Goodeve of Rossland Chosen
To Oppose Smith Curtis.
The Convention of Conservative delegates, which was held in Nelson on
Tuesday,.was the most representative
party convention ever held in tlie Koot;
enay. Of a total membership of 108,
there were 86 actually present and 18
more represented by proxy. It was
characterized by a most unusual degree
tea" ** of harmony, enthusiasm and confidence.
There \}jero six names placed in nomination for Conservative candidate in
the next election: R. F. Green, W. R.
Ross, M. L. A., R. S. Lennie, W. A.
Macdonald, A. S. Goodeve, J. H. Schofield, M. L. A. All the nameB were received with hearty applanse. Messrs.
Green, Lennie, Macdonald, and Schofield declined the nomination, and the
b .Hot resulted in the choice of Mr.
G lodeve, which was made unanimous.
In Mr. Goodeve the Koote lays have
chosen a man who is   well  hnown as a
most brilliant orator and one whose devotion to the principles of conservatism
g^  is  almost  a  by-word.    Mr.  Goodeve
claims Guelph, Out., as  his   birthplace
"**       and first saw the light of  day  in   the
year 1860.   His public  carei-r  may be
Baid to have opened in 1898, when in the
second year of R Ireland's incorporation,
he was elected aldeiniiin and served on
the board for the next three years, once
in the responsible position of chairman of
the board of works and twice as mayor,
being re-elected otter Ecrving one turn
during the most tiying  time  of   Ross-
hind's short career.    He   then   reiircd
from municipal  life  and   devoted the
next two years to  lhe  development of
his private business at the end of whicli
time, at the urgent request of his parly
lis a>ain entered politics and was select-
by the Picniei* of the province, Hor. R.
MeBride, aa his provincial secretary.
The Nelson News in Breaking of hiin,
says: " No better man in tlie whole of
Hoot-may could have been selected to
look after Smith Curtis in a dominion
election campaign than Arthur Samuel
Goodeve, real estate agent of Rossland.
"No man in Kootenay knows Mr.
Smith Curtis and hia lit'le ways half as
well and as thoroughly as dors Mr.
Goodeve, and beyond question, with the
loyal support of the conservative party
in this ennstitu.-ncy, as thinly promised
yesterday, Mr. Goodeve will satisfactorily account for his former townsman on
election day."

Good News for Sandon,
Another good omen  ol   the  reviving
time in mining is the imminent  operation of tlie Last Chance mine  at  Sandon.   As is well known  the litigation
with regaid to this  properly has been I
stopping its operation  for  some   time I
past.    Last Saturday a  meeting  was
held in Nelson at the offices of Me.-srs.
Lennie  &   Wragge and the opening ol
the mine and its operation was determined upon.   The operating company
ia to be known as the Silver Cord.   At
Saturday's  meeting   it   took   over the

operations was formulated and will be
immediately acted upon.���Nelsm News.
The " Vancouver World" publishes a

to the effect that Premier MeBride will

to Silverton asking for information regarding fruit lands. AH those who
have seen and carefully examined the
land are invariably pleased with it. As

Fred Fern, a Dutchman, who until
recently was employed nt4he Sunset
mine, Snndon, was on Monday arraigned
before magistrates Smith and Mclnnes
on a charge on having obtained goods
under f.,lse pretences, to the value of
about $43, from J. F. Delaney.
The case for the prosecution was to
| the effect that on Monday the 13th inBt.
Fern,  representing  himself   as   being
then employed at Ihe Sunset mine, obtained the   goods,  agreeing to pay for
them on the 15lh,  after  receiving   his
wages, also stating  afterwards   that he
had an interest ou the Mountain   Chief
property, which lie   Jiad  sold   out   for
$4000, tne money for   which   would be
forthcoming in a few days.   Tins latter
statement aroused   suspicions  and enquiries being made, it  was   found that
both statements were absolutely untrue.
T. Becker, of the Sunset mine, on being
communicated with,  replied that Fern
had left his employ on tho 7lh and haJ
been paid up that date.
In the meantime Fern had shipped
the goods to Ymir ami' waybilled them
to "Arthur Tiacy.0 leaving shortly
afterwards for that place himself. On
arrival there, J. A. Fraser, provincial
constable, who had been communicated
with, arrested him, and a warrant having been issued he was brought back to
New Denver on Saturday.
Prisoner in his defence pleaded being
under the influence of intoxicating
liquor at tlio t^mo of making the purchases, nnd in a lambling statement,
gave as Iiii tea?on for leaving Snndon
uuder an alias that as he owed money
to several people and coul i not then
pay them, it would be easier to get
away in that manner. As he had previously met a man named Arthur
Tracy, who advised him to UFe his
name and had offered to find hiin a job,
it was bis intention to return in a
month's time and pay the money he
Robert Cunning, proprietor of the
Sandon Hotel, Sandon, testified to prisoner's honesty in all his transactions
with him, and characterized him as a
man who could be relied upon to pay
his debts in full.
After a lengthy discussion between
the two magistrates, Mr. Mclnnes announced to tlie prisoner that, taking
into consideration the seriousness of the
charge and that others were pending,
lie would be sent for trial to a higher
court, held at Neleou.
He left, in the custody of J. T. Black,
for the latter place on Tuesday.

