McGillivray and Erickson Get
Pool of .{OOO-'-Wonderful
Drilling Performance.
Whether a team conld bo found in
the Kootenay to lower the record mado
by the invincible Faulds Brothers at
the Sandon Labor Day [Celebration of
1004 has long been a moot, point. This
hole, US 5-8, made in hard, fine-grained
granite, has since that tinio been tint
envy and at the same time the admiration of tho fancy, and immense sums
have frequently been offered against allcomers to ilo better in lite same rock.
It was three days after the record had ! lay a 100 to 1 it's beat; come down on

McGillivray essayed to beat it and called | Steady, now, Pretty change. Now

unsuccessful, however, for at the tenth ; quicker 1 That's the dope! Down,

cutting it out. When time was called tlieir pent-up excitement in a mighty
they had the worst of it by an inch. | chee
the bole, a match was ratified and $250
a side was posted, McGillivray taking
for liia partner for the mighty effort, A.
Erickson, a powerful young Swede who
had greatly distinguished himself by
easily defeating the field in the single-
handed contest last Monday.,
Tbe match came off on Tuesday before
a large crowd. Money pro and coll flew
round as plentiful as rain tbo pravions
day. Two to one was bet on the hole
for large amounts, and it is estimated
that ifl,200 changed hands.
Tho official timekeeper was Alex.
McMillan, and the judges were Chas.
Isenor, 1*'. McDonnell and A. Shilland.
The physique of the two men when
stripped was perfectly magnificent, At
tbe start Erickson took tlie first half
minute, McGillivray taking the second
and so alternating throughout tlie fifteen minutes. Steel was changed every
minute nuiii the fourteenth. Altogether
there were 010 blows Btruck, the men
starting with 50 and finishing with 67.
At the fourteenth minute, George Long
who waa attending the men, shouted
excitedly:   '' Hurrah I  she's beat;  I'll

dissolved partnership in these coinpeti- timekeeper, and every sinew in those
tions. Savage drifted to (ioldlield gladiator's frames stood ont like wltip-

be interesting in passing to learn that
Savage is now a prominent mining man
With offices in Reno. After the Wonder
was B'aked and proven up he took into
partnership several working miners,
and a company was formed. Shortly
afterwards these men accepted an offer
of $300,000.00 for their boilings, but
they retained 400,000 shaves of stock,
and this stock has never heen on the
market. Now tlie Brock syndicate is
trying to get those shares from Savage
and bis partners at .4 per; share, or
Angus McGillivray stayed with tlie
Slocan, and is one of the lucky lesseeB of
the Queen Bee*. Angus bore a righteous
grudge against the hole whicli cost him
BO ranch, and lie has never cea��ed to
asiert bis confidence to beat the record
if he could secure aa good a hammer
man as himself for a partner.
As the outcome of a challenge in thc
Review insetted by a syndicate backing
Erickson strike," and a magnificent
change was m;.do. Down came terrific
blows two to a second, and the crowd
went frantic with delight.
" One���two���three���STOP," cried the
timekeeper, and the crowd rushed to
congratulate the Apollo's and to hear
tlie official  measurement    proclaimed.
Down went the^ measuring rod an
when withdrawn an official announced
in stentorian tone:
" Thirty-three and fifteen-sixteenths
of an inch,"       ���
It was a wonderful perform a nee, and
one whi.h will be related with pride
in the years to come.

Dr. Petersky: Will, you would be
surprised. This celebration has brought

did you say ? Not quite that, but it
might have been. Do yon know, as a
physician, I actually had to forbid some
of my fair clients to dance any more.

