All heroes do not die in front of  the cannon's mouth. They are  found in every walk of life, as was  proved tho other night in Vernon  when the Okanagan hotel was  burned and a brave man went to  his death in order that a woman  might live. To die for others is  tho greatest sacrifice that a man  can make, and he who does it is a  prince among men.

The Vernou  News has tho following about  Archie :  ���������' But the hero of thu night was  Archie Hickling, one of the boarders, who gave his life in the ser-  vico of humanity.

'I'll gob her or I'll die,' he  exclaimed. Darting into-the hellish chaldron of Hume, smoke and  noxious giiae.1**, ho reached tho girl  and got her out through the window, whence she was speedily rescued ; but heroic Hickling sank  back into the pit of death and was  seen no moro alive.

GREENWOOD,   BRITISH  COLUMBIA.  Returns Home Full of Fear and  Takes to His Bed.  MRS. BOWSER HIS CONSOLER.  Prepares For the Worst, but the Situation Is Changed by the Family Doctor's Diagnosis���������Resumes Old Individuality.  [Copyright,   1909,   by Associated   Literary  Press.]  TIEN the Bowsers sat down  to breakfast the other morning Mrs. Bowser found herself without any appetite,  and, though she tried her best to conceal the fact, Mr. Bowser soon took  notice and said:  "No appetite, oh? ...Well, when I  heard that you had been sloshing  around Iu the rain yesterday I made  up my mind that you would pay for  It."  ' "But I didn't got my feet wot," she  protested.  "Of course you wouldn't own up to  It. No appetite this morning, and you  look as If you hadn't a week to live.  I've talked and talked, but what good  has it done'/"  "I have a little headache, but It will  be gone by noon."  "Gone nothing. I shall come home to  find yon In a raging fever and the  doctor and a trained nurse here. Even  If you !;ve through it you will make  me ?200 cost."  "Any one Is liable to have a headache now and then."  "Headache! Headache! Woman,  don't try to deceive yourself. This is  going   to   be   a   very   serious   matter.  him tea and toast, and though he protested his weakness and want of appetite lie nibbled and sipped, [le felt  better afterward, but he didn't admit  It. On tho contrary, after fetching a  long drawn groan he whispered:  "Why did this come to me, Mrs.  Bowser���������why come to me Instead of  another? "Why am I singled out for a  victim?"  "Because you waded In slush aud  water."  "But I���������I��������� Say, Mrs: Bowser, make  (hose doctors,understand that this is a  case of life or death and that they can  be sued for damages for delay."  Then he sighed. Thou he groaned.  Then he propped and unpropped.  Then he asked If typhoid patients  didn't lose all tho hair on their head,  and when Mrs. Bowser reminded him  thnt lie hadn't any to lose he was not  a bit comforted.  While waiting for three doctors aud  two nurses and other things Mr. Bowser prepared for the worst. For live  or ten minutes he reviewed his past  life and then said to Mrs. Bowser':  "1���������1 am sorry I spoke to you as I  did this morning."  "Oil, thai is all right. I kiiew you  didn't mean what you said."  "But I have said other mean things  to you ��������� hundreds of other mean  things."  "But you regretted them nt once,  and so there is nothing to forgive."  "Mrs. Bowser." he porsistoct with  i|iilvei*ing lip, "if I was to live my  life over again I'd be a better husband  to you. Yes, I would. I wouldn't be  n bulldozer and threaten divorce and  all that. I,wish i could live on. just  to show you how good 1 could be."  ITo was pelted and soothed and  quieted for ten minutes nnd had almost  fallen into a doze when he suddenly  sat up and exclaimed:  "There's the cook! I had forgotten  ���������lbout her!"  "Well, what of the cook?"  "I want to take her hand before 1  die and beg her pardon for finding  fault with her cooking, Call her up  right away."  "But she's gone out this evening for  an hour or two."  "And there's your mother! If you  can't reach her on the phone you must  telegraph. I have been a bad, bad  man to her. 1 want forgiveness. Do  you think sho can forgive me for calling her an old cat and n frump?"  "Yes, I think so. Mother is a very  tender hearted woman, and I think  sho will even put flowers on your  grave. Don't worry about mother.  I'll see that she Is here in time."  STAGECOACH   ROBBERS.  How   the    Express    Companies   Dealt  With   Old   Time  Highwaymen.  It was the treasure box of the Wells-  Fargo   company    which    transported  practically all the gold and silver from  the mining camps that was tlie special  object of the old time stagecoach highwayman.   A shrewd band of robbers  would not hold up a stage unless they  had good reason to think It carried a,  large shipment of gold, and they used  every  means to Dnd  out when these  shipments would be made.   The company, on the other hand, tried to deceive and trap them, and there was a  war of wits as well as weapons.  A favorite method of tbe company when  their stages had beon repeatedly robbed   by   some   band    whose   success,  showed they had inside information as  to the time of shipment was to let a  rumor leak out that on a certain day a  large amount of gold" dust would  be  secretly   sent   out   by   special   stage.

