for each unit of zinc over 10 per cent.
This in itself is also reasonable, as the
more zinc the greater are the losses in
smelting. But how about the ore
which contains little or no zinc ?
You are charged for 10 units of zinc in
the 10 per cent, lead and 6 per cent,
silver deductions, which in this case
should be onlv 5 and 1% respectively.
Either the zinc penalty clause must be
made quid pro quo or oe abolished. The
former is to my mind the best solution.

in excess of 10 uniis will be debited with
60 cents per ton, while each unit under

To the Edilor of the Slocan Mining
Review, Sandon.
Dear Sir,���Two articles which appeared in your issue of March 21st interested mc greatly. The first was Mr.
Nelson's letter to boost the Slocan, and
the other was your htlle Fmcltcr problem. Somehow, I was struck with the
contrast between them ; tbe Bhort query
" Why is this" at tho end of tho smelter
problem seemed to tne a good one to
keep in view before boosting the country.
I am of opinion that the mining industry populated the Slocan and its
decay depopulated it. Don't you think,
Mr. Editor, we should enquire closely
into the reasons for this decay before
starting. What can we say to visitors
to account for the desolation visible in
all our towns���deserted villages in every
sense ol tbe word���with grass growing
np in the middle of our principal
thoroughfares? WE MUST TRACE
THERE BE A REMEDY, or abandon
the c.untry as others have done if there
is none. People who are not conversant,
with our country and iis resources will
tell rs that the country is prospected out mid that tbo leads don't go
down. If there was any truth in either
contentions, then no remedy is possible.
But we all know.what is the cause of
the depression, and knowing it and suffering from the cause, I Fee no renson
why we shouldn't screech aloud the
facts of Ih* cinch game being practised
on us. Mr. Editor, the depopulation
of the 8100,111 lies at the doors of the
���melieis. Tho excessive rates charged
by lhe smelters for smelting our ores
has crusiird the ambition out of many
leasers and the life out of a struggling
Tnke the case sated in your pro' lem.
You show, d, and I concur with yoi*,
(hat 50 pei cent of the g os* value bo-
long d to the smelter when prices wore
lor. The shippers half had to hear all
the costs of bring!' g the whole down to
the car, such as mining, rauhiding, etc.
Now, what does this mean exactly ? ]
Well, when prices are at their best, all !
Ilie lead ore you can show in a mine
belongs t) the smeller, mid as prices
drop they take more and more of the
s.lvvr as will. How can nc expect
capital to come in to help us under
these conditions? Would you buy a
lllino knowing ihat somebody else will
get a half interest out of all the work
you do ? Now, is this smelter burden
which all of us havo to bear a legitimate
and a just one? I am strongly of
opinion that it is not, aid that every
effort made to lighten it is a direct
benefit to the Slocan district. We have
been tohl repeatedly that the conditions
are such in B.C. Ihat smelting cannot
bee inducted as cheaply ai in the U.S.
Ingiills of Zinc Oouim ssion icport (amu
was the last 1i point this out, but inst. ad of enlightening us with reasons
why this should be he side-tracked the
Issue and puffed the smelter interests
hy assuring us Ihat the " one cent per
pound reduction wns not a CLEAR
gain." Whither the gain is clear or
but par.ially so, this one per cent re
duetto*, from our poor profits is tlie
damned st piece of daylight thieving
winked at on this continent.
Looking al the smeller problem from
the general point of view, we find that
one of the smellers produces lead ami
copper. The cost of the production of
lend in this smelter is higher than in
any other part of the world (deduced
f.om the sin-.her charges and previous
costs oil oro), whilo the lead oro is
superior in grade and elasi lo that of
many other districts, where it is produced much cheaper. The cost of the
production of copper on the oilier hand
in the same smelter has no equal anywhere for cheapness, notwithstanding
lhe fact, that the oies treated are about
the lowest grade ever smelted. The only
conclusion is that the lead industry of
the Slocin has been, is, and will be
exploited for the benefit of the copper
industry unless steps are taken to find
a remedy,
In detail the smelter charges are
divided into regular and irregular
charges. The regular charges compiise
the freight and treatment, rate and the
10 per cent, lead deduction and 5 p.e.
silver deduction for the smelter losses ;
the irregular charges ar,) the 1 cent per
lb. (lediicion of the lad and the zinc
p-nalty clause.
In go d practise the smelter losses are
about 5 p.e. lead and 2Jj per cent silver,
some of which is recovered in the flues
as dust. Slocan ores contain more zinc
than is admitted in the best practise,
and this makes the looses greater;
therefore the 10 par rent, lead and 5 per
cent, silver deduction*, which taken by
10 units will be credited with tho same i know nothing of excessiv    freight lates,
amount." of the sleal being  perpetrated by the
The one cent, per lb. deduction is the smelter bunco-steering moiiopo'y, o
mo't obnoxious feature of the whole I many other unfair conditions which
business.   The majority of us lliink it is ! when remedied will   bring these vlllfiera
a fixed and coin tint charge, but it is
not to the shipper. It varies with the
price of lead. As lead was a year or two
ago it represented a 50 per cent, deduction. Now it is only about half that. Do
you see what this means ? Let me
translate it into simple language:
Yes, Mr. Smelterman; we agree that
you should take 35 per cent, of our
lead for your so-called refining charges
when prices aro good, but when pries
go down we can only agree to give you
50 per ceu*. of oir lead for refinery
charges, became then ihere is letf.il possibility of us making our mines pay.
In conclusion, Mr. Editor, I am of
opinion that all tho c who have the interests of the S!ocan at heart have their
work cut out for them before we can
reasonably boost the country for others.
Yours, etc.,
Slocan, B.C., BEDROCK.

