Coroner's Jury Brings in a
Verdict of Death From
Pneumonia
bruised by tbe missiles hurled by
the enraged defenders of the much
desired witness.
Tbe officers then returned to the
oity, snd telegraphed the result of
their visit to tbe colony lo tbe government at Victoria, and asked for
further instructions. No reply bas
yet been received . to tbis message,
and no action bas been taken by tbe

Correct Time Received in
City Daily Over 0. P. R.
Wires From Montreal
The inquest on the body of the
the Doukhobor woman exhumed by
the authorities last week was resumed in the court bouse at 2
o'clock Monday afternoon by Coroner Blaok, of Qreen wood, after an
adjournment bad been taken from
Friday to allow of a post-mortem
examination being made.
Dr Truax, one of the physicians
making tbe examinination, testified
tbat no marks of violence had been
found on the body, and that death
was caused by pneumonia, wbich
had reached the third stage Tbis
evidence was corroborated by Dr.
Tbomset, wbo assisted in tbe autopsy. A number of other witnesses were examined during the
afternoon.
At 10 o'clock in the evening tbe
jury, composed of G. A. Stewart,
foreman; J. P. McNevin, Cyrus
L. Bugbee, E A. Johnson, H. 6.
Moore and CM. Connell, returned
tbe fallowing verdict:
Wt, the jury, say upon our oath,
that from the evidence produced,
we believe tbe body of tbe deceased
to be tbat of Mary Hoomnoho, who
died about Monday, August 11th
instant, at the Tweddle ranch or
vicinity, of pneumonia, unattended,
as we believe, by a qualified physician; and by medical evidence
produced, we believe her chances
of recovery were good if proper
medical attention bad been given.
By medical evidence produced, we
learn thai tbere is now in tbe Doukhobor colony at least one case of
incurable contagious disease, and we
recommend that the authorities have
a health officer to visit the Doukhobor colony at least once a month to
look into the health and sanitary
conditions of the people living there,
and also tbe law regarding the registration of births, marriages and
deaths be strictly enforced, for we
learn, by evidence produced, tbat
there baa been no registration of
births, marriages or deaths from the
colony since tbe present registrar
took office.
The only incident out ot tbe
usual in connection with the inquest occurred during tbe afternoon, when Coroner Black ordered
the police to go out to the colony
and bring in a Doukhobor who, be
had reasons to believe, would prove
important witness.
Constable Btanfield and Chief
Savage were despalched in an auto
to perform this task. When they
reached the mnn they were after
he made hit escape by taking to the
open fields. The officers were prevented from pursuing the flying
Doukhobor by being confronted hy
a battalion of colony Amazons,
who used bricks, rocks, pitchforks
and other farm implements as
weapons of war with remarkable
accuracy of marksmanship. The
two officers, realizing that pursuit of
the fsst vanishing man was now useless, and not desiring to use harsh
measures against the women; retreated to tbe auto, wbich they
reached      after     being    slightly

17 reduced 15's lead by seven eggs
last month, and on the last four days
have laid four eggs more thnn 15.
Both pens have had one pen broody
each. The next four pens are so close
up that the final issue will be hard to
predict. Pen 4 displaces 18, which
drops to fifth place. The former pen
distinguished itself by producing 143
eggs during ihe month. Pen 14 followed with 133. On July 3 pen 20
laid eight eggs between sunrise and
sunset, all being laid in the nests.
In Class 2 pen 32 still leads, in
creasing its score over 39 by eight
eggs. Its position, however, is bv no
means impregnable, as through brood-
iness during the last week only eleven
eggs were laid Pen 31 was leader
with 129 eggs, gaining 14 eggs on
pen 39. The latter pen is still, however, nearly 100 eggs ahead of 31,

