 ft  a  i   v    f i iNaJV^i  i;  VOL. 5.���������NO. 32.  SANDON,.B.C., SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  Thursday night was the coldest of the  winter.  Nelson is sending a club to the bon-  spiel.at Winnipeg. c  The United States had 9,852 deaths  by.violence last year.  Clarke and Law of Slocan City have  gone to South Africa.  The Great Northern is to reach Cascade on the 1st of March.  . The Rev. Mr. Leith   is   now  Presbyterian.clergy man at Kaslo.  Geo. Smith got an arm hurt last week  by falling down a shaft iu the Arlington.  R. A. Bradshaw is mayor of Slocan  by one of a majority over A. York, late  mayor.  A. B. Coleman, a prominent mining  man of Pittsburg, Pa., is making a tour  of the Kootenays.        /  J.'W. Croft, of New Denver, was married to Miss Grace McEwing, of Nelson,  on Wednesday last.  Lowery has gone hayseeding to California, lie may escape the dock at  Vancouver this time.    '  The Canadian, Bank of Commerce  through their manager here, Mr. Scott,  has donated $25 as a special prize to be  contested for at the Bonspiel. This will  materially assist in making the affair a  success.  The ladies will have a social evening  in the basement of the Methodist  Church next Thursday at 8P.M. Everybody cordially invited. No fixed charge  will be made, but a collection during  the evening.  The lion and the lamb are at length in  bed together. "Fighting Joe" has decided to support Riley in Victoria instead of opposing. We fancy he saw  that if he resigned his Vancouver seat  in the Local House, he was morally cer  tain to be left out of both houses.  The Silver Glance at Bear Lake has  shipped two cars of high grade ore to  the Trail smelter tlie last two weeks.  If. the returns are as good as expected  iBhipnients will be continued; Large  quantities of ore are being taken out of  the lead "which is four feet in width at  present. There are live 'menworking  on the property.  The Rossland Miners' Union by a  vote decided on Friday to declared the  strike off.. As a matter,of fact there was  nothing to declare, as the mines have  been all running full handed for some  months past. But for the interference  of foreign demagogues, a strike would '  never have been declared. The men  have lost seven months work by it, and  many of them their places for all   time.  The Sandon Rink company intend  giving a ball on Friday eyening next in  the Union Hall. Proceeds to be in aid  of tho rink funds which are much in  need of assistance. On Monday afternoon, Feb. 3rd, the annual general  meeting of thecompany will be held in  Council .Chamber.. A large attendance  of the stockholders and others interested is requested, as business of importance has to be transacted.  Interest in the series of curling games  which terminated last night in the contest between Dr. Gomm and Nick Cav-  anaugh, was intense. The curlers wives  were as enthusiastic as the curlers themselves, and at the close entertained the  players-and spectators to cake and hot  coffee, which were greatly appreciatep  by all. The ladies who provided the  refreshments were Mesdames Atherton,  Vallance, ftomm, Crawford, McLach-  lan and M. L.1 Grimmett.;' Yesterday  evening's contest decides -the winner?  of President M. L. Gn'mmett's prize of  four mackinaw coats, but as we went to  press before the" game was over, we are  unable to giye the names of the successful rink.    .".���������'���������   .:  Mr. Bade, formerly with Mr. Harris  in the .plumbing business, is in town  again in the same capacity.  The Sandon hockey boys succeeded in  making a score of 7 to 1 against Slocan  City, at Slocan on Tuesday night.  Mr. Breen, a Winnipeg hockeyist of  celebrity, was in the city Wednesday  night, and showed our boys a thing or  two in the art.  On' account of the smelter cut the  Whitewater mine may be.enabled to  operate steadily without any shut-down,  which will be a good job for the town.  Mrs. Platts and children left on Wednesday for a visit to her- father's just  south.of the line. Joe Sells has rented  her house and moved in.  E. F. McQueen, druggist, is' closing  up his business in town and returning  his stock to the wholesale house. Many  will regret this as Mr. McQueen is personally a-very decent fellow.  . The Sandon Wholesale Wire &Liquor  House has closed its business stand on  Main street and removed the stock to  the warehouse near the K. & S. track,  where business will be conducted until  times improve.  The surveyors have not yet finished  then- work at the Slocan Star. The  court order simply allows them to go  through the workings to secure information to make maps and drawings.  This and nothing more.  