"The rumor that Mr. Cronin was to
resign aa manager of the St. Eugene-
company, and that I was l to take his
place is without foundation," said J.C.
Drewry upon bis return from .Toronto

a move was never even thought of by
tho directors, and I may tell you that
in Mr. Cronin we consider we have the
best mine manager that ever" operated,
in British Columbia, and we have no
desire or intention of making any
claahge." "    .„

gives piompt relief." For sale by tlio

As he spoke he drew his chair    to

Sho laughed, but as she cleared thc.
things away her eyes went to him
where he sat sinokinc: on.io.yably, and
there was a strangely happy glance
in   them.
.    There was silence for a  time;    both .
were  thinking of the  de.ul;  but Man-
,   nering   would   not   u-ft-r     to     them—
would  not say a  woid to voice their
sense  or solitude. '
"To-morrow 1 intend-exploring the
island as far as' J can." he said with
an assumed casualno.ss "I shall be
away all day.  You  won't   mind?"
'"No," she said. "Why should I?
There is no one here but ourselves."
It was out—had slipped out at last
—and she went pale, (hen red; but
she turned away swiitlv, and he did
not notice her  embarrassment.
"I thought you might  Ket  lonely,"
he said, simply.  "I jmve not been so
far away before. Perhaps,   I   ought to

He had been communing with himself as much as talking to her; and
as he suddenly realised that he was
talking aloud, he glanced at h<*r penitently. But them was no sign of
grief or pain on the beautiful face,
and she said,  quite cnlmlv;
"Thero is nothing for  it     but
"Yes," he sighed.
She moved about in the quiet,

them!—possess naturally, then, presently, she looked round as if everything were done, and  said,  quietly:'

"No, thank you!" he. replied , as
quietly. He rose arid opened the floor
for her, as if they were parting for
the night in a house in lUnyfair, and';
drawing her cloak round "her, she
passed  hini. ...
"Good night," she said, and

He waited by the open tloor until
he had seen her enter the hut then
he closed the door and lav down by
the hre. He could not sleep that
night'in the hut he and Fleming had
occupied; it wUs loo full of memories of his fellow-castaway and friend
When- he rose next morning and
went to the door he saw Nina running toward the men's hut. She
stopped  short at sight of    him    and
after    a
scmed    to   hesitate
pause,  she came on.
She was panting a little and tho
color' was coming'and going on her
face, fiesh as the morning itself and
as   beam inil.       ' r|
"You ga\e me a fright!" she said,
as if explaining.' "I went to the hut

"I slept here," he said. "Why,
where did you think'I had gono?"
She dropped her eyes. "I didn't
know. 1 thought you might be ill,"
she said, rather coldly. "Breakfast
is ready.  I'll bring  it."
He had his morning swim
sunlit bay, and returned to
bienkfast laid. Uut she did
down  with him.
'1   have  had  mine,"  she  said,
she gave him some really well-cooked
fish  and   tlie  remains   of    tho   'duck.'
"'J here  is  some  lunch   toJ take    with
you.   Dinner  at   seven,   I  suppose?,','"
'Yes; I'll be back, by then. You always remember to wind up your
wateli?  That's right.", '     ,
"1 shall want some-more birds ,,to-

"I!II get  them before I  go," he, responded.  "Is there  anything else?"    '
"No,   thanks. I'll   leave you  now. I
am  very  busy turning  out my< hilt."
After  ho  had     finished   his     breakfast—it  was  not so  pleasant  a  meal
as  that of last' night;  he missed'her
—he took his gun and  went down, to
the piece of marsh   where  he  usually
'found  the  ducks.       It   went   to    his
heart  to. shoot  them,   for, .being unacquainted with the tender mercies of
men,     they     were     friendly  and   unafraid,   and,'   being  a sportsman,   .he
had   to  frighten  them on  to  tho wind
before he. fired.
■He got a  couple of brace and went
up  to  her hut  with  them.,    It    was
the-'first time he had  approached her'

The" journal was continued to the
day of Fleming's death,, and his
anxiety on her account, his plan of,
a marriage with ilannerihg, even the
reasons for it, wero set down.   ,
"J  had hard work to induce him to
take  tho  course I myself,pressed    on
him,"  Nina  read;   "and oven  after he
had   agreed  to   the  marriage,     and   I>

was filled with bitterness,. .-.Jt' tor-
, . i tured her pride .to read, in -black-
dull- »nfI white, Manncnng's' objection to,

But  she  put   the. book .at  thc  bottom   of  tho  box  in     which   she    had
placed   Fleming's  things,  and sot    to
work ■- vigorously.      Thero  were  very
few articles  belonging  to  Mannering.
Ho  who  had    thought    of    so  many
necessary   things     for   the   rest    had,
apparently, ignored his own  comfoi t.
There were a few spare clothes which

surely it was her duty to  "tidy

was  the  least'she  could do  l'oiy
who dnl.so much  for her. "/
Sho    did      away     with     Fleming's
"bed,"   and  altered   tho  arrangement
of the rough furniture so  as  to gi\c
the room  as  different  an  aspect    as
possible, and she completed her work-
by  putting on  the  tab'le a  bunch   of
gloriously-colored       floweis      in     an
empty bottle.    While sho was making
up   the     posy  her    eyes  caught    the

