 VOL 3.      NO. 25.  SANDON, B.C., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  S WORD 01 III  IG.  .Failures Not necessarily the Hesult  of  Dishonest or, Bad  Management.  ' ,    This mining problem is' n, source of  much concern to eastern.people.   As a  rule it  ia  hard to convince misny "of  them that it is speculative.   The average eastern man concludes -that if his  investments in stock turn out well, he  simply dropped into the minds of honest men-; if they turn out badly., he has  simply  been fleeced.   While   both of  these -convictions   may   be m   some  , cases correct, it in no way discloses all  the fads, ns  a property may 'be well  _ handled and turn out a failure, while  anothor,thougb extravagantly handled,  may turn out  fairly successful.   Tt all  ���������depends on -what is in  the ground, and  jio man can tell that by looking at the  _urface���������the reality can only be discovered ns  operations  progress   from  time to  timo.    Stocking'and  subsequent operations are not always, however, carried out on lines  to secure the  highosi, measure of success^  For instance all claims should have  the necessary   assessment work done  and be Crown granted before  they arc  placed on the stocic market.   It short  if the government were  to  pay some  attention to such matters and see what  companies   wore offering for sale, instead'of antagonizing miners and owners, they would be doing something to  Jielp  the country.   Properties  so improved should be worth from 51,000 to  85,00".   The nest step is to organise a  ^company with a capitalization  ol   1,-  000,000 elmre< of a par value  of til.OO  each.   _o raise'money to develop and  work the property the owner sets aside  400,000 shares retaining 000,000 shares  himtolf, which he sells at any 5 cents u  '.jhnrc.   .This ii ������<o  far aogood.   If in-,  stead of keeping up nn expensive office I  And high priced oflieials this ?20,000 is'  honestly expended in development, the  promoter ��������� has   fairly   dons   his   duty  whether tlie propel ly turns out well or  badly.   If that  money 1ms been honestly expended the shareholders have  no nior.il or legal right to  blame   the  promoters.    The hitter could not know  whnt wns in store alter any given expenditure.   Inmost-instiinc.es, if there  is anything   in (,|iC property such  nn  expenditure    uill   roach   paying   ore  bodies nnd declare the property to be a  mine.    It fomelinies   happens,  however, that such paying mineral linn not  yet been reached,   but tho indications  havo been so far improved  as to warrant further investment.   On the other  hand   such nn expenditure may only  show  that further outlay is not  war-j  ranted by the showing, in which case'  Ji\ill\IC is c!cclarod by tlio indications.  All that investors can do is to see that  their investments are properly handled  and, it they meet with failure, all are  exonerated from blame.   So far as we  are able to learn, however, failures in  the Slocan  are of less frequent occurrence than in any other portion of the  mining territory or the province.   This  would declare the Slocan to be the best  held m the country in which to make  investments.  nnd advice" of "Hewitt Bostock and  other members of the provincial and  Dominion houses." Was there ever  anything more rnscally or glaringly  corrupt in tlie history of Canadian politics. Here is a direct declaration  from ono who knows the ins and ouls  of the whole transaction. This law  was passed, and aU this (rouble and  loss to the country created, ns some assert out of consideration for the health  of the men and others because it is the  rule in other countries. Now, it is  known that many of the men arc aliens  and without votes. Mr. Hagler, tbje  secretary of the union says 30 per cent  of them are aliens. If tho other 70 per  cent of thenrwere in the sni^e list  their health should be looked after the  same by a properl}' constituted government.-; but the correspondent, referred  to above, openly confesses that it is because they command the electoral vote  of the camp, its members are not without ���������encouragement irom the ,powers  that be., There is no question in the  world but that the courts of the country 'would declare this to be bribery  and corruption of a most flagrant character.1 Our advice to the men is to  take jjII the sympathy and advice, and  even cash, if it is going, from Hewitt  Bostock and other members of the provincial and Dominion houses���������tho  powers that be���������they can get, and  when it comes to voting be men.  Judge all on their general records, the  policy of their governments and vote j  accordingly. This is why "the ballots  were plaeed in their hand's, and not because these pettifogging, sycophantish  incapabios'would be driven to their  wits' end to hunt for votes in elections.  Ill WIPES  .

Fighting   is reported at' the  Mooi river.   The Boers' are doing more  looting   than fighting,   and   all   their  parties south of Lndysmith are forag-  'ing on the farms.   Advices from Lady-  smith tell of brilliant British victories,  with a comparatively slight loss on our  side and heavy slaughter of the enemy.  Ladsmith is full of wounded and captured Boers.   It is reported that in the  fighting on November 0th   the enemy  lost 300 killed and' 500 captured.   The  I Boers are trying to influence and conciliate tho Natal Kaffirs.

