perience at Kitchener.
From the Herald-
Last Monday, while Conductor Hunt's
train was st Kitchener, a big rain storm
came up accompanied by heavy thunder
and Qiskes of  lightning.     It  became
necessary to chain a car, and W. Wilson
and J. Breniner, two of the brakemen,
and tbe car repairer at Kitchener, got
tbe heave chain out of the caboose and
with it over the shoulders of tbe three
of tbem ctarted down the track,   Tbe
storm seemed to have increased and tbe
sky  *»aa    overshadowed    with   heavy
clouds. Suddenly there was a crash aud
a mass of brilliant fire seemed to dart
from the heavens, centering upon the
chain csrrM by Ihe railroad boys.   All
three were prostrated aod it was some
time before tbey fully recovered.   Tbeir
bodies were burned in  places and tbeir
systems  were   filled    with  electricity.
Each one carried a watch and on exam-
inatlor, later tout day Mr. Tate found
tbat all of tbem bad been highly magnetized by the shock.
Fred Duniont, who was down the track
about half a mile, saw the flash and he
said it presented a brilliant spectacle, but
that he was filled with fear as he saw
the stream of fire reach down to where

j Coasl-Kootenay railway.
A cash subsidy of (4000 per mile is to
be given and a bonus of a million acres
of land. Norman aod Hugh McLean
are in Victoria today fixing up the deal.
It is understood that the contract will
be submitted to the legislature in a joint
bill with McKenzie aud Mann'a Cana
dian Northern scheme.
The Coast Kootenay road will connect
with the Hill system at both ends. At
the coast end it will join tbe Great
Northern system now under construction
fram Liverpool, on Fraser river, opposite
New Westminster, to Ladner, and with
a ferry system from Lfldner to S'duey,
on Vancouver island. Connection with
Victoria will be bad by mean* of the
Victoria & Sidney railway, while a
branch will be run from the mouth of
tbe Fraser to Vancouver. In the Boundary country the line will make connection with tbe Hill sy.tero to Spokane,
known as tbe V. V. & K , and Washington and Great Northern.
Tbis contract witb tbe McLeans is
practically a victory for the V. V. & E.,
as tbe McLeans obtained a charter for
that line, and have been lighting bitterly iu recent years against great odds and
powerful opposition to get government
aid.
The sudden reversal of the Dunsmuir
government's opposite n to V V. & E
j is believed to be owing to tbe fact that
! it hopes to secure a favorable opinion
from tbe public on the bill embracing
both tbe Canadian Northern and the
Coast-Kooteuay schemes, which it could
uot do with tbe McKenzie and Menu
contract aione. It is cons dered a clever
move.

