We would suggest to the Agri-
cultunal Society (that they run ai

the top of the fence-on either side

It has come to our notice that a
very serious conflagration is in store
for us unless great car* is taken to
protect the property along the line
of the railroad against th* possibility of fire from live cinders from
the locomotive. A fire arising
from this source may sweep tbe
Belta clean of everything, so it be-
kooves everyone to be vigilant.
HOW TO ACT i
It would seem tbat the prime
reason for nothing having been
done in the direction of good roads,
fe the fact that no one cares to take
the initiative.
Now, the more general1 feeling is
tkvorable to better roads under the
system) of a�� loan. What is1 necessary i.?. That thc Council prepare
an estimate of the cost of putting
the roads of the district in Ai condition, and draw up a scheme for
tha carrying on of the work in a
systematic manner, and place the
matter before the people. If the
plan meets with the approval of the
voters there is little: doubt but that
sufficient support cfen be obtained
fo carry the scheme to a successful
issue.   Try it!
tpJiE WARD SYSTEM.
The w��-d system, we are convinced, has outlived its usefulness.
The way ter make the best use of
the taxes' is- to abolish the ward
system. The way to get the best
men into the Council is to abolish
the ward system. The* way to
do away with dual voting is to
abolish the ward system. The
way to abolish the ward system is
lo obtain mose tUna half the names
on the assessment roll, representing
more than half the assessed property, attached to a petition praying
for its abolishment. By the abolishment of the ward system, we have
the whole of the miHi*icipnLay from
which to choose each and every
ejMos.    Why not do it?

