 I  AWAY.  VOL. 3-NO. 39. -  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 1900.  FIVE CENTS.  ,imo w PLfiii:  With a Few Remarks aud Criticisms  by trie Editor,  The following platform has been  drawn up .by tlie Slocan City Miners'  Union.'and endorsed by thoir members  Inst Wednesday evening. It will be  submitted for the approval of every  miners' union and labor organization  in British Columbia within the next  few weeks:  1st. Wc demand of-the Provincial  Legislature thc enforcement of' the  Eight-Hour Law, and its application to  all branches of manual labor.  2nd. Legal recognition by incorporation of Labor Unions and the extention  to them of the same rights enjoyed by  other corporate bodies.  3rd. To provide for adjustment of  wage disputes by arbitration on plana  similar to that now in force in New  Zealand.  4th. To provide for settlement of  public questions by direct vote under  tiie initiative and Referendum.  5th. Government ownership ,of all  Railway, Telegraph and Telephone  lines to be constructed, and tlie acquiring of those already in use as soon as  practical; and to prevent extortion as  far as possible by the control "of till  Railway, Telegraph and Telephone  lines for public use and to fix a reasonable maximum rate which they may  charge for service.  6th. An act to prevent employment  of Chinese in any mines, factories, or  public works within the Province.  7th. , An act to provide proper safeguards to life and health, and. to provide mi efficient mine inspection system to procure these rcaults.,  8th. An act to establish County or  Local government throughout the  Province ; all officers of such, both judicial and executive, to be elected by  thc popular vote of their respective  localities.  Thralldornis that feature of legislation that deprives men of their libertj  of action. To that extent .the miners  of the province are in thralldom, and  the unions appear to desire its continuance. We have long since held that  with liberty of choice all classes of  employes shsuld have thc benefits of  all legislation shortening thc hours of  labor. How the present law would  serve masons, carpentors,etc.,who work  but part of the year is another ques  tion? For instance, shortening hours  of labor means lessening days' wages.  How, then, will lessening the days'  wages ot those who have employment  but a part of the year suit them ?" This  is a problem to solve.  Article 2 is impracticable as matters  stand in British Columbia to-day.   If  all labor unions, operating in the province, were wholly British Columbian  with their,nowers and jurisdiction defined in their charters, there would be  much to recommend the.demand ; but  certainly unions managed and controlled by foreign corporations ennnot  hope for thc recognition they desire.  The demand is in conflict with all constitutional usages.  Art. 3. When means are discovered  to compel labor, as well us capital to  abide by the decisions of" arbitrations  law would be workable, but hot until  then. As long as laborers are at, liberty; to .put their' hats on and walk  away from thc consequences of an'  award, while capital has to stand and  abide by them, arbitration boards  will be ineffectual.  Art's 4 and 5 are commendable when  the proper legal machinery is there to  rightly enforce thc consequences.  Art's G and 7 are decidedly in the  public interest and ought to be crystallized into legislation as soon as possible. <���������       r-  Art>S has been advocated by The  Review for tho last two years. In the  case of officials, however, where a certain educational qualification, is necessary���������all candidates should be compelled to pass an examination -before  submitting their names to popular vote.  THE RETURN MATCH.  In  ���������Which the Sandon Juniors'Turn the  Tables on the Kaslo Seniors.  The return match between the Kaslo  senior and tho Sandon junior hockey  teams was played on the ice here on  Saturday evening. On account of thc  soft weather the ice was out of condition, but was, of course, as fair for one  as the other. Tlie visitors re.iohed  here by.speoial train about 0 o'clock,  accompanied by a large number of  Kaslo sports to see the second success  of what the Kootennian culled "Koslo's  champions." The visitors \ver<? met  by the Sandon band at thc Reoo hotel  and escorted to the rink,' whom they  enlivened thc evening's ��������� proceedings  at intervals.. The team's got down to  work as" follows :  On Thursday morning Clias. McNeil,  F. II. Pheppard and Alex. MeFarlnne  were returning home from night shilt  at tho Noble Five mine when they  were overtaken by the annual avalanche, overpowered and carried down  a considerable distance. The rest of  the operatives at the mine act to work  with almost superhuman energy to extricate tlie men' and finally succeeded  in their work in titno tosnve McNeil  alive, but too late to render service to  'the other two, who were quite dead  when found.' The body of snow this  time was not large, and the probabilities nrp that' had they reached the  dead men u little earlier they might  have saved them alive.  Mr. McFnrlane was a single man and  came from Prince Edward Island.   Mr.  mines and hiinin  b.  KASLO.  SANDON.  The Lardo-Duncan Promising.  lioggan  S. S. Connanton, manager of the  Lodestar Gold .Mining and Development Co., Ltd., returned from a visit of  inspection on the upper Duncan river,  and while away instituted extensive  repairs to the steamer Marion, now on  the ways at Duncan City. This boat  is now in such.condition, as will make  her most complete. Her .facilities for  handling all kinds -of traffic to the  Lardo-Duncan country have been increased in man3r ways, particularly in  the transportation of live stock. Mr.  Connautou reports that from present  indications a season of unexampled  activity will lie experienced in that  district.���������Kootenaian.  Not Quite True.  It is not true, as reported in the Sil-  vertonian, that the Emily Edith is  shortly to open up with a targe force  of men. We may as well advise these  prints and the business people as a  whole, that there will bo no general  opening up of the mines nor extensive  development work until acceptable  changes are made in the mining laws.  It is then on the shoulders of the men  and the prints that advise the retention of the law as it is that the consequences of mining inactivity must rest.  If they insist, on such a. law here, as  exists nowhere else under similar conditions, thc consequent loss to the  countty and scarcity of work for  miners must be at the doors of these  people.

'  There is a dispute as whether or not  Sandon made one of the goals allowed  by the umpire, in any event Kaslo had  a big "0." The 3 scoreil by Sandon  were made by McKinnon, Hood and  W. Cliffe.  The beauty of it all is that both  matches wers- played in the best of  good nature. In fact when these  matches degenerate into squabbles  they are no longer sport or recreation.  After the match all repaired to the  Balmoral dining rooms, where an excellent supper, was laid. After the  cravings of the inner man were appeased toasting, in true banquet style,  was the order, with^ M. L. Grimmett  and C. W. McAnn (Kaslo) in tho respective chairs. After thc toast to the  Queen tliere followed a feast of song  and flow of soul took up a couple of  hours more of the night.

Sheppard resided at Cody with his  wife, who remains to' mourn his sudden and altogether unloosed for demise. Thc miners' union sent up some  contrivances to bring the bodies down  also looking after tho funeral obsequies.  Conventions'.  Police   Court.  We are likely to have   conventions  galore in a few weeks.    If Joe Martin  succeeds in forming a cabinet he will  hold a convention in tho Slocui.   The  Semlin-Cotton party are likely to hold  one.   The Conservatives are most sure  to hold one- anc; we are  advised   that  there  will be another   to bring  out a  man in support of the business  interests of thc country, one prepared to repeal, or rather modify, thc  eight-hour  law.   As it is an absolute certainty the'  mines of^tlie Kootenay will not generally open  to employ any considerable  number of minors while the law stands  as it is,  all  sensible miners must see  that a candidate committed to such a  policy as will open up the mines of the  country in all their strength should be  the one for them to support.   Of caursc  if the Conservative convention brought  out such a candidate, who even might  favor "the principle of the eight-hour  law" and still'snpport tho alterations  wo indicate, lie is the one Thc Review  would prefer to support; but if it does  not do that The Review must support  some   respectable man   committed to  such policy.   Tl--������ itdvaivruuenb of the  country's natural intcrests,tuid through  them the prosperity of the people, is  the lirst consideration of T.ie Mining  Review.  Tlie Tom Moore,up above McGuigan,  has six men working.  Tho Queen Bess is making regular  shipments from Three Forks.  Tt is said the Ruth concentrator will  begin operations next week, which will  do much to enliven tilings in town.  Tho Wakefield concentrator and tram  arc now completed and are working to '  the entire satisfaction of till interested  parties.   About 40 men are tit work on  the property.  The Molly Gibson promises to be  one of the largest mines in the country.  Tliere are now 35 men at work on the  property, and a valuable seam of ore. is  being followed.  The Hartnoy, the Marion, the Cap-  ella, thcMollic Hughes and the Lost  Tiger situated around New Denver  promise to become valuable properties  under development.  The Bosun, at.New Denver, has on a  force of 4S men, which are all, Mr.  Sandiford says, the property has room  for at present. They are now running  on a great body of ore.  Messrs. Stace and Brockman, English capitalists, large holders in the  Ajax fraction, have had their eyes on  the Monitor, .near Three Forks, and  bought it List week at ������125,000 from  Mr. Petty. The mine, some years ago  was quite n shipper yielding the large-  est gold values of any mine in these  parts._ This is the only transfer of any  magnitude that has taken place in  these parts for some time.  The Joker group, on the south fork  of Kaslo creek, has a 50-foot shaft, 300  feet of drifts with an upraise of 120  feet to the surface. The paystrcak  runs from 18 inches wide to the full,  width of the tunnel. The vein is 30  feet wide with wcll-deiined walls, and  in parts two valuable paystreaks are  found. Assays run 9 oz. silver and  ���������flOO in gold." Over 1000 feet of tunneling have been driven.  Appreciate the Kindness.

