Ottawa, January 2S.���In view of the  extraordinary rapid growth of the Can  adia'n northwest in the recent vears  chmiinating in tbe harvest of 1001  which yielded over 00,000,000 busbch  f-tr export, the puhiic will be quite  piepared to learn that ti'.e president of  the Canadian "Pacific railway has  asked the Dommioii' government to  approve of a resolution authorizing  the board of directors, with the sine-  tion of the shareholders to ' increase,  the capital stock of that' company, tn  the extent uf $20,000,000 fur the purpose of enabling it, to build new  loomotives and cars, lay heavier lails,  arrange in due course <ior the double  tracking of certain' sec.lions and  provide such other_ i'mprcrvements as  may be fonucl necessary to cope wij.h  tb.e lurge increase of traffic which .has  already taken .plane, as well as with  the still greater increase confidently  looked for in the immediate future.  The amounts applied to each of these  departments are as follows :   ' -,  For new lolling stock, .$9,000,000.  Double-tracking, $6,000,000. .  .. 'New plants for construction'  of  rolling stock, chiefly at Montreal, $1,500,���  000.    , ' /"��� '       '     '  New elevators, improvement of  terminals, $3,000,000.  Miscellaneous improvements, $500,-  000. "  Total, $20,000,000. , ',  The government on its part has  been quite frilling to approve of tbe  issue of the stock. It is clear to the  ministers, as , to every one with a  knowledge'of the Northwest, that the  constantly growing busiues of the  Canadian Pacific requires an increased  outlay   of capita]   account,  otherwise  the interests of all  concerned,  of   the  c .  farmers and merchants, no less than  of the company itself, must suffer  from congestion o'f traffic and from'  the impossibility of meeting the requirements',of thc muUitude\of new  settlot-3.going in every year chiefly  from the western States.  The case ag&int the Rossland Miners  Union by the Le Roi mining company  has been dropped.  'A.B.Gray, traveling ��� salesman for  ���i. P. Rithet & Co., died in Nelson  this week of heart failure.  . Rev. H. Irwin, belter known in the  Kootenays as "Father Pat," died in  Montreal a few days ago of cancer.

All the hockey enthusiasm seems to  have departed from Rossland hockey  oluband thin winter thoy have ' nob  ventured beyond Trail for a game.      os  , J.- Rodrick Robertson of Nelson,,  general manager ot the Lpndon &���  B. C. Goldfields company, was ac--  ciden(allv'killed in tho Murray Hill--'  ootid, New York; this week by an explosion of dynamite in the guew rapier  transit tunnel now building. The  fune al took place in New York.  For the first  time   in   a   number  of  years   the   lake   opposite   Nelson    is*  frozen solid enough   to   permit   crossing it on foot. .   During th>i   winter   of  1S99 thete   was   a   severe   cold , snap-  illliough the cold wis not so great   at-  thai being experienced aTpresent.    At'  that ti in "2    tho   barges   carrying , cars-  were brought   to 'Nelson   for   lr,i|.-[e"f  arid thc   ice   breakers   were   used   nV  keeping the channel clear.     The 'constant passing,, of   the   steamers   andf,  , barges prevented communication witlr*  the opposite  shore.    This  time,  ho\v-  i-'-'vei;, as the steamers are   not  brought'-,  to the city,the ice has  had   a chance'  to freeze solidiy.

We have, however, in  Quinine Wine, when obtainable in a sound,  unadulterated state, a remedy for many and  grievous ills.   By its gradual and judicious  use the frailest systems are led into convalescence and strength by the influence which  Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives.  It relieves the drooping spirits of those with  whom a chronic state of morbid despondency and lack of interest in life is a disease,  and, by tranquilizing the nerves, disposes to  sound and' refreshing sleep"���imparts vigor  to the action of   tho blood, which, being  stimulated, courses  throughout  the  veins,  strengthening the healthy animal functions  of the system, thereby making  activity a  necessary result, strengthening the frame,  and giving life to tho digestive organs, which  naturally demand increased substance^���result, improved appetite.

