The southern interior of British Columbia between  the Siniilkiimcen and Fraser valleys will be the scene of oue of the  biggest mining excitements British  Columbia has ever witnes-ied, during the coining summer.  Steamboat is in the mouth of  every miner from here to the Mexican border. Thousands of them  are coming. One man who has  been through several stampedes  told me that from 10,000 to 20,000  prospectors and miners will invade  the Steamboat district this season.  Every day new tales of rich discoveries come in. Five miners  win have been in the camp all  winter working ou a couple of  properties came in this week.  L'heir stories are all to the effect-  that there is a big permanent camp  of a'most unparalled richness and  enormous extent in that territory.  Prospectors with whom I have  talked tell me the. formation extends from the summit-seven miles  above Chilliwack lake-to the  Boundary. About midway in it  are the Steamboat Mountain discoveries, tho-ie on Red Mountain  and others. There is a splendid  prospecting country all the way  along.���������Saturday Sunset.

By an amendment to the Municipal Clauses Act just adopted by  the British Columbia Governmeut,  the statute in question governing  all incorporated cities and towns  with the exception of Vancouver  and STew. Westminster, which operate under special charter, saloons  will cease to exist iii this C.iuadian  province from and after July 1st,  .11)14. Present holders of saloon  licences who reconstitute their  premises as standard hotels with  no fewer than thirty guest-rooms  each will be entitled under the new  law to substitute hotel licences  upon recommendation of the licence  inspector. The tendency of some  extinguished saloon keepers to convert their premises into little else  than assignation houses constitute.-,  tho explanation of the large numb-.'--  of rooms required. Since the abolition of the restricted districts of  Vancouver and Victoria, the major-  ity of the habitntes of the erstwhile  segregated district luwe becttiu*  roomers at the smaller hot Is, while  ostensible manicurists dressmakers, masseuses, etc., hive  multiplied in all the residential  districts.

Mnrlquita JosopUa Maria was her  name, according'to the baptismal records in the little white mission church  ut San Juiiipero. Over- at Happy Chance  we called her Quita.  Some way she seemed to belong more  to Happy Chance than she did to San  Jimipero, with its soft toned bolls nnd  the solitude of cloistered gardens. Shi>  was tall and slim'and sunburned, with  lips like (he lieuri of a rose and dark,  shadowy eyes Unit looked sidelony at  oue and made the earth seem au excel-  k_t"|-l-icc to live 'In.  Before Ilapiiy Chance had opened up  as a. silver, mining .center the shack of  old Tom Ken-tor had held its own up  on the mount.-iin side and dominated  the whole valley. So one knew when  it had been built. Furrier had ���������'drifted  from camp to en nip down /through Colorado and crosswise tlirouj-iY tbe Sierras uniil Mexico was the limit nnd lie  found Happy Chance. It was a bit of  the wilderness that had escaped fortune seekers and railroad .'surveyors,  and he held it for his own and believed that some day. ho would be a silver kin-,'.  In earnest of that belief ho had rmilt  the shack and married Dolores I'ulz,  daughter of Ilic old Mexican who  claimed'the valley by prior right. The  result was a success in a way. There  were no signs of silver, but there wns  :'., Qui la.  When   (he strike  did  come,   fifteen  years later, both Kerrler and the Mexican  lay .in  the deep sleep up among  the pines on  the hills, and   from  the  lone shack Quila and her mother looked down on the valley and saw the c-ho  sen   of   the   lord  of  Mammon   sweep  away their Canaan and its wealih: .Bul  they   were   wise,   being   women,   and  showed 110 fight, and Happy Chance as  n "law   abiding   community   reviewed  ��������� "their case and admitted them to a share  in  the  profits of  their own  property  and shook hands with itself over its  generosity.  .The'summer'after tire'.strike.'Larry  Carroll alighted in c-arnp, and we entertained Iiiin una wares, not seeing any  wings. We had heard of Larry before,  lie Was a gentlemanly boy with a  good record behind him; of> ways of  honor. Ho was a miner, but he never  mined. He would follow the cry of  fame to a new c-ainp and laze aro.und  for a few weeks until he found a claim  that suited him. He paid in cash, rind  the camp would see him no more until  one: day he would come back with  some poor innocent of a capitalist he  had corralled,, and the claim would  change hands, and Larry would ride  on in triumph thousands to the good.  It showed a depth of intuitive wisdom that the world respected, and  Happy Chance welcomed him; also h?  had n winning way witli women. lie  was gay hearted and debonair and  masterful, witli eyes of Irish blue and  hair like a water spaniel, chestnut  curled. Ho never wooed Willi words,  only with his eyes. They were suffi-  cient. Vou cannot make out a case  against a man on the score of tender  eyes.

