To date 5,000 men are engaged on the section* 320 miles west  of Edmonton, aud on the 245 miles  eastward from the Pacific, and a  great many more will be put bn  during the coming snjamer.  Tho manager states that 1912  will see tbe road open for traffic  through the mountains, and enough  is now known as to the distance  through the Pass, a distance of GO  miles, to justify Mr. Stewart's saying that there is room for twenty  sets of rails.  The most surprising part of his  statement, however, is to the effect  that the Mackenzio & Mann*sur-  vey fairly hugs the Grand Trunk  Pacific from Edmonton westward,  a distance of 350 miles. The two  lines will-be practically in sight of  each other for all that distance.  ���������-���������r'*--A-Cro6d-Hotel. '���������- -,-���������-  A.

Cast Down by the News of His  Second Cousin's Death.  MRS. BOWSER FAILS TO WEEP  Increased Gas Bill and a Sudden Meeting With the Butcher Cause the Living to Forget the Dead, and a Free  Fight Follows Sorrow.  By    M.    QUAD.  'Copyright,   1900.   by  Associated  Literary  Press.!  R. BOWSER didn't kick the  Kate opoii when bo cume up  to dinner tho other evening,  nor did he juin his key into  tlio door and twibt nnd jam and rattle  the knob. On tho contrary, ho opened  nnd shut tho gate tenderly, and his entrance of the house was almost as soft  ns a siiowllnlce. Mrs. Bowser came  forward with a puzzled look on her  face, and ho silently handed her a telegram lie had received in the afternoon.  It had been sent from a town in Indiana, and it read:  "Moses passed away at 9 o'clock this  morning."  "Anil wlio Is Moses?" was asked as  the telegram was returned.  "My second cousin."  "And ho is dead?"  "As you sco.   l'oor Moses!"  "Hut I didn't know you had a second  cousin named Moses. 1 am sure 1 never heard you speak of him since we  were married."  "I don't always speak of all my relatives. No husband ever does. I can't  say that I have written to Moses or  heard of him for tlie Inst twenty  years, but he has now departed this  life, and it has cast a shadow over  me."  "But wc are invited over to Greens'  tonight to a euchre party."  "We'll have to put it off. It would  be awful to sit (here and order up tho  tin nil) with poor Moses ready for the  grave."  Mr. Bowser led tho way down into  the diniflg room, but as he sat at table  BOWSE1S AND SECOND COCSIN MOSEAS BOYS.  he simply sipped his tea and leaned his  head on his hand and sighed.  "I don't exactly understand this  case." saiil Mrs. Bowser after a bit.  "You had a second cousin named  Moses?"  "And he's no more," was pathetically answered.  "You hadn't seen or heard of him  for twenty years?"  "And he must have laid it up against  mo when dying."  "Fudge! lie could have found your  address if lie had wanted to very badly.  I presume lie had forgotten all about  you. People don't generally shed tears  over the death of second cousins."  "But you���������you know how tender  hearted I am. I hope Moses didn't  think I was mad at him. Poor, poor  Moses!"  Bowser Advised to Eat His Dinner.  "You'd better eat your dinner, jnst  the same. Tlie Greens will surely expect us, and I wish you'd go. You  can't help Moses any by staying homo  nnd feeling bad."  "P.ut I've got to. It's my duty to  feel bad. Moses and I used to go in  swimming together, and he used to  show.me the scar on his leg where a  dog bit him. You can finish your dinner, nnd I'll go upstairs."  Mrs. Kowser saw that it -was useless  to say any more just then, but had  hopes that the fit would pass off within the hour. Sho was disappointed iu  this. She went up to find him feeling  nil broken up and his tears falling, and  he greeted her with:  "And Moses used to let me play on  his mouth organ!"  "Yes?"  "And he'd always give me his apple  cores."  "Noble Mopps!"  "Do you think Iip asked for mp when  he knew lhat he must die?"  "No. 1 don't. lie had more important things on his mind."  "But we used lo slide down hay-  Btacks together."  "Yes, and what of it? Mr. Bowser,  you are taking on worse than a little  girl over the death of her dolly. Moses  may have been a second cousin, but  be was n stranger to you. after all. I  shouldn't  have thought of telegraDb-  mg In in It it was your Ceain."  "But he'd have shed tears over mi������  If ymi hud. Moses had awfully ten-  der feelings, tie used to weep when  a goose died."  "Well, haven't we dlscu.--.scd Moses  Vnough? lie won't know that yon  ���������iiv weeping over hlin."  "But he will, Mrs. Bowaer���������he will  ".loses has ili.ate-i upward awl Is looU-  ing down on me this very _minute. It  will please him to think I am feeling  bad."  Mrs. Bowser toi-k up a bonk and began to reud, aud Mr. Bowser sat and  sighed for five minute:-.   Then he said:  "Moses froze his nose one winter."  No reply.  "And lie broke through the ice once."  No reply.  "And one time he and I stole two  turkey eggs."  No reply.  "Mrs. Bowser. I'd like to go over to  Greens' with you. but Moses is no  moi-o. I might get to thinking of it as  1 was playing cards and break right  down and cry like a child."  "Oh. I have given up going. We  have got to stay home and talk about  Moses. Why did you wait until ho  was dead before ever mentioning his.  name?"  ������������������I diinnn, nnd Unit's what makes me  feci so had. I ought to havo been  talking about him all the time. Do you  think ho forgave me before he drew  ills last breath?"  A Walk Around the Block Suggested.  "1   think you'd  bettor take a, walk  around   the  block and  try  to  forgot  Moses."  Kor tlio next four or five minutes Mr.  Bowser had the advi.-e under consideration and was silent. Then he began shaking his head in a mournful  way and said:  "I'd go out for a walk, but suppose I  commenced  crying on  the street.    A  policeman might come along, and when  I   told  him that  Moses  was dead  he  might haul off und  hit me one.    No;  I'lf stay right here and feel ns bad as  I can.   There is no one here to see my  t"ars but you. aud you understand me."  "What did this Moses do for a living?"   asked   Mrs.   Bowser   after  another long silence.  "Nothing.'1 guess."  "But  wasn't  he a  fanner or something?"  -  "I guess uot. He was so good thnt  I guess he just silt around and thought  of angels. -lie found a grasshopper  once with the consumption, and ho  took him home aud cured Jiim. That's  the kind or a boy Moses was."  "I see. but 1*11 go upstairs for awhile  and give you time to get over this.   I  hope you haven't got any more second  cousins."  "I've got ten more."  "Then give mo a list of their names,  and  I'll  write them  to try to outlive  you."  Gas Bill and ths Butcher End All.  She passed upstairs, and after a few-  more sighs Mr. Bowser began pacing  the room.   As lie passed the fireplace  he noticed the gas bill for the month  on tho mantel.