Members of  International
Geological Congress Visit
the City
Yesterday morning a special train
of seven coaches, carrying the members of tbe C2 section of the international geological congress, which
recently concluded its session in
Toronto, arrived in the city from
Nelson, and tbe cninent visitors
spent a couple of hours bere. Wben
tbe train pulled into tbe union station at about 8 o'clock, all tbe autos
in tbe city were assembled tbere,
and one-balf of the members of tbe
party, or about forty, were taken
for an automobile ride around tbe
loop and up to tbe Granby smelter.
Tbe balance of tbe visitors were
taken to smelter io tbe special
train.
After the members of the party
been shown tbrough tbe Granby
smelter by the oflice staff, tbey
again boarded the train and pio-
ceeded to Pboenix.
It was tbe largest number ef
prominent men who have ever
visited Grand Forks. Tbe party included ninety five eminent geologists
from every country in the world,
wbo participated in the twelfth
session of the International Geological Congress of the World, wbich
was held in Toronto from August 7
to 14. This was the first session of
this notable congress ever beld in
Canada, and the third on tbe west
ern side of the Atlantic. Tbe session was beld in Canada tbis year
on tbe invitations of tbe Dominion
and Ontario governments, the Canadian Mining Institute aud the
Royal Society of Canada.
Geology is defined as tbe science
of treating tbe earth's history, and
it includes tbe study of the mineral
deposits and tbe floras and faunas
which have successfully clothed and
peopled the earth's surface. The direct value of geological work is now
fully reoognized, especially in all
branches of engineering, and is daily
applied not only to mining problems, but to many others, sucb as
water supplies, foundations for
bridges and large buildings, dams,
road construction and tbe like. The
object of tbe congress, therefore, wss,
briefly, the advancement of knowledge concerning the earth, both in
the field of pure geological science
and in ils application to tbe arts
and industries, through the association and co operation of the leading
geologists of all nations. These gieat
gatherings of distinguished scholars
bave greatly aroused interest in
geology on the part of private individuals, corporations and governments; given it a higher standing as
a science, and rendered possible its
increased economic application.
Geologists from every quarter ot
the globe made up Ihe parly of visitors to Grand Forks. Tbey may be
broadly classed as professors and
teachers from tbe leading colleges
and universities of tbe world,officers
of government geological surveys,
and geologists and mining engineers

Dwarfs
In the fresco ol the 'Vision ot the
Cross' in the Constaiitiniun room of
Uaphael's Stanze at the Vatican, one
ct the figures is a strange one to find
io the representation of such a solemn
subject. It is a very small dwarf,
wearing an enormous golden helmet
that would be more suitable to a
giant. To the modem mind this grotesque figure seems a jarring note in
a stalely composition, but there Js
no doubt that Raphael, who designed
the picture was justified by history In
introducing him, for it ls known that
Constantine was a connoisseur in
dwarfs and had one of whom he was
no higher than a partridge.
This curious taste for dwarfs dates
from early times; in the days of the
empire, from Augustus onwards, no
man of fashion felt Ills establishments
complete without at least one; their
drolleries und anllcs were found amusing and they were sometimes allowed
liberties denied (o others; the Emperor Tiberius for Instance, would allow
his dwarf to tell him truths that he
would submit to from no other. One
of lhe spectacles with which Domltian
regaled the people lu the circus was
a battle ot dwarfs.
Through lhe Middle Ages and the
Renaissance, the fashion of having
these unfortunate creatures attached
to courts and the establishments of
the pre at continued. Everyone knows
how in the palace of Mantua, built for
Isabella' D'Estc, there is a suite of
rooms for these tiny retainers, with
doors suitable only for their passage,
and In the pictures of Veronese, Man-
tegna, Valasqucz, and almost all the
great painters of the Renaissance we
find them portrayed. The dwarf who
served as model for Raphael in the
Constantine fresco belonged to the
pope nnd rivaled that of Constantine
in size or rather In the lack of it.
Remedy for Nose Bleeding
There are two little arleries which
supply the face with blood, one on
each side. These branch off from
the main arteries on each side of the
windpipe, and running upward toward
the eyes, pass over outside of the jawbone, about two-thirds of the way
back from tlie chin to the angle of
the jaw, under the ear. Now, suppose your nose bleeds by tho right
nostril; with the end of the forefinger
feel along the outer edge of the right
jaw untilyou feel the beating of the
artery direotly under your finger, the
same as the pulse In your wrist; then
press the finger hard upon it, thus
getting tb? little fellow in a tight place
between your linger and the jawbone.
The result will be that not a drop of
blood goes Into that side of the face
wWle the pressure continues; hence
the nose instantly stops bleeding for
wont o'f blood to flow, and the ruptured vessels lu the nose will probably by that time contract, no that when
you let th. blood into them Ihey will
not bleed. Bleeding from a cut or
wound anywhere about the face maybe stopped In the sani3 way.
MUST BE  POLITE
Sly dear, said the conscientious wife,
how can you make such statements?
What's wrong now? asked the man.
Before the children you told Mr. and
Mrs. Sayso, that when your grandfather got a cold In ills chest he would
cough so hard that his hair fell off.
Now, what sort of regard for truth
will our children have if they hear
their father telling such— But didn't
you know my grandfather wore a wig?
It used lo be said that variety is
the spice of life, but some play producers are trying hard to substitute
vulgarity for variety.

