Geo.-A.-Cox,- President of the  Canada Life Assurance Company, at  that Institution's annual meeting. lie  pointed out that sinco the company's  inception it has paid out to policyholders'and their heirs over %27,000,-  000. Such.a fact gives some idea of  the vast benefits that result from life  insurance. Over $95,500,000 of  assurances are now curried by the  company.  During 3 903 the new business paid  for amounted to well over $10,000,-  000, a gratifying advance even 'upon  1902, itself a record year in the company's history. Tho assets of the  company increased notably during tho  year, and now ' stand at well over  $27,000,000. In making up its policy reserves the company again employed the most stringent valuation  basis of any old-established life company on the American continent. Over and above even these strong, reserves the surplus on policyholders'  account is more than $1,860,000.  ���I  f- i , ' i* '  Tlie C^nBcdaL Life  Assurance Comp;  ABOUT SEALING WAX.

When  a mother     finds it necessary  to  give -her little  one medicine      she  cannot be too careful as to the remedy employed.    The so-called "soothing"   medicines  always   contain   poisonous opiates,  and these should never be given  to  a child.  Strong drugs  and harsh  purgatives  should also  be  avoided.       An      ideal  medicine      for  young children  is Baby's' Own    Tablets,   which     cure  all  the  minor     ills  of childhood, and the mother has tho  guarantee of one of the foremost analysts of  Canada     that this medicine  contains  no  opiate.     Milton L.   Iler-  eey,     M.     A.   Sc,      demonstrator in  Chemistry,   McGill   University     says:  ���"I hereby certify that I have made  * careful    analysis   of  Baby's      Own  Tablets which I personally purchased  In  a    drug   store in     Montreal,  and  laid analysis has failed to d'etect tho  presence.of any opiate or narcotic in  "���hem."

We have .linen hearing a good deal  about Japanese vessels lately, and  we are, perhaps, fated to hear much  morciabout them in the near, future.  The observant reader will have noted that, at the end of the name of  every ship occur cither the tonrhinar  tion kan or ma.ru, and he may have  been; puzzled to know -what they  meant. For all practical purposes  they have come to be the equivalents  of our "H.M.S." and "S.S.", and. in  accordance with Japanese usage,  come after instead of before the.title  of the vessel "Ivan" is a Chinese  ���word, meaning "war. vessel," and is  attached only to .the. ships of -the  Emperor's fleet; "maru"'literally  means "round," and oven'a'Japanese cannot tell you how it came to  be aprlled to merchant vessels.  Youiip, man, beware of the girl "who  Is too lazy to return your kisses.  The Hindoos from time immemorial  have possessed lac and were accusr  tomedj to use ' it for sealing manuscripts long before it was known in  Europe. It was first imported ' from  the cast-into Venice and then into  Spain, in which' country scaling wax  became the object of a considerable  trade with 'other countries under tho  name of Spanish wax. .-If shellac bo  compounded into sealing wax immediately after it has been separated  by fusion from tho palest qualities of  stick or seed lac, it then forms a  hotter and less brittle article than  when the shellac is fused a second  time.  Hence sealing wax prepared in the  East' Indies deserves a preference over what can bo made in other countries, where the lac is not indigenous. Shellac can be restored in  some degree however to a plastic and  tenacious state by, melting it with  a very small portion of gum. thus  or parafin wax. Tho palest shellac  should bo selected for bright-colored  scaling wax, tho dark kind being reserved for black.  The following formula may be used  for making rod sealing wax:��� Take  four pounds of shellac, , one pound of  Venice turpentine, and three pounds  of vermilion. Melt the lac in a copper pan suspended over a clear char7  coal fire, then. add ' the turpentine  slowly to it, and soon afterwards add  the vermilion, stirring briskly all the  time, of mixing with a rod in either  hand. -   , ��' <        >  In forming the round sticks of  scaling wax a certain portion of the  mass should be "weighed while it is  ductile, divided into the desired number of pieces, and then rolled out  upon a warm marble slab by means  of a smooth wooden block "like that  used by apothecaries for rolling a  mass of pills. The oval and square  sticks of sealing wax arc cast in  molds with the oval compound in a  state of fusion. The marks of the  lines of junction of the mould box  may be afterwards removed by holding the sticks over a clear fire or  passing them over a blue gas llame.  Marble sealing wax is made by  mixing together two, three, or morn  colored kinds .while they are in a  scmi-fiuid state. From the viscidity  of the several portions their incorporation is left incomplete, so as to  produce  the  appearance   of  marbling.

