Mr. Taylor Says It Will be
Built by the Time tbe
Fair Opens
Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister of
public works, who is making a tour
of the province to ascertain the
needs of the different sections in the
nature of public improvements, arrived in the city yesterday afternoon from East Kootenay, accompanied by Harry Wright, M.P.P.,
of Nelson, and J. H. Schofield, M.
P.P., of Trail. Before dinner last
night the minister was taken down
to view the site of the old First
street bridge. The Agricultural association bas petitioned the department for a four-foot suspension foot
bridge at ihis point in order to facilitate travel to the fair grounds.
In tbe evening a public meeting
was held in the parlors at tbe Yale
hotel, a large number of business
men and ranchers being present.
Representations regarding needed
road improvements in the district
were made to the miuister by W.
K. C. Manly, J. T. Lawrence, D.
, Feigbner and others. Mr. Taylor,
in response, stated that the various
requests would he enquired into snd
action taken by tbe government according to their merits.
Fred Clark addressed the minister at considerable length in reference to the construction of a foot
bridge across tbe Kettle river at
First sireet, and the grading of the
road from the south end of the
bridge to the fair ground. Mr.
Clark emphasized the urgent need
of these improvements by stating
that tbe success of our next fair,
to a great measure, depended on
tbeir execution. The present mode
nf conveying visitors to tbe grounds
by way of the Fourth street bridge
was too round-about and too costly,
he said. He exhibited plans of
a four-foot suspension foot bridge,
with steel towers, the drawings having been made at the expense of the
Agricultural association. He urged
the government to adopt these plans,
and to have the bridge completed, if
possible, in time for tbe fair this
fall.
Mr. Taylor, in replying to Mr.
Clark, was non-committal as to the
intentions of the government in regard to this request. What steps
the government might decide to
tike in the matter he did not know,
hut he felt certain tbat if a bridge
was constructed it would not be a,
suspension foot bridge with steel
towers. He dismissed the subject
hy saying that the question of a
bridge or no bridge rested with tbe
member for Qrand Fords riding. It
was time for him to gel busy. Mr.
Miller replied that if he had the
power to decide, be would make a
requisition for the bridge.
Before leaving the city today Mr.
Taylor assured Mr. Clark that the
government would construct a regular wagon traffic bridge at First
street, and that it will be completed
1 for the fair tbil fall. Tbe cost of
tbe bridge, be said, will be about
(7000. Tbe road to tbe fair grounds
is also to be graded.
Tbis morning tbe minister had a
I conference with the city counoil in
reference to the Columbia street
bridge. Mr. Taylor said the government engineer would visit the city
shortly, and he would instruct bim
to inspect the bridge and make
a report regarding iu condition.
Mr. Taylor, accompanied by the
two member from West Kootenay
and the member for Grand Forks
riding, left immediately after lunch
today for Pboenix, W, A. Williams,
local manager of the Oranby smelter, volunteering to take the party
up the hill in bis automobile.

While Republic drillers are warmly
supported, teams from British Columbia are being strongly hacked by
miners from tbis province in Republic,

are desirous of hearing from the British Columbia drillers who are going,
that they may brace up for the contest accordingly.
Three thousand dollars in prizes has
been hung up for horse races, hub

and for various other sports. In fact,
the sports will occupy two full days
and nights, and run over into the
third. The games will be cautinued as
long as anyone will play, and that tho
preparations are making a strong impression abroad is evidenced by the
acceptance of an invitation by the
Spokane chamber of commerce and

Death ofS.fi. C. Miner
A dispatch from Montreal, dated
the 10th inst., slates that S. H. C.
Miner, who was prominent fur many
years in- mining and financial circles in Montreal and western Can
ada, died on that date at Granby,
Que., at the age of 76 years.
Mr. Miner was the founder of the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power coinpany, of this city,
and for a long lime one of its largest
shareholders. He was also connected with otber mining and smelting
enterprises in the west.
$400,000 DEAL
It Is Said the Granby Paid
That Sum for the Hidden Greek Mines
A telegram from New York last
Monday stated that the stockholders' meeting of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power
company bad decided to purchase
of 80 per cent of the Hidden Creek
mines on Goose bay, in tbe Portland
Canal district, the remaining 20 per
cent being retained by M. K. Rod-
gers.
The Granby company has had a
bond on the property for a year
past, and considerable development
work has been under tbe direction
of the management of the company.
So far as any reports given out are
concerned, the results appear to
have been entirely satisfactory. Tbe
bond expired tbe middle of tbis
month. The consideration is claimed
to be $100,000 for the 80 per cent,
which sets a value of half a million
on the mine.
It is reported tbat the Granby
people, following the plan which
they did in tbe Boundary of placing
their smelter a considerable distance from tbe mines, are figuring
on locating tbeir smelter at Prince
Rupert, but this dues not meet the
views of Mr. Rodgers, who thinks it
would be a better business proposition to build the smelter where the
ore is and haul the coke to the ore
instead of hauling tbe ore to tbe
coke, when tbe quantity of coke
used is only about one tenth the
tonnage of the ore.

The limit of uses to which a vacuum apparatus may be put seems to be

the vacuum tank is suspended across
the room horizontally with a series of

City Council
The mayor and Aid. Lequime,
Bonthron, Downey and Smith were
present at the council meeting on
Monday evening. Very little business was transacted.
Tbe usual number of accounts
were ordered paid. A departure from
the time-honored method of reading
them out in open meeting was made.
The council decided to spend tlUO
on road work between the Vale
bridge to Ihe Cascade road.
A resolution was adopted declaring that the city would pay its share
of the cost of the sidewalk in front
of the Eastern Townships hank
when the bank put the same in condition to conform wltb the other cement walks in tbe city.

