Easter service will be helcLin the  Catho'ie church tomorrow. During High  Mass inthe, morning Rev. Father Cote  will dedicate a life-sized statue of St.  Joseph, after whom the church is named.  The writ of garnishment against the  American Boy Mining and Milling company was dismissed Monday last, at  Spokane, by Judge Belt. The writ was  issued on petition of W. F.' Green in his  suit against W. D. Wrighter, in which  tlie. defendant won.  The civic nomination on Monday Inst  was a tame affair, for instead of "then:  being candidates breaking their necks  for nomination, the difficulty, lay in  getting men to accept.- At length their  friends prevailed upon Thos. Duffy and  Squire Lovatt, and they warn elected  by acclamation. With a full council  now it is hoped the business of the city  will go along smoothly.  Mr. Culver, foreman of the Star concentrator, has mudu a new improvement on the jigs by which a large per  centage of the values of ore now escaping in the tailings, can be saved to this  mill. Mr. Culver has been working  hard on this for months past, and is now  gruatly pleased he has met with success.  Under all conditions he is a man of inventive powers, and doubtless his discoveries will not end with this.  The city council and the Water and  Light Co. have at length come to an understanding on water supply. The city  takes tweive, hvdrants at $10 a month  each. The company binds itself to keep  a plentiful supply of water, but forfeits  its receipts for any hydrants when not  in proper working order, and agrees to  make good all repairs when injuries are  not the result of bad handling by city  officials. The people may now breathe  easier, and insurance companies and  agentsvcan settle down to business.  HINES AND niNINQ.  ,  Jackson Basin, shipped  ore   from Whitewater   this  The Payne mine made no shipments  this week.  Another car was shipped from the  Bosun this week.  The Noble Five, will start up shortly,  increasing the staff.  The Gerty Mack has a 25-foot vein  with good ore showings.  Another payment was made on the  Hartney a few days ago.  The Marion started to work this week  with a small force of men.  The Speculator Co. have taken over  the Little Dorrit and Lola claims.  The Sunset  20 tons   of  week.  A rich strike of four feet of clean ore  was encountered in the No. 4 tunnel of  the'Emily Edith.  The Canadian Goldfields Syndicate  have declared another dividend at three  per cent, for last month.  F. Malcom and Greno brothers have  secured the contract for sinking a shaft  in No. 5 tunnel at the Payne.  The American Boy last month shipped 200 tons of pre, which netted nearly  $1,200 a car. At present 40 men are  employed at the mine.  At the Queen Bess mine the raise in  the main tunnel is completed. This  raise is connected between the shaft  sunk from No. 5 and main tunnels.  The Fletch group at Whitewater will  be opened up some time in May. As.  the property is a dry ore proposition it  will.help the smelter situation greatly.  Mr. Chas. Plowman while on a visit to  England will secure the necessary capital to work the property. .  W" W. Warner will open up the Wonderful probably some time next month  which lie leased from Spokane owners.  While in Spokane the. other day he  made the statement that the Wonderful  ledge, for which there has been so many  years of search, was cut in the lower  workings but was exposed in a barren  spot and was not recognized. Pie believes that he can, with comparatively  little work, leach a body of pay ore.  Mr. Hughes has some . magnificent,  samples of ore from the Idado, Utica,  Chief, Trade Dollar and the Sunset, he  is sending to the Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo. That from the Idaho  weighs 450,lbs ; a second of cube galena  weighs 25(5 lbs, and a third is steel  galena weighing 20(! lbs. He says he  can lift two of these together���������one in  each hand, but we doubt it,  and all aa he is.  Tlie Star tallies Work.  The Slocan Star, one of Sandon's largest producers and a dividend payer of  no small repute, resumes operations .on  Monday on a large-scale with a force of  110 men, and the number will be added  to from time to time as soon as room  is made for them in the mine. The  property hasbeen largely under development since last'summer, is now so  thoroughly explored that a large amount  of ore is blocked out which will insure  a large and steady output for some time,  and before long it will rank as one of the  heaviest shippers in the province.  This property, like a large number of  others in this camp, shows" as depth is  attained the ore bodies and values increase. While sinking a shaft from No.  5 or lowest tunnel, at a depth of 90 feet  they encountered ore phenominally rich  in grey copper and ruby silver, and the  ledges show larger than ever! The mill  is now running night and day, under  better facilities, insuring a great saving  in values.  Hotel Arrivals For the Week.  Reco���������A. F. Tufte, W. J.-Taaffe, H.A.  Small, Vancouver; E.

The provincial delegation pressing for  a bonus to a lead relincry, to ease the  present difficulty in successful mining,  leaves Kootenay Landing today for Ottawa. The delegates from this city are  .VI. L. Grimmetl and C. Cliffe, those  from the Mine Owners' Association are  Messrs. D. Heap, W. H. Adams and G.  Ransom. All other parts of the Kootenay are fully represented, so the delegation is about 50 strong. They will be  able to put matters in such a shape to  the government that opposition will be  useless.

