Slocan Lake People Promised
Better Service In
Near Future.
Tlie prospects lor a better boat service
on Slocan Lake are brighter now than
than they have been at any stage of the
fight which has been waged for the past
two months. This feeling is the outcome of an official visit made by Mr. D.
C. Coleman, dirieional superintendent
of the C.P.R., to the Slocan last Friday,
and now all leel satisfied tbat the daily
mail and boat service will shortly be
installed again.
When Mr. Coleman made his initial
trip through the district a month ago it
was ielt that owing to the hurried
nature of the tour but scant good would
be derived by the towns he visited.
Except in one er two instances the
people of the Slocan had no opportunity
to state their grievances to the new superintendent, and it was Ielt that that
Kootenav Lake Navigation Co. might
be considered, but they also provide for
mail service to other points than Kaslo.
What you would therefore seem to ask
is that an arrangement be made with
the Kootenay Lake Navigation Co. to
carry your mails. It is estimated tbat
payment made to this company at the
ordinary rate of 5 cents per mile, together with the necessary side services,
would involve a total annual expenditure ol -.1800. This company's boats
are now used for a service as far as
Club Landing. Deducting, therefore,
the amount now paid, the increased expenditure would be over .1500 per annum, practically all for the service to
Sandon, as the service to ICaslo appears
to be satisfactory."
As to  tbe latter thc  Kaslo Board of
Trade and the people of Kaslo generally
I   THE "GENERAL'S" SETTLERS.
They were four Englishmen, and all
being flat broke, an affinity existed; so
they sat on the C.P.R. depot swapping
confidences. Suid one: "Blimey, its
a bloody shyme to send Inglialiina.il aht
'ere to this (Sord-forsyken bloody 'oie."
" Yns," said a second, " My well-to-do
sister would be orfully cut up if she
knew I was in a bleedin' fix like this
" Is yer sister well orf ? " asked the
first. " Well, I don't mean ter sye as
'ow she rich, yer know ; but she's uiydo
a few quid cleaning windows at a college
in 'Ackney Dahns." Said the third:
"The Qovvyment ought lobe written
to abaht it. I corls it a bleeding hini-
pieition to bring emigrints owvor on

$100,000  for ten years over and above j ane Saturday,
what the other Provinces received. | Robert and Miss Maggie Cunning, ac-
This conceision Mr. MeBride considered '��� companied by .Mies M. Mclntyre, visit-
inadequate, and on the adoption of this ' ed New Denver Wednesday
resolution he withdrew from the confer*
have their own opinions, but they are donkey dropped dead in the Old Kent
with us in submitting that as the C.P. Road it upset the whole kerboodilum,

for taking it to Sandon, that the in-j shyme, an'I writ to General Hoove lo
auguration of a through mail over the j toll 'im sow, too." "I wbs in the
entire route would only bo tbe Eame as ! awmy," said the fourth. "Idown't
at present for the caniage of a leiser i mean the Salvytion Awmy; I mean the
amount, and that the side service would Riglars; and when I was drummed aht
also remain practically the same.
The Kaslo Board of Trade have gone
into tbe complex matter in a businesslike   manner,  and if Mr.  Lemicux is
nfle-nan's   acquaintance   with   local | ��Pen to be  co*-���--*��* they can show
ge
conditions would bo gleaned by conversing with the crews of the boat and
train and other minor local officials.
None were, therefore, greatly surprised
when the new bulletin was issued, but
the people of the Slocan were iu no way
mollified, and mass meetings were held
throughout the country at which the
action of the C.P.R. waa freely dis-
cuised. Petitions were forwarded to
the Postmaster General, to the Inspector of Railway Mail Service and Wm.
Wliyte, 2nd Vice-President of tlie
C.P.R., all of whom have replied at
length. Writing to the secretary of the
Sainton's Citizen's Committee, Mr.
Wliyte says: " We are always glad to do
anything to focus the attention of the
public upon any section of the country
that is served by our lines. . . I will
givo the matter my personal investigation, to see if it be possible that we
can stretch 'a point to satisfy your aspirations. I may say that the Sandon-
Nakusp service is one that is being
amended."
Mr. Coleman courteously telegraphed
last  Thursday  to   the  citizen's  committees at Sandon, Silverton and New-
Denver as follows: " Will be at Silver's
ton and New Denver tomorrow to look
into any complaints regarding our service," and when he arrived the following day be was met by Wm. Hunter,
M.P.P., W. Brandon aud H. G. Fisher,
who very ably presented the case for tho
district. Mr. Coleman expressed surprise at many things he was told, and
at the conclusion of the conference said
in part:
" You may rest assured we shall make
ti change, and thftvery shortly. We
have now under consideration the
scheme of continuing the present winter
service on the lake throughout tbo year.
I thought objection was made to the
barge being towed by tbe steamer carrying passengers, but I am glad to know
different."
Mr. Coleman was assured by the delegation that the people of tbe Slocau
would forego much to assist the company in tackling the ever-Increasing
freight problem, but they must be assured that when passengers embarked
for Nelson they would get through same
day.
The Review feels that much good will
���accrue from tbe heart to heart talk, and
it congratulates Mr. Coleman upon
taking a step which will gain for bim
the good will ot the people of the district.
The thanks of the citizens of Sandon
are extended to the Kaslo Board of
Trade for the stand they have taken in
the matter of securing a transference
of the contract for carrying mails be
ween Sandon and Nelson from the C.P.
Ry. to tbe G.N.Ry.
It would appear that tbe Hon. R.
Lcmieux has a misconception of facts
in the matter of cost of making tbe
transfer asked for. In his letter of thc
20th ult. directed to the secretary of
the Sandon Committee he eayi:
" If the C.P.R. boats only carried the
mails for Kaslo and Sandon, the question, ol  substituting the boats of the
him bow to expedite the arrival of mails
for this district at no increased cost to
the department. The letter has boon
forwarded, and it goes without saying
that Sandon to a man appreciates the
support of the Kaslo B. of T.
for stealin' nie pals boots, I "
But just then the Reco dinner bell
rang,  and tho soliloquy was cut short
with:
" Got any cbewin' bakker, Sam ? "
" Yus.   Owver.   Ketch."
The first number of Westward Ho!
is to hand. It is a monthly illustrated
journal of merit devoted to the advertising of British Columbia, which
should prove a welcome visitor to any
home. Its 70 pages are filled with
excellent matter devoted to Art, Literature, Criticismand Publicity, and tbey
abound with illustration! of a high
order. It ii printed in standard magazine size and is tlie first of its kind to be
printed in Britisli Columbia, When we
say tbat William Blakemore and Percy
F. Godenrath are fostering the new infant, British Columbians generally will
realize that a literary feast bas been
dished up.
" Sandon needs miners badly, and to
secure them our mine managers are
offering big wages, but tbat is no reason
why certain employment agencies at
Nelson should send along any old cockney
looking for a job. Four of these gentlemen arrived last Saturday, and in
conversation with one of them we learned that hia knowledge of mining was
gathered in a London " tuppeny tube,"
while another had worked in a sewer
for several months. The other two were
less experienced in " mining," but they
were prepared to tyke chawnces on the
reputations and advice of their ti Hi���
cums. These men all paid a dollar
apiece to the employmeut agent at
Nelson, which to our way of thinking is
little short of criminal.

