These men pointed out the large  revenue . which _ the government  derived from Moyie .and to the  small "expenditure,, which , was  made on the towu" each year in  return. A promise was ' made to  have the government engineer,  Mr. Gamble, come^toiMoyie and  look, into the. wort' requested.

Goodeve, Conservative  candidate for the -Dominion  house, had a rousing meeting in  the Edison theatre at. Ci*nbrook  last night. Victor Rollins occupied the chair, and J. A. Harvey  and others were on the platform  with Mr. Goodeve. It was the  opening of Mr. Goodeve's campaign in-South Eist Kootenay,  and the members of, the^party  feel quite jubilant "over- the; impression he made. '  Mr. Goodeve ;liad no -hesitancy  whatever in wading into the  lobor question, and he explained  to the satisfaction of all the  position which he took ��� during  the trouble at Rossland -.some  years ago. The strike there began in July, 1001, and at 'that  time C. O. Lalonde was mayor.  J. S. Clute was the next mayor,  and was in office when the strike  was declared off on February 10  1902. So that the contention of  many that Goodeve was mayor of  Rossland during  the. trouble   is  the rounding" "of-. Victoria and  Tavistock streets add Moyie'.and  Queen's avenues, and the'opening  up of several of "the other streets.

The committee  now in session in Montreal, representing all the orders and unions  to which employees belong, it is  understood, have given the company this week to decide whether  they will meet this committee in  conference, with the object of  settling the strike, or have the  entire system tied up. The committee in Montreal represent not  only the machinists, boiler makers  and carmen on strike, but also  the" engineers, firemen, conductors  and trainmen.  It seems to be a fight between  the 'unions and the Canadian  Pacific railway, the company having made up its mind to test their  strength.  Thos. A. Edison.

Aa unlooked for  chute of ore was struck while.  driving a tunnel to tap an or.*  body which was uncovered on the  surface. Thoro is only 40 feet yet  to strike this b.ody, which from  this point will have a depth,froui  the surface of 800 feet. Several  Moyie parties hold stock iu thid  property, and W. P.

