A  RICH  STRIKE  "wawK*���������"  A lead of high-grade ore was struck in the Big  Tunnel on Tuesday. The ore is a little over 1,800  feet from the portal of the tunnel and 818 feet below  the surface of the Defiance claim.

To the Kditor of The Ledge:  Sir:  Like many other residents in our  city, I was disgusted yesterday at the  exhibition of a man reclining in bed in  the window of P. Burns & Co., supposed to be under the influence of hypnotism. Except as an advertisement  of a visiting hypnotist, I fail to see  any practical good of such an exhibition, on the coatrary it is a revolting  sight for children and one likely to  give an unpleasant shock to many  of them. I sincerely hope that in the  future our Mayor will see that such a  thing is impossible in our town. I cannot help feeling great surprise that  such a respectable firm as P. Burns &  Co., could allow the use of its window  for such a purpose.  Yours faithfully,  M. F. Hir,-roN. THE.LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  yi fletw year's  Story  By AGNES B. COLDWELL '  Copyright, 1010. by American Press  Association.  It was the last day of the year, and  Marcus Eldredge had determined that  Its closing hour would marl* the end  of bis earthly career.  'Til wail until midnight and go out  wiih the old year," he muttered as he  pressed the weapon tentatively against  his  head.    As  he stood  there in  the  gaslight   his   unlatched   door   swung  slowly   open,   and   a   girl's   face   appeared, startled and  pale as her eyes  met  his  reflection  iu   the glass.    His  glance met hers defiantly.  "Coward!'' she said .sharply.  "How do you know that 1 am?" he  demanded without turning around.  Ills  face slowly reddened as the contempt  deepened on hers, and involuntarily his.  right arm was lowered and the revolver was placed on the bureau. . "How  do you know that I'm a coward?" he  persisted.  "Because you wore going to do that!''  She nodded toward the weapon, and ho  could see that she was afraid of it.  "No one hut u coward would destroy  himself."  "What do you know about It?" El-  dredge flashed around and faced the  stranger wlio had so unexpectedly  meddled with his affairs. "Do you  know what It is to try for years to  reach a certain goal and then fail? Do  you know what it is to work and wait  and starve and suffer privation���������and  then fail in the end? Then, added to  the failure, do you know what it is to  tramp the streets looking for any sort  of work without even a measure of  success? What do you know about  these things?"  "You are a coward, as I said before  ���������the biggest craven 1 ever met. You're  a 'fraid cat!'" Tlie girl elided with n  childish angry sob.  "You don't tindersfand," he said, a  sullen look creeping into his face. "If  a fellow can't iret work and hasn't got  a coat of money there's only one decent thing lie can do, and that is to  get off the earth!"  "The   New   Year   holds   no   promise  for   you?"   she   asked   soft'y.   with   a  note of courage in her voice.  "Not a thing!'  "Is there anybody dependent upon  you?" she asked.  "I haven't tt relative or a friend In  the world��������� nobody who cares a hang  what becomes of me!"  "I wonder if you've thought about  the trouble it would make if you���������  harmed yourself here���������in this boarding house?" She shivered a little, and  -'ht-r-Cyes. evading tlie vicinity of the  revolver, met his inquiring glance.  "I suppose you mean it would make  Sirs. Jones a lot of trouble���������notoriety  and what not."  "I wish you were not such a coward!" she cried scornfully. "If you  only had tbe making of half a man in  you.'"  "I have the ingredients to make a  successful man if 1 can have the  chance," he retorted.  "What sort of a chance do you  want?" she asked, with sudden eagerness.   "What is your business?'-'  lie hesitated an instant, and then he  admitted half defiantly. "I'm an artist"  "An artist!" she echoed doubtfully.  "Why have yo-.i not succeeded? What  do tbe critics wiy?"  "The consensus of opinion was that  I'd missed my vocation. One man said  J did chairs and tables so well in my  Suffered with Throat Trouble  Air. B. W.  D. Barnes,  ex - Sheriff  of Warren  County,  Tennessee,  in a letter  from "Mc-  Mlnn vllle,  Ten nessee,  writes:  "I had  throat  trouble  and had  three doctors treating  me. All  fulled to do  in e any  good, and  pronounced  m y health  gone. I con-  eluded  to  try Paruna, and ofter using: four bottles can say I was entirely cured."  Unable to Work.  Mr. Gustav Ilimmelreich, Hochhelm,  Texas, writes:  "For a number of years I suffered  whenever I took cold, with severe attacks of asthma, which usually yielded  tc the common home remedies.  "Last year, however, I suffered for  elg-lit months without interruption so  that I could not do any work at all.  The various medicines that were prescribed brought me no relief.  "After taking six bottles of Peruna,  two of Lacupla and two of Manalin, I  em free of my trouble so that I can do  all my farm work again. I can heartily recommend this medicine to any  one..who suffers with this annoying  complaint and believe that they will  obtain good results."  Mr. B. W. D. Barnes.

