Off the Beaten Track.
Last week our editor gotoff the beaten
truck in his search for copy for the
special nnmbi r. It was his pleasure to
take a trip through the Slocan valley
as fur as Koch's Siding on foot, and the
relaxation from ollice life was so much
enjoyed by tis that wo have promised
ourselves another outing of the same
kind in a few weeks. The object ol our
visit to that end ol tbe Silvery S'ocan
was to become better acquainted with
tlie dislrict and at the snme [time note
tlie progress that has been made by the
many ranchers ��ho have settled there
within tlie past few years.
Wo visited twenty farms along the
valliy and conversid with about thirty
ranchers, and we are proud and glad to
report that in every individual instance
all are prosperous and happy. The land
wliich has been taken up by tiiese settlers is most suitable for iruit culture,
and this of Course is the object and the
one absorbing topic. It would surprise
many who havo regularly traversed this
valley whilst comfortably lolling in a
C. P. R. tourist ear, if they would leave
the car for a few hours and stroll a mile
or so off the beaten track, to see tbe
rapid strides which havo been made by
tho pioneers of an industry that will
play a very important part in the future
prosperity of the Slocan. Three years
ago Mr. and Mrs. Schomberg, an industrious couple, well into the sere and
yellow of life, boniosleaded at I'orry'a
Siding, ami when we looked around and
noted the buildings and amount of land
under cultivation wc could not help but
bestow an encomium upon tlie worthy
old Dutchman and his estimable lady.
Poultry raising, too, is carried on by
tbem in a business-like manner, and the
proceeds obtained from the sale of eggs
and poultry has been a great factor in
enabling them to keep a stiff upper lip.
Mr. Schomberg told us with evident
satisfaction that he started farming
with no capital, but it must not be inferred Ihat we would advise others to
emulate his example. "Three yeais
ago," said Mr. Schomberg, "when I had
recorded my homestead, I had a capital
of two and a half dollars lo begin farming witli; but we rustled and kept pegging away at our land, and now the man
who wants to buy me out haa got lo pay
a fancy price. Hut I do not want to sell
yet. We have made a little money from
the turn loose, and when our fruit trees
mature we shall be comfortably rich. 1
take great pride in my trees and stock.
Fruit inspector Twigg was here last
week and he greatly praised my two-
y"har old trees, and he did not Condemn
one."
Around Perry's Siding there arc some
thirty ranches, and as there are several
families, tlie tanners are putting forth
efforts to secure a school.
Eveiyw here along the vadey we saw
farmhouses dotteil, houses wliich viewed
from the railroad appear to be built on
a hillside, but journey to them and the
readrr would be surprised at the large
area of fiat land surrounding him. So
with the bench lundi of Slocan lake.
An impression is .gained on a journey
down its placid waters liy steamer that
tlie liilis whicli abut therefrom are too
steep to permit of farming. This is far
from being the case. Strike inland anywhere, and after you have traversed a
few bundled yards and left the rugged
beach behind, you will behold land tbat
Ior fruit 'arming  is   iucompa*-able.     It
NEW DENVER, B.C.
ia a distinct advantage for fruit trees to
be cultivated upon an eaBV Elope, as
witness tlio superabundance of wild
fruit bushes which are oven now blooming.
But harking back to our journey; we
found all the ranchers along tlie valley
happy and very optimistic. All proudly
exhibited tlieir lands with their long
tiers ol apple, pear, plum and cherry
trees, all thriving. Seeding bus been
iu pi ogress on some farms for weeks,
and ploughing was proceeding on others.
Every whore there was smoke, denoing
that special attention is being devoted
to clearing land.
Near tliitellius we came upon the
ranch of Mr. McFayden, and here too
we saw that tapid progress has been
made in three years. Mr. McFayden
lias about 1108 acres fenced in, and about
80 now under cultivation. Here is another sterling example of what can be
accomplished by grit and muscle alone.
Mr. McFayden a few weeks ngo turned
down aif offer of $12,000 for liis ranch.
There are several other ranchers in tlie
neighborhood of the McFayden ranch",
and thev fondly call the district "Bachelors Kow," for leasona that aro obvious.
They are making good homes for some
lucky girl who will take cliancca on a
rural life.
We struck Kock'a siding very late in
tlie evening, and vory tiled, where wo
were entertained royally by Mr. W. C.
E. Koch's commissariat department,
which is under the care of Messrs. Dis-
nev and McLeod.
The following morning we were out
on the beat early and we did considerable reconnoitring before tlie train
catigh. np tons. Below Winlaw a mudslide delayed the train three hours and
that gave us further opportunity for investigation.
We wish to thank very heartily all
the farmers and ol hers who gave open
house to us during a very enjoyable
trip.	
Jack Holilen left Monday for a month's
trip to Spokane. He will possibly return with a mouthful of new ivories.

"Tom Cobb."
Good progress is being made with the
three-act comedy "Tom Cobb, or Fortune's Toy," which will bo presented at
the Bosun Hall on Monday, May 25th,
after the celebration. The cast is an
exceedingly good one, and the plot
abounds in ludicrous situations which
will cause roars of laughter. The company are working hard , to make thia
speciality a decided success, and aa we
arc in a position to judge, we would say
they are in a iair way of realizing their
hopes.   The caste is as follows:���
Colonel O'Fipp, an Irish adveutu-er
J. J. Atherton
Tom Cobb, a surgeon 0. F. Kelson
Whipple, a surgeon. ...T. T. Rankine
Matilda O'Fipp, the Colonel's daughter

Mrs. Effingham Miss Cue
Bulstrode Effingham F. D, Kelly
Caroline Effingham
Mrs. T. T. Rankine
Members of a romantic family.
Matilda .Tune Ann-Miss li. Macdonald
Footman II. Thomlinson
Tlie play was first produced at St.
James Theatre, thiity years ago, when
it enjoyed a long-run, and although
Slocan audiences will not expect quite
so much dramatic ability in tlio local
Thespians as from Irving or Ellen Terry,
yet those who have been privileged to
witness the rehearsals have ventured to
assert that they will run tliem very
close. By tbe way, we wish to say that
tlie party who has got a corner on tho
stale eggs is known, and hell will he out
for lecess if he doesn't hike for the tal*
timber before the 26th pi ox.      ���.____
.We are still ot the opinion that tlie
lead bounty is a fake under existing
conditions. If thu extension is granted
without any demand upon iho Bineller
for a fixed treatment rate, then it is
proof positive of coalition, and the poor
shipper of lead ore will get it where tlie
the chicken got the axe when the parson
came to sapper. Tlie Ottawa liouso is
a long time making up its mind to make
the extension, however, which goes to
show that even politicians think
occasionally.