Aid. Downey complained of the
provisions of the lawn sprinkling
being violated, and thu council decided to punish offenders by cutting
off their water supply.
Some other sulijccts were talked
over in an informal manner, but the
above about constitutes the business
transacted.
The Cooper bridge is soon to lie

"We are getting on," Venner whispered. "It limy surprise you. to hear
this, but I have suspected it lor sonic
little time. The so-called absent owner o! these houses is the man sitting
opposite Fenwick there. Now, do you
see something like daylight beiore
you? I wouldn't bave missed this
for worlds."
"We have certainly been lucky,"
Gurdon replied.
There was no time for any further
conversation. Ior the cripple was
speaking again. His voice was still
cold and hard and there was not the
slightest trace of fear in his manner.
"80 you have found that out," he
said. "You know that I am the son
of the unfortunate Frenchman who
was murdered by,a rascally Dutchman at your instigation. You thought
that once having discovered the se.
cret of the mine you could work it
to your own advantage. How well
you worked it to your advantage your
Ieit hand testijies,"
The jeer went home to Fenwick;
his great yellow face flushed, and b«*
half rose from |is chair with a threatening gesture.
"Oh, you can strike," the cripple
said. "I am practically helpless as*
far as my lower limbs arc concerned
and it would be just the sort ol cow-
ardly aet that would gratify a dirty
little soul like yours. It hurts me
to siit here, helpless and useless,
knowing that you are the cause ol alt
my misfortunes; knowing that, but
for you, I should be aB straight and
strong as the best ol them. And yet
you are not snfe—you are going to
pay tlie penalty ol your crime. Have
you had the first of your warnings
yetr
Fenwicji started in his seat; in the
looking glass the„ watchers could see
how ghastly his face had grown.
"I don't know what you mean,"
he muttered.
"Liar!" the cripple cried. "Paltry
liar! Why, you ure shaking Irom
head to foot now—Your fnce is like
that of a man who stands in the
shadow ol the gallows."
"I repeat, I don't know what you
mean," Fenwick said.
"Oh, yes, you do. When your no-
complice Van Fort foully murdered
my father, you thought that the two
of you would have the mine to yourselves; you thought *"*n would wor'i
it alone ns my father did, and send
you ill-gotten gnins bnck to England.
That is how the murdered man accomplished it, that is how he made
his fortune—nnd you were golntr to
do the same thing, both of you. When
you hnd all your arrangements made
you went down to the coast on certain business, leaving the rascally
Dutchman IHiitid. He wns quite
alone in the mine. There wns no one
within miles ol that secret spot. An.l
yet he vnnished. Van Fort wns never
heard ol again. The message ot his
fingers wns conveyed to his wile, Ior
she wns implicated in the murder * I
my father, and how she suffered you
already know. But you are n brnve
man—I give you credit for that. You
went bnck to the mine ngnin, determined not to be deterred by what hnd
happened. What happened lo you I
need not go into. Shnll I tell the
story, or will you be content wilh a
recollection ol your sufferings? It is
all the sninc t<> me."
"You are n bold mnn." Fenwick
cried. He was trcinblinu with the
rage that filled him. "Yon nre n
hold mnn to dely in" like this. No-
body knows thot I am here, nobody
knows that ymi are lm<- in your own
house ngnin. 1 could kill yon t.s yon
sit there, nnd not n soul would suffer
lor the crime."
The cripple Inughcd aloud; he seemed to be amused nl something.
"Really!" ho sneered. "Such ohonp
talk is wasted upon me. Besides,
what would you gain by so tinnooos-
•ary a crime, and how much bett.'r
off would you bo? You know ns well
as I do, disguise it ns you will, lli.it
the long arm hns reached tor yiii
across five thousand miles ol soa. nnd

over throe centuries the nativoj of
Mexico worked the Four Finger Mine

its secret remained. Then it was that

brave man, and nn adventurer to his
finger tips. Moreover, he wns a doctor. His healing art mnde those rough
men his friends, and when their time
came, my lather wns loft in possession
of thc mine. How thnt mine was
guarded and how the spirit of th.-
plnce took its vengeance upon intruders, you know too well. Ah, I hnve
touched  you now."
Fenwick had risen and was pacing
uneasily up and down the room. Al'
the dare-devil spirit joomod to hnve
left the man for the moment. He
turned a troubled lace oil the cripple
huddled in his chnir. He seemed
half inclined to temporise, nnd then,
with a short laugh, he resumed his
own seat again.
"You seem to bo very Bure of yout
ground," he sneered.
I    "Oh, I am,"  the cripple went on.
| "Whnt does it matter what becomes
I ol a melnncholy wreck like mysell?
! Doctors tell  me that in time I may
I become my old self, IniVI doubt   t:
I nnd as sure as I sit here, my injuries

It would have been n kindnes.. lo cut
I ymiT life short, but I had nnother use
for you thnn that.   And now, gradually  but  surely,  the net is closing in
around  you,  though you ennnot yet
see  its  meshes,  nnd you  nre  power-
U'ss to prevent the inevitable ond."
"You seem to have settled it all lo
yonr own satisfaction." Fenwick replied, "buit, you Inrget that I mny
have something to sny in the .matter.
When I discovorofl that you were in
London. I laid my plans for getting
you into my hnnds. I am in a posi
tion now to dictate terms, and you
hnve nothing to do but listen. I am
prepared to spare your life on one
condition. Now, kindly follow me
carefully."
•'I am listening," the cripple said,
coldly. "If you were not the blind
fool you seem to be you would know
that there could bo no conditions
between us; but go on. Let me hear
what you hnve to sny."
"I am coming to that. I want you
to tell me where I can find Felix
Zary."
Suddenly, without the slightest pro
monition, the cripple burst into n
hearty iaugh, rocking backwards and
forwards in a perfect ecstasy of enjoyment,
"Oh, that is what you are drlvinp
at?" he said. "So you think that 'f
you could get Felix' Zary out of the
way you would be absolutely safe?
Really, it is marvellous how nn otherwise clever mnn could be so blind to
the true facts of the case. My good
sir.  1 will give yon   Zary's   address
Fenwick wns obviously puzaled
Perhaps it was beginning to dawn
upon him thnt he had a mnn ol more
than ordinary intellect to grnpnlo
with. He looked Bearohingly at the
cripple, who was leaning back now
with eyes half closed.
"Hang me, il I con understand
you," he muttered, "I am in imminent danger ol my lite, though I
should bs safe enough if Felix Zary
and yourself wore out of the wny."
"And you are quite capable ot putting us out of the wny." tho erinni"
said gently. "Is It not so, my friend?'*
"Aye, I could, nnd I would." Fenwick said in a fierce whisper. "II you