Dimitri Argyropoulo, a Greek who  was till the time of his resignation  chief clerk of the permanent staff of  the Turkish Foreign Office, has just  arrived in Paris. He knows the Red  Sultan probably as well as any man  living, and he speaks with a freedom  wiuch if exercised in Turkey would  jprobably result in hia abrupt and final disappearance.  'All the crimes of whioh the Sultan  ������uus been accused are to liis mind only  aa unpleasant necessity of tho art of  governing the East, seys Mr. Argyropoulo. Abdul Hamid governs in his  awn way, the only way he knows, the  way of Mahomet'and of all the Ottoman rulers who followed him.  The reforming Sultan, Murad.whom  Abdul Hamid replaced, would have  (been a constant and most serious  menace to the peace of the State. Abdul keeps hun for ever imprisoned or  as some say, has had him secretly assassinated and his body thrown from  the bridge of Galata to float away  dawn the deep, dark-flowing Bosphor-  his- The Armenians were turbulent,  unbelieving, in fact, generally a nuisance ; so he did not mind the Kurds  killing them like sheep and his own  janissaries helping the murderers.  PECULIAR ETHICS.  People who irritate him personal-  Sjr or who conspire to alter the condition of things in the Government  are by that very fact dangers to the  country; it is a holy and wholesome  thought to have them stabbed or poisoned and flung to the sharks before  they can dc harm, These are the ideas  thst justify fhe Sultan to himself.  2Lttd they do not prevent him from  showing a most paradoxical tenderness of heart in affairs -where his  political ideas and his personal safety  are aot involved.  ���������  For instance, this, terrible potentate  before whom his most trusted ministers tremble is often, says Mr. Argy-  ropoulo, moved to tears by some piteous letter from a peasant   of the far  interior,  whose  wine crop has been  blasted and who has. hired the village  scribe to recount his misfortune   to  the  "King,  Lord , Protector  of    the  Faithful and   Doing-Hand of Allah."  And    the      Doing-Hand���������does.      The  grim Sultan, touched by the misery  and  the simplicity  of bis  petitioner,  sends orders that the man shall   be  relieved,  mentioning  the  sum  to  be  given.   It is estimated that the Sultan spends, in thia way, some $200,000  from his private purse yearly.     He  contributes also large sums every year  to hospitals and schools maintained by  Greeks, Armenians and Jews in Constantinople and Smyrna.  THE FOOD TASTER.  Probably the best paid functionary  of the kind in the world is the man  whose duty it is. to taste all the food  set on the Sultan's .table. He receives  the salary of a Cabinet Minister, and  is kept in good humor by valuable presents, rings, jewelry, and priceless  silks, from the disposal of which he  may treble his revenues. Of course,  that is not all pure-souled generosity  on the Sultan's part, As he lives in  abject, daily fear of assassination, he  has an interest in feeling sure that  this man will play no tricks on him.  It would obviously be quite easy, for  this dignitary to absorb an uncon-  taminated spoonful carefully marked  oh a dish and allow, his; master to  swallow cheerfully a substantial and  effective dose of arsenic in the rest.  The Red Sultan's daily dread of  violent death is'a whispered commonplace in Turkey. This Greek declares  that the miserable monarch's brain  has finally turned through fear. The  Sultan, according to him, is really insane, a victim of homicidal mania,  which perpetually incites him to deeds  of blood.  He is certainly the most melancholy  of rulers.. No one has ever seen him  smile, since he first mounted his deposed brother's throne. His eyes are  always full of brooding sadness. Almost the only amusement he allows  himself is to sit in a darkened room  of the Yildiz Kiosk, smoking cigarettes for hours at a time, while afar  off at the extreme end of the apartment a couple of singers chant in the  gloom songs whose strange cadence  rise and fall with' hypnotic- effect.  SOBBING IN QUIET.  The singers have often thought they  heard him sobbing to himself in the  intervals of the chant. .When he gives  the signal* and the lights, are turned  up, his eyes are seen to be shining like  stars in his sallow face, and he retires to his private apartment with  3"��������� " ' "    ,        ,',.���������������  the tottering steps of a man plunged in a dream. It is a strange pleasure.  In his study he works long and hard.  Despite the prevalent belief, he is not  a lazy men. He is very industrious,  indefatigably handling state papers  and reading reports and petitions of  all kinds. Industrious, but useless.  For all his work practically comes to  nothing. He does not understand the  exceedingly difficult and complex  condition of the vast many-tongued  empire he is supposed to rule. The instructions he marks so carefully on  the papers he has pored over for hours  are generally so contradictory or so  impossible that his ministers are  practically forced to ignore them.  They do it with fear and trembling,  but they are rarely detected.  The Sultan appears not to remember one day the systems and orders of  governments which he elaborately  framed the day before. In this respect as in others he has the air of  a man who iives perpetually, in a misty, muddled dream.  The Turkish people were called toy  Prince von Bismarck, "the gentlemen of the East." Their bitterest enemies recognize the charm of their  grave, finished courtesy. In these  qualities the Sultan resembles his subjects. 'No one has ever had audience  with him and not gone away deeply  impressed by a feeling that in any  other role than the dismally exalted  one he plays, he would have' been the  most amiable of men.  That is the first impression the Sultan always makes,- it seems. People  forget his crimes) when they meet him.  His sad brooding eyes are perhaps the  sign that Jie cannot forget them himself;  IN A SEVERE   CASE  OP   KIDNEY DISEASE! AND LAME  BACK.  the.