Tbe four men,  walkcdjn single tile', Du Lhut lending.  De Catinat walked behind, then Bphra-  iin Savage, and then Amos, all with  their weapons ready and with evory  sense upon tbe alert. By midday they  were more than halfway and halted lu  a thicket for n scanty meal of bread  and cheese. For an hour more they  picked their way through the woods,  following In the steps of the old French  pioneer.  Suddenly Du Lhut dropped upon his  knees and stooped bis ear to the  ground. lie rose, shook his head and  walked on with a grave face.  "Did you boar something?" whispered Amos.  -. Du Lhut put his flngor to bis lips and  then in an Instant was down upon his  face with bis ear fixed to the ground.  He sprang up with tbe look of a man  who has beard what he expected to  hear.  "Walk on," said he quietly, "and behave exactly as you have done all  day."  "What is it, then?"  "Indians."  "In" front of us?"  .   "No; behind us.   Tbey are following  'us���two, I think.   Do not look round.  .Walk   on   as  before.    They  are  Iroquois."  "And pursuing us?"  "No; we are pursuing them."  "How far off are tbey?"  "About 200 paces, I think."  "Tbey cannot see us then?".'  "I "think not, but _I-.cannot'be sure.  '  Tbey are following our trail, I'think."*  ."What shall wo.do then?"      '   '.  "Let us make a circle <and get behind them."  ��� . Turning * sharp to the left, he led  tbeni in a long curve through the  woods, hurrying swiftly and yet' silently under the'darkest shadow of the  ,    trees.   Then he turned again atid pres-  . ently halted.  "This is our own track," said he.  ",y.    -'Aye, and two redskins have passed  --*��� oyer  it!" cried  Amos,  bending down  ;'iind pointing to marks which were en-  "'. Urely. invisible to Ephraim Savage and  >,De Catinat.  "A full grosvn warrior and a lad on  his -first ��� warpath," said Du - Lhut.  *_ "They are moving fagt, you see, for  you.can'hardly see the heel marks of  .'- their- moccasins. They walked one behind the other. Now let us follow  them' as they followed us and see if  we have better luck."  He sped swiftly along the trail, with.  his  musket  cocked  in  his hand, tho  others following hard upon his, heels,'  but there was no sound and no sign..of  .   'life from the shadowy woods in front  - of them.- Suddenly Du JLhut stopped  and grounded his weapon.  '"They are still behind,us," he said.  >*   "This is the point where we branched  ., off.  They have hesitated a moment, as  ,* you can see by their footmarks, and  '*, .then :they l*.ive��� followed on."-'  ' "If we go round again and quicken  -    our pace we may-overtake-them."  "No; they are on their guard now.  Lie hero behind tbe fallen log, and wo  - shall see If we can catch a glimpse of  them.'-' -     '  A great rotten trunk, all green* with  mold and blotched with pink and purple fungi, lay to one side of .where they  stood. Behind tbis the Frenchman  crouched, and his three companions  .followed his example, peering through  _^���the_br.usb_wood_scrc_en_in_front of them.  Ten minutes passed, and there was  no sign  of any   living thing behind  "them. ��� ���  "They-are over in yonder thicket,**  whispered Du Lhut.  "Have you seen them?"  "No."  - "How do-vou know, then?"  "I saw a squirrel come from his  hole In* tho great white birch tree yon-  ,dcr. lie scuttled back again as^_u\  something had scared him. From his  bole he can see down Into that brushwood."  '   "Do you think that they know that  we are here?"  "They cannot see us.   But they are  -Busplclous*"  "Shall wo rush for tho brushwood?"  "They would pick two of us off and  be gone like shadows through tlio  woods. No; we had best go on our  way."  "But they will follow us."  "I hardiy think that they will. YVc  are four and they aro only two, and  they know now that we aro ou our  guard. We must push on fast new,  for where there are two Iroquois there  are likely to bo 200 not very far off.  