su-e that 1 should wake in the morning. Nothing could trouble me then

it was only an accident that told me

At this pv nt Venner clutched Gurdon's arm and dragged him hurriod'y
across the landing down to the half
staironse. So quickly wns this done
that Gurdon. hnd no time to ask the
reason for it all.
"8omeone coming down the stair."
Venner whispered. "Didn't you hoar
a voice? I believe it is the white lndy
agnin."
Surely enough, looking upwards,
they could see the slim white figure
creeping down the stairs. Tho. girl
was crooning some little song to herself as she came nlong. She turned
into uie drawing-room nnd called
aloud to the cripple in the cha'r.
With an oath on his lips, Fenwick
motioned her away.
CHAPTER XIV
Master of the Situation.
"Whnt hnve you come bnck here
for?" Fenwick demanded. "You snid
you were tired, and thnt you were
going to bed long ngo." ,
The girl looked dreamily about her;
it was some little time before she -.<>-
peared to appreciate the significance
of Fenwick's question. She was more
like one who walks in her sleep thnn
a humnn being in the full possession
of understanding.
"I don't know," she snid helplessly. She rubbed her eyes as if there
had been a mist before them. "I was
so tired that I lay on the bed without
undressing and I fell fast p.sleep. Then
I had a dream. I dreamt that all 'he
miserable past was forgotten, and
that Charles wns with me once more.
Then he seemed to call me, nnd I
woke up. Oh, it was such a vivid
dream that I could not sleep again.
I wns so restless and anxious that I
mnde up my mind to come down
again, and as I wns pnssing a door
just now, it opened, and the face of
Charles looked out. It was only for
a moment, then two men behind him
dragged him back and the door was
closed once more."
"A foolish fancy," Fenwick growled.
"It was not." the girl cried almost
passionately. "I tried the door a moment later and it was'locked. T tell
you thut Charles 's in thot room. I
cannot go to b?d ngnin until I know
the truth. Oh. why do you keep ine
in suspense like this?"
"Mad." Fenwick muttered. "Mad
as a March hare. Why don't you send
her to un asylum 9"
"She is not mad," the cripple said
in a curiously hnrd voice. "Something
tells me" thnt she has mnde a discovery. You rascnl, is it possible that
you have Charles Evors under this
roof?"
Fenwick lnughed, but there wis
something uneasy nnd strained about
his mirth. He glnnced definntly at
the cripple, then his eyes dropped before the hitter's steady gaze,
"Why should I worry about Evors?"
he nsked. "The man h nothing to
me. and if by chance "
The rest of Fenwick's sentence wns
drowned in a sudden uproar which
seemed to break out in a room overhead. Th? tense silence wns broken
by thc thud of heavy Wows ns if
BOmeone wtrQ bunging on a door,
then came muttered shouts and yells
of unniistnknhle pnin. Hastily Fenwick rose from his sent nnd mnde in
Ihe direction of the door. He had
hardly advnncod two steps when he
found himself confronted with th;
rim of a silver-plnted revolver, which
the cripple wns holding directly 'n

The man who found a girl's name

"Better not save It any longer,"
the girl wrote back. "The egg must

Buddhism and Animal Lite,
It must be said of Buddhism that
It has left one indelible mark all
over India, China and the east, and
that is the teaching of gentleness and
kindness to one another and to animals. Buddha taught that life is but
a prolonged endeavor to escape from
suffering and that, therefore, to cause
others to suffer is the unlorgivabli
sin—Price Collier.

Vflias-i my boy was about three months
old. Ills head broke out with a rash which
was very itchy and ran a watery Hind. Wo
tried everything we could but lie roi worse
all the time, till it spread lo his arms, legs
and then to his entire body. He not so bad
lhat he came near dying. The rash would
Itch so that he would scratch till the blood
ran. I had to put mil tens on his hands to
prevent him tearing his skin. He was so
weak and run down that he took fainting
spells aa II he were dying. He van almost
a skeleton and his Utile bands were thin like
claws.
He was bad about eight months when we
tried Cuticura Remedies. 1 had not laid him
down in his cradle In the daytime lor a long
while. I washed him vith Culic-i.ru Hoap and
put on one application of Cuttcura Ointment
and hit was so soothed that he could sleep.
You don't know how glad I was he fell belter.
lt took one bog ol Cuticura Ointment and
pretty near one cake of Cuticura Hoap to cure
him. 1 think our boy would have died but

If It had nol been tor Cuticura floss*
and Cuticura Ointment, I think my baby
would never have gotten over her ectema.
For hve months she was covered with it,
beginning with Iter bead, and going riglit
down 10 her feet ll started with white
pimples, then they filled up, burst, and
started lo run, end she gradually got worse
'until she was red-raw all over ber body.
When we washed her. she used to bleed.
We had her under the doctor's care lor seven
weeks, but he did her only temporary good,
then she would be aa bad as ever, suffering
terribly with itching and burning.
Then Ihe Cuticura Remedies were recommended to us by our friends. We got some
Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, and
the tlrst bol gave her great reliel. from that
time Ihe pimples started lo dry up and fall
off In little white scabs. Baby waa always
worse when she got warm In bed until we
started with Cuticura Hoap and Cuticura
Ointment, and then she began to rest.
We used to be awake all night with her, and
nothing did her any good, bui since using
Cuticura Remedies we can rest all night.
We used only two boxes of Cuticura Ointment and two cakes of Cuticura Hoap, and
thev cured her completely ol her eczema.

The trouble lhat affected my Utile girl
darted in her head like ringworm. Then it
went all over ner head. The head swelled,
and It went tn the lorm of mailer and all the
hair came off. It was very itchy. She could
not sleep and I began to Ihink the would
never get better. 1 tried a lot ol advertised
remedies but all to no avail. Hhe was like
this lor over three months until 1 tried a vol
ot Cuticura Ointment. I had not used that
ixit lielore she waa completely cured. Tlie

I have a Utile baby almost a year old.
When it waa two monilu old lt got enema
to top ol both ber hands, on her lace and
Inside her noee and mouth. She refused to
drink and one ol ber eyea almost closed up.
A hard cruet lormed aod would crack open
and Ihe blood ran out. II Itched ao frightfully
that tbe poor little girl could not rest. We had
to keep mitts on her hands to keep her Irom
scratching al her lace and her mother was
forced to ait In a rocking chair with the baby
day and night. We had a very good doctor
and he did all lhat he poeslbly could lo relievo
the baby's torture but the results were not
what we had looked for.
We lot some Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment, and In three days the crusts began
to come off. In a week there waa no more
scab and now the baby In cured without a
mark, sleeps soundly In her cradle and her

, When our little boy Andrew was ,our
monilu old, little red spots came on hts
head and lace. Then they spread all over
hit head, ao I look him to my doctor and he
gave me an ointment to use. The spots
became broken aoree, and the ointment didn't
do any good. Then I look him to Ibe hospital.
I nev gave me ointment which did no good.
He wat Iben a maas of aores on the head and
lace, and the child waa suffering dreadfully.
He would scratch the Bona till ihey bled, so
we had lo tie hla hands. The child was
crying all the lime with the terrible sore.
Then I aaw Cuticura Soap and Ointment
advertised, and tried tbem. 1 saw a great
difference In a few dayi. Ihe sores healed
up quickly, so I kept on using Cuticura
Hoap and ointment perhaps every other day.
Now the child ta completely cured, he Is
healthy and sleeps well. He suffered lor
about seventeen months before I tried the
Cuticura Soap and Ointment. We had given
him up as hopeless, and someone said he
would be better dead, his suiTeilng was so
terrible. I waa almost out of my mind,

