He   Carries   Away  With   Him  The
Good Wishes of the Community
And a Gold-Headed Cane.
" 'Tis not in mortals to command suc-
COSB, but we'll do more���deserve it,"
Wrote the Bard, nnd if ever man deserved success In life that man in M. L.
Qrlimnett, mayor of Snndon. The good
inline whieh that gentleman leaves he-
hind in our eity will in the years to
eouie. be spoken of by our children's
children, for never had town a more enterprising citizen, a keener sportsman,
a whole-hearted public-spirited friend, a
better alderman, or a more zealous
mayor. For the past ten years be
bus pursued his. avocation as barrister
ill the city of Snndon, but the depression which fell as 11 mist upon tin* silvery Slocan has lieen too slow in rising,
and over-confident in Hie future of the
camp he has de ayed hits departure anus Ion1.' as possible. As a "family man
he owes a duty to the little ones who
have grown up around him ; to himself
he owes a duty, and also the profession
which he adorns. The road to fame by
the Slocan route has proved hard and
slow travelling, and none blame him for
tiitklng a shorter cut. -ficbla; B.C., is
his new locution. Il offers a wider Held
for his groat legal ability, and withal
the prospect ol a great future. "Tis I lie
rlr-t dog which catches the hare, and
we join with his many friends in wishing him every success ill the chase.
Determined that he should not leave
Sandon without carrying with him a
token of regard, a largo number of
friends arranged a banquet in his honor
at lhe Filbert Hotel hist, Thursday
night. The large dining hall was most
tastefully arranged, while the tables
literally groaned beneath the weight of
in and out of season delicacies. Sandon
has a great reputation, [or bestowing
sumptuous hospitality, nnd this proved
no exception to the rule. 'Justice was
amply done, and everybody being in
good huuior. Mr. L. Pratt, as chairman,
proposed the health of the King, which
was drank and responded to right royally. The President of trie United
States was similarly honored.
"Our Guest" was then toasted.
Bumpers were filled,raised and drained,
musical lienors acci rd *d. nnd three
cheers nnd a tiger given for the man of
the hour. The chairman in an excellent oration assured the guest of the
evening of the heartfelt sorrow of every
citizen at the departure of himself and
family, lie spoke of his company's
business relations with Mr. Grimmett,
and oi the hitter's great zeal ill currying out his onerous civic duties. He
was sure Mr. Grimmett would succeed
in his new home, and in presenting him
on behalf of a few friends with a handsome gold-mounted cane, he said Hint
he hoped Hint in his declining years
when'bent with lhe cares of a strenuous
life and eyes dimmed with age, the
staff he asked him to receive would act
both as a supii it nnd a guide, lie
felt sure that the kind feeling which
accompanied the token would ever be
cherished by him,
Mr. Grimmett upon rising to respond
was greeted with prolonged cheering.
Words, be said, failed him to express
tin* great surprise and pleasure their
kind words and presentation had made
upon him. He had always tried to do
his duty, and never did be realize he
had so many friends. He then reviewed
the history of the camp to the present
time, and although for tbe past few
years a depression  in mining had pro-
nilcd, still unmislnkeiible signs were
abroad that Saudoii and lhe whole
Slocan whs. again coining into its own.
Never, he said, had he greater faith in
the future of the camp than the present
m uncut. At the conclusion of li it*
speech the roof rattled with the singing
of "He's n jolly good fellow."
Ml'. N. Cavanaugll then took the floor
and highly eulogized the depni'ting
guest. He pointed out the great loss
the town would sustain as a leader in
in sporting circles; particularly was
bis. leaving a loss to the curling club, tis
he had occupied the position of president for many seasons! indeed, he wns
their first president, lie then culled
upon the old members to rally for the
forthcoming- winter, an appeal which
met   with   the   hearty  approval  of   nil
present. Qranbropk, he said, were
constructing a hue rink, und he looked
forward to giving them some good
"Our Visitors"Nvas the next toast,
and was drank musical honors. Mr.
H. P. Walsh, district manager of the
K. & S, Railway, nnd Mayor Cory of
Three Forks, suitnbly responded.
���' Our Railways " was reeponded to
in a clever speech by Mr. G. T. Moir.
���'Trade   and    Commerce"   brought
forth   a  great  speech   from   Mr.  S.   .1.
Towgood. The speaker made a big bit,
and on r sinning his sent was roundly
applauded: He also paid a great compliment to the departing guest and his
wife. lie said Mr. Grimmett was one
of those rare men who had no enemies
and whom everybody liked, and that
Mrs. Grimmett by her lovable disposition had endeared herself to the heart
of every woman in town.
" The Press" was enthusiastically
toasted and responded to by J. .1.
"The Ladies" were all jolly good
fellows, ami responding on their behalf,
Mr. George Bruder successfully proved
that, "in a maimer of spiokkln', dey
VOH nil stikked on urn right avuy." Mr.
E. M. Sandilands also proved a doughty
champion for the fair sex. lie related,
amidst roars of laughter, bow in the
very curly days he paddled u canoe with
a lddy in'from Three Forks to the Slocan
Star, und we should have credited the
story bud not Pat Walsh whispered in
our cur that there never was enough
water in Sandon to float a chip. Hut
perhaps this is Sandy's second time on
earth. Doc. Quinlaii and Dad McCTurg
were also looking after the interests of
tlie ladies, and both said nice things.
"Mine  Hosts"   proved  agreatseud
'off   for   Messrs.   Bennett and   Bruder.
I Mr. Dennett bltisbingly responded and
I the   speech of  Gus,  Bruder was well
"thought" out.
Mr. Grimmett then proposed the
health of the chairman, which was
drunk with musical honors.
Speeches were also given by the
Mayor of Cody (Alex. McMillan), O. V.
White, .1. A. Melvinnon. and W.Tattrie.
An overflow meeting was also held in
the reception chamber, with Harry
Lake as chairman and Al. IlolinquisL
as vice-chairman. Music was supplied
by the Symphonin orchestra under tho
direction of N. 11 urlbert. Lack of space
forbids the publication of the program,
but " For He's a .lolly Good Follow "
was tbe predominant feature, and
" Which nobody can deny " was echoed
back.l'roiu the banquet ball.
The proceedings termina'-cd with the
singing of " Atild Lang Syne."
Tram For North Fork
Louis Hinde, a mining engineer, who
with Vancouver parties has a lease and
bond on the Alps nnd Alturus group on
the North Fork of Carpenter creek, Is
about to push development with great
vigor. Th' property is owned by the
locator, John Potter, of Silverton, and
others. A line showing of antimony
was uncovered, but by reason of the
high altitude and rugged nature of the
surroundings it was dangerous work, and
the ore could not be packed down in
paying quantities by the owners.
A lease and bond wns therefore taken
by Hie parties mentioned. -Men have
been put to work, and development bus
begun in real earnest. A 1000 foot
aerial tramway is to be constructed to
cross the points which was found absolutely necessary to convey the ore below.
The opening up of this property will
mean much for Ihe whole district, and
particularly for the town of Three
Interviewed by the Review last Saturday, Mr. Hinde said:
" Tlie property you mention has great
inorft, besides being most unique, Il is
Hie only property I know of on the continent which is being worked solely for
antimony. Your report of a week ago
as to there being Jill inches of that rich
ore there was perfectly correct. It has
been, and is now, even better than Unit.
" It is our intention to instill a small
tramway at once. Men are now on the
ground getting everything in shape for
its reception. I have great faith in tlie
future of the country. For diversified
minerals it is hard to beat."
She was newly married, aud did not
know a little bit about either housekeeping or shopping,and she was giving
her firtt order. It was a crusher; but
the grocer was a clsver man, and was
used to all kinds of orders, and could
interpret them oasly.
",I want 10 pounds of paralyzed
sugar," she began, witli a business-like
"Yea'in.   Anything else ?"
"Two tins ol condemned milk."
Hi, set down pulverized sugar and
condensed milk.
"Anything more, ma'am?"
"A bag ol fresh salt. Be sure it is
fresh."      "
"Yes'm.    What next?" x
"A pound of decorated codfish."
He wrote glibly, "des Bleated cod."
"Nothing more, ma'am? We have
some nice horseradish just in."
"No," she said," it would be of no
use to us; we don't keep a horse."

