Now Ready For Tiie
Full Court.
Tlie ntfxt stage in the famous cape
of a Sandon mine in which over half a
million dollars have been absorbed in
COS'S, and in which sev<nil millions
dollars worth of ore nre involved, will
be thu adjourned hearing before the
full court on April 8th. Fur some reason
t be venue has been changed from Vancouver to Victoria, and ail parlies have
been notified. The anay of legal talent
will be beaded on the Harris tide by
S. 8. Taylor, of Taylor AO'Shea, Nelson, und E. P, Davis, of Davis, Marshall
& McNeil, of Vancouver, ami on lhe
Bryon N. White side by R. E. Lennie,
of Nelson, and E. V. Bodwell, of Vancouver.
The Court adj mrned in November of
last year af'cr giving Mr. Harris the
necessary order t*i do certain work to
determine the existence of a black
fissure and the continuity of the ore at
a point held barren by the White company. To do Ill's work W, E. Zwicky
was appointed by lhe judges, and Hun is
deposited the necessary funds for its
completion in (he Hank of Montreal nt
New Denver. This work has r.OW been
completed, and its import well understood her.*, but whether the legal gen-
lemcii, judges and experts can all agree
mid finally put an end to the litigation
we do not presume to guess.
The latest rumor, which appears to
have foundation, is that Superintendent
Zwicky and Foreman Clark have been
subpeened by the Sar company to give
evidence for the Crown ns independent
witne-ses, nnd show when, how nnd
why the work was done.
Laid to Rest.

It looks to me as if the tunnels 2, 3,
and 4 exposed merely the roots of.an
ore vein, the upper portions oi which
hnd been eroded during the fcrmation
of the valley of Carpenter creek.
These mines are situated on Silver
Mountain, about 4 miles by good wagon
road from New Denver, and at an elevation if 2,320  feet, above Slocan Lnke.
The group consists of 8 mining claims
242 acres, but only one vein, the Hart
ney, hns been developed, It was discovered in 1897, and worked for silver-
lend oh* about. 5 yenrs. During the lat���

Carpenter creek, Knout \% miles from
New Denver, over an excellent wagon
road to within J^ mile of the principal
tunnels. A good pack trail connects
the tunnels with the wagon rond. The
property has not been worked for several yenrs, and no data could be obtained regarding its output, or extent.
The first point visited was an open
cut iu which the vein bad been exposed
for a length of 50 feet, bearing norlh
25 deg. east, an.1 dipping southerly, or
into the mountain, The vein was 3
feet wide for this distance, and contained from one to lj.j feet of zinc
blende, mixed with flnarti: on the hang
ing wall, and mostly quart*/, material
on the foot. The. vein exhibited ribbon
structure, and the short lens made a
very fair showing for a surface outcrop.
The enclosing rock however, is an extremely bard, light poloured slat.*, not,
I think, very favourable for tho production of or*. About 60 feut below the
open cut a RlOBB-cut was driven in to
intersect this vein, which \a exposed in
Ihe cross cut about 38 ircl-ee wide, consisting of a stringer of quartz on Unhanging and foot Walls; in the central
portion it is hard slate, the whole highly
silicified and extremely hard. A rairo
was put up at the face of the tunnel for
about 20 feet, but no pay ore was anywhere, visible.
Proceeding eastward from this tunnel
and passing into a side gulch, or draw,
another tunnel ia found, which inter-
Beets the vein at 00 feet, from its portal.
This vein   has been   stoped west of the
tunnel for a distance of about 80 feet,
continuing to surface, or rnlher to a
short tunnel (No, 4) about 00 fret above.
No ore could be observed in the face of
the workings, tbo productive vein matter having been thoroughly stoped out.
The montli of this tunnel exposes n
fault, showing considerable movement.
The gulch follows the strike of this
fault. Fist of the lens, which bos been
stoped out on the 60 foot tunnel (No. 3)
above described,, the ore lens pinches
np and the vein is probably cut off by
the fault, but as tho workings at the
fault wore not acces'ible to complete
examination, this fact conld not bo
determined. About 80 feet In-low Ni).
3 tunnel and on the enst side of tlie
gulch or drnw, a tunnel (No. 5) was
started in mnsdvo quartz!tfl and extended for 250 feet Into the mountain to intersect the vein showing on the north
side of tin* gulch and fnult. Thi* tunnel
penetrated extremely hurl rock, nnd a
few Irregular fissures were encountered,
but nothing Indicative ol n mineral vein.
As near ns I could judge, this tunnel
sliou'd have intersected tho vein previously mentioned. About 150 feet
above thi. tunnel a vein has been developed by No. 0 tunnel and drifts, and
quite a little Btoping has heen done.
About 80 toils of .ore was flacked on one
nf the dumps from which a sample (No.
42) was t iken by Mr. Garde, which assayed: silver 26.1 ozs., lead 6.1 p.c,
zinc 31 p.c. The vein in these workings
according to Mr. Garde, appears quite
regular but smnll. Sample No. 41 wns
taken from in No. 7 tunnel. It nfsayed
silver 58.5 ozs, lead 10.7 p c, zinc 26.6
p.c. I believe th* sime condition of
affairs exists here, as that described at
the first tunnel examined; at any rate,
the 250-feet qiinrtzite tunnel I No. 5j
below it should have Intersected this
vein, but it has given negative results.
The two samples taken will give some
idea of the grade of the ore. If this
vein can be traced into the darker and
softer slates of the Slocan series, as it
probably can nlong its Strlko, further up
tho valley, I would consider it n good
prospect, hut'as the vein extends in
depth Into the exlremoly sllicions slates
and qiini'tzite, previously described, It

