Typhoid in Phoenix
■Typhoid    fever    is very  prevalent
at   Pheoeiiix and the epidemic is taxing   to the    utmost  the  capacity of
the local hospital.    In a letter dated
Dec. 19th published iu the  Victoria
Times J. L. Martin secretary treasurer
of the General Hospital makes an  urgent appeal   for  assistance.    Up to
that date, there were over sixty casos
and four death.    Two  had  perforation of tho bowels requiring operations,
ono of whom died,    The nurses' rooms
at the hospital have been turned   into
wards and the city council have   con
verted the city hall   into a    hospital.
Nurses have been brought from Spokane, Victoria, Vancouver, Now Westminster,  Calgary    end   Nelson.    To
meet this extraordinary expense, subscription lists have  been   circulated,
and tho citizens and mining companies have responded liberally.    According to the lowest estimate it will take
from 11200 to 91500 more than now
provided, to carry lho hospital through
this    expense.    The   health    ollicers
have traced tho eause of thn fever   to
a dairy which has since been   closed.
Later reports   indicate a distressing
state of affairs, and  since   tho   letter
was written, there havo been a mini
ber   of   deaths.    KlToctivo   measures
should ho taken throughout the province to render assistance to our stricken neighbors.
Christmas Tree.
The annual Christmas tree enter
tainment for the children of tho town
was held in the Presbyterian church
on Saturday evening, aud was greatly
enjoyod by the children and also by
their friends, who were pleased to see
tho children so happy. A very niee
little programme of songs, dialogues,
recitations, etc. was given by the
children, after which the presents
from a well loaded Christmas truo were
distributed by the time honored Santa
Clans. Noue of tho children in town
wero overlooked and their tunning
smiling countenances as they stepped
up to receive their gifts showed their
pleasure.
As the grown up people gazed at
the beautiful presents they could not
help recalling tbo time When Santa
Claus did not carry in his pack such
an assortment. A pair of warm mittens, woolen socks ard knitted scarfs
used tube tlio limit for meri, all mado
by busy loving fingers, in secrecy, in
tin." to surpriio the loved one by
Christmas. The girls got pin cushions,
a bit of ribbon or some other bit of
finery which to them was the dream
of a year. Tho children had a jumping Jack, a wooly sheep tin animals,
a china hooded doll, a ball of pop
corn and a half a dozen sticks of
hoar hound arid peppermint candy but
they ft ere happy and valued  tho gifts.
'•li was ono ot the best entertainments ever hold in Yinir" was the universal verdict of the   au liouco  that
attended the play, "A Lnil   Friend'
presented in Miners'  Union  Hill on
Christinas evening, by tho Ymir Dramatic Club.    The hall  was well   tilled
with  au appreciative   audience, who
manifested their appreciation  of thi
efforts of the performers by  repeated
applause and no murmur of disapproval was heard from any one.    The  oh-
ect to which the pro mods wore  to  be
devoted viz. the Ymir g.'Leral hospital attracted a considerable crow i from
the mines and  also from   Salm i   and
Erie, who all returnud to their homes
next   day,   well   please I    with  their
Christmas  entertainment    in   Ymir.
The members of the club aro all well
Known young people of Y.ijir, ra nt of
whom had never app i .red on the stage
before so largo an au fieiree, and naturally felt a little nervous.less as to their
ability to sustain  their   several   parts.
This nervousness,   however    entirely
disappeared as soon as they faced  the
audience whose attention   was secured
from the    start.    Tho    manner    in
which  lhe several parts   were   interpreted gave  evidence of careful study
ns well as considerable histrionic talent.   A no -stage considerably larger
than tl.e old one had been erected and
the stag:, settings a Ide! greatly tu the
appearance of the hall.
The play itself, wHjoh is a cemody-
dram i in four acts, is a rather heavv
ouc for amateurs to attempt, but there
was rnit a dull in > .in.it from the rise
of the curtain until the conclusion of
tho fourth actat 10..S0.
Tl.o Herald does not desiro to flatter
any of tli i perfor mors but in justice to
them it can sincerely * iy that there
was n.it a we»'c pirt iu th* cist of
characters, each being assigned tho
role best suite! to their ability. To
this was to a great o.ueut due the success of tho performance,
As Sylvia, the. nogloetod wit's of
Gilbert Fansliaw, a nosupapor man,
Miss Lilly Keefe showed a true conception of the part. Her enunciation
woe perfect and h**r b*Xriug on the
stage was in harmony with the part.
Tho interviews between Sirs. Fan-
shaw and Senor Raymond Alvarez,
an unscrupulous Spanish diplomat who
attempts to allur* hor away from her
home gave ample scope for the talents
of Miss Ivecfi* and il. J. McKencio.
As Alvarez, Mr. McKeazio had, perhaps, the heaviest part in tho play,
but he was cjual to the occasion aud
represented tho cyrrical con icienceloss
Spaniard, iu a manner which could
scarcoly lie improved upon. Tho part
of _$rn. Merry in *n a jolly young widow, sister of Mrs Fvishaw, was nd -
mirably sustained throughout by Miss
Clark. Everything she attempt.. 1
from rescuing hor sister from the pow.
er af the deceitful Spaniard to loading
a dilatory lover on to a proposal, was
done with a grace which charmed the
audience. Miles Mclnnes, as Royal
Playfard, everybody's friend, who wa*
desperately iu lovo with Mrs. Merry-
man, was perfectly tit home in the
part of the embarrassed lover. Through
out thd wholo performance ho never
forgot that hu was there to obey the
conimaii.it of Mrs Merryman and to
counteiact the schemes of tho wily
Spaniard. The most amusing parts
in the play wero Mr. and Mrs. O'Kolly
which were taken by C. Hilligoss and
Mrs Bothurhsm. both of whom received well merited  applause,    Thoif
oourtshipand debut inn eocioty aft.--
"inakin a put o' money" was ospeciaiiv
amusing. <*. R. lv eefe took tho
double parts of Nubbin?, the bake*
boy, anJ Mente, Alvarez' servant, in,
both of which he asquitted himialf
well, As Arthur, the seven yeas ohj
son of Mr. and Mrs. Fan-.haw, Eddiq
O'Neil showu^i an understanding of ti.,.
part and was rpiito at hum * before tl| I
audience. J. N, McDonald took tl|S
part of Gilbert Fi-;sh»_-, ,i ruwsp tp ..■
man, aud during the progress of tl|(
play had several experiences, w.'iic i
wero entirely new to lii.it in his newspaper work.
Before the curtain rose Dr. Qlliatl
accompanied by Miss Jessie MoLeo
nn the piano played several selection*
from The Bohemian Girl, which as i-
always the ease when they favor i,
Ymir audiencn wore well received
Between the acts the .Vfi-.-ie-i Julie,
contributed a piano duet in their n-
uul graceful style. Miss CUrk gav.
a vocal selection and Tom Wilson re
cited Jean llip'iste, ii| his o»,i inim-
icablo style.
At the conclusion of the programiili
tlio ball was cleared and nearly al.
the audience remained to enjoy a fon