Krao Ore Is Causing
A private letter from Butte describes
the excitement causeil there by the display in a bunk window oi tlie ore from
the Krao. It is said that within half an
hour offers to subscribe for stock had*
been received to the amount of over
$500,000. It is conceded to be the richest ore ever exhibited in Butte. The
writer of the letter adds that interest in
British Columbia mines is very keen,
and capital would nuw be easily raised
in Butte for any likely looking enterprise.���Canadian.

I motes ano Comment. $
The emigrant from Great Britain who
is a failure in Canada, and deserves to
fall has an ugly trick, says Canada, of L^
vilifying his adopted country, and now
and again his letters home���almost
always intended to elicit a remittance |
from sympathetic relations���find their
way into the London press. A peculiarly disgraceful specimen of these libellous epistles recently appeared in the
" Daily Mirror," which printed it under
a sensational title. According to the
writer, who confessed that he found
farm work altogether unpalatable, the
Canadian farmer compels his hired man
to eat glandercd horse, drowned calf,
baked frogs' legs and butter, roast
skunk, muskrats " buked with their
toes on," and cowhide soup. We have
seen-bow the farmer lives in every part
of the Dominion,   from "Tenhamat to
Nootka on the Island," and can assure
our readers that these weird dishes
never appear on tlie menu of the poorest agriculturist. The waiter is a liar of
the flamboyant kind, and nobody who
knows that the Canadian worker's standard of Hving is higher than that of the
agricultural classes in any other country
In the world will be so foolish as to believe a word of his letter which was
sent to bis mother with the obvious intention of arousing her sympathy and
so obtaining a cheque or postal order���

Nothing this type of tlie exported
Englishman can say or do would astonish us, but wo are amazed that a
London journal of any standing should
give it publcity without the name of
the author. Surely this is a striking instance of the ignorance of Canada and
indifference to Canadian interests deplored by tlie lieutenant-governor of
We can hardly believe our eyes.
Surely tbe Daily News can't mean it.
It has been saying some awful nice
things about Premier McBrlde lately.
Speaking of the premier reminds us
of un incident at Silverton last Saturday. We entered an hotel, and were
immediately recognized as a political
agent, though why, goodness only
knows. We have sunk pretty low in
the social scale, but not���not so low as
that. Our accuser was of the aesthetic
Piccadilly order, and after being invited
to " Have a bwandy -and sodab, old
fellah," lie vouchsafed the information 1

No, 1 Vol. I of the Canadian Pictorial,
a 2-1-page illustrated journal, came to

can turn out at the Review. It is published nt Montreal by the Pictorial Pub'
lisliing Company.   The price is 10 cents.

