 VOL. -I.���������NO. 37,  SANDON, P������. 0., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Wins Championship and Cup.  The Sandon Junior Hockey Club won  the championship of British Columbia  and the cup���������held by the club two  years in succession���������and was; again  captured for keeps this season at the  ���������Rossland carvival, defeating ��������� the Rossland club by a score of 8 to 2. The Sandon team has now won the championship for three years straight. The  opponents tried' to get the cup by every  means, taking on two senior men, then  a dispute arose, and shortly after the  teams lined up.as follows: .  Rossland. Sandon.  R. Ferrier Goal Hogan  K. Ferrier Point        J. Crawford  Carmichael       ���������   Cover      W. Crawford  MeEvoy Right Wing   E.Crawford  Clothier Centre Hood  Donohue Rush McKinnon  Ewing Left Wing Cliffe  The golden city boys forced the game  at first,  but soon  I tie other team got  down to woik and had everything their  own way, putting up a fast and  strong  (   combination game.  Clothier scored the- first game for  for Rossland from centre in 10 minutes.  In a scrimmage Cliffe, shot the puck  through the opponent's goal in 8 minutes and secured 2 more points in 5 and  3 minutes in succession. McKinnon  added another goal in (5 minutes for the  silver city boys. Hood nut the rubber  through the flags for the visitors one  after another in 3, 2 and 1 minutes. Carmichael put the puck past Hogan, time  .'������ minutes.  Ewing and Donohue were rulled off  for foul play.  . The referee,  Gapt. Sawyer, of ReveU  .^.stoke.acted.'faijuilLthrouijh .t.he,Vanie.^._  ������������������'Some 'San^on,'-'spo,rte"'offered to 'h"et'  !f500 that the Sandon Juniors could down  the Rossland Seniors^  THE LOCAL GRAFT.  Our Junior hockeyists were the only.  Sandon competitors at the Rossland carnival that won glory for thecitv. Differences between Hood and Mall in curling  amenities, it is said, cost the place one  or two trophies. The Junior hockeyists  appear to be invincible, they having  beaten the Rosslandera by a score of 8 to  2. fend secured'the"cup for all time. The  Nelson Tribune appears to be very much  stuck on the prowess of Nelson's seniors,  and to take some of tlie. splink out. of  them we would suggest a. match with  our Juniors. We may have ice for some  time yet. If this cannot be arranged  our Juniors will sit down ; and cry like  Alexander the Great, because of no  more worlds to "conquer.  Sandon Fire Alarms.  For the convenience of the public the  city council has stationed fire alarms at  the following places:   :������������������'.'���������'���������  No. 1���������Miners'.hospital.  No. 2���������H. Giegerich's store.  No. 3���������Miners' Union Hall.  No. 4���������-Opposite Jake "Kelson's.  The alarms consist of ..large triangles  hung on arm projecting posts, with an  iron rod attached by a cord. In case of  tire, the first person discovering it runs  to the nearest triangle and sounds the  alarm, which is quickly taken up by  the others, and the city is aroused in a  few minutes.

Views of Sandon as it is, for sate at  Clifl'e's bookstore.  W. W. Warner is expected to return  to Sandon about March 1st.  Mr. Eli Taylor will shortly remove  with his family to Greenwood.  Armstrong defeated King in a listic  encounter at Rossland last Friday night.  Rufus Stephenson, at one time a politician and publisher in Kent county,  Ont., died at Chatham on Friday.  The Cincinnati authorities stopped  the Jeffries-Ruhlin right on Friday last,  and did themselves credit in so doing.  The anticipated hockey match between Sandon and Revelstoke on Tuesday evening did not materialize, the  latter having wired they could not  come.  H. B. Alexander left last Monday on  a visit to England. It is said his visit  is tor pleasure, but no doubt he will  give the lead market-more than a passing glance while there.  Many of our young people and some hot  so young, went to Whitewater on Thursday to a- concert gotten up there that  evening, in which Miss Moore, lately a  teacher in Sandon,was the leading spirit.  After comparing notes, tlie Kaslo people-have come to the conclusion Prof.  Alexander, the phrenologist, took #1,000  out of that place. Such a drain maybe  the means of defeating the proposed  smelter by-law..  On Tuesday  afternoon  a number o.f  ;the"eitizehs//rnade-'-aiTange.nierit8 fqi>a  dance," which was helVl;that, evening on  the arrival of the Junior  Hockey  Club  from,Rossland.   The dance was held in  the Miners' Union hall, and  the/music  was rendered -by Duffy's orchestra.   .A  large number of the. dancers attended  and spent an enjoyable evening. ���������  ;"' The Tribune does not yet know the  Sandon Juniors defeated  tlie Rossland  Juniors,and are. now champions of the  Kootenay.   If our kids.could only get a  skite at"the best team Nelson can put  together, perhaps   the Tribune would  know all  about 'it.   The report'of the  match'in the Rossland Miner was a credit to that paper, as it showed a desire  for fair play. ���������'.-.-'.'  ! The Rossland. Miner in a well reasoned-  article on the silver-lead mining situation says the duty on pig-lead going into  the United States is-more than thedutv  on ore. This though quite true is still  misleading. The duty on ore going into  the United States is all removed when  the bullion of .that ore is exported���������in  short it is'simply imported in such cases  in bond, while duty on bullion in any  form is simply prohibitory.  A Literary Society has been formed in  connection with the public school. The  election of officers took olace at the  close of the exercises on Friday afternoon, 15th inst., and was very interesting, as manv nominations were made for  the several positions. The poll was as  folio vs:���������Hon. president. Miss B. Rad-  cliffe; president, Waiter Cliffe; vice-  president, to be elected; programme  committee, Misses Ella Taylor, Mabel  Karr, Nettie Radclifl'e, Christine McDonald and Master Win. Karr.  On their way back from Rossland, our  Junior hockevists were prevailed on by  the Silverton club and admirers to stop  over there a day for a friendly match.  