Wednesday night, W. R. Boss,
K.C, held what was perhaps one of
the largest meetings in this section
in Crahan's Hall. He spoke on
the railway question tuM used the
same stock argumonts we have been
treated to by speakers in favor of
thp McBride government-all through
the campaign. He was frequently
interrupted by several Socialists,
who apparently do not think that a
man can'represent! the Coal Company and the miner's whose interests often 'conflict,' as one of them
stated lifter the meeting in discussing the ' remarks' of the speakers,
'•'.!,No man can serve God and Mammoth." W. A. McDonald, of Vancouver, one of the "most fluent' platform spoakers in the province, foi-

fighter from a*,yay back, and won
many votes by "His fearless and unbiased attitude: His clear, "clean
cut, expressions were loudly applauded, 'i*iid outside some ' half-
dozen soreheads, there were few in
the hall whose ideas on the questions
discussed were not in sympathy with
the speaker. As it was there were
many who came forward after the
meeting and expressed themselves
favorably to the liberal cause, and
prominent amongst them were
some Socialists, Who acknowledged
their error and. pledged their support to the Liberftlff.' This light,
now on, is one 'that, ptrms Up the
cockles of the heart. 'Its an okl
time battle and the youn-Jstprs who
are pulling their first rote are receiving an education they will never
forget. Liberal ideas and views are
more strenuously enunciated than
they have been for years and
the Grand Q\d Party has awakpned
to the fact that it is time to be up
and doing. The returns on the 25th
will plainly show th(|t the principles
of Liberalism have received thp support of the vast majority of the yotes
ahd that Fisher from Fernie will
be Fisher to Victoria, and the sweep
of the Liberal broom will bind him
into the cabinet, whose bead will be

Mf. Bowser's Bluff
In the railway policy of. the McBride Administration,
soys the Vancouver World, one'feature appears'conspicuous,
because it is the point froni wliich it is proposed to make
connection between this new transcontinental railway and
Vancouver Island. It is called English Bluff. Many people heard of it for the first time lis part of {his railway policy;
many people believe that it is not ah essential part of the
schqine of construction and that, in the remote event of the
endorsation of the policy by the electors, the bluff would be
dropped out of- it, in favor of some other point more practical.
Mr. Bowser's bluff, however, is of another sort, resembling
the other only in respect that whereas English Bluff fronts
the inrolling Pacific, Mr. Bowser's bluff rises gaunt and un-
picturesque,' confronting ;(nd oppogiqg n whoje flcean p{ %-t,
a whole decade of practical experience of Bowserism. At
Fernie, the other day, Mr. Oliver offered, to "put up" $100
against Mr. W. R. Ross, that in the Provincial contract with
the G.T.P,, dated Feb. 10th, 1(108, there is not one word to
the effect that "white" Jabor should be employed on the construction of tlio road, or that white workmen's wages should
bo paid. Mr. Bowser, following the i rules of the game of
bluff, does not take the bet; he merely raises the stakes from
$100 tb $1000. Wo do not comment upon the soemliness or
unseemliness of a question of great sociological and industrial
importance being made the subject of a bet, but we do point
to Mr. Bowser's method. Ho raises the stakes, in the hope
Qf bluffing, or beggaraiig, his opponent. If he would leave
tbem at the reasonable figure nl which ho started, not only
the member for Delta but a few oilier poor folk such as newspapermen wuiilil cover that bet.   From Revelstoke to Van-

asked a small urchin who lay onJM
grass just across the walk and stared
mtentjy, "Why   don't  you   go   and
Pl"Don't wanter," the boy replied.
"But it is not natural," the old gen,
tleroan insisted, "for a boy to be so
quiet.   Why don't you run about

fellow answered. "I'm just waitin

Mothers will find the following state-
ment of more than passing interest,
showing, as it does, how Zam-Buk
ends the skin diseases of children,
even when ordinary remedies have
competely failed. Mrs. C. W. Bower-
bank, of 126 Denison Avenue, Toronto,
"Not long ago my baby'B face broke
out in an eruption. The spots would
crack and be very irritating and sore.
At other times they itched fearfully,
and caused the child to scratch and
rub thus making the. sores very inflamed and painful. I tried all sorts of
ointments and salves but they somehow did not seem able to remove the
trouble. Zam-Buk proved very different and a few applications gave the
child relief. The sores are now healed
"Since that time iny little daughter
has had occasion to use Zam-Buk for
skin trouble. She broke out in blotches on her hands and arms, and in her
case also Zam-Buk effected a cure.
"We now keep Zam-Buk handy as a
household balm, and do not intend to
be without it.
"Not only for skin diseases, but for
cuts, burns and bruises, it is a fine
remedy. The other day I burned my
hand badly. An application of Zam-
Buk seemed to take the Are out of it
at once, and it soon healed. In the
course of my experience I have tried
pretty nearly all the salves and ointments obtainable, but there is nothing
to come near Zam-Buk."
Zam-Buk is Nature's own healing
balm, being composed ol pure herbal
essences. It is a sure cure for pimples
and eruptions, eczema, • ring-worm,
ulcers, cuts, burns, bruises, poisoned
sores, chronic wounds, bad leg, piles,

