In view of the proposed incursion of

he has been in Nelson 18 years.
The political air is full of froth.
Those likely ones spoken of as conservative candidates are W. A. Macdonald,
K.C., and R. S. Lennie, of Nelson;
James Schoiiold of Trail, the present
sitting member for Ymir in the Provincial Legislature; Fred. Starkey, of
Nelson, Wm. Hunter, the provincial member for this Hiding, and
A. E. Watts, of Wattsburg. "Bill"
Galliher, the present member, would
be a hard man to unaeat if he again
contested the Riding, but it is rumoured
that he will retire at the end of his
term. F. J. Deane, Editor of'the Nelson News, will likely be seen in the
nrena in the event of Galliher's retirement as a Liberal candidate.

Another instance of our prolific soil
and climate is worth recording. Last
week, Mr. J. C. Bolander, a well-known
New Denver resident, gathered a crop
ol asparagus in his garden. Also in his
gairlen may now be teen stocks a fool

plentiful everywhere.
We are glad to loarn of the good tim>*e

Whoever ia nominated for the Slocan
riding to contest the seat at tlie next
Dominion election, should be a clean
man. He Bhould be free from corporation intrigues, an enemy of graft, and
no wind-jammer. He should be a man
whom the division will respect for his
conscientious labors in his sphere ol
usefulness at Ottawa, and ho should he
beyond reproach as a friend of Iahor.
He should bo unbiassed when capital
and labor clash, and he Bhould throw
his weight with the right. It would be
a sacrilice of interests to send a man
whose voice is heard only on behalf of
capital, abd by Iho same common law,
it would be unjust to return a man
whose vote and interest is selfishly de-
yotcd_ to labor alone. The division
requires (he services of a broad-minded
eneigetic man, whose interests are our
interests, and the division should see
that the real article i_ returned.

Our Fruit Growers' Column.
Where they Stand.
It will ho well for ns lo lake stock of
tho country and Onrefully consider-along
what lines it can bist.be developed, nnd
for whnt crops or clasi of stick it is best
suited. We can grow the small fruits to
perfection, oh Mr. Vanstone has so well
demonstrat "d at Rosebery, anil wc have
a local market thai can lake agood deal
of fruit if it is properly looked after, and
regularly supplied, but as regards thc
big outside markets we must confess
that at present we are at a con ulerahle
disadvantage. To overcome this disadvantage, if we decide that we wish lo
grow the email fruits we must co-operate.
Our trouble licB In the fact that we
should have to grow lhe fruit on a very
large scale and make regular shipment:*
ol car loads right from the neighbourhood, otherwise our fruit will suffer
from the delay nnd rchaiidling at some
distant point.
If we do manage to ship by the car
load, and we are careful to grow the right
sorl of fruit and pack it in the light way,
tha small extra distance that wo are
from the North-West, compared with
such points as Nelson, will not he a very
Serious disadvantage.
If we wish to grow Btrawberries for
put side points, wc shall need to get together and decide on the variety to grow ;
then each must agree lo plant and look
after a certain quantity, for it will not
pay to go for tha outside markets in
any half-hearled manner.
We can grow pi aches here, but there
are places where they can grow them
much better, I believe; wherea__I also
bellove that there is no place where they
can grow better apples, pears, or plums.
Therefore, it Ecenis plain to myself that
we had belter concentrate our efforts on
Tlio valley of the Slocan River has
always appeared to me to be admirably
suite 1 for dairying. There is a large
amount of land thnt is flooded in the
early summer, but whicli should make
splendid pasturage at Ihe time when the
benches are getting dried up. Wc can
grow red clover to perfection here; with
the aid of irrigation we should be able
lo get two crops per year. We can also
grow splendid roots if we keep the cutworms well poisoned off, the summer
iiighlsnio cool and there is abundance
of good water. Now these are the conditions that make a good dairy country.
When we consider the splendid local
market for butter and the high prices we
pay for very inferior butter, we sball
wonder how loug it will bo beiore tho
farmers down Ihe Slocan River get together aud build a creamery.
But if this country can be made a good
dairying country, il is even better adapted to poultry���and poultry raising and
fruit growing go better together than
dairying and fruit growing. There is no
reason why eggs, chickens or turkeys
should be imported to this neighlionr-
hood, and we will look forward to the
time when the Slooan is self supporting
iu this matter.
Wc are not likely to become famous for
wheat or oats, but we may hope lo raise a
great part of our chicken feed, and by
letting thc hens do their own thrashing,
we shall keep them well exercht'd and
healthy during the winter. Mr. George
Williamson planted some fall wheat last
September, at the fame time sowing the
land down to clover, and it appeals to
ma that we are likely to find this plan
profitable, though enre will have to bo
exercised where the wheat is grown
amongst fruit treos, that the land is well
cultivated round each tree.

