EMPIRE DAY
CELEBRATION
Large Dancing Pavilion to bo
Erected—Sport*. Concert
The celebration of Empire Day
in this city on Monday the 25th
will eclipse any previous efforts
made in that direction. The
various committees met in the
council chambers on Thursday
evening and reported, that there
ij already over #1000 subscribed
towards the days festivities.
Those who are in charge of
the sports are endeavouring
to make it a red letter day in the
history of Cumberland and with
that object in view have decided
to erect a 50 by 70 dancing
pavilion on the recreation grounds
Men are now at work getting the
play-ground in readiness.
In addition to the various
sports during the day, the Cumberland Gleemen have kindly
consented to give a concert at
the pavilion from 7 to 9 in the
evening. After the concert the
Cumberland Symphony Orchestra
of 15 pieces will supply the music
for a Grand Open Air Dance with
the surroundings brilliantly
illuminated with electric lights.
Tbe West Cumberland Conservative Band has been engaged
for the day. The Ladies Aid of
the Methodist Church will look
after the refreshments.
BAZAAR AND SUPPER
The Bazaar given by the
Ladies Aid of St. George's on
Tuesday, May 19 promises to be
a very pleasant social function,
as well as affording a splendid
opportunity to buy what you
need.
The stalls, in charge of prominent ladies, will carry the usual
line of plain sewing, especially
childrens' dresses, fancy work,
gentlemen's requisites. Candy
booths, ice-cream stalls, afternoon tea and fishing pond will
afford plenty of enjoyment.
The bazaar will be formally
opened at 2.30 p.m. by Mrs. Geo.
Clinton, who has kindly consented to declare the bazaar open.
It is only necessary to say that
the Ladies Aid are giving a supper to assure every one of a
splendid meal. Their suppers
are known by past experience, so
come prepared to have your
pleasant expectations fulfilled.
Supper at 5.30, Ticket" 50 cents,

SUDDEN DEATH OF
W.J.
DASTARDLY OUTRAGES
The Nanaimo Herald of Tuesday says.—A series of dastardly
outrages have been committed
during the past few days, which
following upon the attempted
murder of James Rennie and two
other workmen employed at the
Reserve Mine, gives ample proof
that some of the men on strike
are prepared to go to any length
in wreaking their cowardly vengeance upon anyone who has the
manhood to differ from their
views.
The latest'lawlessness reported
to the police comes from South
Wellington where arson has been
added to the list of crimes perpetrated during the last few days
At an early hour on Sunday
morning a vacant residence at
South Wellington owned by Sergeant Shirras of the Nanaimo City
Police force was set on Are, and
was saved from total destruction
only by the herculean efforts of a
volunteer brigrade. Yesterday
evening a residence owned by the
Canadian Collieries, and located
just south of the Railway station
was completely destroyed by fire
not a stick being left standing of
the residence which at one time
was the home of Mr. Faulds,
manager of the South Wellington
mines. This house was vacant also at the time of the Are so
there is no doubt both conflagrations were of incendiary origin. „
As a variation to the work of
destruction by fire, a number of
men lay in ambush near Brechin
Sunday night and stoned a provincial constable, the officer of
law being severely bruised, but
luckily not seriously injured. The
identity of the men could not be
learned for they made their escape in the darkness after making
their cowardly attack.
Mr. and Mrs. Edward Baldwin
left for Victoria on Wednesday
morning.
J. R. Lockard, general manager of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd. left for Victoria
on Thursday.
Mrs. James Ward, wife of the
chief of police of this city,
and son arrived by Saturday's
train. Mr. and Mrs. Ward are
now residing on Derwent Ave.
The Ladies Aid of St, George's
Presbyterian Church will hold a
grand bazaar and supper in the
Cumberland Hall on Tuesday the
19th.
Distinguished Mineralogist Dies
•t Ucluelet while Running
• Survey Line.
The Victoria Colonist of Sunday
reports as follows:
Vancouver Island has suffered
an irreparable loss and Victoria
is deprived of one of its foremost
pioneer citizens by the death
yesterday morning at Ucluelet
on the West Coast of "ancouver
Island, of Mr. W. J. Sutton, who
succumbed without premonitory
warning to a stroke of apoplexy.
A pioneer in Island developement
admittedly the greatest, authority
respecting the resources of this
part of the province, a mineralogist of large practical experience
and one of the most energetic
workers for all that had to do
with the advancement of Victoria
and the Island, the news of his
untimely demise came as a shock
to tiie whole community.
A Colonist correspondent
yesterday afternoon wired from
Ucluelet the following dispatch,
containing brief particulars of
the sad event.—
"W. J. Sutton dropped dead,
at 9 o'clock this morning, while
running a survey line for a road
in process of construction. He
and his party were at work at a
point a mile and a half back in
the bush. On news reaching here
a party, consisting of sixteen
men, including the life-saving
crew, hurried to the scene, and
the body was later conveyed here
An inquest was held at noon and
a verdict of death from apoplexy
returned. The body will be
conveyed to Victoria tomorrow
morning by special boat. Mr.
Sutton had extensive holdings in
this district and was universally
esteemed."
Mr. Sutton left for the coast
on Thursday, apparently in the
best of health.

UNION DAY
GOING AHEAD
Preparations for Great Industrial
Development—Townsite on
the Market.
Since some big ships were in to
bunker a little time ago there has
not been much activity at the
coaling wharf. The U. S. Revenue boat "Albatross" has just
bunkered and the "Qjadra"
Government light-house tender
has been in and a few small
crafts.
The E. & N. station is progressing, the platform being nearl**
finished and the roofing of the
freight shed is done and that of
the offices almost finished; The
electric light poles are in along
the branch road from the Island
Highway to the station and the
construction of this road is to be
begun at once, a very saisfactory
route having been decided on.
Interest is chiefly centred on
the placing of the Union Bay
town-site on the market. It has
been expected.for. some time that
an announcement of its being
placed on the market would be
made. There.-have been several
false alarms, so that people were
growing a little skeptical, and
the real announcement came
rather as a surprise. The promoters of the town-site are Boyd's,
Ltd. of Vancouver, and the Union
Bay Developement Co. is handling the proposition on Vancouver
Island and the neighboriug is
lands. We are told there is a big"
range of prices to suit all pockets
and all purposes, and the waterfront is offered at extremely
reasonable prices. No reservations
whatever are being made except
as regards part of the water-front
which portion will be held at an
extremely low figure for the
benefit of bona fide manufacturers who are expected to take
advantage of these cheap sites,
close rail and deep water connections, cheap fuel and lumber
and electric power to establish
themselves in Union Bay.
There should soon be considerable activity at Union Bay as we
hear that some businesses and
stores are opening there soon,
and some new streets graded and
ballasted are to be opened to
form the centre of the business
quarter. Water-front, we hear,
is already in demand for industrial and residential purposes, and
if all goes as well as at present
promises, by the time the railway
is in operation the foundation of
the town-site's businesses should
be securely laid. Possibly some
of Cumberland's enterprising
tradespeople will see in Union an
opportunity to extend, There are
many ideal sites for residence
both along the water-front and
on the rise overlooking the sound,

morning of Saturday—not bo very early
in the morning, hut well before tlie cr-
tlinary man's luncheon hour—a friend
of bill's met un acquaintance strolling
along. Do you remember tho fellow
who would not curry a latchkey because it spoiled tho set of his clothes?
Well, it was that fellow.

