Commission Estimates There
Is 30,000 Tons Available injDlstrlct.
For a Long Time To Come Zinc Ore
Or spelter Will Have To
Eo Exported.
The report of the commission appointed by tlie Dominion to Investigate
the zinc resources of British Columbia
lAiidthe conditions' affecting her exploitation was issued on Tuesday the 23rd ult.
Mr. Walter Kenton Ingalls, editor of the
Engineering and Mining Journal, of
New York, was appointed chief of staff
with Philip Argftllj M.K,, of Denver
college, and A.G. Garde, of Nelson, B.C.,
are his assistants. Dr A. E. Barlow and
Mr. Joseph Keele, of the. geological
survey of Canada were associated with
them, and were detailed to investigate
the undeveloped zinc deposits. The investigation covered an examination of
tbe development of the mines, of the
methods of milling, of tlie adaptability
of tho ore to tlie new methods of contraction, marketing of the concentrate,
including the question of smelting in
the province nnd elsewhere, and the
possibility of special utilization of the
zinc ore of high silver content.
The commission ascertained that
zinc in large commercial quantities can
be produced in British Columbia. The
tonnage immediately available in tlie
AlnWoi'th and Slocan districts was estimated to be approximately 1)0,000 tons
of A-l zinc, corresponding to a production of upwards of 12,000 tons of spelter
or about four times the present consumption of the Dominion. For a long
time to come, Mr Ingalls says, a large
portion of zinc ore or spelter produced
in the Dominion will be exported. The
American tariff of l.S cents a pound prohibits export of spelter, and besides tlie
United States exports spelter. Tbe
greater part of the spelter produced in
Canada has been marketed in Europe.
The prospects arc, with tbe employment
of correct methods of milling, etc., that
establish the zinc industry capable of
the wants of a Dominion foi\ a long
time, will be established.
The cost of mining was placed at
$050 for every ton of material taken
from two of tbe largest mines. At the
present time an imperfect knowledge
. of the classes of ore dealt with was
tho cause of some of tlie mills which
were formerly operated in British Columbia, shutting down. If tbe details
pet forth in the report are followed,
these mills can .resume business at a
profit. Several business scbenies for
milling are set forth in the report.
The report also shows that the zinc ores
of British Columbia can be highly concentrated by magnetic treatment, a zinc
concentrated in niarty cases assaying
upwards of 40 per cent zinc, in many
cases concentrates assaying 50 per cent
zinc, and in a few cases as high as 57
percent zinc.
In regard to marketing, up-to 1905 the
producing of zinc ore in Britisli Columbia was about 11,000 tons, which was
chiefly exported to the United States,
a small quantity being sent to Europe.
Since the establisliinci.t of Canadian
smelting works at Frank, Alberta, Canada has entered the market for these
The most profitable market for these
ores is governed by the prevailing
price of spelter at London and New
York. Accordingly, the London and
New York prices, together with the
freight rates to tlie destlnated points,
must be considcrd in determining where
the ore bIuiII bo marketed to the best advantage. Another fact to be borne in
mind is Ihat Britisli Columbia ores going
to the United Stales are subject to a duty
of 80 per cent, whereas no duty is imposed on those ores imported into Europe. (
Tho question of smelting in British
Columbia or elsewhere in Canada is
minutely treated in tlie report. So far
as fuel is concerned, British Columbia
or Alberta is better situated for smelting
than are the zinc smelters of the United
Sitttes for the reason that coal can be
pi'ocured in either of the provinces named for between $1 and $2 a ton, a much
lower price than can be obtained in tlie
adjoining republic. And since- one Ion
of ore requires approximately two tons
of coal for smelting, it is no small item
to be considered.
On the other hand the cost of labor
in tlie United States is somewhat
cheaper than in Canada, and the former
country also enjoys the advantage of
already possessing skilled workers while
this country has yet to produce trained
men. The investigation of this phase
of the subject by the commission has
demonstrated that the selling of the
zinc is commercially feasible in Canada.
The high eilver zinc ore, the report
dcolareB, is commonly called not as
material for tho zinc smelters, but for
tlie silver lend smelters to whom they
are disposed of.
Development Plans.
The Monitor and Ajux Fraction, Ltd.,
an English company operating in the
Slocan district and owning the Monitor
mine near Three Forks, tbe Bosun mine
near New Denver, and a recently completed concentrating mill at Rosebery.
is planning to develop the mines named
on a systematic scale, says the B. C.
Record. Both contain large quantities
of zinc, which, under present conditions,
is not favorable to active operations, so
the company is not mining just now.
Certain improvements, found advisable,
have been made to the concentrating
plant, which is stated to bo now working
smoothly and making an average recovery of (15 per cent of the lead, 89 per
cent of the silver, and 81 per cent of the
zinc contont of the ore treated. During
the two months it had been running
when the distriot was visited lately,
about 1,900 tons of ore had been put
through the mill. Ore bins have been
built on lhe water front of the Bosun
property, Slocan Lake, and a gravity
tramway to the mine constructc I. This
provision lir shipping admits of the old
dumps of ore being sent to the mill at
Rosebery, for scows carrying four railway cars can be quickly loaded and the
ore h.e thus cheaply conveyed 10 the mill.
These shipping bins have a total capacity of about 400 tons and the cars can
be tilled from them in less than half an
hour. Sonae development work was
done last summer at the Bosun, this
consisting of tlie extension of three adit
tunnels, iu each of which ore was encountered, At the Monitor there is
plenty 0/ ore���when last at work in that
mine it was found that tlie.ie was from
<i to 4*2 in. of solid ore in tbe lowest level. It is stated to be only a question of
unfavoable marketing conditions, or
this mine would be steadily producing
It is understood that the owners of the
Enterprise mine, .situated at the head
of Ten-Mile Creek, in the Slocan City
mining divl-ion, contemplate joining
for es with those of the-Iron Horse, an
adjoining property on tlie north, so that
the two maybe worked jointly. Some

