Tiiere can not be much satisfaction in
''goiii' around and hckin' the editor"
when Ihe latter not only makes copy
out of the encounter, but pictures himself as the hero as well. The following
vivid pen pietnie is taken from the
editorial columns of an Iowa journal:
"There was a blow. Somebody fell.
We got up. Turning upon our antagonist, we succeeded in winding his arms
around our waist and by a quick manoeuvre threw him on top of us, bringing our back, at the same time, in conduit with the solid bed of the printing
press, Then inserting our nose between liis teeth, and cleverly entangling
his hands in our hair, we had him!"
Stege vs. Thorpe and Nelson was an
action for the recovery of %\2 balance of
a board bill owing by tlie latter, brought
before Justices Smith and A. Mclnnes
at New Denver last Saturday, Both
men had left the town and weie arrested at Silverton but th|jy den'ed any
intention of jumping the country without paying their board bill. The
magistrates bound them over to pay
tlieir  debt in ten days.

creek, by a rock which had become dislodged, falling down the hillside, and
striking him on the knee, but beyond

be nothing serious, and he hopes to
resume work in a text days.

On the 10th May, a party, comprising
Mr. H. G. Rowe and Dr. Freeman, both
from Ohio, and guided by R. M. Cook,
of New Denver, proceeded to Wilton
creek lor the purpose olhunl ing grizzly.
The party made for above tho falls and
after seven or eight days beating round
came upon a liear which fell a victim to
the rifle of Mr, Rowe. During the next
few days throe more bears were sighted
and added to the bag. Of the four, two
were black and two brown, all in splendid condition, one of the bears being ol
unusual size.
A most enjoyable month was spent,
both gentlemen expressing themselves
as highly satisfied with their outing.
Although they were not successful in
adding a grizzly to their bag, they were
loud in tlieir praises as to the district
being a splendid locality for hunting,
and intend coming back next spring
with two more friends.
Mr. Cook, as guide and general factotum, says both were very good in the
hills, being first-class sportsmen and
rustlers. m '
A young grizzly cub accompanied the
party back to the States and will doubtless be the hero of many anecdotes
regarding the hunt.

The Howard Fraction.
L. G. Kelium, representing the Wabash Gas Colnpany of Pittsburg, owners
of the Howard Fraction group, is prospecting the claims and inspecting the
work that has been in progress for over
a year under the management of J. M.
M. Benedum. The crosscut tunnel has
now reached a distance of over 700 feet,
and it is expected that lhe rich Howard
Fraction vein will be cut at a depth of
about 800 feet before the tunnel shall
have been driven another hundred feet.
Tne Howard Fraction ore is quartz,
carrying less than one per cent, of pyrites associated with argentrite, and 1*50
tons of the sorted ore was sold to the
smelters in 1895-6 lor $15,000, about one-
fourth of the value being gold, and the
balance silver. But, as the vein dips
into Ihe hill at an angle of about 80 degrees, the raining, in an incline shaft
was expensive and necessarily shallow,
and no mining has been done on the
claims since '96, till this tunnel was
As there are numerous claims of the
same character of ore and other c.on-
ditiius, in the Howard Fraction district,
all of which have been hold on faith and
little work for a dozen years, it is expected that a revival of mining on an
extensive scale wou'd follow the discovery of rich ore in this Howard Enaction crosscut. Accordingly no work in
Slocan camp is watched with more interest.

