Oyer 3,000' Feel of Work
Bone-Beep Mining Is .
It was tbe editor's very great pleasure
lust week to pay a visit to the Standard
mine,  and  thanks to  tbe cmrtesy of
Mr. Aylard we were permitted to inspect
all the workings.     This  property wss
staked in 1893 by Mike Grady  and hit
partner Briggs, who after shipping the
outcropping* drove a  crosscut to tap
ledge lower,   but after going about 40
feet   they   ceased altogether   and   Ihe
luture big  producer was left in a dormant state until tome two  and a half
years ago,  when Messrs. G. H. Aylard
and J. A.   Finch   eecured control,  and
continuing the   crosscut  they  at   hist
struck the ledge, and drifting, Bhortly
afterwards found the heart-gladdening
ore.    Then  No. 2 tunnel was  started
below,  and the  vein was picked up at
40U feet in.     Tlie  pftystreak   ;as tUill
found to be as good as abovo,  and 150
feet more of work was done on  the dip
of tlie lead, and several ears ol ore extracted.     The values holding out and
tho vein going down, number 8 tunnel
was begun and pusliod to a depth of
500 ft. and they drifted for another 70ft.
on the lead  after striking it.     Here it
was  seen  that the property bote  the
earmarks of a big  mine,   tbere being
three to four feet of solid  ore,  and  the
indications of tetter, down further.
No. 4 was begun and driven for 300
feet and a raise wus niada on oro for
150 feet, and connection established
witli No. 8. A crosscut GO feet long was
driven to the footwall, and two other
crosscuts of 50 and 70 foot were made
in No. 4 to the. footwall. Sloping was
going on ixUn ively between 8 and 4.
Tlie value of the development thus far
is shown in the fact that tbey have a
virgin* stopinz area of 100 feet vertical
and 150 fe��t on the dip, with "all indications of the values continuing down
the hill.,
Operations to determine the continuity of tlie lead are being proceeded
with. No. 5 level is in 400 feet, and
they are now about 17 feet on a crosscut
for lead. It is estimated that 50 feet
further will biing them to the ore body.
So confident are. the owners that the
values go down that a sixth level is
being pushed simultaneously with No.
5, and that is in 300 feet also. Two
crosscuts, one 25 feet in and tlie other
50, are now heading for tho ledge.
When tbe ore is tapped at this depth
they will be 1000 feet vertically below
the outcrop, and then it is reasonable
to consider the Standard in the front
rank of Slocan banner mines. It will
also bu one of the dtepest mines in the
Other work done consists of a parallel
tunnel on footwall of No. 4, which is in
100 feet, and a crosscut not already
mentioned in No. 4. There are also
two intermediate tunnels between 2nd
and 3rd level, aggregating 1.0 feet. In
No. 8 there is a crosscut in zinc and
quartz for 46 feet.
Tho Standard is a silver-lead proposition whicli will play an important part
n the future of the camp. Abovo the
third level there are thousands of tons
of concentrating ore left standing, the
body of il running from 2 to 4 It. wide.
Several thousands of tuns of this oro is
also lying on the dumps.
Last year, despite the fact that u
program of development was pursued,
<;,.() Ions of ore, averaging 80 ozb. silver
and 05 per cent. lend lo the ton, was
sent to the smelter, and since tho new
year started, 85 tons more have been

A daring robbery in broad daylight
was committed ao Sandon on Monday.
Station-agent McCready of the K. and
S. railway, had just taken from the till
in the oflico an envelope containing
paper money to the value oi $80, wliich
he intended to hand to the conductor of
tlie train due to leave for Knslo in a few
minutes. Just as he laid tho envelope
down he was called to the wicket to
i6suo a ticket, and on looking for the
envelops a few minutee later it had
mysteriously vanished. Tlie agent has
no recollection of any person entering
liis office whilst he was at the wicket,
and lie will swear that ths door was
shut. No doubt Chief Lawson will
solve the iiiysleiy.

Dear Sir,���I would like to ask your

why donkeys have such long ears?
In case ho cannot solve the question,
I will relieve hirh of the task: '"That
they may liateu to their ovvii music!"
Tiie discordant sounds emanating
from the Bridge of Asses (assinorum
translated) have destroyed the peace
and harmony for which New Denver
has been so long noted, and caused thc
two young asses (pointed at and publicly identified), to bray and kick furiously, not for bristles, but for humane
What are a few wild oats in a world
of wheat 7 The greatest saint upon
earth cannot but acknowledge early indiscretions of youth. Assinorum should
bear in mind that 'ho bas sons of his
own growing up, who may in time to
come cause him Berious trouble, and
would recall to liis mind how he injured
the characters of two young asses and
wounded the feelings of those who
trained them.
Assinorum may be reminded that
there is ona in his own stable who
should be bridled and broken. Charity
begins etc., etc.   Yours truly,

