News and Goislp Uleaned by Asking mnny People many Questions
Tho Review staff amused themselves
during the Easter holidays emulating
thecxatnpleof Isaac Walton.but whether they were out with the wrong kind
of "bait," or whether inoxperience
handicapped their effoits, deponent
sayelh not. Suffice it to say that the
editor still yearns ior a mess of trout.
A number of schoolboys packed tlieir
blankets and a tent to the head 01 the
lake last Friday, and they had a high
old time fishing and hunting.
'' Cap. Foley, one of the earliest prospectors to roam these hills, came down
from Sandon last Silnday. For a man
who has had the mortification of reading his obituary in the papers many
times, he looks exceedingly well.
Chas. Delaney who has been visiting
his parents the past month, left for
Vancouver on Monday to take up a
position there in an electiical engineering works.
We have been given to understand
that the ofiertorieB at the Anglican
Chiiruh on Easter Sunday, were the
largest in the history of St. Stephen's
A severe thnnderstorm broke over
town on Sunday night, aud as it was
accompanied ty a 100 miles an hour
-gale, the lake resembled a miniature
Atlantic in fury. The flotsam and jetsam which bestrew the surface the following; morning told of a fierce night in
the open.
Goo 1 orogresi ls being made with the
construction of tho tie making mill of
the Silverton Lumber & Power Co., Ltd.
G. S. Vanstone is to be seen almost
any day whipping the lake in an endeavor lo lure the gamey trout to his
hooks, and he has been exceedingly
successful since tho season opened.
The other day, a lady of uncertain age
stood watching him for a long time,
wheu suddenly, as if inspired, ahe remarked :
"And are you trying to drown that
poor little fly?"
"Why b'ess you, ma'am," said the
ever smiling George, "that's not a real
fly. Look!" and he laid the artificial
fly in the palm of tbe lady's hand,
"Well, well, we'l," exclaimed the
lady, "I am surprised I"
Baid George: "And you're not the
only one surprised this morning. There's
been an old blue-boottle sniffing around
that fly for an hour and a half, and by
the way in which it suddenly quit love-
making, I guess it's surprised."
A Galician, named J. G iruk, working
with the extra C.P.R. gang at Rosebery,
slashed the muscles of his left arm
rather badly with a crosscut saw last
*' Howard Anderson came down from
the Ruth mine on Friday, to revel in
the glorious sunshine. Mr. Anderson
snys all four seasons prevail on the road
between New Denver and Sandon.
There were large congregations at
both morning and evening services of
the Anglican Church on Good Friday.
In the evening "The Story of the Cross"
was sung.
Still they come.    Letters from the
old country continue to arrive to  Her
bcrt Cue,  Secretary of the Town Improvement Society, asking for information of the district.
The marriage is announced and will
shortly take place of Miss M. Shand,
of Edmonton, and Hugh Campbell, of
Strathcona, ior many years a resident
of New Denver. All will join with us
in wishing happiness to the bride and
groom elect.
A new snowslide came down the early
part of this week.   It was first noticed
by several persons who thought it was
the California slide.   Old timers in the
district say they have no recollection of
tbe slide coming down before as it had
quit many yeara ago, and a large  tract
of lumber had grown there.    The  slide
is situate  between the California and
the Mowith slides, and is on  tlie same
bill as thc former.
Mra. Coulthard, sister of Mrs. Herbert
Thomlinson, will sail from England on
May 1st on the " Impress of Britain."
She is to pay a visit to New Denver to
apend a holiday with her lister.
New potation, tlie size of ben's egge,
were dug in town a week ago in Inlanders' garden.
There is an immediate prospect of
the Argo again being opened up. Jake
Kelson, tho principal owner, is likely to
give a lease to Messrs. Isenor and McDonald, and the opening of this pioper-
ty, which is inside the Sandon city limits, will be watched with more than
passing interest. It has been proved
that large bodies of zinc can be sloped
in the mine, but owing to the present
condition of the market and unfavorable export conditions, the owners are
content to leave it standing and "bide a
wee;" but there is also a lead enrrying
120 ozs. silver whicli tbe proposed leasers
are anxious to exploit, and we believe a
deal will be announced in a  few   days.
Mr. Gifford will conduct public worship
next. Sabbath in the Metliodbt churches
at Silverton and New Denver at 11 a.m.
and 7-30 p.m. His subject will be " The
rati male of the atonement."
There was a large attendance" at the
service in the Methodist Church, Pan-
don, on the evening of Fader Sunday.
Mesdames Towgood, White, and Robinson, and Mr. Douglas Nicholson assisted
in the musical service. Tbe music was
exceptionally beautiful.
Ben Wing has come back. Ben has
been doing a heavy business in "Makush,
Levelstoke, Allohead, and all lound
dere." After all, there's no place like
Benedlim Villa, the new residence of
that jovial and enterprising bnss that
presides over tho Silverton wharf,
is teing rapidly got into shape. The
finishing touches as yet aro not of course
put on, but when they are, Bonedum
Villa may aspire to be lhe beauty spot
and show place of Silverton. Special
attention is being paid to the kitchen
garden, pleasure ground and out offices,
and to crown all, the genial owner is
looking forward to being the happiest
man alive by the end of next week.
Owing to Miss McVicar missing the
boat at Slocan City, at which p'sce she
has been spending Easter with her relatives, the school was closed on Tuesday,
much to the delight of the "kiddies,"
who were all out for another day's holiday. She returned by the boat on
Tuesday evening.

