With the intention of immediately working their rich placer deposits in the; bed of the Fraser  river, the Virginia Dredging company, a Bellingham corporation, is  making extensive preparations to  put their 875,000 dredger in working order. ���������MThe dredger turned  turtle--last^Koveinbcr daring-- a"  freshet on its anchorage ground at  Yale. It was carried down the  stream eight miles, and is now  three miles above Hope, securely  fastened, but upside down.  It was a' strange stroke of fate  that upturned the dredger. - The  Bellingham men had purchased  the property in September and  their ground was being' worked  with great profit when the winter  freshet'came, the headline broke,  tho "works", drifted off, water in  some way leaked into one of the  pontoons, and the co.-tly accident  occurred.

The dredger was built two years  ago by a New England company  known as the Yal* Dredging Syndicate. It, is constructed on pontoons, is 105 feet long and 34 feet  beam. The machine Iris seven  carloads of machinery and the  woodwork contains 180,000 feet of  lumber. The capacity of the  dredge is 240 yards of gravel in  twenty-four hour*-;.

Douglas, Alaska, has just  emerged from a three months'  water famine which was caused by  a tight freeze-up early.in January  when the $500,000 water plant ol  the -Treadwell company went out  of business owing to the excessive  cold weather.  One of the amusing features of  the famine was tho formation of a  club of Douglas businessmen which  instituted a system of fines for the  extravagant use of water. For  taking a drink of water a member  was fined 12-J cents; for washing  his hands aud face, two bits ; for  washing his feet, four bits ; and  for taking a bath he was sentenced  to banishmont from the island. It  is stated that thero was not a fine  imposed during, the entire three  months the famine lasted.