Worry Doea Kill
Modern science has brought to light
nothing more curiously Interesting
than that worry will kill. Mora remarkable still it has been able to determine from recent dlscoverlea Just
bow worry does kill. It Is believed by
many scientists who have followed
carefully the growth of the science
ot brain diseases .bat scores of the
deaths set down to other causes are
due to worry, and that alone. This
theory is a slmplo cue, so simple that
anyone can readily understand IL
Briefly put, it amounts to this:
Worry injures beyond repair certain
cells of the brain, and the brain being
tho nutritive centre of the body, the
other organs become gradually Injured, and when some diseases of
these organs arise, or a combination
of them, deal!; finally ensues.
Thus worry kills. Insidiously, like
many other diseases, lt creeps npon
the brain in tho form of a single constant, never lost Idea, nnd as a dropping ot water over a period of years
will wear a groove in the stone so
does worry rradually, imperceptibly
and no less surely destroy the brain
cells that load all tho rest, which are,
so to speak, the command and motion.

Victims Can Cure Themselves With Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills
During Uio month of March people
who arc afflicted with rheumatism begin to have unpleasant reminders of
their trouble. The weather Is changeable—balmy and springlike one day.
cold, raw and piercing the next. It
is such sudden changes of weather that
start tho pangs and tortures of rheumatism, lumbago and sciatica going.
But it must be borue in mind that although weather conditions start tho
pains, tlie trouble Is rooted in the
blood, and can only bo cured through
the blood. AH the liniments and lotions in the world can't cur rheumatism, flubbing may seem to ease tlie
paiu while you are ruhbiag, but there
its value etuis. Only by treating tho
disease through tho blood can you cure
rheumatism. That is why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured bo many
thousands of cases of this trouble. Tho
new, rich blood theso pills actually
make drive*: out tho poisonous acid
and rheumatism, lumbago and kindred
troubles are banished. Among thc
many sufferers from rheumatism
cured by this method is Mr. It. J. Sinclair, of Gosen, N.S*. who says:
"About two years ago I war, laij up
with rheumatism. Fo two months I
could not walk and bad to stay In au
Invalid's chair. My feet vere badly
swollen and my arms seemed to be
paralyzed. 1 had been using doctor's
medicine for a long tint.-* but It did
not seem to help me. and tho doctor
Dually told tne that the only thing that
would cure mo would be a change of
climate. At this time I decided to
give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial
and got a supply. After I had taken
them for a while I found they wero
helping me, nnd 1 got a further supply, and they completely cured me,
and I have not been, cic": cno day
since. 1 strongly recommend Dr.
Williams" Pink Pills for this trouble."

An Interview With Ban Johnson, Prealdent American Baseball League
V/hen I pnt the question, frankly I
had no suspicion of what it wonld
bring. For an hour. Ban Johnson, the
pink-faced president of the American
Baseball League, had smiled under my
fusillade of interrogation marks. We
had approached the national game
from the nnglea of business, psychology, and sport It was in a lull that
I asked, "And "what of baseball, not
as a spot*t, but as a profession? What
are the requisites to success demanded of the young man who would make
it a matter oOrettt. and butter, a career?
For a moment Mr. Johnson was silent He wns taking the query seriously. With his lirst words, I leaned forward with renewr * attention.
On tho whole, he said slowly, I
should Bay that by far tho-fnnln element of success In professional baseball is cleanliness. No matter what
a player's other qualifications may be,
tlio llnal analys' Is always thc same.
Without the factor of right living, any
measure of success on tho diamond
Is impossible. Speed, Initiative, tho
ability to think fast, aud hit bard,
steadiness, without somo of those!
qualities, of course, no yottn.; jna: can
bo a great ball player. But they all
loso their value without a sound
foundation tf clean habits. ln no
other Hold of life do Daws show quicker. A young player may bat in the
.300 class for n season, and landon)
may hail him as a second Cobb. Let
him begin to patronize the salocn.J
and spend liis leisure hours before a
bat* nnd ho drops liko a spent roc tot
Whiskey nerves, and beer-wenkonsil
muscles ate spotted on the lastant on
thc diamond. Again a young man
may leap into prominence as a base*
runner. He is called a phenomenon,
and his speed brings him e. big offer.
Suppose he drifts into the cigarette
habit. Suddenly he is conscious of n
palpitating heart, and shortened
breath, Thc hall beats him out at
first. No matter how high the star
of the diamond may climb, lie must
build on tlto foundation of a clean life.
Tliis is one reason why I am a strong
advocate of the Young Me:.'s Christ
ian Association. It points a message
that the young ball pinner needs. Th.
number of hall players who are Y.M.C.
A. men is surprising."
Let us approach the subject of cleanliness iu baseball from another angle.
A fixed baseball game would be commercially suicidal, ln the first place
the fact would be bound to creep to tho
public. You would not he dealing
witli one man or two men, but twenty
men, or maybe more. Each player
would have to share the secret, not to
mention possible substitutes, and the
umpires. A game could not be adjusted in advance and tho fact kept concealed—no matter how it might bo desired. And every player, be he a ton
notcber In a majo.* league or ar apprentice in i. bush league knows thnt
once a proo." ol" crookedness in baseball is established, the game Is killed,
just as horac-rachg and prize-fighting
were killed. The cry of a square deal
is time-worn. Hut the business man
knows, whether lie deals in calicos or
ball games, .bat his customers demand
It. And baseball is eeseutially a business proposition.
Sixteen ltiillior people .ice American
baseball games each season. The expenses of a major league will run to
a million dollars in one year. Baseball
first of oil is a big business Investment.
Tlie men who put up this million dollar expenditure are not going to jeon-
nrdlze lighllv Iheir chances of getting
it back. On tlie fnce of it, baseball
must be essentially honest, essentially
wholesome, essentially stimulating or
It would be a flat, business and sporting
failure. And it is because of all these
fact3 that it is typically American,
lt represents the call of a rugged, optimistic sport, played on thu level.
-It represents,* too, the call of thc
out-of-doors. And I 'have always
thought that.trickery, deceit nro always less possible In the open. Baseball is a game of the sunlight and
fresh air. Antl sunlight and t*'* . air
kill unwholesomeriess. Here we have
both another argument, for its morality
and another explanation for its appeal. Baseball has created an atmosphere of its own. This iB an atmosphere of undiluted ozone. Men are
called to it because it is pure. The
life ot baseball depends on eliminating the slightest suggestion ot im-
purity, or thc very qualities which

