However, as there were certain private marks on the bell, and  as he put similar private marks on  a bell purchased in Vernon, and as  Mr.  Roderick was   a resident of  Phoenix at 'the time,   he believes  he might   reasonably hope for a  solutron  of this very complicated  case by Mr. Roderick.

Organization, enthusiasm,   loyalty "and untiring work * have achieved the results   which���������<  they ' will ;. always  twhieve^and-perbapa-^f���������ftrlMbe-re^-  markable^things- about the fight  the most notable is the "defeat of  my opponent in his' own city and  riding.    With his own party entrenched in power, with every material inducement for the electors  to support a  government  candidate, with   the   prestige   of  four  years' work in the house, yet he  was beaten : and while I do not  want to say a word against a man  when he is down,  I can be.per-  mitted   to   thank    you  all   most  deeply for supporting my candidature in such a magnificent way.  The victory is owing to many  causes amongst which I place the  following as the most important:  The undoubted sacrifice of Brit-  ith Columbia's interests by Liberal  members who preferred to stand in  with the Ottawa administration : ,  The moral support of the great  Conservative victories in the coast  cities:  The unselfish and loyal support  and generous assistance given by  our own people throughout the  constituency.  To me one of the most satisfactory features about the whole  campaign is the fact that while I  had nothing to promise, nothing to  offer, and made .my appeal on the  grounds of a square deal for B. C.  and a cleaner and healthier public  life, the response wns so strong as to  strengthen one's faith in human  nature and make one realize that  in British Columbia there is iu existence a public sentiment of a  higher type than that usually assumed by tho average politician.  I shall hope to visit Greenwood  before long and to have the pleasure of thanking my many friend*  iu'person. Meanwhile you will, I  trust, assure them that the member whom their work has done so  much to elect nas a greatfui appreciation of all that they have  doue.

It is to be  hoped the bolt will  be used with  discretion, for  sometimes unruly  youngsters can bo bested with kind  words more effectively than with a  leather   strap.

A peculiar occurrence took place  at the mill of the Bowman Lumber  company, RevelBtoke, last week.

This caused  the big flywheel and other heavy  pulleys to burst, causing considerable damage to the machinery and  completely shutting down the  plant.

IT HELPS TO REVIVE FOLKS.  - Mr. B. Feels Happy After Drinking  Stuff and Says He'll Order It by tha  Barrel���������Too Much of It Knocks Him  Out, However.  [Copyright, IMS, by T. C. McClure.]  About niiilnflornoon the'other sultry  day a boy appeared at the residence of  Mr. Bowser with a gallon jug and said  io Mrs. Bowser:  "This is a present from the butcher  to Mr. Bowser, and he says you must  put it in tlie icebox."  "What is it?" was asked.  "It's spring water lo revive folks up  In hot weather."  When the boy had departed Mrs.  Bowser drew the cork and took a long  sniff, mul a look of doubt nnd suspicion spread over her face asshepourort  u liltle of the water out in a glass and  tasted it. Thero was a tasto that seemed familiar, but sho put the jug on ice  ���������without meddling further. At G o'clock  Mr.  Bowser came homo dragged out.  ill'..  DOWSEK DUANK TWO IiAISGE GLASSES.  ���������IIis collar was only a damp rag around  his nock, and liis shirt bosom had gone  limp. Ho had missed the car and been  obliged to walk eight blocks, and as he  could not overhaul and murder the conductor and as no tramp had accosted  him between his house and the corner  he had come home to take it out of  Mrs. Bowser. lie had thrown down his  liat and jerked off his coat and was  preparing for words when she said:  "A boy left a. jug of what he called  C. M. W. here this afternoon, and I  put it in the icebox. He said the butcher sent it."  "Then hurrah! He told me three or  four days ago that he would sand it,  but I didn't depend upon him. By  George, but I'm glad it's here!"  "Why, the butcher's got a farm with  ti mountain on ft called Chickadee  mountain. On top of the mountain is a  spring of ice cold water. It has strange  medicinal <iualities. A pint of it will  revive a man on a hot day more than  two gallons of wine. I've been almost  ji.ayod out with the heat today, and  now is the time to take it."  The jug wns hauled out of the icebox, and Mr. Bowser drank two large  glasses without stopping to breathe but  once. His face was a picture of good  nature as lie sat down to the dinner  table and said:  "I can feel that clear down to ray  toes already. Wonderful thing���������very  wonderful! Tho butcher has got millions in that spring if he ouiy knew it.  Why, I wouldn't know that tho thermometer had been above 70 today. I  think I'll try another glass. Yum,  yum!" ,,  ���������Mrs. Bowser looked dubfous and  thoughtful, and as Mr. Bowser turned  to his plate again he continued:  "Tomorrow I shall order that spring  water by the barrel, and as soon as it  t-omes I shall insist on your drinking  it with me. It is the purest that nature  can yield. How many germs do you  lliink we liave been drinking with every glass of city water?"  "Five or six, perhaps."  ��������� "Five or six! The number is 1,875,-  iZ'-}, and each and every germ is capable of starting a case of rheumatism or  typhoid fever. The wonder is that we  nre alive. I calculate that I have taken  Into my system during the past year  over (JOO.000,000 germs. Isn't it a miracle that I am still on earth?"

