'  Hundreds Killed in Texas.  New'York, Sept 11.���������The following  despatch was received today at the general offices of the Postal Telegraph and  Cable Co. in this city, from General  Supt. English of that company at Houston, Texas: "Three of our operators  just arrived at Houston from Galveston.-  Chief operator lost his whole family and  is badly bruised. Reported that our'  manager and his family are saved. There  is not a pole standing on the island. The  telegraph line of the Gulf and Interstate  Railroad company completely washed  away for. 15 miles. Bodies rotting in the  streets. ITauling them out to sea. Cannot get men to bury them. Telegraph  lines completely wrecked. Newspaper  reports not exaggerated."  THE  JIOHKOR OF IT ALL.  Houston, Texas. Sept. 11.���������G.L. Russ,  a passenger conductor on the International & Great Northern Railroad, was  among a party of refugees who reached  this city at midnight. Mr. Russ said to  a reporter: "I will not attempt to describe the horror of it all. That is impossible. When I left .Galveston men  armed with Winchesters were standing  over burying squads, and at the point of  rifles compelling them to load the  corpses on drays to be hauled to barges,  on which they are towed into the gulf  by tugs and tossed into the sea. As I  Ielt I saw a barge freighted with dead  on its journey to the gulf. This manner of burying is imperative, as the living must be protected now.'?, Mr. .Russ'  story was coufiracd.  HEARD ABOUT TOWN.  Mrs. Creech arrived home from Nelson  yesterday.  In July,  20,000 converts   were murdered in China.  The Slocan  City Miners' Union has  been incorporated.  Miss M. Gintzberger, of Vancouver, is  visiting here this week.  W. H. Brandon, of Silverton, was here  on business this week.  Tho foundation of the new school-  house is about completed.  Mrs. Knowles and family have returned from their long eastern visit.  ���������Mr.'Fallows is now considered out of  danger, .and is recovering quite rapidly.  Mr. and Mrs. Sahdiford, New Denver,  were in the city Friday and' Saturday  last.'' .  Who would be a school teacher arid  bear with the complaints of parents  about children "scrapping."  "Bob" Green passed'through yesterday, on his way to Revelstoke, to, attend  the Conservative convention.  The Queen Bess has its regular staff  of men again to take the place of those  who quit on account of the cook. ; ���������������������������  The Conservatives hold a convention  at Revelstoke today, to nominate a  candidate for' the Yale-Cariboo riding.  Mr. Warner came near meeting with  a bad accident the other day.' A log be  was working with carried him down the  hill several feetj' bruising his leg very"  badly. Fortunately he will not be off  work long with it. ,  W. A. Caplen, under the auspices of  the Chamber of Commerce, Spokane,  has been in the Slocan for some days  past collecting samples of ore for the  Spokane exhibition. He is making every  effort to have the exhibit a success, but  wants the hearty co-operation of all who  are interested in the matter. To this  end he has made arrangements with Mr.  Sandilands for the shipment of Bamples.  All exhibits should be in Sandon by the  20th. They should bear the name of the  mine whence taken, the location of the  mine, and assay and smelter values!  This, in short, is what is desired, and  tho idea should heartilv be endorsed by  all.

He got  up and  walked  to  tho window. '  "Shcs ole, an' she's lame in bofo  hor laigs, an' she's' bliu' in bofo her  eyes"���������tho words rang accusingly in  his ears. "Weill of all the brutos I  havi; ever known, Kenneth May-bin,  you are the vilest!" he summed him-  s-elf up at ionglh, with characteristic  "Any    noise,"    it    read,    "willfully j  made, or allowed to be willfully mado;  any    unnatural,   uncalled-for    or un- '  warranted,sound.   .   .'   that willfully  disturbs the peace and quiet.    .   .   or :  permits the disturbance,  of any per-;  son or persons in the peaceful enjoy-  meat   of ��������� their   homes.   .   .   may be  punished, etc., etc <��������� j  "We have now to determine," con-jener8y-  tinuod" the Judge, "whether'the song I     u<-'  ma<le   no   further    attempt'   at  ! wi ik,   but   stood   staring   at   the de-  of the bird here present constitutes a  disturbance inimical to the peace and  quiot of the neighborhood "  The whites of Mrs. Baxter's eyes  were alone visible; her teeth were  chattering, her fat black cheeks had  gone ashen.,-  "Fer de Lawd's sake, Jedge! For  goodness sake, honey I" she moaned,  showing symptoms of an immediate  collapse. j  "The  lady  is paroled.

