Tlie recent sale of the Krao silver
mine at Ainsworth, 15. C, to Butte,
Mont., people for the sum of $100,000
Caflb, and the natural publicity which
follows such a transaction, revives in
the minds of old timers many events
of the past which should be perpetuated
in history.
A. D. Wheeler, tho locator of the
Krao, who recently disposed of the
property, is now tlie oldest living white
resident of that interesting country,
and around his advent and subsequent
operations in tlie Kootenay lake country
is woven many interesting facts.
Mr. Wheeler was born in tlie state,
of (diio 52 years ago. He is a cousin of
William A. Wheeler, who was vice
presldedt of the United States at the
time of the Rutherford li. Hayes administration. It was on the advice of
he vice president that Mr. Wheele-
tanic west landing in Nevada in 1874.
E. T. Wheeler, the first editor of the
Literary Digest and now owner and
editor of Current Literature, iB a
brother, as is also Charles Wheeler,
who a quarter of a century ago was
city editor of the Salt Lake Tiibune,
but ha; been for several years in tlie
Philipines in charge of the large t
navigation and construction force for
' the government on the islands.
Asked as to tlie events which led
up to his connection with the Kootenay,
B.  C,    country,  Mr,    Wheeler   Btid:
" Eailv in 1884 I was in Butte, Mout.
Fr. iu Thomas Couch, a mining engineer, I learned of the Kootenay Chi f
an 1 151 u������boll mines on the east shore
of Kootenay lake nearly opposite the
present t iWn iJ Ainsworth, aud I was
to decompauy liitii there. It devoloped
that Mr, Couch could not go when the
time came to start, bo I selected as a
partner Harry Tobias, I furnished my
own outfit and supplies, but Mr. Tobias
was outfitted with everything necessary,
except his horse, by Giegerich & White,
then of Walkerville, near Butte. Henry
Giegerich is now a prominent merchant
and mining man of Kaslo, 15. C.
"'Harry Tobias and m> self left Butte
April 1, 18S4. We travelled hose'ack
via tho Flathead and Tobacco Plains
country in Montani and struck tlie
Kootenay livor at what is now Fort
X. e' ���, E.l t Kootenay, then known as
i i.iihr.i'ith's ferry. From here we fol
lowed tho lra.il to old Dave McLaugh-
li ,'a place on the American bide at the
boundary line on the Ko iteuay river.
������ Al that time tho noted Bailie Groh-
man w.is in the country working up his
reclamation BChcnus. We borrowed a
row boat from Mi*. Grohinau and followed down the river to the lake and
then along tiie east shore until we arrived at the Kooton iy Chief and Blue
Bell mines. There were very few White
people in tlie country at that time.
There was a provincial land surveyor
with a few men running lines, and
Thomas Hammil was at the Blue Hell.
Hommil was shot to death on one ot the
dumps of the Bluebell the next yiar
and Robert E. Hproule, who was arrested for the offense, was hanged in Victoria in 1880, The e tragic events came
near making international complications,
" After resting a couple of days at
the Kootenay Chief, Tobias and myself
crossed the lake lo Hot Springs, now
Ainsworth, Ior the purpote of looking at
some mineral claims that were known
to exist near the lake shore. The
result was that we gave the present
camp of Ainsworth as thorough running
over as it was possible for two men to
" It was on June 50, 1884, that we
landed on the west side of the lake.
Soon we had to go out to Bonners Ferry
on tlie American side, for additional
supplies. This m. ant a round trip o
liUO miles or Ul ro by water, and it was
necessary in those days to propel our
bouts with oars, and under favorable
conditions this trip took from live to
seven days. On July 5 we had returned
lo cam]), and for nearly 22 1-2 years I
have been identified with the district
bavin,: been tliere longer than any living white man.
" It was was in August, 1884 that I
located the Krao mine. The name is
not an Indian one, as many suppose; in
fact that was the name of a little dog
that was a favorite of mine at Butte,
and when we found the claim the
thought of the little dog was in my
mind and thus the mine "received its
name. Tlie surface showing of the
claim was line, but in that day it gave
no evidence of being the wonderful bonanza that it is classed to-day.
" The first assay outfit in tlie country
I took in, and ior years I did all the
assaying for prospectors and others,
but never ruceived a dollar for my
work. Neither did I secure any interests in claims on account of tlie knowledge thus acquired.
"In 1885 A. W. McCune purchased
Tobias' interests, and Ior some time
afterward Messrs, McCune, Giegerich
and myself owned all tlie mining properly that we had accumulated in the
camp.    Ill   June,  1881),    I    purchased
what was afterwards the famous Skyline
Silver mine, some live miles or more
southwest of Ainsworth. I paid $500
for one-half interest and had bonded
the other half for $2900 before the claim
was recorded or before I had seen it.
This mine has been idle for some time,