He didn't go, however,  until lie had taken another glass of  mifure's purest and best and carefully  returned the jug to tho icebox. Ho  wanted to go out and sit on thc front  steps, but in reply Mrs. Bowser said:  "I think l\'o cooler right here, and,  besides, I want to talk with you. Do  you think of trading the house and lot  for a farm?"  "Do I? Do I think? ,Do I think of  trading for a farm?" he repented In a  high pitched voice, and then after a  hearty laugh he continued:  "No, lovey dovey, I don't think.  Your hubby is no farmer.

Mrs. Bowser filed various objections,'  but they were set aside, and Mr. Bowser went down and helped himself.  Tho cook saw him pouring from the  jug, and he smiled and winked at her  and said her wages should be raised  $4 a month.' When ho returned to tho  sitting room his gait was uncertain  and lie was reaching out for tilings to  hang on to as he walked. When he had  finally got seated in a rocking chair  he said:  "Greatest water ou tho face of /.he  earth. Never heard of anything like  It. Shay, Misshus Bowsher, let's havo  a game of cards tonight.

One Who Had Suffered for Years Cured by Dr. Williams' Pink  ,/\ Pills  The symptoms of stomach trouble  vary. Some victims have a ravenous  appetite, while others loathe tlie  sight of food. Often there is a feeling as of weight on the chest, a full  feeling in the throat. With others  there is an intense pain and feeling  of nausea after eating.- Sometimes  gas presses on the' heart and leads  the sufferer to think he has heart  disease. Sick headache is. another  frequent and^dislrcssing symptom.  Mr.     Alex.     McKay,      McLellan'k I  Mountain,   N.   S.,   says:���������"For   years/  t was  a great sufferer from indigestion,    wliich was gradually    growing  worse  and  worse,  and  it    would   bo  impossible" for mo to tell how much  suffering  I    endured.     At 'different  times   I   had   treatment  from    three  good doctors Jbut -it did not help mo  in the  least.    Then  I  began  trying  all sorts of advertised medicines and  took  ton packages of one   medicine  specially intended for dyspepsia, but  with no  better results.    I had practically  come to regard myself as incurable, and to feel tliat I would  be  i continuous sufferer, when one day  [ read in a newspaper of the cure of  indigestion   through   the   use   of   Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, and I made up  my mind to give Uiom a trial.   I had  used   nearly   five   boxes   before   they  began to'help mo, but I do not wonder nt this as my case was so bad. 1  used in all a dozen boxes of the pills,  and they cured mo completely.   I can  nov   eat  anything wo  raise  on.  the  farm for man lo cat and have    no  longer  the pains  and  discomfort    I  had endured for years.   It is several  years now since I was cured, and   I  have never felt a symptom of indigestion since.    I am well known    in  this locality and you are quite at liberty to use what I say in tlie   hope  that it will benefit some other sufferer."

