Consolidated Company About
To Instal Compressor
And Tramway.
It is witb genuine pleasure that we
record a substantial revival in our staple
industry. From the many mines which
surround the once famous payroll centre
come most excellent reports. We can
truthfully write that at the present time
at every mine in the vicinity the miners
are working on ore. In some instances
this is tbe outcome of a program of development and deep miniDg, sterling
factors which have established the per-
mane-ace ol the values and tbe reputa- |
tion of the banner silver-lead section of
the province. For the past six weeks
the arrival of miners to the camp has
Seen steady, and these have immediately found employment at tip-top
wages. But yet many more good miners
are needed, the lack of which is retarding   the  progress    of  many* property
ThiB well-known group, owned and
operated by the wealthy Consolidated
fining and Smelting Company of
Canada, Limited, is likely to rrove the
most potent factor in the resurrection
of tbe industry in our midst. There are
now about forty men on the payroll
and good miners are being eagerly
sought. At the mine there is an immense bodv of concentrating ore blocked out, to treat which the company
have in view tbe construction of a mill
or tbe leasing of either the Ivanhoe or
Slocan Star concentrators. Arrangements are also under way for tbe erection of an aerial tram, tho proposed
site for the lower terminal of which, together with a compressor plant, is the
foot of the Star gulch, a point from
which ore can be dumped direct from
the bim to the cars of both the Canadian Pacific and K. & 8. companies.
This famous high-grade mine, alter
being closed down for some time, has
once more been opened with a large
force of men by J. M. Harris, and it
will shortly enter the shipping lists
again. The Reco trail is a busy one,
pack trains making two trips a day. A
large consignment of ore sacks went up
on Tuesday. We understand that a
new ledge has been located with a pay-
Btrcak of great richness.
This properly was shut down two
months ago when the ore body was
showing up strong, but the legal proceedings which threatened to tie up the
mine for a long time have been withdrawn, and Lieut-Governor Dunsmuir,
virtual owner ei the adjoining Noble
Five group and tbe Last Chance company have agreed to submit the disputed
point to arbitration. Work under contract, however, is being pushed at an-
other level by William Findlay and a
crew of men.
At tbe conclusion of last season's
Work the local syndicate owning the
group shipped 30 tons of ore which
netted them $7,000. It was then agreed
by the owners that to prove tbe value
of the rich vein at depth, a 300 foot
crosscut tunnel would havo to be driven.
Thl8 work is in progress, and when it .s
completed it will give them a vertical
depth of 175 feet on the ledge. Extra
miners are needed, as about the 1st of
August it is intended to develop No.
8 level, running north and south drills,
whichareinore. The syndicate figure
on shipping enough from the noith and
south drifts this fall to pav for the development. Geo. Clark, one of the
owners, is superintending.
Work was resumed at this mine three
weeks ago, and a good sized crew put to
work.    The  property  will  enter  thei
shipping lists again in a few days. The
Towgood packing outfit have orders to
begin on the first car.
Both mine and mill are working full
handed, and gratifying results are reported. The output from the mill is
on an average four cars of concentrates
a month.
This  is  another  of our   high-grade
mines which has been re-opened  the
past month.   This property has yielded
enormous profits to the owners from tlie
grassroots.   Ore is now being sacked by
Howard Thompson and a small force.
The lessees of this property, C. A.
Bigney et al., have broken down a large
quantity  of Al  ore.    A shipment of
twenty tons will be made in a few days.
The lucky leasers of this ground made
enough from their initial shipment to
hold a substantial balance alter putting
in *. 1000 to exploit tlieir holdings.     A
crosscut is   being  driven   which when
completed will given them a good area
for stoping.   There is a large quantity
of clean galena on sight In the drift,
which will  be left standing until the
crosscut tunnel is completed.     A car of
ore "extracted in the process of development now lies in the bins.
Neil and Alex. McMillan and Angus
McGillivray of Queen BesB fame have
just secured a lease of the above group
from Brandon Brothers, and a start has
been made.   There is ore to begin on,
Two shifts are working at this mine,
which is reported to be showing up fine.
Messrs. Duck, Orchard and Baskerville,
of Milwrukee, inspected the property a
few days ago, and to our representative
expressed themselves as delighted with
the ore body and the development work
proceeding. Tliey also said that twenty
men would be put to work in a few
weeks. Mr. Duck, purchased for cash
several interesls iu Cody mining property held by John McKaskill.
A steady output is kept up by the