but all told it produced $145,00) and
yielded a profit of $75,000 while it was
being worked.
'* In the early 90s Messrs. McCune,
Giegerich and myself bonded our prop
erty to Hodge, Brownlee & Sargent of
Butto and Anaconda. On account of
the duty which was placed on lead imported into the United States and the
drop in the price of silver, theso people
gave up their bond. After a period of
inactivity segregation of our mineral interests took place and when the division was made, I had the Krao, the Gallagher, and some minor interests.
About this time the late Scott McD in*
all, who was in the employ of A. W.
McCune, sunk the 180 foot shaft and ran
250 feet of drifts on the Krao. He also
ran tlie crosscut 12 fuet from the bottom
of the shaft, which I afterward extended
four feet and struck that phenomenal
body of ore.
" It was from the Krao that I shipped
the first silvor-lead ore ever exported
into the Unite! States from British Columbia. This was in 18S0 and consisted
of 6 tons. We packed this ore about
one and one-half miles down the hill
over a rough trail on our backs. It wns
loaded on an old sal boat which was
towed 150 miles lo Bonners Ferry by
tiie old tug ' Surprise.'
" In 1888 we had tor a visitor in that
country no less a person than Theodore
Roos velt. Mr. Roosevelt came down the
river and lake in a canoe on a hunting
and fishing trip. He had for a companion and guide a man named Staffer,
who now lives somewhere in Spokane.
Although he was then only 28 \cars of
age, we prospectors and minors never
enjoyed a visit from any one moic than
we did that of Mr. Roosevelt. Whenever he had anything to say we listened
attentively. On the invitation of Dr.
W. A. Hendryx, who was then operating tlie Blue Bell mine, lie decided to
go out lo Bonners Ferry on the little
ste.uncr Galena; At that time I was
making a shipment of Gallagher ore.
Al otd-timu's remember the high bow
of lliiBTitdCi-aftpandaS "she had-to land
at beach, there being no wharves, the
gang plank was at an angle of about 45
degrees. M'. Roosevelt turned 1 ios*
with tlie rest of ns and helped to pack
the heavy sacks up tlie steep plank and
stow them away on ihe vessel,
"To co back a couple of years is necessary lo compl' le the current of events
as lliey transpired, Our neatest recording p>int was Forte Steele, in East Kootenay and as the country was sparsely
settled and men scarce, we held a miners meeting and I, although an American citizen, was elected district recorder.
I held this olliee in 13-ti and 13:17, unti
relieved by lien1)' Anderson, who was
appointed by the provincial government.
The most important event that I can
remembcr-during my official career was
the recording of the Silver King, American Flag and Kootenay claims for the
Hall brothel's and.others on Todd mountain. This was ill 18S7,and these mines
have since been famous and have b<-cn
owned years by au English syndicate,
which also owns  the smelter at Nelson.
" On account of the low price of silver
and lead and the genera] depression of
lhe camp, Twits absent f.oni Ainsworth
moat of tlie time from 1897 until last
year . During this time I was managing mines and mining property elsewhere. In April of last year I again
commenced work on the Krao; the
mine had been idle for 14 years. From
a surface cut 90 feet long, 25 feet wide
and iiO feet deep, I c xtracted and shipped
1000 ton? of ore to the smeller at Nelson.
It was while doing this work that I as
certained that the rich ore laid near
the toot wall, and I his discovery afterward caused me to extend the 18 foot
cosscut that McDonald had run from
the bottom of the BIO foot shaft.
" After we had struck this rich body,
with two men working underground
and two men on the windlass, in 21
days the mine paid a profit ol $35C0.
One ton that was shipped to lhe Smelter yielded 2770 ounces of silver. The
character of this oie is pure cube
argentite, similar in appearance to ihe
Galena cubes, all laced together with
almost chemically pure silver; tome
pieces weighing as much an 34 ounees
In addition to tlie very rich ore which
was mined and shipped with two
months' work a cabinet of specimens
was produced which sold for 5780, a
lartfe portion going to Butte and'Hie
remainder was sold to jewellers in New
York and Nelson, from which they
manufactured unique jewelry. The
jewellere of Nelson, B.C., made hat pins
and other ornaments ont of this native
silver, and spine time ago when about
100 Canadian Mining Engiueers pissed
tlirough the country each of them secured a Bouvenir in the shape of a pin
made from Krao silver.
" A. W. MiCiine, who purchased the
interest of my first partner, Harry Tobias, afterward made a lerge mm of
money out of the Payne mine in the
Slocan district. He Was a candidate for
tlie United States (senator from Utah
when the state was admitted to tho
union, but was defeated. For some
years he was  mining in Peru,   but  he
was in Butte recently when I made the
final transfer o( Hie Krao to Hand &

