AT THE POUING
��
Voting Was Carried on Without an Hitch, Only One
Ballot Paper Spiled.
Polling openod on Saturday last at
tho ltgal hour, and although no tremendous rufh was noticed, there was
much bustle und excitement around the
various polling stations in the liding.
Automobiles and carriages wero conspicuous hy their absence. Snowshoes
end shovels were the aids to locomotion
in many instances. The voting mas
steadily maintained throughout tho day,
the last vote being cast at Sandon ot
6.40. Only one ballot is reported spoiled,
and that nt Nakusp. All the results
���where communication could be made
by wire���were known at 7.20, and the
victorious candidate was wiring messages of thanks fifteen minutes later.
All interest was next centred on the
blackboard at the Reco Hotel, where a
continuous stream of messages arrived
until 1 a.m. Sunday.

Wm. Bennett, of the Reco Hotel, is
to be commended for his enterprise in
arranging for the returns from all parts
of the province to be taken red hot
from the wire ft ,d exhibited in the
billiard roeiin.
Seventy four votes wore polled in
Sandon, This is 02 lie's than the last
provincial election. There will bo 400
next trip.
W'heu the result was announced at
about 8.30, there was great lejoieing all
over the riding among the Conservatives
and Win. Hunter was the recipient of
many Congratulatory telegrams. No
speeches were made, but a great deal of
money changed hands. Great excitement prevailed throughout the evening
when the telegiams from other ridings
in the province arrived telling of Mc-
Bl'ide's   victory and  return to  power.
At the election held on October 2nd,
1903, Wm. Davidson received 358 vote*,
whilst Win. Hunter received 289 votOB,
giving Davidson a majority of 09. The
tota'. vote cast on that occasion was 647.
On Saturday the total vote cast was 390.

To the Editor of the Review:
Dear Sir,���Kindly permit nie through
your valuable paper to express my
thanks to ths band of workers who labored so assiduously to 6ecuro my return
at the ^recent elections, and to every
voter who assisted me in securing so
handsome a plurality
Thanking you, I am
Vour obedient servant,
WM. HUNTER.
Hunter struck the skidoo 28 here, but
it meant skidoo for somebody else.
Tlie Socialist majority in Sandon
would have been larger had not scrutineers gone from here to several other
points.
Who said Docksteader would lose his
deposit? Who said Davidson would he
defeated? Who said Hunter would be
returned with a handsome majority?
Guilty here. . If you see it in the Review
it's so.
Is the ballot secret ? One man voted
at Rock Island, and he voted for Hunter.
What politics was lie ?
"It's easy to see you're a Liberal."
remarked tho scribe to a well-known
citizen, last Sunday.
"You're wrong," retorted the latter.
"I've just come out of the hospital, and
that's what makes me   look like this."
Tiie piteouB wail which emanated from
the empty bellies of the Liberals was
disregarded by the people last Saturday.
A few crumbs of comfort were distributed here and there, but the general result
is so astounding to them that they feel
and look like thirty cents.
Has anybody seen Archibald Bone's
deposit lying around ?
If you see it in the Review, it's so 1
Poor Archie!
Covet not that which belongs to
others.
Cut and come  again!   It makes us
laugh!
A fool and his money is soon  parted.
Le tout ensemble: "Coek-a-doodle-
doo."
"To have nothing but one's labor for
one's pains."   Hard luck, sure-ly.
"If yon would enjoy the (ruit, pluck
not ttie flower."
"Old reckonings breed new disputes."
That's the bunch.
Telegrams from all parts of tlie. riding
reached Sandon at regular interval! on
Saturday, which were sent for the purpose of creating doubt here. With
slight variations these all read "Dook-
steader strongest man here; help, help."
The merry   "h:i ha" altogether, p'etiso.

My best  thanks for your   valuable
assistance in our victorious campaign.

BEFORE AND AFTER.
Remarks heard before and after the
election:���
'Brer Potter, at tbe poll: Yes, Bir, my
name is Joseph Gabriel. I looked so
much like an angel when a kid that my
parents thought the mime appropriate.
The Poll Clerk: You look like the
devil now.
Ewon Cameron (breathlessly): Lend
me five dollars quick. A man outside
wants to bet that. Docksteader will get
ten votes here.
Die. Gomm,'in the secret chamber:
Hi, thc:e; what do I have to do with
this paper? Are there two d's in Davidson? Oh,o-o-o-oh I I see! Where's
the pencil ? 1 bet you five dollars that
hill "
The Poll Clerk : Next.
Billy Macdonald : Yes, ��ir* my name
is McDonald, I am a miner, and I live
at Three Forks.
After the poll closed:���
Percy Johns:on: Splendid! The vote
will be as proportionately large for
Davidson at all other points.
W. Davidson: That's���all���right !!!
When re.-ults from other points had
arrived :
Billy McClurg: Hoorroo ; I've won
$65.
Percy Johnston: Please go'way and
let rae sleep.
Purley Ward: The country is going
on the hog.
McLcod's gramophone: He walked
right in, and he turned around, and he
walked right out again.
W. Davidson: 	
Oncn more we are called upon to
record a and event. Tho grim reaper
visited our City again on Monday
morning and called to his eternal home
one of the brightest hoys in the camp,
John M. Cunning*. H�� had been ailing
for about two weeks, and was at first
treated at the Miner's Union Hospital
(or a frozen foot, but taking his discharge,
he accompanied the hockey club to New
Denver, on tho 29th inst, and contriet-
ed a cold tiiere. Pneumonia speedily
developed and his condition became
serious. He passed away on Monday
morning last ft 8 a.m. in the presence
of his father and aunt and several of
his friends.
The sad event has cast a depressing
gloom over the city, as the boy was a
eonspicious figure and most cordially
liked. Coming si soon after tho death
of the pioneer, whose demise we
chronic led last week, it has had a nioit
depressing effect.
"Johnny," although young in years
���ho was slightly over 16���was quite a
man. lie has for some time been working at the mines io tlie vicinity, and a
great future was expected for him,
Wo join with the community in extending to his grief-stticken relative)
sinccrest and heartfelt condolences at
their tad loss.
Funeral service* wore held at Irs
homo on Wednesday morning and the
interment took place at New Denver
the same day.
Rev. F. J. Rutherford priached a
most eloquent funeral oration over .the
remains, and his Hinds made a lasting
impression on his hcare ��. Somehimd-
so'ino wreaths were placed upon the
casket, conspicuous among which was
a massive one of immoitellea s nt wilh

