Although the mines are increasing  ���������their working force, . it does not> appear  to improve business much in town.  Notwithstanding tbe fact.that many  of the mines are not working large  forces, there are but few idle men in  town.  Our justice mill appears, to he sadly  out of joint these times, as. there is  scarcely enough doing to pay the Beak's  salary.  Mr. M. L. Grimmett is renovating his  residence preparatory to Mrs. Grim-  met's return from her summer residence  at New Denver.  Sailor Jack is in town again. Probably he will run for alderman next year,  as there is no one else in town who will  want tlie position.  Milk took a tumble on Monday, but it  did not relieve the citizens much. It  was only a case ofTattrie's horse running  away, bringing the milk van to grief..  Some one must have Been times  brightenine, as Mr. Tattrie has received  a   cash   offer   for  his   interest in the  The Noble Five flume is being repaired.  The Monitor has a car of ore readyfor  shipment.  ,The Star has now about 40 men working and the Payne a few more than  that.  A slight accident happened to the  Whitewater mill machinery last week,  it was in running shape again in a few  hours.  The blacksmith shop at No. 4 tunnel  of the Wonderful went up in a blaze on  Wednesday night entailing a loss of  about $300".  Mr. Wethered, secretary of the New  Zealand Minerals Co., is shortly to visit  the Whitewater mine, of which he is a  large shareholder.  .-J. P. Martin, the cigarmaker, arrived  in town yesterday. He. is- not sure  whether he will start his cigar factory  up again at present.  The Star mine has now one of the  most complete laboratories of its own to  be found in the province, and all the  sampling is done on the premises.  Ashnola is the name ofthe new town-  site located at the Similkameen Valley  Coal Co.'s mines, and is owned by the  same company. Lots are now foi sale  on the market.

He will, however, likely keep  it to himself.  Mr. and Mrs. David Heap have returned from Banff, where Mr. Heap  spent a few months in search of health.

For further particulars and  prospectus apply to  Wm. W. Fallows,  '   SANDON.  Official Agent /or Slocan District,  Since* the concentrators have shut  down,.and the tailings giving a mineral  effect to the water, are kept out of the  creek, .trout are found at nearly all  points between Sandon and Three  Forks. In. fact some fish have been  caught just above and below the flume.  The ladies of the Catholic church will  hold a bazaar in the Miners' union hall  on Saturday, 5th of October. A voting  contest for a gold watch will he a leading feature. MisR Minnie McKinnon  and Miss Julia McDonald are the two  who enter the eotenst, the most pdpular  lady after the ballots are counted gets  the watch. A good supper will be  served.  The Similkameen Valley Coal Co. in  which -many Sandonitea are largely  interested, its turning out a good success.  A large block of the property was sold  in Toronto some time ago and 20.000  shares were sold in Nelson the other  day at 25 cents. Mr. Pitts was in town  Tuesday to arrange for the sale of stock  in this city. Mr. Fallows is looking  after the matter.  On the occasion of the Spokanelnter-  state fair, Sept. 10th to 21st inclusive,  the K. & S.

They, however; gave an exhibition of drilling, going 43 inches in about  ten minutes when the rock split. They  feel'so confidenct of their prowess, they  have decided to compete in the various  drilling contests,at the Elks'fair-in Spokane, and will no doubt be pitted  against the best drillers in the Western  States. A purse of $1,000 will be hung  for the contest, and the boys will of  course have their eyes cast upon this  envious prize.  Payne's Progress.  Mr. Garde, of the Payne, is of the  opinion the price of lead is likely to advance in the English market, and with  a refinery at a suitable point in Canada,  the changed conditions would lead to  extensive work in the Slocan, even at  small profits. Mr. Garde is going to  New York to meet his wife and family,  who will make their home on arrival at  the Payne residence. In the course of  a couple of months the Payne will open  up 6, 7 and 8 levels, and produce large  ore bodies below former workings. A  shaft is now being sunk at the north  side of the mountain between 5 and 8  levela. A comprsssor at the portals of  No. 5 tunnel operates a hoist by air. A  new two drill electric plant has recently  been put in for a thorough trial. If  these Durkee drills work well, larger  plants will be put in. Mr. Garde believes electric drills will be the solution  of cheap mining in the Slocan. The  Payne people are not going to build a  concentrator, as they find after experiment the mine has but little ore that  can be put through a mill at a profit,  The regular meeting of the city council was held on Tuesday evening; September 3rd. Present, Aldermen Jalland,  Cameron. Duffy and Folliott, Jalland  took the chair.  City Clerk Lyons, acting as returning  officer, stated that no nominations were  handed in to,him, and consequentlv no  election took place,  The aldermen then appointed Robt."  Cunning an aldermen, he accepted the  position and took his seat at the board.  The following communications were  received:���������  From D. D. McLeod, applying for the  position as chief of police.  Frorn E. A.' Cameron, withdrawing  his account for labor on the creek, removing the jam.  From E. A. Brown, certifying to the  completion of the city hall building contract for Folliott & McMillan.  Reports were received from F. C.  Sewell (re city books), finance corri-  initee and scavenger. The police report  for July and August has not been'  sent in. W. H. Lilly's statement was  laid over till next meeting.  Tlie court of revision takes place on  Saturday, the 19th of October, and the  assessment roll is to be in by the 9th of  this month.  Alderman Cameron gave notice that  he would at the next meeting move an  amendment to bylaw No. 22, reducing  tbe hawker and peddler license from  $250 to $1Q0 for every six month.  The chief of police and scavenger  offices areto be amalgamated, and Geo.  Waite was recommended for the position.  ���������Amotion was passed allowing, the  acting-mayor to sign''all the warrants  and accounts put through by the finance  committee.

