The first of what is to be hoped will
be a large number of visitors to the
glacier this year were Herbert Cue and
myself. We set off last Friday���an unfortunate day, as must he admitted by
those w ho took part in the picnic of
that day���for it rained steadily most of
lhe time, and rain overhead and wet
brush underneath are not cunducive to
the proper appreciation of the delights
of mountain climbing, In spite, however, of the adverse conditions, good
progress was mado, canin being struck
for the night at the foot of the second
falls (Blunionauer Fall-).
The work done on the trail last full is
a tremendous help on the way. Most
folks know where Table Rock is and
already the trail is a considerable distance beyond. Indeed, were the way
opened to the top of the first falls, and
tbere is no one who could not then make
the trip. The way from the present
end of the trail to Thomson Falls is
through fallen timber whicli forms in
dry weather au excellent pathway, and
one who has the nerve to use the
sidewalk from the Bank of Montreal to
the Melhoilist Church need have no fear
for there they run greater lisk cf fractal es, etc., than they would on the
sound, fitm logs. But a trail will be
better, and thu Town Improvement So-
cieiy hope this year, by getting together
bees of willing workeis, to push the

Between Thomson and Bluemenauer
falls there is a level ttack through whicli
the creek wends its way -slowly and tortuously, flanked by trees of large size
with numerous tracks of deer running
to lho water at various spots.
We crossed lhe fiat on the left side of
the stream, but the proposed route for
the trail is on the right, and I would
like to tuggrst that this be adopted if
for no other reason than that it would
leave the creek amidst its natural sur-
rouudiugs and thus be a constant beauty
spot. A g'a'ier is a good tiling to go to,
but if tin* way thitherward presents
spots chaim ing to the eye, lhe value of
the journey is enhanced.
Blumenauer Falls at this season presents a charming picture. Over lhe
horseshoe ridge there arc streaming no
less than seven waterfalls and the
effect of the early sunlight p'nying on
tiiese can be more c.isily imagined than
described. The ascent to the flat above
Blumenauer Falls is very easy, and the
entire lime occupied in getting thence
to the glacier is only about three hours.
Between Blumenauer Falls and the
Glacier is an extensive flat on which is
a tarn as lovely as anything I have
ever seen. It ia almost circular, and
from its edge the trees ascend in unbroken ranks. Inlo it flows a brook

could forget he is in the midst of
mighty mountains, and almost fancy
himself in the Tio.'sachs of Scotland���
the scenery for a moment loses its
grandeur taking on a daintiness of
beauty which more than anything
marks the Scottish hills.
Unfortunately, because of the depth
of snow and our entire unacqnaintance
with the location of the crevasses,  we
did not cr���s3 the glacier. Though in
this we were disappointed, yet our
journey was amply repaid by tho magnificent view got from the altitude at
which we were. I never was more
reminded of some of the sceneiy in the
Southern Alps, but conld almost fancy
I was looking down on Lakes Wiikatipu,

From a spectacular point of view it
will indeed be a pity should this dress
be lost.
Though we saw everywhere numerous tracks of deer, all the game we
actually did see wa9 two goals, and perhaps it would be as well, Mr. Editor,
���to remark that we were not at lhe time
looking iu a mirror. They were very
much surprised at our appearance���so
surprised in-leid that they would not
move till urged by the peisuasive influence of a stone.
I was astonished at the variety of
flora I met- and I ccitainly would like
to have had a little more time to examine it. All the varieties of flowers
we have already had this season are in
full bloom in the higher altitudes���
yellow violet, bur-marigold, wild sunflowers, columbine in most delicate
tints uf yellow, etc., etc. Besides these
there were many entirely new to me.
Near the top, heather, both white and
red, grows in profusion, so tbe epithet,

