 VOL. 3.      NO. 8.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 29, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  Summary of the Operations of Yar  ions Slocan Properties.  The first general (or statutory) meeting of the London & British Columbia  Goldfields, Limited, was held at Cannon Street hotel Saturday, July 22,  Oliver Wethered (chairman of the  company) presiding.  As they were no doubt aware, their  managing director,   Mr. Popkiss, left  last month  for British Columbia, and  he arrived there last Saturday.   They,  of course, had not had time to receive  the written reports,  but  they had had  two cables from Mr. Popkiss, who gave  them some information, not from his  observation, for he had not yet visited  the mines, but from  conversation  he  had with  Mr. Fowler, tbeir engineer,  and from   Mr. Robertson,   their manager.    Before   he dealt   with this information, however, he wished to r������>fer  to the strike now in progress in British  Columbia.   The eight-hour law, so far  as he could gather from local papers,  and from   conversation   with   British  Columbia men, was not a protection  sought for by tho   miners, but  was a  piece of grandmotherly legislation  resisted  by the employers and  tlie employed alike.   Since the first of June  no mining."li'id been going on on their  properties.   Mr. Popkiss, however, had  given it as his opinion that before long  the   strike   would   collapse,   and   the  mine owners wouid   not have  to pay  more than ������3 for an eight-hour day.   It  was unfortunate that  the strike   had  occurred, it had delayed them tosoaie  extent, yet he thought that all shareholders would agree   that they   were  bound to join with the other owners in  resisting.  Ho wonld deal first of all with the  Whitewater mine.   Those of the shareholders who  had received   the reports  of that inine would, no doubt be considerably   disappointed.      Something  like 3,000 tons of ore had been concentrated  a month, but the value of   the  silver   from    concentrates ��������� had   been  Bomewbat below estimates.   The principal reason was that the concentrator  plant was not so perfect as it might be.  In saying this, he did not pass any censure on tlieir engineers, for  everybody  knew that ore values could only be exactly determined by experiment.   Although they had poor reports of Whitewater that did not mean ultimate loss,  because he believed they had stored  the   "tailings,"   and   they   would   be  treated later on.   Meantime, the plant  was  being attended to, and they were  informed  by cable that better results  might   be   expected .. in   the   future.  Speaking for himseif, he had not lost  confidence iu the Whitewater mine for  & moment.  Coming to the Ruth mine, it had recently been visited by Mr. Fowler, and  they were now expecting his report.  They   were   erecting   a   concentrator  plant there, and it would commence  operations about the middle v.r end of  August.   He now came to a property  about   which they   had heard  something���������the Enterprise,   of which they  held 43 per cent, ol the stock.'   Both  Mr. Fowler and  Mr. Kendall  believed  that   the company   had made   an extremely fortunate purchase,  and their  interest ought to represent a very large  profit indeed.   It was a fully developed  property, and 577 tons of ore shipped  had realized $3S,500; there   were 125  tons still to ship.   This mine in common with  the Ymir and   Whitewater  had been closed in consequence of the  strike.   Immediately   the strike   was  over they would develop  the property  and proceed  to the erection ot  a concentrator.     The strike  was   ail'ecting  them  in two  ways.     First   of all, it  stopped   the     development   of   tlieir  mines, and secondly,   it stopped   the  issue ot   the   company.     JEverything  was ready   lor the   launching   of the  company,   which    they     anticipated  would result in a large profit to tiicm,  as well as to those who were associated  with them; but in view of tho  strike  they deemed it wise not to make any  issue, and he thought in making this  decision they*h���������d  acted  with discretion.     Speaking  generally, . although  this strike   had delayed them it had  one good effect.   It'had made the owners   of properties   less   exorbitant   in  their demands.   In other words, they  were able to buy properties to greater  advantage than it things bad gone on  omoothly    and   there   had   been   no  strike.  THE QUEEN BESS PROPEIETORY.  The report of the directors of the  Queen Bess Proprietory Company, Ltd,  lor the period from 22nd September,  1897, to 31st March last, presented at  the meeting held in London on the  13th inst., states that a net profit' has  been earned of ������7,547, from which has  already been paid an interim dividend  of Gd. per share, absorbing ������2500, and  leaving an available balance of $7048.  This the directors recommend should  be appropriated ns  follows :���������In payment of a further dividend of 6d. per  share. ������2500 ;  in  writing off one-third  of the total amount spent on   development work   at  the   mine, ������2728;   in  payment   to   the  directors of    5 per  cent,   on the   dividends  paid (������500),  ������250 ; in payment to the late managing- director   under the terms   of his  agreement with the company of I per  cut on the dividends paid, ������50;   and  carry forward to next account ������1520���������  ������70-18. _ The' directors think  that the  result is satisfactory, especially when  the fact is   taken   into consideration  that until  the past winter no regular  shipments of ore wrc made as, acting  under the advice of the  engineer in  charge, the   energies of the management were till then largely directed to  the opening up   and development   of  tho mine.   At 31st March last a total  of over  3500 feet   of  tunnelling  had  been completed besides a large amount  of work done in putting in the necessary uprises and winzes to connect the  various levels.   Ore was being stoped  in each of the five levels, and to give  some   idea   of   the1 capacity   of   the  mine,     it   may   be   mentioned    that  the   ore     shipped in   the1' month of  March,    1S99,    was   763   tons.     The  output for   the period   under   review  averaged a gross value of ������1-1 per ton,  the  average C03t of   mining,  sorting,  hauling,  etc., was   ������3, 6s. and'S'd. per  ton, and the average cost   of freight,  treatment   and duty  was ������6   9s. 9d.,  making together ������9 16s. 3d., and leaving a profit per ton of ������4 lis.   Recent  returns from the mine show that considerable reductions have been  made  in the cost per ton of mining, and also  in the freight ancl -treatment charges.  Further economies   are also being effected in the general administration of  the   company's   affairs.     The     total  amount spent on development to 31st  March last amounts to ������8183, and, notwithstanding  the fact that this development has opened out large bodies of  ore ready   for   stoping,   the  directors  have thought it wise  to write off one-  third of tho   total   amount   expended  against the proceeds of the ore already  mined.   Two of the directors���������Messrs.  John Visger Miller and Charles Kings-  ley   'Melbourne���������have   resigned   their  peats on the board, and Messrs. Robert  Bruce Archibald and Charles Sinclair  Dnimmond  have been duly appointed  directors of the company to fill the vacancies   so created.   C.  K.  Milburne  has also resigned his position as managing director in British Columbia,and  Captain T. J. Duncan,  of Nelson,   has  been appointed   general   manager   in  British Columbia.    The shareholders  will be asked to confirm the allotment  to Mr. Charles Kingsley Melbourne of  1500 fully-paid shares as nominee of  the Dominion Mining,   Development  and Agency Company, Limited.  The  Government Members  Endorse  Premier Semlin's Action.  Vancouver,  July 27.���������A   special  to  the Province bearing upon  the recent  government caucus says :    It has bet-n  learned that.the government members  at   the   caucus   endorsed   the   action  taken by   Premier   Semlin   in  asking  Joseph Martin to resign.   Mr.  Martin,  it is understood,   some   time   ago  announced that he would resign   should  those   present   at   the caucus   decide  against~him,   but   up  to  the   present  writing, no resignation   has,been  received   from   tho   deposed " "attorney-  general.   There is nothing in the talk  of a   coalition  government   whatever,  nor is there any further change  to  be.  inade,   save   in   the   portfolio   of the  attorney-general. At present tho likely-  successor is being   discussed,  and  the  opinion which gains the biggest following is thnt the position will be filled by  a man not at present in the legislature.  W. W. B. Mclnnes, Bon of the lieutenant-governor, and   a   member   in   the  commons   at Nanaimo,   is  spoken  oi.  The meetiug   which  lasted Irom   8.30  to 12 30, was a quiet  one. There  were  no altercations or   neated  arguments,  but there was, it is said,  considerable  plain talk.  shirking of promises that lead others  into error. More particularly do they  feel this after, giving their time and  services to vaiiuus institutions of the  place with "promises" for rewards.  The baud boys feel grateful to the few  who turned out, notwithstanding the  opposition of the eleventh hour���������some  from unforeseen sources���������belciving, no  doubt, that they could stand by an  error on principle. Of the trip they  say nothing, believing that those who  attended were repaid for their day  given to the band.���������S. B. B.  at 60} in New York,  at Slocan City," assajs  FATAL ACCIDENT.  Elhs  C.   Williams    Killed    and    Harry  Crouse Seriously Wounded.  The Situation.  The Galena Farm Group Sold.  As far as our news gatherer can find  out, the mining situation is the same  here yet as when the mines shut down  on the first of May. From appearances���������the building of bunk houses  and surface work���������they all intend to  start, up some day, butwhot day it will  be no one appears to know. As wc  said last, week, it is hard;���������- possible  that muoh will be done belore the government becomes re-constructed and  its policy on the mining situation  made public.  There is a report current among the  miners to the effect that the owners  are importing 600 men from the East  to work the mines in a short timo: but  alter enquiry we are given to the belief  there is no truth in it. It will be generally conceded that the higher the  wages paid the better for all classes in  the country, barring, perhaps, the owners ; but the regret is that penal clauses  have been placed in the statute, without being at all generally asked lor,  that prevent owners and men from  agreeing on any duration of a day beyond eight hours.  The  first accident in the Slocan by  blasting attended with fatal results, oc-  cured at the Sovereign mine yesterday  alternoon.     The two   men,  both  old-  time miners and experienced machine  men, wero driving a tunnel in tho mine  under  contract, with an air compressor.   Just how  tue accident happened  no one knows, at present, as there was  no one near  at   the time   but themselves.    It   is supposed, however,  to  have been  by an over-loti'ded  and premature or hang blast.   Dr. Power  was  speedily summoned   and   was accompanied    by    several   citizens.      Until  Crouse is more careiully examined the  extent of his injuries can not  be told.  Mr. Fallows was,  at tho working  early  in the day,  and the deceased appeared  to bu delighted with tho headway they  wero making.  PERSONAL   MENTION.  Aid.

