A whisper is more  penetrating than n full tone, and it rasps  every nerve. Do not speak in n loud  tone, nor talk about the medicine, the  disease or the food. Never tell anything  of an eicltinf? nature, nnd avoid all reference to what in annoying or unpleasant.  If there is a jar in the domestic machinery, never let it come to her ears. It will  surely trouble her and may retard her recovery. It is ot.tlie utmost importance  that all family troubles or vexations be  rijcidly excluded from the sickroom, and  that it be pervaded nt all times by an atmosphere of cheerful and restfui peace.  The~one special ciualiScation needed to  get on in the sickroom is tact.

The Double Eagle Company h&s been formed for the purpose, not only of m ning its present properties  but of acquiring promising claims and developing theni to an extent that will justify their sale to English and  other companies at a profit. The company already owns and has paid for in full, tbe^ Trilby and Old Saul  properties in the famous Fish River district, and a three-quarters interest in the May Bee mine, in the  Lardeau district one and a half miles fnm Ferguson Sufficient promoter's shares have been set aside for the  purchase  of the remaining  quarter.  The May Bee is the sister claim to the now famous Nettie L, which has broken all records in British  Columbia for large bodies of phenomenally, rich ore. The May Bee and Nettie L were located together in  1><92 by Mr. W. B. Pool (who has been appointed manager of the Double Eagle Co.) Both claims carry identically  the same rich ore on the surface and the same remarkable ledge runs through both, carrying high values  in gold, copper, silver and lead.. The promoters have already spent $4,000 in developing the May Bee, with  ex eel lent resulrs, and in order to place the mine quickly rn a shipping basis the company now offers the publio  ' the opportunity of investing to a limited extent in fully paid and non-assessable treasury shares (par value  $1)  at   10 cents each.

From the Calgary Herald  Mr.  Vick, watchmaker of this city  is  the possessor of  a medal with a  highly interesting history.   Its story  is told as follows by the Edmonton  Post.    The  medal   is  at  present    in  the Imperial Bank vault:    J. B. But  chart of Stony Plain,    a    couple    of  years ago  had in his possession    a  silver medal which he had from his  father.    It  was  supposed  to    be   a  Waterloo   medal,   but  it  was  larger  than   any  army   medal,   and   it  bore  ���������the effigy of George III.   One day he  brought it. into' town and gave it to  -Sheriff-Robinson-for_a.small_sum_.of  money.    "Afterwards he  got    it back  and sold Norman Jackson, then  clerk "at the  Queen's  hotel    for  $11.  'Mr. Jackson removed to Calgary,, taking the medal with him and carrying  it as a pocket piece, as some men do  with old coins.   One day he thought  he would  like an impression of  the  medal and he showed it to Mr. Vick  a jeweller who did business next door  to the  Royal hotel, Calgary,    where  Mr.   Jackson  was  clerk.      Mr.   Vick  said he would clean it up and take  the Impression of it.   He was unable  to do so, and on returning the medal  to Mr. Jackson asked what he would  take for  it     Mr. * Jackeon    said  he  would not take less than $100, putting  a ficticious value on  it he thought.  Mr. Vick said: he  would .see him in  the morning. When Mr. Jackson went  into Mr. yick's place in the .morning  he saw ten ?10 bills on the counter  and he: thought he had: made a very  good   bargain   In  parting   with     his  $11 medal at such a figure.   Mr. Vick  knew  what  he   was about evidently.  He sent' a description' of i the .medal  to, ' the r Smithsonian   Institute, at  Washington.    The   authorities   there  sent back word  that the medal  was  one of six presented by King George  III. to loyal, Indian chiefs during the  war* of the revolution   in   1776,   and  that the Institution would pay $3000  for  it.   In  the  meantime Dr  Of the First  Contingent  Sends   His  Father an Interesting Account  of His  Experiences.  Mr. John Nleboreall of thl������ city haa  received from his son, Henry Nieber-  gall, a member of the First Canadian  contingent, an Interesting memento of  the war in the form of a diary of the  experiences of the young Canadian  volunteer and the members of his  company from February lUth to 24th.  The diary commences with the arrival  at Belmont on tho morning of the 12in  after a march of 14 miles, Including  no breakfast and no dinner, on the  way to Graspan to Join the brigade.  On the following days the Canadians  marched across Riet river and. thence  to a point four miles from Jacobsdal,  where they joined the third division,  and took part In the fight of Thursday, February 15th. On the following Friday the company arrived . at  Jacobsdal' and found 76 dead Boers,  as well as a number of wounded from  the battle of: the previous day. The  British loss was only one killed and  seven wounded. "Jacobsdal Is a small  village something like Baden, Ontario.  We found lots of good water and  killed about 200 calves. Two of our  mess and myself killed ono about two  months old, and ������������������ dug up some new  potatoes,     Great dinner!"  News was now ; received that the  camps where the Canadians were - on  the 13th had boon captured by the  Boers and that the British sick who  had dropped out on tho march were  prisoners. "Our advance column relieved Kimberley lust night. We expect to arrive there Sunday mornin-j  if all goes well. Patrol last night  very hard nnd dangerous." On the  morning of Saturday, the 17th, Modder  rlvor drift was reached after a night  march, and a start was made for  Kimberley the same afternoon.  Sunday, February IS���������"Arrived hore  this morning at G a.m., marching all  night., When we got hero some of our  outfit were into It protty heavily.

