By Morice Gerard
Murgatroy<l hail comfortable bachelor Quarters in Henrietta siroci, (*ov-
ent Garden. On his return from
Mayfulr ho found hlfl sitting-room on
t.ht* first floor tenanted by his friend
Horace Bnggtiloy, who was lounging
In ono Chair, reel lug his foot on another, and propitiating solitude with a
Hallo, Bagguley, yon back?
Yps, safe and sound; not oven a
touch of African fever to boast of by
way of a rcmlnlccotico.
Well, I'm precious glad to have you
bach. It would have heor. a long six
months without you, If wo had not
been as busy as bee3 at the Pioneer.
1 recognized your fist In a copy I
picked up at Southampton. I tell you
what, any boy���you Bell tho Pioneer.
People have got to fancy tho paper
knows a thing or two; and knowledge
Is property Just now In tho Press
world. I heard people talking about
It In the train.
Horace Bagguley was a tall dark
man, with piercing black eyes, and
an aquiline nose. He had just returned from a six months' shooting
tour in the Veldt. Like Murgatroyd
he was a barrister by profession, but
he had been In the House nearly ten
years, representing the Cheshire constituency in which his estates lay.
Don't you feel/incllnec, to kick sometimes at hiding your light under a
bushel, old chap���for the Pioneer ls
a bushel to you���especially as the ducats are of no consequeuco In your
It is all experience, replied Murgatroyd. Ho added: Experience Is a
power ot a kind as well as knowledge.
Well, yes, It's experience ot a sort;
but one is apt to get shoppy. That
editorial 'wo' is so impregnable in the
office, and so Insignificant elsewhere,
that the office-coat gets magnified into
a toga.
Really you are getting quite didactic. When did this vein of heavy
humor seize you, most potent Horace7
Oil, one has time to think on board
ship, especially if you don't care about
cither poker or flirtation. So I took
the 1 rouble to think about   you a bit
On the principle that the proper
Study of mankind is man, eh?
There you are shoppy again. I
know all those dlctlonary-of-qiiotatlon
.things by heart, simply from the way
they are sneaked into every article to
turn journalism into���what it never
(���an bo or ought to be���literature.
Very well; you are running to seed.
All the bigger crop by and by.
Vou are complimentary.
What are you going to do tonight?
Docs the Pioneer claim you, or is it to
be a little dinner at Delmonico's and
a theatre afterwards? 1 don't know a
bit what's on.
1 have some fish o[ my own to fry
tonight, and I am going ta give you
Nearly Impossible to Heal Skin.
Badly Hurt. Sore, Red and Inflamed, Could Not Sleep, Cuticura Soap and Ointment Healed.
Bowramn River, Manitoba.��� "When I
was thirteen years of a��n I got my shin
badly hurt ami when boalod tho skin was
attached tothebono. Tho
least bruise would injur..
It and It was nearly Impossible t�� beat. Tho sore
wuuld bo very red and
Inflamed round tho odgus
juhI had u burning sensation. When oxtrasoro I
could not sleep al night on
account of tho pain. I always wore a col ton bandage on It from tho
ankle, to Uio knee. Kor a number of years
I used sticking plasters, tben got a salvo.
1 saw Iho advertisement offering a freo sam-
j.le, of Cuticura Soap and Ointment and sent
for a sample and purchased somo moro and
In elx days I ho soro wns healed completely.''
(Sinned; James Edwards, Juno SI, 11)12.
Treatment: Gently smear the affected
pails with Cuticura Ointment, on the end
of iho linger, but do not rub. Wash off tho
Cuticura Ointment in five rnlnutos with
Cuticura Soap and hot water and continue
foathJng for some minutes. This treatment
is best on rising and retiring. At other times
use Onticura Soap freely for tho toilet and
bath, to assist in preventing inflammation,
irritation and clogging of the pores. Sold

