ftnc Men Ask Tariff Commission For Protective
Zinc Tariff.
The Zlne Mines or the Slocan Will
Take a New Lease oi Life if
Petition Is Favored.
A petition was drafted last Saturday
liy tlie principal zinc mine owners in
Kootenay, and forwarded to Finance
Minister Fielding, who is chairman of
the Tariff Commission, asking for immediate change in the tariff. We understand that the case presented by the
zinc mine owners fairly represents their
views as to necesaary change in the
tariff which will successfully establish
the zinc industry in this province. It
will be seen that the mine owners are at
lust aroused to the fact that concerted
action is necessary to place the zinc industry on a sound basis.
The following is the petition:
Hon. W. S. Fielding Minister of Finance,
Chairman ot   'tariff   Commission,
Sir,���Your memorialists, who are interested in the mining and smelting of
zinc ores in the province of Britisli Columbia, have withheld their case for
tariff changes, awaiting the report of
the special commission appointed to in*
vesti^ate the zinc resources of. British
Columbia, which has only at this moment come, into our hands.
During tlie year which has elapsed
since the collection of the information
embodied iu that report, conditions as
therein set forth have not materially
changed, certainly not for the belter.
The tariff ruling of the United States
imposing a duty of 20 per cent on zinc
ore remains in force, and has been
somewhat unexpetcdly construed to include duty on the silver as well ai the
zinc contents of the ore.
The Cana I Ian Metal Co.'a plant at
Frank has produced a few tons of spelter, but is now idle an 1 required in addition to the sum of 1400,000 al-cady expended, a further sum of $100,000 for its
The tendency of the s Ivor-lead mines
to become zinc mines has become more
pronounced, but owing to the lack of
market either at home or abroad, shipments have almost entirely ceased and
such zinc ore as is necessarily produced
in connection with lead mining is accumulating at the mines and concentrators.
The Frank p'ant has presently installed rive blocks of furnaces, of which
at least three Mocks must be kept in
continuous operation to secure any economically profitable result.
The total capacity of five blocks is
5500 tons per annum and the chief problem which confronts the company is
that of li tiding a market for this quantity
of spelter.
The Canadian market (vide zinc report, page 55) is good for over 8000 tons
per annum, and is at present supplied
largely from United States sources, the
zinc smelters of New York having a
freight rate of 25cts, and those in Illinois a freight rate of 30 cts. per 100 lbs.
to eastern Canadian points as against a
rate of 65 cents per 100 lbs. obtainable
from Frank.
The principal uses of zinc ore are ai
a constituent of paints, also of brass to
the extent of 40 per cent, in sheets and
pipes, aud largely in the galvanic coating of iron and steel sheets, pipes and
The Page-Herscy Iron, Tub* St. Lead
Co., Ltd., of Ouelph, Ontario, is a large
perhaps the principal importer of zinc
in Canada.
Outside of Canada the only available
market is the European, to reach which
we must pay for freight charges a rate
ol 88 cents per 100 lbs., leaving, with
spelter at the present high quotation of
��27 per long ton, a nctt return of $4.95
per 100 lbs.
This figure (vide zinc report, page 100)
docs not promise to afford any profit.
Unfortuualely the prospect for improvement in price is not very favorable
owing to the expected enormous production of the waste dumps of the Broken
Hill Mines, New South Wales.
The production of 5500 tons of spelter
will involve the shipment and treatment
of 15,000 tons of concentrates, and this
in turn would be produced from 75,000
tons of raw ore and the fuel requirement
of the smelter would amount to 40,000
tons of coal, involving a turnover of
over half a million dollars per annum
nearly all of which would be spent in
the country for labor and supplies.
In aid of the efforts of those endeavoring lo create this new industry in Canada, we beg to request that your honor'
able body will recommend to parliament
such changes in the customs tariff as
will put zinc and its products on the
same basis as commodities of similar
We beg to submit, subject to such re
vision as to  details as your honorable
body may see fit to make, the accompanying schedule which we believe to
be substantially equitable:

Referring again to the report of the
zinc commission, (vide pages 58-54), we
call attention to the heavy handicap
against which this industry in its initial stages must contend, owing to the
heavy cost (equal to about 40 per cent
above that occuring in United States
smelters) of all labor, and the entire lack
of labor having the necessary technical
We cannot guarantee that the tariff
changes herein asked for will be the
limit of the public aid necessary to put
this industry on a stable footing.
It may become necessary, as it has in
the case of iron and lead, that the dominion government be asked to aid this
industry by the way of a direct bounty,
but as your honorable body is concerned
at present with tariff changes, we bring
before you now only that aspect of the
Mems. from Slocan City