Looking down, he saw a line of  figuies moving along the dun-lit  Bidewalk; even as he looked, hand  caught hand and the farandolo danced  its joyous way into an open corridor  and disappeared.  Moved by a sudden impulse, he stepped (o his traveling trunk, rumaged  in the inner- lining of a compartment,  aiid  drew  forth   from   where  he had  a  "I ain' gwine ter be patterned I" ! poekctfoook containing a note or two  unorted Mis.

As she reached the doorway the bird ', th������ Pa��������� ^_t^l"a^������������forgotton past  awoke from hia assumed lethargy   and j     """'    ���������"~ '   " ~  forthwith proceeded    to    give an  as-1  founding exhibition of his powers. The  mewing of cats, the crowing of cocks,  the  whistle  of  early   news-boys,    the  popping of fire-crackers,  the   wheezes  of hand-organs���������all  this poured  from  his    -throat dn    a.rollicking    medley  that filled the musty court-room with  breezy    echoes.       The    delighted  bystanders applauded the feathered performer to the echo.  Maybin looked after Mrs. Baxter's  retreating figure, wondering -whether'  he might not appease her wrath by a  generous offering. "I must manage it  somehow," he thought. "Good old  soul 1 Looks like my black mammy at  home. I am horribly ashamed of mv-  self."  "I ain' told dat roomer nol hin  Baxter   was   muttering,   "an'  gwine ter tell her nothin'.

His room was Dlisafuily quiet. A.  glance across the street assured him  that the,;obnoxious cage had disappeared. The flowers were also gone,  and the dormei"-jwindow was shut.  The panes of glass reflected the moonlight   like   spectacled   eyes.  "Hal'* He breathed a sigh of satisfaction. He' 'blew the accurmuiated  dust off the legal cap, spread out hia  memoranda under the lighted lamp,  and sat down, pen ,in hand. But to  his astonishment he found himself  utterly uualble to begin the famous  brieif. He fidgeted in his chair, dipping hia pen angrily in the ink and  jabbing the paper with its point. The  Fire! Firel The sharp, insistent  ory aroused him. He sprang to his  feet, and the next moment ho was  rushing down the stairs. Dense volumes of smoke were pouring from the  windows of  Mrs.' Baxter's  houae.  The street was filled with people  shouting, gesticulating, rushing aibout  aimlessly aud tumult uously. The  fire-engines were just arriving up-  ou the scene.  "Where is she?" he shouted, dashing through thai; crowd, to where Mrs.  Baxter stood, paralyzed on her own  doorstep. !"The lame lady? The  blind   lady?   Where   is   she?"  "De lame���������O Lawd A'mightyl de  blin* "  "Where is she, you idiot?" roared  Maybin,  shaking  her    arm  savagely.  "Dpsta'rs, Mister. Up de back  star'rs. young marster. Run, oh  honey, fer de Lawd's sake, run!'-  He was already groping, his way up  the crooked back stair, choked and  hajlf-blind by the smoke. He darted  distractedly from one room to another; a/11 were empty. "I cannot  find her," he thought despairingly.  "She will pensh, Old, lame and  blindl"  Ax that moment a sound tar above  his head pierced 1 ho confusion. It  was a bird-trill of almost supernatural sweetness; wooing, tender,  dreamlike.  Guided by the sound, he leaped up  another flight, of steps and into a  tiny gailleryt-room. He had barely  time to fold its bewildered ocoupaint  Madame' ��������� Dansereau?" He smiled  with an elfort, and held out his ban...  Odertte had arisen to her feet. lie.  black gown .showed pitifully won  and rusty in the moonlight.  "You, Kenneth!" she gasped; then  as his wards and their meaning penetrated her.dazod senses, she laughed  gayly, spreading out her hands after hor old manner. "But, me,-lam  not Madame Dansereaul" she cried.  "It is Grande Cousino who is Madame  DaJiscreau. Sho was .also Odette Lo  Breton, Did you really think?���������oh,  Kennethl" ���������   '  '  Emotion ' of a kind wttnch fairly  choked his uttcramce kept; him silent.  He stood (gazing at her, his breath  coming and going convulsively, his  hands trembling. She mistook his  silence; and olaspmg her. aching  throat with one hand, she steadied  herself with the other, on Chicot's  cage. '   '  "Mr. Maybin," she said quietly, "I  am grateful to you for your kindness.  