'Lardeau Gold Excitement.
Kaslo, B. C. is on a stampede;
wonderful, in fact astounding,finds
of quartz, "or rather nuggets with
a little quartz" have been made in
the Lardeau Duncan district, and
one miner, a Mr. Morgius, says he
has over $ioo,coo in sight; he
brought to Vancouver $500 in gold.
On Poplar Creek, about twenty
open cuts have been made, and all
show good  ore.
Terrible Accident.
I-Ianna, Wyo.—Au explosion of
firedamp in the Union Pacific Coal
Company's mine killed 234 men
and injured many others. Fire
started after explosion and added to
the horrors; there is fear of further
FIRE.
A blaze started in the log cabin,
occupied by the Dominion Telegraph employees, on the corner of
Second Street, on Thursday afternoon. ' *
V
The fire was well-handled by
the 'Atlin Fire Brigade and *very
little damage was done. The
engine was on the spot within five
minutes and in nine minutes 600
feet of hose was laid out and
Dr. Young, hosemau, was playing
ou,,the burning roof. Mr. E.
Rosselli handles the firemen remarkably well,'and is desirous of
doing better, hence his asking us
to publish the fast that' there will
be Fire Practice every Monday
evening at 8:30 p. m.
The regular^bntbty meeting of
the Atlin Distiict Board of, Trade
was held in tlie Court 100m' Thurs-
day evuimg, and was well attended.
The principal business  was  the
election  of a -President!   and  two
members of the, council, caused  by
resignations,   and   . the   following
were elected:    Mr) A.  C. 'Hirsch-
feld,   President; 'Messrs.   D.   Ross
t
and Capt. Hathorn as  members  of
the Council. f    ^ s
, The Board/expressed  its   legret
at Mr.   D. 'Ross's   resignation  as
Piesident and warmly congratulated
him on his past services.
Information Wanted.
If the Captain of "Scotia" would
post a notice 011 the black board at
the wharf, stating the hour the
"Scotia" would leave, it would
save a suffering public much trouble
and annoyance.
It is at present practically impossible to find out when the boat
will leave: even the agent, Mr. J.
Lipscombe, seems to be uninformed
by Capt. Lawrence, of the "Scotia."