Mining and Capitalist Visitors.  >  !���������  Another deal in Slocan properties  which has been pending for some time  has been closed. The Galena Farm  group has been purchased by A. VV.  McCunc, of Salt Lake, and W. L. Hoge,  of Anaconda. The amount involved is  not known, but is understood to bo a  large sum. The following is what the  Salt Lake City Herald has to say about  the deal:  "A deal has just been consummated  by which a group of claims near Slocan lake,   Kootenay, district.   British  Columbia, known us the Galena Farm  group  passes into the hands of  A. W.  McCunc, of this city,  and  W. L. llogc  of Anaconda, Montana.   This property  is situated in  the Silverton  camp in  the lamous Slocan district.   The property has been in the control of an English company,   and   has   been rather  poorly managed of late.   The Englishmen have spent over $200,000 in dLvel-  oping the property.   The Galena Farm  is what would be considered a  very  high grade silver and lead proposition  in   this state.   The   mine has been a  producer for some time, and under the-  new management tno output will be  greatly increased.   When seen, about  the matter yesterday, Mr. McCune admitted having made tne purchase, but  declined   to state what price  was paid  for the property.   He states that a concentrator of at least 50 tons capacity-  would be put up immediately, and that  this would probably be enlarged iii the  near future. ,  W. H. Brouse, and H. S. Osier, prominent men ot Toronto, were in the city  some days, in a trip looking over the  mining importance of the country.  P. Plumer-Hili, of Port Hill, Idaho,  was in the city this week looking over  the mining interests of the district, as  well also C. A. Cox, of Peterboro, Out.  T. M. Ogelby and family, of Kansas,  are taking a stroll over the country  looking alter mining interests.   They  W. B. Turner, late in the newspaper  line at Kaslo, was in the city Thursday.  Dr. Hendrix is expected to arrive in  the city with his bride about the 1st  prox.  R. F. Green, M.P.P.. passed through  the city, Monday, on his way to attend  the government caucus in Victoria.  Mr. F. L. Christie, barrister of Sandon, B.C., arrived on this afternoon's  train on a visit to the city. He reports  that the Slocan rhinos are still inactive  but that the outlook is good for a  speedy resumption of work.���������Province.  '"Shady" Geigerich says it is a false  alarm.

They all p,*id a  visit to tho Star mine, and rumor has  it with an eye to purchasing.

The Noonday has 55 men at work  and will shortly ship a car of ore a  day.  It is reported that one of the Slocan  mines is importing Polock's to work  the property.  The Athabasca mine, at Nelson, is  putting on a full force of men at $3 for  eight hours.  A lot of supplies are going up daily  to the Ajax Fraction, which is payin"  $3.50 a clay. - ������  The St. Louis group, Lemon creek,  has been bonded by Chas. Brand, of  Silverton, for $30,000.  Adam Golsong and Tom Trcnery are  doing assessment work on some claims  of Air. Trenery, up the north fork.  The Wakefield is advertising for men '  at 93.00 a day, and the Silvertonian is  praying that it may not find them.  Sluicing on the Weymouth, opposite  the Enterprise, has uncovered a promising ledge with a six-inch paystreak.  The Ajax fraction is working away  quite actively iu underground workings and buildings for the accommodation of its miners.  R. Cooper, has just completed assessment on the Burlington Fraction, adjoining the Arlington. He has the  same ledge as the Speculator.    '  Four men are employed .on the Ma-  bou..ahove th- Kr^.-priac. A shhft is  being sunk on the recent strike, which  is also being traced on the Ohio.  The Necpawa, Ten Mile, h.is been inspected by several parties of late. Two  men are working on the strike made  during the spring, and they are taking  out rich ore.  The tramway from the No. 2 workings of the Enterprise to the wagon  road has been completed, and the ore  is being shipped out. One four-horse  team is employed, and it will be a  month yet before it is all handled.  The ground sluicing on the Mineral  Mountain, on the Ten Mile summit,  showed up very rich float, assays from  which gave upwards of 240 ounces of  silver. The vein is believed to be'  identical with that of the Speculator.  Neil O'Donnel, of Sandon, is hauling  ore Irom the Noonday mine to the Silverton wharl. He is delivering oyer  ten tons a day and expecls to increase  this amount next week. P.Siunotts of  Silverton, has the contract, but as he  had not enough stock to do this hauling and take care of his other large  freighting and packing business, Mr.  O'Donnelt is helping him out with his  four-horse team and big ore wagon.���������  Silvertonian.

The great nunaber of cases published  lately showing how Burdock Blood Bitters cures permanently, such serious  diseases as cancer, scrofula, salt  rheum, erysipelas, running sores, etc.,  has abundantly proved that when J3..B.  B. cures, you're cured to stay cured.  The Sandon brass brand (or its members) find themselves ������00 in  the hole  on their Argonta excursion,  but still  have tlieir heads   ubovo  water,   even  though they were deserted at the last  moment���������or   all   along   deceived���������by  tne   many who ^promised   to   attend.  They feel that, (perhaps, they made a  mistake   in running a Sunday excursion, but think the pieachers could employ their guns on tne supposed friends  ofthe band, who hot only "talked" the  excursion up but were loud in  their  lamentations when the proposed  excursion was for a time dropped.   "Sabbath desecration," under the head  of  Sunday excursions, is, no doubt, inexcusable in the east, or in places; affording some deviation from the monotony  of every day existence,   and  may   be  even  questionable in   any place   and  time, bi.it it does   not appear   to the  G.

Over on tho Arlington,   on Springer  creek, fourteen men aro employed in  three eight-hour shitts, under the fore-  manship of W. Ljttrick  and tho management of W. F. DuBois, late of the  Enterprise.   The  main shaft is   down  120 feet and has cut through the ledge,  exposing a magnificent showing of ore.  A station has been cut out and preparations made for drifting on the vein, as  well as in tiie level lurther up the hill.  New rails and a car have just been installed   and    everything   it,     movinjj  smoothly.   Active'devciopmont will be  pushed tor some months, then a  new  level will bo commenced further down  towards   the creek.     If   this demonstrates   the   continuance   of  the   ore  bodies   a   big   concentrator is   to   be  erected and   all the   vein matter   run  through the mill.   As it is now everything goes over tho dumps  awaiting  the installation of the mill.   The working of the   Arlington   is helping   out  that section wonderfully.

A handful of sick, starved sailors,  pow being slowly nursed back to  health at Victoria, B.C., have told  their rescuers tho story ofthe destruction of a bravo ship and. of more than  twoscore  lives.  There was small chance for any  boat that sailed into the path of iho  fcaiful hurricane that for weeks had  swept ravenously across the South Sen  and along the Queensland coast. Tho  waters had seethed and roared and  tossed, and many a good boat was hurled .under llieim. by a single blast of  the pitiless wind.  Two of the stoutest ships afloat wero  found. The next day Mitchell and  Simiwon, suffering severely from thiisl  and hunger as well as from the ��������� pain  of exposure.jmade their way along the  cliff for'several "miles in the hope of  finding either a human being or some  water. Failure added to their bodily  torture. They had not the strength lo  return to (heir companions, and spent  the night under some bushes.

McMillan came back to tell  the good news that a spring had been  found and to get a can to' fill with it.  Tlie others never heard from him again  nor found iho walor that ho had discovered. They believed that weakness  overcame him ami (hat lie fell from  the  cliff.  TlIJtEE WEEKS OK TORTURE.  For three weeks (he surviving men  led an existence of increasing torture.

British sailors declare thai the Loch Sloy's ruin  was due1 to her evil star. No good end,  they say, could' befall a ship lo whom  the ocean tales had shown themselves  plainly hostile since, lhe voyage when  6he first " found herself."

This wretched sustenance, however, was almost worse than none, and  Lhe men could barely have livod another day had they not been found and  cared for.  STORM'S GHASTLY TROPHIES.  To-day they aro patrolling the whole  lenglli of the Queensland coast for  dead bodies. Moro ihan one hundred  bodies have already been washed ashore  and decently buriod. Organized parlies  of settlers, wi(h native guidos, aro  searching tho land along the coast for  moro bodies of the wretched victims.  Most appalling of all, more than four  hundred widows and children are left  desliluto.  Jurues Clark, President of the Clark  Pearl Fishery Company, alone has  buried thirty-eight victims of the  storm, and this is the message he  sends :  '  Wreckage    and    death  mark     tho  i  sailed from Glasgow in command of j way all along tho seab-aid from Cape  C-tpt.

