'51113   QUEEN.
By the the death of Queen   Victoria
'he British empire los-e's   its   greatest
.-overeign,and the wt'irld at larc;e loses
'.me of its closest' friends.    TheP Queen
'i'ad become the profound embodiment
of British hope   and    glory,   and - for
more than   three' score .yea'ru she   re
'')iced in   the   nation's   triumphs,   and
its   reverses.    No   other
in    the   respect
- nd affection which all classes cherished
:or her.    The name of Queen  Victoria
'-vill '3udure because of the  sweet   ten-
dernessof her   well, rounded'out life,
■ he magnificent  standard, she  set ,np
;orothers lo follow,, the   glory   of   her
purity, and   the   remarkable   abilities
svhich made her oi  such  eminent in-
ilueucc.
The beginning of the vei§n of  E'ig-
'.uids new king will  be   watchetj   with
merest.    The Prince of Wales tispetuls
''he throne at. a good ripe age and with
'   i good   knowledge   .ii    '.liil.llc   affaini.
(ie baa also abandoned   many of'  the
n ore sportive und frivolous traits which
.dung tn him in earlier life.    But it is
Joubtful if he will ever gain   the confidence and respejt in   which  hia beloved   motner was held  by  her pep;
.pie.  '    '
This i.-, a general dull season of the
yea/ all over the country, but it is safe
to si.y that there is not a town in the
Kooteneyj better able to weather
through than'Moyio. This is due to two
facts: t'r.e businessmen are substantial,
land the town has never suffered' from
( the effects of a fictitious boom,    '

'For some months I suffered  most severely from pains coursing up  and down my back.    It was  thought  that   these  pains were due vto     liver  and kidney trouble, but whatever the  cause, 'they "frequently left me 'in terrible   agony.   The "pains   were not  always confined to the back, but would  shift to other parts of the body.   As  'a result.! got little rest, my appetite  became impaired, and I fell off greatly in  weight.   I  tried different remedies suggested by friends, which having    no    effect    almost  disgusted    me  with    medicine.        Then    a- personal  friend urged me to tfy J)r.  Williams'  Pink     Pills/   I  was   not     easily persuaded  because I had about concluded   that, medicine     would  not  relieve  mo,  but he insisted  and'finally I decided   to   try   'them.    I" purchased   one  box at first, and to my astonishment  before it was  finished I  was greatly  relieved.   "Then I got a couple   more  boxes and   these restored me'to    my  former ,,good   health.' I  do   not  hesitate'recommending this medicine that  others may  profit  by  my experiencft,  and not suffer tortures as I did."  Br.

This phrase Is applied 1 jv men to all  kinds of failures. One of the technical  u.sages of losing one's ^rip is in the  case of telegraph operators.  Many of the most skilled operators  suffer at times from a loss of the "grip"  and are compelled to give way temporarily to a substitute. This "grip'' Is  thp hold on the key. and'the moment  the operator begins to lose the control  of this "grip" he realizes'a rest, although for only a brief time, is due  him.  Another but unpleasant term .applied  to this loss of "grip" is "telegraphers'  paralysis."

Of all the strange customs of foreign  nations those that strike us to be most  peculiar are the marriage customs of the  Russian peasants. It is the aim of every young peasant to acquire for himself a-wife that will be a suitable aid  both in the field and in tlie kitchen, and  I:* leaves the choice to his parents. The  beauty of the young lady and her taste  of. dress aud furniture are little considered, but instead tho dispatch with  which she can perform her daily'duties,  and in the following peculiar way her,  ability in that line is obtained:  - The parents of the young man decide  that a certain young lady would make a  suitable mate for him. They say nothing  about the matter to any one, but on some  evening they will drop around unexpectedly to the prospective bride's home and  will stay for supper. During the meal  they will keep a close watch on -the  young lady., If she eats fast, she will  .perforin her work speedily; if she goes  neatly and cleanly, about her plate, she  will perform her work neatly and cleanly; if she does not talk much, she will  work and not talk and prove a faithful  atitl obedient wife to her husband; if she  prefers rye bread to white, she will be  satisfied with her lot; if she does uot  gaze and stare nt the visitors', she will be  a wife that will not continually pry into  her husband's business and if she immediately proceeds to clean up the dishes  after the meal she will bring prosperity  to her Im.-band aud will be economical  with his money.  Thus the fate of the young couple is  decided. Should she prove satisfactory  to the yuiiu�� man's parents by the above  mentioned actions the parents stay after  supper mill close, the bargain with the  you 11c lady's patents over a bottle of  good vodka.  A most peculiar thing about the marriage ceicinoiiy is the fact that when tho  couple enter the church both groom and  bride make a dash for the platform, on  which is the pulpit. !t is believed that  the one whose toot touches the platform  lust will live tin* longer and that the  children will take after that one iu size,  health nii-I beauty.  The festivities last three days, durin?  which all friends and 1 datives celebrate  a hi.Iiday. The bride is adorned in a  bandana of the biightcst hue and with  ribbons of all colors and shades. The  irroom has a new fur hat and a skin  overcoat tied with a belt of brightest red.  The marriages generally take place in  the full, alter the harvest has been gathered.