Gallagher chum, which is located about
two inileB from the lake on Woodbury
creek, three miles norlh of Ainfiworlh."

Mining Notes.
Al. Holmquist and Tom Carlcy have
hit the ore again. For tho past three
weeks work at the Sunshine has consisted of continuing a tunnel 100 feet below the big surface showing, which tunnel had been driven 60 feet or bo prior
to the present lessees taking hold. We
reported a month ago that a continuation of tlie crosscut for about 45 feet
should tap the paystrcuk again, and
this has been done. Nine inches of
high-grade ore has been struck, and the
latest report to hand is that it is widening out.
Seventeen tons of ore was shipped
from the Sunshine two weeks ago,
which gave values at tho smelter of 111
ounces of silver and 53 per cent lead
to the ton, Thus docs looal enterprise
win out.
Five men are at work.at the Queen
Bess. Operations are principally of a
prospecting nature, but enough 135 oz.
ore is being exti acted to meet current
Tlie Goodenongh is reported to be
looking particularly good. The Good-
enough ore is well known to be about
the richest ever shipped from tlie camp,
as a 40-ton shipment once netted the
owners $30,000. Shortage of ore sacks
necessitated a let-up by tlie lessees for a
few day?, but these have now ariived
and sacking is the ordor. 235 sacks of
high-grade jure were filled last Wi dues-
day, and the pay.-treak in the intermediate tunnel, of which the boys have
a lease, is bigger row ih.in when first
tapped. Fred MeDonell, Alex. Forrest
and J. D. Machines are lhe lessees.
Sacking ore still continues at the
Colonial. Returns from the last bg
shipment were very satisfactory lo the
owner, A. D. Copjotl,
Mining operation's will bo centime d
all winter ut the Coiinth, alsi at the
Canadian group.
Tlie. Payne concentrator resumed operations on Wednesday after a shut
down of a few days. Messrs. W. ( liffe
and C. Isonor have taken a lease on the
mili and the ground at the mine bit-
wee, i tunnels 5 and 7. Ten men have
been put io work at the mine stuping
between 5 and 0, and two shifts are
being work d. There is 20 inches of
good concentrating ore which is being
extracted and sent do.vn to ihe 100-ton
capacity mill. C. Isenor will superintend the mining operations, and W.
Cliffe will run the mill with a erew of
four. More men will be put to work at
the mine in a few day*.
Two cars of ore have been brought
down from the Suas-t, and over 00J
sacks arc filled at tho mine.
A deal is pending on the Lone Bachelor of great magnitude. There is fine
ore in all the workings, and we hope to
be able to report the deal closed in our
next issue.
There will likely be something doing
at tlie Chicago this winter. Manager
O'Neill arrived yesterday with two men
and they went direct to tlie property.
Good ri ports continue to come lo
hand from tlie Eureka. We learn on
the highest uf authority that the mine
is looking better than ever.

Dear Sir,���T.ie f dlowing Resolution
was unanimously adopted at a regular
meeting of Sandon Miners' Union, No.
81, of tho Western Fedoiation of Miner.-,
In lil here on Saturday evei ing, November 10th, 1908, Kindly insert the same
i:i your paper, and oh ige, Yours respectfully,   A. SHILLAND, Secretary.
Whereas, in the issue of the Nelson
Daily News, of Tuesday, Nov. 6th,
there appeared a'i arti.'le under the
caption of " A Black Eye for San Ion,"
in which the Sandon Miners' Union
is charged with fomenting trouble
and preventing tlie resumption of
mining operations on an extensive
scale; insinuating alsi that the, majority of its membership were not in
sympathy with the movement to prevent the introduction of A latifl labor
into tlie camp.
And, whereas, whenever requisitioned
by a miii' -manager, the Sandon Mln-
'ers' Union lias at those tini'S Olldeav-
ored to secure for them any kind of
help that was needed ; standing ready
today to' co-operate wilh the mine
managers in any incisure, which in
their opinion will benefit the country
as a who'e;
And, whereas, we bn'icvc no better evidence could be adduced of the working man's loyalty to the camp than
the fact that many of the mining properties at pr sent in active operation
wo'o brought to light, through the Intelligent efforts of men who hold
membership in tl],e Sandon Miners'
Now, therefore, be it Resolved : That we
depreOtlte the publication of an article which can only tend to injure the
camp, and brand as a malicious f ilsc-
hood tlie imputation cast upon the
Sandon Miner's Union.
Be it further Resolvi d : That we reaffirm
our opposition to tlie employment of
As'ttHc labor iu any capacity wliatso
e\'ir, believing as we do, that th's
diss ol labor is a detriment to every
interest that makes fir tlie potman*
ent prosperity of the country,
And, ho it further ltc-Olv. d: That a

to every Local of tbe Western Federation of Miners in British Columbia

"Pardon me, Monsieur, I am aware
of It," he said, gravely. "I came myself to���to ask you a few���questions���
to avoid scandal as much as possible."
"A scandal?" he exclaimed, bewildered.
Marthe, pale and trembling, came
nearer to him. She understood. The
storm had burst.
The young man's only answer was
to draw a carefully wrapped package
from his pocket. Removing the paper,
he exhibited a small revolver, a veritable jewel, but rusty and ruined.
"Do you recognize this, Monsieur?"
Robert took the weapon, examined
It closely, and replied, calmly:
"Perfectly. It was a gift from my
mother, and here are my Initials. How
does It come to be In your hands, and
in that pretty state?"
"That revolver was found in the"
forest near tho Fontaine de VirglBle.
it was brought to me by a man named
Isoilore Benoist to whom It was given
hy a peasant. It Is in this pretty state
because since July the 29th It has remained hidden Jn the shrubbery,
amidst the ivy that covers the ground
in that spot. The shrubbery being half
despoiled of its leaves, tho shining
metal attracted the eye of the passing
peasant. It was found near the fork
nf the two paths where the body of
Contain Bertrand was discovered."
"How singular! Who could have
stolen* my revolver? I am at a loss to
understand It."
He was so sincerely perplexed, so
far from suspecting the truth, that
the stranger became impatient.
"You do not seem to understand,
Monsieur," he said, sternly. "I am a
representative of the law, and I arrest
you for murder.'"
Robert looked at him In stupefaction.
"Why, you must be mad!" he cried
In horror.
"Are you not aware that for over
a month, since your betrOthral to Miss
Levasseur, the whole country has
been publicly accusing you of ridding
yourself of a dangerous rival?"
"Ah! that was it! But you, Monsieur, you, a man of education of our
world, you know that such a thing Is
absurd, that there is no jury stupid
enough to believe that I, Robert d'Ancel, would conceal myself in the forest and shoot a man whom I could
challenge to a duel?"
"The jury might reply that the captain, was a formidable antagonist, that
duels wilh him were reputed to be
unfortunate affairs for the other party,
that you were madly In love, and that
madmen will do desperate things."
"Yes, but you, a man of honor,
would not believe It possible. The
truth is, that I did have a dlcusslon
with Bertrand."
'And you threatened him! Unfortunately, there were witnesses to that
"I challenged bim; and we agreed
to meet at Trouvllle at the end of the
week. We were to invite a pretext for
a duel, that Miss Levasseur's name
might*ot be mixed In the affair."
"I assure you, Monsieur, that I have
but one desire, that Is, to obtain a
proof of your Innocence���In which I
am disposed to believe���that I may
allow you to go. Where were you on
that Thursday when, It appears, Miss
Levasseur expected to meet you at a
friend's house?"
"Where* was I?"���stammered Robert, evidently troubled. "I can not toll
"That Is unfortunate," said' the
man. drily.
Marthe laid her hand on Robert's
arm. This simple gesture was full of
gentle, yet powerful protection; It

