MARTIN FOLEY.  Dated at-Moyie, this, 1st day of March, 1899.  Craiibrorilt's Jt?o]>uI_p Hotel.  ! The Cosmopolitan Hotel in >��� Cranbrook, which was recently thrown open  to the public, is meeting with the success it deserves, for indeed it is one of  the finest hosieries in East Kootenay,  and is a credit to the tovrn in which it  is' located.  , The, public, whose judgment of  hotels is usually final, have by their  extended patronage of this comfortable  and cosy house evidently decided this  question in the affirmative. The  hotel was fitted lip with a view of securing the cream of the trade, and in  this they have nobly succeeded. The  room's in the Cosmopolitan are large  and comfortable and the building is  heated throughout with hot 'air, the  only' one so heated in   the district,  *' V . 1  The dining room is' tastefully and artistically finished. This work ' was  done under tho supervision of RIessrs.  Pieper & Curry aud is another evidence of their skill as paper hangers  and decorators. The dining room is  kept open both day and night and the  best of everything and most excellent  service are the attractions which the  public will find in this department.  The Cosmopolitan, in the hands of  Messrs. Small & Rlusgrave, is under  splendid management. They are both  reliable, affable aud courteous gentlemen and well deserving of their success.  '  -  Nelson's Smelter Kottlod Up.  . The man who was, and probably is  still, the chairman of the board cf directors of the Hall Rlines. is a, senti-  mentamlist, says the Nelson Tribune.  In support of this statement it is  well known, that he sanctioned  ocatiug the company's smelter at its  present site, in order that it could do  business with the Canadian Pacific  rlailway only. He did not want to do  business with roads operated by aliens,  even is the roads were locatcd^in Brit  ish Columbia. The result of this sen-  timentalism is tliat ore mined within  30 miles of his company's smelter is  shipped to a smelter in a foreign country. The reason for this is the Hall  Mines smelter at Nelson has no trackage connection with the Nelsou <.��  Fort Sheppard, a railway that traverses all the mining country between  Nelson and the" international boundary line. Another result of this  sentimentalism is the Canadian .Pacific; haul's silver-lead ore right through  Nelson to its own smelter at Trail, 60  miles'ftwayv     ������  Her Sugcestioii. .  He was dreaming about the bob-tail  flush he had tried to fill enrlier in the  evening.  "Oh, for another club!" he cried in  bis sleep. ... '  Then it was that she shook him and  woke him  up. '  .., "It woulu't do you any good," she  said, "I've takeu the precaution' to put  the axe within reach ou my side of  the bed.".. (i   "  . .   * -        -  Truly it had been well said even before she married that she was a moat  resourceful woman. ���  GENERAL  NEWS NOTES.  Creston'has a  regularly established  postoffice.'  A movement is on foot to  organize  an I 0, 0. F. lodge in Cranbrook.'  Sullivan stock is noiy quoted at 16|*  tlcents, says the Fort Sljole Prospector.  Chicago News:   ��� Don't neglect  to  keep your shoes  polished. You  can  always shine at one end, if you  can't  at the other. .  The Nelson Rliner says that within  six weeks the work of constructing the  Crow's Nest Pass line from Kootenay  landing to "Nelson will begin.  The' new lead stack at   the  ^i&il  smelter was blown in this week. Shipments of silver-lead ore from   the  Slc-  can   and   Rio3rie   are   being  receiv-"  daily, and the new stack will  be  rui  at its,full capacity.  Thc current talk in Anglo-Canadian  circles discloses a general idea that Sir  William Van Home is about to carry  out his long contemplated retirement  from' the presidency of the Canadi ',n  Pacific railway company, and thaf ?.  &?Shaughnessy, now vice preside!;,  will be hia, successor.  A yo__'g lady of very extraordinary  ability lately addressed the following  letter to her cousin: "We is all well,  and mother's got his'Terrix; brother  Tom is got the ' Hupin Kaugh, and  sister Ann has got a babee, and I hope  these few lines will find you the same.

Zinc ore took a jump last week and  at Galena, Ivan., and Webb City, Rio.,  sold at !r'*i5 a ton, the highest price  ever known, and $3.50 a ton above the  best price of the previous day.