Tho above missivo accompanied a
cheque with face value of tf21.50 over
and above our submitted account ior
printing and advertising, and it was so
unexpected and so unique an expression
of kindness, that we riio to express our  Federal
British Columbia may well feel satisfied with tho result ol the mission to
England of her Prime Minister. It has
its sequel in Mr. Winston Churchill's
statement in the IIouso of Commons
on June 18ih, and in the Bill for the readjustment of Federal subsidies to the
Canadian Provinces which is now before the British Pailiument. We may
indeed expect that this 'Imperial legislation will mark tho beginning of the
end of a difficulty between the Dominion and the Province, which bus been
tbe subji-ct, of keen political feeling. It
waa the supreme issue ln Hie recent
general election in British Columbia,
when Mr. MeBride was returned to
power by a largely increased majority.
The main facts of the situation can
be stated in a few sentences. At the
1908 Conference of Provincial Premiers
held at Ottawa the Dominion Government assented to a readjustment of the
allowances made to the Provinces out
of the Federal Treasury in view of the
heavy demands of tbe various services of
administration���loads, streets and
bridges, education administration of
justice, hospitals, charities, and so on.
The scheme as agreed upon between
the Dominion and Provincial Governments (British Columbia alone dissenting!, and now embodied in the Bill
before the Imperial Parliuient, grants
increases in the specific and per capita
subsidies   to    the   provinces
ence.   The sequel is found in bis present
mission in London,

ME, GOTT, AND TIIE C.P.R.
Pat Burns got very angry at Calgary
the other day, or it seems to us be
must bave beeu to cough up the following spasm: " If you closed down my
business tomorrow the country would
bave have nothing to eat and bo starving. I never squeezed a man yet, and
the reason I have all the business is I
pay the highest wages. I notice a tendency in this country to knock Gordon
& Ironsides, the Canadian Pacific Railway and Pat Burns. We three have
made this western country. It ia a
pity for the country's sake there are
not more Pat Burns' in it."
We havo the photograph of a man
named Clever grinning horribly when
reading the above. Pat Burns ran a
joint in Sandon and had it all his own
way until the other fellow butted into
the Slocan and put Pat locally and
literally on the hog. Strange, we have
never heard of Clever claiming he had
built the Slocan. Cold, cruel, remorseless words ! Desolation and hunger
will stalk hand in hand throughout the
west if Pat shuts shop. 0, terrible fate
for the west. Thank the Lord we have
a Clever.

Since he came to London, Mr. MeBride has had prolonged conferences
at tho Colonial Office, and especially
with the Under Secretary, Mr. Winston
Churchill, with results of thc highest
importance to his Province. In the
first place Mr. Churchill when introducing the Bill to the House of Commons, made it clear that while British
Ministers and tho British Parliament
do not know cn.ugh about tho relative
interests concerned to judge on which
side the merits of the claim lie, yet it
must not be assumed that in a case of
this kind hia Majesties Government
" will always be prepared necenarily to
accept the Federal point of view as
against tho Provincial pointof view."

Of this $215,000 to Britisli GolamMa
$100,000 is a special oTinual grant made
to British Columbia for 10 years on account of her exceptional claims.
Aa we say each of the Provinces was
a consenting party lo this arrangement
except alone British Columbia. At
Ottawa Mr.'MoBride stoutly maintained
���and the principle of his contention
found general support���thai the exceptional demands made upon his provinoo
called for exceptional favorable treatments. Thus he urged " the charges
against Custom and Excise revenues,
to which may properly bo added heavy
freight hills, arising out ol long distance
from centres of supply in the East, aro
several times greater than in other
Provinces, and thus to that extent lessen the ability to maintain the cost
of local administration." Moreover
"the responsibilities of population involved in the increase of population in
British Columbia, as will be shown are
several timet greater than elsewhere in
Canada liy reaion of a combination oi
disadvantageous conditions, mainly
physical in their nature. The contentions that increased subsidies to the
provinces to permit of their atill further
development would bring increased
revenues to the Dominion as a compensation apply wiih a prculiar force to
the particular case of British Columbia.
This province hns admittedly great
sources of wealib. Obviously, however,
owing to the physical obstacles to overcome, to make theso sources available
by development an expenditure very
much larger than in other provinces is
required! but, as Britisli Columbia has
in the past contributed, and in the future must continue to contribute, in an
excessive ratio to the Federal treasury
as compared with the rest of Canada,
io tbat Dominion for relatively increaied subsidies to thll Province will reap
a corresponding increase in revenue to
the Treasury and in benefits to trade
and industry." So run a part of the contention of British Columbia. Sir Wilfred Laurier and his colleagues in the
Dominion Cabinet were not prepared

hauling contract.