we offered for their benefit hist week, as

The average cost of placing ono ton of

Tho output from the district again

about by lho increased tonnage from

This equals more than .10 per ton on

As the entiie plant costs some $4000,
it will be seen that a 500 ton dump of
25 oz. ore would be sufficient to pay the
entire cost 'of J installation. Aa an
accessory to the. ordinary milling process tlira concentrator stands to repay
itself over and over again in connection
with zinc savins;.
At present zinc milling cannot be said
to be a success in the country, because
the high grade product  require*} in the
market is not possible without exclusive J
losses in the tailings.
As, however, the tailings are in exactly .the condition required by this concentrator, tho zinc can be recovered
from them ie marketable form ami tho
losses reduced to l-10thof what they
aro at present. The ollioial figures for
zinc saving aro as follows :

Recently the Ore Concentrating Co. of
London, England, has conducted a
series of experiments in ore concentration by a modification of tbe Elmore
Oil process. These experiments have
been so successful in cases where the
ordinary milling process fails completely, that all thoso interested in concentration processes should be acquainted
with the details.
This process ie based on the three fol-
fowing facts:
1. When oil is added to an ore pulp
in water it selects and adheres to the
mineral particles and not to tho rock or
gangue matter.
2. When gas is evolved from the pulp
by addition of a little aeid.it adheres
to tho oil-coated mineral particles and
not to the gangue or rock. . i
8. Whin the pressure is reduced
above the ere pulp the oil coated mineral particles wilh gas attached rise to
the surface of the liquid, while the
gangue remains at tho bottom,
Actually the apparatus used consists
of a ilume shaped tank with a revolving
bottom, with inlets for ore pulp, oil
and acid ; an outlet at the surface of thu
pulp for the coneentrat.es, and another
towards the bottom for tho waste rock.
The upper portion is connected with a
suction pump, so that the pressure can
be reduced at will.
These concentrators have been testod
by eminent engineers of good standing
and the results of tests mado on a great
variety of ores has been published.
Thu details given of experiments in dry
ores and zinc concentration are of
special interest to us,   The results were
Bank-accountant Cornwall   was   the
guest oi tlie evening at a   sumptuous
banquet given at the New'lnarkct Hotel
on Saturday evening last.   Like  Niobe
(all siuiles) some  40guests partook   of
the epicurean dishes served up by Count
Senior Steward  Stege,   The New  Denver Rifle assocla-
Junior Steward   tjon ,���;,' u,e honors to a departing  com-
rude, and they loaded him  up with delicacies In and out of season and  yards
of (lattery.    By tfie way, he found his
hat after tbe skirmish, and it still fitted
him.   Mr. J. E. Cornwall has occupied
the position of teller-accountant at the
local branch   of tiie Bank of Montreal
for  the past three years,   and during
that timo lie has boen one of the  prime
figures  in  athletic and  social circles.
His promotion to the'Spokane branch
while being hailed  with delight by his
many friends, has  left a  vacancy here
whicli will take a  lot of filling.     Mr.
Cornwall   was tbe  crack   shot   of the
local rifle association and last year won
the annual handicap from scratch.    He
was the best hockey and football player
in the Lucerne, and the swiftest sprinter
in the Slocan.   Ho is an  all round athlete, and one of those sort of young men
who nre found In the thick of anything
doing to help out tbe town.     Whether
it was   threading needles  at a  quilting
bee, or building new sidewalks,  he was
always Johnny-on-the-spot.    Ho would
ring the church'bell (ur the minister with
one  hand and  lend you a 5 spot with
the other.   He could admire  your garden   with   his  right optic,  and  make
goo-goos to thc girls at the same  time.
Uo eould  toll  you  the   latest market
price of silver and wheiethe best grouse
shooting was to bo had.   He could rake
in a jackpot as neatly as Soapy Smith,
and escort you to  your  church pew  as
graceful as Beau Brummel; and last bul,
not   least,  be   wore  lhe  smile  whicli
never slipped for tho three yeais he has
been   counting   scrip    and    throwing
American   silver  in   the coal  scuttle.
Small wonder then that bis many friends
of tho. rifle association  should  gather
him in for a final  blowout, and  so said
"Is that original?"   Let it pass.
Everybody do something to advertise
the town."