Baii-lon Hockey Club, and ab, autiful

the Review staff.
A large number of friends of the deceased accompanied the lomains to their
last resting-place at New Denver, where
the last sad rites were performed hy tlie
Rev. W. G. Brown.
The pall-bearers were: W. Cliffe, G.
Hope, P. W. Ward, Alex. Forrest,

Bob McTaggart: Has thero been an
election somewhere ?
Jock Laing:  ?xx? 1 ��� * dumm.

It is aho our painful duty to icord
the death of Warren Wetinore, which
took place at tlie hospital cm Thursday
morning. His death came as a great
surprise to many, as he had only been
ailing for about a week. He was admitted into the iiospital last Sunday,
and getting worse, Dr. Brouse, of New
Denver, consulted with the house surgeon here, and the case was determined
hopeless. The cause of his death was
nccutc inflammation of the liver.
Wanen Wetinore has lived in the
Slocan for about seven yeare. High
wages and go id prospects induced him
to luave Sin Jose, California, where he
had a wife and thne children, and for
the latter he was anxious to provide a
lirst-elsss education. His eldest son
was sent to the famous Stanford University, Cal., where he is now studying
medicine. Ills ono object In life was to
earn big money to forward to his family,
and he debarred himself of any pleasure
that his offspring might be the better
provided for. He has worked in the
hills, but when men wore not needed
for mining he was to be seen at work
around town almost immediately. lit
was very reliable, and his services wero
therefore in great demand. In manner
he was unobtrusive and everabateinlons.
II�� was universally admired and respected by the entirn community, and by
his death the city of Sindon sustains
a severe loss. Ho was born in UtitTalo,
New York, in 1359, and from thee he
went to California when he reached
man's estate. 1 lis family consists of
two sons ftnd on.) daughter, all grown
up. On behalf ol the city wc extend
our sincerest sympathy to his sorrowing
relatives.
An effort lias been made to communicate with the deceased's relatives, hut
as the wires are -down all over the
country, it is probable that, failing
instructions otherwise, the interment
will take place either here or at New
Denver as soon as ft casket can be procured from the outside.
In the Ymir riding the official majority ol Schofleld (Con.), was 105. The
vote was as follows: S.:ho(ield 378,
Hume 173, and Houston 120.
Election petitions will likely occur at
Fernie, Richmond and Delta.
Rossland's ninth annual winter c.irri-
vul begins on Feb. 11th.

*^i<i'***+**************r**l
Did anything drop? The decisive
manner in which the cltctois of'the
Slocan supported Wm. Hunter on
Saturday last w��s not at ail surprising.
At the second time of asking, the "grand
old man" of the richest silver lead
district of British Columbia, has been
returned on a Conservative ticket, and
this time his former, vanquisher is now
the vanquished. The labor body made
the mistake of their lives when they
embraced the Socialist propaganda, and
they realizo it now when loo late.
There is work to be done by the workers, but Socialism is too comprehensive
to be applicable to tlie local requirements. As long as this world lasts
there will he capitalists, snd there must
bo workers. While organized labor
acts on tho defensive and cautiously
attacks and entrenches itself stiongly,
the desideratum will be reachod swifter
and surer. To bolilly wage war against
capital and c.rry hostilities to the
mouth of the opposing guns means the
inevitable destruction of the party who
are defending labor, and the annihilation of tho working units. Labor always
needs strong champions, but these loaders must adopt, rational business-like
methods if they desire to faithfully serve
their supporters. To secure the best
results for the workers, none hut business men w*th business me: hods should
be cho-cr*. as standard hearers.
A man may hnvo * great penchant
fur ready retort and platform oratory,
hut thi* alone should not suffice. Too
often is it tlie c;.se that l.ibor chooses
as its lea !cr a man who id capable of
putting up a big talk, but who also
lacks the essential qualities to success*
fully run a jerkwater grocery store in a
flourishing neighborhood. Wo dp not
intend this to ho personal, and when
wc say that, it must not be inferred
that wo ar�� trying to "lick spittle."
We have too meat a reacted for the
cnu*e of the workers to be si enced by
veiled threats from extremists. We
work as hard as any man in British Columbia, and are proud to be called a
worker. We are therefore entitled to
give our opinion ns to what would ho
best for British Columbia and be-t tm*
the Slocan. The' fi.tire prosperity of
our many camps in rhia mining country
is bound up in the advent of capital to
develop our properties. We mint not
scaic capital off. Socialism demands
that "wealth belongs to the producers,"
and capital lakes the same stand as a
worker would, insofar aa giving nothing
away that it doesn't have to.
Win. Hunter is o friend of the working man, ar.d we do not believe otherwise than thnt ninety per centof Ihe
voters who cast their ballots agiiust
him are glud that he is returned. All
congratulations, then, to our newly elected member. Let us close the ranks
for the none; and work harmoniously
to lift the depression now existing in
the Slocan. Make the wants of the
country known, but don't bellyaeho if
you don't get what you don't ask for.

