' t' ���������~ {     **  The concert and' dance for the  , Fernie Relief Fund held last Monday evening   in   the, Cumberland  Hall,   was   fairly- well   attended,  considering the disadvantages  under' which the function laboured.  First there was the weather,, dread-  fully   wet,   and   unavoidably   so.  Then the Minstrel   entertainment'  having been set so close to the date  'of the concert/no doubt prevented  some  people' from  attending   who  would have done so; Now,-as to the  -Minstrels. ' Knowing, as they must  that this concert was afoot at least,  ,a month ago, notice to thatr effect  having   been   given   at   the   first  Fernie Relief meeting held, and before  any; other, it. seems   strange  that there  was no  move made by.  them to hold their .affair later, on,  "so as to avoid clashing/   But'from  the fact that this was not done, and  from reliable reports that certain of ������  their, number have deliberately and  systematically   tried   to   influence  people againstLthe concert,it seems  that there has.heen ah  attempt   to  "burke the whole affair.'   This may,  ^ormiay not be ^business," but it is  certainly "nbt "'charity/ and charity  was the object in both eases., .

Let us hope they will patronize .the  minstrels and  help swell  the fund  somehow.    To come to the concert,  universal opinion has it that it.was  the most entertaining and talented  that has taken ,place in the hall for  a long time.    Pains had been taken  to'secure performers who were fairly certain tb~ entertain^ the public,  and not to fill out a  lengthy pro -  gramme with uninteresting  numbers.    The Misses Ben nie,  who are  with us again,  Miss Corbett,  Miss  Rushworth and   Mr Moore aie a-  mong those who are to be reckoned  as  fresh  performers,   as   also   the  Corbett   Quartette   Club, in   their  magnificent selections   and,   Prof.  Schaffner in a cornet solo%    Many  other tetter known favourites took  part.     All did their work well,  at  the hearty  applause showed,  and  every one who promised,  with one  exception,  turned up  to make the  affair a grand success.    A full programme will appear next week.  The committee desire to thank  Messrs Piket, J. B, McLean, Pulkn  and Bennett for services rendered  in, assisting during the evening,  also to the ladies, and gentlemen  who participated in "the concert  programme.  f  ��������� y  CORONATION   DAY   POSTPONED.

