But it is Possible that Boomer
Ledge Was Uncovered
By tiie Slide.
A disastrous landslide occurred
the Vancouver mine on Saturday lust)
causing several thousand dollars worth
of damage to the company's property.
A 11,000 ft. flume has recently been
constructed, running from Granite
creek, anil traversing the mountain
pile between lhe Vancouver and .Mountain Boomer mines. This Hume, wliich
is not yet fully completed, is intended
to curry water to be used as power for
the recently installed compressor plant
und it appears that somebody opened
the flood gate, and the tremendous
volume of water seeped through the
caith 20 ft. to bedrock with the nsult
that a big slide was caufed, 40 feet
wide at its base, and increasing aa it
went, to several hundred feet. It filled
Four mile creek below  and turned  the
i.vv of water into the wa^on road,
wliih was totally demolished for .",00
yards. The cur*cut of gravel and
water then poured down the road until
it struck the compressor bunk-house,
which was filled with gravel8 feet deep.
This bunkhouse is twelve feet from the
wagon road, and being an obslaclu to
the flow, it diverged into two streams,
one of which carried away the new
bridge recently constructed by lhe Vancouver Mining Co. All the contents of
the bunkhouse were washed away.
It is, however, possible thut the disaster will be the nii*aii<i of bringing untold wealth lo the coffers of the Vancouver company, as the slide was Instrumental in uncovering the Mountain
Boomer ledge, one hundred yards below
tlie lowest workings. Naturally the
company are Jubilant over thi*', but as
we go to preTs. nobody bus closely
scanned the outcrop, owing to the preponderance of mud. The ledge with
its precious content can be seen at n
distance howivrr, but until the mud
bus si tt !��� d il is lot safe for any mnn
to go near. It may prove a blessing in

The "Kootenay Liberal," printed
at Nelson  on  th. plant of  the defunct
Canadian," is a ptuely patthsan sheet
that has bibbed up to boost faniilli-
Curtis's candidature and, inciilcnt!**!^
swell tlie loud nut hem of praise wilh
others of its ilk for the Liberal party.
No. 4 is the first that has met our gaze,
but if there was nothing more substantial in its utterances of the three pre
viou3 numbers, then it should he passed
up liy lovers of clean tactics.
Under the caption of "The Premier's
Lillle Jaunts,'1 written assuredly for no
oilier purpose than to detract from the
real  mission of the Premier, and  to
aim a dollop of mud with Hie hope that
some of  it  might stick,  the Kootenay
Liberal says:
" All these Utile jaunls are ostensibly
on "government business " und " in
tlie Inteiesl of the province."   At the
same lime thev provide verv pleasant
summer  trips   for   lhe luuribls, and,
incidentally, (live au opportunity for
wiilespieaii campaign work whicli
could not otherwise be Secured save
at great expense. The province pays
lhe bills- for are tliey not incurred ill
the pursuit of government business V
And the premier, h*s colleagues und
ins loiioweis reap the pleasures and
the rewinds. The Conservatives point
oui with gleeful pride that Hon.
Richard Moliiido is the first premier
of the province who ever personally
visited every district to become acquainted with its needs. Wo beg to
add tbut he is likewise tho iirsl premier who ever thought il proper lo
ns�� public funds for pleasure trips and
ctitnpalgu touis."
There is a strrak of narrow miiidcd-
edne.-s iu the topnot of the editor of thu
Kootenay Liberal that he should stope
out. These sniggers of disparagement
savor of the fox and the grapes policy
on the one hand, and a puerile at enipt
to resume a campaign of blander that so
ignoimnioualy failed at the lust provincial election.
It does not strike (be misguided editor ot the latest political Ihunderei*
that us a man of keen business acumen
Mr. MeBride is but creating a new departure that none of his predecessors
hud savvy enough to think out. Il does
not strike hiin Ihut the smaller towns
have been given the dirty go by hithcrlo
hv premiers, and that he is assimilating
knowledge by personal observation and
establishing a splendid precedent. I_f be
makes friends by so doing���Goo. !   Il
is but natural that the Grit editors
should howl with rage, aud mud balls
like lhe above sample slung. The
machine must have been given a violent
twist to have squeezed that spasm from
the editor.
When Sir Wilfrid Lanrier makes his
long promised visit to British Columbia,
it will be qiiite in order, according to
the ethics of the Koolenay Liberal for
that journal to hurl some of its own
mud at him for " Using i*uhmc funds

In the innards, too much alleged
boozerino, a poetic nature unapreclated,
and other piffle that does not jibe with
the rubrics of the slate church, nor fits