Evening last.
Jack Lee, a duck hunter, of Dawson,
has made a partial verification of that
old fable about the goose that laid the
golden eggs. He shot a wild duck on
the Klondike flats, and subsequently it
was found that the birds craw was full
of sand carrying twelve gold colors. The
bird with others had been bought from
Lee by Colonel Williams, of the Bonanza basin dredge, and it was Colonel
Williams who discovered the gold.
Where the duck got the gold is a
question. It is known there is gold on
the Klondike River bottom, but probably not so plentiful in any one known
spot is to permit a duck to pan twelve
colors with one cropfull of sand.
The duck is a widgeon. It doubtless
was on the way south with other birds
of paasage. Somewhere in the vast
North, it appears, that the duck must
have fed on the golden sands which
would be a halcyon spot for the eager
prospector. Colonel Williams thinks
that since the ducks craw can hold the
gold so well that perhaps he bag there
obtained the idea for a new gold saving
mat that will beat the cocoa screen all
It is verv satisfactory to learn that
the zinc mine owners have at las* got
down to business. We have no hesitation in saying that the establishment of
the zinc industry in Kootenay will mean
much for lhe whole of the province.
It will mean also that the zinc mines
around Slocan will once again be employing large numbers of skilled miners
and a prosperous era will ensue. To
place the industry on a sound basis, a
petition has been forwarded to Finance
Minister Fielding, chairman of the
Tariff commission, asking that certain
changes be effected in the tariff. The
petition asks that galvanized barb wire,
brass blocks, wire, (galvanized) and
spelter blocks, pigs sheets, etc., now
admitted free, be subject to a tariff of
25 per cent; that the present tariff on
zinc white, 5 per cent, be increased to
30 per cent; that the tariff on galvanized
plates, now 5 per cent, be increased to
25 per cent; that the tariff on galvanized
tubing, now 15 per cent, be increased to
20 per cent, and that the 25 percent
tariff on zinc man, of N. E. S. be increased to 85 per cent.
Pest-Office Destroyed, tut Malls and
Records Safe. Damage Is
Estimated at $6,600.
Fire I Fire! Fire in the Post-office.
That was the startling cry which disturbed the worshippers of various denominations at their devotions on Sunday
evening last at New Denver. In a few
minutes all waa confusion. Pastors
hurriedly pronounced benediction, and
crowds rushed to the Post-office to witness the ravages of the devouring element or lend what assistance they could.
A few men were near the spot just after
the alarm was sounded, and salvage was
immediately proceeded with. In this
they were successful, as all the postal
records and mails were saved, as were
also; the office fixtures, household furniture and safe. Scarcely had these
been removed when the building was
enveloped in flames.
The work of tbe fire brigade was not
so fruitful as it deserved to be, by reason
of inadequate hose, as tlie fire quickly
spread, and in a few minutes the Williamson block with a mighty roar burst
into flames. It was seen that further
attempts to save the building would be
futile, and all energy waa concentrated
on the adjoining buildings.
All the available hose was ere this
on the scene, and willing hands directed
copious streams upon adjacaut blocks.
It was feared that several other buildings
would go, but the untiring efforts of the
brigade, (coupled with the favorable
recent rains and absence of wind) were
The loss is approximately $ 6,500, and
it is partly covered by insurance.
There were two stores in the Williamson block, one was recently, occupied by
Charles Rashdale, and the other by Mrs.
Williams as ��-dry a, m ���sand millinery
store.   The origin of the firtrls unknown.
George Huston, late editor of tbe
Sandon Mining Standard, commenting
on the views of -J. #. Cavanaugh, re the
reduction in smelter charges to $10 per
ton, writes as follows to the ikily News:
" As you know I was one of the fighters lor better terms for our producers,
while running the Sandon Mining Standard. A square up and up fighter must
sink predjudices to the common good,
and I wish to place before your readers
some facts that should allow a more extensive advertising of your resources in
lead, and which should result in turning
some capital your way. You should
advertise the facts far and wide, giving
your plants and railways full credit.
Please note the copy of the contract
in force in the Couer d'Alenes for lend
ore. This is accurate and Under its
terms the producer in this region is receiving but little if any more, than what
is received in British Columbia from
tho native plants. In other words, the
price received for lead ore in British Columbia, is about Ihe same as Is received
in the Couer d'Alenes, and this despite
the (act of high tariff and higher prices.
Taking this contract as a basis, it is
easily figured out, using the ore Mr.
Cavanaugh employed, viz..: 60 per cent
pb. 100 oz. ajr. When the question of
fuel, power, timber, or* richnes, etc., is
considered, British Columbia has away
the best ol it. Here they go in for systematic deep mining, That is putting
the country on its feet. If the same
wero done in British Columbia, there
would be little doubt of success there
also. I want to add my bit of commendation for the reduction of smelter charges.
As to fair treatment, well you should
hear the kicks here."
The contract referred to by Mr. Huston is too lengthy to publish in full, but
it appears that the lead miners of Idaho
are not getting the beat of the deal
with th* Smelting Ttust.
" Pa, how do they extract ore from
the mines?" asked little Pearl.
" Well" said old Pay Rent, " sometimes if a mine needs developing, they
begin by extracting some coin from the
pockets of Eastern investors, or, in
other words, tenderfoots."
The Denver Mining Record in a recent issue carries an illuminating article
on mine salting. The gist of it is that
no competent mining engineer can be
led astray by any of the current tricks,
and that mine buyers should be sure
they have a man that measures up these
requirements, and have his report before taking over the mine. Theartiele
also condemns the practice of buying a
mine and examining it afterward. The
same advice with added emphasis can
also be given so those investors who
get their stock first and their infornia
tion about its real worth later on.

