 ' ti^O . J^i^4^ct**H^  I '  VOL. 4.���������NO. 84".  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  1/i  A Decided Success.  The carnival this year was a decided  success, notwithstanding the circumstances against it. The most forcible of  these, of course, was the death of out-  beloved Queen, which sad event prevented many outsiders from participating in what otherwise would have been  a pleasure to them. Our rink committee  foresaw this, but. when the sad news  came over the wires, their plans were so  far completed that postponement was  out of the question. It was then a case  of either go ahead or abandon the idea  altogether, and the former was decided  on.  The rink was tastefully decorated with  tricolor bunting, evergreens, flags and  Chinese lanterns, and the ice was in  very good condition from tho start.  The Iirst of the visitors were two rinks  from Rossland and one from Nelson on  Monday, accompanied by a number of  visitors from both cities. "  Hockey Games.  NELSON VS. ROSSLAND.  The above teams lined up Tuesday  evening before some 300 spectators. It  was anticipated from the start, that the  game would be exciting and speedy, aiid  all who,entertained this idea were in no  way disappointed. -Tlie game vvas called-  for 7:30 sharp, but was delayed owing to  a disagreement in selecting a referee  favorable to both sides.' It was settled  linally by-Dudley. Blackwood accepting  tho charge. In the first half of the fray  Nelson scored four points by brilliant  combination play, 'and-'Rossla.net:-by-a-  neat rush retaliated by securing one  before the whistle for half time.    At thei  Sandon Juniors vs. Rossland Juniors.  Wednesday evening's match was a  break in the link that was wrought three  years ago and Inn stood the test of that  number of years. The link was broken by  the defeat of the Sandon_ lads in a score  of S to G. There are two "scores in question, one arising from the knocking  down of one of the goal posts and the  other being too high.  The team was weakened by Hogan  being unable to. take part, which lea  sened their chances of victory. Their  defeat was an honorable one, adefeat at  a time when they might have been expected to be in the pink of condition. It  was the iirst break in a three years' unbeaten record. Both teams -had their  own boosters, and thc friendly shouts  were in evidence.  THE LOCAL GRAFT.  SILVERTON VS. KASLO.  As the Slocan City Hockey Club failed  to put in an appearance at the carnival,  it was decided that the Silverton and  Kaslo clubs should try conclusions. The  contestants of both teams were not what  we would term of the high grade of  hoc'keyists, but both sides accomplished  some very good individual play. The  game throughout was something of tlie  original, that is to sny every man played  for himself, and offsides were ignored  and not taken into consideration. Nevertheless Lhe game afforded the greatest  amount of amusement (hat one could  wish for. About one' hundred sports  accompanied Kaslo to boostfor the boys  in white, but the red and white Silver-  tmians has their share of admirers. The  sqore stood soiriewlieve in-the'neighbor  hood'of".10 to 1 in Kaslo'sfavor.  :Y:;   THE MASQUERADE.   ./  Tho fancy dress carnival was  not the  success that a great manv would  like  to have seen.   No doubt the great drawback was, that, this   being; on  the last  .���������..---   night of.the carnival, the people were so  outset of the second half  Thompson,  of  overtaxed with the  previous three davs  the Nelsons, received a severe cut in the  eye, which necessited his withdrawal  for the balance of the came. 'To even up  the contestants Rosslitnd laid off one. of  their men. In the latter part ofthe  game Rossland decidedly had the best of  it, as the puck was continually shot on  the Nelson flags. It resulted in a score  of time points'in their favor Nelson  secured another goal. When time was  called the game stood 5 to 4 in favor of  Nelson. The playing all through was  commendable, as it was devoid of roughness, which is often indulged in, and  nothing but'the most friendly feeling  was sho vn toward one another^  SANDON VS. ROSSI/AND;  As a result of Nelson's hockey team  refusing to play off with Sandon" in the  closing contest for the championship,  Rossland kindly consented to take their  place. The ma'tch was played on Wednesday afternoon, a large namber of  spectators being present. The game  was the swiftest of the season, and the  defeat of the.Rosslarid team was a surprise to the Sandon people, ������s it was  wagered from the first that thev would  not have a ghost of show. They certainly crowned themselves with laurels.  The enthusiasm and applause that greeted them on all sides, aroused their old  ��������� time vigor, causing them to work like  Trojans.  ..       .  The only change made in the team  that played Nelson last week was, Bur-  chill Yrelieving McKinnon and Oliver  goaler. To class the players individually would be an injustice, as they  one and all showed to advantage.  The maekinaws presented bv the  PIuntet-Kendrick Co. will remain in the  eitv.  of merriment, and the dwindling of the  outside visitors to their respective homes  The costumes of the skaters were not  arrayed quite so gorgeous as, upon other  occasions.. However, from 'a financial  point of view, it was quite up to expectations. ��������� ���������;-  In the J4 mile skating race Howard  Cameron secured first place and Walter  Clifle ..second.  /The following are the winners ofthe  various prizes: ..

About 150 people came in' from Kaslo  by special train Wednesday evening to  see their club defeat Silverton. All the  same Silverton has a counle of excellent  players. C. Moore did heavy work '-for  Kaslo.  The city council have the town hall  draped iii mourning, Mr. May the Bank,  and E. R. Atherton the post office, .out  of respect for the memory of the dead  Queen. ' Several other places in town  have recollections of the sad event.   ,  At the carnival subscriptions to the  MiNixci -Review and the Paystreak were  offered as prizes. The compel ion for the  Review was lively, but no one offered  for the blue print'. This needs no explanation. Boer advocates aie at a discount even in Sandon.  The Hunter-Kendrick Co. had their  west window very attractive for the carnival. "Welcome to Sandon carnival,  1901," with "hockey" and "curling" iu  the corner, was worked with loaf sugar  in tea and coffee beans. The artistic  decoration was greatly admired.  Tbe K. & S.

Mr. Sanford preached a  memorial sermon otj Sunday evening  that is the 'Subject of much favorable  comment by all who heard it. As might  have been expected, the disloyalty of  our neighbor came in for a little attention, that may servo him a lesson later  on.  The Catholic concert in the Miners'  Union hall last evening was a marked  success. The programme was an  interesting one, and all numbers were  highly appreciated by the audience.  The committee in charge have every  reason to congratulate them of their  success.  Lieut. Twiss, No. 4 Co. of Kaslo, is  now in a position to take applications .  for service in the South African Constabulary from what Mr. McAdams  pleases to' call "fool Canadians."