The courts disqualified and unseated  a whole municipal council in Ontario  the other day because they had misapplied the sinking fund money. How  would Sandon's council, fare there that  has never set a cent aside for sinking  fund in any form?  Our hockeyisfs won but 5 of the 12  scores at tie match at Nelson on Monday night. The Miner gives them credit, however, for their old time policy���������  a good, clean game. On the return  /natch here, however, when all their  best players will be in evidence, it is a  moral certainty the score will go the  other way.  Wants Information.���������Mrs. R. A.  Easton, of Stikum, Oregon-, would be  glad to learn the whereabouts of her  son, Robert W. Easton, a.young fellow  of 15or 1G years, who is supposed to  have been in British Columbia last,  year. Easton sometimes goes by the  name of John Dudley, and any information in regard to him will thankfully  be received by his mother or can. be  sent to Rev. D. H. Reid, Phoenix. B.C.  For the sake of economy the new  school law suggests that nominations  and elections to fill vacancies in city  school Boards should be made and held  on the days of municipal nominations  and elections. Our wise council and  clerk, however, know better than this,  and hold them on different days; and  have decided on a "clean sweep" at  that. As they grow older, however,  they will become better learned, and so  so will the taxpayers.   Mark this.  We call attention in another paragraph elsewhere to the blunder our city  council and clerk made in not,holding  the school trustee nominations and elections on the days the council were nominated and elected. Here is the statute  violated (section 24): "The nomination and election of the board of  trustees SHALL BF, HELD AT THE  SAME TIME, and by the same returning officer or officers, when possible and  conducted in the same manner as  the municipal nomination and election  for mayor would be conducted. &c."  There is no provision in the statute for  holding an annual election on any  other day, or in any other way. The  advertised nomination for the 27fch,  Monday next, is therefore strictlv illegal, and men nominated or elected that,  day cannot be trustees, or allowed  toactasRuch. It is well to know this  in advance.  Mines and Mining.  depth,  of ore  Ore is showing up again in the Mollie  Hughes.  ���������   The Washington's force is   being  increased steadily. '  The oil process of concentrating is being tried at the Enterprise.  The Rambler has 100 men on its payroll.   The Enterprisestaff is 40.  The Goodenough dividend was paid  on Jan. 15th of one cent per share. At  a meeting of the above date the directors stated that the mine had to shut  down on account of the low price of  lead. The company will hold their annua! general meeting on April 8th next,  when the lead question will come up  again and will be fully discussed.  One of the most valuable strikes in  the camp of late days is that, on the  Silversmith, one of the Byron N. White  properties, on Tuesday last. It is three  feet in the face of solid exceptionally  high grade ore. Three or four weeks  ago a very large rich body was struck in  the worked lead ,of this property, and  some of the company wanted but," little  said about it until continuity was  reached. This is now more than settled, as the large rich paystreak that followed appeared to beincreasingsteadily  until the valuable width of Tuesday was  uncovered. The Slocan Star was always one of our best properties, and the  Silversmith is certain to add much more  to its laurels.  A good showing of ore has at last heen  struck on the Galena ledge in the long-  crosscut   tunnel'at  the  Last   Chance  mine.   The tunnel is one of the longest j Lyons be returning officer,  in the Slocan and has been  driven fori    Cameron���������Stein,   That the clerk col-  over 2000 feet.   There is   now a double   lect all traders'licenses.  The   auditors' report showed   collections the past six months as follows:  dump, ready for the concentrator when  it starts running.  The earning'capacity of the mine can  be best estimated by stating that in the  last six months the ore taken out of the  mine has placed $60,000 in the treasury,  put improvements on the property  worth $40,000, and paid dividends. This,  is due partly to the remarkable showing that have been made with  Both the quality and quantity  increases.at depth.  City Council.  The council met Monday evening as  usual. The following councilmen took  the oaths of oflice and their seats; R.  Cunning, Mayor; Aids;, Jalland, Stein.  Folliott, Brown, Cameron, Duffy.  The resignation of C.E.Lyons as clerk  ���������Sec. was read, but no action was taken.  The resignation of M. L. Grimmett as  treasurer was read and filed.  A communication from F. L.

