Saturday. Sunday and Monday were
well attended. Her opening lecture
on Saturday evening in the Methodist
church was a powerful exposition or
the ft length of lhe Christian position
agnins thu attacks of infidelity. It
was illustrated by a most beautiful
series ,,f sleienpt icon views of events
in the life of our Lord taken from
Hai-iimn's celebrated pictures. Added
interest was given to the lecture from
the fact that MUs Murtutt is herself
a convert from Judaism. Her last

night in the Presbyterian church and
was also illustrated hy blereoplicon

St. Leon Hot Springs
Messrs. Chapman & Smith have
leased the St. Leon Hot Springs and
will run the place this season. Mr.
Chapman, who is an old C. P. R. employe, is a living example of the wonderful efficacy of the health-restoring
waters of these remarkable nlineial
springs. Last fall lie was given up by
the doctors down ea-=t as a hopelessly
incurable, case of heart disease. He
was five weeks in bed. scarcely able to
move. As soon as he could stir he
ciine to St. Leon and is as hale and
hearty now as any man could wish.
From the very first application of the
of the water- the intense pain from'
which' he hud constantly suffered completely left him.

Mind-, you, it is tho same paper.  The advertisements are the same, the  ews items are thc same. In tytpo-  graphical appearance the two papers  are identical. You cannot tell then,  apart. Each item is in the same  position in both editions. The paper  printed in London and the .one printed In Manchester might come off the  same press as far ae the reader can  discern. .     ,  To accomplish this feat re .uire.l  much thought, more money, and still  more eiiorgy. In the first place a duplicate printing plant was established  in an old school building on the outskirts ot Manchester. Railway lines  run alongside the establishment, thus  doing away with any delay of transporting papers to the trains. Then  live direct telegraph wires from London to this building were leased.  Editors, compoisitorfi, pressmen, stereotypes, folders and packers ivere installed.  Special Staff  Organized.  In the Daily Mail oflice, in London,  a special staff was organized to send  matter. After each item of news had  been put in type and corrected, a  special proof was taken, the style of  headline written upon it, aud it was  then given to the operators, who telegraphed it, headlines and all, over the  leased wire to the Manchester ollice.  There it was taken in hand by an  editor, who punctuated it. Thc despatch whb then sent to the composing room, and again put in type, this  time in Manchester. The same Procedure was folowed with each adver-  tlseomnt and  each Item of  news.  As the time approached for going to  press in each oillce, 183 miles apart,  the same news Tvere in typo and  ready to go Into pages. The London  oflice page was made up and a list  taken ot the items in position. This  wns telegraphed to Manchester in  this style: Page 5���������Begin number  one head, "Kimberely Relieved," next  number three head, "Roberts' Report'  and so on, until each item on the  page  had  been  enumerated.  Similar directions followed for all  the pages, and by the time the presses  in the London office had started  printing The Mail the last page in  Manchester was almost ready for the  stereotypers to make plates.  Mr. Kennedy Jones, who has directed the workings of the scheme, and  personally supervised the organization of the Manchester office, tells me  that bundles of The Mail will soon be  leaving Manchester for the north, east  and west at the same time that they  formerly  departed   from   London.  Thus four hours and  183  miles  will  have  been   practically  annihilated.  ���������o-  ties, especially as they aro modified  by danger, discipline, victory ana a_  teat, it is the mat uuty of u. _eueiui  10 study.

