Tho Central Park Literary and Debating Society held its last meeting of the
season last evening, whon a paper was
read-by Mr. W. J Cunningham on the
oirly "Early History of British Columbia.'' The writer seemed to havo his
subject will iu hand, and it proved very
interesting and instructive. , A few
pleasant musical and literary numbers
helped to lengthen the program. At the
close a hearty vote of thanks wns tendered tho officers and program committee
for their faithful work duriug tne to. •
son. Iu replying tho Prosidont, Mr.
Saudersou said that it had beeu vciy
difficult to get speakers for the different
debates, aud he was rather disappointed
iu the work of tho Society during tho
past scasou, bnt hoped that by next
winter the members, and pariiculnrly
the youug peoplo, would be more willing to assist. Further, he felt sure that
tho talent exhibited by somo of the
young  gentlemen  was such  that  by
proper practice in tho Society debates
might some day bo worthy of representing us iu tho Houso at Victoria, (cries
of hear I hear I). -Mr. Sanderson on bo-
half of tho Executive thanked very
kindly all those who had assisted in nny
way. Tho meeting closed with tho
National Anthem.

Continued from last week.
"How do you do, Lady Marlingford?" he snid in just the ordinary
tone of polite greeting.
Her white teeth closed on lier lip
for a moment, then she bent her
head. 'I'he "Lady Marllngford" was
like a blow to lier from the man
who hud heen wnnt to breathe
"Judith" as ii it were a psahu of
life,   u sonnet of love.
"I—I did nut know you were—
back," she snid. "And why do you
call me Lady Marllngford?" she added, her brows drawn as if with pain.
He ought to have been startled by
the question, but it would have taken very little less than an earthquake
to startle ppor Nana at this period
of his existence.
"How do 1 en"." he asked, not
bitterly, but with a placidity which
cut her more deeply thun any bitterness would have done. "You wero
just on the point of marrying Lord
Marlingford when 1 left lingland—if
you remember."
She raised her head nnd looked at
■him. Tho group to wliich ho had
been absently listening was quite
.close and within hearing, and she
mado a slight gesture with hor
"Will you conic a little farther up
the ride?"- she said in a very low
Vane hesitated for an instant. He
had loved this girl with a love
which he had thought eternal, had
well nigh lost his reason when she
•had betrayed and deserted him; but
now he had not the least desire to
talk with her. His Iovo for Nina—
how in its purity and truth it shamed his old passion for Judith Ormo!
—had wiped out all thought of and
desire for any other woman, even for
this exquisitely beautiful one. But
he could scarcely refuso her request
and, with a nod, he moved beside
her to a vacant space. Sho took her
'horse close to the rail and bent
■down, so that sho could whisper to
him; he was still sensible of the
grace    of her   movements,    but  only
tt^nalblo    of   i I,    aa   UttO    io   canscil.llS   of
the grace of a particularly beautiful
statue or a singulurly charming picture.
"Don't you  know?   Have you  not
heard?"  she snid    with the    fnintest
tremor in her voice, tho
used to thrill him.     ^^^^^^^^^
"Heard what?" ho said, almost
She regarded him with a chastened air.
"Poor Lord Marlingford died just
—just beforo our—our wedding day,"
Bhe said brokenly.
Vane's eyelids did not even flicker,
and  h._  looked at hor ctourlily.
"Poor beggar!" he said. "I'm
sorry. "I'm sorry for him." And
he was genuinely sorry, for he remembered what the loss of her had
been  to himself.   "I hadn't heard—"
She drew a long breath. "No?
When did you come back to Eng-
land? Wo heard tbnt you were lost.
And 1—I was—sorry. I felt—when
did you como back?"
"Some time Bince," ho replied.
"And so Lord Marlingford died!
Accept my most sincere condolences,
Miss Orme."
Tbo sapphire eyes rested on him
with sweet reproach.
"Miss Orme! Ah, Vane, you cannot forgive! You did not understand. You do not understand, even
Vane's lips begun to curl.
"I beg your pardon," he said with
polite interest, nothing moro.
She sighed again ns she curbed the
impatience and restlessness of the
"I want to tell you—but this is no
place. But I must congratulate you,
"On my succession to the title?" hs
said.  "Thanks!"
Her eyes swept over his seedy serge
Buit,  and, ns if in response, he said:
"I only heard it last night. I camo
back from—I was ln London, hard
up, and, well, I suppose looking for
■omcthing to do, when I heard ths
news. Sir Charles Lctchford happened
to spot mo—"
Sho tossed her beautiful head
"The Letchfords? Yes. They used to
ho friends of mine, but Blanche haa
cut mo lately, since—sho did not understand, as you do not understand,
that I was tho victim of clrcum-
atances. You know what my father is
—what my life hns been—"
Vano regarded her calmly. There
was a noto of appeal in her musical
voico which would havo roached his
heart and elicited a quick response
eome months ago; but it did not
move him now.
"I—I can't tell you all now,"
aaid. "Will you not come to
Vane hesitated a moment.     If
woman   who hesitates is lost,
much moro so is tho man I
"Thanks, I shall be very pleased,"
he aaid.
Her lips parted with a smile, a
smile that was almost ono of humble
"You will? Ah, that Ib good of
youl And I want to hear all that has
happened to you. You will tell me,
won't you?" .
Vane, thinking that hs certainly
Would not, replied, as ln duty bound:
"You—you aro not looking well,"
■he murmured, tho snpphiro eyes
■weeping over his faco and the seedy
serge suit.
"I've been down on my luck," said
Vane, ln response to tho glance,
"and I heard of tho chango in my
fortunes so recently that I hnven't
had time to pull myself together."
"And I am changed also: don't you
notice it?" she said, sadly.
"Can't say I do," replied Vano.
"You seem to me os—as charming
as ever, Judith." Ho had intended
to say "Miss Orme;" but tho familiar
name escaped him.
Her eyes lit up for a moment, but
Bhe veiled them Instantly.
"Do you think so? Oh, I am changed; very much so. An you will come?
Tbe old address."
"Thanks," he said. "Yes; certainly
t will come."
"Thank you; It Is good ot youl"