" It is time to pause and ask whither
ia the Canadian strawberry drifting?
So far the strawberry of the class of
1008 has been a pleasure to the eye and
a disappointment to the tast��. Size,
color, everything but flavor, has been
characteristic of the 1908 strawberry
A fruit that has a sifter, richer, more
luscious color than a glowing sunset and
tastes like a lemon���such is the strawberry that has been on sale this season.
Growers may raise a strawberry that
cun he packed and kept, and fail to
raise a strawberry that can be eaten
with relish. The season of 1008 has
produced a fruit that is big and red, but
sour us the grapes on the vines of disappointment or the smile of a defeated
candidate.���Toronto Telegram.
Rats!   Ju.u Iry Denver berries!
We were at the Dominion Fair at
Calgary last week wilh our old college
chums Black, Clever, l*"yfe, Welsh and
Tyo, and whilst there mixed it with
another bunch of boys from this silvery
land from the Knslo end. We saw
others with jags and other men's wives,
but ns this is not a society journal we
refrain from further trimmings.
Speaking of the great Fair, it was a
huge success. Ne'son had a stand there
that was crowded with sightseers from
mom till dewy eve, and from observation we are satisfied that lhe Nelson
business men made no mistake when
tliey decided upon the enterpiise. At
lhe R'Velstoke stand, Art. Johnson of
the Ma-1-llerald, lauded the merits of
ihat city and district, a particular feature being a splendid display of ores.
Both exhibits were thoroughly representative and the best of their class beyond
a doubt. It seemed to us that every
district in the province was represented
by an exhibit, but poor old Bounteous
Slocan had ne'er a boost nor a scratch
of a pen to tell the multitude it was
on the map,
How long, O Lord, how long ?
Here is an incident of local interest
It happened just after the airship was
blown up that a second cyclone struck
a refreshment booth, and the entire
roof whizzed across an improvised grand
stand, huiiing a large number of spectators to the ground, seriously injuring
many and fatally injuring an old rancher
from Innisfail. From out of the crowd
there sprang four Slocan men to render
first aid to the injured, and a strange
coincidence appears in tlie face that
these men though well acquainted were
not aware of each other's attendance
at the Fair, and these four men lifted
tbe poor old fellow tenderly into the
ambulance van. We can vouch for this
because we were one of the four. Jack
Black was struck on the head with a
piece of flying lumber, but he has been
a policeman in the mountains too long
to take notice of a trifle like that.
There was a bunch of newspaper men
from Oregon and Montana at the Dominion Pair last week, and Bob Edwards
of the Calgary Eye*Opqner was introducing tlie scribes to some western
bandits. " Say, you fellows, here's
another of 'em ; shake hands with the
editor of the Slocan Review," and immediately we were mussed and fussed
over and given the seat of honor at the
prevailing sacrifice to Bacchus. After
some of the guys had ginned up a time
or two, one more confiding than the
rest turned to us and said: " Well, and
how's Spokane ? "
"Spokane!" we exclaimed in surprise, "We don't come from Spokaue.
It's Slocan, S-1-oca-n, God's country,
Slocan! "
" Whazzermar'r with Bob Edwards ?
Didn't he say you were editor of the
Spokane Review ? Good Lord, you'd
better skin before those wallopers get
next. They're all financially bust, and
they're making up to pull your ear down
for fifty to get home with."
We skinned! But oh, the disgrace
of it! Fancy the main cheese of this
great family journal being mistaken for
the yankee editor of a yellow daily!
The strawberry crop is a bumper.
The local price for fresh picked fruit iB
i(2 per crate.
We can assure our friends that great
interest in B.C. fruit lands is being
taken in the east, and particularly docs
it apply to the Kootenay. Tt is not
hard is discover why this valley is not
getting a better quota of settlers. It is
because the dislrict ia not known to the
outside world, In every town of importance east of Revelstoke real estate
men are booming fruit lands, but each
office is devolingits undivided attention
to a particular district, and all give the
glad shout for the section they are interested in. We noticed that no house
offeicd land iu two diirerent districts,
for woiild'nt they be pitting one dislrict
against the other, and they can't all be
"the best." When they are through
with selling land elsewhere, these men
will hit lhe pike for the Slocan, that is
if we let them know we are a sottled
district and can skin them all when it
comes down to actual results. We wrote
several illustrated articles during our
eastern trip, for influential journals,
with a hope that good results would
accrue from the advertising. Our
special edition should prove a powerful
factor in advertising the potentialities
of the district. Its production has been
unavoidably delayed, mainiy through a
preponderance of similar work at the
office of the eastern concern who are
printing it for us. There should be a
great rush for it.
Mission City now has a live, pros
perous-looking weekly pnper, the
" Fraser Valley Record." There are no
flies on the editor, and he should make
enough money out of it to eat regularly,
that is if the people and the merchants
do the square thing by him. J. A.
Bates is the man behind the pen.
This is the season of the year when
the prospector hits lbe trail to bis own
pet prospect, and having stuck in a
couple of slicks of powder, hikes to tlie
recording office and takes an oath that
he has done 10 feet of tunneling, 70
feet of opencuts and other development
Nelson City Council has decided to
adopt mountain time instead of Pacific
time as hitherto. Guess we will have
to do the same whether we like it or
not. At pix o'clock next Sunday evening put your watches on an hour, but
don't blame us if you have to wait an
hour for breakfast the following morning.   Stege and Jakey might jib.
What abont that " Glacier Day "
enterprise ? For goodness sake get a
wiggle on with tlie preliminary arrangements, someone, or the chance will depart for another year. You may rest
assured that the world knows nothing
of our unrivalled asset, but the very
least the townspeople ran do is to tuke
concerted action and talk about it.
We are still of opinion that the lead
bounty is a gift to the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co , owners of
the Trail smelter, St. Eugene mine, the
Bluebell and other huge shippers. The
lead producers of the Slocan might possibly get some crumbs from the table
of the " Lead Pipe Olnchers," but there
is as much chance as of pigs flying.
Dou't kick now; tnke your medicine.
Oh, my leg! The staid Nelson News
of Tuesday made this bull: "An explorer found in it an old empty gunny
sack wliich proved to contain a large
assortment of razors and knives."
Regrets are to be heiiid on even
side at the departure of Mr. G. A. Hydi
and family for the coast. Mr. Hyde
for ths past twelve months lias been
iu charge of the C.P.R. depot at New
Denver, in which capacity he has made
a host of friends by his extreme courtesy always to the traveling public and
the company's clientele generally. It
is too had that Ihe interests of New
Denver are not better conserved by   the
railway company in the matter of paying a stipend that would warrant a real
good agent-operator staying with us.
By a senseless flaw in the management
lakeside ports are relegated to the tank
town category on the payroll, so it will
bo readily understood why it is difficult
to retain for any length of time the services of an ambitions man with a family
dependent upon hiin. The company
should consider this matter, as the
growing importance of New Denver warrants something better than any old
thing. Mr. Hyde is going lo a ranch be
is taking near New Westminster, where
he will embark in the fascinating pursuit of fruit farming.
Premier McBride's answer to the
people of Sandon with regard to the
cutting off the trains of thes.Ka.lo and
Slocan Railway is typical of his policy
in all other railway matters. We can
look for a happy solution as the premier
is a veritable thorn in the flesh of railway concerns who want something for
nothing. The N. & 8., Owned by the
C.P.R., and tho K. & S., owned by the
G.N.R., received bonuses in the shape
of about 80,000 acres of the people's
land to build and operate these lines,
and although these large tracts of land
were doled out before MeBride and his
merry mon took the reins of government, it is a pretty safe bet that there
will be something doing when the terms
of the charters are analyzed.
Charlie Nelson, prince of rustlers, is
going on a three month's trip to the
" land o' cakes" as delegate to the
Supreme Lodge K, ol P. to be held at
Edinburgh. It will be strange if Charlie
doesn't plav old gooseberry with the
hearts of the lassies in the lowlands,
and it would be stranger still if many a
feminine heart here doesn't go pit-a*pat
until he returns.
Says the Nelson News: A visitor from
the nortli end of Slocan lake tells a etory
which may explain the disposition of
part of the goods stolen last week from
the Wood-Vallance Hardware company's
Btore, though it affords no clue to the
identity of the thieves. Supposedly an
empty box car was backed on to a tiding
at Rosebery. An explorer found in it
an old gunny sack, which proved to
contain a large assortment of razors and
knives. As no word of the robbery in
Nelson had reached Rosebery at that
time, the spoils were divided as a
matter of course. Evidently the burglars had chosen the empty box car, probably in the Nelson yards at the time,
as a safe place of temporary deposit for
their booty, retaining ouly the revolvers.
The compositor who first set in type
the proverb, "Truth is Mighty," apparently left out the word "Inconvenient."

