An accident occurred at the Eureka
mine, Sandon, on Tuesday, in wliich
two men were injured. John Bakke,
foreman at the mine and Ed. McPhilips
were encaged in tarring the ti am cable
situated about three towers above Sun-
don, when the bucket in which both
men were at the time, overbalanced,
throwing (he occupants to tlio ground
a distance of thirty feet, Bakke being
tbo most unfortunate of the two, sustaining a broken collar-bone and injuries
lo both ligj, while Philips escaped with
nothing more serious than a seven*
shaking and bruises in several parts of
his body.
Fortunately at the spot where the accident happened there was a thick
growth of brush and both men falling
inlo this oscipod more serious injury.
Tliey were at once conveyed to the
Sandon ho-pitul and are both now* reported to bj res'.ing cotnfol tahly.

We think we owe our readers an explanation this week to account for the
shortcomings of tills issue.
Doing lured by the reports of the success of various fishing parlies and the
persuasions of a couple of enthusiasts,
who were lnnd in their praises of a certain place as one where big catches weie

chair and wended our way on Monday
laH���after providing ourselves with the
necessary tackle and outfit for cam ping���
ih quest of the two-pounders which we
weie assured would be ours,
It is only our modesty und a reputation for always speaking the truth which
prevents us from stating the number of
our catch. Suffice it lo say that owing
lo one of tlie party being moved to compassion at our disconsolate appearance,
we were able to inarch home in triumph
on Wednesday evening to receive the
congratulations of thc family and their
praises oi our prowess with the rod and

Spokane Interstate Fair.
A horse race between pacers without
a driver is one of the novel features
planned for the race meet at the Spokane Fair next fall. Manager Robt.
II. Cosgrove is in receipt of applications
from three owners of pacers, risking
him to put up a purse .for a guideless
horse race.
It has been decided lo put on this
interesting race if the owners will accept the conditions. Manager Cosgrove
has written each owner to see if tliey
are willing to enter and liai received a
favorable reply from F. C. Erwin, of
Hillsborough. Oregon, who owns ono of
the horses.
The race will be a harness event;-the
horses stinting as usual with the exception of rnuning thc course without guidance. If tlio other two owners agree,
lliis race will lie made one of tr.e big
features of lhe six davs' race meet.

The outcry against compulsory vaccination of school children lias induced
the Piovincial Hoard of Health to issue
Instructions to boards of school trustees
that the statutory enactment need not
be enforced in the case of parents who
have ConscientoUS objections to tlieir
offspring being treated with vaccine.
It does not follow that the board of
health is abandoning the attempt to en-
fo.ee vaccination apon onr children,
even th mgh n loop hole is allowed for
escape by objecting on scruples of conscience.
It is not clear if the teacher is given
carle blanche, or if a higher authority
Will discriminate between genuine objections of conscience anl a direct attempt to evade the ac1*, As a matter of
fact tint scheme was tried in England,
the only difference being that all objectors mado their nppc.il in a court of law
under oath. Nine-tenths of civizlied
mankind abhors Ihe sickening* fad of
puncturing healthy children with calf
lymph, and all that is apparently
necessary to evade it is to write a statement to the teacher to tho effect that
you believe Ihat the remedy is as harmful as the disease.

As be spoke the door whicli faced

The torches shed a strong yellow

which should bind them forever together. As they turned awny again,

The   average  citizen,   It   Is  safe  to

bearing upon this matter.   The govern

���70,000  men.    The  present strength  Is
57,000.    Of the 'heoretical  70,000 sol
diers the fifteen regiments of cavalry,
Which   never  lack   their   full  comple
ment,   comprise   nearly   11,000 otlleert
and men. the six regiments of field ar
tillery D.500, the coast artillery  corps
close upon 20.000, tlie thirty regiments
of infantry 27.000, the engineers 2,000.
and tne remainder consist of the staff
corps, Indian scouts und a small linm
ber*>of native soldiers  in   I'orto  Rico
snd the  Philippines.    The total  num
ber of com missioned  officers amounts

Steel springs were unknown when the

The elaborate carvings cost more
than the carriage proper, the coach
builder's bill having been less than
���$0,000, while that of the carver was
more than $10,000. Something of the
character of thc ornamentation may be
guessed from the fact that the artist