But for you, I think I must have died.  I was so frighlemed; and I could not  find Chicot in the dark. 1 could not  leave Chicot. He is all I have now,  you know. And the room was a  strange one���������"  He opened his lips striving to speak  but no sound came.  "I sew for my living,'' Odette went  on, lifting her head proudly. "You  have perhaps heard? My friends are  very good to me. I am���������very happy.'  She was panting now, and her young  voice broke suddenly. She saink back  upon the bench and laid her arms  about the bird-cage. "You see, I  have Chicot still." She smiled up at  him with the sidelong glance he remembered so well. Only, then her  eyes were not, dimi with unshed tears!  "I have only Chicot now!'' she added,  with a childish wail which unsealed  Maybin's lips; a torrent of incoherent  words  leaped  forth.  "Odette, forgive mol   I waa a brute,  a foolish,   unreasonable   brute.      But  I loved you���������my life, my soul!     I love  you. Forgive! Forgive!''   he  sobbed on  his knees at her, feet, kissing the hem  of her rusty  black.-gown.  I    "But I will  not have    you    blame  I yourself,'' she interrupted passionate-  ; ly.    "It was I who was foolish, unrea  sonable, wicked. But I loved you!  Forgive!, Forgivel"  She stooped to his emibrace,  Outside the tumult continued, the  labored puff of the fire-origines dominating the clamor of voioos. Within  the small court, pressed do win and  running over with divine moonlight,  there was a moment of exquisite silence. Then,'the Queen's Fool stirred  on his perch,, peered, out with curious  eyes, and burst into an ecstasy of  song;.  It was the prelude to an epithala-  mium. ' i  THE CONCERTINiAJ.  iThere Is nothing nerve-racking  about this war story, taken from "The  Relief of Ladysmith." On tho contrary, it is one of those trifling but  delightfully vivid incidents which seize  the mind even on a grand occasion.  As a column passed a camp, a Zulu  driver lashed out with his" long whip  at his males, and instantly let drop!  from his left- hand, with a curious  native' cry of despair, that cherished  Kaffir instrument, a concertina.  The column moved on; "nor all tho  piety nor all the wit" of the Zulu could  lure iti back to' recover the concertina.  But the leader of the mounted company, coming behind, noticed the ia-  strumenf lying cu the ground.  "Mind that concertina 1" he shouted, "Pass the wo|rd I"  He pulled his horse.aside ; the word  waa passed, a line o'f horses in the  middle of the company swerved, the  forest of legs (passed, and behold I  the coincei'tina lay uutouched.  The next- company  leader threw up  hia hand like a    driver in the'Strand.  ''Look  out! Mind   the  concertin 1" he ,  said. ���������-  -  "Mind the wind-jammer!" said one  man to another in tones���������as they  teemed���������of deep personal resentment  if -a rider let his horse's hoofs go  dangerously near the precious thing.  And thus all tho rest off tho brigade  passed, hurrying on to use all tho  latest and most civilized means for  killing men and destroying property,  and minding the concertina tenderly  as they went; so tiiat when, the dancing sea off legs had (passed it over, tho  co-ncertina still lay unscratched on  the ground.  Intense Heat and SViany Deaths.  Dreadful Sufferings Among the Poor and the  Weak���������Low Vitality Unable to Hold Out  Against High Temperature���������Safety in the  Use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food (Pills), the  Great Blood and Nerve Builder.  <Th.e very old, the very young, and  many in middle life, whose health was  at, a low ebb, met an untimely death in  the hot wave which, recently, swept  over this continent.  Is this not   -an   emphatic    warning  against allowing the system to become  run  doiwn in  the summer time? You  ..say:    "I feel, so weak  and  tired,"  "I  in hiB atrms, seize the bird -cage and ; have lost all energy and ambition," "I  don't sleep .well and cannot digest my  food properly," "I am,losing fleshand  i have, headaches." The fact is yolu are  depressed and debilitated cby the summer heat, vitality is running low, and  stumble' his  waiy  down  the stair before mounting flames 'barred the exit.  