Election of Rip* Trustees.
f- It is gratifying to note the healthy
financial conditi in ol tin* New Denver
Skating Rink, which bu Id ing is also
in a splendid condition. This is a town
ass.*t, built by volunteer labor and sub-
SOiiption, and every winter the building
i-1 rented by a local man, who makes a
substantial clean-up ami the trustees
aro thus able to keep the building in a
good Elate of repair.
Although Iho climatic conditions now
enjoyed in New Denver are far removed
from wintry in thc accepted sense of
the name, yet there arc many who
would willingly welcome a. visit from
Jack Frost and his accompanying train
of painful Inflictions, so ns to have
opportunity ol participating in that
most exhilarating of all pastimes:
A well-attended meeting was held on
Tuesday night, when the election of
trustees for the season took place.
Messrs. J. T. Black, A. Jacobson nnd
II. Cue were the choice of the citizens,
and they ure now gc'ting everything In
shape so as to be ready for the hist
cold snap.
The secretary reportod a substantial
Card of Thanks.
The New Denver Lodge K. of P. wish
to convey their heartfelt thanks to all
who contributed by their efforts to
make their recent Concert ar.d Ball so
great a success, and particularly are
thants extended to tho ladies who
provided the excellent refreshments.
As Clear as Mud.
After reading the findings of Justices
living, Morrison and Martin in the
Star-White case, we in common with
the average lay leader reluctantly admit
we do not Bavvy what the two last
named judges are talking about. We
hone the day .U not far distant when
all legal writing) and liiiuings viill be
couched in good old public school language, and then tlieie will be something intelligible for the people and all
the lawyers will be cither policemen or
tinhorns. Our mad staff lawyer has
handed in the f.How ing:
���' I am buuml to admit that tlie black
fifsuie, which in composed of nitroglycerine, blackjack, graphite, nagya-
giic, inelaconlte, -porous plaster and
other breakfast foods, hits the apex on
the extralateral, therefore whereas
moreover Harris to wit makes it stick,
which to me is as clear as mud (Bee
Nonh vs. Moses vie. ii, sec. 2 p. 3 a, e,
i, o, u, and w and y s metimes); but
ii White had a ace._iii the crosscut and
cji'dwood was two and a half a rick, as
in Adam vb. Eve cap. 6J_ (see Fcx's
Book of Tomatoes), then all will agree
that Ihe party of the first part is, or
should be, particularly so, and if not
why not (as in High vs. Low. Jack and
Game). Judgment Bhould be held up
sine die, status quo, ora pro nobis and
Harris should Bet 'em up."
At Hymen's Attar.
A pretty wedding was celebrated on
the 26th ult, at the Manse, Greenwood,
by the Rev. Mr. McKee, when Duncan
W. Stuart, a popular young man in the
mechanical depaitment of the Granby
mine led to the altar Miss Beicie Florence Radcliffu, eldest daughter of Daniel
Radcliffe, for many years an esteemed
resident of New Denver. The happy
couple are now spending their honeymoon in town.
Injured Man Progressing.
Upcm enquiry at the Slocan Hospital
this morning, wo learned that the man
Hiram Selnivei* who was so badly injured by falling with an ore car over
the dump at tlie Standard mine last
week, is progressing favorably and now
on the road to recovery.
The Sick List.
E. Brookmln, a deck hand from the
steamer Slocan, was admitted to the
hospital ou the 4th inst. witli apparent
symptoms of typhoid fever.
F. Whitfield, an employee of the
Hewitt mine who has been an inmate
of the hospital suffering from severe
blood poisoning ol the hand, returned
to the mine on Wednesday last.
John Cameron, teamster, of Silver-
ton, who has also been treated for erysipelas of the hand, has returned to
J. C. Bolander has nearly finished
stumping his new fruit ranch in the
uppertown, but a couple of big stumps
are causing him some trouble owing to
his having nothing to anchor to. He
is now in tlie bills hunting for a goat
to butt them out���a white one for preference.
It is quite on the cards that a well-
known merchant from a nearby town
will shortly consolidate with one of our
prominent merchants.
When next the C.P.R. thinks of publishing a pamphlet or fulder illustrative
of thc benuty spots for tourist travel,
we would certainly like to take a hand
in its compilation. The world would
tiim learn something about" Bounteous
Slocan " and lead less about that joint
on the main line where the drunks go
to cool off.
While in F.astc Canada they are

Eddie Angrigiion brought into our
sanctum some luscious ied raspberries

to press last week. They wero in fine
condition and lacked nothing in flavor.
Herbert Cue was out after big game
last Wednesday, but whether he shot
anything is neither here nor there, as
Johnny McDonald remarked when he
missed the target at the annual rifle
The most encouraging news from the
Boundary was received with great
pleasure by the people of the Slocan.
Witli the Granby mines and smelter

far rosier than was anticipated a week
The Sandon suit of Forrc3t vs. Smith
and Treves will be tried this week at
Nelson. The plea is for an order for
cancellation of mortgage, which if
allowed will givo plaintiff and partners
right to sell the ore mined by them at
the Payne whilst working under a sublease from thu defendants.
Bluebird in Ore.
From the Bluebird comes most excellent reports. This property has been
shutdown for several years, but this
summer a lease and bond was obtained
by a syndicate oi local men consisting
of Messrs. P. and It. McLanders. J. A.
McKinnon, It. Turner and A. Forrest,
and di if ting on tho lead they have
struck 20 inches oi galena ore, a car of
which is now sacked for shipment.
Ore Struck at Goodenough.
A few months ngo we reported that
the Goodenough group had been bonded by a syndicate of Sandon miuing
mon, whose program was to crosscut to
the rich Rei'O-Goodenough ledge, from
which the richest car of oie said to have
b"er. shipped from the district was extracted. The crosscut at the time of
the syndicate taking up the property
was in 200 feet, and this has now been
driven for another 300 feet. We have
it fom what ne consider a reliable
source that eleven inches of ore lias
been struck, but wc do not think that
they uie in far enough yet for the main
ledge to have been tapped. The ore is
of a much lower grade.
The Christinas Show.
Through the courtesy of Mr. T. T.
Raukine, our representative was permitted to witness the first act ot the
grand operatta, " The Four-Leaved
Clover " one evening this week. This
operetta is now in eourse of preparation
by tho sehool children under the con-
duotorship of Mr. Rankine, the school
teacher, assiste 1 bv his talented wife.
We confess to icceiving a surpii e that
will linger pleasantly long in our
memory; indeed, it is one of the sweetest musical feasts served up by an
aggregation of school children it has
beeh our lot to hear. There are in all
about eighty performeis whose training
will on the night of the 24th inst. be a
source of pride and pleasure to parents
and the public generally who are lucky
enough to be present.