a commission.
Quite dramatic
Vou are my executor,
it lias not come I   that yet, I hope.
Bagguley spoke lightly but wag
watching his frl *nd keenly all the
same, under his dark brows. He re-
oognlteed serious Intention in the tones
of Murgatroyd'a voice.
1 want you to look in here after tho
play���1 advise Daly. If I am not
buck scud a nolo you will find on this
table to Inspector Murphy, Scotland
Yard, and see thnt lie nttends to it at
Alive or dead? Surely this Ib not
within the four corners-of your duty
towards yonr neighbor���the chief ot
the Pioneer?
No; for the first time in my life 1
am going to do a woman's commission.
Where does it take you?
Soho way.
You hardly look tho part.
Oh, 1 shall dress for it; I have lhe
costunio here. It is not. the first
time 1 have been into an opium den
or a thieves' kitchen. Only this time
I am in pursuit of stolen goods, and
that is not always quite safe.
Why not smd Murphy in the first
Because I want the thief quite as
much as the property.
I should have thought the police did
There is tills difference���I want
him to come willingly; they prefer the
persuasion to a pair of bracelets.
May I come with you?
I am afraid not. The errand I'm
on requires experience of n kind
which you do not get even In South
Africa. x
Shall I wait while you dress?
If you like.
In twenty minutes tlie door of the
sitting-room < pened, and an old man
came ��� in with shaggy cye-brov,s,
straggling beard aud whiskers, and a
coat patched and stained.
Bagguley st".red speechless with
amazement; then he laughed.
By jove, it's a good thing I knew
whom to expest. Why even a dun
wouldn't know -.ou in that get-up.
A wrinkled smile distorted the
features of the singularly old man.
Yes, I think it will do���for an opium den.     Now I must be off.
Murgatroyd threw up the window
and whistled twice. After a few minutes a growler drew up at the door.
Better stay here till I'm gone.
After summoning the cab, Murgatroyd had scribbled a few lines on a
sheet of paper. He now placed this
in an envelope, directed it and threw
it into the middle of the table.
That's the note to tell them to look
for me.
All right, IT. attend to It, if needs
be, which I don't expect; it will be
a wily man who gets the better of
you. Have you a knuckle-duster
with you?
Murgatroyd placed his hand, which
was wrinkled like his face, In the
deep outside pocket of his coat, and
drew out a six-chambered revolver,
the daintiest little weapon, with a
mother-of-pearl handle, ever fashioned by gun-smith'j art.
"f is a pretty toy, would make a hole
in a man further than I'm likely to
hit him.
The friends t,'.iook hands. They
were real friends and understood one
Then Murgatroyd went down stairs,
gave a direction to the cabman���and
anonymous���there is danger there if
not here, and I don't know which is
the worse of the two.
For Bagguley had been bitten once
Murgatroyd's errant", was the result
of a mental volte face. Ho had
started for Scotland Yard when he
left t'urzon Street, but a new thought
had struck him. The descrli.tion,
brief as it was, Maud Hanley had given titled to a nicety a character the
journalist had coi . across on more
than oik* occasion.
Jemmy .Ionian, as his mates called
him���It. was moro than probable far
remote from his real name���was one
of the best known characters in lhat
manufactory of strange types���Soho.
That he was an expert thief, Ihe po-
lico were well aware; and Murgatroyd had met him In the Courts more
than once; but Jemmy had tho alertness of an eel, and had invariably
escaped conviction. He was addi'led
to opium In a modified blend with
shag���it was his one weakness; and
when Murgatroyd had occasion to do
an opium den in nursuit of copy, Jemmy had been recommended as a guide,
and a safe pioneer���when on hij honor; a qualification unsuspected by his
casual acquaintances, but upon which
he pridtd himself as upon a pearl of
great price. Jimmy had the misfortune to have very bushy brows and
the characteristics Maud Hanley had
described. Although no one would
have suspected it amid the shades of
Soho, Jemmy could walk the parks
dressed In his best with the appearance of a prosperous City man���quite
the toff, as he himself expressed it.
Murgatroyd wanted Jemmy. lie
thought he knew vl.ere he could find
him as the evening closed in. The
den was only safe to the pals; but the
revolver In his pocket equalised mat-
Iters in case of a skirmish.
Dismissing his growler at the corner
Ir.f a street, Murgatroyd plunged into a
side alley, which landed 1 lm In a
court. He hesitated a m ent or two,
and then went up to a door which had
a partially defaced 8 upon it. He
knocked twice, paused while one might
count fifty, und then knockej again, a
loud single knock. There was a
shuffling footstep, and un old man
peered out. Apparently satlslkl
with tho appearance of his visitor, the
janitor threw the door back,
Murgatroyd gave him an order ! l
the words and tone which became his
character of a German Jew, and then
went on down the passage, opened
the end door and walked In. It wns
necessary that no susp'cioiis as to his
familiarity with the place should be
I raised In lhe mind of the doorkeeper.
I The room ' d half a dozen men in
it, all smoking, although  tin   night
i was yol young,      The fumes of Iho
| opium hung in a dense mass In midair. A florin;* wis Jet, banging from
the low celling, failed to light the
apartment, which was long enough to
accommodate twenty or thirty loungers.
At first Murgatroyd could not see
clearly enough to distinguish faces;
hut by the time the janitor had
brought him a. pipe tilled with the
fragrant drug iie had aatlufled himself
that the man lie Bought wns not there,
Murgatroyd BtOBbched himself on nn
ottoman, pretending to sitolto while
he watted, lie had determined to
remain an hour, and If by that time
.Ionian had not arrived at hla favorite linunt, he would revert to his original plan and cull lu the police; bul
he fell perfectly certain that In that
case Miss Hanley would never recover
her watch.
Luck or his own good Judgment favored hlni. At thi end of half an
hour the door opened again nnd two
men entered���one wus Jemmy Jordan .
Murgatroyd lingered his revolver.
It was itching for use; but he did not
want to use It, as thnt would mean
Jemmy took up a position near to
Murgatroyd; of course quite unsuspicious of the latter's identity. The man
who came in with him was on the
other side.

A Tonic Medicine is a Necessity
at Thit Season.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People are an all year round tonic,
blood-builder and nerve-restorer. But
they are especially valuable in the
spring when the system is loaded with
impurities as a result of the indoor
life of the winter months. There is
no other season when the flood ls
so much in need of purifying and enriching, and every dose of these pills
helps to make new, rich, red blood.
In the spring one feels weak and
tired���Dr. Williams' Pink Pills give
strength. In the spring the appetite
is often poor���Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills develop the appetite, tone the
stomach and aid weak digestion. It
is in the spring that poisons in the
blood find an outlet in disfiguring
pimples, eruptions and boils ��� Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills speedily clear
the skin because they go to the root
of the trouble in the blood. In He
spring anaemia, rheumatism, Indigestion, neuralgia, erysipelas and many
other troubles are most persistent
because of poor, weak blood, and it is
at this time when all nature lakes
on new life that the blood most seriously needs attention. Some people
dose themselves with purgatives at
this season, but these only further
weaken themselves. A pt.realive
merely gallops through the system,
emptying tbe bowels, but it does not
cure anything. On the other hand
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually
make new blood which reaches every
nerve and organ in the body, bringing new strength, rew health and vigor to weak, easily tired men, women
and children. Try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills this spring���they will not
disappoint you.