Many incieietita occur in a political

II.ft Canadian. Sum* of lh����o are of

to this rule wns luiniehed ill the Slocan

"Fiddlesticks!" she said. "This Is a
cave, not a drawing room."
- "In other words, I am u lout and not
a courtier," he smiled. "Well, a lout
may look at a princess, Wre have no
court eticiuette iu the hills, I am sorry
to say."
"That was very unkind, even though
you suld it most becomingly," she protested. "You have called this pall a
throne.    Let us alsu Imagine that you
are a courtier.''
"You punish me most gently, your
highness. I shall nut forget my manners again, believe me," He seemed
thoroughly subdued,
"Then I shall expect you to remove
that horrid black thing. It Is positively villainous. You look much better
without it."
"is It nn edict or a compliment?" be
asked, with sueh deep gravity that she
flushed.
"it is neither," she answered. "You
don't have to take it oft unless you
want to"���
"In either event it is off.' You were
right. It serves as a partial disguise.
I have many enemies and the black
patch is a very good friend."
"How perfectly lovely," cried Beverly. "Tell me all about It. I adore
stories about feuds and all that."
"Your husband Is an American. He
should be able to keep you well entertained with blood-nnd-thunder stories,"
said he.
"My bus��� What do you��� Oh, yes!"
gasped Beverly. "To be sure. I didn't
hear you, I guess. That was rather a
severe clap ot thunder, wasn't it?"
"Is that also a command?"
"What do you mean?"
"There was no thunderclap, you
know."
"Oh, wasn't there?" helplessly.
"The storm Is quite past. There Is
���till a dash of rain In the air, and the
wind may be dying hard, but aside
from that I think the noise Is quite subdued."
"I believe you are right. How sudden it all was."
"There are several hours between
this and dawn, your highness, and you
should try to get a little more sleep.
Your cushions are dry and"���
"Very well, since you are so eager to
get rid of��� began Beverly, and then
stopped, for it did uot sound particularly regal. "I should have said, you
are very thoughtful. You .will call me
if I sleep late?"
"We shall start early, with your permission. It Is forty miles to Oanlook,
and we must be half way there by
nightfall."
"Must we spend another night like
this?" cried Beverly dolefully.
"Alas, I fear you must endure us another night. I am afraid, however, we
shall not find quarters as comfortable
as those of the Hawk and Raven."
"I didn't mean to be ungrateful and
���er���snl'ppish," she said, wondering If
he knew the meaning of the word.
-"No?" he said politely, aud she knew
he did not, whereupon she felt distinctly humbled.
"You know you speak such excellent
English," she said irrelevantly.
He bowed low. As he Btraigutened
his figure, to his amazement, he beheld an agonizing look of horror on
ber face, her eyes riveted on the mouth
cf the cavern. Then there came an angrier sound, unlike auy that had gone
before lu that night of turmoil.
"Look there!   Quick!"
The cry of terror from the girl's
palsied lips as she pointed to something behind him awoke the mountain
man to Instant action. Instinctively
he snatched his long dagger from its
sheath and turned quickly. Not twenty feet from them a huge catlike beast
stood half crouched on the edge of
the darkness, his long tall switching
angrily, Tbe feeble light'from the
depth of the cave threw the long, water soaked visitor into bold relief
against the black wall beyond. Apparently lie was us much surprised as the
two who glared at him, ns though
frozen to the spot. A snarling whine,
a tierce grow), Indicated his fury at
tiiiiliug his shelter, his lair, occupied.
"My Cod! A mountain lion! Ha-

A score of men, half awake, grasped their weapons nnd struggled to

lion's gaunt body shot through the air.
In two bounds he wns upon the goat

firmly to meet (lie rush of the maddened beast, his long dagger poised for
the death dealing blow.
"Run!" he shouted to her.
Beverly Calhoun hud fighting blood
In hor veins. Utterly unconscious of
her action at the time, she quickly drew
the little silver bundled revolver from
the pocket of her gown. As mnn, beast
and knife came together, In her excitement she tired recklessly at the combatants without nny thought of the
Imminent danger of killing her protector. There was a wild scream of pain
from the wounded beast, more pistol
shots, fierce yells from the excited
hunters, the rush of feet, and then the
terrified and almost frantic girl staggered and fell against the rocky wall.
Her wide gray eyes were fastened
upou the writhing lion, and the smoking pistol was tightly clutched In her
hand.
It hnd all occurred in such an Incredibly short space of time thnt she
could not yet realize what had happened.
Her heart and brain seemed paralyzed, her limbs stiff and Immovable.
Like the dizzy whirl of a kaleidoscope,
tlie picture before her resolved Itself
Into shape.
The beast was gasping his last upon

She was ut bis side, the pistul falling

"Oh, I'm so glud to lieur you speak!
Never mind the dress! You are torn

Aunt Fanny!  Come here this minute!"
Forgetting the beast and throwing
off the paralysis of [ear, she pushed
one Of the men away and grasped tlie
arm of the Injured man. He winced
perceptibly, and she felt something
warm and sticky on her bands. She
knew it wns blood, but It was not In

"Good Lawd!" was all the old woman could say, but she obeyed her mistress.
"It was easier than it looked, your
highness," murmured Baldos. "Luck

