The stump burner has been tested  both here and in Vancouver with  marked success, as the following extract from the Vancouver Daily World  will show.  . There is an immense Held in British  Columbia for their introduction and  in the course of a couple of years the  stump burner will be found in every  corner of tbe province clearing rjp the  fertile valleys. - There are thousands  of acres of land in the innutneiable  valleys ."scattered throughout* B. C.  from east to west aud from north to  south that when cleat ed and producing will supply the fruit and vegetable  markets of the world.Vnd the Adaii  Stump Burner will do the work cheaper and more satisfactory than can be  done by any other means. ��������� The burner is fully protected by patents in Canada. and������ the;- United States,' and the  device is so simple that it will be found  ��������� t tt     1 1 ^.  impossible to infringe the patent either  here or across the line.

The plan is so exceedingly simple and  inexpensive, shows such promise in  1 educing the cost of clearing land, and  is so ingenious in evei y way that its  prospects appear remai kably encouraging. "- , , ' .���������,"-.'  * Mr. Edward Adair, tbe inventor and  patentee, is a well known mining man  trom Revelstoke. ^'While engaged in  attempting to get rid of the debris in  his mine at a not unprohibitive piice,  the idea struck- hira of employing a  device somewhutsimilnr in appearance  to a stove, that<.would"dispose of the  refuse thoroughly and cheaply. From  this stove evolved the present invention. Mr. Adair claims that by the  contrivance, of which we submit a  picture,1 the woik of stump-burning is  simplified and cheapened.  Nobody who has ever tried to rid  their hind of stumps can help but welcome the invention which, so far as  can bs-judged -at���������present,���������serves' its  purpose admirably. Flies usually,  after kindling, rapidly consume the  drier or more resinous poitions of the  stump and roots,, and then die out  when the wetter portions are reached  and tbe damp chari ed wood then foi ms  a hindrance to subsequent* kindling;  besides which, the u 111 estramed (lie,  especially if a breeze springs up, is  liable to ignite and spieud to adjacent  brush, where it may get beyond  trol and cause . erious damage.  con-  Mr,  Labor Day Dance.  ' Arrangements have been completed  for the dance to be given under thc  auspices of thu Independent Band on  the evening of L,ihor Day in the  Opera House. Thu band boys should  be greeted on that occasion with a  ctowded hall.' Throughout the summer they have heen en tot tain ing lhe  citizens with weekly open air concerts,  besides giving their services, gratuitously, frequently to local entertainments, and it is Ihe least the citi/.ens  of  Revelstoke  can do to show theii  Adair proved conclusively on  Thim. I appreciation of the   band's efforts by  day to a keenly  critical,   yet  highly J attending  the  dance  next    Monday  interested audience," that" the grave  disabilities at any rate "are removed by  his furnace. Generally,'the work is  also largely dependent on the weather  conditions, and a stump may be well  ignited and be, burning out quite  satisfactorily, when "a rain storm will  quench the fire and the aork will have  to be recommenced under unfavorable  conditions. As the illustration shows,  the device to overeomovthfese difficulties consists of a cylindrical furnace of  sheet-iron, which t covers the stump  that ia-to be burnt, while an ingeniously constructed smokestack lets out the  smoke and regulates the draught, thus  lowering or raising the heat, as requir-  ed. The question of poi lability has  been carefully considered. The following table shows the weight rof the  furnace, which will burn stumps of  various sizes: Furnace sufficiently  large to burn stumps Oieut in diameter  and 4 feet high, 80 lbs.; 0 feet in diameter and 7 feet high, -120 lbs. These  weights are approximate, and from  these figures calculations of the weight"  of furnaces large enough to*" burn  stumps of any dimensions can easily  be made.       , ���������        __"'_/ ~   -  The furnaces are made of sheet-iron  of 24 gauge. The casing is provided  with a closable .doorway, thiough  which kiudlirig may be introduced to  start tbe fiie and giving access.to tKe  interior for examination and attention.  On the top, or cover,- is another holer  through 7which -all rdebris and logs in  the *��������� neighborhood"- can be shoved, and  subsequently burnt..-,. Draught.open-  ings aie provided in th'edoor aud^covjer  plate, by'which the'admissinn of air  within;may be regulated. TheJ;urn-  aces are made in sections..The b'ottom  section'of the one exhibited on^Thurs-  .dajftMs /about" three "feefhigh and-the  .'tojT.iction abottl-SfourJedfohigh.'-.But  theJburners can be constructed of any  required height.. The obvious advantages *6tithe device are,that the combustion-is completely under, control  and the rate at which ic pioceeds may  be reduced, to as slow as.possible so  that it will ^be more thorough and  complete. It was demonstrated and  proved tbat one man could'attendto  fifteen burners simultaneously ^working. All that is required in the way  of manuak labor is to occasionally  throw in" fuel and to regulate" the  draught. The woik of putting the  burner over the tops of the stumps is  a veiy. simple matter, for ..unless the  stump is exceptionally high, one man  could operate them without, assistance.  On Thuisday all the burners on exhibit  worked exceedingly well and thetiriti-  cisms on all sides were extremely-favorable. The cost which, in all matters  of this kind is a matter of the first  consideration, is comparatively small.  It is estimated that the prices of the  burners, when tui ned out on a large  scale would aveiage about $15 for the  ordinary sizes, while for " the ,larger  sizes tbe cost would, of course, increase  proportionately. It is probable that  thfs invention will revolutionize the  price_ of dealing lmd. , lt requires  foipsight and a ^readiness to experimentalise in the"latest ideas before' a  new "invention ever catches_on,_but  this otio Js po ui gently needed that  there is no fear of the public being  afraid to give the invention every  trial. The World wishes Mr. Adair  evdry success for the future of his  clever* and original device, and trusts  that the public will look well into the  mat ter for ths sake of the great saving  which can he effected in land-clearing  by its employment."  evening. The proceeds of the dance  will be used to assist in defiajing the  expenses of the band to tho Dominion  Fair at New Westminster, wheie Ihey  have a two days' engagement. This  latter fact is something to feel proud  of as there are not many cities in the  interior that can boast of having a  band whose musical ability is tecog-  nised in such a marked manner. A  number of the most prominent ladies  in the town have kindly undertaken  to as'sist with the airangetnents, a  good programme has been arranged,  light refreshments will be served during the evening, and a first class time  iaexpected. _ -*  ^n this connection it might he seated  "that the Revelstoke bund was organized in the fall of 1S90 and, unlike  other bands in the interior,'has had  an unbroken existence since lhat time.  For their individual services thoy re-  ceive^nqthing, but at the same time  have 'obtained a musical education  through their leader (who al.o gives  his services gratuitously) and by strict  attention to "business have attained a  degree of excellence which has earned  for them the distinction of being the  best band in the incerior. ^ ��������� ,. -. 1  ** In view of the above f.i.ts the Herald "bespeaks for* the band boys the  patronge th. y deserve���������that is * the  best���������and hopes to see !a large gathering at the Opera House on Monday  evening next, Sept. 4th._ .  - ������SSSSS8s8s8S8s8s8sS*SS_ISte������l&!tS������S������9SS������_fet_Mt������S  I LABOR   DAY   DANCE I  Revelstoke independent Band ������$  UNNDER THE PATRONAGE OF  Mesdames Brown, McCarter, Kilpatrick,  Lawson, Lawrence, Coursier, Tapping,  Urquhart and Holten.