How the Federal Reserves are Being
The Dominion Forest Service has
progressed farther than any other service In Canada in Uu* laying out of
forest reserves and providing for their
proper administration. Sixteen million acres have been definitely Bet
apart by Act of Parliament to be administered ns fores! reserves. Additional areas are being examined each
year, am! somo six million acres additional aro now under temporary reservation and will shortly be added to
the reserves set apart by statute.
The mere setting apart of reserves,
though nn Important step, Is only a
preliminary one. Although, unfortunately, In somo cases it has not
been realized that anything further ls necessary, this mistake has not
been made In the federal administration.
Tho reserves have been organized
by appointing nn Inspector In charge
for each of the Western provinces.
The inspectors selected are men who
have had a thoroughly technical training In forestry anil who have shown
good administrative ability. In each
of the Inspection districts tho reserves
nreiiB are laid out In milts or forests
each under chnrgo ot it technically
trained mnn or a man experienced In
timber administration. Twelve such
divisions have already been established, and others are being organized
and manned with forest rangers as
the development of the reserves and
the lire danger may render net issary,
Those divisions do not include patrol
oul Bide ot forest reserves on the large
area of forest not Included therein.
In Bitch areas there are in addition
twelve patrol divisions each under
charge of a chief fire ranger.
On each of the forests, houses have
been erected for the forest rangers
bo that they may be close to their
work and give It careful supervision.
At different points throughout the forest, huts have been erected as headquarters for summer patrols and in
some of the more inaccessible districts. 470 miles'ot trails and roads
have been constructed so as to make
the reserves more accessible. 10
bridges have been constructed, and
100 miles of telephone have been put
ln>operation. A much enlarged programme of such Improvement work
has been laid out for the coming year.
A conference of the Inspectors was
recently held at Ottawa to plan the
work for the comlrg season and the
construction work on the reserves will
be pushed as rapidly as possll> so as
to have the reserves made Immune
from Are, as they are in Europe, in
the shortest possible time.
A Puzzle
What puzzles me, said Uncle
Snooks as he look .1 up from a book
he was consulting, is this: It a man
ls standing on the side of a hill or
mountain how Is ho .to settle in his
mind whether he ls on an acclivity
or declivity? According to my dictionary here tlie former is a slope up
and the latter a slope down. I've
���never yet seen a slope up that didn't
slope down.

C.P.R. Flower Day
It Is just tw .ty-four years slnco
an employ of the C.P.R, raised a
few varieties of dower seeds In his
own garden and distributed them
among his friends In the company
with the idea ot beautifying to somo
extent tho somewhat barren aspect of
the stations on lhe railroad round
houses and yar! offices on the com*
pany's property. It was a small be-
Binning Im today the C.P.R. Is celebrating its semi-annual flower day and
the little seed planted in the earlier
day lias crown to such an extent that
it requires a flora', department to handle the work and instead of a lew
packages  ot  seeds  handed  out  to   t
limited number of employee no less
trail 150,000 packets of various varieties have been distributed to station
agents, sectlo*. foremen, those in
charge of round houses, yard olllces
and all employes living on company's
property, showing an Inclination towards the cultivation of dowers. In
the fall a million of bulbs were given
out and lhe beno.'t of these ia now being fell, as from the Atlantic to the
Pacific and even on Vancouver Island, the traveller will nee the delightful results from the full planting of
theso luxurious flowers. Even in tho
midst of the prairies where men are
permanently encamped working on the
Irrigation ditches at forty different
points have seeds been sent for cultivation, which ls another demonstration of the effect the tending of
fit vers lias on the human mind and
body. These men tako a great delight In caring for the plants as they
gradually grow r.!ld enjoy their fragrance as much nj "the man nearer
home. Tha influences and encouragement of flower growing on the C.P.K.
during the last twenty-four years has
materially assisted in the inauguration
of floral societies in almost every
town along the lines of the syBtem,
and an examination will show that
actively connect I with these hundreds of societies ar.* employes of
the C.P.R. whose first lesson in
flower culture and the love of the
beautiful were learned in the service
of the company under the stimulating Influences of the Floral depart-
: ent. Station improvements have
led to town Improvements and often
the C.P.R. is asked to co-operate
with some of these institutions for the
beautifying ot open Bpaces, and in
many Instances the station ls a sort
of bureau for flower Information,
while the floral department at Montreal ls looked upon as the headquarters of flower Information for the
whole of the C.P.R. system from the
Atlantic to the Padflc. In every
division special prizes are
awarded for the best displays and
many of the employes have become so
Interested in the work as to try their
results against the best in the country by exhibition at the big exhibit
Ions. In many Instances they have
been very successful and have carried
away the premie, prizes Many
agents have wonderful vegetable gardens in the west for the climate is
such that anything can be grown.

Advice to Expectant Mothers
The experience of Motherhood Is a try.
ing one to most women and marks distinctly an epoch in their lives. Not one
woman in a hundred is prepared or understands how to properly care for herself. Of course nearly every woman
nowadays has medical treatment at
such times, but many approach the
experience with an organism unfitted
for the trial of strength, and when it
is over her system has received a shock
from which it is hard to recover. Following right upon this comes the nervous strain of caring for the child, and
a distinct change in the mother results.
There is nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children,
and indeed child-birth under the right
conditions need be no hazard to health or
beauty. The unexplainable thing is that,
with all the evidence of shattered nerves
and broken health resulting from an unprepared condition, and with ample time
in which to prepare, women will persist
in going blindly to the trial.
Every woman at this time should rely
upon Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, a most valuable tonic and invig-
orator of the female organism.
In many homes
once childless there
are now children because of the fact
that Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable
Compound makes
women normal,
healthy and strong.
If yon want special advice write to
Lydia E. Ptnkliam Medicine Co. (confident lal) Lynn, Mass. Yonr letter will
be opened, read and answered by a
Koman and held In strict confidence.
The Pill That Brings Relief .���When
after one has partaken of a meal he ls
oppressed by feelings of fullness and
pains In the stomach he suffers from
dyspepsia, which will ipersis*; if It
be not dealt with. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills are the very best medicine
that can be taken to bring relief.
These pills are specially compounded
to deal with dyspepsia, and their
sterling qualities in this rt-jpect can
be vouched for by legions of users.
Exact Location
It doesn't always pay a lawyer to
be stern with the posing witnesses
when cross-examining them. They
are often as clever as the attorney
and the following anecdote Illustrates
how one witness put one over on a
bright young lawyer.
Sir, said tho luwyer sternly, you
need not state your impressions. We
want facts. Nov.*, henceforward, answer me categorically. You say you
live next door to the defendant?
Yes.     To the north of Uim?
No.     To the south?
No.     To De west, then?
No.    ,
Ah, said the lawyer sarcastically, at
last we are likely to get down to one
real fact. You live to tho east of
him, do you?
How Is that, sir? said the astonish
ed attorney You say you live next
door to him yet you live neither to
tho eRst, west, south nor north. What
do you mean by that sir?
I thought perhap. you were incom-
pcten to form the impression that
we live in a flat, said the witness;
but I see I must inform you that he
lives next door above me.

