Seven Thousand Coal Miners
Will Return to Work
Within a Week
A brief telegram was.received in this city this morning stating that a settlement
Lad been reached in the strike
of the Crow's Nest Pass coal
miners, and that the agree:
ment had been signed by both
parties.
A Lethbridge dispatch to
the Nelson Daily News says
that a settlement was reached
after a conference lasting all
yesterday, the miners and the
operators getting together
through the efforts of Hon.
Mr. Rogers. Within-a week,
it is expected, the mines Will
be in full running order, and
the 5640 union men who * quit
work at midnight on the '31 st
day of March last, and the
1500 non-union men whose
occupation ceased with the
commencement of the strike
will again find employment.
The basis of settlement, according to the Lethbridge dis
patch, is the Gordon award as
to wages, the recognition of
the check-off system, some
slight changes in the wage
schedule, chielly regarding
contract work, and an agreement for a period of two
years.
The settlement of the strike,
which has lasted nearly seven
months, brings to an end one
of the sternest fought conflicts
between labor uuionists and
employers which British Columbia has ever seen. The
strike was oae which att'ccte i
directly or indirectly many
hundreds of thousands of persons iu British Columbia- and
the prairie provinces.
In the in,mediate strike zone a
serious business depression followed
the closing of the mines, and Ih ■
il predion was felt in a greater or
less degree over a very widely extended urea.
In the Boundary the mining and
smelting industry was one of the
heaviest losers through the closing
of llm minis and the increase in the
price of tuel which resulted Ir nn
cuke having to he brought from
Pennsylvania, and many men were
thrown out of employment-US a consequence. The cost of coke laid
down here from the east was $12
per ton, compared wilh less than $6
per ton paid for fuel from the affected district. The Granby smelter and mines were compelled to
close down owing to this enormous
increase in the cost of operation. Al
though the Trail smelter and the
llritish Columbia Copper company's
smelter continued in operation
throughout the seven month.*, it waa
only hy a cuitailment of production
from the  mines wii.b   which   they
were connected and at nn enormous
cost to the two companies  that tbe i
furnaces were kept in operation.
In Nelson and throughout the
country relying for its coal upon
District No, 18, whioh produced
about 12,000 tonB per day, the cost
of fuel to the consumer was very
heavily increased, and in some cases
actual coal famines have been reported. ,::... r /.'.
Placing the increased average eost
to ihe consumer at the low estimate
of #2.60 per ton, the people of the
district affected have paid $6,000,-
000 more for their fuel than under
normal conditions. And the greater
proportion ol this $6,000,000 has
gone to the railroad companies, as
the higher cost of the coal imported
from Montana, Pennsylvania, Vancouver island other collieries has
been in nearly every case attributable to the transportation charges.—

The City Council
The regular by weekly meeting of
the city council was held ob Monday evening, the mayor and Aid.
Bonthron, DowBey, Davis and Lequime being present.
W. K. C. Manly made an offer of
$300 for the lot ou tbe east side of
the Miners' Union hall, on Second
street.   Tbe offer was accepted.
A resolution was adopted requir
ing the owners of all hogs now kept
iu the cily limits to remove them
out of the corporate limits within
leu days from the service of  notice.
Property owners near the river
< in First street made strong objec
tions to tbe present plans of lbe
proposed First street bridge. It appears that tbe provincial government is accustomed to construct all
its bridges eight feet above high
watermark, and the plana for tbe
First street bridge were drawn in
conformity to tbis rule. Tbis would
raise the bridge eight feet above tbe
level of the street, necessitating a
long approach, and iri consequence
damaging abutting property lo a
certain extent. The cily is endeuv
airing lo induce the government lo
lower the biiilgu lo street giade.

. Hon. Martin Burrell returned at 1:30 this afternoon
from Ottawa, where he had
beeu for the purpose of being
sworn in as minister of agriculture. When he alighted
from the train at the C.P.R.
station an immense concourse
of citizens, including the
Grand Forks brass band, was
assembled on the platform to
greet him. The business
houses were closed from 12 to
3 in order to afford everybody
an. opportunity to pay their
respects to the new cabinet
minister.
After greeting his numerous
friends, a procession of gayly
decorated automobiles and
other vehicles was formed,
and, headed by the band, a
march was made to the school
house, where brief exercises
were held.
Mayor Gaw made a short
speech of welcome, iu which
he congratulated Mr. Burrell
on his elevation to the cabinet and assured him'of the
high esteem in which he was
held by his fellow-citizens.
At the conclusion of his remarks, the mayor presented
the minister with an address