R. W. MOERAN, Managei
The people of tbe Slocan united yesterday in giving a fitting* welcome to
tlieir premier, tho Hon. R. MeBride,
and parly. Before noon a number of
visitors from Sandon and Three Forks
came into town to join in the welcome.
At 3.45 the special train conveying the
premier, Mr. VV. Hunter, Hon. Dr.
H. E. Young and Hon. F. J. Fulton,
steamed into Rosebeiy. There they
were met by the fleet of New Denver
launches, and a beautiful sail down the
lake to Silverton was thoroughly enjoyed by the distinguished visitors.
Their arrival at Silverton was heralded
with a royal salute, and was awaited
by a large crowd. After Mr. Hunter
had introduced the guests to the citizens, tlie premier delivered a brief address in which he heartily thanked the
people for the cordial welcome which
was given to him and his colleagues,
and characterized the visit as one that
would long live in their memories.
Whilst he wished to emphasize that
the visit was strictly non-political, he
would venture the remaik," that in
throwing in tlieir lot with the present
administration, by returning a Conservative member in the person of Wm.
Hunter, the Slocan had best served its
own interests.
Three cheers and a "tiger" were
then called for the Premier, which were
enthusiastically given, as was another
for Mr. W. Huuter. The party shortly afterward left for New Denver.
As the Ministers approached the Bosun Hall, the children of New Denver,
under the leadership of Mr. Rankine,
broke into a patriotic song, which, followed by an exhibition of physical drill
and another chorus, won loud enconi-
ums of praise from the bystanders. Dr.
Voung, Minister of Education, addressed
the children, expressing his pleasure at
tlieir efficiency and complimenting* their
teacher on his work. Later in the evening Mr. Fulton claimed that the children's exhibition ehowed the good results of the School Ac', in that when it
was passed, New Denver waB the first to
take advantage of it, and by raising the
salaries uf their teachers obtained a
high standard of proficiency.
The public meeting was held in the
open air, a wise proceeding, as the
numbers present on such a hot night
would have rendered lhe hall almost unbearable in the course of tlie proceedings. Mr. Hunter, our local M.L.A.,
presided, and on the platform be.-Mes
the Premier, Dr. Young, and Mr. Pulton, were Mr. Taylor, M.L.A. for Revelstoke, and Mr. Schofield, member for
In a few words Mr. Hunter introduced
tlie Premier, who in opening, referred
t.i the splendid day's entertainment provided for himself and patty, stating
that the uniqueness of it and the spon-
tauiety made it exceptionally pleasing.
After complimenting the Slocan for
having at the lust election shown that it
was side by aide with the majority of
B.C. he went on to contrast conditions
in the Province now with what they
were on his assuming oflloi\ He pointed out, that instead of an erayty treasury, imminent bankruptcy, and a lack
of credit in thu financial world, B.C.
had prospered to a marked extent. The
methods securing this were those which
would most usually imperil an administration, but the people recognizing thc
inevitable, had siood by him in spite ol
increased taxation. Thia taxation, however, he said, was levied not on the
workers but on corporations hitherto
incdeqtiately taxed. His government
had been called aC. P. R. government,
but could this epithet be applicable
when it was known that the taxes on
that corporation alone had been increased 500 per cent. He had been
warned that this policy would interfere
with the developcment of the country,
but what was the result? Ill the last
year or two and at present, there was
more railway construction going on iu
the province than there had been since
Ihe C. P. It. transcontinental was finished, and this was being done without
tlie cost to the province of a single dollar or an acre of land. In this connection he referred to the relations between
the Dominion and Provincial parliaments ovjr the question of a terminal
for the G. T. P., pointing out that by
an order-in-council from Ottawa, the
provincial parliament was expected to
hand over Indian reserve at Prince Rupert, though his government had absolutely refused, claiming, that should the
Indians surrender the land, it belonged,
not to the dominion, but lo the province
which must have a say in itB disposal.
The beneficial result of this could be
seen when it was known that the province now owned one quarter interest  in
the terminal and suburban land, the
revenue from which in succeeding years
help considerably in liquidating the entire public debt.
This policy he contrasted with the
policy in force when the local railways,
tho N. & S. ami K. & S. were constructed. This wns only done at the cost io
the province of thousands of acres of
land, aud in spite of this generous treatment, these railways not only gave an
inefficient service wliich was the cause
of constant complaint, but one of them
had actually threatened to cut off Sandon altogether from !t's svstem, surely
a desperate coudit'on of affairs. And
this condition had come about because
tlie interests of the people were not protected. He claimed that his government was a business government wilh a
business policy in its relations to railways, and that it was justified iu that
the railways pay five times the taxation, get no grant** of money or land,
yet there was moe construction going
on now than ever before in the history
of B.C.
Coming to local conditions and tha
possible recrudesence of mining properties in the district to the stale in whicli
it was fifteen or sixteen years ago, Mr.
MeBride pointed out that no new conditions were to be met, there was no
new mineral zone to be discovered, that
tlie price of minerals, especially of lead
and zinc, which abound in the Slocan,
was at present very low, The dominion
bounty would help, but only to a small
extent. His hearers could depend that
as Minister of Mines he could safely
proiniBo that the present government
would do all that could consistently be
done to aid tbis district.
The Premier went on lo say that
apart from mine resources the district
had a staple asset in fruit lands, and
that following the publiciiy methods of
tho government, lie hoped to see great
development in this direction.
Thanking the audience again for the
reception given to hiin and hiB colleagues, tile Premier sat d iwn amidst
loud and prolonged applause.
Mr. Young, who spoke next, referred
to the possibilities of the fruit industry
and then passed on to his own department, that of education. He claimed
thnt the School Act has justified itself
in the greater interest shown by the
people in its enabling the government
to extend the system and so encourage
settlement by providing educationa
He again referred in most flattering
terms to the local school, and spoke of
the high standing of the instruction
given there. He also mentioned that
a flag was to be provided, which was to
be raised and saluted by the children as
a constant reminder of what it stood
for and to inculcate pride in our country
both in itself and as a part of the great
est empire in the world.
Mr. Fulton emphasized the importance of the Irrigation question. He
stated his belief that the water clauses
Act could be amended to advantage,
but that this was not to be harshly
tampered with because irrigation was
practically in an experimental stage,
and hasty legislation might have to be
withdrawn within a short time. He
referred to the Commission appointed
last year and to the irrigation expert
engaged by the government and stated
that only the lateness in the receipt
of the report prevented the passing of
an act last session. It was his intention to publish an act almost immediately, that it may be read by the
parties interested so that their suggestions and criticisms might be had before legislation was enact d next session.
The meeting was also addressed by
Messrs. Schofield and Taylor, after
which the Premier moved that the
thanks of the meeting be accorded to
the Chairman, Mr. Hunter, and to the
Headmaster, Mr. Rankine, and to
those in charge of the proceedings.
The adoption of the motion closed what
all must admit was an enjoyable and
instructive gathering.
A nnblic banquet wns tendered to
the Ministers and this passed oil with
tlie greatest eclat in spite of the fact
that it was found necessary to curtail
it for the sake of those leaving by boat
for Silverton and SI ican.
A most successful and enjoyable
dance was held at Slccan in the I.O.O.F.
Hall on Friday evening lust. There
were several vi-itors from Silverton.
At midnight all the guests were assembled
and sat down to a sumptuous Fourth
of Ju'y champagne supper, generously
provided by that genial host, Frank
Griffith, proprietor of the Arlington
Hotel, and midst the popping of coiks
everyone made merry and voted him a
jolly good fellow.