The following fiuttoiinj editorial from
the Nelson Canadian tells the feelings
of the Slocan to a nicety :
Wm. Huntrr, M.L.A. f u* Slocan,
has earned the (���ratitude of his constituents of SI .can Ciiy. Recognising
his own inexperience as a legislator and
his weakness as an orator, Mr, Hunter
enlisted the ai.l of tlie piemier himself
in securing the adoption of mcasims
which will enable the citizens of Slooan
to lehabililate their town financially.
There is nothing showy about William
Hunter, hut his intelligence, business
experience, and his unquestionable iii-
t.grily, will make him one of the most
trusted and valuable members of the
provincial house.
J. J. Fingland, assayer and chemist, has undertaken for us lo clussify
and as far as possible valuate, any min
cral or rock specimens wo may furnish
him. Mr. Fingland holds certificate..
from the West of
College for geology, mineralogy ami
mining, and his practical experience
includes an extended and valuable research among tho ores and rocks of this
mining division, lie also occupied lhe
position of assayer at tho Brockman
concentrator, Roseherry, B C, for sonn
time, and he left that position to commence business on Ids own behalf at
Sandon, having succeeded to the business of F. H. Hawkins.

J. H., New Denver:

matler and country rock. The first

low and ihe zi..c a little liinh. Its value
will depend on its silver contents and
the distance from t-hipp'ng point. Possibly the smelter might give a slight reduction in tieatmeiit, inte owing to the
high iron.

Your sample ariivrd too late for
identification this week.
The enclosing rock of Iho vein is black
slate. The vein structure is of the
usual lenticular type and quite irregular as to the lenath and thickness of the
lenzes. The ores present in the vein
arc galena, nvually adjacent to the* hanging wall,'blende, caUvte and quartz toward the foot wall. About 40 feet from
the face considerable vtiartz occurs in
the vein toward the foot wall fide and
continues to the face i f lhe I untie*], averaging about 8 feel, inthickress. Besting on the quartz is c.ilcite and a li'tle
galena, i inches to Cinches in thickness,
adjoining a roft gouco on the bunding

The Standard vein is said lo be the
same as the Alpha or a continuation of
tbe Alpha, the workings of which can
he seen on the mountain above. The
Alpha is raid to have been a large shipper for this district. The very steep
mountain road from Four Mile Creek
was built by the Alpha company in 1893,
and it is said about 3,000 tons has been
shipped over it. The end of the road is
connected with the lower tunnel of the
Alpha, by a 1,700 feet gravity tram.
As the Alpha property has not been
operated for several years, it was not
examined. I am, however credibly informed that the vein continues good in
the two main tunnels, ard that work
was suspended on account of personal
disagreement between the owners. The

is situated immediately below the Standard gioup.
The high grade lead of the Standard
mine carries Borne grey copper. The
Zinc-lead ore rejected from the shipments
now lying on the dump of No. 2 shows

Sum.lard mill", while only iif the prospect stage, gives promise of developing
into a good shipping property, both for

Going np this raise the pay streak  was

level was reached about 35 feet   above
the lower tunnel.     At this place the
vein made almost a right angle fold, extending   back flat   into  the   footwall
about 85 feet.   The raise continuing on

Kaslo, March 30���C. W. McAnn, K.
C, mayor of ICaslo, paosed away at a
quarter after six this evening.
Death was not unexpected as the deceased had heen very low for some weeks
past. Mr. McAnn had been ailing for
a number of years and last fall took a
severe turn for the worst. At that time
the exact nature of his ailment was not
fully known and was thought to Ie a
tumor. Soma mouths ago he went to
Roclies'or, Minn., for treatment under
the care of the Mayo brothers. Whilst
there he underwent a severe operation
and recovering somewhat, returnod to
Kaslo. On arriving here he continued
to improve and high hopes were entertained that ho ultimately would recover.
Later tho old trouble returned and he
again went lo Rochester. On his last
trip he was informed that his ailment
was incurable, and acting under the
physicians' advice he returned home.
His period of illness was a painful one,
hut with his indomitable will he bore
up cheerfully.
For about three weeks pnoltiio ��n,l
was looked for at any lime. His brother (ieorgo came from Moncton, N. I!.,

a graduate of the university of Mount
Allison and Ann Harbor, Mich. He
came to to Kaslo 15 years ago and has

history of the town, having served five
terms as mayor. Politically he was a
staunch Conservative and had it not
been for the serious nature of his illness
ho would have been the unanimous
choice of the party at the lale election.
He leaves a widow and three children