reports aro to hand are the Corinth,

Not a Fish Story-A Fact.
There is one lake in the Kootenay
which contains myriads of rainbow-
trout, and he would indeed be a poor
disciple of Isaak Walton who failed to
lure a few dozen to his hooks at any
time in Bear Lake. On Sunday last a
party of Sandon anglers, Messrs, W. T.
McClurg, S. J. Towgood, T. McAllister
and J. J, Atherton journeyed down and
whipped the water for several hours.
On counting up the days' catch the nett
result was, McClurg, 849; Towgood 271;
McAllister 88; Atherton 51. The poor
catch of the last named iB attributed to
the fact of his cooking tbe lunch and
having charge of the " bait." The total
catch of 754 should be a sufficient inducement to any tourist who is looking
for a quiet spot for a fair days' sport.

As proof positive that the wave of
prosperity which rolls toward Sandon
has already kissed this city, we might
mention that one of our leading merchants informed us this week that his
business for the past month more than
trebled that for the corresponding month
of last year, and that the present month's
sales would double last month's. He
claimed tbat last month was the best
one with him for four yeara. He ia a
good advertiser, and we hope in five
yeara he will own a departmental store

items are especially hard to rnn down.
How many times, dear reader have
you been approached by the newspaper man for an item and told him
you knew nothing of interest. Probably at that time your wife was away
on a visit or someone from out of town
was visiting at your borne. Of course
you didn't mean to deceive the scribe,
y-*t when you received your paper
you wondered why your wife or
friends were not mentioned. A good
way to avoid this is to inform ua
of the fact or drop a note in the Post
Office to the paper. One item may not
amount to much, but several columns of
such news is the life of a local paper.

The German historian, Professor
Theodor Mommscn, was noted for the
facility with which he acquired languages. The tongues of modern Europe as well as the classics were to
hlm not studies, but tbe familiar tools
of bis dally work. An American reporter who was interviewing hlin some
years ago asked to have a certain reference put Into Knglish, as he did not
read German well.
"Not read German well? And you n
Journalist?" exclaimed the savant. "I
do not see how it is possible. Young
man, German ls one of the four necessities for a student. The other three
are English, French and Italian. Without them you can never know the tendency of modern thought. If you have