He threw himself upon the ground

body of the animal.
"I Insist upou your taking theBe

"And I decline Irrevocably." She
stared ut bim in positive auger. "Trust
Ravone to dress these trifling wounds,
your highness. He may not be ns
gentle, but be Is as Arm as any princess lu all the world."
"But your aim?" she cried. "Didn't
you say it was your legs? Your arm Is
covered with blood too. Oh, dear me,
I'm afraid you ate frightfully wounded."
"A stray bullet from oue of my men
struck nie there. 1 think. You know
there was hut little time for aiming"���
"Walt! Let me think a minute!
Good heavens!' she exclaimed, with a
Btart. Her eyes were suddeuly filled
with tears, and there was a break In
her voice. "1 shot yon! Don't deny It
���don't! It is the right arm, and your
men could not have hit It from where
they stood.   Oh, oh, oh!"
Baldos smileil us he bared his arm.
"Your aim wus good," lie admitted.
"Hud not my knife already been In the
lion's heart your bullet would hnve

my anil was in Iheway. Besides, your
highness, it bus only cut through the
skin, and n little below, perhaps. It
will he well In a day or two. I am
sure you will find your bullet lu the
carcass of our lamented friend, the
probable owner of this place."
Ravone, n hungry looking youth, took
charge of the wounded lender, while
her highness retreated to tbe furthest
corner of the cavern, There she snt
and trembled while the wounds were
being dressed. Aunt Fanny bustled
buck and forth, lirst uuceremoniously
pushing ber way through the circle of
men to take observations nud then reporting to the Impatient girl. The
storm hnd passed, nnd the night wus
still except for the rush of the river.
Raindrops fell now and then from the
trees, glistening like diamonds as they
touched the light from the cavern's
mouth. It was all very dreary, uncanny aud oppressive to poor Beverly. Now
and then she caught herself sobbing,
more out of shame und humiliation
than In sadness, for hnd she not shot
the man who stopped between her and
dcuth?   Whut must he thluk of her?
"He snys yo' nil 'd bettuh go to bald,

Fanny after one of her trips.
"Oh, be does, does he?" sniffed Bev-
Orty, "I'll fr��� t0 np(1 wne)1 ����� r;]eas-e

Utants   In   the   Land.
John Lee, ex-M. P. P., of Highgate.
is relating an episode which occurred
while lie wus in Merlin recently, says
the Ridgetown Plafiidealer.
Mr. Lee was stopping for the night
ai the Marquis Hotel, a temperance
house. After registering, Mr. Lee
stepped into the sitting room and lit
Iii;. pipe for a smoke before retiring.
There were five other gentlemen in
the room, all oil operators, interested
in the Tilbury field, and all hale fellows. Mr. Lee also noticed that all
were as well blessed, and some more
so, witli avoirdupois as himself. After
the informal introductions which followed Mr. Lee remarked on the similarity of heights and weights, which
was apparent. He suggested that each
man give the nationality of his parents, his age, his height and weight,
and the following names and figures
were the result. The similarity of
parentage, height and weight will be
apparent to the reader:���
C. W. Fulton, age 34, weight 200
lbs., height 6 ft. 4 1-4 inches, parentage Scotch-Irish. R. R. Lowry, age
51, weight 282, height 6 ft. 2 inches,
parentage Scotch-Irish. W. M. Lowry,
aged 52, weight 273, height 6 ft. 2.,
parentage Scotch-Irish. Mance Williams, age 36, weight 258, height 6
ft., parentage Scotch-Irish. Charles
McGill, age 41, weight 256, height 5
ft. 11 inches, parentage Scotch-Irish.
John Lee, age 61, weight 256, height
6 ft. 1 inch, parentage Irish.
These six men weighed a total of
1,615 pounds.
Wintering At Hudson Bay.
Some interesting facts about the
present position of the Canadian
Government steamer Arctic, now wintering on tlie north shore of Hudson
Bay, are contained in a letter from
one of the erew, published in The St.
John's (Nfld.) Herald. The letter was
sent by the Dundee whaler Eclipse,
which called at Ponds' Inlet on Sept.
20, at which time the Arctic had gone
into winter quarters. The harbor was
land-locked and surrounded by tlie
highest mountains the crew had seen
on their trip. On some of the islands
claimed for Canada by the Arctic
they found evidences of copper, coal
and iron. The finding of the Franklin
relics was related, and the letter
stated that the Arctic would cruise
northward and westward when released next spring, und expected to
return to Quebec in October next.
Tlie writer speaks of resetting the
Franklin monument at Point Beechy,
and painting the headboards on the
graves of the seven sailors buried
there. The remains of Franklin's
house still stand and a couple of
beats were found nearby. Tho crew,
of whom niue were from Newfoundland, looked forward without apprehension to the coming winter.
Alfred   Beit's   Heir.
Otto.Beit, who has fallen heir to
tlie greater portion of Alfred Beit's
fortune, has decided to continue to
reside in his own house on Belgrave
Bnnnro, so he wants tc sell Alfred';:
$5,000,000 palaee on Park Lane. When
Beit was building this house his
ground landlord, the Duke of Westminster, compelled him to have it
only one storey, as otherwise it would
interfere with the view across Hyde
Park from the duke's own residence,
'lhe motor omnibus, however, has
transformed Park Lane from a quiet,