I have a big brother who would make
it warm for you, and that I have some
of tne sweetest little billets-doux that
would make it expensive for you,
George dear.
But you know I haven't said It.
I know you haven't, my pet.
So we'd better get married, hadn't
I think so, my precious.

Well, I'd rather not be married and
be sorry I wasn't than be married and
sorry I was.
Fate of the Fare
The portly gentleman hailed the
passing cab. Cabby, he said, ?t.5C
if you drive me to the station in lest
than fifteen minutes.
In he jumped and away went cabby
at a rattling rate. On reaching tins
station he was delighted to see that
he had still three minutes to spare.
As soon as the door was opened the
fa're stepped out, panting and mopping
his streaming brow.
Whatever's the matter? asked cab-
Matter! Phew! Can't you see that
the bottom's dropped out of the cab
and I've had to run all the way to th*
station. Phew! Then, as he looked
about him, his purple face becoming
mauve. Cabby, he said, you'vs
brought me to the wrong station, and
I've lost the train.

Letter to the Editor
Dear Sir:
As you are no doubt well aware
this district is the happy hunting
grounds   for stock  company  promoters of every description,  who
offer "gilt edge propositions" that
would deceive the "very elect," do
you uot think it is about time a
note of warning was sounded to
some of those who "fall" for any
plausablc yarn  of  "easy money"
being made or  "twenty per cent
guaranteed."    Every other day  I
am approached by  some of these
financial vampires who preach in a
mans chest and if he is not careful
they will fan him to sleep with their
plausahle hot air and depart with a
big load   of his financial   blood.
These stock selling promoters are
past masters of the craft.    I have
watched the process of these enchantments and alurements as they
sing them with the voice of a sireue.
They have studied the weaknesses
of human nature, there is no emotion  too sacred  for  them to play
upon, or no passion they will not
arouse.   Tlie tend of human nature
to secure something for nothing is
not killed yet.    There is a large, in
fact tlie largest percentage of humanity, have failed to realize that
when any investment pays over ten
percent it is questionable, and becomes a speculation.    There has
been  thousands and thousands of
dollars thrown away by people who
have been hoodwinked into schemes
as solid as the waters of the Punt-
ledge River.     They parted with
their   money   expecting "big returns" but the deferring of their
hopes has failed to make their hearts
sick or their pocket books unhealthy
and they are still taking chances of
the wildcat nature in any catchpenny    "proposition"   that comes
along.    I am not endtvouring  to
save  the suckers, us Canadians-
classified as D. F., from the clutches
of the sharper.    That is impossible,
I am soundiug "a warning" note,
to those who have the average  in
telhgence but  are  apt  to "fall."
In nine cases out of ten the "proposition"   laid before   him  looks
good. Some promoters cite successful Trust companies as a bait.    He
tells of the Dominion and Permanent Loan as examples of financial
success and investment, failing to
show genius in the men behind who
made them so, aud the lack of ability
in the men behind the Co. he seeks
to promote,  Match companies selling stock show the returns of the
Eddy Co., but fail to show any
man in the directorate of the company of the same calibre as Eddy.
Stores Company will hold Lipton
up as their guide and system but
fail to mention that no two Liptons
live in the same age, wireless companies without the genius of a Marconi will tell of the dividends of the
Marconi Co.   Many of the present
day companies selling stock to the
public, were there the returns they
claim in the concern they would
not need  to peddle their shares
around as they do.   Many of the
promoters  of the   "propositions"
made to us in this district are sailing so close to the fringe of the law
that it takes all their ingenuity to
escape the penitentary and I will
not gamble that they would not
land there.

The motor lorry for hauling
gravel on the Campbell river road
passed through Courtenay on Friday last. It marks that progress
which is so much to be desired in
all departments spending the public
money and it is by utilizing every
improvement that the whole community benefits. Rumours are
current that the advent of a motor
lorry will be resented by those who
work on the roads; such recalls to
mind the introduction of agricultural machinery in England which
caused such lawless acts on the part
of the agricultural labourers notably
stack firing and the destruction of
the hated machinery. To-day the
use of machinery on the farm is
universal and it is bv extending its
use to our roads that the Government is going to have full value for
money laid out. Such actions let
it be repeated, benefits the whole
community and if twa miles of
road improvements are secured instead of one mile, so much the

