Sib,— I see from your first issue
that Messrs. Churchiand und Hose
are applying to the Council to get
hold of the *'2,50O granled by the
Provincial Government last summer, for repairing the Serpentine
dyke. It is to lie hoped that the
Council will do nothing of the sort.
In fact it is not in their power to
do so. The money was granted
for a specific purpose, namely, the
repairing of the old dyke, and the
ratepayers and the Government
will have to be consulted before it
can lie used for any other purpose.
The way this dyke has been bungled
would disgrace a band of school
hoys and there ought to be no
more tinkering in the matter.
Furthermore, the Council aro pledged not to grant Council funds to
assist any dyking or flood-gale
schemes. There is only one way to
drain the Surrey flats, namely let
every flat-land rancher sell or
deed to the Council so much of
his land, and make a thorough job
of the dyke.
Yours truly,
YaIiK Roao.
A NUMliKB of interesting items
are crowded out this week,
Meiitioi) wus made in our lust
issue, that a human skull hud beenl
found on the furiii of W, 0, Jones,
about u mllii south of the Nicomekl
river, nn Halite Prattle road, and
thai the matter hud been repprled
lo Coroner I'it'lendrigh, who deemed
the matter deserving of n suiirchingj
Inquiry. Accordingly. Provincial
Consinblii Ficiicb wns detailed to
make a thorough  search for the!
body helongiijg to tin; skull, and
with Hint pud iu view proccedpd at
unco to the locality of the mystery.
On Saturday lust two search parties
were orgunizi'il, one of which,
bended by Constable French, sue-
cded in discovering the missing
body ut a distance of s.omowhut
more (bun a quarter of n mile from
iu phicc where the skull bud been
On Monday,, Coroner Pjttpndrigh,
Dr. Hoggs, and constables French I
and Listerarf|ved at Cloverdale by
train, nnd proceeded tq the ncenc!
of the tragedy, witnesses having 111-
ready been summoned to he if) attendance. At Ihe house of Mr. D.
Maokenzie, postmaster of Clover
Valley, u pause wus made, in qrderl
to cmp'unnel u jury, which consisted
of ThoB, Shannon, foreman, Albert 1
Milton, \\ ni. 15, Lefroy, L. Mussy,;
John Apmsttong, and John jloycs.;
At about I o'clock the coroner und |
his officers upil the jury proceeded
to whore the body hud heed found,
where Dr. Hoggs held, u postmortem
examination of the remains, ufter
which pll returned to tho Clover
Vulley post office, where, Corpner
I'ittcndrigh proceeded to take evidence bearing on the idonity of the
body und thu cuusp of death
On the north side of Mr. .loues'
ranch there isu rough trail through
the bush leading to a cabin owned
by a Mr, Brooks, but lalply occur
pieil by a man iiained Geo. True-
man. About thii.T-eic.hts of a mile
east on this trail und some twenty
feet off the trnil on tho north side
is the glace where, thp dead man
lay. Thp body wus perfectly concealed from any one passing along
the path by an embankment
oaujed by an ancient turn-up —
that is a knoll and corresponding
depression resulting from the upT
rooting of a large treo. The body
was in the depression with the
knoll between it nnd the trail.
The corpse presented a shocking
spectule, dogs or wild animals
having eaten the flesh entirely off
the left arm and leg, and disem-
bowelod the trunk, while the head.
as already stated, hud been carried
more than a quarter of a mile away.
Hoth hands, one arm and one log
were still intact, und the flesh in a
fair stnte of preservution. The
limbs were twisted every way by
the pulling and hauling nf the
animals that hud fed on the roinuins.
Following is Ihe substunce of the
evidence lukpn by the coroner, and
is ns full u report as our limited
space will permit of:
William C. Jones deposed that
on the iitb of April he and Mrs.
Jones hud visited an old clearing
on his ranch to procure some rusp-
berry nnd black currant hushes.
Mrs Jones hud unearthed u partially buried bone and wus shocked
when u human skull rolled out. He
examined Ihe skull, and in a few
minutes went home. Ho had then
nt once proceeded to Clover Vulley,
and informed Mr. Armstrong, Reeve
of Surrey, of the find. Formed no
idea at the time of who the skull
might belong to, On Saturday he
wns one of the search party that
hud found the body. Their attention had been directed to it by one
of two dogs that wero with them.
The dog remained behind at that
place and they went hack and made
the discovery, identified the body
ns that of John Hoy. Knew it by
the clothing, consisting of a blue
jumper and overalls, but more especially hy the nailed shoes whioh
were No. 7 and nearly new. Roy
was a native of Switzerland, about
oO years of age, and oft. Sin. in
height. Had been living with deponent up to about Christmas time
and had then left und went to live
with a man named Geo. Trueman,
who occupied a cabin one mile cast
of his (Jones) place. Owed Rov
$11, und hnd paid him. Couldn't
recollect dateof payment,but could
find out by inquiring at Blaine customs office, ns ho hnd entered n
loud of hny there two days after he
hnd puid Roy the money. Never

