Many amusing stories are told of Joe  Haines, a comedian' of tho time of  Charles II., sometimes called "Couut"  Haines. It is said that he was arrested  one morning by two bailiffs for a debt  of ������20, when lie saw a bishop to whom  tie "was related passing along in his  coach. With ready resource he immediately saw a loophole for escape, and,  turning to the men, ho said, "Let me  speak to his lordship, to whom I am  well known, and he will pay the-debt  and your charges into the bargain."  Tho bailiffs thought they might venture this, as they were within two or  three yards of the coach, and acceded  to the request. Joe boldly advanced  and took off his hat to the bishop. His  lordship ordered the coach to stop,  when Joe whispered to the divine that  the two men were suffering from such  scruples of conscience that he feared  they would hang themselves, suggesting that his lordship should invite them  to his house and promise to satisfy  them. The bishop agreed, and, calling  to the bailiffs, he said, "You two men  come to me tomorrow morning, and 1  will satisfy you."  Tho men bowed and went away  pleased, and early the next day waited  on his lordship, who, when they were  ushered iu, said, "Well, my men, what  are these scruples of conscience'.'"  "Scruples'?" replied one of thorn. "We  have uo scruples! We are bailiffs, my  lord, who yesterday arrested your cousin, Joe Haines, for a debt of ������20, and  your lordship kindly promised to satisfy us."  ��������� The trick was strange, but the result  was stranger, for his ��������� lordship, either  appreciating its cleverness or consjder-  ing himself bound by the promise he  had unintentionally given, there and  then settled with the men in full.   ���������  THE BULGARIAN.  t/  A   Pecnlinr   Fellovr,   He   Is   Bitiiar   a  Soldier or a Peasant.  It is a strange country of contrasts,  this Bulgaria that people have so long  watched as u danger spot. The peasant  is u heavily built fellow, with a Kal-  ��������� nuik nose if he happens to be pure bred  from the original Samoyede stock,  which is not likely. His language has  become Slavic, which means a language in'which "beefsteak" is "rnpiph-  teki" and "omelet souille" is "omlet  cuphle."  The Bulgarian is a peasant or a soldier. He knows no other trade. As a  farmer the sheep is all in all to him,  food and clothing and companionship,  says a writer in The Era. lie lives in a  hovel, does not understand why he  should be taxed and makes his women  slave in the Held. He is called close-  fisted, churlish and suspicious and has  some of the virtues that often go with  those qualities.  When Bulgaria became practically  free of the sultan, there were many  Turks left In the country. These are  gradually being crowded out, but there  is still a 'mosque in Christian Sofia, and  in the palace of the sobranje, or parliament, where the members have better  accommodations thau the lords of Britain on the Thames embankment, some  twenty Turkish deputies always sit together and exert an influence that they  never could do in their own land by  voting always with the party in power.  Every Saturday the members of the  sobranje are paid at the rate of 15  francs a day, all in silver five franc  pieces. These peasant lawmakers knot  it up in handkerchiefs, grin slowly and  shake the jingling pieces playfully in  one another's face. They are playing  at statesmanship yet, but, fairly well  upon the whole. *  Her Heist Front.  It was at Nantucket one summer that  a city visitor learned.a new way of  displaying one's personal adornments  during a call upon one of the native j  Nantucketei's. It was a nice old lady  who was entertaining the strangers,  and she was very anxious that they  should see everything to advantage  and that even she herself should make  as good an appearance as possible. Unfortunately she had not been forewarned of the visit and was not entirely  prepared for it.  "If I had only known you were coming," she said apologetically, "I should  have bad on my best front. .This is  only my second best, but you can see  the other when you go out, for I always keep it in the front room."  Surely enough, on taking"their leave,  tho visitors were piloted through the  front room, and there in the inside of  the molodeon, when a heavy green barege veil was carefully lifted, a nicely  waved hair piece was to be seen, the  hostess' best "front."  us busy  Work Promptly  is keeping  We can  rs.

