NUMBER ��0  M LIFE /IS il  Mil',  tr^Sl  fi Lay  :$  Ml  Joseph   Howe,   the   Greatest  Canadian Orator.  A    FAMOUS    LTBEL    SUIT  Howe's  Wonderful   Oration at  the  International   Commercial  Convention.  "I shall depend upon tbe sober  second thought of my countrymen  to come right, at last, and do me  justice, and I hope that justico will  be done me by-and-by," said Joseph  Howe. After tbe neglect of thirty  years, tbe province which he loved  BO well will erect an enduring  monument to his memorj'. Nova  Scotia, boastful that she has been  the birthplace of more great men  than any other province, h approved singularly callous to her famous son. c Worshiping him at  first, some men turned their backs  on him, and heard his name with  hisses. The act which would be  considered by Canadians to-day the  wisest in the career of Howe ras  the sin which bis enemies could not  forgive. Howe opposed Confederation, therefore Canadians are unmindful of his claims upon theirre-  spect and honor ; Howe accepted  Confederation, so a faction in Nova  Scolia hated him.  Joseph   Howe   was  undoubtedly  ono   of   tho finest   characters  this  country has produced.    As an orator the only man who can   be compared with him is IVArcy   McC.ee,  and the Irishman was not a  Canadian in the sense   that   Howe   was.  Mr. Joseph Tope says'M him in his  "Lifo of Sir John  Macdonald,"   he  was incomparably tho greatest orator that British North America has  produced.,   Tho mo3t oloqno-U appeal evor mudo by  a Canadian was  that cf Joseph Howe   in   Detroit at  tho International Commercial Convention.    On that occasion  Howe's  oratory was such   that tho   United  Btntes delegates would havo decided  in favor of tho continuance  of the  Reciprocity  Tri-nty   had   tho   vote  beon taken on that  day.    And yet  in this magnificent orat'nn   Howe  repudiated    annexation,    Hung   it  back in the faces of the Americans  who  yet  luing  spellbound on his  >vords.    DiiHpllo tho   fuel  that   ho  was an Imperialist or the Imperialists, Howo wuh probably mom popular in Now England than iu any  part of Canada  outside  hiu native  province,    No man of iho day was  in greater demand at largo  gatherings in tho Eastern States,    lio did  not  think   of   tho   most  pleasant  things ho could  nay to  Aniorioans,  juul   l>in   Uoaton   spiechos   might  havo hoon dolivuod in Halifax. No  chiiraolorislu.   of   .Topqih    HowoV  was movo uiavked than his fearlessness,    Tha   pooplo   of Mm   United  Btates havo never failed to lovo nnd  respect this quality.    Uuda/.zkd by  tho   glare  of   parly polities,   thoy  formed a truer estimate of lliogreat  Canadian than tho mass of his own  noun try mon. ���  '  ��'ln Hit) timo of persecution," iu-  ono of Ids hiographci'H rather  vaguely cxprcHM'H il., four Howes  loft, England nnd Kittled in 'tin  United Stales.

On'iy oniiof thi.n),  Joseph's father,   o��n��no   Iho   King's  new home in Nova Scolia.  courtly, educated gentleman, his  ! worth was appreciated, and he was  everywhere respected. Never an  active politician, he "yet was honored by those who were, and was  made King's Printer and Po tmas-  ter-General of Nova Scotia. His  son Joseph was born in 1S03, and  received little regular education.  At the age of 13, he went into the  oflice of the Halifax Gazette as  printer's ''devil." For eleven years  he set type, wrote poems and  sketches, and mastered the somewhat varied accomplishments of a  journalist of the time. In 1S27 he  entered into partnership in another  newspaper, but sold out his share  within the year, and secured the  Nova Scotian for $5/2.50. He reported the debates in the Local Assembly himself, traveled about  forming agencies, and indulging  his love for verse. The famous  "Sam Slick" is said to have been  one of his contributors at the time.  Until 1835 Howe never spoke in  public. A libel suit was brought  against him in that year, and arrayed for th��e prosecution was able  legal talent. Howe defended himself, and it took the jury ten minutes to acquit him. At this time  there was not an incorporated city  in Canada.. Towns were governed  by magistrates appointed' by tbe  Crown, and in no way, responsible  to the people. Howe's attack on  the system landed him in prison,  and brought against him the charge  of libel. His speech destroyed the  icign of the magistrates, inaugurated responsible government in the  Lower Provinces, and established  the freedom of the press. The year  1S35 also saw Howe's entry to public life. His official record may be  briefly summarized. Until 1863 he  was a member of the Nova Scotia  Assembly almost continuously.  Twice he was Premier. In 18G3 he  was appointed Fisheries Commissioner ; in 18G7he was elected to  iho House of Commons. For eleven  months he was President of the  Privy Council, resigning to accept  at the hands of Sir John Macdonald tbo Secretaryship of State. In  1872 ho was m do Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scutia, an oflice he  held but a few months, whon hia  death occurred.  