 *t  / 'A  yjv^t  fUn*x>*^>  VOL. 5���������NO. 22.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  The country will soon be so tame it  will be easily caught.  Mr. H. Smedley returned Thursday  from a trip to Enderby, iu the Okana-  gan section. .  ��������� -  Mr. F. L. Christie is on the sick-list,  but nothing serious is apprehended. It  is hard to down the lawyers.  As we went to press before the Methodist concert was held last evening our  remarks thereon are held over to next  issue.  Chas. Band has sold out his interest  in the Kaslo brewery and,is now in New  York looking lor another opening in  his line.    ,  A number of our hockey enthusiasts  are figuring on holding a hockey tournament in Sandon this winter. Nothing  definite has been done in this matter.  The Sandon Forwarding Company are  sending most of their mules and horses  out to the Oktinagan country this week  to winter, as rawinding is not promising well.  Brakeman McDougall, who met with  an accident a week ago Saturday near  Three Forks, is out of the hospital.  He was not as badly hurt as at first reported,1 and will soon be on duty again.  Mr. Pound has bought tire paintshop  and contents of T. Milne from E. M.  Sandihmds, and removed them to his  residence on Cody ave., where he will  utilize the building as, a workshop and  ,   woodshed.  ; Three cars loaded with machinery and  lumber from the old Laurie, mill, which  is being taken down for the.Pavne mine,  are now on the way. The cribbing for  the concentrator is now ready for building operations.  The Nelson Tribune is growing wild  because it learns the present management of the LeRoi mine at Rossland is  more anti-union than ever Bernard McDonald was, arid little is expected from  the visit of the late Ottawa official.  Some of the business men of Nelson  who were formerly hand in glove with  all the demands of the union; have recently come to the conclusion they so  increase the cost.of labor and material  that it puts further building operations  out of the question.  One of' the biggest howlers for the  unjons and union wages, and a city official at that, was seen . carrying away  from the C. P. R. station the other da\r  a large boxfull of T. Eaton's goods. The  man who suggests reasonable wages for  a city official is called a scab; but these  same faultfinders are ever and always  "on the scab" themselves when it comes  to paying out their own money. Can't  the public see through it ?  Mr. N. Ferris, of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce, was unfortunate enough on Saturday evening to  break his leg below the knee. That  afternoon lie was helping  Mr. Scott  to  Howard West went to Nelson last  week to assist in organising a union  of assayers.  Mr. R. H. Trueman left for Revel-  stoke on Thursday, and will return to  take photos again about Xmas.  A couple of parties brought in a deer  on Wednesday's ti;ain, they had killed  near Slocan. The animal weighed about  450 lbs.  Ex-Alderman Buckley came in from  the Boundary this week, where he spent  the summer working on some claims he  has there.  J. A. Whittier has been over at Frank,  Alberta, looking over the coal fields  over there. Probably he has eye on a  piece of them.  J. T. Kelly, who has been manager  of the Win. Hunter & Co.'s store at  Three Forks, has bought out the store  and bussineas and has now taken it  over.  The daily train seivice on the K. & S.  between here and Cody has been discontinued for the present. Trains in  future will be run twice a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays.  The curlers of both Nelson and Sandon are tendering for the honor of  having the coming winter's bonspiel  conducted under their auspices. Both  have asked the co-operation of Kaslo,  in point of time the Sandon request  being first. It is probable that our  curlers will favor the Sandon proposition, with Nelson a good second. For  quality of ice and for entliusiam of  reception, the curlers say there is/no  place like Sandon.���������Kootenaian.     ���������  Toronto Men are After Coal.  D. R. Young, manager of the Simil-  kameenValley Coal Company; W.Blake-  inore, mining engineer, a former superintendent of the Crow's Nest Coal  Company, and C. B. Murray, of Toronto, are now atAshnola. Mr. Blakemore  will visit the coal lands under option to  a Toronto syndicate, represented by Mr.  Murray, which is owned by the Simil-  kameen Valley Coal Company. At  Ashnola, the company's townsite, work  on the coal measures is being prosecuted by the running of a crosscut  tunnel. Mr. Young has in view the  erection of several buildings, including  IS cottages for the company's employes.  In Tunnel and Stope,  the  The Ruth and Whitewater.  Hotel Reeo Arrivals.  : F.

Mr. Oliver Wethered, who returned to  England recently after a tour of inspection of the mines of southern British  Columbia, has the following to say  about the Ruth and Whitewater according to the B, C. (London) Reyiew:  "Regarding the Whitewater. There  is every promise of regular shipments,  and although there are certain disadvantages in connection with the property as compared with the Enterprise,  I hare no doubt it can be worked at a  good profit. We are now taking steps,  which we think will be successful, to  eliminate the zinc, which has hitherto  been a somewhat troublesome element  in this ore, and this will make it more  profitable and more easily marketable.  "lam very much pleased with the  prospects of the Ruth now that the company is provided with adequate capital,  as it will be enabled to work three  lodes���������the Ruth, Sunrise, and a continuation of the Slocan Star. I have  every reason to believe that by next  spring we shall open up good reserves  of ore. The acquisition of additional  properties during the last few months  should prove of the greatest benefit to  the Ruth company."  fit up his new residence, Mr. Dwver's  house, opposite the school building.  Going home in the dark ho fell a  distance down the embankment, and  met with the accident. He will be laid  up for two or three months.  John Houston has enumerated several  things hated by the Mining Review,  but he has overlooked a very important  one. For instance, we hate the methods  of a man who will endorse any class  legislation, no matter how squarely it  knocks the progress of the country on  the head, so long as it catches votes of  those who have no more interest in the  country than has the man in the moon,  with the hope of keeping himself in  parliament thereby. What, John, do  you really think of the make-up of such  a man anyway? Give us your honest  opinion, honest Indian?  Down In Old Kentucky.  . Lexingtox, ,Ky., Nov. 13.���������There is  much excitement among the delegates  to the convention of the State Federation of Labor, now in session here, over  the address of welcome by VV. C. P.  Breckinridge, who stated that he favored a combination of labor and also a  combination of capital, but he did not  believe a federation of labor would be  possible without complicating interests  of various sections.  Colonel Breckinridge said he favored  labor organizations; that the day of  strikes was over, citing and criticizing  the big steel strike. He said further  that he did not believe it conducive to  the best interests of labor, but an unjust  abrogation of personal liberty for unions  to say to the employers, "You mustem-  ployoniy those we choose, pay them  what we demand." and say to to the  workingman, "Unless you join our  union, you can not work."  