Two brothers  named Sears claiming to reside at Nelson, the one  as plaintiff and the other  as witness; had one McCaffrey, late of  Montana  and who is now stopping at  the   Klondike,   before   the   court  for  drawing a cheque on the bank in which  he   had no money.   They   claimed it  was payment of  money   he  borrowed  to invest in a mine which they owned  at Nelson.-,  McCaffrey   contended   he  had , borrowed no   money from  them,  and that they had already got $350 out  of him in payment lor a property they  never owned, and then threatened this  suit,  or rather non-prosecution  if he  would pay them S250 more.   Evidence  was adduced to convince the court that  it was a case of "pull," and it was dismissed  with costs on the prosecution.  The   chief  then gave the Sears   two  hours in which to get out of town, and  they got.   Christie lor Sears and Grimmett for McCaffrey.  ���������'Fighting Joe" to the Jbiescue.  C, P. R.

The occasion  will always be a pleasant remembrance  in the memory of each one who was so  fortunate as to be present.

The Canadian Pacific Railway Company  has just issued  two excellent immigration pamphlets for 1900���������"Western Canada"' and "British Columbia"���������  which contain a great deal of useful  and accurate   information   about  the  country west of Lake Superior, and are  of special interest to those  who  contemplate   settling   in   the   Canadian  Northwest or British Columbia.   Large  editions of   those pamphlets are   distributed gratuitously in  Great Britain  and   the   United  States,   as   well   as  throughout   the   Dominion,   and   are  eagerly read by those who are seeking  a new home and desire  to know something of thc best country in the world  in which to find.one.  .^^  The Important Matter.

Joe Martin says he will make such  modifications in the mining laws as  will alloy all hostility between miners  and owners.. If that is possible, which  we very much doubt, unless' all penalty  obligations are removed, why did he  not see that such a law, instead of the  present one, was passed in the first  place? We are quite sure it''would  have been better, to have avoided the  trouble between tlie owners and the  men in the first place than to endeavor  to cure it now with a handful! of chaff  on the eve of provincial elections.

Three victims have been  caught in its deadly grasp, in the  memory of residents, and now follow  two more.  Where tho miners' unions and those  prints, that have been declaring that  the eight-hour law must stand as it is,  will find  themselves at a general election  is a problem  for them   to  pick  their teeth with.   Joe Martin  says he  will pass such legislation as will reconcile both owners and miners���������a strange  statement for a man who is responsible  for the present law and its disastrous  consequences.   We are also in  a position to prove, from documents in  our  possession, and which we are at liberty  to show to any one, that Semlih, Cotton  & Co. were willing to form a coalition  with Turrierr&'Co., about the last days  of the session of the House just closed,  and .one plank   in  the joint platform  was the repeal of the eight-hour law or  to so emasculate it as to destroy  its  identity.   Then with no party before  the country in favor of the eight-hour  law,  as it stands,   or rather with all  parties ready to repeal or amend it, we  ask the question again,  where will the  miners unions stand in the contest?  JohnHouston asks, "How many of  the mine owners and managers are  able to control a vwte other than their  own ?" A few weeks ago, in his eyes,  they were all aliens and without votes  themselves, but even Houston can still  learn something. He still clings to the  belief, however, that votes are of morn  importance, as they doubtless are to  self seekers like himself, thanthe material interests of the country. The  Review happens to think that, a large  inflow of capital, opening up the country affording ample employment to  every one who wanted it at fair wages,  would be preferable to the present condition of things���������most all tlie mines  shut down and adventurers vote limit- ���������  ing.

On Jon. 20 the "total force of  regular troops actually in South A'f-  llrica and on their way there fronii Tn-  dia, and EngHand was 15 regiments of  cavalry, U batteries of horse artillery,  41 field baitea-ies, two mountain batteries hud 83 battalions of infantry.  Putting thiise different organizations  at theitr full strength they would work  out as follows :��������� ,  The 15 vegfimeuts of cavalry at 500  barsos e;uah, whio'h is moro than some  of those in tho fitfld have, gives 7,500  effectives.  Tho nine batteries of horse artillery  with 130 tneta and 80 horses each, give  1,170  Kien,  and  720   horses.  The -U field batteries with the saimo  oompulmenls uif men and hcirses givo  7,720 inian and 3,520 horses.  The two mountain batU'iries, with  1<X) men, and 70 horses or Jmullos, each  give 200 mun and 140 horse's  or mules.  The 83 battalions of infantry, reckoning thidfrni 'at their fu'll war strength,  would give 83,000 men, but it is doubtful if the average ericctive of the who!e  number can be reckoned at more than  850 each. This would reduce the total   lo 70,550 inon.  The enlitre strength then, of the regular forces, would be by tho above  analysis 87,140 men and 11,880 botrses.  To ihe numiber of horses, however,  should be added those of the mounted  infantry actually in the field.- What  the mumheir of these may be cannot  be stated !with ceirtainty, as no definite report of .their nmni/ber has ap-  jteared in anjr account oif the forces  in the field. Erom. the fragmentary  i-.toctounts of the forces engaged on,different occasions, they cannot, be estimated at much more than 6,000. This  v\iouBd bring the.number up to 17,800.  The totad of the colonial contingents  does not come up to more .thmi 5,000  men, with' perhaps 3,000 horses,' and  tins local Natal and Cape Colonial  corps, though officially put; at 20,000,  are,.from the accounUii-.pu.biLshed, not  miudi mora (hari half* that number,  probably 12,000 men with, say, 10,000  horses.

Ten Letter Words and Pbraaea Cn������-  , aen as Secret Signs.  ��������� Among the old time features which are  disappearing from the city stores because  of the modern methods is the cabalistic  cost mark which the merchant once  thought as Indispensable as the counter  over which he sold his wares.  The man who started a business for  himself devoted many hours before he  made his first display of wares to "making up" a'cost mark. This had to be unlike any other mark and was in some instances composed of ten hieroglyphics,  often transposed figures and more often  of a word or,two, the letters of which  could be used to express figures. A large  wholesale concern in New York used the  mark "God save us" and made up tho  tenth figure with a cross. -{Through this  business house the pious cost murk became known all over tlie country. Clerlio  from the establishment entered nml took  the cost murk with them, and within a  few years it wits in use in nearly every  state in the Union.  Another cost mark which found ninny  admirers was "Make profit," nnd this  was only a trifle more popular, than  "Quick trade." "Johnny Miles" served  as a sign as well as u cost mark for one  concern, nnd one sentimental Irishman  who opened n linen store in New York in  thc days when Niblo's Garden was  "away up town" chose as his cost mark  "My Bridget O."  When the campaign of 1860 was at ltd  height, an ardent Republican in Boston  in whose store ii cost mark was in use  that hud been invented by his grandfather marked nil his goods over in order  to use the 'mark, "Abe must win," nnd  this mark remained In use for years after  "Abe" had won the ficht ngainst Douglas, Breckinridge and Bell, who were all  candidates against Lincoln. About that  time the cost mark "Hit Douglas" was  Invented, and that and "Republican" are  still in use in places where plain figures  have not superseded the puzzle marks.  A large dry Roods house which had tha  patronage of hundreds of pack, basket  and wagon peddlers used an a cost mark !  the words. "Revoch Gilt," n Yiddish  phrase, which means "Profit tells," and  the translation was nlso used by the same  concern.  "These marks were useful," said ths  manager of one of the large New York  dry goods stores, "when houses had an  'asking' and a 'taking' price. In those  days the man behind the counter had to  know what the goods cost to put on the  shelf so that he could regulate himself,  accordingly.

The lunch man _has been in the  business for years and knows what he is  saying. "I'll tell you how they do it.  They get up in the morning and with 6  cents go to a 3 cent lunch room. There  they procure a cup of coffee and a sandwich, each costing 3'cents, or something  of that sort   This is sullicieut for them.  "At lunch time they visit the 3 cent  place ngniu nnd with a piece of pie and  a glass of milk are contented until dinner. That is a total of 12 cents. At dinner they go to the regular lunch or dining  rooms and eat themselves happy on 15  cents. At a number of regulur dininjr  rooms in the city a dinner can be bought  for 15 cents and will he a good one too.  It will consist of soup and bread, ouo  j ment and one entree, two vegetables, a  piec* of pie or other dessert and a cup of  tea or coffee.    ���������  "But where these sharpers do the lunch  room proprietors is in another way..They  have  become so expert at  the  business  that they know when each dining room is  to  have a certain dish   Tor dinner,  und  therefore they have their pick o.������.meats  and  other  things.    1   remember  that  1  Used to serve chicken on u certain day.