Minister of Education Say
New Denver Children
Are Top-Notchers
New Denver citizens are proud of
their schools, proud ol the scholars,
and proud of the tutors who have brought
the schools to their present state of
elTioiency. So high do tbey rank on
the list of premier e*.*ucutional houses,
that a spoiliaeons public tribute was
elicited from the Minister of Education
during his visit wilh the Premier hero
a few days ago. Dr. Young said that
New Denver schools showed the highest percentage of efficiency in the province, and iu Mr. T. T. Rankine they
bad the best teacher of public schools
British Columbia possessed. The work
of the children was criticized and
praised in an in stinting manner.
The exhibition given by tbe scholars
before the premier drew from him encomiums to the effect that he had
never witnessed prettier work. We
all know lhe capabilities of tho rising
generation of this town, and it but confirms our well grounded assertion that
nowhere in Canada do better scholastic
facilities prevail. It was meet therefore, at the meeting of school trustees
held on Saturday evening last, that Mr.
Rankine should be rewarded for his
zeal and ability, and this reward took
shape In an increase to his Btipend of
$10 p,-r month.
Dr. Young also mentioned that the
government would be willing to establish a high school here providing that
twenty scholars were entered.
When the school trustees met for the
annual meeting on Saturday last, it
was with n feeling that all had faithfully rendered an account of tlieir
stewardship, the only rogretable feature
being tha retirement of Mr. A. St.
Clair Brindle, who will be shortly leaving the town. Mr. A. Mclnnes, mining
recorder, was unanimously elected in
his stead. Mr. J. E. Angrignon's term
of office expired, but ho was again elected by acclamation. Mr. J. B. Smith
was also re-appointed auditor. A Btim
of money wgs voted for improving the
exterior and interior of both junior and
senior sclioolhouses.
Tbe meeting was a very unanimous
one and words of praise accompanied tho
increase of salary to Mr. Rankine.
Beautiful weather prevailed on Wednesday afternoon when the members of
the Methodist church gave a garden
party on the magnificent lawn of A.
St. Clair Brindle. It waB a great financial and social success. The dresses ot
the ladies present were wondrous specimens of the creative abilities of the
local fashion builders, and the amount
of ice-Oream consumed was such Ihat a
goodly portion of the Denver glacier is
now in extremis. The treasury of the
Methodist church has been enriched
about $-15 by the sale of the toothsome
cream. A largo crowd remained on the
grounds until darkness covered it.

Spokane Interstate Fair.
Efforts are being made by Robert H.
Cosgrove, manager* of the Interstate
Fair, which will be held in Spokane,
October 5 to 10, inclusive, to secure a
one-way fare for the round trip from
all railroads running into Spokane,
that patrons of the big inland fair maybe given a better rate than ever before.
In past years the best that the railroads have done for the Interstate Fair
was to give a round trip for a fare and
a third. It is believed that a reduction
of the former rate to u straight one-
fare basis for the round-trip will result beneficial, both for thn Interstate
Fair and the railroads. flit   SLOCAN   MINING   REVIEW,   NEW   DENVER,   B. C.

THE desperadoes were as much
astonished as was De Catinat
wben they found that they bad
recaptured iu this extraordinary manner the messenger whom
they bud given up for lost.
"A thousand thunders!" cried one.
"And this is the man whom that devil's
brat Latour would make out to be
"And how cnme lie here?"
"And whtfre Is Etienne Arnaud?"
"He has stubbed Etienne, and taken
his coat und hat."
"Whut! While we were all within

"Aye, there Is no other way out of
"By my soul," cried old Despard, "I
hud never much lovo for old Etienne,
but 1 have emptied a cup of wine with
hlm before now, and I shall see that he
has justice. Let us cast these reins
Lfiund the fellow's neck and hang hlm
uporTtliis tree."
Several pairs of bunds were already
unbuckling the harness of the dead
horse when De Vivonne pushed his
way Into the little group.
"It is as much ns your lives are worth
to touch him," said be.
"Hut he has slain Etienne Arnaud."
"Ihat score may be settled afterward. Tonight he is the king's messenger.   Is the other all safe?"
"Yes, he Is here."
"Tie this man and put him In beside
bim. Uubuclcle the traces of the dead
horse. So! Now, De Camac, put your
own Into the harness. You can mount
the box and drive, for we have not
very far to go."
The changes were rapidly made.
Amos Green was Ihrust in beside De
Catinat, and the carriage was soon
tolling up the steep lucliue which It
had come down so precipitately. The
American bad said not a word since
his capture and bad remained absolutely stolid, with his bauds crossed
over his chest while his "fate was under discussion. Now that he was alone
once more with his comrade, however,
ho frowned and muttered.
"Those Infernal horses!" ho grumbled. "Why, an American horse would
have taken to the water like a duck.
Once over the river, we should have
bad n clear lead to Paris."
"My dear friend," cried De Catlnat,
faying his manacled bauds upon those
of bis comrade, "how nobly you bave
Btood by me! But how came you there?
Never in my life have I beeu so astonished us when I saw your face."
Amos Green chuckled to himself. "I
thought that maybe it would bo a surprise to you if you knew who was
driving you," said he. "Wbeu I was
thrown from my horse I lay quiet,
partly because it seemed to me to be
more healthy to lie than to stand with
all those swords clinking iu my cars.
Then tbey all got round you, and I
rolled into the ditch, crept along it, got
on the crossroad in the shadow of the
trees and was beside the carriage before ever tbey knew that I was gone. I
saw iu a flash that there was only ono
way by which I could bo of use to you.
Tho coachman was leaning round, with
his head turned, fo see what was going
on behind him. I out with my knife,
sprung up on the trout wheel and
stopped his tongue."
"And then'.'"
"I pulled him dowu into the ditch,
and 1 got into his coat nnd his hat. I
hud hardly got the reins before they
wore all buck and bundled you Into the
couch. I was not afraid of their seeing me, but I was scared lest I should
not know which road to take, and so
set them on the trail. But they made It
easy to me by sending souie of their
riders in front, so I did well until I
saw that by-track und made u run for
The guardsman again pressed his
comrade's bauds. "You have been as
true to me as hilt to blade," suid he.
"It was a bold thought and a bold
"And what now?" asked the American.
"I do not know who these men are,
and I do not know whither they tire
taking us. I fancy that they are taking us to some place where they can
shut us up until this business blows
"Well, they'll need to be smart ubout
"Else inaybo they won't find us when