Ill-luck pursued tho ship from iho  start. Storms alternated with appalling seasons of fog and wero followed by leakages and a train ot mishaps. _ When Kangaroo Island was  eighled the ship's people, set up a  shout ot joy. Had tho island been sighted a few hours sooner the wreck could  have been avoided. The lack of a light-  hourje wapj Lhe chief cause of lhe dis-  aisler.  It was ia the middle of the male's  watch on the morning of May 5.  ''Land hoi" shouled the lookout.  The crow were sunning llieinselves  undei the ice rail, enjoying a cup of  coffee after the hard work of iho  storm. The ship was going like a racehorse. Breakers loomod up ahead  amidst the eddying seas.  " 'Bout ship!" shouled the captain,  and all hands jumped for the halyards.  The helm was thrown hard apori, but  H was too Ule. The ship bumped  heivily, ripped open, and bofore a boat  could bs cast loose she was among the  breakers aud swe-pl clean by the wicked  waters  every moment.  She had struck against a treacherous  reef.  WOMEN CLIMBED RIGGING.  The knowledge thai the ship was  doomed and that all lives were in danger spread over the ship with inys-  " terious swiftness. Passengers and crew  silent and white-faced, struggled to  save themselves by climbing the rigging.  The women, trembling with the horror of it all, climbed lo lhe mizzen-,  top. The mates, seven of the crew,  and iho three passengers followed  when they could. Others clambered lo  tho mainmast and foremast.  In throe minutes the. mainmast fell  with u crash over the weather side.  Thoso who had been clinging to ii. wore  plunged into Lhe sea. Wave after  wave ate away iho good .ship's strong!)  wave ate away (he good ship's .strength  till her supports crumbled and gave,  way. Tho foremast toppled and fell.  A: few minutes later-the mi/.zen went,  carrying all with it, and the last hope  of saving the ship vanished. Jfor ihe  drowning men and women there seemed only death ahead. The huge waves  were battering, the ship's .'fragments  against the reef, and land wa's a mile  '������������������ away.  "I seized a lifebelt," said William  J. Siimpsoh, an apprentice, and one  of the survivors, "and I remember  nothing else till I found myself floating on some wreckage, and the shore  not far away.

"We.   picked   up  a case   of   whiskey  and some canis of herring and got from  them  the strength  to  make  our  way  to a cave on the shore."  From this point the. story of the  survivors is pitiful enough. From the  cave they crawled to the. summit of a  ojiff, an Unspeakably barren place,  where  not  a drop of   water  could   b^i  two vessels lost by our company, these  minus sails, masts and gear, and lhe  men who had manned Lhoin.

Thi'y    refer,    especially,   lo   ono   Tom  Gardner, the  lion of Macnaquac, who  was born on the banks of the, St. John  in the   ycair 1798,   and who had   such  strength thai, it was a real  affliction  lo him  by reason of Lhe crowds who  followed him.    The mere rumor   that,  Tom was expected, on his raft, or lhal  hei was walking up Lhe road wilh his  ;;cull o.-ur and warp over his shoulder,  would line the fences or lhe river bank  with people who wished to see so great  a prodigy.  SOLID WA1LL3 OF BONE.  vUpon casual view, these pooplo say,  no one would suppose (hat Gardner  possessed more ruuscl������ than an ordinary man of ,his inches. He wasi a mild-  manncred, unassuming, flaxen-haired  young man, raLher slouching in his  gail, 5 feel 10 inches in height, and  usually weighing from 175 lo 180  pounds. When stripped, however, his  power* couid in part ho accounted for,  his chest being finely developed and  Lhe rauiscles of his arms, legs and  Hughs sianding out like the sinews of  a boar. It .was the papular belief that,  ins>uiddi ol ordinal.y rius, Gardner possessed solid walls of bone on either  sidi-i of his cheat.  ' Tom's, brother John, was in no way  noLod for his physical piowess.bul his  sistor, Matilda, was so strong that no  man was ever aole to kiss her in fair,  boniest piay. She declared that she  would marry tho firoi man who accomplished this feat. 1c is said thai one  of hd-i- suitotb, Isaac Fuller, was more"  crafty than lhe olbers. He studiously icfiamed from, seeking lo capture  Matilda's lip;, unlll he had won her  bear I. lie courted her al long range  and, pruned her beauty. Then Matilda  surrendered.   v  HOME OF HIS FEATS.  One of the fow surviving river men  of  that period,   is John Camber,  who  now    ;lives    al   Arthurene,    on    lhe  Tobique Itiver.   He was wed acquainted wilh Gardner, and saw him perform  many of  his amazing  feals.       "There  w^'ie no Ltwo men  iu my  lime,"    said  Mr.  Gunbor,    "who    could  lift    Tom  Gardner's    load  or  handle him  in    a  sor i ruin, ige.    In  tlie year 18z6,    which  was right,  atier   ihe  great Miramichi  fi.io, I s<i.w him ui      U ration, opposite  "Woodstock,   lift  a   molasses  punoheou  full of corn, said to be fourteen bushels, fiom ihe  bottom of a  towboal to  Lhei gunwaie, and then tei it down on  ihe beuch stones.      1 saw Gardner do  one   thing  which   1    am  satistiod    no  man in the province could now begin  Lo do.   This occurred at Grafton a-so.  He took holdi.of a rum   puncheon containing at.  the   time  seven  gallons of  rum,  lilted it  from the ground without  the  lotisL  effort' and  drank  from,  the    hunghoie.      The    puncheon    was  a   heavy,   iron-bound'ulfair,  and must  have wighed 120 pounds, not counting  the rum.    Ed.  Wheeler kept u bluck-  smith>hop in those days .al East Flor-~  onoeville. 1 hsiye- soon Gardner borrow'  a.   pair   of mills   from   Ed.    and    pull  ho::s.'shoe.s apart with his hands as fast  iis he could pick them up. 1 remember  his   coming   home   from a   dance one  morning, ail hands pretty'well slewed  and carrying   on,   and hauling up by  (he  roots   an  apple   tree,  four inches  thich and lugging it all the way home.  Tins 1 did mol actually see myself, but  three men who were with him, David  Gpjd, Solomon Good  anil George Lang,  told, me about it  and the tree was replanted on Lhe, shore and called Gardners  tree   for   forty   yeans   afterward  till  it wins carried away by a  big ice  freshet. -  HE KEPT A HOTEL.  At one time Gardner kept a kind  of hotel or wayside house, below the  mouth of Tobique., and two stout Irishmen, encli weighing over 200 pounds',  who were anxious to tackle him, raised  a rumpus in the kitchen. Tom picked  them up, one in each hand, knocked  their heads together, carried them Lo  the buck door, and threw; them over  Lhe bank of the~ river. One ofthe Irish  men was named William Hapenny; the  natrne of the. other I have forgotten.  Ths late Edward Campbell of Northampton, .was an eye witness of this lit-  j t!-s 'fracas. 1 was in St. John ono spring  who was expected) to arrive on-a raft  next day. Tom knew nothing about  wrestling, but easily downed the Englishman, throwing him collar and elbow, side hold and back hold. The  Englishman-offered' him ������<U)0t, a year  if he would go to England and wrestle  on the stage. Another famous wrestler  came all the way from Miramichi ��������� to  Tom's house Lo try a fall with him.  Tom was away down river, but his  sister, afterward Mrs. Fuller, told the  stranger she could throw him herself,  and did so throe Limos in succession.  Thv Miramichi man didn'L wait for  Tom. I have often seen Mrs. Fuller and  know Unit she had wonderful stmngth.  She could shoulder a barrel of flour,  and Tom used lo say thai on side hold  she could throw him unless he put out  his entire  strength."  One of Gardner's notablo feats was  performed on a wharf in St. John,  where ho lifted and carried for several steps an anchor weighing 1,330  pounds. The late Jacob Mclicen, of  Kingielear, was a witness of this  astonishing lift. A ' sailor named  John Hawkins afterward tried In lift  lhe anchor, but failed,and died from  Lhe effects of his efforts. Mr. Mc-  Keen used to say thai bo had known  Gardner, when lifting wilh a handspike, to break a stout spruce pole  five or six inches in diameter. Also,  that he had several times' soon him  currying- a barrel of pork, weighing  350 pounets, under; each arm, and once  saw him shoulder a bur roi of pork  while .standing in an ordinary brandy  box. On one occasion Tom was passing through lhe Meduclic FalJs on a  raft when he saw the ciew of tho J^el  River packet, composed of thieo men,  vainly endeavoring to pry the packet off a shoal. Tom 'snubbed liis  raft in lhe eddy, waded oul so that  he could pet his shoulder under the  bow of Ihe packet and lifted the vessel off lhe bar.  EFFECT   OF   SMOKELESS   POWDER.