(Continued from last week)
The poor mother hastily threw  on
a wrap as the hour   drew   nigh   and
stooping for a moment to press a kiss
upon the lips of her  sleeping darling,
hurried forth  into    the   Light.    She
was met by a storm of wind and blinding snow that at any other time,   she
must have shrunk from in terror.    On
aud on she panted, and not until   she
was ready to  fuint   from exhaustion
did she roalize that she was facing   a
blizzard.    She reached the turn in the
*-oad that led to the doctor's house  at
last so she thought, floundering through
drifts Waist deep,   she    struggled   on
desperately.   ''Father of mercies, spare
me and guide me   to my   darling  if
ordy to comfort her dying hour",    was
her pity ful    prayer, She was growing
warmer     now and     began     to   feel
drowsy .sleepyjjbut she well knew what
that meant and rousing herself struggled oh with all her remaining strength.
Whither she knew not, but it seemed
to her j, that it  must   have _teen   for
days.
Torn .Sheppard and Dr. Gordon both
started    for the   home of the Masons
at about   the    same   time.    One to
tell Jack that   he   had   a   place   for
him   in   the    works    al   ia-t;   the
Other on professional service.   Dr.Gor-
den knew   that Mrs.  Mason was   a-
'one, and th inning she might bj unable
to send for him on such a stormy night
decided not to wait for t he summons.
He knocked at the door  but   hearing
no response, gently  turned   the knob
und   walked in.    He    thought   Mrs
Mason must be aslo.-p.    "ls that you
uum.n i" came a teebb   child's   voice
from the adjoining   bod   room.     'No
my Utile girl it is I, the doctor",   he
replied soothingly. He3uw at once that
there was a change for  the better   in
his little   pitient's condition.    "O.i"
said Maininie disappointedly,  "Where
is ray mamma"!    He   was   about   to
reply that he did not   know when   it
occurred to him that it might be   best
to temporize.      He   knew    that   the
mother could not be far  away unless,
like a flash he suspected the real truth.
But it nn ant certain death to the child
to let her become   excited  now.    "0
mamma will   come   soon"   said   the
doctor hastily   preparing   a ^draught
from his medicine case   which   Mamie
drauk without protest aud a few miu-
; tes later was quietly sleeping.
Dr.   Gordon    was   in     a    rather
awkward predicament;     what should
he do?   If Mrs. Masou started out in
the storm for his house as he  suspected, she must be looked   after.    How
could he leave the child   alone'   The
front door was snddenly and not very
gently thrown open,  and   there stood
Tom Slioppard   covered   with    snow
and panting heavily.    But what   was
that   bundle   he   was   carrying?    A
woman, by all the saints.    "Ah doctor
said Tom as he deposited   his burden
on the sofa, *'l little thought I should
bo so fortunate as to find   you   here.
Tho   Doctor's   protessioual      stoicism
quickiy took the   place of   all   other
emotions and after a nasty examination
tie turned to Tom  and   said    "Look
here Mr.S.iep paid, this   woman must
have immediate attention, u comfortable room  and   a cn.igo of clothing
Where is iior husband"?   "Oh   doctor
bow should I know!   I thought surely
he would be home on Christinas eve".
Well, resumed tho doctor   "She   must
have a woman nurse, and at  once; go
auicklyarrd bring one from the hos-
ital but stay.    First help me to  carry
hor into some other room and look here.
On no account must her   little  girl
be allowed to see her until she regains
.-oasciousuessi"   do     you understand.
But Mrs. Mason—she will  recover,
then, but I am not  quite  sure   thatj
ibe may not suffer from an attack   of,
train te.er afterwards".

