Meeting fo Pisco
Manager Camp&eii Hot With
Review, But Promises to
Try an;! Oo Better.
A large number uf indignant users 0!
the local electric   lighting system  responded to tbe  invitation of the Review
to be present at  a meeting to diecnis
the situation on  Saturday night, and It
was remarked afterwards that  in point
of  number,*-;  it  was the  beat attended
" indignation"  meeting   over   held  in
town.    Tlie meeting was  called by this
journal for the very  good reason tbut
so mnny complaints had  been received
at our office, aueut the inefficient light
eei vice rendered during the past three
months, that we concluded it would be
infinitely better  than raising strife in
these columns to meet in conclave and
endeavor, if we may bo allowed the expression, to secure  light on a 1 timing
Angus Mclnnes was voted to ths
chair and T. T. Rankine was elected
J: J. Atherton said it was up to bim
lo explain wby  the Review culled the
m eting.     All   were   acquainted   with
the circumstances whicli warranted the
indignation    of    light  users,   and   he
thought that all should come out in the
open and register their kick,   He deprecated any action  that would harass
the Company,  but felt that  common
courtesy should be extended the people
and a voluntary explanation as to any
cause   wliich  handicapped    the   Company's efforts should have ere this been
given.   Ho proposed that Mr. Campbell
as manager of the Company be asked
to given an explanation, which  was
seconded a d carrod.
C. F. Nelson concurred, and said Mr.
Campbell was on his way from tbe
power houso to attend this meeting,
In a good clear speech he told of tho
various reasons fur tlie inefficient light
accord:ng to the man on the street, and
voiced the feeling ef the meeting whan j
ho said an offlciul statement was  past J interests in that respect closet
forthcoming summer to obviate the
trouble, but that he had no faith in the
scheme. He outlined other troubles
and a possible Bolution, but snid that
the estimated cost lo procure good results was too high to be considered under existing revenue conditions.
He took objection to some remarks of
the local paper that tho public had not
been notified of tho lights being cut-off.
He suid he hnd put notices in the
"Tpost-oftico and on one of the poles, and
theso had been torn down, nnd said that
when the plant went out of commission
temporarilv.be hnl followed a system
of advertising the fact which bad always
been considered good enough.
Mr. Atherton said ho would not  re-
tmet 01111 iota of that which had   np*
piared in the Review.   IIo  maintained
Ihat the action of tucking a notice on a
telephone polo  did not sufficiently  appease an aggrieved  populace.     It was
110 way of doing business.   The poople
who paid for lights they were not getting were entitled  to ask fora reason.
If his printing machinery  broke down,
aid his paper was delayed in  publication, he felt tbat the  people who  paid
for his paper wore entitled to know  the
renson  of   the delay.     60    with    the
electric  light  or any  other business.
Dr. Broupe siid  Mr. Campbell  must
understand there wns a genuine grievance.   He saw things from his point of
view, but the consumers    saw things
according to theirs.   IIo said people who
paid for something they  were not getting were justified in protesting.
Mr. Campbell admitted   that of late
the lights hail not been up to the mark,
but  look   objection   to    Dr.   Blouse's
statement   that people paid  for more
than they got.    (Dr.  Brouse   here  declared lie alluded only to the  volume of
light).   He said that his register at the
power house showed that some persons
were using more light than they  paid
for.   Ho also added that no one teemed
disposed to help the company out  insofar as curtailing  the unnecessary em-*
ploymt-nt of lamps was concerned.    He
said that all over the town lamps wore
indiscriminately used which if turned
off would increase  the volnmo of light
elsewhere, where more urgently needed,
lie also complained that   the people
wero apathetic  as to tho pav ment  of
street light   dues,  but in   this blamed
himself for not looking after his  own

George Washington   could    not  lie.
We can    and do  when necessary,  but
when it rotne's to recommending Sunbeam lights  wecan follow in  Ihe footsteps of the Immortal George  without a
wobble, for we  have tried them   and
know.    What's more, we have no doubt
that if this illustrious statesman  were
alive ti-day, ho would join with  na in
proclaiming to the people of New   Denver  Ihat .Sunbeam lights are first in
candle-power,   first  in   efficiency and
first in economy.     Wo are not out with
our little   hatchet knocking any    one
else's light,  but a spirit of patriotism
prompts us to alvise our citizens that
the way to  life, liberty and pursuit of
happiness is to use tho Sunbeam light.

