THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  A Man  Who Was Taken  For a Burglar  By ANNA  B. CLARK  Copyright, 1910. by American Press  Association.  Jack Mei'ton arrived In Chicago at  5 o'clock oil a rainy afternoon. His  train for tlie '���������west left at 9, and he  was prompted to spend the intervening hours with his cousin. Taking a  cab, ho was driven to the house.  "No. U32. There she Is, th-.* uext one  to this. I might have recognized the  bronze flowerpots on the balcony anyway. Now for a surprise." He ran  lightly up (lie steps of is'o. 232, pulied  out a latchkey he mid long carried and  inserted It in lhe lock.  The key lilted easily, aud the door  swung'open, revenmig a long expanse  of cool (lurk hall in summer 'attire of  Huen coverings.   There was not a soul  hi sight.    The doors that he remembered   led   to drawing  rooms,  library  and sitting room were tightly closed.  At this hour Uncle Krai mid  Peter  .���������.would . probably* have  returned   from  the olllee and, us was their dally custom, would  be grilling over lhe evening papers In'the library la the glare  -of   strong   electric., lights   Instead   of  spinning along the lake front watching the sunset after the strenuous day  downtown.    The Mortons were money  grubbers, anyway,  with but little eye  for beauty.    Nevertheless money grubbing had not affected  Ihe warmth of  their big hearts, and this was unusual  Jack   strode  down   the   hall,  softly  turned   the knob of the library  door  and   entered-to   lind   himself  In   the  mellow,   subdued   light  of  a  solitary  lamp on the writing desk.   Out of the  surrounding shadows a darker shape  flitted and then came forward, revealing the straight, slim figure of a girl in  a  soft  black gown,   with a string of  pearls  around   her   white   throat  and  dusky   masses   of   hair   framing   the  loveliest  face .lack   had  ever seen���������a  face lighted hy glorious hazel eyes and  tinted with exquisite color.  The hazel eyes met .lack's fearlessly,  and he was conscious of a quick movement of her right hand; then he found  himself looking Into tbe 'menacing bar  re! of a small revolver.  "What do you waut here?" asked,the  girl quietly.  ':;������������������'.   Forgetful of his clandestine entrance.  Mr. Merton drew" himself up proudly  "Rather  an   original   method  of  wel  m coming a guest." he said lightly.  "Rather an original method of paying a call." retorted the girl. "You see,  I heard you enter the:house."  "How did you know it was not Mr.  Merton���������or his son?" asked Jack, with  amusement.  "Merton;"' The girl lifted her fine  black brows ouestioningly. "You have  niade a mistake; there are no Mertons  here."  Jack  stared.     "Then   I  am  In  the  wrong house.    Isn't this No. 232?" he f  asked bluntly. |  "Yes." j  "My uncle has lived here for twenty-five years. Surely there can be no  mistake, Tou see, I just came In from  the east, and while waiting for western connections I ran up here to-surprise them. Here is the latchkey I  have carried for ten years past. It tit-  ted the door, and so I came in. expecting to find my relatives here." He  stopped abruptly at the slightly scornful expression on the girl's face. "Perhaps you dou't believe me?" he asked  scornfully.  For answer the-girl pushed a newspaper across the table and pointed at  the large half tone portrait of a man  occupying the center of the front  ..������������������'���������������������������, page. It was evident that she had  been reading the paper when he entered and had slipped: into the shadow  of a tall screen at tbe sound of his  approaching steps down the hall.  Jack picked up the paper and carried it nearer the light, the girl still  covering him with the little revolver.  ' The young man uttered a slight exclamation and studied tbe picture and  the surrounding text with amazed  eyes and parted lips.  There before him was what-might  have been a portrait of himself, fair,  keen face, handsome nose and fine  eyes, with the careless toss of hair  above. The black type underneath  proclaimed this the picture of "Fussy  Harry," the slickest gentleman burglar out of Jail, and It was the purpose of the article to warn the public against his early arrlvai In Chicago  ���������and to endeavor to place tbe gentleman burglar behind the bars as  speedily as might be accomplished.  - "You've been reading this?" asked  Jack, rather breathlessly.  The girl nodded.  "I don't wonder you thought I  might be^-let me see���������Fussy narry!  I'll confess that we look enough alike  to be brothers���������twins, In fact���������but I'm  not vain, you know, only have I got  that ratty look In my eyes?" j  "I'd rather not say." returned'the !  girl shortly. "You must understand  that I'm not going to let you get  nway. The paper says you have committed murder���������you are wanted for  numerous burglaries and"���������  "I suppose you intend to call 'up the  police station nnd turn me over to  the authorities. Well, do so! I can  * prove my Identity, but not before I  bnvp been held up to suspicion, my  nnmp handled from one end of the  reer ruined. Well, let 'er go!" said Mr.  land to the other and my future c������-  Merton recklessly.  He leaned against the wall, with  folded arms, and surveyed the carpet  gloomily.  "If you wouldn't mind sitting down  so I can rest my elbow od the desk.  It tires my arm holding this thing out  so. Thank you," she said as Jack obediently sank into a chair.  "If you're going to call the police I  hope you won't mind doing so at once,  because if I can clear myself In time I  want to catch the 9*30 western express."