Wisconsin Capitalists Put up
$30,000 to Complete Saw
Mill at Summit Lake.
During the past week, a bunch of
���eviill men from Rhineland, Wis., have
been quietly touring the Slocan looking
for business openings, and when on
Thursday last, thee gentlemen got off
the train at Summit, there was much
speculation as to the nature of their
business. Perfect strangers to this part
of tlie country, they looked around and
listened lo what everybody had to say
and eventually they paid a vi.it to Ihe
partly constructed saw mill owned by
G. F. Robertson, which was built under
the firm name of the Summit Lumber
Company. Being the only place in
town where a number of men could be
bunked for the night, Mr. Robertson, in
typical western style, entertained his
guests. It is but natural when a number of business men get together that
the "Almighty iron" should be the
predominant note in the conversation,
and tliey learned from Mr. Robertson
how he was at pres.nt handicapped by
lack of finances, and how the people
who had promii-ed to see the thing
through had failed him.
The next morning Mr. Robertson was
met by Messrs. McEnchern, Smith, and
Brown, three of the guests, and these
gentlemen offered to subscribe the
necessary $80,000 spot cash and take
over the residue of the stock.
Everything was all satisfactorily
settled the same day, and the new saw
mill will be completed as soon as hands
can do it.
The new syndicate own fourteen
limits around Summit Lake which will
keep the mill running for some time.
Mr. Robertson told our reporter that
he has orders in front of him that will
take a year to fill and that the new mil 1
will be in operation by the middle of
July. The mill has a capacity of 40,000
a day and it will mean that not less than
forty men will find employment fn a
few weeks.
The C. P. R. made a change wliich
took effect on Monday that is not meeting with approval. The tri-weekly service between Sandon and New Denver
has again been altered, and the company has cut off the morning service
altogether. In future the train from
Rosebery will make one trip a day to
Sandon, and that in the evenings of
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The Fishery inspectror, inttead of
bothering his head for the present about
re-stocking the lakes, should pay attention to the sawmills along the shores of
Arrow Lake. One in particular at
Pings ton creek has a huge sawdust dump
that is now half under water. The effect
on the lives of fish is too palpable to
need fuither talk.
A man, a desk, a telephone,
Another man, they two alone,
A big prospectus, an assay,
A mine, two thousand miles away.
Photos of three hydraulic muckers,
Ah, gentle spring's the timef.rsuckers!
Great excitement was caused the
other day to some lonely dwellers
between New Denver and Sandon, when
two bears and a cub were sighted peacefully feeding on the young shoots a few
yards above the track.
Not haying been supplied with arms
by the defence committee of the colony,
it was found that only one person had
a rifle, so the others retired to a coign
of vantage, (aloft), and proceeded to
give instructions to the army below.
Now bear shooting is not exaotly the
same thing as target shooting, but still,
a bear is a fairly good sized bullseye,
and the spectators were highly inter-
sated by some good volley firing; iu
fact they seemed more excited tban tba
living target which would not be driven
off fhe Held until it got the cub into a
place of safety. There are still two
bears and a cub awaiting their end
somewhere higher up the elide.
A deer got into Mr. Harris' orchard*
the other day and was regaling itself
on the young cherry trees when the
owner was made aware of the fact and
promptly proceeded to the spot with a
gun and dispatched it. Venison must
make a very acceptable dish just now.

