There Is Ku Advantage  to Be Galnwl
From   C-oii��S"   Huifft-ry.
���We are living in an age or fads, remarks Good Health, and as its opinion
lias. been solicited in regard to the
���'f listing fad" it proceeds to give it as'
follows: ^
There is no particular advantage to
be gained from going hungry. Hunger
is the yoiee of nature telling us that
the system need's food and; like all of
nature's warnings, should be heeded.
Ta be sure,'a' great many, we might-
say the majority,, of "people, eat too
much as well as too ..often. But the
entire abstinence from food is ah exceptional- remedy if it is used at all:
In -cases where one's stomach is" tilled
with germs it is far better to fast than
to 'go on eating in the usual way. but
even then it is not necessary, for one
can get all .the benefits of fasting and
more without discomfort by .subsisting:
for a time,upon a fruit; diet. In this
way ;the germs are, starved out, the
fruit juice acting as n disinfectant.
Usually one or two days of this kind
of fasting, is all thatt is needed, and
it is not always necessary to use the
Iruit entirely alone even then. Some
dry sterilized bread, such as zwieback
or griiiiosc, may be taken with it without interfering with the purpose of tha
fast. It is really wonderful what can
be accomplished by the use of fruit iu
ridding the' digestive tract of germs.
Ettu   de  Cologne.
How many of those who use-can de
cologne from Cologne daily, one might
almost say hourly, are aware of the
fact that it was invented by an Italian
and not by aeson of the Fatherland,
which gives its name?
-Almost 200 years ago an Italian
priest, Giovan Maria Farina, eked out
his modest fortune by selling perfumery, little art objects ancl so on at Do
modossola. In 1702, happening to be
m Cologne and making use of some of
the finest vegetable productions of the
country, he 'discovered the secret of
the .miraculous perfume, which has
never been revealed to this day except
to his descendants. lie soon devoted
himself to the sale of his invention,
which was so satisfactory that, needing help in its manufacture, he had his
brother' and nephew join him from
The increasing .fame- of the water
brought increasing difficulties of rivalry. New firms who stole his name.'bis
trademarks, stamps ancl so on sprang
up like mushrooms, but they could not
steal his secret."     /
Smoking? a  Narghile.
���-"The narghile is the best instrument
to smoke tobacco through, provided you
"use it .-in the/right, way.!''said a man
who,knows. "Most .people use it in the
wrong way. They load it With'tobacco
*nnd light up with a* match as though
it was a pipe, they were smoking. This
is incorrect, ahd . the /larghile, . so
abused,' has an. abominable taste and
odor.' The right7way to use the bar-5
gh'ile ia first, tci dip your tobacco in
water, squeeze the water out and place'
the soaked, damp mass in the pipe
bowl.' 'Then you* take a lump "of burn-
,ing charcoal and set it.ou tlie top of
the wot. tobacco and begin to smoke.
The tobacco itself..you,see. is not really
alight: it's the charcoal that's alight; it
is the burning-charcoal that eats, the'
tobacco up.' This is the secret of narghile smoking. And a narghile, smoked
pr-iperly. is delicious���makes, in-fact}
the, .very .best smoke in the world."(

Her Great   Fault. , -    -;
A Georgia', citizen "recently said that
while riding5out from Savannah on,
horseback "he saw-a- typical southern
matron outside, a whitewashed cabin,
while,on the. lawn in"front a bevy of
'young colored" children, 'were - playing.
There��� were eight of��� them altogether.,
seven,of their number'being very, very-
dark;'while tho, eighth 'one, was light

"Aou've got some  fine looking children-there, auntie," he said.        ,    ��.
"Deed I hab.' boss." she replied.
"Dere ain't any better pickaninnies in

