Entire S. F. & N.
System
Last Sunday, December 10, the first
regular passenger train between Spo-
•iane and Midway over the Great
Northern .railway was put on. It
left Spokane at 9:15 a.m., arriving at
Midway at 5:40 p.m. The south-bound
train leaves Midway at ll) a.m., and
arrives at Spokane at 5:45 p.m., or 35
minutes earlier than under the old
schedule. The train for Spokane
leaves Grand Forks at 11:30 a.m., and
the west-bound train arrives in this
city at 4:30 p m. The train from
Phoe arrives here at '9:35 rn.cn. The
distance from Spokane to Midway is
107 miles.
Formerly the Spokane-Midway train
ran t«> Northport, but under the new
arrangement it is diverted at Marcus.
Nelson, which has been served recently by a mixed train from Northport,
now has a solid passenger train, which
connects with the through train at
Marcus. A through coach for Nel
sou is run daily out of Spokane, and
'.tile Nelson train also carrios a through
coach to Spokane. The mixed train
to Republic is maintained, but running time has been im iroved by th *
train departing from Republic an
hour later, or at 8 o'clock instead of 7
a.m., and arriving 15 minutes earlier,
at 6:15 tnstead of 6:30 p.m.
Ferry is the official terminus of the
road at present. The reports in different papers regarding the matter
seem to have got mixed, some giving
Midway and others Ferry as the terminus. It is not a matter of much
importance to passengers, anyway, as
the distance between the site "of   the
SJ
Midway depot and the Ferry depot is
only a few hundred feet.
tionally valuable medium of publicity
for manufacturers of mining machinery and supplies, real estate, financial

condition i? reported as being quite
critical.
Annual Review
The Nelson Daily News will issue
its customary special edition on Deo.
31 devoted to a review of the mining
and kindred industries of the province
during the'past year. The annual review has in the past been recognized
as the most comprehensive and reliable record of the year's progress and
development of the milling districts of
the province published in any form
It is the intention of the Daily News
to maintain the high standard of previous issues and, so far as possible, to
improve and widen the scope of the
review. Every phase of the mining
industry is covered, and the story told
is busai I upon authoritative statements
issued to tho Daily News hy the mine
and smelter managers of the provinco.
Every year since its first issue the
demand for this annual mining review
has been in excess of supply owing to
the fact that hundreds of orders for
from half a dozen to one hundred
copies have been received after the
forms havo gone to press. This year
the Daily News hopes that all orders
will be sent in before December 28.
The review is issued at 10 cents a
copy, and cash should accompany the
order
ENGLISH DOCTORS' FEES.
They  Are  Regulated  by  the  Royal
College ot Physlclaai.
The specialists must be divided into
two distinct classes, the Burgeon proper and the pure physician. The former
unquestionably gets big fees in ratio
to his reputation. The famous surgeon
has only to name his fee to the millionaire with appendicitis. With the
fear of death before his eyes he will
write his check gladly. When he lias
recovered he will often grumble it be
docs not boast. A younger and less
known man will perform the siune operation for a tithe of the cost, but the
public, with death staring tlieiu iu the
face, will have the man with the big
name, regardless of expense.
But the pure physician Is an entirely
different matter. His fees arc standardized not by act of parliament, but
by that autocratic body, the Royal
College of Physicians. His foes for
consultation at his own house are
fixed at 2 guineas the first visit qud a
guinea for each subsequent one. For
consultations away from home he receives a fee at the calculated rate of
two-thirds of a guinea a mile. Elstree,
twelve miles out of town, is ipso facto
8 guineas, Liverpool (201 miles) is 134
guineas, and so on pro rata. But it
must be remembered that nowadays
all the big provincial centers havo
their own specialists, and the town
man Is very Beldom sent for unless be
be one ot the very biggest names and
the case desperate and rich.
If the physician should accept mure
he transgresses that professional fetich, "medical etiquette,' and is briiud-
ad a quack by his less lucky brethren.
Moreover, when he arrives at a sufficient standing In the ranks of his profession the Royal College of Physicians will not elect him to their all important fellowship, the crowning qualification and, high water mark of his
calling.—London Mail. '

W. K. P. &L. Co.'s Single Line
Nearly Finished to the
Smelter
Since the destruction by fire of tho
No. 1 crusher at the Knob Hill mine
in Phoenix, it has been found necessary to send out more ore through the
Great Northern terminals to keep the
Granby smelter in full operation, and
that road is now taking out about
2000 tons of ore daily, while the C. P.
R. tonnage has been cut down to
about ten oars per day—all that the
crushers at the smelter can handle to
advantage.
The single line of the West Kuot-