Show That Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills are Needed.
Anaemia is written on the features
of ninety women and girls out of
every hundred. Unniistakeiihie are
the signs of "too little blood."
The weaker sex is assailed nt all
ages by the evils resulting from
bloodlessness, from the girl who is
weuk and languid, with dull eyes,
pnle, pinched cheeks, fitful appetite,
and palpitating henrt, to the woman
who feels never well, witli gnawing
pains in tlie buck, aching limbs and
nervous  headaches.
Br. Williams' Pink Pills are specially valuable to women of all ngei,
for they possess the power of making
in abundance tlie rich, red blood
without which no woman can have
perfect health. They fill tlie starved
veins witli new blood so that enfeebled bodies nre strengthened,
weak, nervous systems nre fortified
and  robust health  restored.

An Ancient Joke of Which There Ar��
Many   Modern Versions.
Tb_ following tale was translated
from a very old Chinese hook for Collier's Weekly:
A certuin inngistrate upon opening
Ills court observed one of his llctors
whose fine wns covered with wounds
nnd asked hhn what was the mutter.
Replied the lictor, "Yesterday evening
I was reclining and enjoying the fresh
air under my grape arbor, which was
suddenly upset hy a gust of wind and
fell on me anil caused these injuries."
Hut the judge was skeptical and
suld: "That is too thin. It Is easy to
see that the murks on your fnce ure
from scratches from nails. It must lie
that you have had a row wltb your
wife and got a clawing from her. Is
ibis not so?"
The lictor crimsoned all over and replied, "Your honor has truly guessed
Then said the judge: "Why is your
wife so fierce ns this? Wait till I summon her and give her a beating and
vou your revenge."
wiille be was yet speaking the Judge's
own wife suddenly cnme out from the
bouse nnd fiercely said, "Who ls this
you nre going to beat?1

"Making Up" ts a Very Ancient Feminine Art.
"Making up," ns applied to tbe appearance, Is by uo means as modern
an art as many people Imagine.
In the days of Roman supremacy
the women tinted their eyebrows with
black in emulation of "ox eyed Venus."
They painted their faces, sprinkled
themselves with perfume nnd even
wore false hair or tinted their own
locks ln accordance with tbe prevailing fashion.
The Creek ladles of the same period
employed maids who rubbed out their
mistress' wrinkles, "decorated" her
face with red nnd white pnlnl nnd
darkened her eyebrows. It was then
nlso the fashion to coat the face with
white of egg nud goose grease to protect it from the sun and wind. It Is
even snid that they bad a recipe for
turning blue eyes to black.
These fashions nil had their origin
In Italy, where In later years the notorious Lucrezlu Borgia is said to huvt
dyed her hair diDerent colors, according lo ber fuuey of tbe moment.
In England iu tlie eighteenth century many women, among them I.ndy
Coventry, died from tbe effects ot
rouge. So In nil ages "beauty nt all
costs" was tbe motto of "smart" ladies.
Tennyson's Terror.
There nre many stories of Tennyson
In the Duke of Argyll's book, "Fas-
sages From the rust," and oue of tbe
most characteristic relates to the time
when tbe marriage of his grace, then
the Marquis of Lome, and Princess
Louise wns in the air. One day Tennyson bad a number of guests at luncheon, among whom was the Marquis of
Lome. In the course of talk tbe marquis told Tennyson, then poet laureate,
that the queen liked his new volume.
"I nm glad to hear it," Tennyson
said in his sonorous, slow, musical
bass voice. "I bnve given a good account of her in that volume, but tbe
newspapers don't like my rhymes���sny
they are bnd. I live In terror," he continued, "of nny of the queen's family
marryir.g nnd of beariug from her that
she hopes I will write something. I
have no news of that kind yet, but I
live In terror of it"

When Jones got home the other night

scold his wife for not having sense
enough to go down to the cellar aud
hammer up the supply pipe to prevent
the water from escaping. Then he
went downstairs nnd was soon heard
hammering vigorously. After some
minutes' strenuous work, giving one
last mighty blow, he asked, "How Is It