Especially iio<Hl-Win-Si IOdiii; by TJieni In tin*.  S'loM In  South Africa.  British telegraphers have recently  received a good many compliments.  The King-has thanked them for the  services they rendered at Osborne and  at Windsor during the last illness of  Queen Victoria, and the German Em-  peror has decorated Charles. Mullens,  the operator who was sent from London to work the cable laid temporarily from the imperial yacht Hohen-  zollern to the shore.  The cross bestowed on Mullens is a  handsome piece of work. On the front  is the imperial monogram W.R., surmounted by a Crown, and on the back  is an inscription setting forth that the  recipient had rendered service to the  State. If Mr. Mullens should ever  care to settle down in Germany the.  cross will entitle him to draw a modest  pension.  Equally gratifying to the telegraphers is. the emphatic testimony to the  excellence of their work during the  war in South Africa. .Field Marshal  Lord Roberts, in the full despatches  just published in the official London  Gazette, says that, despite the enormous difficulties of the country traversed, his telegraphers almost always  managed' to keep him in communication will all his scattered forces in tho  enemy's   country.   .  Gen. Buller writes of their technical knowledge, their unwearying perseverance and their high state of efficiency, adding " all officers, non-commissioned officers and men of tho  Telegraph Department have done exceptionally well. The only fault I  have to find with them has been that  they have been sometimes, too anjg-  ious to keep their line up and have  incurred undue risk."  Gen. Sir' George White declares  that the service of tho telegraphers  during the historic siege "was of the  highest value and conduced greatly  to the successful defence of Lady-  smith." The use which Gen. Baden  Powell made of his small band of  telegraphers is by this time pretty  well known. All his outlying forts  and lookout posts at Mafeking were  connected with headquarters, and he  was thus able to receive reports and  issue orders for all parts of the defence instantaneously. Signalling was  reduced to a fine art and maintained  by heliograph lamp and flag. Megaphones were also made and used in  outlying trenches and posts, and  phonophores, attached to ordinary  telegraph lines, were used on the armored trains which used to bother  the Boers so much.  Dodd's Kidney Pills Cure Mr. Anderson,  of Waterside, N.B., After Five Medical  Men Have Pronounced His Case Absolutely Incurable.  Waterside, N.B., March 18.���������Special.  ���������" I ba*ve been bo often induced to  try patent medicines by the reading  of the wonderful cures said to have  been effected in (similar cases, that  nowi when I feel it my duty to write  the story of my own cure by the use  of Dodd's Kidney Pills, I am carefully  avoiding any comment of my own or  any complimentary words. I simply  state the absolute facts of my case  as follows:  " I have been treated by five different doctors, and have taken a large  amount of patent medicine during tho  last four years for Kidney Trouble  and Lame Back, from which I have  been suffering. I was very bad. My  life at times seemed a burden. I got  no relief until I was.persuaded to try '  Dodd's Kidney Pills. I cheerfully give  this unsolicited testimonial, that I  have received mere benefit from six  boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills, than  from  any  and  all  other  sources."  Mr. Anderson is in earnest. His  straight-forward statement of facts'  carries conviction. Lame Back and  Kidney Disease do not seem able to,  exist where this wonderful remedy is.  used. It has been made very popular  in this community by the hearty en-  dorsation of Mr., Anderson, who is a  well known and very highly respected  citizen. The success of Dodd's Kidney  Pills in cases like those of Mr. Anderson, has created a demand which the  local druggists have reported as unprecedented.  his appreciation of the services of the  gallant telegraphers : " Their duties  were unceasing by night as well as.  by day and .were frequently carried  out under heavy fife at great personal risk. The zeal, energy and  willingness, displayed by these offic-  ers was most conspicuous throughout  tho siege, and their work had a large  share in bringing about the successful issue of the siege."  -������^^v  DIFFICULT? IN CHURNING.  Several winters ago we had difficulty in churning, says a writer. Our  cows were due to come in in the spring  and were fed ,iwith good hay and corn  fodder, but no grain. The milk was Set  in small pans; for 36 cbours, then skimmed and after the cream was slightly sour we tried to churn it, but could  not make it separate. This' winter we  have a small quantity of milk, not  enough to take to creamery, so we  are setting in small pans again the  same as before. I put about 1 qt boiling water into each pan of milk. The  cream stirs to butter in a few minutes, so I conclude the milk was too  rich was the reason the ^butter did not  separate. JL set the pail of cream on  a shelf back of the stove several hours  before churning. When just ready to  separate, ������ add a little skixnmilk.  GLASS FIRE CAN'T BREAK.  For years the Pilkington glass works  in Lancashire, England, have been conducting experiments designed to produce fireproof and burglarproof glass,  and for the first time these experiment's were crowned with success. To  the molten glass a wire netting was  added, and the composition resulting  resisted all inroads of fire or other  violent agencies. Doors of this material have proved unbreakable, and  even when sufojeoted to 2,500 degrees  Fahrenheit remained unaffected,while  ordinary doors grew, red hot, The new.  composition is expected to be a great  Gen.