not to be determined except un tho
wales, for clothes were worn baggy In
those days, and the gentleman's apparel wns cut in the height of fnshlon.
In company with this young mnn was
another, teu years his senior, whom he
culled Kill, the hitter addressing the
former ns .Johnny. Hill wns n heavy
eet innn, plainly dressed nnd unassuming In his demeanor, lie deferred to
his slighter companion in some ways
and assumed authority orer him In
others. For Instance, meeting n chill
wind from the mountains he suggested
to Johnny Hint he put on his overcoat.
Johnny objected on the ground that ui
wns already too warm, whereupon Bill
ordered hlni in no uncertain tone to
do ns lie directed, and tne little fellow
obeyed him instantly.
During the stagecoach journey thnt
followed n stop was mnde for a change
ot horses at a station composed of tho
relay, a gambling house and a saloon.
<t> ��2> u��<J^SCL_
The relay wns for Ihe singe line, the
gambling house nnd the saloon lor thu
people of the surrounding country.
"This mounlnin nir has made me
chilly." said he who wns culled Bill.
"I think I'll go over to that saloon and
gel something to wnrm me up."
To the surprise of the other passengers, he did iiiit Invite his companion
to join iiim, though lie extended nn Invitation to cmli und nil of Ihem. One
innn accepted, the others declined! and
the two walked to tlie saloon.
There wns probably uot a worse
crowd to lie found In Ihe wild west in
those days than wns congregated 111
that saloon. Five men were loitering
about, each mnn wearing a sombrero,
most ol them a stubble benrd nbout
nu eighth ol nn Inch long, a woolen
shirt anrl twn revolvers strapped to lhe
belt. Their faces were red from frequent potations, nnd they were then
bunging about lhe place "Inylng" for
some one to liny Ihem a drink.
Bill entered wltb the man he hnd
invited to join him. The two stepped
un to JJie bar nnd culled tor whisky.
They were niiout to drink It when one
of the loungers, coming forwnrd, snid:
"See yere. m-nts, whnt kind o' manners do yon i.hi Ihem. drlnkin by yourselves without mi Invite for any other
gent present? '
"It's not tin* ustom," Bill responded,

cither. There Isn't any of you hero
who would be n match for me."
The loiterers held u conference, and
one ot them, thinking he could tackle
the stranger, offered to do so. Bill
shook his bend. "It wouldn't be a fair

"Trot hlni out." was the reply to
Bill asked the man be had Invited to
drink to go for bis friend, and Johnny
soon came into the saloon, [lis appearance ut once excited a guffaw, the
object of which stood looking somewhat puzzled. Bill explained the situation to hlni and, turning to tho
crowd, suld:
���'He's a better man than he looks,
but if any of you gentlemen wants to
bet you can knock him out I wouldn't
object to going you for a small amount
on it."
There was another conference, which
resulted iu tbe scraping together of
$12, all there wus among the westerners, and they nominated a man they
called Biff Hunker to stand up against
the little fellow and win a similar
amount to be put up by Bill. The
stage driver wns called in for stakeholder, and a ring was formed on the
level ground before the saloon, Johnny took off his coat and vest, retaining
his shirt. Had he doffed this also
some surprise might have been created
nt the muscle lying under the soft
white skin of his arm. As it was,
Johnuy didn't show for much more
than when bis coat was on him.
His antagonist stood six feet one In
his stockings aud was a powerful man.
The only thing against bim was the
use of too much liquor, and he could
not be expected to last very long
against one of equal strength, ftenliz-
ing this element of weakness, he went
nt Johnnv like n bull, Intending to
crush him out at once. Bnt Johnny
pirouetted like a dancing master and
before his enemy could recover dealt
him a smart blow on the nose that
drew tirst blood.
This first episode caused those who
had calculated to win a litt-le money
to doubt the ease with which It could
be obtained. Johnny didn't seem in a
hurry to tackle his enemy, keeping on
the defensive. But it soon became apparent to tlie bystanders thnt there
wns a cat and a mouse game going on.
only the mouse was playing with the
cat to the cat's discomfiture. The big
man struck out with blows heavy
enough to break every bone In his antagonist's body, but the body was never in the place at which lie aimed.
Johnny sidestepped nnd ducked and
fell hack, his enemy vainly trying to
find him with his big fist.
The westerner soon lost his wind
nnd from that time staggered about
like the hulk of a derelict tossed by
the waves.
"I don't want to hurt him," Johnny
replied, still dancing about In a circle.
Presently tlie big mnn gathered his
forces for a llnnl effort. Johnny dived
between his legs, rose and landed his
enemy on his back.
The fallen man lay quiet, for a few
moments, when he wns helped to his
feet by one of his friends. But he was
breathing bnrd nnd positively declined
to renew the encounter,
"Gentlemen," snid Hill, "step inside
and join me in a tipple, Mr. .Stakeholder, give the gentlemen back their
stak . Come In, ull. I've been Interrupted in my refreshment long enough
and am very chilly."
All Hocked into the saloon except the
victor, who remained outside. i
"Sny, stranger,"  called  one nf the !
party as he saw Johnny walking away
to the couth, "where y' goin'?"
Johnny made no reply, and the other
followed the crowd into the saloon.
"What's the matter with the kid?"
he asked of Bill.    "Don't he drink?"
"Not just now. You see. he's a
featherweight boxer on his way to
Frisco to a match made with the Sacramento bantam. I'm his trainer. I
don't let him drink."
So many und so varied were the ejne-
nbifluns to this stnrtling announcement
thai Iliey could not be separated one
from another
"Now, gentlemen." continued the
speaker, "1 see that the coach is ready

