City Clerk's Offloe Again Vacant—Colin   Campbell
Clerk Pro Tern
The mayor and all the aldermen
i Smith were present at tbe regular
bi-weekly meeting of tbe city council on Monday evening.
All the bills were laid over till tbe
next meeting, as tbe clerk had not
attached the proper vouchers to
A letter from the Paciflo Coast
Wood Pipe company, giving quota-
tions on wooden pipe, was read and
ordered filed.
Tbe financial statement' for tbe
firat quarter of tbe current year was
submitted by lbe city auditor, and
after it bad been read it vjas approved by the council.
The mayor aad some of tbe aldermen suggested tbat the cash on
band be counted, io order to ascertain if tbe amount corresponded
with the figure given in tbe statement, and tbis was done. After tbe
members of tbe finance committee
bad performed tbis task, tbey reported having found lbe required
amount, together witb tbe day's receipts. Tbe committee, tbe mayor
and Aid. Lequime expressed dissat
i'faction because the clerk's work
was not kept up to date.
Aid. Bonthron, chairman of the
board of works, reported that tbe
road work in tbe Priest addition had
been completed. He submitted nu
estimate of £140 for a 16x16 band
stand, four feet off tbe ground, with
a bip roof. On motion of Aid. Le-
*quime and Davis, lbe council voted
a grant of $100 for tbe erection of
tbe stand, on condition that tbe
band raised tbe balance of the
amount required.
The city solicitor reported having
received no reply from the provin
oial secretary to his request for a
permit admitting James Dent to tbe
Did Men's Home st Kamloops. W.
0. Miller, district superintendent of
tbe C.P.R., had not yet givi-n a
definite reply to tbe council's re
quest tor lbe construction of a sub
way at tbe Winnipeg avenue cross
Aid. Downey was granted leave to
introduce the Grand Porks Curfew
Bell Bylaw, 1911, which passed its
first reading.
As lbe clerk bad done nothing to
make up the assesment roll, it be'
came apparent to the board that the
date set for its return must be extended. Tbis would necessarily
correspondingly extend the time before tbe taxes could be collected. In
view of the existence of tbis state
of affairs, Aid. Davis was allowed to
withdraw lbe temporary loan bylaw,
introduced at the last meeting, empowering the city to borrow $5000,
lo be repaid out of this year's taxes,
to meet tbe current expenses of the'
corporation, and be was granted
leave to introduce a new bylaw providing for a temporary loan of
315,000. Tha new bylaw passed its
lirst reading, and under a suspension of tbe rules was* advanced to
the third reading stage
On motion of Aid. Davis the assessment roll of 1910, witb the   nec
essary alterations, was adopted for
the year 1911.
The chairman of tbe board of
works asked tbe clerk if notices inviting lenders for sidewalk lumber
had been sent out. The lumber, he
said, was very much needed at present. The clerk replied that he had
notified all tbe lumber companies io
tbe district. Aid. Lequime said be
could srate positively that the Danville Lumber company had not been
notified, and be was very much
afraid that the matter, like a lot of
other busiuees in tbe city office, had
been neglected.
Tha mayor, Aid. Lequime and
Davis, as well as the other members
of council, expressed dissatisfaction
at the manner in whicb the work
was being done—or not done—in tbe
oity office. In not a single depart
ment, they said, was the work kept
np to date. Cheques tbat should
Gave been sent out weeks ago bad
been withheld, and correspondence
and other work neglected. The
members were of the unanimous
opinion tbat tbe clerk sbould hand
in his resignation.
Mr. Minbinnick wrote out bis resignation, to take effect at the pleas-
lire of the council after bis accounts
bod been audited. On motion of
Aid. Lequime and Davis, tbe resignation was accepted, to take effect at
On motion of Aid. Lequime and
Downey, Colin Campbell was appointed clerk, assessor, etc., pro
tern, with power to sign cheques.
On motion, Colin Campbell's appointment at a caucus meeting last
week   as  assistant  clerk was con
firmed by tbe council.
Government May Interfere
Official notice has been received
at Fernie from the government at
Ottawa that unless one or both parties to tbe dispute in the strike of
the coal miners filed notice of a request for tbe application of the provisions of the Industrial Disdutes

