"Campers und louns's" is an answer
that comes readily to the lips of many
lumbermen and timber-,imit owners
when asked as lo how foict lircs oiig-
imite. Unfortunately tbe answer is
often only too true.
The camper would certainly be decidedly averse toburiiingover tlie woodland which affords him recreation, rest
am! pleasure. But lie fails to realise
what a small cause may give ri*e to a
set ions lire in the forest, and hence does
not ixercise lbe necessary caution with
regard to his carnp fires, and even hi.
matches and cigar-ends, for these latter
small as they are, may be just as much
to blame for starting a seiious conflagration as a lire of far larger proportions.
Constant caie, eternal vigilance must be
exercised in lhe forest by everyone who
lias cause lo use fires (ami wbo has not)?
1-st the die should escape from him and
jitt into the forest soil and even into
the lice toi*s.
Campers themselves may greatly assist in lliis matter hy observing a few
general cautions. Camp tires should not
be ,my 1 nil*r than necessary, and no
ouo shou il leave a lire, even for a short
time, without making sure that ii is
thoroughly put out, A lighted match,
or cigai-end or oilier burning object
Bhould never be thrown down in the
woods; it sh.iuld be thoroughly exlin-
guieed before being thrown away. Fires
should not be built among leaves, rotten
wood, or in places where they are likely
to spread on account ot the Inflammable
natuie of the BUiroundiugs; build the
fire on n rock, if possible, or, if there
is no rock convenient, at least clear away
the leaves, humus, etc, down to the
mineral soil, if at all possible. Nor
should fires bo built against large or
hollow logs, as in such places it is hard
to be suro when they are entirely extinguished. It the weather is windy, it
is well lo confine lhe fire in a hole, dug
right down into tlie mineral soil.

Well-Known Pioneer Dead.
Dominion Day at Silverton.
Greatly to the disappointment of the
people of New Denver and Slocan, Silverton had decided not to celebrate
Dominion day, and only at the eleventh
hour were eflorts made to arrange a
program of sports and launch races.
Owing to this reason, there was only a
comparatively small number journeyed
from New Dedver on Wednesday.
The first of the launch race handicaps
was for the "Hunter" cup over a course
of 5,34 miles. Seven competitors took
part in this event, and H. Stege's "Lucerne," after holding a. good lead
throughout, ran ont an easy winner from
H. G. Fisher's "Nelson," which was
placed  second.
The second race from a standing
start, for which there were six competitors, also went to H. Stege's "Lucerne," which was awarded first place
on the handicap.
In the afternoon there was a seiies
of children's races and bun-eating contests in which the efforts of the youngsters to devour the buns as tbey hung
suspended from cords caused much
Tlie dance in thc evening was only a
partial success owing to the majority of
the visitors having departed by the
afternoon's boat.
At a Fourth of July banquet, a gentle
man proposed this toast: "Here's to
our country, bounded on the north by
the Atlantic, on the sonth by the Gulf,
and on the west by the Pacific." This
was thought to be too conservative by
the next speaker and be put it this way:
"Here's to our country, bounded on the
north by the north pole, on the south
by the south pole, on the east by the
rising sun, and on thh west by the setting sun." As the champagne went
down, the patriotism went up, nnd it
finally culminated in this sentiment,
which was proposed by a speaker:
"Here's to our country, bounded on
the north by the aurora borealis, on the
south by the procession of the equinoxes, on the east by primordial chaos,

Samuel L. Wharton, pioneer mine operator in the Spokane conn! ry, aud land
owner in Georgia and Texas is dead at
his summer home on the Wharton
ranch near Modical Lake, 18 miles
west of Spokane. The immediate cause
of his dentil was c nicer or the stomach,
his end being hastened by an injury
sustained last summer, when be was
thrown fr un bis carriage iu a runaway.
C donel Wharton was successful in
his mining operation in this country,
one cf tbe most profitable being in the
Reco property in the Slocan distiict.
Ho was vice president of the Re.*o
Mining Company, in which be was also
a large stockholder. He went to Sandon, wlie****. tbe nrne is located, while
a stampede to that district was in progress, and for a while engaged in the
hotel business.
He was also heavily interested in a
eold mining property in Georgia, having been an investor in the mines
I hero since 1898. Tlie ore in the Georgia
mine' has good values, but it is low
grade, ami tbo mine has never been a
profitable one. It is being operated
under a lease and bond, running 50
stamps. Colonel Wharton spent much
of liis time overseeing work on the
He was born in Charleston, S.C.,
Dec. 11, 1847. and in July, 1875, married Marian C. Ci unton at Dallas, Tex.
He came to Spokane in February, 1800,
afler passing yenrs in Texas and Georgia
and lived here most of the time since.
He was always a shrewd business man,
Inking delight in trading any kind of
p'.oporly that canio into his hand". A
story is told, that while in San Antonio,
Tex., he bought at a sheriff's sale, the
outfit of a defunct circus, not because
he knew anything about the business,
but because it appealed to him as a
commercial proposition. A few days
af:er hia purchase he soil the menagerie ol bis circus to a zoological garden
in Cincinatti, for a sum greater tban
bis original purchase price of tbe entire
show. He disposed of the wagons, tents
and other paraphernalia to scattered
buyers, making a handsome profit on
the d**al.
Colonel Wharton leaves bis widow,
who is wealthy in her own right, owning much valuable property at Spiiit
Laks, Ida. There are no children.
Three sisters, Mrs. Harper, Mrs. Clayton and MrsS'nnms live at Atlanta, Ga ,
and another, Mrs. M. Currie, is at Oakland, Cal. A brother, George C. Wharton, lives at Biooklyn, N.Y.
The strawberry season is now in full
swing, and the ranchers have th ir
hands full in supplying the demands of
tbe district.
The Nelson Daily News s:iys���"The
zinc ore tariff question, which is Anally
to be decided by the supreme courts of
the United Stales, as reported some
time ago, has, it is said, encouraged certain miners in the Joplin and Wisconsin
fields lo raise a fund for the purpose of
fighting importers ol Mexican and other
ores. Tlie domestic producers seem determined to keep zinc ores on the dutiable list, lo pay 20 per cent, ml valorem ;
while the Importers contend that they
should be entered free. The imports ol
zinc ores Into tbe United Slates tor the
first four ni'inihs Ibis year amounted
to 10,000 tons, o! whicli 5,790 tons wero

