Technically this amounted  to  a  defeat of  the government, but  in  spite  of  the  result of   the   voles   the  government  held oil, hoping for the arrival, of "one  moro member to give them the 'upper  hand again,, as the'vote was 18   to  17,  and oue vole more makes things even  in the house,   with   the  speaker's deciding voice iu   favor   of   the" Semlin)  party. ��� ,    ,     ,  Premier Semlin's motion to have  tbo lieutenant governor's speech dealt  with on Monday next was negatived  by 19 to IS, the, opposition applauding rapturously at their'victory. ��� A  motion that the house adjourn till  Monday. was similarly voted down,  aue then Turner, leader' of the oppo-  Bitioiv took the reins and moved that  lhe house adjourn till Tuesday.

The fact of   thero   being   search/ a  particle of ice on Moyie   lake   at   this  time of the'year is  causing   no   small  amount of comment.   It is something  which the history of   the   cuntry has  never before recorded.  As a  rule  the  ice on Moyie lake begins to form about  the middle of December and is sufficiently strong to bear a team  of  horses  by Christmas.

Ottmar Mergenthaler,   the  inventor  of  the  linotype  typesetting  machine,  died at Baltimore, Md., on Suture _iy,  Oct.   2S,   1S99,   of  consuruption.    He  was born    In    Germany  on May  10,  1S54.   He was tbe third in a family  of five children, the father of whom,  Johann  Georg  Mergenthaler,, ^was     a  teacher   in   the   public     schools.      At  the age    of    14 young   Mergenthaler  left the village schools and entered a  seminary,   where  he  was     to  receive  his     traiiiiiig- for a   teacher,     but he  was- not   personally   in   favor   of   the  profession,  and  remembering that he  "ha/1   been' very , successful   in   doctor-r,  ing the town clock and .various work  o�� similar nature,  he  concluded  that  machinery was tha thing in, which Ire  could   become  most,   interested.      So,  instead of    becoming    a-teacher,    he  chose     an   apprenticeship' under     his  stepmother's   brother,   Air.   Hohl,     a  watch    and     clockmaker  at     Bietig-  heim, a town of about -1,000 inhabitants.   He concluded, his   apprenticeship  in  the Hohl shop  in the fall  ol  1S72 and   emigrated   to   the     United  States,  arriving  in _ Baltimore  in   October of that year. '  In 1S77 he finished his first machine that would produce print without typo composition, then another  in' 1S7S, which was worked for five  3'ears. Tn 1S8-1- these machines were  abandoned by his partners, ' and Air.  Mergcr��thaler ���. udertook. the task  alone. Ho formuhi.ted his . own principles, which found expression in a  drawing- toward the close of ' 1879,  the year his partners left , him.  These drawings-he'destroyed in a fit  of anger caused by, extreme financial  straits to which the'-enterprisc had  reduced him.' Tn the end there was  no money to proceed with, and he .regarded the chances so��slim that" in  1SJ31 he sold his plans and interests  'to a friend foa* ��60.' Air. M'ergenthl-  cr again became a' partner " in the  Hohl establishment, and in _thc fall  of 18S1 married Miss Emma Lachen-  mayer. In 3S83 the partnership was  dissolved, acid Mr. Mergenthaler  started a business of his own on  Bank Lane, in tliat city, and again  grappled the printing problem.,  His new idea was: "Why. have- n  spparate matrix at all? Why. can- I  not stamp matrixes into my type  bars and cast metal into them in  the same machine?" lt was the first  'conception of a casting and composing machine ,iie ane," and the first machine completely, proved a finished  ��� success. That, was Uie first linotype  vented , by Mr. Mergenthaler, a.nd  constructed nt a cost of S-JOO. A  'company was formed, called the Na-  tkvrnl Typographical , Company of  West Virginia, with offices and factory at 201 Camden street, Baltimore. Mr.' Mergenthaler"s Bank Lane  establishment formed the nucleus to  the new shop, and the company .supplied a liberal line of tools and' machinery. Mr. Mergenthaler assumed  full management of tlie factory, with  a written contract assuring him oi  10 per cent, of' the sale cost of  machines' made." This was, indeed,'a  small share, considering that the  commercial success ,of the enterprise  depended almost entirely upon him.  The company held together- a while,  but was finally dissolved and passed  into  the. hands  or  a syndicate.  Ii�� 1885 Mr. Mergenthaler perfected the independent matrix machine,  which, on trial, complied with' every  expectation. 'J'he same , year the  Mergenthaler Printing Compfuiy was  founded, of which Air. Mergenthaler  owned 1,000 shares. This ' unequal  position of being inventor and .also  bearing equally the expenses of the  concern ,soon seriously embarrassed  him. Finally Win telaw Keid of The  Tribune, Xew York, came to his assistance with the agreement that hc  should hold the stock as security acid  have 6 per cent, on all money advanced. The first completed machine  after this deal went to The Tribune  office, where it proved to be the best  yet produced, The years that followed under the' Iteid management  were very trying *io Mr. Mergenthaler, and finally exhausted hi hi completely. Troubles, eha-nges and litigations were numerous, nnd through  it all he was a prey to a syndicate  that allowed him but meagre returns  for his labors. lit i 88S Mr. Mergenthaler, weakened by years of overwork, fell a victim to pleurisy,  which came near ending his life. He  recovered, but his weakened constitution1 was seized by consumption,  which gradually but surely cut him  down.  In late years Mr. Mergenthaler  worked on his machines, perfecting  them more and more in many details. It has been -four years since  he was compelled to relinquish personal 'control of the factory, but  since then it has been conducted by  responsible management. At last hi.s  labcvs and ingemilly yielded a fair  competence, but nothing like the vast  wealth which should rightfully be  his.