"Bold on!" cried the foreman.    "I  don't need half the men I got up thar,  ;      an you'll want all   yon can get.    Wait  till I  send those  I don't'want   back,to  you. "    Spider, who had  been listening  to all   that was  said, made   a dash for  ''his horse.    Being  sternly ordered back  'to his place on the ridge, he went, taking the horse with him.  The   foreman  sent   me  nearly  two-  thirds of  the men   he had.    They were  *ail   in011 nted   and   waiting   when    the  Ballet Girl rode up and joined thern.   I  ordeied'him away, but he   paid  no at-,  m tentiorTto the  command.    Not a sound  could  be heard t except   now and   then  the faint jingling of a bit or the whir-  . Ting click where some man whirled  his  cylinder in examining his pistol.    The  foreman divided the  men   he   had   left,  ���������into two parties, one of which he placed  at either end   of  the  ridge they occupied, leaving   an  open   space   between  ' ��������� them.    Then he, signaled   that   all was  -done.   I wanted to give the order to advance,   and   the  only  words  that  occurred to me at the time were the ones  used, to start footraces  in the college 1 -  ���������had. left the year before. '   '  "Are you ready?" I called. The men  screwed   themselves   into their  saddles  ' and 'leaned   forward.     Some  of  'them  cocked  their  pistols.    Then. "On your  mark^sl-   Set!   Go I" - '  -  Scarcely knowing what I did. I darted  ''    the spurs into the flanks of   my horse  '    He leaped forward.   At the same instant  there was  a'w.ild.'yell from   the   men.  -and the ground thundered and shook as  '. they followed.    As  we passed our men  v   -on the  hill,-their  rifles   blazed all   together     1 could  see the  sand fly from  '    !ihe[cpposite slope. >  '  .-'   It seemed to   take  hours   to traverse  ,the few yards that divided us from our  enemies. - In reality  it must have been  k'   somewhat -Jess   than"  half   a   minute  Then-we galloped   up the rise     Behind  ���������its crest,there wTas  a row of malignant  ���������faces that'immediatelyvanished behind  ���������clouds of, rifle smoke.   My horse reared,  'lurched forward and recovered himself  ���������I dropped the reins on the pommel and  'began firing rapidy  with'a pistol   heldr  ������   in each hand.   Another yell broke from  <, -our men as they charged   over  the top  -of.the ridge.    The  six  shooters" began  .  >to talk rapidly  and   all at < once." interrupting the rifles.. -*>  One of our enemies turned and ran .  then threw up* his hands, .seemed to  ', -stumble, and fell. ��������� I saw that it was  Hoi lis. and I wondered vaguely why he  was behaving in such a manner and  whether he was as badly frightened as  ,1 was Then something struck me as a  club might stiike. and for a time everything disappeared t  , A few   moments  later I   became con-  .si-ions that 1 was being rapidly dragged  over th������.j ground    Then I opened mv eyea  ���������,_..���������% ���������-.v thai Spider's face was directiy  s'iiiivh   tiiv own:' saw   that,   though   la������  ftiorse was galloping, lis cua not pass ma  ���������I could feel that his left hand was fast  -on my collar.  His right arm was hocked.  ���������around tbe horn   of   his  saddle, and   1  ���������noticed that the pistol ..he   held in   the  -same hand was   much   fouled   from re-  *cent use.    I concluded that  Spider was  /dragging me behind his Ijorse.   Why he  was dragging, me or   where   I   neither  -knew nor   cared.    Everything   became  'black again  "You have been -wounded," said the  man in Spanish. "You ' cannot get up  and it is not well that you should talk.  Let me feel your pulse. "  "Send for the foreman and then''l  will," I repeated unreasonably The  priest hesitated.."        ' " '  "Send for the foreman, .padre. and  then you can do as you likel" I cried  again  "He is becoming excited c Fetch the  man   he   wants,    but   only   for   a   mo-  - meat,'* said the priest'at last. "The^sis-  ter vanished and in a moment returned  .with', tlie foreman at her heels.

Female Jesters. '   '
".' Nothing better 'illustrates the' dulU

the cnstcmi used by all high placed and
wealthy^persons- of keeping a professional jester, nor was it. confined to
Christendom, for we read that Cortes
found an individual of this profession
at the court of Montezuma; Our modern clowns, though very different from
the licensed jesters of old, owe to them,
of course, their origin; but, so far as I
know, the female jester, who was in
vogue before the male, has no present

Probably the oldest timber/in tho
world which has been subjected to the
use of man is that found in the ancient
temples'of Egypt in connection with
tbe stonework, which is known to be
at least '4,000 years old. This, the only
wood used in the construction ,of "the
temples, is in the form of ties holding
the end of one stone to another. When
two-blocks were laid in place, an excavation about an inch deep was made
in each block, in which a tie shaped
like an hourglass is driven.' It is therefore very difficult to force any stone
from its position.'

The Value of Pain.
When othei; was first discovered and
used in surgery, it was said that to
abolish pain would be to change the
laws of nature herself; that pain is a
safeguard; that it indicates in cases of
injury, the seat of injury and.in some
instances the cause of injury; that if
men learned to minimize or prevent it
atj^pleasure they might annul it altogether and invent a new constitution
in which this sentinel of danger would
be at'all times'off duty-