ON WEDNESDAY NEXT, MAY 23ND,       AT 8 p.m. SHARP
VANCOUVER mine;was THE LARGEST PRODUCER IN THE PROVINCE OF SILVER LEAD FOR 1907
WITH ONE EXCEPTI ON.
At tbe seventh annual general meeting
of the shareholders of tlu Le Roi No. 2
Limited, whicli was held recently at
Salisbury House, London, E.C, Lord
Ernest Hamilton presiding, it waa proposed to float's, new company to work
the Vancouver mine at Silverton, a
decision thnt has caused general satisfaction iu the Slocan, The report which
wai as follows, will bo read witli intor-
ost:���
In regard to tho Vancouver mino, Binco
we have had an option on tlio mine, we
have in eighteen months shipped concentrates and oro of more than *. 100,000
in value, most of whicli we have been
compelled to dispose of when prices were
lower than than they havo been for
years. The difficulties which���aa related above���proved sueh a hindrance to
our work at the Josie fi!T***s caused us
even more trouble at the Vanrouvor.
The coal strike led to disorganised shipments, interfered with tho running of
the concentrator and upset stoping operations in tlie mine itself. Following
on this tlie exceptionally severe winter
made tlie running and repairing of the
mill very troublesome, and later the increase in the price ol metals and wagos
drew away a largo percentage of our
men. Working aa we were with hand
eteel, the labor sborlagc waa felt even
more than at tho Josie. As indicated ill
tlio report, tlio work has resulted in the
opening up of four vory line looking
chutes of. ore at the Vancouver or western end of the mine, and wo havo every
reason to believe that very little further
work at the Mountain Boomer will open
up a iiftli chute. The length of vein between tlio faces of tlie nearest workings
advancing east and west is 1,500 leet.
The vein is easy to follow, and tlio
chutes met witli are high grade in silver.
The soutli vein, whicli we havej had no
time to prospect, looks promising at
both enda of tho properly. It outcrops
in the form of very fine looking galena
on the hill south of the Mountain
Boomer. The Vancouver mine requires
a compressor to open up tho vein quickly and systematically, and mention is
made in tlie report of th�� water power
available for thia purpose. Tbe vein
can bo opened up by tunnel sites for
several hundred feet, below the present
lowest workings, and neither shaft sinking nor pumping will be necessary.
During tlie past year we extracted more
ore and made more higli-grale concentrates than any other mine except one
in the lead-silver belt of Britisli Columbia, and this record can bo maintained
by tlie application of machinery to tlie
work. Since the Vancouver report was
made up, another 5,000 tons of ore have
been exposed at the western end of tbo
property, and there will be no difficulty
in following the ore showing in
lhe various faces anl continuing to in-
cioase the ore reserves in a similar manner. In the report on the Vancouver
property we havo taken figures on tho
pest eighteen months as applying to tiie
future, except that we consider that tho
compressors we can mine very much
cheaper than before, but to far aa the
values are concerned we have taken the
figures ol the past eighteen months to
apply to tho future -because they arc tbe
best sample of tbe values, As a matter
of fact, when wc get started running by
sorting our ore we will reducu the quantity of oie going through the mi!l and
improve tbe quality, so that the profits
per ton, which are here worked out at
about $3.50, can easily be improved.
Tlie quantity of ore is just a question of
rapid developeinent, and wheu we get
an air compressor it will inable us to
push things much quicker than we have
been able to do when wo did it by hand
drills,    (Applause.)
PROPOSED FLOTATION.
The Chairman said witli regard to
the Vancouver property Mr. * Cou Idrey
had said sufficient lo convince the shareholders that they had un exceptional
property in thu Vancouver. There were
certain things they knew by Practical experiment, because for over a year they
bad been working thia mine, and tbey
knew how tliey could take the oro out,
how tliey could ticat it, bow they could
get it to the mill, how they could ship
it to the smelter. What they did not
know and could not perceive was tlie
fluctuations in Hie price of metals and
what ore was iu the mino beyond wbat
was at the moment expos *d and in
sight. However there eeema to be no
poeaibledoubtthat they bad a very good
property. What tboy proposed was to
form a company with a capital of JC100,
000 in ��1 shares, divided into 30,000
preference shares and 70,000 ordinary
shares. Tbo 30,000 preference shares
would bo the working capital, which
would bo offerred for subscription.
Those who subscribed for tlioso 30,000
preference shares would get as a bonus
20,000 ordinary shares. With regard to
the distribution of tho profits' it was
proposed that an annual dividend of 10
per cent, on the whole of tlie capita! of
tho company would be first paid.     Thi*.
would absorb ��10,000. Any surplus
profit available for distribution after
that 10 per cent bad been paid was to
go lo the holders of the S0,000 preference : inirea until they had been paid
in full. From that moment the preference i-haro would cease to exist as preference shares, but tbey would rank as
ordinary shares. That was an outline
of the Bcherne they bad in view, but it
was not intended to lake any formal
vole on the matter at this meeting. He
might add thev proposed to offer these
30 000 preference shares to the shareholders of thia company, so that tlie
advantages accruing from thia dotation
will be divided amongst tho shareholders, nitber qua shareholders puro ami
simple ot' as members of this company.
In answer lo further questions the
Chairman stated that it wns tho intention of tho Directors to eend to tho
shareholders full details of tbo scheme
and also to invito lliem to subscribe for
the shares, ami he had not the slightest
doubt the money would bo Bubsciihed,
because if tlie shareholders did not care
to take them up there were others who
were ready to do so. Tho terms were
very favourubl. and not those which
would be offered to an ouisider.
On the motion of Mr. Lionel Harris a
cordial vote of thanks was piiBBod to the
Chairman, Directors, and staff for the
way in wliich they had conducted tho
affairs of tho Company.���"Financial