This expression of opinion was not  pleasing to a number of the delegates,  and the meeting was promptly adjourned. When they reassembled the  feeling was so strained that trouble  arose in many quarters, ending in confusion and one union withdrawing from  the federation.  W. A. Davis, acting for the Florida  Mi/iing Co., has won the two appeals  made to the Supreme court in connection with application made by H. L.  Lindsay et al. for a winding up order,  costs on appellants.  The Chicago to Resume Work.  The following appeared in the Spokesman-Review of Wednesday in reference  to the Chicago No. 2 near this city:  Articles of incorporation were filed  yesterday by the Sloean-Chicago Mining company. The capital stock was  fixed at 1,500,000 shares of the par value  of 25 cents a share. The incorporators  and trustees are Frank P. O'Neill,mine,  operator; MinnieB. O'Neill, W. S, Mc-  Crea, of McCrea & Merry weather; N. S.  Baldwin, mining engineer, and James  A.Williams, of Crow & Williams, attorneys, all of Spokane. The headquarters of the company will be located in  Spokane.   '  Mr. O'Neil, when asked last evening  concerning the purpose of the incorporation, said:, "We expect to open up  what we regard as a very promising  cUu'm one mile east of Sandon, B. 0.,  and about a mile south of the Slocan  Star mine. Our property adjoins the  Freddie Lee mine and the Cube Lode  property. We have four parallel veins  and two lateral veins. One of the parallel veins carries the same character of  ore of the Slocan Star, and is believed  to be a continuation of that vein. The  assays go 70 ounces of silver and 70 per  cent, lead to, the ton. In the lateral  veins values run as high as 300 ounces  of silver and 65 per cent. lead.  Four tunnels are already ooened up  on the property, 115, 80, 72 and 40 feet  long, respectively. There are open cuts  and strippings of the veins that cost  more than the tunnels. We have secured about 20 showings averaging $100  to the ton, and altogether we believe we  have a promising investment. We expect to have everything in shape for  operating the claim on a large scale by  April 1st. We expect to make a sniping mine almost at the start. A meeting  will be held at the office of Attorney  James A. Williams, in the Hyde block,  Thursday, for the purpose of completing  the organization of the company."  The Surprise is working a new vein  which is turning out wejl.  This    week's    shipments   from  Whitewater amounted to 21 tons.  Shipments from McGuigan this week  were Rambler 87 tons, Soho 15 tons.  ���������  The Fletcher group at Whitewater has  surveyed and a crown grant applied for.  The Golden ,Nugget group, a gold  property on Taylor creek, is to be opened up by W. H. Jeffery.  For last week from   Whitewater, the  Whitewater shipped 81 tons of ore, and  McGuigan the Rambler  65,   and the  Washington 30.  At Silverton the Hewett struck a rich  body of quartz in the lower tunnel, the  last shipment from this mine was 55  tons. The Buffalo made up 5 tons for  a shipment. The Cliff is to be started  up with a small force.  The Slocan Star has stopped shipping  for a few days on. account of the roads  being in bad condition for teaming to  and from the mine. The ore is being  sacked and piled up at the concentrator  until the roads are in hotter condition.  Wm. Plunter has purchased the  Comstock mine at Silverton, which 1ms  been in liqidation for some time. The  price is not yet known publicly, but all  creditors have been paid in lull as a  result of the transfer. It is understood  that their claims amounted to about  $6,000, in addition to the expenses of  liquidation.  P. J. Keogan and D. McPhail who  discovered a three-foot lead of black  sulphates, assaying 263 ounces silver,  but failed to stake the prospect when  discovered, says the Kootenaian, aie  now considerably chargrilled over their  experience. It appears that when they  went to stake the property a few days  ago, they were met by J. M, Gilles���������  whom they1 had left in Kaslo���������and who  bad covered every foot of vacant ground  with locations for himself and partners.  It is a dry ore proposition and is easily  worked.  E. Denzel having brought suit against  the American Boy Mining Co. for #4000,  the company now conies back at the  former secretary and treasurer, claiming tliat he performed his duties in a  negligent and careless manner, whereby  the companv lost mouev, and warts  $3,849.50 from Denzel. " The latter's  claim was for salary as secretary of the  company for money expended in his  office and for certain money duehirn on  the sole of stock. The company claims  that Danzel took stock for himselfj but  did not pay the company what it was  worth.  The Black Hawk, a claim of the  American Boy group, is now under  steady development work, upon which  a long tunnel is being driven and it is  well under way. It is expected the vein  will bo tapped shortly, this lead comes  from the American Boy. As soon as  thelead is encountered, crosscutting will  be done from the old and new workings. About 6000 feet of work has been  done in the American Boy tunnels, and  when the two drifts come together it Is  expected this property will rank among  the richest in this district. From 10 to  11 cars of ore arc shipped every month.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon, for the week were:  Mine. Tons.  Ivanhoe ".

Latest  Reports  as  to  the  Welfare  of the Industry in Cape Colony  A correspondent writes from Capo  Town that for the past fifteen years  ostrich farming" in Cape Colony has  been a highly successful industry: In  the past ten years ending in 1899,  before the beginning of the war, the  number of the birds increased from  115,000 to 261,000. Twenty-five  years ago the statistics of Cape  Colony an id that there were only ten  tame ostrichci; in the colony.  The birds each yield about a pound  and a half of feathers every year,  the average value being about S12 a  pound. The finest feathers, of course  aro the wing feathers of the male  bird, which arc long and white and  bring from*������50 to S70 a. pound. It  takes eighty of them to make a  pound. The wing feathers of the  female ostrich arc much lower in  value because they arc always gray.  The supply was much smaller when  it came wholly from wild birds and  the best quality of feathers frequently brought as much as 6135 a pound.  As each male bird yields only about  twelve or fifteen of these feathers  and as there is always a steady demand for them the price is not likely to fall much until the ostrich  farming industry becomes larger  than it is now.  Twenty years ago almost all the  feathers that came into the markets  were from the wild birds, most of  them from North Africa. Now. however, a dealer in feathers says not  more than 1 per cent, of the feathers  are from wild birds. The business  in South Africa, which is the source  of, nearly all the supply, is now  centred in the -hands of men of considerable capital, who raise, the  birds' in. tho sandy, dry bush-land  northeast of Cape Town. In the  early days of the industry'many-  small farmers engaged in the business, but they were largely forced  but of it in the years of experimentation when the industry was subject to many vicissitudes and they  ha.ve not gone into it since then.  Formerly wild ostriches were killed  to get their feathers, which', were'obtained by plucking them from the  dead animals. Now the crop is  gathered about onx in every eight  yiouths by cutting the feathers from  the bird.

