Two Transcontinental Railways, the Provincial Government and the
City of Kamloops are spending from $8,000,000 to $8,500,000 in and
around Kamloops this summer.
Great Transcontinental Railways like the C.P.R. and the C.N.R. know what they are doing. The C.P.R. purchased 1250,000.00 worth of property, to
eulurge its shops, yards, and round houses at Kamloops.
They realize that Kamloops is to be the logical and great divisional point, between the two groat Western Cities—Calgary and Vancouver, situated us
it is on iln; Thompson River, its future as a manufacturing centre is assured.
Why are the C.N. R rushing Ilieir line down the North branch of the Thompson River and building a bridge costing $250,000.00 over tho Thompson
River, to get a site on the water front of the City of Kamloops!1
It is reasonable lo conn: to the one natural conclusion—Kamloops with its present population of 4,500 to 5,000 people will double its population within
fifteen months and will have 15,000 in a few years-
Tlie lots in the'original townsite are held at a high figure and thoy are practically the ouly vacant lots f'»_ .sale. Lying south-east of I lie original
town-He, it needs bin a glance at tlio City and its environments to realize that:—
It is the only direction ii! which there is room for the city to expand, and oven at the present time the houses are built right out to the border of
the Bee-man Addition. Only I- blocks from the highest priced property in the town, you can imagine how reasonable the prices of #2in to WJO per
lot are. when you consider each lot is 5U feel in width—twice the size of lots in the average residential addition. The terms offered l-« down and 5
per cent per month for 18 months place the opportunity for safe investment, within the reach of all. Only half of the addition—every other lot—will
be sold this year.    They will lasl, but a very short time.
and after seeing the photos of the town and addition, which we will he pleased to show you at our oflice, you, too, will believe and get iu while
the selection is good.

Investors Vou Must Beware
To the Editor, Proapector,
Oranbrook, B.O.
D..ar Sir:
I beg to crave the attention of your columns on a matter
of great seriousness, in so far as iin- Citizens of Cranbrook are
concerned. Recently a number of real estaie brokers from out-
iile points, have arrived in this city disposing of property situated
some distance from the Industrial OentreB of particular towns.
Prom au economic point of view, a loug time musl elapse before
lhe buyers of the property in question can possibly obtain any return upon their Investment; hnl unfortunately a smooth tongue
leads them to believe otherwise, and It is wiih the ooject of
Preventing the Citizens of Oranbrook Irom being misled, and I now
venture to address the following suggestion through the columns
of your valuable journal. I am prepared in any case when
approached by a prospective Investor, to thoroughly investigate—
(a) The exact locality of the property which thoy
intend purchasing
(b) Tlie accuracy of all such information as may
have induced them lu make their proposod
I might stale that this Information will be afforded gratis
except thai Inquirers will have to defray the cost of any telegram
which 1 may have lo send in order to obtain the desired inform.
ation, and auy other disbursement which thoy might authorize me
to make,
I trust that the Citizens Jof Oranbrook will in future avail
themselves of my oiler.
Yours faithfully,
Mayor of the (Jily of Cranbrook

Early in the week Cpnslablo Walsh of Kort Steele brought his
daughter Lizzie aged I", in lo tlio St. Kugene hospital she having
boen badly burned In a lire which occurred iu the M. E. Walsh
store of Porl .Steele. Waller Walsh. I.'I years of age, had jusl
tilled tho gasoline lamp which hung from the coiling, and a few
drops spilled on the lloor. As lho boy was walking out of the
door he stepped on to lhe head of a parlor match which lit and
caused the gasoline to isnite. The boy ran to the nearest hotel
lor help while the bravo girl endeavored In smother the lire by her
drosses. In this way, however, she herself was soeu covered with
Manic*. When assistance came they found the girl rolling in Ihe
snow iu front of the store trying to put out her burning clothing.
Overcoats, etc., were hurriedly applied and the Humes smothered.
The heroine was taken to ilie Imperial hotel where Dr. Watt tended her.    Later ill the day she was brought to Cranbrook
While hor injuries have been very painful we are glad lo
know she is sleadly improving.

A Story of the
Year 1985
Copyright, W10, by American Pre«
lt was at tlie beginning of the present centuty that one uf the gatherers
of those colossal fortunes quite common at the time founded iiu institution
fur original sclent itic Investigation.
Soon after the corps uf scientists employed there begun their worb they
made the discovery that living parts
of u body might he substituted for de-
cay Ins parts uf another body, For
iustaii- e. 11 knee might be replaced by
» knee taken from a different person,
serving the purpose ot a new knee.
From this starling point the expect'
meut era proceeded step by step till
there was no part of tlie human body
that they could not supply.
Nearly half a century elapsed, how-
ever, before these gentlemen succeeded in reptaelug all the parts Ui a single
human body by similar oiirtu from other bodies,
The lirst perfect combination man
was completed at the Institute last
year. There was not an organ or a
part of mi organ In bim t*mt had not
been taken from another person. The
man whose parts had boeu all removed and replaced had been named
I'eter Sykes, a criminal condemned for
murder. He was given tbe choice of
being executed or turned over to the
professors to lose his Identity by becoming another person, He shuddered at the Itnmolltlnn of his own personality, but consented rather than die
the death of a felon.
The case was the first that was successful In producing an altogether new
being. The operators who made or, .
rather, combined him considered that
their first duty toward him was to
name him. They chose tbe Latin word
omnium, meaning "of all"—thnl is, Mr.
Omnium was made up of all kind, of
persons. It was expected by the unscientific laity that be might he opposed to giving up the name of Sykes.
but as there was nothing of Sykes left ,
in him he made no objection whatever. Indeed, lie did not remember
ever having been Sykes. The life
Sykes had led was nut In bim at all.
Since Omnium was entirely experimental, the professors who lind manu- ■
factured him gave orders that he was
not to be permitted—at least for some
time-to leave the Institution. Hut a
certain part nf his brain and his right j
band had been taken from a burglar
The consequence was ilmt though
locked iu by a guard he found no trouble in picking the lock with such Im-
piements as he found lying about and
walked forth Into the world the flrst
man born of a great many wot Iters
and Jusl as many fathers.
As might have been expected, this
fragmentary though entire individual I
followed ihe Biroiigest or all the natural laws -Uie law which unites tbe
sexes. His component parts had been
taken from persons between twenty
und thirty. His average ttge was there- i
fore"twenty live, a time of life when u !
man's fancy turns io love. He had
been well dressed by the professors; I
and as they feared he might get uut
into Ihe world without funds they had
placed a roll of bills in tils pocket.
Feeling hungry, lie went Into a restaurant, where he ate it good meal nnd
took a desperate fancy to thc cashier.
wlio was a very attractive young woman of twenty, Having scraped nu ac-
quulutauco with her, be Invited her to
go to the theater with him tbat evening, an Invitation she accepted.
It should be noted here that Omnium
ou entering the world ns a combination man obeyed the two most Important natural laws. The lirst thing he
did was to satisfy his hunger, the second to make love.
Miss Mabel Thompson, the young
lady to whom Omnium paid his addresses, found him a very puzzling per-
bou. Instead of having a few characteristic traits he had a hundred. The
flrst clashing of Idiosyncrasies she noticed was between (hose of a spendthrift and a miser, a portion of whose
brains had been engrafted within his
cranium. I list en _ of engaging seats at
the theater lie took a whole box. This
was embarrassing to Miss Thompson,
who was a very modest person. What
was her surprise when nfter the play
he took her to supper ami ordered one
herring for the twu.
This episode, though neither nf them
knew it, showed from the llrst that,
though it was possible to produce a
perfect physical combination man. the
matter of those elements that are to
b_ classed as mental opened Up n new
(Md fur the scientists, it demonstrated that to place In the same skull two
such discordant elements as the Brains
of a miser ami a spendthrift Is to
make a bad combination.
But Miss Thompson waa doomed to
further surprise at.d disappointment
While going home after the apology
for a supper -half a herring for each
of thom suddenly tbe strokes of a
bell fell upon their ears. At the tlrst
stroke Omnium stopped stock still.
There were three strokes, then nine.