The Bosun hall, on Friday evening
was well-filled when tbe Echool children of New Deuuer gave an entertainment, on the occasion ot tlie closing of
lbe Bchoola for the summer vacation.
The program consisted ot choruses,
solos, recitations, dialogues an musical
drill. All tlie items were capably rendered, the musical drill and the marching being especially good and Well-
timed. The dialogue, "Contradictions,"
by the Misses Cropp and McDougald,
and the sketch, "The Iiisb Schoolmaster." by Walter Oetby and cla's wero
clevoily done and caused great amusement.
The chairman (Mr. Hani..) congratulated the scholars on a most successful year the schools havo ever bad.
There 1ms been a record attendance
and a very high standard of efficiency.
T. T. Eankine, the bead master, strongly advocated llie^eslahlisliment of efficient central high schools with Government aid lo the pupils rather than the
creation of a number of small and
oftentimes inefficient local schools.
After a vote of thanks lo the chairman bad been passed, three cheers and
a "tiger" were given for Mr. and Mrs.
Rankine and Miss McVieiir, to whom
tlie success of the schools and of the
entertainment is due.
Refreshments were afterwards served
by tlie senior scholars and dancing was
indulged in until an early hour.

Will Address Meeting at
Bosun Stall on Thursday
Next, July 9th
For the first time in their histories,
New Denver and Silverton are to be
honored with a visit of tha premier of
Britisli Columbia, the Hon. R. MeBride.
He will be accompanied by the Attorney General (\X. J, Bowser), the Provincial Becretaiv, (II. E. Young), and
probably lhe Chief Commissioner (F.
J. Fulton).
Great preparations aro being made
for (heir reception. A special train
has been chartered to convey tho premier and party from Nakusp on Thursday morning. On arrival at Rosebery,
tbey will be met by Mr, Win. Hunter,
M.P.P., and conveyed in launches
down lhe lake to Silverton. On arrival
there they will te conducted through
tlie town, nnd tako in lbe scenic beauties
of tlie surionnding district, after which
luncheon will be served.
An effort will be made to induce one
or two of tlie party to visit Slocan, but
so Car nothing definite has been arranged.
In tlie evening at 8 p.m. the premier
will address a meeting in the Bosun
Hall, Now Denver, and as wc are informed that, matters of great importance are to be brought forward, it is
to be hoped that the people of tbe Slocan and surrounding districts will
assemble in large numbers and show
their loyalty to tbe provincial government by extending a hearty welcome,
and eo make the vi-it a memorable one.
The ordinary train will convey tbe
distinguished visitors baak to Nakusp
on Friday morning.
Sandon to Protest.
Great indignation is being expressed
in Sandon and by owners and leasers of
surrounding mines, over the intended
action of the K. & S. Railway company
to cease running trains into Sandon,
but to make McGuigan their terminal
instead of Snndon as formerly. Mc
Guigan being situated 11 miles from
Sandon will mean that ore intended for
shipment via Kaslo will require to be
packed 11 miles further than formerly,
while passengers for Kaslo will be
compelled to travel via way of Nelson,
unless they "hit the ties" at McGuigan
which is the winter months is extremely
difficult without the aid of skis.
An indignation meeting is to be held
in the city hall on Tuesday evening,
presided over by mayor Cameron, and
it is thought probable that the intervention of thc government will be
sought, and the terms of their charter
investigated. As large grants of land
were given involving the railway company in certain responsibilities, their
action in tegard to thc new terminal
may demonstrated illegal and steps
taken accordingly.
Doubtless the company feels justified
in their action, as during the last few-
months a general tone of slackness has
been existent on this particular ruil-
A Public Nuisance.
The cows and other animals which are
allowed to roam about at largo are becoming an intolerable nuisance. Much
damage has been caused recently by
these brutes. This week several fouces
have been broken ; ill one instance, tbe
whole structure for Iwo or three yardB
being demolished, and through the gaps
lima made, access to the enclosure has
been easy, resulting in valuablo fruit
buBhcs and vegetation being trampled
down, and a grape vine, on which the
owner placed great value, was destroyed.
Not only this, but considerable damage
baa also been done to tho sidewalks,
some of which are in such an unsafe
condition as to render them a constant
source of danger to the public.
The owners ol these animals will
have to bo made aware of tlieir responsibilities, as serious consequences
are likely to follow. .      . - ... THE   SLOCAN   MINING   REVIEW,   NEW   DENVER,   B. C.
Author   of   "The   Return   o!   Sherlock
Copyrluht. 1893, by Harper <fc Brothers
THE rooms which were Inhabited
by the lady wbo had already
taken so marked a position at
the court of  France  were as
bumble as were ber fortunes at the
time wbeu they were allotted to ber,
but with tbat rare tact and self restraint  which  were  the leading  features in ber remarkable character sbe
had made no change iu her living with
the   Increase  of   ber   prosperity   aud
forbore from provoking envy and jealousy by any display of wealth or of
power.    In a side wing of the palace,
far from the central salons and ouly
to be reached by  long corridors nnd
stairs,   were the two  or  three small
chambers upon which the eyes, flrst of
the court, then of France and finally
of  the   world,  were  destined  to  bo
turned.    In such rooms bad the destitute widow of the poet Scarron been
housed when she bud lirst been brought
to court by Mine, do Montespan as tbe
governess of the  royal  children,  nud
ln  sucn  rooms  sbe  still  dwelt  now
that  sbe  had  added   to  her   maiden
Franeolse d'Aublfmy the title of Marquise de Maintenon, with the pension
nnd estate which the king's favor bad
awarded her.
xne  young  guardsman   had  scarce
ever exchanged a word with this powerful lady, for it was her taste to isolate herself and to  appear  witb  the
court only nt tlie hours of devotion.   It
was therefore with sonic feelings both
of nervousness and of curiosity tbat he
followed bis guide down the gorgeous
corridors, where art and wealth had
been strewn  with  so   lavish  a  hand.
The lady paused in front of the chamber door and turned to ber companion.
"Madame wishes to speak to you of
