Ml Have] Made Elaborate
Preparations For The
Festive Season.
This Is the lime of the year when the
merchant makes special effort to cater
to the many wants of the families of the
district for the Chrlstmast festival. We
have ever been advocates of supporting
home enterprise, and never have been
lacking in condemnation of the "Eastern" habit, and when one goes among
cur merchants at this time of the year
one cannot fail to be greatly impressed
with the enterprising spirit now dominating our principal storekeepers. In this
they should have the support of the
populace, as It Is to the merchant we
look for assistance in everything pertaining to support for local improvements, etc.
Nalson's Drug and Book Store.
Wo began our round by calling at the
store of that enterprising engine of
commerce, Chas. F. Nelson, and we were
greeted with a perfect vision of Fairy
land. Suspended from tho ceiling of
his store was a gigantic Japanese umbrella, and from it. were trailed multicolored ribbons which gave a blaze of
co'.or to this compact emporium. Wo
venture here to assert that the stock
now displayed at this store certainly
cannot be beat in any town in the interior. There are articles which would
require the wad of a millionaire to be-
Kin on, and there ar myriads of others,
:iii "useful and seasonable, ranging to the
nimble nlckle. No need to pore over
tlie pages cf Timothy Sweatshop when
here before your gaze is sp.'ead an as-
sdrtment of goods suitable for presents
which you can inspect before purchasing, and at prices that are purse ticklers.
Eie't cut. glass Snd sterling silver table*
ware are there ln abundance. Then
there are such chic novelties as manicure and toilet sets in sterling silver;
jewel bos**-, ink-si.ands, sewing sets, eta
DaintyHJits of jewelry In gold and silver
nre temptingly displayed, aud a lar_*;e
assortment ui fancy chink, rups and
saucers, p',**:*.";, jalad bowis, cea sets,
etc , stand out entreating you to become
their owner. Then, again, what nicer
presents for a boy or girl than a good
book; the large stock to be seen here
was an eye-opener for us. And for the
little ones, to whom Christmas is the
zenith of joy, there is every conceivable
novelty to make them glad. Mechanical
toys (nearly human), pianos, stoves,
etc; and the dolls! Never did Slocan
witness sueh an array. Mr. Nelson ls
making a special feature of silver souvenir spoons, upon which are engraved
the names of Sandon, Silverton and New
Denver, as the purchaser may require,
and the handles are emblematical of
the mining industry. These are really
choice and up-to-date. Then the sale of
Mr. Nelson's portfolio, "The Silvery
Slocan," should be enormous during the
holiday season.    This store Is worthy
a visit.
J. B. Smith.
Calling upon Mr. Smith we found him
and his help too busy to help us very
much, but it was quickly perceived that
he had made-special efforts to meet the
holiday trade. Candies, nuts, raisins,
currants, peels and a hundred and one
Christmas delicacies to tempt the housewife. Particularly did we notice the
s.veil line of candies which are so nattily displayed, bottles of choice satin
looking fellows in all flavors which always invite you to help yourself when
the proprietor is not looking; fruit tablets, chocolates, in fact all the Btaple
lines are there in abundance. It ls a
pleasure at all times to pay a visit to
Mr. Smith's store, but at thiB time when
Christmas is in the air it is particularly
inviting. The stock of men's wear includes a fine assortment of underwear,
shirts, sox, overalls, sweaters, mack-
inaws, ties, collars., rubbers, boots, mits,
gloves, handkerchiefs, hats, caps, blankets, in fact there is nothing that ls needed that cannot be supplied by Mr. Smith
ln the ordinary run of a well equipped
general store.
New Denver Meat Market.
Here we found an old friend surrounded by such an array of carcases of mutton and beef that we at once set ourselves the question, "Does the district
demand such a supply?" but we were
quickly undeceived when Mr. Clever,
the proprietor, informed us that by six
o'clock tho same evening his shop would
be cleaned out of that useful comestible
which he dispenses to the surrounding
���district. Mr. Clever now holds the enviable position of Meat King of the
Slocan; be is the only butcher in a district of wide area, ar.d it must bo put on
record that hi*, system of supplying all
the many mines, logging camps, hotels
and families throughout this scattered
district is* perfect. Nakusp, Burton City
and all the ranches contiguous thereto;
Summit, Rosebery, New Denver, Three
Fork?, Sandon, Silverton. Enterprise,
S'.ocan Citv all look to Clever to mi the
bill, and it would astonish Pat Burns
If he but had the inside track of Clever'B
��� B'yle.cf doing this. All the mutton supplied' to his patrons is home fed; his
steers roam the pastures along our
beautiful shores until their hour for usefulness arrives; his pork bas the advantage of clean diet, and when all are
hun. ln hlH cold storage compartment,
which bv the way, iB the best in the interior, it is a sight for an epicure. For
the Christmas trade there are such
delicacies as fresh Eastern and Olympia
1 other Shell-fish; turkeys,
, ohtckentyand the choicest
Here special attention ha3 been given
to the season's demands. All the necessaries for the housewife or bachelor are
temptingly displayed, and there is
scarce anything missing from his up-to-
date stock. A large assortment of ladies',
misses', gent's and children's shoes in
patent leather and French kid aro shown
as a leading specialty, also fancy slippers and dancing pomps, the latest New
York lasts. Then ther are piles of
blankets, quilts, rugs, linoleums, oil
clothB, etc., etc.; stacks of trunks, club
bags, suit cases, and similar goods.
Gents' furnishings of all the latest
styles in Scotch plaid, ladles' and children's wear, in fact there is nothing required by man woman or child which
cannot be obtained here. Tastefully arranged are such articles suitable for
XmaB presents as box chocolates, all
flavors, mixed candies, in bulk. English
G. B. D. case pipes and pouches, and
English, Canadian and American tobaccos of all kinds. In the line of jewelry
we noticed some beautiful thin model
gold watches, gold chains, ladles' and
misses' wrist watches, also a chic line
of gold-filled ladles' bracelets.
Next Spring Mr. Delaney Intends to
build an extensivo up-to-date establishment which he says will be both an
acquisition and a credit to our pretty
little town.
Mrs. J. M. Williams.
In Mrs. Williams' store, which is always replete with a stock of articles
that are necessary for the comfort and
beautiflcation of our wives and children,
we found the above lady arranging a
line of men's wear, a new departure.
With commendable enterprise tho proprietress is keeping pace with tbe times,
believing perhaps, that what's "sauce
for the goose ls sauce for the gander."
In this connection there are displayed
soma tasteful linen shirts, fancy ties,
collars, gloves, hose, bedroom.slippers,
handkerchiefs and gent's hats. The
special line for ladles 13 gloves, collars,
waists, hose, belts, fancy ribbons and
ladles' slippers. For the kiddles there
are gloves, toques, slippers, bander*
chiefs, bonnets and such like, and a
special line in bear coats and hats are
shown. Mrs. Williams' prices are certainly lower than Timothy Eaton's in
very many cases.