The rev. gentlemen, we are pleased lo
say, is looking and feeling decidedly
better than when he left. High mass
was Bitng on Sunday before the largest congregation within two years. The
father is now touring his Ecatteted district.
Thc rea-on why tlie^Consolidnted Co.
have not begun the coiis'ructioii of lite

tho is because Geo. Lovatt bas
a notion the ooinpany has no right to
be on the earth, that is, his earth,
nnd the consequence is the progress of
the camp has once more been retarded
through legal pieces*!. We wonder
when people will take a tumble anil
realize that by knocking capital at this
juncture they are invariably knocking
their own chancts. If we bad an old
hillside lot which 1 uul no market yalue
we would certainly not object to the
birds or aerial buckets passing over it,
and if we d el we should expect to be

Th tt our cc'eliratiou was a success
goes without Bayingj Taking it all
round it was a gigantic success financially and otherwise . It certainly
looked like Sandon in the palmy
days and we entertain hopes, not without reason, that our Btrcels will be as
crowded eyery day of the week in the
near future.
Judging by the weather at 10 a.m.
one would have thought that the nice
weather ordered hy our weather prophet
was n ttobe delivered in *.o?d order.
The parcel came a little bit frayed
with tho string torn out on taking off
tho wrapper the goods were found to be
in good order. This ntaele the poet on
our editorial stafT roll his eyes and look
"ethereal" and exclaim: Nay! Nay!
The Gods never did desert Sandon yet."
Tlie Kaslo brass band deserve* great
credit for their smart appearance which
even the o**tttwhb imbibes all the liquid
joy for Iho editorial stuff noticed in spite
of sailing two points to tho wind nearly
all day. The music was very much ap-
prec'ated aud helped to complete the
air of holiday which floated through tlie.
town in considerable quantities.
The tlrilfing contests were very much
appreciated seeing that they are typical of tlie occupation which is making
and will make this district famous
throughout the civilized world.
Ihe hub-and-hub race waa both a
surprise anel not to say anything of a
pleasure particularly to Sandon, who
expected to lose, but now it is rumored
that tlie Sandon team will be sent for a
trip around the world to compete with
the crack teams.
And now last but not least tiny-dance.
It was the nearest thing to divine that
was possible to obtain on this earth,
at least so one of Ihe young ladies kept
exclaiming, we suppose on account of
the fact that it was patronised by lbs
nobility, the. professions, the financial
interest, and the men who ate to make
tlie country famous, the miners.

Meeting of City Council.
There was a full meeting of tlie City
Council on Thursday evening, when
the principal business done was to elect
a successor to C. E.. Lyons, as City
Clerk, Cliief of Police, Assessor and
Collector. Tlie position was not advertised vacant, and that perhaps accounted for the paucity of applicants. But
one application was lead and deferred
for discussion under the caption of
new business, and by that time another
was handed in. The Councillors ultimately appointed W. F. Lawson, the
first applicant.
The appointment is very popular, as
tlie new chief is a greatly respected old-
timer who is undoubtedly the most capable man that could be found for so important a position.

was third and Mrs. J. L. White fourth.
An event which was keenly looked
forward too was the Hub and Hub
Race for which three teams entered,
viz., New Denver, Kaslo and Snndon.
In tho draw Sandon got a bye, ami
Kas'o and Denver at once got into
harness. The distance was 100 yards.

bunion  until the cl mds slipped apart
and Old Sol pushed bis face through.
Then  tho fun  began.   The well organised program waa hurried along between
the showers, and at G.S0 it was through.
Financially the celebration was a huge
success.   Wo  believe this  ia  the  first
occasion  in  which a surplus can be recorded.    Shortly after 10  am. tlie first
contingent arrived from Kaslo, and what
a surprise for everybody.     There were
two hundred visitors at least.    Bravo,
Kaslo! Sandon  will   not forget.     And
tbcij,came tho crowd from Thiee Folks,
chiefly  in   wagonettes  gaily  bedecked,
and  a few  minutes   later the  C.T.R.
train pounded  in carrying   a in.onster
crowd.   It  was   an  eye-opener to  the
committee and  every   resident.    New
Denver, Silverton, Rosebery,nnd Slocan
City must  have shut ilown for the occasion.     Then  the Kat-lo band   burst
forth with   tbe   new air  composed by

good.    But to the program.   The events

In his arms, for something told him
that she would have surrendered.
"This Is the end, I fear," he said,
with grim persistence. She caught her
breath in half a sob. Then she nrose
resolutely, although her knees trembled shamelessly.
"Well, then, goodby," she said very
steadily.    "You are free to go where