' >.', 'y> =5-  Immortality.  - J. B. Remensnyder, Pastor St.  "  James' Lutheran Church.  If a man die, shall, he live again?-���  . [Job, xiv., 14. _       ,  'Every natural,    well-poised    person  holds  life to be  the    dearest    of all  treasures.     When, a   philosopher   like  Bchopenha'ucr argues against the' good  bf life we set him down as a pessimist.  ;Only the  morbid  person,  the  misanthrope, the    unhealthy    mind    lightly  values life.   Wrote John Stuart Mill:���  ' "The  soul  yearns "for  life"   And  said  Dr." Samuel Johnson :���"No wise man  will be contented to die if he  thinks  he is to  fall  into  annihilation."    But  ���vith this   passion  for life how  fearful  becomes     the     shadow   ,   of       death  ���which  palls   the  race   of  men 1 , Just  when the powers are ripest the thinker,  <���- ' the  genius,   the   empire   builder  must  idrop   his'  plans   and  retire   from   the  stage of'life.    Shall we wonder, then,  that from of old wise men should have^  asked Job's"- great question, "If a man'  die,  shall   he  live  again ?" 'And  that  '    great pagan, thinkers sought by natural  '.   p'roofs to construct a doctrine- of immortality ?    The strongest    of  these,  'perhaps,  was the historical  one���that  Mrawn from universal, belief. The Egyp-  - tians, in the fabled bird the phoenix,  rising.,from  its  own/ashes;  the  Ho-  < meric poems, with Asheron and the  realm of shades; theVHindu doctrine of  me'ten.psyckosis,\ the transmigration  0f souls, and thc^hymns of the Rig-  ITeda, the next' oldest book to* the  Bible in the-world, all teach an ex-  JsteBce beyond the grave. And are  atot, such* universal belief*. reflection*  ���f eternal truths ?, And do they not  point to objective "realities, just as'the  eye prophesies things to be seen and  the bird's wing points to a medium  Itted for- flight ? Hence wrote Victor  Hugo :���"My thirst for tlie infinite  proves *that my being is infinite. Winter is on my 'silvered head, but eternal spring is in, my heart."  The , philosophical argument, based  1 Upon'the indestructibility of any sample entity, hat <��lso been resorted to.  On this*.ground7" Plato held that "the  ���oul wasT imperishable, and immortal."  IfVnd, Kant,"v-,the - intellectual, giant .of  .modern dimes,, deduced the same * re-^  ��ult from the voice of conscience,which  - be called the "Practical Reason." The  ethical argument, drawn" from the incompleteness   and   inequality    and  in-'  < Justice "of   this   stage   of  being,    has  also been adduced.      . ._    '      _  '   /  And even science is not without its  proof.    For Professor    Tait,    in    his  Treatise on the    Unseen    Universe,"  shows  that the  modern  discovery  of ,  the  conservation    of    force���that    no j  particle" of force, amid  all  changes ,is  ��ver lost���indicates'the indissoluble nature of the soul:   So*the indestructibility  of  matter   and .the     mystery    of  jlecp, "twin sister of death," bring fur  ther corroborative proofs. \  Such  are  the  reasonings  by  which  .      men in all ages have sought to frame  i. Y n  theory   of   immortality  with  which  to break the lance of the grim tyrant,  death.   Addison has^thus strongly and  ' beautifully voiced this sentiment-:���  ijjlt must be so; Plato, thou   reasonest  well;  " jElse  whence  this  pleasing hope, this  r fond desire,  ,   TThis longing after immortality ?  "    Or whence this  secret  dread and forward horro.r  Ot falling into naught ?   Why shrinks*  the soul  Back, on herself and startles at destruc-  - tion ?  Tis the divinity that stirs within us;  - *Tis  heaven  itself -that points out an  hereafter %      ���  Knd intimates eternity" to man.  t  Yet what are theories.speculations and  philosophies when confronted with the  remorseless logic of facts? So,-with  all their arguments, a tone of inconsolable lament and subdued despair  characterizes ' the writings of the  ancients. "Happier never to have been  born." sing*! Sophocles, "than so soon  |o pass through the hapless gates of  Hades." And Hneckel's "Sleep of the  ��oul," Huxley's "Engless Sleep" and  Hume's "Leap Into the Dark" show  ��he same doubt and scepticism among  modern secular philosophers.  And this, then, is the uniqueness  and the glory of the Easter message.  It meets fact wilh fact. It proclaims  with a trumpet that rends the universal air :���"Christ has risen ! The  Son of God has burst the bars of the  grave ! The king of terrors is discrowned ! Jesus hath abolished death  and brought life "and immortality to  light !" This all men feel to be th^  most blessed and -significant fact of  history. It is the cornerstone of  Christianity. Well may Renan ad-n-.t  that this Easter message has revolutionized the world. Naturally and  rightfully, thinking men everywhere  rose up and questioned its credibility.  But Christ would have risen in vain  had not the resurrection been satisfactorily attested. And so the Church  formulated the evidence, and little by  little the world 1 came to accept the  Easter miracle as an indisputable historical fact And then the nightmare  of ages lifted. The Sun of Tnimor-  lalily rose to the zenith. A great inspiration uplifted humanity. The floodgates of historv were reversed. Rongji ...��� *-��r.afiwGfj    with    hope    and  gladness. Literature to��K on sunnier  moods. Art bloomed with lovelier  'onus. Cemeteries lost their horror  and became peaceful couches where  the loved pilgrims slept the "sleep  beautiful," to be wakened by the joyful trump of endless life. The 1 ace  had undergone a new creation  The resurrection of Jes,us is thus a  demonstration of immoitality. And of  '>ur personal immortality. For, as He  was made man for us, so wc triumph  >ver death in Him, our representative,  knd so is it a demonstration of our  personal resurrection. Immortality  and Resurrection���were ever such  twin  truths   heralded  as' these ?  And  uot without a divi"e inspiration has  the blessed Easten.Je been fixed by  the Church at the season when the  earth shakes off her winter's sleep;  when the birds come back and the  flowers .begin 'to bloom; when every  seed that falls into the ground and  dies, and rises again with a new body,  is a witness to us oi the resurrection  of Christ, ,and a witness to us that  some day life shall conquer death, light  con/juer darkness and joy conquer  grief in that realn of immortal being  where "there shall be no more death,  neither sorrow, nor crying, neither  shall there be any'more pain; for the  former things are passed away" (Rev.  xxi., 4). . m r,    \   .  ' Fortified, then, with this assuring  Easter faith, let us, when our summons comes to quit -these mortal  shores, make response with the tranquil mind of the Christian poet, Tennyson :���i.  'Sunset and  evening star !  ��� And one clear call for me.  -And may there be no moaning ��f tho  bar  When I put out to sea;  For though from out our bourne of  time and place  The flood may bear me far,  I hope to see my Pilot "face-to face  '   When I have crossed the bar.  From the Shepherd's Notebook.  .- The feet of every member of    the  flock should be trimmed before sent t��  pasture. -   - <  The best breed of. sheep is the one  that suits'both taste and requirements.  v'Liking'   induces    interest;.  interest  brings ' enthusiasm,,  and    enthusiasm  pays in sheep-raising.  -The shepherd that treats his sheep  like friends is the most successful in  their 'care.       "  A ram must be a typical specimen ol  the breed he represents in order to secure "results expected.  Pure,air and sunlight have a favorable''effect in the breeding of ewes.  Their quarters should be kept dry.  ���- Feeding a lot of rich-grain the first  .few days, before .weaning is a common mistake, and causes a good deal  of trouble, which often occurs both  to the ewe and the lamb.  If the ewe is weak at lambing time,  oatmeal is one of the best and most  strengthening foods. It is nourishing,  increases the "milk flow, and prevents-  bowel trouble in the offspring.  The special twine made for tying  wool should always be used, as unsuitable material is liable to interfere  with certain parts of the machinery  used in the separation of the wool.  A lamb that is plump and fat with-  'out undue forcing with heating foods  makes - the * best    growth.���American  Cultivator. *       *  , Killing Insect Pests.  In the destruction of insect pests the  remedies are designed to act in one or  two ways. In one way the poison is  taken into' the digestive tract, of the insect, and causes death., Th'is is done by  simply coating' the plant with some  poisonous substance , (such - as Paris  ���green), whichcis taken by the insect  with the food. -By the "other method  the food is not poisoned, as the material (such as kerosene emulsion) is  applied directly to the insect, and  causes death either by penetrating the  body directly or by closing the breathing pores. Many insects cannot be poisoned, as they feed upon the juices of  plants (by sucking), and do not eat the  external covering, but many of them  have soft bodies, so that they succumb  to treatment if the poison comes in  contact with their bodies���kerosene  emulsion usually proving fatal to them.  All of the aphides, or lice, feed by  sucking, as do also the true bugs, of  which the squash bug is an example.  For the chewing insects, such as canker worms, the poison should be evenly distributed over their iceding places,  ,and may he applied before they are  present, as in spraying for the codling  iiu-tli before the insect is hatched. For  sucking insects, it is useless to spray  the plant before the insect appears.  The cluei mmedy as a fungicide is the  Bordeaux mixture, made by dissolving s-.x pounds of copper sulphate in  skteeii gallons of hot water. In another vessel dissolve four pounds of  lime in six gallons of water. Pour the  lime water into the copper solution  slowly, stirring well, and then add  twenty gallons of cold water, and  spray. For biting insects use Paris  green, in the usual manner. For sucking insects use the kerosene emulsion,  made by shaving a pound of hard soap  and dissolving in a gallon of boiling  water. Remove from the file, and add  a gallon of kerosene, agitating or  churning for fifteen 'minutes, with tlie  sprayer, until a creamy substance is  formed. Then add fifteen or twenty  gallons of cold water. Kerosene will  not mix with water, but will form an  emulsion with soap and water.���Philadelphia Record.  ' Not Adapted to Melons.  An army officer sends the "Youth's  Companion" an account of an experience he had when he was on duty  along the Rio Grande. He put up  one night at a small town in Cameron  County at a time when- a session c-f the  court, had filled the'town with strangers  Some of the visitors were sitting on the  piazza of the bo.u ding-house after sup  per, and conversation turned upon, the  fertility of soils. A stranger fiom Starr  County, which is near Cameron, waited  his'turn and, then said:  , "Well, I reckon the most fertile piece  o' ground in Texa3 is up 'on Ed Jones's  ranch in old Starr.; The first time Ed  plants potatoes they grows like young  trees. Ed calculates on. how there is ���  sight o' vegetable energy going to w^ste.  So he-sends oftyfer some tomato plants  '-'and grafts 'cm 'on to the potato stock,  and grows the finest lot o' tomatoes  ,above end potatoes below you ever see."  Tlie Starr County man had thrown  <k>wn the gauntlet, and a Cameron maa  took it up.  . "Well," he said, "that reminds me ��'  Bill Dury's ranch down on the arroyo.  Bill is looking his ground over one day,  when the idea comes,''to him that it ii  just the spot to raise watermelon*. So  he gets some of the very best seed from  the Agricultural Department, and fertilizes all round permiscuous. '  "He plants Ave o. ��� six seeds' to each  mound. When they come up he pulla up  all but the healthiest one in each mound.  When this one puts out runners he cute  off all but the likeliest. Did any o' you  gents ever hear'o' watermelons getting  p. better ��tart than'" that? The vinee  Jeep' growing bigger V -bigger. The  young stalks was the sire o' yer wrist  an' kep' growing. But, gentlemen, Bill  never got any melons off them vines. Th��  trouble was this: he hadn't figured oa  the natural fertility of old Cameroa  County. His fertilizing caused the trou-  ,ble. ���" '      '.  "Them vlnea got to growing so ftwt  .and powerful they kep* a-dragging the  {young melons over the ground an* wore  .'em out,' plumb wore 'em to a frazzle.  The vines dragged wim o' tlie melon*  against stumps and craeked 'em, ��nf'an��  night some o'. the likeliest ones was  busted by tbm vines a-climbm* afenoa-ea.'  propping tihe melons, kerplunk, oa the  other aide.   Then Bill give up."