LhaL in daylight it is no I moro terrifying than  black  powder,    although  some hold that to see men and horses  struck down  by an    invisibie    agency  must necessarily be .so.. ,J3ut it is generally agreed that Lhe use of smokeles.s  powder at night hiis a much more di:-  turbing   effect   -than that of    the old  powder,   because   the  flashes    of   tho  guns, unobscured by smoke, are a great  deal more vivid.   The fear thus inspir  ed can, however, be overcome by training, but there is   'another fear which  must, in the nature of the case, be feft  for  the  first time  on   the  battlefield'  and that  is  the  often   uncontrollabl  terror produced both in men and horse:;  by  the  whistling  of   bullets   and   lb  screaming and banging of shells..

Tho lasL  belard: of him by his relatives in New  Brunswick was that he had gone (o  Ihe far west, beyond Salt Lake Ciiy.  The following anecdolo of this Hercules- is taken from an old New York  paper:���������  "It is commonly reported and believed that Gardner met with a sad  adveuLure on board a Mississippi  steamer. A heavy bell was on board  as a portion of the freight, and the  explain, a great powerful fellow, was  concerned! as lo, how he would remove  it from its place in order to make more  room on deck. Whit-j ihe captain and  pisseugers wo;o at dinner, Tom, in  the* presence of (ho crew,' and Lo their  uiter amazement, lifted tho bell and  carried il to Lhe" opposile side of Lhe  bo\t. WIkji the captain relumed ho  asked how the bell had been moved,  aud when Gardner laughingly re-  ni-irked that ho had carried iL there,  the captain gave him Lhe lie,.and as  one word broughl on another, ho presently struck Tom in the facet This  wis too much, and for the first time  in his life the sttong man gave blow  for blow. One blow was sufficient.  Th? captain was knocked down as if  kicked by a horse, and never spoke  again. Tom made his escape, went,  -west, and has never been heard of  since."  Whon Mr. Camber was shown (his  paragraph he said that he had heard  about Tom lifting a big bell in the  Slates, but not as to lhe killing of  the captain. .Tie thoughl lhe latter  statement was untrue and had piob-  ably arisen from an adventure that  Tom had really experienced in Canada.  Aftieii" Gardner removed to Ontario a  noUxl pugilist there, who heard of his  fame as a stiong man, insisted on having a fight. Tom tried to avoid  tiouble in every way, but finally was  insulled and a fight look place in  which the fistic champion paid lhe  penalty of his rashness with death. He  was knocked senseless by a terrific  blow, and died a few hours afterward.  Tom Lhen fledj Lo Lhe west.

The name of the landlady with tho  Rpplo-red cheeks and array of white  chins was Airs. Mate, and this good  woman had received instructions Irom  Mr. Worksop, ������ the boatswain, from  the first day on which he, had arrived, Ito call him every morning whilst  he slept at hor house, at seven o'clock,  neither sooner nor later, and to havo  his breakfast of small-bcc:v-rashcrs of  ham, ch-eese, red herrings, and brown  brotid xeady for him in tho little front  ptirlour downstairs punctually by a  quarter to eight. Mrs. Male was always careful u> humor such sailors as  stayed at her houte wilh money in  their pockets. Mr. Worksop h,td now  used the Lonely Star for five days continuously, not to speak of his being  Hi regular customer whenever in thoso  partis; and in those live days he had  spent his money handsomely, begrudging himself noLhing, lippling with a  quarter-deck ralhor than u forecastle  taste, and (here was good prospect of  ,his remaining in the .house until the  "'   following Wednesday.  When next morning came, then, exactly at the. hour of teven, Mrs. Mate  wtnt up the somewhat darksome  staircase that led to Lhe chamber in  . which Mr. York and Mr. Worksop hud  elept, and knocked at the door. She  received no answer. She was not surprised, for Mr. Worksop was a stout  ulceper, apart from his trick of going  to bed with his skinful I. She kuock-  i fid again, and yot_again, accompanying bar blows by a 'vigorous kicking;  und failing to receive any sort of reply, she lilted tho latch of the door-  understanding, of course, as the landlady of the house, the trick of opening it���������and walked in. ' '  it w_as broad sunny daylight outside,  but the little window sol close under  the ceiling admitted but a pitiful  light. However, at one glance Mis.  Mato saw that' the bed was empty. She was prepared to find the boatswain alone, knowing, as we have seen,  Lhail Mr. YorkimeanL to start for his  sweetheart ut'daybreak ; but on glancing around she observed that, not ouly  w-as Mr. "Worksop gone but his clothes  likewise. 'This was unusual. She stepped Lo lhe bed, and more through  habit, perhaps, than wilh design, slie  pulled, down lhe> bedclothes, which lay  iomeiwhikili in a huddle on (the side the  boatswain had occupied, and instantly uittered a Joud squeal of fear and  horror.  .There was a great stain of blood up-  t>n the sheet, with smaller stains  round about it, thai seemed to be silling out even as she watched them liko  a newly dropped blob of ink upon  bloiting-puiper, Mrs. Mate squealed  oujl a second time even more loudly  than befoie, following Lhe outcry by  on hysterical shriek ol "Murder I murder I" motuawhile noting, with eyes enlarged to twice their circumference by  fright, that mere was a pool of blood  on lhe floor on the side .where tho.  bou.i&wain had lain, with other marks  which vanished at thj door.  So shrill-voiced a. woman as Mrs.  ���������Mate could not squeal twico al the top  of her pipea and yell "Murder 1 murder I" also without exciting alarm. The  first to rush upstairs was her liusband,  an old man in a white uighlcup, an  ��������� Btfed frill-shirt, and a pair of piurn-  coioured breeches. He was followed  by the drawer, (by a coupie of wenohes  who had been busy cleaning rooms  down-stairs, and by five or six sail--  ors, -who came running oul of the adja-  cenl bedrooms on hearing Mrs. Mate's  cries. Grasping her nuauand by tho  haiuk of his neck, the landlady, pointed to the bed, und exclaimed: "Mr.  Worksop has been murdered 1 murdered, Joe, 1 toil you 1 Blood in our house!  Murder done in the Lonely Star 1"���������  uttering which, she fell upon the  floor in a swoon, but contrived to rally  before.her ihusbond seemed able to  grasp the meaning of what she -had  . said.  One of the two wenches instantly  slipped a-way to give tho news. A  cold-blooded murder was no common  occurrence in Deal. A Customs' man  found deud with a slug through his  heart, the body of a smuggler washing ashore with a ghastly cullass-  wouud upon his lieoid, the corpse of a  gagged "blockadeir" at, the fooL of tho  Foreland Height, were mere business  details, necessary items of a programme that was full ot death, hard  weather, miraculous escapes, murderous conflicts; but a cool midnight assassination was a genuine novelty in  ita way, and in a very few minutes,  thanks to the serving-maid, the pavements outside the inn, ihe passage, tho  Blaircasc, the Lragic bedroom itself,  were ciowded wilh hustling men and  women, eagerly talking, the hinder  tmea bawling to those ahead for news,  and the whole rickety place threatening to topple down wilh the weight  of so  many  people..  The story soon gathered a: collected  form.   It was known that about nino  o'clock on the-previous evening a tall  young fellow with his hair curling up-  , on, his back had applied at the Lonely  Star for a bedroom, and.wasadmitjted  by  Mr.  Worksop  to  a  share  of    the  great bed in  which  that, worthy .lay.  IK got to be known, too, in a wonderfully short  space    of. time    that Mr.  Worksop' carried in his  breeches',   or  other pockets,   pome, thirty'or   forty  guineas   and   half-guineas,    loose,   a  handful  of  which  he    had    exhibited  with uncommon satisfaction on several, occasions -when,overtaken in liquor.  It  also got  to-be  known in an also  equally incredible short space of time,  thanks to one of the watermen who  had rowed Mr. York ashore from the  brig Jane, that  the  tall young, man  with! the long hair.had owned himself  worth only half a guinea"; of which he  ' bad given four shillings- to the boatmen after a tedious dispute, one to the  landlady for his bod, and a six-penny  bU for liquor, leaving him with five  shillings���������all the money he had in the  'world, according to hia   own ��������� admis-  siw! "and quite enough,"  exclaimed  ai deepi voico amidst the jostle of men  on the. staircase, "to account for this  here murder."  Presently, thero was a cry of "Boom  for Mr. Jawker I" Tho crowd made a  lane, and there entered a round, fat,  fussy little justice of the peace, with  the only constable that deal possessed  ���������a tall, gaunt, powerfully built  though knock-kneed man, in a rusty  three-cornered hive, and a long stick-  following close at his heels. Litllo  Mr. Jawker approached th- side of tho  bed, and utter taking a long look, full  ot knowingncss, at the blood-stains, ho  ordered tho constable, giving him tho  n.imc of Budd, to olear tho room of all  save those who could throw light upon  this matter: This being done, Mr.  Jawker fell to questioning the assembled folks, and bit by bil gathered as  much of the story as they could relate. (Tho landlady, Mrs. Mate, was  ignorant of the name of the tall young  man with the long hair ; but he told  her, she informed his Worship, that  he meant to leave her house before  daybreak that morning, to be in time  Lo breakfast with his sweetheart, who  lived Sandwich way, and who was none  other, as 6he supposed, than ptotty lit-  lle Jenny Bax, for 'twas Lhe widow  Bai^s pome he mentioned when ho  spoke of walking over to his love at  dawn.  At this point there was a disturbance outside. Budd, lhe constable,  looked out, and presently looked in  again to inform Mr. Jawker that fresh  prints of bloodstains had been discovered on the pavement, and could be  traced some distance.  "They must be followed 1 They  must bo followed I" cried little Mr.  Jawker, "they may lead ius to this discovery of the Body of tlie murdered  man.���������Follow me, Budd 1" with which  he went down-stairs, > Lhe gaunt immense constable close behind him, and  the people shouldering ono another in  pursuit of both.  There was a great crowd outside.  Deal was but a little place in those  days; indeed, it is but a littio place  now, anil lhe news of the murder���������if  Tha old village cart was drawn by  a lame horse, that waa occasionally to  be impelled into a brief staggering  trot by the one-oyed driver who 6at by  Constable Budd's side, and who on occasions acted as assistant or " watch "  to that worlhy. A crowd followed tho  cart ouL of Ileal, for Lhe excitement  was very great indeed; und many  would have ooen glad to havo accompanied the ojnstable the whole distance;  but ibis he would not suffor, sternly  ordering them to turn about whon  they had proceeded half a milo, " lost,"  as he bawled out, " tho criminal should  caleh scent of their   coming and fly."  It was a drive of five or six miles.  Constable Budd stolldjy puffed at his  pixie, with now and again a glance at  his heavy stick, and un occasional dive  into his coat-pocket, whore jingled a  massive pair of gyves or handcuffs, for  such ease of mind, maybo, as the chill  ot tho iron could impart to him.