Maybin carried the woman���������and the  cage���������across the street into' the small  court of his own lodging-house. He  placed both burdens on the bench and  stepped back a little, blinking his  smarting eyes.  ffhe moonlight fell full upon her  baie head and upturned faoe. She  was thinner than she was wont to be;  poverty aind care had dug hollows under her luminous eyes', her mouth  drooped like a grieved child's. But  oh, how beautiful she was! how different from a'U' other women!  'Odette!" The involuntary cry w,as  one of rapturous amazement. It was  instantly followed by a formal greeting.    "I trust you  arc quite  unhurt,  you need something to build you up, to  enrich your blood, and to put new life  and vigor into your body. ''���������","'���������'  You cannot-afford to neglect these  danger signals, which tell-of a system  breaking down. You cannot afford to  run the risk of becoming a victim of  nervous prostration, paralysis, heart  failure or insanity, when a few boxes  of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food (pills) will  thoroughly restore you-> '-'���������>���������  By its wonderfully invigorating,  strengthening and life-sustaining effects, Dr. Chase's Nerve -Food (pills)  makes life worth living even in, the  summer time. ��������� It so fills the body with  pure, healthy . blood and new nerve  force as to overcome disease and its  depressing symptoms, and fortify    the  system against the debilitating effects  of excessive, heat,.  Mrs. E. McLaughlin, 93 Parliament  street, Toronto, states;���������"My daughter was pale, weak, languid and very  nervous, her appetite was poor and  changeable, she could scarcely drag  herself about the house, and her  ae-rves were completely unstrung, she  could not sleep for more than half  an hour at a time "without].starting  up  and .arying  out   in.��������� excitement. ������������������  "As'.she was growing weaker .and  weaker I became alarmed and got a  box ol Dr. Chase's .Nerve Food. She  used this treatment for some weeks,  arid from the first we noticed a,decided improvement.

FOOD TREATMENT FOB CONSUMPTIVES.  "An elderly woman threatened with  consumption was restored to strength  when all medicines had failed, by   a  rigorous course   of food    treatment,"  'says a . trained   nurse. "Upon awakening at G o'clock in the morning a    cup-  of hob milk was given to her. At seven  o'clock she sipped with a spoon a cupful of hot water.     At eight o'clock   a  preparation ot strong  beef  juice  was  given, to    her,    after    (which she ate  wiiatever ahe wanted for    breakfast.  At nino o'clock she took a    hlnjf cupful or thereabout    of    beef juice pro-  pared at home.     At110 o'clock a   cup  of hob milk,   at 11 o'clock   a cup    of  hot water,   aa   .before; at 12    o'clock  more of the homa prepared beef juice,  an egg, arid    anything    she    wanted  besides    for    luncheon.        The course  pursued in the afternoon was the same  aa that of tho morning, the hot water  coming at- five o'clock and hot milk at  nine o'clock. The patient objected to a  night menu, and unless she was restless she was not disturbed until morning.  "The juice squeezed from between  two aud three pounds of raw round of  steak was taken by the invalid daily.  This was cut into pieces about an inch,  square and 'warmed slightly in the  ovon, after which' 1 he juice was extracted by a hand ' press. Tho hot  water waa given by the physician, to  give tone to the stomach. With this  (treatment cod liver oil and cream were  given daily, when the patient could  -take them without disturbance'1 to'the,  stomach, together or with three eggs,  boiled or poached:  "Notwithstanding pathetic complaints that she could not look up  without seeing tho nurse coming with  -something to eat, and various remonstrances because she could nevor.be allowed to get hungry and enjoy a meal,  she thrived apace; and when' the  dreaded month of March came she waa  about the house, and at the beginning  of May she began, to eat like other  folks.