Had His Spine Injurod and for Two  Years Was Unable to do Any Work  and for Most of the Time Was Con  lined to the House.  Mr. M. D'Entremont, a well known  farmer living at West Pubnico, N.S.,  writes:���������"I believe it is only right  that I should let you know the benefit your medicine���������Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills���������have been to my sou, Constant,  sixteen years of age. For several  years he was' almost a constant invalid, tho result of an injury to his  spine while working with his brothers  on the farm. He grew weak and  listless, had no appetite, and for two  years was unable to work and was for,  the most of the time confined to the  house, and for a part of the time to  his bed. He suffered considerably  from pains in the back; his legs were  iveak; and he had frequent headaches.  At different times he was attended by  two doctors, but got no benefit from  the treatment. Then I procured an  electric belt (for him, but it was simply money wasted as it did net do  him a particle of good. One day  while my son was reading a -newspaper he came across an article telling of a cure in a somewhat similar  case through the use of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and he then decided to give  them a trial. After the second box  was taken there was a marked improvement in his condition. 'He  continued the use of the pills until  he had taken eight boxes, and they  have restored him to health. His appetite has returned; the pain has!'left  his back; he has' gained flesh; is able  to ride a bicycle, enjoys life and is'  able to do a day's work as well as any  one of his age. This letter is given gladly so , that others may learn  the merits of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  and find a cure if ailing."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure such  cases as the one noted above because  they create. new, rich, red blood, thus  strengthening weak and shattered  nerves. They do not purge and weaken like other medicines, but strengthen from the first dose to the last.

'  ���������SILK MADE OF  WOOL    PULP.  Remarkable to relate, wood can be  utilized for soft, flowing gowns. Wood  pulp silk has been long a staple industry in the,St, Etienne district of  France. By a secret chemical process,  the pulp is reduced to a sirupy condition. It is then -forced into tubes full  of tiny holes, through .which it emerges in the form of fine-silk threads.  These are speedily dried by being  passed through a hot atmosphere and  are forthwith wound onto bobbins,  ready to be woven into silk. The appearance of this unique product is  ������aid to be so natural that even experts  have mistaken it for the genuine article. It is, of course, infinitely  cheaper.  SHE SUPPOSED.

The British Columbia government has  now, it appears, taken up the strain as  Mr. lielincken has given notice of a motion to secure a bonus of $5 a ton on lead  mined, smelted and refined in the province.   By the   Dominion   government  passing a similar regulation, the one the  delegates going to Ottawa are demanding, there will be ample inducement to  encourage the industry in the province.  The regret is the people are in sections  in  all these matters, unity of purpose  and action being out  of   the   question.  One section does not want a bonus given  lest the parties getting it should  make  something out of the deal; no matter  what the province   might   profit   by it.  Another section  wants refineries.built  by the government or not at all, and  still another wants such  restrictions on  a com pay investing in  it as would  prevent them from selling to others at any  . time after the refinery was. built.    If it  was a fact that refineries were- certain to  be   built   in   any event, any and   all of  these restrictions might prove of public  service; but we know of no  reason why  any   of 'them   should   be forced to the  front as ultimatums, when tlie search is'  for a company to. build a first refinery  under present conditions.   It is an absolute certainty the country cannot prosper without mining, and mining cannot  succeed without a satisfactory  market  for products.   To the present we  have  depended on American smelters and re-  lineries for outlets, and as these are now  closed to our ores, the only cure appears  to be a resort to bonus resources.   It is  a   pity then   that  there  is   nat more  unanimity among the people as to how  these   are   to   be  secured.   The miner  looks   at   the  smelter   from one standpoint, the owner from another, and the  capitalist from a third, when in fact the  only question is the.best means of securing a first refinery on a   banis  that will  pay the owners and   meet  tlie  require-  of the country.  What is wanted is simply a start and  ther conditions to meet the actual  requirements of the country will follow  after. The moment it is found there is  money in a refinery on . any basis in  Canada, there will'be others willing to  erect a second and a third, on conditions  more favorable to the people, if the first  be not operated on satisfactory lines.  Those who have special restrictions in  mind should not lose'sight of this.  Last year there was $385,000 in cold  cash sent out of'this country to the  Sates, Great Britain and elsewhere, for  lead-pipe and other lead manufactures  that should have been made in Canada  ���������a lead producing country. Let us  first have the refinery, and next such  legislation as will deyelop manufactures  iu branch after branch, and so on of all  products th'e raw materials for whose  manufacture are found in our country,  and there will be no need lor our growing population to seek employment else?  where. It is such a policy as this that  built up Great Britain, the United States  and all other countries that have risen  to any importance within the last century. The duty of British Columbians  in this and all similar matters is to drop  their sectional opinions and work for  the welfare of the country as a whole.  