"What do you mean?"
Eor answer the American, with a
twist and a wriggle, drew his two
hands apart and held them lu front of
.his comrade's face.
"Bless you, it's lhe first thing they
teach the papooses In un Iudiun wigwam! I'ut your hands out." With a
few dexterous twists he loosened De
Catlnat's bonds until he also was able
to slip his hands free. "Now for your

But at that moment tbe carriage began to slow down, and the clunk of the
hoofs of the riders In front of them
died suddenly away. Peeping through
the windows, the prisoners saw a huge,
dark building stretching in front of
them, so high nnd so broad that, the
night shrouded it in upon every side.
A great archway hung above them,
und the lumps shone on tho rude wooden gate studded with ponderous clamps
and nails. In the upper part of the
door was a small square iron grating,
and through this they could catch a
glimpse of the gleam of a lantern and
of a bearded face which looked out at
them. De Vivonne, standing In bis stirrups, craned his bead up toward the
grating, so that the two men most interested could hear little of the conversation which followed. Tbey saw
only that the horseman held a gold
ring up in the air and that tho face
above, which had begun by shaking
and frowning, was now nodding and
smiling. An Instant later the head
disappeared, .the door swung oueu up- '
on screaming niiiscs, ana tne carriage
drove on luto the courtyard beyond,
leaving the escort, witb tbe exception
of De Vivonne, outside. As the horses
pulled up, a knot of rough fellows clustered round, and the two prisoners
were dragged roughly out. In the light
of the torches which flared around
them they could see that they were
hemmed iu by high turreted walls
upon every side. A bulky man with a
bearded face, the same whom they had
seen at the gratiug, was standing in
the center of the group of armed meu
Lssuing his orders.
"To the upper dungeon, Simon!" he
cried. "And see that they bnve two
bundles of straw and a loaf of bread
until we learn our master's will."
"I know not who your master may
be," said De Cutinnt, "but I would ask
you by what warrant he dares to stop
two messengers of tho king while
traveling in his service?"
"By St. Denis, if my master play
the kiug a trick, it will be but tie und
tie," tho stout man answered, with a
grin. "But no more talk! Away wilh
them, Simon, and you answer to mo
for their safe keeping."
It was in vain that De Catinat raved
nnd threatened, invoking the most terrible menaces upon all who were concerned in detaining bim. Two stout
knaves thrusting him from behind and
one dragging lu front forced hlm
through n narrow gate and along a
stoue flagged passage. Tbey made
tbelr way down three successive corridors and through three doors, each of
which was locked and barred behind
them. Then they ascended a winding
stouo stair, nnd finally they wero
thrust Into n small square dungeon,
and two trusses of straw wero thrown
ln after them. An Instant later a
heavy key turned In tbe lock, and they
were left to their own meditations.
Very grim and dark those med'tH-
tlons wero in the case of De Catlnat.
A stroke of good luck had made him
at court, and now this other of ill fortune hud destroyed him. There were
his people in Purls, too���his sweet
Adele, his old uncle, who hud been as
good as a father to him. What pro
tector would they have In their
troubles now that be had lost tbe
power tbat might 'r.ave shielded them?
But his energetic comrade had yielded
to no feeling of despondency. The iu-
stuut that the clang of the prison door
had assured him that he was safe
from interruption he had felt all
round the walls and flooring to see
what manner of place this might be.
His search had ended iu the discovery
of a small fireplace at one corner and
of two great clumsy billots of wood,
which seemed to bave beeu left there
to serve as pillows for the prisoners.
Having satisfied himself that the chimney was so small that it was utterly
impossible to pass even his bead up it,
be drew the two blocks of wood over
to the window and was able by placing one above the oilier aud standing
ou tiptoe on the highest to reach the
bars which guarded it. Drawing himself up and using one toe in an inequality of the wall, he managed to
look out on to tho courtyard which
they hud just quitted. Tbe carriage
and De Vivonne were passing out
through the gate as he looked, and he
heard n moment later the slum of the
heavy door and the clatter of hoofs
from the troop of horsemen outside.
The seneschal and bis retainers had
disappeared; the torches, too, were
gone, and, save for the measured tread
of a pair of sentinels In the yard twenty feet beneath hiin, all was silent
throughout the great castle.
Tbo window was large enough to
pass his body through it it were not
for those bars. IIo shook them and
hung his weight upon them, but they
were as thick us bis thumb nud firmly
welded; then, getting some strong hold
for his other foot, he supported himself by one hand, while he picked with
his kuife at tho settiug of the iron. It
was cement, as smooth as glass and as
hard as marble. His knife turned
when he tried to loosen it. But there
was still the stone. It was saudstone,
not so very hard. If he could cut
grooves In It he might be able to draw
out bars, cement and all. He sprang
down to the floor again and was thinking how bo should best set to work
when a groan drew his attention to bis
"Something on your mind?" said
Amos Green, sittins down upon his
billets of wood.   "What was It, then?"
Tbe guardsman here made a movement of Impatience. "What was it?
How can you ask nie when you know
as well as I do the wretched failure
of my mission? It was the king's
wish that the archbishop should marry
them. The archbishop should havo
beeu nt the palace by now. Ah, I can
see the king's cabinet, I can see him
wailing, I can see madame waiting, I
can bear tbem speak of tbe unhappy
De Catlnat"���
"I see all that," said the American
stolidly, "and I see something more."
"What then?"
"I see the archbishop tying tbem up
together. "
"He could not bo at (lie palace."
"On the contrary, he reached thc pa 1-
nco ubout half nn hour ago."
De Catlnat sprang to his feet. At the
palace!" he screamed. "Then who gave
him (he message?'.'
"1 did," said Amos Green.
If the American bad expected to surprise or delight his companion by Ibis
curt announcement he was woofully
disappointed, for De Catlnat approached him with a face which was full of
sympathy nnd trouble.
"My dear friend," said he, "I have
beeu selfish and thoughtless. That fall
from your horse has shaken you more
than you think. Lie down upon this
straw and see If a little sleep may
"I tell you that (he bishop Is there!"
cried Amos Green.
"He Is, bo is," said De Catinat soothingly. "He Is most certainly there. I
trust Hint you have no pain?"
The American raved In the air with
his knotted lists. "You think that I'm
crazed," ho cried, "and, by tho eternal,
you are enough lo make me sol When
I say that I sent the bishop I mean
that I saw to the job. You remember
wbeu I stepped back to your friend tbe
It was the soldier's turn to grow excited now. "Well?" he cried, gripping
the other's arm.
���"Well, when we send a scout into tbe
woods, if the matter Is worth It, we
send a second ono at another hour, and
so one or other comes back with his
balr on. That's the Iroquois fashion,
and a good fashion too."
"My Goo, 1 believe that you have
saved me!"
"I went back to the major then, and
I asked hlm when he was In Paris to
pass Ly the archbishop's door. I showed him this lump of chalk. 'If we've
been there,' said I, 'you'll see a great
cross on the left side of tbe doorpost.
If there's no cross, then pull the latch
aud ask the bishop if he'll come up to
the palace as quick as his horses cau
bring him.' The major started an bout
after us. He would be in Paris by half
past 10; the bishop would be iu his carriage by 11, and be would reach Versailles half an hour ngo���that is to say,
about half past 12. By the Lord, 1
think I've driven him off his head!"
De Catinat spun round the cell now.
waving his arms and his legs, with his
shadow capering up the wall behind
him, all distorted In the moonlight.
"Oh, it I could but do something for
you!" he exclaimed.
"Y'ou can, then. Lie down on that
straw and go to sleep."
By persuasions nnd u little pushing
he got his delighted companion on to
his couch again and heaped the straw
over hiin to serve as n blanket.
So weary was the young guardsman
that It was long past noon and the
sun was shilling out of a cloudless blue
sky before he invoke. Pot* a moment,
enveloped us be was in straw, nnd
with the rude arch of the dungeon
meeting In font* i-oiif.li hewn grolulngs
above his head, he stared about bim
in bewilderment. Then in an instant