This ia evidence of the fact thlt
Marysville Is bound to be a permanent

Tin' house, in question wns wlmt
Peter tbo Scholar (who cdrrects my
proof sheets) calls ono of the raslnurliy
sort—tlio front facing u street ami the
back looking over a turfed gai'iTon,
with n Ii 1110 tree or two. :i laburnum,
nml a lawn tennis court niiii'Ued cut,
Its white lines plait] to see ill lhe stnr-
liKlit. At the ond or the garden n dcor,
painted dark green, led Iuto a narrow
l:ine between high walls, where. If two
persons met. one hail to turn sideways
to let the other puss. The entrance to
this lane was cut In two by a wooden
post ahout the height of your hip, nml
Just beyond this, iu tlie highroad,
George was waiting for us with lhe
dot-curt.
We hnd picked the usual time—the
dinner hour. It had just turned dark,
and tlie church cluck, two streets awny,
wns chimin'' the quarter after S when
Peter and 1 let ourselves In hy lhe
green ilonr I spoke of nud felt along
the wall for the gardener's ladder that
we knew was hanging there. A simpler
job there never was. The bedroom
window on the lirst floor stooil rlghl
open lo tho night air. nml Inside was r.
faint candlelight flickering, just ns u
cureless maid will leave it after her
mistress has gone down to dinner. To
he sure, there was n chance of her com-
Ittg back to put it out, but we coultl
hear her volt*e going in the sei'Vntlls'
hall as we lifted the ladder ami rested
it against the sill.
•She's good for half nil hour yet,"
Peter whispered, holding the ladder
while I begnn to elimb: "but if I hear
her voice stop 1*11 give the signal io I e
emulous,"
I went up softly, [lushed my bend
gently above the level of the sill nut!
looked in.
It was a roomy place, with n great
half tesler bed, hung with curtains,
standing out from the wall on my
right. The curtnlna were of chintz, a
liaik background, with limning red
popples sprawling over it. and (lie
fitl'tlici' curtain hid the dressing tal le
ami the candies upon it and the Jewel
case that 1 confidently hoped to stand
upon it also. A bright Brussels carpel
covered the floor, and the wall paper. 1
remember—though, for the life of tue.
I can not tell why-was u pale gray
ground, worked up to Imitate watered
sill;, wiih springs of gilt honeysuckle
upon It.
I looked around nnd listened for half
a minute. The house was still as death
up here—uot n sound in I lie room or In
the passages beyond. With a nod t-i
Peter to hold the ladder linn I lifted
one leg over the Rill, then the o'.hi r.
dropped my feet carefully upon Ihe
thick carpet and went quickly around
Ihe bed lo the dressing table.
But ut the corner, and ns soon lis
ever I saw around the chintz curtain,
my knees gave way, nnd 1 put out a
hand toward the bedpost.
Before the dressing table, and In
front of the big glass In which she
could see my white face, was an old
lady sealed.
She wore a blazo of jewels and n low-
gown, out of whicll rose the scraggiest
neck nnd shonlders I have ever looked
ou. Her hair was thick with black <]■ e
nml fastened witli a diamond star. Be-
twoen Ihe two candles the powder
showed on her cheek bones like flour
on a miller's coat, Chin on hand, she
was gazing steadily into the mirror before her. nnd. even lu my fright. I had
time to Hole Hint n glass of sherry nnd
n plate of rice und curry stood at her
elbow nmong the rouge pots ami
powder puffs.
While I stooil slock still nnd pretty
well sen red out of my wits she rose,
st:II staring at my Image in the glass,
folded her linnils modestly over her
bosom und spoke lu u deep, tragical
voice:
"The prince!"
Then, facing sharply around, she
belli out her thin arms.
"You hnve come—ut last?"
There wns not much to sny to this
except Hint I had. So 1 confessed It.
Even with the candles behind her I
could see her eyes glowing like it dog's,
nuil an uglier poor creature this world
could scarcely show.
"Is the ludder set ogulnst the window V"
"Since you seem to know, ma'nm,"
sai.l I. "It Is."
"Ah, Romeo! Your cheeks are ruddy
—your poppies nre too red."
"Then I'm glad my color's come back;
for. lo tell the truth, you did give mo a
turn Just nt lirst. You were looking
out for me, no doubt"—
"My prince!" She stretched out her
arms again, nnd, being pretty well at
my wits' end, I let her cmbrnce me. "It
bus been so long," she said—"oh, the
weary while! And they 111 treat me.
Where have you been all this tedious
time?"
I wns not going to answer that, you
mny be sure. Hy this timo I bad recovered myself ■ulilcieutly to guess wUui
v.... i.. 1.1 iiiu  . i .us was n mad
nnnl of lhe family below, nml that the
gntue was in my hands if I played with
decent care. So I met her question with
another,
"Look here." I snid. "I'm running a
considerable risk lu braving these persecutors of your'n. Hadn't we better
(dope nt olicnV"
"I am ready."
"And the jewels? Y'oti won't leave
them to your enemies, 1 suppose."
She turned to the dressing table, lifted her jewel case and put It Into my
hands.
"I am ready," she repeated. "Let US
be quick and stealthy as dentil."
She followed me to the window and,
looking out. drew back.
"What horrible, black depths!"
"It's as easy." said I. "as pie. Y*0U
could do it on your head. Look here!"
I climbed out lirst and helped her, setting her feet on the rungs. We went
down in silence. I choking nil the way
nt the sight of Peter below, who was
looking with his mouth open nnd Ills
lips too weak to meet tlie curses end
wonderment thnt rose up from the
depths of him. When I touched turf
and handed him the jewel case, he took
it like n man In n trance.
We put the ladder buck In Its place
and stole over (lie turf together. But
outside the garden door Peter could
stand no more of lt.
"I've a firearm In my pocket," whispered he, pulling up. "and I'm going lo
Ore it olT to relieve my feelings if you
don't explain here and now. Who. iu

"You mug! She's the original Sleeping Beauty. I'm eloping with her, and

"Pardon me, Jem," hi? sii.vb In his
gentlemanly wny, "if I don't quite see.