"I was not much injured���no���btit  whatever thoughts I had- had of spending an enjoyable evening were rudely  dispelled from my mind, No, I was not  injured, but I could almost swear that  one of Hie pedals of that machine had  cut out a few square inches of my shin  bone and I imagined I could feel it  dangling about my ankle.- I was also  aware of the fact that tjiere were several  non-repairable punctures in my trons>-  ers and mat my anatomy was bruised  and sore in more places thain I could  enumerate in a three-page article.  "To tell the truth I was not at all  anxious to continue the demoralizing  lesson, as I was sure that this experience would bo the death of me- but I  wouldn't for an instant think of telling my fair companion that I had to  give -up.  ���'No! she should be the first to say it  was time to postpone the practice'until  another day.   I waa in hojjes the wheel  was in^suoh condition, a.fter,tho hard  fall, that it would be impossible to use  it, but outside of a few scratches, it  came out of the tumble as did itsowner  ������not in the leant damaged,  _"\V>1I. ���wp tried  tvho mounting- business over again, and this time I was  prepared for the shock and she did land  | on the saddle most beautifully.    After  , I had  balanced the seemingly uncon-  j tTollable wheel and told her to got ready  | for the start off, she said to mo that she  i could ride fairly well now that she was  , on and if 1 would just take hold under  | the back of the saddle and follow her in  | that way she thought she could pedal  1 forward  very well.    I did as she told  me and after giving the wheel a slight  '��� piiih she moved off.   Ye��, she went'it  ! alone all right.   All I had to do was to  1 follow her.    At first she went slowly,  ' at what you would call a dog-trot, then  - she. increased her speed.   And still all  ', I had to do was to follow her!  :     "As we were booming merrily onward,  i she_ on the bicycle and I on foots she  asked mc if I rlicln't.,think this most  I exhilcrating sport.   Of course, I said it  was.    Then she_ said she enjoyed it so  much that she would continue on this  same  course  until  she became tired,  when she would dismount, and after a  hioted po hue that 1 Bpmetimes became  fatigued, she ���would -have been going  yet.-'-'But she'did final'ly stop.'sfaffc in  shijer exh;iu.stioai-I feJJ to- the roadside*  and -when. I had .tim^'to' recover my  breath and look' about;'us I^fouud <w��  were away out. ia .the country, vatj|  least three miles from.''liomei'' She sat  down.; a t -the rondside,- a little .way- from  me,..'Then. she.,talkedt.-       :  - . .���   .  "She dilated' upori- th'e beauties of  the 'summer's csyening, .the nrulti-col-  ,ored foliage of the' trees, the irridescenl  clouds  which loo-ked'Tike rare jewels  hung in the western: skies,, as-the rays  of the-no-w obscured-stincastindescrib1  able glittering 'lima over them.   But  poor me, my body and mind were racked  with' pain, and.l did not appreciate bur  surroundings."' After the fall then the  unusual exercise, erery   muscle   and  nerve in my body'seemed to tingle with  electric shocks'.-* I was'just about done  up and when I would! think of the return journey mj heart would nearly  bound from, its**natural and best location.   Every breath I took seemed to be  drawing hiujo chunks of solid air'into  my lumgs, instead-"of 'the pure, country  atmosphere which I was actually talcing into my ey-atem.  0[- was tired, s6re  and   disgusted  with  everything, even,  with tho' maiden at my side, whom, I  now thought one oi the ugliest, most  uninteresting ptjrsonfr it had liceii, my  mlsto-minc, tjf'iUe^j:.' �� wast thinking,  thiaking deeplyj'thl'i.ilj.bg some, things  ,1 would not dare tiunlcViloiuVwhcn I  'was suddenly brought to my senses by  my fan* companion saying;' ;vVell, I'm  ready.'    Bo wtia ��I-~I had to be, qnd I  nt one�� arose 'and grabbed up that  wheel.   