Sudrow died in California a few-  days ago.  A store has been opened in the Arlington Basin.  Mrs. R M. Covington will open a fruit  store in Slocan City.  The Miners' Union of Sandon will  give a ball next Thursdaj' evening  Thomas Brown has gone to the Boundary, and will probably open a store in  Phoenix.  New Denver's police force is guarding  with sacred zeal "the devil's slide" on  Sixth street.  Sandon will have a rink this winter,  a local company having been organized  for that purpose.  H W. Holling was in town last week  looking up new subscribers for the  'Frisco Examiner.  Claims on Crawford creek, in the  Ainsworth district are attracting considerable attention;  The lower levels of the Slocan landscape were covered with snow for the  first time last Friday.  More hotels are seeking a license in  Slocan City. There is not business for  those already established. .  The annual K. of P. ball, owing to  inclement weather, was not as well attended as in former years.  Two tons of ore recently shipped from  the Mollie Hughes to the Nelson smelter  gave returns of 342 ounces of silver and  $7.45 in gold.  The cold snap did not touch the cider  in John Williams store. It is still on  tap awaiting the coining of those who  are tired drinking aqua pura.  The cold snap that visited the Slocan  this week is said to be the tail end of  a Dakota blizzard. With a strong enough imagination one can picture what  the real Dakota horror is like.  The annual Christmas tree entertainment is in preparation by the Sunday-  school children. It will be held in Bosun hall, Christmas Eve, and gives  promise of excelling anything of previous years.  The Macoy company played to a slim  house, owing to the fat state of the elements. The artists know their business  . but they should strike this camp when  a. snowstorm is not playing a wild west  engagement.  A lady was calling at the home of a  New Denver hopeful, and, during a  brief absence of the mother from the  room, was entertained by the three-  year-old. He had just been provided  with his first pair of suspenders, was  proud of them, and, boy like, wanted  to tell about them. "Yo' doesn't, know  what Ps eot, Missus Blank,'' said he.  "I's got���I's got���" but he had forgotten the name aud could get no  farther. He was not to be outdone,  however, and, looking inquiringly into  the lady's face, innocently asked : "What  yo! call 'em things what yo' hang  you're pants on?''  With Candidate McKane in the field  in opposition to Candidate Galliher, the  election of Chris Foley is almost a certainty. It appears that the real fight is  not between candidates, but rather between towns���Nelson vs. Rossland.  With the Conservative candidale out of  the race Galliher would have the advantage and might win, but with both  old parties represented the labor vote  will be solid for Foley and will elect  him. Rosslandleadersunderstand this,  hence their determination to keep two  Rossland candidates in the race. McKane has no earthly show of election,  but through him Rossland will defeat  Nelson and get a Rossland man in the  Dominion parliament.  SLOCAN    MINERAL    FLOAT.  The Red Fox will soon be a shipper.  Last week the Arlington shipped 80  tons.  The Sovereign is taking out 20 tons a  week.  Work will be continued all winter at  the Lilly B.  New strikes are constantly being  made upon Slocan properties.  It is reported that the Enterprise will  put up a mill in the next century.  During October the Bosun shipped  100 tons of galena from New Denver.  It is reported that the Molly Gibson  has half a million dollars worth of ore  in sight.  Last week the Payne shipped 248  tons.

Seven men are working at the Bondholder and a shipment will be ready by  the end of the month.

"Tell me," said the fair creature he  addressed, repressing with a conscious  look of pride an inward shudder, "you  own the house and grounds you showed  me don't you?"  "I do."

There were 35 men on the Snowshoe  payroll last month.  Rich ore has been encountered on the  Remington, in Summit camp.