Blaze at Silverton.
Last Sunday evening the cabin
owned by Tom McKochnie, situate
near the Silverton wharf was totally
destroyed by fire. Although the building was not a large one, the flames lit,
up the lake for many miles around,
and mnny citizens of New Denver took
to saddle horses and rigs and hastened
to our sister town to render assistance
fearing that a blaze ot more considerable dimensions was in progress.
The outbreak   was caused  by the
owner upsetting a lamp.
The newly formed Quadrille club is
meeting with the approval of the girls

found the floor of that commodious
building crowded with merry dancers.
The music was supplied by MisseB
Sinipkins, Kennedy and' McDonald,
and Mr. 0. Slattehrek. Dances are
held every Wednesday, and the membership fee is .2.00, ladies free.

Mudslide Near Alamo.
Passengers awaiting the arrival of
the 7.50 train at Sandon last Wednesday had eventually to board a hand-car
and be thus taken to about a mile and
a half east ol Alamo concentrator, whore
a slide of mud had come down the
mountain and crossed the track. The
mail sacks were also transferred iu this
manner to thc ordinary train which was
waiting at tho other end of the mudslide, and the passengers readied the
wharf hereon time. A lnrge crew of
men cleared the track in time for the
return trip at night.

Spokane, Dec. 5.���Seen at his offices
in the Empire State building last night
with regard to the recent decision in
the Star-White case, Byron N. White
said he would contest the claims of the
plaintiff to the court of last resort. He
added there is little doubt that tie
Privy Council will bo asked to sit finally on the case. His company believed that a more dispassionate consideration of tho enso could be had in
England than in Canada.    He said:
" We have not been making this
fight for six years for tho fun of it, and
wo will not continue spending money
just to keep the case in court. We bo-
lievo we are in the right, that in the
end the highest court of jurisdiction In
Great Britain can not fail to deal out to
ua the justieo which we have so long
sought. To that end we believe that
the first favorable decision of Chief
Justice Hunter and tho recent dissenting decision of Jmlgo Morrison will not
bo without influence."

Slocnn Star mine, was in from Spokane
on company business this week.
Logan MePhee was among the visitors
this week from Whitew-atr**.
J. G. Duck has returned from a trip

We are sorry to report that John
McKaskill, of Cody, is laid up at the
hospital with bronchitis.
" Hello, Central I Give me Cody."
The 'phone line has again been opened
up between that point and Sandon after
a protracted shut-down.
The Reco mine sent out another car
of high-grade eiiver-lead ore to Trail
smelter this week.
Will Jaffery left this morning for a
trip to Golden, B.C. He also expects
to pay hie folks in  Eastern Canada a
visit shortly.
On Tuesday night an enjoyable dance
and supper was held in the M.U. hall,
in honor of Miss Mary Mclntyre, who is
leaving for Vancouver with her parents
very shortly.
"Harold, keep off my toe " is beard
quite often at the dances now. Harold

Ern. Towgood left with a string of
pack horeos and mules for Lardo this
week, where they will be put to pasture
for tbe winter.

Sunset now to Cody.
Alex. Forrest and partners have gone
to Nelson to attend court as plaintiffs
in tho mining case igainst Smith and
Treves. Wm. Bennett Is also in Nelson
iu connection with this case.
Owing to the curling rink building
collapsing under lho heavy pressure of
snow last spring, the curling club,
which also owns the skating rink, nro
trying to come to an amicable arrangement with tlie skaters wherein they
will both havo throe nights a week. So
far the skaters have turned down tho
proposition Ior tho reason that they
would not havo access to the centre of
the Ice, whicli would bo reserved for
curling, and that it would debar them
from playing hockey. There is ulso a
disagreement as to the division of concurrent oxponses, and the outlook for
a winter's fun for tho girls and boys Is
very gloomy.

When Boys Were Boys.
Nothing is as it was in those good
old days. Then a boy was a boy, he
wore overalls and was dressed for
work. He had half a day's work to
do before going to school and another
after his return, and you could kick
him ton feet and he would bound back.
Now a boy is a "kid." When he gets
ready to go to school he can't carry in a
pail of water for fear of spoiling his
clothes. If he gets home before the
evening meal is��done, something is
wrong, and If you keep him home after
8 p.m. you will require a atling gu-n.
Then the clothing was all made at
home, and the only way you could tell
which was front or rear was to watch the
forpiece of his cap. The clothing was so
that he could turn round in them after
they were on and thus fool his friends.
Our sisters worked and helped to cook
and wash and mend and all oth-sr work.
Now they have luck if they get duds on

The girl must knock a few stars out of
the piano or organ and the boy must
"Bpeak his piece" and look like a sick
monkey begging for raisins. Everything is progressive.
They used to gst married for two

The bride made her own clothes and

and had a chunk of salt-pork for de3crt.
Tho whole community would work sixteen hours and then go to a "shindig"

