Two Doukhobors were on trial be
fore Judge Cochrane on Monday last
for violatiug the provincial statutes
in failing to obtain burial permits
before interring deceased persons.
Tbe first, found guilty of burying a
decased child without a permit, was
fined $25 and costs, with a month's
imprisonment in the Nelson jsil.
The second was found guilty of
intoning a femo'e relative wi-hout
the essential document, and was
fined $100 and cosis, with a similar
sentence of imprisonment. On
Tuesday evening a detachment from
the colony west uf city manifested
tbeir lamentations known the peo
pie, hy reason ef the fines and sen-
tencep,by paradingthrough the streets
and singing psalms. It is stated
that at a conference of the leaders of
the colony a few days ago a decision
was arrived at to ignore the law re
garding burial permits. This probably means that there will be a fine
imposed after every violation of the
Act.
At the council meetihg Monday
night the salary bylaw passed its second reading. Aid. Smith's amendment to the electric lighting bylaw

After fl, Long Shut-Down the
Works Here fie Blown in
Next Week
Alter a shut-down of over seven
months active prepartions aro now
being made for a resumption of operations by the Grahby Consolidated.
Tomorrow morning a force of workmen will be put to work at the smelter
in this city getting the plant mi shape
so that some of the furnaces can be
blown in next week. Although no
definite date has yet been set for this
event, the local officers of the company are inclined to believe that the
middle of the week will see a portion
of the battery in operation, as there
is now a large aecumulation of coke
at the woaks, and shipments are arriving daily from the Crow's Nest.
At the mines in Phoenix a large
force of miners will be put to work tomorrow morning, and the first ore
train will be sent down the hill on
the 20th.
A record-breaking run may be
looked for when the eight furnaces are
once iu blast. President Luther stated
recently that the company was anxious
to run the plant in this city at its full
capacity, as the piofits from these
operations will be needed'to finance
tlie Hidden .Creek properly, lately
purchased and now being developed
by the Granby company. The improvements planned al this p:o, erty
involve an expenditure of 11,000,000.

Virtues ofthe Onion
Onions are really sweeteners of the
breath after the local effects have
passed away, as they correct stomach
disorders and curry oil' the accumulated poisons of the system. They
provide a blood purifier thut all muy
freely use, and do perfect work iu constipation troubles. As a vermifuge
the onion cannot be surpassed, and
eaten raw will often check a violent
cold in the head. Une small onion
eaten before retiring every night is a
well-known doctor's prescription for
numerous affections of the head,and is
highly recommended for sleeplessness.
It acts on the nerves in a soothing
way, without the injurious effects of
the drugs often applied. The heart of
the onion heated and placed in the
ear will often relieve the agony of ear
ache, while the syrup produced from
sprinklng a sliced onion with sugar
and baking it is said to work wonders
in a croupy child.

Education Better Than Cash
Don't let the boys go to work merely
because tbe first excitement of money
earning is on them. Don't let them
heedlessly sacrifice themselves tbat
your own burden may be a trifle lighter.' Your family Is standing still when
you do that sort of thing and not progressing as a Canadian family ought
to progress. Look to the future of
your boys, not to your present eaae.
They do not realize what they are
mlsslng but you do—especially If you
have missed the higher education
yourself. The evolution of the family la one of the finest things anyone
can play, and lt Is one in which anyone may take a hand. Better hold to
tbe old Ideals and keep the boys In
school. Your self-respect wilt Increase
If you do, and the harder tt is for you
to do It, the more satisfaction you will
have from your achievement.

DR. CHASE'S
KIDNEY-LIVER
The kidneys are often the first organs of the body to cause trouble.
Their work of filtering the blood is
greatly Increased by excessive eating
or by the use of highly seasoned foods
and alcoholic drinks.
As advanced age comes on most
people suffer more or less from derangements ot tlio kidneys. With
some there are years of pains and
aches, with others Blight's Disease
is soon developed and the *end comes

learned about Dr. Chase's Kidney and
Liver Pills, and are enabled by their
use to keep the kidneys healthy and
active.
This medicine is entirely different
from ordinary kidney treatments,
and invigorates the action of the liver
and bowels. To this combined action
is attributed Its remarkable success.
Sir. Richard Preston, Osborne,
Lainhton county, Ont., writes:—"I
want to testify to the wonderful curative properties of Dr. A. W. Chase's
Kidney and Liver Pills. Seventeen
years ago I began the use of iiii..
medicine, when my back was so bad
that to stoop or rise was torture to
mc. The kidneys were In bad condition, but these pills entirely freed
me of back pains. I have used them
ever since, whenever the kidneys
would get out of order, and now, at
eighty years', am well and hearty,
thanks to this grand medicine."