LIVES OF DECEIT.
Luxurious Palaces for London's Poor
���How the Rates Are Wasted���Offspring of Vicious In Luxury.
If a stranger coming to London
wishes to see how Poor Law relief is
disbursed he should to to the offices
of the Camberwell Botird in Peckham
road. There he will find a magnificent
building, which coat ��20,000, to accommodate members etf the board.
This is a building totally distinct
from the workhouses belonging to
Camberwell. It is perhaps the finest
building of its kind in the world. It
would put many provincial town halls
to shame.
A short time ago Mrs. Bracey
Wright, a member of the board, moved for a return of all paying patients
in the Camberwell Infirmary. And
Mrs. Edmonds, who seconded the proposal, pointed out that the infirmary
was being maintained by poorer people than those found inside. The actual cist each week of these well-to-
do paupers is ��1. 6s. 4d.
Again, most people have heard and
read of t'. 3 wonderful paupers' palace
built by the Hammersmith Guardians at Wormwood Scrubs at a cost
of a quarter of a million for the accommodation of 750 paupers. But few
people who pass up Kingsway see the
handsome block of buildings which
form the finest and most complete
workhouse of its size in London���built
by the Strand Guardians.
The architecture is pleasing; the
interior is magnificent; the structure
itself is a triumph for the architect
and the builder. This building, which
cost ��27,000, accommodates 127
tramps and 66 regular paupers, the
part devoted to the "regulars" costing
��14,000, or about ��230 per head, excluding cost of site.
Inside the building the stranger
would never imagine himself to be
in a workhouse. Polish, art shades
for the walls, mosaic, or gleaming
wood block for the floors greet him
everywhere.
Upstairs there is a suite of rooms
for "ladies." The walls are faced with
pale green tiles; a rug here and there,
chairs, a few plants in the corners,
and pictures on the walls give the
room the appearance of creat luxury.
In an adjoining room there stand
the beds clean and bright, and by
the side of each one is a child's cot,
over the head of which is a dainty
canopy. In this cot the offspring of
the vicious lie surrounded by more
luxury than con be given to children
of the virtuous poor in their homes.
Here in a nutshell is the whole problem as shown by the clergyman-
guardian. Father Higley:
Every Thursday when I go down
to our workhouse at Bromley I see
long lines of young men, well housed, well fed, well clothed, well Bhod,
inmates of our workhouse. On my
road down I see men afflicted in every way���undersized, knock-kneed,
badly clothed, badly shod, working
in all weathers���rain, cold and snow;
and my blood boils, because I know
that these poor afflicted men who are
selling wood or some commodity in
the streets, have to pay a lurge part
of their hardly earned money to maintain men far abler than themselves
to fight the battles of life. And yet
the workhouse parasites are masters
of the situation.
The value of vigilance and the loss
through laxity may be gathered from
the following facts about Holborn,
the guardian board of which woke
up suddenly one day and had a "call
over"���an exomination into the pauper history of every inmate. In one
of their two workhouses the cases of
1,300 paupers were examined, with the
result that 25 were lawfully placed
with other unions to whom they belonged���some of them having lived on
the Holborn ratepayers for many
years; and 55 were found to possess
relatives who could pay for their
maintenance.
Some astounding discoveries were
made. A married woman, who had
lived in the workhouse for many years,
confessed that her husband was living in Marylebone. He was discovered and compelled to take his wife
out. She had, however, cost the ratepayers hundreds  of pounds.
In another case quite recently a
woman who posed as a widow and
received outdoor relief was living with
her husband, who was described as
the lodger.
These are but typical of the condition of tin management of some of
our London workhouses. Instances
sueh as that of the pauper Stourton,
with ��1,400 in consols, are frequently
occurring. The moneyed class among
the paupers is larger than is imagined, but if guardians had more concern for their duties ad less for
their love of power we Bhould hnve a
wholesome and wholesale clearance of
the professional pauper, whose flourishing condition is the result of appalling laxity.

At a cricket match. Married versus
Single, the former took first innings,
and chiefly by the aid of some blind
hits by one of the players, named
Jones, made a score of 84, Just as the
bachelors were about to commence
their innings news of a local railway
accident, in which some of the passengers had been killed, reached the
field.
"I'm in a bit of a quandary," said
Jones to the curate who had organized the match. "My missus was in
that train."
"Dear me. I'm sorry to hear it,"
was the reply. "You are anxious 'o
get away, of course?"

When Wealth Is Odious.
Senutor P. H. McCarren has never
been regarded as an authority in
either ethics or economics, and it is
therefore rather refreshing to discov-
ar him discussing the question of the
distribution of wealth, which is both
an ethical and economic question.
"The time is coming," he says:
"when it will b3 odims to be
wealthy."
The Wall Street Jou nal be*s to
differ with Senator McCarren. Wealth
will never be odious except:
1. When the rich man is criminal.
2. When he is rnise ly.
3. When he displays his wealth to
ippress others, to crush out competi-
ion and to bribe h.'s way into political power.
Riches will never he odious us long
is the rich man conducts himself
like a gentleman; using his wealth
aright with becoming hospitality. With
ntelligent philanthropy and with a
itie sense of stewardship. ��� Wnll

DAILY  FADING AWAY
The Story of a Woman Made Well by
Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills.
Bud blood means bad health. That
is why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills mean
���rood health. They actually make
new. rich blood which stiengthens
every nerve nnd every orgnn in tlie
body. That is why people who use
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills feel bright,
active and strong. Mrs. Arthur
Hanningan, Marshville, Ont., is n
witness to the truth of these statements. Mrs. Hunningan says: "For
nearly three yenrs I suffered from
inaeniia (blootllessness) and during
that time consulted and took medicine from several doctors, without
beneficial results. My complexion
wns of a waxy appearance, my lips
nnd gums seemed bloodless. I suffered from hoadches, dizziness and
palpitation of the heart. My appetite wns so poor that I did not care
whether I ate or not nnd I grew so
weak, and was so much reduced in
flesh that my friends thought I was
in consumption. As I have said I
doctored without benefit, until the
last doctor whom I consulted advised nie to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
I followed his advice, and less than
a dozen boxes have made me the
well woman I urn today. All the
symptoms of my troubles hnve vnn-
isbed nnd I enjoy the best of
health. 1 know there ure hundreds
of women who are drifting into the
same condition I was, and to all such
I would strongly urge the immediate
use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills do not not
upon the bowels; they do not tinker
with'mere symptoms; they go right
to the root of the trouble in the
blood. That is why they cure common ailments like rheumatism, neuralgia, kidney trouble, headaches nnd
backaches. St. Vitus dance, anil the

KIDNEYS AFFECTED

DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS.
Well- na, Weather Prophets.
A popular idea In Switzerland that
aome of the wells In that country are
reliable weather prophets has been
proved by scientists to be well founded. These wells, by some sort of pressure, not clearly understood, have tho
property of drawing In air at certain
times and of blowing out air at other
periods. In order to ascertain definitely If there was any truth In the Idea
of weather prophecy the wells were
covered and a email opening was surmounted with a U shaped pressure
gauge. It was found that when the
barometer rises the air rushes into the
wells In a steady current, and when
i the barometer falls the air rushes out
Tbe currents of air are definite and
easy to perceive, even without the
gauge. Tbe geuerul tendency of the
weather Is foretold with considerable
certainty.