arms, her eyes dimmed over, nnd she
would have fallen had Louis not sprung
forward nnd caught her in liis nrms.
Her beautiful head drooped upon his
shoulder, her breath wns warm upon
hi.*! cheek, and the sulitle scent of her
hair was in his nostrils. Her broad
white throat was thrown back, her
eyes nlmost closed, her lips Just pnrted
enough to show the line of pearly
teeth, her beautiful face not three
Inches from his own. And then suddenly the eyelids quivered, nnd the
grent blue eyes looked up nt him lovingly, nppenllngly, half deprecating,
half challenging, her whole soul lu a
glance. Did he move? Or wns It she?
Who could tell? But their lips hnd
met In a long kiss nnd then In nnother,
and plans nnd resolutions wero streaming awny from Louis like autumn

"Who, then?"
"Oh, I must not speak against her.
I will be civil for your sake even to
her, the widow of old Scarron."
"Yes, yes, you must be civil. I cannot have any unpleasantness."
"But you will stay with me, sire?"
Her supple arms coiled themselves
round his neck. Then she held him for
an Instant at arm's length to feast her
eyes upo-. his face, nnd then drew him
ouce more townrd her. "You will not
leave me, dear sire. It Is so long since
you have been here."
"I will stay," said he.
"And that carriage, dear sire, at the

"I have been very harsh with you,

"They nre hero, sire, upon the side

She swept out with triumph In her
eyes. It had been a terrible light, but
nil the grenter the credit of her victory. She took n little pink slip of
pnper from nn inlaid desk and dashed
off a few words upon it. They were,

A Common Error.
There is an error of speech that li
made by almost everylvody, educated

you? It is your intention to sny that
you do think, not thnt you don't think.
Therefore you should suy, "1 think I
Bhall not go tomorrow." It ts like misplacing the word "only" in such
phrases as "1 only read one book last
week," which should be, of course, "1
read only one book last week," the
"only" properly preceding the object
avt not the verb.���Chicago News.