"Well, to tell you tho truth, I think  ibe has  got into  a rather   fast set."  Matthew's Quaker hair rose. "What  lo  you. mean 1"  he asked,  staring at  low.vrd in alarm."  "Why, it is chiefly that play-wril-  tig fellow, Duval. He dims a comedy to  tie brought out. in New York next week  ind about twenty young people here  propose to make up a party for the  'first night.' Evelyn is among them.  They have a rather good chaperon, as  it happens,  but "  "She must not go," snid Matthew.  ." I thought, you'd see it that way,"  ffoward replied, with a satisfied air.  ^So all you have to.do when she demands money for this expedition; Is I  to sny ' No.' You on;n do this, because.'

I tried lo reason  ritta her; Aunt Patty coaxed her���������aill  io no effect. She is bent on going."  Two or three days after the visit of  Howard's Miss Idlewild went down  twn to see Matthew in his office at  (he bank���������"on business," as she said,  lemurely,.  Matthew felt like > an ogre in the  task before him,, and. what made it  larder to bear, he knew that she never  ir������n.ni.nd  he wauTd   refuse  her,  so ac  customed was she to his indulging her  every whim. - ,    .  ���������Give the poor cripple a dime, sne  began.in  her absurd way.  "Certainly."    said    Matthew    with  crave politeness, and he took a bright  new dime out of a liltle roll of coins  fresh from the mint and binded it to  her.   So she looked a little disconcerted   and abandoned this method   of attack. , t    .      i  "Matthew,  I    am    bankrupt,  insolvent, farced to mate nn astignmen-,'  she htiifl  in    a  plaintive,   spoiled-child  tone.   "I want  some money���������a   lot  of  money, in fact���������for a.very special purpose.   May  I h ive it ?"  "A  lot?"   repntiled, Matthew.  "Yes; that   is,  at   least n   hundred."  Matthew Ic ked grave.   "What is the  special purpose?" he inquired, fervently hoping she would tell him all about  the proposed   theatre parly.  "Thnt's n secret," said Miss Idle-  wild, With an air of mystery.  "I can not lot you have any money  just now, live," he said goutly, nf er  a pi use, and as hei spoke he carefully  avoided her eye and stared with rapt  absorption at the carpet.  "Hut. Man hew. I hnvon'r any money," she said piteously, hi If laughing,  half emb.irrassed, "and  Howard is so  mea'u he will not lend me'nny.   I shall  have to sit on the curbstone and    sell  I neo lies if nobody will take pity on me..*'  I   "You hove overdrawn your account  ' several  monlhs  deep,"  s.iid  Matthew,  j still    studying     the    carpet.   "It'_ is  wrong for me lo allow you to do this."  "But now,  when I   want il so bad.  ly.   It is    cruel  io refuse me now.   I  will economize after Ibis, Matthew.   I  will,' indeed."  Poor Matthew found it terribly  hard not to yield to her, but Howard's  words, "fast set," recurred to him,  and he steeled himself against her  pretty beseeching.  "Matlhew, ple.ise," she said  after,a  pause, with ju;l a little tremble* in her  ] voice  and   an  expression  on   her  face  whi:-h &houl.l have melted an iceberg.  But Mauhesv was looking at the  carpet.  Perhaps that was why ho had  strength to sny "No" again, and in  such a way that Miss Idlewild knew  that all her pretty pleading was wast,  ed. Then, of course, she. blazed upi into anger, her eyes flashing and cheeks  hot''with indignant feeling.  "Of course you can do as you. choose  about iL," she snid, which was a rather  superfluous remark under the circumstances.  'I mean it only for the best, Eve,"  he said sadly. "This unwise project"  ���������but here ho stopped, rather horrified at himself for having nearly betrayed Howard. i  "Thai is my affair," sho interrupted with terrible dignity. "Besides,  you know nothing of Ihe 'project,'  whether it is unwise or not. ' It is  the money  you  refuse  me."  Matthew shivered and looked at tho  carpet   very   hard   indeed.  "Hereafter," continued Miss Idle-  wild, with a, grand air, "I will manage  my own money matlers. Then 1 will  know just how much I have and spend  it a? I please, Without begging for il.  I lim oif- ago, and I will not: endure  such   treatment' any  longer."  lAil this she said in anger, never  dreaming ' that long-suffering Matthew would take her at her word!.  "Very well," he said, and he. was a  liltle paler as he spoke. "I will take  steps to this end at once. ..You'.will  find I have not abused my trust."  Incensed-jis she was, Miss Idlewild's  head drooped with something like  shame, at theso words. !: Never in her  life had Matthew spoken to her like  this; never before had she felt abashed  and frightened in his presence. A  swift sense of his fidelity and her own  ingratitude  rushed over her.  "Matthew I" she faltered, and^ she  .tooK a; step forward, but he turned  .away-    ��������� '.  .'���������;.'.. ���������-././'.���������,': .��������� ���������'������������������'       ///;'''���������  "You will pardon me if I leave: you,"  he said formally, "I am very busy this  mrtining." ,/.;;'  , He held the door open for her, and  with burning cheeks she hurried out,  and no work was spoken by Neitheras  they  parted. , ..   ;  Matthew could not have been so  very .busy, as he said, for after his  visitor was gone he sat there at his  desk a long time, motionless, with his  head bowed���������still staring at the carpet... ���������,' .' ,:.���������-"  'Of course, she afterward made an  abject apology for her behavior, calling Matthew the best, the kindest  friend n girl ever had and herself a  wicked ingrate. And she put on nn  air of penitence and humility which  was very sweet and unusual. Not a  word more did she speak about the  theater party. She implored him to  keep her finances in his hnnds, and  when he steadily refused she broko  down and cried so grievously.'that ho  yielded  from sheer fright.

He was very kind to her, but he did  not call her Evo any more, and there  was n sort of coldness and. apathy in  his manner, to her which, try as she  would, she could not overcome.  Certainly she tried to make amends  to him in a thousand ways. Indeed,  her manner to him was so much gentler that he began to think that sho  bad guessed his secret���������that she, pitied  him.  Matthew lived only about half a  block .from- the Joys, and Evelyn was  in the habit of running in and out of  hia house as if it: were her own. She  was a very special pet of Miss Abby,  Matthew's maiden sister, who kept  house fox him, and who knew nothing about the girl's latest impertinence to her brother. Perhaps���������women  are sharp . ira, such matters���������she may  have guessed Matthew's secret, but if  so, she nefver made any sign.

It was  about fifteein minutes later, just as  he hod settled down for hisj tvening's  reading, when he heard the door bell  ring, then quick footsteps running  down the hall, ��������� followed: by a gentle  tap at his door.  He did not say "Dome in," but got  up, with .some irritation, and opened  the  door.  It was Miss Idlewild, in evening  diress, wit h a frothy-looking pink  thing over he.r head and < shoulders���������  lnughing and out of breath.  Now Mai thew ..had been fathoms  deerp in a formidable looking tome-  trying to find forgelfulness in etudy,  and. moreover, hei was very strict  n'bfvut matters of dlekionum. So he  frowned at the apparition, lovely  though it iway, nmd.,' ���������hardened his  heart.  "May. I come in ?" she said demurely-  Matthew looked at her unsmilingly  still  holdimg on  to the door. ,  "Abby is. out," he said. "She has  gone  with rome ladies  to  a lecture."  "Tow lively for her!" paid Mi������s  Tdlewild rather quickly. Appnrently  she was heir old self this evening.  "Perhaps you bad better go into Ihe  sitting rooim," .cnld��������� Matthew, in' n  tone which, he, meant to he. at once  po'ito and crushing.  The girl laughed, not the least  abT--hed. and made a little bow.  "Yonr hospitality overwhelms me,"  she snid mockingly. "Why not invito  me to pit in; the hnll ?"  "Came in," paid Mali how, phortly,  dropping his, hand from thp dnnr.  Wns she' lauerhiing nt his misery?  Might he not have even peace? was  his angry reflection.  "Ii was.

"Did you oomo oveir here with no  wrap but that flimsy th'mg ?" nske.d  Mali hew, looking his veiry crosses).  "Yes. prandmolher."

Then he said: "You will take cold  going back, i will send for a shawl,  and lie rang, the bell as, he spoke.  "1 woin'i have any shawl," baid Miss  Idlewild, pettishly, "h'irst you receive me as if'T were a chimney sweep  then you toold me for a mere harmless jest, und now you waul mo to  wear a shawl 1    I.won't* do it."  ."You-will."    ]  "Well, you will .^ce.

But Matthew was proof against nonsense. Not a smile oscaped him,. A  huge gray shawl arrived per maid and  he began to unfoldy it, with a determined   eye.  "I tell you I won't wear it," she said  'petulantly, ; tout ,,she was growing  rather pink with apprehension as Matthew steadily advanced/ the shawl/outspread in his hands.

Matthew construed this as a base  eaipitulatio-i to escape the shawl, so  he was not moved, by it!"  "I'm going to take you home now,"  he ait id, "and I want you to wear this.

