NOTE AND COMMENT.  It looks almost as if the Crow's Nest  Pass railway project was going to develop into a second Pacific scandal.  The exposure in the World of the  little scheme for grasping not only the  right of ,way, hut also the coal and  coal oil fields existing in th.j pass, in  which two of the proprietors of the  Glode are implicated, has apparently  caused quite a flutter in ministerial  ranks, and they seem to he inclined to  adopt a policy of masterly inactivity  on. the matter as a consequence. It  reads almost like a satire on. the principles of modern government, when  one sets the situation down in black  iinel white. Here is a road, acknowledged on all hands to he a necessity  in order to secure to this nation the  full benefits of the wealth which recent  discoveries in Kootenay have poured  into her hip. There are two courses  open to the government, one to let the  O.P.B. build it and I he other to build  it themselves. They *������vre afraid to  adopt the first for fear of .offending  the people. They are afraid to adopt  the second for fear of offending the  railway. And so they ultimately  decide to do nothing and to let Spokane get the trade of South Kootenay,  without let or hindrance.* :If this is  government, we might almost as well  have anarchy.  It may be a small matter. In fact  The' Herald is willing to concede  that it is one -of the smallest things,  which'have coine beneath its ken for'  some time. But the situation is just  this. A sum, which will barely suffice  has been.appropriated by1 the Dominion House to the improvement of the.  river just'above Revelstoke. .It is of  great consequence* to^ this place'that  the. work should he done iis thoroughly as possible, and to that, end." it is  imperative that not a penny"should be  wasted. One would have thought that  every public ,spirited man in ��������� Revelstoke. who had any say in the matter  at all would have insisted upon this  ���������point'without-reference-to any.'other  consideration whatever. * Beit,what do  we find?-, On pretexts'best kuown to  the local dispensers "of.peilitie-al patronage, since tliey, mid they-alone, can  have engineered the appnintnic-nt, and  their reasons for so doing, must on the"  face of it'be* purely private and per-  seltial, the management of the work  has been given to a gentleman, against  whom , personally Thk Herald has  nothing to say, but whose share iu the  management will owing to his .lack of  previous experience in this kind of  work have to be co'ufined to keeping  tlie time of the men. In other words  our small appropriation for this work  has to be made to carry the salary of  a-totally-f unnecessary--^ t*ficial,-because_  uf these private reasons of; tho local  wire-pullers, who have secured the ap-  F.ointment. The case is iu a -nutshell,  f this gentleman is to be foreman, he  is incompetent, and Revelstoke. cannot afford to have any of this small  appropriation wasted 'by inconi-  petencej if he is simply to have a  vague general superintendence with a  practical foreman under him, he~is unnecessary, and Revelstoke ' cannot  afford to have uny of this stnall'nppro-  priation consumed in the payment, of  the salaries of superfluous officials.  . THOMSON'S LANDING.

It is to he shipped to the* .Nelson  smelter.  Mi-s. H. Mr Needham drove a dog  sleigh freni Thomson's Landing to Arrowhead, and claims to he the first  lady to drive over the ice this season.  Mr. arid Mrs. T. W.'Grahamc.'of the  Exchange, have* returned from a visit  to Kamloops. They brought back a  little ftranger with them. He is a line  bouncing boy aud weighs 12 lbs.  Miss Mary McDowell, of Kanileuips.  sister to Mrs. T. W. Grahame is visiting at the Landing.  Mrs. J. Foley anel Miss Anna Valentine of 'Arrowhead, paid the Landing  a visit yesterday. They came over on  one of the sleighs, and pronounce  sleighing on the ice just splendid.  Teams can now he driven from Arrowhead to Trout Lake.  ,The Atlantic' an extension of the  Abbot has been bonded by J. C. Kirk-  patrick to eastern parttesfor, $10,000.  -Mining exports and representatives  of companies aieconstanlly coming in  and half a dozen more deals are on the  tapis.' From appearances-there will be  but few miues or prospects of any  merit in either L**rdeau or Trout Lake  that will not be bought or bonded by  mid-stuiinier. .      ,       -  .A. E. Kincaid, anil Billy Nutter came,  down from their., claim oh the north  side of the Arm todny. They brought  down a sack of fine looking ore which  they in tend* to send ���������' to Revelstoke.  Your correspondent examined the ore  and was* surprised to see such large  i'liuhks of nearly solid galena." Judging from the specimens they  working in a lead that has about. S  inches of nearly "solid ore' - '' '    -'  Billy Glenn arrived from' Trout  Lake today. ' He reports the Trout  Lake Temperance Lodge in a flourishing condition.