Life In the Wild Days When Gun Plays

When There Was Always Safety In
"Leaving It to the Crowd."
The bold, reckless life of the frontier
of the middle years of the nineteenth
century and later has been often re-
cnlled by the stories of desperadoes
and bad men, but in thc birth aud
growth of the frontier cities Is a unique
phase of Amerlcau civic geuius which
has been little dwelt upon.
Most of the cities of the far west
bave hovered close about the gatherings of hnrdy miners as they came or
went ou a feverish search for gold. In
forty-nine 80,000 men from all parts
of the world reached the El Dorado
of California. Some traveled 2,000
miles overland; others went far around
by Panama or Cape Iloru. In fifty-
nine 100.000 gold seekers stampeded
wildly across tbe sunburnt plains of
Colorado. Only 40,000 stayed the year
through. Of like kind, although of
smaller proportions, were nil the pll-
grlmages thnt nre more or less responsible for the cities of the west, the
finding of a streak of magic yellow.
Its story leaking out and growing,
the glimpse of nuggets and specimens and then the grand, senseless
rush to the Land of Get-Rich-Quick.
Thousands of daring spirits were
drawn by the yellow loadstone, Intent

weird assemblages of tents, shanties
and log cabins, many of which grew
Into cities. Often full grown towns
sprang up In a few months. Far from
any state or territorial government aud
composed of a conglomerated herd of
excited men, none of whom bad time
for civic affairs, these embryo cities existed nnd grew under conditions that
were unique and extremely wild.
Our forefathers lunded on the enst-
ern coast full of religious zenl and a
desire for freedom of thought nnd life.
Their leuders nnd Inw came with them
They prayed nnd lived commuulstlcal-
ly as long as they could, then Increased, expanded nnd developed Into
a nation. But tbe gold discoveries of
Cnllfornin, Nevada, Colorado and Montana brought thousands of ludepend-
ent men to the wilderness who were
full of the hunger for gold, not homes;
who had no leaders, no laws to whicli
they could appeal and nothing to bind
them together. Then the leaders came
out of tin? crowd, nnd the inw grew ns
it wns needed. It wns only ufter a

from the nature of things, with so
much at stake ninong such hnrd living
men, there were plenty of fights and

Take Dr.   Williams'   Pink Pills
When the First Symptoms Are
Noticed and Save Yourself
Much Suffering.
Are you troubled witn pallor, loss
of spirits, waves of heat passing over
Hie body, shortness of breath after
s!i*-**!it exertion, a peculiar skipping
of the heart beat, poor digestion, cild
hands oi* foot, or u f'*olii _* of weight
and fulness? Do not mako the mistake of thinking that tiiese arc discuses in themselves and bo satislied
with relief for the time being.
This is tlio way that tho nerves
give warning that they arc breaking
down. It means thnt the blood has
become impute und thin nnd cannot
carry enough nourishment to tho
nerves to keep them healthy und
able to do their work.
There is only one wny to prevent
the final breakdown of the nerves
nnd the more serious diseases which
follow. The bloou must be made
rich, red and pure, and Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills is i..e only medicine that
can do this promptly nnd effectively.
Every dose of this medicine helps
make new blood and strengthens tlie
weak or worn-out nerves.
Mrs. David J. Titpley, Frederieton,
N. If., was cured by Dr, Williams'
l'ink Pills after suffering from nervous breakdown, which resulted in
partial paralysis of the face. She
says: "Thc trouble came on quite
gradually, and at the outset f did
not pay much attention to it. Then
it grew more serious, nnd there wns
n general breakdown of the nerves,
which was followed by partial paralysis of the face, one side being
completely drawn out of shnpe. 1
wns under a doctor's care for a couple
of months, and one treatment after
nnother wns tried without benefit.
By this time I wns confined to my
room und the doctor told me he could
not cure inc. Almost in despair 1
wns persuaded to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. The improvement was
slow, but the building up of a rundown nervous system naturally is
slow. Slowly but surely this medicine did its work, nnd nfter a time
I was able to again come down stairs.
From that time on the improvement was much more rapid nnd now
I am as well as ever I wns in my
life. My friends look upon mv cure
ns nlmost miraculous. Dr, Williams'
l'ink Pills did for me what the best
medical treatment failed to do���they
brought ine back good health.
It is the blood building, nerve restoring power in Dr. Williams' Pinl*.
Pills that enable them to cure such
troubles as anaemia, rheumatism,

partial paralysis and the secret ailments of girlhood and womanhood.