The report of Auditor Seweil showed  no provision had yet been made for a  sinking fund; W.H.Lilly had wrongfully taken credit for $95 during his  term of office; that owing to irregularities in forms of records he could not  make a comparison between thefinanc.es  of 1900 and 1901'���������Filed.

This tunnel crossed and was run past  the ledge in a blank spot, when with  change of work it was decided to raise  and drift on what was supposed to he  the vein. Ore was struck on Saturday.  The discovered galena seam is likely to  equal any other in the mine from  present indications. If the ore body  proves satisfactory, stoping will be commenced and the staff increased in -the  Galena tunnel. The company have  spent a fortune in opening the new  workings. This strike Will generally  improve the property.  .$   88.57  Traders licenses    330.00  Liquor       "         3U50.00  Scavenger"           704.50  Police fines &c    4S5.50  Dog tax   W. FT.

B. W. McPhee and A. Coolidge in  speaking of the property said that the  rapid advance in the market value of  the stock was due to the remarkable  showings that have been made, especially between the fifth and sixth levels,  where recent work has developed an  exceptionally rich ore body. The shaft  between the two levels is now down 70  feet, showing four feet of ore, assaying  across the face 445 ounces in silver.  The concentrator plant is completed  and a thoroughly equipped mill is now-  ready for work on. the mine. The concentrator will not be run for about three  months on account of not having water.  A 10 drill air compressor has also been  installed on the property, giving 20  drills to the mine.  The,mine is now earning 2 cents a  share per month, and when the mill  starts that'amount will be doubled. All  this is taken from the clean ore,-while  the concentrates are being placed on the  DISBU[U:EMEXTS.   ;  Paid on debts prevbus  to 1st July        ....$200S.26  "salaries in Sept.  500.55  "       "     before "   634.31  " ���������LiiIvJ-aIv& since..  185.04  "    Water and Light  135.45  " - Lvons                  .;.... 138.00  "   Waite & help  3S3.16  H.

Prince Radziwill,- a representative  from Germany's section of Poland,  has just made an eloquent plea before the Reichstag against the edicts  under ' which Polish children arc  scourged who refuse to study tho  Gorman language. The pica was  vain, however. The Chancellor declared ho would "oppose all efforts  Lo sel back the course of history,  and will sec Unit the Germans in' Lhe  East do nol fall beneath the Polish  Wheels." This policy, moreover, he  says, is followed by Austria and  Russia in their portions of Poland.  It is one of the molhods' which most  of the nations of Continental Europe  take to suppress the aspirations of  peoples whom  they conquer.  When the. 7"three robbers,". Prussia's Frederick tho Groat, Russia's  Catherine II. and Austria's Maria.  Theresa, made their first division of  a part", of-Poland's.'-territory in--.1-770.  the effacement of their language and  literature was predicted by some of  the loaders of .the. conquered people,  though the conquerors-at the outset  disclaimed any such Intention. The  second partition of Poland in 1798  between the same countries'-.and the j  third partition ill 1795, virtually  blotted out Poland, though even yet  the extreme, rigors of tho foreign  rule did not come.  ��������� Bonaparte, who, in his conquering  march across -Europe, emancipated  the peasants of almost every country which he entered from some of  the tyrannies incident to the feud/tl  system, and who, while his pnwur  lasted, lifted the Jews-to a social  equality with the , peoples among  whom thoy lived, attempted to free  Russian' Poland from the Muscovies  yoke, and thus won the Poles' support, but ho was unable to carry  out his promise fully though ho improved temporarily the condition of  some of them.  and neither Lhe Duchess of Fife nor  Princess Charles was given a lump  sum from Lhe country, 8200,000 or  $150,000, when they were married.  ,1-lowcver, they did not lose so very  much, owing to the custom which  has sprung up of laic years of allowing royal brides to accept valuable  presents from outsiders.  Princess Beatrice, who had her  dowry of $150,000 into the bargain,  led off with a wonderful assortment  of wedding gifts. As for 1 ho Duchess  of Fife and Princess Charles of Denmark, a shower of diamonds descended on each, to say nothing of  other desirable bridal offerings.  Princess Victoria, though still unmarried, has not lived without tribute Lo her merits, and some few  years ago she canio in for a nice little lcga.cy of $12,500 from an     old  iriend.   +   Antique Schoolma'am��������� "What is  the matter, .lohnny?"