"I know it's rank trash���������no good," he  said honestly.  "Now you've made a new beginning. You can eliminate art. Why  don't you go into the furniture business���������design chairs and tables or sell  them���������or anything? You've got to  start somewhere, you know," she  urged.  "You don't know the disappointments I've had," he objected uneasily.  "A girl doesn't understand what it is  to have to face a blank destiny���������on an  empty stomach."  "You haveu't anybody but yourself  to take care of, aud I'm ashamed of  you.   So there!"  Marcus Eldredge looked down at the  graceful form iu bis doorway. It was  a strange situation. He who had been  isolated in the midst of the great city,  friendless and forsaken, seemed to  have found a friend in tin's eager, gray  eyed girl, who, passing his doorway,  had chanced to see him rehearsing his  cowardly part in the little tragedy he  had determined to play that New  Year's eve.  "I'm ashamed of myself," he said  suddenly. "I don't know what has  made me so blue utrfess"��������� He bit oil  the words and evaded the questioning  of her eyes.  "It's getting late, and I must be going.    I  wonder if you'd sell  me that  revolver!   I want it for a certain purpose," she said, ignoring his confusion.  He placed the weapon in ber hand  without a word, but as she dropped it  Into a little bag at her waist and drew  out_a purse he waved it away.  " "-Please do not.   No, I shall get along  all right. I understood why you bought  the revolver and I appreciate your delicate kindness, only you must not let  mn act more like a cad than I have  already done.   I can get a job as waiter in some of the restaurants till after  New Year's; then I'm going into the  furniture business���������going to butt right  in.   Wish me luck?"  "I do, most heartily," she said, happily holding out a small gloved hand  for bis large clasp. "I know you'll  succeed, and I hope you'll forgive my  presumption in speakings to you as I  have done. I opened your door by  mistake for the one on the floor above.  At the end of the new year I shall  send for you to come to me, and if you  want the revolver then you can have  it."  "I shall never forget your coming,"*  he said, bending low over her hand,  "and I shall uot fail to keep any appointment yon may do me the honor to  make." An instant later the door  closed and she was gone.  "By Jove! Tbiuk of a little slender  thing like that supporting berself!"  ejaculated Marcus as he paced the  narrow confines of his room. "Then  look nt a great hulking brute like me!  I make myself tired. Guess I'll look  up u waiter job this very night. No  time like New Year's eve In Gotham!"  Filled with new courage for the future, even though his cherished castle  of another life work had crumbled  about his ears, Marcus dug out his  suit case and left it with a convenient  uncle In the district,, who nt the same  time permitted hlni to don a rusty suit  of evening clothes. At the Qrst restaurant Into which he dodged he met a  distracted head waiter, who gladly set  hlni to work, and there was nol a happier fellow In New York city that  night than the hungry young man who  courageously started on lila new career by carrying ilelhious viands to  and fro for his less hungry patrons.  Two days afterward Marcus got a  Job wiih a furniture house. He sold f  chairs ond tables and other furniture.  He succeeded so well In the work that  he was promoted to more responsible*  positions, and finally he was sent out  on the road as a traveling salesman.  When the year drew to a close ho  was drawing n good salary and saving  money, for what purpose lie did not  admit to himself.    He bud  had one  groat and hitter disappointment during the year���������he hud never been able  to find any trace of the girl who had  so mysteriously appeared nt his door  that New Year's eve niul who had  fairly slung him Into a renewed Interest In life ami had challenged I lie dormant talent for money making that  bad been stifled hy his dalliance with  an art for which he had no real,  genius,  Mrs. Jones lircl disavowed any  knowledge of such a young lady as he  described. "It couldn't be Mamie  Brooks from the, room over yours."  said tho landlady indifferently, "for  Miss Brooks has got hair as red as  can be, and she ain't small and graceful.   She's stout and tall."  With that Marcus had to be content.  But il is needless to say he counted  the months as they flew by, hoping  for some word from the girl who had  actually saved his life from his own  destructive hand. She said slip would  send for him at the end of the year,  and ho was eager to meet her���������to tell  her he had cast aside his cowardly  despair and Imd put his shoulder to  the wheel of labor and was earning  success. lie had dreams, too, but  these he hardly dared foster.  Now Year's eve found him once more  In New York and again domiciled in  his little room at Mrs. Jones' boarding  house, although lie really had his headquarters iu a more fashionable section  of the city. He sat on the edge of tho  little bod and tried to relive the scene  of that other night a year ago and  tried lo bring up tlio same feeling of  despair, but iu vain. IIis heart sang  of nothing save work well done and a  hope that something greater might bo  his, for he had never ceased to think  of the girl who had called him a  coward.  There came a knock at his door, and  It flew open to reveal a messenger boy,  "Miss Danforth has asked me to fetch  you to her," said lhe messenger. Kl-  dredge grabbed his hat and went.  "Danforth" must be the name of his  mysterious friend.  He was scarcely prepared to be  taken to a fashionable uptown street,  where a trim maid admitted him to a  charmingly furnished room. A slender  form arose from a deep chair and came  toward him. As their eyes met in that  first eager glance there was much revealed of what u year's waiting had  meant to both of them.  "You have come for the revolver?"  she asked wistfully as she laid her  hand in his.  Marcus shrugged his shoulders and  laughed for pure happiness. "Not on  your life. See what you've done for  me, Miss Danforth! I owe everything  to your heavenly sympathy. You've  made a man out of me."  "I must explain how I happened to  be there. ' I was on my way up to see  Miss Brooks, a girl I had seen at the  settlement 'house, and 1 opened your  door by mistake," sho explained. "I  hope you have forgiven me."  "I'd forgive anybody tonight!" cried  Marcus happily. "I thought last year  was a bully one; but, Miss Danforth,  I wonder if you'd go out with me tonight and join the crowd���������and help me  to usli'.-r in what I feel is going to be  the h-ippiest year of my life?"  As they stood together in the shadow  of old Trinity and heard the chimes  nsher in the dawning year a new ligit  came Into Helen Danforth's eyes���������the  dawn of something that would make  this New Year the happiest in her life*  as well a9 his.