Hardest Labor Done by Females In
Many Parts of the World.
It is hard to go to any part of the
���vorld these days without finding women employed in many lines of work,
liven in civilized lands their occupations include cleaning streets, working in the mines, and running along-
lide of dogs pulling small carts.
Unwomanly as these tasks are, it is
'lothing to what women endure among
uncivilized people. There they are
held as property, forced to do all the
work while their husbands and masters devote themselves to making
elaborate toilets and passing much of
tlie time in pleasant idleness.
Among the lowest tribes in Australia 'women nre only the domestic
���slaves of their husbands, and do all
of the hard labor. They catch the
fish, turtles, crnblish, and shellfish
from the sea. The women work the
soil for yams and tomatoes, and gather the cocoanuts and bread fruits. The
men spend most of their time making
an intoxicating drink. When not
drinking they are having tlieir hair
dressed. If they find their wives neglecting their work they flog them severely.
Among the Mnori of New Zealand
woman's life is no easier. She builds
lhe hut, works in the field, makes the
alothes, cooks the food, and looks afler the children. In war most of tho
men are full of (ire and spirit, but in
limes of pence tliey lounge and sleep.
The Hottentots think themselves
lXCOOdingly clever. They put their wo-
'lien to work and they take life easy.
The favorite wny of punishing wives
is to add to tlieir labors. If a white
jomplains of tins the men sny, "When
wo give our women plenty of work we

Most of the lower African tribes bo-
'ieve woman nre good druges nnd no-
tiling more. The Kaffirs consider theii
���attle better property than their wives,
Chey wateli the kraal, where the cat-
���le are kept, and their women work in
lie fields, draw the water, nnd carry
he heavy loads. When they go to
���nnrket the women carry the produce
in tlieir heads. The lords wall; behind
with a stick, ready to use it on the
ilightest provocation.
Tt is not, unusual to henr these men
*ny: "My wives are my oxen. I buy
'hem. therefore thev mint labor."
The women practice the str otest economy so that their husbands can buy
second wives.
In Tiheste the women are cast
���isiile if they do not work hard enough
ti please their husbands. The men
*ro off on raids and hunts which last
for months. The women tiike care of
the cabins, children, chamois, and
Croats. They b'ty and sell and go into
the interior. To chew tobacco is their
chief recreation.
Amt'ig the l.rbo, in the northeast
of Senegal, besides working in the
fields and caring for the children, the
women  make the implement*, of war.
ft is common fnr husbands to 6end
them to do the fighting.
The Monb'.itti men, in the Ub/tnei,
hold it a disgrace to do nny of the
work. Every hit of the agricultural
work is done by the women. When
they migrate, their wives become
beasts of burden
In (raveling, the Alipones of lirnzi)
load their women down with everything that is heavy. Among some ol
���be tribes, where it is necessary to
fell the trees, this employment is given lo the women.

Tears Relieve the Brain.
"Tears, idle tears, 1 know not what
they mean"���but Dr. Vi'aynbaum does.
Hlessed are those who weep, according to this German luminary, "for
they are decongesting their brains!"
Tears net like a natural bleeding process which is the more effective since
it takes place in a teri*'".ory directly
affecting the circulation in its most
delicate part. The lacrymal gland is
fed by the lacrymal artery, a voluminous brunch of another artery which
itself belongs to yet another. When
we weep all the tours ore furnished
directly by the blood of the lacrimal
artery, that is to say, by the blood of
the Innermost artery. Thus an abstraction of water and of nlluminoid
and ohemioal substances, at the immediate expense of the brain blood,
takes place in the act of shedding
tears. This loss of serum produces the
effect of a slight local loss of blood,
dulling the centres to pain for some
instants and bringing relief to the
weeper. This is the way tears come
to the aid of the suffering soul. This j
theory applies also to tenrs of joy.
tn joy there is chiefly increase of
Innervation and circulation. At a
giver, moment tenrs give needed relief
to the cerebral circulation of one who
has laughed too much and whose brain
thereby is congested. Every vivid emotion expresses itself outwardly in the
physiognomy or attitude. William
Jnmes snys that objects of nnger, fear,
love, not only impel a man to outward acts but provoke characteristic
alterations of posture nnd fnce. affecting In various specific ways the respiration, circulation, und other or-
gnnic timet ions. When the external
acts nre suppressed the interr.M expressions remain, We rend anger in
the face even if a blow has not heen
struck. We find fenr in the voice or
blanched cheek even when other signs
have been controlled.

