> Shortly after eight o'clock on Wednesday morning an alarming explosion
occured at the residence of C. E. Lyons
on Main street. Mr. and Mrs. Lyons
had just finished breakfast and bad
left the kitchen when a terrific explosion
occured. Tho cooking range was
smashed to atoms, whilst fragm-nts of
iron were hurled through the air. Il
was extremely fortunate for our popular
city clerk and his estimable wife that
tbey arose from the breakfast table iu
the nick of time, otherwise a tragedy
would hare had to be recorded. Their
pet retriever, however, was not so fortunate as he was cut severely abnit the
head, and he will be minus one eyo for
ths remainder of his life, All sorts of
conjectures were afloat as to the cause
of the explosion, but it is generally
supposed Ihat it was caused by the
freezing cf the hot water pipes which
connected witVlhe tank.
E, M. S.indil.inds left fir Calgary on
Tuesday morning. A large number of
his friends were at the depot to see
him take his departure an I wish him a
final "good luck."' "Sandy," as he
was familiarly called, is about to start
in the real estate aud brokerage business at Calgary, and there is uot a mini
in the f-locan but d-sirei to h.-ar of his
success. Coming to Three Forks before
Sandon was a town, he did duty as provincial constablo for two and a half
years, in which capacity he won the
respect and confidenco of his fellow men.
Shortly afttr the boom struck Sandon
he was removed here, and in due course
was appointed Stipendiary Magistrate.
He also was deputy Mining Recorder,
and in that capacity ho mado boas of
(rends. His wad was ever ready to be
skinned for a fellow in distress, and
many a miner who has run up against
hard times has had his miner's 1 cense
renewed at the expense of Sandy. The
cU-y can ill-afford to lose such a citizen
and we but echo the sentiment of everyone when we say, "Good luck" and
" Au Revoir."
The polling station for Sandon will be
the Review offieo.
Win. Davidson Nominated to
Fight By a Majority
Of Delegates.
A reprcs'i ta'.ive Convention of delegates from all points of the Slocan