Belt Hat Almost Urillmit*d
Wealth For Farmers.
Samuel J. Martin of Kemptville,
who has returned from an exploratory visit to the region along the
Transcontinental Railway east and
west of Frederick House river, speaks
in high terms of the quality of the
land there, says The Census and
Statistics' Monthly". The soil is a
rich clay and much of it is naturally
well drained, standing well above the
streams which unwater it. The timber is chiefly spruce and jack pine,
60 to 76 feet high and as straight ai
gun-barrels. The spruce is usually
10 to 18 inches in diameter and the
jack pine 6 to 12 inches, and the
wood is so dense that it can only be
traversed safely along the banks oi
streams or on the surveyed lines,
when flanking parties may be thrown
out on either side within hearing
distances. In this way the country
may be explored securely and this
was the plan taken by Mr. Martin
and his party, who located about 19
lots for settlement near Frederick
House river. The trees have no tap
roots, and the stumps are readily
cleared off with a team and chain
when the trees are felled. Mr. Mar
tin brought home some fine samples
.of wheat, barley, oats, clover and
; timothy ■ whieh had grown this year
'from grain scattered at the feeding
places for horses employed on railway
construction, and he is sanguine thai
under proper cultivation these grains
and grasses could not be excelled in
I quality elsewhere in Canada. The
wheat shows 30 grains per head,
l plump and well matured, and the
,six-rowed barley 60 grains, and the
j timothy grows four to five feet high
with heads ol seed six inches long.
.Land growing such samples is eold
by the Government at fifty cents pet
iacre, and it is now said that the extent of the clay belt is not less than
20,000,000 acres which the railway
•traverses from east to west. Tha
town of Cochrane, at the junction ol
the Temiskaming and Northern and
the Transcontinental Railways, which
was surveyed last year, has now -.0(1
dwelling houses, 15 stores, two banks
and a school house where 80 pupils
are registered. This town is six miles
cast of Frederick House river, whicb
flows northward to join the Abitibi.
A Story From Japan.
Those who peruse the joke columns
.of the newspapers have perhaps read
stories relating to a curious and interesting custom in Japan—the scrubbing of the backs of guests, while in
the bath tub, by the landladies ot
hotels. But these tales have been
-pretty generally set down as being
product* ol the peculiarly active imagination possessed by jokesmiths "in
general. Here, however, is a tale that
is true.
■ The other evening at a meeting of
the Men's Association of St. Anne's
Church, Toronto, a letter was read
from Rev. R. M. Millman, now in
•Japan, who has a wide circle of
friends and acquaintances in this
country, and who was curate nt St.
Anne's before entering the mission
'field. One portion of the letter very
much amused the young men assembled. It read thus:
! "To tell a true story. A young man
came out here recently to teach. His
friends wanted to have some fun with
him, so they asked him if he would
not like a bath. He said he would.
Then they told the landlady that this
newcomer was particularly fond of
having his back rubbed (which I suppose was perfectly true); They furthermore told her that if he seemed to
object it would be because she was
not rubbing hard enough. Anyway,
the unsuspecting victim got into the
tub, and scarcely had he done so,
when in walked the landlady and began to rub. Of course he was Bhocked
and strongly objected to the proceeding. But he did not know a word of
Japanese, nor did she know a word of
English; so the harder he talked in
English the harder she rubbed in Japanese, till at last she felt her duty
had been done, and Bhe left him a
cleaner and a wiser man.'",
Why Sianfield'slJse Nova Scotia Wool
THE chief reason is because the Stanfields
have never found any other wool that
makes Underwear so peculiarly suited-
to Canadians.
The salty, ocean breezes and healthful
climate, coupled with the rich grazing, give
Nova Scotia wool a quality which  is  not
found anywhere else.   '
Nova Scotia wool is perfectly blended.
It is soft and smooth, yet staunch and
strong. ■ It "can be spun like silk'and wears
almost like steel. Garments, knitted of this
fine wool, give the desired warmth and are
not heavy or bulky.
It is no exaggeration to say that the
Stanfields get the pick of the Nova Scotia wool.
The founder of these mills did much to develop
the sheep-raisirtg industry throii-^iont the
Maritime Provinces. The farmers saved their
best wool for him, and continue to send their
high grade wool to the Stan-field mills.
Then, too, this wool reaches the mills in the best possible condition. There
are no long railroad hauls—no lengthy journeys in the holds of tramp steamers.
The wool is shipped direct to Truro as soon as sheared. Experts sort, clean
and make it ready at once for its trip of transformation into Stanfield'*
Unshrinkable Underwear.
Stanfield's Underwear is made by the only process which takes the shrink
out of the wool before the garments are knitted.
The value of this discovery—made by the founder of the Stanfield Mills-
is shown by the growth of this business, which is now capitalized at
?750,c*oo.oo and employs over 300 operatives.
Stanfield's Unshrinluble Underwear ii made in  3  standard weights— dj_l
Light (Red Label), Medium (Blue Label) and Heavy (Black Label) and <* "^
17 other weight! and qualities to suit the needs and requirements of every
nun and woman.

C.P.R. In Strathcona.
The C.P.R. will have a direct line
via Wetaskiwin between Strathcona
nnd Winnipeg in operation by the
lirst of November. This was the information which Premier Rutherford
received while In Winnipeg a few
days ago at the western office of the
C.P.R. At the present time the company is hurrying to completion the
unfinished portion of the line east nt
Hardisty, which will connect with
Saskatoon. When this is completed
it iB stated that the line of the Canadian Pacific between Winnipeg and
Striithcona will be shorter than that
of the Canadian Northern.
Premier Rutherford says that it it
expected that the C.P.R. will also
start shortly the line from either
Camrose or Sedgewick to Strathcona,
which it will enter from the southeast. The completion of this line will

Earth Would Explode.
You probably learned at school that
sn atom was a particle of matter so
minute as to admit of no division;
1 hut science has learned much since
Sir J. J. Thomson, at the meeting
of the British Association delegates
at Winnipeg, pointed out that the
atom is now known to be a comparatively large and complex structure,
and that unite of negative electricity,
called corpuscles, have a volume,
compared with that of an atom, such
ns a speck of dust has compared with
the volume of a large lecture-hall.
But these corpuscles aro to be
found in every atom of every substance, and the energy they contain'
is so great that a little over a grain
of hydrogen from their presence has
an amount of energy greater than
that developed by the burning ol ten
tons of coal.