New Denver on Tuesday evening, May
5th, on the subject of "Insects in tlieir
relation to Fruit Growing." He is a
first-class authority on insect pests, and
will be able to give some most useful information. It is to be hoped that there
will be a good attendarce, as this subject
is of interest to everybody.
F. Liebscher,  the Silverton  tailor,

We assure our numerous reader-i that
tbis is the only course we could adopt,

Extract from tbe Nelson Dally News of July llth, 1907.
" O. P. Wigen, Ihecetebrnted strnvvberrj cultiirist known throughout Hie Province, le
in town to-day.    Ilesa*s the season is almost over now, nnd hai been a HucuoiBful one.
Oft* about four acres lit; has shipped berries lu the amount of jl.000.0'1, and his more tu ship
yet.    Ills land ln snawberries Is worth to him, at 10 per cent interest, 13,000.00 an acre."
A Ten-acre farm in the Slocan will give you a better  income with less labor, than
a hundred acres in Ontario or any other Easternprovinces.
If you are interested in fruit growing YOU ought  to communicate with us in
JUSTICE to  YOURSELF.    Our illustrated literature is worthy of a place
in any fruit-grower's library.    Just drop us a line while you think of it - -

Slocan Brass Band
Slocan City brass band made its debut
with great eclat on Monday night, and
a large crowd frittered in from Silverton
and New Denver to attend its inaugural
grand ball. Since the band hns been
formed it hns been licked into shape by
Gilbert R. Northey, and although scarcely a month has passed since the first
pr.ictiee wns held, tbey were able on the
present occasion to discourse music that
wns a delight alike to the pipulace and
ths dancers. The ball vias a terrific
success, there being fifty couples upon a
floor that devotees of Terpsichore went
into raptures over, and never has the
Oddfellows' Hall accommodated such a
crowd as assembled there on Monday
night. Had the hall been twice an
Iaige, it is _afe betting that 75 to 100
couples would have gyrated at once.
Northey's orchestra is a power that
will lake some beating. It played all
the newest dances and all were rendered
in an pei h time.
The bounteous supper left nothing to
be desired. Dainty little pages in
Fauiitleroy costumes flitted hither and
thither wiih trays piled wilh delicious
viands, and the way those mountains of
tatty trifles vanished, spoke volumes
lor keen appetites and Slocan ozone.
The hall was tastefully decorated with
bunting, and upon the wall the emblem
ol ihe I.O.O.F. was arranged in tricolors.
Thc management was perfect, and
when we mention that "Billy" Hicks
was master of ceremonies, those not
privileged to be present will realize
better the perfect concord in the net ts.
Dancing commenced at 10 -u'clock
and continued until nearly 6 o'clock, it
being a tired but very happy crowd that
the str. " Slocan " conveyed to tho head
of the lake an hour later. When next
Slocan Brats Band spreads itself may
we all bo there to participate iu the
accompanying good time.