What occurred this morning," said she.
"I should advise you to say nothing to
madame about your creed, for it is tbe
only thing upon whicli her heart can
be bard."   She raised her finger to emphasize tbe warning, and, tapping nt
the door, sbe pushed It open.   "I havo
brought Captain do Catinat, madame,"
said she.
"Then let the captain step In." The
voice was firm and yet sweetly musical.
Obeying the command, De Catlnat
found himself in a room which was
no larger and but little better furnished than that which was allotted to his
own use. Vet, though simple, everything in the chamber was scrupulously
neat and clean, betraying tbe dainty
taste of a refined woman. Tbe stamped leather furniture, tbe La Savon-
���niere carpet, tbe pictures of sacred subjects, exquisite from an artist's point
of view, the plain but tasteful curtains,
all left au impression half religious
and half feminine, but wholly soothing.
Indeed, the soft light, tbe high white
statue of tbo Virgin in a canopied niche,
with a perfumed red lamp burning before It, and tbe wooden prie-dieu with
tbe red edged prayer book upon the top
'of It made thc apartment look more
like a private chapel than a fair lady's
On each side of the empty fireplace
���was a littlo green covered armchair,
the one for madame and tbe other re*
iBerved for the use of the king. A small
'three legged stool between tbem was
heaped with her workbasket and her
tapestry. Ou the chair which was far-
���thest from the door, with her back
turned to tbe light, madame was sitting as tbe young officer entered. De
Catinat, without having time to notice
details, was simply conscious that he
was in the presence of a very handsome woman and that hot* large, pensive eyes were fixed critically upou
bim and seemed to be reading his
thoughts as tbey bad never been read
"I think thnt I have already seen
you, sir.   Have I not?"
"Yes, madame. I have once or twice
had tho honor of attending upon you,
though it may uot bave been my good
fortune to uddress you."
"My life is so quiet and retired that
I fear that much of what is best and
worthiest at tbe court is unknown to
me.    You have served, monsieur?"
"Yes, madame. In tbe Lowlands,
on tbe Rhine and In Canada."
"In Canada! Ah! What nobler ambition could woman havo than to be
a member of thut sweet sisterhood
which was founded by the holy Marie
de .'Incarnation and the sainted
Jeanne le Ber at Montreal? And
doubtless you have hnd the privilege
also of seeing the holy Bishop Laval?"
"Yes, madams, I have seeu Bishop
"And I trust that the Sulpielnns still
bold their own against the Jesuits?"
"I  have  heard,  madame,  that the
Jesuits are the stronger at Quebec and
the others at Montreal."
"And who is your own director, monsieur?"
De Catinat felt tbat tbe worst bad
come upon him. "1 have none, madame."
"Ab, it Is too common to dispense
with a director, and yet I know not
bow I could guide my steps lu the difficult path which 1 tread if it were
not for mine. Who is your confessor,
"I have none. I am of tbe Reformed
The lady gave a gesture of horror,
and a sudden hardening sbow*ed Itself
In mouth and eye. "Wbat, lu tbe
court itself," she cried, "and in tbe
neighborhood of the king's own person!"
"You will find, madame," said De
Catinat sternly, "that members of my
faith have not only stood around tbe
throne of France, but have even seated themselves upon it."
"God lias for Ins own all wise purposes permitted It, and none sbould
know it better thnn I, whose grandsiro,
Theodore- d'Aublgny, did so much to
place a crown upon the bead of the
great Henry. But Henry's eyes were
opened ero bis end came, and I pray���
oh, from my heart I pray���that yours
may be also."
She rose and, throwing herself down
Upon the prie-dleu, sunk her face In her
hands for some few minutes.    A tnn
nt tne floor urongm me moy Daca to
this world again, and ber devoted attendant answered ber summons to enter.
"The king Is ln the Hall of Victories,
madame," said sbe. "He will be here
lu five minutes."
"Very well. Stand outside and let
me know when he comes. Now, sir,"
she continued when they were alone
once more, "you gave a note of mine to
the king this morning?"
"I did, madame."
"And,   as   I   understand,   Mme.   de
Montespan. was refused admittance to
tbe grand lever?"
"She was, madame."
"But. she waited for the king In the
passage and wrung from him a promise that he would see her today?"
"Yes, madame."
"I would not have you tell me that
which It may seem to you u breach of
your duty to tell. But I am fighting
now against a terrible foe and for a
great stake. Tell me, then, at what
hour was tbe king to meet the marquise iu ber room?"
"At 4. madame."
"I thank you. You have done me a
service, and I shall not forget it. Now
you must go, captain. 1'ass through
the other room and so Into the outer
passage. And take this, It Is Bos-
suet's statement of the Catholic faith.
It has softened tbe hearts of others
and may yours.   Now, adieu!"
De Cutinnt passed out through another door, nnd as ho did so be glanced
back. The lady bad her back to him,
and her hand was raised to tbe mantelpiece. At the instant that be looked
sbe moved ber neck, and he could see
what she was doing. She was pushing
back the loug hand of the clock.
Captain de Catinat bad hardly vanished through tbe oue door before the
other was thrown open by Mile. Na-
non, nnd the king entered tlio room.
Mme. de Maintenon rose with a pleasant smile and courtesied deeply, but
there was uo answering light upon
her visitor's face, and be threw himself down upon tbe vacant armchair
with a pouting lip aud a frown upon
his forehead.
"Nay, now this is a very bad compliment," she cried, with the gayety
which she could assume whenever It
was necessary to draw the kiug from
his blacker humors. "My poor little
dark room has already cast a shadow
over you."
"Nay; it is Father la Chaise and
tbe bishop of Meaux, who have been
after me all day like two bounds on a
stag, witb talk of my duty and my
position and my sins, with judgment
and hell fire ever at the end of their
"And wbat would tbey have your
majesty do?"
"Break tbe promise Which I made
wben I came upon the throne, and
which my grandfather made before
me. Tbey wish me to recall tbo edict
of Nantes, and drive the Huguenots
from tbe kingdom. You would not
have me do it, madame?"
"Not If it is to be a grief to your majesty. Bethink you, sire, that the Almighty can himself Incline their hearts
to better things if bo is so minded,