There has been a lively
boom in West end real estate
during the past week.
J." A. McCallum, who besides being C.P.R. land agent
in this city.does a general real
estate business in city property and farm lands, during
the past few days has sold all
the acre lots, comprising nineteen parcels, in the C.P.R.
subdivision on Winnipeg avenue. He has also sold thirteen lots near the C.P.R. station. The total amount, of
his sales aggregate about
$6000. Mr. McCallums has
now orders for a number of
five-acre tracts of fruit land
which he is unable to fill at
present, but expects to be in
a position to accommodate
his customers next week.
Neil McCallum reports the
sale of ttiree lots near the C.
P.R. station. He states that
every lot in the block south
of the Pacific hotel has now
been sold.
The Boundary Trust & Investment company sold two
three-acre tracts of land opposite the school house during the week.
A large percentage of the
investors in West end realty
are C.P.R. employees. This
tends to confirm the report
which has been circulated (luring the past two or three
weeks to the effect that Grand
Forks has been selected as a
divisional point on the C.P.R.
and the Kettle Valley line.
A gentleman well up in the
railway service stated to The
Sun man yesterday that he
expected to see work started
on the shops here within three
weeks.

Fenwick could have cried aloud
had he been physically able to do
so. There was no reason for a light
to be struck or the gas to be lighted
so that he might see the face of the
speaker. Indeed, he recognized the
voice far too well lor that. A moment later he was gazing at the impassive lace of Felix Zary.
"You did not expect to see me,"
the latter said. "Yjou were under the
impression that you were going to
get away from me. Never did man
make a greater mistake. It matters
little what you do, it will matter nothing to you or anybody else in twelve
hours from now. Do you realize the
fact that you have but that time to
live?   Do you understand that?"
"You would murder me?" Fenwick
said hoarsely.
"You may calm yourself on that
score. You are unarmed, and I have
not so much as a pocket knife in my
possession. I shall not lay a hand
upon you—I shall not peril my soul
for the sake of a creature like you.
There are other ways and other methods of which you know nothing."
"How did you get here?" Fenwick
asked hoarsely. "How did you put
that dread thing on my table?"
Zary smiled in a strange, bland
fashion. He could have told Fenwick
prosaically what a man with a
grasp like his could do with a water
pipe. He could have told, also, how
he had dogged and watched hia victim within the last few hours, with
the pertinacity of a bloodhound. But
Zary could see how Fenwick was
shaken and dazed by some terrible
thing which he could not understand.
It was no cue of Zary's to enlighten
the miserable man opposite.
"There are things utterly beyond
your comprehension." he said, calmly. "If you look hack to the past
you will remember how we laid our
mark upon the man who stole the
Four Finger Mine. That man, I need
not say, was yourself. To gain your
ends you did not scruple to take the
life of your greatest friend, the greatest benefactor you ever had. You
thought the thing out carefully. You
devised a cunning scheme whereby
you might become rich and powerful
at tha expense of George Le Fenu,
and scarcely was the earth dry upon
his coffin before your warnings came.
You knew the legend of the Four Finger Mine and you elected to defy it.
A week went by, a week during which
you took the gold from the mine, and
all seemed well with you. Then you
woke one morning to find that in the
night you had lost your forefinger
without the slightest pain and with
very little loss of blood. That was
the first sign ot the vemeance of the
genius of the mine. Shakened and
frightened as vou were, you hardened
your heart, like Phnrnoh of old, nnd
determined to continue. Another
week passed, and yet another finger
vanished in the same mysterious
fashion. Still, you decided to stand
the test, nnd your third warning
enme. With the fourth warning, your
nerves utterly gave way. and you
fled from the mine with less ill-gotten gain than you had expected. It
matters nothing to me whnt followed
afterwards, hut you will admit thnt
nt the present moment you have not
benefited much by you crime. I
hn"e nntliine more to sny to you. I
only enme here tonight iust to prove
to you h"w iinnaissil.il' it is for you
to hide from the vengeance of the
mine. In your Inst bitter moments
I wnnt you to think of my worcU nnd
renlize "
As Znry spnk" lm moved neross the
room in the direction of the gns bracket; he lni'l his bin'! upon the tan.
nnd n moment Inter the room wns in
darkness. There wns n sound like
Ihe slidina of n window, followed by
n sudden rush of cold nir nnd by the
time thnt Fepwiek hnd found his
pintches nnd lighted the gns imam
there wns not so much n« a trnce of
Znrv lo be seen.
"I wish I hmln'l thrown nwny the
key ot thnt oupbnr*>d." Fenwick snid
hoarsely. "I would rive,half I posses fir onaa .Iron of brnn.lv now.
Still. I won't rive in, I won't he bent-
en by lhe* tellow. At nnv rate, he
enn't nossihlv know wnnt I intend to
do. He could not know that I shall
be on bonrd n vessel b»fore morning."
Hnlf an hour Inter Fertwiek left the
house n"d mnde his wav straight, to
the Docks. At n public-house hnrd
by he obtnined the hrnpdv thnt ne
pawled lO.hndly, nnd felt n little
stiffened nnd brneed up by the spirit.

inun'v drunk, but not nuite so intoxi-
cnted tbnt he could not see the business side of a hnrunin.
"Oh. vnn wnnf, fn «n nni .''ith me.

