Array ,05  \%  VOL. 4.���������NO. k>.f)\  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  V  IV  Tlie Slocan Star Mine.  Diseription of the Workings on  this Rich Sandon Property.  This is ono of the largest properties of  the Slocan, and one of its best stand bvs.  ' Id is  located a mile and a quarter from  Sandon up Sandon  creek, and   was lo-  ' cated by Bruce White, who is still inter-  i ested in it, and J. Sandon, in October,  181)1. Altogether it consists of 18claims,  and is now owned   by  the  Byron N.  White Company.  Shoitly after Bruce White located the  one claim, he and Chas. Chambers and  others located seven more"; others have  been acquired by purchase. The main  ledge, or that-on which most of the  ' work has. been done, varies in width  from 6 to 33 feet ol" quartz and spathic  iron, interspersed with zinc and galena.  The finding now is .for ihe most  part pure galena, a well charged concentrating ore, grey copper indicating the  best value in galena is frequently seen;  ' and cube and steel galena are most frequent in the clean ore. Figuring is more  precise, but in' general terms we may  say the clean ore .of, the property runs  from LOO to 150 ozs. of silver, and from  55 to 75. per cent lead. The concentrates from 70 to. 85 ozs. silver and 65  per cent, lead. Carbonates are rarely-  seen on .the property. The main or  most worked ledge- cuts through the  slate, quartz ancl limestone formations,  as do most of the ledges of the district,  at right angles with a dip of perhaps 50  degrees from the level.  Most of the ore is shipped as clean,  though a large- body goes ��������� through the  concentrator of 140 tons a day-capacity;  (in charge, of Mr.,C. Culver, Mr. Oscar.  White being superintendent, and Mr,  Gankr'ogers foreman of the mine, Mr.  Sharp operating the air compressor that  furnishes power wherever required. In  full operation the property' employs  now about 120 men.. The ore is hauled  from Nos. 4 and 5 to the concentrator  by a gravity' tram, probably 1250 feet  long, and the^ concentrates, go to the  cars by wagons. On-the works are two  sorting houses, one at No. 4 tunnel and  the other at No..5. There are four  blacksmiths employed/three at the.mine  and the other at the mill. .-���������-,'  The compressor is a four drill steam  power of 50 horse power capacity. Later  water power will  be employed.   There  is a timber.shed 30 x 60 at the mouth of  each tunnel, where all the timbering required is made and fitted before being  sent into the works.   In   operations  a  method, almost peculiar to itself, lias  been adopted because of ���������"-the unusual  width of the ledge, the tunnels for the  most part  hug   the  overhanging wall,  and rarely reaching the foot wall.   At  the outset of tho working, after; driving  tunnels, stopinir to the surface was done,  later crosscutting, drifring lower down  and stoping to the tunnel above.   This  lame cutting entailed very heavy timbering, which was done to perfection,  making every foot of the working as safe  as safe can be-.   With .this gteping upward to intermediate stoping tunnels  vitli unequal widths, pillars of cbncen-  1 trating ore have been left standing for  'protection,  though not absolutely required. The writer entered No. 5 tunnel  through a crosBcutof 900 feet to, the vein,  where the drift runs 500 feet westerly.  There are five upraises, from  this level  which is extended oh the vein some 900  feet easterly, under Sandon  creek   into  theopposite mountain, and fit tho end  of 550 feet, a machine driven by compressed air is operating a hoist- sinking  on the ore body to a prospective No. 6  tunnel. Tho shaft is now down 180 feet,  with adrift both ways, totaling200 feet  on the ore body,   The intention is to  drive No. fi crosscut later and upraise to  this abaft.  There is on the.  property a Pelron  water wheel '��������� for  forcing  pure air into  special workings when required, but its  employment is not often called for.  No. 5 is so'far thje lowest level with a  crosscut to the surface. Above it 150  feet is No. 4. This is,on the vein for a  length of 800 feet. Expansions of the  body in this 33 feet in width have been  met with. A crosscut to the surface  from this is 575 feet in length.  A diatanceof 200 feet from No. 4 takes  one to No. 3 level, which is 500 feet long  with a crosscut of 150 feet to the surface.  A climb of 100 feet from No. 3 brings one  to No. 2, which is 200 feet long with a  crosscut of 100'feet to the surface, and  an������upraise of 150 feet from No. 2 lands  the visitor on the surface, where he can  see many of "the kingdoms of the earth"  at least snow capped hills in every  direction.  Between every two levels are intermediates, in which much stoping to the  surface, in the earlier days of the mine,  was done. This is wholly abandoned on  the lower workings, internal drifting on  the lead taking its place, followed by  upraisings to intermediates in regular  order, in which much stoping is now  being done. -'.This makes the interior of  the hill a regular network of mining  operations. From what is found in No.  6 level it is quite evident the ore body  of the property loses nothing by depth.  THE LOCAL GRAFT.  Grand Forks is going to have a big 1st  .of July celebration.  C.J. Smith is now bookkeeper at the  Alamo concentrator.  Fi L. Christie was in Kaslo for a few  days on legal business.  Mr. and Mrs. H. Giegerich, of Kaslo,  are visiting inthe east.  ���������'��������� Mrs. J. K.. Clark, of New Denver, is  visiting in Salt Lake City. ��������� *���������'"'  Mr. Wilson, school'inspector, visited  the Sandon public school on Wednesday last.  The citizens of New Denver and  Silverton had to fight high water for the  past week.  Hbgan and GIcricrosF. two men arrested at Phoenix for a holdup, are well  known in Sandon.  H. Byers & Co. are building a shed  back of' their..ietore,-,to be used as ah.  paint and oil warehouse. ;  O. W. Harrington and Mian ,MV S.  Funk were married in Nelson last week;  They will now reside in Slocan.     - .  B. J. Perry, at one time manager of  the Noble Five mine, was married to  Miss Mary Keapock at Victoria.   -<���������  E. Pi Bremner, the labor commissioner, was the means of settling  the machinists' strike at Vancouver.  The washing away of the flume does  not look as if the promised economy of  the new council was goirig to pan out.  Sadie Witemore at Nelson the other  day mistook the fire alarm for the  messenger service, and had to pay the  city authorities $25 for the mistake.  G. W. Grimmett, the jeweller, after  fighting the flood for a few days, is now  ready for business again. Entrace at  the back'door until the flume is repaired.  If the Dunsmuir party want to retain  the confidence of this province,they will  break up this government by patchwork  quilt policy. Even Conservatives would  prefer a straight Grit government to a  coalition on corrupt lines.  For a whilo on Tuesday after the flume  burst, it looked as if our hall of municipal legislation, the two houses of salvation and many haunts of sure damnation  in the west end of the town, would be  flooded out, and outbuildings go sailing  down the creek.  The Knights of Pythias presented  Bro. Sanford with a very costly silver  fruit dish, from the shop of G.W. Grimmett. on Wednesday evening, just before leaving for Rossland. Surely their  friends have not forgotton Mr. and  Mrs. Sanford. It in needless to say  Mr. Sanford made a happy reply to the  address accompanying the presentation.  The past week has been the first of  our hot weather.  J. C. Ryan, a mining man of Kaslo,  was in town on Wednesday.  D. J. Robertson has given R.E. Lyons  the management of his furniture store  here.  The Filbert cafe has been re-opened  under the management of Bennett and  Lloyd.  According to John Houston the refinery will be in operation in Nelson in  a few days.  A large gang of men were sent up from  Nelson on Monday to repair the C. P. R.  trestle near the Ivanhoe concentrator;  The C. P. R. engine was unable to  come after tho cars on Tuesday morning  because of a washout of the bridge below  the city Monday night.  The flood on Tuesday cabbaged everything Mayor Lovatt's garden, including  his hot bed of Spanish onions, besides a  quantity of lettuce and hoese radish.  Wm. Todd, who was under treatment  for his eyes in Spokane some time ago  returned there yesterday. For a while  P>iday morning he was totally blind,  bnt by noon he could see a little. His  many friends here, on hearing of his  misfortune, subscribed nearly $60 in a  few hours, which when presented to him  he thankfully declined to accept.  A letter from a C; P. R. official at  Montreal to the editor of this paper  says the chances for a refinery are  bright, which means the C. P. R; have  their minds on building one, but this, of  course, does not deprive private parties  from going on with one also. There  will soon be room for two in Canada.  Clifton Seale in writing to a friend  . describes ;hie..trip thrqugh-the Similkameen valley. He says around Princeton  section there are farming,fruitgrowing,  cattle ranching and mining���������coal having  been discovered in different localities.  Farming is mostly carried on on a small  scale, growing . fruits and vegetables  principally. The climate is delightful.  The visit of Mr. Byron N. White for,  the last few days has led many to suppose it meant the suspension of work on  the Star. As, however, the officials  bought supplies for the boarding house  for the full staff yesterday, it may be  taken for granted there will be no  change the coming month. The low  price of lead is the only, thing that  would lead to suspension.  Had the flume construction and destruction occurred during the days of  the old mayor and council, there are  some people in town who would have  had the "extravagant incapacity" painted on cotton, tacked on the sides of a  mule cart and run up and down street  for a fortnight. As it is they are like a  sheep before its shearer���������"they openeth  not their mouths." Won't the gulchite  give us a bar on the subject?  The coroner's jury were unable to  make any further headway with their  enquiry, and so brought in a verdict  certifying the body found in the creek  was that of a stillborn infant, thrown  into the creek by some unknown hand.  The woman named last week acknowledged the birth of a stillborn child, Dr.  Power acknowledged attendance, and  this is all that could be proved. It  could not even be shown the body found  was that of the child referred to. Of  course, under the circumstances, there  was no course open to the jury but the  one they took.  It is quite true, as some.people argue,  that domestic help cannot be got in  British Columbia if Mongolian immigration is not allowed; that many low  grade ores cannot be shipped, and much  land difficult to clear, cannot be brought  under: cultivation if cheap Mongolian  labor is not available; but this does not  properly dispose of the labor problem.  The question at issue is that national  existence cannot be jeopardised by allowing this labor to come in. If Mongolians are allowed in. the white labor  element'must go out. There are no two  sides to the issue.  Tlie Payne Mining Company.  Affairs in a Prosperous Condition and  will Install New Machinery.  The annual meeting of the Payne Consolidated Mining Company was held on  Thursday afternoon, May 23rd, in the  offices of the company. Composed almost entirely of Montreal capitalists,  this company owns large and valuable  mining properties in British Columbia.  The chair was occupied by the president, Lieut.-Col. FJ C. Henshaw, who  read his annual report as well as that of  the manager of the company, Mr.  Zwicky. After describing the progress  and development of the company's property and the necessity of installing a  compressor and concentrator, the report  stated that there was every prospect of  finding a large body of valuable ore in  the deeper working of the mine. The  report of the engineer pointed out that  it was necessary to install some kind of  power to operate below the No. 5 levej,  without delay. It also stated that with  a suitable plant, it would be possible to  reduce the cost of operation by from 15  to 20 per cent. Commenting on the report of the manager, the president made  an encouraging speech, in which he said  that the directors had at all times carried on the affairs of the company in  the interest of the shareholders. The  financial statement showed the company  had a balance on hand of $116,867. The  report were unanimously adopted.  An interesting report was then made  by'Mr.'F. B. Mathis, one of the directors  of the company, and a mining engineer  who recently visited the company's  minejihiBritish Columbia. .Hegavethje  result of a minute. examination . of - th e  property; and suggested many improvements in the working of the property,  and the installation of new machinery.  The following board of directors was  ;then , elected :^-Lieut.-Col. Henshaw,  Hon. L.'J. Forget, Wm. Hansom. F. B  Mathys, W. G. Ross, A. W. McCune, F.  E. Sargent, Rudolphe Forget and Chas.  E..L. Porteous.' At a subsequent meeting of the directors Lieut.-Col. Henphaw  was re-elected president and Hon. L. J.  Forget,.vice-president.���������Montreal Star.  .Neil Mclnnes. succeeds  "Wm.