arrived Sunday from C.leator Moor,
England, lie came via Revelstoke and
consequently hud to tnke freight train
from Nakusp and walk in from Rosebery.   He arrived on nn off train day.
Dr. J. E. Brouse urged that the
meeting recommend summer and winter rates as against the flat into now
prevailing. Mr. Amos Thompson could
ni support such a recommendation, as
he thought that  all  could  meet   the
Replying to Dr. Brouse, he said he
could give no guarantee Ihat the lights
would bo better, but said no assurance
was nece Fary from him that bu would
try to get better results.
Messrs. H. N-lson. Williamson, C.
Aylvvin and Rev.   Baynes spoke to the
euuinior rate, but that the increased j point, and Mr. Atherton said now Ihat
winter rate would work a hardship on
those not in regular employment during
tho winter.
At this juncture Mr. C. J. Campbell
entered the hall.
Tho Chairman then said: Mr. Cmnp-
b*H: A resolution has been adopted by
this meeting in which you aro tu be
requested to tender au explanation as
to the inefficiency ol tho electric light.
Mr. Campbell replied : Weli, I didn't
come here to give any explanations or
apologise, nor make any statement.
This is a meeting to which I haven't
been invitod to attend ; si I'll just sit
down and listen to what you Icllows
have to say.
Chairman: Have you no explanation
to offer, or no guarantee that the con-
suinets may expect better service ?
Mr. Cuiupbell: I have no explanations to oiler.
Mr Nelson : I would liko to repeat the
remarks which I made earlier in the
evening. We have heard many reasons
assigned for the poor quality of tlie
electric lights. Some say it is the
fault of tho dam, some that ths belt is
do good, others that the frost is responsible,    We all know theio is a reason.
Mr. Campbell then became more confidential. He said that if the town
would like to take the plant over it was
for sale. He remarked that financially
there was nothing to it at the present
lime; that the present revenue did not
warrant the large expenditure for remodelling that the plant required; that
there was only a living in it; that the
meeting could decide then if tliey chose
whether the system was to shut down
or continue; that he could give no
guarantee of heller lights for the reason Ihat the-channel was no small nnd

Last Week's Ore Shipments.
Tho shipments of ore  for the   past
wr-ek show up badly agaitiBt the average
of the previous  three months.   This is
accounted for to  a great extent by the
shut-down of the Wakefield mill, from
which  large   shipments of  Vancouver
I concentrates  have been regularly sent
to smeller.    Tho  Hewitt Mining  Co.
have taken over the mill for the treatment of their own low grade  one, and
as  Olcott  Payne tho company's manager  will arrive from   New York  in a
few days, we expect to be able to report
the resumption of the mill.   Ono thing
certain is that tho Vancouver would bo
only to glad lo continue operating tho
mill in the event of any hitch occurring
in the Hewitt program,  but  wo have
reason to believe the mill will be treating Hewitt  ore in a mouth  or lees.   A
pleasing feature of the  metal market is
the steady n'se in silver.     On Feb. 1 it
was quoted at 5l)_C.   Today it is bl%e.