Fisherman Regard Them as a Boon
to Mankind—Mr. Frank Banfield
Tells How They Cured His Backache.
Garnish, Fortune Bay, Nfld. (Special).—Among the fishermen here, who
through expoBure to wet and cold are"
subject to those pains and aches which
come to diseased Kidneys, Dodd's Kidney Pills are looked upon as a positive
boon to mankind. They ore never
tired of telling how their Backaches
an 1 their Rheumatism vanished before
the great Kidney remedy.
Among many others Mr. Frank Ban-
field, after years of suffering, has
found relief in Dodd's Kidney Pills,
and here is what he is telling his
friends :—
"I find Dodd's Kidney Pills the best
medicine for Backache I have ever
used. I only used two boxes and they
cured me of Backache I hnd had for
five years. It started through a strnin.
My father's back also bothered him,
and he got some relief from one pill 1
gave hijn.   They were too precious to
?ive him more. All persons suffering
rom Bnckachc should use Dodd's Kidney Pills."
Why do Dodd's Kidney Pills cure
Backache? Simply because Backnche
is Kidney ache, and Dodd's Kidney
Pills positively cure all Kidney aches
and ills. This has been proved in
thousands of cases in Canada. If you
haven't used them yourself ask your

For aoft materials, these gathered
sleeves, with their loose, limply hanging puffs and pretty shoulder oaps,
are most charming and suitable, and,
as they possess a certain aesthetic

favored by thin women. Truth to tell,
the thin woman has It still all her own

who Is expert with her needle will find
In msny e new garment of sensible
nature more than one euggestlon for
making over old clothes.
Except for the sleeves, which ars
smaller than then, many a coat repeats the lines of two winters or more
ago, so If there Is a loose coat In
good condition on hand It may be neo-
essary only to alter the arm portions.
Tha Jereey-top dresses likewise offer
hlnte for tne reviving of old gowns,
for If there le a pleated skirt of handsome silk or cloth in tb* wardrobe It
will be eaey enough to match the
color with the epun etocklng-llke

The group of models displayed today auggest some of the mid-Autumn
phases In gowns, coats and eleevee.
and any one or ali of them may be
confldently followed by the home eewer.
The medium figure le coneldered In the
measurements given for material; •.«.<&
before I go any further pray Iff. r»e
assure my readers again that > shall
be glad to answer any quesKoiis concerning dress In any department.
Figure A. Thle prince*, gown, If
trimmed elaborately as shou-r-. Is suited
to any handsome silk a- cloth, while
a plain back an/, tttyy. not. a elmpler
material may revoive It Into something
for overy-day wear. For since the
prlnceee Is so popular, tt Is vain to
suggest that the smartneee of th* etyle
ehould confine Its use to the best frock.

house. er,- <C there le a long coat to

But Henrietta and cashmere constitute, of course, more reaeonable materials for a dress which requires as
much work ae this, and since braiding
promises lo continue Its vogue Suoh
stuff* could V* treated at the front
to soutache instead of with the lace
here used. In the material plotured.
the frock makes a most satisfactory
dress with which to finish the eeaaon,
and. If liked, the dress mar be entirely
iintrlmmed and still look well, for the
out nowadaya is everything.
vWlth a 24-Inch material eleven yards
ef goods would be required for the
gown, and If th* material le double
width only elx yard* would be needed.
Figure B. This comblnetlon of fussy
bodice and yoke eklrt le eo euggestlve
of antiquated modee that tt eeeme hard
to believe tbat Madame Mode Intends
to present It ae eomethlng entirely
new. But such te the case, and If th*
out-up effect of the dress le too trying for many flgurea. for other* It
would be smart and flne to a marked
degree. The bodice or eklrt could b
used separately or oomblned, as ehown,
to compoee a frock for dreaay afternoon or semi-dress evening eervlce.
and In either oaee any delicate wool,
pretty silk or veiling would be a unliable material.
For a young woman of angular type
the division made by the yoke and
trimming of the skirt would help to
auggest less height while the puff
sleeves and elaborate front of the
bodice offer a very graceful disguise
for thinness. Since sleevee are now
eo much a matter or separate conelder.
atton, the pretty puff effects may be
accepted as suitable for a emart Indoor
bodice In any etyle.
As pictured, the dress Is made of
French silk cashmer* with braided
bands and a comh'etatlon of leov for
the bodice.
Figure C. rtuch a coat aa this one
can be utilised for motoring, chopping,
travelling, etormy weather, etc., and If
topped as In the Illustration with a
smart and appropriate hat, the garment
Is suitable for any walking uee. The
coat le made of diagonal coating, with
a military collar of velvet and buttona
tr match. Modish motor ooats In thle
shape are sometimes made of plaid
wools In striking colors, but for all
■round use the coat le best In a single
tone and dark color. The model le a
very easy one for the home eewer to
follow, as the double-breasted fronts
are fitted chiefly by ihe ehoulder darts,
and the back of the garment may be
entirely tn one plea*. A three-quarter
cut In ihi* strje le aleo premlaslble.
t*-.<.«gn the coat Is definitely emarter
and more useful  when full length.
As a double width goode cuts to
better advantage, I would auggeet buy
Ing a 44 or US-Inch material, when, for

would be required.

Rosamond Lee walked slowly down

Tbe crooked piazza, whjcji followed
tbe outline of ■ the old house, was covered wltb Virginia creeper, even now
turning to brilliant scarlet and gold,
in one corner whew the vines, hung
' WW and fori*a<*4,a curtfIn were a long