was too low.
The Iliirtney vein has been developed
by six tunnels, mostly on the vein,
varying from 110 to 570 feel in length
nnd aggregating 1,500 feet, with 510
feet of connecting raises nnd winzes,
The vein averages about 18 inches, tbe
pay streak about 4 inches. The lowest
working has reached a depth of 510 feet
below the outcrop.
The property has produced 180 tons
of high grade silver-lead ore, and there
was 160 Jons of mixed zinc-lead ore,
rich iu silver, ready for shipment at
the time of the examination (Sept. 27,
1905), nnd about 300 tons of similar ore
stored in the slopes. The average
grnde of tlie ore as mined is said to be
40 ozs. silver per Ion, 15 p.c. lead, ami
80 p.c. zinc. The ore haul from the
mine to the iiharf at New Denver, coets
52.50 per ton.
The mine is developed by tunnels.
No. 2, started as a cross-cut, bad not
reached the vein. No. 3 tunnel interacts the vein ut lhe end of a c.'088-eut
105 feet long, from which point the
drift extends on the vein 570 feet. The
enclosing rock is an extremely hard
shite, which becomes for the last 100
feet of the drift qoite silieious, nnd the
vein slightly changes ita strike iu this
extremely hard ground, while the clip
very nearly appri aches the vertical; in
other portions of the vein the dip is
about. 60 degrees. At 100 feet from the
face a small slope shows the vein to be
10 inches wide, with very regular walls
nnd a pay streak of but three inches of
zinc and galena, from which sample No.
43 was taken. This assayed; silver
77.7ozs , lead 39.7 p.c, zinc 17.9 p.c.
This small 1< ns did not appear on the
level below, and it looks na if it might
open out still wider as the stope ia advanced upward. Between this latter
stope and the mouth of the tunnel, another stc| e has been carried np to the
level above.
The face of No. 4 tunnel is similar to
No. 3, the vein being reduced to n
simple 8 inch gcuge of crushed slntc
between very regular and extremely
bard wall-., showing evidetic" ol movement. The vein I.ere ia also practically
vertical for a length of 100 feet, as in
the level below. So far a3 I. can see, a'l
the ore thut would pay to mine has been
sloped out above this level. The property bus been worked for some time
underlease. During put of Iho term
two men produced 120 Ions of lend ore
in six months, equal to 10 tons per man
per inonth.
The vein looks best nt ita outcrop and
at its shallower depth in the tunnels.
All the levels gradually enter harder
rock in which the vein becomes both
tighter and poorer, Tim average thickness of the vein matter would not exceed
2 fee-, and the paystreak, neglecting the
last 100 feet in the two tunnels previously described would not average ovor 4
inches. The ore now being mined is almost nn intimate mlxtureof zinc blende
and galenn, with a little Siderite und
quartz, though fio.ii the shallower workings thu ore is said to have been almost
exclusively galena,
The best pay ore appears to follow
the contour of the mountain, extending
iu tho vein only to a moderate depth
from sui face, or until the silieioua slates
are met with. Unless a change to n
more favourable rock occurs at greater
depths, deep development of the vein
does not look? encouraging nnd attention
is perhaps best given to tracing up and
winking tho vein along the shallow productive zone.