Our lepresentative paid a visit to the
MolUe Hugues mine recently, and tounu
a crew of meu at work under the supervision of Mr. 11. Black, who is now
working the property under a lease
and band obtained from the local owners, Messrs. T. Avison, H. Clever, H.
Sheran and Geo. H. Crawford of Fairfield, Wash.
Roughly speaking not less than 20
cars of 125oz. ore has been shipped
from this property and several cars ot
ore have also been treated which have
returned gold values of $10, a useful
commodity which plays an important
part in the payment of freight and treatment. The property has been a steady
shipper from the grass roots.
From a cursory examination it would
appear that most of the work thus far
dbne has been with a view of developing a quartz' ledge of an east and west
trend, wherein high values are found
for the most part in silver in grey copper mass. The surrounding district Is
granitic. Two series of fissures appear to exist, one trending approximately northeast, the other south of east.
The values so far exhibited boar an
inverse proportion to tho breadth of Assure content; where the walls approximate closely, content ls of a higher average value.
From an economic shipping point of
view the Mollie Hughes group has perhaps the choicest location in the entire
Tha group consists of five full crown
granted claims situate between Rosebery and Now Denver and the point
of operations now pending lies half
way between the track of the C. P. R.
and Slocan Lake, so it will be seen that
whether transportation be desired by
rail or water, the ore could be dumped
direct in cars or on the steamer.
At the present moment the property

A regular meeting of the License Commissioners for the Slocan district was
held in the government office, New
Denver, on Monday, 16th Inst., there being present: Messrs. D. B. O'Neill, Slocan City; J. C. Harris, New Denver, and
Mr. H. G. Fisher, manager of the local
branch of the Bank of Montreal, returned home a happy Benedict, accompanied
by his English bride, on Saturday evening. A large crowd gathered upon the
wharf to greet them; but ever a joker,
Mr. Fisher fooled the boys���or did he
dread the tooting of the steamer's horn,
which Captain McLennan had promised
VV. F. Lawson, Sandon. There were also,
in the court room Rev. Chalmers, Pres.f** ���reeale Wn�� wltn on nearln8 nls des
byter.an, and Re'.. Clfford, Methodist.
At the preliminary part of the proceedings some conversation took place re
the recent letters which had appeared
In the Nelson and local papers touching
the caso of tbe man Garrity, but no opposition to any renewals was forthcoming.
"it was proposed by D. B. O'Neill, sec-
ondede by J. C. Harris, that the following renewals of licences be granted:
Andiew Jacobson, St. James' hotel,
Henry Stege, Newmarket, New Denver;
D. Grant, Windsor, R. M. Spencer, Victoria, D. Brandon, Selkirk, Silverton; J.
T. Beaucbesne, Basin, Arlington; N.

��� It was moved, seconded and carried,
that the following resolution be spread
on the minute book:
"That it has heen brought to the attention of this Board of Licence Commissioners of the Slocan Licence District that there has been considerable
laxity displayed by the holders of licenses in running their hotels. Now, the
meeting of the Board of Licence Commissioners for the Slocan District instructs J. T. Black, inspector of licenses for the district, to notify all holders
of hotel licences in the district that any
Infringement of the law will be taken
up at once and dealt with in a summary