It was a long, tiresome ride tor
grandpa, from Honedale to Aikenside,
and as he was not in his wife's secret, he accepted thankfully the doo*
tor's offer to take Maddy there himself. With this arrangement Maddy
was well pleased, as it would thus
afford her the opportunity she had
so much desired, of talking with the
doctor about his bill, and asking him
to wait until she had earned enough
to pay it.
To the aged couple, parting for the
flrst time with their darling, the da}
was very sad, but they would not
intrude their grief upon the young
girl looking so eagerly forward to the
new life opening before her; only
grandpa's voice faltered a little when.
in the morning prayer, he commended his child to God. asking that she
might be kept from temptation, and
that the new sights and scenes to
which she was going might not beget
* in her a love of the world's vanities,
or a disgust for her old home; but
that she might come back to it the
Same loving, happy child as she was
then, and never be ashamed of the
parents to whom she was so dear.
There was an answering sob from the
chair where Maddy knelt, and after
the devotions were ended she wound
her arm around her grandfather's
neck,  and said earnestly:
"Grandpa, do you think I could
ever be ashamed of you and grandma?"
"I hope not, darling; it would break
our hearts; but finery and things is
mighty apt to set folks up, and after
you have walked a spell on the velvet
carpets, you'll no doubt think your
feet make a bir_ noise on our bare
kitchen floor."
"That may be, but I shan't be
ashamed of you. No, not if I were
Mrs. Guy Remington herself." And
Maddy emphasized her words with a
kiss, as she thought how nice it would
be, provided she were a widow, to
be Mrs, Guy Remington, and have
her grandparents live at Aikenside
with her.
"But, pshaw! I'll never be Mrs.
anybody; and if I am, I'll have to
have a husband, which would be such
a bather!" was her next mental comment, as, leaving her grandfather, she
went up to help her grandmother with
the breakfast dishes, wondering when
she would wipe those blue cups again,'*!
and how she sbould feel when she
Quickly the morning passed, and
just as the clock struck two the doctor's buggy appeared over the hill.
Up to this moment Maddy had only
been happy in anticipation; but when,
with her shawl nnd bonnet on, she
stood waitiiie* while the doctor fastened her little trunk, and when she
saw a tear on the wrinkled faces of
both her grandparents, her fortitude
gave way; and 'mid a storm of sobs,
she said her good-bys and received
her grandfather's blessing.
It was very plenSant this afternoon,
for the summer breeze was blowing
���eool across the fields, where the laborers were busy; and with the elasticity of youth, Maddy's tears stopped
their flowing, but not until the dear
old home had disappeared, and they
were some distance on tbe road to
"I wonder how I shall like Mrs.
Remington and Mr. Guy?" was the
first remark she made.
"You'll not see them immediately.
They left this morning for Saratoga,"
the doctor replied.
"Left! Mr. Guy gone!" Maddy repeated in a disappointed tone.
"Are you ver,v sorry?" the doctor
asked, and. Maddy replied:
"I did want to see him once; I
never have."
It would be such a surprise to find
that Guy was no other than the terrible inspector, that he would not undeceive her, the doctor thought; and
so he relapsed into a thoughtful
mood, from whicli Maddy aroused him
by breaking the subject of the unpaid bill, asking if he'd please not
trouble grandpa, but wait until she
could pay it.
"Perhaps it's wrong asking it when
you were so good, but if you only
will take me for payment," and Maddy's soft brown eyes were lifted to
his face.
"Yes, Maddy, I'll take you for payment," the doctor said, smiling, half
seriously, as his eyes rested fondly
upon her.
Even then stupid Maddy did not
understand him, but becan to calculate out loud how long it would
take to earn the money. She'd heard
people say that the doctor charged a
dollar a visit to Honedale, and he'd
been so many, many times, that it
would take a great many weeks to
pay him; besides, there was the debt
to Mr. Guy. She wanted to help pay
that, but did not see how sbe could,
unless be waited, too. Did the doctor think he would? It seemed terrible to the doctor that one so young
as Maddy should be harassed with
the payment of debts, and he felt a
most intense desire fdr the right to
shield her from all such care, but
he must not speak of it then; he'd
rather she should remain a little longer an artless child, confiding all her
troubles to him as if he had been her
��� "There's Aikenside," he said, at
last, and it was not long before they
passed through the gate, guarded by
the great bronze lions, and struck
into the road leading to the house.
"It's grander, finer, than* I ever
dreamed. Oh! if I could some time
have just such a home! and, doctor.
look! What does make that water
go up in the air so? Is it what they
���call a fountain?"
In her excitement Maddy had risen, and with one hand resting on
the doctor's shoulder, was looking
���round her eagerly. Guy Remington
would have laughed, and been gratified, too, could he have heard the
enthusiastic praises heaped upon his
home by the little schoolgirl as she
drove up to his door. But Guy was
away in the dusty cars, and only
Jessie stood on the piazza to receive
her teacher. There were warm words
of welcome, kisses and hugs; and then
Jessie led her friend to the chamber
she  was  to  occupy.
"Mother wanted you to sleep the
other side of the house, but Brother
���Suj' ^Qi*i. ne* ^ou^hrrjld ___!_����_&.. a