So Sir Hedworth Lambton has often  been  referred to on  account of   his  many   extraordinary    escapes    from  death,  and   the   nickname   will   be  revived now that Lady Meux has bequeathed to   him   $100,000   and   the  residue of   her estate.    One   of   the  conditions of the bequest, however, is  that he must assume the name and  arms   of   Meux   within   a year.    Sir  Hedworth joined the service as a boy  of fourteen, and was,present at the  homhurdment of Alexandria and the  Battle    of   Tel-el-Kebir.     It   is    in  connection   with   tho siege   of  Ladv-  Bmith, however, that he is especially  noted,   Sir George White   describing  him as the   "life   and   soul   of   the  garrison."

MORRISON, GRAND FORKS  THE LEADING JEWELER  of the Boundary District  A contributor writing in tbe  Kelowna Courier has the following:  "We are in the midst of a crisis  not only in Kelowna, but all over  the Province. A number of serious people have lately come from  the prairies, and they say that  the moral and spiritual condition  of British Columbia will never do.  The old free and easy ways which  have been found so pleasant for  60 vears must be given up, and  everybody must go twice to church  on Sundays and wear a sad face  during the rest of the week. We  have been told by Kelowna aldermen that amusement is not a necessary part oftlife,  The old timers of British Columbia do not take kindly to this  new gospel. . For more than a  centurv this province has been a  very agreeable place to live in,  and it has owed its* reputation as  much to its tolerant spirit and  easv going ways as to any other  cause. It is said that a man who  has lived iu British Columbia can  never feel at home anywhere else.  Certainly he cannot feel at home  on the prairies, for I have known  a good many men who went from  here to the prairies, and they  nearly always come back in a few  months saying that there was too  much intolerance over there for a  man who has known the freedom  of British Columbia. On the  other hand, we find that prairie  people are usually delighted with  British Columbia, and many of  them have confessed that they are  very thankful to get away from  the narrowness of their earlier  lives, and to live in an atmso-  phere of liberty and toleration.  Our strict-minded prairie friends  are always telling us that it  would be the ruin of their boys  and girls to let them grow up in  the free and easy ways of this  country. But the proof of the  pudding is in the eating of it.  There are thousands of men and  women in this province, from  Premier McBride down, who were  born in the Province and have*  always lived in it, and they are asi  fine specimens of humanity as can  be found anywhere in the world.  Stronger and healthier men and  women are not produced on the  face of the earth. The born British Columbian can get along as  well in the world as the native of  any other country. I have met a  great many drunkards in this province, but I do not recollect meeting one who was born in it.  It is interesting to note that  exactly the same situation exists  on the American side of the  boundary. California has even  greater freedom than even British  Columbia has ever had. You can  do almost anything you like there,  and the result is that it is the  most delightful place on the face  of the earth. The people who  live on the American prairies are  greatly shocked at California, and  a number of jealous persons have  from time to time arrived on the  scene and tried to ������������������reform" California.   But they  haye had  no  luck   whatever.    California   can  soon take the vinegar out of the  most ardent reformer in-the world,  and the people that go there to  reform others quickly come to the  conclusion that it would be   far  better   to   enjoy themselves   instead.    The   upshot of it all is  that California has today as much  freedom as she had in the wildest  mining days of the early fifties,  and not a man or women is a bit  the worse of it.    The boys  and  girls who grow up there are admitted by all authorities to be the  strongest, handsomest and healthiest in the United States, and California has produced a far larger  number of distinguished men and  women in proportion to population than any other state in the j  union.  What California has done, British Columbia can do. The vast  majority of the people here desire to continue in the old wavs  of freedom. The old timers and  born British Columbians are dead  against puritanical notions from  the prairies, and nearly all the  people who come from the old  country are intensely opposed to  any interference with individual  liberty, and in that respect they  become good British Columbians  as soon as they get here. All  that is needed is that the majority should put down its foot and  say that it will not yield any inch  to an reformers,, however well-  meaning, and that the settled  habits of the country must be  maintained without any change  in the direction of "greater freedom. The struggle will not last  very long, for a lew years British  Columbia sunshine will be enough  to thaw our prairie friends out,  and then they will be very thankful to us because we refused to let  them spoil British Columbia."