It is well worth noting that the  great Duke 01 Wellington must be  Sreuued v.uli some uiscovenes and in-  novaiions in me art of war. 01 which  Uio tun impuriaiice is only, now ap-  paroni. iu cue Rsninsulu he opposed  the llritish line to tne French coiumn,  and thus bei-an the chung- which has  culminated in rendering an infantry  attack���������except when certain English  generals have the management ot it  ���������merely the advance of loose swarms  of skirmishers. There was another  point on wmch Wellington anticipated the warfare of our own time.  First among ihe commanders of Europe, he realized the importance of  Held positions, and understood th"  tremendous advantage which firearms,  even when they were only short  range muzzle loading muskets, conferred upon the defence. To turn  from our daily newspapers , to the  interesting and lucid pages of Sir Herbert Moyrell's Life of Wellington in  which he describes that general's operations in Portugal in 1S10. is to find  oneself in the preB.nce of a, curious  and most startling analogy. It Is impossible not to be struck by the tact  that Wellington barred Marshall Mas-  sena's advance by tho linen of Torres  WdraB, precisely as Cronje and Jou-  brrt blocked the way of our generals  by their entrenchments on the Modder  and the Tugela. In each case an  army, far superior In fighting power  and nbility, is held in check by an  enemy, who makes up for his deflcien-  it-s by utilizing the advantages ot  position. There is no doubt that Mas-  sena, with his 72,000 French troops,  must have easily defeated the 2i.,000  British and their half organized auxiliaries', of Portugal, if he had met  them on equal terms. It needed th .  combination of Wellington's quickness  of resource, and hia invincible patience  first to seize and fortify his Portuguese Plevna, and then to sit stubbornly behind it, in spite of a. raving  press, an angry public, nnd a doubting ministry at home, till disease and  privations had done their work and  Massena's decimated legions were  compelled to retire. Many of Ihe  acute and pregnant .scntonr.es qunt������d  from Wellington's Letter*, and Despatches in Maynell's hlottraohv. are  l.rcuv nearly as npnlicnhle today as*  they'were when they were written.

The Boer leaders noticed il  among the surrendered arms and  brought it back to Macdonald, telling  him to wear it, as a man who had  won such a sword should not be separated from it.

He gave It up in silence, but we who  knew his heart  Could   guess   tlie  wild   regretting,   the  aching pain and smart;  To  yield  his  sord   is   an  anguish   that  cuts a man full sore,  And tiia were a sting still keener,  for  he gave il up  to a Boer.

The gentlemen to whom hr.  made tlie above statement comprised a committee appoimed for the  purpose of interviewing tho government at the recent county convention  called by York county council.  The delegates informed the government that they wanted legislation  favoring a county system of main  roads touching the principal parts of  each county towards which grant-  should be made by the government.  The premier asked the members  of the deputation a number of pertinent questions. One of the great  difficulties, he feared, was jealousy  on the part of the townships, who  might not bo satisfied with the appointment of roads.  The delegates agreed with this, hut  thought a voto by all the people- of  the county would settle the matter,  even though the town-hip councils  be not satisfied.  Mr. Ross suggested statute labor on  the lands fronting the main roada  could bo devoted to improving the  back roads. Finally the premier announced that the province was- prepared to grant a million dollars for  improving the roada, distributing it  over a period of ten years provid-jd  an equitable system could be devised.  Tho province could afford to do It  and he thought by so doing they  could make it much better to the  farmer. They could get to market  .much more easily and quickly and  the comforts of rural life would be  greatly increased.

The  Revelstoke Herald  (SEMI-WEEKLY)  THE   MEXICAN   TROUBLE  Taquls   Compelled     to   Retreat    With  Heavy    Loss���������Mexican    Soldiers  Killed���������Heaviest Fighting  of the "War.  Potam,   Sonora,   Mexico,   Feb.   27.���������1  Tha   Mexican    federal     troops,   under  General Torres, have saved Guayamas  from the Taquls by dint of the fiercest  fighting of the war and at a sacrifice  of   200   soldiers.       The   town   here   is  filled.with wounded and all the public  buildings aro utilized.      Torres anticipated the surprise  the Taquis' intended.      The   Indians   were   accompanied  by   10   adventurers,   miners   and   cowboys,   who   acted   as   commanders, oil  separate   companies   of   40  men   each.  The   Yaquls  had   also   a  Maxim   gun.  Torres  reached here on Thursday  afternoon   and   decided    to    divide    his  army   of   700,men   into   two   divisions.  The first and strongest, flanked by tne  gunboat Democrata,  left here  at daybreak on Friday morning.      No scouts  preceded  the- forces,   the  first intimation  of the Taquls  being a withering  fire from the Maxim and rifle volleys  from   concealed    fortifications     in     a  dense  thicket.     The first  division retired   in  confusion  and  was  sheltered  on   higher   ground   along     the    river.  More   than  100  men   fell   at  this   fire.  The Democrata then  steamed up and  swept  the thicket with her guns,' but  [ evidently" ineffectively."    Her   forward  decks   were   swept   and   the   protected  upper deck peppered with bullets from  tho   Maxim.       Ten   sailors   and   First  Lieutenant  rtamboia.    of    the    army,  were   killed.      The   Democrata  drifted  for  more  than a half  a mile  until   a  bend in the river sheltered her.   . Late  in   the   afternoon   hill   signals   showed  the   waiting   commander   of   the   first  division   Hint   the   second    de'acbmen'.  had   reached   the    neighboring hei-hts  to  the south  east   in   its flank    movements:      A  simultaneous   attack   was  then  made from the front    and flank,  and the Indians retreated.      The Maxim   gun,   disabled     and    useies*-.     was  brought  into    Potam. and    73 Indians.  Hie   official   reports   state, -were   found  ���������*rnd.