One of the first instance!! of filibustering occurred in 1S05 just after the  Impeachment trial of the Hon. Samuel  Chase, one o* the associate justices of  the supreme court.   A quarrel arose  over the payment of witnesses.   The  house of representatives would pass no  bill which "provided for the payment  of those summoned by Chase.    The  senate would pass no bill which did  not, and a conference followed.   Each  refused to yield, and the bill was lost.  John  Randolph  then  attempted  Id  the closing hours  of the session  to  have the witnesses for the managers  of the trial paid out of the contingent  fund of the house.   But the Federalists  were ready.    They hurried from the  room, and when the vote was taken  the   speaker   announced   no   quorum.  Members  were  thereupon  summoned  from the lobby and committee rooms  Hardly were they in their seats when  a message from the president was announced, and while the clerk was reading it the  Federalists again left the  room, so that when the resolution was  n  second  time called  up  there was  again no quorum.   Once more the sergeant at nrms went Into the lobby,  and once more tlie members came' In.  But nn enrolled bill was reported, nnd  while the speaker was signing it the  Federalists  n  third  time slipped out.

Little  trays were produced���������tiny boxes full  of; rice, bowls containing weird rood-'  stuffs,' pink, white and green; seaweed  on rice cukes, raw fish and nameless  yellow condiments, tea in microscopic  cups, of course, with no milk or sugar.  The Japanese cannot understand Europeans putting milk la their tea, as,  according  to  them,   it  has  a  strong  smell.   The children .were dressed and  undressed during the entr'actes,  and  people smoked, slept, ate, talked and j  fanned themselves.   It was certainly a  great contrast to see a little "mus-me1  such as Pierre Loti describes, daintily  dressed In the gayest of kimonos and  emartest  of obis,   sitting  between a  cooly wearing nothing but a loose cotton jacket and an old hag nursing a  baby.   ������ J though It was true that most  of the men had little on and the thermometer was 85 degrees, tho atmosphere  was  not impossible,  as  I am  sure would hive been the case in a  European theater under similar circumstances.   The plays have usually fourteen or fifteen acts and last all day and  sometimes two.   This particular one,  not  having an actress such as Sadf  Yiicco *o interpret it, was quite unintelligible   to  me,  but  I  admired  the  grace of the actresses, their easy movements when dancing and the way they  managoil their tight clothes.

