He bad made  his way in the world by the doggodest  obstinacy���������seizing hold of whatever  came his way, and retaining hold, as  though life depended upon it.  Snellen had one son���������a handsome,  clear-headed young man���������straight as a  young larch, tall and as tenacious in  Ills way, when he chose to ,have one,  as old Dick himself. This son, as he  grew up, had proved a groat assistance to hie father in .-, working the  farm, and his services had been made  the most of.  The old man managed to keep him  ������t home with him some'time.after he  ought to have been doing for himself.  Not an'acre of his father's possessions  was ever called "his son's; he owned  nothing, save a horse, which some  neighbor had given him when it was a  beU^ling !o0L%������Sekenvde1n' thtaS^ wheeSV������ Mr* She,len and fair*  to his father's ro\igh manner He re- | iTis tru^fl^ ,lttd* in*������ ������������������������**-  pea tod what he had said before as- if- fL+ th,at ,she shook her Lead  suring her that it would be of no use I shocked*1   r.an������.look?d      -ondrously  to see his father.  The girl stood for a moment.  ���������'If,you please, sir, I'll,just see him  a   moment.      Belike he-may   take    a  likin' to the look of me."  ������,And before,ho could reply-  she had  crossed the room and stood upon   the  threshold of the next.     Henry followed presently, curious to see what kind  of a reception she would got.  "Shure, an' I'll be worth a lot to  yoes," she was saying, with innocent  emphasis, as Henry entered.  She talked rapidly, pouring out such  a torrent of words that thp. old man  could not by any possibility slip one in  among them, and sat regarding her  with an expression of the most ludicrous astonishment.  This remarkable volubility completely   baffled  th cold  man's  slowness.  He could not say a-word now it he  wished to; and she concluded with "I  oan bake bread that'd bring the very  ������.yes out iv yer head and make ye  swally/ yer tongue with delight."  ��������� He could only twirl his thumbs in a  sort of ridiculous awe, and asked her,  with a,sudden smile, how much she expected "to get for doing all these  things."  Tho end of it was that her services  Bickly   colt,  and  some  sheep obtained I ��������� ftCCBPted Md "** b������e��������� W������Ck at  in much the same manner; and the old I    Henry  man grudged him the keeping of these.  Shellen and his son differed often,  but there were two points in which the  difference amounted to  Bcrious.'      The  first  point  something  concerned  deliberated - and furtively  watched her. For some time she  seemed unconscious of his scrutiny;  but presently she turned, and clasping both her little hands on top of  the   broom  handle,  said,  with  a mix  ture of bravado and archness too na-  f������������������_i j._ i-       ...  education, for which the old man had   tural to he mistaken:  ^1. ��������� . - *..*VA .MX7..11 TT.  the most profound contempt, and the  son    had    not.     There was a college  : some  dozen  miles from   the  Shellen  farm, and thither���������having thoroughly  prepared himself in spite of fatherly,  thwarting  and opposition���������Henry  betook himself, and by one contrivance  and another, and helped ;by: his mother's   small i marketing,   kept   himself  there for several months.  The second point was not likely to  ���������'be so easy of arrangement.  At college Henry had" found  thing  besides scholastic honors.     He  had    chanced   upon  a very   charming  combination of curls and azure eyes,  a  red-lipped,    dimpled-cheeked    fairy,  daughter of one of the professors who,  instead of curving her dainty lip at  the home-spun suit which his poverty  and  his , father's niggardliness  compelled him to wear, never seemed to be  conscious of anything or anybody else  when he was near. -  In short, Henry had found some one  to love, some one that he wanted to  marry, as he gravely informed his  father.1 You should have seen the  old man's eyes; it was a mercy they  were fast in their sockets. . "Marry a  girl  student���������it  was ridiculous 1"  "And pray what harm is there in  being    a . girl    student ?  Well, Henry,/what do you think t"  The young man laughed and looked  annoyed in the same breath.  "Then it is you, Bertha," he said;  "I was suspecting something of the  sort.*'  "Not,till I looked at you," eaid tbe  girl, roguishly retreating as he approached.  "Do   you   thinik  Bertha i  it quite   the thing,  Shure, an' why ain't, it the thing  for a poor girl to be gettin' -her living  dacently and honestly ?"  ������������������ And that was all he could get out of  her. Having acknowledged her  some-I identity with Bortha, for an instant,  she was the most unapproachable Biddy the'next, and would have nothing  to say except in that character. I  "Does your father know of this,  Bertha % What would he say ?" persevered Henry.  "Shure, an' it's iny own fadder would  be intefeirin,, wid me, would he P" said  Biddy.  In vain were all remonstrances  with the roguish and willful girl. She  persisted in being Biddy, even to him,  and maintained a distance between  them very different from ithjat bfe*-  tween hkn and Bertha in her  It was so charming to have  those little soft hands fluttering  about her and to see such brightness  a/nd .comfort spring up around, that  she could not, for her own sake, help  countenancing,' as much as silence  could, Biddy's mysterious presence.  Having made a good beginning, Biddy established herself in a short time  completely in the good graces of tho  old' man.  He had a lurking fondness for neatness; and good.order, and Mrs. Shellen,  poor woman, wasn't a very tidy housekeeper. Under the now reign order  grew out of chaos; tho house seemed  in holiday garb all tho time, and an  atmosphere of social cheerfulness pervaded everywhere.  : One morning, Biddy had said some  thing  the     '       '   "  ondi  Heruy a wim "1 never see no good come  of eddioation yot. If it hadn't been  for that college business you might  have taken a liking to a sensible girl  and she to you."  He glanced at Biddy as he spoke. She  turned scarlet and came near dropping  the dish she was holding. It was not  the-first time Henry had hoard such  insinuations, and he rather enjoyed  Biddy's trepidation.  "Look here, father." said Henry,  smiling maliciously, "just pick me out  a wife, and see'what will come of it."  "The only girl I know of worth having wouldn't have you, I dare say���������  would you, Biddy?" i Shellen said,  grumblingly, but suddenly; turning'to  the girl, Bridget O'Flynn, who had kept  Bertha's lover at a tantalizing and unrelenting distance all that tirne.  He was taking his revenge now.  Making ; a desperate effort, .Biddy  rallied her confused senses to'say,  with   considerable self possession:  "Shure, sir, it isn't myself that'll be  after having any man till I'm .'asked?"  "Biddy,   will  you ; marry  me ?"' said  "Bertha," suggested the girl, quietly.  "Yes, come buck; and the'sooner the  better. There, Henry, make the most  on'tl"  Bertha did'come back, in a very few  weeks, too, and nobody was gladder to  see, her than old Shellen, though1 he  was a little shy at first of Professor  Halnistead's girl. ,She soon made him  forget everything save that she was  Henry's wife ; and the way he'humored  the sly puss to sundry grantsof money i  refurnishing and repairing, I couldn't I  begin to tell.