" If you'd heerd what was said, you  wouldn't ask such a question," answered Budd. " I knew Mr. Worksop.  He wor a proper gentleman.

There is no end to the list of superstitions which focus about a wedding.  Many of these are so well known that  every bride is involuntarily impressed  with them on her wedding' day.  Every bride delights in a bright day  for hor nuptials, considering that  'lhappy is tho bride that tho sun shines  on," and the reason that Wednesday  is so popularly selected because in tho  rhyme of tho different days of the  week upon which to be married Wednesday is declared "best day of all."  May has always been regarded unfavorably as a bridal month, but June���������  "lhe month of love and roses"���������is outstripped only by the month in which  Easter falls. No bride who' is at all  superstitious would consent to try  her veil on before the day set for the  ceremony, as it quickly invites a widow's veil, nor would ono of tho wedj<  ding parly take oven so little a peep  at herself in it after the ceremony,  anxious, as sho may be to see how sho  will look on that future happy day.  when she shall be led to the altar, because,, a borrowed veil on such an occasion when one is a , guest at tho  wedding would portend a shroud bc1->  fore  the .year is out.  Brides are very particular to know  the exact size of the wedding ring  finger, so that the golden circlet, slipped on with the vows must never b6  removed. Sho is also quite.particular  to have "something' old, something  new, something borrowed and something blue," the latter almost invariably being a garter of blue silk, but  no up-to-date bride v/ill wear moro  than ono blue garter ���������t that for tho  left leg���������the other,    like    every  other  L'hey rumbled through the street s of j portion of   the .outfit,   mlust    be puro  Sandwich,  over  the quaint old struc-I white.

S., is one of the oldest residents of that  town.   He is a ship builder  by  trade,  but like many others Jiving along the  sea coast1 has also followed the occupation of a sailor. Owing to an injury  to his back some twenty-fivo years ago,  he has, until lately, led a life of mora  or  less buffering.  Mr.   Perry   tellB  of  his trouble as follows:���������" AbouL twenty-fivo years ago, I strained my back  severely,  aud tho result  was  that for  six months following this I could not  take a single atop without  the greatest agony.   I doctored for about a year  with a local doctor and whilo the pain  was eased to some extent, the trouble  spread from my back  to my hips and  legs and it was almost impossible for  me  to got around.    I  had  to  exorcise  the greatest care when walking, else I  would fall to the ground.   It was not  exactly paralysis, and yet it was something very nearly akin to it. For about  twenty-five  years I havo   suffered  in  this way, and although I doctored mora  or   less,     and   tried   many    remedies  I could not  get relief.     Ono    day I  reald In a newspaper the particulars of  ai cure in   a case    very like my own,  through  the  ma.ins  of Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills,  and I  determined  to  try  them.   I began their  use    about  two  years ago, feeling that what thoy had  done in the other case they would no  doubt do for me.   The trouble had fastened itself so firmly  that I  did not  hope for a speedy ouro, but as I found   .  tho pills were helping me I continued  their use until I had taken some thirty or more boxes, with the gratifying  result that Ihey did for me what long  years of other treatment failed' to do,  restored me to an excellent measure of  health, and I can now go about almost  as actively as in my young days.

So  many inquiring eyes were sure to discover whAvt was wanted. Stains unmistakably of blood could be followed  at vurying intervals from ��������� the pavement in front of Lhe Lonely Star;  then inlo lhe middle of Beach street;  then an ugly patch, as though the burden of the body had proved too heavy,  and the bearer had paused lo rest; afterwards, for a -hundred paces, no sign;  then half a score more of stains, that  conducted the explorers Lo lhe limber  extension tha-l projected a little distance into the sea, and there ot course  the trail ended. Nothing could be  more damnifying in what they suggested than these links of blood, starting from the bedside, and terminating, so lo speak, ai the vory wash of  iho water.

Half  risen from his chair was tho figure of  York, a table-knife in his hand, a frown j  halo of love and prevents all evii  gossip of you through lifo.  Modern brides select ono tiny little-  flower from the wreath or bouquet,  encase it in a locket or talisman of  soma sort and wear it continually.  Such a gift is quite a pretty, bestowal  from tho husband, with her now momo-  gram! engraved on tho outside.

Close to York was his sweetheart, Jenny Bax. an auburn-haired  little woman of eighteen, with soft dark  eyes and girlish figure and breast of  snow scarcely concealed by the kcrchiof  that covered her shoulders.  " It's  the Deal constable !" cried the  comely  old lady.  Of courso no one would wish to be  married on Friday, the 13th day of any  month; and Black Friday throughout  the whole civilized world records  scarcely a single wodding.  It is good to  give  alms jusL  before  Lho   wedding   day; in   certain nations  _ brides carry a few coins, or have their  i attendants do  it for   them  to  church  What    do  you    want?"  exclaimed j that   they    may toss    them   .to   some  York, slowly rearing himself to his full  stature.  "You!" thundered Budd. "Put that  knoife  down."  York did so wilh an expression of  amazement.

Then the raven slowly retreated, encouraging ' the mother to follow him,  and even pretending that he waa  afraid of her. In this fashion he led  her to a considerable distance from  tho young one, and then, suddenly, before the hare had time to realize tha  meaning of tho trick, he rose in th������  air, flew swiftly back, caught tha  young ha're in his beak and bore it  away.  A similar plan was adopted by somo  ravens/ that wished to steal food from  a dog. Thoy tensed him till he grew  so angry that he chased Ihem from th<  spot, but the artful birds turned  sharply round, easily reached the dish  before/ him, and carried off the choicer bius in'triumph.  As to the raven's power of speech,  th^ following story���������which is given on  the authority of Capt. Brown, who  vouches for its truth���������will show how  aptly it can talk. A gentleman, whilo  traveling through a wood in the south  of England, was startled by hearing  a shout of "Fair p'ay, gentlemen; fair  play I" uttered in loud Lones. The cry  being presently repealed, the traveler thought il must proceed from soma  one in distress, and at once began tc  search for him. He soon discoverer?  tW<-J ravens fiercely attacking a third.  He was so struck with the appeal of  the oppressed bird, that he promptly  rescued him.

An English savant has counted a hundred and thirty  seconds between a flash of lightning  and tho report. If this be true, thunder is audible a distance of twenty-  seven miles. If the ' thunder succeeding a flash of lightning cannot be  heard,.it is impossible to estimate the  distance awjiy-of'the flash.

ZtbefllMnfnGl-Rexrfew  SATURDAY JULY 29,  1S99;  1 GOOD ,MEDICINE.  ��������� "There are tricks in all trades," and  whnt is sometimes called "journalism"  1 appears to be no exception to the rule.  There is a paper published in Montreal  called "The Exchange News'.'ostensibly  in the intercstof mining, but.really in  the interests of brokers,' by, the way it  is patronized1 by them", with advertiso-  ��������� ment-s, that is a living'example'of this.  It sets out with saying there are many  inininy frauds in the 'west in which  eastern people become victimised,  which no one will deny ; but the paper  lays the whole blame at the doors of  unprincipnlcd - 0'- ignorant engineers  and mining experts. That there are  some engineers and experts who arc  not as clever or as principled us the  Angel Gabriel goes without saying ;  but as a class, they will be found in  both respects to average up with the  rest of humanity. That'lherc tiresome  engineers who may be bribed, which is  the light in which our confrere puis it,  maj bo true; and there are some  "experts" who may not bo as expert  and as knowing as they profess "to bo,  but these concessions do not come up  to the Exchange News' wholesale denunciations. '  But is the suggested remedy of our  confrere sure to be a never failing  cure ? It suggests that instead of dealing with "engineers and experts" financial men should deal with the brokers.  This is a sop for the advertising they  give it, and which, we should judge  from the general make up of the sheet,  is about the only return they get. But  let us analyze our confrere's never failing medicine���������the broker as tbo only  safe man. Now, supposing that, every  broker was as honest as the sun and  would not tell a lie if they knpw, which  is greater liberality than our confrere  extends to the engineers'ancl the .experts, how would that help out the iu-1  vestor and guarantee his never failing  "sure thing."

