That gall who  took, off her life-belt 'and gave it to a  I-taHan gen*: who wanted one, time' uv  the wreck,~was great stuff."  "Huh!" said  Aunt  Lucy,   "wimmiii  hev been doiu' that fer ages an' ages.  That there dago was makin' a holler, an'  the hdy couldn't stand fer it.    Mos' any  woman would prefer to drown to death  than hev to listen lo a man body makin'  o holler.   That's what kap' wimmin back  for two thousan'  years.   There isn't ,a  minute in the day that some man body  some place er somewheres ain't makin'  h hollo r about something, aud  the wiiu-  min hev to give up so a-, to keep them  quiet.    A man's always wautiu' some-  thin', whether it's good fer him er not,  an' he makes more noise uer a gravel  train till he gits it.   A woman jest natch-  elly hates fer to hear an able-bodied man  gruntin' around like a bear with a sore  head, and it's up to her to put him out  of his misery some way er another.    It's  a popular idee that it's the wimmiii folks  who up'n make a noise when anything  happens.   There's where yer all wrong.  [ One ornery man kin make more clammer  'bout nothin' in a minute than a ten-acre  field full o'  wimmin would make in a  month.    When a hen-hawk heaves in  sight it's our rooster that runs the fastest  an' does all the yclliu' for the perleece,  and Sir Ann's Jersey bull makes more  noise iu one afternoon than all the milch  cows this side uv Ottawa,  "I jes' feel' for that air Miss Tweedie.  I, guess she had more'n half a notion  that she was a-goin' to die, an' she jes*  natchelly wanted to die in peace, an'  along comes a noisy dago hollerin' fer a  lite-belt, and she gave him hers, an' he  took it, like a uian.'   -  ."If it ain't a life-belt a man wants, he  makes a holler about som'ethin' else���������  'Where's my collar-button?'     'Where's  my studs?'   'Where in heaven's name is  my socks ?'   'Where's my pipe���������my noos-  paper���������my specks���������my medicine���������my regalia���������my eye-water���������my   slippers���������my  perogatives ?'   It's always somethin' er  another, aud some pore woman lies got  to up'n dust aroun' an' git them fer hiin-  not because she is stuck on him any, but  jes' because she's williu' to do mos' anything fer a peaceful life..   When a man  starts to holler it gits oil her nerves. You  sec a woman slavin'; away  at  this  er  that an' takin' big chances, an'what's  she doiu'it fer ?   She's doin' it to keep  some man from hollerin' his head off.  She's afcared he might break a blood-vessel an' spile her new carpets.   She don't  go to the dance, er to the rink, cr to thc  tcrboggin slide 'cavse her man  might  make a holler.   He is the Big Noise all  right'nuff, and her only comfort is that  her childreu'll never inherit lung trouble  from him, anyway.  "If anything happens and they air all  took off to the hospital in an ambulance,  it's the man who does all the hollerin'  fer thc hull fambly. The woman never  says -'M-ui I' You will hardly believe it,  but nine-tenths of thc wimmiii in this  world air chiefly engaged in tryin' to  keep thc men quiet.

Steven, or "Scotty" as  his friends call him, is rapidly becoming one of the leading real  estate men at the coast. Here is  his latest big sale as reported in  the Province:  An important deal in Granville  street realty was closed today when  two lots having a frontage of fifty  feet, immediately north of the site  of the proposed Burns block, opposite the Hotel Vancouver, and  owned by Lord Elphinstone, was  purchased by two Dawson capitalists. The exact price is witheld  but it is understood that it was  approximately 82,600 per front  foot. The sale was negotiated by  Mr. R. K. Steven of this city, the  vendor being represented by Messrs.  Mahon, McFarland & Proctor.  The new owners plan to improve  the property next year. It is now  occupied by a stone and brick  building. It is a noteworthy fact  that the same two lots were purchased in 1890 for 81,500 each.  Mr.��������� Steven-expressed the'opinion  that property from Georgia to Davie street will soon be ae valuable  as realty in any other part of the  city.

All told, there are five different  outfits now preparing for active  placer work in the Omineca next  summer, to work on as many different creeks.  There are hundreds of creeks in  the Omineca on which coarse gold  can   be panned,  but  as   yet  tho  transportation facilities are   such  that unless a prospector is ��������� 'grubstaked" by strong financial backing, he will stand little chance of  making good.    That the Omineca  will in the near future be attracting thousands of prosgectora there  is little doubt, all who have so far  been  in there havo the  greatest  confidence in the richness of its  placer deposits.   Brewer knows of  one creek where a man can  rock  out as high as $15 to $30 per day,  but that is only on the bars, and it  would bo costly to outfit for a sea  son's   work   there;   bedrock    has  never been reached, and to prospect the creek to bedrock will require a number of drills,  which  means several thousands of dollars  This is beyond the means of the  ordinary prospector, but after next  summer's  development is  under  way, that country will attract so  much attention that any prospector  who is unable to undertake the  work and carry it through, should  not have muoh difficulty in obtaining the grub-stake to go there.-���������  Inland Colonist,  HE DID NOT ADVERTISE.