Bench and Bar In England Stick te

American visitors to English courtrooms have beeu struck by the strange
appearance���strange to their eyes, at
least���of Judges nnd lawyers In wigs.
Times and customs change, but the
Judicial wig of England remains unchanged. Bench and bur bold faithfully to the traditlonnl headgear.
Until 1827 liumnn hair wus used ln
mnking the wigs, which were henvily
powdered wheu worn, but since then
white horsehair hns been used. While
English horsehnlr Is considered the
best, tbe wigmakers buy supplies in
France, Russia and even China and
South America.
Every operation in the manufacture
of wigs ls by band except the curling,
and this Is done on a small band curl-
lug machine. Most of the wigs run
from twenty-one to twenty-four and a
half Inches iu circumference.
The wig of the average member of
the bar costs $30. Full bottomed wigs,
such ns are worn occasionally by
Judges and the king's counsel nnd always by the "penker of the house of

When Children Smoked.
Every one hns read that Hawkins Introduced tobacco luto England and
that King James Inveighed against It
Elizabeth liked to sit on a low stool and
watch Sir Walter Raleigh puffing
away. In Anne's relgu almost every
one smoked. Iu Charles H.'s reign
"children were sent to school with
their pipes In their satchels, and tho
schoolmaster culled a halt ln their
studies while tbey smoked."
In 1702 Jorevln spent an evening
with bis brother at Garraway's coffee
house, Leeds, nud writes: "I was surprised to see his sickly child of three
years old fill its pipe of tobacco and
smoke It as nudfariindly as a man of
threescore. After thut a second and
third pipe without the least concern,

Women Smokers In Ireland.
The comparison between women
smoking in England and ln Ireland,
says a correspondent, ls hardly on all
fours. In Ireland many of tbe older
women whose lives nre spent ln hard
toll smoke In the country districts, but
they would utterly disdain a cigarette.
They smoke a short "cutty" pipe and
the very strongest and most pungent
tobacco���Limerick roll. It ls no uncommon thing for a man to hand his
lighted "cutty" pipe, black with long
seasoned smOklng. over to a woman for
a "draw," as It Is called. In Ireland
the pipe has long been tbe solace of
the poor, aged, hardworking woman,
and the habit has Its origin ln the use
of tobacco for allaying the pangs of
hunger ln famine dnys.���London Chronicle  ,

"No," answered Mr. Dustln Stax;
"It's the measure of the community's
value to him."
The little girl of Mrs. Lewis Best,
of Carlisle, P. 0., recently fell against
the stove and burned her forehead
very badly. Mrs. Best says:���"The
burn was nbout the size of a fifty
cent piece and was near the bone.
It made my little girl's eye swell till
it almost shut, and then she got cold
in it. It began to run matter very
badly and I could not stop it, although I bathed it good every night
and morning. At last I sent for some
Zam-Buk which soon stopped the niat-
terntion and very quickly healed the
wound. I have never seen a burn
heal so quickly, and I nm sure Zam-
Buk hns no equal for curing cuts, cr
burns, and I shall always keep a
box on hand in case o' emergency."
Every home needs Zam-Buk! All
diseases of the skin quickly yield to
it. It is nlso nn excellent remedy for