BODY-RESTORER  Food is the body-restorer.  In health, you want nothing  but food; and your baby wants  nothing "but food. But, when  not quite well, you want to get  back to where food is enoucfh.  One of the most delicate  foods, in the world, is Scott's  emulsion of cod-liver oil.  When usual food is a burden,  it feeds you enough to restore  your stomach;  baby the same.  The body-builder is food;  the body-restorer is Scott's  emulsion of cod-liver oil.  We'll send you a little to try if you like.  SCOTT & KOWNE,    Chemists, Toronto.  UNFAIR TAXATION.  U-:  Notwithstanding all the tinkering that  has been done with municipal legislation to date, our assessment laws' are in  a very crude condition. For instance,  no matter what chattels a man may  have on real estate, they cannot be held  liable for taxes on that real estate. The  owner of that real estate cannot be compelled to pay taxes for two years, or tn  other words real estate cannot be sold  for taxes for two years, and the arrears  of taxes bear but six per cent, interest.  As money is anywhere worth more than  six per cent., here is an inducement for  the real estate owner to refuse tax payments, and cripple his municipality for  the lack of funds. It is clear that as the  government retains the sole right to tax  all personal property, chattels cannot  be seized in any case for realty taxes.  This is an anomaly peculiar to British  Columbia alone, and   must be changed  Often changes to the jaded woman.   "I  can't see what's come over Mary; she  used to be such a jolly girl," was the  .remark of   a young woman  visiting a  I iimi.i-,1. in .i���������n.i ���������^ uiarried schoolmate.   Marriage  changes a woman.    The drains  and pains which  are so often the  sequence  of  marriage     rob  her of all vitality.     Give her  back her former  strength     and  she'll   be   as  "jolly"   a  wife  as   she  was   a  maid.      Doctor  Pierce's   Favorite  Prescription  gives back the  lost strength by  re-establishing  the   health   of  the delicate  womanly    organs.     It dries  the  drains and  stops the pains.  It cures ulceration,  inflammation and female  weakness.       It  makes   weak  women   strong and  sick women well.  "For two years I had been a sufferer from  chronic diseases and female weakness," writes  Mrs. Alien A. Bobson, of  1125 Rodman Street,  Philadelphia, Pa.   KI had two different doctors,  and they gave me medicine which only relieved  me   for  a  time.       My  niece  advised   me  to  take Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.    I concluded that to open a correspondence with you  for your advice would be safest, so I did, aud  have been highly benefited.      I find that after  taking six bottles of 'Favorite Prescription ' and  five of ' Golden Medical Discovery' aud following your advice in regard to local treatment, I  sooner or later.   The  gross  injustice to   w-s- Hkewby  the   municipality  and   prompt paying  realty holders is also very apparent, as  real estate in municipalities is assessed  at full value  and pays about 1}4  cents  on the dollar taxes.   On the other hand  government assessors    assess   personal  property for about one-fourth  its value,  and it pays a rate of one-half of one per  cent.,    or   just   one-half the   rate   the  realty holder pays to the municipality.  We will, however, better illustrate this:  If  A     owns    a lot    and   building   in  Sandon worth   $1,800, he is assessed for  about $1,200,  pays a tax of l}4 per cent,  or .$18.   If  B owns   no   real estate but  holds a stock of   goods worth   $5,000. he  is assessed for probably $2,000, and pays  one-half of one per cent, on it or $10, or  less than  one-half of what   the   realty  holder pays.    In addition to all this not  more than half the taxes  levied  by tiie  provincial' government are paid.    When  the entire personal property tax collected by the   provincial   government   last  year was less than $105,000, the public  can readily understand the force of provincial   collections as   the law  stands.  ..We are bound to say if the City of Vancouver had the right to  collect personal  property tax on the   legislation   of   the  other provinces, it would   realise   much  more than that amount.    All subjects of  any country are supposed to contribute  equally, on the basis of their assets, for  the maintenance of municipal and provincial institutions, but   how they can  defeat the end by holding  personal property instead of realty is'fully shown by  this.   But a change'has got to come, and  it may as \yell come now as later.   The  government are gradually throwing burdens on the  municipalities���������now comes  a portion of the cost of schools, and they  must  provide   the   means   of   meeting  them.     As   things   stand   government  collection of either realty, personal property or income   tax   la   a  mere fiasco.  Then why not hand  the   entire   matter  over   to   the   municipalities,   the  only  powers   that can   assess  equitably and  collect accordingly?  Squire Lovatt is moving in the mattr*r  in the council, and every municipality  in the province should second the effort  at once. By securing this concession  they will double present revenues, be  able to have money at ail times, and enforce prompt realty tax payments which  now is next to impossible when the  owners do not want to pay. Our council should push the squire's petition  promptly, to secure the attention of the  government the present session.  H. T.Twiou  Sandon, B, C. >>'ew Denver, B. C.