day last. The Convention was called

banner in the forthcoming elections,

Owing to a rush of work wo aro unable
to mak�� a collecting trip as often as
we would wwh. The editor would appreciate the leceipt of outstanding accounts, aa we need money in our
Worse and worse I On entering the
bank at New Denver last wiek we were
mis'aken once again for our friend S, J.
Towgood, and this time by tho bank
teller. We were sorely tempted to do
something desperate ; perhaps next time
we will. The incident goes to prove
that the printeris an unknown quantity
at Canada's leading financial institution.
Bring in your ads. We will gladly
shake the bones with our " double " to
decide who is to wear a mask from now
on, or worse���grow wh;skers.
Advertising and enterprise make the
biggest pair in the deck.
Some men and some newspapers in
their political walk resembl* the Biur-
bons, of whom it is written that they
forgot nothing and learned nothing. It
is a fairly safe prediction that the elections when they come to be made are
not going to suit the Bourbons ol Nelson.
British Columbia is now in the proud
position of being able to point to a
balance on the credit side of her ledger.
That is something which every man
who registered his vote in favor of the
Conservative party at the list election
can take credit to himself Ior. When
the MeBride government took tho wheel
in its hands, this glorious province of
ours was in a most humiliated position.
The treasury coffers wero barren, and
whatiawoise, negotiations for a loan
to tide over the temporary embarrassment had tailed because the previous
Administration was so rotten that nobody with money or some would advance the needful. British Columbia
was at that time in tho eyes of the
world Bankrupt. Its assets were then
ns now, O.K., but the Ministry was in
the same position ss a merchant who
lacks successful business qualities, or
a storekeeper who neglects to exhibit,
boost, or advertise his wares. And the
inevitable result was��� Failubb.
For twelve years prior to the MeBride
Administration the finances of the province had been sliding into arrears at
the rate of $700,000 per annum, and to
the lasting disgrace of the outfit who
held tho reins of government for the
financial year preceding tho coming of
McBi ide and his coterie of business men
with business methods, tho deficit
reached the enormous sum of % 1,510,000.
Thi-i, then was the problem that the
first Conservative government British
Columbia ever had was called upon to
solve: How to wipe off that deficit nnd
restore confidence; to the  populace and
tbe outside world.
Heckled and snapped at from the
onset by the party who had brought
the province to the verge of ruin, the
new Administration went steadily to
work on its outlined policy, and at the
end of the first year the brightest
diadem in Canada's crown resumed its
wonted brilliance. Confidence was restored. Those who had been loudest in
their denunciations of the government
ceased to criticise, and sat up and marvelled at the turn or the tide. All ? no
not all. The handful of office seekers
and wnckers, aided by a guttural press,
screeched louder. The government with
a firm purpose kept on, and to every
man who had faith in the province and
the new Administration, the zenith of
his ambition was reached when on
March 3rd, 1906, at the end of the
second financial year, the Hon. R. G.
Tatlow announced a surplus of $268,265.
And to-day the government does not
faco the country with an empty treasury
and an augmented debt. The Finance
Minister can announce to the people a
surplus exceeding 1500,000 for the last
financial year, a reduction of the Provincial debt, a vastly inci eased contribution to much-needed public works in
new districts of the province, and what
will be appreciated a great deal more
by the average elector, a moderato reduction in taxation.
The above is history and undisputed
truth. It may be urged' that the pros
perous times has brought about tbe
change for the better. Grained that
the ball of prosperity has increased in
dimensions and velocity aa it rolled, did
not the Conservative government by
tact and shrewd business methods start
the ball speeding on its successful journey? Was the country in a prosperous
condition wlv n a cabinet minister of the
previous government journeyed to the
01,1 Country to plead for aloan, and was
put in the most humiliating position of
being turned down���turned down cold
for obvious reasons ? Was there not a
deficit of over ono million and a half
dollars staring the country and the
new government in tlie face ? Then as
in such a short time they wiped out
that deficit a*fd established a surplus,
that government will be credited to the
fulled extent by a grateful electorate
r.t the polls on Satu'day, February 2nd.
Under the administration of previous
governments it is common history that
capital shied at British Columbia. Il
would not come in for the reason that
the government was tho laughing stock
of not only Canada but the whole of
the civilised world. Everybody, from
the humblest immigrant to the bloated
capitalist rigidly excluded B. C. and its
fool legislation from their list of fruitful
fields for investment and labor.
Slight reflection on the marked change
will be BUlfieient for the intelligent man
with a vote, and as he has a duty to
perforin for the country, his children
and himself, we confidently leave the
issue in h s hands.
A man is not an enemy of labor
when he denounces Socialism. Lest
some ol our young bloods who are exercising their franchise for the first time
Should l*e induced to brlieve otherwise
against their convictions, we rise to remark that the ballot is secret.
Many bets in which Hunter and
Davidson figure have been struck. An
offer of 100 to 50 that the outsider gets
left at the pout finds no takers.
Politics are playing " old gooseberry "
with tho r.earin' game in Sandon. Whatever ihe result of the election on the
2nd prox. will be, it is certain that the
leading Macs in the political game *a ill
not potlache our curling club members'
individual fees. Play tlie schedule out,
boys, and spiel politics i' th' Sawbath.
Who cares whether Wandering Willie
Boy Mclnnes quits a $12,000 job to try

to make a stab at the political jackpot
and the Attorney-Generalship on the

late government fulfilled their part of a
contract made by tho Administration of
1886 to grant 20,000 acres f >r every sec
tion constructed fnem Trail Creek to
Penticton hy tho tho W�� stern Columbia Railway? Who cares whether Jim
Hill or the C.P.R. bought the charter
and called on an honest government to
fulfil its lcg.*.l obligations? Who cares if
the office seekers who are howling about
ir will have to do the same thing if returned ? Who's worrying because the
government sold worthies lands to the
G.T.P. at $1 an acre and still reserve a
quarter interest? Who's upset because
Docksteader will lose his deposit ?
Who's mad because Davidson will hsye
to put on his digging clothes sg'iiu and
pound Socialism into hard rock ? And
who is thero with an interest in the
Slocan who has not mado up bis mind
ere this that " Bill " Hunter can do
more to lift the prevailing depression in
eiur riding than 160 Socialists? Be wise,
but soop 'er np while there is ioo, and