Mon. the anihiisrnde, his Itiiiu'lsoi'tneii'-

to bis feet. Ills comrade, wbo had
been dozing in lhe corner, Jumped up
also ut the lirst movement, with bis
baud ou his knife nnd a sinister
gliineo directed toward the door.
"Ob,  it's  you,  Is  it?"   said  be.    "I
thought it was the man.   They brought
those two loaves and a jug of water
Just about dawn, when I wus settling
down for a rest."
"And did he say anything?"
"No; it was the little black one."
"Simon, they called hlm."
"The same.   He laid the things down
and was gone.    I thought that maybe
If he came again wo might get bim to
stop.    Maybe if we got these stirrup
leathers   round  bis   ankles  he  would
lull us where we nre aud whut is to

"Pshaw! What does It matter since
our mission is done?"
"It may not matter to you���there's
no accounting lor tastes���but it matters a good deal to me. I'm not used
lo sitting in a hole, like a bear iu a

"There's no help but patience, my
"I don't know that. I'd get more

He opened bis coat and took out a
short piece of rusted irou and three
small, thick pieces of wood, sharpened
at oue cud.
"Where did you get those, then?"
"These nre my night's work. The
bar Is the top one of the grate. 1 bad

The Jury Had to Teach the Pompous
Judge a Lesson.
A certain trial Judge In a certalD
state became so unpopular that tbe
only way he eould get a verdict for the
state was to make his charge hi favor
of the prisoner. When matters had
reached this stage a famous feud fighter was arrested ou a charge of murder
and brought to trial. The case, which
was the Judge's first murder trial, attracted much uttentiou, and tbe judge,
whose unpopularity arose from his
vanity and pomposity, greatly enjoyed
his role as umpire of the law. The
case was n clear one against the defendant, and his guilt was so conclusively proved that the Judge even presumed to charge accordingly. The
Jury retired, and when they filed back
Into court It was noticed that they
avoided the prisoner's eye and looked
unusually solemn.
"Gentlemen," suld the judge, waving
the clerk Into silence, "have you
reached   a verdict?"
"We bave," Aid the foreman.
The judge opened a paper bag and
drew out a black cap. With an Important look around the courtroom he
placed this on his bead aud pulled It
down until It met bis oars.