He prepared nnd swore to the charges
preferred against Baldos. They were
dispatched to the princess for her
perusal In the morning. Then he set
about preparing the vilest accusations
against Beverly Calhoun. In bis own
handwriting and over his own signature he charged her with complicity ln
the betrayal of Graustark, influenced
by the desires of the lover who masqueraded as her protege. At some
length he dwelt upon the well laid plot
Df the spy and his accomplice. He told
ef their secret meetings, their outrages
against the dignity of the court and
their unmistakable animosity toward
Graustark. For each and every count
In his vicious indictment against the
girl he professed to have absolute
proof by means of more than one
reputable witness.
It was not tbe design of Marlanx to ,
present thla document to the princess
tnil her cabinet. He knew full well
that It would meet the fate It deserved.
It was Intended for the eyes of Beverly
Calhoun alone. By means of the vile
accusations, false though they were, he
hoped to terrorize her into submission.
He longed to possess this lithe, beautiful creature from over the sea. In all
his life he had not hungered for anything as he now craved Beverly Calhoun. He saw that his position ln the
army waa rendered insecure by the
events of the last day. A bold, vicious
Stroke was his only means for securing
the prize he longed for more than he
longed for honor and fame.
Restless and enraged, consumed by
Jealousy and fear, he hung about the
castle grounds long after he had drawn
the diabolical charges. He knew that
Baldos was inside tbe castle, favored,
while he, a noble of the realm, was relegated to Ignominy and the promise of
degradation. Encamped outside the
city walls tbe army lay without a
leader. Each hour saw the numbers
augmented by the arrival of reserves
from the districts of the principality.
His place was out there with the staff,
yet he could not drag himself away
from the charmed circle ln which his
prey was sleeping. Morose and grim
he anxiously paced to and fro ln an
obscure corner of the grounds.
"What keeps the scoundrel?" he said
to himself angrily.
Presently a villainous looking man,
dressed in the uniform of the guards,
stealthily approached. "I missed him,
general, but I will get hlm the next
time," growled the man.
"Curse you for a fool!" hissed Marlanx through his teeth. As another
hireling came up, "What have you got
to say?"
The man reported that Baldos bad
been seen on the balcony alone, evidently on watch.
Marlanx ground his teeth and bis
blood stormed his reason. "The Job
must be done tonight You have your
Instructions. Capture him if possible;
but, If necessary, kill him. You know
your fate If you fail." Marlanx actually grinned at the thought of the punishment he would mete out to them.
"Now be off I"
1  Rashly he made bis way to the castle
front   A bright moon cast its mellow
glow over the mass of stone outlined
against the western sky.   For an hour
he glowered ln the shade of the trees,
giving but slight heed to the guards
.who passed from time to time.   His
eyes never left the enchanted balcony.
At last he saw the man.    Baldos
came from the door at the end of the
balcony, paced the full length ln the
moonlight, paused for a moment near
Beverly Calhoun's window and then
disappeared  through  the  same  door
tbat had afforded him egress.
1  Inside the dark castle the clock at
the end of the hall melodiously boomed
tbe hour of 2.   Dead quiet followed
the soft echoes of the gong.   A tall
figure stealthily opened  tbe  door to
Yetive's  chapel and  stepped  Inside.
There   was   a   streak   of   moonlight
through the clear window at the far
end of the room.   Baldos, his heart
beating rapidly, stood still for a moment, awaiting the next move ln the
game.   The ghostlike figure of a woman suddenly stood before him In the
path of the moonbeam, a hooded figure ln dark robes.   He started as If
confronted by the supernatural.
"Come," came ln an agitated whisper, and he stepped to the side of the
phantom. She turned, and the moonlight fell upon the face of Beverly Calhoun. "Don't speak. Follow me as
quickly as you can."
He grasped her arm, bringing her to
a standstill.
"I have changed my mind," he whispered ln her ear. "Do you think I will
run away and leave you to Bhoulder
the blame for all this? On the balcony
hear your window an hour ago I"���
"It doesn't make any difference," she
argued. "You have to go. I want you
to go. If you knew Just how I feel toward you you would go without a
"You mean that you hate me," he
"I wouldn't be so unkind ns to say
that," she fluttered. "I don't know
who you are. Come, wo can't delay a
minute. I have a key to the gate at
the other end of tho passage, and I
know where the secret panel Is located. Hush! It doesu't matter where I
got the key.   See!  See how easy it is!"
He felt her tense little fingers ln the
darkness searching for his. Their hands
were icy cold when the clasp came. Together they stood ln n niche of the wall
near tho chancel rail. It was dark, and
a cold draft of air blew across their