*���'    TIIE LEV I) .MARKET.
The lead market has recently been
keeping the operators and others connected therewith guessing as to what
would be the final outcome. For the
week ending June 8, load foil off $5.00
per ton from the prices ruling from
$80 to $75 the previous week. During
the suue week pig lead in ihe St. Louis
UlAri.,__ viciil tiuiu p,_T;'-i.    tu u.oo.     Tlila
is one of the biggi st declines in (he
market for this mo'al for years and
caused no end of speculation and alarm
among tlie larger producers of lhe district. Tho furor in tho dislrict wns
marked by a wide dillerence in the
method of meeting the cmditions on
many of the larger producers. Some
who had sold large quantit.ei accumulated for weeks sold the week previous
to the drop and likewise at the weakened
figures disposed of all they had produced during tho wiekof the decline,
in the belief Hint hnd wou'd still too
worse pi ices and at once. Others including some of the largest Webb Cily
producers preferred to hold their product and take chances on a better market, though admitted it was a gamble
as to what would developo, As prices
here aro gpvu'ned by the St. Louis
Price of pig lead and ns that aiticlo
seems capable of achieving acrobatic
honors of the highest ordei, the host
that could be said about the market
was thnt it provid-.d an inviting field for
nsplrihgprophets. Meantime producers
are uncomfortably uncertain ns to just
what they should do with their ore.
To sell at tho present figure may mean
the loss of thousands of dollars while lo
retain it may mean a loss of equal magnitude or tlie retention of it for an indefinite period. And the waiting public with a woman's curiosity wants lo
know Jwhat's doing.���Lead and Zinc

"1 beg your hrghuoss' jfardon," *mui-
mured Baldos, but he did not sheathe
his sword.
"He forced It upon me," cried Marlanx triumphantly. "You were witness to It all. I was a fool to let It go
as far as this. Put up your sword until another day���If that day ever comes
to you."
"He will have you shot for this,
Baldos," cried Beverly ln her terror.
Baldos laughed bitterly.
"Tied and blindfolded, too, your hlgbness, te prove thnt be is a brave man
and not a coward. It was short, but It
was sweet. Would that you had let
the play go on. There was a spice ln
It that made life worth living and death
worth the dying. Have you other commands for me, your highness?" His
manner was so cool and defiant that
���be felt the tears spring to her eyes.
"Only that you put up your sword
and end this miserable affair by going
to your���your room."
"It Is punishment enough. Tomorrow's execution can be no harder."
Marlanx had been thinking all this
time. Into his soul came the thrill of
triumph, the consciousness of a mighty
power. He saw the chance to benefit
by the sudden clash, and he was not
���low to seize It
"Never fear, my man," he said easily; "It won't be as bad as that I can
well afford to overlook your Indiscretion of tonight There will be no execution, as you call it This was an
affair between men, not between man
and the state. Our gracious referee is
to be our Judge. It Is for her to pardon and to condemn. It was very
pretty while it lasted, and you are too
good a swordsman to be shot. Go your
way, Baldos, and remember me as
Marlanx tbe man, not Marlanx the
general. As your superior officer, I
congratulate and commend you upon
the manner ln which you serve the
princess."
"You will always find me ready to
flgbt and to die for ber," said Baldos
gravely. "Do you think you can remember that. Count Marlanx?"
"I have an excellent memory," said
the count steadily. With a graceful
salute to Beverly, Baldos turned and
walked away ln tbe darkness.
"A perfect gentleman, Miss Calhoun,
but a wretched soldier," said Marlanx
grimly.
"He Is a hero," she said quietly, ���
great calmness coming over ber. "Do
you mean It when you say you are not
going to have hlm punished? He did
only what a mnn should do, and I
glory ln his folly."
"I may as well tell you point blank
tbat you alone can save him. He does
not deserve leniency. It ls ln my power and It ls my province to have him
utterly destroyed not only for this
night's work, but for other and better
reasons. I have positive proof that he
Is a spy. He knows I have this proof.
That is why he would have killed me
Just now. It Is for you to say whether
he shall meet the fate of n spy or go
unscathed. You have but to exchange
promises with me, and the estimable
guardsman goes free���but be goes from
Edelweiss forever. Today he met the
enemy's scouts ln the hills, as you
know quite well. Messages were exchanged  secretly,   which  you  do not
know, of course. Before another day
is gone I expect to see the results of
his treachery. There may be manifestations tonight. You do not believe
me, but wait and sec If I am not right.
He ls one of Gabriel's cleverest spies."
"I do not believe It. You ahall not
accuse him of such things," she cried.
"Besides, If be Is a spy why should
you Bhleld bim for my sake? Don't
you owe it to Graustark to expose"���
"Here ls the princess," said he serenely. "Your highness," addressing
Yetive, "Miss Calhoun has a note
which she refuses to let any one read
but you. Now, my dear young lady,
you may give It directly luto the hands
of her highness."
Beverly gave him a look of scorn,
but without a second's hesitation
placed the missive ln Yetive's hand.
The Iron Count's Jaw dropped, and he
moistened bis lips with bis tongue two
or three times. Something told him
that a valuable chance had gone.
"I shall be only too happy to have
jour highness read the result of my
first lesson In the Graustark language,"
���he said, smiling gayly upon the count
Two men ln uniform came rushing
up to the party manifestly excited. Saluting the general, both began to apeak
at once.
"One at a time," commanded the
count   "What Is It?"
Other officers of the guard and a few
noblemen from the castle came up,
out of breath.
"We bave discerned signal Ores In
the hills, your excellency," said one of
the men from the fort. "There Is a
circle of fires, and they mean something Important. For half an hour they
have been burning near the monastery;
also In the valley below and on the
mountains to tbe eouth."
There was an Instant of deathly silence, as If tbe bearers awaited a crash.
Marlanx looked steadily at Beverly's
(ace, and she saw the triumphant, accusing gleam In his eyes. Helplessly
she stared Into the crowd of faces.
Her eyes fell upon Baldos, who suddenly appeared In the background. His
face wore a hunted, Imploring look.
The next Instant he disappeared among
the shadows.