Ah, here is the Ajidaumo creek, where  the Indians set .the sturgeon nets. It  is still seven miles to Poitou."  "We shall be there before nightfall,  then?"  "I think that we had best wait for  nightfall before we make our way in:  Since the Iroquois scouts arc out as  "far as this it is likely that tbey lie  thick round Poitou, and we may find  the last stop the worst unless we have  a care." He paused a moment with  slanting head and sidelong ear. "By  Ste. Anno:" ho muttered, "we have not  shaken them off. Tbey are still upon  our trail."  "You hoar them?'"  "Yes: tbey are no great way from  us. They will find that they have followed us once too often this lime.  Slip off your moccasins, monsieur."  De'Catinat pulled oil bis sliods as  directed and Du Lhut. did tbe same.  '.'Put them on as if they were  gloves," said the pioneer, and an^Jin-  stant later Ephvmm Savage and Amos  had their comrades' shoes, upon .their  hands.  "You can swing your muskets over  your back. So! Now down- on all  fours, bending 3*ourselves double, with  your hands pressing hard upon the  earth. That is excellent. Two men  can leave the trail of four. Now come  with me, monsieur."  He flitted from tree to tree on a line  .which, jvas-riarallel to but jo. few yards  distant from that of their comrades.  Then suddenly he crouched behind a-  bush and pulled De Catinat down he-  side him.  "Tbey must pass us in a few minutes," he whispered.. y'-Do not fire if  you can help it." Something gleamed  in Du Lhut's hand, and his comrade,  glancing down, saw that he had drawn  a keen little tomahawk from his belt.  Suddenly he saw something move. It  flitted like a shadow.from one trunk  to the other, so swiftly that De Catinat  could not have told "whether it were  beast or human. And then again Tie.  saw it, and yet a^aln. sometimes one  shadow, sometimes two shadows. Then  for a' few moments all was still once  more, and then in an instant then-  crept out from among the bushes tbe  most terrible looking creature that ever  walked the earth���an Iroquois chief  upon tho war trail.  Ho was a tall, powerful^ man, and  his bristle of scalp locks and eagle  feathers made bim look like a giant lithe, dim light" for a good eight feet lay  between his beaded moccasin.and tlio  topmost plume of his headgear. One  6ido of his face was painted in soot,  oeher and vermilion to resemble a dog  and the other half as a fowl. His gun  was thrown forward, and he crept  along'with bended knees, peering, Intoning, pausing, hurrying on, a breathing image of caution. Two paces be-,  hind him walked a lad of fourteen.,  clad and armed in the same fashion,  hut without the painted face. ."���--.;���     ;;-  Tbey were just abreast ot the bush,  when something caught the eye of the  younger warrior, some displaced twig  or fluttering leaf, and he'paused, with  suspicion' in every feature. Another  instant and ho had warned his 'companion, but Du Lhut sprang out and  buried his hatchet in the skull of the  older warrior. De Catinat heard a dull  crash, as when an ax splinters its way  into a rotten tree, an'd the man fell  like a log! kicking and striking with  his powerful limbs. The younger warrior sprang like a deer over his fallen  comrade and dashed on into the wood.  But an instant.later there was a gunshot among the trees in front, followed  by a faint walling cry.      ��� *.    . \   .  "That is his death whoop,", said Du  Lhut composedly.  As be spoke the-two'-others came  back, Ephraim ramming.a fresh charge  into*his musket. '   . V*  "Ah, he's gone," said Du Lh'nt As  he spoke the Indian gave a last spasm  with his bands and feet a'nd lay rigid:'  "He's a great chief," said Du Lhut.  "It Is Brown Moose of tiie Mohawks,  and the other is his second son. ~JXe  have drawn first blood, but I do not  think that it will be the last, for the  Iroquois do not allow their war chiefs  to die unavenged. He 'w'aa a mighty  fighter." .       .' ,' .   *,  They turned away, leaving.the^red  figure stretched under.the silent trees.'