The Nelson" Tribune of Wednesday  says: "The .Nelsonit.es have already de- *  feated the Sandon team, which will give  them greater encouragement ' to play  hard to win the victory in tonight's contest.'The prize is a high grade mackin-  aw coat, and it is quite probable that the  Nelson boys will come home clad in the  new garment."  7 "No, they didn't neither."   They did -���������  not even stay to  try on  the mackinaw  coatu, .much  less  to win  them.   They  acted like very wise little boys, and went  home to avoid the  licking Rossland got.

Men who live all their lives among domestic animals, and who retain effete  Torry  principles,  and only    read   the  Times amd the Field, cannot be  said  to  have  their hand on the  pulse of  the hour, don't you know. Conservatism with Triggs has become simply a  disease.   Talk about heredity 1    Why  Triggs is his father over again, and  hie grandfather and his great-grandfather ; and he glories in it.   His unfailing answer to every objection or  (suggestion  ia this:  .   ' 'Change ?  Why ?   It  wad good  enough  for  my ancestors.   I'm  no better than they were. What's* the  use  of changing ?"  So, amongst other atrocious habits  he turns day into night and retires  at ten o'clock, and gets' up at half  pa-st six, or some godless hour of that  and haunt chappies', I shall argue it  out, don't you know, and explain what  a mistake it is.  The longer I stopped with Triggs  the more I yearned to get back to  Edith. There was' no doubt about it,  I loved hex, all right���������in fact, more  than ever. I felt I really couldn't  live without her. She was in my  mind's' eye all day loniff, and I heard  Next morning I told Triggs I was  going back to hier, and asked him if  he heard of any old country place like  his' in the market to let me know.  I also advised him to have his cat  shot. The cat was there at the time,  and just looked up, and then folded  im his paws and yawned, and went  to sleep again. For by day he's an  ordinary, unintelligent Jbrute enough,  It is' only by night he gets so demoniacally awake and clever and satirical. So I went back, to town, dying to see Edithl and hear her voice  hen voice as I paced through the tre-   and feel hler little hand.     My chip-  mendous silence of the night. At such  times I contrasted the silver mists',  rustling leaves, soft nocturnal voices,  black shadows, and air of mystery  and isolemnity and peace that filled  Triggs' place after dark, with the  scenes1 of London life I know so well.  I saw the Strand and my "Vampire"  johnnies trooping out of their haunts.  I saw the gleam of electricity and the  glare Of gas.   I heard  the roar and  kind. You must try aud fall in with rattle and rush and hustle and bus-  a faddy johhny if he happens to be tie of it all, don't you know, and I  your host, so I proposed a compromise a-lmost doubted if it was really good  between my faoiuirs' and his. If he'd ' enough. People don't think I'm a  Split the difference and gone to bed (sentimental  chappie,   but I am;  and  nearly, every night, as* Triggs' cat and  I watched the moon dip behind the  trees, I got grand and beautiful ideas,  which I might have remembered and  written down on this page, but for  the absorbing thought that filled my  mind and left no room for anything  else to stop in it.  One night, indeed, my feelings became too much for me. I repeated  her name three times out loud, and  looked up through my eye-glass, and  waved my cigarette at the moon.  Thereupon Triggs' cat sneaked over  from the other end of the garden-  seat, where he was sitting, and stood  up loin hisi hind legs and poked his  noise .in my ear,  and said,  "Put her out of your mind; give  her up; forget her."  'And the ducks quacked out, " Go  back, go back, go back to her."  And an owl hooted, "Of course, go  back; of course, go back."  Triggs' cat advised me not to mind  the owl. He knew what owls were;  he'd eaten them. They weren't worth  climbing for, and their knowledge of  the  world  was infantile.  Then I laughed,- and told Triggs' cat  that his advice was useless, that I'd  made up my mind, that I was going  back to her. I wanted to marry, and  get away from electric lights and  noise. I desired to buy a place with  trees', and owls and a ghost's walk.  But even in that moment, when the  happy idea cf having Edith all to myself, in an environment of fish-pond,  at  two  or  thereabout,  and  risen  at  eleven or so, I would have said nothing ;   but   no, his  ancestors  went   to  bed at ten, at leaslt ho fancies thoy  did ; .-what's the. use of changing ?  !   The weather chanced to bo fine and  .warm, sO when Triggs retired I generally strolled out into  the grounds  and  smoked   and turned over  ideas.  My host had a grand garden, with a  and other luxuries.   Here I walked by  ghost's   walk  in  it,   and  a fish-pond  night in moonlight while Triggs'slept.  I wandered by the lake and heard the  fish splash, and saw great silver circles widen dimly out into the water,  .where  they had risen.   I listened to  the owls uttering weird  cries ;  ajnd,  from  high above the ripe horse-chestnuts' would  come suddenly  bumping  down, with a rustle through the a.u-  tumn    leaves,    and a   thud on    the  ground, breaking the deep silence of  night.      The ducks  kept  respectable  , hours too.   When  they saw me they  (would hurry with loud nocturnal qack-  ������ngs; across the lake.   A duck will eat  at any or all times'.  7   lAnd here I am on the threshold of  my mystery: Triggs' cat.   We met a  few evenings' after my arrival.     He  jumped from the darkness one night,  rubbed himself against my leg, raised two green, moonlit eyes' to mine,  and mewed.   He was a queer johnny  and  understood   me perfectly.      But  the  extraordinary   thing was' that I  understood him.   Night after night he  sat^by me, while I smoked.   I told him  all about my private concerns', and he  fcurled his whiskers and reasoned quite  ���������differently from Triggs.   His idea was  not to commit yourself to anything:  rto  keep  free,  and   "gather  ye   roses  --while ve may." For, sheer worldliness  piness had entirely departed.  D'yon know th������ Corinthian? It'a  a snappy print, and the mouth-piece  of the Vampire Club. I read it in the  train just to get in touch! with the  world again, for I'd been buried' alive  a week. It didn't seem as smart as  usual, and the jokes struck mie as  just a shade broad; but that was the  fresh atmosphere of Triggs' place still  hanging about my mind, don't you  know.  Edith's eyes looked out of every  page, and I couldn't get interested  in  anything  but  my  own  thoughts".  "I aim," he anslwered, bristling up  like a dog in a fight. "Youi needn't  look like that. It's; all fair in love.  I didn't cut you out. You cut yourself out. Somebody told her why  you'd gone away."  "Who could have ? There's*, only  one knew it."  He tried to lie������to mie, but the lie  stuck In hia throat. It iwaa  what theatrical johnnies' call a  tableau, don't you know; and I could  have slworn I saw Triggs' cat an  Soper's shoulder, winking , those  dammable green eyes' at me.  Certain 'words flashed into my  mind. I had a sort of inspiration  that a chappie only gets' once in a  lifetime.   I Said:  "Ztm asked her to marry you and  your fifty thousand pounds. She  looked into your face and then hung  her head dowin. She'stole her hand  into yours; and (said, 'Haven't you seea  that I love you' 9 Why, dearest, I  love as I have never loved or thought  I teould Jove. It's ;not money I want,  but love. I'll make you a good little,  true little wife; and I thank God for  bringing such happiness into my  life.'"  Soper turned several colors that I  had me-ver seen before anywhere. He  looked at me with his mouth open and  nodded in spite of himself, keeping  tima   to     the   words I said.       And  At length, however, I came on to a  paragraph that did rouse- and chain    '^ge^cat~nodded tZo^-  my attention.     It ran thug. .     j laUffh;edt  "Congratulations  to   cheery    Fred       pcoplo  ^^ ^ ^ eenge of  Soper,   the   genial   'Vampire,' Freddy ^ ^ j h^ ^ ym km)w>  has      dropped      on     good     business |     . ,<rDg NQT M0NEY 1  on good business  to the tune of fifty thousand. Glasses  round, boys."  Now, though I have said (before, and  will say again, bhat SopeT's a fool,  yet he has stray good points, and I'm  glad to hear of this. He possessed an  enormously well-off aunt, and now,  I suppose, she's dead, and better off  than ever, and so's Soper, don't you  know.  It happened ,that the Vampire Club  lay between Charing Cross and my  chambers I therefore dropped in upon  my way, to congratulate Soper. He was  there, but somehow he didn't look  too jolly when he saw me. I told him  that I was1 glad about the taoney,  and he said he was too, and that it  would be useful. Still* he didn't appear jolly. < I made sure he'd have  been brimming over with "side," but  he, was quiet as a worm, and, restless  and shifty. It occurred to mo for a  moment that he might have lamented his auinit, though that didn't seem  human nature, don't you know.  We drank soimie champagne; and  then, feeling that though of course  Soper was a little cad, and didn't  understand women, and had advised  me all wromg about Edith, yet I  might as! well tell hin* how my opinions had changed���������I did so.  I said; "I've altered my mind al-  WANT  BUT  LOVE."  tomcats como after men, with this difference, that many mon are not worldly ; all tomcats are.  Here, then was Triggs urging one  thing all day, and Triggs' cat arguing for quite a different course by  night. I sometimes wonder if any  johnny, since the world began, ever  deliberately asked for a bit of advice  and took it when he'd got it. Personally, I'd pretty nearly made up my  mind about Edith; but I'd made it  up myself, don't you know, quite unaided. So, again and again, the worldly cat with green eye# took his midnight stroll with me. I asked him, as  .we perambulated the ghost's walk, if  he had ever Beem the spectre. He  replied that ho had not, and  didn't  together about E, M.     I've come back  and ghost-walk, and owl, was strong-; fco    ^^   h^.     Good    women are  scarce, don't you know."  Soper turned blue. "Haven't -you  heard?"  he said, faintly.  "Nothing from anybody. I'd rather fancied I should get a line from  Miss  Marchaut, but I didn't."  "You'll find some letters waiting  atl your rooms," he explained.  I asked him if he was ill. Then,  with a horrible effort, he said;  "It's like this. You've changed  your -mind again. Well, other people change thfiir minds: too. They  ought to have sent on her letters  and���������and tmine."  "Yours 1"  "Yes, mine," he answered; and I saw  his fat hands were shaking and his  black eyes  squinting like a crab's.  "The truth is, Miss Marchant felt  she'd made a mistake, and couldn't  live her life with youi, and���������'and���������"  "Who's the new johnny I" ,was all  I could tmanaige to s:ay. J  est   upon   me, I    heard Triggs'  cat  Sneering, cynically,  and saying:  '"Remember the War Office johnny.  Tho girl wouldn't atop in a place like  this a week. Don't flatter yourself  your company will be all she wants.  If she's what I think, she won't care  a straw about owls, except aff firescreens ; she'll want life and society  and   a thousand   things."  I was getting irritated with Triggs'  cat,  and thii finished it.   I said,  "You clear out, you hard-hearted,  misanthropical beggar, or I'll pitch  you: into the fish-pond."  He looked round, blinked hi* green  eyes, and grinned at me.  " Go your way," he said ; "only don't  pretend nobody warned you. They're  all alike. I ought to know. Everything that's feminine ia feline;  therefore a cat understands women  better than men do."  With   which   observation ho took  A NORTH WINDOW IN WINTER.  Don't be discouraged   because you  nave only a north window for   house  plants.   You can have nice specimens  just  the  same, only you must    suit  your plants to the situation and not "���������  try to grow roses and carnations and  other sun-loving plants in a northern  exposure. Ferns will.do splendidly in  a north window, and the best of them  all ia' the Boston or sword fern,   It  has long, drooping fronds, and makes  a handsome  appearance.   Two varieties  of   asparagus   are valuable���������the  usual climbing asparagus and A. plu-  mosus nanus;  the latter  will thrive  finely where other plants would die.  Cyperus is a good north window plant.  It is an annual, a native of southern  marshes,   and  after it has produced  its; bloom and seeds it dies, no matter  what you do for it.   The only thing  is; to out out the flower stalks as fast  asi they come.   Palms do  well in the  north  window,  despite their tropical  home, they can get   along    without -  much sun.   And the Chinese primrose  does better  there than in a    south  window.   For vines', what do you want  better than English and German ivy  and smilax?  TEAi IS POPULAR IN RUSSIA.  Tea was first imported into Russia  in 1638. To-day each inhabitant consumes on the average nearly one  pound annually. The total consumption is 106,000,000 pounds and the total cost about $88,000,000. Tea and  sugar together cost Russia about  $265,000,000 per year. For brandy,  beer and wine the country expends  annually about $560,000,000, ao that  something like a quarter of the whole  revenues of the state are annually  expended on tea, brandy, wine and  beer, with sugar. Exact statistics are  not forthcoming, but it appears that  the* use of tea is increasing rapidly  relative to the akfoholto beverages���������a  consunvmation' devoutly to be wished.  AT THE TABLE.

