Notice is hereby given that all unpaid taxes  for the ''orporation of the City of Sandon must  he paid on or before June 20th, 1901, after that  date all overdue taxes will be placed in court  for collection.  W.H. LILLY, Collector.  P. J. Hickey has returned from an extended trip south and west.  Joe Stoeker has bought his partner's  interest out in the Miners'hotel restaurant. .   ��������� t ���������  Now write it Mayor Lovatt, the squire  was elected by acclamation  on Monday.  Mrs. Gordon is shortly "to remoye to  Bruce Mines where her husband is now  employed.  Win.' Walmsley, .of. the Filbert, has  gone on a pleasure trip to, the Similkameen district.  Little Marshall Barton entertained a  i number of his littlefriends with a social  tea on Tuesday afternoon. '   '  Thelhree.months' old child of Mr. D.  Craig, of Three Forlcs, died on Wednesday and was buried the next day.  The annual meeting of the Western  Federation of Miners'will take place at  Denver, Colo., on Monday, May 27th.  Most of the machinists in all theinan-  ufacturing' cities of the United States  are striking for a nine hour day and ten  hours pay.  Mr. G. B. McDonald thinks there is  more than one thing Noble up at Cody���������  a 10 pound sou and heir is at least  another noble institution.  Mr. ' Ransom returned on Tuesday  evening, bringing with him his wife  and family. They will take up their  residence, it' is likely, in this citvor  Cody.'  Fred Collins, who shot A. Dando dead  at Peterborough, B.C., was sentenced to  erection  be hanged at Nelson on'July 20.   Dando  was a barber and lived in Sandon a few  years ago. '  The C. P. R.

Hunter is here from Phoenix  taking charge at the store again for a  few days until his successor arrives.  Mr. Creech, (vho has been a general favorite in the store for some years, is going to. remove to the town of Crow's  Nest, near Blairmorc, whore he enters  the employ of a large nYm there. .-'  '  Frank McLcod, a blacksmith, was run  over by a train on the Spokane Falls &  Northern Railroad near Nelson, Monday  morning, and was almost instantly  killed.. The deceased at one time had a  blacksmith shop in Sandon for a couple  of years.   He was a well respected man.  While south some days ago Mr. P. J.  Mickey , attended the" funeral of his  mother-in-law, who died very suddenly  of heart failure, in the -50th year of her  age. She had not boon in the best ol  health for some time before, but  there was nothing to indicate anv serious contfaquenees. In short, up" to a  few minutes before her death she was  chatting and laughing frcelv with all  the members of her'household. Her  death then became the greater shock to  all her friends and acquaintances.  ^On Tuesday morning George Mc-  Lellan tried to commit suicide at the  city jail. It appears he had been sick  for four or five days and had .not slept  any night during that time, and as he  was acting rather strangelv. The police  hearing of it, removed him to the  police station for safe keeping and  medical 'treatment. Shortly after the  electric lights went out last Tuesday  morning he went to his clothes, got  his pocket knife and cut his throat, but  did not touch the jugular vein, which  saved his life. He is now in the  hospital. George McLellan is a highly  respected citizen, and an act of this  kind is a surpise to all'who know him.  The R. E.Xee has closed down.  Today is a bank holiday and the local  office will be closed until' Monday.  The Emerald duet gave two very good  entertainments in the city Sunday and  Monday last.  The Rev. A. M. Sanford will preach  his farewell sermon in the'Methodist  church tomorrow.  R. F. Green, M. P. P., came in from  Victoria on Friday night last, and spent  part of Saturday calling on friends.  Bruce White, of Nel������on,.and Alexander Sharp, M. E., of Rossland, were in  the city. Both gentlemen were at the  Star.  Ex-mayor Pitts and Cliff Seale left oh  Sunday for a trip over the Similkameen  country. They will be gone' at least  three weeks.  J. D. McLachlan and C. Culver, delegates from the Sandon lodge, attended  the Knights of Phythias convention at  Revelstoke last week.'  And now the stevedores are at it. All  of them on the Pacific coast talk of forming a union and advancing wages from  40 to GO cents per hour.  Alex. Lucas, provincial organizer' for  Liberal Conservative association of British Columbia, has been appointed  mining recorder at Kaslo.  Two appointments were made bj' tbe  council Thursday evening, giving Neil  Mclnnis the chiefship of police and fire  dept., and Robt. Jalland a council seat.  J.'M. Harris left for his Virginia home  on Tuesday. On his return it is generally understood he will commence the  of his "power house at Three  Forks.  The bill to give a bounty to a silver-  lead refinery has passed the first and  second readings at Ottawa without  opposition, and will doubtless become  law at once. i  After we had gone to press Friday  last week, P. L. Morgan was brought in  on a special car from the Queen Bess  mine, where be was seriously bruised by  a cave-in. lie is now doing very well at  the. hospital.  Gavin Spence and Flora McDonald  gave one of their entertainments here  on Wednesday evening. Both looked  well in full Highland costume. Spence's  stories were old���������oft told���������but he told  them very well, and sings in a good,  average voice. Miss McDonald's rich  Scotch voice showed to good advantage  in "Mary of Argyle." They give a good  entertainment, but neithei of them is  the best .on the stage. They took perhaps $108 out of Sandon.  New Born Infant Found.  Body Found Floating in the Stream  by the Chief of Police.  As Chief Stubbs and others were  crossing the creek at the lower end of  the town oh Wednesday evening they t  saw something whirling around in an  eddy that arrested their attention, and  taking it out found it to be the body of a  male child, born a'couple of days before,  and without dress of any description.  They at once took it to the city buildings where it was kept until next morn,  ing when an inquest wa,s held.  Mrs. O'Donnell, a, married woman,  late of Three Forks, who has been a  cook at a hotel for a few weeks and  whose . husband has left' her, acknow- ���������  ledges she had a premature birth, but  says she never ordered the body disposed of in that way, as the corpse is  some think is the same one.  A jury of six was sworn in by Coroner  Lilly, R. McDonald, foreman, and the  body viewed by them and examined by  Dr. Power. The doctor gave it as his  opinion the child lacked a little over two  months of maturity and was stillborn.  Dr. Gomm examined the body and  came to the conclusion that it was a  stillborn child.  N. Nelsen and Miss C. Tide, as  witnesses, were axamihed and declared  that they have no knowledge of a birth  in the hotel.  The case was adjourned till Monda)1-  to get evidence as to what became of the  body of Mrs. O'Donnell's child and how  this body came to be thrown in the creek  Celebration at Silverton.  A large crowd attended the sports at  Silverton yesterday, who watched the  sports with interest, Slocan City and  Silverton football teams lined up first,  and when time was called the score  stood Silverton 4, Slocan 0. The game  of the day however, was between Sandon  and New Denver. It was well contested  throughout. In the first half after much  passing, J. J3. ClifFe scored for Sandon.  The second half was something like the  first, the ball being kept confined <to  Denver's goal, finally they scored by a.  There is a rumor going around to the . fluke.

