will let you in because you have a
sore head or lame toe.

I nearly i.ll iliiwjll The whole of my
lic.id was u deep, rich, shiny brown.

given llie a buttle of brown hair dye instead of ii hair la'oiiuci'i'. I scruubiii i.ti

I iheuipiut ihe morning in co'isiilting

I had riiboctl my head with some coinu.uu
dye und that such often stains the skin,
out also expressed uu opinion "ul wane
dlieiiliililiiii ingredient hud been mixed wilh
llie dye, whicli inane il slick so fust and
shine so brilliantly. "It may wear oil u,
ti.ne," was l.u- meager coiuloi't I received.
'This was on Saturday and in meaner-
noon I waa going to meet liose, who had n
"How ill you look, George!" waa her first
remark when we met.
"Ami no wouderl" I groaned. "Look at
my beml."
It was no use trying to bide It. It would
have to come sooner or later, and I wanted
to get it over.
"Ijc���let mesit down," gurgled Rose. "I
-i feel laiiit."
We sat down, nnd I told her how it came
about that my head was brown, though l
didn't niciiliou that Saunders��� whom I
didn't think she knew by name���had
wrought me the mischief.
"Wo���won't it come off!"'asked Rose,
covering Iier face with her hands,
"I've tried everything, mid I can't move
it," I groaned.   "What am I lodul"
"I'm sure I don't know, unless you redyc
it pi-pink ur hl-biiie and make a sort of
Italian sky of your head. 11 would be far
pret prettier I linn it is at present," she said,
with a hysterical laugh.
Then Hose suddenly got up and said firmly:
"George���Mr. Podgem, our engagement
must lie ut an end. I could have put up
with mi ordinary buhl head, but���but I ciiii-
not marry ll man with a brow n liald head,
ll���it puts me lu iiiinil of our inn���nuihog-
any table.   Goo���goodhy. for���forever!"
Could I blame herl I felt Unit in justice
I could not. No man with u shiny, brown,
buhl head could expect u girl lo marry h.m.
I never patronized lhat |mstry cook's
again. My digestive untiii* rejiiicu thereat,
bill my heart is sure <li-.li.---.-il.
Hut now comes the erne.ly of the case.
Three months afterward I was in lorn ml
that Hose Hiiyuor hud married Thomas
While a student in the eity of Herlin,
whither l had gone to flnish my education,
���' became acquainted with a follow student
f tbe mime of Jules Langheim.   From the
.('. y first we were lust friends.
Langheim wns worthy nf the friendship 1
���ave him���noble, open, candid, high spirited
mil generous tn a fault.   Asa natural con-
equeiice. onr intimacy soon became audi
that, each made a coiiiidiuil of the other,
(hie evening, 011 returning from the opera,
whither I hail gone alone, I found bim
walking slowly up and down tbe room,
looking very pale and evidently more dis
1 ii it 1-d in mind than he wished to hare ap
"My friend, what lathe matter?" was mj
first eager question.
"I fear I have some unpleasant news for
; you," he wid, throwing hlnu>'..[ into a large
j armchair.
I    "Speak, .Inles," I cried.   "Wimtlsit?"
"i iv, 1 the curd table tonight 1 had an nl-
: iciealion with Adulpb llerguer."
1     "Weill-"
"His friend lias railed upon me since, and
I have referred him lo you. 1 did uot know
what hour you would return, but requested
him lo drop hi at ll-HD."
"Can the mutter not be settled by mu-
luul friends*" I asked.
"I fear nut He accused me of cheating,
und I culled him 11 liar. Until his charge ia
wii iiilriiwn, iniiie 11111-1 bold good."
"Liu, my dear friend, you must not
llfhi!" I persisted. "Think how much
mure you stake than lie. He la a mere adventurer, while you luive character ami
high ho|ies. which will be blasted by this
one act. even should you escape with life.
Vou know our college regulations will expel yon, and the criminal law will bare
you id its mercy!"
"Still, what am 1 to dor If I decline to
light, I shall be branded as a coward."
"It is 11 bant case," I groaned. "Either
horn of the dilemma Is bad enough, heaven
knows, but still, let the result he what it
will, I must insist that you do not give
your adversary a meeting. You must summon up all your moral courage and refuse
to go out!"
Jules Langheim started np, and with
pule cheeks, knitted brows and clenched
hands rapidly paced up and down the room
some eight or ten times. Then hastily seat-
tug himself at his writing desk lie seized a
peu, dashed off a few lines aud folded,
sealed aud superscribed the note.
"There, Fred, you have your wish���
grained to yon only of all men 011 earth. I
ahull not In* disgraced by a duel���there will
be no hostile meeting between llerguer nnd
myself. When his friend calls, give him
that note ns your answer, nml with that
your part iu the affair will cease."
He turned away, nnd at the same moment there enmu a tap nt the door.
"It is Swi'itzcn, llcrgner's friend," be
���mid.   "I will go out."
Witli Sweitzeu my business soon ended.
1 bunded him the note for llerguer, and
told him the decision of Lnnghdui would
he found tu that. He replied that audi a
proceeding was irregular. 1 rejoined that
1 believed I had nothing further to say or
do in Hie mutter, and tho Interview abruptly closed,
After Swcitzen had gone 1 anxiously
looked for the return of my friend. One,
I wo, three hours passed, and still bedd
not come. I remained up all night, but be
did not return,
I took a long walk through the city to
cool my fevered brain und was returning
to my room uu hour or so Inter when some
one hurried up behind and lapped me ou
the shoulder. I turned and confronted u
stranger tu I he plain garb of a peasant.
"Ileg your pardon," be said, "but might
you be a student iu thu college your"
"Perhaps you might tell me, then, bow
quickest I can Hnd a gentleman named
Frederick Delormer"
"It is my inline," 1 exclaimed.
"It's curious," returned the countryman,
beginning to unbutton his coat, "that I I
should have run upon tne very gentleman 1
wanted. Well, at daylight this morning,
just us 1 wus coniiug out of my house, a
geutleniau rode up on a panting horse and
handing me a letter and 10 tbalers made
me swear to deliver it before night, and
here I be."
1 siezed the letter, tore it open and rend
the following with feelings better imagined
than described:

remember you said you would permit the risk
of life, providing character were not involved.
I acted un lids and wrote Bergncr 1 would not
light htm, hilt would decide by lot which of tho
two should put an end to Ids own existence. I
followed his friend to hia lodgings, and wo

On reading this I wns so shocked that for
sum* iiiiuiilis I could not net. My bruin
swum, nml the letters before me seemed to
lake the color of blond. I roused myself at
length wilh Ihe hope of being yet in time-
to wive my friend and darted oil like amiiil-

and got permission to Use the government

The hospital bull is now a thing of
tho past. It was a grand success in
every respect. The attendance was all
that could havo been desired. The
Donald friends assisted nobly by turning out in such large numbers.
The hall was very artistically docor-
ated with Bugs, bunting, evergreens,
etc., nnd showed throughout that
muster hands had been ot work. As
was announced the ball was opened
with the Grand March, promptly at
!l o'clock, between thirty and forty
couple taking the floor. Among those
present were Mesdames Jiunieson,
Patmore, Barrie, Miss Ross and Miss
A. Sullivan, and Messrs. Jamieson,
Ruttan, Lipscombe, Alexander, De-
Clieyne, Alex. Cummins, Coughlin,
Panzer and Dr. Symonds from Donald;
Miss McDonald from Beaver.
Among the married ladies we noticed
particularly Mrs. Capt. Gordon who
was most becomlngl-' dressed in pink
silk with black luce; Mrs. Wells, pink
Mrs. H. Woodley, Steele gray ; Mrs,
Patmore, electric blue; Mrs. Durick,
cream ; Mrs. Jamieson, salmon pink ;
Mrs. McKay, flowered silk; Mrs.
Moodie. naiy blue; Mrs. Newberry,
pink und cream ; Mrs. Bnrrie, canary
yellow ; Mrs. Greene, blue.
Mr��t of tlie dresses nieiit a description, which space, however, will not
permit us to give. As regards the
belle of tlie ball, we lime no hesitancy
in naming Miss A. Sullivan for the
honor. Sho was dressed in a pu'.e
blue silk, trimmed with flowers, and
was much admire,! by all. There were
also Miss Coinincher in nile green and
black lace; Miss Ross, heliotrope;
Miss Hardie, heliotrope; Miss M.'Har-
die, pink ; Miss Moodie, pink ; Miss
Armstrong, white; Miss Hudson, blue
trimmed with black luce; Miss Sutherland, green satin und black luce; Miss

'lhcse figures did not give any expression to the encouraging feeling met
with in most of the stations,but he hud
been much grutiliol to liud that his
services were acceptable and at Glacier
(where le held only one meeting) the
people hint requested him to roturn as
soon as possible.
One thing, however, that made it
hard was the few who were to be
counted upon to assist him in the
spiritual work of the charge, he had
no session and this threw a larger
responsibility on It is shoulders. However he hoped that time would see thisi
changed and a strong band of workers
raised up in the congregation. !

The Golden Hospital is indebted to
Mr. Alt*. Penzer of Donald, for $64
collected by him. Twenty dollars of
this money bus rather a history attached to it. In November, 1890, Mr.
Hurry Connacher, the present secretary
of the hospital, while in Donald lost a
$20 bill. Somewhere about that time
Mr. Penzer picked up a bill of this denomination and some time after heard
of Mr. C.'s loss. Not hearing of any
other claimant he concluded it must be
his but not seeing hiin for sometime
tiio matter slip-nil his memory, until
this week, when being in Golden ho
spoke to Mr. C. telling hiin the circumstances nnd offering to return the
niiioniit or in case ho did not feel sure
it was his, to donate it towards the
Golden Hospital. After such a time
Mr. C. could scarcely see his way to
claim it and us it was going to a
worthy cause decide,I to give Ihe
hospital the benefit of it.
