A Smart Irishmin.  *  When the Irish go away from home  they often become rich of famous in art  or literature, Look at the career of Tom  Walsh who died the other day worth  millions made out of mining.  Mr. Walsh was born in an Irish peasant's hut; he died in a mansion. He was  once a carpenter in Worcester, earning  53.50 a day; he died leaving i>roo,ooo,ooo  or more. As a brvy and a young man he  was always, affable and of high spirits;  his wealth merely served to make him  more democratic. He had practically no  education, but he died witn the reputation of possessing a master mind.in the  business which had engaged his attention  for so many years.  Mr. Walsh was born in 1851 iu Tipper-  ary, Ireland. He stayed at home until  he was eighteen. _His father was^a small  landowner, but'hefhad a fa.*itly-~pr'sons>>J-  Young Walsh decided "to learn the'wheel--  wrighL's trade, earn money and emigrate  to America. Hut apprentices were paid  nothing and his plan failed. He started  for the United States on money given  him by his father and landed in Boston  with Sao. 'Thank Got, I am in a free  country," said the lad as he walked down  the gang-plank ..       '        " "'  Tlie late Mr. Walsh was not our Tom,  so well and favourably known in the  Boundary. Onr Tom is very much alive  and in a fair way to make millions at his  hotel in Bridesville.  Sheep Creek.  Parbies from Greenwood have  made a rich strike gold quartz, not  far from Erie.  The big cedar swamp atSalmo is  on fire. The system of culling the  timber and the accumulation of  slashing-! during several years have  been a sou rep. of constant danger to  the town. The fire started last  Thursday, and Jimmy Vin Hook  tackled it single-handed, but wa-J  forced to call for as-dstance. and  the government sent 20 fire-eaters'  from Nelson who soon had the fire  under control, but the big hollow  cedars are liable to burn until the  snow falls.

Samuel Popys Mentions It as a New  Drink In 1660, and at This Time  It-Cost $15 a Pound Which Made  It a Luxury Only For the Rich���������  William III. Was the First Royal  Drinker of the Cheering Cup.  It is two hundred and fifty years  ago since the astute "fir. Pepys noted  down in his diary, on September 23rd.  1660: "1 did send for a cup of tee, a  China drink of which I hud never  drank "before." He did not record  whether he liked it or not, but 3even  years afterwards���������July 28th, 1G67, he  noted down among his daily doings,  "Home, and there find my wife making of tea, a drink which Mr. Pelling,  the Potticary, tells her is good for  her cold."  At this time, tea was nn expensive  luxury, only for the rich. Indeed, at  one time it wns said to cost $15 a  pound. Coffee was cheaper, nnd more  universally used. In Tlie Kingdom's  Intelligencer, u weekly paper published in 1002, we nre told that, "At  the coffee house in l-'xchiuige Alloy  is sold by retail the right coffee ixiw-  dor, from 4s. to 0s. 8d. per pound, as  in goodness, also tlmt termed the  East India berry at 18d. per pound,  and that termed the right Turkic  berry, well garbled, at 3s. per pound,  the uiigarhk-d for lesse, with instructions gratis how to iniike arid use the  same." Chocolate was also to be had,  the ordinary pound boxes lit 2s. Cd.  per pound, the perfumed from 4s. to  10s. per pound. In a humorous poem  called "The Character of a Coffee  House," the various beverages are  thus  described:  "Tl*.. Gallant he for Tea doth call,  The    surer for nought at till,  The   Virtuoso, he cries, 'Hand me  Sorne coffee inixt with Sugar Candy!'  The Player bawls for Chocolate;  All which the Bumpkin wondering .at,  Cries,   'Ho,   my   Masters,   what   d'ye  speak, t  D'ye call for drink in Heathen Greek?  Give me some good old Ale or Beer,  Or elsa I will not drink, I swear.' "  Tea wns, it seems, then considered  rather an effeminate drink, though  'Waller, the poet, wrote some verses  in  praise of it,  in  which  he  says:  "The Muse's   friend, Tea,   does   our  fancy  air;  Repress those valors which the head  invi.de.  And   keep   that   pnh.ee   of  the   sou!  serene."  A Jesuit who crime from China toh!  "Waller how the Chinese made thi.ii  tco., according to the following re  ceipt:  "'To near a pint of tlie infusion,  take two yolks of new-laid eggs and  , h at them very well with as mud1  fine sugar as is suil'eient for thi  quantity of liquor.