"Not to-morrow," he said, mo-
chanicnlly. "I am engaged. I am going to Lesborough. When I come
She drooped over her saddlo and
held out her long, thin hand, so perfectly gloved that tho kid seemed an
outer skin. Vane took it—how often
had his lips kissed the white hand
that glove covered!—pressed it with
the proper amount of pressure.
"When you come back—directly you
como back," she said, and turned her
Judith Ormo rodo toward Queen
Anne's Gate, with her beautiful eyes
fixed on her horse's ears, and, though
she bowed and smiled in response to
the many greetings she received, she
was scarcely conscious of thom.
She pulled up ut one of tho small
houbes in St. Margaret's Place, which
are as fashionable as they are small
and inconvenient, and, having alighted with the aid of her discreet and
well-mounted groom, entered the
house and went up to the drawing-
The tea-table was set by the window overlooking the park, and Judith, after ringing tho bell for tho
urn, sank into an easy-chair and let
her beautiful face fall into tho warm,
whito hands from which she had
stripped her gloves, with a restless,
feverish haste.
As the maid was placing the urn on
the table a step, light but unsteady,
was heard on tho stairs, and presently there entered a seemingly middle-
aged, if not quite young, man. Ho
was small and slightly built, with
features almost as delicately moulded as a woman's. His hair—it was a
really admirable wig, a perfect work
of art—sat, with a fine Imitation of
nature, on a faco painted and enamelled so artfully that It might have
belonged to a young man of five-and-
twenty. The figure, slight and debonair, was clothed with a sartorial
skill and cunning to which Saville
Row alone could aspire; and it was
only the eyes, a little bleared and
prominent, which aroused the suspicion ol the keen observer—a very
keen observer—and let. out the secret
of Sir Chandos Ormo's age.
Judith's hands fell from her eyes
as her father entered the room, with
his jaunty, would-be juvenile air, and
tho expression of hor lovely faco
grew hard and matter-of-fact.
"You're home early, father," she
suid, curtly.
"Yes; yes, I am," he said. He had
lunched at his club, lunched unwisely
and too well, and tho natural flush
on his face strove, with praiseworthy but futile energy, to pierco
tho coat of enamel and paint. "But
I came home because I havo some
news for you. Vano Mannering Is here
—here in London!''
lto nnnlc {ntn   _, "hair ami   smiled at
her with a significance which was
somewhat drowned by ths effects of
the bottle and a half of champagne
he had taken with his lunch.
"He's back," he continued. "Old
T'anworthy saw him—trust old Fan-,
worthy for spotting a manl—and, as
you know, Mannering is now the Earl
of Lesborough."
"I know," Bald Judith, quietly.
"And but for you I should bo engaged to Vane Mannering, should bo his
"No, no, my dear Judith!" broko
in Sir Chandos. "It was your own
"My own doing!" said Judith, bitterly. "It was you, you, who stepped
in between us, who persuaded me to
throw Vane over and accept Lord
Marlingford. You know It, father."
Sir Chandos wave., his whito hands
—they wero still famous, though they
had been waving lor considerably
more than half a century.
"My dear Judith, do me justice !
Vano Mannering was, at thst time,
over so far removed from ths peerage."
"And So you sacrificed me," sho
said, bitterly. "Persuaded, compelled
me to throw him over and accept
Lord  Marlingford—"
"Who most—most inconsiderately
died," put in Sir Chandos. "But
whon you eay I compelled, I suggest,
I merely suggest that you wero easily persuaded—compelled; and rightly."
"And now—now Vane has come
back to England?" said Judith.
"And is—"
Sir Chandos shuttled in his chair
and toyed with tho cup of tea which
ho did not want.
"Tho Earl of Lesborough," ho said.
"You will, of course, my dear Judith-"
She rose, almost upsetting the fragile tabls with ita dainty Worcester
"You expect me, you want me to—
to—Ah, lt Is too shameful, too
Sir Chandos eyed her rather nervously.
"My dear Judith, my dear child!"
ho murmured, betweeu his artistically dyed moustache. "Circumstances
alter cases."
Bho turned her face from him, and
lt may be hoped that tho recording
angel will give hor credit for the
tears that shone ln tho sapphire eyes.
"You knew that—that I cared for
him; yes, loved him. I love him now.
Yes, I love him now."
Hor voico faltered and broke suddenly.
Sir Chandos eyed her with a faint
and murky surprise.
"Really? Is that so? Ton my Word,
my denr Judith. Well, well! Tut, tutl
But this Windfall is lucky for us!"
She dried her eyes and regarded
him with a bitter, defiant expression.
"What do yon mean?" she demanded, "Why is it lucky?"
Sir Chandos nt Inst put down the
nip that cheers, but whicll he abhorred, and blinked his bleared eyes ut
"Oh, I only meant to say thnt if
you still care for hiin, if you wunt