There are now subscriptions announced to the extent of about $600,-
000 for the great Tercentenary celebration at Quebec, and nearly a million
dollars  will be forthcoming for it.
From an historical point of view '���',
will be the greatest demonstration
this continent has witnessed. From a
spectacular stanctpoint it will be one
of tlie most dazzling combinations of
picturesque events ever seen in any
country. There will be thousands 'if
clia meters in the processions, all
dressed to the very life. The tableaux
on the Plains of Abraham, where the
historic buttles were fought, will embrace all the transcendent epoch-making events of Canada's romantic history, including Wolfe's work up to
his death. The street pageants will
be of wondrous beauty, the naval
demonstrations of an impressiveness
not heretofore realized. Quebec will
he tilled to repletion by thousands
from Knglnnd nnd the United States,
and tens of thousands from Canada,
but fully ten millions of people will
wisli to be present, and cannot find
hotel accommodation.
One of the grentest matters of anxiety to those organizing tlie celebration has been tlie question how to provide the millions of people who cannot see tlie celebration with illustrations mid descriptions, to give tlie
scenes of grandeur to the world in
their entirety.
Arrangements have been completed
by The Standard of Montreal, now
recognized us the National Illustrated
Paper of Canada, to issue what will
be known as ""The Standard Tercentenary Number," published by George
Murray Publishing Company, Montreal. We hnve bud the privilege of
examining the proofs of some of tin:

Standard. They eclipse in interest,
in fidelity of detail, in beauty of color
nnd execution, anything ever attempt,
ed in Canada] nud will bring the Tercentenary celebration right into the
homes of those lucky enough to procure a copy.
To connoisseurs The S'andard Tercentenary Number is one that expert
judges would think could not be sold
under $2.50, and yet it is to be published at 50 cents. It will be practically the only Tercentenary souvenir. The publishers announce that
orders uie now being booked, and all
orders mailed on or before June ?7
will be certain to be filled. After that
date the public must tnke their
chance, first come, first served.
Where orders remitted for cannot
be filled, remittance will be refunded.
Tlie Publishers of The Standard, 171

From tbe beginning of tbe foundation to the time when the great church

had reigned. The cost of the great

A   LADY   WAS     CURED     BY   DR.
Such is tlie testimony of Mr. I.ud-
ger Duguay, Pidgeon Hill, Quebec.
This is com mon story. Thousands
of people hnve been cured of Itch,
Piles, Eczema, or Suit Rheum, etc.,
by Ur. Chase's Ointment.
Suit Rheum is one of the most important of skin diseases. It occurs
anywhere, nt nny time, and on anyone. It often starts ns a rash, eventually breaking out in sores discharging wnter. Unless something is done
to stop this discharge, a crust will
form, which signifies nn advanced
stnge of this disagreeable disease.
Upon tlie first application, this ointment stops itching, loosens tlie congested mutter or scab, thoroughly
cleanses the sore, and after all dirt
and poison hns been taken out, it
allows nature to heal the affected
part through its agency, pure blood.
Here are the words of Mr. Lurlgir
Duguay,  Pidgeon  Hill,  Quebec:
"The experience which iny wife has
lind with Dr. Chnse's Ointment for
eczema nnd salt rheum is of very
great Importance, because 'or many
months she wns not nble to servo
herself with her hands, Since having used Dr. Chase's Ointment she
bus been entirely cured."
In the most simple ns well ns the
most aggravated skin irritation or
eruption, this ointment is certain to
give highly satisfactory results; 60
cents a box, at all dealers, or Ed-