to the truck, sto .] on the footboard
and was whirled away,
Can It be wondered thnt the poor
girl was astonished, disappointed, in
the man who had bo recently come to
her to kindle those hopes of marriage
and home which are born lu every
woman? Omnium culled upou ber the
next day aud was coldly received.
Had the two heard a remark of Professor Swelgler when Outuium was beiug put together they would buve understood the strange action. "This is
a portion of tbe bralu," the professor
bad said, "of Sam Tucker, the most
daring llremau in tlie department. lie
has taken twenty medals for bravery
at tires." And the professor Inserted
some gray matter in the cranium before bim.
Omnium explained to Miss Thompson thai when he beard the tire alarm
and saw the truck dash by he felt an
unconquerable impulse to get on the
truck and go to the tire. Ue regretted
leaving ber alone, but could not help
lt.   Whereupon she forgave him.
Reconciliations are always dangerous, ami It proved so in this Instance,
Omnium told her that he loved her.
clasped her in his arms and begged
her to marry hint.
Her answer was Unit, llrst. he must
make known who he was; second, his
means, und if these were satisfactory
to ber she would consent to a trial engagement.
Omnium after a few moments*
thought told her that he would prepare a statement for her embodying
the Information she asked for. The
truth Is he knew nothing about himself uud thought It necessary to do a
Job of thinking on the mutter. He
left ber, promising to bring tbe facts
the next evening. He bad hired a
room and went there from Miss
Thompson. Throwing himself Into an
easy chair, he begun to think.
The llrst person lie remembered being was Evtiu Drake. He recalled!
working in a counting room as a man.
of that name. Then being addressed!
as Dr. Harwood came glimmering in!

next Identity be felt, aud this gave
way to Julius, a colored man.
"Great heavens," he exclaimed, "is
there negro blood in my veins?"
He examined bis nails and the palms
of his bands, but could see no traces
of such an inheritance. This comforted him.
How It happened Omnium himself
could never explain. He remembered
jotting down the names as they oc-j
curred to him of persons he seemed to:
have been, nnd he recalled addressing
a note to Miss Thompson beginning,
"Tbe Information ns to myself prom-:
tsed you Is"- Then followed the name
Omnium, after which he had written,
the word alias, adding six other mimes.
He had evidently got confused at a
consciousness of havlriV been so ninny
different persons and did not know
what he wns doing, for tbe next morning Miss Thompson received the list
of his names through the mull.
"Whal Is it'.'" asked a friend who
was with her at the time, seeing her
turn pale.
"Don't ask me:" moaned the poor
"Do tell me."
"My lover confesses tu six aliases.
He's n crook."
Miss Thompson's friend after laboring with her for hours finally Induced
her to promise thai she would never
see her lover again nnd that she would
send his note to Ihe \n\\ve.
The escape of Omnium from the Jn-(
stitute occasioned consternation among
the professors wbo hnd constructed!
him, They could not know whal he
would do and feared some troublo
would result from bis being tit liberty
for which i bey would be held responsible, om- morning Dr. Tunshutler,
Ph. D., while looking at the morning paper noticed lhat a man had been
arrested with Iin If » dozen aliases to
hh name. He was a puzzle lo Ihc police. Neither (lie name Omnium nor
nny of the oMusps except tbat of a
murderer who had been sentenced to
bo exoetii.'d ami of whose execution
there was no record wits known to lhe
authorities. No oue knew what to do
wiih him.
Dr. Tunshutter threw down his pa-'
per, called n enrrtnge and drove nti
once to tho office of the superintendent of police. To his request that!
Omnium bo returned at once to the
Institute, the superintendent said that
the return  must  be made legally uud
asked for the man's Identity,
"How can 1 tell you that?" cried the
professor, •'There ure parts of more
than tifty people In him."
"Do you mean that yon can't give
me bis lepil name?"
"He bas none."
"ls he white or black?"
"I can't say; there is a faint trace
of black In him."
"He ls a man, isn't he?"
"Not entirely. There are cartilages
of several dogs, the skins of two rats,
and much sewing was doue with catgut."
"For heaven's sake, take him away!"
cried the superintendent, "I wouldn't
have the responsibility of either holding or giving up such a monster for
the world. I'll turn him loose, uud
you must have some one from your
confounded institute here to take htm.
If he gets loo.se again he'll get into
court, and It will require a I'tilted
States supreme justice to establish his
legal status."
Omnium was released from custody
that afternoon and caged by the keepers of the Institute. He managed to
get hold of a lawyer, and his case
enme up before the court. Seven attorneys, three judges ami a large number of jurymen lost their minds iu th_
Struggle to establish his legal identity. While these efforts were being
made be one day became very much
excited and fell dead. The professors made a postmortem examination
and found some of the catgut with
which the lobes of the brain had beeu
sewed hnd decayed
Then a law was passed forbidding
tbe construction of any more combination men.

Do You Realize
the Advantages of Concrete?
THK rising price of lumber has compelled
thc farmer to look fur a suitable substitute.
Concrete, because of its cheapness, durability and the readiness with which it can be
used for every farm purpose, has proven itself
to be cheaper than lumber and far more durable.   Our Free Book—•
"What tke Farmer Can Do
With Concrete"
shows the farmer how he can do his own work
without thc aid of skilled mechanics. It demonstrates the economy of Concrete construction as compared with lumber, brick or stone.

Raby's Own Tablets are n wonderful
medicine for little ones. They never

worms make their appearance or
when any of the many childhood ailments seize him. What, is more they
are absolutely safe and cannot harm
the youngest chifd. Mothers have the
guarantee of a government analyst to
this effect. Thousands of mothers,
through gratefulness for what the
Tablets have done for their children,
strongly recommend them. Mrs. E, J.