The Trick of Ski Jumping
Thc art of ski jumping is not so easy
as It looks before trying, nor so hard
to loam as it might appear nftor the
lirst al tempt. At the start o;* tako off.
come down as though you were coasting on the ski. then at tho moment of
the takeoff bend the body well forward
from the hips and throw as much of
the weight as possible Into tlio .knees.
As you leave the edge of the Jump
straighten quickly at the hips and secure as much as possible tho effect* of
jumping straight out Into tho air.
While in the air hold the arms as still
as possible In the position lhat kest
preserves the  balance, keep the ski
I points' slightly down, as near as possi-
hie parallel with the slope of the hill.
I The body should be perpendicular to
| the sjope and the skis kept well together.   On landing advance one ski as far
' us possible without upsottiing, bending
!liie knee of the leg that ls advanced.
I Keep "llie skis together and parallel.
| The rest is practice and more practice.

"Did you see it go pnst?" shrilled
Hiss Duccy from her bedroom wln-
iow.
"Ves, without a sound. My, H gave
fee such a start!" returned Mrs.
,Wcems from her bedroom window
Beit door.   "Whatever can lt be?"
"I don't know. Don't sect* natural,
•whatever lt Is, streaking past here
•very night for a week without a
•Ound, going up tlto street and never
coining back ngnlu. Wbo ever saw a
■Botuivnr behoving like that? I never
slid till a week ago."
"a\'o moro did I."      ,
•Shall you tell Mr. Wcems?"
•Of course, but he won't believe a
Rrord of It," sold that skeptic's fat
Kl fo as she closed her window antl retired for the night.
Finally Miss Duccy went to bed, determining to arise early and trnco the
black automobile to its lair wherever
H might bo.
It wos shortly after daylight when
lllss Duccy swallowed a hasty breakfast and marched tip Block atreet.
Block street was rightly named, for,
although ouce It had been a small
thoroughfare lu the heart of the village, when the railroad had built a
atone viaduct aud the trains raced
through tho place over the heads of
the distracted populace a great stone
wall had blocked tbe street a tew
hundred, feet beyond the boundary
Bno of Nettle Dueey's land.
"Drat the blocking!" muttered Miss
Dneey ns she hurried through her
•rchard toward the railroad embank.
•Bent.
"Drat the automobile!" she added in
a little while as sbe stood at the grass
grown end of the street, where there
was not the faintest sign of wheel
marks. "I'd llko to seo one of thero
ilty detectives down here. I'll bel
he'd be stumped! Good laud! I don't
believe I'll ever get out of this hole.
I'll not be nhlo to pay off thc mortgage
now that ray boarders have all left,
anil what shall I doV"
Miss Duccy forgot all about the
black automobile ns she tramped back
to the house. Absorbed In ber own
troubles, sho cored not what became
IT WalS THE BIDDEN* MOT.
•f the mysterious machine. She did
not even attempt to pursue the white
hen that had stolen a nest somewhere
toward tbe railroad, nt tho very edge
of tho orchard, among a heap of uld,
broken down wagons and the shed
tbat crumbled on top of them years
and years before.
"Likely ns not the drolled critter's
laying eggs on,tho railroad trnck and
the trains nre breaking 'cm, and eggs
UO cents n dozen! If I don't bnve the
worst luck!" groaned Miss Duccy pessimistically.
Mrs. Wooms bustled In wllh a New
Tork paper of the day before.
"I brought this over, Nettle; thought
you'd like to seo tt. Did you see the
car come back?" sbe asked eagerly.
Miss Ducey shook her bend.
"Not a sign of It   Did you tell Mr.
Wcems?"
'    "Yes; os soon ns ho came In from
lodge meeting.   Wbat do yon suppuso
be said, Nettle?
"Ho just laughed and snld If we
wlmmen didn't drink so much strong
tea nt night we wouldn't be Imagining
such things."
Mrs. Weems exchanged indignant
glances wltb ber friend nnd then departed to prepare dinner for her lord
and master.
Nettle Duccy, who had no lord and
master save tho mortgago ou tbe
bouse-and she would bavo added tb*
railroad for good measure, so strongly
did she bate lt-plcked up tbo newspaper and read It from the scrlre head
on tbs front page to the little advertisement of Llndcrholm's cough balm
In the lower rlgbt band corner of tbs
last page.
And rending so conscientiously
brought reward to Nettle Ducey. although sht did not" dream of It when
■be Kid ■ little item of newe Just
above the cough balm advertisement;
"A large reward bas been offered by
Buffam s. jlggs, the Jewelers, for ths
discovery of tbe valuables stolen from
tbeir shop lost week. Tbere ls a
quantity of solid sllvervare, gems
worth many thousands of dollars, and
thc reward of $10,000 for the apprehension of the thieves and tbe recovery of the stolen property should nt-
trust the attention of all detectives,
amateur and professional, lt ls believed that the job was accomplished
with tho old of a motorcar."
"Ten thousand dollars reword!"
groaned Miss Duccy, tucking the paper away. "Ono thousand dollars
would be a whole lot to me. Wish I
lived whero things were going on.
Nothing ever happens at tbe end of a
blind street I declare, if tbat whlto
hen ain't cackling again!"
She tied a veil over her sandy hair
and darted out to thc orchard and beyond tho fruit trees to a little grove ot
young locusts that bad grown up around
tbo heap ot broken down wagons.
Miss Ducey poked nround ln the
rank grass, now flattened ln n peculiar
way. Certainly thoso were the marks'
of wheels.
How did they come there? Were
tbey tbo tracks of tbe black automobile? Nettle Ducey ran tn and fro
like a hound on the scent, nnd In fifteen minutes she had discovered the
mystery of the motorcar that disappeared at tbe end of Block street every night.
From Block street tbe machine turned Into tbe lot beyond bet* orchard, and
somo one must have been tbcre to carefully obliterate all traces of Its passing. Through tho lot lt had gone to
tbe farthest confines. A fence rail bail
been lowered and replaced, nnd. lo, tha
machine had sped through another va-
ennt lot Into a street thut ran parallel
with Block street and so disappeared.
"Ba!" cried Miss Ducey, Just like a
great detective who has made a marvelous discovery. Then she ndtled In a
puzzled tone, "But wbat In time does
any man want to cut such capers for?"
After awhile, (lulling this question
unanswered, Miss Ducey went bock to
Ihe heap ot old wagons nnd nosed
around in search of the white hen's
stolen nest She crept down on all
fours ond Jeopardized life nnd limb
among tbo woatbe**' worn vehicles, but
there was no sign t   t he hen's nest.
Miss Duccy sot tlown on tho grass
under her father's old buggy nud
rested.
"I'll have n spell of rheumntlz after