Canada too long has been the dumping
ground of ne'er-do-well's of the above
calibre. This is how the oracle invariably works : Claude Percivnl Fitz-
Marmaduke Augustus Gorgonzolii is
the-scapegrace of the family; he concludes with some naughty .deed, is
forthwith ostracised from society, and
paterfamilias pays a visit to a steamship agent to book the "deah boy's
passage to the colonies; he'll do line
there, y'ou know." Any old colony will
do so long as his sister Gladys Victoria
Hermyntrude doesn't have him and his

lessness, it is no wonder that the poor

stack of blues, drawn to a bob-tail flush

We are also of the opinion that the
agent-general in London doesn't begin
to earn his princely salary. Jay-Jay
has been through the process of eliciting
Information of British Columbia nnd its
resources from the London office, and
this is what he found ; A lot of young
cockerels running the roost who parted
their hair in the centre; who drew $4 a
week and saved nothing, who knew
more about cigarettes, soda-water fountains and Ice-cream barrows than they
did about the resources and wealth of
our prouince, who in directing yon to
Sandon would tell you to goto Winnipeg
and then awsk a pleeceman ; who give
you a pile of literature which tells you
how Jack Jones made bis fortune on
hot air and gall with a dash of bard
work on the aside ; who call quartz ore
and ore nuggets ; who are absent at the
only time of the day that the artisan
can reach the city, unless he be of tlie
unemployed variety ; and who hand you
out big chunks of guff about bears,
buffaloes and red Injuns.
With careful handling and piloting
we feel confident that many thousands
of sons of England could be brought
direct to our glorious province; but
there will have to be a big shuffling of
cards before that desideratum is accomplished. In the meantime the Chink
will prevail nnd we'll suffer on in silence.

Men are queer. Wouldn't there be a
roar when they went home to their
meals if they had lo climb on a high
stool in front of a table on which I here
was no cloth and eat their meals in that
fashion ? Yet a majority of them when
they go to a restaurant or lmicli counter
to eat, will pick out the high stool and
leed board with nu cloth on it iu preference to a comfortable clinir und a covered
table. A man will borrow a piece of
tobacco, and most of them will set their
teeth right into the plug where soineo'her
man has gnawed out a chew. Offer him
a piece of pie at home from which his
wife or one of his children has taken a
bite, and he would holler bis head oil.
At. homo he will not drink out of a
glass or cup from which some one of the
family has been drinking. Cull him
into the back stall of a livery barn, pull
out a bottle and be will slick tha neck of
the bottle half way down his throat in
order to got a swig after half a dozen
other fellows have bad the neck of the
bottle in their mouths. A man is a
queer complication.
A young Revelstoke girl Is charming,
but, like a great many other charming
people, she is poor. She never has
more then two evening gowns in a
sinson, and the ruin of one of them is
always a serious matter to her. She
went to a Utile dancing party last week,
and she wore a brand new white frock.
During the evening a great big red-
faced, perspiring man luked her lo
dance. He wore no gloves. She looked
at his well meaning but moist hands
despairingly, and thought of tlie immaculate back of her waist. She hesitated a bit, and then said with a winning
smile : ���
"Of course I will dance wilh you, but
if yon don't mind, won't you please use
your handkerchief?"
T he man looked at her blankly a moment or two. Then a light broke over
Ins face.
"Why certainly," he said,
And he pulled out bis handkerchief
and blew bis nose.
We were a little too premature in
imagining that the Daily News hud
changed its attitude towards Premier
McL'.riile. Its Oltuwu correspondent,
Ovidently a person of the virulent, rabid
Radical school, a few days ago wired
tbe News a detailed account of why
Premier Mcl'.ride left the Conference of
Premiers in disgust, Our premier is no
weakling, and bis motive for his abrupt
departure will be explained in due
course. The 'Daily News was not justified in printing in bold headlines tiie
following words : " M'Brides Baby
Trick. Sacrifices British Columbia's
Interests to His Personal Spleen." That
is something which the. people of the
Province will never believe tho lion.
gentleman guilty of, and such mud
slinging tactics only tend to show the
rottenness of tbe whole Liberal fabric.
Condemned and unheard, the aforesaid
daily sums up and pronounces sentence.
It never occurs to editor Deane that
there arc two sides to every question.
It is these striking examples of male-
evolence which brings British Columbia
politics into such ill-repute throughout
the Dominion. For goodness sake,
Deane, call off your dogs and close up

