ALAAMS, bowings anl low prostra-
onrself once again on the mercy of the
people of the Slocan. We're here because we're here, and being here we intend to take another whirl at the good
work, and, incidentally, try to g"it three
Biniares a day. Polities are too fashionable to be passed up, and so politics
will lie the principal diet this trip; but
we recommend caution to our Grit
friends, otherwise they might partake
too freely of the subjoined niedicino
and hit for the tall uncut to throw a fit.
There is no necessity for you to peruse
if you don't want to; yon may pass on
to tho ads. and ruminate upon who have
been faithful to us even almost unto
death, and those who havo tried to
starve us. We miss many names from
our advertising columns since we dwelt
in the Crow's Nest, and why? It is be-
causo we have exposed several discrepancies in the town's human and commercial make-up, and instead of being
hacked by the people whom we. pledged
ourselves to work for nil the time, they
many of them have not reciprocated by
renewing their eu'ib. Sucli is lite; but
we have no hard feelings.

Pei haps we are to blame for not conserving our own intprcsts. Perhaps it
would pay us better if we stood all the
time for hell, heaven and Number One!
However, we are here on d.*ck to stay
with the skip until tlie leak is mended,
and all our old passengers are aboard
and Bailing with us to Port Prosperity.
We have made big sacrifices in returning to the Lucerne, so we look to our
old subscribers and advertisers to see
that the paper is fed. But, enough of
ourselves; to the eiiliji ct.
Hansaid's Debates in the Canadian
Commons. Tho people of' Vancouver,
knew where to fix the blame, and
that's why they politically flopped and
turned a Liberal seat into a Conservative majority of 1521. Now do your
duly. 	
Men of Kootenay, be guided by the
men of the Coast, who vanquished tlie
Liberal Jardine at New Westminster,
who turned down Templeman at Victoria, and skinned M'lnnns np and
down at Vancouver. Those electors
know the intrigue, lock, stock and
barrel���f How tlieir leal, and do not be
bulldozed by Swift-Curtis.
"A White B.C.!" Glorious! But
what show lias Swift to do anything in

Goodeve expect to do ? we fancy we
can hear you say. Digest thi
Gooleve will join Martin Burrell,
Cowan, Barnard, and Taylor, a good
solid Conservative li. C. bunch, at
Ottawa, and from them will go up
such a howl for the total exclusion
of the Orientals, that Laurier will sit
up and take notice. They will have the
solid backing of the people of this
province, and Lauder's band will be
forced.   See the point?
a final knock-out blow to B.C.'s claim
and aggressive poli.*y, and went himself to London to g<-t his wish in the
matter ratified by the Imperial Government, did not MeBride dog his footstep,
to London, and whilst Laurier was being
feted and fawned upon hy the denizens
of Solio and a bunch of titled imbeciles,
MoBride.gathered around him a number of men of sterling ability, who
when the fight began in the IIouso at
Westminster, routed lhe enemy and
caused the words " final and irrevocable" to be struck out. That's how
Laurier lovea B.C.!! We make mention of it becausu Swift-Curtis in his
palpable anxiety to speak principally of
the subject ."dearest to bis heart���

Remember; the Ballot is secret!
Swift-Curtis conld acco mplisb nothing, bee mse ho dare not riso Ironi his
seat lo speak upon so important a subject without firBt obtaining permission
from his chief. We have a photograph
of Laurier giving Swift permission to
advocate so nothing he himself lias
deprecated!   Poor Curtis.
The G:it press liaH now ato'inthe
slogan of the Conservative, party, " A
White B.O." Goodevu's battle cry has
been pirated by Swift-Curtis. The
whole Liberal fabric is one big steal.
When retuiicd to power they began
by stealing the railway policy of the
grand obi Sir John A., and the habit
has grown on tbem. We hardly
though', however, that Swift-Curtis
would bo so tactless as to exhibit his
prowess in this direction quite so soon.
Of course you all know that Swift
tried to steal the credit of fathering the
Eight Hour Law. Shameful dtceit, Ihe
father of that Bill has gone to hia reward across tlie Great Divide. Swift
has cut that line out since lbe lie haB
heou nailed down.
What credit can the Liberals take for
endeavoring to secure "A White B C"?
When the streets oi Vancouver were
sprinkled with the blood of white men,
and Japs and Chinks ran amok recently,
did not the then member speed with
hot haste lo Ottawa to intercede with
Laurier to stem the flood of Asiatic and
Oriental immigration, and did not
Laurier turn his appeal down? Has
not Lemieux said in the House that he
is not in favor of a white B.C. ? All
the quibbling of Swift-Curtis cannot explain away that damning admission.
Anyone who cares may corroborate this
assertion   by   turning  lo page 2115 of

On tho other hand, Borden, the Conservative leader, is witb us on tlie the
" Total Exclusion " question. He bas

to purge the country of the yellow peril,
and it is uo to the working men of the
Kootenays, irrespective of creed or
politics, to strengthen hia bahdby sending a fit lieutenant in the person of A.
S. Goodeve. You will have accomplished something then for a noble cause!