Edison Will "Rest"  Thomas A. Edison says he is tired and  intends -to drop industrial science for  two whole years and rest himself by taking up pure science and investigating the  thousand and one properties of metals  and chemicals that he has notes about in  his book. He doea not consider this a  strenuous vacation, but says: "AH I'm  going to do is what every pure scientist  does���the fellow who finds out the ao-  tions oi metals and chemicals under different conditions and in various combinations by experimenting, but who does not  apply the results industrially. Guided  by my notes, I'm going to mix things in  laboratory mortars and chemists' tubes  and what not, and watch for results.  That's all pure science does. It never  tfliinks things out, like industrial science.  It just blunders, stumbles against discoveries, while industrial science is the  result, in greater part, of concentrated  and consecutive thought. It will be fun,  and maybe .I'll find out something worth  while���who can tell? Anyway, I'm looking forward to a real good time."  , ' Drug Habits.      '.  It Is' a regrettable fact, says the  "Youth's' Companion," that nothing is  easier to fonrf tham'bad physical habits,  and nothing harder to break than such  habits' when they have been formed. For  this reason tlie watchful care of young  people during the habit-forming period,  of life should be Che duty of parents'and  guardians. ''      ;  1 Among these bad habits may be placed  those little tricks of self-medication that  ere so fatally easy to "fall into. Theie  comes, for,example, the first attack of  acne, an eruption of tho skin, to which  many young people ofr both sexes aro  'subject for a year or'two". It-is, of  couise, easier'to give a trial to some  drug 'than it is to enter upon a selfr  denying course of exercise and bathing,  fresh air, patience, and abstinence from  candy. The advertised drug may be  harmless, in which cose it is likely to do  no good. If it has some quickly potent  effect, it possesses properties that should  , leave it to the control of a trained physician who knows something of his patient before he writes a prescription.  Young people, fortunately, are likely  to.be good sleepers. When for any reason  they are not, they are also likely to be  more intolerant of the tedium of wake-"  ful hours than are their more disciplined  elders. Here again it is easy to experi-  'ment with someone of the many "quieting" medicines, so highly spoken of, so  "harmless." A cool sponging off, five  minutes' brisk exercise und a slowly  sipped cup of hot milk would be much  better, and would r pre vail eventually, if  not the1 very first night. Many a victim  of the morphine habit owes the'first impulse to the, self-prescribed quieting  doses of some well-disguised, far-distant  cousin of that valuable but much abused  and dangcious drug.     1  It is a well-known fact that alcohol is  the basis of many of the so-called tonics,  and is to be found in considerable quantities in some'of them. Whatever opinion one may hold of alcohol as a medicine, nothing can be said in'favor of allowing it to masquerade in unknown  quantities and doubtful quality in all  sorts'of medicines put up for self-doctoring. No more insidious plan for the  forming of a bad habit could- be devised.  If -one needs alcohol one's doctor will  know it, and how much and) what kind;  and the safe way is to go to him for a  prescription. W* have all heard of the  man who was .unwilling to wash in the  River"'Jordan 'because he expected that  a miracle would be performed. The Jordan is, for all of us' the formation of  clean, healthy, common-sense habits.  Then we shall not need miracles.  In' this connection the "Argonaut"  points out that the health department of-.  New York City has been investigating  the adulteration of drugs there with  startling results. Samples of phenacetin  were obtained from more than three hundred'drug stores. Less than one-fifth of  these were found to be pure. Some were  adulterated with greater or leas percentages of acetanalid, others were pure oce-  tanalid with no trace' of phenacetin' in  them. As phenacetin costs one dollar an  ounce, and acetanalid eighteen or twenty  'cents a pound, the incentive is apparent.  Samples 'of tinctures to the number of  two hundred and fifteen were also examined, and of these forty were found  to contain wood alcohol instead of the  real article. Wood alcohol is a poison,  and in time produces blindness, paralysis  and St. Vitus's dance. When examined,  the .dealers confessed that they had  bought the drugs from peddlers at from  one-quarter to one-half of''the market  price, without asking any questions. As  large .quantities of phenacetin are smuggled into the country, the presumption  is that the dealers were tiying to defraud  the government instead of their customers. The "Medical Journal," in cpm-  jmenting on the developments, justly says  "that it is appalling���almost incredible���  that four-fifths of the pharmacists in  question should be dishonest to the point  of endangering life for such a paltry gain  in dirty money." Undoubtedly tlie same  ,vicious practices, on the 'part of druggists, prevail in this city.  "Say, our backbone-) are like serial  stories, aren't bhey?" "Prove it."

Young men who wanted to  appear "knowing" and to get the reputation of being traveled without the trouble and expense of traveling, had their  friends wtio went abroad send them the  necessary pasters. Some even boldly  ���wrote to hotels in Switzerland, France  and London asking for the coveted bits  of paper. Then when they disfigured  their suit-cases with foreign labels they.  were delighted if every time they crossed  the ferry people read the evidences of  travel witlh ewe end expressed envy and  admiration in their eyes. Some even had  their different pieces of baggage varnished so that the labels would not come  off. Now, however, the doubting Thomases glance contemptuously at tho portable picture-galleries and say to their  companions: "PoohI that don't prove  anything. Likely as not he bought 'em.'  So now, says the New York "Press," the  real traveler, the ono to whom a trip  abroad is not the event of a lifetime but  an almost annual occurrence, tries to  keep his luggage as free from foreign  labels as possible in order that he may  not be confounded with the spurious article.

The oats killed kl  'almost entirely, but in a. few   'places*  where there' were  some  rocks,  there'  was some left.    The field    was    first  "planted to corn and well cared for, so-  that injured the quack some.   The next  year it was sown thickly to oats.  '    "Oats take a large amount of water *  from the soil, and are harvested in thfr  driest part of the year.   When the oats  .were taken off the ground was dry. I  ploughed this, and the ground, being:  so dry, ploughed easily, and I ploughed  deeper than before. There has be����  very little quack in that field since."

As the  tale runs, two young women of Sedgwick hired a livery horse with which to-  take a drive out into the country. Before the start was made the liveryman,  in answer to his patrons' inquiries as  to "the temper and disposition of the  hor6e, assured them that he would be  as gentle as a lamb if they kept the  rein away from his tail, while there  might be trouble if they didn't. The  young women returned in safety, and  when asked if the horse had misbehaved one of them replied : "Oh, no. There  was one little shower, but we had an  umbrella, and held it so that not a  drop touched the horse's tail." "And  that," concludes The Pantagraph, "explains the dazed look the liveryman  has been wearing for the past few  days."  Ar^J [oopteiqhtkd]  Set Her Free I  ?

It was already dii3k when Norma mado  her arrangements with the widow; but  the (hours seemed long that she spent  alone in her room, which was on the upper story, of., tihe cottage. The parlor  downstairs, which opened diiectly on to  the road, was also to be devoted to her  use: hut Norma was too much afraid of  an incursion from her landlady fiom the  kitchen behind, not to piefer the Safe  seclusion of,her bedioom. So she sat by  the window, looking out at the bare  trees in front, and at the chimneys of  Astley's 'home, which had been her home  that morning.  It /was past seven o'clock, and quite  daik, When her heait gave a gieafc leap  at the sight of a figuie m the road below', and, by tlie light of the one street  lamp in 'the lane she distinguished Astley, whose gait was easily leeognizable  on account of the slight limp which he  had not yet got rid of. v  He had just crossed tho stile which  led from the town, and vvas making for  the plantation. If she had had any doubt  as to wh'o he was, it would have been  dispelled when she saw linn take a key  fiom ,his .pocket and open ihe private  gate which led into the plantation.  He had gonei thiough, and vvas on the  point of closing the gate, when Noima  saw anoihei'man iun hastily across the  road, and entei ihe plantation in his  turn, not by ihe gate, 'but by scaling the  wall a little lower down.  Nonna tlncw open the window. Astley was locking the gate behind him:  the second man had disappeaied. She  had thoughts of calling oui to Astley, of  suiting him on his guaid; but she was  tfiiublful whcthei hei voice would cany  so far. The better plan seemed to be to  go out, to iun up the lane as far as the  gate, and to speak to him over the wall.  So she tinned, put on hei hat as she  ran downslaiis, and slipped out tof the  cottage.  By the time she i cached the gate, however, Astley had disappeaied, and there  vvas not a sound to be heard suggestive  of any human picsence- near.  Who was the second man?