At last the answer came and it
was Maddy who brought it to Guy.
She had been home that day, and on
her return had ridden by the office
as Guy had requested her to do. She
saw the letter bore a foreign postmark, also that it was in the delicate
handwriting ol some female, but the
sight did not affect her. in the least.
Maddy's heart was far too heavy that
day to care for a trifle, and so, placing the letter carefully in her basket,
she kept on to Aikenside.
The letter was siecidedly Lucy-ish
in all that pertained to her "dearest
darling," her "precious Guy" but
when Bhe came to Maddy Clyde her
true womanly nature spoke; and
Guy, while reading it, felt how good
she waa. Of course he might teach
Maddy Clyde all he wished to teach
her, and it made Lucy love him better to know that he was willing to
do sueh things. She wished she was
there to help him; they would open
a school for all the poor, but she
did not know when mamma would
let her come. That pain in her side
was not any better, and her cough
had come earlier this season than
last. The physician had advised a
winter in Naples, and they were going before very long. Then followed
a few more lines sacred to the lover's
eye, lines which told how pure was
the love which sweet Lucy Atherstone
bore for Guy Remington, who, as he
read, felt his heart beat with a throb
of pain, for Lucy spoke to him now
lor the first time of what might possibly be.
"I've dreamed about it nights,"
she said. "I've thought about it days,
and tried so hard to be reconciled;
to feel that if God will have it so, I
am willing to die before you have
ever called me your little wife, or I
have ever called you husband. Heaven is better than earth, I know, and
I am sure of going there, I think,'
but oh, dear Guy, a life with you
looks so very sweet that sometimes
your little Lucy shrinks from the dark
grave which would hide her forever
from you. Guy, you once said you
never prayed, and it made me feel so
badly, but you will when you get
this, won't you? You will ask God
to make me well, and maybe He will
hear you. Do, Guy, please do pray
lor your Lucy, far away over the sea."
Guy could not resist that touching
appeal, "to pray for his little Lucy,"
and though his lips were all unused
to prayer, bowing, his head upon his
hands he did ask that she might live,
beseeching the Father to send upon
him any calamity save this one���
Lucy must be spared. Guy felt better for having prayed, it was something to tell Lucy, something that
would please her well, and though
his heart yet was very sad, a part
of the load was lifted, and he could
think of Lucy now without the bitter
pain her letter first had cost him.
Was there nothing that would save
her, nobody who could cure her? Her
disease was not hereditary; surely
it might be made to yield; had English physicians no skill, would not an
American do better? It was possible,
and if that mother of Lucy's would
let her come where doctors knew
something, she might get well *, but
she wouldn't; she was determined
that no husband should be burdened
with an ailing wife, and so if the
mountain would not come to Mahomet, why, Mahomet must go to the
mountain, and Guy fairly leaped from
his ehair ns he exclaimed: "I have it
������doc!���he's the most skillful man I
ever knew, I'll send him to England; send him to the Atherstones;
he shall go to Naples with them as
their family physician; he can cure
Lucy; I'll speak to him the very next
time he comes here"; and with an-
'other burden lifted from his mind.
Guy began to wonder where Maddy
He knew she had returned, for
Flora had said she brought the letter, and he was about going out, in
hopes of finding her and Jessie, when
he heard her in the hall, as she answered some question of Mrs. Noah's;
stepping to the door, he asked her to
come in, Baying he would, if she
chose, appoint the lessons talked
about so long. Ordinarily, Maddy's
eyes would have flashed with delight,
for Bhe had anticipated so much from
these lessons; now, however, there
was a sad look upon her face, and
she could scarcely keep from crying
as she came at Guy's bidding, and sat
upon the sofa, near to his armchair.
Somehow it rested Guy to look at
Maddy Clyde, who, having recovered
from her illnesB, seemed the very embodiment of perfect health, a health
which glowed nnd sparkled all over
her bright face; showing itself as well
in the luxuriance of ber glossy hnii
as in the brilliancy of her complex
Ion and the flash of her lustrous eyes.
How Guy wished that Lucy could
share in whnt seemed almost a superfluity of health* and why shouldn't
she? Dr. Holbrook had cured Maddy,
Dr. Holbrook could cure Lucy; and
so for the present dismissing that
from his mind, he turned to Maddy..
and said the time had come when he
could give those promised lessons,
asking if she would commence tomorrow, after she was through with
Jessie, and what she would prefer to
take up first.
"Oh, Mr. Remington," and Maddy
began to cry, "I am afraid I cannot
stay! They need me at home, or may.
Grandpa said so and I don't wnnt to
go, though I know it's wicked not to.
Oh. dear! dear!"
Here Maddy broke down entirely,
sobbing so convulsively that Guy became alarmed, nnd wondered what he
ought to do to quiet her.
Controlling her voice as well as she
waa able, Maddy told him how the
physicians at the asylum had written
that as Uncle Joseph would in all
human probability never be perfectly
sane, and as a chance of scene would
do him good, Mr. Markham had better try taking him a while; that having been spoken with upon the subject, he seemed as anxious as a little
child, even crying when the night
came around nnd he was not at home,
as he expressed it. "They have kept
him so long," Maddy said, "that
grandpa thought it his duty to re
.lieve them, though he can't well afford It. and bo he's dbming next week,
Aad iirBuduui will  need, someone.to
nelp,'anU f" must go. t Enow'it's
wrong, but I do not want to go, try
as I will."
It was a gloomy prospect to exchange Aikenside for the humble home
where .poverty had its abode, and it
was not very strange that Maddy
should shrink from it at first. She
did not stop to ask what was her duty,
or think how much happiness her
presence might give her grandparents,
or how much she might cheer and
Amuse the weak imbecile, her uncle.
She was but human, and so, when
Guy begnn to devise ways of preventing her going, she listened, while the
pain at her heart grew less as her
faith in Guy grew stronger. He would
drive down with her to-morrow, he
said, nnd see what could be done.
Meanwhile she must dry her eyes and
go to Jessie, who was calling her.
As Guy had half expected, the doctor came around that evening, and
inviting him into his private room
Guy proceeded at once to unfold his
scheme, asking him  first:
"How much he probably received
a year for his services as physician."
The doctor could not tell at once,
hut after a little thought, made an
estimate, and then inquired why Guy
had  asked  the question.
"Because, doc, I have a project on
foot. Lucy Atherstone is dying with
what they call consumption. I don't
believe those old fogies understand
her disease, and if you will go ovei
to England and undertake her cure,
I'll give you just double what you'll
get by remaining here. They are going to Naples for the winter, and undoubtedly, will spend some time in
Paris. It will be just the thing for
you. Lucy and her mother will be
glad of your services when they know
I sent you. Lucy likes you now. Will