Ou the same train in which she is to  go, a plain woman, apparently somewhat  past middle age, dressed in the regulation  costume of a nurse from St. Luke's' hos-  pital,enters and takes her seat. Hor hair,  very gray for one of her apparent age,  i.s parted in the middle, tind combed  smoothly back from her placid brow, oil  which tho lines of ago or care are deepening.  Largo steel-mounted spectacles shade  the eyes, which are resting, thoughtfully  upon her cotton-gloved hands lying idly,  in her lap, and tho border of the nurse's  cap peeps from beneath the large Quaker*  bonnet which surmounts her head. Upon  che seat by her sido is a cheap traveling  bag and huge blue cotton umbrella.  The shadows are lengthening in the  level rays of the declining sun, as the  express train, with a shrill shriek, comes  slowly pulling into the Deepdale station;  md tho old lady, with satchel and umbrella in hand, slowly alights from thc  ���joach, and stands upon tho platform  ���mong tho group of idlers, which , may  usually bo seen upon the arrival of the  cars ut country stations, shading her  ������yes from tho evening sun with her left  hand, while sho looks inquiringly about  her.  Presently a coachman, dressed in liv-  -ry, approaches, and inquires if she is  ilie'nurse for Deepdale.

"Then this is Deepdalo. I was.almost  afraid that I liad .made some mistake."  "No mistake, mum.

She is thankful for the fast   gathering  twilight which   shades   the room in partial gloom, and, making a' great menral  effort at self-control, she crosses the rich  moquette carpet of the'room with a light  firm step, and pauses beside   the elegant  bed which stands.in a shadowy recess of  tho largo apartment,  ' Supported   by     numberless  which   raises   him   almost   to  posture upon the bed.   reclines  tient, and ho looks out   at   the  sho approaches his side with   great black  eyes, which - shine   with   an    unnatural  luster from   tho   depth   of their sunken  sockets.

"You are tho nurse, madam," says  tho.sufferer, In a hollow voice, ,a she  pauses beside the bed. " ��   ,  Helen drops a littlo deferential courtesy,  -which could not havo been better done  by the housekeeper herself, as sho answers:���  "Yes, I am Mrs. Evan3, and was sent  by tho physician from St. .

Jly valet will put you in the way  of your duties. Ho has a room adjoining  this, find you may cull him whenever  you like, and he will take your place by  my bed-side every night at ten o'clock."  Then he closes his eyes ns it from exhaustion, caused by the effort it cost him  t'o speak so much. ' ���  "If.you will kindly give me tho necessary directions I will take'charge of the  patient at onco, so that you may obtain  some rest," says Rolen, looking toward  the weary-looking .valet as she speaks.  "Thank you," returns the valet, bowing politely; - and walking towards a  table covered with various articles necessary in tho s-.cl*: room, Mrs. Evans, (as  we shall now call her) follows him, and  ne proceeds to givo her minute directions  concerning the administration of medicine���wine, beef tea, etc.���and- then gees  back to tho bedside of the patient and  asks" leave to retire for a short time.  "You may go; I shall do very well,"  returns Captain Lennard, without unclosing his eyes.  Mrs. Evans seats herself beside him,  using the fan as the valet has done.  Presently tho tiny clock upon the marble  mantle rings out the half hour, and the  nurse goes to the table-and lights one of  'the softly shaded larap9, and prepares the  patient's medicine. As she bunds over  him in the act of giving him the medicine, he looks into her face so curiously  aud keenly, that she feels the hot blood  mounting to her temples and surging  across ber deeply stained olive cheek,and  the hand which holds tho goldllned teaspoon shakes visibly.  Hi* swallows the medicine and , says:  ','Your face reminds me vaguely of s.omo  one whom I havo seen .before, and ' but  indistinctly remember.

Some ice, please;  tho taste of that medicine is most.unpleasant."  She hastens to prepare the ico desired,  thankful for tin opportunity of turning  her face from.his penetrating eyes.  When she returns to the bedside she is  calm agaiti, and feeds him tho ico from  a spoon with tho firm, careful hand of a  practiced nurse.  The housekeeper tiptoes into tho room,  aud whisDers to the nurso that hor dinner ia waning,' ami oilers to taii'o tier  place in the sick room until.she returns.  .At an assenting look from tho sick man,  Mrs. Evans leaves the room, and finds  Johnson, the footman, waiting in tho.  hall to,conduct her to'tho servants' din-  ing-hall.  "Does this new nurse make yon think  of sdmeouo whom you have known bo-  fore, Hicks?" says Captain Lennard to  tho housekeeper as soon as Mrs. Evans  has left'the room.  "Well I   been    ha . thinking she does,  sir,".returns-the].housekeeper.    "I   keep  ha look'in' hat 'er, hand thinkses I, 'w's  his hit you   looks   like?'    then    I think  'hi'm just goin'   to think   w'o   hit his,'  when la, sir! hits gone hout of my-mind  like a flash, hand   I thinks hit /must ha  ' been-somebody   I   knowed   when : I was  young in hold .