Mat crmvled from under'  his curtain and approached quite netaa:'  to whex*e I lay; then squatting on his  haunches, h�� said, solemnly, in hia native tongue; > '  "I haye^ heard that question before,  Tuan  (Master), arad once I found the.,  answer." ' "  ���'''Well, Matt, tell me. What's-the good  of them, then?" '<  "It's a long story, but 1 will tell Tuan  if he Jikes to hear."  "Tell oa.   I'm all attention."  Apd this ia the tale that he told me!  I had often seen tho heroine "of it (hia  wife) passing to and fro across the back  premises attached to iny residence. She  was a pretty young Malay woman,  aged about 20 years, with a particularly bright and pleasing manner.  "Tuan knows my wife, Katijah; she  was a widow when I married her. When  we were quite small we lived in the  same village near Malacca, and-' wp  played together, and I was very fond of  her. Then we grew up, and I went to  be a servant to a European; and her  father married her when she was 14 to  a rich man, who was a cattle dealer and  had plenty of money. He was old, perhaps 40 years'of age. 'Tijah. could not  care for him. He took her away to a  place on the coast, where he lived with  his brother and sister-in-law, and I did  not see her again for many days and  weeks. Her husband, Sleiman, used to  go away very often to Singapore on  business, and every now and then-came  back home to 'Tijah, bringing the results of his sales with him.  "At last one day, when he, had been  absent  or "about three weeks,   'Tijah  knew he would soon come again.   Her  heart was sad, for she always dreaded  his coming, as she did not love him. He  was old  and ugly, vp.ry ugly.   He had  only one tooth which hung down over  hia under lip like a tusk, 'and which  gave    him    a    repulsive    appearance.  "Tijah    hated    him,     Well,   she   was  sitting   idly on  the seashore,' behind  some   rocks,    looking    over   the   sea  and wishing she oauld get into thekoleh  (native boat)  which lay moored close  by, and row across the water to her old j  home where she had been so happy.  "Suddenly she heard steps, and became aware of voices' conversing in an  undertone on thc other side of the rocks,  which, projecting seaward, concealed  her from view, nnd she recognized that  the persons talking were her brother-  in-law, Tong and his wife, She heard  that the two were plotting away Blei-  man's life. Tong said that he had news  that his brother would came to-morrow,  and that he would have about.$200 with  him. They would IdlL him, and conceal his body, but how to accomplish it  without letting 'Tijah know? At the  mention of her name, she betrayed her  presence by a low cry, In a second the  two were upon her asldng her whai she  did there,, and whether she had heard  .what'-they had said. Terrified of the  wretches, she gasped out that she was  sleeping and their voices startled her,  but that she knew nothing of what they  had been sayiDg. Tong-grasped her  by the1 Bhoulders and told her if she  was speaking the truth, it was well for  her; but if not, she had better keep her  mouth shut, or he would b'lajar (a  threat).   Then they let her go.  "The next day Sleiman arrived and  was greeted with effusion by his relatives. "Tijah trembled and was silent.  She dared not tell him of the danger he  was iris but she made up her mind, if  she could get the opportunity, to warn  him to take, cere.

When she regjilped    her ��� senses,' she  feared to movs or look&tfirst, dreading  what 'ghastly eight wpuld meet'"Her.  She 'put but her hand and felt   about  cautiously.

It took no time.to uafasten the kole-h,  nnd in a few moments she had grasped  the paddle and find pep out in hertiny  boat to row over the raijes of sea which  lny between her and her parents' home  ia Malacca,;' It" was & -frail   bark   'tor  sfllefcyT but Sug fgjt fl^'eajiid triisf io  it scans? ibui la tUe$> b\Q&fob\t��*?  a?fffttu't'g8 &U& Ud Utl fchis'd,  A font  way she- rowed, and thenesitday.whfcii  "lhe sun got up and scorched her, she  pulled in her paddle and rolled herself  in her sarong and lay down in the bottom of the, boat and slept.   She   was  aroused by the movement of hear cockle  (shell. ��� It was  night;   a    breeze    had  sprung up and a. squall was   coming;  white crests tipped the waves and   a,  heavy bank of clouds obscured the star-,  light, and in a few moments, a black  pall of darkness enveloped her. ��� The  wind struck the fragile ci-aft, whirling,  it wildly round, and before she could  seize'the paddle to try and steady it, thc  boat capsized, and she was flung into  tho angry sea.   She struck out boldly  and swam until her hands touched the  upturned bark, to which she chmg, endeavoring to right.it,   Poor girl! she  knew, not where she was, how far from  p-liOTe, how long her strength    would  last, and whether thecre was any hope of  succor. ,  At last the .squall passed over and the  water became comparatively calm, but  the moon had not risen nnd she could  see nothing.

She let go her  ,anchorage, and, making one more effort, swam bravely on, and very soon  her feet touched the beach.  "Meanwhile those cruel murderers  had finished their work, and before dtiy-  light dawned had got rid of every trace  of their ill doing. The neighbors inquired what had become of Sleipaau and  why he�� luul eome and gone so suddenly.  ,  " 'Oh,' said -Joua, 'he left hurriedly;  'he took 'Tijah with him and wento.way  in the kloeh at daybreak to catch a  steamer which "would pass there going  to Singapore.'  "It was a very mysterious affair, and  no one could maUce out the truth; but  when tho police had given up all search,  finding they could prove nothing, quite  unexpectedly   tlio  murder was   found  out.    A man of the village went into  the jungle to cut wood, and at midday  he walked down to the creeQc to wnsh  after his food.   Coming back through  tlie swampy mangrove near the river he  noticed   a  very great swarm of flies!  They were like a cloud, they were so  thick.      'What   have-   we    here?'   he  thought; 'some dead animal, perhaps,'  and went to we.

He went and told the police, and they,,  came and took the cask, and the murder-was proved, because the clothes  and the tooth were: those of Sleiman.