They were treated right royally while  there, and gave an exhibition, scoring  5 to 4. As the match was only "for  friendship" all the boys wanted was to  keep out of the lion's jaws. On reaching home they were met at. the depot,  and were cheered until they were tired  of it. An impromptu free dance was  given them in the Miners' Union Hall,  which, though well -attended, would  have had inany more present had a day  fir two's notice been eivon. As it was a  ' most, enjoyable evening was spent.  Fred Kelly went to Spokane last Monday.  ���������Walter C. Adams has returned from  California.  W. A..McIntyre, of Kaslo, spent a few  days with W. 11. Lilly and friends.  The Juvenile hockey boys are trying  to arrange a match with the Nelson "kids  next week.  In electing'Garden in Vancouver the  other day for the Local House, over Mc-  Pherson', the Martin nominee, that city  says it wants tiu more of Joseph.  Mr. Ransom, manager of. the Sovereign, received a blow on the knee cap the  other night while playing hockey, that  caused his leg to swell up badly and give  him much pain.- He has gone to the  ���������springs for some days to give it a rest.  The lead miners and smelters of Canada are arranging to make a request to  the Dominion government for a bounty  of $1 per ton, up to 100 tons per day, on  pig lead produced in Canada. .The  extent of the bounty in no case will  exceed 100 tons a day.  The Silvertonian endorses the '���������Jim"  Hill road from the Boundary-into the  Crow's Nest coal field, as a competing  railway outlet for the coal iields. As far  as the public have any assurances' in the  matter it would only be a competitor to  steal ouircoking coal to build up the  smelter trust acoss the line. If the road  was extended with an absolute guarantee of rates, there would be something  in it.  Mr. G.W. Hughes, one of the Slocan  pioneers, and one of the best known and  largest individual property holders in  the district,.is a very busy man these  times, jllejs.manager and a.large holder in the Idaho minea of '26'.claims; he  has a half interest in the Trade Dollar  and the Sunset, that may yet be amalgamated, in thn Jackson basin, and now  working twenty,men. He is also owner  of the Utica on Paddy's peak, that is  expected yet to be a large property.   ,  ;Tbe Vancouver World advocates a  charter for "Jim" Hill's road into the  Crow's Nest coalfields, because British  Columbia has thousands and thousands  of acres of coal lands. This may be all  very true, but as it would take two or  threeyears-to develop theai. into ship-  pingmines, it is not to the interest of  the province that its mining industry  should starigled that long while Hill is  ..building up the American smehers with  British Columbia coal.  The Argenta and the Sovereign, under  one management, closed down on Monday, letting out. some 30 men. Their  reason is they cannot market their ore.  The American smelter will not take it at  a remunerative figure, and the local in ���������  stitutions have all they can handle.  These two properties never looked as  well before as they do now, and never  were in as good a shape to ship; hut  when the ore can not be marketed, closing is the inevitable.  Mr. Heap, of the Last Chance, has  gone over to Trail to see if some temporary arrangment cannot be made with  that institution to handle the ore of the  mine until permanent arrangements can  be made elsewhere. The Kaslo sampler  is full, and all the storage room about  the mine is full, so that suspension will  have to follow if smelting arrangements  cannot be made. It must be evident to  all the owneis and managers are making  every effort to avert suspension that is  in their power.  We believe the insurance company j  refuses to acknowledge the claim of D. i  J. Robertson it Co. in any shape or  form; Companies than hope to do business in any community cannot afford to  igncre such claims. The risk was made  in good faith, the premium paid, and a  loss followed. I.n any case the company's refusal can only bo based on  purely technical grounds, and if all  business was run on the basis of paying  such debts only as technical law would  compel, it would be a sad strain on the  business morality of the community.  Will The (Jovernment Uyc ?  We should not be a bit surprised if the  coming session of the British Columbia  legislature should turn up the unexpected. The last session was pulled  through in comparative quietness on the  understanding no extraordinary legislation would be introduced, but of course  things cannot, continue that way. The  country is growing and new, radical  legislation must come sooner or later.  Our readers also know there are no  less than six distinct parties represented  in the House, no two of which unite on  any common ground. As long as ��������� legislation to which no, reasonable, objection  can be taken only is introduced, the  majority of the elements, excepting the  Joe Martin faction, which is always to  be regarded as a petrel in the wilderness, will support it and keep the government in power, but when new legislation offering fair grounds for differences of opinion is advanced, a smashup  may be looked for in the twinkling uf an  eye. After the elections, it was distinctly understood a reconstruction of  the.Cabinet was to follow within a year,  through'which some, if not all, of the  conflicting elements were to be considered, but that reconstruction has not  followed, which only renders the footing  of the' administration all the more  slippery.      The    parliamentary    representatives  who will move in passing a law  to prevent strong corporations from appealing  cases to higher courts when poor employes get verdicts,   will  deserve  the'  thanks of the entire community.   An  employe got a verdict for $3,000 against  the Le Roi at Rossland the other for, injuries sustained'in a shaft, where negligence was 'clearly -proven.   And now the  case is to taken to a' higher court;  hot  for'justice.'as it'will  cost the company  more to appeal it than  the amount of  the award, but merely to  defeat  the.  plantiff because he is poor.   This kind  of thing is carried on in Canada to a.most  scandalous extent.     When  a   plaintiff  makes good bis case, clearly in any such  action the award ought to be made final.  Freedom of action sounds well, but when  freedom is used simply to do poor people  out of justice, it becomes serfdom of the  grossest kind.   We repeat honest cases  when poor men are interested, ought-to .,  be limited to the lower courts by act of  parliament.  Sandon Ore Shipments.