The poor old creature had baited, too.
three puces ahead of us nnd waited
while we whispered, with the moon;
light Hint slanted down Into the lane
whitening her bare neck nnd Hushing
on her jewels.
"One moment," I sold nnd stepped
forward to her; "you bad better take
off those ornaments here, my denr, und
give them to my servant to take cure
of. There's u carriage waiting for us
nt the end of the lane, and when he lias
stowed them under the sent we can
climb in und drive off—
"To the end of the world—to the vory
rim of It, my hero."
She pulled the gems from her enrs,
hair and bosom and handed them tu
Peler, who received them with u bow.
Next she searched In her pocket and
drew out n tiny key. Peter unlocked
the enso, nnd, having carefully stowed
Hie diamonds Inside, locked it again-,
handed back the key. touched his hat
and walked oft' toward the dogcart.
"Sly dearest lady." I begun, us soon
ns we were nlone between the high
walls, "if the devotion of a life"—
Her bare arm crept into mine.
"There is but n little lime left for us in
whicll to be happy. Year after year 1
have marked oil' the almanac; day by
day I have watched the dial. I saw my
sisters married and my sisters' daughters, nnd still I wailed. Bnch had a
man to love her und tend her, but none
had such tl man ns 1 would have
chosen. They were none like you, my
prince."
"No, I dure say not."
"Oh, bul my heart Is not so cold.
Take my band—It Is lirni nnd strong:
touch my lips—they nre burning"—
A low whistle sounded nt Hie top of
the bine. As I took her hands 1 pushed
her back, und, turning, ran for my life.
I suppose that ns I ran I counted folly
before her scream came, and then the
sound of her feet paltering nfter me.
She must have run like u demon, for
I wus less tliiiu ten yards ahead when
Peler cnuglit my wrist and pulled me
up on to the buck sent of Ibe dogcart.
And before George could t:et the horse
going her band clutched nt the flap on
which my feet rested. It missed Its
grasp and she never got near enough
again. But for half a minute I looked
Into Hint horrible face following us and
working with silent rage, nnd for half
a mile nt lenst 1 heard the patter of her
feet In the darkness behind. Indeed, I
can hear it now.

the fact was scarcely uoticeable,thanks

bad acquired, and when Ill's menus

"Catherine," she said lo tho maid,
"Major-1 mean Colonel Ewni't will bb

A moment after the maid held aside
the heavy plush portiere and n tall,
military looking mnn, with a flowing
gray beni'd and mustache, lilled up the
doorway.
"flood gracious—n beard ns well!"
Miss Baherley murmured, horror
stricken, as she caught up her fuu nnd
went to meet hint, holding It gracefully to her lips.
"Ah, major—colonel, I mean"—she
corrected herself agitatedly—"delighted