The crowd went with hlni to tbe

Hon. Joseph Turned a Vigorous
Enemy  Into a Strong Friend.
Away back in the early sixties there
lived in Cornwall a colored barber
named T. H. White, a well-educated
man. a keen politician, nnd a chnrne-
ter all-around. This wus iu time of
negotiations preceding Confederation,
und there were imiiiy distinguished
men in the town to see the late Hon.
John Sandlield Muedniinld. wbo was
among the political leaders of those
Barber White wns the only manipulator of the razor in Cornwall at
that time and naturally had the honor
of shaving those of tlie publicists who
needed his services. He was fairly in
his element, and us be was a good
talker be acquired plenty of political
information, which he retailed to inn
local customers to good effect afterwards.
For some reason or other, White
had developed a great aversion to
Hon. Joseph Howe of Nova Scotia,
one of the fathers of Confederation,
and was -never tired of abusing him,
nothing short of murder being too vile
to  lay to  bis charge.
One morning a stranger came off
tbe early train, and as soon as tlie
barber shop was open, betook himself
thither for a shave. It was not long
before White introduced his favorite
topic, and the name of Howe came up.
"Politicians is a pretty queer lot,
suh," lie said. "Some is good and
some is bad, but that Howe is the
worst of the bunch. If he goes on be
will ruin this country. Oh, dat villain,
Joe Howe, he ought to be in the penitentiary." White was so excited that
the stranger could not get in a word;
what he did say only encouraging the
barber to further talk.
The operation over, the stranger
handed White a dbllar. with the remark: "You're a good barber, and
your conversation is very interesting,
even if it is somewhat personal. Keep
the change."
A few minutes later a townsman
came in and asked who the late customer was.
"I don't know," replied White, "but
he is a  perfect gentleman."
"Why," said the townsman, "that'-i
the Hon. Joseph Howe, of Nova Scotia: be has just gone over to see Sand-
"Can't help that," rejoined White,
"I'll stick to what I said," and from
that time forward the apostle of Confederation from the Bluenoses had no
firmer defender than the black barber from Cornwall.
A Flame For a Trumpet.
If a vibrating tuning fork be placed
in a  flame tbe sound is markedly  re-
enforced.    Starling with this fact, nn
English  scientist  has  devised  a  new
form  of  phonograph,  In   which  the
flame takes tlie place of the trumpet
ordinarily used.    The sounds thus re- ,
enforced nn* easily heard throughout
n large room.   The explanation of the
action of lhe flame Is that the sound '
waves falling upon ll change Its com-
bustlon from n continuous to nn Intermittent   form,  the  burning gas  being
thus   thrown  into  a  series  of  waves
that are more powerful than the origi- |
mil sound waves, re-enforce them nnd \
thus magnify the sound.���St. I.ouis Ue-
Most of Europe's Crowned Women
Could Earn a Livelihood.
If a queen lost her job could she
earn a living?
if Lor oastles and wealth vanished
with her title could she work like
you or 1?
Would she    be cleverer   than   our
Canadian daughters ol riches, who
rarely know how to mend a tear, to
wash n dish, and who, hy no chance,
could cook a meal?
It hns long been a matter of common remark thai among the royalty
of enrlh not n few possess exceptional talents -talents which would bring
them in good, hard coin if they wish-
mI to turn them to that end". The

manufacture interests and pleasures

But if Queen Elisabeth of Belgium
was dethroned to-morrow and left
absolutely penniless she would have
a profession at which she could ens-
ily support herself and ber children.
The first thing she would do would
b fo go to a hospital in Belgium and
become a staff physician, or, if Unit
place were not open to her, take a
position as a nurse until she could
afford to open an office as a physician.
For she has had a thorough medical training, and only a few years
before her marriage to King Albert
she took her degree as doctor of
medicine at the University of Leipzig. She is tho daughter of Duke
Charles Theodore of Bavaria, a renowned occulist, and before her mnr-
riuge assisted him in his work and
had active practice and nursing in a
hospital at Kreuth.
She still continues her interest in
the work nnd lias recently built the
Albert-Elizabeth dispensary, where
s-lie conducts classes for the young
nurses and illustrates her talk by
practical application of bandages.
Many a charitable patient has come
from this hospital happy, in the acquaintance of the queen and proudly
displaying a bandaged arm with the
gratified words:
"Her majesty herself dressed my
arm. No wonder it is healing so
She is chief physician to her husband and her children, und King Albert wrote at one time to his sister:
"It is of no use pretending to have
a. headache to escape from some stupid function, for Elise always doctors me up and sends me along."
Medicine is not her only interest,
however. She is un enthusiastic motorist nnd knows every trick of driving, ns well as of repairing. On the
last visit of the king and queen to
France they were driving unattended
through the country near Tours,
when ono of the tires burst. The
king frankly admitted that he knew
nothing about repairing it, hut Queen
Elizabeth tucked up her luce skirt
and went to work with a will. Tlie
result was thnt they were only an
hour late to their engagement, and
the queen had added another to the
list of her achievements.
She is an eager student of literature nnd hns published books nnd

Letter to Him Announcing Her Intention  Rushed to Public Station
Paris, France.��� A dramatic attempt at suicide hy a girl ot 19, named
Noel waa prevented nt Cherbourg recently by tbe presence ot mind ot her
brother, a railway guard.
The young man was swinging himself on the footboard ot a train which
was leaving for Paris when a letter
without an envelope was handed him.
The letter contained a few incoherent
linos from Ills sister saying that she
was going to commit suicide, and that
her body would be found in the sea
at the cad of the jetty.
Young Noel at the risk of his life,
jumped from tho train, retaining hold
of the rail, and running along with
the train, gave his sister's letter to
a man at the other end of the platform, where ho swung himself on the
footboard again, shouting to his colleague to run as hard as he could with
the letter to the polioe.
Fortunately, there was a police
magistrate in the station, and more
fortunately still, there was a motorcar Just outside. The police magistrate dashed at full speed down the
jolly and arrived as Mile. Noel threw
herself into tho sea. Tho magistrate
shouted to three customs house ofll-
rers in a boat which was putting into
the harbor and they succeeded In sav
ing the girl when she was nearly
100 yards from shore. Her brother
received the news of her resuco when
the train arrived at Caen.

How  Hudson  Marchbank, After Suffering for Five Years, Found Quick
Relief and Permanent Cure In th]
Greatest of Canadian Remedies
Marchbank, King's    County,   N.B.
(Special)���After  suffering    for    five
years from kidney  ..isease,    brought
on by a strain, Hudson Marchbank,
Esq., the well-known farmer of this
place, is again a strong, healthy man,
and  another  gr...id  cure  for Dodd's
Kidney Pills has been put on record.
In an Interview Mr. Marchbank says:
"About live years ago I hurt n.y
hack from lifting,  and it developed
into kidney disease.     My back pained me all tho time, and I was very
much  troubled  with  headaches.   My
appetite was fitful; I had a bitter tiste
in my mouth in the mornings; I perspired freely, and my perspiration had
a disagreeable ode.
"I used liniments and plasters, but
they did not do me any good, and
as there were other symptoms that
my kidneys were affected, I decided
to' try Dodd's Kidney Pills. After
using" two boxes, my back was completely cured, and my kidneys have
not troubled me since."
When Mr. Marchbank decided that
his kidneys wero the cause of his
troubles, the rest was easy. Almost any ot his neighbors could tell
him that Dodd's Kidney Pills always
cure diseased kidneys.