"They will follow our tracks when  they find him," said he, "but this will  throw them off, for it is only on running water that an Iroquois can find  no' trace. And now we shall lie In this  clump until nightfall, for we aro little  over a mile from Fort Toitou, and It is  dangerous to go forward, for the ground .'  becom'es more open." -  -A>.di so they remained concealed  among the alders while .the shadows  turned from short to long, and the  white drifting clouds above them were  tinned with the pink of the setting suu.

"Have you been awake?" asked the  pioneer.   Have'you heard anything?'';  "Nothing but the hooting of the owl."  "It seemed^to me in my sleep that I  heard a.gunshot In the distance:"  "In your sleep?"  "Yes. I hear as well asleep as awake  and remember what I hear.

Du Lhut advanced from the bushes  as.lie spoke; and the four men crossed  the open ground in the direction of the  lino of men who waited silently for  them In the dim twilight. They were  within fifty paces, and yet none of  them bad raised-baud or voice to chal-.  lengo their approach. There was something .uncanny In the silence, and a  change came over Du Lhut's face.as  be peered in front of him.  "My Cod!" he screamed. "Look at  the fort!" _���     ...........

FISHER-BERESFOSD ROW.  Juarrel In High Circles May Impair  Efficiency of British  Navy.  The unpleasantness alleged between  Lord Charles Beresford as Command-  ar-in-Chief of the Channel fleet,, and'  Sir John Fisher is attracting a great  deal of attention at the present time  in the Mother Country.   It is felt that  some steps..* wiii shortly be taken to  relieve a situation which, if correctly stated, may threaten the discipline  and efficiency of the British navy.   It  is stated that in November last Sir  Percy Scott, who commands tho First  Cruiser ' Squadron,   made   a   signal  which Lord Charles Beresford ��� not  without reason ��� described as ."contemptuous in tone and insubordinate  in character."   For this  offence  the  Commander-in-Chief reprimanded Sir  Percy Scott in the presence of a junior officer, and caused the signal to  be expunged from the log.      .   .  ���Since-ttiat" time" the -personal  relations  between  the  two  officers  have  become notorious, and Jt is common  knowledge that Admiral Lord Charles  Beresford and Admiral Sir Percy Scott  have not been on speaking tcrnis, notwithstanding that they hold important commands in the same fleet.  The second incident, which carries-  the dispute into another and a higher  quarter, is based on the report o"f the  meeting between Sir John Fisher and  Lord Charles Beresford at a recent  lovee ��� an incident which is said to  have been witnessed by several officers in His Majesty's service, who put  upon it the only construction possible  _at~the moment-  HAWAII'S GOATS.  J  They  Eat   Up   the   Mountain   Forests  and Cause  Floods.  The wild goat of Hawaii in recent  years became a serious menace to agriculture in various parts of the' territory. Secure among the almost Inaccessible cliffs of the mountains,  thousands of these nimble animals  find a congenial home, and, although  uo systematic efforts have as yet been'  Inaugurated for exterminating them,  they are nevertheless extremely* wary  and difficult to approach.  California and Australia have had  their scourges of rahHts, and various  western states 'still have their troubles* in combating prairie dogs and  gophers, but these pests Injure the agriculturist directly by attacking his  growing crops, while, on the otjier hand,  the goats of Hawaii do the same thing  Indirectly by ruining the mountain forests, which conserve the rainfall on  which the water for Irrigation purposes Is dependent. This was not for  a long time appreciated, but of late  'years, with tbe rapid increase in the  number of goats, It has become very  apparent In some sections of the  mountain districts, once heavily wooded, there is now scarcely any vegeta-,  tion at all, due solely to the destructive feeding of tiie "goats. .  ! Goat hunting, is a popular, diversion  in some parts of the territory and as a  Bport Is,by no means^to be despised.  Although the animals are numerous,  Jt requires some; hard', tramping ;and  climbing to get to .their haunts, an<J  -then'a true aim and good eye for distance in oNler to have much success.  Occasionally parties are organized and  a week or more spent in goat shooting,  with the result that sometimes several  hundred are slaughtered. Were it not  for the injurious characteristics of the  little animals the slaughter wotildseem  wanton in the-extreme, for no value is  placed on the carcass, and it is usually  left where-it falls. Indeed, the charac-.  ter of the mountains would often make  it difficult to secure the quarry after  it is shot, and it is only in case of an  especially large animal, which the  hunter may desire to secure as a tro  phy," that any attempt is ever made to  recover the body.  The fact that there seemj* to be no  market for the skins prevents --heir  being bunted for any other purpose  than the spon or in order to reduce  tbelr numbers where they have be*-  come especially troublesome. Could  some use be found for the skins, there  Is no doubt that a great number could  be secured at little cost. The goats  are of the common, back yard, tin can  eating variety transplanted hero years  ago, and, finding tbe conditions especially congenial, they have increased  very rapidly after breaking away from  the dominion ot man, ��� Forest and  Strain-1   ��� ��  �����:  A **l*IUlUii.lBil**Jil.lk.;.l.,i- U U  u  r * X *   "*  ^r  riTi?.**- **���"  f'\  EVERY WEEK  WM &NEW YORK  LATEST STYLES  We are "Tailoring Specialists, and, apart from the question of  economising your tailoring bills by obtaining your clothing straight  from the World's Capital and the Home Country, it will pay you  to get in touch with us.

These incidents are but the visible^  symptoms of differences that have  arisen between Lord Charles Beresford and some of his colleagues. The  difficulty.-���;, of . dealing with . them. is  manifest. It is not easy to decide  where courtesy fails and deliberate offence begins. :. The Admiralty can  hardly he expected to'take action in  defence of- the usual courtesies of  life, but it is of paramount importance to the Empire that the. discipline  of the British navy should be maintained. < ���  "Drummed Out."  The old . regimental custom tjf1  "drumming out" a refractory or dis/-  graced soldier has been revived in a  Scottish Yeomanry regiment. Private James Rennie, of the A Squadron of the Fife and Forfar Imperial  Yeomanry, is stated to have been put  under arrest when in camp near  Cupar for refusing to do work in con-'  ncction with the horses which ho  considered excessive. According to a  report, which was repeated in tho  Honse of Commons in the forrij of a  question to the War Secretary, Rennie was marched under escort into  the middle of, the regiment formed  up in hollow square, where he was  told that he had been sentenced to  be drummed out. The buttons were  then cut from his tunic, and he was  marched out Of the square' to the  sound of the regimental drums. Mr.  JIaldane, who saH that the War Office  had no information, promised to  make an inquiry into the matter.  Taking  a'Walk.