him the 111,
Here the coroner closed the evidence of Mr. Jones, und instructed
him to tukc measures to have the
exact date upon which he had paid
the money to Roy, as that was a
purliciilur of much consequence.
Anioini; ApppJ, sworn, was also one
of ihe search party.ttncl wus present
when the body was found. Viewed
body with the jury to-day, anil
recognized it by the clothing and
boots ns that of John Boy. luist

potatoes, and received 2,ri cents  in
payment,    Couldn't  jay if Hoy

Roy hnd stnted thut he bud worked

hut wouldn't be able to get bis pay
till 1st February. Bald Jones
owed him money also. Did. not
state amount In cither case. Said,
he wus going away soon to Langley
or Muplp Hidge. This wus on
the Nth of January lust.
Gpo. W. Hoggs deposed tha,t be
was a duly qualified medical practitioner for Province of Hriti-h
Columbia, On this 18th day of April
lie hii|| mude u port mortem ex.in.-,
illation of a body and detached
skull containing bruins. The
body wus headless und much
■mingled by wild beasts. The
upper and lower left side ol tbe
frump were nuilc of flesh . the right
limbs were in va,,,,! preservution.
Deuth had been recent, All the
soft purls of the body, except the
liver, were absent. Of the vertebra,
fourteen were there and tlm othel
ten were gone. In the collar of
the blup blouse wero two hole*,
that had the appearance "f having
been luadp by a bullet, but whi,-li
could not bp traced further, the,
bones of the, neck being gone, tn
the pockets were a piece oftnbotteo,
a knife, and q handkerchief. The
body was that of u healthy mun.
Am of opinion that death resulted,
from a bullet from behind, which
from tho position of the holes in
the collar would cause in.-t:iniiineinu
death. If the bones of the neek
were fractured, the skull would
more readily separate from the
body. Death had taken place; nor
bmgor ago than tl to 12 weeks.
At the close of the evidence ol
Dr. Hoggs, the inquest was adjoaii
ned, till Thursday, 18th. inst. at 11
o'clock a. in. then to be resumed a:
the Starr Hotel, Cloverdale,
Inquest re-opened at time and
place above stuted, I If thosp present on Monday. Dr. Boggs did not
attend. Gov. Moresby, of the Provincial Jail, was present and cross-
examined the witnesses.
Wm. C, Jones, recalled, was examined hy Mr. Moresby at length.
He suid Monday, January 14th, in
the forenoon, was the time he had
paid Roytheflt. Took no receipt;
owed him nothing more. Never
saw Roy alive afterwards. Saw
him frequently before this time,
, once or twice a week. When first
'saw skull didn't know Hoy was
missing. Next saw it when with
j the officer and search party. Examined it then, and on pbrenologi-
[Cnl grounds partly recognized it as
that of John Boy, Went with
search party along the Brook's
! trnil nnd found body by watching
the dogs. It might be ii steps off
the Brook's trail. Body wus lying
: in a mixed up state. Was along
the trail about three weeks ago
with the Brown brothers looking
for a bummer that Trueman hud
borrowed from them. The cabin
where Hoy and Trueman lived is
on the Brook's trail, about three-
quarters of a mile further east than
where the body was found Knew
the boots John Roy wore. Saw
; them before he wore them, nt tho
time he came from Maple Hidge
lust fall. Bought n puir like them
for myself from Rousseau in Westminster. I huve known Roy for 14
years. We never hud words; there
wus always a warm friendship between us. Got two letters for Hoy,
and ufter keeping them a while in
the expectation he was coming buck
I returned them to the printed address on the envelope. Never saw
Roy with a gun, he was not that
kind of n man. Trueman bad an
old Lancaster rifle he borrowed
from me. I got it from Mr. Mc-
Carty, in Westminster. Don't remember getting any bullets. Lent
the gun to Trueman to shoot grouse

