 ^Vv^. ^^^'^  ���������G>:-  VOL. 5.���������NO. 10.  SANDON, B. C���������, SATURDAY,'OCTOBER 26, 1901.  -"'$3.00 PER; YEAR.  TTown Jottings.  The west end of tlie C P. R. platform  is being planked.  Mr. Hup'perton is adding a second  story to his building for a residence.. -  We believe the Lardeau branch of lhe  C. P. R. will be finished in about live  weeks:  ���������Mr.'Tmoman is now to be found in his  photograph gallery iu lhe Mining Review building.  A curlers'meeting is called for Monday evening in the council chamber.  All curlers are requested to attend.  As we are running off the paper Mr.  an.d Mrs. A. Crawford are enjoying their  silver wedding. Particulars next issue.  Since Dick Orando Jost his business  some weeks ago lie has been acting very  Btrangely, and some think lie ought to  ���������   be looked after and'cared for.  The Methodists have let the contract  for the completion of their church  building, and they will shortly hold service upstairs in a completed structure.  Some party walked through the residences of'A. Crawford and W. Wilson  on. Sunnyside the other niuht, but took  nothing. Probably it was simply a  night wanderer.   .  The council are pulling (he old flume  timbers and other obstructions out of  the creek before the snow flies, preparatory to roll timing in the spring before  the ���������freshets'setiin.  Mrs. Haller has sold the K. & S. hotel  at McGuigan' to Mclsaa<'s and Dewar,  and .they, take possession the. first of the  month. Mr. anfil Mrs. JTa'iler are now  at the Tremont hotel; Noison.  Messrs. Towgood & Bruder are overhauling, repairing and improving the  New York brewery, preparatory to meet-'  inj, larger demands, ' Mr. Towgood is a  pushing business man, and Mr. Bruder  is a practical brewer.  Oar Court of .Revision had a hard  lime of it wrestling with appeals. Of  course the law says assess at market  value'; but this is impossible in a place  'like Sandon. The market value today  is not 'more than half what it was a year  ago, and probably not more than half  wiiat it may be a year hence; and of  course no assessor can ehange values  that way- every year. . The only thing is  to get on a piopor pro rata valuation.  Why are not the city council making  some effort to-collect the taxes due by  Malcolm Gilbert Spro'at before the fire?  As we understand it he has had all the  benefits of municipal government since  the place was incorporated, and has  never-yet paid a cent of taxes. Even  though the books for the first two years  ''we're burned, there is yet a safe legal  way of making him pav every dollar he  owes, and the council should take that  way.  There is a general regret at Rev. J. A.  Ferguson, B. A.., resigning his charge  at Whitewater. He has been with us  for "over two yoars and has endeared  himself to all by his depot tment arid his  earnestness in presenting the Gospel.  On Tuesday evening last the. ladies fo  the congregation gave a farewell social  in his honor and presented him with a  .purse containing a 8uhtantial sum. A  large number from Whitewater mine  were present. Mr. Ferguson, takes with  him the best wishes of all.  The Canadian public learn with regret of.the death of N. F.-'Davin, of Regina, by his own hand in Winnipeg on  Friday last week.' Mr. Davin was well  known all over Canada as a most brilliant orator", and a clever journalist and  parliamentarian. He represented West  Assiniboia at Ottawa for two parliaments, but was defeated last general  election. Although clever in the respects named above, he was never possessed of a well balanced mind, and his  especially irregular habits of late may  be said to be the cause ot his sad and  untimely end.    ,  A Runaway- Smashup.  A sad accident occurred on the Iv. &  S. Cody branch on  Wednesday., The  engine "took up one coach as far as the  Last Chance,  and detached it on   the'  main line while the  train' hands .were  doing someswitching.   By "some means  the coach broke away from  its braking  and started down the hill, gaining speed  as it went.   When  near   the  junction,  near the Payne  ore house,''in swaying  the coach struck-a  bluff on the   upper  side, became destroyed and   the   rear  portion of it was smashed intosplinters.  Mrs..Winters,  of. Cody, and  her little  girl were on the coach, and whileit'was  on the runaway,  they had'the presence  of mind to go to the other end of the  car which was all that saved bo.th from  probably instant death, as that- end of  the ear was  considerably less damaged  than tbe other.   The little girl escaped  with a few slight cuts on  the face; but  Mr.?. Winter had ��������� her   right  shoulder  ���������bone broken,  and'received several bad  cuts about the head and face. Dr. Power  had her removed to her home by a hand  car,    where   she   is   receiving   proper  attention. Tlie general opinion is that if  the ermine had followed up the car when  it started,- it could have been overtaken  and by the- use,of  a   rope   or   chain,  thrown over the car it could have been  got   under  control  before the accident  occurred:-.The engineer  and   fireman  say the reason  they "did  not   start ont  to overtake   the   coach   was  they we're  afraid,  . on   account of   tlie   frequent  curves in the .line, and   inability to see  any dj stance -ahead;   they- might   run-  in to .tho, coach at any placo and  kill the  Tifp.upants.,.whichis.quite true.   In any.  rase it  if  well   thc   accident   had   no  worse results.  Lecture on Labor.  i A laborer named Stone on the V. V. &  E. R. R., hear' Grand Forks, had his  skull fractured by a falling rock last  week while blasting. ������������������  Photos.���������Now is your.opportunity for  Xmas Photos.    R..<H. Trueinan will  be  in the Studio at Sandon,'Tuesday,'29thj  until Nov.'4th; opposite-C. P. R. depot.  f New Denver, 20th and 2Sth. :  ���������  In a competition among four, Fol-  iiott & McMillan have secured the contract for taking down the concentrator  at Lillooet and erecting it near Sandon  commence  The Rev. Mr. Rowe gave his lecture  on this subject in the Methodist church  to  a. moderately   sized " audience   on  Thursday evening.   