ProbaMr the oldest method of determining tke tlm* of day waa by the
sundial, hut other devices have been
used far ages, including the water
clock, th* burning wick and the hour
glass filled with sand. Popular legend
attributes to King Alfred the invention
of the water clock, but long before his
time it was In use by the Egyptians
and lo Judea, Babylon, Chaldea and
Phoenicia. The contrivance for incus-
uring time by means of water appears
to have consisted of a basin filled with
water and exposed In some niche or
corner of a public place. At the extreme end of the vessel was a spout
or tap from which trickled the liquid
drop by drop into a receiver having on
its Inside marks for indicating the
hours of the day and night
In parts of southern India there was
used a thin copper bowl about five
inches in diameter and rather deeper
than bait a sphere, having a very
small hole at the bottom. The bowl,
placed in a vessel containing water
and floating thereon, gradually filled.
At the expiration of an arranged interval It sunk, aud a boy or another
watcher then struck a gong und thus
announced the time. It showed the
lapse of periods of forty-five minutes
with tolerable accuracy, but tbe time
varied with the temperature of the water. It was possible by the introduction of a cylinder containing a flouting
piston which worked on a cog wheel
to Indicate the hours.

TUESDM,  DECEMBER 12, 1905
The first election in Saskatchewan
will occur tomorrow, closing one of
the *nost bitter political battles in
Canadian history. The Liberals are
sanguine of winning, and concede
only one sent to Hnultain, but place
eleven in the doubtful class. On thc
other hand, the Provincial Rights
party claim 15 out of the 25 seats.
These are only party estimate**, but
there are bo many influences and so
many clashing interests at work-
that the result is impossible to forecast with any degree of certainty.
The finance department has issued
a statement of revenue nnd expenditure of the Dominion for thc five
months ending with November last.
For this period the revenue was
$31,562,586, or $2,263,869 more
than for the same period of last year.
The increase for tho month of November alone was about one million. There wns an increase in expenditure for the five months of two
millions and a half more than for
1904. This waa ahout a quarter of
million more expenditure than the
the increase from all sources of
revenue. On capital account the
five months' expenditure was SI,-
8110,000 greater than for 1904.
The conditions which are rapidly
driving largo manufacturers from
the United to Canada are lo be considered within a few days by the
Illinois Manufacturers' association.
Reports just gathered show that 132
of thc leading concerns of thc United
States have been obliged, chicHy on
account of tariff restriction, to establish branches in Canada. The
resulting loss, financially, is stated
at upwards of 800,000,000.
"The Polmatier sisters, who ap
peared at Stone's Music Hall last
evening, presented an unique entertainment, which included all the
elements of a first-class musical entertainment, witb a bright concert
flavor. Their program consisted of
soprano, cornet, and trombone solos, quintettes, vocal and instrnmen
tul trios, and were tendered in a
style quite refreshing and picturesque garbed in costume. Mr. Chas.
VV. Hitchcock in his dramatic monologues is worthy of special mention,
ns his work is clean and up-to-date
in every respect, and showed for itself by the numerous encores he received. It is hoped that the music-
oving people of Fajgo may have an
bppoftunit to her this excellent company again in the near future, and

In Newcastle. England, tiie mayor enjoys the privilege ot once u year being
allowed to select and kiss any young
woman wbo takes bis fancy among
tbe coal city's Inhabitants. Tbe kiss
Is rather costly, bowever, for it la tbt
custom to present tbe young person
kissed wltb a sovereign ($5), while a
further gift li made ber by the lady
miiyoress, no doubt to disprove jealousy. The sheriff, not to be outdone,
also bestows a Mas upon a fair bystander, at the same rate of expenditure. The occasion Is known as Barge
duy, when the mayor and corporation
proceed In a procession of four gnyly
decorated steamers nnd two old state
barges to claim the soil of tbe river
T.vue. Their journey over, the mayor
stands upon the boundnry stono, nnd it

A young woman of great, perbnpi
too great, sensibility begjed to be excused from visiting an aunt who lived
In an old fashioned bouse where pictures of a certain period were lu evidence. "There Is an engraving o* a
blacksmith's shop in the dining room!"
said sbe hysterically. "You can't expect me to eat my dinner there. I
smell the hoofs."
A similar criticism came from one
who suffered not from overreflnemeut.
but from something quite different.
She was a woumn of recently acquired
weiiltb. who, suys the New York Tribune, went into nn art gallery and asked for a painting of a certain size.
"I have just what yon want," said
the dealer.
He showed her a beautiful animal
painting, but sbe looked at It for a
few minutes and then shook ber head.
"It won't do," she said. "I want this
picture for my drawing room."
"Bnt it's a beautiful thing," ventured
thc dealer.
"Not fof a drawing room," announced the woman conclusively. "You
couldn't have a cow In a drawing
room!"