Rudolph Lobmonn's visit tn Home iu
1857 led to thopaintcr'sintroduotion to
thu great pupal statosmuu, Cardinal Au-
tonelli.  Ho says:
Ilcf'oro nm sat that execrated statesman, "tho best bated man In Rome,"
in (ho most affable of moods. His
bronzed and somewhat oriental features
wero certainly far from handsonio, bat
tlmy wero full of character, energy, nnd.
according to some, cruelty, with tho
large, dark, piercing eyes overshadowed
by a heavy brow, tlio strong aquiline
nose and tho full sensual lips. Ho was
iu a talkative mood and spoko freely of
the difficulties that beset ins onerous
ministry, of tho position of tho papacy
becoming daily moro threatened through
tho ever increasing energy of its wicked
enemies, or what ho called "tho modern
spirits." "But," ho added, "history
teaches us that it has always triumphed
iu tho long run, and it will do so now."
Ho also told mo that tho worldly interests of the brothers Antonulli had novor
been separated j that they possessed all
their worldly goods iu common, ono
brother being director of tlio Banca Ro-
mana; one, thoGonte Oregon j, taking
care of their vast possessions in tho Pontine marshes, a third being syudaco of
Rome aud thu youngest being employed
iu diplomatic missions by tho secretary
of state.
During a short rest ho showed me,
with evident pride, over his ologaut
apartment, furnished with all tho latest
modern comforts. Rut tho crowning climax was tho bedroom, combining with
tho solemnity and mystery of tbo abode
of a prince of the church all tho luxuries of the boudoir of a petite maitresse.
Tho walls, the curtains, as well as tho
hangings round the spacious four poster,
were of tho heaviest crimson damask,
looped up with enormous tassels.—Boston Herald.

Tho Alleghunies tiro fertile to tho very

hickory, chestnut, maple, pine and other noble trees, in tho spring when thoy
aro budding forth, in the Kiimnier when
they aro iu the full bloom of maturity
and when tho laurel is iu blossom, and
in tho fall, whin the brilliant tints of
red and gold nml green and purple overwhelm one with a seuso of Mother Nature's testlu tic genius iu always harmonizing such a profusion of colors.
After all, it is the thoroughly satisfactory sport to be had with thu gamo
sheltered iu these mountains that most
endears them to tho man who has any
taste whatever for that sort of thing.
The conditions aro perfect. Tho gamo