The Bluestreak says that Squire  Lovatt was running, for Mayor "on his  own account." Then his own account  must be the major portion of the constituency.  time was called the score was 1 to 1.  After playing an extra half hour, during which the Denver team were kept  on the defensive and nearly worn out,  they gave the game to Sandon, seeing it  was useless to play longer. This left  the final game for the medals between  Sandon and Slverton, which did not  come, causing much disappointment.  The Sandon boys wanted to play but  Silverton kept dillydallying until it was  too late too play the game and catch the  boat. This is just what Silverton wanted, it being heard on all sides that they  were no match for Sandon and were certain of defeat. It expected the game  will come off at Slocan City on the 12th  of July. In the baseball match between  Silverton and Slocan City the former  won by a score of 25 to 14. In the athletic sports Gusty carried off all the  prizes.  In the JCaslo sports yesterday Sandon  Baseball Club were defeated in a score  of 5 to 11. This is owing to a few green  players on our team.  UBIU.W1WIIUU4IHAJ WMIMUUilMM!

Practicality  every trade    has  some  peculiar disease attached to it which  more often than not is so malignant  that   unless  the  victim    changes  his  occupation a slow  and  painful  death  is the result.   The matchmaker's complaint  of  "ph;o3sy-jaw."   was  at    one  time the most deadly of all trade maladies, though, happily, a remedy has  bean  found In  thio    newly-discovered  phosphorus  now. used  which  reduces  the number of- fatal cases to   a minimum.   Nevertheless,  a large  percentage of workers in mialch factories still  succumb to the  ailment every  year,  the.   symptoms     being    a crumbling  away of the jaw-bone, which ultimately ends Ln total paralysis and death.  .   Few  people  look   upon- the  cutlery  trade as dangerous,    but    there  are  scarcely any    callings  more  so.      In  every  factory  the  air  Ls   laden with  invisible metal dust caused by grind-  ling the steel, and, this being carried  into the Lungs  produces asthma  and  consumption.      The grinders  bending  over their work iinhale such enormous  quantities of the dust that they rarely live above Lhe. age of forty, while a  necdic-poliisher  who begins  to    work  say at seventeen may  think  himself  lucky if hs  Ls living at thirty-seven;.'  One of the most terrible diseases is  that  which attacks .wool-sorters arid  all  who handle   untanncd skins,   for  not only do they breathe the poisonous fumes that arise from all skins before  they have  been preserved,    and  .which invariably cause    consumption  or diphtheria, but they are   /'..