Now that the Liquor Licence Act has
heen amended, it will peihaps be instructive to publish a survey ol the
amended Act, ns nil hotels, with the
exception of those directly within the
jurisdiction of municipalities, come
under the amended law. Primarily, all
districts under "Llcfuor Licence Act,
1900," have been abolished. This dons
away with License Commissioners, and
all pollers are now vested in the Superintendent of Provincial Police, butit'is
lawful for Ilie superintendent of provincial police to grant licenses to sell liquor
in localities not in any municipality, and
not included in any liceiue district, and
all persons obtaining Ihe same shall be
subject lo all lho provisions of the Act
as fnr aa applicable. The* superintendent shad he guided by the provlsionsof
the Act in granting the liconses, except
when the circumstances of the case
lender it impossible or inconvenient to
so lo do, provided Unit no application for
new licenses or a renewal has been
granted, and then only can the application bo entertained, provided that the
applicant has advertised Ills intention of
applying for such license, such advcrlise-
nient shall he published in a newspaper
published and circulated iu the district
for a peiiod of one month.
The superintendent of provincial
police may at any lime cause any license
granted or renewed I y hiin to be cancelled upon satisfactory proof that tlie
licensee ii not keeping his premises in
accordance wilh the provisions of the
Act, or is keeping bin premises in a
disorderly manner.
D. J. McKenzie Killed.
Tlie sad news reached town yesterday
of a fatal accident at Tunnel, B.C., a
li.ig station in the boundary, between
Cascade and Robson. From the information of the sad event which is nt our
command, we learn that Mr. D. J. McKenzie, the highly esteemed C.P.R.
bridge superintendent of this division
waa crushed to death by a falling derrick. The sorrowful news has cast a
gloom over this district, where Mr.
McKenzie was well known. He wns
one of lhe oldest timers in this suction,
but when at home he livei at Nelson.
He was in New Denver a few days ago,
and his genial presence was as sunshine
to cloud. To hia sorrowing relatives we
extend tho sympathy of this district.
Leasers Get Decision.
Judgment in the suit of Forrest st al
versus Smilli and Treres has heen
handed in by Justice Martin. The case
has excited a great deal of local interest
and the finding of Mr. Justice Hunter
is being fully criticized throughout the
district. Tiie suit wns hoard at Nelson
on Friday, December 13th last, and lhe
hearing occupied a day, all parties then
agreed to the suggestion of the learned
judge to hand in hia judgment in writing
at a later date.
The defendant, Walker Smith, had a
lease upon all tho Payne mine workings,
and from him the plaintiff, A'ex. Forrest
and partners secured a sub-lease on No.
5 level. Plaintiffs wero lo receive 78
percent, on all ore extracted by them
during their tenure, the remaining 22
per cent, being divided between the
company, Smith, and the Government,
Smilli, it was asserted, waa in financial
difficulties, and prior to granting the
sub-lease he borrowed money on a
cha'tel mortgage from E. C. Traves. lhe
well-known meat merchant, of Nclion
Plaintiffs strenuously denied knowledge
of this mortgage.
The mortgage covered all the ore
taken out by Smith, and upon the plaintiffs making arrangements to ship some
$3,000 worth of silver-lead they were
threatened with legal proceedings,
Plaintiffs asked that-the chattel mortgage lie set aside. The judgment given
is in favor of Forrest ami Partners for
tho amount claimed, but they will have
to collect from Smith, as the learned
judge has decided lhnt thc mortgage
holds good. The action agninst Traves
waa dismissed with coats.
It is probable that an appeal will he

It ia, in short, a combined ell'ort to attach to the New Denver glacier the im-

There waa a jolly timo at Siocan City
on Tuesday evening last, when the
officers of the Sir. "SJocan" tendered a'
Program Ball lo the fashionable quota
at lho end of the lake. The venue was
the recently renovated Odd fellows' Hall,
where about thirty couples described
the poetry of motion until chanticleer
heralded tho morn. Win. Hicks made
a gallant M.C., and NorLhoy's Orchestra
achieved flirt her laurels.
Tho mariners provided an excellent
supper, which was a feast for the gods.
At the conclusion the guests gnvo three
cheers for tho boat crew.
The Nelson Canndinn, of 21st inst.
makes some remarks whicli all merchants and business men in tho Slocan
should carefully ponder over.   It  Eays :
"The Slocan Mining Review, ol New
Denver, has in view lhe extension of
its facilities for getting out a hotter paper, and this will "mean nn additional
expenditure of .100 per month. The
publisher appeals to the residents of
the Slocan to inciease their patronage,
so that he will not have te stand all the
expense. The Review is one of the
brightest weekly papers published in
Ilritish Columbia, and if Ihe people of
the Slocan district conault their own
interests, they will respond to the np-
peal by increasing the revenue, not if 100
a month, but five times Unit amount.
Every dollar spent that way will return
many fold."