When the Review joined the people
of the Slocan in the fight for better
terms from the C.P.R., it did so with
its eyes open and fully cognizant with
events which led to the reduction of tbo
passenger service to a tri-wcekly one,
and we do not 'propose at this stage of
tbe fight to throw up the sponge and
cry quantum Buflicit because the railway company has granted tbe prayer of
residents of the four lakeside towns and
reverted to a daily service. Sandon demands a daily mail servi.-e and it will
continue to emphatically voice its demands, yea, even unto the Railway
Commission. When Mr. Coleman visited the Slocan prompted by a spirit of
enquiry, be unburdened himself in a
communication to the Sandon Citizen's
Committee as follows: " Will watch
business closely, and first indications of
revival will put on additional trains."
Tbat revival no one will deny has begun.
During the past month we have kept
close tab on the trains, and we feel confident the increased business will cause
the Divisional Superintendent to redeem
Iiia pledge.
From the Nelson Daily News of the
19tb inst.. we cull the published interview with Mr. D. C. Coleman:
" The result of the agitation started
by the people of Slocan lake and of
Sandon, which was backed by tbe Nelson board of trade was announced yesterday by Superintendent Coleman of
tbe Canadian Pacific. He said: " After
a careful conference with Mr. Wliyte
and Mr. Busteed and a careful examination of the whole of the circumstances
we have determined to give the Slocan
lnko pooplo just that which they asked
for, which was a daily service. That
service will start from Slocan City. Ou
tbe three days in the week when the
tri-week!y service between Rosebery
and Nakusp is conducted, Monday,
Wednesday and Friday, the steamer
will leave Slocan City in the morning
and will take up passengers to Rosebery
to cinnect with the line to Nakusp.
There they will be able to make connections with the Arrow Lake boat and
go through to tbe coast Calls nill be
made going up to Silverton and New-
Denver. The steamer will then turn
round and go back down the lake, calling at both places on its way. In the
afternoon, after the arrival of the train
from Nelson, another trip will be made
up and down the lake, calling at Silverton and New Denver. On the trip
down the lake passengers coining in
from Nakusp and the coast will be
brought toany po!nt on the lake. Thus
on tiiese three days there will boa
double service as before the alteration.
On the other three days of the week
when the boat -:0'8up in the morning
she will not call at the way points. On
her return down she will do so. Aleo
on the afttmoon trip, after thc arrival
of the Nelson train, sbe will call at all
way points but will not do bo on her return from Rosebery on the second trip
of the day. This is arranged in this
manner for the purpose of allowing the
steamer to handle more expeditiously
the freight which has largely increased
of late. No, this docs not mean that
we are going to put in the winter schedule. Privately I am of the opinion
that the winter schedule is the one that
will, in tbe long run, come to be permanently employed, judging from the
conditions of tbe country, but just now,
at all events, we will handle the passenger traffic Irom Nelson and points
east, ns well as from Rot* .land and the
Boundary by way of Robson and the
Arrow Lakes.
"As far as the service between Rosebery and  Nakusp is concerned,   it will
einain tri-weekly, although freight will
go irregularly every day. A passenger
may take chances if he care! to and
avail himself of that. As far as Sandon
is concerned there has been no alteration except in so far as the daily service
on tbe lake has made the diSerence desired."
Commenting on tlie above the News
goes on to say;
It is understood that the change will
partly meet the desires of the Sandon
people, but the chief alteration desired
by Sandon waa the laying over of the
train from Nakusp at Three Forks, just
below Sandon, rather than at Rosebery,
but in this our esteemed contemporary
is at fault. At the present time the
train lays over at Rosebery, Three Forks
being a flag station. We contend that
the most economical and advantageous
point for a roundhouse ia Sandon. The
train could leave here every morning**
for Rosebery, and a daily mail service
and connection would thus be once
again established at no great expense to
the company and to the intense satisfaction of the public. For three daya a
week tbe train makes two trips a day
from Rosebery to Sandon, but one of
these trips���the first���is abortive for tbe
reasons (hat there arc no connections
to make at such an early hour, and on
account of the train laying over at Rosebery (nearly halfway between Nakusp
and Sandon) which entails a useless
trip to this city, after which a few minutes later it turns round and begins its
real and legitimate days' business.
Even if the company cannot see its way
clear to running the train through to
Nakusp, it can at no increased expendi -
ture give thiB important point a daily
connection with Slocan Lake by establishing a round house here. It follows tbat the freight could be just as
expeditiously handled on the three off
days passengers were not conveyed beyond Rosebery.
We commend this point to tbe consideration of tlie powers that be, as
we have every confidence in the executive ability of Mr. Coleman to Btraighten
out the tangle with credit to himself
and to the satisfaction of the travelling
public generally.
We snipped the following from tlie
Cranbrook Herald:
" The Sandon Review is happy
now that there is a prospect of
better terms in the Slocan on the
part of the C.P.R. The Review
has done great work to bring this
about and is entitled to a lot of thc
Our excellent contemporary has a very
observant attitude, and it but. echoes
the sentiment of manv admirers who
have penned us cheery words of congratulations on Slocan's victory and for
the strong stand we took in the fight.
When we issued the fiist number of our
now established weeekly excitement our
outlined policy was to stand as the
spokesman|for)lhe people of tbe district,
and in all matters appertaining to the
common good to fight the good fight.
During our eleven months existence we
have had no cause to complain of the
paucity of "scrap0," in which by a
combination of circumstances we have
always managed to be at tbe winning
end at the stick, but whether we will
secure the " credit" which 'Brer Simp-
sou maintains we are entitled to, the
closing month will decide. There are
those whose standing a Is. in this paper
have been to us our existence. There
are such, however, we regret to say,
whom a goose couldn't graze after, but
when they realize that we are mere -nary to expect a quid pro quo for
services rendered to the community as
a whole they may jar loose. Wc wish
to remark that the paper id not on n
paying basis, and were it not for our
rustling job orders and compe'ing with
cheap John outfits the Review would
have been relegated to Gehenna or the
literary bone yard some months ago.
Now, its up to you, Mr. Merchant and
Messieurs Subscribers to commune with
yourselves before this paper icaches its
52nd number. Yon can have every
confidence iu our doing the right thing,
and wc conclude by quoting from the
Salutation in No. 1, Vol 1.: " We will
do our part; will you dnyuU'S? "
[It must always be diminclly understood
that the E litor is not responsible for
the opinions of correspondents, nor
does he always agree with them.]
Dear Mr. Editor.--As a matter of
public interest, I think the following
should be inserted in your paper, and
in asking you to insert the item I feel
that were vou to do so it might meet
the eye of officials in high places and do
some good.
On Wednesday evening last I traveled from Rosebery to Sandon by the
C.P.R., and a man, whose name I afterwards ascertained wns Brandon, aleo got
on the train. He carried witb him a
grip and a hand saw, which he deposited under tbe end seat of the coach out
of the way. Acting under instructions
from the conductor, a brakeman swooped down on the articles to take tbem
into the express car, but the owner
rightly and strenuously objected to any
such graft being worked, and he took
the two articles into the scat with him.
The conductor came along and prepared
to seize the articles, but the owner refused to part with them. This brought
about a scene, and the passenger was
put in a most humiliating position. I
heard him tell the conductor to either
put him off the train or else go about
bis business and quit tantalizing him,
but the conductor eviilently thought it
was his business to antagonise a respectable member of Ihe traveling public,
for to my wuy of thinking nnd the general opinion also of my fellow travelers,
the conductor had no right to openly
attack a passenger against whom it is
asserted lie bears a petty grudge. Now,
Bir, I am a commercial man, and I have
travelled by rail very many thousands
of miles, but I bave never yet witnessed
anything to compare with the autocratic
action of the being who is head push on
the Sandon-Nakusp run. My point,
sir, is this, and oue as a drummer I
wish emphatically to emphasise, that
if it is the custom on this run for the
offii-ials to lake out of the possession of
a passenger any small articles and
levy express charges on them, then the
sooner it is advertised the belter. For
my part I should refuse lo allow the
articles to leave my possession, and in
consquence I should dread being put
in the same humiliating pos'tion as my
fellow passenger of Wednesday night.
I am, dear sir, yours truly,
Louis E   Devbrkox.