Tt starts wytli a sneeze  ���������a slight cold���������and ends with a  complication of troubles. It lays the  strong man on his back; it tortures  him with fevers and chills, with headaches ancl backaches. Its victims are  left low-spirited ancl depressed, and  an easy prey to bronchitis, pneumonia, rheumatism., ancl often that  most dreaded of all diseases���������con  sumption. You can avoid la grippe  entirely hy keeping the blood rich  and red l>v tlie occasional use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. The trouble  takes as its victims those whose  blood is in a poor condition, and its  after-effects arc more dangerous and  more lasting than the trouble itself.  For the after-effects of la grippe  there is absolutely no other medicine  can equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Every close helps to make rich, red  blood that .drives disease from the  system, and makes weak, despondent  men ancl women bright, cheerful ancl  strong. If you have suffered in any  way from the epidemic of la grippe  that has been sweeping over Canada,  give this great health-restoring medicine a trial, and it will not disappoint you. Here is proof of the wonderful power, of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills over the after-effects of this  disease. Mr. P. E.^ Paulin, collector  of customs at Caraquct, N.B., says:  "A few winters ago I had a severe  attack of la grippe, which completely broke me down. I had to take to  my bed for several weeks, and although during that time I employed  a doctor I did not seem to recover  from the trouble. I was left terribly  weak, did not sleep well, had night  sweats and little or no appetite. I  was really a physical wreck. On a  former occasion I had used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for general debility  with such great success that I decided to try them again. I sent for n  half dozen boxes and began to take  the Pills at once. When taking the  second box I began to feel quite n  change in my condition. I was able  to walk about the house and my appetite was improving. From that on  I gained strength every day and before the six boxes were done I was  able to return to the office and attend to my work. I have since enjoyed the best of health, and think  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the best  medicine for trouble of this kind."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills not only  promptly cure the serious aftereffects of la grippe, but they make  well and strong all persons suffering  from any form of debility or general  weakness. These Pills have no laxative or purgative action; their mission is fo make new, rich, red blood,  and thus fortify and strengthen every  organ and every part of the body.