The    Right    Handling    For    Seedlings.
Water Supply.
By  W.   R.   BEATT1E.     ,        .������
The Ideal climatic conditions for the
production of celery are bright sunshine, pure air, cool nights and a well
distributed rainfall of about eight
inches during tbe growing period in
the field or garden.
In case the grower adopts tbe plan
of transplanting twice the seedlings
will be ready for the first handling la
from four to six weeks from the time
lhe seed is sown. The seedlings may
be transplanted to trays or to beds in
the opeu ground, This transplanting
answers two purposes: First, tbe
seedling plant of celery has a straight
root, or taproot, which is broken in
transplanting, causing u large mass of
fibrous roots to lie formed In the case
of a plant allowed to remain In the
seed bed tiutll planting out time this
taproot has gone fnr down Into the
soil and the plant has formed very
few side roots. Consequently It suffers a great shock in the process of
planting in the Held, and a large number of plants will need to be replaced.
Second, when transplanting twice Is
practiced there is no necessity for thinning, nud a more Uniform lot of plants
is obtained. Two handlings cannot lie
recommended when celery Is grown on
ii large scale, as lhe cost of labor Is loo
great. It Is better to have a surplus
of plants and to renew those that full.
The Growing  Crop.
No definite rules inn be given for the
application of water to a growing crop
of celery, us the requirements vary
with the charaiter of the soil, atmospheric conditions and temperature.
The cost of application should determine largely the extent lo which water
should be used, n nd - ns u rule it is not
profitable to give more than three waterings during the growing season in
addition to the one given nt the time
tbe plants are set In the Held. When
celery Is to be grown on n large scale
It will be desirable, where u natural
water supply cannot be brought Into
service, to provide pumping machinery
aud to give the soil two or three good
soaklngs during the season, especially
In the absence of heavy rains. Celery
requires the most water while making
Its greatest growth, which occurs late
In the summer. As the crop approaches
maturity tlie water should be applied
sparingly, and It should be withheld
altogether for some time before bluueh-
Free Range For the Hog.
Hogs that have pleuty of range and
exercise are uot nearly us susceptible
to disease as those i-onlined in a sniuil
pen. A hog that goes out after his feed
will be well grown and thrifty, accustomed to the elements nnd not liable
to be injured by a sudden change of
weather. It Is difficult to put a good
finish ou hogs while running In a large
pasture. If Ihcy are allowed to run
on good pasture until three weeks or a
inonth before seuding lo market und
are then shut up nnd given ull the corn
tbey want, with plenty of pure water,
they will make very rapid gains.���Cf

The Tangier pea is a native of northern Africa and has been tested quite
extensively lu Cullforuia during the

Second Crops.
By the middle of June some Ilubbard
squash seeds can be put Into potato

matured, the vines can be pulled and
the ground worked up and sown to
rutabagas. Turnips can be put iu after
the early potutoes are dug.
Effect of Legumes.
The effect of legumes upon succeeding crops of uny kind is beneficial because of the fact that the soil Is enriched rather than impoverished by
these plants.
The Busy Crow.
To prevent crows from pulling corn
scatter a few quarts of corn In the field
and keep them busy where tbey are

Forest  Protection Along Railways
Beiore tne advent of the railway, a
beautiful green *orest; a'ter tlie railway is built, only a blackened waste.
Such has often been the case during the construction of a railway;
that there is no necessity for such
to happen bus been proved by actual
experience. Tlie Canada Atlantic
Railway runs through what was one
of the most valuable pineries in Canada. Its builder, Mr. John R. Booth,
was himself a lumberman of long experience, and he placed on his contractors restrictions as to burning
brush and setting fires generally, such
that no forest fire of importance occurred in the whole course of the
building of the railway. In the building of the TemisUaining and Northern
Ontario Railway, too, serious forest
lires have been conspicuous by their
absence, by reason of continual and
watchful patrolling of the line; and
this notwithstanding the fact that the
road runs through some tracts of timber of the greatest value.
During the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway and other
railways, unfortunately, similar vigilance has not been exercised; and we
find that along that lineu-many serious lires took place. To this, more
than to all other causes, is due the
fact that the whole country from Nip*
igon, Out., west to within a short distance east of Winnipeg has been
burnt over���to say nothing of many
tracts in tlie Rockies, covered, until
the railway wis built, with one of the
finest forests in til") world. In lrilili
there was a solid forest stretching
from Nipigon westward nearly to
Winnipeg. Partially burnt at the
time of the passage of the troops to j
suppress the first Kiel rebellion, railway construction In 1882-84 completed the destructioni though even in
1884 one could walk a hundred miles
east of Ljike Superior through un-
burnt  forest.
The building of the Grand Trunk
Pacific furnishes the greatest problem
if the present in forest protection.
Both in the eastern section and in
that now being constructed westward
from Edmonton much danger from
fire must be guarded against. The
authorities of New Brunswick have
conferred with the Dominion authorities as to the taking of steps to guard
against the setting of forest lires during the building of the roud in that
province, where some very valuable
tracts of timber are traversed by the
right of way, and arrangements have
now been made for a patrol of the
lineg this summer. Patrol of the G.
T.P. west of Edmonton, Alta., has
also been arranged and is now in

How the Crazed Empress' Curse Cams
to a Fulfillment.
General Henrico d'Almonte was from
ISO:* to 1SUU tlie ambassador of Em
peror Maximilian of Mexico to tbe
court of"Napoleon III. The most interesting and most pathetic episode to
which D'Almonte was a witness and
which Is vividly described in his
memoirs Is the ineetlug between the
scheming French emperor and Maximilian's wife, the beautiful aud ainbi
tious ("arietta, who shortly before the
Catastrophe ut Quereturo bail come to
Paris to invoke Napoleon's aid for the
tottering throne of ber husband. But
Napoleon III., who for his own per
fldious purposes had by promises and
allurements Induced Maximilian, then
archduke of Austria, to accept the "re
stored" throne of Montezuma, faith
lessly abandoned the unfortunate
prince to his cruel fate as soou as be
realized his schemes to be Impracticable.
Even nt hor arrival In Paris Carlot*
ta's mind was already ln such a high ]
state of Irritation that It was deemed
advisable to have General d'Almonte
at her side during the meeting wilh Na
poleon. which took place in the em
press' apartments at the Grand Hotel
ile Paris.
What lends special Interest to that
Interview Is the fact that the empress,
crazed by desperalion and fear for her
husband's safety and by Napoleon's
unsympathetic attitude, hurled a curse
at the latter which In time was indeed
fulfilled to the very letter.
"The empress." says General d'AI
inoiile, "pleaded, partly on her knees
and In lhe most beseeching terms, with
the stony l**renchinan to no avail. Then
it was that I witnessed lhe most bar
rowing and dramatic scene of my life
Frantic with grief und excitement, the
empress, with drawn mouth and flash
lug eyes, sprang to her feet, extending
both her hands toward the retreating
" 'Leave me,' she yelled ln a voice
which cut through me like a sword-
'leave me. hut go laden with my curse
-tbe same curse that God hurled at
the first murderer. May your own
house aud throne perish amid flames

Strength of Rings.
Some elaborate calculations, backed
by experiments, have been made in
England to determine the breaking
strength of rings. It appears that a
ring of ductile metal, like malleable
Iron, will be pulled out iuto the form
of a long link liefore It breaks and that
tho ultimate strength of the ring is
virtually independent of its diameter
Fracture finally occurs as thc result of
almost pure tension, and the resistance
to breaking is a little less than twice
that of a rod of the same cross section
subjected to a straight pull. As the
ring increases in diameter there ap
pears to be a slight approach toward
equality, with double tbe strength of
a bar. Thus a three inch ring, made
of three-quarter inch Iron, broke at
p.lneteeu and one-half tons, a four Inch
Hug at nineteen and nine-tenths tons
and n six loch ring at twenty tons, the
strength of a bar of the same metal
being ten and one-half tons.