"Last "week a Herald representative  accompanied Senator and Mrs. Hendee, Mis. J. M. Tait. of Anderson,  Ind., and Mr. J. Loomis, of Elwood,  Ind., on 'ti sight seeing trip through  the Iliecillewaet Canyon. The visitors  were more than delighted, and so  expressed themselves, at the grandeur  and magnificence ot the sceneiy,.which  "only occasions a mere glance fionithe  citizens of -Revelstoke. There is a  splendid opportunity here > for the  newly formed Tourist Association to  make known the beauties of this canyon and by arranging for transportation to these points and the laying out  at a small cost of a number of short  trails could make this a favolite resort  for tourists. After un hour speut in  admiration of the canyon the party  returned by tho Greely Creek wagon  road to Mr. Ed. Adair's ranch. Here  considerable time was spent in an inspection of Mr. Adair's garden, which  for luxuriant growth cannot bo surpassed anywhere in Canada. The  visitors w ere astonished at the productiveness of the soil und remarked  that in the farm lands around Revelstoke the city  had   a  most valuable  is t-f  asset. As an instance of the productiveness of the soil Mr. Adair  has a small strawberry patch which  has beeu under cultivation for four  years, yielding a crop each year which  brought returns at the rate of $1,200  per acre. This is only a sample of what  can be done in the way of fruit growing in this district, and as pointed out  iu a recent issue of the Herald, it is  surprising that more attention is not  paid to this industry.  A minute and critical inspection was  also made of Mr. Adair's stump  burner in operation and thc visitors  were most interested in the device,  expressing themselves of the belief  that it would be thc means of solving  the big problem of clearing the fertile  lands of British Columbia of their  stumps at little cost. So much impressed were they witlr the working  of thc burners that it is altogether  likely that some of the visitors will  interest themselves in acquiring the  patent light to make and sell them in  the United States.

At that time thc Herald  strongly  seconded  Mr.   Sutherland's  suggestion and since then has been  doing pioneer woik along this line.  Through the humble erTotts of tbe  Herald in adveitising extensively the  wonderful discovery made by Mr.  Deutschman of the mat ble caves near  Ross Peak, at a cost to the management of close on $1000, Revelstoke has  in a few months attained a degree of  pro.uinence which in' the ordinary  course of events would have taken not  a few years to accomplish. The management of the" _Lek_j_d organized, the  Brst party which visited these wonderful caves, and in sending broadcast  hundi eds of copies of a special edition,  containing a fully illustrated descrip- -  Lion of this natural 'wonder, succeeded ^  in directing the atteotion.of the public  generally to this city.

WHOSE THE  "FIND?"  A week or two back a lady appeared in the courts to claim thu  contents of n purso of wliieli .slio became tho possessor in the most remarkable manner, and under circumstances which* might have proved  most embarrassing. Wilh a little  girl, slie was entering an omnibus in  the West Knd of .London, when a  passenger who had jusl alighted discovered that shc had lost her purse.  Inquiry was mado among all tho passengers in the vehicle, without result. Thc robbed lady went hcr  way, and tho new passenger look lior  place in the omnibus with her little  companion.  When she arrived hoinic, she, to her  amazement, found tlio missing purse  at the bottom of a small bucket tliat  sho had bought for tho child with  her, and which shc had been carrying  in her hand. Having at once communicated the fact to Scotland Yard,  every step was taken to discover the  owner of thc purse and its content!.���������  something like ten pounds. The  owner was never found, however, and  the question arose us to whether lho  purse and ils contents should he  handed to the lady or to tlio omnibus company. The Court decided in  favor of tho lady.  In what a fearful position the most  innocent may find themselves is  shown by a case which' occurred some  years ago in Dublin. -A man who  was accustomed to visit the house of  a bachelor friend vory frequently  used to do so in nn unceremonious  manner by tho back dooT. Tlie  bachelor was waited on by "a woman,  who camo in at certain times, and  who then left him to his own devices,  tlio only other person in the house  being a medical student. Thc friend  having slipped into the house one  day l>y tho 'back door, ho and the  tenant became engagrd in a discussion respecting some juggling, tricks  with knives which thc visitor had  seen. The bachelor declared th'ey  wero easy, and proceeded to give  practical illustration of tho fact.   ITASGEBTB UT=-IN-NO CENT,   By an unlucky accident, he inflicted  a terrible wound on hiu*.s;lf. Thq  friend, afraid to leave him lo dull  assistance', strove to do his best. All  was in .vain; tlio wound proved fatal,  and tho visitor became filled with  horror lost he should be accused of  ha\ing caused the death of his  friend. He stole quietly from the  House," and actually took a passage  to Xew York, and hastened to hide  himself in one of the wildest parts  of  the States.  Jn tho meantime, suspicion had  rcntrc-d on thc ic.ond innocent man���������  the lodger. A lady who lived at a  house opposite, and who occupied  herself in knitting nl an open window, ami observing wliat went on in  the street, swore most positively  that no one had during the fatal  morning entered tho dead man's  house.