(aces. He, could japtjws, but tbe.re__w___
We'll light It as soon as���  Oh, what
was that?"
"Don't be frightened,"  he said.   "I
think it was a rat."
"Good   gracious!"   she   gasped.   "I
wouldn't go In there for tho world."
"Do you mean to say that you Intended to do so?" he asked eagerly.
"Certainly.  Some one has to return
the key to the outer gate.  Oh, I suppose I'll have to go in.   You'll keep
them off, won't you?" plaintively.  He
was smiling ln the dnrkness, thinking
what a dear, whimsical thing she was.
"With my life," he said softly.
"They're ten times worse than lions,"
she announced.
|    "You must not forget that you return alone," he said triumphantly.
i    "But I'll have tbe lantern going full
blast," she said and then allowed him
to lead her into the narrow passage-
' way.   She closed the panel and then
felt about with her foot until it located
the lantern.  In a minute they had a
light "Now, don't be afraid," she said
encouragingly. He laughed in pure delight She misunderstood his mirth and
was conscious of a new and an almost
unendurable pang. He was filled with
exhilaration over the prospect of escape! Somehow she felt an impulse to
throw her arms about him and drag
him back into the chapel in spite of the
ghost of the game warden's daughter.
"What is to prevent me from taking
you with me?" he said Intensely, a
mighty longing in his breast She
laughed, but drew back uneasily. -
"And live unhappily ever afterward?" said she. "Oh, dear mel Isn't
this a funny proceeding? Just think
of me, Beverly Calhoun, being mixed
up in schemes and plots and intrigues
and all that! It seems like a great
big dream. And that reminds me���
you will find a rain coat at the foot of
the steps. I couldn't get other clothes
for you, so you'll have to wear the
uniform. There's a stiff hat of Mr.
Lorry's also. You've no Idea how difficult It is for a girl to collect clothes
for a man. There doesn't seem to be
any real excuse for it, you know.
Goodness, it looks black ahead there,
doesn't it? I hate underground things.
They're so damp and all that. How
far is It do you suppose, to the door
in the wall?" She was chattering on,
simply to keep up her courage and to
make her fairest show of composure.
"It's a little more than 300 yards,"
he replied. They were advancing
through the low, narrow stone lined
passage. She steadfastly ignored the
hand he held back for support. It was
not n pleasant place, this underground
way to the outside world. The walls
were damp nnd moldy; the odor of the
rank earth assailed the nostrils; tEe
air was chill and deathlike.
"How do you know?" she demanded
"I have traversed the passage before, Miss Calhoun," he replied. Sho
stopped like one paralyzed, her eyes
wide and Incredulous. "Frnnz was my
guide from the outer gate into the
chapel. It is easy enough to get outside the walls, but extremely difficult
to return," he went ou easily.
"You mean to say that you have
been in and out by way of this passage? Then, what was your object,
sir?" sho demanded sternly.
"My desire to communicate with
friends who could not enter the city.
Will it interest you if I say that the
particular object of my concern was
a young woman?"
She gasped and was stubbornly silent for a long time. Bitter resentment
filled her soul, bitter disappointment in
this young man. "A young woman!"
he had said, oh, so Insolently! There
could be but one inference", one conclusion. The realization of it settled one
point in her mind forever.
"It wouldn't Interest me In the least.
I don't even care who she was. Permit me to wish you much joy with her.
Why don't you go on?" Irritably, forgetting that It was she who delayed
progress. His smile was lnvlsihle In
tho blackness above the lantern. There
were no words spoken until after they
had reached the little door ln the wall.
Here the passage was wider. There
wore casks and chests on the floor, evidently containing articles that required
Instant removal from Edelweiss In
cuso of an emergency.
"Who was that woman?" she asked
at last. The key to the door was lu the
nervous little hand.
"One very near and dear to me, Miss
Calhoun. That's all I can say at this
"Well, this is the only time you will
have the chance," she cried loftily.
"Here wo pnrt. Hush!" she whispered,
Involuntarily grasping his arm. "I
think I heard a step. Can any one be
following us?" They stopped and listened.   It was as still ns a tomb.
"It must be the same old rat," he
answered jokingly. She was too nervous for any pleasantries and, releasing
her hold on his arm, said timidly,
"Am I to go ln this manner? Have
you no kind word for mc? I love you
better than my soul. It Is of small
consequence to you, I know, but I
crave one forgiving word. It may be
tho Inst." He clasped her hand, nnd
she did not withdraw It. Her lips
were trembling, but her eyes were
brave and obstinate. Suddenly she snt
down upon one of the chests. If he
had not told her of the other woman!
"Forgive me Instead, for all that I
have brought you to," she murmured.
"It was all my fault. I shall never
forget you or forgive myself. I���I am