That  A newspaper woman went out to a  Colorado ranch to rest and recuperate and her experience with tho food  problem is worth recounting.  "The woman at "the ranch was preeminently the worst housekeeper I  have ever known,���poor soul, and  poor me!  "I simply had to have food good  nnd plenty of it for 1 had broken  down from overwork7 and was so  weak 1 could not sit over one hour  at a time. I knew J could not get  well unless I secured food I could  easily digest and that would supply  the greatest amount of  nourishment.  "One day I obtained permission to  go through tho pantry and see what  I could find.' Among other things I  came across a package of Grape-  Nuts which ,I had heard of but never  tried.     I read the description on  tho  STORM IN" THE ROCKIES.  The  Thunder  Roar  Worse     Than  of a Battle.  the  If you have never seen a mountain  thunderstorm at an elevation of 7,-.  000 feet or more, you have missed  an experience that will add groy hairs  to your head.  Here is the story of a storm among  nature's massive sentinels that is described by an easterner upon whom  it left a lasting impression:  "To mc, a thunderstorm back East  held no special terrors, and frequently I have been out in such a demonstration without feeling any especial  nervousness.  "Up here on the Rocky Mountains  things are different, and I confess  now to live in an .awful, abject terror of a thunderstorm, especially at  night in my tent. I suffer this terror nothwithstanding tho fact that  so far the storms have In every instance except one gone: around or  beneath us without ' ever raining  enough to wet the ground. But it  is the 'going around and beneath'  that gets into my nerves.' In the  first place, imagine what it is, to be  14- miles nearer a rip-roaring thunderstorm than one is 'back home."  There you  have occasional flashes   of  ing teeth counted five distinct thunderstorms come up to the edge of  the plateau on which my tent stands  and^ each time go through with an  electrical performance- that would  give Tom Ed'ison a dumbs ague, and  through it all not a cupful of water  fell on my tent. ���        .

Owners  who cannut provide, proper food for  their dogs and take care of them  should be compelled to either kill  them or give them to someone who  will look after them'.  Those owning cattle should not  be allowed to let them wander at  will.

Fire  He Will Soon Leave Atlin, But Not  The District���He Spoke In  Glowing Terms of Our Faithful Nigrht-Watchman.  We regret, as also does everyone,  that our Fire Chief, Mr. Rosselli,  will shortly leave Atlin, that is,  the town of Atlin, as we understand  "Rosy" intends to go "Mining".  As a result, Mr. Rosselli has notified the Council of the Board of  Trade that he would have to resign.  Too much cannot be said in praise  of our Fire Chief whose energy and  efficient work have on several occasions averted what might have  resulted in a terrible conflagration,  and the citizens have much to thank  him for, especially when it is considered that his services were always voluntary.  In referring to the work of the  Fire Department, Mr. Rosselli offered a few suggestions for perfecting the alarm system and also mentioned tnat the  Tiritish American  1.

