COI'TIIKIIIT, I'.'OO, a. c. a. LESSI.
My mlBtiess I.i tlalnsborough rou*)
lu.il lost a to .lots** lis tlie house, and the
thief was the parlor siiiliil. I knew It
fi-nui lier actlous, iiinl three months
after I left tlio house she was caught*
lu a similar olTense mill owned up to
the first theft. However, the crime
was lalsl off on me, anil because 1
inissle iiKllsim.it ami iierhnps liupu-
dent tirotest I wno Huns; out of the
house nt half an hour's notice and re
fused a character. I was Idle for the
next three months. The flrst thing demanded wheu I apjslls-d for a place
was a chui-iictei-. As soon as It was
learned thnt 1 hnd none It wns useless
lo talk,furl her. lt was for this reason
Hint I Anally paid a fee to au Ints-tll-
gence olllce In Margate street and was
a. length sent for to tnke a plnce at
generis 1 housework, lt wns an old
mnn named Dyson who wanted me.
lie wns willing to take me without a
character because he would bave to
pity less wages and because, as be
grimly asserted, there was nothing
lying around loose In his house for one
lo sti-nl. As wc snt face to face 1
Hissed him up as mean and iienurious,
lint 1 did uot see any evil In him. He
hnd an aged nud iuflriii wife, he told
me, and 1 would be the only servant.
It was not fur me to pick and choose.
I must hare a place nnd "bold It long
enough to get n character again. I
went with him miles aud utiles out on
the Holbnruss s-ositl, and we at last arrived at the cheajsly built and cheap
lookiug cottage lie occupied. It was a
place devoid of almost all conveniences
and had been ss-ls-ctcd for its cheap
renl. I found the old wife deaf, almost
blind nnd pnlpled. aud lt was apparent
that she Iiui! no care whatever. She had
become childish nnd petulnnt, nnd.before I had been lo tlte house half an
hour-Mr. Dyson whipped her with a
strap for snyiug ttu,t she was hungry.
As he whipped lier I saw lilm look at
her lu a way tn gls-e mc a chill. In the
course of three or rout- slays I made up
my mind that he regarded her with detestation ansl nlilisii-t-ciiee and was hourly hoping for her sleuth. 1 wondered
that he had not pushed her dowu stairs
or found oilier menus to bring nbout an
"accidental" ds-uth. but the old man
was full of craft and cowardice. 1
soon had evidence that he was In love
Willi n widow In lhe nelghborlsoosl, or
at least lie desls-ed to be five bo that he
could marry her. The mnn had uo oc*
ciijuitlou nml seldom left the house.
Durlug my lirst iwo weeks In the place
he never allowed me to see the wife
except lu his presence ansl fouud fault
If I cooked anything extra for her or
expri'sscd my sympathy. He had a
way of whispering to himself, and a
dozen limes over I heard him sny:
"I've, waited for^ tive yearB, but I
won't wait much longer. I'll get rid of
hi-i- and he happy."
My milium Impulse on finding out
how he felt townid Ida wife was to Ily
the honse, but I hnve exjilnlued how 1
wns situated. And. too. I soon got the
fa-Hug thnt I ought to stay to protect
the poor old woman. I flgured It out
Hint, while be might thirst for her
sleuth, he woulsl not proceed to extremities while I was In the bouse. It
si-enicd as If he woulsl hnve lived on
slum., as he had done for the last two
months, If he .militated anything of
thnt sort. I didn't know tbe depth of
his croft, however. He had brought
ni" there to work her sis-nth through
me. The flrst thing I siisplclqped this
way was one l''"Jrf'**'*.T*-'-jVu lie asked
me to help her slt-fpUvlw-Tlie stairs
were steep ami shaty. iniu he bod pried
one of the steps loose, that It might
slide from under our feet. As a matter of fact, it dlsl give tray, but I
caught myself ami saved tbe woman.
When old Dyson saw the failure of his
plot, be looked cbagrlm-d and savage
snd presently found excuse for culling
tbe poot wife's ears.
Ill thn course of ��� couple of weeks
*-. oecsireu toat tne cellar waa mil of
rats and gave me money and commanded me to buy arsenic. He recommended me to go to a store mtles away
aod to say that I wanted It for my
complexion and to give my own name.
1 went to a drug store only two blocks
evrey and gave his name, and when
be discovered this he waa highly Indignant for a day, and 1 rather expected to be thrown out However. In the
course of tbree or four slays be devel-f
oped another plan. After coaching tbe
old wife be left me alone witb ber for.
tbe first tlmsj, and she begged me to
get her some laudanum for toothache
aud not mention the mntter to bim. It
was easy to tell tbat she had been
coached what to say, and I rs-fused to
buy the drug. A few days Inter, 'as 1
was preparing ber a soup, I had to
leave tbe kitchen for a minute. When
1 returned, tbe soup was giving out n
strange odor, and. being aatlstled that
the husband had poisoned It I of
course threw It awav. Be scolded
about my waste, but when I lookssd
bim square In the eyes be dropped his
and had no more to say.
1 bad been with tbe Dysons Uvo
weeks when the climax came. The old
woman was holding her own, If not
getting better, and the husband's Impatience had a savage edge to It. Their
bedroom was on the north side of the
house. All along on tbat side was a
deep excavation for a factory, aud the'
cellar was full of stones nnd water.
From the bedroom window the distance to tbe cellar bottom was all of 30
feet I slept on the west side, with two
rooms and two doors between us, but
so poorly built wns tbe house tbat If
voices were ralBed above a whisper
they could be heard, und there were
also many cracks and crevices to peer
through. At 10 o'clock one night I lay
wondering If be really meant to take
her life and how he would finally accomplish It wben I beard a hnlf suppressed scream from his room. I got
softly out of bed and went to the farther door, and, looking through n crack,
I saw that tbe window was up and that
ho stood before It with his wife In bis
arms. She was hanging on to him
with fingers of steel and making a
great struggle. I heard him brenthlng
heavily and snarling and growling as
he tore her fingers loose, but I did not
know wbat be planned to do till of a
sudden be staggered to%ie open window And flung ber out. She sci-cnnii-d
as she weut to her death, and In my
fright I echoed lhe scream. I remember tbe mnn rushing ncross the
room at me, of bis dashing ojis-u the
door, of his striking me dowu. nn I then
came darkness which histiil for weeks.
He struck me with n piece of Insu and
fmctured my Bkull. He then s-arrlesl
my body slown stairs nnd bom It a
quarter of a mile nway anil filing It
Into another excavation. Befiu-e taking me from the house he put un sny
hat and cloak, and thus It nppi'iired to
those who fouud my unconscious body
next morning tbat I hail lis-s-ss i-Jlliln^
home the night before and fallen Into
the pit. Aa lo his wlfs*. he gave ilio
alarm and brought the iiolisi* and mnila
out that It was a rase of suicide.
While bo was fast asleep, as be claimed, she had stolon to the winslow nnd
leaped to ber sis-nth.'
His story svent. nnd It wns n-vn
months before Ihere wns nny .-on.'-ii*
diction. I bad n fmctured skull, brain
fever nnd pneumonia and fos* ivs-eka
arsj weeks lay as one dead. When I
mebded, my memory was confused,
and It was seven months before I toll
my story and pill the police ou the
track. Long before that Dyson hnd
married the wlslow and sallsil for
America, and, though efforts were
made to find lilm, nothing came of
tbem. Never did a mau deserve the
hangman's rope mors-, and ysst, if living today, he Is tree and has no fair