From the fact that Confederation  was tho most important event in  Canada's history, thero is a tendency to judge public mon who  touched tho great question by their  attitude toward it. In tho beginning Howo opposed it. Tho Nova  Sootia House, whilo ho was in Opposition, pledged tho provinco to  the noble vision, without appealing:  to tho country. In the olcolion of  I8(i7, bused on tbo Confederation  issue, tho Provinco ot Nova Scotia  returned only two members out of  !18 in favor of it. Secession was tho  cry and IIowo wub its mouthpioce,  The strife was bitter, Tho extremists called for armed rebellion, and  woro rebuked hy Howe in a nolablo  passage ; "I liopo lo live and dio(  for Nova Sootia, and must ho euro  ful for hor reputation and my own.  In all tho struggles of tho past for  the olovation and advancement of  our country, it has Leon my boast  that no lifo was lost nor a pano  of  Mclnnes and Qilmour on a Pilgrimage to  the Dominion Capital.  COAST CONSERVATIVES ARE HOPEFUL  Liberals Getting   Their   Candidates   in the Field���Conservatives Desirous   of  Inducing the Best Hen in Their Ranks to Run���Vancouver  Labor Men Will Not Fuss With the Liberals.  The political situation, while it  cannot be said to be active, possesses one or two noteworthy features.  It develops that the coast Liberals  do not know exactly where they  are at, and in order to definitely  locate themselves have sent two envoys to Ottawa. Just what may  be the exact nature of this mission  is not yet manifest. The two gentlemen leferred to are Hon. W. W.  B. Mclnnes and Hugh Gilmour.  Some believe that Mr. Mclnnes has  gone'to the capital to make his  peace with Laurier, and incidentally arrange for the sinews of war,  while' others suppose he may be  acting in conjunction with Mr.  Gilmour in an endeavor to reinstate .Joseph Martin in the good  graces of the Liberal leaders. ��� It is  well known that the Liberal leaders at Ottawa are not friendly towards Mr. Maitin, and it ia suspected they would rather see a Conservative government in power in  British Columbia than a Liberal  administration dominated by the  man to whom more than' any one  else they are indebted for po.wer.  Mr. Martin has not felt that ho has  been treated altogether fairly by  Sir Wilfrid, and it is believed, if he  hod the power to do bo, he would  promulgate legislation that would  sooner or later disintegrate the  Liberal party. Therefore, the  question now is, has Mr. Martin  sent MossrB. Mclnnes and Gilmour  to Ottawa to malco peace with tho  Luurior govommont and give bonds  for futuro good behavior, or has  Mr. Mclnnes gono down to tho  capital in his own bohalf ? In tlio  moantimo, tbo Liberals aro moving  with groat caution, and although  organising horo and thoro, aro not  as active as it might bo oxpeotod  thoy would bo.

Fort  Steele Conservatives seem anxious  to have J. A. Harvey lead the  party, although it has been stated  that Mr. Harvey positively declines  to accept the honor. 11. L. T. Gal-  braith haB been mentioned, and  there is a strong rumor afloat that  friends of Government Agent Armstrong are active in that gentleman's, behalf. James Ryan is still  a favorite with many in Cranbrook,  but he has publicly deolared that  he wanted none of it.  Cranbrook Liberals aro discussing tho political situation, and have  decided to call a convention tho  first part of July to place a candidate in the Held.  It is likely that John L. Jtotal-  lick will run in tho Liboral interest  for Kaslo.  Moyio organized  a Liboral-Con-  sorvativoolub luet Tuesday night.  Dr. J. H. King is tho Liberal  favorite in Cranbrook district,  whilo some aro inclirod to boliovo  that W. F. Gurd, would mako a  good run,  this is due to the activity of the  candidates and their friends, but  there is a strong desire on the part  of men not affiliated with either  party to have their names on the  list. In Nelson there have been  nearly 400 names placed upon the  list, about half of what it is expected the entire vote will be.  Rossland Conservatives are anxious to have Mr. Goodeve run for  for that city. Mr. Goodeve is one  of the ablest speakers in the Kootenays, and would add greatly to the  debating strength of the Conservative party in the Local House.  The desperate straits to which  the Liberala have been reduced in  order to make some kind of a show  at the elections may be seen by the  overtures made by them to the  Trades and Labor Council in Vancouver, to form a Labor-Liberal Alliance, and to nominate candidates  in accordance. Remembering the  opposition successfully waged  against them by the Liberals in the  Dominion byo-olcction hold in Bur-  rard some months ago, the Labor  men have emphatically declined  such an alliance And rightly, too.  Tho Liberals have ever been notorious for their coquetry with tho  Labor vote, but this timo tho scheme  is a littlo too rough. Tho Grits aro  up against it.���Slocan Drill.