Feelings Torn Up by Sufferings ol  a Woman Who "Threw a Fit."  NO AID FROM  BETTER HALF.  In Proffering Relief the Old Philosopher Gets a Sudden Shock and Returns Home to Faint For the First  Time.  [Copyright, 1909, by T. C. McClure.J  [HERE was a grim look on Mr.  Bowser's face as he came home  from the otlice, and, like a  good wife and thinking something might have gone wrong at the  otlice, Mrs. Bowser chatted away and  pretended not to notice it. At the dinner table he was morose and sullen,-  answering only in monosyllables, and  she drew a long breath as the meal  was ended and braced herself for the  conllict to come. When a husband  kisses Ids wife good by and calls her  ���������loario on leaving home In the morning  and comes home ten hours later like  an old hear that has tumbled out of a  iree it is a matter for investigation.  Mrs. Bowser didn't delay on reaching the silting room, but turned and  linked:  "Well, what great and unforgivable  crime have I committed now?"  -Woman, have 1 the privilege of addressing a few words to you?" stiffly  inquired old bruin. r  ������������������Certainly."  "Then let me say that as I got off  the car at lhe corner I saw a woman  SHB THREW UP HEK ARSIS AND FELL DOWN.  fall dead on the sidewalk. She was  poorly dressed, and oue look at her  pale, sad face told the whole story.  .She died.of starvation and exposure.  I don't suppose she had liad a mouthful to eat for four or five days. She  was just about to address me, having  read kindliness and pity in my face,  when she threw up her hands and  sunk down."  ���������'Poor woman!'' sighed Mrs. Bowser.  ���������'Yes, poor woman, but I want to  know if she had been here at the door  asking for food and if you turned her  a way."  "There was one here about an hour  ago. It might have been thc one you  saw at the corner."  "And you slammed the door in her  face and threatened her with the police."'  "She had been drinking. I could  smell liquor on her breath. And she  didn't ask for food, but for money. I  told her I had none for Uev."  "And drove her to her death! Woman, you must have a heart like a  winter's cobblestone! Turned a starving, despondent woman away .to her  death!"  "But I had no money," protested  'Mrs. Bowser. "I couldn't have scratched up as much as a dime in the house.  I have told you over and over that if  you want me to give money to 'these  vagrants you must leave some change  . with me."  Hard Hearted Mrs. Bowser.  "And that is only half my story,"  said Mr. Bowser as he ignored the  change question. "As I reached the  gate a man was just coming out. lie  had been to the basement door to ask  for food. He had been turned away,  the same as the woman. The look of  despair on his face will haunt mo to  my dying day. Did the cook tell you  anything about it?"  ���������'Yes. She called me down. It was a  li'iimp who wanted old clothes. I had  none for him. He didn't say a word  about food. 1 don't know why his face  should have worn a look of despair,  lie looked fairly comfortable and well  fed. As T had no old clothes for him,  lie was turned away."  "Xo old clothes! Why, woman, I  have at least three old suits around  the house."  "But you have told me not to give  any of your garments away unless  you were here,"You said that the follows often took them to the secondhand stores and sold them for u trifle."  "Never, never, never! I have nlwuys  told you to relieve distress at once.  You   have   murdered   a   woman  nnd  driven a man to dcsperatlon.'andheiiv- j  en will surely punish you for it." j  "Well, I'll take all future comers In \  to board and clothe."  "It is no use to talk to you," said  Mr. Bowser ns ho turned nwny. "Nature planted a chunk of Ice In your  ��������� breast Instead of a. heart, and It can't  be chnnged. The only thing I can do  in this case Is to go to thc drug store  lind And out nil I can nbout the poor  dend womnn and see thnt sho nt least  has n decent burial. If she has left  jny children beblnil I will rescue them  ���������'roni starvation,"  Mrs. Bowser had nothing to say to  this, though n queer look passed between her mid thc family cat, and ten  minutes later the druggist was being  questioned. Yes, he knew tho wo-  iniin by nnme, and he knew where she  lived. Her body hnd gone home. He  couldn't sny ns to the children. He  agreed that It was a very sad thing,  und he thought It very commendable  of Mr. Bowser to bo Interested. He  said nil this nnd considerably more,  but there wns it half smile on his face  ns he said It. When he asked Mr.  Bowser If Airs. Bowser was In aym-  pathy with his mission, and was answered that sho didn't care a rap If  half the towu died of hunger that half  smile turned into a grim thnt irrlliiied  aud annoyed.  Mr, Bowser had only a few blocks to  walk. He looked for a crowd around  i the house, but no wails smote his  I ear. The door was opened to him by  a woman weighing 200 pounds and of  liberal breadth of body and arms like  a blacksmith, and he felt n bit abashed  as he put the inquiry:  "Wasn woman brought here dend  about an hour ago?"

Cured Through the Timely Use  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  There i= no medicine can equal Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for stomach troubles. These Pills arc not an artificial  appetizer nor a stimulant. They act  in nature's own way by making rich,  red blood. This new blood gives vigor  to all the' organs. When it Hows  through (he tiny veins in the stomach  it stimulate.** them and creates that  craving which people call "appetite."  Then when the appetite is satisfied  with food the blood gives I lie stomach  strength to digest it. The nourishment is absorbed by tlm blood, and  carried to everv organ in the hotly.  That, is how Di\ Williams' I'ink'Pills  cure stomach troubles and all blood  diseases. That is how thoy give health  and strength to weak, worn-out psoplc.  Mr.  H.  Thomas Curry.

Later as those symptoms  developed    my  tongue    was    heavily'  coated, especially in the morning, and  I felt pnrticuliirlv dull.    My appetite:  began  to  dwindle,  and  even  a   light j  meal left ine with a sense of having-  eaten  too much.    As  L grew worse  I j  :de barely enough to sustain my body;  but still  experienced  the  most acute i  pains.   A wretched languor came over'  nie which   1  could not throw off.

The  remedies given  me by  my doctor,  as well as many j  others,  failed  to restore me, or oven j  (o relieve me.    I was in this very un-i  happy state for almost a year when I {  read  in a newspaper one day of the}  cure of a case similar to mine through j  the use of Dr. Williams'   Pink  Pills.

