North  Vitkima,  May 28..���������The   ten-  month old child of  lieiuv   Anderson,  tt " '  was drowned today by falliing i.ilo  a i.oiler of hot water. The .bild  wafi sitting in a hip.h tiiair n������!\r its  mother, who was doinp; the. family  washing. While the mother h.ul gone  into the' kitchen on an errand the  child fell into the hot water. When  she. returned the child was found  headforemost in the boiler and was  dead.  Dame "Julie Lagimodiere Riel is  e:ead. She wan born 8fi years ego  at St. lloniface, the daughter of  liaptiste Laoimodicre, and Marie  Anne Oa\ioiiry-La������imodiere, the first  white c>ni|.li> to place foot upon the  soil of the prairie west. At the  ;?ge of twenty-two she was married  1o Louis Iliel, trapper, the ceremony taMng place at the old Mission church, St. Boniface' Of this  union ten children were born, only  three surviving her. They arc Alexander, Joseph, and Madam Gladu,  all  residents of Manitoba.  Dame Riel was of a qmict unob-  stiusive character; living a long and  not altogether happy life in three  distinct chapters, first as the glad  yc-tuiQ- wife, then as a happy motlicr  ,and last ns the sorrowing, brokenhearted mourner, of a most unfortunate son. Brought from" thc re-  tiruiij, recesses of a ���������humble life into  the light of two rebellions, she  stood the test of that viglit well;  her unvvavrriHig and unaltcraHille faith  in her unhappy son giving a distinction to her character which cvxn  Jiatsh.'st, criticism could not assail.  No condemnation of the public, no  act of this son, could shake her  faith in the "intention" of her son  Louis.  Madame Riel was a womaJi of re-  mrtrVuihly strong character; This was  stamped upon her face, which was.  in youth, said to he Comely. She  ���������worked always, recording 'witlr great  pride th.it "never for a single day  ���������had she occasion to call a physician." Her children were hroughit  into the world and raised by her  unaided.- IVepriyations she had 1-nown  and ciiKliircd, 1,1't the pioneer spirit  of'Ala ric Anne Gab) nity was thctfe ;  and although that spirit was tried  in the crucible of hardship, grief  and (ears, yet, it stood the test  well as  the true pioneer spirit will.  Dame Kiel has passed away from  earth "full of years," and with her  passes o;ie of the last landmarks ~nf  the past.  A faithful wife a.n-.i a -most ���������.'.ev.-'t-  ed mr.iher, she leaves behind ������jr ',.  memory of devotion and grief su-i;  as seldom i:al!.s to the lot of wo-.  nia-1' to hear. In the silence of the  grave she will hear no word of  blame for the son she loved, better,  perhaps, for hi,s misfortunes, as mothers will love. Henceforth her  grief-; and tears are .done, for she  has surely found after iife's stormy  sea, the "peace which passeth all  understanding."

Mir,���������Owing to  many  alluring   ad-  ertisements api>eariJig in many papers, especially some of the chciper  American publications1, many clnld-  ien are induced to send for -i ibox  of hat pins, broaches, perfumery a'ul  an. endless v^jricty of othci wtlueks.  tltiings, which they try to sell fioin  house to house at in cents each.  The objection I take to it, is 11ns  Supposing a neighbor's child should  come to my house and I could not  spate the ten cents, or I had not :  the change-..'to bur Jan article, 1  would have to refuse, and because 1  refused, and the -child--not being old  enough to understand that my refusal ' was not a lack of generosity,  might easily go away harboring an  ill-feeling and under the 'impression  that stinginess'on my part was the  reason they did not. make, a sale and.  that impression might, remain with  them through life. For this reason. 1 think it very wroiift for parents to allow their .children to s-o  from hoi*e to house selling articles  of iio value and for which 'they receive nothing of any value ��������� f^.r .selling the  articlew.  A child is  not old    enough to   l.e  epidemic, which,  if such,  occurs,  cm   a Ju'd-ge of hu-mianity,- and might very  on-lv  he much I. by  Prs.

-NEWS NOTES
II Is nob tha price you pay for a furnace that makes it cheap
or expensive, but the fuel it afterwards consumes.
A common furnace may cost you $5 or $10 less than a
" Sunshine," but if it oats this up tho first winter in extra fuel,
what do you gain? Nothing, but all the annoyance and extra
���work that go with a poor furnace.
The " Sunshine " is in use from Halifax to Vancouver,
and wo have hundreds of testimonials from pleased users.
Sold by enterprising dealers everywhere.   Booklet free.
