Array y  VOL..5���������NO. 24.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  The miners' ball was fairly well attended on Thursday evening.  v The west end women contributed $120  to the city treasury on Tuesday.  The school children are practising- for  a show of some kind at the end of the  term.    .  J. C. Drewry, manager of the True  Blue, was here a few days ago on  business.  Mrs. Pye gave a pleasant entertainment to a number of young people at  ���������parsonage on Tuesday evening.  Sheriff Tuck has been soaring over  Sandon for some days. We wonder if  the printing offices will escape this time.  We venture the opinion there were  more turkey's than thanks last Thursday, althou-h the law set the day apar  for the latter.  Justice came near suffering violence  on the street the other day. Hot words  sprang up between two local justices,  but when one of them got off hia high  horse a better understanding was arrived at.  It is not true aa some papers have it  that the Queen Bess mine shut down.  On the other hand the mine made a little money for its owners the past year,  and is likely to be continued a shipper  the coming one.  John Daly, late book-keeper at  the  Payne, has "at length succumbed to the  ehaftB of little Cupid.    He was married  a few clavs ago "to Miss  Hall,  sister-in-  7 law to Mr. Zwickey, who was for some;  .���������"������������������ time manager at the Payne.  If the socialists of this country hope  '.''; to make anything out of organization  they must send along some better and  more argumentative speakers than the  man Cameron who spoke here Monday  evening. He said something about  state owned railways and got mixed up  in a harangue about capital and labor,  and that was all. His address was one  of the tamest exhibitions ever held in  the Slocan.  It looks now as if Mr. Gintzberger's  scheme.to give Kaslo a smelter is likely  to succeed. An expert i_ now on the  way out and his report will determine  the matter. Mr. Gintzberger has made  an excellent mine out of the Monitor,  and the company who own it, and who  will be largely interested in the Kaslo  smelter if it goes ahead, have extensive  confidence in his propositions.  The unfortunate women were pulled  agaiD on Wednesday and made to cash  up for the benefit of the treasury. If  there is disgrace attached t. men living  on the shame of unfortunate women,  that disgrace should also attach to a  corporation that employs the same  means to keep up a depleted treasury.  This is tantamount to licensing these  houses, which of course, the law does  not allow. . If these women sell liquor  without licenses, it is quite legal and  right to fine them therefor; but the  idea of raising revenue from misfortune  ia open to the gravest question.  It could  not  have been   striking a,  >. "missed hole" that occasioned such injuries to Miller and Faller at the Payne  last week.   The  opinion is that a full  charge in a missed hole  would  have  blown both men to atoms.   The probabilities are all of the powder did not go  off in one hole in a previous blaBt, and  that in striking with a pick the day of  the accident the balance exploded, occasioning the sad results.   It. is almost  proverbial  that even the best miners  often grow careless and do not take the  examining    precautions   they  should.  Aa no one had worked in  that locality  but these two man for some time, it relieves every one else from the suspicion  of negligence.  The Misses McKinnon have started a  dancing class.  Mr. Cliffe, of this paper, left for Victoria today, on a business trip.  Rain and slush. The oldest inhabitant never saw such weather before.  B. C. Riblet is putting in a tram for  the Silver Hill mine at Crawford Bay.  Mrs. McKinnon, of Phoenix, visited  her branch millinery store here this  week.  * M. E. Hall was up from Silverton and  spent Thanksgiving day with a number  of his friends.  The Roman Catholics will not build a  church in Kaslo this fall as they intend-  ad to do.'  W. E. Scott, superintendent of the  Queen Bess, received word from the  London'ofHce to keep the mine working-.  Chas. Hunter, of Phoenix, has been  in the city the paat week on a visit to  his firm's branch store here, the  Hunter-Kendrick Co.  Mrs. Miller wishes to thank the members of the Miners' union and all the  citizens in general for their charitable  generosity and sympathy at the time of  her husband's accident.  The general public are requested to  attend a meeting on Tuesday evening in  the Reading Room in the basement o  the Methodist church, for the purpose  of deciding whether or not the Readme;  Room-will b������ continued this winter.  