By placing a brusscls and tapestry
carpet sido by side u clearness and
sharpness tiro noticed about tho brussels
carpet whioh tiro absent from tho tapestry. In tho hitter thoro is u mistinesH
about tho colors, and tho pattern lacks
that sharpness and delicacy which characterize tho former. This is duo to the
process of manufacture. A brussels is n
yarn dyed, and a tapestry may bo described as a printed fabric, but tho printing is done upon tho yarn beforo tho
process of weaving.
Tho whole method of manufacture ia
most ingenious. Iu the making of a live
frame brussels no fewer than 1,280 ends
of faeo yarns nre required for tho weaving of ono piece of standard quality,
each frame consisting of 2ufJ bobbins,
and y.Ml ends ouly can como to thu faco
at oaoh pick of tho pattern. Therefore
1,024 ends of yarn aro hidden in tho
body of tho fabric. There aro rotiuy
qualities of tapestry, but in tho production of tho standard quality only 210
ends of fuco yarn aro required, instead
of 1,280, which shows at onco that the
brussels carpet has the great advantage
of being thicker, softer and altogether a
moro durable cloth apart from other advantages which it possesses. There is a
limitation iu tho number of colors used
in a brussels. In tapestry there is no
limit. In the brussels tho whole of tho
colors used show a moro or less slripod
appearanco nt the back of thu fabric.
In a tapestry they do not, show at tho
back at all. This fact is made use of by
householders in purchasing carpets, this
being about tho ouly way thu average
person can tell tho difference between
them. In order to pass off tapestry as
brussels somo ingenious makers have
resorted to tho striping iu a regular
manner of the bucks of the former. Tho
stripy clTect in tho latter is broken and
irregular. A casual observation of tho
clearly defined character of a brussels
pattern should enable a buyer to distinguish between tho two fabrics,—Furnishers' Gazette.

It issnld that there Is ? 1,000,000 worth of

of considerable size, is lir> miles from the

The New South Wales and Victoria
gohlllehls are almost as old us those of
California, but ihe mammoth fields of
Western Australia have only been known
a few years. Western Australia comprises about one-third the entire island
and has an area of nearly l,0UO,<)0t)ti(|iiaro
miles. This vast territory, which Is 20
times us birgo ns England, was until n
few years ago regarded as a huge, worthless desert. Today It is famous as tho
mammoth goldfleld of the world, with
its 1,000,000 square miles of promising
territory. Along tho coast for 1,000 miles
there is a great belt of about 1150 miles In
breadth that Is very rich In yellow metal.
Tho first gold strike in Western Australia occurred at Khnberley in May, 1880,
This field has an area of 47,000 square
miles and is situated In the very northeastern comer of western Australia. Tho
Yllgarn field, with an area of 08,000 Bqunra
miles, wns opened in November, 1888, and
the 1*11 burnt Held of about the same extent first attracted attention In July, 1880,
About this time Albert K. Culvert, n
mining export who had pretty thoroughly
explored VYcstcru Australia, declared that
ho believed the entire colony would be
found rich in gold, und that home of the
greatest strikes would bo mado in the
southwestern part Close uoon tho heels
of his prediction came the opening of tho
Ash burton fields In the western part of
the colony, and thu rich Murclilson. Dunlins Hills, Coolgardlo nnd ftnmlondcrry
Btrlkos farther smith followed In quick
succession. Thousands of square miles
of promising territory are yet unexplored,
and It is quite iirnbablu that many other
valuable strikes will yet he made.
The year 1H1I4 witnessed a considerable
Increase over the world's gold output of
previous years. The United States still
holds first rank, with nn output of nearly
•941,000,000 ns compared with 185,060,000
In 1808, an advance of 11 per cent. The
chief gain bus been In Colorado, although
California shows a material increase. Australia takes second place, uud the gnlti of
1804 In that i.-iand is largely duo to the
remarkable development of tho Coolgardlo,
The total value of gold exported from
Western Australia lu I SIM \~ reported at
£787,100, Iu I8D8 £481,180 worth of gold