The  facta are sensational when taken together. The- British have most of  the trade in strong porta where they  have put up handsaine buildings, and  they .have 'most of the concessions. It  iis the expectation that British capital will play the largest part in the''  modernization of China. Frank G.'  Carpenter, who has been, in that part  of the world for some time, contributes to The Saturday Evening, Post  an article giving the most. recent  facts of the situation.     He says:  -  "The English are doing the most of  the foreign banking for China. They  get a percentage on the greatei part  of the quarter of a billion dollars used  in its foreign trade. They have made  the Chinese Government loans up to  the last four or five years; the first  i-wo loans at the close of the Chinese-  Japanese war, each amounting to  ?80,000,000, having been placed with  the English and Germans. There is  one English bank in China which has  deposits of ������80,000,000. It pays six  per cent, on deposits, and, notwithstanding this, declares big dividends.  In a recent transaction it made a  clear profit of f 2,000,000, and its stock  is. now .two hundred per eent, above  "'par. ���������';,.'-.'���������  "There are, in round * numbers,  about 13,421 foreigners in China.

When children are In ,the habit   of  meeting pleasant guests at the family table, they   are    broadened   and  helped as  they cannot bo in a home  which  exercises  no hospitality.     No  matter how easy and gracious are the  family manners    as an    accustomed,  thing, the prasenoe of a guest gives  them an added touch of gravity. Topics  of conversation relating to tho great  world, to politics, to church affairs, to  current  events,  to the pleasant gossip of kindred and acquaintances are  introduced, and the children listen to  and participate in the talk. Nothing  can be a greater mistake than to exclude hospitality from homo life,    if  only for the children's sake. One does  not need to go to.vory groat trouble  or expense, or to spend money beyond  one's*    means    in    order   to   receive  friends at one's board. The true art  of hospitality gives thc best one has,  without   effort  or  excuse,  and   then  lets the guest   fit smoothly into   the  grooves of the family life.  *. .  ���������*������������������!

The bumping handicap is a form  of cycle racing now very popular in  England. The riders are placed five  or ton yards apart from scratch to  limit. When tho pistol is fired each  man. tries to catch the man ahead of  him, and keep from being caught by  the man behind. When caught a  rider must drop out of the race. In  such a aontnst there can be no loafing.  Tha riders, -A course, do not actually  bump against each other.

QUEEN VICTORIA.  One of tlie best evidences that our  dead Queen was held in universal esteem, is the manner in which the press  of all nations is doing honor to her  memory. It, ol* course, goes without  saying, that'there are millions of good  women who live and pass away of whom  little is heard, but this in no way draws  from the many excellent qualities of  our dead Queen. It is no secret that  there are temptations in the way of  royalty that never appear in ordinary  life. Victoria, the Good, had doubtless  her share of them, but she passed  through them all in her long life without even the shadow of a whisper from  any quarter.  It;is not alone as the sovereign of the  greatest nation of the earth she is called  Good, though as such her influence was  always in the interest of humanity. It  is as a wife and mother���������in a word, as a  woman���������her name will ever be in-relief  in the hearts of the British people.  Her funeral procession took place yesterday at 2 o'clock, and Monday next  will be held'in Great Britain as a day of  mourning. After that there will be but  her memory to remain in tlie hearts of  lie British nation.  It has been generally commented on  that the Sandon Paystreak is the only  print of any kind in the province that  has refused in any way to refer to the  death of Queen Victoria. The public, of  course, fully understand that small  secular papers that have to make more  or less reference/'to evervthing that is  passing, cannot ... afford -a great deal of  space to anything; but for a print  published in a British colony and malting its living in a British community.,' to  absolutely refuse to announce in any way  the death of one who is acknowledged  by all nations to have been oiie of the  best of women, and one of the best rulers  world has ever seen, is past explanation  on any reasonable grounds. It is, however, fully in keeping with the print's  declaration of a few days ago that those  Canadians who went to assist the  Mother Country in subduing the Boers  were a lot of fools. It would appear reasonable to many, that a man who baa  adisrepect for everything Christian and  everything   endorsed    by    civilization,  THIN CHILD  If a child is thin, let him  take a little of Scott's emulsion  of cod-liver oil.  Some children like it too  well; begin with a little. A  half-or quarter-teaspoonful is  enough at first, if the stomach  is weak; but increase, as you  find the stomach will bear.   .  The effect is: the little one  takes on strength; gets hungry;  eats and is happy; gets fat���������he  ������ught to be fat���������and gets  healthy.      *  j    We'll send you a little to try if vou like.  \sCO~EBl & BOWNE,   Chemists. Tw-fla&ft  Once or twice a year tlie good housewife has a thorough house cleaning. The  house has been swept and dusted every  day in the year, but the housewife knows  that in spite of vigilance dust accumulates in cracks and corners, and is only  to be removed by special effort.  It's the same way witli the body. You  look after it every day. .You take all  the ordinary precautions of cleanliness  and health. Yet the body needs its  special cleaning to rid it of the accumulations of waste and poisonous matter  which invite disease. Doctor Pierce's  Golden Medical Discovery, taken regularly once or twice a year, would save  many a sicklies1*. It purifies the blood,  strengthens the stomach, and cleanses  the body of poisonous accumulations.

We are  not expressing an r opinion one way .or  other until* the report of the commission  is known ; but to assert in advance that  the commissioners are purchasable and  will neither exercise the necessary  dilligence in their work, nor give the  publican honest report on theirlindingsis  unfair. Tlie plea put forward by McAdams  in justification of his assertions is only a  a declaration in advance that the com ���������  missioners are either incapable or dishonest, or both. As the fight is not  ours on either side, we simply stand  aside and sift the wisdom ot the Sandon  philosopher. There are but two horns  on this dilemma, and on one of which  the smart young man must place himself  to prove the findings of the commission must, be abortive. Either the commissioners are, in his mind, incapable 0,  grappling with, the question through  lack of ability, or haying it they are  without integrity, and will be bought  up before reporting to the government-  the young man has his choice of conclusion.  w. s.