Editor Review.���In answer to the
Eev. W. A. Gifford's letter, we the undersigned business men of Silverton
are forced to have our names appear
before the public in order to contiadiot
statements ninl. by him which appeared in tho Nelson News of the 14ih inst.
He staff's iu the first place that the
conditions around the Silverton hotels
could only be described as disgraceful
and criminal. In reply to that, wc
have never seen anything disgraceful; i
and as far as criminal is concerned, we
hnve never witnessed a crime ln the
history of Silveiton. He next referred
to a man who died hero in an hotel, of
which he knows very little about. In
this case be criticised the dead very
severely, and be aleo criticised tbe decision of Coroner Arthur after a careful
investigation, and lie now lies at the
mercy of tbat gentleman.
He also enquires why are three hotels
license I In Silverton when one insufficient ? One is not sufficient. We are
doing more business anel shipping moro
are titan all the other towns in the district put together. And for a town of
its size there is no other town in lhe interior of B.C. that has three such fine
hotels or managed as quietly and
decently, and we sre all doing well.
That should ho reason enough fnr anyone. Wo have all due respects for a
clergyman of any d-nominaton, and always give them tho glad hand when
they come annng us, but when lliey
come to slur and try to heap disgrace
upon good respectable citizens we believe they should be kept in their own
plare the same as other persons.
Tho License Commissioners held their
meeting at New Denver on the lllh
inst., to consider renewals. This the
Rev. Gifford was invited to attend and
say what he bad to say before those
three gent'rjmen he had ttied to scandalize. But be was careful to be there
only for tbe last ft w minutes of tbe
sitting, but there was plenty of time
to say what he bad to say about the
" horrors " he had previously mentioned. When all were at-kad iftltcyhad
anything to *ay be sat its though he
had no tongue in bis head. That was
the time and place tot him to make his
talk, and not in a uewepapor, and particularly one ontede the district.
For our own j. art we feel sorry for
Rev. Gifford, for it wsb extremely bad
taBte for a man of his cloth and education to publicly criticise his neighbor-
ami maku them feel bad, even though,
his ftEsettions were farcictl. Now, wo
will give Rev. W. A. Gifford our kindest advice, and that ia, to pay mote
attention to liis own profession, and we
can assure him be will have enough to
do without scandalizing hotel keepers,
criticizing our license inspector's good
common sense, informing thc commissioners what their duties nre, and giving Dr. Arthur bucIi a cinch pn bim

Association Formed To Advertise its Resources and
Improve the Town.
A most striking example of the feeling dominating the entire Slocan waa
manifested on Monday evening last,
when a thoroughly representative meeting of tradesmen of the beautiful little
town of Silverton was held in the Hunter block to discuss a program wherein
the resources of the mines contiguous to
the town would be better shown, tho
surrounding scenery made known to the
world, and the general beautiflcation ot
tlie town begun without delay. It was
quickly seen at this meeting that all
were unanimous In the need of organization to better attain the result desired,
and as the outcome the "Silverton Progressive Association" has sprung into
active existence. Mr. N. F. McNaught,
one of Sllverton's most respected old-
timers was elected to the chair, and
Mr. Robt. Dodd, a prominent rancher
of the  district,  was elected secretary.
After the chairman had made a few
general remarks as to the purport of
the meeting, Mr. Wm. H. Hunter, M. P.
P., took the floor and began by saying
J that the time was most opportune for
concerted action in advancing the interests of the town and district. Ho
advocated a propaganda of advertising
in a reasonable way to induce the people to come and live amongst them, and
in this regard he felt that the prosperity
now enjoyed Bhould be more widely
known. From such a programme would
follow the reopening of the school with
a large attendance, and he pointed out
that a teacher should be advertised for
without delay. He saw no reason why,
such an organization should not ba
The meeting then got down to real
business and W. H. Brandon moved, and
Mr. T. James seconded that such an
association lie formed, and this was carried with enthusiasm.
"The 3ilverton Progressive Association" thus received its baptism.
Then came the election of officers.
On motion of Messrs. W. H. Brandon
and Tt* James, MA, Wm;. Hunter, M. P. P.
for the district, was elected honorary
president, and on motion of Messrs. W.
H. Brandon and T. H. Wilson, N. F.
McNaught was elected president. Dan
Brandon was the choice of the meeting
for vice-president on motion of Messrs.
Wilson and D. Grant, and Roht. Dodds
ls to be secretary-treasurer, which waa
carried on motion of Messrs. Wilson and
F. ParsonB. A committee will be appointed by the president ln the next
few days. It was also agreed that the
membership fee should be $1, and that
tho members would meet every first and
third Monday of each month ln tho
Hunter block.
It was pleasant to note the general
spirit of enterprise and optimism prevailing, and much was discussed wherein the town will rise from its lethargic
condition of recent years and take a
new lease of life. 50,000 feet r_f lumber
for new sidewalks are to be ordered and
the world is to learn of its resources
from a mining, ranching, tourist and
residential view. It was pointed out that
in the various mines directly local no
less than 177 men were on the payrolls:
that for the past year an average of 300
tons cf ore per month had been shipped,
and that the probabilities of this output
being doubled iu the very near future
were indeed rosy.
A press committe consisting of
Messrs. N. F. McNaught, DoddB and H.
Buckley was then formed, and after
votes of thanks the meeting adjourned.