This Year Will See End of Cambridge  Wranglers and  Interesting Custom.  There will be no more-Senior Wranglers at.-Cambridge University after  this term, nor, as a consequence, any  more wooden spoons, either.  As most people ' are aware, the  Wranglers' are the best men of their  year at mathematics, their precise  position'being regulated by a competitive examination extending over several days. The candidate who secures  the highest number of marks is dubbed Senior Wrangler, the others being  designated Second, Third, Fourth  Wrangler, and so on,; in order of  merit.*'The last Wrangler on the list  of these "honor men," as they are  called, is the recipient of the far-  famed woodert spoon.  Formerly, this was a real spoon of  boxwood, prettily carved,' mounted in  silver or gold, and .emblazoned ' with  the college arms. But for many years,  past it has been getting bigger, until now' it' more- nearly resembles a  navvy's-shovel.  On degree day this curious emblem  is lowered from the gallery of the  Senate House, at the moment when,  the victim goes forward to receive his  degree at the hands of the vice-chancellor. Attached to the handle, and  dangling also at various points. from  the cord'that upholds it, are usually  to be.seen a number of Dutch dolls;  polliwbgs, nodding Chinese mandarins, and other similar toys. ���  The custom dates back to the time  before the institution of medals, when-  gold and silver spoons were the usual  reward of superlative merit in scholastic attainments, just as to-day gold  and silver cups are presented for proficiency in atliietics.  The wooden spoon of the mathematical tripos, it may be mentioned,  has its counterpart in the wooden  wedge of the classical tripos, the latter commemorating a certain Mr.  Wedgewood, who chanced to be at the  bottom of the ^honors list when the  examination in' question was first instituted in 1S24.