Prolonged Woolnf
Copyright.  1910.  by   American  Prefl
The couuty fair was In full swing.
Everywhere there was bustle and
Inughler and merrymaking ns well as
color and music and light. Today was
the day of duys. Prizes had been
awarded, aud such wus the wisdom
and tact of the judges that no exhibitor
bud gone unrewarded.
Iteujamln Dibble had taken first
Prize for bis fine llolsieins and second
prize for the mountainous Chester hogs.
These honors meant nothing to Ren
Jumln, for they were conferred upon
bis stock every year and had been
even In his father's generation.
The fact that Dorlndu Weed had
captured nil the tlrst prl7.es In housewifely arts did not surprise Iteujamln
ln the least. Everything Doriuda attempted was a p 'unuuueed success, excepting perhaps the capture of Benjamin Dibble, aud that this had not happened was Benjamin's fault.
Dorlndu Weed was sweet and fair
and dainty. Her eyes were blue like
the "ragged sailors" thnt bordered the
dusty roadsides. Benjamin bad worshiped Dorlndu from his boyhood, but
he had never dared address her beyond
the merest commonplaces. There had
never been but one thought behind hi"
worship of her, uud that wus to ask
her to marry him Of the preliminary
mouths of wooing he gave no thought.
He knew be wanted Dorlndu and he

and Benjamin had lived wretchedly on,
mentally cursing his shyness.
Now, doriuda was thirty-two aud
Benjamin wus forty. Tbeir parents
Were deal, their lands adjoined, nnd
their tv.o bouses, each one small nnd
detached, might be moved to a new
alte on the apex of the dividing hill
between the farms aud (bus become a
large, comfortable farmhouse. This
plan was Benjamin's sweetest dream,
but there wus no sigu of Its beiug
Benjamin paused one Instant lu front
of the domestic exhibit and furtively
adored Dorlndn's toothsome display.
From there he wan tie red uut to the
building where bis entile were quar
tered, and he arrived just In time to
eee Oorlndti Weed timidly stroking the
nose of oue of bis mild eyed llolsieins
From afar he watched her blissfully,
and his heart rose exultantly when she
passed ou quite unobservant of tbe
other exhibits.
Out In tbe open spaces where ve
hides of every description were huddled ln confusion, amid the cry of sideshow barkers, the conglomerate smell
of quick lunch carta, the odor of fresh
popcorn and steamed clams. Benjamin
stumbled over the gypsy caravan. Here
in a gay l.v festooned tent a gypsy crone
Was telling fortunes.
"Kind gentleman!" she hulled htm
eagerly. "Fur silver I will reveal the
future! I reunite broken hearts! I
make you successful lu love!" She
beld back the tent flap Invitingly, and
under the spell of some sudden Impulse Renjumlu Dibble entered and
■nt down on a small three legged stool.
The gypsy knelt before him nnd beld
out one brown hand, gay with sliver
"Silver!" she wheedled softly.
Blushlngly Mr, nibble extracted a
allver quarter from his pocket and
dropped It In her palm, then, embarrassed by her voluble thanks, he submitted his own hand to her grasp.
She bent her dark, disheveled head
atiove Its toll hardened surface for several moments nnd then scrutinized bla
good looking face with piercing eyes.
"Yon love," she said softly, "ye( you

bis hnnd, a film seemed to drop over
her sharp eyes aud her head bent over
bis hand.    Again she spoke, hut ber
Words were mumbled, yet  Benjamin's
eager ear caught every syllable:
"A* surely iir comes up the sun
Two hunt-eft ptinil be made as one,
A Rolilen bird without a nest
Shall icuil tin- weary heart to rest."
The gypsy lirted her head aud glanced sharply at him.
"What else?" demanded Benjamlu
The woman arose to her feet and
looked toward the door, where a little
crowd had gathered, waiting for an
audience. • ll Is enough—the rest you
must do so It is written," she said
bust lly.

"go'den bird without a nest," Benjamin confessed himself perplexed.

The prophecy of the united houses
was good fortune enough fur one day,
and. emboldened by this certainly that
his dearest hopes would he fulfilled.
Benjamin rushed hastily toward ihe
building where Dorlndu Weed might
be found. She who was to be his
future wife had stroked the nose of
h.s p;lze llnisteins. After these wonderful happenings It would be an easy
matter to Invite Dorlndu to partake of
be cream and cake. When one waa

10 talk much, and after tbe Ice cream
he might invite ber to other amusements In the grounds. There were a
loop 'he-loop and a merry-go-round
Benjamin Dibble stood stock still,
while all exuberance of spirit dissolved
like mist.
ln   the  distance   he   saw   Dorlndu, '
charming In her pale blue gown, hut
remo:e a* ever from his approucb. for
she was talking earnestly to a tall, j
dark   num.  a   dangerously   handsome ■
stranger, and together tbey were bending over some object ou a table between them.
Then It wns that Benjamin Dibble
remembered the gypsy's prophecy—
thut a dark man would come between
Dorlndu aud him. Aud here was the
dark man. The prophecy wus fulfill
Ing without delay.
Iteujamln turned away and tried to
satisfy the pangs of disappointed love
with hot frankfurters, steamed clams
tind coffee. He drank ginger ale and
pink lemonade to wash d*>wn huge
segments of pie nnd sugary doughnuts.
He spent money lavishly, buying
everything thut was offered. He purchased chances on all sorts of unknown articles and afterward found
himself ttie embarrassed possessor of
a pair of curling Irons, a lady's work
basket nnd a wax doll.
He bundled these treasures away In
the back of his buggy with a certain
elusive hope thnt they might prove
useful some day. He stopped In tlie
shed und stroked the noses of his cattle, as Dorlnda had done, and derived
a certain foolish satisfaction In the
action. It wns nt that moment Benjamin received Inspiration.
Back lu the main building. Benjamin
once more threaded the crowd In
search of Doriuda.
Although she was still talking to the
dark man. Benjamin pressed forward
until he stood almost ut her elbow
She saw him and smiled tremulously,
her delicate face flushing a soft rose
"Wlll you give me your advice, Benjamin?" she asked gently. "This gentleman Is selling weather runes. 1
want one for the barn. Our old one
wns blown off, you know. Shall I
choose a Hsh or an arrow?"
The delicious sense of Intimacy conveyed by this question cannot be described. Benjamin Dibble threw off
his old mantle of timidity forever and
stepped boldly forward beside Dorln
"Seems to me nothing looks so much
like a weather vane as a crowing cock,
Dorlnda. Hnve you got anything
else?" asked Benjamin of tbe dark
From the box of samples the man
brought forth several weathercocks
of different sizes. Each one was \
painted a dazzling gold, with crimson
comb and wnttles. He held forth the
largest one. whirling It about the
pivot as be did so.
"This Is the handsomest one I've got,
sir. I'd like to take your order for
tbat—$10 on delivery in ten 'days.
You'd like to wake up In the morning
and see that weathercock ou the cupola of your bum—eh V" He smiled Ingratiatingly. •
Benjamin Dibble was staring Intently at the glided cock, n queer expression dawning In bis eyes.   A certain
line was ruuning through his bend:
A golden bird without a nest
Shall lead the weary heart to rest
"Dorlnda." said Benjamin lu a ringing voice, "do you like tbut weathercock?"
"Yes, Indeed," agreed Dorlnda graciously,
"We'll take one of those," ordered
Benjamlu Dibble authoritatively. "You
can mnke out the bill to Mr. und Mrs.
Benjamin Dibble—Doriuda, that's all
right; you know, we're going to move
tbe two houses up on the hilt nnd
make one, and we're going to build a
new barn with n cupola and put this
golden bird on It."
"Why—why. Benjamin—I've thought
sometimes that was u lovely plnti—only
how do you know It wlll happeu?"
Dorlnda's eyes were very bright with
sudden happiness.
"I had my fortune told, aud the
gypsy said all those things. When I
take you home In my buggy tonight
I'll tell you about the golden bird and
how all this has come true. Just as tbe
woman said," explained Benjamin,
talking faster nnd more eloquently
than he had ever done In his life.
"It's nil perfectly wonderful," murmured Dorlnda on tbut homeward ride
after Benjamlu bud related the gypsy's
prophecy. "I knew you liked me, Ben,
but It seemed somehow as If you'd
never get up courage to ask me. It's
been a long time and theu to come alt
at once like a surprise."
"I've been tin awful fool, I guess,"
murmured Benjamin, his arm protect-
Ingly about her slim waist, his eyes ou
the round globe of the full moon. "My
life's beeu like traveling over level
ground year nfter year till I never ex
poctod anything else, and then waking