At the.request of many, I am handing
yon for publication the  detailed marks
of tlie successful   pupils   at  the recent
Entrance Examination.    With tlie parents kind   indulgence I would  like to
point out one fact  noticeable   ln them,
viz : the comparatively low  mailcs obtained ill the subjects to the  getting up
of whicli home preparation is required.
Especially do I refer  to   History,   the
results in whicli are personally   rather
discouraging.   Might I solicit the aid of
tho   parents  next  term in seeing that
the home work of  the  pupils   is  done
more regularly,  and  that  outside distractions are not permitted to interfere
with school work to the extent they did
lust winter?   I ask  this  both  for   the
sake of the children and for the sake of
our town; for I must say I am ambitious
that we turn out pupils   who  will   not
merely pass the Entrance, but will pass
it in a manner whicli will centre attention on us,

Spokane Interstate Fair.
A granite rock, Iho hardest that can
'ie secured in the North-west, will be
used this year for tlie rock drilling contest at the Interstate Fair. The drilling
contest will be put ou al the Fair, which
will be held at Spokane this fall, October 5 to 10 Inclusive. Tlie big boulder
will stand 0 feet in height and wiil be
two feet thicker than the one used in
tlie rock-drilling contest last year, which
was drilled through by tho prize winners
of last season.
The Spokane Interstate Fair will give
a prize of $1250 for three rock-drilling
contests this year. This purse will bo
divided as fjllows: $1000 for a double-
handed contest, of whicli amount $750
is for first prize and $250 for second
prize; $200 for a single-hand contest, of
which $150 i* f n* first prize an<l $50 for
second; $50 fora b..y.' drilling contest,*
for boys 15 or under, of which $40 fs
for first prize and $10 for second.
Competition will be open to all and
an entrancs fee of $15 will be charged
for each man, $10 being refunded to
those who diiil. Any one entering tho
contest and not drilling will forfeit tho
entire entrance fee. There will bo no
entrance fee charge in the boys' contest.
Tho time allowed in two-baud contests will he fifteen minutes and (he
time allowed in single-hand contests ten
minutes. The boys' contests will bo
five minutes' duration. All tools are to
be furnished by contestants and any
weight hammer will be allowed.
Two assistants will be allowed to each
learn in the two-hand contests and one
assistant in the single-hand contest.
The rock-drilling contest was one of
the features at the Interstate Fair last
year, and the big tent iu which the
contest was conducted was full to
overflowing at each test. To accommodate those who might bo unable to
get near the drillers on account of
crowds, the drill will he put on this
year in front of the big grand stand
oacli day of the Fair. One or more
teams will drill between the races, and
the team having the highest score in
the stipulated time at the end of tho
week will be awarded the prize.
From present indications some of tho
most noted rock drillers of the west will
he in attendance, and the event promises to he one of the most bitterly contested drills in the history of the   Fair.

