3. A. Macdonald will never forget his
Visit to the Slocan. Whatever the results of the struggle of Saturday next
will be, it will be indellibly engraved
on his memory that a Liberal crowd at
a Liberal meCing at New Denver, rose
en mass and cheered lo tho echo, Wm.
Hunter and Hon. K. MeBride. This
unexpected outburst waa no contra
demonstration. It was a spontaneous
outburst of public sympathy from both
Grits and Tories for the man who, it is
recognised, will best servo the interests
of the Slocan, irrespective of politics.
Gallantly Mr. J. A. Macdonald smiled
graciously on the sea of faces, for he
knew that as much as they respected
him aa leader of the party to which they
belonged, they had decided to support
the strongest candidate and albeit the
choice of the people.
Mr. J. C. Harris opened the proceedings as chairman, and briefly related
his opinion. A Mr. Thompson then
stook the platform and boosted tor Docksteader. The audienro suffered on in
silence. The climax came just as Rex.
Ii'eOonald, a Tory orator from NeLon,
wne about to speak. Rising suddenly
from the body of the hall, an enthusiastic Libeial raised his hand and called for
three cheers fu* Hunter. The denouement was sud lcn and startling. The
uHielieiiee arose as one mau and roared
their good wishers, and even " the ranks
of Tuscany cjuld sources* forbear to
cheer." Without interruption, the
meeting then went on, ami J. A. Macdonald delivered a spec h hinting an
hour. His remarks were of the stereotyped campaign kind which he has
gained so bad a reputation for throughout his-stumping tour. His points fell
on baircn ground. The electors of
(ho Slocan are wise enough to do.their
own thinking. He icalizcd that before
he had spoken five minutes, but he
valiantly kept up his tirade. The audience gave him a most practical
answer, by rising at the conclusion of
his speech, and again cheering Hon. R.
Mi-Itride and the conservative oandidate,
Win. Hunter.
J. A. Macdonald and R. F. (ire-ii met
on tho public platform at Kaslo last
Monday night, and the result was the
inevitable extermination of the big
lawyer man with nothing but wot
powder and slanderous hints. To the
satisfaction of the large audience Kaslo's
late member nailed the Vancouver
World's latest lie, and literally wiped
the floor with the Liberal's champion
traducer. Like a nun with a four Hush,
the enemy of labor drew to the Kaicn-
Islund-Mrs.-Jimmic-Aiidersoii bugaboo,
but it was chilli's play for the late
Chief Commissioner of Lands end Works
to dispose of his adversary.. Point after
point he 'made which laisud the enthusiasm of his supporters and antagonist* to a high pitch. Macdonald is
���sorry he went to Kaslo. The Conservatives are greatly obliged for his condescension and timely assistance. *
Perhaps the limit fooled man in the
country will he Archibald Hone I lock-
���leader on Saturday night next: Nobody is taking him seriously, and surpassed giggles do not have the effect of
daunting his zeal and cock-a-doodle-doo
confidence, Archie will go down to
posterity as a brave mau although some
peoplo fancy his bravery borders on the
Docksteader has been foisted on us
by a syndicate of Nelson politicians who
desire to get strings on the Slocan tu
pull as they desire. Yinir is another
poor unfortunate. Kdltor Deane of the
Nelson bladder desired the nomination
for hogtown in the worst kind of way.
He didn't get it. ��� The columns of his
paper have not yet been thrown open
to the advantage of Dr. Hall, the
Liberal candidate. The reasons are
obvious. That's Deansey; that's his
jyliticn. He and his colleagues hope to
��� Wirow the net out and secure Ymir aud
the Slocan.   We shall nee.
The slau that Mclnnes gave labor
while at Ronslanri a few nights ago is
having a telling effect all over.the Province. ' Midlines being tbe mouthpiece of
the Liberal party, his Utterances can
well'be taken as the attitude of every
J.jlie*riil candidate in the .province.
According to him. the Liberals want to
In* independent of the Labor or Socialist
element. In view of this, how can any
Liberal candidate expect to receive the
votes of the working men ? ���       '���*���'�����%.
The Nelson News has strings on Mac-
donald's travelling scribe, for wherever
he goes he works the wires ad extremiim.
The hot-air he peddles to the Nelson
Howler is so ridiculous that we are
tempted to discredit the rubbish.
Whilst hero ho kept the wires hot, nnd
among other stories he forwarded was
the fatal accident to a man in a mine
near Ainsworth. Tho News has it
" Man Killed at Sandon." The article
also wired which appeared under the
caption of " Macdonalds Private Car "
was a puerile attempt at cheap heroics.
" Macdonald missed train connection."
Rubbish I There wero no train connections to make. " Macdonald walked
the ties to Throe Forks." Wonderful!
A three and a half mile stroll on an
excellent track. A good conservative
here offered to hitch up his team and
drive him elown. He declined becauge
he urged the stroll would do him good.
"Macdonald was carried to new Denver
on a palace band-car in the face of a
howling snowetorm." Rotten! The
snowstorm was purely imaginary.
"The meeting here iu Deicksteader's interests wns a great success." Now,
wouldn't that jar vou?
What do the decent Liberals of British Columbia   think of the  situation T
The  managers of  the   party  have sur-
tendered to till! Ottawa machine.   The
machine  has   imposed upon   them the
leadership   of   a   discredited   and  dis-1
graced political adVOIlttlier, who hns ah-'
solutel\*non|lieri|iialificationi for leader*:
ship than thnt he  ii  *'nn   expert"   as!
" a liar and a slandvrcr."
The quotes are not on IS, They are the'
testimonial of ths Liberal Toronto Globe i
to \V. W. II. Mclnnes, nrd WO suppose |
the Globe shujild. .know. something !
about it. _.
As illustrating the general coiirensti"
of opinion M to Doiksteader's chances'
next Saturday, a well-known authority!
made the break on Tuc day that he
conld'nt believe otherwise than that
two of ihe gentlemen whoso names are
on Docksteader's nomination paper
would vote for Hunter, It's a cold, cold
world, and poor .Archies will understand
the moaning of the term " cold decked"
in a few 'tours.
All the talk in the world will not alter
the opinion formed as to the outcome in
this riding. Hunter is tho man unquestionably. The fight now lies between him and Davidson, and the
people realiza that the Socialist candidate is playing a losing game. The
Slocan needs a representative whose
every interest ii bound up in the future
prosperity of the Slocan. This talk of
distress in New York and London does
not affect the Slocan one iota. We have
troubles of our own. Mr. Davidson, the
Socialist candidate, is a man of conviction, but to say the lefst, wc belicvo
Iuh convictions are far ahead of the
timeB iii this country. It ia up to every
man to think (or himself. Hunter is a
man who has proved himself a friend of
labor ou many occasions. The money
he has made for a competence was
earned by1 the sweat of his brow. His
investments in this country arc our investment*. Unless the Slocan goes
ahead, his returns will be nit; the same
cau be said of every man who has anv
��� e, ����� * .1, ��� *
interest in the couiitry. Hu admittedly
knows the! nee-ds -oft'the Slocan better
than any man. Ho will devote his energies to the upbuilding of our staple
Industry to get action on his own money
invested. If he succeeds he helps us all
Hy protecting his own interests, he pto-
tcciji ours. By fostering his private
interests he fosters ours. Wc aro all in
the'same boat. The Slocan is being
depleted of Its p^iflc ���JWy dav because
capital will not Come iirto'deVciop our
properties. Are we all to wa!k��.put
because capital has not conlidencc
enough to invest in a country whose
ligure head is a Socialist politician ?
A man is no enemy of; labor when ho
disavows Socialism. Helmsthcgloiious
privilege of using his ' franchise to the
dictates of his conscience without let or
hindrance. No man dare say that
William Huntor will not protect the*
interests of the workers of the Slocan.
He is pledged to do that. Uc has done
that when no' pledge was,necessary.
Your vote in his favor Will he the
stepping stone to better terms for the
riding. He's out for that. Working
men, be just to the man who stood by
you in the dark days of strife. Bjw-k
him with every confidence,   .Vote:
Twin Cities Play
Good Hockey.
New Denver skinned Sandon on the
home ice on Friday, by five goals to
three. Hut the score docs not represent
the true aspect of the play, ns the game
should have concluded four all. In the
fust half it was 100 to 1 that the Lucerne boys pulled out winners, but the
second half bad the spectators guessing
until the final tootle of the siren sound-
eel to emit scrapping, from the preliminary lace oil" to the call of time there
wns uo semblance of rough play, and
the game must go on record as the most
gentlemanly exposition of tho popular
pastime which was ever witnessed in
the Silver City. The game was extremely fast and the exciting episodes
were not expected and therefore enjoyed
all the more. The spectators wero unbiassed, and any individual or combined
piny of the visiting seven wns applauded vigorously. The game opened sensationally. Thirty seconds from the
face-oil', Denver got through and put an
nee in the hole, and the pressure they
kept up for the next 15 minutes was
fruitful of three more goals. Shortly
after the whistle sounded the half time
Snndon was able to get through by the
aid of Langille and Cliffe, nnd although
it looked all over bar shouting far Denver, the crowd stayed to the finish. At
the resumption, a reversal of form was
noted. Sandon went out to bring down
the scare and win if they could. Langille at cover point was a team in himself. Time after time he eluded the
vigilance of the opposition and took the
puck to the mouth of the Lucerne goal,
but that custodian was a defending
unit par excellence, and he kept his
citadel intact for some time. Snndon
was going some and the Lucerne boys
Were forced to adopt defensive methods.
A beautiful lift by Langille from the
���15 yd. line whizzed past the Denver
go .lie and the crowd grew more than,
interested. In two minutes more Langille* was up again and another goal was
registered which the Lucerne custodian
had no show of stopping, Billy Cliffe
then showed some of his old tlmo vim
and by a nice piece of combined work
between him, Purley Wnffl and George
Hope the Denver goalie was sorely taxed
to save his net. Sandon kept up the
pressure, and six shots in less than HO
seconds we're cli verly saved by Kennedy.
Promt, ni.ee clear Cornwall got away
and easily bi-at the Sandon goalie nt
close quarters; rive to thrco. Not nt all
discouraged the Silver Citv hoys threw
themselves at the defence, ami it was
little short of marvellous that tho goal
remained safe. 'I ho call of time still
found Deliver on tlio-jdefcnsive.
Result: New Denver 5, Sandon t).
The features of; (he game were the
sterling sportsmanlike qualities of all
the players and Hie whirlwind play of
Stan. Langille.. This player is a new
acquisition to.'-the home team, nud
beyond question ha was the finest puck
chaser in the game*. Rutherford, whilst
not showy, Was solid nnd reliable, and
stubbornly contested every inch of the
ice as point player. Billy Chile played
like a man 'in.love; but he woke up at
the.linish arid rendered yeoman service.
George Moir should have been put on
the fence for vigorous slowness, and
Will Tattrie would have clone better if
the puck hnd been a eurlin' stane. For
lhe visiting team Cornwall was perhaps
the most conspicuous figure, but the
work of the cover and point men was
excellent. Kennedy, the Denver goal
keeper,^ 's�� the smartest custodl in we
have seen for many a day. His clears
were clean and faultless. At the conclusion of tha game rousing cheers were
given for the hoiire and winning teams,
and thv referee Norman Ilurlhurt, was
also honored iu the same way.
The following were the teams!