Summed up Mr. Blakemore'B - report  on the Similkameen Valley Coal Co'a.  property at Aahnola is in substance  this: The surface coal is a very superior lignite. At points on the p'roperty  seams dipping towards the centre are  found that in character are bituminous. This leads him to the conclusion that in depth a good bituminous  article .will be found near the  the centre of the property. From its  lay, proximity to metalliferoua mines,  openings for railways, Ac, he consider-  it a valuable property. An expenditure  of..$7,000 on a diamond drill will expose  the quality of the deep coal beds.  Another sad accident occurred in the  vicinity on Wednesday,  but thiB time  it   was   a   Galacian  trackman on  the  K. & S.   As two Galacians were pushing  a handcar over the bridge near Cody, an  overhanging rock  at  one  end   of   the  bridge came down on top of  the  two  men.   .The one was killed outright,   his  body being   badly  smashed,   and the  other received such injuries as may give  him a very close call,   He is now; in the  hospital.   The stone went through  the  bridge.   Foreman Cunningham and one  or two other men were close  by, but  fortunately  escaped    without   injury.  There  are on all railways through  a  mountainous country rocks in cuttings  that should have more attention from  the railway companies.  Here and There.  The Centre Star at Rossland is going  to fight the Miners' union.  Rossland has two' cases of 'smallpox,  but both are being cared for.  Canada ia offering more soldiers for  the Transvaal and they are thankfully  received by England.  The wholesale and retail grocers of  Nelson failed to agree after several meetings.   War still prevails,  ' They have caught some of the parties  who committed the daring train robbery  in Montana on the 20th.of July last.  Over in Kansas the court orders that  striking coal miners must disband, and  the miners say tbey will pay no attention to the order of the court. ���������  The Canadian Northern R. R. is projecting its line through this province in  this way: Through Yellowhead, Ques-  nelle, Seymour Narrows, Butte Inlet,  and thence to Victoria.  The town of Fernie ia up to its neck  in trouble. The Orow's Nest Coal Co.  propose to build anew town of its own  close by, with residences for its miners  and stores to supply lhem with goods.  The Privy Council of England, in the  Manitoba appeal, has shown that all the  provinces can of themselves pass prohibitory liquor legislation. They would  have a healthy time onforcing such a  law in the Kootenay country.  Down in the first province of South  America (Colombia) after yon cross the  isthmus they have a civil war.' The reform element of the country styles itself the Liberal, and it wants a change  in the constitution. -  Over 100 immigrants were killed in a  collision on the Wabash railway, 70  miles from Detroit, Mich., on Wednesday last. Shortly after the collision the  cars caught fire; the fire finished what  thecolliaion did no.t.do to that mass of  humanity.  The value of Bradstreet's and Dunn's  reports are becoming more and more  valuable (?) eveiy day. Thos. Earle, of  Victoria, is reported by the commercial  agencies to be the third wealthiest man  in the province, and he assigned the  other day being unable' to meet his  liabilities.  In Tunnel and Stope,  The Rambler is installing'the new  electric plant.  The Lone Star group at Silverton has  been opened up.  Shipments from McGuigan this week  were Rambler 129 tons.  It is reported that the recent strike at  the Washington is holding out well.  This week's shipments from the  Whitewater amounted to 62 tons.  Red Fox 20.  The Boaun, New Denver,Bhipped this  week 40 tons, the Capella 20, and the  Mary Durham three.  W. H. Sandiford has taken up.the  bond on tbeNeep'awa on Ten Mile, -and  operations will be commenced this  week.  A force of 15 men are at work on the  Surprise in McGuigan basin. The. ore  assays as high as 1,000 in silver to  the "ton.  A new strike was made at the True  Blue this week. The ledge is four feet  wide, and ore samples taken out assay  30 percent, copper.  The Adla and Queen Fraction, adjoin-  the Galena Farm, have,been  leased by  J. M. M. Bonedum  and W. Smith,  and  have commenced work on this property '  already.  The Humming Bird on the South  Fork of Kaslo creek near the Bismark is  reported to have a fine showing of ore,  lour tons of which were shipped to Nelson smelter giving good returns. Development will continue all winter with a  small force.  Victoria Preacher Goes to  Gaol.  