Of course, before I could start  her. honiewarddt was first necessary to  get her on to the bicycle, and 1 trembled as I thought of the task before me.  This  time Iubraced myself against n  fence  and  held onto that wheel like  griin-visaged death,-and   when   Mjes  Jones boarded it in really artistio style,  I was greatly pleased.   I started her off  gentiy and then took hold of the Baddle  again, prepared' to trot homo back of  the young ladylike hT^'ogr following its  master.    I was congratulating myself  upon the lit/tie froub'ld experienced m  getting her started, wh^n the front  \vh-aei oMhe b&pj'o $>$$& to wplftlo.  rani ahtifjl w$ttt>H4Cri?jiftnflltf bin'into  a fence, Luckily, I was on th a opposite  aide of th6 wheel and p.iiilJng terrifically  at the nigh handle-bar J got it and its  burden again perpendicular. .Thie time  I aisked her if she were injured, and  showing me an aw-ful-ly.bruised hand,  she bravely replied, 'a little, but .it's im-  matexial,-' Why, the ��kin was scraped  off the whole side of her hand, but she  bore it like a heroine. And right here  I wish to say that I began to think just  a wee little bit more of Miss Jones than  1 had while we were aittingattberoadr  -���side a way back.  '  -"Once again, she started homeward  and by the way she pumped'an.d'pushea'  those pedals I know she was mad about  that accident, and as she gained speed,  I also began to realize that my powers of  endura-Qce would give out ere long, unless she reduced her gait. A t last I had  , to give up but I said nothing to her. I  let her guide on homeward, as \ thought  she would -soon! notice my absence and  then would either dismount or fall off, I  cared not which. Butshe went on and I  gradually lost sight of her in the darkness that was growing upon'the face of  the earth. I was glad that she had gone  and I leisurely clinabed upon a rail fence  at the roadside and sat there meditating. I was mad- clear through and the  more I meditated the angrier I got. But  at last it dawned upon me that it was  not the proper thing, for me to be sitting upon a wayside fence and leave a  young lady to take her own way home  after nightfall. Horror of horrors! suppose she had fallen from her bicycle  and at this very'instant'was lying in  the road, possibly with a broken leg  or injured in some other way so as to be  unable to move. Suppose a team of  spirited horses were approaching and  tlie driver could not see that prostrate  form and ran over it, Ugh! the very  thoucrht made my blood run cold. 1  jumped from the'fence and started in  the direction in which Miss��Jones had  gone. I walked along slowly, but as  more horrible possibilities came to my  mind I went faster until at last I was  running as fast as I could, but even then  I thought -I was going at a snail's pace.  Half a dozen' times I imagined I saw  Miss Jones on the ground ahead of me  but always found it to be but a hallucination of my wild and disordered brain.  I did finally reach town and because I  bad not found Miss Jones lying on the  road in a pool of blood I was sure that  she had been spirited away or kidnapped. '  'T rushed to tho home of her parents.  Tier brother John was sitting on tlie  porch smoking a horribly rank stogy  and when I excitedly asked.him where'  his sister was he looked at me as t hough  he considered me a lunatic. I implored  him to tell me, for the love he bore his  sister.  "lie looked at me again, then slowly  turned his eyes toward the side of the  house. My eyes followed his, and there  Miss Jones stood, cool and collected  with a heavenly smile on her face, and  how beautiful she looked. But I fell  to the ground in a dead faint and when  next I realized anything I was in ray  own room at home, with my dear mother at my bedside. I looked at her ques-  tioningly, and then said: 'Mother, how  many weeks have I been ill?' She  looked frightened, then answered:  'Why, my rlearson. vou'vebeen herebu'  KATES  k.1*: iO< TT1T   Y^Tn^T"?0-l 'a.  NEW STORE  .NEW ST011JS.