This  week the old town experienced a tinge  of the good old times of yore, when  everybody felt like treating, and everybody treated. The occasion was the  celebration of the carrying away under  the narcotic influence of love's benedic-  tine two of Slocan's old-timers by fair  woman���Geo. Williamson and Geo.  Long.  The ceremony that made George  Williamson a benedict was performed  last Thursday evening at his comfortable little home overlooking the lake  in Bigelow Bay, Rev. A. Mount officiat- j  ing. Miss Margaret Monroe, oflngersoll,  Ont., was the bride. She, in company  with Miss Ethel Williamson, arrived  the same evening from her Ontario  home, and the ceremony was performed  in the presence of only a few friends.  Mr. and Mrs. Williamson were the recipients of many valuable presents.  Monday evening, in the parlors of the  St. James hotel, in the presence of a  number of friends, George Long shuffled  off the toils of bachelorhood and became involved in the coils of wedlock;  accepting as his partner through life  Miss Maud Bagley. Rev. A. E. Roberts  officiated. Miss Anderson acted as  bridesmaid and Nat Tucker, George's  business partner, as best man. Mr.  Long- is a pioneer of the Slocan, and  his friends are legion. Many were  present to witness the ceremony, and  celebrated   the glad occasion   as  only  me to the station and bought two first-  class tickets for Davenport. I sat in the  forward coach, with.a melancholy look  of sorrow upon my careworn face, and  really think I inspired a feeling of pity  and sympathy in the breasts of my fellow passengers.  The ride to Davenport was uneventful  and on our arrival there I went forward  to the baggage coach to see that my  charge met with no mishap. The bag-  gagemaster had his head out of the  doorway of the car and seemed to be  gasping for breath. On setting eyes on  me. and seeing my mournful rig, he  inquired, and in no cordial fashion:  "Brother of yours?" On my nodding a  solemn yes, he added:  "Well, you can bet your life he ain't  in no trance."  DEATH    OF   MARSH.  pioneers can.

Booth, of Ottawa, is offering $40  to $50 and board for log hewers and  scalers.  fortable quarters for the men, blacksmith shops, ore houses, etc. This in  the brief time that the property has  been in the hands of the Collum syn-  dscate is a record of which the management may feel proud.

The streak of clean galena  that was showing in the tunnel face  when work was started several weeks  ago, has staid in place regularly as the  work has "progressed, and the owners  anticipate striking something big when  the contact lead is encountered. Should  they do so, and it is demonstrated that  galena ore exists in the ledges of Goat  mountain at depth, it will revive interest in this locality and mean much to  New Denver in particular and the district in general.

Marsh Adams was a well known man in  Nelson, Kaslo and  Sandon.     He  went  to Kaslo in the early days of the Slocan  boom and located at the Kootenay lake  town, where he spent the last few years  of his life.   For some time of late Mr.  Adams occupied the  position of chief of  the  Kaslo  police.     He  was  adapted  physically for the office, as  he  was a  man 6 feet in height and  broad proportionately.    He   was the owner of the  Leland  hotel on   Front   street, Kaslo.  His death will  be much   regretted by  the people   of   Kaslo   and   his Slocan  friends.    Speaking   of  his   death,  the  Spokesman-Review   says:  ceased was 44 years of age  native of Ohio.     His widow is  in the  city and has arranged for the remains  to be shipped to Kaslo, where they will  be buried in the cemetery at the foot of  the   mountain  which stands sentinellike over the town.    The death  of Mr.  Adams   was   rather   unexpected.    He  was brought to this  city suffering from  pneumonia, and was taken  to  the Sacred Heart hospital for treatment.    He  had only been in that  institution a clay  or   two   when   he   succumbed   to   his  illness."  PEKNIE    COKK.  ;'The    de-  He was a  j bank or a factory.

The 60  new ovens will add about 90 tons a day  to the coke supply, and this additional  quantity will, it is estimated, furnish all  the coke that the Boundary creek  smelters will use until their furnace  capacity shall have increased, and, too,  any extra consumption at the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks, to which live  cars of coke a day are now being sent.  Later, the company's new coal mine at  Michel, east of Fernie. will be in shape  to put out some 700 tons daily, but at  present it is only adding 100 tons a day  to the total the company has available  for shipment. Some time ago, when  the provincial demand for coal and coke  was comparatively small, a market was  sought south of the international  boundary line, with the result that the  j whole of the output of the company's  mines could now easily be placed across  the. line.

