Gigcrs.- k  :ts "lit^auty's home"   have  been   sung  by the poets aiid   traubadours  aud  in  after agcts there will   be   poets  galore  to sing the praises and the beauties of  Moyie lakes.   It is only 10 miles from  the end of the upper to the end of (lie  lower lake ;' but while being wafted over  these waters yt>u gaze on scenes of enchantment that bailie description   and  till the mind with wonder and delight.  It.-, shores are  heaving,   rolling,   gloii-  ous   mountains, whereon   are  still   to  lie 'seen   the   grand   primeval  forests  that cover every slope  and  crest   and  summit.    Midway, or at the   narrows,  the mountains to the ua-Jt and west of  ihe lakes come almost close   together,  and    here   the   shadows   of. frowning  niou".tain's are .reflected ..in tho   dark;  deep waters..  To the 'south" and   cast  of tho narrows is a strip of  low, land,  loss than 200 acres in  extent, sloping  gently  from ��� the   mountains   to  tlio  lake where it is broadest.    This is (he  site of the infant city of Moyie. There  is no lovlief^spot   on   the   continent,  and   the   Canadian    Pacific' railway  should build one of their lovely tourist  hotels at this spot.    Until a few  years  ago   none   but' the    Indian   or    the  hunter after  game or   gold   knew'.''of  Movie's lovely, lakes.    They   were  beyond the thought or ken of   tlie   busy  world.    JJiit their lovliness   and   isolation aie gone forever.

Attention is called to the large ad  of Beid, Campbell & Co. on the front  pago of the Leader this week. This  enterprising firm has built up an  enormous trade since it started, into  business in Moyie some three,^.months  ago, and its" members thoroughly uu-  derstaud'tho advantages of liberal and  judicious advertising.

IE arrangements, can' b'e  rttdde H sliort stop   will   be   made  at  A lioquet Tor Can.a<li:ins.  ��� The Nelson Tribune of the' 23rd, in  commenting editorially upon tlie  starting up of the Lake Shore air compressor plant at this place last week,  says ���  '.'There Is a good deal of meat' in an  article from the Moyie Leadek published elsewhere in today's .Tribune.  If, shows, that Canadians are as enterprising as are their neighbors to the  south and just as practical. A few  weeks ago a Toronto syndicate purchased the Lake Shore mine at Moyie,  in East,Kootenay/and today have -12  men engaged in mining, with approved machinery,, The machinery  was made in Canada and ,the miners  who are using' the machinery were  drawn from .a Canadian mining town  that will be to British Columbia what  Virgin'ia, Nevada, and Butte, Montana,  and Leadvillc, Colorado, are to the  mining states and territories of the  United States. This is something  that. Canadians should be proud of,  for it goes to show that Canadians are  both progressive and self reliant."  Shift  Hossos Wanted.  Sandon Paystrcak : There have  been many unique subterfuges resorted to by, members of ' the Mine  Owners' Association to evade, without  breaking, 'the resolution to pay only  $3 a day for miners. But a representative of an easteren company "ivhicu  employs a small force on a property  not far from Sandon has easily outclassed all others. A few ��� days ago  the foreman got word to put on ten  men at once, but as he could not pay  miners $3.50 a day, and they would  not work for less, the foreman was instructed to employ only shift bosses.  TUo^ortli Star Brauck.  Work is going ahead on the North  Star branch, and outfits and supplies  are being taken in as rapidly as possible. Considerable difficulty is being experienced in securing enough  men, as the demand for labor throughout Canada has largely increased.  Most of the camps have been built  and the work of grading is being  pushed forward. The contractors are  anxious to take advantage of the good  weather, ./and, if possible to 'get  through before the heavy weather of  late fall.--Cranbrook Herald. ���'���','���'  rurcliaseti'Lots for a.

Who Is tbe TurlcT  The word Turk was for several centuries  taken in a religious sonso as synonymous  with Mohammedan. Thus in Bosnia,  where in tho fifteenth century many Slavs  wore converted to Mohammedanism, their  descendants are still known as Turks,  especially where they nso tho lurkish  speech in their religion. Obviously in  this case no Turkish blood need flow in  their veins.. It is tho religion of Islam,  noting in this way, which has served to  keep the Turks as distinct from tho blavs  unci Greeks as tliey aro today.  Freeman has drawn an instructive comparison in this connection between^ the  fate of tho Bulgars, who aro merely hlav-  onized Finns, and the Turks, who have  steadily resisted all attempts at assimilation. Tho first came, ho says, as mere  heathen savages (who) could be Christianized, Kuropcaulxod, assimilated, because  no antipathy save that of race and speech  had to bo overcome. The Turks, in contradistinction, came "burdened with the  half truth of Islam, with tho half civilization of the cast." By the aid of these,  especially the former, tho Turk has been  enabled to maintain an independent exist-  i'enco as "an unnatural excrescence on  j this corner of  Europe���Popular  Scionco  I Monthly.