Consistency is a jewel that ���!�����. Macdonald, the leader of the opposition,
should wear when he is making his campaign speeches, siys the Rossland
Miner, Whenever he has an opportunity of launching his ex parte
Phillipics against the Conservatives in
this province and everywhere else
nearly���for the vituperations of the sarcastic leader of the opposition take a
wide range���he persistenily and maliciously arraigns the Socialist labor
members of the House for assisting the
MeBride government. If Mr. Macdonald has one marked mannerism which
ho uses more than another it is his
capacity to sneer at anything mid everything to which he alludes in the course
of his diatribes, and thiB sneer is more
cruel, sinister and pronounced when he
alludes to the members of the Socialist
Labor party, for what he seems to consider an unholy alliance with the
MeBride ministry, and on any measure
in which they voted with tbe present
government. Tho hostile attitude
which Mr. Macdonald assumes towards
Mr. Hawtbornthwaite and those of the
same political belief, would seem to be
nut oi place and uncalled for. This is
especislly the case in an individual who
has unfutlcd his political banner on
which he has emblazoned his own
name, as the candidate in this riding as
the Liberal-Labor party, which party is
a recent creation of his own vivid imagination, which he at times allows to run
Mr. Macdonald owes his elevation to
the provincial house principally to the
suffrage of the labor element of the
Rossland riding, and it is a wonder,
tinder the circumstances, that ho entertains such hostility to the labor and
socialist members of provincial legislature. In one breath, when on the
rostrum, he denounces these labor members in strong terms, while in tho next
he asks the labor element to vote for
him and to rally and hurrah for his so
called Liberal-Labor party.

It was conclusive and convincing.
They were deserting her.
"Oh, oh, oh! The cowards!" sobbed
Beverly iu rage and despair. "I must
go on! Is It possible that even such
men would leave"���
Sbe was interrupted by the voice of
the officer, who, raising his cap to-per,
commanded at the .same time the driver to turn his horses and follow the
escort to Balak.
"What is that?" demanded Beverly
Io alarm.
From fui off came the sound of fire
arms. A dozen shots were fired and
reverberated down through the gloomy
pass ahead of the coach.
"They are fighting somewhere lu the
hills iu front of us," answered the now
frightened officer. Turning quickly, he
saw the deserting horsemen halt, listen
u minute and iben spur their horses.
He cried out sharply to tbe driver:
"Come, there! Turn round! We have
uo time to lose!"
With a savuge griu, the hitherto
motionless driver hurled some Insulting remark ut the officer, who was already following his men, now in full
flight down the road, nnd, settling himself firmly on lhe scut, taking ti fresh
grip of tlie reins, he yelled to his
horses, nt the same time lashiug them
furiously with his -whip, and started
the coachi ahead at a fearful puce. His

By this time they hnd struck a descent in the rood nud were rushing
ulong at breakneck speed Into oppressive shadows that bore the first Imprints of night, localizing ut last that
her cries were fulling upon purposely
deaf ears, Beverly Calhoun sank buck
into the seat, weak nud terror stricken.
It wns plain to her that the horses were
not running away, for the man had
been lashing them furiously. There
was but one couclusion���he was deliberately taking her farther Into the
mountain fustnesses, his purpose
known only to himself. A hundred terrors presented themselves to her as
she lay huddled against the side of the
coach, her eyes closed tightly, her tender body tossed furiously about with
the sway of the vehicle. There was (lie
fundamental fear that she would lie
dashed to death down the side of the
mountain, but apart from this her
quick brain was evolving all sorts of
possible endings���none short of absolute disaster.
Even as she prayed that something
might Intervene to chock tbe mad rush