Nyw Denver turned.nut on  manse til
witness the return match on Monday
night. There was a record attendance,
lind When referee Fisher blew his whistle
'for the fun to commence there was
scarcely standing loom. Now Denver
immediately began toattack, and following up their tactics of the' previous
match, scored a'inost directly.
Sandon were kept on the defcnsiie for
some lime, und Denver speedily added
another iroul to their credit, but .when
the.whistle for.half lime was sounded,
tho score was 4-2 in favor of Sandon.
Recommencing n gre*at change cume
over the game. Sandon played the
game of their lives and made rings
n/ouiid their opponents. Goal after
giial was scored and when the whistle
���sounded lor the finish, the game stood
Sandon 10, New Denver 2. Of tbe play:
.els iu the Denver team no particular
mau shone above his fellows. The
backs division were perhaps the motet
conspicuous in the second half, but
without (titration the.Denver goalie was
the hardest worked hoy of the bunch.
It was a gentlemanly grime, mid the
spectators wire distinctly impurtiiil.
For the visiting team Cliffe and Bloom-
lield were  tbe -tar men,   Lungille was
too e-iosely tsetifced for bim to create
any furore. Conil)inittion won the
battle. AM refcre'etM��. Fisher gave
great satisfaction to both players and
spectators. At tbe conclusion the home
team tendered a banquet to tho Sandon
lxiya at the Newmarket Hotel.
The line up was as folio***:

The New Denver nxjflrey team desire
us to publicly express} their appreciation of the excellent spread put before
them by Wm. Bennett, pt the Reco
Hotel after the- hockey match last
Friday night. The funds of the local
hockey team were never more regally
drawn on.
Sam Watson, of Silverton, was ��ut
at tha Sandon goal to act. as umpire.
Rev. Rutherford was the goalie, and
therefore Bain's remarks at sevornl
exciting incidents will never be chronicled. Oh, iluar, oh dear; when Sam
afterwards learned that his goal-keeping friend was a parson he went searching for Captain Clifle wilh a wild eye
and a football itch in his right toot.
It is regrettable that in every country
there nre so many who pay such little
attention to the real issues before the
people in election contests. Sotn* ere
governed by political traditions, only
voting Grit, Tory or soino other party
simply liecauso their ancestors voted
that way, never considering that in
purely provinci.il matters these party
names have really no significance. They
wore adopted in Canada in the days of
the old Family Compact, when tho
Tories thought it was their first and
prime duty to support tho wishes
of the governors, who but too often paid
little or no regard to the wishes of the
people. The n formers of those days,
of whom the Grit party is the illegitimate oHVpring, labored tinder Haldwin
and Lnfontain lor Responsible Government. With that secured there is no
reality in the party name. '
Others agaiii vote the Conservative
ticket because they belong to the same
locf'-o or society, which of course is a