German Minister of Railways Instructs
Government Employees
The Prussian Ministry of Railways
has issued an ordinance requesting
the employees, especially their lady
employees to be more polite in their
intercourse with the public. Numerous complaints have reached the Ministry of short-comings in this respect
and the Ministry warns its servants
that If they do not turn over a new
leaf sterner measures will be taken.
. With regard to the ladies, their main-
faults appear to be too great an addle
fion to knitting, crocheting, and the
preparation of tea or coffee when tbe
public is Impatiently waiting to be
supplied with railway tickets.
ln busy times they are also loo apt
to lose their heads and to answer impatient travelers tactlessly.
Some years ago similar complaint
was made about the ladles employed
In the post offices and at the telephones', but energetic measures were
taken by the'Governnient to stop this
nuisance and lt has now become n
pleasure to transact business with female post office assistants.
Lady Farmer Raises Record Crop
Mrs. Annie E. Williams, of Gkich
en, Alberta, had a record 'flax crop
last year. She seeded (13.33 acres
and threshed 1,877 bushels—which Is
equivalent lo 29.63 bushels to lhe
acre. The significance of this will
be more readily appreciated when it
Is stated that the average yield per
acre last year in Alberta was 12.83,
in Saskatchewan, 12.56; In Manitoba,
13.39, In all Canada, 12.60, and in the
United States 9.90 bushels to the acre.
The variety which was gfown was
'Premost,' a new kind which hns heen
developed by the Dominion Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, and
which ripens from ten days to a fortnight earlier'than ordinary flax. The
record of the growth of this crop
shows that it was seeded April 16-18,
was une foot high and in bloom on
June 23rd. ripe on August 10th and
cut on August 27th. The germination
lest over seven days showed 96 per
cent.

-Met Her Match
A few days ago two young women
entered a trolley car and found only
standing room.
I'm toing to get a seat, said one
to her compan on.   Now, you see!
Selecting a .-edate looking gentleman, she walked up to him.
My dear Mr. Green, she exclaimed,
how delighted I a mto meet you. You
are almost a stranger. Will I accept
your seat? Well, I do feel tired, I admit.     Thank you so much.
The man arose. Sit down, Jane, my
girl, said he, as he courteously pointed
to the vacant seat. I don't often see
you out on a washing day. You must
feel tired, I'm sure. How Is your
mistress?
Embarrassing
This ls awkward. 1 flirted with n
young man at the seashore and we