We have previously mentioned in the
Review that we stand for the best inter-
ests of 8andon-first,last, and all the time,
and nothing but the welfare of the
city is in our mind as we write the following remarks. We regret the necessity which makes it incumbent upon
us to refute a statement which appeared
in the editorial columns of the Nelson
Daily News of the 6th inst., the full
report of which, for our readers' edification, we print below:
The Kaslo Kootenaian publishes a
significant statement from the president
of the Minnesota Sliver Co., F. R. Ross,
of Detroit, who recently visited Sandon
to look over the Ivanhoe mine, one of
the properties'.owned by his company in
that camn.
Asked by the Kootenaian what were
the prospects of resuming operations at
the Ivanhoe, Mr. Ross ia reported to
have replied:
' No, we are not going to do anything
at present. 21 may tell you, though, that
I came up here with the intention of
starting up the Ivanhoe, on account of
the continued high prices for silver and
lead, but I did not like the attitude predominant in labor circles at Sandon.
There has got to ba a change of feeling
before much in the mining line will be
done up there. We intended puttiug 76
or 80 men to work, bat on account of
certain conditions from th* cause mentioned, have decided otherwise. I am
leaving for Detroit to-morrow, and expect to return again to Sandon next
June, If a change of feeling in labor
circles for a better understanding with
many managers takes place before|then,
there will be something doing nt Ihe
Ivanhoe, if not, the mine will remain
The foregoing appeared in the Kootenaian of last week and lhe Dailv News
has since been at some pains to ascertain the grounds of Mr. Ross* strictures.
We learn that Mr. Rons' complaint is
not without foundation, but that his
criticism of Sandon labor circles is a
little too sweeping. There does exist in
Sanpon an element apparently bent
upon making trouble and preventing resumption of mining operations in that
camp on an extensive scale. This element, however, Joe* not inclnde the
bulk of the union men, though for obvious reason] these men are loth to
make any public expression of their
sentim nits. The chief fomentor ol
trouble is, we learn upon vety good
���authority, that thorough-going supporter of the McBride government and recent convert lo socialism, W. II. David-1
ton, M.P.P., who apparenty is more
concerned to fabricate some excuse for
bis continued political existence than
to serve thehest interests of the constituency be misrepresents in the local
This is a somewhat bald statement of
facts, but there are times when it is
best to omit the trimmings.
The situation ii one that the miners,
mine owners and business men of Sandon must face tquaielv. They must d ���
decide whether or not tbe prosperity of
the camp is lo be at the mercy of a few
soreheads. We believe a little plain
speaking at this juncture is the best
service that can be rendered the Sandon
mining camp, and we have endeavored
to say what we have to say on the subject in language that is perfectly dear
and intelligible, however lacking It may
be in polish."
Wa do not think that the Kootenaian
acted as diplomatically as it may have
have done, but we let that pass. We
cannot, however, allow the reported
statement of Mr. Poss to go unchallenged and unrefuted. The interviewed gentleman may or may not have visited
Sandon for the purpose of putting 75
or 80 men to work at the mine mentioned. If such were his intentions
there was nothing to prevent bin doing
so. Mr. Poss did not make any endeavor whilst here to ascertain the true
feeling in labor circles first-handed.
Suffice it to say that the labor trouble is
purely imaginary and that there is not
an idle man in town. Wo have good
grounds for stating that Mr. Poss' visit
was concerned more with the sale of the
company's upper tram system to a local
company who wanted it for their own
property. This is en passant, but the
deal was made, nevertheless. If Mr.
Poss had any notion of resuming mining
operations, it is a most unbusinesslike
proceeding to tear down the means of
transporting supplies up and the ore
down. We say we have our doubts as to
his reported intentions, and for another
reason: All or any of the Ivanhoe workings are open for leasing, as also they
have been for the past twelve months.
We assert that there is nothing to prevent the Ivanhoe or any other property
starting up and putting as many men as
they desire to work. Some inconvenience has been experienced by the|man-
agement of the Last Chance through a
scarcity of labor on the one hand and
the result of experimenting with Chinese
kitchen help on the other, but manager
Pratt informs us that lie is perfectly
satisfied with the big crew he has
secured from outside points aud that
everything   ia  moving smoothly.     In
other words the axiom " A burden
which one chooses is not felt" is prac-
demonstrated to carry merit. Under
any circumstances it would be a matter
of impossibly to secure such a number
of local miners as Mr. Poss is reported
to have needed, and the example of
other mine managers could have been
emulated bad he seriously meant business.   But to our muttons:
Tha Daily NewB goes on to say that it
" hns since been at some pains to ascertain the grounds of Mr. ' Ross' '
strictures." That is a lie, and the D.N.
convicts itself and proves its unreliability
when it glaringly shows that it dies not
know the first thing about it. If the
Daily News had " been at some pains "
to secure reliable data, tho very first
move would have been to correctly name
the gentleman. Poss it is���not "Ross."
Note tbe "P" and the number of times
the News prints Ross.
The IXiily News would have us believe
that it; is prompted by a mediatory
influence for our welfare, but the whole
fabric is so flimsy nnd transparent that
a more suckling could discern the
editor's real and sinister purpose. It
is painfully evident that it is a carefully
conceived but clumsily arranged article
in which editor Deane can give vent to
his splenetic venom upon the object of
his wrath, and opportunity taken to
drive in the political wedge. But his