The existence of the bridge Is of
comparative recent knowledge lo Ihe
public, though the Indians In thut region have long known tbat there wns

settlers or that part of Utah, but link
credence was ever given to their

some travelers visited this freak of

The American privateer Eaglet cruising off Nova Scotia captured » British
merchantman, Ellen "Boyne, bul the
Eaglet's captain, not Hml lug her cargo
of BUfflcleul value to make It worth
his while lo tow her Into port or being prevented from doing so by the
proximity of British cruisers, decided
to huru her. The crew of tlie Boyne
were taken aboard the Eaglet and a
few days later were put ashore not far
from Halifax.
When tl became known what was to
be done with them one of the Englishmen stepped up to the Eaglet's captain
aud said to him:
"I would like to Join your crew, captain. 1 don't care much what Hag I
sail under, I've been a soldier In the
British army, but descried to gel rid
of a sergeant's wife who wanted to
get me tangled up with her. Thus I
took to the sea, aud here I am If 1
go ashore 1 might be recognized, for
the regiment I deserted from Is at
Halifax. Besides, 1 would rather remain afloat."
"You don't look nigged enough to
breast ocean storms," replied the captain, eying the youthful figure of the
man, whose eyes were blue, hair flaxen and on whose rosy cheeks not the
slightest sign of a beard had yet appeared.   "How old ure you?"
The man hesitated, then said that
be dtdn't know; he had never known
tils patents aud never had been told
his age. "1 enn light, captain," he
added. "In lhe urtny 1 learned sword
and bnyouet exercise."
"What's your name?"
"ltalph Rronson."

went straight to one of the Americau
sailors and, with a pleased expression,
said to him:
"It's ull right, Jack; I'm to be one of
"Well. Ralph," replied the other,
"since you don't wish lo go I'm glad
you're permitted to Join us."
From tbe moment Ralph Rronson
httd come aboard the Eaglet he had
striven to make friends with Jack
Drury. Drury had neither encouraged
nor repulsed the youngster's proffered
friendship. The iwo were very different. Ralph Mug delicately organized,
while Jack was a stalwart fellow and
something of n lender among his fellow tars. "1 don't see what the boy
wants of me," he said to them, "unless It Is protection, nnd he seems quite
able to take care of himself."
One morning a ship was espied on
tbe horizon, and the Eaglet's captain
stood over to investigate hor. Ile bad
a breeze which the ship hud not, and
by noon was near enough to her to
make her out. lie judged she was
Rritlsb, but could not tell. Ue fired a
shot across her bow. whereupon she
broke the blood red banner of England and. opening ports, run out several guns. The Eaglet responded by
breaking a flag on which there were a
palmetto tree and a snake—the stars
and stripes had not yet been adopted—
and the fight commenced. When It
ended by the British vessel strlklug
ber colors Jack Drury had taking a
leadership and covered himself with
glory, but he httd lost his right arm
and un eye. Ralph Rronson bad kept
beside bim and when ttie crew of tbe
privateer boarded the Britisher parried a blow of a cutlass which would
otherwise have split his friend's skull.
But just then Itrouson was knocked
senseless, by a blow from a musket,
and before be had regained conscious-
nesu Drury received ibe wounds that
cost him his arm and an eye.
But Ralph was only temporarily disabled und during tlie next few months
devoted himself when not on watch
to nursing the hero. When Drury wns
able to be about again be appeared a
very different man from what be had
been. At tlrst he was honored by bis
fellows, but the enthusiasm attending
war heroes after they have become
useless Is short lived. Drury could
not do a seaman's work, nor wns be,
thus disabled, lined for an officer. He
wns Invited by his captain to remain
on board as scullion in the galley, and

Among a crew made up of heterogeneous elements It was natural that
there should be enmities. Notwithstanding the affect Ion tbe Eaglet's
crew bore Drury there were several of
them who tailed htm and one wbo, no

being disabled, liegau to show tils
spleen toward hi in. ll was the old
story of the sick lion This man, Parsons, had been thrashed by Drury nnd
bad suffered the Ignominy of having