Iv enoimh managed. We've «*ot no
pnasenrers on bonrd, nod voi'*ll hav>
to rough it with the rest ot us. 1
don't ."'ml taking you on for fifty
pounds."
"That's a lot of money," Fenwick
protested.
The black-bearded skipper winked
solemnly at the speaker.
"There's always a risk in dealing
with stolen goods," he said. "Besides, fifty pounds isn't much for a
man who wants to get out of the
country as badly as I see you do, and
once I have passed my word to do it,
I'll see you safe through, and so will
my crew, or I'll know the reason
why. Now, my yellow pal, fork out
that money, and in half an hour you'll
be as safe as if you were on the
other side of the herring-pond and
not a policeman in London will know
where to find you. Now, is it a bargain, or not?"
Fenwick made no further demur;
he accepted the conditions there and
then. There was nothing to be gained by affecting to pose as an honest
man, and he was a little frightened
to find how easily this drunken ruffian had spotted him for a, fugitive
from justice.
"I can't give you the money just
now," he whispered. "I've got it
concealed about me, and to produce
a lot of cash in a mixed company
like this would be too dangerous."
The skipper nodded and proposed
further refreshment. Fenwick agreed
eagerly enough; he was feeling desperate now, and he did not Beem to
care much what happened. He could
afford to place himself entirely in the
hands of the black-bearded skipper,
who would look after him closely for
his own sake. After all said and
done, he had no cause to doubt the
honesty of the seaman, who appeared
to be fairly popular with his companions and well known in the neighborhood. It was the best part of an
hour before the commander of the
barque staggered to his feet and announced in an incoherent voice that
it was time to get aboard. Presently
they were straggling down to tbe
dock, Fenwick propping up his companion and wondering if the latter
was sober enough to find his way to
his ship. The skipper stumbled down
a flight of stepB and into a roomy
bont. which was prevented from capsizing by something lik» a miracle.
Presently they enme alongside tbe
black hull of a vessel, and Fenwick
found himself climbing up n greasy
ladder on to a dirty deck, wbere two
seamen were passing the time playing
n game of cards. Down below, the
skipper indicated a stuffy little bunk
leading out of his own cabin, which
he informed Fenwick would be placed
at his disposal for the voyage.
"If you don't mind I'll turn, in
now." the latter said. "I'm dead
tired and worn out. My nerves are
all jumping like red hot wires. Do
you think I shall be sate here?"
"Safe as houses!" the skipper snid.
"And, besides, we shall be dropping
down the river in about an hour."
Just as he was, Fenwick rolled into
the bunk, and In a moment was fast
asleep. When he came to himself
again, the vessel was pitching and
rolling; he could hear the rattling
creak of blocks and rigging; there
wns a sweeter and fresher atmosphere
in the little cabin. A sense of elation possessed the fugitive. It seemed to him that he was absolutely
safe at last. The skipper had evidently gone on deck after having
finished his breakfast, for the plates
lay about the table, and some tepid
coffee in a tin had apparently been
left for the use of the passenger.
"I don't think much of this," Fenwick muttered. "Still, I daresay I
can better it if I pay for it. I'll go
on deck presently and see what tue
black-beamed pirate has to say. At
any rate, 1 am absolutely sale now,
and cun afford to laugh at the
tureats of Felix Zaiy.   if that man
minks "
Fenwick paused, and the knife and
fork he was holding over the cold
bacon fell from his hands, lt was
too cruel, tbe iiony of Fate was too
bitter, for there, juat in front of him,
propped up by the sugar basin, was
a cabinet photograph of the very man
who was uppermost in his thoughts,
it was Felix Zary to the life; the
same calm, philosophic features, the
same great round eyes like those of
a Persiun cat. It all came back to
Fenwick now, the whole horror of
the situation. His head whirled, and
spots seemed to dance before his eyes;
a string snapped somewhere in his
bruin. Zary was behind him, he
thought, close behind him like an
avenging fury.
Willi a horrid scream. Fenwick
tumbled up the stairs on to thc slip-
|.cry deck. All round him wus a
wild waste of white waters. The ship
heeled over as Fenwick darted to the
side.