Sanguine and Writes in
Prophetic Mood.
Silverton, B.C., Oct. 80.���The Wakefield mill started work to-day on ore
from the Wakefield mine, under the
management of Q. A. Gordon, and as
extensive improvements have been
made, everything is expected to run
smooth a��d save the values of the ore.
The Vancouver tramway to the Wakefield mill is completed and in operation.
Tbe high-grade ore from tho Vancouver
will he shipped and the low-grade concentrated at the mill.
The Lorna Doone and Hewitt Mines
have put on huge forces of men. Both
mines will be steady shippers.
The Standard mine, under the management of George Aylard, is, making
extensive improvements for the winter's
work. New bunk-houses, ore sheds,
bins and offices, etc., are being built,
and when all the improvements now
under construction are completed, thcro
will be a little city at the Standard.
Silverton pan boast of four largejproduc-
ing mines : The.Vancouvcr, the Hewitt,
the Lorna Doone,, and the Standard, besides a number of other mines which
arc steady shippers. Who says Silver-
ton is not on the boom and' epming to
the front? What will come to pass
next year wjll be us follows :
The C.l'.R. will build their road from
Denver Canyon to Silverton;
Tlie Bank of Montreal will open a
branch here when the C.P.B. has completed its road to Silverton;
It will be the head of navigation on
Slocan Luke;
The Slocan Mining Review will move
from Sandon to Silverton, or some other
good newspaper will locate here 1
Every house in town will bo occupied;
We will have new clothing and
drug stores, and many other branches
of business will be started up to make
Silverton the King of Cities in the
Slocan district; and why ?
Because we have the producing mines!
Because silver and lead is steadily increasing in value; silver will reach 80
cents and stay close to that figure !
Because we have the best natural
location for a city there is in B. 0.1
Because men of means and push are
coming in!
Because the silver lining to the clouds
is casting a reflection on Silverton that
will be lasting forages to-come.