It is said G. W. Grimmett is going to  sue the corportion for damages to his  building and business by the flood.  Rev. M>. Pye, who takes charge of the  Methodist church here, arrived in town  Thursday evening, accompanied by his  wife and child,  Five or six school pupils went over to  New Denver on Monday to try the High  School entrance examination, before  Inspector Wilson.  Services will bo held in the Catholic  and Methodist churches next Sunday as  usual. Until the flume and sidewalk  are repaired the entrance to these edifices will be at the back.  Twenty men were laid ofi* at the Last  Chance on Thursday on account of surface water rushing in some of the workings. Fifteen are still employed and  the others will be taken on again as  soon as the water subsides.  R. C. Clute, D. Munn, C. Foley and  F. J. Deane, trie Chinese commiusioners,  came in on the K. & S. yesterday, and  went out the same day. A. II. Crawford, reporter for the commissioners,  and T. D. Pruyn, reporter for the province, were also along. They got but  little information here, though Crawford got some experience. He stepped  on a loose plank in the sidewalk that  tipped, and came near breaking his  neck.  M������aM������WBtb������������lli(.ttlJILI������JUt'lHl������J������lll!IH1.JIM,[milllii4.i.JJ..i The Girl in the Red Tarn.  r  rr'  ' When Uncle Morrison came down  by t'he Londoa express, and almost insisted on my going off with/ him that  very afternoon to the Radnorshire  mountains, "for a little fishing, Leo,"  I was. not at all unwilling/ to oblige  him and myself.  "But why, my dear Richard," asked  my mother, "have you taken to such  a very ugly-coloured wig?" I also  wanted to know.  "Never mind the wig, Mary," said  Uncle M. "Get the boy's, portmanteau  packed. We can then catch the 2.5  train."  As, it was already ono o'clock', it  -.will be seen he was in a hurry. My  mother was easily persuaded. Uncle  M. was her favorite brother, and she  never tired of lamenting that he  was allied in business���������the City Road  ���������with such a rough, unpresentable  person as Mat Lho w Barker. The two  of them were Rowley, Limited, and  steel toys were their trade. He was  decidedly unusual in the train. I  couldn't get him to,talk, though ordinarily ho chatted like any girl.  "A headache, my boy. Let me have  a nap," he said, at length.  "Whether he ,ro-alIy slept or not I  don't know, but I do know that I  Smiled very much at him. His tawny  wig had shifted to ono side, showing  that ivoried old pate of his. ..['      '  At the Forest Junction, w*hero wc  changed for Greendale Station, ho  briskened -considerably. So did I,  for it was there I was privileged to  do the girl with tho red tarn! o'shan-  ter some slight service. She had' impressed me .when she got into the  train,'and I was pleased to see her  again.  "Could you tell me," she asked, with  the sweetest little lisp and blush, "if  I iwait   tins; side for Greendale?"  "You do," said I. "We also are-'going to Greendale, so you can, if you  like, get into our carriage."  I -smiled,- and sho smiled, but we  progressed no more than that just  then. She threw poor old Undo M.  a look which might have meant anything. I took it to mean that she had  no intention of. putting herself alone  into a compartment with two strange  men'. To my astonishment, I noticed that the old chap had saddled his  nose with blue glasses. When we  were in the train again I demanded  an explanation.  , "My boy," said tho uncle, "I must  ask you not to trouble me with idle  questions. I am twenty-five years  your senior, and may be supposed to  have very good reasons for all I  do."  That night we wore Snugly fixed in  the Anglers' 'Rest, one of the most  precious of fishermen's quarters,  with the hills soaring behind the inn,  speckled all too thinly with big old  hollies and oaks���������relics of the famous  Shallot Forest, in which our Norman  friends hunted the boar and the; stag.  It was respectable fishing weather-  southerly wind . and a broken sky���������  and the stream was in nice order. But,  to my increased surprise, I could not  get Uncle M. out of the house; neither  the next day, nor the next, nor the  next. Ho sat and wrote and read,  and .was in fair spirits only when  the lamp was lit of an evening, and  bo had had two tots of! whisky. Hitherto I had never known him to touch  a (second glass of toddy at ono Bitting.  Had 1 toot had compensation of a  very fascinating kind,CT should havo  been quite angry with Uncle M."But  in the meantime, I had again meti the  girl in the red tarn o' shantcr���������-twice  in three days, to be cor rout.- She, too,  was fishing, and already her brown  eyes, sunny smule, gentle speech, and  capital handling of a rod had done for  me. She was staying 'at the schoolmistress's cottage, half a mile from  the inn. Our landlord knew nothing  a-bout hor, except/ that her name  ���������waa Cbesson, and that hor landlady  thought her a very bold creature to  be amusing herse-lf all alone in such,,  a mannish way. She had, it| appeared, borrowed rod and flies from the  schoolmistress's son���������Bill Martin���������for  solid consideration.  What with tho mystery of Uncle  M.'s peculiarities and the joy I began  to feel in seeing aad thinking' of Miss  Chcsson, I didn't do much good with  the fish. On the fourth morning I  went a step farther on tho downward path. There she was, a couple  of hundred yards or so below", the inn,  her cap liko a red berry on, the greensward. I saw her land a nice one,  and then stood.opposite to her, with  the stream between us.  "How mean of you, Miss Chesson,"  I said, "to steal another march on  me!"  "Mean?" said she, as if startled, and  away slipped her rod. It was one  fish more, taking hor unawares.  I was in the water in a moment;  recklessly, too, for T turned turtle in  a hole, and came up on her bank,a  pretty picture of a dripping idiot. But  I secured the rod all right.' Hor regrets on my behalf wero simplv divine.  "If you talk like that about such,  a trifle, my dear girl," I //aid: impetuously, "I shall be compelled, to tell you  you can catch hearts as cleverly as  trout. Anyway, you've caught mine,  so there!" She breathed fast,.with  a deeper blush  than beforo.  "Don't!" she whispered. "And you  must run home and change."  "Bother tho change Mario!" said I.  That vjp.tf her other name, and I was  getting  reckless.  But all the response she made to  that audacious touch was to pick up  her rod and basket, say, "Please go  homo at once," and turn her cherry-  ripe cheeks another way. She marched off, and so did I. However, I had  taken the plunge, and really, on reflection, I was extremely glad of it,  and on the whole not dissatisfied with  the result���������as a start, you know.   ;  XL  ^ Uncle M*. wag rather mad when he  heard about me and Marie. He did  that through the schoolmistress'���������  hatched-faccd gossip! She looked in  at the inn, and, chancing to clash  with the uncle in the corridor, dived  in with an "Excuse mo, sir, the liberty I'm taking," which ended in. a  calm, impudent inquiry if he could  tell her anything about Miss Chesson. After that it was straight  sailing for the Worthy woman to mention our meetings by the stream���������ay,  and in  the worn-out old forest also.  "I only wanted to make sure .sho  was respectable," sho explained. All  this Uncle M1. related to mo in the  evening. He xose to heights on the  subject. ���������:        :  "Whatever you do, don't make an  ass of yourself, Leo!" he said. ; -Then  ho sighed. "There's quite enough  of that in the family as, it is."  "You're a nice old man to talk in  that prudent, way," I said. "How  about your wig, your specs, and youri  sticking to the house hero, when you,  came down, you said, expressly to  fish?" That hit him.  "You're right, my, boy," he said  wearily���������"you're right. But I can't  explain things. It'* a miserable  business.      That's' all I can say."  Of course then I had him on the  grill. I'did my best to dynamite the  mystery out of him. No good. Tho  only benefit I gained was his> apparent  licence of our goings-on. A deal it  would have mattered otherwise, for  by the end of the week wo wore engaged. I let fly at him with this sweet  news. Then, indeed, he threw off his  lethargy, shoved an old deerstalker  on the top of that sandy" shag of his,  and took up his rod.  "My future must bo subordinated  to yours, my boy," he said, as solemnly as if he wore in a pulpit,, and tho  words wero his text. , "Lot me see  her." iv  Well, I know whore fihe might be,  fast enough; but somehow I pitied  her, und did not take him; straight  to her. Wo juggled among mossy  boulders and trickles of water, with  thickish birch and holly-scrub by the  waterside. But, lo and behold! suddenly Uncle M. yelled out, asi if he  had a thron in his foot, and therei was  his wig dangling in tho ain at tho  end of Miss Marie's line. The shy,  clever, dear littio minx!  ShcN.1 thrown from the steop bank  right above us. It was quite a funny introduction after that.  Uncle M. did tlhc most sensible  thing possible in treating it as a  huge joke.  "Odd that this should happen in', my  very  first    fortnight's declension  to  false hair!" he said gaily.  Marie was disappointing. She had  little to say, and her looks' of sorrow  seemed to be absurdly overdone. Sho  even answered Uncle M.'s cool questions about her parentage much as( if  ahe were a dull little maid at' school.  But he  liked her.  "My boy,'.' he said afterwards, "she's  a good girl, though it's mighty1 queer  her (sporting', about here by herself.  Something motherly, don't you know,  in her looks!"  "What rot!'.' Said I, with a roar.  I'll tell her that."  And tell her I did that evening, under the moon, which looked splendid,  balanced on' the crest of our particular hill of the forest. We mot by  the old churchyard, with 'absolute  contempt for ghosts.  "He says you have a motherly eye,  pet," I said, drawing her to me. But  she wouldn't be drawn.  "Leo," she whispered, "I must confess something  to you."  . "All right," said I.   "Overrun tho  constable ?"'  "Leo," sho said, very earnestly indeed, "can't you sieo that my being  hero and all isn't an accident? What  dear, dense, simple creatures men  are! And your uncle is one, too,  and I want you to get him out of  the country immediately���������to-night,  or the first thing to-morrow morning."  "Why?" said L     '" ' '���������"' "   "Because���������because he must. Tell  him Lhe writ is issued for his arrest.  I don't, believe for an instant he is  guilty of any crime, but that Mr.  Barker is, and your uncle is jointly  responsible. Promise you will persuade him to run away." , It was the  first time she had shown passion-f Actually, too, there was the shin������ of  tears in her pretty eyes.  "Go on!" I said. ' "Tell mo everything."  "Not until you promise to persuade  him."   '������������������; \        ,  "What's the figure?" ������������������  She whispered-something preposterous. "AIL fraudulently appropriated by Mr. Barker," she added. "Now  promise. It will bo too late this timo  to-morrow." Of course, I understood now.   '  "You are employed by the prosecuting solicitors, I suppose"? I said.  Then if she didn't burst into' sobs.  "I-I thought I should like it," she  stuttered.   "I wanted to earn my own  living, and Ralph and father said I.  had a good enough head on my���������my  shoulders."  "They told no lie there," said I.  "They have tho case in hand," she  went  on.   "But don't wait.      Go to  him, and tell him what I say.     I'll  hunt down that Mir. Barker, if I die  doing it."   I meditated rapidly, then  just took her head between myi hands  and kissed her.  "Traiterous little hussy!" I said.  "And to-morrow?"  "There is no time for to-morrows.  Go! And go-ood-night, dear." Away,  she whisked, and back to the inn ������  hustled. :  And then, sure enough, my old! sim-.  plcton of a relative let his cat out,  He had been done brown by that old  brute- Barker, who had cleared off,  with the proceeds, and left poor Uncle  M. to face the music. After long  argument I got him definitely to prepare for the Southampton-Havre  route to Paris the next ovening. Innocent though he was, he could not  be allowed to consign himself to a  prison.      One  thing more.  A mysterious intuition got up up at  the unholy hour of five the next  morning. There was a train from  Greendale at 5.50. Sho might���������ay, ami  She was on the platform, with a  white, set, self-sacrificial faco, which,  however, speedily matched her tarn  for colour when sho saw me. I just  took her by tho arm, lifted, hor bag,  and led her back to the? hamlet. And,  believe me, I scarcely let her out of  my sight again till we'd fixed things  to such a point that there was no  opening even for a young lady-detective (amateur) to give me the slip.  Uncle M- got to France, and I saw  Marie back to town. She was by  then steeled to bear the' prodigious  blowing-up which her father and brother were bound to have, and had,  ready for her. It was her first and  last flutter as a '"tec."���������London Answers..   ,    : i  A Farmer's Trials;  A SUFFERER FOR YEARS, THE  RESULT OF A FALL.

