Moyie has past��� through the iftqct  prqsperqua year'of. its' history���rthe development in tho mines and tho growth  of th? tov{n,I'iavrn'gia!rnpst doubled' in  that time. \Ve finp* that duriqg .the  ���paptyoarlho St. Eugene; mine ha?  shipped over 17,000 tons of ore, of ;a  total value of over one million'dollars.  As no shipments were made until the  month'of May ��� it oan be- trutrifully  said tjiat the aboye amount is really  only the'output of eight months. The'  payroU'into the town during "the past  year ijas averaged, nearly $30,000 per  ;month, or ' $630,000" for the ' twelve  mouths. ��� It is, therefore, not' to be  wondered at ��� tnat., Moyie, ��� the , town  with a population of eight hundred, is  experiencing an unprecedented era of  good times.'

The' company has   now ' 270  men employed.  Tho Socioty Girl is situated immediately to the east and on the same  lead as the St. Eugene. The work  done amounts to about ��� 500 feet of  tunnels and two shaftu. There is a  splendid showing in all of the -workings.' Several carloads of ore 'have  been shipped' during the year, and the  mine has bceii;equipped with a large  boarding house) hunk hoiise,' ore bin,  etc., and everything is in shape for  pushing \?ork on af large scale. "Chas-  Farrell, one of the" original owners of  the-LakesShore mine, ia the owner.  The Aurora, situated on the west  side of. the lake, and accurding to the  best authority, ou the continuation of  the St. Eugene lead, gives promise of  becoming ono of the pig mihcs'of the  camp. There is a force of men driving  a tunnel to tap the lead and are close  to the'orebody, It is safe to say that  within sixty dai'a ' this property will  be shipping ore to , the smelter. The  Aurora is owned by Thomas Itader, O.  J. Johnson and Capt. I. B, Sanborn.  The Iron Mountain, situated to the  south of Moyie about three miles, and  owned by J. J.

"Ahoat the 'most'' thorough' and
popular teacher, we have ever had
here," is the opinion expressed by the
people of .Canaan, N.S., of their present 'young lady .school teacher. Miss
N'ellie'Cutten. Miss Cutten is possessed of keen intelligence and engaging
manners, and has boon peculiarly sitc-
cessful in 'her chosen profession. At
^present she looks ■ the .. picture of
health, and one observing her good
color' and buoyant .spirits, would
never,think of associating her with
Bickachs. 'It was, ' however/only' last
autumn that she was'almost'hopeless;
of continuing in her work:"on account'
of her ill-health, aud her condition
was a source of alarm to her friends.
"Yes," she Sn,id to hn -Acadian reporter,, who died upon her recently
to learn the particulars of her case,
"I suppose it is,a duty I owe to'Ilr,
Williams'. Pink'Pills that I should;
inake public the -wonders they worked for rue, but perhaps I would not
have thought/of 'it if you iuicl not
called."    , ,
"You see,'In addition' to-my'-teaching, I have been studying very hard
o%'or my '13', work,'and then I was
attacked with whooping cough which
did not leave "me for a long time, and
so I /oecama. prot ty well run down. I
was always considered the embodiment :of health at -home, but last
autumn 1 was really alarmed over
my condition/ Sometimes in the
schoolroom 'I "would i^e , seized 'with
dizziness, and often I would, faint
away. T would take vomiting turns
also, and had a feeling of nausea
and langour all Life (timc. I lost my
color and/became thin and pale, and
it seemed as if my blood had turned
to water.' ' : .
"This condition of-things''was so
different from anything which I had
previously experienced pthat 1 sought
medical advice at once. I was informed that 1 was. suffering' from
anaemia, and I at once( put'myself under medical treataneut- .But although
I tried several bottles of prescriptions, my condition seemed ao be getting worse all the time. When I
went home for my Christmas vacation. 1 was- "almost iii despair. It
was while I was at home, however,,
that my friends .advised me -to use,
Dr. Williams' Fink Pills. Acting upon their "advise I took up .their use.".
The first box-.m.ide Its effect felt, but
T used four, or five, ,aad -thenvthe care'
was "complete. " Ever' since then my
health has been excellent and I have
felt my real old time, self, and am
able lo attend to iny duties,-"''which
arq by no mean's light.' without the
fatigue "and langour that made ■ rhe
work irksome. You may depend upon it I. will always .-have a! friendly
word to sav for Dr. Williams' Pink