Sir Chandos laughed softly, thn
kind of chuckle which is born of a
knowledge of the world and an Incapacity for shame.

■Is AiM_**i_atlo_ Was Like the End.
fn_r of Julius Caeaar.
The 25th of March, 1801, was the day
on which the Emperor Paul of Russia
was assassinated. Paul had received
some whispers of the plot against bis
life and had arranged to leave St Petersburg the following day and go to
Moscow, where he fancied he might be
safer. On the eveniug of the 25th he
retired to rest at an early hour that he
might thoroughly rest himself before
commencing his Journey. At 11 o'clock
about a score of the conspirators—officers holding high rank in the army—
appeared at tho gnte of the palace. It
was closed, but the officers presented
an order, signed by the emperor himself—or, rather, with a forged signature
attached—and, Informing the sentinel
that they were culled to hold u council
of war with the cznr, were admitted.
The emperor's ald-de-cnmp was one
of the foremost of the conspirators and
went ln advance of the others to Taul's
bedchamber, before the door of which
was a Cossack soldier on guard. "The
emperor sleeps," said tlie man. "I must
rouse him. There Is fire In the city,"
replied the treacherous nid. The Cossack, seeing others push forward,
shouted out to alarm the emperor und
Immediately fell, pierced by the swords
of the conspirators, rnul attempted to
bolt the door, but being unable to do
so seized his sword and turned boldly
on them. "Whnt is your design?" he
demanded of Count Pinto Zouboff,
"nnd what do these men want who nre
with you?" "We demand your abdication," replied Zouboff, who then read a
formal deed, which hnd been previously prepared.
"What! Do you, who have been loaded with bounties by me. turn thus upon your master?" snid the emperor.
"You nre no longer our master," replied Zouboff. "The nation has provided you a successor ln the shape of your
son. Alexander."
Paul at this raised his sword, nnd
the conspirators, who had uot expected
him to show so much courage, drew
back, with the exception of a mnn
named Benlngsen, who urged the others forward, saying:
"If you hesitate, you are lost."
Then Count Valerian Zouboff strucit
the flrst blow, and the others quickly
followed bis example. As Paul still
struggled au officer's sash was passed
around his neck, and the life was choked out of him, his last words being:
"And you, too, my Coiistnnliue!"