If we are rightly informed Chief of  Police Waite spent a goodly portion of  the past fortnight drumming up the  names of householders to go on the  municipal voters' list, to support the  miners' union candidates in the coming  election. As a matter of fact every man  who pays a rental of $60  . And now for ��������� a hotel trust. A company is being organized in Hamilton to  build and operate hotels in all the qhief  towns of Canada from the Atlantic to  the Pacific. They think they can make  money by buying all supplies for all tha  houses at once, from the eame manufacturers. We are quste willing to sell  out our hotel on the hill before competition is commenced.  Some of America's laws are daisies.  Over in Portland, Oregon, after the  death of a county clerk and before his  successor was appointed, eight marriage  licenses had be*en issued and eight couples had been married. On looking the  matter up it is found no license can be  legally issued by any one but county  clerks, and the marriages named are  null and void, These eight couples can  now either marry again or call themselves single, whichever they like.  Victoria, B. C, Nov.   25. ��������� Eugene  Brooke,   elder   of    Dowie's    Christian  Catholic  church   in   Zion, was   today  found  guilty   and  sentenced   to three  months with hard labor for aiding and  abetting John Rogers, who was recently  found  guilty of manslaughter, for not  providing:  hia    infant   children   with  medical attendance when they were suffering from diphtheria, from which they  died.   Brooke's   sentence was   respited i  and he was admitted lo the Appellate  court  on   the  question   as to whether  under the law medical attendance was a  necessity of life.   The members of the  Court of Appeal  haye   decided in previous cases that medical attendance was  so considered.   Brooke reraarkod   that  if he was guilty after the death of   the  children he must have been   guilty for  preaching    Dowie's   doctrine. .  Judge  Drake replied that he was, and added:  "You know what the law is now."  a year for a  house is entitled to go on tho voters' An inquest was held on Thursday on  list; but it is hardly right that the city the remains of the unfortunate Galician  team should be left standing idle in the who was killed oh the K. &S. track,  stable eating their heads off while the' when a verdict of accidental death was  chief of police, the teamster, is drum-] rendered, as of course, blame could be  ing up voters for even "a good cause." attached to no one.

But, as times and cooks improve, a pumpkin pie with the real  old-fashioned crisp crust and rich  flavor is not often iu evidence.  A good pumpkin pie should be half '  squash���������a  solecism  worthy   of  Pat-  but, nevertheless,  true.    It should be  rich and golden in hue with a shade  of red.    But how to obtain it?  One woman says,  "cut your pumpkin  in cubes  and  put in a saucepan '  with a cupful  of nice molasses; place  on the back .of  the range and let it  cook until soft, but    add no    water,  and it will be of the right color and  richness    when done.       Sift and add  two   eggs   for   each   pic.   ginger,   salt ,  and nutmeg to taste, milk and sugar |  until    the    mixture is  sweet enough ���������  nnd   thick  enough  for filling.       Bake  ' the crust first and then fill and bake  again.  But eggs arc high and there is yet  another way to make a toothsome  pie that will make a hungry man  wish a second and even a third  piece���������if he doesn't say so. j  ��������� Stew your pumpkin (half of which  is squash) until tender, drain and  mash with a wooden ' spoon until  soft and smooth. Pour on it about  half as much milk as it will need; set  on the range and stir until it scalds.  For an ordinary milkpan full ot*  pumpkin ready for the pics, roll to  a- powder four or four a.nd a half  crackers. Stir into the warm pumpkin     and     inilk;   add  two  cupfuls  of  NOVEL  PICTURE      OF  EDWAS.D VII.  furniture of the room is continually  knocking against them. Gold twisted wire is used entirely, and'the size  is governed by the weight of the picture. Any good sized picture is  hur<r with double wire, which is suspended from the picture moulding  and pass -"��������� through the screw eyes at  the back- of the frame and up again  to the picture moulding. Passing  the wire behind tlie picture makes it  more secure and also easier to regulate in height. Plain brass moulding  hooks, two for each picture, should  be used, their size also regulated by  the weight of the picture. Chains  are never used.  If there are a number of small pictures they should not be hung from  the picture moulding. It is better  to draw the wire tight across tho  back of the picture from screw eye to  screw' eye and then hang them on  small brass wall hooks or wire  nails. Either of these mar the wall  very little and small pictures count  for more in this way.  WHEN FITTING SHOES.