CATTLE PLENTIFUL
Alberta Still  Retains  Har Ranching
Features.
Alberta is a greater cattle country
now than it ever was in the old ranching days. Surprising though it may
seem, thia statement is borne out by
statistics which show that the pro-,
vince last year exported more beet
man in any previous year in its history.
Unce upon a time all that Alberta
had in the way ol industries was the
Eur trade. Then tbe country became
the mecca ol cattle and horse ranchers, finally the ranchers were crowded
out in moat purts and the cry was
raised that the ranching industry was
killed.
In 1906 the ranchera of the province sold off their surplus stock and
a general clean-up waa observed
throughout the cattle country. Men
with great herds of cattle sold almost
every hoot; other men with iust as
big ranches cut down the number ol
their herds so as to be able to run
them on tneir restricted ranges.
, The homesteader hod come in and
taken up (he ranch country, he had
broken tae ground and planted wheat,
he had brought a few cows. The big
ranchers declared tne cattle industry
was dead, the range was gone, the
herds were gone, and the cattle could
not be raised. In 1906 the ranchers
made their big sale, 114,000 head in
all. The rancbes were swept clean ol
almost everything saleable.
The two following yeara the cattle
shipments were low. a.,000 in 1908 and
80,000 head in 1907. Then came 1909
when the homesteaders began to have
something to turn off themselves. The
total of the cattle shipments oi that
year was 127,000 head, more than the
big year when the ranges were cleaned
IP to. 1906. But the increase did-not
atop in 1909. The small farmers' output was increasing and in 1910 the
total number of beet cattle sold in
the province ol Alberta wu 1M.O00
need.
it ia declared by those who thoroughly understand the cattle business
that it ia but now in its infancy.
There will come a time not far distant
when Alberta will be supplying hundreds of thousands ot head ol beef to
the markets oi the world, aa even
better grade than those that were fat-
tened on the ranges by the big ranch-
era. In the old daya a beet steer waa
allowed to range until tat. In the
tall he was in good shape and was
turned oil ior sale. There was no grain
leeding. Even the spring cattle that
were sold were fattened simply on
hay. But Alberta beef, with its simple method oi improvement, waa good
beef and waa desired on the markets.
Now a great deal oi the rattle that
are sold are irom small farmers, men
with live or ten or fifteen head to
sell in a year. These animals are
ted the winter around, they are taken
up and grain fed ior market, the
grade of Alberta beei is going up. It
nas been proven that the small farmers are bringing more wealth to Alberta than the big cattle ranches, and
the cattle industry, at one time four
or five years ago pessimistically declared to be dead, haa proven to ba
simply in an infant state oi development with every prospect of becoming
one oi the greatest industries oi the
province, second only to the raising
oi grain.
The official figures ior the live stock
shipments and sales ol Alberta since
1906 are:—
1905—Cattle, 83.000; horses, 12,000;
sheep, 40,000; hogs, 24,000; export beei,

DR. CHASES OINTMENT
To people who have used internal
treatment in an effort to cure ecsema
it is almost beyond beliei what benefit can be obtained by a lew applications oi this soothing, healing ointment.
It is seldom that the cause oi ec-
zema can be determined, but one
thing is certain, the itching must be
stopped and the sores healed up.
These results are secured by the use
oi Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment. The
itching is relieved almost instantly,
and you will be surprised at the healing which will take place overnight.
A little patience and persistent
treatment with Dr. Chase's Ointment
will give you more practical and definite results than a whole lot of dosing
with internal medicines. You can see
how the Ointment heals. The other is
guesswork.
Mr. Geo. Peterson, South Bay, Ont.,
writes: "I wish to communicate to
you the great benefit I received from
using Dr. A. W. Chase's Ointment.
For years I suffered with a great skin
disease on my head, a sort of eczema.
I tried four doctors, giving each a fair
trial, but got no better. In fact, the
disease spread to my left arm.
"I saw Dr. Chase's Ointment advertised and began using it. Persistent
use of this treatment has entirely cured me, and I give you a statement oi
my case with pleasure, as I hope
thereby to induce some other sufferer
to try the same Dr. Chase's Ointment."
Because this ointment has made
its world-wide reputation by curing
the most severe and long-standing
cases of eczema and piles is no reason
why you Bhould overlook its scores of
uses in the relief oi itching and irritation of the skin.