"We have heen talking for twenty six
years oh this subject of a probable timber famine, and some time ago I was
asked where was that predicted timber
famine. I said,'You havo been asleep;
it is on us already, for when prices rise
continuously at rapid rate there must
be a famine.' Not au absolute absence
of material, but an increase of prices
makes a famine; and tlie prices have
risen very steadily, as yon see.
"This more or lczs horizontal line,"
referring to a diagiam exhibited at tho
meeting, "indicates the prices before
1899, while this rapidly ascending curve
represents the pi ices since that year,
and from the character of the curve,
you can see that this rise in prices will
go on, as may also bo predicted from
other data, I assnro you. Every year
you pay just eight per cent more for
your wood than you did the year before.
Have you no interest in that ? I mean
has the public in general no interest In
the fon stry question? It seems to ino
they have. Everybody must have an
Interest in it because it touches his
I ocket.
"There i3 another point I wish to
make, namely, that while before-1899
prices went up an 1 down from year to
year, hut on lho whole remained level,
from the year 1889 prices of all gaades
of wood began an upward course. What
in the reason? . . . The explanation
is simple. In 189!) the data collected by
the United States Census regarding supply and demand of forest products became known, which showed that in predicting this timber famine we were not
bo very far out ot the way.
"Not supply and demand, but knowledge of supply and demand makes
prices, and the trouble has been in the
pa.t, the absence of knowledge as tu
our timber resources, and this lack of
knowledge still works against our work
of reform. During the la��t few yenrs
the knowledge has increased and tlio
result has been th.it prices luvyo risen
aa it became known that the Biipply
was less than bad heen supposed."���

of Forestry, University of Toronto, at

Copyright, 1803, by Harper & Brothers
FOR nearly a week the king was
constant to his new humor.
The routine of bis life remained
unchanged, save that it was the
room of the frail beauty rather thau of
Mine, do Maintenon which attracted
him iu the afternoon. And in sympathy with this sudden relapse Into his
old life his coats lost something of
their somber hue. His walls wns brisker, and he gave a youthful nourish to
Ills cane as a defiance to those who
had seen in his reformation the first
symptoms of age.
And as the king brightened, so all
(he great court brightened too. The
snlous began to resume their former
upleudor, and guy coats aud glittering
embroidery whicli had lain In drawers
for years were seen once more lu the
halls of the palace. The Montespan
anteroom was crowded every morning
with men nnd women who had some
suit to bo urged, while her rival's
chambers were ns deserted as they
had been before the king first turned
'a gracious look upon her. Faces wliich
had been long banished from the court
began to reappear in tbe corridors and
gardens unchecked and unrehuked,
while the black cassock of the Jesuit
*" nnd the purple soutauo of the bishop
were less frequent colors in the royal
But the church party was never seriously alarmed at this relapse. The
grave eyes of priest or of prelate followed Louis in his escnpnde as wary
huntsmen might watch a young deer
which gnmbols about In the meadow
luuler the impression tbat it Is master-
less when every gap and path Is netted and it Is lu truth as much In their
liands as though it were lying bound
before them. They waited, therefore,
and they silently planned how the
prodigal might best be dealt witb ou
Ills return.
To this end It was that his confessor,
OPere la Chaise, and Bossuet, the great
���bishop of Menux, waited one morning
tipon Mme. de Mnintenon iu her chamber. With a globe beside her, she was
endeavoring to teach geography to the
lame Due du Muiue and the mischievous little Comte de Toulouse, who had
enougli of their father's disposition to
make them averse to learning and of
their mother's to cause them to hate
a-.iy discipline or restraint.
Mme. de Maluteuou dismissed her
two pupils and received the ecclesiastics with the mixture of affection
und respect whicli was due to those
who were not only personal friends,
but great lights of the Gitllicaii church.
The last few days had cast a pallor
over her face whicli spiritualized and
refined the features, but she wore unimpaired her expression of sweet serenity.
"I see, my dear daughter, that you
Jiuve sorrowed," said Bossuet, glancing
at her with a kiudly aud yet searching
"I have Indeed, your grace. All last"
night I spent in prayer that this trial
may pass away from us."
"And yet you have no need for fear,
madame���none, I assure you. Others
may think that your Influence has
teased, but we, who kuow the king's
heart, think otherwise. A few days
may pass, a few weeks at the most,
nnd once more it will be upou your
