew to pity them Instead of
fearing them."

Bow They Save Light* In Stornowuy.
On a sunken reef 800 feet distant
from Stornoway lighthouse Is a re
markable beacon which warns mariners with the help of a light which Is
only apparent. The beacon Is a cone
of cast Iron plates, surmounted with a
lantern containing a glass prism. The
prism derives Its light from refracting
the rays emitted from the lighthouse,
and the optical delusion is marvelous.
Mariners naturally suppose that there
is a lighted lamp on the beacon Itself,
and many of them will not believe otherwise. But the object of the beacon
Is attained when the navigator sees the
reflected light, which Indicates the perilous rock below. This beacon In the
north of Scotland has been in use
more tban half a century, and since It
was fixed In position others bave been
placed In other neighborhoods to make
clear points of danger. It Is an Ingenious and very effective safeguard
against perils of tbe coast

When natural gas was first brought
into use in America there seemed to
be a general idea that the supply was
inexhaustible. It was sold ut low
rates and usually without measurement. This method encouraged waste
in the consumption of gas, and waa
shortly abandoned by the larger
companies. Today nearly all consumption is sold by measurement. It
is believed that the time 1ms now
come when it is possible to procure
statistics of the quantity of gas consumed, and next year this will ho
undertaken, The method will give
such figures in the future that a moro

the capacity of gas areas to maintain a commercial supply of gas for