motee ano Comment. I
Wheu the warm spring breezes of
1907 arrive, there will come thousands
of desirable settlers from afar to this
Land of Promise looking for fruit lands.
This is no pipe dream. In the English
press of late considerable space has been
devoted to praises for our'cliuiatc and
fertility of our soil. This spontaneous
advertising will have for British Columbia a wholesome effect, and wc arc
wondering whether New Denver, Silver-
toir, Slocan City and other points along
fair Slocan Lake are going to wake up to
the fact that there is turn in the tide
of prosperity, and thai they must go out
to meet it. These towns have, business
men who are usually wide-awake to any
project which will bring dollars and
dimes to their coffers. They have a
glorious Inheritance at their very floors,
and the opportune time has arrived
when that heritage can be turned to
good accbunt. They must not rest on
their oars. They niiiBt devise ways and
means to obtain a share of the prosperity which is coming this way. They
must let the world know what thev
have to offer. Wo have fruit lands ill
the Slocan which cannot bo surpassed
in tlie Dominion. Nelson is being extensively advertised in every city along
the trunk lines by real estate and land
agents, and Slocan will not envy Nelson
in tlie resulting prosperity. But Slocan
should be ready and watchful to see that
it got something more substantial than
the " tailings." We would like to see
the business men of the towns mentioned get together and formulate an
aggressive programme of advertising
which would redound to their credit
and to the lasting good of that section
of the division. Push and energy will
accomplish much. It will bo a long
wai\if you wait for Nelson people to run
prospective land buyers up this way to
buy. Nelson is but the threshold of a
largo lruft raising territory in the same
sense that Winnipeg is the gateway of a
vast wheat area. Nelson, however, will
not advertise the salubrious climate and
beautiful scenery of Slocan Lake,
neither tan il bo expectod of them to
sing the praises of our fertile soil to
every onquirer who comes along. They
have axes to grind first, likewise troubles
oftheirown. STRIKE OUT, SLOCAN!
A comprehensive scheme of advertising
will repay you a thousandfold.
With silver hovering around 71 cents
an ounce, with only a short visible
supply and a constantly increasing demand; with copper in the neighbor
hood of 22 cents a pound, the highest
point reached in 16 years; with lead
at a most favorable figure, the outlook
for the district is rosy indeed. Lot us
vote for further favors along the same
lines. Let us be thankful that the
treatment rate has been materially reduced. Let uf be on the qui vive for
Capital which is again knocking at the
door, and let every man who has an interest in the country act the Bame in
the mining business as he would in
anv other. Don't be disgruntled. Point
with pride to the fact that they are winning out at properties where deep mining prevails. Optimism iB infectious,
but it's healthy. In the face of such
good reports from the Slocan mines who
can be otherwise than confident for the
future. Ore worth millions will be extracted from our hills within the next
ten years. The lowering of transportation and treatment charges and the rise
in the price of metals raises the value
of every ton of ore mined. The zinc
difficulty is ulso straightening itself out.
The report of the Zinc Commission,
which appears to be wholly satisfactory,
"The tonnage immediately available
in the Ainsworth and Slocan districts is
estimated to bo approximately 80,000
tons of A-l zinc, corresponding to a
production of upwards of 12,000 tons of
spelter, or aboui four times the present
consumption of the Dominion."
It is highly probable, too, that the
present prohibitive States tariff will, if
not entirely eliminated, be'considerably
reduced ; and if the proposed bounty on
zinc materializes, there are prosperous
times ahead, and we shall feel the
change in the immediate future,
Our mission is to supply a newsy
local paper and to let the mining world
know that the bottom has not fallen
out of the Slocan. Several deals have
been made this fall, which goes to prove
Unit capital is again becoming interested. Your turn may come next, li you
receive a reasonable offer fer your property, let it go.
One of the surest signs of a revival in
Our staple industry is tlie number of
experts who have visited us lately examining properties. We have claims
second to none, and every inducement
should bo given to capital to develop
them. This is no wildcat country, so
large offers for partly developed prospects must not bo looked for. A pleas-
fng feature^ to note is that English
capifaHs again trending Slocanwards.
For several years in London financial
circles British Columbia IiaB been rigidly
excluded from their lists of fruitful
fields of mining investment, but poor
old B.C. has not been to blame. Rather
is it that the methods of their " mining
engineers " and fool experts have given
the country a black eye besides impoverishing the speculators, But the continued success following legitimate
mining has made them inquisitive, and
once again they will become involved in
mining in the district, They are wdse
ere this as to the causes of their failures
hitherto, and their operations in the
future will be tempered with discretion.

Syndicate of Local Men Make
First Payment on Rich
Group of Claims:
Demonstrate Faith In Camp In Practical Manner nnd Make A
Valuable Shipment.
A property which has all the earmarks of a big mine is tbe McAllister,
one of a group of claims on the norlh
fork of Carpenter creek, the others
being the N.Y.Z., Rouse Fraction,
S.M.R., and Ridgway. 'These properties were staked as far back as 18113, and
tbey paid right from tbe grrss-rootB.
The ontcroppings were ganged out by
the owners straight away and two ears
of ore were shipped to the smelter,
which yielded 200 ozs. of silver to the
ton. At this period in the history or
the Slocan, prospectors wero continually locating claims with big surface
showings and extracting and shipping
tlie ore, which required practically iittlo
or no mining, at a handsome profit. It
so happened thai the McAllister group
was left after the ore-on sight was extracted, although the legal assessment
work has been ..faithfully done and recorded every year.
The j>wners wero firmly convinced,
however, that the ore went down, but
not being men of money they could not,
proceed with a Scheme of underground
prospecting, neither did they put a
prohibitive purchase price upon their
property. They were prepared to give
capital almost any terms if liny would
come in and develop lhe property, but
in tills they were not successful. Tho
leasing system which has become very
popular of hue, is the method -by
which tlie property has again been
opened up.
Where capital lias lacked lhe necessary backbone to investigate, local enterprise has riskid the liHzaul and won
out. A syndicate of local men, with
unlimited confideilee in the camp, have
demonstrated to capital what can be
done wiih small funds anil practically
nothing lint brains, brawn and muscle.

