F,M   PINKHAM, Manage?  i  At their meeting last Monday  evening, 'the Liberals were left  everything to themselves. ������ The  Conservatives and the Socialists  did not deem it necessary to have  any spellbinders on hand to refute any of the argument advanced. J. P. Fan ell presided,  and the speakers were M. A. Macdonald of Cranbrook and Smith  Curtis.     .   Another Bakery.  and  Moyie is to have another bakery. H. A.

Twenty-seven  members joined ��� the association.  W. H. Wilson was up from  Cranbrook one day' this week.  He had with him his brother, Geo  Wilson, and C. C. McCarkill, who  were here from Farnham, Que.,  looking over the country.  Some dandy spuds were brought  to this office this week ^ which  were grown on the farm of M. J.  Gill and Mike Torpy, which is situated in the valley of the lower  Moyie river a'short distance south  of Curzon.  Joe Mercer, who for a long time  was employed in P. Burns' shop in  Moyie, was back in town for a  day or two this week, and was  meeting his many friends. Mr.  Mercer is now employed as cattle  buyer for the same firm.  Street Improvements.  The work of improving Moyie's  streets and the building and repairing of the sidewalks has been  commenced. Nearly $3,000 will  be expended in this work which  is so much needed. Besides fixing  up the walks now in use, a new  sidewalk will be built along the  east side of Tavistock street from  the, Drewry building to A. P.1  MrtcDonald's , residence near  Queens' avenue, and another  down .Queen's avenue to the  Moyie hotel.;"  J. F.: Armstrong, government  agent, and Johnj ,Reid, government road foreman, were in Moyje  Thursday seeing that the work  was started properly.  Payday.  This is payfiiy at; the St. .Eugene, and th9 '��� sum that will be  disbursed is $40,000.  .. When the Socialist executive  committee approached J. * W.  Fitch for the purpose of renting  Morley hall for the' Davidson  meeting tonight they were confronted with the information that  the hall had already been rented  As there was nothing announced  to take place in the hall tonight,  the  suspicion    of   the   Davidson  followers      immediately   became I the    deferring of   the   Kootenay  aroused, and   they at   once,  and!elections    without   any    just  or  to  advertise  bith- at home ami  (abroad 'the    wona"3/-fnZ  resources  jana"magui��icenfct possibilities ^o��  the'Kootenay   country,'showing- '  its splendi.1 facilities of transportation and  travel.  ���And whereas, ���  the Conservative government under , the  Hon.   Richard  MaBrido '  have most generously given large  sums of modey to open   up roads  and trials  to   the  mining  eamps  and mining prospects all over the  counrry,   thus   encouraging  capital    to  come   in.   And,  wherea",  probably justly so, blamed either  the Conservatives or Liberals for  shutting them out. Iu veivv of  this the Moyie Conservatives  make a complete and unqualified  denial of having had anything to  do with this piece o�� underhanded  political trickery, and are ready  to make a declaration before a  justice of the peace to this effect.

[HK Iroquois had not,<Tcated Be
Catinat    harshly    when    tbey
dragged  bim   from  the, water
into their canoe.    So incomprehensible was it to tbein why any man
*    should   voluntarily   lcar,   a   place   ot
safety In order to put himself in their
power that they could only set it down
to madness, a malady which inspires
awe and  respect among the  Indians.
Two1'warriors passed their bands over
bim to be sure that be was unarmed,
and he was then thrust down between
'.the two women, while the canoe dart-
. ed in toward the bank to tell the others that the garrison of Fort St. Louis
was coming up the stream.   Adele was
' deadly nalo, and her .hand, as her, Iius-
,    band "laid Ills upon 'it, was as cold as
"My darling." bo whispered, "tell 'me
that all is well with you—that you are
"Oh;' Amory. why did' you come?
Why did yon come, AmoryV"
••IIow could 1 stay behind when I
-knew'that you were in'their hands?
We' have gone through so much together Unit we cannot part now. What
, is death. Adele? Why should wo be
afraid of ,itV" . '
"I am not afraid'of it."
' "And I am not afraid of it.    Things

what ne wills muvt in the end be tho

"It is good. lie is a great chief, and

son! Who shall give my son back to
me? Ere that sun shines again we
sliall all be dead'; and my heart is glad,
for I shall see my boy,,,once more." ,
The Iroquois paddlcrs had bent to
their work .until a good ten miles ,lay.
between them and Ste. Marie. Then
they ran the canoe into'a little creek'
upon their own side of the river and
Rprang'out of her.'draggiug the prison-,
ers'after them. Then, after"; a short
council, they started through the forest,
walking in single file, with their three "
prisoners in the iniddle. There wera,
fifteen warriors, in all, eight In'front
and seven behind, all armed,with muskets and as swift footed as deer, so.
'hat escape was out of the question.