Our attention haa recently beeu
called to a new machine which bas
lately been designed In Winnipeg tor
the purpose of treating all kinds of
seed grain. An outline cut of the machine is given herewith from which lt
will be seen that it consists of a triangular tank about fourteen inches
wide and four feet long, open at the
top aud supported on legs. This
tank contains the bluestone or formalin solution. From one end of the
tank a short elevator extends at an
angle of about 45 degrees, consisting
of two rubber belts with wood flights
placed about two and a half laches
apart. A receiving hood is attached
to the lower side of ihe top of the
elevator und just underneath this
hood and extending down to the floor
Uso at an angle of about 45 degrees, Is
placed a drain board. In operation
the upward movement of the top
side of the elevator belt causes an
upward current of the water from the
bottom of the tank and a backward
surrent on top. The grain falls
from the hopper above Into this current and is deflected backward by
it as it sinks slowly to the bottom.
At the same time all light and defective grain, smut-balls, wild oats
and other noxious weed seeds float
to the top when they are caught by
the backward water current and carried to the rear of the machine Into
quiet water, from which they may
bo    readily removed.       The    clean

'When a child is well, give it no
medicine," Ib a wholesome adage.
But at the first sign of trouble the
careful mother will give Baby's Own
Tablets, which promptly cure indigestion, colic, constipation, diarrhoea,
simple fevers and teething troubles.
They contain not one. particle of opiate or poisonous"soothlng"stuff, yet
they give refreshing sleep because
they remove the cause of sleeplessness
and the child awakens bright and
well. Mrs. F. Mcintosh, Wablgoon,
Ont, says: "Baby's Own Tablets
wrought a wonderful change ln my
little one. When he was two months
old he began to fail and cried almost
night and day. But after giving him
the tablets he grew well and ls now
a bright, laughing baby, who scarcely
ever gives any trouble. The tablets
are surely a blessing to both mother
and child." All druggists sell these

witb cleaning machinery, the farmer
has no use for the fanning mill other
than to clean his seed grain and
many of them decline to go to the
expense for a machine of so limited
use, and his aim has been to produce
a machine that would do the work
of the fanning mill and plckler ln
ono and the same operation, and at
the same time be supplied at a price
very much less than these two machines.
This ho claims to have accomplished and It would appear that his
claims are well grounded. The machine certalny does excellent work,

Additional Facts Recalling H. lA. Har

of Memorial Monument.
Henry Albert Harper lost his life ln
the Ottawa River on Dec 6,1901, undei
circumstances of equal bravery and
pathos. A young girl, for whose safety he was ln part responsible, was
drowning. The circumstances rendered an attempt at resuce desperate and
almost certain to be fatal. Harper de
llberately refused to return withput the
girl whose protector ho was. "What
else can I do?" he said, and plunged
Into the stream, to Join in death his
companion "whum he could not save