The chateau now became almost uninhabitable. Servants were kept running hither and thither, going to Hon-
fleiir evpry day and returning loaded
down with packages, which were
quickly opened by Parisian dressmakers, whose pretty works invaded
even the stately drawing-room, while
Robert cried In dismay: "Why so
much luxury, and what shall we do
with thirty-six trunks?"
"That Is my department," laughed
Edmee. "Men know nothing about
trousseaus. All they can do is to acknowledge their absolute Ignorance
mill moan In secret, if that is any relief."
"I do moan," sighed Robert
"I said 'In secret-'" retorted his
fiancee, severely.
There seemed lo he no room for the
mistress of the chateau. The lovers Invaded the whole houso and had no
need of Marthe's presence. Poor Marthe suffered In secret and none even
noticed her, excepting Aunt Relie,
who, from her corner, watched attentively, trying to guess tlie cause of
her dear child's sadness and silence
In the midst of this joy and bustle.
Edmee was satisfied with the smiles
of her sister without seeing that they
were forced. Often Marthe glided out
of the drawing-room unnoticed, and
withdrew to the solitude of her boudoir or wandered feverishly through
the avenues of the park.
Not daring to analyze the state of.
her poor suffering heart, she made a
few entries In her diary. One day,
however, she wrote the following:
"September 10.���In ten days they
shall be married. They will leave at
once, and then all will be over, I wish
It were to be to-morrow. Shall I have
the courage to go to the end without betraying myself, or will they read what
I suffer on my pale, worn face? I examined myself In the mirror, and alas!
how changed and old I have grown! I,
who always seemed younger than my
ace, now look more than thirty; anil
who cares or notices me. My good
mint alone is troubled. 'What Ir the
matter, my little Marthe?' she asks.
������Jothlne, dear Aunt,' I reply, 'a little
tired, that Is all. I am not used to
these perpetual visits and all this bustle. When we are alone once more, as
of old, I shall resume my old ways
and good looks.' 'The fact Is,' grumbles Aunt Relie, 'that delicious Edmee Invades the whole chateau. She
looks as if she were the mistress of
the house and kindly permitted us to
sit at her table. Are you still In love
with your sister?' 'I believe I love her
more than ever,' I assure her, 'and
want her to be happy, for her faults
are on the surface only. If you knew
how loving and caressing she Is when
we are alone in my boudoir.' 'Yes,
when she has nothing better to do,'
sniffles my aunt���but she was always
unjust to Edmee.
"I must admit, however, that she is
invading. When I proposed Inviting a
few friends for the summer, she said,
with a pout: 'Am I not enough?' I
laughed, and did not send my Invitations. In fact, she is quite enough to
fill the country with noise, gaiety and
"While I write, sadly, oh! so sadly,
the murmur of their voices comes to
me. They are happy, deliclously happy. Robert completely forgets his
work, his ambitions, his future! He
loves, and that love fills his life. And
he thought he loved me! I still trem-
blo to think that this other love, the
true love, might have come after our
marriage. Then, all seems for the better; I do not complain, and I face the
long, solitary, melancholy years to
come without terror. I never shall
many, for I could not love again since
I have loved, since alas!���I can say
It here where no eyes shall ever see
It���I still love! And more passionately than ever. All I ask Is that no one
shall ever suspect the truth!
"Outside of this mad love, there
exists a curious state of uneasiness in
Robert. He seems haunted by the fear
that his happiness will escape him;
and he wants to hurry preparations,
make the day nearer. There is something more than the natural Impatience of the lover. He has more
than once spoken of the malevolent
curiosity which seems attached to
him and which he can not understand.
It may be the jealousy of the peasants, aroused by the luxury of this
marriage, which is the event of the
season. The fact Is that, though much
loyed in the vicinity, I also feel something of that uneasiness of which Robert speaks. It Is something undelin-
able, but I feel it acutely.
"Robert has still another reason for
wishing a speedy departure, and for
his anxiety to take his wife far from
gossiping tongues. For many years, he
was considered as my f flture husband;
and he fears that an echo of the truth
may reach Edmee, though assured
that neither his mother nor myself
would reveal It. Yet he trembles lest
some word may escape us. This has
becomo a veritable maala with him,
and Is Increased by a curious sentiment; not shame, for he had always
acted loyally, but something near It.
What is most strange Is that this half-
shame does not came of having broken off with me, but rather that ho
should ever have thought of marrying
anyone but his bewitching Edmee.
"His fiancee affects a little jealousy
and it enraptures him. The other evening we were all gathered around the
fire-place when she said, abruptly:
" 'Marthe, you have known Robert
since his childhood; and you must tell
me the truth.'
" 'Does he not tell you the truth,' I