Imperative communis, and In the twinkling of nn eye the peaceful atmosphere was transformed Into tbe turbu
lent, exciting rush of activity. Tbe significance of the fires seen in the hills
could not be cheaply held. Instant action was demanded. The city was filled with thc commotion of alarm; the
army was brought to its feet with a
Jerk that startled eve.i* the most ambitious.
The first thing that Oeneral Marlanx
did was to Instruct Q*ttlnnox to set a
vigilant watch over Baldos. He was
not to be arrested, but it was understood that the surveillance should be
but little short of Incarceration. He
was found at the barracks shortly after
the report concerning the signal tires
aud told in plain words that General
Murlnnx had ordered a guard placed
over him for the I line being, pending
the result of an Investigation. Baldos
had confidently expected to be thrown
Into a dungeon for hi*-, affront. He did
not know that Greufall Lorry stood
firm In his conviction that Baldos was
no spy and wns supported by others in
high authority.
Marlanx was bottlln,*. bis wrath and
holding back his revenge for a dlstlcct
purpos*. Apart from Ihe existence of
a strong, healthy prejudice ln _he
guard's favor, what the* old general believed nud what he could, prove were
two distinct propositions, He was
crafty enough, however, t*> take advau-
tuge of a condition unVjiown to Beverly Calhoun, the Innovtat cause of all
his bitterness toward Ilaldos.
A��� bo liuntt-iieii from the council
chamber his eyes swept the crowd of
eager, excited woijifu In the grand hall.
From among tbem h�� picked Beverly
and advanced upon h-*r without regard
for Utile and consequence. Despite her
animation he was Ii**i-n enough to see
ftat she was soiely troubled. She did
not shrink from hint, as he had half
expected, but met Mm with bold disdain ln her eyes.
"This is the work of your champion,"
he said ln tones that did not reach ears
otjer than her owt.. "I prophesied It,
jvu must remember. Are yon satisfied
r.,*.v that you have been deceived In
Mm?"
"I have Implicit confidence ln him. I
suppose you have ordered his arrest?"
���he asked, with quiet scorn.
"He ls under surveillance, at my suggestion. For your sake, and yours
alone, I am giving him a chance. He is
your protege. You are responsible for
his conduct. To accuse him would be
to place you In an embarrassing position. Tbere ls a sickening rumor In
court circles that you hove more than
a merely kind and friendly Interest In
the rascal. If I believed that, Miss Calhoun, I fear my heart could uot be kind
to him, but I kuow It Is not true. Yon
have a loftier love to give. He Is a
clever scoundrel, and there Is no telling how much barm he has nlren ly
done to Gruustark. His every move Is
to he watched and reported tn mi* l<
wt__ be impossible for hlm to escape.
To save bim from the vengeance of the
army I am permitting bim to remain in
your service, ostensibly at least. His
hours of duty have been changed, however. Henceforth he is in tbe night
guard, from midnight till dawn. I am
telling you this, Miss Calhoun, because
I want you to know that in spite of all
the indignity I have sufferwi ���*",���- ~~
more to me than any other being in the
____>_. _���.����� io me even tban my loyalty to Graustark. Do me tbe honor and
Justice to remember this. I have suffered much for you. I am a rough,
hardened soldier, and you bave misconstrued my devotion. Forgive the
harsh words my passion may bave inspired. Farewell! I must off to undo
tbe damage we all lay at the door of
tbe man you and I are protecting."
He was too wise to give her tbe
chance to reply. A moment later he
was mounted and off for the eastern
gates, tbere to direct tbe movements of
Colonel Braze and his scouts. Beverly
flew at once to Yetive with her plea for
Baldos. She was confronted by a
rather sober faced sovereign. The
news of the hour was not comforting
to the princess and her ministers.
"You don't believe he Is a spy?" cried
Beverly, stopping Just Inside the door,
presuming selfishly that Baldos alone
was the cause for. worry. Sbe resolved
to tell Yetive of the conflict ln the
park.
"Dear me, Beverly, I am not thinking of him. We've discussed him Jointly and severally and every other way,
and he has been settled for the time
being. You are the only one who is
thinking of him, my dear child. We
have weightier things to annoy us."
"Goodness, how you talk! He isn't
annoying. Oh, forgive me, Yetive, for
I am the silliest, addle patedest goose
ln tbe kingdom! And you are so troubled. But do you know tbat he is being watched? They suspect him. So
did I at first; I'll admit It. But I
don't���now. Have you read the note
I gave to you out there?"
"Yes, dear. It's lust as I expected.
He has known from the beginning.
He knew when he caught Dagmar and
me spying behind that abominable
curtain. But don't worry me any longer about hlin, please. Wait here with
me until we have reports from the
troops. I shall not sleep until I know
what those fires meant. Forget Baldos
for an hour or two for my sake."
"You dear old princess; I'm au awful
brute, auro 'hough. I'll forget him forever for your sake. It won't be hard
either. He's Just n mere guard. Pooh!
He's no prince."
Whereupon, re-enforced by Mrs. An-
guish and the Countess Halfont, sbe
proceeded to devote herself to the task
of soothing and amusing the distressed
princess while the soldiers of Graustark ransacked the moonlit hills. The
night passed, and the next day was far
on Its way to sunset before the scouts
came ln with tidings. No trace of the
mysterious signalers bad been found.
The embers of the half dozen fires
were discovered, but their builders
were cone.   The search took in miles
r territory, but it wss unavailing.
Aot even a straggler was found. The
so called troupe of actors, around
whom suspicion centered, had been
swallowed by the capaoious solitude of
the hills. Riders from the frontier
posts to the south came ln with the
report that all was quiet In the threatened district. Dawsbergen was lying
quiescent, but with the readiness of a
skulking dog.
There was absolutely no solution to
the mystery connected with the fires
on the mountain sides. Baldos was
questioned privately and earnestly by
Lorry and Dangloss. His reply was
simple, but it furnished food for reflection and at the same time no little
relief to the troubled leaders.
"It ls my belief, Mr. Lorry, that the
fires were built by brigands and not
by your military foes. I have seen
these fires ln the north, near Axphaln,
and they were Invariably meant to establish communication between separated squads of robbers, all belonging
to one band. My friends and I on
more than oue occasion narrowly escaped disaster by prying luto tlie af-
fiiira of these signalers. I take It that
the squads buve been operating In the
south and were brought together last
night by means of the fires. Doubtless
they have some big project of their
own sort ou foot."
That night the city looked for a repetition ot tlie fires, but the mountains
were black from dusk till dawn. Word
reached the castle lute in tbe evening
from Ganlook Unit an Axphulnlan nobleman and bis followers would reach
Edelweiss the next day. The visit was
a friendly but an Important one. Tbe
nobleman wus no other than the young
Duke of Mlzrox, Intimate frleud of the
unfortunate Prluce Lorcnz who met
his death at the hand of Prince Gabriel and was tbe leader of tbe party
which opposed the vengeful plans of
Trlncess Volga. His arrival in Edelweiss was awaited with deep anxiety,
for It was suspected that his news
would be of the most Important char-
aotor.