Finn discipline is still maintained  in ; ome families, as, of course, it  ought to be in all. A certain small  1 oy got a splinter in his foot, and  his mother expiesscd her intention of  pi tting a poultice on the wound.

Twelve operators wero  at work on the wire at the same  Lime, and Lho lines from Paris Lo  Bordeaux were selcclcd for Lhe experiment. The most remarkable  part of the invention is that while,  thousand.*! of words arc being dispatched by Lhe Menardier system,  the same wire can be used .simultaneously for the dispatch of telegrams by the ordinary system at  present in use. M. Menardier employs a series of diapasons for tho  transmission of his messages, which  are gathered at the other end and  started out, as it wore, by an equal j Husband  number of microtolephonic receivers.

Some  years il is in SouLh America ; six  months later it may be oil the coast  of Africa, or again on our South  Atlantic or Pacific coast. The  tramps seem lo scent their prey in  sonic unexplained manner, and by  some law of mutual attraction they  hurry to the scene.  But the ship-building revival of recent years has created revolutions in  shipping interests, and the tramps  have been the first to suffer from it-  Cue of the noteworthy changes in  this respect has been the establishment of many new regular lines of  steamers plying between important,  ports. In formor days the picturesque trar'p steamers carried all the  cargoes between llvcso centers of  commerce touching regularly once or  twice a year at certain ports to pick  up cargoes. But tho now lines have  crowded the tramps out of the trade,  and thoy have been forced to seek  new fields for exploitation.  '  SURE TO GET IT MENDED.

"SATURDAY, JANUARY 25, 1902,  BAIL WAY   CHARGES.  The   railway   companies   of  Canaela  have a different way of   doing business  from everyone else; and this is  especially true of their operations in this province.   Ask them to out freight l-ateB  on  ores in two, and they will tell   you   the  roael3 are not now paying expenses, and  that ore shipments are  not  paying  as  they are.   As abstract statements   they  may bo both absolutely true; but  what  most people contend is it is nota  business answer as business is  run  in   the  country.   Everyone knows the expenses  of a railway are nearly as great when it  i8 next thing to idle, as when comparatively busy. Thehead official costisnear-  ly the same, the station and   trackmen  are the same and   trains   have  to run  empty or loaded.   With a good business  a few more freight hands are required,'  and there is a little more wear on rolling  Btock���������this is about the only difference.  No other business is run on the  principle of making every feature of it profitable. If all the grocers sold all their merchandise on the margin  of  profit  they  have on sugar, for instance, everyone of  them  would   be   bankrupt    in    three  months.   They simply carry the article  at the prices they charge, with the idea  of selling other goods at a better profit.  All newspapur  offices in   Canada  give  their newspapers at less than the costof  production depending on their advertising and job printing for profits, and so  on of almost all other hues of business, j  It is different  with railways  however.  They wantoreshipments tomakemouey  aB well as all other lines of   ti aliie.     It  appears to us as a  business proposition  they should see things differently.   The  grocer knows losses oil a large trade in  sugar bring, profits on a large trade   in  other goods. The newspaper man knows  considerable loss on a large  circulation  for a paper brings a large   profit  in   a  large volume of advertising, but the railways can't see things this way.,  Now supposing they cut their ore  freights in two, every mine in the country would be able to ship at a profit, and  with all shipping, the general merchandise and passenger traffic of the country  would become increased several fold.  What the roads would lose on the ore  business, they would several times over  "makeup on other lines of business, without, as we remarked at the outset,  materially increasing their expenses in  general operation. However, there is  no use in extending these remarks, as  the roads know all this themselves; but  it is without weight with them.  FOOD  FOR  A  YEAR.  ���������  Meats 300 lbs.  Milk  240 qts.  Butter 100 lbs.  Eggs 27 doz.  Vegetables 500 lbs.  This represents a fan ration for one  man for one year.  But some people eat and eat  and yet grow thinner. This  means a defective digestion  and unsuitable food. To the  notice of such persons we present Scott's Emulsion, famous  for its tissue building. Your  physician can tell you how it  does it.  the owners for these amounts. If they  are less than the amounts actually due,  judgments . will be secured for the  amounts, and the properties can be  legally sold undor the judgments. If  the suits are for more than the amounts  actually due, it will be for, the owners to  prove by documents in their possession  that the amount's sued for are excessive.  In such caseB the city will get judgments for the proper amounts. This  latter is the only legal course open to  the council, and we sincerely hope the  best judgment of that body will direct  their Bteps this way.  Manitoba is shown to have 250,000 which  entitles it to ten representativesKand bo  on of the'rest of the country.  Houston the other day said it would  be well for British Columbia .if' it had  more mine owners like J. Roderick  Robertson. This compares well with,-a  cut of that gentleman the Tribune had ���������  in its columns two years ago, where it  represented him with a long, whip driy-  ing the miners, ub slave drivers used to  drive slaves in the Southern States years  ago. John can "jump Jim Crow'' as  well as any other men can do it, when.it  suits his purpose totlo so.        ''"      '   ���������  We'll send you a little to try if you like.