methods are a menace to the prosperity
of the Sandon camp. Mr. Deane may
follow up his rabid, lick-spittle, claptrap policy in his own little world just
so long as he is suffered, but when he
smirches the fair name of Sandon
by his malignant methods���he taps an
hornet's nest.
" This is a somewhat bald statement
of facts," squawks the D.N. editor. We
ask the intelligent reader to analyse the
diatribe and digest tbe " bald " facts.
What facts has he produced? None;
absolutely none! They are so bald
there is nothing to gra��p; so heaven
alone knows the mythical depths of tlie
" trimmings."
We hold no brief for Mr. Davidson;
neither do we expect him to do otherwise than treat tlie scurrilous article
with the contempt it doserves. By pos-
i'ig as a doughty champion of the Silver
City, Mr. Deane makes himself vain-
gloriously ridiculous, for it is too well
known he is more concerned in slinging
editorial mud at everyone whose political
views antagonise his own. Therefore,
political significance will always be
attached to, and capital made out of
anything which can be logically twisted
by the political crank who pushes his
leu for the edification of a few pinheads.
The knocker is a human rattlesnake
with the rattles off. He never lets you
know he is going to strike until he shoots
a bunch of venom into you, and then he
crawls off and lets the poison work.
We hold no bri f f >r tho -JMiners'
Union; we are not hide-bound to any
party or clique, and when any danger
looms on the horizon from labor or
other sources, we may be depended on
to sound tho alarm and report faithfully
and unbiassed. We believe the small
trouble re the Chinese kitchen help will
adjust itself, and there was no need for
the Daily Nelson to probe this minute
sore and tear it into an ugly gash so
that it could appoint itself physician and
apply tho healing salve. The P,N. undoubtedly enjoys a large circulation, and
we deplore the fact that the knocking
article will be clipped and filed in the
office of many a financier to be trotted
out to the disadvantage of this camp
when opportunity presents itself.
Now we have broached the subject, it
may be as well to discuss the purely
local Chinese kitchen-help trouble. A
few of the mine managers have undoubtedly had cause to regret their experience in one or two instances with
" white " cooks. It is a serious matter
for a mine manager to discover a big
gang of his men waiting for breakfast
and to learn that bin cook is down the
hill on a drunken jamboree. Several
instances have occurred also in which
the " white " cook, brooding over some
real or fancied grievance, lias impulsively tore off his apron, rolled his
blankets, and quit the job cold. Some
of the mine managers argue that for this
reason a C hinaman is preferred. He,
they claim, will not leave a body of men
in the lurch and the manager in a
serious predicament. " John " has always a brother or cousin handj who
will fill his shoes on short notice, and
so Chinese kitchen help has been installed at one of Sandon's banner mines.
We believe this matter can be adjusted to the satisfaction of all if a little
tact i$ displayed. It is not to be supposedfor ono moment that the Miners'
Union or any other body of men will
endorse such actions of their cooks.
We believe the Miners' Union should
be in a position,���1st, to guarautee that
the cooks supplied are proficient, industrious and sober; 2nd, that all cooks
contract for a Btated period, and 3rd,
than adequate notice of quitting be
handed to the manager if the contract
has lapsed. The union could reasonably adopt such methods, as their
members at the mino are directly and
distinctly the '.employers of the cooks.
It would be a satisfactory condition for
both mine manager and man, as the
former would be protected from an
arrogant, inexperienced "hashsliuger,"
and the  union  would  thus  weed out
those undesirables who are a menace
to its constitution and a disgrace to an
honorable profession. Under such a
desired order of things the Chinese cook
would be a relic of bygone days, and
a better cla*s of labor would predominate at the mines, for the reason that
tho ban would be lifted.
There is no excuse for the employment of Chinese help to the exclusion
of white labor other than the causes
specified. We can point with pride to
the fact that all the dividend-paying
mines of the camp made the money for
stockholders when there no Chinanen
anywhere near tbe camp. It is not in
our province to show how a boarding
house should be conducted, but when
the famous Slocan Star inine was in the
hey-day of its mining activity,excellent
results were obtained from the boarding
house for the very good reason that they
were wise enough to contract it out.
There were no kicks. Everything went
along smoothly. The management
attended to the more serious business
of mining, and the caterer ran the commissariat. Tbe latter cleaned up at the
end of his contract nearly 112,000, and
the management had received from the
caterer 20 cents per day per man as a
bonus. The next caterer made the substantial sum of $10,000.
There is another point which weighs
very heavily with the men. In any
established mining camp in the west a
regular boarder at an hotel can, generally speak irg, fare like a prince. He
can dine in comfort amid pleasant surroundings, sleep in a clean, comfortable
bed, and all for the average rate of $1.00
per day. A miner ia taxed the same
amount for his board at the mine, but
hoar different are the conditions ? He
iB compelled to supply his own blankets,
and his ''bedstead" is invariably [an
old shake-down of hard lagging and
hay. Under the circumstances then,
and at the risk of being called agitators,
we think it but just that a body of men,
union or otberwbe, should have the
privilege of deciding, or at least saying
who shall prepare their meals. It requires rather a big stretch of imagination to call it a " labor trouble" when
a man refuses to eat after a Chinaman.
The sentimental side of the subject
does not bothei us oue whit. We are
more concerned over justice for both
���ides, and we look for an amicable settlement in lhe near future.