The disagreeable weather continued
for two whole weeks, but Edmee's
good humor persisted In an astonishing manner. She embroidered under
Mme. Despois' tuition, learned to play
piquet, and even read a little during
those long, dismal, gloomy days.
Marthe, on the contrary, seemed to
feel the Influence of the weather. She
was nervous and sometimes busied
herself with household duties with
feverish energy; then she would remain motionless for hours, making a
pretense of reading, but never turning
a page. Her affection for her slBter,
however, seemed to augment rather
than diminish, and assumed a passionate character that struck her aunt
Notwithstanding their forced seclusion, rumors of the outside world
reached them every day. The mysterious murder was the universal
topic of conversation through the
whole country. The Inquest had
brought no results. A few vagabonds
had been arrested on suspicion, but
were soon released for want of proofs.
Everybody who had ever known the
young officer was questioned, and the
Misses Levasseur had also been
obliged to submit to a sort of examination. It was openly said that the unfortunate young man had been madly
In love with the younger sister, and
had declared that he would marry her
In spite of all resistance. Marthe replied for her sister, who felt greatly
humiliated to hear her coquetries
publicly discussed, that Captain Bertrand has visited them as a friend
only, that If he had any Intentions for
the future he had made no declaration, and that, moreover, his visits at
the chateau had been neither frequent
nor prolonged enough to make them
suppose he aspired to her sister's
Robert d'Ancel, on his side, could
furnish no Information of importance.
When Interrogated, he seemed annoyed
and Ul at ease, and very much bored to
find himself mixed up In this lugubrious affair. One of Mrs. Robinson's
servants testified that, as he was
clearing the debris of the picnic
breakfast at tho "Fontaine de Vir-
glnie," he had overheard angry words
In a quarrel between the Baron d'Ancel and the captain. When Robert was
questioned on the subject, he admitted that, In fact, there had been a
slight altercation between himself and
the murdered man, but It had been
of so little moment that he had
made an engagement to meet the
captain at Trouvllle on. Friday or
Saturday. An acquaintance of Bertrand confirmed this, the captain having mentioned the fact to him. Moreover, the young officer's violent temper was so well known that no one
attached much importance to his
angry words and the quarrel was believed to be of no consequence.
Then the inquest dragged on. The
captain's brother claimed the body
and took possession of his effects, and
the papers soon ceased to speak of
the affair. It seemed evident to all
that some tramp had taken advantage
of the absolute solitude of the spot to
assassinate and rob the officer. The
matter seemed destined to be quickly
forgotten, as the victim had few
friends and had lost his parents in
his childhood. Mme. d'Ancel took advantage of a few hours break In the
storm to call at the chateau. She
excused her son for his apparent neglect of his fair neighbors, by saying
he had resumed his work with great
energy and rarely left his study. Marthe made no comment. Edmee, who
was hurt and astonished that he
could live without seeing her, assumed an air of Injured dignity that struck
Mme. d'Ancel as strange. One would
have thought she was the fiancee and
had a right to complain of her son's
Suddenly, the sky cleared and appeared more radiant than ever with
Its bright August sunshine bathing
the rich green grass, ripening the
peaches, and swelling the still green
One morning, Edmee took a fancy
to enliven the austere drawing-room
and went In search of the beautiful
Borb branches, the Spanish furze that
gilded the slope of the hillock, the
tall ferns and pretty digitalis that
grew so abundantly In the park.
She felt very gay and happy on
that day without knowing precisely
why, simply perhaps because It was
so good to live under a blue sky and
breathe the fresh odors of the verdure,
still wet with the rain and glistening
in the bright sunshine. With skirts
tucked up and an enormous straw
hat, she walked on rapidly, scissor?
In hand, looking for the brightest and
most dazzling sorb branches, and
tlnelne eaily at Ihe top of her voIr*e.
Marthe possessed no voice and the
classical music she played bored this
little Parisian immensely. The elder
Bister, on the contrary, listened to
Edmee's songs in delight, although her
repertoire was not very choice, and
most of the songs had been learned
from the cousin who played the comic
parls at the theatre. These made Aunt
Relic laugh heartily, while the shocked Marthe stopped the bold little singer by placing her hand over her lips.
But on this sunshiny morning, It
was not a concert hall refrain that
floated on the pure air; It was one of
Mlrellle's sweet romances that Edmee
particularly loved. Suddenly, she felt
that a pair of eyes gazed Intently at
her; she stopped short, and turned
quickly. Robert d'Ancel was standing
motionless in the path, listening and
looking at her admiringly. She blushed
to the roots of her hair, annoyed to
be caught In morning neglige, with
her skirts tucked up and disordered
"It Is not fair to surprise people
like this," she said, with a little pout
that soon changed Into a smile.
"Why not? Because It Is not the
regulation visiting hour?" he replied.
"But you must remember that we are
in the country and not In Paris. My
fair neighbor Marthe was never angry
with me when I surprised her In a
morning dress. But then, Marthe Is
not a coquetle."
"That Is her gravest fault," declared Edmee, as she clipped the
branches right and left.
"Upon my word! I believe you ate
right. Simple and sincere women aro
larely appreciated as they should be,"
lie  said, with  a bitterness aad  pas
sion Oiat astonished the yoling girl.
Then he added, more calmly "Allow
me to assist you. You look determined
to cut down the whole forest, and it
Is hard work for your little hands."
"I have been waiting for you to
offer your services," she observed,
laughingly, as sire fibed his arms with
her harvest.
"Have you got enough?"
"Yes, I am going back now. We
-an pluck a few wild pinks and digitalis on our way; they will .vary the
colors of my bouquets, and besides, I
lon't think you are loaded enough."
"Thank- you. Do you impose this
aard labor on me by way of expla-
���ion? What crime am I guilty of?"
"You know your crime well!" she
said, somewhat curtly.
"Indeed, I assure you, I do not. un-
Jerstand you," he said, bewildered.
"Is It not a crime to fall In keeping
four word? Is It not a crime to keep
me walling in vain? Is it not a crime
lot to have begged humbly i'Or pardon
it once? Do you know that you have
lot honored us with a visit for almost
;wo weeks?"
His smile vanished, for a moment
ae seemed sad and preoccupied, Final-
y he said, with an effort:
"I was unavoidably prevented from
ittendlng Mrs. Robinson's recep'lon.
Since then, I have been occupied by
;hat sad affair. Besides," and he low-
3i*ed his voice, "I believed Bertrami's
tragic death would be a great shock
to you. But when I heard you singing
a (moment ago, I was completely reassured."
Edmee detected a something in
Robert's voice that was almost a reproach. Her face flushed hotly, and
she stopped abruptly. "Let us have an
Immediate explanation, Monsieur d'
Ancel," she said, earnestly. "If I understand you, you reproach me with a
want of feeling for a sad event that
should concern me?"
"Forgive me, Mademoiselle, but
Bertrand was madly in love with you
���and It seemed to me���at least I
thought���that his love was not indifferent to you���"
"In other words," she Interrupted,
"you believed me In love with this
handsome Captain, and expected me to
marry him."
"So I feared���"
"I had no such thought. Ah! I know
that you blame me. Your allusion to
coquettish women was directed
against me, It required no great
shrewdness to guess it. T will explain
myself at once for all. It Is very true,
I love admiration. AVhen the gardener
drops his rake to look after me, it
pleases me. Captain Bertrand's attentions were by no mpans disagreeable
to me, I admit. But I never dreamed I
Inspired the passion you speak of. I
pleased him, and he may have counted on a marriage that would have been
more advantageous to him than to
me. When I realized that things were
going too far, and that the Captain's
fancy was becoming a violent caprice,
I came to a sudden determination; I
resolved to ask mv sister to receive
him no more. I had no occasion, however, to carry out my good Intentions,
as you know. The unfortunate young
man's death gave me a nervous shock,
mingled with a little pity and horror,
but that was all."
A silence followed. Robert breathed
more freely. He walked on by her side
radiant and with head erect. Struck
by the change, Edmee, as if In spite
of herself, suddenly cried:
"So you���you were jealous then?"
Then, blushing and confused, she looked intently at the tips of her dainty
"Yes," he murmured, "yes, I was
jealous. Absurd, was It not? What
right had I to be jealous? Do I know?
Do I even dare ask myself? All I know
Is that I suffered, that I passed through
an abominable crisis, during which
the whole world was Indifferent to
���ne, save a vision that I strove to
drive away, and which unceasingly, returned."
During this voluntary seclusion of
two weeks, It seemed to Robert that
he had lived an eternity. He had
struggled, accusing himself of folly,
of disloyalty; he had tried in vain
to forget the enchantress. The more
Marthe seemed fitted for the wife of
a serious man, who loved Solitude and
Isolation, the more Edmee seemed to
claim luxury, society and all the things
he detested. But all this was of no
avail; he was the victim of that folly
which, sooner or later, overtakes the
studious man, who has spent his youth
In the midst of books, instead of in
the society of women. Only one thing
was clear to him: Edmee was adorable, and he loved her wildly. And in
the whirlwind cf his senseless pas
slon, the sweet image of Marthe was
nothing but a distant vision, almost
effaced, importance even. During those
long, solitary duvs. while he struggled
against himself, Ids passion had probably made more ""ogress than if he
lived his normal life.
Thriv walked on in  silence. Edmee
still seemed to be listening In raptures
to the voice which had ceased to vibrate. At last, very softly, as If It
were but a sigh, she murmured:
"What happiness!"
Robert dropped his load of verdure,
caught her hands and forced her to
look at him.
"Can It be true, can it be true! Did
you say It was a happiness!" he cried,
trembling with emotion.
"Yes," she whispered, almost ln-
"My love does not offend you7 Do I
not frighten you���I, who am so little
adapted to please women like you,
to whom joy and perpetual happiness
are as necessary as the sunshine to
flowers. You do not know what a poor,
aimless dreamer I am. It was only
when I saw you that I first realized
the joys of living. I feel that I am
saying Incoherent things to you. You
must find me a sad lover. But It Is
impossible that you should love me, I
have so little to offer you! You, who
might be a duchess, a princess or anything you wished? Wherever you go,
you shall be adored, for you were born
to be a sovereign. Let me hear your
voice. It seems to me I am dreaming.
Speak, I beg of you!"
"I love you���"she murmured.
"It seems so incredible. Ah! I am so