He is a good speaker and entertainer.    He" would settle all.  labor disputes  by'Christian socialism.  He'is not opposed to paying a man who  can earn it $100,000 a year salary, or to  a man'making millions out of an industry, if he does it honestly and after paying fair wages; but  he   is  opposed   to  making it at one end of a transaction by  grinding wages at the other. The people  who look for bargains   at  Eaton's   and  such places are, as the Revikw has always maintained, are responsible for the  low wages at-these places.   Consumers  must cease buying goods   produced   by  under paid wages,  before   these   wages  will be 'reformed. -He ia not in favor of  persecuting the Orientals; but believes  a minimum wage scale would cure most  of the   evils  complained   of   by   their  cheap labor.  At a minimum scale white  labor would always get the  preference.  He objects to  compulsory  arbitration  but believes in a. board   for  voluntary  settlements, wlich if all men were honest and .fair   would,  work   well.     The  speaker, however, had.no cure lor  such  troubles as have gone on in  the. Ivoote-  nay for the past two years.     Minimum  wages would not reach them,as   owners  could only pay what wages   the   conditions of the country would warrant, and  men would only accepttheir ideal wages  whether the mine owners  could  afford  to pay them or not.     The prophet who  can deal properly with mining troubles  i-haa.yet.to arise.     What   is wanted  is  some   means   of   making  owners, pay  high wages when they bave rich properties that pay good values and of forcing  men, or inducing them  to   accept   low  wages whon prospects and properties are  not rich and prices are low.     He  also  wants some means of forcing unions to  allow the thousands out of employment  in large cities, in destitution  to   accept  wages in other parts   that   would   pay  them well and enable the in to  make   a  little money.   ' These are   the matters  that call for agencies of solution, and no  one   appears   ready   to   grapple   with  them.  In Tunnel and Stope,  There   are ��������� ten men at work  at the  Idaho mine.  The Chicago No. 2 is to be re-opened  in the spring onr/a larger scale.  The "IrSix, Rock,, at  Whitewater,   is  for tf-a Payne!   They  will  the work without delay.  Some of our aldermen have been sit-  ting-in court of revision ,on the assessment roll for some days past, about a  dozen changes have been made all told.  As a matter of fact it. matters: not what  any one man's assessment.-' may be. If  all are assessed alike it does not vary  the.amount of taxes. If the.assessment  of the place be $250,000 and it takes two  'centsori the dollar to raise the amount  required by thecouncil. one cent on the  dollar wilfdo it if the assessment be  doubled. As,-however, the assessment  was made tliis year by a suspended  official,, while suspended, it is doubtful  if taxation will be binding on any one.  McGuigan lias' furnished the police  court with' a little new life the past few  days. It appears Isaac Campeau leased  the K. &, S. Holer there from Mrs. Haller, paying $20 down, and nothing more  since. Some weeks ago Mrs. Campeau  had him before the court here for an  assault. This was dismissed', and Campeau then went away taking his two  children with him. Before going he  sold what liquor and effects he had to  Morgan & Co. and they claimed possession of the house. Mrs. Haller on looking after her rent could find' no effects  and Mrs Campeau gave her some of  Campeau's clothing. In turn. Campeau  had Mrs. Haller arrested at Nelson for  stealing his effects. The case came before Judge Lilly here Wednesday evening, and, of course, he dismissed it on  Mrs. Campeau's evidence. Campeau  now advertises he will not be respon-  j sible for debts created by his wife.  Three cars of Antoine ore were shipped from McGuigan recently. This mine I  was on the shipping list three years ago,  and was opened,up again some months  back with a ���������small'staff.  Even the Phoenix Pioneer is lecturing  the miners of that district for patronizing Eaton's store in Toronto; but yet  they will do it. Many of them will  boycott the local dealers who do not  help them in their fights for high wages  and in turn bang the dealers who do  help them by buying from Eaton's, of  course the saloon keepers do not feel it,  as liquor cannot be imported by the  glass from Toronto.  '. Assessment work has been done on  the Eagle, Good Hope, St. Gothard,  Glacier, Gruttle and Golden Star���������a  group of claims near Whitewater. The  claims have been under development all  summeiyand some of them have extra  good showings. The Golden Star upon  which the most of the work has been  done, is located three and one-half miles  from Whitewater, just east of the Ibex  mine. A tunnel has been driven SO feet  taoping the lead at a 20-foot depth and  short drift ran into 18 inches of nearly  solid ore. Assays give $150 in silver,  copper and gold, with a. small amount  of lead. There are four leads on thia  property covering over 500 feet and all  terminating to the discovery.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon, for the week were:  Mine. Tons.  Sloean Star... 264  Ivanhoe...  40  Reco...........  20  American Boy  20  Sunset  20  being developed for a short time.  Mr. Warnerrreports a find of 10 inches  of good ore in- a new working on the  Wonderful. - ���������  The Sloean Star is shipping nearly  two cars of ore a day, another team  is now on thehauling outfit.  Harry, Lower and  Alex. Muir,  who.  recently leased  the upper workings  of,'  the Queen Been, have struck from six.  inches to a foot of clean ore.  The Last Chance has placed an order  wilh the Vancouver Engineering Works;  for2,000 feet of water pipe to be   used  increasing the water power.  