"Y*>u haven't changed In lhe lenst

no Idea what pleasure It Is to see you

"Uenlly?" she exclaimed after a
slight pause, cleverly simulated surprise in her tone.
"Y»i, It has always been In my
thoughts," ho rejoined eagerly, his
courage rising. "1 should have spoken
before I went nwuy, but do you remember remarking once that you never
intended to marry unless the mnn who
nsked you hnd something more to his
credit than n blinking account. Thnt
wos why I exchanged and went
abroad. I did think of writing when I
wus out there, but until these frontier
affuirs were quite settled I thought It
fairer uot to nsk you to He yourself to
me, ns If I'd beeu bit It might have
been n blow to you. Of course that
was taking for granted you cared a little for me." And lie concluded smiling
rather shamefacedly.
"Indeed!" She smiled also, feigning
astonishment.
"Now, confess, Colin, this Is not altogether a surprise to you. liven If It Is
—you do not lind It disagreeable?"
"Denr me—how strange!" she exclaimed hesitatingly, alter a slight
pause, still keeping her eyes llxed on
his face, while sho bit the tip of her
fun nervously.
Sbe broke the silence at last with a
little regretful sigh.
"Is tbnt nil?  It Is most Interesting."
"All, Colin," be sighed, "you nre Just
as tantalizing and slantl-olllsh ns ever
-but- I like you nil the betler for It."
Ami lie leaned forward with nu ndmlr-
Ing glance at the fair face and shapely
head, crowned with neat dark brown
coils.
"Yes. may people have told me the
same." she replied complacently, catching the end ef his senlcnce, nnd, noting
the unpreelnllve glnnro. she concluded
that he alluded to the modern style of
halidresslng she hnd adopted.
"But you needn't be staud-ofllsh with
an old—or—admirer," he udded quietly
and reproachfully.
"1—1 beg your pardon—what did you
Bay ?"
"Oh, nothing, nothing," ho responded hastily, fearing he bad been too precipitate. "What a charming room this
Is!"
"Now you must have some tea," she
said, after rather an awkward pause,
laying down ber fan, nnd moving to
the table. "Being nu old maid I'm
rather fussy, so you must not talk
while I'm making It—It distract* my
attention," she added with a forced little laugh.
He watched her with growing pleasure as hor lumds busied with the cups,
the lamp rays touching the gold In her
hair.
"It's like old times, watching you
make tea, Ceiia. I wish lt would be
my privilege always."
"I told you not to talk," she said
with playful severity.
"But I must. Don't be so tantalizing, dearest. I'm not to touch tea till
I've had your answer, till you've promised, in fact—" ills voice dropped to an
earnest whisper, and he crossed the
room to her side, "to be my wife."
She glnnced nt him bewildered.
"Er—er—In fact, of course, scarcely
In theory," she said vaguely.
"Colin," he exclaimed, "what on
earth do you mean ?"
A dend silence followed. She saw by
his face thnt something was -ivrong,
nnd her agitation Increased when he
commenced to pace restlessly about
the room, muttering to himself ln an
undertone:
"Ever since I've been abroad I've
lived and worked in the hope of one
dny winning you, but now lt seems ns
though"—
Sho looked up puzzled. "Whnt did
you Bay?" she asked desperately. ""I
did not quite cntch It, but lt Is your
own fault. I told you not to talk while
I mnde ten—two lumps of sugar, isn't
lt? You see, I've remembered the cor
reet number—and half the cream Jug-
you were always terribly greedy, col-
one!! There!" She handed him tlio
cup nnd caught up her fan. "Now you
must begin nil over again. I don't
think you've lost the spice of humor."
And she flashed a nervous little smile
over the top of the fan.
"Celia," he said slowly, raising his
Tolce till lt rang through the room,
"this Is uot a time for joking."
The anger in his tone nnd his hurt
expression frightened aud bewildered
her; with a gesture of despair she turned away.
"If only It hadn't been for the mustache!" she murmured, half audibly.
"Mustache!" he exclaimed eagerly,
hopefulness staring into his tone. "Is
that your only objection? How I wish
I hnd known before I came! But I'll
have It off directly."
Uo wns standing beside her again,
and now he rested his hand on her
shoulder; but she shrank from bis
touch nnd turned away, half crying
and wringing her hands.
"I thought I could have managed,
but I shalt have to tell. I can't go on
like tills," she sobbed.
"Tell me what? That there is some
one else?"
He turned abruptly away, and flung
himself lu the armchair, burying his
face In his hands.
"Just my luck," he said brokenly.
"But It's hard after all this time, and
now when It seemed all plnlu Balling
to hear thnt—thnt-I have .a rival.
But," reproachfully, "you needn't have
kept me so long In suspense, Celia."
A moment's silence followed. Then
she left her seat nnd walked to the
fireplace and stood looking down nt
him, toying nervously with her fan.
"I can't hear whnt you say," she said
at last desperately, flinging the fan
from her. "I should have told you—I
am deaf, but I couldn't bear to use my
ear trumpet just nt first, because I
thought you would regret having come.
I know men have a horror of deaf old
maids."
She laughed hysterically as she produced the trumpet from the little bag
at her side and adjusted It.
"It was just my silly pride," she continued quickly, "and I thought I could
manage with my fan. You see, It has
this tube In the center, which carries
the sound through my lips—and then—
I understand Up rending—If It hadu't
been thut your mustache conceals
yours"—
"Is thut all?" he Interrupted eagerly,
starting up and placing bis hands on
her shoulder. "There Isn't anybody
else?"
"Anybody else, where?" she asked,
bewildered.
"I mean any one you enro more for
than me—whom you intend marrying?"
"X—no—" sho faltered, the color rushing Into her cheeks; "but what an odd
question."
"Not nt all," he answered delightedly. "Can't you guess, Cclln, what I
hnve been nsklug you, or—" and his
eyes twinkled merrily—"shall I begin
all over again?"
But It wns scarcely necessary, for
though she blushed still deeper she did