you see that I don't try to make myself out better than I am."
"You are yourself. That suffices me.
Who could be unreasonable enough
to wish you otherwise?"
The past existed no longer for him.
He forgot that he had once dreamed
of a ealm and tranquil happiness with
the elder sister. What an empty future It would have been! After all, why
should he feel any remorse? If he was
fiee to marry this exquisite creature,
it was because Marthe had willed it
so. She had given him his freedom,
and in such a manner that he could
only bow to her wishes. Why should
he> mourn eternally over a union that
he had accepted through motives of
suitability, of duty almost? Had he
not the right to happiness, to life, and
had not Marthe herself given him that
From the window of her boudoir,
Marthe saw them coming toward the
house. Robert, his arms loaded with
branches and flowers, was bending
over Edmee, talking with animation,
while Edmee, the little chatter-box,
was silent, her eyes fixed on the
ground. Once she raised her pretty
face and smiled at the young man,
anil there was an expression on It
ihat Marthe had never seen.
The unhappy girl could not repress
a moan, as she leaned out to obtain
a better view of them.
"Already!���" she said, bitterly. "Ah!
I never believed I could suffer so

Astounding    and    Heartrending    Case
Which Wnecks One Little Home.
One of the most astounding and at
the same time heartrending cases of
the many which passed through The
Montreal Star's Information Bureau,
was that of a woman who wanted a
few dollars more than her husband
had allowed her *for clothing for her
daughter's first communion.
Caught by the alluring circulars
which had been freely sent abroad by
mall and hand delivery, she went to
the office of one of the worst of the
usurers, and borrowed ten dollars. She
was told that she would have to get
the signature of her husband to the
note, and she replied that she did not
want her hushand to know anything
about it.
The crafty manager of the firm replied that there was no necessity for
her to let her husband know anything
about It, but to simply sign his name
In a "kind of a back hand" and th.;n
sign her own name. He told her he
would leave her alone for a few minutes, and a man would then come In
and ask her If she had seen her hus-
"band sign the note. She fought to get
out of the act and its attendant disgrace, tout the man assured her that
to just answer yes to a question was
not like taking an oath.
She fell into the trap and when the
usurer's tool had left the room she
forged her husband's name and then
wrote her own.
Here an her own words:."When the
other man came Into the room I stood
with my face to the floor, because I
knew what I had done. When he
asked me If I saw my husband sign
the paper I said 'Yes.' God knows
how sorely I was tempted. Then he
asked me If I could get my eldest
daughter, who Is just 16, to sign It. I
had told him that she was working.
I said that I would, and he told ma
to send her to him. He also said that
there was no necessity for me to go
back with her.
"I got the money, but he said she
must sign. I went away and told her
where to go, and then I hurried homo.
Not long after she came In to the
house crying bitterly and asked me
what kind of a place it was thait I
sent her to.
"She then told me a terrible tale of
how the man treated her In his private room after she had endorsed the
note. I cannot repeat jus-t what she
told me.
"In order to meet the last payments on the note���they amounted to
$15���I had to borrow another $10 from
the man, and later on another $10. On
these we have paid In all $67, and they
now have judgment against us for
$47. We have gone almost to starvation's door trying to scrape a little
together to pay them, and my husband when he found out what had bean
done felt like killing them. I have no
excuse for the part I played In the
matter, except that little by little the
man drew me Into the thing until I
signed paper about which I knew nothing. Our home Is wrecked, but we see
a little light through The Star's work.
I know a number of people who aro
taking your advice, and all over the
city I have friends who are rejoicing
at seeing a chance to get free from
those, awful moneylenders."
Quiok Lunch Service on Trains.