you go? You can trust Maddy to me.
I'll take good care that she is worthy
of you when you come back."
At the mention of Maddy's name
the doctor's brow darkened. He was
sure that Guy meant kindly, but it
grated on his feelings to be thus
joked about what he knew was a
stem reality. Guy's project appeared to him at first a most insane one,
but as he continued to enlarge upon
it, and the advantage it would be to
the doctor to travel in tbe Old World,
a feeling of enthusiasm was kindled
in his own breast; a desire to visit
Naples and France, and the places
he had dreamed of as a boy, but
never hoped to see, Guy's plan began to look more feasible, and possibly he might have yielded but for
one thought and that a thought of
Maddy Clyde. He would not leave
her alone with Guy. even though Guy
was true to Lucy as steel. He would
stay; he would watch; and in time
he would win the young girl waiting
now for him in the hall below, waitr
ing to tell him 'mid blushes of shame
and tears of regret how she had meant
to pay him with her very first wages,
but now Uncle Joseph was coming
home, and he must wait a little
"Would he, could he be so good?"
and unmindful of Guy's presence
Maddy laid her hand confidingly upon his arm, while her soft eyes looked beseechingly into his.
How the doctor wished Guy was
away, and kindly taking the hint,
Guy ieft them together in the lighted
hall. Sitting down on the sofa, and
making Maddy sit beside him, the
doctor began:
"Mad4y, you know I mean what I
say, at least to you, and when I tell
you that I never think of that bill
except when you speak of it. you
will believe me. I know your grandfather's circumstances, and I know,
too, that I did much to induce your
sickness, consequently if I made one
out at all, it would be a very small
He did not get any further, for
Maddy hastily interrupted him, and
while her eyes flashed with pride exclaimed :
"I will not be a charity patient!
I say I will not! I'd be a hired girl
before I'd do it!"
It troubled the doctor to see Maddy
so disturbed about dollars and cents
���to know that poverty was pressing
its iron hand upon, her young heart;
and only because she was so young
did he refrain from offering her then
and there a resting place from the
ills of life in his sheltering love. But
she was not prepared, and he should
only defeat his object by his rashness, so he restrained himself, though
he did pass his arm partly around
her wuiBt as he said to her:
"1 tell you, Mnddy. honestly, that
when I want that bill liquidated I'D
ask you. I certainly will, and I'll
let you pay it, too. Does that satisfy you?"
Yes, Maddy wns satisfied, and after
a little  the  doctor   continued:
"By the way. Mnddy, I have some
idea of going to Europe for a lew
months, or a yeni ur more. You know
it does a physieinn  good  to study   .
while in Peris. What do vou think
of  it?    Shall   I  go?"
The doctor had become quite necessary to Maddy's happiness. He
it was to whom she confided all her
little troubles, and to lose him would
he a terrible loss, and so she answered that if it would be much better
for him she supposed he ought to go,
though she should miss him sadly
and  be so  lonely   without him.
"Would you, Maddy? Are you in
earnest? Would you be the lonelier
for my being pone?" the doctor asked, eagerly. With her usual truthfulness, Maddy replied* "Of course
f should"; and when, after the conference was ended, the. doctor stood
for a moment talking with Guy, ere
bidding him good-night, he said: "I
think I shall not accept your European proposition. Somebody else muat
cure  Lucy."
The next day, as Guy had proposed,
he rode down to Honedale. taking
Maddy with him, and offered so many
reasons why she should not be called
home that the old people began to
relent, particularly as they saw how
Maddy's heart was set on the lessons
Guy was going to tzive her. She might
never have n like opportunity, the
young man said, and as a good education; would put her in the way of
helping them when they were older
^nd needed her more, it was their
duty to leave her with them. He knew
they objected to her receiving three
dollars a week, but he should pay it
ill*. Uifi.VJnS. at_/l..i{ tb_a�� chose -tbav
rm-mt: "wITTi ���*���*��*��� part oT it, 'Hire' �� Tittle
girl to do the work which Maddy
would do were she at home. All this
sounded very feasible, especially as
it was backed Up by Maddy's eyes,
brimful of tears and fixed pleadingly
upon her grandfather. The sight of
them, more than Guy's arguments, influenced the old man, who decided
that, if grandma were willing, Maddy
should stay, unless absolutely needed
at the cottage. Then the tears burst
forth, and winding her arms around
her grandfather's neck, Maddy Bobbed out her thanks, asking if it were
selfish and wicked and naughty in
her to prefer learning rather than
staying there.
"Not if that's your only reason,"
grandpa replied. "It's right to want
learning, quite right; but if my child
is biased by the fine things at Aikenside, and hates to come hack to her
poor home, because 'Ub poor, I should
say it was very natural, but not exactly  right."
Maddy was very happy after it was
settled, and chatted gayly with her
grandmother, while Guy went out
with grandfather, who wished to
speak with him alone.
"Young man," he said, "you have
taken a deep interest in me and mine
since I first cnme to know you, and I
thank you for it all. I have nothing to give in return except my prayers, and those you have every day;
you and that doctor. Somehow you
three come in together. You're uncommon Rood to Mnddy. 'Taint everyone like you who would offer and assist on learning her. I don't know
what you do it for. You seem honest. You can't, of course, ever dream
of making her your wife, and, if I
thought���yes, if I supposed"���here
grandpa's voice trembled, and his
face became r livid hue with the horror of the idea���"if f supposed that
in your heart there was the shadow
of an intention to deceive my child
to ruin my Maddy, I'd throttle you
here on the spot, old as I am and
bitterly as I should repent it."
Guy attempted to speak, but grandpa motioned him to be silent, while
he went on ���
"I do not suspect you, and that's
why I trust her with you. My old
eyes are dim. hot I can see enough
now to know thnt Maddy is bentiti
ful. Her mother wbb so before her
and the Clydes were a handsome race
My Alice was elevated, folks thought
by marrying Captain Clyde, but 1
don't think so. She was pure and
���rood as the aneels, and Maddy is
much like her. onlv she has the nm
bition of the Clvdes; has the tnste
for everything n little nbove her. Shp
wouldn't make nobody blush if she
was mistress of Aikenside."
Grandpa felt relieved when he had
said all this to Omv who listened politely, smiline at the idea of his deceiving Maddy. nnd fully concurring
with grandpa in all he snid of her
rare beauty and nntural gracefulness
On their return to the house ernndpa
showed Guv the hedronm intended for
Uncle Joseph, nnd Guy. ns he glanced nt the furniture, thoueht within
himself how he would send down from
Aikenside some of the unused articles
piled awny in the garret when he refurnished his house. He wns becoming greatly interested in the Mark-
hams, caring nothing lor the remarks
his interest might excite among the
neighbors, some of whom watched
Maddy half curiously as in the stylish carriage, beside its stylish owner
she rode back to Aikenside in the
quiet  autumnal   afternoon.