driver was heard calling lo bis horses,
and the pace became slower. The awful rocking nnd the jolting grew less
severe, the clatter resolved llself tulo n
broken   rumble,   and   then   lhe   coach
sroppea wltn a nilghty lurch.
Dragging herself from the corner,
poor Beverly Calhotiu, uo longer u disdainful heroine, gazed piteously out
iuto the shadows, expecting the murderous blade of the driver to meet her
ns she did so. I'auloll' had swung from
the box of the couch and wns peering
first iuto the woodland below nud then
upon the rocks to the left, lie wore tbe
expresslou of n mau trapped und seeking means of escape. Suddenly he darted behiud the couch, almost brushing
against Beverly's but as he passed lhe
window. She opened her lips lo cnll
him, but even as she did so he took
to his heels and raced back over the
road they hnd traveled so precipitously.
Overcome by surprise and dismay,
she only could watch the flight In sl-
liuice. Less thuu it hundred feet from
where the coach was standing ho turned to the right nud was lost among the
rocks. Abend, four horses, covered
with sweut, were punting and heaving
as Ir In great distress after their mad
run. Aunt Fanny was still moaning
and praying by turns in the bottom of
the carriage. Darkness was settling
down upon the pass, and objects a hundred yards away wero swallowed by
the gloom. There was uo sound save
the blowing of the tired animals and
the moaning of the old negress. Beverly realized with a slnkiug heart that
they were alone and helpless In the
mountains, with uight upon them.
She never knew where the strength
and courage came from, but she forced
open the stubborn couch door nnd
scrambled to the ground, looking fruu-
tlcully In nil directions for a single
sign of hope. In lhe most despairing
terror she had ever experienced she
started toward the lend horses, hoping
against hope that at least one of her
men had remained faithful.
A mau stepped quietly from the lnuer
side of the road and advanced with the
uncertain trend of one who Is overcome
by amazement. He was a stranger
and wore an odd, uncouth garb. The
falling light told her that he was nut
oue of her late protectors. She shrank
back with a faint cry of alarm, ready
to fly to the protecting arms of hopeless
Aunt Fanny if her uncertain legs could
carry her. At the same Instant nnother
ragged stranger, then two, three, four
or five, appeared as if by magic, some

The man sbe had first observed stop-

intently at her from beneath a broad
and rakish hat. He was tall and appeared to be more respectably clad
than his fellows, although there was
uot one who looked ns though he possessed a complete outfit of wearing ap-

cried rapidly, eager to have it over.
"Pray, how can your highness proceed? You have no guide, no driver,

Beverly looked nt him appeallngly, utterly without words to reply. The
tears were welling to her eyes, and her
heart was throbbing like that of a captured bird. In after life she was able
to picture in her mind's eye all the
details of that tableau In the mountain pass���the hopeless coach, the
steaming horses, the rakish bandit nnd
his picturesque men, the towering
crags and n uilte of a girl facing tho
end of everything.

lhe leader pleasantly. "Your escort
has lied as though pursued by something Stronger than shadows; your
driver has deserted; your horses are
half dead; you are indeed, us you have
said, powerless. And you are, besides
all these, lu the clutches of a band of
merciless cutthroats."
"Oh," moaned Beverly, suddenly
leaning ngnlnst the fore wheel, her
eyes almost starting from her head.
The lender laughed quietly���yes, good
utitlll'edly.   "ph, ytju won't���yjju won't

there were smiles on the faces of all
the men within the circle of light.
"Best assured, your highness," said
the leader, leaning upou his rifle bar-
rel with careless grace, "we Intend no
harm to you. Every mau you meet In
Graustark Is not a brigand, 1 trust,
for your sake. We are simple hunters,
and not what we may seem. It Is
fortunate that you have fallen Into
honest hands. There Is some one In
tho coach?" he asked, quickly alert. A
prolonged groan proved to Beverly that
Aunt Fanny had screwed up sufficient
courage to look out of the window.
"My old servant," she half whispered. Then, as several of the men
started toward the door: "But she Is
old aud wouldn't harm a fly. Please,
please don't hurt her."
"Compose yourself; she Is safe,"
said the leader. By this time It was
quite dark. At a word from him two
or three men lighted lanterns. The
picture was more weird than ever lu
the fitful glow. "May I ask, your highness, bow do you intend to reach Edelweiss In your present condition? You
ennuot manage those horses aud, besides, you do uot know the way."
"Aren't you going to rob us?" demanded Beverly, hope springing to the
surface with a Joyful bound. The
stranger laughed heartily and shook
his hond.
"Do we not look like honest men?"
he cried, with a wave of his hand toward his companions. Beverly looked
dubious. "Wo live tbo good, clean life
of the wilderness. Outdoor life Is necessary for our health. We could uot
live In the city," he went ou, with grim
humor. For the first time Beverly noticed that he wore n huge black patch
over his left eye, hold in place by a
cord. He appeared more formidable
than ever under the light of critical Inspection
"1 am very much relieved," said Beverly, who was not at all relieved. "But
why have you stopped us In this manner?"
"Stopped you?" cried tbe man with
the patch. "I Implore you to unsay
that, your highness. Your coach was
quite at a standstill before we knew of
Its present*, i'ou do ns a grave Injustice."
"It's very strange," muttered Beverly, somewhat taken aback.
"Have you observed that It Is quite
dark?" asked the leader, putting away
his brief show of Indignation.
"Dear me; so It Is!" cried she, now
able to think more clearly.