Resolution of Condolence.
The following Resolutions of Condo-
ence touching upon the deaths of John
A. Caldwell, Jacob Emails and Until-

regular meeting of Sandon Miners'
Union here on March 23rd, 100".
Whereas, It has pleas d Almighty God
to remove from our midst three of our
beloved bietbien, and
Whereas, In their death Sandon Miners
Union No. 81 of the Western Federation ol Miners has lost faithful friends
and true comrades;
Be it therefore resolved, Ihat we the
members of this Union extend to the
relatives of our deceased brethren
this expression of our sympathy fur
them in their sad bereavement; and
Be it resolved that a ropy of ibis resolution be forwarded to the relatives
of our tie "eased brethren, a copy to
the Miner's Magazine an I local press
for publication, and that a copy he
spread upon the minutes of this organization ; and
Be il further resolved, as a mark of res-
peel, that the Charter of this union

Pnshed Through.
The second reauing of a bill entitled
"An Act to Aid the Municipality of tho
City of Slocan " was introduced by the
Premier for its second reading. In his
address be said the purpose of the act
was to assist iu the adjustment of some
indebtedness occurred. At theapproach
of the dull season, the p-cmier asserted,
Slocan had experienced a slump, many
miners and others residing in that locality having left forotjier parts. As a
result, the district had suffered and the
corporation had found it difficult to collect sufficient revenue to carry on works
of public importance in a way that tho
demands would justify. A critical
point has now been reached, and in
order that the municipality might be
able to continue meeting its responsibilities, it was necessary that parliament
should enact the legislation before the
The Becond reading carried without
Upon going intocommitlee, Mr.Haw-
thornwaite, who had been away during the second reading, wanted to know
the reasons for lhe introduction of
���'such an extraordinary piece of legislation."
Mr. Hunter then explained the position, going over much the same ground
as was covered by the premier. He
added, however, ,that the mutter was
before the courts, and that it was imperative, in order that the municipality
might recover itself, that the legislation
should be carried.
The premier, speaking again, acknowledged Ihat the proposed legislation was
unusual. It was not the regular thing,
he said for the government to interfere
in wnat might he termed the domestic
affairs of the various municipalities.
But, be asserted, the conditions were
peculiar. All the landowners in the
UlsiliC.t, he umlerstnnit, liml given ihcu
assent to the proposal incorporated in
the bill under consider.ili in, aud ho
thought it would be a graceful thing for
the house to pass the measure.
Mr. Oliver then took a band in the
debate. He pointed out that the municipality of Slocan was not asking for
an appropriation, All that was required
was the authority for entering into an
agreement whereby a certain indebtedness might be paid in installments of
l|600 annually, instead of if 1,000 in that
period, as heretofore. This was substantially what the bill provided for,
and he did not think that there oulil
be any reasonable objection to its passage.
An amendment was introduced by
Mr. Hunter providing tbat the title of
the enactment bo altered from "An Act.
to Aid the Municipality of tho City of
Slocan" to "An Act Relating to the
City of Slocan.
The bill was reported complete with
amendments, and finally passed.
The second reading nf a bill entitled
"An Act to Validate Bylaw No. 23 of
tho City of Slocon and to provide for
the conveyance of properly sold under
the provisions of the said bylaw" was
taken up, the premier explaining briefly the purport of the measure. He
pointed out that a bylaw providing for
the sale of certain Unds had buen introduced, which, it was feared, rendeicl
the bylaw invalid. Tho bill before tho
hoiiso simply piovi led for the validation
of that bylaw.
There was very little discussion upon
Ibis bill. The bouse went into commit*
tee, with Mr, Monro in the chair; and,
rising, reported the enactment complete
without amendment. It was put
through iis third reading and passed.