T. Milburnct Co., Toronto. Ont.  It is a pity that some people aro al  I ways  sufficiently indiscreet  to persist  m doing injury rather than service in  critical times like, the present in the  Slocan.   The other day  Mr. Hand, of  thelayne had a private talk with an  othecr of the miner's' union, on the situation -here,with a view to ascertaining  if steps could not be taken  to effect a  settlement.   For this good office, Mr.  Hand will receive   the thanks of all  classes of the  community.   He took  the step on his own responsibility, and  at. once  it was   given   to the Nelson  inbuneas an advance from the "Own-  | ers'" association/with the rider that he  was sent to make,terms.   Now, even if  what is represented of Mr. Hand   was  periectly true, it was very unwise and  indelicate to give it to th3 public until  a settlement and the terms were fully  agreed on; but it   becomes infinitely  more unwise and indiscreet when Mr.  Hand's position and conversation are  misrepresented aud  distorted.   As the  matter h.is gone so far to the public.we  may say that the owners' association  are not now opposed to negotiations  with a view to au honorable settlement  all around, if conciliatory and substantial representatives of the miners are  appointed to confer with them to that  end.   To handle the matter properly,  however,   cool heads   will have to be*  employed, that will  be able to keep  their own council till a settlement may  be reached.   As  we have always said,  the whole truth never lies at the farthermost point of any one extreme, but  somewhere between the two extremes  R. A. Gnratt, Montreal.  B. C. Davis, Quebec.  A. R.

The Rossland Labor Council is now  interfering in the Slocan trouble and  advising    Premier'-Laurier   that  the  owners here are offering $_ a day for  alien labor and but S3 to native labor.

'  A girl with wavy brown hair, dark  blue, speaking eyes, and slight form,  was seated next a window slaring at  the' flitting scenes on tho waiy! with  very evident' bewildered and ecstatic  admiration.

" Proud, yes, and  they have a right  , to be,"   returned   her  brother.  " You  will be wild with delight when you see  " Winnipeg.

In the samto September sunset Farmer Glendale sat on tho wide verandah of his stone cottage wilh tilled  chair, his broad shoulders resting  .against the railing, his head sinking  hack into ,the shadow of the dark  cg.reen foliage lhat formed a wall behind him, his largo, soft hand supporting a head, whose dark covering  made a fitting outline for a face,  grave, almost dull, except for the occasional flash from a pair oi brilliant  dark eyes.  ,Wi_n a look of quiet, almost sad  pleasure, those eyes now surveyed tho  scone around him: and yet, as you  looked where his eyes wandered you  marvelled tha,t his features were not  all aglow with delight, for what a  sight it was 1  BRIDGE OVER THE TUCELA RIVER AT COLENSO, BELQWLADYSMITH.

Stay and make inehap'-  Ono of the most perfect days in early  Seotember was drawing to a close, a  day of almost hushed stillness, as if  mature were spellbound with tho effect produced by the wonderful fairies  she had pet to work on autumn's wardrobe. The siky had spread overhead  its deep, protecting roof of blue, tho  sunshine came down, with the gentle,  thrilling touch Soplembor alone receives, and even the moon peeped  through early1 in the afternoon to see.  Along the winding. river, to the  south-east, the trees were gorgeous  in yellow and red. pale greon and scarlet. Hundreds of yellow sta.cks were  raised over ther yellow plain as monuments of nature's bounty, while nestling in among protecting- trees, as far  as eye could see were the cosy homes  ��������� of his neighbours. In the distance glittered the tall" steeples, elovators,.factories' and sun-lit roofs of the town,  .of Sourisland. How beautiful it all  was I The! fields of rich stubble smiled,  tlio low ridge of hills to the south whis-  " ipercd security and peace, while the  energetic whistle of tho passing train  recalled the co-operative activity of tho  town and the .business world.  A. tinge of bitterness for a moment  marred the half-smilo suggested on  tho thoug\htful face, and told a closo  observer his thoughts wero not with  his eyes. Ho: was reviewing the past.  He recalled, her words in tho last, walk  together. "I would marry you, George,  if you did not^vish to bury me; I  dread the frozen north and tho  weird company of coyotes and Indians." ,r ������������������ ."'  Then he remembered how the hot  ' young blood'had rushed with sensitive swiftness to his faco and his icy  reply, " Vjer'y well, Annie, I do not  \yant an-unwilling bride. I was foolish' enough to hope you could be happy with' mle even that far, away, in  far Assiniboia. May yOur decision never give you' the pain it ha,s givon me.  Goodnight and good-bye."  Years had passed. Tho great Sour-  island boom in which he had invested  ���������heavily and confidently had been followed by three years of the greatest  depression..