Her heart beats audibly to her own  cars, beneath the smoothly folded nurse's  kerchief upon her bosom, and she mentally prays that he may not penetrate her  disguise  Thp next morning Mrs. Evans is up  long before any of the servants aro astir  at Deepdalo. Leaving hor own room, she  steals softly down tho back stairs, and  goes out into tho grounds for a little  fresh air, before repairing for tho day to ���  the room of the sick man.  Tho great king of nay has not yet  made hi*? appearance, but the eastern  horizon is lighted up with a flame of  crimson glory, which heralds his approach, and thu morning air is pure and  balmy, and laden with the spicy odor of  blooming flowers.  Slie follows om of the winding, rtearly  remembered walks, which leads to a tiny  summer   house,   with   Its   latticed sides  covered with clambering vines.   She enters and   peats   herself   upon   tha   rustic  bench, her heart swelling the while with  tender memories of her maidenhood.    In  this place she had sat while her youthful  lover knelt at her feet, and   breathed liis  oft repeated yows of   eternal   constaacj*.  She smiles   happily   as   she thinks how  well those vows have  been   kept.    Then  sho thinks of Dseptiale,,and   wonders   if  the, dear old place has gone   forever   cut  of the possession of its   riehtful   owners.  During Mrs. St. Clair's   lifetime,    the  shrubbery aud Krounds had been kept in  the*   most   beautiful    order   imaginable;  and Helen glances from   the door' of rho  , summer houso at tho   neglected    appearance of   all within sight,    arid    marvels  much that this state of things is permitted by the man who   had seemed    ready  to move heaven   and   earth    if needs be,  to possess himself of this grand ancestral  homo of the St. Clairs.

A curious and somewhat puzzled  look steals over tha old physician's facr*,  which still lingers there when he , leaves  tho room.  He says at parting:���  "Yes, Mr?. Evans, you will seo that  my instructions are fully carried out in  regard to our patient, and I shall look  in again before returning to tho city this  afternoon."  The iiurso breathes a good   deal   more  freely after the physician has bidden her  good   morning   and    walked   away,   for ,  most, of all she has feared detection from j  the keen-eyed ol-J doctor.

CHAPTER   XXII.���TIIE    MYSTERY  DEEPENS.  Mrs.   Evans  , the bedside  tho   house,   recalls   the  self-appointed  nurse from her delightful contemplation  of the beauties of uaturo, to a sense of  her duties tor tho day, and sho turns  her reluctant footstep toward thi_, house.  That Captain Lennard is upon his  death-bed is very evident, even to her Inexperienced 03'e. Consumption has  marked him for ita victim, as the hollow  cough, the hectic flush, and unaturally  bright eye too plainly tell to bo mistaken. Strange, that this man i.s dying  with the sam-j'disease whichr, carried off  his wife, dying,, too, in tho same' room,  the same bed, that she die.i in.  In tho nii.ist of this train of thought,  the nui'**e reaches her room, and when  she kneels beside her lowly white bed,  and offers up her morning devotions the  prayer trembles upon her lips that the  dying nian'schcart. may be moved before  it is too late, to restore thi3 ancestral  home at least to its rightful owners.  She rises from hor knees, and begins  her small, preparations preparatory ' to  again taking up her watch in the sick  room. Shd smiles at the image her face  reflects in the mirror of her room, as she  smooths the gray hair' buck from her  curiously line 1 torohead, and tucks it  neatly beneath the nurse's'cap. Sho readjusts her glasses, smooths down her  wide white kerchief and crosses its ends  upon bur bosom���ties on a large, fresh,  white,apron, and in a moment moro is  gently tapping at the door of tho sickroom. r  Ihe door is opene.. by the sick man's  val*t, and after a few brief words havo  passed between them she dismisses him,  and crosses the room ��� to tho bedside of  the, patient.  "I liad a .most miserable night," he  says, in answor to her cheerful salutation  ..im inquiry as to how 0he had passed  rho night. "Most miserable. 1 could not  -ietp, arid feel perfectly worn out ���= from  _:y restless tossing." '  "Was your cough, so very trouble-  -ijitip:**" she asks i*i a deeply sj-pathetio  voice, as she lays her soft, cool band'  upon his'burning forehead.  , "Xo, my couah was not nearly so bad  as usual; but 1 could not sloop nor rest,  and I thought the night would never  end," ho says, we.iri'y.'  S'na hastens to bring water, and bathes  ni- feverish face, aud   hot dry   hands in  rhe   refreshing liquid,   with   her   gentle  soothing   touch.     He   looks   at her with  gi-.iiL-ful eyes, and grows strangely quiet.  .She has opened the shutters   and   lowered tlio   window   sash,    letting   ln the  bright morning   sun   and balmy breeze.  1 he air gently stirs tho pale-blue draperies of the window, and tho eastern   light  reveals the frescoed cupids on tho ceiling,  of the room 5u their niost'oxquls'lte tints  She    moves   softly about, putting   tho  room to rights in her gentle,   easy   way.,  The sifk   man's   eyes   follow   her some  moments, aud then he says, almost childlike:--  ."Lam so glad that you are here; you  rest mo, and make mo feel better, while  the.others only tire and fret me."  .*?he comes again to his side, puts fresh,  ccol pillows under his head, and seats  herself'beside bini, and takes his transparent hand in hers. Inn fow moments  he closes his weary eyelids and drops off  into a peaceful slumber, and- the forenoon is half spent beforo'he .awakes.  . The patient nurse has not changed hor  position, for fear of disturbing tho sleeper; but as the clock i.s striking the hour  of nine, the sick rami awakes with, a  start and cry, and his hot fingers close  convulsively upon the soft moist ones of  his nurse.  "Oh, Isibol! Isabel 1 my beloved!. , I  knew that if I came back to your own  room"at home, love, you would return  to me. . You havo conie:���you have come I  ���nut I shall not let you .go from .im  ������gain, my life. c,my love." .His ham.  .lightens about hor own, and she springe  up her face growing pale with alarm.  Uoopens hiseyos wide and stares at her  in a dazed, frightened manner, then hi.**  elasp on her hand loosens and falls away.  , "You havo lieen dreaming," says the  nurse, as she hastens to administer bis  sedative modioine. 'JUid you hav�� �����  good sleep?" sli2 inquires, soothingly, aT-  ho swallows,the drug.  "Yes,-" stijl looking at her in bewilderment. "Who.are you?" ho demands.  "I? Why, I sin. the nurso, Slr.s.