There is no secreting the fact that,  government in Canada, is not always  working tbo right war, nor will it until the people become bettor educated  and use their ballots to vote for measures instead of-'men and party policies.  There is urgent.need for radical - reforms in our legislative usages, and  if Lhe leaders and the parties will not  make them, it becomes the duty of the  people themselves to assume the aggressive. It is acknowledged on,-all  handB that the highest aim of government should be the diminution of the  disabilities and the, miseries of the  people.  Go to any of the older countries and  the cry is they are over populated because there are many who have not  the means of proper sustenance, because of insufficient industries, to,-employ, those'industriously inclined and  lack of menus in the bands of those  ���������given to agriculture, -to.follow their  calling. Large blocks of land there  are in every country unfilled, and  plenty.of people to till them if they  only had' the means to occupy and  carry on their congenial calling. The  waste of wealth on formalities the  usages of custom and what are alleged  to be the requirements of the progress  of the age are accountable for much of  this deplorable condition of things, and  the cry is for leaders .who will exert  themselves in the interest of the ne'ees-  ary reforms,   lio  to   Ottawa and  you  will see $50,000 a year literally thrown  if he saw it, though he be a saint on   away in support of the formalities pi  wheels?      ' Government House,   and hundreds of  The fact of the matter is that thougn   thousands more  wasted equally   fool-  there are thousands of safe mining in  vestments,   in  this   country at least'  some of, which are as safe as the Bank  of-England, no man, not even  an  inb  maculate Montreal Broker, knows the  , ultimate of any of theni; The engineer and the expert can tell what the  probabilities may be as work proceeds,  from-indications day after day ; but as  no two properties in any cpnntry ever  turned.out alike, even with similar indications or actual showings to a certain stage, it must be admitted that  even the infallible brokers must be  fallible- after all. There is no royal  road to absolute knowledge as to the  value of any property, and the people,  even editorial scribblers who pin their  faith on to Montreal brokers included,  may ns well know this first as last. Of  course, in a developed mine, an intending purchaser knowsho has something,  and the more the veins may be uncovered the better estimate he may be  able to make oi* the real merit ol* the  property, but that is all the assurance  he can get.  If the intending purchaser wants  less expensive properties���������undeveloped  mines���������his best plan is to select a lo-  ' Cttlity where mining in geneial has  been most successful, as in the Slocan  for instance, then take the opinions of  reliable engineers and experts as to the  probabilities of prospects on which  ledges have been found, and make his  investments accordingly. If he buys  any number some of them are almost  certain to turn out well, and amply  remunerate   him   for   all  his   invest-  menes.  For the benefit and  the safety of |  up much needed roads and trails. A  million and a half is promised to the  Pacific cable, that can benefit but the  few, while the expenditure of the  money on the masses would have given  a world of much needed employment,  and so on along the line���������style has to  be niantained, and industry to sustain  the wage-earner clipped.  Tho Nelson Tribune is like Rachel  of old���������it will not be comforted by the  utterances of the provincial press. Its  hist utterance is that The Review is an  inveterate enemy of tlie local government," and it endeavors to show that  wo oppose the eight-hour law���������a something it could not truthfully do if it  had the prescience of the angel Gabriel. The Review is neither friend  nor foe of any government separated  from its legislation, a somelhing the  readers of the Tribune would like to be  able to Bar of that paper. Up to the  hour that-Semlin asked for "fighting  Joe's'.' resignation, the Tribune could  not see the second color in Joseph's  coat; but now it sees dozens of them.  The Review, on tho other hand, told  Semlin, when he first named Martin as  a colleague, that. Martin would cither  rule or ruin him. The Review does  not oppose the eight-hour law, but it  opposes conditio..s in that law that deprive men of tho freedom of action,  which is their birthright under the  British Constitution.  It "appears to us that the wisest thing  the mine owners of this country could  do would be' to test the validity of the  penal clauses of the eight-hour law in  the courts, to ascertain, in 11 word, if  provincial legislatures have the power  to pass laws that prevent men from  malcinsr contracts to their mutual benefit, that interfere with no one else in  the country.  COMMUNICATION.  The athletic  'woman is the woman of the day.  The' past twenty  years liaS seen  wonderful progress in this respect. That this  tendency will'.'re-  s'ult in a more robust womanhood,  better able to bear  the burdens and  duties and pleasures of life, there  can be no question. But this  result will be accomplished by  the building-..up  of .those women  already in reasonably robust  health, and the  killing- off of their  weaker sisters.  Athletics will  make; a naturally strong woman stronger  and healthier; they will make a naturally  weak, sickly woman weaker and more  sickly, and 'if indulged in to excess, may  result fatally.  A woman who suffers from weakness and  disease of the delicate and:. important organs, .distinctly feminine, cannot hope to  recover her general health through athletics, so long as she remains locally weak.  A woman suffering in this way is unfitted  to hear .the strain of athletics just as much  as she is unfitted to bear the duties and  burdens of ���������> wifehood and motherhood.  There is a sure, safe, speedy and permanent cure for'all disorders of this descripr  tion. .It is Dr. Pierce's favorite Prescription.

Toronto,  To tho Editor of the Mining Review:  Dear Sir,���������A communication appeared in last week's Review, siened  by "A Sabbath Respecter," in which  the writer was considerably mixed in  regard to the Sabbath and Sunday. ]t  is apparent that as he objected to the  bund excursion on Sunday, although  calling it tlie Sabbath, be is under the  impressions that Sunday is the Sabbath. Tuis'Commandment is taught  as one of the foundation stones of the  Christian religion:  "Remember the Sabbath day to keep  it holy. Six days shalt thou labor and  do all thy'work; but the seventh day  is, the Sabbath of the Lord thy God; In  it thou shalt do no work, thou nor thy  son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant  nor thy maid servant, nor thy cattle,  nor the stranger that is within thy  gates; for in six days the Lord made  heaven and earth, the sea and all that  in it is, and rested the seventh day,  wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath  day and,hallowed it."���������������������������'"���������  God wished to perpetuate the fact  that he completed the world in six  days and rested on the seventh day of  'week' (Saturday). Now, for the _in-  lormation 'of the writer, I will point  out to him the fact that Sunday is observed because, the Saviour is said to  have risen from the dead on the first  day of the week, which is an entirely  ditlerent histoiical,biblical event from  that for which the command is given.  It would be just as sensible to call  Christmas, or any day of the week, the  Sabbath. So the writer will perceive  that it is lie who breaks the command  by keeping Sunday instead of.: Satur-  dav.  It is generally conceded by theologians and medical'men that rest consists ol" something different from the  usual occupation or routine. For instance, take a clerk who is grinding inside of a study office all week, surely  it is not rest lor him to mil in several  hours in a church on a Sabbath or. on  a Sunday, perhaps, as it often occurs,  surrounded by a lot of old or sickly  people, where the combined exhalations poison the heated air iu the  building, listening to the plan 01 salvation rehashed. No, sir. Give the.  children, old and y0ung people nil the  pure air and bright sunshine possible,  the green ioliage and trees, the beautiful flowers, the clear.waters,.the cooling breezes, and lee them listen to the  Godot' all nature through His songsters, the little birds. It will entrance  their hearts; it will broaden their  minds; it will give health, and it will  raise their thoughts in worship to God  in his own mighty cathedral erected,  and covered by the blue canopy oi  heaven, by Him who commanded that  Saturday, the seventh day, should be a  day of rest. Let them look with admiration on the beauty and glory ol  nature's objact lessons. These are the  kind of services which raise the heart  and elevate the soul to a grand conception of the greatness of the. Creator.  There aro no laws in B. C. against  breaking the Sabbath, or Saturday, but  there are Sunday observance laws.  Yours truly,  Albe'rt DAyiD.  Sandon, July 26, '99.

The Best Way Out.  The Sunday excursion was not a success and left the hand some SOO in the  hole. Everybody thinks everybody  else is .responsible for the shoitage;  but a better idea would be to devise a  scheme to help the boys. It is costing-  those who belong a fee every month to  pay their teacher's salary and purchase music, and the band is as much  service to everybody in town as.it is  to those who belong to it and have to  foot the costs. To help ease oil' the  strain, caused by tho financial failure  of tho excursion and the general lack  of support, a subscription list is' now  open at Cliffe's bookstore, headed by a  friend with ?5 00. We would be glad  to see other friends of the band contribute also in sums from. $1 up. It  lias cost the members of the band So 50,-  each to make up the shortage and that  with the regular assessments comes.a  little1 steep on- many of them. It is.  not so much now whether the excursion was or was not a mistake, as it is  meeting the issue.'. We may say that'  we are not prompted in this by any  member of the band but by goodwill  and.that of others who appreciate the  band, some of Who attended the excursion.  CHUUCH   NOTES.