WB JM3NVl.ll, M
The annual Easier Vestry meeting of
the Anglican church was held on Monday evening last in die IC. of P. hall.
Owing to various reasons tins meeting
was anticipated with much interest.
There waa only a moderate attendance
at the commencement. The early hour
being Bomewhat  accountable for this.
Mr. Eccle* asked for the meeting to
be deferred to enable those people to
attend who could not make it convenient
to be present until later in the evening,
hut ou Mr. Baynes explaining that
they were under agreement to be out
by 8 o'clock, and that these were the
only conditions under which they could
secure the use of the hall, tho meeting
was allowed to proceed.
Ven. Aichdeacon Beer occupied the
chair, supported by Missionary Baynes.
The flrst item on the agenda was the
reading of minutes of last meeting.
These were read and passed.
Missionary Baynes in referring to tbe
financial report said the position was
more favorable now thau a lew months
The total offertories for New Denver
for the past year were t.192.85, aud the
monthly subscriptions $221.50. From
this amount had to be deducted fill.50,
money remitted to missions.
Mr. Baynes said he purposed handing
over $30, thc whole of the Lenten offertories, to the Pan Aglican Congress.
The Archdeacon congratulated the
members of the church on the satisfactory condition of the mission, which
was received wiih great applause.
Missionary Baynes was unanimously
elected delegate to the Synod. *
Mr. H. Thomlinson was elected parish churchwarden and Mr. W. S. Beanies
minister's warden, wiih Messns. Angell
and Lindsay as sidesmen.
As a considerable amount is yet required before a bishop can be elected,
the Archdeacon expressed the hope that
the Pan Anglican Congress would make
up the deficiency.
Towards the close of the meeting two
letters were handed to the Archdeacon,
who after perusing them, said he did
not think it desireable that they should
be read out to the meeting.
As there may have been some misapprehension existing in the minds of
those people present as to the contents
of the letterB, we are given to understand they were in no ways letters impugning the character of Mr. Baynes.
St. Stephen's Church, New Denver.
Easter Festival Services continued next
Sunday: Matins 11; Evensong 7-30.
Percy Johnston returned from a trip
to Arrowhead last Monday.
Norman Morrison has been to Revelstoke and other mam line points during
the holidays. He returned Mouday, in
time ior the big bop at Slocan.
Slides cause heavy damage
to C. P. R. Track.
A mud slide oame down last Sunday
about three-quarter miles this side of
Alamo, canting considerable damage to
the C. P. R. track. It took away about
100 feet of trestle, leaving the rails and
ties suspendend in mid-air. Further up
the track, about half-mile from Three
Forks, a mudsli.de washed about 150
feet of track and road bed into the creek.
The Mowitch snowslide came down
early on Monday morning, causing the
creek to ceaee flowing*- for twenty
The work of re-conslrncting the track
is expected to occupy about thice weeks.
Several big elides have come down
over the K. & S. track. Two bridges
are completely wiped out, and the train
cannot get through.
The Buffalo mine, near Silverlon, is
about to be opened up again. Sam
Watson has received instructions from
the Company to begin as soon as possible the continuation of No. 3 level,
which is now in about 120 feet. This
will be pushed for abiut 860 feet, when
it is expected the lead will be picked
up, and drifting will continue for another 100 feet, at whicli point it is
expected the lead dips at a 45 angle, and
an upraise on tbe lead will be made to
connect with No. 2 level, and thus all
air troubles will be abolished. It is
expected that several big bodies of oro
will be encountered beiore the program
ol development for the seaton is concluded, as a large quantity of ore was
extracted from points vertically above,
and when left it was going down. Iu
No. 3, the point now being worked, 65
tons of $226 ore was shipped in the fall
of 1900 by Westen, McKenzie and Stewart under lease.
Tlie Company are purchasing 600 feet
of air pipe this week.
Eureka Resumes work with
ao Increased Force.
From Snndon comes the good news
that the Eureka ha. re-opened for the
season with an increased working force.
Tho property is now considered the
most promising one of the Sandon
camp, and certain it is tbat it will play
the most important part in the pay-roll
view point. Eighteen months ago our
scribe visited the property under the
kind invitation of lhe management of
the Consolidated and Smelting Co., and
we wero then convinced that a big mine
wnB then in its embryonic stage. With
such a company as the Consolidated behind it we wrote sanguinary of the
property, and our hopes have been fully
justified. We look forward to heavy
shipments in the near future. Thirty-
five men are now on the pay-roll.
Our Fruit Growers' Column.
1. Each grower should provide ahead
of the season for plenty of pickers and
packers to handle his crop.
2. He should have the regulation
crate adopted for Ili3 year, to hold cups
of dimensions 4%x4%x2,?j' inches inside
8. A siuncient crew ol pickers for live
acres should be at least SO pickers, ono
foreman of the field to carry the berries
picked to the outside of the Hold, and
keep check upon the number of cups
picked ; an assistant foreman of the
field should take the berries delivered
at tho edge of the field and deliver to
the packing house. Foreman of the
packing now takes charge of them.
4. Suitable facilities should be provided before the season is on, viz., shed,
packing table, picking carriers, room for
storiug, etc.
5. Never pick strawberries when tbe
dew is on.
9. Berries picked before ten o'clock
in the morning, and after four o'clock
in the evening may be packed immed-
iatelp; but all picked between 11 and
four should be allowed to stand in the
shed till noxt morning betore packing.
Don't forget this. It is most important.
Never pack heated berries.
7. The patch should be picked over
every day.
8. Foreman of .licking���Do not allow
the'pickers to tratn,ile down the vines
or green fruit. Do not allow the green
Iruit to be picked.
9. All berries must be picked with
stems on. Strawberries are at the right
stage to pick.'for shipping when.they
are about half turned to light red in
color. More color will indicate that
they are over-ripo, and should not be
shipped. Do'not pick them green or
they will be unfit for use nnd lack quality. The ideal time to pick over your
patch is the early and lato hours of the
day. Do not allow tbe packers to fill
tbe crates more that half full between
the hours of 10 a.m. mid 4 p.m.
not allow the packers to pack heated
berries. They are better to stand a day
than be packed when heated. In packing make the top of the box a fair
representation ol the contents. Do not
put the small berries in (he bottom and
the large ones on top. " Honesty is the
best policy."
11. Berries should be packed carefully from the bottom to the top of the
cup, then carefully placed in the crate,
The crate should then be put in a cool,
well ventilated place.
13. Always keep your crates clean.
Do not take them into the patch.
13. Each crate must be marked witn
the growers name, P.O. address, variety
size, and grade, Be sure and place
your order for rubber stamps at the office enrly. Tbe Association this year
will supply the grower with lithographed
labels, which he will put upon the end
not covered bp his name, with a paste
made from a formula which will be supplied on request. Always wet the label
in clear water before pasting on the box.
14. Haul all the berries on springs to
station or boat landing, where a convenient shed for sheltering should lie provided. (The manager would here suggest that each community of neighbors
club together and provide a shipping
shed to house all their fruit while waiting for shipment.)
15. In hauling to the shipping shed
a canvas cover should be used to protect the berries from the weather.
16. Berries should bo packed about
}_ of an incli above the top of the cups
in the cratos to be used this year.
To be continued.
Grand Success.
Large Numbers
Assemble at Bosun Hall
on Wednesday.
Tlie Bosun Hall was filled on Wednesday evening with an enthusiastic
audience, on the occasion of the Anglican Church concert. The program was
a long and varied one. Oiving to the
unavoidable absence of Mr. J.J. Atherton
the program underwent a slight alteration, but this in no degree detracted
from the merit of the entertainment.
Judged by the applause whicli greeted
the various items, the audience
thoroughly enjoyed the fare provided
for them.
Mr. C. F. Nelson was encored for hia
song "Is your mother in Molly Malone."
An Octette, "Men of Harlech," by
Messrs. Beames, Hyde, Thomlinson,
Pemberton, Kelly, Jackson, Owens, and
E. Atherton, was well rendered and left
nothing to be desired.
Mrs. Brockman, who possesses a
beautiful contralto voice, sang "Ob, dry
those te:ii*F," but she was heard to
much greater advantage in hor son*,;
"Annie Laurie,"Jn wliich she was superb.
Mr, Jackeon who sang "The song that,
reached my heart," was deservedly encored and reppiinded with "Bonnie Mary
ni Argyle."
Mr. D. Nicholson has achieved great
fame as a violiuist and added further to
his laurels with his violin solos, "Scotch
Airs and ''Reverie" the audience being
greatly enthused,
A pianoforte solo, " Sonato Patbet-
ique," by Mrs. Rankine, and a pianoforte duet. "Romeo and Juliet," by the
Misses McDougald and Macdonald were
the other instrumental items, both ol
which were cleverly performed.
Miss Cuo, received an encore for her
song, "Happy Song." This lady has
a rich soprano voice, but we detected a
slight trace of nervousness in her singing, and when she has overcome this
defect, will achieve many successes iu
the future.
Mr. R. S. Macaulay as "Pat O'Brien"
caueod endless amusement with his
two character songs inlo whicli he introduced the names of many local celebrities.
Mr. IT. Lowe recited "The face on tha
har room floor," and the most notable
able items In the other part of the program were a pong " Out on the deep **
by Mr. Pemberton, who in response to
an encore eang "Tho Diver," a duet.
Larboard Watch" by Mesers. Kelly
and Pemberton, and a quartette " Sweet
and Low," by Messrs. Kelly, Owens,
Hyde, and II. Thomlinson.
The other contributions to a splendid
program were songs by Messrs. Beames,
Kelly, Angell, and Hyde, and a recitation by Mr. A. Pemberton.
At tho conclusion ol the concert
refreshments were provided, and after
all had regaled themselves with the
good things provided, the room was
cleared for dancing, which was indulged
in until early morn.
The members of the Anglican Church
are to be congratulated on having got
together such a splendid array of talent,
and as the proceeds are to be handed
over to Missionary Baynes, that gentleman will be the recipient of a very
substantial cheque.
The Kootenay Fruit Growers Association.
A bull-calf and a yearling heifer, the
property of Mrs. Carey, of Silverton,
died mysteriously this week. Upon examination, it was found they had been
Take notico that Frank Provost, of