A brewery man, we believe he wns
from Hogtown, got off the beaten track
last week and hutted into the Slocan.
We know nothing about tbe quality of
the brew i;e was drumming, but we do
think it the height of hoggishness for a
Nelson firm to send nn emissary lo
Sandon where we have a brewery, the
proprietors of which aro staying with
the country nnd hoping for bettor
tinna. The quality of Sandon beer is
too well known In this count1}' to be
ousted by nny Nelson (lo|>c, nnd it ifiust
bo most flattering to Messrs. Towgood
and Bruder to learn that the hotel
im-n of the Kaslo-Slocau country are
loyal to the home brewers, und that
n discerning public will refuse all worthless imitntiins. We might remark that
this 'spiel for a homo product is quite
voluntary on onr part, an.I that Messrs.
Towgood and bruder by their fine brew
and stiok-to it-tiveness jus'ly merit the
undivided loyalty i f the district and
any support that this journal can uive
them. Ask for Sandon beer, made by
the New York Brewery, at Sandon, B.C.,
and brewed from the finest, hops aud
under perfect sanitary conditions.
Nelson's Magic Embrocation is just
Ihe liniment for rheumatic, joints.
Tom llawes nnd L, MePhee are making excellent progress on their lease of
No. 5 at the White water* The ore coming in looks very promising.
We were very pleased to note that
our printed remarks i'l our issue of tlie
14lh inst. did not fall upou barren
ground. We allude more especially to
our observations on the lack of enterprise of the business men throughout
tbe district, Wo poinied out that no
more favored section existed in britisli
Columbia, its principal a*sets being
diversified minerals, timb r, ranch und
fruit hinds, und incomparable scenery,
uud that the world was practically
ignorant of the resources of this country. Our object was to rouse the buji-
ne-s men of the Slocan towns and cities
lo concerted action towards combatting
existing circumstances with'a remedy
that was never failing.
When the goods are as i.dv.rt'sed, a
genuine hammer it-in-l.o ict is bound
to be effective. A booster's club will
accomplish much. Let Ihe outs ile
wo. Id know what wo have to offer.
Get together and debate the subject.
Someone must take the initiative. Why
not at once? 'Thousands are rushing to
the we-t Ibis spring, What pi rcentHgo
arc we figuring on ? To bu hones ,
00.00. And all because many ot our
so-called business men have adopted
an incongruous now-I-lay-ine-down-to-
dio altitude. Oh, it's a fact; and It
won't hurt you to be told cither.
The letter over the signature of C P.
Nelson in last week's Review hit the
mark just proper. It is true, as he says,
" that if we want outside help we mu-t
lo some extent help ourselves," and lie
sees " no reason why the residents of
Sandon, Three Forks, New Denver,
Silverton, Slocan, Roseherry nnd Nakusp
could not Lund themselves together to
promote the best interests of the whole
district." Charlie Nelson stands ready
to help all he cnu. Snme lice. Let us
hear from you.
With the advent of Spring the temperature of the Cobalt mining district
is rising. Before long it will be i.t fever
heat. Each issue of the Ulll. inl Gazette
contains the announcement of the incorporation of new companies, eaoh
company being capitalized nt several
millions. It. is really surprising to discover thnt Canada contains so many
millionaires. Young lellows who have
never beeu suspected of having money
enough to take their girl to Ihe theatre,
suddenly blossom forth in the O/lici-.il
Gazette us Cibnlt millionaires. Already the millions sol forth in these
anioiiiits would pay off ttll   the national
debts of Europe. But. unfortunately it
is mostly �� ind and paper. If the entire
Cobalt distr ct were a solid mass of silver It would not pay dividends on all
thu-o imaginary millions.
A petition is now being circulated
whicl) when full will be f .rwarded lo
Wm. Hunter, M.P Pf The petition
calls for a special appropriation from
the provincial treasury for completing
lhe wagon road through lo New Denver
siding, and it is being signed by every
resident in the distiict. At the present
time it ia impossible to get through to
New Denver with slock. The only
means of transportation is tho railway,
as no trail or wagon road exists b.-low
hires Forks, and the p cscnt conditions
are such that busiii'fs men and
rancbeis are most unfav-rnby ban*
d'c.ippod. To foster our local industries it is absolutely essential that n
trunk road be established. Cut off us