The good minister of a Scottish parish had once upon a time a great wish  for an old couple to- become teetotal-'  ers/which they were in nowise eager  to carry out. After much pressing,  however, they consented, laying down  as a condition that they should be allowed to keep a bottle of "Auld Kirk"  for medicinal purposes. About a fortnight afterward John began to feel his  resolution weakening, but he was determined not to be the first to give  way.  In another week,  however,  he collapsed entirely.    "Jenny, woman," he  said, "I've an awfu' pain in my h.eid  Ye micht gie me a wee drnppie an' see  gin it'll dee me ony guid."  "Well, gudeman," she replied, "ye've  owre' late o' askin', for ever sin' that  bottle cam' into the hoose I've been  bothered sae wi' pains i' my heid 't Is  a' dune, an' there's nae drapple left"  <uu������'Mir<uiMtMJi'4rMmun.vuinaMvn  I have no\v iu stock a choice assortment of  ***  sund Jstyparixi-ecl '\7\/"sJr,e']  Remember J am Headquateres for Plumbing and  Sheet Metal Roofing.  N'wnctlons  of Fruit.  The Medicine Brief thus summarizes  the various uses of fruit in relieving  diseased conditions of the body. The  list is worth keeping: Under the category of laxatives, oranges, figs, tamarinds, prunes, mulberries, dates, nectarines and plums may be included,  romogranates, cranberries, blackberries, sumac berries, dewberries, raspberries, barberries, quinces, pears, wild  cherries and medlars are' astringents.  Grapes, peaches, strawberries, whortleberries, prickly pears, black currants  and melon seeds are diuretics. Gooseberries, red and white currants, pumpkins and melons are refrigerants. Lemons, limes and apples are stomachic sedatives.  The Reat  Care.  Quiet and warmth are the medicines  of the four footed philosopher. If a  dog is ailing, he rolls himself into a  ball in a warm corner and eats little or  nothing till he is well. Many times rest  is the only medicine needed by the sick,  but we seldom follow this example.  The biped loses the instinct of the animal. He fumes, frets, takes stimulants  and medicaments and gives no chance  to the recuperative force3 of nature.  Happy Coincidence.  Mrs. Hifly���������Is Mrs. Swagger at  home?

V\  The Minium Review.  SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1903.  Aftor a lapso of about  four years  of  decadence, the Slocan   now   has   every  appearance of assuming a bright future,  and one, if not outdoing   the  years  of  189(3 and 1897, will be equally as- prosperous.   No district on the   continent,  barring none,  ha3   the   resources   for  quality, quantity and richness that this  district possesses! today, but forces over  which we have aocontrol were thecause  of its decline.' First came the slump in  the price of   Bilver   followed   by   labor  troubles and   unwise   legislation.     To  make matters still worse the American  Smelting Trust, which was the principal  purchaser, refused to buy our ores, thus  forcing us Completely out   of   tho  only  then available market.     This   state of  affairs is now being   gradually altered.  Both silver and   lead   are   slowly   but  steadily  rising with   every   indication  of a linn market for the two cormnodi-  this./ The possibilities of a lead famine  in both England and United States will,  if such should transpire, make thiseamp  the liveliest   in its history.     With   a  shortage in the London market of  100,-  030 tons   of  lead,   and  three  or   four  months supply shortage owing to   closing   of   the   American   Trust's  plants  through labor difficulties,hold adecided-  iy bright prospect for both   the   Slocan  and Lardeau.   To till a shortage of this  nature new fields will   have to  bo   exploited, as   those  now  suppling these  markets are ether taxed to   thair   un-  most or failing.     As   the   Slocan   and  Lardena have vast stores of  lead,   and  as they are more generally known, they  will receive tha first   attention   of  the  i  capitalist.   The last bu������   not   least   is j  the bonus so generously granted by the !  Dominion government.   This will have  an immediate stimulant   effect   as  is i  eyidenced by the large number of properties beginning to resume work.  natefrom Convervative sourcee as Puns-  mnir does noteven hold connection with  high councils of the party, and'as a consequence the party is in no way bound  to accept his views. Tim Liberals would  better serve   the  interests of the country by turning  their  ammunition  on  the Conservative, platform, . but   this  they appear not desirous   of   doing  for  the simple reason   that  it  is   impregnable.    To say the least this method  of campaigning on the part of the Liberals is like  the   whimperingB of a child.  The Liberals of this province can only  look to Ottawa to see  what   their  own  party has done towards stopping   the  Oriental immigration to Canada!   We  only nave to draw their attention to the  disallowance of the   Exclusion   Act  to  show the record of the Liberal party, on  theChinese question.  championing. ��������� It would  be  infinitely I j]}0    COIl SCT Vatl VC   PMlOrill.  better for the'party if its presc  plainly  pointed out what was indefensible and  simply refused to defend it. If a party  knew its press would refuse to cover.up  its crooked acts, it would be certain to  walk more circumspectly, and as a result secure a hotter hold.upon .the confidence of the countrv.  The course of the genuine politcal  editor in Canada, aspolitics run nowadays, is unique to say the'least. His  whole effort is directed to blackening  the character, public and private, of his  oppenents, and when driven into a corner, he escapes by attempting to show  hia party is no worse than his opponents. How this is going to improve the  politics of the country, it is most difficult to forsee. As we see things, it must  be productive of more injUiy than good  to the party  whose cause   it  aims   at  The Revikw acknowledges tho receipt  of. a handsome bound volume of "The  Royal Tour of Canada, "1901." Thevol-  nnu is ably edited by Joseph Pope,  C. M. G., under secretary of state, and  is ari interesting, illustrated discription  of thelate tour of the Prince and Princess of Wales through the Dominion.  The edition was printed at the government printing bureau and copies are  being freely circulated all over. The  book will make a welcome additon to  anv librarv.  Thf federal government, has granted  $15,000 towards the movement of Canadian newspapers to secure a better cable  service. The applicants will require lo  put. up a .similar amount before t,h������  !pl5,000 is available, as Mr. Fielding  told the delegation he would put up  dollar,for dollar with them to the ox-  tent of $15,000. The aim of the newspapers is to secure an, all-British cable  service independent of New York.'  The Provincial Liberals are using  some very irrational tactics to "curry  favor with the electorate. The latest  one is the circulation of campaign  thunder, in pamphlet form, of a letter  purported to be written by JanieaDuns-  muir on the Mongolian -question.  The only justification for their action  appears to be to shoulder the reponsi-'  bitity for one man's opinions upon the  who rank and file of the Conservative  party because that' one individual is  a Conservative politically. Whatever  private opinions James Dunsmuir  may entertain on the Chinese'question  or any other concerns only himse'f and  does not pervade any of the plans of  Conservative platform, nor does it.ema-  j     It looks as  w if   a    man's  back   is   the  center of  strength when  he is straining  to lift or haul a  heavy   weight.  But the center  of  strength  is  not   the  back,  but  the  stomach.    There's ho strength in  the  back of a giant if  he's  starving. , All strength is made  from food, and food can only  be   converted   into   strength  when it is perfectly digested  and assimilated.     When the  stomach is diseased, the nutrition of food is lost and physical weakness follows.  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical  Discovery cures diseases of the  stomach and other organs of  digestion and nutrition. It  makes men strong and muscular, by enabling the perfect  digestion and assimilation  of the food eaten.  "I suffered from a very obstinate case of dyspepsia,"  writes R. E. Secord, Esq., of  13 Eastern Av., Toronto, Ontario. "I tried a number  of remedies without success.  .1 was so far gone that I could  not bear any solid food on  my stomach;'felt melancholy  and depressed. Could not  sleep nor work. A friend  recommended your ���������' Golden  Medical Discovery.' I have  taken three bottles and It  has accomplished a permanent cure."  The Medical Adviser,  1 in paper covers, is sent  \free on receipt of 31 one-  cent stamps to pay  customs and mailing only. Address  Dr. 11. V. Pierce,  Buffalo, N.