rising fortunes that every eye ln
France will turn."
The lndy's brow clouded, and she
glanced at the prelate ns though bis
speech were not altogether to her taste.
"I trust that pride does not lead me
astray," she suid. "Hut If I can read
my own soul aright there is no thought
of myself In the grief which now tears
my heart. It Is for the king I grieve,
for lhe noble heart, the kindly soul,
���which might rise so high and which ls
dragged so low."
"For all that, my daughter, you nre
ambitious. Would you not love to
turn the king toward good?"
"I would give my life for It."
"And there ls your ambition. Ah.
can I not rend your noble soul 7 Would
you not love to see the church reign
pure and serene over all this realm, to
see the poor housed, the needy helped,
tlie wicked turned from their ways and
tbe king ever the leader in all that is
noble and good?"
Her cheeks had flushed, and her eyes
shone as she looked at the gray fnce
of the Jesuit and saw the picture
which his words had conjured up before her.
"My daughter," said Bossuet solemnly, "it is time lor plain speaking. It
is ln the interests of the church that
we do it. None hear and none shall
,cver hem* what passes between us now.
Regard us, if you will, as two confess-
|Ors, with whom your secret Is inviolable. I call it a secret, and yet it Is
.none to us, for It Is our mission to read
the human heart. You love the king."
"Your grace���father!" She turned Id
confusion from one to the other.
"There is no shame in loving, my
daughter. The shame lies only in
(yielding to love. I suy again that you
love the king."
"At least I have never told him so,"
she faltered.
"And will you never?"
"Mny heaven wither my tongue first!'*
"But consider,  my daughter.    Such
love in a soul like yours is heaven's
gift and sent for some wise purpose.
We speak for the interests of the holy
church,   and   those   interests  demand
that you should marry the king."
"Marry the king!" The little room
swam round her,   "Marry the king!"
"There lies the best hope for the future. We see in you a second Jeanne
d'Arc who will save both France nnd
France's king."
Madame snt silent for a few moments. Her face hnd regained its composure, and her eyes were bent vacantly upon her tapestry frame ns she
turned over in tier mind all that was
Involved in the suggestion.
"But surely���surely this could never
be," she snld nt last. "Whnt king of
Franco has mnriicd a subject? See
how every princess of Europe stretches
out her bund to him. The queen of
France must be of oueenly blood, even
as tne last was.
"All this may be overcome."
"Aud then there are the reasons of
state. If the king marry. It should be
to form a powerful alliance, to cement a friendship with a neighbor nation or to gain some province which
may be the bride's dowry. What is
my dowry? A widow's pension and a
"Your dowry, my daughter, would
be those gifts of body and of mlud
with which heaven has endowed you.
The king has money enough and the
king has provinces enough. As to the
state, how can the state be better
served than by the assurance that the
king will be saved in future from such
sights as are to be seen iu this palace
"Oh, if It could be so! But think,
father; think of those about him���the
dauphin, monsieur his brother, his
ministers. You know how little this
would please them and bow easy it is
for them to swny his mind."
The faces of the two ecclesiastics
who had dismissed her other objections
with a smile and a wave clouded over
at this.
"My daughter," said the Jesuit gravely, "that is a matter wliich you may
leave to the church. It may be that
we, too, have some power over the
king's mind and that we may lead him
In the right path, even though those
of his own blood would fain have it
otherwise. The future only can show
with whom the power lies. But you?
Love and duty both draw you oue way
uow, and the church mny count upon
you nud you upon the church. It will
serve you if you in turn will but serve
"What higher wish could I have?"
"You will bo our daughter,our queen,
our champion, nnd you will heal the
wounds of the suffering church. The
Huguenots must go. They must be
driven forth. The gouts must be divided from tbe sheep. The king is already ln two minds. Louvois Is our
friend now. If you are with us, then
nil will be well."
"But, father, think how many there
nre!   And think, too, of their sufferings
should they be driven forth!"
"Their cure lies lu tlieir own hands."
"That is  true.    And yet  my heart
softens for them."
Pere la Chaise and the bishop shook
their heads.
"Y'ou would befriend God's enemies,
"No, no; not if they nre indeed so."
"Can  you doubt it?    Is It possible
that your heart still turns toward the
heresy of your youth?"
"No, father; but It Is not In nature to
forget that my father and my grandfather"���
"Nny; they 'have answered for their
own sins. Is it possible thnt the church
has been mistaken in you? Do j'ou,