Jack's disability lie had made up bis
mind secretly tn gel his revenge. But
he knew Unit with the whole crew behind his enemy lie must continue to
throw the responsibility of if qnnrret

slur on everything Jack snid One day
when Parsons hml virtually given Drury the lie Ihe latter turned ou him and
"See here. Parsons; Ibis bus been going on long enough. You have been

to their objection, aud a meeting wits

It was agreid that the affair should

and the second mate, who was In
charge of the ship, had promised to

With tlmt Rronson took up a position be tiad learned in ttie Rrttlsh

stepped lightly aside. Parsons turned and brought tils cutlass down over
Ralph's head. Ralph received it on
his own weapon. Ills arm was bared,
bis sleeve being rolled above the el-
how. Tbe arm was round, but there
was a fair muscle on it. Parsons, angry at not being tittle to get at Ids enemy, thought little of caution und exposed his left side, nnd Ralph rammed

could not understand the situation.
There was no one near him ot the time
of whom to ask questions. So, springing up. he got Into ids clothes and
went on deck. Everything was peaceful, 'lhe crew were going about their
duties, us usual. The only noticeable
feature was a man on his knees swabbing a place on the deck. Drury went
up to him and, seeing that the water
in his bucket was red, became more
mystified than ever.
"What are you doing?" he asked thc
"Swabbing Parsons' blood."
"Parsons' blood!"
"Yes: be was killed In a fight this
morning at three belts."
"Who fought bim?" asked Jack, fairly aghast.
"Ralph Rronson"
"Then." snld Drury. "I'm going to
kill Rronson."
But Rronson knew what his friend's
first emotions upon knowing that he
had been tricked would be und bad
gone Into hiding.
Drury sought the boy. half minded
to curry out his threat, but could not
find him. Then Ralph's devotion began to dawn upon him. and tie sought
htm to take his hand aud gulp out his
thanks. Stilt not IItiding him. he waited till it was time for Ralph to go on
watch. Ralph did not appear. Then
for the first time It occurred to hlro
tbut Rronson might have been kilted
or at least mortally wounded. Rut a
member of the crew reassured him,
telling him that the hoy had not re
ceived n scrnteh.
"Then what's he biding from me
for?" nsked Drury.
"Dunno. After the fight they tuk
him to the captain's cabin. Tbe captain gave 'hn a hunk by tilsself. That's
nil I knows about It."
Drury fretted and fumed. At foui
bells lu the afternoon an American
ship appeared, coming right on thc
Eaglet's course. When stie drew neai
she was spoken, nnd the Eaglet's cap
tain went aboard of her. He returned
with a bundle,
At sl\ bells Drury received word thai
the captain wished to see him In his

That's the end of the story, In s

Au authority on shoes says thnt pat-

: leather. When die shoes are to be put

At a recent meeting of the U. O.
Dairymen's Association the Directors decided to divide the Farm
Hairy Oompetlon which litis already
been in progress for one year, Into
two classes, iu order tbat a number
of our smaller dairymen in tbe Province may Imve a chance for competing for the cup, Medals, und houors
and not to be compelled to compete
agalnBt tlie larger dairies of the
Province thus giving the small man
an equal chance with the large one,
In this matter the Directors are
making arrangements for a cup, the
name of which will be published later, but one which will be of equal
Importance to that of the larger
trophy given by the Provincial Gov,
ernment. They are also giving
three medals corresponding with
those of the larger dairies.
The division of the competition
into two lots is us follows: Those
having live to Iif teen cows milking,
ami the lauger dairies those having
over fifteen cows milking. This di-
ision should induce a larger number of our dairymen In the province
to compete in ibis competition. All
the expense that it requires is that
they bo members of the B. ('.
Dairymen's Association and hold
themselves open for two inspections
per year, by such judges as may lie
appointed  by   the   Association.
For fuller particulars and entrance
forms, apply to the Secretary of the
of the B, 0. Dairymen's Association,
llon. Richard Mcllridc , cables tlie
"London Daily Espross" as follows:
"I strongly object to the reciprocity
agreement. There is no necessity
for such nor any general demand for
it in Canadn. Reciprocity will suddenly dislocate Canada's present
trade and divert a great deal of it
to the advantage of the United
States. This will have an effect on
our trade with Britain, which is our
best customer and at present absorbs
tbe greater part of our exports.
"It will not tend advantageously
towards the early so,ntion of the
problem of Imperial federation. Cn
doubtedly tho United States was actuated by a desire to secure control
of Canadian resources and at. tbe
same time secure n larger share of
tbe Canadian market for her own
"On the other hand, Canada's better plan is to trade as freely as possible with the Motherland and the
other parts ol the Empire to mutual advantage Instead of tleing ber
bands with nn outside country, which
may at any time decide to end the
agreement, with tbe result tbat Canada's trade will be again dislocated.
"The people of Canada should have
boen consulted before making any
agreement. The Dominion Government has departed from the policy
laid down Iiy Conservative and Liberal governments to consult fully all
interests before making extensive
changes in tho tariff,"

The words of the Wall Street Journal respecting the need ol the old-

It is useless for any to attempt U
believe, or to attempt to teach t e >
that God is great, a:id just, and loving, while at tlie same time teaching
that He prepared, before the foundation of the world, a'i immense torture
chamber in which thousands of millions would t>e forced to spend eternity. How our forefathers could believe this and yet believe somehow or
other that God is Love we do not understand, lt was their faith in God's
Love, and not their taith in eternal
torment, which constituted the power
of God working in them for good a".d
which offset the errors of their creeds
to a large degree. But no one of today who is at all awake can any longer think of worshipping a God inferior
to himself. A God unjust and unloving, or unkind nnd powerless, can no
longer be worshipped in spirit and in
What the world needs, and what
first, of nil the Churoh needs, is to g"t
doctrlnally straight in respect to the
Almighty s character, and in respect
to His purposes lor His human creatures. As soon us that condition of
mind shall have been readied there
will be no need to pray or ask for re-
vivals of religion- they will follow irresistibly.
But   what  do  we  wv opposing nny
such desirable denouement!9   We see;
two hundred thousand Protestant mm-
islers and Sunday School superintendents working against such desirable
results.    We see about two-thirds of
them advocating Higher Criticism-ln-
fidelity aud one-third of them striving >

specting  ttie Jenchinga  of  the   Bible

clous doctrines of devils foisted upon |
God's people by the great Adversely
during the "dark ages."   It is a sad
picture,   Has it no silver lining?
There are -till a saintly few in thei
world who are not bowing their knee
to Baal, not worshipping the golden
calf of mammon, not wandering, not
seeking to prove that they are de-1
Bcendants of monkeye, not seeking to
figure- God out of creation ami to say :
that nature ia God. ln this time,
when others are going into outer dark- i
neas, these children of God, feeding
upon His Word, are being blesa-d and
refreshed in spirit as never before
To them God's Word is shining mor.?
brightly as tho days go by; the rough
places aro becoming smooth and tne
dark places clear. To them the glory
of the Divine character is being re'
veuled. The secret of the Lord Is with
them. He is showing them His Cuvo-
nant and making them to understand
many of the deep things of His Word,

How to Stop Swearing.
When Sir Richard  Hawkins' ship,
the. Dainty, wus off thc Guinea coast
it caught tire and had  a  narrow escape from destruction.   Tho sequel, as
told   by  .lohn   Burnett  in   "Fighting
Admirals,"   was   curious:   "The   men
thanked God f<"" their deliverance and
as a murk of gratitude took occasion
to   banish   swearing   from   the   little
licet.   By general consent it wns or-
da imii   that    a    palmer,    or   ferrule,
should be carried by any one who was
'taken   with   au   oath'   and   that   he
j should   give   the   next   who   swore   a
! stroke with it.   At tho end of the day