Hudson   River   Bridge  to   Be   an   Extraordinary Structure.
Tbe magnitude of the projected Hudson river bridge does not at first strike
the unthinking person, but _wben li
does strike it comes wltb a breathless,
uerlnl slgnlfleauce. It will be tbe
eighth wonder of the world, and tbe
eyes of foreign engineers are turned tc
.New York wltb expectancy.
Tbe plans of the new structure are
practically tbose of the original North
river nroject. it wns ii long step from
a 1,700 foot span (then and still tbe
longest In the worldi to over ,1.000 feet,
the distance to be covered tietween tbe
piers ou either side of the broad Hudson. To make a bridge almost double
tbe length of the Brooklyn bridge
meant building tbe towers nearly twice
as high, uud in order to allow for add!
tional roadways nud tracks the bridge
of double leugtb must lie also twice ns
wide. Thus the proposition involved
was really very much more thnn building a bridge witb u double length span,
for three dimensions hud to be considered, making tbe entire structure
nearly eight times as large as tbe
Brooklyn bridge.
At flrst other engineers were loath
to believe tbut moderu materials made
possible so greut a bridge. But the en
tire profession is now agreed tbat tbe
bridge Is possible and practicable, and
their estimates of construction cost
vary between $35,000,000 nnd $50,000.-
000, depending upon the number of
tracks nnd the enrrylug capacity deslg
nnted. These figures do not include tbe
cost of approaches or right of way.
It Is nn astonishing fent thnt Is con
templntetl. this of suspending between
steel towers distant more than half a
mile eight great railway tracks and
four driveways, snys Charles H. Cocb
rane lu tbe New Broudvvny Magazine.
As n triumph of engineering the work
will have no equal. Tbere will be four
stupendous towers nt the piers. eiic>i
suggesting in appearance the eelebmt
ed Eiffel tower. These four towers
will he about 800 feet from the foun
dutl'm Btones to top. Tbey will carry
tbe eight mammoth steel cobles tnat
will curve ���gracefully across the noble
Hudson und support tbe two deck steel
truss bridge 140 feet wide, capable cf
transporting 100.000 persons in one
hour without undue crowding.
Materialism In Children.
It Is perhaps not unnatural that tbe
growth of fortunes should bring the
fncts of life early before the minds
of children and that ns a result there
should be a tendency toward materialism In even a child's point of view.
Not long ngo I beard two girls of six
and seven talking on a country road.
They were children whose parents
were amply able to give them whatever tbey thought beat for tbem to
have. The first child said: "How can
we make some money? I tell you
what, Mary, we must sell your radishes
as soon as they nre ripe." Mary answered sadly: "I wish Auut Susan
were here. She buys radishes like the
dickens." Now, these children nt this
early age were discontented with their
weekly allowance and. finding thnt
they could not get more from their parents, decided to sell to the neighbors,
and tbelr parents, wishing them to develop themselves and to learn by experience, did not prevent their doing
so.���Louisa McCrudy In Atlantic.
Coal Under Water.
Some years ago u fleet of British colliers wus sunk during a storm ln au
English harbor nnd remained under
water, for five yeurs before being
salved and brought to the surfuce. says
the Scientific American. An examination of the coul showed that It bad
kept its value for steam purposes, and
this led to some experiments by tbe
naval authorities which settled beyoud
all doubt that coal stored under water
did not deteriorate us when stored ln
tbe nir. Taking heed of this conserving power of water, the Western Electric company Is building flooded coal
pits nt Its plant nt Hawthorne, III. The
excavation Is 320 by 75 feet aud 12 feet
deep, built of concrete and divided Into
twelve pits. The conl Is dropped directly from the ears, which puss over