The smart Alio up the gulch appears  to be getting into trouble with the miners ovsr his comments on Chris. Foley's  connection with the 'Chinese commission. As we have often said, and as  history fully proves, third parties in any  legislature never amount to anything/  It is also a fact that the o'd parties invariably,try to buy up' the members of  the third. But all this, however, is irrelevant. The question simply is: Is  Chris. Foley a man of sufficient intelligence, knowledge and integrity to'.properly occupy the position to which he  has been appointed ? If he is, that ii'  all that is required. The commission  will have power to enquire into all matters surrounding the competition of  Chinese labor with that of the whites;  and if Mr. Foley lias the necessary ability to prosecute his enquiry until he si-  cures all the facts; and the necessary  integrity to bring 'them to light in the  face of the government's desire to conceal  them, which MeAdains asserts ia the  government's aim, that is all that is required of him. Of course if he has not  tho necessary ability and intelligence to,  probe the circumstances to the bottom,  the commission will prove a failure, in  that its report will not disclose lo the  public lhat which they desire to know.  Lf again he has the required ability to  do the probing, and is without integrity  he will be bought up and conceal his  discoveries. In a word, if he goes into  the work with a knowledge of his duty,  and a resolution to do it, the country  will   profit'by   his  appointment,    no  Ore Shipments From Three Porks.

"Does it pay to make over men's  clothing for the children J" is frequent-  ly the topic of .conversation1 among  ��������� "mothers, some maintaining that it do&s  pay, others that it does not.  If the mother is not strong, or already has her hands full, and if the  parse is not greatly depleted, it certainly js economy to give the old garments where they are needed and buy  new,   for   tbe   children.     Also it   the  mother has a way of turning her extra time into money, as many women  . have, for   the new   garment   iis more  quickly earned.     But if one has more  time and strength than ready money,  it is just as certainly economy to make  those old garments extend their term  of usefulness, and   (it   is; under    these  circumstances    that  the  mother may  justify herself in that pride and satisfaction that always    accompanies the  successful   making of   something new  from something old. .  Do not reject tho garment because  iti i������ faded or rusty looking, but treat  it; to a bath in dyes after it is ripped  and washed (always the first task in  making over.)  iVesta are of no use whatever, the  pockets spoiling 'them for recutting  and the backs are usually too worn for  .use, so this leaves, simply the buttons,  .which are just the size to use upon  the, legs of short pants. -7  From a coat and trousers one can  usually cut a suit, either a two-piece  suit or a vestee, sometimes called a  "middy" suit, for a boy by piecing the  cloth, or one can squeeze out a reefer  (with a small collar) for. a boy or girl  as large as seven years, old. Bat the  Bailor-collared reefers require very  large, piecea.  It i������ beat to make one job of ripping  and cleansing the discarded clothing.  The cloth can be rolled and put away  if not needed at the time, but it often  happens, where dyes are resorted to,  that cloth, {very unlike .originally, is  made,' by added strength of dye, to  match up very well, pa that one has  more material to work from.  Save, all buttons, . buckles, canvas  interlininga and if they are in good  condition, the linings (often the body  linings of coats are strong enough for  use.) The canvas is xestiffened by  ironing it while very wet. The goods  and lining are washed in warm suds  and. ironed upon the side that is to be  the wrong side in the new garment.  Never allow the iron to stand in one  spot too long, for thei print of the iron  ifl sometimes almost impossible to remove. The cloth must be damp to iron  well and in every heavy goods a scraping! motion of the iron is best. It  prevents shrinking, which gives no  trouble until after -the garment is  made up and exposed It'o dampness,  .when it of course returns to its former  condition and hangs loose from the  lining;.  Tho frock coat or Prince Albert are  both! too cut up for little .besides a  small vestee suit, a Fauntleroy jacket  or a reefer for a five or six-year-old  tot, for the back is useless on account  .of.'its .seams and a new back must be  made from the sleeve uppers, while the  eleeve: unders only cut the uppers for  the. new garment.  The sack or reefer coat has a good  back to cut from, (sometiined whole,  sometimes one-seamed, but the front  & so marred by pockets that it is; almost an impossibility to obtain' a good-  sized jacket from. it [without piecing  the front. The easiest way to obtain  aewt fronts is to lay; the pattern cross.-  .wiaei the bottom; of   the)   old   fronts.  This is of ctourse impossible if the cloth  has an "up and down."*    \    .   I   >    < 1  The good portions of a pair of cast-  off trousers make a pair of email  panta, or for a very \small boy hi3  first! Fauntleroy suit, ��������� this by close  planning. When one has a ' jacket of  the- same goods, one can change about  somewhat. For instance, cut the  pants fronts from tops of sleeves and  use the larger pieces'of trousers for  the coveted sailor collar to a small  reefer.  There seems to be a vast amount of  cloth in a man's overcoat, but it is so  cut that there is barely enough to obtain an overcoat or reefer for the  eight-year-old'.  Italian silk is m'uch stronger for linings than either silesia or farmer's  satin and costs no more than a good  quality ,of the latter. Where extra  warmth is needed, canton flannel in  dark tones is used, the nap aide out,  butl of course should not show as facings. . Machine .stitching or narrow  mohair binding is used for jackets and  vestees, also reefers, but a wide  coarse' mohair braid is .very pretty  upon reefers or bvercoats of coarse  texture.   .  Careful pressing as one goes; along  is the secret of fine tailoring, also good  buttonholes well flattened by the iron.  The cost of a good suit or overcoat for  a child under 10 years old is from ���������������! to  $10. The cost for making over, including silk, new linings, dye, etc., is from  50c to Jl, not counting time. Does it  pay ?   1  (BEAUTIFYING BABY'S NOSE.  Only top often is an otherwise pretty face spoiled by an unsightly nose.  Although ail the care in the world  will not make a Grecian profile out  of a snub nose, yet it should be remembered that a snub nose rightly  treated may be a feature of charm  and piquancy, if not of actual beauty. Guard carefully against the so-  called "bumping the node." as such  childish accidents are almost sure to  more or leas permanently injure not  only the beauty, but the health of that  member.  Like the ear, the rvoSe of the very  young child is.' extremely plastic, and  must be treated accordingly. Where  the nostrils are predisposed to dilate  unnaturally, giving the idea of flatness, the mother or nurse should regularly press them together, Bay,  mornings; and evenings. Where the  nose is a downright "snub" or gives  indication of being undersized, much  encouragement can be given its  growth by-swift, even strokes of the  thumb and forefinger down first and  then outward.  If there are any indications! of catarrhal trouble, a physician should be  consulted immediately and the ailment checked ag quickly hjb possible.  Picking and boring of the nose, habits; which nearly every child is more  or less guilty of, should be strictly  forbidden, not only as) a disgusting  practice, but aa a serious; nienace. to  the comelineeft of the well-developed  organ.  BATHING THE  BABY.  Usually the baby's bath, is the first  event of consequence in his day. If  iti isn't, it should be, for the daily tub  ig a wonderful to'nio to a robust infant. Healthy babies are usually eager for it and enjoy splashing about  as' much aa a duck. The tub bath is  much the easier and quicker method  of -washing the child, but if it is. a  source of fright, a sponge bath must  be substituted.  The temperature of tbe water should  'be 100 degrees; in winter, and about  80 in the heat of summer. If a thermometer, ia not us;ed to ascertain the  warmth of the water, try it with your  elbow, as one's hand is not a trustworthy guide. It will be a surprise to  discover how differently the water  feels to the sensitive elbow.  Should baby be frightened at being  plunged into the bath, try placing  him in the empty' tub seated on a  dry towel, then gently pour the water in���������it usually succeeds in pleasing  him.  A baby's, skin is very delicate, so only  a, pure unscented soap should be used  on it. Genuine castile, or the best quality of. tar soap, are unequalled for  this purpose. A soft piece of linen  damask makes the best wash cloth and  it should be strictly kept for this  purpose alone, and must bo well aired  and dried each time after being used.  Dry the baby carefully, especially  in all the creases. Avoid using much  powder. A little lightly shaken on  absorbs any moisture inadvertantly  left after drying, but too much merely makes uncomfortable ridges,  and chafes the tender flesh. A flannel blanket or apron should be used  to wrap the baby in while drying him,  as! if his wet body is exposed to the  air too rapid evaporation may cause  him to take, cold. When thoroughly  dry, bundled up in the apron, his  mouth should be carefully and gently washed o/ut in cool water, using  an immaculately clean piece of linen  ox. muslin for the purpose.