neighbors go  on  personal grounds or
because l,be*v   make something   immediately out of it, and this h most liep-
The ballot is a sacred thing and every
man entrusted with it should have n

that are appeal insj-for support and vote

Our advice to the electors in the present contest is to study well the effect in

Sell-confidciHO at times instils confidence in others, but vainglorious conceit crushes itself. Mr. J. A. Macdonald- -not tub J. A. Macdonald, but the
gentleman who is travelling with him
as hot-air artist and general flunkey���
wss proudly introducing the lawyer
man .with gubernatorial aspirations to
the Sandon buys as the "future
premier." But a Sandon boy " hae'd
his doots," und called the bluff.
" What's that you say ? " he remarked.
" The future premier, sir," answered
the blow hard.
���' When?"
" Next session ! "
.." Gotrany money ?���'.'
"Sure!"  ''And  the  contents of his
pocket were spread on the bar.
"That, all verg.t?"    .    ,
"Yep.". , . '    '���
" Can't Yer pull the "future premier's "ear?"
" Call yer." (decisively.) *
".Go yer. "(decisively.)
The money is up,, and Bob Cunning
is stake-holder. Of course a grit, who
was standing near, had to be funny
snd rcmnik that it was too bud to see
good Sandon money leaving the Country.
It wns after the Spend is t meeting on
Saturday night that the following conversation was hoard.!,), tho Reco Hotel:
"Ah!" said the Liberal mini, thoughtfully, "It's a good thing to have money."
" It's a fine thing to have imagination," said Che Socialist, its he shoved
out his chest.
" And it's not .an altogether contemptible thing to .Jinye tome practical
sense," chipped in a supp irter of "Bill"
To his honor the Mayor and City Aldermen, Sandon, B.C. ',
I have this day completed  the auditing  of the books of the City Clerk, and
find same absolutely correct, for the year 190(1.
Yours truly
-    Auditor.

(Cnqtinued From Last Week.)

were rebellious for a long time and that
she wondered how her gray dress
would look after she had slept In it
ull nigbt. She beard low singing as If
lu the distance, but nt'ter awhile tbe
stillness became so intense that its
pressure ulniost suffocated her. The
rush of the river grew louder nnd louder, und there" was n swishing sound
that died in her ears almost, as she wondered wbut It meant. Her last waking thoughts Avere of the "black patch"
poet.  Was he lying near the door?
She was awakened In the middle of
the night by tlie violent flapping of her
chamber window. Startled, she sat
bolt upright anil strained her eyes to
pierce the mysterious darkness.   Aunt
Fanny, en her hnd of grass, stirred
convulsively, bul did not awake. The ,
blackness ot tlie strange chamber wns
broken ever and imou by faint dashes '
of light from without, and she lived
through long minutes of terror before
It dawned upou her that a thunderstorm was brewing. The wind was
rising, aud the night seemed agog with
excitement, Beverly crept from her
..-ouch aud felt her way to the fluttering
doorway. Drawing aside the blanket,
she peered forth Into the night, her
heart jumping with terror. Her highness was very much ufrald of thunder
nud lightning.
The fire in the open had died down
until naught remained but a few glow-
lug embers.. These were blown Into
brilliancy by the wind, casting a steady
red light over the scene. There was
but one human figure in sight. Beside
the tire stood the tall wanderer. He
was listless and t-ontless, aud his arms
��� were folded across bis chest. Seemingly oblivious to the approach ef the
storm he stood staring into the heap of
ashes at his feet. His face was toward
her, every feature plainly distinguishable In the faint glow from the Are. To
her amazement the black patch was
missing from his eye, aud, what surprised her almost to the point of exclaiming aloud, there appeared to be
absolutely uo reason for its presence
there at uuy time. There was no mark
or blemish upou or about the eye. It
was as clear aud penetrating as Its
fellow, darkly gleaming lu the red glow
from below. Moreover, Beverly saw
that he was strikingly handsome���a
strong, manly face. The highly Imaginative southern girl's mind reverted
to tho first portraits of Napoleon she
lind seen.
Suddenly ho started, threw up bis
head and, looking up to the sky, uttered some strange words. Theu he strode
abruptly toward ber doorway. She
fell back breathless. He stopped just
outside, nnd she knew that he was
listening for sounds from within. After many minutes she stealthily looked
forth again. He wus stuudiug near the
fire, his buck toward her, looking off
Into the night.
The wind was growing stronger. The
breezes fauued tho night iuto a rush of
shivery coolness. Constant fllckerlugs
of lightning illuminated the forest,
transforming the treetops Into great
black waves. Tall reeds aloug the river bauk begau to bend their tops, to
swing themselves gently to und from
the wind. In the lowlands down from