Domestics and  Lady  Helps Combine
Forces   In  Trade   Union.
There is a great disturbance in the
drawing rooms of the good ladiea tl
Sew Zealand and Australia; domestic
���servants und lady-helps have combined forces in a trade union. The
union is the first of its kind under tne
Southern Cross, and marks the lateot
levelopment under the New Zealand
Conciliation and Arbitration act. It
it known as the Wellington Domestic
Workers' Union, and is already asking for an award.
The domestic servants' charter is
divided into provisions covering eight
classes of work. The following are
among the main features of the charter:
1. A week'a work to consist of aixty-
eight hours' labor, commencing each
morning ut 6.30, and cease on four
days a week at 7.30 p. m., with three
intervals of half an hour each for
meals and one hour interval in the
afternoon of each day.
2. On Thursdays work shall cease at
2 p. m.
3. On Sunday work to cease at 2 p.
m., but if required the servants to
prepare tea between 5.30 and 6.30 p.
m. on alternate Sundays. Two hours

There are several trades which provide men and women with good livings simply because they enjoy an exceptionally keen sense of smell. Scent-

FAILING EYESIGHT
AND TORPID LIVER.
Good Sight and Good Health Returned When

DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS
To persons wbo have not considered tbe relationship of eyesight to
general health this letter will prove
especially   interesting.
Mrs. A. R. Price, Nose Creek, Calgary, Alta., writes: "I write to tell
you how highly we think of Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, for they
are unsurpassed for torpid liver,
constipation and kidney troubles.
My husband derived great benefit
from Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
a couple of yenrs ago when be was
i.eling depressed nnd regularly out
of sorts. His eyesight was failing
and the lamplight hurt his eyes so
lie coulel not read at all anel had
..mde up his mind to see an oculist.
"I advised him to try Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills, thinking he wns
suffering from torpid liver; He did
io, and after using less than two
boxes his eyesight entirely returned
nnd ho felt quite well ngain. We
would never be without tiiese pills in
; the  house   and   I   cannot  speak  too
highly of them."
Dr. Chase's Kidne.-Liver Pills are
j marvellously prompt and certain as a
.cure for sluggish action of the liver.
i While awakening the liver they also
i regulate  the   bowels   and   invigorate

Perfidious Albion.
A remarkable anti-English story,
originally emanating from The Alleg-
meine Marine Correspondenz,' which
published it from a "reliable English
source," is now going the round oi
the German newspapers, which are
giving it prominence, and profess to
see in it a proof of insincerity of the
British proposal for the discussion of
the reduction  of armaments.
The Allegnieine Marine Correspondenz saya that three "Droodnuuglita"
are now bolng built at Armstrongs to
the order of the Argentine Government, and adds that the English piess
recently announced that Messrs Vick-
ers, Son, and Maxim are building a
giant battleship for the Brazilian Government. The correspondent asks
whence these South American states
get the money for this very considerable outlay, and point out that these
four ships just form a division, which
could be purchased by Great Britain
at the opportune moment.

It has juat come to light, aays The
London Daily News, that on Friday
afternoon last Sir Henry Campbell-
Hannerman waa cleverly interviewed
by two of the most militant leaders
of tbe suffragette campaign. The premier, who waa on his way to CanneB,
entered the dining-car of the train
for the purpose of taking tea', and sat
down at a table adjoining one ai
which were seated two ladies. The
latter promptly introduced themselves
as Mias Annie Kenney and Miss Mary
Gawthorpe, and a friendly discussion
ensued. Sir Henry expressed approv-
' al of the educational work of the Women's Social and Political Union, bul
went on to criticize ita methods. He
gave no hope that the Government
would bring in a bill enfranchizing

Presently, as often happens on ���
quiet country road, a fine marsupial,
disturbed by the approach of His Majesty's Royal Mail, came into viewj
aa he raised himself from the gross,
where he had been feeding, and looked towards the coach with an innocent inquiring air. The driver waa
ready with the corroboration of hia
"bald and unconvincing narrative,"
for, as he shouted loudly, "Nothing!