James Dunsmuir ha? foreclosed his  mortgage on the Noble Five, getting the  whole property at about $200,000, and-  cutting out all shareholders completely.  The Silver Glance group at Bear.  Lake is shipping a carload of ore..  This property has ore that runs $700 to  the ton. D. McPhail has charge of  the work. ,   .  At the Miller.Creek the upper tunnel ���������  is in about 95 feet and good indications  of ore are in the face of the tunnel, and  it is expected that the main lead will be  tapped shortly.    Some two cars of ore ���������  have been shipped since this property  opened'.under the present management.  -,. Mr.-Warner.has:sold his bond-on the  Mountain Con to  the original owners, '  making a little nnney.   The property is  showing up well, -tint   he   still  thinks'  with  the low price of lead,  the high  wages of labor and unsatisfactory legislation, thero could bo nothing made by  operating it at present.  New discoveries have been made oh  the Alhambra and Condor claims on  Bear creek, near Spi'oules. The lead at  first five feet in width,, has now increased to nine feet. Forty feet of drift  work has been done, acquiring a depth  of 40 feet, and with 50 more drifting the  lead can be tapped.  . AH reports to the contrary, we believe  the Ruth mine will not open up this  winter, and we do not believe there will  he a bit more life in the camp all winter  than there is at present. So much for  the benefits of the legislation passed by '  our political tinkers at Victoria the past  two and a half years.  The Payne's new electric drills, were-  put in this week. The concentrator  building will be started on as soon as a '  location is found. G. A. Walkem, of the  Vancouver Engineering Works, inspected tho plans and submitted a tender for  the pipe-line to be.constructed in connection with the cyanide concentrating  plant.  There is considerable stir in a small  way up the North Fork, north west of  Three Forks. It is known there are  many promising prospects in there, requiring capital to work them and a good '  trail outlet. Doubtless'as soon as prices  of silver advance, they will be pushed  with development. A number of outside mining engineers have gone over  several properties with the idea of  purchasing or bonding them. Nelson  parties, it 1p said, are taking over some  claims that belong to Tom Rouse.  Lorenzo Alexander was up looking  over the Dolly Vardon group on the  North Fork recently for English capitalists. So far no deal has gone through.  This property takes in about 2S claims,  and it would be a difficult matter for  capital to get a hold of this property as  a great, number of the claims are owned  individual]}-���������some of the owners might  sell and others again would not. There  are as good showings on this propery as  any other in the country, and development has been going on from time to  time.  : \y '���������.vi^^a,l^..-l^)ii)ivWj^OTft^,wv,^l^i,a^^1.JB  "SOB mkM RBQlflSTS,  NEARLY TWO  THOUSAND     PE-  TITIONS IN TWENTY DAYS  Kinj  Edward    Receives    Begging  h������u^������, ������  Letters    Asking for All Kinds  of Favors.  Few people can have had a, greater  expurience   . of  petitions   than     His  Majesty,     judging  from  tlie  number  that have accrued during his     visit  ,to Marienbad a ������������������couple of years ago,  a visit that lasted twenty clays, and  saw on    an average ninety-four     petitions,   begging-letters,   and  written  requests for various favors.. forwarded to him daily.   Of .these 1,880 petitioners,  320 merely wrote for     his      oumo 1BW mouuls ago  Mr.  stuart  autograph ;    but no fewer than 260   Wortley, M.P., ;   presented a petition  hoped that thc result of each of their  jn the     British House    of Commons  petitions would secure for him or her  sjgncd by 36,000, working men that  a lock of King Edward's hair. That' was-440 vards     long ;  and shortly  they were one    and all disappointed   afterwards  Mr.   Balfour  received     a  goes without saying. f memorial  from Manchester and Sal-  Tho remaining 3,300 requests were ford in the form of a great roll 612  of the customary begging-letter per- yarcls long, signed by 100.000 ' in-  suasioa     with a sprinkling of pecu- habitants of those communities. The  thing in her hand:   Thc "something"  was    a badly written petition     for  help for     hor blind father.   Patting  thft child on the check and telling her  not to cry, the Emperor bade hor to  be of good cheer and drove off.     Tn  the course of thc same afternoon the  house of thc blind father was visited  by sonic officials and  thc desired  relief was     forthcoming,   as,  indeed,  it was in the case of the petitioner  who wrote to the Kaiserin'of    Germany,      addressing her effusion,    to  "Mrs. Empress, ��������� Castle,"  as follows:  "Dear Mrs. Empress, 1 am very    ill  iir Hospital,  and therefore'unable to  go to school.   1 have a oad leg and  must havo     splints..   I have no money.   Dear  Mrs.   Empress,  give    me  splints.   The     doctor says     I must  have splints.���������Agnes  Prcster,   Ackar-  strassc."  Some few months ago Mr.  Stuart  liar  requests,   thc  nature   of     which  can    bo gauged    from the following  sample of the contents  of  the daily  .post-bag ; received     at Marlborough  House : A request of $5,000 to    enable a    student of entomology     .to  start for    Africa ; a request by   ^a  mother for a dowry for her daughter  and   an   invitation  from  a     French-  diving-dress     inventor  to  His     Majesty suggesting that  the King,     oi',  as he was then,  the Prince/,     should  don his  invention and dive *into the!  Seine when    next    in Paris.     These  petitions,     it  should   be  mentioned;  were received by the same post.  