When he showed signs  nf weakening Billy shouted to him to  hold on, it would be a������ good as the*  Keely cure. At.'Iast after trying to  stand on his heacl, Barney came down  on all fours, and then jumped sideways  throwing Paddy headlong into a snow  drift six feet deep. Th's closeel  obligation service, anel the lodge adjourned to meet,next week.  __,_Tho.iiis_on.'s Landing, March 1, 1897. .  THE BIG FIVE.  One   of   the   Latest   Big    Strikes   on  Lardeau   River.  Although this lead was one of the*  latest discovered on Lardeau Creek,  it is one for which prospectors had  been looking for the previous five  years, on account of the great richness of the flout found in the gulch at  the head of the Lardeau River above  which the lead lies. This float con-.  siste*d of a silver copper glance, which  in one instance assayed as high as  SOOO oz. of silver to the ton. The lead  was finally located last summer by L.  Thompson, H. Carter and J. Kirk -  patrick just above tlie timber line on  the mountain at the head of the  gulch. The lead is a contact of slate  and lime, a characteristic of all the  best leads in that part of the country.  The ledge is from 12 to 20 feet wide,  carrying a large body of silver copper  glance, * galeua, iron and copper.  Assays from the lead have gone from  80 oz. to 8000 oz. in silver, besides considerable gold, copper aud lead. The  property has been bonded to Messrs.  Macpherson and Snowden for $100,000,  who did some development work last  fall, and -will commence again this  season. This lead will prove another  shipper for Ferguson this year.

To  Sir,���������Do ever people talk until you  feel bilious? Now Mr. Haggen was  one of the speakers at the public meeting called on March 22nd, and made a  very nice cut aud dried speech with  others of the* fad. 1 think once when  I was up I told Mr. Haggen that he  was evidently there for business purposes., Now. Mr.'Haggen snys in your  issue of March 3rd, that he believes in  the minority loyallj* submitting to the  decision of the" majority. Then Sir,  when he found the sentiments and  votes of the first public meeting were  overwhemingly against incorporation,  why did he, Mr. Haggen, allow himself tct be-made, chairman .of such a  fiasco "as the second meeting turned  'out to be.

To his surprise he found two golel  nuggets, and immediately a quiver of  excitement ran through the town.

Provincial   Government  Ap-  .   pears to Public men on the Outside.  Thk Herald gathere'd in conversation with Mr. Young, editor of the .Calgary Herald,, that the people of  Alberta particularly in the towns of  Edmonton, Macleod and Calgary, are  taking a. keen interest in-Kootenay  mining affairs. Several mining and  development syndicates have been  forme 1 in -- Calgary and more ��������� will  follow. Besieies capital Alberta has  contr-'huted a considerable number of  ent'erprising'citizens to this country;  in fact there .is scarcely a town in  ,Koot������nay where old Alberta pioneers  cannon be found occupying prominent  positions. . Mr. Young believes that  Alberta is on the eve of prosperous  time's, owing to the recent reduction  in freight rates by the C.P.R., the  building of tne Crow's Nest Pass railway and the excellent markets.for  farm priduce opening up throughout  the mil ing- districts. Alberta can  produce - and is producing * in large  i.iuuititie s some of the best beef. oats,  fodder, b ltter and other-produce in  the world and Kootenuy furnishes her  principal marke-t.  As to the scheme mooted some time  iigoof provincial union between Alberta  and Brit'sh Columbia, Mr. Young  states that the people to the east of us  were at f rst disposed lo regard it  favorably nit since looking into the  unsatisfacl -jry state of B. C's. politics  they have 1 ropped nil idea of such a  union uriti, we secure a less extravagant gover lment more in -touch with  the peopl*. "You have a population,"  he said, ������������������not much larger than we  have in the Territories and yet your  government spends annually about  six times as much as ours.does. This  would not be so bad if the money was  wisely and economically spent but I  notice that on what should be the  mor.t important items, namely education aud public improvements such as  roads and bridges, you spend actually  very little more, than we do in the  Territories. Perhaps you are so accustomed to this sort of thing that it  doesn't trouble you much but to an  outsider it seems a piece of extraordinary folly, that your expenses of government should actually amount to mote,  than you spend on schools and general  improvements. , Provincial government is a good thing hut as you have  j it in B. C. it seems to consist more in  J the abuse than the use of it."  -   THEr"NEW_YORK   MARKET.---*".  Today's Quotations in the . Metal ,Mar-  '   .   '"ket. \    V ",'   '    '  New York.