loves, nnd did not escape the eyes of
the nroeureur."
"What my brother-in-law can not

As she spoke, she gazed straight at
the procureur, and saw that he did
not believe her.
"Did anyone seo you going there,

Then suddenly perceiving the stranger, she turned to him and added:
"I was told that a friend had come
at the last moment. But, Monsieur,
congratulation are always in season."
But her rapid, nervous babbling
stopped abruptly. Instinctively, she
drew.near her husband, who encircled
her with his arm. It was no longer to
her sister that she flew for aid and
"There is something the matter,"
she said, in alarm. "What is It. I have
the right to know, I am not a child."
The officer stepped forward, and
stood so as to conceal Marthe from
I am sincerely grieved, Madame, to
disturb you at such a time," he said,
"but It Is indispensable that I should
question M. d'Ancel concerning the
murder committed July last."
"Ah! Is that all!" cried Edmee, recovering from her vague terror. "Then
you have found the assassin? How fortunate!���I have a horror of these
mysterious crimes. Well, I suppose
Robert has answered your questions;
let us go now. The carriage Is waiting
and we must not miss the train."
"Will you allow me to ask you a
"Yes, but, I warn you, I have little
to tell."
"You expected to meet M. d'Ancel
on that day at the Manoir?"
"Yes, but he djd not come."
"And your sister did not accompany you?"
"No; poor Marthe had a sick headache. I left her lying, well wrapped
up, on a couch. On my return I found
her just as I had left her. She told1 me
she had slept."
"You do not think she went out
while you were gone?"
"Certainly not! she could hardly
raise her head. When she has those
spells she is perfectly helpless."
"And yet," said Marthe, in a low
voice, "I went down into the park."
"Why did you not mention it?"
"I did not think of it���" stammered
Marthe.    <
The young bride looked from one to
the other and- her terror returned, she
began to tremble.
"Robert, tell me���what is It?" she
said, Imploringly. "Why do we not
go? We are married, we are going on
our wedding trip, over there, where
the sun is still warm. It is so cold
here, I am shivering���"
He tried to smile to reassure her.
To him, nothing existed but this
pretty girlish face.
"Do not be alarmed, my darling," he
said, tenderly. "There is some misunderstanding which will soon be cleared up. I shall be obliged to accompany
this gentleman and explain certain
facts relative to the murder."
"But, what are you thinking of?"
she said, astounded. "It would be the
rhost ridiculous thing in lhe world.
You will answer those questions on
our return."
Unmindful of the presence of the
two witnesses to this scene, she clasped
her arms lovingly around her husband's neck, as If to keep possession
of him and tear him from those who
would part them.
"Madame, I am truly sorry," broke
In the official, "but time presses. A
revolver, bearing your husband's initials, and which he admits as being
his, has been found near the spot
where Captain Bertrand Was murdered."
Edmee trembled a little more violently, but her arms did not release
their hold.
"What does that prove?" she asked
bravely. "Marthe and myself have
seen how easily one could jump from
the garden into Robert's room. Some
criminal stole his revolver, it is evident. I don't suppose you mean to accuse Robert of such a crime?"
As no one answered, the truth
flashed upon her and she uttered a
piercing shriek. They were then taking
Robert away as a prisoner. This was
the dre'amed-of wedding trip they
were to take together through' Italy,
the land of lovers.
Robert gently disengaged the detaining arms of his young wife and
turned to Marthe, saying imploringly:
"Take her, Marthe; take good care
of my poor little wife���"
For herself, for Marthe whose distressed features betrayed a thousand
times more anguish than the frightened face of the pretty bride, he had
not one word of consolation.
"You will explain to my mother and
console her," he added, simply. "It
will be a matter of a few days only. 1
am ready, Monsieur."
But you shall not go, I will not let
you!���" shrieked Edmee, struggling
In her sister's arms as the two men
went out quickly.
Marthe was obliged to care for the
girl bride who sunk on the sofa In hysterics, console the distracted mother
who would listen to no explanations,
and forgot her own pain until some
hours later, when she finally found
leisure to withdraw to her own room,
leaving her exhausted sister sleeping
calmly like a child alter the nervous

more than herself, was anxious to Keep

If Robert had attended the garden
party on that day/no one would have
dreamed of suspecting him.
She paced nervously up and down
the room, unable to rest, not even
thinking of finding oblivion in sleep.
Her eyes mechanically wandered to
her secretary, and_ she remembered
that on that day she had confided her
sufferings to her diary.
Suddenly she stopped as If turned