.A Hint to the Shy
Shyness comes through lack of confidence, and to overcome shyness it
is therefore necessary to overcome
this feeling of diffidence and gain
more confidence. There is nothing
like quiet thought to help in the attainment of self-confidence, and the
shy or timid person will gain much by
taking a few minutes tiulet and
thought each day, during which tlmo
the mind Is fixed on the cause of the
shyness or flurry. Be determined not
to become shy or nervous and reason
with yourself as lo why you should
not become thus agitated.
Determine to rule yourself by your
own thoughts and by your own reasoning powers.

During tbe summer or IS— Constance
Phillips, an art student, chose ths
coast of Maine for a Held In wblcb to
paint pictures. Tbere Is an Island on
that const which has been made preeminent among Ita neighbors by a
celebrated authoress, who located one
•f ber stories there. Harriet Beeeher
Btowe's "Pearl ot Orr'a Island" has
been, read by millions of her fellow
countrymen, thus familiarising tbem
wllb at least the nume of tbe locality.
Miss Phillip*, being alone, stopped at
a small hotel near the bouse In which
Mm. Stowe wrote ber story. In the
nAriilng nfter breakfast she would
take ber artist's paraphernalia, and
Hart oat lo search of a scene to transfer to canvas. But she found nothing
•I tbe marine order thnt pleased bet
more than tbe view looking eastward
from the lower end of Ibe island. Descending an Incline, sbe found herself
Just above a rocky sbore overlooking
• strip of C'osco bay. There sbe set
up her easel aud. embracing In ber
subject a bit of the rocks and a bit of
the ocean, began her work.
Constance painted all tbe morning,
but unfortunately her ability to transfer to canvas what she saw wns not of
a blgb order. Like many aspirants for
success In art, sbe felt lt. but was unable to cipress It. What sbo had
placed on the canvas disappointed ber.
Bbe was looking at ber work ruefully
when she heard a step behind ber and,
turning, saw a man descending through
tbe wild grass and weeds. As be passed her he lifted bis cap and. casting a

from It to Its subject
"Yon have selected qnlte an attractive view," be said. "Your discrimination lo thia respect is proved by
your having chosen the best tbere Is
bere."
. ."[ fear ft le all discrimination," said
Constance, viewing ber work lugubriously.
"You mean that you are not gifted
.with the artistic touch S"
"I fear I am not"
"A * good deal depends upon tbat
which for the want of a better word
1 shall call tbe trickery of art There
are all sorts of methods of producing
effects wblcb, tbongh In themselves
mechanical, tend to successful painting. Judging from this bit of work, 1
fancy you bave something to learn la
tbls respect."
"Lots."
"For Instance, this bit of rocky cliff
ia depicted against tbat wood across
tbe water.. The cliff Is ot a dark
brown,, the wood a dark green, two
dark substances, tbe one directly behind the other. You musl make one
ot tbem ot a different shade from
what lt Is. The rock, being In the
foreground, Is tbe roost Important.
You bave got Its color to perfection.
The wood, 'being distant would bear
more blending with Its neighboring
objects, lt will benr lightening,
which will darken the rock."
Constance mixed some colors on her
palette, gave the wood beyond tbe
rack a dab and was quite pleased with
the Improvement. Tbe rock stood out
boldly, while the wuod appeared at
Its proper distance.
"Are you a teacher ot arty she
asked.
•*1 have taught art, but I do not
teach now. I am Interested ut present
In regaining my physical strength,
which Is somewhat ruu down."
Constance noticed thnt be wss pale
and thin. HI* eyes, which were large
and expressive at nny time, seemed
i so In bis Invalid condition,   Bhe

thanked blm for his suggestion .and,
removing ber canvas, folded ber easel
sad her stool, put her palette end

away when tbe stranger snid:
"Have you to carry those things

"To lbs vlllsge, about a mile up the
Island."
"Do you come back to paint this

"I expect to."
"Tben It Is not necessary tbst you

"Tbey may remain bere till yon return la tbe afternoon, and If you don't

"Yeu are very kind," Constance replied.  "Do you live here all alone?'
"For the present 1 go back to the