Suicide  Ls1 a. most oommoxi. way  of  ridding oneself of bis troubles in China  particularly among the official class,  It is; q;ui,le tho proper  thing to commit suicide if you areNan official and  fail    in your duty in  any particular.  It is a very common thing  for    the  Emperor or the Dowager to hint gently that an official's' usefulness is ended and he had better kill himself. This*  hint is given in a very delicate manner.   The victim will receive a beautiful  little-bos,'probably gold  bound  and gold lined, and in'it,.will .be coiled  aj silken cord, probably also with gold  tips'.   There -will be a note full of the  most delightfully worded compliments,  and  not a suggestion 'of unpleasantness.   The recipient of the box knows  what it means, however, and he knows  that if he  does not strangle himself  with the    cord,   before    twenty-four  hours have passed he will be,,.visited  by   the executioner,  and  off   will go  his' head.  The hint is not always given in this  way. On the road to -Sigan Fu during the flight of tho court the Dowager degraded one of her officials, and  i  ordered him not to follow, the court.  Some weeks after the arrival of tho  royal party at the present capital, this  official, whose offence had been a  "comparatively small'one, thought that  she had'probably forgotten all about  it; and so he went on to Sigan Fu,and  appeared Ln his usuail place, 'When  the Dowager saw him, she exclaimed  in, a tone of surprise: "What, are you  alive yet ?" 'The official went off in  a corner at once., and drank the contents of the bojttle of poison that he  carried with him.  There have been many suicides of  officials since the present trouble came  upon the Chinese Government. Here  ia an incomplete list, of suicides and  deaths of officials, who probably killed themselves, thoiiigjh it is claimed  their deaths were natural:  Hsu     Tung,   Chinese    Bannerman  committed suicide during the fight at  Yamgtis'un.  Li Peng-heng, Chinese of Lower  Manchuria, committed suicide during  the battle at Tung Chow.  (Tseng Chi, Manchu, Tartar General  of tower Manchuria, committed suicide at Moukden cm the approach of  the Russians.  Shon Shan, Manchu', Tartar General  of Heilung Chiang, committed suicide  at Tsitsihar.  Yen Mao, Tartar General of Kivin,  committed suicide at Kiriu after the  assault of the Russians.  Chang Chun, Chief-of-Staff of Tung  Lu, Generalissimo of the Grand Army  of the North, died in Pekin just before  the fighting began.  Lo Tung-Kuang, General commanding' the -Taku forts, committed suicide  daring the fight.  'Nieh-Sze-���������hcng, Provincial Commander-in-Chief, Chihli, killed in the  fight at Tien-tsin.  Sung Chung, Provincial Commander-  Ln Chief of Szechuan, died after the  fight of the Court from  Pekin.  Hsu Ching-Cheng. Senior Vice President of the Board of Civil Appointments, died in Pekin, in July.  Hsu Cheng-yu, Vice-President of  the Board of Punishments, committed  suicide after the fall of Pekin.  [Li Tuan-yu, Chinese Senior Viee-  Presidentof the Board of Censors, died  on the way to Sigan Fu with tho fleeing Court.  Hua Chin-shou, Literary Chancellor  of Fukien, died en route to Pekin on  receipt of the nowfe' thait his entire  family had been massacred near Pekin  by the Boxers.  Fu Jun. ex-Governor of Shantung,  committed suicide with his whole,family when the allies entered Pekin.  !Wang Tutsay, Governor of Knei-  chon, suicided just about the time of  the outbreak.

'  Science is after all your real iconoclast. Not content with toppling the  busy little bee off her. pinnacle of  virtues, it goes on to attack the ant,i  for- so long held a pattern and moral  of .thrift.  Ants, say the wise men, have about  every bad trait of humanity���������they are  lazy, greedy, tyrannous, given to con--  quests, and coveting the territory of  their neighbors. Along with the  territory they oftener than not ta^e  the ' neighbors themselves, holding  thorn-ever after in slavery.  Just haw this comes to pass; is something o������ n puzzle. There are seven  hundred odd spacies of ants duly  classified. Several of these species',  say observers, must possess hypnotic  poiwcr, since they attack, subjugate  and reduce .to slavery other species  which are much bigger, stronger and,  more populous in the nests.  After they have got their slaves  many other queer things happen. The  slaves Lu lioina nests; arc classified,  so many told off as soldiers to defend  the gates, so many for domestic  duties, foraging, the care of eggs and  so on. The soldier ants are- farther  subdivided. The larger number by  constant exercise develop  FIERCE NIPPING JAWS  and poison slings. . The others in  some curious' fashion increase the  size of their heads, especially if they  happen, to be considerably bigger  than their masters.