She had been out only  once, but claimed that for a woman to  fight a duel with a man was equivalent  ��������� to tbe record of "the immortal" himself. She declined to appear before  the committee, but suit a certificate  of n physician who had attended her  after her eucouuter lu which she bad  been wounded. The committee, all of  whom were gallant geutlemeu, unanimously voted to admit the applicant.  When the evening for the banquet  arrived Count Mennerzek received his  guests in uu anteroom communicating  with the banquet hall. He looked  about as if for some one and said:  "But 1 have been told that 1 am to  entertain a lady.   1 dou't see her."  "Sbe wrote, count," said one of the  invltfltloD committee, "that since a  woman would be out of place among  so runny men she would merely appear for a few minutes after coffee  Is served."  The host led the way iuto the banquet room aud stood ut his seat at the  head of the tuhle flanked by a man on  bis right who und fought the next  greatest number of duels���������thirteen���������  and on bis left !>y one who had fought  the next number���������eleven. The others  were arranged in accordance with  their records. One seat was not oc-  cupled-tlmt at the end of the table  opposite the count. It was reserved for  the lady.  For three hours there was the hum  of conversation, naturally about the  encounters of the conversers, while  the popping of corks'represented those  contests wherein pistols or rifles had  been used. In several cases men met  raeu who had been adversaries. It  was singular to hear tbem discuss in  n friendly way combats in which they  hud tried to kill each other. Then  there were those who had fought anil  hud never been reconciled. Despite  the Injunction of the host that every  mau should be every other man's  friend some of these glared at one an-  other as though they would like lo go  ' out again and settle their quarrel. One  couple attempted to leave the room  for such a purpose, but found themselves locked iu. The count hud foreseen that the meeting of so many men  who had so often fought might kindle  anew some smoldering flame and had  taken tbe necessary precautions.  Coffee had been brought on and had  been drunk and still the one guest  In whom was felt more Interem than  in an tne rest trvi'ttnir ������n.i am appi-nr,  Mennerzek. whose spirits were ut the  highest, called out to lite committee-  man who had told him lhe lady would  Join thorn nt coffee to know why she  did not appear.  "t told her. count." was the reply,  "that I could not uiiim������ the exact time'  :olTee would he nerved, but I thought  It would he til IU o'clock. She will  tie here at that hour."  There was soni-MliIng lu this light-  luff woman coimeited with the witch-  lug bour of night iluit added to tbe  ������������������est of her expected entrance. A clock  resting on u mantel over a broad lire-  place mar era the hour, ana many were  the glances cast at it hy the revelers.  When thi* hands were near the bour  of YZ every face was turned toward  the door' at which the guest would  enter. The count, who sat facing the  entrance, gave an order that the door  should be uu locked. This was done,  and the c-ouversatlou gradually dropped off until the cloi I- struck 12, when  It ceased entirely  A few minutes after 12 the door was  thrown open by a servnut, and the  lady stepped Into the apartment, Every  man rose.  The woman who was entitled to a  place among these duelists was about  twenty-five years old, of medium  height, a willowy figure and very dark  balr nnd eyes. She wore a cloak,  which she handed to the servant who  had admitted her. It was evident that  she had been benurlful and that her  beauty hud been lost by sorrow, for  her face bore unmistakable signs of  having suffered She advanced to the  vacant chair at the end of the table  opposite the host, and as she seated  herself the others resumed their chairs  Meanwhile the expression on the  count's face changed lo one of serious  unci eager curiosity. lie was the first���������  naturally the first sluco he was the  last���������to speak.  "Your face i3 familiar to me, madam.  May I ask where I have met you?"  The answer came icy cold:  "On the fleld.    It's lo my encounter  with   you   that   I   am  entitled  to  the  honor of a place among you here."  "Pardon tne; I have never fought a  woman."  "You fought one you thought to be a  beardless boy.   I was that boy."  The count started. A slight pallor  overspread his face. The woman continued:  "The duel you fought before that,  count, was with my husband the day  after our marriage.. I offered.my for  tune to any man .who would kill you  One ti'Ied to oblige me, but lost his  ��������� life iu doing so. Then .1' felt that it  was my own time to act. IVrsontiting  the.brother of:this man who tried .to  avenge me, I challenged you and was-  carried off the Held, as it was sup  posed, mortally woundi'd."  - There was a - pause. The clock on  the mantel ticked' loudly In the other  wise silent room. Then the woman  continued:  "As you see. I recovered. I was plan  Ding further effort to punish you for  your many crimes when I heard that  you were about to retire from the dueling field. I secured an Invitatiou here  in order that you might grace your retirement with oiie more victim. I have  a proposition."  The count continued to stare at'his  only woman guest, but did not.speak.  "Gentlemen." continued the lady, "1  nave uo formal challenge for our host.  I simply request that we-be furnished  with pistols and that some one of your  number will givp us a signal. We can  do so as we sit and with a large number of expert witnesses to see fair  play."  No one'spoke for a few moments;  theu the man on the host's right said:  '���������"Gentlemen, you bear the lady's proposition. It seems to me that we are  iu honor hound to accord her'the opportunity she asks provided our host consents to her terms."  "I will not light a woman," said the  count, almost with n groan.  "You xlitill Bght a woman." said the  lady, "or I will post-you as a coward  all over the capital."  All lookPd toward the count. It  seemed that he read the hand of fate  In the coming of this woman whose  life he had wrecked. He sat irresolute, as If trying to make up his mind  what to do, whether to sacrifice her  or himself. There wore too many witnesses for him to act any other part  than that of a man. lie could not kill  u woman bpfnre them, especially one  Iip had so iujured. If- he did not kill  her she would kill him. He must accept one or the other of these alternatives.  .   "Come,. count."   said   his  friend od  his right, "what is your decislouV"  "Bring the pistols." he replied in a  scarcely audible voice.  A smile of triumph lighted tbe face  of his adversary.  Oue of the guests -who was to stand  as second In au affair to come off In  the early morning had a case of dueling pistols within .reach. They were  brought. The count appointed one of  his guests to act for hira. and the lady  appointed another to act for her.  - But such action was superfluous.  The count knew that he was doomed  nnd It mattered not whether be was  or was not properly served. As for  the lady, she cared uot for ber life  provided she could kill the man who  had slain her husband almost at the  very bridal.  The pistols having been examined,  one was handed to the count, the  other to the lady. Oue of the guests  rose from his chair, holding a handkerchief in his hand.  "Are you ready?" he asked.  "Ready," said the lady in a Arm  voice.  The count gave the speaker a look  to signify that he was ready.  The handkerchief fluttered to the  table. A single shot rang out The  count foil dead. His weapon had not  '>een discharged.  KIDNEY TROUBLE  Suffered Ten Years���������Relieved in Three  Months Thanks to PE-RU-NA.  FIZEH.  C. B. PIZBR, Mt.

