A. Russell in  'the chair.  A letter from James Stevens of  Toronto was read, asking for the  chances of a job as blacksmith in  Greenwood. Tho bucretary , was  instructed to give him the desired  information.  A letter from the .Canadian  Manufacturers' association was  read re uuifo'nm bills' of lading.  Messrs. Hunter, Russell and Mc-  Liiine were appointed to look into  the matter.  The Montreal Star wanted advertising, but there was nothing  doing.  The local freight mileage rate  was received from the C. P. R. and  filed.  A resolution was  read ��������� from the  Guelph Board of Trade, protesting  against   railroad*   raising   freight  and  cartage rates  without giving  shippers proper notice  ami  asking  Greenwood to endorse  it.    It was  endorsed   and   the   secretary   instructed to write the Board of Railway Commissioners  to that effect.  Messrs. Duncan Ross, D. C. McRae. J. Cameron, E. Parry, II.  B.  Shaeffer, H.   Simmons and  J. D.  Spence   were   the   new   members  elected.  The Publicity committee made  a report re th������ cost of getting out  10,000 pamphlets for the purpose  of advertising Greenwood. The  committee suggested that the  pamphlet deal more with "the timber and agricultural resources of  the district than mining. Fruit  farming is popular at present and  people want to know all about it.  It was decided to ask the city  council for a grant towards the expense of issuing the advertising  literature, provided all the funds  were not obtainablo'otherwise.  Three small accounts* were presented and ordered to be paid.  There was considerable discussion  about  the  building  of  the V.. V.  &��������� E.   into' Greenwood  from   Mid  way.      After   Duncan    iMc[ntosh  strted that he had read  the law on  the matter and discovered, that the  Great Northern  did   not' have to  reach   hero   uneil   1010,   Duncan  Ross, M. P., rose up and remarked  that the memorial sent from Greenwood last fall was rea I by , Laurie r  who, after consultation with Rons,,  decided to write Jim   Hill  in reference to building,from Midway lo  Greenwood.    Hill reported that he  would give the matter his persoiml  attention, and   went to New York  to see the leading people of the  local shelters iu  reference to how  much business the "road   would receive if it; was  built -into Greenwood at once.    At ..this juncture  the   mines   and   smelters around  Greenwood shut down and stopped  negotiations.     Mr.   Ross thought  that it was not  wiso to press the  matter until  this camp ngain be-  camo   active   and  had 'something  that would induce another railroad  to como in.    It was in the power  of tho government to, refuse  further concessions to the  V., V. &  E.   until  tho   road   was built   to  Greenwood, but he was afraid that  tho Similkameen might bo injured  if wo were harsh  with  (ho Grent  Northern   at   this particular   depressed   period  of our municipal  existence     " * "  Several detectives have been in  the city this week and something  may drop in a few days.

Chisholm and are doing a  tine business. Mr. Chisholm is  now landlord of the Kootenay in  Rossland.  Emil nolmberg, formerly a  mucker boss, has a strange mania.  He will not eat and the authorities should do something with him.  Few people in this camp have a  mania for not drinking.  The attorney-general has ordered  a fin ther investigation in the case  of Andrea Yonson, who died here  some time ago from what the jury  said was acute alcoholic poisoning.  The body will be exhumed antl an  autopsy pettoruied.  T. A. Lo've has bought the Pioneer from W. B. Wilcox. Being  a practical printer, he should make  fi fortune in Phoenix. Mr. Wilcox will rest a while and then follow the crowd along the coast.  Beach made a great deal of money  in Phoenix aud always got out a  good paper. He was diplomatic  enough never to take anybody's  side, except U'illeox's. In consequence he never had to keep a  fighting editor'and leaves the camp  wjtli a bag of money, a whole skin  aiid the best wishes of nearly everybody.  21 .