The Dunsmuir government made a  mistake in refusing to submit all votes  of land and bonuses to railways, &c, to  the people before passing them. The  entire public domain and the wealth of  the country belong to the people and  not to the government, and tiiey should  be consulted before appropriations are  made. It is no argument to sav that refusing to leave such power in the hands  of a government or parliament means  distrust in the honesty of these bodies.  They can onl}' think for themselves and  not for the people, and though as honest  as men can be, they may not think as  the people do on such subjects. Apart  from all this, in four years���������the life of a  provincial parliament���������new projects  crop up the people heard nothing of in  the last campaign, and it may at the  next campaign, after four years, be too  late to give the motives or honesty of  their representatives consideration���������as  the property may be gone. Municipal  councils though having but a lease of  oflice for a single year, are not given  power to vote away money M'ithout consulting their constituents, and parliaments are but bodies of more extended  powers, not, however, including the natural privileges of the people.

On    the    surface  o������ things    trade  unionism appears  to be distinclly    a  modern development of sociology. The  surface,  however,  as  an Irish public  speaker    once  remarked,    is "merely  superficial,"   and    unions   under    the  name of    labour  leagues have    been  known   in   China  from time  immemorial.      According to lafcour authorities of that country,   all    tradesmen  belon;?-    to    the  guild, of    their own  trade, -.vhich exists mainly to prevent  under-selling. Only in certain districts  is  there  an.  effort made  to    control  rates of wages, and. nowhere to limit  hours of labour.     It is these leagues  which ordain that shops retailing the  same class of goods must all be concentrated In one district, an arrangement  which always seems; so ridiculous to foreigners.   Thus;, in a native  town, one street will be entirely inhabited  by jewellers, another by silk  merchants, and so on. It is; convenient  for the customer, though the plan is  not intended for his benefit, but merely to simplyfy the system of spying.  There is   always   a   minimum   price  fixed by the league for every article  on the market, and even the smartest  foreign    bargain-driver  will find   it  well-nigh impossible to beat the vendor  down below   this price,    though  a less sum might repay him personally.  HOW AUiTHOIUTr IS ENFORCED.  The methods by which the labour  leagues enforce their authority are  unique. If a man is found underselling, or otherwise infringing the  rules by which he is bound, a hint  is quietly dropped to the local head  of the Beggars' Union, and that worthy details a specially numerous; and  loathsome body of mendicants���������lepers*  if available���������to pay assiduous; attention to the offender's establishment.  If this penalty fail���������a possibility which  seems inconceivable to any white person who has ever come in contact  with the fraternity��������� various means  are taken to trip up the recalcitrant  member over some trifling police  regulation. Having succeeded in this  object, the union authorities quietly  notify the municipal elders in whose  hands is centred the adminis,tration  of local justice that disciplinary measures are necessary, and they inflict  punishment accordingly.  WHAT THEY -CONTILOL.  The various unions keep tho roada  of their own districts, and collectively  maintain the town police aud the  school. Each village has a real interest In educational matters, for this;  reasons: A scholar, that is, a man  who has passed by examiuation Into  the literary class, had the right, at all  times, to "see" the mandarin, and aa  it is a well-accepted custom that a  scholar should always Lntorvene on  behali of any of his own village in  trouble with the authorities, it follows that the more scholars; a district  can produce the better for all the inhabitants thereof. To lessen the num-i  ber of police���������and thereby the rates  for their support���������the labour leagues  enact that any person who catches  a thief red-handed on his premise's  is bound to give him up to justice,  no matter what are the circumstances  which might incline him to mercy.  Failure to comply with this rule reduces the captor to the same level as;  the criminal. This law has in the  past been a stumbling block to missionaries, who have not always! realized the mistaken impression of  Christian morality produced upon natives by the pardon of a thief caught  pilfering during a prayer meeting or  class  instruction.  PUNISHMENTS INFLICTED. .,  The usual penalty inflicted for petty larceny is the "walking punishment." The offender, stripped to  the waist, and preceded by torn-toms  and bells, is marched through the  streets attwnded by a pdliceman or  executioner, who administers a heavy  blow with a bamboo cane every few  steps. The cangue is another ordinary penalty. A man wearing this collar can neither rest nor feed himself,  for the projecting wood prevents him  reaching his hand to- the mouth. It  is difficult to over-estimate t'he  power of the trades unions in up-country.towns, where they control the actions of the elders and the Taotai. For  instance, should the hitter interfere  with a member of the guild, the Labour League simply orders all shops  to be closed and the municipal dues I  withheld. If this dislocation of busi-J  ness continues more than a day or two  "a state of rebellion," in official parlance, thereby automatically, exists.  The district mandarin Is compelled, to  take cognizance of the outbreak, and  the local gentleman is either degraded or beheaded. In civilized countries trades unions; are not an unmixed blessing, but. it is' certainly a matter for congratulation that they are  not quite so autocratic as in China.  *^������-^^&^*^������^^^b������^^^^/^^^ -t-fe/^e &^*9si9>-**bSQsQ>s<&i&wv  MUSKOKA   COTTAGE   SANITORIUM.