Who  cooks for you now that your mother  is ill ?"  "We do our own cooking," Henry said,  with a return of the half-smiling,  half-embarrassed expression. "We  cook for ourselves or do without."  The very day succeeding the one  which witnessed ' this conversation  HeDry was at home busying himself  over some culinary operations, when  the outside door, which stood ajar,  was noiselessly pushed wide open and  a singularly attired form presented itself on the threshold. It wore ,a red  and green plaid dress, the checks very  large, a yellow shawl and a very tumbled white bonnet. A red feather,  nearly as long as his arm, streamed  from one side.  The face, what could be seen of it,  was a very curious one to bo inside  such a bonnet, Just now, as she  surveyed th ekitchen and Henry, herself unseen, the muscles about her  mouth twitched nervously and her  eyes twinklod/with roguish brightness.  Presently Henry looked that way.  Instantly the face took a lugubrious  length, and, coming from the room,  the girl said, hesitatingly, but without looking at him:  "An would ye be afther employing a  servant the day ?" and stood fidgeting  with the fringe of her shawl.  "'I believe not," said Henry, coloring with some annoyance, perhaps, at  the  nature of his employment.  "Shure, sir, and the lady that sint  me said you'd be shure to take me on  her recomsnendation, which I has in  my pocket, and here 'tis now."  She gave hian a note which proved  to be from Miss Halmstead. Henry  read it with very lover-like carefulness! but shook his head.  "I'm very sorry, my good girl, but  we do not wish to hire a servant."  "Belike your   father mayn't  object  when he sees me," the girl persisted.  '.   Henrv looked at the soiled white hat  and red feather and repressed a smile,  wondering what his father would say.  an isolated, inhospitable manner that  very few of their neighbors even knew  Mrs. Shellen was not as well as usual.  Biddy, as she called herself, had tidied  the poor lady up in a wonderful manner.  Shellen  spread  and  askance  sat    down  _. to the daintily  ,d table and made a most hearty  keenly relished meial, glancpng,  askance, at Biddy meanwhile. Henry,  strange.to say, ate very little, and he  watched Biddy askance, too..  This was only the beginning of reforms this darling girl instituted.  First,: however,'for her own peace of  mind as well as Henry's���������knowing  'hat mother and son were fast friends  and   always  of one  opinion���������she   told  and, deliberately taking off her .cap,  sho'ok her>bi4ght ourls all about her  face, and,? reaching" toward him her  little hand, said: ;  "Sure, sir, an' ye won't be afther  hating a poor girl because her name's  Bertha Halmstead instead of Bridget  O'Flynn?"  ...  "You���������you   Professor     Halmstead's  girl?",  "Professor Halmstead is my father,"  said Bertha in her natural voice.  "What's  that?"  Bertha  repeated it.  "And you're not Irish ?"  "Niver a bit I" '���������  The  old  man  stood' for  a  clouds gathering in his face.  "Well, Henry," he eaid, rather'sourly, "you' have outwitted me again;  much good may it do you. You had  better get out the horses now and take  Htilmstead's girl homo. He must  want to see hrir by thistime."  . "Yes, sit." And Henry colored with  mingled   anger  and  amazement.   -.'���������'  Bertha did not change countenance,  however. Extending that pretty hand  of hers, she said, sweetly:  "You'll shake hands with me, sir?"  Shellen turned back and gave his  hand awkwardly. The girl took it in  both hers, bending her bright, arch  face toward him, saying:  "1 shall come back some time, sir.  Will you bo glad to see me ?"   ;  Shellen   hiumnied  and  hawed,    and  stammered  out at  last:  "Ye���������es ; come back, Biddy���������I mean  Miss O'Flynn���������I mean Miss���������'   '���������'.  turous ttiere.

It was  named after the: surveyor. Its alti-  tiude is 5,01)0, loet above the. sea. In  twelve years the finest and largest  city in South Africa'has sprung up on  the bare mountain' side, and the hills  have been lihedi with the huge chimneys, the reservoirs, the engine sheds,  the stamping houses and the offices  of great works that employ GO.OOO. native' miners and 10,000 Europeans.  Fifteen years ago ������10,000 at the outside would have, bought fromthe burghers that entire group of farms that  is now valued, tit ������3(10,000,00(1. { The  gold finds ofj the Witwatersrand were  followed by others, within the Transvaal's borders���������;at De Kaap, at' Zout-  L'pansberg, in the northeast mountains;  a,t Ljdedaburg, in the same- direction ;  at Malmani, on the BeohUanaland border; at Klerk'sdorp and at Heidelberg.  All of< these'.develop gold in well pay- -  ing quantities.  ENORMOUS DIVIDENDS PAID.  , Tlie capital of the 198 goldmines  working at the end.of 1897 was $303,-  803,750. Of these twenty-eight mines,  wiiii a capitalization of nearly ������50,000,-  000, paid $14,750,000, in dividends, or  nearly .'thirty ipor cent. Sixty-four  other mines were producing gold, hut  paying no dividends,' and the remain-  -der was in course of being opened. .Tho  total value of- the gold yield in 1897  Was ������58,520,000, an increase of fifleuu  millions over fhe year before.  Nevertheless1, there were great losses-  during 1851.7, due to unsci'upti.oua  siwcutation, more than four hundred  companies having been formed for  stock jobbing purposes in localities  where no gold existed. Some weak  campunies went to the wall, also.  In 1898 the 198 companies had decreased 1.0 137,; but those paying, divi-  deiads had increased from twenty-eight  in 1897, to forty-five. Those forty-  five companies paidi dividends of $25,-  448,925 on a, capital of ������101,473,375, or  something more than twenty-five per  cent. , '..-,''  "It is a  curious    anomaly,"   -wrote  Major Ricarde-Seaver, in 1891, "to see,  at the end' of the nine teenier century,  a minority of fifteen thousand burghers, all told,) ruling a majority of six-   ;  ty thousand enlightened,, wealthy and  prosperous aliens, who although they  possess the richestj and.most valuable  portion, of the country, have no voice  in its management.   *   The franchise  must be extended to all qualifying for  citizenship, and when this is done, the  Outlanders, as ai class, will ceaso   to  exist.   Theyj will become citizens, and  the control of the State will pass into  the hands of the majority, or in other  words, 'the Awjlo-Saxon race."  $������  ������  ?v       "       s'    ,���������>-;-���������>��������� i .v.1-.*:- ���������-.���������-!   i ."j ��������������� ���������,    ^ ���������!.. \-~-i .i- ���������-(, - .-"-i"-'. v  - /i  i-"-..'i������ >\j-"'ji.*...-'    -\ -t-.y, ���������������.-.*.,;. v.^.i-.