TtWaTs ratlier uncomfortable at the
table after that, and rather quiet, too,
as Maddy did not care to ask anything more concerning her faint, while
the others were not disposed to talk.
Breakfast over, the two young men
repaired to the library, where Guy
indulged in his cigar, while the doctor fidgeted for a time, and then broke
out abruptly:
"I say, Guy, have you said anything to her about���well, about me,
you know?"
"Why, no, I've hardly had a
chnnce; and then, again, I concluded i> better for each one to speak for
himsell"; and carelessly knocking the
ashes Irom his hall-smoked cigar, Guy
leaned back in his chair, with his
eyes, and, to all appearance, thoughts,
wholly intent upon the curls of smoke
rising above his head.
"Guy, if you were not engaged, I
should be tempted to think you wanted Maddy Clyde yourself," the doctor suddenly exclaimed, conlronting
Guy, who, still watching the rings of
smoke, answered with tlie most provoking coolness, "You should?"
"Yes, I should; and I am not certain but you do, as it is. Guy," and
the doctor grew very earnest in his
manner, "if you do care for Maddy
Clyde, and she for you, pray tell me
bo before I make a fool of myself."
"Doctor," returned Guy, throwing
the remains of liis cigar into the grate
and folding his hands on his head,
"you desire that I be frank, and I |
will. I like Maddy Clyde very much��� v
more, indeed, than any girl I ever
met���except Lucy. Had I never seen
her���Lucy, I mean���I cannot tell how
I should feel toward Maddy. The
chances are, however, that much as
I admire her, I should not make her
my wile, even if she was willing.
But I have seen Lucy. I am engaged
to be married. I shall keep that engagement, and if you have feared me
at all as a rival, you may fear me
no longer. I do not stand between
you and Maddy Clyde."
Guy believed that he was saying the
truth, notwithstanding that his heart
beat faster than its wont, and hia
voice was a little thick. It was doubtful whether he would marry Maddy
Clyde, if he could. By nature, and
education he was very proud, and
the inmates of the red cottage would
have been an obstacle to be surmounted by his pride. He knew they were
good, far better than himself; but
from his earliest remembrance, he had
been taught that blood and family and
position were all-important; that by
virtue of them Remington was a name
of which to be proud; that his father's foolish marriage with a pretty
governess was the first misalliance
ever known in the family, and that
he was not likely to follow that example was a point fully established
in his own mind. He might admire
Maddy very much, and, perhaps,
build castle of what might possibly
have been, had she been in his sphere
of life; but, should he verily think
of making ber his wife, the olden
pride would certainly come up a barrier between them. Guy could not
explain all this to tlie doctor, who
would have been tempted to knock
him down, if he had; but he succeeded in quieting his fears, and even
suggested bringing Maddy in there,
if the doctor wished to know his fate
"I hear her now���I'll oall her," he
Baid; and, opening the door, he spoke
to Maddy, just passing through the
hall. "Dr. Holbrook wishes to see
you," he snid, ns Maddy came up to
him; and holding the door for her
to enter, he saw her take the seat he
bad just vacated. Then closing it
upon them, he walked away, think-
ine that Inst nisht's party, or something, had produced a bad effect on
him, making him blue and wretched,
just ns he should suppose a criminal
would feel when about to be executed.
Now that they were alone, the doctor's courage forsook him and he
���could only stammer out some commonplace remarks about the party,
asking how Mnddy had enjoyed it,
and if she was sure she had entirely
recovered from the effects of her
fainting fit. He was not getting on at
all, and it was impossible for him
to sny anything ns lie had meant to
say it. Why couldn't she help him,
instead of looking so unsuspiciously
at him with those large, bright eyes?
Didn't she know how dear she was
to him? He should think she might.
She might hnve divined it ere this;
and if so. why didn't she blush, or
At last she came to bis aid by saying, "Vou promised to tell me about
tbe h-neelets and necklace, whether
I ought to keep them."
"Yes, oh, yes, he believed he did."
And getting up from his chair, the
doctor began to walk the floor, the
better to hide his confusion. "Yes,
the brncelets. You looked very pretty
in them, Maddy, very; but you are
always pretty���ahem���yes. If you
were engaged to Guy I Bhould say it
was proper; but if not, why, I don't
know; tlie fact is, Maddy, I am not
quite certain what I am saying, bo
you must excuse me. I almost hated
vou that day you sent the note, tailing me you were coming to be examined; but I had not seen you then. I
did not know how, after a while���a
very little while���I should in all
probability���well, I did; I changed
my mind, and I���I guess you have not
the slightest idea what I mean." And
stopping suddenly, he confronted the
astonished Maddy, who replied:
"Not unless you are going crazy."
She could in no other way account
for his strange conduct, and she sat
staring at him while he continued: "I
told you once that when I wanted my
bill I'd let you know. I'd ask for pay.
I want it now. I present my bill."
With a scared, miserable feeling,
Maddy listened to him, wondering
where she should get the money, if
it were possible for her grandfather
to raise it, and how much her entire
wardrobe would bring, suppose she
should sell it! The bill had not
troubled her latterly, lor she had fallen into a way of believing that the
doctor would wait until she was graduated and could earn it by teaching.