this!" she groaned, bowing her bead iu
her hands.
Presently sho lifted her head and
looked up at the bottom of the box
body of tbe old buggy uuder which she
sat. Her gaze became fined on something bright that waa wedged In a
crack. She put up a hand nut! luilled,
and down Into her lap there tumbled a
silver spoon—a solid sliver teaspoon!
Nettle Ducey scrambled out from under the buggy and peered tinder tho
lifted lid of tho box. * In order, to do
this she hnd to raise tbe decaying hood
of the vehicle.
In the box was wbat looked like a
pile of dirty canvas. Nettie Ducey Investigated and discovered that they
were bags Oiled with solid silverware,
and a small leather bag contained
Jewelry hastily huddled together.
It was tho hidden loot of thieves!
What thieves? Why. the ones she
bad read about ln the paper, of course!
Ten thousand dollars reward! Almost
any of ber modest dreams might come
true—she might take a trip to Washington some day!
Nettle Duccy never ran so fast In nil
her llfo as she did when she left tho
rubbish pile in the lot behind tbe orchard.
At last sbe reached the constable's
ollice, whero she poured out her marvelous tale, exhibited tbe newspaper
and before witnesses laid claim to Hie
reward. Tho constable telephoned to
tbo city police, and then lie swore iu
a score of deputies.
Constable Blglcy, accompanied by
Nettle Ducey and trailed by twenty
deputies nil armed to the teeth, switrni*
ed tip Block street, through Nettle's
orchard to tbe rubbish pile.
Aud wben the constable and Ills men
hud brought out tho missing stuff nnd
Identified It beyond ijouht as tbnt belonging to Iluffnm & .llggs Miss Ducey told them the story of tbo motor
ghost and showed them tho mysterious
trucks across tho lots lo the parallel
street, establishing beyond n doubt
thnt the block cur wns the vehicle ut
tho thieves and that the cleverness of
tho observing spinster hnd resulted In
her finding the billing pluce of the
thieves.
Thc city police arrived by nn afternoon train, nnd at nlgbt, when the motor ghosts essayed another mysterious
flight through Block street, tbey met a
warm welcome.
It was n bnppy day when Nettle Du-
cey met Messrs. Utilnm & Jlggs in
tbelr palatial ofllccs and received (he
promised reword. Thero wns monpy
enough to moke her comfortable tbo
rest of her llfo and to help ninny of
her relatives nud friends, nnd tbnt wos
what Miss Ducey hud always wanted
to do, ouly she couldn't afford It Sho
didn't sell thc cottage after o!l, but sho
rented It and went tu llvo lu a quieter
street.
When Miss Duccy took tho trip te*
Washington Mrs. Weems ond her litis-
band went along ns her guests, nnd It
Is n matter of Interest to note that Mr.
Weems handsomely apologized fnr his
remarks concerning "too drinking
wtinmln," "because," be added suavely, "If you nnd Annie hadn't Indulged
In strong tea nnd sat up lute nt night
yon would never havo discovered thnt
tbere motor ghost, and we wouldn't ba
sitting here now."
And Miss Ducey and her friend were
so happy that they didn't care n bit because Mr. Weems bad tbe last word
attar ilL
PATENT CRANKS.
They Give tbo Clerks a Merry Time
With Their Devices.
Surely there Is no more extraordinary array, ot-"freaks" to ba found
anywhere In the country than may
be mot with by anyone who searches
through the Patent Office ln London!
Such a man will be perfectly astounded at tha Immense number of cranks
there muat he ln the land; men and
women—chiefly tbe former, of course
—who spend time, trouble, and money ln putting forward so-called inventions which are really nothing mora
than absolute freaks; Ideals and models of no good to anybody whatever
for any practical purpose in life! Indeed, the Patent Office might well bs
termed "The Asylum for Idiotic Ideas
and Models!"
Aa showing how ling and how similarly the most extravagant notions
bare obsessed certain ! inds of folk
In connection with this patent busl
nesa, we may Just mention that the
office had not been In vogue. In tha
reign of King James I., more than a
week or two, when one agricultural
gentleman sent word to lt that he
wished to have "a patent ior making
•rops grow without plowing the soil
by horses and plow, as ho had learned
how to plow fields otherwise; and al*
so poasessed tbe secret of making
crops grow With tremendous fertility
without trouble!" When called on to
explain this very valuable process,
however, the men could really tell
nothing at all! He was a crank, purs
and simple — the first of thousands
who have pestered the Patent Of*
flco since that time.
Another amusing thing for which a
..latent was sought was as follows.
Some naturalist had noticed that bees
are often robbed of their honey at
night by tbe bee-moth, while they
themselves are dormant. To provide
against this he put in a specification
and plans showing how the hives
should have a, small shutter before
the hole for Ingress and egresu; how
this shutter might be connected by
cords with the perches of hens roosting some shed near; how the hens
would retire to their perches when
the bees went Inside the hives for
the night; bow the hens, by this,
would depress the perches, which
would move the cord, and thus close
the shutters! When morning came,
and the bena flew down, of course
the shutters were opened again, and
tbo bees began operations once
more! Think of the glorious strata*
gem!
You never know what will come
Into the Patent Office any day. To be
a clerk tbere must be aa good as be*
Ing at a pantomime, and tten Ind*
nltely moro amusing. One man trav*
ellng on a northern railway had pull*
ed the communication-cord in vain,
so far as making tho driver feel It
was concerned. So he forthwith set
his brains to work aud evolved a
"patent" device wblch should com
pel the driver to take notice of such a
tblng. Ills plans, as sent to tho office,
showed an enormous catapult fixed
on the top of tho guards' van, which
when the cord /as pulled by a passenger, should throw stones at the
driver on the engine till he stopped
the train! I need hardly say that no
railway company has, as yet, taken up
tbat patent and carried its plans Into
effect.    Nice for the driver, eh '
When one portion of England was,
two or three decades ago, troubled
with a slight earthquake, there came
along tbo man jjlth the hour — as
usual) This worthy inventor was
greatly perturbed lest bis own house
should fall ln such a catastrophe as
an English earthquake. And to prevent the danger be put ln for a patent for a device lie had, whereDy nil
houses, etc., for the future should be
build on small rollers or wheels, bo
that when any selsmatlc disturbance
occurred they would simply roll or
move about freely and unhurt, Instead of having their foundations upset and endangered!