Faderewski arrived in a small western town about noon one day and decided to take a walk ill the afternoon.
While strolling along he heard a
piano, and, following the sound, came
to a house on which was a sign reading:
"Miss Jones.   Piano lessons 25 cents I
an hour." I
Pausing to listen    he    heard    the j
young woman trying to play one of
Chopin's nocturnes, and not succeeding very well.
Paderewski walked up to the house
and knocked. Miss Jones came to
the door and recognized him at once.
Delighted, she invited him in and he
sat down and played the nocturne as
only Paderewski can, afterward spending an hour in correcting her mistakes. Miss Jones thanked him and
he departed.
Some months afterward he returned
to the town, and again took the same
walk.
He soon came to the home of Miss
Jones, and, looking at the sign, he
read:
"Miss Jones. Piano lessons $1.00
an hour.   (Pupil ol Paderewski.)"

Swift Current, Sask. (Special).—
Seventy-six years of age, but strong
and healthy, Mr. J. P. Lackey of this
place is one of the grand old men of
the prairies. But Mr. Lackey has
not always enjoyed his present
health. "For twenty-five years," be
says, "I suffered from Rheumatism,
which I inherited. I was nervous.
My limbs would swell and I had a
*vere pain across the back. I also
had a heavy dragging sensation
1 across the loins. I am a well man
to-day and I attribute it all to three
boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills. My
Rheumatism and Kidney Disease
have entirely disappeared."
Mr. Lackey is showing his appreciation of Dodd's Kidney Pills by
buying them and presenting them to
his lriends. He has joined the great
army of those who have learned from
their own experience that as a giver
ol new life to old and young Dodd's
Kidney Pills stand without an equal.

When Nye Helped Riley
Bill Nye and James Whitcomb
Riley, when they were giving readings together, were on a train one day
when Nye abstracted Riley's ticket
from his hatband, the hat with the
ticket stuck in the band being laid on
the seat between them.
"They'll want our tickets here,
Jim," said Nye casually, and Riley
began an exhaustive search ior his
missing ticket. When he had searched everywhere at least ten times over,
and looked on seat and floor again
and again, but in vain, he exclainled:
"Say, Nye, I have lost my ticket!
They'll make me pay over again."
"Pay over again!" said Nye. "I
wouldn't. I'd see them hanged first.
You get under the seat, Jim, and it'll
be all right."
So Riley got under the seat and lay
there gasping witli nervousness as the
ticket collector came to the compart-
ment.
"Tickets, please," said the conductor.
Nye handed the man two tickets.
"Two tickets here, sir! Where's
the other gentleman?"
"Oh," replied Nye nonchalantly,
"the other gentleman prefers to travel
under the seat."
And from under the seat came poor
Riley ignominiously and as mad as a
wet hen.
13 WEEKS IN HOSPITAL
PURIFIEDJIS BLOOD
Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills
Healed Mr. Wilson's Soros
When the sewers of the body—bowels,
kidneys and skin ducts—get clogged up,
the blood quickly becomes impure and
frequently sores break out over the body.
The way to heal them, as Mr. Richard
Wilson, who lives near London, Ont.,
found, is to purify the blood. He
writes:
"For some time I had been in a low,
depressed condition. My appetite left
me and I soon began to suffer from indigestion. Quite a number of small sores
and blotches formed all over my skin. I
tried medicine for the blood and used
many kinds of ointments, but without
satisfactory results. What was Wanted
was a thorough cleansing of the blow],
and I looked about in vain for some medicine that would accomplish this.
At last Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills
were brought to my notice, and they are
one of the most wonderful medicines I
have ever known. My blood wu purl-
fled in t very short time, sores healed up,
my Indigestion vanished. They always
have a place in my home and are looked
upon as the family remedy."
Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills cleanse
the system thoroughly. Sold by all
dealers at 25c a bo*. 0
Cams Away No Bstter and Then Two
Boxes of Zam-Buk Worked
Complete Curs.
Mr. Fred. Mason, the well known
upholsterer and mattress manulac-
turer of St. Andrews, N. B., says:—
"I had eczema on my knee, which
caused me terrible pain and inconvenience. The sore parts would itch
and burn and tingle and then when
rubbed or scratched, would become
very painful. I tried various remedies but got no better, so I decided
to go to Montreal and take special
treatment. I received treatment at
the Montreal General Hospital for 13
weeks, but at the end of that time I
was not cured, and almost gave in.
A friend advised me to give Zam-Buk
a trial, and although I had little
hope of it doing me good, I took the
advice. Almost as soon as applied
Zam-Buk stopped the itching and
the irritation. I persevered with the
balm and it was soon evident that
it would do me good. Each day the
pain was reduced, the sore spots began to heal, and by the time I had
used a few boxes of Zam-Buk I was)
cured." ,
For eczema, blood-poisoning, piles,
ulcers, sores, abscesses, varicose ulcers, bad leg, sore leet, blisters, insect stings, poisoned wounds, cuts,
burns, bruises and all skin injuries
and diseases, Zam-Buk is without
equal. Zam-Buk Soap should also be
used for washing all wounds, ecste-
mous patches and sores. All druggists and stores sell Zam-Buk at 50c.

