 VOL. 4.���������NO. 44.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1901.  $2.00 PER   YEAR.  Death By Ills Own. Hand.  Word was received in town Monday  that J. Robertson Barr had committed  suicide, near Three Forks earh' that  morning. Barr was. in Sandon last week  drinking-freely, and becoming boisterous was taken to the police station on  Friday night. lie was liberated the following morningwith a reprimand and immediately left town. It is gener liy  understood that Mr. Barr was subject to  ,fits of insanity, and his actions seem to  bear out the truth in the statement.  Some months ago he started  a small  men's   furnishing  store   here   on Reco  .avenue, and after doing business for a  short time, locked up the premises one  morning   and   left   for parts unknown.  About eight weeks later lie was found  to be in Argenta, and nothing more was  heard of him until he appeared in the  city last week and was drinking heavily.  xAfter his incarceration in the city  jail, for his behaviour, he went to Three  Forks and was staying at one' the mines  near there. About 3 o'clock he told the  man who occupied the same bed with  him, that he was going to get a cup of  cold coffee, and left the. room. 'Aj-few  minutes after he was heard sharpening  a knife, but nothing was thought of this  as it supposed he was do so to oblige the  cook. Ori hearing an unusual noise some  time later, some ot the miners hurried  down to ascertain the cause and found  Barr in the pantry.  The sight that meet their eves almost']  rooted them to'the spot with horror.The  unfortunate man  was sitting in a chair  with his hands clasped at his neck, from  which the blood was pouring, and suffer-,  ing thedreadful agonies of death. He expired in a few minutes.   On e^ami nation-  it was found he had almost severed his  head form the body with a huge butcher,  knife, which lay   dripping   with   blood'  beside him.  The news startled the people here  when it came, but it is the opinion of  manv that he committed the deed in a  temporary lit of insanity. Mr. Barr was  well and favorably known in the Slocan,  and his untimely end under the circumstances attending it, are  to be deplored.  His remains wer.e interred in the New  Denver cemetery on Tuesday.  THE LOCAL GRAFT.  HINES AND TUNING...  >r  has  The   Evening   Star at Rossland  closed down indefinetiy.  The Tamarac will start up shortly  with a large force of men.  The Sunset, Jackson Basin, shipped  -10 tons of ore from Whitewater this  week.  The first payment on a bond has been  made on the Republic group near  Slocan.   ,  When the now machinery now being  installed in the Rossland Le Roi mine is  in working order, the value of the average daily output is estimated at $17,000.  The Hillside Co. have decided to  place a limited amountof treasury stock  en the.market, the proceeds of which  will be used for the purpose of carrying  un development, this season.  The St. Eugene mine at Moyie closed  iluwn this week, throwing 300 men out  employment. The cause ia assigned to the  luw price of lead and the uncertainty of  i lie silver market. There never was  tuore ore in sight than at present in tho  history of that famous property, and no  doubt the smelter difficulty is "the chief  cause in the matter.  The None Five made another rich  si i ike last Saturday, and which is a continuation a rich find of some three  weeks ago. This time in nine feet of  extra tunnelling the ore body widened  t<> 16 inches, which is the best showing  the property has made for some time.*  .r.t present nine men are at work, and  staff will be largely increased when  t lie company can get a proper supply of  water,  Harry Campeau has a contract at the  Star for sacking ore.  