A banker once gave his wife a  book of blank checks all properly signed and ready for filling-  in. "You are welcome to use  these as you see fit," he told her,  '"but I want yon to write on the  stub of each just what that  check was used for, then when  the book has been used up I will  look over the stubs and see what  disposition you have made of  them."  She handed him the book the  other day, after using all the  checks, and he began an inspection of the memorandum on the  stubs.  "Here is check 79 for seventy-  five dollars, marked 'church expenses.' What church expenses  are these? I have regularly paid  the assessments " "he said.  '���������On," replied the wile, "that  was for a uew Easter bonnet."  When a town wants to get the  country filled up around it, it is  folly to attempt to pull down its  neighboring towns. Go a-field  and bring in new people.  One third of the deaths in Manitoba are of children under one  year old. It might be well, instead of giving so much attention  to immigration, to spend a little  more time and money on saying  the home product. The infant  morality throughout the country  is much too high, and much of it  is the result of ignorance.  SIR THOMAS SHAUGHNE88Y  President of the Canadian Pacific Railroad.  To be the guiding spirit of a great railway company, with a firm hand on  the lever of a thousand phases of the work, requires lone, practical, thorough  experience, splendid executive ability in choosing and handling men, and^a quicl$  mind to decide vital issues on the moment if need be. Sir Thomas G. Shaugh-  nessy has these essentials and more; he is a tireless worker, a man of energy and  enthusiasm, a keen common sense that cuts Gordian knots of difficulty with ease,  and a prodigious memory that is always ready on the instant.  He was born in Milwaukee, Wis., of Irish parentage in 1S53, and after taking  the usual course in the public schools had a little supplementary smoothing down  nnd polishing in a business college, and was then ready at sixteen to begin the  battle 61 life. Ho entered the kindergarten of < railroading in his first position  in the purchasing department of the Milwaukee and St. Paul road, and it .was  not long before it was recognized that ho had a good business head firmly set on  his broad shoulders; and with constant purpose and undaunted determination  he worked his way, never looking nt the clock nor stinting his efforts, until m  1S79, at the age of twenty-six, he was general store-keeper of the_road.  In 18S2, Sir William Van Home, another alumnus of this railroad which  was a splendid college of training and experience, resigned from the: Milwaukee  'and St. Paul to assume thc management of the Canadian Pacific. Ho had been  keeping close tally'on-Mr. Shaughncssy's work; ho realized his possibilities and  was confident that the young man was broad-guagc enough to be equal to larger  opportunities, and took him to Canada as general purchasing agent. Two ycara  later ho won, by his ability, the post of assistant gcncrnl manager,.later becoming  assistant to the President and in 1891 was mitdo Vice-President and elected a  director, ancl in 1898 when Sir William Van Home retired from tho presidency,  the opportunity of his life, the climax of tho rosiest dreams of his ambition came  to Mr. Shaughncssy when ho was made President���������the kindly autocrat of the  Canadian Pacific.  In October, 1901, his old folks at home in Milwaukee were roused from sleep  ono night by a messenger with a telegram. In trembling fear his..father.opemd  the envelope and with wonder and delight read aloud these words from one of tho  great railway kings of the western hemisphere: ?'You may bo gratified to know  that His Majesty* has conferred on me the honor of knighthood. X)no owes a great  deal to a good father and'mother.   T. G. Shaughncssy."  fc-ttiad ueorulni to Aot|ol th������ ''������ill������io������u* of CuMk. In tin Hour IMS, l>r W- 0.