Ambassador James Bryce Knew Evolutionist Well.  , Among*the famous men whose natal  /ear was 1809, and  tvhose centenaries  have   occasioned  a   pouring   forth   of  anecdote and reminiscence, Mr. James  Bryce notes "four men likely to be  ' remembered among the English-speak-  ing races as long as English is spoken���������two'statesmen,  Abraham Lincoln  and William E. .Gladstone; one poet.  Aired Tennyson; ana one man ot science,   Charles  Dai win."   The  British  ambassador goes on to observe, in his  article on' Darwin in Harper's Magazine, that .while  "the last named  of  these   was   the   one   whoae   influence  spread most widely over the whole of  civilized mankind during his lifetime,  and continues  to  be J'eit  with undiminished force to day,"   he was "the  one among those four who was least  known * personally."     Although    his  books and his theories were being discussed all over the world, his personality remained  unfamiliar even to his  own   countrymen.    His  life   was,uneventful, or, Ha Mr: Brye'e puts it, it  had in it only one event, his voyage  on the  exploring ship  lioagie. ��������� Pursuing the conventional classical education at Shrewsbury, his home town,  and   later   at   Euinbuigh   and   Cambridge,   intending   to .take  orders   in  the Church of England;' he began-to  manifest an interest in birds and insects,   and   became   known   to   Prof,  lienslow,   an   accomplished   botanist  and geologist, and otner scientific men  in Cambridge.   To continue from.Mr.  Brjce'a nairative-  He hail not quite dropped the notion of taking oidurs when Prof. Hen-  slow told linn that Capt. F'ltzroy,  ,who was to command the Beagle on  the voyage already relerred to, was  looking out for a naturalist to accompany the ex-peJition. Hensow remembered his young friend, then twenty-  two years ol age. Darwin jumped at  the proposal. Captain Fitzroy accepted him, though at hist deterred by the  shape of Darwin's none, which- he  thought indicated a want of foice ot  character!   '  The voyage   lasted   from   1331 "till  183C.   It was Darwin's education, and  furnished the   basis   for   his famous  theoiy.    The  book  in  which   he   recorded   his  observations,   and   Avhich  established his reputation as a scientific   student, -is   a   delightful   booK,  which  any  one,   however  scanty his  knowledge of science, may read with  ���������pleasure oven to-day, when we know  so much more about the places and  the subjects of which it treats.   Never  did five years yield a ricner harvest  to any man than those years to Darwin and to the world.   But while they  gave   knowledge   and   brought   fame,  they took away health.   He had been-  a strong man when he embarked. But  the almost constant seasickness from  which he suffered "when the little vessel was tossing on the waves so told  upon him   that when   he landed   his  nervous    system    was    permanently  weakened, and he was never thereafter  the same man physically, never capable of such continuous hard mental  work.   In lrf3l������ he married Miss Wedgwood,   and- in   IS42,   being   in  fairly  easy  circumstances,   he   bought   tlie  small estate of Down; nearly twenty  miles from London, and settled himself there for the rest of his life, giving to his scientific observations and  reflections all the time that his physi-  cal   weakness   permitted.       He   was  tended with the most loving care by  his wife and helped in his investigations by his sons, some of whom have  themselves achieved  high  distinction  in different branches of science.  It was there, at Down, that I saw  hnn not long before his death.  He was nearly six foet high, but did  not look his height, having in later  years contracted a slight stoop. Every  one has seen engravings ot photographs of him. They give a very good  idea ot his face, for its features were  well marked; and in elderly men the  expression seems-'to become a part  of the features.