Why the  British Navy Loses  Many Ships.  So  Many people are quite at a loss to  explain why the British navy loses  so many ships through striking  rocks and running aground in all  parts of the world. The percentage  is large as compared with other  naval powers and yet the fact) is  beyond refutation that the captains  and commanders���������and more particularly British admirals���������are equal  and in the majority of cases far and  away superior to those of their  Continental  and  American friends.  The reason why so many British  warships meet with their doom  through such accidents as have been  nentioncd, such as the case of the  Viper recently, is explained by the  reason that pilots are an unknown  quantity to the British navy.  Britain is the only great naval  power in the world whish dispenses  with the services of pilots, and the  value of making her naval officers  responsible for the safe conduct of  their ships through . difficult passages, .and in and out treacherous  harbors, will probably never be fully  realized until Britain is plunged into  a naval war. However useful and  worthy pilots may be in the days of  peace and plenty, it would be akin  to courting disaster to rely upon  them in times of war ; that is, tho  pilots of other nations than her own  One. has only to point to the South  African war to realize the truths of  this doctrine, for the employment of  guides in that campaign by unsuspecting officers led British troops  into many death traps.   a.

UNDERSTUDIES   WHO PUT ASSASSINS  OFF SCENT.

At, one period posts of this kind were  eagerly sought after; but that was  before the evolution of the anarchist,  tho.nihilist and other similar malignant growths of our civilization.  Candidates nowadays are apt to recall with a shudder the fate of Ser-  gius Komaroff, the late Tsar's double  assassinated in mistake for his sovereign and employer at Moscow a  few years back; and of Abdul Hani-  id's unhappy understudy (so like his  royal master that even the palace officials, so it was said, could scarcely  "tell t'other from which"), who was  "removed" (poisoned) by the emissaries of one of the Armenian revolutionary committees, only last summer. The result is  of tho. average royal  more than doubled  couple of decades.  Not that the "billet" was ever a  particularly    "soft"    one. Count  Capo d'Istria, President of Greece,  originated the idea, and he had the  mortification of, losing  TWO OF HIS BEST DOUBLES  This number,    by the bye,  was also  retained for sorvicc by the late  ICING- HUMBERT' OF ITALY,  and of this his enemies were well  aware. Indeed, tho principal duty-  deputed to Bresci's two native-born  accomplices was to make certain  tha.t it was really the King, and not  one of his understudies, that the anarchist killed.  Perhaps,  however,  tho most tragic  story    connected     with  this  strange  profession is that which circles round  M.

The other, a  lieutenant of irregular cavalry, was  literally hacked to pieces by a band  of no fewer than seven assassins in  one of the main streets of Athens.  After that no one would take over  the job on any terras whatever; so  the president had perforce to content  himself with publicly promising that  w'-osoever assassinated him should,  if captured, be punished by being immured within brick walls built round  them up to their chins, and that they  should be kept supplied with food in  this species of torment until they  died. The threat, however, fell flat.  The Count was murdered shortly afterwards. And the terrible promise  made by the deceased president was  carried out to the letter by his-gov-  arnment, the sufferers (his assassins)  reing two wealthy landowners named  Mavromichaclis, respectively the brother and son of a Mainote chieftain  whom Count Capo had imprisoned.  GERMAN EMPEROR'S  SECRET.  The Emieror William I. of Germany's understudy���������at all events  during.the latter portion of tho Emperor's life���������used regularly to shoWj  himself to the people at a certain  window of the Royal Palace at Berlin, precisely on the stroke of noon  each week-day. So well was the secret of this little comedy guarded,  that none outside the Emperor's immediate entourage suspected the ruse;  nor were the facts generally known  to the world, until they were made  public by Prince Bismarck, sonic  years after his Imjdial master's decease.  In Spain, where Court etiquette is  exacting and inexorable beyond all  conception, it would be well-nigh impossible even for a sovereign who  was a man or woman grown to do  without an understudy. To a child  such an ordeal would be quite out of  tho question. Consequently, the little Leon Alphonso, who, as all the  world knows, came into the world a  king, has had a succession of under-  st"dics    from    his  cradle    upwards.  The last understudy of our late revered Q,ueen���������Her Majesty had several  during her long lifetime��������� is now living quietly in retirement in a little  Gloucestershire village. His, Ma-  'jesty the King has so far got along  without this peculiar appanage of  royalty; although, so it is said, he  has been frequently importuned to  appoint one by his nephew, the German    Emperor, who employs three.  of    Bulgaria.       Thrice  in succession j stock,  was ' the man     deputed  by the great i exile  statesman to represent him assassin- '  ated, until  no  one could  be got for  money to play so dangerous a part.  Then    came    forward    Stamboul oil's  bosom friend, M. Bcltchefi���������a man of  whom it used to be said that he was j navigable  ; more    like    Stambouloff    than    was  >' Stamboulofi'    himself���������and offered to  i take his place in public whenever possible.    At first    Stamboulofi"    would  not    hear    of    it, but eventually he  .consented to go about such business  as he must needs transact after dusk  /with his friend and double always by  j his side, so that the assassins, whom  ; he well knew dogged his every foot-  | step,    should    be at a loss to    tell  which  was  which.       The  precaution  I was well taken, but vain, for his enemies shot his friend dead by his side  j in the    principal streets of Sofia on  [the    e\-ening of March 27th,     1S91.  : Stamboulofi himself they allowed to  ; escape,     under the mistaken impres-  sion that he was Beltcheff..    So the  'latter laid down his life for his comrade and colleague.    But Stamboulofi'  never looked up again.    He knew, he  said,  he was    doomed.       And,  as a  matter of fact, ho fell almost    unresistingly a few months later, hacked  well-nigh to pieces by the knives of  the    self-same set of assassins    who  had murdered his friend and double  The Russian Government has  adopted a novel method of educating  farmers in Siberia.