The curtain had just fallen on the  Thanksgiving matinee, and the stage  hands were already clearing the stage  for the feast which' Manager Evans  had ordered for his company! ' .That  astute gentleman had personally superintended the preparations and arranged every detail.  The stage was to be set with a dull  oak interior, ablaze r with electricity  overhead, in the flies'and at the footlights, with the front of the .house in  darkness'to heighten the brilliancy of  the improved dining room.' , Gorgeous chrysanthemums he had ordered  from New York for the centerpiece,  and the menu was the very best that  the leading caterer of the small New  England city could furnish.  Evans had just stepped into the leading  man's  dressing room  for the  assurance that his personal, appearance  was  in keeping with the festal occa-,  sion before' presenting himself to the  young woman in whose honor the dinner was being given, Miss Ella Ran-'  ' som." ^He had meant to be careful 'as.  _to speech before that dinner, and after;  : jward, when .the company was trying  ��������� to' amuse itself until the evening, performance    and "to1 forget,  the . folks  "gathered    round    home    firesides,"'' he  , would have a little chat with her alone  in her dressing' room and put the, momentous  question. . Surely  this^ little.,  act of thoughtfulness would pave ;the  way. , He knew in a general way .that  she was a New England .girl and that  Thanksgiving.day was to such asshe  the'all important festival.'-The theatrical instinct in Evans was so -strong  that even'His own love story had to be  worked up to the proper climax.    But  'Miss, Ransom with true womanly'contrariety set all his fine plans at naught.  When'he entered the star's dressing  room" in response to a muffled "Come!"  Instead of facing a tiandsomely-gowncd  and smiling girl,'.as he had anticipated,  , he'saw a-forlorn figure curled up on  the sofa.    Miss Ransom still wore the  frock used in theclast act, and as she  straightened up1 she made a futile effort to hide her grief with a lace trim-  rried bit* of cambric.    All the graceful  1 little, speeches which Evans had been  conning for hours failed him  at this  critical moment.   He forgot the flower  .decked table on the stage and the actors who by this time must be hurry-  . ing from their dressing rooms to the  scene of the festivities.   He knew only  that Ella was in trouble and���������he loved  her. \ -  "My dear girl, what has happened?"  Alas   for  the  cleverly   worded   proposal  that  was  never to  be  spoken!  The  tone, * the  gesture . and   the   love  'MY DEAR Glut,  WHAT *HAS   HAPPENED?"  light in his ey.es told their own tale,  and Miss Ransom understood. That  is why a few minutes later she was  sobbing out her lktle heartache in his.  arms. and-vJncoherently. pouring the  cause tSei*jko4..into his ear.  "Oh. it was ldvely of you, perfectly  dear, to think of this plan for my  Thanksgiving! But you did not know  how close you were bringing me today  to my old home. It'^ just ten miles  from here^-Upper^Da)^, and I haven't  seen it for'five.'y������ars."$jj  "Why didn't you te^ me this, and instead of the dinner We'd have ridden  there between the matinee and nieht  performance?" asked Evans, gently  smoothing the golden head resting on  his shoulder. It was nature's own.'tint  There was sorne\hirig genuine and womanly about Ella Ransom. . He bad  recognized this from the first. ,  "Oh. you see, I wouldn't���������be���������welcome���������there." The sweet lips- quivered again,, and Evans felt in duty bound  to do what he could to put a stop to that  pathetic expression. Then Miss '-Ransom .continued:    /       V*'.,.',r|,,^''i:  :.''. '. '  "I���������I ran away to go on the stage,  and father said he never would foi;-  giVe me, whether I became famous- oi  ���������of und he always, keens his word.  And, oh, I would like to see mother  when I am'so neai; to 'her!"  "Never'mind, dearest," said Evans.1  "I'll try to take the , place of-parents  and husband to you. And now we're  making an awful stage wail." ,  He bent over for a final kiss, and  when Ella removed the makeup she  succeeded also in hiding'almost every  trace, of her recent 'grief. It was a  smiling young'woman whom he finally  led to the head of the great table. After  all, he decided, as he glanced from one  cheerful face'to another, he, would announce their engagement at the close j  of the dinner! and the company sho'ulft  drink*their health, and it would not be  such a bad climax. r  But again were' the plans of Manager  Evans set at naught. .With the salad  course came an urgent summons' from  tho box office. Evans'rose with mut-  terings that did ��������� not portend happily;  for the sender, of the message.  When he came, .back,' however,', the  expression on his.,, face "had' undergone  a change. He was smiling'.in akncrv-  ous fashion.- No one, noticed-two figures which stopped in'the shadow ot  the wings.   '     '" '  ���������'<"''" ' ".*''-��������� -<-'-. ���������'.  "Ladies and gentlemen,'-' said'Evans  impressively, "if gives me pleasure to  introduce two . unexpected , butv most*  welcome guests to this -board!'J-the  father and mother of our-leading lady,  Mr. and Mrs. Ransom.",,,      ,' t    '"  A girlish cry that ' would have  brought ^tho house to her < feet 'could  Ella Ransom, "have given" -it - on, the  stage, and then she. too, was, in the  wings witli Her mother's arms aboul  her.  .