That thc Kaisor receives at times  some peculiar requests can be gathered from thc fact that a young man,  a carpenter's apprentice, living at  Kronau, knowing that his monarch  was in the habit of granting a fair'  percentage of the pecuniary requests  of his correspondents, about three  years ago penned thc following < effusion : "Your Majesty, T feel in my  heart an irresistible impulse to tho  career of art. I need for this purpose one hundred marks, in order to  come and study at Berlin. I wish  to be an acrobat."  Although    this request    twas    not  answered in the affirmative the    Bm-  jperor found time to reply to a somewhat  EXTRAORDINARY   PETITION  he received from a ninetecn-j'car-old  girl living at Fischhauser,  a     small  village      in East Prussia.   The girl,  being left.      - "'    '     '  length of thc petition introduced  into the House by Sir J. Fergusson  and that forwarded from Bradford  last June did not transpire, but seeing that the former bore 511,000  signatures and thc latter 664,767,  they would presumably have extended, if placed end to end, from Kensington Palace to St. Paul's Cathedral,  a distance of four miles.  Thc shortest petition was that presented to the House of Lords in August, 1896, and signed by Mr. John  Bull, who asked,the House to racon-  sidcr the question of terminating his  tenure of the office of Superintendent  j of thc Palace of Westminster.

On ono occasion a young man fled  to the house for refuge, and tha  press.gang failed to find him. In  the dead of night Adams got him  smuggled away on board ship. He  lent him a sum of money and with  many expressions of gratitude the  young fellow promisedv to repay it  with interest.

The fact, of the'mat-  ter is we have too many representatives  in the-B. 0. House now, and  too  many  in all our legislatures for   t/mt  mutter.  "What we want is a reduced House and  equal representation.   The smaller the  House the more   dispatch   in   business  and often the more sense.   One has only  to look over the iirst  acts   of  the   first  Upper Canada-legislature of HI members  in 1792 at Niagara, to learn tho truth of  this.

Toronto,    '  It is quite diflicult to get at all the details of the squabble between the Miners' union and the management of the  Le Roi mine at Rossland. The unions  as a rule appear to think they have the  right to force any and all properties to  pay the wages they ask or suspend,  which is a dangerous condition of things  in any country, as the man who invests  his capital in any enterprise or industry  ought to know better what his property  can stand than any outsider. It appears, however, that one bone of contention between the Le Roi management and the uuions is the refusal of  the mine to pay muckers the wages prevailing in the country. As far as this  goes public sentiment will go with the  men, as the'Le Koi is not now anexper-  ment but an established mine, with as  good showing of high grade ore as any  mine in the district, that is paying the  wages asked without complaint. As far  as can be learned, however, this count  alone is not the only one at issue���������the  second grievance being'one of sympathy  with the smelter men at Northport.  This is,very unfair. Sympathetiestrikes  can be justified on no other ground than  a desire to muzzle capital. What argument for instance could the management of Sloean Star advance for letting  out its men and shutlingdown the mine  if Bruce White, one of its owners, saw  fit to pay miners $3.50 % day at the  Molly Gibson mine. Simply none, and  yet the step would be just as reasonable  as the strike at the Le Roi mine out of  sympathy for the Northport men. The  principle of "might being right" is never  defensible, not even in labor matters  more than in any thing else. Every  question of difference between capital  and labor should stand on its own  merits, and not on the merits of something foreign.  Nelson   Assizes.  One of the most interesting legal  points which has cropped up in connection with the Mineral Act was passed  upon by Mr. Justice Irving at the assize court yesterday, it was the very  vexed,question as to the interpretation  of the Mineral Act with respect to lapsed  licenses of free miners, the reversions of  the interest covered   by  such   lapsed  claims jointly owned, and the power of  the sheriif or anyone else to revive title  in a property by taking out a special  free miner's certificate without the consent of the free miner whose certificate  had lapsed.  The action in which the point came  up was that of N. F. McNaught vs. Harvey Van Norman, Balfour & Company  and F. Li. Stewart. The circumstances  i were: J. A. McKinnon of Silverton was  indebted to the defendants in the  above action. Judgment was secured  against him, under which the sheriff on  the 29th day of March last seized the  quarter interest of McKinnon in the  Hampton, Camp Fire and Plunger  claims, known as the Hampton group,  and located on Springer creek -about  eight miles from Sloean .City.- The free  minor's certificate held by McKinnon'  was allowed to lapse on the 31st day of  the following May, and as thegroup was  a co-owned property, the inference was  that the interest of McKinnon' in the  group therefore went to his co-owner.  McNaught.   However, to protect the in-  A woman has a right to be positive on  matters which are matters of personal  knowledge and experience. Every woman who has used Dr. Pierce's Favorite  Prescription for diseases of the womanly  organs is positive as to its wonderful  curative value, and confidently recommends it to similar sufferers.  Women who suffer from inflammation,  ulceration, female weakness, or nervous  diseases caused by disease of the womanly organs will find a complete cure by  the use of " Favorite Prescription."  "Several years ago I suffered severely from  female weakness, prolapsus, and menorrhagia,  and used Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription with  splendid effect," writes I'nnuie - Shelton, of  ���������Washington, Iowa. ������Glad I have not needed it  for a few years past, but if I should have any  return of the old trouble would surely try ' Favorite Prescription.'