Sir,'���������I will thank you to allow mc  space in your valuable paper for this  district of British Columbia.  - I notice a great deal of talk has  been going the rounds since the last  meeting of the ratepayers about incorporation���������the echoes of some of the  spouters in favor of' incorporation.  Now, Sir, their movements seem to  me to be a kind of a stumbling block  'that they are wanting to put in the  way of out* few young men in this part  of the district, who are seeking ine-or-  poration for the water anil electric  light company.' I am glad to see our  water system and also our'electric  plant arc getting into the hands of  young men that have been very prosperous in anything they have taken  in hand in the past iu this part of the  country, which cannot be said of some  of the parties that are advocating incorporation.  Again, Sir, they had better get that  chairman, whom they were so keen to  put in the chair at the last meeting  to help them out. and if he knows no  more about it than he did about occupying the chair their cause will not  bo any further advanced for many  years, let alone months.  There is one thing more lhat I would  like the ratepayers to know, and that  is. when we are ripe for incorporation,  let us place men in the council that  will be strictly against Mongolian  labor' as some of the advocates of the  above cause* at present have,been in  the past favoring that labor to a certain extent.

MARCH 0,    1S07.  A DOUBLE BARRELLED GUN  There aro  papers and  some American nows-  Arnerican  politicians  who can talk more rubbish to the  square inch,  than   any   other   so  tailed thought conveyers known  t -j    humanity.    " The    grievance  Under which the greatest republic  "on  airth" labours today is   the  Cinadian "alien" workman who is  employed in the   United   States,  but who has his abode in Canada.  They overlook the fact  that  he  leaves the equivalent of his wages  in honest  labour, and   gives   far  more value for his money than is  given for the millions of American  dollars which  are yearly traded  off for' English titles.    It seems a  little inconsistent to applaud the  efforts of Miss   Gotrox   to-buy a  husband with her father's millions  fiuil at the same time to attack the  honest artisan who receives a fair  ���������lay's  pay   for   an   honest  day's  work.     They  overlook   also   the  established axiom that it is a very  poor rule which cannot be made to  work both ways.   There are today  in    British    Columbia,    a    large  number  of  Americans"1 who   are  allowed far greater privileges of  citizenship than any Canadian has  ever been allowed   on the other  side, and the utterances of silly  newspapers    aud   windy   orators  must necessarily create a feeling  that  Canada   should    confer   no  greater privileges   on   Americans  than   America    grants   to   Canadians.       While     Canada     has  always welcomed and assisted any  inan who will lend a hand iu the  development of the country, she at  all events will not overlook  the  fact that there is vast wealth iu  British      Columbia,     and     that  British Columbia is her sole and  undivided  property, and that it  would be a very simple matter to  enact a reciprocal alien law which  would very seriously affect some  of our "alien" guests at Rossland  und other Kootenay points.    We  give our American cousins credit  _f or auaverage aniouiit-of-common-  seuse, and a plentiful supply of  horse sense, and we believe that  tliey  can   best    show    that   our  estimate is  justified   by,a   quiet  suggestion from some   person   iu  authority  to Mr.   De  Barrey to  "come   off'   as   quietly  and    ex-  pcdiously as may be.  A CANDID FRIEND  Mr. A. C. Fraser, who succeeds  lion. Mr. Sifton as member for  ?*"orth Biandon in the Manitoba  Legislature, made his first appearance in the house as mover of the  address. In a practical and honestly worded speech Mr. Fraser  referred to some matters of public  interest, so as to call forth upon  him a column of ill-temuered and  uhusive matter from the Winnipeg Tribune, the organ of his own  party. In the course of his  lemarks he objected to the publication by cercain Liberal newspapers of bills of particulars yet  u n proven and possibly unprovable,  as "unjust, indecent and unfair'"  ���������and very properly reminded his  hearer-** that "a man might go  vigorously into an election campaign and work early and late  and finally find his name in a bill  of particulars without the slightest  justification for it3 being there."  This blow, coining from a Liberal,  lias broken the Tribune's back.  The publication by that paper of  the bills of particulars in the  Macdonald and Winnipeg election  cases was naturally the i subject  of much adverse comment at. the  time by Liberals as well as Conservatives, but no prominent  denunciation of this instance of  progressive journalism took place  until Mr. Fraser described it as  '���������unjust, indecent and unfair"���������a  description which no more than  fully fills the bill. Nor was it  more than just to the farmers of  Manitoba that the statements  made by the so-called representatives of the farming community  before the Tariff Commissioners  at Winnipeg should not be allowed  to go uncontradicted, and, the  honest and thrifty farmers of  Manitoba will thank Mr. Fraser  for his exposure of tho libels which  have* been uttered by partisans  actuated by political bias, for the  purpose of making, political capital, against one of the best provinces in the Dominion. It would  be interesting to 'know whether  tho men who appeared before the  Tariff Commissioners a mouth ago  are the same men who only a year  ago atth'e Immigration Convention  spoke of the province as a land of  milk and honey, aud boasted of  the thousands of dollars which  they had made from wheat growing. The Herald is at present  enquiring into this matter and  will deal with it another time.  