Address all oominitiiioatiolis to

Phons Bit Grand Bosks. H.C
FRIDAY, JUNK 16,   1911
As The Sun will not again prior
to the crowning of King George, it
may not be out of plnce for us to
assure his majesty that Grand Foiks
and The Sun are Ht ill loyal to the
empire; that they intend to remain
so, and that they wish him a long
and prosperous reign, free from foreign wars and internal strife. We
make these simple protestations of
loyalty without harbouring any anticipation of  receiving knighthood.
Senator Curtis, of Kansas, is not
in favor of the reciprocity agreement.
He thinks that the loss to the United States through the ratification
■ of the treaty would be proportionate
to Canadian gain. Tbis paper believes that the Canadian gain would
lie proportionate to the gain of the
United Slates, and this is the view
taken of the question by the masses
and all statesmen who have not been
hypnotized by the special   interests.
There is a strange variety of contradictory articles in the anti
reciprocity journals these days. On
the editorial pages the editois nre
talking themselves hoarse about the
ratification of the treaty robbing
Canada of her natural resources. In
the news columns items frequently
creep in stating that Washington is
dumping her surplus lumber on the
llritish Columhia market.
What possible incentive can there
be for citizens to endeavor to improve their property with money,
mostly obtained from outside points,
nnd thus advertise the city and advance the growth of the community,
when they are at the mercy of the
whims of people who are in tbe
habit of celebrating periodic birthdays by sleeping in the streets, or of
traveling psalm singers who have not
n dollar's worth of realty interest in
tbe city?
The Liberals carried twenty-seven
of the thirty-five seals in the general
e ections in Nova Scotia on Tuesday. The reciprocity agreement
was one of the issues in the campaign. It is an indication of how
the country will go if the measure is
submitted to tbe people.
The highest tribute that can be
paid Mr. Goodove, M.I'., as an orator is, that he possesses tbe faculty
nf delivering readable speeches on
subjects wbich ire unfamiliar to
Min.
syndicated articles sent out by the
Toronto "interests." One of the
most vigorous of these protests is
from the Gazette of Candnuff, Sask.
It says it has a, pamphlet from the
hands of the Canadian National
league which is a piece of spurious
literature in its entirety, having as
its end in view the killing of Canadian progress. It iB nothing more
nor less than a Conservative party
whine. It is gotten out to yell out
some parly effect. It has that bogey,
annexation, as one of its leaders.
Tbe whole fiction is a disgrace to any
intelligent human brain. It is a
compilation by the capitalists who
desire to lord it over Canada like
they have done in the United States
and hate to see their grip lost.—
Victoria Times.
The morning paper, with an n-re
pressible burst of enthusiasm, concludes a paragraph on the loyalty of
General Botha with the question:
"Wby, then, should we fear that people of out- own blood, cherishing out-
own traditions, educated in our own
sentiments, will be cajoled or frightened into breaking up the empirel"
We never could understand why.
Guess we must ask G. H. Barnard,
M.P. He will know even if he
doesn't. — Victoria Times.
Canadiau Gold Pieces
The final approval at London of
the designs for tbe new Canadian
five and ten dollar gold pieces is expected at Ottawa shortly. By autumn the new coinage will be installed. Tbey will be in intrinsic
value and size tbe same as till
American coins of like value, and
will probably be accepted at par in
the United States, thus proving a
great convenience to the Canadian
who now goes across the border unprovided with American money.
Practically the only gold coins in
use in Canada at present are the
American gold pieces, and the number of these in this country is surprisingly large. On December 31
last the receiver general for Canada
had no less than $1)8,000,000 worth,
thus showing' the large demand
tbere is for a gold coinage in Canada.

Bi<? Potato Prize
Editor Evening Sun.
Victoria, June 14—Will you
kindly, through the medium of your
valuable paper, give publtcity to the
following communication recently received in this department, with regard to the $1000 Stilwell trophy to
be given for the best exhibit of potatoes at the American Land and Irrigation Exposition, to be held nt
Madison Square Garden, New York,
November, 3 So 1_!, 1911, via:
"At the American Land ami Irrigation Exposition, to be held nt Math
sou Square Garden, New York, November 3 to 12, 1911; there is a
$1000 trophy offered for the best exhibit of late potatoes. The exhibit
does not necessarily nead to belong to
one individual, but may be exhibited
hy a department of agriculture, farmers' organization, or by a district.
The main point is that the 81000
Stilwell trophy is to be given for the
best exhibit of potatoes represented by
marketable quality, smooth appear
ance, flush eyes and uniformity of
size. The yield of each variety per
acre, which acre must be officially
surveyed, must be sworn to by the
grower, and attested by two or more
reputable witnesses,
"It will readily appear to you, that
the winning of a trophy of this character will advertise your province at
this great exhibition extensively. We
are confident that splendid potatoes
can be grown in western Canada, and
are very anxious that one, or all of
the four of the western provinces
shall take this matter up in a system
atic and caret nl manner, supplying a
creditable exhibit, so that, if possible,
you muy win the handsome trophy
referred to.
''Will it not be possible for your
department to take up this matter!
We would like to hive a reply from
you staling what you would be prepared to do in .the way of gathering
this exhibit."       Wm. E. Scott,
Deputy Minister.
these constantly arriving accessions
to the permanent exhibit, the commissioner will be in a position to always have the British Columbia display fresh and attractive, building up
its quality daily as any portion begins
to -show signs of stateness or deterioration. Ill addition U> the fresh
fruit, which will, of course, be specialized, the display for these eastern
exhibitions will include a lat(;e collection of bottled fruits, and also of
British Columbia's forest wealth.
The three most important exhibition centres on the list for 1911 are
Winnipeg, Uegina anil, of course, the

Thinning Fruit
Tl,inning fruit in not such a simple
matter after all.
Professor W. H. Wiults, horticulturist at the Idaho experiment »U-
tion, points out that it is time to begin thinning as soon as the grower
can determine which is the best fruit
on the spur and after the early drops
are over.
It takes a little experience to know
which is the best little apple, and a
little more experience to tell when the
early drops are over.
Another rule given by the professor is that one fruit to a spur is sufficient, but he follows this with the
statement that the rule cannot serve
as an accurate guide in all classes, for
some trees are more able to bring to
maturity than others. Here, again,
is need of a little insight a*< well as
experience to jndge of the individual
capacity of the tree for fruit production.
The professor adds that a knowledge of the yield in past years is quite
essential to the aid in judicious thinning; to know how much the tree has
done in the past, so as to judge what
it can profitably do in the present.
Thinning fruit' is abuut like any
other branch of farming. It is easy to
make rules; not so ersy to know where
exceptions come in.

The mere mention of pnuemonia
and consumption causes a person to
shudder, but a cold u suoh a common thing that it is too often left
alone until these other ailments develop from it.
You can readily cure throat and
chest colds, croup and bronchitis, by
using Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed
and Turpentine. This medicine is
both thorough and far-reaching in its
influence on the system. For this
reason its merits are well known and
its sales enormous.
But there are at least four imitations of Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed
and Turpentine. And imitations are
always a little cheaper, how else
would they sell. They are never sold
on their own merit but on the merit
of the article they imitate.
Their likeness is in nnme only,
and when you arc in need of medicine you don't want to depend on a
name or imitation. Every bottle of
the genuine bears the portrait and
signature of A. W. Chase, M.D., the
famous Receipt Book author. SB