My  back  trouble was finally aggravated by indigestion, and as this affected my appetite,  I was  very, much  run  down,  ifinally a few, years ago 1" was attacked   with . la  grippe,   which   developed  into pneumonia. My family doctor succeeded in conquering this, trouble, but  for six months I .was not able to leave  the house,. an;d all, that he could do  for    me    did    not    bring  back my,  strength/Finally  Iconsulted  another doctor, but .with no better .result.  In fact before I stopped doctoring I  had   tried  four  different  physicians,  and all the  thne  instead of getting  better I was growing weaker.

On fine days I' would go out for    a  while, but   ������ftan I would become so  weak and dizzy that I could scarcely  get  back to) the house.   One day,   a  neighbor asked me why I did not try  Dri Williams* Pink Pills.     I thought  the advfce might be worth taking and  I sent fox a'half dozen boxes of the  pills.   Before  they were gone    there  was 'no doubt I bad found a medicine  that  was  helping mo,  and  I got    a  further,   supply.   I continued    taking  the pills for about .three months, and  before I quit using them I'was feeling bettor and stronger then  I had  done for yeans.   Ev������ory   symptom of  the  weakness that  had followed    la  grippe was gone, and my back which  had bothered me far so many years,  was almost as strong as in boyhood!

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 1901.  Intolerance   appears   to   go band in  band with civilization.   We raise pur  bands in  holy horror against some of  the usages of barbarous countries, but  many of them are at least no more inconsistent or intolerant than those of  our most enlightened countries.   Take  tlie press of Toronto, one of the most  enlightened cities of Canada,  and it is  teeming with denunciations of what is  called desecration of the Sabbath, visiting Hanlan's Island by boat.   Theieare  in Toronto thousands of people, including young and old,  who'ar3 forced to  work 10 and even 12   hours   a  day   six  days in the week, to eke out a bare living, so low are the wages; and because  these take a few hours on Sunday visiting the island instead of all  the day in  the churches,  the   usage is   being  denounced by the "Christians" as a desecration of the Sabbath.   We are aware  the masses of Christian countries believe  in observing the Sabbath, arid those who  do not believe in it, would find it beneficial to their bodies- as  well   as  their  minds if they did; but the  mortal who  has to put in GO or 70 hours a week hard  work, requires  some recreation on the  Sabbath as well as psalm singing.   The  laws of health cieated by nature's God  demand it, and there is no valid reason  why the demand should  not be obeyed.  There is, we may say,  in   this   connection,   one   way  in  which   these  good  Christian people could serve   both   the  Lord and tlieir'fellow man, and enforce  Sabbath  observance    besides  without  injuring anyone, if the}1 would only take  it���������that is have laws and usages enforced by which the wage earners of the  city would   get  a   half  holiday in  the  middle ol the week without any reduction  of wages, which are now hardly  sufficient to'keep   body and   soul   together, and see that half holiday was  spent visiting Hanlan's Island instead  of Sundays.   If this  reform was made  and enforced, the working man could  have his recreation  and the   Sabbath  could be properly observed at the same  time.   Let, we say,  those   religionists  take the bull by the horns this,way, and  they will be accomplishing more good  than they can ever hope to accomplish  with present cries and lamentations.