For three years she was a victim of this trouble and lound no relief  till she began using Dr. Williams'  Pink .Pills. She says;���������"For three  years' 1 was a sufferer from inflammatory" rheumatism... -During that time 1  consulted .and was .treated by some  of the best doctors in our city, but I  found no relief in their treatment. I  began to despair of ever being well  again, when one day a friend advised  me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I  procured three boxes and by the time  those were used there was enough  improvement in' my' condition to encourage i me to continue their use.  Three more boxes completely cured  me and to-day I am as well as ever I  was. I always keep.a supply of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills in the house and  would recommend all who suffer as  I did to give them a trial."  It was the new blood that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually made that  restored Miss Mercier to health and  strength. Thero is no medicine to  equal them in making new blood and  in this way they cure anaemia, rheumatism, heart palpitation, indigestion, neuralgia, St. 'Vitus dance and  many other troubles.

For many years Mr. Charles Pel-  ham Villiers was tlie "Fatiier," in  -view of over half a century's representation of Wolverhampton. Next  came Mr. C. Ii. M..Talbot, who was  first elected for ' Glamorganshire in  1832. The writer often saw this fine  old gentleman, .who kept his interest  ni poiilics to the end of his long life.  Among those who have been "Father" of the House of Commons in,, recent years are Sir Michael 'Hicks-  Beach (now Viscount St. AldwynJ,  who was first elected a member in  lo(H, ior East Gloucestershire, and  continued to represent that constituency until .his elevation to thc peerage in ISJOU���������a period of forty-two  years.  Sir Henry Campbell-Bahnerman became "Father" of the House simultaneously with becoming Premier ��������� a  unique double dibtinction.  Prior to him in long record must be  mentioned Mr. W. W. Beach, who was  lirst elected M.P. for North Hants  in 1837. Another "Father" was the  Right Hon. G. II. Finch, who sat for  Rutlandshire for forty years.  Theie are so many veterans retiring  from Parliament that it will not be  easy to settle who can be called tlie  "Father" of the new House.. , '-  Tlie youngest member in ago���������not  the   years   of  M.P.ship���������is   mdled  Arrested, and Consumption Cured  Mr. G.