Yes I His musings  were interrupted  by,  "Good evening, sir,  do you wish to  engage any  more  farm hands?"  Turning   '.ovvard   the   voice,   ho  saw  a   tall,   whille-foiced   young  nian,  with'  to his .foreman who was entering   the  gate.  " Bruco, heie's a young fellow who  wishes to get work. Kindly take him  round to the housekeeper, as he requests lo speak Lo her also before ihe  (goes. ,,  Meanwhile Annie Somers waited  anxiously, for her brother's return  from his' quest for work among the  farmers.  " Oh, Rob," said she, after listening to an account of ihe day's adventure", "I am so glad thaL you got  work' for us botli, and on the same  farm, too I Isn't il splendid I Wchave  none but out two selves in .the world  now, but we will bo ve.nyi hai>py together ; now let us prepare- for our  duties to-morrow. I feel very important I"  The' next morning as the new help  appeared in the farm-house dining-  room, looking very bright, with the  Pii'.eltly, sunny hair and large while  apron', a close observer might have noticed a surprised look, and a sudden  pallor come to '���������he face ot tho owner  of Glondale farm.  The weeks passed. Annie went.abouit  the work in her own bright way, and  soon became a general favorite. Her  hands were clever and hor heart was  kind. On- of her greatest pleasures  was hor evening chat with her brother.-  " What a handsome man, Rob, Mr.  Glendaleis, and such a clever, thoughtful face."  " Y"es, isn't it strange, Annie, thai  such a man should remain unmarried.  The men tell mo that' ho is a sort of  woman-hater, or, at least, they never seem lo enter inlo his world: at  all."  Some weeks after this conversation  she was dusting the books in Mr. Glen-  dale's reading room when, picking up  a, book sho had let drop, sho saw  something had fallen from it. Looking  at it, to her speechless surprise, she  ..^held tho picture of herself taken  ��������� ith smiling face, and hail-, school-girl  ."-shion, hanging in waves over her  shoulders-  She remembered the history of lhat  picture. In a flash, the whole truth  dawned on her. George Glendale was  her old lover, tho man she had let  face the west alone fifteen years ago.  She knew now why he had so slrango-  ly fascinated her. 'The something familiar about him was now all explained.  The youth had developed into tho  handsome, matured man. She dropped  on the sofa and covered her face. Sure-  lyl he did not know I What should she  do? Get out of this she must, but  how, and whore should she go?-How  could she keep an unmoved exterior  until she had escaped from the shelter of the roof of Iho man' she loved  and had rejected.'       ���������  Next morning Annie asked for an  interview with Mrs. Wilson, the housekeeper.  " My dear girl," said the astonished  lady, " we cannot let you go. The  other girls have not yol all had their  holidays, cannot we persuade you to  stay; Mr.-Glendale will be so put out,  for,    he Odislikes   changing , help   'so  much.":    ..-'���������'.���������'���������'.'' ;���������.  ; " No, Mrs. Wilson, I cannot stay unless you bind me to the terms of my  Agreement. . You have all been very  kind to me and I love this beautiful  home, but I cannot remain. Use your  influence with Mr. Glendale, won't  you?" .���������'���������"'.'  " Well, my poor child, I will," said  she, noting the. sorrowful face, "but I  do wish  you  would  re-consider."  That evening Annie was called into  tho parlor. Mr. Glendale rose, courteously as she entered.  "Miss Somers, they tell mc you wish  to1 leave us,", he said. '..���������.'���������  . '"Yes,-.'a,- once, if you please," and  she moved toward a Window to hide  hor face from his quizzical eyes.    ..  "Annie," the words came in a gentle tone. She half turned her head in  bewilderment. Did a voice from the  dead fifteen years utter her name. How  sweet it sounded I "Annie," he repeated. " let us shake hands over this mutual recognition, and he extended his  hand toward -her.  "Oh, Mr. Glendale���������George���������do you  mean to say you do not hate mo for  the past," and she covered her faco  with her hands.  "No, Annie. I tried to feel bitter  and blot your memory from my life,  buti your suddeni appearance here has  convinced -me only too clearly how I  havo failed.    The pasti is forgotten."  She answered,-" I thank you for your  great kindness to mo. Tho past is over  and dead. You are magnanimous  enough to forigive it all. You will let  me go. We will part. I will got another plate aind you will bo as you  were before.   Rob  will stay with  you  py.    Be my wife."  " George, your generosity humbles  me to the very dust. Do you nol know-  that I am a penniless girl, earning  her living with her own hands 1"  " Annie,',' ho whispered and ho drew  her closer, " do you care for mo even  a little?'"  " Need you ask ,that, George, I loved  you fifteen years ago. " Then you shall  never, leave me. Truly love _������ stronger  than death to have lived so long. Do  you fully trust me, darling ?"  The rosy smile of gladness that lit  her face spoke more eloquently than  \vbrd6. A long, happy talk followed,  and when occasionally they lapsed.in-  to silence it wa������ only thai their hearts  became too full for speech.  " Remember, my lost treasure," he said  at parjting that evening. "You w-ill  bo safe from coyotes and Indians with  me, and 1 only /wish to bury your heart  in mine not you,"  The farm hands were much surprised lo learn that Miss Somers had decided lo iemair> permanently at Glendale farm and more surprised that she  was to be mistress of lhat beautiful  home.  Christmas arrived, and among tho  many happy visitors that thronged the  greatest city of the plains .were two  who skimmed hero and there, sipping  tho many sweets of a long-delayed  honeymoon, and bubbling over with  joy, gratitude n'nd wonder at all the  innumerable blessings that had come  to lhem and their beloved counlry after fifteen  yeats.

Probably there is but one place in  the world where gold may be picked  up from a sandy beach- I Yet on Cape  Nome, on Norton Sound, Behring Sea,  Alaska, men, women and) children are  enriching; themselves after precisely  this fashion.  Only a few weeks ago a discouraged  miner who had been lured to the Cape  Nome district by what he had come to  consider false hopes espied gold under  his feot as he sat is his tent on tho  beach. Within an hour he had laid  the  foundations of  a fortune.  Now for a do_en miles or more along  the beach there may bo seen a thi ong  of independent diggers.     Never before  has such easy mining been heard of.1 A  small, square bit of beach "will yield  froin S10 to ������15 aa hour. The entire  yield of the beach, district is said to be  about ������20,000 a day.  Business of all kinds has responded  lo the beach boom.

' THE MORNING' BATH.  Experience has taught us that  nothing equals the morning bath for  refreshing the body, clearing the mind,  and imparting a feeling of geneial  comfort. It is, therefore, important  thai every one should understand how,  to take a bath in order to derive full  benefit from ii. The temperature of  the wai er must be suited to the individual wants of different people. A'0  cold bath is the most invigoratingj  but il cannot "be safely indulged im by.  every one. Luke wa_-in water'' is,  therefore, preferable for the majority  of fieople. A hot bath is best takenl  at night, 'shortly before retiring, butt  if taken in the .morning, exposure to(  cold air should be avoided i'or&everalj  hours after coming from, the bath!  room.