The Draaen Game In Which Detective Bob Plnkerton Firmlly Took n
Hand nnd What Happened After
He Made Ulm Break.
Bob ninkcrton, the famous detective,
once told this story with grent relish:
"I was traveling from Chicago to New
York. We'd only been out from Chicago
for nbout half a dozen hours when my attention wns attracted by the peculiar
conduct of a party of four well dressed
ami somewhat larky young men in the
siiokiug compartment of the car on
which I was riding. From the beginning
of the journey I had noticed tlmt these
young chaps had been#observing me pretty strongly, and 1 caught u couple of
them pointing to me aud nudging each
other—I'saw the thing out-of the tail of
my eye—when the conductor approached
my seat and addressed me by name.
"Therefore wheu I happened to catch
Eight of a little game that was going on
among the four In the smoking compartment I kept them in good view, although
I didn't suppose they knew I was watching them. I saw that n quart bottle was
being passed around qpjong them pretty
freely. Now, there was nothing unusual
nbout thut, of course, but I Immediately
formed strong suspicions when I observed that three of them were only pretending to take their drinks of liquor out of
the glass the porter provided, while the
fourth, n young fellow who had a lot of
exceedingly valuable jewelry scattered
nbout his person, wns actually gulping
the liquor down nt a grent rate nnd was
obviously becoming foolishly intoxicated.
Now, it naturally struck me as a queer
thing, the cautions nnd furtive wny the
three young chaps emptied their glasses
Into the spittoon wheu the fourth young
fellow wasn't looking, nud in view of the
lutter's possession of so much fine jewelry it looked like a fair calculation that
they didn't menu any good to him.
"Finally, when the fourth man was
very much intoxicated, to Judge hy his
bo-Sterotts manner, I saw the three who
had been dumping their drinks tip each
-other the wink, and then oue of them,
after looking around with great furtive*
ness, pulled a small vial out of his vest
pocket.
"I am free to say that I possessed quite
a degree of inward excitement over Uie
prospect of nipping such n brazen piece
of 'knockout' work right during the accomplishment thereof. The young man
with the vial signaled to one of his pals,
and the pal poured out a stiff drink from
the fresh bottle which the porter had
just brought in. Then the young fellow
w'th the vial dropped ahout ten drops
therefrom into the glass of liquor. Now,
you might suppose that it was up to me
right then to 'cut in,' but It wasn't. A
man can't get the full punishment prescribed for handlers of 'knockout* drops
until he has actually Served the stuff to
his victim, nnd 1 wus so sore upon this
party of three robbers lhat I wanted to
have the best case possible against them.
So I kept my hand out of the business
until I could see the end of the play.
The youth who had used tho 'knockout'
drops handed tho doped glass of liquor to
the intoxicated chap who wns manifestly to be the victim of tbe three, and he
took it greedily and gulped it down. Then
he gradually censed his boisterous talk-
tug. rested his head back on the cushion
of his chair and, v. ith his mouth wide
open, apparently yielded to the effects of
the 'knockout' fluid.
"As soon ns he had succumbed—I saw
It alt through a glass pane in the partition lie!ween, the smoking compartment
and the body of the car—the three exchanged significant glnnees, and then
they leaned over their apparently unconscious, companion and began to strip him
of his jewelry.
"I reached the door of tho smoking
compartment In two jumps.
" Trolly coarse work, sons/ I said,
just showing tlft-m the gun 1 had in my
hnnd, but not levelling It at them, 'and I
am surprised thnt you should be so foolish as to tldnk that you could get nwny
witb the goods lu such a raw way. Now,
I've seen the whole game from tho beginning, and the three of you nre to con-
eonslder yourselves.corrniled, as perhaps
you know my name Is Plnkerton, nnd I
have the authority to put you under arrest.'
"The young fellow who was being robbed when I broke In slumbered on wiih
his mouth wide open, and the other three
looked terribly alarmed, Their faces got
red. and they begnn to reproach each
other.
" '1 told you he was Plnkerton,' one of
them snid bitterly.
MJI didn't want to get mixed up In this
job, anyhow,' said another.
" 'Even if Plnkerton wasn't on the
train you idiots ought to've known how
this train Is watched,' said the third.
"'Say, what are you going to do with
us?' nil three inquired of me at once.
" 'I'm going to take tlie bunch of you
off the train nt the next stop nnd make
complaint against you,' 1 replied, 'and 1
can give It to you pretty straight thnt

GOOD TIMES OF OLD.

___      Spoils the Fan.
"Did you ever think how complicated
good times are nowadays?" asked one
middle nged mnn of another. "Remember what good times we ased to hnvo
without nny previous spread or ceremony? Well, those days were worth I'ung
tn. When I watch my. children trying to
enjoy themselves, it positively makes me
tired, everything is so studied, so elaborate, so mechanical. N
"Tnke my daughter Grace, for instance. She receives nn invitation to nn

do? Does she act pleased and dance
around as ber mother would have done
tweuty-tive years ngo? No, indeed. 'Oh,
bother! What shall I wear? If I go, I've
Bltn'ply got to get a uew gown,' is what
she says, and for tlie next week she Is
breaking her neck to get the rig ready.
The affair conies off, nud she conies home
and half the time says she was bored to
death. The fault isn't with her, for the
next day a gang of her friends conies in,
nnd by scraps of conversation which drift
to my enrs I know thoy were ull bored.
She is nbout the average type of girl,
nud, no use talking, she isn't having the
fun her mother had. If she is Invited to
a really formal function, it's enough to
turn the whole house upside down. She
doesn't get any real pleasure out of it at
nil aside from the excitement either,
"It's the same with my son John. But
I won't go Into details ahout John; only