The sudden lowering of the temperature causes the pores of the skin to
close, and thus throws on to the
kidneys much work which is ordinarily performed by the skin. This,
no doubt, accounts for the grent prevalence of kidney disease duiing the
fall nnd winter.
There is no treatment which so
quickly affords relief to overworked
and deranged ki'lneys tis Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills, because they act
on the liver, as well as they kidneys,
and when in lieulthful action the
liver does much of the work of filtering the blood, which is otherwise
left for the kidneys.
Bright's Disease, dropsy, uric acid
poisoning, stone in the bladder, and
rheumatism are among the most painful forms of kidney disease, and
these ailments can always be prevented by the timely use of Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. They
can also usually be cured by this
treatment, but if you are so fortunate as to be yet free of these dreadful ailments, keep so by using Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver pj]]s t0 "^.pp

Mr. James J. JenBon, 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 and effective in curing this
ailment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills.    At two different times in my
life tin's preparation bus entirely
cured me of this trouble, and of
late years I have found it unnecps-
snr.v, to use nny medicine whatever.
I feel it my duty to add this statement to the many otheis which I
sec in lecommendation of this excellent medicine."
Mr. W. Ferguson blacksmith, Trenton. Out., says "In my work I urn
bending over a great deal, and this,
together with the constant strain on
all .parts of the hotly, and the sudden change of temperature when going to und from tbe forge, brought .
on kidney disease nnd hnckuche. At
times I would suffer so that I would
have to quit work to ease my buck,
and felt so miserable most of the
time I did not enjoy life very much.
"As lust I decided that I would
have to get relief in some way, and
having heard of Dr. Chase's Kidney-

backache and kidney disease, I began using them. To my surprise nnd

JOHN   W.   YOUNG
Prince Albert Times.
The west is offering eloquent inducements to tlie younger journalists
of the east, eloquent because tbe inducements are of the nature of increased financial reward, n chance to
enter the political arena, and climb
to the top._ in a country where the
nominations nre not cut und dried���
where every man will be given a
place according to his ability, and his
courage.
During the past few years the number of these young men who have left
the confines of the older provinces te
make a place for themselves in the
west has been ever increasing, ami
the effect is being felt proportionately.
One of these is ivlr. John W.
Young, who iu company with the
well known young newspaper man.
R. P. Laurie, is in charge of the ties
tinies of the Prince Albert Times. Mr.
Young is a Chatham boy, was born
and brought, up there, educated in
the same town, und hns filled all the
reportorial positions on the Chatham
Planet, up to the desk of city editor.
The parents of Mr. Young were
among the early residents of Chatham, his father was a carriage builder, a man who took an active interest in all public affairs, and was once
mayor of the city of Chatham. Both
of Mr. Young's parents have been
dead for some years.
Equipped with a very fair education and a good measure of self-reliance, Mr. Young accepted his first
newspaper position at the age ol
twenty, and one needs no further indication of his perseverance than that
he remained with the same papei
through more than eight years, working his way up, till the time of his
coming west, when he left the desk
of city editor.
Since taking over the Prince Albert Times, from the estate of tht
late J. D. Maveety, last year, the
new firm have more than trebled the
plant, and have lifted the Times tc
a high level in western journalism,
taking the Conservative stand, and
making their influence felt in no
small way.
Mr. Young was married in Chatham in 1904 to Miss Houston, daugh
ter of Mr. M. Houston, police magistrate, and member of the law firm
of Houston  &  Stone.
We predict a bright future for Mr.
Young in both journalistic and poli
tical circles.

ADVICE TO MOTHERS.
If you have a baby or young children in the home always keep a box
of Baby's Own Tablets on hand,
Don't wait until the little one is
sick, for sometimes an hour's delay
may prove fatal. This medicine
Cares Stomach troubles, constipation,
diarrhoea, simple fevers and makes
teething painless. If children are
sick Baby's Own Tablets make them
well; and better still an occasional
close will keep them well. Tlie Tablets are good for children of all ages
and nre guaranteed to contain no
opiate or harmful drug. Mrs. Joseph