"I will relieve yon of my belongings

"it It la oot necessary tbat you

"No,-you can't And In tbe morning
wben vou are fresb you will know
just wbat It requires. You see, Ihe
course I advise Is beneficial ln more
ways than one."
Constance left blm and. striking a
disused rood tbrough tbe plues, walked away toward Hufpswell village.
After dinner Instead ot going back to
-hei work sbe took a siesta aud later
a tour of observation In search ot objects to transfer to canvas.
The next morning was clear and
crisp. Constance walked to tbe cot-
tage wbere sho bad left her belongings and, approaching, saw her easel
set up on tbe north porcb and ber picture resting on It. Sbe wns far better pleased wltb what she bad done
tban she had been tbe day before.
Just then the stranger came out, and
sbe said to blm:
"You are an admirable teacber.
Last evening I was disposed to tbrow
my work into tbe Ore. Tbls morning
I am very well satisfied wltb It"
"Perhaps It ts because you see 11
through rested eyes."
Constance took her picture down to
the position she bad occupied tbe day
before and began ber day's work. She
was again disappointed. It seemed
to her when noon came tbat ber picture looked mucb as lt had done tho
day before. Sbe carried. It up lo tbe
stranger's cottsge. Be saw ber coming
and went out to meet her.
"I fear that I bave (polled It" sbe
said to him. "This morning It was
fine; now It is worse than it was yesterday."
"Put lt away from you again," be
Mid. "till tomorrow morning."
"I will leave It with you till tomorrow morning If you will kindly
keep it but I know that during the
day I bave Injured It rather tbau Improved It I am bentstck over lt"
Growing confidential: "I am very poor
and have boped soon to be able to
mnke my living ln tbls way.- lt tbe
more work 1 put on a picture the
worse lt is, what chance Is tbere for
me J"
"We must all meet discouragement,"
he replied, "but when we sre In Its
tolls there ts s kind fairy called rest
Ibat unwinds tbem, eud when we are
refreshed we tske bold again wltb
reuewed vigor."
So Constance left ber picture wltb
her new found friend, went to her
room and lounged tbe rest of tbe day.
In the morning she found ber picture
again set up ln an advantageous light,
aud again ber dissatisfaction wltb lt
of tbe day before was changed to
comfort
Day after day Constance worked on
ber picture, every morning comforted
by Its appearing to_ber to be improved
from what It was the day before,
every neon fearful lest she bad lost
more than she bad gained. Tbe
stranger fnught her many a "trick." as
he called it by which objects were
brought to tbelr relative posltlou and
striking effects produced. Une tblng
she knew-tnken altogether, tbe picture was really growing Into something beautiful. Sbe believed that
wbnt she wss doing was duo entirely
to s subtle Influence ber Instructor
exerted over bere.
During tbls time the summer was
fading Into autumn. The waler nnd
the sky took ou a cold hue, and lbs
cottage residents of Urr's Island began
to return to their permanent homes.
Constance finished her painting and
was delighted with It. Bbe wns surprised St her talent.
Constance's Instructor totd her that
tf she would tsko her picture to s
prominent art denier In Boston he
thought she would get s good pries
for It He said be would meet her
there on n certain dale snd Introduce
ber. On Ihe dny nsuicil she took hrr
work to the store, but ber Instructor
Sailed to meet her. She showed Ihe
denier Iho picture, and be studied II
carefully.
"Did you paint Iti" he asked. •
"Certainly.   Wby to you ask tbal?"
"Because I w«uld havo sworn tbat
was a Frank Elliot."
Taking up n small microscope, be
brougbl It to bear on n lower corner.
"II ts na Elliot," he said.
"What do you menu':" exclaimed Ibe
astonished Constanca
Tbe dealer banded ber tbo microscope, and sbe brought It to bear ca
tbe picture. There sbe saw "F. Elliot
del."
"Who Is Frank Elliot?" sbe asked.
"Our principal American marine
painter Just at present."
"Where does be live?"
"Nowhere. He's been trying to regain bis health at Orr's island, I believe." "   .   , . .
Constance was dumfounded.
"Whnt value do you- place upon tbe
picture?" she asked.
The dealer pondered a few moments,
then ssld:
"It Is worth shout $1,200."
"Goodness gracious!" exclaimed ths
girl, her breath quite taken away.
At tbnt moment Constance's instructor walked Into thc shop.
"Hello. Elliot." said the dealer.
"Been trying to fool me sgnin. have
you? You can't do lt I'd know your
work In a dungeon."
The soqo.il to this story Is very brief
sud very prosaic. Frank Elliot nnd