things, while if it's anything more pre*

A TALE OF MONTANA.
Involving   a   Traveler,   a   Hackman
and the  1.utter's Advice.
"Some time ago," said a Cleveland
man, "business carried me on a swinging
trip through the west. I was due to
make Helena, Mon., on a certain afternoon, nnd tho connection from Ogden
wns a bad one. We arrived at Butte
about 5 a. m., nnd the train for Helena
left there nt 0 o'clock from another station. Bed eyed nnd hungry, I descended
to the dreary platform and gathered unto
myself u hackman. He assured me he
knew of a good place where I could get
breakfast, nnd that part of his tale wns
true, for he drove me to n very good
ehophouse, where an excellent meal wns
served me. So good indeed wns the coffee thnt I lingeretl over it until he bade
me hasten lest I lose the train.   v
"As uo other train left thero for Montana's enpitnt city until late in the afternoon I did as I was bid. Ou the hack
wns my.stenmer trunk, nud soon the entire outfit drew up at the station pint-
form exactly four minutes before the
train was to start. As I alighted tho
hackman advised: 'Better get your ticket, enptaln, while I get the trunk down.
You haven't much time left.' Sound nd-
vice that, which I saw the force of and
hastened to tnke.
"Returning with tho pasteboard In my
hnnd, I wns surprised to find the hack-
man seated on my solitary piece of baggage. 'Here, you,' I remonstrated, 'look
lively therel 1 wnnt to get that trunk
cheeked!'
"Without moving ho replied: *You'd
better pny my bill tirst.  It's five dollars.'
"'What?' 1 gasped. 'I don't want to
buy the trap.1
" That's what It Is/ he made firm answer, nnd then he added: 'No pay, do        r ]
trunk check.  Babe?'
"With that he arose and stretched himself. He was a bit taller nnd a bit bigger
round, bnt I wasn't suro of the outcome.
1 felt I might, and then again I felt I
mightn't. He noted my hesitation and
took out his watch and turned the dinl
toward me. It wanted exactly one minute of train time. 'I've the same doubt,
captain,' he remarked quietly as he ran
his experienced eye up aud down my figure. 'You might do me or 1 might go
through you, but one thing's certain—
whichever way It came out you'd miss
that train.*
"This, too, was sound advice, and I
took it nud he five dollars, and tben, with
Ins willing nnd able assistance, both my
trunk nnd myself made tbnt train. Ten
miles from Butte a fallen bowlder blocked us, and there we tny all dny. Both
morning nnd afternoon trains rolled into
Helena that evening as ono. Ever since
1 hnve wondered if I had but known of
thnt bowlder's presence In advance
whether I would have taken the later
train in triumph or have gone to a hospital for repairs."
^ Dnffoonerr  In "Hamlet.**
The buffoonery once tolerated In provincial theaters is illustrated in nn anecdote set forth In the memoir of Bnrry
Sullivan, Wright, who wns the First
Grnvedigger, prepared himself to tnke
the house by storm by having incased
his person within a dozen or more waistcoats of all sorts of shapes and patterns.
When nbout to commence tho operation
of digging the grave for the "fair Ophelia," Wright begnn to unwind by taking
off waistcoat after wnistcoat, which
caused uproarious laughter among tho
audience.
Bi\f ns fast as he relieved himself of
one waistcoat Paul Bedford, the Second
Gravedi-ggcr. incased himself In the cast-
off vests, which increased tho salvos of
laughter, for as Wright waa getting thinner Paul grew fatter and fatter.
Wright, seeing himself outdone, kept
on tho remainder of the waistcoats nud
went on with his part quite crestfallen.

MAKE
THE KIDNEYS
Decide For Yourself By a Simple   Experiment if  You  Have
Kidney Disease.
Scores and hundreds of |nioplo who aro complaining almost dally of backache, pains.In the limbs, not
unlike rheumatism, and stinging, scalding sensations when urinating, do not know that they aro in reality
suffering from kidney derangements. Gradually they becomo thinner and weaker, experience more or less puf-
finesa under the eyes and swelling of the limbs, and feel chronic diseaso fixing itself upon the system.
It Is not necessary for you to undergo an exp«nsive examination to find out II tho kidneys ore diseased.
You can mako tho examination for yourself. Take a clean glass vessel and allow some urine to stand in it
for twenty-four hours. If at the end of lhat timo thero aro deposits ln the bottom of tho vessel you can bo
certain that tho kidneys are not in healthy working ordor. This test, accompanied by the symptoms referred to above, aro Indisputable evidence of kidney disease.