queie.t It was a rude awakening.
Slip had been wandering through tin-
woods of her dear old English home
where Tom Sheppard and Jack Mason had been rivals for liar hand. She
hail been listening again to the parting
words of her (iiud old father as he bid
her (iod speed and added brokenly:
You know my child, I do not altogether
approvo of your choice of husbands.
I confess I had hopod it would bo Tom
Sheppard, but you have chosen, and I
only hope you will never have cause
to regret it, hut now she suddenly remembered Minnie. The nurse was
trained to her profession and, besides,
had her instructions from   the  Doctor.
Ohl Nursel began Mrs. Mason, ex-
cite.lly, Where is my Mamie? There.
There, interrupted that lady approaching quiokly, Mamie is much belter bin
yoti must not tulk now, my dear.
Madam, \ou are nol deceiving mei1

I am glad it pleases you mother, replied Tom absently, as lie went to the
door in answer to the postmaster's sum
mons. Torn was soon busy witli the
morning paper. Suddenly he started
violently droppiug his cup with a crash.
Why, Tom, exclaimed his mother,
petulantly }ou have broken ono of
my line old China cups. Whal in the
world is the matter with you? Tom
began hastily gathering up the broken
pieces iu an effort to hide bis confusion

of lii.inliing his breakfast, ho rose silently and sought  bis room.