Bernard Lequime returned yesterday from Rossland, where he attended a directrs' meeting of the
McKinley Mines, Ltd., called for
tbe purpose of considering tbe advisability of giving tbe British Columbia Copper company an op'ibn

The eighth annual "smoker" of
the local union of the Western Federation of Miners was held in the
Miners' Union ball on Wednesday
evening, April 12, and was a buge
success from start to finish. The
speeches, songs and musical solos
on various instruments, including
melodion, violin, and also the bagpipes, were all encored. But the
greatest success of the evening was
tbe kangaroo conrt, S.unuel Baker
acting as judge, Wniter K Hadden
as prosecutor, and John O'Connell
and Charles Newman as constables,
assisted by Frank J. Miller. A long
list of charges were well preferred,
and in most instances sustained by
the court, to the merriment of those
present aud also to the financial
benefit of the local union. Tbe

$12 a ton in Greenwood. Tbe
freight charges from Connersville,
Pa., are about $9.50 per ton. Crow's

Grand Forks, tbe freight being $2

The output of tbe Granby Consolidated during February is estimated at 1,633,300 pounds of copper, 33,181 ounces of silver and
4213 ounces of gold, comparing with
January production of 1,758,518
pounds of copper, 33,730 ounces of
silver and 4426 ounces of gold.
Eight carloads of eastern coke arrived at the Greenwood smelter last
week, and shipments will continue
to arrive until tbe Coleman ovens

For some months past diamond
drill work bas been in progress to
tap tbe base of Hardy lake for irrigation purposes on the Grand Forks
Fruit & Nursery company's holdings on the old Newby ranch. This
week, after boring a three-inch hole
a distance of 535 leet, the base of
the lake was reached, and the water
commenced run through tbe aperture.
Thu. system, wben fully installed,
will be one of the best gravity irrigating plants in the valley, as tbe
cost of maintenance will practically
be reduced to a cipher. The initial
cost of installation will be between
$2000 and $3000. Tbe water right

water to irrigate 320 acres, but it is

Says Copper Will Advance
There is no longer any don lit in
tbe minds of tbe best judges of the
copper market but that the metal
market has finally touched a hard-
pan basis. Although there is at
present very little business doing,
tbe fact is due more to tbe unwillingness of producers to make' price
concessions than it is to the absence
of local demand. The United States

Two Miners Killed at Cliff
An accident, resulting in the
death of Harry Howard, an Englishman, and Victor Shore, a Finn,
occurred at the Cliff mine in Boss-
i land last week. The Cliff is operated
hy the Granby Consolidated, and
the Iwo men were contracting for
the company. How the accident
happened will probably never be
known. Howard nnd Shore, and
I'eter I'liliimlin, who was working
for tbem, bad finished their round

were tired, the three men retiring to
the blacksmith shop while they were

Struck Ore in Big Tunnel
The Greenwood Ledge says that a
lend of high-grade ore was struck in
thc Greenwood I'hoenix tunnel on
Tuesday. The ore is n little over
1800 feet from thc portal of the tunnel and 818 feet below the surface
of the Defiance mine. The lead just
struck is highly mineralized with
ore thnt is worth more thnn $100 it
ton. The ore resembles that of the
Providence mine. This strike is the
most important mining event that
has occurred in the district for
yenrs. It proves thnt the high-grade
ores of thc Boundary go down, and
will tend to produce greater mining
activity iu the mountains that surround Greenwood. i THE   SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,   B. C,