The owners are as  willing as  ever to   pay  old   rates   of  wages if they can get old work, or relatively more for the work-the law now  allows them to get, and the men refuse  it.   They make several legitimate efforts  to bring in miners   from   other  parts of Canada;   and the miners' unions 113 often intercept them,  in ways I strong,"  sometimes,   we have   been   informed,  that left them liable to the law if its  ,   provisions were iuforced ; but this we  give as  hearsay.   In turn   they   hire  sonic men that como in from tho oilier  side, rnul at once the shout   "Italian  labor" goes up.   If,   may be possible  thai of the men who came in and were  engaged   two or three   were Italians ;  but the owners cannot be expected to  catechise  every man ns engaged ns to  his nationality.     It  is  a settled  fact  no effort has been made to engage Italians as a body, and this exonerates the  owners   fully from-the charges  made  against them.  It is public properly that some business men, who have been doing  considerable business with the  miner?, nre inciting the latter  against the owners because they do  not open the mines. Gentlemen,  this is not the way to bring about  a much desired settlement. The owners are human, and cannot bo blamed  for employing ordinary human methods, in such cases.  We have been given to understand  that at the present the owners have a  standing- offer of lrom 1,000 to 5,000  foreign miners, men who are experienced in the silver lead mines of Europe, to accept the wages offered, if the  owners are disposed to engage them.  We are sensibly aware that while the  owners would make as much out of  them as they can possibly out of the  present labor of the west, ir, would  prove a serious detriment to the bus-  nifss people, one and all, and the owners are giving- that much concern���������iu-  finitely more than some of tho business  people are giving the interests of the  owners at the present. Of course, what  may or may not grow out of the situation, it is very hard at the present to  predict, there stand in the gap the  possibilities of what may be the outcome of Commissioner Olute's visit;  the results of the case before the Privy-  Council in England; the possible modifications of the law by the B. C. legislature; or the arrangements that may  yet be made by mutual advances between resident miners and the owners,  or other white labor that may conic in  from other quarters. With all these  possibilities before the country, it is  very hard to speculate on the outcome;  but it is reasonable to assume th.it it  will be a date before the mines are  likely to open.  John Hobinson,  chief of tho lire  department, Dresden, Out., says:  " Prior to taking these pills I had kidney troublo which caused sovers pain in  tho small of my back and in both sides.  I had a tired fooling and nover seemed lo  be able lo get rested. However, I commenced tho uso of Doan's Kidnoy Pills,  and after taking three boxes am completely  cured. I havo now no backache or urinary  trouble, and the tired feeling is completely gone.   In 'fact,  I am well  and  WHAT CAN BE DONE ?  What may be the outcome of Mr.  Chile's visit to the Slocan to look into  the trouble occasioned by the eight-  ���������   hour law, it   is difficult   to surmise;  bt-it unless  it   leads to the   disallowance    of. the   Act,    it    presents   a  capital opportunity   for some of our  provincial   legislators   to   distinguish  themselves at the next session of the  legislature.   We are fully aware  that  it   will be impossible to   accomplish  that most desirable-of all ends���������the restoration of; the good will that existed  between owners and   employes  before  the mischievous legislation of last session was passed.   It will take time to  do that;  but none the less under the  Dritish constitution there is a way of  rectifying all wrongs.   It would be unwise to attempt ��������� to repeal the  eight-  hour law, in so far as it establishes a  standard  day���������in short',   wisdom   and  fair play ' would suggest its extension  to embrace all classes of the-community who work for their daily wage, so  that ail may know what is expected of  them daily when they hire by the day,  week or month ; but freedom should be  had from restrictions depriving British  subjects of their liberty or limiting  the earning" power of tho subject. Timidity on the part of our representatives  may be the great impediment in the  way of oileding the desired changes.  We think we nre safe in saying  Lhat thereare in the province today  no more intelligent classes of people  than the industrial elements, and  none more liberal. They read whatever arguments appear in tho-prcss, are  capable of sifting what they read, and  arc generally disposed to see uniform  treatment to their fellow beings. A  knowledge nnd conviction" that they  possess these nt(ribntos,shoulcl open the  door for a solution of the ihflieuJty.  Wo are fully aware there are demagogues associated with every trade or  calling in lifo,  who live in agitations  for the grists  they bring to their own  mills, but sensible men in all callings  must' see that legislation is not  best  that makes livings for agitators alone.  Tho bulk of our capitalists  are not tyrants, nor is there a large percentage  of   our   industrial   community   anarchists.    Eyery   one,    who   desires   to  make this province his home, knows  that our resources must be developed���������  that  the labor element is  increasing  and that employment   must   be provided   for it, from timo to time,   and  that   cannot   be   done    without    the  sympathetic   employment of  capital.  Appealing to sentiment, for the returns  it may bring, will never meet the desired results.   What is wanted are frequent   consultations between   capital  and labor, and our mining legislation  all   drawn on lines   concurred in  by  both���������and not to promote  tho aims of  agitators or the ends ol\ the wily politician.   It is sincerely to be hoped that  at the approaching session some of our  representatives   will rise equal to the  necessities, cast oil' lhat  timidity be-  gotlen   of  immodest aspirations,  and  ptomotc  legislation that, while shortening the hours of labor to all industrial classes alike, will leave them free  as self-interest and the general welfare  of the country best suggests.  fideut sensible miners as well  as sensible people of all other   classes must  fully agree.     It   opposes   slavery   in  every form���������that whicli declares that  the miners of this country are not sufficiently   intelligent   and  capable   of  taking care of their own intertsts without special legislation in their behalf.  It believes that wo class of people as  intelligent   as tho  Slocan miners are  should be created wards  of the state.  It advocates  a uniform eight-hour law  for all who work for wages, irrespective  of calling, creed or color,with nil of its  conditions guaranteeing the liberty of  the subject to do as he likes with hie  own labor.   Il opposes any legislation  that limits   the .earning capability of  any class of the community ; it opposes  any   laws or by-laws  that limit , the  earning capability of any good man in  his calling or profession to the  wage  paid to inferior men in tho same profession or calling.   We are opposed to  rules or regulations that prevent a man  from earning his living at  the calling  or profession of his choice, simply because he may not be able to earn the  wage fixed by any organization or society.   Such men should  be allowed,  without interference, to work for what  they are worth when they can find men  willing to employ lhem at that.   What  we want is for some of these  prints  fhalcSVp at the heels of The Review  from time  to time to show us  what  there is wrong in this  declaration of  principles.