'!������������  GUINEA NOW HISTORY  PROVERBIAL BRITISH COIN WAS  LAST MINTED,IN   1813.  Poets Who Bravely Talk of, the Coin  Never Saw. One���So Called Because of the Place Whence tha  Gold Came, Wa* Subject to Violent Fluctuations In Value���First  Coined   In  1663.  With poet's license Tennyson tells  us how "the Jingle .of the guinea  helps the hurt that honor feels." It  is doubtful if the poet ever heard a  guinea jingle, and certainly few of  the readers of "Locksley Hall" have  ever set eyes on that^.coin.  And yet.���such is the force of habit  ���we talk about guineas and reckon  in guineas, and read about the  jingling of guineas without ever asking ourselves why a coin which is no  longer a coin persists in lingual currency, not only poetic but popular.  Tho last guinea issued from the  mint bears .date 1813; groats and  maundies were* copied in the era of  Victoria; why, then, has mankind,  including the poets, forgotten all  about the latter and clung to the  former? There seems no obvious  reason.  It inajF be because the guinea had  so long a-reign, or because the word  itself is "catchy," or because sellers  have found .readier customers for  goods at "one guinea".'than for goods  at ."one-pound one."   .  It was in the reign ofjCharles II.,  to be exact, in the yea*f 1663, that  the first golden guinea was brought  into the world. It was part-of a new  coinage made in a new way, for it  was milled, a device to prevent clipping, which, indeed, had been introduced in Elizabeth's time, but  soon abandoned. ���    --  There were five-guinea, "two-guinea,  guinea and half-guinea' pieces, and  they were so named because many of  them were* made from gold brought  from Guinea by the "Company of  Royal Adventurers of England Trading Into Africa." In allusion, probably, to this company's arms, the  King ordered that the pieces should  bear the image of "a little white  elephant which Wee intend as a  marke of distinction -from the rest of  our gold and silver monies, and an  incouragement unto the said Company 'in the importing of gold and  silver to be coined."  On some of the coins, too, there is  a castle, and the reason of t��is may  be that in 1666 Sir Robert Holmes  captured in ���Schelling Bay 160 Dutch  sail containing bullion' and gold dust  from Cape-Coast Castle, in Guinea,  and that this booty found its way  into the mint. The exploit is celebrated in Dryden's "Annus Mira-  bilis."  It is curious, in the light of this  incident, that the guineas were cut  by a Dutchman named John Roet-  tier, who competed for the work with  an Englishman, Thomas Simon, sand  beat him; while a foreigner again,  the Frenchman Blondeau, had charge  of the milling apparatus. Simon was  disgusted at his defeat, and to show  that he was really the better man  made and presented to the King what  came to be known as- the '.'Petition  Crown." The King, however, ignored  this appeal.  The new coinage, apparently, caused no little stir, for the two immortal  diarists of that day both mention it.  "Now it was," wrote Evelyn on March  9, 1664, "that the fine new milled  coin, both of white money and  guineas, was established"; and Pepys  tells us how "There dined with us  to-day (March 9 1663) Mr. Slihgsby,  of the Mint, who showed us all the  new pieces, both of gold and silver,  that were made for the King by  Blondeau's way; and compared them  with those made for Oliver. The pictures of the latter made by Symons  (Simon), and of the- King by one  Rotyr (Roettier), a German, I think,  that dined with us also."  The guinea, moreover, or rather  the elephant upon the reverse side  to that which bore the bust cf  Charles II., receives notice in Mar-  ,vell-s-prose,- "where ~he-speaks_of_a_  "great little animal," which "was on  a sudden turned so yellow and grown,  withal so unwieldy that he might  have passed current for the elephant  upon a guinny", and' popular combinations of the word quickly arose,  Buch ns- "guinea-dropper," a cheat  who practiced the trick of dropping  counterfeit coins, and "guinea-hen,"  a courtesan. .'. '.-.���'...  Our forefathers had much trouble  with the coinage. Sometimes', they  could-not get metal enough to; coin;  sometimes ,\the market value of the  metal used for coining .was such that  men found it profitable to melt down  their money and sell it in bulk:  sometimes kings, notably Henry  VIII., debased the coinage; and. until  milling became the rule, clipping was  of constant, practice.  Silver was the sole standird until  1816, and consequently the golden  guinea was subject to market fluctuations, according to the condition ol  the silver coin.; It started its history  at the value Ot 20 shillings, then rose  as high as 30, and at other times  was equal to 26, 22 and" 20 shillings  and sixpence.  Pepys, in 1666. quotes his goldsmith  to the effect "that ginnys which 1  bought 2,000 of not long ago that cost  ' me but 18 l-2d change .will,now cost  me 22d; and but very' few to be had  at any price." Parliament fir-ally  took the matter up. and by John  Locke's advice the guinea was fixed,  in 1717, at 21 shillings, at which it  remained until 1813, when it' ceased  to be issued, and yielded-its place  to the sovereign; which, by-the jway  it had originally displaced.

Uaaful Animal   First  Domesticated  by  *- the Asians.  It is said (that the horse was first  tamed and used in Asia. The Egyptians and the Assyrians used bim at  an early date, but for a long time  after he was tamed they rode him  only In time of war, considering him  too good for the ordinary work of burden carrying and riding. This work  was done by the ass, a more plebeian,  animal. * >  ' After the Egyptians "and the Assyrians began taming and using the horse,  the practice extended to the Scythians,  and It Is said that when the Greeks  met the Scythians in battle they were  panic stricken at the sight of those  warriors mounted on the unLnown animals, believing horse and rider to be  one creature. That Is probably the  origin of the centaur, In Grecian my-  thology, half man and half Horse. You  have read the story, no doubt  There were no ��� horses In this country wbeu white men came here, and  the Indians were as much alarmed to  see the Spaniards riding those they  brought over with them as were tha  Greeks when they first saw the Scythians similarly mounted. Perhaps this  may surprise. you, for most persona  think that~"*tbe wild horses of the  western plains have been there always,  so to'speak. They have,not, however,  for they are all descended from the  horses brought from Europe by th��  eurly settlers. It Is the same" with the  wild horses of South America, which  live In the pampas in great herds of  thousands each. They all came from  European stock.���Chicago News.