Your public���������Monkhouse,  the old detective, sat back with the  pregnant chuckle that always riveted  attention���������your public knew about as  much of that all'air as the 'Rajah  himself; and lie went away blissfully  unconscious that Scotland Yard had  been holding its breath for a solid  month. No, I shall give no name to  the obscure restaurant, run by foreigners, where the beautiful scheme  was brought to a head. Enough  . that one evening- 1 was supposed to  be dozing over my paper at one of  the tables there. Yes; ������ was staring  might and main at the gentleman  for whose appearance 1 had waited a  week���������the man launched upon unsuspecting London by a set of fanatics who fioped to send a thrill shuddering from here right away to India.  I  had no  tangible proof yet.     All  the  same I  was  ready  to  stake my  hard-won reputation on  the  instinct  that    tingled    through    me  at first  sight of that wax-white, black-bearded face flashed on to a mirror from  the doorway opposite.     Entering, he  sat down near tlie door,     whispered  for  macaroni  and  coffee,   and   began  rolling a cigarette with thin, nervous  fingers, while���������.1 knew��������� he was mentally    photographing  every  detail  in  the room.     And���������er���������yes,  the furtive  glance    paused at myself.       Good-  splendid!       lie    was fresh from the  Continent,   beyond  a doubt;   and  I���������  well,  it had taken me just one hour  each day to   "make up"   as  the foreigner who should have been thereto  meet him, but whom we   had thoughtfully prevented from doing so.  .    The macaroni came.    He just tasted" it. shuddered, sipped at the coffee  and began smoking    hard.       No attempt at a signal.       Tho    situation  ���������was  exquisitely delicate.     We  didn't  want London to send up a roar. The  plot,   and everyone     concerned  in  it  had to  be traced     home in strictest  secrecy;  a false move now,  and    the  vile tentacle thrown out over sea. by  the  Anarchist  octopus  might  be  instantly     withdrawn.       Luckily,   the  newspaper   could   tell   no thing   about  the    intercepted     letter in cipher to  Luigi  Arboretti,  the clever scoundrel  who, handed across his own border a  year ago, had found a refuge in London;   the  ferret-eyed     correspondents  could not���������and never really did���������discover that this latest plot of all aimed at stirring up a rebellion and hatred in India by murdering,   on English  soil,   one  of  the  most  powerful  provincial  rulers���������our'   distinguished  visitor, His Highness, the Rajah Dhu  Pjaleen.  Minute'after' minute went by. I  watched him breathlessly in the mir-  . ror there: he stared as steadily back.  No life in his eyes yet; but���������what  was he up to? Twice"ihe had held his  cigarette at arm's length, stared fixedly at it, put the ligjhted end in his  mouth, and blown a iwhid" of smoke  in ���������three directions. A sign? The  letter had mentioned'none. I had  cigarettes���������but I migh'vt make a fearful blunder that way. At my wit's  end, I looked down at.'my newspaper  again. Something Mfre this stared  up at me:���������  "The Rajah Dim T>ja*Jeen reached  London late last niglnt after his visit  to .Scotland. His 1 li-jjliness was said  ��������� to be.in the best heahth and spirits,  and proceeded straigipt to his suite  at the --Cosmopolitan Hotel. It is  understood that, althiough the Rajah  has been received in conference in the  'highest quarters, his visit will remain a strictly informal one." Etc.,!  etc. j  In two seconds I snipped out the!  item with my thumb nail, held it up I  as if in a yawn, anil then rolled it j.  into a pellet. A backward flip,, and  the pellet lay near his feet. Would  he bite? For another minute I held  my breath; then���������hi:s cigarette dropped. When he pickud it up the pellet was gone. Yes; it was a big  bound my heart ga\-e at the certainty that there sat tho man selected to  set an Indian province ablaze and  put a big blot on JBritain. For a  time he never move d; then, almost  before 1 knew it, he* was seated opposite    me,    and    1 lad clutched and.  pocketed that paper with the dangerous elimination.  "Vous etes " lie breathed.  "Arboretti!" I gave him back,with  an.accent. "Keep to English here. I  have been shadowed by Naples and  Paris detectives���������dared not give you  the sign openly. ' Why so Jate?"  "Ah! 1 "was followed; 1 know it.  Tt took me the week to turn and  twist and get to���������where I -am. 1  have carried twenty of the capsules,  filled with nitro-glycerine, in the  false    crown    of this hat the whole  way You are not speaking.    Is it  for to-morrow?"  "No;     or���������say      Thursday." It  wanted a bit of saying, as his hot  breath puffed on my face. I was  bound to risk a feeler on my own account. "Why was it to be the rajah?  They could not ha.ve chosen a worse  place than England���������London. If  these ��������� people    had but an idea.they  would "  "Then let it be to-morrow?" he  caught my hand tightly. "But 1 say  yes!���������let if be-over. It might mean  madness for me; J have had the great  struggle not to drown my senses in  cognac. 1 am quite ready���������I wait  for'nothing save your plan. There is  the hotel: show me a way into it and  it is done. Por myself, I care nothing. To-morrow, yes! It, is perhaps  the last good blow we shall strike.  I, Marcschi, one man, will blow up  their Rajah���������I alone!"  "Hush���������keep calm," I whispered.  "���������You are mistaken; J shall be with  you; I am no more afraid than you.  Then���������to-morrow!" 1 had to say it,  his eyes had flamed up so dangerous"-  ly���������and, of course, all our hopes were  based ��������� upon what we might glean  from this Marcschi. - So far, we  were;all in the dark- as to the names  and number of the plotters on tliis  side. "It is just-the plan we must  consider now���������to get a way in, and  keep it." I waited, on the chance  that he might know . something'- of  the real Arboretti's scheme: but he  only hung on my words with that  mad, puzzling intentnoss. . I was  treading the edge of a. deep. pit. "It  is not'.to be Thursday, and so my  best and safest plan falls to the  ground. On that day he attends a  reception at an Embassy, and returns to the hotel in time for������������������"  Another pause. No; it seemed fairly  clear that the final arrangements had  been entrusted to, that deep Arboretti. "Well, here "is our second and  only alternative idea. Provided that  the Rajah sleeps at his hotel to-morrow night, it cannot fail. To-morrow there will be cases of game,  wine and other things carried in. at  the rear of tlie building. Marcschi,  bend your head!"������������������and I whispered  a clever notion that had been agreed  upon days before, so.designed that he'  and his confederates could be arrested quietly on the very scene of the  contemplated crime.  "Yes, yes!" He simply nodded,  and was on his feet again. "I care  not so long as I succeed. You have  all this ready? Then I meet you���������  where?"  Here was a staggerer! What could  I answer offhand. Beyond the establishment of his own identity 1 had  ferreted out absolutely nothing of  value. Where was he staying, and  with whom? A minute to think! I  got it by calling for die bills���������settled  both; and led the way outside. I  could simply risk another throw of  the bait.  "It must not fail," I whispered.  "Suppose I come back with you and  talk it over with the others?"  "The others?" he stared, vaguely.  "No, each may work for himself. I  shall spend my night preparing the  bombs, and���������and"���������with something  ;.iear a choke��������� "writing to all those  I left over there���������little Nina and the  others. I want to be alone. At  eight o'clock I shall niect you just  here, and you will have the cab  ready."  He put a hand to his forehead and  fairly walked away from me. Hurry  back to the Yard with my report���������  or follow him on the chance of learning what we wanted before daylight?  Follow him! He had struck along a  quiet street leading farther west. Off  was turning a corner. I  a second or so, took a  ���������ound���������and almost dash-  into the wax-white one  Something or  had  made him  I went.