Frank Provo-'t, agent. THE  SLOCAN MINING REVIEW,  SANDON,  B.  C.
(Ooutinued From Last Week.)
"Were I 'dyTiigTSIiould refuse to be
seated while your highness stands,"
said he simply. His shoulders seemed
to square themselves involuntarily, aud
his left hand twitched as though accustomed to the habit of touching a
sword hilt. Beverly sat down Instantly. With his usual easy grace he took
a cbalr near by. They were alone In
the antechamber.
"Even though you were on your last
legs?" she murmured, and then wondered how she could have uttered anything so luaue. Somehow she was beginning to fear that he wus not the ordinary person she had judged him to
be. "You are to be discharged from
tho hospital tomorrow," she added
"Tomorrow?" he cried, his eyes lighting with joy.   "I may go then?"
"I have decided to take you to Edelweiss with me," she said, very much es
if that were all there was to it. He
stared at her for a full minute as
though doubting his ears.
"No!" he said at last, his jaws settling, his eyes glistening. It was a
terrible setback for Beverly's confidence. "Your highness forgets that I
have your promise of absolute freedom."
"But you are to be free," she protested. "You have nothing to fear. It Is
not compulsory, you know. You don't
have to go unless you really want to.
But my heart Is set on having you In���
In the castle guard." His bitter, mocking laugh surprised and wounded her,
which he was quick to see, for his
contrition was Immediate.
"Pardon, your highness. I am a
rude, ungrateful wretch, and I deserve
punishment Instead of reward. The
proposal was so astounding that I forgot myself completely," he said.
Whereupon, catching him In this contrite mood, she began a determined assault against his resolution. For an
hour she devoted her whole heart and
soul to the task of overcoming his
prejudices, fears and objections, meeting his protestations firmly and logically, unconscious of the fact that her
very enthusiasm was betraying her to
him. The first signs of weakening Inspired her afresh and at last she was
riding over him roughshod, a happy
victor. She made promises that Yetive
herself could not bave made; she offered Inducements that never could be
carried out, although In her zeal she
did not know It to be so; she painted
such pictures, of case, comfort and
piodnui'o that be wnmlered wny royalty did not exchange places with Its
servants. In the end, overcome by the
spirit of adventure and a desire to be
near ber, he agreed to enter the service
for six months, at the expiration of
which time he was to be released from
all obligations If he so desired.
"But my friends In the pass, your
highness," ho said In surrendering,
"what Is to become of them? They are
waiting for me out there In the wilderness. I am not base eaough to desert
"Can't you get word to them?" she
asked eagerly. "Let them come Into
the city too. We will provide for the
poor fellows, believe me."
"That, at least. Is Impossible, your
highness," he said, shaking his bead
sadly. "You will have to slay them
before you can bring them within the
city gates. My only hope Is that Franz
may be here tonight. He has permission to enter, aud I am expecting him
today or tomorrow."
"You can send word to them that
you are sound and safe, and you can
tell them that Graustark soldiers shall
be Instructed to pay uo attention to
them whatever. They shall not be disturbed." He laughed outright at her
enthusiasm. Many times during her
eager conversation with Baldos she
had almost betrayed the fact that she
was not the princess. Somo of her
expressions were distinctly uuregal,
and some of her slips were hopeless
as she viewed them in retrospect.
,rWhat am I? Only the humble goat
hunter, hunted to death and eager for
a short respite. Do with me as you
like, your highness. You shall be my
princess and sovereign for six months
ut least," he suld, sighing. "Perhaps It
Is for the best."
"You arr* the strangest man I've ever
seen," she remarked, puzzled beyond
That night Franz appeared at the
hospital and was left alone with Baldos for an hour or more. What passed
between them no outsider knew,
though there were tears lu the eyes of
both ut the parting. But Franz did not
sturt for the pass that night, as they
had expected. Strange news had come
to the ears of the faithful old follower,
and he hung about Ganlook until
morning came, eager to catch the car
of his leader before It was too late.
The coach was drawn up In front of
the hospital at 8 o'clock, Beverly triumphant in command, Baldos came
down the steps slowly, carefully, favoring the newly healed ligaments In
his legs.   She smiled cheerily at him,
aud he swung his rakish hat low.
There was no sign of the black patch.
Suddenly he started and peered Intently Into tlie little knot of people
near the couch. A look of anxiety
crossed his face. From the crowd advanced a grizzled old beggar, who
boldly extended his hand. Baldos
grasped the proffered hand and then
stepped into the conch. No one saw the
bit of white paper that passed from
Franz's palm Into the possession of
Bnldos. Then the coach wns off for
Edelweiss, the people of Ganlook enjoying the unusual spectacle of a mysterious and apparently undistinguished
stranger sitting in luxurious ease beside a fair lady In the royal coach of
mT was a drowsy day, and, besides, Baldos was not In a
communicative frame of mind.
Beverly put forth her best efforts during the forenoon, but after
the basket luncheon had been disposed
of in the shade at the roadside she was
content to give up the struggle and surrender to the soothing importunities
of the coach as it bowled along. She
dozed peacefully, conscious to the last
that he was a most ungracious creature
and more worthy of resentment than
of benefaction. Baldos was not intentionally disagreeable; he was morose
and unhappy because he could not help
it. Was he not leaving his friends to
wander alone In tbe wilderness while
he drifted weakly luto the comforts
and pleasures of an enviable service?
His heart was not in full sympathy
with the present turn of affairs, and
he could not deny that a selfish motive
was responsible for his action. He had
the all too human eagerness to serve
beauty; the blood and fire of youth
were strong in this wayward nobleman of the hills.
Lying back in the seat, he pensively
studied the face of the sleeping girl
whose dark brown head was pillowed
against tbe corner cushion! of the
coach. Her hat had been removed for
the sake of comfort. The dark lashes
fell like a soft curtain over her eyes,
obscuring the merry gray that had
overcome his apprehensions. Her
breathing was deep and regular and