The reply of the Tribune to Mr.  Fraser's well-deserved strictures  is extremely weak, aud exceedingly vulgar. Commenting on his  reference to to the publication of  the bill of particulars, it reminds  him that Hon. Mr. Martin publicly  offered to substantiate the Winnipeg charges in any court of  justice (at the same time he knew  that it was utterly impossible  for him to .carry out his offer) anel  suggests, in view of this brilliant  explanation, that "Mr. Fisher  should be willing to allow a small  shaving to be taken from his head  with a jack plane without in any  way impairing his mental capacity." The jack plane of public  opinion having had no visible  effect on the rhinoceros-like epidermis of the Tribune, it feels .-justified in prescribing for its political  friends. 11 is a matter for congratulation, however,.to lind that  after all there ate Liberals and  Liberals, though wo confess our  partiality for those of Mr. Fraser's  type. The example which ho has  sot is one which might bo followed with advantage on both sides  oF the house. "Neither political  party" to use Mr. Fraser's words  "has a mouopoly of vice or virtue",  and it is always advisable to do  your own house cleaning before  criticizing the condition of your  neighbour's. Mr. Fraser has begun well, and it is to be hoped  that he will continue so. lie will  find ample scope as he becomes  more intimate with the methods  of modern politics. Even now he  has been abused by the Tribune,-  and any man might be proud of  that.        CONDENSED MTLK  The Winnipeg Free l'ress  recently received an inquiry from  a United manufacturing  firm statiDg that they had proposals from a Canadian firm for  the erection of a complete plant  of machinery for the, manufacture  of condensed milk in the North  West, and asking to be placed iu a  position to select a suitable location. Whether present conditions  admit of the existence of a condensed milk factory in the West  or not, there is no question that  the raining districts will rec-nire  a large supply of condensed milk,  as the nature of the country in  the mining regions makes the  keeping*of cattle there nn impossibility. The question of a condensed milk factory in Alberta  has already been thought of and  is one worthy of continued consideration.  ���������Calgary Herald  THE EGG IN THE  CROW'S NEST  Our 'despatches during the past  fortnight shew a seeming difference of opinion at Ottawa as to  tne construction of the Crow's  Nest Pass Railway. The matter  had been entrusted to the subcommittee of the Cabinet, consisting of Mr. Blair, Sir Oliver Mowat  and Mr, Sifton. It was reported  that whilo Mr. Blair was anxious  that the Government should build  and operate the road, his colleagues were opposed to his views,  believing that the road should be  built and operated by the C. P. 11.  Tho Globe, which is the official  organ of the Government, has now  tcorue out plainly for C. P. It. construction, and is followed by a  suggestive editorial in the Free  Press, in wliich, although the construction of the road by the C. P.  R. is not advocated in so many  words, tho meaning is obvious.  The Winnipeg Tribune has also  received an inspiration which  causes it to believe that the road  could be best constructed, by the.  big transcontinental line. Meanwhile the C. P. R. has purchased  00,000 tons of steel rails in Pittsburg and has let contracts for an  enormous number ot ties'.  It may be safely assumed -that  notwithstanding the plainly expressed of the people in the  West, and the distinct pledges of  of Ministers (hat tho Government  should build and operate the road,  it will after all fall to the C. P. R.,  which is evidently as influential  with the Liberal party as it was  with the Conservatives. The  only hope we have left  is that the Government  will make some stipulations with  the company as to freight and  passenger- rates, and. also as to  running powers through the pass,  but it 'is 'extremely doubtful  whether the company will see its  way to make.many concessions,  for the simple reason that today  as ever "it doesn't have to." We  have no doubt that Mr. Blair  really meant what ho said in Calgary on Christmas day, aud that  he fiiHy believes in Government  control Df the road, but Mr. Blair,  like other sanguine people, .reckoned without his hose, nnd found  himself iu council at Ottawa composing a hopeless minority of one.  For what we are about to  receive from the clemency of .the  C. P. R. let us be truly thankful.  As far as the Government is concerned unless we are .seriously  wrong in our view of the situation,  we can only get from it whatever  the C. P. R. allows it to give us.