Tho baby who is always plump always has a goon appetite, always  has a clear eye and a rosy cheek,  and is always active and playful, is  the choicest treasure this life affords.  The medicine which keeps babies in  such a condition or which restores  them to it when they are ill is certainly a priceless boon to humanity.  There are many medicines which produce sleep, but their action upon the  child is similar to that which whisky  or opium has upon a full grown man.  They deaden and stupefy and arc the  most injurious things which can bo  given to children.  The only safe course is to use nature's remedies. Nature has provided a vegetable cure for every ill, and  her remedies for children's disorders  are scientifically compounded in  Baby's Own Tablets. For diarrhoea  constipation. colic, simple fever,  croup, irritation when teething, indigestion and all tiie disorders of  children so familiar to mothers, this  remedy is conceded by tho medical  profession to be without an equal.  Its e'iect is gentle, soothing, promptly curative and never failing. Jt will  save pain, anxiety, doctor bills and  perhaps a Jii'c. All mothers who  have used Baby's Own Tablets for  their little ones speak of them in  terms of warmest praise. Mrs. Ben.  Seward, Forfar, Ont.. says : "I have  used Baby's Own Tablets and can  highly recommend incm to all mothers. My baby was cutting bis teeth,  and was very cross when I first gave  them to him. They acted like magic  he cut his teeth almost without my  knowing it, and gave him such case  that they proved a blessing both to  the child and myself. He has not  been sick since I gave them to him,  and I would not be without them in  the house." Baby's Own Tablets  can be procured tt.t any druggist's,  or will be sent postpaid on receipt  of 25 cents by aucircssing the Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockvillc,  Ont.  and it is now possible for an  or an emigrant to obtain a  'good agricultural education! in a few  j months at or near'the capital of  ! every Siberian province. To those  who live at a distance tho school has  [been carried. Wherever there is a  river the agricultural department has provided immense  floating gardens which arc moved  from place to place as object lessons  and schools of instruction for the  peasant farmers. Upon the decks of  large barges all forms of vegetable  life are growing and alt sorts or implements and machinery are displayed, including simple contrivances for  the care of live stock and bees. When  this barge reaches the village the  church bell is rung- and the starosta,  or mayor, sends out messengers to  summon the people from the fields.  For several days the teachers are engaged in explaining the best methods  of producing plants and cultivating  the ground; tho uses and advantages  of the implements and machinery, the  care of cows and sheep, hogs, poultry  and bees, and illustrated lectures arc  {given upon gardening and other agricultural industries. The questions of  | the peasants arc answered intelli-  i gently. If the cattle or the sheep in  that neighborhood��������� aro afllicted with  diseases their owners aro given the  best remedies and taught how to use  them. There are several hundred of  these floating agricultural colleges in  the Russian Empire, and it Is impossible to overestimate tho good thcy  alrcady accomplished.  ...

Only those engaged in tho teaching  profession    realize how     much care,  worry and perplexity    is met     with  daily.   It is therefore    little wonder  that      there     aro so  many     health  breakdowns,  especially among young  ladies who follow this calling.   Miss  Christine. Pare,  of Ojibway,  Ont.,  is  one who has suffered much in     this  respect.   To  a reporter of the Windsor Review,   Miss Pare said  :���������"For  several years, while teaching school,  I  was     continually  troubled     with  headaches,     dizziness    and a'    weak  back.

REPRESENTATION".  Some of the  papers of the  province  aro making a dead sot on a redistribution of representation before the next  general   elections;   but   to   our   mind,  what   the  country   most   requires   is  intelligence and proper judgment in the  electors.   As long as the franchise is' as  wide as it is in Canada,  there is always  bound to be a large vote that is influenced    by    nothing    but    personal  plunder.   This feeling is not confined  to the poorer classes���������it   is   found  in  every   grade  of   electors.   It   may   be  readily conceded  that  every  man   is  looking for something in return for his  vote.   This something in many cases is  simply such reforms in government as  will better the condition of all classes.  This class of selfishness, i3, of course,  most commendable.   Many moniedmen  again,   are  after the election of such  representatives as will advance this or  that project, out of which they hope to  make nice returns.   There is ],again a  section of  the   labor element that is  after nothing but such  enactments   as  will enable them to   make  such and  such  drains on  capital whether  a re-  Xurn is given for them or not.   In the  interest of the   country it is desirable  that  both of the'latter classes should  be curbed.  In a young sparsely settled country  like this, the system of representation, "rep by pop," as it.'used to be  / called in former days of Canada, though  sound in1 principle, cannot well be  enforced. One of the ideas of representation is to enable the people in the  interval between sessions, to meet their  representatives and communicate their  wishes, that they may be crystallised  into law in the sessions. It is clear  from this that sparsely settled districts  require greater representation than  more densely settled portions. It  is easier, for instance, for 10,000  people in Vancouver, to see and tulk  with their representatives, than it is  for 1,000 to do the same in the thinly  v settled parts of the country. For this  reason the country parts should have  several times the representation of the  large cities. In giving four representatives to Vancouver and Victoria, one  each to such places, as New Westminster, Nanaimo and Rossland, the  country parts should have a man for  every 3,000 or less.  As we have said before now, however,  what   is more   important than  denser  representation is that   the men chosen  should be men of conviction, principle  and fairness.    With our,  to some  who  are narrow-minded, conflicting interests,  capital and labor,  it is very desirable  that  every   representative   should   be  capable of  thoroughly  weighing   both  interests, whether he rise or fall  in his  effort, fully resolved ou .such an adjustment of dillerencos as gives a field   for  reasonable and  profitable employment  of capital, opening  up the country and  creating a demand for labor.   As we see  matters the salvation of the country,  and tho batterninent of conditions of all  classes depend wholly upon   the opening up arid development of our resources.  The man who listens to such appeals of  labor as prevent  this is  even to  labor  itself, though it may not be able to  see  it in that way, the worst enemy it can  possibly possess.    Representation terri-  torily, on the lines we have indicated,  EASY TO FIND  When you find a medicine  that makes your regular food  taste good, when you find a  medicine that strengthens a  weak stomach���������then you know  you're going to put some flesh  on.  Scott's Emulsion does these  things. We recommend it  whenever the system needs  more flesh. If you are thin  and able to eat begin regular  doses. That's your part.  Scott's Emulsion will do the  rest. Not flabby���������but solid  flesh.  We'll send you a little to try, if you like.  SCOTT   &   UOWNE,       Chemists,  Toronto.  is very desirable, but it is infinitely  more so that the candidates chosen,  should be well grounded in convictions  as to the progress and advancement of  the country. Ten representatives from  the province, no matter from what  districts chosen, if grounded in resolution for the right, - would be infinitely  more serviceable to th������ people than one  for every mining cainp, who could  see no farther than legislation antagonising capital and labor, and thwarting any  possible advancement in any of our  great industries.  LISTEN!  Gradually even the Paystreak chap is  coming to his senses.   Hear him.  Can't be made by foul hands and clean,  pure blood can't be. made by a foul stomach. The blood is made by the stomach  and organs of digestion and nutrition.  