Mathews1 Story ot the Socrates of the
Shambles.
The eminent actor, Mr. Mathews,
father of Sir Charles Mathews, In one
of his "At Homes," related a story
of a butcher he dealt with, and who
came to be known throughout the
town as "the historical butcher."
This man was very ostentatious of
his affected knowledge of the "History of England," a book be was
constantly reading from morning to
night, and whlcb he so much admired that he never served a customer
but he related a part ot the subject
he had been reading in tbe course of
the day. You will suppose a customer to be standing tbere, nud a friend
seated with him behind the counter
here, whlcb will account for the following curious* Jumble;—
"What d'ye buy? What d'ye buy?
Well, how aro you? How do you do?
I am wery glad to see you. How are
all the family? This is wery kind to
call ln tbis here way. I've been reading, as usual, all this here blessed
morning that favorite book ot mine,
'Hume's History ln En.-Utd.' What
a book that Is! How hlnslruetlve and
hentcrtalnlng Hume's History in
England' la — tenpetu*) a pound,
ma'am. I've*»been readln** fie fourth

Queen Mary—make nice Scotch col-
lops, ma'am.
"Sir Isaac Newton was a great
man; he knew all about tbe Pole-axe
of the fixct stars, and bow long It
would take a man to go ln a taxed
cart to the moon. Quceu Elizabeth
vent to St. Paul's on a pillion—that
saddle of mutton's just your weight,
ma'am. I've been reading—dear me!
—I've been reading 'King Charles';
you've heard of him, hain't you? Hid
himself ln St. James' Park ever since.
No, lt warn't St. James' Park, war It?
However, I know It was in somo park.
But the wicked rascals caught him
and cut off his head—malte a capital
hash with parsley garnish, ma'am.
Cardinal Wulsey's father was a but-
c'lcr; so am I. There's a curious coincidence, ain't it!
"And Henry VIII. married Queen
Elizabeth. No. he didn't though, for
she war his mother. No, that couldn't be; sbe warn't his mother, but
she war some relation. King Henry
tho Eighth—that's a nice fat bit,
m-a'am; take It wl' you?"
That was the learned oration that
Issued almost dally from this Socrates
of the shambles, and drew a pretty
numerous lot of customers to bis
shop.
Fat In the Fire Brigade.
Some time ago fat firemen in thi
London tire brigade was told that
they must reduce their weight or resign. The chief theory was thnt firemen should not be fat, because that
means loss of the agility necessary
for their business. The firemen
pointed out that thero were not fires
enough to keep them In strict training, and lhat most of their time was
spent waiting on alarms and that
llieir enforced idleness to men of
their perfect health meant corpulence. Tho London County Council,
however, recognizing that fatness wos
not the men's fault but their mlatfor-
tune, has now decided *o provide it
gymnasium at every fire station, oo
th t tho men when waiting for fires
can tako exerclso that will prevent
them from larding the lean earth as
they run.
But even for a flrc-i.-.n dismissed
for fatness there ls a world elsewhere
F**om nnothor source comes the news
that a firm of London publishers are
e" missing their tbln travelers; as un
suitable for commercial traveling.
An exchange might be effected here,
and thus another proof would jc furnished of the fluidity of labor.
Origin of Trial By Jnry.
A trial by Jury Is an occurrenco of
which we road every day, but how
many of our readers know tbe origin
of such a trial?
The origin of trial by Jnry Is very
obscure. All that Is known for certain ts tbat from the earliest limes
tlu Anglo-Saxons and other Germanic
tribes showed a decided preferenr
for the number twelve whon forming
a comnrittee to determine upon the
guilt or Innocence of a person.
Tho legnl existence of jurors was
tlrst recorded under tbo Plantagcnets.
During tho reign of Queen Ellzabet.
a Jury which could not a-n*ee was
sent to prison, and also at the same
period a banquet was generally given
lo lie jury by lho successful litigant.
This latter fact naturally mado th-
Jurymen anxious to provo the Innocence of Heir victim, especially when
tie happoned to bo wealthy.
An liv.-hnngo of Courtesies.
An amusing Incident occurred at
Boylo Quarter Sessions, a few days
ago. A witness In a case, a Mrs. Rock,
was told by Judgo Wakcly, tbat she
was "a flnc-looklng old woman." "Do
you know," nbo rejoined, "what I
sold to myself when I came Into
court?" "No," sold his honor.
Well," sbo wont on, "I said to myself you are tbo finest looking man
I ever saw." "You make mc blush,"
expostulated his honor, amidst loud
laughter, and Mrs. Hock went on to
say nhe was seventy-five years of age,
and never saw a judge before.

development of Robert Burns to become generally known. A writer tn
The London Sphere refers almost timorously to t*fm fact that In Ihe nineteenth century, tn the year that Jean
Amour, Burns' widow, died, tbo
family of Robert Burns gave their
consent to having a cast made of the
skull of the poet, dead tbirty--ight
years previously. The science «e>
phrenology had just tben been interesting Scotch physicians, and a paper
was drawn up containing the results
ot the phrenological ixamination of
Burns' skull, wltb drawings ot the
cast, lt is these memorials of the
poet that .Mr. Arthur Keith now examines, beginning wllh some generalizations about lhe present method of
d'awlng run luslrns from physiological aspects, and using a tono almost
deprecatory In fear that the sensibilities ot Burns' worshippers will be
hurt by what may be regarded as an
unrevorcnllal way of treating the
poet'* physical remains:
"Most of us have ' it l-lth ln the
sl -o of bead or expanse of brow as an
Index of mental ability; our specula
tlon along such lines have been upset
by our daily experience. We place
our trust rather In the eye, the
mouth, the expression, the manner ln
whicli the countenance lights up,
Burns had an eye. 'I never saw such
another eye in a human head,' said
Sir Walter Scott. Had Sir Walter
shared Dr. George Combe's predilection for, the study of heads I am
quite certain he would have discovered tbat the poet'a brain was quite
as remarkable as his eye. In recent
years Miss Lee and Prof. Pearson
have Invented a fairly accurate method of calculating the size of the brail
from the dimensions- of the skull.
Their method Indicates that Burns
had a brain measuring 1,720 cubic
cm.—1,500 cm. being tne else of
brain for an average Scotsman. Tbe
great size of the head gives a key-to
the remark made by Sir Walter
Scott, viz., 'His countenance was
more massive than lt looks In any of
his portraits.' . . .
"Unfortunately the cast ef the
skull loaves off at the lower margin
of the eye-sockets, hence I am unable
to give any exact measurements relating to tbe lower part of the face.
The width of the face, however, one
can state definitely. The widest pari
ot the face, taken just below the eye-
socket?, measures 134 mm., fully a
quarter ot an Inch beyond the width
of thc average man's face. Yet the
cheek bones, as may be seen from
tho various portraits as from the
s'-ull cast, wero neither high nor
prominent; the greatest width of the
face lay well behind tho eye sockets.
Anatomists do not Include thc fore-
Wad In measuring the length of the
faco, because Its upper limit Is hard
to define; they measure from the root
of tbe nose to tho lower margin ol
tho chin. The well-developed average
man has a faco length of 120 mm.
From the various portraits I Intel
that the poet's face was of average
length, about 120 mm., but his face
was above the average width. When,
however, a face of rather more tban
normal dimension Is painted »i pari
of a head of altogether abnormal dimensions it appears dwarfed; hence
Sir Walter Scott's lemark that artists had not done justice to the mas*
slveness of Burns' 'eatures."
Radium Mines In England.
England may yet prove to be the
richest producer of radium ore ln the
world.
Pitchblende was discovered ever so
long ago In the Tromwltb tin mine,
Cornwall, but It is only quite lately
that one ot England's most eminent
scientists, Sir William Ramsey, and
hla assistant chemlrt, Mr. White-
house, have really got down to work
there. Now radium ls being turned
out In a dingy back street ln Lime-
house, London. It Is valued at $3,-
750,000 an ounce.
It Is anticipated that at tbe end
of March an ontput of something like
4,000 milligrams a year, valued at
$80 a milligram, will bo placed upon
tho market.
Tho mine may be the greatest
source of pitchblende In tho world
and within a stone's throw of It Is
another similar mine worked by a
French company. Other mines aro
thought to exist ln the middle and
west of England.
Tlio Boy Witness.
Mr. F. E. Smith, the Unionist
M.P. and lawyer, was engaged lu a
county case, and ono c* tbo witnesses
was a little chap of eight who had
lo glvo evidence on behalf o hla father. The child appeared in a hat that
almost hit* his face, bis trousers so
big that tbo knees were at his ankles,
and In a coat that swept the floor.
His appearanco was so grotesque lhat
th court was dissolved tn laughter.
The Judge, as soon as he could control his amusement, asked tbe little
fellow why he bad appeared In Buch
garb. Ho fished In his pocket for a
moment, and then produced tho summons, and with a gravo look of concern pointed out tho words, "To appear In his father's suit."

SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1914.
would have suffered; and so in all probability would Ontario,
where a subsidiary company has received guarantees from
the provincial government aggregating nearly 8 millions.
The Dominion guarantees for the Canadian Northern
proper, and for some of the subsidiary lines amount to about
50 millions. Of this sum a large proportion consists of
guarantees granted by the Liberal administration. As late
as 1911, its last year of office, that government guaranteed
35 million dollars for one subsidiary line, whilst in 1908 it
guaranteed 8 millions for the Canadian Northern proper, and
9 millions in 1903. Yet for these large sums the consideration which Sir Wilfrid Laurier received from the company
was scarcely worth mentioning.
Here, again, the collapse of the road would have involved
the Dominion in much confusion, and, perhaps, in the end
heavy loss. In any event, the shock to the credit of Canada
would have been nothing short of a national disaster, especially at a time like this.
Government Guarantee to Canadian
Northern a Good Bargain.
No one looking at the matter without prejudice will say
that when the Canadian Northern was driven to apply for
assistance to the Borden Government the assistance should
have been refused, and the line, inits unfinished state, forced
as a derelect into bankruptcy. It was one of the sad legacies
bequeathed by the Laurier administration, and Mr. Borden
has been obliged, in the interests of the Dominion, for the
public credit is at stake, to do what he can to rescue it from
destruction.
Thirty years ago the administration of Sir John Mac*
donald had te go to the aid of the Canadian Pacific, which
could not raise the funds necessary to complete it because
of the depressed condition of the money market.    Agood
arrangement, both for the government and for the country,
was made, and, although the Liberals condemned it, the
loan, which was repaid, enabled the company to finish the
line from end to end much sooner than had been expected
greatly to the advantage of the West, which immediately
began to fill up.
It is safe to say that all who study without bias the
arrangement which Mr. Borden has brought down for the
relief of the Canadian Northern will agree that, taking
everything into account, it is an excellent one in every
respect, at any rate for the country.
Briefly, the government guarantees tlie bonds of the
company to the extent of 45 million dollars.   In return there
will be a consolidation of the thirty odd companies which
make up the Canadian Northern system, including railway
and steamship lines, express, terminal and telegraph companies., and all other interests of whatever kind; the capital
stock of the whole corjpern has been reduced from 145
million to 100 million, of which the government will receive
outright 40 million, inclusive of 7 million received last year.
This is the immediate compensation.
Moreover, the government is further protected by a
mortgage on the entire assets of the company, and will
supervise the proceeds of the guaranteed securities in order
that they may be properly applied to the completion and
improvement of the system. Should the company default
either in respect to the securities that are guaranteed, or for
any other reason, the government has power forthwith to
take over the road as the absolute property of the Dominion,
subject only to the bonded indebtedness.
These are the principal features of the arrangement,
which, all things considered, is a remarkably good one for
Canada, Mackenzie, Mann, and Co., Ltd,, and Mackenzie
and Mann individually have agreed to release all their claims
against the Canadian Northern for profits on consii uction,
and so forth, and a government director will be placed upon
tlie board, with the view of further protecting the country's
interests.
It would have been a grave business for Canada had the
road, now nearing completion, been abandoned to its creditors. Saying nothing of the large amount of British and
French capital that would have been lost, it would have been
unable to pay the huge sums it owes to Canadians, while
the progress of the West would have been seriously retarded.
British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan have quite
recently guaranteed the bonds of subsidiary companies of
the Canadian Northern to an enormous amount. British
Columbia has guaranteed bonds belonging to them to the
extent of over 40 million dollars, Saskatchewan to the extent
of over 20 million dollars, while Alberta has guaranteed
bonds covering over 2,000 miles of railway. Many of these
subsidiary lines have not yet been started, but a considerable milage has been built and the bonds sold.
Had the parent company been left to die a lingering statesman of them all.   No wonder Joe's memory lingers
death there can be little doubt that the three provinces!along the canal'ike a fragrant odor.
Keeping Out of
the Ruts
The blood of a business which advertises
regularly runs faster than the blood of a
business which rarely or never opens its
mouth.
Men who get in ruts grow to like ruts. There
is a certain comfort and contentment in
routine—which word is very close to
"rutine."
Advertising compels the advertiser to best r
himself-and since he advertises to YOU,
since he wants your favor and custom, you
can be pretty sure that he is doing his best
to deserve your favor and custom.
A WOED TO THE  PUBLIC
Give your custom to those who solicit it-who
tell you they want it; who tell you what they
are doing in your interests. Encourage those
who serve you best and most.