tnan ior mm to present It rio"w;'"and
with a half-stifled sob she began to
speak, but he silenced her by a gesture, and sitting down beside her,
said, in a.voiee more natural than the
one with which he had at first addressed her:
"Maddy, I know you have no
money. It is not that I want, Maddy;
I want���I want���you."
He bent down over her now, for her
face was hidden in her hands, all
sense of sight shut out, all sense of
hearing, too, save the words he was
pouring into her ear���words whicli
burned their way into her heart, making it throb for a single moment with
gratified pride, and then growing
heavy as lead as she knew how impossible it was for her to pay the debt
as he desired.
"I can't, doctor; oh, I can't!" she
sobbed. "I never dreamed of this;
never supposed you could want me for
your wife. I'm only a little girl���only
sixteen last October���But I'm so sorry
for you, who have been so kind. If I
onlv could love you as you deserve I
I do love you, too; but not the way
you mean. I cannot be Maddy Holbrook; no, doctor, I cannot."
She was sobbing piteously, and in
his concern for her the doctor forgot
somewhat the stunning blow he had
"Don't, Maddy, darling!" he said,
drawing her trembling form closely
to him. "Don't be so distressed. 1
did not much think you'd tell me yes,
and I was a fool to ask you. I am too
old; but, Maddy, Guy is as old as 1
The doctor did not know why he
said this, unless in the first keenness
of his disappointment there was a
satisfaction in telling her that the objection to his age would apply also
to Guy. But it did not affect Maddy
one whit, or give her the slightest
inkling of his meaning. He saw it did
not, and the pain was less hard to
bear. Still, he would know certainly
if he had a rival, and so he said:
"Do you love someone else, Maddy? Is another preferred before me,
and hs that the reason why you cannot love me?"
"No," Maddy answered, through
her tears. "There is no one else.
Whom should I love, unless it were
you? I know nobody but Guy."
That name touched a sore, aching
chord in the doctor's heart, but he
gave no sign of the jealousy which
had troubled him, and for a moment
there was silence in the room; then,
as the doctor began faintly to realize
that Maddy had refused him, there
awoke within him a more intense desire to win her than he had ever felt
before. He would not give her up
without another effort, and laying her
unresisting head upon his bosom, he
pleaded again for her love, going over
all the past, and telling of the interest awakened when first she came to
him that April afternoon, almost two
years ago; then of the little sick girl
who had grown so into the heart never before affected in the least by
womankind, and lastly of the beautiful woman, as he called her, sitting
beside him now in all the freshness
of her young womanhood. And Maddy, as she listened, felt for him a
strange kind of pity, a wish to do his
bidding if she only could, and why
shouldn't she? Girls had married
those whom they did not love, and
been tolerably happy witli them, too.
Perhaps she could be so with the
doctor. There was everything about
him to respect, and much which she
could love. Should she try? There was
a great lump in Maddy's throat as
she tried to speak, but it cleared
away, and she said very sadly, but
very earnestly:
,"Dr. Holbrook, would you like me
to say yes with my lips, when all the
time there was something at my
heart tugging to answer no?"
This was not at all what Maddy
meant to say, but the words were
born of her extreme truthfulness, and
the doctor thus learned the nature ol
the struggle which he saw plainly was
going on.
"No, Maddy, I would not have you
say yeB unless your heart was in it,"
he answered, while he tried to smile
upon the tearful face looking up so
sorrowfully at him.
But the smile was a forlorn one,
and there came instead a tear as he
thought how dear was the fair creature who never would be his. Maddy
saw the tear, and as if she were a
child wiped it from his cheek; then,
in tones which never faltered, she
told him it might be in time she'd
learn to love him. She would try so
hard, she'd think of him always as
her promised husband, and by that
means should learn at last not to
shrink Irom taking him for such. It
might be ever so long, and perhaps
she should be twenty or more, but
some time in the future she should
feel differently. Was he satisfied, and
would he wait?
Hor little hand was resting on his
shoulder, but he did not mind its soft
pressure or know that it was there,
so strong was the temptation to accept that hall-made promise. But the
doctor was too noble, too unselfish to
bind Maddy to himself unless she
were wholly willing, and he said to
her that if she did not love him now
she probably never would. She could
not make a love. She need not try, as
it would only result in her own un-
happiness.    They  would  be    friend*
just as they always had been, and
none need know oi what had passed
between them, none but Guy. "I must
tell him," the doctor said, "because
lie knows that I was going to ask
Maddy could not explain why it
was that she felt glad the doctor
would toll Guy. She did not analyze
any of her feelings, or stop to ask
why she Bhould care to have Guy
Remington know the answer she had
given Dr. Holbrook. He was going to
him now, she was sure, for he arose to
leave her, saying he might not see
her again before she returned to New
York. She did not mention his bill.
That was among the bygones, a thing
never again to be talked about, and
offering him her hand, she looked for
an instant earnestly into his face,
then without a word, hurried irom
the room, while the doctor, with a
sad, heavy heart, went in quest of