THE SCIENCE OF BED MAKING.  .1 I'eutlirr Kid and Might Covering Are  ISsseullal lor C'ontl'orluble EcpoKe���������Some  I'.vperi I������e<l  lisika-m.  The science and practice of bod making has undergone a radical change in  the past' few years. In newly done-  over and decorated houses, nothing  could be more impressive, more luxurious and more radical in its departure from the hitherto accepted laws  of hygiene than  the  new  beds.  The-model just now in the .bouses  where antique mahogany sweeps everything before it is the Georgian bed.  Three could sleep, with an abundance  of stretching room, in the area inclosed by the four massive carved posts of  one of these big couches and thtree mattresses are required to bring the  sleeping platform up to the required  and in w.nter on top of these reposes  a mighty tick stuff ed'full of the best  white goose feathers. When these requirements are fulfilled the full-fledged Georgian bed is dressed with great  attention to detail and elegance. Old  brocade edged witl bullion fringe is  used for the hangings and counterpane  that sweeps the floor, and. the ooat of  arms of  the owner  is  carved on   the  11J0AU  BOARD  Oh'  THE  COUCH.  It is not everybody who can lay  hands on a genuine carved Georgian  bed op- dress i,t in antique brocade,  but even the modern brass and iron  bed or dress it in antique brocade,  feather-stuffed mattresses for winter  usei are no. longer a mere fashion but  are a general custom. ITor half a century the feather bed has been looked  upon very coldly by experts in hygiene,  but recently both with regard to the  hangings and the feather mattress, a  change of heart has come and delicate,  nervous neuralgic, rheumatic women  and particularly elderly persons and  those/afflicted with insomnia have been  recommended: to, take the feather bed  oure in the winter. ��������� Queen Victoria is  one of the shining piroofs of the efficacy of the'feather bed, for where she  goes a big tickful of feathers in its  leather traveling jacket goes too, and  always the curtains are drawn about  the bead of the bed to shut: off the  the head of the bod to shut bff any  draughts. Queen Victoria and her doctors believe that, tho proper way to  sleep in winter is in a cold room! luxuriously Lapped in a nest of feathers that  preserves all the heat, of the body and  necessitates in the coldest weather, a  covering, of only one pair of blankets  and a/down quilt, The modern bed.  so-called hygienic, requires more heavy  covering than a pair ol tired shoulders  can stand, and the hair mattress constantly dissipates the human heat instead of conserving it, besides drawing  away that priceless force, human electricity ; at least that is what advocates  of the  feather bed say.  All this drain tho feathers prevent,  the easily yielding surface they present  permits perfect relaxation of the muscles, that an never be gained on a bed  of even the best hair. With the coming of the eighteenth'century type of  English bed the feather mattress  was introduced and now there/are  numbers'of women who.have not only,  learned their/virtues but like the  queen of England travel about with  their beds done up in leather, cases.  Some of the rheumatics,and sufferers  from cold feet have pronounced themselves free from their afflictions when  luxuriating ; ���������'.-:=  /      AMONG   THE   FEATHERS.  Feather beds are comings into use  as well in nurseries, and though for  children the Georgian fourposter isinot  yet thc fashion, the gayest beds are  made 'to chime in with the schemes of-  nursery decoration. Charmingly carved  and x*ainted. wooden beds are newly introduced, else they have brass or sometimes silver let into- the dark' wood,  in appropriate scenes and inscriptions.  On tho headboard of n light maple bed  for example, will be painted a night  scene, of clouds across the moon, and a  flight of owls; on the footboards aline  of caroling cock greeting the sun typifies   morning.  So prominent are the beds in handsome sleeping rooms nowadays, that'  it is no wonder their clothing shows  all the art and lavish ' beauty and  of a fashionable woman's wearing .apparel.

The Sad  Rcsnll of Overtaxing a Lit'  ' tie One's Mental Ability.  "Speaking ��������� about, precocious children,"  said a resident of North Indianapolis a  few evenings ago, "reminds me of an incident which occurred about three years  ago in this locality. The family iu question lived in a beautiful cottage home on  Clifton street. The parents were well educated, and they had three cliildi-en���������  two boys and a girl. The boys w������ie:rather slow, ns the world would. term it, in  (their mental capacity, while the |-irl was  unusually bright and precocious in ,her  nature. The parents were very proud of  her nnd taught her easy verses and stories which she would repeat nt the request of her mother's frieudsi who wondered at-her brilliancy.  "At lust the mother thought if she  could teach her to repent /Curfew Shall  Not Ring Tonight' with accuracy and  proper expression she would accomplish  a wonderful feat and her little 3-year-old  tot would be the ndiiiiratiou of tlie entire  city. So sBe set about to accomplish the  tnsk and spent many long and weary  days before the little one could repeat  the poem, n task which is diHicult for one  of mature years and miieb.training' us ud  elocutionist. Finally her d renin was  realized. Her baby, in her childis-h talk  nnd simplicity,, could repent the poem  word for word, nnd in her dimpled hnnds  she would emphasize the strongest passages with the proper gesture.  "One night they gave n party nnd invited their friends. .During the evening the  guests, know.ing the remarkable ability of  the child, nsked her to speak for them.  The mother, anxious to astonish her  guests with her baby's wonderftil metno-  iry, nsked'her to spenk/Curfew Shall Not  Iting Tonight.'  "The child was tired and sleepy,, but  .she heeded her morher's request. She  began the diuictilt task, and when about  half way through she forgot. Her mother helped her outby prompting, and she  continued. finally she hesitated again  aud said:  " '1 tnn't 'member it, mamma.'  "At lust, tired and sleepy,, she sank  down "on the floor-'and fell asleep. The  mother carried her to her bed mid stingly  tucked the covers about her, but tlie liltle  one was nervous, and" in' a short time  symptoms of brain fever began to develop. All through the night iii her delirium  she would cry out:  '"1 tnn't 'member it, mamma.'  "The fond parents, realizing theirjinls  take, did all-hi their, power to restore the  little .oiie to health again, but it was too  late. The months of weary toil and the  climax of the night were too much for  the childish nature and ability of the  babe, and before dawn she had passed into that peaceful sleep which,,.knows no  waking. .No; it does not pay to tax the  mental ability of a*' child.' beyond. . its  strength."���������Indianapolis Sentinel.

T  XLhe flbtniwQ IRevievp  SATURDAY. MAltCIl10,1900.  STAGNATION VS. PROGRESS.  No one who looks ut the facts square-  lj in (he face can b'elieve that those  who are shouting themselves hoarse  over the retention of the eight-hour  law as it stands are acting either in  the interests of the minora or the country in general���������in short they are standing in thc way' of the advancement oi'  both. As no one asked for it in the  first place, modifications of it now, in  lino with the requirements of the  country, or its suspension altogether,  would not bo doing any one out of a  right or privilege to which he was for  any substantial reason entitled.  Again it is now evident to those who  read the signs of the times, and is absolutely assured to those who know the  facts, that mining in tlie Kootenay  will not be general until thc law is  either repealed or so modified as to relieve the parties interested from its  binding shackles. A lew of the most  unreasoning men, who are now working, a few others who expect work and  the Agitators, fur a purpose, mny insist  on tho retention of thc law ns it stands;  but that should not make a policy for  a progressive government that wants  to sec the country grow and develop.  We suppose it is a low estimate  to  say   that if all the   properties of the  country were in  full operation, there  should be, one way nnd the other, from  8,000   to   10,000 men   employed,   and  there are not more than one-quarter of  the number under present conditions;  and   there is absolute assurance that  the number will not be materially increased until the law is changed.   Is it  then in the interest of the country���������it  is in   the interest of thc miners themselves   as  a  body the   change should  be made?   We ask  those prints  that  are   vehemently denouncing   interfer-  ence,if it is in the interest of either the  men or thc country that mining operations should be allowed  to drag along  for the next five years   as they have  dragged for tho past 10 months?   We  arc  not a   prophet nor   the son   of a  prophet,   but we ssty, for we  know it,  operations will be little better than  they are for thc next five years at least  unless   the   desired   changes   in   the  eight-hour law arc made?   For local  or personal reasons  a mine here  and  there will pick up at times, but others  again will lessen their staff,  and so on  will tho operations be conducted until  the changes are made.  It is now proven beyond 11 doubt the  eight-hour law has increased the cost  of operations from 15 to 25 per cent.  This fact alone will prevent thc income  of capital and the opening up of low-  grade properties. It will then be only  the bpst of the old properties that will  be worked, and those but indifferently  until the legislature leaves thc owners  and the men free to make their own  arrangements as suits themselves best.  Wc do think that it' the miners knew  that operations would not be materially increased from what they are at  present, they themselves would petition for release. The newspapers then  that are keeping then in the dark on  this subject for thc votes it may bring  in the impending elections, have much  to answer for, and they will find that  out when it is too late to correct past  mistakes. Under any circumstances  there is nothing better in any country  than plenty of work for all the labor  elements and tho freedom of tlie people. A relaxation of conditions of the  eight-hour law and a progressive government to open up tho latent resources would accomplish bath of thojc  end*;, and, as a result, be par excellence  the government fur the people.