The little church of Valfleurl, where
Robert and Edmee were to be married, was delightfully situated in a
deep hollow traversed by a pretty
rippling brook. The prosperous and
coquettish village, composed principally of rich farms, nestled in the
shadow of the chateau of the
Marquis de Saint Pierre, an imposing mass, gray and somewhat somber, standing in the midst of magnili-
cent gardens.
The church, though so small and
simple, was pure in form and graceful In poi-portlons; its portico even
had pretensions to the Gothic. But its
chief beauty lay In Its adornment of
Ivy, which, little by little, had climbed
over the whole edifice. Nowhere did
the Ivy seem more tenacious, more Insolent, more flourishing In Its prosperity than In this spot where thousands of birds nestled in its verdure,
and where the church Itself resembled a vast nest, well protected and
The cure would not have touched
this Ivy for anything in the world; he
was extremely proud of It and a ttach-
ed to It with a sort of superstition.
The Lord had undertaken the decoration of this humble village church,
and the Lord knew what, he was doing.
No church In the neighborhood could
boast of anything like it.
On the morning of the great day,
the good priest presided In person
over the work of tlie sexton. A marriage such as this one was not an
everyday occurrence, and he must, do
honor to it. Loads of plants and flowers had been sent from the chateau
for the decoration of the altars; and
the cure, with his soutane tucked up,
dissatisfied with the sexton's tasle,
was distributing enormous bunches of
flowers and tufts of verdure to the
best of his ability.
"What a pity Marthe could not
decorate the altar herself!" he said,
regretfully. "Women���though so inferior In many things���have a veritable genius for arranging flowers."
This speech of unquestionable ecclesiastical gallantry was addressed
to no one in particular, but rather expressed the embarrassment of the
priest, who did not feel equal to the
occasion. It was, however, overheard
by Dame Franeolse, his somewhat
tyrannical housekeeper, who looked
down on her master with a Bhade of
"Bah! Monsieur le Cure," she said,
severely. "The women you love to
put back in their place, as you say,
can take care of themselves. And
where would you be yourself, I would
like to know, if some one did not take
care of you?"
"I did not mean to offend you, my
good Franeolse," he apologized. "I
was speaking to myself. Tl-ose flowers don't seem well arranged somehow or other, what do you think of
"I say they will do well enough for
the little attention they will attract.
Besides, I have a vague presentiment
that this fine marriage will not take
The priest trembled nervously and
stumbled down the. altar steps.
"You have heard something, Franeolse?" he asked, tremulously. "Is
there anything new?"
"I don't know just what there is,
but I am sure there Is something. The
baker has just returned from Villerville, and says tho whole village is
aroused; that on the beach nothing is
spoken of but���you know what."
"I was In hopes that those abominable calumnies had died out since a
few weeks. To think that we are
powerless to stop those rumors that
float In the air, as powerless as we
are to stop the wind itself!"
"It is very queer that they suspect
nothing at the chateau," muttered
Franeoise. "If I were in your place,
"You would cast gloom and sorrow
In the midst of their joy. No, I am
sure those rumors will die out as they
came. Why grieve innocent people?
They feel that they are surrounded by
some secret enmity, but do not guess