peaceful. One little gloved hand rested carelessly In ber lap, the other upon
her breast near the delicate throat
The heart of Baldos was troubled.
The picture he looked upon was entrancing, uplifting; he rose from tht
lowly state In which she had found
him to the position of admirer In secret to a princess, real or assumed. He
found himself again wondering if she
were really Yetive, and with that fear
in his heart he was envying Grenfall
Lorry, the lord and master of this exquisite creature, envying with all the
helplessness of one whose hope is blasted at birth.
The note which had been surreptitiously passed to him in Ganlook lay
crumpled and forgotten inside his coot
pocket, where he had dropped it the
moment it had come into his possession, supposing that tbe message contained information which had been forgotten by Franz and was by no means
of a nature to demand Immediate attention. Had he read it at once Ids
suspicions would have been confirmed,
and It Is barely possible that he would
have refused to enter the city.
Late in the afternoon the walls of
Edelweiss were sighted. For the first
time he looked upon the distant housetops of tho principal city of Graustark.
Up In the clouds, on the summit of the
mountain peak overlooking the city,
stood the famed monastery of St. Valentine. Stretching up the gradual Incline were the homes of citizens, accessible only by footpaths and donkey
roads. Beverly was awake and impatient fo reach the journey's end. He
hud proved a most disappointing companion, polite, but with a baffling indifference that irritated her considerably. There was a set expression of defiance In his strong, clean cut face, the
look of a soldier advancing to meet a
powerful foe.
"I do hope he'll not always act this
way," she was complaining In her
thoughts. "He was so rharmlngly Impudent out in the hills, so deliclously.
human. Now he is like a clam. Yetive
will think I am such a fool if he doesn't
live up to the reputation I've given
"Here are the gates," he said, half to
himself. "What is there in store for
me beyond those walls?"
"Oh, I wish you wouldn't be so dismal!" she cried In despair. "It seems
just like a funeral."
"A thousand apologies, your highness," he murmured, with a sudden
lightness of speech and manner.
"Henceforth I shall be a most umiable
jester to please you."
Beverly and the faithful Aunt Fanny
were driven to the castle, where the
former bade farewell to her new knight
until the following morning, when he
wus to appear before her for personal
instructions. Colonel Quinnox escorted
him to the barracks of the guard, where
ho was to share n room with young
liadiliin, a corporal In the service.
"The wild, until mod gentleman from
the hills came without a word, I see,"
said Lorry, who had watched the approach. He and Yetive stood in the
window overlooking the grounds from
tho princess' boudoir. Beverly had just
entered and thrown herself upon a
"Yes; he's here," she said shortly.
"How long do you, with all your
cleverness, expect to hoodwink him
into the belief that you are the princess?" asked Yetive, amused, but anxious.
"He's a great fool for being hoodwinked at all," said Beverly, very
much at odds with her protege. "In
an hour from now he will know the
truth and will be bowling l!ke> a madman for his freedom."
"Not so soon ns that, Beverly," said
Lorry consollugly. "The guards nnd
officers have their instructions to keep
him in the dark ns long as possible."
"Well, I'm tired and mad and hungry and everything else thnt Isn't compatible. Let's talk about tho war,"
said Beverly, the sunshine in her face
momentarily eclipsed hy tbe dark
cloud of disappointment.
Baldos was notified that duty would
be assigned to hlm lu the morning.
He went through the formalities which
bound him to the service for six
months, listening Indifferently to tho
words thut foretold the fate of a
traitor it was.t,i'.t until ijis. nftw ixni*
form and erjuipftfenT* came Into his
possession that he remembered the
note resting In his pocket. He drew it
out and began to read it with the
slight interest of one who has anticipated the effect. But not for long wag
he to remain apathetic. The first few
lines brought a look of understanding
to his eyes; then be laughed the easy
laugh of one wbo has cast care and
confidence to the winds. This is .what
be read:
She Is not the princess. We have been
duped. Last night I learned the truth.
She Is Misa Calhoun, an American, going
to be a guest at the castle. Refuse to go
with her Into Edelweiss. It mar be a. trap
and may mean death. Question her boldly before committing yourself.
There came the natural Impulse to
make a dash for the outside world,
fighting his way through if necessary.
Looking back over the ground, be wondered how he could have been deceived
at all by the unconventional American.
In the clear light of retrospection he
now saw how impossible It was for
her to have been the princess. Every
net, every word, every look, should
have told him the truth. Every flaw
in her masquerading now presented Itself to him, and he was compelled to
laugh at bis own simplicity. Caution,
ufter all, was the largest component
part of his makeup. The craftiness of
tho hunted was deeply rooted lu his
being. He saw a very serious side to
the adventure. Stretching himself upon
the cot in the corner of the room, he
gave himself over to plotting, planning, thinking.
In the midst of his thoughts a sudden light burst in upon him. His eyes
gleamed with a new Are, his heart
leaped with new animation, bis blood
ran warm again. Leaping to his feet,
he ran to the window to reread the
note from old Franz. Then be settled
back and laughed with a fervor that
cleared the brain of a thousand vague
"She Is Miss Calhoun, an American,
going to be a guest at tbe castle;" not
the princess, but Miss Calhoun. Once
more tbe memory of the clear gray
eyes leaped Into life. Again he saw
her asleep In the coach on the road
from Ganlook. Again be recalled the
fervent throbs his guilty heart had
felt as he looked upon this fair creature, at one time the supposed treasure
of another man. Now she was Miss
Calhoun, and her gray eyes, her entrancing smile, her wondrous vivacity,
were not for one man alone. It was
marvelous what a change this sudden
realization wiought in the view ahead
of him. The whole situation seemed to
be transformed Into something more
desirable tban ever before. His face
cleared, his spirits leaped higher and
higher with the buoyancy of fresh relief, his confidence in himself crept
back Into existence. And all because
the fair deceiver, the slim girl with the
brave gray eyes who had drawn him
into a net was not a princess!