As the proportions of nicotine do  not satisfactorily explain the poisonous effects of tobacco, H. Thorns assumes . that ,the toxic substance is a  new oil he ha|s detected in tobacco  smoke. This oil produces violent headache, ���������-. trembling, giddiness, etc., and  by treatment with a two per cent,  potash solution yields a phenollike body  with an odor like creosote.  LOOKING FOR BARGAINS.  Mrs. Eargainhunter seems to be  dreadfully worried about the health  of her children.  Why, they looked to me exceptionally strong und well.  Yes; that's what worries her. A  cut-rate drug store has just opened  in the neighborhood and she's crazy  for  an exclude   to see what kind  of  ITu, Lu, Manchu, Viceroy of Chihli, ( bargains they have  ',..' Exceptionally elastic slaves are  transformed into living honey bottles.  They are found with abdomens enormously distended, and full of the honey  dew the working slaves bring in.  Honey-dew, be it said, is a"secret<ion  of the aphides, or plant lice, which'  the ant Blwarms keep in herds within  the negt.'  Ants,    are    passionately    fond    of  honey���������indeed,    of    all a'weet juices.  They are, further, fond of mushroom  and  grow   them  within   their  nests.  They also cultivate certain species of  orchids.,    and    bring    about  distinct  modifications.of the plant form, stinging the young tender stems .so fiercely  that    they  will    become, almost  globular and distill a thin semi-sac-1  charine   juice,    which    the ants    no'  doubt regard as rare wine.     One particular species of orchid, indeed, is so  infested with a virulent stinging ant  that the collection of it is' very dangerous.   The    minute  touched all the ants swarming over it  rush, to the point of attack.     That  Ls,  however,    less curious  than    the  ��������� fact' that the orchid will not flourish  without  the ants, but  withers away  after    a , feeble .   straggling    year's  growth.       ���������  iSome few among slave-holding  ants remain capable. The most part  become utterly demoralized. They  cannot build nests, care for their  young or even feed themselves. Not  a few when the slaves have chosen  and built a new nest ride to it upon a slave's back. Ono species i.������J  noteworthy for  having only  SLAVES  FOR WORKERS,  yet never containing within the nest  any slaves eggl- or young.  Ah' with bees, the queen ant is the  mother of tho q'warm. Unlike bees,  however, there are often several  queend in  the   flame   owarra.     The  workers, arc ��������� rudimentary females. In  slave-making the victors kill all the  perfect ants and take home the others*  Perfect    males    and  females  hav������  wings, which they drop as soon as th������.=  marriage   flight    is; aver.     Worker,  ants, have no wings.     Worker anttf,  ox rather blares,.and the aphis-cows,  by no means, exhaust  the list of ant  dependents.        They    keep      variou*  sjmaller insects as men keep domestic  animals'.     Just why ia not yet clcar.-  The fact remains, though, that in' the  crannies; of some nests  herds] of'   *���������  thousand     almost'    invisible      small  creatures   have  been  found. ,  . A year Ls. the average span of ant  life, but gome species live five years,  and exceptional individuals as  muck  as; seven.     All species show the liveliest concern for their eggs, lugging-  them    up   into    sunshine  upon  fair  days,  and scuttling back  with  them  the, minute the sky is overcast. Upon  a  fickle April day the  eggs may be  moved a half dozen times:    .Theyare  nearly as. regardful of the aphis egga^  Indeed, throughout, they protect their  milch  kine, [shelter  them  well,    and  take pains in  rearing  their young.  Hospitality is not unknown among  ants. ;V stranger guest receives".disi-  tinguLjhed consideration. But wot  to the stranger ant who conios uri-  itwitcd. He is hustled and pummel.  ed, and finally hurt mortally unless  ha saves himself by showing superior  fighting power or possessing  A' CLEAN PAIR OF HEELS.  After he is down a mere squirming  trunk, bereft of legs, unable to bite,  the slaves lay hold on him, and drag  him outside the nest to die. Possibly  it" is an ant superstition that bad  luck follows, a stranger's death ia  thz house.  Formic    acid,   the  distinctive   ant- '  product, ia one of- the greatest vegetable stimulants known.      The earti  of a nest becomes so saturated  with  it that game people explain the famous. Hindoo mango trick by supposing  that the mango seed which comes to  flower and fruit before your eyes;' is  planted  in  a pot of ant-heap  earth.  However that toay be, it is established beyond'cavil that ants of some-  species cultivate, and presumably fertilize their favorite foodstuffs.    Oases   .  in point are the trimmer ants: and fch*  harvesting    ants,    both    of      whick  abound in the State of Texas'.     The  trimmers prune a sort of weed which  is; to their taste so that it shall grow  strong and sturdy.      The harvesting  ants  go    even    beyond  that.      They  clear disks several yards across round  about  their  nests of  all  manner of  vegetation, then plant the disks with  ant rice, which they watch and tend  until   it  ripens',    letting  no  vagrant  or alien twig show its head.  Ants, are entitled to regard thenx  selves as  early discoverers;of, theX-  the    plant is I ray and its. mysterious powers.    Sir  ���������;��������� ������������������ 'John  Lubbock experimented  exbaus1-  tively    as   to  the    effect  of  colored  light upon  the ants' in captivity. H������  laid strips of colored glass over the  nests, first putting the ant eggs all  under one special'color.     In the end  he determined that the ants' did not  much mind red light',, that green light  was also, in a measure, .innocuous, but'  that invariably the eggs  were'hustled from underneath the violet ray������.:  In no case was ihorc than a single egg  left there at the end of two hours),  and oftener than not the removal was!  accomplished.-   within    less    than  an  hour. , ,    ���������   .  DRIEST PLACE IN THE WORLD.  The driest placo in the world is that  of Egypt between Che two lower  falls of the Nile.