"BDT POSSCM   HE PLATED.  that tbe fox, the coon and the "chuck"  give   him   half  the   path   when   they j  meet at uighl.   Any one of them can l  roll him over, but so tough is his hide j  that they might chew on him for au :���������  hour without hurting him. j  Near by lived the good Farmer Dwight. >  Ana the possum he went every night,   j  Jrle went looking for scraps, ;  And he thought that perhaps |  With the dog he'd get up a tight. i  The   possum   does   not   wander   far r  from his lair.   This is because he is  like no other animal iu his eating.   He ;  will  eat  fowls, youug  rabbits'   birds, ���������'  eggs, roots, berries,  vegetables of all '  sorts, scraps from tbe table, mice, bugs :  and  almost  everything else you  can !  think of.   He can therefore get bis liv-1  ing around any farm.   If living near a ;  marsh he will feed on crabs and frogs, j  If there are snakes on a farm be will J  thin   tbem  out.    A   fight often   takes,'  place between a possum nnd a black-  snake,  but the former is always  tiie  winner.    It is said that tbe bite of a  rattlesnake will  not  poison  him.    In  gathering fruit from a  tree tbe possum hangs to a limb by his tail nnd  uses his forefeet to gather wilh.    He  can  eat  more  persimmons  than  any  three colored men, but when It comes  to the watermelon he doesn't care for  It.  He'd pick up a chick now and then  Or strangle a goslln or hen.  He was after the Dest.  And he ate it with zest  Before he'd returned to his den.  The  two oddest   things  about  the  possum is the way he uses his tail to  hang by and his "playing dead" when  attacked and overcome.   II the farmer  clubs one to death, or thinks be does,  the animal will remain quiet for hours  and then get up and walk off.   To actually kill him with a club he must be  beaten to a jelly.    He Das a bide on  him like a bull, and he has few nerves  "Mo feel pain.   A bulldog may worry  one for an hour after he Is supposed  to be dead, and be will come to life  again and make for his tree.  There were nights In the full of the moon  When he was mistook for a coon,  And the dog made him hump  Around bushes and stump  And get out of that pretty soon.  Naturalists used to assert that when  the mother possum bad a litter of five  the old man turned to und ate up three  of them so as to keep tbe number  down where all could make a good  Jiving. This has been found to be incorrect. As soon as the house is full  of children papa takes bis departure  and finds another boarding bouse for  himself. They may live or die. but  it's nothing to him. It Is only at such  times that If lie meets another daddy  possum he will get up a row without  the least excuse. He's mad nbout It.  you see; thinks two In tho family  enough.  Three times he was caught In a trap  And over the head got a rap,  But possum he played,  And llvms no stayed  And winked ns he woke from his nap.  In tlie New York zoo several yen re  ago a possum was struck fifteen times  with u baseball bat In the bauds of a  strong man. He went dead, nnd a  man was set to watch him. He was  watched for teu hours, but as he  stayed dead the wutcher went away  for half au hour. Dpon his return���������no  possum!