C. P. R. Report
A glance at the report of the Canadian Pacific Railway for the year ending June 30th, 1911, shows how rapidly
thia railway is covering Canada with
its network .of steel rails. The report
of the roud for the year 1910 puts the
actual C. P. R. mileage at 10,270.6,
and the mileage under construction n,t
471.4 miles. This year's report shows
that the actual mileage of the Company has advanced to 10,480.9 miles
and that it has 98.3.3 miles oi new
track under contraction. This means
that the C. P. R. hits under construction almost three miles of track for
every working day in the year.
While most of the new track is, of
course, being laid west of Winnipeg,
there are also a number of new extensions being built in Eastern Canada. The new grain route from Victoria Harbor to Bothany, being the
largest of these extensions under con
struction. In Western Canada, the
Saskatchewan Division of the road
will construct the greatest amount of
new track. Here the C. P. R. has
under construction 626.5 miles, distrib.
uted as follows: Moose Jaw, southwesterly 38 miles; Outlook to Ker-
robert, 102.4 miles; Kerrobert, northeast 25 miles; Forward, westerly 46
miiea; Estevan to Forward, 56 miles;
f"raven to Bulyea, 21 miles; Regina to
Colonsay, 133.1 miles; Swift Current,
southeast 45 miles; Wilkie to Anglia,
31 miles; Wilkie, northwest 32 miles.
On the Alberta Division, construction work is going on ns follows
Irricana, east 36.7 miles; Bassano to
junction, with Kininvie, northwest
35.5 miles; Swift Current, northwest
35 miles; Carmangay to AUlersyde,
56.3 miles; Galloway to Waldo, 13.4
miles; Castor, east 60 miles.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27,  l»ll
The news that the labor
troubles in the Crow's Nest
Pass cnal fields have been
adjusted will be hailed with
delight by everybody. The
hope is expressed that similar
strife will not again disorganize the industries of the country. Although Grand. Forks
has not suffered as much by
the strike as some of the ether
towns in the district, it is a
great relief to know that the
trouble is over. It is a high
recommendation to the stability of this city to be able to
state that a six months' closedown of the Granby smelter
lias not dimmed her prosperity.        	
■ Thk fruit growers of thc
Kettle have marketed their
crops, and all they have to do
between now and next fall is
to spend their profits. They
are more fortunate than thc
publishers of weekly papers.
The latter have to work at
least one day each week.
Annual Shoot for Prizes
The annual prize shoot ol the
Kettle River Valley Rifle association
will he held at the buns hack of the
smelter next Monday and Tuesday,
Octoher 8').and 31. A large nuinher
of valuahle prizes have been donated
by the citizens, and keen contestB
are anticipated. The association
now has 72 members, and is in a
robust condition.
DIED
Miss Elizabeth Scoley, of Naliion,
•B.C., who has been employed as a
nurse at the Cottage hospital for
ahout a year, died at the hospital at
11 o'clock on Thursday night of
typhoid fever. She wits about 21
yenrs of age. Mr. Scoley, father of
deensed, arrived in the city today,
and is milking arrangements for the
funeral, which will ho held at '2:30
next Monday afternoon.

Tin Junna. Mexico, a distance of
20.19 miles. The scheme fuvored by
ihe highway enthusiasts is the build
ing nf the Pacific highway through
Bii.ish Columbia, via Hnzulton, and
on to the Yukon. The extension of
the Canadian highway'with the in
teiitinn aif eventually making it n

The Bsautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers
thia Season.   c^4n Inspiration of Love and
Affection—zj4. Picture (hat will be like a
Member  of  the  Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
'PHE Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to he
| the greutest and hest family and farm paper on the continent, has on
many occasions given its readers most delinhtful | wuium pictures,
but this season they have secured what is bevond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper r. ad-r. It ia entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching hut joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. .   .
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winner
of many prizes at dog snows, the pride ol the family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, and after Inany days' absence he escapes one night from
his enptor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in bis struggles for freedom dangling from bis collar.
His familiar bark brings hia little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
ahe throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" ia equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, which in bis dog language means—"Wliere I love is Home."
Tbe sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—tbe two glad eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and thc quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate, arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on trie walls ot any home.
The picture ia by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Horns Again" on heavy plate paper 22x'2D
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FKRK tp every Bllbioriber of
The Sim and Family Herald and Weekly Star fiir 1912.
The small sum of $1,60 will secure the two papers for a full year in-
eluding a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
easily worth a two dollar hill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.
Kvery home in the Houndnry should get the big $1.50 worth this

PEOPLE OF GRAND FORKS BENEFITED
H. E. Woodland, of thli oity, has
with characteristic enterprise, demonstrated hia ability to keep wall
abreast of .the times by connecting
himself witb the largest druggists'
co operation in America. The men
connected with tbis enterprise do a
yearly business aggregating over
175,000,000, which well emphasizes
iU soundness and magnitude.
Nearly five thouaand retail drug-
at actual cost of manufacture, plus a
single retail profit.
One notioeable feature of the bus-
ness, and a very commendable one.
is tbat no one remedy manufactured
by this company is a "cure-all.''
Each one of the many different
remedies is a known and dependable treatment for a particular ailment. The confidence of the druggists interaated in thia enterprise is
gists throughout tbe United States unquestionably    demonstrated   by
•nd Canada   bave organized tbem-, thia guarantee, which is printed on
selves as a co operative company for
tha purpose of producing a line of
medic*il preparations wbich tbey
recommend, absolutely guarantee
and back up with their own names
aud personal reputations. The formulas of theae remedies are thoroughly known to every one of tbese
druggists and the ingredients of eacb
will be truthfully described to the
public and the remedies sold wilh
the distinct understanding tbat tbeir
purohase price will be instantly refunded without question or quibble
if tbey fail ro benefit the user. Tbis
means that tbe publio is sole jury
and judge.
Different formulas were turned
over to the company from most reliable sources. Eaoh formula being
selected because of ita tested and
proved value and established reputation, gained through continued
and successful use in a high average
of vases.
A research committee of chemists
and physicians made a moat tbor
ougb and exhaustive test of each
one of these prescriptions until they
h id selected a very large list as being
of tbe very beBt and most dependable known to medical science, each
(.ii the treatment and relief of a particular ailment.
These remedies are now manufactured by the company, whioh is
known as the United Drug Co., Boston, Mass , in one of tha largest,
must modern and bast equipped
pharmaceutical laboratories in
America.
The tremendous output of this
coinpany enables it to purchase
drugs, herbs and other necessary
material in very large quantities.
The co-operation and professional
advice of nearly 5000 leading druggists guarantees tbe high quality of
everything used and guarantees thst
only formulas of known merit art.