When these  are diseased  they contaminate every  drop of blood  maae from  the food they  act upon, and  this contami-  .nation is carried, through  the whole  body. It may  settle in the  liver, kidneys,  heart or lungs  but the root  of the disease  is in the stom-  ach. Cure  the stomach  and you cure  the disease.  Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical Discovery cures diseases  of the organs of digestion and nutrition  perfectly and permanently. It purifies  the blood, and so by curing the cause of  disease, cures many forms of disease in  organs remote from the stomach.  " For the past sixteen years I have had torpid  liver and indigestion and tried many doctora  and patent medicines but I could not get a cure,*  writes Mrs. Simeon Suggs, of Clyde, Sabine Pap.  ish, l,a. "Three months ago 1 thought I would  try Dr. R. V. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery  and his 'Pleasant Pellets.' I got six bottles of  each and I received a good result in a week, and  to-day I am cured sound and well. The symptoms were coated tongue, specks before the eyes,  disposed to be cross and irritable, foul stomach,  bad taste in the mouth, tired feeling, a feeling  of dread or fear, headache, yellow skin, etc.  These symptoms did not all appear at once. If  sufferers from such troubles will take Doctor  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and 'Pleasant Pellets' as directed in pamphlets wrapnlng  bottles, they will bring back the bloom of life as  it did with me."  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure bil������  iousness and sick headache.  "'With the right kind of legislation,  the Slocan would be the busie&t camp  on earth. .... Nevertheless the  payroll is small and the shipments are  not a circumstance to what they should  be. Settlements at $1.46 a hundred do  not justify the mine owners in taking  the ore out of the ground   The managers would simply be foolish  to ship ore without making a profit."  This is exactly what this paper has  been telling the miners and public  generally for the past two years, and  for which the miners and their bosom  friends have being trying to boycot this  this.paper; but the truth will always  wash.  This paper never opposed an eight-  hour day to the.miners, nor $3.50 for an  eight-hour shift when conditions warranted both. What we did oppose, and  what we now oppose, is efforts to force  either one or the other, when conditions  warrant neither. We showed to the  satisfaction of all who want to read, in  our last issue, that averaged up from  the inception of mining in the proyince  to the present operations, have' paid  investors but two per cent, on investments. Many mines have done much  better, and many men have made  themselves rich by their investments in  the province; but as one swallow never  makes a summer isolated instances of  success do not prove that the entire  business is a success.  Supposing now the eight-hour law  had never been passed, that eight-  hour shifts were in operation in the  camp, and that managers and men,  were at liberty to make their own  bargains, as they mutually thought  best. If a ten-hour shift at $3.50 was  suggested to the hundreds of idle men  in the camp, the bulk of them would  find it'to their interest to accept; the  managers would get from from 15 to 20  per cent, more from their expenditure  than they are now getting and they  could afford to do what the Paystreak  says they cannot do under the present  legislation���������work their mines to-full  capacity, pay the highest wages, and  make a little money for those who have  trusted the country with their capital.  We ask all fair minded men if this  would not be better all around. When  the mines are developed, prices iii-e good,  and everything'' bouyant, , nvn have  a perfect right to ask for'an eight-hour  day, and rvph $3.50 frir that; but in  mining as in every thing,else, conditions  must govern hours and wages. If, for  instance, the mines of the Slocan were  80 far advanced as to have a capacity of  100,n00 tons instead of 30,000 as at  present, and that nilver and lead were  75 and $2.50 instead of the present  rulings, mine managers would be scouring the country for good men, instead of  men' hunting for work. The latter  could demand $3.50 for eight hours  without legislation on the subject, itnd  the managers would have to pay it.  Self-intetest would force, on amicable  lines, what compulsion can never do  satisfactorily. This has always been  the stand of this paper, and the prints  that a few months ago were-working the  least intelligent elements of the country  up to blood heat against up, are now  swinging around and walking in our  footsteps.

Queen Bess Makes Good Showing.  The fourth ordinary general meeting  of the Queen Bess Proprietary Company was held in London on Tuesday,  October 29th. The liscal year of this  company ends on March 31st, and although the report of the directors  shows a tidy balance upon the year's  operations, they did not feel warranted  in declaring a dividend. The mining  operations of the company show a  balance on the right side of ������5891 4s  6d, and to this is added interest on deposits, etc., amounting to ������331 7s,  making a total of $6222 lis Cd. The deductions made from this include London office expenses of ������1088 7s 3d,  mine management ������1437 15s, and sundry expenses of ������1725 15s lOd, which  leave the profit on the year's operations  of ������1970 13s 5d. Against this the directors decided to reduce capital expenditure by writing off ������498 lis lOd for  depreciation.   This brought the balance  ��������� down to ������1472 Is 7d, to which was'ad-  .   ded the credit  balance of ������428 9s 5d  brought forward from the previous year.  This gave a total balance of ������1900 lis,  from which the directors wrote off  ������1500 development, leaving a balance  of $400 11s to be cariied forward to  the next account.  In their explanation  of the accounts  the directors express   regret that the  ��������� condition of the mine did not permit  of larger shipments , being made, the  increase over tho previous, year being  but 125 tons, A further factor which  affected the results was the continuous  hill in the price of lead, representing  about ������4 per ton, and as about GOO  tons of lead were extracted from the  ore they point out but for the price of  load the result would have been much  more satisfactory.  Development work upon the property  has been followed up energetically. The  main tunnel was extended 1670 feet,  and the main shaft from tunnel No. 5  connected therewith, and intermediate  levels Nos. 6, 7, 8 and 9 were started.  In the No. 6 the ore chute was found  and various raises put up to connect  with tunnel 5, but up to. the date of the  making of the report ore had not  been found in tunnels 7, S and 9, nor  in the main shaft. In this connection,  the engineer of the company, E. R.  Woakes, is cited as of the opinion that  a had fault has occurred between tunnels 6 and 7, but that the ore chute that  was found in the upper levels was continuous in depth, coupled with this a  suggestion that prospecting work be  continued in the main and lower tun-,  nels with a view to finding it.  The output ot the mine for the fiscal  year was 733 tons of galena of a grosB  value of ������12,0S7 7������,  and 677 tons of carbonates of a gross value of ������5595 6s  7d,   Of this there were 230 tons of ore  on hand of a value of ������2145 3s, so  that  the actual output of the property for  the year was   1180   tons   of  a value of  ������15,637 10s 7d.   The gross value of the  galena  per ton  was ������16 9s 6d,  and of  the carbonates ������8 5s 2d.   The average  cost per ton in mining, sorting,  haulage, etc., is given as ������3 14s (5d,   and   the  cost of freight and treatment ������4 19s i)d,  making a total of ������8 14s 3d.  An interesting feature is the report  of the directors to the effect that the  increase of lis 8d in the cost of mining,  sorting, haulage, etc., is due to the  higher wages granted by the terms of  settlement of the strike.  The report of the directors suggests  the necessity for some outlet for the  ores of the province other than that  offered by the United States smelter  trust and the few independent smelters  in the United States. The directors recite that great difficulty was experienced during the year in getting ore  smelted, owing to the action of the  American smelters, and that as a result many of the mines in the district  had to close down. They themselves  consider they were fortunate in obtaining a contract at the Nelson smelter  for smelting all the company's ores at  slightly increased charge. This they  explain accounted for the increased cost  of freight and treatment, amounting to  2s id per ton.