Dyers, bleachers, and all who.labour  im factories .w'hiere chemicals are  largely used seldom attain their  fortieth year. The chlorine, attacks  the lungs and burns them away gradually but surely, while those occupied in making- the gas are well aware  that a man's life after he has taken  up such employment is limited to ten  years*.  Glass-workers are assi.lcd by a multitude of dangers.. In the first place  millions of jagged fragments' of glass  are always floating in the air and,  being inhaled, wound the lungs, causing hemorrhage and a prematlurc de-  innse. Them they frequently go dumb  through u peculiar complaint brought  on by hand ling- the glass, and which  attacks the jaws and ends in'paralysis  In looking-glass factories, in addition  to these dangers there is that of mercurial poisoning, which deadens, the  sight, crumbles away the jaws, and  ultimately kills. The average mortality among those who have worked in  glass for more than twenty, years is  over GO per cent.  .When once :i man takes to mining  he courts death not only from explosion, but from a number of diseases  as well. No section of the community  suffers so heaviily fiom consumption,,  and  the life underground produces  BLINDNESS AND AGUE,     i  Paralysis foJJow.s if .the work is persisted in, and not infrequently loss of  reaeicin. In lead, copper, and quicksilver mines the results are oven more  disastrous. Mineral poison beccimes  injected into the system, and, besides  originating' blindness and paralysis,  causes the teeth to fall out, while  "copper canker," as it is calJed, eats  into the flesh in precisely the .same  ,way as leprosy.  Even the baker runs endless risks in  producing your daily loaf. First of all  ing, an explosion equal to dynamite  in force will follow. Then there lurks  im the flour u little microbe that cats  into Lhe teeth, causing them to break  away at the roots, and attacking the  drums of the ears brings on deafness,  to say nothing of fanning the spark of  consumption. The painter is poisoned or paralyzed through mixing paints  owing to the large quantities of arsenic and whilelead Lhey contain; and  the jewelleir is likely lo suffer a  similar fate from the most virulent of  all solid poisons���������diamond dusL. Cataract and loss of sight are also common ailments with those who set  jewels.  It is rarely that one comes across  a veteran diver, or, if so, he has- not  bean in the habil of diving to great  depths. The first warning the deep-  sea di'veir receives to the effect that  the high pressure he has undergone  is about to emd. his career is copious  bleeding at the nose, accompanied by  occasional fits of giddiness. From  this two things may emanate; either  total collapse of the nervous system  and partial paralysis; or diver's palsy,  both, of course, causing the'victim to  become  ;        A CONFIRMED INVALID.  Strange to say, exactly the same maladies attack steeple-jacks and all who  work at a great height, while the 2,-  500 men who toll day by day, in London sewers are apt to find themselves  suddenly struck dowin by a. malignant fever, which, if 'they recover,  leaves them weak and decrepit for the  rest of their lives, it being brought  on by tbe poison the deadly viewer-  gas in-stiLs into the bLood.  it is gcnea-ally believed that no  healthier individuals exist than poljcc-  niien and sailews, but this is a great  mistake. Figures which Lhe writer-  has authenticated prove that 30 per  csmt. of the police, go into consumption, the result of our treacherous  climate, and those who do survive are  generally attacked in old age by acute  bronchitis-and asthma. Sailors alone  aire subject to a terrible disease  known, as scurvy, which either brings  its victim to.an early grave or renders thorn .weak and often helpless for  life. Moirebver, .the lack of shade  during hot weather at sea -and the  brilliance of the. sun upon the water  impairs the sight, and in later years  Jack may suddenly and without the  slightest warning go completely  blind.

For years, Mr. Gagnon has suffered  with Kidney Complaint. What he has  endured is beyond description. Everything    he tried failed to cure him.  He had ,read many advertisements  of how people were cured of Kidney  Complaint by the use of Dodd's Kid-  .ney Pills, and at last determined to  make one more try. Happily for Mr.  Gagnon, he had at last found the  sovereign remedy for all Kidney Complaints. Now fle is well.

His "-frantic efforts to  meet  the  teacher's suggestions !ia;������--  \Vay  are simply  heroic.;  A few days ago, the master of one  of the elementary schools in Newbury was teaching his boys the composition of sentences, and said to  them: ",.���������',  If L ask you, "What have I in my j  hand?" you must not answer "Chalk,1  but make a full sentence, and say,  " You have chalk in your hand.''