products.
Tbe preparations of the company
are shipped direct to the retail druggists who are connected with the enterprise. Thus their absolute freshness is asaured, it is almost impossible fur their quality to deteriorate,

every package: "The Uuitad Drug
Co., and The Rexall Store selling
this preparation guarantee it to give
satisfaction. If it doea not, go back
to tbe atore wbere you bought it and
get your money—it belongs to you,
and we want you to have it."
This is certainly an innovation
that must appeal to tbe people of
Qrand Forks. It insures safety and
satisfaction because our own local
druggist, Mr. H. E. Woodland, wbo
is so well known and highly respected for his integrity, is connected
witb this enterprise and is staking
his own personal reputation on the
quality of these remedies, and tbe
yery frankness with whicb ha takes
tha people of Grand Forks into his
confidence insures an unprecedented success for these remedies, which
are sold under the trade name
Rexall, which means King-of-AU.
From reports coming from hundreds
of towns and cities, tbe Rexall Remedies are certainly demonstrating
tbeir full title to tbe name.
Tbose wbo have previously refused to buy proprietary medicines
because tbaie was no way of ascertaining their ingredients, can now
purchase Rexall Remedies, the formulae of which they can have for
the asking. Besides, ihey are sold by
a concern personally known to you
and located right here in our own
city, who guarantees that they are
in every way as represented or tbey
will cost nothing.
Rexall Or.lerl es are one of these
remedies. They are lor the treat
ment of constipation in every form,
excepi it be of a surgical nature.
They are eaten like candy and do
not cause griping excessive looseness or other annoyances whatever.
Tbey come in three s zes, ten,
twenty five and fifty cents.
Mr. H. E Woodland is so well
and favorably known fur his sterling honesty and square dealing that
we predict a great success fur bim
with tbe Rexall Remedies, and he is
to he heartily congratulated in
bringing this great and modern
business enterprise tu Qrand Folks.
We urge all who may be in need
uf prepared medicines tu cull on Mr.
li. E. Woodland and learn ubout
the Uexall Remedies. Enterprise of
this sort should be encouraged.

and care and the extra care left over
from tbe ewes. Tbls Is a trying time
for tbe little lambs, and unless tbey

by filling tbelr stomachs tbey will grow
thinner Instead of fatter.
Save tbe fresb. choice pasture plots
for them. If possible turn tbem Into
tbe dooryard lo the evening. Save
tbe sei-ond cuttings of tbe clover meud-

on to a small patch of clover and let
them mow that down. It Is better to
grow lambs fat now and tell tbem ou

A Bright Boy
In most regular lines of work the
old hands usually try to ploy some
joke on each new boy that starts in at
thc business. That bank clerks are
no exception to this rule was indicated by a joke played on the new
"junior" in a bank in Collingwood,
snys an eastern exchange.
The youngster was sent out to n
merchant to collect two dollars on a
draft, and he got back to the bank
with two American silver dollars.
"Where did you get those cart-
wheels?" nsked the collection clerk.
"Don't you know that they're worth
only forty-eight cents each?"
The boy looked badly scared.
"Better take them to the accountant," said the collection clerk. "But
I guess he can't do anything for you.
"No, only worth lorty-eight cents
each," suid the accountant.
The boy was still more frightened so
he took the big silver pieces home, intending to turn in two bills if he could
persuade his lather to let him have
the bills. ,
Next morning the youngster turned
in two Canadian bills. He had a big
parcel under his arm, and he proudly
exhibited to the clerks a great collection of tics, stockings, and other
things to wear.
"Say," he said with a smile. I
put a good one over on that storekeeper down the line. I got him to give
me two dollars' worth ol stuff for
those old cart-wheels."

Blaming the Reporter
There is a certain kind of humor
which wins its way more surely than
any other policy. Sir John Macdonald was a master in its use, and seldom resorted to it in vain. On one
occasion Sir John delivered an address, which, for some mysterious reason, was slightly incoherent. The following day, a newspaper man called I
on him and diffidently showed him '
certain notes which he had taken of
the speech.
Sir John surveyed the notes Ior a
moment and then turned to the reporter in a kind and fatherly manner.
"Young man, will you let me give
you a word of advice?"
"Certainly, Sir John," said the flattered scribe.