(Oontinued From Last Week.)
Anguish the painter became Anguish
the strategist and soldier. He planned
with Lorry and the ministry, advancing some of the most harebrained projects that ever encouraged discussion In
a solemn conclave. The staid, cautious
ministers looked upon him with wonder, but so plausible did he make his
proposals appear that they were
forced to consider them seriously. The
old Count of Marlanx held him In great
disdain and did not hesitate to expose
his contempt. This did not disturb
Anguish In the least, for he was as
optimistic as the sunshine. Hia plan
for the recapture of Gabriel was ridiculously improbable, but It was afterward seen that had it been attempted
much distress and delay might actually
have been avoided.
Yettve and Beverly, with Dagmar
and the baby, made merry while the
men were In council. Their mornings
were spent in the shady park surrounding the castle, their afternoons in
driving, riding and walking. Oftentimes the princess was barred from
these simple pleasures by the exigencies of ber position. She was obliged
to grant audiences, observe certain customs of state, attend to the charities
that came directly under her supervision and confer with tbe nobles on affairs of weight aud importance. Beverly delighted In the throne room and
the underground passages. They signified more to her tban all the rest
She was shown the room in which Lorry had foiled the Viennese who once
tried to abduct Yetive. The dungeon
where Gabriel spent his first days of
confinement, the tower in which Lorry
had been held a prisoner and the monastery In the clouds were ell places of
unusual Interest to her.
Some of the people of the city began
to recognize the fair American girl who
was a guest In the castle, and a certain
amount of homage was paid to her.
When she rode or drove In the streets,
with her attendant soldiers, the people
bowed as deeply and as respectfully
as they did to the princess herself, and
Beverly was just as grand and gracious as If she had been born with a
scepter In her hand.
Tbe soft moonlight nights charmed
her with a sense of rapture never
known before. With the castle brilliantly illuminated, the halls and drawing rooms filled with gay courtiers, the
harpists at their posts, tbe military
band playing in the parade ground, the
balconies and porches offering their
most inviting allurements, it is no wonder that Beverly was entranced. War
had no terrors for her. If she thought
of it at all It was with the fear that It
might disturb the dream Into which she
had fallen. True, there was little or
nothing to distress the most timid In
these first days. The controversy between the principalities was at a standstill, although there was not an hour In
which preparations for the worst were
neglected. To Beverly Calhoun it
meant little when sentiment was laid
aside. To Yetive and her people this
probable war with Dawsbergen meant
Dangloss, going back and forth between Edelweiss and the frontier north
of Ganlook, where the best of tbe police
and secret service watched with the
sleepless eyes of the lynx, brought unsettling news to the ministry. Axphaln
troops were engaged in the annual
maneuvers just across the border tn
their own territory. Usually these
were held In the plains near the capital, and there was a sinister significance In the fact that this year they
were being carried on in the rough
southern extremity of the principality,
within a day's march of the Graustark
line, fully two months earlier than
usual. The doughty baron reported
that foot, horse and artillery were engaged In the drills, and that fully 8,000
men were massed In the south of Axphaln. The fortifications of Ganlook,
Labbot and other towns In northern
Graustark were strengthened with almost the same cnre as those In tbe
south, where conflict with Dawsbergen
might first be expected. General Marlanx and his staff rested neither day
nor night. The army of Graustark
wns ready. Underneath the castle's
gay exterior there smoldered the fire of
battle, the tremor of defiance.
Late one afternoon Beverly Calhoun
and Mrs. Anguish drove up in state to
lhe Tower, wherein sat Dungloss and
his watchdogs. The scowl left his face
as far ns nature would permit, and he
welcomed the Indies warmly.
**l came to ask about my friend, the
goat hunter," said Beverly, her checks
a trifle rosier thnn usual.
"He la far from au amiable person,
your hlgbness," said the officer. When
discussing liuldos he never failed to
address Beverly ns "your highness."
"The fever Is gone, und he Is able to
walk without much pain, but he is as
restless na a witch. Following instruction, I hnve not qucatloued him concerning hia plana, but I fancy be Is
eager to return to the hills."
"What did he say when you gave
him my message?" asked Beverly.
"Which one, your highness?" asked
be, with tantalizing density.
"Why, the suggestion that he should
come to EdelwelsB for better treatment," retorted Beverly severely.
"He said he was extremely grateful
for your kind offices, but he did not
deem It advisable to come to this city.
He requested me to thank you in his
bi'hnlf and to tell you that he will
never forget what you have done for
"And he refuses to come to Edelweiss?" irritably demanded Beverly.
"Yes, your highness. You see, he still
regards himself with disfavor, being a
fugitive. It is hardly fair to blame bim
for respecting the security of the
"I hoped that I might Induce him to
give up his old Life and engage In some-
trnng perrecrr- uutunsr; Wnougn, mind
you, Baron Dangloss, I do not question   his  Integrity  In  the  least    He
should bave a chance to prove himself
worthy, that's all. This morning I petitioned Count Marlanx to give bim a
place In the castle guard."
"My dear Miss Calhoun, the princess
has"��� began the captain.
"Her highness has sanctioned the request," Interrupted she.
"And the count has promised to discover a vacancy," said Dagmar, with a
smile that the baron understood perfectly well.
"This Is the first time on record that
old Marlanx has ever done anything to
oblige a soul save himself. It is wonderful, Miss Calhoun. What spell do
you Americans cast over rock and metal that they become as sand In your
fingers?" said the baron, admiration
and wonder in his eyes.
"You dear old flatterer!" cried Beverly so warmly that he caught his breath.
"I believe that you can conquer even
that stubborn fellow In Ganlook," he
said, fumbling with his glasses. "He
is the most obstinate being I know,
and yet in ten minutes you could bring
him to terms, I am sure. He could not
resist you."
"He still thinks I am the princess?"
"He does and swears by you."
"Then my mind Is made up. I'll go
to Ganlook and bring him back with
me, willy nllly. He Is too good a man
to be lost In the hills. Goodby, Baron
Dangloss! Thank you ever and ever
so much. Oh, yes; will you write an
order delivering hlm over to me? The
hospital people may be���er���disobliging, you know."
"It shall be In your highness' hands
this evening."
The next morning, with Colonel Quinnox and a small escort, Beverly Calhoun set off lu one of the royal coaches
for Ganlook, accompanied by faithful
Aunt Fanny. She carried the order
from Baron Dangloss snd a letter from
Yetive to the Countess ltallowitz insuring hospitality overnight iu the
northern town. Lorry and the royal
household entered merrily Into her
project, and she went away with the
godspeeds of all. The Iron Count himself rode beside her conch to the city
gates, nn unheard of condeacenalon.
"Now, you'll be sure to find a nice
place for him In the castle guard, won't
you, Count Marlanx?" she said nt the
parting, her hopes ns fresh as the daisy
In the dew, her confidence supreme.
The count promised faithfully, even
engerly. Colonel Quinnox, trained as
he was In the diplomacy of silence,
could scarcely conceal his astonishment nt the conquest of the hard old