shut herself in her room, refusing to

at the idea of returning to her home
alo ia, Mme. d'Ancel still remained
the.e, unable to act or do anything
but weep and pray. In the first hour
of their trouble, Marthe had gone to
her old friend, the Marquis, who received her .with oustretched hands
and eyes full of sympathy.
"Yes, my dear Marquis, I know you
are sorry for us," she said, sadly. "But
we need something more than pity.
You told me to come to you in my
troublen, and I have come. We are
nothing but helpless women, and you
must come to our assistance. Act for
us, defend poor Robert's honor! We
must���I shall���save him.'
"Don't be alarmed, my dear child.
No jury would condemn him on mere
village gossips and the finding of a
pistol. If he were guilty, his first
thought would have been to clean the
revolver and replace It in its customary place."
"The case.may be dismissed. But If
the real criminal Is not found in time,
or," here her voice faltered���"or If
some Irrefutable proof of his inno
cence is not produced, he will always
remain under the ban of, this monstrous accusation. Many people will
shrug their shoulders, muttering:
'Who knows?'���and this must not be.
Robert must come out of this trial free
from all suspicion. He has before him
a beautiful life of useful work and
happiness, and that life must not be
saddened, wrecked, at its opening."
"I will leave for Paris In an hour,"
said the Marquis, looking at his watch.
"I shall see a lawyer well versed in
such matters, and shall obtain permission to allow Mme. d'Ancel and
Edmee to visit the prisoner. Is that
what you wish me to do?"
"Yes. And above all, let all possible
researches be made for the guilty man.
I need not add that no expense should
he spared."
"I will not conceal from you, Mar-
the< that I fear the preliminary examination will not throw much light
on the matter. Researches were
made at the time of the murder, but
without result. The crime was not discovered until sixteen or eighteen hours
after it was committed. Havre is not
far, and many ships sail from there
every day. The murderer was well
provided with money, since he robbed
his victim, and we might as well
search for a needle in a bundle of
straw. No, my dear child, wo must
place our hopes in the skill of our
lawyer and the irreproachable inteced-
dents of your brother-in law."
Marthe left the Marquis, who had
barely time to catch the train. She
had done all that sho could, and all
that remained now was to wait and
impart some of her own courage to
those who depended on her. Ah! if she
could only act and forget, if only for
an instant, the sacrifice she might be
called upon to make!   .
She did not dare open her diary;
she did not dare recall what she had
written. She knew, however, that in
the abandon of her absolute security
she had related her struggles, her
most secret thoughts, her love, her
sad love, which she had always con
cealed with so much care, and which
alas! was written there between twe
sobs. She, whose only aim had beeu
to conceal her secret!
And this sad secret would becomi
the prey of a public ever greedy fo:
new sensations, would be laid ban
to the curiosity of all. Edmee woul
know the truth, and Robert would
learn that she had loved him, tha'
she still loved him!��� No, no, it couhl
not be! She could never consent to It!
The soul had its modesty as well as
the body, and she could not lay it
bare, not even to save a beloved being!
But she tried to escape from these
thoughts. The murderer would he
found; no money would be spared to
discover him. Money spent, lavishly
sometimes achieved astonishing results. The Marquis had promised to
see what could be done.
The affair attracted a great deal of
attention. Not only because the accused belonged to an aristocratic
family, a man already renowned for
his works, but the circumstances of
his arrest added much piquancy of
the story.
The newspapers related tho affair
In their own way. It was known that
the young wife was the daughter of an
actress wha had long been the delight
of elegant Paris. Many anecdotes,
more or less true, wore turned Into
sensational articles. The vlctljn's
brother suddenly becar��e an Important
personage. A portrait of him was reproduced, which bore but little resemblance, but which was, nevertheless, very pathetic, representing him
as weeping over this younger brother,
vowing vengeance and calling loudly
for justice. M. Bertrand ended by entering Into the role with which he was
Invested, and persuading himself that
his apathy was only feigned, and that
he had suspected Robert at the very
first interview.
Few newspapers were received at
the chateau, and Marthe would have
liked to suppress them all; but Edmee, on the contrary, sent for them
in quantity, read everything and
worked herself Into au Indescribable
state of rage.
Then, when the excitement over the
matter had somewhat died out, while
awaiting the trial, the silence seemed
still more unbearable. She complained
of not knowing what was going on,
and, In spite of his zeal, accused the
Marquis of accomplishing nothing.