Tlie Mining Review.  SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1900.  ,   TRICKERY   OR   IGNORANCE���������  WHICH?  A great deal of nonsense appears in  the country press of Canada, because of  the ignorance, prejudice or both of the  publishers, but it lemains for' the print  up the gulch to out Herod anything we  have see,n in many a day. On tlie 15th  of August, for no other purpose than to  worm himself into the confidence of the  industrial vote of the country for elec-.  tion purposes, Mr. Houston introduced  a resolution as follows:  ''Resolved, That this house endorses  and affirms what is popularly known as  the eight-hour law, which provides that  'No person shall be employed underground in any metalliferous mine for  more than eight hours in every twenty-  four   hours,'   and   is  bppoied   to  any  THE LIBERAL CANDIDATE.  The Liberals of this constituency have  nominated Mr. Galliher, of Nelson, to  fill the shoes of Mr. Bostock, who refuses  to remain longer in polities. Even if  Mr. Galliher was an able man. which lie  cannot be, from the fact that though  several years a resident of the constituency in his prolession, he is almost entirely unknown outside of Nelson, it  would be a calamity to the country to  elect him, if opposed by any one of average integrity and fair ability, on the  other side of politics.  Up to four years ago last June, in conventions and otherwise, the Liberals of  Canada had been declaiming for reduced  taxation, reduction in j public debt, less  bonuses to railways, free trade, senate  reform, purity of elections; and in the  four years they have been ,permitted to  govern, they have been continuously  violating every principle clamored for in  opposition. Instead of reforming the  Senate, we find them pitchforking their  own discarded friends into it as fast as'  vacancies are created. Instead of a reduced debt, we find our bonded obligations doubly increased against the advance in Tory rule. Instead of free  trade, customs duties on our imports  average considerably more than before  they came into office. Instead of purity  in elections, one has to hold his nostrils  while passing through constituencies in  in Huron, Ontario, and several other  counties in that province.  On several occasions, the editor lias  had reason to differ with the leaders of  the Conservative party on matters of  policy, and often to quarrel with them,  allof which goes to show we don't look  for perfection on either side. For the  defects of the Conservative party it may  be said they were a long time in office���������  since Confederation, twenty live years,  against the eight of their opponents, and  it can safely be said, many times more  sins of omission and commission can in  the eight years be traced to the doors of  the Liberals than can be in the twenty-  five to the -record, of ��������� their opponents.  We need not look for perfection in any  political party, as it is composed of fallible men, nor should a party be condemned because,of indefensible acts of  its friends." It is only by.records that  parties can properly be judged; and one  glance at the records of the two political  parties of Canada,' should soon settle the  minds of every intelligent doubter. Mr.'  Galliher, of Nelson, endorses the policy  of the Liberals in the past,' and this  should settle the matter with the electors. For the present we say no more  about it, but will go into particulars as  soon as'his opponent is named.  change in said law whereby contracting  out of pame may be permitted, or by  which the penalties for infractions of the  law shall be abrogated or suspended,  but favors tlie enforcement of the law as  it now stands in its entirety and without any change."  To their credit, be it said, the government voted against tho  buncombe resolution ; and when the motion to appoint  a commission to enquire into the working of the mining laws, Premier Duns-  muir said  it was not  the intention to  disturb the eight-hour law.   For saying  the latter, he is styled by the local buffoon  "a liar," and for voting against the resolution of Curtis, he is styled '*a coward."  To be a liar a man  must intentionally  tell an untruth, and  to be a coward lie  must shrink from  doing something he'  knows  it^ to be hia  duty to do.   Fiom  the facts, it. is easily shown to any man,  who  has the necessary intelligence to;  understand ordinary parliamentary usages, that the premier did neither.    In  the first place we challenge the scribbler  up street to furnish  in the history of  parliaments  in  Canada, or any   other  civilized country for that matter, a parallel to the resolution of Curtis in question, the endorsation or affirmation of  a''law already on  the statutes, and  for  the repeal  or modification of which no  motion or movement of any kind lias  been made or suggested by any member  of the House.   Premier Dunsmuir knew  it was time enough to  affirm or endorse  a law, which of course the local inkling  ���������cannot understand, when its  legality or  desirability was questioned   by proceedings in  the House.   He knew Curtis's  motion was altogether uncalled for, and  calculated to catch the votes of the most  ignorant laborers in the country merely,  and being wholly unnecessary and for a  vainglorious object, he of course opposed  it.    For this he is called a coward and a  liar.    If the failure to carry that resolution  meant the   certain  destruction of  the eight-hour law, then there would be  ground for the attack made on the pre-  meir's  veracity;   but  as it in  no way  effects the law, the term liar is the result  of the superabundance of the gentleman  in the gulchite and nothing else.  If the scribe had only the slightest  knowledge of the subjects oh which he  writes, and on which he professes to  educate the people, things would be different, but when he has not, public men,  so far as bis circulation goes, which fortunately is very limited, have to suffer  for it. , If the man knows better, his  style of writing can be attributed solely  to the worst of allmotives���������deception of  the uninformed for the few cents it majoring in circulation.   -Which it is we are  Is tlie latest Note Paper <  out���������beautifully tinted��������� s  sold at Cliffe's Bookstore,   j  J.