Dated this 8th day of April, 1908.
If is generally admitted that Missionary Baynes has done good work in this
camp, and has raised tho [mission to its
present satisfactory position, as there
were but few who attended St. Stephens Chnrch previous to his taking
charge; in fact the services were discontinued for some months before
his arrival. Now he commands large
congregations, well represented by the
young men of this district.

in her heart wns plnnted a germ of

or whatever else she thought might
please her, and always finding n willing messenger in Guy. He wns miserable, and managed when at borne
to make others so around him. The
night ol Muddy bearing her burden
so uncomplainingly almost maddened
him. Hnd she fretted or complained
he could bear it better, he said, but
lie did not see the necessity for her
to lose all her spirit or interest in
everything and everybody. Once when
be hinted as nuicli to Muddy, he had
been awed into silence by the sub
dued expression ol her luce as she
told him in pnrt, whnt it. wns which
helped her to bear and mnde the rough
places so smooth. He hnd seen something like this in Lucy, when paroxysms of pain were rucking her delicate frame, but he could not understand it; he only knew it wns something he could not touch���something
against which his arguments beat
helplessly, and so, with an added respect for Maddy Clyde, he smothered
his impatience, and determining to
help her all he could, rode down to
Honedale every day, instead of twice
a week, as he had done beiore.
Attentions so marked could not fail
to be commented upon; and while
poor, unsuspecting Maddy wns deriving so much comfort from his daily
visits, deeming thnt day very long
which did not bring him to her, the
Honedale gossips, of whom there were
many, were busy with ber affairs,
talking them over at their numerous
tea-drinkings, discussing them in the
streets, and finally at a quilt-^g,
where they met in solemn conclave,
deciding, that, "for a girl like Maddy
Clyde it did not look well to hnve so
much to do with that young Remington, who, everybody knew, was engaged to a somebody in England."
"Yes, and would bave been married long ago, if it wan't for this
foolin' with Mnddy," chimed in Mrs.
Joel Spike, throwing the chalk across
the quilt to her sister, Tripbeny Marvel, who wondered if Maddy thought
he'd  ever have  her.
"Of course he wouldn't. He knew
what he was about. He was not green
enough to marry Grandpa Markham's
daughter; and if she didn't look out,
she'd get herself into a pretty scrape.
It didn't look well, anyhow, for ber
to be putting on airs, ns she had
done ever since the big folks took her
up. and she guessed she wouldn't be
beholden to nobody Ior her larnin'."
All this and much more was discussed, and by the time the patchwork thing was done, there remained
but little to be said either for or
ngainst Guy Remington and Maddy
Clyde which had not been said by
either friend or ioe.
Among the invited guests at that
quilting was the wife of Farmer
Green, Maddy's warmest friend in
Honedale, and the one who did her
best to defend her against the attacks
of those whose remarks she well knew
were caused more by envy than any
personal dislike to Maddy, who used
to be ao much of a pet until her superior advantages separated her in a
measure from tbem. Good Mrs. Green
was sorely tried. Without in the
least blnming* Maddy, she, too, had
heen troubled at the frequency of
Guy's visits to the cottage. It was
not friendship alone which took him
there, she was sure; and knowing
that he was engaged, she feared for
Maddy's happiness at first, and afterward, when people began to talk, she
feared for her good name. Something
must be done, and though she dreaded it greatly, she was the one to do
it. Accordingly, next dny she stnrt-
ed for the cottage, which Guy had
just left, and this, in her opinion,
accounted for the bright color in Maddy's cheeks nnd the sparkle in her
eye. Guy had been there, bringing
and leaving u world of sunshine, but.
alas! his chnnoes for coining ever
again as he hnd done were fearfully
smnll, wben, at the close nf Mrs
Green's well-meant visit, Mnddy lay
on her bed, her white, frightened face
buried in the pillows, nnd herself
hnlf wishing she hnd died before the
last hour hnd come, with the terrible
awakening it hnd brought! awakening
to the fnct Hint of nil living beings,
Guy Remington via? the one she loved
the best���the one without whose presence it seemed to her she could not
live, but without which she now knew
she must.
With the best of intentions Mrs.
Green hnd made a bungle of the whole
nffnir. but hnd succeeded in giving
Maddy n general impression thnt folks
were tnlkiug awfully ubout Guy's
coming there, nnd doing for her so
much like nn ncoepted lover, when
everybody knew he was engaged, and
wouldn't be likely to marry a poor
girl if he wan't; that unless she wanted to be ruined teetotally, and lose
all her friends, she must contrive to
stop his visits, and not see him so
"Yes, I'd do anything, only please
lenve me now," Maddy gasped, her
face as white as ashes and her eyes
fixed pleadingly upon Mrs. Green,
who, having been young herself, guessed the truth, and. as she arose to go,
laid her motherly hand on Maddy'a
head, saying kindly:
"Poor child, it'? bnrd to bear now,
but you'll pet over it in time."
"Get over it." Mnddy moaned, as
she shut nnd bolted the door after
Mrs. Green, nnd then threw herself
upon the bed, "I never shall till I
die."   .
She almost felt thnt she was dying
then, se desnlnte and so dreary the
future looked to her. Wbat was life
worth without Guy, and why had she
been thrown so much in his way;
why permitted to love him as she
knew she did, il she must lose him
now? Mnddy could not cry; there was
a tightness about her eyes, and a
keen, cutting pnin about her heart
as she tried to piny for Rtrength to
do what wns right���strength to oast
Guy Remington from her heart, where
it was a sin for him to be; and then
she asked to be forgiven for tbe wrong