Strange and  Turbulent Scene Mark!
Close of Murder Trial at Naples
Naples, Italy. ��� The trial of
Yvoano do VIllcBpreux, the young
Italian comedy actress, who Is said to
have killed her lovo*, Dr. Ettore 'fur-
do, In a fit of jealousy, has come to
an abrupt close with disgraceful
Bccnes of violence between tho king's
procurator general and the lawyers
for the defense.
Although the accused has been In
prison awaiting trial for three years,
the medical experts It ts said, have not
had time to examine her mental condition, while the chief of the forty
witnesses aro now scattered in various
parts of North and South America
and Erythrca. For these reasons
the procurator gonerrl, who corresponds to tho ..raerican district attorney, mo.cd the indefinite postponement of the trial to a future assize. To this the presiding judge
This was the signal for an outbreak
of disorder. Atrocious insults were
hurled from tho well ot the court
against tho chancellor, procurator and
Judges. 'Scoundrels, liarcl' bawled
the procurator general. 'Base villain!'
retorted the chief lawyers for the
defense. The procurator then spra..i
from the bench with uplifted fists.
Court attendantu hurriedly Interposed
themselves between the combatants,
while the presiding judge jump-.t
from the ben h, and tugging vigorously at the procurator's tcga, got
that official out ot danger by a back
exit. The crowd choercd the disorderly lawyers, while armed police
were ordered to clear the court.
Before this amazing scene the judge
had put the prisoner through clever
cross-examination, during which, aft-
or reminding her that before Bhe was
18 she had bi :;i twice charged with
theft and condemned to ten months'
detention in a reformatory, he elicited
that instead of having been born in
Spain, as slit pretended Villespreux
had never been nearer th. t country
than Turin, her native city. She admitted that her real name ls Fornais,
that she had fled from home when
barely 13, and that ' -'fore starting
her stage career sho had been a chambermaid. She ?1 aded she took the
blame of one of the thefts herself, in
��der to shield a criminal lover she
was living with at the time.

Is Health Only
A Game of Chance?
If you are accustomed to look on
health as a gamble you will probably
prove a loser early in the game.
Some may ho". 1 on to health and
life for considerable time and defy
the laws of nature, but there are
many rules of the game which are
conducive to !-ealth and long life.
Take nervous diseases, for example.
There aro many symptoms to warn
one of the approach of nervous exhaustion long before therj is danger of
locomotor ataxia or some dreadful
form of paralysis.
But they seem such little things
that their ilanger signal is not taken
notice of.      Sleeplessness, headache,
indigestion, irrltr.billty, loss of vigor
and energy, discouragement and dls-
pondency, all point to low vitality
and exhausted nervc3.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has betn
w-onderfully uccessful in the cure
of nervous disease of a serious nature, such as prostration, locomotor
ataxia and partial paralysis, but persistent treatment and considerable
patience are necessary.
On thlB account we pre'or to think
of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food as a preventive treatment, which overcomes
theBe symptoms by rebuilding the
feeble, wasted nerve cells and restoring vigor to mind and body.

"I have called to ask you for the hand
of your daughter. I bring with me a
weapon captured by myself just before I left America from an Indian
during a massacre in thu environs ot
Philadelphia. Vou may sue tbo blood

At this point Katrlna took the matter out of her parents' bauds, telling
tbo count thnt, while she felt highly
honored by bis offer, she must decline
It since she had already promised ber
band to one wbo, though he had not
descended from heroic ancestors, hnd

that he bad lost the difference.
A couple of years passed. The Slyder fnmlly wero now city people nnd
rolling in wealth. The children were
being educated. Tbe adage "You enn't
make a silk purse out ot a sow's ear"
lines not always pertain to youtb.
Kiiti'lna, tbe oldest daughter, was a
pretty girl, and It was remarkable wltb
whnt facility she withdrew from the
farmhouse and stepped Into tbe parlor.
Blydcrs, assuming tho original family
name of Sbnyder, took possession of It.
Unfortunately tho filrulture, family
portraits, suits of armor and all that
had long ago been scattered among
tbe members of the Sbnyder family.
A bunt for some of these articles was
Instituted, but without success. However, where there ts a will there ls a

lady of sixty-fire, was bung up In tbe

This does not mean that Mrs. Slyder
wns not ambitions. Tbougb sbe knew

Site, sbe saw an opportunity for ber
American fortunes wns young Karl
Ilarsinger. Learning of tbe Slyders,
he procured an Introduction to Father
Slyder, nnd it did not take blm long
to discover tbat If be would wed bis
daughter be must hare a family tree
whose brancbes grew blgh toward tbe
heavens.   Mrs. Slyder had discovered
daughter to shine there.   The leap the   that no one In Berlin bad been lmpos-
liuiilly bad made from poverty to of-
luciiee caused  her to condemn any

tree. At any rate, the emperor did not
send for Slyder to welcome him back
to tbe home of his distinguished ancestor, tbe last Baron Sbnyder, who
bad been stabbed In the bowels by a
traveler whom he wns attempting to
rob. Still It ls quite likely thnt had
tbe emperor been convinced of tbe Inheritance he would bave done so.
Unfortunately for Mrs. Slyder's, or
Baroness Shnyder's, plan, she permitted Katrlna to go off wltb a party of
Americans on a tour In Italy. The
girl, who was to be reserved for a no- *
bleman, fell In lore with one of the
party, Nathaniel Walker, and her love
was returned. Knowing her mother's
plans for ber, sbe resolved to keep her
love affair a secret and enjoined tbe
same on ber lover.