Nows is to hand from two independent sources, says South Africa, of  an extraordinary adventure that recently bofoll Jlr. Dickert, a farmer  living somo 15 miles from Malindi  Siding, on tho Wankios lino. Mr.  Dickert wont to' bed at 10 o'clock  and was just going to" sleep when ho  heard what lie thought was a pig  grunting and sniffing outside the  door. He got up and stopped 'outside to call his dogs, when ho was  seized by a lion. Ho shouted, and  Mrs. Dickert ran out with a riilo,  with which sho hit lho animal on the  head, causing.it to loose its hold.  Mr. Dickert immediately snalchod  at tho rifle and fired, point blank,  fortunately killing the lion at the  first shot. Tho whole affair was  over in a few seconds, and occurred  closo to tho bedroom door, where thc  hungry animal had evidently been  wailing. Mr. Dickert was badly  scratched and had his arm lacerated  whero tho lion seized him. Though  sufficiently serious at tho timo, ho  now looks upon tho adventure as ono  of tho most novel ot his experiences.  Tho'people at Malindi  Siding have ....       _,  boon annoyed by a lion that develop-  dog's language,    which  I understand  i  f  ���������**. ���������'  ���������*j.-%^v.j.-%..;.-������*-^������>**^>*������<> ���������������������������������>������������������������������������������*'���������>  I must admit that I am somowliat  nshnmed to relate tho beginning oi  our mutual attachment. To speak  frankly, there is littlo room for proper self-respect or dignity: it. tho con-  fftssion that one fell in lovo at first  sight with a miserable looking creaturo. discovered shivering beneath a  portco.hero on a black and stormy  night; it may bo evangelical, l.ut it  hardly savors of prido for a man to  share his existence with a poor,  homeless and abandoned wretch who  beggod for a night's shelter nnd  camo from nobody .now whc.*o.  But a man's affections cannot always bo set upon tlio high and  mighty of this earth,, nor can his  esteem bo given solely to these who  have succeeded in obtaining a largo  slinro of its good things. Thoso attachments which nro most talked of  are vcry often tlio least pleasant, and  it must bt admitted that a lack of  fortune i.s not necessarily a disparagement, nn'd, for tho most part, tho  cruol tricks of fate take away nothing of personal merit.  13osidos, I was rewarded for my  good deed, if it was ono, so rare and  unbounded an admiration and gratitude that it deserves to bo mentioned.  To bcoln at th'o beginning, tlien, I  was on my way homo from thc club,  where I had just lost at play a sum  largo enough to destroy all thoughts  of merriment. On such occasions the  world invariably becomes black and  gloomy, my fellow men appear greater fools than they actually are, women aro but painted imitations of  beauty and all cab drivers a pest lo  bo ruthlessly treated.  All my best uintimcnts arc clouded  over for tho time, and in my wrath  and despair I usually endeavor to  make some one ,clsc as unhappy as I  am myself. Accordingly, I remember  upon this particular occasion two  beggars had hastily and 'tremblingly  withdrawn from my footsteps ns I  stalked  tragically  homeward.  Suddenly, as t turned a poorly  lighted corner, I hoard a low whine  at my side. I haughtily turned my  head the othor way. Two steps further come a second cry, from thc  other side this time and more persistent and insistent.  "Tho devil fly away witK you!" I  thought irritably. "I suppose I  can't decently leave the poor beggar  to dio just because I have lost a fow  piles of gold pieces."  -I paused,- feeling in my pockets for  tho few. scattered coins that had survived Hie evening's shipwreck. Tho  light from ,tho flaring street lamp illumined n single spot in tho darkness, nnd instead of th'o heggnr I  had expected I saw;���������a littlo, -shivering, black dog, * whoso' long curly  ears foil nearly to the ground and  wh'ose tail, w-agging pitifully, betrayed the owner's misery better than any  words.  I was furious. To be suro. tho dog  is tho friend of man in general, and  Tam the friend of thc dog in particular. -But lo bo stopped on such a  night, when T was nobody's friend,  either in general or particular, and  just for a'dog, was too much!  I started" to walk on, when I felt  his tongue, warm and moist, lick my  liand. Doubtless he wished to thank  rao for having done so much as to  pause and glare nt him for an instant. It was generous of mo, truly!  I stopped again. His tail was  wagging more and moro earnestly,  ancl hi.s dark eyes looked imploringly into mine.

Ho regularly took possession  of mo aud rnado Himself completely  at homo. ^=___  After his own toilet had boen mado  and the traces of his former misery  removed, I presented him. to tho mess  whero, with perfect self-possession,  ho accepted tho pottings and attentions  of my fellow  officers.  "Ho. would make an excellent military dog," said tho Colonel, always  on eminently practical man.   ���������  "Very truo," said tlio Liculenant-  Colonol, who invariably agreed wiih  his superior,   as  was proper.  "Let mo liavo him, Wilhelm," said  my chum, a Gaplaia in my own regiment. "I'll tench him tho tricks of  the trade.     He'd bo a lino mascot."  And, indeed, it was not long beforo  tlio intclllgont animal had learned  his lesson well. Ho could give tho  alarm, discover sentinels and spies  and carry written messages, delivering tliom to tho proper person. Tho  Colonel was delighted with him, and  h'e soon became tlic pet of tho regiment.  Tiicro wns ono thing, however, thnt  Ncdj-fc learned, to Irate very thoroughly, oven a painted picturo, and  that was tlio French uniform. In  order to inspire him witli a lasting  sentiment' of this nature, my friend  tho Captain, after fastening the dog  in tho stable, ha'd dressed up as a  French' officer and then pretended to  strike mc.  THo experiment was a complete success, s-o much so that wo had to interrupt it for fear of an accident, for  Nedjeli was straining at his ropo and  growling. After that ho evinced a  great Hatred for anything that recalled the uniform. Alas, it was this  very sentiment that brought aboul  his doalli.

Quito lately two or threo lions  havo been seen closo to the Victoria  Falls, on the south side of tho river,  but, for_tho reassurance of visitors,  it may bo" mentioned that they only  appeared at night and wore exceedingly shy of any human being.  At Dott,-which is' on tho samo  lino of railway, a few weeks ago tho  remains were found of a white man  who could not bo identified and who  appeared to have been killed and  partly eaten by lions.  Another European whon accosted  for travelling without a ticket hastily left the train in thc same district, mado off in the darkness and  has n������t boen seen since.

Seeing that  I was bound to' continue my walk,  he followed at my heels wilh a resigned  droop to his cars.  Wc stopped where a company of  men were practising marksmanship  and presently I felt a hard tug at  tho leash. Ncdjeh, his eyes gleaming, his Hair bristling, was standing  on  his  l.ir.d  legs  barking madly.  In vain I tried to soothe him, patting and calling him pet names; he  only continued to bark, hoarsely and  chokingly, as he strained at his collar. At last he gave one long snap  at the leash, which , broke. Ncdjeh  tumbled ovcr in - tho dust but, recovering himself, dashed off nt a wild  run.  "Here, here, Ncdjoli; come back!"  I commanded, but his ears were sealed.