Interesting Notes.  Cannel coal ignites more rapidly than  bituminous coal, and burns with a  bright yellow flame, splitting in fragments with a cackling noise. It does  riot soil the fingers. At times cannel  coal runs as low in volatile matter as  true bituminous. It is tire richne.*-B of  'this volatile matter inhydrocarbonoils,  not its percentage that constitutes true  cannel.1 ,  Gypsum production of the United  Slates for 1902 was 850,000 tons, of, a  value approaching two million dollars.  It is mainly used in plaster of Paris in  tho manufacture of wall plaster and as  staff. Michigan leads in production,  with Kansas second, and New York-  third. The United States Gypsum company, with head offices in Chicago, control the gypsum mdrustry of the United  States.  Most copper mines possessat the out-  Bet high grade ore; these oxidized ore  bodies vary in dopth from 40 toSOOfect,  and as long as the zones of enrichment  are available to add to the output, high  grades are obtainable for the snicker.  J-Jelow this zone comes the zone of per-  , inanent values, and. this accounts for  the fact that the greater-number of the  ���������largo copper producer's of tha world  yield only low grade ores today.

We have also  seen mining geologists   with  oielc   and.  drill endeavoring to   rive their   k���������mr    weekl>:wi,th exPen������e������ "'Witional, all payable  K        *nc, Ulel1    know-   ni  cash direct each Wednesday from  head  ledge a   tangible   test./  '\Ve   conclude,   0,Bees-   Horse 'lua carriage furnished when  then   tli-it fl.������ ���������,.o���������.;    1     ���������        .   , '   "et!8ss,lry.   -References.

Granted  that the bulk of our immigrants are  of the poorest and  most, ignorant of  our countrymen:     but yon might as  well   judge   of   the   Canadian      people  by the Manitoba fanner's son, whose  ideal of cleverness is good horsemanship,   and   whose  idea  of   a        htrgc  city   is  "Winnipeg.