Quita was dancing, and as he stood in  the doorway watching she whirled by  him on big Sim Itawdon's arm. and  the cluster of scarlet mountain flowers  she wore in tier hair fell at Larry's  feet.

"lie didn't steal .me, Sim. 1 I'-iii  away with him because I loved him,  nnd it seemed better to go ut ihe last  moment than to marry you and love  him all the same. 1 thought a girl  could choose the man she loved unci  not have a whole camp chase her and  shoot him down. You don't play fair,  boys."  There was a dead silence. Her eyes  wp-'e full of tears,, and Happy Chance  tn'd its head in shame. It is not pleasant to have a gallant rescue knocked  in the head by the scorn of a n-oinan'a  will.  Hut Sim stood without shame or anger and -stared at the white young  face at Quint's feet, and at last without a word he went down and lifted  Larry in his, arms and made his way  with him to the trail, und Quita followed slowly.  At' Prospern. we left the three, and  Sim never gave up his guard until tho  , wound was healed and Quila rode into camp beside her husband as Mrs.  Larry Carroll.  There were no hard feelings. ' As  Larry said, no laws had been broken  but the Jaw of the heart, and each  heart has a law of its own.  But when it was all over Sim sold  out his mine to him and went back  over tho mountains to the Slates. Wo  understood arid did riot blame Iiim.

"shirt, and; the two went ''.outdoors to  settle (lie argument for possession,  while Quila perched herself on a window sill and smiled -pontontedly.   ,.-  It was the beginning of a state of  affairs which Happy Chance resented.  I'iiTvdon owned the biggest claim' in  camp, nnd if we ever grow to be a city  we intended making him mayor or  chief of police or something interesting. In the dream of the future Quita  had shared his honors in our minds.  She belonged to Happy Chance. It  ���������was right, that she should have the  best article in its marriage market,  and neither Sim nor Quita had objected up to date. Hut with the coming  of Larry there was a change. We carried Sim home from the dance with a  bullet in his shoulder, and Larry went  back and finishrd the ' waltz with  Quita.  Tlio next day Sim went to the shack  with a bandaged shoulder and spoke  up like a man. knowing-' that pulJic  sentiment was with him. When- he  came back tie invited us all to the wedding, aud Larry tipped his chair farther back on the shady'stoop of the  Silver Star and whistled softly.  The wedding was set for the following Saturday, and Sim rode every day  to the shack and came back with a  smile on his lips and a spray of scarlet  flowers from the vine that grow on  Quita's hillside. But Saturday at  sunset, wheu he rode after his bride,  he came hack without smile or flowers and told his story to the crowd i  that waited in the Silver Star. Quita  was gone. Old Dolores said she had  been carried off by the devil with the  Irish eyes to the mountains, and Sim  asked for company.  We were willing to go. She was a  home product, and we didn't propose  having any stray blue eyed maverick  come out of the north and steal ber  away.  Dp through the vailty we rode that  Barley and Malt.  Barley ranks among tho cereals and  grows pretty, much as do��������� wheat, rye  and oats. It is rich in starch uud carbohydrates and contains less gluten  than wheat. Jteontains in abundance  an element only feebly present in  ���������wheat, rye and oats, tho starch and  gluten digesting diastase. When you  tako a grain of barley and steep it iu  water until it is soft, and "then keep it  warm until it sprouts and then, instead of allowing the. diastase to use  itself up, you check the further growth  'by heating the grain, say, 120 degrees Fahrenheit you dry it and  change tho barley to malt. The barley was as hard as flint and too firm to  crush between the teeth. The grain  of malt crushes readily under the teeth,  and the powdery contents are sweet���������  a transformation brought about hy the  digestive action of the diastase in the  grain.  Convicts as Hangmon.  According to a letter written from  Russia, published in the Berliner Tage-  blatt. there are some prisons in that  country in which men condemned to  death are held which have no regularly appointed hangmen. The executioner is selected from amoug the convicts. The man who is so fortunate  ns to be appointed receives 2*5 rubles  for each execution and "a credit of six  mouths on his sentence period. One  convict had nearly worked off his term  and had accumulated a handsome sum  of money Avium the governor of the  prison appointed another hangman.  "Between dull business aud competition, the senior .executioner's term  dragged along, but finally came to an  end, and be went forth freed and comfortably rich," tbe. correspondent reports.  -;;/.