She bnd tired, of reading and, was
sitting balf drowsy with Bleep when a
step on the plassa roused her. Never
before had' any one trespassed on her
chosen retreat. •
_ She parted the vines and peeped
through to dlEcoveifa man's tall form
bent to peer Into the,balf drawn shades
-■■ of the long windows. He straightened
op again, and .she saw that his Clothes
were grajr arid dusty and that white
dnst powdered, bis dark balr. He waa
\ mopping bis forehead vigorously wltb
a handkerchief, and she noticed tbat
his bunds were bronzed by exposure to
the sun.
That the' man' was a burglar Rosamond hud not a doubt. Her heart almost stopped- beating when be glanced
carelessly toward ber vine'covered retreat before he Bnt down on the top
step to light o pipe.  ■
"He's wondering how to get ln,"
mnrmured Rosamond to herself. "It
only I were brave enough 1 would go
out and frighten him away, bnt I am
fearfully afraid of burglars, and yet If
be sbould break In and steal some of
Mrs. Phillips' pictures I Would feel
dreadful, because 1 have enjoyed ber
hospitality unasked." She smiled
. thoughtfully an. then sat very quietly.
Presently she dropped a book on the
floor and rustled nut of her retreat
wltb a haughty expression on her
swe°t face. The stranger Jumped to
bis feet and pulled off bla gray cap.
"1 beg your pardon," he stammered.
"1 didn't know nny one was around."
Rosamond   fixed  him  with  a  cold
stare while she mentally decided that
„ he was too good looking to be engaged
(        In such a nefarious pastime as burglarising unoccupied country houses.
She lifted her pretty brows Inquiringly. "You wished tb see some one?"
"Why—er—so. I didn't expect to see
any one bere.  I thought tbe place was
vacant," he stammered, knocking his
- pipe against tbe railing ahd stuffing It
into Ws pocket.
"It Is not vacant I am bere," said
Rosamond bravely.
"So I—er-see," with an air of chagrin.
"The bouse Is well protected."
"I uni gliid of thut," he said heartily.
Kosuiuoud Imuglned bis tone was
sarcastic. ••Perhaps you wished to see
my husband," she said In a wavering
The man started violently, and his
eyes forsook tier face and dropped to
the ground! "Of covin It would be a

Rosamond edged closer to the steps

the wall that divided the place from

would telephone to the village for assistance, and thus the burglary would
be prevented.
She thought she heard swift steps
behind her, and sbe renewed her speed
towurd the wall. Her heart was beat-
Ing almost to suffocation as she stepped on a loose stone. She uttered a
terrified Cry as the stone slipped and
ibe fell to the ground.
Now she heard swift steps In reality as tbe Btranger crossed tbe turf and
bent anxiously above her.
"I hope you have not hurt yourself,"
be said gravely.
"I have sprained my ankle," admitted tbe girl with white lips.
"Whnt were you trying to do—not to
■cale tbe wall?"
"Why? Was your husband over
A red flush crept to her brows.
"Yes." she said.

He stopped awkwardly. '
"I haven't any busband," sbe said
recklessly. "You see,- I've been In the

I Italy In 1854 or 1855 and placed In tbe
! city ball  bere?   That Is a question
which several members of a generation
wblch is Able to recall events or a half
century ago  bave been asking eacb
other recently. The statue, which was
very much admired by all who saw It
bas not been seen since tbe war and
has been practically forgotten. It appears, by all except a handful of people, none of whom knows certainly Its
fate.   '
The statue was msde In Rome by the
American sculptor Powers. It represented 'Calhoun' standing, wearing a
Roman senator's toga. In his left
hand, which was uplifted, was a scroll
representing "Truth, Justice and the
Constitution." The right hand of tbe
figure was painting toward the scroll.
Tbe statue cost. It Is stated. $10,000.
The statue was shipped from Rome
to New York. In transit, tt Is said, one
of tbe arms was broken Just below the
shoulder, and' under the direction of
Mr. Powers It was repaired In this city

A curious source of wealth Is reported by tbe French consul at Mongtze,

The Wood originally was a pine forest,
which the earth swallowed In some

{Famous Dramatist and Novelist,
Whose Wile Fell Iii Love With Gil-

Utmost Chivalry In His Unhappy
Domestic Affairs—Has Given Competency to His Unfaithful Spouse.
Not for years has the world of literature and' drama experienced such
a shock as when the news went abroad,
recently, that Jumes M. Barrie had in-i
stituted a suit against his wife for ix-\
vorce. Even to his closest friends who1
were aware that -his' domestic horizon was not unclouded it came as a.
complete surprise while the thousands:
to whom the Scotch, author and playwright stands for all thai ia finest in
literature were, incredulous. It was
difficult, somehow, to associate this
shy, high-minded genius of Thrums,
whose aversion to notoriety amounts,
to a perfect passion, with the idea ot
divorce. • '-". •
In 1908, Mr. Barrie permitted Gilbert Cannan, a young-author, to occupy a cottage .which -the novelist
owns at Farnham. Later he discovered
that lira. Barrie ant) Cannan were in
love and, that they were, guilty of misconduct. He offered tp forgive Mrs.
Barrie if she would break on her relations with the younger man, but
Bhe refused. She pleaded with her
husband to be set free. Mr Cannan

Water-id Butter.
An Ingenious fraud In the butter line
wis brought to light recently In England. In that country the amount of
moisture In butter Is limited by law
to 111 per cent. Australian and New
Zealiinr" butters, on tbe other hand,
Usually contain only 8 per cenf of water. Taking advantage of tbls fact,
several Arms Imported large quantities nf tbese colonial butters, to which
8 per cent of wnter wns then added,
thus bringing them down to the British standard. As the added water naturally cost nothing and the product
was sold ut the current butter price, a
substantial profit was. msde.

London. Since her marriage in 1894/
she has not been on the stage.
It wns inevitable that rumor should.
st once name Mr. Barrie's second wile,
Pauline.Chase, the American actress,
whose rapid rise to fame aa "the girl1
tn the pink, pajamas," was sensational, has been named aa the probable
successor. Miss Chase, who is the
daughter of a Dr. Bliss, of Washington, was regarded by Mr. Barrie as
the ideal Peter Pan. She appeared
in tbe London production of Mr. Barrie's play of that name. So great a
favorite of Mr. Barrio and his wife has
this young actress been that she has
come to be known as their adopted -
daughter. The Barries have no children. Miss Chaae is remarkably beautiful as well as talented. Twice she
hns been commanded tn play before
the King and Quun at England, an
honor indeed for a girt who went to
London six years ago us a chorus girl.
Barrie denies thut his suit for divorce in any way concerns! Miss
Chase and even the most malicious,
gossip has not dared insinuate that
he instituted, the suit in order thatS
he might be free to take another wife.
Those who have been closest tb the
couple are firm in stating that Barrie'