Sts U;ivn;>cs Sjinreg No Class���������Rich nnd  VoovAlfke Fall lis Victims���������How This  ������������������'read Trouble .Hoy toe Prevented.  Consumption has been well   named  the great  white pLague. One-sixth of  all the deaths occurring in Canada annually are due to tho ravages of this  terrible disease. Its victims are found  among all classes; rich and poor alike  succumb bo    its    insidious    advance.  Only a few years ago the victim of  consumption   was regarded as incurable,    and    horror stricken    friends  watched the loved one day, by   day  fade    away until   death came    as a  merciful release.   Now, however, it is  known that taken in its earlier stages  consumption is curable, and that by  a proper care  of the  blood���������keeping  pre-disposei to the disease escape its  ravages. Consumption is now classed  among the  preventible diseases, and  those who are pale, easily tired, ema-  symptoms of general debility should  ait once fortify the system by enriching    and    purifying    the blood���������thus  strengthening not only the lungs, but  all parts of the body.  Among those who have escaped a  threatened death froiu consumption is  Mrs. Bobert M'cCracken- of Marsh-  ville, Ont. Mrs. McCraken gives her  experience that it may be of benefit  to some other sufferer.   She says:  "A few years ago I began to experience a general   weakness.   My appetite  was poor; I was very pale; was  troubled with shortness of breath and  a smothering    feeling in    my chest.  Besides    these    symptoms    I became  very nervous,    at    times dizzy    and  faint, and my hands and feet would  get as cold as ice.     As the  trouble'  progressed I began to lose flesh rapidly, and in a short time was only a  shadow    of    my former self.   I had  good medical treatment, but did,not  get relief, and as a harsh cough set  in I began to fear that consumption  had   fastened   itself upon me.     This  was    strengthened    by a knowledge  that several of my ancestors had died  qf  this   terrible    disease.      In    this  rather deplorable condition I was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  I at once procured a supply and hat  not taken them long when I noted a  change for the better.   By the time I  had  taken six or eight boxes I was  able to move around the house again  and felt better and stronger in every  . way.   I continued the use of tho pills  until I had taken a dozen boxes, when  all my old time strength and  vigor  had returned, and I was as well    as  ever.   During  the  time I was  using  the pills my weight increased twenty-  six pounds. Several years hare since  passed, and in that time not a symptom- of my former trouble has made  itself apparent, so that I think I am  safe in saying that my cure is  permanent.   I believe Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills saved, my life,    and I strongly  advise  ailing  women  to give  them a  trial."  A SAD CASE.  'For   God's  Sake,   Cct   Mc   a   Place   to  Die In."  These  words  were uttered a   few  weeks, ago by a poor fellow as he lay  on his death-bed  Ln a hotel at Grav-  enhurst.   A week before he had travelled a whole day to reach the Sanatorium, but on medical examination  it  was. found  that  the disease, consumption,  was too far advanced    to  admit him.      He tried to get board  in Gravenhurst and finally after repeated failures, secured admission to  one of tho hotels.     He soon became  worse and the resident physician   of  the Sanatorium wag called in. When  it  became  known   that  he  had consumption, it was found impossible to  get    attendants,    to    wait  on     bLm  through    fear    of    contagion.      The  hostler of the hotel was asked to help  and on his refusal he was offered ?1  a day extra, but preferred  to   give  up  his  position   rather  than  expose  himself, as    he thought, to the danger of    infection   from  the   patient.  The physician  from the  Sanatroium  had to perform the duties, of nurse  and maid as; well as his own.   When  the poor fellow found that the management of the  hotel  wished to get  him out ho    begged    the doctor for  God's sake to get him a place to die  in.   ��������� The doctor looked after him for  some days,  remaining   with  him on  hie last visit until one o'clock in the  morning.      The    poor    sufferer  was  found dead next day in his bed and  beyond  the    need of    further    help.  Telegrams,   had   been   sent    to   his  friends, and his sister reached. Grav-  enhurst only in  time  to  take away  the dead body of her brother.  Various proposals have been made  to erect suitable structures to commemorate our late beloved Queen.  When her Diamond Jubilee was celebrated four years ago large hospital  undertakings were begun in London  and elsewhere with her special sanction as the best expression of  the nation's, congratulations. To  make it universal, shilling contributions, were called for.  The National Sanitarium Association hag now provided a place in  Gravenhurst for patients who are  able to pay, and this, has proved its  usefulness by * saving hundreds! of  Lives, since it was opened three years  ago. A free hospital for poor patients who cannot pay and who are  in the early stages of the disease is'  now in process of erection near the  Sanatorium.  "For God's: Bake, get me a place to  die," is a call that should be no longer left unanswered. Your dollar  will help to answer it.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a tonio  and not a purgative medicine. They  enrich tho blood from the first doao  to the last and thus bring health aud  strength to every organ in the body.  The genuine pills are sold only In  boxes, with the full name, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Hoopla,"'  printed on the wrapper. If your dealer cannot supply you send direct to  the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brock-  rillo, Out., and the pills will bo mailed post paid at 50 cents a. box, or six  boxes for $2.50.  To round up this work the National, Sanitarium Association desire to  build another hospital, near Toronto, for incurable consumptives. What  better memorial could be erected than  a "Victoria hospital" for such cases?  All the Large cities', of course, will  have their statue of the Queen, but  this; will not be a national undertaking.  We can, however, have the "Victoria Hospital" under the auspices of  the National Sanitarium Association,  and this might be built by contributions from uil over Canada. Every  village and town could send to it  consumptive patients and thus benefit l>y a memorial to the Queen, lc  which  they have contributed.  Humanity demands that something  should bo done; self-protection  ugainst tho danger of contagion demands that something do done; but  tho very doing of this by^excitlng  dread of the diseaso makes it more  difficult for its hopeless victims to  receive the attention necessary to  enable them to die Ln peace.