Larry was making for the,  States by his tracks, and we hoped to  catch him before he struck a railroad.  "Will you plug him on sight, Sim?"  asked Keno Davis, In mild interest.  "I dou't believe there'll be any shaking hands," sard Sim grimly, and we  gloried in the coming fight.  Just before sunrise we came upon  them halfway up Bald mountain. As  we rounded a corner of the trail a gray  sombrero showed aboye the tangled  growth of vines and ferns that clung  to the top of the rocks. Sim put a  bullet through It neatly. The answer  laid Keno, Davis out under the shade  of a scrub pine, and we decided to rest  and do battle scientifically, as Larry  hud a clear eye and a mighty good  chance to take his pick of a hostile  force. While the rest of us engaged  his interest from the trail below the  rock, Sim took four others and started  on a detour to reach a point above.  It was a good fight.' There was no  yelling or Apache war dancing, only a  steady,  quiet interchange  of compliments that meant business and a gradually closing in around the rock.  . We knew Quita must bo with him,  hut whether she had fainted or been  hound we could not tell until suddenly  a clear, sharp cry rang out, and every  man lowered his gun at the sound.   It  was a cry for help, we believed, and  we sent back a shout that echoed in  long leaps up the deep ravines and  gulches.    For an   Instant   the   firhij**  from   the   rock  ceased,   then   began  again faster than ever, but not so sure.  All at once the voice of Sim shouted  from above:  "Boys, quit firing'"  It wns hard to obey with victory so  near nnd the bullets flying wild around  our bends from the hidden hand behind tho rock.   But we stopped: they  did also, nnd we scrambled from l?clge  lo ledge up over the ragged, splinrer-cd  stones until the top was gained, and  we looked down on Larry and bis captive.  It was a strange sight. Back against  the rough gray rocks stood Qultir. her  eyes irrhime with reckless courage and  doflnrif-e. Larry's two revolvers were  gripped, still smoking, In her hands.  At her feet lay Larry, his white face  upturned to the dawning light and a  dull crimson stain soaking the right  .side of his gray flannel shirt.  "I'll shoot tho first ono that dares to  touch him!" called Quita.