They had no "brainstorms," "heart

"Brainsto-ms" were curol wi'h a

called "fits" and appendicitis was called
bolly ache. They rolled the patient on
a barrel or rubbed with a hot brick,
and no ono knew he had a vermiform
doflicker that was liable to get full of
chug stoneB or ground cherry seeds.
We used to eat soup and have "Bass"
ot all kinds. Now we have fruit salad
and consomme and biscuits made from

Our Fruit Growers' Column.
Any person who undertakes the
planting of an orchard in the Slocan
country, will he certain before long to
find himself face to face with the problem of how to (obtain a sufficient supply
of manure so that he might bring this
land to the highest possible degree of
fertility. I believe that tho best lands
in this neighborhood are eminently
adapted to the growth of fruit, largely
owing to tlieir splendid natural drainage
but we must recognise the fact that this
advantage of a gravelly and open Buh-
soil tends to mako them particularly
difficult to keep supplied wiuh manure;
tbey are what is known as " hungry
soile." Generally speaking there will
be little necessity for undcrdraining
hero. If more underdrainiug was nocos-
sary, there would probably bo lets manure required. Let us then consider
the three possible sources of manures
to fertilise our lands. First there is
barn yard manure, of which there is
fortunately a fairly good supply, and*
which wo shall learn in time to value
moro highly and to tako better care of
bo as to prevent its being worked by
the action of the sun and rain. The
second source will bo obtained from
various green crops that we shall grow
for the express'purpose ol ploughing under and thus increasing the fertility and
improving the mechanical textnro or
condition of the soil. Chief amongst
these crops will be thc various clovers,
peas and beans. The third Bourca will
be obtained by trying artificial fertilizers
and applying these scientifically to
supplement the deficiencies in tho soil
of the different forms of nutriment required by the plants, for plants in this
respect are like ourselves and they
must be fed an all round diet to supply
tlieir different requirements of their
roots, stems, leaves and flowers. We
should starve to death on an exclusive
diet of lean beef, however excellent Mr.
Clever's steaks may be, and no vegetarian however enthusiastic, would
preach an unvaried diet of soda-crackers
or pumpkins.
The researches of agricultural ch��m-
ists have proved that there are various
elements which must be present in the
soil, and without any one of which,
plant life is simply impossible. Some of
these, such as iron, we may safely assume to be present. Another one, lime
is also probably abundant, but tho fact
needs to be proved, and I would venture to appeal to our eminent friend
Chas. Twigg, who has lately taken a
course of agriculture at the Ontario
Agricultural College, to take upon himself the thorough testing of the soils of
this neighborhood. He would need to
get a number of Bmall samples of the
soil from the head of the lake, from
Rosebery, irom Mr. Cropp's ranch, and
from New Denver, and so on all down
and around the lake and Slocan River
valley. He would; need toJ observe
whether the country rock underlying tbe
soils was of a granitic or shaly character
and then by a simple experiment witb
a very small amount of hydrochloric
acid and a few test tubes he could settle
this important question for all time in
this neighborhood. I shall look forward
to publishing tho results of his experiments with great interest in the near
Wo may also got a great amount of
valuable information as to the requirements of our soil j by forwarding a similar set of samples of soil to tho labra-
tories so wisely provided by tho Canadian government; the collection and
forwarding of these samples would bo a
most excellent work for tho children of
the senior school under the direction
and supervision of Mr. Rankine, it is
possible tliey might reap a reward even
iu th is would by partaking of finer and
moro abundant fruit as tho result ol
their public spirit. The experiments
and tOBts to prove tho presence or absence of lime in the soil might also be
most profitably used as a lossou in nature study.
In succeeding articles I hope to discover tho other funns and sources of
fertility for our soils.

Can we Apply it Here ?
Nearly all mining camps havo
"boom" times, and also periods of depression, and the Slocan camp has been
no exception to thc usual course of
events. New life has been infused into
dead or languishing camps In various
ways. About the limo when Butte,
Mont., was losing piestige as a gold-
silver camp, the fact was discovered
that it was really ono of tho greatest
copper camps on earth,
Sudbury, Ont., was struggling along
as a third rate [copper ramp when
Bomoone noted that it was a "bonanza"
nickel producer. Leadville, Colo., has
had all sorts of ups and downs, aud
moBt of the notablo camps all over tho
world have troubles much tho aame as
a normal child haa croup, measles and
se on.
The Slocan is hardly likely to be'trans-
formed into a gold or copper camp, but
that it has good chances of yot becoming a really great silver producer is a
certainty, as a result of two recent
great improvements, one in the metallurgy of zinc and the other in the treatment of complex silver bearing ores.
In Mexico to-day, American mining
companies ure slowly but surely solving
the problem of treating complex low
grade silver ores, such as occur in large
bodies in the mines of the Granite area
in the south end of this district; therefore before long, lively times and prosperity may again prevail along'the dry
ore belt of the Slocan.
It is a possibility of the near future
that zinc ores may bo reduced to spelter
locally; for it is now a certainty that
zinc ores can bo smelted by use of electricity and that the cheapes place to
establish a plant is where water power
is available. The Slocan has both zinc
ores and complete water power.
Regarding the local treatment of silver ores, such as occur abundantly in
the granite area here; theso will undoubtedly be amenable to the same
methods of treatment as similar ores
now being treated with much success
in Mexico.
The least complex of these ores are
crushed and slimed, and then thoroughly agitated, in special tanks, by means
of compressed air, a solution of cyanide
having previous been added to the
The silver in the Blimed ore is extracted by the cyanide solution, which is
then separated from the pulp or slimes
by means of filter frames, the silver
afterwards being precipitated from the
cyanide solution  by chemical means.
Ores contaning refractory elements or
minerals such as galena, zinc blende,,
antimony, arsenic, etc., are after crushing, passed over BloWly moving belt
concentrators which are capable of
holding very fine metallic particles, the
slimes going over to the agitation tanks
In the usual way.
In Mexico, the electro-cyanide idea
appears to have gone to the "hocus po-
ens" pile as no mention is made of the '
Pellatan-Cletacy, Parks or Hendry x' "
proces��es; however it is possible that
after the cyanide solutions have extracted the silver content from the slimed
and agitated ore, that sonic form of
electric deposition of the silver may
prove more effective than, the filter,
frame, and the chemical prcclpltalion
melhod nov*. in use. Mining men in
this camp should carefully wntch tho
progress now being made in nre treatment in Mexico; as the Improvements
mode there will surely In tinio bring
new life and prosperity to the Slocnn
Lake section of this district.   ���

Tt was Guy who received her, Guy
who pointed to a chair, Guy who
seemed perfectly at home, and, naturally enough, she took him for Dr.
Holbrook, wondering who the other
black-haired man could be, and if he
meant to stay in there all the while.
It would be very dreadful if he did,
and in her agitation nnd excitement
the 6ube root was in danger of being
altogether forgotten. Half guessing
the cause of her uneasiness, and feeling more averse than ever to taking
part in the matter, the doctor, after
a hasty survey of her person, withdrew into the background, and sat
where he could not be seen. This
brought the short dress into full view,
together with the dainty little foot,
nervously beating the floor.
"She's very young," he thought;
'too young, by far," and Maddy's
chances of success were beginning to
decline even before a word had been
How terribly still it was for the
time during which telegraphic communications were silently passing between Guy and the doctor; the latter shaking his head decidedly, while
the former insisted that he should
do his duty. Madeline could almost
hear the beatings of her heart, and
;only by counting and recounting the
poplar trees growing across the street
could she keep back the tears. What
:was he waiting for, she wondered,
and, at last, summoning all her courage, she lifted her great brown eyes
to Guy, and said, pleadingly:
"Would you be so kind, sir, as to
"Yes, certainly," and electrified by
that young, bird-like voice, the sweetest save one he had ever heard, Guy
knocked down from the pile of books
the only one at all appropriate to the
occasion, the others being as fnr beyond what was taught in the district
schools as his classical education was
beyond Madeline's couimon one.
Remembering that the teacher of
whom he had once been for n week
a pupil, in the town of Framingham,
had commenced operations by sharpening a lead pencil, so he now sharpened a similar one, determining as
far as he could to follow that teacher's example. Mnddy counted every
fragment as it fell upon the floor,
wishing so much that lie would commence, nnd fancying that it would
not be half so bad to have him approach her with some one of the terrible dental instruments lying before
her, as it was to sit nnd wait as she
was waiting. Had Guy Remington
reflected a little, he wonid never hnve
consented to do the doctor's work;
but, unaccustomed to country usages,
especially those pertaining to schools
and teachers, he did not consider
that it mattered which examined tnat
young girl, himself or Dr. Holbrook.
Viewing it somewhat in the light of a
Joke, he rather enjoyed it! and as tht
Framingham teacher had first asked
her pupils their names and ages, so
he, when the pencil was sharpened
sufficiently, startled Madeline by asking her name.
"Madeline Amelia Clyde," was the
meek-reply, which Guy quickly recorded.
Now, Guy Remington intended no
irreverence; indeed, he could not tell
what he did intend, or what it was
which prompted his next query:
"Who gave you  this name?"
Perhaps he fancied himself a boy
again in the Sunday school, and
standing before the railing of the altar, where, with others of his age, he
had been asked the question propounded to Madeline Clyde, who did
not hear the doctor's smothered lnugh
as he retreated into tho adjoining
In all her preconceived ideas of this
examination, she had never dreamed
of being catechised, and with a feeling of terror as she thought of that
long answer to the question, "What
is thy duty to thy neighbor?" and
doubted her ability to repeat it, she
said: "My sponsors, in baptism gave
me the first name of Madeline Amelia, sir," adding as she caught and
misconstrued the strange gleam in
the dark eyes bent upon her, "I am
afraid I have forgotten some of thc
catechism; I did not know it was necessary in order to tench school."
"Certainly, no; I do not think it is.
I beg your pardon," were Guy Remington's ejucuhitory replies, as he
glanced from Madeline to the open
door ot the adjoining room, where was
visible a slate, on which, in huge
letters, the amused doctor had written "Blockhead."
There was something in Madeline's
quiet, womanly, earnest manner which
commanded Guy's respect, or he
would have given vent to the lnugh
ter which wai- choking him, and
thrown off his disguise. But he could
not bear now to undeceive her, and,
resolutely turning his back upon the
doctor, he sat down hy that pile of
books and commenced the examination in earnest, asking first her age.
"Going on fifteen," sounded older
to Madeline thnn "Fourteen and a
half," bo "Going on fifteen" was the
reply, to which Guy responded: "That
is very young, Miss Clyde."
"Yes, but Mr. Green did not mind.
He's the committeeman. He knew
how young I was," Madeline said,
eagerly, her great brown eyes growing large with the look of fear which
came so suddenly  into them.
Guy noticed the eyes then, and
thought them very bright and handsome for brown, but not so bright or
handsome as a certain pair of soft
blue orbs he knew, nnd feeling fl
thrill of satisfnetion that sweet Lucy
Atherstone was not obliged to sit
there in thnt doctor's office to be
questioned by him or any other mnn,
he said: "Of course, if your employers are satisfied it is nothing to me,
only I hnd associated teaching with
women much older thnn yourself.
Whnt is logic,  Miss Clyde?"
The abruptness with which he put
the question startled Mndeline to such
s degree thnt she could not positively tell whether she hnd ever henrd
thnt word before, much less could
.she recall its meaning, nnd so she
answered frankly. "I don't know."
A girl who did not know what logic
wns did not know much, in Guy's estimation, but it would not do to stop
here, and so he nsked her next how
ji".n** eases..thorp j-icre in LutlO-l.
MarM-v' felt "fh(* **hot _iTodb'*Tini.rilSg
to her very finger-tips, the examination had tnken n course so widely different from her idens of whnt it
would prohnhly he. She hnd never
looked inside n I.ntin ernmmnr, snd
Benin her truthful "T don't know,
sir." fell on Guy's ear, but this time
there was a hnlf-desnniritii? tone in
the voung voice usually so hopeful.
"Perhnns, then, yon enn ennjuente
the verb Amo." Guv snid. his manner indicntine the doubt he wu* he-
pinning to feel ns to her qualifications.
Mnddv knew well whnt "coniupnte"
meant, but thnt vrb Amo. whnt could