BANISH PIMPLES
ANDJERUPTIONS
IN THE SPRING    MOST    PEOPLE
NEED A TONIC MEDICINE
If you want thc best of health and
new strength in tlie spring you must
build up your blood with a tonic
medicine. Following the long, indoor winter months most people feel
depressed and easily tired. This
means that the blood is impure and
watery. It is this state of the blood
that causes pimples and unsightly
eruptions. To this same condition is
due attacks of rheumatism and lumbago; the sharp, stabbing pains of
sciatica and neuralgia; poor appetite, frequent headaches and a desire
to avoid exertion. You cannot cure
these troubles by the use of purgative medicines—you need a tonic, and
a tonic only, and among all medicines there is none can equal Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for their tonic,
life-giving, nerve-restoring powers.
Every dose of this medicine makes
new, rich blood which drives out impurities, stimulates every organ and
brings a feeling of new health and
energy to weak, tired out, ailing
men, women and children. If you are
feeling out of sorts give this medicine a trial and see how quickly it
will restore the appetite, revive
drooping spirits and nil your veins
with new, health-giving blood.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold

Drusllla Fowler detested the Frank-
Una' pet goat, for lt bad all but devastated ber smuli domain during tbe
summer. Flower beds hud beeu
trampled, shrubs uprooted, and, aa for
the little kitchen garden near the
orchard, the succulent bends of lettuce
and later the bard cabbage balls bnd
fallen victims to the Insatiable appetite ot Billy tbe goat
Of course tbe Franklins were very
eorry about It and tried to confine
Billy within a hastily constructed
fence, but that sagacious and resourceful animal had viewed the structure
of wood and wire with a contemptuous eye before he utterly demolished
It and resumed his invasion of Drusll-
la's garden. Drusllla bated him, and
tbe Franklins loved bim.
Thia crisp February morning Dm-
■ilia came to the glaaa door tbat led
from ber sitting room Into the south
■porch, and, standing there bathed In
the sunlight ahe planned her garden
* for the coming year.
Now, Drusllla ln ber mlnd'a eye
> could see the beds blooming once
more wltb rosea and pinks and sweet
willinms,   phlox  and  marigolds  and
* mignonette,  while  th*  baffled  Billy
peered through the palings.
Little Bessie Franklin ran through
ber own yard waving an envelope
i frantically. "Ob, mother," Drusllla
beard ber shout, "somebody haa tent
ne a valentine!"
80 tbla waa Bt Valentine's day.
iDrusllla's red lips pressed Into a thin
red line aa abe remembered tbat there
waa one otber thing la the world ahe
detested as heartily as ahe did tbe goat
Billy, and that waa St Valentine's
day. Tbe hot color flew to her cheek*
as ahe recalled events which had happened ten yeara before and wblcb bad
thereafter made that anniversary a detestable day.
Sbe bad not been engaged to Gregory Ware, but on the 13th of February
Gregory bad aaid to ber tbat tbere
was something to be settled between
tbem. "You'll know tomorrow, Dru-
allla, and you'll believe wbat you get
won't you?" be bad whispered In an
agony of embarrassment for Gregory
waa the shiest man ln tbe world.
And Drusllla bad guessed that be
*wae to confess bis love ln a valentine,
end she was radiant wltb happiness.
for ahe would joyfully believe anything he might say to her ln tbe tender missive. 80 she had told bim shyly that abe would see what It said and
ao put him off while ber heart was
beating wildly.
Then the next day bad come, aud
there waa no valentine, and tbe next
and tbe next and It had never come.
Drusllla bnd grown very stiff and hurt
end Gregory had never come to ask an
explanation, and after awhile he went
eway to another village and found
work tbere. and Little River aaw bim
only occasionally and Drusllla not at
ell.
80 Drusllla always avoided going to
tbe postoffice on Valentine's day tbat
abe mlgbt evade even tbe appearance
of being Interested In tbe anniversary
ef the good aaint But today-and she
frowned aa ahe recollected' lt—tbere
waa a matter of sending a money order to tbe city tbat must be attended to, for an Impecunious cousin
bad written and askcl for a loan to
tide over a financial difficulty. Dm-
allla Fowler wu not a shirker where
duty presented itself, and ao she swallowed her repugnance and buttoned
herself Into a thick warm cloak and
pinned on her most becoming hat for
Drusllla had pride ln ber appearance.
Her adventures began from the very
moment she passed ont of her own
yard Into the street Tbe Franklins'
goat waa hungrily browsln* on tbe
privet hedge that surrounded hla master's yard, and as he turned bis little
aril eye on Drusllla abe Involuntarily
attend a vlcloua little "Beat!"
Billy wheeled about on tbe pivot of
his wind legs, reared himself menacingly, dropped bis head and made one
dive after Drusllla Fowler. Bnt ahe
had gone. With tbe speed of an antelope ahe bad picked np tbe skirts of
ber long cloak and darted down tbe
street tbe angry goat leaping after
ber wltb Increasingly swift gait
Hen dasbed to bead bim off and
dodged bis threatening horns; women
screamed and took to the opposite
side of the street; children scattered
like chaff until there only remained
on the long street tbe flying red cloaked form of Drusllla Fowler and the
plunging gray coated Billy after her.
Tbe flrst building Into wbich sbe
mlgbt safely turn waa tbe postoffice.
It stood at the corner of the main
street and the road tbat ran to the
river.   The doors were usually wide
open even ln this wintry weather, ana
there wonld be friendly bands to help
her ln and to close the portals against
the Invasion of Billy. Once sbe glanced behind and saw his waving gray
whiskers and the glitter of bis evil eye
and renewed her speed.
At last the postoffice. Drusllla dashed across the street up the wide stone
steps and reached the tup as tbe trended goat clattered his hoofs on the
bottom one. Drusllla was conscious
that big familiar hands, warm and
friendly, grasped her ovm and drew
her to a place of safety behind a tall
broad shouldered flgnrs—Oncvry Via* *>
The goat bounded np the steps and
slipped through tbe closing doors, his
poofs skating along tbe oiled • floor;
then he suw bis reflection In tbe glass
front of tbe tier of letter boxes and
paused, staring, belligerent bleating
angrily.
Some one laid a tentative band oh
bis back and was rewarded with a
vicious lunge. Billy renewed his gate
in the glass. He pawed the floor angrily; he bleated once more, and then
before the horrified onlookers could
prevent him be bent his bead and
crashed violently Into tbe glass front
shattering It ln a thousand flying fragments and toppling the whole structure on to the startled postmistress
and her assistant
Fortunately nobody was hurt not
even Billy the goat Tbe glass front
of letter box No. 13 was Impaled on
one born, and on the other was a fancy
embossed envelope tbat Inclosed a valentine. Somewhat subdued, be was
captured by several citizens of Little
River and tethered to the doorknob.
Then one and all went forward to assist ln restoring order ln the chaos ot
mall matter.
Drusllla, pale and frightened, still
hovered In tbe corner Into wblcb Gregory Ware had thrust her and which he
had left without a word to help clear
np tbe wreckage. Fanny Blcknell, the
sharp faced, sandy haired little postmistress, pointed e skinny flnger at
Drusllla. while her little dark eyea
flashed resentfully.
"I declare, Drusllly Fowler, ain't you
got any better sense than to tag that
goat of the Franklins Into the post-
office? I expect the gov'ment will get
after yon. You've broke all the rules
of the office. It says no dogs allowed
Inside, and that means goats and sucb.
I thought you didn't take no stock ln
tbe Franklins' goat"
"I don't," retorted Drusllla. with
spirit "He chased me all tbe way
down here. He's the bane of my life.
You can look to Mr. Franklin for damages."
"I shall." said Miss Blcknell acidly,
and then, addressing the men who
were picking up glass preparatory to
raising the fallen section of boxes, sbe
added: "What yon men fussing over
there? Remember that's all gov'ment
mall matter you're handling."
"Picking aome of these letters ont ot
the dirt under yonr boxes. Mlsa
Fanny," said Gregory Ware grimly.
"I should recommend that you hnve
something done abont your boxes. The
whole thing Is cracked and warped,
and the mall box la full of cracks
Look under bere where lt stood!" He
pointed to a square dust outlined
space on the floor where several yellowed and dirty missives were mingled
with bits of dirt and splintered glass.
"You're the postmistress, Miss Fanny.
You'd better see what these letters are
doing underneath the mailing box."
He stood back while tbe fussy little
woman came forward and picked tbe
letters out of the accumulated soil.
Sbe scanned them closely—tbere were
three In all—and then sbe looked hesitatingly around the office.
"Tbese muat have slipped through
the crack In the mailing box," she
said after awhile. "Here's a bill from
Fryer & Kermlt tor Anson Howell.
Come to think of It, Anson's dead this
five years, and Fryer & Kermlt went
bankrupt anyway, so there's no barm
done there! And here's a postal card
for Mrs. Beebe, saying that Burna &
Co. ain't got the sample of blue
clotb sbe asked for, and. land. It's
dated two yeurs back, so that don't
make no matter either, because Mrs.
Beebe's wearing black now anyway.
And—here's a letter for—mercy me,
are you there, Drusllly Fowler? Here,
Gregory, give that letter to Drusllly
while I boss these men." Sbe thrust
a yellowed embossed envelope Into
Gregory's band and turned away.
He came toward Drusllla, his eyes
fixed on the missive In bis hand, bis
face wblte beneath Its coat of tan.
When he spoke bis voice waa tblck
with emotion.
"Drusllla, here's a letter Mlsa Fanny
Just found under the mailing box.
Like as not It's been tbere all this last
ten years, ever since I mailed It on*
night before Valentine's day. I never
understood—wby—you—never answered It" be said with alow emphaala as
she took tbe letter from bim. "Now 1
know, but I suppose It's too late.
Bbe opened the missive with shaking
fingers and drew from within a lacy
and flowered valentine. Wreaths of
roses and forgetmenota surrounded
two loving hearts, and underneath wu
a printed verse tbat waa heavily underscored In Ink:
While I protest my heart It thlnt
1 would Inquire if thin* tfi min*.
If thia be trua pray give a algn
To say you'll bt my valentine.
And the name of Gregory Ware was
signed to It and tbe date waa ten
years agol Drusllla stared at lt until
all the coldness had fled from her eyes
and a great tenderness Invaded her
face. Ashamed to lift her betraying
glance to his serious Inquiring one, she
pressed tbe valentine with unconscious
grace to her heart
"Oh, this ought to hare come before
—It ought to bave come before!" sbe
cried passionately.
"Is It too late now, Drusllla ?" asked
Gregory softly. "It's never too late to
be happy—If you want to be," he suggested.
"I want ro be." sighed Drusllla contentedly, and then later she added,
"Who would have thought that goat
of Franklin's would prove a blessing
ln disguise?"
Little Itiver folk watched agape, ond
nobody but those two understood why
Gregory Ware nnd Drusllln Kowler
led the Franklins' pet goat home with
such solicitude or why Gregory bought
It afterward and changed its name to
Valentine.