Earl  Grey  Was  Doubtful  About the
Ethics of It However.
When Earl Grey, the Governor-
tleneral, was a youth, one ol his boyhood friendships was with Henry
Smith, who afterwards became Lieut.-
Ool. Sir Henry Smith, K.-.B., a commissioner of the London police. In
a book of memoirs which Sir Henry
has just published, ho tells of his early friendship with Bar] Grey, and how
on one occasion he galloped over from
Dotford to Howich to show him his
"I say, my dear fellow," Grey remarked on coming to rather an elaborate one. "tbis is the b-st testimonial  I ever read in my life."
"I am very pleased, indeed," I replied, "to bear your opinion of it.
for I  wrote it myself."
"What's that you are saying? What
do you mean!-"
"this is what I mean," I answered,
"If a man has not intellect enough
to write a testimonial in hi* own favor nnd energy enough to stand over
n friend till he signs it, he's not fit
for the position he aspired to."
"■ly Jupiter!" said Grey, with a
laugh, "there's little doubt you're
Starting bo well, there is small cause
for surprise in the fact that young
Smith made his way in the world. He
is said to enjoy the distinction of
being the only man whom Queen Victoria made a Knight Commander of
tho Hath without taking into her confidence either the Premier or the
Home Secretary. However, he could
scarcely have secured that honor as
he did Furl Grey's glowing testimonial.
Sir Henry tells many stories ot
famous criminals. One deals with
a certain Jimmy Smith, who narrowly escaped hanging. Shortly nfter this
Sergt. Roll met Jimmy at Wood Green
races, and asked him to have a
drink. As they were enjoying a chat
over their glass of gin and water they
were joined by a third man, whom
the iKilice sergeant introduced as "a
friend of mine," Presently this third
man finished his drink and left.
"Who's that?" inquired Jimmy. "H •
seems a nice sort of chap."
"Oh, he's decent enough," replied
Rolf.   "That's Horry, the hangman."
Jimmy's feelings were sorely hu't,
and in very forcible language he intimated that had he known the profession of the gentleman to whom he
had been introduced, he would have
declined to partake of refreshment in
his company.
The author mentions that in connection with a certain famous burglary, a curious fact came out. The
gift of "writing automatically" was
possessed by Lady Mabel Howard, of
Greystoke, Westmorland, and she was
asked by her friends to endeavor to
discover Lady Graham's lost jewels.
She wrote automatically, "In the river, under the bridge ut Tebay," which
was exactly the place where the burglars had thrown them.
Among Sir Henry's reminiscences
as recorded In the book, the day of
Mafeking mor- than holds its own.
"An American," he writes, "who
knew New York and its crowds, told
rne he had never seen anything approaching to what he witnessed thut
day. Thieves and pickpockets in the
centre of the crowd were cheering
for Baden-Powell, French, Kitchener,
and Roberts; knocking people's hats
over their eyes, nnd shaking hands
effusively while they were stripping
them litera-ly of everything they pos-
sensed, the iJord Mayor and his guests
looking down from the balcony,
charmed with the enthusiasm and
loyalty of Her Majesty's subjects."

Big Man and the Boys.
Dr. Beattie Nesbitt, who hns been
so much in the papers in connection
with the Farmers' Bank trouble, had
the faculty of making himself extremely popular with the energetic workers
who play such a big part in the winning of elections.
A scene that illustrates this to perfection was witnessed some years ago
in the doctor's committee rooms on
Yonge street, Toronto, on an election
night which found him the choice of
the electors. The large main room
was filled with men — chiefly young
fellows—who had willingly slaved to
obtain their chief's election. As each
man bringing glad tidings from various subdivisions arrived he was
greeted personally and warmly by the
Best of all illustrating the big man's
hold on "the boys," was a short,
young man who walked proudly up
to his chief and received a great handshake and "Good boy!" when he had
said with a glow of pleasure and a
proud ring in his voice, "We made a
; turn-over of a dosen votes for you in
our division to-day, doctor." The incident reminded one of the poet's description of the meeting of Napoleon
and the drummer buy at Ratisbou.

Recent Exhibition of the Canvases of
Paul   Kane,   Paul   Peel, Cornelius
KreighoH, Otto Jacobi and Others,
Proves   a   Revelation   to   Modern
Painters—Love of Art Has Shown
Remarkable Growth.
Can au tan art has succeeded in pn
lenting itself mainly us n rather dr
subject  for discussion.    There are
good   many   people   who   argue   tha
Canada has never done enough in tin
way  of   picture-making  to  be  wortl
white   talking  about.    This   may
due to the fact that for a good many
years, and until the beginning of thi
century al least, most exhibitions ii
Canada were particularly dull affairs
There  has been a   very  marked  improvement during the pust few years.
As was said by Sir Kdmund Walker, r
few months ago, there are more Can a
diau painters to-day under thirty-fiv •
years of age, doing work fit to be exhibited ut the Royal Academy, than
all the painters that lived iu Canada
forty or fifty years ago.
Nevertheless, from flPy years ago
up till the end of the nineteenth century, there were in Canada at least
eight or ten painters, whose work is
somewhat startling when gathered into one collection, as bus been done
recently at the Art Museum in Toronto. In that collection of hundred, of
pictures there wus not one by any
painter now living. The works were
collected from scores of private owners in Canada; from men who years
ago begun to take an interest in purely Canadian pictures—some of them
during the lifetime of the painter,
which is rather unusual. In all probability no exhibition of such an incongruous lot of paintings could havo
been made when the painters of them
were living. That they are all dead
excuses many of them from the criticism they would surely have got while
But the fact that the exhibiton was
one of dead painters' works by no
means explains the extraordinary interest taken in many of the canvases
at the Art Museum. The collection
contains some pictures thut ought
not only to interest the general public, but to stimulate thc flagging energies of some of our modern painters.
Paul Kane, Paul Peel, Otto R. Jacobi,
Cornelius Kreighoff, Henry Sandham,
Blair Bruce, and half dozen others,
have canvases in that collection, enough to demonstrate that the desire
and the ability to paint existed in a
very high degree in Canada as far
back as fifty years ago. At least
forty of the canvases shown prove
that at a time when Canadians were
taking a very languid interest in matters of trade and manufacture, anl
even in agriculture, the painter men
were tired with enthusiasm deep en-
noiigh to do daring things.
A large number of tho painters studied abroad, and some of their works
show thnt they imported into Canadian subjects a European atmosphere,
Paul Kane's buffalo hunt picture has
as many merits in color and dramatic
interest as anything shown nt the exhibition. But, though Kane spent a
good many years trailing after th.
plains' Indians, he failed to become
Indian enough himself to draw au
Indian pony. Some of his horses look
like war chargers idealized. The huf-
falos might be the better of a little
more internal economy. But lhe picture is full of go aud spleud'd color,
and it can't possibly fail to be interesting— somewhat perhnps because the
buffalo, as a subject of art, is now
relegated to the parks, and the Indian has become almost effete on tho
There is one picture of Kreighofl's
in the collection that contains more
motion to the snitare inch thnn any
other picture painted in Canada for
many a day. Thnt is "After the
Ball." which was done years before
Charles K. Harries wrote his maudlin
ditty bearing that name. Of course,
it's a French-Canadian ball and.
therefore, as lively as a half-breed
wedding up iu Athabasca. But there
are more than fifty figures in that picture, and every mortal one of them