McNaught claimed the McKinnon interest a ml on the date- advertised for the  sale of thcMcKinnon interest underihe  judgment there was a clashingof interests between the sheriff as representing  the judgment creditors "and McNaught.  Tne mait -r found its way into fhe courts  and Judge Forin directed that an issue  .should be tried before the supreme  court as to the manner in which the  lapsing of the McKinnon' certificate  affected the interest held by him in the  property. It was in.this shape that the  case came before Mr. Justice Irving.  There,were several attorneys engaged  in the case and their arguments occupied considerable time, upon the con-,  elusion of which the court gave judgment for the plaintiff, McNaught, holding that a free miner?s certificate was  personal property and could not be revived without the consent of the free  miner in whose name it had been issued  in the first instance.-������������������'  As the Hampton group is said to be  one of the best in' the Sloean lake district, and the ruling of Mr. Justice Irving on the point; the first that has  been made, it is said'that an appeal will  betaken.

It is not  suggested that the necessaiy tonnage is  not in the country, but ��������� the men who  control it do not appear'to be any too  favorably inclined toward the refinery  project and so far have not evinced any  desire to contract' for the delivery of  their ores to the Canadian smelter and  refinery. It is said the mining men resident in Nelson are now all in line and'  that a meeting of the Mine Owner's Association will be called with as little  delay as possible with a view lo securing of tho guaranteed tonnage necessary.  The tonnage is the first consideration of  the men behind the refinery scheme,  and any bonus which may be offered by  rival bidders for the refinery will be a  secondary matter. Nelson's chances for  securing the refinery are said to be excellent, but everything depends up^i'i  the willingness of the managers of the  producing mines te treat the new industry fairly and not play it against the  smelter trust for temporary competitive  rates. Although there can be very little  doubt but that the r'equsite tonnage  would offer in tho event of the refinery  beinc established the promoters of the  same naturally wish to safeguard themselves. This makes the St. Eugene and  North Star mines factors in the preliminary arrangements as the chief producers of lead in the districts and the  outcome will in a very great measure  depend upon the stand they take.���������Nelson Tribune.

Mr. McMillan brought some handsome  specimens of the ore that is found on his  claims to Nelson and  the samples have  attracted much favorable comment from  all  those who have seen them.   They  ���������consist of a  couple  of  pieces  of   pure  'native copper and some pieces of niala-  chite,"'a;airite and hizuli,  thw latter of  ' which is a mineral used by thc  natives  of the country   whi?re   it is  found,   for  making earrings and other ornaments.

Garments   Worn   by   the Old and  Young Differ Slightly.  The costumes of thc Dalecarlian  women arc unique, a. dark blue woolen skirt, very full and gathered in  tucks at the waist; u, white blouse, a  vest of red or green cloth, beautifully embroidered in colors and often  with gold and silver threads; a broad  red bolt of knitted wool; a long apron of red woollen, with stripes of  black, white and green; a, k'crchh'f  folded ihree-eornerwise about the  neck and fastened with a gold or silver pin. with many glistening pendants, and a headdress in the shape  of a cornueor. ia made of black felt  with red trimmings and streamers.  Long earrings of gold or silver and  bracelets of curious forms are common.  The men wear long blue frock coats  with full skirts, faced with red broadcloth and edged with reel cord. Hooks,  and eyes are used instead of buttons  of a Church of England parson. The  and the collar is cut similar to that  vest is made of the same material  and is also edged and faced with red.  Tho knee breeches are oi' yellow buckskin, ornamented with red cord and  tassels at the garter, which holds up  thick woollen stockings. Broad silver buckles are worn upon the shoes.  Tho hat is of black felt, with a low  crown and broad brim resembling  those worn by Quakers in tho United  Stales.  Small boys are dressed exactly like  their fathers. A coat with a long  skirt is the ambition of every youngster, like the first pair of trousers of  American boys, and he usually attains that honor when he is ten years  old. The little chaps you see going  about in long-tailed coats and buckskin breeches look as if they were  tlress-c i for thc stage. Little girls in  tho same way imitate their mothers  with skirts reaching to their ankles  and quaint home-made jewellery of  silver and gold. Every little girl  hof os to havo ii brooch with jingling  pendants. The jewellery is of simple  pattern the gold or silver being hammered into thin sheets, cut into  squares and diamonds and fastened  together with rings.  The costumes of thc Dalecarlian  women differ according to locality. In  some of thc parishes red is the  prevailing- color and in others green  and blue. Their hats are shaped and  trimmed differently also, and in one  of tho parishes a. sort of "tarn o'  sb.nr.ter" is worn, with a band fitting closely around tho head and a  broad top. in the Mora country the  men wear jackets of white felt cut  square at the corners and fitting  closely to the neck, with white buckskin knickerbockers arid, leather aprons to keep them clean.