Placed on Wellington street at the head
of Metcalfe street, visible alike from
the steps of the House of Parliament
and from the busiest street of the city
—unveiled by the representative of the
Crown and received as a national trust
by the Premier of Canada—a statue
stands to the memory, not of Harper's
bearing of success ln life, but to his
exit from It. It ls "a moment's monument," to tbe honor of the firmness of
mind and correctness of principle which
braced a young man to show once, more
that he who loses his life shall save lt
The monument has taken the form oi
a statue and ls an exceptionally fine
piece of work. Sir Galahad, young and
lithe, drawn sword ln hand, foot advanced and body poised, face uplifted,
utters the prophetic words "If I lose
myself I save myself" The spirit and
beauty of Mr. B. W. Keysets work
merits tho warmest praise.
The recent ceremony of unveiling and
dedication was simple, but made Impressive than most events of that nature. Lord and Lady Grey and Sir Wilfrid Laurier were the centre of the little group on the platform by the statue,
but the chief Interest of day lay ln
the pathetic presence of Mr. and Mrs.
A. G. Blair, the parents of the girl
whom Harper died ln trying to save.
Mr. P. D. Ross acted as chairman and
ln opening the proceedings put the
wholo point of tho commemoration In
one excellent phrase, "Harper did not
need this monument; we did." Mr.
Mackenzie King, a closo personal friend
of Harper's, and the chairman of the
committee which erected the monument, presented lt to the nation. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, ln tho easy and graceful manner of which he ls a master,
accepted lt as a national possession,
declared that lt would be a labor of
love to guard and preserve lt, and drew
a very pretty picture ot succeeding
generations asking the reason for this
memorial and being told the story of
the young man's heroism.
The Governor-General was the last
speaker and his address was much the
strongest In matter and In feeling. Ho
described the monument as Increasing
"the Interest, the embellishment and
tho Idealism of the Federal capital,"
and after dwelling upon tho example
Harper had bequeathed to the people
of his country drew the lesson that
our greatest pleajufo should He ln
spending ourselves, our fortunes and
our lives for the common good. "Canada and tho world ls richer by his
death," said His Excellency, who
throughout and with evident unconsciousness forgot the tragedy In his application of the splendor of such a
death. Ho recalled another civil servant, a young man named Harvey,
whom he had seen lying mprtally
wounded ln the shadow of the Mal.oppo
lillls In Rhodesia and who had said to
him, "How fine It Is to die for the expansion of the Empire." In the spirit
of Harvey and Harper Earl Grey gloried. "How could they have died better?" Ho congratulated the sculptor
on his work, and expressed the hope
that this would only be the first of a
set of noblo companions who would
make this tho via sacra of the capital.

The English have a reputation for

Whatever they essay or undertake la

work, designed to carry them over
until something permanent can replace lt, they have neither use nor

they utterly fall to comprehend the

of less permanent methods. This Is
true In every department of British

building to the making of boots, and
the same attention to thoroughness
as a business principle extends Into
every trade and profession. Their
lawyers and teachers are articled for
double the period prevailing ln Canada, and their artisans and craftsmen
are nearly all apprenticed for seven
years. Hence, when a man bas been
through this long period of training
he should be a competent workman,
and when they remove to Canada,
where trade and business Ideals are
rougher and readier, and where there
Is undoubtedly too great a tendency
to take "short cuts" to reach results,
their Influence ls Inevitably towards
a more settled and stable business
policy, one which looks to the future
quite as much as to the present; and
will not sacrifice permanence to temporary present advantage. Canadian
prlnter-dom certainly derives benefit
from the admixture Into Its ranks of
a liberal leavening of the BrltlBh
trade Ideals, and ln Western Canada,
where there ls an appreciable percentage of British printers, their
coming has resulted ln many Important Improvements ln the general
quality of the work produced.
A type of the weil-tralned British
printer now ln the ranks of Western
journalism ls found ln Robert Vasey,
the new proprietor of the Western
Prairie, published at Cypress River.
In all the mechanics of the business
Mr. Vasey has had a most varied and
thorough training In some of the best
printing establishments of the old
country. He ls a north-countryman
by birth, having been born at Darlington, the great Iron and shipbuilding
town ln Durham, ln February, 1872,
so that he ls now in his thirty-fourth
year. "When he was thirteen years of
age he was apprenticed to George
Ibbotson, a well-known commercial
printer- Five years later, ln 1887, he
went North to Newcastle-on-Tyne,
where he remained another five years
with Messrs. Manson, Swan and Morgan, one of the best printing establishments In the north country. His
next move was to London, to the firm
of Alexander & Shepherd, one of the
biggest printers of the world's metro-
polls. This firm publishes twelve
weekly papers and several monthly
magazines, employing over 300 compositors and sixty machines. Mr.
Vasey remained with the firm five
and a-half years, being engaged ln
general newspaper work In all Ub
branches. He removed from London
back to Darlington, where, for another live years—Mr. Vasey's business
life seems to run ln five-year cycles—
he was ln charge of the Book Department of Dresser & Sons. This brought
him up to May, 1903. In that month
he, with his wife and little daughter.
There's   tho  woman   whose  house ls  so