a thing, it's so. It's nice in here,
and close, to me. See. I'm right .here,"
and Jessie opened a door leading directly to her own sleeping room.
"Here's one trunk," she continued,
as a servant brought up and set
down, a little contemptuously, the
small haircloth box containing Maddy's wardrobe. "Here's one; where's
the rest?" and she was flying after
Tom, when Maddy stopped her, saying:
"I have but one���that's all."
"Only that little, teenty thing?
How funny! Why, mamma carried
three 'most ns big as my bed to Saratoga.    You can't have many dresses'.
What are you going to wear to dm,
ner?" .
"I've been to dinner." And Maddy
looked  up  in   some   surprise.
"You have! We never have it till
five, when Guy is at home; but now
they arc gone, Mrs. Noah says we
will have it at one, as folks ought to
do. To-day I coaxed her to wait till
you came, and the table is all set
out so nicely for two. Can you carve,
and do you like green turtle soup?"
Maddy was bewildered, but managed to reply that she could not
carve, that she never saw any green
turtle soup, and that she supposed
she should wear to dinner -the delaine she had on.
"Why, we always change, even
Mrs. Noah," Jessie exclaimed, bending over the open trunk and examining its contents.
Two calicoes, a blue muslin, a
gingham, and another delaine, beside,)
the one she had on. That was the
sum total of Maddy's wardrobe, and
Jessie glanced at it a little ruefully
as Maddy carefully shook out the
nicely folded dresses and laid them
upon the bed. Here Mrs. Noah was
heard calling Jessie, who ran away
leaving Maddy alone for a moment.
Maddy had seen the look Jessie
gave her dresses, and for the first
time there dawned upon her mind
the possibility that her plain apparel
and ignorance of the ways of Aikenside might be to her the cause of
much mortification.
"And grandma said they were so
nioe, too���doing them up so carefully," she* said, her lip beginning to
quiver, and her eyes filling witrftears,
as thoughts of home came rushing
over her.
She could not force them back, and
laying her head upon the top of the
despised hair, trunk, she sobbed aloud.
Guy Remington's private room was
in that hall, and as the doctor knew
a book was to have been left there
for him, he took the liberty of getting it; passing Maddy's door he
heard the low sound of weeping, and
looking in, saw her where she Bat
or rather knelt upon the floor.
"Homesick so soon!" he said, advancing to her side, and then, amid
a torrent of tears, the whole came out.
Maddy never could do as they did
there, and everybody would laugh at
her so for an awkward thing; she
never knew that folks ate dinner at
five instead of twelve���she should
surely starve to death���she couldn't
carve���she could not eat rhud-turtte
soup, and she did not know which
dress to wear for dinner���would the
doctor tell her? There they were, and
she pointed to the bed, only five;
Bhe knew Jessie thought it mean.
Such was the substance of Maddy's
passionate outpouring of her griefs
to the highly perplexed doctor, who,
after quieting her somewhat, ascertained that the greatest present trouble was the deciding what dress was
suitable to the occasion. The doctor
had never made dress his study, but
as it happened he liked blue, and
so suggested it, as the one most likely to be becoming.
"That!" and Mnddy looked confounded. "Why, grandma never let
me wear that, except on Sunday;
that's my very  best dress."
"Poor child; I'm not sure it was
right for you to come here where the
life is so different from the quiet, unpretentious one you have led," the
doctor thought, but he merely said:
"It's my impression they wear their
best dresses here, all the time."
"But what will I do when that's
worn out? Oh, dear, dear, I wish I
had not come!" and another impetuous fit of weeping ensued, in the
midst of which Jessie came back,
greatly disturbed on Maddy's account,
and asking eagerly what was the matter.
Very adroitly the doctor managed
to draw Jessie aside, while as well as
he was able he gave her a few hintB
with regaid to her intercourse with
Maddy, and Jessie, who seemed in-
intuitively to understand him, went
I Trnck to the weeping girl, Boothing
her much as a little mother would
have soothed her child. They would
have such nice times, when Maddy
got used to their ways, which would
not take long, and nobody would
laugh at her, she said, when Maddy
expressed her fears on that point.
"You are too pretty, even if you do
make mistakes!" and then Bhe went
into ecstasies over the blue muslin
which was becoming to Maddy, and
greatly enhanced her girlish beauty
The tear stnins were all washed away
Jessie using very freely ber mother'**
eau-de-cologne, and making Maddy's
cheeks very red with rubbing; the
nut-brown hair was brushed until it
shone like satin, a little narrow band
of black velvet ribbon was pinned
about Maddy's snowy neck, and then
she was ready for that terrible ordeal, her first dinner at Aikenside.
The doctor was. going to stay, and
this helped to relieve her somewhat.
"You must come to the housekeeper's room and see her first," Jessie
said, and with a beating heart and
brain bewildered by the elegancies
which met her at every turn, Maddy
followed to where the dread Mrs.
Noah, in rustling black silk and a
thread-lace collar, sat sewing and
greatly enjoying the leisure she had
in her master's absence.
Mrs. Noah knew who Maddy was,
remembering the old man said that
she would not disgrace a drawing
room as fine as that at Aikenside.
She had discovered, too, that Mrs.
Agnes was opposed to her coming,
that only GuyJB determined will had
brought her there; and this, if nothing else, had disposed her to feel
kindly   toward   the   little
singular type oi beauiy���a Deautyun-
tarnished by any selfish, uncharitable,
or suspicious.feeling. Clear and truthful as a mirror, her brown eyes looked
into Mr3. Noah's, while her low
courtesy, so full of deference, found
its way straight to that motherly
"I am glad to see you. Miss Clyde,"
she said, "very glad."
Maddy's lip quivered a little and
her voice shook as she replied:
"Please call me Maddy. They do
at home, and I shan't be quite bo���
She could not say "homesick," lest
Bhe should break out again into a fit
of crying, but Mrs. Noah understood
her, and rememberinR her own experience when first she went from home,
she involuntarily stooped to kiss the
pure, white forehead of the girl, who
henceforth was sure ol one champion
at least at Aikenside.
The dinner was a success, so far as
Maddy was concerned. Not a single
mistake did she perpetrate, though
her cheeks burned painfully as she
felt the eyes of the polite waiters
fixed so often upon her, and fancied
they might.be laughing at her. But
they were not, and thanks to the kind-
hearted'Guy. they thought of her only
with respect, as one who was their
superior and must be treated accordingly. Knowing how different everything was at Aikenside from that to
which she hnd been accustomed, Guy,
with the thoughtfulness natural to
him, had taken the precaution of
speaking to each of the servants concerning Miss Clyde, Jessie's teacher.
As he could not be there himself
when she first carne it would devolve
upon them, more or less, to make it
pleasant for her by kind, civil attentions, he said, hinting at the dire displeasure sure to fall on anyone who
should be guilty of a misdemeanor
in that direction. To Paul, the coachman, he had been particular in his
charges, telling him who Maddy was,
and arguing that from the insolence
once given to the grandfather the offender was bound to be more polite
to the grandchild. The carriage was
to be at her and Jessie's command,
Paul never refusing a reasonable request to drive the young ladies when
and where they wished to go, while
a pretty little black pony, recently'
broken to the saddle for Agnes, was
to be at Miss Clyde's service, if she
chose to have it. As Guy's slightest
wish was always obeyed, Maddy's
chances for happiness were not small,
notwithstanding that she felt so desolate and lonely when the doctor left
her, and standing by Jessie, she watched him with a swelling heart until
he was lost to view in the deepening
Feeling that she must be homesick, Mrs. Noah suggested that she
try the fine piano in the little music
"Maybe you can't play, but you
can drum 'Days of Absence,' as most
girls do," and opening the lid she
bade Maddy "thump as long as she
Music was a delight to Maddy, who
coveted nothing so much as a knowledge of it, and sitting down upon
the stool, she touched the soft-toned
instrument, ascertaining by her ear
several sweet chordB, and greatly astonishing Jessie, who wondered at her
Bkill. Twice each week a teacher came
up from Devonshire to give lessons
to Jessie, but as yet she could only
play one scale and a few simple bars.
These she attempted to teach tp Maddy, who caught them so quickly and
executed them so well that Jessie waa>
delighted. Maddy ought to take lessons, she said, and some time during the next day she took to Mrs.
Noah a letter which she had written
to Guy. After going into ecstasies
over Maddy, saying she was the nicest kind of a girl, that she prayed
in the morning as well as at night,
and looked so sweet in blue, she asked if she couldn't take music lessons,
too, advancing many reasons why Bhe
should, one of which was that she
could play now a great deal better
than herself.
It was s<*vernl days before an answer came to this letter, and when
it did it brought Guy's consent for
Maddy to take lessons, together with
a note for Mr. Simons, requesting him
to consider Miss Clyde his pupil, as
well as Jessie.
Though greatly pleased with Aikenside, and greatly attached to Jessie,
Maddy had had many hours of loneliness when her heart was back in the
humble cottage where she knew they
were missing her so much, but now
a new world, a world of music, was
suddenly opened before her, and the
homesickness all disappeared. It had
been arranged with Mrs. Noah, by
Agnes, that Jessie should only study
for two hours each day, consequently
Maddy had nearly all the time to'her-
self, and well did Bhe improve it,
making so rapid progress that Simons
looked on amazed, declaring her ease
to be without a parallel, while Jessie
was left far behind. Indeed, after a
short time Maddy might have been
her teacher, and was of much service
to her in practicing.
Meanwhile the doctor came often
to Aikenside, praising Maddy's progress in music, and though he did
not know a single note, compelling
himself to listen while with childlike
satisfaction she played him her last
lesson. She was very happy now at
Aikenside, where all were so kind to.
her, and half wished that the family
would always remain as it was then,
that Agnes and Guy would not come
home, for with their coming she felt
there would be a change. It was nearly time now to expect them. Indeed,
Guy had written on one Saturday that
they should probably be home the
next, and during the ensuing week
Aikenside presented that most uncomfortable phase of a house being cleaned. Everything must be in order for
Mr. Guy, Mrs. Noah said, taking
more pains with his rooms than with
the remaining portion of the building.
Guy was her idol; nothing was too
good for him, few things quite good
enough, and she said so much in his
praise that Maddy began to shrink
from meeting him. What would he
think of her? Perhaps he might not
notice her in the least, and that would
be terrible. But, no, a man as kind
as he had shown himself to her would
at least pay her some attention, and
so at last she began to anticipate
his coming home, wondering what
their first meeting would be, what
she should say to him, and what he
would think of her.