not leave it in his hands?"
"On my word," said Louis, brightening, "it is well put. I shall see if
Father la Chaise can find an answer
to tbat. It is hard to be threatened
with eternal flames because one will
not ruin one's kingdom."
"Wby should you think of such
things, sire?" said the lady in her rich,
soothing voice. "What have you to
fear, you who have been the flrst son
of lbe church?"
"You think that I am safe, then?
But I have erred aud erred deeply.
You have yourself said as much."
"But that Is all over, sire. Who la
there who is without stain? You bave
turned away from temptution. Surely, then, you have earned your forgiveness."
"I would that the queen were living
once more. She would find me a- better man."
"I would that she were, sire."
"And she should know that It was
to you tbat she owed the change. Oh,
Franeolse, you are surely my guardian
angel, who bus taken bodily form!
How can I thank you for what you
have done for me?" He leaned forward and took her baud, but at the
touch a sudden fire sprang into bis
eyes, and he would have passed his
other arm round her had she not risen
hurriedly to avoid the embrace.
"Sire!" said sbe, with a rigid face
and oue finger upraised.
"You are right; you are right, Franeolse. Sit down, and I will control
myself. But bow is it, Franeolse, that
you have such a heart of Ice?"
"I would it were so, sire."
"No. But surely no man's love has
ever stirred you! And yet you have
been a wife. You did not love this
Scarron?" be persisted. "He wos old,
I have beard, uud as lame as some of
his verses."
"Do not speak lightly of him, sire.
I was grateful to bim; I honored bim;
I liked bim."
"You did not lovo bim, Franeolse?"
"At least I did my duty toward
"Hns that nun's heart never yet