Form of  Voodooism  Which  Is Found
In the West  Indies.
"Voodooism dead? Don't you believe it. We have managed to stifle
it in this country and the English
have done a good deal in the islands
they govern, but it flourishes openly
in Hayti and is no secret in the
French or Dutch colonies." This was
the emphatic statement of a man
who, though he was born in the
southern part of the United States,
has spent the later years of his life
in tlie British West Indies. "In tlie
West Indies," he went on, "the name
is obeah, not voodoo; but the ideas
and the practices are much the same,
even worse. The blacks go to the
obeah man to get vengeance when
they have a grudge, and they're not
in the least particular where the vengeance stops. The obeah men are expert poisoners, and there isn't a doubt
that they accommodate tlieir patrons
who can pay well enough.
"In some of the West Indian colonies tho whites themselves have to
take obeah into account in their dealings with the negroes. I mean that a
negro who has a grudge against a
white person won't hesitate to try to
work obeah on hiin���or her, either.
"Generally it goes no further than
puttiiig evil charms in the way of the
person to be injured; but one hears
hints of suspicious deaths and unaccountable illnesses. When you laugh
at such an idea the old-timers shake
their heads."
Another American who hns spent
several years in the Dutch West Indies confirms the ubove. He says that
the negroes there enjoy the aid and
comfort of a bakru, whose services
are secured to them through the good
offices of the obeah man. A bakru
is the spirit of a dead person.
He is annexed to one's mennge by
going to the graveyard at midnight
in the last quarter of the moon, approaching the dead man's grave by
taking two steps forward and one step
back, and then calling politely but
firmly upon the spirit to enter your
service. This matter of politeness is
a most important feature of one's intercourse with a  bakru.
If one doesn't observe the rules of
courtesy and bid the bakru good
morning nnd good night, say "Thank
you"   and   "Please,"   and   otherwise
firopitiate his ghostly highness, he is
ikely to play one such trick as will
make one regret the day���or night,
rather���that one ever engaged a
bakru. But if you are mild and respectful to your bakru he will prove
an  excellent  servant.
In the morning you can dispatch
him to the market with the injunction to pick out a good load of wood
and save it until you come after it.
Then you can loiter over your other
affairs without giving the wood another thought. The bakru will hie
him to the market, pick out the best
wood and keep it for you. The owner
of the wood may try in vain to sell
it. He can't; and that's because the
bakru is sitting on it.
An obeah man or obeah woman is
resorted to as a rule for help in working a spite or in getting a wish, especially the wish to bask in the love of
some particular person. Some of
these charms are rather extraordinary. For instance, if a lovesick girl
will tnke some of her hair, burn it,
rub it to a powder, and put it into
the food of the man whose love she
pines for, she will hnve her wish. The
most efficneious of tiiese love chnrms
is said to be the mixing of nine drops
of one's blood with the food to be
eaten by the adored. This method
works marvels.
How    Apparently    Incorrigible    Lads
Were Made  Into Good Citizens.
The splendid results that attended
the hazardous experiment in social
reform made four yenrs ngo, when
one hundred and twenty youths were
released from Penetnng Reformatory
on their word of honor nnd provided
with homes and situations, was the
subject of an unusually instructive
address before the Canadian Institute
at Toronto recently by Mr. J. J. Kelso,
Superintendent of Neglected Children.
Mr. Kelso snid that, although the
experiment was regarded with apprehension at the time, results had
proved its wisdom, as ot? all the boys
released only six had got into the
hands of the police after leaving the
reformatory, and the majority became established as good citizens.
Most of the lads were victims of
wrong social conditions--the luck of
proper homes, of education and of
moral and religious instruction. They
hud become familiarized with crime
by too frequent arrest. There had
been too much law in dealing with
them and an almost entire absence
of love and true Christian compassion.
It was not contended, said Mr. Kelso,
that reformatories could be done without, but they should be resorted to
only after other means had failed and
should be conducted on a high ethical
plane aiming to develop character
through freedom of action and self-
control rather than by repression and
degradation. In the past thousands
of boys had been made criminals by
the legal machinery designed to save
them, but nil this was being changed
by tlie human spirit of the age; children's courts separate from the ordinary system, and educational rather
thnn punitive, were being established
everywhere, and the playground movement was taking hold as never before.
Kindness Rewarded.
The Bishop of Norwich, one of the
most genial of English prelates, delights to tell the following story
against himself: Walking one day
in a quiet suburb, he heard the thin,
piping voice of a child crying, "Oh.
please, sir, would you mind opening
this gnte for me?" Delighted to assist,
tlie good bishop opened nnd held back
tlie gate for the child. The latter,
however, upon a closer examination,
proved to be older than he had at
first thought, which made him pleasantly ask why she herself could no*
open the gate "Well, ynu see, sir,"
she snid, with nn arch smile, "the
pnint is wet. nnd I should hnve. got
it on my hnnds." An examination
of   his   own   hnnds   amply  confirmed
the  tl'llt b   nf her  fetntptnen*.