Bubject to heart failure.    Pass on.
" Better Terms." Swift is religiously
silent upon this point! Full well he
knows that Laurier has thrown tho
harpoon into B.C. good and plenty,���
and so his whine for support is changed
to stagey anger because Goodeve whi'st
mayor of Rossland did his duty fcar-
)e sly like a man during a turbulen t
period. The present mayor of Rossland, a pervert from Socialism, and himself a laboring man, has come among
us to honor Mr. Goodcye and give the
lie direct to his detractors.
" Better Terms! " DU not Liuner
at the last Conference of Premiers tell
us just how ha felt upon the matter of
"Bettor Terms for Britisli Columbia? "
and did not Premier MeBride leave the
Conference in di'gust? What chance,
then, has a Liberal aggregation of doing
anything for this province. They would
be ia tbe same anomalous position as
was Duncan Ross, tbat of a suck thumb.
When Laurier aimed to have the words
"final and irrevocable" inserted into

Tho " Kootenay Liberal," that rabid

applies to the Libera! postmaster-gen-

us what he can't do, and we'll back old
Bill Hunter to do it.

NEW DENVER, B.C.
When Bill Galliher, the late Liberal
member, stumped the Kaslo riding, he
pledged his word to the people of the
Lardeau that he would oppose with all
his might the C.P.R.'s renewal of the
extension of the A. & K. Charier. Tlie
people of that distiict are particularly
anxious to have tlie C.P.R. fulfil the
terms of the charter and at least extend tlieir system from Geirard to
Trout Lake City. Trout Lake is icebound from two to three months every
year, and all communication by tlio
south is thus cut off. It was cn the
promise given that he managed to defeat ex-Governor Mackintosh.
But what did he do? The traitor
went down to Ottawa, and inconceivable
as it appears, 'twas lie who presented
the bill on beha'f of the C.P.R. for tbe
extension of time. Proof, you want I
Step into our sanctum, and we will be
happy to introduce you to Hansard
containing tlie debate on the bill. Thus
are the interests of the people conserved by corporation lawyers. B'g Bill
has never shown bis face in the Lardeau from that day to this. That is
one reason why he was afraid to come
to Kootenay and take Iris medicine.
But what has this to do with Smilh-
Curtis ? Hold ou to vour timber a
minute and we'll show you. The C.P.R.
will apply again for an extension of the
charter we mentioned, and others.
They have other monkey business to
put through the house, nnd they need
tbe services of a Lawyer from the
Kootenay to work for them at Ottawa.
Vote for Curtis and get it ill the neck
from the C.P.R.
Lest any should sny we aro talking
through our hat, we append the following dialogue that took place upon the
platform at Smith-Curtis' public meeting at Creston recently, the accuracy of
which we wil!make an affidavit to:

Curtis���Eh, eh, eh, what's that?
Queston was repented.
Curtis���I, I don't understand you.

ear, Jay-Jay; slay with him.
Curtis then held a hurried conpulta-
with the oilier oocupant of the platform
who, bv thc way, is also a lawyer.