These troops, wan two brigades  of the ninth division bore the brunt  of the light and sufCxi-d a lions  share of the losses.  The battle uominoiieed at dawn,  when the mounted iniantry, which  termed a screen for the advance of  tho ninth division on the left bank of  the river, camo in touch with the  enemy, occupying positions of advantage, and engaged them. General Smith Dorrlen crossed the river  at Paardeberg Drift with part of the  ninth brigade, the other portion coming to the attack on the other bank.  Fighting their way along the right  bank the Cornwalls and Canadians  came within reach of a Boer laager.  Charging the trenches' together, they  captured the first road but had to  retire. Here Colonel Aldworth fell  with a. bullet.in l_i������������ head as he was  leading his regiment.

The story is  told in the simplest terms in the  earliest despatches subsequently amplified, in a bulletin" read by Lans-  downe and Wyndham in parliament.  There is " in the first despatch, a  touch of grim humor, which informed the world that Bobs was happy,and  that ho -was an Irishman.  _here was a brief eulogy of the  Y_aor of the Canadian troops in the  longer message which revealed Lord  ifceb-rta in hia new character of' the  greatest and most tactful imperial-  *__.  l__or_ .Roberts takes the greatest  British victory of the campaign  t-osllr enough, and does not brag  About it He explains the depression caused among Cronje's followers by the defeat of the commandoe*  sect out to reinforce them, and describes the methods adopted for- har-  i*_6-ing them by a system of"gradual  approaches* a contraction- of the  area for defence, the shelling from  big* Howitzers and tho constant observation ��������� of the   balloon.  The sappers and engineers having  done* their work, a final assault was  ordered for Monday night.

Lord Roberts  told the colonial body guards ��������� at  tho Jubilee that he would like to  havo them, with him if he were on  another campaign. He has been true  to his word in putting this fine Canadian force well to the front.

Not a flag was flying and in fron  of the place where the bulletins were  displayed to the public scarcely more  than  a dozen  people  would 'stop   at  a time to read the news.    Outside of  the   war  office  there    was  the same  absence of crowd,  due doubtless,    to  tho drizzling rain.    In the war office  lobbies when a clerk/"posted, the news  of tho  surrender  quite  a  crowd  was  .waiting and  the  tidings". were  hailed  with  considerable  enthusiasm.    In an  incredibly  short  space     of   time   the  news had "spread to all parts of Lon  don.     At   the   Mansion     House    the  posted news was read by the crowds  of   business   men   hurrying  to    their  offices and cries of "Bravo Roberts,"  ���������' and   "Majuba"   wore  hoard;   "Majuba  avenged,"        "Cronjo        surrender-,"  These   are    tlie    expressions     being  shouted  all  over  London  today,  yet  thero   are   few  outward   signs  of national joy that Lord Roberts' dcspat.c  has  really   caused.