But the good man was anxious and
ill-at-ease. He walked nervously to
and fro, consulted the sky, a somewhat
obscure sky, with a few patches of
blue hore and there, the calm sky of
a September morning. He glanced Inward the village, which seemed almost asleep, the peasants having
mostly gone to the fields. Nothing, absolutely  nothing yet.
Then he tried to cnlleet his uneasy
thoughts. The sermon he had prepared
beforehand only half pleased him.

thresholds, protecting their eyes with

Marthe. from the depth of her carriage, had noticed this unexpected
erowd at the approach of the village.
Something of hostility, an ill-stifled
murmur, scornful glances, had struck
her, The painful numbness in vhich
she had lived during the past few
weeks, which made her act as If In a
dream, was pierced by an inexpressible anguish. At that moment she understood, or rather suspected, that
these people aeeused Robert of an
nbominable crime bv which he had
won Edmee from a detested rival.
This she saw in the malignant glances of the envious peasants.
"Look, Marthe, how the people love
us!" exclaimed Mme. d'Ancel, who
was not of an observing nature; "our
families have relieved so much misery!"
This new anxiety had its good effect, however. For weeks Marthe had
been asking herself how she would
control her feelings at the supreme
moment. By the light of her passion,
she had discovered bidden recesses of
her nature, capacities of violent, ferocious jealousies, of hatred almost, that
frightened and humiliated her. She
felt like an abominable hypoA'ile
when her friends lauded her devotion,
her kindness, her generosity, her absolute forgetfulness of self. Her affection for Edmee, which still survived,
had gone through moments of rebellion, almost of avergjpn, as on that
memorable Thursday, while the storm
was gathering, the scorching atmosphere had been suddenly shaken by
an icy brealh. Apd sometimes her passion for Robert terribly resembled
hatred. All this, however, she had
succeeded in hiding under a sort of
cold apathy. Would she succeed In
hiding It until the end?
But now she was thinking more of
the curious hostility of the peasants
than of her personal agony. It seemed
to her that she was still called upon
to protect, to prove her courage and
firmness. She had never been deaf to
that cry, and would respond to It now.
Her true nobility of nature had taken
lhe ascendancy and would henceforth
retain it.
Edmee was by no means a pale,
timid, trembling bride. She was radiant with happiness, and this happiness
gave extraordinary eclat to her
beauty. The Marquis, with head erect,
advanced to offer her his arm, and
turned for an Instant, before entering
the church, to cast a haughty glance
at tho surging crowd. The crowd now
appeared leas hostile. Beauty Is a
sovereign before which all bow as If
by instinct, and never had these peasants seen a creature as marvelously
beautiful as this blonde bride with
dark eyes, who smiled so radiantly at
(he life that opened before her. This
vision had more influence than the
Marquis' haughty glance.
The ceremony was short and very
simple; the few words pronounced by
the good cure came from the heart
and went straight to the heart. All
those who had succeeded in entering
the church were softened. Martha saw
or rather felt It. From the moment she
had left home to the eud of the mass,
she had feared she knew not what, hut
had feared, she knew not what, but
something vague, menacing, something that had long been impending,
that she had seen for the first time
that morning.
But a few hours more and Robert
and his bride would be far from these
vile gossips' infamous accusations,
which for want of ailment would die
out and be forgotten. The desire to
see Robert, in safety, out of reach, was
so strong wilhin her that she almost
forgot her pain; she forgot that this
marriage was being consummated under her eyes, that Robert and Edmee
were exchanging vows that made them
husband and wife, words that united
them for life, until death, and she
suffered much less than she had often
suffered at the exchange of a glance
between them, or a too prolonged pressure of their hands.
Leaning on her husband's arm, Edmee came out of the church radiant
as joy itself, smiling on everybody,
bowing right and left like a little
queen, and the faces that turned toward her had lost their sneering, evil
expression. A mother, holding a pretty
child In her arms, rubbed against the
rich satin dress. Edmee turned and
the baby smiled at her, stretching out
his little arms.
"You pretty baby!' exclaimed the
bride, "I must kiss you. You will bring
me luck!"
A murmur of approval greeted this
gracious caress which won her all the
mothers' hearts. The return to the
chateau was affected without the display of the least feeling of hostility,
and In the midst of the gay.laughter
and bantering of tbe young people.
Marthe breathed more freely. It
doemed to her that the battle was
Th vast dining-room. In which the
former proprietors had received their
sovereigns, and which was now rarely
used, had been opened and decorated
for the occasion. In the centre stood
an enormous table resplendent with
rare old plate, crystals and flowers.
And yet, neither the dazzling decorations, the brilliant toilets of the women, nor even the two bright fires In
the vast chimney places, succeeded In
removing the gloom. A little of the
humidity and obscurity of the old unused rooms produced a vague impression of sadness, and the laughter of
the young girls echoed strangely In
the Immensity of this gloomy room.
Nevertheless the breakfast dragged
on,���and Marthe, as hostess, was
forced to smile and do the honors;
and, as the time passed on, her torture became unendurable. The bride
and groom, seated side by side, often
exchanged whispered words. Edmee,
a little paler than usual, smiled and
seemed perfectly happy, while Robert
saw and heard no one but her.
Finally the guests departed; farewells and good wishes filled the drawing-rooms with almost dizzying noise;
Edmee disappeared to change her
satin dress for a traveling costume;
In another quarter of an hour all
would be over.
Marthe was taking leave of the
Marquis, thanking him once more with
effusion. As he was about to enter his
carriage, he looked at her and Bald,
"Promise to take care of yourself,
my dear child, to rest, for you have
need of It."

"You know, my little friend, he
said gravely, "that If you ever need

Marthe thanked him with an Inclination of the head, not daring to
sp-ak for fear of betraying herself.
Mme, d'Ancel and Aunt Relie now
alone remained In the drawing-room.
Martha was hastenln<- awn* for a few
moments' respite before the departure of the bridal eouple, when a servant announced that a gentleman
wished to see Monsieur le baron d'Ancel.
"You will find him in the blue room
where I had his trunk placed," she
Then, thinking it must be a friend
of Robert's who had come late for the
marriage and was bringing his congratulations, she went loward the little parlor into which he had been
shown. As she passed through the hall
Robert appeared at the top of tho
"My  brother-in-law will he here in
a moment -" Bhe began.
Something in the altitude of the
young man who bowed respectfully
before her struck Marthe strangely.
Without knowing why, she felt frightened. Robert now entered hurriedly,
expecting to find a friend, but at the
sight of the stranger he stopped and
said, coldly:
"I beg your pardon, Monsieur, but
do you know that I have just been
married and that I leave   In    a   few
minutes with my wife "
The tone In which he said "my wife"
rang out like a Joyous boast. Marthe
Involuntarily shuddered. The stranger,
somewhat embarrassed, drew himself

Oliver Wendell Holmes professed to

to call "the European aborigines of
America" being Dutch, He gave au
aspect of slyness to his respect which
inspired the idea that It was uot Un-
tempered by humor, but he maintained
thiil the Dutch, in spite of their stolidity, hud a great deal of humor themselves. "For Instance," he would say,
"the crumpet story has a Dutch origin." "What is the crumpet story?"
people would ask. And he would tell
them that il had many variants, but
the one with which he was familiar
was about a mnu who was going to be
hanged and was asked whether he had
any last request to make and said be
'vould like to have a dozen hot crumpets, very buttery, because he had never dared to out more than one before.