THOSE FACTS.  , By Now Denver and Sandon correspondents, and Editorial notes, Monday  and Wednesday's Nelson Tribune says:  Mr. Hand, of the Payne, had an interview with the union and "was agreeable to the old scale of wages"; that  'he said he had been sent by the mine  owners' association"; that "he would  have the matter straightened up in six  days"; that "five managers have received word from, their companies to  either start up or quit their jobs"; that  "the labor difficulty in the Slocan has  been amicably settled on a peaceful  basis"; "a conference was heldMast  night till a late hour, at Sandon, between a delegation ol mine-owners and  the miners' union," etc.  As there has been no conference held  between the owners and the union, by  delegation or otherwise; that no scale  of wages has been agreed on ; that the  mines have not opened yet, and that  the whole reports���������with the exception  that Mr. Hand, on his own responsibility, had a private talk with an  officer of the union���������are a tissue of  misrepresentations from beginning to  end, the Tribune will soon learn what  reliance to place on the statements of  its correspondents.

'  A contemporary takes great pleasure  in misrepresenting this paper. Once  for all, we may say, The Review never  advocated the employment of Italian  or any other foreign labor in the Slocan mines. It never opposed a consistent eight-hour law; it never advocated the payment of only ������3 to good  miners.  There are some things, however, it  does advocate, with which we are con-  Doctors now agree that  consumption is curable.  Three things, if taken together, will cure nearly every  case in the first stages; the  majority of cases more advanced; and a few of those  far advanced.  The first is, fresh air; the second, proper food; the third,  Scott's Emulsion of co-' yy-.i  oil with hypophospliices.  To be cured, you must not  lose in weight, and, ���������'" thin,  you  must gain.     Nothing  There is one thing Commissioner  Clutc should take notice of when he  comes to the Slocan to look into the  working of the eight-lionr law, and it  this: That seven-eights of even the  men who support the miners' view of  it say '"It was a mistake it was ever  passed." Some of them, however, add  the rider "but when it was passed it  should be given a trial." Many of  these same people, however, say that  the press of the country should have  remained silent on the question.  Let us examine this fairly. Here  is a law that should never have been  passed, and the press of the country  should never have said a word about  it. Then how were the people's representatives in parliament to be informed  that it should never have been passed.  Again if the people of any - country  are to accept every law that is passed,  unpopular and unjust as they may be,  without a protest from the. press, where  are we to look to for tlie reforms that  are supposed,to be advanced from day  to day, to promote the progress of the  country ? The absurdity of the contention that the press should be silent on  objectionable legislation must be apparent to every man who gives the  matter even a passing thought.  There is no other remedy-  equal to B.B.B. for making the  blood pure, rich and red, and  the skin clear and smooth.  Kerens proof from Bertha J.  Tqzer, North Esk, N.B.

One of the indications of serious heart  troublo is the sensation of weakness or  faintness that comes on at-times.  Sometimes it is simply a dizzy feeling  that passes off, or it may bo a state of unconsciousness with hands and feet cold  and countenance  ghastly palo.  These symptoms indicalo n  weakened 1/oart.  Thoy aro unmistakable evidences  of tho engine o������  lifo breaking  down.  Now thero's  only one- reliable  remedy for restoring strength and vitality  to weakened hearts and relieving all tho  distressing symptoms. It is Milburn's  Heart and Norvo Pills.  The caso of Mrs. A. Stratton, Frederie-  ron, N.B.', amply proves this. Hero is  her statement:  "I suffered very much from an impoverished condition of tho blood, coupled  wilh oxtreme norvousness. A dizzy sensation 011 arising quickly or coming down  stairs, often troubled mo, and my breath  was so short that I could not walk up  stairs! The least exortiou caused my  heart to flutter and palpitate violently,  ���������and I sometimes felt a smothering son-  sation on going to sleep.  I doctored back andd'orlh for my weakness, but I got no 1 uliel" from any medioino  until I tried Milburn's Heart and Nervo  Pills", aud I can say that they helpod m'o  wonderfully. Sometimes, my fiieo and  arms would swell and puff, but nil t.heso  troubles speedily yielded to tho restoring  influences of Milburn's Heart and Nerve  Pills, and I am now strong and well. I  did not use lhem long until I regained tho  blessing of healthful, refreshing sleep and  it will always bo a pleasure to me to  reoommeud :hem to others."  Kaslo and Slocan  JlflE* C-.F.&.