C.     ���������  When the pink was ou the boom  in Greenwood there were 22 hotels  licensed to sell liquor. This number has gradually decreased until  now but 12 places have a legal  right to retail booze in this city.  Through all the hard times it has  been a mystery how tlie 12 hotels  managed to keep open without a  collision with the sheriff. The  owners and tenants have held on  with the hope that some day they  would all do a profitable business  and be rewarded for the long wait.  It looks as though this day would  never come for seven of them. In  January the council raised the price  of licenses, but with bulldog tenacity every landlord held on and  came through with the price. Now  the license commissioners announce  that after July only five hotel  liquor licences will be granted iu  this city, and it is stated that the  council trill raise the license bill  to ������1,000 a year. Just as increased  prosperity is in sight this will mean  material ruin to several people who  have stood the brunt of adversity  in the belief that their licenses  would ,never bo cancelled, except  by fire or. of their own free will.  With' this blind faith they have  held on only at this late day to  bump into a granitic formation that  makes them sit up and gasp for  oxygen. Without compensation it  savors of injustice to turn seven  into the street in order that five  mat' creep along with an increasing  burden upon their backs. Better  throw the bunch into the ��������� same  stream and let the strong swim  tsbore.  From a moral standpoint, the  reduction in the number of licenses  will make little, difference. There  will be less irrigating in barrooms,  but more in houses, clubs, cabins  and bootlegs. Greenwood at present is one of, the most orderly  towns in the world. A policeman  has never been killed in the city;  the greatest danger to the police  force being from fatty degeneration of the muscles owing to the  lack of exercise. We now have,  hotels suited to a cosmopolitan  population. Some cater to the  Swedes, others to the Italians,  French, Americans, Canadians,  and at least one looks after the  Irish. In consequence harmony  reigns in the camp. Herd all  classes together and we may have  to augment the constabulery.  The reduction of the licenses  from 12 to seven means a monetary  loss to all the business men of the  cit}-, including the electric light  company and municipal corporation. It means less labor for the  people, less business; for the merchants, and less revenue for the  city. Unless business improves  greatly, it will not, owing to the  high licence, improve the condition of the five hotels that will  legally handle the firewater. No  matter what they do the license  commissioners are bound to tyork  a hardship upon.many people. If  the members of the board and the  city council were politic they would  leave the hotel problem alone and  and alow it to work out its own  salvat/on or damnation. If they  are bound to adopt radical measures  then they should give a year's  notice of their intentions.  The price of diamonds has advanced 10 per cent, but this fact  does not disturb our equanimity in  the slightest.  A iie.v in Virginia has laid 291  oggs in a little over eleven months.

In Alberni a man was fined $25  because he had liquor in his possession while on an Indian reservation. The report does not say  whether he had it inside or outside.  cut any figure in the community  in which he does business must  first learn the value, of publicity.  Printers' ink has put many men  on the road to success and has also  put men on the road to the penitentiary." Judicious advertising is  the one sure way of securing business.  A preacher in Rossland recently  had five pretty girls take-up the  collection. The innovation was a  huge success. Not a man in the  church had the nerve to put a button or a poker chip upon the plates.  The restaurant in the Windsor  hotel never closes.  In Canada a( Chinaman can become a British subject, but this  does not permit him to vote or  take up land, The only advantage  to a Chink in being a British subject is that he can go to China and  return without again paying the  8500 tax.

Sniil.10cents  In Ontario the government purposes to have a central provincial  board which will administer the  liquor license system for the entire  province. Tho Hamilton Herald  comments upon it as follows :  " This chango would of course  necessitate   the   abolition   of   the  local   boards  of   license   commissioners.    It may look like an improvement; but it is by no means  certain that the change would do  away with the chief defect of the  present system���������the close association of party politics with the ad-  ministratnn   of   the license   law.  At present the law is administered  by local partiz'ins with  an  eye to  party   advantage.     Is   it   certain  that tho administration of tho law  would be lens affected by party considerations if it were entrusted, to  a provincial boaid made up of par-  tisane?

John Houston wag eight days  dead before the,news reached Fort  George. An Indian brought the  first report, but this was doubted  until Harold^-Price arrived and  showed a photo of the hearse as it  stood outside the barn at the 150  Mile House. When the' news was  confirmed the little bell of the mission church was tolled and the  only flig within 100 miles was  half-masted. W. J. McKay, who  has been getting out The Tribune  since John took his last journey,  says: "~  " His death may be attributed  wholly to a desire to perform three  men's work under conditions that  would stagger a young man.  Cooped up in an office 10 x 12, set-  teng nonpareil by lamp light, .with  the -thermometer down to 40, insufficient nourishment, and, finally,  insomnia, shattered his frame and  led to his sending to the coast for  help. It was-too late, however,  the strings were snapping, and the  inhospitable trail from here to  Quesnel, with the lack of sleeping  houses, and four nights camped on  snow, completed the sad task initiated in the tent-covered office of  his own building."  Chinks Gone Home.  The last batch of Chinese left  Johannesburg-for their native land  at the beginning of the month, the  repatriation having taken four  years to complete. The largest  number of Chinese in the Transvaal at any one time was 53,856.  The number of natives employed  in the gold mines of the Witwaters-  rand in* September last was 156,-  0G5. It was feared the profits  would decrease after the repatriation, but this is not the case, as  working costs are 22 cents a ton  less than in 1908, and the output  of gold has increased. Last year  the Transvaal mines turned out  $154,625,000 worth of gold, or 34  per cent, of the world's output.  Kettle Valley Line.  R. N. Jones and E. A.