How Ben Tillman  Wns Identified  by
a Money Order Clerk.
Senator Tillman tells a story on himself as to how he was Identified by a
postoffice money order clerk when he
first arrived nt the Capital City.
After being lu the city a few days he
dropped In at tbe postoffice to cash a
money order.   .*.
"Do you know nny one here who
could Identify you?" asked the clerk.
"Well, no," the senator answered. "Is
that necessary? I am Ben Tillman of
South Carolina."
The clerk smiled, then usked the senator if he didn't hnve some letters or
papers that would make him known to
the postoffico authorities.
Tbe senator had put on a new suit
that morning and had neglected to
transfer his letters, but he hud tils
pocketbook with him. Digging down
lu his trousers pocket, he drew forth
his wallet aud proceeded to search for
au article of Identification, but could
find nothing but it smnll photograph
of himself.

banding it to the money order clerk.

remarked the mini behind tbe counter,

Bin: Apartment  Houstea and  Concrete
Foundntionis Are Old.
"How au old Roniuu would lntigh If
he should suddenly pop In here nud
hear us In Ik about the upart meni
house as a product of modern civilization!" the Washington Post quotes u
scholarly looking gentleman as saying.
" 'Get up to dnte,' lie would probably
say. 'Why, we hnd apartment houses
ns early as -I.".". B. ('., and big ones, too,
some of them sixty nud seventy feet
high. Why don't you think of something new?'
"Those iipnrtmeiit houses were culled
insulin; (Islnuds), und n very appropriate nnnie It wns, considering that they
housed n floating population. And the
tenants had their troubles, too, Just as
they have today.
"There was the same hue and cry
then about the height of the buildings,
nnd In tlie time of Augustus there was
4 law restricting the height of dwelling
houses to seventy feet, but this law
was evaded with all the Impertinence
of the twentieth century. And the
offenders were unpunished, for there
were in Rome nt the time of Augustus
over 1,500,000���which was crowding the
city some���snd, of course, the natural
tendency was to build up rather than
"As for skyscrapers���well, those old
Romans knew something about them.
The pediment of the Temple of the
Sun rose about 200 feet above the Cnm-
pus Martlus, In wb'ch It was situated.
The palace of Septimus Severus rose
to a height of 225 feet above the arena
of the Circus Maximus.
"Another thing thnt would mnk<\ nn
old Roman howl with delight Is the
enthusiasm with which we cnll attention to the glorious future In store for
concrete. We point out that houses of
great excellence nre to be built of It;
that roads are to bo payed with it; thnt
tt Is to enter widely into manufacturing processes; that it has properties of
endurance never before dreamed of In
a building material.
"An old Roman would probably
shout: 'The future of concrete? My
dear fellow, don't you know thut concrete has a glorious past and that It
was tliA agent that mado Home nn
eternal city? Don't you know thnt, nl-
though all the rest of Rome decayed
and crumbled away, Its wonderful concrete structures remain today as substantial ns when they were built?'
"The stories of the destruction of
temple after temple of magnificent
marbles, brilliant mosaics and massive
foundations always concluded with,
'Only the concrete base remains.'
"Now, the Roman temples were set
on high foundations of this cement,
called podiums. The podium consisted
of four stone walls, forming a box, Into which concrete was poured even
with the top. These podiums you will
see now in Rome, but nothing but the
ruins remains of the magnificent structures which were set on them."
The scholarly looking man settled
his spectacles a little more comfortably
on his nose.
"There is nothing which will so take
the wind out of the sails of our boasted up to dateness as a little contemplation of ancient It sine," he said as he
dodged into his own insulae.
Dairy Farming.
AH who are well informed about
dairying agree with an Indiana man
who says:
Dairy farming adds to instead of
subtracting from the fertility of the
farm, and the dairyman leaves to posterity the land over which he has held
stewardship in better condition than
he found it. Dairying adds to the profit-) of the farm without making much
difference to the other branches of
farming carried on. Mixed farming is
recognized as the best, and where
dairying is included with the other
branches will be found the most progressive of all farming.
It fits in and rounds out perfect
farming; it fills a place that cannot
be filled by any other industry with
the same degree of financial success.
Dairying is the highest form of agriculture.���Farm Progress.