If there be, go mark him well,  For hiin no bank account shall swell,  No angels watch the golden stair,  To welcome home the millionaire.  The man who never asks for trade,  By local line, or add displayed,  Cares more for rest than wo'rldly gain,  And patronage but gives him pain.  Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound  Disturb his solitude profound,  Here let him lie in calm repose,  Unsought except by men he owes.  And when he dies, go plant him deep  That nothing may disturb his sleep,  Where no rude clamor may dispel  That quiet that he loved so well.

When you have any deep-seated  pain in the joints, the back, the wrists  or elsewhere, place a liberal supply of  Zam-Buk on the lingers or on the  palm of thc hand and" rub it in. The  punetiating power of litis ' embioca-  fion-bahn" is very great. It kills pain  and removes stiffness. Mrs. Frances  Wyatl, of 25 Guy Avenue, Montreal,  says: "I have' found Zam-Buk most  soothing and valuable in a very bad  case of rheumatism, and also for stiff-[  ness of joints and muscles. I suffeied  long ancl acutely from rheumatism,  and fried one liniment after another  in vain. I also took medicines internally, but it remained for Zam-Buk  to effect' a cure. 1' began applying  this balm whenever I fe'.t the aches  and pains of rheumatism coming on,  or felt any of the stiffness. The result' was truly wondrrful. Zam-Buk  seemed to penetrate to the very seat  of the pains, driving them completely  out,-and now ] am quite cured."  So many of the ordinary embrocations and liniments are imperfectly  prepared and not sufficiently refined  fo penetrate even the skin���������much less  the underlying muscles. Zam-Buk is  totally different. Zam-Buk is so refined, and its essences and juices are  so concentrated, that when rubbed in-  lo the muscles for rheumatism sciatica, spra'ir*, etc., its effects are  very quickly, felt.  If rubbed on to the chest and between the shoulders in cares of had  cold on the clie.-if, Zam-Buk will give  relief. .Apart from its u.-ie as an em-  brocnfio'i, Zam-Buk will be found- a  cure for all ordinary forms of skin  disease and injury. It cures.eczema,  rashes, ringworm, cnM sor.-s. ulcers,  .-.b-icesses, chapped hands, piles varicose veini. cut\ Inn ns, bruises,' etc.  All druggists and stores at 50c, or  post free from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto,  for price.

Ireland is certainly not the "poor  distressful .ccuntry'' some people w-jiild  like one to believe. The fact that it  possesses gold mines (although the>  are not worked to-day) is proof to the  contrary. The mines are situated hi  Wicklow. According to tradition, the  Wicklow gold mines were hrst discovered- by a poor schoolmaster. One  clay, while lisning m one of the  ���������streams wnich descend from the Cro  gnan Mountains, he picked up a piece  of shining metal. Ascertaining thit  it was gold, he gradually enucned  niniseif by searching the various  otiearns in the neighborhood aid disposing of what he tound to n Dublin  goldsmith. He kept the secret to hitn-  :-elf for twenty years, but having mar-  lied, he told "his wife,* and she, believing that he was mad, told her re  latives, who soon made it public  O'Keefe has founded au amusing  laice upon the incident.  When the stoiy ot the gold mine  became public, about the close of 1795,  the usual "rush" occurred. Thousands  of every age and sex hurried to the  spot. -From the laborer who could  wield a spade to the child who scraped the surface .of the rock .with a  lusty nail, all eagerly searched for  gold. The rich ana fanciful imagination .of the Irish conjured, up visions  of inexhaustible wealth.- On the no'rtn  side of Wicklow County sparkled the  Valley of Diamonds, and on the soutn  the lofty Croghan was to tbem'as the  ti olden Mountain.  De Latocnaye, a French "emigrant,  who published an account ot his  travels in Ireland, visited the Wick  low gold mines snortly after the Government had placed a guard upon the  ground. He writes: "1 was oftni,  obliged to ask the way, and my demands excited tne cuiiosity ot the  peasants; they quitted their work be  tore they answeied me, asked me  some question in their turn, wanted  to know if the mine would be soon  worked, if the Government had sent  me there, and a thousand, things ol  the same nature. They soon began  to tell me of a person who sent hi.-  children there on a Sunday morning  after it had rained, and that tiie.v  broughi, back gold to ��������� the value ol  twenty guineas."  During the interval between the pub  lication of the circumstance and  the  Government taking possession of the  mine���������a   period  of   two   months���������up  wards of 2,500 ounces of gold was col  leeted by the peasantry, chiefly from  the mud and   sand   of   Balhnvalley  stream, and   disposed   of   for   almost  'i'50,000.    This  sum  greatly  exceed.jn  the produce of the mine under Gov  eminent     opci aliens,     which     onlj  amounted to little more than $17,5Uu  The gold was found  in pieces of ah  sizes, fiom the smallest paitiele to n  mass   of   twenty-two   ounces,   whic'i  sold for about eighty guineas.   A cast  of it, gilt, was deposited in the mu  seum of Trinity College, Dublin.    So  pure was'the gold generally found that  it was the custom of the Dublin gold-^  smiths to put gold coin into the op  posite scale to it, and to give weight  lor weight.  Sports   In  England.  A diversion little followed in America now. but"which still holds its own  in England, is the walking or bicycl  ing tour. England is not a countr*  given to sudden crazes in the matter  of sports. There are reasons, of course  in which some game like ping-pong or  diabolo carries everything before it  for the moment and is then as sud  clenly diopped. But, on the whole, a  sport that has once become popular  in Engiand temams so. Bicycling l.  a ca^c in point.