asks of you? You would accept her
aid, and yet you would give none In
Mme. de Maintenon rose with the air
of oue who hns made her resolution.
"You are wiser than I," said she, "aud
to you have been committed the Interests of the church. I will do wbat you
"You promise it?"
"I do."
Her two visitors throw up their bauds
together. "It ls a blessed day," they
cried, "and generations yet unborn will
learn to deem it so."
She sat half stunned by the prospect
which wns opening out iu front of her.
Ambitious she hnd, as the Jesuit had
surmised, always been���ambitious for
the power which would enable her to
leave the world better than she found
It. But close at the heels of her joy
there came a sudden revulsion to
doubt nud despondency. Was not all
this fine prospect a mere day dream?
And how could these men be so sure
that they held the king in the hollow
of their hand? The Jesuit read tbe
fears which dulled the sparkle of her
eyes, and answered her thoughts.
"The   church   redeems   its   pledges
swiftly,"   said   he.     "And   you,   my
daughter, you must be as prompt when
your own turu comes."
"I have promised, father."
"Then It is for us to perform.   You
will remain In your room all evening."
"Yes, father."
"The king already hesitates. I spoke
With him this morning, and his mind
was full of blackness aud despair. His
better self turns in disgust from his
sins. I have to see and speak with
him once more, and I go from your
room to his. And when I have spoken
he will come from his room to yours,
or I have studied his heart for twenty
years in vain." They bowed low to
her, both together, and left her to her
An hour passed, and then a second
one, as she sat In her fauteuil, her
tapestry before her, but her bands listless upon her lap, waiting for her fate.
Her life's future was now being settled for her, and she was powerless to
"Marry the king I"
turn In one wny or the other. Daylight turned to tlie pearly light of evening, nud thnt again to dusk, but she
still sut waiting In the shndow. At
lust, however, there cnme a quick,
sharp trend, crisp nnd authoritative,
whicli brought her to her feet with
flushed cheeks and her heart beatlug |
Wllaiy. ine aoor openea, ana sne saw
outllued against the gray light of the
outer passage the erect and graceful
figure of tbe king.
"Sire, oue Instant and mademoiselle
will light the lamp."
"Do not call her." fte entered and
closed the door behind him. "Franeolse,
the dusk is welcome to me because It
screens me from the reproaches whicli
must lie In your glance even If your
tongue be too kindly to utter them."
"Reproaches, sire! God forbid that I
should utter them!"
"When I last left you, Franeolse, It
was with a good resolution in my mind
I tried to carry It out, and I failed���I
failed. I remember that you warned
me. Fool that I was uot to follow
your advice!"
"We are all weak and mortal, sire
Who bas not fallen? Nny, sire, It goes
to my lienrt tn see you thus."
He was standing by the fireplace, his
face burled In his bunds, and she could
tell by the catch of his breath that he
wus weeping.
"I cannot do without you, Franeolse!" he cried. "I nm the loneliest
man In all this world, like one who
lives on a great mountain peak, with
none to bear hlm company. Who hnve
I for a friend? Whom can I rely upon?
Some are for the church; some are for
their families; most are for themselves.
But who of them all Is single minded?
You nre My better self, Franeolse. You
are my guardian angel. Whut the
good father says Is true, and the nearer
I am to you the further om I from nil
that Is evil. Tell me, Franeolse, do
you love me?"
"I have loved you for yearB, sire."
Her voice was low, but clear���the voice
of a woman to whom coquetry was abhorrent.
"I had hoped It, Franeolse, and yet
it thrills me to hear you say It. Will
you be my wife, Franeolse?"
And so the moment had in very
truth come. Sbe paused for an instant, only au instant, before taking
this last great step, but even that was
too long for the patience of the king.
"Will you not, Franeolse?" he cried.
"May God make me worthy of such
an honor, sire!" said she. "Aud here I
swear that If heaven double my life
every hour shall be spent in the one
endeavor to make you a happier man!"
She had knelt down, and the king,
still holding her hand, knelt dowu beside her.
"And I swear, too," he cried, "that If
my days also are doubled you will uow
and forever be the oue and ouly woman for me."
And so their double oath was taken,
an oath which was to be tested In the
future, for each did live almost double
their years, and yet neither broke tbe
promise made hnnd lu hnnd on that
evening In the shadow girt chamber.