Weak,  Tired   and   .Depressed   People
Need  a Tonic to Put the
Blood Ri-zht.
Spring blood is bad blood. Indoor
life during tbe winter months is responsible for weak, watery, impure
blood. You need a tonic to build up
the blood in spring just as much as
the trees need new sap to give them
vitality for the summer. In the
spring bad blood shows itself in
many ways. In some it breeds pimples and eruptions. In others it may
be through occasional headaches, a
variable appetite, perhaps twinges of
neuralgia or rheumatism, or a lazy
feeling in the morning and a desire
to avoid exertion. For these spring
ailments it is a tonic you need, and
the greatest blood-making, health-
giving tonic in all the world is Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. Kvery dose
helps to make new, rich, red, health-
giving blood, which reaches every
nerve and every organ in the body,
bringing health, strength and energy
to weak, despondent, ailing men and
women. Here is proof. Mrs. Geo.
Merritt, Sandy Cove, N.S., says: "I
wns weak, feeling miserable and terribly run down. The doctor whom I
consulted said the trobule was anaemia, but he did not help me. A friend
advised me to take Dr. Williams''
Pink Pills and it is simply impossi
ble for me to over-estiuiute the good
they have done me. I shall always
recommend   them  to ailing  friends."
But if you want new health you
must get the genuine Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People, manufactured in Canada at Brockville, Out.
Other so-called pink pills are fraudulent imitations. The genuine Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by all reputable medicine dealers or sent by
mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes
for $2.50 by writing the Dr. Williams
Medicine  Co., Brockville,  Out.

Four Things to Be Considered In Determining Its Quality.
By these four tests o��-s should be
able to discover if one haa purchased
pare olive oil or a cottonseed adulteration:
First���The price. A first class Imported article cannot be purchased under 80 cents aud frequently reaches
tbe dollar mark per quart California
oil of good quality Is even higher.
When the price of a small bottle Is
proportionately much below this, you
may be sure It Is adulterated with
peanut or cottonseed oil.
Second.���The color. The finest virgin
oil���that Is, the first press grade made
from olives hand picked from tbe
trees and carefully selected���is pale
green with an opalescent shimmer. If
a deep greeu or yellow, It Is some other
oil or has been artificially colored. A
deep yellow oil Is mainly cottonseed.
Third.���Tbe taste. Pun olive oil
tastes of the olive. If It Is tasttdpss,
It has been adulterated. Oil adulterat
cd with cotton seed has a disagreeable
taste, leaving an after suggestion In
the mouth like lard.
Fourth.���Test by cold. Fine, pure
olive oil Is easily affected by the cold,
losing its brightness and turning
cloudy. A simple test Is to pour some
of the an In a small bottle and lay lu
a pan of cracked Ice for two or three
hours. If It remains clear and fluid,
It has been adulterated. If genuine,
It will become separated Into little
white grnlns, holding them apparently.
In solution. If the contents of the bottle are then placed In a warm spot, the
cloudiness will disappear aud the oil
resume its brightness.

It Is always lest never to buy old
furniture that has been "restored," according to Town and Country, except
by a master hand, unless, of course,
you are *;jerely buying a piece of furniture and not a specimen. Again, It
Is just as advisable to buy good rep *o-
diicllons that are old enough to have
attained that stage of glow which Is
the beauty of old furniture. Nine-
tenths of the mahogany furniture of
the eighteenth century Is not worth using for regular household wear, because It has generally seen its day.
It Is therefore folly to spend a lot of
money on genuine Chippendale chairs,
for Instance, for daily use In a dining
The sound thing to do for dining
rooms Is to have oak chairs and fittings. Oak survives all the ages. But
In the case of this wood, as In everything else, the modern requirements
are confronted with a difficulty. Every modern dining room Insists on being supplied with a sideboard. In the
Jacobean days the sideboard, as we
understand it, was unknown. So, too,
was the ha track, and yet in a magnificently established house was a contraption which the proud proprietor
was willing to take his oath wns "a
Jacobenn hut and umbrella rack." In
any case, it was so sold to him by a
firm of antique furniture dealers.