"Of course, your hlghuess,"'
said Baldos, deep apology In
b's voice, "Ravone is woefully
misinformed. He Is honest in his belief, and you should not misjudge his
motives. How he could have been so
blind as to confound you with that
frisky American girl���but I beg your
pardon. She Is to be your guest. A
thousand pardons, your hlghuess."
Sbe bad beeu struck dumb by tbe
wording of tbe note, but bis apparently
sincere apology for his friend Bet her
every emotion Into play once more.
While he was speaking her wits were
forming themselves for conflict. She
opened the campaign wltb a bold attack. "You���you believe me to be tbe
princess, sure enough, don't you?"
But with all ber bravery sbe was not
able to look bim in the face.
"How can you doubt It, your highness? Would I be serving you lu tfie
present capacity if I believed you to be
any one else?"
"Ravone's warning has not shaken
your faith ln me?"
"It bas strengthened It. Nothing
could alter the facts in the case. I
bave not, since we left Ganlook, been
ln doubt as to the identity of my benefactress."
"It seems to me that you are beating around tbe bush. I'll come straight
to the point. How long have you

"What!" he exclaimed, drawing back
in well assumed horror. "Do you mean
���are you Jesting? I beg of you, do
not Jest. It ls very serious with me."
His alarm was so genuine that she was
completely deceived.
"I am not Jesting," she half whispered, turning very cold. "Have you
thought all along that I am the princess; that I am Grenfall Lorry's wife?"
"You told ine-fciat you were the princess."
"But I've never said that I was���wu
any one's wife."
There was a piteous appeal ln her
voice, and be was not slow to notice it

"But what is to become of me if yon

a long pause. "I can no longer serve

It did not seem so entertaining after
all, this pretty deception of hers. Down
in his heart, underneath the gallant ex.
terlor, what was his opinion of her?
Something was stinging her eyes fiercely, and she closed them to keep back
the tears of mortification.
"Miss Calhoun," he snld, his atiine*
changing swiftly, "I have felt from tbe
first that you are not the Princess of
Graustark. I kuew It an hour after I
entered EdelweiBB    Fran* save _n�� ��

"You bave known it so long?" she
cried Joyously. "And you have trusted
me? You have not bated me for de

"I have never ceased to regard you

"But Just a moment ago you spoke of
me as a frlaky American girl," she said
"I bave used that term but once,
while I have said 'your highness' a
thousand times. Knowing that you
were Miss Calhoun, I could not bave
meant either."
"I fancy I have no right to criticise
you," she humbly admitted. "After all,
it does not surprise me that you were
not deceived. Only an imbecile could
bave been fooled all these weeks. Every one said that you were no fool. It
seems ridiculous that it should have