Signs by Which You May Know When  a Dog Is Really Mad.  Hydrophobia is so rare and terrifying  that Its symptoms and treatment are  little understood.

On the contrary,  mad dog's often rush to the water,and  drink it^pagerlyj .if they are able to  swallow/The mad dog does-not froth  at the rpouth. It does not run amuck,  snapping at- everything In its path.  What, then, are the Indications of the  mad dog? To those familiar with a  given dog the surest symptom and the  one which sbould excite, closest attention is a distinct and unaccountable  change In the dog's disposition, a staid  dog becoming excitable and a frisky  one dull. -That condition does not necessarily mean' rabies, .but It ,1s suspicious, and If in addition the dog has  trouble In swallowing, as though It  seemed to have a bone In its throat,  beware! That dog should be instantly  tied up, because If It be rabies "it takes  but a day or two for ferocious in-  ..stincts to develop. The unmistakable  evidence, however, 'of a' dog with  rabies Is the sticky, whitish saliva  which covers the teeth and shows on  thedrawn lips. The eyes glare and  are red; the dog has paroxysms of running fury, during which it barks  hoarsely, which alternate with periods  of temporary exhaustion. ��� Caspar  Whitney in Outing.

" 'Yep, twice,' said Captain H:' 'Happened off Point Aux Barques 'bout fifteen years ago. We were joggin' 'long  when a thunderstorm overtook us, and  the very first flash of llghtniu' struck  the deck amidships and bored a hole  as big as my right leg right down  through the bottom of the vessel.'  " 'And she foundered, of course?'  " 'No, sir. The water began rusbln*  In, and she would have foundered, but  there came a second Dash, and a bolt  struck my foreto' gallant mast.

Little One Must Rise as Soon a* Ho  Wakes. '   '  "From his earliest years," says Edwin Collins, latter day exponent of  Rousseau's theory that a child must  not be taught systematically until  twelve years old. "the little one must  rise as soon as be awakes, though on  no account must he be awakened,prematurely. After a bath he must'"go  straight out Into the garden, and there,  if possible, eat a substantial meal of  as much wholesome food as.appetite  suggests. , The .child may then ask  questions, and these should be answered. Then, as in the philosophy of  the great Socrates, other subjects will  suggest themselves. These must be  pursued so long as there Is no slackening of interest. Let me suggest a  concrete example: The morning prayer* may suggest Bible history. This,  *In turn, will open out topics of general  history; then the untrained mind may  wander off Into geography^and even  hygiene. The child must play, too, as  his fancy dictates. Dumbbells and  systematlzed__flthletlc exercises I do  not recommend, except in the case of  stooping or' deformed children, and  under the advice of a health specialist  The next variation In the child's day  Is to listen to the reading of poetry, if,  he-chooses. Arithmetic and the multl-*  plication tables be learns during his  play with, matches and marbles. If  the child'wants "to eat, let him have  plenty of wholesome food, and at noon  or shortly afterward a full meat dhv.  ner. I am no faddist, but I disagree  with giving a child tea,' coffee or stlm-  ru5ant3. At the age of ten or eleven  years, however, this rule may be relaxed. A short rest, out of doors, follows the midda/ meal, and then, again  provided the child is not unwilling, a  long walk is advantageous. For tea,  bread with plenty of butter Is the thing.

The above lytes'tlon is often asked concerning Dr. fjerce's two leading medicines, "GoUlcn Medical Discovery" and  "Favorite Prescription."  Tho answer is that "Golden Medical  Discovery " Is ajnost potent alterative or  blood-purifier, and tonic or invigorator  and acts especially favorably In a curative way upon all tho mucous lining surfaces, as of .the nasal passages, throat,  bronchial tubes, stomach, bowels and  ���jjjl-iddes-Msnrlng a large per cent, of catarrhal caifls whether-the disease affects the  nasal parages, the thsoat, larynx, bronchia, stomacnNtas catarr-kal dyspepsia),  bowels-(as mi*?(;oi^<d��j��q*5��>Ji bladder,  uterus or other IJClvic orgiTrrs?