..ci-caua, or course, that i nave never
loved anyone but him. I am not yet
nineteen and I have never met anyone else that I liked. But he Is thirty,
and saw many women before he met
" 'That Is very probable,' I said,
smiling; 'a man meets many women in
Paris. It is even possible that he may
have conversed with women, and even
young girls in drawing-rooms.'
"'You know very well that I don't
mean that. I don't mind a few flirtations since he swears he has never
truly loved but me. But I would be
very angry to think he ever dreamed
of marrying anyone else. Tell me;
was he ever engaged?'
"I felt that my face must betray my
agony in the fitful fire-light, and I
also felt that Robert's eyes were fixed
on me beseechingly. With an effort, I
brought a smile to my quivering lips,
and said:
" 'I doubt very much If Robert was
ever engaged. I know that, since his
majority, his mother has been dreaming of finding an ideal wife for him.
Had sho found her, It Is more than
probable that I should have been the
first informed of the fact, since we
are such old friends.'
" 'But she must surely have thought
of you?'
"Ah, the cruel child!���How aid I
ever summon courage to answer calmly? how Is it that I did not faint before their eyes? I seemed to hear the
echo of my voice, far, far away, as I
again forced a smile to my lips, mur-
" 'It Is very probable. But children
brought up as brother and sister rarely marry.'
"Evidently satisfied, Rdmee arose to
replace a log on the fire Robert followed to assist her and furtively pressed
my hand. I drew my chair back from
the bright firelight, just then tea was
brought in, and Robert abruptly
changed the conversation, saying: 'Do
you know that we are the subjects of
Interminable gossips In the neighborhood ?
" 'Wherever I go, people turn to
stare at me, women stand on the
threshold to follow me with their
" 'Just what they do with us!' cried
Edmee. 'I did not think the Normans
were so curious.'
" 'It annoys me so,' continued Robert, 'that the ol .er day, I turned and
asked a peasant why he gazed at me
so curiously. "On account of your
marriage, Monsieur," he replied;
"they say It makes you very gay���"
"Well, does it make you sad when
you marry?" I asked. "Oh! when we
take a wife, we don't make such a
fuss as the rich people. Besides, you
were mighty lucky that the captain
should be killed just in time to leave
you a free field'.' "His death grieved
me very much," I said. The man turned away with a mocking laugh. Upon
my word, for a moment I thought he
would accuse me of being the murderer.'
"Jean was just entering with the
tray, and, through awkwardness or
agitation, I know not which, the cups
rattled against each other and he
could scarcely lay them on the table.
When I asked him what was the matter, he replied, quickly: 'Nothing,
Mademoiselle, nothing���a little dizziness, that Is all, I am subject to it.'
He was very pale and clutched the
furniture for support; as he went out,
the others, who had remarked nothing, continued their conversation
around the fireplace. As Aunt Relie
placed her embroidery aside to take
up the cup of tea, I heard her ask,
" 'Robert, why did you not attend
Mrs. Robinson's reception on that
"'Yes!' cried Edmee, 'why did you
not come?'
'"Because I felt 111, jealous and
cross,' he replied.
" 'Tell us how you spent your time?'
persisted Aunt Relie.
"Robert was visibly ill at ease and
looked Imploringly at me; but I could
do nothing to help him.
" 'It Is such a long time ago'���he
stammered; 'how can I remember?���I
believe I wandered aimlessly through
the forest, as I often do when 1b bad
" 'And you jumped through the window,' laughed Edmee.
" 'Probably. I don't remember.'
"He arose and joined me at the
table. I saw that his hand ' trembled
and motioned him to sit down, while
I carried the tea to my aunt, who, it
seems to me, was looking at Robert
in a queer way.
" 'What Is It, Aunt?' I whispered.
"'Nothing, my dear,' she replied.
���Only I regret that Robert should have
so little memory. It must be Inconvenient in his work as a historian.'
"If among the peasantry, the curiosity excited by this approaching marriage is malevolent���God alone knows
why���our friends, on the contrary,
seem disposed to rejoice over It. It is
a new phase of the warfare between
the hut and the chateau. We ��ave accepted dinners and fetes of all kinds
for miles around. This has not been
the least of my trials. I have been
forced to look happy In the happiness
of Edmee; to endure from many a
sort of usexpressed pity which Is terribly painful to me. I am brave
enough, but If the effort were prolonged my courage would give way.
There Is a limit to human strength.
"As we have no near relative to
lead Edmee to the altar, I have asked
an old friend and neighbor, the Marquis de Saint Pierre, to assume the
role of father. Although old and retiring, he accepted Immediately; and
yesterday he gave a great dinner In
honor of the fiancee, to which he invited all the titled celebrities of the
neighborhood. Our name sounded
very plebeian In the midst of those
sonorous titles, but Edmee's beauty
threw all the other women In the
shade. She naturally took precedence;
not only In her quality of fiancee, but
by right of conquest, through her
grace and beauty. And how proud
Robert seemed of her!
"The Marquis has always been very
kind to me, treating me with a mixture of courtesy that savors of the
ancient regime and of paternal benevolence. He Btill remembers that he
was a witness to my mother's marriage, and takes a great Interest In