He dropped to hla knee,
sourcefulness to secure hia promise
to start with her for Edelweiss on the
following morning. The coach delivered her ut the hospital door in grand
style. Wheu the visitor was ushered
into the snug little anteroom of the
governor's ottice her heart was throbbing and her composure was undergoing a most unusual strain. It annoyed her to discover that the approaching contact with a humble gout
hunter wus giving her such uumlstuk-
nble symptoms of perturbation.
From au upstairs window in the hospital tbe convalescent but unhappy putlent witnessed her approach and arrival. His sore, lonely heart gave a
bound of joy, for the days had seemed
loug since her departure.
He hud hud time to think during
these days too. Turning over in hia
mind ull of the detuils iu connection
with their meeting und their subsequent Intercourse, It begun to duwu

she assumed to be. Doubts assuiled

when he laughed sardonically at himself for being taken lu by this strange

through it ull his heart aud mind were
being drawn more nud more fervently

Our   Naval   Cadet-   Learn   to   Spile*
Rope*, Furl Sails, Etc.
It Is probably not generally known
how the United States government
trains the youth upon whose shoulders
will rest the responsibility of maintaining the high standard of the navy.
His apprenticeship, according to Leslie's Weekly, Is not unlike that of any
other young man learning a trade, the
fundamental principle being the proper
kind of tools and when and how to Vse
A midshipman's tools, so to speak,
aTe ships, thus rendering a thorough
knowledge of seamanship an essential
part of the training. This begins with
lessons In splicing hemp and wire
rope, after which the young men are
given practice In handling sails on the
Indoor mast in the seamanship building, which ia an exact counterpart of
the liiizzenniast of the training ship
Severn aud is seventy-two feet iu
The midshipmen go aloft, furl, reef
and set soils, etc.���In fact, go through
the entire seamanship drill. A net Is
spread nt the foot of the mast for protection, as a fall on the concrete floor
would be far more serious than ou the
deck of a ship. Accidents, however,
are infrequent.
Drills on the Severn begin early In
the spring and continue throughout the
cruise, which lasts from June until
September. The midshipman thus becomes accustomed to ship life. The
work Is hard and the discipline severe
during these drills. There Is little
tendency to sliirk duty, and the future
adnilrala do everything on shipboard,
on deck and nloft, even to clearing up
the deck and stowing away the ropes.
From a picturesque point of view
seamanship pructlce on the Severn surpasses ull other similar exercises. It
seems that on shipboard the sense of
the reality of the thing Is ever present,
and one accustomed to witnessing
these drills notices that on the deck of
the old Severn the middles are more
active, more In earnest, and the manner In which they climb and swing
around the rigging does credit to an
old sailor.
Each man starts In with a practical
seaman's duties and as he continues
his course Is advanced to the duties of
the petty officers and later to those of
the junior commissioned officers.

Dr.   Williams*   Pink   Hills  Give   New
Strength to Overworked Women.
The life of a domestic is a hard
one. She toils from early morning
till late at night; her work is never
done. Often she is too busy to get
out of doors for a breath of fresh
air. Unless her blood is kept rich
and pure this close confinement wears
on her health. Her strength will
fail; she may lose her appetite, become pale and dyspeptic. In fact she
is in danger of a general breakdown.
Such was the condition oi Miss Marie
Anne Fleury, of Ste. Anne de la Per-
ade, Que., before she used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. She says: "For
a number of years I have been a
servant. Up to a year ago I always
enjoyed the best of health, but suddenly I was seized with puina in my
side, my appetite left me, I became
dyspeptic and lost all strength. I
consulted a doctor who told me I was
suffering from general debility. I waa
forced to stop work and for three
months I followed the doctor's treatment, but without benefit. I was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
and aa I had often read of the cases
they cured, I decided to do so. I
only took eight boxes before I was
cured and today I am stronger than
I ever wns. My digestion is good and
I can now go' about my work without fatigue. I owe a. debt of gratitude to Dr. Willioma' Pink Pills for
what they have done for me und I
strongly advise other weak sickly
girls to give them a trial."
Miss Fleury's case is one of many
thst Dr. Williams' Pink Pills hnve
cured after doctors' help had failed.
The success of these pills lies in the
fnct that they strike right at the
root of the trouble���the blood. Other
medicines simply act on the symptoms of the trouble���und rnuy relieve,
but tbey do not cure. Dr. Williams'

