This is not mere speculation^ but a' result of an aptual houi«e tQ house can-
vas which was ir|adq this week by a
committee composed of   W. L.  K*eid,
Vio Desaulnier and A. P. JCacdonald,
This number includes those residing
at the St, Eugene and Aurora 'mines
and sit Parjcj jUitclibll & Go's, sawmill.
In view of'- th-o, tit^o at which' the
count was mado, this ia a good showing for Moyio. Tbe plosing down of
tho St. Eq'gebe mino caused thp laying off of at least 150 men, and qiqst
of those were out, of town when the
count was mado.       -

Will give employment to between 75

and sawmill meu, and   inspected   the
big timber limits   ou tlie north side of
.the upper lake with a view to securing
the same and   erecting   a   mill cnear
town.    The.v    estimate  that  there is
nearly oue hundred  and   twenty  five
million feet of  first   class   timber   in
this tract.    Tlie erecting  of  a  $7,000
dawniill near town is   now  almost   an
absolute certainty.,

Did you ever notice that there is no
blue food? We eat things green and led,
yellow and violet—flesh,,fish or plums in
all the colors of the rainbow except blue.
Many deadly poison-- are blue in color,
such as bluestoue or the deadly, nightshade, flower. The color stands in our
slang for everything ini-*crublc and depressing.' But this is only one of n thousand queer facts about colors.
Heat a bar of iron, and the particles
of the metal nre set in motion, shaking
violently one against another. Presently,
the surroundiug ether is set in motion iu
large, slow waves, rollingihrough the".air
like the waves of the sea until they brc-il:
upon our /-.kin and give us the .sensa-.i-iu
of heat. ,As tbe iron gets hotter other
waves are set in motion in immense nuni-
,'bers, traveling at more than, lightning
speed, and these break upon the eye. giving the sensation of red light. ■
The redhot()iron. getting still more heated, throws out oilier sets of waves .slid
smaller and more rapid—orange, yellow,
green,- blue, indigo,' violet—all the culms
of tbe rainbow. The eye cannot tell one
from another. The wl «-!e bundle of rays
mixed up gives us an'iinpro.s.*-ion of white.
Tbat is the glow from (he "white hoi"
iron, and such is the light from the sti|!
greater bright neh.s <if the sun. Sun tight
is.a bundle of rays of light—red, orang:-,
yellow^ green, blue, indigo and violet all
mixed together. "The mixture of all <ol-
ora is, white light; (he absence of all colors is utter'darkness.
Now, pass a ray of sunlight through a
drop of water, and the colored rays are
split up aud thrown in different directions. The sunlight shining througli^many
drops of falling rain after a shower is all

There are ninny ctirio'tis things about
X rays which seem to puzzle even the
scientists. Signor Briguiti. who lias
been making experiments with them nl
"itoiue', says tbat tbe visibility of a sub'
staiice to-tlie eye Is no criterion'of its
visibility,to tbe X rays. Tbe rays cannot see through glass, which I.s tntns
parent to tbe eye. whereas aluminium,
which is opaque to I he'eye. Is transput-
ent to tbe X rays. Tbe rays can see a
-splinter of glass in tbe band, but not a
splinter of wood. Most inks are transparent to tbe rays, Including printer's
Ink, but some of them are opaque. Tbe
rays can see through a postoflice directory, but if a paper with words written
on it be put in tbe middle of the directory tbe rays will reveal these words
and nothing behind tbeni.

How many times have we heard of

Though you may contend that this is
an unnecessarily small point, yet-it is a
fact that most people, when starting out
to cover a short space, a niunbi*i\of*times
do not make their first turn backward
like.a crab.
Invariably do they lake a few steps
forward, and then, turning, retrace them.
Hence tbey go "forth aud back, and,