Mrs. Frederick Bryant, of 169 Railway Avenue, Stratford, Ont., -'says :���������  ,   '.T scalded my foot' while preparing  /   supper.   Next day .the skin, came oft'  and my foot was in .a serious condition.    I could not wenr my shoe and  had to lily up for nine weeks.    Dur-  '   ing this time J used dozens of salves  but none did any"good,   in fact the  wound developed into a running sore.  -   I got no rest day or night   from the  pain!   At this point a supply of Zani-  Buk was obtained and a few applications had  immediate effect in soothing the pain and irritation:'   A small  supply proved sufficient to heal the  scald, although I had;spent dollars in  other-remedies. - New "skin has now  formed nicely over the open sore.    '  "Zam-Buk  is  the    most, wonderful  ..   and effective'remedy I   "Havo    used,  and I advise others to use it.'"  Zam-Buk is equally effective in curing burns'. - Mr. Geo.

Zam-Buk- seenied to take the  pain away like magic. It is a splendid balm to keep handy, its healing  powers being simply marvellous."  There is nothing to equal Zam-Buk  ns a family balm.

Comfort for the Dyspeptic���������There is  no ailment so harassing and exhausting us dyspepsia, which arises, from  defective action of tlie stomach and  liver, and the victim of it is .to be  pitied. -Yet he can find ready relief  in Parmelee's Vegetable Pills, a preparation that has established itself by  years of effective use. There are  pills that are widely advertised as'the  .greatest ever compounded, but not  .one-'of them can rank*, in-value with  Parmelee's.       .     ������ . ~   _  How  to   Select  the' Most  Economical  Len0ths, -  In selecting. tablecloths it Js more  satisfactory to get the seventy-two  inch width, which-gives'a gen'erous  frill' of sixteen Inches or so at the  sides, which. dresses a table better  than the narrower widths. Two and  one-half yards Is a very good measure  for general use, a very convenient size  for a,small company requiring nn extra leaf. Three and one-half yards are  required for an extended .tabic, to  drape over the ends and correspond  with the sides.  In hemming tablecloths n double  hemstitch nbove an inch and a' half  wide'hem makes a very fine finish.  The ends must be cut by the thread to  make the-hem true. With napkins to  correspond and finished in the same  way this makes a very fine table set  If the linen is fine nnd heavy, with a  pretty pattern. If the hemstitch is  thought to be too elaborate, the-so  called ��������� French hem ot tlie ends does  very nicely. Turning a half inch hem  neatly and folding back, sew a fine  over and over stitch.  The care of table linen Is of greal  Importance If one would have tho table arrayed nt Its best. There niust  be a pure white cloth without blemish  or"wrInklo, wllh sniiny finish and with  as few folds ns possible. A very good  wny to wash napkins nnd tablecloths  for this effect Is 'to first pour slowly a  stream of boiling water over stains  and then let them soak In a good suds  ���������nindu with white laundry soap for nn  hour, then lightly rub out nnd just  scald in clear soft water, rinse in n  light bluing water and during the  whole process wring by hand Instead  of by, wringer to avoid the wrinkles  thnt nre so hard to press out. Do not  starch; stretch evenly and hang  straight on the line to dry.  In ironing the-linen must bo evenly  nnd very well dampened. Fold tbe  tablecloth from side to side just once  and press dry from end to end on both  sides. This will give the satin finish.  Fold together sidewise once more and  press both sides carefully, then fold  .lengthwise as little as possible to lay  In your sideboard drawer for linen  To avoid the least folds some get  boards, such as are used for dress  goods, and wind their long tablecloths  smoothly over them, giving them the  appearance of new linen, says the  Housekeeper.