with jack-o'-lanterns, merrily scampering about In the blackness, reminding her of the revelers lu a famous
Brockeu scene. Low moans grew out
of tho 'havoc, nud voices seemed to
speak In unintelligible whispers to the
agitated twigs und leaves. The secrets of the wind were lining spread
upou the records of the night. Tales
of muny climes pussed through the
e>urs of Nature.
From geutle undulations the marshland reeds swept Into lower dips,
danced wilder minuets, lushed each
ether with infatuated glee, mocking
the whistle of tho wind with uu angry
swish of their tail bodies. Around the
cornices of the Inn of the Hawk and

roared with the rumble of u million

As Beverly sunk buck from tlie crash
she saw him throw his arms aloft as
though Inviting tho elements to mass
themselves and their energy upon his
bead    She shrieked involuntarily, and
he heard tlie cry above the carnage.
Instantly his face waB turned In her
"Help! Help!" she cried. He bounded toward the swishing robes and
blankets, but his impulse had found a
rival lu the blust. I.Ike a flash the walls
of the guest chamber were whisked
away, scuttling oft* Into the night or
back luto the depths of the cavern.
With the deluge came tlie mau. From
among the stifling robes he "snatched
her up aud bote her away, she knew*
not whither.
AY nil storms be us pleasant
as fills' one:" Beverly heard
some one say with a merry
laugh. The next instant she
was placed soundly upon her feet. A
blinding flash of lightning revealed Hal
dos, the goat hunter, ul her side, while
a dozen shadowy figures were scram-
bllug to their feet in all corners of the
Hawk and Raven. Some one wus
clutching her by the dress at the knees.
She did not have to look down to know
that it was Auut Fanny.
."Goodness!" gasped Beverly, and
then it was pitch dark again. The man
at her side called out a command in his
own language and then turned his face
close to hers.
"Do uot be alarmed. We nre i|tiitc
sufe now. Tlie royal bedchamber bus
come to grief, however, I am sorry to
say. What a fool I was not to have
foreseen all this! The storm bus been
brewing since midnight." he was saying to her.
"Isn't it awful?" cried Beverly between n moan uud u shriek.
"They are trifles after oue gets used
to them," he said. "I have come to be
quite at home in the tempest. There
lire other thlugs much more annoying,
I assure your highness. We shall huve
lights In u moment." Even us be spoke
two or three lanterns began to flicker
"Be quiet, Auut Fanny, you ure uot
killed ut all." commanded Beverly
quite firmly.
"De house Is snub to blow down,
Miss���yo' highness," groaned the*trusty
maidservant. Beverly laughed bravely
but nervously with the tall goat hunter.
He at once set about making his guest
comfortable and secure from ihe effects of the tempest, which was now ut
its height. Her couch of cushions wus
dragged fur buck Into the cavern und
the rescued blankets, though drenched,
agalu became a screen.
"Do you imagine thut I'm going lu
there while this storm ruges?" Beverly
demnnded as the work progressed.
"Are you uot afraid of lightning?
Most young womeu are."
"That's the trouble. I am afraid of
It. I'd much rather stay out here where
there is company. Vou don't mind, do
you ?"
"l'uradlse cannot be spurned by one
who now feels its warmth for the first
time," he said gallantly. "Your fear is
my delight. Pray sit upon our throne.
It wus once a bumble carriage pull of

it is much more comfortable tbun some

"You are given to Irony, I fear," she
said, observing u peculiar smile on his
"I crave pardon, your highness," he
said humbly. "The heart of tbe goat
hunter Is more gentle thau his wit. 1
shall uot again forget thut you ure n
princess and I the veriest beggar."
"I didn't mean to hurt you!" she
cried iu cousternntlon, for she was a
very poor example of what a princess
is supposed to be.
"There Is no wound, your hlghuess,"
he quickly snld. With n mocking grace
that almost angered her he dropped to
his knee and motioned for her to be
seated. She sut dowu sueJCealy, clapping her hands to ber ears and shutting her eyes tightly. The crush of
thunder thut came nt that instant wus
the most fearful of all, and It wus a
full minute before she dared to lift her
lids again. He wns stuudiug before
her, und there .('us genuine compassion
lu his face. "It's terrible," he Bitid.
"Never before huve I seen such u

girl, for want of something more expressive.
"Your servuut hns crept Iuto your

sense of security If I"���

she cried. He forthwith threw himself upou the Hour of the cuve, a
graceful, respectful guurdlaa. Minutes
went by without u word from either.
The noise of the storm uiude It impossible to speuk aud be beurd. Scut-
tercd nbout the cuveru were his outstretched followers, doubtless asleep
once more In ull this turmoil. With
tbe first lull lu the war of the elements Beverly gave utterance to the
thought thut long bud been struggling
for release.
���Why do you wear thut horrid bluck
patch over your eye?" she asked, a
trifle timidly. He muttered a sharp
exclamation and chipped his hand to
his eye. For tbe first time since the
beginning of their strange acquaint*
anceshlp Beverly observed downright
confusion lu Ibis debonair knight of
tbe wilds.
"It bus has slipped off," be stammered, with a guilty grin. U!s merry
insolence was gone, his composure
with It. Beverly laughed with keen
enjoyment over tbe discomfiture of the