work compel tbem to take long, tiresome drives oveT rough roads, exposed to all conditions of weather, are
in constant danger of losing their
health. The extreme heat of summer or tho piercing winds of winter
sup their strength, the kidneys become diseased or rheumatism sets in.
What is needed to withstand this
hardship is rich red blood���the pure
blood that Dr. Williams' Pink. Pills
alone can make. These pills are the
travellers never-failing friend. Concerning them Mr. George Dalpe, of
St. Eloi, Que., says:���"I am a grain
dealer and am obliged to mako frequent trips, sometimes very tiring.
I returned home from one of these
trips last summer verv much fatigued. I was overheated and tried to
cool and rest myself by lounging on
the verandah till late at night. I
caught cold and the next day I did
not feel at all well. I had a headache, painB in my stomach and was
very weak. I went to see a doctor
but he said I would be alright in a
day or so, so I started on another
trip. I had not gone far before I
felt very ill and had to return home
and go to bed. I bad chills, bead-
ache, pains in my stomach and kidneys. The doctor came to see me
and \v> said I was overworlted. He
treated me for several months but
instead of improving, I continually
grew worse. I wasted away almost
to a skeleton and really thought I
was going to die. One day my wife
returned from tlie village with a supply of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Sbe
urged me to take them as she said
they had been very highly recommended to her. I did so and bv the
time I had taken four boxes I felt
enough benefit to decide me to continue them and I took about a dozen
boxes. Tbey fully cured me and today I ain able to go about my work
without feeling fatigued."
Fatigue, on tbe lenst exertion is a
sign that the blood is poor. Replace
the bad blood with good blood and
labor will be a pleasure. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make pure, red
blood. That is why tbey cure anae- j