lhan it had beiore since he left the
doctor with Maddy Clyde.
Yes, refused me, as I might have
known she would," was the doctor's
replv. spoken so naturally that Guy
looked up quickly to see if he really
did not care.
But the expression of the face belied the calmness of the voice; and,
touched with genuine pity, Guy asked
the cause of the refusal���"preference
for anyone else, or what?"
"No, there was one whom she preferred. She merely did not like me
well enough to be my wife, that was
all," the doctor said, and then he
tried to talk of something else; but it
would not do. The wound was yet too
fresh and sore to be covered up, and
in spite of himself the bearded chin
quivered and the manly voice shook
as he bade good-by to Guy, and then
went gallopine down the avenue.
Great was the consternation among
the doctor's patients when it was
known that their pet physician--the
one in whose skill they had so much
confidence���was going to Europe,
where in Paris he could perfect himself in his profession. Some cried, and
among them Agnes; some said he
knew enough already; some tried to
dissuade him from his purpose; some
wondered at the sudden start, while
only two knew exactly why be was
going���Guy and Maddy; the former
approving his decision and lending
his influence to make his tour abroad
as pleasant as possible; and the latter w��eping bitterly as she thought
how she bad sent him away, and that
if aught befell him on the sea or in
that distant land, she would be held
amenable. Once there came over her
the wild impulse to bid bim stay, to
say that she would be his wife; but,
ere the rash act was done, Guy came
down to the cottage, and Maddy's
resolution gave way at once.
It would be difficult to tell the ex- J
act nature of Maddy's liking for Guy '
at that time. Had lie offered himself
to her she would probably have refused him even more promptly than
she did the doctor; for, to all intents
an'* purposes, he was, in her estimation, the husband of Lucy Atherstone. As such, there was no harm in
making him her paragon of all male
excellence; and Guy would have felt
flattered could he have known how
much he was in that young girl's
thoughts. But now lor a few days he
had a rival, for Maddy's thoughts
were all given to the doctor, who came
down to see her once before starting
for Europe. She did not cry while he
was there, but her voice was strange
and hoarse as she gave him messages
for Lucy Atherstone; and all that
day her face was white and sad, as are
the faces of those who come back from
burying their dead.
Only once after the party did she
go up to Aikenside, and then, summoning all her fortitude, she gave
back to Guy the bracelets and the
necklace, telling him she ought* not
to wear them; that ornaments as rich
as these were not for her; that her
grandmother did not wish her to keep
them, and he must take them back.
Guy saw she waa in earnest, and
much against his will he received
again the ornaments he had so gladly
"They would do for Jessie when she
was older," Maddy said; but Guy
thought it very doubtful whether Jessie would ever have them. They were
something he had bought Ior Maddy,
something she had worn, and as such
they were too sacred to be given to
another. So he laid them away beside
the picture guarded so carefully from
Two weeks afterward Aikenside presented again a desolate, shut-up
appearance, for Agnes, Maddy and
Jessie had returned to New York; Agnes to continue the siege whicli, in
despair of winning the doctor, she had
commenced against a rich old bachelor, who had a house on Madison
Square; and Maddy to her books,
wliich erelong obliterated, in a
measure, tlie bitter memory oi all that
had transpired during her winter

A spiritualist medium came to a

an old horse which they had sold
years beiore and the old lady wanted
to know where lie wns.   She began:
"We had a very good friend who
always did all our work. He passed
from us seVeral years ago and the
last we heard ol him was that he was
in Los Angelos." The medium made
j a few mysterious motions, knocked
on the table, and then said:
"Your friend is in Los Angelos and
is married to a rich young woman."

Every   Form   of   the   Disease   Yields
To  This   Blood   Building
Tt is easy to make the statement
that a medicine will cure rheumatism, but the rheumatic sufferer must
have more than mere statements���he
must have both reasons and proof.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure all
forms of rheumatism. Here is the
reason: Rheumatism is a disease of
the blood. Every dose of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually make new,
rich, red blood���This new blood drives
out the poisonous acids, loosens the
���idling joints, and rheumatism is
banished. Thousands have testified
to the truth of these statements, and
lere is further fresh proof. Mr.
Haoel Mnntigny, of St. Jerome, Que.,
���ays: "For many years I was a vic-
*.im of rheumatism and was almost a
cripple. My work made it necessary
'or me to be on my feet a good bit
if the day, but my limbs became so
swollen and tne pain so agonizinp
'hat I was forced to stop work. I
'.ried remedy after remedy but nothing gave me relief and I began to
think I would never get better. At
Inst I was persuaded to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. In less than a
month I noticed a slight change in my
condition. I continued the Pills for
three months and at the end of this
time the swelling had disappeared;
every pain and ache had left me and
I felt better in every way. I was
completely cured and once more able
to go about my work with ease. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills are certainly
worthy of all the praise I can give
Thousands write giving just as
strong proof of the value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills���not only as a cure
for rheumatism, but as a oure for
all the ailments finding their root in
jad blood, such as anaemia, heart
palpitation, indigestion, kidney trouble, headache and backache, disordered nerves, etc. Dr. Williams' Pinn
Pills are sold by medicine dealers or
by mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes
for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

Tragic Funeral Rites���Death Hunters
and tmprovisatorcs.
When a Corsican woman dies, sbe la
always burled in a new costume, which
sometimes with the poorer classes
takes up most of the family savings,
and as the heat of the climate renders
burial Imperative within twenty-four
hours the new gown ls generally commenced directly tho dying person's Illness assumes a serious form.
Corsicans reverence the dead, and a
feature In a funeral is tbe "improvisa-
tores," women whose business It is to
improvise prose-poetry to the mourners. Often this improvising is wonderfully beautiful and breathes the true
feeling of sorrow.
The "death hunters" attend funerals
and afterward wrestle with the mourners. If a relative of the deceased gets
tbe better in tbe combat it is assumed
that his affection for the departed relative was absolutely genuine.
Wben the corpse leaves the house,
the women gather at an upper window
and, tearing out handfuls of their hair,
throw It on the coffin. The rich hire
women mourners who scratch their
faces and are paid In proportion to the
injuries they inflict on themselves ln
their paroxysms of grief.
A Corsican widow wears a strip of
black material tied on her eyes for a
week, and during that period she Is
fed and led about by her friends. No
room ln ber house ls cleaned and no
fire lighted for tbe same period.
In tbe cemeteries are a succession of
little buildings with flat roofs and high
openings. These are the tombs, and Inside them are rich hangings, flowers,
poetry and lamps which the mourners
place tbere in remembrance of tbe departed.