Impurities of the Blood Counteract-
ed.—Impurities ln the blood come
from defects in the action of the liver.
They are revealed by pimples and unsightly blotches on the skin. They
must be treated Inwardly, and for this
purpose there is no more effective
compound to be used thnn Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills. They act directly on
the liver and by setting up healthy
processes have a beneficial effect upon
the blood, so that impurities are eliminated.

who enquired If it was not rather

BABY'S OWN TABLETS
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Nci medicine for little ones ls so

Tablets. They are guaranteed by a
government analyst to be absolutely
safe and besides that thousands of
mothers throughout the land praise
them as the only sure cure for childhood ailments. Concerning them
Mrs. Edward McDonald, Douglas-
town, Que., says: "I can highly recommend Baby's Own Tablets to any
mother who has a baby suffering from
constipation or. teething troubles."
The Tablets are sold by medicine
dealers or by mail at 25 cents a box

Healthy, babies don't cry nnd the
well-nourished baby that I- fed on
Grape-Nuts is never a crying baby.
Many babies who cannot take any
other food relish tlie perfect food,
Grape-Nuts, and get well.
My baby wns given up by three
doctors who saitl that the condensed
milk on which I had fed her hud ruined Ihe child's stomach. One of the
doctors told me thnt the only thing to
do would be to try Grape-Nuts, so I
got some and pi-cgai-cd ll oa follows:
I soaked; 1'4 tablespoonfuls In one
pint of cold water for half an hour,
then I strained off the liquid and mixed 12 tenspoonfuls nf this strained
Grape-Nuts Juice with six tenspoonfuls of rich milk, put ln n pinch of
snl: and a lltlle sugar, warmed It and
gave It to the baby every two hours.
In this simple, easy way I saved
baby's life and have built her up to
a strong, healthy child, rosy and
laughing. The food must certainly
be perfect to have such a
wonderful effect as this. I cnn
truthfully say I think it Is the best
food In the world to raise delicate
babies on and is also a delicious
healthful food for grown-ups as we
have discovered In our family."
Grape-Nuts Is equally valuable to
the strong, healthy man or woman.
It stands for the true theory ot health.

A Constant Change
In Body Tissues
"Our bodies," says Huxley, "may be
likened to an eddy in the river, which
retains its shape for a while, though
every instant each particle of water
ts changing."
The tissues of the body, composed
of millions of tiny cells, are being
constantly broken .down r.nd wasted away by the process of lite, and
especially by overwork, worry and
disease.
In order to reconstruct these wasted tissues there are necessary such
elements as Iron, sulphur, magnesia,
potash, etc., and when these are not
supplied in sullieient quantities In
the food we eat It is necessary to aid
nature by the use of some restorative
preparation.
Most people find Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food particularly effective under such
circumstances, because tt Is composed
of the very elements ot nature which
go to form new, rich blood, create new
nerve cells and rebuild wasted tlBsues.
This great food cure Is radically
different from medicines which are
usually employed in the treatment of
nervous diseases. For, while they
stimulate tired nerves to overexertion
or by narcotic Influence soothe and
deaden them, Dr. Chase's Nerve Food
revitalizes wasted nerve cells and so
accomplishes lastingly beneficial results.
Such symptoms as slcepleuess, Irritability, headache, indigestion, brain
tire and feelings of fatigue and discouragement soon disappear when the
system is built up by thamse of

Bailwiy is to see that all Its employees are physically healthy and clean and to this end It has
been deemed cipediont to establish a chain

only railroad corporation today which provide!

would bt able to give tho general publio tht
assurr.net that every employee had a physique

to a periodic medical tiamlnation, ami It
would Itself then be in a position to assume