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1901.  LOOK  INTO   THIS,   GENTLEMEN.  This paper has no brief from the mine  owners, and does not get any support  from   any  of  them   that it does  not  earn, the total from them being below  $400   a  year.     What   we   have  then  written on the mining situation,  any  fair man can see is not for what we  niakeoutof the mine owners.   Our aim is  to make money out of the general public  through   their   having  a   satisfactory  business; and that again cannot be got  unless the mines are on a prosperous  footing.   The prosperity of mining, that  the general public may become prosperous,   and   that     we    may   share   in  that  general  prosperity,   is   the  sole  motive for the stand this  paper  has  taken on raining matters during the last  three years, notwithstanding the assertions of a few prejudiced ignoramuses  to   the contrary.   That.our stand has  been a most righteous one is fully borne  out  by the  facts.   For   instance, the  manager  of one  of   the   best   paying  mines in this section, and that   has  shipped steadily,   showed   the writer  the other day a receipt he had got from  the collector, for the two per cent, tax  during the last quarter.   He also showed us a memo of the profits he bad remitted to the owners, covering the same  period, and the tax receipts was greater  than the profit memo.   lie said that  was very trying,   and to add to it the  next day the timber man came along,  and he had to pay him for the timber  used in working the mine.   These are  the things that are crippling the mining  industry and driving it out of business.  The price of silver is low, bnt.it could  be got over if all other conditions were  favorable.   The Nelson Tribune never  tires of  comparing of the wages and  and hours of the   miners  here   with  those of   the  most  favored   localities'  across the line; but it is ever careful to  take th. comparison no farther.  The mine.owner, for instance, pays  from 20 to 50 per cent, for his powder,  candles, and machinery, more than the  Montana miner pays; he pays more for  all registration charges than the American does; he pays higher freight and  treatment charges, duty from which his  American competitor is free, and to this  is added the double tax; he pays more  for most provisions for bis employep  than the American pays, and to this is  added 20 per cent, for wages through  operation of the eight-hour day than  is paid in some of the states of the  union. In the face of this, some of the  business men back up the agitators of  the unions, and abuse the mine owners  because they do not work the mines  but a change must come; if  tlie public including the agitating,  disturbing elements of the country are to  make anything out of their time and  efforts. We think our position is sound;  and what we would like some of the  enemies of this paper (as we know we  have a few) do is show us wherein.we are  wrong instead of piling up their blame.  It is quite true that if lead was $2.50  or $3.00 a hundred the mines could meet  all tho obstacles we have named above  and pay some dividends; butwhen they  and the government are powerless to  advance the price of lead, but capable  of removing some of the other obstacles  the question is, why don't they do it?  We fully contend that if lead was say  $2.50 to $3.00, and that the government  CONSUMPTION  Right food���������right medicine  ���������right time���������these three  things are of the'utmost importance to the consumptive.