When Mrs, Davenport was  T>ery young-, Mr. Davenport had care-  l f ul ly accompanied her to her carriage,  had sent her maid to take caxe ol her,  and had himself sat up to. receive her  when she returned:.   But as she grew  older, this sensitive care relaxed.   He  found  that she was quite content to  g-o alono, aaid he allowed her to do so,  with the family coachman on the box.  She im her turn wata determined that  he should not be .deprived of his naturail  rest, but should allow some satellite to  sit 'up and watch for her as she came  home.  There had been talk of a nlgfhtkey,  but Mrs. Davenport thought that was  too masculine, and she also had a suspicion that sh�� should never leaim how  to use it. So Mrs. Davenport, strong in  the confidence of heo- husband's love,  serene of conscience, and enjoying the  devotion of tu loo-go family of servants  who loved her, went offto Mrs. Appleby's hall, on the evening of November  12, looking lovely.  The ball was large and fine, and Mrs.  Davenport enjoyed it. She is a popular woman, and both men. and women  like her.

Now ha seeined to be sunk in  the deepest oblivion. But then, it Orlando slept, some one ehle had'general-,  ly waked, and either roused him Or let  her in individually. Mrs. Davenpor"t  bbuddered: A night on1 her own front  stops!  She kept on ringing desperately, and'  po\rnded the door with & delicate fist.  Presently a policeman came' along, and  to him'she appealed. ��� )  "Oh! got a key?" said he. "Let me  help you unlock the door." .'  "But I have; not'a key!" said, the  miserable woman.  "I never had a key!"  "Dad, bad," said the guardian of the  public peace. "I never knew thesn to  wakip up. However, I will rap for  you." .So he pounded the blinds with  his club, and made a terrible hoiso.  - Two or three beads looked out of the  opposite windows. Ono invalid at 41  raised a window and begged piteouoly  that her rest might not be thus ruthlessly iruined. -,;.-'-   ' ������ ��� ,*���  ���"Lady locked out!" Bang the policeman. '      ���  "Well, is that any reason why you  should try to wake the dead?" said the  irate clergyman opposite.  - The policeman walked  ou,  leaving  Mir. Davenport in despair.  She looked up at the moon, at Jupitox  ���and other illustrious denizens of the  pky, and found them,cold and unsyrnpa-  i hetic. She began to think of her sins,  and feared that nhc had not been sufJl-  fitiiitly kind to homeless outcasts. Even  thf. cats, who were tho ouly people  abroad in her quiet street, came in for  her sympathy,  "They have a hard time, poor things,"  paid she; "always locked out!"  It wasu cat, however, whogarve her an  idea- Evidently a predatory Arab of a  cat, who- thought he owned her froiist  steps, for, after stealthily creeping up  and finding her in possession, he leaped  on to a neighboring balcony.  She looked after him. - ;.  "Dr. Montgomery's and a speaking  tube!" she said.