Lang, of Golden���������A Miraculous Escape.  (Golden Star.)  F. C. Lang, our popular mining recorder, visited the great caves during  the past week, and gave The Star an  interesting account of his explorations  in the immense depths of the Deutschman cave. Mr. Lang enjoys tho distinction of having heen the first,  outside of Deutschman himself, to got  from top to bottom, practically speaking, of the caves proper, and gained  an experience which hc will not soon  forget.  Mr. Lang camped at Ross Peak tank,  eight miles west of Glacier, where the  foot trail to the great cave starts, going  up next morning in company with Mr.  Deutschman.    the   discoverer of  the  cave.   The main entrance of the caves  lies at an altitude of   5,3S_ feet   ahove  sea level, and 1.900 feet above the O.P.  E. track.    As the crow flies about two  miles from the track, by trail possibly  thiee.     It   took  about four hours to  make the ascent, while the trip down  can be made in oue hour.  The caves were discovered by C. H.  ���������Deutschmanra ti'apper and prospectorr  last fall, and his camp  is situated in  the centre of the basin, surrounded by  the most beautiful natural park I have  yet seen in British Columbia; level nnd  containing several acres and  carpeted  with a profusion of flowers and grasses  not met with in the valleys below.   Beyond this park is an open  basin  with  occasional trees, grasses and   flowers;  streams, with various other streams,  entering a small, clear lake.     At the  head of   the   basin   lies  a   mountain  glacier of  clear,   blue   ice,   of   many  thousands of   acres   in   extent.     The  first and higher cave, which this creek  drops into, has a   depth   as   far  as   I  ���������went down of abont 200 feet,  meeting  the creek and following numerous falls  and rapids in  the creek  for 100 foot.  The   next   cave   below1 is   from  two  torrents   on   the   north   side   of  the  mountain, dropping into a   hole   ancl  disappearing, coming   out  about   300  feet below, causing the formation of a  natural bridge of rock about   300  feet  long.   Where the creek emerges from  the bridge, the creek descrihed entering the first cave   comes   out,   which  here makes quite a   large   bottom   of  ���������water.     The creek  is exposed for 100  yards and tumbles into   a   vast   cave  immediately at the camp.    About 100  feet above where the water enters this  hole, a dry cave goes   down   through  the rocks.    Iu getting down into this  cave nine ladders,   a  floating  bridge  and nnmciou's loses and ropes aio usod  to reach the auditorium, where the  creek i.s mot, and various falls and  cascades are found within. Thc auditorium would have a diameter of about  eighty feet with a sloping of varigatcd  rock of a height of from forty to  eighty foot. The air here is perfectly  dry, ns is also thc rock, and would ho  a line place to either winter or summer  in. There are numerous tunnels leading from the main entrance of the  cave���������some within ten feet of the  floor, others to be seen in the walls  from 25 to 50 foot above, but inaccessible. One of these tunnels, ten foet  from thc floor and aliout half way  from the entrance, I entered and followed upwards for some 150 foot and  came out, looking down on the floor of  the auditorium and crock, some eighty  feet.below. This cave is dilferent from  tho others in that it contains several  large arches or girders running half  way, to the roof, one in particular  attracting my attention, being one  inch thick, four feet wide and about  15 feet long. A peak of rock, about  ten feet high, standing in the middlo  of the floor, has been named Mount  Ayr. Numerous pot-holes worn perfectly round with the clearest spring  water, are found in many places in  the cave.  The next caves are known as Canyon Caves, where the creek drops into  a hole at the camp and emerges about  100 yards below into a canyon with  perpendicular sides 125 feet in height.  Here the creek is visible for 200 feet.  Entering this cave, which is by far tbe  largest yet discovered, one could put  The Star building with a flagstaff of  100 foet with The Star flying from the  masthead, inside, and it would barely  roach the top of the cave. Tlie height  of the cave at the entrance would be  about fifty feet, and there is a hole  above^witb^udiameter-of. som&5Q-feet^  Standing at the creek bottom and  looking upwards, trees and tops of  peaks are visiblo, presenting one of  the most beautiful sights imaginable.  Here one could find ample space for  lawn tennis, golf and many other  games. In this cave at one place the  crock has a straight fall of fifteen feet  and then--good-bye creek. It disappears ancl you cannot evon find the  slightest trace of it after reaching this  point; it apparently has been swallowed by Mother Earth.  Askod as to the cause of tho hundred and one bruises and scars visible  en hi.s person, Mr. Lang reluctantly  explained that he followed his guide  down info the canyon on a half-inch  rope 125 feet long. It was on the return journey that the wounding occurred. After spending a short time at  the bottom they prepared for the return journey up that 125 feet of rope,  the guide leading the way and reaching terra firina after a hard piece of  swinging and climbing, as the rope by  (his time had become wet and slimy,  and not having been knotted, made  the trip an extremely perilous one.  Nothing daunted, Mr. Lang started  up the slippery rope, nearing the top  little by little and slowly but steadily,  now swinging in mid-air and again  reaching a small projection on the  walls of the canyon with tho toe to  give  him   another lift on his upward  |J September 27th to October 7th, .905 ^  Stupendous   and   comprehensive   array  of  Exhibits representing tlie resources of all Canada.  ty'  0 \  ATTRACTIONS  Enlarged Grounds.

Mr.  Lang is not the man to become excited  or lose his presence of mind. He gripped the rope in his teeth, thereby  retaining his uptight position, at tho  srme time endeavoring tn motion to  thc guide, who saw his peril, to pass  him another rope. He could not, however, hang on long and knew just  exactly tho position he was in, so let  go his molar hold, though still clasping the rope with bio hands, and slid  to the bottom, making the fastest time  on record, carrying splinters, rock and  dust with him and sustaining many  bruises and^knocks in the fall. Mr.  Lang's forethought saved his life. He  was naturally completely exhausted,  but managed to regain his feet and  after moving about for a couple of  hours was able to make the top from  a point at about one-half the depth of  the canyon, having during his sojourn  discovered a passage which took him  half-way up the wall. Mr. Lang says  the experience was interesting even if  dangerous, and says Mr. Deutschman  was down the rope after hiin like a  shot to render whatever aid he could,  for which Mr. Lang says he was ex-  ceediu arl v_graU'ful._althouKh_not__seri-  Speak Highly of B. C.  Mr. Marcus. Robinson and Mr. W.  Forrest, two prominent timber merchants, of Edinburgh, Scotland, who  are at the head of tourists on a trip  around the world, spent some time  last week in .the. Canadian Rockies.  To tlfo Vancouver Province Mr. Robinson said : ���������  " British Columbia timber has a  great reputation in Scotland.- A ship  load which'came around Cape Hum  was received-lit our -mills' just a few  days before I left, andit was splendid  stuff. I have often''marveled at the  size of the timbers which have boon  sent us, but after seeing some of the  forest giants coming through the  mountains, I can understand what a  source of wealth the .forests of this  province are I look for British Columbia timber to be more largely  used in shipbuilding in the future."  onsly injured.  $50,000 Fire at Fernie.  Ferxie, B. C, Aug. 20.���������About one  o'clock this morning fire broke out in  a small wooden building in Block 21,  immediately opposite the water tank  at the C. P. R. station, and occupied  by   \V..  G.   Lyon, who ran a clothes  !���������>  cleaning and pressing establishment,  All the buildings in the block were of  wood and not a single structure remains standing today.  The fire entailed a loss of from 835,-  000 to $-10,000, but one-third of which  was covered by insurance. The water  supply was totally inadequate, pressure not being sufficient to throw a  stream of water to the top of a two-  story building. About half of the  hose belonging to the city had been  sent to the Fernie Lumber Company's  mill two cjays previous to extinguish a  bush fire that was threatening the mill  and had not been'returncd. Teams  wore sent for it hut "did not arrive  until the fire had spread all over the  block and was of very little use on  account of lack of water pressure.  There was lack of organization and  people worked haphazard or stood  looking idly on as the firo licked up  building after building. There i.s great  indignation over the lack of organization for fire fighting, and tlie city  officials havo shown their absolute  incapacity to copo with the subject.    ���������  Will-Raise Millions.