In a moment and running up and down
like a slenthhound, noting a hundr-r.
things which eveu Amos would ha*!
overlooked. He circled round ths
bodies again and again; theu he ran
a little way toward the edge of tbe
woods aud then came back to the charred ruins of the blockhouse.
"There ls no sign of the women and
children," snid lie. "They are keeping
the children to burn at tlieir leisure In
their villages. The women they may
torture or may adopt, as the humo:
takes them."
"Ask him, Amos," said the seaman,
"why we are yawing and tacking
here when we should he cracking or
nil sail to stand lifter them."
Du Lhut smiled and shook bis head.
'Your friend Is a brave man," said he,
"it ho thinks that with four men wt
can follow a l_undred and fifty."
"Tell hlm, Amos, that tho Lord will
bear us up," said the other excitedly.
'Say that be will bo with us against
the children of Jeroboam, aud we will
cut them off utterly."
But Du Lhut waved aside tlie seaman's suggestions. "Wc must have a
care uow," said he, "or we shall lose
our own scalps and be the cause of
those at Ste. Marie losing theirs ns
well."
"Ste. Marie!" cried De Catinat. "I*
there, then, danger at Ste. Marie?"
"Aye, they are in the wolf's mouth
now. This business was done last
night. The place wns stormed hy a
war party of a hundred and fifty men.
This morning they left and went north
upon foot. They hnvexbeen cached
among the woods all day between Poitou and Ste. Marie."
"Then we have come through them?"
"Yes, we have come through them.
They would keep their camp today
and send out scouts. Brown Moose
and his son were among them and
struck our trail.    Tonight"���
"Tonight they will attack Ste. Ma.
rle!"
"It Is possible. And yet with so
small a party I should scarce have
thought that they would have dared.
Well, we can but hasten back as quickly as we can and give them warning
of what is hanging over them."
And so they turned for their weary
backward journey, though tlieir minds
were too full to spare a thought upou
tho leagues whicli lay behind them or
those which were before.
Dark as It was, Du Lhut walked as
swiftly as during the Bunligbt and
never hesitated about the track. Hla
comrades could see, however, that he
was taking them a different way from
that which they had gone in the morning, for twice they caught a sight of
the glimmer of the broad river upou
their left, whilo before they had only
seen the streams which flowed Into It
On the Beeond occasion he pointed to
where on tho farther side they couid
seo dark shadows.
"Iroquois canoes," he whispered.
"There are ten of them, with eight
men In each.   They are another party."
"How do you know that they are
nnolher party?"
"Because we bnve crossed tho trull
of tho flrst within the hour."
De Catinat was tilled witb amazement at this marvelous mau who could
hear In his sloop and could detect a
trail when the very tree trunks were
invisible to ordinary eyes. Du Lhut
belted a little to watch the canoes uml
then turned his back to the river and
plunged into tbo wooils once HI**', tfit
til they came to the edge of a moonlit
clearing. Du Lhut wns about to skirt
this, ns he hnd done others, when sud>
de'ily he cn light De Catlnat by the
shoulder and pushed him down behind
a clump of sumac, while Amos did the
same with Ephraim Savage.
A man wns walking dowu the other
side of the open space. He bnd Just
emerged and was crossing It diagonally, making lu the direction of the river. His body was bent double, but ns
he came out from the shadow of the
trees they could see that he was an
Indian bravo In full war paint, with
leggings, loin clotb and musket. Close
nt his heels came a second, and then a
third and a fourth, on and ou, until It
seemed as If the wood was full of men
and that the line would never come to
an ond. Last of all came a man In the
fringed tunic of a hunter, with a cap
and feather upon his bead. Ho passed
across like the others, and they vanished Into the shadows, It was live
minutes beforo Du Lhut thought It
Safe to rise from their shelter.
"By Ste. Anne!" ho whispered. "Did
you count them?"
"Three hundred nnd ninety-six," said
Amos.
"I mnde It 402."
"And you thought that there were
only n hundred and fifty of thenil"
cried De Catinat.
"Ah, you do not understand. This It
a fresh hand. The others who took the
blockhouse must be over there, for
tlieir trail lies between us and tha
river. In their en nip there aro now
nearly COO warriors, Unless we warn
them nt Ste. Marie these devils will lay
some trap for them. Their parties are
assembling by land nnd hy water, and
there mny be a thousand before day.
break. We must push on aud give our
warning."
"They hnd one who was dressed like
a white man," remarked Amos.
"Aye, nnd the most deadly of the lot
Ills father was a Dutch trader, his
mother an Iroquois, and he goes by the
name of the Flemish Bastard. By Ste.
Anne, I have a score to settle with hlm,
nnd I may pay it beforo this business
*s over."
CHAPTER XXII.
DAY was just breaking as the
four comrades entered the gate
of the stockade, but early as It
was the eeusltalres and their
families were all afoot. De Cathmt
hurst through the throng and rushed
upstairs to Adele, who had herself
flown down to meet him, so that they
met In each other's arms. Together,
ffljh his arm arouud her, they ascended
io me great nan.
"Ah, monsieur," said tbe old nobleman, with his courtly bow, "I am Indeed rejoiced to see you safe under my
roof again, not only for your own sake,
but for that of madame. You are
doubtless hungry and weary. When
you are yourself again, I must claim
iny revenge In piquet, for the cards lay
ngainst me the other night."
But Du Lhut had entered at De Catlnat's heels with his tidings of disaster.
"You will have another game to play,
M. de Ste. Marie," said he.   "There are
000 Iroquois In the woods, and they ara
preparing to attack."
"Tut, tut! We cannot allow our arrangements to be altered by a haiulf*'