Should tlio    Zulus  seize    the opportunity offorr-d by the Transvaal war lo  Hliike for   freedom,    England    .would  havo  her hands full.  Should the bold  Itiisutos join arms  with    their   fierce  cousins, South Africa    would    become  hot soil for the British fool, for many  long months to come.  Uolh of these uprisings are threatened; both are gro.illy feared. The Zulu  situation in particular is watched with  .anxious eyo. England for a while was  overmatched in the last Zulu war, .ind  victory was bought in the end with  rivers of English blood, Scarcely' any  greater misforLune could come just  now  Chan on   uprising  such as this.  The Zulu is undoubtedly lhe best native  lighter    of    South  Africa. Ho is  physically    a splendid    savage���������fierce,  powerful and enduring. Add    lo   this  tha memory   of    a magnificent    past,  the  traditions and  courage  of a   race  unwhipped  except by  -white men, and  by them, only at fearful odds, and. you  have    a worthy    foeman.    The    Zulus  yielded    to    tho      sway  of     England  through force indeed,. but   ihe   fight  they made then was one to keep alive  the hope of a better ending for renewed struggle.  SECRET OF ZULU POWER.  U'he secret of ' the Zulu power.lies,  first, in organization, and, second, in  the tradition of victory. Organization  under the great chieftain! Tshaka at  the beginning of lhe [present century  gave them their first' superiority over  other savage tribes, and an unending  series of victories for half a century  or more produced u race of rare cour  age and warlike prowess.

But  while    taught    to    respect  lhe  white man, the Zulu nursed-his tradi-  .. ..ions,  his pride  and his ferocity.

One of his lieutenants was a youth  of fierce and restless energy. He was  iho son of a conquered chieftain and  iis name was Tshaka.

It is. called Coleothrix Meth-  y������tes, and was found by Prof, and  Mrs.-Yuloy in rum oxpotred from Bri-  tisli Guiana. It ruined tho rum, and  the most interesting, feature of tha  .discoveiiyi.ia that ibis is tho first bac-  'V" iound that can live in a fluid  of 70 per.cent, alcohol. It is also pe.  culiar in flourishing best in the sunshine, which is death to most bacteria.  .       ���������  ~      ������������������'.-,  Darkness  stops   the  growth  of   this  species, and  90 per cent, of, alcohoIiE  needed to kill it. Even drying does not  kill it, so this is on.o of the most dap  gerouis of the bacilli.  It is supposed  that it was due eith-.  er to the uncleanliness of the bottles  into which the rum wia,s put or to thc  caramel sugar  used   in  coloring    the  rum. j The spoiling of the rum' is only  one of the effects of this little  crea:,,  ture  for   it    causes   severe   int6atina]  troubles in those who happen to partake of the liquid in which it his found  a home.

An old draper, writing in the Drapers' Record, London, says lhat between  a growing  inclination on  the pari of  customers    lo    bring    back    damaged  gloves for exchange, and  the evident  intention of wholesale houses to keep  returns within    as narrow limits   as  .heretofore,    the  unfortunate    retailer  seems likely to have a bad time of it.  What with extended stock    and closer culling  of prices,  the department  has  undergone  within  recent  years a  decided chango for tho worse, and now  frequently fails to return  a fair profit,  while   il  would  generally  not  bo  able  to  bear   the  loss  lhat more exchanges would  bring upon  il.   Yet it  must bo admitted thai, a customer has  a   right  to   expect  a good   and  wearable glove when sho has paid an adequate price  for  it,  and  it    would  bo  ab.sonlo folly  to  run  the risk of losing  her  future patronage  by sending  her  away  dissatisfied  and  in  a huff,  rather   than  replace  a pair or which  one has ripped without showing marks  of rough   treatment.      What  can    be  done?   It-chas been interesting lo follow  the'methods  adopted during    recent years by  our American    cousins  for    dealing    wilh  these    difficulties.  Thoy have in some cases given away  glove-stretchers with overy pair above  a specified price,  and may, probably,  in other instances have added packets  a.  chalk  as   well..   -They  have    been  ready to mend gloves, and have advo-  catod the instalment of a glove-mender in the. house  by giving one of (tho  young ladies    a complete outfit    and  plenty of encouragement, but  apparently  without  contemplating  any   increase of hor salary.   They have tried"  to promote home-mending by keeping  Tor    sale  in - the"    department    iglovo-  darners  in   tho  shape of small sticks  wilh oval balls of different sizes���������one  for the  thumb' and tho other for the  fingers���������al eilher end, and by providing  at popular  prices  dainty    haberdashery     cases     containing     special  needles, silks and buttons for glove repairs.      But  people  aro  nol likely to  jdo for themselves what they can get  done  for  them,  and so    a policy     of  fitting on gloves before purchase was  taken up, and is still fitfully, but 'not  enthusiastically followed.      The'"- plan  would work well enough if sweet reasonableness' in all customers  '   COULD BE DEPENDED  UPON.  LUCKY LUCKNOW.