In 1895 a steel rail on the Great  Northern railway in England broke  into 17 pieces, causing a serious accident. IA committee of the board of  trade appointed to investigate the  cause o������ the breakage has only recently made its! report, after four  years oi work on the subject. The  committee ascertained that the particular rail which broke on the occasion described possessed certain abnormal features the precise origin of  which remains undetermined, but the  investigation led to several discoveries  of scientific and practical importance.  Among these is the surprising effect  of cracks in the* upper, surfaces of  rails. It wM found by experiment  that a rail nickied with a chisel to a  depths, of a sixty-fourth 'of an inch  broke under a weight of GOO pounds  falling from a height of 12. feet.while  the same rail not nicked resisted the  fall of a ton weight from a height ������f  20 feet.

SAME THING.  Johnnie, do you know what* a va-  cuiuifc stare is?  I suppose, pop, it's the same as ���������*  hungry look, isn't it?  From   the   Enterprise,  N..S. .  Mr. C. E. Johnson1 is about 28 years;  old, a gold    miner by occupation,  is.  well known about the mining camps:  in these parts and is thoroughly posted in    his business.     Not long since  Mr.    Johnson chanced to be in Porter's drug store, in Bridge water, when  a case of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills was  being  opened,  and  he  remarked    to  tihe clerk; "I saw the  time when    a  dozen  boxes, of  those  pills  were  of  more valuo to ma than* the best gold  mine in the coxintry."   A reporter of  the Enterprise happened to hear Mr.'  Jolhnaon's    rather  startling    remark  and asked him why he spoke so highly of the pills.   Mr. Johnson's statement  was  as follows; "About    four  years ago    I   was attacked with   la  grippe  which  kept    me    from  work  about three weeks.   I did not have ic  very hard apparently, but it left ma  weak  all the  same.   Anyhow,    after  losing three weeks I concluded to go  tc    work    again.      The  mine  I wan  working in  vfasi making a good deal  of water and I got wet the first day.  That, night   the    old     trouble  osm������  back',  with  tbe addition of  a severe  cold.   I  managed   to  get  rid  of  the  cold, but the whole force of the di������-  eatse settled in my stomach, kidneys  and ,joints,  and boils  broke out    on  my body and limb3. My back was ao  weak  I could    scaroely stand  alone,  I while  food  in every form distressed  me, and I became so    nervous    that  any  unusual  noise    would  overcome  me.     I   tried several sorts of medi-  ������iinies  but  none    seemed   to    do  any  good.   I next went to a doctor.   Hi*  medicine helped me at first j but after  aj short time lost its effect.   He then  changed, the medicine,    but    with no. -  better, result.      About    this    time7*  clergyman who called at the house advised me to   try   Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.   I    gob a box and used them,  but  they did not materially benefit  me.   I had now been some weeks idle  and was feeling desperate.   A friend  strongly advised me tof go to a hospital  for .treatment and I had    just  about    decided  to do so    when    an  acquaintance learning I had taken but  onfe box of the pills suggested that I  should  try  three  boxes  more  before  giving them up.  The matter  of monej;  decided me on trying the pills again.  I got  three boxes and  when used I  .was quite a bit improved.   Oould eat  light   nutritious    food,   slept better,  and felt noticeably stronger. But I  was ait ill an unwell man. As the  plll3 were doing a good work, however, I sent for eight more boxes. I  continued using! them till all were  gone, when I felt that' Iwas restored  to health. All my stomach trouble  had disappeared, I was fully as fleshy  as before the first attack of la grippe,  my 'nerves were solid as ever, and I  knew that work would give strength  to my muscles. So, after about six  months, I went to work again and  have not had a sick day since. One  dozen boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills saved my life and gave me better health since than I had before,  ajmd that is why I said they were  worth more* to me than any gold  mime, for a/11 that a man has he will  give for his life."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by  going to the root of the disease.  They renew and build up the blood,  and strengthen the nerves, thus driving disease from the system. If your  dealer does not keep them, they will  be sefut post paid at 50 cents a box,  or six boxes for ?2.50, by addressing:  the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  mmmm^mmm^m^^M^Mmsmmmmmm^mmmmsmmmsmmmi AGRICULTURAL  WINTER CARE OF HORSES.  The nobility, intelligence and beauty  of the horae are attributes that have  been freely dwelt upon writes' Ohas.  M. Drake. It Lsl m/uchj on account of  fchese that the horse requires better  care than many other domestic animals. Ab a rule, the nearer a domestic animal approaches the human  tibe greater . its need of intelligent  care and feed. Strange as it may  seem, aa animals rise in this: scale of  intelligence the longer the list of maladies to which they are heirs. The  culmination, of course, is the human  family, 'Whose list of maladies is very  long, indeed.  In view of these facts the horse  ought not only to /be thoroughly cared  for aa regards grooming, cleaning the  stable and regular and proper feeding,  but its health should be a matter of  constant watchfulness. This re>  quires the service of a man Who is  not only careful and thorough, but  who possesses! the faculty of observation and willingness bo learn. Such  m man will at once learn to note  wrong physical conditions of the  horae and be apt and prompt in applying thc remedies.  