Charmingly dainty lamp shades may  be made at small expense if a girl has  any knowledge of working with water  colors. Even with tracing paper and  a pencil decidedly pretty Japanese effects may be secured. For a foundation wire frames of various shapes can  be purchased, but if stiff paper is lo  be used as a covering the simple,  straight shades are best. When covering either frame, at the top should  be tacked a piece of asbestus that is  at least two Inches deep. This will entirely prevent the paper from burning.  If the paper" is to be painted the  easiest method will be to cut a pattern  and lay this on rough white water  color paper. When the exact size has  been determined tlie stiff paper should  be neatly pasted at (he two edges and  held In place over the frame until it  has "set:" White cotton thread and  a few stitches are the easiest and firmest way of attaching it to the frame  at top and bottom.  This done, the background is ready  for decoration. What this shall be depends upon the individual skill or desire. Medallions, heads set Into little  backgrounds of color and framed with  fine lines of gilt and silver, are always  charming. The frame effect may be  joined by tying bowknots together at  the top, so that little medallions seem  to be suspended by ribbons of gbia or  a color. Large birds, such as storks,  are most decorative and when done in  a flight are not difficult. Flowers and  rural scenes of various kinds may be  used.  It is sometimes possible to find beautiful photographs, and with these, unmounted, novel effects can be made.  They may be placed on the paper in a  line or irregularly, cutting out the  background. This renders the pictures  transparent when the light is waning.  They should be neatly pasted on, first  trimming the paper edge in scallops or  points to make a finished frame. If  one does not wish to do this, a design  may be done with a paint brush in  such manner as to simulate a frame.  One who cannot use brushes will find  that gilt and silver headings in the  fancy paper departments are very pretty and not hard to put on. These  "frame effects" may become most elaborate by pasting on different decorations.  ETIQUETTE.

On a hot, sultry night in July, however (for the play enjoyed an exceptionally long run). Smut became bored,  thinking, no doubt, that the play had  had its day and that it was now the  dog's turn. He advanced quite quietly  to the center of the stage with nn almost managerial sense of his own importance, sat down in a dignified manner on his haunches and yawned in  full view of the audience with the sublime indifference of a dramatic critic.  The audience were naturally amused.  Encouraged by the success of his un- j  conscious efforts, Smut went from bad  to worse by'snapping up a passing fly, <  which he swallowed with the enjoy- j  ment of a gourmet, inevitably spoiling i  the quiet scene on which we were en- j  gaged. ��������� ',  This terminated his engagement as ,  an actor.���������John Hare in Strand Mag-'  azine.          -   : .1  Treasury Note Plates.

The Loss of Time and Money Involved  In This Scientific Tragedy.  Probably few persons took much Interest in the announcement that a flaw  had'been discovered In the great 100  inch lens for the Mount:Wilson reflecting telescope. To scientific men this  was,no less than a tragedy, since it  means an expense of $50,000 and a do-  lay of a year, with the possibility that  the second effort will be no more successful.  It is' doubtful if many persons ever  saw a reflecting telescope.   When the  term telescope is used  we naturally  think of an instrument with n long  "barrel" and lenses at each end. These  are the most common, but are not in  many cases  the . most  useful.    They  have defects which cannot be remedied  in our present state of knowledge, aud  they have limitations put upon them  by nature whieli perhaps rany never be  ' overcome. But the^reflectlng telescope,  1 consisting of a single lens placed hori-  1 zontally and without any "barrel," is  [ In many respects the more useful in-  ' strument for astronomers, although it  : also has Its drawbacks.  J    In tills instrument the light fulls dl-  ' rectly on the lens nnd is reflected back  ! to n focal point, which is distant from  ! the lens according to its diameter.   It  1 is open to the objection that the light  '��������� reflected back Interferes with the fall-  } ing rays, but Ingenuity lias overcome  i much of the disadvantage, The largest  I effective instrument of this sort is at  I the l'erkes observatory, but the one  planned  for Mount   Wilson  is to be  | more than  twice as Inrge and  much  j larger than that of Ixird ftosse, which  ' was so famous fifty years ago.  j    The difficulty in constructing a ions  more than eight feet in diameter arises  from the fact that the glass must be  absolutely flawless, or as near so as  human skill can  make it  such a lens is a long, /'xpensive and  difficult process, and many failures inevitably    result    before    success   is  achieved even for small lenses.   If the  ' 100 inch lens is finally turned out normally perfect,  we shall  have an ln-  , strument which  will  greatly add to  ��������� our knowledge of the universe about  us.   It is, an interesting fact In this  ! connection thnt for several generations  ' the   best   glass   has   been,  made   in  : France, but the best 'workmanship In  ' grinding the  lenses  is done  in   this  ' country.