The Plot to Rob Teddington ofthe Blue  Ribbon In 1851���������Leander's Missing  Head���������A Dramatic Episode���������Winners Foretold In Dreams.  If It were possible to write the full  and true history of the Derby It would  contain some startling revelations of  strange doings behind the scenes of  whiclu the public has little suspicion  and no actual knowledge.  There Is, for instance, 'little doubt  that a very different ,talo would have  been told of Teddlngton's Derby but  for the prompt action of his widp  awake owner. Sir Joseph Hawley.  When the Kentish baronet attended  the York-spring meeting of 1851 he  was amazed to find the bookmakers  eager to lay odds to any amount  against his colt, who was looked on as,  a certain winner of the blue ribbon a,  few weeks later. Sir 'Joseph at once  scented mischief, nnd, leaving the  "course, ho traveled as fast as relays  of swift horses could take him to his  training quarters, where he communicated his suspicions to Alec Taylor, his  trainer.  As the result of their,deliberations  Teddington was at once removed to  another, box, placed under tho charge  of a different boy and a strict watch  kept over him night and day. Whatever scheme was on foot, to disable thc  horse was thus' effectually checked,  Teddington soon resumed his place-as  fiz'st favorite in the betting and, as everybody expected, won the Derby with  ease. . " ���������  ���������  Another mystery .which has not been  solved to this day is-associated with  Leauder and that memorable Derby ol  S1S44. It "was more than suspected thai  Leander was a four-year-old, but then-  was uot sufficient evidence on which  to base an objection to his running. In  the race his fetlock was broken by a  kick from Running Rein, and he was  effectually placed hors de combat. He  was shot and buried, but when a party  of sportsmen who wished to test theii  suspicions dug up his body at dead of  night they found that the head, whicb  alone could settle the matter, was gone.  Ratan, the second favorite for this  race, was made safe.by a cunningly  devised bolus, but who administered  It was never discovered, and, to crown  this Derby as the most shady and  fraudulent on record, Running Rein,-  who came In first, was found' to be  none other than Maccabeus, a four-  year-old, and thus an impostor of the  first water. But when It became neces  sary to produce the horse for an ex  amlnalion by experts it was found that  lie, like Leander.'s telltale head, had  been spirited away.    .  In connection with Running Rein, by  the way, a dramatic story is told. A  Captain Osborne had backed- Orlando  for a very heavy sum, and when Running Rein came in first he was.faced  with the alternative of blowing out  his brains or being declared a defaulter. He-was just on the point of choosing death rather than dishonor when a  note was placed in his hand. "Running Rein," ran tho missive, which  was from a friendly tout, "is an impostor, and ho won't get tho Derby  stakes. Buy up all the bets "on Orlando  you can get, and you will make a fortune."  The captain put away his revolver,  followed the tout's advice and, Instead  of providing work for the undertaker,  found himself ������1S,000 in pocket.  Few horses have ever started a hotter favorite for the Derby than McGregor in 1S70. So rosy were- his  chances that odds of 0 to 4 were laid  on him to ail enormous amount, and  tho money was considered as good as  won. To tho consternation, however,  of his backers, he seemed unable to  move freely in tlie race and finished a  bad fourth behind horses who were  not in the same century with him.  There was no doubt whatever that  JIacgrogor had been drugged, but who  the rascal was who did the dastardlj  trick Is ns much a mystery today as It  was at the time.  It is of this race that the following  remarkable story is told: During the  night before the race a jockey called  Swift saw the finish of the Derby In a  dream. He saw Kingcraft, which he  recognized, pass tho post a winner by  a length and n half, followed by a  dark brown horse which ho could not  Identify nnd with Maegregor, the favorite, a bad fourth. In spite of the  Jeering of his friends, to whom he told  the story, he backed Kingcraft for  every sovereign ho could raise, and, to  Ids delight as to the disgust of the  It Is the First Thousand Dollars That  ���������Counts.  "The ' thing "that counts," said a  man of independently large means,  accumulated by hard work, saving  and wise investments, "is the first  thousand dollars. When you've ��������� got  that _ amount together you are i b������  ginning to get somewhere, and witn  that start you will want to keep on  The red ink interest entries that you  seo put down in your "savings bank  book twice a year will strike you vei */  pleasantly indeed. ' As interest on  your thousand dollars you'll get $35  or,$40 in a year. Your money has  begun earning money for you.  "You've got,an income now, and  you'll want to add to it. You will  leave that interest in the bank, to  be added to your principal, and now  your interest will begin to draw interest, and,-to be sure, you will keep  right on adding to your principal,  too, and every six months you'll see  those red figures growing bigger and  bigger, pretty figures to contemplate,  and you'll keep right along saving.  But the thing that really counts is  the first thousand dollars. Get that  and you're all right, and you'll always be glad you saved it.  "For' thore really is nothing like  financial independence or like having at least some money laid by.  Then if you want -money you've got  it.

If  you've got money in the bank you  can go thore and get it. There might  come a time when you would need  money for'your family or for yourself  very much. It's a grand thing to  have it where you can get it.  "There's nothing mean about being  saving and accumulating money. On  the contrary, it is every man's duty  to make himself financially independent. I don't-mean at all that a  man wants' to set out to accumulate  great wealth. There is no great fun  in that: .