Confusion and stagnation followed, and both have been uppermost  ever since. The promised refinery will,  no doubt, when commenced, assist in  again enlivening the country; bat nothing short of a return of the investment  of outside capital will give us the semblance of the activity of bygone days;  and this can only be got by an assurance  our mining laws are permanent. We  are not in a country that allows highhanded action ; but if the people would  only come to a iirm resolve to drown  agitators and tinpot politicians as they  re-appear with new nostrums, it will be  a happy day for tlie country..  accordingly have increased  the indemnity of the members and senators by 50  per cent.   No one expects representatives to work   for  nothing, but at tbe  same time it is not expected the people  should   pay   them  yearly salaries   for  three or four months' work.   The idea  of sessional allowance at all is simply as  the  name   implies   to   indemnify   tlie  members from loss for time devoted to  the State���������nothing more and nothing  less.   If   there  was   only some way of  separating the men and paying them for  just what they lire worth to the country,  it is a question if averaged up the total  would not fall short of what they formerly have received.   They all in addition to the one thousand formerly paid,'  had been getting milage   back  and forward   with   railway   passes    in    their  pockets.   The average man lives at Ottawa,   excepting    for    extra    refreshments, which do not add to  their abilities lo serve the State, for about *|:40 a  month, or say .$20C for a session of four  months, leaving him, at former allowance, $600, and  his mileage,  say ^700.  This is more Ihan  the average  man at  Ottawa could make at home in the same  time, and certainly as much as his liune  at Ottawa is worth to the people.  W. S. DREWRY,  Sandon, B.C.  H. T.

Our legislators at Ottawa are bound  they will not suffer financial loss while  attending   the    sessions    there,    and  It is quite evident the mine owners of  the Slocan are living to some extent in  expectancy of revelations in the future.  That operations are down almost to a  minimum ia apparent from the low ebb  of commercial matters. Values of lead  and silver are low to be sure, but not so  low as they have been in the history of  the camp, while operations were posr  sible. This brings one to the conclusion  that expectancy���������anticipation of better  things���������is playing an important part in  the stillness of things at the present.  To be practical, the people have themselves largely to blame for this. Three  years ugo things were going on well in  the country, there was plenty of work,  plenty of men to do it at fair wages, and  au active commercial business. Speculators wero coming in with their purses,  making deposits here and there, circulating a round sum of money that  was freely passing from hand to hand.  The tinpot politician and the agitator  could not stand prosperity of this  description, they had to get in their  work, and the people allowed them  to  Some of the British Columbia prints  ;u-e sighing heavily because Ij.

In the  early eighties there were over a dozen of  these socalled "competing" roads, that  landed parts of Ontario in a two  cents on the dollar taxation, and today  there are but two railway companies  doing business in the country, and they  with pooled rates. Do the people of  British Columbia think it wise to put  their necks in the same traps ? ���������'. Every  company that wants to build -a road  should be given every facility to build  it, but the public domain and the public purse should be kept intact for the  benefit of the people.

It is quite evident now that a .penny  wise and pound foolish policy will never  do for the flume." It is also evident no  light bottomlessstructure'will eyerserve  a necessary purpose, as the .torrents  will wear the sand bottom and undermine the structure. A continued flume  built like the old one and re-bottomed  every three or four years might stand,  but that with other repairs would cost  the people upwards of $500 a,year, an  expenditure the people cannot stand. A  structure like the old one, bottomed  with plank edgeways sunk into the  ground, or heavy flatted timber, would  be much better from an economic point  of view. Piling the creek on either side  with piles driven six or eight feet'into  the ground, and the superstructure  built on them would be the best.

S������-  mnsmoBrwmnPsm HIS MAJESirS UIFOM,  WHY   SHOULD   THE OFFICER  DISCARD IT AS OFTEN AS HE CAN '?  , Continental Oinccris Always "Wear Tnelr  Uniform in Public ���������Orico a Soldier  Always a Soldier Is tho Rule in  Europe.  One of the first of Earl Roberts'  acts as Commander-in-Chief was the  Issue of an, order that all officers  visiting Pall Mall as officers should  be attired in the uniform of their  rank. That order strikes the right  note. Some day, perhaps", H13 Majesty may, through .the Commander-  in-Chief, inform his officers of the  (Sister services' that it is His Royal  (will and pleasure that they shall  ceas.e to disguise themselves as civilians' when off duty.  But Is an officer ever really "off  duty"? In the other armies' of the  civilized world they do not think so.  CChc uniforn of the Kaiser and the  Tgar, of the French Republic and' the  Emperor of Austria, is not slighted  ���������in this way. In all European services it is a military offence for an  officer to appear in public, save by  special permission and when unofficial^ visiting foreign countries,  (without his uniform, and even if this  (were not the case, no European officer dare brave the ridicule and; contempt with which his comrades would  visit  such  an insult to his country.  They arc never off duty. They are  Soldiers from the moment they enter  the army till the hour in which they  leave it. To them their uniform ig  a great deal more than a mere suit  of more or less gorgeous clothes.' It  ig the outward and visible sign) of the  fact that they have devoted their  lives and energies to the service of  their country, and the wearing of it  is to them not only a duty, ,  .      ..-���������'.��������� BUT AN HONOR.    '���������   .    " .  Why dees not the British officer  think the (ja.mc of the King's uniform?  Why is it to him merely a livery of  ecrvice. to be woirn, as a footman  .wears his livery, only when he is directly serving his master Fu?rther,  one might ask, without impertinence,  why the private soldier and the noncommissioned officer is compelled to  wear His Majesty's uniform both on  and off duty, while thosto who hold  "his; commission are permitted to get  rid of it, aa though itj were something  irksome and disagreeable, at the  earliest passible moment���������just as the  footman does with his livery?  It cannot, of course, be that the  British officer holds His Majesty's  uniform in anything but, honor,  though his European brother-in-arms  sometimes thinks differently, It  ' would rather seem to bs partly the  result of a. pernicious tradition, and  partly on that amateurism which so  deplorably interferes with the efficiency of our Army in the field.  The fact is, that the average British  officer does not take his profession  Seriously save when on duty, and  therefore the moment his professional duties are over he makes haste to  ireturn to civilian life. He has, apparently, a rooted objection to being recognized by the Man in the  Street as a bearer of His Majesty's:  commission, and he likes to get into mufti bo that the men of his own  regiment may pass him by in the  Street without ualuting.  ."WirJh us it is <not the officer who  is saluted, it is the uniform. On the  Continent it is. both, for the; man and  his uniform are ono. Once a soldier  always a soldier, is the rule from! end  to end of Europe. Why should, it not  be ao in this country?  It would be a welcome sign that  tlhe British officer had ceased to look  upon the Army as" a gentlemanly occupation, and had come to regard it  OS  A SERIOUS OCCUPATION.  He would live physically in his uniform, just as, mentally, he ought to  live in his exalted calling. This  may not eeera to amount to much,  but remember (hat naval and military officers are human, and thaty the  force of visible association is a very  potent force with all of us.