To oppose the burial of  the dead on Sunday seems like  slipping back to a period when the  world was dark with ignorance and  superstition. If men of such narrow brain pans were allowed to  dictate how people, should act they  would prohibit births and deaths  on Sunday for fear that such events  would tend to deplete their pews of  a few occupants. They would also  have the wind blow regularly on  Sunday, so that it would jar the  windows of their churches and keep  their 'congregations, awake. In  fact, there is no telling what such  i cranks would do if the world was  controlled by them. They would  cinch freedom to the last notch,and  drape the universe in a. mantle of  religious slavery.

Dryden says that good sense and  good nature are never separated,  though the ignorant world has  thought otherwise. Good nature,  by which is meant candor and  beneficence, is the product of right  reason.  At the recent election in Kentucky a local politician induced a  lot of negroes to shoot craps. They  were then arrested for gambling  and lost their votes by being locked  up. This is a new scheme to win  an election that would not work in  the Slocan, as we are short on coons  and craps.  Rudyard Ripling is very polite.  It is said that once while in Montreal he was interrupted in the  midst of a reverie by a Star reporter who wanted to interview him.

C, NOVEMBER 22. 1900.  ''Don't you ever miss the old  life ?" he asked as the three of us  eat in my Greene street home sipping- hot Scotch and respinnihg old  yams. Jim had reference to my  leaving the force, but I could, in all  honesty answer: "Not so much as  you would imagine. Although I  am no longer on the pay roll, I yet  have my diversions. And really  eome of the most peculiar cases I  ever happened upon have come to  me since resigning."  < 'Such as the Spotted Bull Dog?''  suggested Kenton.  "Well, yes." I responded. "That  was unique, but devoid of all ugliness; no brutal features, you know.  It was a pretty enigma, and I wish  all criminal problems were resulting in as little harm."  "Do you ever run across any  cases as complicated as those set  down by Doyle in his Sherlock  Holmes stories?" asked Jim, refilling his pipe. Although I call him  Jim, like Kenton and myself he  was past the prime of life. Three  old cronies we were who had only  ihe past to live in.  "No and yes," I answered. "I  have known of some extremely  puzzling affairs that balked all  efforts of solution, affairs seemingly  blind, yet made clear by a trifle.  But I have never believed in this  deduction theory. Doyle is a brilliant man to invent such deductions, but of course he works backward. If a man could possess the  quick intuition of his Holmes, he  could make extremely clever guesses  made by a revolver held at  close  range.    As I  was  saying,   I  had  forgotten it when I received orders  to sail at once for Savannah to look  after a  case  there.    On  the first  night out I had been playing whist  in the smoking room and   did   not  leave the table until quite late.   As  I entered the saloon I heard a  cry  at  the  farther  end and thought I  saw some one dart into a passageway.    The saloon was deserted and  dimly lighted.    I hurried forward,  not expecting to find  any  one,   so  was startled when I stumbled upon  a young man sprawling in a pool of  blood and moaning feebly.   I called  for help and tried  to  bolster  him  up.    My partner at the whist table  now appeared and several servants.  We found he had been stabbed, or,  rather, slashed across the neck, the  cut extending down  to the  right  shoulder.     It was a wicked wound  and bled profusely.    But, as it had  missed the jugular and there  were  two doctors abroad besides the boat  physician, we believed it  was   not  fatal.    Restoratives were given,the  flow of blood checked,and the victim  placed in his berth.  "When questioned as to how it  happened,he could only tell us that,  as he was about to enter the passage leading to his stateroom, he  experienced a shock, a burning  sensation, and realized that an old  man with white hair and beard,  wrapped in a long, white gaament,  was pushing by him. The knife  with which the blow was given was  picked   up  a  few  feet  inside  the  that I felt a little shaky. You see,  I had passed through something of  the same once before. Only in the  former case the agony was not prolonged. But here we were in a  boat out of sight of land, knowing  that somewhere in our midst was a  murderer, all the more terrible because he was not known.  "Passengers with drawn revolvers ransacked each stateroom,while  the boat officials examined every  inch of the vessel. I took but  little part in these proceedings, for  I remembered the past and did not  look for any solution of the mystery. As night drew on again the  fear increased. Who next? was  the look in every eye. Armed  watchers guarded the more remote  parts of the boat, while the passengers to a person almost huddled together in the saloon. I believe a  few whose staterooms opened off  from the saloon did retire, but not  an eye was closed in sleep throughout the night.  "Along about 2 o'clock I determined to take a little scout about  on my own hook, and, slipping on  the 'sneaks,' with loaded  revolver  mirror. I then realized the horrible truth, for the face wore the  same look of fiendish intensity I  had seen in the passageway.  "When the boat's people found  me I had her handcuffed and she  was writhing in a maniac's frenzy.  She was a sporadic murderer and  she was also the young woman who  had clung to me so tenaciously  during the preceding day. I trembled as I thought of my danger."  "What about the white hair and  linen duster?" broke in Kenton,  whose pipe had gone out the meanwhile.  "We found them stuffed under  her berth; also the false beard," " I  explained. "She died inside of a  year in a lunatic asylum.'"  "I shall keep alight burning for  a week," muttered Jim. as they  prepared to leave.  "Are you sure she's dead?" inquired Kenton,slipping on his great  coat.���St.   Louis Globe-Democrat.  THE RUBENS VEST  IF   YOU  S  H.  GIEGERJCH  Smoke our '��� n    ��� '  '.