But all! I chuckled  to myself, before many hours were  over I should bo even with liim,' anil  then wc would sco what would happen. A hatred more intense, more bit-  tor, than I could ever have believed  one man could entertain for another,  filled my breast. Under Its influence  all my scruples vanished, and I wanted nothing but to cry quits with my  enemy.  For more than half an hour I hurried along,' scarcely heeding where I  went, thinking only of my hatred, asd  gloating over the hideous revenge I  was about to take. That I was doing  all this under Nikola's hypnotic influence I now feel certain; but at the  time I seemed to be acting on my own  initiative, and Nikola to be only playing the part of the dens ox machina.  At last I begun to weary of my walk,  so, hailing a hansom, I directed the  driver to convey mo back to my hotel.  As I passed through the Hall the clock  over the bll Hard-room door struck six,  and on hearing it T became aware that  In one other particular I had fulfilled  Nikola's orders. After dinner I went-  Into the smoking-room, and, seating  myself in an easy chair before the  fire, lit a cigar. Before I had half  smoked it I was fast asleep, dreaming  that I was once more in Australia and  tossing on a bed of sickness in the  Mail Change at Markapurlie. A more  vivid dream it would bo impossible to  imagine. I saw myself, pale and haggard, lying upon tho bed, unconscious  of what was passing around me. I saw  Bartrand and Gibbs standing looking  fifter you until I can communicate with i down at me. Then the former came  (Continued)  as r-iTOKed into Ids face all my  strength seemed to go from me. Without a second's hesitation I sat down  as he commanded mo, aud stared in a  stupid, dazed fashion at the floor. I  no longer had any will of my own. Of  course I can see now that he had  hypnotized me! but his methods must  have been more deadly than I have  ever seen exercised before, for he did  not insist upon my looking into his  eyes for any length of time, nor did  he mako any passes before my face as  I had seen professional mesmerists do.  He simply glanced at me���������perhaps a  little more fixedly than usual���������and all  my will was immediately taken from  me. "When I was calm he spoke again.  "You are better now," he said, "so  we can talk. You must pay particular  attention to what I am going to say,  and what 1 toll you to do you will do  to the letter. To begin with, you will  now go back to your hotel, and, as  soon as you reach it, go to bed. You  will sleep without waking till four  o'clock this afternoon; then you wiU  dress and go for a walk. During that  walk you will think of the man who  has wronged you, and the more you  think of him the fiercer your hatred  for him will become. At six o'clock  you will return to your hotel and dine,  going to sleep again in the smoking-  room till ten. When the clock has  struck you will wake, take a hansom,  Rnd drive to 23, Groat Guntcr Street,  Soho. Arriving at the house, you will  ask for Levi Solomon, to whom you  will be at once conducted. He will look  you again. That is your program  for the day. I order you not to fail in  any single particular of it. Now you  had better be off. It is nearly six  o'clock."  I rose from my seat and followed  him out into the passage like a dog;  thence we made our way' into the yard.  To my surprise a cab was standing  waiting for-us, the lamps glaring like  fierce eyes into' the dark archway  which led into the street.  "Get in," said Nikola, opening the  apron. "My man will drive you to your  hotel. On no account give him a gratuity, for I do not countenance it, and  he knows my principle.   Good night."  I obeyed him mechanically, still  without emotion, and when I was seated the cab drove out into the street.  Throughout the journey back to the  hotel I sat in the corner trying to  think, and not succeeding. I was only  conscious that, whatever happened, I  must obey Nikola in all he had told  me to do. Nothing else seemed of any  Importance.  On approaching my residence, I  wondered how I should obtain admittance; but ,as it turned out, that proved an easy matter, for when I arrived the servants were already up and  about, and the front door stood open,  Disregaiding the stare of astonishment  with which I was greeted, I went upstairs to my room, and m less than  ten minutes was in b*d and fast  asleep.  Strangely enough, considering the  ^xcitenlent of the previous cwenty-four  hours, my sleep ?/us dreamless. It  seemed only a ih\* minutes from the  time I closed my >-������yes till I was awake  again, yet the Lands of my watch had  stood at half-pact six- a.m. when I went  to bed, and when I opened my eyes  again they chronicled four o'clock  exactly. So far I had fulfilled Nikola's  Instructions to -the. Jetter. .---Without,  hesitation I rose from my bed, dress*ed  myself carefully, and, when I was ready  (iori"^ my overcoat nnd went out for  a walk.  The evening was bitterly cold, and  heavy snow was falling. To keep myself warm I hurried along, and as I  went I found my thoughts reverting  continually to_Bartrand. I remembered  my life at  closer, and bent over mc. Next moment he had taken a paper from the  pocket ofL.my shirt, and carried it with  him into the" adjoining bar. A few  minutes later he returned with it and  replaced it in the pocket. As he did  so he turned to the landlord, who  stood watching him from the doorway,  and said���������"You're sure he's delirious,  that he's not shamming?"  "Shamming? Poor beggar," answered Gibbs, who after all was not such  a bad fellow at heart. "Take a good  look at him and see for yourself. I  hope I may never be as near gone  as "he is now."  "So much the bettor," said Bartrand  with a sneer, as he stepped away from  the bed. "We'll save him tho trouble  of making us his legatees."  "You don't mean to steal the poor  beggar's secret, surely?" replied  Gibbs. "I wouldn't have- told you if I'd  thought that."  "More fool you then," said Bartrand.  "Of course I'm not going to steal it,  only to borrow it. Such chances don't  come-twice in a lifetime. But are you  sure of your facts? Are you certain  the old fellow said there was gold  enough there to make both of them  millionaires half-a-dozen times over?"  "As certain as I'm sitting here," answered Gibbs.  "Very good; then I'm off to-night  for the Boolga Ranges. In ten days  I'll have the matter settled, and by the  time that dog there gets on to his feet  again we'll both be on the high road  to fortune."      ���������  "And I'm only to have a quarter of  what you get? It's not fair, Bartrand."  Bartrar#l stepped up to him with  that nasty, bullying look on his face  that I knew so well of old.  "Look here, my friend," he said,  "You know Richard Bartrand, don't  you? And you also know what I can  tell about you. I offer you a fourth of  the mine fov your information, but I  don't give it to you for the reason that  I'm.afraid of you, for I'm not. Remember I know enough ot your doings in  this grog shanty to hang you a dozen..  f.imes over ;*and, by the Lord Harry, if  ou make yourself a nuisance to me  '11 put those on your track who'll set  you swinging.