Its mines have become world re-  . nowned and are capable of supplying all the miueial uecessaiy foi  its home market. There weie  3345 Shipping Mines in 1902 and  the wealth ciealed by lhcr mineial  .iudustry totals up to $189,728,538.  Placer mining, hydraulicing and  dredging in the Atlin, Cariboo and  Omiueca distiict will help ' to  swell the already enormous return.  In this distiict ihe outlook is very  t 1  satisfactory, and all the work done  up,to date only goes tq,prove that  "so far-v it has been confined lo  practically shallow diggings, whilst  at present it is conclusive that the  "pay" is in'lhe deepest ground, or  benches.    ,  The "Granary of the World" is  a title well earned by Canada, but  oiitside'its agricultural production  the natural resouiccs of the liahei-  ics, lumber and timber aie stupen-  duous. The fishery products alone  amount to nearly S3S,000,000, aud  the best whaling   region    in  the  1 world is in^the Hudson -Bay 'and  Arctic Ocean. Then the lumber;  British Columbia alone contains  the" greatest timber reserve in the  world. Canada today is second  to none in her national resources  and il is lo be hoped that she will  be well represented at the'St. Louis  Exposition and make a showing  that will prove the, statement.  The meeting, to be held tonight  at the Grand Hotel, will touch ou  matters of great importance directly  affecting the welfare of the" miner,  prospector, merchant,' professional  man and in fact all classes;  One of the' vital matters to be  discussed is the existing Placer  Act which has been.in force for  nearly forty years with but little  change; conditions^ are altered and  the laws as applied to s'hallow  diggings are not applicable to' deep  placets, hence the leason to demand remedial legislation. '  The question of Crown grants  will also be debated upon and it  is earnestly desired that, especially  those at present opposed to the  Crown granting of placer ground,  should be present in order that the  meeting may have an opportunity  of fairly and honestly airing its  opinions.  All are  welcome  whether   they  belong   lo  the Provincial -Mining  Association or not.    It is the duty  of every one to attend, in order to  make the meeting a representative  one;  every  one   will    have a fair  hearing aud much good may be  done for Atlin's future  prosperity.

Retelling lo our headline, we use  the term complex in preference to  the usual term refractor}' because  the latter term leads one to believe tliat ��� all values other than  gold aie neglected.     ,  In the 1 eduction or'subdivision  of complex 01 es, (which' as the  woid implies means'the subdivision'  of the complex or .various constituents contaiusd in the-ores,) we  aie desirous of concentrating these  vaiious oie bodies and separating  them iu order to make it possible  to realise ou all their individual  values; this is one ol the problems  befoic us today.  We arc aware that there are two  processes,  the combination of which  may revolutionize the treatment  of  base ores  whose  methods  demand  thought,  investigation and  experiment in oider to  make of the complex ores a paying proposition that  would  interest  the capitalist  and  especially the London capitalist.  The two  methods  which may  attain the desired end,' and   seem  to  be feasible from the  latest scientific  metallurgical     research    are    the  oil method of concentration,   which  gives'an   absolutely  clean concentrate;  aud   the   electro " magnetic  separator, which separates all the  metallic constituents and  thus  enhances the value of what was called  refractoiy 01 e.    Tihe   combination  of these two  methods  will we  believe'reduce      concentration    aud  separation back to simplicity.    The  oil(is  essentially  and  only a con-  ceutiator,    the    electro    magnetic  is a separator from a "concentrate at  a certain temperature.  ��� It is .evident to mining men  that  the problem  of .the future  is  the  efficient and    simple    manner   of  treating what, we   term  complex  ores; we have,-tried to  define the  difference between the term complex  and the term  refractory  aud preferring the latter we lecommend  it  to the thought of those  interested  and engaged in mining.  .   It is possible.that our reader may  consider this a little premature and  in advance of what they have been  accustomed to, but our reflections  of-gold mining all over the  world  lead us back to  our subject,  that  of Ihe reduction and subdivision of  the constituents ot complex ores*in  order that all the values contained  in the ores may be  treated and  realized      separately     and   thereby  obtaining   the  full   and  absolute  values therein contained.  <,  IMsmgzigii  and' Grape 'Rings ���  And All Kinds of Jewellery Manufactured on the Premises.