Une  of  the  most   impressive  cures
of  indigestion   nnd   allied    ailments

by  Bileans  in Toronto.    The subject
is Mr. Arthur R. Hand, a prominent
leaclier of painting on qliinu, leather,
glass,  etc.,  residing  at 2 Woodgreen
Place, Toronto.
As a teacher of pointing, Mr. Hand
has made for himself it wide reputation, but his work was interfered
with considerably by acute attacks
of digestive disorder.    He says:
"I suffered ngonics for months previous to taking Bileans, resorted to
.all kinds of remedies, but found Only
temporary relief. The indigestion

There was a constant feeling of uncomfortable fullness in the stomach,

medicines seemed to have nny effect,

Why It Had to Give Place to the System   Now   In   Use���About
Time Measurement.
There Is a story In Plutarch which
must convince every reader that one
myth at least relates to an alteration
made In the Egyptian calendar to extend the length of the year from 360
days to 865. A year of 360 days existed
In Egypt at an early period. The lunar
month, from new moon to new moon,
being twenty-nine and one-half days In
length, the convenient round number of
thirty days was taken as a standard,
and twelve months, of thirty days each,
made up the year. The solar year is
more difficult to observe than the lunar
month, the Intervals being longer, and
a year of 360 days was a very convenient and reasonable approximation to
It. At any rate, the year of 360 days
came Into use, and a curious custom
at Acanthae, near Memphis, seems to
allude to It. A perforated vessel was
filled with water by 860 priests on each
day of the year. In the Island of Phl-
lae, again, 360 pitchers were placed
around tho tomb of Osiris, for malting
funeral libations, and were filled everyday by tho priests with milk. With
IHO days In the year the ecliptic circle
of the heavens, as represented in the
charts, would be divided Into 360 equal
parts, and we must regard It as a relic
of this time that the circle Is sttil
made to consist of 360 degrees. But
so erroneous an estimate of the length
of the year would soon be corrected
by experience.
It Is evident that in about seventy-
two years a cycle would be accomplished In which the New Tear's day would
sweep through all the months, remaining only six years In each. Ths* same
month, so far as Its name was concerned, would now be In the Inundation time, now In the season of sowing
and anon In the time of reaping, and
the agriculturist must have been perplexed. A text In the papyrus Anastasl
makes reference to sueh perplexity and
may receive Its explanation here. Goodwin translated It: "May Amen deliver
me from the cold season, when the sun
does not shine, the winter comes Instead of the summer, the month Is
stormy, the hours shortened."
Similar confusion would overtake the
religious festivals, the New Year, for
example, coming five days before Its
proper time, and then ten days before},
and so on, and it might be thought that
Its observance at the wrong season
would dls?dease the gods. The year of
360 days had to give way and ultimately
did so in favor of one of 365 days. .The
precise date of the change Is not known,
but It la referred to In Inscriptions
of tho time of Amenemha I. (circa
2400 B. C.) and may of course have
been Introduced much earlier. When
this was done the original months were
not altered, but a "Utile month" of five
days was Interpolated at the end of
the year between the month Mesorl of
one year and the Thoth of the next.���

The   Demand    Fur   Their   Skins   Ha*
Nearly Exterminated Them.
"An alligator Is a rare thing In the
southern states now," said O. B. Bunge
of Pensacola, Fla.
"Where they could be seen In hun
dreds ten years ago, dotting the banks
of the rivers nnd swimming In the
Florida swamps, the sight Is now becoming a very uncommon one. The
great demand for their skins has practically exterminated the creatures, arid
they will soon be ns scarce as the
western buffalo. Some may still be
found lu the Everglades and other
swamps, but they are rarely seen, as
they live In mudholes to which even
the Semlnoles cannot gain access.
"The few thnt are captured are
caught by menus of strategy, as the
open water shooting Is a thing of the
past. A strict watch Is kept over
their holes, aud the moment the gntor
appears he Is lassoed ami draggetl
bodily from his home. It Is a very
dangerous method while In the water,
and It requires the combined force of a
dozen men to drug an eight foot alligator to the mainland. Even when this
is done the captors are wary, us a
blow from the creature's tall would
seriously disable the stoutest man.
"An alligator Is slow and clumsy In
his movements, but can swing his tnll
around In the twinkling of the eye.
The Indians generally wait until they
have the anlmnl In a position where
he cannot use his tall aud theu sever
tho ligaments with a well directed
blow of their sharp Instruments. Tbe
government has taken the bounty off
the alligators, which in former years
was a great source of revenue to the
shiftless Crackers that inhabit the
swamps and make their living In the
easiest possible manner. The price of
the skins hns become double what It
was a few years ago, and it will not be
long before the dealers will have to
find some substitute for the skin of the
alligator."���Milwaukee Sentinel.