How much  would I not have given.to know if it  wns only jfaairntion, or wherher I had  been permitted to see a representation  of what had really happened? This  question, however, 1 could not of  course answer.  On.roachins the Strund I hailed a  hansom and bade the driver convey  me with all speed to 23, Great Gunter  Street, Soho.  "Twenty-three, Great Gunter  Street?" repeated tho man, staring at  mc in surprise. "You don't surely mean  that, sir?"  "T do," I answered. "If you don't  like the job 1 can easily find another  man." ,  "Oh, I'll take you there, never fear,  sir," replied the man; "but I didn't  know perhaps wherher you was aware  what sort of a crib it is. It's not the  shop gentlemen goes to' as u general  rule at night time, except maybe  they're after a dog as has been stole,  or tho like."  "So it's that sort of place is it?" 1  answered.'"Well, I don't know that it  matters. I'm able to take care of myself."  As I said this I got into the vehicle,  and in half a minute wc wore driving  down the Strand in the direction of  Soho. In something under a quarter' of  an hour we had left Leicester Square  behind us, crcjsed Shaftesbury Avenue, and turned into Great Guntcr  Street. It proved to be exactly what  the driver had insinuated, neither a  respectable nor a savoury neighborhood; and when I siw it and its inhabitants I ceased to wonder at his  hesitation. When he had proceeded  half-way down tho street 'he pulled  his horse up before tho entrance to  what looked like a dark alley leading  into a court. Itoalizlng that this must  bo my destination I opened the apron  and sprang out.-  "Number 23 is somewhere s hereabouts sir," said tlr������ driver, who seemed to derive a certain amount of satisfaction from his ignorance of the locality. "I don't doubt but what one of  these boys will be able to tell you exactly."  I paid him his fare and sixpence  over for his civility, and then turned  to question a filthy little gutter urchin, who, with bare t'������et and chattering teeth, was standing beside me.  "Where is 23, my lad?" I inquired.  "Can you take me to it?"  "Twenty-three?" said tho boy.  "That's where Crooked Billy lives, sir.  You come along with me and I'll show  you the way."  "Go ahead then," I answered, and  the boy thereupon bolted into the darkness of the alley before. which  we had- been standing. I followed  him as quickly as I could, but  it -was a matter of some difficulty, for the court was as black  as the Pit of Tophet, and seemed to  twist and turn in every conceivable  direction. A more unprepossessing  place it would have been difficult to  find. Half-way down I heard the boy-  cry out "Hold up, mother!" and before  I could stop I found myself in collision with a woman who, besides being  unsteady on her leers, reeked abominably of gin. Disengaging myself, to  the accompaniment of her curses, I  sped after my leader, and a moment  later emerged into the open court itself. The snow had ceased, and the  three-quarter moon, sailing along  through swift"flying"clouds, 'showed-  me the surrounding houses. In one or  two windows, lights were burning, revealing sights which almost made my  flesh creep with loathing. In one I  couW. see a woman sewing as if for  her very life by the light of a solitary candle stuck in a bottle, while  two little children lay asleep, half-  clad., on a heap of straw, and rags in  the corner. On my right I had a.  glimpse" of another room/ where the  dead body of a man was stretched  upon a mattress on the floor, with-two  old hags seated at a table beside it,  drinking gin from a black bottle, turn  and turn about. Tho' wind whistled  mournfully among tho roof tops; the  snow had been trodden into a disgusting slush every-vhere, save close  against the walls, wf.ere it still showed white as silver; while the reflection  of the moon gleamed in the Icy puddi������a  golden as a spade guinea.