The novelist ia kept hustling in his  research concerning things psychical  these days. A half century ago, when  it was his agreeable, task to portray  the-demeanor of,a love-sick maid, and  when was that not tho case, we should  like to know, what was his usual procedure? Didn't ho seat her at a table  where lay a piece of work which needed a button hole ���������' a neat little business, prosupposing concentration and  subversive of ronaanco? He gets his  maiden to say "Heigh ho" if she has  rosy cheeks and her curls are insecurely fastened in a net; if she is a.lily  maid, with Cupid's bow lips, they form  the more elegant expletive of "Alas!  alas!" while she pushes away her work  lunguidly.  And then this composite photograph  of the novelist's women goes to her  desk, where lie three unanswered  letters, and she toys with her wafers  and bites the nib of her quill pen in  the- abstraction which is incident to  love. Sometimes she seizes one of  these letters and presses ,it passionately to her lips before secreting it in her  gown, as close as possible to the organ  that is throbbing with tho most approved sentiments of the period. Sometimes, too,.a high resolve lighting her  pure face, she .draws toward her the  silver oandlestick and snuffers, her  hand trembles as she lights the' beautiful toy, but without shrinking she  watches the black flakes fall, mourners of that happy hope that once was  here.  The scribe of that time, you see, was  a baby. He could push himself just  ������o far in his littlo go-cart, and no one  expected more of him. Entrance toward the bogs or preoipices of- psychological investigation would have elict-  ed shrioks of horror from the fond  nurses and mothers ���������I that is to say,  the readers of polite literature" of that  day. It waa not until',ho grew big  enough to admire Gwendolen Grand-  court that he.stepped out on hi3 own  little legs and told her what he  thought of her.  The readers of polite literature adjusted themselves with half anxious  half eager interest, ready to lift up  warning fingers, and yet edified by his  boldness. Long, long ago they had recognized the futility of coercing the  little man, so that now they wander  with him, oompanionably and without  reproach, over the England of Thomas'  Hardy, and don't mind the mud that  collects on their boots when they can  loarn something new "in Zolaland."  .Which excursions are pleasant enough  ���������for tho mothers and, nurses. The  novelist has had a hard time to make  fluch,fields traversable; nor is ho content to let Gwendolen's nose turn .up  INGERSOLL   MAN  Can Do More Work on me  Farm  Than His Twenty-Four Year  Old Son.  For Thrre or Fonr Yc.tr* at One Time lie  W������w Toe Weak to Work at All���������Disabled With Kidney IHmr.no-  Oodd'x Kidney Fills Gave  Illm Ills Present  Strength.  Ingersoll, Nov. G.���������We have a man in  Lb.is district who is a remarkable example of the adage, "Health and  strength go as a pair." He is a imid-  dle-aged man in perfect health, and  glories in- hia strength. Yet some  years ago he used to. be aa weak and  helpless as a kitten.  Mr. W. H. Bailey lives on lot' five  on the town line between Derluim and  West Oxford. He is a farmer by occupation and well known throughout  tho district. For years Mr. Bailey  was a victim of Kidney Disease which  sapped his strength. lie was not a  believer in patent medicines, but he  tried all the doctors in Ingersoll without avaiK Then he took threo boxes  of Dodd's Kidney Pills and became a  whole, sound man once more. To so  great an oxtent did he gain in  strength that in spite of his years he  could overmatch his grown-up son, a  big  strapping  man  of   twenty-four.  Mr. Bailey says: "For years I have  been troubled with Kidney Diseaso, being so bad ar times that I could do  nothing. I had tried all the doclors  in this town but they would have put  me in my grave. I took three boxes of  Dodd'3 Kidney Pills and ,ami now able  to do more work than my twenty-fouT  year old son."   .  WHEN LONDON SLEEPS.

The novelist pulls off his gloves these  days and he /would better, for it takes  a naked deftness to form types and  incarnations and symbols, when the  'prentice' work that turned out plain  men and women no longer suits a generation that is ready, for its man with  all the rules ' of psychbmetry. The  ftuestion of human love* enters just as  fully into the novel of to-day as it  did 50 years ago,, with this difference;  it is falling into, the' hand's'of'special-  bits; it is shown in its infinite prisma-  tio lights from; the red1 to the lowest  animal passion in which grovel Ee"  beoca West, Dr. Pascal and Kipling's  sunken scholar, to the other end where  it shades off from the blue that lends  its luster to the true eyes of Evadne  to the silver,white which bathes the  head of Balzac's saint.  We have love presented to ua as a  disease which is germinally, present in  tho most enraptured lover's kiss; some  transcendentalist or other whispers his  conviction that it is an essence, concentrated and precipitated fortuitously  Neo Buddhism and other, cults of that  ilk assert that every lover is an Avator  of Spirit, and that his involuntary  function brings extrinsic salvation;  alienists tell us dreadful things about  its repression and license, and all of  these have some representation in the  modern novel. , Oh, for the "good old  times when tho lover's smile at us out  of "happiness ever after;" or thrill us  .with the nobility of> their grandiloquent renunciation, without being  merely "facades of a temple" whoso  interior is the recondite subtlety of the  modern Zeit:Creist, when we could toll  the plot in words, of less than four  syllables, albeit in many words.  In this day of effete' culture not  only the scribe has-to open his metaphysical dictionary while he poises his  pen over the well that has truth at the  bottom of it, sometimes, but madam  as well, his professional sine qua non  is fain to send to the library her companion, Miss, Theosophia -Sophistry,  Ph.D., for the volume of Hegel, I'ichte  Kant or the Great,' Currant Magazine'  without which she will not be prepared  to discuss the New Novel.  And so on.

'GbeflMninglRevfew  , SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1SJS99.  AN EXPLANATION.  The Nelson Tribune is  terribly exercised   over   the impression   that,   the  mine owners  nre going  to start stores  in some of the towns of tho Slocan, to  operate  against   some of tho  dealers  who nrc unfriendly  to them.   We  do  not know that there is a word of truth  in the report, anil if it were all truth, it  would  bo only   serving   some  of the  dealers right.   There is scarcely a town  in  the Slocan, you may go into that  you will not find   some   storekeepers  and   saloon-keepers   sitting   at   their  doors on boxes or stools inflaming  the  minds ol* Coeur d'Alene dynamiters (as  it is unfortuna'e that while the bulk of'  the miners   aro   calm,   sensible men  there are always some of the element  present) against the owners itnd urging  "������3.50 for eight hours for all."   It  appears to us that it is just as reasonable  for tho owners to advise the men that  "'the merchants should sell Bocks for 10  cents 11  pair   and  the saloon-keepers  should bell whiskey at 5 cents a glass,  ns it is for cither class of bu=inc-ss people to take sides in  this issue.     Abstractedly  it should bo bnl a business  proposition between owners ami men  and   woujcl be only   that but for   the  infamous legislation Hying in  tho face  of,the owners.     We today   challenge  the   press���������of   the     Nelson   Tribune  stripe���������the   members   of   parliament  who supported.the measure, any of the  ."���������trr-ot. corni'i  politicians or   drygoods-  box or.itors to point to  a parallel   in  crookedness to  this   n.-hirions   cnncl -  went in the history of conMitutional  government in any country.  Inspired by  a few aliens   (and the  Tribune docs not like the name) who  live by their wits, the mineis of Rossland   induced their member,  when  a  candidate, to promise to introduce an  eight-hour law,   which,   in   tho form  passed, was not announced until three  days before the close of tlie session.   If  the parents of that amendment did not  intend to smuggle it through in deception   and   fraud   why   were   not   the  amendments,  as  passed, 'incorporated  in   trio  Bill   when   first   introduced?  .   That   is  a  question the people  want  (satisfactorily   answered.    Here is an  -act passed through deception and trick-  - ery  in the highest sense giving  class  legislation for tho sole purpose of making votes  for   the government party.  It perpetrates   a travesty on   British  UElice, if not. a fraud on   one class ol  the community, and for the sole purpose of gaining fayor with the class it  is calculated  to serve,   and men  who  should be supposed to be independent  are toadying to it.  The proper consideration in no way  involves the question of an eight-hour  law as such or the right of good men  to   d3.50 a day,   it only embraces  the  motives of the men who passed it, and  its consequences in the country.   The  people of any and every country have  the right to say whether or not. they  shall have an eight-hour law ;  but before forcing one on them with all the  viciousness of class legislation, statesmanship would say  they have a right  to be consulted.   In what way   were-  they   consulted   before  this  act   was  passed ?   In what way were the people  advised the deception   was   even contemplated,   when     the    House   met ?  before   the   press of the- country was  even advised   the fraud  was   contemplated.   To say nothing of the reprehensible sectionalism of   the measure  thsre   is  no   defending   the stealthy,  fraudulent maimer in which it was introduced and smuggled, through.    It  appears to us that if many of the parrots-throughout the country who prate  so glibly about "the eight-hour law"  and the right of miners  to 83.50 a day  under it, would only look a little more  carefully-into, the exceptionally fraudulent manner in which the enactment  was placed on   the statutes  and   then  cultivate a little respect'for honorable  ��������� methods   in   legislating,- they   would  have   something with  which to pick  their teeth-.  We believe that most of the people  ' ol'  the  country,   whose   opinions   are  -worth considering, would be glad to see  goodminers getting. ������3.50 a day, and  for eight hours   except under specially  J'oAr6rable conditions; but they.also respect that British spirit of fair play to  all classes that forces injustice on none  'h'rongh   the', jiistoi route.