"The Hermit Pter."
The Marquis ol Clanricarde has
passed his seventy-eighth birthday.
He descends, as do one or two other
Irish peers, irom the kings ot old
Ireland. Chiels of Connaught, who,
in the dim and (ar-off days before
the Anglo-Norman Conquest, kept
kingly state in a rough and ready
way, says Modern Society. The pres.
ent peer is the second marquis of a
third creation, and fifteenth earl.
Lord Clanricarde is a great judge
of Dutch pictures and of blue china.
He haB been in terrific hot water with
hiB Irish tenants, and has, seemingly
In disgust, withdrawn himself to The
Albany—where he lives a hermit life
with his beloved canvasses and porcelain.
One most beautiful possession—
which is neither a painting nor a
teapot—Lord Clanricarde greatly
cherishes—a magnificent Cinquecento
jewel, which he inherited from his
mother, who was the only daughter
of the great Canning. It Is formed o!
enamel and diamonds—a huge plaque
known as the "Hercules and the
Diamond Sword." Lord Clanricarde
has generously lent thia treasure to
various art exhibitions, where it
never fails to attract attention. In.
deed, we believe that Sir Julius
Wernher considers it to be one of the
three greatest Cinquecento jewels in
the world.
Lord Clanricarde adopts the orthography "Clanrikarde," asserting that
the name was 50 spelt by eleven of
his predecessors, but the Peerages
insist on their way of spelling the
word.
From Butcher's Counter to Pulpit.
For thirty-eight years Rev. William
Cuff, the famous pastor ol the Shore-
ditch Tabernacle, has worked amongst
the poor of the East End of London.
He began life as a butcher, but, to
quote his own words, "Early in my
1 career I abandoned the carving of
carcasses for the curing of souH."
And few men have done more to al-
\ leviate the distress and bring sunshine
into the lives of the masses in the
East-End. His work has been full of
interesting and amusing experiences.
He not only preaches to the people,
but helps to feed them, and, on one
occasion, thought he would assist his
wife in clothing them. "So I took a
little child," he says, "and measured
it, up and dressed it In i'.e bonniest
of Buits. 'What do you think of that?'
I said to the mother of the child.
'Well, I suppose you know best pastor,' she replied; "but you've gone and
made a boy ol 'er I"

Robert Louis Stevenson and Edmund Gosse were promenading in
Edinburgh one afternoon when they
met a stalwart beggar, whom Gosse
refused to aid. Stevenson, however,
wavered and finally handed him a sixpence. The man pocketed the coin,
forebore to thank his benefactor, but,
fixing his eyes on Gosse, said in a loud
voice:
"And what is the other little gentleman going to give me?"
"In future," said Stevenson as they
strode coldly on, "I shall be 'the
other little gentleman'."—London

Y*ggm*n.
A "yegg" or "yeggman might be
defined as a cross between a tramp
ami a burglar. "Yeggmen" travel
about the country always by stealing
or begging rides on freight trains, and .
their operations are generally confln-
eil to banks or postoffices in the smaller towns. Eventually "yeggmen" are
likely to come to grief through the
loss of a leg or an arm, when they
take to begging, and become known u
"ex-yeggmen."