The   Drug   Will  Stupefy  Some   People

Comparatively few persons know
what opium really 1b. When they turn
to a dictionary and glean therefrom
that it ls tbe "inspissated Juice of tbe
somniferous poppy" tbey are still like
ly to be ln the dark.
The process of obtaining it ls to
score tbe pods at fixed intervals during
a certain period. The milky liquid
which comes out soon turns a darker
hue and thickens and is then scraped
off and molded into cakes, witb poppy
leaves for an outside covering.
It was ascertained from evidence nf
forded to the Indian opium commission
of 1890 that ln some states of India
not a few of tbe natives took as much
as forty to eighty grains of opium
dally and tbat consumption of forty
grains was common.
Contrary to tbe impression that death
results from a sudden cessation of the
habit, it bas been proved tbat when
confirmed opium eaters bave been im
prisoned for awhile and thereby deprived temporarily of their favorite
drug tbelr bealtb has not usually suffered.
The article bas a varying effect on
different races and constitutions, exciting some and stupefying others, it

state of torpor if he takes it plentiful
ly and not infrequently causes tbe Malay to run amuck. It bas been record
ed tbat tbe Javanese regularly took it
before going to fight so as to work
themselves up to a pitch of excitement.
Most of tbe drug that is imported
iuto England is mncb stronger than
wbat ls ordinarily consumed ln India
and imported into China. The stipulation of tbe British pharmacopoeia is
that all opium used medicinally sball
yield at least!)._ per cent*of anhydrous
The morphia percentage in much of
the opium prepared in India for con
sumption tbere and exportation to China is less tban balf this specific
strength. This is a detail which novelists who are addicted to poisoning their
characters should note.
It ls rather striking that opium does
not seem to be largely resorted to in
.rutin oa o. moans of uu'cuie. The evi
dence of tbe largest insurance company was to tbe effect tbat after twenty years' experience there the company
had decided that it was not necessary
to impose any extra premium on Unlives of moderate opium users.���Cham

Eighteen   Men  Sit on  Python   While
Operation  Is  Performed.
Feast day for Salome, the longest
aython in the Zoological Park, proved
to he the busiest day the attendants
lave had for many months and tlie
iveliest occasion in her career. After
'-11 arrangements had been made to
.'eed a brace of rabbits to the twenty-
lour foot serpent the discovery was
nade that fourteen of the snake's
teeth were decayed, and the intended
least became a tooth pulling.
Salome eats only once in a while.
Her last feast was on New Year's
Day, when the attendants forced five
"abbits down her throat. A peculiar
���estlessness during the last few days
*^d the attendants to believe that she
as feeling the pangs of hunger again
md plans were mado to feed her more
rabbits. Three were dressed and tied
together, Salome was untangled and
hoisted into a corridor and twelve
Iturdy men were instructed to range
themselves along her coils. Dr. Dit-
mars stood by with a ten foot pole,
to be used-in placing the rabbits in
the proper place, nnd at the proper
moment tbe jaws were pried open.

Up to this point Salome hnd been a

jaws wero forced slie writhed and

and while eighteen men sat and stood
on tiie snake, which made desperate
efforts to switch its massive tail and
wiggle out of the grasp of the impromptu dentists, Dr. Ditmars drew

Salome was left in a rather ugly
mood, and no effort was made to
force upon her the delectable feast
that had been prepared. Instead she
was carefully rolled up into the conventional coils and was carried back
to her cage. Dr. Ditmars expects she
will recover from the operation and
will be an improved python.
Tn two or three weeks she will be
fed���if her condition is normal. If
the feast were deferred for several
months it would not worry Salome, the
attendants said. Eating is the least
of her worries.