" I went over to see Alice this morning and learned' that ifo,.one had seen  'him  since  the  funeral."  "Too late ! Too late after all my  trouble !" moaned the detective.

These were necessarily few. a-s the place was very  small. The only articles of furniture  were a table and a chair, unless account  be taken of a small closet nailed  asalnst the wall, iu which was a stock,-,  of provisiois. He also found a suit  "of clothes. Mr. Barnes nondercd over  this for a few minutes, and then the  kit a occurred to him that it was to  bring these, the gurments which Lewis  had'worn on the night'of the crime,  and for which. It .will be remember.-d,  Bun-own had searched In vain, that the  man hud entered the secret room on the  night when Burrows was disturbed by  his movements.  Jt will also be recalled  to mind that  the   younger     detective   had   a   theory  ivhlch would in a measure be substantiated   if  these  were   found   tn ' be  per-  foiated by a bullet, as that would tend  to   shew   that 'the   deceased   had   been  shot    that he  had  then  undressed  and  retired   to   his     bed.     to   be   afterward  awake).ed and killed by a second shot.  t.Miv    names    examined    thci-o    articles  with  interest.

Next   he  turned over the papers with  v. lib  i  the  table  was  littered, and  soon  an ejaculation  of surprise and  pleas-ure  attested   the  fact   that  he had. made an .important     discovery.

To begin with, tlio Koniitu empire undoubtedly readied its highest,level of commercial and military prosperity during  tho first *)(i(J years or'so >of tho Christian  tra, ami yet tho majority of it-- rulers during this period displayed very littlu ad-  l:iinj*-ti';iti\e ability, and many of them  were not only weak, but absolutely vicious,  ln thin c.'iie, Jiowevtr, it may bo taken that  Uie acciiuniiatcd energy which had been  growing up for centuries fuinid its last' expression during tho rule of the later cm-'  perors aud that Romu developed rather in  fipiie of tlieni than because ot tb.em.  We have another striking example in  Russia under Ivan ihu Terrible, who wad  undoubt'idly the nio.it unmitigated stivago  that over occupied a European throne.  Vet under him Russia developed in every  way as sho had never, developed before. In  fact, it is not too much to say, that Ivan  tho Terrlhlo made possiblo tho work of  lJeter the Great.  The last century of tho French monarchy saw its throno occupied by men of  small iiliility and generally considerable  vices, whoso alleged greatness��� an, for in-  sra'ueo, Ixiuis XIV���was duo to their ministers and not to themselves. Yet during  "this period Franco undoubtedly became  tho mOM. powerful of tho continental nations.  In English history wo have a striking  example in the reign of tho infamous  Charles II, the greatest scoundrel who  ever sat on the English throne. In his  reign the value of tho mercantile marine  'doubled, tho excise revenue nearly trebled  and, perhaps most 'cKitpient proof of all,  laud round tho great cities more than  trebled in value. .So, too, with tho ilrst  four Goorgiis. They were all weak and  "most vicious, nnd yet it was during tho  period covered by their,reigns the British  nation took its Jliial form and laid tlio  foundation of all its subsoqucnt triumphs  ���Cincinnati Enquirer.

G1LHULA.  a  Some twelve yean  ago Mrs. Elizabeth  Gilhula, wife of the  postmaster of Buxton, Ont., was taken  ill with an obscure  stomach trouble  which her physicians pronounced  cancer of the stomach and informed  her that her lease, of  life would be short.  On the advice of  friends she commenced taking Burdock  Blood Bitters. The results that followed  were little short of marvellous. Her  strength and vigor returned and in a short  time she was completely cured. v Mrs.  Gilhula is to-day in the full enjoyment oi  good health, and'in all these years there has  net been the slightest return of the trouble.  Here is the letter Mrs. Gilhula -wrote at  the time of her cure :  " About four years ago I was taken sick  with stomach trouble and consulted several  of the leading, physicians here, all of whom  pronounced tlie disease to be cancer of the  stomach of an incurable nature, and told  me that it was hardly to be expected that  I could live long. Afterward the i wo doctors  who were attending me gave me up to die.  " By the advice of some of my irionds,  who knew of theyirtues of Burdock Blood  Bitters, I was induced tu try it, and I am  now happy to say that after using part of  the fir��t bottle I felt so much better I was  able to get tip." I am thankful to Mate that  I am completely cured of the disease by the  use of B.B.B., although it had baffled the  doctors for a long time. I am firmly convinced that Burdock Blood Bitters saved  tny life."  Here is the letter received from her a short  time ago :  .