of cruel  waitine. would kill me."
Sweet Lucy, there was in her henrt
a fnint stirring of fenr lest Mnddy
Clyde might be n shadow in her pathway, else she hnd never written that
to her. But Lucy's enuse wns snfe
in Mnddy's hnnds. nlthough for a few
brief moments Mnddy nbnndoned herself fo the bliss nf fnncying whnt it
would be to be Inved by Guy Remington, even ns she loved him. And ns
she thought tbere crept into ber heart
the certninty thnt in some degree he
did love her; thnt his friendship wns
more thnn n mere liking for the girl
to whom he bnd been so kind. In
Lucy's nbsence she wns essentinl to
his hnpninesH, nnd thnt wns why he
sought her society so much. Remembering everythine thnt hnd passed,
but more pnrticnlnrly the incidents
of thnt memornhle nieht ride to Honedale with nil thnt. hnd followed since,
she could not doubt it. nnd softly
to herself she whispered, "He loves
me, be loves me," while little throbs
of joy bent nil over her henrt; but
only for nn instant, nnd then the
note of joy wns ohnnged to sorrow ns
she thought how she must henceforth
seek to kill thnt love, both for her
own snke nnd Lucy's. Guy must not
come there any more. She could not
bear it now. even if tbe neighbors hnd
never meddled with her. She could
not see him as she bnd done, nnd not
betray her renl feelings toward him.
H3 had been there that dny; he would
come again to-morrow. She could see
him now j-nst ns he would look coming
up the walk, easy and self-possessed,
confident, of his reception, his handsome fnce beaming nil over with kind

would be the dnvs when Guy no longer cnme. But, the victory wns gnined
nt last, and strength imparted for the
tnsk she hnd to do.
Going to the tnble she opened her
portfolio, the gift of Guy, and with
her gold pen, nlso his gift, wrote to
him whnt the neighbors were snying
nnd thnt he must come there no more;
nt least only once in n pieat while
lieenuse if be did, she could not see
him. Then, when this wns written.
she went down to Uncle Joseph, beginning to cnll for her. nnd snt by

which held hers so firmly relnx its
hold? Never, it seemed to Maddy
who sat and sang, while the night-bird
on a distant tree, awakened by the
low song, uttered a responsive note,
nnd the hours crept on to midnight.
Human nature could endure no more,
and when the crazy man said to her,
"Now sing of Him who died* on Calvary," Maddy's answer was a gasping cry as she fell fainting on the
"It was only a nervous headache,"
she said to the irightened Flora, who
came at Uncle Joseph's cnll, and
helped her young mistress up to bed.
"She would be better in the morning,
and she would rnther be alone."
So Flora Ielt her there, but went
often to her door, until nssured by
the low breathing sound thnt Maddy
was sleeping nt last. It was a heavy
sleep, and when Mnddy awakened
from it the pnin in her temples wns
there still; she could not rise, apd
half glad that she could not, inasmuch as her illness would be a reason
why Bhe could not see Guy if he
came. ,
"I can't see him, Flora," Maddy
said, when the latter cnme up with
the messnge thnt Mr. Remington was
there with his bnggy, and asked if a
little ride would not do her good. "I
enn't see him, but give him this,"
and Bhe placed in Flora's hand the
note, baptized witb so many tears and
prayers, and Ihe contents of which
made Guv furious���not at her, but
at the neighbors, the inquisitive, envious, meddlesome neighbors, who
had dared to tnlk ol him, or to breathe
a auspicious word against Maddy
Clyde. He would see; he would make
them sorry for it; tbey should take
back every word; nnd they should
beg Mnddy's forgiveness for the pain
they had caused.
All this, nnd much more, Guy
thought, us with Maddy's note in his
hnnd he walked up nnd down the
sitting-room, raging lik*5 a young lion,
and threatening ven.eance upon
everybody. This Was not the first intimation Guy hnd received of the people's gossip, for only that morning
Mrs. Noah had hinted that his courBe
was not at all calculated to do Maddy
any good, while Agnes had repeated
to him Borne things which she hnd
heard touching the frequency of bis
visits to Honednle; but these were
nothing to the calmly worded messnge which banished him effectually
from Maddy's presence. He knew
Maddy, and he knew she meant what
she wrote, but bo could not have it
so. He must see her; he would see
her; and so Ior the next half-hour
Flora was the bearer of written messages to and from Maddy's room;
messages of earnest entreaty on the
one band, and of firm denial on the
other.   At last Maddy wrote:
"If you care for me in the least,
or Ior my respect, leave me, and do
not come agnin until I send for you.
I am not insensible to your kindness.
I feel it all; but tbe world is nearer
right than you suppose. It does not
look well for you to come here so
much, and I prefer that you should
not. Justice to Lucy requires tbat
you stay nwny."
That ended it. That roused up
Guy's pride, and writing back:
"You shall be obeyed. Good-by,"
he sprang into his buggy, and Maddy,
listening, witb head and heart throbbing alike, heard him aa he drove
furiously  awsti:.
TnosP'Wer.lMie, dreary days wh*_**
followed., and but for her grandlalli
er's increasing teeblenes. Maddy
would almost have died. Anxiety foi
him, however, kept her from dwelling too much upon herself, but the
excitement and the care wore upon
ber sadlv, robbing her eye of its luster and ' her cheek of its remaining
bloom, making even Mrs. Noah cry
when she came one day with Jessie-
to see how tbey were getting on. She
had heard from Guy of his banishment, and now that he stayed awny,
she was ready to step in; so she came,
laden with sympathy ond more substantial comiorts from the Aikenside
Maddy was glad to see her, nnd for
a time cried softly on her bosom,
while Mrs. Noah's tears kept company with bers. Not a word wns
said of Guy, except when Jessie told
her he was in Boston, and it was
stupid  at home  without him.
With more thnn her ordinary discretion. Flora-kept to herself what bad
passed when Guy wns Inst there, so
Mrs. Nonh knew nothing except whnt
he hod told her, and whnt she rend
in Maddy's white suffering fnce. This
last was enough tn excite all her
pitv, and she treated tbe young girl
with the most motherly kindness,
staying all night, nnd herself taking
care of grandpa, who was now too ill
to Bit up. There seemed to be no disease preying upon him, nothing snve
old age, and the loss of one who for
more thnn forty yenrs hnd shared nil
his jov and sorrow. He could not
live without her, nnd one night, three
weeks nfter Guy's dismissal, he snid
to Mnddy, ns she wns nbout to leave
"Sit with me, dnrliug, for a little
while, if you nre not too tired. Your
grandmother seems nenr me to-night,
and so does Alice, your mother. Maybe I'll be with them before another
day. 1 hope I mny ii God is willing,
and there's much I would say to you."
He was very pnle, and tbe grent
sweat drops stood on his forehead and
under his white hair, but Maddy wiped tbem away and listened with a
breaking heart while the aged disciple almost home told her of the
peace, the joy, that Bhone around his
pathway to tiie tomb, nnd of the everlasting arm bearing him bo gently
over Jordan. Then he talked of herself, blessing her for all she had been
to him, telling her how happy she
had made his life since she came
home to stay, and how for a time he
had ached so with fear lest she should
choose to go back and leave him to a
stranger. "But" my darling stayed
with her old grandpa. She'll never
be sorry for it, never. I've tried you
sometimes, I know, for old folks ain't
like young; but I'm sorry, Maddy,
and you'll forget it when I'm gone,
darling Mnddy, precious child"; and
the trembling band rested caressingly on her bowed bend as grandpa
went on to speak of his affairs, bis
little property which wns bers nfter
the mortgage to Mr. Guy wns paid.
"I've kept up thp interest," he Baid,
"but I could never net him to take
any of the principal I don't know
why he is so good to me. Tell him,
Maddy, how I thanked and blessed
him just beiore 1 died; tell him how