If  we have perfect circulation wo will have perfect health.  There is a constant wearing out of the tissues in  every part of tlio body. The blood flowing through the  veins carries off this waste or dead matter, while the  blood coming from the heart through the arteries  brings Die fresh new living' tissue, the essence of tho  food we have digested, to replace what has been carried oil. This constant wearing out and expelling of  the dead matter and the replacing ��������� of It with new  matter, atom by atom, goes on day and night, -until  in about 7 years a complete change has'been effected.  Thus every man and woman has.an entirely different  body in every particle of It from what' he or Bhe had  7 years before.  It sometimes happens, however, from a variety of ���������  causes, that the blood becomes congested In certain  portions of tho body. This means that the blood vessels in these parts become weakened, and the circulation in that section of the body becomes sluggish  and stagnant. -The consequence Is that the dead matter In that part of the body is only partially carried  away, and that but little of the new, vital matter Is  introduced there to build up and strengthen the tissues ���������  and nerves.  This condition invariably exist3 in all cases of female disorders. The dead matter retained in the circulation, which should have been expelled, causea Irritation and inflammation of tho delicate memberane, .  and oppresses thc nerve centres. .This condition is tho  cause of the grievous physical and mental suffering  which accompanies female troubles.  1 To obtain relief It Is evident that the flrstth!ng;to  be done Is to get rid of the dead matter which is bo-  .ing held in the circulation.   If this dead  matter   la ���������  allowed to remain there a species of blood poisoning will result and nature will  endeavor to get rid of It by forming ulcers, tumors, etc., f .  ���������The above explanation will also show why ORANGE LILY is'so successfulln  curing this condllion. It is a local treatment, and Is applied direct to the affected  organs. Its curative elements are absorbed Into the congested tissue, and from  the very slart the dead matter begins to be discharged. A feeling of Immense  relief, l.-oih mental ajid physical, accompanies It, and .the improvement is constant  nnd posl ive. This- feature of the expelling of tho dead matter Is always present  to a greater or less extent, and In somo cases it is so marked as to bo amazing.  Tho case described In the following,letter Is not exceptional:  Dr. Coonley���������I am thankful .to Mrs. F. E. Curruh, your Canadian representative, for my health restored by your wonderful remedy.

A year later I sent fpr him again, und ho .gave me up  to die My husband then sent for another doctor, who performed an operation,  and it'did mo much good, I doctored with him 3 or 4 months, but became so bad  again that I thought I could livo no longer, and I began to Jong, to die. .One day  my husband came home and throw a slip of paper to me with Mrs. Currah s address and told me a lady had advised him to write to her for a .treatment that  would cure mo ���������I said it was too late, that I would die anyway.

Their Origin  The twenty-one wholesale drug firms now united  In the '"National" had all of them lengthy careers,  eouie for fifty to one hundred years, prior to the union.  Each firm had acquired or developed a number of  valuable fonnuhe for medicinal ami toilet preparations,  all of which became thc property of the "National".  Since the union our expert chemists have carefully  gone over these fonnuhe and selected the best for the  NA-DRU-CO line. Every formula hai been carefully  itudied by these experts, improved if possible, and  then thoroughly tested again, in' actual use, before  we consider it good enough to bear the NA-DRU-CO  Trade Mark.  An Example  A good example of what we mean la NA-DRU-CO  Non-ozone for Brain Fag or nervous break-down.  The formula was pronounced the most scientific combination of nerve medicines, but this was enough for  us; we had it tried out "with a dozen different kind of  Brain workers ��������� School Teachers, Lawyers, Bookkeepers���������as well as Society leaders and home workers,  1 and everywhere the result was so good that we adopted  . it aa one of the best of the NA-DRU-CO line.  There am therefore no experiment* among  NA-DRU-CO preparations. We have invested altogether too much time, work and money in the  NA-DRU-CO line to take any chances of discrediting it  with preparations that might not prove satisfactory..  We make absolutely certain that car h preparation is  satisfactory before we endorse it with the NA-DRU-CO  Trade Mark. j  Ask your physician or your druggist about the  firm behind NA-DRU-CO preparations and about the  NA-DRU-CO line. They can tell you, for we. will  furnish them, on request, a full list of the ingredients  in any NA-DRU-CO article.  "Money Back"  If by any chance "you, should not be entirely  satisfied with any NA-DRU-CO article you try, return  the unused portion to the druggist from whom you  bought it and he will refund your money���������willingly,  too, because we return to him every cent- he gives  back to you.  If your druggist should not have the particular  NA-DRU-CO article you ask for in stock he can get  it for you within two days from our nearest wholesale  branch.