'DrtWi***. at Tr rjfisTt trot tnrough the
grounds, Sorrel was soon out upon
the highway; and witb spirits exhilarated by thoughts of going home, he
kept up the .trot until, turning a sudden corner, his master saw the carriage from Aikenside approaching at
�� rapid rate. The driver, Paul, Baw
him too, but scorning to give half the
road to such as Sorrel and the square-
boxed wagon, be kept steadily on,
while Grandpa Markham, determined
to speak with Guy, reined his horse a
little nearer, raising hiB hand in token that the negro should stop. As
a natural consequence, the wheels ol
the two vehicles became interlocked,
and as the powerful grays were more
than a match for Sorrel, the - front
wheel of Grandpa Markham's wagon
was wrenched off, and the old man
precipitated to the ground; which,
fortunately for him, was in that locality covered with sand banks, so
that he was only stunned for an instant, and thus failed to hear the insolent negro's remark: "Served you
right, old cove; might of turned out
for gentlemen." Neither did he see
the sudden flashing of Guy Remington's eye, as, leaping from his carriage, he seized the astonished African by the collar, and, hurling him
from the box, demanded what he
meant by serving an old mon bo
shameful a trick and then insulting
All apology and regret, the cringing
driver tried to make some excuse, but
Guy stopped him short, telling him to
see how much the wagon was damaged, while he ran to the old man, who
had recovered from the first shock
and was trying to extricate himself
from the folds of his camlet cloak.
Nearby was a blacksmith's shop, and
thither Guy ordered his driver to take
the broken-down wagon with a view
to getting it repaired.
"Tell him I want it done at once,"
he said, authoritatively, as if he well
knew his name carried weight with
it, then, turning to grandpa, he asked
again if he were hurt.
"No, not speeinlly���jolted my old
bones some. You are very kind, sir,"
grandpa replied, brushing the dust
from hia pantaloons and then involuntarily grasping Guy's arm for support
as hiB weak knees began to tremble
"from the effects of excitement and
"That darky shall rue thiB job,"
Guy said, savagely, as he gazed pityingly upon the shaky old creature be
side him. "I'll discharge him to-morrow."
"No. young man. Don't be rash.
He'll never do't again; nnd sprigs like
him think they've a right to make fun
of old codgers like me," was grandpa's meek expostulation.
"Do, pray, Guy, bow long must we
wait here?" Agnes asked, impatiently,
leaning back in tbe carriage and par-
tialiy drawing her veil over her face
as she glanced nt Grandpa Markham.
but a look from Guy silenced her;
and  turning  again   to  grandpa,    he
taclr Pfl *
"What did you say? You have been
te Aikenside to Ree me?"
"Yes, and I was sorry to miss you.
I���I���it makes me feel awkward to
tell you, but i wanted to borrow some
money, and I didn't know nobody as
likely to have it as you. That woman
up to your  house  said  she  knowed
you  'dn't let me, have it, 'cause
you hadn't it to spare. Mebby you
haven't," and grandpa waited anxiously for Guy's reply.
Now, Mrs. Noah had a singular influence over her young master, who
was in the habit of consulting her
with regard to his affairs, and nothing
could have been more unpropitious
ta the success of grandpa's suit than
the knowing she disapproved. Beside
this, Guy had only the previous week
lost a small amount loaned under
similar circumstances. Standing si
lent for a moment, while he buried
and reburied his shining patent leather boots in the hills of sand, he said
at last: "Candidly, Bir, 1 don't believe I can accommodate you. I am
about to make repairs at Aikenside
and have partially promised to loan
money on good security to a Mr. Silas
Slocum, who, 'if things work right,'
as he expressed it, intends building a
mill on some property which has
come, or is coming, into his hands."
"That's mine���that's mine, my
homestead," gasped grandpa, turning
white almost as his hair blowing in
the April wind. "There's n stream ol
water on it, and he says if he fore
closes and gets it he shall build a
mill, and tear our old house down."
I Guy was in a dilemma. He had not
asked how much Mr. Markham wanted, and ns the latter had not told him,
he naturally concluded it a much
larger sum thnn it really wns, and
; did not care just then to lend it.
I "I'll tell you what I'll do," he said,
after a little. "I'll drop Slocum a note
to-night saying I've changed my mind,
and shall not let him have the money.
Perhaps, then, he won't be so anxious to foreclose, and will give you
time to look among your triends."
Guy laid a little emphasis on that
last word, and looking up quickly,
grandpa was about to say: "I'm not
so much a stranger as you think. I
knew your father well," but he check-
<��l himself with tlie thought: "No.
that will be too much like begging pay
for a deed of mercy done years ago."
So Guy never suspected that the old
man before him had once laid his sire
under a debt of gratitude. The more
he reflected the lass inclined he was
to lend tjpe money and as grandpa
was too timid tc urg. his needs, the
result wns that when at last the wheel
was replaced, and Sorrel again trotting on iownrd Devonshire, he drew
after bim a sad, heavy heart, and not
once until the village was reached
did he hear the cheery chuckle with
which his kind master was wont to
encourage him.
"Poor Maddy! I dread tellin' her
the most, she was so sure," grandpa
whispered, as he stopped before the
office door, where Maddy waited for
But Maddy's disappointment was
keener thnn his own, and so after the
sorrowful words, "nnd I failed, too,"
he bent himself * comfort the poor
child, who, leaning her throbbing
head against his shoulder, sobbed bitterly, as in the soft spring twilight
they drove back to the low red cottage where grandma waited for them.