(Special)'.  ���������A    fortunate    man,   indeed, is   Mr.  Charles Turner   of|   this    place.   For  yea re Mr. Turner has been suffering  with   kidney   disease.   It   gave,   him  great pain, and for the last two    or  three years rheumatism has; added to  his already heavy burdenf of sickness*,  and he has seldom known an hour free  from pain. Not associating the  rheumatism  with the old kidney  trouble,  and despairing of curing the former,  Mr. Turner bought   and   used Dodd's  Kidney Pills to try and dispose of the  (kidney trouble. - He used a few boxes,  and the pain in -his back kept getting.-  less and less, and finally  went away.  All tho unpleasant symptoms of kidney,  trouble    disappeared, and    what    was  still more strange to Mr.  Turner, ho  has   not   since    been   bothered    with  rheumatism.  He is so grateful for the miraculous  results of the treatment that he has;  been cheerfully telling his friends and  neighbors his experience. He saysj:  "Dodd's Kidney Pills have cured me of  a long standing case of kidney rheumatism, and although I took the pills '  for the kidney trouble.! was surprised  to find that when this disease waa  cured the rheumatism also disap-  I have not been troubled since. I  used in all six boxes. The first two  boxes did not appear to do me any  good, but I persevered and the result  is that I am now a healthy  man."  Of course, to thoso, who recognize  Irheumatism as what it, really is, a  symptom of kidney disease, there isf  nothing wonderful about Mr. Turner's  experience. Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure Kidney Trouble, and with  it Rheumatism, Sciatica, Lame Back,  Neuralgia, Heart Trouble, Dropsy,  Diabetes, Bri'ght's Disease and any of  the other many forms in which it may  and often does appear.   ���������  WONDERS OF THE CORN PLANT.

' Heretofore the silver-lead producers have depended on  the American  smelters for the treatment of their ores  and the sale of their' bullion, but now  conditions have arisen  across the  lines,  that force the  producers  to seek other  l  outlets for  the  products.    As again all  the   interests���������labor,   commercial   and  mechanical���������of the  territories  afl'ected,  are wound up in the successful disposal  of the ores, quite naturally the situation  is looked on seriously by all.  The question is a large one, and must  be regarded in all its bearings before it  i3,fully comprehended. All but two or  three comparatively unimportant, smelters across the line have formed one large  trust. , All the railways on the other side  are now virtually owned by (-Jould, Van-  derbilt, Morgan, Rockafeller, Hill and a  few others, and this trust is strongly  identiiied with the smelter trust, many  members of the one being members of  NEXT TO MURDER  A doctor, who keeps his patient at home, when he ought  to send him away���������for money  ������������������ought to be held responsible.