Reduce the matter to  its. lowest possible terms, leave the  honour of a glorious profession entirely out of the question for the  time being, and we find that1 both are  paid servants of His Majesty. Why  should the one be compelled to wear  the garb of his' service during; his ev-  cry-day "life,, while the other is ' allowed to wear it as seldom1'and for  as short  a time as possible?  The reverse ought surely to be the  case. The higher the rank in lhe  King's Service, the greater the honor and the more imperative the duty  of wearing the King's uniform.  , It" must be admitted that the Man  in the Street has tho right to be  able to recognise and to admire the  men who have devoted themselves to  the noblest of all secular callings,  the defence of their native land. We.  cannot all be soldiers or sailors, but  all of us who are worthy citizens! of  the Empire which these men have  won and kept for us. love them, and  and therefore we like to know them.  To the vast majority of us, our  heroes, the men who, in our' own generation, have willingly risked life and  limb, starvation and disease, to uq-,'  hold our splendid traditions and to  preserve our magnificent heritage  are only names that w,e read in the  newspapers. , We sec portraits ofthe  most famous of them in shop-windows'  and in the illustrated journals. Why  should we have to pass the., others by  in the street with no more chance of  recognising them than if they were  well-dressed City clerks, or ' mere  loungers about town?   :  ;!'.��������� BUT HE KEPT THE GOLD.- "'"'  Two young men drew up in; a four-  wheeler opposite a famous exhibition  in London. One, having alighted,  timidly approached the cabman, and  tendered him one shilling and six pennies as his fare, whilst the* other collected their (sticks and parcels, preparatory to following his companion.  Cabby, descrying a half-sovereign  amongst the coppers, whipped up his  horses, and drove frantically up Baker Street. Hearing cries from the  man, who ran after the cab, he had  an attack of deafness, until, hearing  Oxford Street, he was stopped by a  policeman. The man, much out of  breath, soon came up with the cab,  and cabby mentally bade good-bye to  the half-sovereign.  I ain't got nothin" of his! cried the  driver, , turning appealingly to the  policeman.  Ye hev! gasped the man. Ye ran  away wi' me foytherl   .  Sure enough, there was the old gentleman still in the cab, and staring,  pale with fright, at the crowd and  policeman.  DENTISTS  MUST BE CAREFUL.  A man in my profession, remarked  the dentist, must be careful in selecting  his assistants.  I shouldn't think they had much to  do with it, said the listener.  Well, they have, continued the dentist. I remember I had one once who  bud been working in a photographer's  gallery, and the first patient he had  to handle was the most nervous old  chap in the town. I never thought  about what be was going to do, and  simply told him to arrange the patient in the chair. He did it, and  then he said, as he stepped away,  "Now look pleasant." And the old  fellow, rushed out, and never came  back.  1  "SUBJECTS"   WHO  MAKE   GREAT  BRITAIN HATED ABROAD.    .  '���������   1' * ( > mi mil ,1 !

There is' nothing like pretending to  be a Briton ii you are in for a big  undertaking, for [you have the fear  of the Empire at your back. The  most successful of recent sham John  Bulls' was Ruy Lopez, ihe famous  South' American filibuster, who found  it more convenient to be called John  Philips.  He was a restless adventurer of Ecuador, and he -wanted'to become President of the State. He had already  made two attempts with a few.hundred men at, his. back, to oust the  reigning President, but had failed  hopelessly. 'And, finding the party in  power was not ai;   ,  , . ; ������  1  ; 1 ALL IAFRAID OF HIM \ '��������� <  he disappeared as Ruy Lopez, to bob  up again as John .Philips, Britisher.  He disguised himself as well aa he  could by shaving his head and moustache, and he looked that part better  than most .South Americans because  he had black hair. He got himself up  in strict British kit���������riding-breeches  'and white helmet, and even wore an  eye-glass. His rivals did not recognise him. He could talk English fluently, and ho gathered together  about 1,5C0 men and a couple of machine-guns. He went so far as to call  all his officers and most of his men  by English names', and they were instructed, to speak only in broken Spanish and "English when dealing with  the country people.  All South Americans', as Lopez knew  have a great sense of the superiority,  of the British, and his ruse succeeded,  for it really was1 thought by his enemies that he was an Englishman,  backed up by Britain, with British  followers, and, of course, plenty of  money, in which we are all supposed  to be roflLng. ^  The sham Philips, utterly routed the  rival forces in three short battles,  and carried everything before him. lie  made himself President Philips of  Ecuador, and ruled for over six  months before he was found out. Ten  weeks after  the discovery."..'  : HE WAS ASSASSINATED, i '  Japan was badly "had" some time  ago by a counterfeit John Bull, who  really came from Sweden. He was a  big trader in the East, and came to  Japan to open up a big business.  Now, the. (British Ambassador of that  time happened to be engaged on important matters elsewhere, and when  the Swede, whose name was Bjork-  man, found this out, he decided to  palm "himself off as,' an influential  Briton, and get a bi,g "deal" out of  the Government.   ��������� .  'He was as (yet unknown in Japan,  and he turned up at State headquarters ; with alleged letters from all  sorts of powerful British authorities.  He wanted .Japan to give him some  big trading concessions and monopolies, the holding of which meant the  acquisition of millions, of money.  He was as jyet unknown hr Japan,  The name he took was Walter Adams, and he Said, among other.things,  that he was a nephew of the Prime  Minister of Britain, and the heir to  the "Earldom of Mistley," which is  unknown  in the British peerage.  The Japanese have a great reverence for iEuropean nobility, and Bjork-  iman, who was a clever man, and a  master of (English, pushed his point  so well that he obtained the agreements he wanted within twenty-four  hours. When the British Minister returned, he naturally denied all knowledge of the man. But Japan could  not well retract, and the Minister,  on looking into the matter, decided  that it would make a bad impression  on the Japanese  to 1 ,   .  DENY THE AUTHORITY i'���������/.'.  of the man, and decided that there  was no way out of it, but to quietly  wink at the bham. Bjorkman's impersonation was one of the most fruitful pieces of humbug ever brought  off in the name of Britain,,   for he  in Japan,  and amassed over ������2,000,-  000.    ��������� ���������  Americans have oftc:? found it pay  to become temporary Britons when  trying for a big thing���������especially in  Asia���������and the .most daring of them  all was certainly the notorious Lincoln Forbes, who " rushed" the  Ameer of -Afghanistan, and risked his  life in doing it. His reason for becoming a sham Briton was simply ,  DARING FRAUD ; ���������'��������� '  and he was very nearly successful.-  He picked his time for visiting the  Ameer's Court at Kabul, just at the  moment when nobody was present  who could "show him up," and presented himself as Joseph Arkwright,  in the nervice of the British Government. The"Ameer owed the Government a sum of neaTly ������70,000, which  was about to be paid, and it was this  that Forbes was after.'  Clad in Anglo-Indian riding-kit, he  managed to get into the presence of  the Ameer with a set of forged papers, and he actually succeeded in  convincing the grim monarch ol bis  .genuineness. He had some camels and  an armed escort to take the money,  away. It was paid in gold, and the  sum was ihanded over to him. , He  would have been impaled alive had  the truth been guessed. He got over'  the borders, however, and tried the  desperate plan of escaping through  Kafiristan, a deadly country; but tho  alarm was raised, and he was captured by a British patrol. He is still doing time in the Andaman penal settlement.  One of the, biggest and most wholesale pillaging expeditions on record  was' made by a sham John Bull, who  called, himself Colonel Stoddart, but  was really a plausible Turk by the  name of Belim Hassan. He organised  a force of about twenty men, all rigged  out  in  English ;  CAMPAIGNING CLOTHES, : "  and all armed- With these, and himself  as their "colonel," he descended .on  Armenia, where he represented himself to the peasantry as an English  emissary, who was sent by the British  Government to levy taxes, and collect  whatever valuables the Armenians!;  had, which would bo stored and protected.  In return for this", Britain would  take the Armenians under her especial care, and protect them from the  'terrible raids by the Turks and  Kurds. 'Armenia at the. time was terror-stricken by Turkish massacres, .  and had some hope of help from England. Colonel . Stoddart had seldom need for violence anywhere,  for the people yielded up all they had ,  to him in most instances ; and he was;  said to be the best imitation of a Bri-.-,.  ton ever turned out. He and his men  fared sumptuously, and altogether he  cleared about ������69,000, mostly from the  country traders- What he was not  given he took. Then he disappeared,  and Turkey took no .great trouble to  find him.. He is peaceably settled now,  in a jgorgeous house of his own in  the  Turkish ^provinces.'.