IOUIS had walked1 on to his devotions in no very charitable
g frame of mind, us was easily to
be seen from his clouded brow
and compressed lips. He knew his lute
favorite well, her impulsiveness, her
audacity, her lack of all restraint wheu
thwarted or opposed. She wiis capable
of making a hideous scandal, of turning against him that bitter tongue
which had so often made him laugh at
the expense of others, perhaps even of
making some public exposure which
would leuve hlm the butt and gossip of
Europe. He shuddered at the thought.
At all costs such a catastrophe must be
averted. And yet how could he cut
the tie which bound them? This woman would Struggle hard, light to thc
bitter end, before she would quit the
position which was so dear to her. She
spoke of her wrongs. What were her
In his Intense selfishness, nurtured
by. the eternal Mattery wliich wus the
very air he breathed, he could uot see
that the fifteen years of her life which
ho hnd absorbed or the loss of the husband whom he had supplanted gave
her uny claim upou him. Iu his view
he had raised her to the highest position which a subject could occupy.
Now he was weary of her, and It was
her duty to retire with resignation���
uny, even with gratitude for past favors. She should have a pension, and
thc children should be cared for. What
could u reasonable woman ask for
On the whole, his conscience acquitted hlm. But In this one matter he hud
beeu lux. From the lirst coming of
his gentle nnd forgiving young wife
from Spain he had never once permitted her to be without a rival. Now
that she was dend the matter was no
better. One favorite had succeeded
another, aud If De Montespan hnd held
her own so loug it wns ruther from her
audacity than from his affection. But
now Fnther la Chaise and Bossuet
were ever reminding him thnt he had
topped the summit of his life and was
already upon thnt downward path
which lends to the grnvo. The time
had come for gravity and for calm,
neither of which wns to be expected
In the company of Mme. de Montespan.
But he had found out where they
were to be enjoyed. From the dny
.when De Montespan had Introduced
the stntely nnd silent widow ns a governess for his children ho had found a
never falling aud ever Increusing pleasure In her society. For a time he had
thought that her piety and her talk of
principle might be a mere mask, for
he was accustomed to hypocrisy all
round hlm. It wns surely unlikely ttint
a womnu who wns still beautiful, with
ns bright nn eye and as graceful a figure as any lu his court, could after a
life spent In the gayest circles preserve the spirit of a nun. But on this
point he was soon undeceived, for
when his own language had become
warmer thnn that of friendship he had
been met by an leiucss of mnnner and
n brevity of speech which hud shown
him that there wus one woman at least
iu his dominions who hnd a higher respect for herself than for him. And
perhaps It wns better so. The plncld
pleasures of friendship were very
soothing after the storms of pnssion.
To sit In her room every nfteruoon, to
listen to talk which wus not tainted
with flattery nnd to hear opinions
which were not framed to please his
ear were the occupations now of his
happiest hours. And then her Influence over him was all so good!
And now he knew thut the time had
come when he must choose between
her nnd De Montespan. Their Influences were antagonistic. They could
not continue together. He stood be
tween virtue and vice, and he must
Such were the thoughts which ran
through (he king's bend ns ho bent

Immediate household around hlm, whll'
Hie court, ladles and cavaliers, filled
tlie chapel. Piety wns a fashion now,
like dnrk overconts nnd Inco cravats
and no courtier was so worldly mlndec
us not to hnve hud a touch of gruet
since the king had taken to religion.
It was the habit of Louis as he walked back from the chapel to receive petitions or to listen to any tales of
wrong which his subjects might bring
to hlm. On this particular morning
there were but two or three���a Parisian who conceived himself injured
by the provost of his guild, a peasnnt
whose cow hnd been torn by n lnints-
iniiu's dog uud u farmer who hud hnd
hurd usage from his feudul lord. A
few questions nnd then n hurried order
to his sccretury disposed of each case.
He wns about to resume his way iigaiu
when nn elderly mini, clud in the gurb
of a respectable citizen and with a
strong, deep lined face which marked
him as a mnn of character, darted for-
wurd und threw himself down upon
one knee lu front of the monureh.
"What is this?" nsked Louis. "Who

"I nm a citizen of Paris, and I havo
been cruelly wronged."
"You seem a very worthy person. If
you have indeed been wronged you
shall have redress. What huve you to
complain of?" .   .
"Twenty of the Blue dragoons of
Languedoe nre quartered In my house,
with Captain Dalbert nt their bond.
They have devoured my food, stolen
my property and benten my servants,
yet the mugistrates will give uie- no redress."
"On my life, justice seems to be administered In n strnrige fushlon ln our
city of Purls!" exclulnied the king.
"And yet there may be a very good
reason for it," suggested Pero la
Chaise. "I would suggest that your
majesty should ask this man his nnme,
his business nnd why It wus thnt the
dragoons were quartered upon him."
"You hear the reverend futher's question."
"ITy name, sire, is Catlnat, by trade
I am a merchant in cloth, and I am
treated In this fashion because 1 am of
the Reformed church."
The king shook his head and his brow
darkened. "You have only yourself to