Wrong  again;  worse    than    ever 1  It is perhaps not generally known  that 17,000 Russian troops .were encamped in ihe County of Kent in'the  year 1799. They were to form part  of that army which made such a disastrous campaign in Holland, under,  command  of  the  Duke  of  Yor.k.   ,  The appointment of .Vice-Adihiral  Sir C. A. G. Bridge to be Commander-  in-Chief of Her Majesty's.ships and  vessels on the China station; is officially announced to the Admiralty.  The .War Office returns7 show that  the total of British deaths.in South  Africa up to January 31stwas 12,989,  of which 7,7.93 died of disease, and  only the comparatively small" remainder of 5,196" from wounds received  in action. More men were killed outright   in   the  three    days'  battle, at  Gettysburg in the American civil  war than have died on all. the battlefields of South Africa in sixteen  months.  By the laws- made centuries ago,  and which have been in existence in  some form or another ever since.- the  reigning monarch is supreme lord of  both the army and navy, for both institutions are considered to be his  own, and are really supposed' to be  paid  by him.  (SUNDAY   GOODS -TRAINS' TO LON-  DON.'.  ���������  Mr.'O. R. Stretton, in a history of.  the English Midland Railway just  published,'tells why goods trains', arc  run, on Sundays. ;The heavy fast  goods trains composed of covered vans  Dr waggons sheeted over, which may  be seen making-their way up to London  on  Sunday,  consist    almost   en  tirely of perishable    food traffic, such  wrathfully replied the master.

If it were possible for one Sunday to stop thesa trains running for  twenty-four hours the results would  be that on Sunday and Monday morning the people of London would be  starving. The exact total value of  the food carried by all the lines, into  London on Sunday is very great, and  taking that over the Midland only,  it is wqrth about ������30,000 each Sunday. . . ,.,  The War Office has decided-to publish an official history or the .war,  Dr. Robertson Nicoll, in the current  number of the British Weekly.states  that the work has been entrusted to  Lieut.-Colonel G.

There have been many Kidney medicines offered for Bale in this Province from time to time. Some have  failed to even relieve, a few others  have given temporary, relief, but  only one has cured permanently and  completely every case of Kidney  Trouble, and that one is Dodd's Kidney Pills.    '  There seems to be no case of Rheumatism,. Lumbago, Sciatica, Kidney,  Bladdetr, or Urinary Trouble, ��������� that  this wonderful medicine will not immediately relieve and permanently  cure and Mr. Gagnon's wonderful restoration amply'proves the truth ������f,  this statement.       , i  Dodd's Kidney Pills are the only  remedy known to Science that has  ever cured Bright's Disease, Diabetes  or Dropsy. .,   '  EASTERN POSTMEN.'  Mean* Adopted ln lhe Far East for Carrying the Mall.  Among- the most picturesque postmen of the world are the "Camel Express Messengers" of Bokhara. The  men wear a serviceable red uniform,  and a large green turban, embroidered with gold thread. From their  girdle hangs a curved sabre in a red  sheath. The camels are adorned  with trappings of gay cloth and tassels, ornamented with blue heads and ���������'  cowrie-shells, and with small brass  bells round' their neck, to give notice  of their approach.

Mr. Bartram Hiles was born in  Bristol, and was deprived, at the age  of eight years, of both his arms  through an accident. Before this  catastrophe he had developed a  strong passion for drawing���������so strong  that the lo3s of his anns< in no way  diminished his ambition'jto become an  artist. Working with courage and  enthusiasm, he obtained a "first-class  excellent" in the second grade for  freehand (!) drawing within two  years, of his  accident.  At the age of 16 Mr. Hiles exhibited  a study in water colors at the Bristol Fine Art Academy, and his; career ag an artist was fairly begun.  But it took him upward of six years  to obtain complete mastery over the  muscles of his mouth; yet time and  practice made him more expert than  ever in  freedom a.nd   touch.  The young artist has exhibited at  the Royal Society of Bristol Artists,  the Dudley Gallery, etc., "very nearly," he said smilingly, "at the Royal  Academy," and where Mr. Hiles' pictures were accepted it was entirely,  on their own merits, the hanging  committee being quite ignorant of  method used!

Now   that   the   mine owners, minors  and business people in general have time  on their hands, it would not  be amiss  if they would all take a quiet look over  the mining legislation of the last three  years, and ask themselves' the question-  quietly "Has it paid ? "   While the price  of  lead is now low  ������12 s8 in England,  about $2.00 here, it has within the last  six years been lower, and old miners in  this vicinity have assured us they packed   ore   to   Kaslo from  here years ago  when  lead and silyei were no  higher  than they are now, and if not at a profit''  certainly at no loss.   There was then,  however, the ten hour day in force when  20 per cent, more work was done by the  men  for  the same outlay than  is now  done.   This.20 per cent.wasa very heavy  ofi'set against the low price of lead.  Without being asked for it by tbe men  however, tbe bass.wood politicians who  had ' no other qualifications to recommend them to the electors passed the  law that gave the country its first black  eye���������a year of absolute idleness, when  prices of lead and silver were both profitable.  The next black eye is a double tax on  output with conditions already strained  to their utmost, and all properties over  burdened with a 20 per cent, increase in  cost of output and other hampering circumstance. Next again follows increase  in cost of locations, assessments, and  threatened doubling of poll tax, air to  discourage prospecting, finding new properties for the speculator and profitable  work for the miner.  Three and four years ago before these  vexatious enactments were enforced,  capitalists and purchasers were coming  in by the score, paying hotel bills, buying more or less goods and making deposits on purchases and options. The  beneficent legislation of our ,-basswood  politicans Jnas driven all -these to other  countries andother parts, and we get  no more oi the money that gave us those  good times, and we put on our spy glasses and sigh for their return.  Instead of giving our surplus domain  and cash to the prospectors to enable  them to make expenditures and open up  their claims, our bass wood politicians  have again handed them over to foreign  railway charter mongers who are expending them in ease and luxury, and  we eet none of the returns.  Again we ask our mine owners, miners and business people to sit down in  the cool shade of the leafing tree and  ask themselves the question "Has this  all paid?" It should teach them a lesson  in politics, and induce them when elections wheel around again to give their  confidence to men of more stamina���������to  men who pledge themselves to work for  the growth of the country instead of  legislating for tho votes of men, but will  they do it?