Anniversary of Birth  of Dr. Johnson  The two hundred and first anniversary of the birth of Dr. Samuel Johnson has just been celebrated in his  native city of Litchfield. Among the  state proceedings the principal feature  was the inauguration of a Johnson  society, which aims at aggravating the  inteiest in the doctoi's life and works.  At a supper of Johnsonian fare,  Oscar ,Bi owning expressed a hope that  it would be found possible to secure  the house in Gough Square, where  Johnson lived, as a national memorial.  Theie aie two facts, however, that  prove the absurdity of the suggestion\  Firstly, London is, to use Londonese,  "fed up" with Johnsonian memorials;  the neighborhood of Fleet street fairly  shrieks of Johnson. There is the  statue of Johnson, the Johnson's .pew  in St. Clement Danes, Johnson's court,  Johnson's walk, busides the inscriptions on. the many houses where he  lived. Secondly, the house in Gough  square is a mere shell, with no interior features of intere->t, excepte the  memory that the famous dictionaiy  was compiled in the gairet. It would  take a small fortune to ' make the  house visitable, a fortune that any  unprejudiced literary body could expend in a hundred better ways.  What May Be Expected  It was in 1920.

The most noticeable and immediate  result of -rheumatism is a marked  thinning of the blood, and in no disease does it develop more rapidly.  Not only does the blood become weak  but it is sooii filled with impurities,  which the different organs of the body  have been unable to throw off. One  of the most harmful of these impurities is uric acid, which is formed from  the waste products of the body. In  health it is readily passed off by the  kidneys with the help of oxygen fiom  the red corpuscles of the blood.  Without oxygen the kidneys are unable to rid the system of this acid and  it is retained in the blood and dis-  tiibuttd to all parts of the body. The  weak back, pains across the kidneys  and thin scanty, highly coloied secre  tions, which follow, show that thc  acid is already m thc blood and often  leads the sufferer to think he has kidney trouble. If. the disea e is not  driven out of the blood, rheumatism  can never be cured, and the sufferer  will always be subject to attacks,  whenever exposed to damp or cold  With each returning attack the pain  becomes more severe and complica  tions often arise making necessary the  use of habit forming drugs to relieve  pain. * ,   ���������  It is readily seen that the only way  to cure rheumatism is through the  blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills afford  such a trcal.'.ient as they contain all  thc elements necessary to build up  and purify the blood. They increase  its oxygen cair}i:ig capacity enabling  the kiilncys to pass the uric acid  from the body and the other organs  to do their work. Thus rheumatism  is reached at its root and permanently cured. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  are absolutely free from all habit-  forming drugs, and are not an experiment as the'following case will show:  ���������Mr. W. Stulley Lewis, Pilot Mound,  Man., says:���������"I am a firm b liever in  Dr. Williams'-Pink Pills and always  keep some hy me in case of need. A  few years ago while teaching school I  suffeied so much with rheumatism in  my arms and shoulders that I had the  greatct dilliculty in writing on the  blackboard, and after trying a number  of remsdi"s without benefit, I was almost in despair, and felt inclined to  abandon teachin<r. But one day I  huppenedto pick up one of Dr. Williams' almanacs, and read of the cure  of a number of severe cases of rheumatism through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. This decided me  to give the Pills a trial, and I had  only" taken them a few weeks when I  felt much better. In the course of a  few weeks more the pains and stiffness  had all l-*ft me, and I had no more  dificulty in doing my work. I cannot  say enough in praise of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for they and they alone  cured me of my rheumatism."