The speaker broke off suddenly, ns
someone in the corridor cnlled her
name. She slipped away from Venner's side, nnd, looking through the
palms and flowers, he could see that
she was talking eagerly to a woman
who had the appearance of a lady's
maid. Venner could not fail to note
the calm strength of the woman's
face. It was only for a moment; then
Vera came back with a telegram in
her hand.
"1 must go at once," she said. "It
is something of great importance. I
don't know  when   I   shall  see  you
agnin "
"I do," Venner said grimly. "You
are going to dine with me to-night.
Come just for once; let us Imagine
we are on our honeymoon. That
hlnckguard Fenwick Is away, nnd he
will be none the wis°r. Now, I want
you to promise me."
"I   really   can't,"   Vera   protested.
"If you only knew the danger "
However, Venner's persistency got
his own way. A moment later Vera
wns flying down the corridor. It wits
not until she wns out. of sight' thnt
Venner found that she had "one away,
leaving the littl" Yale key behind her
on the table. Venner thrilled ot'.hf.
sight of it. Here wes the opportunity
for which he bed been waiting.
Not more than ten minutes had
elapsed when, thanks to the use of
the telephone, Gurdon had reached
the Grand Empire Hotel, In a few
hurried words, Venner gave a brief
outline of whnt had happened. There
wns no time to lose.
"Of course, it is a risk," Venner
snid, "nnd T nm nnt altogether sure
thnt I nm justified In tnking advantage of this little slip on th" part of
my wife.   What do you think?"
"I think you ere talking n lot of
rot," Gurdon said emphatically. "Von
love the girl, you helieve implicitly
in her, nnd you nre desperately nnx-
Ioub to get her out of the hnnds ol
that hlneVennrd. Fenwick. From some
morbid idea of self sncrilce, your
wife continues to lend this life of misery rnther than betray what she wonld
prolmbly cnll n trust. Tt seems to me
thnt you would h" more thnn foolish
to hesitnte nny longer."
"Come along, then," Venner snid.
"Let's see what, we enn do."
The hey was in the lock nt length,
nnd the bi? door thrown onnn, disclosing n luxurious suit" of rooms
beyond. 80 far ns the explore™ eould
see nt present, thev had the nlnee
entirelv to themselves. No doubt
Fenwick's sovvnnls hnd t"ken n''vnnt-
nee of his absence to mnke n holiday.
For thc most pn-t. the rooms presented nothing out of the common;
they might have been inhabited by
anybody possessing large means. In
one of the rooms stood a desk, enre-
fully locked, and by its side a fire-]
proof snfe.
"No chnnce of getting into eithei nf
those," Gurdon snid. "Resides, the
attempt would be too risky. Don't
you notice n peculiar noiFe going on?
Bounds almost like machinery."
Surely enough, from n distant n
fal to notice that the men engaged in
this mysterious occupation were masked; at least, they wore exceedingly
large smoked spectacles, which came
to much the same thing. Behind
them stood another man, who had
every appearance of being a master
workman. 4le had a short pipe in nis
mouth, a pair of slippers on his feet,
and as to the rest, his somewhat expansive body wns swnthed in a frock-coat. Presently he made a sign, and
with the aid of a long pair of tongs,
the white hot crucible was lifted from
the fire. It was impossible for the
two men outside to see what became
of it, but evidently the foreman was
satisfied with the experiment, for he
gave a grunt of approval.
"I think that will do," he muttered.
"The impression is excellent. Now.
you fellows can take a rest whilst I
go off and finish the other lot of
"He's coming out," Venner whispered. "Let us make a bolt for it.
It won't do to be caught here."
They* darted down the corridor together, and stood in an angle of a
doorway, a little undecided as to what
to do next. The man in the frock-
coat passed them, carrying under one
arm a square case, that bore some
resemblance to the slide in which
photographers slip their negatives
after taking a photograph. The man
in the frock coat placed his burden
down on a chair, and then, apparently, hurried back for something he had [
forgotten. .
"Here is our chance," Gurdon whispered. "Let's see what is in that,
case. There may he an important
clue here."
The thing was done rapidly nnd
neatly. Inside the case, between
layers of cotton wool, lay n great