-Conversation*
Conversation is one ot the blights of
civilisation.
People spend thousands of dollars la
education, in books, ln travel, la theater tickets, and all In order to be able
to carry on a conversation.
As a consequence tbe women talk
about cooks and clothes and the mea
about weatber and women.
Conversation may be divided Into
chats, arguments, piffle and palaver,
with gossips and quarrels as side Issues.
Conversations are fortunately, forgotten as soon ns they are over; otherwise people would be so mortified over
their Inane remarks tbat they would
seek new friends every day, fearing to
meet old ones. .
The Idea tbat when people meet lt
Is necessary for them to talk bas grown
out of helpless self distrust. Not over
five out of a million people say anything when they converse.
The trouble Is that were we to try
to develop the art of keeping still we
should immediately begin to talk

HONEY GUIDES.
African Birds That load Men to th*
Nests of Bees.
"For many ages," says a writer, "the
small birds which are known In Africa as honey guides have been in tbe
bablt of leading human beings to tbe
nests of bees. The first notice of the
kind of which 1 have knowledge Is In
T.obo's Travels In Abyssinia,' published by Le Grnnd in 1728. 'The nioroc
or honey bird,' says tbls netbor, 'Is
endued with a peculiar Instinct or faculty of discovering honey. When tbe
moroc has discovered any honey be repairs Immediately to the roadside and
wben bc sees a traveler slugs and
claps his wings, making many motions to Invito him to follow him, and
when he perceives Ills coming files before him from tree lo tree till he combs
to the place where I ho bees have stored tbelr treasure aud then begins to
sing melodiously, Thc Abyssinian
takes the honey without falling to
leave part of It for the bird to reward
him for his information.' Spiirrman,
who traveled nt tlio Capo In 1775-70,
gives also a very good description ot
tbe bird a« observed In Ibe southern
part of tbe continent.
"Tbe honey guides lend human beings to tbe nests of wild bees not so
much for tbe honey as for tbe grubs
or larvae found within the comb. The
natives arc for the most part well
aware of .his fnct, and It they reward
the honey guide, which they usually
do to some grudging extent, break off
for It a piece of the comb In which the
grubs are batching. ■Sparrmnn hns ii
curious note upon this detail. Ue snys,
'I wus Informed by my boshlesmen
(bushmen), as well us by the colonists,
that a man who makes It his constant
business to go after the bees should
not at first be too grateful and generous to this officious blijl, but leave for
it only Just as much as will servo to
stimulate Its nppetlle, by wblcb means
It will bo Induced In Holies of obtaining it more liberal reward to discover
another swnrm of bees.'
"Wben lt desires to feed upon some
comb which It litis discovered It makes
Its wny to n human being, flutters
nbout restlessly nnd bops from brunch
to branch or from bush to bush or
from oue ant hill to ntiothcr until It
succeeds In attracting the man's attention. During tbls time It utters a shrill
cry of 'ehcrr, cberiT frequently repeated. If the mau is a native who
understands Its habits and Is willing
to follow, lt be otteu gives n soft
soothing whistle and, taking with him
a hatchet, accepts the restless little
creature's guidance. The honey guide
now goes on ahead, never keeping very
far away and always Jealously noticing whether the man Is really following. At length (he honey nest Is reached and tbe bird's object accomplished.
While the native oi* unlives nttnek the
uest and rifle (he comb thc bird still
flutters about, chirping. When the business Is ('(included nud lhe men depart
the honey guide descends from its
perch and helps Itself to as much of
the larvae as It ran find.
"When thus following n honey guide
thc native s,"_es, us a rule, very quietly,
taking care not to frighten his small
adviser, if the man by reason of bush
or otber obstacle travels, In the bird's
opinion, too slowly It will repeatedly
come back to him. fly closely and angrily about blm and wltb restless twitters nnd evident impatience urge upon
liiin the necessity of hurrying up."