C. .D; Hunter returned to Phoenix the  first part of the week.  Born on Arpil 5th\ to Mrs. Wm.  Bennett, of this city, a son.  R. F. Green passed through here on  Sunday from Victoria on his way to  Kaslo.  The snow disappeared rapidly this  week, causing an exchange of runners for  wheels.  Isaac Crawford has removed from  Nelson to Phoenix, where he has become manager of one of the big stores of  that place.  The refinery delegation and the Pay-  sneak hog car arrived iii Ottawa last  Wednesday.  Mr. Burton while at work broke his  leg last Wednesday and was at once removed to his residence.  '"'Mr. Aubrey Sandford, deputy post  master, left on Wednesday for San  Francisco, where he will-reside in the  future. '������������������������������������....  The fishing season is drawing near  and anything you want such as rods,  reels, Hies, trolls, lines, in fact anything in the line of fishing tackle can be  secured at Cliffe's bookstore.  Before tlie departure of Mr. and Mrs.  Sandford to their new field of labor, the.  ladies of the Methodist church will give  a grand farewell entertainment. There  will be a short programme of good music,  after which ice cream, cake and coffee  will be served. '��������� \  ��������� Miss .1. C. McDonald, a graduate nurse  of"Lowell, Mass., has been; added to the  hospital staff this week.., Miss McDonald spent some time in the Winnipeg  and other large hospitals before coming  .here and is very efficient in:her profession. .''"..���������"���������-  Mr. Thos. McGuigan left for Portland,  Oregon, Sunday noon on receiving  the news of his brother's accident, and  on his arrival at Nelson he got a telegram tothe effect that his brother was  not fatally hurl and only went as far as  Spokane.  The Sandon Senior and Junior hockey  teams were photographed separately by  R. H. Trueman. on Wednesday. The  'Juniors, who are the champions in their  class of British Columbia, were taken  with their popular manager,, W. Walins-  ley, of the Filbert, the coveted cup and  their bull-dog mascot.  ���������The-members of the band were invited  out to the Payne on Wednesday evening. A hand car was placed at., their  disposal, and all piled on about S o'clock,  arriving their in a few minutes. The  mountains re-echoed the music���������principally Irish airs, and a gentle breeze  wafted it towards Three Forks and Now  Denver. They were royally entertained  by Mr. John l')ajy and "Mr*. Zwieky. and  returned to town elated about 10:30.  The warm rain of Thursday will prove  a blessing in many ways. Besides  clearing some of the streets of the accumulation of the winter's refuse, the  niountians of the snow, to let the beautiful wild flowers, which abound in profusion around here, bloom again, it will  enable the mints whose concentrators  have not been half working on account  of the scanty of water, to start up full  blast.  Appropriate Easter services were held  in the Methodist and Catholic, churches  last Sunday. In the former Rev. A. M.  Sandford delivered two very feeling sermons fitting to tho occasion,and the choir  sang hymns speciallyprepared during the j  service. In the latter the statue of St.  Joseph was dedicated, High Mass celebrated and a touching sermon preached  by Rev. Father Cote. Miss M. McKinnon presided at the organ, whichWas  supplemented bv violin and clarionet,  played by Thos. Duffy and L. O'Neal.  During the Offertory '"Regina Ceoli"  was well rendered by the choir.  Tom Starkey returned home to Nelson  this week. ���������  Miss M. English spent her Easter  holidays in Kaslo.  E. J. Robie, of Nelson, is spending a  few days in the city.       ,  A. B.