The Fact Confirmed by Tarte's News-  Paper and Montreal Politicians���������A  Report That Laurier Is to Make  Another Appeal to Greenway  MoNTliliAi., February 27.���������There is  no longer any doubt that the present  Liberal Government of Canada, which  has been thuobiect of continuous hostility on the part of the Hniiiau Catholic hierarchy, has iei|iiested the  Vatican to appoint, permanently a  Papal delegate to this country. The  rumours to that effect have been very  persistent during the past few weeks  and received confirmation today in a  statement of La Patrie, the personal  organ of Mr. Tarte, and in an interview with Drolet, who has just returned from Home. La Patrie makes the  positive assertion that Pitzpatrick,  Solicitor General, went to Home under  instructions from Premier Laurier to  represent to the Pope the. necessity of  there being in Canada a papal delegate with functions similar to those of  the representative of the Pope in the  United States.

It was a swell affair and  everybody,wore. his, best clothes and  his "'extra- special" smile,- and the  women folk brought their children so  that they might say when they grew  old that they had been to McGmty's  party. And among the rest Mrs.  Green brought her baby and Mrs.  Schneider brought her "baby. Now,  these two little cherubs were somewhat alike, as respects'age and general  appearance,' also in their politics so  far as I know. But Green's kid was a'  he, while young Schneider was a she.  And - .Green's kid had . yellow  spots but Schneider was pinky,  but then lamp light 'does play the  devil with colours and the difference,  wasn't noticeable.  Mrs. Green and Mrs. Schneider had  laid them down by one another oii the  bed upstairs to sleep while they were  dancing, and some oi the boys, being  of an exploring turn of mind, came on  the sleeping youngsters, and iL came  to pass that the devil (who, of course,  always attends dances) entered into  those same boys" and they took the  kids and changed . their clothes  and also their *" places.' Presently  up comes Mrs, Schneider to see  if her child was ..- being sat ��������� on'  or rolled off or otherwise maltreated:  Of course she took up young Green,  whom she was always declaring was  a young' scrub and a disgrace to the  settlement, and nursed it a while, and  put-itdown-oii-another-bedf���������fearing  that such close contact with, ''Green's  brat" might corrupt its "ickle'morals.".  And about 5 o'clock the party breaks  up in bits and goes home, iind Schnie-  der and his wife drive of with Green  junior, and the Greens hold on to Miss  Schneider, _ ���������  And when the*y got back home anil  Schneider had lit the lamp, his wife  cries out Oh! as if she had been shot,  and says: "I do, believe our baby's  getting those yellow spots like Green's  scrub ; it all comes of letting them lie  together. Oh, Henrv! what shall wo  do ? - Isnt it awful?" and such like  talk.  And then she undresses it, and  presently she knew what was the  matter; what she said then, however,  isn't fit for publication. Then Schneider runs oft and hitches up the. horses  anel drives oil' to Green's with  the youngster. And about half  way he meets Green driving along  with ills kill, and of course  there were big words.spoken and Green  said if .Schneider ever inn olf with any  of Ins olfspring again he'd "knock the  daylights out of. him" and so says  Schneider likewise to Green. But it  being 30' below they make haste to  swap babies and clothes and drive  back, Schneider taking the pink 'tin  and Green. the yellow thing, which  was right anil natural.  And when it got out of course everybody was for accusing his own particular enemy of changing the kids, and,  as I said at,starting out, there is red,  reel war, and everybody is ' in an irrigation temper.