"By embracing the only true faith."
"I am alrendy n member of It, sire."
The king stamped his foot angrily.
"I can see that you are a very insolent
heretic," said he. "There is but one
church in France, and that is my
church. If you are outside that you
cannot look to me for aid."
"My creed Is that of my father, sire,
and that of my grandfather."
"If they have sinned it Is no reason
why you should. My own grandfather
erred also before his eyes were
"But he nobly atoned for his error,"
murmured tho Jesuit.
"Then you will not help me, sire?"
"You must flrst help yourself."
The old Huguenot stood up with a
gesture of despair, while the king continued on his way, the two ecclesiastics ou either side of him murmuring
their approval Into his ears.
But the king bore the face a man
who was not absolutely satistied with
bis own action.
"You do not think, then, that these
people have too hard a measure?" said
he. "1 hear that they are leaviug my
kingdom in great numbers."
"And surely It Is better so, sire, for
what blessing can come upou a country which hns such stubborn Infidels
Within Its boundaries?"
"Those who are traitors to God can
scarce be loyal to the king," remarked
"J can see that you arc a very Insolent
heretic," said he.
Bossuet. "Your majesty's power would
be greater if there were no temple, as
they cnll their dens of heresy, withiu
your dominions."
"My grandfather bus promised them
protection. They are shielded, as you
well kuow, by the edict which he gave
at Nantes."
"But It lies wilh your mnjesty to
undo the mischief thut bus beeu done."
"And how?"
"By reeulling the edict."
"And driving into the open arras of
my enemies 2,000,000 of my best artisans and of my bravest servants. How
say you, Louvois?"
"With all respect to the church, sire,
I would say that the devil has given
these men such cunning of baud nnd
>f bruin thnt they nre the best workers and traders lu your majesty's king-
lom. I know not how the stnte coffers
ire to be filled If such taxpayers go
trom among us."
"But," remarked Bossuet, "If It were
mce known that the king's will had
)een expressed jour majesty may rest
assured that even the worst of his subjects bear hlm such love thnt they
would hasten to come within the pule
of the holy church."
The king shook his bend. "They hnve
always been stubboru folk," suid he.
"Perhaps," remarked Louvois, glnnc-
Ing maliciously nt Bossuet, "were the
bishops of France to make an offering
to the state of the treasures of their
sees we might theu do without these
Hugueuot taxes."
"The kingdom Is mine nnd nil that, ls
iu It," remnrked Louis ns thej entered
the grand sulon in wliich the court
assembled nfter chapel, "yet X trust
that It may be long before I nave to
claim wealth of the church. Where Is

THE elderly Huguenot had stood
silent after his repulse by the
king, with his eyes cast moodily downwurd nnd a fnce In
which doubt, sorrow nnd nnger contended for the mastery. He was a very
large, gaunt mnn, rnwboned and haggard, with a wide forehead, a large,
fleshy nose aud a powerful chin. He
was dressed as became his rank, plain-
ly and yet well, In a sad colored brown
kersey.coat with silver ailated buttons.

woolen stockings, ending lu broad toed
black leather shoes cut across with a

Ills doubts as to what his next step
Bhould be were soon resolved for him
in a very summary fashion. These
were days when, if the Huguenot was
not absolutely forbidden In France, he
' was nt least looked upon as.a mau who
existed upou sufferance, nnd who was
unshielded by the laws wliicb protected
his Catholic fellow subjects. For twenty years the stringency of the persecution hnd increased until there wns no
weapon which'bigotry could employ,
short of absolute expulsion, which had
not been turned against hlm.
Two of the king's big blue coated
guardsmen were on duty at that side
of the palace nnd hnd been witnesses
to his unsuccessful nppeal. Now they
tramped across together to where he
was standing and broke brutally into
the current of his thoughts.
"Now, Hymnbooks," snid one gruffly,
"get off ngnin nbout your busluess."
The old Huguenot shot a glance of
anger and contempt at them and was
turning to go wheu one of them thrust
at his ribs with the butt end of his