This institution is devoted to the  treatment of persons: in the early  stages,' of consumption of the lungs.  "W. J. B.," in a recent issue of a  Toronto dally, after speaking of the  beautiful scenery and handsome  buildings he found on the shore of  Lake Muskoka, says:  "In all cases; the,patients occupy,  separate rooms;. The table board Is  excellent, and everything seems; to be  conducive to their happiness;. Facilities are provided for all kinds of winter and summer outdoor sports. The  patients spend from eight to ten  hours each day in the open air. In  zero weather I saw men reading, napping and playing games on the piazza^  and ladies doing fancy work and writing letters in perfect contentment.  The sunlight, open air, rest and medical treatment seem to be yielding  wonderful results'. One patient told  me he had gained 221-2 pounds in  four weeks. Dr. DeWitt, of Wolf-  ville, Nova Scotia, who came with a  patient to the Sanitorium, said he  felt safe here, as; he saw no possibility of contagion where only cases! in  the earlier stages! of the disease are  admitted. He claimed that those  fifty or more patients, gathered from  all over the Dominion of Canada, and  some from across the sea, were not  only saving their own lives; for further usefulness, but saving thousands  of precious lives; from infection. Most  of them will return to their homes  cured, and will become missionaries of  health to their families and friends."  The doctors tell us; that from one-  sixth to one seventh of all deaths are  from tuberculosis'. One out of every four of those between fifteen and  fifty-five years of age result from  this cause. It is astonishing how  many diseases spring from it. It annually claims more victims! than  smallpox, diphtheria, typhoid fever,  yellow fc������*r, Asiatic fever, leprosy,  measles; and whooping cough combined. In Europe the State municipalities, manufacturies, insurance  companies and private agencies are  united in battling with the ravages  of this disease. All praise is due to  Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal, Sir  William Meredith and those associated  with them, who have started thiat  movement in Canada, and have provided such excellent facilities for the  successful conduct of the work.  tb  And have it done with good  paint.

Many people believe that it is  ruined by soap and water, and will  keep some ohexished length for years  and years, turning, yellow with age  and rotting with the dust it has. accumulated until it really drops to  pieces.  If a bath tub ihas part of its; enamel worn off it is hard to keep  clean. It is very easy, however, to re-  enamel an old tub at slight expense.  Scrub it first with a strong solution  of soda in water. When perfectly dry  apply the first Coat of enamel. Allow  this two days in "which to dry, and  then put on the second coat. After  drying for twenty-four hours fill the  tub with cold water and let this stand  six hours. Empty, dry thoroughly and  add the third coat of paint.  There are several ways to clean  an enamelled tub. One that is easy and  quick is to pour Borne benzine on a  cloth, scour the bath-tub well with  this, and then wash with water and  soap. Another method is to take a  heaped tablespoonful of kitchen salt,  wet it with turpentine and scour the  bathtub with this. Then rub carefully with a clean cloth. Caution is  needed in trying this plan to see that  the salt and turpentine mixture is  used.  Old preserve jars, which have lost  their covers, or whose edges have-been  chipped so that the covers .will not fit  tightly, . may still be utilized for  holding pickles. When the jar is' filled paste a piece of parchment tightly  over the top to exclude air and insects  and set it away in a cool closet or  storeroom.  In cleaning and polishing a piano,  go over the woodwork with a cloth  wet with coal oil, being generous with  the oil where the wood work is very  much soiled,. Let this remain two or  three hours; this is to soften the  dirt. Then wash with soap and water and a soft cloth, being careful not  to let any water touch the works inside the piano. Use a good white or  a white Castile Boap. Wipe dry with  a soft cloth, linen or chamois leather.  ALUMINUM.  The use of aluminum Is grovving.and  its price is increasing. With the exception of iron, zinc and lead, it is  now said, to be the cheapest metal on  the market. Twenty years ago the  world's output was about five tons and  its price was. about $30,000 a ton.  Nowi the price is less than $700 a ton.  and the output is reckoned at 5,000  tons.      , ; ���������  It was a combat of various kinds'  of wild amd domestic animals and  birds. There are vast stables attached to the Maharajah's city palace  which accommodate more than 100  fine horses. These stables inclose a  great arena, at one end of wihich is  a. handsome platform constructed  mainly of polished marble. The battles of the beasts; and birds began  at 4 o'clock in the afternoon in the  arena in front of the platform.  Gen. Palmer and his party arrived  at that hour and occupied the platform facing the arena. All around  the great field were gathered thousands of natives gayly dressed in their  brightest garments. Then two Indians wearing the olive-colored turbans of the Maharajah's household  brought out in front of the spectators cages containing brilliant plum-  aged birds as large as: quails.  THE BATTLES BEG-IN.  The birds were released and instantly flew at each other and began  a fierce contes t. This' co mba t lasted only a few minutes and then other attendants brought out the chickens for a cockfight. After that  about twenty deer of the species called blackbucks in India were led into  the field.  ��������� The blackbucks are not so large as;  the common deer found in Canada, but  they are armed with a pair of great  antlers twisted like a huge corkscrew.  