He was closely guarded for  three days and was still "all there"  when the boys let hi in go.  At length 'twas thc farmer who said;  "That possum shall sleep with tho dead.  I'll catch him once more,  And, b'go.sli and galoro,  His blood 1 truly will shed!"

Known to tlie irreverent as the  "Linseed Lancers" or the "Poultice  Wallopers," the officers of the lioyal  Army .Medical Corps have undergone  *������������������ good many vicissitudes.  In the old days the army "sawbones" wa3 attached to a regiment,  followed it everywhere, and often  spent his life witn it.  Nowadays, however, with the exception of the Household troops, army'  medical officers are appointed, not to  regiments, but to garrisons, and are  constantly being moved from. one  garrison town to another.  ��������� The modern army doctor, therefore,  has army rank, but, at the same time,  his executive powers are limited. Ha  can only command men of his own  corps.  Candidates must be between twenty,  one and twenty-eight years of age, and  at the time of appointment must ba  registered under the medical acts 'in  force in the  United Kingdom.  They have to undergo an entrance  examination on purely medical subjects, and their character, health, etc.,  being satisfactory, they are appointed  on probation.  While on probation, the oflicer  undergoes a two months' course at  the Royal Army Medical College on  hygiene, pathology, tropical medicine,  military surgery, and military medical  administration. Then lie goes to ths  Royal Army Medical Corps' School of  Instruction at Aklershot for a two  months' course in tho technical duties  of his corps, in eacli case having to  pass an examination at the ond of the  course.  All being well, his probationary  period now expires, and he becomes a  full-fledged officer of tlie R.A.M.C.  Tlie army doctor's pay is fairly  good, certainly very good compared  with that of a regimental oflicer. A.-"  a lieutenant he gets 14s. a day, as  against the 6s. lid. per diem of the  ordinary subaltern; but then he is  usually an older man.  As a captain, the army doctor gets  only 15s. Cd. a' day; but then he can  become a captain in about three  years, as against the six to nine years  that it takes tlie regimental officer to  "get his company." Moreover, after  seven years' total service, the army  doctor gets 17s. a 'day, and after ten  years' total service he waxes fat on  a guinea a day.  A major gets from ������1 3s. Gd. to  ������1 6s. a day, according to length of  service, a lieutenant-colonel from ������1  10s. to ������1 15s., a colonel ������2 5s., and a  surgeon-general ������3 a day; while, if he  become a deputy-director-general, our  military "Bob Sawyer" v. ill get  ������1,500 a year, and if he reach the top  of the tree and becomes d'rector-gener-  al of the Army Medical Service, ������2,000  per annum will be his reward.  These rates of pay are generally  substantially increased by extra pay  for holding certain appointments. For  example, the medical oflicer in charge  of a hospital gets from 2s. 6d. to 10s.  a day extra, according to the niuriber  of beds; an officer holding an appoint,  merit as specialist gets 2s. 6d. a day  extra; and in one way or another the  army doctor can add to his income.  With average Juck an army doctor,  after ten years' service, should be  making at least ������500 a year���������that is,  at the age of from thirty-one to thirty-  eight���������and another ten years should  see him drawing at least ������1,000 a  year.  He has a certainty, and when he  retires���������which he must do at fifty-five,  unless he is a colonel���������there is a pension waiting for him, ranging from ������1  a day after twenty years' service to  the ������1,125 per annum of a retired  director-general, with three years'  Bervice as such, and thirty years' service in all.  In the old days, Indiau army doctors often  made  fortunes out of attending rajahs, who were only too delighted  to hand over  the equivalent!  of  ������10,000  for having   an  ingrowing'  toe-nail removed, or some other trifl-j  ing operation performed.  But these days are gone, and civil  ian practice is only permitted under  certain conditions.  M'filLL'S NEW SCHOOL  Medical Faculty Has a Fir* Modern  Home.  Whon the 500 or more students in  l*niedicine of McGill assemble fc* an-  ��������� other year's work in tlie autumn they  ' will   find   the  new   $800,000  Medical  Faculty Building prepared to .receive  them.  It is pretty safe to say that none of  the universities of the world will afford it's students and professors a  more practically designed and complete home for 'their avocations.  As befits a modern medical training  college, llie 'irst consideration of the  builders lias been hygienic.  The vaulted passages and corridors  are wainscotted with white tiling,  which iinds ph.ee also around doors  and windows, where wooden moulding  is usually employed. Where wood is  used at all, it is old oak, chemically  treated to resist fire. The lesson of  tho disastrous fire which destroyed  the old building and its valuable  museum has not been overlooked.  Tlie administration department and  faculty room are on thu McGill College avenue side of the building, aiid  are beautifully finished in oak. Adjoining on the campus front are stu-  denis' libraries and reading rooms of  equally sumptuous design and liui.sh,  tlie leaded windows bearing in colored escutcheons names famous in medical and surgical science from Aesculapius and Galen down. j  There are two striking tablets also  in tho upper corridors, lo the memory  ol 0.