the dead tell no secrets, nnd I shnll
soon be dead. Tell me, then, what it
is between you two. Does my girl
love Mr. Guy?"
"Oh, grandpa! grnndpa!" Mnddy
moaned, laying her hend beside his
own on the pillow.
It would be a relief to tnlk witb
someone of thnt terrible pnin, which
grew worse every dny; of that intense
longing just for one sight of the he-
loved one; of Guy, still absent from
Aikenside, wandering nobody knew
where; nnd so Mnddy told the whole
story, while the dying mnn listened
to her, nnd smoothing her silken hair,
tried to comfort her.
"The worst is not over yet," he
snid. "Guy will ofler to make you
his wife, sacrificing Lucy for you,
and if he does, whnt will you do?"
Maddy's heart leaped up into her
throat, and for n moment prevented
her from answering, for the thought
of Guy's really offering to make her
his wife, to shield her from evil, to
enfold her in his tender love, made
her giddy with joy. But it could not
be; she answered through her tears:
"I shall tell him no."
"God bless my Maddy! Sbe will tell
him no for Lucy's soke, nnd God will
bring it right at last," the old man
whispered, his voice growing very
fnint and tremulous. "She will tell
him no," he kept repeating, until,
rousing up to greater consciousness,
he spoke of Uncle Joseph, nnd asked
whnt Maddy would do with Mm:
would she send him bnck to the asylum, or enre for him there? "He will
be happier here," he snid, "but it is
nsking too much of a young girl like
you.    He may live for years."
"I do not know, grnndpa. I hope
I mny do right. I think I shnll keep
Uncle Joseph with me," Mnddy replied, a shudder creeping over her
as she thought of living out all her
youth nnd possibly middle age with
a lunatic.
But her grandfather's whispered
blessings brought comfort with them,
and a calm quiet fell upon her as
she sat there listening to the words
of prayer, nnd catching now and then
her own nnme nnd that of Guy's.
"I nm drowsy, Mnddy. Watch
while I sleep. Perhaps I'll never wake
ngain," grnndpa snid, and clasping
Maddy's hands he fell away to sleep,
while Maddy kept her watch beside