Tho enterprise of a merchant, of a oou*

crudity of tlm implements and tho stills
used in making turpentine and rosin
lend additional interest to this old industry, and the gypsylike habits of thu
turpentine ninkors add to their nigged,
illiterate charms.
Turpentine is the distilled gum of Ihe
pine trees of North and South t'uroliuu,
Alabama, Georgia nud pari of Florida.
The season begins when llm first spring
sup rises und ends when cold weather
checks the flow of tlm tree's blood. Ill
January or February tho "huokur,"
with bis keen bladed ax, begins thn
round which cuds with the season. J In

wide incision about six inches deep, a
wedge shaped cut in the tree, and he
bucks from 00 to loo boxes a day. The
first boxes are cut near the roots of llm
tree, and they tiro out us close together
to the height of n man's head as can be
done without killing tlm pine. The
hacker leaves a width of bark between
each box so as lo preserve (ho vitality of
the tree. When Ihe trees aro leased to
the turpentine makers, tlm terms of the
lease limit the number of boxes to oaoh
tree, but when it is desired to work the
pine to tho fullest extent tlm gashes are
carried up to a height of DO foot or mora
After the hacker conies tho mail who
"corners" tho boxes. This "corner" is
a cut iu tho top of ihe box to guide the
sup into tlio cavities left for the gum,
and tlio man who "works" thu "crop"
goes systematically from box to box,
Marling the sap anew with fresh incisions, working in this way 10,000 boxes
during the season. The sap or gum fills
tho boxes with a clear, sticky, thick
fluid, and this is removed by tho "dipper. " Scattered through tho woods are
barrels in which tho "dipper" deposits
tho gum, which is then hauled to tho
still. About a quart of sap is taken from
each box by means of tho trowel shaped
scoop used by tho dipper, and then tho
hacker comes along aud starts tho flow
afresh by wounding tho tree again. Tho
turpentine maker watches his men closely, for tho Tur Heels uro an easy going
people and require to bo urged by tho
"rider," who goes through the woods on
horseback examining tho crop, hurrying
tho dippers and backers and sending the
barreled gum to the still.
Tho first or "virgin" sap whioh flows
in tho spring makes the best rosin, uud
tho poorest is tho product of tho hardened gum which Is left on the sides of tho
boxes when tho sap "turns down" in
tho fall. This is removed by the
"scraper," who moves through tho
woods with his scraping tool, gathering
tho leavings.
Tho still is a largo copper vat hooded
with a close fitting cover in which is a
funnel which iu turn is connected with
the "worm" of tlio still. This worm
runs down into another vat near at
hand, and in this vat tlio fumes or vapor
of tho heated gum is distilled into turpentine. Fire under tho copper vat heats
tho gum, and tho volatile parts rise to
tho funnel, pass iuto tho still und are
condensed by tho water in tho second
vat into spirits of turpentine, Tho residuum left iu tho vat is the rosin of
commerce, which is passed through a
series of strainers and sioves to tho barrels, which aro mado on tho spot Tho
turpentine, howovcr, cannot bo barreled
so easily, for it will work through au
ordinary barrel. It is placed in white
pine barrels which have been coated Inside with several coats of strong, hut
glue until the barrel is Impervious to
tho subtle fluid.
The trees are worked for five or six
seasons, aud then tho turpentine maker
moves to another part of the woods. He
started iu North Carolina, crossed over
to South Carolina aud is still moving
toward tho gulf. Forest fires dostroy the
pines fastor than tho hacker does, for
the flames sweep over largo areas beforo
thoy dio out. Careful owners of turpentine woods havo thu pine struw and
fallen underbrush rukod away from their
trees beforo the season begins, and collecting this material iu somo safe spot
wait for a quiet day whon no wind will
cool tbo wot finger, and then they burn
tho rakings.
Negroes aro common laborers of tho
turpentine woods, but white men are
plentiful. They live in rough shanties
in tho woods, with tho stablos for tho
mules and horses near at hand. No
work is moro healthful than turpentine
making, for it is nil out of doors in tlio
depths of tho balmy, health giving pines,