It is now in'order for the  gulchite, to   say  whether   or not the  mine owners desire any change in the  eight-hour law.' If he finds they do,  Mr. Wilson's acknowledgement is that  he is prepared to give full consideration to their expressed wishes���������that in  short he will listen  to  the owners as  well as the miners,  weigh  the representations of both fully, and then  act  in the best  interests of   the country,  even if   the  eight-hour   law   goes   to  smithereens.   This is what the public  will fully  understand  from  Mr.  Wilson's letters.   Tho difference between  Mr. Wilson   and   the   Semlin  government is this :   He will look after the  interests of the country;  they looked  after the votes.  this is leading to suspension of operations on every hand. Tho output of  last, year was much less than it ought  to have been, and prospects for this  year are of the gloomiest forecast. All  through the south country towns made  a start last your, promising much, that  are now in 'the bed of despair, and  everywhere there are hundreds of men  out of employment. Business houses  made a commencement last year all  through ' that country that now see  themselves confronted with the most  serious of consequences, and all for  what, to meet a popular demand ? No,  but to make a few votes for a few ambitious politicians. Many of the business men of tho Slocan lost money  last year, and all of them lost a year's  time. All in tho south country expect  to go through tlie ordeal the coming  year, and many will, no doubt,' bo overtaken by more seriou*: results.  It is an absolute certainty that the  coming year will not see the end of il.  all���������as long as the law stands as it is  at present ever recurring troubles are  sure to be the order of thc day.  Even it'it was known to the financial  world that the law was now a fixture,  and that no more changes would occur  to thwart their projects, investments  will be fewer and capital more cautious. It is now known to everyone  with money to invest, that on account  of the increased cost of operation���������  nearly 20 per cent.���������the percentage of  young properties likely to pay under  development is largely reduced, therefore, risky investments will be out of  tho question, and safer ones reduced to  a fraction of what they otherwise  would be. Most of the miners of these  parts have lost a year's work and with  but slender chances for many of them  in the future. Wc again ask the question, has the eight-hour law paid even  the people for whose benefit it was  specially passed ?  HAS IT PAID?  It is now very opportune for provincial journals,and men having the education of the popular wish in their hands,  to take a retrospective view of the  operations of the eight-hour law, and  ask themselves the bald question : Has  it paid ? A little over a year ago the  ������p]jortunities of the country presented  many tempting features to foreign  capitalists, so much so that many large  and important deals, with a consequent  inflow of capital, were on the tapis.  Pew of the deals have gone through,  the promised capital has been turned  away, and mining is to a large extent  practically dead. Comparisons of old  -workings with the new show that operations cost now in the neighborhood of  20 per cent, more than they did before  tke eight-hour law cameinto force, and  A PRINT ON THE RAMPAGE.  Our omnicient neighbor has made  an important discovery. He has found  that Charles Wilson, the named leader  of the Liberal-Conservative party, pro-  vincially, endorses thc Liberal Conservative party's opinion of the eight-  hour law, that is "its principle." lie  also learns that Mr. Wilson says ''he  thinks" he knows what the Paystreak  means, which is more than thc print  itself knows, and would favor the retention of thc law as it stands, "unless  the parties chiefly interested desire  some change or modification." A wonderful discovery this for the 20th oe'nt-  Although  "Fighting Joe," as  usual  the great I am of his faction, could thc  other day announce the policy of his  government, before he had a colleague  selectsd, the grounds on which he will  appeal are  the subject of much curiosity.   It must be said of him that he  is a man of  fair, average ability,  possessing dogged persistence, the vindic-  tiveness of a wasp, and that is all.    He  is characterless  and  without  a record  that, to even him,  can be of any service.   From the fact that   he was   thc  creator of most of Semlin's legislation  oflS99,  his record must be a weight  not only to himself   but   to Semlin's  candidates as well.   Last session, when  Sir Wilfred Laurier was at Washington  endeavoring to secure an adjustment of  several   differences   between   Canada  and   tho   United   Stntes,   Joseph   put  through that   Alien Exclusion Bill to  keep Americans out of the Atlin country  for tbc sole purpose of embarrassing the Federal premier and making  his mission come to naught for a punishment for excluding   him  (Martin)  from the Federal cabinet when formed  in 1S96. 'At  the session just closed he  was a party to repealing that very enactment, under advice-from the minister of justice.   Its passage in the first  place got  a degree of satisfaction for  Joeseph,  although it cost the country  thc loss of much capital and development.     Had   the   session just   closed  continued- to any  length   it is   more  than likely   that half the acts of last  session, which, when passed,  were the  glory   of   Martin   and   his   then   colleagues, would be repealed and a show  of amendments  and other subterfuges  substituted in their stead.   As we can  see things Joseph has not even a bass-  wood leg to stand on, but we must see  more of  his hand before we can say  much about it.  Figure   it   for   yourself.

Ky.  "My periods occurred too often and the hem-  'orrhage would be prolonged and the loss of  blood very excessive. I also had spells which  the doctor said were fainting fits. I did uot  gain strength from one monthly period to  another; was very weak and nervous nil the  time. Was confined to my bed for three  mouth3 and the doctor told me I would never  be any better. I lived in this way from sixteen years old to twenty-three. I was at last  advised by a kind friend to try Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription, which I did, and before I had taken two bottles of it I could  work all day. I took in all six bottles of the  ' Favorite Prescription' and about five vials  of Dr. Pierce's Pellets. I used no other  medicine. I have never had a return of this  trouble since."

In referring to tho eight-hour law the  Silvertonian says : "Mr. Green has lost  money and  friends by^doing his duty  to his constituents."   Let us  look at  this.   Mr. Green may have lost money,  but we don't think he has lost friends  on  personal grounds,  though  he  has  lost political cast;  but it is debatable  whether or not in doing "his duty to  his constituents."   In  the first place,  Mr. Green, in voting against the Bill in  committee,   felt that it  was his  duty  to his constituents to oppose the eight-  hour law.   In his letter to the government in March last, he said he never  was asked by   his.constituenta to give  such a law, and in that letter he ac-  knowleaged   unquestionable   grounds  for voting against it in committee.   In  a later letter   to tho   government  lie  asked them not  to enforce  the act as  its enforcement would do great injury  to the country.   If in these acknowledgements  he was doing his dtity to  his constituents, liow could -he   have  been doing itin  voting for it in  the  third reading ?   This is what we would  like to see tbc Silvertonian . explain.  To be more.particular, if it was in the  interest  of   his   constituents the Bill  should have been thrown out in committee,   if, again,   he was   doing his  duty in asking for the non-enforcement  of  the act after it   was passed,   how  could it, having the same constituents,  be serviceable in voting for the Bill on  the third reading ?   ^Would it not have  been more consistent and in line with  public service to either have supported  or opposed! the Bill throughout ?

London, March 6.���������A dispatch to the  Standard from Osfontcin dated Sunday,  March  4, says:   "Lord Roberts' army  now occupies a most advantageous no-  sition.

Some  eighteen months  ago Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes dismissed a government  of whose strength  he simply had no  . knowledge, and called on one Beavan,  without   a seat   or   following   in   the  country, simply because he know���������and  doubtless   before   hand���������that  Beavan  would   take   enro   of his   son.     That  .fiasco ended  in a disaster.   Arow again  he calls on "Fighting Joe" with a scat  but without a following,   because Joe  promises to do what  Bearan was  unable to do.   Joe next calls on his own  brother-in-law,' Smith-Curtiss, to join  .them.   It appears that God made this  little province simply as a nest for thc  Martins and Mclrineses.   Then again  Mclnnes comes down  to prorogue the  House.