of savages," said the seigneur. "I must
apologize to you, my dear De Cutinnt.
that you should be annoyed by sueh
people while you are upon my estate.
Now, when I played piquet last with
De Lannes of Poitou"���
"De Lannes of Poitou is dend, and all
bis people," said Du Lhut. "The blockhouse is a heap of smoking ashes."
The seigneur raised his eyebrows.
"I always told him that his fort
would be taken unless he cleared away
those maple trees which grew up to the
very walls. They are all dead, you
say?"
"Every man."
"And the fort burned?"
"Not a stick wns left standing."
"Have you seen these rascals?"
"We saw the trail of a hundred and
fifty. Then there were a hundred in
canoes, and a war party of 400 passed
us under the Flemish Bastard. Their
camp Is five miles down the river, and
there cannot be less thau GOO."
"You are fortunate in escaping
them."
"But they were not so fortunate in
escaping us. We killed Brown Moose
and his son."
"Excellent! Excellent!" said the
seigneur, clapping gently witb his
dainty hands. "You havo done very
well indeed, Du Lhut You nre, I presume, very tired?"
"I nm uot often tired."
"Then perhaps you would pick a few
men nud go back into the woods to see
what these villains are doing?"
"I sball he ready lu five minutes."
"Perhaps you would like to go also,
Achllle?"
His son's dark eyes and Indian face
lit up.
"Yes, I shall go also," he answered.
"Very good. And we shall make all
ready iu your absence. Madame, you
will excuse these little annoyances
which mar the pleasure of your visit.
Next time that you do me the honor to
come here I trust that we shall have
cleared all these vermin from my estate. You will excuse me now, as there
nre one or two things which demand
my attention. De Catlnat, you nre n
tried soldier, and I should be glad of
your advice."
It was bright daylight now, and the
square Inclosure within the stockade
was filled with an anxious crowd who
hnd just learned the evil tidings. Thi
scouting party under Du Lhut and
Achllle de la None hnd already left,
and at the orders of the seigneur the
two gates were now secured with huge
bars of oak fitted into iron staples on
either side. The children were placed
In the lower storeroom with a few
women to watch them, while tho others were told off to attend t^o the fire
buckets and to reload the muskets.
Tho men had been paraded, fifty-two
of them in all, and they were divided
Into parties now for the defense of
each part of the stockade. On one
side it had heen built up to within a
few yards of the river, which not only
relieved them from the defense of that
face, but enabled Iheni to get fresh
wnter by throwing a bucket at lhe end
of a rope from the stockade. The
boats and canoes of Ste. Marie were
drawn up on the bank just under the
wall nnd were precious now as offering a last means of escape should all
else fail. The next fort, St. Louis, was
but a few leagues up the river, and
De la Noue hnd already sent a swift
messenger to them with news 'of Ihe
danger. At least it would bo a point
on wliich they might retreat should the
worst come to tho worst
And thnt the worst might come to
lhe worst wus very evident to so experienced a woodsman ns Amos Green.
He hnd left Ephraim Savage snoring
In a deep sleep upon the floor nnd was
now walking round the defenses with
his pipe in his mouth, examining with
u critical eye every detail In connection with them. The stockade was
very strong, nine feet high and closely
built of oak stnkes, which were thick
enougli to turn a bullet. Halfway up
it was loopholcd in long, narrow slits
for the fire of the defenders. But, on
Ihe other hand, the trees grew to within a hundred yards of it and formed n
screen for tho attack, whilo the garrison was so scanty that It could not
spare more than twenty men at Hie
utmost for ench face. His face darkened ns ho thought of tbo young wife
who had como so fur In (heir sufe
keeping nnd of the women und children whom he had seen crowding Into
lho fort
"Would It not be better If you could
send them up tho river?" be suggested
to the seigneur.
"I should very gladly do so, monsieur, and perhaps, If wo nre all alive,
wo mny manage It tonight if the
weather should lie cloudy, but I can-
not spnre the men to guard them and
1 cannot send them without a guard
when wo know that Iroquois canoes
are on the river."
"You nro right. It would bo mad*
*icss."
"I hnve stationed you on (he custom
fnco with your friends and with flf,
teen men. M. de Catiuat, will you
command the party?"
"Willingly."
"I will tnko the soutli fnce, as It
Seems to ho tho point of danger. Du
Lhut enn tuke the north, nnd live men
should bo enough to watch the river
side."
"Have wc food nnd powder?"
"I have flour and smoked eels enough
to seo this matter through. As to powder, we huve nil our trading stores to
draw upon."
"Wo huve not time to cleur any of
these trees?" nsked the soldier.
"Impossihle. They would make better cover down."
"But nt lenst I might clenr that patch
of brushwood round the birch sapling
which lies between the cast face and
the edge of the forest. It Is good cover
for thulr- sbii'tjilahcira."
"Yes; that should be fired without
delay."
"Nay; I think thnt I might do better," said Amos. "We might bait a
irap for them there. Where is this
powder of which you spoke?"
"Theuriet, the major domo, is giviug
��ut powder in the main storehouse."
"Very   good."    Amos   vanished   up-
Itairs and returned with a large linen
bag In  his  hand.   This  he filled with
powder, und then, slinging it over his
ihoulder, he curried it out to the clump
jf bushes and placed it ut the base of
!he sapling, cutting a strip out of the
bark    immediately    above   the    spot
Then with u few leafy brunches und
fallen  leaves  he covered tho  powder i
lag  very  carefully   over,  so  that  it
looked  like  n  littlo   hillock  of earth.
iiiiving arranged all to his satisfaction,
io returned.