Life In Nigeria.
There are frequent reference in tha
report to the efforts to cope with
slavery in Nigeria. The trade in
slaves has entirely ceased in Sokoto,
b-.t in Banchi there was a reemdes-
conce of it, due to famine, the people
preferring to sell themselves as slaves
rather than starve as free men. Ten
years ago, it is recalled, the entire
Angass tribe sold themselves into
slavery, but when the famine is over
they take the first opportunity to desert. In the Province of Muri famine
gave a great impetus to the trade in
children, who were sold for food. Ono
grim incident is recorded. "Tbe canoes," says the report of Sir F. D.
Lugard to the Colonial Office, "travel
by night and are concealed by day.
One which was discovered in a backwater with 22 children on board, was
pushed out into midstream by the traders, and apparently purposely cap*
sized. The slave traders swam for the
bank, but one was held by the leg by
a crocodile, and captured; 12 children
were drowned."
Treating the Imagination
"Imagination hns a great deal to
do with some eases of sickness," said
a doctor in St. Joseph's Hospitul,
quoted in tlie Philadelphia Record.
There was a woman who used to
come here regularly complaining that
she had swallowed a pin .and that it
was stuck in her throat, hurting her
dreadfully. Week after week we assured her that we could Hnd no pin,
but still she came. At last we determined to satisfy her, so we told her
to open her mouth wide anel shut
her eyes. Then we placed a pin between a pair of long forceps and rnn
it down her thront. After fooling
around a while we drew it out and
declared that we had succeeded in
extracting tlie troublesome pin. Sbe
got up, declared tbat she felt better
and went away. I saw her later,
���ind she declnied thnt the pain in
her throat bad entirely disappeared. '

a soft hat, as It gradually removes the
fine surface originally on the hat. The
worst effect, however, is tbe wearing
away of tbe band and binding by such
rough usage. The effect ls more
quickly shown on the best grades of
I bands und binding. A fine hair brush,
' one of curved shape, made especially
to use under the curl of the hat, is
good. Best of all, however, ls a thick
piece of woolen cloth. Such pieces are
now made ln tbe form of pads, with
a strap across the back, so that they

A   RHEUMATIC   WRECK
After Hospital  Treatment  Failed  Dr.
Williams'   Pink  Pills Cured  Him
"I suffered the greatest agony
from rheumatism. Leading physicians prescribed many medicines,
but with unsatisfactory results. 1
was compelled to go to an hospital,
but even the treatment there failed.
Then I took Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and today I am a well man."
These words were spoken by Clifford L. Forbes when interviewed at
his home in Port Maitland, N.S.
Mr. Forbes is a fisherman and had
always been very healthy, until some
three years ago while fishing off
Newfoundland he was seized with a
very severe attack of rheumatism.
In his own words he says: "1 was
fishing on the Grand Banks in the
spring of 1903 when I was stricken
with rheumatism. I could not work
or sleep, and the pain was almost
unbearable. My case became so
serious that I had to be landed, and
for weeks I lay in a Cape Breton
hospital as helpless as a cripple.
The hospital doctors prescribed different remedies, but they did not
cure me. I then left the hospital
and was taken home with rheumatism apparently completely fastened
upon me. Day and night I suffered.
Nothing I did for the trouble seemed
to help me and I became despondent
and downhearted. Then a friend
advised me to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. I was skeptical, hut my
friend praised the pills so highly
that I determined to try them, with
the result you see today. I am
fully cured and have not sine
had even a twinge of that dreaded
affliction. I cannot say too much in
favor of Dr. Wlliams' Pink Pills and
1 urge all rheumatic sufferers to try
them."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured Mr.
Forbes because they struck straight
at the root and cause of his crippling rheumatism. They don't act on
the mere sypmtoms like ordinary
medicine. They don't act on the
bowels. They do only one thing, but
they do it well���they actually make
new blood. In that way they root
out all common blood diseases like
anaemia, headaches and backaches,
rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia and
the secret ailments of girls and women, who suffer unspeakably when
the richness and regularity of their
blood becomes disturbed. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by all
dealers in medicine, or sent by mail
at BO cents a box or six boxes for
$2.50. bv -writing The Dr. Williams
Medicine  Co.,  Brockville,  Ont.

"TAPPING"   STEEL
The Way Manufacturers Conceal Defects In the Casting,
It might very naturally have been
thought that If there was oue trade
which could he saiJ to be free from
trickery anil fakllH. Il was that of steel
manufacture. The mere fact that steel
Is synonymous with streustU would
seem to bear out tills view. And yet
methods ure soinetiuies adopted In the
making of steel which once again Illustrate the saying ihat there are tricks
tn every trade.
At the same time it must be admitted that some of these tricks when carried out do not necessarily mean a
lessening in the soundness and quality
of the material. For Instance, It sometimes hapnens that in casting a piece
of steel what Is known as a "blowhole" occurs. Often this is not noticed*
until the steel has been cut and trimmed for the required purpose. Iu such
a case the hole is usually "tapped" and
a well fitting screw Inserted, the head
of the latter being filed off so closely
to the metal that it needs an expert
eye to detect nny unusual feature.
This is a trick which makes no difference in the strength of the metal and,
consequently is quite harmless.
Sometimes, however, a crack appears in a piece of metal which it Is
Impossible to remedy by tlie usual expedients of hammering and rolling.
The careful manufacturer will put the
piece on one side and make a fresh
casting, for if such a piece of metal
were used as a crank shaft, for in-,
stance, it might split at a time of extra
strain and so bring untold disaster.
On the other hand, the manufacturer may decide that he cannot afford to
throw the faulty casting ou one side,
and ln order to cover the defect It ls
put in the open air to rust The weather will most likely be found to have
filled the crack by the time the casting ls required, and no one outside thc
foundry will have known of its existence until perhaps it causes a vessel to
become disabled. And, as it ls almost
impossible to tell afterward how the
crack originated, the maker is qnite
seenre from blame.
One of the most sensational scandals
which have agitated tbe engineering
world for some years past came to
light not long ago ln connection with
the building of a great battleship.
After a trial trip she was found to be
Bomewhat leaky, and an examination
of some of the plates forming the side
of the vessel revealed the startling fact
that the rivets had been put In the
holes cold and simply calked.
When a ship's plates are riveted together, it is usual not only of course to
drive the rivets In red hot, but also to
calk them over with a special composition as an extra caution against leakage. In tbe case mentioned the builder was working under contract and ln
order to save time resorted to the trick
described. The result was that the
strain on the plates quickly loosened
the calking, and some of the rivets
actually dropped out of the holes.���

Senate Gavel Handleless.
It Is an odd fact that the gavel used
by the presiding officer of the senate
has no handle, like tbat used by the
speaker of the house. It ls an ivory
contrivance, modestly ornamented, of
cylindrical shape and about four Inches
long. In wielding it the vice president
bas to hold tbe gavel in his band as If
it were a amah hammer without a handle. How the custom originated of
providing the vice president with a
handleless gavel ls not known, though
the oldest senate attache cannot remember when it was otherwise, just as
the oldest senate attache cannot remember when the gold snuffbox that
occupies its ancient niche at the right
of the vice president's raised desk was
not dutifully filled every morning, although no statesman now patronizes
that once popular box for a gentle
���neeze.
Barbarians and Perfumes.
Though perfume may be the outcome
of civilization aud more lavishly used
by nations well to the front in manners and polish, there are Instances of
people of great demoralization who
use It in some of their horrible customs. Tbe fetich men of Ashantl supply an illustration of this, who, for the
benefit of young soldiers, concoct a
mixture of blood, of human hearts and
of fragrant herbs, and Bettany, quoting from Beecham, says, "All who have
never before killed an enemy ln battle
eat of the preparation, it being believed that if they did not their energy
would be secretly wasted by the haunting Bplrlts of deceased foes."
A Bad Practice.

The increase in Japan is greater in
the case of females, the figures for the
fair sex being 16 per cent., while
those for the males are only 14 1-2.
Mr. Kure thinks that this is due to
the new method of education, and
tn the fact that modern conditions
bring women into the struggle for a
livelihood side by side with men.
As to the method of suicide hanging
is the most popular with men, drowning with women. More people kill
themselves in May, June, and July
than in ony other period.
Taking about 100,000 cases of suicide the causes were:
Lunacy, nbout 30,000 males and 20,-

Lady Henry Somerset.
Lady Henry Somerset, whose fame
as a worker and speaker in temperance and charitable causes has spread
throughout Europe and America, is
retiring from public life. She announces that after this spring she
will spoak no more in public, but
will carry on her homes at Duxhurst,
whore she will continue to live.
An unhappy marriage led to a separation from her husband, and Lady
Henry retired to live a quiet life at
Reigate Priory. There she determined
to give herself to social and religious
work.
Her first public meeting was a little gathering of villagers from her
I.MBtnor estate, to whom she Bpoke a
lew earnest words for temperance,
signing the pledge in their presence.
Practice has sin_e made her one of
the most accomplished platform

her at Duxhurst, in Surrey, is the
sjioneer institution of its kind. Women of all classes suffering from alcoholism find there in a pleasant countryside homes where, amongst workrooms and gardens, poultry yards and
dairies, they can forget the old influences which have dragged tliem
down.
It Is to the honor of the foundress

sometimes sell Gordon setters, my

the blandest and most gentlemanly
tone the cabman stated that might
be true, but still he had he advantage he thought on the point of education. He had been at a university
and could speak several languages,
���among others Italian, which he happened to know Lord Rosslyn could
not speak. An Italian count who had
once been a friend of his was staying
in London and wanted a brace of Gordon setters. It proved quite correct.

Why Glasses Clink
In answer to a correspondent who
asks, "Will you finally settle the
question why glasses are clinked
when people drink a toast in wine?"
a Berlin paper says: "Your question should have included beer. The
ancient form is observed with thut
beverage as well as with wine. TJiere
are many versions, hut- the most logical is the one which is based on
the supposition that a good drink is
so worthy of respect thnt in drinking it all one's senses should be employed. One sees the liquid, tastes
it, smells its fragrance, feels its effect, and the glasses are clinked so
that the sense of hearing may also
have a share in the pleasure."
An English Description of the Joys of
Being His Majesty's Quest
The recent visit of John  Burns to
1 Windsor castle  at  the  invitation of
King Edward was unique, inasmuch as
I tbe president of the local government
I board ls probably the only labor repre*-
seutative who has been honored with
an invitation to dine and sleep at the
royal residence by the reigning sovereign of the country, says London Tit-
Bits.
It mnst have been a curious experience for one who was obliged to commence the struggle* for a livelihood at
ten years of age to be saluted by sentries ns the guest of the king and to
be relieved of even his hand bag by a
royal footmnn.
Any one, however, who is invited to
dine with their majesties Is waited upon in practically the same manner as
the king and queen would be themselves. If a large party from Lou-
don nre nsked to spend the night at
Windsor castle, n special trulu is provided, nnd royal servants attend In
order to wnlt upon the guests, lu the
case of Mr. Burns a special carriage
was reserved for hlm, and n 1'losod carriage, druwn by a pnir of horses In
charge of n postilion, met him at Windsor.
While of course the ordinary rules of
royal etiquette are observed, there ls
always an absence of rigid formality
when commoners dine with the king.
His majesty acts the part of genial
host to perfection and with his usual
tact never fails to put his guests quite
at ease.
During the after dinner smoke ho
throws off all reserve and Jokes aud
chats with his guests just as an ordinary Individual. Their majesties usually retire from the company about 10
or 11 o'clock, although that does not
mean that the guests must do likewise. They may please themselves ln
exactly the same way as If they wore
at home. That their movements are
ln nowise restricted by any form of
etiquette U shown by tbe fact that
Mr. Burns the morning following his
visit to Windsor castle was up at 6
and was looking round the grounds between 7 and 8
Their majesties seldom breakfast
with their guests. Sometimes they
give their farewell greeting the previous evening if the guest is leaving thc
following morning. Usually, however,
both the king and queen say goodby
to any one who has been staying at
the castle jest before the guest leaves.

