Tho confusion and pouBternatlon,
the agony ol all little Barbara's
friends, can hardly 1)6 described,
They could not do enough for her, But
until her father was burled she sat
very still, hardly speaking, not mill1-
inurlng in the least, looking sadly,
sweetly patient, but, as those   who
loved her best said, juBl as though
she were miles t,.uil miles away in another world..    -s ���
That most charming Rectory in
North Devonshire, where the old Roe-
tor had lived his life und passed out
of It so suddenly, was now to be given
to another. Meanwhile, the lawyers,
Messrs. Parlies and Hunnlngley, came
down from London to be present at
lhe funeral. The Rector's cousin and
greatest friend. Dean Chance, of Ex-
ham Cathedral, came over and immediately begged of Barbara to make
her home With him. But Ihls she refused, for Sunnlngley who was also
her cousin, told her that her father
had insured his life for two thousand
pounds. This, with a little money���
about thirty pounds per annum���
which she inherited from her mother,
would give her enough to live on,
at least for the present. She thought
of Ralph, and her heart heat. Oh, how
far away he was! There were certain
addresses which might In tlio course
of time llnd bim, but he was not. with
her now, when sbe wanted him so
terribly. There was a curious obstinacy about this girl���perhaps it wns
one of ber charms, perhaps it, was
the secret of her undoubted strength
of character���but be that as it may,
sbe refused nil offers of outside help.
She would live on her little income
and take a tiny house near the beloved Rectory, and near all her
friends. Joan would come with her
and take care of her. Oh, yes, they
could manage. The lawyers said they
could safely secure her five per
cent, for her money! they said nothing with regard to legacy duty���what,
did Barbara know of such things?
.itnnlllgley and Oean Chance would
between them ;,ay the legacy duty,
antl thus she could get ,. hundred a
year on the two thousand pounds.

Perhaps,    all    things    considered,
ere was no girt in all tlie world
more loved than Barbara Chance,
This was, as her friends expressed it
becaues of her "happy face." And
yet now, on this terrible fourth of December, she was not happy, nhe was
overpowered by fear, and she had
to hide this fear at. any risk from
her dear old servant, Joan. During
the Rector's life-time Barbara had
wanted for no ordinary comforts. The
living of Worthlngton-on-Die-Hill was
a good one; there were plenty of ser-
viints, and although the Rector gave
largely to the poor, liis own house
was well appoiiilcd and well kept. On
this occasion she arrived home between five and six o'clock; old .loan
was waiting for her, for a great

sparingly In the great dining room,

will be so clever of us to contrive
and make two ends meet. My friends
think it "awful that 1 should be poor,
Joan, but. do you know, 1 am downright glad?"
"Then heaven forgive ye, my blessed lamb," said the old servant. "Ye
know not what poverty means, my
darling. It's grind, and grind, and
grind, that's what poverty is. It. lakes
the very life out of ye. Miss Barbara,
that's  what,  poverty  does."

Huge of obstinacy in her character
made it useless. Accordingly, about
an hour and a half later, the servants might have been heard going up
to their respective rooms. Joan was
the last to go. The old Kector.y was
now shut up for tlie night. When
tliij happened, Barbara rose from
where she was seated in ber father's armchair. A lire was laid in the

strange, strange words which came
from tlie blue lips ln their death
"You will llnd it. You will obey.

she to obey?
She had a certain premonition
which told lier that the scene of ber
search must be in tlie room where
she was now seatetl. Whatever of
secrets the Rector bad, Barbara felt
assured that they were concealed iu
tlie library. How could she have let
a whole month pass without obeying
those words of agony? Well, at least
she would delay not a moment longer now.

FOUND     COMPLETE       CURE       IN
Mrs.   Gray,   Who   Was   Nervom   and
Run   Down   for   Two   Years,   Tells
How She  Found  New  Health.