Here's the
key. Hurry! 1-1 can't stand It much

nnd he saw It, but he made no sign.
Turning the key In tlie rusty lock, he
cautiously opened tho door. The moonlit world lay beyond. A warm, Intox*
icating breath of fresh air came in
upon them. lie suddenly stooped and
kissed her hand.
"Forgive mo for having annoyed you
with my poor love," he snld as he
stood In the door, looking into the
night beyond.
"All���nil right," she choked out as
she started to close the door after him.
"Halt!   You are our prisoner!"
The words rang out sbnrply ln the
silence of tho night. Instluctlvely Beverly mnde nn attempt to close th*
door, but she was too late. Two burly,
villainous looking men, sword In hand,
blocked the exit nnd advanced upon
"Back! Back!" Baldos shouted to
Beverly, drawing his sword.
Like a flash she picked up the Inn
tern and sprang out of his way. Cup*
ture or worse seemed certain, but her
heart did not full her,
"Put up your sword! You are under
arrest!" came from tho foremost of the
two. He had heard enough of Baldos"

ruse might be successful and that hf
would surrender peaceably to number!

A Series of Articles Describing their Lives, their Aim*

Late   Editor   and   Proprietor   of   the
Alameda   Dispatch
Mr. J. J. Heaslip, whc has recently
disposed of his newspaper, the Alameda Dispatch, and retired, temporarily at least, from active newspaper
work, is a striking example of the
successful western publisher. He belongs to that rare class of men who
enter the journalistic field late in a
business career, and without previous
training are enabled, through a combination of latent literary ability and
keen business insight, to conduct a
newspaper with every degree of suc-
The subject of this sketch is a
native of Ontario, his birthplace being near the town of Peterboro. His
early education was secured at the
public school of his native town, and
was later supplemented by a course
in a business college at Toronto.
Commencing life as a farmer, Mr.
'Heaslip was attracted by the glowing
possibilities that awaited the settler
in the west, and in 1881 he made his
first trip to the prairie province. At
that time Portage la Prairie was the
railway terminus, and leaving the
train at this point, he travelled
through several districts to obtain an
accurate idea of the quality of the
land and to secure information about
tlie country before returning east.
The following spring (1882) he decided io move to the west, and coming out with a party of fifteen settlers, he reached Brandon on the 16th
of April, 1882. After leaving Brandon
the party travelled by ox team, the
objective point being adjacent to the'
confluence of the Moose Creek and
Souris River. After a leisurely trip
made for the purpose of looking over
the country, Mr. Heaslip finally
settled at a point four miles west of
the present town of Alameda. It
was the life .of the pioneer in those
days, for there were no other settlers
within a radius of 100 miles and the
nearest postoffice was Brandon, in
the latter part of 1882 the railway
was extended to Moosomin, which
was the wheat market for the next
ten years. Of the original party who
came west with Mr. Heaslip, only
three or four returned to the east.
Tbe rest remained and are now prosperous residents of the district. But
one death, and that recently, ha,*;
occurred to diminish the number.
Land in this district was not in
the market in the year 1882, and in
order to make homestead entries the
settlers had to go to Regina. Mr.
Heaslip returned to Ontario for the
winter., came back the following*
spring, and continued to reside in
the country until he had completed
his homestead duties and acquired
his patent. Owing to the great distance from a railway, Mr. Heaslip
then considered the advisability of
removing nearer to some point where
was offered facilities for the shinment
of grain. He accordingly took another homestead, which was at that
time permissible, and remained in
the country for the three years necessary for the completion of the
regulation duties. Although receiving assurances of a railway from
year to year, the road was not completed to Oxbow until the fall ol
1891, and did not reach Alameda until  the   year  following.
Abandoning work on the farm, Mi
Heaslip opened a lumber yard in
Oxbow in 1891, and in 1892 established a hardware and implement
business in Alameda. The first shipment of freight to be forwarded
west of Oxbow was consigned to Mr.
Heaslip and consisted of two carloads
of lumber. With this material he
erected the first building in Alamada,
which is now occupied by Messrs.
Cook & Deyell, hardware merchants.
Shortly after becoming established in Alameda Mr. Heaslip sold his
lumber business in Oxbow, and after
a successful career, in both the hardware and implement business, these
were also disposed of, and a private
bank opened.
It was in July, 189*1, that Mr. Heaslip entered the field of journalism,
and acquired the Alameda Dispatch.