before? Mr. Rnrnintrton wns wnitine

with n pnsp she bepi-n ��� ''I nmo. thou
amor-st. he nmo<*s. Plnrnl* We amo.
ye or you nmo. they nmo."
Guy looked nt her ni?bnst for n sin-
pie moment, nnd then n cnmicnl smile
hrnko nil over his fnce. telling poor
Mnddy plainer thnn could words that
she hnd made n most ridiculous mistake.
"Oh, sir," she cried, her eyes wearing the lock nf tbe frichtened hnre.
"it is not right. T don't know whnt
it means. Tell me, tench me. What
is it to nmo?"
To most men it would not hnve
seemed a very disncreeable task,
tenehinp young Madeline Clyde "to
amo," ns she termed it. and some
such idea flitted across Guy's mind,
ns be thought how pretty and bripht
was tbe enger face upturned to his.
thc pure white forehead, suffused
with a fnint flush, the cheeks a crimson hue, nnd tbe pnle lips parted
sliphtly ns Mnddy appenled to him
for the definition  of "nmo."
"It is a I.ntin verb, nnd menns 'to
love,'" Guy said, with nn emphasis
on the Inst word, which would hnve
mnde Mnddy blush hnd she been less
anxious  and  friphtened.
Thus far she hnd answered nothing
correctly, nnd, feeling puzzled to know
how to proceed, Guy stepped into the
adjoining room to consult with the
doctor, but he was gone. So, returning, Guy resumed the examination by
asking how "minus into minus could
produce  plus."
Again Maddy was at fault, and her
low-spoken "I don't know" sounded
like a wail of despair. Did she know
anything, Guy wondered, and feeling
some curiosity now to ascertain that
fact, he plied her with questions philosophical, questions algebraical, and
questions geometrical, until in an
agony of distress Maddy raised her
hands deprecatingly, as if she would
ward off any similar questions, and
sobbed out:
"Oh, sir, no more. It makes my
head so dizzy. They don't tench that
in common schools. Ask me something 1 do know."
Suddenly it occurred to Guy that
he had gone entirely wrong, and mentally cursing himself foi thp blockhead the doctor had called him, be
asked  kindly:
"What do they teach? Perhaps you
can enlighten me?"
"Geography, arithmetic, grammar,
history, and spelling-book," Madeline
replied, untying and throwing off her
bonnet, in the vain hope that it might
bring relief to her poor, giddy head,
which throbbed so fearfully thnt all
her ideas seemed for the time to have
left her.
This was n natural consequence of
the high excitement under which she
was laboring, nnd so, when Guy did
ask her concerning the books designated, she answered but little better
than before, and Guy was wondering
what he should do next, when the
doctor's welcome step was heard, and
leaving Madeline again, he repaired
to the next room to report his ill-
"She does not seem to know anything. The veriest child ought to do
better thnn she has done. Why, she
has scarcely answered half a dozen
questions  correctly."
This wns whnt poor Maddy heard,
thouph it *wns spoken in a low whisper; but every word was distinctly
understood and burned into her
heart's core, drying her tears and
hardening her into a block of marble!
She knew that Guy had not done bet
justice, and this helped to increnso
the torpor stealing over ber. Still
���she did not lose n sylloble of whnt
was saying in the back office, and her
lips curled scornfully when she heard
Guy remnrk: "I pity her; she is so
young, and evidently tnkes it so bnrd.
Maybe she's ns good as they average.
Suppose we give her the certificate."
���""Then Dr. Holbrook spoke, but to
poor, dazed Maddy his words were
all a riddle. It was nothing to him
���who was he that he should be dictating thus? There seemed to be a
difference of opinion between the
young men, Guy insisting that out ol
pity she should not be rejected; and
the doctor demurring on the ground
thnt he ought to be more strict. As
usual, Guy overruled, nnd seating
himself at the table, the doctor wns
just commencing: "I hereby certify " while Guy wns bending ovm

huskily, pointing to the dotttor. "It

henrd ynu sny so. I do not wnnt to

Her voice failed her, her bnsom
heavi-d. and the clinking sobs came
thick and fnst. but still she shed no

was a look which made both those
voung men turn nway involuntarily

Guy brought her the easy-eh'tlir
from the front room and placed it
fnr her by the window. With a faint
smile Bhe thanked him and said
"You are very kind," but the smile
hurt Guy cruelly, it was so sad, so
full of unintentional reproach, while
the eyes she lifted to his looked so
grieved and weary that he insensibly
murmured to himself: "Poor child!"
as he left her, and with the doctor
repaired to the house, where Agnes
was impatiently waiting for them.
Poor, poor little Madge! Let those
smile who may at ber distress; it was
the first keen disappointment she hnd
ever had, and it crushed her ns com
pletely as mnny an older person has
been crushed by heavier cnlamities.
"Disgraced for ever and ever," she
kept repeating to herself, as she tried
to shake off the horrid nightmare
stealing over her. "How can I htild

There was n heavy fall, and while
in Mrs. Conner's parlor Guy Remington nnd Dr. Holbrook were chnt*
ting gayly with Agnes, a childish figure wns lying upon the office floor,
white, stiff,  and  insensible.
Little Jessie Remington, tired of
sitting still nnd listenng to what hei
ninnimn nnd Mrs. Conner were saying

The F'ngging Energies Revived���
Constant application to business is a
tax upon the energies, and if there
be no relaxation, lassitude and depression are sure to intervene. These
come from stomachic troubles. The
want of exercise brings on nervous
irregularities, and the stomach ceases
to assimilate food properly. In this
condition Parmelee's Vegetable Pills
will be found a recuperative of rare
power, restoring the organs to healthful action, dispelling depression and
reviving the Hugging energies.

