resented Uio arrival of visitors,
Still, business Is business nnd word
had oomo up that there was a gentleman downstairs waiting to ,soe him on

son swallowed his resentment and
bade the messenger bring up tho gentleman.
The gentleman entered���a cheeky-
looking Utile whipper-snapper, four
feet nothing in bis socks.
Mr. Grlgson glanced al him angrily.

She told lilm as g"inly as she could

It would be risking his future as well
as her own to consent to a union
where she was sure no affinity existed. It was a touching speech, and
sho threw so much heart Into It that
she did not observe that he was talcing

Tho vicar told an amusing story of
a good-living lass who was asked by
a chap sitting next In her in a railway carriage whether she believed
every word In the Bible. Sho said
she did.

PudiHelon aud Mudmore were met
to decide supremacy at cricket, and
the newly-elected captain of tbe Pud-
dletotiians. to signalize tho honor done
to him, was defraying the cost of a
hot luncheon. This repast was to be
taken at lhe clos-1 of tbe first innings
and things looked promising for an
early meal until the last two Mud-
mere batsmen took It Into their heads
lo offer a sturdy resistance to the
home bowling. This fact seemed
particularly disquieting to a a'.out man
In a white aprcn, who stood at the
entrance to tho pavilion signalling to
the home umpire.

on tbe head.

The other morning a warder entered
a cell and found the prisoner had not
llnlsbod his allowance of breed, nnd
was trying lo hide It. The warder
immediately threw it out of the window, remarking that It would do for
the birds to pick, and gave the prisoner his supply of oakum to do. He returned some time later to collect tho
prisoner's work, but found him asleep,
and upon remonstrating with him, and
inquiring where his work was, received the following reply;
Well, guv'nor, yer see you threw
my breakfast ont of the window, and

At a local cricket match In a village
not far from Durham the cap ��11 of
the home side, in playing a fast ball
from the crack bowler of the visiting

The Slory ol lhe Two Unfortunate Princes
Tho romance-tragedy of Engllsli history Is Ilie career of the Duke ot Gloucester, afterward King Richard III.
Within it nre many stories, and Richard Is both the hero und tbo villain
of every one of tbem.
When King Edward IV., Richard's
brolher, died, Edward's oldest son, who
became king, wus a Ilttlo boy. Richard, whose courage wus equaled only
by bis ambition and who possibly nt
lhe time designed to muke himself
king, al once dllsbed ut the head of ll
troop of his adherents lo where young
Edward wus and captured blm,
1 The uo.u linportUUt scene In Ihe tragedy Is lhe little king riding on horseback from tile city of London to Westminster abbey, bis Uncle Rlcburd riding beside him, regarding Ills nephew-
���OTOI'OlgU with every pretense of reverence und affection, it is probable
thai Richard wus even then plotting to
���upplunt lhe child; thai this apparent
devotion wus to win ihe confidence of
the people with u view to furthering
bis opportunity, but whether lhe arch
tleiul then contemplated murdering big
brother's son bus not been proved.
The little king's mot ber us soon as
sho saw reason lo fear her brother-in-
law took refuge with her other children In lhe sanctuary of Westminster,
for in those days no person, king or
commoner, might drug oue from the
lanctunry without Incurring the anathemas of the church. Hut Ihe boy remained with his uncle, wbo ulso secured possession of Ills younger brother, the Duke of Clarence.
The Tower of London, which for
more tban two centuries has been only
a fortress and Is now mostly an object of curiosity for tourists, wns then
also n puluce and n prison. Richard
Bxed tbe residence of his nephews
there, assuming to reign in the minor
king's name. England nt the time
needed a strong governing hand. Richard succeeded in convincing certulu
persons of inlliienee that bo hnd better
be king. Others be threatened; others
be put out of bis way by beheading
tbem. Many of the commoners were
with him.
When ull was ripe he seized the scepter. From tbo first the little princes
���were virtually prisoners in tlie Tower,
though they were treated with all the
reverence due a king and a prince of
tbe blood. But tbey never came out
from the gloomy walls. The people
never saw tbem. Young ns they were,
they were old enough to realize that
tbey were In the bands of oue lu whose
way they 6tood nnd their lives were
Id danger.
Richard had a son of his own whom
be Idolized and whom he desired
should succeed him on the throne of
England. Probably this feature of the
case turned bis mind to the murder of
tbe two princes, his nephews, for so
long ns tbey lived their title to the
erown would stand before that of Richard's sou. At any rate, there came A
time wheu Richard determined to murder bis nephews and looked about for
���ome one to do the deed.
lie sent an order to the lieutenant of
the Tower to have tbe princes put to
death. The ollleer refused to obey It
Jn this he braved the king, then nn all
powerful sovereign, but to force a man
to commit the murder would have at
once made the murder known, and this
did not suit Richard's purpose. When
he received word that the lieutenant
would not do his bidding he lamented
aloud that he had no one ou whom he
could rely lu his extremity. A page
overheard what he said and, knowing
bis meaning, told him that be know a
man who would serve him ns he wish-
ed to be served. Tho man wns called,
accepted the commission and left for I
the Tower.
For four centuries a pitying world
bns been wondering us to the death
sceno of the poor little king nnd bis I
brother. All that Is known ls that to
keep tbelr cries from being heard they
were smothered In their bedclothes.
tv"hou all wus over their bodies were j
taken down to tbo foot of the stairs
below the room In which tho deed
was done and there burled. Later,
when the murder became known, It
wns given out that they bad been burled In Westminster abbey. Rut this
story was disproved many years Inter,
in the reign of Charles it., when on '
malting changes lu tho Tower tho skeletons of two children were found nt the
foot of thn stnlrcnse, ns recorded by
one of the murderers at lhe time of tbe
Tho taking off of tho princes, being
known only to n few, wns kept for a