Ste.''Marie.    Here, too. were a number,
of the squaws who had come from the
Mohawk and Cayuga villages in order
to be nearer to the warriors. Wigwams
had been erected all round in a circle,'
and before each tof them were the kettles, slung upon a  tripod of sticks, in
which   the   evening   meal   was   being
^cooked.   In the center of all was a very
fierce  fire,   which   bad   been   made  of
brushwood placed in a circle so as to
vhave a clear space of twelve feet in the
middle.   A pole stood up in the center
of this clearing, and something all mottled with  red and  bl'ick  was  tied up
against it.    De Catinat stepped swiftly
in  front of  Adele  that she might not
' see the dreadful thing.
"They have begun already, then,"
said Onega composedly. "Well, it will
be our turn next, and we shall show
thenl that we know bow to die."
"They'have not ill used us yer," said
De Catinat. "Ferbaps they will keep
us for ransom or exchange."
The Indian woman shook her head.
"Do not deceive yourself by any such
hope." said she. "When they are as
gentle as they have been with you It
is ever a sign that you are reserved
for the torture. Your wife will be
married to one of their clilefs, but you
and I must die."'
"Married to an Iroquois!" Those
dreadful words shot a pang through
both their hearts which ,no thought of
death could have done. De Oatiuat's
head dropped forward upon bis chest,
and ho staggered and would have fallen bad Adele not caught him by tho

not that, for I swear to you (hat [ shall

As they onteied the Iroquois village

An Instant I.itci an old w.ir thief, accompanied by two younger braves and
by   the  boarded   half   Dutch   Iroquois
" .who.Isiid led the attack upon the manor
house; strolled over and  stood .'in ■ the
doorway,  looking  in at  the prisoners.
The Bastard was smoking a stone pipe,
and yet it was he who talked the most,
arguing '-apparently  -with   one   of   the
younger savages." who .scorned to come
round lit last to his opinion.    Finally
the  old chief said   a'few short sterii.
words, and the matter appeared to lie
settled.        ■'■--.... !   ..
"And yoivj-oii. beldam." said the Bastard In French to the Iroquois woman,
"you. will have a . lesson this night
which, will leach you to side against
your own people.'"
"You half bred mongrel." replied the
fearless old woman, "you should take

warrior—you who, with a thousand at
your back, could not make your way

husbandmen within it! It is no wonder that your father's people have «_.«»

The evil face of the Bastard grew
livid as he listened to the scornful
words which were hissed at bim by the
captive. He strode across to her, and,
taking her hand,, he thrust the forefinger into the burning bowl of hii
pipe. She made no effort to remove
it, but sat with a perfectly set face
for a minute or more, looking out
through-'the open, door at the evening

face, but at last, with a curse, he
dashed down'her hand and strode from
the hut. She thrust her charred ringer
into her bosom and laughed.

"He does not oven know how to torture. .Now, I could have got 'a cry out

The Indian woman seemed surprised."

In amazement the hand disappeared behind the trunk again, and a face appeared in its place, which still shook
from side to side as resolutely as its

And even as they stared, and-wondered a sudden sl>.-ill whistle burst out
from the depths of the forest, and In a
moment every bush and thicket and
patch of brushwood was sprouthi;:
tire and smoke, while the snarl of the
musketry ran round the whole glade,
and the storm' of bullets whizzed and
pelted among the yelling savages. The