"We're time enough yet to tnke a
look at the city from the top of tbe Se
curlties building. It's worth seeing,
you know."
Prudence should bave vetoed tbe suggestion, Por the longer half of tbe
blissful afternoon Viola bad been aware
tbat Raymond's eyes were saying mora
tban they sbould. and tbat their mnte
eloquence was singularly sweet and
satisfying, Considering the fact tbat
she was as good as engaged to another
man, discretion counseled flight. A
voice within, an authoritative voice,
cried out that at tbe best the day
would soon be over and urged ber to
make, the most of it
Viola compromised. "Mr. Raymond
suggests our getting a view of the city
from tbe top of one of the skyscrapers," she said, turning to her out of
town guests. "If yon are not toe
tired"- And ber heart leaped at the
promptness of tbelr protests. 1
She walked beside Raymond silently,
glad that be, top, seemed to have nothing to say. Sbe was frightened to find
herself clinging bo fiercely to tbe joy
of that afternoon together. He bad
come upon tbem quite by accident, but
Viola knew that but for ber be would
bave lifted bis bat and gone bis way.
Tbe gladness tbat leaped to ber eyea
" at the sight of blm, the tremor ln ber
voice as she spoke bla name, had
been his undolng-snd hers. They hac"
lancbed and token a drive along the
boulevards. Viola's country cousins
bad had the time of their lives. And
now tbe. western sky was red. bnd tbe
time for saying goodby was near,
Tbey stood looking down upon tbe
■ city; Raymond, as ln duty, bound
pointed ont tbe object! of Interest
Tbe country cousins hung upon bit
■ words and declared that they would
hot bare missed tbe slgbt for anything. As for Viols, sbe bad no eyes
for the crawling streets between the
' steep cliffs of brick and stone nor foi
the crawling creatures far below. Bra
aeply she feasted ber eyes upon blm.
He turned suddeuly and looked lnte
ber eyes, and his own caught fire. A
moment later they were standing together In an angle of tbe roof, sheltered from tbe view of tbelr companions. The noise of tbe city below their
' seemed fsr away.
Raymond broke tbe spell by a down-
ward gesture, "I wish It 'were all.
"You mean tbe whole town? Wbal
greediness.*" abe laughed.
"So tbst I could give It all to yon."
"Thank you. but I'm not ambitious
to be a plutocrat Of course oue must

"Is It?" His eyes challenged bers.
"Oh. don't! You make It so bard fot

roof, ind be followed slowly. Wben be

"They're gone!" she gasped.

sharply and met questioning ber gazf
wltb a blank stare. "We're locked .if

laughed hysterically he added In baste
"Don't be frightened. It wilt be very
easy lo attract some one's attention."
Hslf an'bour later, flushed and dripping wltb perspiration as a result.ot
bis fruitless exertion, be acknowledged his mistake. "Your cousins must
bsve thought we bad gone down be-
fore tbem. But after tbey get home
nnd we fall to make our appearance It
will of course occur to somebody tbat
we're still up bere. And. tbe only
tblng to do Is to resign ourselves tc
wait wltb what patience we can muster."
Sbe looked at blm reproachfully, but
he did not meet ber eyea. He sat
some distance'from ber. staring moodl
ly at the roof. Furtively Viola put
back her veil and smoothed ber balr.
Apparently ber appearance was to blm
a matter of complete Indifference. Hi
never turned hla eyes.
Her sense of resentment found voice
at last. "Are you going to lit here tn
absolute silence? Haven't you anything to ssy?"
"I bave plenty to say, but I can't
aay It without taking advantage ot tbe
A long silence; then Raymond fell
tbe slipping of a small band down bis
sleeve "I rather think, Phil," said s
tremulous voice, "that I want you to
take advantage of tbe situation."
Help was long In coming. As the
darkness fell Viola drew closer, and
ber hand stole Into his of Its own accord.
It wns a nlgbt without a stsr. snd
for that reason It was tbe more startling when suddenly a blinding Illumination lit up the space where tbey sat.
Viola shrieked and hid ber face on hei
lover's shoulder.
■Only a searchlight dearest  Rather

Viola blushed In bis arms. "Phil,
lo you suppose anybody—saw?"
The youug mau smiled, "Perhaps,''
le acknowledged, "ln fact little girl,
I rather hope somebody did,"
Fifteen or twenty minutes later the
sound of approaching footsteps told
dieu tbat release waa at bund. Raymond shouted. Tbere was a sound of
i key turning ln tho lock. A grinning
policeman and the watchman of tbe
julldlng confronted tbem. Expansions were exchanged. The .elevator
lad stopped running at fi o'clock, and
thf two young people descended tbe
■ndless flights of stairs as blithely aa
1 they were walking on air.
Viola's home was in an uproar. Tbe
itory brought by the country cousins
had aroused grave suspicions, which
Viola's motber explained as she clung
to ber daughter.
"It couldn't have happened at a more
unfortunate time. To begin wltb, Mr.
Pickering was annoyed. He makes
inch a bobby of punctuality, you
know. And tben wben Leonard and
Bessie csme In"—
Sbe raised ber bead from Viola's
shoulder and looked sharply at tbe
young man wbo bad escorted ber
daughter home. Raymond bore her
scrutiny In silence. It was Viola who
prompted her Impatiently.
"Go on, mamma. When Leonard and
Bessie came In"-
"It was. of course, entirely absurd,"
declared Viola's mother persistently,
addressing herself to Raymond, "but
one must make allowances for a lover's natural jealousy. When Leonard
and.- Bessie said. that you bad been
with, tbem all afternoon and that you
and Viola had suddenly disappeared
the poor man jumped to the conclusion
tbat you hsd—eloped."
Tbere was an impressive silence,

"Of coarse we .must explain at once."
Viola's motber. continued. "Would It
be better for yon to phone- him, Viola,
or will you send him a note? Perhaps
ypn had better phone blm and say you
are sending tbe note. You see. it Is important tbat tbe matter should be
cleared np without delay.'.'
"I don't know tbat It's worth while
to make explanations, mamma," sbe
said. "It la true 1 didn't bave any Intention ot eloping: but, juat the same,
I'm going to marry Phil."