Americans Find Farming More Profitable   In  Canada.
William Redwood writes from Canada to The Western Daily Press, Bristol, England: Reference has been
made to the large number of people
coming into Canada from the States.
| This movement, we are told, does not
find its motive in any political or
religious condition; neither jb it because the American farmer ha3 failed
on the broad acres of the States.
On the contrary, the American farmer has prospered, and in many instances has become rich. Agricultural
pursuits in the United States have
been satisfactory and remiinerative.
The farmers who come into Canada
frorrwthe United States are, as a class,
very well-to-do. They have money.
They have made money and they want
t;i make more money.
The majority of them went into their
homesteads when land was cheap���
from $10 to $25 per acre. They have
made money by farming. Moreover,
the land that cost from $10 to $20 to
$25 per acre will now sell for $40, $100
or $150. The shrewd American farmer sees three things: He sees that it
is hard to make six per cent, net on
his land at present market values.
He sees that there is no reasonable,
prospect of the price of his land advancing materially in the next decade. It has reached the limit, and
he realizes that he must go to a new
country to secure farms for his sons.
Hr cun not do it in the home state.
With the money obtained from the
sale of 160 acres in the States the
farmer can go into Western Canada
and buy 640 acres, or even more, and
his Canadian land yields more in
crops per acre than the farm in the
States. It is no uncommon thing for
nn American to pay for his Canadian
farm and its improvements out of
the first crop, and besides, the value
per acre of his larger Canadian farm
is increasing nnd will continue to increase just as his American farm did
io "the past decade. In other words,
the American farmer can exchange
each acre of his land in the States
for from four to ten acres of more
productive and more profitable land
in Canada, and at the same time reap
th' rich harvest of the inevitable rise*
in the value of the lnnd. Thus he can
secure a large Canadian farm for him-
selt and one for each of his sons with
the money derived from the sale of
the home farm.
When Told That  Nervous  Exhaustion and  Prostration Are Thoroughly Cured By
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
What is more discouraging and disheartening than trying to cure nervous exhaustion and prostration by
means of ordinary treatments? Because you do not look sick and are
riot suffering great pain, and because
they cannot realize your feelings of
weakness, helplessness and discouragement, your friends fail to show
much sympathy for you, and most
doctors are-simply helpless in the face
of exhausted  nerves  .
Of course you need not expect Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food to work a miracle and cure you in a day or week
but you can be absolutely sure that
you will be benefited to at least some
extent bv every dose of this great restorative that is taken into the system.
The dreadful weakness and helplessness- which makes life miserable
to you and leads to all sorts of dark
forebodings, will gradually and certainly give way to strength nnd vigor
under this treatment, headaches will
disappear, your appetite will improve, you will sleep and rest better,
and you will find that day by dav
your nervous svstem is being built
up to health and strength.
Tbat Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is actually bringing about just sueh cures
is proven in thouca���tf_ of cases of
which records are kept on file in these
offices. The invigorating, upbuilding
influence of this great medicine will
surprise you if you will only persist