' Catarrh
J. C. Hervus Pelletier, Dep't de I'Agriculture, Ottawa, Ont., writes:
"The Peruna is particularly efficacious in the cure of catarrhal affections of the lungs and bronchial tubes, and it is in consequence the
remedy most appreciated here in Ottawa. Six bottles cured me this
winter of bronchitis. I am completely restored and owe thanks to the
Peruna. I have recommended this remedy to a large number of my
friends afflicted with the same trouble, and they have verified my good
opinion   of   this   valuable   remedy."
Catarrh of the bronchial tubes often
very quickly becomes catarrh of the
lungs. Qatarrli of the lungs makes
the patient an easy victim to the
germs that cause tuberculosis. Sound
lungs protect themselves against disease germs.
Peruna has acquired a lasting reputation in relieving catarrh of the
throat, bronchial tubes and lungs.
This should prevent the tubercular
bac'lli from gaining any foothold in
the lungs, and saves the patient from
the inevitable result.
| Mr. Wickcliffe K. Smith, Editor ol
The Potlatch Herald, formerly principal of the Schools at Cameron, Idaho, writes:
| "For some time I suffered with catarrh of the throat and bronchial
tubeB. I tried many remedies, but
could find nothing that would give
me relief.
"Finally I tried Peruna. Three bottles cured uie, made me sound and
well. I believe it will do as much
for others as it did for me. I shall ba
glud to recommend it to those Buffering with catarrh."

An   Important   Message  That  Carries
The importance of a statement by
a gentleman in whom the people repeatedly express their confidence by
electing him to a position of honor
and trust, cannot be overlooked in a
question of life and death. Life and
health are unquestionably the most
vital subjects to every human being.
How to retain these concerns all.
Here is what Bryoe Allan, Esq., for
many years a prominent figure in
Hnldimand County and a member of
the County  Council,  says:
"Believe me, I am fully as gratified
to tell you of my recovery through
Psychine as you are to hear of it.
Last fall I became weak, run down
and nervous through overwork and
worry, was unfit for work, and had
no appetite, and felt as if I had lost
all interest in life. I contracted a
series of colds from changing wintei
weather, and gradually my lungs became affected. I tried remedy after
remedy, and a number of doctors pies
cribed for me. but got no relief. 1
began using Psychine. After twe
months' treatment 1 regained my
health and strength. I am sound as
a bell to-day, and give Psychine all
the credit."

Four of Them, All Young and Pretty
���Their Duties at Court.
Queen Alexandra's household consists of only fifteen ladies and six
men, in striking contrast with that of
the King, which includes more than
a hundred individuals.
Queen Victoria had eight maids ol
honor, of whom two were always in
waiting, but Queen Alexandra's
known desire for a less stately life
has prompted her to reduce the number to four.
Queen Alexandra delights to surround herself with quite young, bright
and clever people, and all four maids
are still in their early youth.
The tradition is that these young
women invariably marry well.
Their position at court brings them
into contact with highly eligible
partners, and an old custom dating
back for centuries prompts their royal
mistress to provide a dowry of ��1,000
on their wedding day. The marriage
of one of the maids of honor is a
great event in the London season.

room for the presentation of debutantes and those who have entree at

England the Haven of Political Refugees and Royal Fugitives.
England has always been the haven of political refugees and royal
pretenders and as a rule they have
shown their appreciation of the
country's hospitality by refraining
from criticizing their hosts or saying
anything that might jeopardize their
position as mere tolerated outsiders.
But the Duke of Orleans overstepped the bounds some years ago and
made a violent and uncalled for attack on the late Queen Victoria. In
the end, writes the London correspondent of Town and Country, he was
obliged to leave the country and did
nut return until he made a most abject apology.
This little incident haa not endeared him to the British people, who
look upon him as a person of no account. But since his return lie has