'>       ., ,i  VICTORIA HARBOR, ONT.  Mr. Joseph Currier, a respected citizen of this place, was so bad with  ���������rheumatism that he^could .not attend  to his work. Two boxes of Milburn's  Rheumatic Pills have effected a complete cure.  "Keep the head cool and the bowels  cpen," is sensible advice to follow this  warm weather. If the bowels do not  move regularly, take Laxa-Liver. Pills.  They are small incsize, easy _ to take,  and do not gripe, weaken or sicken.  Mrs. James Constable, Seaforth, Ont., Writes:���������" Ever since I can remember  I have suffered from weak action of tlie heart. For some time past it grew constantly  worse. I frequently had sharp pains under my heart that I was fearful if I drew a  long- breath it would cause death. In froing- up-stairs I had to stop to rest aud regain  breath. When my children made a noise while playing I would be so overcome with  nervousness and weakness that I could not do anything and had to sit down to regain  composure. My limbs wore unnaturally cold and I was subject to nervous headaches  and dizziness.    My memory became uncertain and sleep deserted me.  " I have been taking Milburn's Heart and JNVrve Pills, and as a result am very  much better. I have improved in health and strength rapidly. Tho blessing ol sleep  is restored to me. My heart is much stronger, and lhe oppressive sensation has  vanished. ,1 can now go up-stairs without stopping and ,wilh the greatest of ease,  and I no longer suffer from dizziness or headache. It seems to me the circulation of  my blood has become normal, thereby removing the coldness from my limbs. I can  truly say that Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills have done me a world of good."

Such a community is Te-  huantepec, one of the most antique of  Mexico's prehistoric cities.      It is sit-  anted on  tho west shore of.  the peninsula    which    bears    its  name,  near  whore the Tohuantopec River empties  Into <he  Pacific.      Although    in    tho  heart   of    a country   that   is   dry  nnd  ,    sterile,  tho margins  of  its  river  can  bft irrigated and thero it is n picture  of fertility    and    plenty.      Fields    of  sugar cane spread along on either side,  groves of stately cocoanut palms rustle -their long,    crisp,   green    plumes  above them, and native huts with half-  naked children about them aro hidden  In the shade of mango, orange and lime  trees.  The town of Tehuantepeo fills the  whole valley of lho river, and contains  together with its surrounding "bar-  n'os," some 12,003 inhabitants. On the  south ii climbs a rocky hill several  hundred feet above tho river, and from  the door yards of the houses, perched  upon the rocks, a fine view may be ob-  tamed. Lofty, lound-crosted mountains arise in the distance, the blueish  tints of their barren sides shading  gradually down into the dull brown  of the surrounding plains, through  whxh desert waste runs a slender ribbon or green, marking the course of  tho Tehuanlopec.1  Centuries ngo, n wandering tribo of  Zapotecas    found  this    stream,    built  their   town   upon   its  borders   and  reclaimed  a   narrow  strip of  its  valley  that reaches down to the Pacific coast,  ten miles to the westward.   There are  -    comparatively few men in Tehtiantepec,  the great majority of the male popula-  . tion being absent most of the timo at  work  on   the  plantations  beyond    fho  mountains which divide   tho   isthmus.  As the traveler leaves the railway station and goes into tho town he will at  once remark Lho changed surroundings  that    a few    hours    of    travel    have  brought,him.   In crossing the isthmus  ha   has   journeyed from the comparatively  modern   town  of  Coatzacoaleos  into a district inhabited  by a race of  People,   that   to-day   are   tho   same   as  they ware hundreds of years ago.  They are a separate branch of the  Zapoteca tribe, with customs, traditions and festivals quite as peculiar to  themselves as their own exclusive history. There is a total absence of  modernism about Tehuantepeo, which  fact is doubtless, owing to its lack of  inducements for men of energy nnd  ��������� capital to settle there.

Around the waist is  knotted a broad rod sash or "rebosa,"  while on state occasions , the stocking-  less  foet    are    frequently   incased  in  bright green slippors.        By  far    the  most  attractive    feature  combined  in  this    costume   is   the   haind-made  lace  aud drawn work of tho huipil, camisa  and skirt  flounce.        Pew    foreigners  have any conception of the amount of  j/ainstaking   labor  expended   upon   the  beautiful  designs in  drawn  work,  for  (ho manufacturing of which the Mexicans are so justly celebrated,     In Tehtiantepec, as hii some other communities, it is the solo occupation of a large  pr6portion   of    tho    inhabitants,    and  thero  the  passer-by can  scarcely look  into tin open door without seeing  tho  framj with the linen stretched in it,  and the household, of all ages,  seated  around   it,  some, pulling   threads   out  and others weaving in the various figures.

This is  the  absence  of  old  historical  stitches  in the designs now to be found in the  markets.      Systematic inquiry  of   the  foremost    .dealers    and     'among    the  drawnwork makers themselves in    the  City of Mexico for suchi old and formerly well-known stitches as the "Marguerite,'- "Guadalupe," etc., has elicited  the  invariable    answer   that  they  were'no longer in demand.

Those who are so fortunate as  to have inherited a bit of ground with  a water right live in the midst of  plenty; , the others go. elsewhere to  seek work. Thus it happens that Te-  fiuantepee is a town of women. Here  the sex take the initiative in everything. ' In the market place there authority is supreme, and they will admit of absolutely no competition on  the  part of mankind.      The  men   are  ��������� - ���������^   uw     ^i.i    L-uexts.

Every, forenoon  tOie, great, siuare, open-sided market  house, is literally packed with them.  Some bring native chocolate, some  brown sugar, others flowers and, vegetables, here to exchange for. ornaments  and cotton cloths, the product of the  native looms. This is the mart where  all the petty native commerce centres,  and here tho women sit, or stand in  statuesque- poses, trading, laughing  and joking. ' It is a truly novel scene,  animated by the badinage of these  picturesque creatures with the forms  of -women and the minds and hearts of  children. Their costume is a curiou  mixture of the elegant and gaudy, th  primitive and the opulent, all combine  in the dress of the s;  single specimon of the two stitches  mentioned could be found and the dealers did not even know them, while tho  old perfiladoras shook their iieads sadly -and said: "No, we have no old  stitches; nobody wants chem any  more. The dealers encourage us to  form new stitches and make new combinations���������anything  for- variety."  Tehuantepeo is perhaps the one exception to the foregoing rule among  all the towns whore drawnwork is extensively   made.      This  fact  can  only  simply, not    permitted to    sell  there. I be accounted for by the remote loca-  ������������������__ ., _ ' tion of the community. There old designs are the rule rather than the exception; One historical stitch or design that may be found there in great  quantity and perfection is the "cross  and crown." This has the small  Greek    cross    in one    square  and the  darker races, while dark-complexioned  people among us, have, in addition to  the ordinary pigments, a trace of the  black color of the negro, more commonly present in our hair. There is  not, however, enough to destroy^ the  radical fairness of our skin, though in  exceptional situations, such as in tho  arm pits, its. presence may be very  evident. '        -,  As to the use of a black skin, Darwin  hinted that it might have been developed in corelation with the immunity  from malarial "diseases which "darkies " -enjoy, as it is true that white  sufferers acquire a darker complexion.  In support of the idea that the ancestors of, negroes and white mon  more nearly resembled'.. the latter in color,, a point not  mentioned ' by Prof.' Thompson,  might be -'.-brought forward, and  that  is  that  "pickaninnies"   at   their  many professional picture hangers follow in'the course of a day's  work: The hole made by .the screw is  enlarged and the edgefi of the plaster  are thoroughly moistened with water.  Then the space is filled with plaster  of pa:is and the screw pressed into the  sofl plaster. When the plaster becomes hardened the screw will be found  to hold very firmly.

It is one of the  prettiest arid most serviceable of the  designs now made, and one that is eminently, characteristic of the very religious community where it is found.  It is a great loss to the art that the  other ancient stitches have been dropped, for the time was when they were  the property of states and bishoprics:  In former, times the windows and beds  of; all the gubernatorial and ecclesiastical palaces throughout the republic  were  draped    with   these    exquisitely  quaint    conceits,-     the  design  emblematic   of   the  opulent,  in  that  only wit  to  their    brown,  aces and- fabrics  huge white headdress made of a lot of  staffly starched native lace, and is  worn Ln various ways, according to the  current occupation of the wearer.

It is the part of wisdom - to accus.-  tom a child, when. well, to putting  out its tongue., exhibiting its throat,  and keeping quiet for a few minutes  with a thei-mometer in its mouth in  order to register its temperature. It  is usually looked upon by baby as  good fun, and the'practise' saves a  deal of trouble when sickness appears  and the doctor coanes.

Thet frequency of knife duels In tho  cities of Southern Spain is appalling  to foreigners.

Statistics indicate that for every 1C0,-  (Klfli inhabitants there is an average of  one deuth per day resulting from these  knife duels.