KIPLING AS A SCHOOLBOY.. .  ��������� S.    I SMI   l-teresting Recollections of a "Queer  .     ���������    Little Undersized Lad."  Schoolboy memories of a queer littla  lad who afterwards was Rudyard Kipling were .told in Chicago the other  day by Capt. Arthur St. John, retired  oflicer of the English army, world  traveler, and leader in the movement  to reform English-prisons. Capt. St.  John is in the United States as a dele  gate from England to the International Prison Congress in Washington.  "It was in 1878 or 187S that I first  remember Kipling," said St. John. "I  was then in the upper forms of the  United Service school. Westward Ho  which is on the north Devon coast. A  queer little under-sized lad he war*  then, perhaps 1.3 years old. -1 remember him distinctly and knew him as-  well as an older boy in a large school  usually Itnows his juniors. Kipling -i  fondness for long words made him  noticeable. The older boys knew him'  as the 'little fellow who knew tin*  meaning of long words.' He would  give little information - if you asked  him what the words meant; he'was  afraid of being jollied. For all that,  he was not a chap who could care for  his own rights very well.  "I remember paiticularly that the  older boys would order the lad to eat  worms .or dirt or something as deli  cate. He would pretend to obey and  would "go through the form of eatin!*  the worm assigned to him. I don't  know whether he did it or not. We  older boys know h'm also as *the little  fellow who would eat' worms.' For all  his apparent yielding I never felt that  the subserviency went very deep. He  .vould apparently yield because he was  unable to do otherwise. We.felt, however, that below the surface his spirit  was his own. ' ���������  "Of course,-he-was never good .at-  any form of athletics. Although Westward Ho is situated on the ocean,' s  do not remember that Kipling wi*  ever a good swimmer. He was under-  'sized aud too near-sighted for t'u  sports. His story 'Stalky and Co.' wa-  ivritten about Westward Ho. Of course  the story is not a correct portray ii  of the school life. There used to be  a story that Kipling dared not meet  his ' schoolmates    after    writing    the  story- ���������,   t '-_  ��������� "The same things are said of hi-*  Anglo-Indian stories. I was bom in  Jolander in the Punjah region, and  'ater served with- my regiment. in  India, among other places. The offi  cers attached to the Indian service  resented the life which Indian "officers  lead in the stories The whisky and  women features I refer to. Still, all  vho know Indian life know that he in  tc-rpreted the Indian character, well,  and most Engliih officers are fond oi  the straight Indian stories.  ROYAL PALACI FOR IRELAND.  King George Said to Be Contemplat-  .ing Such a Move.  Since the coming of'King George  to the throne the rumors about the  establishment of a royal residence in  Ireland have been revived and this  time I am informed it is more than  likely^ that they will be verified, says  a London* correspondent.  It is known that when he was  Prince ot Wales the present King was  greatly taken with an estate in- the  north that was coming into the market,, and instructed an agent to acquire it for him. The matter came to  the ears of the then lord lieutenant,  who immediately- protested to King  Edward that his position, never a  pleasant one, would become absolutely untenable if the prince established  a residence in Irelanc". The King  saw, the justice of the complaint and  ordered his son to drop the negotiations.  Now that George is king he is free  to follow his own inclinations in the  mattet and of course there could be  no trouble of the sort feared before.  As king he could spend little time in  Ireland and when he was, there of  course the viceroy would have to take  a back seat if he did not efface himself altogether. When the real king  was in Ireland 'here would be no use  for a vice-king.  I am told that he is now after a  fine estate in the south which  abounds in game and that the owners  are more than willing to sell.  The politicians see in this rumor  confirmation of the report that the  offer to Ireland of self-government in  some form will be the outcome of  the conference on the powers ,of the  House of Lords which is still going  on. The King is known to favor this  course strongly and to be desirous  that his zeign should be thus signalized. I am told that not very long  ago, when he was discussing the fact  that he would be unable to carry out  the engagement he made as Prince of  Wales to open the first Pailiament of  United South Africa, he declared that  he would have no, regrets on this  score it he were enabled* to'open the  first Irish Parliament in College  Green in person.     ' ..  '    Football.  The King has evidently taken a.  fancy to tne Association game, wliL'u  he had not seen prior to his visit to  the England v.