life of an ordinary country gentleman,

stand  immediately  around   Her  Majesty during the whole ceremony.
This applies also to the state concerts, which are most formal and elaborate functions, beginning at ten
o'clock at night ��nd lasting two hours.
They must also be in readiness at any
time to play duets with the Queen,
a dreadful ordeal to even great artists,
as she is a brilliant player.
Then there are charity visits,
schools to be inspected, and a multitude of royal duties. In all of which
the Queen is accompanied by her
ladies. At all these functions the
Queen's maids are almost painfully
alert to anticipate the slightest wish
of their mistress. At the concerts
thev do not stand, "but sit immediately behind the Queen and royal princesses.
At state balls they occupy the same
position. They relieve Her Majesty of
her bouquet or her fan if necessary,
and adjust her great ermine cloak or
sable wraps when draughty corridors
are traversed or on the staircases.
They are in attendance at all state
and public ceremonies, and when driving, as to the opening of a charity
bazaar, to the railway station and
other places), one of the girls has a
seat in a carriage immediately preceding that of the Queen.
The duties of these four young ladies in waiting begin immediately
after Her Majesty's breakfast. One or
more of them assist Miss Knollys in
answering the mass of correspondence,
which requires the ability of a linguist. Then they must be in readiness to sing or to play if required, or
ti take expeditions on horseback, an
exercise of whicli Her Majesty is
fond, and they must necessarily have
a good seat and be adept whips.
Thev must be skilled in some of
Her Majesty's special fads, such as
wood-carving, fine art needlework,
spinning and poker work. They must
b3 tactful at all t*'mes. amiable, and,
in fact, almost absolute paragons.
Their meals are taken with the
lords and ladies of the household, unless they are requested to join the
royal family at luncheon or dinner.
Nine o'clock is the hour for dinner,
nnd one oi the maids of honor just
before it must place on the table
at the right hand of the Queen a huge
bouquet. After dinner the maids join
the royal circle. They enter into the
amusements and may be asked to
show their accomplishments.
At other courts, it is said, the regime is still the reverse of pleasant.
In Austria an imperial or royal visit
to the opera, theatre or some such
function is regarded as a particular
penance and a severe trial of the
patience and endurance of the ladies
in waiting. They are compelled to
stand through the long performance
and to bear all the discomfort with
a smiling countenance, as do the
acrobats and dancers who appear on
the  Btage.
The late Empress of Austria had a
decided fondness for Wagner, and it
can be well imagined what was in
store when either "Seigfried" or "Tristan" was sung. In Spain, too, the
etiquette of the courts is very severe.
"Swapped" Their Wives.
A remarkable instance of two men
changing wives was disclosed at the
Coventry (Eng.) Police Court recently.
A married woman, named Annie
Saunders, charged with stealing a leg
of mutton, pleaded that she did so to
get food for her boy, as the man she
lived with had been out of work.
The man, who admitted having exchanged wives, explained that his
wife obtained �� separation order from
him and the custody of the children,
and went to lite with another man.
He allowed them to have all the furniture. He then started another home,
and took the wife of the other man
and her child. They lived happily,
but he was out of work for twenty-
two weeks. He pleaded with tears in
his eyes for leniency for the woman.

When the woman, wbo was dejected

She Played Detective.
Late one night at 0 house in a midland town a lady's maid, after retiring to her bedroom, was trying on a
new pair of corsets. "Not such a
bad little figure, after all," she soliloquized aloud, with a pretty conceit,
as she saw her reflection in the glass.
That same night the house was entered
by burglars, who got away with a
quantity of jewelry. Some weeks afterward the lady's maid was in the
midst of a crowd when the remembrance of that night was brought
vividly to her mind by her overhearing a man say jestingly to his companion, "Not such a bad little
figure, after all." Quickly grasping
the situation, the maid followed the
men and informed a policeman, and
so was the means of the couple being
in many social phases, once as a
waiter and again as a highly appreciated member ol the best society of
the West end.

Declares Case Against the Lords ���>
Frivolous One.
Lord Lansdowne, speaking at Shel-
field recently, referred to the threats
to end or mend the House of Lords,
and said that what made it worse for
him was that he supposed he was
the leading villain of the Parliamentary piece.
/ They were told that the Lords might
repent, but he confessed that he was
\ unrepentant. They might search his
luggage in vain tor anything approaching a white sheet. The case against
the Lords was a frivolous one, bolstered up by frivolous arguments, and
the frivolity of the indictment was
ouly equalled by the absurdity of the
remedy proposed.
The majority of the House of Commons, particularly when the Parliament was not young, was not always
a:i infallible guide to the deliberate
judgment of the country.
Lord Lansdowne agreed that there
was room for some improvement in
the House of Lords, and suggested
changes in the distribution of business between the two Houses.
He thought that the work of the
House should be done���(as it was to
a great extent now)���by a carefully
selected body of peers���men representing tlieir various kinds of experience
���assisted in their deliberations by
peers chosen by a less haphazard
fashion than was sometimes the case
in these days. Thus fortified and reorganized, lie thought the House
would continue to possess the confidence which the country extended to
it at present, and come to be regarded
us an invaluable bulwark against rash,
lii���ardous, and  subversive  proposals.
Mourning Vagaries.
"Mourni'.ig is not what it used to
be," said an undertaker. "In fact, I
expect to see it go out altogether in
lhe next century or so. Perhaps it is
just as well. No young widow, I've
beard say, can wear mourning without looking like au adventuress. But
in the seventeenth century widows
not only wore mourning, but their
lied curtains were black, and the
���sheets ..nd pillowcases had a black
edging, like stationery. Even their
lingerie had a mourning band. In
Italy the nobles of the renaissance
carried tlieir mourning as lar as their
imives and forks, which had ebony
nstead of ivory handles. Gray cloth
.uperseded black for mourning in the
tiehteentb century.
The general increase in the price of
wood for the past few years has had
the effect of turning public attention
to the timber supply in general. To
many, the increase in prices is sufficiently explained by saying that
there is a combine among lumber
producers and manufacturers. But,
independent of the possible existence
of any combine, a deeper cause underlies the increase in prices, and the
cause is this, that timber is becoming
harder and harder for the manufacturer to get. Greater and greater
economy and use of materials formerly considered as waste is being introduced into the manufacture of wood,
but in spite of it all the price of logs
is going up, owing to higher wages
that have to be paid, greater distances
the logs have to be brought and many
other reasons.
Not in America alone is tlie scarcity of timber being felt; it has become a world-wide question. Only
seven countries in the world are now
in a position to export timber. In
Europe there are five, namely: Austro-
Hungary, Norway, Sweden, Finland
and Russia; in America there are two.
namely: Canada and the United
States. But Russia, Austro-Hungary
ind the United States are increasing
their population and developing their
industries so fast that they cannot
long continue to be exporting countries. The timber of Norway is threatened with excessive cutting. Germany,
where the practice of forestry has
been brought to the greatest perfection, has never been able to supply
home demands, and is a heavy importer.
Canada, Sv_eden and Finland are
left, and their supply is hopelessly deficient for the world. If Canada were
to attempt to supply the United States
ilone. its entire timber area would
be cut off and denuded in tlie course
of a very few years���probably less
than a decade.
Various estimates of Canada's forest land have been given. Eight hundred million acres was a few years
ago accepted as pretty near the truth;
but considerng the damage caused by
fire and other destructive agencies,
it is doubtful if the ex'sting forests
tiover half that area. To keep this
area in its most productive state, thus
enabling it to meet the demand as
far as possible and to produce the
largest revenue, is the problem set
those in control of these areas, and
the protection of the forests against
fire and other dangers and their proper management under forestry methods is the only way in which this
can be effected.
No sane mother would wish herself