There is more or less mystery and
doubt as to the specific action of many
lrugs, but it is positively and de-
.initely known that iron forms new
.ed corpuscles in the blood, or, in
other words, makes the blood rich
and nourishing.
But iron alone cannot be taken
into a delicate stomach. The great
secret of tlie success of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food is in the way iron is
combined with certain other restoratives so as to make a preparation
that can be used with the greatest
benefit by even tbe most weak and
delicate person.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is also
slightly laxative as well as tonic in
influence, and while building up tlie
system insures the regular und healthful action of the digestive, filtering
nnd excretory systems.
If you would enrich the blood,

pretty nearly every day it was called

some injury or other. It is wonderful how quickly Zam-Buk takes the
soreness out oi cuts, burns, bruises
and injuries; und on our survey it
earned golden opinions from all who
had occasion to try it. I have found
it very line for skin disease, and 1
can strongly recommend it as a household  balm."

Story  of   Bogus  Jewels.
A curious incident happened in
Rome, Italy, some time ago, when a
travelling trunk was lost. The owner, a music hall singer, declared that
it contained valuable effects and jewelry, and she was offered $25,000 in
final settlement of all claims. But
the  music hall star  refused.
It so happened that, pending negotiations, the trunk was discovered,
and the order was at once given by
the officials for a list of its contents.
An expert jeweller was also requisitioned, and his response was to t>e
effect that the asserted precious diamonds were all false. The fact reached the ears of the owner, who disappeared, and has not been heard of

utterance to several sarcastic remarks
tending to throw doubt upon the
ability  of so young a man.
One of the questions was: "You
are entirely familiar with the symptoms of concussion of the brain ?"
"'I  am."
"Then," continued the cross-examiner, "suppose my learned friend, Mr.
Taylor, and myself were to bang our
heads together, should we get concussion of the brain ?"
"Your learned friend, Mr. Taylor,
might," suggested the young physician.���Rochester Herald.

in Effort to Do A nay With the Lone
Midday Interval.
A discussion Is going on In commercial circles In Germany regarding tbe
respective merits of the English and
German systems of arranging the
hours of work In banks, company officer and big business houses.
It has always been customary In
Germany for clerks and accountants
and all workers of this class to begin
work considerably earlier than Is the
case In England and to terminate work
In the evening much later than Is usual
In London. Work begins In German
offices, as a rule, nt 8 o'clock In the
morning and Is frequently not concluded before 8 o'clock In the evening.
Partial compensation for the early beginning and late termination Is obtained by taking a two hours' pause at
midday, but even with this break the
total hours worked In German offices
considerably exceed those In English
offices, especially as a half holiday Saturday Is still an exceptional arrangement In Germany.
An agitation Is now going on for the
abolition of the long midday Interral
and of the Introduction of the hours of
work usual In English offices. Many
German business men, however, resist
the Innovation and persist In maintaining the old fashioned system.
Many German stockbrokers, com
pany directors, directors of banks and
captains of Industry adopt a curious
arrangement by which they dine at S
o'clock In the afternoon and afterward
return to their offices from 6 till 8
o'clock In the evening.
Those Germans -Who have practical
experience of office work tn England
are unanimous In declaring that English clerks do Just as much in six or
seven hours as German clerks In nine
or ten hours and advance this as *
strong argument in favor of the gen
eral adoption of tbe English hours of
work In offices.
A few of the big banks In Berlin

Electricity In the Home.
In a $3,000 or $4,000 bouse It Is a
very common matter to wire for electric lights, but by giving the subject a
little further attention with yonr electrical contractor and the architect It
la possible to arrange outlets for lighting socket heating devices at very little extra expense. Such receptacles
would be taken off from the lighting
wires In a very simple manner. The
cost of operating later at lighting rates
would not be large, for the reason
that the electrical devices which will
be used on such a circuit consume
only a small amount of electricity and
are generally used for only short Intervals. They would comprise, for example, the chafing dish, the coffee percolator, heating pad, cigar lighter,
shaving mug, curling Iron, baby milk
warmer, small frying pan und many
others.���Cassler'B Magazine.
A Bale or Cotton.
In order to see how far a certain bale
of cotton was shipped before being
manufactured into goods W. H. Tarks,
Jr., of Ennis, Tex., placed a note lu a
bale which was shipped In the autumn
of 1005 asking the person wbo finally
received and opened It to write to him
and tell him where the cotton was used
and what price was paid. The bale
traveled many thousands of miles, as
Is shown by this letter, which Mr.
Parks received recently from Reval,
Russia, which is situated on tbe Baltic
Reval,  Russia, Aug. 23 (Sept. 5),
The bale of cotton In which your letter
and blank memorandum were found was