FRIDAY, DECEMBER lli, 1911
It has been the general impression
annular the citizens that the city needed all its available cash. VVe are
pleased to be able to inform them
that they have harbored false notions. The city has money to burn.
At its last meeting the city council
made an appropriation of 875 to send
a man to the coast to secure a drill
shed for the city. There ia no kick
against the shed. The city needs it.
But the method of endeavoring to ob*
tain is certainly peculiar. Such gifts
are usually obtained from the federal
government. We have a representative at Ottawa. Also one at Victoria.
An apptopriation for military purposes at either place would necessarily
come through one of them. Of what
use then is the special envoy to the
coast. If the drill hall which the envoy procures at the const proves to ba
too heavy to be forwarded by express,
he will undoubtedly be able to skjjfcit
home on sleigh runners.
There must be some affinity be
tween a mongrel and an ignorant,
low bred man. Both yelp at passers-
by at a safe distance.

William Tsft, tbe weakling chosen
by Mr. Roosevelt, has been a disappointment. But not to bis country.
The moneyed interests wbioh accepted hiin are defied and within tbe
limitations of his office Mr. Taft

Taft and Borden
Two messages of President Taft
sent to congress this week bave
served to arouse new interest in the
strength of character which is persistently maintained by tbe chief
magistrate of the American people.
The developments taking place in
the national life of tbe people at our
south present to each new occupant
of the prtsidcntial office not oily
opportunities but responsibilities
which test and riemonstrste the mela
of whicb he is made If congns< follows the advice of the messages already sent tbere will be a notable
advance, not only in the war against
iniquitous trust rule, but in the
broader realm of international comity. Mr. Taft presents a side to bis
character which is becoming more
fittingly prominent with each year
as the necessity for a strong stand
on important issues arises. Public
honor and place cannot swerve him
from bis fealty to conscience or duty.
While not unwilling to be president
again, he is emphatic as to tbe conditions.
"I bave not been willing, nor will
I he, to purchase it at the sacrifice
of my freedom to do my duty aB I
see it." The Montreal Herald satirizes Mr. Borden by comparison.
It points out "that this is pure
drivel. If tbe rule Mr.Taft lays down
wer* a safe one, the Borden cabinet
could never have been formed. Mr.
Borden could not sit in the same
cabinet witb a man who bad denounced him all over the province
of Quebec. Mr. Monk could not
sit in tbe cabinet with men wbose
views, as commnicated to the public, are directly contrary to his own.
Freedom to do one's duty? Why,
Mr. Pelletier, Mr. Hughes, Mr. Nan
tel, Mr. Rogers are free only to draw
tbeir salaries; and thut, to, do them
justice, ia what they apparent..*,
think to be must important. Hott
is it a smart man like Mr. Taft can

Although Indigestion and Dvspep

Britain's Foreign Trade
In view of the fact that the government purty of Canada engages
lustily in reiterating the slanders of
lhe tariff reformers in Great Britain
and that tlie British high tariff party
greedily accepts the misrepresentations of Canadian sentiment on sev
erul of the vital issues of lhe presenl
day, the following editorial frnm the
Midland Mail ia reproduced hv the
Victoria Times, trusting the com
mon sense of the reader to make his
own application.   The Mail says:
"British 'tariff reformers,' for the
purposes of their fraud, have done
tbeir hest to persuade the world thai
this old country was worn out, was
daily  losing   ground  commercially.
goods per head o( the population far
exceed those of the United States
and Germany combined, and may
this year top those of the United
Slates, France and Germany combined."