and from sudden changes of weather.—

It falls to our lot this week to tell our
readers, and especially those who are not
blessed with perfect health,of one of the
greatest and simplest remedies of the
century. Personally we enjoy the very
lie-t ol health year in and year out, hut
among our friends is .1. L Myers, pro*
prietor of the Broadway Pharmacy, a
man who knows his business thoroughly, is entirely wedded to chemistry and
hygiene ami often "talks shop."" One
evening the conversation turned on new
discoveries in drugs.
lie told us that one of our mutual
friends, John Wynmlt, n locomotive engineer, owed his health to a new medicine known us Dr. Williams' 1'ink Tills,
and that Mrs. Lawler, the wife of Patrick
Lawler, cooper at tlio Tannin Kxtract
Work^, nud well-known iu this city, has
been raised by them from whai her
friends thought was her death bed.
Having had our attention called to the
matter so particularly we have since
found that everylwdv htii a good word
for I'ink  Pills, and especially were we
•ierested in the case Of Mrs. Lawler.
/.milly we called at her home and asked
her to' tell us if Pink Pills had really
done as much for her as had been told.
She said they had, and she would repeat the Incls to me.
Mrs. Lawler said : "Two years and a
half a no 1 was taken sick. 1 then lived
in Tacoma, and for live weeks was not
able to turn myself in bed. My husband and boys lifted me around and
eared lor me, and they scarcely hoped
lor my recovery. I could eat nothing,
was simply worn out.
"I sent for the I'ink Pills and 1 began
taking them. It said in the directions
that they should he taken  Immediately
afterdating,so late lightly* then took
the pills and iu two days was able to sit
up. In twoweeks I was up and around,
and was able to make the trip of 125
miles by cars to South Hend, where my
hushniiil luul gone to work.
"Since that time I have been well and
have done my own work, and now when
] feel worn out or ill I always take i'ink
Pills uud they help me nt once. I have
in the two years and a half used twenty-
one boxes of them, and we all use them
when we are feeling outof sorts. 1 have
recommended them to many of my
friends, and they always helped them,
and I can snv loull mothers that they
will Hnd them a good medicine to build
them up, cure headaches, dizziness and
tlie ills which so often beset them."
Mr. Lawler also stated that he hail
often taken Pink Pills. That he used to
he troubled with sick headache and dizziness in the morning, hut that Pink
Pills hud cured him.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain all
the elements necessary to give new life
and richness to the blood and restore
shuttered nerves. They are for sale by
all druggists or may be had by mail from
Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y., for 61) cents per box, or
six boxes fcr ♦B.M.

And Hob Will Not (in Out of Night* With
the liny* Any More.
Ho had married tho tfirl of his heart,
and shu was nil his fancy painted her,
and more, leu. and he should have been
as happy as a clam at high water, hut
he wasn't. Somehow be had got in with
tho old fast si t and took to spending his
evenings nwny from home, running
around town with the boys.
His wife remonstrated, made herself
charming aud agreeable, bnt failed to
keep him at home iu the society of herself aud their friends Things wero going from had to worse when she suddenly hit on a scheme to recall him to
t )uo night ho was particularly request-
til to ctiuiu home curly. He, as usual,
failed to comply, and it was midnight
(viien ho hurried up to his steps, opened
the door with his latchkey and found
his home a blaze of light and filled with
a large company. He was met by his
best man of a year before, who, iu full
evening dress, hurried him up stairs.
".lump into your dress suit, Bob Tho
minister is here to marry you over again.
".Marry me over again?" gasped Bob,
blinking about in the light. "What do
yon mean?"
"Oh, it's n custom of his to visit
each couple he marries on tho anniversary of their wedding day, and, after
asking a lot of questions, to read thu
vows over and have them respond. He
thinks it's a good idea, und so do wo

When Bob entered tho pur lor, ho looked like anything but a happy bridegroom. He wns shumefuced und worried, but when he saw Nellie, ns fair
and lovely ns she had looked at their
nuptials, he braced up, aud in tl few
minutes was listening to the "I charge
ye" of tho minister and feeling very
much as If it wi re solemn us a funeral.
Then came congratulations and presents and social merrymaking, and when
the company left Bob told them that he
would begin a new honeymoon that
should last ns long as he lived.
Aud ho kept his word. He says that
if young married people could keep
their anniversaries iu that manlier they
would not forget the obligations binding upon them, and hu gives his Nellie
credit for having a long head as well as
a loyal heart.—Detroit Free Press.