"������������������1.I ./  CHAPTER III.���������Continued.  It wxu3 six o'clock before Gerald Dor-  mam presented himself in tho oharac-  tetr of on invited guest in the druw-  Ing-froorh. He looked with some, curiosity for Miss Ne&lie's entrance. How.  would she receive tho coming inler-  loitetr, the young wife who wis in great  nieusuiro to wrest her kingdom from  heir.  She ctiine in soon afturward; and  though he had seen her often in the  ntrilliancy, of evening toilet he was  stuartlcd: She looked older, more dignified ; more stuteily; she looked far  more like the wife of the ''master of  the house than his daughteir. It waa  such a strange toilet, too���������all black,  with gleaming diamonds ��������� throwing  out the; loveliest of lights���������a dress of  rich black lace ; the fJerfeet curves of  heir shouldei-H tuiid arms wore shown to  perfection, the white neck looked the  httrer for the contrast. A diamond  itia.r shone in the colls of .silken hair;  l diamond cross glittered on the  white breast. Sho had evidently chos-  Bn a toilet that would add to her ago  ind dignity; she had tried to look  older instetad of younger and she had  succeeded. The lovely Southern face  hud lost none of it color; the dainty  rose-leaf flush was on her cheeks, the  rich crimson on her lips. He h������d looked'<xn many fair women, but none so  flair as this daughteir oil the iNeslies.  She did not spends when she .entered  the room ; she looked at him with calm,  graceful indifference���������it was not often thnt she seemed to tako any spe  " how well you are looking-. Have'you  no  word  for  me^"  She did not clasp her arms roundhis  nieck, nfter the old; impulsive fashion,  nor did she raise her beautiful face  to kiss him-; and Sir Arthur folt that  it wns the beginning of hostilities.  Slie held out her hand to hiim.  " Welcome homo, papa," she said,  'briefly.  " Thunk you, Vivien. And now, my  do'rling, I want you to welcome some,  one eJse���������I want you to welcome my  beloved wife.'"  If it hnd been to save hor life, Vivien could not have smiled, oould not  have uttered a kindly word. She made  a stiff, formal courtesy, and there  wns a moment of painful silence.  Again Gerald saw the baronot's face  darkening���������again the soft, cooing  voice seemed to break the spell- Sir  Arthur's wife held out hor hand .to  Sir Arthur's 'daughter.  " The greatest pleasure I had in  coming to Lanoowood waa the hope  that you would love me."  "You ntre'very good," said'Vivien,  coldly  ' Good���������nay,"    opposed    the   sweot  voice, " I do not know lha.t I am good. Iwill  Ah,   that  is  an  Engilish  idiom !_ They iyour wife bolter than your daugbler���������  "True, and I love you now; but  that did not prevent my loving Valerie.     Wait until you know her."  "It will make no difference ,papa.  You cannot expect met to love a igirl  whom you have put in my mother's  place. Have you forgotten my mother that you bring this Blranger  hero ?"  "No, I havel not forgotten your mother, Vivien ; but a man cannot always  ke������x> hia heart buried in a grave, lhavo  mourned iruly enough for her. You.  ought rather to be pleased that I have  found some one to brighten my Hie.'  "1 brightened your lilo," she said,  with jealous pain. ��������� "Oh, papa, you  were all the world to met: No ono  will i:v<j you as 1 did.T had no thought  but you ; and nov/i you have brought  a.stranger to stand between us.' How  could you J"  Tears ,rose to the dark, beautiful  eyes.  "I loved you so much, dear," she repealed.' '"How could you bring hor  heref"  He was more troubled than he cared  to own���������his voice trembled, his hands  shook.  "Come.,Vivien, you disappoint me. I  cbought you would hav������ been .,more  generous���������I' thought you , would welcome my wife."  "Our happy    life is   all over," sho  said.     "You may think you will love  rnei as' much, but it will never bi< tho  same again, papa���������never again.    She  ���������be   between us.  :,:You will love  aire hard to understand. If wishing  for love makes one good, then am I  good."  A smile, almost of contempt, curled  Vivien's lips, as she saw her' father  looking with Tapt devotion at his new  -.wife.  " As though words meant anything!"  thought Miss Neslie. " Hers are sweet  *   ^tllT^rlvT*^^**?0**-  W   ^   very   sound   of  her  bow ; she took up a book and sat down  'by the open window  " How prroud   she is 1"  he thought.

" They are earlier than I expected,"  was  th-a calm reply.  She did not lay her hook down or  make any sign af disturbing herself.  Gerald trembled with excitement and  igitation.  " Miss Neslio, are you not going  lown in the hail '( Sir Arthur ;will expect it, I-���������:"  " Prny, do not trouble yourself, Mr  Dou-man; 1" am not g-odng down into  the hall. You can, of course, please  fours<'lf."  He wont���������more to save her than gratify himself���������and he owned that it was  i sight well worth seeing���������the grand  mtrance hall, 'with' its miosaio pavc-  "oenl, its gre-at stands o������ flowers and  urange trees, the wealth of. antiiiuities  Ihat decorated the walls, the longline  tf domestics, all standing to welcome  the bride. He saw Sir Arthur, tall  ind stately, with a pleased, bright ex-  ptression on his .���������lace, leading by tho  sand a lady whose features he could  not see, for she wore a. vail; but her  Eigure wns the very perfection of  grace. Sir Arthur held her hand in  his, nnd in a few ��������� well-chosen woirds  introduced her to his dependents us  their future mistress, L".idy Neslie.  Then, seeing.. Genalld, he held out his  hand,   with   a frank,  kindly  smile.  " I am glad to.see you, Mr. Dbrman.  We have had quite a royal reception,  such a welcome home as we shall never .forget.   1  have been quite touched  ���������"by it.   Where  is Miss Neslio?"  There was a moment of blank sil-  ence^���������of silence inexpressibly painful  ���������������nd every ono felt it to be so. Where  w*.is she who had always hurried to  meet him, who hud been wont to fling  her arms round his neck, regardless  of who wns present, and give him  fruch a rapturous .welcome home ? Sir  Arthur, looked around,1 but the fair  . ftiKc of his daughter. ,was not there.  Genitld hastened to reply:  " Miss Neslie is in the dnarwing-rooro  Sir Arthur; she awaits you there."  He: simv. a sudden darkening of the  baronet's face, but just'then a sweet,  lingering voice, 'said���������  "How charming, Arthur! Are all  English rnunsions  like  this ?"  The voice wns sweet and clear, the  accent pretty and piquant after tho  Cushion of French ladies who speak  English well. It seemed to liiti.ve a.  mrigicoJ charm for Sir Arthur; hie  lace cleared  and' his  eyes brightened.  voice is false.  Sir Arthur turned to his daughter.  " I venture to promiise for you, Vivien, that you will soon love Lady  Neslie���������no one can holp it. Valerie, you  will like to go to your apartments.  Perhaps, Vivien, you "  " Has Lady Neslie a maid?" she asked,   quickly.  " Yes," replied Sir Arthur.  "Then she had hotter go with her.  I will speak to you, papa."  VJHAPTEK  IV.  Lady Naslie left the drawing-room,  and, with her maid and the housekeeper, soon found herself in thein-ig-  nificent rooms appointed for. her. She  listened to Mrs. Spenser's explanations, "and then courteously dismissed  her.  "This is very good, .Marie," she said  to her maid, when they were alone.  " I never thought to find Lauocwood  so grand. It is a palace; I have seen  nothing like it."  "ft is 'none too good Tot miladi,"  observed the girl; "and I wish you,  miladi,   yeairs   of  happiness   in  it."  " I shall be happy enough," said itho  bride; "plenty, of money .always  makes one happy. Marie, find me the  prettiest dress I hove. ,; This young  kidy, Sir Arthur's daughter, is stately,  and beautiful as a princess; I feel  quite pLuin and insignificant by her  sid'3. h'ind ene something very nice,  thai. 1 may surpitis her."  " She cannot be more beautiful than  mikidi," declared tlie girl flatteringly-  "Yes, she its. You do not ���������' understand. She has the face of a princess;  she has the manner a* a princess ; she  speuks'line one. Find me my prettiest  dress and my rarest jewels. She shall  not surpass me."  " But, miladi, is it good tasle���������jewels  and a courtly costume for thus dinner en Iamiile ? 1 think not.. My late  in.islness, ine Duchess of Ifitzourgh,  neveir mude a very elaborate, toilet for  dinuor with her own fiamily."  "Of course you. know, best," said  Lady Neslie, impatiently. " 1 wish  there had. never been a Duchess of  Eitzburgh; she is always being quoted  against me. . Have your own way, Marie."  "No, miladi���������you*? way, not mine. If  your ladyship will trust to ine," your  loilet shall be such as Sir. Arthur's  daughter cannot help admiring."  There wan. a strange familiarity between "miladi" and her maid when  ihey twerc together alone. When  La>iiy Neslie was impatient, Marie gave  hei' plenty of sound advice, always  quoting, as a last resort, the Duchess of . Eitzburgh. Lett to herself,  Lady Neslie would havo chosen some  elaborate    costume;  she,   would  have  you will study her, not me���������you will  think of her���������nonsuit her wishes, not  mine; she will be ' misiress here, not  I."  "Yes, that is true, Vivien; she is any  wife,, and she must be mistress. I am  glad you have tho good sense'to recognize that."  "Your very kindness in the years  gone past' has been an injury to me,"  said Vivian.; "You rnado me mistress  of your house'when I'.Avaa but a child  ���������(he habit of rule has grown with me  ���������and now. you ask me to give tip tho  auLhority of years to a girl not older i.han my.self. It is not just, papa."  "I never thought of marrying again,  Vivi.!ii���������no.hing was ever fart bar .rom  my thoughts."  "Thftn why did you marry,, papa ?"  she asked, reproachfully. ,  "Well, you see, my dear, I really  could not- help it. I fell in love with  Valerie, that's', the plain truth���������nothing more nor less. I was happy with  her,, unhappy when away from her.  |So I determined to try to be always  'happy. I asked'hen* to marry me, and  she consented.���������,.. Now that it is done,  Vivien, try to make all things pleasant���������try to love her."  "I s.upp;isa I must tolerate her," said  Miss Neslio. "As for loving her, a  pretty face would never bewitcii. me.  I shall never love her, if only because  ���������>ha has Laken my mother's place."  "That is (hot a fair view of the matter," observed Sir Arthur. "Remember,  Vivien, sho has taken a vacant place.  Your mother's, alas;! is empty I"  "I know it, and, papii, I cannot love  the ono who would fill it. Do : not  think ine wicked. I am jealous for my  mother���������my darling mother.