An experience covering more than  a decade in the ownership and care  Oif horses is not devoid of valuable lessons. A horse's condition will nearly  always reflect its oare and feed, and,  like ordinary mirrors, their ahinnig  coats refleot good oare and treatment. ' A regular and thorough  grooming .ia just as important in  winter aa' at any time. The chafing  effect of a good currycomb assists the  skin to perform its functions as an  eliminating organ���������even more important in winter because perspiration iis less. It will not do to neglect  grooming because horses have not  much to dow Removing the manuro  and urine-soaked bedding at least  once a day should be done as surely  aa the -feeding. It will not do to let  manure accumulate in the horse  stable. The bedding should toe abundant and clean. Many a farmer  skimps the bedding as though there  were a lack of material. The more  bedding the tmore manure saved, and  tihe more manure the more straw*  griown. I������ tihe supply of straiw is  abort and it cannot tbe (had use leaves  or shavings. Many a farmer skimps  the bedding beoause the straw is not  very handy ,ar is) outdoors and frozen  and water-soaked. It ought to have  been housed soon after thrashing.  The feed should be sufficiently varied in winter to' meet the demands of  nature, and should not be eo abundant  at* when tibe horse im at work. Many  a horae baa been overfed in winter.  Three full feeds, are not so good as'  tjwo. Two good feeds; and two waterings are enough in winter when  horses are not at work. The grain  ration need not be large at this sea-  Son, but I do not like the idea of taking away all grain. I also like to  feed oome good straw in winter, as it  saves hay, and the horse is not apt to  gorge itself as with hay. Many  feeders are apt to give too much hay,  and an overdistended stomach and  little exercise are an unfavorable  oambraation.  A' SUCCESSFUL FARMER.  The man wiho makes; tbe farm pay  is a busy man, but there are some  things he doea not let saa busy life  prevent attending to. "  He is. never too busy to keep up  with hie work. The way he accomplishes bo touch is to have everything  done in season. He is never too busy  to plan out bis, work, days, weeks,  and oaonthe ahead.  He ifindu time to keep up with modern .methods and discoveries, and ia,  a deep student of those sciences  ���������which apply  to hist business.  He 'finds time to attend the meetings of farmers and listen to'the papers, discussions and lectures given  far his. benefit.  He finds time to attend the poultry, cattle and horse shows, and local  fairs and expositions where agriculture and kindred vocations are given  attention.  He id never too busy to see that  his stock ia rightly treated. Hia  horaefl are carefully groomed after  the day's work, and his hogs and cows  are never without an abundance of  pure, fresh water.  He in never too busy to take oare  of hiis machinery as aeon as through  using it for the season, painting and  oiling all exposed parts.  He finds' time for repairing all the  farm buildings as soon as they need  it, and never neglects; needed repairs.  He finds; time to cut all the weeds  in fence corners and other nooks  about the farm, and does not allow  the road bordering hia farm to grow  weeds and ripen aeedje to need his'  farm.  He findtf time to work his garden,  cultivate hio orchard and care for the  trees and shrubbery about his farm.  He finds time to build and keep  up a neat lawn with choice beds of  flowers and ornamental shrubbery.  FARM HINTS.  Having a place for everything in  the stable saves time and labor. John  may do tha shore* at night and Bill  in the morn, and if such a system is  followed there ia no loss of time or  religion hunting for things one or the  other has used. We have seen farm-  ears look 20 minutes for a pitchfork  ox shovel that they required the use  of for not more than five minutes.  Wlhen you notice anything is out of  order make the needed repairs at  once. The man whose barn door  needed one hinge delayed until it cost  him two binges and other repairs.  It will "pay to make the corncribs  as; near ratproof as possible. Rats'  will not only destroy an immense  amount of corn during a winter, but  will muss ovor a great deal, making  it unfit for food purposes. One of  Ithe cheapest things to use in ^making  corncribs ratproof is fine mesh wire  netting. ' It is cheap and its lasting  qualities are well worth considering.  Keeping good cats at the barn will  aid in keeping down the rat nuisance.  Don't delay any longer in making  the pig pen more comfortable for the  boga that are to be kept over.  BIOK FOWLS.

THE KITCHEN WINDOW.  r Unless* you have tried it, you can  not realise what a delight and ��������� a  comfort a kitchen window full of  thrifty geraniums is, writes a housekeeper who has had success with  plants'. Geraniums, seem to love the  steam and air in a kitchen, and grow  better than any place else. Our window is a broad one with a wide sill,  facing north. The stove is near it;  I have 20 kinds upon the sill and the  crosspiece of the window. In preparing them I slip ail my varieties the  last of July, sticking the slips in a  bed or any place convenient. About  the first, of September I pot them in  flour-inch pots and let them go with  ordinary garden soil. The less rich  the soil, the smaller the pots and tbe  less water you give, the more bloom  is produced.  When cold weather sets in the plants  are full of buds and ready to bloom.  In a winter's time they will grow to  immense proportions in that north  window, and keep blooming all the  while. If the window received the  south sun they would bloom more and  grow less.  ��������� ��������� ���������������������������$������ ��������� ������������������  A BRAVE LITTLE GIRL.