It wouldn't do  in  real life  to put down every sun-burned man  as coining from India or every worn  Bleeve as belonging to a typewriter."  "Is there any truth in this sporadic Dr. Jekyll���Mr. Hyde business?" inquired Kenton.  "A little," I said, running over  in my mind different crimes and  their perpetrators. "Did I ever  tell you about the old man in the  linen duster?"  "No," both replied. "Let us  k&ve it."  "It began like this:   Back in the  days when Jim Fisk  was commodore of the Fall River steamboats I  had occasion  to go to   Newport.  Completing my   business there,   I  took passage for New York in  the  same boat I  had  come down  on.  Early in the morning I was  up  to  see the sun rise, it being a fad  of  mine   when   afloat.     As quite   a  number of us  were chatting  near  the rail on the port side there  was  considerable of a splash in the water  below, and a deckhand  cried  out,  'Man overboard !'    We all sprang  forward and leaned over  the  rail,  while not a  few  grabbed  hold  of  ropes ready to throw to the unfortunate.     'There  he is!'   one  man  cried,   pointing   excitedly.     They  were reversing the engines  meanwhile.     'He acts queer,'  muttered  some one at my left.    Then we saw  the reason for it, for as  the sun's  first shaft struck the water the man  rolled over and assumed an almost  upright  position,   while  a ray  of  light flashed across his face, revealing a dark red discoloration.   'He's  been shot through the head !' cried  a deckhand below,   who  was  in aj  better position to  see.    The right  arm of the corpse was flung upward  probably by the action of the water [  from the propeller, and seemed  to  point above  us.    Instinctively   we  all looked to the upper  deck,   and  there, hanging far out, with a face  wearing the most   malignant hate.  oi" hellish glee, I ever saw, was an  old man whose long white hair and  beard marked him   conspicuously.  "We all rushed for the stairway,  but on gaining the upper  deck  he  was gone.    A steward informed  us  that such a person dashed   by   him  and that he wore a long linen duster.     He also said that the man was  muttering    something   to    himself!  wholly unintelligible.    Bj- this time  the ship   was   in   commotion.     We  informed the captain   of   what   we  had seen, and at onee orders   were  given to search the ship.     No   pas-j  sengcrs were found   answering   the!  description.     A second search   wasj  made, every passenger being sen it-j  inized.     Then ail   hands   were   in- i  speeded, but with the'same   result.!  On reaching the   West   street   pier;  ollicers   were   star-ioned   about   the!  gangway,   and   as   the   passengers!  hied ashore all were again subjected '  to close examination.     But no   old |  U's'iitlenian was found wearing white!  mark. I took the captain aside  and related the murder on the Fall  River boat of a year previous. He  remembered it, and at once took  steps for a most thorough search.  But, as in the other case, no old  man was found. Excepting a judge  of the supreme court, one or two  congressmen and several well known  merchants of New York city, no  men of advanced age were on board.  The officers of the boat were anxious  that the Fall River mystery should  not be coupled with the affair, but  in some manner it got out. You  never saw such a nervous crowd.  Although the boat was now brilliantly lighted, no one would go  about alone. The servants were  extremely agitated, and moved to  obey orders in pairs. The next  day saw no abatement in the dread  of the old man who had ranished  so completely. Once, when Judcje  S. approached two youngsters on  the forward deck, I noticed that  one of them reached for his hip.  Several of the women were in hysterics, and one of them, on learning  of my identity, clung to my arm  all day long.    And I  must admit i  have prowled  about for an   hour  when I reached a passage  leading  back to the cabin.    As I was about  to enter it I remembered it was the  same one through which the  murderer fled on the night before.    A  light was dimly burning  near the  center of.the passage, and under it  I could discern a watchman,  who  was   evident!}'  asleep.     For  some  reason   I  looked behind me.    All  was clear, but as I turned again I  experienced the greatest shock of  my life, for, bending over  the  recumbent guard was the old man in  the  linen   duster   with   a' wicked  looking knife upraised.    I let  out  a yell that ought to  have  reached  the mainland, and,  thrusting  forward ni}-  revolver,   let go.     With  an answering shriek the old   man  turned and dropped his weapon.    I  hope never again to see such a look  of devilish ferocity as  shone   from  his face.    Of course all  this  took  place in a second, but even  then I  knew m}-  bullet had gone  wide.  Without the knife, however, I was  not afraid of him, and with another  yell I jumped forward.    But quicker than I the old man darted a few  steps down the passageway and into a stateroom. After him I sprang,  but   found   the   door   locked.     I  jumped against it, but it did  not  give way entirely.    With  another  lunge I had it opened.    A woman's  scream greeted me, and I saw that  the occupant was sitting up in her  berth, her eyes full of terror.    The  window was open, and with  scant  courtesy I rushed for this.    I could  hear the passengers crying out to  one  another  and  running  about.  The  woman   behind   me   stopped  screaming.