Suffered Much Agony, His Appetite Failed, and His Strength Left Him���-Hope
For Similar _ufferers.
Only those who have suffered from
the pangs of rheumatism know how
much agony the. sufferer has at times
to endure. The symptoms often vary,
but among them will be found'acute
pains in the muscles and joints, the
latter sometimes much swollen. At
times the patient is unable to dress
himself, - and the slightest jarring
sound aggravates the. pain. Liniments and outward applications cannot possibly cure rlVovima'tism ; it
must be treated through tho blood,
and for this purpose then.: is no medicine yet discovered can equal Ur.
Williams' Pink Pills. When given a
fair trial these pills never fail to
cure even.* tlie most stubborn cases of
rheumatism. Mr. Jos. Kocliette, a
well known resident of St. Jerome,
Que., in an interview with a reporter
of L'Avenir du Xord, offers strong
proof of the value of Dr. Williams'
Pink J^ills in cases of this kind. Mr.
Jlochetto says.���"For nenily three
years 1 was a great , sui'"ier from
rheumatism. The pains seemed at
times to affect every joint, and the
agony I endured was terrible. Sometimes 1 could scarcely move about,
and was unfitted for work. The
trouble affected my appetite, and in
this way my weakness increased and
my condition became more deplorable. T tried a number'of remedies,
but nothing -helped me until I was
advised to take JV. Williams' Pink
Pills, and 'then relief came. Gradually the pains Icit me, my appetite
improved, and* I became greatly
strengthened. .Before 1 had' taken a
dozen boxes my health and vigor was
such that J felt better than 1 hid before the trouble began. J have not
since had an ache or pain, and I feel
convinced . that Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills ,are the best medicine in the
world for   rheumatism."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold in
every civilized land, and their enormous "sale, is due entirely to their
-great merit as a medicine. They cure
all such troubles as rheumatism, sciatica, locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, nervous headache, kidney ailments, neuralgia and the weaknesses
that afflict so many women. Do not
let any dealer persuade you to try
something else which he may" say1 is
"just as good." See that the full
name "Dr. Will jams' Pink Pills for
Pale People" is'-; one the wrapper
around every box. If .in doubt, .send
direct to the JPr. Williams Medicine
Co.," Brockville,' Ont., and the pills
���will be mailed, post, paid, at 50c per
box, or six boxes for'��2.50.  -

His  father clutched his shoulder, leaned  heavily upon it and gasped: "Son, son,  ; we're on the edge of ruJa! Charley  found ou*, early .this mornin' that Gill  -Magee had run away with all the county money! And me on his bond for  .$50,000! I trusted Gill like my own  brother!"  "There, there, Uncle Jim," Charley  interposed. "Walls have ears sometimes, and we must.not leave one loophole in, this precious document. It's a  deed of "gift, Jimmy.   Uncle Jim makes  over to you everything���������land, money,  stock and crops."  ( "Whut for?" Jimmy, asked, "his eyes  wide. Charley laughed shortly. "For  the, best of reasons���������to save himself  from beggary and keep a roof over his  head. But I've written it down for a  consideration of $1'. love and'natural  affection.

"In my old age" too! I never did think  I could be brought to any of them cov-  eriii' up tricks: I've been so proud to  hear folks say, 'As honest as a Marion.'- But what else can I do?

Could they give it up and go away,  strangers in a strange.land?  , Stronger,    more   insistent    was   the  thought of Cressy.1   How should a .beg-,  gar lift eyes to her?   No, not a beggar  except for work!    Somehow the word  was   a tonic.    He  faced  halt\ about,  drew his mother in front of him. and  said with many breaks: "Charley���������I���������I  ���������cain't. talk with you. ' But the Lord-  help  me���������to  show  I���������can  work   with  -you." '  Squire Marion stepped beside his  sou, linked arms and said: "Ruin or no  ruin,. Charley. I'M do as Jimmy says.

Squire  Marion said, catchiug Cressy in his  arms. Charley darted away, swearing  under his breath. Jimmy? Jimmy  put his head upon his -mother's shoulder and cried for the first time since he  was ten years-old.  Jimmy showed the stuff- he was made  of by working through five hopeless  j*ears trying to save the homestead,  mortgaged to full yalue. Cressy helped  him, singing "'about the -place,.' her  face always sunshiny, her tempers all  blown away. Still there was rejoicing, indeed, wlten Gill Magee came  back from_the Klondike with money  enough to'make good all his- luckless  ���������..sureties', had paid. Littlo Jim. aged  four, high in the' arms of his doting  grandmother, held the canceled mortgage in a candle flame and laughed %  see it burn.