lefnge, would drug them from the
sanctuary and kill them also. As tlmi
passed und nothing was heard by ths
people of Hie princes, who wero supposed lo be living In the royal apurt-
inents of (he Tower, they began to wonder. Then the dreadful news spread
from mouth to month, und u great horror fell upon nil England.

The Duke of Buckingham was captured
by Richard nnd Immediately beheaded.
A second binding wns made by Richmond, uud Richard again sprung forth
to his work.
On the king's way to the battle which
wus to decide his fate he slept in an
inn culled (he Blue Boar. Richard
took with him his own bed und hud It

In a house not far away lived a boy,
under the cure of u man who, though
he gave him every comfort and educated him, told lilm that he was not

Tbe night before the battle of Bos-

The king awoke In the morning
showing by his appearance that he was
under a terrific dread. Ills fnce was
livid, and he complained of having had
frightful dreams. The crime of murder being on his conscience, knowing
that he could not rely upon somo of
the nobles who hnd brought tbelr retainers to serve him, It Is likely that he
feared defeat uud punishment. I
And whnt saw young Richard Tlnn-
tagenet from the hilltop? When the
battle was well on, one of tbe nobles
who formed n part of Richard's army
swung his troops to the other side.

But tho struggle wns too unequal. A
soldier bore down tho king and dispatched him.
History gives no definite account of
fhe subsequent llfo of the boy who
from tho hilltop saw the dashing ot

a man who was n bricklayer nnd who
at noontimes, when his fellow, workmen were resting, would bo found to

curious to know what he read, looked

Tattooed Royalty.
Quito a number of members of European royal families bear tattooed designs. Tho Grand Duke Alexis of itus-
sin, for instance, is most elaborately
tattooed; likewise his cousin. Iho Duke
of Snxe-Cobiirg nnd (lolba. The queen
of Greece and tbe king of Sweden are
ulso tattooed. On bis arm Prince.

A Very Poor Shot and a Perfectly Good

An Incident that occurred In the experience ot nn English ollleer Is told by
tho London Spocntor to illustrate the

The officer, accompanied by a guard
of Turkish soldiers, went to the edge

New Wrinkles About Wrinkles.
It is a great mistake to suppose that
ill  wrinkles  Indicate  old  age.    Some
wrinkles and lines nre Indications of
temperament and character and result
from n muscular contraction of the
cheek or brow. These lines become
permanently engraved in (be fucc aa
the underlying tissue shrinks from ibe
ttefldy contraction und consequent hick
of circulation.
Wrinkles aro oflen caused by ill
health, mental strain und nervousness,
uud generally (hose wrinkles can be
Induced to leave by careful treatment
and by building up the health uud
nervous system.
Whatever tends to promote (he general health, to Increase (he deposit of
fnt In the skin tissues of the face, will
help to obliterate these telltale Hues
and restore firmness and smoothness.
Very often the skin of the face has
become extremely dry, and lines form
themselves very quickly and for no apparent reason.
While it Is absolutely necessary to
keep the face perfectly clean, soma
skins aro sn delicate nnd tender that
tho use of a bland sonp is harmful, nnd
such skins need an entirely different
treatment from the stronger, courser
skins. It ls nlso necessary to give the
skin n cbnnce lo recuperate from the
drying und parching effect of lhe sleaui
heated air of modern houses. Skin
thnt is parched and Inelastic will
wrinkle much sooner than soft, pliable
skin. Use plenty of good skin food;
don't skimp it; it renlly does not pay.
then wipe It off with a soft towel or
piece of cheesecloth.
Quite a Difference.
When the Baroness BurdeltCotitts
was Miss Contts, the great heiress, It
wns rumored that she was to wed tho
Duke of Wellington. A friend asked
the duke If the rumor was true, and
tbe duke answered Irritably:
"I snld Miss Angela Coutts deserved
to bo n duchess. I never snld that I
would make her one,"
This observation of the duke's wns
repeated to the heiress. She flushed
nn hearing It, smiled a little bitterly
snd remarked:
"The duke should have said 'could,'
not 'would.'"