I (Special).—Pierre Lussier is a    farmer who like every other    husband-
'inur. has much work which must be
.done in its season.   Many of a (turner's  duties    will     not admit  of a

children    to   help him on the   farm,
and ns  vigorous and     trained arms
aro necessary, ho was feeling    very
downcast on account uf his Inability
and  weakness.
ITo had one of the worst forms of
Kidney Disease, and this reduced his
strength to that of a mere child. The
pain ho had to bear was very great,
and always seemed to come or. iiln
worse just at tho time that he had
some important work to do.
Ite had suffered   In this way    tor
.■er twenty years, sometimes !
sometimes worse, but always
and suffering, and constantly growing worse, till for tlie last two
years he was unable to do anything,
He decided to try a treatment of
Politic Kidney Pills, and from the
very lirst dose he began to improve,
After he had used eight boxes lie
wns well enough to work again, but
he kept on using the pills till now
he,is well mid strong.
For years lie could not walk a

"AdIuiiIs show* preat aptitude la learn*
ing things that are of peculiar interest to
them in the struggle for existence," snid a
gentleman from oue of the nearby parishes, "and I have been very much amused at times at the little things they do in
an effort to comfort themselves offd to
make life's burden as light as possible.
They are very astute at times.
''We have nu old bay horse which is
an expert when it comes to slipping tbo
bridle, and even since we hove discovered
his peculiar trick it is almost Impossible
to keep biin hitched on account of the
proficiency he has acquired by Jong practice. He is one of the best uatured horses
I ever saw, aud it is the easiest thing bi
the world to catch him. Really, he will
meet you half way In the pasture if he
thinks you are coming after him. He
probably does this because he delights in
slipping the bridle and getting away from
you and probably causing you to walk
several miles after sunset. For a long
time I could not understand the ease witli
which be would slip his bridle aud get
nwny.
"1 was always extremely careful about
the throatlateh and would buckle it up
no tight thnt it would seem almost.cruelty
to animals to force It any farther. In
spite of this precaution, in a short while
nfter the horse was latched he would slip
tbe bridle, leave it dangling from the post
and gallop playfully down the rood. Frequently I would hnve to walk miles in
order to get hack home. I linnlly concluded to make a closer study of the fellow in order to find out just how it was
he could slip his head through a throat-
latch that bad been buckled so tightly under his neck. I learned how it was. lie
hnd a way of swelling the muscles of his
throat and neck until there wns probably
a difference of several inches at tlie point
where the throatlateh circled his neck
near the head. He would keep his throat
in this abnormal condition until be was
hitched and the rider wns out of sight.

Why the Detrolter Could Sot Bay the
Farmer's A it pica.
It was a Detrolter who was hunting for
apples in northern Michigan, and, having
got track of something extra, he drove
out several miles to see tbe farmer. There
were apples in plenty, and tbe buyer
started in to do business. He was checked
up almost nt once, however, by the farmer, who said:
"Stranger, did yon tnke notice of my
daughter Hetty ut the house?"
"Why, yes, I. Bay a very smart looking
girl," was tlie reply. "If she Is your
daughter, I must congratulate yon. How
many barrels of Spies did you Bay you
had?"
"Yes; Hetty is a smart gal and a good
gal," mused tho farmer without reference
to the apple question. "There are nbout
six fellers around here who arc shining
up to Hetty."
"Yes; a girl like her Is never without a
lover," said the buyer. "She'll be stopping off before.you know It. I should say
you had at least twenty barrels of fall
Pippins."
"But Hetty's a-Iookln' a leetlo higher—
a leetle higher. She ain't satisfied to marry no fanner's hired man. Sho kind o'
feels thnt she belongs nmong the style.
Did you notice her walk?"
"I noticed that she had a very graceful
glide for a country girl. How many
Seek-no-furthers  do   you   think  you've
got'!"
"And her hair is done up same as they
wear it ia Chicago," chuckled the father
as he proudly straightened up. "Mcbbe
you didn't notice her feet, but she only
wears No. 4 shoes, and they've got high
heels on."
"Vest I see. But wbat about the apples? How many Greenings have you?"
"And Hetty's jest as good as she is pur*
ty. She has never caused us an hour's
trouble. If any one Is looking for a wife,
they might go a heap farther and fare
worse."
"But I'm not looking for one," replied
the "buyer. "I'm here to buy apples,"
"Vou dida't hear about Hetty, then?"
"No."
"And you didn't come out to get a loeh
at her?"
"No. I'm here to buy your apple crop." ■ -	
"Hetty would make some man a might/  thoy

"Yes; she's a fine girl, no doubt, but t
couldn't marry her If I wanted to. I've

"Oh, you havel Why didn't you say so
at once?"
"Because I didn't know that Jt made
any difference. Have you many Snows?"
"You can go right on, stranger—right

band.