WHEN DISCODRAGED^TUM TO DH. CHASE
He Cures Every Form of Piles Thoroughly and Well
Without the Danger, Expense  and Pain
of an Operation.
It is surprising what a large num-
get of men and women suffer from
the wretched uneaalness and torturing itching of plica. You may be
among those who, through modesty
or fear of the surgeon's knife, have
been prevented from appealing to
your physician far a cure, fou have
tfled tho hundred and one things that
friends* havo recommended and have
become discouraged. You say, as*
many havo suld beforo you, that
there Is no cure for piles.
Now Is the time for you to turn to
Dr. Chose, whoso famous ointment is
recognized the world over as the only
actual cure for every form of piles.
The real substantial value of Dr.
Chase's Ointment has given it a
unique position among medicines. It
Is usod in nearly every neighborhood
on this continent and has become
known by word of mouth from friend
to friend and neighbor to neighbor.
Ask your friends about it, ask your
druggist, ask your doctor. Others
have been discouraged, and after
years of misery have been cured by
Dr, Chase's Ointment. Here la one,
Mrs. James Brown, Hlntonburg, near
Ottawa, writes :���"1 have been a
constant. sufferer from nearly every
form of piles for the last 20 years,
and during that time, both here and
in tho old country, have tried almost
every remedy.
"I am only doing justice to Dr.
Chase's Ointment when I say that I
believe it to bo the best remedy obtainable for bleeding and protruding
piles. I strongly recommend Dr.
Chase's Ointment to mothers, or Indeed, to any person suffering from
that dread torment���piles."
Mr. Ueorge Thompson, a leading
merchant of Dlenhelm, Ont., stales :
"I was troubled with itching piles
for 15 years, and at times they wor&
fio hod I could scarcely walk. I trlecT-r
ti great many remedies,. but never *
found anything like Dr. Chase's Ointment. After tlie third application I
obtained relief, and- was completely
cured by using one box." Ask your
neighbors about Dr. Chase's Ointment, lhe only absolute euro for
piles*.
You can obtain Dr. Chase's Olnt-
inent# for- 00 cents a bbx trom any'
denier. If you prefer, enclose thia