Conclusive  Proof  An old. farmer was skeptical as to  whether people who were miles apart'  could really talk to each other over a  telephone wire.  One' day his wife went to make a  visit to a distant inond who had a  telephone in her house. During the  afternoon the farni"r visited a near  neighbor who also boasted a house  j telephone and who persuaded the  farmer to call up his wife as a little  surprise.  Following instructions he put the receiver to his ear, and, after the usual  preliminaries, he shouted:  "Hello, Jane."  Just then a flash of lightning caused  by the heat of the summer day struck  thc wire and he fell spiawling to the  floor.  "It's wonderful; that was Jane all  right."  '.'HE  UMPIRE  WAS  GAME.

Iu the ulntb Inning,  with the score 0 to 0 in favor  of the Athletics, the first man up for  Pittsburg made a home run hit to center, and the visiting team at once set  up claim that It was too dark to play.  The center fielder came all the way  In ancl preteuded that he could not see  the ball in the gathering darkness.  "Here," said Kelly; "give me a glove,"  and with that he started for center  field. "I'll see how dark It is out there."  he said. "Yon, Casey and Galvin. bat  me out a few." Players and spectators gasped, hut Kelly made good his  bluff. lie went out to deep center  and. with lhe smoke of the mills lying  low about him. actually caught ten or  fifteen long Hue drives and high Hies  from the bats of tbe two pitchers without missing one.  Then the umpire came In and, taking  off his glove, said: "Play ball. If I can  see 'em out there, .vou fellows can."

Old Superstition and Cold Facts From  the Astronomers.  There is an old superstition which  dies hard, and that Is that the position of the horns of the uew moon  tells what the weather will be. If tinhorns of the crescent are on the same  level it will hold water, aud hence it  is a dry moon, but if it is tipped up  then the water will, run out. aud it is  a wet moon. ��������� .-  One thing has' .helped keep this belief alive.   The moon  is "dry" in the  part of the spring that is usually fair.  _ while It is "wet" during the season of  autumn rains.  If this were a sure sign of the  weather we could have our predictions published many years in advance, for an astronomer can predict  the exact position of the moon at any  time iu the future.  The cause for the different positions  of the crescent is simple. The moon is  south of the suu la the autumn and  north of it in spring.' The crescent is  found by tbe light of' the sun falling  on the moon, aud the horns are naturally in a Hue perpendicular to the direction of lhe sun from the moon.

And what do you suppose he did?"-  "Well, I suppose he doubled it," remarked  a listener.  "Doubled it? Not Rupert!" exclaimed the teller of the story. "Why,  he simply took his pen and wrote,  'Mr. and' before his wife's name and  handed thc book back."  "To what do you ascribe your success in acquiring money?"

I feel impelled to mak#  known to my suffering sisters the merits of ORANGE LILY. It differs from  other so-called remedies In that It is not taken internally. It Is a strictly local  treatment, and Is applied directly to the affected organs. Its curative cloments  arc absorbed Into the congested tissues, expelling the stagnant foreign matter  which has been Irritating the membrane and oppressing the nqrves, and a grow-  K feeling of physical and mental relief ia noticeable almost from the start. It  Is a positive, scientific remedy, and even if you use no more than tho Freo Trial  treatment  you  will  b������ very materially  benefited.  FREE TRIAL.

The survivors demanded that the bridegroom sacrifice his bride.. He refused; and,  then both were thrown out to fill  the mouths of the animals.  The party started on the trip in  22 horse sledges and were only a  short way oa their journey when  attacked by hundreds of wolyes.