Tbe humorists always associate the  African with tbe watermelon, assuming that the taste of the colored man  for his favorite dainty .arises from his  life In tbe southern states, where the  melon vine grows like a weed.  As a fact, however, the African taste  for the watermelon is hereditary. The  vine is a native" of Africa, where It is  found wild in the-great central plains  of the continent, arid has, also been  cultivated for many ages.  In Egypt the melons grown along the  Nile rival those of southeastern Missouri.  The melons mentioned by the Israelites as being among the good things  they- had in Egypt were undoubtedly  watermelons, for in the wall.'paintings  about the time of the exodus the melon  vinejs represented, and in one case a  long procession of slaves Is,depicted,  each bearing on bis shoulder a huge  dark green watermelon.  Botanists say that varieties of the  melon are found in southern Asia, and  some even claim that tho plant grows  wild in central and South Africa, but  Africa is no doubt the original home  of the melon, and' in his preference  over every other kind of vegetable, or  fruit the  African   merely  displays  a  which is worthless.

THE LABOREF "AND HIS HIRE.  old Ben's arrival at the station came  back to me as distinctly as if it had  peen. but yesterday, and with Its coming the manager's brutality roused me  Afresh. I thought of the fir" '.we had  had, and then of the long weeks of  nursing at the wretched Mail Change  on the plains. In my mind's eye I  seemed to see poor old Ben sitting up  In bed and telling me his secret, and  when I was once more convalescent,  went over, day by day, my journey to  the Boolga Ranges, and dreamt again  the dreams of wealth that had occupied my brain then, only to find myself robbed of my fortune at the end.  Now the man who had stolen my  chance in life was one of the richest  men in England. He had In his possession all that is popularly supposed  to make life worth the living, and  while he entertained royalty, bought  race-horses and yachts, and enjoyed  every advantage in life at my expense,  left me to get along as best I might. 1  might die of starvation in the gutter  for all he would care. At that moment  I was passing a newsagent's stall. On  ��������� a board before the door, setting forth  the contents of an evening newspaper,  was a line that brought me up all  standing with surprise, as the sailors  say. "Bartrand's Generosity.���������A Gift to  tho People," It ran. I went inside,  bought a copy of the paper, aud stood  In the light of the doorway to read  the paragraph. It was as follows:���������  "Mr. Richard Bartrand, the well-  known Australian millionaire, has, so  we are informed, written to the London County Council offering to make  a free gift to the city of that large  area of ground recently occupied by  Montgomery Ho.use, of which ho has  lately become the possessor. Tho donor  makes but one stipulation, and that is  that It shall be converted into public  gardens, and shall be known In tho  future as Bartrand Park. As the  ground In question was purchased at  auction by tho millionaire last week  for the large sum of fifty thousand  pounds, the generosity of this gift cannot be over-estimated."  To the surprise of the newsagent 1  crushed th*> paper r.-j throw It on the  ground, and rushed from the shop In  a blind rage. What right had ho to  pose as a public benofactor, who was  only a swindler and a robber? What  right had he to make gifts of fifty  thousand Dojirrts to the deodIo. .when I  you'll.never be able to open it again."  Gibbs leaned against the door with  a face like lead. It was evident th*f  howavw ������m������U he hated Bartrand he  feared him a good deal more. A prettier pair of rogues it would have been  difficult to find in a long day's march.  "You needn't be afraid, Mr. Bartrand," he said at last, but this time in  no certain voice. "I'll not split on you  as long as you treat me fairly. You've  been a good friend to me in the past  and I know you mean me well though  you speak so plain."  "I know the sort of man with whom  I have to deal, you see," returned  Bartrand with another nasty sneer.  "Now I must get my horse and be off.  I've a lot to do if I want to get away  tonight."  He went out into the verandah and  unhitched his reins from the nails on  which they were hanging.  "Let me have word directly that carrion in there comes to himself again,"  he said, as he got into the saddle.  "And be sure you never breathe a word  to nlm that I've.been over. I'll let you  know,all that goes on as soon as  we've got our claim fixed up. In the  meantime, mum's the word. Goodbye."  Gibbs bade him good-bye, and when  ho had watched him canter off across  the plain returned to the room where  May. Evidently his conscience was reproving him, for he stood by my bed  for some minutes looking down at me  in silence, men he heaved a little sigh  and said under his breath, "You miserable beggar, how little you know what  Is happening, but I'm bothered if I  don't think after all that you're a  dashed sight happier than I am. I'm  beginning to wish I'd not given you  away to that devil. Tho remembrance  of It will haunt me all my life long."  I woke up with his last speech ringing in my ears, and for a moment  could scarcely believe my own eyes.  I had imagined myself back In the  bush, and to wake up In the smoking  room of a London hotel was a surprise for which I was not prepared.  The clock over tho door waa just  striking eleven as I rose to my feet  and went out Into the hall. Taking my  coat down from a peg I put it on, and  then, donning my hat and turning up  my collar, went out Into the street.  Snow was htlll falllii'f. and th������ n'i?lv  was blttorly colJ.

HORNET  SENTINELS.  it  There is only one way to cure indigestion and that is to 'give your  system so much good, red blood that  the stomach will have strength enough to do its natural work in a  healthy vigorous way. Many dyspeptics dose the stomach with tablets, syrups and other things alleged  to assist in digesting food, but these  things merely give temporary relief���������  they never cure indigestion���������and the  ^rouble grows worse and worse, until the poor dyspeptic is gradually  starving. In .a case of indigestion a  lia'f dozen boxes of ��������� Dr. Williams'  Pink P;lls are worth all the mixtures and so-called pre-digested foods  in the country. These pills cure indigestion because they strengthen and  tone the stomach, thus nabling it to  do the work nature intends it should  do.  _ ,  .  Mr. Paul YJharbonneau, St. Jerome,  Que., says: "For months I suffered  tortures from indigestion. After every  meal the misery was intense; so that  [ finally ate most sparingly. I tried  several so-calkl indigestion cures, but  they d'd me no good. My general  hea'th began to run down. I suffered  from headaches and dizziness and  pains about the heart. Often after  the lightest meal I would be afflicted  with a smothering sensation. Finally  my mother induced me to try Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. Under the use  of this medicine the trouble began to  disappear, and in less than a couple  of months I had completely recovered my health and can now enjoy a  heartv meal as well as any one."  Tt is because they make new, rich  blood that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  always cure indigest'on, anaemia,  rheumatism, heart palpitation, neuralgia, sciatica, St. Vitus dance, and the  headaches, backaches and other indescribable ills of girlhood and womanhood.