sleep, from which she was aroused
by a clammy hnnd pressing on her

Its Early History ��� Story Throbbing
With Romance and Tragedy���Orig*
inally Built For French Prisoners
of War���Attempts to Escape-
Hardened Criminals Show Many
Kindly Traits���Fond of Animals.
Many a romantic story has been
written round Dartmoor Prison, but
it bas remained for Mr. Basil Thompson to write an authentic history of
the famous convict establishment. -It
was in 1850 that the lirst batch of
convicts was established in the cold
and gloomy spot which 80 years or so
earlier had been a desolate peat bog,
but the true story of Dartmoor Prison,
a story throbbing with romance and
comedy and tragedy, began in 1809,
when the first draft of 2,500 French
prisoners of war were marched up
from Plymouth to the stronghold specially erected Ior their sale custody.
Mr. Basil Thompson, who bus just
given up tbe position oi governor
there, gives us a scries of vivid pen-
pictures of this the most famous penal
settlement in England. When used as
a war prison it was an overcrowded
| city without women; with its own
laws, its schools, manufactures and
arts, its workshops where coin could
be counterfeited and Bank of Kngland
notes forged. "On this tiny stage in
a short hundred years tho play has
been an object-lesson of tbe distortion
ot human nature wrought by war and
by crime." In the French quarter
of the prison a mere jest, a word spoken sharply, was followed by a challenge and a duel fought with all the
customary punctilio. "Many duellists
received dangerous wounds; some
were even killed outright, and it was
these deaths, as well as the suicides,
that led to the protest of the Plymouth coroner that the inquests in a
single year in the war prison hnd exceeded the combined inquisitions foi
"the previous 14 years."
The   First   Escapes.
"The first escape from the prison
took place five days after the first
draft arrived. Sevegran, a naval surgeon, and Auvray, a naval officer,
having observed that a guard of 50
men marched into the prison every
evening to assist in getting the prisoners into their respective halls il
required, made themselves glengarrie3
and overcoats and strips of tin looking like bayonets at a distance, and
fell in at the rear as the detachment
marched out. Favored by the rain
which was falling heavily at the time
they passed all the gates unquestioned," and got away. Again, "on a
dark night early in 1812 three prisoners escaped with the connivance of
a private in tlie Roscommon Militia
named Lynch. They had agreed to
pay the bribe in Bank of England
notes on the wall, but when the
amount came tbey placed in bis
hands counterfeit notes forged by a
man who carried on the trade of a
forger of notes��in No. 5 Prison. Not
suspecting the cheat practiced on
him. Lynch tried to pasB the notes,
and was arrested for uttering the forgeries. Rather than divulge the manner in which he cnme into possession of the counterfeits he chose to
take his trial, and was convicted and
Over-Fed Prisoners.
In the early days of its history ns
an English convict prison, scandal
was caused by the prisoners being
overfed. "The men bnd white bread
instead of brown, and the quantity
allowed was far more than the men
could eat. "The moor children used
to come daily to the prison with baskets to collect the best of the fooi. rejected by the convicts, and many of
the moor families subsisted on this,
leaving more than enough to feed
the pigs thnt hnd their sties inside
the boundary wall. Convicts in the
fourth stage were even allowed beer
on Sundays. Discipline was very lax.
Generally convicts are kind to animals, and I ennnot recall a single
instance of cruelty. The care of animals on a farm seems to bring with
it a sense of responsibility and self-
respect quite out of proportion with
the effect that such duties have on
free men.
The Prison Shepherd.
"The convict will devote himself
heart and soul to the nursing and
grooming of an animal for the show
ring, and will swell with pride when
he learns that his charge baa carried
off first prize. Much of the success
of the present flock of sheep is due
to the care with which an old shepherd has nursed tbem through four
years of penal servitude. As the day
approached for one of his occasional
absences from prison he would say
to the warder regretfully, "I hope, sir,
that they will look after this ewe till
I come back; I shall not be long
away.' This did not mean that he
preferred prison to freedom, but that,
owing to his foibles, he was speaking
of the probability of the case. He
was the only English shepherd I know
whose Bheep followed him in Oriental
fashion, and some times when a lamb
had broken away and refused to be
driven by tbe dogs, I have seen him
come down from the farm and bring
it in by calling it by name."
The Burial Ground.
One of the saddest spots in modern
Dartmoor is the burial ground. "The
first burial of a convict in the churchyard was on May 31, 1851, and thereafter a portion of the ground on the
south side of the churchyard was set
aside for convicts. Until the year
1902 their graves were not marked unless their relations chose to put up a
headstone, and in only one case was
this done. Since 1902, however, small
granite headstones have been erected
by the prison commissioners, bearing
the initials of the convict buried there
and tbe date. The solitary tombstone
eracted by tbe friends of tbe dead is
suggestive enough, bearing as it does
tbe simple initials 'A. L. M.' and the
words 'Jesus Mercy.'"
A   Prominent  Canadian   Gives   His  Experience
With the World-Famous Remedy
For Catarrh.
Chronic Catarrh Always Begins With
An Ordinary Cold
So  Says   Dr.   Hartman,  the   Greatest
Living Authority on Catarrhal     Diseases.
The first effect of a cold is a thickening of the mucous membranes of
the nose and throat.
This gives rise to a discharge, or at
least a stuffiness of the nasal passages.
Sometimes fever accompanies the
first attack, also a feeling of languor,
dullness  and aching  of  the  bones.
If no attention is paid to it, the
mucous congestion is liable to spread
down into the larynx, producing
hoarseness, and into the bronchial
tubes,  producing  a  cough.
Even when this occurs, many people pay no attention to it.
Under such circumstances, the congestion is liable to become chronic,
producing a condition of the mucous
membranes known as catarrh. Catarrh
lasts an indefinite time.

"I write to tell you that I am perfectly well. I took only three bottles
of your Peruna according to your advice and the directions in your book
and it restored my health."
Mr. Matthew O'Hare, 145 William

"About four years ago I consulted
a physician to get relief from a cold
wh-ch stopped up my head and settled on my lungs.   He gave me medi-

no good.

is an influential resident in Scotstown
and widely known.
He writes concerning Peruna. Read
bis letter below;
"I had several attacks of colds
Irom time to time and finally a severe attack developed into catarrh.
"I was advised to use your celebrated catarrh remedy, and after
taking three bottles I find myself
completely cured, and I no longer
suffer from catarrh or colds.
" I can cheerfully recommend
Peruna for colds  and  catarrh."
If Peruna had no other medicinal
value than the promptness with

would be well worth while for any
family to keep it in the house constantly.

make bright, smiling, happy little
ones. Mrs. John Young, Auburn,

Thrift Taught Early.
"One of the surest ways," writes
Laura Brnddock In House nnd Home,
"to inculcate sincere economy in children is to start them early lu home
work for which they are paid and then
encourage the saving of the earnings.
This is done In Germany and France
with success and Is why so few German or French children of the middle
classes are Idle or penniless. The notion that a child should work altogether without recompense has been
done nway with, and these two nations
are therefore Just that much more In
dustt'ioUH and prosperous. Pay the
child lor legitimate labor and make It
a coworker with the parents In building for rainy days. Let It have Its Innocent pleasures nnd pay for them oul

spend a lillle less than It earns nnd to
always have to leeward a balance."

The Work of the Mounted Police of
Canada In the Northwest.
The Northwest policeman's first duty
la to die If that should be necessary.
He Is not allowed to shoot a desperado, go up, sit on his carcass, roll a
cigarette and then read the warrant
He must not shoot. At all events he
must not shoot flrst, which Is often
fatal, for If there is a time when delay
is dangerous It Is when you are covering an outlaw, writes Cy Warman in
the Sunday Magazine.
Numbers of the force have been
known to ride or walk into the very
mouth of a cocked .45 Colt and never
flinch. In about ninety-eight cases out
of every hundred tbe man behind the
gun weakened. In the other two cases
he extended his lease of life, but made
his goiug doubly sure. When a niouut-
ed policeman falls, tbe open space he
leaves is Immediately closed, for back
of him stands the Dominion government and back of that the British empire. So the desperado who thinks he
can kill aud get away has a baid time.
If the police chase bim out of the Dominion back to tbe Islands, he Is likely
to fetch up at Scotland Yard. If his
native village lies south of the forty-
ntnth, the Plnkertons take up his trail,
aud when all these forces are after a