Of dirt no suggestion or trace;
You   l'eel   quite   Instinctively   sorry   for

"Had  I  known  you  were coming  we'd
tidied a bit,"
She says, "for the place ls a fright."
No sign of disorder that you can discern,
No rooms that are slightly awry;
It gives her, she murmurs, the greatest

However,   she  says,   lf  you   can   feel  at
And manage to push past the grime,
You're welcome,  oh,  very, but overlook,
Her wretched housekeeping this time.
You glanco all around, hut you can't see
a sign
Of what she la talking about.
The house looks as fresh as a picture and
With all of the dirt put to rout.
Of course you assure her at once to your
Things look very neat and all right.
And she ln reply says she's sure it Is kind.
Although sho Insists it's a fright.
Say, women like that—don't they give you

And make you feel cross ns a benr
And wish you ..ad nerve to light up a

To muss up the pillows that stand there

And put a crimp In tho divan?
Of course you restrain your Impulses, but,
You're tickled thnt you're not her man.
Even Ghosts Run.
A zealous young curate went to stay
with some friends at a country house.
On descending to breakfast the first
morning he noticed that his hostess
inquired very particularly how he had
slept, and seemed relieved when he said
he had passed a very good night. This
was repeated every day during his
visit until the last morning, when his
hostess   said,   "Mr.    ,   you   perhaps
noticed how very particular we were
in our Inquiries every morning as to
how you had slept, but the truth is
that the room you occupied ls said to
be haunted, and we were anxious to
know lf you had seen the ghost." "The
ghost!" repeated the curate, thoughtfully, "oh, yes, I dj remember the flrst
night I was here some fellow came and
stood by my bedside." "Oh!" said the
company with great Interest, "and what
did you do?" "Oh, I spoke to him."
"Spoke to him? What did you say?"
"I said, 'Please will you give me a subscription for my Sunday school?' He
Instantly disappeared, and I never saw
him again."—London Tatler.

A Valuable Addition to Ontario'* Historical   Records.
The second report of the Provincial
Bureau of Archives, prepared by tho
archivist, Mr. Alexander Fraser, Is just
out. It ls a publication of over 700
pages, and comprises an important addition to the historical records of Ontario. Its contents are thus described
ln Mr. Fraser's preface to the report:
"Conforming to the general plan of
publication set forth ln last year's report, the documents herewith presented
come within the period from 1763 to
1791, dealing with the beginnings cf
British settlement ln Ontario, of which
the United Empire Loyalists were the
"The claims advanced by the Loyalists on account of services In connection with and arising from the Revolutionary war were investigated by special commissioners appointed by the
British Parliament, two of whom, viz.:
Col. Thomas Dundas, and Mr. Jeremy
Pemberton, were sent to Canada, to
meet claimants personally and obtain
evidence on the spot. The evidence
thus secured contained ln a number of
MS. volumes, found Its way, as ig fully
explained later on, to Washington,
whero It now ls, ln the Archives of the
United States. The original papers
have been literally copied and form
the subject matter of this report.
"The spelling, abbreviations, and
phraseology of the MS. as ls customary
ln such cases, have been followed without deviation, and the private marginal notes of the commissioners reproduced, thus preserving the character
of the original as much as It is possible to do so ln type."
The only way to beat the game Is to

What Is Truth I
Perhaps truth crushed to earth will
rise again. The fisherman who ls an
expert in this direction might be lu-

Truth In his hands ls frequently
crushed to earth, according to a popular belief, nud when lt rises again tbe

days a new scientist comes along and,
looking at what has been called truth,
Bays, "Oh, bosh!" aud proceeds to put
a crimp in lt.
This Is a world of change, and, not
to be behind the times, truth changes

It Is an almost forgotten fact that
for a period of a llttl* mor* than tw*
years during the Napoleonic wars Corsica was a British possession. After
tho evacuation of Toulon the British
government felt lt necessary to take
the Island, and Lord Hood, with Nelson as brigadier, was sent to drive out
the French. With the capture of Calvl,
July 12, 1794, where Nelson lost his
eye, the Island fell Into British hands,
and Ceorge III. formally accepted the
crown of Corsica, appointing Sir
George Elliot as British viceroy and
allowing the Corsieans to retain their
legislative assembly. In 1790 tho activity of the French navy In other
parts of tho Mediterranean resulted ln
a sudden decision of the British government to withdraw from the Island.
I'he evacuation wus completed on Oct.