Tbere on the platform stood the roll
of lew rag carpet, with the committee

stood a farmer, bis wife and four children. With her own hands tbe wife
bad cut, sewed, dyed and woven. She
hnd been encouraged by husband and
friends to enter tbat carpet for the
prise, and tbe hour for the fatal decision had come. The faces of tbe
committee were Impassive and unreadable. Tbere were blue and red aud

"But It must git tho prise, mother,"
said the children lu chorus. "We are
taught that goodness Is always rewarded, and who Is gooder than you?"
The committee seized the roll nud
slummed It down, and Joel and Mlran-
dy turned pale.
The committee opened the roll to look
for places where hogs might squeeze
through, ond the children grew weak
lu the knees,
Tho carpet was measured, walked on,
kicked about, rolled np, and six persons heard the beating of their own
hearts,
"I think I'll die," whispered tbe wife
as sbe sat down on a nail keg covered
with a crazy quilt
"Not ylt," rejslied the husband. "Now

It. Hank Smith wns billed to speak ut ii
schoolhuuse near Wliiteuiiili. when a club
was to he organized. Tlie room wan
jammed lull of men, women and children,
A little platform hud been temporarily
arranged for the urittnr of the evening,
surmounted by a single chair, the sent of
which some miscreant had covered with
fresh glue. In this cliuir, to which he
was conducted. Hunk stit down, not
knowing it wus loaded, Meantime ihe
burghers proceeded with their work, and
nn hour was consumed before the otliccrs
were elected nml the job finished. The
new president then stepped forward und
Introduced "the congressman of this district, the Hon. Henry O. Smith of A.Irian."
Mr, Smith got un, nnd so did the chair.
He tried to shake it nil' by u hi[> wriggle.
This failed. He reached down and tried
to pry It off witb his lingers, hut without
success. He pulled sturdily at the rear to
force It to let go, but it wouldn't do anything of the kind. He now smelt a rodent. The president, seeing bis predicament, stepped up and gave the thing such
a tug that Smith in alarm, but In an undertone, said:
"Hold on, Ferguson, you'll tear the
cloth away, and you can see my cout is a
short sack."
The* audience now tumbled to tbe situation and instautly burst Into thundering guffaws. The room became a bedlam
of laughter convulsed lunatics. Women
screamed and children whooped, while
ublebodled meu lay down on tbe benches
and roared. The hilarity was catching,
and soon Hank, genial hearted and fun
loving us he wns, sin down, leaned buck
and joined the deafening chorus. Finally,
waving bis hand, the crowd became sulli-
clently quiet to hear lilm say, "l came
hoie to speak my piece, nnd I'll do it,
though the whole sclioolhouse were glued
lo ine." Then he got up again, and, half
bent over, with ihe chnlr dangling behind,
wnded In. At every motion he made the
chair would bump tip nud down on the
floor or swing against the wall or strike
the table holding lhe lamp. Of course
tlie crowd laughed when he Joked uud