The award decided upon by the  Board of Jurors was a gold medal,  and at the meeting held last week  this gold medal was awarded to the  Province of Ontario. Only one gold  medal was awarded, and the cheese-  makers of the Province are to be  ! congratulated on having secured this  high honor.  COMPLIMENTING  THE GENERAL  When General Moreau was in England he was once the victim of a  rather drolL misunderstanding. He  was present at a concert where a  piece was sung by thc choir with the  refrain :���������  ''To-morrow, to-morrow,''  Having -a very imperfect knowledge  ot English he fancied it to be a cantata given in his honor, and thought  he distinguished tho words :   "To Moreau, to Moreau."  Each time the refrain was repeated  he rose to his feet and gracefully  bowed on all sides, to thc great astonishment of the audience, who did  not know what to make of it.  has earned for itself THE GOOD REPUTATION it now has  and will always sustain.

Thc  victory is notable and is one    more  tribute to our dairymen  and to  the  officials who selected the exhibit. The  Department of Agriculture of Ontario  through a committee of the Western  Dairymen's Association sent over at  different times during June, July and  August  140  boxes of cheese,     which  were scored by expert judges.

"Good-bye, Tom," said Dcbby.  Tom lay on his bed, which- was  pushed up to the open, screened window. He turned his dull heavy eyes  up to his sister. "Good-bye," he  said, in ;j> spiritless way.  Her face softened with pity. With  sudden determination she drew from  her pocket a small coin, and going-  over to him. iaid it in his hand.  ".For the box!" she whispered. A  quick light darted over his face. It  was worth having no breakfast but  Tom's left-over toast crusts, just for  . the happiness of seeing that one,  short expression of joy and hope.  .Debby locked the door and hid' thc  key in the corner of thc window back  of the blind. If any of the neighbors  should happen to come to sec Tom,  he could tell-them where to find it.  As she passed but.of thc yard; she  looked back at the tiny rear tene-  . inent she had left. Tom's new wire  screen looked very"well indeed. And  it was so much clearer to look out  through' than the former mosquito  netting. She felt quite sure she had  not been extravagant to buy it.  nt was a warm pleasant autumn  morning, and when she had reached,  unlocked and entered Miss Lewis's  little dressmaking shop, she opened  the front window .first thing. Then  she sat down before it and began  ' putting tho braid on Mrs. Stickney's  new skirt'.' The owner was to come  for her suit at 10 o'clock. As Debby stitched, she glanced out occasionally, at a passing footstep, or vehicle ia the street. Suddenly a carriage drew up at the door and stopped. A stylish appearing young wo-  ��������� man jumped out, carrying a bundle,  and thc driver stayed in thc carriage  and waited. "It isn't Mrs. Stick-  ncy," reflected Debby, relieved.  She ushered in thc young-   woman.  'Miss Lewis is not at home, she said.  "She was called home two days ago  by her mother's sickness."  "Oh," exclaimed the visitor, "I  am so disappointed!" She set her  bundle down on the big work table,  which contained scveral-'partly finished articles, and looked gravely and  helplessly at Debby. "Are you her  assistant?" she asked.  Debby's face flushed. "I can hardly say that," she said modestly. "I  ��������� used to do Miss Lewis's housework,  by thc day., Sho saw I was interested in her work, and kindly helped  mc. I hape begun to sew for her all  tuo time now,"but I am only an apprentice yet, and do practically nothing-without her help."  The visitor still watched Dcbby in  deep thought, and her eyes took in  every detail of Dcbby's figure and  dress, not rudely, but with a studious, professional air. "Miss Lewis"  she said, "would never have taken  .pains with you unless1 you had been  worth her trouble. She is a real  artist, and could have a large establishment; but she prefers few customers and a small place���������. I suppose  you made, the dress you have on?"  she suddenly added.  Debby shrank back, with a mildly  protesting air. "I just made this  cheap work dress to suit my own  self," she said, apologetically.  "I believe you could suit mc. too,"  said the visitor, now gently beseeching. "You are a true pupil of Miss  Lewis, Will you make mine?"  . "I. could not; indeed. I could not!"  "Would you, if I took every risk?  