collars there aro guy little bows of

THE NEW  TOWELS.
Scalloped Ends More Fashionable
Than a Fringed Finish.
The woman who Is deft with her
needlo mny indulge in pretty towels,
whether her purse is long or not, for
there ls no end of bund work used to
benutlfy towels in these dnys. One of
the prettiest methods and nt the same
time one of the most practical ls scalloping. Tho plain liucknbnck Is got and
the ends done in (he simplest form of
6cnllop, heavily padded. With a quarter (o mark tho scallops and a lino
drawu across tbo end to keep them
even, (he marking may be done at
home. Instead of tbe fringe so pop-
ulnr a few years ago, mnny of the
handsomest towels are finished with
a hemstitched hem or with embroidery or with Irish lace, although the
latter is very expensive. The very
lnrge towels nre out of fashion, the
favorite size being nbout twenty-five
Inches wide by forty long. Hand
towels come In several sizes, the smallest of which is fourteen inches wide
and twenty-four long. Drawn wor.
as a trimming for towels offers no
merous possibilities to the woman who
can do it well, nnd so does embroidery work. Both Irish and German embroidery are popular. All embroidery
Is of the variety known as blind, and
the designs are not too elaborate.
Chicken a 1a  Marengo.
As the main course nt a luncheon
nothing could be moro delectable than
this way of preparing chicken, which
is said to hnve lieen first mnde for the
great Nnpoleon after the battle of Mn-
rengo.
Ills chef hnd to depend on the materials which tho country afforded, and
it would seem that he could have done

been nt his command.
Singe nnd clean n live pound chicken,

towel and cut It up as for fricassee
In a saucepan melt a very full table,
spoonful of butler and mid three tabic*
spoonfuls of the best olive oil.

the chicken nnd cook for five minutes
Then add thc White ment, with salt
and pepper and a little garlic, if desired.
Mix aud stir over a good fire and
cook for twenty minutes until each
piece of tbo chicken Is a light golden
brown.
Have rendy n tomato sauce made
from a cun of tomatoes, a little onion,
carrot, parsley nnd celery, which have
been cooked until thick, then rubbed
through a sieve mid a tablespoonful ef
butter added.

fresh mushrooms, peeled nnd stemmed,
and cook for live minutes.
Arrnng. tlio chicken on a platter, add
to the gravy In tho pun three tablespoonfuls of the tomato puree, stir until It is hot, but do uot nllow It to boll,
pour over the chicken and serve.
Test of Vision.
The Pleiades hnve long formed an
interesting test of vision. To ordinary eyesight six stars are visible, but
keen eyed persons see seven and even
eleven or moro. Reporting late observations, P. Vincart, an Antwerp
astronomer, mentions counting thirteen Pleiades with the naked eye.