FRIDAY,   AUGUST 22, 1913
Last week the people of tbis district rejoiced over the prospect that
tbe provincial government was
about to enforce tbe laws in tbe
Doukhobor colony. Tbis week tbey
are dejected, because the attempt
was made and it proved a failure
II tbe government intends to let the
matter drop at this stage, only
injury has been done to the people
of the district. Tbe officers bave
had a set-to witb tbe Doukhobors.
and the latter came out victorious
by long odds. This will inzrease
tbeir contempt for tbe law and the
authorities. It will til*o have a tendency to make tbem less desirable
neighbors, as their •arroeance increases with every success over tbe
government. If tbe administration
intends to make these people com
ply with tbe laws of the province, a
firm hand should be used. If tbis
can not be done, the citizens of this
district would much prefer to have
them left alone. Every attempt of
tbe government so far bas been a
farce. The report of the Doukho
bor commission was flagrantly
biased, and gave ihe inhabitants of
colony confidence in tbeir fancied supremacy; the fiasco last week started
with a melo-drama and ended with
ia a screaming farce-comedy. If
tbis kind of work is to continue,
for goodness sake let the Doukhobors
have tbeir own way. Every sue
ceeding meddling witb this matter
only leaves a stronger and more un
pleasant odor. A good Tory in this
oity lust week remarked, "The only
way to settle the Doukhobor question is to get a new government."
. We believe be was right.
The sensational story sent out
from thia city, and printed in a number of daily papers, this week regarding a pitched battle between tbe
provincial police and a troop of Doukhobor Amazons, was greatly overdrawn, and will do the district no
good. The encounter was not very
serious, and tbe police eay they
have no desire to. pose as tin hemes
by warring with women. Perhaps
the correspondent is not so modest,
and covets the title himself.
If a cause ean not triumph by
truth, it is better that it should perish than prove victorious with the
aid of falsehood Considered by this
principle, the story circulated in
city last Saturday to tbe effect tbat
the skull of tbe Doukhobor body ex
burned last week had been found
crushed in, disgustHd a great many
citizens, wbo are really desirous tbat
tbe laws should he enforced in the
colony.   As the ver lict of the cor

THE DANGER"
JDF^ANAEMIA
Consumption Ma; Follow Unless
Its Ravages Are Checked
There ls danger to every girl and
every woman who falls a victim to
anaemia—that is bloodlessness. They
become listless, feel too weak, too
wretched and too hopeless to take
prompt steps to stop the trouble. Too
often, through neglect, they drift into
a worse condition, forgetting that anaemia frequently leads on to consumption. If you are anaemic ln the least
degree you should lose no time in beginning treatment, to increase and en-
enrich the blood supply. To do this
there Is no other medicine so good as
Dr. Williams' Pink PIUs. Every dose
helps make rich, red blood, which
drives out disease and brings again
the bloom ot health to pale and sallow
cheeks. There are thousands of women and growing girls ln Canada who
owe their present good health to tho
timely use of Dr. Williams' Pink PIUs.
,/Vmong those who have bcen restored
to health by this great medicine Is
Miss Rose Neville, Mount Forest, Ont.,
who says: "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
performed almost a miracle in my
case. I was a victim of anaemia, in
what my friends considered a dangerous form. I was very pale, always
felt tired out, suffered from severe
headaches, and had no appetite. I
was taking doctor's medicine for a
long time—-In fact I tried two doctors
—hut instead ot Improving 1 seemed to
be growing worse. My parents were
at a loss to know -what"*to do for me
and thought-l would not recover. Then
a friend advised Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and 1 had only taken thein a few
weeks when I began to feel better.
This greatly encouraged me and I con-
tinutd taking the PIUs for some time
longer, and found my health again
as good as ever it had bcen. In tact
I am stronger than ever I was before.
I have advised the use ot Dr. Williams' Pink PIUs to other girls who
have found tho results equally beneficial."