Jefferson Davis and a Joke He Did
Not Appreciate.
When Jefferson Davis was secretary
Df war be ordered all his generals to
learn to ride horseback. No finer horse
fnan than Jefferson Davis ever lived.
He won the love and band of Zach
Taylor's daughter by his distinguished
presence tn tbe saddle, as well as by
bis intrepidity at the cannon's mouth.
When secretary of war he noticed that
only a few officers ln the service were
capable horsemen an4 issued an order
something like this:
"A liberal reward will be paid to any
officer or private in the army who will
offer a satisfactory device for keeping
our soldiers from falling out of their
saddles. Communications to the secretary of war will be regarded as confidential."
Captain George Horatio Derby, one
of tbe leading army engineers of bis
day, used to write humorous and witty
stories over the pen name of John
Phoenix. He received a copy of Secretary Davis' order while improving
the harbor of San Diego, CaL, and Immediately forwarded the most Intricate and accurate designs of his plan
for keeping officers and men fa the
.addle. To tbe seat o. each officer's
"pants" he attached a bull ring, and
another bull ring waa attached to the
saddle. The two bull rings were to be
lashed together when the officer mounted his steed. "If taat doesn't bold,
nothing will," wrote Phoenix to the
secretary. Davis waa furious when he
got this proposition and Immediately
ordered that Captain Derby should be
court martialed for "official levity.**
The secretary felt that tbe army bad
been disgraced and wanted Derby severely punished. One of his Intimates
hastened to him. "Jeff," he whispered,
���'If you order a court martial for this
little pleasantry of John Phoenix, one
of the salt of the earth and Immensely
popular in the army, you will be made
a laughingstock. The people will ridicule you out of office. Just laugh it
off." Davis took his adv.ee.

The Surprise They Gave a Roomful of
In tbe early part of the nineteenth
century Vauxhall was the resort of
ma*oy respectable persons, especially
of those who came up from the country to see London sights. During one
senson it was Infested by a band of
rcuRhs, who made It tbelr occupation to
Insult and molest the most quiet, decent people, especially any whom they
guessed to be country visitors. Tbey
became such a nuisance that Beveral
men about town, among whom were
I_ord Alvanley and Keppel Craven,
laid a plot to get rid of them.
Tbey hired Mendoza, the famous
prize fighter, and dressed him up as a
dean, with a shovel hat and apron.
Another prize fighter, a short man.
was dressed as a middle aged lady
and passed as tbe dean's wife, and ono
evening they were seated at Vauxhall
In a consplciioiu position to watch the
fireworks. It was not long before th*
old fashioned, countrified pair attracted the attention of tbe gang, who assailed tbem with erery kind of coarse)
raillery and Insult, all of whicli they
bore very meekly.
At length one of the *r*ersecntora,
growing bolder by Impunity, stepped
op to the dean and squirted an orange
Into bis eye. On this tbe dean, rising,
said In a meek, quiet tone, "Really,
gentlemen, I have borne a great deal,
but I must put a stop to this." With
that his bat went one way and his
coat another, and, followed by his
"wife," be sprang Into the middle of
tbe party, hitting out in all directions-
Filled wltb astonishment and terror,
some Bed and some tried to st*ow
Aght, but the handling they got fiom
tbe prize fighters was too severe foi
the fracas to last long.
All the time Lord Alvanley and bis
friends, who were ln the bores, were
calling out ln dellgbt: "Go It Mr.
Deanl Give It 'em, Mrs. Dean!** Aa

Army Desertions.
Published records of desertions from
the United States army In the last year
would seem to show that the cavalry
arm Is responsible for most of them.
Tbe coast artillery corps and the Infantry are next In order, with the field
artillery showing a smaller proportion.
The engiueer corps reports a few Isolated cases of "French leave," and the
signal corps ls happily free from the
evil. Of course the men hi t.iie two
last named branches of the service are
not so numerous as in the three principal arms, but proportionately they
stand as above. Tbe number of desertions from the four negro regiments
in tbe army Is less than that from