AIRSHIP FLEET.
Germany Now Boasts Six Dirigible
Aerial   Cruisers.
Germany's fleet of "air cruisers.'"
or dirigible airships, will, it is proudly announced, presently number six:
Count Zeppelin's III., rigid type.
Count Zeppelin's IV., rigid type,
which has done n twelve-hour flight
and will bo taken over by the Government with No. III. for $100,000
after a twenty-four-hour test.
Major Gross's nrmy airship, half-
rigid.
Motor Airship Study Society's old
airship,  non-rigid.
Major von Pursevnl's non-rigid ship
building fer the nbove society.
New airship, of which details are
kept secret, nearly ready at the works
of the Siemcns-Schuekert Electric
Company.
The first announcement of the last-
named airship was given several
months ago. The company has engaged a celebrated military aeronaut,
Captain von Krogh, as commander
of the vessel. The Study Society's
new non-rigid ship~wi���ll be sold to the
War Office as soon as she has completed her trial trips.
The army will then possess three
dirigibles, each representing one of
the threo opposed types of construction���rigid, half-rigid, and non-rigid
���with a view to arriving at a oon-
olusion on their merits.
Herr Rudolf Martin, author of
books on war in the nir, and "Is a
World-War Imminent?" points out
how England is losing her insular
character by tho development of airships and aeroplanes.
"In a world-war," he said to me,
"Gormany would hnve to spend two
hundred millions sterling in motor-
airships, and a similar nmount in
aeroplanes, to transport 350,000 men
in half an hour during the night
from Calais to Dover. Even to-day
the landing of a large Gorman nrmy
in England is a mere matter of
money. I nm opposed to a war between Germany and England, but
should it break out to-day, it would
last at least two years, for we would
conclude no peace, until a German
army had occupied London.
How Emp3ror William  Rests.
It soems that the German Emperor
is in the habit of hnving a slight
meal overy two hours, says The Gentlewoman. His incessant activity
makes it necessary, and his example
is followed by most of his suite who
would otherwise be unable to do all
that is demanded of them.
The Empress also, when the Emperor is "on parade," has freque.it
refreshment during the day. The
Kaiser also keeps two hours of the
day, when possible, to rest; from 2
to 4 o'clock he is not to be disturbed
'���vhen at home. Otherwise he is th.
���iitire day occup'ed either with busi-
ess or pleasure. He retires to rest
ate and is up n ;ain the next morn-
ng at 5 o'clock.

Then let Dr. A. W. Chase's Kidney-

Let urine stiind for twenty-four
hours and if at the end of thnt time
there nre deposits of a brick dust

Another very marked symptom of

of their direct and combined notion
on both liver and bowels these pills
cure the most complicated cases.

RATTLESNAKES' TEETH.
If You Should Happen to Get Any,
Handlo Them With Caro.
The zoo keeper carefully unfolded a
���mall paper packet, wliich looked as il
tt might contain a headache powder.
"Waut a rattlesaake's tooth?" he inquired.
"Tooth?"
"Well, call It a fang if you want to,
but ain't there something iu the good
book about 'sharper than a serpent's
tooth?' Look at this oue aiid you'll
thiuk that the old fellow that wrote
that must bave known what he was
talking about."
He opened the paper and showed
what seemed like a miniature horn,
it was shaped like a cow horn, which
has only one curve. It was yellowish
white, like a discolored tooth.
It was about three-quarters of an
Inch long and a sixteenth of an inch
In diameter at thc base, where it
seemed as if it had beeu broken off.
The point was as sharp as a needle.
An eighth of an Inch hack of the point,
on the outer curve of the toqtb, was
an opening, the end of a sort of tube,
which ran the whole length of the
tooth.
This little channel through thc tooth
seemed to be full of a dried substance,
which thc zoo keeper evidently regarded with proper suspicion, for lie wiirn-
ed the recipient of the tooth to handle
the same with care. lie did not think
that one would get a true case of snake
bite from one of these discarded teeth,
but if the skin should be scratched or
pierced hy it a bad sore would probably result
According to him, the keepers at the
zoo often pick up these loose teeth In
the snake cages. They are apparently
shed ln the course of natural changes,
something as thc serpent sheds his
skin. They are uot merely the snake's
baby teeth, for he sheds them moro
than once.