number of gold coins, obviously sovereigns. They appeared to be in a
fine state of preservation, for they
glistened in the light like new gold.
"Put one in your pocket," whispered Venner. "I'm afraid we are going
to have our journey for onr pains; hut
still, you can't, tell. Better take two,
while you are about it."
Gurdon slipped the coins into his
pocket, then turned away in th? direction of the door ns the man in the
frock coat came back, thoughtfully
whistling, aa if to give the intruders
n chance of escape. Befor*1 he appeared in sight the outer door closed soft-1
lv, nnd Venner nnd Guidon were in
the corridor once more.
A Partial Failure.
"Now do you notice anything peculiar about those coins?" Venner said,
when once more they were back in
the comparative seclusion of the
smoking-room. "Have a good look at
Gurdon complied; he turned the
coins over in his hand and weighed
them on his fingers. So far as he
could see they Wre good, honest, British coins, each well worth the twenty shillings which they were supposed
to represent.
"I don't see anything peculiar about
them at all." he snid. "So fnr ns t
can judge, they appear to be genuine
enough. At flrst I began to think
thnt our frhnd Fenwick had turned
coiner.   Look at this."
As he spoke Guidon dashed the coin
down upon a marble table. It rang
true nnd clenr.
"I'd give n pound for it." he snid. j
"The weight in itself is n good t"st '
No coiner yet hns ever discovered n
metal that will weigh like gold nnd
ring as true.   The only strange thing •■
ubout the coin is thnt it is in such n !
wonderful  state  of  preservi'tion.     Iv
might hnve come out of the Mint yes- I
terdny.   I nm afraid we shnll have to
trick here, though what the scheme is
1 am utterly at a loss to know. Will
you come in this evening after dinner
and take your coffee ana cigar with
me? My wife is dining with me, but
it is an express stipulation that she
should go directly dinner iB over."
It was a little after seven, and Venner was impatiently waiting the coming of Vera. He was not altogether
sorry to notice that the dining-room
was tilling up more rapidly to-night
than it had done for some days past.
Perhaps, on the whole, there would
be safety in numbers. Venner had
secured a little table for two on the
far side of the room, uud he stood in
the doorway now, waiting somewhat
restlessly and impatiently for Vera to
appear. He was not a little anxious
aud nervous in case something should
happen ut the lust moment to prevent
bis wife's appearance. As a rule,
Venner wus not a man who waa troubled mush with nerves, though he became conscious of the fact that he
possessed them to-night.
Was ever a man so strangely placed
as himself, he wondered? He marvelled, too, that he could sit down so
patiently without asserting his rights.
He was the possessor of ample means,
and if money stood in the way he was
quite prepared to pay Fenwick hiB
On these somewhat painful meditations Vera intruded. She was simply
dressed in white, and had no ornaments beyond a few flowers Her face
wus flushed now, and there was in
her eyes a look of something that ap-
prirached to happiness.
"I am so glad you have come, dear-1
est," Venner said, as he pressed thb j
gill's  hand.    "I  was terribly  afraid
that  something  might come  in  the
w»y.   If tliere is any danger "
"I don't think there is any danger,"
Vera whispered, "though there ore
other eyes on me besides those of
Mark Fenwick. But, all the same, 1
am not supposed to know anybody in
the hotel, and I come down to dinner
as a matter of course. I am glad the
placg is so crowded, Gerald, it will
majte us less conspicuous. But it is
just possible that I may have to go
before dinner is over. If that is so.
I hope you will not be annoyed with
"You have given me cause for greater annoyance than that," Vennor smiled. "And Thave borne it all uncomplainingly. And now let us forget the
unhappy pnsl, and try and live for
present. We are on our honeymoon,
you understand. I wonder what the
people in this room would say if they
heard our amazing Btory."
"I have no doubt there are other
stories just as sad here," Vera said,
as she took her place at the table.
"But I am not going to allow myself
to be miserable to-night. We are going to forget everything, we are going
to believe thnt this is Fairyland, and
that you are the Prince who "