The two soldiers dropped their halberds and rushed upon the eld mnn,
but, tall nud strong as they were, they
found It no eusy mutter to secure hlm.
They hnd hardly won their pitiful victory, however, before a stern voice aud
a sword flushing before their eyes
compelled them to release their prisoner once more.
It wns Captain de Cntlnnt, who, his
morning duties over, had strolled out
on the terrace nnd hnd come upon this
sudden scene of outrage. At the sight
of the old mun's face he gave n violent
stnrt nnd, drawing his sword, had
rushed forward with such fury that
the two guardsmen not only dropped
tlieir victim, but, staggering back from
the threnteuing sword point, one of
them slipped nnd the other rolled over
bim, a revolving mass of blue cont and
white kersey.
"Villains!" roared De Catinat. "What
is the meaning of this?"
The two hnd stumbled to their feet
ngain, very shamefaced and ruffled.
"If you pleuse, captain," said one, saluting, "this Is a Hugueuot who abused
the royal guard."
"His petition had been rejected by
the king, captain, nnd yet he refused to

"And so when a French citizen hns
come to have a word with the great
master of his country lie must be harassed by two Swiss dogs like you?" ho
cried. "By my faith, we shall soon see
about that!"
He drew a little silver whistle from
his pocket, and at the shrill summons
nn old sei'genut and half n dozen soldiers came running from the guardroom.
"Sergeant, you will arrest i-hese
"Certainly, captain," snld the sei*.
"See that tliey are tried today for assaulting an aged and respected citizen
who had come on business to lhe king."
"He was a Huguenot ou liis own confession," cried Hie culprits together.
"Hum!" The sergeant pulled doubtfully at his long mustache. "Shall we
put the charge In that form, captain?
Just ns the enptuin pleases."
"No," said De Catinat, with a sudden happy thought. "I charge them
with laying their halberds down while
on duty nnd with having their uniforms dirty nnd disarranged."
"Thnt is better," nnswered the ser-
geunt, with the freedom of a privileged veteran. "Thunder of God, but
you have disgraced the guards! An

The Huguenot had stood In the background, grave and composed, without
any sign of exultation, during this
sudden reversal of fortune, but when
the soldiers were gone he and the
young officer turned warmly upon encb
other. . .
"Amory, I hnd not hoped to see you!"

Tiiese are some of the signs that the

trying months of indoor winter life

which Is one of the evils of speculutlon,
tbe stuck market tells the truth. Temporarily Indicuiious mny lie misleading,
but it Is eventually shown thnt Its
nmilysis of events Is correct. The silent puulc of March, 1U07. wns n premise of the panic of November. During the intervening seven months prices
dropped steadily, showing plainly that
there was a weakness in the tinaiiclal
and industrial structure. The utter
foolishness of blaming speculation for
the downward movement ls obvious.
The stock market with Its daily record
of prices suld rs plainly as It was possible to say: "Danger! Stand from under!"
Something slinllnr happened ln 1S93.
Bradstreet's for July 29, 181.3, shows
that twenty represeiitntlve Rtocks fell
on nn average 45 points, or more than
50 per cent, between January and July.
This mitigated the effect of the pnulc.
One of the most striking illustrations
of the cold blooded accuracy of the exchange Is recorded by Proudhon In
the Speculator's Manual, published at
Paris In 1857, in which he shows that
In the Inter days of Napoleon and tbe

Kings Who Turned to Teaching to
Make a Living.
In the early part of the life of King
Christian IX. of Denmark there wos
no prospect of his ever becoming tbe
ruler, of that country. With this In
view he became u schoolmaster at the
German university of Halle.
Being too poor to keep a servant, the
Dowager Czarina Dagmar of Russia,
one of his daughters, used to help her
mother to do the household work and
take care of tbe younger children.
During this period there were King
Frederick VII. and several others In
the direct line of succession that stood
before Prince Christian; but, by a succession of deaths that occurred, he became the heir apparent, and after the
death of King Frederick VII. ln 1863
he wns proclaimed King Christian IX.
of Denmark.
Another Instance of a similar nature
Is tbat of Louis Philippe. During tbe
time he was exiled from France, then
being the Due de Cliartres, be became
a teacher of mat hematics and geography In Switzerland About thirty-six or
thirty-seven years afterward, on Aug.
9, 1830, he wns proclaimed King Louis
Philippe of the French.���London Answers.