The' other ���������dressmakers' I know of  would notplease me���������for this dress:  and if you do not, I shall be no  worse-off for your doing it. ��������� Please���������  please try it!" She rapidly unrolled  lhe beautiful dress pattern of tan-  colored silk, with exquisite lace and  insertion for the yoke folded in tissue paper. Debby's face grew pale  nt the imagination of herself cutting  into -the costly fabric���������       ' ���������  "I am Helen Eastman," went on  tlie pleading, anxious voice, "and I  am to sing at the Union church at  the dedication services-. I am to  stand beside the choir, who sing the  i-horus parts with mc,���������but outside  the railing, in full view. And if I  have on; a simply made but well-fitting dress, I feel more at ease- and  can s&glbette^   And that is why I  want you to just try���������and J will take  the risk. Besides," she hesitated,  then added blushingly, "some friends  are coming-���������" Suddenly she put her  hands 0T1 Debby's shoulders. 'T'lcase  ���������please try," she said, pleadingly.  Tom, watching for his sister out of  his new screen that night, saw her  coining into thc yard  bundle in her arms and a troubled  expression on her face. Thc brother  had taken a great interest in Debby's work, thc details of which she  always  explained  to  him. So  he  listened with almost breathless interest while she told him all about  her intercourse with Helen Eastman  and her own inability to refuse her  request. 4  "1 ought to have been firm," said  Debby, despairingly, "and not undertaken it.. But it's too late to honorably refuse now. Yet it seems to mc  as if 1 could never dare to cut into  that dress! I almost wish you had  not so nicely fixed over that old  sewing machine that Miss Lewis gave  me. If I did not have that, there  ���������would have been nothing else to do  but refuse, for Miss Lewis left all-the  work ��������� I could attend to during thc  day."  Tom's eyes flashed with excitement.  "Debby," he said, emphatically, "it  would be a great thing if you could  make that dres������."  After supper the kitchen table was  moved up close to the bed the light  placed on it, and for a while thc invalid forgot his twisted, useless legs  as, with bated breath he watched his  sister cut into the taji silk. Helen  came twice to thc dressmaking rooms  to try on,- but sho proved quite incapable of helping out in small details. When the dress was finished  and then put on and sung in, at  home, she could tell if she would  wear it. at church.  "But never mind,'" she said kindly  to Debby, "you arc doing your best  for me, and I am grateful, if I do  not wear it. on this particular occasion, there are other times when I  can wear it. . I have another dress  that will- do very well for Sunday  in case I do not feel quite at-ease in  this one."  On Saturday, evening Helen sent a  messenger for the dress. When Debby  ga.ve him the bundle, he handed her  an envelope, and was going away  immediately. "Please wait a minute," she said, as she tore open the  envelope. It simply contained money, more than Miss Lewis was accustomed to .receive for making a dress.  "Wait for thc change," she .added.  Jiv.j.i������iuijijjuw3tama  As she was- gliding across the common homeward, she felt a touch on  her arm. and looked up, startled.  Helen was looking down on her with  a happy smile; by her side stood a  pJcn.sant-f.uced young man. "Charley." said Helen, "this is thc young-  lady who made, all alone, this new  with a large j dress you think so' tasteful and pret-   ty."  Debby shrank 'back, embarrassed,  feeling that Helen had thoughtlessly  forced' thc young man to notice her.  when he might rather not. But nothing could be more cordial and happy than the brotherly hand-clasp and  pleasant smile. "When Dcbby had left  them, it suddenly occurred to her  that this young man was the "some  friends" Helen had spoken about,' and  she smiled. As she entered thc yard,  Tom, eagerly watching, saw her arm  full of chrysanthemums. She nodded  a, smiling assent to'his mute question  and brought the flowers in and laid  them on his bed.  "Did you mean," he said, "that  she  wore thc dress?"  "Yes, she wore it."       He    drew a,  long breath of satisfaction.  '  "When I passed by   Miss Lewis's,"  she went on, "I saw that she had returned.    She sent the flowers to you  and gave me my pay envelope.    Her  s  miiwm m  WILLIAM DOEG, A FAEIvIEE. 0?