What H« Was Worth
Robert Burns was once standing on
a long pier on the water front of Edinburgh. A well-known and wealthy
merchant, walking by, stumbled and
fell into the water. He could not
swim and so sank. When he arose
for the third time nobody dared to
save him, but an old weatherbenten
sailor, at the risk of his own life,
ran up the pier and, jumping in, rescued the man.
The gentleman had been worked
over quite a while before he became
coltscious, and when he realized the
situation he rewarded his rescuer
with what in our money would
amount to twenty-five cents. At this
the crowd which had gathered, knowing thc wealth, hooted and jeered.
But Burns, who was standing hy,
quieted them nnd snid: "Surely the

British Columbia Cupper company,
iB the be.-t mining news we have had j e(j ^, y(1|
tell our readers for many years.
Ths terms of the bond insure the
thorough development of property.
Mo one in this city has lost faith
in Franklin. On Ihe contrary, the
belief is more general at present than
ever before thnt all the camp needs
is system development to prove its
richness. With the McKinley developed to the shipping stage, and
transportation facilities to the camy,
Franklin should become a second

biggest gainer by the consummation
of tbese events. We feel certain thnt

Today's news from the coal fields

is of an encouraging nature. The
prospectH of an early settlement of
the dispute between the operators
tnd the miners are bright. The indication that harmony will be restored before lhe mining and smelting industries of the province are affected will be welcome news to the
people of the Boundary country,

about a realization of the prediction

A Seattle millionaire has been
sentenced to two years and six
months in the federal penitentiary
and to pay a fine of 85200 for using
the United States mail to defraud.
It is generally supposed ou tbis side
of the line lhat moneyed people in
the United are immune from the
operations of the law, and it is therefore reasonable lo suppose that lhe
defendant was mistaken for a tramp
by the sentencing judge. By the
way, we have never heard of a millionaire being sent to prison in this
country. Is it because there are no
millionaires here, or because they are
better than tbe foreign variety?
Five hundred and  fifty years be- ]
fore the Christian era Confucius said
thnt   ''reciprocity"    was    the   only

today, he might amend this aphorism by saying  that "reciprocity" is
the only word upon which the prosperity of the nation depends.
Brevity -
Brevity is often the bond between
effort nnd success.
The use of loo many words is
waste of double time—yoqr own
and the man who rends. ,
A long letter says, "Read me later
ou." "A short, pithy one, "Read
me now.and note what 1 say."
Busy men live every minute in
tbe day—reading superfluous matter is not living; it is trifling.
Men who won't trifle won't be
trifled with.
Get to the point once when you've
got a point to emphasize; if you've
several, keep them close company.
You must be concise to be understood; you must be brief to gel a
hearing. That's just what it means;
brevity gets a hearing. Many words
get passed by.
Brevity is economy.
In an advertisement every word
costs money; don't spend words
rashly. Vour advertisement nol only costs more; it ia less valuable—
double waste.

idealized; one glance will tell a tale,
one glance will make an impression

A   Germ   Disease   Which   is   Baffling
the Doctors and Alarming the
People Generally
It may be said that doctors are
only agreed tm two points regarding
♦ his much dreaded disease.
First, thnt it is a germ disease and
second, like all germ diseases can
only be fought with pure, rich blood.
Prevention is always the better way
and thnt is why we arc always talking about the wisdom of keeping the
blood pure and rich and the nerves
healthy and strong by using Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food.
Rich, red blood is a deadly foe to
disease germs whether they are germs
of infantile paralysis, of colds, of
consumption or uny other disease.
Don't let the blood get thin and
watery. Dpn't let the nerves get exhausted. The risk is too great. Every
dose of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food goes
to the formation of a certain amount
of pure, rich blood. For this reason
you arc certain to benefit by this
You need not wait until you have,
some form of paralysis before testing
this great medicine. Bo warned by
headaches, sleeplessness, irritability,
failing memory and power of concentrating the mind. Restore the system
while still you have something to
build on.

system by using Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food. 50 cents a box, 0 boxes for

Disease even in its worst form, and
that Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure it

proven in the case of little Edith Harris of this place.
In May, 1903, this little girl, then

Dodd's Kidney Pills cured her and
today she is as merry and healthy a

In a recent interview her father
says: "Edith is better than ever. She
has no return of dropsy since she wub