G. p. Buchanan, in.puctor uncle, the  Lead'-' Bounties' Act, who nmdo nu  official tour of this district lust week,  snys tho Lardeau Mining Review, wa.s  in Nelson on Saturday. To n Tribune  reporter ho said ho "was struck with  the splendid vegetables of every kind  produced there, ranging from potato, s  to tomatoes. Thpre are none better,  and if some exhibits of these are sent  to Nelson they will create surprise by  their excellence."  Turning to mining, Mr. Buchanan  said that while pure speculation was  dead, there was more solid, permanent  work beir,g done than people wero  aware of. Scores of men wero doing  work on Iheir own properties and  showing up a considerable amount of  free milling gold." ���������  Speaking of what is known locally  as the long tunnel proposition which  is being conducted by the Reward  Gold and Silver Mining Co., Mr. Buchanan said the company has bi'cn  formed "to drive a tunnel half u mile  long at the base of the-mountain  which will cross-cut five proven ledges,  and is expected to develop a large  mining proposition. The money required, in the neighborhood of $30,000,  has been subscribed. The piospects  at such well known mines as the Silver Cup and Nettie L. are considered  by competent judges to be good."  * Clean-Up of $60,000  The most valuable cleanup ever  made from a claim owned by one  individual in Atlin occurred recently  on the Ruffner hydraulic claim on  Pine Creek. The cle.mip amounts  $60,000 and it is the thiid on that  property this season. Several other  cleanups of $15,000 have been made on  other claims. *        " ,  The aggregate Atlin cleanup for the  season will be over 81,000,000.  tytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytpty  ty ...                                   ty  '*% Bo Hot".