Our Fruit Growers' Column.
It was my privilege to attend a meeting of tlie Kootenay Fruit Growers'
Association, held in Nelson last Friday,
and bear their new Secretary Mr. Brock,
outline liis scheme of work for tho season. First I may say that I was vory
favourably Impressed by Mr. Brock,
who appears to bo most energetic and
capable, with strong ideas of his own,
but at tlie same time lie aeems to have
the Bonse to be able to adapt himself to
different conditions, and to be willing*
to profit by local experience. We can
well wish the Kootenay Fruit Growers'
Association every Biiccess, for they are
doing most Important work, and unless
these efforts to cooperate and supply
tlie markets of the North-west, etc., iu
a methodical and businesslike manner
are a success, we cannot expect to hoM
the market and prevent great loss by
overstocking some points and leaving
some places unstipplied.
A notable figure at thu meeting was
Mr. Wigen of Creston, the veteran straw-
be ..y grower, who has made such a
marvellous eu::cess of his own place, and
Who is so good natured in helping his
neighbors by advice and example. Ho
has won for himself a splendid market
and can dispo.se of his crop easily, but
he sees the absolute necessity o: cooperation, and waa there to assist in

Mr. Wigen-was called on for a speech,
but explained that.be was no speaker*,
when however the discussion waxed
warm as to lhe varieties ui strawberries
to plant and the method of handling the
crop, the old gentleman Was soon in tho
thick of the fray and tlie discussion became very Interesting,
Warfield, Magootn, Wilson, and
Clark's seedling all had theirchampious.
Mr. Brock, who is from tlie famous
Hood River district,- stated that the
Clark's seedling will not flourish in tho
neighbourhood of other varieties of
strawberry plants. Perhaps this may
account for their non-success when Mr.
Vanstone tried tliem at Rosebery. Mr.
Martin Burrell strongly recommends
Clark's seedling, and 1 have ordered
some 600 plants from him. If any are
in a position to give some of these plants
a fair trial away from any other variety,
I will gladly give them some plants free.
Mr. Brock strongly insisted that tho
telephone was indispensable lo tho

The kitchen vas in perfect order, for
Flora had been busy tbere as elsewhere. The kettle was boiling on the
stove, while two or three little covered dishes were ranged upon the
hearth, as il waiting for someone.
Grandpa Markham hud gone out, but
Uncle Josenh sat in his accustomed
corner, rubbing liis hands when he
saw Maddy. and nodding mysterious-
It '-ti-nrd tbe front room, the door of
which wns open, so thnt Maddy could
hear the fire crackling on the hearth.
"Go in, go in," Uncle Joseph said,
waving his hand in that direction.
"My Lord Governor is in there waiting fnr you. He won't let me spit on
the floor any more ns Martha did, nnd
I've swallowed so much that I'm almost choked."
Continual spittinc wns one of
Uncle Jod'-n't'o worst habits, and as
bis oioter bnd indulged bim in it, it
bnd become n source of great annoyance both to Maddy nnd to someone
else of whose proximity Mnddy did
not dream. Thinking that Uncle Joseph f**ferred to hor grandfather, and
feeling clad Hint the latter hnd attempted a reform, she entered the
room known nt tbe cottage ns the
parlor, the one where the rng carpet
was, the six cane-seated chairs and
the Boston rocker, nnd now the little
round table was nicely laid for two,
while cozily seated in the rocking-
chair rpnrlinc* last night's paper and
looking very handsome and happy,
wa** Guy I
When Maddy prayed that he might
come and see her she did not expect
nn answer so soon, and she started
back in much surprise, while Guy
came easily forward to greet her, asking how she was, once telling her she
looking tired and thin, then making
her take the chair he had vacated,
he stood over her, smoothing her hair,
while he continued:
"I have taken some liberties, you
see, and have made myself quite at
home. I knew how unaccustomed you
were to the duties of a house, and as
1 Baw that girl was wholly incompetent, I denied myself at least two
hours' sleep this morning for the
Bake of getting here early, bringing
Flora with me and a few things
which I thought would be for your
comfort. You must excuse me, but
Flora looked so cold when she came
down from your chamber, where I
sent her to see how you were, that
with your grandfather's permission I
ordered a fire to be kindled there. I
hone you liked it. This house is very
cold."
He kept talking on, and Maddy in
a delicious kind of bewilderment listened to him, wondering if ever before there was n person so kind and
good as Guy. And really Guy waa
doino* great violence to his pride by
beip<* there as he was, but he could
do anything for Maddy, and so he
had forced down his pride, trying for
her sake to make the cottage as
pleasant ns possible. With Flora to
assist he hnd succeeded wonderfully,
and was really enjoying it himself.
At first Maddy could not thank him,
her benrt wns so full, but Guy was
satisfied with the expression of her
faco. and callinc Flora he bade her
serve  the  breakfast.
"You know my habits," he said,
smilin"lv. ns be took a seat at the
table, "and breakfasting at duylight,
es I did, has given me an appetite;
so, with jour permission, I'll carve
this nice bit ol steak for you, while
you pour me a cup of coffee, some of
Mrs. Noah's best. Sbe"���Guy was
goin<* to say, ' -?nt it," but as no
stretch of the imagination could construe her "calling him a tool" into
sending Maddy coffee, he added instead, "I brought it from Aikenside,
together with this strawberry jelly,
of which I remember you were fond;"
nnd he helped Maddy lavishly from
tiie fanciful jelly jar which yesterday
was adorning tlie sweetmeat closet at
Aikenside.
How chatty and Bocial he was, trying to cheer Maddy up and make her
forget that such a thing as death had
so lately found entrance there; talk-
in? of Jessie, of Aikenside, of the
pleasant little time they would have
d'T-W the vacation, and of the next
term at school, when Maddy, as one
of the-^raduating class, would not be
kept in as strictly as heretofore, but
allowed to see more of the city.
Mn**' 'v felt as if sbe should die for
the pain tugging at her heart, while
plie listened to him and knew that
the pictures lie was drawing were not
for her. Her place was there; and