Peculiar  LIkIiI   Giving   Anliuala.
A peculiar light giving animal found
iu southern Callforulan waters is the
heferopod.    The   heteropods.  dazzling
white uud almost shapeless, can oflen

Their  bodies  are  almost  transparent
and they  have  in addition  lo a  long
\ tail a powerful sucker, by which they
j cling  to  seaweed.     When  these crea-
|  lures are irritated  they seem  to  emit
a light  from all over the body, though
i one -writer describes one lu which the
I light���.red in this case���seemed to null-
I ate from the center of the animal.   Of
I nil  the light giving animals Ihe sulpn
! is suld to be the most wonderful.   Like
I the heteropod, this animal Is provided
wilh claspers that enable it to fusion
| to seaweed and rocks.   So plentiful are
I they   In  California"!!   waters  that  the
( Santa Catalina channel, which is from
eighteen    to   twenty   miles   wide   and
about forty-five miles long, Is at times
literally covered  with them as fur as
Ihe eye can reach.   Covering the entire
surface and gleaming like gems In tho

lure.    These animals constitute a delicacy   much   sought   for   by   whales.

Tainted Milk In Canada.
The Edinburgh Scotsman cites the
remarks of Professor Harcourt of a

effect that If a commission were appointed In Canada to investigate the

Liverpool'* Advance.
In the course of time Liverpool must
supersede London, points out a Manchester paper. Everything is against
the latter, and Its supremacy has only
beeu retained by artificiality. If England has been discovered at the same
time as America, Liverpool would Inevitably have become the capital.
Commercially, according to the same
authority, It is slowly but surely ousting London.

Near Al'gostoli. a town on one of the
Creek islands, lour little torrents of
sea water, rolling on au average llfty-
llv'e gallons a second, penetrate Into
the fissures nf Iho clIlTs, flow rapidly
Inland and finally gradually disappear
into the crevices of tho soil. Two of
these water courses aro sufficiently
powerful to turn all the year round the
wheels of two mills constructed by
Ull enterprising Englishman. Tills
seems nt lirst sight absurd on the face
of It, but It is quite easily explained.
The hills nf the island are of soft, calcareous rock, lull nf fissures, and suck
up water like Immense sponges. In
ffolisequenco the pools in their subterranean caverns are always lower than
the surround ing sen. so to restore the
balance these little brooks, feel by the
waves, are always descending inland.
The curious yet natural result of the
constant evaporation of the sea water
is that gigantic masses of snlt crystals
are constantly forming in lhe caves.���

Editor   Dauphin   Herald
The present editor of the Dauphin
Herald is one of the many progressive and ambitious young men who
have left tlie domain of Uncle Sam
to seek fame and tortune in tlie
"l.nst West." Versatile in his accomplishments and pleasing in hjs
address, it is no wonder that ho is
finding Western Canada as a Held
for ambitious endeavor all that could
be desired, and is meeting in a remarkable degree with the success
that awaits all young men of his
stamp in tlie new towns of this new
and vigorous country.
Mr. Moore was born nl Monmouth,
Illinois, in 1HI57. He attended public
school till 14 yenrs of age, and after
this was variously engaged, working
first on the farm, leaving this to
' follow tlie printers' trade for' three
years, then in a railroad ofiice for a
similar length of time. Ho took up
editorial work in 1882 in lowu. South
Dakota, nnd for u short time in St.
Pati'i"' Minn. From this place lie was
appointed to a clerkship in tlie census office at Washington, D.C., which
he filled for three years up to 1903.
Mr. Moore hud begun rending law in
1894, and after leaving the census
bureau, went into the practice of law
in lowu. It was while ut Washington he took a post-graduate course at
the National University of Law in
11102. He also received n degree in
Patent Law in 1903. He was "special
examiner" of all tlie schedules relating to "printing, publishing and periodicals" in the census office, and hud
to supervise the examination and
editing of tlie schedules of over
twenty-four thousand copies���such as
preparing reports of amounts invested in property, machinery, wages
paid, etc.
In spite of the comfort of this position, the lure of the west called him
to Manitoba, in 1904, and he assumed charge of the Dauphin Herald in
October of that year. In addition to
his editorial work Mr. Moore travels
north nnd west of Dauphin as general agent for the Sawyer-Massey
Mrs. Moore is then in charge as
manager and local editor for the
greater part of the time, and is to
be complimented on tlie fact that the
paper, which depends on her for a
great part of its success, is showing
superior care und typographical excellence in keeping with the progressive town in which it is published.
It is to be hoped that Mr. and Mrs.
Moore will long be spared to follow
their excellent calling, and that they
will be plentifully endowed with this
world's goods as a just remuneration
for their services in tlie cause of
their town nnd country.