By tho time the days were beginning to length again in 1857 people  had almost ceased to think of tho  Crimea and all its terrible lessons  to the nation, no one dreamed of the  more diearfful storm now lowering on  the far East, and in part occasioned  by eastern misconception of England's strength in tho Crimea. Even  in India, where the. first, low ' inut-  terings of thunder had already been  heard, some strange madness lulled  the English to a perilous sense of  security nnd blinded'them to the  handwriting blazing an the wall be-  foio them.  At home people went on their usual comfortable half-hearted way,  thinking, in spite of their recent rude  awakening from dreams of universal  ' Peace, that the mad .race for wealth  was not again to be interrupted, but  that every man was to sit in the  shadow--of--his own shop-front and  cnt the fruit of pale factory-hands'  drudgery, untroubled, ,Pcoplo< grumbled impartially ot everything o\er  their breakfast newspapers, reconstructing or destroying'the, British  Constitution or propping up the venerable fabric according to the several mandates of their'several ^Journals, but not dreaming of more war.  Ono night at tho end of January,  Philip Randal, now a fine, well-sot  up lad, with bright, keen eyes and a  healthy brown face, found himself,  very smart in his ball uniform, at  a large military ball, trying very  hard to look bored, but in reality  full of enjoyment, lie liked dancing  and ladies' society, and was. fresh  to gnycties of this kind. He wished  tho deficiency in ladies had been on  tho other side, but then, as so many,  of those gold laced, stalwai t warriors lounging languidly against  walls were too vain, too lazy, or  too clumsy to dance, it did not mat-  - ter much, slnco no lady is ever ' too  tired',\ too bored, or ,too vain to  dance," so he might have his 'share' of  partners,  ineligible as ho was.  He thought of his little sister    at  ��� home, .when he   saw so many  .fresh  ,. girl-faces  in' the  brilliantxwhirl   ��� of  dancers,  bright   '��� as    rolling sunset-  - clouds '��� turning before him" to'tho accompaniment of love-laden waltz  music-on a line string band.  There are- people ' who "despise  waltz-music; ..have they over been  young ? ever danced? ever flung  themselves like swimmers upon'those  bright waves of melody, and stayed  only by tho pressure of ono young  hand upon another young , waist,  floated far away into ideal regions,  rising and falling in spirit -with the  ebb and flow of the music ? Besides  that pootry of motion which quivers-  bo strongly through waltz music  that it is pain to sit stilJ at its  sound, it has all the tenderness, the  sadness, ' tho -iniinito.- unconscious  longing, the ethereal exaltation of  youthful   love.   Young people     listen   lently      and   . lifted    his     eyebrow;  The more he thought of it the more  impossible her position seemed. How-  could that dainty blossom-like creature dance with such rough follows  as her cousin, Roger Pluminer, oven  if dancing wore in vogue in that set?  and by what possible door could she  bo admitted to more refined circles?  It had been better, he sometimes  thought, if the child had been tnught  dairy and housework in place of  Mangnall's Questions, French, and  piano-playing; her hands would in  that caso have been rougher, her susceptibilities blunter, her face not  less sweet, and her heart as pure;  Roger Plummcr and young editions  of Mr. Chccseman would not 'then  have jarred, upon'her, she would then  have no moio thought of quorrolling  willi her place in life than a flower  does.  "A violet by a mossy, stone half hidden from tho eye."  She would have blossomed sweetly,  and as sweetly faded, untroub'ed and  unnoticed, in her place. It never  struck him that Jessie's exquisite  grace and refinement were as native  to her as the perfume to the violet,  and widely different from Miss Blush-  ford's thin and spurious veneer of  history and arithmetic, her feeble'  pencil drawings, ��� piano-strummings,  and petty proprieties o"f speech and  manner. When he^,took stock of the  pretty young- faces present and observed the ways of their owners, he  felt that Jessie would do herself no  discredit among them, he was not  sure that'many could surpass her.  