We are seen.  To-morrow night!"  And oh I sprang in another direction. Phew! Another blunder like  that, and I might scare him into prematurely attempting what he was  here to carry out.  No,     there     was    no  real  danger!  When I left the Yard late that night  every possible strand of the web had  been drawn in, and His Highness was  as safe here as he had  ever been  at  home���������and,   ��������� perhaps,     more so.     It  now    only    remained    to arrest the  plotters  with  all  the proof possible,  j communicate     with   the   Continental  i police,   and   deal   with, the  organization in such a manner    as���������well,  as  ���������would effectually turn the eyes of the  | extreme   section   away   from   Britain  for many a year to come.  * # w #   .,  The memorable day dawned; seven  o'clock came round at last. By half-  past, still as Arboretti, 1 had reached the rendezvous and stood waiting  for Marcschi. A four-wheeler hovered close at hand. The driver was a  detective, a plain-clothes inspector  was boxed in under the seat in case  of emergency, and two men were  watching in readiness���������one to carry  the word and one to follow wherever  we went. The mine was undermined  in every direction.  Eight o'clock! There was Mares-  chi, rounding the corner. Pulling at  his eternal cigarette, he walked' firmly up, deadly calm���������almost smiling.  ' "Uood! But where is���������it?" I  whispered. "It" was always their  word.  "Close by," he said, staring round.  -'Don't think I was afraid���������I was only careful. We will step back for it,  and return here for the etib. This  way!"  That was unexpected, but it mattered nothing���������might lead to something good. We should be closely  followed in any case. Not another  word passed between us, but as we  went I managed to scribble on my  linen cull: "Have house searched moment we leave it." We were going  towards Soho, as I expected; and  barely ten minutes had elapsed when  our man stopped, looked up and  down and whispered: "Here it is!"  1 just had time to flick away the cuff  as he turned his key. Next minute  I Was following him up a dark, narrow staircase. .'���������;.���������'������������������'  How did it happen? He has pushed open some door; simultaneously  he turned back, with a husky cry:  "The police! Run���������run!" There was  no time to think; he was dashing for  the staircase, he might get away even  now. 1 just grasped the possibility  in time to grip the man by the  shoulder, and then������������������  A rush and a scuffle. I heard sonic  one say, "Got them both," and  found myself dragged bodily through  the doorway. Kicking, shouting, I  tried to keep my hold on, Mareschi  No use; in less than a minute I was  overpowered,  my arms, and  the door. A  mantel-shelf; I  ing else.  "Arboretti!" I got out. "Who  posted you here? Let go, will you!  I'm not Arboretti! I'm So-and-So,  of tho, Yard, in charge of this business.    You madmen!"  I burst away���������to start back in cold  horror, I admit. The man at the  door dashed off his helmet, dragged  away his tunic, and I saw���������no policeman, but a swarthy foreigner,  with teeth savagely bared. I reeled  back against the wall. Heavens!  was I dreaming? They were all three  foreigners, and I had been gently  walked  into  this  incredible  trap  by  the simplest  Ah yes!     The  door  half opened, and there stood our  Mareschi, a sneer on his wu-X-white  face that I could never describe.  "Out of ��������� your own mouth! I  thought it���������I knew, when you tried  to follow me. You, Arboretti���������you!  you meant to die with the Rajah���������  with me. You shall! You shall live  just long enough to know that we  have a w<iy of our own."  That was it. I'll own that the bare  shock of the thing left me as nearly  paralyzed as makes no difference. In  a breath I had given the whole thing  away, and Mareschi was gone���������in all  probability by a rear exit. I heard  no door close; my man would hang  outside in perplexed ignorance and���������  saints    alive!     it looked as if these  Two constables had  a third stood holding  candle burned on the  could make out noth-  determincd scoundrels, in their extremity, had stumbled on a plan so  subtle as to balk all the Yard's manoeuvres! More than that; did 1 man  ago to get away, 1 stood to risk becoming the laughing stock for life  among those who knew of the plot.  Thinking of that, and realizing what  might be involved; I set my teeth  and made a sudden rush for that  door, only to stumble back before  the steady barrel of a six-chambered  Colt. My own���������it had been whipped  from my pocket in the struggle. I  faced round���������two pointed knives were  between me and the window.  "You must stand there," said the  door-man, deliberately; "you are  minutes too late, .lie is well on his  way. Failure or success tonight,  you, at least, will never go as you  came. We are sure of one blow���������if  not two."  They meant it!    Hard as my brain  worked iu  those first fewT minutes I  could see no  alternative for    myself  whatever might happen outside.    Did  j my man suspect something and force  j the door down there, it' was still one  ' blow* and  a kick against  two knives  and a' revolver.  It seemed we were simply waiting  for a distant explosion and shouting  that should tell���������what it told. I  .was     feeling    faint under  the  awful  strain By    now    Mareschi    would  have reached the hotel. That candle  over there! It was -burned half  down.    If���������if it would only go out of  a sudden!    If only   The inspiration came without my  knowing it. My slouch hat lay near  my feet; in a flash 1 had picked it up  and flung it. Bash! The caudle was  knocked, no one knew where. Sudden darkness! Now for life���������dear  life!/  A jabbered curse���������a simultaneous  rush. I recollect how every hair on  my head sprang up like a red-hot wire  as I took two stealthy strides to the  right. A hand blundered out and  gripped me; I struck back convulsively, and met a bristly chin. One man  crashed down. They had no matches  ���������or feared to leave the door. One  more despprate side swoop I made,  collided with a body, staggered away  struck at the wall, and crippled my  hand���������and suddenly remembered  something just as death seemed  clutching me, by the throat. My  whistle!    I always carried one.  It was out. One deafening, piercing  signal thrilled through the house. I  made a huge bound just avoiding  their arms. I sprang from side to '.���������  side,, kicking, shouting, blowing the  whistle, until the place seemed a very ,  pandemonium. Now���������now there was  a thudding at the door below���������now  (x crash, and shouts. One minute  .more could J keep up that mad  maze, and I was safe, and had turned the trap for one into'a trap for  three.  The door���������the door; I heard it open. Another frantic rush, and I was  struggling .with the man who had  held it. The pistol went oil' once,  twice, flaring in the darkness, and  then,- with my very, last effort, I  dashed him sideways, and was out  on the landing. A glare of lanterns;  my'man, with two constables, sprang  past me. One of the scoundrels lay  unconscious, another took flight, and  the third was seized as he swung up  the revolver again. Safe! I just  waited to make sure, got my nerve,  and went oh like a man possessed.  I reached the Strand���������that I had  never thought to see again.