Oh, no. you do not look in  the least like her, hut still yotir presence  brings her up so vividly beforo hie." lie  murmur-*) something moro that the  nurse's ear does not catch, and sinks into,  an uneasy slumber.'  "Oh, Isabel! turn away your eyes;   do  not reproach   me!    Why    need   you care  now?" he mutters in his uneasy, slumber.  Then, in a louder voice,    and   clenching  his hand    "S   he   speaks: "Raphael   St  Clair, I will shoot you like a   dog if you  cross my pathway. '  At -this   tho nurst  shulders,   and   thankfully   receives   thi  announcement now made hy tho footman  that Dr. Hamilton has just arrived.  "Show thri doctor- in immediately,"  she says to tha waiting footman, and  then she keeps iu tho shadowy part of  tho room while tho doctor is examining  hia patient.    Whon   be   has   finished hi3  Patiently   and   tenderly,  watches the whole   day    by  of the suffering man, nnd even when the  hour eonu-.s for hor to retire,    ho looks at  her with appe-;i-*g eyes,   and holds    her  hand, lo'tii   io givo her up.  Tho next day he is brighter, talks  more, and much of his .restlessness has  disappeared. .Still he talks uneas-ily in  his sltep, and whim Mrs. Evans bonds  her head over him to try to catch the  words of his iow muttering--*, she hears  disconnected fiisiitPiiei-s about his dead  wifo, the estate, and Raphael St. Clair.'  Then he start"? up wildly, with cold  drop**'of perspiration standing upou his  ' white blue-veined brow.  Shu soothes him into quiet, and stands  rubbing his hand between lier own. liis  eyes, full of anguish, look up at her, and  ha exclaims:��� '  "Oh, whither shall I fly for .peace,  peace, peace. Will it never come but with  death?" '  "Como unto me all ya who are weary  Find heavy laden, and I ��� will give you  rest." It Is tho sweet voice of tho nurse,  low and distinct, quoting tho. divinr  promise so full of hope for earth's weary  p-lgrima.  The sickinan turn his face impatiently  away, and withdraws his hand with a  fretful gesture. ,  ."Don't talk religious cant to me," he  says, peevishly. ,       ���   ���  "Shall I sing to you?" sho says," patiently, ' or read aloud?"  "Sing if you c will, but ��� do not read;  reading wearies me," he answers.  She draws ls-ar chair a little closer to  his side, and again*, takes'his hand in  hers. Listen I tho low. intensely sweet  voice is floating through tho room:���  "Oh, don't'you romomber,   sweet Alice,  ���   Hen Bolt? <   '  Sweet Alice, whose hair was so brown?  She wept   with delight when   you   gave  her a smile, ,   ��� ���"   <*''  And trembled with fear at your frown.  ln tho valley,  "In the old    church-yard  lien Holt,  In a corner ohscuro and alone,  They have fitted a.--lab of granite so gray,  And sweet Alico lies under the stone."  Ho had laid perfectly still, and as the  last words of tho' sweet old soiuf: \s'Ul-  their melodious cadences, die away, she  sees the tears steal from beneath the  closed eyelids, and drop one" by one upon  the white pillow. , ,  The days have gone by until nearly a  week of Htden's patient administration  to the dying man has flown.  "Who are you, Mrs. Evans?" lie says  to her, abruptly one day, as sho sits by  his side,  "I am your mirs-?," sho answers, with  a gentle smile. ' "  "And thank God for su-jli a nurse!"  he returns, fervently. "Hut you are no  common n-irse, of this I am certain."  Won't you tell me something of your history?"  "It would only weary you," sho replies, gently. "It is enough for you ro  know that I am your; nurse and tliat 1  shall remain with you as long as yon  need me."  "Tell me are all sick, people so haunted  by terrors as I am?" he asks suddenly.  "What is it that troubles your mind  so?" sho asks, evading his question.  "Of that I cannot tell you,'' he replies, sadly.  "Would you like to see a minister?  Shall I send for 2ilr. White?" sho asks.  "Xo, no," impatiently. * ''What good  can a minister dome? He might console  some childish old woman who has done  nothing to bo forgiven. Nothing can  comfort, mo on earth or in heaven." A  violent fit of coughing comes on, and  when it has parsed,' be lays back upon  the pillow; panting and exhausted.  The nurso effjt-s him his medicine, but  he waves it aside, and says,    fretfully:���  "Don't givo me that vile stuff*.  It dors  mo no good; only puts me to sloe;) to  be  haunted by terrors.