"You can't fool me!" she exclaimed,
shaking her linger ut bim in the most
unconventional way. "It was intended to be a disguise. There Is absolutely nothing the matter with your

He broke Into an honest laugh and
hastily moved the black patch across
his nose to tbe left eye.
"I was turned around In the darkness, that's all," he suld serenely. "It
belongs over the left eye, nnd I am
deeply grateful to you for discovering
the error."
*T don't ..pee nny especial reason why
you should wear ir nfter dark, do yon?
There Is no sunlight, I'm sure*."
"I am dazzled, nevertheless." he retorted.

The "simple unuemia of development" referred to by Dr. I.npponi is
of course that tired, languid condition' of young girls whose development to womanhood is tardy, und

worth reading, ns showing that, in the
opinion of those on the spot, Klon*

Lonely Labrador.
It keeps one busy these days to
remain abreast ot all that is going
on in this big country. The geography
of the West changes every week, but
Labrador, the great eastern unknown
land lying bsside Canada's front door,
is gradually awakening from the sleep
of centuries. Dr. Wilfred Grenfell
writes that the mission he represents
is adding a fourth hospital in Canadian Labrador, which will be 200 miles
from the nearest other hospital. In
this work Montreal, Halifax and Toronto have taken part, and the extension of the Government telegraph line
is of great assistance to these people
who have never had n medical man
among them before. Witli almost the
same mail The Quebec Telegraph
comes in with a report that owing to
some mismanagement of the mails
places from Natashquan eastward and
northward failed to get their lettere in
September, and will not now receive
them until the winter mail in January.

The   New  President.
Sir David Gill, F.H.S.. -who has
been nominated to succeed Prof. Ray
Lankester as president of the British
Association, has just returned from
South Africa, where for many years
he occupied the position of the King's
Astronomer ut the Cape of Good Hope,
says M.A.P. Sir David is one of tbe
greatest living' authorities on the
stars, and first be<-an his researches
nt the .��ierdeen Observatory. Later
on he directed the observatory of the
Earl of Crawford (then Lord Lindsay)
at Dunecht. und organized the expedition to Mauritius for the observation of the transit of Venus. He has
traveled extensively in the pursuit of
his studies, and has taken many wonderful photographs of the heavens. Indeed, it was he who first pointed out
the great possibilities of photography
for advancing astronomical knowledge.
Sir David ia a thorough all-round
scientist, is a member of numerous
important bodies, and has written
many standard works on his favorite
topics. In 1883 be "as elected o fellow of the Roval Society, and was
created a K.C.B. in 1900.
Ethics Versus Grocery Bill.
Curious pleas are sometimes made
before judges, and some judges have
a happy way of meeting these. There
was that judge who, being told that
a thief should be let off because she
was afflicted with a disease, Mepto-
niania, replied "that is a disease f am
sent here to cure, and I prescribe
thirty days on jnil diet." The other
day a somewhat new plen was set up
at King's Lynn, England, when Re*.
J. M. Barnes, B.A., a former Unitarian;
minister, was sued for a grocery bill.
He claimed that, having no settled income, the debt Bhould be cancelled.
Ethically, he could not regard himself
as a debtor until the State guaranteed
him employment in keeping with his
education. The judge said that i.e
would order Mr. Barnes, "ethical!,/
and witlr due regard to all interests,'
to pay ten shillings per month.
Sherlock Holmes a Myth.
Here is another blow to the ideals
of our childhood. Sir Howard Vincent,
who has been for twenty-six years
connected with the London police
force, is certain that detective genui-
ses of the Sherlock Holmes type exist
only in novels. He believes that the
regiilation requiring detectives to
first be policemen is essential, and l.e
does not think the rule keeps any
clever men out of the force. He believes that the success of the English
police is greater in proportion thau
that of any other police force. A New
York paper says it is a cause for astonishment to read that whereat In
New York there are often two murders in a day, in London, with its six
millions of people, there are never
more than fifteen to twenty murders
or attempted murders in a year.