How to Massage.
Massage the face with a good skin
food for twenty minutes nt night after
the face has been washed with tepid
wnter nnd tho sonp paste. Massage,
besides stimulating tho skin by Increasing the circulation, smooths tbe surface. Think of tho skin as a piece uf
wrinkled soft paper. To make the paper smooth so lhat it can be used again
one puts nnd smooths out the creases.
The sumo treatment should be applied
to tho face, the main difference beimi
thnt tbo flesh requires n firmer stroke
thnn would be given to a more periaii-
able material.
The following Is an excellent skin
food for tbls purpose:
White wax, ono ouuee; spermaceti.
one ounce; lnnolin, two ounces; cocoa-
nut oil, two ounces; sweet almond oil,
four ounces; rosewnter, two ounces.
Melt tbe first fire ingredients In a
double boiler, tnke from the fire and
while beating slowly add the rosewa
ter. When quite cold put into Jars.
This food will not cause a growth ot
hair on the face.
A good lotion for use ia treating
prcmnture wrinkles Is made from tlie
following formula: Alum, sixty grains:
almond milk (thick), one and one-half
ounces; rosewnter, 6lx ounces. DLs-
solve tbe alum In tbe rosewnter; tben
pour gently Into tho almond milk,
shaking constantly.

How to Remove Dandruff.
An excellent dandruff remover Is
made up of alcohol, rcsorcin, clnconci,
cuuthnrldes nnd quinine.
A shnmpooer who takes nn Interest
lu her work pays ns much atteiilion to
tho removal of the dandruff as she does
to cleansing the hair. Tbe dandruff
should be loosened from the scalp by
massaging the scalp with the finger
tips or by tho use of a small brush like
a nailbrush, Tbe hair should be parted nt Intervals so that tha scaly substances enn be easily reached.
Dandruff on a neglected scalp cakes.
When this happens there ls nn Irresistible Impulse to remove It Do not do
this with the linger nulls, as It often

Not only does dandruff retard the
growth of the hair, but It certainly offends tho eye of every one wbo has nny
conception of uentuess to Eee the cloth-

At the present tirnewhen so much
is being written about the high
cost of living, the tightness of the
money market and other kindred
subjects which so closely affect the
pocket of the aveiage citizen, anything that tends directly or indirectly to solve these important
questions is naturally deserving of
the closest investigation.
One of the most beneficial schemes in this connection is that for
obtaining money for legitimate industrial enterprises, for improvements to farms or for home building, at reasonable rates of interest
and on long terms, and the average
workiugtnan who can take advantage of facilities of this kind for
building and owning his own home
and pntting the profits of the landlord into his own pocket has gone
far towards a solution of the piob-
lem of living.
There are many incorporated
companies and societies who make
loans for building and other purposes, and which have undoubtedly
been the means of a large proportion of the working population of
towns and cities owning their own
homes instead of paying a large
part of their earnings to landlords
and having nothing to show for
their payments but rent receipts.
One of the best propositions of
this kind that has come to our attention is that offered by the British North American Home Investment Company of Vancouve r The
company in the fust place is sound
and reliable, their directorate and
managers being composed of shrewd
business men of unquestioned integrity and tlieir plan of making
loans on the contract system at a
low rate of interest and repayable
over a term of ten years or less, is
one that should be carefully looked
into by every one whether of small
or large means u ho contemplates
making an investment or building
a home.
Mr. E. A. West, the Vice-
President of this company is in
Courtenay at the present time for
the purpose of looking over some
property here on which they contemplate tusking loans in the near
future, also property on which they
have already made loans to one of
our citizens who is now erecting
thereon some very attractive houses.