Thero are not two warmer hearts;  in England than those of the Duke  and Duchess of York. , Every Christmas., some hundreds of poor, hungry  little wretches have at least one  hearty tmeal provided for them entire-'  ly by their royal highness. Last year  the poor children in a certain parish  in the east of London were thus regaled, and, to add to their enjoyment,  the duke and duchess went themselves and said a few cheery, heartfelt wards*! to each of the little ones.  Going up to one urchin, who was;  looking , very solemn and somewhat  sad, the duke said to him;  "Now, my littlo man, why such a  dismal face? Let me Jaee if I can't do  something to make you happier.  Would you like some more pudding,'  eh ?"  "Yes," stolidly, but not very politely, said the urchin.  "Yes, what? What ought you to  say, my little fellow?     Yes������������������"  "Yes, if I can get iti" replied the  youth, without moving a muscle of  his faoe.

CHASE'S SYRUP OF LINSEED AND TURPENTINE.  This question is of vital interest-  at this season of the year, when  nearly every newspaper contains reports of one or more deaths' from  thus deadly disease. Praf. J. J.  Walsh, ED., Ph. D.. an exruiinent au-  t'hioini'ty on dieses of the lungs, says  that pneumonia is the result o'f taking cold 'when the system is in a  run-down condition, and of neglecting bo take prompt means of curing  it. The bigimning is with a cough,  chills and aching .at the bones, soreness and tightness Ln the chest, pain  im the lungs, weariness, exhaustion  and sleeplessness'.  It is easy to-; let a cold'run on. You  may say with others, that you always  Ini a cold take care of itself. There  is danger of following this plan onco.  too often. At this season of the year  the lungs seem to unusually susceptible to disease and before you suspect it pneumonia or consumption  has seated itself in ycur system. It is  possible you have tried the cough  mixtures ' which druggists offer to  their customers. These may, do well/  enough for slight coughs, tickling in  thc throat, but thoy are powerless  in the presence of serious disease.  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and  Turpentine is far miore than a cough  remedy. It cures the cold as well aa  tooj-janing and  easing the  cough.  It  takes the pains ou!-* of the bones and  reactors the very seat of disease when  there are pain and tightness in the  chest. It would not b:* too much to  say that Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpsntime has saved thousands of people from pneumonia and  consumption. There is not a village or hamlet in Canada where this,  famous -family . trcatmant is not recognized as a rniw unusually effective cure for croup, bronchitis,  asthma, coughs and colds.  Mrs. F. Dwyer, of Chestcrvillc, says;  "My little girl of three years, had  an attack of bronchial pneumonia. My  husband and I thought she was going  to' leave the worl.'i as her case resisted tha doctors' treatment. I bought  a bottln of Dr. Chase's Syrup of Lin.  seed and Turpentine from our popular  druggist, W. G. Bolster. After tha  first two or three doses the child began to get better, and we are thankful to .say is all -right to-day after seven weeks' sickness."  Don't take anything said to be "juai  aa good." There Ls no throat and lung  medicine just aft good as Dr. Cbase'tf  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine.

One of the great disadvantages of the  Sandon hockeyists is they have not men  enough to form complete teams, in  either Juniors or Seniors. In the match  .with Rossland on Wednesday the Seniors had 'to take two of the Juniors.  This match so tired the two taken, that  they were unable to even play their  average vigor in the Junior match,  which doubtless cost them the game.  Another drawback is the size of the  boys, as man to man their Rossland  competitors were older and 15 pounds  each the heavier. Reliable spectators  iu the. gallery, who watched the game  closely, affirm that two goals counted for  Rossland, were not made, so that Rossland won by abig-'O." Another disappointment of the home team was the  absence of their goal. . It is confidently  believed in a fair contest our Juniors  can yet win.  The Coffin's  Inscription.  London, January 29.���������The following  is the inscription on the coffin of the  Queen:  ''Depositum Serenissmae Potentissi-  mae, et Excellentissima, Pnncipis, Victoria, Dei Gratia, Britanniarium, Re-  ginae, Fidei Defensons, ct India Imper-  atricis, Orbit X^'II Die Januari. Anno  Domini MDCCCCI, Aetatis Suae  LMXXn Regnique Sui LXIV."  The Molly Gibson.  The well known Molly Gibson iriine,  situated on Kokanee creek, is shipping a  fair amount of ore to the smelter. This  week the shipments have onlv been  about 75 tons, but this is only half the  amount that it generally ships. The  small shipments are due to the road being affected bv a thaw about a week ago.  Tlie temperature has now dropped considerably, and the road is once more in  a fair condition, As long as it continues  in this shape the shipments will be as  large as usual.-,  It is no longer a secret even to miners  that our ore producers have their own  troubles. There is a coal famine across  the line, and the Crows Nest people are  taxed to their utmost extent to supply  contracts with old customers. Our new  smelters are, therefore, likely to be seriously handicapped, and to that extent  they will be unable to handle our ore.  As a result there may be a stoppage in  many of the mines, *-,,',  In addition to our made-to-order department, which  will always be kept up to the pink of perfection, we have  put in a fine assortment of all  Our Boots aud Shoes, Underclothing, and, in fact,  all supplies���������just what's wanted in the camp.

Dear Sir.���������It gives me great pleasure  to testify to the success which has attended your system of testing and prescribing   for defective  eyesight in my  case, and to the relief I have obtained  since using the glasses which you supplied.   The particular trouble with my  eyes was considered serious by an eminent eye specialist in Toronto, but with  the aid of your glasses I am enabled to  attend to clerical work and reading for  three or four hours at a stretch without  the  slightest   inconvenience.    In  my  opinion it is not necessary for anyone to  go to outside points in order to secure  a thorough and scientific test for defective vision.  I am, very truly yours,  Frank C. Sewell..  The best appliances, and the  best stock for the accurate fitting  of eyes are to be had at  G.  j  Graduate Opffefan.