The boat is  completely furnished  in every respect.  The   four state rooms  with  their four  double and foursingle berths are equipped  with everything oiie would desire in a  bed room at home.   In the dining room  is all that a dining room requires, silverware, glassware, etc., and the room itself  is. sufficiently large to accommodate any  party that could travel on the boat. The  kitchen  is complete,  too, and in fact,  there is nothing lacking anywhere.   All  of the rooms are carpeted and  the hallway is laid with  oilcloth.   Upstairs you  are in the open air, with an awning to  shield j'ou from the sun and a hammock  if you would lav down and read and rest.  No more delightful place to spend a week  "or two ' could  be imagined,'- provided, of  '��������� course; the boat is anchored in some one  of the many thousand  beauty spots of  Kootenay Lake.

It is to be rented to parties  and at a figure which  makes it within  the reach of evervone \yho can afford an  outing.   The boat  itself will rent at $5  per day, with a minimum charge of $20.  It will be towed to  any point that can  be reached from Nelson at the regular  lowage charge of 50 cents a mile, with a  minimum towage charge of $5.   All that  those who rent the boat have todo is, to  slock it with eatables and drinkables.  Nothing else is required by them unless  they   desire  a  servant, and   this   the  C P.

A GREAT TRAVELER. '   :  Hi*.   <;c������vji<i   I'.    .Morrison,    I'cKfii  ' Corrc-  s;>oiicl<-]iI of the London Times.    .  Aside'from the official dispatches  from Minister Conger and Sir Claude  Macdonald, tho first authentic news  to come out of Pekiu." sinca the foreigners were besiegod, is the dispatch  from Dr. George Ernest Morrison, the  correspondent of the London Times,'  printed in Thursday's Free Press. Dr.  Morrison..has had ,the inside track of  Chinese news for a number of years,  and several times before has startled European capitals. He is acknowledged the most' reliable correspondent in Peikin.  .Dr. Morrisou has led an adventurous life as a traveler. Ho is an Australian by birth, the son of a Scotch  educator. While a school boy he  traveled several hundred miles alone  down ah Australian river. Next he,  walked from Melbourne to Adelaide.  While ��������� staying at Melbourne university he went to the .Beche des Mer  fisheries' and .worked'..for several  months as an ordinary seaman. While  thus engaged he exposed the ti*affic  in kidnaping Kanaka boys in the  South Sea Islands aud brought down-  a royal commission which put an end  to the practice. '���������', This was his first  experience as a newspaper correspondent.  His next adventure was a 1,900-  milo walk across tho Australian continent, with' the sun and stars as his  only guides. The clothes and boots  bo wore on this trip are now in the  Melbourne Museum. He explored  New Guinea for a Melbourne paper  and was wounded in an ambush, necessitating a trip to England for surgical aid.  ��������� He took up medicine, in 1887, arid received his M. D. in 1895. While a  medical student Stanley asked him to  accompany' him to Africa, but ho declined. After a tramp through various islands of the West Indies hewerit  to* England and became a hospital  surgeon.  In 1893 he traveled through'China,  Japan and the Philippine Islands,  and in 1894 made a wonderful journey  on foot from. Shanghai to Burmah,  being dressed as a Chinaman and  without an interpreter. Ho accomplished the 3,000 miles in 100 days and  at a cost of less than ������100. His adventures oa this trip are told in a  book, "An Australian in China." He  was appointed tho correspondent of  the Times at Pekinl in 1895.