Now, as the city records were  all destroyed in the fire there is no way  open to the council to get at the actual  amount due before that incident by any  property. It may be approximated but  it cannot hi actually acertaind. To  approximate and sell by tax sale under  an approximation, means the defeat of  the sale and the costs thrown on the  city as sure as the sun rises and sets.  This is the warning we want to give the  council.  The proper way is to get the closest  possible estimate from all the document ivi'ilable of the amounts and sue  BE CAREFUL, GENTLEMEN.  We are quite aware the present city  council will not thank us for any recommendation! we may make as they know  so much more than the Editor of this  paper can possibly know about municipal matters; but all the same, if the  Paystreak voices their intentions, in the  interest of the taxpayers, we must raise  a timely note of warning. We are advised by their organ that Mayor Cunning is bound to hold a tax sale, and  sell for arrears all those properties on  which taxes before the fire are unpaid.  We desire to see the city collect everycent  due it; but when there is a right way as  well as a wrong way to collect those  dues, we recommend the right and safe  There  have been  times when  the. wild.  beast3 have  been more  merciful  than  human beings, and spared the, woman  cast to them in the arena. It is astonishing, how little sympathy women <haye  for women. In the home the mistress  sees the maid with the signs of suffering  she recognizes so well, but she does not  lighten the sick girl's load by a touch of  her finger. In the store the forewoman  sees the pallor and exhaustion which  mark womanly weakness, but allows  nothing for them.   It is work or quit.  Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription  makes weak women strong and sick  women well, by curing the womanly  diseases which undermine the health  and sap the strength. " Favorite Prescription" establishes regularity, dries  weakening drains, heals inflammation  and ulceration, and cures female weakness.  "When I first commenced using1 Dr. Pierce's  medicines," writes Mrs. George A. Strong:, of  Gnnsevoort, Saratoga Co., N. Y. ������I was suffering from female weakness, a disagreeable drain,  bearing-down pains, weak nnd tired feeling all  the time. I dragged around in that way for  two years, then I began taking your medicine.  After taking the first bottle I began to feel  better. I took four botlcs of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, two of ' Golden Medical Discovery,' one vial of the ' Pleasant Pellets,' also  used one bottle of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy.  Now I feel like a new person. I can't thank you  enough for your kind advice and the good your  medicine has done me."  " Favorite Prescription " makes weak  women strong, sick women well. Accept no substitute for the medicine which  works wonders for weak women.  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are the  most desirable laxative for delicate  women.  The fuel question is becoming a serious  one with the   smelter  men   and   mine  owners of B.C., and indirectly the whole  people of the province.   It is known the  Crow's Nest coal is the 'best for smelting easily available to the   smelters  of  the Western States and B. C.   Jim Hill  who is largely interested in the  American Smelter Trust saw this   some  time  ago and bought a controlling interest in  the Crow's Nest coal mines; and by the  first of July next will have a road from  the mines to his smelters across the line.  In the natural course of things he will use  his ailvantage for his own personal   interest.   The C. P. R. hold a large  mining property iii the same locality,   but  they are debarred from opening, it  up  for some time through a contract  they  made with the Crow's: Nest   Coal   Co.  some four years ago.    This   of   course  ties up that property.     The  Canadian  government, however, reserved a block  of mining land Bouth of Morrissey creek,  which can be made available   to   block  Hill's intention to strangle  the  B.   C.  smelting enterprise. It is further known  another company, which means Hill in  disguise, is endeayoring to get  hold  of  this to , make  strangulation  complete.  In this, the Federal "Govt, holds the key  to the protection of our enterprise; and  it remains for the representatives of our  province in parliament to see that it is  employed in our protection.     As   the  fuel item constitutes  one-third of  the  cost of smelting the gold-copper ores, it  is easily seen safe-guarding this government property is of vital importance to  the whole country.   Hill's  action  will  be the means of  giving   value   to  the  Similkameen and other coal deposits of  southern British Columbia.  John Houston is now out for manhood  suffrage for municipal elections.������������������ That  would be nice. It would enable' those  who have no financial interests in a city  to foist hundred-year financial burdens  on those who have them. That's Houston's sense of justice and fair play,  In the defeat of his candidate for the  mayoralty of Nelson, John Houston sees  "the handwriting on the wall."