It was Farmer Green's new buggy
and Farmer Green's bay colt which,
three days later than this, stopped
before Dr. Holbrook's office. Not the
.-tquare-boxed wagon, with old 8orrel
attached; the former was standing
quietly in the chip-yard behind the
low red house, while the latter, with
his nose over the barnyard fence,
neighed occasionally, as if he missed
the little hands which had daily fed
him the oatmeal he liked so much,
and which now lay hot and parched
and helpless upon the white counterpane Grandma Markham had spun
and woven herself. Maddy might have
been just as sick as she was if the
examination had never becurred, but
it was natural for those who loved her
to impute it all to the effects of excitement and cruel disappointment,
so there was Bom 'thing like indigna
tion mingling with the sorrow gnawing at the hearts of the old couple as
they watched by their fever-stricken
darling. Farmer Green, too, shared
the feeling, and numerous nt first were
his mental animadversions against
that "prig of a Holbrook." But when
Maddy grew so bad as not to know
him or his wife, he laid aside his prejudices, nnd suggested to Grandpa
Markham that Dr. Holbrook be sent
"He's great on fevers," he said,
"and is good on eurin' sick folks," *��o,
though he would have preferred someone else should have been called,
confidence in the young doctor's skill
won the day, and grandpa consented.
This, then, wss the errand of Farmer Green, and with his usual blunt
riess he said to the recreant doctor,
who chanced to be at home:
"Wall, you nigh about killed our
little Madge t'other day, when you
refused the stifficut, and now we want
you to cure her."
The doctor looked up in surprise,
but Farmer Green soon explained his
meaning, making out a most aggravated case, and representing Maddy
as wild with delirium.
"Keeps talkin' about the big books,
the Latin, and the Hebrew, and even
the Catechism, as if such was 'lowed
in our school. I s'pose you didn't
know no better; but if Maddy dies,
you'll have it to answer for, I reck-
The doctor did not try to jexcuse
himself, but hastily took down the
medicines he thought he might need,
and stowed them carefully away. He
had expected to hear from that examination, but not in this way. and
rather nervously he made some inquiries, as to how long she had been
ill, and so forth.
Maddy's case lost nothing by Mr.
Green's account, and by the time the
doctor's horse was ready, and he on
his way to the cottage, he had arrived at the conclusion thnt of all the
villainous men outside the walls of
the State's prison, he was the most
villainous, and Guy Remington next.
What a cozy little chamber it was
where Maddy lay. just such s room
as a girl like her might be supposed
to occupy, and the bachelor doctor
felt like trending upon forbidden
ground as he entered the room so rife
with girlish habits, from the fairy
slippers hung on a peg, to the fanciful little wnr'tbox made of cones and
neorns. Maddy was asleep, and sitting
down beside ber he asked thnt
the shnwl which had been pinned
across the window might be removed
so that he could see her. and thus
judge better of her condition. Tbpv
took the shawl away, and the sunlight
came streaming in, disclosing tc the
doctor's view the fnce never before
seen distinctly, or thought nbi'Ut, if
seen. It was ghastly pale, save where
'he hot blood seemed bursting through
the cheeks, while the beautiful brown
hair was brushed back from the brnw
where the veins were swollen und
full. The lips were slightly apart, and
the hot breath came in quick, panting
gasps, while occasionally a faint moan
escaped them, and once the doctor
heard, or thought he heard, the sound
of his own name. One little dimpled
hand lay upon the bedspread, but the
doctor did not touch it. Ordinarily he
would have grasped it as readily as
if it had been a piece of marble, but
the sight of Maddy. lying there sc
sick, and the fearing he had helped
to bring her where she was. awoke tr
life a curious state of feeling witb
regard to her. making him almost as
nervous as on the day when she ap
peared  before  him  a?   candidate  No.
""Feel her pulse, doctor; they are
faster 'most than you can count,"
Grandma Markham whispered and
thus entreated, the doctor took the
soft hand in his own, its touch -ending through his frame a thrill such
as the touch ot no other hand had
ever sent.
Somehow the act reassured bim. All
fear of Maddy vanished, leaving behind only an intense desire to help,
if possible, tbe young girl whose tin
gera seemed to cling around his own
at be felt lor and found the rapid
"If she would awaken," he snid

the great sweat-drops lay.

witli her late disastrous failure; hi
would miller she should think of bin:
as someone come to cure her, for curt

he gazed into her childish face and
thought how sad it was for such a*-
she to die. When first he enteret'
the cottage he had been struck with
the extreme plainness of the furni
hire, betokening that wealth had not
tltero an abiding place, but now be
forgot everything except the sick girl,
who grew more and more restless,
talking of bim and the Latin verb
Which meant "to love," she said, and
which was not in the grammar.
"Guy was a fool and I was a brute,"
th* doctor muttered, as he folded up
the bits of paper whose contents he
hoped might do much toward saving
Maddy's life.
Then, promising to come again, he
rode rapidly away, to visit other pa
tients, who. that afternoon, were in
danger of being sadly neglected, so
criuttnntlv   waa   their  youi)*..   r'lvsic-
larTtT'lruTfrl TTwCEifjj G_To_r th? litlle
low-walled chamber where Maddy
Clyde was lying. As night closed in
she knew them all, and heard that Dr
Holbrook had been there prescribing
for her. Turning her face to the wall,
she seemed to be thinking; then, calling her grandmother to her, she whispered: "Did he smooth my hair back
and say, 'poor child'?"
Her grandmother hardly thought he
did, though she was not in the room
all the time, she said. "He had stayed a long while and was greatly interested."
Maddy had a vague remembrance of
such an incident, and in her heart
forgave the doctor for his rejection,
thinking only how handsome he had
looked, even while tormenting her
with such unheard of question.., and
how kind he was to her now. The
sight of her grandfather awakened a
new train of ideas, and bidding him
to sit beside ber, she asked if their
home must be sold. Maddy was net
to be put off with an evasion, and
so grandpa told her honestly at last
that Slocum would foreclose, but not
while she was sick; he had been seen
that day by Mr. Green, and had
promised so much forbearance.
This was the last rational conversation heltl witli Maddy for many a
week, nnd when next morning the
doctor came, there was a look of deep
anxiety upon his face as he watched
the alarming symptoms of his delirious patient, who talked incessantly, not of the examination now, bu'
of the mortgage and the foreclosure
begging the doctor to see that the
house wns not sold, to toll them she
was earning thirty-six dollars bv
teaching school, that Beauty would
be sold to save their dear old home.
All this was strange at first to the
doctor, but the rather voluble Mrs
Green, wbo had come to Grandma
Markham's relief, enlightened biro,
dwelling with a kind of malicious
pleasure upon the fact that Maddy's
earnings, had she been permitted tc
get a "stiflicut," were to be appropriated  toward  paying  the debt.
If the doctor had hated himself tVie
previous day when he rode from the
red cottage gate, he hated himself
doubly now as he went dashing down
the road, determined to resign his
office of school inspector that very
day. And he did.
Summoning around him those win-