All that any rational, stmaibie individual wants to convince him that drugs  and feeding in disease are a fallacy is to  watch nature throw off disease "when  left entirely alone.   I can't blame''the  average physician for his blind faith in  medicine.   He goes to college and there  the fallacy is pumped into him by a set  of men whom he has learned to respect  for their supposed wisdom.   He is made  to believe that drugs will do so and so.  The professor on  materia medica becomes so swelled up by the deference  shown him by a lot of bright, ambitious  young men and women, that he  dtaws  on his imagination for what he can't get  out of books,   and.   paints   wondrous  pictures of what   drugs   will   do.   He  spins many theories, which he is safe in  doing for his auditors can  not dispute  him, aud.it will be years  before they  can, for the  superstition  is  so  rubbed  into them that  when they go out to  practice they will be suspicious of themselves and everybody else except   their  teacher.   Our college chairs are often  filled by men who have no experience  worth mentioning.   The most conceited, dogmatic professional man on  terra  firma is the college professor who. has  an income of $500 or $o00 a year,   with  enough nerve to stand his tailor off-, and  has the Colonel Sellers art of making  others see the millions that he has (in  his  mind).     From   such   nincompoops  students are.filled with medical wisdom;  after they are filled they are sealed and  labeled aud sent out upon & suffering-  community.      The    sealing    is    proof  against  invasion;  no thought can gain  an entrance unless it bears the proper  brand.   This  is why there is no progress, unless we are willing to recognize  the compounding of fallacy as progress.  Why   should  physicians  know  anything about natures  curative  powers?  They   are   taught   to   suppress   every  effort of nature to throw  off disease.  The patient is saturated with drugs and  poisoned with food,and from this medley  of malpractice   scientific   theories   are  spun to befog  the  profession  and  kill  their victims.    A physician who has not  watched a Case of fever,  or any  other  disease, run its course uninterrupted,  what is his opinion worth  on  the subject?   No drug advocate knows   anything about the natural   powers of  the  system for throwing off disease.  " Every effort of  nature  is  recognized  as an   enemy���a   disease���to   be   suppressed   as   soon   as   possible.    If   the  bowels undertake to eliminate a poison  by running off, a doctor or druggist or  the officious layman will lire a volley of  checking   medicine    into    the   subject  ignorantly believing  that a  cure  consists in suppressing nature's effort.    If a  patient   has  a  cough,  ignorance  says  give a. remedy to check  it.    If a   fever  manifests itself,  heart depressants  are  in order to brine it down.    If a patient  has a  pain,  it  must be  overcome by  drugs   that   deaden    sensation.      If   n  patient can't sleep, drugs are given  to  force  it.    If  the bowels are sluggish or  refuse to act, they must be forced.    All  ihis idiotic work is dignified by  calling  it science,    (-rod save the mark, for  the  victims   can   not   be  saved.    Not  one  prescription in  one  thousand  has  one  tota of sense or reason in it.  What causes a diarrhea? Rotting of  food in the intestines- Is there any  fense or reason in preventing nature  from throwing it off? Can't the most  stupid person on earth sec that to check  it retains in the bowels n poison which  if absorbed must produce disease, somewhere else? if the stomach and bowels  can not digest���diarrhi-a is one proof  positive that they can not���is there, any  sense or reason in putting mare food in  until time,   has   been   ^-i veil   to   resume  or taking it at improper timeB. The  power to take care of food by digesting  and asjaimilating is interfered with by  overwork or underwprk, worry or anything that uses up nerve power.  