Wait practically  sets forth the relations existing today  between the railways and the  merchants and shippers.  A Viennese woman of fm ������v l-,j.s already presented her husband with  thirty-two-children at eleven births ���������  according to the Vviqner Medicinischi!-  AVochenschrift. Twenty-six of them  are boys and six girls; at the first birth  four were born, at the second three, at  the third tour, at the fourth two. at-  the fifth three, at the sixth two. at the  seventh and eighth three each, at the  ninth two. ah the tenth and eleventlii  three each. The mother has nursed  them all herself. She "has suffered  from epilepsy since her fifteenth year,  Ibut none'or the children so far show  any sign of the disease. Th*. woman  was one of four children born at one  birth, her mother having borne thirty-  eight children: She is the wife of'a  poor linen weaver.  /!  i  c  ���������1 IO  '*������'���������  D  A KICKER  ONE  THE  MINISTER OPPOSES  'PEOPLE'S RAILWAY"  THROUGH CROW'S NEST PASS  And Says That Canada can do Without  it���������A Possibility That the Government May Take no Action This  Year���������A Very Disastrous Possibility  Ottawa, March 1.���������The Cabinet  helel ii long sitting on Saturday but,  contrary to expectations, the Crow's  Nest Pass railway matter did not  come up.  In Ministerial circles the impression  is growing that the Government may  in the end decide to do nothing in the  matter of a railway this year or for  some time to come. In conversation  with one of the Ministers yesterday,  he stated most emphatically that personally he was opposed to the expenditure of $15,000,1)00 or $20,000,000 on a  work which Canada could do without)  for the next 10 years. He pointed out  that instead of considering whether or  not the 'railway tin ongh the Crow's  Nest Pass was real'y needed, the newspapers and public bodies were taking  it for granted and were now simply  arguing whether the road should be  built hy tho Government or by the  Canadian Pacific Railway. Considerably less than half a million people  would be alfected by such a roati.

A Hekai.ij man had a chat this  morning with Mr. Geo. Gouin, who  has just returned from a trip through  the li. C. mining districts. Rossland  is full of excilenient, new schemes  being floated daily, some of them rank  swiiiilles. ' Nearly every Second  building is a mining bioker's office.  Sandon, Nelson, Kaslo, Northporl  were visited, and some ot the leading  luini-s. "There is no doubt," said Mr.  Gnmii, "that I lie ICootenuy is the  greatest, mining country on the face  of the' earth." Kaslo is shipping 120  tons eif ore daily. Sandon 100 tons.  Geo. Alexander's sampling- works at  Kaslo buy ore and advance 00 per cent  of the value, thus ptoviding a good  market for small shippers. Calgary  people aro met with in every town.-  Stime doing well, others not. Large  e_uiintities ot goods are coming in over  tbe Northern Pacific. .Eastern  shippers save four t>r five days  by this road as compared with  the C. P. R. At Ai rowhead 90 cars of  merchandise are awaiting shipment,  low water in the. lakes causing delay.  The consumption of food is enormous.  Competition in all lines keen. Commercial travellers are met everywhere,  Two-thirds of the goods used come  the States. Everything in Rossland  is overdone and it is a poor place to  go without capital. Miners make $3.50  a day. but lack ambition. After work-  about 50 'ishifti" they quit and 'go in  lor a big "blow nut'"; then start again.  In Rossland idle men cau be seen by  the hundred. The number of claims  staked throughout the country is estimated to ' be 00,000. The fortunes  already made out. of mines  are        enormous. One        mine  between Sandon and Kaslo was  bought by tho Horne-Pa'yne outfit for  $80,000. After putting in machinery  they took out $:*()0,000 of ore. in 30  days.  The L.irdeau country, which is tributary to Revelstoke, is rich iu minerals  and is coming lanidly forward. Two  big, groups are being worked there by  the Standard Oil Company and the  Home Payne syndicate, tho latter  having obtained assays of over 300  ounces in silver. -    ,  Nearly, every town in Kootenay has  electric, lights and water .works, but  after all, said Mr.Gouin, there is no  ���������town to equal Calgary as a place of  residence. Mr. Gouin, however, met  with some good looking^ prospects for  money making 'and will probably,go  out again and spend the summer  there.  ���������Calgaryi'Ilerald.

Shaking  palsy, a jerking of the eyes or bead  as seen in the aged, St..Vitus  dance, locomotor ataxia and many  cases of rheumatism are caused by  a tension of the nerves caused in  the beginning by the kidneys.  Brigbt's disease and diabetes,  opposite conditions," have their  cause in the kidneys.  Catarrh and other diseases of the  bladder are caused by -the kidneys  doing defective work, leaving the  urine in an inflammatory state.