Sir A. Colvin's Story of Deadly Peril
In  Egypt.
Sir Auckland Colvin, the distinguished financier and Indian civil
servant, died recently at Suffolk
I House, Surbiton, the residence of one
; of his daughters. Sir Auckland, who
was born in 1838, filled from 1858 to
1879 a variety of "posts in the Indian
Civil Service. In 1880 he became
Comptroller-General of Egyptian Finance, and two years later he was appointed financial adviser to the Khedive. When Arabi Pasha was about
to muster the mutinous Egyptian soldiery in the Abdin Square at Cairo,
Sir Auckland advised the Khedive to
put himself at tlie head of the two
regiments that remained loyal, and
boldly to demand tlie submission of
the rebel leader How Tewfik's nerve
failed hiin nt the critical moment Sir
Auckland Colvin himself has told in
the  following  words:
"The square was entirely occupied
by soldiers, drawn up round it, and
keeping all spectators at a distance.
The Viceroy advanced firmly into the
square towards a little group of officers and men (some mounted) in the
centre. I said to him, 'When Arabi
Bey presents himself tell him to give
up his sword, anil then go the round
of the square and address each regiment separately, and give them the
order to disperse.' Arabi Bey approached on horseback; the Viceroj
called out to him tc dismount. H��
did so, and cnme forward on foot,
with several others and a guard with
fixed bnynnets, and saluted. I said
to the Viceroy. 'Now is your moment.'
He replied 'We are between four
fires.' I snid 'Have courage.' He
took counsel of a native officer on his
left, and repeated to me, 'What can I
do? We are between four fires. We
shall be killed.' He then told Arabi
Bey to sheath his sword.
1 The order was obeyed, and he then
asked Arabi Bey what all this meant.
Arabi Bey replied by enumerating
three points, adding that the army
had come there on the part of the
Egyptian people to enforce them, and
would not retire until they were conceded. Tlie Viceroy turned to me and
said 'Vou hear what he says.' I replied that it was not fitting for the
Viceroy to discuss questions of this
kind witli colonels, nnd suggested to
him to retire into the Palace of Abdin, leaving me to speak to the colonels. He did so. and I remained for
about an hour, till the arrival of Sir
Charles Cookson, explaining to them
the gravity of the situation for themselves, and urging them to retire the
troops while there was yet time." Negotiations with the mutineers followed, and in the end the troops were
drawn off in perfect quietness to their
respective barracks.
Boxer's    Friendly   Challenge   to   thc
Lord  Chief Justice.
Lord Alverstone, the Lord Chief Justice, was one of the guests at a recent dinner of tlie Sphinx Club at the
Hotel Cecil, London, Eng., when the
hero of the evening and principal
guest was Tommy Burns, the champion heavy-weight fighter of the world.
Mr. R. Balch presided, and amongst
those present were Lord Kiunoird, an
ex-intornational footballer; Mr. Guy
Nickalls, one of the Oxford coaches;
and Mr.  Vane Pcnnell.
Lord Kinnaird, in a neat little
speech, advocated clean amateurism
and  clean  professionalism.
Mr. Guy Nickalls said he wns of the
opinion that where commercialism and
money crept in sport crept out. Sport
should be a pastime entirely.
Lord Alverstone agreed thnt, for
healthy and good sport, the more publicity the better. He would like to
see betting eliminated from football,
as it did a great deal of harm amongst
clerks and others.
Too much publicity was given, he
thought, to people who made records.
There was nothing so deleterious to
sport as the unhealthy rushing after
record-breaking. He wanted not only
to encourage the man who mnde records, but to elevate the general standard of sport among competitors and
those   who   played
Tommy Burns wus called upon to
make a speech and simply said: "My
lords, Mr. Chairman, gentlemen. I
cannot hope to beat the Lord Chief
Justice as a speaker, but I wouldn't
mind taking him on with the gloves!
(Loud cheers, during which the Lord
Chief smiled a grim smile.) My opinion is that if you have no publicity,
you have no sport. I consider the
Press boys my best friends, and I
consider every knock they may give
me a 'boost-up'."
This little effort of oratory was
wildly cheered.
As Lord Alverstone left the room he
shook liands cordially with the champion.
King and Empress.
Referring some time ago to the visit
of the Dowager Empress of Russia to
England to see her sister, Queen Alexandra, writes an English correspondent, I mentioned gossip which was
going around Mayfair regarding tlie
supposed ill-feeling thnt existed between King Edward and his sister-in-
law, or rather the coldness wliich hnd
been very long-standing, and that this
yenr, as last, the Dowager Empress
was just waiting for tho King to go
off to Biarritz to come again to England. This gossip coining to the ears
of the King, he took very effective
measures to kill it. He postponed his
departure till after his sister-in-law
had arrived. He was with the Queen
waiting her arrival at Victoria station,
his jovial, genial face beaming with
pleasure. Gently, courteously, he assisted her t*o alight from tho royal
train, affectionately embraced her,
not on both cheeks, as most of the
correspondents reported, but full on
the lips. Then, after other greetings
had been exchanged, he led the Dowager Empress to a royal carriage and
drove alone with her to Buckingham
Palace, to the intense delight of the
crowds, Queen Alexandra and Princess Victoria, who had driven to the
station with the King, following in another carriage.