Uj friend Wllmore told nie a surprising
rtoiy tba other day. Doctors���and Wll-
��ore U one���do meet with aurprislng cusue
at tlmei
I had not Men my friend for some time,
wbea be invited uie to spi-nd u fow daye
wltb blm at his pretty villa overlook lng
tha Royal gardens at Kew. On the flrst
evening of my visit I eat with liim on tba
balcony of an upper room.
Cloae to ut was the great pnlmhourw.
Wllmore pointed to It.
"Whenever I look at tbat house," ha
���aid, "I think of the events of it night that
I spent In it with a man who would have
committed a murder had I not beon instrumental in preventing him."
I did what anyone else would have dona
���asked Wllmore to tell his story.
"Don't mind If I do," he replied, "only
I Must not be too lung about it.
"Well, it Is almost 25 years slime I settled bare near this wonderful garden. I
put up my brass plate und waited for patient!. I oould do this with little anxiety,
fer I had a slight income to keep nie yo-
lag.
"There oarae to Kew about the same
time a colonel, bis wife and his daughter.
Apparently they did not intend to reside
here permanently���thoy took a furnished
house by the quarter.
"I met the three of them in tho gardens
���enstantly Like myself, they had obtained a private pass and used to enter by
that little gute opposite to us. They wens
aatdoni ln the gardens when the general
publio were admitted.
"To be candid with you, the beauty of
the colonel's daughter was to ine far more
enchanting than the beauty of the gardens.
Yes, it wai a case of love at flrst sight.
"I am not going to describo her except
te tay that overy man before he reaches
my age experience* the tort of intoxication that I did then, and to him the beauty ef th* loved object Is incomparable.
"The girl, 1 mutt tell you, was one of
tb* most healthy looking girls I have ever
���ten. W* dootort know at a glanoe where
health bat itt abode.
"I took a dislike to the colonel���naturally perhaps, for he seemed to guard bit
���laughter with exceeding sternness. II*
disliked me, too, It wot plain I shall
������ver forget how he used to wateh me and
frown. Though I wat in love, I wat not
quit* devoid of reason and oould And muuy
excuses fer the man'* apparent antu��o-
nisiu. Doubtless he wanted a quiet time,
aa I did. Besides, the-colonel might well
kave Imagined at timet that I followed
them. It bad really reached that stage
wltb me that I felt despondent when I
eeuld not tee them. Of (he colonel's wife
I need toy little���the teemed to ba an un-
���tually modest, quiet, nw timid, woman.
"For two weeks I hod to be absent from
Kew on business.
"On returning, my flrst (visit wm to the
gardens���te th* rhododendron walk. They
were*'cjSlenEls K_ffl_, nut . ��.-.r ::."...n..*
of them���1 was looking for a face. Just
at 1 reached tbe open I saw three figures
coiuinu from the direction of the grove of
bamboo
"1 fancy I betrayed my feelings a little
���1 could not help it. 1 was shucked, almost paralyzed, to see the girl, upon
whose image every fiber of iny brain l,��d
dwelt, supported by her mother, pale,
slokly, utterly broken down in health.
"JSho looked at me���oh, what a pitiful
look I Her eyes were un naturally large
uud unnaturally bright, iivr face had become thin; its color had deepened. She
was plainly suffering from some sort of
slow fever, a fever that was consuming
her strength little by little.
"Later in tbe day I was at the railway
station, getting some books from Smith's
library. I saw the colonel at tiie ticket
oflice. H* wus inquiring for a ticket to
Holyhead,    lie did not see me.
"ft occurred to my mind all at once that
I might see his wife and daughter by
themselves next day. l'erhnps I should
have n chance to Introduce myself In my
professional capunity. Tbat night I concocted all sorts of plnns. In the morning
I was In the gardens early. As the time
drew nigh that thoso who I wished to see
arrived I was close to thoir customary
gate. Thoy came somewhat lute, und I
followed them. I felt mean���very mean���
in doing so.
"They made their way to the quietest
place in the gardens--tlio rhododendron
valley. There is a fountain beside the
path to lt They stopped at lt. I saw the
elder lady take a handkerchief, saturate it
at the fountain and apply it to the girl's
forehead as she stood beneath the arching
shade of a yow tree, leaning against a
branch of lt. Presently they proceeded
slowly, I following. Fortunutely there
were no others at that early hour to see
ma The two disappeared round a turning into tho valley. As/they did so I saw
something white full. When I reached it.
I found it to be tho handkerchief.
"Well, as I am telling the story, I hod
hotter tell it ull. I put tho handkerchief to
my lips and kissed it. To my uirmzeuiont
an odor came from it that I l. J smellud
but once before nnd had never forgotten.
It wus the odor of the 'Thug plant.'
"It was a fortunate thing that I had
traveled in tho east. While doing so I met
a lady, the wife of a .Madras artillery olli-
cer, who told me that she wus on tlio poi tit
of death. She descMbud her sickness most
carefully. Nono of her doctors had beeu
able to cure her. Sho had dono some urn -
Ice to the 'medicine mau' of tlie station.
He was noted among his ensto for skill in
curing by means of herbs. He begged I hat
he might see the lady and at lust was allowed. He entored the room, looked at
ber, wont about in an amazing ni'inuer,
smelling everything on the bed, the upholstery, the rugs, curtains, blinds, and
reached the window. There ho pounced
upou a plant that the olllcor's wife had
had for many years, having brought it
from her own Knglish home. The 'medicine man' plucked from the pot a small
weed that had not been attended io. Wltb
a cry of delight he said that the sahil.'s
Wife would live.
"I sought out the 'medicine man,' "
continued Wilmore after a pause, "and
after some persuasion he told me that, th*
weed he hud found Was of th* sort supposed to be used now by thugs instead of
their former strangling cord. Its odor
was poisonous, was omitted only nt night;
must be inhaled from the plant or from
tome article saturated with it; that the*
thugs covered the plant during the night
aud collected the poison.
"Now, ln the handkerchief I had pioked
up in the gardens I recognized the odor ol
the plant���unniistukubly it was tho smell
of the 'Thug plant' that tho 'medicini
man' had made me acquainted with.
"The girl, it teemed, was dying from
the offeots of the poison. Who could ba
administering it and why? Where had it
been obtained? What was I to do? Thcsi
questions absorbed my attention.
"I did not follow the ladies farthor. T*t
save the girl, I felt that I must not lot* ���
"That evening tb* director of the gardens was to hold an at home. I decided
to go,-to confide in the director. Itcume
tome likeun inspiration that the'Thug
plant' uilt/ht be in tbe gardens. I found
the director's house crowded���it was en
old fashioned place, partly in the gurdent.
When the host saw ths urgency of my
cose, he arranged with some special friends
tu take his place in entertuining tbe
guests. Then be listened patiently to all I
had to say, making particular inquiries
concerning the "Thug plant.'
" 'We huve a specimen,' he said. 'If
yon come with me, we will obtain more
information about it.'
"In a few moments we had crossed Kew
Green and entered the herbarium, having
with us the curutor, one of tbe guests. W*
consulted there a ponderous book and read
all about the 'Thug plnnt' and Its properties. Then we went to a department containing a mu it it tide of drawers, lubled and
numbered. An envelope, or 'capsule,' wai
produced. As tho curator opened lt I ex-
claimed:
'- "That's lti   I smell it from here!'
" 'Has any one lately Inquired aboil!
this plant?' usked tho director.
'���Thocurntor again consulted tbe book*.
" "There is an entry here���yes, Colonel
 called, made special Inquiries nbout
the "Thug plant," and wus tuken to set
it in the pulmhouse.'
"The director asked itt number.
" '!mji!.V was the reply.
" ' We will go to the palmhouse,' said tht
director, 'and have u look at "IKKiS" and
tee if it hns been disturbed. I believe it
Is a good size. It it tome time since I saw
It on its arrival.'
"He procured a derk lantern and ths���
key of the pianthonse. We started for lt.
The director told me what he knew of tht
colonel and his family. It hud occurred
to uie many times how little the girl resembled the colonel. She was his stepdaughter, I wat now told. The director's
wifo knew tbe girl's mother. Sho had
married a second time. In a few months
on coming of age the girl would inherit a
considerable fortune���thc reversion of bet
property in case of hor death would be to
tho mother���'and that,' said the director,
'means the colonel.'
"We were going through tbo herbaceous
garden and just emerged into an avenue
whon wo saw a tiguro passing rapidly lute
tho cypress walk.
" 'Who's that?' old the director in t
low tone.
" 'The colonel)' I answered, grasping
his arm.
" 'What ls he about?' he asked.
" 'Let us follow,' I said, 'and carefully.    Ho muy he alter the plant.'
"Down through the avenue of cypress
trees wo kept tho colonel's shadow in view
Thou wo watched him passing along the
margin of tho ornamental wnter. Tht
thrill cry of a startled tea gull made ut
clutch one another.
" 'Let ut stand here,' laid tbe director
'We can watch the house well.' We stood
by a magnolia. The colonel, with rapid
strides, made for the great house nf glass
He had to cross a wide, unsheltered spa e
MyoouipaniOD had bad his doubts, bur Uu
identity of tho llgure was now too clour
" 'It's he!" he ejaculated,
"The colonel weut rolind to a side en
trance. We glided round also te keep blm
in view.
" 'Why,'told the director, 'he's in with
out a key) Some one has boen bribed We
will go to the opposite door. I know where
the plant is.'
"We went. Outside'the door we removed our boots. Taking them with us
we crept in like burglars.
"In a few moments we reached the foot
of a winding Iron stairway, partly bidden
by creeping plants and tho surrounding
fialins and shrubs.    W* asoended noise
ewlf.
"Presently the director oaught my arm.
stopped me and pointed below. There wot
the colonel. He was leaning against a
palm trunk looking down intently at a
bush covered by a white cloth.