The antlers are usually two feet long  on an average deer. Each buck was  led by two men. who walked on either  side of it. Ropes thirty feet long  were fastened to the deer's head and  in this way the men were able to prevent tho animals escaping into the  crowd of spectators.  The bucks .were paired off and soon  ten separate battles were hotly raging. Before locking their black antlers the wily antagonists: would, as  a prizefighter .would say, spar for an  opening. Then suddenly they would  lunge forward in terrible collision.  The bucks were full of pluck and  fought for ten minutes, when they  were pulled apart by the attendants.  THE RAMS.  wild boars, some large and gome  small. Each boar was securely held  with ropes. They surprised all the  spectators who had not previous.!^  seen such a contest by the comparative tameness of their battle. The  biggest boars seemed bent more upon  charging the keepers and the crowd  than upon fighting their selected antagonists. W'hen fighting they stand  upon their rear legs and endeavor to  tear each other's throats with their  huge tusks.  THE BIG ELK.  By far the most spirited battles]  were those that followed between elk.  Ten men handled each of the half dozen big felloAvs. The points, of the  elks'.'horns had been sawed off. They  would approach each other very slowly and their heads would almost touch ���������  before either would seem to be in'  earnest. Then like a flash both  ���������would drop upon their knees and  struggle for an advantageous hold  with their strong horns. They fought  most viciously and the attendants'had  the greatest trouble to separate them.  Occasionally an elk would make a  dash for the crowd, but was always;  checked.  Two gigantic black buffaloes, sleek  and fat, with their mighty horns  painted a bright red, then came upon the field. They walked in stately and decorous fashion until they  caught sight of each other and then  they trotted bellowing for the fray.  They fought wickedly'for ten minutes and were then dragged apart by a  score of men.  The entertainment ended with a  lance contest between two natives,  who rode a pair of splendid horses' belonging to the Maharajah. The extraordinary feature of this bout was  that no matter how frequently or  quickly their., horses were circled  about, the points of the combatants  lances were always kept pointing to- '  ward each' other.  The Maharajah of Jeypore is one of  a type of the native Indian rulers.  He maintains an immense establishment in the heart of the pink and  white city. The palace itself is seven stories high but is! not especially  imposing. But the grounds about it  comprise many acres of gardens;. The  Maharajah has five wives and some  two hundred concubines. He is a .  wealthy man.  In his staples' arc scores of fine Arabian horses, mostly white or grey.  Formerly this princely ruler had a  great herd of well trained elephants  but many of them were killed by a dis-  easa not long ago and only a score of  them remain.  After that bout a pair of immense  rams, with great,curling horns, were  driven before the stand from opposite sides' of the arena. When sixty  feet apart, the moment they saw  each other, they rushed forward and  their iron heads met in such terrific  impact that both rams fell backward.  Immediately they backed off in opposite directions, until they were fifty  feet apart. When they again shot  forward, each at his living target. The  ram that ran the swiftest and the farthest would always succeed in throwing back his foe. In these fights' it  happens sometimes: that a ram's head  is split open aud he is killed in the  first onslaught.  There were three or four ram fights  and then .a dozen large deer were led  out.     After, them   came   a score of  IN THE QUEEN'S LIFETIME.  Ladies who attended drawing-rooms!  kissed the queen's hand only at their  first presentation.  One of her majesty's special treasures was a little white marble bust  of herself at the age of ten years.  Her majesty had three crowns. The  lightest weighs eight ounces, and has  in it 2,073 white diamonds and 523  rose-brilliants.  On every occasion on which the  queen visited the (house of lords the  state crown was. borne before her majesty on a cushion.  It was on the day of the queen's  birth, May 24, 1819, that the first  trans-Atlantic steamer started from  Savannah for Liverpool.  Twenty-two dolls' cushions, made  by the queen when ten years old, are  still in existence. So is her favorite  toy book, called, " Ellen; or the  Naughty Girl Reclaimed," and pub-  i lished in 1811.  Queen Victoria received about ������120,-  000,000 from the British nation in  payment of her official salary. This  would make about 170 tons of gold  in English sovereigns or more than  two tons of gold for. each year of her  reign.  The (queen's entry in the duchess  of Fife's book of "Likes; and Dislikes"  runs thus: "God has been so good to  me, and given me so much to make  me happy during my life, that now, in  my old age, I will not confess, that  I have any dislikes."

Crawford returned home Monday after spending a week in the Lil-  looet district, where he had a contract  for packing machinery to the Lome  mine. He says tins property is a gold  mine, and last year shipped some $12,000  worth of ore. The town of Lillooet is a  place of 200 population. Mr. Crawford  visited a shaft and found quartz and  placer mining carried on by large numbers of Japs and Chinese as well as  white men. The scenery in that country is grand, but the mountains arc very  liiiih and rocky, and in many places  good indications of ore are found. All  kinds of fish and game abound along the  Frascr river, he having saw four deer  one morning within a short time. The  prospector in this section can always  secure plenty to eat.  A healthy sign of mining operations  in thiH district is that though financial  troubles overtake many properties in  their development, but few of them are  allowed to go under the hammer. The  Chapleau and Mollie Gibson are the last  to straighten up their tangles, and are  now again on a good financial basis.  Certificate of Improvements.