The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  BrockviliC, Ont.:  Gentlemen,���������It has been my intention to write ..to'you .for ��������� some: time,  but being busy I have lii-glected to do  so until now.  1 mn a 13,-iptist minister. Was ordained .June nth, 1837, in Cramalie  Baptist Clittrch, Northumberland Co.,  Ont. I want to-toll you in as ��������� few  words as possible what I know about  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. 1 was pastor of the Dalesville, Que., .Baptist  Church in IS9I and again in 1894-5.  While pastor in 1891, th? Rev. John  King, a former pastor, aged 74, was  stricken with paralysis so that he  could not help himself. Ho had to,  or did, take a. tnblcsponful of rhubarb  every day to-keep his bowels regular.  I thought of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  He began taking.them and it was not  long before he, could walk again and  his bowels were regular. The paralysis never returned: and his bowels  remained active. He died a few years  ago practically from old age.  I   went   from   Dalesville,   Que.,   to  Groton,   Vermont,   as   pastor   of' the  Baptist Church in that place.   There  lived  a man about  two and one-half  miles  from   Groton   by  the  name  of  Neil-McCroa, a Canadian.-.' I heard he  was ill, and being a Canadian, I wcnl  to see-hirn.   I found him lying {irLf-J.  He said he had no pain, but was roo  weak to sit up.   His lips were bloodless," in fact be was as white as chalk.  I 'recommended. Dr.   Williams'   Pink  Pills and gave him some.    He began  taking them  and    in   a   short time  could  see blood  in   the  veins of  his  hands   and   in   the   course   of  a   few  weeks he was out watching men building a now bam for hirn, and shortly  after   that  In?  came    to    Groton    to  church.   Now, I ought to tell you that  the doctor of  Groton had given him  up.   The Ryegtrte doctor (a doctor in  an adjoining  village)   could  riot help  him and said so.   Tlio best doctor in  the hospital of Burlington, Vt., came  and  saw Mr.   AfcCrcn,  hut  said   he  could  not help hirn.    He did not get  any help till Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  put hirn on his feet again.  Later I returned to Dalesville, Quo.,  as pastor. A young Iruly who lived  about six miles west of Dalesville al  a place called I'dina, sent for me to  comn to see her, as she had been a  member of my congregation in my former pastorate. 1 went to see ber and  found a similar case to that of Mr.  McCren, of Grot'in, Vt. This girl was  so weak she could not sit up. She appeared to be bloodless. I said to her:  "It will cost you $0.00 to get a doctor  to come out from'Luchiito to see you,  whereas voir cair get six boxes of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for $2.G0," She  followed my advice, took Dr. Williams' Pink Pills nnd when some time  later I saw her in Lacliute, she wns  ns well as ever, nnd Ur. Williams'  Phi- Pills did it all.  I have given you the facts of these  three cases which enme to my personal noliee nnd T think only just to  other sufferers that thr-ne crises should  he given (lie -widest publicity.

How Famous-Men  Loved  Fermented  Corn  and  Grape Juice.  Nearly all the great men-of Greece  and Rome were heavy drinkers.  Alexander' the Great when he sighed  because there- were no more worlds  to conquer was recovering from a debauch of two weeks' duration. He  drank so hard as-to have delirium  tremens and this excess' killed him  at the early age of 32. It took him  two days and two nights to get over  a royal banquet.  Julius Caesar liked his wine almost  as,much as fighting. While drunk he  gave Eutychus, his charioteer, a tip  amounting to $80,000, the; greatest  gratuity on record.  Philip" of Mncedon was a drunkard.  He always left' the banquet table  staggering.  Nero 'was* in the habit of sitting  down at noon and eating and drinking, until midnight, and usually had.  to be carried to bod from wine drinking.   ��������� ���������  Tiberius was' a drunkard. . After'  becoming emperor of Rome he was  intoxicated so often that his army  nicknamed him Biberius, meaning  "tippler."  Sardanapolis,- last king of the Assyrians, would not only ' get drunk  but would nrnke the 100 or more of  the female-beauties of his court get  as full. as he did. The royal spree  was a great sight with women lying  on the floor in various stages of intoxication.  . The excesses of the Persians gradually affected Greece. The Romans  imitated the Greeks, and carried  over indulgence to an extreme never  equalled. Glut'.ony .and in temper,  mice reigned, and huge fortunes were  spent in single repasts. Of the many  feasts given by Vitcllius. not one cost  less than $1,500 and his r-?'gn was'  almost a continuous debauch. Corn-  modus was a notorious drunkard, and  Septimus Scverus .was not much better.  When Heliogabahrs ascended the  throne he had a m;tn whose special  task was to record thc orgies. Forty  courses a- day were served at his  feasts, each one of which cost not loss  than -$10,000. He gave fortunes "to  inventors of new drinks.  Apicius . spent $3,00O,0C0 on rare  wines and dishes. He went over his  books one day and found that he had  but $300,000 left. Rather than live on  such a pit.ance- he stepped out into  the backyard and killed himself.  Many of - the famous" drunkards  drank $500,000 worth of wine at a  single meal: At iu luncheon given  to Cicero and Po*nf������,ey by Lucullus  $5,000 worth of wine was consumed  by the three.