King Edward, It Is claimed, vouches
for the existence of at least one of the
four ghosts which  haunt  Rufford Abbey, where he has been staying throughout the last week, duilng the Doncaster
races, as the guest of Lord and Lady
Savlle, writes   the   Marquise   de   Fon-
tenoy.    Lady Saville formerly lived in
this country, her first husband, Horace
Helyar   of   Cocker   Court,    Somersetshire, having been for a time attached
to the English embassy at Washington.
Moreover, the name Savile Is one familiar to students of American  history.
For It was Sir George Savile, one of the
former owners of RulTord Abbey, who
took so prominent a part in the House I
of Commons in championing the rights |
of the American colonies prior to the
outbreak of the war of Independence, I
which, If he had had his way, he would
have averted by means of wise concessions. He also championed the cause of |
Catholic emancipation,  for  which   h!s !
town house was wrecked by the Gordon j
The particular ghost at Rufford Abbey which Is said to have presented
itself to King Edward takes, according
to him, the form of a most impressive
looking old monk. The three other
ghosts likewise are garbed as Cistercian
monks, and In the churchyard of Ed-
wlnston, near by, may be seen the grave
of a man who, according to the inscription on 'his tombstone and to the entry In the parish register, ''died of
fright after seeing the Rufford ghost."
King Edward, however, Is apparently
Insensible to any fear of spooks, for
he visits RulTord Abbey nearly every
autumn for the Doncaster races, thoroughly enjoys his stay there, and Invariably occupies precisely those state
apartments which are supposed to be]
the haunted parts' of tlie abbey���apartments which, reserved for the use of
royalty, have been inhabited In turn
by King James I., Charles I., and
Charlas II.
That these ghosts should take the
form of Cistercian monks Is not surprising when It is borne In mind that
Rufford was a Cistercian abbey in pre-
refor.nation times. The paik ariund it
once formed part of that Sherwood forest where Robin Hood and his merry
men plundered the rich for tbe benefit
of the poor. The more modern portion
of the abbey dates from the reign of
Queen Elizabeth, but the greater part
of it Is hundreds of years older, especially the magnificent crypt, now used
as a servants' hall, and unaltered since
the times of the monks, with Its six
foot thick walls.
At the time of the reformation, Rufford Abbey was bestowed by King
Henry VIII. upon his favorite, George,
Earl of Shrewsbury, who at his death
bequeathed It to his son-in-law, Sir
George Savile. Ruftord Abbey remained In the possession of the Savile family until the deatli of Sir George Savile
without Issue at the close of the eighteenth century, when it passed to his
sister, married to the Earl of Scarborough.
It was her grandson, the eighth Earl
of Scarborough, who, having a family
of natural children for whom he wished to provide, left to them the succession to the Rufford Abbey estates, the
Earldom of Scarborough, the other
Scarborough, estates, Including Lumley
Castle, going to his cousin. He stipulated that each of his Illegitimate descendants on succeeding to Rufford Abbey should take the name of Savlle, and
the arms.
The present Lord Savile la his grandson, who succeeded an uncle, his father's elder brother, a famous diplomatist, who was created a peer on retiring from the service. The present Lord
Savlle Is childless, and at his death, as
there are no other descendants of the
eighth Earl of Scarborough, his grandfather, the Rufford Abbey estates will
revert to the Earldom of Scarborough.

The Neglect of Science.
The London Lancet (Aug. 11), commenting on the presidential address delivered by Prof. Ray Lankester before
the British Association at York, says:
"The failure of the public and of our
leaders of Industry to realize the Immense practical Importance of scientific
research Is a serious menace to the welfare and prosperity of the country.
In many Instances the people do not
appear to understand the real nature
and object of scientific inquiry; they
regard It as a kind of hobby pursued
by cranks for amusement, or by a
glorified class of conjurers who Intend
to get rich upon patent rights; they
divorce It altogether from serious purposes. When the fact Is plainly brought
home that people are dying by thousands from preventible disease It might
be thought that generous support
would be given to the organization of
research designed to alleviate the 111.
The reverse prevails; neither the work
nor the worker receives any large measure of public sympathy, and all endowment is left to a few public spirited Individuals. The public never realizes that the laborer In the field of
science Fs worthy his hire. Honors, It
Is true, await the discoverer, but what
a number of Investigations there must
be which are fruitless because of the
lack of monetary support. Medical
science has a stronger claim perhaps
than any other province of research
on the generosity of the public, and
yet how niggardly Is the response to
all appeals for funds to carry out the
work of combating disease by scientific
methods. Readers of The Lancet will
thoroughly endorse the view of Prof.
Lankester that If the people of this
country wish to make an end of Infective and other diseases they must
take every possible means to discover
capable investigators. They must discover them aind employ them, and If
good result Is to be made at all certain It Is probable that where a pound
or so of public money Is now spent It
will be necessary to spend thousands.
. . . Nothing short of the annual allocation of a generous sum of money
out of the public purse will serve the
purpose, and the public should learn
that it is a fundamental truth that on
the successful prosecution of scientific
research depend, after all, the health
and welfare of th8 community."

Don't Stand When Yon Can sit: Don't
Sit When  Yon  Ciin  Lie  Down.
Women sit too much, aud women
stand quite too much. Nothing Is more
wearisome than "standing about," even
to the well trained body that has been
drilled luto good poise, and sitting is
not resting, however cleverly women
may delude themselves on this point.
The young girl who desires to keep
away crow's feet nnd the Jaded look
and to retain the suppleness and bloom
of youth should wheu off parade and
duty and In her own room make a
couch or the floor her habitual resting
Absolute repose comes to the tired
muscles only when the body Is In a reclining position, and absolute repose
comes to the overstruug nerves ouly
when the muscular system Is perfectly
at rest, relaxed.
Tho middle aged woman can woo
back much of the freshness and HUie-
someness of girlhood if she will be at
a little pains to learn how to rest.
Five minutes of rest flat on the back
on the floor or ou a hard, smooth couch
are worth half an hour of so styled
rest in an armchair or In that unre-
poseful tempter, the rocking chair.
Some one has said to the woman of