' The argument in I lie Gamey case  began yesterday morning. ��� Mr. Blake,  in a speech lasting lour and thrce-  .quartcr hours, wcnl carefully over Ihc  evidence, endeavoring to link together  circumstance afler cueuiiislance in .support of Mr. Gamcy's story, lie condemned in very strong language the  course   of  Mr.   Slrallon,   and   alluded  ,   ,to Prank Sullivan as a bold and h.ird-  >.    -cned sinner.    Mr. Johnston will ijegin  the   argument   for   ihc   defence   tins  morning. . '  When ihc proceedings opened in the  morning Mr.DuVernei.ioi .Mr. Gamey,  made the statement Unit the latter was  cmite willing oav into the coin I  the $1,200 demanded by the  court  if  the latter  would  gra.nl  him  '  protection, on he was willing to make  out a marked check payable lo/Frank  " Sullivan, from  whom  he had  received  , the money. ' He asked for a formal order, 'which,  however,   was  refused  by  the Chancellor, who   said   the    $1,200  1 would have to be paid in 'in the same  manner as the $1,500.   .  Mr. Blake then begjn his speech.  (He first considered tlie scope  of  the  , act. _ Instead of the House vindicating itself il had thought proper to cic-  , yolve thafduty upon the Commission.  [There was no doubt as lo the breadth  and scope of'the act, and it was a  source of satisfaction that so wide a  scope had been given.    All the matters  - gone into, he submitted, were   covered  '   by the act, but he raised the point as  - '  to whether it was competent for ihc  ' .Commission to make-, a report, or  ' simply to' report upon the evidence without making any fin ding.  iMr. Blake held that the Commission-  had power only to take * evidence.  [Under the statute the whole function  t>f the Commission was to take and  return the cvidcn.cc.Jth.cn the Legisli-"  ture might take -such action as it  deemed  proper.   - -   -  The Chancellor���"There is a strong  temptation on us lo give effect to that  view."  Kowevcr.Mr. Blake continued, if the  Conimlssioners thought it was their  'duty to go  beyond the evidence then  i-   he would consider what'such finding1;  inighl reasonably be.      He would first  ,   ".present thai portion of the case as to  'which   there   appeared   no   reasonable  'doubt.   . He would then deal with Ihc  matters that were open to question.  Mr. Blake.then took up the oeni-'  municalions relating lo the bargain.  'He read firsl the letter of Sept. io,  writ-en by Mr. Stratton. and' signed  by Mr. Gani.-y, and addressed to the  Premier- calling attention to the second line of the second paragraph: "I  have decided to give you my support."  iThat is what the Government wanted.  "I ask to be treated as if I had been."  elected to support your Government."  There is the price. An absolute bargain of purchase and sale. He was  elected to oppose the Government,  but if treated in such a way he would  support it. Then, there is the letter  of Oct. 27, sent to the Premier, to  ���the same effect. Mr Blake next look  iflp the letter of Jan. 28, The Globe  interview, and asked why that interview was _ given. The bye-elections  were coining on, and it was of advantage to get such a statement.  (But   why   not   publish   the   letters   of  - Sept.   10 and    Oct.  27?    Because  the  Ceople would see that Gamey was  ought, and it was necessary to tone  down ' what they desired to-effect.  'Nothing could be more misleading  than this paper. With the Premier  there is the lelter of Sept. 10, but  now it is said "touching a rumor"  about Gamcy's relations to the Government. What a solemn farce, when  the bargain was already made and the  guarantee in possession of the Premier. On those three documents there  can be no doubt about this branch oi  the case. It matters not who made  the approach.  This mat*-*r, Mr. Blake held, was  known to other members of the Government, for Mr. Stratton had said  that he had mentioned it to four members of the council before lhe_council  meeting, and afterwards mentioned it  to other members. "The bought and  sold note was found in the pigeonhole, all safely kept." Referring lo a  statement of Mr. Stratton that the  Minister? had taken the reports of  'Mr. Gamcy's change of attitude in a  jocular -.manner, -Mr. Blake said that,  while it might be a matter of' amusement ./amongst., the Ministers that a  man who was elected as ah opponent  of the Government should, under the  influence of a Minister of the Crown,  become an opponent of his party and  a . supporter of the Government,  to him it seemed a very grievous sin.  On January 27 Frank,Sullivan wires  Gamey. "Most important that you be  here," and on the following day Mr.  Hammond is, informed by Mr. Stratton that Gamey Is in town, and will  give an interview. He pointed out  that, there niust have been some connection between these circumstances.  Having read Carney's letter of February 7, saying that there was a row;  on, that it was/hard to satisfy his people, that he might have to resign, Mr.  Blake argued that*the X. Y;,Z. letter  of February ir was Mr. ��� Stratton's reply. He did not care whether the X.  y. Z. letter was given lo Mr. Ford or  %&?.  Stratton;  it an-4   .the  enclosure.  could not have come into cxis'lence  without that letter of February 7. The  letter and cue-:-sure say : ''No .resignation. -I phi going to stand by the" interview   Of Ji.    '  ry  2Q."  Another matter of great weight in  showing the bargain is Ihc interview of  January i;j. Mr. Stratton, according  to Dr. Chamberlain, upbraided Mr.  Gamey for the pari lie took in the recent bye-election in Perth. What  right had he to upbraid unles* there  vvas a bargain ? Mr. Gamey was obliged to apologise. Mr. Stratton  thought Gamey .played, him false, and  .would not allow him'to'do it again, and  wanted a public utterance. Tlie elections of Centre Bruce and North York  were coming on and he was determined  that Gamey should not act like that  again. The lei. us could not be produced, because "thai would make the  bargain too plain. Hence Mr. Stratton , determined, in the words of Mr.  Hammond, that he would try to gel an  interview from him. .He (hen read the  evidence of Mr. Hammond, who, he  said, seemed to give his evidence fairly. It appeared that after Gamey  signed Ihc interview Mr. Stratton wanted Mr. Hammond to st'iikc out a portion, and he refused. Would tin's have  been (forgery to strike out a portion  behind the signer's back ? Was this  the first lesson in forgery from the  Minister of the Crown ?   '  Having read the part of Mr. Hammond's evidence- in which he said Mr.  Stratton asked him if he could not forget some of the things connected wilh"  that interview, Mr. Blake asked if this  was the first Iesson,by that Minister in  perjury and subornation of evidence ?  In strong language he dcclaied that the  man who asked another lo do such a  thing would do it himself. Anyone  who would say:"Changc a document and  change your evidence to suit mc" would  change his own evidence, would swear  lie had not received money when he  had.. A Minister of the Crown forsooth,! Better send the King a copy  of this evidence, so that he "may see  what kind of a Minister he has !" lie  dare not deny il. Tliis, in his opinion, was,the most humiliating circumstance in the whole in\;cslii;alion���the  attempt to debauch a young man. - ft  was said that King Philip of Spain  kept a'department of assassination.  Tin's is something very like it���an attempt to kill truth aud uprightness. It  is bad ciio-ugh to do such things oneself, but it is infinitely worse to get  another to heh* you  Regarding the payment of money in  September he . [milled ,that there was  gieat difficulty in settling wh ther* it.  was on the oth, 10th or nth. But  in ai y event the statement of Mr.  Stratton as to a meeting on September 9 was absolutely upset by the  evidence of R. J. Armstrong that he  and Gamey were at tlie Exhibition  grounds. * As to ,thc nth the alibi  of Mr. Stratton is weak. Mr. Buckingham's statement showed that it was  quite possible with ten minutes here  and twenty there.to hand over the  money. It seems almost impossible  to solve the question whether it was  paid on the 9th, 10th or nth, further than that there was ample time  for Mr. Slrallon fo hand over the  money or some one else to do it for  him. The outcome is that the money  was there and ..btaincd as described.  The evidence of the cab drivers is  strongly corrobo-alive. The defence  spoke of bringing evidence in rebuttal, but as this was uol done it evidently could ,nol be done. ' t It was  very strange that with all this money  going and people who ne-- led it none  of it got home. He callc.! the attention of the court to Frank Sullivan's  extraordinary evidence that if anyone  kepi his eyes and cars open he could  pick up in the departments information which by means of some of the  legislators he could turn into money.  It is evidence of a man absolutely  reckless of truth. His absolute  shamclcssncss in giving testimony was  an outrage on decency. A bold,  hardened sinner. He would not give  the evidence as he did if the mailer  were only his own. Sullivan went  into "the box to protect his master,  Stratton, to shield, to make a case to  shield his master. Then there is the  absolute dishonesty of the man, for he  only wanted Gamey to be a friend of  the Government because of the use  he could make of him; his endorsation  as a member was worth money. His  untruthfulness and wickedness are unblushing and without remorse. He  seemed to smile when he (Blake) did  not know how a government should  be carried on or how a clerk could  pick up knowledge in the departments  which through a willing member of the  Legislature could   be  made use  of.  In all his' statements, Mr. Blake  went on, the witness was utterly and  absolutely untruthful. He made statements out of whole cloth. Mr. Blake  referred to the effrontery of the witness in making such a statement that  if one kept his eyes and cars open at  the Parliament buildings he could turn,  his information into money. He also  called the attention of the court to the  mass of contradictions between the  evidence of Frank Sullivan, and the  men at the piano factory, lie asked  the court to note the / ��-,:?cr'' >ancies,  between the evidence of Mr. Stratton  and Mr. Aylesworth, and Mr. Stratton and Mr. Hammond, also t.c statement by Mr. Cavers.' He called attention to the incontestable testimony  of Mr. Aylesworth and Mr. Hammond,  the circumstances of which showed  that it was correct, and which negatiyr  ed the statement made by Mr. Stratton. Mr. Blake referred to the letters of Frank Sullivan and others respecting concessions, and said there  was not a word- of remonstrance  against those, rank parasrlcs who were  allowed to batten and grow fat upon  the public without a word being said-  in depreciation of what they were doing- " ''-'.���'  "They consider that the position of a  Minister of the Crown should be a.vejy  honorable one, representing, as a Miri-  ' "jter does, the Sovereign of this world-  ��� ide empire.',It is'a high place, and a  high position begets a large r.csponsi-  'rilily.