Two well-known citizens, Jas. Hill  and Scot Fleming left Tuesday morning  for Bridge river, where they will spend  the summer prospecting.  Piatt Bros., who had the contract for  the flume extention, withdrew their  tender on Thursday. The water raising  too high to permit them to finish the  work on time.  R. H. Trueman, ���������;��������� photographer, has  had to extend his stay here a few days  longer than he expected on account of  so many sittings. All desiring photos  taken should call beiore Monday, April  15th, as he leaves after that date.  A pleasant social will be held in the  Reading Room next Thursday evening,  April 18th. All kinds of g'ames and  indoor amusements will be provided,  and refreshments served by. the ladies.  An enjoyable evening is assured.  The, band boys dance was largely  attended on Monday evening, Duffy's,  orchestra furnished the music. A good  supper was served. The' dance -netted  the band $40 after all expenses in connection were paid.  A slide of considerable proportions  pushed down the Payne mountain on  Thursday afternoon and for a while  it looked serious for the west end. Fortunately it came to a standstill at the  K. '&. S. main line and the only damage  done was the blockading of the overland  line to Cody.  The. Paysneak in its last issue refers  to the passenger coaches of the K. & S.  Ry. as hog cars. It would not be a bad  idea for the officials of that road to look  into the matter, but,then everybody  knows it came from a Boer, and he had  to equeal because they are so much superior to his own grunting quarters.  The Ladies Aid of the Presbyterian  church gave an entertainment on behalf  of that organization, in the Miners'  Union Hall, on Thursday evening. The  social function was successful from start  to finish, and was the means of placing  before the Sandon publio quite a number  of very acceptable amateur artists. Tt  would be an injustice to particularize  the concert, as the participants, one and  all, very creditably rendered their various parte.  The are seven patients in the hospital  just now. Harry Payzant, who has been  very low with typhoid fever, is slowly  recovering. R. Cooper, Thos. Wilkinson  and Dan McGiliis, ailing from slight  attacks of eickness, were admitted this  week. R. T. Gale, a timbermen at the  Star mine, cut an ugly gasdi in his foot  while at work Wednesday. He was  taken to the hospital, and is getting on  nicely. J.Allan, E, Kellett and Wm.  Dixon having recovered from their sickness, left the institution a few dayB ago.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following shipments of ore were  i shipped from here this week:  ' Mine. Tons.  American Boy  21  Ivanhoe...  20  Trade Dollar...  20  Last Chance  IS  Total,  Billiard and Pool Contests.  For some time past a series of billiard  and pool games haye been played in the  Reco hotel, which terminated last Saturday evening. The contestants were  many and arranged in classes, and the  games well contested and watched with  interest-  In the billiard contest Col. Pierson  captured the first prize, the choice of a  new set of expensive cues, and E. A.  Hall second, a box of Franklin cigars.  Wm. Wilson took first prize in the  pool contest, it being second choice of  the cues, and Chas. Pyphers who carried off the other prize, is contentedly  smoking a box of Franklin cigars.  Andy'Grierson took the "booby" prize  a bottle of "catch up."  A. W.Wright played a game for points  with J. M. Harris, the former was to allow the latter 13^ points, and Mr. Harris won by }<( of a point.  Harry Campeau in a closely contested  pool game with Col. Pearson, fired a  shot just as time was called, scoring a  point and evening up with the Colonel.  Considerable discussion arose as to  whether it be counted or, not. It was  left for the umpire, whose decison was  final, to decide, and he discounted it,  declaring Col. Pearson the winner, who  later was defeated by Wm. Wilson.  Wm. Hoods acted as umpire throughout the series and his decisions were  fair and impartial.  Hotel Arrivals For the Week.  Denver���������J. Williams, Fernie; C. McDonald, Slocan; G. E.Green, Alamo;  H.