Zam-Buk   Wins  Workers'   Praise.
Marvellous  Cure of  Burns.
Zam-Buk has been called "the worker's friend" because it brings sueh
relief and healing to workers who
suffer from cuts, burns, bruises or
any skin injury or disease. Mr. Alf.
J. Clark, of Cavendish street, London, (Out.), tells how Zam-Buk cured
him of severe burns. He says: I
got my hands very severely burned
witli lime. The burns were so deep
that as I plied my shovel tlie blood
actually ran down the handle. The
agony I suffered you may well imagine. 1 tried several different kinds
of salves but the burns were too severe   for  these   preparations   to   heal.
"I obtained a supply of Zam-Buk
and the very first application gave
me ease. This pleased me, you may
guess, hut as I applied the balm each
day I was more and more pleased
with the effect. The pain was relieved completely.
"I had often heard of Zam-Buk
but thought before I tried it that It
was similar to the ordinary salves
you see advertised. In a very short
time Zam-Buk healed my wounds
completely, and my hands actually
felt better ��� the muscles more firm
and the skin in better condition than
before I was burnect."
Not only for burns, but for cuts,
bruises, sprains, etc., Zam-Buk is the
best and surest cure. It also cures
eczema, ulcers, abscesses, ringworm,
boils, eruptions, poisoned wounds,
chapped or cracked hands, cold sores,
chilblains, bad leg, piles, etc. All
druggists sell at 50c a box, or post

Saved Jutst in Time by Dr. Williams'
Pink  Pills.
"Before my daughter Lena began
taking Dr. William* Pink Pills she
looked more like a corpse than a live
girl," says Mrs. Geo. A. Myles, of
South Woodslee, Ont. Her blood
seemed as though it had all turned
to water. Then she begun to have
bad spells witli her heart. At * tho
least excitement her hearts would b.'tit
so rapidly as to almost smother her.
She grew very thin, and hud no appetite, and what little food she did
eat did not seem to nourish her. She
was treated by one of the bast doctors in this part of tlie country, yet
she was daily growing worse and her
heart-got so bail that we were afraid
that she would die. Site slept but
very little, and would frequently
awake with a start nnd sometimes
would jump right up in bed. These
starts would always bring on a bad
spell and leave her- weak and exhausted. We had almost given up all
hope of ever seeing her well again,
when we decided to try Dr. Williams'
1 ink, Pills. After taking a couple of
boxes she begun to sleep better at
night, and color began to return to
her lips. From that ' on she kept
light on gaining aad after taking
eight boxes of tlie pills she was again
in good health. She is now fifteen
years of age, tlie picture of health,
iiiul since beginning tlie pills has
gained about forty pounds in weight.
Only those who saw lier when ill can
appreciate tlie marvellous change Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have brought
about in her condition. I believe
that had it not been for the pills she
would be in her grave to-day, and it
;s with feelings of deep gratitude Ihat
I write you in the hope that it majfs
benefit some other sufferer."

By Analysis of the Urine that Chronic Kidney
Disease is Positively Cured by
Dr> Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
The case of Capt. Smith is unusually interesting because it proves ab-
Bflutoly by analysis of the urine that
Dr. Chase's Kidney-L,iver Pills cured
him of kidney disease. The doctor
himself could scarcely believe it until
he had made the second analysis and
pronounced the captain a well man.
Capt. Wm. Smith is a veteran of
the Crimean war, living at Revelstoke, B.C., and earned his title in
the British army. He reported his
case in a letter as follows: "I can
testify to the benefit derived from
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. For |
years 1 was a sufferer from kidney
disease, and could get no relief for
it. The doctor examined me and analyzed my urine and told me I had
chronic disease of the kidneys. As
his medicine did me no good, I
bought a box of Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver    Pills    and    was benefitted so
much that I kept, on taking them until I can say I am perfectly cured.
I told the doctor that I was cured,
but he would not believe me until he
examined* rfly urine again. After doing so he stated that I had no trace
of kidney disease left. I have recommended Dr. Chase's Medicines to
many people."
Should it not bo convenient for you
to have a physician analyze the urine
you can make this test yourself:���
Put some urine in e. bottle or tumbler
and let it *t?.nd for twenty-four hours;
if there is a sediment in the bottom
'at the end of that time, or if it is
discolored, milky, cloudy or stringy
your kidneys are out of order and not
doing their  work  properly.

"Among me many ailments which

"I decided to give Peruna a trial
and soon found it acting as a wonderful tonic to my system. The catarrh grew less severe and shortly afterward disappeared, as did also the
various other maladies.

dxclaim in your doubt as to the outcome. You know long ago mending
used to be a work of art. Clothes were

every care was given them until they
literally went to pieces. Some one who
lived in those days���a dear old lady-

of pride, because the mending wns the
best kind of art���useful.
Place the torn spot in an embroidery
hoop, if possible, and then take a long
hair, from a head of brown or black
hair, and darn with a very, very fine
needle hack and forth, taking up
threads away beyond the tear on both
sides. Press tho spot with a warm
fliitiron, after dampening It slightly on
tho wrong side, and it is finished.

The fact that Bileans are

Bileans and old fashioned
medicines^ Bileana occupy tbe
foremost place as a cure for
biliousness, constipation, piles,
sleeples-ne-s, indigestion, headache, dizziness, and all stomach and
bowel compla'ntfj. ''
First, B.leans are purely vegetable. Tbey contain none of the
minsral pxsons (m~r ury, calomel, bismuth, etc) such as are found in
the older pills. They are i repared from a formula altogether unique,
and posse?s ng a strictly natural action on the system. They do not
gripe, weaken or purge. They suit young and old. They promote
digest.on���give tone to the walls of the stomach and bowels
brace up tbe tirad nerves and stimulate the liver. Equally
to the housewife in the home, the daughter engaged in the
offics or s'ore, and the farmer, Bil-ani are an indispensable boon.