Is a hornets' nest guarded by sentinels, after the manner of aut hills?

There is only one way to cure deaf-  ..   ness,  and that is  by  constitutional  remedies. - Deafness is caused by an  inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube.    When  this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearingrand  when it is entirely -closed. Deafness  is the result, and unless the inflam-  mat'on can be taken out and this tube  restored  to its    normal    condition,  hearing  will   be  destroyed    forever;  nine cases out of ten are caused by  , Catarrh, which is nothing but an in-  -,    flamed condition of the mucous sur-  l faces.

As they go on day after day  the worried minds seem to twist the.  nerves until they nre tense and .strain-'  ed. like the spring of a clock that is  'cept tightly  wound up.    The tension  <uows in the face, which grows sharp  and thin; in-the voice, which becomes  luerulous and  bad tempered, and in  the  manners,   which, become hurried,  .ibrupt and disconcerting. Women who  have allowed themselves to sink into  such a condition usually complain that  they have no time to rest.  As a matter  of fact, they have lost the power of  resting   and   simply   must "be   doing  ���������something.   They seem to be afflicted  with the disease of perpetual motion,  and if they could only  realize it are  rapidly wasting their nervous strength  and  preparing for a   physical   breakdown.   This is plain speaking, but only  nlain speakiug will make some women  stop their suicidal folly and take themselves well In hnnd.   They may think  that they have no time to rest, but the  housework,    the    cooking,    washing,  cleaning,   ironing,   mending,   must "be  done day by day or else their world  will come to an end.    But there is no  housework under the sun that cannot  -be rearranged in such a way that a  weary ..and worn woman may lie down  twenty minutes and rest at some time  during the day.   And if she cannot see  her way to rearranging her work then  she nyist let some of it go.   There-are  uo two questions about It.   We cannot  Juggle  with our  health,   we women.  Either the work must go or we must.  And there Is no work of ours .that another woman cannot step in and do  quite  ns   well���������perhaps   better.    This  sounds bard, but it is true.

He states the  facts as follows: "The disease started in the back of my hands in the  form of small sore3 and . eruptions.  These were very irritating and when  rubbed and scratched turned into  very painful sores. I tried waters,  lot-'ons and salves, but the disease  contJnued to spread and so I consulted a doctor. He treated me for a  time, but still the disease spread and  I got no relief. Then to my alarm  the eczema spread to several of the  children. The pain and irritation in  all our cases was very great, and we  were very much disheartened as all we  tn'ed proved unavailing. "Zam-Buk  was recommended and I obtained a.  supply. I tried it first on a small  patch of the eczema and this showed  so'much.improvement that I was convinced Zam-Buk would do good if  persevered with, and therefore obtained a supply. Each application greatly le'ieved the itching,-pain and soreness, and it was no* loiig before the  eruptions and sores diied up-and disappeared. In a few weeks from commencing with Zam-Buk every spot  was removed."  "The children who had also taken  this disease were treated in the same  way and have each been cured. Unlike all other preparations used. Zam-  Buk seemed to search to the roots of  the evil and it was really surprising  how quickly the sores were healed.  In my case and that of my children  the cure was most effectual and permanent as it is now some months since  we were cured, and there has been no  sign of any eruptions or sores re-  tunvng."

"What have you,been-up to?" demanded the policeman.      "  Thought the boy, "I'm caught,'! but  he said, /'Oh, sir, there's a disturbance  at that church,'and they have sent-tne  to fetch a policeman."     ,  "Very good," said the officer. "I'll  step in and see about It."  So he opened the door at the west  end of the.church and, taking off his  helmet! entered.  Tbe moment the aged usher saw him  he beckoned to him and motioned him  to a scut next an old gentleman.  Immediately he was seated he touch-  cd (he old gentleman and said, "Come  quiet."  The old gentleman replied, "What do  you mean?"  ,, Officer���������You know what I mean, and  I don't want no chat. Come quiet or I  shall have to take yer by force.

