A Trip to Toyland
Aud how do you get to Toy-land?
To all little people the Joy-land?
Just follow your nose
And go on tip-toes,
It's only a minute to Toy-land.
And oh! but it's guy In Toy-land,
This bright, merry, girl-and-boy-land
Aud woolly dons white
That never will bite
You'll meet on the highways In Toy-
Society's Uae, in Toy-land,
Tho dollies all think it a joy-land
And folks In the ark
Stay out after dark
And tin soldiers regulate Toy-land.
Thore's fun all the year, In Toy-land,
To sorrow 'twas ever a coy-land,
And steamers are run.
And steam cars, for (un,
They're wound up with keys, down iu
Hold   jiimntng-Jacks thrive in    Toy-
land ;
Fine castles adorn this Joy-land;
And bright are the dreams
And suuny the beams
That gladden the Iucch In Toy-land.
How long do you live la Toy-laud ?
This bright,  merry, glrl-andboy-land
A tew days, at bost,
Wo stay as a guoat,
Then good-bye, forevor, to Toy-lani
Be Not Forgetful*^
Some folks believe in angels   '-   -—■
A-prowllug around on
Experience tenches me botl
You   may   take   it   for
Las' night a dreamy-eyed
Crop' up in the darkness*
"Please gimme a quarur, mltrta
Ter pay for a supper and bed."
1 looked at him sharp aud I thought
I saw a strange light In his eyes,
An' „ sudden thought came upon me
'Twas an angel chap iu disguise I
Ho I reached dowu In my breeches,
And gin him my last stray dime,
An' he crept back Into the darkness,
A-blessln'  lue all the time.
A calm like peace came on me,
An' them blessin's rung ln my ear,
Till later that night I run across
That thai- angel a-guwilln' beer.
Alter all. It done mc more good,
To give to thnt thirsty moke.
Than if he'd 'a' been an angel.
A-playln' a practical Joke.

"God make my little boy
To grow to a man of courage
And fill sad souls wltb Joy."
He Iny on her breast a rose-bud -
An opening flower of youth—
And she smiled and kissed him f, nd-
"Make him a mau of truth."
The ycarB with their joys    :-nd sorrows
Passed as thc fleet yeurs do
With many ft storm and tempest
And sunshine sifting through,
With eyes oft veiled with shadows.,
And spirits weary, too,
And amid the storms and ihe    sunshine,
The babe to manhood grew.
The mother bad tilled tier mission,
Aud early sought her rest,
He tolded the wasted lingers
Upon her pulseless breast.
He bowed and he kissed her forehead
And then he turned away,
But the sunlight fell upon him—
Heaven was near that day.
In the mountains the railroad bridges
Had all been swept away,
But a torcli ln the inky blackness
Had held thc train at bay.
From under the wheels, all bleeding,
They brought him to the light.

So Lonely
Come,   tender   babe,   and
Thy silken, golden ringlets rest :
Shut   up    thine   eyes, those limpid
As blue, as sunny as the skies;
Hush,   bust),    thy   sobbing,   go   to
While angels o'er thee vigils keep.
He sleeps, my darling baby boy,
My Hie, my hope, my sweetest Joy;
How like a budding, blushing rose
His tiny mouth, now in repose!
How white, his chubby, dimpled lists
How plump and creased his dimpled
wrists !
His little neck, how soft and sleek,
His chubby legs, how childish weak!
How sweet to gaze on baby's face
And dream of future manhood dnys.
How sweet to gaze on baby's face
And dream of future manhood days !
There's something In the good man's
It Is very rare to see,
On   Ills   brow   Is   throned ,, certain
That tells us he Is lree.
Why these smiles and all this smirking,
Whoro onco there was a frown ?
oh, what strange Influence is   working ?
All. his wife Is out of town !
Ho was ne'er disposed to cavil,
And was limited In wealth,
And whon he bade her travel
To the seashore lor hor health,
Sho said, "Won't you be lonely?"
Then he mournfully looked down,
"I shall miss you dearest, only,"
And his wife went out ot town !
Foolish woman, pray tako warning,
From these lines so sadly true;
Though ho writes you ovory morning
And swears he pines lor you,
He's a giddy, giddy mnshor,
And he's doing things up brown,
In a (riskier way and rasher,
Since bis wife Is out ol town
The Christmas Spirit
See the Christmas Spirit !
Ah, what a beautiful sight. "Tell

"To the children, the Christmas

were congregating   about   the Tower I
of the Mocks with Joy in their hearts
and in their mouths tt song; "Glory
to (iod iu the highest, and on   earth