" 'You have always been so kind to
me. Marquis, that I have never hesitated to ask you a service, even at the
rick of Imposing a task on you,' I replied.

girl can not be called a task; I should

to say. My name Is old in this country and will Impose silence on ill-disposed persons���'
"'What ill-disposed persons?' I interrupted. 'What can anyone have
against us?'
"It seems to me that the Marquis
got a little muddled In speaking of
the gossip this marriage had occasioned, the criticism on the display of
luxury, etc.���As I looked at him in
perplexity, trying to discover the real
meaning of his confused words, he
took me affectionately by the hand
and abruptly changed the subject.
" 'And now, my dear child,' he resumed, 'let me speak to you as a
father; I will not conceal from you
that Mme. d'Ancel and myself often
spoke together of her long-cherished
dream of calling you her daughter.
But you would not have It so and for

keeps me for herself. You see, I am

"In spite of myself, I am afraid there
was a tinge of bitterness in what I
had tried to say in a bantering tone.
It was with an effort that I stifled a
sob, and my old friend shook his head
jadly and a little perplexed:
" 'There Is a false ring to those
words, Marthe,' he said, gravely. 'Ah!
I wish you would be frank and open-
hearted as In the past! Listen to me,
shild. You must marry.'
" 'Never!���'
" 'Yet, a woman should marry���!'
"'That Is what my aunt says; It Is
a social and patriotic duty. But I don't
see the necessity; there are always
enough who will make the sacrifice.'
" T have an excellent match to propose.'
" 'My dear Marquis, you must understand that If I will not have a husband I will still less accent a "match."
If you knew how much I detest that
word! You muBt resign yourself; I

Unfortunately, I have no such inclinations.'

Where Montgomery Pell.
Canadians will recall the row made
about the taking down for repairs of
a sign board on the cliff at Quebec,
which board tells that Gen. Montgomery fell there. What particular glory
there was In the feat of Gen. Montgomery I have never been able to see.

As the "Spectator" stood there musing
on the things that might have been, a
carriage drove up, containing three ladles. The driver announced, "Here waa
where Montgomery fell." The ladles
craned their necks. "Where did he fall
from?" "From up there, madam I He
fell from the place where you see the
sign, down to the rood here, and the
fall ended his life." The "Spectator"
was highly amused at this Interpretation of the word "fall." Following old
Chaimiplaln street, he ca-ne to the shore
of the St Lawrence, and entered Into
conversation with on old Irish woman.
He related to her what he had Just
heard; but. Instead of -sharing his
amusement, she said, seriously, "Tie,
I've heard my old father tell about It;
he said Gen. Montgomery was on horseback when he fell, and the fall killed
both horse and rider!"

Making Marriage a Success.
In business, if problems arise, a
man seeks to master them; if in-
harmonies threaten to eclipse his suc-
ces, he seeks to remove them; he
does not let things drift or work
themselves out in -some .way; lie
knows it is his business to find out
where things arc wrong and how he
can set them right; ne does not shut
his eyes to troubles, and think he is
curing them by obscuring them. Men
are often resigned to conditions in
their home that they would never
surrender to in their business; they
often accept as inevitable in their
home life what they could change if
they only would. It is cowardly to
accept any wrong condition if uny
amount of effort will right it.
People often fan meniselves into
the serene self-satisfaction that they
are bravely accepting fate when they
are really only too mentally lazy or
morally inert to take a bold, firm
stand to win the Iieedom of thought
and action they desire. There are
litle rifts in the lute of marriage
happiness that, unnoted nnd uncorrected, widen until the music of sweetness is lost. There are little differences that a few moments of listening, a few moments of kindly wisdom
and explanation will, set right, but
foolish pride may deter, and a heart
is wounded; unrest, vague misunderstanding and suspicion dethrone confidence and a sad growing-apart may
darken-the years.
Sometimes the lack of proper understanding comes from that moral cowardice that seeks only to preserve
'peace in the family.' This is a false
peace. It is treason thus meekly to
surrender, shutting out the true white
light of real peace for a silent suffering protest which eats into the heart.