things equally untrue, and  in any

We believe wa can relieve Dyspepsia. VVe are so confident of thia fact
that we guarantee and promise to supply tha medicine free of cost to every
one who will use it, who is not perfectly satisfied with the results which
it produces. We exact no promises,
and put no one under any obligation
whatever. Surely, nothing could be
fairer. Wa are located right here,
and our reputation should bo'sutlicient
guarantee of the genuineness of our
offer.
We want every one troubled with
Indigestion or Dyspepsia in any form
to come to oui store and buy a box of
Uexall Dyspepsia Tablets. Take them
home and give them a reasonable trial,
according to directions. Then, if not
satisfied, come to us and get your
money back. They are very pleasant
to take; they aid to soothe the irritable stomach, to strengthen and invig
orate the digestive organs, and to pro
mote a healthy and natural bowel action, thu* leading to perfect and
healthy digestion and assimilation.
A 25c. package of Rexall Dyspepsia
Tablets furnishes 15 days' treatment.

a pereisleney which ia characteristic
of the British 'tariff reformer,' anil
their sources of information in this
country bave been not only tainted,
but putrid. We hope. therefore,tliai
readers who have friends in Canada
will let (hem have the following
facts.
"A few years ago we were speculating aB to whether it was possible
for any country in the world to do a
foreign trade amounting to a thous
and million pounds in one year.
Tbe United Statesl witb double our
population, has npt yet approached
three quarters of that amount.
"In 1909 we just topped, the
thousand millions; last y»ar we did
1108 millions; and unless something
unto vard happens in the last two
months we shall tbis year do 1150
millions worth, in spite of the disruption occasioned by the railway

we had don* 924 millions worth.

Progressive Agriculture
It is said that there never was a
time when Canada's agriculture was
so progressiva and on suuh a firm basis
as it is at present, says the Farmers'
Advocate, lt is true, howevi r, that
there never was a time when other
enterprises were more progrsssive than
'luring the first decade of the twentieth century. Is agriculture keeping
paco with the vast strides being made
by commercial enterprises! Are all
things being dona which might he
done to further, the calling in which
the msl'iir portion of our population is
engaged? There never was a time in
the history of the world when largei
returns could be made from the farms
of the country than at the present
time.
There never was a time when hnn-
a-st endeavor, coupled with a scientific
and practical kuoAledge of the husi
ness, causing intelligent application of
'tpproved principles, yielded more
handsome returns than at the paesent
Agriculture is nut dead—far from it.
Yet, there are many places in which
much work could be done to promote
the interests of fanning communities.
Our governments should realize lhat,
ill furthering the interests of the ngri-
a.'ulturists, they sre doing good to the
most people, and i.t the same time to
the people who t'nriii the backb ne of
our country.

The Bsautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers
this Season.   <^An Inspiration of Love and
Affection—z_A Picture that will be like a
a
Member  of  the  Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
rPHK Family Herald and Weekly Slur of Montreal, acknowledged to lie
£ the greatest and best family and farm paper on the continent, bason
many occasions given ils readers most delightful premium pictures,
hut this season they have secured wbat is beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper readers. It is entitled "Home
Again" nnd describes a touching hut joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
"I.itdilie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winner
of mnny prizes at dog snows, the pride ol the family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, nnd after many dnys' absence he escapes one night from
his enptor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles for fre .'tlmn dangling from his collar.
His familiar hark brings his Utile mistress, Marjorie, tn the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to he "Home Again." and answers her welcome by putting his
paws ou her shoulder and resting his hend agninst her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad eyed children—an eager hoy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, nil go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls ol i\ny home.
The picture is by thn celebrated artist, Arthur J. Klsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Horn. Again" on heavy pinto paper 22x29
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to-every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly .Star for 1012.
The small sum of $1.50 will secure the two papers for a full year including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not he bought at that price.