"Spare me, sire, I bog of you!"
"But I must ask, for my oWu peace
bangs upon your answer."
"Your words pain mo to the soul."
"Have you never, Franeolse, felt In
your heart some little flicker of tbo
lovo which glows In mine?" He rose
with bis hands outstretched, a pleading
monarch, but she, with half turned
bead, still shrank nway from bim.
"Be assured of one thing, sire," said
she, "tbat even If 1 loved you as no
woman ever loved a man, yet I Bhould
rather spring from that window on to

"You have wasted too much of your

Innermost thoughts of your heart. I
would see you spend tbe time tbat ts
left to you, sire, In building up the
church, In showing a noble example
to your subjects."
The king sank back Into his chair
with a groan. "Forever the Bame,"
said he. "Why, you are worse than
Father la Chaise and Bossuet."
"Nay, nay," said she gayly, with the
p__tlck tnct iu which she uever fulled.

If you were to leave me in solitude tomorrow and so cut off all the light of

"Pah!    It   brings  me  no  pleasure.
Here was a time when my blood was
stirred by tbe blare of the horn and the
rusn of the boofs, but now It ls alf
wearisome to me."
"Aud hawking too?"
"Yes; I shall hawk no more."
"But,  sire,  you  must have  amusement."
"Wbat is so dull as an amusement
which has ceased to amuse? I know
not bow it is. Wben I was but a lad,
and my mother and I were driven from
place to place, with the Fronde at war
witb us and Purls In revolt, with our
throne and even our lives iu danger,
all life seemed to be so bright, so new
and so full of Interest. Now that there
Is no shadow aud that my voice is the
flrst In France, as France's Is In Europe, all is dull and lacking in flavor.
He bowed profoundly three times.
What use is it to have all pleasure before uie when it turns to wormwood
when it is tasted?"
"True pleasure, sire, lies rather In the
inward life, the serene mind, the easy
conscience. Aud, then, ns wo grow
older is it uot natural tbat our minds
should tnke a graver bent? We might
well reproach ourselves If It were not
so, for it would show Ihat we had not
learned the lesson of life."
"It may be so, aud yet it Is sad and
weary when nothing amuses. Who ia
that knocking?" asked lbe king.
"It is my companion," said madame.
"What is it, mademoiselle?"
"M. Corneille, to rend to the king,"
said the young lady, opening tbe door.
"Ah, yes, sire; I know how foolish is
a woman's tongue, and so I have
brought a wiser one than uiiue here to
charm you. M. Racine was to have
come, but I hear that he has had a fall
from bis horse, and ho sends his friend
in bis place.   Shall 1 admit him?"
"Oh, ns you like, madame, ns you
like," said the king listlessly. At a
sign from Mile, Nanon a little peaky
man with u shrewd, petulant face aud
long gray hair falling back over bis
shoulders entered the room. He bowed
profoundly three times and then seated himself nervously on the very edge
of lbe stool, from which the lady had
removed her workbasket.
���'Shall It be a comedy, or a tragedy,
or a burlesque pastoral?" Corneille
asked timidly. "There is my 'Pretended Astrologer.'"
"i'es, that will do."
Corneille commenced to read his
comedy, while Mme. de Malutenon's
white and delicate fingers picked
among tbe many colored silks which
she was weaving into her tapestry.
I'Youi time to time she glanced across,
first at tbe clock and then at the kiug,

handkerchief thrown over his face. It
was twenty minutes to 4 now, but she
knew that she bad put It back half an
hour and that the true time was ten
mluutcs past.
"Tut, tut!" cried tbe king suddenly.
"There Is something amiss there. The
second lust line has a limp iu it surely." It was one of bis foibles to pose
as a critic, and tbe wise poet would
fall Iu with bis corrections, however
unreasonable they might be.
"Your majesty is perfectly right,"
said Corneille uiililiislilngly. "I shull
mark the passage und see that it ls
corrected." He picked up bis book
again and was about to resume his
rending when tbe king said:
"M. Corneille, I am obliged to you
for what yon havo read, and I regret
that I must now Interrupt your comedy. Some other day perhaps I may
have the pleasure of bearing the rest
of It." He smiled hi the gracious fashion which made all who came within

The poet, with bis book under his

Death and Tired Legs
Alpine climbing, long walking tours
and similar fatiguing recreations may
be suitable enough for those who
keep in training all the year round,
but are disastrous whose ordinary
exercise consists of a short daily wulk.
I have often thought that the reason of the many mountaineering accidents which we read of lies in the
inability of the muscles of the legs
te retain that steadiness and firmness which climbing demands, and
whicli are soon lost in the absence of
strenuous practice, or in those who
have never followed the sport seriously.���Cassell's ^Magazine.