It will provide for a  railroad from end to end of the  Republic. It is the project long  considered under the title of the  Darien Line. It is to open up  [ the virgin, country on the Pacific  slope and parallel that coast, One  day it will be an important link  in the inevitable line linking  North and South America. The  United States is watching with  an anxious eye this British invasion. Ratification of the contract  will give Great Britain a foothold on the isthums at the very  brink of the canal- and the right  to assert a "sphere of influence."  Once having attained this no one  expects Britain to loosen its grip.  It was expected American opposition would prevent completion  of the negotions but now it seems  plain the contract will be closed  within a few weeks. The line  will begin at David and will be  extended eastward toward the  Colombian border.  Price is $5 id Buckram wiih gilt top,  or$7.50in genuine full library morocco.  TERMS are most liberal.

Hobson Joins War Prophets  That Japan will never permit  the United States to complete  the Panama canal was the declaration of Representative Hobson  of Alabama at the White House.  Hobson gave unqualified endorsement to the statement of Sir  Frederick Villiers. the famous  British war correspondent, that  the Americans are misguided and  on the brink of war with Japan.  ''Every well informed diplomat and every armv and naval  officer of the United States," said  Hobson, "knows that war with  Japan is inevitable and that this  country is uuprepard for the  struggle. It is not to be thought  for one moment that Japan will  let us finish the gateway to the  Pacific now being constructed on  the isthmus of Panama." Hobson declared that the United  States would find no friends-in  Europe until the war had begun  and that many would rejoice at  our predicament.  It may only be a question of a  short time before the locomotives  of the Intercolonial Railway  are  fired with oil fuel.    The recent  developed, wells of Albert County  are yielding abundantly of both  oil and gas, and already preparations are under  way to supply  natural gas, to Moncton houses  for light and heat, and to manufacturers and others for power  purposes.   A larger 'flow of oil is  expected after new wells  are opened, and the operators are yery  hopeful over the outlook.   The  crude petroleum so far obtained  possesses in its natural state all  of the qualities required for first  class fuel,  burning witn a clear  bright flame and  generating   a  tremendous   heat.     So   full   of  promise are the operations in Albert countv that the attention of  the I, C. R. officials has for some  time been given  to speculating  what the probable results migh t  be, ane whether or not they will  soon justify the railway in substituting1 crude oil  for coal as a  producer of motive power.   The  ad van tag-e of oil fuel are obvious,  as by its use greater speed could  be obtained,  as well as greater  cleanliness and comfort of travel.  It is claimed also that the use of  oil as fuel would be a measure of  economy that would be an important factor in its favor.  HE DID NOT ADVERTISE.

His fav'rite trick in sliootin' was to grab  his victim's right,  Then draw his own revolver���������and the  rest was jest "good night."  He worked in succession  on nine stou  and well armed men,  But a sickly lookin' stranger made Pete's  feet slip up at ten.  Pete had followed out his program and  had passed the fighting word;  He  grabbed  the stranger's right  hand  when a funny thing occurred;  Thc  stranger  was  left-handed,,   wliich  Pete hadn't figured out,  And, afore he fixed.his error, Pete was  dead beyond a doubt.

'  Minard's Liniment Cures   Colds,  etc  Interesting   Relics    of   Massacre   Discovered  Recently.  The exact spot where 10 members  of Capt. Cook's expedition were massacred by the Maoris 137 years ago  has been definitely determined, and  some interesting relics of the ancient  tragedy discovered by Robert McNub  in Grass Cove, Queen Charlotte  Sound.  It may, perhaps, be remembered  that on Dec. 17, 1773, the captain of  the Adventure sent two officers and  eight men across the sound to gather  wild geese for the ship's company.  They failed to return, and searchers  who were sent out finally discovered  evidence of a tragedy in a number i f  baskets containing human flesh and  fern root, also a hand of a white man.  Grass Cove was previously conjectured to be tho scene of the ancient  tragedy, but. Mr. McNab, however,  has settled the question once and for  nil by discovering the exact spot  where the Englishmen were murdered.  After Mr: McNab and the party of  friends with him hud decided that the  massacre took place in a certain bend  in Grass Cove���������a conclusion to which  they came by comparing the locality  with tho description given in Cook's  popers���������thoy went ashore and spoke  io a settler, Mr. Greensill, who was  living on thc spot, regarding any evi.  dencc of the mussacro that he may  have seen. Mr. Greensill said he had  dug up in his garden an old flintlock, a barrel, a bayonet, nnd some  other kind of a weapon he was un-  able to identify.  This latter weapon Mr. McNab ut  once identified as an officer's hanger,  which was doubtless the one used by  Midshipman Rowe, who was in  charge oi the boat's crew. There was  a description of the sword given in  the accounts and they corresponded  exactly with the weapon dug up.  It was with that hanger that Midshipman Rowe killed two Maoris and  wounded the chief before being overpowered and killed. This discovery  places beyond a shadow of a doubt  the exact locality of the massacre,  which took place on the spot now occupied as Mr. Greensill's garden in  Grass Cove. Mr. McNab discountenances the idea that the weapon may  have been carried there from the fact  that the locality exactly corresponds  with the description given by Capt.  Cook.���������London Standard. ?, -  Faithful to the End  .. "Kind sir," said the- weary wayfarer, "I have lost nearly everything  ���������money, friends, self-respect.