I.Special'.���Mrs.  II. Gray. tMo popular
postmistress  hero,    is    telling    her
friends of tho great benefit she hiis
received  from  Inking   Hold's  Kidney
"For about two years,' Mrs. Gray
says, "1 wiih all run down. My sleep
was' broken and llttfreshlhg, and I
suffered from shortness ol breath imd
heart Unite rings, i tinally decided that
the Kidneys were lhe cause of my
trouble and decided lo try Dodd's Kidney PUIS. 1 took four boxes in all,
anil I feel unite strong and like myself again. 1 certainly think Dodd's
Kidney Pills are a good modlclne."
The experience of the postmistress
is similar to that of thousands of
other Canadian women. Tbey were
weak, run down, nervous and In bad
health generally. They took Dodd's
Kidney Pills and are strong and well
The reason is that when the Kidneys get out of order they fail to
strain the impurities out of tbe blood
and general lassitude and weakness
ensues. The natural cure is to cure
tlip Kidneys. The experience of thousands of others tells you that Dodd's
Kidney Pills cure the Kidneys.
Terrible Scalding  Accident
Por taking the pain out of a bum
or scald thero Is nothing equal lo
Zam-Buk. Mrs. lSugeno Demers, of
Pembroke. Out., who was the victim
of a painful scalding accident, proved
Ihls. She says: "I was carrying a
boiler of steaming water from the
stove to the1 wash-tub, when suddenly
my strength failed. As the boiler
was falling in spile of my efforts, I
beard my babies cry, and lo avoid
scalding theni 1 gave Ihe vessel a
quick turn. The effect ot this was
that every drop of the boiling waler
poured over my feet and limbs,
scalding  mo  from  my  waist down.
"As soon as I saw the children
had escaped, I told my OldeBl boy lo
bring the Zam-Buk I which we always
keep iu Ibe house 1. I applied /am-

eased. 1 continued using Zam-Buk

Those who love to study human nature often derive as much pleasure
from watching the people who visit
picture galleries as they receive from
the pictures themselves.
Two young women were looking at
a picture in one of the art galleries
entitled "His Only Pair." The artist
has depleted a poor boy sitting up in
bed while his hard working mother
mends his on".y pair oi trousers. The
boy, although obliged lo remain in
bed while the repairs are in progress,
is contentedly eating an orange.
One ot the visitors evinced a special interest in the picture and gazed
long and earnestly at it. Then, turning to her companion, remarked:

If you find yourself nervous and irritable, over*

continual movement or tapping of the fingers,
twitching of the muscles, sudden startings and
jerkings of the limbs during sleep; if you have
nervous headaches or dyspepsia, are unable

The post office matter must come
to a head at once. As pointed out
in these columns on various occasions, the 5000 appropriation was
made on condition that the people
of this place furnish a suitable site
acceptable to the government's
agent. This was done, and the
size and location of the site given
so pleased the department that Mr.
Clements had no difficulty in getting:
a much larger appropriation and a

are now being prepared, and the
work of constructing the building
will be ready to go on very shortly.

They got away to a beautiful start
and were neck and neck for nearly
the whole distance, Coverts finally
winning out by a length.
The second event was a trotting

was won by Hogg. In the second
heat Ole Olson put in his charger

Hot Baths
By causing the blood to circulate
more freely and dilating the vessels
on the surface, hot baths relieve
the congestion in the muscles and
Internal organs. In this way they
promote the elimination of tha
waste products which cause tiredness, fatigue, and most of the other
aches a id pains from which humanity is liable to sufftr. It is not
necessary to wait untill bedtime
before having a hot bath. Its
most beneficial effects can be obtained by taking it in the evening
on returning from work. It is
then that it is most refreshing and
if made use of at this time of day
will enable many a man who has
become fagged out to spend an
enjoyable evening when otherwise
he would be sitting down too tired
to read or take part in any amusement.