OTTAWA FREE  A Prominent Ottawa Man Confirms Under Oath Every Statement Made  by this. Paper in the Original Story Published Nearly  Seven Years Ago-  (From the Ottawa Free Press)  Some seven years ago the Free  Press published a graphic account of  a remarkable case here in Ottawa.  A man named George II. Kent had  been cured of Bright's Disease after  the doctors had given him up Lo die,  and the Free Press reporter, alter a  most thorough investigation, published the whole story in detail, giving credit to .Dodd's Kidney Pills for  the most miraculous cure.  The following sworn statement  was given by Mr. Kent in order to  substantiate the almost incredible  statement made by the paper in its  account of the case.  (Sworn Statement, Feb. 16, 1895.)  I, George Henry Kent, resident  at 114 Cambridge Street, Ottawa  that I am perfectly cured and  able to do a day's work with  any of my comrades in the shop,  and Dodd's Kidney Pills undoubtedly cured mc, because from  starting to take them I took no  other medicine whatever.  AND I make this . solemn declaration, conscientiously believing the same to bo true, and by  virtue of the ACT RESPECTING  EXTRA JUDICIAL OATHS.  Declared before mo at the City  of Ottawa, in the County of  Carleton, this 16th day of February, 1S95.  G. II. KENT.    '  (Sgd) CHAS. A. BLANCHET,  A  Commissioner, etc.  Tho Free Press in the article pub-  and employed as a printer in^thc ! iis]1Ccl in 1895 stated most positive-  British American Bank Note ; \y that Dodd's Kidney Pills and no-  Printing Company, in the said -{thing else were entitled to the credit  City of Ottawa,  do  solemnly dc- , 0l- having saved the dying man's life,  clare that. I consider it a duty to  myself and to my' fellowmcn generally to make a declaration as  to the efliciencv of Dodd's Kidney  Pills.  1.  That I found    them    in my ' manent. one.  terrible case of Bright's Disease,  from which I suffered for almost  and  this was  most emphatically endorsed    by    Mr..'   Kent in his sworn  statement".    The Free Press also said  ��������� without qualification that the cure of  i Mr.  Kent was an absolute and per-  And  while  Mr.  Kent  could not make a sworn    statement  as  to the future,  he stated  that he  one year, of the greatest medical   felt he was permanently cured,  value.    I can sa,y confidently and :    Notwithstanding    this   _ there were  assure    anyone    interested,    or a ' many who  could not believe  that a  sufferer, that I positively owe my  life and present excellent health  to the results brought about by  their use. I was taken sick and  confined to my bed on December  28th, 1893, and was successfully  treated for La Grippe, then Pleurisy, followed by Kidney Troubles,  and latterly Bright's Disease. I  lost the use of all my limbs; my  entire body became swollen to a  terrible size, and my skin became  as hard as and similar to leather  the pores all having closed up,  and I suffered the most agonizing  pain. I was subject to periodical  spells of utter prostration and  insensibility, to a state of absolute coma. I was also a victim  of dangerous convulsions in which  my facial expression and other  muscles would become severely  contorted  and   tense.  2. My regular physician attended to mc, and, though medical  consultations wore held over iny  case by two city doctors, nothing  could be done. My case grew  gradually worse and latterly I  was given up as hopeless. My  wife, friends and neighbors were  certain from what they snw and  were told by the visiting doctors  that I would die in a very short  time.  3. My wife was casually reading a newspaper about this time,  and saw a description of a similar case, in which a patient gave  testimony of the relief and cure  that had been effected on him by  Dodd's Kidney Pills. I started  to take them right away, and  from the first pill I discovered a  change for the better. After the  first box I was wonderfully improved, and at the end of the  fourth I was sure I was to tfefc  well  again.       I continued taking  man with one foot in the grave as  Mr. Kent was could get a lasting  cure.  It occurred to the Free Press the  other day that it would be interesting to eriquire now, after the lapse of  nearly seven years, as to how Mr.  Kent was feeling.  - He had removed to 40S Gilmour  Street, and at that address a Free  Press reporter found  him.  After reminding Mr. Kent of the  article and his affidavit the newspaper man asked him point blank:���������  "Have you lost any time from  your regular work since you were  cured of Bright's Disease by Dodd's  Kidney Pills in 1895?"  "Not a minute," answered Mr.  Kent promptly.  "Have you since had the slightest  symptoms of your oid kidney trouble or anything like it?"  "Not the slightest," he said.  "You arc sure that Dodd's Kidney  Pillsund nothing else saved your life  and restored you to your present  good health?"  "Absolutely sure. Why, my wife  and T are so grateful to Dodd's Kidney Pills that we have christened  our little girl, born in December, of  189(5, by the name of 'Dodds.' This  shows you better than anything I  can tell you to what we attribute  my recovery- 1 owe my life to  Dodd's Kidney Pills."  "Would you be willing in order to  confirm our story published in 1S95  to make another sworn statement?"  asked the scribe.  "If it would do you any good I  hn/ve no objections," answered Mr.  Kent,, "The Free- Press was certain-  ly well within the truth in every  statement they published about my  case."  SWORN STATEMENT, OCT. 3, 1901  I, GEORGE HENRY KENT,  resident at 40S Gilmour Street,  in the City of Ottawa, and employed as a printer at the American Bank Note Company in the  said City of Ottawa, do solemnly  declare:���������  1. That on February 16th,  1895, I, George Henry Kent, then  resident at lid- Cambridge Street,  Ottawa, did appear before Charles A. Blanchct, Commissioner,  etc., and before him on that date  did make a solemn declaration regarding my recovery from  Bright's Disease by the use of  Dodd's Kidney Pills and setting  forth the facts of my case and its  cure.  2. That in the declaration I set  forth that I believe that I was  absolutely and permanently cured  by Dodd's Kidney Pills after tho  doctors had given mc up to die.  3. That I am now absolutely  certain that Dodd's Kidney Pills  and nothing else saved my life  and I hereby unhesitatingly reaffirm every statement, made in my  declaration before Mr. Blanchct  on February 16th, 1S95.  4. That I have never since that  date had the slightest symptom  of the return of the Bright's Disease or any Kidney Trouble, having enjoyed unremitting good  health and having worked steadily and without interruption full  time at my regular employment  as a printer every working clay  from the day Dodd's Kidney Tills  sent mc back to work to thedato  of this declaration.  5. That in evidence of our gratitude to Dodd's Kidney Pills for  having saved mye life, my wife  and I-have christened a little  daughter born to us in December  of 1S96 by the name of "Dodds."  G. That I have recommended  Dodd's Kidney Pills to many  people in this city and elsewhere,  who having heard of my wonderful escape from death by their  use have called on mc or written  to me enquiring about them; and  having followed many of these  cases closely, I know of no case  where they have been used according to directions that has  not been cured, and I know positively of-my own personal knowledge of several extreme cases  where Dodd's Kidney Pills have  effected satisfactory and permanent euros.  And I make this solemn declaration, conscientiously believing  it to be true and knowing that  it is of the same force and effect  as if made under oath and by  virtue of "The Canada Evidence  Act, 1893.",  Declared before me at the City  . of Ottawa, in the County of  Carleton, this 3rd day of October, 1900.  (Sgd.) G. T-I.  KENT.  (Sgd.) A. W. FRASTOR,  A Notary Public in and for  Ontario. ''.'���������!..'���������  Nothing could be more convincing  than this plain declaration made by  Mr. Kent, and the Free Press is  pleased to be able to pre^nt such a  complete and emphatic confirmation  of our article of 1895.  