Some people wonder why lead is worth  but 134 cents here while the American  miners get 3>������ cents. In other words  why the B. C. miners do not ship to  the States. There is a duty of 1%  cents on pig lead going into the States.  Formerly the American smelters used  to import our ores in bond, and export  the pig lead ; but since the trust has  refuted to smelt for B. C. our metal  is shut out of that country altogether in  every form. In making comparisons between the mining business in Uub country and the States, John Houston is  ever careful to keep from public view  the better markets open to the American producers.  COAL!  Everybody Wants  A correspondent asks us why some of  the provinces of Canada lose representa-  tation through the last census. The  reason is this: By the constitution  Q.uebec province always has 65 members,  neither more nor less.

Major-General Baden Powell paid  a Hying visit to Rose Hill school,  Tunbridge Wells, recently. It was  here that the general received his  early, education before going to  Charterhouse.

His Majesty's letters are  always most beautiful to read, and  his friends and relatives with whom  he continually corresponds, look forward to them with the greatest interest. King Oscar can speak and  write perfectly in seven different languages. Lord Salisbury, when staying at Stockholm, once said to the  venerable monarch: "What a wonderful linguist your majesty is to be  sure. You have written six letters  this morning, you "tell me, and all in  different languages! Now, can your  majesty write or speak Chinese!"  The King of Sweden looked very  humble as he gently replied: "No,  no; I cannot. What feeble creatures  we men are after all!" Arid then,  more hopefully ai������H with great animation: "But-'never mind. I-have  commenced to learn Chinese, and before long I hope to be able to correspond with the Emperor of China in  his own language!"'His Majesty can j  now accomplish this difficult task  with comparative ease.  While the population has increased  21 psr cent, in the past decade/ the  pension roll has .increased 47 per  cent, in the same period.  What      lovers    swear���������To  until, death.

North Temiscainiiiguo, yue., Jan.  G. (Special).���������At the Douglas Farm  near here lives Mr.W. II." Johnston  who to-day considers himself a very  happy -man indeed.  Tho cause of Mr. Johnston's happiness is his somewhat sudden and  very remarkable recovery from the  most severe case of Rheumatism ever  seen' in this county.  For a long time he suffered with  the Rheumatism which gradually  grew worse till it threatened his life.  His principle trouble was, in his left  side, and- it was so bad that his  neck stiffened so that he could scarcely move it. and, was beginning to  fear Paralysis. The pain would go  away for a time, but return with  greater force, and a strange feature  of his case was that after the pain  would leave any part, it left behind  it that prickly "pins and needles"  sensation.  . J-le thought that perhaps his smoking tobacco had something to do  with it and he gave this up, but received no benefit at all till he used  Dodd's Kidney Pills.  This remedy he found to be a complete and absolute cure for his malady, and very soon after commencing, its use,, the pain began to leave  him and now he is strong and well.  That such an extreme case should  yield so easily and quickly proves  that Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure  any case of Rheumatism.  Cnnse anil Effect.