Miss Livingstone at Cranbrook
Tuesday evening terminated the
work which sbe was sent to Cran-1
brook to perform on behalf of thej
Women's Institute, but the results
of ber work in the midst of Cran- j
brook branch will long be remembered.
The lectures and demonstrations
which Miss Livingstone rendered
were really of high class merit and
well repaid the attendants who by
their presence showed they were In
sympathy with the motive the institute is so admirably supporting—
Home nnd Country.
Tbe series of meetings that hnd
been arranged began on Monday
morning nnd was to take the form
of a lecture but it rather developed
into the more familiar direction of
a talk on general household topics
and n general outline ns to wbat
lines the future meetings would take
Evidently there was a quantity believed more in "home" in the morning because of the larger attendance
ut the afternoons meeting. This
wns very largely representative of
the interest that has been recently
shown at thc Women's Institute regular meetings.
Miss Livingstone made her nfter-
noon gatherings proper demonstrative meetings, the local ladies having had a cooking range and all necessary apparatus arranged for beforehand, Miss Livingstone gave
some very practical illustrations of
the principals sbe was endeavoring to
show governing most any kind of
cooking, afterwards handing out tasters to her attentive audtence.
At her closing lecture to which the
Farmer's Institute hnd been so generously invited, the lecturer took for
her address the cutting, curing, and
cooking tbe different parts of beef,
explaining just which were tbe dear
and which were the cheapest purts of
meat to buy, also the why and tlu
wherefor. Another point thnt wns
strongly recommended to her listen
ers was that they were ns far ns possible to smoke their own meats, illustrating this With a sketch roughly drawn on pnper; also drawing notice to a smoking apparatus that n
.Mr. Johnson of Nelson, had very Ingeniously mnde for himself in thc
side of n bill
Miss Livingstone strongly advocated the women of Crnnbrook starting
out n crusude against tbo way ment

and also showed to her listeners the
advantage Incldently of having a cn-
operatlvo inundry in tbc city illustrating this with an instance wbere
in one plnce in tbe east, not In the
west, that she had stayed nt, all It
cost, thc household for their washing
per month was $1.0.., the system used simplifying the expense nnd convenience therewith.

many remarks passed as to why a

Christmas Interests
Cranbrook is celebrating or rather
beginning to celebrate the Christmas
season na she has so often done before.
The interest that is bo often observed upon tbo faces of the children
at this time Is usually traceahle to
the window settings that have been
arranged in the various stores of
the city.
Tbe mysterious outings "be" or
"she" makes and for the tlrst time
in thc year wants to go alone because "he" 0r "ahe" wants, to go to
some place that wouldn't interest
you or see someone about something
"I'll tell you nfter sort of air" all
of which strongly Indicates that
there Is something unusual on thc
Its Ohrlstmafl season, have you not
noticed It, tho way your children's
eyes sparkle us so-and-so's store la
mentioned or a parcel is brought into the house ami you are reluctant
to open It tbe unusual interest it
arouses? This is a time of good cheer
a time to laugh, to be charitable and
a time when man is compelled oven
against bis will to exorcise Faltb,
Hope and Charity to his (ellowman.
ThiB is tho time when everyone is
watching the papers for tho specialties tbe various stores are arranging
for tbeir patrons nnd we want to
take this opportunity of drawing
your attention to those who are supporting the Prospector the whole year
round. Tbose advertisements that

in London musical circles, "Stella*'
has retired to vent in the country to
recover from her excitement.
I have talked with Miss Amy Sher
win about her protegee. Naturally
she is enthusiastic, and disdains to
use any but superlatives in speaking
of little "Stella."
"Although abe is not yet sixteen,
she ih a finished singer," she said to
me. "There fs absolutely no trace of
unusual musical talent in her family
Her father Is of French extraction ;
her mother is a charwoman. They
are hoth very ordinary, so that -Stella's natural talent and Intelligence
are all the more wonderful. Her
voice is a pure, natural soprano of
remarkable strength nnd sweetness,
nnd has range up to F in alt. Also
f might add, she has lots of temperament, and what one might he excused for calling a devil of a temper. 1
believe by the time she is eighteen
she will be universally recognized as
one of the world's greatest singers."
In appearance "Stella" Is tall and
well made for bor age She haa a
good stage presence. She iH fair
with blue eyes, and has charmingly
natural manners.