' Sausage Rolls���������These rolls may be  eaten hot or cold. Have the fried  (sausage in links, hot. Keep them so  .while you mix up the following biscuit rule: One quart flour, with 2  large tablespoons baking powder sifted, through.e 1 teaspoon salt, and  rich, creamy milk enough to make a  dough that ' will, not stick. There  must be at least 1-2 cup! sweet cream  in the mixture. Roll out very thin  on the board. Take a large cooky  cutter, or a largo canister lid, and  cut. out. Roll or wrap up one hot  Sausage in each disk of dough. Pinch  the ends together and lay side by side  in a shallow baking pan, and bake in  a hot oven. Serve on a hot dish,  pouring the gravy, if desired, over  tihem when Rant to tbe table.   ,  An Italian Disth���������Fry 1 onion in  hot fat, add a green pepper and about  1 qt. tomatoes sliced. Prepare an  eggplant by cutting in thin slices^ and  putting the two ingredients together  with a dressing of bread crumbs and  eggs, seasoned-with Bait and herbs.  .When the tomato is boiling, add the  eggplant and cook gently until soft.  Eggless Squash Pie���������In this time of  scarcity of fresh eggs, it is1 well to  know that pies made from squash are  better, if anything, without them,  for the reason that they can be well  baked and not whey, as they are apt  to do wihen eggs are used. Instead of  an egg to a pio use a cracker rolled  fine and stirred into the clear squash  a little while before using. Next,  add a little cinnamon, some salt, 3-4  cup sugar and 3-4 pt milk to 1 large  cup of squash. It should be thicker  than  when  an egg is used.   '  .'Ham and Egg Pancake���������To make  chough pancake ������or three or four persons, take 6 eggs and beat well, add  2 cups Btweet milk, and 2 heaping  tablespoons flour gradually stirred  into itv also a pinch of salt. Cut  some nice fat ham into very thin  (slices, fry separately and divide into  small pieces about three inches  Square. Butter the frying pan well  and spread a very thin coating of  batter in pan, then put in three or  four pieces of the ham andi cover with  another very thin coating of batter,  and brown very nicely on both ,>ides.  Should be eaten while warm.   .