Str-nfle Religious Ceremony In An Old
Druid Haunt.
A remarkable christening has recently taken place In a remote part of
Derbyshire, Harborougrh Hill, In the
western portion of the county, said to
have "been a haunt of the Druids, and
apparently used both for worship and
as a place of burial.
���Some years ago a number of human
skulls, which had been compactly
burled there In some distant century,
were unearthed at the summit of this
lofty ridge, which commands a view
over six counties, terminating In the
peak of Snowden, the latter being easily visible on a clear day. The hill
���bristles with fantastic dolomite crags,
some of which were, it is supposed,
shaped by the Druids for ceremonial
A We block of limestone has been
carved Into a capacious chair; another
rock, with a flat top, appears to have
been used as an altar, and an adjacent
monolith, In which a Semicircular bowl
has been scooped out, looks like a rude
font. It was with water from this ancient rock bowl that the ���shild ��� the
daughter of a farmer In the district���
���was lately christened. The little girl,
three months old, was carried up to this
wild, bleak spot, accompanied by numerous relatives, Including, of course,
the necessary godfather and godmother, and there, with the wind howling
among the crags, baptism was administered by a lay reader.
There Is no record of any similar rite
having been celebrated on Hai'borough
Hill; and the conditions of this picturesque baptism appear to be quite unique.

Tsiey Proved TheuiHelves Independent or the Sense of Sight.
Bats are remarkably independent of
the sense of sight. A naturalist describes some experiments demonstrating this fact. Covering the eyes of a
bat with wax, he released the creature
in a room. It first of nil made its way
to the door, but instead of striking
this hovered a few inches off, slowly
making its way along the top edge ami
down the side, apparently guided by
the incomiug draft of air. Next a
thorough exploration of the room was
made, and throughout the examination
It never once struck either chairs or
table and swerved aside when a stick
was placed in Its path. As a result
of this experiment naturalists believe
that bats have an acute perception of
atmospheric currents nnd vibrations
resident iu the nerves of the wing
This matter was thoroughly investigated so long ago as 171)3, when, by the
cruel experiment of blindiug the animals, It was shown that they could
cross a room across which silken
threads were stretched In such n way
as to leave Just sufficient space lor
them to pass between with outstretched wings. They not only succeeded In
passing tlie threads without touching
them, but they avoided with equal ease
the walls aud celling. Even when Unthreads were placet) still nearer together they managed, by contracting the
wings, to puss without contact. Branches of trees were similarly avoided, and
when tired they suspended themselves
on the walls of the room as easily as If
tbey enjoyed the use of sight.
From this it was inferred that these
creatures possess a murvelously delicate sense of touch in the wing membranes. . But It is also regarded as
probable that this is increased by the
expansion of lhe skin of the external
ear and by the development of folds
of skin on the nose und muzzle. In
some bats, Indeed, n perfect rosetto
of such skin is developed in the latter
region, as In the "leaf nosed" hats,
and it is supposed that the additional
lobe of the ear, known as the "tragus,"
performs a similar function.

A Rheumatic Sufferer Cured by Dr.
Williams'  Pink Pills.
Rheumatism is rooted in the blood
���that is a medical fact every poor
rheumatic sufferer should know.
Liniments and outward applications
cannot possibly cure rheumatism.
They are a waste of money, and while
the sufferer is using them the disease
is steadily growing worse���is slowly
but surely taking a firmer grasp upon
the entire system. Rheumatism must
be treated through the blood. That
is the only way in which the poisonous acid can be driven out. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills actually make
new blood and thus cure rheumatism.
Every dose of these pills helps to
make new rich red blood which
sweeps the poisonous acid from the
system, loosens the aching joints and
muscles and gives the rheumatic new
health free from pain. Among those
who can bear witness to the truth of
these statements is Miss Dorsina
Langlois, of St. Jerome, Que., for
weary months she suffered from
rheumatism and had begun to think
she was incurable. "I could not
straighten up" says Miss Langlois,
"My limbs were almost useless, so
stiff were they. For many months I
endured such pains as only rheumatic sufferers can understand. Although only thirty years of age the
suffering I endured actually made
me look like an old woman. I used
liniments and tried several medicines
but got not the slightest help until
almost by chance my attention was
directed to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
I began taking them and in the
course of a few weeks I could see
they were helping me. Little by
little the pain began to go, and the
stiffness to leave my joints. I continued taking the pills for several
months when every symptom of the
trouble had disappeared. I have not
felt a twinge of rheumatism since,
and I bless the day Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills came to my notice."
Dr. Williams Pink Pills never fail
to cure rheumatism because they go
right to the root of the trouble in the
blood. That is why these pills cure
all the common ailments due to poor
and watery blood, such as anaemia,
headaches and backaches, indigestion,
neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, generai
weakness, and the distressing irregularities that afflict women and grow-
jing girls. If you need a medicine
you will save money by taking Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills at once. See
that the full name Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People is printed
on the wrapper around every box.