came he should either turn therr
from his door or give them a certifl
cate without asking a question.
"Put anybody you like in m>
place," he said; "anybody but Guj
Remington. Don't for thunder's sak��
take him."
There was no probability of this, as
Guy lived in another town, and could
not have officiated had he wished. But
the doctor was too much excited to
reason upon anything save Madeline
Clyde's case. That he perfectly understood; and during the next few
weeks his other patients Waited many
timeB in vain for liis coming, while
he sat by Maddy's side watching
every change, whether for the worse
or better. Even Agnes Remington was
totally neglected; and so one day she
sent Guy down to Devonshire to say
that as Jessie seemed more than
usually delicate, she wished the doctor to take her under his charge and
visit her at least once a week. The
doctor was not at home, but Tom said
he expected him every moment. So
seating himself in the armchair, Guj
waited until he came.
"Well, Hal," he began, jocosely,
but the joking words he would have
uttered next died on his lips as he
noticed the strange look of excitement and anxiety on the doctor's
face. "What is it?" he asked. "Are
all vour patients dead?"

Your 'sleep is restless; your appetite

All this suffering is caused by bad

but good blood���nothing can make

Williams' Pink Pills for Pnle People.
These pills never fail to make, rich,
red, health-giving blood. Mr. H. It.
Reed, Quebec city, says: ..bout
twelve months ago I was all run down
as the result of over-work. My doctor ordered me to take a complete rest
but this did not help me. I had no
appetite;* my nerves were unstrung
and I 'was so weak I could scarcely
move. Nothing the doctor did helped
me and I began to think my case
was incurable. While confined to my
room friends came to see me and one
of them advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I did so and soon
my appetite improved; my color came
back and in less than a month I was
able to leave my room. I continued
the pills for another month and they
completely cured me. I am now in
the best of health and able to do my
work without fatigue. I feel sure that
all who are weak will Ind renewed
health and strength in Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. They certainly saved me
from a life of misery.

The Necessity For Equilibrium In Bird
It ls likely tbat the bird's superb
ease and grace ln the air are due to Its
ability to maintain absolute balance.
If a gull makes tbe mistake of bending until the wind strikes its bead
and wings on the top It will tumble
Instantly. And tbe sailing birds,
though they make uo Happing motion
of their wings*** are constantly balancing themselves, like a man on a tight
rope. Some scientists have maintained
that the air sacs make it possible for
the bird to manage minute changes
that are very valuable In restoring
equilibrium. It is kuown that the
wing Is joined to the body of tbe bird
by what is called a universal joint
enabling tbe ospature to muke almost
every possible motion. The body of a
man Is heavier than water, but If be
g"ts into a position of perfect balance
he will float. In some such way. It is
claimed, the bird floats In tbe air But
as the bird would fall much more rapidly in the air than a man's body
would sink In water tbe necessity for
a fur more subtle ability to keep the
center of gravity on the part of the
bird Is apparent; hence, according to
this theory, the bird ls provided for
this purpose with the most sensitive
equipment, made up of nerves and
mysterious air ducts, many of tbe wing
feathers perhaps acting as sentinels,
warning instantly of the slightest approach of shifting currents.���Everybody's Magazine.

The digestive system is a wonderful
piece of machinery, but power is
necessary to make it effective.
In this case the power is the nerve
force contained in the body, and if the
nerve force is lacking the d'gestive
system becomes crippled, and there is
suffering from indigestion, nervous
headaches, neuralgic pains, dizzy
spells, weakness and discouragement.
Strength cannot be regained from
the food you eat so long as digestion
is so imperfect, but you can be restored by Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
which contains in condensed pill form
the very elements of nature which go
to form new nerve force.
Overwork, worry, anxiety and excessive mental effort exhaust the nervous system at a tremendous rate,
and repair must be made before some
dreadful form of nervous disease sets
in. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food invigorates the nerves which control the digestive fluids, sharpens the appetite,
is slightly laxative, so as to encourage
the action of the bowels and strengthens every organ of the body.
'You can use this treatment feeling
certain that every dose is doing you
fat least some good, and can prove it

Vanished   Prejudice  Against  Trade
There was in the reign of militarism and barbarous force much contempt for the man engaged in trade.
How completely all this is changed!
But, indeed, the feeling was of recent
origin, for if we look further back, we
find the oldest families in the world
proud of nothing but the part they
played in business. The wool-sack
and the gallery still flourish in their

how to keep out of trade but how to
get in it is the question. The old
feeling of aversion is entirely gone.
There is now allied with the desire for
gain the desire for progress, invention
improved methods, scientific development, and pride of success in these
important matters, so that the dividend which the business man seeks
and receives to-day is not alone in
dollars. He receives with the dollars
something better, a dividend in tlie
shape of satisfaction in being instrumental in carrying forward to
higher stages of development the