The regulation of a standard day could do no more harm than  the regulation of a standard minute or  hour, if uniuaooiated with vicious conditions that deprive adults of their  persona) liberty. With an eigh hour  law without, penalties,' tho owners  would be as powerless'to extract 9 or  10 hours work from tlie men, if tlie  latter did not want to put it in, as they  now are'to draw lightning from the  moon, and what more could tlie men  desire.  la tors, that live by their wits, reducing  the earning capacity of miners by 20  per cent.   The Star here,  before closing offered themen under thia SO per  cent of former work ?3.25,or 93 per cent  of former pay, and at tlie instigation of  tlie union   this   liberal offer   was   rejected.   The owners  now say, what is  common sense, that had this oiler hern  accepted it would have been a basis of  settlement all  around.   Many of  the  owners too   say that if  $1.00 a day is  too much for board, the men  can rent  their boarding houses and board themselves.   These are  the circumstances  on the one side." The owners,  to keep  their mines running and meet  the necessities of   the. country as   they   see  them, attempt to import, not alien nor  worse, Italian, but Canadian labor, and  the unions set to work to defeat them.  They send out men the country over,  where labor is supposed to be had, urging miners to stay  away.   Is it  then  human nature, or is it not, for the owners to resort to another course in retaliation?   That is tho way we put it���������  from an owners point of view and not  from  our own.   The writer has before  now heard the Silvertonian editor say  the eight-hour law should never have  been passed.   If that is his honest conviction why does  he not so express it,  and endorse all   Tho Review has ever  said, instead   of remaining   behind a  screen catering to a sentiment.  WHAT EIGHT?  '  Here are a few questions for those  who nre stuck on the eight-hour law to  answer. f  What.right has any. legislature to  single out any section of the community and give them special legislation ?  To give   miners underground   shorter! Monal capacity  hours than miners on surface work?  To give men in minii.g tunnels shorter  hours than it gives men in railway  tunnels ?  What right has it to limit the earning power of any section of the people  as this law" d^. es ?  What right has it to pre\enfc two  men from making a contract mutually  advantageous, when there is no one  else interested or affected thereby.  What right has it to pass tlie most  important enactment over passed in  the country without giving the people  the slightest notice of it's intention till  the deed was done? '  Straight answers to these have nothing to do with whether there.ahould or  there should not be a proper eight-  hour law in B. C, or whether miners  should get $3 or $4 a day:       1 '-,   .  If the Nelson Tribune   only had intelligence equal to its \cn0111. it would  be a power in the land.   In its issue of  the 30th, it attacks Mr. F. A. Wood, of  tlie Last Chance, as an alien manager.  Ever since the editor of  the Tribune  failed to make a success of business in  the States,  he has beon>adly afllicted  with alien  nphobia.   The fact of the  matter is that Mr. Wood is a born and  bred   British subject,   and never oven  attempted, as the Tribune man did, to  do business across  the lines,   though  lie spent some years there in a profes  While on the subject,  The   country  woman is usually  *.**���������> .vV^JV healthy   and   robust.

I He trouble with too many country women is that they do not sufficiently realize  the! supreme importance of keeping- healthy  111 a womanly way.     A woman's" general  health cannot be good if ahe suffers   from  local weakness and disease.    If she suffers  111 tliis way, the strongest woman will soon  break down and  become a weak, sickly  nervous, complaining invalid.

This thing of misrepresenting-  papers for prejudicial purposes is growing -wearisome. The Eeview has never  opposed a proper eight-hour law; it  never said that the. miners' earning?  8b.6u.ld be limited to S3 a day, and lastly it has never advocated Italian labor  or foreign labor of "any kind. It is a  much more difficult task for some of  these prints that advocate "compromise, or settlement" to square themselves with consistency.

TATTRIE.  Will the Nelson Tribune or some of  these apostles ol righteous labor show  why miners are moro .to be cared for  than other classes of the community���������  why; they are prevented from working  longer than eight hours underground,  whiie(.others may work as long as they  like? At the present,there is a tunnel  being driven on the C. P. E., between  Robson and Grand Forks, over a mile  in length, and many railroaders are  working there ten hours a day. .The  question is, why are they hot, and  many of them are net aliens either, let  off with eight hours work as well as  miners ? Is it because they have not  as many votes as the latter?      '  We have asked the.Nelson'Tribune a-  couple of times to show us how, if the  eight-hour law .was without .penalties,  the owners could compel the miners to  work longer than eight-hours a day if  they did not want to do it,- aud as.yet  we are without an answer. We have  also asked it to'show, one valid reason  why a strong, sensible, steady manf who  wanted to work 9 or 10 hours, and  found the conditions favorable for it,  should not be allowed to do; so, if he  found a man willing to pay him satisfactorily for over time.  Eczema, or Salt Rheum as it is  often called, is one of the most  ag-onizing- of skin, diseases, nothing  but torture during- the day and twofold torture at nig'ht.