FREQUENTLY DUE TO SLUGGISH

Mr, Frank Walters, of Exetar. Tells of
Huflfoilug anil How Dr. Williams'Fink
Pills L'uiedlllut/fter Other Medicines
J-'iil ed
From thu Advocate, Exeter.
Mr. Frank Walters is a young man
personally known to most of the residents of Exeter, where he has lived
nearly ull hiB life. Talking with the
editor of the Advocate recently Mr.
Walters said :���"In justice to Pr.
Williams' Pink Pills I think it my
duty, in view of whut they have done
for me, to add my lest monial to lho
thousands of others that huve been
printed. For some months 1 suffered
most severely from pains coursing up
aud down my back. It was thought
that these pains weru due to liver
aud kidney trouble, but whatever the
muse, they frequently loft uie in terrible agony. The pains were not always confined to the back, but would
shift to other parts of the body. As
a result I gol little rest, my appetite
became impaired, and 1 fell off greatly In weight. I fried different remedies suggested by friends, which having no ��� effect almost disgusted me
with medicine. Then a personal
friend urged me to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. I was not easily persuaded because I hud about concluded that medicine would not relieve
me, but he insisted and finally I decided to try them. I purchased one
box at lirst, and to my astonishment
before It was finished I was greatly
relieved. Then I got a couple more
boxes and these restored mo to my
former good health- I do not hesitate recommending this medicine that
others may profit by my experience,
und not suffer tortures as I did."
Di. Williams' Pink PUIs cure by going to tho root of the disease. Th.-y
renew nnd build up the blood, and
strengthen the nerves, thus driving
disease from tho system. If your
dealer does not koep them, they will
be sent postpaid at 50 cents a box,

Co., which consists of four passes on
tho Company's steamers to Windermere and return, meals and berth
being included, so lhat the members of
the wiunittg rink have an absolutely
free trip ou one of the finest scenic
routes in Oanada,
Thia competition is considered tho
most important and the ptixe the most
valuable of ull the prize* at the disposal of the olub, It also is the only
competition that has been played for
every your since tuc organization ol
the Curling Olub. and is decided by
each rink playing <~-**:h other rink, the
one winning the most games being
declared winner. Tit's season there
are eight rinks formed iu the club.
The ekfps are U G. Parson, J.G-
Uilock, M. Dainard, 0. A. Warren, J.
Lamontagne, J. Henderson, W. Mo-
N.'ish, W. B. Robertson. This makts
it necessary for 5t> games to b-i played
before the ownership of the passes is
established, The gamos played this
week areas follows: On Friday night,
MuNe sh. 9, vs. Robertson, 5; Dainard,
11, vs. Henderson, 7. S.uurdny uight,

vs. Dainard, 5; Robertson, 12, vs
Warren, 3,
The game ou Wednesday evening
between Ullock aud McNeish aroused
great interest, esMcN'oish had not lost
a game mid would have a good lead on
all other rinks if hu won this oue. At
first it seemed as if he weru going to
win hands down, 'ho acoro standing
9 3 in his favor at thu conclusion of
| the 9th end. Ullock, however, never
; plays so wtll as when he Is in a tight
j corner and in the remaining ends made
'the requisite 0, thus tieiug McNeish'a
. score, Iu the oxtru end Ullock scored
one, winning out by 10-9. This gu\e
Ullock.and MoNeish equnl chances of
winning out and hi fused more interest
. iu the eompetltitn. The next evening,
however, Ullock met Parson and was
defeated by a score ef 14 to 7.
Henderson defeatod Lamontagne last
uight hy 13 to 12, which puts him ou
equal terms with McNeish. These two
rinks idiiy tonight (Friday) aud an
iutfrestiug ,;?-.'��e may be looked for.