Exp.drr.ents   In  New Zealand  trove
a  Great Success.
News of some remarkable feats ot
rain-making by means of an assault
of the heavens by explosives has come
to Australia from New Zealand
within the past lew. days. The tract
of country in wl 'ch the experiments
took place was North Otago, and the
places chosen were Raki's Table.,
1,060 feet above tbe sea level, and To-
turd, 500 feet above the sea. The district is usually bleBsed with good rains,
but last year there was a long drought.
The first attack on the skies was
made with three explosions, in the
lust and most powerful 40 pounds of
dynamite and 26 pounds of powder
being used. Reports say thnt no immediate effects were observed, but a
slight shower fell at a place a little
distance away. Further explosions
with larger charges followed, the
strongest being produced by 50 pounds
of guncotton and 100 pounds of dynamite. These were followed by widespread anil heavy rains, which continued for two days. A third series
of explosions involving charges of 200
pounds were also successfu', though
not so quirky as in the case of the
second series. The New Zealand
Government meteorologist, Rev. D. C.
Bates. F.R.G.S.. declares that the
condition of the atmosphere at the
beginning of the experiment was such
os to justify a forecast of rain, but
he admits that local residents are
adamant in their view that the ruin
was artificially produced. Great battles have been nlmost invariably followed by rain, no matter how unlikely it may have appeared in view ot
the previous condition (if the .*.tmos-

Death   of   Viscount   Boyne,
The death nf Viscount Boyne took
place recently nt his country seat,
Burwarton Hall. Bridgnorth, Shropshire, where his lordship bad been
ill for about three weeks. Since the
death of Viscountess Boyne in 1003
he had usually resided at Burwarton
Hall. Gustuvus Russell Hamilton-
Russell, eight Viscount Boyne, who
sat in the House of Lords as Baron
Brancepeth, was in his 7Bth year, having been born May 28, 1830. He succeeded his father in 1872. The late
peer was also one of the "princely
Hamiltons," being Baron Hamilton,
of Stackallen. Meath, in the Irish
peerage. His family belonged to the
junior branch of the Hamiltons. of
whom the Duke of Abercorn is the
head. Their common ancestor was
Lord Claud Hamilton, first Lord Paisley, a jealous partisan of Mury Queen
of' Scots. His estates were forfeited,
but restored by James VI. (James I.
of Kngland), Sir Frederick Hamilton,
youngest son of Lord Claud, became
one of the paladins of Gustavus Adol-
plms of Sweden, and the fact has
been commemorated ever since by six
of the eight Viscounts Boyne having
for their "first Christian name that of
Sir Frederick, after distinguishing
himself in the service of the Swedish
king, became Qentleman-in-Ordinary
to King James I. and King Charles I.
He obtained large grants of land in
Ireland, and married the daughter
of Capt. Sir John Vaughan. governor
of Londonderry. Here his third son,
Gustavus, gained renown by defending
Coleraine and Derry in the Protestant interest. He headed n regiment
in the battle of the Boyne, and had
his horse shot under him. At Athlone
he waded across the Shannon at the
head of the Grenadiers, and stormed
the place. For this feat he was appointed governor by William III.,
who also rewarded him with a grnnt
of forfeited Catholic, or Jacobite, estates. Queen Anne r,inde him Duron

Viscount Boyne. Viscount Boyne is
succeeded by' his eldest surviving son,

captain of the 3rd Battalion Northumberland   Fusiliers. *
A Famous  Detective.
Superintendent Alfred Lench, of the
Convict Supervision Department, Scotland Yard, is retiring owing to ill-
health after a famous career as a
detective. The retirement will involve a general move up in the ranks
of the criminal investigation officers,
and eight officers will rise in rank.
Superintendent Leach, ns head of the
Convict Supervision Ollice, had to
deal with convicts liberated on license
and during tlieir tenure of police
supervision, and the police officials
state that there has been no officer
in the i iinals of the force who has
had such a personal knowledge of
notorious criminals as has the retiring oflicer. One of the most important cases, from a public point ot
view, with which Mr. Leach had to
deal was the Southend murdei, and
he personally arrested James Cii.nham
Read at his house at Mitcham. The
nireuiiisliiiices of this atrocious Kssex
murder, for which Read was executed al Chelmsford, are fresh in the
p'.iblic recollection In order to trace
the murderer, the Southend police
Bought the services of u Scotland Yard
official, and Mr. Leach was granted
permission to give the assistance' required. Part of the evidence against
Read was the original telegram sent
by him to his victim, making the
appointment prior to the murder.
This was compared with the band-
ivriting in the b'dgers and books ut
his office in the docks, and was found
to be the same. Once this clue was
-.���btained   the   skilled   detectives   were
r.ot long in bringing the murderer to
justice. Mr. Lenoh also traced Ben
nett, the Yarmouth murderer, who so
brutally did his young wife to death