There was just  tbe odd chance that bo might be a bio to  help as, aud I could not afford to disregard it.   -  It'  appeared   that Mr. Gates   lived at'  the Metropolis, and as soon as I obtained  this information   I went there in quest'  of him.    As luck had it, Mr. Gates was  in   tbo'hotel when I called, and  I was  shown up to his room.,,-  As Mr.,Gates was not a  permanent  resident  thcio  I was somewhat struck  with   the luxurious wuy in  which   his  sitting room was furnished.   Thero was  a total abseuco of the. usual hotel furniture, and  in   its place was  a variety of  articles that bes-poko tho catholic  taste  of   the owiier.   There "wore easy chairs  and  lounges,'covered with eastern rugs  and   silks, and curtaius of   soft  Indian  texture.   On the walls was a display of  allJ-cnri'oi.s and fantastic weapons,���Damascus kv. ords. Moorish daggers and a genn-  i.'.-e Andrea Ferrara.   There, were a few  etching!*,     i'.nd   on    tho  mantelpiece   a  number of photographs, while ou various ca'-iuFts wuj arranged a goodly show  cf Boi'rmiiftu .and Viennese glass.    My  eye-- tii.,k all (his in us I enrered,' but my'  ci k-f atte-Jiioii was, of coiirsu, centered  in Mv. '-lares  himself.    He was a thin,  wiiv man of   middle height, and   one's  - fir.-1  iinpres.-ion of   hiin was of   au lyo-  gln*i.*: and a rnw of yellow jagged teeth.