The beautiful Hotel  Manitoba, .erected at a cost of half a  n?i.lion dollars, and all its effects are  now a complete loss. 'The Northern Pacific depot is in conjunction with the  hotel, and it, too, is lost. The hotel  was owned by tho Northern Pacific  railroad.  At five   minutes after twelve   last  night, Fred E.

Curlers   from   all parts  of  Manitoba, from  St.   Paul, Duluth and  from Lindsay, were   everywhere   scattered through the crowds,' clad in most  picturesque dishabille.    One gentleman  from St. Paul had ( no   coat or  hat; ,a '  second had no overcoat, and a, third un-1'  fortunate was   seen   going   around  iu  pyjamas  slippers   unci   a   nightshirt.   ���  This gentleman  subsequently  was enabled, by the kindness of friends, to add  to his s'cauty wardrobe a pair of rubbers  and a raccoon coat.  At twenty minutes after one o'clock  the. flumes   broke   through  (he roof of  the east wing, and fo  those on the outside tho scene was wierdly graud.   Tho  flames shot out into the cold, frosty air  as though eager to  mount still higher,    '-  and nt the same time  they insidiously  worked   towards  the west, ou  the pro-"  tection of which  depended   the  saving  of even  a remnant of   the ��� hotel.    As  soon as this became  known those, who  hoping ��� to   the   last,    had  kept  their '  effects piled  in   heaps  in the rotunda,  , abandoned- all   hope and a "wild retreat r  was at, once commenced.    Elderly gentlemen were seen running briskly along  with cheap  lithographs in their hands,  while valuable   bundles -were  left  unheeded in the general confusion.  '   Every one was uow ordered  to*, leave  the hotel, aud the magnificent spectacle  of  ��500,000  going   up  in smoke was1 '  ���  viewed by a throng   of   at   least two  thousand spectators, who braved   forty-  degrees   below zero  to  witness so unusual a sight.  HOW,THE' FIRE  STARTED.  The   fire   broke  out   in, the dining  room, catching   a  light from  a spark  from the large opeu fireplace at the east  eud ot  that wing.    It  spread   rapidly  and   by tbe time the  firemen  reached  the spot, it. had   broken  into the bedrooms above the   dining  room  and  on  the third floor.    At this stage the presence of the : fire  was. indicated in the  rotunda and main   corridor   by  steam  with but little smoke.    Soon, however,  a reflection of  flame could be  seen'on  the white snow-covered  roof of   the N.  P. station, and   from o tho  windows of  tho  southern wing tbo  flames could be  seen pouring out of the two most westerly wiudows on the third floor.    Firemen were stationed on   the fire-escapes  that'ran up the east  end of the building am1 a few well  directed streams, of  water i oou drove the  flames  back, and  in a few minutes where flames had been  a   moment   before smoking ��� blackness  ouly remained.  The building destroyed was acknowledged by travellers to bo one of tho  finest in Canada. Tt was "erected in  1801 under the supervision of Mr. John  Woodman,   C.   K,  Messrs.    Ilourko  & ,  Cass, of this city, wero tho contractors.  Its   frontage   was   2H!   feet   on Main  street and   21.2   feet   on   water street.  The archi teed was Mr. C. E. Joy of St.,  Paul; aiid it.-was formally'opened with      .   ���  a grand ball.on'-'January J, I8fi2..   The  hotel   was   built   and   owned  by  the  Northern Pacific Railway company.   It  was  a seven  story   building, with ac-',.  commodation for over   300  guests.    It  was built of   St. Louis   pressed   brick,  with handspmo redstone facings.   ,   .  The heaviest looser of all is probably  the J. E. Ellis Co.,-of Toronto, it beiug  estimated that ��00,000 will not cover  the.amount'which they havo lost. Mr.  J..F. Ellis, one of tho firm, had in  room 410, probably $*JO,O0O worth of  -diamonds, and Mr. Fred Westhern, it  representative of ' the company, had  nearly $20,000 worth of jewelry, all of  which is a complete loss.