Valuable Water-Power
It la stated that the Canadian Pacific Railway has secured a valuable
water-power in British Columbia,
which it will utilize in the near future for transportation purposes. The
water-power secured is on the Adams
River, which flows out of Adams Lake
and nuo the South Thompson river,
near the west end of Shuswap Lake.
Reports bave reported that it is capable of developing 100,000 h.p., at two
poinds between Adams Lake and its
confluence with the South' Thompson.
The Canadian Pacific Railway lt is
stated, has in view the generation of
power for the electrification ot a portion of its lines through the mountains. This step will not be taken for
some years yet, of course, but the
railway has secured the power with
an eye to Ihe future.
A MOTHER-S~Pr"aISE OF
BABY'S OWN TABLETS.
Mrs. B. 3. Baker, East Margaret-
ville, N. 8., writes: "No mother would
recommend for her baby any medicine of which she was not absolutely
sure. A baby'B life is too precious.
A mother is always pleased to recommend to other mothers something
that has been valuable in restoring
the health of her own child. That Is
why I can highly recommend Baby's
Own Tablets. They cured my baby
who was suffering from constipation
and I feel that I cannot praise them
enough. I would advise all mothers
with sickly babies to give them a
trial, well knowing what the result
will be." The Tablets are sold by
medicine dealers or by mall at 25
cents a box from The Dr. Williams
Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
Bolivian Production of Tin
Bolivia produces one-quarter of the
total Uu output of the world. Recently its tin sold for $1,000 a ton. The
wealth accruing to the Andean Republic from this source would be a
simple arithmetical problem If this
price was constant. Fortunately during the past two years the value ot
a ton of tin has never gone much below $750, and at that price tlie Bolivian tin miner is assured a good profit, despite the difficulties of transportation.
Certain economic factories operated against the highest exploitation of
tin In Bolivia, especially the neces
sarily heavy freight charges, the dependence on the price of Straits tlu,
the export duty and the fluctuation
ot the Bolivian money. In time most
of these handicaps will be overcome
and the proceeds of tbe tin miner of
Bolivia proportionately Increased.
EYERY PLACE ON
THE WIDE PRAIRIES
A Plea fer tlie Lonely
The merry world goes round, time
flies, end we eagerly grasp every
pleasure that comes within our reach;
but bow often do we pause and consider the lonely ones, of whom there
are eo many ln our midst? At our
ery doors there is someone who needs
a cheering word and a helping hand,
lt 1b not money or alms that are wanted, but human sympathy.
Vou who have dear ones around
your hearth cannot realise what lt
means to be a stranger in a strange
city with none to extend a friendly
hand. Riches may buy false friendship, but poverty bars even that, and
the lonely toiler finds none who care
or sympathise, and the path iB bard
indeed.
The girl in the office lives,- maybe,
Just alone in rooms; fine folk don't ask
her out because Bhe is ln business;
and Just the same applies to the boy
at the des'.!. But they are human, and
doing their duty bravely. Both lives
would be brightened If you asked them
to your house and tried to banish the
homesickness and loneliness by sympathy and friendliness.
Won't you try and bring a litle
cheer to lonely hearts that-come your
way? You won't have far tp seek'
them if you wish to play the better
part. Never mind if the lonely ones
are uot ln what you call your "set";
they are your, brothers and sisters In
the eyeB of God, and not can excuse
your neglect of their claims.

Cold Springs, Peace River Landing,

across the prairies. Every town, village and postoffice has at least one
man or woman who Is ready to tell of
pains relieved and strength restored
by the great Canadian Kidney Remedy.
Let Thos. Griffin of this place add his
statement to the hosts already published.
"When I came lo this part of the
country," says Mr. Griffin, "I was
troubled with a bad back and Rheumatism In my shoulders aud hips. I
sent for six boxes of Dodd's Kidney
Pills and they gave me relief at once.
1 also recommended them to my eldest
son who was confined to his bed from
Rheumatism.
"Now I know that Dodd's Kidney
Pills are the best medicine for Rheumatism and the Kidneys. I recommend them to every persm I hear
complaining of not feeling well."
Dodd's Kidney Pills made the.!* popularity by curing sick Kidneys. They
keep their popularity by keeping on
curing sick kidneys.