London.—Less than n year ago
"Stella Carol," a girl of If", born of
poor parents, was singing for alms
in the streets of London—today she
is one of the most sought-after child
prodigies in London, Following her
first public concert ftt Quaen'B Hall,
the London musical critics have run
out of superlatives In trying to do
justice to her voice. Who has been
hooked for a aeries id concerts at
$500 a piece, nnd Oswald Stoll,
shrewdest of English vaudeville managers, has offered ber in vain Q long
engagement at $500 a week, one
critic has gone so fnr an to declare
that nothing like her has been heard
since the early days of Jenny Lind
and Patti.
"Stella's" short career is one of
those real life romances that put to .
blush even tho best tales of the fiction writers. Like s„ many London
children with good voices, "Stella"
and her sister wero sent into the
•streets at night to sing for almB. It
was lust before last Christmas at
a time of the year when people are
supposed to be charitably inclined
and the takings of the street singers
are large.
By mere chance "Stella" and her
sister, dressed in rags, paused in
front of the home of a former concert singer, Miss Amy Hhorwin, one
time known a*. tbe "Tnsmaman
nightingale." The clear notes of
"Stella's" voice penetrated the walls
and brought Miss Hherwin out in
great haste to see its possessor. In
a few moments the two little Btreet
singers wore inside Miss Shorwln's
home, answering questions.
Tbo result won Miss Buerwin ar
ranged with "Stella's" parents to
adopt thn child and train her for a

ferrod to an expert electrician. That
the now Tungsten lamps would not
stand as long, and would break much
easier thau the old style lamps, and
that the cost of maintenance was
much larger.
Dr. King wont on to say that his
company had no desire to hold up
thc city, and he did not believe that
the city expected the Electric Light
Company to furnish lights at less
than cost.
Mayor Hunt, asked whnt was the

Dr. King stated that n required
500 watts to supply the arc light,

Mr Aikeus said that two Tungsten lamps equalled ono are. and
that it cost $5.20 for power, and
¥2.05 extra for its maintenance.
It was suggested that the council
appoint a competent man to estimate
the cost of lighting the city, and report to the council.
Alderman Bowness said that he did
not thoroughly understand the mntter. that he would not vote on the
question until he had received the necessary information.
City Clerk Roberts said that under
the agreement, the cost ot maintenance was up to the Electric Light
Alderman Campbell said that he