Government Live Stock Commissioner
Who Has Accomplished Much For
Exportation of Live Stock.
It Is safe to say that there is no man
In Canada to-day that has accomplished as much for the amelioration of the
hardships and the improving of the
facilities for the exportation of live
stock as the present Government commissioner, Mr. Sheridan. Many Improvements on steamships have been
made by the Government through his
Instigation in his reports. Some oi the
mor�� important were the widening of

the alleyways from 20 to 24 Inches to
36* Inches in width; compelling steamship companies to have three men to
every 100 cattle, instead of two, on all
Improved boats, and four on unimproved ships; the widening of horse
s*alls from 22 inches to 36 inches clear,
and the enlarging of the shipping yards
at St. John. At the present time he Is
bringing before the railway commission a recommendation to compel the
railways to restore the tariff, lately
discontinued, that had been In force
for over 80 years in reference to feeding cattle. For over 20 years, farmers
and live stock dealers purchasing
feeders and shipping them home were
allowed a rebate of one-third on the
finished cattle when shipped back to
the market. This privilege the railways
have taken away and full freight Is
charged both ways. Mr. Sheridan Is
seeking to have this privilege restored
by bringing the matter before the railway commission.
Round Barn Disapproved.
I have no experience with round
barns, but those I have seen have in
my judgment no advantage over the
usual rectangular form and have many
disadvantages. No expression so completely fits the case as the effort to fill
a squate hole with a round plug. The
round barn had Its Inception In the
thought that more space could ibe Inclosed with the same outline In the
circle than any other form. Of course
that is true and would perhaps hold
good if every inside form was built
accordingly. But we construct every
���partition Inside with a right angle,
and so there comes waste. To illustrate, If cow stalls are made to fit the
circle and are wide enough toward
the centre they are too wide on the
outer or larger circumference, and
vice versa, or If one wishes to drive
around the outside the passage will
have to be from one to two feet wider,
depending upon the size of the barn,
In order to make the turn. While a
given area may be more cheaply sided
up in the cylindrical form, the roof
will cost more to build. In brief, I
would not build a round barn, concludes a Rural New Yorker correspondent.
The Silo and the Dairy.
Milk Is more cheaply made hy good
grass than in any other way, and next
to grass comes silage, because it furnishes the cheapest and most desirable
substitute for grass, writes a New
York farmer In National Stockman. It
is true that It costs considerable to
make silage, but careful tests show
quite conclusively that silage from
corn Is a more desirable feed for cows
than the corn crop preserved and fed
In any other way, and this after allowing the cost of harvesting and storing
the crop. There is nothing like silage
to keep the dairy cow's appetite on
edge throughout the long winter
period. It also keep her system in good
condition, which is a very important
matter, and gives her a relish for her

Seeding Down to Grass.
The last of August and the first of
September is the best time In the
whole year for seeding down land to
grass, says American Cultivator.
Where the land is too wet to admit of
planting a hoed crop It may be plowed up and reseeded directly upon the
Inverted soil. If the bottom Is too soft
for two horses to plow easily abreast, It
may be often managed by working two
or three horses tandem, keeping them
all the time on the sod. It will not be
easy to cart manure on to such land
after plowing, but a dressing of ground
bone and wood ashes or other good fer-
t.llzer may easily be spread and harrowed in with the seed, and there will
be no trouble in top dressing such land
with manure In winter when frozen.
A New Potato.
A report received by the U. S. department of commerce and labor from
the Br,tish vice consul at Rouen,
France, states that the cultivation In
France of a new potato brought from
Uruguay has been observed for some
time with great interest. A variety of
this potato, called the Solatium com-
mersonii violet, is said to possess excellence of taste as well as a nutritive
value and is equal to the best potato
Known in France. This variety Is distinguished by ils resistance to frost,
as also to disease, and its one great advantage is that it prospers most in a
damp or swampy soil and, whether
clayey, calcareous or siliceous, seems
equally adapted for its culture, provided It is damp.

Curious   Impressions   Formed   of   the
Mother Country.
The King's four Indian orderly officers, who have spent three very crowded months In England, sailed for India
So Impressed have been these flne-
looklng, black-bearded men with the
order of things In the mother country
that they admit to a certain feeling of
awe when speaking of the great sights
they have seen.
Londoners have become accustomed
during the season now dead and gone
to the spectacle of these impassive
Orientals in their uniforms of black,
pale blue, and red and gold; but they
scarcely realized perhaps what was
passing In their minds.
Last season the Indian orderly officers were Gurkhas, the year before
Sikhs. The men who sailed recently
wore Punjaub Mahometans. They have
never tasted alcohol, and their meat
must be prepared for them by men of
their own faith.
. They have all seen much active service, and wear several medals and
The four officers were taken to the
Hippodrome, and before their departure they gave, through an interpreter,
some of their Impressions to an Express representative.