She put the flowers in the pitcher on his window sill,  then prepared dinner, which on Sunday they ate together in Tom's room.  Dcbby told Tom about the church  and flowers, the sermon and music,  and about meeting Helen. The flowers on- the window 'si IA gave out a  look of encouragement.  When tho simple meal w,as ended,  Debby opened her pay envelope.- A  certain sum had been laid out, in 'imagination, for Tom's box,.���������a little  more than could be well spared; but  she wished to make the amount as  large as possible on account of Tom's  help about the dress. Suddenly a  low exclamation escaped her lips.  Tom looked up at her, and was  alarmed at her frightened expression.  Sho was reading a short note from  Miss Lewis.  "What is it?" he asked. "Don't  she want you to work, for her anymore?    Well, never mind," consoling-  The   money  a while, till  that  for  ' 'J  "Miss Eastman said," replied the  man, decidedly but courteously,  ���������"that she sent the proper amount,  and T was to receive nothing back."  Then he went away, carefully handling the daintily donc-up bundle.  Debby pinned the bills together, with  a memo explaining them, and put  them into Miss Lewis's money drawer  When morning came Tom seemed  uneasy. "I should think," he finally  exclaimed "that you might go to thc  church and see if she wears it!"  "Let us take it for granted  she does not, /Tom," said Debby  "I don't want to take, things  granted!", said Tom, with spirit  want to find out for sure!"  She prepared herself, with a sinking heart to go to the church. The  work dress and worn jacket were  carefully brushed, thc ribbon on the  brown felt hat smoothed out, and  Debby, at the ringing of the boll,  went out into the beautiful autumn  morning.  The church was filled with thc fragrance of flowers, but Debby did not  raise her eyes to look at them. Thc  organ sounded a triumphant prelude.  The simple yet eloquent prayer followed. Debby had not yet glanced  up, and now she put her hands 'over  her eyes: It was not till Helen sang  her first solo that she- had., sufficient  control oyer herself to look up for  the first time quite prepared for the  realization of her worst fears.  She looked immediately down  again, her eyes filled with tears ol"  glad, sweet relief. Hei- vision was  blurred to all things visible. But  that perhaps made more vivid the inward vision of Tom's triumphant.glad  expression, when she would have told  him, that'Helen wore the new dress.  The audience seemed to listen breathlessly to. the grand old hymn, sung  to them in a voice of unusual feeling.  ly.     "We'll get along.'  in the box will last quite  you get another place."  She    seemed unable to speak,    and  passed the note to him. He read  these words: "Dear Debby, I return  herewith the money for Miss Eastman's dress. You evidently made if  | at nights at your own home. Besides, I am very sure Miss Eastman  meant the money for you alone.  Wishing you a happy day, I am your  sincere friend, Jane Lewis."  Dcbby had by this time got out tho  yet pinncd-togethcr roll of bills. She  went quietly over to the bed and  folded it quietly in Tom's hands.  "You don't need thc box any more,"  she said gently. "Here is more than  enough for the wheeled chair."  Tom turned his head quietly toward the wall, and did not speak.  Dcbby looked surprised and hurt that  he did. not show any pleasure.  Suddenly, a.s she continued to  glance wonderingly at him, she saw  more distinctly his face. Then she  turned quickly away pretending she  had not noticed.  Sundridge, Ont., Oct. 7 (Special).  ���������The Echo of this place has published a signed statement which cannot fail to interest all who understand the full meaning of tho word  Rheumatism from personal experience. A representative of that paper  interviewed Mr. William Dceg, a  well-known fanner of Strong Township, who was cured of-Rheumatism  by Dodd's Kidiiey Pills this spring,  and he gave out tlie following statement for publication :  " For four years I suffered excruciating torture, during which time  I was scarcely an hour free from  pain. The trouble commenced in my  back where it often remained stationary for months, and so intense  was the pain that I could not lie  down or take rest, but ha.d to sit  night and day in a chair. Thc pain  would then remove to other parts  of iny body, and when in my knees,  disabled me from walking, confining  me constantly to my room.  " it was treated by several doctors and also tried many medicines,  without receiving any benefit. Almost iu despair I feared I would  never again experience tho plensuie  of being free from pain.  " Early in this spring my attrv, -  Lion was called to some rcmarkahl'  cures of Rheumatism effected |.y  Dodd's ICidncy Pills.

' Undoubtedly the sensation of the  week is the sudden and unexpected  depreciation in the value of Noble Five  stock, which on Friday week last wan  selling in Toronto at 9 and 9 1-4, to  rubbish prices. Even now the true  explanation ia not known ouside of Victoria, but this notwithstanding no dealings have taken place in any way of the  markets since the downward movement  commenced.  The announcement that   Mr. Dunsmuir had definitely decided to foreclose  his mortgage on the property is naturally  received  with   dissatisfaction   by  shareholders, who hoped  in view of the  admittedly line showings recently  disclosed   in   the  mine, that a sufficient,  production mitjht shortly be maintained  to   pay  off  the  heavy liabilities and  eventually admit of   regular dividend  distributions. These anticipations were  probably in   any  case  over-sanguine,  though as may be   understood, excuse-  able under circumstances, which was so  far as thc Noble Five was   concerned,  were peculiar.   The   course taken   by  Mr.  Dunsmuir  does   not   require any  justification.    He seemingly   was   not  only advancing all the money required  for the recent developments of the mine  without any assistance from his fellow  shareholders or directors,  but also the  security upon which he invested a large  sum under mortgage, has not (returned  him a cent ih'interest, for considerably  over a year, and he could hardly therefore, he expected to spend further sums  merely to benefit the public.   If there is  any cause   of  complaint   it is on  the  grounds that  shareholders  were given  to understand at the meeting last spring  that foreclosure proceedings would  not  be taken, provided the mine,  after  the  programme   of   development was outlined, was carried out,   and   gave   any  promise of repaying   preview's' expenditures.   According to recent reports the  condition   of   the   mine was never so  favorable1.   But it must be remembered  that Mr, Dunsmuir himself did not at  the   time 'confirm   nor   has   he.  since  confirmed tliis assurance.���������Colonist.  WasKiiv?