An Ad. in The Review Pays
A most enjoyable day was spent
at Grantham last Friday( when a
large number of the residents of
that district gathered at the sehool
for the closing exercises and to say
(good by_) to the old building
which has done such good service
as school house since the year i88t.
We noticed one lady In the gathering, now a proud grandmother of
three, who was one of the pupils to
answer the first roll call at Grantham school. The closing exercises
also a program of twenty-two pieces
went oo to the satisfaction of all
pres.'lit, the children's spelling contest being much appreciated, The
Rolls of Honour were won by Elsie
Herkinstock, for deportment; John
Wingar, for proficiency, and Howard Janes for regularity, Mr. F.
H. Janes, after presenting the rolls
of honor, led with three hearty
cheers for the teacher (. Miss Gibson)
and the old school. This part of
the days work being closed by singing the National Anthem, led by
Victor Berkeostock with his mouth
organ. At the request of a number of the parents of the pupils,
Miss Gibson will remain another
year at Grantham The following
list of sports which was ably conducted by Mr. ]. Blackburn assisted
by a committee was keenly contested by the children, and watched

the end of the rope as anchor mail
for the single men, good cash prizes
were given to the children. An
unlimited supply of refreshments
were kindly supplied by the ladies
at frequent intervals, on the whole
everybody seemed to think that
the last school closing of the old
school had been the best in its
and sports wete indulged in till
half an hour after midnight, when,
after wishing Miss Spencer all
happiness and prosperity, the guests
dissembled, each happy in that he
or she had added one more happy
day to his or her life, but especially
to him with the dark curly locks
who had been specially singled out
to receive the imprint of the lady
of honor's lips upon his manly
cheek as a result of forfeits which
demanded of her to smile on the
wittiest, bow to the prettiest and
kiss the one she loved Jthe best.
God bless them both.

Amongst the interesting events
at Headuarters during the past
week, not the least exciting was
the gathering of a patty of bachelors (boys and girls) to Miss
Spencer's tent in view of that
lady's pending departure for England.
Miss Spencer has been teacher at
the Headquarters school since the
beginning of the year, during which
time she has endeared herself to the
children, the children's parents and
without exception to thote big boys
who have neither chick nor child
to bless thein in their loneliness in
the woods. Assiduous in her
duties as a teacher she has taken
great pains iu incalculating those
precepts and examples so necessary
with the rising generation, upon
the minds of her pupils.
First aud foremost in all sports
whether indoors or outdoors, from
the innocent game of forfeits, with
its attendant pleasant punishments
to the equally enjoyable if more
arduouspastitne of excursions to the
wilds of Wolfe Lake for picnics,
fishing and paddling, she has been
a leader, and it was only fitting
that her early departure should be
heralded by such a gathering as
there was last evening.
It was soon evident that her tented residence would not hold all
the visitors and while Jthe tight
squeezing of these bachelor boys
and giris in a 12 _ 16 tent had its
advantage of bringing them ail very
close together they decided to take
the school house by storm and
finish their evenings' amusement

Atter.lion ls called to the remarkable cures that have been effected la
ease of partial disorders, hy the use
of Or. Williams' Pink l'ills for Pale
People. Some of these cures arc so
wonderful as to challenge belief, but
In every case the statements have
been carefully vetified and may be
investigated ' by anyone interested.
In this connection the case of Miss
B. -lillehan, of SI,. John, N.n., is
worthy of the most careful attention. "Miss Mllleliun r.rys: "Some
three years ago 1 was taken seriously ill with diphtheria. Tbe doctors
brought mc safely through this dreaded trouble, and I W'as assumed 'to be
well. But two weeks later I took a
relapse, my ttroat and limbs becoming paralyzed. 1 could neither speak
nor walk. I was under the best of
medical care, and after a few weeks
was able to sit up in bed, but my
throat, was still completely paralyzed
and I could only utter unintelligible
sounds. I was treated by three of St.
John's best physicians, for litis
trouble and my <ase was given up as
hopeless. A friend asked me to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, but I had
spent so much on medicine without
help that 1 thought it world be only
a further waste of money. However, 1
felt myself growing daily weaker and
weaker, and I decided as a last
chance that I would try the Pills. Ily
tbe time T had taken half a dozen
boxes I could walk across tbe floor,
something doctors had told me could
never happen again. I still continued taking the pills, my speocli returned, and I felt myself In perfect health.
My friends thought my restoration nothing short of a miracle, and I think
mvseif that. T "nave to thank Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that I am living today, and I feel .confident they can do
quite as much for others as they did
for nie." ���
Dr. Williams'. Fink Pills effect
cures in cases of tbis kind because
thev make new. rich, ied blood,
which foods and strengthens tbe
nerves, and tones up the whole system. It you are in need of a medicine give'these pills a tr'.al. We are