HIS LAST   HOPE REALIZED.
[From the Sentinel, Gebo, Mont]
In the first opening of Oklahoma
to settlers in 1889, the editor of this
paper was among the many seekers
after fortune who made the big
race one fine day in April. During
his travelling about and afterwards
his camping upon his claim, he encountered much bad tt-ater, which,
together with the severe heat, gave
him a very severe diarrhcea which
it seemed almost impossible to
check, and along in June the case
became so bad he expected to die-
One day one of his neighbors brought him one small
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhcea Remedy as a last hope. A big dose was
given him while he was rolling
about on the ground in great agony,
and in a few minutes the dose wee
repeated. The good effect of the
medicine was soon noticed and
within an hour the patient was
taking his first sound sleep for a
��� ortnight. That one little bottle
worked a complete cure and he cannot help bnt feel grateful. The
season for bowel disorders being at
hand suggests this item.���For sale

CRATES FOR FATTENING CBlOtKNS
Farmers who intend to try the
crate fattening of chickens this season should soon be thinking of
building their crates. Those in use
at the Illustration Poultry Stations
are 6 feet long, 16 inches wide and
20 inches high, inside measurement. Each crate is divided by
two tight wooden partitions into
three comparments, and each compartment holds four chickens. The
frame pieces are two inches Wide
and seven-eighths inch thick. This
frame is covered with slats, placed
lengthwise on three sides���--bottom,
back and top ��� and up-and-down
in front. The slats for the bottom
are seven-eights inch wide and five-
eights inch thick; the back, top and
front slats are the same width, but
only three- eighths inch thick. The
spaces between the slats in front are
two inches wide to enable the chick
ens to feed from the trough. The
bottom slats are put 1% inches
apart, and the slat nearest the back
of tbe crate is 2% inches from the
corner piece. The bottom slats are
raised two inches from the bottom
ofthe crate, to prevent the chickens
feet from being bruised when the
crate is placed on the ground. The
top slats are 2 inches apart and the
back slats i}_ inches. The top
slats are out above each partition;
and six strips 2 inches, wide are
nailed under them. The three doors
so formed are hinged to the rear
corner piece.
The crates are placed on stands
16 inches from the ground. The
droppings from' the chickens are received on sand or other absorbent
material. Alight "V" trough, 2%
inches inside, is placed in front of
each crate, and is carried on two
brackets nailed in front of e&eh
crate, to the ends of the crate. The
bottom of the trough is 4 iuches
above the floor, and the upper inside edge is 2 itiches from the crate.

You have seen them demonstrated in your city and