Do not ncglnot to regintor your  voto. VoIch will bo in great demand on election day.  Frank Marquis and Geo. Gilbert arrived in Kaslo en Tuesday  morning from the Lardo with the  evidence of a gold find which casts  everything heretofore discovered in  this district completely in the  shade, says the Kootenaian. They  brought with them pieces of quartz  that are more than one-half gold.  These specimens will run in values  to the ton up to figures almost incredible, $100,000 to the ton being  mentioned as a low estimate for  some of the samplee shown. In a  tin can brought down there was in  the neighborhood of $100 worth of  gold. Mr. Marquis, who is a reliable and experienced prospector,  states that they have over $100,000  worth of ore in sight, putting it at  one-half of what he is confident  would be realized with but a little  work. He says that he has at a  very low estimate over a ton of ore  to be sacked that will give returns  of at least the above stated amount.  One has only to see the orebrought  down to believe the statements  made.  The property which is called the  Gold Park and Ophir group of two  claims, is located on Poplar creek,  a tributary of the Lardo river, nnd  is about one mile from the Arrowhead & Kootenay railway, about  twenty miles from Lardo.  The find was made while doing  assessment work. A number of  open cuts have been made, in all of  which good ore has been uncovered,  giving fair values, but nothing like  this find was mot with.  Tho ore is white quartz and carbonates, carrying largo quanties of  free gold and chloride of gold. Tho  vein from whioh this ore was taken  is about seven inches wide, widening out in places to ten inches, the  wholo ganguo boing impregnated  with filigreo gold. Tho vein has  boon uncovered in places for several  hundred foot.  Tho owners camo to Kaslo to procure supplies, mortars and Backs to  sack tho oro.  Parties are boing formed to proceed to tho scene of tho find, and  fortunato gontlomen aro in no way  backward in giving assistance to  any others who may wish to participate in thoir good luck by making additional locations.  Tlio country is heavily timbored  and tho immediate vicinity is  rough and precipitins. Thoro ip  no doubt that this is tho samo  sourco from which tho largo quantities of placer gold found in tho  Lardo river has originated. Numerous rich finds havo boon made  on the I. -I'!,�� and its tributaries of  gold quartz carrying good values,  but nothing approaching   this   has  over beon mot with.  The Htriko  is   about  forty miles  from   Kaslo   and  is   not  far from  Tenderfoot    and   Meadow   creeks,  whoro    good   properties   aro   now  worked.    On Tenderfoot Creole Mr.  Jan. Itulhorford is  developing   tbo  property  of  tho    Lardeau    Valley  Mines, hoinn in  tho nanio mineral  bolt and having oro exactly iiimilar  in character.     An average  sample  of the  carbonate?, which  is  filling  j the vein brought  down   from   this  strike  was  submitted   to   Mr. Ed.  Bedolpb, assayer at Kaslo, by Mr.  Jas. Rutherford and gave the enormous value of 595  ounces  in gold,  which is eleven thousand.nine hundred dollars a ton.     They are also  in   the same mineral  belt  as the  Ophir-Lade and  the  properties  of  the     Northwestern    Development  Syndicate,  all  of which have   the  same character of ore.  The Poplar creek gold strike continues to  absorb  the  attention of  everyone.      Business   men,   office  men and miners  all being equally  interested.     Groups   of   men   are  &een on the streets of Kaslo excitedly examining specimens of the rock  brought down Tuesday by  Messrs.  Marquis and Gilbert.    All kinds of  water conveyances are  being utilized to convey the  eager gold hunters to the scene of the find.    Many  who had apparently little  interest  in the strike slipped   away for   the  creek.    Parties headed  by Al. Palmer, Jack Reuter, Jim Spiers, Billy  Moulseand Pete Kelly have all left.  Pete Kelly secured   the tug Hercules arid persuaded George Gilbert to  accompany him, which gives Kelly  a great  rdvantage.    At Lardo it is  reported that anything   that would  roll on the trails was commandeered  and taken on as far as theconditiou  of the railway   bed   would   permit.  Dan   McPhail   and J.  Gillis have  left for Bear��� Lake   and it is stated  that they crossed over the divide to  the head of Poplar  creek   and are  now  first on the ground.  ��� T. G. Procter has just 'returned"  foom Blairmore and several points  in East Koofenaj', where he. has  been for the last month looking  after his coal interests. Mr. Procter  and his associates are actively engaged in developing their property.  They are building a spur from the  railroad into the mine, a distance  of a quarter of a mile. At present  they are hauling the coal by wagon,  and shipping from 60 to 70 tons  per day. This output will be increased to 200 tons per day and  within six months to 500 tons. The  quality of the coal is superior to  any yot discovered in the coal districts. Mr. Procter says tho crops  around McLeod and Calgary aro  in splendid condition, and the outlook for another prosperous year  could not bo moro encouraging.  J. E. Amiable, manager of tho  Nelson Opera House, has been  called east on account of thoeoriouB  illness of his mother, who is now  78yoarBof ago.