For weak worn-  out, over-worked women���no matter what  has caused the break-down, "Favorite  Prescription" will ho found most effective  ha building up tho strength, regulating  the womanly functions, subduing pain  twA bringing about a healthy, vigorous  condition of tho whole system.  A book of particulars wraps each bottle  giving tho formulas of both medicines and  quoting what scores of eminent medical authors, whose works are consulted  by physicians of all tho schools of practice  Last week the Leader published  a ten line editorial criticisir g  Gaylord     Wilshire's   "-wildcat"  methods of promoting his ^^cp'i^^^^^^^  creek mine. The article has rais- .^TSS^Wt^S^'B^  ed the ire of one John Sullivan, a | W��^^  miner working on the St.  Euget e   non-professional  testimonials,   because  "-***������������������������"& ��������">��� ��    �����        to1--  w   such men aro writing for tho guidance of  bill, and that gentleman has come; i��|lrsmc��{{caI brethren and know whereof  Both medicines aro non-alcoholic, non-  secret, and contain no harmful habit-  forming drugs, being composed of glyceric  extracts of the roots of native, American  "ba k   at   us   this week   -with a  lengthy   letter  for   publication.  Sullivan   has     such  unbounded  fiith in Wilshire and bis mine  that he    is   willing to   back his  statements   with   the  coin.   He  has $100 to wager that the editor  ' of this paper cinnot buy a share  of stock from the company at any  ' price, and another $100   that he  cannot go" into the open market  and    buy a   single share at 50  conts.'  ''   The Leader based its assertions  on the gist  of   several   articles  "which  appeared in the  Miners'  Magazine on this subject, all of  which tended to .show that   Wil-  Bhire wns   not dealing   honestly  with   his    "comrades."    Robert  ���. Randall, who    made a   personal  examination of the property, and  -who is" probably   as   conversant  With the'f tcts as U John Sullivan  of the Sb.- Eugene hill, has    no  hesitancy in branding Wilshire's  jnina  as a fraud.   Ri.nd.all  suggests that if WUshiva wants to  play the gime let him do so aa-  " "cording to the ethics of the regu*  -���lar min'ng , stock swindlers.   But  ' as a   member , of the    Sjcialisc  party he protests- .'against   Wil-  shire exploiting the Socialist fen-  " timent in ordei" to finance a wildcat mine, - -   "  ������/ The "assay.*-" th\t Mr. Wilshire  "',*.������''-  -80 confidently" publishes does not  prove that there'is a real mine at  Bishop   creek,    or within   1,000  miles   of -hi3 layout.   It 'simply  place*)   his   '���d-jp-'" in,the same  class a3   the regulation wildcat  -^ball-eoQ.���As-Raudell-points-Qut,-  an assay  certificate is, no more  proof of a mine than a certificate  of   membership in   a churoh is  proof that the holder is a Christian. .' .  But R*hd*ll is not alone in this  estimation oE Gaylord Wilshire.  Henry- T. Jones of New York asks  some- pertinent questions. He  wants to know what has become  of the $800,000 the comrades have  ' sent to Gaylord Wilshire. This,  he claims, was sent for the sole  purpose of developing the Bishop  creek g>ld mine, aud instead it  was u3edt"o b'iy mine3 in Sjuth  America and to pay Wilshire'fc  personal debts, Wil'hire started  a bankm New York, which was  a failure, and he loined $4,000  to the Chicigo Dvily Sjciaiist,  and the question arises, was this  done with part of the money the  comrades set to develop the B.s  hop creek miue?  Instead of wagering $300 with  the editor of the Leader, we  would strongly advise Mr. Sullivan to invest his money in Bishop  creek gold mine stock. His profits will be Lirger. 'Wilshire has  firnred it out that he has $2,000,-  000,000 g >ld in sight in his Bishop  creek mine, enough to put the  monetary system of the world b  the bum, and.mike gold as]cheap  as chewing gum.