Last of the Spanish Fleet at the Bat*
tie of Manila Bay.
"What was It like, that battle of Ma
nlla Bay. do you ask?"
The thunders of heaven would have
been lost in its din. It was fierce and
fast, like the rolling of all the drams
in the world or like bolts of heavy sailcloth torn into shreds by the wind.
What a picture it would make���that
battle, the last of the Spanish fleet, the
Don Antonio de Ulloa. She fought,
sinking a foot a minute! Gun nfter
gun went under, aud when tbe last
onset was made only her bow gun remained. Its crew, waist deep in water,
fought as though victory was crowning tbem. It was theirs to fire the last
gun upon that eventful day, and we
cheered them as they sank.
Those are the tilings men will write
about, but memory alone can paint a
picture so terrible that the moon, that
old night watch of the universe, hid
behind friendly vapors that she might
not see the embers of war as they
glared through the portholes and spon-
sons of half sunken ships, while ever
and anon exploding magazines would
tear the waters, and flames of yellow
and red flaunt above all that was left
of Spain's wreckage.
Surely Wellington was n Solomon
when he wrote, "Nothing except a battle lost enn be half so melancholy as a
battle won."
Saved From a Great Army of Ravenous
Driver Ants.
In ber "West African Studies" Miss
Klngsley tolls this story about the famous "driver" ants: "I was ln n little
village, and out of a hut came tbe
owner and his family nnd all the
household parasites pcllmell, leaving
the drivers iu possession, but the
mother and father of the family, when
they recovered from this unwonted
burst of activity, showed such a lively
concern and such unmistakable signs
of anguish at having left something
behind tbem In the hut that I thought
It must be the baby. 'In him far corner for floor!' shrieked the distracted
parents, and into that hut I charged.
"Too true! There In the corner lay
the poor little thing, a mere inert
black mass, with hundreds of cruel
drivers already swarming upon it To
seize it and givo it to the distracted
mother wns, as tbe reporter would say,
'the work of nn Instant.' She gave a
cry of joy and dropped It instantly
into a water barrel, where her husband held it down with a hoe, chuckling contentedly. Shiver not, my friend,

Sir Walter Raleigh expressed himself in a similar mood after he mounted the scaffold. Feeling the edge of
the ax, he snld to the executioner,
"This is a sharp medicine, but it Is a

earning something. Think of the future prospect rather than the preseut

Personality   of the   Founder  of  That
Great Organization.
It is just seventy-nine years ago
since General Booth was born in that
great industrial centre, Nottingham,
England, and it is forty-three years
ago that he began his work of organization which has resulted in the Salvation Army as we know it to-duy, an
Army whicli bus in this comparatively
small space of time taken a firm hold
upon fifty-three countries of the globe.
Hut for the dominating personality of
the general, a personality as emphatic in its particular sphere as that of
Napoleon in another direction, this
could not have heen accomplished.
Yet William Booth was not born of
wealthy parents who could have
brought the power of money to their
son's assistance. He started as a boy
of fifteen preaching in the worst slums
of Nottingham. He sought the most
sordid alleys, penetrated into that portion of slumdom where vice was hideous. Later, when he moved his campaign to London, he wns looked upon
by many as a fanatic, for he pursued
the same tactics. He was laughed at,
hounded from pillar to post, stoned.
And it was this persecution that made
the Salvation Army,
In those dark days of '65 when William Booth founded the Salvation
Army, tlie churches were failing miserably to attract. Seeing this, the
general knew that tho only course
wns to go into the streets in search of
converts. "Where will you get your
helpers?" someone derisively nsked
him. "There nre my helpers," be replied, pointing to n public-house door,
from whicli drunken men and women
were reeling. And, sure enough, these
were the first to recognize this man's
courage and rally round him. These
open-air services were interrupted by
rowdy gangs of hooligans, nnd the
authorities laid the hlirmo on the
preachers, and sent dozens to prison.
Yet still the movement grew. The
general,'-stern believer in the power
of discipline, instituted the various
well-known ranks in his Army. That
of enptain was not intended to be a
military term, but rather a nautical
one, in order to pave the way to the
conversion of tho Whitby fishermen.
As the years crept past, the Salvationists became a force in the religion of
the people, nnd from the little headquarters at the hack of the bird-shop
in the East End the organization
threw out its tendrils to all the towns
of Britain.
The Salvation Army is happy in its
title, and it is the result of an inspiration which came to the genernl in a
curious way. He was preparing tbe
annual report one year with liis two
secretaries, when one of them wrote,
"The Christian Mission is n Volunteer
Army." In a moment the present title
flashed across the general's mind, and,
taking the. pen from his secretary's
hand, he scratched out the word "Volunteer" and substituted "Salvation."
It hns alwnys been his aim to choose
his leaders from the working-class,
and among the most prominent heads
of the Salvation Army to-day are a
former collier boy and a chimney
sweep, while many of the most famous hymns used by the force nre being
written by an old engine driver. Merit
and work are the only things that
The general's method of living hns,
no doubt, largely accounted for his
longevity, and his magnificent powers
being still left intact at 79. His daily
life is simplicity in the extreme. In
spite of his age, he still rises at six
in the morning, takes a strong cup of
tea, and then works till eight. He
never allows himself more than a
quarter of an hour for nny meal, and
he never eats meat. He is a strict
vegetarian, and has always been so.
He suffers a good deal from insomnia,
so often works on till eleven or twelve,
till sheer mental fatigue produces
Bleep. As for dress, he has but one
suit of clothes a year, and he lives on
a small sum which the average bank
clerk would find grossly insufficient.