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Succeed
After Other Remedies Fail.
There are twenty drugs to help your
digestion for a time, but there js
only one medicine that can positively cure your indigestion for good. To
any one with indigestion a half dozen
boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are worth all the purgatives and mixtures in the country. After all these
things have failed Dr. Williams' Pink
Bills have cured the worst cases vf
indigestion by going straight to the
root of the trouble in the blood.
You can take a purgative to tear
through your bowels and make a
clean sweep of your food, whether it
is digested or not. Y'ou can take
stomach bitters to create a false appetite���if you don't care what happens after you swallow your meal.
Y'ou can drug your stomach with
tablets and syrups to digest your
food for you���if you don't care how
soon you ruin your system altogether.
You can do all these things���but
don't call it "curing your indigestion." There is only one way to euro
indigestion, and that is to give your
system so much good, pure, red
blood that your stomach and liver
will have strength enough to do their
uu'iirul work in a healthy nnd vigorous way. That is why Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills cure indigestion- they ac-
tiinllv make new blood. Here is the
proof. Mr. R. MeCorkell, St. Thomas, Ont., savs:���"About a yenr ago
my system became generally wrecked. My stomach was always in a state
of nausea. The-sight of any kind cf
food often turned my stomach and I
would arise from the tabic without
eating. Doctors advised different medicines which I took without benefit.
Finally I became so run down that I
had to quit work. For two months
I tried to build myself up with ihe
aid of doctors, but as time went on
and my condition did not improve I
became much discouraged. Then a
friend told ine he thought Dr. Williams' Pink Pills would help mo, and
I began their use. In three weeks'
time I was so improved thnt I went
back to my work, but I continued
using the pills until I bad taken
twelve boxes, and now my stomach
is strong, and I nm ready for a good
meal three times a day, and life now
really seems worth living."
It is because Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills make new, red blood that they
cure such common ailments ns anaemia, with nil its headaches and
backaches, rheumatism, neuralgia.

A Bridge of Coffins.
When the British forces were marching to Pekin in 1800, after the capture
of the Taku forts, one of the rivers became so swollen with the heavy rains
that It was rendered almost impassable. While in this quandary a bright
Idea suddenly struck one of our officers. Being well aware that the Chinese generally order tbelr coffins years
in advance nnd keep them .on the
premises and also thut they are perfectly air tight, he consulted with his
brother officers, with the result that
orders were given to search all the
houses of the village and collect every
coffin. With the aid of a few empty
casks the soldiers constructed a pontoon bridge of coffins sufficiently
strong to bear the artillery, and the
river was thus passed in safety.���London Standard.

front page Is a border Inclosing an Impressed stamp for the postage rate and
a space for the address. On the second page are printed In native characters ouly minute directions for use. On
the third page ure ruled a Dumber of
vertical lines, between which the send

respect to the memory of the great
iounder of Canada, Samuel de Cham-
"The soldiers and battleships of
three great nations which were once
,it war, will come to show how much
greater and more powerful is peace,
and side by side in this city, where
once all three were at enmity, will
mareli the representatives of America.
of England and of France.
"It is a striking fact and one on
wliich you are undoubtedly to be congratulated that you should have
,'hosen to commemorate the three
hundredth year of your foundation
by a form of celebration which is new
and yet old; a form which sets out
with all the charms that a beautiful
situation, a great history and a chivalrous and poetic-minded people t un
give���a country's history.
"It will enable the youth of this
country to realize bettor than they
have ever done before the greatness of
your national history. It will show
forth with all the adjuncts of urcheo-
logical accuracy, beautiful color,
stately ceremonial, and the sweet
tones of music, the greut events that
you have to remember.
"On the corner of the Plains of
Abraham with the grounds of Marcli-
mont on the right und the river flowing beyond and below, a grand stand
is nl ready in course of erection, which
will seat many thousands of onlookers; and on the broad stretch in front
of it, between the grand stand and
tlie river, will be reproduced with as
great exactitude as possible, the stirring scones of early days.
"hut briefly, we shall see as the
strains of the overture die away, a
group of wigwams set beneath the
trees and a wild Indian dance in progress on the banks. Jacques Cartier
coines in sight with his crew and
plants .in tlio earth in the midst oi
the assembled Indians the mighty,
cross. wliich bears the golden lilies
and  the arms of  France.
"After a scene which will recall as
vividly as history can help us to do
the actual progress of events, he reads
to the crowded savages, grouped on
the banks of the river, as he did nearly four hundred years ago, the familiar words of the Holy Gospel of St
John. Then down he goes to thc
river to embark on the ship whicli is
to bring him back to France.
"So the French pioneers and the
Indians pass out of view and we are
transported in our imagination to the
court of France. The same greensward is under foot and the same sky
is over head, but the strains of music and groups of gay courtiers show
us that the scene is no longer a little village on cliffs at the river side,,
but that this is tlie court of Francois  Premier at Fontainebleau.
In great state he rides at the head
of his cnlvaeade, and Cartier, who hns
returned from his voyage to the west,*
is brought before him and tells him
of his wanderings and presents some
Indians whom he has brought back
with him from the New World.
Then they ride on and the scene
changes again. Once more we are at,
the Court of France but here it is the
court assembled at the Louvre and a
throne is set up in the centre and
lapestiieH unfolded round, while gorgeous halberdiers keep guard. The
court of Henry IV. has succeeded that
of Francis I.; resplendent in satins
and silks of many colors, the ladies
aiid'gentlemen troop in. A ptiviine is
danced before tho King, who arrives
in state, and to a young man, who
stands ut the foot of the throne, is
given a commission to set out where
Cartier had gone beipre, mid Cham-
plain receives his 'orders from the
King. ,   .
Then back tho next scene brings us
to the little village of Stiidueona, and
Ohamplain with his girl wife is le-
coived with wonder by the savages.
"The years again pass by, and
Chaiuplain and his wife are long
since dead. Stiidncona has become
Quebec and the populace has increased* to over'200. The Governor, Mont-
magiiy, goes down with his guard
nnd receives the gentle and holy
mother Marie nnd the ladies from Old
France who have given up tlieir lives
to bring the name of Christ to the
new country. She teaches the little
children the Bible stories that were
taught to each of us at our mother's
knee  and the scone passes on.
"A fort is being defended by 17
brave young Frenchmen against the
hordes'of Iroquois, and the flying arrows', the awful war-whoops and final
burning of the fort, recall to us some
of the terrors and martyrdoms through
wliich our forerunners had to pass.
"Then the ashes of the little firt
are swept aside and the sound of
chanting falls upon our ears. The
great archbishop, Mgr. do Laval, surrounded with all the stately ceremony
of the church comes down to meet
the representative of the King, who
resplendent among his courtiers and
his nobles, pays reverent homage lo
the church.