'dians were upon them, and they were
hemmed in by a .ring of tire. First one
way and then another they rushed, to
be met always by the same blast' of
death, until, finding nt last some gap
in Uie attack, they streamed off like
sheep through,a broken fence and rushed madly away into the forest.
But there, was one savage who had
found work to do before he fled. The

wnrr.iors who btood as sentinels at the
door of the but. They had turned
away, absorbed in the horrible preparations which were going on. Then
she rummaged deeply within .the folds
of her loose gown and pulled out a
small pistol with two brass barrel**'
and double triggers In the form of
winged dragons. It was only a toy to
look at, all carved, and scrolled and
graven with the choicest work of the
l'aris gunsmith. For its be.iuty the
seigneur had bought it at his last visit
to Quebec, and yet it might be useful,

A flu'-h of joy shot over De Catinat

with pleasure.
"You will forgive me, dear?" he

'But nowhere p\cept In Its Spanish

Winds and Currents Keep  It Moving
Round and Round.
. The  discoveries  Of modern  science
have  revealed   monsters of  the  deep
as terrific as,any that ancient'fancy
created and have shown  that oceans
are not mere wastes of water, but the
homes   of   an   astounding   variety ' of
living.things    More than this, it has
been discovered  that ihe seas  themselves have, each a sort of law of, existence which they obey.   The hydro-
„graphic oflice nt "Washington has for
years been trying to,learn something
of the characteristics of the Atlantic
ocean' as   a   great   moving   bo'ly   of
wntei by means of bottles containing „
papers,   which   have   b-jen   dropped
overboard    from    vessels   "in    many'
places  to  drift  at the mercy  of the
winds and waves. ' *
Many of these bot.tles ' have -been
found and picked up again either in
the open sea or -on shores where they
had stranded.  , p       ,' • ,
Knowing from its records where
the bottles had been thrown overboard, the bureau has been able'to
trace in a general way the path,they
must have followed in order to, reach
the places where/they were' found.
' Jieing partially filled with air and
then "secureljr corked, the bottles float,
on tho surface Of the water' and go
wherever tho winds and.the currents'
of the sea carry them,, Each' bottle
contains ar record' 'ol -the" place and
date, of, iU starting. Some of those
found have floated for many months
on tho'" bosom of the,, Atlantic and
traveled, .thousands/ of "miles. %
"It  has  been ' Ascertained   that" bottles "droppbd  overboard   between  ihe
'shores of the U;iitod;;States and England >or' France  generally  travel   toward" the    northeast/1, ■ following    the
course of that great .river in the ocean
called the gulf stream.   Bottles started (off(thc coasts r of, Spain  or,, Africa
travel   , westward ' until   they   arrive
among the West India islands. Along
the ""European side  of the ocean "the
bottles  take-.a .southerly  enrse  and

The feat known as the bag and spear
trick has been considered one of the

In this trick, says a writer, (lit* Hindoo

last, when6tlie occupant is apparently

Into the motionless (body. The same

rising from sleep,, each one "wrapping
the drapery of his couch about him,"
with no idea in doing so of conforming
to any standards urged  upon the attention of the race by Mr. Bryant, but
for  the simpler if less poetic reason
that,these draperies constitute his bedding hy night and' his nether garment
by day.   But do not make the mistake
of thinking that because' the requirements   of   Ihe   Hindoo's   costume   are
scanty  his  toilet  is   therefore a  perfunctory  matter.    Follow  him  to the

Whether the tarantula Is ever a

However, (here seems to be no doubt
that the bite of this spider-like creature inflicts one of the most -painful
■wounds that'the human "body can endure. ,Stolid Indians, who have borne
the tortures of the-sun dance without
flinching have been known to roll upon

knew it would be impossible to get oui
through the jam to get something to

longingly at the restaurant across th«
tracks and, seeing an urchin sitting on
the iron pipe near by, he called him
over, saying: "Here, son, take this
quarter and run over to that restaurant aud get me a sandwich. Aud i
get yourself one," ^he called after ths
ho J'.
"You are crazy," said the excursionist beside the man. "You'll never see
that kid or your quarter again."
And as the train whistled at the moment he feared it would be true. Just
then, however, the boy came out of th^.
restaurant with a large fat sandwich
in his hand. The train was moving as
he handed up the change and then,
taking a huge mouthful of the sandwich, he called to the departing man
with the hunger:
"They only had one left.    Thanks!"

According to a government botanist

his meaning In this way: Suppose the

say a tree—to be 100 years; then a bud
removed when tho parent plaut is fifty
years old will also be virtually fifty
years of age and If transplanted by
grafting will be able to live on tho