The Kent case, must, therefore, go  on record as the most wonderful  cure ever heard of in this city or  province. Every detail of which has  been carefully substantiated by  sworn evidence.  To Dodd's Kidney Pills is due all  the credit, for having rescued and restored this dying man and that after  all hope had been abandoned and the  cold waters of the river of death  were lapping at his feet.  ;a.  Mr. Kent, at the request of the  them until the seventeenth boxJ-Free Press, has given the followi^  and I can now positively declare 1 sworn statement:-*  "COPPERS,    SIR."  A schoolmaster in a village school  was giving the children a Bible lesson, the subject being the healing of  the lame man, as recorded in Acts,  Chapter III. After reading the  verse containing Peter's assertion,  "Silver and gold have I none, etc.,"  the master asked, with the Idea of  finding out if the children were  grasping the reason of tho healing :  "Now, what had Peter got, then?"  A number of hands went up, and  on being pointed to a bright-eyed  girl of Severn answered quickly ; j  "Ccfppers, sir/'-  AWFUL PUNISHMENT.  Belgium    Kills    Its    Prisoners   in  Three Years.  Though the death penalty was  practically abolished . in Belgium,  over thirty years ago, the punishment of those convicted of capital  crimes is so awful that no one has  yet been able to endure it more than  three years.  Until recently little Belgium had  two public executioners, although  one was sufficient for her big neighbor, France. Tho King of the Belgians recently ordered the retirement, on a pension of S450, of one  of his executioners���������the '-'executor of  high works," as he is termed. The  other executioner still holds his  place at Brussels.  The duties of public executioner in  Belgium are singular, but not arduous. The Courts still continue to  sentence malefactors to death, but  the guillotine has been replaced by a  scaffold, on which is posted a copy of  the .sentence. Much ceremony is observed in affixing this document: A  troop of police is drawn up about the  place of execution, which they gravely guard with sabres drawn, while  the red-robed executioner mounts the  steps, nails up the decree of the  Court, and, after a moment, takes it  down again.  There his duty ends, for tho condemned man is placed in a dungeon  so constructed that, from the moment he enters it, he will never hear  the sound of human voice nor see a  living being. His food is passed  through a sliding panel in the door  of his cell.  Not one of these prisoners has been  able to survive this confinement  more than three years. The authorities have striven in vairn to prolong  their lives by varying their food ah  much as possible; but those who ar<  moderately or lightly nourished  gradually waste away,; while thosi  who arc generously fed go mad and  die raving maniacs.  WHAT THE CLOSUKE IS.      :  The House Can   Settle. a Question  Without a Debate.  Up to within a few years ago there  was no rule in the British House of  Commons for limiting the length of  n debate or the number of speakers.  This freedom had been so often abus-,  ed by a certain section who tided.to  prevent by a prolonged discussion;1  the House, doing any business, unless  it acceded to their wishes, that it became necessary to introduce some  measure to put a stop to the nuisance. So, on February 11th, 1882,  the Speaker had power given him to  apply the new standing, order, called  the closure, when the occasion demanded, but the rule was only put  in force for the first time on February 24th, 1885, on the occasion  when Mr. William O'Brien was expelled from the House.  The closure enables the House to  settle a question by calling for a division upon it without a debate, in  opposition to a small minority wish?  ing'to lengthen their speeches still  further.  A mo! ion to apply the closure is  on'y put to the House by the Speaker at the suggestion of the Leader of  the House. But the Speaker has  power to decline if he so wills.  The resolution made by Mr. Glad-  st< ne, on June 30th, 1893, to expedite the progress of the Homo Rule  Bill through the committee stage  has brought into use the term:-,  "gag" and "guillotine." This wau  the application of the closure.  In accordance with the idea that  the scheme was rersistently obstructed, the bill was divided into four  parts and a date for closing each  part, without further discussion,  fixed.  Clauses remaining undiscussed after  the expired dates were said to be  "gagged," that is, put by the Speaker by the new power he held and passed without debate. That is the  menning of the closure.  Long before its adoption by' tho  British Parliament the closure (al.-;..>  written closure) had been in force i:;  the French, Spanish, Italian, Belgium  Norwegian and Swedish Parliaments,  but it is seldom exercised by them.  i-  3  ?  %  :���������r IS  the  ��������� ������������������������  BE CAREFUL.  Almost daily' wo read newspaper  accounts , of accidental poisoning.  Most of the cases are due to .the  carelessness on the part of those  who handle deadly  drugs.  Poisons should be plainly labelled  and placed beyond the reach of children or careless persons, and medicines should have their particular  place apart from all other articles  of household use. It is best, always,  to keep them under lock and key,  and one reliable member of the family should be made responsible for  their safe keeping, and he alone  should hand them out when needed,-  and personally superintend tho uses  to which they are put. This plan  may seem a. little troublesome, but  it is the only safe way, and by its  practice many calamities might bo  averted.  In sonic families medicines, which  aro sometimes poisons/ and articles  of household use are pla.ced side by-  side in the cupboard. Bottles from  which the labels of former contents  have not been removed are used for  holding dangerous drugs, and to this  careless custom are due many cases  of accidental  poisoning.  Two cases which came under my  immediate notice, though they happily proved harmless, illustrate -the  danger of careless handling of drugs.  A fanner's wife, having occasion to  bake biscuits for breakfast, used  what she supposed to be baking  powder, taking it from a baking  powder can in her cupboard. Being  hurried; she did not notice, in the  dim-light of the early winter morning, that ��������� the contents of the can  were magnesia' and cayenne pepper, :  which had been mixed and placed in  the can by the invalid of the family,  who used it as medicine. Nothing  more;disastrous than a general fit of  sneezing by the whole family, caused  by the pungent odor of the pepper,  and a mess of heavy biscuits-resulted,  from the mistake, but it was from  no forethought of the cook that the  entire family was not poisoned. as  the material was right at" nana, and  it' was only by a happy chance that  she selected the medicine.  Another case was that of a lady,  who in making a cake, flavored it  with liniment instead of vanilla, the  liniment bottle being similar in size  and shape to that of a common  vanilla bottle, and the contents the  same in color, so the mistake was  very easily made.  In both these cases medicines and  poisonous drugs,  together with arti-  all the vegetables through. Take 2  tablespoons butter and 1 of Hour,  and rub rto a' cream. Pepper and  salt the soup to taste, add i cup  sweet cream, if you have it, and stir  in the butter and'flour. Let boil up,  and serve with fried  bread  chips.  Beef Soup.���������Boil a good beef soup  bone slowly, until tho meat will almost fall,from the bones. Remove  the meat from the kettle, replacing  the bones, and lot boil half an hour  longer. Take out the bones and  add 1 cup rice to 4 qts soup. Return a portion of the meat to the  soup before taking it up for the  tabic. , Beef soup should be r-arciully  skimmed just before it comes to a  boil, as the dark colored scum will  boil into the soup if not taken off  at that time. It should be seasoned  with .salt and pepper half an hour  before taking out the meat. The  meat saved from the soup may be  made into a meat pic for the next  meal, or served cold. ��������� Irish potatoes  and other vegetables may be added  instead of the rice, if preferred.