In case I find  you dying when I come home this  evening I will telegraph your mother."  His words sounded heartless, but as  the headache went off in a couple of  hours Mrs. Bowser did not treasure  them up. She rather expected he  would telephone during the day. but  as he didn't she stood on her dignity  and did not call him up. At his hour  for coming home she was feeling fine  and in good spirits, but as she saw  him drop off the car she knew that  something had gone wrong. His shoulders were all humped up, and his feet  shuffled as he walked. He had to drag  himself up the steps, and when she  opened the door for him she exclaimed:  "Why, Mr. Bowser, what on earth is  the matter?"  "Get me in on the lounge," he whispered in reply.  "You are 111! You are trembling all  over!"  "Send for the doctor!" he said as he  Btretehed but on the lounge.  "But tell me about it. When were  you taken? How do you feel?"  "I'm a dying man, Mrs. Bowser!  Was taken With a chill two hours ago.  I'm first hot and then cold all over. I  expected to die in the street car."  Mrs. Bowser looked at his tongue  and felt of his pulse and was quite  Bure that he had only taken cold.  "Did you get your feet Wet yesterday?" she asked as she chaffed his  hands with alcohol.  "I-I guess I did."  "Not a doubt of It I've talked, but  what good has It done? You must  have waded in slush and water up to  rour neck."  Comforts Sick One.

"Well, it may be nothing more than  n very serious case of typhoid fever,  but of course we shall hnve to have a  trained nurse and the doctor coming  three times a day."  "Get tho doctor here!" groaned Mr.  Bowser. . "Get him here nt once!

How  many other things  Mr.   Bowser   would   have   brought   up   before  gasping his Inst cannot be told, as the  doorbell rang and Mrs. Bowser admitted the family doctor.   She may have  given him the wiuk as she bustled in  or' she may not.    Be that as it may,  he advanced to Mr. Bowser, felt of his  pulse and  looked at his  tongue and  then said:  "Come, Bowser, get out of this."  "W-what do you mean?"  "Don't play the booby.   Nothing ails  you that a dose of physic won't cure."  "And I'm not going to die?"  "Die  your  grandmother!     You   are  able to go downstairs and shovel over  a ton of coal this very minute."  Ono would have thought, in consideration of his narrow escape from  the grave, that Mr. Bowser would  have remained humble for at least half  an hour, but he didn't. No sooner had  the door closed on the doctor than he  rose up and said:  "Now, Mrs. Bowser, you can see the  difference between a resolute man and  a namby pamby woman. You would  have died half an hour ago, while I  am feeling as well as I ever did in my  life. Be mighty careful how you upset this house again!"        Al. QUAD.  His  Task  of Selecting  "Good  Sellers" \  Is a  Hard One.  Whoever lias had difficulty In decid-!  ing which of two or more articles ou ''  a  counter  he   will  purchase  may  be [  able to appreciate the task which con- i  fronts the buyer of a stock of mer- !  chandise,  says  a   writer  in   Collier's, j  Tho numbers of varieties offered for  selection arc almost beyond belief.   In  tho toy department of a large wholesale house the following figures were  obtained in regard to the goods actually being shown at one time in the sam-.  pie rooms:  Magic lanterns. 250 varieties; boats,  300 varieties; horns, 1,000 varieties;  Christmas tree ornaments, 2,000 varieties; dolls, 12,000 varieties.  In gathering this assortment of  Christmas tree ornaments it was necessary to deal with 7f>0 manufacturers throughout Europe, and the selection of 2,000 samples represents only  a fraction of the samples submitted  by manufacturers.  When it is considered that almost  every person uses dishes at three meals  a day and that the prices of plates  may range from a few cents each to  $1,000 or more a set, it is not surprising to learn that tho same wholesaler  would display iu his sample rooms  over 230,000 varieties of articles in  china.  The buyer has within such ranges of  variety opportunity to "make or break"  the patronage of a store by the wisdom he uses in making his selections.  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  KEEPING CHILDREN WELL.