Market Prospects in Japan.
Writing to the Daily Consular and
Trade Reports at Washington, Con-
sul-General H. B. Miller of Yokohama, says thot the effect of the new
Japanese tariff on the trade of lf,07
is somewhat problematical. It was
evidently designed to check imports
in many lines and to encourage home
production. Should general crop itiiel
other conditions continue favorable,
the consul-general is inclined to tlie
view that even the high tariff, which
went into effect last month, will not
hnve any very serious effect on the
trade. Many articles are protected b,
conventional tariffs until 1911, and i.
the result of ihe protective fenture.-
of lhe new duties should he to stimulate l'trnie production, new implements, machinery, und plants would

Little Marjory is fond of cake, but,
lest she appear too greedy her parents
nave carefully taught her when a plate
3f cake is offered always to take the
piece nearest her. This rule of eti-
ijtiette, "Always take the piece nearest
yon," has been repeated to Marjory
till she has had it thoroughly impressed upon her.
Marjory and her mother were dining
at a neighbor's bouse the other day
wheu a plate of delicious cake was
passed around. Despite much urging,
she steadily refused to have any cake.
Her mother wns surprised, but let the
matter pass for the time being. It was
after the return home when her mothet
asked Marjory why she had refused to
have any cake at the neighbor's house
that day.
"Well, mamma," she answered, with
a plaintive sigh, "you told me always
to take the piece of cake nearest me,
didn't you? Well, there wasn't nny
piece nearest me. It was all over on

Dr. Zumeuhaf, the iuventor of Esperanto, went through a trying ordeal at
the conclusion of the recent Esperanto
congress at Geneva. Hundreds of the
departing delegates shook him with
every show of affection. This he bore
with patience. But when the Esperant-
Ists of the other sex insisted on kissing
him goodby the fortitude that had
stood by him so well throughout the
conference deserted him. He broke

British  Women's  Larger  Feet.
Are .British women's feet growing
larger? The fact thai the boot and
shoe manufacturers of Leicester and
Northampton, who are now catering
for the footwear fashions of next spring
and summer, are offering sizes up to
eights, would seem tu show a tendency
In   Ihat  direction.
With what withering scorn a blushing British maiden would have looked
at a ��hop assistant who dared to suggest "s*s" to her a few years ago! Hui

"We have found lately a -pedal demand for girls' boots in 7's and 8's.-'
Another Leicester factory has hail to
throw away all Its old lusts for children, in response to loud complaints
.'rc:n buyers, "In the North particularly." and to make the standards of next
year's fitting for children somewhat
easier. Even the nursery and children's
vrear attributes the change In part to
the effect of the recent sandal craiio In
expanding young feet.
Manufacturers are now offering for
next year's fashions lower heels and
broader rounded toes; "the extreme
pointed toe," they declare with one ao-
"ord, "Is doomed."

healthy farmer. He works his own farm
near Magnetawan, Ont.
" I caught my cold working aa a fireman
on the C.P.R." he continued. "I bad
night sweats, chills and fever and frequently coughed up pieces of my lungs. 1 was
sinking fast and the doctors said them
was no hope for me. Two months treatment of Psychine put mo right on my feel
and I hi.vc had no return of lung trouble
If Mr. Mumford had started to take

would have saved himself a lot of anxiety