Her padsionatei words startled luim.  "Hush, Vivieai!" hie said. "It is all  too late. I���������I did'not think of. these  things, my d*arr. Show your love for  mo by; being kind lo my wife."  "1 will show my love for my mother  by preventing any one from ever taking her place," was the abrupt "reply.  "Vivien, try to like my wife. She  is young���������try to make her happy. Ah,  there is the first dinner-bell," con-  linuBd'Sir Arthur, thankful for The interruption, " and I am not dressed !  You,will Iry to amus������ Valerie, will  you not, when she conies down? I  may as well say, while we are on tho  subject, thai, as slia is socyoung, it  would bo absurd for you to call her  anything except Valerie."  She laughed, scornfully.  ."Did you ever imagine, papa, that I  should oall that: girl mamma?"  His face flushed hotiyt at the contempt in her voice, but ho made no answer; and the next moment Vivien  wa.s alone���������alone with her impotent  wrath, her woundod love, her heart-,  ache^���������alone with sorrow that tore her  "I leav������ it entirely to you,"' Vivien replied. With all hex burning  jealousy and angry disdain, bar outraged pride and love, she" oould not  quite forget  her good   breeding.  "1 told Sir, Arthur very often that I  wias quicei suie I should be dreadfully  jealous of his charming Vivien," continued Lady Neslie, "and now I see  quii.e enough to make me so."  The grave'bow that was her only an-  s-wer did not daunt her.  "You look very grav's, Vivien���������see, 1  avail myself ol your permission. Gravity seems to be the pervading characteristic of the English. In Eranoe every one smiles, looks pleased, interested, happy ; here the people are all melancholy, serious, grave. I must leach  you to laugh, Vivien."  "She is positively audacious,"  thought Gerald to himself, and then  he came to the rescue. 'He drew near  to Lady Neslio with' a photograph of  the Abbey in his hand. While he was  showing it to har, .Vivien, walked  away to ' tho other end of the room.  Lady Neslie looked after her with a  peculiar smile, and Lhen she turned to  the secretary.  "Do you know how to laugh, Mr.  Dorman, or do you, require lessons in  lhai charmi.ig art ? "  "When you have been with us a little longer, Lady Nellie, you will find  Ihat tha English laugh quite as heartily in England as the Erench do in  ���������I' ranee."  "There is one thing that will puzzle me in England," said her ladyship,  with a smile, that showed all "her pfef-  ty teeth. u  "What is that?" asked.

And for that one speech more than  for anything else Gerald Dorman disliked and mistrusted her.  (To be contiuued.)

It is 'in. the form of  an inscribed brick, and is therefore  not only the oldest, but also thet most  substantial love letter in  existence.  The first silver wedding, dates baok  to tho time of Hugh Capet. Two servants had grown gray in his service,  a man and a woman, and[ what could  he give them as a reward?. Calling  the woman he said: "Your service is  great enough, for iho woman; always  tiuds work harder than a man, and,  therefore, 1 will give you a reward.  At your age I kiio,w ofi uone joetter  than a do/wry and a huhband,! .The  dowry is here���������this farm from - this  lime forth beiongs to you.

"Your Ma���������e���������ly," said the old servant,  "how is it pobsible that we (Should  marry, having already silver hairs?'  "Thou- it shall be a;silver' wedding/'  arudi the King gave the couple silver  enough to keep thorm in plenty. This  soonl became,.knoiwn all over Franco,'  and iti became a fashion after twenty-  tive. yearsi of married life tot celebrate  a silver, wedding.  The practice of I he) wife's assuming  the hu.iba.ca s. namo at. marriage is; a  iioma.n custom- Julia married to  Pompey. became Julia of Pompey. In  latter, limes married women, signed  their names in the'same manner, (but  omitted Ihe "of". In Iceland;, the, opposite has been : Iho, custom. ..There  the husband assumes'the wife's name.  The word wedding is derived troin  the .wed or security which the Anglo-  Saxon bridegroom gave a't espousals  tor the due performance of his contract. This wed was-hold by uuslees,  and/ in addition to it -the (bridegroom  wore: an espousal ring. As, for, the  wedding ring, it wa.si first designed by  Prometheus, according to tradition,  a.nd fashioned out of adamant and iron  by Tubal Cain, and was given by Adam  to his' son to this end, (that ho'therewith   should   espouse   a wife.  The wedding-coke is the remains .of  u custom whereby a Roman bride  held, in her leift handi three wheat  ears, and many centuries later, an  linglish bride wore a chaplet of wheat.  The bridesmaids threw grains .of corn  or small bits of cake upon the heads of  the newly married and the guests picked up the pieces anrlate them. The  wedding, cake did nof( come into .general use until tho last century and  was ��������� then composed of solid blocks  laid togeilier, iced all over,' so that  when the outer crust' was broken over  the bride's head, the cakes unsidei fell  on (.he floor and wore' distributed  among the guests. Bridal favors are  of purely Danish origin. The true  lover's knot was first desigmod by  Danish hearts and derived, i.ts designation from tho Danish 'truolofa���������"I  plight my troth."  The throwing of tho slipper comes.  from' tho custom oif the! bride, of the  father giving a shoe i.q the! new. husband in token Of transference of power  over her, the bridegraom lightly, tap-  pi iug the bride's head with it.  The best man is a survivor of the  band of friends whioi accompanied the  suitor in his wite-winning and\ kept  watch' for him pr-'ei' tho bride's tribe,  while the, lover sought.the opportuini-  ty to f:arry off his prize. The. ihoiuey-  moon journey is the, hurried flight of  thi< husband with his wife to escape  the vwigeanco of the pursuing tribe.  The presents given the bridesmaids  amd . ushers are simply a, relio of' the  bridegroom among hi.-i personal friends  so that they would, assist in the capture of his chosen; bride when- the day  arrived' on .which he had determined  to carry her off. In the/ fifteenth  century, a-bride���������it one ���������ofi the aristocracy���������often received twenty ringa  from' her (relatives -and six fromi tho  brideig.rororn���������two when he became in-  tciestod. in her, twot foil the espousal  and two. when they'were married.

Miss  Alinn   Gauthietr,  daughter    otf  Mr. Adelard Gauthier, proprietor of a  ���������well   known   hotel   at   Three    Rivers, .  Que., enjoys a wide popularity among  her young friends, and  they have recently hnd occasion to rejoice at her  restoration  to  health after, a serious  illness.' When   a   reporter    called   to  "scertain the facts of   the case  Miss  G������uthier was out of tho city on avis-  it, but her father very gladily consented to give the story of hor cure,     lie  said:���������"I believe that had it not been  for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills my daup-h.-  torAlmai might now have been in her  grave, nnd  I woulld be ungrateful indeed  if I did not  at all  times say   a  kiind  fivord   in favor  of  the  medicino  that restored her to health. My daughter's  health  first  becan   to give way  several, years ago.   At first the trouble did not app<jar to De serious; and  wa thought sho woufd soon regain her  accustomed nealth.   As tho time-went  on, however, this proved not to be tho  cose.    She gTe.w weaker, was troubled  _with   headaches,  poor  appetite,  dizzi-  hess~and a feeling of almost constant  languor.    She (was  treated  by  a good  doctor,' but still there was no improvement.   She  seemed    to    be  gradually  fading    away.   * If    she   walked     up  stairs she would have to. stop several  times  to rest  on   the ivniy.   She  lost  all  her  color and  hBr face    was    aB  white almost as chalk.      Her   trouble  was  clearly     Ihat    which_ afflicts  so  many young women entering woman-  ���������  hood, and we feared il would develop  inlo consumption.     Ono day a friend  of    the family urged, her to try    Dr.  Williams'  Pink Tills,    and  she   consented,    and    procured    a couple    of  boxes.   iKcfore   they  were  quite  gone  there  was    a slight improvement    in  her appetite and  we looked  upon thi������  as a hopeful sign. Anolher halt'dozen  boxes wero procured, and under their  use sho day  by    day    acquired    novv,  strength and new, interest in life.

It is a common sight to see  some of these negroes entering the  Kiihberley stores; one will have" a  single egg in his hand, another will  have a quarter of a peck of mealee  corn. The negro with tho,egg is as  serious and as much concerned concerning (he sale of his single egg as-  if the .transaction^amounted to thousands of dollars.  The peculiar trade is carried on  somewhat after this "fashion: "How  much Bass give for this?" asks the negro, as ho holds' out the. egg in his  hand to the storekeeper. Sometimes  the proprietor offers him two cents  for it.; but it eggs are scarce:the negro  may get ull the way from 5 to 10 cents  for-his egg. ���������: ���������'',;". /..--  Very often the small amount that  the native receives goes for a drink  of "Capo Smoke," which is the worst  kind of brandyi a person can drink. To  the 'storekeeper of Kimberley, however,' this trade of a singlet egg and a  quarter/of a peck?, of mealee amounts'  to, a great deal during the day, as hundreds of natives seirtheir products in  the. same fashion.    ���������  '.....���������'���������'  SHE COULDN'T TELL  A  LIE.