Franciscans  Desire to Remove Bodies
of Deceased Brethren.
Considerable discussion is being indulged in over the attempt of the
Franciscan fathers to obtain the bodies of their departed brethren, especially the saintly Brother Didace,
from the crypt of the Anglican Church
of St. James, Three Bivers, Que.
The opinions among the congregation of that church are divided on
th*; subject. Some of the members
favor ullowing the Franciscans to take
up the bodies on the terras which
they propose, that is, to restore the
churcfi to the state in which it now
is, and pay any damages tbat may
be considered reasonable. Others
again, object that their church should
not be invaded by the adherents of
any other creed, as the church was
granted to the Anglican rector by
King George.
Various comment is also indulged
in as to the reasons set up by C. G.
Ogden, who represents the church beiore tlie court in the matter. The fact
that the nhurch was given to the
Anglican Church by direct grant is
invoked against the interference of
the court. The opinion expressed by
many is that the grant from the King
does not exclude the church from
the jurisdiction of the courts of the
land which are established to administer the King's laws in this portion
of his Empire.
Some years ago, an attempt was
made by the Franciscans and some
of their friends to purchase the church
property. A price was offered and some
of tlie congregation considered it sufficiently high, but others thought that
if the Franciscans wanted the church
they should be prepared to pay more,
and the deal was never put through.
The renewal of the interest in the
matter has caused many visits to be
made to the crypt of late, to view the
place where the bodies lie. There is
a conflict of opinion on the identity
of the parties who were buried there.
The Franciscans state that so far as
they know nobody was ever buried
there since the church was forfeited
by the crown from their community,
while on the other hand it is said that
during the first years of British occupation some Anglicans were buried in
the crypt.
Drinking In Montreal.
The annual report of the Chief of
Police was published recently. That
the liquor habit has a very strong
bold on many is shown by the fact
that last year men arrested for this
offence numbered 2,234. The number
of women arrested for the same cause,
though much less, still footed up to
349. The total offences of all kinds
among men for whicli arrests were
made numbered 7,110. The women
irrested for various causes numbered
1,247. Continuing, the report says it
is absolutely necessary that the entire force shouid be strengthened. The
police and detectives recovered stol-
���u property last -year to the sum of
Not a Sparrow Falleth.
An amusing incident occurred in
Hie of the city churches on a recent
jundiiy morning, say The Brantford
lourier, In some manner an Kng-
ish spurrow got into the edifice. It
flitted about here and there, over the
leads of the congregation and the
.ingers in the choir gallery, causing
considerable dodging and amusement,
lust as the first hymn was drawing
to a close it lit on the head of one
of the male members of the choir,
who captured the songster and liberated it through a window. The choir
a few minutes later rendered an anthem, beginning "Not a spafrow falleth," and a broad smile passed over
the audience and caused not a few
audible titters. The anthem certainly
proved quite appropriate.