As  I grew older these spells became more  frequent, lasted longer, and left me with  less vitality.   I was weak, had no strengt h  or stamina, always very low-spirited arid  down-hearted; imagined that everything  and every person was going against me,  and life only had a dark sidetfor me.   My  appetite was poor most of the time, but I  am now happy to say tbat, since taking  Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve Tills, I have-  only had one fainting spell, shortly after  I   began - taking*   them,   so   I  have  no  J?e.sitation' in   saying   that   Dr.   Ward's  "Pills   cured  me.

Mr. aud  Mrs. Roberts reside at ;34 Wolfe  street,. Montreal, and  the  reporter was   cordially  welcomed  when he -went to enquire as rotl-e truth  of   the report  that   Mrs. Roberts  liad  been restored to health through the use  of Dr. Williams'Pink Pills/  'Mr.'and  Mrs.   Roberts   came   to  Canada,  from  Euglaud a littlo  more than five years  a��o, and   Mrs. Roberts'   illness began  while still in the Old Country.   "I was  really   tho victim of a combination of  troubles."' says   Mrs.   Roberts.    "For  seven years, neuralgia, with all  its excruciating pains, has  been, my almost  constant attendant.'    Added  to   this -1  was   at lacked" ,with   rheumatism  and  palpitation  of   tho heart,   and for the  last five Years, was not able ' to get out  of doors   during   tho winter   mouths.  .Sometimes  I felt tis  though those terrible pains iu my head would drive me  mad ; my nerves were all unstrung and  a knock at   tlio  door would  Fend me  nearly crazy.    I was treated  at different times bj' four  doctor**! since coming  to Montreal, but without   any lusting  good, aud  I had given up hope of ever  being better on^this  side of   rhe grave.  A friend of miue whose father had been  helpless for two'years, but was restored  by Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills, urged me  to  try  them.    My   husband asked'the  doctor who was attending me what he  thought of them, and the doctor replied  that he  believed  them  to   be  a good  medicine.* This pursuaded ' me  to bo-  cm their use.    JN"o one* who sees me  now can form any idea of my condition  when I  began  taking   Dr.   Williams'  Pink Pills,** and I  had only taken three  boxes when  I began  to  recover.    But  seven years  of   pain had nearly shattered my  constitution   and  I did   not  look .for  a speedy recovery, and I was  more than gratified to find' that after  I  had used I, think about a dozen and a  half 'boxes,   I was   fully   restore!   to  health.    If, seemed all   the more wonderful because the doctors both in England and here never   done more than  give, me  temporary   relief,   and their  treatment was  much   more expensive.  The past summer was tbe  first ia years  that I really enjoyed, life, aud I was  able to go on a visit to Radnor Forges.  Dr.   Williams'  Pink   Pills   have also  been of much benefit to   my, daughter  Violet.

"While visiting at Radnor Forges, I  urged a young lady friend who has  'long been a sufferer from curvature of  the spine, and obstinate consipation to  try them;and they have done her a'vast  amount, of good."  The reporter confesses that Mrs. Roberts' story is,a wonderful one. That she  is  now  thoroughly well is  clear from  her   face, her  manner and her  happy  spirit    Mr. and   Mrs. Roberts  are intelligent   and    reliable    people.

