I).  '  Auditor,  WM. McCABK,  Managing Director.  Some of  the' leading  features of'the  year's    business,   as mentioned   by   tho  President, were �� he following :  (1) Looking at tlie Company from every  standpoint, the report submitted shows  financial strength, productive assets, solid  growth and large relative surplus, which  is the supreme point to policy-holders, as  i*i is from this source alone thav satisfactory returns can be made to them. ���  (2) The new business, for .the year exceeded, that of any previous year.  (8) Another marked fea'turo of this  Company is the relative large amount" of  its net surplus to liabilities, when contrasted with that of its leading competitors.. The President showed that this ratio  was one of tlie best tests by which to  judge of the relative merits of tbe different Companies  (4) The following- mari:~2 Increases  were made during tho year:  Percent  In Premium Income , 11.68  In Interest Income 13.11  in Insurance in force _ 13.15  rn Assets '. 10.01  In Net Surplus..'. 10.73  In Insurance Reserve 15.18  The President stated that gentlemen  representing the United States Insurance  Departments had been in the city durizig  part of last month, and had. made ,a  thorough and most searching investigation into tiie affairs of the Company,  with a view to its admission to do ousi-  ness in their respective States, and that  these experts were extremely well satisfied  with the soundness of the Company, and  expressed, themselves as gratified with  every aspect of affairs.  , The Hon. Mr, Allan. In seconding the  adoption of the report, called especial attention to the excellent character of the  Investments of tho Company; of these  ovor 37 per cent, are in first mortgage  securities, nearly 20 per cent, in debentures, nearly 14 per cent, in stocks and  bonds, loans on policies about 61-2 per  .cent., the balance consisting of cash in  banks, interest accrued, etc.  He also called s]>ecial attention to the  fact that although the assets,had increased very largely, the outstanding and accrued interest had been very materially  decreased, wliioh is a proof of the excellent cliaracter ot tho investments of the  Company, and the promptness with  which the Interest tlxereon has been paid.  James Thorburn, M. D., Medical Director, presented a. full and interesting report of tho mortality experience of the  Company from its organization, which  showed that great care liad been exercised  in the selection of the Company's business.  ��� The Consulting Actuary reported  that  ho had made an Independent examination  of tho affairs of the Company as  at  Dec.  31st, 189S, bavins:  examined   tho  books,  accounts and balance sheet, also a detailed copy of the annnal report   to  the Insurance Department, and stated   that he  was very much gratified with   the  result  of such examination, also with the thorough system of the ��ork of every department  throughout  tho  office.     He  commended   the  Company   for    closing its  books promptly at the end of the year, as  had been its custom  from  organization,  and   stated  tliat,   notwithstanding    the  large amount paid to policy-holders  during the  year,   another  suostantial  gain  had been made in tho net surplus,   now  amounting to $-174,029.OS, or if  made up  on tho same basis as that generally .used,  viz., by adding  the  difference  between  tho cost and market value of dobentures,  etc., owned by tho  Company,   such  surplus would be ?o22,tj<34.S3.   He referred to  the great difficulty whicli had been experienced of late years i n  securing satisfactory investments,   and  pointed  out  tho  great decline in tho rate of interest which  gilt-edge securities yielded.     In viow of  this ho stated that the settlement of tho  Company's Investment Policies should be  higlily satisfactory to the holders thereof,  as they compare favorably with  those  of  the leading and best managed companies  on this continent. '  A speoial  vote  of thanks  was nnnni-j  inously tendered to the   Company's   Pro-!  vinolnl Managors, Inspectors and Agency  !