A Yorkshire farmer, having a horse
to sell at a fair, sold it to nil army con- j
tractor. Meeting him nt tho same fair
the following year, the nrmy buyer walked up to the farmer and said indignantly: "Thu hurso I bought of yon wns a
thorough fraud. It was no nso for tho
army." Tho dealer was nowise abashed,
hut replied, "Well, try 'imfort'uavyl"

Concrete ricrrt For llridgea.
Concrete has been used by the Chicago,
Rock Island and Pacific railway for the
piers of a bridge five spans across the Kcd
river. These piers were made by first siuk-
log at the situ of each a caisson or box of
wood :\:l by Ul feet in size through tlmsimdy
bottom to rock, which was easily done by
weighting the caisson and then pumping
out the sand and gravel, previously loosened by means of a jet of water. These caissons were then filled with concrete made
of one part of Louisville cement, two parts
of sand and four parts of stone broken to
pass through a ring 8^ inches In diameter.
After the caisson was filled a mold of
two inch plank was mude of thu form of
the pier. At the bottom it was 20 feet 10
inches long and \\}{ feet wide, at the top it
was 8'feet 2 inches wide aud £l % feet long,
with semicircular ends. Inside these molds
concrete was placed composed of 400 pounds
of German portktud cement, 10 cubic feet
of sand and a cubic font of broken stone,
which was allowed to harden thoroughly.
The plank mold was then removed and the
surface covered with a mortar of equal
ports of purthmd cement and sharp sand.
The river could be forded nearly nil the

Square or spatulated fingers, in the science of palmistry, denote the philosophical

signify an artistic temperament, and verj
pointed digits are a sore sign of thu dreamy,

general quality und configuration of the
lines which cross the latter. The life line
running around the base of the thumb denotes long or short life, good oi-ill health,
according as it is long or short, clear and
unbroken or otherwise. The "heart line,"
running across thu palm nearest thebnse

possessor's emotional nature, also the kind
of love she will give and receive. This will
be enduring or temporary according to

In many ways the United States have educated the world In politics, nnd I, for one,

Wonder, then, that just now the
farming industry is nt low ebb;
that so far from being able to get a
fair profit upon investment and
risk alii decent wages fbr labor

himself gdlng to the wall, While the
more prosperous by close ecbtlomy

the producer of the traffic the
means of living ; the speculative
handler of farm produce, whose
aim is to buy so cheaply that he
cannot lose, while every favorable

that much unexpected profit, ull in

none; tho dealer in agricultural
implements, who with the socurity
of the farms, recognized everywhere
as tho best in existence, charges
usurous profits,
In our judgment the first thing
for the Patrons of Industry In this
Province to take hold of is the
handling of the produce of tbe
farms, for there certainly is a bad
leak there. If tbe association gets
strong enough, it should without
delay establish its own warehouses
at Westminster and elsewhere,
where produce not in immediate
use could be stored awaiting purchasers, while provision should be
made that owners should receive a
reasonable advance on account,
pending sale, By this means the
losses now often suffered by reason
of forced sale would be avoided,
and farmers would not be compelled
to return home without needed supplies because of inability to dispose of their produce at any price,