Conditions In the West
The bulletin referring more particularly to Ihe west says: "The western
provinces being the liiceea of the immigrant and the bachelor homesteader from the eastern provinces, have
to face the conditions which are incident to the opening up of settlement In a new country and therefore
cannot be adversely compared as regards school attendance with older
provinces of Canada, where conditions nre stable. There are many
things which render II. difficult for
the settler, whether immigrant or
Canadian born, to procure a working
education for his children���the principal of which are, for tlie Immigrant,
If a foreign lack of knowledge of our
language, and for all classes, if homesteaders, that they have to take up
land and make homes beyond the
point where municipal organizations
exist and which have unwillingly, for
some years to deny their children an

The value of lantern slides at such
meetings cannot he estimated. It has
three chief features. It provides an
attraction In securing an attendance;
it enables the speaker to show what
he is talking aboul and promotes discussion on the various subjects presented. In our past experience at
Btioh meatings we never had anything
like the interesting discussions which
i.ok place at the meetings where '.he
slides were shown. Many of the
evening meetings lasted until aftn
midnight, and the afternoon meeting.,
though started at. two o'clock, seldom
terminated before six. In addition to
lhe lantern slides the speakers had
literature for distribution, and suit
able printed matter was displayed on
large cards throughout the car. It was
a very common occurrence to see peo

The Canadian Government to Build

The Canadian government will soon
posses a more powerful reflector telescope iban any now In existence. It
has been referred to in the newspapers as "Hie largest telescope in the
world," hut this descrl] Hon Is misleading for two reasons: Vint, he-
cause its aperature, 72 inches, is to
be lhe same as that or the famous

New Form of Civilization
That the Basustos in South Africa
are capable of emerging from their
tribal system into a new form of
civilization, apart from white influence whatever, is the belief of Lord
Selborne, n former High Commissioner for South Africa.
"But it will take a great many
generations," he added. 'Yet the process has begun, and it is very Interesting to see the evolution from the
ordinary hut to the nice house, and
also to see the evolution I'rom the
tribal system of cultivation to that
of individual tenure of land. Those
in Europe who think that our civilization might he improved by our
aholition of all forms of private property might, do worse I bun consider
the attempts of the more intelligent
Bnsutos to escape from their tribal
Lord Selborne further declared hi.i
conviction that tlicre was nothing to
fear from lhe Bnsutos In South Africa unless they were misgoverned.
Mount Wilson Solar Observatory will
also be ready for iibc. Tho Canadian
telescope will, however, be a much
more efficient Instrument than Lord
Rosse's, Not only will the mirror be
much superior, but the mounting will
enable the telescope to be worked to
the full advantage, Tho Parsonstown
reflector has an altazimuth, not an
equatorial, mounting, and is operated
under such difficulties that, comparatively little ure has ever been made
of It.
Contracts  for the    new    telescope
have just been awarded to .1. Bras-
hear for the minors and other optical
parts, and to Warner and Swasey for
Hie mounting. The disk for the principal mirror will be made by the St.
Oobaln glass works, in Paris, but all
the grinding and figuring will be done
ln the United States.    The total cost
will be nearly $100,000.   Inasmuch as
(lie Instrument Is intended primarily
and notoriously for  work  of no immediate practical beenfit,    viz.,    the
spectographic measurement, of radial
stellar velocities, this sum represents
a very notable contribution    to pure
science ou the part of a government.
The telescope will have a parabolic
mirror of 72  inches  clear    aperture
and 30 feet local length, with a central hole ten Inches in diameter. The
mounting is to be similar to that, of
the Ann Arb _r and Melbourne reflect-
ovs, with a sl-tcioh tube at one side
and noaily midway between the hearings nf the long polar axis, the balance being restored by the decliiiaton
motion mechanician! and by counterweights at the other side. Both polar
and declination axes will he carried
entirely on ball or roller hearings of
colllmatiiig  and  a complicated  system of counterweighted rollers for relieving the friction. The construction
will  also  be  simplified  in  other  respects,    e.g., all  fine circles will be
omitted as will the slow motion ami
in right, ascension.     It Is characteristic    of twentieth century technique
in astronomy that, although the new
telescope will have a full set of oculars   for   visual  observation,  no  program of visual work is contemplated.
Nowadays the camera takes the place
of the human retina. Tlie main purpose of the  instrument will be the
measurement of motion In the line of
sight of sta.s  fainter than the iifth
magnitude;  a task beyond the light-
gathering power of nearly all existing
(jslescopes.    For such work the tele-
scope will  generally he used ln the
Cassegraili form;   the light from the
main   mirror  converging    toward   ,i
focus,   will be received by a second
hyperboloidal   mirror  of    about    19
inches aperture  and  10  feet    focus,
placed about 23 feet above the main
mirror.    The   light    pusses    thence
down through tin hole in the   main
mirror, and Ihe star images are form
ed about three feet below the latter
Here the spectrograph will be placed
For (he fainter stars of low dispersion
the spectograph    will    probably    be
placed at the prime focus. An lines