Mrs. Mcl'herson, of th" Leland liotel  Nakusp, has a proposition to before  those of the public who have- a little  money for safe investment, that demands a little attention. She, hns one  of the best hot water mineral springs,  about seven miles from her hotel, to be  found anywhere in tlie province. It  has been fully tested and nnalysed.and  ' found to possess many medicinal qualities Jacking in other springs in the  country. Her commodious hotel at  Nnkusp .was built specially for a- summer resort and sanitarium, having all  the necessary appointments and requirements. Tho idea is to bring down  the water by pipe, which would have a  sufficient-head for tlie purpose, and  convert her property into a sanitarium  and summer resort. There is not a  better adapted property in the whole  county, and with a stock company _ic  would not take much .capital to do it.  The citizens of the town would take a  considerable slice of the stock. She is  ready to receive propositions from  parties who think well-of the project.  Unwilling to  Bear Their Share,  The cheek of fire insurance companies is crowing next thing to unbearable. Because some municipalities  threaten to tax them .they propose to  advance their rates. There is scarcely  n fire insurance company, doing business in Canada for any length of time,  that hos not made .more money than  all the mining companits of the Slocan  put together, and yet they refuse to  pav taxes. The only sensible way out  of "this is legislation that will enable  municipalities to do their own insuring,  and when this is once commenced tho  chartered comuanies will soon fall on  their knees. Although but few risks  have been taken in S-uidon, ten times  more money has been paid in premiums than ' would coyer all the fire  loises the place ever had; and the  same is true of mo^t other places in  Canada,- enabling tho companies to  paj fat salaries to their officers, and  make big money for shareholders out  of loans from surpluses.

A''3  ft.  i The recent death of Cornelius Varider bllt was not merely tho passing of  the chief of the richest family in Am-'  erica. It furnished the climax of a  drama of extraordinary human interest.  The. theme of this drama is tho most  oncicnt and classical known to tho novelist  and dramatist.  It is the drama of the rich, stern father, who loves his children bur. seeks  to enforce his wishes in their love affairs; of the son and heir, who submits  to disinheritance and estrangement in  order to marry the woman . of his  choice, and of the final reconciliation  whon the father is on his deathbed.  The circumstancos in this drama, of  real life were in many respects more  impressive and thrilling vhan they  have over been on the stage or in f ic-<  lion. The father was rich beyond the  dreams 'of avarice, rich' to a degree  that an author would hardly daro to  represent. He was also more un-  acountably obdurate than any literary-  prototype, for no stem father of fiction ever objects to a daughter-in-law  who is rich, beautiful and a leader of  and rather slender. Hia features indicate considerable strength; ��������� of char-  actor. One peculiarity of them is that  the eyelids have a slant .which is al-t  most Chinese.  Ho graduated from Yale in 1895, and  his own family and tho world oxpected  that he would" at, once enter upon the  career which was to culminate in his  control of the New York Central Railroad and a score of others that are connected with it.  But Cupid judely disturbed that carefully laid family and business scheme  "While at college young Vanderbilt had  experienced a growing attachment to  Miss Grace Wilson, the pretty daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. Richard T. Wilson.-  After he left college this feeling developed readily irflo ardent love, and he  spent every moment he could in tho  society   of his adored.  His father then warned him, that he  would never consent to his. marriage  with Miss Wilson. The s.n replied  that he loved her, and that she hadl all  the best qualities that a girl could  have. There were various reasons  suggested for Cornelius Vanderbilt's  uncompromising opposition to Miss  Wilson. At this time young Vandor-  bilt was only just twenty-one years  old, while Miss Wilson was at. least  eight, years older, having been in so-i  ciety many seasons. At' any rate,  the older Vauderbilt insisted that she  was absolutely unfitted to be a wife  for his soa.  Judging from past events, young  Vanderbilt's fate, was sealed from the  moment the Wilscn3 desired to admit  him to their family, circle, for Mrs.  Richard T.

Wilson for ������1,000, which he said the banker promised him for endeavoring to  track the writer of the anonymous letters. Sugden was afterward, arrested for robbing Mr. Wilson. The afCair  was involved in much' mystery, which  has  never been entirely  cleared  up.  Cornelius Vanderbilt, tho elder,  slowly struggled back to life, but his  right side rbinainod partially paralyzed. He could never again take charge  of the numerous affairs which he had  formerly directed. His attitude/ toward his son remained unchanged, and  ho did not meet the latter until more  than two years    after his marriage.  It was announced -| that Alfred  Gwynne Vanderbilt, the second surviving son, would be the prin-ipal heir  to the fortune. An entertainment waB  given in Newport last summer to celebrate his coming of age, and, although  the disinherited brother was in the  same little town, he was not even asked. This year young Alfred started  on a luxuriouss voyage around , the  world, and was h-nored as the prospective head of the house.  A baby was born to Mr. and Mrs.  Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr., nearly two  years ago, but, although they .named  him Cornelius in honor of his grandfather, that did not soften the latter's  heart. During the past-year, however, a partial reconcllaticn was effected. Father and son met in Newport  and New York, and were on kindly  terms once more, but the father would  not admit of the slightest reconciliation with his daughter-in-law. ft is  understood that tho son will receive a  handsome fortune under his father's  will, but he will still be regarded as  having been doposed from the leadership of the family.  About a year ago the elder Crone-  lius Vanderbilt was attacked by a second stroke of apoplexy.^ Although it  was very slight, it was a warning that  the end was likely to come at any  moment from this disease. It came at  last so suddenly that a doctor could  not reach the house before tho patient  died.  Young      Cornelius  -Vanderbilt   had  He. is of South"   been' yatching   at Newport the day bo-  tio is or oouin- . for(j  Mg father diedj ^ as soon   as he  heard tho newss ha Hastened to tho  great house on Fifth] avenue, which  he had not entered since his marriage, and helped to comfort his mother. Thus death threw its mystery  over the final act of the' drama.  HOW TEE RACES COMPARE  THE   BLACK "AND WHITE   POPULA-  ��������� TION IN AFRICA.

The  engagement was  announced  on  June  10, and  the wedding    fixed   for  June 18. Vanderbilt partisans remark  cerned in it, and the British aristocracy is not without personal interest  in it.  The hero of it, without question, is  Cornelius Van.lei bill, Jr. His attitudo  is ono that appeals    deeply    to   every  share in his father's untold millions in  order to marrj the woman ho loved.  He said:  "Father, I am going to marry this  girl, and the fact that I shall lose  S 100,000,000, or all the money in the  world for that matter, will not make  the   slightest difference to me."  High finance plays a part only secondary to love in this' drama.

When William II. Vanderbilt died,  in 183G, he lett ������10,0U0,i-00 apiece to each  of his eight children, and the residue  to the two oldest sons, Cornelius and  William K. They received in all about  ?GO,000,C0U apiece, Cornelius was already the richer, for he had inherited  his determination. These, threats had  absolutely no effect on the young  man, who said that no love that was  worthy of the name could be affeot-  ed by the loss of money or material  things., So deeply' did the father feel  on this matter that, although he  shrank from publicity, he gave out this  statement to tho newspapers:   ,  "The  engagement of C.  Vanderbilt,  Jr., is against his father's express wish  65,000,000 from his grandfather, the old j a'nd without his consent."  Commodore.