Walter Damrosch, leader of the New  York Symphony orchestra,' is responsible for the new theory ��������� that "high  grade music in the family" will ward  off danger of a dismal divorce decree.  Mr. Damrosch has read, as has every  one else, .the census reports showing  thnt one out of every twelve marriages  .ends in the divorce court. And as a  remedy the orchestra lender proposes  not a uniform marriage law, the elimination of the nllinlly problem or an allowance to limit a wife's possible extravagance, but simply music.  "The little love god would stny longer If he were nourished on some good  music ns well as on the price of bacon  nnd eggs," says Mr. Damrosch.  lie not only maintains that music  has charms to soother but the rest of it..  He adds that It furnishes n peaceful  topic of con versa tion, leads the harried thoughts of husband and wife to-  wnrd high ideals (as opposed to the  aforementioned price of ' bacon and  eggs) and keeps the fire of family affection burning brightly and warmly  on the domestic hearthstone.  Continuing, Mr. Damrosch explains:  "There is more domestic discord in  thc American home (ban in that of  any other country on lhe globe, and I*  believe it is because there is not  enough cultivation of the finer things  of life. There is little family music  or art of any kind.' aiid"there is small  wonder that elements of discord enter  when there is nothing more diverting  than calculation on the cost of* butter,  eggs nnd bacon."  meets you half-way���������does  all your work in' half the  time and at half the cost of  other soaps. y ". ���������.-'".'-.

Jon Mai-tin is going it strong in  England and has declared himself.  He wants women to vote, free trade  aud the abolition of. colonial preference aud the House of Lords.  Joe has cut out enough work to  last him several lifetimes, but it is  almost certain that he will wander back again to Canada.  Stroller writing in the White-  horse Star says that during the  coming twelve months ho will do  all in his power to advance the  price of copper and lower the price  of whiskey. He also remarks that  automobiles are cheaper in White-  horse than they were five years  ago, but diinks remain  the same.  They have total prohibition in  Prince Edward Island and the jails  are empty. In B. C. we have  plenty of booze a"d even the jails  aro full. The abuse of liquor causes  a great deal of trouble but so does  the abuse of anything. Many a  man whowould not even smell a  glass of booze dies from too much  food, while all over the land you  can see wrecks from the abuse of  tea, coffee and tobacco. Be moderate in all things, but you will  appreciate life much more if you  cut out narcotics, sedatives, and  stimulants of all kinds.  A hush fire breaks out in the  Boundary and intrudes upon the  C. P. K. land. Immediately the  officials of the company become active by invoking the aid of the  police to find the man who set'out  the fire. All of which may be perfectly proper, for the country mupt  be protected from the acts of careless people. But on the other  hand the C. P. E. has burned up  more timber by the sparks from  its locemotives than any other  cause, and 3-et we havo never heard  of the police being called out to  arrest the locomotives.  A group of copper-gold claims  upon Moresby island, - owned by  Hon. Thomas Taylor and others,  has been bonded to Duluth capitalists for ������400,000.  The Middle8bqro coal mines are  shipping 3,000 tons a week.  The coal miners at the Middlos-  boro colliery in the Nicola struck  last Thursday, The - union claims  that the company has not kept faith  with them, and the men claim that  trumped up charges are brought-  against those who exercise their  right to free speech..  A man in East Kootenay hai invented a flying machine that will  go from Cranbrook. to Vancouver  in .10 minutes, It is expected to  put the C. P. R. out of business.  Jim Hill has undertaken ' to  transport one million bales of cotton from Alabama to Japan. This  Is enough of cotton to fill a train  165 miles long.  The money has been raised to  build an electric railway from  Nighthawk to a point on the Columbia river, 75 miles away.  Harry Fairall of Victoria has  started a soda water factory in  Chilliwack.  Mat Vallance is running a daily  stage between Chilliwack and  Agassiz.  Quartz mining will yet be tho salvation of Dawson and make that  camp greater than it was a decade  ago.  T. Caruey, G. West an.l J. Mc-  Cale are cruising timber in the  upper Fraser country.  Age glides steadily on aud beguiles us as it flies.  nelson, B. 0.  GEO. I\  WK-LLS, Proprietor.  First-class in everything.