desired by means of ii steam shovel.

makes eczema so dreaded, and it is
this feature to which Dr. Chase's
Ointment gives relief from almost the
first application.
Dr. Chase's Ointment is not only
delightfully sooothing, but is a wonder as n means of healing the akin.
It is not long before the raw itching
sores nre thoroughly cleunsed, the
itching  subdued  and  the  process  of
healing begun. Persistent treatment
will then bring nbout a thorough cure.
This great ointment is always beneficial to the skin, making it soft,
smooth and velvety, and, besides being the most effective treatment
known for the cure of eczema, is useful in every home in a score of ways.
"My baby had eczema on her ear.
The sore was very bad, and nothing
seemed to do her much good. Hearing of the remarkable cure Dr. Chase's
Ointment was making, we sent for
some, nnd after the third application
the sore began to heal. I am glad to
say that it is quite well now, and we
give the credit to Dr. Chase's Ointment. We canjiot recommend this
preparation too highly."���Mrs. F.

This mixture, writes one authority
in a leading Montreal newspaper, hns
a peculiar tonic effect on the kidneys;
cleansing the clogged-up pores of the
eliminative tissues, forcing the kidneys to sift nnd strain from the blood
the uric acid and other poisc.ious
waste matter, overcoming Rheumatism, Bladder and Urinary troubles
in a short while.

hundreds of calls for these ingredients
since the first announcement in the
newspapers stated that the people who
once try it "swear by it," especially
those who have Urinary and Kidney
trouble and suffer with Rheumatism.

say they can supply the ingredients,
which are easily mixed at home.

Popular'Belief   In   Fascination   Has
No  Foundation   In  Fact.
It is a popular belief that serpents
have the power of capturing their
prey by casting a mysterious spell
over the victims. Even scientists
have seriously considered this supposed mesmeric power over birds.
Cuvier ascribed it to narcotic effluvia,
Audubon to the self-sacrificing audacity of nest birds, Bonpland to
the "instincts of curiosity and maternal devotion." Eussel Wallace to
"optic influences akin to hypnotism." The latter theory is the most
generally accepted, and in the rural
districts, both of Europe and North
America, bird charming snakes are
classed with such indisputable phenomena es fish deluding anglers. Contemporaries of more than average intelligence will describe the glaring
eyes of a rattlesnake that paralyzed
a youngster on his way to school
and maintain that they saw it charm
down a squirrel' from the top of a
walnut tree.
An opportunity was afforded me
last summer of disproving the snake
charm theory, writps Thomas C. Hut-
ton, in The Scientific American. The
pharmacist of a medical college had
procured a number of live serpents
for experiment* with ,vrif^ antidotes, and during the sumTJer vaca-
oitn boarded his pets in a suburb
of Bennington, Vt. They arrived in
a moderate sized dry goods box, and
with the owner's permission my
neighbor transferred them to a roomy
outhouse with a close fitting door and
a wire screen front. Through a glass
window their movements could be
watched in spite of two bundles of
straw and other aids to comfort.
Cold weather lethargized them, but
on warm afternoons four or five of
ten rattlesnakes and six moccasins
were generally in motion.
Were they trying to get out? Their
conduct rather suggested a sanitary
penchant for moderate exercise and
sun baths. And there seemed no
doubt that they hnd a memory for
meal times. General revivals repeatedly preceded ihe gong by a minute
or two. The owner's signboard, "Dinner at 3 p. m��� attracted rather a surplus of sightseers; and when it be
came known that our experiments
promised to solve a problem of ages,
catering, too, became superfluous;
volunteer gifts of rats and blackbirds
arrived in excess of our needs. Before the summer was over our visitors had settled the 6iiake charm
controversy. Twenty-eight out of
thirty intelligent witnesses agreed
thnt there is no hypnotism about it.
Our first doubts were aroused by
the complacency of birds and small
mammals and their absolute indifference to the presence of their formidable fellow-captives. Within two
feet of a coiled rattler a blackbird
would alight on the rim of the drinking trough and adjust the defects of
its toilet, Bplashing water in the very
face of the reptile that watched him
with piercing eyes. Then, after re-
pea'ed sips, he would condescend to
notice the crawler that had uncoiled
by that time, and would finally hop
aside just far enough to avoid a dispute about bathing privileges, but
still within easy reach.
Nor had the restlessness of rats
anything to do with the dread of immediate danger. They were trying to
gnaw out, but in the intervals, of
sueh efforts were apt to run straight
into the pile of straw that formed
tlie favorite rendezvous of the Ber-
pents. The snakes, indeed, were in
no hurry to abuse that confidence.
When they did get ready they scorned hypnotic artifices. A gradual elevation of the head, a noiseless approach with a short halt in reach
of the bird that was picking crumbs
in his feeding corner, then a slow
contraction of coils, a snaplike dart
and a leisurely retreat, as from a
task accomplished. The bird had
taken wing, thoroughly alarmed now,
and fluttered about the wire screen
in the desperate hope of finding a
loophole of escape. In less than 30
seconds the poison began to take ef-.
feet. The bird clutched at the screen,
with his head hanging further and
further back, then relaxed his grip,
dangled by one foot for a while and
came flopping down on the floor. It
was not dead yet, but dazed, looking
this way and that and fluttering about
iu a strange aimless fashion, and
more than once right toward the destroyer, who at last began to manifest
an interest in its antics. Once or
twice the serpent, coiled near the
centre of the floor, seemed strongly
tempted to risk a conclusive spring,
but drew back again, fully aware,
perhaps, that a better chance would
be only a question of a moment.
The bird was still on the floor, staggering to and fro when a sideward
collapse marked the beginning of the
end. Its foe wntched it with lifted
head. The chance had come. No risk
oi a rough and tumble flight now:
the victim had ceased to flutter, and
the old rattler .quickly dragged it off
to the straw pile. A full hundred
experiments repeated this same sequence of manoeuvres in all essen
The poison fangs of a snake have
no proper roots, -but terminate in a
virus bag and are attached to the jaw
by means of .ligatures thnt make them
movable to the extent of erection and
retraction7, This arrangement makes
it difficult nnd rather superfluous for
the snake to secure his victim at the
lirst spring. The fangs are adapted
only for a snap bite, but their owner
can afford to bide his time. The
virus that has been known to over
power strong men in half un hour,