Chemists,  Toronto.  removed all Ihedisabilities including the  eight-hour law, the mine owners would  be scouring the country for men and  offering $3.50 for eight hours work,if ths  men could not be got less. .There would  then be no need for eight-hour laws or  other enactments, as the men would  have everything in their own hands as  a matter of choice. This is the position  the Mining Review has always taken;  it is the stand we take now, and the  only ono that any honest, impartial  miner must acknowledge is the best  in their interest and thegeneral interest  of the country. Look into this, gentlemen.  There is just one thing to use if your  6tomach is "out of order "and that "one  thing" is Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical  Discovery. The  supposition is that  you want a prompt  cure and a lasting  cure. That is why  the "Discovery" is  recommended as  the one thing for  your condition. It  cures promptly,  perfectly and permanently, diseases  of the stomach and  organs of digestion  and nutrition. It's  sure to help. It's  almost sure to cure.  It has completely  cured ninety-eight  per cent, of all  those who have  given it a fair and  faithful trial.  "About ten years ago  I began to have trouble  with my stomach,''  writes Mr, Wm, Connolly, of 535 Walnut  St., I/>raiu, Ohio. "It  got so bad that I had  to lay off quite often  two and three days in  a week, my Btomach  would bloat, aud I  would belch up gas,  and was in nwfui distress at such times. I have  been treated by the best doctors in this city but  got no help whatever. Some said I had cancer  of the stomach, others dyspepsia. I have bought  and tried everything 1 saw advertised for dyspepsia and stomach trouble, but continued to  get worse all the time. About twelve months  ago I was iu such a condition that my friends  had som<: fear about my recovery. It was then  I wrote to you for advice. You told me that by  my symptoms you thought I had liver complaint  and advised the use of your ' Golden Medical  Discovery' aud' Pleasant Pellets' in connection.  These medicines I have taken as directed, and  am very happy to stale that I commenced to get  better from the start and have not lost a day  this summer on account of my stomach. I feel  tip-top, and better than I have for ten years."  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cleanse  the bowels and stimulate the liver. .  MR.   BODWEi-L'S  CANDIDATURE;  A great many newspapers are now  throwing their hats in the air because  Mr.  E. V. Bodwell has   consented   to  become a candidate for Victoria's vacant  seat in  opposition   to   the  Dunsmuir  government.   That government is not  certainly all it ought to be, nor ia it as  free from the influences of JosephMartin  as the people of the province could^wish  it was, but these are hardly a defense  for'Mr. Bodwell's late decision.   In the  last  general  elections   lie   refused   to  become a candidate, and he was then  the chief boomer of the V., V. &. E.  railway, for the existence of which, the  chief object is aplunder  of the provincial treasury.   During the past session  ofthe'House, Mr."Bodwell, as solicitor  for the parties who control the charter  of that proposed road, coajoled, bullied,  and foamed in every direction, to induce  the Dunsmuir government to bleed the  province in  the interest of his charter  mongers.   He found  Dunsmuir  could  neither be lead nor driven, and now he  concludes   that   gentleman    must -be  beaten, and then all guard on the provincial treasury will be removed.   In a  speech he made consenting to become a  candidate, be outlined a new policy with  three planks that are very original and  deeply thought out, to say the least of  them.   One is that Oriental immigration  cannot    be   checked   by provincial legislation, which has been shown  by the late disallowance by the Federal  government of provincial anti-Oriental  legislation, and; that   it  can only be  done by securing the co-operation of the  Federal government.     Any  fool with  half a head should know this, but because Mr. Bodwell says it, he is declared  to be more of a god than he is of a man.  He next proposes to help trunk lines of  road only.   This, oi course, embraces  the   pet  for   whose   support   he   has  received; piles of lucure, and for which  there is more in sight later on.   His  third ereat plank is to do what he can  iu aid of the silver-lead mines of the  Slocan.   This, of course, is what  the  present  legislature  is   doing���������"what  it can."      '.'''���������  It appears to us that to develop  strength as a party'leader, Mr. Bodwell  should show something better than  these' glass balls for the amusement  of children. ��������� .  When politicians want to boom certain  friends it is not difficult for'theni to advance argument aiid logic most wonderful. For instance, after paying a glowing tribute to the abilities, character,  &c, of Mr. E. V. Bodwell, who is coming out as a Grit leader in Victoria, the  Nelson Miner says: "The platform  which he has outlined is certainly one  of the best that has yet been put forward." Later on in the article the  Miner produces this asoneof its planks:  "He recognises that the silver-lead  mine6 of the Slocan, Lardeau and East  Kootenay are in such a position that it  would be wisdom for the Provincial and  Dominion governments to do all that  can possibly be done for them. Great  head that! We suppose if the question  was put to every representative of the  present legislature they would say they  had done and were still doing all that  possibly could be done for them. This  is certainly a very strong plank in any  platform to recommend to the people.  It strikes us, however, the plank would  still be strengthened if Bodwell -would  simply show what he intended to do.  There would be more logic in it.