by a lumberman, who overtook it in
the deep snow, and caught it in his
arms when it was no larger than a
cat, except for its legs. It has always been perfectly tame and domesticated, never having known anything of the wild life of its kind, but
runs about the premises unrestrained, having its place in the stable on
cold nights. The deer are numerous
around Sebec, and it is a question

older, it will not answer to the "call

The human body was first supposed
to be made up of 208 bones, but later
discoveries have developed the fact
that It contains 208 bones and an ap
pendlx. An appendix Is something
which Is added on, like a postscript on
a woman's letter, and means about ns
much. Its principal use Is to afford a
revenue for doctors and surgery spe
ciallsts. Operations on the human sys
tem are the correct thing In polite society. Pa says there Is one woman in

on bis fingers ho can never get a
quorum because he hasn't enough fingers left.
It says In my physiology that In the
human frame Is a network of nerves,
a sort of system of fine wires which
carry messages to and from the brain.
For Instance, If you put your finger on
a hot stove the nerves of the arm carry a message to your brain that your
finger Is getting burned, aud your
brain flashes buck Instructions to take
your finger off the Btovc. The other
night I had my fingers lu a can of jam
In the pantry when by eardrum sent a
message to my brain that ma was
coming. My brain answered back te
take my fingers out, but the message
was delayed In transmission, and 1
didn't move quick enough. Ma caught

Ancient Tombstone*.
The custom of Inscribing upon tombstones was in vogue among the Greeks
and Romans. Tha Greeks only did this,
however, In the case of their Illustrious men, but when a Roman died he
was duly burled near a highway, and
on his tombstone was carved a suitable Inscription, which in the majority
of cases began with "Sta, viator" (stop,

Your Doctor*
Can cure your Cough or Cold,
no question about that, but���
why go to all the trouble and
inconvenience of looking him up,
and then of having hisprescription
filled, when you can step into any
drug store m Canada and obtain
a bottle of SHILOH'S CURB
for a quarter.
Why pay two to five dollars
when a twenty-five cent *
bottle of SHILOH will cure you
as quickly ?
Why not do as hundreds of
thousands of Canadians have
done for the past thirty-four
years: let SHILOH be your doctor whenever a Cough or Cold
appears. ,
SHILOH will cure you, and all
druggists back up this statement
with a positive guarantee.
The next time you have a

The Fly That Bnszed For Mendelssohn
The following story is told of the
music of the overture to "A Midsummer Night's Dream:" While Mendels
sohn was deep In the making of this
same fine overture be went riding one
day with a friend. In order, after
awhile, to rest their horses the two
boon companions dismounted and
stretched themselves out uuder the
shade of a great tree. Suddenly there
came an excited "Hush!" from the
great composer, who half nrose very
cautiously. A large fly was buz/.ing
over them, and Mendelssohn was anxious to catch the true sound of the Insect's hum as It gradually drifted farther away. Many days later when the
overture bad beeu completed the artist
called his friend's attention to that
passage In progression where the violoncello modulates In the chord of the
seventh of the descending scale from
B minor to F sharp minor. "There,
that's the fly that buzzed past us at
Scbonhausen," said Mendelssohn.

School superintendents in New York
among their many duties are expected
to report on the personality of the
teachers In their district. It Is not always easy to get "a line" ou that quality of a teacher, so many are lenient In
the work. One of the superintendents,
however, Is never satisfied until Se has
made the test for orderliness by asking
the teacher to open bis or her desk.
One day he found one of his fair subordinates with things In great confusion. She was evidently violating
heaven's first law.
"My dear," said he to the blushing
delinquent, "I don't believe you would
make a good housekeeper."
The desk closed with a bang. There
was fire In ber eye as she calmly re

Falling; Into Hole In Air.
One of the strange experiences of a
balloonist is that of falling into "a hole
In the air," which Mr. Rolker reports
as follows: "So you continue sailing,
enjoying the present with little thought
of the startling surprises that may be
before you. Ahead of you, uuseeu, may
be what the balloonist calls a 'hole In
tho air,' resembling the vortex of a
maelstrom, and down this you may literally fall at a rate which is terrifying
until by sacrificing two or three bag-
fuls of sand nt once your pilot checks
your downward flight But these 'holes'
are scarce, and ns a rule tbe atmosphere Is of uniform carrying power."
When  Dobs Were  Cooks.
"There was a time," said the antiquarian, "when dogs did our roasting
for us���at least they kept the meat
turning so It would not burn. 'Spit
dogs' they were called, and we call
their descendants 'spitz' to this day.
Spit dogs were trained to turn the
spits on which roasted chickens, beef,
ducks and turkeys. Tbe little fellows
did tlieir work well. They were never
known to let a fowl burn or to snatch
a mouthful or two from it. As late as
1816 spit dogs were employed In the
old Philadelphia Inns on Second and
Third streets."