Mr. Davenport  heard a distant thunder in his dreams,  turned over, with his deaf ear up, and  si opt again.  After a half hour's fruitless knocking, Mrs. Davenport consented to allow  the sleepy doctor to retire to his well-  earned repose, whilst she declared that  she would rest as well as she could in on  easy-chair down in his consulting room,  At length Mr. DaveBport,    like   all  heavy sleepers, woke up suddenly and  entirely.' He did not know why, but it  seemed to him. tbat.be hod hodj a disturbed night.   As he lay trying to collect his faculties, lie heard the clock  strike four.  "How quiet Coralie is!" said Mr. Davenport; "tired after her .ball, I sup*  pose."  Mr. Davenport listened to hear,  throug-h the opened door and" curtained  recess, tho quiot breathing1, of his wife  in tho next room.  She was strangely slilh and Mr. Davenport" arose softly and crept in to see  what could bo tho matter.  "neavonsr' said he, "nobody in bed!  Cbralio not at home afc four o'clock I"  Mr. Davenport ��� paused & moment.  Could the horseB have run away ? Could  the coachman have been drunk? That  had happened before. ' Could his poor  wife, have been thrown, dragged���no,  tlie idea was too horrible. Could she  have been locked out?  Mr. Davenport felt tho cold pCTEpira-  tion Btartxm his brow.   He rang every  bell in tho hoiise.   Ho proceeded    po  ' dress hiinseb!.   He danced in his agony  and agitation.  Tthen, as his sleepy serrants began' to  appear, and one after tho other began to  disclaim any knowledge of thedr mistress, he^descended to��the front door.  There lay Mrs. "Davenport's fan, hand-  kef chief and gloves.' Then "Mr. Davenport tore his hair. She had been there,  'to her own home; she had failed to gairi  adimitta,nce; she had either been ruthlessly carried off, or she had committed  suicide.' Mr. Daveaport lost his head.  '".. "She may have gone to her sister's,  'br to some 'hotel," suggested her maid.  -, "Whatj'at three in.the morning, you  wretched sleepj- h��ad!'.' said"Mr. Daveh-  poftt wildly." To discharge Orlando, to  g6 tocthe policef.to rouse the world,  theee were Mr, Davenport's first ideas.  He rang- up every signal officer in  town. The whole machinery of the public was set to work to find the missing  lady. , ,     ,  Mr. Davenport went after his coachman. The man, though iuily testifying  to,the fact that he had been very drunk,0  could swear that he had left the lady,  at her own door at half-past .two in  the mornings  In the meantime Mrs. Davenport slept  sweetly ih tho doctor's onnoh&ir until  the" housemaid, coming1 in, uttered a  loud shriek and called "robbers 1" To  pacify her, to rouse herself, to step  calmly out of the doctor's front door  and into her own house was the work  of a moment.  Mrs. Davenpof t found all of her people afc home and thoroughly awake,  but where was Mr. Davenport?  He had left no tidings of himself. He  was wildly searching, for her. -Knowing his temperament, Mrs. Davenport  felt sure that he would not return until he had dragged the East river. .She  waa at home all right, and proceeded,  like a calm woman, to get off. her ball  dress, and satirL shoes, and silken hose,  and to put on dressixigJ-gowu and lamb's  wool, and to take a clip of tea, to get  warm, and then to reflect upon what  should be done with Mr, Davenport's  case. '  "It will be all in the papers," said  her prescient soul, "this evening, at  farthest!"  " I will telegraph, everywhere," said  she, ringing for a messenger boy.  "Hullo!" said a man at the signal station, "this is queer! Hero is a man trying to find his wife, and here comes a  woman who is trying to find her husband; arid they ore both named Davenport!"  "I dare &ay���nothing ���to���each other  ���common name���coincidence," said  the telegraph operator, who had  learned to talk in jerkfl.  "Let me see the number," said the  signal man. "Thirty-nine. Yes, it ia  the same queer case!"  "Wonder what it all meansl"  It was late in the day before a haggard man was found standing on the  brink of the East river bugging a fan,  a pair, of gloves aaid' a handkerchief.  Mr. Davenport had evidently 'token  these for purposes of identification.  When ho was finally rescued and  taken, home, after the usual expressions of mingled affection and disgust,  ringer, .joy, reproach and great content-  inent, which'all'married pairs will remember and .furnish for' themselves,  Mrs. Davenport remarked plaintively:.