He  Is Stirring Up  London With Religious Gunpowder
Rev. R. J. Campbell recently
preached another remarkable sermon
in the City Temple, London, in which
he declared that Christ was a Socialist and John the Baptist a revolutionist, who if he had been alive
to-day would be addressing crowds
in Hyde Park.
"John the Baptist preached a social revolution," he said, "and before long his violence led to his imprisonment and execution. There was
no suspicion of other-worldirm about
his message from first to lasv
"John the Baptist was exactly the
kind of man who would have led the
attack on the Bastile in the eighteenth century, or would be address

same kind of people, and had the
same  kind  of remedy.
"Jesus' belief did not differ much
from those of His times, beyond the
fact that they were simple and clear
where others were involved and turgid. To Him Heaven waa just above
the sky, nnd Hades just below the
surface of the earth.
"He saw that the rich and the
strong had all their own way to a
degree which would be inconceivable
even in a civilization like ours today, imperfect as it is. What made
Him most angry were the doings of
the hypocritical religious leaders of
His own race. He saw that the ideal
world is impossible so long as men
are arrogant, domineering, cruel, or
jealous of one nnother."
Mr. Campbell said that Jesus wanted a social order from which the
very incentives to getting wealth
were done awny with. If all the
wealthy men In that congregation
were to gi home from that service
and sell all they had and give it to
the poor, they would do far more harm
than g'lod, and make confusion worse
confounded. But Jesus was perfectly right, believing as He did in the
near coming ol the Kingdom of God.
"It is no use saying that Jesus was
not alive to the socinl wrongs of Hi.
age. for He wns. This it wns thnt
brought Him to His death. This was
why He was feared and tinted, and
why the respectable classes in the
land repudiated Him with ignominy
"He never pandered to the rabble
but with His Whole soul He loathen
the self-complacencj of the go-to-
meeting religionists, who were con
tent to be or, the side of privilege
without lifting a finger, and yet talk
ed of righteousness. It is thnt kind
of thing which hns been the curse
of religion all  the  centuries."