It is surprising to J earn from the  highest, medical authority in England  that laughter may be injurious.  '.���/. Laughter in itself, says tho 'British  Medical.-Journal, cannot very well kill,  but it may do harm. Hysterical- girls  and boys with kindred nervous affections are often given to immoderate  laughter, which tends to increase nerv- j  ous exhaustion. '   ' '   j  Dr. Feilchenfeld relates an instrnc-1  tive case in which a little girl suffered [  from very definite cardiac symptoms'  after immoderate laughter. Tho patient f  was 13 yoars old and had previously \  been free from any sign of heart dis- ;  ease. After laughing on and oft' for!  nearly an Jiour with some comnuuions  she suddenly folfc stabbing pains iu the  chest and was seized with fits of coughing, followed by cardiac dyspncoa,' very  well marked. Feilohenfeld" believes that  the cardiac disease directly resulted  from immoderate laughing,      ;  Pc-opI*: who sutler from any disease or  disorder of the heart nervous system,  such as Palpitation, Skip Beats, Smothering or Sinking:Sensations, Sleeplessness,  Weakness, Pain in tbe Head, etc., cannot a fiord to waste time trying various  remedies, which have nothing more to  back up their claims than the bold assertions of their proprietors.  These diseases are too serious to permit of your experimenting with untried  remedies. When you buy Milburn's  Heart and Nerve Pills, you know you  have behind them the testimony of thous-  -inds of Canadians who have been cured  by their use. One of these is Mrs. A.  "YvY Irish, 92 Queen Street, Kingston,  Out., who writes as follows :  "I, have suffered for someyears with  a smothering sensation caused by heart  disease. The severity, of the pains in  my heart caused me much suffering-. I  was also very nervous, and my, whole  j   system was run down and debilitated.  " Hearing of Milburn's Heart and  Nerve Pills being a specific for these  trouble's, I thought I would try them, and  therefore got a box at McLeod's Drug-  Store.. ,   .���  " They afforded me great relief, having-  toned up my system' and removed the  distressing symptoms from which I suffered. I can heartily recommend these  wonderful pills to all sufferers from  heart trouble."  ^-3--ft. i .w.ij->^--.-.si  ��s'  C��  Nothing" like H.B.B: for healing-  sores and ulcers, no matter how  large or how chronic they may be,  B.

The   gallant  Colonel is nut only of   the  opinion   of  the foregoing statement, hut  is  absolutely   certain    of   it.

For a moment I  was  seemingly fascinated by tlie uncanny vision, but in another instant all  sense of possible superstition vanished,  .as  I saw the bushes move and heard  dead twigs lying ou the ground craclt  as if under the foot of some heavy animal treading on    tJiem.    With,   bated  breath,   I  saw   a   monstrous   eougar  stealthil}' crawl out of the, tangled mass  of brushwood in a crouching attitude,  its tail slowly oscillating, as does tliajtpf  the  domestic cat   when   watching    a  rnouschole.  The beast evidently ��hen sa*v me for  the firjst'time, and, as is natural with the  species, ins,tinc]tiyjjiy drew back, as if to  fly from the presence of man. It was'  my handsome mare the cougar coveted,  bur,, seeing hie, it deferred the fatal  spring it liad contemplated at the moment its eyes first me.c- mine.  I soothed "Petaluma as be9t I could,  but her trembling was not intho least  abated, though she rubbed her nose  against my eo.a.t sleeve, as was lier wont  when I caressed lier. She seemed a little more passive���that is, she did not  attempt those frantic jumps in her efforts to got awa}- that at first characterized her terrible friglit when she  smelled tho.'cougar, or by some instinct  became, aware of its proximity.  Wnat I had to'do, and do quickly, was  to get away from there as soon as possi-  i ble,  for I did not know how soon the  ferocious brute, pearly famished with ]  hunger, maybe, rnighf raake'an effort-to  fasten its liorridelaw^'Jnlo the flanks of  my marc, ignoring my presence entirely.