A Common  Trouble  Among  Growing

Needed���Dr.    Williams'    Pink
Pills    Actually    Make
New Blood.
There are thousands of young men
just approaching manhood' who have
no energy, who tire out at tlie least
exertion, and who ieel by the time
they have done their day's work as
though the day were a week long. In
some of these cases there is a further
sign of warning in the pimples and
disfiguring eruptions which break out
on the face. These are certain signs
that the blood is out of order, and
unless it is promptly enriched, ��.
complete breakdown, or perhaps consumption may be the result. All
these yount, men should take Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. These pills actually make rich, red blood, clear the
skin of pimples nnd eruptions, and
bring health, strength and energy.
Here is a bit of proof. Adolphe Rol-
land, St. Jerome, Que., is a young
man of nine years, who says: "For
more than a year I suffered from general weakness, and I gradually grew
so weak that I was forced to abandon
my work as a cleiK, My appetite
failed me, 1 hud occasional violent
headaches, and I began to suffer from
indigestion. I was failing so rapidly
that I began to fear consumption was
fastening itself upon me. Our family
doctor treated me, but 1 did not gain
under his care. 1 was in a very discouraged state when a friend from
Montreal came to see me. He strongly advised nie to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. I did so and inside of
three weeks I began to feel better, my
appetite began to improve and I
seemed to have a feeling of new courage. I continued tlie pills until I had
taken ten boxes und 1 am now enjoying the best of health 1 ever had.
My cure surprised many of my
friends who began to regard me" as
incurable, and I strongly advise other
young men who are weak to follow
my example and give Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills a fair trial."
There is no mystery about the cures
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make. These
pills actually make rich, red blood,
which braces and strengthens every
organ and every nerve in the body.
That is why these pills cure all common ailments like iiuemia, rheumatism, indigestion, neuralgia, St. Vitus
dance, headaches and backaches and
the special ailments of women and
growing girls. You can get these pills
from any dealer in medicine or from
The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,
Brockville, Ont., at 50 cents a box
or  six  boxes  for  $2.50.

Words utterly fail to describe the
suffering caused by piles and the
cruel treatments sometimes recommended Ior their cure, such as, surgical operations and burning with red
hot' iron.
It may be truthfully stated that
piles produce more excruciating pain
misery and wretchedness of feeling
than any known disease. Life becomes
a perfect burden during the attacks
of itching, burning and stinging
It is a great mistdKe to imagine
that the effects of piles are local, for,
as a matter of fact, they sap the vitality of mind and body and slowly
but surely lead to the ruination of
the health. This is true of itching

piles, Which because of the loss of
blood, are more rapid in their disastrous effects.
Dr. Chase's Ointment brings almost
instant relief from the itching, burning , stinging sensations of piles, and
is a positive und thorough  cure  for
every form of this wretched, torturing, and oftentimes, stubborn disease.
Mr. John Johnson, Cowley, Alberta.
writes:���"Three years ago I was cured
of blind, itching piles of 27 years
standing by using Dr. Chase's Ointment. I used to think that death
would be the only relief I would ever
get from the terrible misery of piles.
Often I was laid up for three days
at a time and at other times worked
when I should have been in bed.
"Dr. Chase's Ointment is worth sixty dollars a box instead of sixty cents.
I am a different man since using it.
I am farming all the time and never
misB a day. Words fail to express
my gratitude for the cure this ointment made for me. I cannot tell
half as much about it as it deserves
Anyone doubting this can write direct
to me."

Among the silly aud absurd articles
appearing from time to time concern-
I ing hotel and tavern keeping, one tells
| us again and agaiu how the modern
hotel is shown to disadvantage ivbeu
compared with the inns of colonial
days. In these articles the writer dilates and expatiates on the hospitality
of the old time tavern, and the cold,
indifferent and almost cruel treatment
received from the hands of the modern
hotel man. Of course every oue knows
if he w'll drop sentiment for a moment
and give the subject a little sober re-
fleelioti that the modern traveler, tourist or hotel guest would absolutely refuse tlie accommodations afforded by
the inn of a hundred years ago. The
only advantage of a hotel of those
times lay in the'fact that the lack of
material comforts drew from the trav
eler a warmer fellow feeling and greater sociability���a condition In which oue
man was more his brother's keeper
than prevails today. Again, the travel
by coach and Or* small number thrown
together, en route or at the hotel, made
closer acquaintanceship not only possible, but far more desirable than in our
day of big hotels and big crowds.
The modern hotel is a product of tbe
times. The wants, desires, whims, fads
and, on top of all these, the Imperative
demands of those who travel have
made the hotel of today what it is from
the standpoint of food, accommodations, method of service and management and from every point of view.
The hotel keeper of today responds to
the bidding of the guests. One might
almost say of lhe man nnd woman who
travel: ''Here" Is your bote,. You have
planned it, furnished It. You have outlined its methods of management, and
It is what you believe should be comprehended in the modern hotel."
The colonial tavern, which would not
be tolerated for a moment in our days,
was adapted lo its times. To speak of
it ns being superior to lhe modern hostelry is to claim that lhe old stage-
coueli, which left you more weary und
worn nt the end of a hundred miles
tliini the palace coach does today ut
the end of a thousand miles, wits a superior vehicle of travel to those used
on the modern railroad.