Sheep On Small Farms.
There Is a prevailing impression that
sheep are only suitable for grazing
upon large areas, writes L. C. Reynolds In National Stockman. It Is erroneous and unfounded. There Is no
other place better adapted to the production of sheep products than the
small farms, where the best attention
can be allotted to developing their
highest productivity.
Sheep never do so well as when
maintained upon good pasturing areas
In small flocks. This condition can be
maintained on small farms where a
limited number can be handled and
forced to maximum production.

that the most economical method of
using gluten is to feed it with bran or

Freak of a Golf Ball.
One has heard of moisels of straw
being driven clean Into solid timber by
the force of a tornado. Somewhat
similar and equally unexplalnable was
tlie result of a stroke at golf made by
A. Wyndham on the famous Westward
Ho course two or three years ago. He
found his ball In a bed of rushes, actually impaled upon a rush, so that it
was possible to pick up the ball and
hold it suspended upon the rush That
a golf ball, which Is almost as hard as
wood, should be spiked In this fashion
upon the point of so brittle a thing as
a rush Is a most remarkable phenomenon.���'London Sphere..,
But Prevention.and Cure Are   Readily  Obtained by the Use of
Recent reports of the New York
Board of Health prove that the mort-
ility from kidney disease is greatly
in  the  increase.
Bright's disease as well as tlie oth-
n* dreadfully painful forms of kidney
lisease can usually be prevented and
3ured oy giving some attention to
the diet and to the activity of the
liver and kidneys.
Excesses in eating and the use ef
alcoholic drinks must be avoided,
and the filtering organs can best be

beginning in a torpid liver and there

neSH and indigestion before the kidneys fail and such symptoms appear
as backache, scanty, high-colored
urine, painful, scalding urination,
deposits in urine, etc.
Mr. James J. Jenson, Olds, Alta.,
writes;���"I have been troubled considerably with lame back, which I
suppose came from derangements nf
the kidneys, and I have never been
able to find a treatment that was so
prompt and effective in curing this
ailment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver

life this preparation has entirely
cured me of this trouble, and of late
years I have found it unnecessary to
use any medicine whatever. I feel
it my duty to add this statement lo

Infantile Mortality.
It Is a. caustic commentary upon our
methods that after more than twenty
years of compulsory education it should
be left to private initiative to Instruct
the young mothers of our citizens In
the elementary duties of mothenhood.
The Ignorance of working class mothers In the matter of Infantile nutrition
Is phenomenal, a matter the more to
be regretted inasmuch as the bi*oast
feeding of babies Is becoming progressively less practiced. In this fact, of
course, lies the root evil of tine whole
matter, for dletetlcal knowledge only
becomes necessary (as far as regards
the Immediate life and death Interests
of the infant) when breast feeding Is
What is the cause of the decline In
breast-feeding? In the case of tho
rich It Is undoubtedly selfishness on
the part of the mother, selfishness and
lack of maternal instinct In the case
of the poor It Is a combination of adverse circumstances of which the chief
are the insufficient nourishment of the
mothers and the frequency of married
women's employment In factories and
the like. This aspect of the problem
was trenchantly dealt with by Mr. John
Burns In his presidential address to
the conference on Infantile mortality.
Married women's labor, he said, man
ufactured loafers who might be seen
buttressing a beershop or French polishing the outside of a public house;
married women's labor was an Individual   injury, a social  mistake,  and  a
! commercial blunder. No one who has
devoted any time to the study of this
subject will hesitate   to   confirm   Mr.
��� Burns' dictum, and It Is hoped he will
| be able, as he desires, to translate his
. sympathy Into action.
| In the meanwhile there Is an obvious
need for some organized effort to Instruct young mothers In the vital exigencies of Infant feeding. Much has been
done In Individual districts by means
of visitors and sanitary Inspectors, but
much remains to be done. Mr. Bums
truly said that nowhere In the world
Is young motherhood so Isolated as In
large cities.
A few of these women seek advice at
hospitals, but many more act blindly In
the light of their own Ignorance, or
upon the pernicious advice of others
who, though as Ignorant themselves,
yet gather from their riper age a semblance of authority for vicious doctrines.���London   Hospital.

Some  of the Queer   Bulls That   Have
Been   Recorded.
That man made a remark that had
better have been left unsaid who, when
the king found some fault with the
earl marshal for s ime details of the
coronation ceremony, replied, "Please,
your majesty, I hope it will be better
next time." Lord Orford tells the following, which he characterizes as the
best "bull' he ever heard: "I hate thai
woman," said a gentleman, looking ai
one who had been his nurse. "I hate
that woman, for she changed me at
nurse." A gentleman was once complimenting Mme. Denis on the manner
In which she had just enacted the part
of Zara. "To act that part," said she.
"a person should be young and handsome." "Ah, madam," replied the
would-be complimenter, "you are a
complete proof to the contrary," which
was a faux pas with a vengeanace. It
was at an execution In Ireland that
the rope broke and the half-'hanged
victim fell to the ground, when the
person who was superintending the
execution said, "You rascal, if you do
that again I'll kill you as sure as you

ran this close In a proclamation and

forthcoming races, wherein It was stated that "no gentleman will be allowed

An amazing discovery has been made
In one of the communal schools of
Paris. A class master uoticed that after 10 o'clock every morning one of his
pupils, a little boy of seven, seemed to
become a prey to fits of delirium. He
thumped his neighbors aud when reproved by the master rolled ou the floor
shrieking and groaning like one possessed. The child was constantly In
the habit of asking leave of absence
for a minute or two, and the master
bad him watched. It was found that
he carried a small bottle of abslutb In
bis pocket and took a sip as often as
be could escape from the class room. It
has been proved that the child's m�� tier

saw a deer the other day. The animal
allowed the man to approach It Arnold threw his arms around the deer's
nnck. The deer sprang off toward the

was afraid to let go. The deer rushed
through bushes aud over walls in its
endeavor to shake off its strange burden. At last the deer brought up
against a tree, and as Mr. Arnold had
no wind left after meeting the tree he
dropped off. Arnold will be forced to
buy a new suit of clotbes to replace