He was gone a long, long time, and  when he came back he found her still  ready.  I have come back after many years,  he said to her, aa he took her hand  in greeting.  She had J earned eomethLng in tho  years since she had seen him last.  Well, for goodness' sake, Henry, sho  exclaimed fervidly, why don't you take  them ? I'm 35 now.

When King Edward VH. was a boy  he very often went down from Windsor to Eton, where he had more than  one friend at the school. It was by  the express wish of the Queen that  when the Prince of Wales visited the  college he. was to be- received with no  ceremony. This was literally carried  out on one occasion, when the young  Prince, wandering away from the Gen-  tleman-in-Waiting was suddenly  greeted by a boy with the familiar  question: "What's your name ? Where  do you board ? Who's your tutor ?" The  Prince saw the situation and gravely  replied: "My name is Wales; I board  at Windsor Ca3tle; and my dame���������  not my tutor���������Ls the Queen." Then he  shook hands -vith the inquirer, who  so far from being abashed, merely remarked, " You're in very good quarters, sir."  TORONTO'S WIRES.

The length of wire used in the  transaction of Toronto's rapid transit  and despatch business is sufficient to  run a cable of our own around the  world, with a branch line to the  North Pole. It would be long enough  to follow the route of the first Canadian contingent to South Africa, and  return, make a fence around the whole  of the Transvaal and Orange River  Colony, and still have enough wire  all the (Boers captured dur-  war.  If all the electric wires in Toronto were struog together their combined length would reach a distance  of over 24,000 miles.' Of this the "Hello Girl" controls more than one half,  the Bell Telephone Co.'s mileage being  placed roughly at 13,500 miles, while  the telegraph companies use 3000  miles between tlwm. The Toronto Electric and the Incandescent JLLght  Companies require nearly 6000 miles  of wire for the transmission of light  and power, while the Toronto Sti-eel  Railway uses only-205 miles in the operation of the 85 miles of trolley road  in the.city. The Toronto Fire Department's signal boxes require 80 miles  of wire, and the Police Patrol Department about 45 miles. A force of over  200 men is employed constantly keeping the various lines in repair and  erecting new lines throughout the  oity.  INFORMATION WANTED.

He who fears God need never fear  man.  You cannot do God's work with the  devil's weapons.  The approbation of self is: seldom  born of the approval of conscience.  Christianity is to the Christless as  the science of optics to the  blind.  Charity draws from an exhaustless  fountain; the more it gives, the more  it has to    give.  It is hopeless consulting the compass of conscience when you lay the  loadstone of lust beside it.  When wounded in battle horses' are  attended to as soon as possible. , A veterinary officer with assistants follow  close on the fighting line, and those  animals with only slight injuries are  collected together aud sent to the veterinary hospitals, established at the  fix;ed camps.

Smith, of this place, reports two  cases of Kidney Disease cured by  Dodd's Kidney Pills, which are very  striking testimonials to the merit of  this great .medicine. The subjects are  Mr. .Caleb Rivard and Mr. Joseph  Hamel.  Mr. Rivard suffered from incontinence of the urine day and night. He  was so worried  by  the  discharge  of  urine   at   night,   that  he    purchased  from Dr. Smith a rubber instrument  to protect his bed.   Dr. Smith advised  Kidney Pills.   He  bought  some    and  soon reported to  the doctor  that he  was quite.cured.   Tho trouble had entirely  disappeared.  Mr. Hamel writes of his case :���������  " I suffered with Kidney Disease for  three or  four years so  bad   that    I  would have to lay off work  two   or  three days every  week.   I was con-  . tinually sick, and was. forced to walk  like an old man, being ail bent with  the pain.   I had lost all my  energy.  I heard of Dodd's Kidney Pills.   After': I had  taken  a few  dosos,  I was  delighted   to  find  myself  improving.  Thus  encouraged,  I   continued,    and  after the third  box my trouble had  entirely  disappeared.   I   could  stand  and  walk  upright  without  any pain  or stiffncss���������\\;hatever. This is over six  months ago," and I have not had the  slightest return of    tho    trouble   or  pain."

SATURDAY,   APRIL 13,  1901.  TAXES ON PERSONAL PROPERTY.  Continuing an  article in  last week's  issue on this subject, it must be apparent to the government, the time is not  distant in which the right to tax all personal  property and   incomes   must   be  turned over to  the municipalities,   as  well as real estate.   The only reason the  government can advance for retaining  personal property taxation to the present is the necessity for revenue.   There  is no precedent for retention, as all the  other provinces of Confederation have  turned it over long ago.   The  plea  for  retention is a very poor one, as the revenue got that way does  not  amount to  more  than   60  cents   per  head of the  population of the country.  The injustice of such a course is self  evident to any and all who give the matter a passing thought. As a rule municipal assessors assess on something like  actual value, while provincial officers  having so much ground to cover assess  at random���������they rarely secure more  than one-third value, and their rate of  taxation���������one-half of one per cent, is i  not more than one quarter of that of J  municipalities on real estate property!  the country over, and no man can ad- ���������  vance a single reason to show why realty  and personal property should not pay  the same rates of taxation. Lower rates  for the holder of personal property than  those charged the holder of realty, simply means class legislation in its worst  form. If the government has to have  the trifle it gets from this source, there  are a dozen other ways of getting the  amount without imposing class legislation or hardships on any one. If chattel property was turned over to municipalities, local officials would get a better  estimate of values than provincial officers do, and the councils would impose  the same rates they place on realty.  This would equalize the matter all  around. It would also facilitate tax  payments on realty, a thing very much  required, as chattels would be held for  the realty taxes.  It appears to us every corporation in  the province ought to press for this  change at once, and hurry up the day in  which many of their financial disabilities would be properly relieved.