With  all  deference, it  has    always  seemed to' me that this matter is not  taken at Lho right end.   It is like-commencing a subject in the middle to assume that women generally know how  lo treat properly, a pair of new gloves.  By all means lei us exchange readily  a pair    of gloves  thai,   either in tho  skin  or  sewing   is  faulty,  but let  us  try to secure intlulgent and wheedling  adaptation  ol- a  lender,   untried skin  to  the peculiarities of the hand that  hbs lo be put within it somehow.     It  Is, perhaps, too much to hope that women  wilt  ever  bo  brought    to    wear  gloves  big enough  for    them.      They  will probably -always insist upon gel-  ting their    gloves  one or    two    sizes  smaller than they oughl to be, in spile  of  lhe  fact  that  easy-fitting ugloves  will wear twice as long and really look  infinitely better than when, as a 1am-  ous academician once said, the fingers  are  made   to  look  like so many  sausages.   Il would be safe to declare that  not one    woman in    a hundred    buys  gloves large enough for her, and probably nol another out of the remainder  will be    wise    enough    and     careful  enough to give the gloves a fair start  in wear.   We can fall hack on consular  report for the calculation that a raw  skin must pass through 219 different  manipulations    before  il    'becomes    a  glove, and tho 220th is often a strain  like unto^ the stages ot a hearty meal  in a boa constrictor.   Glove stretchers  and   gratuitous powder   afford littlo  help, unless they are followed by muscular moderation, and the best way of  preventing split  gloves  is    to    'teach  glove wearers what" should or should  not be done with new gloves.   The best  way  of    imparting    this    instruction  would be by prettily printed and, preferably,    illustrated     leaflets,    which  might   be   given   away   with all purchases, and reprinted, as occasion offered, in catalogues or other  TRADE LITERATURE:  cure i hem, and there' was a time when  the more severe ,of the moladies wero  incurable.

This singgestiou is not put forward  as a discovery, nor can it be considered  a novelty, for some years ago an "inset" in. tlio trade list of. a leading .Exeter put the case for gloves plainly bo-  tore purchasers, after    this    fashion:  "Manner   of   Putting   on     Gloves.���������1,���������  Open and toi-n back the gloves to tho  thjUmb and powder lightly; 2, Put tho  fingers in their places, not the thumb,  and carofully work them on with tho  first finger  nnd  thumb  of the other  hland until they are quite down; never  press  between"   the  fingers;  3,    lJass  the thumb into its place with care, and  work on as the fingers; 1^ Turn back  the glove and slide  it over the hand  ind wrist, never pinching the kid, and  work  tho glove  into proper place by  means of the lightest pressure, always  allowing the kid to slide between the  fingers; 5, In finishing, care should be  taken in fastening tthe first button."  In clearness and directness this leaves  nothing  to  be  desired.     And with  a  brief account of the manufacture    o_  gloves,, which is full  of interest frdm  first   to ��������� last;   even , though those  219  processes were not enumerated, there  might be sent out a dainty little souvenir of the'department, which could  not fail to arrest attention and insure  an excellent advertisement.