Prince  Albert  Times.
One of the best known of tlie lis-
inu young men of western journalism
is the subject of this sketch. As a
journalist and printer of experience
lie hits a record that fe\y>Cttit equal.
He has his own excellence as printer
and editor to thank fur bis present
Mr, Laurie was born al Barrio, Ontario, about thirty years ago. the son
of Alexander Laurie, late of Haddington, Scotland, and Frances 1). Oiury,
of Barrie, Out. His first school years
were spent at Barrie, and the balance
of his education was acquired in Toronto. Though he lef school at tbe
ago of fourteen mid sjicnt a couple!
of years with the crockery firm of
Gowans, Kent A- Uo., lias still applied
himself to night studies and pushed
forward in this way. Being strongly
inclined to journalism in a practical
way, he wisely set himself the task
nf learning the art of printing, that
it. might be of benefit to him when
he should reach the higher branches
of the business.
After    serving    his    apprenticeship
with   the well known printing firm oi
Jas. Murray Co., he came west as fai
as Rat Portage in the mining boom
days, and obtained employment with
the News, under the late E. A. Chapman, as reporter and business   manager.    Later he was  associated  with
Mr.  F.  A.  Demoresi,  then publishei
of  the   Keewatin   Enterprise.    Aftei
this   he   was   for   three  yours   odito,
���if the  Fort Francis Times and    one
year with tlie Virdcn Advance.   WitJ
all these Mr. Laurie was occupying ,-
salaried  position,   but  in  November,
19(),r),  the opportunity of getting int.
the  business    for  himself    occurred
and  in  company  with  Mr. John   \\
Young, late of the Chatham Planet
acquired the    Prince    Albert    Time;
from the estate of the lute J. D. Mu
vepty, and tbey have made* the papei
one of the best in the west.
In July nf this year a very inter
csting event occurred at Regina
when Mr. Laurie met tlie lady of hi.
choice on her return from an cast
ern trip, and he was married to Mis.
Maude Beunesl, of Brandon.
Nothing except physical misfortune
could prevent Mr. Laurie from tafcini
a foremost plae*e among the journal
ists of the west, for bis ability is un
eloubted and he possesses that in
domitable courage which has char
ucterized so many of the journalist,
of the west, and has played sueh i
large part in the upbuilding of ihii
boundless country.

Hunting the Walrus.
Whalers began to turn their attention to walrus catching about the
year 1808. During the first part oi
every season there is but little op-
uoi-tunity to capture whales, tbey being within the limits of the icy barrier. As a result much of tbe whalers' time during July and August
was devoted to capturing walruses.
Men would be landed on the Alaska shore in June and left to watch
for the animals to haul up on the
beacli at certain points. According to
the e-overiimerit reports the walrus
must either como ashore or get on
the ice to sleep. When a herd is well
ashore one or two old bulls are gen-
orally left on watch.
The best shot among the hunters
now creeps up, and by a successful
rifle shot or two kills the guard.' Owing to their very defective hearing
the noise made by the rifle does not
wake them. Tho sun is then put
aside, and each hunter, armed with
.i sharp axi*. approaches tin* sleeping
animals, unci cuts the spines of as
many nf them as possible before the
utbeis become alarmed and stampede
for the water and escape.
The white hunters rarely make use
of anything but the two long, curved
tusks with which the animal is
equipped, and which average a bout-
five pounds to the* pair. If time permit*, however, the flesh is boiled, and
the oil saved. To many of the Eskimos, especially on the Arctic shore,
tin* walrus is almost a necessity of
life, ainl tin' devastation wrought
among the herds by the whalers has
been and is yet the cause of fearful
suffering and death to many of the
The flesh is food for ineh and dogs;
the oil also is used for food and for
lighting and beating the houses; the
skin when tanned and oiled makes a
durable cover for the large skin boats;
the intestines make waterproof clothing, window covers, and floats; the
tusks are used for lance or spear
points, or are carved into a great
variety of useful and ornamental objects, and the bones are used to make
heads for spears and for other purposes.
At the present time the Kuskoepiim
district is tbe only one ill ���which the
walrus is fairly common. In addition to hunting the walrus themselves the whalers also purchase from
the Eskimo's the tusks or ivory that
they have secured.
An   Experiment   Which   Show-   Ho*
Little We See Anyway.
Prof. Claparede, of a Swiss university recently asked a class ot 54 students eight simple questions concerning tbe rooms they dally visited at the
"Are the columns tu the vestibule
round or square?" "Is there a window facing the doorkeeper's box?" "Is
the celling in the large amphitheatre
plain or decorated?" and to on.
Forty-live of the Hfty-four atudenU
declared there was no window at all;
eight remembered that there was a
window, but each and all attributed a
wrong situation to it; one, more sincere than hts fellows, candidly owned
that he hud not the least Idea whether
there was a window or not. As regarda
the shape of the columns In the vestibule, only six answers were correct.
By way of continuing the expert-
meut, one day a man conspicuously
costumed suddenly burst Into the classroom, where he performed certain antics and uttered certain emphatlo
phrases prearranged with the professor. He was then thrust out of tho door
as If he had been aa ordinary unauthorized Intruder. Here was a scene,
says the Grand Magazine, eminently
calculated by reason of Its strangeness
and unexpectedness to Impress the
Imagination of the students.
A few days later, on some pretext or
other, Prof. Claparede asked his pupils
to describe to the best of their recollections the person and acts of the
masked man. Out of the 22 students
who had been present on the occasion
only four described the man accurately. The rest either admitted that their
recollection of the Bcene was absolutely at fault or gave such a description
that It might have applied to anybody
rather than the correct person.