Next Wednesday the Dominion   of Canada  will reach the SGth mlestone along the road of  her national existence.    The progress made in  thoso   36   years   has   ceitainly   justified   the  hopes of the Fathers of Confederation.    Of the  men who took the leading part in the greatest  t-vent in Canada's  history there are'less than  half-a-dozen     left,      but    Canadians     have  built for ihem all in their   hearts monuments  more enduring   and grander than  shafts   of  marble.    The Empire bad no  more  patriotic  sons than the men who gathered the few straggling provinces together and shaped   them   in  one grand cohesive part of  the  greatest Emigre   tbe  sun   ever  shone   upon.    Therefore,  Canadians are not  called   upon   lo   apologize  for   their   almost   divine   reverence   for   the  fathers of the'r country, as   they   join in love  together   to   the   inspiriting   strains   of  "The  Mupie Leaf Forever."  No one can contemplate without interest the  awakening of Great Britain to a realization of  herself as the head of a world-embracing Empire      It   is   as   though   the    brain     were  slow    to    recognize    that   those vast  limits  which lie outstretched around   the globe, pul-  utting with growing powor, are indeed  a part  ol' ono and the same gigantic prgauii-m.    The  gradual perception of the new conditions is necessarily accompanied by a  reconsideration of  m.iiiy jiinduuiuntiil principles of  constitution  and government, and. the effort.to maintain ed-.  lublitdiod and accepted theories under circutn-  stniionri   never   known   before.    Take   Great  iJiiiniii'd free trade policy, a policy which   in  the mind   of tlie unlravelled  ICnglishman hits  nlr:i<>f.i acquired tho sanctity of ono of tho Ion  oumnwuidments.     Tlie  principle   underlying  this  |Nlicy is sound,   and   free   mule can bu  dciiiiiiihtrated   to bo   tl.o   ideal   condition   of  lliingv, as easily aa the poet's dtuam of universal peace.    Is it to bo  wondered   at   that  thu  lCnglifhinun of limited   ob.-erviilion, who   bus  ���breathed fieo trado nil bis life, nnd whoso pro-  juiiiics and   reason   nro   united   in support of  tint  doctrine, should   listen  with   littlo sympathy when invited   to consider   whether Iho  now cuiidiiions do not justify a policy of Imperial protection ?    To him  th s seems like it  retmgruflsion towards b.irbarism.    It will need  ti  i ,   and    a   wider   understand.ng  of   tho  world's development, before ho cm learn lhat  closer commercial unity within tho whulo Empire  .,- but n step, taken at a temporary  cost,  Imvnrils tho desired climax uf world wiibi   free  trade.    Kctforring again to tho parallel of universal peace, it has beon frequently urgd that  nothing would moro surely tend   to lhat end,  limn  lhat tho world should bo  dominated by  nn all powerful Anglo-Saxon union, bunt upon  maintaining peace at all cost. Ho, a hnniioniuuH  combine of tho different units constituting Iho  Hrilihh Empire, reciprocating   between   tbem-  h-Ivih for  tbo conservation   of  the   I.nipire'ii  triidi*, and offeiing to uuttdiln nntiouH  an open  door on  reciprocal terms, holds the   iho.-hI certain  promise of cv-MiUinlly  bringing   n!l   iho  trading   nations of   lliu   world into one fPind  free  trado pnrtiiortdiip.    It    was   confident y  j.rojjhtmod in lonuor dny a that tho adoption  by Eri&hiiiti ml a fra> trado policy would bo  shortly followed by the abandonment of protection principles in other countries, that the  force cf good example would bring about this  result. No one need be told to-day how little  this prophe?y has been fulfilled. The leaven  of the p.pw thought is-at present working  mightily in England, and whether Mr. Chamberlain will see the consummation of hi3 hopes  or not, he is certainly rousing the people to  the point of viewing the new and wide prospect lhat lies before them. The future no  man Ciin foresee, but those who believe that  the growth and solidarity of the Anglo-Saxon  race tends to benefit the world at large, will  view the movement for commercial cohesion  within the Empire with satisfaction.  