GOT CABINET OF SILVER
MONTREAL MEN RECOGNIZE GEO.
H ADR ILL'S SERVICES.
Well-Kncwn Citiien"Who Haa Far
Twenty-Five Years Been Secretary
of tha Beard el Trads In Thst City
Came ta Canada From England In
74 and Has Had a Brilliant Oarssr
as Promoter of Trade Relations.
In order to get a cabinet of •liver-
ware, all you nave to do Is to icrve
acceptably twenty-five years as secretary oi tke Montreal Board ot Trade.
Then the members oi the executive
and the put presidents of the board
will read you a nice little letter ol
congratulation and hand you a ma*
hogsny cabinet about il ft. x 11-8 x 1
It., weighing fifty pounds or more,
lull oi silverware, spoons and knivei
and forks of such variety of use and
beauty of design, that you will need
a book to tell you what to do with
them and a butler to look after them
far you.
Thus it was twit Mr. George Hadrill
received ths casket of silverware Which
waa given him upon the completion
of his first quarter-century of service
aa secretary lor the Montreal Board
ol Trade.  The secretary Is extremely
Srond, both of the congratulatory ad-
ress and the package of cutlery, only
It Is hard to say which he regards
moat highly.   It has a real existence.

and at a pinch could be boiled down
and converted Into silver bsrt or even
Into coin of the realm, if one had access to a few nice dies or moulds,
Hadrill places a high value on his
box of silver, so high a value that
he keens it locked up In a safety
vault down town rather thsn take
any chances on having Is carried
away from his Dorchester street residence which, during the dug days, li
almost deserted tor the more pleasing Laurentian Mountains. Nevertheless, he places a high value also on
the sentiments expressed by the officials who made him thc presentation,
land although silver cutlery will be
t.ie cause of much sstisfaction at the
many little dinners which he presides
over, the congratulatory address will
be with him always and can never be
an object ot attraction to those who
break through and steal.
It is now some thirty-seven years
since Hr. Hadrill first came to Canada, although it was not until three
years alter his first arrival that he
entered the service of the Montreal
board of Trade, he having spent two
y -srs ot the interval in England. Three
years after he joined the Board of
Trade he was made assistant secretary. This was in 1880. He filled this
position for six yeara, and upon the
death oi the former secretary succeeded to his position.
He is an Englishman by birth, having been born in London in 1848, bnt
thare are lew men ot sixty-three years
of age who carry their years so easily.
He possesses unusual qualifications
ior his position which calls lor a display of diplomacy, tact and social
qualities, as well as for purely business ability.
As these are duties which the average business man knows little enough
about. It may well be imagined thet
the board, lor the most part. Is very
well pleaaed to leave the principal de.
tails in Mr. Hadrill's charge.
That the Montreal Board ol Trade ii
recognised as one of the largest, most
influential and most important organ*
ixations in Canada ii due not only to
the ability ol the varioue offloer who
have served on Its board, but perhaps
more particularly to the ability, tact
and courtesy ol Its secretary .—Saturday Night.

CANADA'S FIRST CLUB.
Neethaasst   Trading   Oompany   HeM
Merry  Meetings.
A wealth .of romance and historical
association is clustered around the
flrst Social Club of Canada, for it
waa founded by the pioneers of the
fur trade in 1786 at Montreal, the
headquarters ot the Northwest Fur Co.
It waa called tha Beaver Club. Just
where this club was situated it is hard
to say, although searched for diligently. Many of the writers on the history of the Northwest Fnr Co. mention
the club, but all omit to aay where it
was.
The club waa practically the outcome of the newly organised
Northwest Fur Co., which had
bean started in 1783, for after the
Conquest the lur trade fell into the
hands of British subjects, and many
small companies, aa well as private
enterprises, were formed. This,' ol
oourse, led to a number of abuses.
To remedy these several ol the principal merchants oi Montreal formed
themselves into a joint-stock company
under the name of the Northwest Fur
Co.) and entered the field against a
formidable foe, the Hudson Bay Co.,
which had obtained its charter in the
year 1S70 from King Charles.
The partners oi this new company
felt the need during the long winter
months of having a club where they
could meet each other and talk over
their experiences in the north, and so
the Beaver Club was inaugurated by
them. It opened with nineteen members, all belonging to the Northwest
Fur Co. which had been organised
two years previous. The motto of thc
club was "Fortitude in Difficulties."
What better! Had they not passed
through perils of rushing rapids? Had
they not often in a blinding snowstorm lost their way and all but perished? Famine they had known, battles with Indians or some rival company, and in summer had often fled
from forest fires.
At the annual meeting ol the partners at the Grand Portage, they arranged the number of wintering partners to go to Montreal, but the number was never to exceed five. Those
who spent the winter in the woods
were known as the "winterers," while
those who only made the trip trom
Montreal to the outlying depots and
return were called "pork eaters," be-
cause their pampered appetites demanded peas and pork, rather than
hulled corn and tallow,
Tha rules of the club were such as
to keep it exclusive, lor no one was
admitted as a member of this unique
club who had not made a journey to
the Northwest, and passed a winter
there; nor was this in itself sufficient; the would-be members must also have the unanimous vote of the
members belonging to the club. Later,
new members were only admitted if
they had passed through the various
positions in the company, such as ap
prentice-clerk, clerk, winter partner,
and a certain number were admitted
as honorary members. One ot the
rules was that the members who were
in town must be present at the inaugural dinner, which was held on
the first Wednesday in December. The
members met fortnightly until April,
and every member waa obliged to be
present unless ill, at each meeting,
and no entertainments ware permitted
at any of their houses on club nights.
There were five club toasts which were
compulsory; after these were drunk,
members were at liberty to leave ii
they wished to.
Seldom did the members meet without entertaining some of the many distinguished travelers who at this time
were coming to Canada. Probably it
was the first time these guests were ottered such entertainment. Their feasts,
for the table was literally laden with
such good things as haunches ol venison and bear, beaver's tails, pemmi-
can, buffalo's tongues, imitated as far
as possible the fashion ol their annual
great gatherings at Fort William on
Lake Superior. After dinner, the calumet waa passed, and tben began the
evening's merriment.
One of the members, who had previously been appointed, spoke of some
of the many incidents which had happened to them in the far north. Then
as the evening grew, the songs of the
Voyageurs, those gay lilting French
songs would ring out, "Malbrouk s'en
va-t-en guerre," or "A la Claire Fontaine."
Remember, five toasts—and others-
had been drunk, when they were pre-
pared to make "th* grand voyage."
This "grand'voyage" waa to remind
them of their former experience, and
to show the guest how it was accomplished. "Partners, factors and traders, in the sight of all the Servants jr
voyageurs who happened to gain admittance, engaged in the 'grand voyage,' which consisted in all seating
themselves in a row, on the ' h carpet, each armed with tong... poker,
sword, or walk.ig stick to serve as a
Saddle," which they used vigorously,
i the accompaniment oi a voyageur's
song.
Gilbert snd Sullivan.
Questions have often been asked as
to Uie real cauae UI lue diuerence between Gilbert and (Sullivan st one
time, and many erroneous statemehts
have been made on the subject. The
truth is ve.y simple and commonplace.
Gilbert objected to tne proposal of
Mr. O'Oyley Carte to include the sum
of $7,600 for relurnishing the Irani ol
the Savoy Theatre in the preliminary
expenses ol the production ol "The
Gondoliers." Sullivan did not support
him in the way he thought he should,
snd lor a time a coolness between
them resulted. It was, however, always a matter of the greatest satis
taction to Gilbert that he and Sullivan
were the best ol Iriends again beiore
the latter died.—Westminster Oasstta.