Five  minutes later, as it swung around  the Piccadilly bend, I caught sight of  my chief, just about to cross the  road. I shouted to the driver, and  leaned out to whisper one word.

On one of the Cunard boats a mem-  l.er of the crew (while the passengers  'were at dinner) picked up a menu,  ��������� and seeing on the top" "Table d'hote"  inquired of one of his mates the  meaning of it. Joe, taking the menu  gazed on it with a puzzled air,  scratched his head, and .said:���������  "I can't make nothing* of it. Let's  ask the bo'sun, he's a scholard, and  sure to know."  On giving the menu to the boatswain he thoughtfully stroked his  chin and said:���������  "Well, look 'ere, mates; it's liko  this 'ere.- Thorn swells down in the  saloon haves some soup, a bit of fish,  a bit of this and a bit of that: and a  bit of surnmat else, and calls it  'table dottie.'

From the trend of things in tlie strike  world, it is   not unlikely changes  will  take place, and in the interest of honest  labor, they cannot be made too soon  Every man  of ordinary human  feeling  must sympathise with the industrious  laborer,no matter of what calling,who is  willing to work steadily and   faithfully  to make the most he can out of his time  for the care of his  family and old age;  but this has no application whatever to  the numerous shysters who are only too  often placed at thej head of industrial  organizations, Bimply because they have  more brass and more gab than the most  of their fellow beings.   Shaffer,   an ex-  Methodist  preacher,  by  tiie  way, and  who   perhaps    knows   as   much   from  practical work about the business as he  does about the honorable dealings of his  fellow men, is president of the Metal  workers' union at Pittsburg, Pa., ordered a strike some weeks ago, which took  all told serno 50.000 men out of employment, not because the men were overworked, were under paid,  or were improperly cared for, but simply  because  the employers would not make certain  institutions  union; factories  and drive  out of   work   all   the   non-union   men  therein who were doing honest work and  getting fair pay.   This forced thousands  of men to do dishonorable acts,  break  contracts   they   had - 'made with   their  employers over   their own   signatures.  When it is learned that tlie employers  are getting all the non-union men they  want to take the place of the strikers,  some 24 counts are raised by the union  newspaper organ  for the  impeachment  of Shaffer.  Some months ago J. T. Wilson, secretary of the Railway Trackmen's association, an alien, came over from the States  and ordered all the O.P.R. trackmen in  Canada to strike, not because thej' were  not getting as much pay and as fair  treatment as other trackmen, but  because, as he put.it, they were not  getting a fair share of the profits the  road was making. If, of course, he  knew the road, was making va loss  through the working of the men,hewould  not have ordered them to strike follower wages. He shystered around the  country for some weeks, his ca;use  growing weaker every day, until the men  ordered him to leave Canada at once.  He did so, and the trouble was fixed up  in a few days, though it would never have  been had he remained in the country to  foment strife. If laborers are so much  afraid of aliens, as they profess to be,  why do they allow alien mouthers to  to come over here to engender trouble?  The Board of Trade at Rossiand has  found out, through the instigation of  alien agitators, the constitution of the  Miners' union itself was violated in  ordering tlie recent strike at Rossiand.  The policy of Bernard McDonald  appears to be upheld in England by the  directors, and now the Le Roi and other  properties are likely to bo put in full  operation without a settlement with the  local mines.  Through the instigation of some  mouthers here a few months ago, after  the eight-hour law was passed, a lockout was forced by which the men lost a  year's work, the business people their  business, and the country received an  irepardle setback. Had the industrious element of the union been  allowed  their way,  they  would have I  BABY     LAUGH  . It belongs to health, for a  baby, to eat and sleep, to laugh  and grow fat. ���������  , Butfatcomes first; don't ask  a scrawny baby to laugh; why;  even his smile is pitiful! Fat  comes first.  The way to be fat is the way  to be healthy. Scott's emul*  sion of cod-liver oil is the proper food, if he needs it; but onl)  a little at first.  rcj*r.:svii!aiivu men in their own bodies,  wh'.> have an interest in the country,  ail.! want to see it grow and prosper.  If they make these changes th ay will  secure the sympathy and encouragement of the entire community.  GO TO  WORK,  GENTLEMEN,'AND  DO IT.  We'll send you a little to try if you like.  SCOTT & BOWNE,   Chemists, Toronto.  accepted the .$3.25, offered by the Shoca'n  the wages they are now taking, and  made money in the interval.  The trouble with unionism, as at  present organised is, the genuine representative men of the organisations are  not in control. If they were, there  would be such a bond of sympathy  between employer and employee at  every turn,that differences would rarely  arise, and when they did they would be  speedily adjusted by the intervention of  proper feeling and common sense.        -  The history of these incidents proves  a few things conclusively. That Canadian organizations should no loDger  tolerate outside interference; but should  separate from American control and act  in their own interests solely; that they  should not allow time servers aLcl  agitators to control their organizations,  but  should   have    them   officered" by  s me waste  And strength wasted, to try to push  back the rising tide with a broom.,  It's just as great a waste of time and  a far more serious waste of strength'  to try to push back the rising tide  of disease with the " nervines," " compounds" and "nerve foods" which  simply drug the nerves into a drunken stupor. They make : you feel  good? So does whisky, while the  feeling lasts, but the reaction is dan- j  gerous and deadly. Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical Discovery is a temperance medicine. It contains no alcohol, opium, cocaine or other narcotic. It strengthens the body by  purifying the blood and increasing  the. supply of that vital fluid. It  heals diseases of the stomach and organs of. digestion and nutrition 'and  thus removes the obstacles to a perfect nourishment of the whole body.  "Six years ago my stomach and heart  troubled me so much I had to do something, 9  as the doctors could not help rue," writes  Mrs. S. A. Knnpp, of San Jone, California,  Box 392. " I went to San I'rnncifco nud had  treatment for catarrh of the .".loniucli nnd  was better for some time, then it came back.  