Make the Mother's Life One of Cars
and Worry—How to Keep Baby
Healthy und Happy.
Indigestion is one of the moat
common diseases of infancy, and it
is also one of the most serious, for
unless it is controlled the constitution will be weakened, other diseases will find easy lodgement, und
tho child's whole future will be imperilled. At tho first sign of indigestion, or any trouble of the stomach or bowels, Baby's Own Talduts
should be administered. They act
With promptness and perfect safety
in strengthening the stomach and removing; the offending material. Mrs.
W. 0. Tefft, Murkham, says : "Up
to tlio time my baby was a month
old, ho was a perfectly health;
child. Then his stomach began to
trouble him. He looked pinched and
starved; his tongue was coated and
his breatli offensive. - He vomited
curdled milk, and was also constipated. After taking his food he
would scream with pain, and ul*.
though ho seemed always hungry
his food did him no good. Ho was
so restless nnd sleepless that I was
almost worn out. Medicine seemed
to do him no good until wo gave
him Baby's Own Tablets. I gavo
him the tablets and they helped bim
almost immediately, and in a very
short time ho. began to gain in
weight and is now rosy and healthy.
Baby's Own Tablets cured my baby
when nothing else helped him, and" I
would not be without them in the
house."
This is the only medicine for littlo ones that, gives an absolute guarantee of purity. Milton L. Horsey,
M.A . Sc, (McGill) one of the tie-bt
known analysts in America, says:—
"1 have made a careful chemical
analysis of Baby's Own Tablets. My
analysis bus proved that the TabhHs
contain absolutely no opiate or narcotic; that they enn be given with
por feet safety to tho youngest in-
,fant, and that they are a safe ond
effective medicine for the troubles

Its Symptom)- Mu.de Manifest By u

Taste in the Mouth and .Pains
Extending to the Shoulders.
From the Broekville Recorder.
Sufferers from liver troubles find
life one of almost constant misery,
growing worse and worse unless
prompt steps and the proper remedy
bu taken to restore the organ to Us
natural condition. Mrs. Josepn Le-
claire, of Brockvill , was such a
sufferer, but has been happily ie-
leased from the trouble by the only
medicine known to thoroughly ie-
storo this Important organ to its
normal condition, once disease hus
fastened upon it. To a reporter,
Mrs. Leclaire willingly gave her
story for publication. She said :—
"Fur a long time i suffered severely
from complications of the liver and
dyspepsia, I would awake in the
morning with pains under my shoulders and in my stomach. My tongue
was heavily coated, and 1 had a
horrible taste in my mouth, especially on urisiug in the morning. 1
was constipated, and at times my
head would aclje so badly that 1
could scarcely let it rest on the pillow. There wus such a burning sensation in my stomach at times that
it felt as though there was a coal ol
flro in it, The pain was especially
severe after eating, and for months
my life was one of misery. A friend
advised me to take Dr. Williams'
Pink Fills, and I did so. After
using tho lirst box, there wus a material improvement, and in the course
of a few weeks longer I felt that 1
was completely cured. My tons'io
was cleared, the bad tasto left my
mouth, tho pains disappeared, and I
am as well as ever I was. lieiine
taking tho pills I suffered from liron-
chilis at times,.but it has pover
sincj troubled me. I can recommend
Br. Williams' Fink Fills to anyone
who suffers as I did."
Jlr. Williams' Fink Pills restore
health and strength by mukimr new,
rich red blood, thus strengthening
every organ in tho body, 'ihe/ tie
nut act merely upon the 'lymptoms,
as ordinary medicines do, but go directly to the root of tho trouble. In
this way they cure such diseases ns
liver and kidney troubles, rheumatism, paralysis, St. Vitus' dance,
heart troubles, sick headaches, anaemia, and tho irregularities that
make tho lives of so many women
ono of constant misery. Do not bo
persuaded to take any substitute ;
see that, the full name "Dr.Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People" Is on
the wrapper around every box. If in
doubt, the pills will be sent post-
for Si!.50, by addressing the Dr.