A Tree Freak.
A rare proof of the vitality of certain trees Is offered by a poplar in the
village of Gunten, on the Lake of
Thun. When, about twenty years ago,
a fountain was placed before the post-
office building of that place the builders used for a shank and girder of tbe
water conduit a young poplar trunk
which they drove Into the ground and
In which the pipe was Inserted. After
a short time the trunk began to throw
out shoots, and today it la a tall tree,
with heavy foliage. The water pipe Is
now completely overgrown, and It Is
a strange sight to see a Jet of water
stream forth from the interior of the
uninjured tree.
The Sayings of Children.
In the new Sunday at Home appears un article on "The Sayings of
Children," by Ranee Leyton. In
many stories about children much is
lost because of the impossibilty of
"printing the child." The following
are but specimens of many sayings
that are here collected: One small
urchin fancied he had at last got to
the other side of omnipotence. With
one boot off and the other on he wail-
td, "Nobody���none-body���can fasten
my boot." "God can," said his sister,
reprovingly. "He can't," persisted the
other, doggedly, " 'cause it's got no
buttons I"
Here is another illustration of the
"remorseless logic of childhood: "Why
was the world drowned?" Tiny mite,
triumphantly: "'Cause, teacher, it
couldn't float!" "How do you suppose
they filled up their time in the ark?"
LHtle fellow, tentatively: "Fishin',"
Other little fellow, scornfully, "Couldn't; there were only two worms."
A new theologian speaks in this
judgment: "It isn't the bones that
roes to heaven," explained one little
Bister to another, "it's something in
the tummy!" While another solves
the question of personal responsibility very easily: A clergyman's daughter, before being put in bed, uttered
this somewhat remarkable prayer:

A technical magazine lias an interesting article by H. D. Jones on Am-'
erica's leadership of the world in the!
manufacture of false teeth. We send
them to India, China, Japan, Patagonia and Polynesia. Indeed, as tha
writer grimly suggests, "it is not beyond the limit of possibility that cannibal feasts are conducted with thi