It is to be hopa I that the evangelists succeed, in saving Greenwood. "  A cow has never,yet been able  to successfully 'compete with a  locomotive.       r.  Tub Star says that the flour market m Princeton is unchanged but  restless.  If you like the policy of a newspaper dig up something besides air  for its support. :.  Cai-ital id the product of labor.  Without labor capital would never  have been born*.-  All towns,-have their quiet  periods, and often the quietest day  is just before the boom.  Theke will be prosperous times  when tho railroad taps the West  Fork of the Kettle river.  If copper would rise in price  with wheat . the people in the  Boundary would not whisper a protest. ���������'���������  Sandy, Wm.. Greenwood, iniiu.-r.  Sandy, Robcrl, Greenwood, miner.

Fi ve carloads of sane and dressed  up Dotikhohors came to Waterloo  the other day. They have a settlement at that point upeu thu Columbia river.  The copper market is slowly recovering and within a few months  it looks as though we would have  a famine in the red metal and a  boom in prices. ���������������������������  The deepest gold mine in .tho  world is uot at Sheep creek. It is  the Victoria Quartz at Bendigo in  Australia. The shaft is down -1,525  feet, almost a mile.  John W. Timy t.itl b.ouuie  e iitor of a daily paper in Curdova,  Alaska. Joan is one of the bust  known editors iu the uorth and  The Victoria Times has a good  cartoon of Joe Martin. He is  standing on the banks of the Avon  dressed in shoit pants. Nearby is  a bust of Shakespeare. -Back of  the bust is a native leaning on a  fence and saying to himself: "Wat  be rec doin' of 'ere. Mebbe *ee be  thinkin' o' t-akin' 'is last plunge."  Joe is whispering to himself the  following : " The Avon, eh ! And  they call that a water course! Why,  when I was a premier, Simmie and  I used to speed the provincial  police launch up and down the  Gorge at Victoria on the Queen's  Birthday���������ah ! them was the happy  days 1"  TnE Eye* Opener may bo moved  from Calgary to Toronto.    We do  not   think that the move would  be a successful one or that Bob  Edwards could exist in  the cold  puritanical atmosphere of the Holy  City.    Too far from Banff.    Texas  Siftings was moved  from tho Lone  Star state to New   York,  and became a failure.    The  Rural New  Yorker   abandoned   Rochester   to  lose itself in  Gotham.    So don't  go Bob to the cent belt.    You and  your paper belong in tho West,  where the blizzard blows through  your   whiskers,  and  the bucking  broncho breaks the ozone with its  heels.    In Toronto you would fade  away and die, Bob, like some birds  do when put in a cage, besides society is frozen bo hard  iu  Toronto  that you could not melt an inch of  it unless you go to Sunday school  and pray out loud in church.   Stay  with  the town you made famous  and some day they will erect a  monument  over   your   flower-be-  dei'ked grave.  The White House Cafe in Nel-  son is next to the postoffice, right  in the heart of the city and is  noted for its .excellent coffee and  shrot orders. Visitors to tho city  should not fail to drop in and have  a meal cooked by white labor.