In the same manner ln which he had
thrown bis talents and energies into
the previous enterprises with which
'ie lied been connected, Mr. Heaslip
at once entered with zest into the
work of producing a newspaper that
would reflect in the truest sense the
growing importance of the town and
district it served. In typographical
finish and mechanical make-up the
Dispatch was brought to the highest
point of excellence. The publisher
was prompt in the introduction of
improved methods and devices. The
newspaper office was thoroughly
equipped with machinery of the most
modern pattern, which included a
type-setting machine and high grade
presses. This resulted in the production of a paper that was neat and
tidy in style of print and appearance.
While Mr. Heaslip is a Conservative
i. politics, tiie Dispatch has been
conducted on strictly independent
lines, although never neutral.
Mr. Heaslip has been a notary public and justice of the peace for fifteen years, and for the past three
years has seived at the head of municipal affairs. He is president of
tlie Crown Lumber & Coal company,
with yards at Alameda and Fro-
bislter, and also conducts a private
bank, where a general banking business is transacted.
With characteristic enterprise, Mr.
Heaslip installed the telephone system in Alameda, which gives a satisfactory service and now has connections with the leading business
and private residences in town. Ho
also installed the first acetylene
plant in Alameda.
Mr. Heaslip has always taken a
keen interest in all healthy, manly
sports. He is an enthusiastic patron
of hockey and lacrosse, and a large
shareholder in the local skating
rink. Last summer he purchased a
motor car, and motoring forms his
chief diversion during tho summer
months. He has become familiarized
with the mechanical parts of the
machine to a detail, and is thoroughly conversant with the principles
underlying propulsion.
Mr. Heaslip is a firm believer in
keeping in close touch with every
detail of the numerous enterprises
under his control, and this no doubt
is largely responsible for the success
that has invariably attended his business dealings. Every department of
his business is conducted on a system. He is withal courteous and affable in deportment, graceful in manner and has an enviable reputation
for being thoroughly honorable in
all his dealings. Convin6ing in argument, optimistic in view, Mr.
Heaslip is an entertaining conversationalist. He can discuss with freedom and ease a wide range of subjects, and is particularly well informed on the various matters pertaining to municipal work. In the
midst of his multifarious business
duties he finds time to spend three
or four hours daily in his library,
and is consequently very widely read,
and keeps in close touch with the
leading questions of the day.
It is but natural to assume that
Mr. Heaslip has a splendid residence.
His home is a large stone building,
the largest in fact in the district,
and is  beautifully enclosed.
In religion Mr. Heaslip is a Presbyterian, is an elder in the church
and one  of its warmest supporters.