I am  neither a  *"        (if V '  ' thief, robber nor burglar, but a linan-  x'lal agent for people who have property to depose of, property acquired in  uu unlawful  way.   For Instance, if a  burglar  comes   across  bonds,   shares,  notes, deeds and the like while pursuing his calling be bundles them up and  , brings them to me.   For a liberal commission 1 dispose of the papers on tho  1 open market or deal with the loser direct.    Now and then I handle jewelry*,  but the gems must be valuable and the  losers wealthy to interest me in a case.  Ir may be'of'interest to know that I  was a fairly good civil engineer before  1 became a financial agent.  Why I exchanged professions is a, matter concerning inyself alone.  Ten   y-oars  since  a   friend   of   mine  named Dc-e got into trouble in a west-  .ern  state.   In  trying1",to   break* away  from the officers one of,them was shot  dead.  That meant the gallows for Dee.  I,at once secured the best legal counsel  for liiin, but was plainly told that only  ' a miracle could save his neck.   When  i    his  case  Ciime  up,   he was  convicted  without the jury leaving the box! and  he   wao  sentenced fto' be ��������� hung.    Wc  ' _._ made au appeal, and'he went back to  prison knowing that he would be safe  for eight or ten months to come.   *  - Dee was a  man of twenty-eight,, a  gentleman by birth, one of the handsomest men you.ever saw.  Had it been  a jury of women they would have acquitted  him  as   promptly  as "he was  convicted. - A    dozen    females    broke  down  and   wept (when .he   was   sentenced.  Though'watching things close-  .' ly* I had not put myself forward at the  trial.  Among the interested ones I had  noticed-unhandsome girl about twenty,  and the trial was not half concluded  when I knew tbx?t she regarded Dee  ,  as an innocent man and a hero.   When  - the verdict 'of guilty was pronounced,  she ! fainted   away," and  the   incident  ���������*  * v  ���������    created some local gossip. ���������** <  As nothing more could be done for  Dee for some time I was about to leave  the city, when 1 received' a note asking  ;me.to call at a certain house.  I called  *     and met Miss Fay. Dee's courtroom ad-  7 mirer and an heiress." She, told me that!,  '"she had fallen in love with  Dee and  that every dollar she had was at his  disposal to save his neck.   When I replied th'a't^it wasn't a question of money ,and that he was almost, certain to  hang after we had exhausted all legal  dodges,   she' asked  me  to  remain  in  town until I heard from her again.  Dee was a far better man in all  things than three-fourths of those  shouting their morality, but I felt it  my duty to tell "Miss Fay just where he  stood. I admitted to her that be was a  criminal  Instead  of  a ihero  and  that  *  even if his life was saved through her  efforts she' could hardly hope he would  marry.her and settle down.   Nothing 1  could, say would  dispel her  illusions,  and she actually became angry at me  for giving her brotherly advice.   She  did not teli mc what steps she meant  to take, but I knew by the light in her  eyes that she would hesitate at nothing.   It was seven days before I met  her again, and I was astonished at the  work she had done.   Dee was confined  in the county jail", which was as strong  i4,-*nd safe as a state prison.   He had a  "''cell at the end of a wing, and*was so  hedged in by bolts, bars, guards and  steel and stone walls that there was  not the remotest chance for an escape.  In a week the girl had located the  cell, vented a cottage outside the walls  and  stocked  it  with  tools and  provisions and laid the plait to defeat jus-  lice.   The plan was boldness itself.   I  was to find  two trusty  men  and  en-  scontje myself in the cottage and dig a  tunnel  to the cell  of the condemned.

To  dig  .that   tunnel   was   the   work   of  months,  and  to  run  its  other  mouth  Into a cell was a feat the oldest engineer and the nerviest sort of a crook  might well hesitate over.   I  ridiculed  the whole .plan at 'once, but Miss Fay  took it tip point by point, and ������o well  did she argue-that after three, or four  only to .deceive the neighbors. ,As soon  as we settled in the house we began  work on the tunnel, and we never put  in less than -fourteen hours-out of the  twenty-four.    The two  men   with   me  knew what they  were being paid for  and'could be depended upon.   The cellar of the cottage gave us room for the  dirt excavated,  and  It  seemed  as   if  luck was w>xb us from  the- start.    It  was winter, with but few people passing on the side street, and the ground  being hard frozen there was less danger of the roof of the tunnel falling in.  One can run a ditch on the surface  as  straight as a  rule,  but when  you  come to run a tunnel it 'is a'different  thing.    We _ had  sewers   and  gas  and  water pipes and beds df rock'to look  for, and the far end must reach a certain cell  inside the jail.   To say  that  1 sweat blood over that job would be  drawing it mild.   We went over or under  the  pipes   in   the  street,   made  a  couple of elbows  to avoid big rocks,"1  and linally   reached the   prison   wall.  From tbe wall we were to go under a  uoal, sued   until   reaching   the   prison  wall,  and there wohld ,be no chance  to   take   sights   above   ground. 'For-'  tunately for us we struck an old abandoned   sewer,   and   this   saved   us   at  least a'month's digging.   We followed  it up to the'prison wall'and then'we,  were  twenty-five  feet  from   the  spot  we wanted to Jreach.       ���������     ������������������ '  The jail had a'-.cellar, but under only  two-thirds of tljfe space. The new wing  rested on a bed of rock and cement.  In the difficult work-,we had to got  around the pipes we" progressed, only  by inches.' Tpward',the last of' our,  work Miss Fay called at the.cottage  of a'-nigbt an<i*'even crept into the tunnel.- She made the ' arrangements for  the future, and I alone was taken into  her confidence.   , ���������   "   ������  At last there' came a night when we*  began work,'on 'the flagstones" forming  the floor of Dee's cell.,' I  had got a  note'to  him,  and  he' knew  what we  were doing. _��������� It was two  nights later  before    we', broke    through    and    he  dropped    down    among    us. * As    we  emerged into the cellar'of the1 cottage  I halted to telt him the story of the  girl, and whpu I had-finished it I said:  "You'   mu'st    make   a'   choice.   You  must either r in any the girl and settle  down to an honest life, or I will.give  you  up  to the  prison . authorities  be-  ifore'you'can''leave the house.'  "' He did not hesitate.   Ho was touched  by  her devotion and glad  enough  of  an opportunity'to drop his profession.  In ��������� an hour he was at' the appointed  place.   She was there to greet him,and  a clergyman was there to marry them.  Then they' went away into hiding, and  it was months later before they crossed  the sea to make .a home in'a foreign  land.   Thes'es'cape,and the tunnel were  discovered, of course, but the-cottage  was' empty and   the   late  occupants  could not ,be traced.   While, I rejoiced  over Dee's'good luck, I really felt more  solid satisfaction over the  success of  my tunnel.   The newspapers, on the authority "of the city engineer, pronounced  it a splendid piece of work, and added  that the designer must have ability of  no mean order.   I had come out to an  inch of the spot aimed at, and I  had  taken   a   prisoner  out  of   one  of  the  strongest jails in the world.  to the elbow.