Seymour woku with a decidedly bad  headache, which wns not lessened  when ho recalled tlio events of Inst  night.  "I've got to thank you and your  vagabond wife for thut, Master  lloyee!" ho muttered. "Aftor all,  nobody will havo belioved him," ho  reflected. "Everybody will bo too  much engrossed In talking of Royco  and Madge, and their exposure, to  think of mo. Besides, I'm tho earl  of Landon. aftor all, and a good deal  is forgiven to a man in my position." "Thank Hoavon," ho added  devoutly, "wo'vo seen tho last of  Koyce and his wifo. Thoy shall never darken the doors of Monk Towers  again if I can prevent them. Oh, my  head!  .Seymour wa.s very palo by this  time, and lui sat for a moment silently looking down at tho diamonds,  hi.s whito lids shrouding his eyes, lie  stole a glnnce at .lake, then lowered his eyes again, for there was  something in the man's face, and tho  wny he was taking tho alftxir, which,  iu a vague, indescribable fushion,  made Seymour uneasy.  "You aro quitu right, sergeant.,"  ho said; "tho prisoner's story is ridiculous, of course. These diamonds  wero worn by Mrs. Landon last  night, and���������er���������t.ho fellow was hero,  as youcinay havo heard."  "Wo hoard something of it, my  lord," assented the sergeant, discreetly.  "Just so," said Seymour. "If I  remember  rightly,  Mrs.  Landon Went  After a time ho rang for his valet,   out on tho terrace with him���������I think  "I'vo   got    a  bad    headache,"     ho shu knew something of liim���������to   pcr-  said;  "it   muHt have  been tho    heat  suade him to go awny quietly,    and  and  the���������or    excitement    last    night.  .What  would you recommend?"  "Well, my lord, I should say that  a small quantity of brandy mixed  wiih sodawator would bo a good  thing; though I know, my lord, that  you have ,a strong objection to alcohol."  "I have," said Seymour. "I should  only  take it as  a medicino;  but     if  you recommend it-  But it must bo  very  weak,   please."  "Certainly, ray lord," said the  man. He reappeared presently with  a mixture that was anything but  weak, and Seymour, with a wry  face,  drank  it down.  "I think I'll Iio still for a little  while," ho said. "Js���������is there any  news? Mr. Koyce���������is he���������cr��������� indoors?"  "Mr. Royco has gone out, my  lord."  replied  thc man.  "And���������er���������Mrs.   Landon?"  "She's  gono too,  my  lord."  The man drew tho bed-curtain, then  hesitated.  "There are. two policemen waiting  to  soo you,  my lord,"  he  said.  "Two policemen! What on earth  do they want to seo me for?"  "Somo magistrate business, I bo-  lievc my lord," said the valet, demurely.  "Let them wait. Como up in an  hour."  Tho man left him, and Seymour  tried to sleep but his brain was too  busy.  "Koyce gone, gono completely, I  can bring matters with Irene to a  conclusion," ho mused. "There is  no reason why we shouldn't be married at once. That money of hers  will more than pay thoso confounded  debts of mine, and"���������he yawned���������"as  the story-books say, we shall be  happy ever afterwards. I don't  think she'll refuse me. She didn't  hear that ruffian declare he'd seen me  in Coventry streot, and���������and sho  didn't see me in the card-room,  yes. it's all right. I wish I'd  another brandy and soda; one's  use wiih a Head liko mine."  The hour passed in this kind of reflection.  "Will you see the constables, now,  my lord?" asked the valet.  "Yes, certainly," he said. "We  must not neglect our duty while wo  havo strength to discharge it. I will  go into the library and see them'  there,  please."-  There was  in the room, and ns it recalled  scene of his parting from Koyce his  face grew rather ugly and vicious;  but it resumed its proper expression  as the door opened, and a footman  ushered in tho two constables and  'Jake.  Seymour ~^half started from his  chair and glared at them with a  mixture of anger .and fear. Jake  was hand-cuffed, bis velvet coat hung  in rags, a smear of blood added to  lhe ordinary prepossession of hi.s  -countenance*���������and���������hi_^ey__r~_a~etr^Scy-  jnour's startled ones with a mixture of cunning assurance and defiance, which increased Seymour's uneasiness.  "What is this? Why���������why do you  bring this fellow here?" ho stammered.  "Reg pardon, my lord," said one.  the sergeant, "my mate found this  man along the London roud. He  was sneaking along under the hedge  in a suspicious sort of way, and my  mnn   stopped    him,    and   asked     him  Oh.  got  no  no doubt ho seized tho opportunity  and abused her goodness by snatching tho diamonds from her."  "Just so, my lord," saitl tho sergeant. "I suppose Mrs. Landon will  bo good enough to identify him?"  "Er���������Jlrs. Landon has gono away  on a visit," said Seymour; "but  thoro need bo no difficulty in identifying the prisoner. I should not liko  to trouble Mrs. Landon to give evidence."  "Certainly not, my lord," assented  the sergeant promptly. "One or two  of the servants who saw him���������"  "Send one or two of the servants  who���������cr���������saw this man hero last  night," ho said to the butler.  His lordship was not kept waiting  long, for tho simple reason that  nearly all tho household was collected outsido thc door; and as  soon as it opened not one or two,  but half a dozen entered the room.  "I do not want all of you. Which  of  you  saw   this  man  last night?"  "I did, my lord."  "Very good," said Seymour, taking up a pen. "Ho has beon found  with some of her ladyship's jewels  upon him. You may have seen Mrs.  Landon wearing them?"  "Yes, my lord, I noticed them particularly,"' said a footman, eagerly;  "I could swear to 'cm, my lord; so  could all of us, and tho man, too,  my lord."  "That will do," snid Seymour,  curtly.  - "What is your name, prisoner?" hc  asked.  Jake was silent for a moment, then  his lips twisted into an ugly smile.  "My name's Jackson Hooper," he  said, quietly enough, but in a tone  of assuranco ancl covert insolence  that caused Seymour to glance up  at him.  "What occupation?"  hc asked.  "I'm a gentleman,"  said  Jako.  A titter    and   smile   of amusement  spectators  at     this  Jake,  you'll  nway  lord-  Jake,  ran  around  tho  announcement.  "Silence,"  said  Seymour,  sternly.  "You refuse to state?" said Seymour. "1 suppose you are a vui;a  bond and a tramp?"  "Oh,    no,  I   am  not,"  said  "I'll tell you all  about me if  send this pack of gaping fools  my lord.*'  Behave yourself before  his  ship,"  growled  tho sergeant.  "Behave yourself," retorted  a stale odor of brandy turning on him savagely. "I'll teach  the you to bully mc, presently, my lino  fellow! You keep your hands oil  me! I'm going to bring an action  for false imprisonment and assault  against you, before many hours are  over. Ah, you may grin", but you'll  grin on the other side of your  mouths���������all of you'^he glanced at  Seymour���������"bofore long!"  "If you'll make out the warrant  I'll take him away, my lord," said  the sergeant apologetically. "This  is the kind of stuff he's treated us  *fc6~ever��������� s'lhCCTwe- tobl^hiii^rnr"-cus^"  tody."  Seymour's hand shook as ho held  tho pen. It is said that at critical  moments of our lives we are unconsciously protected' by our guardian  angel, whether it be a black or a  celestial one. Seymour's angel��������� a  black one���������whispered to him to leave  the warrant unsigned; but Seymour  turned from the inner warning, nnd  put the pen to paper. The niorning  had become overcast, and rain was  falling; in thc silence of the room it  who  hc was and what he wus doing j could  bo  heard  beating  against    the  out at that time of night. As he  wouldn't or couldn't give a satisfactory - account of himself, my man  told hiin that he should have to take  him to the station. Then ho pounced  upon my man, and would havo done  him a serious injury and got clean  eway if my man hadn't got at his  whistle, and I happened to bo near  and heard it. As it was, wo had a  bard  tussel  with him,  my lord "  "Get to the poinc.. sergeant. Why  did you bring him here? Thc station  was the proper place."  "Yes, my lord," assented the sergeant respectfully. "We took him  there and, searched him���������he being a  suspicious character���������and wo found  these upon  him."  ."'They are my mother's���������the countess'���������diamonds!"  "Yes, my lord, that's what I suspected, and I charged him with  stealing them, but he had the audacity to say that thcy had been given  to him."- The sergeant smiled. "In  the ordinary way I should have  locked him up at once and entered  the charge; but the man stuck to it  hard and fast that they had been  given to him���������by Mrs. Landon, he  said, my lord, begging your pardon," he put in apologetically. "Of  course, we knew it was a lie but  tho inspector thought it would be  ns well if w'e brought him up here  for identification, and get you to  sign the warrant, my lord." . 1  window. Suddenly tho noise was increased as If the rain had turned to  hail; and Soymour glanced behind  him. A woman was standing at tho  window and tapping.  "Who is it?" said Seymour, angrily-  "I'll see, my lord," said tho butler.  "What is it, my good woman?" he  said solemnly! "You mustn't como  here, you  know."  "I want to see tho countess���������I  must!" said a low voice. "I'"or  God's sake let me in. T must see  hcr.   I must see���������her  ladyship!"  "The countess cannot seo you,"  said the butler in a tone of outraged  dignity; "and his lordship is engaged. Why didn't you go around to  the back?"-  "I did," wns the reply, "but there  wa.s no one there, ther���������servants wore  not there."  They were all, men and women,  collected outside the door, straining  thoir ears to catch something of  what was going on inside tho room.  "Go  away!"   said  tho  butler.  "Yes, go away, Martha!" called  out Jake.    "You're not wanted here!  At the unexpected interpolation nil  eyes turned upon thc prisoner; and  in the moment Martha Hooper stole  into the room.  Am     I���������am    I    too   lato?''      sho  panted.  Seymour   stared   at    hor with     a  strango sensation    of   dread,    which  seemed to  himself unaccountable  "What does tho woman want here?  ho demanded angrily. "Send her  away���������tako hor away!"  "No, no," sho said hurriedly, pant-  ingly. "Don't send nio away, I must  speak to you. Don't send him to  prison, my lord. For God's sake  don't think of it. Oh, I am not to  late!"  "Go away, Martha!"- growled  Jako. "Ho ain't going to send me  to prison. What do you want to  como und intorforo for. Mo and his  lordship's going to have a little conversation together, and it will bo all  right; only you clear out, will you!"  "Let ,-him go, my lord," sho  breathed. "You don't know what  you are doing. Oh let hint go! Givo  him money, now at once, und let  him go!"  "Mind your own business, I toll  you!  Who  asks you  to  interfere?"  "This woman is a friend���������a confederate of this man's evidently. I  should advise you to keop your eye  upon hcr, sergeant. Sho is a pensioner of hor ladyship's, and I have  no doubt is as bad and old a thief  as tho man."  Ho signed the warrant and held it  out, and tho sergeant stopped forward to take it; but boforo he could  reach it tho door opened, and tho  countess stood between him and tho  table, and it was her hand that took  thc warrant.  Martha   uttered     a   low    cry    and  shrank back against  tho window.  Seymour stared up at tho countess.  "Mother!" ho exclaimed.  "Release that man!" shc said.  Instinctively tho policeman dropped  his  hand  from  Jako's  arm.  "Take thoso oil; tho man is innocent! My daughter gave him thoso  jewels.   Do as I bid you!"  The sergeant, after a moment of  stupefaction, unlocked thc handcuffs,  and Jake shook himsolf ancl turned  upon thom with a grin of triumph.  "What did I toll you?" ho criod  gloatingly. "Whero are you "now, eli?  Oh, I'll mako you pay .for this. And  now got out! I want a word with  my friend���������my friend, d'ye hear?���������the  counless."  "Leave us.   I will be answerable."  The countess  calmly signed to  the  servants  to   follow,   and   thoy,     too,  filed  out.  "This is too much!" exclaimed  Seyinour. "What docs this mean,  madam? Do you know what you have  dono? You���������you of all persons to  stoop to screen such a ruffian from  justico! But you will allow mo to  toll you 'that I will not permit of  your interference! I say I will not!  I am a magistrate " he stammered and stuttered in his rage. "Aro  you mad? You forget yoursein I  say tho man shall be indicted and  tried. Ho shall bo tried for tho theft  of these diamonds. ' I don't believe  Madgo gave them to him; no - jury  .will believe it. But that is not the  present question. It is your���������your  indecent interference! Why do you  interfere? Why should you endeavor  to savo this vagabond from the punishment?"  Martha Hooper had stood looking  from one to tho other, and apparently  struggling  for  breath.  "I will toll you!" sho said in a  low, strained voice. "Do not ask  her; ask me!"  "What the dov���������! What, are you  hero still! What have you to do with  it, woman?"  "I���������I am his wife."  "You arc his wife! Well, I'm sorry  for you. But you have no business  here. You can see him in prison. Go  away at once."  "Oh, my lord! how can I toll you?'  and she put her hnnd to her eyes for  a moment.  Jake came forward and put his lips  closo to  her ear.  "Hold your tongue, you iool!" ho  hissed. "Leave it to me. You shall  have  your share!"  ''Madam, forgive me!" she moaned,  extending her hand toward the countess. "I cannot keep silent any  longer. I have been faithful���������faithful  for years; but cannot bear ray burden any longer. Oh, forgive me, madam, for the sake of old tiros; for  the sake of all wc have suffered together������������������" Her voice broke.  "I have nothing to forgive. Yes,  tell him!" fell from her white lips.  "My lord, this man is my husband.