British Gunner Made Thirteen Hits In
Fifty-Five Seconds.
A remarkable gunnery record haa
b?eri achieved by First-Class Petty
Offic.r George Roberts, of the cruiser
Good Hope, of gunnery. The shooting was in connection with the annual
guulayers' tests, which constitute the
naval Bisley, and P. O. Roberts has
the satisfaction of carrying off the
blue riband of the competitions for
light quick-firers. The tests were carried out on board the Good Hope,
flagship of the First Cruiser Squadron,
off the Long Sands, near the Nore".
P O. Roberts' weapon was the 12-
pounder, and the conditions were
against all good firing. The weather
was most unsuitable for good practice, and the light was very bad. The
Good Hope at the time of the test was
steaming at twelve knots, at a range
of 1,050 yards. The target was of
canvas, 6 feet by 8 feet. Thirteen
shots were fired in 55 seconds, and a
hit was scored with every shot. The
position of the hits, too, was excellent, and in every way the record is
remarkable. A number of photographs of the target were taken, and
P. O. Roberts was congratulated by
tlie officers of bis ship.
In all twelve mon took part in the
12-pounder competition.
In the three-pounder competition
W. Andrews, A.B., scored 13 hits witb
14 rounds. It is probable thut 13 hits
in 13 rounds with the J2-pounder and
13 bits in 14 rounds with tlie three
pounder are records. In any cose,
with a ship steaming at 12 knots 13
hits in 55 seconds is splendid shooting, and tlie general average will
place the Good Hope high up on the
A comparison with last year's results shows that both in individual
firing and as regards totals there has
been a marked advance. With the
12-pounders in the previous year the
best shot in the fleet made 10 hits,
and the best shot in the Good Hope
8 hits, as against, the 13 hits ic ired
by P. O. Roberts in the recent competition.

Wedding Customs.
The little customs that have come
to be a part of the marriage ceremony
have had diverse and interesting origins. The ring has played an important part.
With the coming in of Christianity
it was no longai placed on the right
forefinger, but on the left third finger.
The priest, or in some eases the groom,
first put it on tho thumb, saying, "In
ihe name of the father"; on the forefinger, adding, "In tbe name of the
Son"; on the second finger, continuing, "In the name ot the Holy Ghost";
then on the third finger with "Amen,"
���and there It remained.
The bridal veil, says the April Delineator, originated in Bible times
and was worn until all the public
ceremonies were over, bo it can readily be understood how Jacob was deceived into marrying Leah instead of
Lsr sister Rachel. In the Anglo-
Saxon wedding ceremony a square
piece of veiling was held ovor the
head of the bride to conceal her embarrassment. *
In tlie later B.'ble days, during the
period between tlie betrothal and the
wedding, the bride remained with her
friends and could communicate with
her affianced only through "the friend
of the bridegroom" as mentioned in
John iii., 29, who also performed
other services for the groom.
Throwing shoos originated in the
old Jewish custom of handing to the
purchaser of land an old shoe as a
token of surrender or renunciation
(Bee Ruth iv., 7). The bride's father
gave a shoe to the husband or threw
it after him to signify they surrendered to him all authority over their
Throwing rice symbolized fniitful-
ness nnd plenty, from its general distribution over the world.
Taking a husband's name originated in Roman times, though the date
is unknown. When Julia married
Pompey her name becamo Julia of
Pompey. Modern woman omit the
"of" in the name.
London Guards.
About fifty years ago something like
a rei_*n of terror existed among the
daily military guards at the Tower
on account of the appearance of alleged "ghosts" who were solemnly asserted to haunt certain portions of
the buildings from midnight to dawn.
Nothing could shake the garrison's
belief in these supernatural visitations, and one of its members actually died from fright. At last things arrived at such a pitch that it became
necessary to post double sentries on
every beat. The "ghosts," however,
still manifested themselves, and the
authorities were practically at their
wits' end to calm the superstitious
fears of the troops. Matters, indeed,
had almost culminated in general refusal to go on duty when the mystery
was cleared up. It appeared that the
spectres were the outcome of a stupid
practical joke on the part of some
young men who had studied the ghost-

Prof. Bolley States That Flaxseed
Draws Less Fertility from the Soil
Than Other Cereals���A Short Season Crop���Rotation of Crops Necessary.
Prof. Bolley, of the North Dakota
Government Agr" cultural Station, after a prolonged series of experiments
eume to the conclusion that the llax
crop as sueh is not more exhausting
to land tlinii other ordinary farm
crops. "Indeed," says Prof. Bolley,
"it has been shown by the experiments of our chemist and agriculturist and by my own biological experiments that the llax plant is less
radical in its draft upon the soil than
wheat, corn or oats."
It is almost universally recognized
by farmers of tlie North-Western
States that flaxseed is tlie most profitable crop for new lands and it has
become the common practice to sow
it on first breaking, but Prof. Bolley
is of the opinion that it may also be
very profitably grown on old lands
if a proper rotation is observed. He
points out that the summer season
!n tlie North-West is very short and
that consequently it is very desirable
thnt the fanners should have as many
different crops ns possible that will
mature in a short season. Flaxseed
is pre-eminently a short-season crop,
maturing more quickly than wheat,
outs or barley and the experiments
carried on by the Nortli Dakota Government agricultural station prove
that it may bo made a permanent
source of income to North-West farmers if tliey will grow it in rotation
with other crops.