Few whist players ever think of the
labor and intelligence which are bestowed
upon the backs of the cards with which
tbey pass an evening. It represents an
industry which gives employment to
scores of skillful draftsmen and even artists. No one can tell why. but the public
.demands perpetually now designs on the
backs of playing cards, and every year
sees the issue of probably a thousand
new backs. Tl/^se vary in simplicity
from lines of little stars up to the most
complicated geometrical patterns, ara-
besijiieries and Gothic designs. The designers use a systun**' -which reduces the
amount of their work three-fourths.
They draw inerel;.;," oiic-quartcr of the
back, transfer thafqunrror to the quarter
diagonally opposite and then reverse and
transfer these two quarter's to the two
remaining. The design is usually drawn
upon a large sheet of drawing paper
whicb—i'i—ajiy.whi're from four, to ten
time.*-; the size of the curd. After it is
finished it i.s reduced by a photograver to
the size required.
The advantage of t.iis practice lies in
the suppression of any error or even slip.
A line which is inked too heavily at one
point would look bad if left in its natural
size, but when reduced to one-tenth the
difference is imperceptible to the eye.
The same thing applii*s to geometrical
figures. When drawn, tliey may be a
trilie irregular, but wliru reduced they
appear to be perfect. The best work in
this field is done by book illustrators aud
book cover designers. Soiue of (hem have
been so siu-ces.*-ful in the waking of card
backs, that they attend to nothing else.
A majority ' of the desiirners. however,
take up the calling as ,-i i-el-ixntion or an
additional source of incimie rather than a
regular occupation. Oni'iirtist with more
ingenuity thmi honesty dovii-ed a back
which could be marked by sharpers .in
such a fashion that it could scarcely be
detected by any player who was not in
the secret. This design was exposed a
few months afterward n-Jd the plate destroyed. Never afterward did the manufacturers   give   him    employment.

"Why, yes, I have hopes."

so-honest and truthful that I—I"'—
"That you ought to have asked him

At that minute a cab rattled-up, and

a $2 bill, and I thought it was one when

In this practical age a physician's
ability is riieasurdd by the actual
cures he makes.. Judged by this high
standard,'rDr. Chase stands pre-eminent...'as,, a giant among physicians.'
Take kidney and liver derangements,
for example. Dr. Chase, by means
of his Kidney-Liver pills, hii.s_-broughti
about some of the most surprising,
cures ever, eilccted. This is due to
the direct and Specific action of this
great home treatment on the liver
and kidneys. Here is the experience
of a highly respected resident of Con-
secon,  Oht. :���
Mr. James1 Dellihunt, Consecon,
Prince Edward County, Out., writes:
"For several years I suffered great
tortures of mind, and ., body from
Bright's disease of the kidneys. The
pains were sometimes almost beyond
endurance and extended , from my
head and between the shoulders down
the whole spinal column and seemed
to concentrate across my kidneys.
My back was never entirely free from
pain. When 1 got up in the morning
I could not straighten myself at all,
but would go bent nearly double
most all day.   My water was scanty
and at other times profuse, and it
gave me great pain to urinate.
. "I could do no work, and, though
I tried many kinds of kidney pills,
could get no relief. As a last resort
I was induced by a friend to give Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills a trial. I
felt a change after the first dose. I
used in all about .five boxes, and
they have entirely cured me. I have
no pains now and can do as good a
day's work as I. ever could. It is a
pleasure for me* to recommend Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Tills, as they
have done so.much for me."
• Mr. J. J. Ward, J.P., Consecon, certifies that he has known Mr. Dellihunt for years as a'truthful man and
respected citizen, and vouches for the
truth of the above statement.,