attempt to save those aboard the
steamer Larchmont, which was sunk
in Long Island Sound, New York, on
February 11. During a terrific gale,
when the thermometer was nearly at
zero, the Larchmont collided with the
three-masted schooner Harry Knowl-
ton and sank in a few minutes. The
Elsie stood by, and the crew, at great
personal risk, picked up as many survivors as. possible. The Larchmont,
snys the "Express," was an old-fashioned, wooden, three-decked paddle
steamer plying between Providence
(Rhode Island) And New York. A
number of passengers who managed to
leave tbe sinking steamer in boats or
on rafts were afterwards swept away
bv the mountainous seas, or frozen to
death. Between 175 and 200 persons
were lost, and a number of those rescued afterwards died from exposure.

Dr.   Miller  Takes  Up   Important Appointment In the States.
Dr. II-... W. Miller, who has just
taken up his duties as psychopatholo-
gist at the Cook County Institution at
Dunning (Chicago), 111., is a young
Camdian who is making quite a name
for himself in the United States. The
case of Dr. Miller may be cited as an
example to illustrate the extent to
Which civil service reform has been
carried on in the Republic during the
last few years. When he first offered
himself as a candidate as an assistant in an institution for the insane in
M��**=tachusetts���although he had been
assured that merit alone Aould be
considered in making the appointment
���he naturally had misgivings that, as
an alien without influence, and in
view r.t the general impression regard-
in* the prevalence of political "pull"
in filling offices in the States, that
he would be discriminated against.
But the result of bis application proved a pleasant surprise to himself and
his friends. There were three plates
to be rilled and, of the numerous can-
didttes who wrote on the examination only two came up to the standard set and received appointment.
One was a Canadian���Dr. Miller himself���and the other a Scotchman from
Glasgow���both British subjects.
Since tbat time Dr. Miller has been***'* quite widely known by tbe medical profession in the United States ns
an authority on tbe pathological treat-
���nent of insanity. He secured his present nuite important and remunerative
position entirelv on his merits. Of tlie
ninety candidates for the place he
made the highest showing on examination, and was promptly offered the
There has been in the United States
of late a great awakening to the need
of more scientific and rational treatment of insanity as a mental disease
possible of prevention, amelioration
and <������������--. We in Canada are for behind our neighbors in this regard. Unfortunately, although a Canadian, Dr.
Miller would not, under present con-
diti*-""- in Ontario at least, stand
much chance of being given the opportunity to turn his talents to the
service of his native country, his family being strong Liberals. Tt is understood that hnd he been a Conservative he would nrobably have been secured bv the Ontario Government to
improve "Winds of treating the insane in this province. It is said, indeed, that one member of the Cabinet
was very desirous of securing him
for this work. But although the doctor would have willingly remained
here at a smaller salary than he is receiving in Chicago, such nn appointment  wns   a   political    impossibility.
Dr. Miller is a son of Mr. C. J Miller. ex-Mnyor of Orillla, Ont. He graduated in medicine at the University
of Toronto in 1895.���Saturday Night.