Instinct   Not   Faultless.
M*>ny ptso--".- -*tii| hnliev*-* the* thi
instinct of animals preserves them
irom certain accidents, and th t tliev
never eat anything that is injuriou*-
t i them. But it hns been long known
that in this regard animals are no
better off than men and women. A
chicken does not hesitate to drink
ppint; a cow partakes of water in
which bags containing nitrate of sodn
have been washed; ducks strangle and
choke in swallowing snails.
Herr Giraus, a veterinary at Pots
dam, now notes a fact that merit,
the attention of poultry farmers. He
hns observed numerous enses of pois
nning in ducks following their feed
ing on caterpillars, especially thosi
of the cabbage moth. These caterpillars have been given to the fowlf
in mass, or are found on the cabbage
leaves furnished them for food.
After from six to 20 hours, accord
ing to the.number of caterpillars eaten, poisoning manifests itself by loss
of appetite, gieat weakness, tottering
steps, accompanied sometimes bj
symptomatic movements, finally by
difficulty of breathing and often
death, after an ngony of variable dur
ation, during wliich the beak and
claws are pale. The lesions disclos*
el by an autopsy consist chiefly in
an inflammation of the digestive passages. The disease is not always
Forest   Protection
Protection of forests already existing is the first step in forestry. Fire
is by *far the most serious enemy ot
the forest; damages from insects and
fungi usually occupy an entirely secondary place. In the valley of the
Ottawa River, it has often been said,
ten times as much timber has been
destroyed by fire as has been taken
out by  the  lumbermen.
In respect to the protection of her
forests from fire, Canada has taken
the lead on the American continents.
For 22 years past���i. e., since
1886���Ontario has had a system of
protection of her forests; and the
Dominion administration and almost
all the provincial governments have
followed her lead.
All the Canadian systems of fire
protection effect this object by means
of fire rangers who patrol nn assigned district. When a fire is discovered in its first stages, they put it out;
if the fire is beyond their power to
control, they are given power to cull
in���even to compel���help.
The fire protection system on Dominion forest lands was inaugurated by
Mr. E. Stewart, then Superintendent
of Forestry, in 1901. At the beginning the number of men emploved was
smnll, but by 1904 hnd risen to forty,
and now nbout fifty men ere employed. This year, for the first time, inn-
���rers nre being employed along the
Athabasca nnd Lesser Slave Lake ;
there nre three in this region. The
���.renter number of the rangers are
emploved in tbe railway belt in British Columbia and along the eastern
slope of the Rocky Mountains; ir
these districts nbout half the totnl
number of rangers nre employed.
There are also rangers in tbe Edmonton distiict, the Prince Albert district, and on the following reserves:
Moose Mountains, Riding Mountains
Duck Mountains, Turtle Mountains
ind Sprucewoods.
The rangers nre under the supervision of the Crown Timber Aeent
Forest Rnnger. or some other officio!
designated for the purpose. Not onlv
do thev keep watch for fires, but
thev also post fire notices and generally try to impress on the people
the danger to the forests from fires
and the need of care in setting fires;
this educational feature is not the
least valuable part of their work. On
private timber limits half the expense
of fire ranging is borne by the limit
owners and half bv the Dominion
TOvernment; on lands not under license the Dominion government pays
the whole expense.
The value of such a system of fire
protection is impossible to estimate
Tt is the "ounce of prevention" and
be putting out of a small fire mnv
���nean the saving of many thousands
of dollars.
Testimony ns to the efficiency of
this system hns, however, been given
bv mnnv lumbermen, both on provincial and Dominion lands.
Hint Fo** Pipe Smokers.
At a recent exhibition in London
there was a novel contest���a pipe
smoking "slow race." The principle
seems to have beeu the survival of the
slowest, and the prize was a grand
piano. A hundred and fifty smokers
took part in the contest, the rule
being that * the one who could keep
his pipe, loaded with an eigth of an
-vince of tobacco, lighted the longest
should get the piano. Every kind
and condition of pipe was represented,
but an old, well-seasoned briar, in
the mouth of a sturdy painter, won
the piano for its owner. The winner
had made his eighth of an ounce ol
tobacco last just two hours. "Put
my success down," he said, "to filling
my pipe carefully and pressing the
tobacco down with a pencil."
Soldier and Duk*!.
The Duke of Connaught was
the subject of an amusing contretemps during his recent visit to
India. He hnd gone for a walk early
one morning, and Bpoke to on old
Boldier, who wore a ribbon of the
mutiny, among other medals. "You
are in the army yourself?" asked the
old man, to which the Duke replied,
"Yes." "And are you getting on all
right?" "Pretty fair; but not so well
as I should like." said the duke, appreciating the humor of the situation.
'No, and you never will," was the unexpected retort of the veteran. "You
want a durn lot o' influence behind
you before you make any i(how in the
army. You take my tip, matey, ond
chuck it!"
Balaclava Survivor.
Lord Tredegar, who has recently
entered on his seventy-eighth year,
is one of the most notable survivors of Balaclava. As a young
officer he rode with the famous Light
Brigade, being then a lieutenant in
the 17th Lancers. On hiB return from
the historic charge, he found himself
in command, all his senior officers
having been killed. Coming home unscathed, he went into Parliament,
and until he succeeded his father
ithe first bnron) snt for Brecknock.
In more recent times, Lord Tredegar
has done much to encourage agriculture   in   the   district   of   Newport.

A Carolina man was recently inspecting a farm owned by him and
operated by an old friend who had
pressed into service every member of
hie family, including his aged father.
"The old man must be getting along
in years," said the owner.
"Yes, Dad's nigh on to ninety,"
was the reply.
"Is his health good?"
"Well, no. The old man ain't been