to be an imperative duty. Guy had
rpxnnetrtd something like this nnd waa
prepared, as he thought, to combat

fn'qriM. \,r. replied thnt of course he
f**d not wish to interfere with her
duty, but there might bo a question
ns to whnt renlly was her duty, and
it seemed to him he wan better able
to judire of that thnn herself. It was
not rieht for her to bury herself there
while her education was unfinished,
who" onnther could do as well. Her
(;,���,-_:.,*. i���i������i_ were given to her to
improve, and how could she improve
them in Honedale; besides her
grandfather did not expect her to
r*iv. Guy had talked with him while
she was asleep, nnd the matter was
all arranged; a competent woman was
to he nired to tnke chnrce of the domestic nrrnniremcrits, nnd if it seemed desirable, two shi-mld he procured;
anvthing to lenve Mnddy free.
"And grandofl consented to this

throb of pleasure nt thoughts of release "But G'"* could not answer that
the   erandfntber  consented   willingly.
"He thinks it best. When he comes
bnck vou can nsk him yourself," he
said, just, as Uncle Joseph, opening
tbe door, brought their interview to a
close by asking very meekly, "if it
wn-'*1 plensf* the Lord Governor to
let him spit!"
The blood rushed at once to Maddy's fnce and she could not repress
a smile, while Guy laughed aloud,
BBvinc to her softly: "Por your sake,
I tried my skill to stop what I knew

tog-ether with the promise of a handsome spittoon, which should be sent
down on the morrow. With a bow
Unci-** Joseph turned away, mutter-
in*' to himself, "High doings now
Martha's gone; but new lords, new
laws. I trust he's not going to live
here"; and slyly he asked Flora il
the Lord Governor had brought his
things!
At this point Grandpa Markham
came in, and to him Guy appealed
at once to know if he were not willing
for Maddy to return to school.
"I said she might if she thought
best," wns the reply, spoken so sadly
that Maddy's arms were at once twined around the old man's neck, while
she said to him:
"Tell me honestly which you prefer.
I'd like so much to co to school, but I
am not sure I should be happy there,
kniw.**" !10w. lonely you were here at
home. Say. grandpa, which would you
rather now, honor brieht?" and Maddy tried to speak playfully, though
her heart-beats were almost audible
as she waited for the answer.
Grandpa could not deceive. He
wanted his darling sorely, and he
wanted her to be happy, he Baid.
Perhaps they would get on just as
well without her. When Mr. Guy was
talkine it looked as if they might,
he made it all so plain, but the sight
of Maddy was a comfort. She was
all he had left. Maybe he shouldn't
live long to pester her, and if he
didn'* wouldn't she always feel better
for having stayed with her grandpa?
He looked very pale and thin, and
his "mir waa white as snow. He could
not live many years, and turning
resolutely from Guy, who, so long
as he held her eyes, controlled her,
Maddy said:
"I've chosen once for all. I'll stay
with grandpa till he dies," and with
a convulsive Bob she clung tightly to
his neck, as if fearful that without
such hold her resolution would give
way.
Tt ������������is in vain that Guy strove to
change Maddy's resolution. She was
wholly decided, and late in the after-
nor-t" he rode back to Aikenside, a
disappointed man. with, however, the
feeline that Maddy had done right,
and that he respected ber all the more
for withstanding the temptation.
CHAPTER XIX.
It was arranged that Flora should
for the present at least remain at the
cottage, and Maddy accepted the kindness gratefully. She had become so
much accustomed to being cared for
by Guy that she almost looked upon
it as a matter of course, and did
not think of what others might possibly say, but when, in as delicate
a manner as possible, Guy suggested furnishing the cottage in better
style, even proposing to modernize it
entirely in the spring, Maddy objected at once. They were already indebted to him for more than tbey could
ever pay, she said, and she would
not suffer it. So Guy submitted,
though it grated upon his sense of
the beautiful and refined terribly, to
see Maddy nmid so humble surroundings. Twice a week, and sometimes oftener, he rode down to Hone-
dule, and Maddy felt that without
these visits life would hardly have
been endurable.
During the vacation Jessie spent a
part of the time with her. but Agnes
resolutely resisted all Guy's enirea-
ties that she would at least call once
on Maddy, who had expressed a wish
to see her, and who, on account ol
her grandfather's health, and the
childishness with which Uncle Joseph clung to her, could not well come
up to Aikenside. Agnes would not
go down, neither would she give other
reason for her obstinacy than the apparently foolish one that she did not
wish to see the crazy man. Still she
she did not object to Jessie's going
as olten as Bhe liked, and she sent
by her many little delicacies from
the larder at Aikenside, some foi
grandpa, but most for Uncle Joseph
who prized highly everything coming
from "the madam," and sent back to
her more than one strangely worded
message which made thp proud woman's eyes overflow when sure that no
one could see her. But this kind ot
intercourse came to an end at last
The vacation was over, Jessie had
gone back to school, and Maddy began in sober earnest the new life before her. Flora, it is true, relieved
her of all household drudgery, but
no one could share the burden oi
care and anxiety pressing so heavily
upon her, anxiety for her grandfather, whose health seemed failing so
fast, and who always looked so djs
turbed  il  a shadow  were  resting on
her bright lace, or her voice were less
cheerful in its tone, and care for the
imbecile Joseph, who clung to her
as a puny child clings to its mother,
refusing to be enred for by anyone
else, and often requiring of ber more
than her strength could endure for a
great length of time. She it waa who
gave him his breakfast in the morning, amused him through the day, and
then, after he waa in bed at night,
often sat by his aide till a late hour,
singing to him old songs, or telling
Bible stories until he fell away to
sleep.
Those were dark, wearisome days
to Maddy, and when the long, cold
winter was gone from the New England hills, and the early buds of
spring were coming up by the cottage door, the neighbors began to
talk of the chance which had come
over the young cirl, once so full of
life and health, hut now bo languid
and pale. Still Mnddv wns not unhappy, nor was the discipline too severe, for bv it sup learned nt last the
"rent obi��*ct of life! learned to tnke

letters from tbe doctor, but latterly
they gave her less pleasure than pain,

kind, friendly messaees of sympathy
and remembrance, the Tempter whispered to her that thoneh she did not
love him as she nueh* to 'nvp her husband, yet a life with him was far
preferable to the life she was living,
and the receipt of one of his letters
always gave her a pang which lasted