Sometimes their "ghost" proves to  be an elusive, oily, fleet-fooled  "loose-wallah," or Indian native robber, masquerading in a winding-sheet,  in the hope of diverting the attention  of sentries whilst other robbers make  raids on rifles. Sometimes thc "ghost"  exists only in the imagination of a  scared recruit, doomed to -patrol at  midnight a lonely spot where a murder or suicide has just been committed; and sometimes the "ghost" that  has frightened many sentries out of  their wits is only a' .harmless but  playful canteen cat.  But these examples lack the weird,  true ghostly flavor attaching to the  experiences of thc sentries at Hampton Court Palace. Night after night a  ghost, said to be that of one of our  murdered royalties, appeared before  the lonely sentry in the grounds, and  succeeded in scaring the whole guard.  But Mr.., Ernest Law, the historian  of the palace, has brought forward  what is discribed as "indisputable  evidence" as to the existence of Queen  Catherine's ghost in the "Haunted  Gallery."  rvlinard's   Liniment-  Cures   Distemper  .

The crown jewels, which for nine  months have been stored away in a  secret place, have now been returned  to the Jewel House of the Tower, and,  by the order of the Lord Chamberlain, were on view for the first time  the other week.

The  King has named the famous Cujlinan  diamonds "The Stars of Africa"���������a  particularly appropriate honor t/o the  Union of South Africa. The' largest  section of what was once known as  the Cullinan Diamond, now one of  the twin "Stars of Africa," is fixed to  the front of the imperial crown, and  the famous Black Prince Ruby has  been placed in the centre of tho  Maltese Cross. The smaller diamond  is to be seen fixed in the head of, the  sceptre. Both the "Stars of Africa"  can be detached and used as' a pendant to be worn by the Queen.  BABY'S SPLENDID  HEALTH  Mrs. -R. Yntes, Montreal,  Que., writes:���������"Baby's splendid  health 'was obtained through  the use of Baby's- Own Tablets.  They are a grand medicine for  constipation, as their action is  easy and does not give baby  pain. I would recommend them  to all mothers; uo .one should  be without them who have  young, children in the house."  This testimony is similar to  thousands of others sent -us by  grateful mothers. Every mother who has ever used the Tablets for her little ones will tell  you they arc the very best  medicine in thc world. They  not only cure the ills of the lit- j  tie ones, but they make them  grow happy and strong. The  Tablets can be given to even the  youngest babe with absolute  safety as they aro sold under  the guarantee of a government  analyst to contain no opiate or  other harmful drug. They cannot possibly do harm���������they always do good. Baby's Own  Tablets are sold by medicine  dealers or at 25 cents , a box  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Out.  Yet Zam-Buk   Has   Worked   Complete  Cure.  This is the experience of a man of  high reputation, widely known in  Montreal, and whose case can readily  be investigated. Mr. -T. M. Marsh,  the gentleman referred to, lives at 101  Deloriiuier Avenue, Montreal, and has  lived there for years.' For twenty,  five years he had eczema on his hands  ���������ind wrists. The disease first started  in red blotches, which itched, and  .when scratched became painful. Bad  sores followed, which discharged and  the discharge spread the disease until his hands were one raw, painful  mass of sores. Just imagine this  state of affairs continuing for twenty-  live years.  ln that time four eminent medical  men tried lo cure him, and eaeh gave  up the case as hopeless in the end.  Naturally Mr. Marsh tried remedies  of all kinds, but he, also, at last gave  it up. For two years he had to wear  gloves day and night so terrible was  the pain "and itching when the air  got to the sores.  Then came Zam-Buk. He tried it,  just.as he had tried hundreds of remedies before. But lie soon found  out that Zam-Buk was different.  Within a few weeks there were distinct signs of benefit, and a little perseverance with this great herbal balm  resulted in what he had given up all  hope of���������a complete cure! And ' the  cure was no temporary cure. It was  permanent.. He was cured nearly  three years ago. Interviewed tin-  other clay, Mr. Marsh said: "The cur-.-  which Zam-Buk worked has been -absolutely permanent. From the day  that I was cured to the present moment I have had no trace of eczema,  ancl I feel sure it will never return.  Having suffered for twenty-five years  I had naturally concluded that my  case was incurable, and I regard my  cure as a modern miracle."