When  boiling, thicken with corn meal, as  for fried haaty pudding, and season,  with Salt, pepper and eggs, about as  for sausage. When thoroughly cooked; turn into a pan and when cold cut  in Slices and brawn in a frying pan.  If the c meat is very fat, remove  some before thickening.  Baked Quince Sauce���������An excellent  way of preserving quinces is to pare  and slice them. Then sprinkle, first  a layer osf quince, in a large earthen  dish, then one of sugar, and so on  until the dish is full. Then turn  over the whole hot water enough to  keep it.from burning and to make a  sauce. Cover tight with a plate or  flat tin and let it bake and simmer  in the oven several hours until the  quince is cooked soft. Then seal  tightly in fruit cans while hot.   '  Spider Cake���������This is an old-fashioned way of making bread, and if you  never have tried it, you will be pleased with ita simplicity. Mix the dough  as you would for cream tartar biscuits: A pint of flour, 2 medium  teaspoons baking powder, 1-2 teaspoon  salt, 1 teaspoon sugar, and 2 teaspoons shortening. Instead of baking powder our grandmothers! used  aoda and cream tartar. Heat a  spider or griddle, grease it and pour  in the mixture. When a crust  forms turn it and continue to do so  until the bread is browned upon; both  sides and thoroughly cooked. This  can be made upon the top of the Htove  very quickly, asjd ia a nice way to  have hot bread in sumjm&r without  the trouble of' heating the oven.  Break, instead of cutting it. You; will  find this equal, if not superior, to  biscuits baked in the oven, and with  half the trouble.  Cold Water Gingerbread.���������This receipt is. one of a senator's wife's. The  first time eating any, I thought it  the most delicious gingerbread made,  and still think so. She served, it hot  for dinner. It is' quickly put together and baked. Use 1 cup molasses, 2 tablespoons lard, sausage  fat is best, 1 teaspobnful soda, ginger and cinnamon. Stir these  smoothly together. Add 1 cup cold  water, 3 cups flour and bake in a  long pan or two Washington pie  plates.  -    ���������   '     HANDY HINTS.  Anyone who hag had to take something out of the oven in1 a hurry, and  found no holder handy, will appreciate  these few suggestions:    .  Holders aro always in demand. One  can hardly have too many of these  useful little friends. Why not utilize the leisure of a rainy day by  "taking Time by the forelock," and  getting a number of them ready and  in their places?  Make gome of several thicknesses of  common white cloth and cover with  any pretty wash goods. , Five inches  square is a good size.  Sew. a piece of taps to each; one, and  when you gee out a iresh kitchen  apron fasten one of these to the band,  at the right side, by means' of a small  Safety pin. The cook will find these  a  great convenience.   , They  can  be  washed when soiled.  For ironing, holders' made of bed  ticking are good, a;s. that is so thick  it, keeps the heat from the hand.  Some prefer a circular holder for ironing. It is well to have several of  both kinds on hand.  A. holder covered with bright worsted material, and with a loop of braid  or ribbon to hang, it. up by, should  be near every fireplace or stove.  For ironing (sleeves, a sleeve board,  such as may be bought at,' almost any  department store for' twenty-five or  thirty-five cents, saves much vexation  of spirit, and prevents the crease  which is always visible when the  sleeve is merely folded and ironed.  It is a good idea to havet two pasteboard boxes, shoe boxes are a very  good isize, for strings. Save all the  strings that come into the house.  Put the common string in one box, the  pretty colored string in the other.  Then, when you wish to do/ up a present or wish your package to be dainty, you will not have to hunt for the  color you wish. This is especially a  convenience  at, the holiday season.  Two good-sized bags, made of calico, aift nice for paper. In one keep  all the" oc.rr.mon wrapping paper, in  the other put the tissue paper, and  any pretty wrapping paper that  comes to you. This will be a treasure-mine when you are doing up  Christmas gifts. The tissue paper  should be ironed and iolded before  putting it into the bag. ';., ;..,..'  ' j "','     A PAPER WEDDING. "-���������������������������   '  The paper .wedding, the first anniversary of a wedding day, is occasionally observed among a group of  young folks', who turn it into a merry-r  making. They come adorned with  grotesque paper caps extracted from  motto crackers! and sometimes in en  tire costumes evolved from gorgeous  crepe paper. The paper wedding offers an excellent chance for a masquerade party, when paper of all  sorts may be utilized, from pert pretty Yum-Yum with a Japanese parasol to a frolicsome youth representing the yellow kid in an impromptu  suit made from yellow journals. There  is. the greatest latitude when itcomes  -to_ gifts. The offering may be ��������� a  dainty box of stationery ora book' in  tha most artistic of bindings.  For table decorations paper can be  used lavishly, with paper table napkins,' nnd even one of those beautiful table cloths in paper which can  be found iu Japanese stores. Globes  for-gas and electricity, or lamps, can  revel for that one night inf wonderful  paper shades, and where an artistic  taste would demand flowers and  wreathings of smilax or the delicate  asparagus vines, it yields to the  harmony of things and substitutes  paper blossoms as true to nature1 as  they can be found, with Japanese, lanterns and lengths of paper ribbon for  draping.  If the decorator has taste, a house  can be mado really charming with  paper decorations, if they are kept  in delicate colors which harmonize. At  the paper wedding, as in all other  celebrations, the bride ought to wear  her wedding gown, and after lhe passing of only twelve months, it is possible for her to be surrounded- by her  bridesmaids in their year-old frocks.  ������������-  Tooth Powder 25c  DINING WITH THE KAISER.  The Servants Do Well Out of a Court  Sinner.  A Court dinner in Germany is a  most elaborate affair. A high servant has admitted that nothing save  the linen, plate, china, and glass la  ever served twice at Court tables.  Thus, bottles of wine that have been  sent up and not uncorked, huge  pieces: of meat, game, poultry, and  sweets in profusion are of necessity  left over. These become the perquisites of the servants, who, as, can  be well imagined, do very well out  of ; a Court dinner.  The Kaiser has made it a newt fashion in Germany for host and hostess  to sit side by side half-way; down the  table, and not at" each end as .here.  The guests are supposed to arrive at  least twenty minutes before the dinner is served. The actual banquet  does not last long.  A man in Berlin,- who had been dis>  missed from the Royal service, boasted that he made a very comfortable  income every year by selling the leavings from the Kaiser's feasts. He  asserted that many of the restaurants in Berlin subsidized him to secure bottles, of Imperial wine andi delicacies from the table, a source of  income that, if true, can be well imagined as, being peculiarly lucrative.

Dresden,' May 13, (Special.)���������Allan  Mcintosh, proprietor of the well  known Clifford House here, in conversation at his house to-day, made a'  statement 'that cannot fail to car-*  ry with it the weight and influence  of the speaker.  "Gentlemen," said he, "Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me of Bright's Disease after eight years of torture."   <  To say that his hearers 'were surprised, but *faintly expresses it. Air.  Mcintosh looks so far from an invalid at the "present time, that the news  of his former affliction with a dreadful malady, like Bright's Disease,  sounds unreal and improbable.  The subject arose from a conversation in which one of the .gentlemen  present complained of backache. Mr.  Mcintosh at once advised Dodd's Kidney Pills.  ���������  Following some further discussion'  on the merits of Dodd's Kidney Pills  came  the statement above quoted. ���������  "I had Bright's Disease for over  eight years," repeated Mr. Mcintosh.  "1 could get absolutely nothing to  help me. Bright's Disease was incurable I found. My back was a  continual ache. My urine was of  that dark color which is the most alarming .symptom of the disease. :  "Gentlemen, I tell you, ,1 was in a  bad way. Bright's Disease means  death if you don't cure it, and I  could get nothing to cure ir. In fact,  I wa������$' told it was incurable! and, believed it. But it isn't.

'summoned to testify in  a ca.ge of assault, m which one man  had hit another with a shovel. A  host,of witnesses; had been called,  Who "beat about the^bush" in the  most tedious and provoking manner.  This annoyed the lawyer for tha  prosecution who broke outas follows:  Here, boy, we've been going round  this case for hours, and yet have no  evidence to convict tho prisoner.  Now, sir, he savagely continued, do  you ,hear me? I want you lo������come to  the direct point. .. Did you"fc*a tho  blow- struck?  Yes, six*.  Ah, ha, chuckled the lawyer, rubbing his; ii.inds, we have something  to work upon. Here, my good lad  take this cane, handing him his walking-stick.

I'm the complainant and you aro;  the prisoner.       Now,   just raise tha,.  Stick, and show the Court.  The bewildered lad did "raise tha  stick," and the next moment it came  down upon the bald pale of the astonished lawyer, and sent him staggering to his seat  That's, the way it was done, sir, Said  the boy, amid the shrieks o������ laughter,  of the wholo courtroom.

Retallack was in town on  Monday and went up the Washington  mine in McGuigan basin. ���������  - Sidney Norman  arrived  in the city  this week after attending a meeting of  the St. Keverne Co. in Montreal.  H. li. Wagner, of New York, the  representative of the American Smelting  Co. trust was iu Sandon this week.  He says he is here on privete business.  The Slocan mines have up to the  present shipped this year some 9,800  tons of ore, representing a value of  about $850,000, or some $100,000 less  than the output would have been worth  but for the recent slump of silver-lead.  The Payne let out tlie last of its 4.0  men on Monday. This is, however, not  it permanent suspension, merely a temporary uiie because of excessive surface  water in the workings. The company  are going on at once with the proposed  compressor, and the concentrator may  be working by early fall. The change  of management referred to in a Montreal  despatch most probably means tho  change in directorate which has been  made.   The Flume Breaks Out.