Prof.  George J.   Blewett  Has  Found  Fame Abroad.  Prof. George J. Blewett of Victoria  College, who last year was honored  with ay call to deliver the lectures on  the Taylor Foundation at Yale, is "a  recognized force in the world of letters though little known in Toronto  outside of academic circles. He has  not any decided talent for preaching,  and is not fond of public appearances  of any kind. ' He leadH a life given  over to books and meditation, and except for thick-crowding fancies might  fittingly be described as a lonely man,  fulfilling the old ideal of the ascetic  philosopher. For his years there is  not a moro widely read student nor  a greater master of English prose style  in Canada.  Dr. Blewett was horn in St. Thomas  in 1873, and comes of an old Cornish  family. From" his infancy he was  scarcely ever seen without a .book in  his hand. He matriculated in 1890,  but after spending over two years at  the University of Toronto was obliged, on account of ill-health, to go  west, where he engaged in Methodist  mission work in Alberta for three  years. Returning to Victoria College,  lie proceeded with his course, and was  graduated with high honors in the department of philosophy in 1897. Ho  spent the next two years in Toronto  in post-graduate work in his chosen  subject. Following this, he pursued  his studies in Germany and at Harvard University. At the latter institution he was showered with honors  and received a fellowship for a year  at Oxford and Berlin.  Dr. Blewett was appointed in the  autumn of 1901 professor of philosophy  in Wesley College, Winnipeg. After  serving there with great acceptance  for five years he was called to Victoria College, and since coming to  Toronto has received tempting offers  to assume professorships in the United States.  Prof. Blewett .published in 1907 a  large volume of philosophical essays  entitled "The Study of Nature'and  -the Vision of God." This book was  received with cordial praise not only  by the daily press, but by such learned publications as The London Quar-.  terly Review, The Expository Times,  The London Spectator, The Philosophical Review, The Revue de Meta-  physique et de Morale of Paris, and  The Review of Theology and Philosophy of Edinburgh.