beneficial treatment for the kidneys
and liver than Dr. Chase's, Kidney-

I'm all attention."  1 And this ,ia the tale that he told me.  | I had often seen, the heroine of it (his  wife) passing- to~and fro across ihe back  premises attached to my residence. She  was a pretty young-  Malay,   woman,  age'd about 20 years, with a particularly bright and pleasing manner.  "Tuan knows my wife, Katijali; she  was a. widow when I married her. When  we  were quite email we lived in the  same  village near  Mala-eca,   and    we  played .together,, and I wns very fond of  her.   Then we grew up, and I went to  be ft servant to a European, and her  father married her when she was 14 to  a rich man, who was a cattle dealer and  h4d plenty of money.   He was old, perhaps 40 years of age.   'Tijah could not  care foe him. lie took her away to a  place, on the coast, where he lived with  his brother and sister-in-law, and I did  net see ber 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 hod been  absent or  about thrc-&' weeks,   'Tijah  knew he would soon come again.   Her  heart was &ad, for she always dreaded'  his coming, as she did not love him. He  was old and ugly, very ugly.    He had  only one tooth which hung down over  hie under lip like a tusk, and which  gave    him    a    repulsive    appearance.  v'Tijah   hated    him.     Well,   she   was  sitting  idly  on  the  seashore,  behind  some   rocks,    looking   over   the   sea  and wishing she could get into the koleh  (native boat)  which lay moored close  by, and row across the water to her old  home where she had been so happy,  - "Suddenly she heard steps, and became aware of voices conversing in an  undertone on the other side of the rocks,  which,  projecting  seaward, concealed  her from view, and she recognized that  the persons talking were her brother-  in-law, Tong and his wife.   Sho heard  that-the two were plotting away Slci.  mun'a life-.   Tong said that he had news  that his In-other would come to-morrow,  and that he would have about $200 with  him.    They would kill him, and con-  cc-al his body, but how to accomplish it  without letting 'Tijnh know?   At the  mention oi her name, she betrayed her  presence- by a low cry.   In a second the  two wore upon her asking her what she  did there,: and whether she.had heard  what, they had said.    Terrified of the  wretches, she gasped pu t that she was  Bleeping,and their voices startled her,  but that the knew nothing of what'they  had   been   saying.     Tong grasped her  by the shoulders and told" her if she  was"speaking, tiie truth it"waa well for  her; but if not, she had better keep her  mouth shut,  or he  would  b'lajar  (it  threat)*   Then they let her go.  "The next uay Sleiman arrived and  was greeted with effusion by his relatives. 'Tijah trembled and was silent.  She dared not tell him of the danger he  was in, but .she made up her mind, if  fche...could.gct Hie opportunity,to.warn  hiixi to  take  care.    Till late Sleiman  row ove;- the miles of sea whi^h  lay b-atwee-n her andherpaj-enta5horns  in Halftcoo.   li ww & fr&iJ ��W$U "for-  saisfcyi bat she Mi a\k C6uld4'?ustrfe  ft ajB-oner than to, thc-as   bloodthirsty  oraftturfiB eh? had left behind.   A long  way she rowed, and the next daywhen  the sun got up and scorched her* she  pulled in her paddle a^tfd roiled herself  ,i:a hsr sarong aad lay down in the bot-  toTn. pi the beat and slept.   She   was  aroused by the movement of he? cockle  phell.   It waa  nightj   p.   breeze',' had  sprung up' smd a squall waa   coming;  white crests' tipped the waves'and . a  heavy bank: pf clouds obscured the starlight, and in a few moments a black  pall of darkness enveloped her.   -The  wind struck the fragile craft, whirling  it wildly round, and .before ahe could  seize the paddle to try and steady it, the  boat capsized, and she was flung into  tho angry sea.   She skruefc out bol&W  and swam until her hands touched the  upturned bark, to which she clung, endeavoring to right it.   Poor girl! she  knew,not where she was, how far from  Rhore, how long her strength    would  last,-and whether there was any hope of  succor. ��� '  Ai last the squall passed over and the  ���"vater became comparatively calm, but  the moon had not risen and she* could  see nothing-.   She began to get exhausted and felt that she could not hold on  much longer and would sink and drown  unless  Tuan. Allah took pity on her.  She thought sadly that she was young  todie, and prayed, for help.   A^small  thing as light as a feather touched her  che-ek���a  mosquito,  eo-nt  to  save her  life.    When she heard the sound which  Tuan cursed just now she knew that  land mufet be quite near, for a mosquito  never flies out to sea.   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 daylight dawned had got rid of every trace  of their ill doing." The neighbors inquired what had become of Sleiman and  why he had com�� and gone so suddenly.  " 'Oh,' said Tong, 'he left'hurriedly;  'he took 'Tijah with him and wenta,way  in   tlie  kioeh at daybreak to catch a  steamer which would pass there going I  to Singapore.-  "It was a very mysterious affair, and  no one could make out the truth; but  vvhecu the police had given up all search,  finding they could prove: nothing, quite,  unexpectedly  the  murder was   found  WILDEY LOOSE NO. ���&  .< i   .    -'  '<     .'-���"  ���*?,>   /.'  ���r03ES?lf ^iJTIiKHSTAI-i-i-, pr0p.