He has lost it  just as the card fiend loses in a game of  Black Jack, and he should have just as  many to sympathize with him. How  many eastern men are there who came  to this country personally, looked- over  properties, haft a competent man measure the ore in sight, paid a price for it  based on mark value, less the cost of  mining/transport and such charges,and  can truthfully say they lost money in  mining ? Or again, how many are there  who bought several young properties at  moderate upset prices, and after working  them all can conclude they lost money  on the full deal ? We venture to say the  number who can answer these twoques-  tions in the affirmative is very limited.  John Houston, since he got into the  House, is showing himself at tbe elbows  every turn.   In short, it is  proof ofthe  old saying "The  higher up a monkey  climbs, the more   more   he   shows his  tail."    When the mine owners a short  time ago began to  import miners  from  the east to start up the mines, Houston  denounced them  in   the most unmeasured language, to curry favor with the  miners, whose, votes  he wanted  a few  weeks later.   Now a mid-week half holiday has been conceded by some of the  merchants   in   Nelson, to   shorten  the  labors of their clerks, and  Houston opposes it.     The   Nelson Clerks' Union  say they require the recreation, as some  of them work 11 hours a day and more.  Houston retaliates by saying if the clerks  don't  like   their   long, hours plenty of  young men can be brought .in  from the  east to take their places.   What do the  mineis think of the consistency of their  idol Houston ?   He is in parliament now  and is not looking for votes.  W. S. Dricwky  S.indon, C ,C.  H. T.TwiGO'-  I-;  New Denver, U. C.

Looking  over one of your books I noticed Dr.  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery recommended for indigestion. We bought  some and gave to our boy. Two bottles  of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cured him. He is well as can be,  and can eat anything that he wants and  it does not hurt him.

For instance: ���������  Nut and; Celery Salad:���������This' is excellent and very dainty, served in  green peppers, which have been scooped out. To 1 qt walnut, hickory hut  or even peanut meats, allow 3 pts  finely cut celery and 11-2 pis mayonnaise. Place the nuts in a saucepan with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 small  onion /sliced and two bay leaves, if  they can be procured. Cover with  boiling water and cook 10 minutes.  Skim out the nut meats'and drop  into ice water for half .an hour.(\Then  drain dry, sprinkle with salt and  pepper and ��������� mix with the celery and  dressing.

HOUSECLEANING- SUGGESTIONS.  Equal parts of fine salt and fine  white sand, moistened with vinegar,  will clean brass faucets.  If a lump of common washing soda  is put into the sink over the drain  down which -the waste water passes  and boiling water be poured over it  at frequent intervals, it will thoroughly cleanse the pipe from grease  and keep it from clogging up.  If a little ammonia is put into the  warm soft water used for washing  windows, and plenty-of clean lintless  cloths are used for polishing, the secret of beautifully ehi'iiing windows, is  known.       _ : ..

A resident in a small suburban  town had a visit from a German  friend who know very little English  but played the violin well. One of this  resident's neighbours gave a musical  evening" and, of course, he and his  visitor were invited. The Gerniau  took his violinj and, when bis turn  came, he played one of his best pieces,  from   one   of   the   great   masters.  When he had finished there was an  awkward silence and no applause;  The. people'.wore istill looking expectantly nt thc German who looked disappointed and flustered.