"Kelt dull and sleepy, had no energy whatever (or work, and every now aud again
I had a bad attack ot blllou~ness. The food I ate seemed to lie heavy on my stomach
and did uic no good. I had wind and cramps in the stomach and bowels from the
food decomposing. The constipation was so bad that my bowels had to be forced at
ouch pansage. All kinds of medicines I tried, but nothing did me any lasting good
until 1 got Itileans. 1 have never found anything to equal them for constipation, liver
t'nd stomach troubles. They soon began to do tne good and in the end oured me.
Since then I feel like a different woman. I am bright and buoyant in spirits, not dull
and sleepy as I used to be. I have got my energy and activity back; and, in fact,
all mj ailments have yielded to Bileans."

There was a time wheu it was not

man to choose anything but one of the
learned professions. When- these failed to support him he turned his ability toward the mechanical, industrial
and commercial occupations and made
professions of them. There is no reason why women should not organize
and promote those employments from
which the cry for help comes incessantly. Housekeeping, cookiug, dressmaking, costume designing and the
care of children are down In tbe
depths for want of cultured intelligent
organization. Because they have been
considered menial does not make It
necessary for them to remain so. Every one knows instances where somo

Python and Tiger Fight on Shipboard
���The Huge Reptile Only Lasted a Few Minutes.
Of the voyage ot the British steamer
Indrashimo from ' Singapore to New
York, and what happened when a bis
sea was shipped, The New York Times
tells this story. The vessel carried
among its side lines of cargo a tiger
and Ave huge pythons. During the
storm a tremendous sea came over the
starboard side of the quarter-deck and
swept with great violence to the after-
end of the alleyway, where the tiger
and the snakes had been confined for
security in the-bad wealher. The sea
stove in the temporary bulkhead and
washed away the support to the tiger's
cage. The boxes In which the pythons
were kept were smashed and the great
snakes floated abiut in the starboard
alleyway, while the tiger was swimming In his cage to keep himself above
water. His roar frightened "Bill," the
ship's cat, so badly that he left the
cook's galley and hid himself In tho
bo'sun's locker.
When Chief Officer Evans, a bronzed,
bearded and salty-looking man. went
aft he thought for a moment that the
Indrashima had shipped some cables'
lengths of real sea serpent. The lon.T.
undulating colls of the snakes seemed
to reach from the after hatch to the
stern of the ship. Tho ofilc-r then realized that the captain's pets ivore adrift.
The four largest pythons aggregate l
100 feet; the longest measured 27 feet,
the next 26. while tbe two ethers were
23 and 24 feet long respectively. And
their girths? Well, they a''erat-ed up
to nearly two and a half feet each. According to the Malay bo's'n. the pythons were so fiigh'ened when they
found themselves sllilinf* about In the
salt water that they linked themselves
up. end to end, for mutual protection.
The bo'sun declares that snakes In
Lahore, where these reptiles came from
always loop themselves together when
trouble breaks loose.
The fifth python, which measured
about 22 feet, and came from Djogla-
Jakarta, did not Join his fellows, but
wriggled through the bars of Nero's
cage and Interrupted the striped monarch of the jungle In his swimming exercise. The tiger, seemingly annoyed
at the Intrusion, did not waste any
time in tedious preliminaries, but went
for the python and ripped him with his
powerful claws. The snake tried vainly to twist his colls around the body ot
his enemy, but he was handicapped by
the heavy seas which kept dashing
down the alleyway and swamping the
The encounter lasted about five minutes, when, with a sound like the ripping "of a big piece of calico, Nero tore
the serpent asunder. The water which
flowed back from the alleyway was dyed crimson, and at first, the chief officer
thought that a human being had fallen
a victim to the tiger. With the daring
of an experienced snnke-charmer Evans
seized the twenty-seven footer by the
neck and tucked two feet of him under
his arm. Then the ship's carpenter
supported another two feet, followed
by the rest of the crew, each wrestling
with a two-foot section, until' they had
the big snake under control, when he
was laid away In the locker In assorted
The chief officer called the captain
and then ordered the bo'sun to pipe all
hands aft to capture the snakes, and
confine them In the potato locker until
the carpenter could rig up a new box
for them.
The crew and the midshipmen mus
tered fourteen. Including the bo'sun, so
that If the python had been much longer there, would hav* been more than
enough of him to go around. After the
largest snake had been disposed of the
other three were caught In the same
manner and stowed away.
The skin of the dead python was
dried and stuffed under the directions
of Captain Wilkes, who had It hung
up In the saloon as a memento of the
voyage. The Indrashima. It may be
mentioned, is a very "dry" ship, ami
carries a pious crew.

bad weather was the cause of still another act of kingly gallaatry. While
about ten minutes' walk from his hotel
the King was overtaken by a heavy
shower of rain. Although without the
protection of an overcoat, he carried an
umbrella, and proceeded to avail himself of Its shelter as he tramped back
to the hotel wltrr-vigorous strides. He
had scarcely covered half tbe distance
when he noticed an old lady, a native
of the place, with her head bent downward trying to make headway against
the heavy shower. The King In a moment crossed over and placed his umbrella In the old lady's hand, while she,
in the Intervals of astonishment, heaped blessings on the head of the good-
natured stranger. "Send it to the hotel
when you have finished with it," said
the King carelessly, as he prepared for
a brisk walk. "Who shall I say it':;
for?'' asked the grateful old dame. "Address It to the Duke of Lancaster," answered His Majesty as he moved away
leaving the old lady prostrated with
awe as the Identity of her good Samaritan dawned upon her. Next day