Silver Touches its Lowest Ebb.  Silver is now selling at the lowest  price which it has reached in many  years. Trading closed Saturday in IS'ew  York with silver selling at 50 1-2 cents.  , That was the decline of a quarter of a  cent during the week, and it. was a decline of'G.3 cents, or practically 10 per  cent, in the price of .the metal since the  !    first of the year.  The decline in London has been practically synchronous with the fall in New  York.   The decline in price in the Britr  ish   market   has   also   been just 10 pee  cent, since tho first  of the year.-   The  price has been lowered from 2S.07 penc-  per standard ounce, which was the aver,  acre price in January,  to 26 pence flat, f  which was the closing price  on   Satur-(i  day.    The   evident  disproportion   between the prices of the two countries is  due to the fact that in London the price  is   for "standard" silver  at  .925   fine,  while the New York price is for "fine"  silver.'  The avernge price for silver in New  York was 59.58 cents in 1S99 and G1.33  cents in 1900. Some months ago, on thc  formation of thc American Smelting &,  Refining company, better known as the  smelting trust, S. Guggenheim, one of  the leaders in tho trust, cave out an interview in which he spoke about the  prospects that the trusts would raise  tho price of silver, just as it has raised  the price of- lead. Mr. Guggenheim  spoke hopefully about the outlook, and  said'that his company was considering  the matter. The main difficulty, he intimated, was to do away .with the rapacious brokers in London, who insisted  on making the world's prices to suit  themselves. He suggested, however,  that the smelting trust" might be able to  overcome that trouble. Since the smelting trust got control of the American  field, however, the price of silver had  steadily fallen.  "There are so many causes which go  to make up the government price of silver that it is difficult to arrive at any  adequate explanation outside of that of  supply and demand," said John A.  Finch of the Staudard anil St. Eugene  mines yesterday. "On the whole it may  be said that the supply and demand  are the prime factors in fixing the market price of silver or any other article of  commerce.  "While there has been an increased  consumption of-diver in  the arts   and  sciences, the   supply  appears   to  have  steadily exceeded (.he demand.    A largo  portion of the increase in the production  of silver may be attributed  to  thc  increased development of  the bimetal.ljc  mines.    While'the decline  in  the price  of silver bullion must   necessarily  decrease the revenue of silver mines and  even those having biproducts.   I cannot  see how it will   materially  affect   the  mining situation in this  section, which  .is composed very largely of bimetallic  mines."

He Had Suffered for Forty   Years  from  Dyspepsia���������Food Became  Detestable        and        Stomach  Cramps Made Life a Burden.  From the Topic, Petrolea, Ont.  Few men in Petrolea are better  known than Mr. Thomas Findlay,  who has resided here nearly forty  years.- In 1S62 Mr. Findlay came  here, and before .the railroad connected with Petrolea he drove a  stage coacli bringing; thc early oil  men. When the railroad came here  Mr. Findlay engaged in thc oil business, but later he suffered from a gun  accident that disabled his hands permanently. After recovering from  this Mr. Findlay was appointed cons-table and night watchman for tho  town, which office he has held during  thirty years past. This accident  was by no means Mr. Findluy's  worst misfortune. From early youth  he had been a martyr to dyspepsia,  which finally became so bad that he  looked forward to death as a merciful release. Happening1 to hear that  Mr. Findlay hud found complete relief from his lifelong- foe, a Topic reporter waited on him to find If this  was true. Air. Findlav wns only too  glad '-.to tell his story, hoping its  publication might help 'some other  sufferer. "I ma a pretty old man  now," said Mr. Findlay, "but I cannot remember tlie time when I was  not in pain from pernicious dyspepsia and stomach trouble until lately.  As a young man on the farm T suffered all sorts of pains with it;food  would sour on my stomach and violent vomiting spells would follow.  As I grew older   my '���������'sufferings, in-.,  not   eat anything  kind of food     and  My system     be-  run down and  that I really looked  creased.   I. could  but the simplest  little      of     that  came-      badly  I grew so weak  forward to death as a release   rrom  my    misery.      One    after another-1  tried     doctors     and   medicines,    but  could get no relief ;  then in despair  I concluded to quit all and await the  end.     Meanwhile my   condition    became worse.   Violent cramps attacked my    legs,  prostrating me for    a  time.   They became worse and more  frequent until they one day attacked  my stomach,  and I thought my end  had come.   Unable to move and    in  agony    I    was    driven  ..home,  as I  thought to die, but after -'an   injection of morphine I. gradually recovered.   