BOWNE,   Chemists, Toronto.  A NATURAL BORN PHILOSOPHER.  The Bluestreak often goes into metaphysics  and  other   physics,   many  of  which become  nauseating   to  men   of  common sense.     Because  the   miners  unions favor state ownership of railways  and    other    large  public   utilities,   it  argues, "to be m the swim," that the  state ought to handle all public and private industries, even to the proposed  refinery, and "reasons" it  out   that   if  Gooderham   and   Blackstock build   it,  they will pocket, in the proposed bonus  of $5 a ton for   refining  lead  in  three  years,  more than  the refinery will co8t(  It places the cost of the refinery at $250,-  000,and the proposed bonus of $5 a ton on  17,000 tons a year for three years says  that in the company will realize $255,000.  or $5,000 more than the institution will  cost, ergo the bonus should no be given.  In  all   such    matters   business    men.  Bluestreaks,   of course,   excluded   calculate 20vper cent, per annum for interest   on   money, wear  and   tear on machinery, &c, before they consider the  profits.   The Bluestreak considers the  rjrofits,    however,    without    reference  whatever to these charges on earnings.  They, however amount to $50,000 a year  or $150,000 for  the  three years, which  inust come out of the bonus of $255,000,  leaving $105,000.   Now, as a Canadian  refiner will have to compete in England  with Spanish, Australian, American and  other   products   that   pay lower  transportation   rates   than  he does, he 'must  deduct, his   excessive charges from the  $105,000 bonus remaining before he has  any of it for profit.   Again it often haps  pens he may have to carry the product-  of his refinery three, six, or even twelve  months  before the market is favorable  to sell, and that means inteiest on  a lot  of capital tied up, before he can count  on any of the remaining portion of the  bonus   his  own.   The Bluestreak with  its usual characteristics, refuses to place  any of   these   circumstances before its  readers,  when condemning  the bonus  principle.   This would be too much fair  play for that print.and would be placing  too many facts in intelligence before the  public, for its'deluding designs.  A man -who has been running a race  with steam and electricity for years,  finds himself suddenly stopped. It  seems as if a cold hand. clutched his  heart. His brain whirls ; he can hardly  see. "What is it?" he asks himself a*  the attack passes.  If his question  meets a right answer, he'll be told  that his seizure is  a warning to pay  more attention to  his stomach, which  is already deranged  by irregular meals  and rich foods.  Doctor Pierce's  Golden Medical  Discovery cures  diseases of the  stomach and organs of digestion  and nutrition. It  eliminates from the  blood disease  breeding poisons.  It makes the blood  rich and pure, and  furnishes a foundation for sound,  physical health.  "About ten years  ago I began to have  trouble with my  stomach," writes Mr.  Wm. Connolly, of 535  Waluut Street, Lorain,  Ohio. "It got so bad  that I had to lay off  quite often���������two and  three days in a week. I have been treated by  the best doctors in this city, but got no help.  Some said I had cancer of the stomach, others  catarrh, others dyspepsia. Then I wrote to  you for advice. You advised the use of your  'Golden Medical Discovery' and 'Pleasant Pellets.' These medicines I have taken as directed.  , I commenced to get hotter from the start, and  have not lost a day this summer on account of  my stomach. I feel tip-top, and better than I  have for ten years."  Keep the bowels healthy by using Dr.  Pierce's Pellets.    They don't yripe.  TH AT CELESTIAL GENIUS.  The following item actually originated  from the small brain of the Chinaman  editor who wields the uhopstick for a pen  in the Paysneak:  "McGuigan, B.C.. April 5th. [2:30  p.m.] Tho editor of the scab organ has  just passed here in a hog car. When  last seen he was yammering thru the  bars: "Cash it! Cauh it! Cash it!"  Oh, no! It's only Poland Chinas ride  in hog cars, and the Paysneak Celestial  having rode in nothing else, imagines  everybody does the same. He never had  courage enough to make such an assertion when the editor of the Review was  here to answer him, but with his amazing ignorance, the onlv qualification, he  has a superabundance of, lie thought he  would sneak around in his absence and  say anything he pleased without fear of  contradiction. But, no. Mr. Cliffe knew  only too well the viper he had to contend with; he expected a low, mean,  contemptible attack on the part of the  Paysneak mouthpiece, and made arrangements to meet him accordingly.  The truth of the matter is, that thc  editor of the Review was looked upon  as a very able exponent of the bonus  for the refinery cause, he being personally acquainted with a large number of  members of parliament, and intimately  so with some of the Cabinet ministers,  as well as his knowledge of the facts of  the case. A few days ago he was told  by some persons zealous in the matter,  to let nothing hinder him from being a  member of the delegation, if any difficulty arose to let them know at once.  An obstacle appeared, he immediately  wired as directed, and the tangle was  straightened out in a very short time.  He is now probably in the Dominion  Legislative Hall, and while journeying  there enjoyed the soft, downy cushions  of a Pullman car���������a luxury unknown  to the Paysneak Celestial, and which but  few of his qaliber ever experience.