celebrated here and mad.; the occasion

that the Mexican does nothing but
With his religious and national feast
���"/ys, the Mexican does have many
holidays of more or less general importance, and wheu he is not celebrating these he may be celebratiug the
day of his patron saint or of that of
some member of his family, so that it
seems to require little Inducement for
him to celebrate. If a member of the
family goes out of town for a few
days or weeks, his return Is celebrated In some mild way and his welcome
home made pleasant.
But not all of the celebrations which
take place In the capital are Mexican,
as the foreign colonies contribute their
share of fea^t days. The Americans
celebrate their day of independence on
the glorious Fourth of July, and ten
days later the French celebrate the
fall of the Bastille, a::J so It goes, the
British celebrating the birthday of
their king, the Italians the entry Into
Rome of the traips of united Italy, the
Germans the birthday of the kaiser,
the Swiss the day of the formation of
the confederation. The Spanish celebrate the birthday of their kiug, and
In September their feast of Corvodon-
ga is important enough to lust three
days. No doubt there are other celebrations not so public or prominent,
such as the Chinese New Year and
others, but the above goes to show
that not all the feasting In the capital
is done by natives. An interesting
point, however, Is that foreigners who
come to Mexico are soon the keenest
for the coming of the various holidays,
and Mexican, religious or their own,
are jealously demanded as leisure days
from all houses of business or commerce.

the superstition that attaches to the

Its owner to hidden treasures, If It was
manipulated with the absolute faith
that was required in all those occult

a branch of hazel was universally

may be a few inches of space on the
cliffs where some' German has not
made a terrace big enough for a bunch
of grapes, but if any such spot has
been overlooked you failed to discover
it with your binoculars.
There are advantages in owning a

financial returns, tho chief advantage
lies in the glamour of romance that
hangs over the bluffs. Frowning castles look down ou you from the most

scene and get to the longer passages.
"When night came, and my aunt
made her appearauco, she did very
well In the first scene. In the second
scene occurred the passages she had
skipped in the morning. She rushed to
the corner in which she left her book,
but it was not there. Finally, the
stage manager, receiving no response
to his repeated calls, sought her out
and pushed her on the stage. There
she wns, before a large audience, without tbe slightest idea of what she was
supposed to do or say. The scene was
a courtroom. At a high desk sat the
presiding judge, letter perfect in his
part, because he had It ready to read
from the papers in front of him. A
trial was taking place, nnd Miss
Thorne, to her horror, discovered that
she was to be the principal witness,
on whose answers hung the entire plot
of the play. The judge adjusted his
spectacles,' looked at his part, und said
in solemn tones, 'The witness will now

M. Pierre Snmois, who has Invented
j a new life savlug apparatus, went to
the Louvre swimming baths n day or
two ago to test it. The apparatus consists of two small circular metal buoys,
through which the arms are passed.
A bolt connects the buoys, which are
constructed In such a way as to be
practically unslukuble. M. Samols' Invention was put to many severe tests
by expert swimmers, none of whom

"What do you understand by 'the
Spanish main?'" Such was the problem propounded at the club lunch table, and many and varied were the answers. In the "Wreck of the Hesperus" it was remembered that there
spake up "an old sailor who had sailed
the Spanish main," and it was recalled
that In the "Ingolsby Legends" one
says, "My-father dear he is uot here;
he seeks the Spanish main." There
was, however, n certain vagueness
about the speakers' views as to what
particular thing was meant by the
word, some thinking one thing nnd
some thinking another, nnd only one
speaking with the authority of "an old
sailor who had sailed the Spanish
main." Such a discussion tends to
show how satisfied most of us are to
half know a thing or to think that we
know without troubling about verification.���London Chronicle.
The  Shopping;  Sex.
The Englishwoman never knows
when she enters a shop what she
wants. She is swayed by impulse,
grabs wildly at everything she likes
or thinks she likes and probably comes
back and grumbles the next day. She
is also completely lost If the shopwalkers do not dog her every footstep
to Implore her to "look at this charming toque" or condescend to "glance
at this special line lu cheap skirts."
But the Americnn woman resents nny
suggestion thnt she does not know
what she wonts, likes to be left severely alone and If Interfered with
may abruptly leave the shop. But,
while she Is less Irritating than tbe
Kuglishwoman, she Is far more exacting.���London Express.
The  Old Great  En-tern.
Tlie lust days of the Grent Eastern
were certainly snd, considering the purpose for which she was1 deslgued and
the great work she did lu cable laying.
For some time before she was broken
up on the mud of the river Mersey,
near Liverpool, she was on view as a
show ship. Oue firm of Liverpool
clothiers hired her for a season, and in
addition to using her for Its advertising
purposes made use of her for catchpenny show's. In the large cable tank a
circus was lilted up aud performances
given nt so much a head, while other
exhibitions of the Coney Island type
were spread all over her deck-.
The Eii-lcm Eye.
The eyes of the yellow people are not
oblique, notwithstanding that they appear to be. The line adjoining tlie
commissures of the eyelids divides the
eye into two equal parts, nnd Is exactly at right angles with the axis of
the nose. It Is not always so; the exception Is- much less frequent than In
the whites, for, as n general rule, It Is
In the latter that the eyes tire not at
right angles with the axis of the nose.