Another Modern Miracle
Locomotor Ataxia Cured
The Sufferer Had Been Given Up as Incurable by Several
Treatment Also Failed—Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills Worked the Miracle.
Before the discovery of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, locomotor ataxia
was considered an incurable disease. lt has heen fully demonstrated,
however, that this disease can be cured through the use of these pills,
where the treatment is persisted in, and tlte directions carefully followed.
Locomotor ataxia is a disease of the spinal cord, and first shows itself
in an inability to stand erect when the eyes are closed, or in the dark. It
iB characterized .by peculiar disturbances of the gait, and difficulty in governing the motions of the legs. One of the commonest and earliest signs is
a tired feeling, particularly noted in the knees and ankles. This sensation
is provoked by slight exertion, and is not relieved by rest. Often a numb
feeling is associated with it, and these two symptoms are always present
in the early stages. As the disease progresses, there is an increase in the
duration and extent of the, numb feelings, covering at times the foot alone,
then extending to the leg. The disease is usually of slow growth, and the
increase and intensity of the symptoms is not noticed, but its progress is
constant, and generally approaches a total luck of feeling in the legs, causing a wobbling gait and an entire inability to govern the steps. As the
disease progresses the putient -loses all control over bowels and water, and
becomes utterly helpless, and has to be cured for like a child.
In proof of the power of Dr. Williums' Pink Pills to cure this terrible
malady, Mrs. Sarah Jane Ruller, of Antler, Sask., says: "For Beven years
from 1900 to 1907, my son James wns afflicted with locomotor ataxia. During that time he was treated by several of the best doctors in the West, but
their treatment failed to be of any benefit, and he kept growing worse and
worse, till finally he lost all control of his limbs, and could not move at all.
I had to carry him from his bed to a chair, where I would have to tie him,
to enable him to sit up. He wns ns helpless as an infant; he lost all control of his kidneys nnd bowels, and wc daily looked for death to relieve him
of his suffering. In 1905 we sent him to Brantlon Hospital, hoping tbat
tbe treatment there would benefit him. In this, though, we were disappointed, and the hospital doctor advised me to take him home, as they said
they could do nothing for him. At this time a friend advised the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. Being willing to try anything in the hope of finding
relief for my boy, I bought a supply. In leas than three months I noted a
slight improvement in his condition. In six months he could walk once more
and Irom that on the improvement continued, till now he is fully cured and
once more able to attend school and do thc chores about the houBe. What
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done for him is truly wonderful, and I would
strongly recommend them to all sufferers, for they most certainly saved
my boy's life."
In substantiation of what Mrs. Ruller says, Mr. A. E. Steele, the well-
known lumber and coal dealer of Antler, writes: "With reference to what
Mrs. Ruller says concerning her son's cure by Pink Pills, I have no hesitation in saying that what she says is absolutely true in every particular, as
I am personally acquainted with the case."
This great cure is not the only one performed by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. They have brougbt thousands back to health and Btrength after
some of the best doctors in the country have been forced to give up the
case as incurable. Not only in cases of locomotor ataxia, but in cases of
partial paralysis, sciatica, acute rheumatism, and many other severe ailments have they been successful. The whole secret of their wonderful
success is in their power to make rich, red, health-giving blood—the one essential for good health. The pills are sold by all medicine dealers, or direct
by mail at 60 cents a box, or six boxes for $2.60, from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont. THE   SUN.   GRAND   FORKS,   B. ("!',

England's Rich Scored In Words That
Apply  Hare.
In a speech in London recently on
the subject of destitution among the
English masses, the Chancellor of the
Exchequer, Lloyd George, stat:d that
of the 4__0,000 adults who died lust
year in the British Isles five-sixths
were in poverty. They left no property
worth any one's while to pick up,
said the Chancellor—a few articles
of cheap clothing and furniture which
the broker's man would not sell for
The other sixth of the British adults
who died in the twelve month period
left $1,500,000,000. or £3O0,..0.U0.l
sterling in property of one kind and
another. Of that large, gigant.c surplus, approximately one-half — $750,-
000,000 — had been accumulated by
2,000 persons. Commenting on tnese
figures,  the  Chancellor  said:
"Diu the 350,000 who died in penury
lead lives- of indulgence, dissipat.on,
thriftlessness and extravagance 'I bid
the 2,000 people who lefl ha'.f that
enormous sum pursue careers of arduous toil, of frugality, of industry?
No! It is facts such as these—the
gigantic wealth at one end that a
man cannot spend in a lifetime of
luxury, and at the other end millions
burning with semi-hunger and the
pains of anxiety and poverty—which
are producing the murmurs at the
heart of England which show there
is  some disease  in  the  system."
Lloyd George, continuing, said England's annual bill for armaments is
now $350,000,000 — or $40 for every
household in the United Kingdom anil
were this burden removed Great Britain could afford to pay every wage
earner in the Kingdom an additional
four shillings a week.
The Chancellor is at the head cf
that faction in English politics which
is seeking to break up the gr?at land
holdings of the aristocracy and'establish a sort of peasant proprietorship,
something like that in France. H's
remedy for unemployment is small
farming, but on the genera! subject
of unproductive labor his views apply
in America hs Hi as in Brita'n and
have no political significance.
"it is u shallow but common fallacy," be said, "that inasmuch as the
rich find employment for und pay
good wages to those who personally
minister to their comfort, to that extent they are rendering a service to
the community. Quite the reverse.
They are withdrawing a large number of capable men and women from
useful and productive work."
Shipping In Naw Bruajswick.
People should not forget that New
Brunswick has more than one port.
St. John is so well boomed that the
other ports are often overlooked. La«t
year twenty-seven vessels took thirty
million feet of deals and lumber from
Cantpbellton. Dalhousie shipped forty,
three cargoes, Bathurst eleven, Chatham twenty-nine, Buctouche one,
Sackville five, Shediac eleven, and
Riverside six. The total shipments
of deals, spruce and other forest pro.
du"ts was over three hundred mil.
lion superficial feet, contained in 334
ve_.se.s. 'li'-.oe shipments went to
South America, to Australia, to Man.
Chester, London and Liverpool.
This gives inlanders some idea of
the value of tho ocean ports of New
Brunswick,   and  also  an   inkling  of
what the lumbering industry means to
.nat province.   It is interests such a,