Maddy little guessed how often the
oroud woman cried herself to sleep
ifter listening to Jpssie's recital of
all Maddy had to do for the crazy

He had taken a fancy tbat Maddy
must tell him stories of 8arah, describing her as she was now. not as
she used to be when he knew her.
but now. "What ia she now? How
does she look? Whnt does sbe wear?
Tell me, tell me'" he would plead.
"ntil Maddy, forced to tell him something, and hnvinc distinctly in her
mind but one fashionable woman such
as she fancied Sarah might be. told

Joseph, listening with parted lips and
hushed breath, would whisper soft-
ly, "Yes, flint's Snrah, beautiful

man now grew excited, as, raisin"
himself in bed, he gesticulated wildly, "had I a voice to reach her, I'd
cry shame on her. to let you do Iipt
work, let you wear your young life
and fresh, bright beauty all away for
me, whom she ruined."
The voice he crnved, or the echo
of it, did reach her, for Jessie hnd
been present when the fancy first
seized him to henr of Snrah, nnd in
the shadowy twilight Bhe told her
mother all, dwelling most upon the
touching sadness of his face when
he said, "Does she know how sick

THE MYSTERY OF SLEEP.
No Man Knows When the Moment of
Unconsciousness Comes.
There ls a remarkable fact connected
with sleep which must uot be overlooked. Tbe sleep of a human' being.
If we nre not too busy to attend to the
matter, always evokes a certain feeling
of awe. Go into a room where a person is sleeping, and It Ib difficult to
resist the sense tbut one ls In the presence of the central mystery of existence. People who remember how constantly they see old Jones asleep In
the club library will smile at this, but
look quietly and alouo even at old
Jones and the seuse of mystery will
soon develop.
It is no good to say that sleep Is only
"moving" because It looks like death.
The person who ls breathing so loudly
as to take away all thought of death
causes tbe sense of awe quite as easily
as the silent sleeper who hardly seems
to breathe.
We see death seldom, but were It
more familiar we doubt if a corpse
would Inspire so much awe as the unconscious ami sleeping figure���a smiling, Irresponsible doll. Hesh and blood,
but a doll to whom iu a second may
be called a proud, active, controlling
consciousness which will ride bis bodi-
ly and his mental borse with a hand
of iron, which will force thut body to
endure toll and misery and will make
that mind, now wandering In paths of
fantastic folly, grapple with some great
problem or throw all Us force Into the
ruling, the saving or the destruction
of mankind. The corpse Is only so
much bone, muscle nnd tissue; tbe
sleeping body is the house which a
quick anil eager master has ouly left
for an hour or so.
Let any one who thinks sleep ls not
a mystery try to observe In himself
the process by which sleep comes and
to notice how and when and undei
what conditions he loses consciousness.
He will, of course, utterly fail to put
his finger on the moment of sleep coming, but In striving to get us close as
he can to the phenomena of s'eep he
will realize how great is the n.ystery
which he is trying to fathom.
A  JAPANESE  DINNER.
Plenty of Variety, but Too Much Salt
For American  Palates.
"I am afraid you won't like It," said
the young Japanese baron. "You insisted, though, on a real Japanese dinner.   So what wns I tri""do?"
They seated themselves, the three
girls and he, upon the green silk cushions placed on a .parquetry floor about
a little table a foot high. A Japanese
servant entered with the tea, and the
Japanese dinner began.
For flrst course there were sweet blB-
cult and tea���delicate tea of the April
harvest, "first chop" tea, formerly
served with cherry spoons and a poem
for each guest.
Next came ushlo, a salty soup, with
which the national wine, called sake,
was served in flat saucers.
The third course was a little raw fish,
very salty and steeped ln a sour and
appetizing sauce. The guests, contrary to their expectation, found the
raw flsh no more difficult to eat than
raw oysters. With this course went a
salad of white chrysanthemums.
The elaborate fourth course consisted of boiled chestnuts and a paste of
sharks' fins, quail roasted and hashed
with preserved cherries and crawfish
with eggs. These viands were all arranged decoratlvely on one large dish.
The fifth course, also on one dish,
was boiled bamboo shoots with soy,
salted mushrooms and a cold boiled
salmon and cold boiled perch, with
pickled shoots of the ginger plant
Next came a soup of seaweed, bitter, salty, decidedly good; next an assortment of nuts boiled In soy; next
salt relishes; next delicious boiled
rice, the grains ns large as cherries,
and, to conclude, tea again.
The young girls as tliey rose from
their low cushions and limped about

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Sciatica :s neuralgia of the sciatic
nerve. Its origin is generally rheumatism and is the direct result of
taking cold. For this reason the
disease is commonly known as "sciatic
rheumatism."
There is only one thing more painful than sciatica and that is the
treatment of it as practiced. The sickening burning of the flesh is only
one of the forms of cruelty employed
by the old school doctors, and all too
often this ia entirely vain for the relief gained is but temporary.
It is a scientific fact tbat the majority of sciatica cases result from exposure to cold when the patient is in
an anaemic or bloodless condition, in
which the nerve is literally starved.
It needs no argument to show any
reasonable person that a starved nerve
cannot be fed by the application of a
bot iron to the outei flesh. It may
deaden the sciatic pain for a time
but it will not oure sciatica.
Absolute rest *s the best aid to proper medical treatment. Rest and Dr.
Wi'Pams' Pink Pills, which actually
make new blood and thus feed the
starved nerve, wiN* cure most cases.
Mr. H. W. Await is one of the lead,
ing merchants of Hem-lord, N. S. A
few yenrs ago he was a great sufferer
from this excruciating trouble. He
says:���"Tbe attack was so severe that
I had been off work for some time.
The cords of my legs were all drawn
up and I could only limp along with
the aid of a stick. The pain I suffered wns terrible. I was in misery both
dny and night. Every movement caused me such pain as only those wbo
have been tortured with sciatica know.
I was treated by several doctors, .but
they did not help me a bit. In fact
I a'most began to think my condition
was hopeless, when Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills were brought to my notice.
I got a half dozen boxes. I bad used
the entire quantity before I found any
benefit. But I was encouraged and
got a second half dozen boxes, and
before these were all gone every vestige of tlie trouble had disappeared.
Not only this, but I was improved
in health in every way. as it will be
readily understood that the long seige
of pain 1 had suffered bad left me
badly run down. I can't speak too
highly of Dr .Williams' Pink Pills.
I can't recommend them too strongly
to other sufferers."
Sciatica is stubborn in resisting
treatment and the patient often suffers for years. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills do not simply relieve the pain.
Tbey cure the disease caused by poor
watery blood. Tliey actually make
new blood and hnve therefore a direct
and powerful curative effect on such
diseases ns rheumatism, anaemia,
general debility and after effects of
the grip. As the nerves depend upon
the blood for nourishment. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills nre unequalled for
the treatment of even the most severe
neivous disorders, such as neuralgia,
partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance,
and locomotor ataxia. As a tonic for
the blood and nerves they are used
everywhere with the greatest success,
bui'ding up wasted bodies and bring-
ine the glow of health to pale and