done. When the same mnn did the
pallid "Phantom Hunter" and the eccentric shadowgraph picture called
"The Motiologuist' it seems that one
painter didn't need to stick to any
oue style in those bold open days of
Whatever technical and temperamental faults those pioneer painters
had, they surely hnd the gift ot abandon, of pure absorption in the things
they were doing, without absolute conformity to either the details of the
subject or the onnonu ol art, If a
group of painters nowadays should
start to puint in some of the styles
shown by these deceased painters
they would Iw dubbed a new school.
In those days they were largely individual painters, Kach man did the
thing he saw in his own way, nol
curing a continental for critics, of
whom there were few, and not much
for posterity, which could be trusted
to take care of i I self, It's not necessary for modern painters to copy
these pioneers. If they did, they
might go very far astray. It may be
often desirable, however, for some
men nowadays, who have far better
technical equipment, to get as much
of the real out-of-doors and pagan absorption into their work, as may be
seen in a few canvases at the Art
Museum. In which case most of our
living painters may not need to die in
ordi r to get the public to appreciate
their work.—Augustus Bridle.

Another Modern Miracle
Locomotor Ataxia Cured
The Sufferer Had Been Given Up as Incurable by Several
Doctors-Hospital Treatment Also Failed—Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills Worked the Miracle,
Before the dinenvery of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, locomotor ataxia
wns Considered an I It curable disease. II. has been fully demonstrated,
however, that this disease can he cured through the use of thcao pills,
where the treatment is persisted In, and the directions carefully followed.
Locomotor ataxia is a disease uf the spinal cord, uud tlrst shows itself
in an inability lo stand erect when lite eyes are closed, or iu the dark, lt
is characterized hy peculiar disturbances of lhe gait, and dittlculty in governing the motions of the legs. One of the commonest and earliest signs Is
it Mrcd feeling, particularly noted in the knees and ankles. This sensation
is provoked hy slight exertion, and is not relieved hy rest. Often a numb
feeling is associated with it, and these two symptoms are always present
in the early stages. As (lie disease progresses, there is an increase in the
duration and extent of the numb feelings, covering at times the foot alone,
then extending to the leg. The disease is usually of slow growth, and the
increase and intensity of tha symptom* is not noticed, but its progress is
constant, and generally approaches a total lack of feeling in the legs, causing a wobbling gait ami an entire inability lo govern the steps, As the
disease progresses the patient loses all control over bowels and water, and
becomes utterly helpless, and has to he eared for like a child.
In proof of the power of Dr, Williams' Pink Pills to cure this terrible
malady, Mrs. Sarah Jane Huller, of Antler, Blink., says: "For seven years
from 11100 to 1007, my son James was atllicted with locomotor ataxia. During that time lie was (rented by several of the best doctors in the West, but
their treatment failed to be of any benefit, and he kept growing worse and
worse, till finally he lost all control of his limbs, and could not move at all.
I bad to carry him from his bed to a chair, where I would have to tie him,
to enable him to sit up. He was as helpless us an infant; he lost all control of bis kidneys and hotels, and we daily looked for death to relieve him
of bis suffering. In 1006 we sent him to Brandon Hospital, hoping that
thc treatment there would benefit bim. In this, though, we were disappointed, and the hospital doctor advised me to take him home, us they suld
they could do nothing for him. At this time a friend advised the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. Being willing to try anything iu the hope of finding
relief for my hoy, I bought a supply. In less than three mouths I noted u
slight improvement in his condition. Ju six months be could walk onco more
and from that on tbe improvement continued, till now be is fully cured and
once more able lo attend school aud do the chores ahout tbe bouse. What
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done for him is truly wonderful, and I would
strongly recommend them to all sufferers, for they most certainly saved