HOARDS OF GOLD.  <  Newfoundland I'lslierfolKs Have $'J,01>0,(K������t)  Stored Away.  It is estimated that fully ������2,000,000  in American gold is hoarded up- in  Placentia and Fortune bays on ��������� the  south coast of Newfoundland. This  money has been saved by the fisher  folk and is hidden in'the most unlikely places. Since the disastrous bank  failures in 1891, which taught the  fishermen a lesson about banks, every  man info whose possession a hank-  note, cheque or Government order  comes hurries at once to exchange it  for a Yankee eagle, and this, is as  hurriedly'put away with tho secret  hoard, which in some cases amounts  to thousands of dollars.  In Placentia Bay most of this  money is. obtained through the frozen-herring fishery, which is prosecuted during January, February and  March. Every American captain  brings from ������2,000 to. ������3,000 in gold  with him when he comes after frozen-herring. Of all this stream of  gold comparatively little finds its  way out of the district. In many  cases men seemingly but ill-supplied  with the world's goods, have been  known to produce .������2,000 and ������2,500  for the purchase of a schooner or  fishing property, paying down the  money in every instance in United  States coins.  In Fortune Bay the gold is obtained by the sale of herring for bait  during tlie summer months. All the  American vessels- frequenting >' the  Grand Banks'in quest of cod have to  come into the shore', for this bait,  without which it is. impossible' to secure the- cod. Herring and ice in  which to keep it fresh-are chief items  of outlay by the fishing vessels, and  probably-������100,000 is. spent in this way  'during  the summer.. .     ,\,   ;     ,   ���������  ..'���������;���������  UTILIZING THE "AD."

"They talk awful rot in the village," was Colonel Desmond's emphatic comment, as he turned away  impatiently, and walked down a  side alley.  From the farther end of tho alley  he could see a wide sweep of meadow-  land, with a house or two peeping  from out some distant woods.  "So she never married Harvey, after all!" he muttered.

Seven years'  roasting in India makes a man appreciate his. own country with a  vengeance."  ��������� "But lock at that, now!" cried  Casey admiringly. "And to think  it's seven long years since ye put yer  foot in this ould garden ! And is it  thruc, Masther Gerald, you've been  fightin'.the blacks iver since?

''And the rectory people���������how are  they?" queried Colonel Desmond, with  the faintest flush of colour on his  forehead.  "Musha, they're all thrivii/," replied Casey, with a covert glance at  his master. "Of coorse, the rector  himself gets an odd twinge of gout,  but that's natural enough in a-man  of bis age.

"And who may that lucky individual be, Casey?" asked Colonel Desmond, with the faintest touch of bitterness in his voice.  Casey shuffled uncomfortably.  "Arrah! sure it's not for the likes  of me to be discussin' the gintry," lie  began insinuatingly; "but they do  say in  the  village that he wint  Memory pulled back the hands of  the clock seven years, and in his  dream he looked on life with eyes  that never would, iu reality, look the  same again. Life was such a good  thing in those dear old far-off days  ���������so good, that not all the bitter disappointment and reckless danger of  seven years had rubbed one hour  from off  the slate of his memory.  ���������  But what a fool he had been! She  had fooled him���������led him on, played  with him as a cat plays with a mouse,  and then . It is the way of women to sacrifice men's hearts to their  vanity. Cut she might have spared  him, because���������well, because, after all,  he had loved her ever.since she had  been 'a long-legged kiddie in short  frocks. That was years before Harvey had appeared upon the scene, with  his pushing insistence, and knack of  dangling around her wherever she  went; .  He had always believed in Cynthia,  in whose cause he had first learnt  the art of battle. It was'like losing  his faith in God when he lost faith  in Cynthia.  He remembered the anguish of jealousy that had prompted him to write  that last letter���������the letter whoso  answer was to finally settle his' hopes  and fears. Eyery phrase of ��������� that  fateful missive had burnt itself into his brain for ever. His reproaches,  his burning love and passionate jealousy, all passed before him now, like  the -ghosts of a play. , And then  there blazed out before him, in letters of flame, the closing words���������the  words that demanded her final decision.  "I am sending this note by Casey,"  they ran, "who will also give you a  bunch of violets. Should you wear  the latter at dinner to-night, I will  know at once, and for all time, that  you love me; if not, I will never both-,  er you again!"