Romance of British Columbia Leads tt
Marriage Tangle.
Property in Lanarkshire and Stirlingshire worth $500,000 depends upoD
the result of an action which has developed out of a matrimonial romance
in British Columbia.
The question raised is whether the
defendant, Richard Stirling, was legitimate, and that depended upon whether the marriage of his father, Walter Stirling, now deceased, was valid.
The problem takes its origin from a
divorce obtained by a Scotsman in
North Dakota, U.S.A.
The story was outlined by counsel:
Mr. George Smith was born in Forfarshire, the son of a minister of the
Church of Scotland. He went to Canada when 22 and never returned. At
n place called Rat Portage he joined
Mr. Edward Seager, a land surveyor,
and married that gentleman's sister,
Evangeline Grace, a Canadian lady,
and the marriage was registered in
Mr. and Mrs. Smith went to the
territory of Washington, but went back
to Canada before completing the two
years' residence necessary to become
American subjects, and lived in Alber-
ti   Britisli Columbia.
Shortly after they went there Walter
Stirling nppenred on the soene. He
entered into partnership with Smith
in business connected with lunds,
mines, nnd timber. Stirling was a
man of means, and found the money.
Three children were born to Mr. and
Mrs. Smith���Jesse, George and Jane.
Tht Smith family nnd Stirling lived
in the same house.
On the last day of December, 1894,
Walter Stirling departed from the
house, leaving a message to tlie effect
that if Mrs. Smith found life unbearable with her husband she could follow him, He went twenty miles away.
Mrs. Smith did find "life unbearable"
in a day or two nnd left her husband
nnd   joined   Stirling
Then Smith followed his wife, and
there was n meeting between them
and Walter Stirling. The partnership
proceedings were arranged, but whether they arranged their subsequent
divorce proceedings was nnother question, though counsel snid he thought
the evidence was strong that they did.
Mr. Smith consulted a lawyer, and
with his elder daughter went into
North Dakota and lived in a boarding-
house. He stayed less than the ninety
days to acquire a domicile, nnd then
he began his divorce proceedings. He
did not accuse his wife of misconduct, but he obtained his divorce on
the ground of desertion, which "lacerated his feelings."
According to the laws of Dakota,
Smith and his wife were parted forever, and the former returned to his
home in British Columbia, where he
married again.
Mr. Mieklem, K.C., on behalf of the
defendant, Richard Stirling, said that,
assuming tlie marriage of Walter Stirling nnd Mrs. Smith���whicli followed
the Dakota divorce of Mr. and Mrs.
Smith���was not a good one, the child
might be legitimate according to the
Scotch law on the footing that the
parents went through the ceremony
of marriage believing that they were
properly married.
Evidence of expert lawyers was taken as to the validity of the Dakota
divorce, nnd also as to the bearing of
the Scotch law.
The hearing was adjourned for further elucidation of Scotch law on the
Makes Prize Butter
Who ever heard of Canada's
prize butter makers using
imported salt ? They all rely on
because tliey know that it dissolves
quickly ��� works iu easily ��� and
gives a delightful flavor to the
butter.  Windsor Salt is pure���
and costs no more than the
cheap imported salts.
If you want the best butter,
you must use the best salt.
That means Windsor Salt.
McLean Canyon, Hamilton Rivtr.
By a decision of the Geographic
Board of Canada, the canyon below
the Grand Falls of Hamilton river has
been named "McLean," in honor of
John McLean, an officer of the H. B.
Co., who discovered the falls and canyon in 1839.     .
The following interesting account of
McLean's visit to the falls is given in
his book, entitled "Notes of twenty-
five years' service in the Hudson Bay
Territory," and describes the scene as
he viewed it in August, 1839, when he
arrived at the falls on his exploratory
journey from Ungavn Bay. "About six
miles above the falls, the river suddenly contracts from a width of from
four hundred to six hundred yards, to
about one hundred yards, then rushing along in a continuous foaming
rapid, finally contracts to a breath
of about fifty yards, ere it precipitates
itself over the rock which forms the
fall; when still roaring and foaming,
it continues its maddened course for
a distance of about thirty miles, pent
up between walls of rock that rise
sometimes to a height of three hundred feet on either side. This stupendous fall exceeds in height the falls
of Niagara, but bears no comparison
to that sublime object in any other
respect, being nearly hidden from the
view by the abrupt angle which the
rocks form immediately beneath it. If
not seen, however, it is felt, such is
the extraordinary force with which it
tumbles into the nbyss beneath that
we felt the solid rock shake under our
feet, as we stood two hundred feet
nbove the gulf. A dense cloud of vapor, which can be seen at a great distance in clear wen ther hangs over the
spot. From the fall tn the foot of the
rapid���a distance of 30 miles���the zigzag course of the river presents such
sharp angles that you see nothing of
it until within a few yards of its
banks. Might not this circumstance
lead the geologist to the conclusion
that the fall had receded this distance? The mind shrinks from the
contemplation of a subject that carries it hack to a period of time so remote, for if the rock (syenite) always
possessed its present solidity and
hardness, the action of the water alone
might require, millions of years to produce such a result."
Killed by Snowball.
One can hardly imagine a snowball
fight having a fatal termination. Yet
at least one such case is on record.
A young man home on lenve from
Egypt, nnd staying with his parents
at Finsbury Park, London, was leaving the house one winter afternoon,
when a squashy lump of half-melted
snow, thrown by one of a number of
boys who were pelting one another,
hit him on the head. He gave one
cry and fell down dead

the man wbo hns a taste for the odd.
"Well," respondwl his friend, "when
I am gone you cau truthfully, say tbe
same about me."