THE EVILS OF
CONSTIPATION
SPECIALIST     SAYS     WOMEN     IN
PARTICULAR     ARE     SUFFERERS
A clergyman was trailing a creeper
to a piece of trellis near his gate,
when he noticed that a small boy
was watching him attentively.
*> "Well, my young fiiend," he said,
"are you looking out for a hint or
two on gardening ?"
"No," said the boy, "I'm waiting
to hear what a paison says when he
hammers his thumb."
Why Bileans  Prove So Beneficial
A medical specialist states that
eight out of ten cases of headache,
dizziness, sallow complexion, and various ailments peculiar to women foi
which he is consulted have tlieir origin m constipation. Although this
ai.inent is very common amongst
botu sexe-s, women appear to be tlie
greater sune,e,s. bueahs cure constipation hy stimulating the liver and
ie���'ulat.ng tlie bile flow. Bile is tlie
milium purgative of the b..dy. iii -
le.nis   regulates  its  secretion.
Mrs. S. E. Laldwin, of 38 St. Paul
Street, Toronto, Says: "1 huve tnkei,
Lile.ns for constipation and dizziness
and loUc.d in. st satisfactory results
bileans do not cause any griping, antl
lieu only cue constipation bul also
improve  the  general   health."
Mr. A. Moiuighun, of Berlin, recently proved t.iis vegetable reined)
in ii similar way. He says: "For
many years 1 suffered from both con
stipatiun and piles. Nothing I hnve
ever tried is to be compared for
beneficial result to Bileans. They
huve made me a different man, and
ii uny sifferer would like to nsk nie
any question on their operation and
their value I will he glad to give
nil the information  1 can."
Such is the result of exhaustive
tests of Bileans. This grent vegetable
remedy is invaluable also for sallow
Complexions (die to bi'e in the
blood), pimples, greasy, sallow skin,
nnd blood Impurit'es generally, Bileans also cure indigestion, debility,

Tightening Up.
The total amount contributed by
citizens of the United States for phil-
-intlirophic purposes during 1900 falls
far below the record of some other
years. Those who look for a progressive annual increase in charity contributions must be disappointed. During the last year a totai of $51,230,-
294 in large conttibutiens was given
to educational establishments, art
galleries, hospitals and asylums. The
benefactions for these obj.c's reached
the great total of $107,360,000 in 1901.
The variability of such statistics is
shown hy the statement that the contribution's in 1900 aggregated $47,500,-
000. It is estimated that the small
conttibutiens to charitib'e us?s in
1906 would aggregate not less than
���540,000,000, swelling the total philanthropic offerings to $61,230,294���Philadelphia Public Ledger.

"Formation of fine, natural pearls
by means of artificially controlling
the growth of parasities that prey
upon oys era is a new method of production pointed to as the iesult of
recent research in Oceania by Mr.
Seurat," asserts a French writer. "He
made a special study of tlie formation
of fine pearls, His conclusions shed
new light upon a question hitherto
rather obscure. The origin of the
pearl is the subject of a Hindoo le-
ii;iid, which attributes this beautiful
lormation to the fall of a drop of dew
into the bosom of an oyster gaping
in the sun. Scientists have long
oelieved that the pearl results f 10111
.1 secretion of the mollusk's nerves
oy some foreign substance, like a
0'i*ain of sand, lodged within it. The
ejhinese and Japanese fe.r a long
time, and the French recently, have
.voraed on this theory in the manufacture of so-called natural pear.s.
i'hey introduce into the heart of the
oyster a minute, hard body, around
which another gradually comes to
model itself. But it is now generally admitted that these secretions ure
iiot pearl, but merely mother-of-
pearl,"

A Te:t  of Sanity
In LnoB, an undeveloped region of
French Indo-China, there is something out of the way in the shape
of the village of lunatics. The most
common form of madness there is
belief among the lunatics that buffaloes are inside them. When these
madmen get too troublespme they
are at once removed to the village.
But previously they are tested for
madness by 'being bound hand and
foot and thrown into a river. If they
manage to swim that is a sign of
their being of sound mind. If they
sink to the bottom, as is most often
the ease, isolation in the village is
tlie sentence���in the event of their
being rescued alive.���South China

Canary Nursery.
Germany carries on a large trade
in the export of canaries. Every
year she sonds no fewer than 130,000
"of these birds to America, 3,000 to
England, and about 2,000 to Russia.
The great nursery for breeding of
canaries is the Harz Mountains.
Many of the pesasants are engaged in
the work of rearing the birds, und
receive wages of from ��10 to ��25 a
year for their trouble���an important
addition to their earnings. Many
canaries come also from the Black
Forest, but they do not fetch such
high prices as the Harz birds, not
being considered such good songsters.

Perfume   lis   Made.
The word "attar" Is from the Arab
"Itr" and means perfume. So attar of
roses Is simply perfume of roses. It is
brought from Turkey antl the East Indies In sintill vials anil is very costly.
Eveu ou the spot where It Is manufactured It Is extremely dear, because It
requires 100,000 well grown roses to
yield but 18:1 grains ot attar.
Its high price causes It to be often
adulterated with some essential or Used oil or with spermaceU. However,
the adulteration tuny be detected by,
testing It In 11 watch glass with a drop
of sulphuric Held. It' the attar be pure
it will remain colorless, for pure attar
of roses Is colorless, but If It be adulterated It will become darkened.
In rose fields, where the roses are
grown for the purpose of making the
attar, the buslirs are planted In rows.
In the early morning they are laden
with beautiful roses, but ere noon
comes tbey nre nil gathered and their
petals distilled In clay stills, with twice
their weight of water.
The water thnt "comes over" Is put
Into perfectly clean vessels and Is then
carefully covered with damp muslin
clothes to keep out dust and Insects. It
Is afterward exposed to the night air
or to artificial cold. By morulng a

EARLY GENIUS.
Men Who Were YoecieK In Years, but
Old  In  Hours).
Davy made bis epochal experiment
of melting Ice by friction when but
twenty. Yottug was no older when he
made his first communication to the
Royal society and was In his twenty-
seveutb year when he first actively
espoused the undulatory theory. Fres-
nel was twenty-six when he made tils
first important discoveries In the same
Held, und Arago, who at once became
his champion, was then but two years
his senior.
Forbes was under thirty when be discovered the polarization of heat, which
pointed the way to Mohr, then thirty-one, to the mechanical equivalent.
Joule was twenty-two In 1840, when
his great work was begun, and Mayer,
whose discoveries date from the same
year, was then twenty-six, which was
also the age of Helmboltz when he
published his Independent discovery
of the same law. William Thomson
was a youth just past his majority
when he came to the aid of Joule before the British society and but seven
years older when he formulated his
own doctrine of dissipation of energy.
And Clausing and Rankine, who art
usually mentioned with Thomson al
the great developers of thermo-dy-
namlcs, were both far advanced with
their novel studies before they were
thirty. We may well agree with the
father of Inductive science that "the