"Colds that will never be cured." A startling sentence, but you know it to be true. Scarcely a day  passes but some death from consumption, pneumonia or similar ailment emphasizes the truth of this statement.

Find out what treatment has  the best record  of people who know from experience.  If you apply this test to medicines for coughs, colds and similar ailments, you will select Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, because of the extraordinary merits which it possesses, and which have become known to the public generally through years of trial. The sales of this remedy are far ,n excess of any  similar preparation, and have never been so large as during the present 'Season. These two facts are, we believe the strongest evidence that can be produced in verifying the merits of any remedy that has been thoroughly tested for years.  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine is prised especially because of its far-reaching effects, even in  the most serious cases, of bronchitis, whooping cough, croup and asthma,. It is not a mere relief for cough9,  but acts on the whole systean thoroughly, curing tho' cold and removing cliest pains, soreness of the lungs  an* bronchial tubes, and all /inflammation of the respiratory organs.

It is worth while to know that  wagon or bicycle- grease, tar or  pitch can be removed if lard is rubbed on the spots immediately and  afterward it is washed as usual.  Grass stains on children's clothes  often cause a great deal of  ance. If molasses is rubbed on these  spots and the garment is afterward  washed as usual, they will usually  disappear.  Iron rust can generally be removed  if lemon juice and salt is applied,  and the garment laid in the sun for  several hours. Repeat the operation  if the first trial is not successful.  Housekeepers arc very much annoyed by scorched .spots on table  linen or articles of clothing sometimes. A paste can be made which  will remove them entirely. To make  this paste use half an ounce of white  castile soap, finely shaved, two ounces of earth secured at the druggist's,  the juice of two peeled onions and  one cupful of vinegar; stir well and  lot it boil thoroughly. Cool before  spreading over the scorched spot, and  let it remain until dry, then wash  out and the places will have disappeared.  Great care should bo taken in washing delicately tinted shirtwaists or  summer gowns, to prevent fading.  Alum used in the rinsing water will  prevent, green from fading. A handful of salt thrown into the rinsing  water, should be used to set blue.  .Ox-gall.'is good to use for. gray and  brown. Hay water, made by pouring boiling water over hay, is excellent for washing tan or brown linen.  When this is not used, the garments  will soon look faded ancl bleached.  An 1 nr! O't   Filially'* Snlutej.  On lho shores of the. Dosphorus.  near v/ln.-ro that magnificent .smut  opens out into the .Clack Sea. stands  a large house which has long been  occupied by' an English family. The  children knew one of the Russian officers, and used to wave a salute  whenever his ship passed by.  Gradually other Russian ships observed the little exchange of courtesies and sought to emulate it, until  evei-y naval vessel that passed adopted the custom of whistling until  sonic one came out from the house  and waved a response.  Tiie children grew up and went  away to school, and the interchange  of signals was discontinued for a  time, until the Russian ambassador  to Turkey sent a message asking  ihat it might be renewed, as the  Russian sailors thought the welcome  brought them good luck, and looked  for it as they'arrived or sailed away.  The English people, greatly astonished at the importance attached to  their little by-play, gladly resumed  it, and the custom still continues.  Recently the Grand Duke Michael,  innoy-! passing through the Bosphorus on a  Russian gunboat, stood by the captain as they approached the promontory with its English villa. Tho1  captain begged permission to whis-  lle, explaining the custom, and was  told by the Grand Duke that an  acciua-intancc ought to besought with  the family.  Some days later a delegation of officers in full uniform called at "the.  house to express their thanks, and  to beg the ladies of the family to  dine on the gunboat. A toast given  at the dinner by the captain referred  to the friendly salutes, which lie said  had cheered'" many a sailor's heart  when going out into the Black Sea,  and which had done much to generate a kindly feeling toward the whola  English nation.  . *-,,���������:*"  BEES IN THE ARMY.  VALUE OF BUTTER EATING,  One of the favorite remedies of  physicians is cod liver oil, and why  is one of- the mysteries of the world  of .medicine, when all there is about  it is. an. oil or fatty substance that  is easily digested and quite as easily  assimilated, fish oil being -appropriated'with'a small outlay of digestive !  power; .Why cod liver oil, a product of the decomposition of fish refuse, should have ever been chanced  upon when'buttcr and cream are nature's supply, and at once the most  readily obtainable, is unexplainablc.  While anyone can take cream or butter, the consuming of-fish'oil'requires the fortitude of a saint and the  heroism of a martyr; ancl, as we  know, tho oil docs not agree with  many/and is hard of digestion in  others.   ���������  Now, it has been demonstrated  that fresh, unsalted butter is rather  more digestible than oil, and is  pleasant to take on thinly-cut tlices  of bread, and as high as four ounces  a day, of this butter can be eaten  with impunity by even delicate persons, and cream can be taken Lo the  full desire of the patient.  When one is recovering from prostrating sickness and the body needs  nourishing, this fresh butter, it is  now asserted has no equal in building up the wasted tissues of the  body, and as a stimulant very hot,  fresh milk is without a rival,    out-  From Russia, comes a suggestion to  the effect that honey bees -should be  tried as- military messengers in place  of homing pigeons. It is urged that  for such purposes they would be preferable to birds in more than one  way, inasmuch as 'they"could hardly  be intercepted, and it -would certainly .be out of the question for the  most skilful -marksman to hit such a  carrier. As for their size and' small  carrying power, a. bee could transport a good - -deal������������������ in-the-shape of  documents,. if the latter wero transferred by micro-photography to a  minute piece of paper. This piece of  paper might bo fastened to the insect's back, and on tlie arrival of the  little messenger at its destination  the writing"could easily be enlarged.  of a bee is as  pigeon, and its  method of finding its way to its  is the same as that whereby  bird gets back to its cote from  great distance.