Ths Kind They Plant on Log Cabins
In Rural Norway.
Tbe log cabins of rural Norway are
built A heavy pine logs hewed square
aud of equal size from end to end.
They are usually stained or oiled, and
tbelr rich yellowish or brownish color
ls In harmony wltb almost any surroundings. Tbelr roofs are sodded, a
circumstance that adds plcturesqueoess
to the general effect
"I bave come across roofs that were
a riot of wild pnnsles," says a writer
In tbe Craftsman, "and 1 have seen
wonderful roofs where wild roses bung
over the eaves or a daisy roof, tbe effect of whose white, stnrlike flowers,
topping tbo dark brown structure, was
exquisitely picturesque.
"Some roofs produce only pasture
grass, and the story runs In Norwegian
folklore that a lazy man led bis cow on
the roof-tbe cabin wns built against a
hill-Instead of taking her to tbe pasture. 1 bave no doubt that the story ls
true, for 1 have often seen a couple ot
white kidlets gamboling on tbe soft
green housetops while tbe mother goat,
grave and ruminative, was tethered to
the chimney.
"Sod roofs are just as water tight as
others If tbey are laid correctly. A
board roof Is first laid upon a bouse,
and tbls Is covered with a layer ot
blrcb bark. On top of tbls comes a
layer of sod wltb tbe grass turned down
to tbe roof, then a rather thick layer
of earth and finally another layer of
sod, this time with the grass op. The
result is a most exquisite and poetical
covering for the bouse."
Work of the Doctor.
Dr. Stephen Paget bas some interesting observations on tbe doctor aud his'
rewards In bis "Confcsslo Medici." "If
medicine Is a trade wby should tbe
doctor so often work for nothing?" be
asks. "If it ls an art what works of
art does be produce? None, says
Claude Bernard. 'Le medecin artiste
ne cree rien.' Bnt surely be ls wrong.
The doctor, so far from creating nothing, crentes life, for be saves or prolongs life, creates more life. If Miss
X. is seventy, and tbe doctor by an operation enables her to live till sbe ls
seventy-five be has not prolonged the
seventy years, for thoy were ended before be came, but he has created five

Brutal  Sport  Is  Making Its Appear*
ance  In Great Britain.
Cockflghting in London I When this
announcement was made the   other
morning in one of the metropolitan
papers people who read it rubbed
tlieir eyes in amazement, wondering
whether they hnd suddenly been
transported Irom the twentieth to tlie
eighteenth century, when cockfight-
iltg in the metropolis was the sport nf
kings and dukes and lords, ami was
as common as horseracing or football
is to-day. Even the police themselves
were surprised to be told that, cock-
lighting liad taken place by the aid
ol lantern light on a Sunday morning on Hackney Marshes.
It is Common knowledge, nf course,
that cookflghtlng has been Illegal
pinee the middle ot the nineteenth
century, but tho faet is that it is
still enthusiastically carried on in
many parts ot England, as well as in
From time to time reports appear
in Ilie newspapers ol secret cockfights, the orgnni/.ors of which usually
manage to evade the police. In a ease
at Kidderminster, recently, one of the
defendants mentioned that he had indulged in tho "sport" with dukes,
' earls, and solicitors, while at a cock-
i fight which took place on the banks
of the Manchester Ship Canal, some
few miles from Manchester, it was
stated that not a few of the patrons
assembled in motor cars, and that
large sums ol money changed hands
over the affair. In Cumberland ami
other northern districts there are still
many adherents of this brutal pastime. Not long ago a match between
old English game birds from the P.ol-
ton and Blennerhasset districts was
decided at a quiet rendezvous three
miles from Wigton. "Owing to the
vigilance of the police." we are told,
"the affair was carried through with
great secrecy, and the audience was
in u way select." The light was. however, brought to a conclusion without
the guardians of the law discovering
that such a thing was taking place.
This is how the fight was described
hy the sporting reporter who attended
it: "The Bnlton cock, which was the
heavier bird, was favorite, and" it justified the confidence of its supporters,
for the first round decided the match.
Tho feathered contestants, after being
duly clipped and heeled, were pitted,
and on their getting together the Bolton cock, with a powerful stroke of its
steel spur, rendered its antagonist
hors de combat. The Bolton cock was
therefore declared the winner, and its
owner received the stake."
A few weeks later another fight took
place between birds from the same
districts, and on that occasion it was
reported that the Blennerhasset
sportsmen had their revenge. Their
bird, after a more prolonged struggle
than was witnessed in the first encounter, rendered Its opponent helpless, thus winning the stakes for its
What happens from time to time in
England, in defiance of the law, also
/takes place in Ireland. Not long ago
about 2.000 cockfighters from the counties of Cavan, Armagh, Monaghan,
and Tyrone, assembled near Smith-
borough, in the county of Monaghan,
to witness a "main of battles," which
had been arranged by the followers
of the game for a considerable amount
of money in bets. Although it was
assize day in Monaghan Town, which
seems to have taken advantage of by
the wily "sports," owing to the absence of many of the police on duty
there, yet several members of the
iorce who had become aware of the
proposed cockfight followed the
"sportsmen," who had congregated bv
trains, bicycles, jaunting cars, and atl
sorts of conveyances. I

Queen-Mother's Gift.
Following her annual custom, Queen
Alexandra on St. Patrick's Pay presented the Irish Guards, now stationed at Wellington Barracks, with sprigs
of shamrock in honor of St. Patrick's
The shamrock was sent to Earl Roberts, as honorary colonel. In his
unavoidable absence at the parade
Col. FitzClarenee distributed the
sprigs to the lieutenant-colonel, and
he, in turn, made sub-distribution to
the various officers, company officers
being responsible for seeing that each
of their men secured a spray.
Later, the Guards marched to the
Roman Catholic church of SS. Peter
and Edward. Palace street, to attend
a special celebration of Mass, each
man wearing in the second buttonhole of his great-coat the bunch of

marvelous feature of hawking is the
manner in which the hawks themselves, naturally the wildest and wariest of the feathered tribe, have been