As I have said before, anything that  uses up nerve force lessens" our power  to digest. If a man lives the life of a  potato he can't have any trouble with  digestion. The man who thinks,worries  and lives an active life can't compete in  eating with the fellow who allows the  other fellow to do the walking  The busy man can't eat with the lazy  man, and if he undertakes it he will kill  himself.   We have just so much  power  and if we use it up in thinking or acting  or cheating ourselves out of sleep we  can't   have   it  to  use  in stuffing  our  bread-baskets.    If we undertake both,  we will end quickly at the undertaker's.  Nature can and will throw off all disease  if we keep hands off and stop  the imprudence that has brought it on.    The  fight I am making is to rationalize the  practice of healing���to batter down the  false idea that nature can  be  ignored  and outraged and then cured in spite of  herself. The so-called science of materia  medica   would be better expressed  if  called the drug habit; it is a habit, and  a bad one, too, for patients are educated  into a blind  and  false  faith  in  drugs.  They are taught to rely  on drugs  and  live forever in ignorance of their own  duties to natural laws.    The drug habit  has become so much a part of the people  that they look with doubt and suspicion  on a treatment  without  drugs.    There  is a howl that rends the  welkin  when  some one dies under Christian  Science  treatment, but the drug  advocates can  keep   funeral   possessions in  constant  motion, year in and year out, without a  whispered   protest     If  a  patient  dies  under "science" treatment it is murder;  but if drugs have been administered  Providence does the  removing.    Christian Science can kill a patient all  right  by ignoring the disease and stuffing the  body, but before they become as great  murderers as the medicine healers they,  too,  will   have  to add drugs to their  potency.    So long as the state  legalizes  professional   murder   1   can't  see any  good reason why our Christian  Science  friends should not enjoy the sport in  equal freedom with our scientific friends  who  have  the   "science"   without the  Christian.     Both   these    friends   will  stand up and  deny any  responsibility  in   their   professional   murders   and I  grant that legally a man is not an  intentional criminal when he is  ignorant  of his crime, but that acknowledgment  does not alter the fact of criminal carelessness.   Food taken in excess of the  powers   of   digestion and assimilation  can  not  remain  in  the  system   inert.  Food can change as readily in ���die body  as it can out ofit, and when it does it is  just as poisonous inside of the  body as  on the outside of  il.    A beefsteak is  just as poisonous when  rotting in  the  stomach   and   bowels,  or after it has  gained access to the circulation, as I tf" is  on the meat block or scrap pile  at the  butcher's   shop,   provided   it does not  meet with proper digestion���if the digestive power is temporarily suspended;  or after it is digested and from an overworked   assimilation   life   can   not be  imparted to it.    Put me on record as  saying that, "It is impossible for a man  to'besick unless he has an  impaired  nutrition, and all cures of all  diseases  must be  brought about   by correcting  this impairment; and  it  can't  be done  by feeding���forcing the appetite "   It is  just as reasonable tb expect a' bone to  unite, after a fracture, if kept in motion.  Every dose of medicine that has a tangible effect on the system prolongs disease   and   lessens  the chances  for recovery.    A drug that has no effect is  superfluous and tends to  fasten   superstition  on  the patient and  physician)  The drug advocate is the same with  drugs as the religionist is with   prayer.  The former doesn't know if his patient  can get well without drugs or  not,  for  he   has   never   tried;   and   the   latter  doesn't know whether he can be  without prayer for he has never tried.  