COURTENAY, B. C.
An Ardent Liberal.
A private letter from a Peterborough Liberal about the
suspension of Joseph McClellan, the superintendent of the
Trent Canal, has found its way into print. The writer says
that although the Tory government at Ottawa "has put Joe
out of business," Joe is still "very popular with Liberals of
all classes throughout Central Ontario."
As far as the evidence goes, there never was a truer
Liberal than Joseph. Acting apparently on the principle
that it is immoral to be in advance of the morality of one's
party, he made havoc of all the Government funds that
came his way, placing them in his private account at the
bank and otherwise treating them precisely as if they had
been his ov* n. linn. J. R. Stratton, Dominion M.P. when
Joe was appointed, told him Ihere ought to be an election
fund of five to seven thousand dollars a year from the canal,
and Joe says he "proceeded on that basis."
Apart from the large sums supplied to the party chest,
if any Liberal of high or low degree stood in need of fresh
air and plenty of whiskey, Joe welcomed him on board the
government steamer "Bessie Butler," and took him and his
family for a voyage at the public expense. The food and
wet groceries were paid for by putting the hotel keeper who
supplied them on the pay list of the canal as a day labourer;
but Joe was no respecter of persons, and in addition to hotel
men of the Liberal persuasion, florists, doctors, grocers,
dentists, lawyers, druggists, photographers, with a crowd of
persons of no particular occupation, but known to be
uncompromising champions of Liberalism, were likewise
paid their $1.75 per day for weeks and months at a time on
account of services rendered or goods furnished to Joseph
and the brethren.
These people pocketed the money every pay-day, and,
we may be sure, occasionally passed resolutions declaring
that, next to Sir Wilfrid, their Uncls Joe was the noblest

Tlio tragedy ne might havi avoided,
but the moment had passed—he was
now helpless.
* And through tho twilight and the
storm there came hurtling towards him
the Hgure of another man. He strode
wildly along, sometimes breaking into a run; it was as if ho were trying to
escape some gruesome tragflly. The
wind beat and buffeted him; it had
torn off ills hat and his hair had blown
on end as if standing erect with fear.
The two men almost cannoned Into
one another and each stoppoj witb an
oath.

a little while.
"So you think I'm tired of you,"
Hetherington asked presently.
"Haven't you threatened to leave
me, to go back to South America?"
"Oh, yes. 1 forgot tbat. I warned
you that I've an atrocious memory."

hold of Saluzo, and turning caught him

CHAPTER XXIV
Lady Hetherlngton sat alone by the
beside of her husband. She had Insisted on watching him and taking the
placo of the nurse. So far .she had
obeyed Instructions
"Tho patient must not be allowed
to talk; he must be kept perfectly
quiet and fro from excitement."
And so she had not spoken to him,
or no more than a few conventional
words. And he for the most part lay
on his back, his eyes closed almost
as if be wero asleep. But whenever
Carmen looked at him sbe knew that

Y'ou! whnt are you doing here? Saluzo held the surgeon tightly. Listen
—I will tell you. I came here flrst at
Sir Georgo Hetherington's request.
Heaven only knows why he asked mo
to look into liis past. I remained because I was curious—because I mistrusted blm. Ho— Words choked
him for a moment. There's a dead
body in Deepshot Wood—a bullet
wound In the breast; must have lain
thero somo weeks; it's tlie body of
Hetherington's cousin, a man called
Oscar Soral. Sir Georgo killed him.
I havo proof.

round, holding him by the lappcls ot
his coat.
"Y'es—proof! I havo absolute

But Muray still held blm.   "Whero |

Saluzo started and gazed hack over

".Not to talk; to be kept free fropi

Doctors generally ordered body and
soul as if they were machines. Conversation would not excite as much as
the quiet mental struggle that was
going on. Thoughts wero dangerous,
not words.
And as tlio hours passed she began
to realize how dangerous woro her
own thoughts. Soon she would have
to speak if lie did not.
a\nd again sho smiled. Here Uiey
sat In the silent dimly-lit chamber,
husband and wife, close together yet
miles apart.
A dead man divided,them. A dead
man united thein.
Sile raised the shade from the lamp
by her side, and bending over the bed
stared intently at Hetherington.
Did he realize at last the full significance of tlie dead man, the part
be had played and would yet play in
both their lives?
In tlie artificial light her polo face
looked almost ghastly white. The
black hair, dressed low across her
forehead hiding her ears, covered her
bead, surrounded her face like a
shroud; her eyes were brilliant and
intense. They scarcely looked beautiful now, malign rather; the eyes of a
huntress who has run her prey to
earth and is not quite sure whether he
will not turn and rend her.
"Clve me something to drink." Hetherlngton spoke without opening bis
eyes. • .
Carmen rose and crossed'the room
noiselessly. And then raising liis
head a little Hetherington watched her.
Her movements were superb, llko
thoEu of a tigress in a Jungle. She
seined tn wall; from her hips and
shoulders with a peculiar swinging
movement, as if forcing her way
through dense foliage and undergrowth. Ho saw her examining the
glasses nnd bottles on the tablo.
Slie was oxamlng them, wondering
wbat thoy contained.
Sho had tuld Saluzo that life in hor
country consisted nf u kiss and a
liiill'o. In England the knife was Impossible, people possessed foolish prejudices, "ut tliere were other ways
out, of the difficulty, She didn't know
what the bottles contained, but they
looked harmless enough.
She returned to the bedside and
held a glass to her husband's lips. He
sipped it then lay back ngalnut bia
pillow, .
"1 think I'm going to make a quick
recovery," be smiled. "My bead has
almost stopped throbbing and I'm beginning to remember "
Carmen loaned anxiously towards
him.   '.'yes'.1"
"All the funny dream I've dreamed
while I was under the anaesthetic!"
"Is that all'.'"
He turned his head on tlie pillow
until, without altering his position or
moving, bo could see her faco clearly.
"What else would you have mo remember'.'"
"That onee you loved me," sho
w!*'*-trred.

Life Full of Romance and Suggestive
ness  for  Young  Men
Lord strathcona,. tho High Commissioner for Canada, who died in Lon*
den at tlio age of ninety-four, was one
of tlie world's grout empire builders.
His life was full of romance and packed with suggestlvtmoss f«r young men

wilds of Labrador with no one but the
I. dians and trappers for his companions, two thousand miles from anywhere. Coming of good sturdy Scotch