Prices rango from* Si 25 to SilOO, with  an increase' of about 10 per cent,  when matched in teams. These prices  are sometimes exceeded, and dealers  insist that prices were never,so low  that a span of draft horses .would  not bring $600 if only thoy woro  good' enough. -  This is par excellence the horso for  tho farmer to raise. Only the blood  of tho best draft breeds, and the  heaviest and best boned stallions nro  suitable. Even then the demand for  extreme weights necessitates tho use  of large marcs that are'good milkers. In no other ,way'can colts bc  produced with'"sufficient bone and  feeding quality to attain the size  nnd finish demanded by the markets.  Even then the youngster must bo  supplied with tho best of feed in  largo amounts from tho very first.  Plenty of good pasture, clover hay,  oats and corn are imperative, and  thero is no better feed for young  horses than green corn cut from tho  field and fed whole.

Wo hud been  descending for about ono hour when  a flash' of lightning called our attention to a black cloud, which advanced toward us and caused us to  hasten our movement..  .Suddenly, without warning, the  cloud fell upon us, dense and dark.  Thc axes in our hands gavo out faint  steady Humes: so did our gloves, u������d  our  liair     stood     out  straight.

Wo  wore all seated ou a steep incline of  ledge, clearing away th'o ico, when  all at once tho mountainside appeared to break out in a blaze, followed  by a muzzled mullllcd peal of thunder, which scorned to come out of  thc interior of the mountain. If a  great crovice had opened and fire  burst forth we should not have been  moro surprised.

The spectacle was so grand that wo  even took a grim enjoyment in it.  But when it had passed night had  fallen, und wo were prisoners until  morning.  Wo lashed ourselves to the rocks,  braced our feet on tlio small projections of the steep incline and tried to  make the best of it. It snowed and  hailed and blew.

Purchase   of    Tallow     Dip   by.   a  Poor  Woman   Leads    to   a  Pleasing Discovery.  If hor expectations aro fulfilled, a  poor woman in Australia will o������o a  fortune of 850,000 to tho purchase  of a penny candle, and threo other  members of the samo family in Kng-  lund will be indebted to tho same  humble sourco for another ������50,000  oach. That will mako 5200,000 obtained through a tallow dip.  This is how it happened. Mrs.  Henry Motleo with her husband emigrated to Australia twenty years ago  und settled in liallarat, but mot  only with bad luck. They couldnK  afford gas and Mrs. Motleo is precious glad now that they couldn't  for thon sho would novor havo got on  tho track of a fortune. Huducod by  poverty to tho necessity of making  only thu smallest purchases, Mrs.  Motleo, about two months ago, sunt  ono of her children out to buy a  single candle.  The shopkeeper who sold it wrapped it up in a stray piece of a newspaper. When Mrs. Motleo had lit the  candlu she chanced to gluncc over the  printed fragment and ' read thoro  something that transformed her hum-  bio dwelling into a prospective  palaco. It was an advertisement requesting Mrs. W. Chapman, her two  sisters and brother to communicate  with a certain London lawyer that  they might obtain possession of an  estate valued at 5200,000, to which  each was entitled to  ONE FOURTH SHAKE.  lt is the fact that Mrs. Motleo is  ono of the sisters referred to that  filled her with delight. Sho immediately wrote to Mrs. Chapman, who  lives at Yarmouth in England, tolling her of tho discovery sho had  made, and how sho had mado itf and  asking her to set things to work .to  got hold of tho money. It is  through Mrs. Chapman, who seems in  a fair way lo prove tho claims of  hor'family to the fortune, that tha _  story has como out.  The estate in question" was left in  1791 by Thomas Hawkins, a solid"  tor, to his ��������� son Richard who was also a member of thc legal profession  and settled at King's Lynn. This  Richard Hawkins had a son George -  and it was because of tho difficulty  tho latter encountered in proving his  father's will that the cstato was  thrown into chancery. Georgo Hawkins was tho great-grandfather of tho  present claimants to it. Mrs. Chapman has still in her possossibn a  portrait ot Thomas Hawkins and his ���������'  family embroidered in silk, bf a stylo*'  fashionable at tho period in which ho  lived. It" was exhibited at 'an art  loan "exhibition some years ago and  a curio collector then offered StlOO  for it. Hut Mrs. Chapman, who has*,  not been reducod to buying penny  candles, cherished it too much* as a  family heirloom  to  part  with  it.  Another   strange ,'story-, has   just .  como to light concerning how a German woman is alleged  to have    discovered that  she    is    entitled  to  . a  share in thc estate  VALUED AT  82,500,000,  loft by Mrs.  Helen Blake,  widow    of  General  Blake,     who     died in 1876.'  Sho read in a newspaper that'   Mrs.  Mead, an old woman now an inmatb  of  tho  Hackney  Workhouse,   in  Lon-'  don,     had . claimed   a sharo in    tho  Dlako   millions     as     Mrs.      Blako's  cousin.   From this story tho German  woman learned that her name is tho  same as the maiden namo of the gen-.  eral's widow, and this suggested   lo  hcr that shc might bc a relation and,  therefore, entitled to a share in   tho  property.  Thereupon,  sho   consulted    a clairvoyant.      Tho    oraclo  told  her  that  sho     was    a   relation    and was undoubtedly entitled to a share of tho;  Blake inheritance which is now held  by   tho   crown.       Thero - is    nothing   ���������  startling in  that."-kClairvoyants  gon-_  orally  toll  thoir  clients  things    that  will make them think they are   getting their monoy's worth.   But    this  ono   ".went    farther   than   that.'    As  proof "of hor  occult powor_ slio mado  t  | "What will happen "to you if you  i aro a goo-l little boy?" usreed the  ilin'ly old lndy..

And she told tho uamusako  of Goncral Blake's widow that if it  didn't turn out correct sho would return hor fee and rcnounco clairvoyance. Tho master of thc workhouso  had pronounced a copy of tho drawing which has been sent him an accurate ono of Mrs. Mead's ward. It  was accepted by tho German woman  as conclusive proof that all that tho  clairvoyant had told hor wus truo.  Sho has engaged a lawyer to hunt-  up records and push hor claim. But  Mrs. Mead docs not nt all relish tho  idea that tho publicity given to her  story should bring forth nnothor  claimant to diminish her own prospective sharo of the Blake property.