'   *,*   4  When the laughter and handclapping  which followed this speech had subsided, Manager Evans took the floor,  and in words not half so eloquent!; as  he had rehearsed in private, 'but^sof-  tened by the happy family, reunion,[he  announced his engagement to Miss  Ransom. While the members of the  company had been making some pretty  shrewd guesses on the subject, they  were, properly surprised and congratulatory, and .before Deacon Ransom  realized what had happened1 he was  standing with the rest drinking champagne to the health of his daughter  and his son-in-law to be.  ��������� When the great day 'was overhand  Manager Evans had tucked the robes  around Deacon and Mrs. Rans*oni for  their homeward .ride-and hejhad,taken  a last kiss from Ella's happy lips, he  murmured to himself:  :"WelI, the stage business worked out  rather different from the way I'"had  planned it, but the climax and the picture were not half bad after all."  rewjfyears-ago some curious.bronze ar-,  tides were, found,in several of the'oid"  mine 'working's"'in, Corn wall," which 'are*  believed  to 'liave' been ' left,there* by  that-ancient people at a time .wlien no  bronze  was 'either '.made  or   used  in  England.���������Chambers' Journal.'"'"- - ''','  A TirelcsB   OlScial.

Old Age.  Professor .Towett, the great master  of.-Baliol college, had wise words to  speak on the crucial topic'of'growing  old.   He wrote to a friend:^  "The later years of life appear to me,  from a certain point of view, to be the  best. They are less disturbed by care  and the world. We begin'to \mder-  stand that things really never did matter so much- as we.supposed, and we  are able to see them more in their true  proportion instead of being overwhelm1  ed by them. We are more resigned to  the will'ot"God, neither afraid to der  part nor overanxious to stay. We cannot see into^another life, but we believe  with an inextinguishable ' h'op'e " that  there is something still reserved for  us."  It is worth while to remember his  bints \for: old age, full as they are of  a practical wisdom:  Beware of the coming on of age, for  it will not be defied.

It would appear that  a    very drastic measures are necessary  to keep unruly members or factions  in the Legislature in check'.     The  I.nperial House of Commons was  forced  to  legislate in this respect  in order, to combat the tactics  of  the   Irish   Home   Rulers   who   at  times  seriously retarded ���������the progress of legislation.     The  British  Columbia Legislature, after the experience of  the past  four months  should at its next session attend to.  the amendment of its rules of pro-  ��������� cedure, so that no opportunity will  tie given to faction or unprincipled  men.to  clog or  stop the wheels of  legislation.    Since the departure'of  the Premier, the Opposition members have acted in a more reasonable manner.    The important rail-  bills have been} passed, the  Loan  Bill, and Estimates dealt with. The  ���������whole object of the Opposition during the session  was very malicious  in its intent.    They could not force  the Government to resign, but they  imagined that the  prolongation of  I.he session Would prevent the Pre-  a-iierV'departure* for  England   to  attend, the coronation  ceremonies,  ;      a:nd the .Congress  of the.

Cures baldness of long standing by the use of PEER*  LESS HAIR RESTORER and ELECTRIC  MASSAGE TREATMENT, both of which  combined destroy all germs and invigorate,  the roots which stimulates circulation of the  active forces that feed the hair follicles; '  From one-to two months treatment  will Restore Baldness of long Standing:  Daily Treatment $15 per month.  Parasites cause all hair trouble. - Dandruff  is caused by a germ which saps the hair a  vitality. Vaseline and oils are of no benefit  to the hair,- as dandruff germs thrive iu  them, as "well as in all grease. To cure dandruff, which is preceded by, and a sure indication of, falling hair, it is necessary that  thedandruff germ be eradicated. From one  to three bottles of the Peerless Hair Restorer will cure the worst chronic case.  Advertise in tne lews.  VIOLIN   TUITION.  PROF C.H.