She 'writes:.  "For months I suffered with a running sore on my leg. I tried several  ointments and salves, but none of  them could bring about a cure. The  sore would just heal over, and then  break out again. I read in a newspaper one day, of the good Zum-Buk  had done, and so I determined In trv  it and see what this balm would do  for me. I also purchased some Zani-  ���������Buk soap.  "I washed the sore night and morning with the soap, and then applied  tlie balm. I continued with this treatment, and after using Zam-Buk for a  few weeks the sore was completely  healed. , I have recommended Zam-  Buk to one or two of my friends for  sores, and in their cases' it has been  equally  effective."

Cottage Looms In Suffolk at Work on  Royal  Velvet.  In the ancient borough of Sudbury  in Suffolk the few remaining hand  loom weavers are hard at work making the velvet ior the coronation  robes.  Among the number are the Misses  Foakes, members of a family of  weavers who in days past were'makers  of bunting for the royal navy. In  their cottage, which was once visited  by the Queen, are two.hand looms on  which are two lengths of b^autilul  velvet, one rich crimson in color and  the other dark brown.  The weavers are .seated when at  their looms, their feet working pedals-  resembling those of an organ. There  ar two sets of threads, the visible one  forming the. back of the material,- and  the other the"pile, each'of these being  delicately threaded through vertical  threads known as the harness. The  weaver passes the shuttle backward  and forward, and each warp and weft  is pressed home by a swinging wooden frame. A cutter which runs across  the loom on a wire cuts the threads,  to make the pile.  The process of manufacture is slow  and tedious. The time is occupied  not so much in the weaving as in the  cleaning. At each foot or so-made  the weaver uses a curious knife like  a spokeshave and shaves the surface  of the velvet to clean it. There are  now not more than thirty hand loom  weavers left in Sudbury, the Misses  Foalkes being among the number.  The rows of weavers' cottages, now oc-  ������������������upied by other artisans and general  workers, show the extent of the industry fifty years ago.

BABY'S OWN TABLETS  FOR    ALL  BABIES  Nearly Hanged as a Spy.  Perhaps the most remarkable incident in the career of Senator Elkins,  who has just died, occurred when, as  a young man, he was fighting for the  Union in the Civil War. He was captured by a guerrilla band, and would  have been promptly hanged as a spy  had it not been for the intervention  of a member of the band, who recqg-  ���������li/.'Hl him as a boyhood friend.. Many  years later, when Senator Elkins was  rich and famous, he heard that the  iiiui wno had saved his life was serving twenty years in prison for robbing a bank, and he used his influence to bring about the release of his  former benefactor.'  Every mother .of young children  should keep c, box of '-Baby's Own  Tablets in the house. No other medicine has relieved so many little ones  of the ailments that "afflict them as  have Baby's Own Tablets���������no other  medicine can be given baby with that  absolute sureness of safety as can  these Tablets, The mother has the  guarantee of a Government analyst  that they do not contain a particle of  those harmful drugs that make those  so-called'"soothing" stuffs so dangerous to the life of the little one. The  Tablets never fail to. be of benefit.  Concerning them Mrs. Jno. A.