'  He had ordered Casey to gather a  bunch of .white violets���������white violets  were her favourite flower���������and deliver them with the letter to Miss  Cynthia without delay.  That was in the afternoon. In the  evening his fate was decided. At  dinner fihe wore a bunch of purple  violets.  Looking backward now, Colonel  Desmond knew that of all the battles  he had been through in his time, the  one ho had fought w>Lh himself that  ill-starred night was the hardest, and  the victory the most creditable he  had ever won. He had taken his  leave like a gentleman, and a week  later sailed for India on active service.  That was seven years ago now; and  the years blunt our sorrows wonderfully; but he had never forgotten the  white violets, nor Cynthia.  Presently the colonel retraced his  footsteps, ���������������������������'���������' v"  "Casey," he said, "is the bed of  white violets' by the south wall still  in existence ?"  The gardener scratched his head.  "Lord, no, Masther Gerald!" he  said. "A blight seemed to come over  them soon afther you left, and the  divil a stem in the bed but died !"  "Ah! Like dreams, Casey," said  the colonel.  "Violets  die  quickly."  "Shure, sir," agreed Casey vaguely; "but the other wans���������you remember the bed of double purple wans' bo  the ould greenhouse '  Desmond nodded.  "Well, though it's moself lhatsayS  it,'" continued Casey proudly, "they're  as bright and bloomin' as the day you  tould me to. pull'a bunch and take  them across with the lctther to Miss  Cynthia! Will ye come and have-a  look at  thim, Masther Gerald?"    '  "1 am afraid, Casey," said Colonel  Desmond, smiling, as ho followed the  old gardener, "your memory is playing you a trick. They were whUp  violets I told you to take to Miss  Cynthia that day. I have every reason for remembering."  "Bless your soul, no, Masther Gerald!" replied Casey confidently, as  they stopped opposite a bed of rich  purple violets. "They waur the  double purples. These is the very  wans, at out feet'. I remember it as  well as if it waur only yesterday.- Ye  called me up to the verandy. 'Casey,*  sez you, 'take this letter, along wid  a bunch of vilets, across to Miss Cynthia at wunce. And, Casey,' sez you,  'it's to be a big bunch���������remember, a  big-bunch.'.   Y<;;* w-'y lnve ?j.?d while,  thought me! Try' to think of what  I did a little gently. And���������and will  you let me try to atone for the wrong  I did you in the past? Lot me try  to win'back a little of the old love-  only a little."  . She suddenly stooped down, and  pulled some of the violets growing  at their feet. As she pinned them in  his coat,  her  eyes  met  his.  "For seven years," she said, "I've  never worn any flowers but these!"  AFTER THE PARADE.

The  devil a flower Miss Cynthia has ever  worn from that day to this but purple violets !"  But Casey's information appeared  to pass unnoticed. The colonel never spoke, only stared across the sunny meadows to where a spiral wreath  of blue smoke crept upward through  the distant woods. ' So that was tho  explanation of Cynthia's purple violets. Poor Cynthia! She had loved him, after all. And lie���������what had  he done lo her? He turned on Casey.  A savage desire to choke thc life out  of this soft-hearted idiot, who had  well-nigh ruined two lives, swept  through him. Then the man in him  triumphed. He fought down the passion bravely. . What was done, was  done, without nope of redemption.  "For all the world as if he'd seen a  ghost," Casey told a crony long afterwards.  "She kem over here wan day afther  ye'd gone ahroad, pir," resumed Ihe  loquacious Casey, tx'c length, "and  axed me if I'd let her have a bunch  av the double purples every morn-  in' while they waur in saison, which  was qua re; seein' they have the best  flowers on thc counthryside in the  rectory garden. 1 reminded her av  that," continued Casey, "but she only  sinile'd a bit sorrowful like, and sed  she'd rather have the wans that grew  here. She called thim a quare name  ���������sed they waur her romance, or  somethin' like that���������but the divil a  name I've iver heerd thim called me-  self but purple violets!"  "And you always let her have  them?" asked the colonel slowly. His  face was very white.  ? "Av coorse, Masther Gerald!" assented Casey insinuatingly. "I know  if ye waur at home yerself ye'd let  Miss Cynthia have the sow 1 out of yer  own -body if she axed it. So ivery  mornin'    she  comes   over  about  this  time, and Begorra! here she   is  herself!" broke off Casey suddenly.  "And if ye don't mind, Masther .Gerald-, ���������I'll'go and, look at the roses."  She came along the wide, gravelled  path, with all her old grace and dignity; and Colonel Desmond, as he  watched her, ' thanked God he had  loved and waited even seven years.  Her eyes were fixed on the ground,  as if she were lost in thougnt, and  she had drawn quite near before she  looked up. Then he went towards  her.  ,   "Cynthia!"  he  said.  A flush of color suddenly swept  through her face, and as suddenly receded again, leaving her deadly pale.  "You?" she cried, recovering herself, with a bravo effort. "I���������we  never heard you had come home."  "'No," he said, gently, taking her  hand. "I came homo last night quite  suddenly. Only yourself and Casey  know I am in Ireland. T never meant  to have come home again," he went  on; "but Fate seems to have forced my  footsteps back to your side again.  Oh, Cynthia, Cynthia," he cried, "forgive me!- I made an awful mistake  that night seven years ago!"    -  ,Then, with one hand tightly clasped  in his, he explained Casey's mistake  ���������the mistake that had swallowed up  seven years of their happiness, and  well-nigh wrecked their lives.  "I could stake my life that I told  him the violets were to be white," he  concluded; "and when you came into  dinner wearing purple, I Well, after that, nothing mattered much." He  broke off thickly.  Her eyes.suddenly filled with (ears.  "It nearly broke my heart," sho  said softly.  "Oh, Cynthia, Cynlhia," he cried, hia  clasp on her hand tightening, "what  a    heartless    brute    von  must  have  RICH, RED BLOOD  ABSOLUTELY   NECESSARY  TO  HEALTH AND STRENGTH.  Through tho Blood Every Organ, Every ,,Sarv������  and Every Tissue In the Body is Nourished���������  If tho Blood is Impure Disease Takes Possession of tho System.  If  you  want   to  be  well   take  care  of the blood. The blood is aptly termed   thc  vital  fluid,  and it is through  it   that   every   organ  and   every  tissue of thc body is nourished.     If the  blood becomes, impoverished, (he   entire system is in danger of a breakdown,  and  what  is  termed  anaemia,  general debility, .or    even    consumption    may   be   the   result.      Prudent  people  occasionally   take, a tonic for  the purpose of keeping the blood pure,  but   Lhe  unwell    are  those  to whom  this, article  is chiefly valuable, as it  will  point out    an    easy and speedy  means    to   renewed    health.       Mrs.  Joseph Herbert, who keeps a grocery  at the corner of St. Germain and Her-  moine streets, St. Sauveur, Que., tells  the following story of broken health  and    renewed vigor:    "I suffered' for,  many-months,    said    Mrs.    Herbert,  "from an impoverished   condition of  the blood, coupled with extreme nervousness.    I  was   very  pale  and felt  languid and indisposed to exertion. A  dizzy    sensation  on    arising  quickly  from a chair, or coming down stairs,  often  troubled me.     Thc least excr- ,  cise  would leave  me almost  out������������������ of  breath, and my heart would palpitate  violently,  while at other times I  would feel a smothering sensation. Often my face and  arms would swell and puff and the  arms became almost useless. I aoc-  tared miorc or less for tbe trouble,  but did nat.get any .real benefit until  I began the- use of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills. I had been, using the  pills only a few weeks when I found  myself growing stronger and better  ki every way, I continued taking  thrv pills for nearly three months���������  for X was determined the cure would  be Thoirough���������but sometime before I  discontinued using them I felt in  better health than I had enjoyed for  years before. My sleep is now  healthful and refreshiing, my. appetite  excellent, and I feel equal to almost  any exertion. I feel that I owe all  this to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and  it will always, give nie pleasure to recommend them."  It is the mission of Dr. Williilms'  Pimk Pills , to make rich, red blood,  nourish the nerves, tissues and various organs of the body, and thu'i, by  reaching the root of the trouble drive  disease from the system. Other medicines act only upon the symptoms of  the disease, and when such medicines  are discontinued the trouble returns  ���������often in an aggravated form. If,  you want health and strength be sure  you get the genuine- with the full  name "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills- for  Pale People" on the wrapper around  every box.