Toronto Newspapers Say Hundreds of
People Will  Welcome This Advice if Only Partly True
What will appear ..very interesting
to many people here is the article taken from a Toronto daily paper, giving a simple prescription as formulated by a noted authority, who
claims that he has found a positive
remedy to cure almost any case of
backache or kidney or bladder derangement, in the following simple
prescription, if taken before the stage
of Bright's disease:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
ounces. Shake well in a bottle and
take in teaspoonful doses after each
meal and again at bedtime.
A well known druggist, when asked
regarding this prescription, stated
that the ingredients are all harmless,
and can be obtained at a small cost
from any good prescription pharmacy
or the mixtur, would be put up if
asked to do so. He further stated
that while this prescription is often
prescribed in rheumatic afflictions
with splendid results, he could see
no reason why it would not be a
splendid remedy for kidney and urinary troubles and backache, as it has
a peculiar action upon the kidney
structure, cleansing thes�� most important organs and helping them to
sift and filter from the blood the foul
acids and waste matter which cause
sickness and suffering. Readers, who
suffer, can make no mistake in giving it a trial.

Large   Tracts   of   Land   Set   Aside   in
Western Provinces as Permanent
Forest Reserves
By the "Dominion Forest Reserves
Act" of 1906 a number of tracts of
wooded country throughout Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta were set
aside as permanent forest reserves.
Of these a number had previously
been set aside by order-iii-council*
the area of some were, however, lessened, while a few new ones were
added. Tlie total areas now so reserved in the different provinces are as
follows: Manitoba, 3,575 miles; Saskatchewan, 740 squnre miles; Alberta,
186 square miles; Britisli Columbia,
890 square miles.
In Manitoba there have been set
apart six reserves. The largest of
these is the Riding Mountain Forest
Reserve with un urea of 1,535 square
miles. A short distance to the north
is the Duck Mountain Forest Reserve
comprising some 1,250 squure miles;
and to the north-west of this reserve
is Porcupine Forest Reserve No. 1,
with an area of nearly 325 square
miles. West of Lake Manitoba is tbe
hake Manitoba West Forest Reserve
the area of which is nearly 250 square
miles. Part of the area covered by
the Turtle. Mountains is included in
the Turtle Mountain Reserve, with
an nrea of nearly 110 square miles. A
pnrt of the sand hill country ..southeast of Brandon has also been set
ipart ns a forest reserve, and within
this experimental work in forest
planting has been done; tlie area of
the Sprucewoods Forest Reserve, as
it is called,  is  110 square miles.
In Saskatchewan there are four re-
���erves. .Of these Porcupine Reserve
*.o. 2, the largest, adjoins Porcupine
Reserve No. 1; it has an area of 360
iquare miles. In the Moose Mountain
iistrict, north of Areola, the Moose
Mountain Forest Reserve, of some 160
���qunre miles in aren, bus been created. The Beaver Hills Forest Reserve
in the Beaver Hills, west of Yorkton.
���overs two townships (ranges 9 arid
10, Township 26); nrea 72 square
���niles. South-east of Prinze Albert is
'The Pines" Forest Reserve, cover-
ng 145 square miles.
In Alberta there are but three reserves. The largest is the Cooking
Lake Forest Reserve, east of Edmonton; its area is 114 square miles.
Right down in tlie south-east corner
of the province, having the international boundary line as its southern
limit, while its west-em limit is three
miles enst of the fifth meridian,-a
township and a half of land Iras been
formed into the Kootenay Lakes For-
ist Reserve. Another small reserve.
the Cypress Hills Forest- Reserve
consists of half a township (the south
hall of Township 8, Range 3. west of
the fourth meridian).
All the forest reserves in Britisli
Columbia arc within the railway belt,
i. e. the strip of country twenty miles
on each side of the C.P.R., ceded by
the province to the Dominion. These-
���eservos are eight in number. The
lames and areas are as follows:
Long Lake Forest Reserve, a short
distance south-west of Kamloops, 190
iquare miles; Monte Hills Forest
Reserve, a few miles' east of the Long
Lake reserve, area 106 square miles;
Martin Mountain Forest Reserve, a
unall trnct of 18 square miles lying
iust west of Bolean River; Niskon-
lith Forest Reserve, lying west of
Lake Niskonlith, with an area of
nbout 125 square miles; Tranquille
Forest Reserve, an area of 149 square
miles in the Tranquille plateau, north
past of Kamloops Lnke; Hat Creek
Forest Reserve, around the headwaters of Hat Creek, with an area of
206 square miles; Donald Forest Reserve, adjoining the C.P.R. on the

More Than 70 Years Married
What is the longest time that a
married couple have lived* together
ancient churchyard of Perranzabuloe,
in Cornwall, gives particulars of Philip and Grace Mitchell, of that parish, who died, one in 1862, the other
four years later. Each wns a hundred years of age, and they "lived together in wedlock for more than 70
years." It is probable that this record will take a good deal of beating.