Knights oi Pythias
The Knights of Pithias held a
meeting in the opera house Gourte
uap on Monday evening last for the
purpose of instituting a new lodge
in this town, Dr. Millard occupied
the chair and gave a short address
on the aims and objects of the order. T. D. Hind gave a lecture on
" Our ancient and noble aucestry"
commencing with the Knights of
Pythias, organized 1864, and extending back into the prehistoric
age. Showing that the Knights of
Pythias are the successors of the
Pythian Society, the Pythian Society was the successor of the Pyth.
agorean Society, of which Damon
and Pythias were members, and the
Pythagorean Society was the successor of the ancient Egyptian Society. The Pythagorian Society
was introduced into Greece in the
year 540 B. C. by Pythagoras the
great philosopher, who discovered
the world was round. This society
aimed to select only the best type
of manhood as candidates for membership, who were in some instances
required to study for years before
being admitted to full membership.
It was the leading educational society of the times. It not only required that its memebers should develop a high standard of morals
and full  rounded   character
were schooled in arts and sciences.
This society stood for progress
along all lines, for the highest development of man', ii;d and for the
best form of government, It was
the constant effort of Damon and
Pythias to maintain a free government along the lines of our own
government; which caused the
difference betweeu them and tlie
tyrant King Dyonecotis, who
caused the King to sentence Damon
to death, and given but four hours
to live, Pythias became a hostage
for Damon, that he might go and
see his wife and child before he
dies. The headsman's axe was
raised when Damon appeared aud
saved his friend.
The meeting was enjoyed by all
present, and a number signed the
list of membership.

partially opened door, Aa soon as
the latter was shut too again and fastened, Jemmy, no longer with a pipe

not. apparently la a hurry to enter .the
demesne of the ancient monastery;
for, after leaving the public pathway,
ho struck into a small wood which
bounded the moat on the further side,
and from which views, both of the
house and the bridge, could be commanded In the clear light of the moon.

great speed. Jemmy could have arrived at hie destination with less likelihood of being observed by a moro
circuitous route; but lie risked something so as not to miss the beginning
of the conference about to take place.
One window of the dining-room was
in deep shadow, caused by one of the
main buttresses of the house. He
climbed up to It, removed a diamond-
shaped pane of glass, which ho had
purposely left insecurely fastener from
a previous expedition, shot back a bolt
and lifted the catch, and noiselessly
swung himself into the room.
Jordan had hardly landed, after securing the window, before the door
opened on the opposite side, and Muller entered with a light. Fortunately
the light served to show Muller to
Jordan, not Jordan to Muller. Thle
security was momentary only, as Jemmy well knew. Ily a wriggling motion, which could only have attained
the perfection of present performance
after years of practice, he got across
the floor to a long hor&ehatr sofa
which left sufficient space at the back
to admit a man of not too bulky proportions. The transit was performed
without a rustle. Arrived at his destination, Jordan comfortably ensconced himself in tlie recess the sofa afforded him. Muller euspectod nothing of course, but with habitual caution held the light above his head and
glanced round the room���a very fine
apartment with a handsome Turkey
carpet on the floor. Nothing attracted his notloe, and he at once went to
the sideboard, taking from It a spirit-
decanter and three or four loug glasses, which he placed on u silver tray.
He then returned to the smoking-room,
carrying the tray In his bands,
As 60on as Muller's back was turned
Jordan crossed the dining-room lo the
aperture which connected the two
rooms. Ou lhe dining-room sldo the
space was covered wllh a small curtain, on tho Bmoklng-room sldo hy a
glr.sa let Into a frame, which could be
moved Into tho wall when the aperture was roqulrcd for the purpose for
which it was originally constructed.
This hole was a foot broad and eighteen Inches In height, Jordan held the
curtutn aside and peeped through tho
glass Into tho room beyond,
The three men were seated round
the five, and wero looking up nt Muller, who was Just entering the
door. They wero all Germans, and
their faces and drceo suggested the
brine. None of tho threo was equal
In social rank to his host. Jordan
knew one of them hy sight, He had
seen him in London, where ho waa
ccncrally regarded as a political agont
of the baser sort, not too r.crupulous
about the agencies he might employ to
accomplish his ends even to the
bounds of abtolute criminality, The
other two wero grangers to Jordan;
but previous knowledge of Muller's Intentions, coupled with an Intimate acquaintance with the icainy eido of
character, led him to frol that they
Wei's a desperate set of ruffians to
Ideal wii'.i,    Jordan had borrowed Mur-
 ' | gatroyd's dainty Ilttlo rovolver bofora
Halving tha Fallen, mi lighter to carry
and handle than a clumsier weapon of
the same kind he possessed himself.
Ile new felt that It lay handy in his
breast pocket in case of a scrimmage.
Muller had taken his place in tbo
arm-chair In which he hud eat when
talking with Murgatroyd. By his
side was a small table, upon which he
had placed the silver tray with ihe i
whisky-decanter and glasses upon it. i
By the side of the tray were the materials for grog, and on the fire was a
large pannikin filled with water. It
was a conspiracy tempered by comfort. By the side of the man Jordan
had known In London as Metzler, was
another small table, upon which a
packet of papers was placed, tied up
with a thick string. An oilskin
wrapper which had evidently been
round them lay by Messier'a elbow,
which rested on a corner of tho table.
All the party were taken up with
tho brew that was going on at tho
fire. The solitary lamp stood on the
mantelpiece, shedding plenty of light
on the group of men, but none on the
rest of the room. Jordan saw that It
was his opportunity, He had no intention of remaining where ho was;
for he was perfectly certain that with
tho glass between him and the purlle
carrep, he would hear next to nothing.
They were not at all likely to speak
loudly, as Murgatroyd aud Muller had
done on the last oocasdon when he
had occupied the same vantage
ground. it was necessary he should
be in the room.
Jordan went out of the dining-room
and listened nt tho door of tho smoking-room. Then cautiously opened
it with one hand, holdiug his revolver In the other. Ho glanced In,
All four wero watching tho pannikin
with tho selfish Interest of keen an-
ticipatloii. Jordan glided in. lie
had fixed beforehand on his place of
concealment, viz., under tho card-
table Itself, which, when not In use,
stood against the wall furthest from
Iho fire near the door. There wan
no sofa in tho smoking-room, aud tho
only chairs capable of affording any
concealment were In us-o. There was
of course the tlsk that the oard-table
might be wanted for Its original purpose, but Jonimy argued that the lateness of the hour, and the probable
wish of the new-corners to return to
the vessel aud oteam out of harbor as
soon as possible, precluded the probability that cards would be Introduced
when the busln&zo which had brought
the party together was transacted.
In any case It was necessary to run
the risk, or the information he had
come to obtain v/ould be loBt. 8o he
dived under the card-table and awaited the denouement, wllh the toy revolver held looseJy In his hand.
Some explanation is now due of the
extremely hazardous course Jordan
waa taking, and the reasons which
led to its adoption.
Jemmy had told Murgatroyd just as
much of the story of hl3 former visit
to Highdene, as he had thought expedient; not that he had any sinister
Intention In concealing what ho had
not disclosed, but simply because he
did not care to expose hie cards before
(ho game was played out.