' Do you feel all tired out? Do you lottie-
ttmeB think you just can't work away at
your profession or trade any longer? Do
you have a poor Rppetite, and lay awake at
nighta tumble to sleep? Are your nerves
all  gone, and your  stomach too?
Ha* ambition to forge ahead   f\'\ Jn    tbe
left you?
If flo,
r   you  might
as well   put
stop  to your
misery.   Vou can do
it if you will.    Dr.
Pierce's    Golden
Medical    Discovery
will mnke yuu a different Individual.   It
will   set your slug-
R-iflb liver to work.
It will get into every
vein   in  your body
,        . and   purify   your
Wood tt will wt things right in your stomach, and your appetite will come back. If
there ia auy tendency in your family townrd
consumption, it will keep that dread destroyer away. Even after consumption ban
almost gained a foothold in the form of a
lingering cough, bronchitis, or bleeding at
the lung-, it will bring about speedy cure in
98 per cent. of all cases. It is a remedy prepared by Dr. R. V Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y.,
whose advice, is given fret to all who wish to
write him. His great success bas come from
his wide experience and varied practice.
O. 3. CopL-nhaver, Esq., of Mount Union,
Huntingdon Co., Pa. (Box 332), writes: "About
twelve years ago I was suddenly taken with ■
f.iiiu iu the pit of the stomach which was so vio
rnt I could nut wnlk straight. It would grow
more severe until it caused waterbrash nnd vomiting of ■ slimy yellow wnter. A physician told
ine I had a form of dyspepsia and treated me for
about six mouths with but little benefit. Another physician told me my liver was out of or-
d'.-r and thnt I had indigestion. He gnve me a
treatment aud I got some better hut only for a
short time. I then tried aim! her on**., who snid I
had chronic Indigestion, ulceration ef the lining
of the stomach, torpid liver nnd kidney affection.
He treated me for more tlipti h ve.ir snd I felt
nui-h better; but it did not hut, I then look to
nsitiK sr-vcrnl widely advertised pattOt medicines, but received no mure than temporary relief. I then tried Dr, Pierce's medicines, using
his ' Golden Medical Oiicover-y,' and the ' l'leas-
ant Pellets,' aud iu two months' tint* I wm feeling better thnn I hnd for years before."
Don't bt wheedled by it penny-grabbing

be "Jint as-good."

Well posted men In the trade outlook
say there will bo the greatest' sale of
lingerie waists this summer that was
ever known. In faot. what- may bo
termed the lingerie idea bids fair tu
dominate iu nearly all lines for summer. The lingerie suit will be im-
menslcy popular. The lingerie hat will
be moro costly, moro elaborate aud
more beautiful than it was last year.
There Is even the lingerie parasol. This
lingerie rage will bring an enormous
demand for sheer white fabrics and all
varieties of fine laces and embroidorios.
Tho season's fashions oall for an un-
usual amount of detail in ornamentation.
A wealth of trimming will be employed
in connection with all fabrics. Not only
will there be laces, cords, braids, gal-
oons, ribbons, buttons and embroideries
galore, bnt a feature of the sjyle is the
combination of several forms of trim'
miug on one garment, such as soveral
kinds of lace with embroidery on a lingerie waist or several kinds o.f braid and
applique combined with straps of silk
and fanoy buttons on wool costumes.
As has been repeatedly said, the three-
quarter or short sleeve will easily dominate the fashion for . spring; and
summer. On the plain, tialored suits
an d waists aud on tue seperate ooats
the long sleeve will continne to bo in
Lightness will be the keynote in materials. Nearly all fabrics are lighter
in weight, softer ln finish and more
open in weave than in the season jnst

Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made thi
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
does to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises fo_!.':,"lf he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.