This one, I'think, is passably  comturhibh*. Will you have a cigarette? ;  I can recommend these. I import them  myself from Alexandria."  Mr. Gates' carefully closed up his  writing case and seated himself negligently in an easy chair opposite me.  "Aud how is Georgo bearing up?" he  went on. "It is a teiribie position for  him to be placed in. That unlucky  speech of mine has caused ino endless  regret. Bnt how coald I know what  was go'ng to occur?"  "Oh, qui to so. I don't see that any  blame attaches to you, Mr. Gates. In  tho very worst case you only accelerated  events, us George's arrest would inevitably have followed. Ho is bearing up a.-3  well as wo could expect, but, of course,  liO;feels- his position acutely, and at the  present moment lliiugslook very hlac.lt'  against him. I hope that1 if you cau.belp  us at all in the defense you will do so."  "If loan he of the slightest use, you  may be certain of my services," ho replied. "But I,am afraid I don't see in  what wayl'shall be able to assist you. V  "Well, I will tell you, Mr. Gates!  You. see wo are firmly convinced of  George's.innoceiico, but perhaps I ought  first to tell you 1 am engaged to his sister, which will account for. the interest  lam taking in the case." ,      ,   ���'.-,.  ,"I believe I heard that," Gates replied.  "Very well. We are, as I was saying,  firmly convinced-.of our friend's innocence, although tho facts look very,  black. A few days ago I. should have  said tho defense was hopeless,' but since  tbe identification of the murdered woman as the Duke of Lundy's daughter���  of which, of course, you have heard��� f.  think there is 'a glimmer of daylight for  us."  "Well, Captain Brett, I am listening," said Gates, ae I made a pause.  "I will bo absolutely frank" with you,  Mr. Gates," I continued, "for 1 think  you may be .able to ibelp us, since yon  have traveled a great deal rrhd havo con-  aequeutly rubbed   up  against inuumep  Jar might Shed a light on her mysterious  disappearance, if we could only find  him."  "And who may he be?" .  "A certain Arthur Duranr.    Do  yon  happen to know him, sir?"  "Mr. Keighley Gates deftly ejeeled  half a dozen rings, of cigarette smoke  and, then looked at mo with a curiou?  smile on his lips.  "Well, yes,'I dp," he replied. "Ar  one time I knew him iurimately,1 but I  havo not seen him for tbe last two or  three years. Still I get an'occasional  letter .from him."  ��� I waa overjoyed at 'this news. What  a lucky- inspiration it was that had  prompted me to look up Mr. Gates!,  "Havo you had a letter receutly?" I  inquired! �� '  , "Tho last oue would'be about���let  tne see"���and Mr. Gates pondered for  a moment or two. "Yes, about four  months ago, as near as my memory,  serves me." / ' ^  "And where was he then?"  "Ho wrote from Denver, and said ho  was  just moving on to Salt Lake City  and from there  ho  intended   going  to  Frisco." ��� '_  "Thou afc this moment San Francisco  might be a likely spot to make inquiries  in?"' ..  "Gates laughed. <  ''It certainly'might be, but if ��� you  knew Arthur Durant you would know  tho utter impossibility of following his  movements by any known or unknown  method. As he mentionod Frisco, I  should, think New York or Florida a  likely spot to find him in."  This news considerably depressed me.  So much seemed, to depend upou this  man, and yet from Gates' account it  was apparently hopeless to expect that  he could be found in time;     '   '  "What would you adviso us to do,  Mr. Gates?" , '  "Make inquiries by all means in Salt  Lake City and Frisco, but don't build  any hopes in that direction. I ought'to  have a letter from him soon, and that  '���will put- us on his track at once. I think  I havo' his last epistle by me still. If so,  the address will, be useful. I'll look for  it now."'  Gates unlocked a drawer and looked  through some letters filed with extreme  care. '  "I'm afraid I destroyed it," ho said,  afc length. "I now remember what I  kept it for, and as soon ,as the purposo  was fulfilled I burned 'it. I never keep  old letters; 'it would not fit in with my  wandering life!" '  This was disheartening. ^Howover, 1  determined to find out something aboufc  tho mau I wanted. ' .  ���"Yon say you knew him Jutimately,  Mr. Gates?" "   ���  in Salt Lake City and in Frisco, aud'  can either write to them to make id-  quiries or give you letters of introduction to them if you prefer to do so your-  self." ' , ,,  "You are extremely kind," I replied,  "and I cannot thank you enough for  your offer aud the information you have  given me. If you would be good enough  to write to your friends- yourself ou the  matter, I shall bo much indebfcod to you.  I simply want to he0put in communication with Mr. Duranfc."  "I undtirstand perfectly," said Mr.  Gates, "and I will writo by the next;  mail and ask , for a cable if Duranfc ia  found."       ��� ,.  I thanked him warmly for his good  offices and rose to go. And now notice  on what trivial things our lives aro  biade to hiiigo.' I had been rather struck  by soma' of the weapons displayed on  tbo walls, and as I walked toward the  door made Home remark ..about them.  Gates seemed pleased:to show his curios  and gave mcBomo interesting particulars about them. I was standing by the  drawer which Gates had opened to find_  Durant's letter. ,It had -jammed when''  bo tried to close it and ho had ��� left it  half open. Iii tho corner nearest me I  happened to hotico a photograph on'the ���  top of some papar.-:.' lt struck my eye  quito casually,and somehow itawakeaed  recollections in my mind. I glanced at  it agaiu whilo my host was talking and  showing" tho weapons, lc was'the picture of a woman, and I was certain I  had seen it before, but for the life of  uie I could not remember wheu ��� or  where, and all .tbo time I was talking  and lijtetiing to .Gates my mind was  groping for a clew, but I oould not find  one'.  , Afc last I hado my host adieu and left"  him'. I was very well satisfied with my  afternoon's work,' for  I  felt  sure that  Durant would be  able   to  help   us and  wishful to do so, since he had undoubtedly been in   lovo with Lady Florence.  I was thinking of this while I was making my way out of tho hotel. I had jusfc  gained the pavement outside when sud-' <  dsnly it Unshod across me why tho photograph in Mr. Keighley Gates' drawer  had attracted my attention.'  ��� I had  scon   tbafc<.*photograph   before,  nnd ic was then   in  the   Scotland Yard  album, ovor tho namo of Lacly Florence  .