A man calling himself Fred. Starkey, and  said to hail from one of the prairie villages in  Manitoba, has wiihout authority from the  Nelson Conservative Association signed his  name to a communication which presumptuously assumes to speak on behalf of that organization. This fellow Starkey, who less than  a year ago claimed that he was a greater political factor than hia master, would be conferring a special benefit on this community by  giving hia overworked j iw a well-earned vacation. When the Conservatives of Nelson  need advice, they are not likely lo turn to  flatulent political weathercocks in their extremity.  The Liberal papers throughout the province  find in the editorial columns of the Tribune a  never failing source of supply ol campaign  literature. The harrowing spectacle of a paper published by a man who holds the oflice  of president of tbe Provincial Conservative  Association openly expressing disapproval, of  the methods of the party's leaders could only  be witnessed in British Cjlumbia.  The wisdom of the selection of Mr. R. S.  Lennie as their standard-bearer by the Conservatives of Nelson is daily becoming more  apparent. Mr. Lennie is making a vigorous  campaign and meeting with greater success  than he anticipated. Thia is the day of  young men, and Conservatives in other portions of the province would be only acceding  to the demands of the times by placing  young men in the field. The old men will  have to go 'way back and sit down.  There if a great deal of interest being taken  in the voters' lists, our Liberal friends being  particularly active. Nei ertheless, when the  time comes to close tbe lists it will probably  be found that tbo Conservative vote greally  predominates. Now is tho time for all truo  Conservatives to register.  Tho Liberal candidate, Mr. S. S. Taylor,  K. C, is making a personal canvass, and is  looking particularly happy under tho circumstances.

To-day in the Kootenays and Boundary districts there is no mistaking the strength of  public opinion in favor of raising the tariff so  as to afford adequate protection to the mining  industry. Those in favor of protection need  uot waste time in imploring the Liberal party  at Ottawa to introduce the necessary legislation.  Kootenay Mail.  The immense railway development that is  about to take place in Canada affords the opportunity of the establishment of the iron and  steel industries at the Pacific coast. With its  extensive iron deposit, and abundance of fuel  the iron and steel manufacture should shortly  become one of the most important industries of  British Columbia.  Trail Creek News.  That petrel of politics, Mr. Joseph Martin,  has uttered the solemn plati'.ude, "Principles,  not men." This must mean that as long as  the party platform is all right the characters  of the candidates are of little or no importance. If it does mean that, it is a reasonless  and pernicious thing to say. There is no political principle or set of principles of which  the profession of and possession by men in  power can give us good government. That can  be assured only by personal character.  Morrissey Despatch. ��  The party paper which treats of lh�� issue3  with candor, admitting mistakes of tbe party  it supports, and gividg due credit to that  which is deserving of merit on the part of the  opposition, such a paper will accomplish more  for its own party and fill its obligations to the  public infinitely better than a rabid, through-  thick-and thin paper. The senseless policy of  supporting a certain party through habit, or  through hereditary inclinations, is about on a  par with, and is often the cause of, such a policy as above outlined.  Victoria Colonist.  It is quite possible for a political party to  promulgate doctrines incompatible wjth conscience and judgment of some of ils.adherents.  It then becomes their painful duty to leave  their party. But it is very seldom anything  of the kind happens, in any party, the association of whose members flows from well-defined  principles. The Liberal-Conservative party  of Canada is io well founded upon sound and  consistent political doctrine not to appeal with  strength to the loyalty of its adherents. And  it is too democratic in its constitution not to  we'.como and reward the ability and efforts of  everyone who gives il loyal support. A party  is no more than a method of moulding the  policy of the country to the enlightened will  of iho people, in whoco hands under democratic government the destiny of tho country  is laid.