Receiving Christmas mail in April is  the joy in store for whalers who are  wintering in the neighborhood ci  Herschel Island. h Early last month y  mail left Edmonton,, six hundre '  pounds of it, no more, no less, whicl  is designed to carry the season's chee-  to the trapper, the Hudson Bay em  ployes, the isolated constables of th*.  Royal Northwest Mounted Police, th-.-  pioneer homesteaders'along the Peace,  Athabasca, and Mackenzie Rivers,  and, eevntually, to men who are win-  terBound in the Arctic itself. An  Edmonton exchange tells thus of the  Remarkable journey: .   ,  Six hundred pounds is all that the  Hudson Bay Co. will agree to carry  to northern points, and so if it happens that the large number^'of papers,  letters, and postcards consigned to  the inhabitant of the winter-bound re  gions exceeds that weight, the pos-t-  office authorities must go through tho  mail and cut out what they believe  ���������to be least important in order to reduce it lo the maximum allowance.  When the mail was being made up  :t was discovered that the total weight  of the northbound parcels on hand  was 602 pounds. Ninety-two pounds  .vere accordingly laid aside; newspa  pers, catalogues, and other of less important matter were cut out and will  be forced to wail for the next mail.  Some one up north will not hear  from home this winter as a consequence, but the postoffiee authorities  are doing the best they can in the  present stage of the country's development.  Lac-La Biche is the first stop of the  mail carriers. The bags are taken to  this point by team and sleigh, and  after the Lac La Biche mail has been  dropped off, the remainder is carried on by means of the Hudson Bay  Co.'s dog teams^  In charge of' experienced runners  of the trail the 1,249' letters and 57  postcards for which isolated men and  women are patiently and'anxiously  awaiting, continue the northern journey over frozen streams, snowy plains,  and through wooded bluffs. From Lac  La Biche the carriers strike northward  along the proposed route of the Alberta ancl Great Waterways Railway  to Fort McMurray; then up the Athabasca to Fort Chippewyan. The next  stop is Fort Resolution by the frozen  waters of Great Slave Lake.  This is the last place that could  possibly be i*eached before Christmas,  and if there was Christmas mail for  points farther north it arrived " too  late.  From there the mail will, be carried  to Fort McPherson and on through  to the Arctic Ocean where the whaling ships lie ice-bound around Herschel Island, and the crews' of the  vhaling vessels are .passing away the  time telling stories of sea life in ex-  '-���������-���������I*  * s>> \  it the name ol this paper, and'mail  it, with one cent stamp to pay return  postage, to Zam-Buk Co., Toronto.

One institution ol  learning where the puck-chasers pro  mise to be prominent this year is Os-  ;oode Hall, and the young men who  study in the shadow of that ancient  pile are busily organizing a team for  the coming winter. The presence of  these future lawyers on the ice recalls  a story of the late B. B. Osier, who  took considerable interest in the Cana  dian national winter sport. Some six  years ago three of the students in Mr  Osier's firm -played hockey, and were  prominent members of the Osgoode  team. The famous lawyer noticed that  their interest in sport did not add to  their brilliance when at their work,  but he found no fault with them. His  only rebuke was a very mild one administered after the close of the season- at a dinner given by some enthusiastic followers of the team.

"Wine is so plentiful at the present time on tho shores of Lake  Magiore, from tho village of Brione  to Orselina, that it is given freely  to tramps who ask for a drink.  The poorest people leave a bowl  of wine on tho windowsill for all  comers. It is frequently refilled,  and even the birds share the hospitality. Tho farmers, in order to  make room for tho coming vintage,  are getting rid of their ordinary  wine at nominal prices.  Parents freely give tho wine to  their children, and teachors complain that many of their pupils  ni-rive at school in an inebriated  condition. It is rare to see a child  in this district without a little  gourd of wine slung across his  shoulders for his own consumption.  Samples of Ore from some  of the claims owned by the  Company may been seen on  exhibition in various places in  the City.  OLA  LOFSTAD,   President.  A GENTLE REMINDER  A clergyman had been for some  timo displeased-with tho quality of  tho milk senved him. At length  ho determined to remonstrate with  his milkman for supplying such  unworthy stuff. Ho began mildly.

"I onlv  wanted to say," continued the  minister, "that I use the milk for  drinking purposes exclusively, and  not for christening."  <_>  1  m  -\L  ms3^a^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^s^  lMmmkmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm  ������5V'.'