Alligators' Tongues  On one occasion,, when travelling  along the west coast of Africa,with an  olsj skipper who had known many  missionaries, but "did not 'see the  use of them," Bishop Taylor-Smith  was obliged to "-endure a string of  taunting questions, such as "What  was the good of spouting at Exeter  Hall" and "What did missionaries  know, anyway?"  At last the bishop could stand it  no longer. Turning to the skipper,  he said: "1 "know you are an export.  Can you tell me the length of an alligator's tongue?"  "Certainly," was the reply, "but  it depends on Uie length of the alligator." ~~  "Very well, then, say an alligator  .fifteen feet lon������. What would be the  length of its tongue?"  "Three feet," wns the answer.  Kill the bishop who had kept alligators and watched their ways, knew  better. "It is evident that you are  not .an aulbority on the west coast of  Africa," be said, "but it is also evident that some people see more in  ten minutes than others in twenty  years. Let me tell you that an alligator has no tongue."  Wasn't a Candidate  Whon Senator Vance was running  for congress, he called on an old negro,  who had in early life served the Vance  i'arri'ly. Asked after his health, the  negro replied, "Mighty po'ly in this  woiT, but it's all right over yander."  "Do you believe in the doctrine of  election ?" asked Vance with great  solemnity.' "It's the doctrine of the  Rible," answered the ok' man. "Uncle  Ephraim, do you think I've been 'elec-1  ted?" asked Vance again.' -"Massa  Zeb, I'd a lettle rather'you wouldn't  draw that question.

Bad Kick From a Horse  Mr. I. S. Kelly, of Markerville, Alta.,  says:- "We have proved Zain-IVuk of  great value on the farm. I was kicked  by a horse and sustained a nasty  wound, which finally turned to an  open sore. This caused me considerable pain, but as soon as Zam-Buk  was applied, I got relief. In a short  time Zam-Buk completely healed the  wound.  "My, father sustained a bird bum on  his leg, which for a long time would  not heal. Zam-Buk healed it, and  brought on a covering of new, healthy  skin all over the wound in a few  days,"  Zam-Buk is nlso a sure cure for eczema, ulcers, bad leg, piles, abscesses,  cold cracks, cuts, scratches, burns,  children's rashes, and all skin diseases.

Last Friday a shock ran around  the world when it became known  that King Edward had passed to  that mysterious Beyond, where  we all look alike. When quite  young we were led to believe that  kings aud princes never died owing  to the number of prayers that we  heard offered up for their safety.  However such is not the case for  we have noticed that the unceasing  march of nature plays no favorites  and no matter how high we' soar,  or how low wc sink upon this mundane sphere death will eventually  elect us to join tlie silent majority.  Our late king was one of the  ablest rulers that ever sat upon the  throne of England. Although a  stickler-for the homage due his  position he was tactful, gracious,  and pre-eminent in the art of diplomacy. He was always for peace,  as was his mother, and wielded  more power with the crowned  heads of Europe than any other-  living personage. He was a manly  Englishman anil that is one of the  greatest compliments you can pay  any man Upon this earth. He was  democratic in impulse and desire,  and love and respect for him ��������� was  buried deep in the hearts of the  British people. He was trusted by  all classes, his aim was to do right,  and his thing words reveal the fact  that he thought that he had performed his duty towards the many  millions of loyal subjects who respected and honored him as a man,  a king, and a gentleman. May the  mantle of the father rest as easily  upon the son is the wish of the  great British natiou.  High Cost of Living.  It is said that it costs the United  States���������that means that it costs  you and mo and all the rest of us  who have the bills to pay���������������1700  every time the big war guns is  fired. That's as much as the  average mechanic can earn in two  years. It,would send mauy a boy  or girl to college for four years.  The day when wo shall end the  enormous economic waste of war  and preparation for it/ is coming  fast.        ^\ ���������  Slaughter of Robins.  Robins are numerousrat Lofton'  Tennessee, and are selling, readily  in the local market at,ten cents a  dozen, says a correspondent to the  Nashville American. It should be  explained that the robins are not  so numerous as they used to be,  for the fact that they sell at ten  cents a dozen has induced many  men and boys to engage in "the  wholesale slaughter of the birds.  Thousands of the robins gather  in the cedars to roost, and hunting  parties go in the night and capture  and kill them in large numbers.  One party caught 2,000 birds in  one night. One hunter caught 377  birds in one tree. It is estimated  that 150,000 birds have been killed  within the last three weeks. It i.s  great sport���������and the robins sell for  ten cents a dozen. That is the  way in which wild bird life is being  protected in some parts of this  great country.  m1-- Store that Sets  If You Waint the Best in Clothes  The Style,  the  Materials,  and the Fife of  Perfect if Craig sells it."  your-.Suit' will be  Large Consignment of Trunks and Suit Cases  P JUST   ARRIVED.    . ������������������  \ '    Our Reputation Depends upon its Satisfactory Service.