SOME BLIND WONDERS.
Remarkable   Feats   Have   Been   Performed   by  Sightless   Men.
Manchester has just been the scene
of the Second Triennial International
Conference on the Blind and Exhibition. In the latter is exhibited work
dune by the sightless ��� for which
prizes are offered���and apparatus and
machines for the education and use
al the blind.
Perhaps it is the very magnitude of
his affliction wliich has made the
blind man fight so fiercely against
the darkness which encompasses him.
At any rate, in all ages of the world
���from the blind poet Homer, down
through Milton, and the great Wind
Postmaster Fawcett���one finds sightless persons who have climbed to
the top of the ladder of human
achievement.
One of the subjects for discussion
ai the conference was, "Kecfea-
tions for the Blind," the lecturer being Dr. Campbell, himself blind. Yet
Dr. Campbell can ride and row and
cycle. Incredible as it may appear
he has actually climbed to the summit of Mont Blanc���a feat that many
a sighted  person  is proud of.
Four years ago, a blind man���Mr.
Jncob Snape���walked across England
from Blackpool to Margate���n distance of about four hundred and sixty
miles.
There has been more than one blind
barrister. Of these, tho most wonderful was Mr. George Summers Griffiths. Called in 1852, he had become
known ns the champion verdict-getter, when, in the early eighties, he
lost his sight.
Yet he refused to give up bis. profession, and, being gifted with an extraordinary memory, he very soon became almost ns successful as ever.
We hnve a blind magistrate, in the
person of Mr. Qeorge Smith, who acts
in that, capacity for the Holland
Division of Lincolnshire; nnd also a
blind Parliamentary candidate. Ear*
lj in thc pi��sent yenr, Mr. Walker
King, of Exeter, a blind man, was
selected as Liberal candidate for West
Somerset to oppose Sir Aclnnd-Hood
at the next election. Mr. King unsuccessfully contested Taunton in
1900.
A blind marvel whom many Londoners have watched with incredulous
astonishment is the colored stage dancer Walker who early in the present
yenr, was appearing at several London  music-halls.
Walker was suddenly blinded by
atrophy of the optic nerve. Whnt to
do he knew not. He nearly went mad
wilh misery. Then it suddenly struck
him that he might still dance. His
oyes looked right enough. Perhaps
the managers need not know of his
affliction.
Will it bo believed that for eighteen
months he earned his living in the
Old way, without anyone but his wife
knowing that he was blind In his
simplicity, he never imagined that n
blind comedian could bo worth his
pay. Now, however, he appears
frankly as blind.
Walker's feats call to mind those
of the celebrated "Blind Jnek" ol
Alderney. Jack lost his eyesight in
America, through a tree falling on
him. He came home to Alderney, and
made a living by running messages,
chiefly for the soldiers at Fort Albert.
One dark night two Tommies, coming up the cliff-path from the bench
below tho fort, lost tlieir way, fell,
and lay badly bruised on a little-
ledge half-way between cliff-top and
sea.
Tn the blackness they could not be
seen, and none dared go to their rescue. Up came Blind Jack. He lis-
tenod a moment, then cooly swung
over the edge, and the terrified watchers heard his nailed boots clinking
from ledge to ledge. In a very short
timo he reached the men, and guided
them back to the path. Thence they
reached the bench, and same up safely by nnother way.
No longer ngo than April Inst, a
blind man performed an equally heroic feat. One night the Hotel Victoria, nt Richmond, Yorkshire, took
fire. The proprietor, Mr. John Jackson, who is blind, rushed through
the flumes, rescued his son, and, carrying the boy, managed to climb down
the back of the building to safety.
Awards  to  Spinsters.
A quaint custom has been observed
in connection with Holsworthy fair,
which closed recently, in the awarding of a money prize to a young
woman "generally esteemed as the
most deserving, most handsome and
most noted for her quietness and attendance  at church."
Miss Rosa Basset was selected for
the honor of fulfilling all these requirements, and became the possessor
of ��2 10, in accordance with a singular bequest of a former rector.
Under the same will the sum of
five shillings is annually given to the
spinster over 60 years of age who "is
noted for the like virtues, and is not
in receipt of parish pay." This gift
was presented to Miss Ching.
It is three years since any award
was made of this money, spinsters
being very scarce at Holsworthy.
Sacred  Geese of Rome.
The tradition of the "sacred geese
of old Rome" is that when the Gauls
invaded Rome a detachment, in single file, climbed up the hill of the
capital so silently that the foremost
man roachod the top without being
challenged. But while he was striding over thn rampart some Bacred
gnese, disturbed by the noise, began
to cacklo and thus awoke tho garrison. Marcus Mnnlius rushed to thc
wall and burled the fellow over the
precipice. To commemorate the
event the Romans carried a golden
goose in procession to the capitol
every year.

Varying His Method.
The porch climber hesitated.
"I'm only doing this," he muttered, "because getting in on the ground
floor has never made any money for
me in a business way. and it's up
to me to get even with the world
somehow."
Convincing himself by this specious
reasoning, he softly pushed up the
window and climbed inside.

A medicine that will keep children
well is a great boon to every mother.
This is just what Baby's Own Tablets
do. An occasional dose keeps the little stomach nnd bowels right, nnd
prevents sickness. During the not
weather months stomach troubles
speedily turn to fatal diarrhoea or
cholera infantum and if a medicine
like Baby's Own Tnblets is not nt
hand the child may die in a few hours.
The wise mother will always keep a
box of Tablets in the house and give
them to her childrcr-^occasionally to
clear out the stomach and bowels and
keep them well. Don't wait until the
child is sick���the delay mny cost a
precious little life. G,et the Tablets
now nnd you mny feel reasonably safe.
Every mother who uses these Tablets
praises them and that is the best evidence that there is no other medicine
for children so good. And the mother
has the guarantee of a government
analyst that the Tnblets contain no
opiate or harmful drug. Dealers sell
the Tablets nt 25 cents n box or you