A Witty Irish Judge.
Mr. Doherty, who was chief justice
of the Irish court of common pleas
from 1S30 till his death iu 1840, was
fained for his wit. The gossip in the
hall of the four courts, which of course
reached the bench! was that one of
the judges had been somewhat excited
by wine at an entertainment in Dublin
castle on the previous evening. "Is tt
true," the chief justice was asked,
"that Judge ��� dnuced at the castle
ball last night?" "Well," replied Doherty, "I certainly can say that I saw
him ln a reel."
"As I came nlong the quay," remarked one of the officers of tbe court
whose face was remarkably hatchet
shaped, "the wind was cutting my
face." "Upon my houor," replied tbe
chief Justice, "I think the wind had
the worst of It."���London Law Notes.
Swiss Naval Wars.
References to the Swiss navy are
usually jocular, but It ls none the less
a fact that ships of war ouce floated
and eveu fought on the waters of the
lake of Geneva. The great fleet was
that of the Duke of Savoy, who at the
beginning of the fourteenth century
maintained a number of war galleys
armed with rams aud protected by
turrets and propelled by a crew of
oarsmen varying In number from forty to seventy-two. These vessels besieged Versolx aud even blockaded
Geneva. But Geneva also had a fleet
which helped In the capture of Cbllon
ln 1530, and wben the Bernese annexed the canton of Vaud they, too,
.had tjielr flotilla. Their largest vessel
was the Great Bear, with 64 oarsmen,

Canada's Forest Area
Canada's forest area has been variously estimated at from eight hundred million to three hundred million acres. The latter is the latest
estimate and was given by Dr. B. E.
Fernow, the recent'y appointed Deah
of the Faculty of Forestry at the University of Toronto. He is one of the
best authorities on forest subjects on
the continent and for years was head
of the United States Bureau of Forestry. His estimate, he thinks, "will
cover the commercially valuable tim-
berland area, actual and potential."
At this estimate the forest area of
Canada is "not much more than one-
half of the commercial 'orest area of
the United States."
Mr. R. H. Campbell, Superintendent of Forestry for tlie Dominion
government, gives a rather larger estimate. He calculates the terest area
oi tlie Dominion at about 035 million
acres,  divided  as   follows:
Acres.
Britisli  Columbia    182 million
Man., Susk., Alta., and unorganized territories   180       "
Ontario    40       "
Quebec    120
New Brunswick     7%   "
Nova Scotia    S       "
"Inexhaustible" used to be a favorite word to describe Canada's forests. But tbe drop from tlio old figure of 800 million acres to the more
recent ones given above allows clearly
that the more Canada's forest wealth
is Investigated, the less are p:>ople inclined to use that word. Great as
this wealth mny be, it is 'or Canada
to husband her resources and make
her forests a permanent asset. In
older to do this, she must carefully
protect her forests nnd see to their
being reproduced, that a future supply of timber may be ensured from
them. This would menu the careful
management of those lands on scientific and business principles, and tiiese
it is that the forestry movement is
seeking to introduce throughout the
Dominion.

When an eminent authority announced in a leading Montreal daily
that he had found a new way to treat
that dread American disease, Rheumatism, with just common, every-day
drugs found in any drug store, the
phys;cians were slow indeed to attach
much importance to his claims. This
was only a few months ago. Today
nearly every newspaper in the country, even tlie metropolitan dailies, is
announcing it and tlie splendid results
achieved. It is so simp'e that any
one can prepare it at home at small
cost. It is made up as follows: Get
from any good prescription pharmacy
F'uid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;
Compound Syrup Sinsapari"ii, three
ounces. Mix by shaking in a bottle
and take in teaspoonful doses alter
each meal and at bedtime. These are
all simple ingredients, making an absolutely harmless home remedy at
little cost.