Why Tailors Like Kings.
King Edward's tailors huve a standing o.der to provide him with about
10u suits a yeur, exclusive of military
uniforms and court costumes. These
suits cost between $50 and $100 each.
There is only one other man in the
world���tlie German emperor���who possesses more uniforms than King Edward, 'tlie kaiser's outtit, it is said,
includes 2,000 of them, liut tlie kaiser
tleiignts in donning gorgeous costumes. King lidward wears tliem
oniy when necessary. He is, however, most particular about tne ol-
liciui part 01 his outfit. He bus an
unvenlory made oiicc u month of his
uniforms in stock, uccompunied by a
careluliy prepared statement of tneir
condition. Tliey are never allowed to
get shabby. The slightst blemish on
a uniform condemns it, and it becomes the perquisite 01 tlie superintendent of tnu wardrobe. The statement made that he never wears the
same suit is erroneous. He does make
it a rule, however, never to wear
the same suit twice on consecutive
days.

Impossible to avoid the popular bias

conservatism. Though this Is In many

perception of comparative merits than
the judge himself was aware of.
This Is particularly true of Chinese
carpenters. While most of their commonest tools differ in some radical
way from our own, It Is never safe to
assume the superiority of tbe western
product. Their small ax, for example,
Is a beautifully balanced tool, and tbey

Brief Description of the Normal Schoo
Buildings Soon to Be Erected By
the   Ontario  Government.
The following is a brief description
of the Normal .School buildings to be
erected by the Ontario Government in
Peterboro', Stratford and Nortl
Bay: ���
The building will be four stories In
height. Including the basement, The
design is in the siyle of lhe Italian Re
nalssance, with a central tower in the
front facade, surmounted by a cupola
being 108 feet in height from the-
ground to top of cupola, the main entrance being at the si^e of the lower
with an imposing portico of stone.
The basement to the top of plinth
will be faced with stone. From this
Hue to the main cornice will be In
brickwork, with stone string courses
capitals, etc., with sufficient enrich
ments to give relief to the archltec
tural lines, and when completed the
composition will give an ornate anc
substantial appearance.
The plans have been prepared bj
the Public Works Department, froir
the designs of Mr. F. R. Heakes, tbe
Provincial   Government   Architect.
The outside dimensions on tht
ground line aie 78 feet frontage, b>
10S feet In depth. In the basement art
located the heating and veatilatins
apparatus, three rooms for manua'
training, a gymnasium, janitor's room
and men's toilet room.
The ground Boor Is approached bj
the main entrance In front for the pub
lie and teachers, and an entrance at
each side for the students, leading tc
a wide hall, extending through the
centre of the building, with two spac
ious staircases leading to the up;iei
floors. There will be upon this nooi
three class-rooms, a library and read
Ing-room, a room for the Principal, ai
office for the Secretary and two cloak
rooms.
On the first floor are located twe
class-rooms, a lecture-room, chemlca
laboratory, apparatus room, teachers
rooms, ladles' toilet rooms and twe
cloak-rooms.
The third floor consists of an assem
lily hall with a seating capacity for five
hundred persons, with ample exits a'
each end, an art room and two ruoim
for the Instruction of domestic science
The Great Bastard.
The great bustard (Otis tarda), a bird
still found In tbe southern provinces of
Russia, Is the heaviest European fowl.
In size It exceeds the Norwegian blackcock. The old males attaiu a weight of
thirty-five pounds, and where food is
plentiful specimens weighing thirty-
eight pounds and even forty pounds
have been captured. These birds have
disappeared from western Europe,
where once they were almost as numerous us partridges, and are seen only In
small flocks In the sand hills skirting
the lower valley of the Dnieper and
here and there along the north coast of
the Cuspian. The hen lays eggs as big
as ordinary pears. A larger and heavier bird, the cassowary, is Incapable of
flight, but It can kick with ths
strength of a mule and uses the sharp,
bony quills of Its wings as a cock uses
his spurs.

METALLIC ROOFING C?
Saving tha Babies.
When Alderman Broadbent, a brother of the King's well-known physician, took office as Mayor of Huddors-
fleld, on November !), 1904, he offered
t.i give parents living in a specified
district of the city $5 for every child
born during his twelve months in office and which lived to the age of a
year. The result of the experiment was
announced, the second anniversary of
its inauguration. The rate of infant
mortality in the Longwood district of
Huddersfield, which is the experimen*.
'.al area, had averaged 122 per thousand for the preceding ten years. The
period of the test proved somewhat
unfortunate. There were serious epidemics of whooping cough and meaB-
les, while the summer of 1908 was one
of the deadliest recorded. The first
baby to earn the gift was born on November 10, 1904, and the last on November 8, 1905. The mothers notified
the managing committee of the births
of these babies. No fewer than 107 received the gift. Four died .and one did
not claim the gift and its fate cannot
be learned. If, however, it is reckoned
as dead the average mortality works
out 44 per thousand ns compared with
tlie previous 122 per thousand.
Mr. Broadbent in announcing the
result at the Borough Council said
this reduction in the average to less
than one-half of what it had been was
astounding. His promise of the gift of
f) was intended as a stimulus to maternal affection, but to prove his desire to help mothers this was done
through a committee of volunteer women workers who undertook to advise
and assist the parents if they so desired. The babies belonged to all classes
and there was no discrimination. Some
lived in places which were hardly DeV
ter than slums.