"To be fair," said a noted dramatic  critic, "is sometimes hard and cruel,  and sometimes it is rash. You know  there are reprisals. The unswerving  fair critic often takes up his pen with  the shrug of Omar, the old Persian  poet.  "You. have heard of ^Omar's shrug?  No? Weil, it was eloquent. The shah  once had sent for the old poet  .."'Omar,'"he* said, *I have written  some verses. Listen, and I will read  them to you.'  "And he read the verses and in the  ensuing silence looked at Omar anxiously.   'Well?' he said.  " 'Heaven born,' said Omar gently,  'each to his own calling. Scepter in  hand, you are most wise, just and  powerful, but pen in hand'��������� Omar  shook his head and chuckled. 'Heaven  born,' said be, 'such verses would disgrace a uine-year-old schoolboy.'  "His eyes flashing with wrath, the  shah shouted to his guards:  "To the stables with this old fool,  and let him be soundly flogged!'  "Yet the shah, for all, "respected  Omar's judgment, and when, a week  later, another Idea for a poem came to  his mind and was feverishly executed  he sent for the fearless and fair critic  again.  "'Another poem, Omar, a better  one. I'm sure you'll think it is a better one,' he said wistfully. And he began to read the second poem to the old  man.  "But in tbe middle of the reading  Omar turned and started for the door.  " 'Where are you going?'  said the  shah in amazement.  "Omar looked back and shrugged his  shoulders.  " 'To the stables,' he answered, 'for  another   flogging.'"  using but a few bottles I was com-  p'etely lestored to health.

"Happy months" Is the name applied  to the little mince pies made at Christmas time throughout Englaud and  served to any guests who may call at  the house during the holidays.  The saying is that for every one of  these tiny pies one eats a happv month  will come during the year, only the  pies must be given to the one who  eats them.  When one calls at the house the little  pies are brought forth with a glass of  wine or a cup of tea. and. however  well satisfied one may already be as  regards one's appetite or how many of  these "happy Tionth" pics he has already eaten, it is considered a marked-  breach of etiquette to refuse the little  pie, although one is allowed to take it  home and eat It later. This, however,  Is not very often done, for who would  refuse the coming of a happy month,  by refusing to overtax tbe stomach for  just one more little pie?  In some parts of England these little  pies are literally made by the dozen,  so there will be plenty of tbera for  family and friends. They are made of  the richest of puff paste, too, which, at  the best of times. Is "an Indigestible  goody, and the crust Is filled witb a  mince meat filling that is even richer  than the crust  called them. At the same time he  wrote many rhymes with the serious  intention of having them, if possible,  recognized as poems. But he could not  get them published. Even compositions whose worth he had tested���������those  that "would please people when I'd  stand up and read 'em to them"���������would  be returned promptly by every magazine to which he offered them for publication. The Hoosier dialect was too  "low down" for the average magazine  editor.  Finally in a freak of boyish indignation, to prove that what editors really  wauted was not originality, but imitation, be devised the scheme of writing  a poem iu imitation of Poe and of  palming it off on the public as a real  poem'of Poe's recently discovered. The  scheme was very skillfully planned  and very'deftly executed and successful beyond anything the clever deviser  of It-had ever dreamed. From one end  of the country to the other "Leonainie"  was hailed as a veritable "find," a bit  of genius' most genuine ore. Riley had  his revenge. He had some trouble,  however. In proving that he^was not an  intentiodal forger.  He lost bis newspaper position, but  he immediately got another and better  oue on the Indianapolis Journal.

Greenwood   should   be   a   very  busy and  important town.    It is  in the midst of  a country  rich in  timber, fruit, cliitfate, scenery and  minerals.    A few miles to the. east  can be seen   some of the  best orchards   on   tho   continent,   while  westward thousands of acres await  the fanner or are already planted  in cereals, vegetables or  fruit.    A  little  over  three  miles away  the  Grauby   mines are  working  over  live  hundred   miners    and    have  enough   of  ore   in  sight  to  keep  running   for    a    hundred    years.  There are millions of dollars worth  of gold, silver  and   copper  in  the  mountains that shadow tho second  Butte,   but   this   mineral   wealth  cannot walk.    Somebody will have  to  a<=sist it  down  the  hill to the  railroad,    hi addition  to  all  our  attractions for  labor and  capital,  we have smokeless smelters in and  around the city that should prove,  a   great   drawing   card  with   the  tourists.