Though I have never been sick myself, and have not bad oeeiisioii to use
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. 1 thought
you ougiit to know of the remarkable
cure tbey huve wrought in Mr. Old-
ing's  case.
During a visit to my home in Meri-
goniish, N.S., some years ago, I was
grieved to find our next door neighbor and friend, Michael Olding, very
low. "He is not expected to live,"
my mother informed me, "And you
must go over and see him ns he is
liable to pass away at any moment."
"Not expected to live," that was the
opinion not only of the doctor who
attended him, but of his wife and
family as well. Upon visiting him
myself I found abundant evidence to
confirm their opinion.
Mr. Olding had for years been afflicted with asthma and bronchitis,
but now n complication of diseases
was ravishing his system. He had
been confined to his bed for months
nnd was reduced to a skeleton.
Though evidently glad to see ine, be
conversed witli the greatest difficulty,
and seemed to realize that it was the
beginning of tlie end. lie was daily
growing weaker; his feet were swollen to twice their natural size, ami
the cold hand of death was upon bis
brow. "It's no use," he said feebly,
"tne doctor's medicine is not helping
me and I am going down rapidly."
1 prayed with him as for a man soon
to pass into eternity, and when I
took his hand in parting it was tbe
last time I expected to see him in
the flesh.
Three years later while on another
visit to my mother's, Michael Olding
was seemingly in better health than I
had ever seen him, for, ns T said, he
bad always been ailing. In sheer desperation lie bad asked his wife to get
j him Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. They
soon began to help him. His appetite
and strength began to improve, nnd
to the astonishment of his family and
friends be rapidly regained bis health.
Now, though the burden of well nigh
four score years is upon him, lie is
able to do a fair day's work, and is
in the enjoyment of good health,
even tlie asthma hns ceased to trouble him as in former years.
Mr. Olding himself, as well ns bis,
neighbors and the writer of this letter,
confidently believe* thnt his rescue
from the very jaws of dentil���seemingly so miraculous���is due under the
blessing of God to the timely and
continuous use of Dr. Williams' Pi.'1-ic
Pills. *****
Mr. Olding himself writes: "I am
glad Rev. Mr. Smith has written you
about my wonderful cure, for I confidently believe that if it had not
been for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills I
would have been dead long ago. It
would be impossible to exaggerate
tlie desperate condition I was in
when I began to use the Pills. No
one thought I could get better. I
scarcely dared hope myself that Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills would bring nie
through, but tuey did, nnd I have
ever since enjoyed good health.
Though I am seventy-nine years old
people are always remarking on how
young I look���and I feel young. I
can do a fair day's work, and I am
better in every way than I had been
for years. I cannot sny too much
in praise of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills

he said my finger would have lo be laken off. The pain fiom the wound was terrible and was extending right up
the arm. I consulted another medical man and was treated by him for some weeks longer. He then suggested
that the finger be opened ar.d the bone scraped. At ihis stage a friend advised trie to try some Zam-Buk which I
did. I halhed the wound and applied Zam-Buk as directed. Next morning the wound began to bleed. It was a
healthy sign so I continued wilhlhe treatment, and in a weeks
time I was able to discard the bandage. A little more
perseverence and Zam-Buk cured the wound completely."

Remarkable  Order  by  Gen.  Grenfell
to the Troops  In  Ireland.
With the object of discouraging cigarette-smoking Gen. Lord Grenfell,
Commander-in-Chief of the Forces in
Ireland, has issued an order to permit pipes only to be smoked on such
occasions as when the men are resting after field operations and manoeuvres. *
His order contains the following remarkable comment:
"The Commnnder of the Forcsehns,
during recent visits to military hospitals, been again struck with the
harm that the increasing prevalence of
cigarette-smoking is doing to the
health of the army. It is not confined to the army, and Parliament is
likely soon to deal with it as affecting
the national health.
"Lord Grenfell appeals to the Irish
command to give earnest and early
thought to combat what Is gradually
but greatly affecting its efficiency; and
he requires all commanding officers
to impress on those under their command the evils that must inevitably
ensue from this excess."
Plague of  Prickly  Pears.
In eastern Australia there are at
least 5,000,000 acres of land given over
to the prickly pear, which so far has
not shown one good quality, writes
T. S. Dunnet in The Empire Review.
Lobs than fifty years ago it was introduced as a hedge plant, for which
purpose it is admirable if its operations could be confined, but it has unconquerable ambitions and has reached out over vast areas. It thrives in
all sorts of soil.
There is no limit to its capacity as
a grower. It will hang on to life for
incredible periods, and even if a leaf
is left on a bare rock it will for
months maintain life until something
comes along and shifts it to a more
congenial locality.
Where it has the best hold it stands
twenty feet high in a solid mass, intertwining itself among the shrubbery
and encroaching upon the wheel
marks on the roadway. In some parts
of Queensland A would cost two and
three times as much to clear it as the
land would be w*orth when denuded
of its present impudent occupier.
Chemists hnve been at work trying
solutions which could be cheaply applied, but the pear daily moves onward and outward in its uninterrupted march.