When' our -company "A" was advancing ;200 yards in the roar of tho  Seaforth Highlanders, I received,two  wounds, one a skin wound In the calf  of the loft leg,; and the other right  through the * muscles of the left arm,  fracturing the bone. I lay there all  day till about 5 o'clock when the firing  ceased a little,., and then got���������.:up and  made for- our camp, two miles m������>.  The wound In my arm was very painful, while the doctor was setting it,  but it Is: O. K. now. Neither of my  ���������wounds are serious .and will not Interfere with me after they are healed,  so don't, trouble. Our captain and  oneserge'ant were killed and 15 of our  fellows were wounded. The wounded  are all from B. C, except two. Tho  sergeant killed was Scott, of Victoria.  Tho Canadians made a splendid name  in the charge ton the Boer position.  I would liked to have been in it, bui  tho crack in the arm settled me. The  ilrst'wound in the leg I took no-notice  of. I was hit In four other places  besides these but none touched my  body. One ball went * through tho  fold of my trousers, two through my  haversack, and one through my 16ft  hand coat pocket. I am going to)  save these old (and bloody) clothes of  mine as a relic,  if possible."

Brandon Times: The North West  is being- thoroughly advertised in  eastern Canada through the poverty  of the settlers who have been brought  here by Mr.Sifton. In last Saturday's  Clobc the following news item appeared: ,"A telegram was sent to  Yorkton yesterday authorizing the  purchase of four milch, cows, to ; be  sent to the Dtjukhobor villages/where  milk is ':greatly needed: for the sick."  Following this announcement is the  list of subscriptions from. people all  over Ontario for the relief of the Rus  slans who have been brought here,  regardless of their condition, for the  purpose of padding out Mr. Slfton's  immigration returns. Each week acknowledgement Is made of:' the subscriptions received for the..Duokho-  bors, so that the people of the east  are constantly reminded of the condition of these unfortunate people  with whi"h the Laurier government  is populating the west.  The Edmonton Post advocates the  extension of the liquor license system to the unorganized districts north  of Alberta. It is well known that  large quantities of liquor are taken  into the , northern; country each:year  and that it is consumed by those who  live there is reasonable to suppose.  Tt is the duty of the government at  steps to suppress the business or to  take _the_ easier course .Vol legalizing  the   trade.    Would "it not~be  in  the  licensed  after Sunday school at 3:15.

U'he first feature Unit must  strike everybody who follows the  current of events with any interest is  Ihe entire collapse of the Cotton  provincial party. Aflei* its so-called  cor.vention'i'ifc Now Wes'.minstei' the  l.-il.o pi-ovinciiil goveiiimeuL parly  seems to havo placidly given np the  ghost without a sign or struggle. Of  all the numerous crop of ciindidates  who have come out or been brought,  out on this side or that, t.he Hiskai.d  clous not. remember to have noticed  a single one who declared liimself ns n  Cotton supporter. tu this riding Mr.  Keltic, in order tn get any standing  ground at, nil, had lo declare himself ,*i  Liberal, and after an exciting contest  for the Inst place, go down as one of a  liberal delegation to Vancouver,  pi'ML-li-iilly instructed to vole for  party linos. Keen tbo Now Westminster Columbian, which was Mr.  Cotton's firm supporter, and. in fact,  called his so termed convention, lias  given it np as hopoli'ss. In last Tuesday's hsue it said:  *' The provisional louder of the  People's Party, which used lo be, of  .-ill Provincial political panic-', muslin touch with tin* people of British  Columbia, has practically admit ted  his want of confidence: in possessing  thu confidence of tho people, by  shrinking from calling a Provincial  convention, though asked lo do <o by  a large nnd representative meeting of  the Lower Mainland.  If anything could show that "it. is  time for a change " in political align-  mt.'iits, in British Columbia, we inn'l  imngine anything that could show it  moi'e. strikingly than lids signal object lesson of the People's Party, in  its decndenc:e, nfinid to call a convention, nnd the Liberals of the Province  achieving such a splendid success as  is ass-tired, though the convention to  wliich they aro rallying, from far and  ���������iienr.-wiib���������nilled���������irrc'cula.-iyr-:ignin?r  the genera! clesiro. and with very short kv."  Another point which is gradually  shaping itself is the very obvious fact  that, the most up-to-date and progressive section of the prm-tuce are the  very ones which are fi'. most for the  introduction of party linos.