S.. Magce,  a methodist preacher, is the latast  offender in this respect, and his remarks printed in that good old  paper, (lie Toronto Globe, have  produced a cyclone, of indignation  in Kelson and caused the local  papers to fill tho talkative parson  full of paper shot. Magee told the  Globc'that" '"'the dark~"spot~in B'rit-  ish Columbia is the Kootenays.  There in the Kootenay country the  labor conditions tend to make the  people Godless and irreligious, the  extremes of atheistic, anarchistic,  socialism arc rampant, and the  brothel and the whiskey shop go  together to degrade men."  Mr. Magee is wrong about the  people in Kootenay being Godless,  etc. In this respect they are much  the same as in other parts of Canada, but he is rightabout the brothel  and whiskey shop being together.  About the first thing you sen in  Nelson as you get off the steamer  is a' long row of houses devoted to  prostitution and tho illicit sale of  -liquor. Farther up town there is  hardly anything evil unless it  might be a tinhorns' game of draw  or blackjack in the Bodega or some  other saloon. 'The city of Nelson  as a general rule is one of the most  decent places in America, outside  of the scarlet spot on Lake street.  The people of West Kootenay assay high in good qualities and surpass those who dwell in the cent  belt in almost every way.] In the  East prostitution'is scattered thinly  over communities,.', while in the  Kootenays it is hived behind a  bunch of red lights aud made to  stay there.; All .over the Kootenays and 'other districts in B. C.,  wherever the towns are of any  size, the red-light district with its  illegal liquor-selling attachment  can be found. , Wise men have debated upon this question for een2*  turies, but no serum has yet been  discovered that will -annihilate; the  oldest profession on earth. Magee  did not tell the Globe how to abate  these evils, nor state who the anarchists were that he met in the  West. He is assured of a warm  reception upon his next visit to  Nelson.  Singing is recommended as an  aid in 'the cure of tuberculosis,  even if insanity does increase in  the neighborhood.  With all the blow aud bluster  Prince Rupert is not even a one-  horse town: There is not a single  equine in the place.  Onk of the signs- of au approaching election is the starting  of so many masked Liberal newspapers in various districts.  Windy Young is starting a paper on the Queen Charlotte islands.  Tlis sheet should carry that country into the port of prosperity.  A Scotchman has invented a  gun that will throw a shell from  Paris to London. This makes  ship armor useless unless made out  of Kootenay beefsteaks.  Tun season for forest fires is  close at hand and the government  should be alive to tho situation.  This province cannot afford to lose  its valuable timber hy fire as has  been annually the case for many  years past.   Tin.; paper at Keremeos is only  a fortnight old and alreadv has a  door in the front of the office. If  business keeps up tho editor in a  short time should he able, to have  a bulldog in the back yard and one  or two townsites near his home  plate.    Movie seems to be a good town.  Tho editor of the local paper was  presented with a mess of trout the  the other day. Fred is now waiting for some, rancher to walk in  from Cranbrook with a bag of turnips. It must be pleasant to-live  in a town where-the editor does  not have to pay for brain food.  In Rossland the'Board of Trade  is dying for lack of enthusiasm.  Hero in Greenwood we have a reincarnated board that can and will  do a great deal ' to benefit thf> city  and district. It should affiliate  with similar organizations in the  Boundary for- the purpose of advertising the entire district.  The tourist season will open  next month. By advertising and  looking after the business thousands of globe-trotters should visit  Greenwood this summer. There  are some great sights to be seen  around the second Butte, in fact,  we have several scenic' effects that  carihot"'be'scen "in "New York or  New Denver.  A syndicate of ten Grand Forks  men are sending a prospector to  Findlay river.