When I was a small boy I enjoyed  the circus the same as all boys do; my  people were good Christians' and were  opposed to such immoral shows, but  they believed that children should be  taken to see the animals 1 may be  mistaken, but as I remember it now, f  think we gave more time and attention  to the clowns than we ever did to the  monkeys; the same thing holds true  to-day. I like men, if they are clowns  or preachers or eveii doctors, better  than I. do monkeys. One Dan Rice or  Yankee Robinson is worth all the menageries in the world. 1 do not forget,  however, that I am indebted to the  monkey, (human as well as animal), for  my youthful privileges in the line of  attending   cireuseB      The   monkey   is  like the coating on a pill���it often stands  between good medicine and bad taste.  There was a sort of superstition in those  days that circus days were rainy ones���  good people who thought the menagerie  all right and the circus all wrong,  believed that Providence sent the rain  to  show the circus managers that He was  in opposition to their business.    Everybody went to see the animals if the day  was fine and this was the rule  of  our  household as well    I soon learned that  nothing would prevent my seeing the  circus except  rain, so when  a cii-cus  was  advertised I appointed myself a  commjttee ot one to petition the God "of  providence,   rain   and circus days, to  postpone any intention he  might  have  of sending rain along with  the  circus;  my promises and offers of compensation  for such favors  were in  keeping  with  such important matters.    I must have  been quite an influential  personage at  that time, for 1 do not remember that I  ever failed to have the day fine and the  show a great success.    My favorite place  for sending up my petitions was on  top  of the hay in the top of the barn.    I had  no mountains to climb that I might get  close to  the  Petitioned,  so  I got the  highest point I could   find  and   poured  out the desire of my  heart.    A  time  came when I began to lose faith in myself.     I   became  suspicious   that   niy  power with the Lord was not really as  great as I had supposed.    !   maae up  my mind to test the affair even  at the  risk of having a circus collide  with  a  rainy   day.   An   opportunity   came, a  circus was billed, and Trefused to pray;  the day came and so did  the  circus���  both great successes.   Since then I have  permitted the circus managers  to   run  their shows to suit themselves, and Providence to rule the weather according  to   nature's   plan  without any of my  advice.    This was the beginning of my  faith in nature, and to day I believe the  old world will   wabble   much   as   she  pleases in spite of flies, fleas and men.  Nature  will  never stultify  herself by  slipping a cog in answer to petitions of  any kind.    I slipped out from under the  load of responsibility of curing  people  with drugs and food m'nch in the same  way.    I assumed the  power  of curing  people for a good many years and   had  tins usual amount of ignorance and conceit about my divine power, but a. day  came with its doubts about my power  to set aside natural laws, then came a  season of testing and  proving  it:  this  run over a good long period, but I  finally found that I could do a great deal  of harm by  ofticiousness, and a great  deal of good by keeping out of nature's  way and keeping other obstructions out  of the way.   Drugs and prayers are on  much the same order���they undertake  and pretend to alter, change and substitute natural laws;  they,  like night,  are dispersed before light���reason.    In  25 years from now it will be hard to find  an enlightened person who will consent  toxswallow a drug.    In 100 years  from  now the drug superstition of to-day will  be looked upon as  we look  upon  the  stone god worship of the past.���Dr. ,1.  H. Tilden.