gave him the nickname of "The File"

A  Storm  as Pictured by the Weather
Bureau and by a Poet.
In commenting on the fact that a
person may be thoroughly equipped on
the scientific side of music without
being sentltlve to Its beauty as an art
Gustuv Kobbe In his book "How to
Appreciate Music" quotes the witty
distinction which Edmund Clarence
Stedmim draws Tn. his "Nature and
Elements of Poetry" between the Indications of a storm as described by a
poet nnd by the official prognostications of the weather bureau.
Mr. Stedman gives two stanzas:
When   descends  on   the Atlantic the  gigantic
Storm wind of the equinox,
Landward ln Ills wroth he scourges ths
tolling* surges,
Laden with seaweed from the rocks.
And this stanza by a later balladlst:
The en3t wind gathered, all unknown,
A thick sea cloud his course before.
He left by night the frozen zone
And smote tho cliffs of Labrador.
He lashed the coasts on cither hand,
And betwixt the Cnno and Newfoundland,
Into tho bays his armies pour.
All this Impersonation and faiviy are
transluted by the weather bureau Into
something like this:
"An area of extreme low pressure Is
rapidly moving up tho Atlantic coast,
w'.th wind aud rain. Storm center now

Murder of *Xing Carles Recalls Other
Royal  Tragedies.
Twenty-one rulers of civilized countries murdered in just over a century!
No wonder a timid man like the Tsar
shuts himself up in a fortified palace,
and every one is constantly quoting
Shakespeare's words, "Uneasy lies the
head that wear a crown." And it has
remained for Portugal, which, likelier
neighbor Spain, has been practically
free from royal assassination ��� although attempts have been made by
anarchists and political regicides���to
establish a sad record; for never within modern history, at an rate, have a
sovereign and crown prince been murdered together.
The- assassination of King Alexander
nnd Queen Draga of Servia in June,
1903, is the nearest parallel to the terrible deed which has just horrified
the world. How the young King disgusted his Ministers and the army,
and rendered himself generally unpopular by marrying Madame Masch-
in, his mother's lady-in-waiting, is
too recent history to need more than
a passing mention here. It is interesting to note, however, that most of
the army officers who carried out the
plot, and actually murdered the King
and Queen in the palace, are not only
alive, but still hold prominent military appointments. Moreover, they
were pnid $60,000 for the deed.
"throe years previous to the Servian
tragedy King Humbert of Italy was
slain by the anarchist liresci; while
in 18(18 the cruel and utterly purposeless murder of the beautiful and gracious Empress of Austria took place.
The Empress wns passing through
Genevn on her return from Wiesbaden,
where she had been for treatment of
a heart affection, when she was stabbed with a small file-shaped stiletto,
which pierced her heart. King Humbert was shot while entering his carriage, and it is un extrordinnry fact
that Jie had twice previously escaped
being murdered only by a hair's
breadth. In Naples in 1878 a man
rushed up nud tried to Rtab His Majesty with a poniard, but the King
escaped with a slight scratch; while,
nineteen years later, as King Humbert was driving to tlie Campanile
racecourse, a workman struck nt him
with a dagger. Luckily the blow wus
Included in the twenty-one rulers
already mentioned are eight Presidents who have been assassinated,
and it is a singular fact that three
of them were Presidents of the United States; and they have all been
murdered within the last forty-five
years. First came President Lincoln
in 1805, Garfield in 1881, and McKin-
ley twenty years later. The murder
of President Lincoln came like a thunderclap to the people of America just
when they were rejoicing that the
great Civil war had come to an end.
Lincoln went to Ford's theatre in
Washington, nnd sat with his family
in a box watching the performance of
"Our American Cousin," when J.
Wilkes Booth, nn nctor, who with others had prepared a plot to assassinate tlie several heads of the Government, entered the box and shot the
President through the brnin.
He then stubbed Major Henry Rath*
bone with n knife, and crying out
"Sic semper tyrnnnus; the South i.*
avenged!" rushed across the stage
through the back door, and escaped
by riding off on a horse which waF
kept waiting for him. He was cap
tured twelve days afterward, however
and  forthwith  shot.
President Garfield was shot, by a
disappointed office seeker, while Mc
Kinley, it mny be remembered, met
his death nt the hands of Czolgosz,
the anarchist, at the Buffalo Exposition.
Four of Russia's Tsars have beer
assassinated, the last being Alexander II. in 1881. Six times did assassins attempt this monarch's life. On
one occasion he only escnpe.d through
the barrel of the assassin's pistol
bursting, while in 18GG, when the dining hall of the Winter Palace was
wrecked by nn explosion proceeding
from the cellars beneath, the Emperor
owed his life to a breach of his usual
punctuality, the company not having
sat down to dinner when the explos
ion took place.
His Majesty's "Guardian Angel,"
however, was powerless agninst the
Nihilists' bombs of 1831. The Emperor was returning to the Wintei
Palace after a military review, when
his carriage wns suddenly shattered
by a bomb. Several of the escort were
killed, but strangely enough the Tsai
himself remained unhurt. After in
quirirfg about the wounded, .His Mn
jesty, with phenomenal coolnfss, continued his progress on foot. He had
advanced but a few steps when nnother bomb exploded, at his feet, nnd
mangled his body in the most frightful manner. He died a few hours