Tlie following rules will ��������� be good  ones to apply in connection with  handling eggs on a co-operative basis;  that is, where the community is  thickly settled enough for a good  number to be.shipped:  A number of co-operative egg-producing associations are now in opera-,  tion throughout tlie state and have  been unusually successful in securing  for the, members of the association a  satisfactory premium over ordinary  store eggs. We recently noted the  rules of one of these associations. In  the thought that they would be of interest to poultrymen generally, we  reproduce them herewith.  The eggs must not be over 7 days  old at any.time when delivered at the  receiving place. They must be  brought in al least once every week  in winter and in hot weather they  must be brought in twice a week.  Tho eggs must be taken in from  the hen house twice a day.  All eggs must be clean nnd of a  uniform size. No small or overly  large eggs must be accepted.  As soon as gathered the eggs should  be stamped and placed in the cartons  ancl kept in a cool place .until delivered. A cellar is all right if not too  damp or musty.  Brown eggs shall be put in one  carton and- white in another and each  carton.so marked.     '  Stamp every egg with your number  stamp so that the number shows up  when the eggs are in the carton. Put  thc egg in the filler cornerwise and  not straight up and down.,,  Your number stamp should be  stamped on the right side on top of  the carton and the color stamp on the  left side.  -���������.,,-  Don't-use too much ink in stamping. It might work through the shell,  only a light mark is necessary. Try  your stamp on paper first.  Don't wash the eggs. That takes  off the glaze. Keep nest, boxes and  floors clean and well bedded with  clean straw. Use a cloth to wipe the  eggs if necessary.  Don't allow broody hens to sit on  the eggs.   Close them up separately.  Keep the small cockerels away from  the hens when large enough. It is  best to keep the. large roosters away  also when it can be done.  . Don't put in any small or pullet  eggs, Use them at home. Also all  odd shaped or spotted eggs. They  are just as good for use at home.  . Don't put in any eggs from hidden  nests, or eggs you arc not absolutely  ���������sure of.  Remember that you will be held i  responsible "for the quality of all the*  eggs you soil. If you sell any bad j  eggs they will be traced back to you!  and charged up double price. Any-!  one who uses dishonest methods with j  us will-be immediately dropped from i  the association. |  ---We have been paying and expect to ;  pay several cents a dozen over'the'  regular market price for case eggs.  We keep just enough to cover necessary expenses'and "to put a little into  a reserve fund. This reserve fund  belongs to you. - At the end of the  year this will be divided among tlie  members if so decided, according to  the amount of eggs they have sold,  or if so decided .will be kept as a reserve. A statement will be given to  each fanner at the close of the year  showing how many eggs he has sold.  ' As soon as you commence to sell  eggs with' us you belong to our association; you get an interest and a  vote in same.' You can say that the  business is yours and you can get  every cent that your eggs bring after  expenses of handling have been taken  out.

Shows  Remarkable  Progress  An epitome of the lteport of The  Great- West Life Assurance Company  for 1910 which appears upon another  page gives nn account of remarkable  progress and success.  It is no small distinction that a  company, established but 19 years,  should have reached n business in  force exceeding $50,000,000, and  should, for four-successive years, have  stood first among the companies .for  Canadian _business. It is equally  notable distinction that in - all the  rapid expansion occurring, the sound  principles of economy have been given -such prominence that no other  Canadian co'mpany has a lower expense rate than the Great-West, .and  in investments approaching $8,000,-  000, no loss of principal or interest  has yet occurred, while the interest  rate on investments stands nt the  highly satisfactory figure of over 7  per cent.  . It will be observed that over  $14,000,000 of business was written by  the Great-West in 1910, thus establishing a new Canadian record, nnd it  is a dear indication of thc value the  policyholders attach to their contracts  to' find that with the large business  was an equally noteworthy gain in  business in force of over $11,000,000.  The original view of the founders  of the Great-West Life hns been  abundantly endorsed by.' time���������that  an institution operating .in the  West, managed by those familiar with  western conditions, nnd investing its  funds in the profitable nvenues available in tho growing West���������could do  remarkably well for its policyholders.  . Such n report, ns thnt issued by the  compAuy in 1910 clenrly shows that  the'East hns joined with the West in  expressing npprocintion of n company  that in lower premiums, higher profits and liberal conditions can offer  to those needing protection such advantageous polioica.

Nelson wants a mining school.  Dredges will be used this summer to gather gold and platinum  from the Tulameen and;' Similkameen rivers.  ��������� In the near future the Boundary smelters will be using Nicola  coke. This coke shows low sulphur, and stands second for  strength of any coke in America.  The Nickel Plate mine near  Hedley, is paying dividends at tie  rate of 20 per cent, a year.  New coal mines are being opened  at St Albert, eight milesnorth of  Edmonton, Alberta. It is expected that within a year these mines  will be shipping 1,000 tons of  hard coal daily.  There  promises  to be a great  activity this summer, in the gold  j camps of the Omineca district.  The Mollie Hughes mine near  New Denver, is reported sold to  Spokane  capitalists  for $27,000.  A shaft  is to be sunk 1,000 feet  on  the property.    This property  has  an  ideal shipping   position  and for years has been one of the  specimen mines of the Slocan.  Spokane mining men are preparing a boom for the Slocan.  Last month supplies were taken  on toboggans to the coal mines,  35 miles from Telkwa.  H. E. Bodine is working placer  ground on Silver creek in the  Omineca district. His company  has 12 miles of ground leased.  Last'month he took in an Empire  drill along with four Indians,  four toboggans and 16 dogs.  Later in the season more supplies  will be packed iu from Hazelton.  Charles Huff has staked 12 coal l  claims, near the headquarters of-  the Naas river for Prince Rupert  speculators.  Papers have been signed by all  the interested parties, binding  three of the most important copper claims in the Highland valley, says the Ashcroft Journal  These comprise the Tam-  arac, Blue Jacket and  Topnotch  are owned respectively by Messrs. carloads of eastern coke arrived  Sanson, Ward, McGillivary, Nor- this week, and shipments will  ton, Cameron and Chataway and continue to arrive until the Cole  much development work has been man ovens are again ablaze.