Old  Man's Grim Fino' While Digging
AU the countryside of West Cumberland is talking of Peter White's
���ruesome find. Peter lives at North
���Side, Workington, and one of the de-
ights o; his old age is the tending
if his garden. He was busy the other day digging vegetables when he
came across bones, and further inve-s-
igation led to the discovery of the
���ifceleton of a fully-grown man.
White's garden is opposite the
church, but that was only erected 14
years ago, and there was never any
burial ground there. Everything points
to the fact that foul play has taken
place, and it is recalled that 26 years
ago, when Cammell & Co.'s works
were removed from Dronfield to
Workington, life was very unsafe, owing to hordes of tramps following the
iron and steel workers to their new
home. Lawlessness abounded, and
disappearances of men became so frequent that they led to but slight investigation.
The West Cumberland Works ��� a
stone's throw from the garden where
the skeleton was dislodged ��� were
then in th^ir heyday of prosperity,
and boremen, leaving at the weekends with largo sums in tlieir possession, were o'ten attacked by bands
of desperate outlaws. The conjecture
is that the bones found are those of
one of the missing men at that period.

secure evidence throwing light on the
mystery of an accumulation of bare

Into military matters, and one of the
Scotchmen declared, and his statement
was borne out by his compatriots present, that the first regiment ever formed in the British army, the First Royal
Scots, supplied the guard for the tomb
of Jesus Christ after the crucifixion.
It appears that the' Romans carried off
a number of wild, warlike highlauders
as prisoners after their conquest of
Britain, nnd these men and their descendants became soldiers of the Roman empire, and as such they guarded
the tomb. T_.Ib Scottish company, for
it only consisted of a hundred men
under a centurion, was kept distinct
from the Roman army proper. At the
time of the crucifixion tbey were called
Pontius Pllc'e's Scotch guards, and
their descendants were the nucleus of
the First Royal Scots In later, years.
The archives of this regiment at the
headquarters at Olencorse, Scotland,
are stated to bear this out. I had
heard this some yeara ago. my Informant now being a well known Scotcb

Canada's  First  Railway.
The first railway in Canada was
the Chumplain and St. Lawrence Railway, whicli ran'from Laprairie on the
St. Lawrence River, eight miles above
Montreal, to St. Johns, on the Richelieu, a distance of 14 1-2 miles. "The
company of proprietors of the Cham-
plain and St. Lawrence Railway," was
incorporated on Feb. 25, 1832, but
work was not begun until 1835. On
July 21, 1836, tlie first train was run
over the road. A few days before an
accident had hv oened to the little engine, and it was deemed advisable to
attach to it only two of the passenger
ears, while the otberB were drawn each
. by two horses. Some three hundred
persons, including the Earl of Gos-
ford and other high officials, were
present by invitation of the directors,
to take their first trip over a Canadian railway. Next day, wlxjn the
engine had been repaired, it effected
the journey to St. Johns, with two
passengers and two loaded freight
cars, in forty-live minutes, and returned in thirty. The rolling stock of
the road consisted of the engine, of
from five to six tons, four passenger
cars each carrying eight persons, and
twenty freight curs, capable of conveying about ten tons each. The engine cost ��1,500, and the cars ��1,000.
The cost of the road itself was estimated at ��33,000. The rails were of
wood, with flat iron spikec, to them,
ind as far as any degree of smooth
conveyance was concerned, similar
conditions, to-day, would by no means
suit twentieth century requirements.
The real epoch, however, during which
railway construction in Canada had
its serious beginning, was between
1853 and 1856. The first railway line
lonstructed in the United States was

quite the same thing. But there's
something in the word 'guy' we all resent. I believe Unit, word 'Jollying*
wards off many a fit of temper, for
there's something about It that sounds
cordial and good uatured, and It seems
as if the man who would flare up at
being Jollied was a very sour minded
"When I was a young man we talked
of 'Joking' oue another, but somehow
that sounds rather flat today. Later
people 'rooled' oue nnother, but there
was too much of a vlsiou of a dunce
enp to make that expression very popular. 'Guying' followed, but somehow
lhnt savored too much of holding a
fellow being up to ridicule. And now
we've graduated to 'jollying,' and I
think It's uu Indication that the world
In general Is becoming better natured."

Struggle With a Panther.
Wild excitement was caused in the
Colootollah section of Calcutta on a
recent Saturday morning, by the ap-
Dearance of a panther, whicli mauled
lour men before it was shot by a superintendent of police. The beast was
iiscovered by the wife of a babu in
an office in Phears lane, and she
Uarmed her husband. He went to
see if his wife's report was true, and
was promptly knocked over by the
animal as it tried to escape. The
alarm spread and a crowd soon collected, but in the meantime the brute
had taken cover, and could not be
found. Suddenly it rushed into the
street. A coolie was standing in its
way, and he struck at it with an iron
rod he hnd in his hand, but missed.
The panther struck him on the shoulder and knocked him into the gutter,
breaking his knee. The crowd fled,
ii.d the panther took refuge in a
Iruggist's shop, springing on a man
vho wns cleaning cooking-pots and
scratching his fnco. More people arriving, the fugitive took cover in a
I 'varehouse behind the dispensary.
Superintendent Merriman arrived with
an express rifle and entered the dis-
oensary. The panther refused to leave
the warehouse, nnd an elderly up-
counytryman stepped boldly inside the
warehouse and began beating a can
with a stick. The response was immediate. The panther sprang forward, nnd, seizin*- linn by the right
arm, lifted him bodily off the ground
nnd shook him violently. The man
caught the beast by the neck, and a
desperate struggle ensued. The superintendent was nnnble to fire, for the
native-was between him and the beast,
until tbe latter, frightened bj- the
shouts of the ponple, released his victim and was despatched.

Judicial  Clemency
A Chicago lawyer tells abrrut a case
that was tried in a "backwooods"

was an Eastern man, new to the country.

all evidence was in..
"No, I guess not," replied the judge.