So Says E. R. Parsons, writing in the
Dry  Farming Congress
This fall I have received so many
letters of the same tenor that uu answer through the Bulletin would seem
desirable. One farmer writes: "I
have been plowing my hind about
live inches, following strictly all the
rules laid down fur the conservation
of moisture, but getting only ahout
ten bushels to the acre, which is
hardly payable. How can I increase
my yieldP The trouble with this
man is the trouble with all—farming
too much on the surface. Deep plowing, deep rooting, and holding the
moisture where it cannot evaporate,
is the only antidote.
Besides the loss of moisture engendered by shallow plowing, we have to
consider ,an equally serious evil—tbe
combustion of humus. There is nothing facilitates this as much us shallow plowing and frequent shallow
Secretary Wilson hns already drawn
our atention to this by denoting it as
"u vicious system of farming," and
the only way around it, as I pointed
out at the time, is by plowing deeper
and cultivating the fallow less, but
putting it in better shape for accumulating moisture.
hi many places our sandy lonms
ore already becoming exhausted and
so devoid of humus that some of our
farmers say it does not pay to plow
them deeply.
Humus is a carbon compound, ami
when tlie oxygen of the air attacks it
it becomes carbon dioxide—tbe carbonic acid gas so deadly to human
life, so indispenaible to plant life.
In dry climates, when humus is at
or near thc surface, this combustion
can go on unimpeded; but in humid
climates it is much slower on account
of tlie water film around each particle
which protects it from the oxygen.
Therefore, it is plain that, in order
to save our humus, we must keep it
damp, keep it away from the atmosphere, bury it as deeply as possible.
This element of our soils is found
almost entirely on the surface, being
a product of the sod. and every atom
of it that finds its way into the atmosphere is a dead loss to the farmer.
Pure humus is said to be able to
hold 200 per cent, of water, whereas
some soils will not hold over 20 per
cent, without leaching.
Some farmers will contend that
deep plowing on their soils does not
bring results, nnd there is much truth
in this, for often their Inst chance to
raise a crop is to skim the surface
again and use up the last particle of
humus. But this, of course, is burning the candle at both ends. The
remedy is to plow deep at the start,
incorporate the surface humus with
10 inches of soil, and then if too thin
to raise fair crops plow under more
green material until the results are
Tbe most bandy crop for tbis work
is foil rye, because it can be raised
during the winter months and plowed
under when a foot high in time for
planting the regular crops. They say
in Germany that land that will not
respond to deep plowing is not agricultural soil, but where this is tbe
ease through lack of humus, it can be
remedied, for our soils are usually
rich in all the mineral elements, and
barnyard manure ond green crops will
supply tbe other. A soil that is he-
coming exhausted for want of humus
can be planted with alfalfa, which will
eventually replenish it; but in order
to obtain o stand, 8 to 10-inch plowing is necessary, and if the soil that
is turned up is poor nnd thin, a top
dressing of rotten manure of old corral dirt is tlie thing before drilling
the seed in. By this method I hove
raised alfalfa on a sand bar, and nfter
six yeors plowed it up and took off
o crop of oots, and then bock into
alfalfa again, this tune without manuring.
The hardest and most unpopular
work that we have ahead of us is to
convert the formers of the West to
deep plowing. It took England 40
yeors to do this, nnd Germany 49. In
the meantime the average production
of small grain increased from 11
bushels to 40 and 45, and potatoes in
the island of Jersey on land plowed
10 inches and fertilized with seaweed
for humus go from 000 to 800 bushels
per acre. In order to obtain n lease
on farming land in the above counties, the tenant hns to enter into a
contract to plow deep, rotate bis
crops, ond put back into the soil what
he takes out.
In this country, for tho accumulation of moisture and the conservation
of humus, deep plowing is absolutely
necessary, and at the same time remarkably profitable; and in the exceptional case, where the land is too
thin, It will pay a hundred-fold to
fertilize it until you bave a fairly rich
seed bed 10 inches deep.
From thc lighthouse nt Lobster
Cove Head, Bonne Bay, Newfoundland, Mrs. W. Young sends an ex-
j perience of Zam-Buk, which should
certainly act as a true beacon light,
guiding all sufferers from skin di.-
ge&se to u safe harbor of refuge.
I Mrs. Young says: "I suffered with
j eczema for seven years, and to my
Breot delight Zam-Buk lias cured me.
The disease started on my breast, and
spread until it extended over my
bock. The itching and burning—
especially when tlie affected parts
were warm—was terrible; and yet
when the eruption was scratched or
rubbed, it turned to bad sores, and
caused great pain. I went to a doctor and tried various prescriptions,
but seemed to get no benefit, so tried
another doctor. Again I got no relief, so tried a third doctor, nnd then
a fourth. Although they ill! did their
best for me 1 got no relief from my
"Seven years is a long time to
suffer, and I bod got used tn the
thought that I never would be cured
when I saw a report in 'The Family
Herald' telling how beneficial Zam
Buk was in cases of skin diseases. 1
thought there would be no harm in
giving tbis balm a fair trial, and
bought some.
"Well, from the use of the very
first box 1 saw Zuin-Buk was going
to do me good. I persevered with it,
and the improvement it worked in
my condition was really wonderful.
It eased the irritation, stopped the
pain, and the sores began to dry up
and disappear, In short. I found
Zam-Buk all that was claimed for it.
and within a very short time it worked a complete cure in my case."
Not only for eczema, but for ulcers,
abscesses, varicose veins, hnd leg,
poisoned wounds, cuts, cold sores,
chapped places, piles, ringworm,
children's eruptions, burns, scalds,
and nil skin injuries and diseases,
Zam-Buk will be found unequalled.

A   Germ   Disease   Which   is   Baffling
the Doctors and Alarming the
People Generally
It may*be said that doctors nre
only agreed on two points regarding
this much dreaded disease.
First, that it Is a germ disease and
second, like all germ diseases can
only be fought with pure, rich blood
Prevention is always the better wny
nnd that is why we arc always talking about the wisdom of keeping the
blood pure and rich and the nervei-
healthy and strong by using Dr
Chase's Nerve Food.
Rich, red blood i.s a deadly foe tt

of infantile paralysis, of colds, of
consumption or any othcr disease.
Don't let the blood get thin and

"Well, the morning after our wed-1

British national game of cricket. Except for n few London commuter, who
live there, the entire population depend.- for livelihood cn tlie manufacture of cricket balls. What distinguishes Hildenborough from every
other village in England is the "Hildenborough Club" and the "Village
Players," which have freed the village from that deadly dullness that is
characteristic ol a majority of small
Th« "Village Players of Ililden-
borough" are famous throughout
England, Many noted actors have
witnessed their acting. Among them
have been Sir Henry Irving. Sir
Squire and Lady Bancroft, Lady
I Beerbnhm Tree and Mr. and Mrs.
| Kendal aod others, all of whom hove
j declared themselves amazed at the
| histrionic talent displayed. There
were no women in the company at
llrst. Later on they participated as
the company grew capable of greater
efforts. So great now is its skill thut
the London daily newspapers of consequence always send their critics to
all first-night performances Yet
these workingmen are their own instructors, and bave never had the
assistance of either u profession a I
actor or stage manager. Some o'
them were never in 0 theatre in
their lives. The plays, every accessory and the music have tbeir origin
in the village.
The "Players" always devote the
six weeks before Christmas to re-
hearsols. Every evening is used,
Ou Sunday evenings knotty problem.-;
are discussed after the church service, which is held in the club theatre. The proceeds of the company's
public performance in the six weeks
following Christmas go a Ion.,' way
toward enabling the club to spend
large sums of money during the whole
of the yenr without much cnll upon
tbe scantily lined pockets of the villagers. There wns a time when many
of the villagers got drunk regularly
in order to keep themselves from remembering that there was nothing
else for them to do.
Every possible need of the community is intended to be embraced
by the Village Club. It is a night
school, a playroom for adults, a sick
benefit and burial society, a library,
reading room, common parlor, a mishap benevolent fund, an orchestral
society, debating society, cricket club,
football club, chess, checkers, quoits,
cycling, fishing and other clubs, a
bank, and a taxpayers' association-
all rolled into one. No villager has
been known to get intoxicated since
lhe club got hold of tbe place. Refreshments of all kinds are sold at
the clubhouse practically at cost
price. There are no paid servants.
Even the cleaning is done in turn by
volunteers on the weekly Cleanliness
The annual dues nre 5s. ($1.20).
All the villagers belong, women ua
well ns men. Tbe institution bas
nearly a thousand members.
All the members' savings in the
bonk are invested in loans to members, and the bank conducts a building society to enable members to
own their own bouses. The club is
the soul of the village. There is no
part of the village life in which it
does not participate, from the grow-
ing of the biggest potatoes and cabbages, nnd tbe handsomest roses,
down to the best batting averages at
cricket, and the longest throw with n
cricket bull, from the handsomest
baby of the year to the prettiest
home-made frock.
The orchestra started With two
fiddles. For a while afterward every
instrument was a «olo instrument.
Now there are weekly concerts by on
excellent balanced band, led by the
organist of the parish church.
The village schoolmaster was the
father of tbe club. He wrote the first
play and the organist composed the
music. The policeman painted the
scenery. Fcr many u night the first
rehearsals were something awful.
The men thought it was necesiary to
"act," ufid they could not. When at