Snow From a Clear Sky.  The' most wonderful snowstorms of  all that may be seen every winter in  the Adirondacks are those that prevail  when the sky is cloudless. Of those  there are several varieties. Every week  or two wc would see what looked like  a fog form about tho distant hills and  then come drifting across the creek  valley. Doubtless It was a real snow  laden cloud that had been drifting  along until it struck our level (1.800  feet above the sea) in the Adirondacks,  when the conditions became favorable  for tho release of its feathery burden.  ' We saw these clouds fill tho air with  ' flakes that were driven along almost  horizontally by a strong gale.'although  the tops. of our old hemlocks and  Bpruces rose into the clear air and unobstructed sunlight above the highest  level of the snow producing air stratum. We even saw tlie snow so thick  in the air about us that the trunks of  trees six feet above the earth were  not visible, although the treetops could  bo seen, and the sun shone down  through the' shallow ��������� storm with  strength enough to cast distinct shadows. '  - We have stood on a quiet, sunlit hilltop and'looked down into a valley less  than 100 feet below us. where a snowstorm was raging with violence and  the   temperature   was   frigid.  A Mnu In the House.  There is a young criminal lawyer,.in  Memphis. Term., who on the occasion  of his becoming of age began the celebration of his birthday in a way that  caused his household a great deal of  consternation.  On the eve of the fete, shortly after  midnight, the young man's family wore  suddenly startled from their slumbers  by a loud voice in the house calling:  "There's a man iu the house! There's  n man in the house!"  The valiant pater familias rushed  from his room, bearing in his hands a  heavy billet of firewood, to learn the  cause of the disturbance and to capture the intruder. His son was stand-  ingjin the hall, shouting at the top of  his voice.  ���������'Where's the man?" exclaimed the  old gentleman.  "Here, sir; here!" proudly replied the  young man. "This is he. At last I'm  twenty-one!"  Piper I-e^emls.  The Wends, who. we believe, are the  ancestors of the modern Prussians, are  the center of many legends. The Tied  Tipcr of riamelin was a Wend: so also  was the piper of the Harz mountains,  who appeared so many days a year and  played unearthly tunes and whosoever  heard at once fell into a frenzy, from  which there was no escaping. All these  pied and weird pipers assembled once a  year'at the Brocken. where there was a  general carnival, the arch fiend leading the concert on a violin, witches  rolling around and fiddling on the  skulls of horses and the pipers adding  the concert of their unholy instruments.  .       ,.   .  ..,- /  .  Terrific Thrindcr.  The largest rainfall on earth has been  recorded at Chera Pu.nji, on the bay of  Bengal, but the most violent thunderstorms ever observed are probably  those of French Guiana. At Cape Orange, some forty miles south of Cayenne, a French naval officer saw the  rills of the coast hills turned into waterfalls by n cloudburstlike storm,  while the crashing thunder peals were  incessant and often almost deafening,  so much so, indeed, that some of the  sailors began to mutter long forgotten  prayers, probably thinking the day of  judgment near at hand.  1 The Btifj Bible.  v The bug' Bible was printed in "15-19  by tho authority of Edward VI., and  its curiosity lies in the rendering of  the fifth verse of the Ninety-first  Psalm, which, as we know, runs.  ."Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night nor for' the arrow which  flieth by day." but in the above version ran, "So"thou shalt uot node to  be afraid of any bngges by night."  Ludicrous as this sounds, it is not  etymologically without justification.  "Bug" is derived from the Welsh word  "bwg."' which meant a hobgoblin or  terrifying specter, a signification traceable in the word commonly in use today���������"bugbear"���������and Shakespeare once  or twice uses the word in this primary  1 sense, notably when he makes Hamlet  1 say, "Such bugs and goblins in my  life."       ���������  ��������� Fine China.  Fine china 'needs care in washing  and drying and should never be placed  in nervous or indifferent hands. Treated lovingly, china will last for years  and even generations.' Only a piece  should be put in the tub at one time,  the soap should be made into puds before putting anything in, and the water must be very warm, not'hot. Finally rinse in water that's just the  same���������warm. A good supply of fine,  soft towels Is a necessity, and, thus  equipped, the washing of china is not  a hard task. China will shine beautifully if wiped out of clear warm water.  FasMonaMe Tailing, ^  e Lead Them All.  CT_'CrAtM_KWJ__  The Nobbiest Suitings to Select  from.  Made in the fastest Style.

About one woman in three cannot  wear turquoises without turning them  green. Some turquoises will turn green  after being worn by any woman.

One jewel house  has tried the experiment of having all  its employees go around with dozens  of turquoises strapped next to their  skin to try to detect the green ones,  but even when they have passed this  test some of them will be brought back  by customers, having turned a hideous  green. No reason is known for the  changing of color.  Short Line  TO  St. Paul, Duluth, Minneapolis, Chicago  AND ALL POINTS EAST  Seattle, Tacoma,. Victoria, Portland  AND ALL PACIFIC COAST POINTS.