Illustrious Fame  Roll  of the  Mother
Country As Exemplified In
Many Men of Note.
Si.- Robert Peel���"Bob, you dog, if
you're not Prime Minister I'll disinherit you." These words were once
jocularly uttered by the father of this
eminent English statesman, who was
anxious from the first that his heir
should make a figure in polities. How
Sir Robert, step by step, won his way
to the Premiership twenty-three yearn
later cannot be told here. Suffice it
to say that England has never possessed a statesman with greater talents for legislative business and finance. Personally Sir Robert was not
a popular or Boeiab's man, but he
loved his work and the Kiuse of Commons, and the country is indebted to
him for many reforms and much prosperity.
Sir Titus  Salt.
The world admires a successful
man, and more so when that man
uses his gifts and prosperity to confer benefits upon his fellow-creatureB.
Sir Titus Salt built up the greatest
manufactory of aipaca fabrics in Europe, and he also built around that
manufactory a villnge of 900 employes. A man of thoroughly ultruistio
principles, Sir Titus treated his hands
with great liberality, while he gave
princely gifts to Bradford, which town
he represented in Parliament and served as mayor.
William Cobbett.
The sturdiness and indomitable
energy of Cobbett must arouse the admiration of every Englishman. From
the son of a peasant he rose to be
one of the most daring and powerful
political writers of the early half of
the nineteenth century. It is true that
Cobbett had a capacity for getting
himself into "hot water," but this
did not deter him from fighting for
any cause he considered to be right.
Cobbett loved the poor rs much as
he loved the country and the fields,
ind he undoubtedly did much by his
'renchant writings���which called the
tttention of reformers to work which
required to be done���towards ameliorating the conditions of those who
lived in the poverty corners of England.
Or. Talt, Archbishop of Canterbury.
Undoubtedly tlie greatest achievement of this prelate was performed
when he succeeded Dr. Bloomfield as
Bishop of London. So vigorously did
Dr. Tait labor in the metropolis that
in a few years lie raised no less than
��350,000 for the building of churches,
schools, and parsonages in the poorer
districts of London. His sermons
and writings in their day were read
with avidity, for people recognized
that they emanated from a mastermind. Dr. Tait had many difficulties
to overcome, but lie grappled with
them In a manner which proved him
to be thoroughly equal to the duties
of the high offices conferred upon
Lord  Melbourne.
Although this noted statesman never earned fame as a great orator and
brilliant politician, he accomplished
some solid and valuable work for the
country, more especially when he became Prime Minister. He signalized
his accession to his office, in 1835, by
carrying a great measure of municipal reform, and the following year
came the lowering of the stamp duty
on newspapers and the Tithe Commutation Act, benefiting landowners
and clergy alike. One of the most notable ana estimable features of Lord
Melbourne's career, by the by, was
the delicate tnct and friendly and conscientious care with which he initiated Queen Victoria into the duties of
Sovereign on her accession to the
Lord Dufferln.
This great Ambassador had one of
the most distinguished careers among
the most distinguished men of his
time. Among the letters which he was
entitled to write after his name were
P.O., K.P., G.C.B., G.C.S.I.. G.C.M.
G., G.O.I.E��� D.O.L., LL.D., F.R.S.
The LL.D., was conferred on him by
Oxford, Edinburgh and Harvard,
while he was also Doctor of Oriental
Learning of the Punjab University.
His Lordship acted as Governor-General of Canada as well as of India and
was Ambassador to Russia, Italy and
France, while early in his career he
filled various Under Secretaryships of
State. Once, in a moment of face-
tiousness, he described himself as
"Maid-of-all-work to British Governments."
William Charles Macready.
The efforts of this great actor were
always directed towards elevating and
purifying the drama. He undoubtedly did much good service for the English stage, and brought about many
reforms. But Macready did more
than this. He proved himself a magnificent and powerful actor and splendid manager. He produced Shakespearean plays in a most worthy fashion, and from Macready's triumphs
and achievements the present school
of actors have been able to learn
much of histrionio value.
Sir George White.
It is fifty-three years since Sir
George White entered the army, and
he served soon after In the Indian
Mutiny with the 27th Royal Innis-
killing Fusiliers, winning a medal and
clasp, while during the engagement at
Charasiah he won the Victoria Cross.
He took part in the great march from
Kabul to Kandahar, and was nt one
time military secretary to the Viceroy
of India.. For his distinguished ser-j
vices in the field he was promoted to
be major-general, and that by the
Government of India, in which country he served as Commander-in-Chief
of the ForceB from 1893 to 1898.
Charles Lever.
Apart from his powers as a writer.
Lever was one of the most brilliant
conversationalists who ever lived, and
the life and soul of any company. He
was at home everywhere, knowing
everybody, and a welcome guest in all
societies and in all countries. And
no less welcome were his books. Who
has not laughed over his amusing
stories of Irish life, and the adventures of "Charles O'Malley," "Arthur
O'Leary," "Tom Burke of Ours," and
"Jack Hinton"? Lever has been accused of giving a false idea of Irish
character and life. Be that as it may,
the world of literature would have
been much poorer without his rollicking and always entertaining storiea.
"I got a shock from a 'lectric battery terday," said the first hobo.

As an express train was going
through a station one of the passengers leaned too far out of the window, overbalanced, and fell out. He
fortunately landed on a sand heap,
so that he did himself no great injury, but, with torn clothes and not
a few bruises, said to a porter who
was standing by:
"What shall  I do?"
"You're all right, mister," said the
porter. "You're ticket allows you to

Even such tricks as hiding jewels

diamonds cannot longer be depended upon to cheat the customs officials.
In the French government tests of
the "x"-ray detective of Alphonse le
Roux, persons representing smuggling
passengers have been examined without removal of clothing or any indignity except being detained a few
moments before the apparatus, and
so rapid is the process that 167 persons received attention in forty-five
minutes. On these individuals were
articles of many kinds, variously concealed. Watches were revealed in the
hem of a woman's skirt, a tiny
lockot under a young man's tongue,
watch chains and a bracelet in tlie
coils of a woman's hair, card-cases
in a man's shoes, and even buttons
���proving the presence of gloves���under the clothing over a man's chest.
Tried on postal packages, without
breaking seals or untying strings, all
kinds of articles were shown in the
most innocent and unlikely places-

A Natural
Inward" cleansing is as necessary as outward bathing. To keep the
bowels free and regular is of even greater importance than to keep
the skin-pores from becoming clogged. The neglect of either invites disease. Everyone needs a natural laxative occasionally, to
free the bowels of accumulated impurities    For this purpose take
the greatest boon ever offered to those who suffer from the ills
that follow constipation. For over fifty years Beecham's Pills have
been famous as a Stomach corrective, a Liver regulator and Bowel
laxative. -They never gripe nor cause pain. Powerful purgatives
are dangerous. Avoid them. Use Beecham's Pills. They give relief without doing violence to any organ. Their action is in harmony with physical laws. Take them regularly and the necessity
for their use becomes less frequent. They are a natural laxative
and a positive cure for Constipation, Biliousness, Indigestion, Sick
Headache and Dyspepsia.