Tt is becoming obvious that Mr,  Martin is going to conlest this coming  election as the professed leader of a  Liberal provincial party. In this  capacity the Herald is free to confess that it considers that his chance of  getting a majority in the coming  contest is very slim. As an avowed  labor'leadei* wilh a strong demon ntic  and socialist platform, Mr. Martin  might prove a dangerous opponent.  But iin-i'Rly as a Grit partisan leader  with a bunch of old-fashioned Grits  hanging in to his coat tails, he is very  little to be feared. He cannot possibly  hope to control the whole Liberal  vote in the province. The Conservatives will liu quite, willing to pick up  Lhe challenge which he throws down  against them. Tlie labor vote will be  split up by the hoisting of the Grit  standard and are quite as likely to  rally round Mr. Cotton's provincial  party, which contains some notable  labor leaders, as lobe attracted by Mr.  Martin's programme, which presents  unmistakeable traces of the influence  line old crusted whiggery in certain  of its clauses.

To|revert lo Mr. Martin's programme.  The latgest feat lire of it is the adoption by the province of tho policy of  the government ownership of railways, wliich has been already endorsed  by every party in the province. Mr.  Martin, however, proposes to put it  inlo practical effect by pledging the  province lo construct 11 Coast to  Kootenay line, soul.hof tlie Fraser,  and to build a bridge over the  Fraser by which it is hoped  lo induce the Northern Pacific to come  into Vancouver. This is >i large order,  and though this district will not be  immediately affected by the proposed  line, which terminates at Midway,  still the II Eli A ld will discuss the prop  osition at more length in another  issue. Another plank endorses the  principle nf the eight hour law with a  broad hint that it may be modified to  suit those affected. Mr. Martin does  not say what these modifications are,  but it is not unreasonable to suppose  I hat. his Grit allies have insisted on _  relaxation of the strictness of the  present, enactment in this interest of  capital. Eight hours will be a mining  day, but. overtime will be ..Unwed.  The alien exclusion act. is to be repealed, a meaMi'e against which the  Hei'ALD fancies Mr. Martin will find  lew of his opponents to raise a dissenting voice.  :ed Cross  When you have to purchase drugs or get a  prescription filled.

Most of  these patients were afllicted with very larue  uumauagcalilc Hernia, which "tailed to be  relieved by all the lrus.ses tried. Thc principle  of this patent appliance seems to be perfect.  The support is directed against tlie scat of lhe  rupture onlv, and can be manipulated to  retain accurately. I unhe.italingly recommend M r.

DEAR SIR-- In my practice I necessarily  meet with maiiv cases of Hernia* or Rupturu.  During the pa������t 19 years I have had occasion to  use trusses of many patterns, with the usual  results obtained from belt anil spring trusses,  viz: very unsatisfactory. Until I recommended  your patent appliances adjusted by yourself,  all have been little better than ii"el<_.-s. I  voluntarily recommended anyone aillicted  with Henna to apply 10 vou at once and 1 have  no doubt thnt every intelligent physician, as  lie becomes aware ol yuur ability 10 cure  rupture, will gladly recommend jou to his  patients.

Should not an imlii.itry like  thi' ieceive the hearl y Hiippoi t, of the  ritizens. rather than a foreign element  tl1.1L would send away this money lo  China or elsewhere?

This plank, if adopted a few years aifn  would iia,ve condemned Koolenay 10  remain for ever in its condition ot  primeval wilderness. In the very  nature of things the Hrst. government  expenditure on a new mineral district  in a mountainous and rugged country  must ncr.'ssai i ly lie of tlie milim: of  an experiment or investment. Money  must lie -p-nt. to open it up in the  hope, a hope which so far expenditure  in Kootenay has amply justified, that  the returns to lhe provincial revenue  will come in later. Come it does and  very quickly hut, the government,  whi. h would wait, to begin to open  up the counlry until the returns were  actually in its hand would never begin  -it all. "On the other hand to those  living in Kootenay the idea of a.  collection of lolls for the use ofevoiy  new troverninent irail or road need  only to lie stated to be dismissed. Tl  is impossible and there is an end of it.  Even private companies which have  built trail" and roads in the country,  though they may have hinted at the  desire lo do so. have never ventured  to impose any toll upon the puhlic for  tin* use of them. And no politican,  who really proposes to adopt this  medieval iilpa in the last, yeais of the  nineteenth century, need appeal to  Kootenay for support.  Corporation of the City of Revelstoke.