An  Ancient Office.
Almost as ancient as the office of
Lord Chief Justice of the realm iB th-t
of Master of the Rolls, to which S.r
Herbert Cozens Hardy has just been
appointed. The master haa precedence over all the other judges of t' e
Supreme Court of Judicature, wi.h
the exception of the Lord High Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice, next
to whom he ranks alike in dignity
and emolument.
One hears of the master of the rolls
already at the beginning of the thirteenth century, and there is no doubt
that in tbe origin he had charge of
all the patents, and grants, and writs
issued under the great seal, and that
he often fulfilled the duties of tbe
Lord Chancellor and Keeper of the
Great Seal during the letter's absence.
In fact, at one time lie used to be
known ns the Vice-Chancellor. Formerly he was eligible to a scat in the
House of Commons, but he was deprived of this privilege, enjoyed by
no other member of tbe judicial
bench, by an act of Parliament passed in IS73, debarring nil judges of the
High Court of Justice, Court of Appeal, from sitting in the House of
Commons. He has custody of all the
national records, which date bacl for
more than 1,000 years���since times
prior to even the Norman conquest���
and which, comprising Doomsday
Rook, are preserved in a huge building known as the Rolls house, which
opens on to Chancery lane through
an arched gateway.
It is precisely on account of his
���keepership of the state records that
the Master of the Rolls is more frequently consulted by the monarch
than any other law officer of the crown
on points concerning his prerogatives
and duties as sovereign. He receives
a salary of $30,000 a year, which is
$5,000 more than the lord justices, or
the judges of the High Court of Justice, and is usually created a peer
of the realm on his retirement or promotion, which latter fate has overtaken that genial Irishman, Sir Richard Henn Collins, who now becomes
Lord Collins, and who will be remembered in this country as .one of the
arbitrators of the Venezuelan bound,

seventy-two songs, which have all
been selected to suit naval requirements. The first is, as one might imagine; the National Anthem, and the
book closes with, "Off to Philadelphia."
Other old favorites contained in the

"Tom Bowling," and "They All Love
Jack." Of course, the sister countrie"
are all represented with songs, nn<J
those of Scotland, Ireland, and Waltr
respectively are "Bonnie Dundee,"
"Father O'Flynn," and "Men of Harlech." Instructions have been issued
to all naval and marine bands to obtain a copy of this book.

Made  Well  and  Strong by  Dr.  Williams'   Pink   Pills  After   Doctors   Had   Failed
Mr. H. W. Await is one of tie*
leading  merchants   of   Heinford,  N.
S. A few years ago he was a great
sufferer from that most excruciating
trouble, sciatica. He says: "At
the time I wns afflicted 1 was living
nt Baker Settlement. The attac't
was so severe that I hud been off
work for some (ime. The cords of
my leg were all drawn up and I
could only limp with the aid of a
stick. The pain I suffered was terrible. I was in misery both dtiv and
nipht. Every moment caused me
such pain as only those who hnve
been tortured witli sciatica can
know. 1 was treated by several doctors, but tbey did not help me n bit.
In fact I almost began to feel thnt
my condition was helpless, when
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills were
brought to my attention. I got ii
half dozen boxes. I had used about
the entire quantity before 1 found
any benefit. But I was encouraged
and got a second half dozen boxes,
and before these were all gone
every vestige of the trouble had dis-
appeared, Not only this, but I wns
improved in health in every way, ns
it will be readily understood that
the long siege of pain I had suffered had left me badly run down.
I can't speak too highly of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I can't recommend them too strongly to other sufferers."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure sciatica simply because they make the
rich, red blood that soothes and
strengthens the jangled, aching
nerves. That is why they cure such
nerve troubles as neuralgia, St. Vitus
dance and partial paralysis. Thnt
U why tliey cure nil ailments due to
poor, watery blood. That is wby

Is Madame Dis de Barr, Famous Wo,
man Convict.
"Mother Elinor," sometimes known
as Mrs. E. L. Mason, head of the
Flying Roller Colony, of Detroit and
Windsor, Ontario, has been proven
beyond all doubt to be none other
than the notorious Anne Dis de Barr.
Also it has been learned that she was
known in England as Editha Loleta
Jackson, where she served time with
a man reputed to be ber husband for
a serious offence.
The Editha Loleta Jackson, of Lon*
j don, was positively identified os the
"Mother Elinor," of Windsor. F. E.
Swinden, a member of Mother Elinor's cult, made the identification in
a sworn statement.
Madame Dis de Barr was liberated
last August on ticket-of-leave from
Aylesbury Prison, in England, to
which she had been sent on Dec. 20,
1901, sentenced to seven years' penal
servitude for connection with an alleged immoral cult of which her reputed husband, Theodore Jackson, was
the head. It was her third imprisonment during a singularly sensational
career. For years she had been known
as the "notorious" Madame Dis de
Her Trump Card.
The trump card of her life was probably played when Mme. de Barr
wheedled Luther K. Marsh, the New
York lawyer, out of a fortune and
made him the laughing-stock of bis
old ago. In the seventies she traveled about America representing herself
as a medium who could reveal hidden truths. While living in Madison
Square she met Mr. Marsh. By means
of alleged spirit manLestations and
spook-painted pictures she so infatuated the old man that he gave her
large sums of money and deeded to
her his house in Madison avenue.
There she officiated as a priestess of
spiritualism, and got fame and more
Finally she was sued for conspiring
to defraud Marsh. The grand jury indicted her, the Geny Society took
her children, she was convicted and
sent to prison. After experiences in
Europe after her release she turned
up in Chicago and under the name
of Vera P. Ava was sent to the Joliet
penitentiary for two years. Free