Difference   Between   Suffragette   and

In response to the repealed and numerous Inquiries as lo whnt 'may lie

mil tbe suffragist It may he well at
this lime lo define tbe difference.
Botb nre working for the cause at
Issue, but. while tbe suffragist plods
along In the beaten track made by tbe
great pioneers of tbe movement and
contents herself wltb methods conservative, the suffragette Is the product
of the modern perlisi. She is up to
dute In manner und method.
The suffragette Is militant She Is
awake to present conditions .and employs methods whlcb are In keeping
with those conditions, realizing the
helplessness of thai-Important, tbougb
outclassed, part of tbe people-tbe women.
Tbe suffragette, further, realizes tbe
Ineffectiveness of tea table and drawing room chat, of Indoor meetings
where tbe participants ire mainly
those who are believers In suffrage,.
And, furthermore, the suffragette Is
conscious of the necessity of converting tbe musses—all tbe people—and
therefore goes to Ibe people direct in
the streets, on the highways and byways, and holds open air gatherings
wltb able s|ieakers to address tbe
crowds. So does tbe suffragette spread
the gospel of woman suffrage Indiscriminately nnd effectively.   ..'        *
And still further does she. recognize
the necessity for recruiting and enlisting the men—the present voters.
They alone can make woman suffrage
possible, says Mrs. Sofia M. Loebin-
ger In the American Suffragette. The
voters must bring pressure' to bear
upon their political bosses, who.-in
turn - must Instruct the legislators
.whom they have placed In office. It
Is love's labor lost to send large delegations to the legislature each year.' ,

She Is too sensible to be stung by
liny criticism, whatever moy.be Ihe
source, and simply follows along the
path of duty lu her own wny.

Our girls are accustomed to amusing

weighing of tbe question of wby tbey

The worry bablt Is one that grows

Whatever yon do don't say, "I can't

j Two  Methods by Which Only Those
j Whs Know May Resd.       . **■
Professor Gross of Germany has discovered and made public a simple
method of Invisible writing Which has
been used extensively by prisoners for
communicating with their friends without the knowledge of the authorities.
The; information Is of interest and
value. You simply take a sheet of ordinary writing paper, moisten It well,,
lay It flat on a piece Of glass or other
very hard and smooth surface, lay a
dry sheet of paper over It and then
write your message on the dry sheet
with a hard pencil.
Then destroy tbe dry sheet and let
the moist paper dry In the free'air (not
beatedi and you will not notice anything has ever been written on It On
moistening this sheet again; however, -
the writing, shows, very plainly In
white, and tbe operation can be repeated any number of times. The explanation' Is tbat the pressure of tbe
pencil on the damp paper makes It
more compact so thst when wet the
writing becomes translucent.
Another simple kind of secret writing can be done wltb ordinary lemon
juice. Merely write with a clean pen. *
using lemon Juice instead of ink, and
when It Is dry It Will be* Invisible.
When' you hold' the writing/ over a
lamp, however, It quickly develops so
you can read It Chtldren can have a
goo. deal of fun making such experiments as these, which "are very helpful |n getting them Interested in scientific and other practical matters.—The

Curious Insect That Exists In Faraway
■ New Zealand.;.
In New Zealand there Is a very curious glowworm. The first Idea about t
this Insect was that It turned Ibto it
kind of beetle. Afterward It proved,
to be the" larva, or grub, of a fly.
Its light Is seemingly g|Ven It to attract small Insects, 'which are Its' food.
and these are ajcuttd by means of a -.

Thli web Is place. In a niche among
rocks or trees and has a central
thread, from wbleb. run smaller
threads to tbe sides of tbe opening.
Upon several of the lower threads
tbere are usually a number of glole •
ulea that rmen)ble tiny silver beads,
but what Is tbe use ot these Is .uncertain. Upon tbe middle thread the grim
sits. If startled It glides away Into it
bole It bas for a' biding place. The
light comes from.the binder part nt
the body, and the grab can display or
darken tbls is It chooses.
On damp, warm nights it Is brightest, and It la Dot visible wben the
weather la cold nor, of course, during
the day. ' -   . .
Having reached Its full size, the
grub becomes a chrysalis, being fix-
tened flrmly to Its web, A faint light
comes from the chrysalis now and.
tben. When the fly comes out, that
also bas a faint light, only balf a*
bright as tbat of tbe grab. What It
feeds upon Is unknown.
For s Bsby.
In these days wben tbe baby Is nut

safely and comfort. One of tbe big
shops Is showing a canvas pen mnde
with a strong framework of wood,
with sides high enough lo prevent the
baby from climbing out unless be Is
particularly acrobatic.
The pen Is so arranged with ropes
sr each corner tbst It may be raised
off the floor of the parch or room to
keep tbe baby entirely nut of s draft.
The canvas floor has enough spring to