The country "stopping place" is a

But it is time for the "stopping place

■" '"-Blood-:; ' '
Bad .backs—aching backs—come
from bad kidneys. Bad kidneys .come
from bad blood. Bad blood clogs the
kidneys with poisonous impurities
that breed deadly diseases-'~ And-the
first sign of that fatal trouble is, a
dull,   dragging   pain 'in   the   back.
Neglect it and you will soon have
the coated tongue,   the   pasty   skin,
thc    peevish    temper,    the    swollen
ankle's,   the   dark-rimmed,   eyes,   and
all the other signs of   deadly   kidney
disease.    Plasters and liniments ' can
never cure    you.    Kidney    pills    and
backache  pills  only  touch  the symptoms—they do not pure.    You    must
get   right    down    to    the    root   and
cause   of    the trouble in the blood—'
and no medicine in the world can do
this so surely as Dr. "Williams' Pink
Pills,   because   they   actually   make
now   blood.   This   strong,   rich   now
blood    sweeps    the    kidneys    clean,
drives out tho poisonous ncids,    and
heals  tlio  deadly* inflammation.  That
is the only way   to   rid   yourself   of
your backache and have strong, sound
kidneys.    Mrs. Paul St.    Ongo,'    wife
of   n   well   known contractor   at St.
Alovis    dos  ,Monts,    Quo., says:— "I
suffered   for   upwards   of   six   years
from    kidney , trouble.    I    had    dull,
aching pains across-the loins, and  at
times could hardly go about. ■ L  lost
flesh, had dark rims below my   oyes.
and grew more wretched    every day-
I was treated by    different    doctors,
but with no apparent result"    I    dis-
paired   of   regaining   my, health, and
was becoming a burden  to my family.    I was In a deplorable condition
when ono of my friends advised    mc
to try Dr.    Williams'    Pink    pills.    I
began, taking them, and    aftor    using,
throe of four boxes,   I   began   fo feel
bettor.    T    continued    the   treatment
for nearly three months, when    every
symptom of the trouble had vanished
and I was again    a   woll   woman.    I
feel justified in saying I believe   Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills saved my life."
New    blood — strong,    pure,    rich

Duke   of  Wellington   came     into    the  world.    The youngest of old Lord Leicester's  eighteen' children    was    born  eleven years ago, -when his father was  71, and at th�� time of. the little fellow's  birth,  no  less  than  141   years   divided  him   from  the  birth  of   his     paternal  grandfather, Thomas William Coke, the  first 'of the Holkham earls of Leicester  of the present creation.  Lord Leicester's eldest son and heir,  who now will succeed to the earldom  and to the possession of the famous  Holkham Hall .estate, has been known  until now aa Viscount Coke,' and'as an  officer of tho Scots Guards has seen a ���  good deal ot active service in Egypt,  In tho Soudan, r and in .South Africa-  He is married to a charming Irish woman," Alice White, daughter of Lord  Annaly,, and has three grown up sons  and a cbuplo of'daughters."

Chief Justice Coke; an illuminated man-1  uscript ,of the "Dlvina Commedla" ef  the fourteenth csntury, which belonged,  to Dante himself; a Cicero of' the ninth'  century from the abbey "of Cluny, which  was used by Abelard; the original manuscript of Leonardo da Vinci's book on  hydraulics,'written in a delicate'hand,  "alia monclna," .that is backward, so  that it can only be read by holding It  to a mirror; and a manuscript Llvy  presented by Cosmo dl JMedici to Alfonso of ��� Naples,. the leaves of which  are, reported to be impregnated with a  subtle and deadly poison.

Perhaps the town  will have both before the end of 1906.  ' "Sunny Alberta" went out of .business last week and the easterners had  the opportunity of saying how much  }t reminded them of "down homo."  Again we call, attention to the fact  that there' is' not a vacant'house in  Movie and, that at least' 20 bouses  would be occupied as fast, as they  'could-be built. What" safer* or -better  investment could a' man with capital  ask for?  . ^     _������ .�� .  i  A prominent merchant in Moyie  this week," Bald: "Cash .sales haye  been better during thc past month  than for any 'previous month during  my experience here."

One ,of these ap-  'pbintments'muHt .naturally go to the  Kootenays,  and  the - name   of IT.  C.  . Drewry is prominently mentioned for  the ' position. Mr. Drewry certainly  possesses tho necessary  qualifications.  . He ^is, a thoroughly representative  Western mining man and has played  * an important part in the development  of the Kootenays.  ��� ' ���' ����-���������  Geo. E. Adams, former clubman and  ������good fellow" of Seattle, but now a  self confessed embezzler of a fortune  in gold from tho United States assay  office, will plead guilty to every indictment brought agaiust^hiui. Anxious to begin sorving his timo as soou  as possible, and knowing that no defense ho can make will save" him, the  prisoner will throw himself   upon (the  mercy of the court when it comes  time and atk for sentence. Not even  counsel will be retained by Adams.  Believing his case a hopeless one, he  will take hie medicine as well as he  can and say nothing.  Grip Quickly Knocked Out.  "Some weeks ��go duriug the severe  wiuter weather both my wife and, myself contracted severe colds which  -pcedily developed into Ibe worst kind  of la grippe with all its miserable  >yiiiptomsl" stiys Mr. J. S. Egleaton of  Mapljs Landing, Jowa. "Knees and  joints aching, nuibcles sore, bend  stopped up, eyes and nose running,  with alternate spills of chills ,and  fever. We began using Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy, aiding the same 'with  a'dose'of Chamberlain's Stomach and  Liver Tablets, and by its liberal use  soon completely knocked out the  grip." These tablets promote a heal-  tliy of the bowels,' liver and' kidneys  which is beneficial wiieii the system  id congealed by a bold or attack of the  grip.