Japanese Pilgrimage to Its Tempest
Swept Summit.
To the people of Japan the mount
Fujiyama ls sacred. The meaning of
tbe word ls "houorable mountain."
During that brief six weeks of summer
when Fujiyama's wind swept sides are
cliuibnble, writes A. H. Edwards ln
"Kakemono," the pilgrims come in
thousands, in ten thousands. Tbey
dress themselves In white from head
to foot. They carry long staves of
pure white wood In their hands, each
Btamped with the temple crest, and in
bands and companies tbey climb the
mountain
Always the leader at their bead, bis
staff crowned with a tinkling mass of
bells, like tiny cymbals, chants the
hymn of Fujiyama. For six short
summer weeks they come. Then the
winds rush down, the snow falls, the
tempests rage, and Lord Fujiyama lives
alone.
No human being bas yet stayed a
winter on his summit, and even ln the
summer weeks the winds will blow the
luva blocks from the walls of the rest
bouses aud sometimes tbe pilgrim from
the path.
FuJIyamu stands alone, not one peak
among a range, but utterly alone. Rising straight out of tbe sea on one side
and from the great Tokyo plain on the
other, his 12,'.0.r> feet In two long curving lines of exquisite gruce rise up and
up Into tbe blue, and not an Inch of
one foot is bidden or lost. It is all
there, visible as a tower built on a treeless plain. It dominates the landscape.
It can be seen from thirteen provinces,
and from a hundred miles at sea tbe
pale white peak of Fujiyama floats
above tbe blue.
AERIAL NAVIGATION.
The First Gas Bag and the First Dirigible Balloon.
On the 1st of December, 1783, when
the flrst gas balloon rose from thc
Tuilerles*' carried up by Charles and
Robert, the Marquis de Vllleroy, un
octogeuarlan and skeptic, declared It
was tempting God himself. He was
rolled In bis armchair to a wludow of
his chateau to witness the Impossibility of sucb an ascension. But the moment the aeronaut, gayly saluting the
spectators, rose In the air, the old man,
passing suddenly from the most complete incredulity to unlimited faith in
the power of geulus, fell upou his
knees and exclaimed: "0 men, ye will
find the secret of never dying! And it
will be when I am dead!"
The public, easily confounding tbe
atmospheric with the astronomic heavens, already balled tbe day when the
aeronaut would continue his aerial
course to the moon, to Venus, to Mars
or Jupiter.
Pierre Glffard, then Dupuy de Lome,
tried the first dirigible balloons. Latei
Captains Itenard and Krebs in tbeli
aeroplane, La France, went from Meu-
don to Paris aud back at the same
time tbat Gaston Tlssandler was carrying out bis due experiments. But all
progress was soon stopped by the
weakness of tbe motors compared to
their weight.
Nothing further could be done until
the arrival of tbe explosive motor. In
fact, It was the Improvement iu automobiles which won us the conquest of
the air.
Hands and Feet.
It ls said tbat Disraeli was prouder
of bis small bauds than of all his great
mental accomplishments. This was
presumably because they were badges
of aristocracy lu their evidence that
he had not beeu brought up to labor,
and he worshiped aristocracy. And
small feet of the same character���evidences tbat the possessor did not go
barefoot wben a child. Generations of
carefully shod children or the nobility
developed this characteristic of those
of "gentle blood" as distinguished from
the commonalty. But sucb proofs of
superiority were not meekly endured.
In due time brainy commoners discovered that the "artistic band" was not
small, but long aud slender, and then
came tbe athlete multitude, wbo scorn
small bands and feet as evidences of
effeminacy.
RINGWORM
Stubborn   Case   Healed   by   Zam-Buk
The most troublesome and obstinate of all scalp trouble is Ringworm.

bad that 1 was compelled to have her
huir cut off. I obtained a preparation

but instead of curing, tlie Ringworm
deve'oped into nasty sores matterating
and smelling badly. I saw Zam-Buk
advertised in the newspaper and immediately sent for a box. After several applications I could see a great
improvement, and as I kept up tlie
Zam-Buk treatment daily the disease
was soon checked. The nasty sores
were thoroughly cleaned and healed
and all trace of Ringworm banished
from the child's scalp in a few weeks
after commencing with Zam-Buk. I
cannot recommend Zam-Buk too
higli'y."

A Kansas newspaper tells the following on one cf the young men of
the town.���
A young man who is very particular
about bis washing, recently wrote a
note to his washerwoman and one to
(lis sweetheart, and by 11 strange fatality lie put the wrong address on
?aeli envelope and sent them off. The
washerwoman waa sent the invitation
to take 11 ride tlie next dav, but when
���lie young lady read: "If you tumble up my shirt bosom any more, as
vou did last time, I'll go somewhere
dse," she cried all evening and de-
olared she would never speak to him
again.

Gray Hairs In Wall Street.
"It seemed to me down ln New York
the other day," remarked a Cleveland-
er who had just returned from tbe metropolis, "that one might almost recognize Wall street aud tbe financial
region by tbe number of gray haired
young men you see. I had occasion to
be ln several offices on Wall street the
other day, and I honestly believe more
than half of the young men 1 saw bad
gray hair. I noticed the same thing
along tbe street. It may have beeu
just a coincidence, but I couldn't help
woudering If tbey would bave beeu
gray Just as soon If tbey had beeu at
some other game for the last few
years."

BABY'S OWN TABLETS
A LITTLE^ LIFE SAVER.
Baby's Own Tablets have saved
many a precious little life. There is
no other medicine for children so safe
and sure in its effects. The Tablets
oure stomach and bowel troubles,
teething troubles, destroy worms,
break up colds and prevent deadly-
croup. And you have the guarantee
of a government analyst that this
medicine does *iot contain a particle
of opiate or narcotic. Mrs. J. Lar-
oque, Log Vallev, Sask., says:��� "I
nm a great believer in Baby's Own
Tablets. I bave used tbem on many
occasions and Know of no medicine
equal to them '11 curing the common
ailments of babies and young children." Sold bv all medicine dealers

The  Way  They  Are   Made  From  the
Intestines of Sheep.
Catgut strings, It Is well known, are
made of the intestines of sheep. The
Intestines of the full grown animal ar.
from forty to fifty feet loug.
The raw material from the stockyards ls first thoroughly cleansed of
tat and fleshy fiber by dull knives arranged ou a drum turned by a crank.
The white tough membrane that ls
left Is then handed over to the splitter, who dexterously splits the material Into eveu strands by bringing it
agalust the blade of a safety razor set
upright ln the table before him. The j
strauds are then spun, together and
placed on the drying frames.
An American E violin string requires six strands, the European four.
The strands, at one end fastened to au
upright post, are twisted together
while still damp and pliable by means
of a spinning wheel. Tuken from tbe
drying frames, the strings are cut In
lengths, colled and boxed ln oiled paper for shipment To polish tbe strings
very line emery paper laid on a grooved
iiliiiiiiiiiiini block is used. While the
strings nre still on tbe drying frame
the covered block Is passed over tbe
strings, polishing ns many at oue time
ns tbere nro grooves in tho block. 11
.���an be seen that from the manner ln
whicli tbe strands are twisted the effect of polishing is to weaken the
string.
In tbe essential features tbe process
of making the Que gut strings for surgical uses or the heavy strings three-
elgbtbs of an inch thick sometimes
employed for niach'uery bolting does
not differ from the method employed
In the case of the musical strings except that the latter are bandied wltb
more care.