That' one of those young faces surpassed not only Jessie's but. every  other in tho .room, he was perfectly  sure. He watched the slight young  figure belonging to that flower-face,"  as it glided through the mazes of  the waltz; with a deepening glow in  his dark gray, eyes, and a strange  new fearful joy thrilled him .when  her soft floating drapery swept "him  in a sudden surge, of ���lhe v dance. A.  friend spoke'-to him, unheard "smiled  at " his absorbed earnest gaze;-- and  passed on.       . ^ ..  "How are you, Randal.?", said.'a  hussar captain, sauntering up -to him  later on,', but Philip; continued . to  gaze at the surging ticl'e, of waltzers,  grave, rapt, unconscious, until' the  question .was repeated, and;the hussar, languidly- smiling, laid a hand'  on the "lad's .shoulder. *   -*  "Eh? oh? How" are 'you,' Med-'  way ?" he exclaimed, starting- and  flushing. "I didn't hear you come  up.'"     . ",   .  'V  "Or'sec me,'too hard hit," he'returned, Ms beautiful bluo eyes full  of mirth.    "What is her, name?"  "Legion,"     he ,.   returned . quickly.  "Look, Med way,  there's not a leally  plain   or   ill-dressed   woman   in     the  room' to-night."  ��� Captain     Mod way   smiled - benevo-  to waltz music with >earning, lool<  ing into the vague rich future; old  people listen with yearning and recall   lhe  golden  past.  "I am never merry when 1 hoar  sweet music," might-be said of  Stratiss's^ or Gungl's waltzes. But  tho sadness seems plcasanter than  mirth1,   i  Philip listened, a pensive helight  irradiating and refining his fealuros,  which inclined to a square solidity,  and, leaning agninst his door-jamb,  Imagined  Jessie one  of that    bright  "Youthful enthusiasm,, fine thing,  refreshing," he said.- "Awfully hot  to-night, frightful crush, eh ? Don't  vou" dance."  "Rather,"  "Want a partner ?.'Know my cousin, Miss Maynard ? Girl 'in white  over   there?"  Philip tried to look indifferent and  not blush; "1���ah think I*have mot  Miss Maynard'," he stammered, "I  daresay she's forgotten; besides���ah���  her card will be full by this time."  "Oh,  come along,  look, 'she's sitt-  crowd   .of     flower-decked,, bojowellcd | ing down; introduce you  again," re-  Jadics,   whoso filmy  drapeiies  floated j plied   Captain   Mod way,   amusod     at'  mistilv  about'them and merged into | the subdued eagerness  on the     lad's  ono broad mats of color with    gold-   honest brown face.  laced scarlet and blue officers, with  tlie varied facings and ' decoration  distinguishing hussars and lancers,  artillery and engineers, cavalry and  Infantry, tho brilliance toned down  hero and there by the black-blot of a  civilian dross. What a different  blending of color some, of those present had seen at Balaclava, when tlie  heavy brigade wedged themselves  through the gray muss of Russian  troops I Sonio of the dancers present  had been sliu red the Russian gray  with English fCarlet.  Philip had left a two-dnys' old letter on his mantelpiece.  "Dear old Jppie," it began, "do  write oftcnor.

And  R-fcat was f.o become of Iter socially? into    which    sho'snnk smiling,  while  "Oh ! Mr. Randal is an old acquaintance," said the pretty" dark-  eyed girl, in a low voice with a subdued warble in it, on his introduction. "I am so sorry," she added  with genuine regret, "not one. dance  left. Unless���" she paused, looking  at her cousin.  ��� "Unless for once J'm magnanimous and givo up. No���lot me see,"  taking her card. "I'm down for  eleven, shall I substitute Mr. Randal's name, Ada ?"  "Thank you." Two gray eyes and  two dark ones rested gratfuUy upon  Claude Mouwuy'a face, Ada Maynard  floated away with her partner, and  Modway's well-built, well-carried fig-  uro passed slowly on. with'a certain  princely grace, leaving Philip full of  young  gratitude  and admiration.' =''  ���When : the band ,struck up the first  plaintive chords of No. 11, Philip  was already at Miss Maynard's side,  eager to claim7 her promise at the  first moment possible;  Two gliding steps and a turn, and  they were off, borne away and away  far from the prose of life, lost upon  the fairy sea of that enchanted  music, rising and falling upon the  bright waves of its yearning melody,  unconscious.' of physical being and  motion,'.