' The ; face receives an undue sharo
of tho injuries that result from our
. rude but exprcssivo manner of celebrating national independence, for it
is moro exposed than any other part,
excepting, perhaps, the hands, to tho
disastrous results of premature explosions.
; The injury must bo vcry slight that
docs not require the immediate attention of a surgeon, for-most
wounds ol this character aro contaminated wilh foreign matter of
some kind, burned paper, hair, powder, .liidei-s, or clny, and it is diflleult,, witli the be.vt of care, to prevent disfigurement. But tho wounds
"are fje.-ncrally so painful that something, must be done for. their relief
before the doclor arrives.
Jn th'o temporary treatment of. a
burn, ., the most frequent form of
Fourth-of-July injury, tho first object is lo apply something that will
exclude tho air. Carronroil, composed of oquni parts of linsecd-oil
and liine-water, is sanctioned by long
usage', but other oils or white vase-
lino may be employed. Carbolatcd
oil relieves the pain more quickly,
but it cannot- be usod on largo surfaces or near the eyes. Pieces of
aseptic gauze, lint, or clean, soft
muslin should bo applied, saturated
with' lho oil, for theso do not -adhere so firmly as absorbent cotton.
_)listers may be drained by .puncture
wifh a needle alonji th'e "sides, close
to tlie healthy skin, but care must'be
taken to-prevent removal of the skin
that forms their covering until healing Has occurred.
When the eyelids are involved in a
burn the injured person should be
forbidden to open tho eyes and no
examination should bc made, for
thero is always danger th'at foreign
."���matter will be permitted to enter
the eye, or that the stubby ends of
tho burned lashes will bo turned inward and cause great irritation.
VVads''"*of lint saturated with oil
should '. be applied, and both eyes
should-be included in a light compress in order to prevent movement,
even if-only one eye has been injured.
It is important, also, to have powder grains removed' from tho eyelids
before tho skin has healed over them,
for the inflammation induced -Iiy"
thom is sometimes so great that the
lids are thickened and ..their freedom
of motion inpaired.
Lacerated wounds.should be cleansed of foreign matter by means of 'a
stream "of lukewarm water that has
been boiled. They should then bo
covered with' nn oil dressing or a
,piece of clean rubber tissue under,
lint or gauze, to protect them from
thc  air. - -     '_

A Trouble That Afflicts Thousands of Young' Girls���Oftred by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills do only
one thing, but they do it well. They
fill tlio veins with new, rich, red,
Health-giving blood, which drives
away all traces of anaemia, headache, backache, palpitation, nervousness, dizziucss and despondency. The
now blood they make brlghtenB dull
lustreless eyes, and brings tho rosy
glow of health to pale cheeks. In
curing anaemia Ur. Williams' Pink
Pills curo tho foundation of consumption na well. Th'o now blood
they actually make gives now
strength* and vigor to overy organ, in
the body, "and enables it to light
whatever disease attacks it. That is
why thcy nro the best medicino in
tho world for girls in their teens���or
women in middle life���and to all
thoso whoso blood is weak, watery
or impure.
Miss Mazy E. Pratt, BlytK, Ont.,
gives strong testimony to tho value
of those pills. Shc says: "I was n
sufferer for over a year with anaemia. I was completely run down,
had frequent headaches, spells ot
dizziness and palpitation of tho
heart. I doctored all summer and
was no bettor th'an when I began. I
hail practically given up all hope of
finding a cure when my brother advised "me to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I got four boxes and when I
had taken them T felt so much better .that I got six boxes more, and
before I had taken all these I ���.vas*'
completely cured. I am moro thankful than I can say for what the pills
havo'done for me, as but for th'em I
would not bc enjoying good health
to-day. I strongly urge all weak
girls to give Dr. Williams' Pinik
Pills a fair trial." '
Miss Pratt's experience proves the
value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to
every weak and ailing person. Theso
pills can bo had from any medicine
dealer or by mail from the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.,
at 50c. a box or sax boxes for $2.50.
Even very abstemious people arc
often suflerers from, indigestion
caused by over-eating. Tho amount
of food they tako is not too much
for the day, but it is distinctly too
much at the timo they take it. .Wo
will suppose tho case of a woman
who has had nothing sinco her light
lunch, and who has come home tired
and hungry with her day's work to
a dinner at seven o'clock. 'She is
thankful for a good meal, eats heartily, and is surprised' to find after
wards-she.', feels rather worse " than
better for! it. The reason of this-is
simple'. Shc was tired out; hor
stomach, liko the' rest of her body
was unlit 'for work, and the digestion of a meal means.hard work for
that important organ. Instcad . of
dining directly she- came in,,." she
should have" takon a cup of h'ot
water with, a tablespoonful of milk
in it/ and then sat down quietly for
five minutes* Hud she^dono this, and
then begun to eat slowly, masticating thoroughly,' all would have been
well. The little pick-me-up would
have enabled the stomach to do its
work. j. If only people would more
generally follow this plan, dyspepsia
would be less frequent than it is at
present. ,

MAN   WHO   MADE    $150,000,000
Increase in Value of Standard Oil
Stock   Added  ��124,000,000
to His Riches.
"I made tho thousands, tho millions made themselves," tho lute Jay
Oould onco declared; and, although
the statement mny perhaps savour
of exaggeration; it is probable that
many another man of millions would
endorse J. D. Blair's statement, "I
made my second million easier than
my lirst thousand."
At what an astounding rate a fortuno may grow when once it has
passed tho million rubicon, which so
few of us may hope to reach, is
proved by tha following statement
of Mr. J. D. Rockefeller's wealth at
different stages of his romantic
career. In 1865 his capital, all told,
was a bare $5,000; five years Inter
it had grown to ?..0,000: in live
years more it touched $1,000,000;
another ten years made it 550,000,-
000; fivo more years douhlcd it; in
1899 his fortuno had reached tho
stupendous sum of $250,000,000; and
to-day, just forty years after
first thousand wns faaved, it is
EXCEED 8500,000,000.
Thus,    in    fifteen   years   (1875
1890)   Mr.  Rockefeller   increased
fortune a  hundredfold;   and   in
next fifteen, though ho has only multiplied it by live, he has added $400,-
000,000  to   it.
To illustrate how possible such an
incrcaso is, nnd how millions can
make millions, let us take one year���
that of 1890���in Mr. Rockefeller's
race for riches. At the beginning of
that year he stated on oath ho* was
the owner of $31,000,000 in Standard Oil stock. Before December came
that stock had appreciated 400
points���each 55 he held in January
had grown to $20 by tho end of the
year, and thus, ns any boy can calculate," his holding in tho Standard

already great popularity of Dodd's

I owo to Do'dd's Kidney Pills."
Tho fact that Gravel yields so
readily to Dodd's Kidney Pills is

Kinlcy's campaign manager, - called

have to be settled at onco. Mr. Morgan' accordingly called a meeting of
tho mine-owners to receive* Mr.
Hanna's proposals; and, confident
that the deliberations would end in a
settlement, .he proceeded to buy
every coal share he and his agents
could secure.'
Mr. Morgan's foresight was justified; the. strike was settled; prices
took a big leap upwards, and the
great financier was able to sell at a
profit variously estimated* at from
" $10,000,000 TO 515,000,000.