HEATH OF HON. 11. PREFQN-.

Tin* nows of the death of Hon. R.ty
:,-.on.l   Prefontajrie, Canadian  minis-
tor of marine and fisheries, which took
j.iace at   Paris on    .Monday   evening
,. is received   with    regret    by   Can*,
adians irrespective of party.    Mr. Pre
Fontaine accompanied by solicitor general Lemieux, went to  Franco a few
weeks ago in connection with the establishment of a  line qf .steamships,
between Marseilles and Canada,    llu
arrival there he complaint-,' of feelina
unwell but HQtbingsei'ious was anticip-
..ted until Monday evening   when   he
.vas  seized with an   attack   of acute
Heart clisevqea|ic) soon afterwards pass,
cl   away.    The   Frenph   government
with the   courtesy   characteristic   of
that nation has offered to extend  mil.
itary honors to   the   remains, and   a
British man of war   will   ba sent   to
conycy the body to  Canada   whero   a
state funeral will    bo   belli     In   his
.loath, Canada  loses a   capable public
servant and tho  liberal   party one of
its strongest supporters from the  pro
vince  of  Quebec.    Mr.     J'refontaino
was    a   comparatively   young   man,
having been born  in 1850.    He  was
a typical representative of the French
Canadian race and prior to  hi.-*,   entry
into the wider arena of ll..minion   politics was for many years a prominent
figure in provincial political life,     l.n
was first elected to the  Quebec  lej*ia-
tature in 1875 and  retained  his  seat
until 1881.    From 1ST!) to   1883 ho
was mayor  of   llochel.iga   and  from
1898 to 190. was mayor of Montreal,
in 189ii ho was elected   to the  house
of commons and in 190:1 was swoin in
rt, member of the privy council us miii
ister of marine and fisheries.
His death recalls that of Sir John
Thompson, the conservative premier
of Canada, ten years ago while on a
visit to England) in the interests of
tho country ho served so well. Whilo
one died almost at the foot of tho
I hrone arid tho other on foreign soil,
l.oth find their final iesting plauo iu
tho land they loved so much.
Premier McBride is reported by tho
Vancouver papers to have stated that
he had a well formulated railway
policy to place bef.ee parliament when
next it meets. The premier, however
denies the report and says it is entirely without foundation. The Herald
does not nee any great necessity for a
vigorous railway policy on tlle part
of the government, as at tl.e present
time there is more railway construct-
on going on in the province tli 111 at
any lime cince tl.e building of tl.e
main line of the C P. It. The only
railway policy desired by the people
is for tl.e government to refuse to. give
any more subsidies cither in cash or
laud grants.
Premier Ci.npbcll-La.uern'.aii, has
outlined the policy on which he will
appeal to the British people for support at the approac'i.ng general elections. The new govermont has given
instriu-tions for the stopping of the
importation of coolies into South
Africa, until   the people of .South Af*
l-.ci-.ii Colonies, shall have expressed
.ufopinion ou the question, Ffis
utterances on Indian anvil's would
seem to imply the eafly recall or resignation of Lprd Kitchener, who
successfully appealed to the late government in his disputes with Viceroy
Lord Curz.u. He has ajso partially
committed his party on tlio ""question
of Horns lt'ile for Ireland, and thi-*
lattice will be the battle cry of tl.e
Unionists hi the present campaign.

Porphyry refers   to various  kuiils of
Compound   rock   having     a  basis  in

base   is   sometimes  claystone,   lurn-
stone.compa.t feldspar or jade, pitch-
Slone, pearl stone an.l  obsidian.    The
imbedded  parts are ordinarily oribo-
cluse feldspar and  i|iiartz,    the former
in   more     or less     iii>tii.et   crystals.
There arc   porphyries    of   different
ages, One variety isfoii.nl    graduating
into granite  anil yuciss, but  this does