That the laws on the subject as they, stand, too often encourage  the holders of real estate and improvements in with-holding their  annual taxes badly needed to meet current demands, forcing the  Municipalities to' borrow at- excessive rates of interest while the  unpaid realty taxes bear but a nominal rate.  That the limitation of assessment in  Corporations  to realty  their improvements and licenses, leads to a great inequality in the  tax payments of the public in general.  That, though it is assumed taxpayers, regardless of the nature  of their holdings, contribute taxes iu proportion to the value of their  assets, the object sought is defeated by the provisions of the law.as  at present constituted, on account of the great inequality in,the rates  imposed by Municipalities on realty as compared with those of the  province on personal property and incomes. '  That, duly considering all the circumstances, your petitioners  consider it most desirable your Honourable body should by law  transfer the right to tax personal property and incomes within the  Municipal boundaries, to the Municipalities direct as in real' estate  and improvements, and conform the usage to that of nearly all the  other provinces of Confederation. ���������  That such transference, iu addition to enabling Municipalities  to tax equitably on the basis of the value of assets held, would  greatly facilitate the collection of taxes ou realty, as provided for  by the laws of the other, provinces/and thus remove a grievous  burden under which Municipalities now labour.  That this additional asset to Corporations becomes more necessary in view of the increased burdens likely to be thrown upon  them by the passage of the new School Law and similar enactments.  Your petitioners, therefore, pray that your Honourable body  may give fitting consideration to the subject herein and pass act in  conformity therewith.  And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.  Witness  the seal, of the Corporation  of the City of Sandon  affixed to this petition by order of the Council of said Corporation  in meeting assembled and passed the 3rd day of.April, 1901.  W. H.

The amount of suffering borne by-  women throughout the country, can  never be estimated. Silently, almost  hopelessly, they endure from day to  day afflictions that can only fall to-  the lot of women. The following  story of the suffering and release of  Mrs. Charles' Hoeg, of Southampton,  N.S., ought to bring hope, and health-  and happiness' to other sufferers. Mrs'.  Hoeg says:���������"For nine out of the-  thirty-two years of my Life, I have  suffered as; no woman, unless she has  been similarly afflicted, can imagine I  could suffer and yet have lived. Three  weeks out of four I would be unable  to move about and, indeed, at no  time was really fit to attend to my  household duties'. I consulted physicians��������� three of the most skilful docT  tors in the county of Cumberland  at different times had charge of my,  case. These all agreed in their diagnosis;, but the treatment varied, and  while at times I would experience  some relief, at no time was! there any  hope given me of a permanent cure.  Many a night when I went to bed I  would have been glad if death had  come before morning. I never had  much faith in proprietary medicines,,  but at one time I took a half dozen  bottles of a blood-making compound  that was highly recommended. This",  like anything else, failed to help me,  There seemed to be not a particle of  blood in my body. My face was ab-  colorless,    and my appetite  derived from tips  and wages'.  VANDEBJBILT'S  COACHMAN.  Alluding to coachmen reminds us  of the fully-deserved but nevertheless  magnanimous salary paid to the coachman of a certain Lord Mayor within  these realms' who, for the privilege of  driving the chief magistrate, is- allowed something like ������300 a year and  perquisites', a respectable sum and yet  a very poor and miserable pittance  compared \vit_bl that which was paid  to the jehu who drove the inventor of  the Waterbury watch;, that coachman  got over ������1,000 a year.