Nineteen-ten has been a red letter  year in the history of the Upper Fraser River, for in June last the woods  re-echoed the strident blast of the siren of a steamboat which pushed its  way successfully up from Fort George  to Tete Jaune Cache, conclusively  proving that, with ease, its treacherous waters could be navigated by a  shallow draft vessel. Next year, a  fleet of commodious ' stern-whee!ers  will tear incessantly up and down,  bearing constructional material, men,  and provisions' for the building of the  line. Thus, the Grand -Trunk Pacific  will effect two remarkable achievements- in one stroke���������will develop a  vast tract of unknown land by penetrating it with the iron horse, and  open a long-closed waterway to steam  navigation.   .  The.Fraser River Valley will, in the  course of a few years, become one of  the busiest and most prosperous agricultural and industrial belts in British Columbia. As the river is traversed, the mountain ranges roll well  back, leaving a wide, yawning valley  through which the river makes its tortuous way, doubling and redoubling  upon itself. To give some idea of this  extraordinary wandering, it may be  mention that whereas you must  cover 320 miles"to journey by water  from Tete Jaune Cache -to Fort  George, the railway, by following almost an air. line, only requires 206  miles of steel to connect the two  points.  The whole of the valley is covered  with dense impenetrable primeval forest, .stretching from the water's edge  right up to the timber-line on the  mountains. Fortunately, fire has  wrought but little damage here, and  the timber is of distinct value too.  Just how many hundred million dollars this huge forest represents to the  British Columbian Government it is  impossible to say. Towering Douglas  fir are in profusion, while the spruce,  hemlock, and cedar are also prolific.  Dr. Grenfell  In London.  Dr.*Wilfred T. Grenfell, C.'M.G., who  is well-known in Canada because of  his useful work in Labrador, is at  present in England, where he is attracting considerable notice. On Feb.  6, he delivered a lecture in Queen's  Hall, London, before a brilliant audience. He was described by The Westminster Gazette as "one of the best  story-tellers living," which is praise  indeed. Dr. Grenfell describes himself as "the most popular doctor iu  his district," and as he is the only  doctor in one-quarter of a continent,  his claim is not over-stated.  As a youngster. Dr. Grenfell played  Rugby for Oxford. He is an excellent  shot and all-round athlete. He was  house surgeon to Sir Fred. Treves, before crossing the Atlantic to New-  foundland and proceeding to his chosen work in Labrador nearly nineteen  years ago. In different parts of that  extensive country he has set up four  hospitals, which are of great benefit  to the sea-going people. He spends  part of each year lecturing to raise  funds for his work, and his lectures  abound in good stories and stirring  passages, dealing with the adventurous lives and simple heroism of the  people among whom he works.

I-Iogan, Champion  Clog and Pedestal, Dancer of Canada,  who resides at'59 Chambord St., Montreal writes: "It gives me much,pleasure to let you know my opinion of  your wonderful Zam-Buk. For some  time past I have been troubled with  piles, but this year I suffered so much  that I was obliged to cancel a number of engagements. I tried all the  so-called remedies that were recommended, but they seemed to do me no  good. Having been advised to try  Zam-Buk I purchased a box, and after applying it a few times I felt  marked relief. I continued with the  Zam-Buk treatment, and the relief  was extended into a permanent cure.  I gladly permit you to use my experience as an illustration of the great  value of Zam-Buk for piles."  , Another illustration of how Zam-  Buk cures long-standing cases of  piles is provided by Mr. William  Kenty, of Upper Nine ' Mile River,  Hants Co., N.S. He says: "I suffered terribly from piles, the pain at  tknes being ulmost unbearable. Zam-  Buk was recommended to me so I  procured a~ supply and ��������� commenced  with the treatment. After a very  short time Zam-Buk effected a complete cure."  Zam-Buk. is also a cure for ulcers,  abscesses, eczema, cold sores, chapped hands, varicose ulcers, rashes,  blood-poison, ringworm, cuts, burns  ��������� bruises, children's abrasions, tetter,  salt rheum, etc. All druggists and  stores' sell at 50c. a box, or post free  from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price,  Zam-Buk Soap, which may .be had  from' any druggist at 25c a tablet,  should be used instead of ordinary  soap in all cases of eruptions and  skin  diseases.

CHASE'S SYRUP  OF UNSEED AND TURPENTINE  to Help You, If You Get  the Genuine  What a fight goes on during the  winter season against coughs and  colds. The children are careless about  keeping dry and warm, and tlm parents are worried to hear them cough.  The best insurance against serious  results is the use of Dr. Chase's  Syrup cf Linseed and Turpentine.  So well-known is this medicine and  so universally used that we need  scarcely tell you of its merits. But  we do want to warn you against imitations and substitutes..  Once you know that there are at  least lour imitations of Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine on  the market you are not likely to let  any dealer talk you into accepting  anything but the genuine, on each  bottle of which are the portrait ancl  signature of A. W. Chase, M.D., the  famous  Receipt Book author.     .  Imitations are sold on tlie reputation ot this great medicine, and not  on their own merits, or why should  they not have a nimie of their own.  With the geiniiim Dr. Chase's Syrup  of Liimned and Turpentine you can  readily overcome croup, bronchitis',  whooping cough, throat irritation and  '.lie most serious coughs and colds*.