To consider the future of mining in this province while depending on the one outside trust for anything, you must consider how it will allect the united trust���������  the railways and smelters alike.  It is known that our Crow's Nest Pass  coal  is  the  best coal, for cokingj and,   f  therefore, for smelting, in'the world.   It  is also known   that J. J. Hill  and associates of the railway combine, and therefore, of the American smelter trust, has  a large interest in this coal mine, and  that the American  smelters have a contract with the  management'.for nearly  the present output of the mine, to the  detriment of British Columbia smelters,  that are in turn forced to go  farther  for  supplies, pay more for them, and  take  and inferior article.    Hill-is'now before  the Ottawa  gov-mmont 'seeding for a  charter to   build'a railway,more direct  than  his  present   system,  to  the coal  mine.  Under ordinary circumstances people  know  that competition  rn  railways  is  one of the} best things available to develop a country,  and  if   this contemplated    railway  was    to   be   extsnded  throughout British  Columbia for colonization  and  commercial  purposes, as a  competitor with   the-C. P. R., it would  be the bounden  duty of  the. people  to  encourage it.   If, however, it is designed  to be what on the surface it seems to be,  a feeder for the smelter trua', 'o cripple  rivals in thiu country, it is of the utmost  importance it should be unceremoniously defeated,   in  such  an  extremity it  becomes tlie duty of the British Columbia people to set with  decision of purpose if tho country is  to  meet  the expectations of the residents.or reach what  nature designed it to be.    The American  trust practically tell our  producers they  want no more of our ores.   They contend railway freights are ho  high, they  cannot offer our  producers a figure for  freight and treatment they  can  accept,  while some men in a position  to  know  say  the combine cannot get a sufficient  quantity of dry ore to enable them to  smelt what silver-lead  ores they  have  on  hand, and others again  say it js a  ranseinents can be made, which  mean  a serious blow to the country.  As a relief, some people suggest more  smelters at home, which is good aB far  as it goes, but it is not all. It takes  money to build smelters, and even if  that was received, it requires safe  guards to prevent them when built  "rom falling into the hands of the Amer-  can combine���������it requires the husbanding  of our coking coal  for their opertaion;  Wk   sincerely   hope    our   provincial  legislature will not  remote  the subsidy  asked by-Mann and  Mackenzie  for  the  Vancouver, Victoria and  Eastern  railway.   What the legislature should do is  build as much road as it can itself, lease  as  many  connections as possible,  and  then release the entire  length  so made  up, to some  line giving an  outlet, the  hial government   keeping   in   i s own  hands the control of rates on the entire  system so made up.

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 tost for defective vision,  I am, verv truly yours,  Frank C. Skwull.

It Ls a matter of Individual taste  whether skirts made of faced cloths  and materials of similar weight should  be lined or not, but since it is now  well known that much weight does  not necessarily mean warmth, many  , prefer to have their cloth skirts made  up -without linings, or even without  any lining whatever, electing to wear  tine silk underskirt as: a; separate garment. Once this plan is adopted it is  generally continued, especially with  the prevailing long skirts, as they are  50 much more easily lifted. Skirts  made in this way, especially when of  light weight Venetian or face cloth,  require nice facing about 18 inches  deep, which should bo of silk preferably. The next best material is fine  Italian cloth or lansdowne.  The facing must be cut very carefully to correspond with shape of lower edge of skirt. For the amateur the  safest plan is to out it the  required  depth1 to ma.tch the lower edge of the  skirt, and then join the pieces togeth-  its in the cajsa of    the akirt    seams,  stitching the silk with slightly  narrowed turnings, if the same have been  allowed on both, so as to makeit the  least bit loose on the cloth. Next take  a, strip of fine crinoline cut on an exact   bias  in  strips  two   inches  wide,  which1 lay on the inside of cloth edge.  Turn up and baste both together, in  the one-inch turning that will  have  been allowed in cutting out the skirt.  Now place  tho  Lower part  of    skirt  wrongside up over lap board, and -beginning, with the centre of front.baste  the  facing along at its    two edges,  turning the later under as you proceed.   JBe careful to smooth the material, but avoid doing so to the facing, as smoothing one material over  another tightens the upper one. Hem  and press the edge nicely, the top row  of stitches being done invisibly.  tuiry fashion, this use of a small jeweled hand-mirror that is worn as a  chatelaine ornament. In the good old  days of powder, and patches, and wigs  and rouge a mirror at hand- .was a  necessity. The troublesome war paint  often needed a touch of repairs,which  'CARE  OF BROWS  AND LASHES.  The beauties of old, Helen of Troy  and Cleopatra notably, were famous  foir the beauty of their eyes, and no  doubt, they devoted much time to their  care. Some beauties do nowadays, but  many a girl    who has a   pretty eye  in the frank days of Queen Annie,was could enhance its attractiveness by a  always unblushirigly supplied. In  this virtuous twentieth century the  tiny mirrors are worn only for ornament, so their owners say, and very  pretty ornaments they are.  There is no limit to the price one  can pay for one of these little "eyes  of truth," for they are most exquis-r  itely enameled, set with semi-precious stones and made of gold, silver,  ivory, gun metal and gold, or have tortoise shell backs, on which, in gold, a  floral pattern, or the proprietor's initials are delicately wrought. The fin-  eat art of the French goldsmith is  lavished on the framework of many  mirrors, and a small chain and. hook  at the end of the handle makes the  trifle fast at the belt of its wearer.  Soma chatelaine mirrors of no  slight artistic and intrinsic merit, are  framed in bits of old brocade and bul- I  ... i  lion braid, and some of  those    most  closely  copied  after    the  eighteenth  century models,    have sliding backs,,  into which court plaster can be slipped.  Christmas not only benefited fashions to the extent of introducing the  chatelaine mirror, but also brought  prominently forward the small and exquisite necklets of chiseled gold, that  needed but a slight advertisement to  insure  their popularity.  