ANOTHER   DOG  STORY.  Sbls Is About Intelligent Don. Who Zjovea  to Work as \Vtll as Play.  Probably one of tho busiest dogs in Massachusetts is Don, for besides the usual occupations that till tho lifo of every right  minded dog ho faithfully supei-intcuda  tho whole of his master's beautiful farm.  Wherever business calls Mr. Brown, in  pasture, sugar grove, cornfield or barn,  Chore you will llml Don, dashing after a  refractory cow, running up u ladder to  ioiuo high loft for hay or standing guard  over properly left in his charge, and every,  where taking his full thiire of tho work,  his master mcnmvhila talking,' with him  wow and then or giving hiiu instructions  lu the same pleasant tono in which he  epeuks to his other friends.  All this time Don never seems to have a,  thought  of anything  but  his work, but  when   there  comes  a  leisure  hour on  rainy day, or sifter tho chores aro done,  likes  notlilng   better than   to entertain  roomful of  people with  his clever trick  Ho litis never  known anything but kin  uud  encouraging  words,   and   is  nlwu.  ready to do his   best, partly no  doubt  b  causo ho finds It bring* �� reward.    At his  master's quiet bidding  ho opens or closes  doors, runs on  errands, stands, walks or  rolls over the floor.  Then he bows his head  on   his  paws  upon   a chair aud  says his  prayprs  until   released  by  tho   expected  "Amen."  He makes an amusing picture.aa ho  waits for permission to eat a bit of cracker  resting upon his paw.  "You mustn',t touch it, Don," says Mr.  Browu waruingly. "That cost lots- of  money. Just eco what a lino big piece it  te!"  Don looks much impressed by the costliness of tho littlo feast before him. ''Of-  course," he seems to say, "a mero hardworking dog liko mo cannot oxpect to indulge in such luxuries." Ho gazes  thoughtfully at the cracker and romalns  motionless, with his noso three inches  from tho tempting morsel.  ''Yes," continues his master, "that is  an uncommonly nice piece of cracker, and  it's paid for, Don."  Instantly tho tidbit disappears down a  ravenous throat, and, with a leap to tho  ground, Don is ready for moro fun.���-Our  Animal Friends.  Hho CoTrardly Dark.

The Fargo college at Fargo is one of tha  educational strongholds of Congregationalism in tho state. It is prettily located  In tho south part of the city on a height of  land overlooking Island park and faoing  the city beyond. Miss Annio I*. Adams  holds tho position of preceptress, teacher  of modern languages and English literature. Miss Adams was born in the old  Xutmog State of New England, and, although having lived there but a, very little  herself, 6ho inherits the strong provincial  characteristics of her sturdy ancestors. On  her paternal sido .lohn Adams was a near  relativo and on tho maternal side sho can,  ��nd proudly too, trace back to the Plimpton family of England as hor ancestors.  Miss Adams is pleasing to meet. In  build sho is tall and slender with dark  hair and eyes. Whilo her articulation and  accent aro incomparably clear and perfect  there is a subtle something about it that  makes ono mentally ask, Did you always  livo in Connecticut, whon the conversation brings to light the fact that her father was a ruissiojinry among tha Bohemians nnd tho family moved to Prague,  Austria, when Miss Adams wai a mere  bubo, and for ton years thoy lived there.  Sho waa educated entirely in German, but  MISS ANNIE L. ADAMS.  learned English and Bohemian.-. Her home  for later years has been in Chicago, and  thoro in the high school sho received her  English education, afterward graduating  at Lako Forest and then attending tho  Chicago university.  Miss Adams is alive to all current interests of tho day and is ever on tho alert  for all of good that can bo accomplished  by and for tho young women under her  euro. A long strotoh of lifo apparently lies  before this young woman. Sho haa already  accomplished much in hor chosen profession for ono so young, and is dostined to  bo in tho rank and file of advancing workers with the coming years.���Mary A.

Miss Mat lies is a Nelson  favorite,   ami   her   visits   are   always  looked forward to with pleasure. Since j  L-aving here last summer she has made |  a tour of California, and her   performances have met with great   favor.