A Severe Case of Rheumatism Cured
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
"For many weary months I suffered untold agony. 1 could not wulk.
1 could scarcely raise myself to a sitting posture. I was under medical
care, but in vain. Finally I tried
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and they
have restored me to my former healthy condition."
This strong statement was made to
reporter recent'y by Mr. Charles S.
Keddey, formerly of Kignston, N.S.,
but now living at Port Maitland.
Mr. Keddey is a carpenter by trade
and is now able to work every day.
He adds: "I cannot speak too highly
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, as tbey
cured me after other medicine failed.
While I was living at Kingston, N.
S., I was seized wilh rheumatism in
its most violent form. I was compelled to take to my bed and for
months was an invalid. I was so
weak that it was difficult for n,o li
raise myself to a sitting posture. It
is impossible to tell how much I suffered day and night, week in and
week out. The pains were like pWc-
ing swords. I had medical attendance, but it fuiled. Then I tried
medicines advertised to cure rheumatism, but with the same result-
money wasted. One day when hope
had almost gone a friend advised me
to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I
told him my experience with other
medicines but he assured me that
these pills would cure rheumatism, so
I sent for a supply. After using a
few boxes I wus able to leave my
bed, and from that on my restoration to health was rapid. I am now
as well as ever I was, and have not
had the slightest touch of rheumatism since. The change they have
wrought in my case is simply miraculous and I can strongly recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to any
one suffering from any form of rheumatism."
Rheumatism is rooted in the blood.
Rubbing the aching limbs with liniments and outward remedies cannot
possibly cure it. You must get the
rheumatic acid out of the blood and
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is the one
sure medicine to do this, because
they actually make new blood. That
is why these pills cure anaemia,
headaches and backaches, neuralgia,
indigestion and the secret ailments
that make miserable the lives of so
many women and growing girls. Sold
by all medicine dealers or by mail at
50 cents a box or six boxes for
$2.50, from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockvi'le, Out.

It's Very Easy if You Only Know Hovi
to Do It Properly.
Castor oil should never be given
without first heutiug it a little. This

a burning spoon into the little mouth.
The object of heutiug is merely to thin,

do this. This change ulone makes the,
liquid go down more easily.

second Is when ynu gently hold the Infant's nose, whicli you are to do Just
as you put the oil well back luto his
mouth, but not In the thYout, which
would then cause hlui to choke.
Holding the nose destroys tlie sense
of taste, and the wet compress causes
a flow of saliva that helps to send the

to success Is that nil shall be doue to-

little one swallows it unconsciously.
If medicine In II powdered form ls to,

Why They Do Not Succeed In Their
It seems strange that so few women
succeed ns photographers, for women
prefer to go to their own sex to be
photographed rnlluM* than to uu obviously "professional" mnu whose attentions remind them uncomfortably of
those of a dentist.
The trouble with the feminine photographer ls that she endeuvors to be
too artistic, at the expense of the
wishes of hor patrons? People get
their pictures taken because they desire a likeness, nnd they do not relish
nn impressionistic portrait vanishing
Into the shadow. Furthermore, she
disregards her subjects' individuality.
She should first of all try to find out
how they Imagine they look���u very
different thing from their actual np-
pearnnce���nnd then strive to attain
that Ideal. She must somehow make
a nervous, disheveled, unattractive
woman a miracle of charm, and all
without such gross flattery as to cause
None of the other feminine arts will
come amiss In her makeup. She must
know just what clothes and what alterations In the dress will work the,
transformation, and she must lu a way
play the hostess aud put her subject
at her ease.
It Is diificult nrt, but those who
do succeed find thnt In every wny they
nre repaid fer the trouble It took them,
to reach tbelr present status. And tho
best of nil ls thnt the overaesthetlc
photographer will find that by suppressing her early "artistic" tendencies she has arrived at that true art
which ls only expressed ln simplicity
and naturalness.

Best Ways to Wind ,Wool.
Wool for knlttln.-er crocheting should
never be wound very tightly Into a
hard ball, as this makes It thin and
poor. Some Rood knitters merely unwind the skein Into a soft heap, but,
this method Is only possible where
there Is no fear of entanglement, as If
the heap of wool be disturbed It soou
gets Into a hopeless tannic. A better
plan Is to wind the wool over three or
four fingers of the left hand held outside the ball. These fingers shonld be
gently withdrawn at frequent Intervals to change the position of the ball.
Wool thus wound ls always soft and
full of thread.