Sixty Thousand Dollars Found In
Cabin of Miser Brothers.
The death of James Ison in the
Dartford Workhouse Infirmary recently recalls a remarkable story of the
lives of two brothers who were known
as the Bexley Heath misers. About
two years ago William Ison, aged 79,

wretched condition. They had lived

On Good Friday, 1906, the elder brother died from mortification, and the
doctor who was called found the
rooms so insanitary that he suggested
burning all the furniture. Hardly a
window had a blind to it, and nothing had been done to the inside of
the house for over thirty years.
The brothers allowed no woman in
the house, bought only the barest necessaries for themselves and used a
milk can to boil their tea in. They
always left the house together, but
wh *n outside they took different sides

were sons of a baker who was admitted a freeman of tlie city of London

were survivors of six sons and one
daughter, all unmarried. Relatives

Tlie marching of 14,000 members of

against profanity was an impressive
reminder of a widespread evil in America. The use of profane language
is an ugly habit. Some men are
thoughtlessly profane; others are intentionally so. In either ease it is a
bnd habit and one which answers no
good purpose. It may be that such
organizations as tbe Holy Name S>
ciety can niter tlie common view and
break up a bad habit. Ugly words
soil the tongue; more than that, tliey
bend the mind downward, and force
thinking into vulgar grounds, when

culls buck the dead to life"). This was
distributed from door to door, to be
paid for wben convenient, and from
thut time bus lieen a popular remedy.
The Industry took root nnd flourished. Medicines were distributed ln the

Vain and Perilous Effort to Scale
Mount McKinley.
The long trail to the nortb brings out
the best In men and the worst, declares
Mr. Robert Dunn In "The Shameless
Diary of an Explorer." As a member
of a party which made a vain attempt
to reach the top of Mount McKinley
he tells something of the hardships of
one day's travel:
Furtively, imperceptibly, the steepness had stolen a march on us. As
one line of footholds gave out we had
to slide dexterously to another. The
steeper slope was swept cleur and hard.
Steps hud to be cut.
We have only three Ice axes. As I
never gave them u thought this morning, all of them were gobbled up when
we started, and I was left with only
one long willow teut pole. It was never
meant to balance you In half cut steps
tbut may or mny not hold your toe.
As the steps changed from e stairway to a stepladiler the other three
betrayed no excitement, no uneasiness.
Neither did I at first, but I felt both.
It was uot dizziness, not vertigo, but
simply that ns I looked dowu tbe sheer
2,000 feet from where we clung by
our toes Imagination rcsistlessly told
over how It would feel, bow long It
would lust, what the climax In sensation would be, were I to fall.
As hour succeeded hour I lived each
minute only to mnke the false step.
Courage Is only u matter of self control anyway.
Climbing the highest mountain on

places that I hnd put myself In such

steep slopes, but no one but Fred nnswered, and lie* snld: "Y' ain't goin' to

It Is the Most Marvelous Machine In
the World.
The human brain Is tbe most marvelous machine In the world. It occupies less space in proportion to Its
capabilities than nny machine It ever
Invented. It sends a special nerve to
every ultimate fiber of some COO muscles, to many thousand branching
twigs of arteries, to every plnhead
area of the numerous glands which
keep the machine properly oiled, heated or cooled, to some sixteen square
feet of skin, which Is the outpost
guard of Its castle, with such completeness that the point of a pin cannot
find an area unguarded. It possesses
special quarters for the reception and
translation of a constant stream of vibrations that nre the product of nil
things movable or still In the outer
world. On the retina of every open
eye Is a picture of the outer view, a
focused Imprint of every ray of light
and color, and In the visual chamber
of the mental palace stands a vlbra-
scope, a mnglc lnDtern that receives
the retinal picture ln Its billion speeding series of light waves and throws
them upou Its mental screen as a living moving picture of light and shade
and color. In the chamber of sound Is,
a vlbraphoue, over whose active wires
passes every wave of sound from the
dripping of the dew to the orchestral
fortissimo, from the raucous screech
of the locomotive to the sighing of the
wind through the meadow grass. In
the chambers set apart for scent and
taste and touch are the secret service
guards to report upon the air and food
which give sustenance to the palace
and upon the solid qualities of the tactile world. Aud, wonder of all wonders, this complex human brain can
think ln all languages or lu no language and even conceive Its own physical mortality���Edward A. Ayres ln