Voriy curious misconceptions a,ro  prevalent as to tho relative proportions of the black and, whitoi population of Africa, south and central. It  is, of icourpe, not possible to give with  any. accuracy, the numbers of natives  in those portions of tho center  of the vinst continent which have not  come under British control, either direct or indirect. These provinces remain practically in the stale in which  Livingstone and othen explorers found  them.  In South Afrjcit, however, and in  wha|b is known as British Central Africa, figures are obtainable which are  approximately roliable, thou'gh it must  always be boirho in mind that the  white population of a comparatively!  young and more or less unsettled continent is necessarily unstable, and inclined to shift frbrn ono center to ain-  other. ,    ,   ���������  In oveiiy case throughout South Africa the black population outnumbers  tho white t.o a greater or lesser extent;  in some instances the disproportion is  stupendous, as in Natal, Rhodesia, and  British Central Africa.1  The center of interost in the present juncture is naturally the Transvaal, where there are 850,000 natives  and 250,000 whites. The natives are  mostly corTfinod to the northern portions of the republic, the ZoutjKt,ns-  bei-g, Spelonken and Letaba districts,  and here,they live and thrive in their  thousands. The Witwatersrand mine  labor is largely supplied from these  districts, and the Transvaal government has its native commissioners  scattered throughout the country.  There is not very- much chance of  any serious danger to the Transvaal  from   the  natives   within' its borders.  SMALL SPORADIC UPRISINGS  might take place among the late Ma-  gato's men, and the tribea under M'pe-  fu'; but feenerally speaking, tho Transvaal natives are too downtrodden, bullied and cowed to offer armed inter-  feiflnce.  On the other htwnd, the Swazies con-  dependence.   They  are  loyal   to  England.  By a curious concatenation of events,  which is not1 wi,thouit its, beaming upon  the manner in which the Boers treat  natives, according to their immemorial! custom, the Orange Free State presents the nearest approach to equality, between the two races. Here there  are 200,000 natives and 80,000 white, or  a,bout two and a half to ono. There  is a lesson in this which may bear  evil fruit ,in the. near fu( ure.  The total white population of tho  whole of South Africa is approximately 820,000,- of which 432,000 may bo  elapsed as Dutch and 388,000 as English, in Bytnpalhy, at any rale, if not  by birth.  o   ���������*���������   KIMBERLEY'S VAST RICHES.

It is not a city  in the modern use of the word'. It is  a; great camp in which men's passions  rise and fall as the treasures of (ho  earth are uncovered or not found. The  camp is ia wha.1 i8 called the Vaal  Basin, the wash .ground of the river  which divides the Trajusvaal from the  Orange Free Stale. The first diamond  discoveries there were made about  1870, but it was ten years later when  Englishmen and otherp realized that  the spot was the most valuable of its  kind in  the world.  By 1881 the mines which ha,d been  opened had yielded gems to the value  of $20,000,000. By 1887 seven tons of  diamonds had .been taken out valued  at 6250,000,000. This record placed the  Brazil diamond mines in tho shade and  made Kimberloy world-wide in its  fame. The Cecil Rhodes syndicate,  known as the De Boeris, came into control of all the mines after much negotiation. This syndicate is capitalized  for ������75,000,000 and pays intorest at the  rate of 5 1-2 per cent, per annum and -  an annual- dividend of 20 per cent.  Since Cecil Rhodes came into control  of the.mines they have given out 2,-  500,000 karats of diamonds. To get at  these it has been necessary to wash  2,700,000 loads of tho blue earth in  which  they  are found.  In the working of these diamond  mines there are employed about 1,-  500 white men and 0,000 natives. Tho  greater proportion of these men are  em'ployed in the De Boejs and Kim-  berley mines '  TH'E  TWO BIGGEST  HOLES  which greedy man  has ever du'g into  tho earth.

Ho  was educated with endless  c'are.an I the  fact that he would have control of one  of the greatest fortunes  in  the world  was    constantly impressed    upon him.  His father looked with satisfaction on  his progress, for, while the young man  was nor brilliant he showed steadiness  and strength of    character. What; appeared particularly promising was his  love for mechanics, which he has never  lost.      He has  been   through  a    complete  apprenticeship in  the  yards    of  the New York Central Railroad, and is  to-day   capable of  fitting  a    complete  locomotive together.     This inclination  to  mechanics gave  an  assurance   that  he  would take a personal  interest in  the affairs of the great railroad he' was  to direct.

That began an angry discussion,  which only ended,in a , reiteration of  the son's determination to marry Miss  Wilson, and of the father' s determination to disinherit him.  Immediately after the interview the  father was attacked by a stroke of  apoplexy, which almost killed him at  the time, and which eventually led to  his death. , The emotionstof this painful meeting undoubtedly���������! brought on  the attack.  On August 3, 1890, whilo tho elder  Vanderbilt was still lying at death's  door, the! momentous ; wedding  took place. It was celebrated in the  Wilson house. No. 511 . Fifth avenue.  Not one of the Vanderbilt family ox-i  cept the bridegroom, nor any of their  relatives or near friends, were present.