I then used Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical  Discovery and 'Plenum:* Pellets,' These  medicines cured my stomach. I do not  have the pain ami indigestion ns I did.  It is very hard for me to  I ell you what I suffered before I commenced tiiking  your valuable medicine.  I recommend it to all  the sufferers whom I  meet."  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant  Pellets strengthen and  stimulate tlie liver.  Whilst  many   able   pens have been  busy for many months back writing on  the mining situation in   this country,  some contending from comparisons with  conditions  outside,   that  the    owners  ought to be all working, and others defending the main features of the  memorial of the Mine Owners' Association to  'to    the   provincial1 government,    and,  therefore,  justifying   inactivity,  it  all  comes down to a question of a few facts.  The principal one is, are all the conditions in this country the same as those  in the countries with   which   the  comparisons are made?   The answer is emphatically "No."    Then   where   is   the  use   of   comparing   by  piecemeal?   It  proves nothing.   Some will say theown-  ers   here   should   not  complain'of the  eight hour day, because they have it in  Australia, New Zealand and some of the  States; but in  those countries' the restriction is without  penalties,  so over  time can be worked as may be agreed  on.   This comparison then  falls  to the  ground.   Others again say the excessive  charges here for recording assessments,  crown   granting, &c, are   compensated  for in the better general .legislation' ofthe country;   but   this  better  general  legislation could be secured just as well  by   an   equitable and fair   taxation of  personal property, wild lands, improved  real estate and improvements., Others  again say we have producers of mining  machinery in Canada as well as they  have them in the States, and our owners  should have no complaint on this score.  True, but the  experience of owners .is  the Canadian machinery does not cover  all the ground, and whore it does it is  not as good, and costs more.  This forces  them to pay heavy duties either directly  or  indirectly   from  20 to' 35 per cent,  where the American owner pays none;  It is further urged we have smelters as  well as the Americans have.   Yes; but  we  have  not  enough  of them,  their  charges are higher, and when   our producers ship   they   have to   pay much  heavier railway freights than the American producers pay, and are then without the market the American producers  have at their doors.  Some other prescient observers again  learn our mines are overstocked and our  directors are overpaid. This is true in  a few instances, but many of our properties are held by close corporations  .and privat* parties who neither overstock nor over pay directors, and so on  along the whole line.  The simple facts are the mines arc  not producing as is seen on every hand;  new properties are not being opened up,  and very little new capital is coming  into the country. Now, if the miner is to  get work, if the merchant, businessman,  saloon keeper, saw mill, nowspaper.&c,  are to prosper old mines must ship, new  ones must be opened, capital must come  in. There is no uae in moralising or  philosophising on this condition or  that circumstance, concluding the owner  is to blame here and at fault there.  Our legislatures can remedy all thecorn-  plaints Ave have outlined above and that  without doing a single soul in the country in other channels of business an injustice. It is admitted on all hands if  these changes were made, the owners  would no longer have ground  for com  plaint, and that a new era of prosperity  would us certainly set in #as the sun is  sure to shine. The simple question then'  is why is it not done? As long as the  owners complain 'new capita) will not  come in, and without it prosperity need'  not be looked for. Again we ask why  do not our legislators set to work and  see that the grievances are removed instead of spending their time comparing,  philosophising and denouncing.  TDjp. Morrison,  Dentist.

The Silvertonian newspaper at Silver-  ton   says   tliere   are   /iffeoii    business  houses in that place, and it is patronized  by but six of them, Lhe remaining nine  looking for favors for- nothing.   This is  more or  less  the, experience of newspapers everywhere, and  should  not be  the cape.   Tlie feeling  very fortunately  is not nearly so bad in Sandon.   There  are some fifty business- places here, and  ��������� we do more or less trade with over 40 of  them.   Ask those in any place  who do  not patronize their local papers,  why it  is so, and they will  say  the papers are  no good.   How can they expect them to  he   better?    Generally   speaking,   the  papers are as good as  their patronage.  No one can expect  a   publisher   to put  $15 into a business when  he only-gets  $G from   those   who  ought  to   be  his  friends to do it with.   The country over  the publishers expend  on  and in their  offices all the money they get from the  public, and they certainly ought not to  be   expected   to   spend more.   Others  again sometimes see something' in their  local papers they   do   not like,   and at  once their subscription  is   cut  of!1  to  destroy the offices.    Well, it so happens  that    to    these    some     objectionable  nttrances are the very   ideas   that suit  the neighbors of  those men who   find  fault with them.    Then to be consistent  why not drive out the neighbors as well  jib the newspaper offices.   No, the truth  is  while there are "many men" there  are "many minds," and it is well that it  is so.   As a rule, however, local papers  wish their local surroundings well,  and  desire to see them improved? and while  a paper continues in  such advocacy   it  ought to   have the united support of its  surroundings, oven if there are differences in minor matter.Now,supposing every  one of our Sandon business places   had  ln's name and his business in a card in  the Review,  paying but $1.00 a month  for it,   as   the   paper  falls   into many  hands all over the  province,  in Manitoba,  Ontario,  Quebec,  the States and  England, people there would say Sandon must be quite a place,   it has two  lawyers,   two  doctors,    two   hardware  stores, seven  or eight  general stores,  &c, &c,   It will pay us  to make more  enquiries about the   place  nnd extend  our business in that direction.   This is  how a well patronised paper may he of  services to the place   and the people in  it.