The company has secured from tbe

Burning old women Ht the slake aS
j witches is a pleasantry no longer indulged in, even in Salem, but belief
In witebcrait is not altogether dead,
only a few months ago n woman in
Jersey City hnd a neighbor cnlled to
court on the chnrge of protending to
possess powers of evil and threatening to use them unless paid to desist
As the complainant bad buffered a
streak of bad luck, in spite of paying to ward it off, her belief in her
friend, whom she railed tl witch, was
cruelly shattered.
More recently a woman living uenr
Butler, Penn., was accused of being a
witch. Mrs. l,aupaule Other was the
victim of tills ancient superstition.
Sbe was charged by Mrs. Julia Kroner, a (urmcr's wife, with having gone
to the Kroner barn and "casting a
spell" over a cow so an to prevent
her giving milk, Mrs, Kroner opculy
made thc charge of witchcraft In thv
court, but tbc judge refused to consider it other thnn one of disorderly
conduct. On tbis ground Mrs. Orber
was found guilty and lined   -jr.
Other tales equally absurd could be
told of the rural districts, but none
possess the elements ot a witch story
so much as that of Abel Splva and
his brother William, who lived until
a few years ago In McDonough bounty, Illinois. The events with which it
deals are u matter of court record at
Macomb, the county seat.
Abel Spiva's forefathers came from
the Carolina:* at a time when belief
in witchcraft was strong, and tbey
brought their superstitious with them
into what waB then the Western Wilderness. Thus Abel honestly inherited his belief in witches, us did his
brother William, who as a witch doctor had quite as extensive a practice
as a regular country physician of
tbose days. Whenever tbe simple
folk of the neighborhood "felt a
spell"—to which they attributed all
their sickness and 111-luck—they called
ln William Splva, and he drove out
the witches; at least he convinced his
patients that he did.
One day Abel Splva told his brother that he was bewitched. Kvery
night, said Abel, a witch took him
from his bed, transformed bim into a
horse and rode him wildly about the
country to attend the meetings of the
Devil and hiB host of Imps. As a
result Abel was so tired in the morning that he found it hard to do the
work of his farm. William didn't
suggest that Abel's complaint was
probably sheer laziness, for tbey
were agreed that the only wny to
break the spell was to Hnd tbe witch
and kill ber. Ho they began to
cast about for a likely woman they
could accuse.
It so happened that at tbat time
Mary Friend, wife ot Charles Friend,
a farmer living near tho Spiva's, was
dangerously ill with n (ever which
had battled the local doctor. Not
believing in witches the Friends had
refused to call in William Splva, so
when Abel opined that Mary Friend
was probably the witch that found
so much enjoyment In changing him
into a horso, he hnd a ready and
willing listener In Willinm. The two
brothers decided, after scant reflection, that Mrs. Friend was the witch
and tbat ber illness was only shammed in order to give her an opportunity to -lie in bed and. rost after
her nightly tides in the Dovil's
camps- ;
At llrst William Splva;)was puzzled
as to how to rid his brother of the
witch's spell, but after consulting his
"witch's book" he hit upon a novel
plan. Abel must go into tbe woods,
carve the outlines ol a woman's figure in the bark of a tree, give it the
name of "Mary Friend, the Witch,"
mold a silver bullet and at sunrise
tlie following morning shoot the image. Thus, reasoned William Spiva,
would tbe spell be broken, for it would mean nothing else than Mary
Friend's death.
Abel Splva did as his brother suggested and returned to his work with
a feeling of renewed vigor. Shortly
before noon he was chopping wood
when a passing neighbor called out:
"Heard the news, Abel ? Mary
Friend is dead."
"Oh, I knew that," remarked Abel
indifferently. "I killed her. She
was a witch and I shot her with a
silver bullet." And he told the
story of hiB bewitchment and how,
as he thought, he had killed Mary
The news of Abel Spiva's confession
spread quickly, and from all sections
of the countryside farmers came to
ask htm about it. His story sounded incredulous, but he told it with
bo much seriousness that it proved
convincing, especially as she hnd died
on the very morning Abel tired at lur
carved Image on the tree.
While the majority of Abel Spiva's
neighbors believed that Mary Friend
had met hor just deserts tbere was
one who was convinced tbat a crime
had been committed. Having no
faith fn witches he filed a complaint
before Justice of the Peace Tr Id well,
charging Splva with murder. .Vbel
was arrested, and upon being arraigned in court pleaded guilty.
Sqiuire Tridwell himself was a believer in witches, hut he admonished
the prisoner tbat his confession mads
| him liable to a death sentence. Abel
insisted on his guilt, however, nnd
, the Justice reluctantly sentenced him
to be executed forthwith, "the same
; M he shot the woman"—so reads the
j old court record—by being stood
against a tree and shot by tbe con
1 stable. Because of Spivn's plea no
1 evidence was produced to show that
| Mrs. Friend had not died as thc result of n bullet wound.
From the courtroom to tbe   woods
at the edge of the  village went   the
constable and  his prisoner, folio.ved
.by a crowd.      Agnlbst a tree     they
placed Abel Splva, and the constable
raising bis    long barreled  "squirrel
rifle to his shoulder, was about      to
! tire when tbere came a shout    dom
j the road. It was tbo warning cry of
| Samuel Wilson, then a young 'nwyer
and later Col. Wilson of tbe Sixteenth   Illinois   Infantry,   riding   home
from court    in an adjoining county.
] He demanded to know what the pro-
I ceedlngs meant, nnd  when tbey were
! explained    to    him    he   ordered the
shooting stopped,
|    "It's   against    the   law," he told
I Justice Tridwell. "You have no right
to send this man to bis denth.    You
can only bind him over to tbo court"
"It is the law, and it Is here," the
Squire retorted, taking from bis carpet-hag tbe    Illinois   statutes     nnd
pointing to that section which     imposed the death penalty for murder
Wilson tried fi new tack.
"If you must shoot this mnn," be
argued,    "surely   you   will give him
sufficient time to prepare to meet bis
This appealed to the stubborn
Judge, and he consented to give the
prisoner a week in which to settle his
worldly affairs and prepare to die.
Bptva was thereupon turned over to
Sheriff Francis D. Lips, but he refused to act, and Splva was released,
never to be tried on that charge
Some months later, however, he
felt himself again "under a spell,"
and his brother William told him
that his wife was the guilty witch.
William advised Abel to wait until
Mrs. Spiva was asleep, and then
with a knife draw a single drop of
blood from ber forehead "without
letting ber know it." This treatment, William said, would "break
the spell."
According to instructions Abel
sharpened his long hunting knife, and
that night pricked bis wife's forehead
Startled from tl sound sleep, she sud.
denly sat up in bed nnd the knife
cut a deep gash down ber cheek.
Abel SplVa was arrested and In-.
dieted for assault witb intent to kill
but for some renson the cnNe was
not pressed, and he never was brought to trial. But to her dying day
his wife carried the scar as a ghastly emblem of Abel Spiva's belief In