The Dowager Duchess oi Devonshire, whose death in London the other day was a result of the excessive
heat, was a remarkable woman—sucb
• woman at is more often found ia
romantic novels tnan in real lite. She
wu 7* yean aid, but her photographs,,
by which ihe waa known the world
over, make her appear much younger.
She was but a child when with ner
German lather, Count d'Alton oi Hanover, she 6ame to England, largely
because the Prince Consort, Albert,
husband ol Victoria, was a German.
As Countess Louise d'Anhalt she was
presented at court at the age of 17.
She was then noted ior her beauty
and vivacity and waa immediately
surrounded by noble and princely
suitors. From among them she chose
Lord Mandaville, who three years later became Duke of Manchester. The
duke was a rake, a gambler and a
spendthrift and it was through him
that the beautiful duchess became enamored of the gaming table.
She was only 18 years old when she
became the mother of a son who, at
IS, married Consuelo Lynaja, who later became Duchess of Manchester, and
mother of the present duke. Her other
children are Lord Charles Montagu,
the widowed Duchess of Hamilton, the
Countess ol Gosford and Lady Alice
Stanley, the wife of the eldest son of
Lord Stanley, of Preston, at one time
Governor-General of Canada.
Among the swarm of suitors for her
hand when she was the Countess
Louise was the young Marquis of
Hartington. She looked on him with
favor, but he was slow in proposing
-.<£>.
LiTX DOCBESS or OXVOKIRtM.
and Lord Mandeville, more impetuous,
won her hand. But Hartington waa
so badly smitten that he remained single for many years and as time went
by he kept so close to the hem of the
duchess' gown that society marveled
and gossiped. The two were rarely
separated and their friendship was
pointed to as the ideal plalonic affection oi the century. Hartington was
a statesman and became famous as the
right hand man ol Gladstone.
In 1890, alter a married lite oi nearly
forty yeais, the Duke of Manchester
died. The Duke of Devonshire passed
away at about tne same time and
Hartington succeeded to the title and
to the enormous fortune. Shortly after
tiiis tbe widowed Duchess of Manchester and the new Duke of Devonshire,
whose wile had also passed away, were
married. Thus were the middle-sged
friends—lovers in youtu—united and
Louise became "the double duchess."
But the Duchess uf Devonshire never abandoned the habits ahe had acquired U Duchess ot Manchester. She
could not conquer her passion lor
gambling. She was a master of bridge
whist and it is said tliere was no better player in England, but she used
to say she was 'as unlucky at cards
aa lucky in love." During the past
decade it is iairly estimated she lost
t'al.UOO.OOO In hard cash at cards and
at the race track. Luckily, the fortune ol tho Duke of Devonshire was
large enough tu stand the strain.