Their thoughts flew  to Doctor, Richmond, so far away, and  they heartily desired his speedy return.  There was no time for consultation  between them. Mrs. Richmond, finding  the carriage at the door, insisted on  getting into it at once, and entreated Mr. Warrender not to accompany  them. She seemed so bent on it that  he was reluctantly obliged to consent,  but declared his intention of riding  over early in the morning to inquire  aftor  her.  "You are sure that it would not be  better' for me to fetch/ a doctor at  once?" he asked.  "A doctor?" cried Mrs. Richmond,  and her voice had'aniodd, almost hysterical ring in it. "What could a doctor do for me? I am, not ill at all���������I  merely got a chill in tho, garden.  Please do not let us delay."  lie stood baok to allow the carriage  to start, when she again leaned out. .  "Good-bye, Christopher!" she said. "I  have not thanked you for your kindness, but 1 do not' forgeti it. Good-by  ���������good-,by!"  Her words seemed to him in some  curious way to be a sort of farewell  for more than that day, and made him  feel as if the old life which stretched  behind him into such infinite distance,  with its cheerfulness and happy homeliness, were suddenly and .unaccountably over.  The next day Mr. Warrender rode  over eariy to the cottage. He reflected that on<.< good thing which- would  arise out of Mrs. Richmond's illness  was that Kilmeny would be obliged to  remain with her mother, and that no  visits to Mr.. 'Daryl would be possible  for the present. Ha was-struck with  astonishment therefore at the new developments which awaited him. Mrs.  Richmond was sitting in the little arbor on thei grass plot at the side (of  the house, and; except that she was  pale, ho could, not at a distance discern any difference in her appearance.  She was sewing, and he dismounted  and tied up his hirse in order to speak  to her.     lie could not see Kilmeny .  "You are better ?" he said, in a relieved  tone,  approaching  her.  "Yes, yes���������1 am quite well," she answered. 'Her voice sounded nervous,  and she hurriedi on as if ;to avoid any  closer ^questioning. "It is such a  lovely day that I thought 1 would sit  out of doors. The children have gone  off on a picnic, and do not expect <o  bo back until- the evening. I have a  good deal of; sewing to do, and shall  not have time   to nifss them."  "Have you written- to Doctor Richmond ?"  "I wrote this morning."  Mr. Warrender sat pondering. It  was plain, from Mrs. Ruchmond's writing to her husband, that there was  more amiss than she wished him to  know, but he felt debarred from further inquiry. Her manner had totally changed. It was, nervous and constrained, and for the first timo jn his  life he felt as if she wished him away.  Her mysterious illness in the garden,  which he had; expected to have completely explained during-his morning's  visit, was only rendered still more  mysterious. -  "I wonder that Kilmeny left you,"  he said abruptly. "Did she go with  the others ?"  "Kilmeny and all left me," she said,  trying to laugh. .: "There was absolutely no reason for their staying. I  atm quite well."  "I am glad you think' that you are  better," he said. "There is no use in  my staying any longer."   :  She did not try to detain him, and  he rode slowly, away. He was determined, to.see Kilmeny and to warn her  ���������that her mother's illness had not passed- away so wholly as Mrs. Richmond  seeaned anxious to. have them believe.  An hour's searching brought him to  the children, seated1 under the shade  of a tree by a little lake. They jumped up and. hailed his appearance with  delight.        .. ������ .;  "Where is Kilmeny?'' he asked, gazing around.  "Oh, she is not here !" answered Jessica, a pretty, girl of sixteen. "She  went off ta see old Mr. -Daryl as soon  as breakfast.was over. I am sure I  wish that she nad never, heard of hint!  She used to come everywhere with us,  a.nd now. this-is the second/"or third  time that she has gone to see him and  left us by ourselves."  "Gone to see Mr. Daryl 1" Chris re-,  peated in blank'- amazement, "Are you  sure?      How. do you know ?''  "I know quite well. A note came  from him to mamma, and she sent for  Kilmeny to her. own room. After- a  while Kilmeny came, out and said that  she was going to see him, and set off  i������ a grea.i(_hurry. She was laughing,  and seemed pleased. Wo wanted her  to wait for. the picnic, but she would  not."   And   the mater   told you    to  hold  your tongue about it. Miss Jessica,"  interposed Lancelot, "but girls never  can be quiet about anything,"  "She did not mean us not to talk  to Chris," his sister answered. "Wo  tell him everything. Do stay with us,  Chris, instead of Kilmeny, We are  all longing ta go out in tho boat, ibut  mnmma made us promise not to do so  even .under Launce's experienced  guidance."  Christopher good-naturedly consent-  t j ed, seeing their eagerness for his pres  racked his brains for a solution of the  puzzle. ��������� '  Altogether, Mr. Christopher War-  render's reflections were anything but  pleasing as he left the young Rich-  monds behind andj made his way towards evening in the direction of his  own home. He was too proud to fry  to find out any more about Mrs. Richmond's affairs after her very decided  action, but he suddenly felt very lonely as he entered the. house.  To Be Continued. i     ���������  MOTHER OF TWENTY-FIVE.  JIr-8.    Siii:irtiroo<l   Murrlcil   Twenty-Seven  Year-. Hits Twenty Living Children.  Mrs. Samuel Swartwood of Wilkes-  barre, Pa., ia the mother of the largest family in; the United States. Although a comparatively young woman  being only 41 years old, she is the  mother of twe.nty-five children, twenty of whom) are living. The youngest  is oinly a few days old, and gives promise of being, like his brothers and sisters, hale nndt heurty.  To be the mother of twenty-five children is no mean achievement, and  Mrs. Swartwood is^ proud of il. Her  children are her greatest blessing,  and, singularly enough, they are all  good, obedient children, without the  proverbial black sheep among them.  Mrs.  Swnttwood said:  "My children are my joy. Though  I have always.had a baby,"���������she laughed modestly���������"a'nd sometimes two to  look after, they never seemed to be  the trouble and worry some babies are.  My lust little one seems mpxi* cute  and sweet than any of the others, but  I suppose all babies seem interesting  when they are just born."  Mrs. Swa-ftwood is a remarkably  well-preserved woman. She was married when very young, and her first  baby was born fourteen months after  her marriage. There have been but  five years since, during which the  household has failed to be blessed with  a baby. These years were 1874, 1883,  1887, 1888 and 1896. But two of. them  were in succession, and in the succeeding years  twins were born.  Of the entire, twenty-five children,  there were but' the  , TWO SETS    OF   TWINS,  which were born in 1889, and 1893. One  of each    sell' of twins is dead.   . Mrs.  Swartwood can recite the hour and  day each  child was horn.  "Walter was our first child," she  said. "He was married, a little over a  year  ago.   He was  born  on June  25,  1872. Louis    caone   next   on  Sept. 9,  1873. Then came Thaddeus, -Jan. 6,  1875; Maude, who is married to Charles Heslog: aind/ has one child, Jan. 12,  187G ; Cora, Marohv 15, 1877; Blanche,  May 19, 1878; May, who is dead, on  May 20, 1879; Herbert, Aug, 21, 1880;  Warren, March 14, 1881; Elsie, April  27, 1882; Samuel, March 11, 1884; Daniel, Sept. 3r 1885; Ruth, Sept. 23, 1886;  Alonzo and. Gertrude, the first twins,  Jan, 20, 1889; Gertrude is dead; Elmer,  June 21, 1890; Calvin, July 31, 3891;  Florence, Nov. 19, 1892; Esther -.and  Benjamin, the second twins, on Dec.  31, 1893; Earl, March 29, 1895; Jesse,  May 3, 1896; Edith, June 8, 1897; Lottie, Septi 5|,. 1898 and our baby, which  was boruf on. Sept. 17 of this year."  Regarding her married |]ife,Mrs.  Swartwood said: "Iwas married  iwlhieln I--was fourteen years old. I loved Will wheinl cvvasa girl and f. wanted to be married. Ever since, :we  have been very happy, and I would  not change places .with .any rich  lady;.- .'.       ���������������������������-������������������������������������  "Look at.these children.

"It was only a pass-  tell heri if any more invitations come ing weakness and I am much better  that she must not accept them until  Mr. Daryl gives me an opportunity of  becoming acquainted with him myself."       ,  ��������� Mr. Warrender made no reply. He  knew thajt the blame would fall on  him, and he had no wish to injure  h:niself too deeply  in Kilmeny's eyes.  now.- Let us go home, Kilmeny; I will  not delay for anythingl"  "You must come in: until you are  better," Chris said anxiously; but Mrs.  Richmond positively and almost  vehemently . .declined, and Kilmeny  made him a sign not to press her.  The faces of both' the young people  Mrs. >  chmond seemed  to divine 'his!looked pale and anxious as they went  meiny's place, but his mind was painfully exercised during the whole time.  Even when he was fishing up- water-  lilies for little 5-year-old Clare, and  allowing Lancelot to row with him, to  the far end of the lake, and setting out  tho eataibles for- Jessica, his thoughts  were on far different things. That  something had ocourred to turn Mrs.  Richmond against him, and'decide her  to reject hisi advice a>ntl'shut 'him- out.  of her confidence, was beyond a doubt.  What that could be remained a mystery. There was nothing; in his very  uneventful and simple life which it  would give him the slightest concern  for the whole, world to know, and he  At intervals were great piles of bread.  "It keeps me a'nd the girls pretty  busy looking after the eating and  washiug for our big family," resumed Mrs. Smartwood/ when I came out  of iho dining room. " Father makes  about ������70 a month, and the boys bring  in abouT' ������90 a, month, and while wo  get along nicely; we have nothing to  spare. We've givan all the children  its good schooling as they . can get  around here."  "What do you think of married life?"  I ventured to ask.  "Well, I ought to know, I guess.  Every wotuau should get married, I  think. I don't know much about the  new woman, hut if she don't believe in  married life, 1 doin't want ��������� to know"  anything about her. What's as happy  as having childrein to love you and you  loving them ?"  "None of my children has been a  source of grief,, trouble or anxiety to  me, and I l.hink God has been especially kind to give me so many. Yes, sir,  you can' p-uti me down as believing in  the married woman who believes in  having children."  Mr. Smnrtwood, who is an engineer  oar. the Jersey, Central Railroad, has  been receiving the congratulations of  his fellow workmeai for several days  upon his wife giving birth to the twenty-fifth child.