Then, I say, Charlie, he asked a
friend, do saunter carleessly by and

Forthwith Charlie set out to do a

When the Stomach is Wrong the
Whole Body Suffers-How to
Keep It Healthy
Indigestion Is one of the most distressing maladies afflicting mankind.
The stomach is unable to perform the
work nature calls upon It to do, and
the result, la extreme pain after eating,;
nausea, heartburn, painful fluttering
of the heart, sick headache, and often
a loathing of food, even though tho
sufferer ls half starved. People with
poor digestion are prone to try all
���sorts of Experiments to aid tha process of digestion, and there ts only
ono way In which the trouble can be
actually cured, and that Is through
the blood. That ls why tho tonic
treatment with Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills cures oven the most obstlualo
cases of indigestion. They niako the
rich, red blood that strengthens.the
stomach and Its nerves, thus enabling
It to do its work. The process is
simple, but the result means a good
appetite, and Increased health and
pleasure in life. Mr. It. Lustier, of
Sorel, Que., offers ample proof of
this. He says: "For several years
I was a sufferer from Indigestion, anil
the torture I suffered after meals
was often almost unendurable. Often
I would go without a. meal rather
than undergo the suffering that followed. Accompanying the trouble
I had headaches, dizziness, and often
a feeling of nausea. All the time I
was taking one medicine afler another in tho hopo of getting relief,
but. without avail. Finally I read of
the case of a similar sufferer cured
through the uso of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and I decided to try them.
I took tho Pills steadily for about six
weeks with result that I was fully
cured, and could eat anything I cared
for. 1 may add that I havo not. siuca
had any return of the trouble."
If you aro suffering from Indigestion
do not waste time experimenting, but
begin to euro yourself today with Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, which go right
to the root ot the trouble through the
blood. Sold by all medicine dealers
or by mail at 50 cents a box or six
boxes for $2.50, from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