CHINA'S   FLOATING   HOUSES.  There arei to be found in China at all  cities and towns on the banks of rivers  and creeks, what may be called floating hotels. They are large boats .of  special construction, and are called  Chee-Tung' Teng;. As the rivers ..and  creeks may be said to be the highways...  of the country,,these boat's:are of great ,���������  service to travellei*s. The gates of  cities and towns are invariably closed  ab an early hour of th'e evening, and  should a passenger boat arrive at a  city by night, the passengers would be  unable to disembark until the next  morning were ib not for the conveni-s  once of these, floating hotels.  There are, alao large boats on the  Canton river,called by the. Chinese  Wang-Laii and by the foreigners  flower boata. These boats are neither,  mare nor less than floating houses,  and they are often richly'carved and  gilded. At night, when illuminated,  they present a gay and animated appearance. These heats are the resort  in the evening of citizens who are disposed to make merry. It is not considered decorous for a Chinese gentleman to invite friends to dinner at his  family residence, excepting on the  marriage of a son or daughter, or  when honouring the natal.anniversary  of a member of his family. He therefore issues cards of invitation to his  friends to meet him at dinner on board  a certain flower boat. The dinner is  cooked in a large floating kitchen  anchored near. At such banquets  there are ' invariably a number of:  public singing women.  i  "H -  :  i"  f  -- fa-1  4  Mi  I  :!:'  it  Hi*  f!  ���������si  i  I'  '4:  ,"'���������'  f.

Among the varied treasures of the  Shah perhaps the Peacock Throne  ought to be accorded premier place.  The frame is entirely of silver, and  above it (the 'gleams of silver melt  into molten gold. It is encrusted  from end to end and from top to bottom with diamonds. The rug on  which the Shah xep-osea- is edged  with amethysts, and tho pillow on  which he reclines hia Imperial head is  fringed with pearls. Some travellers,  Burton amongst them have estimated the value of the Peacock Throne at  ������5,000,000.  A trade journal estimates the American "output" of bocycles for the past  year at about eight hundred and fifty,  thousand wheels. More than one  hundred thousand were exported, and  about seven hundred thousand were  reserved for home consumption. Yet  the bicycle is now no novelty. It looks  as if the people who have supposed and  declared that wheeling was merely a  temporary fad would have to own  themselves beaten, and aim their  dismal predictions at the motor-cycle  and the automobile.    .'-.'���������'  Siberia has recently furnished a new  game-bird for the epicures of Europe.  It is called the Siberian partridge, and  is, "found in bhte mountains south of  Omsk in southern Siberia, but its  original homo is said to be Manchuria.  Its principal food consists of wild nuts,  which give an exquisite flavor to its  flesh.

Beauty IMiaiipcnrs When (he Uses lire Dull,  the Sklii .Sallow, -mil ih<; Wrlnklei Keel n Io Appear���������How One Woman Be'  sained Ucnlfh and Comeliness.  Almost every "woman at  tne'    Dead  of a home meets daily with innumerable little worries   in   her   household  affairs.     They inay be  too small    to  notice an hour  afterwrds  but   it    is  neverthele as   these     constant    little  worries   that    make so many women;  look  prematurely   old.      Their   effect  may be noticed in   pick   or    nervous  headaches, fickle appetite, a feeling of  constant weariness, pains in the back  and lions, or in a   sallow) 'con������p**exion,  and    the   coming of wrinkles, which  every woman ,who desires comeliness  dreads.     To those thus afflicted   Dr.  Williams'     Pink Pills   offer a speedy  and certain    cure ;    a restoration   of  color bo the cheeks, brightness to   the  eye, a healthy appetite, and "a    sense  of freedom from  weariness.  Among the thousands    of   Canadian  women who have found   new   health  and new strength' through the use of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills-is-Mrs. Francis    Poirier, of Valleyfield, Que.   Mrs.  Poirier was a sufferer for upwards of  seven years; she had taken treatment  from several doctors, and had used a.  number of advertised medicines,    but  with' no good   results.     Mrs.   Poirier  says:���������"Only  women who suffer as I  did can understand the misery I    en-  ftlu'red for years. .   As tame went    on  and the doctors    I consulted, and the  medicines I used  did not help me,    I  despaired of    ever    regaining health.  There  were very  few- days that  I did  not   sufferer from violent   headaches,  and fife least exertion would -im'ako my  heart palpitate violently.      My otora1-  ach  seemed  disordered, and I  almost  loathed  the  food  I forced  myself   to  est, I   was very   pale,  and frequently  my limbs would swell so nutuch that  I    feared   that   my   trouble   was  developing   into   dropsy.   I  had  almost  constant pains in the back and loins.  It was while   I   was in this sad condition   that  I read in   La   Presse of  the  cure  of   a   woman  whose  symptoms were much liko    mine   through  the  use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.  I told my husband, and lie urged me  to  try   them, and   at   once   got   me  ihree boxes.   Before I had used   them  aH   I felt   better,  and  I got   another  supply  of  the pills.    At   the   end   of  the month I was strong   enough    to  do my household work, and before another   month   had passed  I    had   entirely recovered my health.   I am sorry that I did not  learn of Dr.   Williams' Pink Pills sooner,  for I know  that  thoy  would have saved me several  years  of   sickness   and    misery,  and I feel  lh.it I cannot too strongly  urge other sick women to use them."  The     condition    indicated in    Mrs.  Poirier's- case  shows  that   the   blood  and nerves needed attention, and for  this purpose Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  are  woman's  best friend.    They    are  particularly adapted  to cure the ailments   from   \\*hlch so   many   women  suffer in silence.   Through the use of  these pills the blood is enriched,  the "  nerves made   strong,   and    the    rich  glow   of   health brought back to pale  and  sallow  cheeks.    There would    be  less  suffering  if women   would give  these   pills   a fair'trial.