Thick curtains hung at the  doors and windows,  and the     walls  were covered with pictures',  many of  them scenes,in   the war, for freedom:  a picture  of Queen Louisa surrounded  by licr* children,   and family  portraits   without   number,   some     powdered   and   rouged,   some   of   a later  date,   with Titian-colored'hair.       On  one side was a stand for pipes, some  with    very    handsome     meerschaum  bowls.    A stuffed setter dog was  in  front  of the mirror.

" i  In a r. cent interview with a news-  ' paper    correspondent,   Col. , Prior  made   a statement regarding   the  policy of the Government on some  important questions;' The Premier ,  is'of opinion that the ordinary ex-*-  periditures    of     the    Government  ". should be.ke.pt within revenue,,and  that no more.loans should be floated except for0specific purposes, such  ,'ai railway development. The action'  of the Finance Mhiister in trying  - to get all. taxes in arrears is quite  , right; it is not just that one should  f pay and'"another'get out of paying  " taxes.     This is  sound policy, and'  we hope the law in'in is respect will  be carried out without  "fear, favor  or affection.", The published lists  of sales oflands for .taxes' held rer'-  ce'ntly show to what an alarming  extent the public domain was held j  by'greedy, land speculators,1 many-  'of  whom:'we.e   made   to  disgorge1  frum .sheer .inability   to  pay  the  , taxes-due on the large.tract sof land,  held Jt>y.them  for  the purposes of  "speculation".'    The   Premier - is " of  ' "opinion that it is the duty of..every  - government to formulate a railway  c policy; no country lik'e B,.C."caii be.,  '.���������developed .without being opened up  >   by railways, and it was tbe -policy  ~-of the Government to develop the  Province by railroad building. The  Government  will  assist   railroads  when necessary in the form of land  subsidies  under   such   restrictions  *    and  conditions   as   will   promote  settlement and  development.    The  Premier believes that a line of railway from Vancouver to the North  would be a laudableenterprise. He  also  believes that we should have  another trans-continental line from  the Rockies down (o the Coast, and  that  such a railway .should come  through Cariboo, down Bute Inlet,  and  across  to^ Vancouver  Island.  He does not believe in giving  assistance to the scheme to  run the  railway  to   Port  Simpson,   which  would build up a rival city to Vic- *  toria and Vancouver.    The Prfmi-  er believes in developing the Province by the construction of cheap  narrow guage railways  as feeders  for  the' main  lines.     The   Coast-  Kootenay road is considered a "fair  necessity.."  and must be built,  as  well as some other roads in the interior.     The   Province  ia   not  in  favor of the two per cent, mining  tax,   as  it  bears, unfairly on   low  grade ordes.     The request made to  Government that placet;.--.and  hydraulic  mines' elixjuid   be'-'crown-  gianted  is  a   difficult problem to  deal  with,   and   the   Premier��������� eay.s  that some alterations may be made  in the Act providing for the better  ���������title  to such'lancl than at present.  The  Prerriier believes .here should  f f v.      -  ������������������'��������� be a general scheme of .unoccupied  Government lands, so that tbe  Government ��������� would be able to inform intending settlers as to. local  conditions, extent, topography, etc.  The Premier also touched on the  ' unfair terms given B.C- by the  Dominion Government, and said he  was going to Ottawa to talk over  that matter and the Fisheries question, etc., with Premier Laurier.  With regard to Oriental immigration this Government is strongly  opposed to the iuflux of this class.  The, Dominion' Government, has  disallowed the Acts passed'laft session,* but they will'be re enacted as  soon as the' House meets, to show  that the people of B.C. are in ear-  nest'about this 'question.  teci3tmrW^������ta^itev^VX  .