You Must Agree in This;
That headache does not necessarily
mean there is anything wrong with
your bead! That being so, you must
mole to some other organ for the
trouble. Is the ache in the forehead,
and does it cease if you presR it ?
That is neuralgic headache. Is it on

A'bat the ��� doctors call "megrim."
lioth these forms arise from lack of
,ono in the system. Is your headache
general and accompanied by sickness

.cind oi headache is due to liver nnd
stomach disorder. Nine headaches in

.ire two methods of treatment. One
is to take headache powders. This is
eike trying to escape pain by taking

the organs which by their derangement are causing tbe trouble. That

Goes  to   Enc*land;   but   Considerable  Comes This  Way.
Originally the only means of sending a remittance in the form of nil
order payable on demand was through
the post office, but, owing to tin*, fact
that these orders cannot lie cashed
at all oilicos, the use of the express
money oielei* has become common.
At one time the express companies
were satisfied to curry Hie actual
Basil from one person to another; this
involved much risk, extra labor, and
consequently higher rates. Gradually, however, it dawned upon them
that it would be safer, cheaper, and
nuiii* convenient for everybody concerned, if, instead of requiring the remitter to put his money into an envelope and seal it, the agent .voult
take the money and give tlie remit
tor an order 011 the express agent at
destination, tu pay the money to tin
payee out of funds which bad accumulated in liUc manner at the destin
nt ion ollice. The same object wai
attained; the money was transmit
ted from the remitter to the payee
but under conditions which wen
much more satisfactory to the CUB
tinner and to tin; express company
Starting tints in a small way. thi
convenience of the plan soon realized
and the business increased, and, at-
it increased, improvements in tht
methods of handling it were made
from time tc) time, decreasing tin
cost and increasing the effectiveness,
till now the express money ordei
system lias become one of the great
est public conveniences ever clevis-
ed, and today there is no other system for transmitting money tho I
gives'more satisfactory service to si
many people, and at sueh small cost
The express companies claim that
by reason of their large number 0
agencies throughout Canada, and by
theii connections with the expresi
companies of the United States, thej
are able to give the; public a service
that no other institution, not evei
the government itself, 1ms been abb
to give. The express companies arc
represented at every railroad statiot
in Canada and the United States-at
hundreds of places' where there an
no banks, nor even post offices, am'
they thus serve thousands of people
win'- otherwise would not be served
a', all. In the larger towns and citie;
i.br. express companies have appoint

one may buy a money order or ge
ono cashed at times when it wottli
be impossible to get accommodatioi
anywhere else. The convenience tc
the public in purchasing and cashini
money orders is not the. only benefi
derived from the express companies
One feature ihat appeals to thos.
who have had the experience is tht
facility with which a refund may bi
obtained when an express order i
lost. Application for refund tuny b
made through any express agent ii
Canada and the United States. Tin
applications are dealt with promptly
and refund will be made to the re
uiittoi* or the amount paid to tin
payee, without extra charge, at an>
express office. Thus, if an order i.
issued in Toronto, and is lost by th.
remitter, or goes astray in the mails
(or falls into the wrong persons'
hands) the remitter may apply for 11
refund at Toronto, or, if he be il
some other part Of the country, he
may apply to an express agent wherever he is, and it will be arranged
and, if he is. traveling, the amount
may be paid to him through an express agent at still another part 0
the country, or, if he prefers, payment will be made to the original
payee, wherever lie may be.
Curiously enough; the Chinese are
as a class, the greatest remitters oi
money by this menus. The statement
wa ��� made by a prominent official ol

be did not believe there was a single

remit more or less regularly through
this channel. "Wherever we have an
agent anil 11 chink settler in tlie same
town our.instructions are to cultivate
him, for we know that, sooner in
later, he will be sending money,"
saiel lie. "From Canada alone the
Chinese remit at, least $1300,000, (Chinese silver dollars) every montli.      It
is all, or nearly all, sent via Hong

by letter as to whom payments are

Poles, Russians, and Italians also

any foreigners in Canada to receive

other hand there is considerably more
money sent out in this form from
Kngland to Canada than vice versa.

colors, some of it being of that mottled variety which is capable of receiving a high polish and thereafter
being especially valuable for building

is sueh that, large blocks' even up to
fifteen feet may be taken out in this
line,- the find being different from
many discoveries of marble where the
deposits are found to be commercially useless because of their fracturing
too easily.