It would not be a bad idea if the  city council would see that all logs and  loose timber of every description are removed from the creek as far above the  flume as possible before next spring's  freshets. There is much timber in the  creek up Cody way and above the sawmill that would make good fuel if only  pulled out, cut and dried.  We do not know whether there are  any grounds for it or not, but we have  beard some complaints against the  charges of our draymen for the transfer  of baggage when thereare several pieces.  To do justice all around our city council  should pass a by-law regulating such  charges, the same as they have in other  places. It could injure no one, and  might do some good.  It does not require much money to  do it, but the city council ought to see  that the citizens, one and all, clean up  up their back yards, many of which are  in a shameful condition. With insurance out of the question, scrupulous  cloanlines-iought to been forced in every  corner to improve the chances for.  safety. Everything in the shape of inflammable matter ought to be removed,  even by compulsion from all back  yards, vacant lots, streets, &c. An hour  ought not to be lost in the enforcement.  All tin chimneys ought also to be torn  down at once.  The -flost Complete Health Resort  On the Continent of North America.

Green tomato soy for fish and meat  is made by slicing without removing  the skins a two-gallon jar of green  tomatoes and eighteen medium sized  onions.

Cook slowly until tender,  tlien put in pint cans and seal.  Success in making croquettes depends largely on securing the right  temperature of the fat at first. This  can be determined by dropping into  the fat a small square of bread; if  it browns while the clock ticks forty-  times, it is right for ..material, that  has been previously cooked, and for  raw material the bread should brown  in one minute. Always drain croquettes. They are nicer if rubbed  with white of egg and rolled in  bread crumbs before frying.  Fruit cake is more often heavy because the fruit is not properly prepared.

Store fruit cake in a tin box or  stone jar, but do not wrap it in either cloth or paper.  Mutton can be made almost as delicate as venison, and loses largely  its abjectionable flavor if marinaded.

Dodd's Kidnoy  Pills are entirely different'.to any  other treatment for Heart Trouble;  they act on the Kidneys first, and  for that very reason are so successful.  Mr. Thomas Barter of Cape La  Hune had trouble with his heart for  years, and could find nothing to  help. him. But his' own words will  better tell the story.

Because I was reading to-day and  came across a line which said Mary  is- the sweetest name that woman  ever bore.  That is poetically expressed. I've  heard my father say it to my mother, whose namo is Wary. It is from  some  poet,  isn't it ?  I believe so.  But 1 have also heard my father  say that there was even a sweeter  name than Mary.  I think he must have been mistaken, said the lover, as he tenderly  pressed  his  sweetheart's  hand.  No, I do not think he was mistaken.  What was the other name ?  A beautiful blush suffused , the  charming maiden's cheek, the silken  lashes fell and veiled the lovely eyes,  and in a tone as soft as the whisperings of an Aeolian harp, she murmured :  Wife.

Up to the present time the art of  blowing glassware by means of compressed air has been limited to bottles and similar articles of small  si'ze, but a process is being exploited in Germany, the invention of  Paul Sievert, of Dresden, by which  bath-tubs and other large tanks can  be made, with the greatest ease.  This process of blowing such articles  originated in Pittsburg, Pcnn., just  twenty years ago, but it has remained for a foreigner to perfect'it, and  Mr. Sievert says that there is almost no limit to the size of the articles which can be made by his process. He has already made a. number  of bath-tubs, which are said to have  many advantages over those of metal and porcelain, the principal one  being the economy of the glass. The  tube is live feet six inches long, and  about two feet wide, and consists of  one piece of solid glass about two  inches and a half in thickness. This  thing* was made complete in about  live minutes. The other things  shown iare made for special manufacturing purposes, and Mr. Sievert  thinks-that he will soon be able to  supply all the tanks and vats used  in the various arts and industries  for which clay, wood, cement, and  metal are now used, ��������� notably by  brewers, distillers, i'ruit preservers,  and sugar refiners.  The method, of-manufacturing these'  articles is said to be very simple.  The glass is taken from the furnace while at red heat and in a liquid form, and placed in the mould,  which mayr be readily swung into  any desired position. Compressed  air is then admitted through a flexible tube, which connects with the  bottom of - the mould, the flow  through which can be regulated by  means of valves. As soon as the article is finished, it is carried by a  mechanical device to an annealing  chamber, where it is again'heated,  and then allowed to cool, after  which process it is ready for use.