Libby News : The metal market is  experiencing an almost unprecedented  boom. Copper is being quoted from  day to day at eighteen cents and upwards, while lead, is hovering about  the $4.50 mark. The price is an  open market, price for, both metals,  and is caused simply by the increased  demand. These conditions seem to  presage.an unexampled boom in the  mining industry and really mirituous  propositions will be able to command  attention from the investing public  during the coming season, and the  undeveloped camps, vvhicb have' sur-  viver the hard times on their merits-  will get the benefit of it.  The Western' Mining World pertinently says that the biggest mistake a  mining company can make is to suppose that because a  man   is "sharp"  or n "good fellow," or has made a sue-  ceh-v ;it something else, that he can  run a mine.  i a \\ ild  i country, and I was never cured of the  fault. I reached th? foot of fho. first  "zig-zag," at tbe west side of the valley, where it juts against the ra.nge of  mountain's about sundown, and, lx>-  fore essaying the ascent, dismounted  and cinched my saddle.  In a little more 'than'three hours I  reached the summit, making frequent  halts to wind my animal, for she hod  labored heavily in struggling up tlie  grade. '.'������ ;',  When _ I started on again, after resting 20 or 30 minutes, the moon,which  was at its full, now appeared at the  verge of the horizon, way below me at  the lower end of the valley, and began  to light up the trail on the summit of  the range, so that in the clear, cloudless sky objects were a~s distinctly visible as at-noonday, though the atmosphere and all nature seemed- tinged  ���with a silver sheen.  The trail on the summit of the. range  ran over a narrow.tableland for .several'  miles, and then entered the deep pine  arid cedar forest at. the other extremity  of the chain of great hills over which I  was going.    A ride of 12 miles further  from me, she made a bolt down the  trail that nearly threw me over her  head,' at the same instant seeming to  shrink convulsively in o. frantic effort to  look behind lier.  I sj-mpathct'icalJy turned my Iieaci  around and gazed at the bare Iiilltop  this side of the blasted cedars, and. to  my horror, saw t.hoso great green ayes I  but- a few rods behind me, following  ruy trail with a sort of crouching,  crawling motion, all ready, evidently,  to spring the moment it had covered  the. right distance.  When .1 noticed that the cougar wa.s  crawling in its crouching attitude behind me I had presence of mind enough  to think that if I reined my liorse and  made her walk, it would impress the  cougar with tlie. fact that I w as there  as well as the unhmil it wanted to devour for its late supper. I could thwart  itadesigus.as I feltconfident that where  I had Jirstseen thecougar,'in a.na.rrow  vallej', surrounded by lofty mountains^  heavily timbered, the government Jiad  erected a blockhouse1 and a corral, iri  wlneli were herded a number of horses  ami mules, to be used as relays between  five military ]>osts.  I hoped that 1 sliould be able to make  that jx>int in about two hours from fho  cluster of cedars, but. now that the cougar hod enteral a.s a factor in my cal-  culations, I did not Jcnow whether I  should reach the blockhouse at all, or  maybe only on foot, with my beautiful  mare's bones left on. the trail, picked  clean by the vicious beast that was following- me.  True to its instincts, it was really  afraid of me. I succeeded with great  difficulty, however, in coaxing my  mare into n, slow walk, the effect of  which resulted as I surmised it would.  The. cougar ceased at once its fearful  bounds, and settled down into a shambling- wort of gait, dropping further behind me at the moment.  Desirous of knowing for a certainty  whether my tactics were the sudden  cause of the creature's abrupt ehnngi- of  movement, I allowed Petaluma. to  break into a quick lojx\ and the instant  the Jiuge cat noticed tlie mare's renewed effort to get away, it commenced its former notion. I then  slackened my go.it, and to my intense  satisfaction the cougar once more  lagged behind, renewing its slow movements, aud seemed to be now watchr  ing the rider closer than itdid tho mare.  I did not again dare to let Petaluma,  go any faster than a. walk, arid during  the w-holc 12 miles to the blockhouse,  as long as I maintained that slow gait;  the cougar did hot try to spring toward  us. ',.'.' ' ���'������'���  ��� After continuing in that tiresome  manner-for about four hours, I at lusst  entered the little valley, and just as I  rode out of the lieavy timber into the  bright moonlight, the terrible'' beast  gave one awful roar and turned back  into the forest, a sad amd disappointed  cougar.  I. changed animals at the blockhouse1  and rode on to tlie river without further adventure, happy in, ha.ving saved  PHILIP CONKAD, -Puop.  Dry G-oods,  Groceries,  Hardware.  GOOD WOI.JC.