American Writer Describes Visit te
Toronto on a Sunday.
1'he following story of "Hugh Al
len" is being publisned as syndicate
matter in a number, of United States
Did you ever spend Sunday in Toronto?
If you haven't, don't. .*•
lake my tip on it, and don't. *
You can get to Buffalo between 9
o'clock and noon, and it's a good
idea to do it. Buffalo isn't the best
town in the world, but-
Well, Goldsmith's "Deserted Village" is like 43nd and Broadway in
comparison to Toronto on Sunday.
I spent two days in Montreal and
one Sunday in Toronto. There's a
startling difference. Like—well, say,
like between day and night.
Montreal is a wide open town.'You
can laugh and smoke and talk French
and sing and drink Scotch whisky at
mahogany bars and get into a limit
game most any hour of the day or
night, seven days a week, there.
But. Toronto-
Well, I came into the town early in
the morning — Sunday morning.
There's a hotel alongside the depot,
but I figure I'l go farther uptown and
see a little of the city on the way.
I take a car and ride for blocks
through the business section of the
city. Everything is closed up. Tight-
er'n the proverbial drum.
Banks are closed, of course, and
wholesale groceries — you'd expect
that. But so are restaurants and drug
stores and news stands and souvenir
postal card emporiums—everything.
"Restaurants?" the conductor
echoes, "Well, if you get off at the
second block ahead, and walk four
blocks to the right, and round the
corner to the north a little way,
there's a place that's usually open."
I express a small part of the astonishment.
"Why, you're lucky to be ridiftg on
the cars; you couldn't used to."
I make my way back to the hotel
by the depot. After breakfast, I look
for a newspaper and some cigars. They
size me up like a secret service man
does a visitor to the President. Then
they look cautiously around. The
coast seems clear. They whisper lor
details and cautiously sneak cigars
and papers across to me.
"We're not supposed to do this,"
the man says In a stage whisper.
"Not supposed to sell stamps, even,
on Sunday. They round up about 15
or 20 places every Sunday for selling
papers and thingB."
"What's the chances for buying a
drink?" I hazard, my curiosity aroused.
"No chance," he said.
"But what if a snake bites me?"
"Well, you might engage a room at
the hotel and try to fix it up with the
bell boy."
"But at Montreal—"
.My informant is English. "Oh,
that's a French town," he observes,
"there's all kinds of graft in that
town. They've got some of their cdun-
cilmen up now before the rpyal commission for paving graft. TofoWb is
Yes, Toronto is clean, all right.
Nice, pretty streets and parks. Good
government and all that. And Montreal's streets look like a big green
cheese alter the rats have been in it.
But if I lived in Toronto and had
to stay home Sundays, I'd be tempted some day to go up in my room,
draw all the blinds down, close the
ventilator, bribe everybody to secrecy,
and try to smoke a cigarette.
Navy Chaplain In Canada.
Rev. Paul Bull, C.R., R.N., better
known as Father Bull, chaplain general to tbe royal navy, who was in.
Toronto recently on nis way to the
Brotherhood of St. Andrew convention
ut Proyidence, R.I., is a picturesque
personally and has had a stirring
career. In 1897 he wentato India to
minister to the troops there. For four
years he was chaplain of a camp of
2,500 boys, and is a natural expert
and enthusiast on boys' work. For
two years he was chaplain ■ to the
forces at Aldershot and to the Guards
in London. During the Boer war he
was chaplain to Gen. French's cavalry
division, and has been through twenty-five battles.
His address at St. Luke's Church,
Toronto, was sane, sensible, witii
flashes of wit, and at times epigrammatic.
He has no use for boy preachers,
"wbo come to us sometimes in England from America to our intensc'dis-
gust. If you encourage a boy," lie
said, "to preach to other boys or to
his elders, what you do is to imperil
his modesty, make him a mass of conceit and perhaps of hypocrisy. It you
play only, upon a boy's emotions you
run the risk of shattering his soul.
Ii you put a fair and reasonable idea
before a boy I believe he will live up
to it."

! The "Bandage Rush."
I This novel type of student warfare
I was introduced at McGill a few days
ago by the students of the first and
second years in the Faculty ot Applied Science, and it waB voted a great
improvement over the style of "rush"
! that had hitherto ibeen in vogue at
the University. It was played as follows: Two goals were erected on the
field, as for football. One of these
was placarded the "Freshman's
Morgue," the other the "Sophomore
Morgue." The members of the two
classes gathered around their respective goals and at a given signal made
a concerted rush for the centre of the
field, where they grappled and then
the fight was on. Each man wos
equipped with a large snpply of strong
bandages. The idea was to take a
member of the opposite side, tic him
up, and then drag him to the morgue
with as much haste as possible, and
the aide which had tho largest number in their morgue when time was
called was declared the winner. In
this case the Sophomores won an easy

Tonic Treatment
For Indigestion
Remedies That Digest the Food
Will Not Cure the Trouble-
Thr Stomach Must be
Fitted todo Nature's
The tonic treatment for indigestion,
dyspepsia, catarrh of the stomach aiid
gastritis is having remarkable success
in curing obstinate cases and deserves
attention from every sufferer.
Its principal is that remedies for indigestion that digest the food for the
stomach give relief for only a short
time. Ultimately they unfiit the stomach to do its own proper work, because they make its already weak powers still weaker by disuse, while the
remedy that strengthens the stomach
makes it capable of digesting the food
for itself, and this benefit is lasting. A
remedy that is not only a tonic for
the stomach, but tor the blood and
nerves as well, invigorates the entire
system and makes recovery from the
painful, weakening effects of indigestion rapid and thorough. Every sufferer from indigestion will find in Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills just tbe tonic
needed, as they enrich the blood, tone
the stomach and thus enable it to do
the work nature intended it should do.
This has been proved in thousands of
cases, and it is worth the while of
every sufferer from stomach troubles
to give.Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair
trial. Mr. Edward Chatterton, Camp-
bellton, N. B., says—"I have been a
great sufferer from indigestion and
stomach trouble and although 1 had
treatment from several doctors, I did
not find a cure until I began using Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I can ,hardly
describe how much I suffered at times.
Every meal brought with it more or
less agony, and I seemed to have a
complete distaste for food. I had almost begun to think my case incurable
when I came across a pamphlet advertising Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I
decided to give them a trial. I am
very thankful that I did so, for I had
not been taking the Pills long before
I found them helping me, and in six
weeks every symptom of the trouble
had vanished. I can now eat'heartily
almost any kind of food, and no longer experience pain and discomfort
after eating."
It is because Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills make new, rich blood that they
cure such troubles as indigestion,
rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches ahd
backaches, St. Vitus dance, and other
forms of nerve troubles. They cure
the irregularities of girlhood and womanhood, and bring ease, comfort,
nnd health to sufferers. Sold by all

An Improvement
Said He—"Since I met you I have
only one thought."
Said She—"Well, that's one more
than you had when we met."
They Soothe Excited Nerves.—Nervous affections are usually attributable to defective digestion, as the
stomach dominates the nerve centres.
A course of Parmelee's Vegetable Pills
will still all disturbances of this character, and by restoring the stomach to
normal action relieve the nerves from
irritation. There is no sedative like
them and in the correction of irregularities of the digestive processes, no
preparation has done so effective work,
as can be testified to by thousands.

any wonderful old ruins?" he nsked.
"Yes," she replied, archly; "and

"Give it up."