BBYIEWINfi THE EVIDENCE.  IvIK:-JOHNSTON'S    PRESENTATION OF THE CA'SxD. '   ,'  Scores Blake's Address as a Political Extremist's Speech���Without  L Money the Correspondence, Interviews,   etc!,   are   all   Innocent.  Toronto. May 23. ��� The argument for ��� the" defence in the  Gamey case was presented yesterday  by .*Mr. Johnston." He had not  finished when d o'clock, ��� the  usual hour of adjournment, was reached, and stated that the mass of evidence was so great that he thought he  would require another hour. The  Chancellor remarked that as Mr. Blake  had been taking copious notes he evidently intended to reply. Mr. Blake'  said,,he thought that the usual custom  would be followed, but that he was in  the handf of the commission. The  court then adiourned, until 10 o'clock  this morning. ' Mr. Blake stated that  he expected he would speak for ar.  hour and a 'half.cand, on the supposition that Mr. Johnston,would take an  hour, would finish bcforc^lunchcpn.  '��� "Assassins, corrupters of morals,  liars, perjurers, suborners of perjury,  forger and teacher of forgery,'1-s-uch  such were the wordsToi an address .to  vou? Lordships and justifying a reason for finding a high ofheer of the  Slate guilty of a great crime."        ,  In these words Mr. E. F. B. Johnston, K.C., commenced his address for  the defence before the Gamey Commission yesterday.  "On behalf of those whom I represent, the Hon. J. R. Stratton and the  Government of the Frovince of Ontario, I would ask your Lordships' indulgence for a moment," and for only  one moment, to say one word in regard to the personal character of this  address. For five long hours my learned friend, who assumes in this investigation the role, of the people's protector, made a st.-ong partisan speech,  not to the court, but a speech which  manifestly was intended to form the  text of a great political party.a speech  more akin to a. political extremist than  in accordance with the high duty which  my learned friend has assumed, a  speech beginning with imprccation,con-  tinuing through a torrent of abuse  and ending in pravcr.  I utterly repudiate and resent such  language being applied to men in high  places unless the remarks are warranted by the evidence. "For. thirty  years the Government of tl-'s Province has had, and we claim to-day,  the confidence, of the people, rightly or  wrongly. For thirty years it has  been a matter of history that charges  along the same line have, been made  again and again. For thirty years  these charges have not been proved,  and it now remains to be seen whether  they will be proved  in this instance.  My desire, continued Mr, Johnston,  is to get at the truth. When this case  was removed from the political arena,  taken from the zeal and prejudices of  partisanship and placed in the hands of  your Lordships, it was done so as not  to allow politics lo interfere, but with  the idea of what the Judges would  say. what a calm judicial tribune,  would pronounce as a verdict. Il is  with that object that wc have been  sitting, it is the desire of faithful subjects of his Majesty in.lhc.Prpv-.ncc.it  is the object-of the resolution passed  in the House, the purpose for which  your Lordships have been appointed,  and that alone.  If the truth'is against me and my  clients, I should be content to accept  the finding of your Lordships-without'  the slightest uncharitable feeling or ungenerous remark towards my opponents. This is not a case that should  have the slightest political bias, and  if I can aid your Lordships in arriving at the truth I shall;.eel'that I have  performed my duty to the best of my  ability. I could say a great deal more,  but'personal respect for. my learned  friend, regard for his position at tho  Bar, regard for his age and great ability prevent me from enlarging on this.  I could not say less. .  The issue, Mr. Johnston continued, is.  grave and important, more. so  than the political aspect of parties concerned. Grave because a crime  charged   against a Minister^ of Stats  ana subversive 01 _au good government if such things can happen. Important because, if the charges arc  ���-true, the choice of the people is inler-  V-red with ; important because in this  /fe of imperfection it is essential that  the Ministers of'the Crown be absolutely clean. Even if Mr. Gamey or Mr.  Stratton has to suffer, il ought to be  the aim,of every good cilizen that the  suffering comes to the proper quarter.  Having described the ideal Minister  and member, he said such could not  be expected,-for'there never was'such  in history, but it is expected that 111cm-  - bers and Ministers should approach  that ideal as nearly as possible. He  continued that under our system the  member supporting the Government receives' the patronage of his riding.  That is illustrated very often in England, as well as in Canada. 'No matter, what 'the question, if there is a  motion of want of confidence the politician votes according lo his political  leanings. -In this connection he quoted Todd, Vol. J., second edition, pp.  616-17, as laying down the true relation  of members and constituents under  the party system.  Mr. Johnston then pointed out that  Gamey told Mc -irs. Martin and Bo wen  in the Walker House on September 7  that he was going lo support Ihc Government! This was befop" the alleged  ���payments. Mr. Blake pi t aside the  testimony as of no impoi lance, as  meaning nothing. It meant the whole,  case, as far as the 'position of his  (Blake's) client was concerned. Having reviewed the evidence of many witnesses to show Ilia 1 prior to September 10 Gamey intended to take an independent course, he filed a report ol  the Gore Bay mccling in February in  Gamcy's own <��� handwriting, in which  occurred the sentence :���" T. Robinson, a delegate from the county, look  the ground, that R. R.' Gamey had  promised during his 'campaign to take  an independent stand, and received  many Liberal votes' on account ot  that." This was not - contradicted,  though  Robinson was in court  ready  to be called if ncccssarj. lie then  read the letter lo Mr. Ross that  'Gamey had come lo the conclusion not  to support the Ross Governm nt, but  .that he would best 'act in the interest  of his constituents and new Ontario  by supporting the Administration.  There is the motive. It was shown  that prior to his election,, and after  by the evidence of Conmee and his  bedfellows in the Walker, Martin and  Bowcn, down to the meeting on February i6,at Gore Bay, he was always  indifferent-. In fact, it was strange that  prior to September 10 his position towards the Government was stronger  than after he got-the, money,^'asv he  alleged.  The man from Manitoulin, Mr. Johnston said, held out the hand and took  the bribe- . and, having got it, one  would.have expected a strong support  of the Government. But,- quite the re-  ,verse, the, first .thing, he did .was  lo ��� attend - a Conservative - caucus on  September" 10, with the money in his  pocket.  The Chancellor���If he had the  money it must have been before Sept.  10.  Mr. Johnston���Exactly. If- he had  the money, and T think we can show,  if he had" it at all, he must have had  it then. It docs not devolve on- us  to show where the money came from,  as long as Ave can prove it did not  come from us.  Mr. Jolinston went on to show that  after Gamey had received a bribe to  support the Government he weakened  in his so-called allegiance. After get-  ing on Sept. 10 or' 11 $3,000 he' goes  to North Perth in January and makes  speeches in favor of Mr. Whitney.  That had nothing to do with his plot  or scheme. When he gave The  Globe interview, and, as he says got  $1,000, he afterwards changes the interview in such a way that it nnght  have been signed by any member of  the Opposition. Every bribe he got  seemed to drive him farther away from  the Government, according to his own  story. Before a dollar had been paid  him, he had been stronger in his allegiance to the Liberal party than  after he had stretched out* his hand  and had it filled.      - . *'  "Place that," said Mr. Johnston, "before any Bench of Judges in the land  and ask them to prono-ince J. R.  Stralton a criminal. No wonder my  learned friend had to resort to invocation as well as imprecation."  Dealing with the protest, Mr. Johnston first pointed out that .fter early  in June Mr. -Stratton had withdrawn  altogether from any action in respect to protests, and there was no  evidence lo show that Mr. Stratton  had intervened in any protest. The  matter was entirely in the hands erf'  Mr. Grant and Mr. Bristol, and there  was nothing to show that Mr. Stratton acted in respect to Manitoulin in  any way. Mr. Johnston read from  the evidence of Mr. R.A. Grant, showing how Grant and Bristol got together to saw off the petitions, ard  Mr. Bristol himself suggested sawing off Manitoulin against South  Wcntworth.  Mr. Jolinston -pointed out that Mr.  Blak. in quoting this part of the evidence made'it, appear that it was  through the Government that the protest was dismissed. Is that a fair  comment,on what took place, or is  it similar to other methods which have  been adopted to substantiate the proof?  He did not blame Mr. Blake, but Mr.  Blakd had stated that certain' things  took place which ir. fact did not take  place, done by someone perhaps for  him in collecting the evidence and giving a wholly erroneous impression.  He then took up the letter of October 27, copy of September 10, mailed  by Gamey to the Premier from Gore  Bay, and'pointed out that the only  changes were with raspect to the point  on which Gamey's whole case depends.  One addition said that he'would support the Government "if you have  a reasonable majority when the House  meets." and. again, "if. you have a r���ca.  s"onable majority." These two additions, were exactly whal he st-id before  the election, during the summer, and  the 'whole "time up to the meeting of  the House,' namely, thai he would sup- ,  port any Government in power for the  benefit of Manitoulin. No .stronger  evidence of innocence could.be found  from a'multitude of witnesses. Strong-  ' er evidence could not be found of -lie  care, honesty and truthfulness of the_  Administration of the Province and of  , the depth of lying and deception lo  which  Gamey had :,-mk.    ���  In all this correspondence, asked  Mr. Johnston, where was there anything that" would i-.dicate the giving  of a^bribe ? Here was this man, seek-''  ing for 'ni'eans to convict the Government of bribery, hatching a plot, writing and writing and writing, and yet  all through this correspondence be  could not place his finger on a single  line,and say that, it suggested a bribe.  The Globe interview ' was exactly  ��� along the, lines of Gamcy's previous  statements for six or seven months.  After Gamey had made the charges  that interview became a weak, puny  thing that any member of the Opposition might sign. It was not worth  one thousand cents.' let alone one  thousand dollars. Why 'were the  changes made ? Because, he said, he  saw his friends on the, island as to how  far he could go. Mr. Jolinston pointed out that one change was "any"  Government. Again, wc have "Mani-  . toiilin my politics." Docs that look like  -paying or the delivery of the goods ?  Another'change was from support to  "independent" suppprt, from the Government's development policy 'to "any  good" development policy. These wero  all, changes precisely to the effect that  , Gamey had always spoken, nanielyr  that he .wanted, in the interests of the  island, to support whatever Government was in power, and not the Ross ,  Government.  Where,   then,  was 'the    motive    for  ���buying'Gr..icy ?    Gamcy's  motive for  supporting   the   Govcrnmeni   was ' infinitely stronger than a monetary one, *  ��� the bene ,. of the island, if he had am-   ���  hition-for a political  future.      It was  under   a   charge    of  conspiracy - that  the  Jones-Gamcy  correspondence got '  'in,   but  it  has, no    weight    with, the  criminal charge now under inquiry,1 because the".question of agency was not  proved.   j Jones   scarcely  knew  Sullivan, * and' there   is   no   common   hand  guiding Ihem..    - There could be none  "except    Mr. Stratton, but there .is not  a particle of proof of it.-     The-charge  'of conspiracy against the Government *  utterly  fails.      His learned  friend had  asked why the Ministers did n t appear  before   the    commission     and    purge"  themselves. Purge themselves fromi  wnat ? The insinuations ot his honorable friend ? The reckless statements of'  Gamey in the House ? ' They might  as well call, the Premier of this Province into the' box to answer the howling of some cur as he passed a gateway. They subpoenaed all the Ministers and could have called them if  they  chose. > '   r  ;*.