Disappear   Under  a   Treatment
with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
There can be health ami vigor only
when the blood is rich and red.
There are thousands of young men
just approaching manhood who need
the* rich, red blood that only Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills can make. They
have no energy, tire out at the least
exertion, and who feel by tlie time
tliey have done their day's work, us
though the day wns a week long. In
some cases there-is a further sign of
danger in the pimples and disfiguring
eruptions wliicn break out on tlie
face. Tiiese ure certain signs thnt
blood is out of order and thnt a complete breakdown may result. In this
emergency Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
is the medicine tiiese young men
should take. Tiiese pills actually
make rich, red blood. They elear the
skin of pimples and eruptions and
bring health, strength and energy.
Here is tlie experience of Adolphe
Rolland, of St. Jerome, Que., a
young man 19 years of age, 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 clerk. My
appetite failed me, I bnd occasional
violent headaches and 1 begun to suffer from indigestion. I was failing
so rapidly that 1 began to fear Hint
consumption wns fastening itself upon me. Our family doctor treated me
but I 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. 1 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 the pills
till I had taken ten boxes and I am
now enjoying tlie best health I ever
had. My cure surprised many of my
friends who began to regaid me ns
incurable, and I strongly advise other
young men who are weak to follow
mv example and give Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills a fair trial." Bad blood
is tlie cause of all common diseases
like anaemia, headaches, neuralgia,
rheumatism, sciatica, indigestion, all
nervous troubles, general weakness,
and the special ailments that only women folk know. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills nre the one cure, becnuse they
go right to the root of the trouble in
the blood. They change the' bad
blood into good blood, and thus bring
health, strength and energy. You
can get tiiese pills from any medicine
dealer, or by mail at 50c a box, or
six boxes for $2.50 from the Dr.

Its   Would   Be   Desecrators   and   the
Poet's Imprecation.
The fact that would be desecrators of
Shakespeare's tomb bave not dared to
risk the falling of tbe curse invoked in
the lines cut upon his tomb ls a striking testimony to the powerful effect
upon mankind of sucb an Imprecation.
J. 0. Halllwell-Pblllip'ps, writing in
the eighties, said:
"The nearest approach to an excavation ln the grave of Shakespeare was
made In the summer of tbe year 1796
ln digging a vault ln tbe Immediate locality, when du opening appeared
which was presumed to Indicate tbe
commencement of tbe site of the bard's
remains. The most scrupulous care,
however, was taken not to disturb the
neighboring earth In tbe slightest degree, the clerk having been placed
there till tbe brickwork of tbe adjoining vault was completed to prevent
any one making an examination. No
relics whatever were visible through
the small opening that thus presented
Itself, and as tbe poet was buried ln
the ground, not In a vault, tbe great
probability ls tbat dust alone remains.
It ls not many years since a phalanx
of trouble tombs, lanterns and spades
In band, assembled ln tbe chancel at
dead of night, Intent on disobeying the
solemn injunction that tbe bones of
Sbakespea/e were uot to be disturbed.
But the supplicatory lines prevailed.
There were some among tbe number
who at the last moment refused to Incur tbe warning condemnation, and so
tho design was happily abandoned."
' A correspondent of the London Athenaeum wrote In 1881: "I remember on
a visit to the grave of Shakespeare. In
1827 or 1828 reuinrklug tbat It was little creditable to the authorities that
the raised coverlug to the tomb sbould
bave been allowed to fall Into sucb decay, for I could see Into the grave
through the hole formed by the sinking
of tbe stones. The reply was that, 'on
account of tbe anathema Inscribed upon
the tomb,* no workmen could be persuaded to meddle wltb It."
An earlier Incident Is thus set forth
by a contributor to the Moutbly Magazine of Feb. 1, 1818:
"Notwithstanding the anathema pronounced by the bnrd on auy disturber
of his bones, the church wardens were
so negligent a few years ago as to
suffer tbe sexton In digging the adjoining grave of Dr. Davenport to
break a large cavity into the tomb of
Shakespeare.   Mr.   told the writer
that be wos excited by curiosity to
push bis head and shoulders through
the cavity, that be saw tbe remains of
the bard and tbat he could easily bave

The attempt at a later day to meddle wltb tbe tomb had no more effective ending.

Harry and Ethel were crossing a
field on their return from Sabbath-
school, when they encountered a bull.
At tlie animal's approach they fled in
terror. Faster and faster they ran,
yet nearer and nearer came the bull.

kneel down right here."
"No, we'll pray running. You
ought to do it; you're a girl."

Ethel.    "You do it."
The proximity of tlie bull demanded
immediate action, and Harry rose to
the occasion. Loudly and fervently
they prayed:
"0 Lord, for what we are nbout to
receive, make us truly thankful."���

"Nothing happened," resplied Margery, indignantly. "There isn't any

She just lived in tlie mud."