Scalp massage is the latest treatment  that lovely woman is undergoing, remarks the New York Sun. It is intended to take the place of the old fashioned hair tonic, and the women who undergo the treatment at the fashionable  hairdressing shops agree that it 1b beneficial to the hair and has almost the  bracing effect of a Turkish bath in addition. '  It takes almost an hour to get a scalp  massage, which really includes other  things. The theory is that manipulation of the scalp stimulates the roots of  the hair better than any amount of liquid tonic applied without such treatment. So an experienced masseuse  rubs and kneads the scalp in a thousand ways, moistening her fingers in a  tonic solution as she works. Then she  straightens out the kinks in the hair,  brushes and shampoos it and, last of  all, singes it strand by strand until every split and bleeding hair is healed.

But at  last I came across the story of a  cure'near home���������that of Mr. Moses;  Boss;, of Rodney. I know that at one  time he had been regarded as a hopeless:, consumptive, and his euro  through Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, determined me to try them. I had not  taken two boxes before I began to  feel better, and grew confident of a  cure. I kept on taking the pills, all.  the time feeling new blood in my  veins, activity returning to my limbs',,  and the feeling of depression gradually wearing away. To many women  it may, seem incredible that the mere  making of new blood in my veins  could restore to a healthy condition  misplaced internal organs:, but this  has been my happy experience. My  pains have all left me, and I am now  as healthy a woman as! there is in  this place. This: health I owe to Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills:, which have rescued me from a life of suffering, if  not from the grave."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills' are especially valuable to women. They build  up the blood, restore the nerves!, and  eradicate those troubles! which make  the lives of s_o rnainy women, old and  young, a burden.

In hi.cy young days he  was regarded as; possessing the most  accomplishes voice in Europe, and he  could have made a success of it on the  stage.  Wholly unmusical was; the late King  of Italy, on the other hand, and a  story was' once told regarding his lack  of ear and voice for music by the present King, then Prince Victor. King  Humbert disliked to be reminded in  any way that the Queen was growing  old, and he had a particular antipathy to seeing her  WEAR GLASSES. '  The Prince described one of the domestic scenes thus:  "When papa saw the glasses going  up to mamma's eyes; he cried: 'Marg-  herita, put down those glasses!' Mamma did not obey. 'Margherita, if you  don't take off those glasses I shall  sing.' And mamma had such a dread  of papa's false notes that she obeyed  at once, to save herself from torment." ������������������  ."  t.\    I.)       : !

A cari-'  cature room has been suggested as a  good way of taking a little vanity out ^  of the gentleman. All his palaces;,  both inside and outside, might be  adorned with amusing presentments  of himself, for he has: supplied the  caricaturists- of two continents with  bread ever since he appeared gn the  public stage.  All  the   caricatures    published 'in  Paris and London the Emperor sees;  that is, they are collected and pasted  into a book for his inspection, as well  as everything important that is' said  about Mm in the foreign pressf, be it  pleasant or unpleasant, polite or cynical.     In this respect he is something  like his grandfather, William I., who  made a careful collection of the most  ridiculous    caricatures'     of    himself  printed  in France from 1866 onward.  Although  not  fond  of caricatures,  for. photograpns of himself the present  German Emperor, has a positive craze,  and his favorite pastime is posing for  the camera.     A fad at present with  him is the biograph.     There is' no request  for privileges;, to take pictures  which    the biograph    company    has  asked  that he  has' refused.  He even  goes further, and is; constantly sending word to the biograph headquarters  of  military  and other events'and  offering    an opportunity    of making  photographs.