HOW- SOME  ALLERS  LICENSED    VICTU-  ARE   SWINDLED  Incidents   Where  the   Unwary  Proprietors Are Victimized by  .Lmposrers.  Quite recently a gentleman walked  into the saloon bar of a large public-  house in West Kensington, and asked  for   the landlord.  Now it so happens that the landlord is (unfortunately for himself) a  most approachable person where a  silk hat and a frock coat are concerned. In this case a message soon'  brought.him to the counter. A mutual drink, and the stranger, whose  manners and tone were beyond reproach, produced a card.  "Old friend  of yours, ��������� isn't he? At  least, he says he is."  Landlord looks at the card.  "Bless me, yes!       Known    J'inimy  for years!    Friend of his is friend of  mine!"  Stranger's satisfaction is evident,  though not exuberant, and another  mutual libation is made to the  health of  "Jimmy."  Stranger then intimates that "Jimmy" had implied that the landlord  would oblige his friend, the stranger,  should such an obligation , ever be  needed. Landlord professes warm  desire to oblige stranger at any time  and to any extent in his power, on  "Jimmy's" recommendation. Stranger then explains that he is a commercial traveller on a large scale. He  is just come to reside in the neighborhood, and haying often at the  end of the day as much as ������150 or  ������200, he would be glad if the landlord would take charge of it for him  till  the following morning. -  "Certainly!      Certainly!     Edie!"���������  ��������� ia his  daughter���������"if this  gentleman  ever   brings   any  money  over     night  and I'm out, put it in the safe."  Another mutual drink���������effusive  thanks���������and the stranger departs.  Next evening ho brings ������150,  which is duly received and locked up  in the safe. Next morning it is withdrawn, as per agreement, the transaction being repeated some' three or  four times.  Then ������150 is deposited, the stranger mentioning on that occasion that  he proposes visiting Tatter-sail's on  the following:' morning with the object -',,'of buying a couple of horses.  "Knowing," he says, "the landlord  to be a good judge of cattle." he  asks that individual to accompany  him, and give him the benefit of his  experience and knowledge. "Agreed!"  and an appointment is made for outside Tattcrsall's.  Next 'morning'*the''pair-meet, and  proceed to the sale. Before bidding,  the stranger incidentally discovers  that he has but ������15 upon him. "Has  the landlord his eiieque-book with  him?'.' He has. "Would ho write  him a cheque for the ������150 he holds  in his safe?" "Of course he would."'  In less-than five minutes the stranger  has the other's cheque.  "Would the landlord watch the bidding for ten minutes,  while a friend  i.s    seen    across     the    way?"     "He  would."  Ten���������fifteen���������twenty     minutes���������half  , an hour!���������but no stranger.  Having some business of his own  to attend to, the landlord, still faithful to "Jimmy's".' recommendation,"  jumps into a cab for home. Arrived  there his first inquiry is whether the  stranger has been  there.  "Yes," says his daughter, "lie came  about forty minutes ago. and received back the ������150 ho deposited  with you last night."  At racing speed, Boniface makes  for his bank. Too late���������by half an  hour! The cheque has been cashed;  and the mackerel as well as the  sprat,  has been successfully landed.  Sometimes the bait is not a golden one.  The proprietor of a flourishing hotel at a certain flourishing watering  place was a widower with two  charming daughters. ..Both''the  young ladies were well educated, and  would have done credit to any social  position.  Anyway, the younger attracted the  attention of a gentleman staying in  the house, she also having no small  liking  that  way.  By-and-by the father of the girl  began to be uneasy, and,  paying his  guest a visit one morning in his  room, asked him his intentions as  towards  his  daughter.  It should be said that the guest  had been staying at the hotel, for  over-a month, and had not only  promptly settled his bills, but appeared to have plenty of ready  money. ,_  This was "the desired opportunity,  and the explanation asked for was  at once and readily given. This aristocratic ��������� admirer was. he said, a  member of a well-known North-country family. He was not only in receipt of a good present income, but  he would inherit a- considerable fortune on' the death of his mother,  Lady Soforth. He showed the unsuspecting host letters from his mother, in reply to his. Tie was his  own master, he averred, and no action of his could in any way inwali-  date his succession to the maternal  thousands.  All he asked was that no communication should be made to his friends  by his fiancee's relatives, for at least  a week; as by then his plans for making things smooth at home would be  completely developed.  , The young fellow was so frank, so  good-looking, and, above all, so perfectly like to his own description of  himself, that father, daughter, everybody believed in him, and would  have trusted him to the full extent  of their' individual pockets and good  opinions.  Tlie day after the paternal inquisition, the Hon. "Mr. Didem went up to  London, returning" in the evening to  late dinner, and bringing with him a  wonderful ring of opals and diamonds  for his sweetheart.  On the third day a letter having  come for him by the first post, he  asked to receive the proprietor. Producing out of the recently delivered  envelope a letter with an inclosed  cheque for ������250, he made request for  his host's open cheque .iii-'-'exchange  for his mother's crossed one. A momentary hesitation, and���������the ��������� exchange was made.  Next morning the gentleman again  left for London, this time without  returning.  The cheque was wrong���������the landlord's cheque, too, was wrong���������in the  sense that before; payment could be  stopped it had been cashed. - Who  the thief, was, or how he had obtained possession of a. cheque oh Lady  Soforth's' bank, was never discovered. A hue-and-cry 'was'raised, -but  nothing came Of it, for the rogue  had vanished into thin air.  The sequel was, if possible, more  strange than the thing itself.  One morning, the young lady who ^  had been the bait to "draw" the father, was missing, and' from that  day to this has never been heard of.  It is known that she fled to join the  thief,for a letter, without date, address or signature, posted in London,   told the  tale.  DOCTOR'S GOIFESSIOIS,  HE TELLS HOW HUMBUG GAVE  HIM   A   START.