MOUNTAIN ECHOES.  Supreme Court at Nelson on December 4th.  The coal miners' strike at Lcthbridge  has been patched up.  New Denver   wants tho  C. P. It. to  put up a better depot at tho siding.  How is it that seldom or never a  mine's output is ns high us the assays?  M. L. Grimmctt is having a walk  built round about his chateau on the  hill.  Mr. John J'owcr, Three Forks, gave a  dance   at   his   residence   on   Monday |  evening last.  Tlio Ledge says the mining trouble  in theSlocnn i.s"rictlled at Last." Well  informed, surely.  G. A. Hobiirt, vice-president of the  United States, died at his home in Put-  ersan, N. J., on Tuesday last.  Tne Union Sabbath School desires to  . publicly tlinnk Jtcv. J. A. OJcland for  a.donation ol 13 books for the library.  A report has reached Spokane that  the Mining trouble lucre has been settled ; but, of course, so Jar it is only  report.  There is a cose in tho courts at Nelson involving SIS.oO, and the coats are  over SCO. Wise people, some of those  litigants.  Those who have mining properties  to sell should read the advertisement  of Hope, Gravely & Co., in this issue  of The Review. '-'  Now is your time to sit for your  Xmas photos. Remember our stay  will positively be only until Tuesday,  December 5th, R. H. Trueman & Co.  The Ladies' Aid' of St. Andrews'  church desire to record their high appreciation of the services of the Sandon  Brass Band, so kindly rendered at their  concert recently.  Catarrh cured. A clear head and  sweet breath secured with Shiloh's  Catarrh Remedy. We sell six bottles  for $3 and guarantee an absolute cure.  Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  The new scats are on the way for the  school, and as the attendance is improving all tlie time, it shows that the  people are appreciating the efforts to  give lhem good school lacilities.  The interior of the Methodist church  is receiving treatment at the hands of  the painters, and, with other improvements contemplated will make it 11  pretty and eonilornible church.  Thos. Abriel has bought the Grand  hotel at Nakusp.       .1.  In liimcslike the present, more than  h alf the lies you near about the mining  trouble are net true.  If the Tribune will tell what it hopes  to gain by its unsightly cartoons, it  will be enlightenment to the public.  Stop that Cough! Take warning. It  may lead to consumption. A 25c.  bottle of Shiloh's Cure may save your  life.   Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  It is an anxious time between Hugh  John Mucdonali! and Thomas Green-  way in Manitoba just now, aa tlie provincial elections take place on the 7th  of December.  Slocan City has organized a strong  miners' union. Tlie general impression is it will lie more temperate in its  tone than some of the Silverton 'men  have been in the past.  Thos. Milne has secured a patent for  his paper hangers and painters' platform out of which he hopes t--> make a  few dimes later on. It is a very handy  and useful contrivance. ,  _ Karl's Clover Root Tea, for constipation it's tho best, and if after using it  you don't say so, return the package  and got voiu- money. Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  I    SOME HINTS.  jy. How often mothers are perplexed and driven nearly, to  fe*      despair by their little ones losing appetite and refusing a 11  manner of food when children will take  *S^  ���������4*  Offl������ __ffi  ������<3ff>  at nearly any time.    A cup of "Bovril between or at meals  is the most perfect-of nourishment to give the children for  :ci  The British Columbia Sugar Refining Company is going into the manufacture of beet root sugar. It is said  the raw material can be grown- successfully in the Okanagan district.  Because a couple of men have taken  a short contract on the Ajax, the Pay-  screak intimates the manager is putting on a full force. He says, however, he is doing nothing of the kind.  For Constipation take Karl's Clover  Root Tea, .the great Blood Purifier.  Cures Headache, Nervousness, Eruptions on the skin, and makes the nead  clear as a, bell. Sold at McQueen's  Drug Store.  A dance was given at Mr. J. Brown's  hotel, McGuigan, Saturday night last  in honor of his wedding, the bride  was Miss Donohue, of this city. Several S mdonitcs were among the merrymakers.  The Crow  Would it not be well for the Nelson  Tribune, that is death on "aliens," to  turn its- guns on s>o:no of the ''O'oeur  d'Alene agitators" who stirred up the  strife 111 the Slocan 111 the first place.  Shiloj's Consumption Cure cures  where others tail. It is the leading  Cougli Cure, and no home should be  without it. Pleasant to take and goes  right to the spot, ..old by McQueen the  jjruggi.t.  It is a moral certainty that if the  mining trouble were settled tomorrow,  the next couple of months would wit-  net-s tlie heaviest shipping ever done  111 the caino, as all 01 the properties  are well developed.  The Firemen's ball, on Tuesday evening nitit 111 Viiginia hall, was in evu-y  way a success���������large attendance, receipts above expenditures, good music,  good supper, and anything further requited was found in "the iree-and-easv  ioeiing among the dancers.  "1 have used rJagyard's Yellow Oil  for bums, scalds, lrost bites, sprains,  bruises, sore throat and pains 111 the  stomach. 1 always say it is a regular  medicine chest, it can be used m so  many different ways. Mrs. D. Williams, Gooderhnm P. O., Ont.  Slocan City has a Gun aud Athletic  Club with the following officers : Pres.  iclent, H. D. Curtis; vice-president, Ii.  P. Christie; secretary-treasurer, W-  Anderson. These oilicers, with J. G.  McCuliu,n Smd Chas. Brett, form the  committee 0f management. Arrangements will be made to use the lower  store of the Music Hall for tlie club  room.  It may be now* to some of those interested, but it is none the less a fact,  that none of the owners expected violence from any quarter when bringing-  in men. _ In some cases constables  accompanied men merely to have  tampering with them in any form prevented. Surely this is easily enough  understood by those who want to understand.  Christmas toys and holiday goods  are now arriving at Clifl'e's Bookstore.  The public- will bear in mind that, unlike some others, we have no old stock  to turn up again to purchasers, as during the year we sold all the goods we  had left oyer from last holidays. All  we will show the public this season  are absolutely new, and the largest,  variety to be had in Montreal.  Another cheap-jack show camealong  on Monday evening: with motion pictures    and   "toy"  graphaphone,   and  raked in some shekels. . He, however,  was more modest than tlie "great Australian sales'man with his 15 artistes"  as he sold nothing and only gobbled to  the extent of his entrance fee.     We  have been   informed that some   who  bought   gold watches  from the   great  Australian have ever since been wiping  the rust off the cases.     Would these  people bite at another Australian bait  tomorrow ?  My little girl, 7 years old, used to  grind her teeth at night and had pain  in her stomach. I gave her Dr. Law's  Pleasant Worm Syrup and it acted  promptly and with good effect. Mrs.  Joe Doty, Port Gilbert, N.S.  It will be the duty of every one who  has knowledge of the iacts to show  Commissioner Chite, 011 his arrival,  how fur the agitators of the O'oeur  d'Alene aro responsible for the present  trouble on this side of the line.  The Nelson Tribune man is not a  prophet by birth, whatever he 111113- be  by manufacture, lie. said last Saturday that Lho Slocan trouble would be  settled in six days. Seven days have  since elapsed, and no one knows ol a  settlement yet.  There are cigars and cigars, but if  you really want a good healthy smoke,  of a cigar that will not rob your purse,  you will use the "Tntenor" or "La  Morena" manufactured by tho inland  Cigar Manufacturing Co. of Kamloops.  One trial carries conviction.  How would some of those business"  people, who are working on the minors  to stir up a feeling against the owners,  like it if, when tiie trouble'is settled,  the owners would put in stores anil undersell them ? We do not say it is  coming to that, but we have heard  some whispers trending that way.  It strikes terror to a mother'.'heart to  have her ohild wako up at night with a  oronpy cough.

Thero is no timo for delay���������apply hot  poultices to tho throat and upper part of  tliu chest, and givo Dr. Wood's Norway  Pins Syrup���������nothing like it for giving  prompt relief���������will save a child when  nothing else will.  Mis.  V/m.