MISERABLE WOMEN  HOW   WOMEN   LOSE   INTEREST   IN  THEIR HOUSEHOLDS.,  The III* to Which Women Are Heir t'nnHe  Muck Suir������rlnjf���������The Experience ol a  iJidy Who Hun Found a Mpeedy Cor*.  Mi's. Isaie T. Comeau, who resides  at 83 1-2 Arago street, St- Rocb, Quebec, is a teacher of French, English,  and music. For many years Mrs.  Comeau' has Buffered greatly from internal troubles, peculiar to her sex,  and also from continuous weakness  the result of headaches, neuralgia and  nervous prostration. Her trouble became so bad that she was forced to  give up teaching, and go to an hospital, but the treatment there did not  materially benefit her- una ultimately  she loft the hospital still a great sufferer. Meantime her husband having  heard of the great value of Dr. Williams' Pink- lJills for Pale people  purchased a few boxes and prevailed  upon his wife to try thern: When interviewed as to the merits ot the  pills Mrs. Comeau gave ber story to ���������  the reporter about  aa follows:���������  " My   trouble    came    on   after   the.  birth' of mv child, and up to the time ���������  I began  to use Drt" Williams'    Pink  Pills 1 could -find nothing to cure me.  I,.suffered   much    ojgony,   Was    very  weak, had frequent severe headaches,  and littlo or no appetite.

No discovery of  modern  times has  proved  such' a, boon to women- as Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.

Au F.unllhli ficuilcuiiiii Is the Owner and  lie Has Some Bfll-e ISIrd-, mid AntniulK-  The  distinction  of having  probably  the most comprehensive zoo in England belongs to Mr. O. J. Deyland, of  Haggerstoa  Castie, Beal.   Among th*  birds are the rhoa,    South   American^  ostrich,   doiniseUe,   Numidian,   crane,  Liberian crane, Zambesi goose, Australian black swan, eawi, and waten fowl  from   all   parts of   the   globe.      Fina.  however,  as the bird side of the collection is, that of the animials is more  interesting.     It   includes   many kangaroos,  of    which Mr.    Leyland    h&s  bred  and  reared numhers.    Considering the bleakness of the Northumberland coast,    this    cirou-mstance proves  that    the marsupials are more  hardy  than one would think.;    In   the park  there is also a herd of Canadian deer,  froni one of    v/hich Mr. Leyland has  had a pair of cast horns weighing 22  pounds.     Here,   too, ima.y    be seen a  magnificent  herd of North  American  bison; indeed,   it    is considered to be  the  finest and  largest  in  the  world,  for the animals are now practically extinct  in their own  country.   Another  herd    is    worth    mentioning���������one    of  white-taJLled   gnus.   The  ruler of  this  community   is a most ferocious animal,  a bull that has killed two of his species,  one of   theim older and bigger    than  himself.     In coDsequenoe of this   performance he was docked of bis horns;  but evenno'w he defies any body or anything that comes near him, glories in  a fight, and would give a good account  of himself Ln a mortal combat.  There,is uq doubt that the authorities are at their wits''ends how to find  officers for the cavalry, says the Broad  Arrow. Sixty vacancies actually exist  and very shortly there will be twenty  more. To meet this pressing demand  only twenty cadets will be available  for commissions from Sandhurst, and  about half that number are, we understand, coming from, the militia. The  cause of the present difficulty in obtaining officers has been erroneously  put down as solely due to the increasing expenses.of. cavalry service.. In a  measure this is partly the case. Formerly a young officer could get along  on an allowance of ������200 or ������300 a  year besides his pay; but the lowest  limit of a cavalry subaltern's private  income to-day,may oe safely set down  at ������500 or ������600. This fact undoubtedly keeps oat tlie man of moderate  means. ��������� ,  A DANCING  PROCESSION.      ;:  A peculiar, but famous, dancing procession annually takes place at Ech-  ternach. In Belgiuan, France and Gerr  many excursions are. organized to the  little Luxemburg towin, whose church  contains the [remains of St. Willibrord.  The pilgrims to Echternach execute in  a certain rhythml what is called' the  dance of the "leaping saints," It  takes the form of advancing three  stops, making a step backward, advancing three more, arid so on. It is  in this quaint way that the procession  in which ten thousand.persons take  part each year, starts from the bridge  on the Lure, the place of assembly, to  the church.  % ���������' '        ' ,-,'.-' ,,,'-���������-' ' ^:lll  . i*..*l^' *������������������ * 1 "l������ "    ���������>'      '       "> ��������� -T     - .������   J       ���������      ���������������-,(   *      |   > r t.     i    I . u    ������      W     i. . a ������ I I    ��������� "      ��������� ������-������ ������.���������..��������������� .1  1.1 THE MINING RE VIE VV^^

George Kirke, at onetime foreman
on the Silver Cup, died last week'at
the Balmoral hotel, where he had been
staying, for some time. He was a
native of tho State of Maine. He. was
buried in the Sandon cemetery on Sunday ; the services  were conducted  by
��� jtheliev. Pather Ferland.    ,
���'''.It'see'mcd to be evident on Sunday
��� last at the Presbyterian church opening that there is a growing sentiment
' among (,),e citizens generally in favor
of chtircb orgflnizatioi-8. . As a proof
of brotherly feeling existing' in church
circles, id j (it led to- by the speakers of
the clay, wjj wiH mention the fourbap-
. t sms, tire parents'���Mr. and Mrs. Kav-
anagh, Mr. and Mrs. Main,. Mr. and
Mrs. I. Crawford, , Mr. and Mrs. Williamson���embraced the clill'erent faiths
represented, here.
There are 1032 names on the'-lately'
revised Slocan voters' list;_ but as no
'one-Appeared to strike oil' those removed from the country, and   as. our
I crude Jaw makes no provision for the
knocking oil'of absentees from the division, it is a very imperfect list after
all. If an elr.etion-were held today,no
more than V200 votes csuld be cast. As
I there are 710 miners on the lute list,
and ns more miners than other people
have left the division lately, out of the
possible ItiOO votes available there
would probably be 450 miners and 750
jof all other callings.
Premier Laurier is not then going to
Jenforce the Alien Labor Act at the re-
Jqucst of the   Sandon Miners'. Union.
|He is going  to appoint a commission
Ito enquire into the difficulty between
fthe owners and thiVnieri.   That's right;
jet at the (acts, aiid give   Mr. ILigier
chance . to show where  the thousand
(naturalized miners'are iii the.Slocan,
villi   their   wives   and   families.   _ A
M-oper representation of the  working

disallowance,   and-then   owners   and