From that time on the cramps  increased in frequency   and violence.  Nothing gave mo    relief except   the  temporary immunity from  pain    afforded. by morphine.      I  became   so  weak    from    pure    starvation    that  death stared mc in the face.   Finally a friend said :       Why don't   you  try     Dr.     Williams'     Pink     Pills?'.  'What's the use ?'��������� I asked. 'I've tried  everything    and just got  worse   all  the time.'    'Well.' she said,  'yoii try  '.' a    box  of  Dr.  .Williams'. Pink Pills,  they cured   me,  and I believe    they  will do you good.'    Well, I purchased  a box and. started taking them.   After a little 1 tljpught they helped me,  so I kept on taking them for a couple of months when .1. felt.I was real'  ly. cured after so many years  of suffering.   My strength  came back,  my  stomach recovered its power, and    I  was able to  cat anything I.  fancied,  and    once    more   could     enjoy life.  This is nearly two years ago,   but I  was  cured     to  stay  cure.d.     I have  never had a sick day since or known  the slightest stomach trouble.    I am  confident J' would be a dead man now  if it were not for Ur. Williams' Pink  Pills���������nothing else ever helped inc."  The old adage,   "experience is   the  best teacher," might well' be applied  in cases  of  dyspepsia,   and: if sufferers would only be guided by the experience  of those  who   have  suffered  but are now well and happy through  the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills,  there would be less distress throughout    the land.      Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills   can  be had at all dealers    in  medicine or by mail, post paid,   at  50 cents a box or six boxes for ������2.50  by    addressing    the    Dr.    Williams'  Medicine Co., Drockville, Ont.   u_+ ���������       ���������  "Bo not smoke a pipe which has a  short stem.

Caesar  knew> the names of thousands of  soldiers in his legions. A modern  man of science often has a prodigious memory for special terminology.  Professor Asa Gray could at once recall tho names of something like 25,-  000 plants; Professor Theodore Gill  can do the same for fishes. Our  memory for mere words is in itself  much more extensive than is generally admitted. The average well-to-do  child of two years of ago has a vocabulary of some 500 words, and its  father lmay have thc command of  20,000 more. The 10,000 verses of  tho Rig-Veda have for 3,000 years  been accurately preserved in the memories of tho Brahmins. Not one  Brahmin alone, but thousands, can  to-day recite it, word for word.  Thousands of Mohammedans, likewise, know the Koran by heart, as  all learned Chinese know their classical-books.- The chiefs of Polynesia  can, and do, repeat hundreds of  thousands of words in their geneaol-  ogics���������taking days and even weeks;  for  the  recitation.

A   REAL   TALKING   MACHINE.  An Invention Which   Speaks, Not  Merely Reproduces  a Speech.  A remarkable triumph in mediani-  can invention has just been achieved  by Dr. Marago, who has succeeded in  constructing a machine that can utter plainly and distinctly tho five  v'owcls���������a, e, i, o, u, says the London Express.  Although many attempts have been  made at this, ft is only now that  success has been attained, and before  long, wo may expect to have a machine that can really talk. j  Of course, the phonograph is not a  talking machine, because it merely I  gives off a record that has already ;  been made upon a cylinder by an actual human voice. Dr. Marage's machine, however, creates thc vowel  sounds at first hand.  This machine has been constructed  so as to reproduce the interior of a  person's mouth while pronouncing thc  different vowels, using the plastic  substance employed by dentists.  These false mouths, as it were, are  made of plaster of Paris, and are  fitted to sirens giving Lhe appropriate combinations ' of sounds. Dr.  Marage then sets his machine in operation and the vowels are produced  synthetically.  Dr. Maragc purposes to modify thc  steam sirens used on shipboo-d so  that they will imitate the vowel  sounds. Thus different phonetic syl-  . bibles may be obtained which may  be used to form an international alphabet.  Another important application of  this synthetic process can be made  in the construction of ear trumpets  that will not fatigue the deaf,  cause they will not modify thc  grouping of oscillation adapted to  thc ear. Dr. Marage has also constructed the "acouomctor," giving a  typical sound of the vowel "a" for  example, which may be used as a  standard to which certain other  sounds may be referred.  Thus there are far greater possibilities for this self-talking machine,  ���������than appear from a first glance at  it. Now that it is possible to make  exact mechanical reproductions of  the human mouth with pliable lips,  perfect teeth, and all the wonderful  inner mechanism, it would be possible ��������� to use these mechanical word  producers on a magnified scale on  steamships at night and in fogs, and  many disasters may thereby be avert-  Uncle���������"What are you crying for,  Gcorgic ?"