Willie lie gained skill in trading and an
Intimate Knowledge ot tho Hie of the
wilds. Ho was the representative of
tlie Hudson's Bay Company whose
sign II.B.C. is sometimes read to mean
"Here Beforo Christ."
Donald Smith dreamed of a united
Canada, and when lip came to a position of power as the'head it the company which he served ho determined
to make bis dream a reality. The
Northwest Territories wero purchased
hy the newly formed Dominion from
,1116 Company, and he with a few others
'of tiie samo spirit and temper projected tho Canadian Pacific Railway to
hind tlie east and west together, lt is
easy to see the wisdom of that project,
now, but when it was proposed it was
*■* v.. (' .,f uq nn impracticable, visionary idea. It was Donald Smith's
faith lhat mado the present Canada
by opening up the Great West, that
land of marvelous fertility and productiveness. All Canadians delighted
to do him honor, and when he was
elevated to ibe peerage hy Queen Vic*
lorla it was felt tbnt this notable recognition o£ his services was worthily
bestowed.
Strathcona died .-. very wealthy man
and to the end of bis career ho kept
in active touch with educational, phll*
nnth'rnpis nn I religions work through*
out* the Dominion. He was not content to delegate his givlngs to others,
but arrived at a decision as to what
ho should do after painstaking inquiry
and Investigation.
Young men will do well to ponder
his career in the following marked
characteristics:
His Health.—This came from life
in tho onen air, a careful diet and a
rigid observance of the laws of health.
Xo man can live to he nearly a century old, with bis natural force unabated, without ho watches against the
Inroads of disease and keeps his body
in constant fitness for the hard tasks
of life.
His Will—Resoluteness, determination', constant mustery of difficulties
spell Success. The weak in will go to
the wall—and stay there. The men
who ma 'er fate and climb to the top
are those who find a way or make It.
Thc spirit of Strathcona was open-eyed
toward opportunities, but neither blind
or undaunted hy difficulties.
His Conscience was an asset. He
was Scotch, and tha'. means that he
came from generations of forbears who
feared God with an instinctive reverence. Duty was a big word in Strath-
cona's vocabulary. It held him
steady to his gigantic taskB and It kept
him alert to tbe . opportunities for
helpful service which his wealth gave
lilm.
His later life was spent in such surroundings as wealth and good taste
could procure, and ho was crowned
with great honors from royalty, universities aud the masses of his fellow
men. He rose to such eminence bv
bis own efforts and pointed out by his
own example the path to greatness

Knocking on the  Door.
To me all knocking at a closed door j
is fraght with the tragic, an lmpera-1
tive summons to opeu to the unknown;
to suspend for tho time the present
action or conversation to make way for
that whlcb mav not bo denied.   I have
observed,   with   myself   particularly,
when in a room alone that a sudden
knocking nt the door, coming without
previous warning as to who    might
wish admittance, * suspends  as  if in
mid-air the thought or act upon which
1 am engaged.   A feeling of vague apprehension possess me, a momentary
wonderment at the sudden and unex-*
nected interruption of thought.   And'
I have observed, too, when in a room |
with others, that at a knocking at ihe
door all will turn toward it. suspending action, leaving tlie speeeli uncompleted, witli a strained expression in
llieir eyes, as if fearing something disastrous, while the shadow of silence
wilt fall upon us until  thc door    is!
opened and the cause of the unknown'
summons    discovered.    Though    the
shadow of silence in such an instance
is of such sliort duration and may faU

I Helen  Gould,  Philanthropist
Fresh In our mind still is the romance of Helen Gould, wbo married
Finlay J. Shepherd after a very brief
courtship.
One who lovea her fellowmen, "s
how Helen Gould was looked upon
from her early girlhood.
Never was a great fortune more
wisely administered for the purpose
of bringing happiness into the world
than that of tbe older Miss Gould.
Since her marriage her good deeds
have continu^-d, and only a few weeks
ago a gift was mado to the New York
Young Women's Christian Association
of $200,000.
The Victoria Colonist say*; ot Mrs.
Shepherd:
How many kindly deeds '.his treat
hearted womr.n has had an opportunity of doing since her marriage the
world does not know. This one has
been made public and proves that
-Mrs. Shepherd ia as tetidoi* hearted
as the young lady who. soon after
coming into possession of an Independent fortune, provided a summer home
for children.
The educational gifts or Miss Gould
have been generous, aud young men
and women have benefited equally by
ber luuiiitli'eiK'c. Of tbe same nature
Is the foundation of a library in New
York.
Mrs. Shepherd is r. patriot as well
as a philanthropist. She devoted, during the United States war with Spain,
$100,000 to thp Government for war
purposes, and was herself an active
member of tlio Women's War Belief
Association. When the soldiers aud
sailors came home wounded she not
only gave them money, but personal
service to their icllef.
A Y.M.C.A. building for the use of
sailors is auother of the Institutions
towards whicli Mrs. Shepherd contributed before her marriage. In her,
every good cause has fqund.a supporter, and many have benefited by her
gifts. Her share 0. thc great fortune
left by her father ia being well spent.
Her benefactions do not do less good
because the giver bus common sense
as well as wide sympathies.
The Pirlt Easeiitlrl
Yon have often said what you would
do if you were in somo one else's
shoes or hnd tome one elso's job to do.
You have honestly thought that you
could make a belter list of it than he
was doing. And perhaps you could.
But really your honest conviction in
the matter did not make it absolutely
sure. It was actually possible, notwithstanding the way you felt about
lt, that you might have chawed up
worse than he did. It might have
heen that there were factors ln the
situation that you didn't understand,
and thut his job would havo looked
quite different when you got at* It from
what It did when you wor* watching
him do It. It was so easily possible
that It would have been so that for
tbe future it might be better that you
be - little less sun of your efficiency
for the other man's work, or bettpr,
that you give a little less ateutlou to
how it Is being dope, thus saving more
for your own. If you could practice
doing your own job as well as yo*.i are
encouraging yourself to think you
could do lhe other fellow's it would
probably he i inch better all around.
For after all what wo would do If we
were somewtere else is not so important as what wo are doing being where
we t.re.—Christian Guardian.

Tolstoy's  Handwriting
In the) Revue de Paris Count Ella
Tolstoy describe! bis mother's exper-
ences as his father's amanuensis:
"Being very shortsighted, my mother had to bring her eyes close to the
paper to decipher my father's frightful scrawl. The work often took her
until long after the rest of the house*
hold had gone to bed. When she found
a passage which was quite Illegible
she used to go to papa and ask blm
to explain It. But that seldom hap-
pended, for sho was very reluctant to
disturb him. When she did so he took
the manuscript from her nnd asked,
with evident Irritation: 'Well, what ls
It you can't understand?' Then he began to read it himself, but -'hen ho arrived at the puzzling pasage he was invariably pulled up and had tho greatest dlfllculty in even guessing what he
bad written."
Count Elle Tolstoy adds that while
the spelling was often very bad. the
countess never failed to put it right.
A German farmer near Manhattan
lost bis horse and went to tbe Nationalist office to advertise :'or it. Tbe
editor asked him wbat be wanted to
say.
Yust put vat I told you, replied thc
man. One nite de udder day about
a week ago last month I heard me* a
noise by der front middle ot de rac
yard which eld not use to be. So
I jumps tho ped ont, run mi: der door
and ven I seo I finds my pig gray Iron