DARING  PHOTOGRAPHY.
Perilous Feats of the Men Who Manipulate the Cameras.
A man who can stand or sit on tbe
flauge of u steel beam not so wide as
the sole of your shoe and (500 feet
above a roaring granite paved city
street, there coolly to take successful
pictures of tbe top of tbe city far below hlm, must be possessed of three
qualifications and each of the flrst water. He must have judgment, patience
and courage, these three, and, one may
add without slighting the other two,
the greatest of these is courage. Bo
writes H. G. Hunting in the Technical
World Magazine.
The eager eye of the camera goes
everywhere nowadays, and the man
who makes picture getting his business udopts no peaceful, unexciting
pursuit. If he Is under contract to a
great newspaper or magazine he may
be called upou to secure a picture of
anything, from a flashlight in tbe black
depths of a metropolitan sewer to a
portrait of the fairest white slave In a
Turkish harem. Ue may be asked to
"get" a female grizzly nursing her
whelps ln ber mountain lair to Illustrate some naturalist's work at one
end of the year, aud before the other
end bas come be may snap a shutter
on tbo lip of some smoking volcano's
crater.
Wben you see a striking or a startling picture of man or beast in some
extraordinary place or pose, do you
ever stop to think where the photographer was wbo made tbe negative or
how he got there?

"Whnt is it, Lucy?"  I  asked.
"Skull!" she answered.
"Correct." said I, "but what other
other name has it?" expecting some
one to answer "cranium." All were
silent for a while, then a little fellow
who seemed to be in deep study quickly raised his hand, his eyes sparkling
and a confident smile spreoding over

A Cure for Rheumatism.���The intrusion of uric acid into tbe blood vessels
ir, a fruitful cause of rheumatic pains.
This irregularity is owing to a deranged and unhealthy condition of the

healthy action, tliey correct impurities in the blood.
Pepper In Olden Times.
During the middle ages in Europe
pepper was the most esteemed and Important of all tbe spices. Genoa, Venice aud other commercial cities ot central Europe were Indebted to their
traffic ln pepper for a large part of
tbeir wealth. Its Importance as a
means of promoting commercial activity and civilization during the middle
ages can hardly be overrated. Tribute
was levied iu pepper, and donations
were mnde In tbis spice, which was
frequently also used as a medium of
exchange ln place of money. When
the Imperial city of Rome was besieged by Alarlc, the king of the Goths,
in 408 A. D., tbe ransom demanded included 5,000 pounds of gold, 30,000
pounds of silver and 3,000 pounds of
pepper, illustrating the Importance of
this spice at that time.
For  Poetical   Reasons.
"Perchance," called tbe amiable widow, "come here!"

"I am so fond of poetry!" explained
tbe lady lucidly.
"Madam, forgive me, but I fall to
see the applicability."
"Why, Billy man," exclaimed the
merry widow, "1 named It after Byron's dog! Don't you remember where
he says, 'Perchance my dog will
howl?"'

JOHNNY'S  0EBUT.
He Thought He Had Learned His Selection Thoroughly.
A seven-year-old orator made his
debut In front of a large audience the
tither night at a West Side club. His
deluded but loving family wbo had
egged bim ou to this sacrifice were
mostly wltb him In the dressing room,
Iney wanted to be sure that hia bangs
did uot full over his eyes and obstruct
the view of bis mother, father, aunts,
ancles and cousins in reserved seats
directly In front
"Now, Johnny," said his mother, "be
.ure you make a nice bow."
"You bet I will," said Johnny, with
I ewagger.
"And let your bands fail easily by
your side, like this," and his father
.truck an attitude.
"Of course," said Johnny.
"Are you sure you know your piece?"
asked his sister.
"Yep," said Johnny, nnd he recited
the first two lines���
"I wish I had a little dog,
To pat him on the head."
"That's right He'll do splendidly,"
remarked his mother. "You'll go on
ln a minute now, and we must get
Into our seats. Don't you be scared
a bit, Johnny."
"Whoth thcaredT asked Johnny,
Who began to feel a sinking of the
knees, while Ids heart began to rise
until It was in bis mouth, and then
somebody was pushing bim forward,
and he saw a lot of faces, not one of
which he had ever seen before, and
It was lighter than any electric searchlight he bad ever seen. "Speak up
now," said the manager. "Make your
bow and say your piece."
Johnny made bis bow and the audi
ence applauded, but he had difficulty
In finding bis tongue. His hands hung
down as his father had suggested,
making him look like a little wooden
man, and when he forgot and stuffed
them Into bis pockets tbe audience applauded again, The manager took this
opportunity fer a stage whisper:
"Speak up, now," and he began the
first line. Then Johnny said ln a
���ttrange, hoarse voice:
"I wish I had a little pat
To dog hlm on the head."
Roars of laughter. Frantic demonstrations on the part of Johnny's family.   He began again:
"I wish I had a Uttle pat
To head him on the dog."
His father rose ln his seat 'That
added to Johnny's confusion. Again
the brave boy essayed:
���1 wish I had a little dog
To head him on the pat"
Then a weary family took Johnny
by the band and led htm home.���Detroit News Tribune.
To Abolish Dampness
People who live in damp localities
particularly near undrained land, in
France, have discoveied a simple remedy for damp situation. Suceess-
lul experiments have shown that it is
possible materially to improve the atmosphere in such ne'ghborhoods by
the planting of the laurel and the sunflower. The laurel gives off on abundance of ozone, while the Bunflower is
potent in destroying malarial con-
tions. Tiiese two, if planted on the
most restricted scale in a garden or
any ground c'ose to the house, will be
found speedi'y to increase the dryness
and salubrity of the atmosphere.
"Do you believe that mosquitoes
carry malaria?"
"Not the mosquitoes around here,"
answered Fanner Corntosse'. "They
couldn't possibly do it and    be    bo
ealtby."���Washington   Star.