Mayor Pitts is  moving into his new  store these days.  Over 5000 people were killed in the  Galveston, Texas, storm.  ��������� ,J. R. Koberts is now president of the  Silverton miners' union.  There is talk of resuming operations  on the Exchequer mine.  A Conservative convention is being  held at Revelstoke today.  The Rossiand miners'ciinion wants information of "Kid" Allen.  Grand Forks has defeated Nelson at  football by three goals to one.  The English Church clergy had. an  executive meeting in Kaslo this week.  The flume from Sandon Creek to the  Ivanhoe concentrator is well under way.  J. Donaldson, druggist, this city,  played baseball in Silverton on Labor  Day.  James Williamson and Main Bros,  have moved into Williamson's new  block.  Wonder if John Houston will swear as  usual in the presence o������ the Governor-  General.'  Dan Goebel, of Nakusp, was taken to  Nelson hospital, suffering with typhoid  fever, this week.  Ward McDonald has been looking  after some properties on Slocan Lake, in  which he is interested.  The next thing in order will be a spur  from the main line of the C. P. R. to the  Ivanhoe concentrator.  Hugh John Macdonald is opposing  Clifford Sifton in Brandon constituency,  and he will defeat him.  The authorities at Victoria are arresting Japs who have taken out naturalization papers fraudulently.  Campbell Johnson, owner of the Bondholder, near Silverton, is going to work  that property extensively.  The new C. P. R. depot will soon be  completed, and the passenger trains all  corning in on the west side.  A Hamilton, (Ont.) justice has decided that poker is not a gambling game.  This is trood news for the tin horns.  It is not improbable the Methodists  may rebuild then- church this fall, but  nothing is yet definitely agreed upon.  Mr. Petty says he has nothing more  to say of the Monitor bond until he  hears further from the gentlemen taking it.  A laborer at Movie, has been arrested  for bigamy. We suppose it was the  broomsticks of the two women that gave  him that name.      ' ,  Silverton is going to have a club  swinging club. Hope the club swingers  will not all be married women ; if they  are it will be bad for the bald heads of  that town.  J. D. Carlyle and O. D. Sutherland, of  Kaslo, were arrested but subsequently  let out on bail, over the possession of  some- mining books. Surely not the  books of the Sandon Miners' Union.  Pugilism is detestable from '������������������every  point of view. Corbett has been divorced from one wife, and now Mrs.  McCoy is applying for a divorce from, the  ''Kid.'' She says he sold out his friends  in his larst fight with Corbett. So it is  line all round.  Nelson Miners' Union No. 96, elected  officers on Saturday ninht, the appointments being as follows: Ed.

The other evening a miner, a foreigner, was brutally assaulted in one of the  city saloons, by a number of parties who  do the principal part of their work that  wav. Warrants have been issued for  their arrest, but they have fled to the  bills. However, Warrants keep, and  theso offenders will yet either have to  face the music, or give this place a wide  berth. This kind of thing might pass  in the Cocur de 'Alenes, but it will never  do iii a British possession, and the sooner such parties learn this the better for  themselves and their purees.      .