No family purso is so small that a  wife is not entitled-to an unquestioned share of it. An allowance for  household expenses is prudent and  commendable ; when the income is  limited and must bo adjusted to fit  .the needs of a growing household,  it is almost obligatory, but over and  abovu this allowance there should  be a samlet aside, if it is only S2  or S3 a week, which shall bo wife's  unmolested and uninspected pin money. If her discretion in the matter  of outlay be questionable, the husband is justified, ir. case his finances  demand it, in refusing further personal spending money to her. She  must make up extravagance one  month by economy the next, a process that in itself teaches wisdom  rapidly. That she should, without  trial or cause/be deprived of the  dignity of a private purse, and the  independence of disbursing it as she  pleases is an insult to her character  and an outrage to her wifely rights.

Mrs. Ernest Williams, a wealthy  Yorkshire widow, could not bear the  sight of her nephew, a boy named  Francis Livingstono. The reason was  that, as he grow from childhood, his  features became exactly liko those  of .his lather, Mrs. Williams' brother-  in-law, a man who-had brought disgrace and ruin on-his wife and family. The boy, who was a quiet,  hard-working, clever youth, was  miserable at his  AUNT'S EVIDENT DISLIKE.  At last, at the ago of sixteen, he discovered the reason. He thought over  it for some time, and then made up  his mind to a desperate stop. Instead of coming home as usual from  school at the end of the summer  term' of 189S, he wrote to his -aunt,  asking that he might be allowed to  go abroad for a time to study Oer-  gave her permission  and  sent him money     to  Tho yolks of eggs dry almost     as  soon as they come in contact   with  the air, but if dropped at once, into a'  cup of cold .water will keep in good  condition     in the    refrigerator     for  three or four days,  i ' Whites of eggs,  saved one   or two  : at a time, kept in a cool .place, may  j be used for angels' food,  cornstarch  ' cake,  white layer cake,  apple snow.  or     added     to     the various     fruit  sponges.

TIGHTLY-FITTING FRAMES.  When his aunt died a year  left all she possessed to her  beloved nuphew Francis Livingstone.'  Mr. John Magee, once British vice-  consiil at San Jose, in Guatemala,  reaped an immense fortune by a  plucky deed. During ���������'��������� a revolution  twenty-five years ago the commandant sent Mr. 'Magee a rude message  to appear before him. Magee kicked  the messenger off the vcrandan. Tho  dictator thereupon sent and. had the  British representative dragged before  him, and ordered him to apologize  for not coming before. Magee faced  the, roomful of armed men with  quiet dignity, and told them in plain  lerms what would happen if they did  not apologize for their insult to  Britain. Whereupon the commandant triced him uo and -<:ave him 50  lashes. Magee took his punishment  without wincing, though he fainted  at the end.  Needless to say. I'.rilain put her  foot down -very abruptly. One thousand dollars a lash was the price  exacted, and so scared was Barrios,  the President, that ho gave tho consul the privilege of building a  and collecting tolls. When Mr.  gee died a year ago his estate  valued  at a million.  "KING OF VALOUR"  is the name Madrid has given to  Tancrodo Lopez. Apprentice to a  shoemaker four years ago, he is..now  getting S-J200 apieco for live bull  lights a week, which makes his yearly income a trifle over $50,000.  Dressed in white, he stands in the  contre of the arena, while the savage  black Andalusinn bull charges furiously at him with lowered horns.  Everybody expects to see him hurled,  a. mangled corpse, info the air. Instead,  the bull  invariably turns off,,  and passes him. It is said that he  does not know what fear is, and that  this property gives him his extraordinary power over even the bravest  beast that lives.  . George Bristow, the'platinum millionaire, who died a few months ago  in Paris, started out in 1S73 with" a  prospecting party of four men across  the Moja.ve Desert to look for gold.  The heat was fearful. dust-storms  constant, water scarce. There was  no sign of precious metal, and all  but, Bristow  BECAME  DISCOURAGED.  One day they came to a terrific  gorge, running north and south as  far as the eyo could see. There was  no way of crossing it. Bristow's  companions insisted on turning back.  Bristow was loft alone, with very  little food, on the edge of the chasm,  lie sot to woVk to find a. j"-lace where  descent was possible. A day of .  hard walking. and at nightfall he ,  came'to a break in the wail. After a  climb down two thousand feet of  almost sheer piccipice. ho reached  tho stream which ran at tho bottom.  There ho camped. Next day he found  the lode of gold and pl--������i.imim which  has since made his  name famous.  When he attempted to reascend the  gorge walls, he found the task impossible. He was forced to travel  down the river to its mouth. His  adventures wore endless. Forced to  swim rapids, battered on rocks, living on mosses and crayfish, he noyer  despaired, and arrived safely, three  weeks . later, at Merriton. at the  mouth of the stream. Bristow's estate was valued at his death at  513,500,000.  Diver Smetton earned ������40,000 by  a plu-;ky piece of wark. He was tho  man chosen to explore the'wreck of  the "Esmeralda," which sank, witih  aboard   her,: off   Gibraltar  in  -      125  FEET  Eight divers had  OF WATER,  tried the job,  the .depth  was ^promised  but  was too great.   Smetton  10 per cent, of     what  he could recover.   Smetton found the  vessel  lying  across  a sandbank.   Ho  ago she 'was obliged to use a blasting charge  "dearly   to get at,.the hold,  which  was choked  by wreckage.   Going down  again  after  the explosion,  he reached   xhe  hold, when the vessel suddenly broke  in twe  and   the diver sank to      the  bottom      of MO      feet of  water,   a  depth at which a-diver'can. ordinarily work for only six minutes at     a  time,  owing to  tho pressure.  As he fell a piece of timber fell  upon him. broke his lifeline. and  rendered him unconscious, lie lay  for over an hour at the bottom before his companions managed to rescue him. Yet, not in the least  daunted by this.awful experiencew he  went down again the very next day,  and eventually recovered $400,000.  When paid his share he abandoned  his work, and is now living happily  in Palermo.   f ~  A RECOGNITION OF ABILITY.  cv-  end  pier  Ma-  was  "That prying Mrs. Peek sees  erything that goes on from one  of the neighborhood  to the other."