The flag of ihe American frigate

H. M. S. Shannon, June 1, 1813, nnd
which was recently sold at auction
in London, lias heen presented to the
Royal United Service Museum by William Waldorf Astor. Tlie bugle upon
wheh the famous Balaclava charge was
sounded as well as some Crimean medals auctioned at the same time, were
also bought by Mr Astor and have
been presented by him to the same
museum. Mr Astor is the great-grandson of John Jacob Astor, whose father
was a butcher in a littlo German village near Heidelberg nnd who went to
New York in 1783. He removed west

Mares ol Mahomet.
In bygone days there was no more
enthusiastic breeder ot horses than
the Prophet Mahomet. In the course
of time he became the owner of a vast
number of mares, and the point wns
how to arrive at n selection of the
very best. At last be hit upon tho following scheme.
For three days nnd nights tlie marcs
were kept without water, then tliey
were loosed, und ns might bnve been
expected, tore madly off to their usunl
watering place. Just as tliey were on
thc very brink of tlie water the trumpeter blew the war Bignnl for assembly. Madden with the thirst, the
mares forgot their training, all save
five, who, forgetting their own urgent
need, galloped back at once to seek
their musters.
Tiiese five mnres were set apnrt by
Mahomet as representing the pick of
his stud, and from them, we are told
descended the best and noblest breed
of horses.

Mrs, Blank, wife of a prominent
minister near Boston, had in her employ n recently engaged colored cook

"Matilda, I wish that you would

He Is Scotch, nnd yon kuow that the
Scotch eat a great deul of oatmeal."
"Oh, he's Scotch, ls he?" said Matilda. "Well, now, do you Luow I was

It is often snid that in these days
science is becoming materialistic. A
passage from a recent lecture by Sir
Wm, Ramsay, the groat chemist, on
radium, shows that this is certainly
not true of that distinguished investigator. Sir William in closing
Raid: Medical men have been experimenting with radium as a possible cure for ulcers of various kinds
on tlio liumnn body. I run not an
authority on this subject, but 1 nm
told that in certain cases of rodent
ulcer���a very terrible disease���the effect of the beta rays of radium has
lieen to produce n cure. People ask
whether cancer can be cured. I suppose 1 nm right in saying that it
hits not been cured, but I nm told
that great strides have been mado
within the last *fc\v montiis by one
of the professors at tho Royal College of Surgeons. Tutting aside tho
absolute use to human needs of
radium, might I suggest that one ol
tlie most important uses is with regard to the objects around us? It
we can expluin them and their method of working, we shall havo made
great advances. We scientific men
have faith in the laws of nature and
the constancy of its action. Wo havo
hope that we shall live to discover
much yet and gain a greater insight
into thinking the thoughts of Clod.
I have mentioned faith and hope: but
the apostle names another Important
virtue, charity, and I think you will
agroo that, fascinating as tho exorcise of faith and hope is in science,
still morn important is tho exercise
of charity.

Sneak'.:,���. of Grain,
In the United States when one spenk3
of "corn," maize is always meant. In
England "corn" is iipplied to all cereals, especially wheat, In Scotland
"corn" means onto. Germans use the
word in tlie sumo sense ns tho English. Carlyle, being n Scotchman, ln
writing of Frederick tho Greut ullows
himself to refer frequently to Frederick's "meal enrts," when, strictly
speaking, ho should have said "grain
carts." What tho bread of Frederick's
soldiers was made of wns wheat and
rye, not "corn" in the restricted Scotch
sense. In Scotland a "cornfield" la
only a field of oats. Junileson reniarlca
that the term "corn" in northern Europe is used to denote that species of
the grain most in use In any particular
region. Hence iu Snellen and Iceluuil
the term denotes hurley.