"Well, Missus Mulcahy, Oi see be

British   Sea   Captain    Hu   Looped*
Glob* 61 Tlm**.
If Ulysses could come to life again
he would probably have a very short*
leue ot existence, for the shock on*
learning how his globe-trotting record!
has been hopelessly eclipsed would
almost certainly prove fatal.
j In these days ol rapid and restless
locomotion, to have girdled the earth
a dozen times, or to have made ten
thousand crossings of the English
Channel is a teat which scarcely deserves notice. Certainly, it is one at
which Captain Alexander Simpson, of
the Aberdeen Line, could afford to
smile.
When, a short time ago, the fine
Aberdeen liner Pericles was unlortun-
ately lost off Cape Leewin, West Australia, with all her mails and cargo.
Captain Simpson, her gallant commander, was actually making his
eighty-first voyage round the world,
a record which, we believe, no other
sailor has ever rivalled. When this
undeserved disaster gave a pause to
the captain's record-breaking he had
covered on the sea the enormous distance of 2,070,000 milet.
And yet it iB said that this record,
amazing as it is, hu been eclipsed by
another seafaring men, who, however,
is not a ssilor. The actual holder of
the world's marine record is Mr. H.
Stevens, late chief wine steward on
board the Cunard liner Lucania.
Starting when a mere boy u a pantry
helper in the service of the Cunard
Line, Mr. Stevens spent forty years
in constantly crossing and recrossing
the Atlantic until, at the time of his
retirement, he could boast that his
aggregate mileage on the "herring-
pond" exceeded three millions, the
equivalent of more than 120 circuits
of the earth at the Equator.
The man who ia proud of hsving
crossed from Dover to Calais or from
Folkestone to Boulonge a toore or
more times will think less of his
record when he learns that one man
has made the Channel-crossing no
fewer than 30,000 timet, and did not
think much ot the f *at either. This
modest traveler was Captain Bennett,
who, a dozen years ago, retired Irom
the South-Eaetern and Chatham
steamship service vith a fifty-three
years' record to his credit.
There are many captains in tbe
Australasian trade who have been
round the world between thirty and
forty times; and Captains Ismay and
Glatebrook can each bout nearly
forty circuits of the earth.
But all these records, stupendous
as they are, pale into insignificance
before that of Mr. Benjamin Jeans,
who for fifty-four years wu guard on
the London and Birkenhead express,
and who, at a meeting held to present
him with an address and a purse ot
gold on his retirement, made the
startling announcement that he bad
traveled on the railway tbe almost
incredible distance of 4,000,000 miles,
or more than the equivalent of 100
journeys round tbe Equator.
A Wonderful Literary Record.
Some interesting particulars are
given in Tbe Bookman concerning
Mr. Percy Fitzgerald, who has 200
volumes of biographies, novels, essays,
travels, and miscellaneous literature
standing to his credit in the British
Museum catalogues. Mr. Fitzgerald
enjoys the distinction of having both
written a life of Boswell and made
the bronze statue ol him that was set
up at Lichfield a little while ago; and
he has just completed a statue ol Dr.
Johnson, whose life he has edited
three times. Mr. Fitzgerald is the
only author now living whose stories
were revised by Charles Jickens;
when he wu in difficulties with his
plots he frequently went to Dickens,
who tlso helped him with most of bis
proofs and added to them "large
slices of his own long sentences."
Desert Gimt.
In 1889 a hunter in the northwest oi
New South Wales wounded a kangaroo. The animal went off through tbe
mulga and the salt bush at a pace too
fut for the hunter to follow and was
soon out of sight. The hunter wu e
bushmsn and did not despair. He
followed the blood trail, hopeful ol a
short search and a speedy bag. At
one point of the pursuit it may be
that the trail grew faint and necessitated a closer inspection. Anyway the
hunter stooped and picked up a pieci
of stone. This he examined. The
red spot was not on it; it wu in it,
lt was not blood that he saw; it was
opal. Such wu the beginning of the
White Cliffs opal held*.

The inhabitant* of Cruit, an island
in Donegal, have been sorely inconvenienced Istely by the collapse ol a
bridge. At a District Council meeting it was stated that tbere had been
a lootball match in the district, and
when the teams were crossing the
structure it caved in with a crash,
many of the passengers being immersed in the sea. Tbe people going
to mus on the following Sunday haa
to wade across up to their waists, and
after tlie service wade back again.
Such heroic conduct ought to get

Chancellor, Eldon, who was strongly
opposed to policy the speech contained with regard to the recognition of

Parisian Sage   Will Grow
More Hair
Parisian Sage will stop falling hair
in two weeks—cure dandruff in the
same time and stop scalp itch at once.
It makes the hair soft, silky and luxuriant. As a hair dressing Parisian
Sage is without a peer. It contains
nothing that can harm the hair—it is
not sticky, oily or greasy, and prevents as well as cures diseases of the
scalp.
Women and children by the thousand use it daily as a dressing and nn
home is complete without it. Money
back if it fails.
Druggists and stores everywhere
guarantee Parisian Sage and will refund your money if it fails. Ask H.

Hyomei
The Breatheablo Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational way to combat catarrh
is the Hyomei way, via., liy breathing.
Scientists for years have boon agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and nut destroy the tissues of
the membrane ut the same time, until the discovery of Hyomei (pronounced High-o ine.)
Hyomei is the most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through thc inhaler over the inflamed
and germ ridden membrane four or
five times a day, and in a few days the
germs will disappear.
A complete Hyomei outfit, including tho inhaler, costs CI.Oil, and extra
bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
50 cent. Obtainable from your druggist or postpaid from the R. T. Booth
Co., Ltd., Fort Erie, Ont. Hyomei
is guaranteed to cure asthma, croup,