On one occasion, whilst examining  the mechanism of the monster revolving lamp belonging to a lighthouse,  a, visitor, wishing to see how many  seconds, would elapse before it completed a revolution, took a. five-dollar gold piece from his pocket and  placed it on the revolving framework. , Watch in hand he patiently  wai ted for the coin to come round  again to where he was'standing, but  no gold piece appeared. The seconds lengthened into minutes, still  no gold-piece.  "Strange!" he exclaimed. "What  can be the reason of it?"  In order to ascertain he walked  around to, the other side of the lamp  and in doing so encountered, one of  the lighthouse men. who touched his  cap. and said, in an undertone,  "Thank you.  sir."

'  Dear Sir:���������  I take great pleasure enclosing express  order for $2,00 amount of   subscription  for your paper for  ensuing  year,   aud  hope that you will  have   a very happy  and prosperous New Year, officially and  personally.    As you are probably aware  I am largely interested in' the ��������� and���������  mineral claims in   your   neighborhood,  upon which   we   have   spent   together  nearly $100,000 in development.   Owing  to the low price of lead and high transportation and treatment   charges,   also  high price of labor we have  suspended  operations during tlie last nine months.',  I have been glad to see that efforts are  being made to over-come these difficulties', and T trust they will be successful  at, an early date, as we are  anxious to  proceed with development of  what   we  believe to be valuable properties a& soon  as we are convinced that we have a fair  show for doing so.  ' 1 remain,  Deaa Sir,  Yours very truly  , A. G. R.  There are a great many people in this  district that sympathise with the miners  . in every complaint tjit>y raise, but have  no feeling for men and companies like  the writer in the foregoing. The fore*  going parties after an expenditure of  .f.100,000 have not yet realized $5,000.  Every dollar of this money has been  paid out directly to Sandon miners, ancl  they in their turn have spent; it again  among the business men of tlie place. To  put the matter mildly theovrnersdistri-  bute their cool cash among tlio people  this way without returns are certainly  as much entitled to legislative and other  ���������consideration as the men who think  they do not get enough for their labor  as miners.