Photography For Woman.
Photography as a work (or women
was brought Into prominence recently
when lhe national photographers held
tbeir convi'Mlou in Cleveland. A hundred or more women bad prints on exhibition »Vieh were of blgb grade.
Miss Lena McCauley. art critic. In an
address on photography as the art of
tbe hour, spoke with enthusiasm of It
as a work for women. She said In part:
"Photography Is tbe living art tbe
art of the hour, tbe art of today, lt la
tbe latest child of tbe pictorial arts
and the art most concerned in everyday living. We can think of no phase
of human activity In wblcb It has no
part for It is an aid not only of pleasure, of beauty aud decoration, but lt Is
an important factor lu literature. In
science. In Ibe manufactures. The surgeon depends upon tbe camera. Tbe
astronomer and tbe intcroscoptst use It
to extend Iheir vision and to record
mysteries and discoveries.
''Photography offers a wide field for
Ihe service of women. Woman la naturally an art lover and takes kindly to
instruction In urt Tbe profession la not
hedged by precedent as are low and
tbe medical calling. Woman enters on
the same platform as men. and. tbe
avenues of work being so varied, sbe
Is welcome and may do the work best
fitted for ber without standing beside
ber stronger brothers."

Dr. Ryle, who has given up tha
Bisbopric of Winchester, worth $30,«
800 a year, to become Dean of Westminster at a salary of $10,000, is a
fine example of muscular Christianity. When at Eton he became famous as a runner and jumper, and today finds chief recreation in walking,
tennis-playing, and mountaineering.
As a boy, too, he was very (ond of
climbing trees, and was often daring
enough to read his books while seated in the topmost branches. One day
he fell down from one of these eyries,
and would have been killed had it
not bee:: for a cushioned seat ut the
foot of the tree, wbich broke his tall.
A quaint hobby of his is collecting
portraits of Erasmus, the famous
Dutch scholar, of which he is believed
to huve n greater number than any
other man living.

The instinct of modesty natural to every woman is often a
great hindrance to the cure of womanly diseases.    Women
shrink from the personal questions of  the local  physician
which seem indelicate.    The thought of examination is abhorrent to them, and so they endure in silence a condition
of disease which surely progresses from bad to worse.

Circumstantial evidence appear to

Monday night a smelter employee,
on his way home from his work,
got se| aruled from his hat on account of the invigorating wind then
traveling through Ihe valley. The
hat took to the river, and the owner
followed until the icy water reached
his HTm pits. At this stage another
smelter employee, a fearlesB and
strenuous youth, happened to he
passing, and seeing the man in the
middle of the river, he plunged in
the cold water and brought the
man to shore. It is not thought
thnt the man was in any greater
danger of his life than is usually
caused hy a cold bath when the
thermometer is somewhere in the
neighborhood of the freezing mark;
hut of this fact his rescuer was, of
cauree, ignorant, and it should not
militate against hie chances of receiving the medal.    The   man went
home hatless.    His rescuer followed
effects   the   cold   water  with a few
jolts of Russell's Special.

The Hrcatheahlu Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational way to combat catarrh
is the Hyomei way, viz., by breathing.
Scientists for, years have been ngrced
on this point, but failed to get un antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and not destroy tbe tissues of
the membrane at the same time, until the discovery of Hyomei (pronounced High-onie.)
Hyomei is thu most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the inllumril
and germ-ridden membrane four or
five times a day, aud in a few days the
germs will disappear,
A complete Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs $1,00, and extra