From tlie absurd mistakes sometimes made in the nepwsapers of

not return it. When the Blaine
officers came looking for Trueman
I showed them the way to the cabin
and asked them to look for my gun
and when they came back they told
me Trueman was gone, but the gun
was there, and that day or the next
day I went and got it. I believe
that was on 17th January. On the
16th January I met Trueman coming from Blaine.
Mr. Jones complained of illness,
and he was advised by the coroner
to get a cup of coffee, and meantime other witnesses would be examined.
Wm. Brown, sworn, said ho was
a farmer living on the Hall's Prairie
road about four miles from Cloverdale. Knew John Roy since lust
July, when he enme to work for
Mr. Jones. Last saw him alive on
the 14th January last On that
day he came to my place with an
order from Mr. Jones for #12 und
asked mo to cash it. 1 didn't like
the way it was drawn ami went
buck wilh Roy to Jones' house,
where I drew u note myself for $12
und Jones signed it. I then found
1 hud only $11 with me, and I
paid this over to Itoy who accepted
it in full payment of his claim
against Jones. Jonos and his wife
were present, and all seemed to be
satisfied. Roy talked ol going
away shortly, und seemed to be in
a hurry to get away. Don't
recollect Trueman being mentioned.
I first met Trileinun at comer of
Hall's Prairie road when he had
an axe on his shoulder, and asked
for work. Gave him a job of slushing an acre of my brother's land
for $12, whicli I paid him when
the work was done. Then bargained for three acres more for which
I was to give him ono coat and two
pairs of pants and #21 ill cash.
Trueman finished the contract, received his pay arid we parted good
friends. Trueman Went to the
Brooks place) and while there used
to talk lb Roy about working for
Jones for nothingi and finally induced Hoy tb go and live with him
in the Brooks cabin. Oh 16th January, Trueman came into my place
with his pants badly torn and asked for a needle to sew them Up. He
did not come by the Brooks trail,
but aroilnd the other way. True-
man had ori the good clothes he
got froth me; and after mending the
tear, we went to Blaine together.
Remember Trueman taking pains
to tell me Roy had gone away,
cursing the farmers, and saying he
would never Wbrk tor them again.
They separated on reaching Blaine,
and afterwards heard some men
pointing and saying; " There He is;
head him off;1' and I saw It was
Trueman; who Was .going lip towards the depot.' The constable
passed mb; but didn t head him off.
I never saw Trueman afterwards. Didn't knbw that he
carried firearms; but heard afterwards tHat he had fired at the
Blaine constable. Trueman had
no blankets. When he was chopping for me; I lent him quills to
sleep under. I got two letters for
Roy from the Clover Valley post
office, and gave them to Jones,
who after keeping them a while,
retomed them to thb address printed on thb envelope: Rdy Was
living with Trueman at the timb I
paid him thb $11: No anxiety was
felt about Rby when he did not
show up. Roy niust have had $25
or so with him. Nbver beard of
any troitblb between Jones and
Roy. Rby madb Jones' pluce bis
homei arid they appeared to be
the best of friends. Lent Trueman
a sledge Which he did nor return,
and after lib had left: I wbnt to
Brooks cabin to look for iti but did
not find It. Afterwards tnysblf
and my brother Hnd Jones Went in
on the trail to look for it, but did
not commence tiilnok until we bad
passed the place Ivherb thb body
was found, as It was nearer the
babln whbre Truemaii worked.
Found sledgb under a piece of bark.
William Jiffies; II years old, was
the next witness; This boy gave
clear evidcncl of which the following are themiiiii items : Knew Roy
for six ybarfi; he lived in their
house somMlmos and was good
friends with liis father und mother.
Never knew of any c|iiurrel between
them. Lust saw Roy on 15th January, on thb road opposite, Antoine
Appcl's barn. He was going up to
where he was living with George
Trueman. My father Was loading
hay in the barn to take to Blaine,
and did not see Roy that day. My
father had a rifle that he got from
Rlr. Ce'rty; und round bullets for it
[like one here shown him] The
riflle wns nt homo thediiy the skull
was found, but Truemah had it before. There were two rifles at home

Mrs. W. C. Jones was examined