Minard's  cians.  Liniment  used  by  Physi  His Fearful Punishment by a Prlrnitiv������  Mexican Tribe.  Speaking of primitive law among  the Mexican Indians brings to mind a  curious case that was told me some  years ago in the state of Oaxaea by an  old Zapoteca chief who had become a  convert to Christianity.  He said that a long while ago. an  American botanist was traveling  through the mountains of Oaxaea  studying the rare and beautiful flora  of that region. He had with hlra a  mozo from another part of the country.  He carried several gold pieces sewed  in the lining of his jacket. The mozo  became aware of that fact, and one  day when the botanist got down on his  knees to drink at a little spring the  mozo cut his head off with a machete,  took the gold pieces and fled to the  higher sierras.  Not long after the body was found  by some Zapoteca Indians who had  seen the botanist in former days  studying the flowers aud plants near  their village. They knew that he was  a harmless and good man because he  loved flowers. All Mexican Indians  love flowers. So they took tho body to  the chief and told him what they had  seen and found. "What!" he said.  "Shall the kind stranger with the  white face who loved flowers nnd  sought not our goods nor insulted our  ^vomen come to such.a dog's death  among us and not be avenged?"  He then dispatched four swift Indian runners in different directions  with orders not to return without the  murderer. After a week's time they  returned bearing the malefactor bound  in their midst. A council of old men  was called, and the case was examined. The guilt of the mozo was proved, as he still had with him the strange  pieces of gold.    ""  Then the old chief gave the sentence. It was speedily performed.  They led the trembling murderer to  the center of the little plaza. Thpre  four green stakes were driven in the  ground. The murderer was stripped  naked and stretched by the wrists and  feet in the air among the four stakes,  to which he was lashed. Then the Indians made a great heap of unslaked  lime under the wretched man's body,  and when the heap touched his breast  and sides they poured water over It  until the scalding stenm of the burning lime had cooked all the flesh from  the bones. Then they took the bones  and threw them into a hole on the  mountain side.  And so was' the stain of the murdered man's blood covered and vengeance was wrought by the Indians in  behalf of "the white stranger who was  good and loved flowers."  Very Grand Opera.  During the grand opera season, Co-  vent Garden, London, is the most expensive theatre in the world. There  is, of course; the half-crown gallery,  but the rest of the.house is charged  for at rates that are clearly intended  for tlie very rich, especially as boxes  and seats are let for the entire season.  A box at Covent Garden costs from  $1,N0 to $2,500 for the season, the  price varying according to the number of performances per week it ia  taken for.- For a single, night the  charge is $42 to $12.50, but these are  practically unprocurable on the best  nights of the season. It is the custom for the leaders of society to book  up all the boxes, and most of the  stalls, for the whole of the period  during which opera is being performed, and when they are not able to be  there they lend their boxes to their  poorer relations.

Wealth  Found  In the  Walls of Mexican Adobe Houses.  There are many remarkable towns  In Mexico, but none - more Interesting than Guanajuato, "the hill of the  frog."

When it became known that the old  adobe buildings would be torn down  pieces taken at random were assayed  It.was found that because of the old  process, which left much gold and sll-.  ver. they assayed from $���������'* to $24 a ton.

"Pillows are little more than a fad  and a rather harmful one at thnt."  said a Germantown doctor. "They  should, indeed, only be used by those  who sleep on their sidps, as they nre  really injurious to others. When you  sleep on your side your shoulder prevents your, head from lying level on  the bed, and pillows are useful to  raise the head to this level.  "The natural and most healthful position for the ordinary person In sleeping is for one's head to be kept perfectly even, just as it would be standing up. Now, for tbe one who lies on  his back while sleeping no pillow is  needed to keep the head in this position, nnd yet 99 per .cent of the persons who sleep on their backs use pillows, while those who sleep on their  sides use far more pillow than is necessary.  "People' get used to having their  heads and shoulders propped high up  and imagine They could not sleep any  other way; but, as a matter of fact, if  they would try Weeping with little or  no pillow they would not only find that  they would feel better In the morning,  but also would actually bo more comfortable in bed and sleep much sound,  er thoughout the night."

It is stated in Mr. and Mrs. PenneH's  "Life of James MacNeill Whistler" iu  that part which relates to his brief  West Point career that the great  American painter was not "soldierly in  appearance, bearing or habit." Whistler's horsemanship is said to have  been hardly better than his scholarship. According to General Webb, it  was not wholly unusual for him at  cavalry drill to go sliding over his  horse's head. On such occasions Major Sackett, then in command, would  call out:  "Mr. Whistler, aren't you a little  ahead of the squad?"     s  According to Whistler's version to  the Penuells, Major Sackett's remark  was:  "Mr. Whistler, I am pleased to see  you for once at the head of your  class."

The picture was wonderfully fascinating to the little girl, and when her  big sister came from college in the  evening she ran and got the book,  turned to tbe picture and said:  "Sister, see!