"An ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure." The protection of a
forest from fire is one of tlie best possible illustrations of the old saying;
for often n few minutes spent in tho-
roughly extinguishing camp-fire or
a quarter of an hour passed in putting out an incipient blaze may mean,
and often has meant, the saving of
many thousands of dollurs worth of
timber. This is the main idea of the
patrol system carried on in Ontario
and Quebec forests for years past;
what is aimed nt is to discover the
fire in its early stages and put it out
then, before it has a chance to reach
large proportions.
Small mrest fires do a tremendous
amount of damage which is not realized. Such fires, burning in the dead
leaves and other litter of the forest
("surface" fires) or consuming tlie soil
itself ("ground" fires) wound the roots
and bases of the trees and these
wounds give an entrance to fungi nnd

forest reserve in Manitoba, it is found
that, among the poplar trees, three out

to the fact just mentioned, as the ".e-
serve has been repeatedly burned over

Most to be feared, of course, are
the fires wliich consume tlie entire
forest, the "crown" fires. Evidence
of many of tiiese can be seen in mile
nfter mile of the wooded districts of
Canada, where charred black trunks
are all that is left of what was once
a thick, green forest. Occasionally
even more serious disasters occur, as
in the well known Miramichi, N.B.,
fire of October, 1825, where 160 lives
were lost and a quarter of a million
pounds sterling were lost in property consumed.
British Ambassador Dead.
Sir Nicholas O'Conor, the British
Ambassador at Constantinople, who
died there recently, had a most distinguished career.
Born in Ireland in 1843, he entered
the diplomatic service in 1866.
He was attached to H.M.'s Embassy
at Berlin, 1867,70; subsequently served as secretary at The Hague, Madrid,
Rio de Janeiro, Paris and Pekin. He
returned to Pekin as Minister in 1892.
From 1895 to 1898 he was Ambassador at St. Petersburg. He was appointed to the Embassy at Constantinople in 1898.
Sir Nicholas had nenrly completed
ten years of service at Constantinople,
during which he had strenuously striven to improve the relations between
Turkey and the United Kingdom, a
task in which he had scored a large
measure of success. The Sultan held
him in high esteem.
Sir Nicholas is the first Britisli
Ambassador to die at bis post at Constantinople since Sir E. Barton, who
was Queen Elizabeth's Ambassador,
and died in 1598.

he swam like a duck and quickly disappeared toward liis home in the

Visibility of Lights.
The result of the experiments ln light
visibility conducted by Germany and
the Netherlands working in harmony
are given as follows: A light of one
candlepower is plainly visible at one
mile and one of three candlepower at
three miles. A ten candlepower light
was seen witb a binocular at four
miles, one of twenty-nine at Ave miles,
though faintly, and one of thirty-three
candlepower at the same distance
without difficulty. On an exceptionally clear night a white light of 3.2
candlepower could be distinguished at
three miles, one of 5.0 at four and one
of 17.2 at five miles.
The experiments were made wltb
green light, as It has been conclusively
proved that If a light of tbat color fills
the required test a red light of the
same Intensity will more than do so.
It was found that the candlepower of
green light whlcb remained visible at
one, two, three aud four miles was 2,
15, 51 and 100 respectively.���Philadelphia Record.

In a certain village the minister was
in the habit of calling at the school
and    putting    the   scholars   through
their facings.   One day he was crosB-
questioning a boy, when he happened
. to ask him if there were any prophets
nowadays.    This was a poser for the
youth as well as for the whole clasB,
I and  a  dead   silence   reigned   till   a
bright boy, the only son of a pushing
tradesman, extended his hnnd eagerly
toward the minister.
"Well, my lad, are there any prophets now?"
"Yes, sir; small profits and quiei

Resulting from artificial winter Ufa
is purified by Dr. A. W. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Few people breathe enough fresn
air in winter to purify the blood.
As a result spring finds the blood
laden wjth poisons and there are
headaches, pains in the limbs and
tired,   wornout  feelings.
The liver and kidneys become sluggish and clogged and quite fail in
their mission of filtering and purifying the blood.
It is because of their direct and
specific action on tiiese organs thnt
Dr. A. W. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
are so wonderfully effective as purifiers of .ie blood���for it is by means
of the liver and kidneys alone that
tlie  blood  can  be purified.
This medicine ensures regular and
healthful action of the bowels,
cleanses and invigorates the whole
digestive and excretory systems and
thereby removes the cause of pains
and aches, of tired, languid feelings,
biliousness, backache and constipation.
Purify the blood this Spring by using Dr. A. W. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills, and you will not know what it
is to feel depressed and to suffer tho