A  GERMAN   SATmt.
The Forgotten Life and the Sad Fate
of the  Herring,
The experiments of men of science
sometimes furnish amusement to those
who are uot particularly interested In
the slow, minute and apparently insignificant investigations by meaus of
which important physical facts are
learned. It is interesting to know that
if we cut off the tails of forty successive generations of mice at their
birth not one mouse, even In the fourth
generation, will be born without a tall.
But wbeu the man of science was engaged iu cuttiug off the baby mice's
tails all the world laughed at bim.
The slow experiments to test the possibility that hy degrees an aulmal may
change its habitat���a land animal taking to water, nnd so .on���were thus
amusingly satirized In Germany:
Some time ago Ilerr Professor Schlit*
zer, the eminent biologist who la making experiments relative to the change*
of habitat made by animals, captured
a live herring. He took the fish home
and kept It in a large vat ot salt water. Every morning the professor dipped out of this vat half a teaspoonful
of salt water and replaced It with an
equal amount of fresh water.
The herring survived and passed his
days apparently in the best of spirits.
In tbe course of lime the water lu tho
tank wns rendered completely fresh.
Not a grnln of suit was left In IL And
still the herring remained cheerful and
lu good health. Next tho herr professor began to deprive the fish, little
by little, of the fresh water element
ln which he lived. In this also he was
successful, and afler a time the herring
gamboled around lu a perfectly dry
tank.
Tbe berr professor next put the fisb
In a birdcage, and the Intelligent creature continued to thrive. But one day
the berr professor noticed that something seemed to be tbe matter with
his pet
lie hud forgotten to give It anything
to drink.
Thereupon he put a dlsb of water in
tbe cage.
Tbo next morning, when the hcrr
professor came to look at bis fish, a
melancholy sight met bis gaze. The
herring had fallen bead flrst into the
dish of water aud bad been drowned.

A Turk's Consideration For tha
Brute's  Future Owner.
There had come with us from Hebron
a Turkish soldier riding a young camel
whose virtues he boasted and indeed
exhibited���the clean limbs, the stride
and the docility of the beast. It seemed a worthy camel���a camel of excel-
leut btiinor and of disguished promise
���aud it was much coveted by the way.
At night, as the custom Is, the man
was used to sleeping close to bis beast,
the winds belug chill, but now at Ra-
flell, while tbe mules were unloading
and the cook was Hoaxing his fire, ho
tethered the camel, flung bis snddle on
the sand and went off to tho mud barracks to hobnob with the Egyptian
frontier guard. 1 was presently
alarmed by the cook's outcry and a
rising excitement In camp. The docile
camel was viciously trampling his master's saddle, stupidly believing that he
was engaged iu his master's murder���
a savage and dreadful attack, a rearing
and heavy plunge.
"What!" ejaculated the Turk when
he was Informed of this. "Have I cherished a mau killer?"        ���
The camel was heartily beaten and
reduced to bis knees, whereupon his
doubled fore leg was tied so that be
could rise but wilh difficulty, and we
withdrew to observe his behavior, for
his master was not yet convinced. Rise
he did, a persistent, silent effort, and
cautiously approached the saddle, which
he attacked as savagely as before, but
now wltb one hoof.
"1 have had a narrow escape," said
the Turk. "My camel would have
killed nie toulght. By God and Mohammed, the prophet of God," he
swore, "1 will sell the beast in the
bazaar at Beersheba."
I Inquired concerning the future owner's prospect of long life.
"He ls In God's hnnds," was the answer.���Norman Duncan ln Harper's
Magazine.

Work Begun on Molly Hughes
It is cheering to see mining in the
New Dmvcr camp take a legitimate
turn for tho bi'ttcr. Although New
Denver is lhe hub ot the SlocaU Mining Division, then, have been none of
the minos within a short Etroll from
tbc_town working for romo time. For
tunes have been gle.inod from the surface of this old camp of Eldorado, but
the amount of development work dime,
}n comparison with the ore taken out,
is a standing reproach to the men who
made easy money and then departed
wbeu deep mining was necessary.
The Molly Hughes, a group of claims
lying at the junction of the galena and
dry ore bolts of ihe Slocan, has been
taken over entjrely M. Zattoni, the
jnan whose good fortune at the Reco is
on everybody's tongue, nnd it is to be
hoped that a similar reward will crown
his efforts at the Molly Hughes. The
mine has always been a eouroe of profit
ior its previous owners, a New Denver
syndicate, and Mr. Zattoni has secured
it at.what must be considered a nominal cost.
Frank Shatter took a crew of eight
men lo tho Molly Hughes this morning,
and mining operations will be begun
right away. One shift will continnn the