Montreal, May 18.���(Special.)���The  case of George Robertson, of 3.92  James street, this city, is looked upon by those interested in medical  matters as one of the most interesting on record. Mr. Robertson was a.  pullcrcc from Dropsy and was so bad  that tapping was resorted to. Dodd's  Kidney Pills cured him.  Interviewed regarding .his cure,   Mr.  Robertson said: "I was troubled with  Dropsy and ' Rheumatism for live  years. I was a total wreck before I  started to use Dodd's Kidney Pills.  Before I got out of bed in the morning I could hardly put my feet on the  floor, they were swollen so much from  Dropsy. ,  "My .arms used to swell at times so  that I could not put my coat on. Biy-  forc I had taken two boxes of Dodd's  Kidney Pills I felt greatly relieved.  Seven boxes cured me completely. I  had also Lumbago,-hut since I used  Dood's Kidney Pills I don't know  what it is to be,sick."  Dropsy, Lumbago and Klioumatism  are all caused by diseased Kidneys.

At this time a lady th great  .wealth, the Countess Z., who lived not  far from the main highway .between  Budapest and Vienna, received a polite  note one morning, informing her that  twelve gentlemen would dine with her at  midnight. She understood what it meant  It was impossible to summon help, and  well she knew ihat every appioach to  the castle would he guarded, to prevent  communication. In this dilemma she  made ready for her uninvited guests.  At midnight up rode an armed band,  twelve men in all. Immediately the  gate of the outer court and the entrance  door were thrown wide, as if for tlie  most honored and welcome guests. The  countess stood at the entrance to receive  them, richly dressed. She bade the chief  and his men a gracious welcome, gave  ordi'is that their horses he caied for,  and then, taking the arm of her guest,  led tlio way to the dining-hall. Here a  goodly feast was spi ead, and all the gold  and silver plate of the castle was lavishly displayed.  Tho leader of the robber band started  buck in surprise; but, recovering his self-  possession, he seated himself beside his  charming hostess, who engaged him in  merry talk of the gay world at Vienna)  with which they were both'familiar. At  -length, when the feast was nearly ended,  the chief took out his watch and said:  "Countess, the happiest moments of my  life have always been the shortest. I  have another'engagement this night. Bod  as I am, none ever appealed to my honor  in vain. You have received me as a gentleman, and I shall take my departure ag  one. 'As for you, my men," he said, looking sternly round with hand on his., pistol, "I charge you to take nothing from  this house. He who disobeys me dies  that instant."  ��� The chief then asked for pen and paper, and .wrote some words upon a sheet,  which he handed to his hostess.' "This,  madam, will serve to protect you in future. You have but to aliow.it, and it  will save* you from any molestation or,  less." -  The name of the robber chief was.af-  terward known. He was an impoverished cadet of one of the noblest families  in Hungary. His fate was sad enough;  he was captured a-few months after the  incident which has been related here, and  ended his .life at the hands of the'common hangman. v   <  A Novel as a Real-Estate  Boomer.  A Mystery Explained.:  Louisville papers -are authority r for  tho. statement that "Jhs. Wiggs of  tlie , Cabbage Patch" not only brought  to Cabbage Patch residents the  gladdest, lic-icst Christinas their  pinched -lives 'had ever known, but dias  stalled a tide of immigration toward  this sulnub of Louisville. Before Miss  Alice Caldwell Ilegan, now Mrs. Cale  Young Rice, intioduced Mrs. Wiggs to  her thousands of friends, the Cabbage'  Patch was held as undesirable a living  spot as Kentucky could show. Now, all  Louisville takes its guests to see' the  Oalbbage Patch and to discover, if possible, Mrs. Wiggs, Miss JHazy, Lovey  Mary, and all the rest; while every traveler through Kentucky stops off at  Louisville on the same errand, and kodak enthusiasts haunt the region at all  hours. Nor is this all. The Cabbage  Pateh has become���^fnsliionable is hardly  the woid���popular among the lower circles of Louisville's people; and one landowner lias let contracts for twenty-two  new cottages to meet the demands of  would-be Cabbage Patchitcs. , These new  cottages will be ready to accommodate  the spring rush, which the appearance  of "Lovey Mary" in book-form is expected to nieienae.  Tins new picture of life among the  lowly promises to have as great a success as its predecessor, for those who  'smiled at tlie quaint sayings of the  widowed Mrs. Wiggs and the amusing  antics of her children will be gla"d to get  another glimpse of them. The new1  stoiy, by the way, is not a sequel, -although several other familiar characters  again appear in its pages. Here is a  characteristic hit of advice taken at random, which showe that the sympathetic  Cabhage Patch philosopher has lost none  of her original charm:-       . t  "li you want to be cheerful, Jus set  yer mind on it an' do it. Can't none of  us help what "traits we start out in life  with, but welkin help what we end up  with. .When things first got to goin'  wrong with me, I says: 'O Lord, what-  ;,Jever, comes, keep me from gittin' sour I'  It wasn't fer my own sake,I ast it���some  people'peara to enjoy bcin' low-sperrited  ���it was fer the childem an' Mr.. Wiggs.  - Since then I've made it a practice to put  all my worries down in the bottom of  my heart, then set on the lid an* smile.  . . . The way, to git cheerful is to  smile when you feel bad, to" think about  somebody else'8 headache when yer owe  is 'most 'bustin', to keep on believin' the  sun is a-slhinin' when tihe clouds-is thick  enough to, cut. No thin' helps you to it  like bhinkin' more about other folks than  about yerself." - ',  Tommy���Papa,   what   makes   you  bald?