Thay are lamous  for having .irst given sufferers    from  Brigh.'s Disease and Diabetes  a  road  lo safely, for previous  lo  tho discovery of Dodd's Kidney Pills  these dis-  tajes were invariably fatal-  Michael   (Hallern, a    farmer    living  near Si. Thomas, is one of those who  tfully appreciate the worth ol Dodd'a  Kidney Pilli.     He has good reason to.  He Wiii cured of Diabetes by their use.  He admits that but for Dodd's Kidney  Pills he would be in his grave to-day.  Djabeles is a local disease, of thin kid-  aeys.     Dodd'a Kidney Pills are I here-  Eore the only-medicine o..f the slightest uso in the  treatment  of  this dis-  wtse.      Tho kidneys  are  the only or-  irans affected, and Dodd's Kidney Pills'  are Iho only medicine that can reach  the kidneys with any beneficial effoct.  There    are    moreover    a number of  other diseases which are    caused    by  disorder of the  .kidneys   and Dodd's  Kidney Pills by curing (lie kidney disorder  removes "the   .cause    of    those  other     troublos. Thus il is    that  Dodd's Kidney Pills are the only  radical and permanont .euro for  Dropsy, Heart Diseasu, Bhoumatism,  Lumbago, Sciatica, Bladder and Urinary Complaints, Female Disorders and  unhealthy condition of the blood.  As. for Diabetes the .statement  M'gnod by Mr. Mishiael Hallern", of St.  Thomas, and witnessed by Mr. E. E.  faivorablo sign is that this increase  was much more marked during the  earlier part of the period, tho growth  being considerably less during the  last few; years. '  The population tables show, that  the urban municipalities continue to  grow aiti'th'ei expense of the rural sec-  lions. The township population was  1,148,850* ������jI tho beginning of the per-'  iod under consider-alion, und largely  owing t o the emigration to the North-  West, h'aid fallen to 1,000,981 in 18S3,  since which time there has been a  slight increase. In 18S8 the population of the townships numbered 1,110,-  891. Mean-while Lhe cities have increased their numbers from 319,034 to  440,889, and the'population of towns  and villages 'together has grown from  SG0.005 to 449.5G7.  Township vaJual ions have changed  but lit tie. The figures stood at. $452,-  097,045 in! 1880, and S4'18,810,OGO in l.-0-i.  City valuations have increased from  ?154,201,Sai to ?:'3"1077,37C, and the as-  scssmenls of, towns and villages from  $88,078,013 to *3X2'J,297,397.  T.lw������ increase1 in the debentures debt  has been entirely in the liabilities. The  volume of city debts hlia risen from  ���������?18,469,893 lo ������37,840,377, and that of  thle. towns and villaigios has also more  than doubled. County debenture  debts, however, have s'eidily decreased  from ������3,505,744 to ������1,808,107, and township inrliobtedness also shows a slight  diminution.  La Tosaana, 10c.

Sickness Banished���������Health Restored  Gentlemen,���������Dr.  Ward's    Blood  and  Nerve Pills    have done my    sister so  much good that in grateful appreciation I   told Mr. Tuliy, the druggist, I  would gladly give   a   .testimonial unsolicited,    as    to    their merits.   ' My  ������ister,  15 years of age, caughl a violent cold���������since then she has been in  very poor health, lost all colour     was  anemic, her blood had no vitality, and  she had no physical strength, she became extremely nervous, so inucht   so  thai she could not stand any exertion  or  excitement,  and it was impossible  for hor  to got restful sleep, she "lost  bar appetite,   hor heart became    very  weak,  palpitating  so    violently    that  she could hardly breathe at the slightest exertion.      When she commenced  taking   Dr. Ward's   Blood   and Nervo  Pills  two  months  ago she  was  in   a  state of complete physical and nervous  prostration.     Her   blood   was scanty  with no more strength    than    water.  Since  taking Dr. Ward's   Blood    and  Nerve Pills she has been rapidly mending,  her    appetite    has returned, she  sleeps   well  her  nerves   are  stronger,  and her heart gained strength so that  it is able lo fulfill its functions. Prior  to taking Dr. Ward's   Pills   she   had  taken  many  medicines    without    any  special benefit. Dr. Ward's Blood and  Nerve Pills    are    certainly    the only  medicine that has done any  good. Before taking    them she    was    getting  I weaker,  1 er  heart  and nerves losing  strength daily.     Since she had began  taking them she has   daily    and continuously gained health and strength.  ,                     CLARA ELLIOTT,  j   |,   |   ,'   |             30 College street.

(,  MOUNTAIN  ECHOES.  The Vancouver Liberals must have  strong stoin.ichs when tbey sw.illowcd  Manitoba's Jonah.  The annual mooting of the C.imor-  onian Mining Co. will be liclil in this  city on the 24th inst.  Thc Nelson Minstrels are advertisod  for Sandon on Tuesday owning next,  in aid of the Patriotic Fund.  Tho curlers ended up their little lion-  spiel with a very successful ball in the  Virginia halt, Thuroday evening.  Jt is not true,   as   some   interested  parties report, that some of the Minnesota men   at   the Payne have quit  ' work.  Word has reached the city that Hugh  Magce, late of the Star hotel hero, died  in H[joknno from thc eil'ects of blood-  poisoning setting in after vaccination.  The government of B. C. is now made  'up of the Martins and thc swallow-,���������  Mclnnes swallows nil he cm got hold  of foi his family. It is a very feathery  combination.  It.is reported that Mr. Williamson is  going io resign his position ns manager  of tlie Slocm telephone system, lie  has been a faithful servant and a most  diligent officer. ,  One of the Pearson Bros., who tiied  to run tho music hail, has bought a  halt' interest in the Klondike notol  with Mr. Nelson, and the new firm are  now readv for business.  The Miners' Uunion will hold a St.  Patrick's dance in Virginia hall, on  Friday evening. March 10.  T.

'  Our curlers report, that tho Nelson  nndjiossliind curlers never even answered their letters inviting them to  take part in the bonspiel here. Have  the sports of tho������e towns had enough  of Sandon metul, oi have they no sense  of courtesy and fair play ?  PERSONAL   MENTION.  Laxa-Liver Pills are easy acting, noii-  iritating and purely vegetable. They  are the most effective remedy known  for constipation, dyspepsia, biliousness  and sick headache.   Price 25c.  f  Back in the history of Upper Canada  Governor Metcalf once said, "Me and  my government." Mclnnes can say  the same thing of himself, his son, Joe  Martin and his brother-in-law.  _A revision of the voters' list of this  district is announced for the 7th of  May, which means that the 7th of  April is thc last day for going on the  list or lor giving notice to strike ofi.  Mr. Green, M.P.P., was in the city  Tuesday evening on his way home  from Victoria. He has doubts whether'  ' or not Joe will be able to form a cabinet. In any event young Mclnnes is  not likely to join until he sees Martin  has some strength.  It now looks as if the banks were  going to take a hand in this eight-hour  trouble. They know well that commercial interests cannot prosper with  things as they are, and are likely to  curtail or cut off advances and discounts until some arrangements are  made for the resumption of business.  Every day new miners arc coming  into Sandon in twos threes and larger  bodies lroin Ontario, Nova Scotia, etc.  and taking positions on local properties. Many ilobslanders are>employed  also. It is quite evident lrom appearances the owners a**e resolved on having no more such sceances as took  place at thc Payne tram.  Win. Walmsley has purchased the  Filbert hotel, and is now fitting it up  in first class style. When Thos. Milne  gets through with the painting and  paper-hanging all the apartments, including a spacious dining-room, will be  equal to the best in the country. Mr.  Thatcher, ''Uncle Joe," is to have the  management of the house.  On Saturday evening last the Miners'  Union held their annual election of  officers. The following is the new roll  of officers: President, Geo. Smith ���������  vice-president, li. J. McLean; rec, sec,  W. Donahue ; iin. sec, W. L. Hagler ;  treas., J. B.

Another distressing accident occurred  some time tins week, resulting in the  loss ol life. A Mr. Boecher, brother of  the conductor on thc K. &���������*>., was working alone on a property up the south  fork ol Kaslo creek, when, by some  means a mass of rock crashed down  upon him. When found it was supposed the accident had occurred two or  three days previously. Interment took  place at Kaslo on Thursday.  It is very hard to get the Nelson  Tribune to understand that it is the  commercial interests and the proper  development ol the country for which  sensible journalists should have the  highest regard. Then what is going to  best encourage these, the shutting up  oi' the minus to give the miners an  eight-hour day and no work, or the  opening of them with'a longer day hl'1  the best wages in the world"? That's  the way business men should look at  the situation.  The Kootenaian must not have much  to do when it  heads an article  on the  late hockey match in Kaslo "Kaslo the  Champions."    In.   the   first  place,   it  knew trie match was not for the championship���������only n.  lriendiy one���������as the  riandons are   but a junior club,  with  average age not more than 19   against  probably 25 in thc Kaslo team.   Surely  the Kootenaian would not call that an  equal contest.   Jf, however, it is bound  to. make   Kaslo  seniors   and   Sandon  juniors competitors, let it include the  match played here on Saturday night  last, and we will be satisfied.    We believe the   Sandon boys are   O. K., but  they are not ready to compete against  the world.  ,.     NOTICE.