Gem-  mill, barrister of this city, has a some-  .wliat unusual request to prefer to the  railway committee of the Privy Council when it meets next week. In thc  Act granting the subsidy to the Crow's  Nest Pass railway the following clause  was inserted;  "The railway committee of the Privy  council may grant running powers over  the said line of railway and all branches  and connections, or any portions  thereof, and all lines of railway now  or hereafter owned or leased by or  operated on account of the company  in British Columbia south of the'company's main line  of  railway, and   the  necessary   use of   its   tracks, .stations I was the early autumn of 1781; while  and station grounds, to any other rail-   the characters were a young captain of  "To the king."  "To my king."  Tbe toasts, though Blig-htly different,  were uttered sinjtiltaneously'and a smul 1  glass of raft) did }**0rt was emptied in  honor of each. .'The peene was the  broad, veranda of a South Carolina  plantation, not fifteen miles from the  famous city of   Charleston; the  time  .way  company   applying   for   such  a  grant upon such* terms as  such   com--  *' mittee  may   fix  and   determine, and  'according   to  the   provisions   of   the  Railway Act/and ol  such  other  general Act's relating   to  railways  as   aro  from time to   time passed   bv parliament, hut nothing herein shall be held  to imply that   such   running  powers  might no,t be so granted   without  the  special provision herein contained."  ,  '" A charter exists . at   present   for   a  railway from Bonnors   .Ferry 'to 'Kus-  konook.   If   the   railway   committee  grants  permission   under  the  foregoing clause for   the  Nelson  and  BkI-  lington railway tci run   over a   portion'  ofthe   Crow's   Nest   railway,   it   will  avoid the necessity *of duplicating  1,0  miles of the road.  The railway committee of the Privy  council n-ill be given'the opportunity  of putting to  a   test   the   potency  of  this   clause ��� "of   the   charter.    If  tlie  members of Ihat   astute  body   adhere  strictly to (he wording  of  this clause  there is  little doubt but.  the Nelson  and Bedlingtou will be granted the requested ..privilege,      But  should   this  privilege be refused it will demonstrate  the invalidity of   the  article, and   the  inability of the liberal   government   to  copo with the forces of   the'C.

'  During thc month of February 370  tons of ore, of a total value of $27,010,  was shipped from Moyie to thc smelter,  and during the balance of the .year  the output promises to be of much  larger tonnage. Aside from Fernie,  Moyie is now, and will continue to be.  the heaviest shipping point on the entire line of the Crow's Nest rot?d.

Yot to uatisfy.a petty spite Moyie has  neither been giveu a siding or station,  HOT does the name of the , ton-i* appear  on ti single map or time card of the  com pan3''.  We have seen towns and cities  boomed far beyond their natural re-  ttources, and collapse, and their property decline and their business men  bankrupt, but such cannot be the f-ite  of .Moyie. Moyie can grow with thc  expansion of her mineral output, and  her mineral resources are almost without limit. All that ia needed is development. -���'       X A ���'  ..The movement on foot to organize  a board of trade m Mo>ie is. ti Step' .in  the right direction,* The affairs, of the  town can be handled with, better satisfaction to the people generally by a  regularly organized board, picked  from the various branches of businesses of the town, than by individual  efforts.  his majesty's artillery, a portion of  which waa guarding the city of Charleston, and a young*, woman in perhaps her  twenty-second year. A famous beauty  was this Miss Phoebe Poindexter, and a  most captivating picture she made, in  the eyes of the captain of artillery, as  she sat thrumming the kejrs of her  harpsichord, after replacing the empty  ������vine glass on the table near her. The'  latter was a handsome young man, apparently thirty, years of age, with a  Xierfect air of good breeding and evidently of some graces, for he had just  finished a'solo on .the flute to the accompaniment of the young lady.  "The fact is, 'Mies Phoebe, I hardly  know what 1 should do with myself,  -were it not for the p-Ss'sibility of riding  out here to spend on occasional afternoon with you���or should I say, both  in gallantry ancl truth, every afternoon with you?. The town is simply  too dull for a soldier, now that Lord  Cornwallis has taken the major part of  our army with him in'his chase after  the rebel Greene."  "And what do you think, captain, are  his chances of capturing1 Gen-Greene?"  "Oh,  the chalices tire   perfect,   my  dear lady.   Why* the rebels were absolutely  routed- sGcdfding to   our   dispatches, at the battle tif Guilford Court  House, and so badly demoralized that'  they ran front thfe field like sheep.   Indeed the'f e waa no necessity for our pursuit.   Greerie is starving up there in the  mountains of N&rth Carolina and will  surrender at disgrfetidn in the course of  a wee"k or two-   EOS' defeat and reduced  circumstances will be the excuse, but  the real reason will be British gold. Yon  remember, of course, our success with  their Gen. Arnold.   Well, after a man's  ambition has been killed,- he will not  fight in .any cause with neither food  nor pay.   And that is the dire extremity to which Greene has been forced by  the glorious success -of his majesty's  arms.   My Lord Cornwallis has turned  north and in a month will havedefeated  and captured that little hoy of a Frenchman, La Fayette.    With their armies  of the south and of the center defeated,  he Will move next spring upon the only  remaining armies of the rebels; that  under the miscreant Washington.    It  will be a short campaign, a battle, _  i- i'h* | -rout, a pursuit and then  peace���-and  gPii- ��� witli  peace  will come   its   delightful  ' handmaiden love.    And  then ��� then,  Mistress Poindexter, I shall have the  honor of claiming you for a bride,* of  Helling out my commission and living  the  quiet life of an English country  gentleman for- I hope; the rest of iny  life."  "A charming arrangement of events  for yourself,* iny Qeai* Capt. Webb!