Ho had gone up there  to inspect some mion mines, and I was  there to look at some gem deposits. We  both foregafc'herocV at a little tbreo  roomed wooden house, which was more  drinking shanty than hotel, and'as tbe  mica and gems were iu adjacent sliata  we did much of our work together. II  was*a longish job, because tho stuff we  were after was undoubtedly tbore, and  ��� what,we'had to decide was whether tho  quantities would pay for working, and  so tbreo months of daily intercourse  had passed before we could, arrive afc  our decision. You can get ,to know a  man very well in tbat time.  "Then-I saw nothing of him until I  rau up against him in the Strand about  tbreo  years ago.    He  scorned to bo in  clover afc thafc^ time.   Ho told iho he had  made his pile'and was then engaged in  ��� spending it.   He had'just taken a hunting box in a   sporting  county, .and'ho  asked mo to>stay with.him.    I intended  doing so, but never found tho time.   I  saw birn again after he had giveu ifc up.  He  talked  of'traveling,   but   had  no  ; definite plane.

Ho writes to mo three or four  j times iu tho twelvemonth, and tholast  ; letter I had from- him was, as 1 said,  from Donver, about four months ago."  "When he'was in tbo country, Mr.  Gates, ho paid marked attentions to  Lady Florence Mostyn, and, I believe,  asked tho Duke of Luncly for his daughter's baud. Tho duke refused it, and  soon afterward Lady Florence disappeared. From your knowledgo of Iho  man, do you think it probable tbat Du-,  rant was concerned in that? Do you  think ho persuaded tho ludy. to rim away  with him, in fact?"  Mr. Gates lay buck iu his chair and  reflected.u few minutes beforo r'opiying.  Then ho said slowly: '  "It isadifficulfc thing to bo certaiu of  any man's conduct where a woman is  concerned, Captain'Brett.

Pie is straight as  a die, and I would trust him as I truKfc  myself."  ,"He certainly hnc.a -very good friend.  in you, Mr. Gates," I remarked, for  Gates' defense of his absent friend had  somewhat, surprised me. I had certainly  uot giveu himcredit of being capable of  so much chivalrous feeling for anybody.-  Gates did not reply, but, wont on:  ,  "And Durant could hardly be the  man you want, siuco ho left tbe oountry  so soon after tho lady'a disappearance.  He must havo been an ardent lover,  whoovor persuaded her to take tho step,  and would scaroely have tired of her'bo  Boon."  IIla ModeM Luncheons.

"T would go into a cafe^  perhaps' pretty hungry, but two or  tree minutes' study.-of the huge menu  would put me in nu uncertain!

Now you ought  lo know what a nice luncheon is belter  thau 1 do, so I make you this proposal:  Serve me every day a luuch of my  usual number of courses, and whatever  under $1.25 it costs you can keep.'  "The waiter jumped at, that. He  brings me every day now a better meal ,  than 1 would think of ordering myself,  and he'makes from 20 to 30 cents by  keeping down the price. It is a spleu-  did scheme, and I wonder why I never  thought of it before."���Philadelphia  Record.  They Don't  Iviiovr Nerve*.

Insufficient quantity or poor quality of  the blood is one of the evil results that  usually follow any derangement of the  heart.      , ��� ���  If the heart becomes weakened in any  way it cannot pump the blood to the lung3  as it should, there to be purified and impregnated with the life-giving oxygen.   '  As a result the  blood deteriorates.  It loses its nourishing, vitalizing,  health-giving qualities. The face becomes pale, thin  and waxen, the lips  bloodless, tlio hands  and feet cold.  There is weakness, tirodness,  shortness of breathand palpitation. When  those suffering from thin or watery blood  start taking Milbum's Heart and Nervo  Pills they aro assured of a cure. Every  dose acts on the heart itself, causing it  to beat strong, steady and regular.  Every dose, too, introduces into the  blood those vital-, elements necessary to  make it rich and red.

NEW  METHOD   OF   THEAT-  ��� ��� M3BNT  THAT CUBES A LARGE  PERCENTAGE OF  CASES.  Cancer. I1113 for so many nges beeu considered an incurable disease that to talk, seriously, about it seems like mockery. But such  is the advance of medical science in these  latter days, that things tbat were impossible  in our fathers' timo are quite possible now.  The knife, the cautery, the plaster and the  paste have had their turn, and all havo proved  dismal failures, and thoir failure is due-to  the fact that cancer is not a local but a constitutional disease. The advent of.our.Vegetable . Cancer Cure marked a new era in tlie  treatment of malignant growths. It brought  new hopes to hundreds who shrank from tho  surgeon's knife, with it-3 dangers and its disappointments. The many we have cured  here in Canada, and,whose names and addresses we will cheerfully give, is demonstration that removes every shadow of a  doubti as to the eiTieacy of our treatment.  Send your name and address, enclosing  two stamps, aud 'we will mail you in plain  envelope our'treatise and' testimonials. Do  not delay in this matter, for every day's do-  lay makes your case harder to cure. STOTT  <fc JURY, Bowmanville, Ont.  Priv.i c WTire Connection wl'h a't Leading  Markets.