From the System���Both Kidneys and Bowels Are Restored To Action By
There are three ways, and three
only, by which the system can be
rid of poisonous waste matter--the
bowels,  tbe kidneys  and  the  skin.
The bowels are named first, because on them falls the greater part
of this work, and so long as they do
their duty there is seldom trouble
with the kidneys or skin as excretory
When the bowels fail, however, and
become sluggish and constipated
there is work thrown on the kidneys
which they have no business to do,
and which they cannot do (for any
length of time without becoming deranged.
Now there is only one medical
treatment which recognizes this condition of affairs, and that is Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. This is,
so far as we know, the only kidney
medicine which regulates the bowels,
as well as the kidneys, and thereby
removes the cause of trouble and
cures the most complicated cases.
You can scarcely find a ease of kidney disease which does not begin
with liver and bowels, ana which
could not therefore have been prevented by the use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills.
Thousands of people are ready to
testify to the superiority of Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills as a cure
for kidney troubles. The reason of
their efficiency is found in their action on the liver and boweis, as well
as the  kidneys.
; Mr. K. B. Dixon, McGillivary, B.C.,
writes:���'I have found Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver    Pills    to    be    exactly
I what I need.   Since 1897 I have been
I on the construction of the Crow'B
Nest Pass branch of the C.P.R., employed in all capacities and exposed
to all kinds of weather. I contracted
a severe  cold,  then  pain  across the
, back,   and   owing   to   the   hard   fare
! we sometimes had to live on, the
liver got sluggish and out of working
I order. Dr. Chase's K-dney-Liver Pills
seemed to be the very treatment I
needed and they have made me well
again. I also used Dr. Chase's Ointment for Eczema lust summer. It
cost only sixty cents a box, but was
worth $60. The cure was complete."
Mr. James J. Jensen, Olds, Alta.,
writes,���"I have been troubled considerably with lame back, which I
suppose came from derangements of
the kidneys, and I have never been
able to find a treatment that was so
prompt aind effective in curing this
ailment as Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver
I Pills. At two different times in my
life this preparation has entirely
cured me of this trouble, and of late
years I have found it unnecessary to
use any medicine whatever.    I feel it
I iny duty to add to this statement to
tbe many others which I see in recommendation of this excellent medicine."

covered with pimples is unsightly.
It tells of internal irregularities which
should long since have been corrected. The liver and the kidneys are
not performing their functions in the
healthy way they" should, and these
pimples are to let you know that the

Buried For Six Days.
A most extraordinary case of murder has occurred in the Betu district
if the Central Provinces. One Damn
Gaiki had a sick wife, and, tired ol
ittending to her wants, took measures
to get rid of her. Putting her into a
cart, he drove her in the direction of
i neighboring village. On the road
he took her out and, while she was
nearly unconscious, buried her in a
'tole which he dug. Not having the
locessary implements to dig a proper grave, he covered her with leaven
and stones, and returned home. Five
lays afterwards a grazier, watching
his cattle near the place, observed
that the animals shied at something
ind ran away. He went to see what
"it was, and heard a noise from what
���ppcared to be a grave, above which
the twigs and stones seemed to move.
He was frightened and went away.
Vext morning the katwar was told of
'he mysterious grave, and, calling together a few people, went in search
*f it. The party soon reached the
spot, and while they were talking
.bout the parson buried they heard
her say,."Are Ram; I am not dead."
They then went near and discovered
'.he still living body of Dama's wife.
3he was asked how she came to be in
mch a plight, and replied that her
husbnnd had buried her because she
was ill. The villagers, however, did
nothing to rescue the woman, but sent
*!or her relations, who came and ex-
'ricated her from her premature grave.
She was sent by the police t-sjios-
oital for treatment, and her husband
was searched for and arrested. The
woman lived for thirteen days after*
wards. How she lived without food
or water for five or six days, half
buried beneath sand, leaves, and
.tones, is a mystery.

Rev. J. H. Taylor, a vicar of a

The opening words of the clergyman were indistinct, but when he
read: "I commit theBe people to thp

imazed. began expostulating with the
minister, whilp the bride wept.
The clergyman insisted on resuming the service, and this time he be-
���jan with: "I baptize theBe people
with water."
The wedding party then made him
.caist. and some of the members rode

was located in thp northern region of

Result of Crusade for Their Protection
���Battues of Sparrows and Finches.
The-protection of birds in England
has reached such a stage that they
have become a nuisance, and now it
is not unlikely that a systematic war
will be wag3d on them. The complaint is not of the game birds, which
pay in Bport and in the market. It
is the little feathered creatures that
are bothering the farmers and gardeners.
Of course the sparrows are the
worst. They have grown to millions
in the southern part of England, and
the Kentish farmers have had to organize battues to reduce their numbers, as they were devouring seed und
grain, and destroying fruit to a ruinous extent. Tens oi thousands of them
have been shot or caught with birdlime.
In Hertfordshire, just north of London, the bullfinches are the worst offenders, swarms of them darken the
air and settle down on the fields and
in orchards. The statement made is
that they absolutely denude the trees
of fruit.
Each apple or pear has only a little
peck taken from it, but it is thrown
to the ground and rendered totally
unmarketable. The farmers and fruit
raisers here talk of organizing formal hunts, to thin out the flocks of
birds. Starlings have also become extremely numerous, and are badly in"
need of slaughter, the country people
The pigeons are the only birds constantly shot all the year around in
England, and in spite of this, their
member never se,?ms to diminish. In
one farm outside of London the proprietor reports that he shot 340 pigeons in a single day.

the Government for the establishment
of a scientific system to combat the
increase in sparrows, finches, starlings,
crows and pigeons in the interest ol

Only Four Words.
A minister was delivering an eloquent sermon to his flock at a small
church in a village on the sea coaBt.
In the middle of the sermon great
excitement was caused by someone
bringing the news that the drift from
a large wreck was coming in. The
c-mgreeation rose at once, and bsgan
hurriedly to leave the church to get
their share of the spoil.
The minister, distressed to see his"
congregation hankering so much after
the things of this world, to the neglect of the higher things he had to
offer, implored them, with great fervor, to stay and listen to him, as he
only had four more words to say.
Touched by his great earnestness,

the' pulpit. He walked to the door,
and, stunning oidside qnietly, said:

An Odd Old English Law.
There is a law an the statute books
of England designed for the protection
of the persecuted male sex which no
man has ever had the courage to invoke. It was pissed during the reign
of Queen Elizabeth when Parliament
solemnly enacted that "nny woman
who, from that date, would deceive or
cajole into matrimony any of the subjects of Her Majesty by the use of
false hair or any other thing false in
connection with her body or by the
use of paints or cosmetics would be
ounished aa for fraud and deceit, with
intent to cause harm."
Witch Doctors.
A curious jase of "witch-doctoring"
occurred recently near Vryheid, in
Natal. A boy belonging to Chief
Kembi's tribe returned to his kraal
from Johannesburg sick, and Man-
ousi TJhlongdwa, a learned Kaffir "doctor," diagnosed his ailment as madness. A hole was dug in the clay,
deep enough to cover the patient to
his shoulders, and bundles of wood
were put into the hole and set alight.
After tho wood had burned for on
hour water was thrown on the fire,
causing clouds of steam. The patient
was placed in the midst of this heated
furnace, and carefully covered with
a cowhide. One witness said the
steam escaping through an op?ning ol
the skin, severely burned him on the
arms and shoulders; so that the state
of the unfortunate patient was obvious. The "dofttor" said they could
take the man out when he became unconscious, but they found him dead.

The common ailments, while few,
are liable to arise at any time. The
best-kept horses, and those receiving
the least care, are alike liable to the
ordinary troubles, as spavins, ringbone, splint, curb, lameness, cuts
and bruises.
It is well for horseowners that*
these diseases all yield to the same
remedy. This dependable remedy
which is very inexpensive is Kendall's
Spavin Cure: Even the most stubborn cases, which veterinaries have
failed to relievp, yield to Kendall's
Spavin Cure.
In the thirty years in which this
reliable remedy has been used by
farmers, stockmen, liverymen, nnd in
private and racing stables, it has
given complete satisfaction. Certainly those who own horses are not
consulting their own best interests il
they do not keep a bottle of Kendall's
Spavin Cure in the barn.
Dr. -B. J. Kendull Co., makers ot
this famous preparation, publish a
book entitled "A Treatise on the
Horse and. His Diseases" which is
invaluable to those who want to keep
their horses well and save veterinaries' bills. A copy may be obtained
at most dealers or will be sent free
by addressing the above company at

Vill be Abolished Within Fifty Years
Says Scientist.
The abolition of consumption and
ail epidemics within fifty years, is the
jiomise made by a well known scientist.   Prof.  E.   P.ay   Lankester.
The wiping out of all epidemics���
'.hink what it would mean! In the
.fourteenth century 25,000,000 peraons
lied in Europe in the Black Death
ipidemic. The great plague in London in 1_64 carried off 63,596 persons
out of a population of 460,000, and the
mortality probably would have been
at least twice as great if one-third of
the population had not fled to escape
the pestilence In 1656 the plague
carried off 300.000 persons in fiva
months in Naples and vicinity, passing the following year to Rome, where
14,000 died, and to Genoa, where there
were 60,000 deaths.
Great progress has b*>en made since
thon in sanitary science, and visitations of the plagut now are rare. But
the death-roll of smallpox, cholera,
bubonic plague, yellow fever, diphtheria, and other epidemics, is an appalling proof of man's ignorance of
sanitary laws.
The weekly mortality statements issued by the Chicago department of
health show consumption and pneu*.
monia almost in variably at the head
of the lists as the causes of the greatest nivmbir of deaths, A movement
of practically national extent has beeu
started to check the ravages of consumption, sometimes called the
"white plague." Special hospitals
and open air camps have been established for the treatment of consumptives, and the results obtained thus
fnr have been encouraging.
One of the most startling theories
advanced by Prof. I.anltoster is that
disonse is a product of civilization.
Furthermore he points out that the
only wild animals which become diseased are those which come in contact   with  domesticated  animals.
The savages before they came in
contact with civilized men, were robust and stroi'C. without disease, but
vit.h the coini"*? of missionaries and
'raders came the diseases of civilization, which are rapidly wiping out the
savage peoples. He cites, for example, the measles, a comparatively
harmless disease among civilized
races, which was introduced by Europeans with deadly results among the
natives of the South Sea Islands.
Prof. Lankester is of the opinion
that the causes and cures of all germ
diseases and epidemics can be discovered within fifty years if sufficient
support and eneburagement are given
lo scientific men who are giving their
whole talents and energies to investigations which promise to make mankind practically immune to such diseases. He tells of examining in the
Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1905, the
minute spiral thread discovered in
that,_year by Frit���. Schaudin, and call-
���-Sd by him spirochaeta pallida, since
altered to spironema pallidum. This
organism has b"en shown to be the
cause of "the most terrible and widely
spread of human diseases, destroying
the health and strength of those
whom it does not kill, and damaging
the lives of their children, so that
it has been said that thia malady and
the use of alcohol as a beverage together, nre responsible for more than
half the diseajre and early death ef
the mature population of Europe."

pointedly ceased talking until the student sat down.

The Thumbscrew Ordeal.
William Carstairs, the Scotch divine who for fourteen years served
William III. as confidential secretary
and adviser in chief, had been implicated in the Rye House plot, a conspiracy to assassinate Charles II. and
place Monmouth on the throne. He
was put to the excruciating torture of
the thumbkins, or thumbscrews,
which he endured heroically, without
confessing or implicating others.
After Carstairs became the private
adviser of William he was presented
with the instrument by which he had
been tortured. The King, wishing to
see the measure of fortitude necessary to endure the terrible torture
without making a confession of some
sort, placed his thumbs in the inach
ine and told Carstairs to turn the
screw. He turned slowly and cautiously.
"It is unpleasant," said King William, "yet it might be endured. You
are trifling With me. Turn the screw
so that I may really feel pain similar
to that you felt."
Carstairs turned the screw sharply
The King cried out, and when released said that under suoh pain he
would h"ve confessed to anything,
true or false.