The Effect of Opium
I heard little about the beautiful
dreams and visions which opium is
supposed to bring; all the smokers
with whom I talked could be roughly
divided into two classes���those who
smoked in order to relieve pain or
misery, and those miserable victims
who smoked to relieve the acute phy-
���* ,sical distress brought on by the opium
itself. Probably the majority of the
victims take it up as a temporary relief; many begin in early childhood���
the mother will give the baby a whiff
to stop its crying. It is a social vice
only among the upper classes. The
most notable outward effect of this indulgence is the resulting physical
weakness and laBhitude. The opium-
smoker cannot work hard; he finds
it difficult to apply bis mind to a
problem or his body to a task. As
the habit becomes firmly fastened on
him, there is a perceptible weakening
of his moral fibre; he shows himself
unequal to emergencies which make
nny sudden demand upon him. If
opium is denied him, he will lie and
steal in order to obtain it.
Opium smoking is a costly vice. A
pipeful of a moderately good native
product coats more than a laborer aan
earn in a day, consequently the poorer classes smoke an unspeakable compound based on pipe-scrapings and
charcoal. Along tlie high-roads the
coolies even scrape the grim from the
packsaddles to mix with t_ie dross.
The clerk earning 'rom twenty-five to
fifty Mexican dollars a month will
frequently spend from ten to twenty
dollars a month j on opium. The typical confirmed smoker is a man who
spends a considerable part of the
night in smoking himself to sleep,
and all the next morning is sleeping
off the effects. If he is able to work
at all, it is only during the afternoon
and even at that, there will be many
davs wlien the official or merchant
is incomnetent to conduct hia affairs.
Thousands of prominent men ire

(5) be cured if sick, (6) help relations

Law   and   Gooseuemes.
Under the headline, "An Expensive
Gooseberry Bush," an Austrian paper
prints this story: "On the boundary
line of two farms near R there is
a large gooseberry bush, from which
the two farmers have for years gathered the product. 'What grows on
my side is mine, and you may have
the rest,' was the agreement. Three
years ago the neighbors had a misunderstanding, and this came to a
climax when the gooseberries became
ripe. A law-suit followed and appeals
were made to higher judicial bodies.
The final decision has just been recorded. This gives tc both parties
the right to pick the berries which
grow on their side of the line���just as
it was originally���and denies the right
to destroy the bush to both of them.
The costs were charged h<ilf to each
litigant. Each lormer had to pay 225
kronen. The yearly yield of the bush
will bring about one-half krone and
the judge told the fighting farmers:
'With good luck it will take you only
eight hundred years to make the bush
pay.   Take good care of it.'"
to the hands of the packing houses,
which are now the distributing centers for meats. Packers can afford to,
and actually do pay higher prices antl
sell at lower values than the local
butchers for reasons which are obvious when one considers that profits
are represented by the by-products.
The packers are adverse to buying
dressed carcases as they represent
smaller profits in by-products. Again,
dressed carcases are imperfectly
handled by tlie farmers, the meat in
many cases being bruised and unsightly ; t.-.is, as well as improper
chilling, being deterrent to good
prices. Animals, especially hogs, require scientific chilling, otherwise
those paits which enter into the process of curing become sour and unfit
for market. PackerB prefer to buy
their meats on tlie .toof. and for the
reasons set forth above, are able to
pay higher prices for the same.
In view, however, of the large trade
carried on in some parts of Canada,
more particularly during the fall and
winter, in dressed perk, as well as in
other dressed meats, attention may be
directed  to  one  of  the  requirements
of the  regulations  made   under   the
new  Meat   Inspection   Act,   which   is
likely  to   have   a  considerable   effect
on the  business    above    referred to.
The Department of Agriculture at Ottawa   having   assumed   the   responsibility of inspecting   and   practically
guaranteeing tlie hcalthfulness of all
meats and meat products sent out by
the   packing  houses   must,   of   neces- j
���lity,  protect  itself   by   making  sure |
that no diseased carcases are permit-
ted to enter these establishments. The |
most effective way of preventing the i
entry  of  such  diseased  meat  is,   of:
course,   the   careful   antemortem   in-
spection provided for by the regiila-
tions, but, in view of the large trade 1
carried on in dressed carcases, and of I
the" fact that both farmers and packers have been in the habit of handling meats in this way, the officials j
in charge of the enforcement of the
ict   have   decided   to   admit   to   the j
establishment under inspection, dress-
id carcases under such conditions as j
will enable 'them to judge with reasonable certainty, as to whether the animal,    prior  to  slaughter,   was   free
from   disease.     Provision   has   therefore been made for the admission on
inspection  of  dressed  carcases,   with
the head, heart, lungs and liver held j
by  their  natural   attachments,   such ,
carcases to be inspected before entering the establishment, and   if   found
fit for food to be so marked and admitted for packing purposes, while if
found to be diseased, ta be condemned and tanked.
This being the case, it is incumbent
upon every farmer bringing dressed
hogs or other animals to market to
remember thnt unless the carcases are
dressed in accordance with the regulation mentioned above, namely, with
these organs left in their proper positions, it will not be possible for the
representatives of the packing houses
to buy such carcases for use in any of
the establishments comiijg under the
operation of the Meat and Canned
Goods Act.
The presence of the buyers or
agents of these establishments on our
local markets has always been, at least
to some extent a snfeguard against
possible attempts by local combina
tions of butchers and others to depress
the price of dressed meats, and it
will be well for producers to bear in
mind the new conditions, and when,
for any reasons, unable to market
their stock on hoof, hogs, as well as
other animals, in such a way as to
meet the requirements of the new