The stage manager of a stock company playing in Spokane, tells the  following story: "One of the stage  cats, seeing the soft flakes of imitation snow trickling from the mechanical clouds of a performance of "The  Girl of the Golden West," entered the  retaining net to play about the time  i took a turn at producing a roaring  blizzard for the road agent. Knowing something of a Dakota zephyr,  and aided by a machine of my own invention I produced a storm that made  the audience ihiver and turn up their  collars. When the act was concluded  we found puss in a pile of paper snow  frozen stiff."  Two hunters returning from the  Oatskills, decided to try some New  York. City humor upon the agent of a  little railroad station in the foothills.  "When does the 3.49 train get in?"  asked one.  The old man regarded him seriously and at length. "Wall," he said,  "she generally gets in just a leetle behind the engine."  Later they approached him respectfully. "About time that train is due,  isn't it Uncle?" _  "Yes," said the agent, she's about  due. There comes the conductor's  dog.

When baby's bowels are  not working regularly illness is sure  to appear, but when the bowels are  regular the little cue is usually bright,  active and happy. No other medicine  for babies has such good effect on the--  bowels as has Baby's Own Tablets.  They make their action regular, sweeten the stomach and promote good  health. Concerning them Mrs. Freeman Feener, of Barry's Corner, N.S.,  writes: "I can heartily recommend  Baby's Own Tablets for all the troubles from which little ones suffer.  My baby girl was troubled with her  bowels and was so small and puny I  thought we would loose her. I saw  Baby's Own Tablets advertised and  began giving thc'in to. her and now  she is a big. healthy, happy baby.  For this I thank the Tablets, nnd I  always keep them in the house."

When the  crash-came a laruc quantity of stationery was  removed  from  the  Times  office  in  the middle   of   the   night.  Part of this stationery had been shipped  to Noyes by Smith, Davidson Si  Wright  of Vancouver, and had not  been    paid    for.     Mr.   McKenzie,  traveller for the Vancouver stationers,  interviewed Mr. Black a few days ajro  for his firm, demanding-  a  return  of  the stationery or the money due for it.  Black stood pat like a big  man  and  said  that  he had sold the stationery,  but would  not state  who  was   the  buyer.    This was small  satisfaction  for  McKenzie,   and   he   left   town  somewhat   disgusted,   and   evidently  thinking that our worthy city solicitor  and  fellow citizen, Mr.  Black, was  somewhat like the picture of the  flap;  and   the   bulldog,   under   which   is  printed, "What we have,  we hold."

Some ladies in Texas were recently desirous of doing honor to  the editor  of a local journal, so  they presented their hero with an  embroidered   shirt,    which    contained    a    splendid    history    of  Texas,  and also pictures of   the  fruits   and   cereals   of   the   state  worked all over it in '.red worsted.  Now   this   particular   editor   had  never worn a shirt, and supposed  the brilliant specimen  before-him  to be a banner for an approaching  temperance   procession.     In    his  speech of thanks he puzzled the  lady donors by declaring that he  would, -'fling it out forever, to the  breezes of heaven,  and that  till  his hands palsied it should  never  be trailed in the dust."  The ladies  blushed,    and   regretted    having  made it too long.

"It is an odd proposition,", hesitated the dean,  "But it is occasionally done,"  suggested the spokesman eagerly.  '"Well," said the dean'. '."We  might arrange it. What price do  you ask?"

A porter on the Canadian Northern   has   forwarded   appended  statistics to Ottawa regarding the  admission   of   Negro   American  farmers to Canada.