-because of their very7 intensity and perfection, isolated in a  common beautitude, they-two'alone,-  each revolving round the other as a  sole centre and source of motion, as  two stars cast into space free of any  solar system, might do. At last, as  if by common consent, thoy paused  breathless, flushed, radiant, and  Philip guided his partner to a ' seat  beneath  a trophy of arms and flags,  ho leant against n Union Jnc-k above  her, and, opening her fan, used it  gently on her behalf.  "I sometimes wonder if there will  be dancing in Heaven," sighed Miss  Maynard, who was still in her teens.  "You dance so well, no wonder  tliat you enjoy it," he replied, won-  deilng at the glory of the rich dark  eyes, and the curled mazes of the  deep black hair nnd sweet curving of  the warm red lips, "L suppose you  dance a great deal ?"  "Oh ! no. I am only just, out.  This-"is only, my second ball. -'And  it will be the last, I am afraid."  "Surely, not. Why should it be  so ?"  "My last at home, I moan. Wo  go out to India, mother and 1, next  week," silio sighed.  Philip sighed too. "I am sorry,"  he said after a pause, "no more  chance for me of another dance with  you." He left off using the fan  and lookod dreamily at the bright  moving crowd with a sudden disenchantment. "Pool little butterfly,"  ho thought,' "you will be snapped up  the moment you land." Then she  would be a flower-hovering butterfly  no moie; but a gontle little' hearth  cricket, guarded and sheltered by  some strong man. Cheilshed or  crushed, he wondered, with a sudden  fear, as he turned and looked at the  slight fragile form and delicate face.  Could sorrow or suffering touch a  sliing so fair and tender ? The  thought was as preposterous ���-t,s painful. Why, she would fade at the  first touch of pain as a, rose-leaf  shrivels at the first breath of frost.  Sunshine ��� and soft airs should bo  hers  through  life. i  The- waltz music was still rising  and falling in golden wavelets,  Philip and his charming partner were  resting after, anotheiyturn in a palm-  shaded alcove talking the light nothings to which young voices an'Q mutually charmed eyes'lend enchanted  meaning, when a dark shadow ��� fell  upon them from an approaching, figure, 'and the repeated utterance of  his name at last aroused Philip's  attention. Ho took a paper handed  to him by a mysterious figui e which  glided swiftly away and was lost  in the crowd.. Miss Maynard turned her head, seeing his attention was  thus claimed and looked at the brilliant figures fitfully seen dancing between the palm-leaves for a, long1  space.     ' - ,.  When at length she turned her face  toward'Thilip, his head was resting  against . the draped flags, his face  had a bluish tint and his eyes the  amazed stare of a wounded animal.,.  "You 'are ill'!"- sh e/exclaimed;  "what can I*do ?" -  "No,._ vno;" ' he said, recollecting  himself, at" the sound of her -voice.  "But it-should have come 'before,  hours'- before: .J-,Too,;late -*now,;'ttoo  late."   "  ' ''--���:   .

He-had been dancing , and  fooling whilis his irinthw lav dying. -  His partner gazed after his retreating figure until it was lost in a  maze, of floating draperies and 'brilliant colors, and tho tears gradually  filled- her eyes. "Poor "fellow !" she  murmured, "poor boy ! Has he a'  sister'? or any ono tot"carc for him?  1 wish he had just said good-night."  Philip was able to obtain leave at  once, and before long he had torn  off his'- gay ball '.uniform, put on  plain clothes, sprung into the mail  train and was- rushing, swiftly  through the darkness, a'dreadful  terror tearing at his heart.  yphe train moved too slowly for  him, flying past fields and woods,  mansions, all covered up and hidden  rarms and hamlets, and park-girdlod  beneath the mirk as the future is  hidden beneath tho shadows of ,un-  coitainty, the throb-throb of the  engine beating time in his brain to  the melody of that last waltz.  It was a cold night,- he was glad  to draw his coat-collar round his  ears, and shivered in spite of his  thick rug. It was not 'so pleasant  to look out into tho blank depths  of surrounding night as into Ada  Maynard's  oyes.  ."AH the spirit deepl.v dawning in the  dark of ha/el eyes."  ine  that came to his mem-  sung    itcclf    to the    dance  was tho  oiy and  music. -;        .���-'���,  And amid all the. thoughts crowding upon him at this first shock of  bereaval, in the thousand memories,  tender, happy,, and sad, he still saw  tho bright face uplifted and heard  the clear voice speaking, saw tho  white muslin and blush-roses, the  rounded arms, rich dark hair, and  hazel eyes lit up by the dawning  spirit, and was glad in a way,  though his heart bled and hip conscious reproached him, as he  thought of things he had done and  left undone, and wondered why he  had not been more tender and duiti-  ful to her who had been more than  mother to -him. and had never been  harsh oven in reproof.  It was too late now; it always is  too late when we think of ��� these  things with vain regret sharpened by  the keen-edged pain of loss. ���  The engine throbbed on to tho  melody of that last love-burdened  waltz, stars passed in solemn' shining  til the gray wintry dawn paled  them and the chill eai th showed  ghostly and desolate in tho cold  light.  Tho sun had dispersed the mists  and was shining with cold radiance  like a smile which conceals a' sorrow, and the forenoon was well advanced when he reached Clceve, and  took a fly in his haste to roach the  Mill. It looked peaceful and pleasant when he drove up, the mill-  wheel was turning with its familiar  sound,, scattering the diamond spray  over the still sun-lit pool, the-���pig-  eons weie wheeling about with clanging wings and iridescent breasts,  the dogs barked cheerfully, a hen  loudly annouced that she had ' laid  an egg, snowdrops gleamed white in  tho garden-borders, the window-  panes sparkled in the sunshine, and  Philip's heart gave a joyful leap;  for 'the blinds were not down;, his  mother lived.  In a moment he wa.s in-the parlor,  whcie Jessie was dozing by the fire  after a long night of watching. She  sprang up with a stilled cry to meet  him, her eyes and mouth marked  with purple shadows and hor face  pale as the snow-drops in the garden.  "My kitten! My poor kitten!"  cried Philip, using his pet name for  hor. Then he sat down, drawing her  on to his knee and rocking her softly, to and fro as if she were again  the baby he had so often hushed to"  sleep, and Jessie cried as, any baby  might   have   done.  Cousin Jane had opened the door  softly and- shut it again. "Poor  things !" she said, '"let them have  their cry out, 'twill do them a power of good."  '.'But you must go to her. She has  been wanting you all .night," said  Jessie, suddenly starting "up.  Then Dr. Maulo and Cousin Jane  came in, the latter with red eyes  and haggard face, the former vigorously taking snuff and-swearing beneath his breath.  "Is there no hope, "doctor ?" Philip  asked;   "can nothing be done 1"  "Nothing, nothing, I tell you," he  roplicd, ��� testily, "keep quiet and  don't make a row. Not that 'anything matters to her," poor soul.  Confound you, Philip," he added, "I  ain't a man of science, though I  know moro than you think; ,_but all  the doctors in the world can't" help  her'now" !" - ,  * At this Mrs." Plummcr began to  cry again.and unnecessarily besought  Philip and Jessie to calm-themselves  though they were both unmoved in  their crushing.sorrow.  , "Now ma'am, stop thaX !" growled the doctor, who was himself shedding copious tears, "and take ( care  of that girl. Let,her/cry,, but make  Her eat'." -And he bustled'off,' promising to look in again, j "As "if, there  weren't plenty, of 'tiresome old wom--  en to spare in. the town, without  taking'.Mrs.-Meade," .he grumbled as>  hV.''wenty".r --, y ' y,, . ; "-,., J' ,*; .--  .'-'"She slipped ^on an'apple-paring on  the stone steps and hurt her spine,  poor '"dear," - explained .Mrs. Plummcr, when he was gane.

"But her mind is clear,  my dear. And' she wants you. Keep  up before her, there's a good lad,  do." '    -  , When Philip reached his 'mother's  room, -there ..was no more,need to  admonish him to be calm,.for the  sight before him effectually quieted  him, and the memory of that day-al-'.  ways lived in his mind as a solemn,  sweet time of rest and peace.