Greene, they  say that he is not only harassing Gen.

"On what utter nonsense do these  misguided colonists feed their despairing h��pes!" answered the captain.  "Why, it would be no more ridiculous  ; fqr you to assure me that, a detachment  of Marion's outlaws were here;, surrounding this very house, and that I  was in danger of becoming it pi-isgner  td them, as to���what was that?" .The  captain jumped htirriedly from his seat  and, grasping the railing of the ycran-  or  Winnipeg ,Free Preas: It afedms  pret'.y hard that the overalls worn by  members of the labor unions should  be manufactured by girls who are .under paid and over worked,  SCRIBE   FOP THE  LEADEii.  da in front of him for support; looked < ���    *, _ ��� __. vun *.' to    ,.  anxiously up and down .the road thfct f m& ^^t^Vt^A i,- "Y  ran in front of the old plantation, ..       i^���     ^^l^ g *om^s &P*ri-  "If* seemed to ine like the winding i     l'>nu-*AA-d���hZi:xzQZSi!li'' '���'- 'r^������'��� ���'���4--L ,',  ot a horn," said the lady, calmly.        ?

"You can tell them that there is no  one concealed in your house. He will  never dare to doubt your word."  "You would have me tell a lie to save  you���me, the woman you pretended to  love and wish to make your wife ?"  "It is a case of necessity���quick, they  are approaching on both sides.

' "I shall tell them nothing but the absolute truth���be quick."  "Then there is but one place where  I will be safe," answered the "captain,  "and there only if ,he be a gentleman."  Saying which, the captain darted up  the" stairs and entered Miss Poindex-  ter's own chamber. (        <  He had no more than closed the door  when a lithe, athletic young officer in  the1' partisan cavalry leaped over the  railing of the veranda and stood, embarrassed and hat in hand, bowing be1  fore the young mistress of the mansion.        '     '  ,   "Phoebe!" exclaimed the young soldier.  "'Would it' not-be better to address  me as your prisoner?" answered' Miss  Poindexter. "If lam not mistaken, you  have surrounded iny home with armed  soldiers and. have come yourself on no  gentle errand."  '/Prisoner Phoebe?" answered the patriot captain. "I would never wish to  hold you prisoner, save in the bonds of  love. My presence here needs an explanation and I will make it. I have received information that an English officer Is visiting you this afternoon. . It  is a matter of duty. I have been ordered far in advance of the returning  troops of Marion and Sumter for the express pur-pose of ^catching some ofthe  officers at the garrison at Charleston  off their guard; and I expect to appear  at the very' gates of that city before I  am done and let them know that, far  from being defeated, as they suppose,  Gen. Greene's army has driven their red  coats from the Carolinas and is chasing  Cornwallis himself to'the sea."  "What a romance!" laughed the  young lady.  "I'wish I had time for romance," said  the officer; "there could be no more delightful opportunity." Only when this  war is,over will I be able to ask you to  reward a love that has been faithful  to you ever since we were children.  But to duty. Are you harboring an  English  officer   here?''  "Why, of course I am," she answered,,  laughingly..-".-.       =^---  "This is  no time for joking," said"  the captain.   "If he is not here, he cannot have been gone a'very long time;  and if you delay me he may yet get  within the gates of Charleston."  "It seems to me that you are a trifle  difficult to-day," she replied. "Do you  not believe  me?"  "Of course," he said, biting his lips  nervously.- "I shall have to search the  house," he continued. ,* ,  "O, we are quite used to it," she answered.  He ordered up his men and began a  systematic search of the mansion and  surrounding buildings. He himself,  however, stood immovably in front of  the door that he knew opened into her  private apartments, and permitted no  one to enter. The search was therefore  useless..  "Well," said she, teasingiy, "why do  you not enter my own room?"  "If he is an offitier he fchould be agen-��  tleman, and could'not be there," answered the captain. "You have been  fooling me, Phoebe, in order to give him  a start. I do not blame you. He was  a guest, and you have but observed the  laws of hospitality, even though he is  an enemy to our country.- Farewell-  remember always I shall come to you  when this war is finished."  ."Why not come before^���to-night?  You will not wish td camp nearer  Charleston than this, lam sure. Grandmother, who is'in town to-day- shopping, will be hack by tea time* and you  can tell hs all the he'ws';"  "And may I tell ydli something else?"  "Yes-���"withStit _veii_ waiting for the  war id -sad: Aiid i wiil tell you something; tod." The young patriot turned  about for a mfainent^ancl for a kiss.  Then springing' iii id the saddle He shouted the commaridi ^''To horse, the road  to Charleston-^gailc-p!" and was off;  As soon as he and his men were well  out of sight, the English artillery captain made his appearance.