How to  Cure Thorn.
Pimples, face sores, and the kindred eruptions common to late winter and early spring, are the worst
disfigurements tlie fair sex have to
bear. The indoor life of winter has
caused impure matter which the skin
should get rid of for the blood, to
remain in the pores; tlie process of
"exhalation" is interrupted; the
general complexion suffers, and just
where the bud matter collects, pimples, ulcers, and sores quickly appear. To remove the impurities, 'he
pores must be opened and the functions of tlie skin stinn'l.'ited, liy the
vigorous application of Zani-Uuk

-icbild was not blessed wltb good looks

expression of woe on the face of the

witli the yield of wheat per acre, and
now do the prices obtained for tin-
two crops OOmpare. A report recently issued by the Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture shows that
the average yield of flaxseed and
wheat respectively for the last throe
veil rs  wits  as  follows:
Yield of Flax-      Yield of Wheat
seed per acre. per acre.
1005      15.73  bushels.      23.09 bushels.
11)06       9.35  bush-els.      21.40  bushels.
1907      10,91  bushels.      14.04 bushels.
Thus the average yield of flaxseed
per acre for the three years was
ibout twelve bushels per acre, while
.ho average yearly yield of wheat
was about nineteen and 11 half busb-
ils per acre. It is probable that the
���educed yield of flaxseed per acre in
,900 and 1907 as compared with 1905
,vatj due to the fact that may Saskatchewan farmers grew flax three
,-ears in succession on the same soil.
To get the best results from flaxseed
t must not be sown year after year
.11 the same soil, Nearly every fur
riot in 'he North-West has land enough to sow part in Hax and part in
jtlier crops, changing about to get
.lie proper rotation. The best results are always obtained when flax*
ieed is sown after the first breaking
if the prairie soil.
As regards prices at the present
Jine, No. 1 wheat and flaxseed an*
selling nt nearly the same prices, but
this is very unusual, being due cliief-
y to the following facts. 1. Then
was an exceptionally benvy crop oi
laxseed in the Argentine Republic
and other parts of South America last
/ear. 2. Tlie financial depression
caused a falling off In the production
if those classes of goods in the mak-
.ng o' wliicu flaxseed and linseed oil
ure used ns raw materials. These
causes nre very exceptional and may
lot occur again for years. Lastyeai
.is high as 1.1.38 per bushel was paid
ior flaxseed, and the average price
was about $1.27 per bushel. On the
other hand the price of wheat is at
present exceptionally high. Then in
considering the yield of wheat laet
year as compared with that'*of flax.
it should be noted that much of the
.vheat did not grade very high and
would not command the full price.
However the important point to
remember regarding flaxseed is that
it can be sown so much later than
wheat that very often a farmer can
utilize land t-.at would otherwise go
without any crop at all. After the
wheat, oats and barley have been
iowii the flaxseed may be put in.
Then except in the early spring the
ilax is less liable to injury from frost
than the wheat, and the farmer who
has part of his land in flaxseed may
ieel that be is insured against total
loss if frost should destroy his wheat.
The new settlers are the ones for
whom flaxseed is the most profitable,
not only because it can be sown later
than any other crop, but also because when sown on flrst breaking it
prepares the land for a wheat crop
the following year. Thus the farmer
gets the auvantage of a good paying
crop the first year from land which
would otherwise yield him no return
at all, and he has a bigger crop of
wheat on the same soil tbe following
/ear, because the flax crop rots the
sod and disintegrates it.