Mr. Chas. Noble, of 375 Colonial
Avenue, Montreal, the assistunt chief
operator of tlie G.N.W. Telegraph Co.,
and several of his family have been
cured of eczema by Zam-Buk, the
great herbal balm. He states the
facts as follows: "The disease started in the back of my hands in tbe
form of small sores and eruptions.
These were very irritating and when
rubbed and scratched turned into
very painful sores. I tried waters,
hrtVons and salves, but the disease
cont;nued to spread and so I consulted a doctor. He treated me for a
time but still the disease spread and
I got no relief. Then.to my alarm
the eczema spread to several of the
children. The pain and irritation in
all our cases was very great, and we
were very much disheartened as all we
tried proved unavailing. Zam-Buk
was recommended and I obtained a
supply. I tried it first on a small
patch of the eczema and this showed
so much improvement that I was convinced Zam-Buk would do good if
persevered with, and therefore obtained a supplv. Each application greatly ie'ieved*the itching, pain and soreness, and it was no* long before the
eruptions and sores dried up and disappeared. In n few weeks from commencing with Zam-Buk every spot
was removed."
"The children who had also taken
this disease were treated in the some
way and have each been cured. Unlike all other preparations used. Zam-
Buk seemed to search to the roots of
the evil and it was really surprising
how quickly the sores were healed.
In my case and that of mv children
the cure was most effectual and permanent as it is now some months since
we were cured, and there has been no
sign of any eruptions or sores return'ne." ,   , __    ,

The Functions of Those of Cat:., Lions
and Jaguars.
A cat never actually wags Its tall.
Why should it-wheu It can pur? But
nevertheless It seems to serve the same
purpose iu permitting a temporary ex-
peudlture of excess nervous energy
when the animal is under greut strain
For Instance, when carefully stalkiug
a bird or a mau, as iu the case of a
kltteu or a llou, the tip of the tall is
never still for a moment���ever curling
and uncurling. We may compare this
to the ni'i*vont_ tupping of the foot or
fingers iu a mau. When an ungry llou
is roaring his loudest, his tail will frequently lash from side to side, giving
rise among the ancients to tbe belief
that he scourged bis body with a hook
or thorn which grew from the end of
the tail.
Wheu a jaguar walks along a slender bough or a house cat perambulates
the top of a board fence, we perceive
another Important function of the tail,
that of nn aid iu balancing. As a tight
rope performer sways his pole, so the
feline shifts Its tall to preserve the
center of gravity.

form of crime continued sporadically
until within recent years. Tbe most
famous of Inter rangers were the Kelly brothers. After many daring crimes
and hairbreadth escapes the Kellys
actually held up the entire village of
Jerilderle, N. S. W., which had a population of 200. Ned Kelly looted the
bank of $10,000, while his three pals
held the meu of the village cooped up

story, which has been a joy for many
a long day among musicians, which
tells how a celebrated conductor, admired and beloved by every one who
knows him, accused his wife In broken
English of couduct the reverse of admirable, to put it mildly. He was refusing an Invitation to an afternoon
party for her on tbe plea of her delicate health, but he evidently got a little mixed during bis explanations, for
he made tbe following astounding
statement, which was news Indeed to
the world ln general: "My wife lies ln
the afternoon. If she does not lie,
then she swindles!"

Not long ago King Edward was visiting a country house near the scene
of one of Cromwell's historic battles.
Strolling out one day by himself, be
met the village blacksmith returning
from  a shoeing expedition.
"I say, my good fellow," said His
Majesty, genially, "I understand that
there was a big battle fought somewhere about here."
'Well-ei," stammered the blacksmith, recognizing th king, "I did

A Bad Looking; 1,rural Case That W����
Saved by Ftnnkneu,
The lawyer whose honesty is proved
bas the confidence of the Judge and
Jury. A story of Abraham Lincoln ls
an illustration. He was appointed to
defend one charged with murder. The
crime was a brutal one, the evidence
entirely circumstantial, the accused a
stranger. Keeling was high and against
the friendless defendant. Ou tho trial
Lincoln drew from the witnesses full
statements of what they saw and
knew. There was no effort to confuse,
no attempt to place before the jury
the facts other than they were. In the
argument, after calling attention to the
fact that there was uo direct testimony, Lincoln reviewed the circumstances and, after conceding that this
and that seemed to point to defendant's guilt, closed by saying that he
had reflected much on the case, and,
while It seemed probable that defendant was guilty, be was not sure and,
looking the jury straight In the face,
said, "Are you?" The defendant was
acquitted, and afterward the real criminal was detected and punished. Hew
different would have been the conduct
of many lawyers! Some would have
striven to lead the judge Into technical
errors with a view to an appeal to a
higher court. Others would have become hoarse ln denunciation of witnesses, decrying the lack of positive
testimony and tho marvelous virtue of
a reasonable doubt The Blmple,
straightforward way of Lincoln, backed by tbe confidence of the jury, won.

On the travels of a monkey from
Genoa to Heidelberg an amusing farce
might be written. A German gentleman brought from southwest Africa a
tiny monkey weighing barely a couple
of pounds. From Tanga to Genoa all
went well with the lllllputlan animal.
It was a favorite with every one and
traveled free until Genoa was reached,
when Its troubles began.
Brought under the notice of the Genoese custom house authorities, It was
promptly deprived of Its Identity. It
was no longer an animal; It became a
bird, and as a bird, on which 28 cents
was charged, It was conveyed to the
Bwlss frontier, where at a stroke of the
custom house ofllcer's wand It was
transformed Into a cat at the Increased
assessment of $1.56 and borne by train
to Zurich.
On Its arrlyal there It ceased as a
cat to exist and became a mere package, an Item of luggage that was conveyed to Constance for the nominal
sum of 18 cents.
Still as luggage, though metamorphosed from a package Into a hand
bag, It went on Its way to Stuttgart,
where a great honor awaited It. It
was on payment of $2.04 exalted Into
a dog, and It was as a dog that It ended Ita Journey at the university town