Wolves Are Expensive.
Vernon Bailey of the forest reserve
bureau at Washington, who has been
making an investigation of the ravages
of wolves on tbe ranches of the southwest, reports that In a certain part of
Kew Meilco he learned tbat a moderate estimate of the stock killed by four
wolves of which he got trace vras a
yearling cow or a calf every thr��e
days or approximately 100 head of cattle to each wolf. "Counting al) as
calves," says Mr. Bailey, "at the low
rate of $10 a head, eaeh wolf would at
this rate cost tlie ranchmen $1,000 u
year. This estimate of $4,000 for the
four wolves leaves out of consideration
the five to ten hungry offspring of each
pair, which begin to kill stock for
themselves ln the fall and continue to
do so as long as they live."

TO SAVE TIMBER WOODS.
Old  Settler's   Method  cf  Solving  Re
forestry  Question.
The subject of re-foresting cut-ovoi
land is becoming one of the most important that can be discussed in Ontario, and it is attracting increasing
attention. An Old Settler who has
given this matter considerable ntte.i
J****-  ���"rites- For many   years  past  I
have  been  trying u>  im.,....... _*._,
authorities the fact that tha question
of re-forestry is simply a matter of
burning all the evergreen brush and
tops cut in the process of getting out
logs and lumber. There have been
two chief obstacles in the way of accomplishing this object. The first is
that I have neither time, eloquence
nor literary ability to handle the most
important subject of the day. The
other, and the principal one, is that
every man connected with the lumber business, from the millionaire
limit-owners down to the cook's mate
in a lumber camp, ridicules the idea.
The fact that tens of thousands ol
acres of land, practically worthless
fer agricultural purposes, but specially adapted to supply the world with
pine, hemlock and spruce, nre now n
bare and barren waste, owing to simple negligence and greed, is of no importance whatever to these men. It
would take two more men in every
gang of log-makers to burn the brush
as it was cut. This would add from
10 to 15 per cent, to the cost of getting out logs, and what is the interest of the next generation, or, for that
matter, of the present owners ten or
twelve years hence, to an extra present cost of 10 per cent?
Lumbermen  Not Wholly Responsible.
It may be quite true that the lumbermen nre not solely responsible for
the waste I have referred to. If the
late Ontario Government, when tho
price of lumber advanced, had insisted on clean work in the woods, instead of raising the dues on each
thousand of lumber, millions of dollars' worth of lumber might have been
saved. It would hardly be fair, however, to blame either the late or the
present Government for not doing a
thing that they could not be supposed
to know anything about, and which,
so far as I know, was only advocated
by one man in the province, but there
is' now an opportunity such as may
not occur again, for the present Government* to try the experiment.
Try It In Algonquin Park.
The Algonquin Park consists of a
large block of land, now mostly in a
state of nature. Part, or perhaps the
whole of it may be under license, but
the Government has power to arrange
that, and to do so without injuriously
affecting the right of the first holders,
if any.
Let the licenses be granted subject
to the condition that no brush shall
be left on  the ground,  and  give the
only practical nnd common sense sys-
I tern of re-forestry n fair chance.
In tlie meantime allow me to repeat
i for the hundredth time, that the On-
i tario woods will re-forest themselves
if you do not interfere with them,
nnd thnt an additional expenditure ol
nbout 75 cents per thousand feet board
measure in burning brush and limbs
wotild do away with nine-tenths of
the damage to forests by fire. And
lastly,'that burning the brush nnd
limbs, especially of evergreen timber,
is all there is of the re-forestry question.

The proposed legislation through
the Dominion Parliament for the regulation of the manufacture and tale
of patent or proprietary medicines is
of the utmost importance, and it il
reoeiving a great deal of attention,
not only by the proprietary medicine
manufacturers, but also by the leading
doctors and druggists. Every manufacturer of reliable and high class
remedies welcomes the bill as a step
i in the right direction. The discussion
j haa brought out the fact that the best
fhysicians in Canada and on the oon-
( inent approve of and prescribe Pay*
ohine in cases of the most diffioult
, charaoter. In a recent instance of
i very serious throat and lung trouble
the patient had been using Psychine.
Two leading United States specialists
were consulted, in addition to two
eminent Canadian physicians. Upon
learning what the patient was using,
a sample of Psychine was taken and
analysed, with the result that the
physioians advised its continuance.
They prescribed no other medicine bat
Psychine, with the result that the patient has fully recovered and is a
splendid walking and talking advertisement for the wonderful curative
power of a remedy that will "stand
up" before the keenest professional
oritioism and analysis. As a builder
up of the system and restorer of all
wasted conditions, Psychine has no
equal, and the best and most earnest
physicians recognise this fact.
"At the age ol IS my lungs wsre ln a terrible
state. I had la grippe tho year before; It settle*

I had a con-raltatton of dooton, and ther said they
oould do nothing mora tor me. Then I auurted to
use P��-chine, f took the medicine lor more than
a year. It certainly did wondert tor me. I em

Psychine, pronounced Si-keen, is ths
greatest of tonics, building up the system, increasing the appetite, purifying the blood, aids digestion, and sets