not been given any special orders to
stop it. If young people feel like kissing and hugging on the street I guese
It Is their own business, not ours. We
do not come into the proposition at all
unless the young woman makes objection to the operation, or they get so
loving that they attract a crowd, or
obstruct the street by'halting In the
middle of the pavement while they do
a little billing and cooing."
"Suppose they did attract a crowd
or cause a stoppage In traffic by stopping In the street to kiss and hug, what
would you charge them with?"
"Disorderly conduct," was the reply.
"It would come under that head. All
matters which cause street obstruction
come under that title."
"But who would you arrest? If a
crowd chooses to gather 'because a
man Is doing something that he has a
right to do, why should he be made to
"Oh, well, the law is quite clear on
that point," was the answer. "That
which causes the obstruction must
stand the responsibility. In Montreal
a year ago a shopkeeper was fined because the marriage of a couple in his
store window attracted a crowd which
interfered with street traffic."
"Then a newspaper which bulletins
election returns Is liable to prosecution?"
'Tea," said the deputy, "but we never prosecute. Everybody Is Interested
In election results, and no one raises
a protest at the obstruction; therefore
wo do not bother."
Deputy Chief Stark said that In the
parks of the city no one bothered with
the billing and cooing as long as propriety was not violated. He sold that
the Allan Gardens were the recognized
refuge of the .love-stck In Toronto,
though all the parks got their share.
"It Is amusing over In the Gardens
to watch the lads and lassies toting
the benches over Into the shade," he
"What would you do if a young man
and a girl walked down Yonge street
hugging and kissing each other?" I
asked Policeman Brown, who was on
duty at King and Yonge streets. Now
Brown Is a good-looking young fellow.
He smiled retrospectively before replying.
"I wouldn't do anything," he replied. "Why should I? It's their own
business. I'd let them hug all they
wanted to unless they 'attracted a
crowd, when I would probably tell
them to quit making a public exhibition of themselves."
"Have you any Instructions on the
"None. I guess that Is a matter left
to a man's discretion," was the answer. "If they got too broad I suppose
I would have to break up this love
Just then PoHceman Roberts came
up to relieve Brown, and the question
was put to him.
"They could do It to their hearts'
content for all of me," was his answer.
"Unless they were drunk and became
noisy over It and attracted a Jeering
crowd I would not worry. I have seen
a f��w couples go down the street hugging each other. I often see newly-
married couples wandering around
hand-in-hand, he looking Into her eyes
and she Into hls'n."
Over In Buffalo It Is a common thing
to see young people hugging and kissing In tho street squares near the
heart of the city. No one pays any
attention there. In Toronto such demonstrations of affection In public are
comparatively rare. One night I saw
a young woman pucker up her mouth
In tantalizing fashion at her escort,
who. swung on a strap above her. He
took the plunge without hesitation, and
the smack woke the passengers up.
But for the young woman's furious
blushing the passengers would not
have known who was the recipient of
suoh a vigorous buss.

"Honey, one of the most nutritious
and delicate of foods, should be eaten
more than it Is," said a cooking expert.
"Bought in the comb, it is bound to be
unadulterated, and this pure honey
will keep Its friends free from sore
throat and bronchial troubles. I have
not had a sore throat since six years
ago I took to eating honey. My doctor tells me he often recommends honey, with excellent results, for diseases
of the throat. Honey Is excellent to
use Instead of sugar for sweetening
cakes. It gives the cakes a most delightful flavor. It Is also excellent In
place of butter on hot biscuit, ou toast
and on buckwheat cakes. I know a
number of women who use honey as a
cosmetic. They apply It to the skin,
rub it In well, then wash It off with
hot water. The result is a finer textured complexion, a glowing color, a
young, fresb look."

Wayside Inns In Hungary generally
rejoice In very quaint titles. This one
was called the Dropperin and had tbe
usual sign outside���viz, a long pole
with a wooden ring and a gigantic
wine bottle suspended from it. The
system of keeping the scores is primitive, but practical. The regular customers and the Innkeeper each have a
bit of wood called rovas, with the
name of the person written on it, and
every liter of wine consumed is marked
by each making a notch on his respective bit of wood. When the score
Is paid off, both the rovas are burned.