There are thirteen men at-work on  the Utica, Paddy's Peak.  Some of tiie hands of the American  Boy are laid off for a time because of  surface water.  It is not unlikely the passing of the  refinery bonus by the Federal government will at once renew activity in the  Slocan.  Some 400 men ' are laid off at the  Northport smelter and the Le Roi mine  because of a grudge against the foreman  of the smelter.  Sir. Hughes says the Idaho will commence shipping about the first of July,  when wagoning becomes good enough to  keep the concentrator going.,  The second payment has been made  on the Mountain Con, and work will  be resumed on the property, under hew  management, as soon as the snow disappears.  The Payne people are dickering with  the K. it S. for a block of land ,'a mile  or so out of town on which to locate a  compressor plant they now find to be  required.  It is expected the Miner-Graves syndicate will operate the Rockland Group  on an extensive' scale shortly. This  property is a gold-copper proposition  carrying good values.  Geo.

The 2ve\v York Engineering and Mining Jouruallast ,week published a paper  on "A Curious Copper Deposit in Chile,"  in the course of which the following occurs : "It may be interesting to note  that a few months ago the body' of an  Indian was found in oneof the workings.  He had been killed by a fall from the  roof, while engaged in collecting ataca-  nnte in a small basket, which was still  in his hand, bis stone implements being  found alongside. The body is in a perfect state of preservation, evidently due  to impregnation of the. tissues by copper  palts, as well as to the antiseptic action  of the exceedingly dry climate. As  these mines were apparently quite unknown to the early Spanish colonists, it  is to be inferred that the body is of considerable antiquity; this is corroborated  by the style of dress (a waistcloth and  two anklets) and by the stone tools used.  The local belief is that it dates from before tbe time of the Spanish occupation,  say 1600, A. D. Isee no reason to consider thia improbable."  While eight or ten men were sitting  in a hotel at Midway one evening last  week, two masked men entered with six  shooters. One asked for all to hold up,  which was readily granted, and the  other relieved two of the men of $550,  giving a first thought to the pockets in  which the wallets were found. The  country is being searched for the robbers, but so far there is no trace of  them. .  ol Uwi kte  AHROW LAKES, B.C.  The most complete resort on the continent of  North America.