Ingenious Persons Menage to Give ■
Lot of Trouble.
Some folks appear to have a penchant for giving the postal officials
unnecessary trouble, and among the
worst in this category are those who
delight in so addressing their letters
that the sorters—who on all occasions
have to work at high pressure—have
to waste valuable time in trying to
decipher the meaning of a none too
clever verse, perhaps. It speaks
volumes for the sorters and poBtmen
that, with eyen the most attenuated
clue to the addressee, the missive is
almost sure of delivery.
From time to time the writer has
noted these "curious" addresses, and
gives here some of the most interesting examples from hia collection.
Recently a letter bearing the Croydon postmark arrived at the Princes
Risborough postoffice, near Aylesbury,
addressed as follows:

they couldn't be better.
Similar are the following examples.
In February, 1880, "Uncle Toby, the

ceived a letter addressed:

A Canadian Grub In London.
By a log of wood riddled with tiny
tunnels, says a London correspondent,
stands an ordinary-looking beetle, in
the insect house at the London Zoo.
It has just been born as a beetle from
the grub which drove those tunnels.
It belong to the Longicorn family of
The grub was sent from Canada in
a small log of Vancouver pine to a
lady eighteen months ago. When recently it turned into a beetle she
sent it to the Zoo, and it has just
emerged in its final state, but it may
have been anywhere between twenty
and fifty years in tbe wood, boring
the tunnels through the log.
An official at the Gardens says that
naturalists have not yet settled how
long it takes beetles to accomplish
this work of boring. There is the historic case of the Natural History Museum grub of the same species. For
fourteen years it lived undiscovered
in the boot tree constantly used by
sn Indian military officer and probably had lived in the wood itself before it was made into a boot tree.
When the officer first discovered the
grub lie handed the boot tree, grub
und all, over to the museum. It was
placed in a show case, where it lived
ten years. About once annually the
grub used to poke its head' out into
the daylight, when the curator
promptly pushed it back into the

"The Weeping Counsel."
It was on account of his earnest
and emotional pleading for Arthur Or-
ton, the Tich borne claimant, that
Lord Halsbury, who recently celebrated his eighty-fourth birthday, wus so
christened. If his lordship believes
in lucky numbers, bs lias reason to regard "5" as his own. He was born
in 1825; he began liis career at the
Bar in 1850; he was made a Q.C. in
1865; he was appointed Solicitor-General in 1875; be became Lord Chancellor in 1885; and he commenced his
third term of office in 1805. An incident in his early days brought his
cureer perilously near a close. While
defending u prisoner at the Old Bailey
be excited the animosity of nn insane
clergyman, who fired a revolver at
him. This is the only instance on record of an attempt to ussussinutc an
English advocate in the performance
of his professional duties.
Keeping Busy.
Wulking one day amongst his old
parishioners in the Eust End of London, Dr. Lung (now Archbishop of
York) stopped a parishioner who had
married u mnn who enjoyed the reputation of being the laziest man in the
Hast. "Well, Mrs. Brown," he said,
"I hope your husband is proving a
good provider." "Yes, sir, thank you,
sir," she replied; "he's provided me
with three new places to work at sinoe
we wore married." _ i
The Proper Kind
"Say," queried the young man with
the conundrum habit, "what kind of
notes does a shoe-horn player use?"
"Foot noteB, I suppose," answered
the girl who was wise to hia foolishness.
For Sprains "and Bruises.—There is
nothing better for sprains and contusions than Dr. Thomas' Eclectric
Oil. It will reduce the swelling that
follows a sprain, will cool the inflamed
flesh and draw the pain as if by magic.
It will take the ache out of a bruise
and prevent the flesh discoloring. It
seems as if there was magic in it, so
speedily does the injury disappear
under treatment.
A Tile of Webster
As Judge-made law ia now so much
discussed, we may recall one of the
neatest answers in history, as far, at
least, as our own reading goes:
Judge (interrupting Webster's argument)—'That is not law."
Webster—"It was law until your
honor spoke."
Scott—"Long hair makes a man look
Mott—"Except when his wife finds
one oh hiB coat. Then he looks foolish."
If every woman, who has Kidney or
Bladder trouble, could go to Davis-
ville, Ont., and talk to Mrs. A Simpson, they would do just as she did—
take Gin Pills and cure themselves.
"For 14 or 15 years I had Kidney or
Bladder trouble, suffering at times intense pain. I doctored continually but
nothing gave me permanent relief until I wns persuaded to try Gin Pills.
"Within a couple of days I received
great relief, and after taking one box
waa completely cured."

Brown. "I didn't know he took any
interest in gardening." "He doesn't.
He's merely laying his plans to cap-

Bickle's Anti-Consumptive Syrup is
agreeable to the taste and is a certain relief for irritation of the throat
that causes hacking coughs. If used
according to directions it will break
the most persistent cold, nnd restore
the air passages to their normal healthy condition. There is no need to
recommend it to those familiar with
it, but to those who seek a sure remedy and are in doubt what to use, the
advice is—try Bickle's Syrup.
"Our Emancipated Woman's League
is going to have a lecture on the social
Equality of the Sex." Now be sure and
come, won't you?" "I certainly shall,
and I'll bring Mrs. Brown with mc."
"Not for worlds! You know she isn't