The Town of Jump Off-
Two yenrs ngo I exhibited my moving pictures at tbe town of Jump OCT,
wblcb was founded as a future rival
of Chicago nud bad seven murders and
nine elopements the flrst year. When
I showed the picture of General Washington at Valley Forgo-emnclated,
starved, discouraged and almost ready
to trade American liidepcudcut-0 for a
pumpkin pie-there was a breathless
silence In the audience for a minute,
•ml then sobs and tears broke fortb
from every point of the hall. Men
•Abu hnd not shed a tear when their

•ud bud to be led from the hall and In

audience even booted me. I then at-
blblted a picture of Satan walking arm
ln arm wltb a Boston alderman thai
had sold his vote for $2,000, and tber*
was applause lasting seven minutes.
I Had Great Hopes.
The next pleture was Faith clinging
to Ibe cross. I had great hopes that
this would bring the audience back
Into the strntgbt and narrow path, but
was doomed to disappointment She
wns advised to go bome and go to
darning stockings, and when I wonld
have expressed  my surmise nt such
sacrilege some one threw a turnip and
hit ne on the jaw.
From thence on I exhibited only pic*
tures showing that tbe wages ot sin
are from four to ten dollars a day, with
board and washing and theater tickets
thrown ln, and tbe audience went wild
with enthusiasm. I could uot close my
eyes to tbe fact tbat tbe drift of the
times was toward wickedness and that
tbe traveling agents of family Bibles
must be living on onions and sleeping
ln fence corners.
Next day, while I was driving over
tbe blgbwny from Jump OH to Stop
Here, I met a cavalcade. My Innocent
face, venerable wbiskara and baa.*'
Ing insure me respect In most cases
tbe cavalcade removes Its hats and
bows low before me. ln tbls case as a
sign of ttae degenerncy of the times the
malcnde baited, and the leader asked
me what I would take for my whisk-
|»rs. I had not yet recovered from my
astonishment when another man dismounted and climbed up on the wheel
of my wagon and actually gave a tug
ut my whiskers to see lf they were'
false. Then tbey called me old man
and old boy and old hoss, und one of
them tried to spit tobacco juice ln my
fighting dog's eyes. As 1 drove on It
just did seem to me thnt the end of the
world wns at band. In Imagination I
could see the destruction of Sodom and
bear tbe yells of Its perishing Inhabitants,
A Spirit ef Levity.
I Having rouched tbe town itself, I observed that a spirit of levity and gay-
ety pervaded tbe place; but, though It
might be owing to tbe fact that tbere
was a man In town from Denver trying to sell folding bathtubs and hairbrushes. I opened my show by Introducing Pilgrim .Toe's Alternative, which
is n well known remedy for drawing
folks buck from tbe grave. I bnd
scarcely announced tbat tbe price still
remained 25 cents, notwithstanding tbe
panic, when a crowd began to hoot
In selling this alternative I usually tell
a little story. It Is about a fond mother whose sunny huh/cd little boy gets
In tiie wuy of a brick house and la
crushed to a pulp. The mother sits
grieving over the remains nntl walling
out tbat tbere is no more happiness
for ber on tbls earth when nu nngel
comes flying down wltb n bottle of my
justly celebrated remedy tn ber hand.
Sbe pnts tbo grieving mother on her
head and then sprinkles somo of tbe
alternative over the remains of the
child, in Ave minutes he Is chasing
grasshoppers and the mother Is laughing In glco and wonderlug wben tlie
next clrcuB will come along.
Seeing tbat tbe crowd at Stop Here
was a little out of bumor, I started
In to tell this story, but It brought missiles Instead or tears aud smiles.    A
i majority of those missiles collided with

These vibrations depend largely on

, Recently two extraordinary cases of
,-rery numerous offspring in the same
family were recorded in the Knglish
cress, and these attracted -great attention at the time. One was that ot

|who can boast a family of no fewer
than twenty-nine "little" ones, though
these are by t-vo mothers, the present
Mrs. Rog.rs being the second wife ol

[The proud father, aged seventy-four;
; might have been seen carrying his latest infant to its baptism a week or

due honor to the occasion.

showing  that  even  in  this  age   of