I am. bound to say that a little  humbug goes a Jong way in the early  days of a medical career, said a family doctor with a large suburban  practice; and although, of course, i  cannot pretend to defend it, I found  it most useful in giving me a start.  When I began my career, nearly  thirty years ago I was not only  without the necessary money to ��������� buy  a practice, but I was already a married man.. Undeterred by this double  handicap, I took a house in what,  after careful inquiry, I. considered to  be a promising suburb, affixed a  brass plate to my door, and prepared  to  receive patients.  For three months not a single patient came my way; there were already two doctors in the field, who  divided between them all the practice there was; and, as my exchequer  was dwindling to the vanishing point  r. saw that it was quite time to form  a new plan of campaign.  The following Sunday the congregation of our fashionable church was  disturbed by the appearance of a  small boy, who rushed panting up  the aisle and spoke a few hurried  words to me. I snatched my hat,  and, with a look of great concern on  my face, hurried out of the church,  followed by the eyes of half the congregation.  The following night my neighbors  were disturbed twice by a furious  knocking on my door, and a few minutes later those who furtively raised  the blind might have seen me, rush  wildly out into the street in the direction, presumably, of a patient in  extremis. If their, vision had been  less restricted they would have seen  my pace moderate after I had turned  the corner of the street, and within  five minutes I. had smuggled myself  quietly into  the house again  BY THE BACK Er*7TRANCE.  An evening or two later I had volunteered to give a lecture on "A  Sound Mind in a. Healthy Body" to  the local debating society. The hour  of the meeting came, but no lecturer  with it. A quarter of an hour,  half an hour, passed, nnd the small  audience, which had shown exemplary patience, was beginning to  grow very restless and ;to say uncomplimentary things, when the lecturer rushed into the room, red,  panting, and perspiring, and full of  apologies for his inevitable unpunct-  uality, which I vaguely and modestly  hinted was due to "an urgent professional summons."  Before the end of the week it began  to be whispered that the "new doctor was a coming man"; that Doctors  and ��������� would    soon    find  their occupation gone if I progressed  at this rate, and so on.  The sudden calls and imperious rat-  tats on my door grew more frequent,  although, of course, I'arranged them  diplomatically, and did not overdo  the thing���������and within a fortnight I  had secured no fewer than three bona  fide patients.  At this stage, although I could ill  afford the risk. I purchased a brougham (with borrowed money), engaged a showy coachman, and put my  boy "in buttons." Within a week, I  can assure you, there was not a soul  in the place who was not familiar  with  both  brougham and  boy.  All clay long my carriage was either standing at my door/awaiting my  being  driven   at  a.  business-like     pace  in  the district.     In  may be sure they were united in singing my praises.  But the tide of fortune began to  flow in earnest when one day the big  man of the district, a- sporting baronet, met with a carriage, accident,-  and I' was summoned to the hall by  a groom on horseback who had failed  to find either of my rivals at home.  Fortunately, I created a favorablo  impression on the great man, and  was soon able to put him on his feet  again'.  Then I had the place practically all  l^o myself, and my work grew so rapidly that I was compelled to engage an assistant and could afford  at  my past  anxieties    and  to  smile  artifices.  At the end of a year's practice I  was able to move into a much more  imposing house, was free from debt,  and was making���������well, a very comfortable income, which has never  since fallen below four figures. But  really, if it had not been for my little "humbug" aft the beginning, I  am sure J should have had a very  different tale to 'tell.

The average produce of wheat to  the acre iu England is 21- bushels.  In Middlesex, owing principally to  the' ' facility of procuring manure  from London, the average is 40  bushels to the aero : and it has been  known to reach even 68 bushels to  the acre. FOr every 12 bushels of  wheat, one load, containing 36 bottles of trusses of straw, will be obtained, the weight of which is 11{-  cwt., or 1,288 pounds. The average  produce of barley to the acre is  from 24 to 32 bushels..  brisk  ovor  fact,  rest  them  coming,   or  and     very  every  road  .1 gave my coachman so little  that 1 had no less than live of  IN SIX MONTHS.  Of course the rapid growth of my  practice was the gossip of every  drawing-rooni and dinner-table; and  I believe some marvellous stories  were invented to account for it. All  that I cared to know was that my  practice really was growing in a  most remarkable way, and that every  day the need for bogus calls was  growing less.  " Amid all my work, real and imaginary, I. found time to attend a few  really poor and deserving people;  and, as I resolutely refused to receive a penny   for my services,  you J  AN INCONVENIENT BOTTLE.

It 18 expected that the Slocan Star will  shortly increase its force again.  Tlie Red Mountain wagon road will  soon be completed. It is a much needed  thoroughfare.  From Three Forks, for last month, the  ore shipments wore: Queen Bess, 186  tons; Corinth, 15.  Last year there were -1,930 tons of ore  shipped from Slocan Lake points, and  this year so far 4,S9G tons have been  sent out.  The Noonday mine afc Silverton is  goinginto liquidation. This is one of  tlie properties that was operated during  the lockout, and of which the manager  used to say he could pay the men full  wages for tlie short shift.  Mr. Tinling has finished his contract  for the long tunnel at the Canadian  group. It is in over a 1000 feet in length,  and most of the work was done this  year. Work will lie continued to finish  up some smaller contracts.  Eight feet of clean dry ore have been  encountered on the Fisher Maiden,  near Silverton, running 12G ounces in  silver. It is a good fluxing ore carrying  some rctby silver, grey copper and silica,  and will bring a good price. J.K.Clarke  is superintending.  The Rockland group of claims near  Silverton is being purchased by the  Miner-Graves syndicate. Two years  ago they took a lease on the propcrtv,  and after much development they consider it worth finishing the deal. It is  reported, when well under way, a smelter will be erected to handle the ore on  the spot.  SUPPLIES,  Jobbers and Retailers in  and  Mining Supplies  Gold Seal White Rubber Coats.

Cunning has been appointed a  oily alderman. He is. as good as any  material available, hut if he uas as  capable as the Lord Mayor of London,  he cannot prevent the inevitable smash.  Slocan has its Board of Trade in full  swing. It is an excellent institution  for any place, as it brings all business  people together for'" interchange of  opinions on ever}' subject affecting the  interests of the place.  We believe the C.P.R. strike has been  settled without any appreciable advance  to the men. The C.P.R.' pays its men  better wages than most roads, but .at  the same time no man, ought to be  asked to do trackmen's work in this  province for less than $2.00 a day, if the  company had to raise passenger and  freight rates to pay it.  Win. Whyte, of the C.P.R., who went  around the world, expressly to see what  trade Canada could develop with Russia  is not sanguine as to results. He says  the serfdom of the masses makes Russian  too poor to buy agricultural and mining  machinery, winch are mostly the goods  admitted duty free, and the duties are  so high on the goods they require and  can buy, that at the present the prospects for trade are not most assuring.  F. G. Fauquier, well known in thi-  city, wasa government agent at Revels  stoke for over a year, lias been arrested  under a charge of appropriating some  ���������iftf.OOO of government money.