It is a journal assaying high in hope, breezy news  and pungent editorials, but, as yet,  the ads are but a knifeblade seam  Hanked by a local poem that is  tough enough to make the late W.  D. Mitchell shed his wings long  enough to make an earthly protest. Jim's new paper has already  done much for the Lucerne. It  has moved the glacier to within  three miles of the; town. When  we flitted through /the shifting  scenes of New Denver . life this  snow;white touristical attraction  was seven Slocan miles away,- The  Record editor has many friends  among the pathfinders of this province'who wish him every success  in the development of his journalistic mine, and trust that the pay-  streak will continue to grow wider  until Jim can wear diamonds and  use dollars for M quads.  Cubs Inseparable.  Tho owner of a .large cattle  ranch in West Texas presented the  fire laddies of a Texas city with  two bear cubs that had been captured on his ranch. Tlie little  fellows were named Bill and  George, after tho donor and his  brother, and were placed in a  small park connected with the  Central fire station. They soon  became a greit attraction, and  were made pete by everyone, especially the children, who brought,  and fed them all kinds of dainties.  When winter came, a little house  was built for them, with doors to  the south, that they might rot  suffer from the cold.  One day George tired of tho  park, and yearning for freedom,  broke loose aud escaped. He was.  soon missed, and a lirem>in lassoed  him aud started back with the unwilling captive. In the -struggle  that ensued, the bear was strangled  to death. Poor little Bill refused  to be consoled. The fruits and  candies'" offered by the children  were left untouched, and he could  not be coaxed out of his den. Ho  showed signs of being sick, and a  veterinarian was c.illed, but without avail, and just a month after  George's death poor little Bill died  of a broken heart.-- He .was .buried  in the park, and many firemen,  policemen and children attended  the funeral, some of them with  suspiciously moist eyes. The little  empty house stands still in the  park, a monument, as it were, to  George and JBill.  " Unequalled-for 'Domestic Use  Dealers in Fresh and Salt Meats, Fish,  and Poultry.

Hun says that a revolution in  America is impossible cwing to the  commonsense of the farmers.  who was a "printer's  an oflice where Mark  Twain was au editorial writer, tells  this anecdote of his habits of work.  "One of rny duties was to sweep  the room where editors worked.  Every day Mark Twain would  give me a nickel to get away from  him. He would rather die in the  dust than uncross his legs. Oue  day he gave me a nickle to dot an  "i" in his copy,for him. He certainly did enjoy life, that man did."  ������Greenwood, is tho home for workingmen of all nations.

A Republic report says": The  Belcher miue elbaed last week, and  the members of the company will  build a smelter at Belcher junction  to smelt its own ores. It .will have  two blast furnaces and will cost  8250,000. The miue has . been  shipping to the smelter.of the Consolidated Mining &��������� Smelting Co.,  at Trail, B.

The copper ore is similar  to the Granby quality, but the  company believes it will have  better returns from its own smelter,  In Greenwood the people arc  following the advice of the bible,  and making no haste to   get   rich.  Skvkntkbn years ago today we  started a paper iu Kaslo. Since  then we have refused 825 for a copy  of its last edition.

Pkoi'IjB fear death because they  are not accustomed to it, and seldom acquire the habit, unless they  live in a town where they do not  advertise.  There are no blanks in a box of  K and H cigars. They all draw  and omit an aroma that perfuineB  the ozone when set on fire. It is  ever a pleasure to follow a man  who is smoking a K and H cigar.  Try one and be convinced.  The Best Way;  The best way to build up a city  is for each' and every mini in it not  to strive to rend  and  tear down.  Whenever a man  in  tho town is  doing well do not try to tear  him  down.    All the residents of a town  ar<) partners not opponent!'.   'In all  liklihood  the more business done  by your rival the more you will do.  Every  gentleman  who treats his  customer honestly, courteously and  fairly, will get his sharo,  and, the  more business that can be secured  by united effort,' the better it will  be for all.    When a town ceases to  grow it commences to dio, and the  more the people try to kill off each  other in  their business and good  name, thn more rapidly will   utter  ruin come to all.    Stand together  for   the   advancement   of   every  citizen.    If a man shows ability to  prosper do not pull him back with  jealousy or weigh him  down   with  cold indifference.