relieves the pain and it sets up healing. It also prevents blood-poisoning

ARE YOU AS WELL
AS A YEAR AGO?
DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS POINT
THE WAY TO HEALTH AND
STRENGTH.
Ask yourself the important question
whether you'are as strong as you
were a year ago, as bodily tit as you
would be.- Many a reader has to confess "No," Some weakening ailment
has during the past year laid hold of
the system, unfitting you for the duties oi lite and seriously clouding the
outlook of the coming days. It may
be rheumatism with ita sharp twinges
of pain, indigestion, headache, nervous debility, depression and lack of
energy, or the pains and allmente
which only common folk know. It is
well to know that ail these weakening
disorders arise from an impoverished
condition of the blood. Renew and
enrich your blood and all your troubles
will cease. This is a strong statement, hut It is made on the testimony
of thonsands wbo once suffered, but
who have gained health and strength
by the aid of thc new, rich blood supplied by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. We
can quote thousands ot cases similar
lo tbe following: Mr. Job. Grand-
maison is a young man well known
ln the town of St. Jerome, Que. He
says: "For a couple ot years I began
to find my strength falling, but did
not dream that the trouble was serious. As I grew weaker I began to
doctor, but It did not help me. The
least exertion made my heart palpitate violently, my stomach seemed
out ot order nud my whole system became so run down that I was finally
forced to quit work. I had now been
doctoring tor over six months and
waa very naturally growing discouraged. At this Juncture I read of a
case similar to mine, cured through
tbe use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
and decided to try them. 1 took the
Pills faithfully for about two months,
gradually growing stronger and at the
eud of that time I was as well as any
man could be. I shall always praise
the medicine that raised me from despair to the blessing ot good health."

ADMIRAL TOGO'S TRIP.
It Led Him to Appreciate the Hospitality of the Canadian Pacific
Railway.
(Japan Gazette, September 20.)
On his return trip from England,
which he attended as one of the suite
of the Imperial Japanese delegation
to the coronation, Admiral Count Togo travelled across Canada by the
Canadian Pacific Railway—which has
been called the "Alliance Route," and
was, therefore, rather appropriately
chosen on this occasion by this distinguished representative of an embassy between the allies. By Instruction of the president ot the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company, Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, Admiral Togo was the
guest of the Company throughout, and
every effort was made to make his
trip pleasant.
The Admiral took the private car
"Canada" at Niagara Falls, proceeding to Banff and thence to Vancouver,
The "Canada," lt should be explained, was the car specially built for the
present King and Queen of England,
a few years ago, when they made
their notable Canadian trip.
On arrival at Vancouver Admiral
Togo telegraphed to Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy his heartfelt thanks for
tlie services and arrangements accorded him on the Canadian Pacific
Railway, and assuring the president
that liis trip had been exceedingly
pleasant.
It Is evident that such indications
of a broad spirit of hospitality as tbat
shown by the Canadian Pacific Railway on this occasion makes materially for the promotion of pleasant international relations, and Admiral Togo Is only one in a long list of distinguished Japanese who have thus
travelled over the Canadian Pacific
Indeed, lt may confidently be stated
that attentions ot this kind to one so
much respected and beloved as Admiral Togo are deeply appreciated in
the highest quarters in this country.

NO CAUSE TO DOUBT
A Statement of Facts Backed
by a Strong Guarantee
We guarantee immediate and positive relief to all sufferers from constipation. In every case whese our
remedy fails to do this we will return
the money paid for it. That's a frank
statement of facts, and we want you
to substantiate it at our risk.
Rexall Orderlies are eaten just like
candy, are particularly promdt and
agreeable in action, may be taken at
any time, day or night; do not cause
diarrhcea, nausea, griping, excessive
looseness, or other undesirable effects.
They have a very mild but positive action upon the orgons with which they
come in contact, apparently acting as
a regulative tonic upon the relaxed
muscular coat of the bowel, thus overcoming weakness, and aiding to restore the bowels to more vigorous and
healthy activity;
Rexall Orderlies are unsurpassable
and ideal for the use of children, old
folks aud delicate persons. We caunot
too highly recommend them to all suf
ferers from any form of constipation
and its attendant evils. That's why
we back our faith in them with our
promise of money buck if they do not
give entire satisfaction. Three sizes:
12 tablets, 10 cents; 36 tablets, 23
cents; 80 tablets, 50 cents. Remember, you ean obtain Rexall Remedies
iu Grand Forks only at our store —
The Rexall Store.    H. E. Woodland.
M. Bohan, a Spokane contractor,
visited his brother, P. £. Bohan, a