It is now announced that the North  Star mine; which was practically the  last large dividend paying proposition  in British Columbia, will'cut its dividends in half.  : The following circular announcing  the reduction of dividends has been  issued from the head office of the North  Star Mining Company, Limited, Montreal :  "Your directors regret that owing to  a disagreement with the miners on a  question of wage difficulties have presented themselves which will necessitate  the  temporary  discontinuance  of all  work in the mines.   In consequence of  the actual reduction of the price of lead,  it has been thought opportune to reduce  the dividend :to one ancLone-ibalf per  cent, for the third quarter ending November 30.   This dividend will be payable on 15th of December next/.  "The directors are pleased to state  that the financial situation of the company is excellent,   The company has on  hand the sum of $230,000, has no debts,  and  posses   great  works which have  alwas's been maintained on an excellent  basis.   It is the intention of the directors, as soon as the question of* miners'  wages is satisfactorily settled, to push  on the work of exploration and development,   and  to  continue  work on the  old vein.  "The North Star is a silver-lead proposition, and the average value of ore,  according to the reportof the company's  manager, has been 22 ounces of silver  and 52 per cent, to the ton. In 1890 the  highest price paid for the stock on the  stock market was 112 and the lowest 87.  This year the stock has sold as high as  88 and is now qvioted around 24."

Payne concentrator  will be completed today, and that the  erection of the mill will be commenced  at once.  Mr. Garde has been most diligent in  hia efforts in this matter, and he has  succeeded admirably in having the  work he has done completed in less than  five weeks. But for the giving away of  the cribbing of the K. ctS. at that  point, his work would have been finished in about three weeks. He found on  striking rock on the upper side of the  excavation the K. &.' S, cribbing  logs were actually rotten. If he had  proceeded with the structure without]  further attention to that cribbing, the  whole structure might at any time have  crashed againat theside of the mill with  eerious results. He then set to work,  supporting ,the railway track with  heavy braced uprights,- all resting on  solid rock. He then in addition got  rock foundations for all large timber  timber posts at stated distances within  the cribbing,for the mill, giving it a lock  support throughout, andaverting the  possibility of accident later on from any  cause in foundation directions. A_ the  mill will go together as it was taken  down, the erection should make excellent speed. The roof and cribbing will  keep the earth underneath dry and  ensure preservation for the posts.  .

Stores at Sandon, Kaslo, Ainsworll  Wc know money is scarce this year; butthe old fashioned  custom will not be forgotten. People of all ages will send  mementos to distant friends; young people of both sexes will  remember their ' 'best friends,'! and parents will not forget Santa  Claus. Cliffe's Bookstore is better prepared this year than ever  before to meet all the conditions. To suit the hard times our  purchases were made in the best markets in Toronto, Chicago and  New York for spot cash, and "money always talks."  Our Xmas and New Year's cards are now here, and they are  simply excellent and cheap. Many of our Presentation Books and  some of our Toys for the children have also arrived and are on sale.  Most of the balance of our purchases will be in during the coming  week, and we know they will please everyone. We have a nice lot  of Workboxes for young ladies direct from England. They are on  view, and they are the best value for the prices iu the'province.  Be sure, in the interest of your purse, that you buy nothing anywhere imtil you have seen our goods and got our prices. We know  that both will make sales without any further recommendations.  GLIPFH1B    BOQKSTOREl,  Between the two Railway Depots,    Sandon.  At Cost and Less Than Cost.