A Perfect  Luxury to Japan Tea Drinkers.
Wit of Scottish Bench W1��o Lived In
Five Reigns.
The death is announced of Lord
Young, who passed away in a private nursing home in the West End
of London. His Lordship, who was
in his 88th year, met with an accident when walking through tlie Temple, and the shock hastened his end.
The cause of death is certified as
cerebral hemorrhage and old age.
His remains were removed to Edinburgh for interment. Born when
George III. was still on the throne,
the Eight Hon. George Young���his
title was purely honorary���lived in
five reigns. He was still at Edinburgh University when Tsord John
Russell was fighting on behalf of his
Reform Bill, and before Queen Victoria had been three years on the
throne he was making a name at the
Scottish Bar. For over 30 years he
was a judge of tlie Court of Session,
Edinburgh, retiring only two years
ago, and his rare legal erudition was
pleasantly seasoned with the salt of a
ready wit. Before his nomination to
the judgeship by Mr. Gladstone he
made his mark in the House of Commons, where he represented the Wigtown Burghs in the Liberal interest,
and twice filled the office of Solicitor-
General to Scotland and Lord Advocate. It has been said of Lord Young
that he was the only judicial humorist of whom Scotland could boast.
One of the sayings attributed to him
was that there are three degrees of
those Who bear testimony in courts���
the liar, th*e liar, and the expert witness. In the case of a clever swindler who had earned some fame as n
philanthropist, an advocate pleaded
clemency, reminding the judge that
those who gave to the poor lent to *
the   Lord.     "True,   Mr.    ,"   said
Lord Young, "but I'm afraid we can-
na cash your man's post obits in this ;
court." I
A Heavy Premium. i
Another of his sayings wa*
that the gift of half a million to tht
Church of Scotland by the late Mi
James Baird, the ironmaster, was th*.
"heaviest fire insurance premium
ever paid." He was staying at Dal- j
meny when news came that Lord Wol-
mer had been returned by three votes '
for West Edinburgh. The next arrival explained that the figures should
have been 300, and that two Lords of
Session, whom he named, had voted
for Lord Wolmer. "That accounts
for the two ciphers," said Lord Young.
Going on assize with the late Lord
Deas, when it was the custom to open
the court with prayer, Lord Young
remarked at luncheon afterwards.
"Very long prayer that fellow gave
us to-day, but, after all, I suppose
it's quite right when Deas goes on
circuit that the attention of the Almighty should be specially called to
the fact." When one of the Lords
Ordinary in the outer House of the
Court of Session, Young had a somewhat heavy roll of business, partly
owing to a vacancy on the Bench
having been kept open longer than
usual. One of his colleagues at the
time was Lord Craighill, and the new
judge, when at last he was appointed,
took the title of Lord Curriehill. On
the appointment being announced
Lord Young gratefully quoted the first
two lines of the 121st Psalm:
I to tht "hills" will lift mine eyes.
From whence doth come mine aid.
Lord Young's speeches and stories
were always good. At the banquet
which followed the ceremony of conferring, upon him the freedom of Dumfries, four years ago, he told the com- |
pany a story about his father who
in the old days owned some very fine
apple trees.
Raids Upon Fruit.
There were many raids made upon
the fruit, and Lord Young's father
laid hold of a likely youth one day
and offered him half-a-crown if he
would give a hint as to who was responsible. The boy accepted the
money on the condition that when
the culprit's name was disclosed he
would not be punished. In telling
this story Lord Young caused much
merriment by turning to the Provost
of the town, who was in the chair,
and asking him what he did with
the half-a-crown. His lordship was
one of the last links with Robert
Burns. He knew Jean Armour,
Burn's widow, and frequently partook
of hospitality in the house in which
the poet had lived, and in which he
died. His lordship also knew Burn's
children, and the poet's granddaughter, who lived wilh Jean Armour, frequently visited his father's house.
Lord Young was one of the benchers
of the Middle Temple, and though
his visits were rare, he was one of the
most popular of the Masters. He
was tho senior member of the Bench
excepting only the King, who from
the time of his election when Prince
of Wales of course took priority.
Entering a Mosque.
The popular Idea that people are
*>l)llged us a sign of respect to take
off their slioes before entering a
mosque Is incorrect. This ls done simply because tlie floors of the mosques
are covered either with mats or car
pets, which must be scrupulously
clean, as during their devotions the
faithful touch them perpetually wltb
their foreheads. If you wear gnloebe-*,
or overshoes, you have only to remove
them nnd boldly walk Into the mosque
In your hoots. Another popular error
connected with tlie mosques Is the belief that, according to the Koran, Christians must uot ho allowed to enter
them. This Is absolutely opposed to
tho teaching of the Koran, which declares that any man or woman may en
ter a mosque, be his religion whnt It
mny. Indeed, in the earlier period of
the history of Islam It was considered
that to invite tliein to attend the service was nn excellent method of con
verting unbelievers, At the present
time there is but one mosque In Con
Btnntlnople which a giaour may not Inspect, the mosque of Eyub.���"The Sultan and His Subjects."