in different parts of Canada is now in

Propose Assistance to Wool Gri-cs
The live stock  branch  of the  Dominion department    of agriculture is

History Dates Back to the Year 720���
The Aztecs Established an Empire
With a High Grade of Civilization
Before the Invasion of the Span-
The republic, of Mexico, officially
called the United Stales of Mexico,
was one of the two great vice-royal-
lira of Spain In the new world. Mexico and Peru, represented the dominions of a territory extending from tlie
undefined north to the extremity of
South America.
From the hopelessly confused legendary accounts of events ln prehistoric Mexico, It Is possible to make
out only n rough outline of wbat happened. Tho Toltecs began a long
course of wandering through the valleys about the year 720. They held
sway until 1103, when their power
was overthrown and they themselves
driven southward through Central
America. Their conquerors tho Chl-
chimecas, held the land until they
were, 111 turn, overpowered hy th��
Aztecs, who bud wandered Into tbe
country from the north.
Aztecs Established Empire
The Aztecs established an empire
with a high grade of civilization considering the wildness and savagery ol
tbe rest of the American hemisphere.
The architecture, government, mode
of living, and commerce were such as
this  year  to associations    of    wool  to astonish the Spaniards under Cor-
growers in the preparation and display ot their wool clips for market.
Associations, In order to receive this
aid, must be organized in accordance
with the regulations of the branch,
and membership is limited to actual
owners of sheep. West of Fort William an association inusl: contain at
least. 3,000 sheep, or sufficient to
comprise one carload of wool; east of
there, a relative number. The services of expert wool classifiers, who
will take charge of and perforin the
grading, classification ami preparation of the wool will be provided.
This proposal represents much
more Hum a mere continual ion of the
work undertaken last year, when two
wool classifiers, in the employ of the
live stock branch, visited the western
provinces and gave practical instruction nnd advice to sheep raisers upon
wool growing.
Rather it, means the introduction of
a definite scheme whereby wool producers may be actually assisted in
preparing 'nd presenting their wools
upon the market in the most, acceptable fashion.and thus be in n position to eater more dll'dcliy to the re-

1,000   Chrones   for   Day
A suggestion is made in the current
Revue Bleue for Ihe purpose of bringing the chronological system Into line
with the decimalization of money,

This new proposal involves the division of the*day Into twsnty periods,
called bores, instead of twenty-four
hours, each bore being similarly divided into fifty periods, called
chrones, each chrone���about one and
a half minutes���being tlie thousandth
part of a day���as the gram and the
meter are the thousandth part, respectively, of the kilogram and kilometer. Tbe chrones are further subdivided into centichrones, the equivalent of a Becond.