Flag For Canada.
A new design for a Canadian flag
has been prepared by Mr. Ernest Gir-
ardot of Sandwich. The design includes a Union Jack in the upper left
corner, a beaver and maple leaf below and perpendicular bars to represent the nine provinces of tbe Dominion. The groundwork of the flag
may be either white or read.
"I think it is time, now that we
have just added two new provinces to
the great Canadian confederation, to
adopt a new flag, a national emblem
that every Canadian citizen may cherish and revere, one that has no objectionable features for any race or
creed, and one on which every province is equally recognized," writes
Mr. Girordot.
''Herewith is a design for a Canadian national flag which, in my humble opinion, embodies all the desirable features which should pertain to
the flag or standard of the Dominion
of Canada.
"The Union Jack on the upper left
corner represents our fealty to England and (he tie which binds us to
her. Our emblems, the maple leaf
and the beaver, dear to all, are preserved. Each perpendicular bar represents one of the nine provinces.
When any other province will be
created another bar may be added to
the flag.
"I believe I am saying the truth
when I state that there is not one per
cent, of the Canadian people who
know or understand the semi-barbaria
symbolisms expressed by the coat-of*
arms which appears on our present
"We are asserting ourselves more
and more every day as a distinct nation. The glowing importance of our
commercial relations with foreign
countries and the glorious succera we
hnve achieved through our participation at the Liege and Milan exhibitions, where we have given evidence
of Canada's greatness and inexhaust.
ible resources, demanded that we
should without any further delay
adopt a national flag, one which does
not recall any conflict between any
of the races which compose the Canadian nation or remind one of any tra*
dition cherished by one class of people and hated by another ��� a flag
which does not symbolize any particular creed, but oue that is an emblem of peace and prosperity."

"The sanitation of the towns and
villages of Ontario is in a very backward state of repair; more especially
in regard to a proper sewerage equip-
tient. There are 450.000 people, most
iy recruited from rural districts, who
ire congregated in these centres in
-uch  a  manner  as  to cause the soil
0 be thoroughly polluted. The greal

"It is estimated that $4,000,000spent
ipon this work by tlie iu��i�� oi On.

could well afford to contribute at least
51,000,000, or 25 per cent, of the cost.

The following T��ry -valuable prescription, by an eminent and success-
j ful physician, will be appreciated by
i many who are suffering from la grippe,
; cold, cough, pneumonia, or any throat,
| long or stomach trouble, or run-down
system, as it is a certain cure, and
| will save many a doctor's bill. It is
| almost a certain preventive as well: ���
j "When you feel that you are taking
' cold or have chilly reeling or aching
1 in any part of the body or head, or
| feel weak, tired, dissy, unfit for work,
Sain in the head or back of the neck,
o not neglect these dangerous symp-
I toms, but send immediately to your
druggist and get a bottle of Psychine
(pronounced Si-kecn), and prepare aa
"Psyohine,  2 teaspoonfuls.
"Sherry, whisky or water, 9 tea-
"Choice of the latter can be mad*
according to the judgment and preference of the patient.
"Mix thoroughly and take regularly   each   meal   and   at   bedtime."
This prescription has been used in
thousands of cases and has been so
universally successful that a number
of leading physicians regularly prescribe Psychine in their practice for
any of the above troubles, or any rundown, wasting or constitutional difficulty. It is the most reliable and
valuable home remedy. It tones np
the entire system, giving a feeling of
youthfulness and vigor, adding many
years to the life of those who use it.
" Years ago I was almost a physical wreck and
was sufferin. with lung troubles. Frlondi and
neighbors thought I would never get better. I
began to despair myself. Losing faith ln my
physician, I procured another one who recommended the use ol PSYCHINE. It was surprising
beyond description the effect it had. I seemed to
_am with every dose. Inside of two weeks I was
able to attend to my housework again. There
are no symptoms of consumption about me now."