Napanee, Ont., April 27.���(Special).  ���That Dodd's Kidney Pills are one  of the greatest boons ever conferred  on suffering womankind is the experience of Mrs: John C. Huffman of this  place. For the benefit of her sister  women she has given the following  statement for publication:  "1 had been troubled for about sis  yeais with Kidney Disease and the  pain was so great I could not stand  it. I could not entertain any company.  "One night when I was feeling miserable, I read some wonderful cures  by Dodd's Kidney Pills and I decided  to try them. The first box brought an  improvement and by the time I had  taken six boxes I was completely  cured.  "I can recommend Dodd's Kidney  Pills to any person suffering from  Kidney Disease and I make this statement hoping it will help other young  ladies ol married women." i  Saving Labor at The Hub:  "They're .busy���I'll, call. you." That  ta the exasperating sentence usually  heard on the telephone when one Is In"  a" great (hurry to x"get" the person-at  the other end of the line. The man  who uses the' telephone often knows  that the phrase "I'll call ,you" means  nothing���that it'ls never used seriously,  ���and after waiting a few minutes he  calls' again.

They have a different method In Boston, as a visitor'to that city discovered  a few days' ago. He called up a business house and was told, "The line Is  busy; ring off I" It was a sharp, rasping voice, and the stranger connected  It at once with a small cigarette smoking boy. "I don't believe thay'ra buay  at all," he said to the peoole near him.  "I'll,try again."  "Give me No. 4000, please."  "The line Is busy; ring off."  "How do you "  "Th�� line is busy; ring off."  "Well, try them again, and���'*  -Tihe line is busy; ring off."  - There  was never a change 1�� VtM  tone,\ never a word more or less, and  the stranger saw In his mind's eye bow  the Impertinent youngster sat repeating over and over again the reason-  destroying sentence.  After a Ave minutes' waiting: He  made another attempt/to reach bis  friend  A woman's voice answered and asked  the regulation question, and In a few  seconds the* rasping voice was heard  again, "The line Is tousy; ring off."  "Say! are you sure there Is "  "The line Is busy; ring off."  Then he hung up the receiver, and  when he gained the ear of the central  office again he asked: "Can that boy  say anything* besides 'The line is busy;  ring off'?" ,,  "Yes, If It's fixed right.* That's the  graphophone by which we save work.  What number?"     ���  Incident of the Plague in  the Philippines.  A correspondent of the "Medical Record"    says    that    in    December , last  a   padro   in a   northern   province    of;i  Luzon told 'his congregation that he h'ad'  had a vision in which he had seen San-  Roque, the pation saint against cholera,  descending into   a  well,- and that San  Roque had informed; linn that whoever  drank or bathed in  the waters of this-  well would have no cholera, that he (San  Roque) thought that his people had been,  chastened enough, and-had come back to*  protect them.    This announcement was-  made immediately after _the pliest had  heard that cholera no longer existed in  the province.  ^Immediately following the  announcement of the priest, the people <  of the vicinity  flocked  to  the  well  by  hundieds, the news rapidly spread, and-'  within a week a crowd of thousands had, ���  collected, many coining from distant pro���'  vinces.and camping in the fields.   It was',  a sight never to he forgotten to see hun-'  dreds of    men,  women    and    children,. -  stripped stark naked, standing about the  well and having its i waters poured over  them, while others were  drinking the  water and carrying it away  in bottles.'  Tlie conditions were present for. a most  virulent outhieak, for many of tflic faith-,  ful came from districts; in which cholera  still existed, and the well was certain to-  become ultimately infected, and prove a  focus from  which  the dise.ise would be  transmitted in all directions. ' Argument  was useless with ohe pilgrims, and it be- /  came -necessary  for   the  authorities  to -  close the well by foicp  and place it un-.  der an armed guard���for the people firmly believed that San^Eoque would stattnp  out cholera   if ' they   only  did   as  the-  priest told tlhem. >,   r   ^.   _  1  I  'I  E2/"11  If  �����  .*���  'M  *   i  Manners for Musical At Homes-  41  m  Don't, when asking anyone, toeing 'or 'i  play, casually 'close the piano while so' >" '  doing.

A Sad Story.  The ohell-flsh that grow In the waters of the Pacific on the California  coast are a poor lot, and repeated attempts have been made to Improve  their quality. Oysters from the East  have been planted In San Francisco  Bay, but they don't thrive. Lobsters  also have been carried there. The first  lot of young lobsters that went out  quarreled so violently In their tanks  that they arrived in a deplorable state  of dismemberment. Many were dead,  and the bottoms of the tanks were  strewed deep with claws. "We can  better that," said the fish commissioners; so when they shipped another lot (at a cost of ten thousand dollats) they put wooden  wedges in trie bip claws of all tha  young lobsters, so that they could not  fight They arrived in good order,  were put into the bay, and not one of  them was ever seen alive again.   After  ..       TT _. .      ,���  ���_���   -t  _,���.    a  while it  was  remembered   that  the  Mis.  nuflman_^only^oiw of many | wedffeg had nQt ^ taken ^ o�� the  lobsters' claws before they were turned  loose. Consequently they could not  shut their claws; consequently they  could not get their living; conssquently  they starved. Does anyone know a  sadder story than that?  Zangwill's Physiognomy.  ZangwiO, in common  with   the late-  Canadian Premier,   Sir  John  A.  Mae*  donald, is curiously like Lord Beacons-,  field   in   feature,   though without   his  blandness and polish.    Lean, dark, sallow, with pronounced Jewish characteristics, his face in its rugged power* is  far more distinguished than any mere  beauty of outline could make it   And.  he is not in the least sensitive with regard to the peculiarities of* his appearance.     Some   time   ago,   when' lie   was  staying in New York, says tho "Critio,"  he received a mysterious letter from an  individual saying that it.  was  ltw  one  wish in life to meet the great author.  At first Zangwill took no notice of the  letter; but the man wrote .so often and  so   persistently   that   Zangwill   ut   last  I dun led,   and     appointed   a   tniii*   und  place for meeting.   At the veiy chiming  ol  the appointed  hour, to  lihn  entered,  as they say in the old 'iliiy*., nn enthu-  sift-.lic   Gennnn   Jew,   who   talked    and  talked and talked "until he'd nioit look  loot."   Zangwill's time waa valuable; ho  had  many other appointments,  find,  at  lost, gently  insinuated   us   much.   Still,  hhi enthusiastic  vibitor  did  not depart.  Even Zangwill's patience git\n win. "I'm  mr.ud," he said, "I'm very busy.   AVhnt  can  I do for you?"    "Mi-hl     You  h.if  done for me.