It is somewhat curious that so useful an Invention as the visiting card  should have been uuknown to society  until comparatively recent times. Yet  150 years ago the carte de vislte did  not exist. The belles of the seventeenth century used nothing in the  shape of a name card, or "ticket,"  as It was afterward called. Invitations to routs and drums as well as  names and addresses were written  across the backs of playing cards,  which in those days were made with  a -white reverse and innocent of the  intricate pattern familiar to us in  modern times.  Mary Wortley MoDtagu, a lady of  ton, says the Connoisseur, would be  apt to use a red playing card���������a queen  of hearts���������for ordinary social purposes,  while an amorous beau inscribed his  name and the most tender of inquiries  on the back of a jack of spades.

I was a great sufferer  from   indigestion,   whieli   was   often  accompanied by naausea,   sick   headache and backache.    As a result my  complexion was very bad and I had  black rings under tlie eyes.   I took a  great deal of doctor's  medicine,  but  it never did  more than give mc the  most temporary relief.   About a year  ago I  was advised to give Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills a trial.    Before  I  had taken a couple of boxes I found  relief,  and by  thc time I  had  used  a  half  dozen  boxes  I  found  myself  feeling like a new woman,    with    a  good appetite, good digestion, and a  clear complexion.   I can strongly recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for  this trouble   and   advise  similar   suf-  ferers to lose no time ih taking them."

By those who ought  to know it Is said to be typical of a  singular simplicity of mind which is  also said to be peculiar to the Russia us.  A follower of Tolstoy was called on  for military service. He presented  himself to the army officers, as required, and explained that he could not  serve because of his beliefs.  "Ah," said the officer in charge politely, "but you understand that this  means prison?"  "Of course."  "You will be sent," continued the officer, "to the Caucasus," naming a  prison of dreadful repute. "The guard  will have to start at once with you."  He turned to several other officers  and discussed the matter of the guard  for a few minutes. Then he had a  happy thought.  "Why send a guard at all?" he said  "You," turning to the young man���������"you  can find your way there alone, can't  you?"  "Yes."  "Well, then, that saves a lot of trouble," exclaimed the officers, delighted  So they wrote him a careful letter of  introduction to the governor of the  prison, explaining'that the bearer was  to be locked up as soon as he arrived  in a most unpleasant cell.  "That's all right," they said In great  satisfaction. "We hope your journey  won't be too tiresome." And they parted with great cordiality.  Tbe young man did as he was told  aud Is now in prison.

Radium and Vaccine.  An Italian physician who exposed  fresh vaccine virus to the emanations  of radium for varying periods and  then made use of it in vaccinating  children found that there was no effect" on the action of the virus produced by the exposure to the rays,  but that the pustules produced by the  virus were entirely free from any septic suppuration. There was no inflammatory area and no fever. He  finds that this is an eflieieut method  of purifying vaccine virus, but on account of the expense of radium not  one that can be commonly followed.���������  II I'olicllnico.

Shop, Greenwood,  The brown man has appeared  among the fruit trees of Kock  Creek, judging from the following  letter fiom that place :  Editor Lkdok : S. Brew, manager for the Kettle Kiver Fruit Co.,-  is tomorrow bringing into llock  Creek two Japanese to work on  the company's lands, and he intends to bring in a Jap foreman on  September 1st. Cannot something  be done to prevent this? Repeated  requests have been made to Mr.  Brew to abstain from doing this,  but he absolutely declines to listen  to them.  It is the more difficult to deal  with a case like this, inasmuch as  llock Creek is not a town, nor has  it a railway station, and the working men are all scattered about on  ranches, and have therefore no  chance to cooperate and drive these  pests out.  Three Japs this year will iu all  probability mean ten next year,  and in two years time white labor  will almost certainly be on a par  with that of Vernon, where $20 a  month is good pay !  Will you give prominence to  this subject in your leader and do  something to deal with a subject  which threatens to become very  serious indeed in the valley. Yours  disgustedly,        A White Max.  [We cannot see much that can  be done in this matter' The Dominion government permits these  browu wage-breakers to enter Canada, and behind that government  stands the law and military to  protect them from violence. To  attempt to drive them out by force  is an invitation to go to jail or be  shot to pieces by uniformed men  who are sworn to uphold the Hag.  In unity t!ie white man might obtain a victory with his vote, but a  resort to bullets means that he  would havo to disrupt the empire  in order to be victorious. The  abolition of the Jap from this  broad Dominion can onty be obtained at the polls, and even then  for "imperial reasons" the result  might not be entirely satisfactory.  If the Japs become too numerous  in this piovince the finale may be  secession or revolution, and it is  a question that our politicians  should strive their utmost to solve.  The white working man must not  be driven from his own land  by the little brownies from sunny  Japan.���������Eu.]  The early riser catches tlie Tom  Collin's.