The  necklet  little care. Long, sweeping eyelashes  have been admired by poets and lovers  from time immemorial, and there is  certainly something very beautiful,  and seductive in the long eyelash  sweeping down on a velvet cheek. Not  only does it add to the expression, but  it is a greater safeguard to the eye  from dust and dangerous flying particles. >:'','  If a little vaseline or olive oil be put  upon the lashes each night the growth  will be aided vetry much.  And then about the eyebrow. How  often women aire perfectly neglectful  about them. Shakespeare tells us how  the lover, sighing like a furnace has  writ a " woeful ballad to his'mistress'  eyebrow." but lovers in olden days  were more appreciative of this feature than they are to-day.  ���������Eyebrows j differ with every individual but if nature has not been careful to provide one with those of perfect form much can be done to help  matters. The eyebrow should extend  slightly below the orifice of the eye  at eacih end. .Towiaird the temple it  should terminate in a mere line, and  it should be slightly broader at the  other end.  Upon the peculiar arch and the  breadth " of the eyebrow much depends.   Delicate    features require    a  may be; then a person may consume  as much as tho stomach may bear, and  satisfy    the    appetite    without    the  least reserve.     Nevertheless, nothing  but one dish should be taken. No condiments, no soups nor supplementary]  desserts should be allowed. This system waa recommended by the author  toi a lady .who was slightly obese  and  who  put it into practice    with    the  best results.   The lady observed that  she suffered no inconvenience whatever  from this  diet, and  the result  obtained by several others may be well  understood, as she found by her own  experience that the partaking of only  one dish, whether it be meat, fish or  vegetableSj     brought on  a   sense of  satiety much sooner than if she had  partaken  of    a   variety    of    dishes,  whence the effect of a relative abstinence.  must never be more than a slender ' delicate eyebrow, while a face that is  gold chain clasping the base of the strong in character requires a bolder  throat, and from which a perfect lit-  one.   Never pull hairs out of the brow,  BUyrNG AND STORING FURS.  When examining skins for making  up, ox when purchasing fur garments  a good test as to quality is to blow  briskly against the incline or set of  the fur. If the fibres open readily,  exposing the skin to view, reject the  article; but if the down is so dense  that the breath cannot penetrate it,  or at moist shows a small portion of  the skin, the article may be accepted. Ladies, as a general rule, imagine  that care in putting away furs is all  that is required; they think they can  wear them when and how they please,  provided they expend a few cents for  camphor when they lay them aside.  This idea should bo corrected. More  harm is done to furs by wearing them  for a week after the weather has be-  tle ornament must hang. It is the  preference just now to have these  ornaments show few precious stones.  Gold, wrought in some fine and peculiar design, is valued almost above  jewels, especially when the gold shows  a* variety of natural colors, or is feelingly treated with enamel. Every  necklet bears, as a rule, a name; the  name is given the pattern or figure  in the pendant, and on the lid of the  satin-lined box in which an ornament  reposes, the title of the contents is  lettered in gilt. There are, among oth-  but rather try, by careful brushing,  to train them to grow as you wish. If  you will try brushing your eyebrows  in different directions, you will .see  just how the hair should grow in order to suit your eye best, and then  you should be careful always to brush  it the same way. A very little oil may  be ulsedj, but be caxeful not to use  it often, or it may make them grow  bushy.  Never  eat of  more  than  one  dish  at a meal, no matter what that dish  OUTDONE.  In almost every small town! there is; ���������  some person who is known and  despised for his inquisitive habits.  Even children delight in thwarting  the purposes of such a man, as_ is  shown by the following incident, which  a correspondent furnishes:  Mrs. Stocken wished a friend to  share her cider vinegar, and sent her  eight-year-old son to deliver it. He  returned quickiy, his face wearing a  satisfied smile.  "Mrs. White was much obliged, ma,  but I met Mr. Perkins, just before I  got here. 'He said, Hullo, bub I I  wonder if you've got molasses in that  jug ? -and I said, No; sir, Mr. Perkins".  He said, Got vinegar? and I said, No,  sir, Mr. Perkins. Then he asked, Got  cider if and I told him, No. sir, Mr.  Perkins.

A Terrific Explosion.  VicTOKiA, Feb. 15.���������A special to the  A8Soci������ted Press from Union Bay, where  the mines of the Union Colliery Company are located, says: The town was  tihakcn by a terrific explosion at 10:40  this morning. The source was located  at No. (J shaft, right in town. Crowds  soon gathered at the pit head and will-  inir workers did anything and everything that possibly con I'd be of use.  Sixty-live men, about forty of whom  were whites, were known to he in the  mine at the time, and the force of the  explosion covered the ground about the  pit head with a layer of crushed and  broken mine timber inches thick.  The worst is feared by men of experience.   No. (i shaft is nearly GOO feet deep  and  the  workings arc connected with  those of No 5  shaft, a mile nnd a  half  away.    Woid was sent to  that  place at.  once, and a search party was dispatched  from No. 5  workings.    This  party  was  forced to return  after getting  near  the  doors between 5 and 0 from  encountering afterdamp, which traveled so quickly, that all speed had to be made to  avoid  being overcome.   Fire  is raging  between the  two pits,  probably   from  ignited  timber.    It   is   not   considered  that the coal is fired.    Meanwhile at No.  G attempts are being made to reach the  bottom,  but the cage is only able  to  reach  about two-thirds down,   and  at  present volunteers are straining every  muscle to clear the obstruction  in that  shaft   and   to  reach, the   unfortunates  entombed.  A second explosion occurred in No. 5  shaft at the Union colliery tonight, but  as it had'been expected, "the men had  left the workings and there were no  casualties. This explosion prevents  efforts being made to rescue the entombed miners through No. 5 shaft.  Jobbers and Retailers in  Hardware  and  Mining; Supplies  JVEIiMElF^S  SUPPL  ES.  T!