In-coal mining, as in other trades,  there are many tricks played. "Seams  below three feet are paid extra tonnage, generally a penny per toiuextra  for each inch in the /eduction of the  thickness of the seam. Certain days  are set apart for the purpose of measuring, and many schemes are resorted to by. the miner to make the  measurement as low as possible. Thus,  according to the inequalities or irregularity of the floor and roof, a place  may measure 3 feet one day and the  next only 2 feet 9 nches. The miner  takes advantage of this fact by letting his place stand for a whole shift,  and sometimes a day, .when he comes  to a reduction in the .thickness of  the coal seam, and it pays him, too.  In other eases stone bands run in  ���������the seam of coal, and they vary in  thickness also, but the miner is paid  extra tonnage for the increase in the  thickness of the band.' Thus, you  see that.it means a considerable addition to his income to obtain an  increased measurement.  A popular trick among mine managers is" to "work the near and: most  'accessible coal .in the mine, with no  regard to system so long as they succeed in obtaining a large output of  coal. Having worked all the best districts, they look out for another situation, and you will understand the  position of the next manager and  the enormous difficulties and expense  to work the mine. ���������  The skyscraper' had at last reached  the limit.

A  smile spread over his face as he read  the preliminary remarks .about his  glorious services to his country, his  many active engagements with the  enemy; but suddenly he 'stopped :  "This battle-scared warrior "  Cut the colonel could read no further. In a furious rage, he drove off  to the newspaper office, and demanded a public apology. This was immediately promised, and regrets tendered for the mistake. ���������  The next morning his feelings may  be imagined as he read:  "'We regret that through a printer's  error, yesterday we styled Colonel  Proudem as a 'battle-scared warrior.'

The Joke  runs like this: In the early days ofthe  camp, when baths cost $2, after the  man who had elected this luxury had  finished, as a matter of economy the  water had to be put to some use, so  It was offered to a second bather at'a  reduced   price,  $1,   then   again  to  a  third for 50 cents and to a fourth for  "two  bits."

If she didn't and needs  positive evidence of what thc stimulant  Is doing to her skin, let her put a corner of a white handkerchief In liquid  coffee and watch the stain that Immediately appears. Precisely this same  change takes place in her complexion,  though the yellowness does not show  as quickly. Eventually, though, this  kind of stain Is bound to make its way  Into her skin, because as the liquid  ({oes through her svstera and is absorbed it gets into the pores and by them  Is spread through the skin. The result  Is a dull muddiness of color that is not  half so often sallowness as it Is the  effect of the coffee habit  Tea has the same effect in a lesser degree.  Few women, however, can get along  without one or the other, and there is  no reason why both should not be taken  In moderation.

An Italian scientist proposes to sap-  ply a safety valve for Vesuvius by  boring a tunnel In the base of the  mountain and letting the lava escape  into the sea.

Janotha took  upou herself to write and inform tho  dlviiie Sarah that she had committed a  great breach of the laws of courtesy by  her neglect to acknowledge the gift of  the queen.  Mme. Sarah, always original, thought  of what she should do. The queen's  birthday was imminent, so the great  tragedian dispatched to Mme.

The Toronto News says that  Laurier has become a professional  trader in race feeling, and appeals  to French sentiment with a cunning that is really wonderful.  Wk are still savages with a  slight coating of veneer. This is  plainly seen just after an election  when tlie winning side will dance  and shout like a lot of painted Indians who havtr just captured a lot  of hirsute appendages from the  enemy.  The city election is not far  dis-  distant and it is about  time to be  looking for suitable  material  for  next year.   Tn a  city  like Greenwood, dependent almost wholty on  the  men   who  work  in the mines  for its  trade,   there should be the  utmost   harmony   been   the   mon  and the  business  interests.    This  hnrmony can be assisted materially  by a broad-minded and progressive,  aldermanic board.    Very  little  of  the prosperity, of Greenwood depends upon whether a. plank is put  in the sidewalk on Kimberley avenue, a load of sand on gold street,  a 12-foot ladder for the fire  brigade, or the many other equally  weighty questions that occupy the  whole   attention   of   the   council  for three or four  huvrs every fortnight during the year.