Consumptives  Turned  n   Healthful   Com-  niunllyinlo tVuitlilliiKS.  ��������� Forty yedrs ago the inhabitants of  Mentone and neighborhood -wero a  healthy, happy race, of .splendid physique, to whom consumption was absolutely unknown.  Then Men tone became the Mecca of  the consumptive. ' Tho peasants left  their fauna and their healthy lives to  wait on the invalids. Farmers' wives  and daughters beoame washerwomen,  constantly handling clothing : iinpreg-  nato.d( with the go mis ot consumption.  Thousands of consumptives died there,  impregnating the toil and the water  with the germs of their disease.  As tha result, the earth, air and water of Mentone aro infested with the  tuberole bacillus, and the once healthy  peasantry are consumptives almost to  ai man and a woman. No more complete or startling proof of the truth  of the dhec derided go rm theoryof disease could .-' well' be imagined than  this.  POINTED PARAGRAPHS.

MOUNTAIN ECHOES.  *"* Slocan City is going   to have a new  school house.  Hammond's pack train is now operating at Trout Lake.  Silverton and Slocan City football it  at the latter place to-day.  The city council are doing much-  needed grading on Sunnyside ave.  The old Cody saw mill is no more.  Its skeleton is being removed to Sandon.  Dreyfus has been acquitted at last.  Of such slow movement.is the French  courts.  The English government has decided  that Airs. May brick cannot be released  from her life sentence.  Out of all the fish that are looking at  Sandon properties a number ought to  bite the silrer spoon.  Squire Lovatt is having some trouble  with the Until company over the building of their concentrator flume across  his property.  W. \V. Bonning, well-known in JNTel-  ��������� son aud Winnipeg,   was killed at  Republic the other day   by having his  head battered by robbors.  Mr. Pierson has given up all interest  in the Central hotel, and Mr. Fisher is  now running it. He has everything in  good shape for beer drinkers.  Stop that Cough ! Take warning. It  may lead to consumption. A 25c.  bottle of Shiloh's Cure may save your  life.   Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  Harry Pyinan, at one time with Mr.  Knowles, jeweller, this city, died at his  parents' home in New Denver, last  week of consumption, aged 24.  It is understood that the government  caucus at Victoria has decided that  Joseph Martin must go. Whether or  not he will take others with him remains to be seen.  Karl's Clover Root Tea, for constipation its the best, and if after using it  you don't say so, return the package  and get your money. Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  Dr. Wood's "Norway Pine Syrup was  the tint and original "pine" preparation for coughs and colds. All others  haying the name "pine" ace simply  imitations, somo of them worthless.  _ Sheriff Tuck is in town trying to  eject some parties from K. & S. property in theneighborhood of the .Ruth  concentrator. He finds sickness there  more permanent than it was in the  case ol tlie ladies arrested for selling  lace powders in Kaslo.  Mr. J. Irwin lias been engaged as  school teacher at New Denver. When,  some time ago, the Sandon trustees  thought of hiring him, some thought  he was not as popular at New Denver  as he might have been. His present  engagement there settles that.  P. J. Hickey, one of Sancton's big  mining men, arrived at the Phair last  night. In conversation with a Miner  reporter, Mr. Hickey said that he had  10 men at work on tne Ivanhoe and if  it had not been for the Eight-Hour  law he would have 80 on his payroll.���������  Kelson Miner.  Barrister Grimraett was conducting  Crown business in Kaslo this week.  Mr. E. M. Sandilands has been appointed a notary public for the province.  T he "white-shirted hobos" of Rossland are getting a government building  after all.  Tlie Rev. Cleland will exchange pulpits with Rev. Menzies, of Kaslo, tomorrow.  Kaslo was visited by a porcupine the  other day. It's a wonder they did not,  arrest him for selling face powders.  It is reported that 100 people lost  their lives on tho Edmonton trail to  the Klondyke. All is not gold that  glitters.  They arc marrying Lawyer Christie  very often. Some, who profess to know,  s>iy he is now at the Coast committing  matrimony.  The Kootenay Presbyter will hold  an adjourned meeting in Whitewater  on August 1st, to ordain J. A. Ferguson, Missionary there.  ' Catarrh cured. A clear head and  sweet breath secured with Shiloh's  Catarrli Remedy. AVe sell six bottles  for $3 and guarantee an absolute cure.  Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  Wohms.���������These pests of childhood  are readily expelled by the use of Dr.  Low'? Pleasant Worm Syrup. It is  simple, safe, effectual, and contains its  own cathartic.   Price 25c.  The Kootenaian in reporting "Home  Mining news" refers to the Payne, the  Queen Bess, the Arlington, etc., etc. Ia  not this a long way from home? The  boy must be lost surely.  Shiloh's Consumption Cure cures  where others fail. It is the leading  Cough Cure, and no home should be  without it. Pleasant to take and goes  right to the spot. Sold by McQueen tlie  .uruggist. ~~~~'  For Constipation tane Karl's Clover  Root Tea, the great Blood Purifier.  Cures Headache, Nervousness, Eruptions on the skin, and makes the nead  I clear as a bell. Sold at McQueen's  Drug Store.  A small blaze in the rear of the  White house, Wednesday evening, kept  the proprietors busy for a time with  tlie house hose, before putting it down,  and a miracle can now be recorded in  Sandon���������a token of lire without the  alarm being sounded.  There arc cigars and cigars, but if  you really want a good healthy smoke,  of a cigar that will not rob your purse,  you will use the "Interior" or "La  Morena" manufactured by the Inland  Cigar Manufacturing Co. of Kamloops.  One trial carries conviction.  Public; School Picnic���������Next Wednesday, Aug. 2nd, on the picnic ground  at Cody. Ail children in town are invited along with tlieir parents and  friends of the school. Everyone to  take basket, with cups and spoons.  The train may be taken for Cody at  11:30.  ft Word on BEEF TEftS.  Meat extract resembles Beef Tea made at  home in the fact that it contains no nourishment at all. Hard doctrine this for the  ladies who think that nothing can equal  their own make.    How is  H. BYERS & CQ.  Nourishing then ? Because it is not a meat  extract only; it contains in addition the  nourishing qualities of pure lean ox bsef  highly concentrated and pulverized. Bovril  is, therefore, superior to meat extracts or  beef tea.  jptESSBSiS'^^  CUSS RU.

At the council meeting Monday  about the only business done was to  order the expenditure of $25 on the  Sunnyside road; pay $100 on the Cody  road, and pay the sidewalk accounts.  The solicitor was instructed to take  steps to remove obstructions, including  houses, on the Cody road.  Colonel Robert Ingersoll is dead and  buried. It is generally said that unbelievers in the divinity of Christ, as  Ingersoll was always, die in', great  agony of mind. The death of Ingersoll, however, disproves this. He expired in his own residence, surrounded  ,by his own family, as calmly as the  most beautiful summer evening.  The garment makers of New York,  who were working by the piece, have  struck. They want employment for  ten hours instead of eight to enable  them to make money. It would have  to be an inconsistent legislature which  could make laws to suit'the New York  garment makers andthe B.C. miners.  Mr. Harris is making some improvements on his property at the rear of  the Goodenough: Mr. Phypers residence, in addition to being moved  back, is uuder the hands of ttie painter  and paperhanger. When the city council grade that part "of Slocan Star street  it will much usiprove the appearance  of the city and afford a small recreation ground for the boys.  As evidence that the Slocan is a safe  and profitable field for investment we  cite the recent purchase of the Galena  .Farm group, at SiJverton, by A. W. Mc-.  Cune aud W. L. Hoge, of the Payne  Company. These shrewd mining men  and capitalists,besides their Payne interests���������which have been veritable bonanzas to them���������have several good  stakes around Sandon, and know a  good thing when they see it.  The Kootenaian is still pegging away  away at that arrest of the two women  for selling face powders. It asserts  that they could not be respectable  women judging from their language.  As the Kootenaian man has a nose  particularly'adapted for that kind of  work,we suggest he apply to Mr. Green  for a' government appointment as inspector of respectable characters, and  tfaat he be located at the boundary,  somewhere in the neighborhood of  Eykert's. ''  Notwithstanding all the oratory that  Mr. Walker, of the Spokane labor  paper, wasted here a short time ago, to  bIiow it was the non-union men that  caused the Bunker Hill and Sullivan  disaster ending in th 3 loss of life, a  jury has found Corcoran, a leader of  the miners' union, guilty, and he has  been sentenced to 17 years' imprisonment.  It is reported that W. B. Mclnnes,  son of the lieut.-governor, is likely to  be Martin's successor in the cabinet ;  but, for lhe honor of the government  and its followers, >ve hope this is not  the case, it would create them all a  lot.of cringers the'eountry cannot endorse. It is well believed by the country at large that Lieut.-Governor Mclnnes dismissed Turner to get his son  into the attorney-generalship, and giving it to him now will only be regarded  as Semlin's lease. The country has  had enough of the Mclnneses as well as  the Martins.1  E. M. SANDILANDS,  SLOCAN  MINES  Sandon," B. C.  Mining Stocks bought and sold.   General agent for Slocan properties.