Always at Home,
It was all legally and satisfactorily
settled early In the reign of Queen
Victoria that the British sovereigr
may quit Britain without let or hln
drance, and constitutionally discharge
her or his duties at whatsoever place
shall be chosen. Where the King Is
there Is the court, and then, within
the British dominions, Parllamen'
might be summoned to assemble. Oriental rulers have a more subtle method of legalizing their Journeys. The
Emperor of Japan must worship the
dust of his ancestors every morning.
But he need not necessarily go to
their tombs; earth from the tombs Is
strewn before him, and he obeys the
strict letter of the law. The Shah of
Persia develops the Idea still more
quaintly. Rightly he should never
take his feet oft Persian soil. And
he does not. No matter how far he
may travel, 'he keeps his feet em Persian soil; it Is packed Into the false
sole ot his boots. Hence, though he
eat his dinner at Buckingham Palace
or discuss the weather with the Kaiser
at Potsdam, the soil of Persia Is always beneath his royal feet.
Compulsory Archery.
Archery was once a compulsory exercise In every English parish after

practice on Sunday was enforced In
Edward IU.'s reign, and Henry VIII.'s
crack regiment, the yeomen of the
guard, was composed entirely of bowmen. Archery flourished some time after the Introduction of the hand gun,
though tills had been used In England
as early as 1471. This developed, In
James I.'s time, Into the callver, so
called from the English misconception
of an order to supply English soldiers
with guns of the same "caliber" as

A French physician has been taking

the outer air was at 90 degrees, the

There are thousands of mothers
throughout Canada who have no hesitation in saying that the good
iiealth enjoyed by their little ones is
entirely due to the judicious use of
ihiby's Own Tablets. And there are
many mothers who do not hesitate to
say that at the critical periods the
Tablets have saved a baby life. Mrs.
Wm. Fdrtiri, St. Genevieve, Que.,
says: "I feel sure that Baby's Own
Tablets saved my baby's life. When
I first began giving them to bim he
was so badly constipated that the
bowels could only be moved by injection, and he sufiered terribly. After the first day I saw a marked
change, and in less than a week the
trouble was entirely removed, and he
has since enjoyed tlie best of health."

On a street car recently I overheard
a fine-looking young man of about
twenty-one, telling two companions how
he managed to cheat his employer out
01 an hour and a half's time every day
for over a year. This is the substance
of what tie said:
He was out a great deal with the
boys ana got, on an average, only about
five and a half hours sleep a night,
i'ins not being suflUuieiit, ne managed
10 sleep an hour and a Half each uay
*uring  business hours.
He went on to describe a large dooi
situated just back 01 the private olnce
iii tne store, which, when open, cut on
quite a little corner of space in such a
way that he could seclude hiiuseli
there without danger of being seen. In
tins secluded corner, seated 111 a chair,
he took a nap of an hour and hail
each day during business hours.
Several of the other clerks knew
about this retreat, and they took turns
during the day, so that some one ol
them was resting or sleeping there
most of the day.
One of liis companions asked the
young man how he managed to avoiu
detection. He replied that the door
opened into a passage way, aud - was
never closed in the day time; that tlie
boss never had occasion to look behind
it, and that, lie -would not he likely to
miss one clerk among so many; and
that even if he did, there was always
someone who would give the signal, ho
together the young men managed to
cheat their employer out of the equivalent of one man's entire time.
1 had  been admiring this young man's
striking appearance  beiore he told this
story.    He  had  a splendid  head, and  a
very strong lace, and 1 had said to my-
sell,    "How   I wish  I  could  tell    that I
young   man   what    great     possibilities.
are  before  him  if he  is  only  equal  to
his  opportunity."      Yet,   on    the    very
threshold of his career he was systematically   cheating    his     employer,     and 1
glorying, iu  his cleverness in doing it.   |
There are tens of thousands oi men !
ill tlie great failure army to-day, who
thought they were getting the best of
their employer In their younger days
because they clipped their hours,
shirked their work. They, thought they
were going to get on in the world just
as you do; but, before they realized it
they had fastened upon themselves the
habit of cheating, of deceiving, until
they gradually became so dishonest
that they not only were not promoted,
but either lost their positions as well,
or, when they started in business for
themselves, lost Iheir credit, their
standing, the confidence of others and
gradually went to the wall, or landed

Some  Funny   Sjvfcclies.
An Irishman who was very 111, when
the physician told him that he must ;
prescribe an emetic for him, said, "In-
deed, doctor, an emetic will never do
me any good, for I have taken several
and could never keep one of them upon
my stomach." An Irishman at cards,
on Inspecting the pool nnd finding It
deficient, exclaimed: "Here Is a shilling
short. Who put it In?" A poor Irish
servant maid who was left handed
placed the knives and forks upon tea
dinner table In the same awkward
fashion. Iler master remarked to her
that she had placed them all left hand,
ad. "Ah, true. Indeed, sir," she said,
"and so I have! Would you be pleased
to help me to turn the table?" Doyle
and Yelverton, two eminent members
of the Irish bar, quarreled one day so
violently that from hard words they
came to hard blows. Doyle, a powerful man with the fists, knocked down
Yelverton twice, exclaiming, "You

Old  French   Bonfire.
Probably the strangest detail recorded of the old midsummer eve bonfires Is oue in connection with those
that used to be lighted In the Palace
de Greve in Paris. The main constituent of the bonfire was a tree, which the
king was accustomed to fire with bis
own hands, the ashes being afterward
carried Ijpm'e hy the people for good
luck. Louis XIV. was the last king
who did his part. A mysterious item
of earlier times was the burning lu tbe
bonfire of a barrel, bag or basket full
of cats. The registers of Paris show
that a hundred sous were paid to an
official for having provided durijig
three years (1571-73) "all the cats required, as usual, for the fire," and also
in one year, when the king was present, "a fox, to give pleasure to bis
majesty aud for having provided a