"Lieutenant Shackleton, tho young

"At a dinner in Lieutenant Shnc-

with a humorous glance toward several grizzled explorers whose lives
und been passed in looking for the
north  pole:
" 'After all, who was this Colum
bus that we should make such a fuss
jver him? Surely, gentlemen, Col-
imbus was an overrated man. The
tusk he performed was an easy one
Why, he discovered America the very

The Home Paper.
The mail or woman who dues not
rend his or her home papers can not
keep in touch with things at homo
and hoine matters to each and every
one of us, says the National Daily.
A great journalist is on record as
saying that the real secret of success
in journalism is knowledge and proper appreciation of tlio true perspective of news. The same idea was
somewhat differently expressed by
11 Parisian who declined that "a dead
dog on a Parisian boulevard was of
far more importance to a resident ef
Paris than tne drowning of tlie population of a whole province in China.
Ot the overflowing of the Yalu river."
It is tlio duty and it ought to be
the pleasure of a town, village or
rural oommunityto support the town,
village or county paper or papers.
Tn doing so there is mutual benefit
that must be beneficial to the entire
community. The country press of
today is more enlightened and is conducted on a higher plane than it ever
was. The so-called provincial press
was never as worthy of support as it
is right now. Good papers make for
the good of the community in which
they are printed and circulated. No
resident of a town or rural district
can be said to keep in step with the
times and with bis fellowinen, who
does not support and read his local
paper. It may seem to the unthinking that some of the chronicling, i.f
the country press are of a trivial
nature, but one of America's greatest poets aptly says: "These littlo
tilings are great to little men." And
what is any man but little when compared with infinitude?���Western Publisher.

Dear Sir,
As the strawberry season is getting
very close, we take tlie liberty of
writing you in reference to metbodB of
From experience of past years we
are in a position lo tell you that
shipping strawberries in ordinary express cars in large quantities, when
tbey have lo be transferred once or
ofteuer on tbe way, is anything but a
satisfactory method of transportation.
We strongly advise growera who
have a large enougli quantity to
load refrigerator cars to do so, and
would advise growers with smaller
quantities to get together and load refrigerator cars between them, and
then have tbe cars hitched to express
trains. In tbis way we believe a
lower rate can be obtained and the
refrigeration will mean that the berries will land in our market in good
condition, and if tbere is one thing
tbat tbis maiket is famous for, we
think it ia long prices fur fancy quality of fruit. We have, durii.g ihe
winter time, consulted several times
witli the C. P. R. officials here with
reference to a refrigerator car service
for B.C. fruit to Winnipeg, and we
have tlieir assurance that refrigerator
cars will be placed at the princip:
