There Is a spot nleng the Des Moines
river which stands out vividly In my
memory not for its extreme beauty
or because it was one of the places
where Morris proposed to me, but for
the reason thnt 1 came very near accepting him there. It was too stilling
nn evening to spend in the heart of tho
city, so we rode out to escape the heat.
I took a wicked delight in making Morris ride, for he knew nothing at all
about horses nnd wns rather afraid of
He was very big aud awkward nnd
very much in earnest. As ho had
come all the way from Washington to
visit a distant cousin whom he detested, I naturally supposed that he had
come to nsk again tho question he had
asked mc In our senior year ot college,
threo times afterward in letters nnd
once In person dining his vacation of
the summer before.
It wns the lust night of bis stay, and
as yet he bad not broached the subject.
He had proposed a drive, but I refused,
knowing Its sentimental possibilities,
and had insisted on riding my little
brown mare Ginger and lending hlin
Doctor, father's solemn old buck. We
saddled the horses ourselves and starter from the driveway behind the barn.
In the soft dusk we trotted westward
over the river and past the residences
till we reached n wooded bend of the
stream beyond the viaduct. It was
quiet und cool, and wo stopped near tho
edgofbf the bank, turningvonr horses'
heads! so thnt we could look across at
the nfc-riad lights, of the city. We had
been j.augblng and chatting, but now
we Wjere silent. I could bear the beating of my own heart, for I wondered
lf I Was quite ready to give him the
nnswer for which be longed.
There was no moon, nnd the nlgbt
was dark but for n splendor of stars.
INO.  OVIitt TUB llltmOE.
From 'Me city enmo the deadened roar
of the traffic and travel we had left
behind, riere thero was a slight wind,
and a sleepy bird call sounded from
the trees. My heart sank a little. What
lf he were not going to spoak after all?
Whnt if the gayety which assumed to
hide thnt I really cared bad driven
hint'' from me? I dared not look at
\iira, but he moved a littlo, and then
x fglt his hand on mine where lt lay
In ny lap, for Ginger knew my ways,
andj. tbe reins lay on her neck. I did
not look up because I could not, but I
did: not take nwny my hand.
"Nan," he said quietly, "is this time
to be like all the others? It Is to be tbe
lus( time, for you know I cannot keep
forcing myself upon you. You know
yoarown mind by this time. I think you
do love mo, dear. Can you not sny so
nnd make me"— A sudden wild shriek
drowned his voice, nnd n passenger
train whizzed and roared over tbo
bridge below. Then—1 have never
known quite bow It happened, but Ginger bolted. She did not mind my voice,
and tbe reins were dangling over her
head out of my reach. I bad only kept
my scat by the quick Instinct of n
skilled horsewoman. Before I realized
lt wo were thundering over the bridge.
The mare's hoofs clattered on the pavement os she tore wildly past the residence*. I could do nothing lint keep
iny bnlnnco and thank fortune that the
saddle girth wns tight.
My own agonized thought was for
Morris. It woultl be terrible for blm.
He was helpless, for he could not hnve
overtaken me oven If he had n good
mount, nnd Doctor was old and stiff,
though lie hnd made n good record In
Ilia youth. Ginger was utterly terrified.
I epoke to her quietly again and again
to no avail.
t am quite sttru that I wns not afraid,
but I never hoped to reach honio safely. Tho downtown streets were full of
vehicles, and then cars were still running. I Would be dashed against something or thrown from the saddle.
As we sped along I did not think at
nil, I only felt In n sudden flash of
recognition that my life had been useless. I had been alwuyr taking, taking, ana (riving nothing. I bad iiofevca
told Monis that 1 did love blm and always would. As we swerved, swiftly
niid safely pi;st n whizzing car I realized for the first time the speed nt which
wis were going. Could Morris be nny-
wjSciv. in pursuit? I know it wns Ira-
possible, but I longed for u chance to ,
sajr "yes" over nnd over again till even ;
hrj should be satisfied.
Suddenly a new fear seized me.    I
should never tell lilni now.   The mare
was muking for home, frantic to get '
bnck to her stall.  For all my agonized i
effort, I could not remember lf we bud !
shut the barn door.   I thought It must
be open. I would bo diuEaod off. I be
gan wilh quick numbness to see my
own death as the death of another and
to wonder why I should die In this
particular way.
It was only a few blocks from home.
For an instant I wns glad tbat I had
no mother. I could just remember her.
A line or two of a little hymn she had
taught me as a child ran through my
1  thought   I   heard the  beating of
hoofs behind mc and turned In the saddle to look, but saw no one.   I do not
know lf I  hnd some vain hope that
Morris would do something yet.   I only
wanted to tell him.   If he had been In

"Yes.   I love you!   I love you!"
We swung around the corner and toward  the driveway.    I think I  must
have lost consciousness for n moment,
for I saw nothing more till a sudden
Btop threw mo from the saddle, and I
opened my eyes to find myself in Morris' arms.
"Yes," I said.   "Yes, I do; I do!"
"What?" he nsked.   "Are you hurt?
Are you hurt?"    But I only kept on
saying, "Yes, yes"—
He lifted me like a child and was
carrying me bodily to the house, but
I struggled to my feet and stood clinging to blm. He was trembling and
bis voice was unsteady ns he tried to
put back some of my long hnlr.
"I came on the street north—I kept
you In sight," he said. "I dared not
coino up behind you for fear of frightening hor worse. I had to get here
first. The door—I got lt shut just In
time. Are you hurt?" re repeated. I
laughed a little hysterically.
"Yes," I replied. "But I wouldn't be
lf you had not forgotten whnt you asked me and then pay no attention when
I sny 'yes!' I want to get it said for
good and nil before anything else gets
a chance to happen. My bones are all
right—It's only my heart that hurts."
"Do you happen to meau It?" he
asked solemnly, holding me close to
I "Yes," I-coutinucd, "I'm afraid I do.
| There 1b no hope for you unless you
want me to take it back."
Then Morris did what I nm sure he
I bad been longing to do for several

A  Conrnereoasi Corporal.
When Lord Iiawdon wns In South
Carolina lie bud to send an express of
great importuned through it part of the
country tilled with Continental troops.
A corporal of the Seventeenth dragoons, known for his courage and intelligence, was selected to escort it.
They had not proceeded far when
i tbey were Qred upon, the express was
killed and the corporal wounded in the
side. Careless of his wound, he thought
only of his duty. He snatched the dispatch from the dying man and rode on
: till, from the loss of blood, he fell.
Then, fearing the dispatch would be
taken by his enemy, be thrust lt Into
his wound until the wound closed upon
It nnd concealed it. He was found
next dny by a British patrol, with a
smile of honorable pride upon his countenance nnd with lifo just sufficient to
point to the fatal depository of his secret.
In searching the body the cause of
his death was found, for the surgeon
declared that the wound in itself was
not mortal, but was rendered so by tbo
Irritation of the paper.
Thus fell this patriot Boldier. In rank
a corporal, he wns In mind n hero. His
nauie was O'Lavery, and be came from

Itoiiinnco  of a Relic.
According to n London writer no Roman relic has met with bo remarkable
n fate ns the tomb of Avilius Teres,
the celebrated jockey of tbe time ot
Domitlan. At the end of tbe third
century it was first removed from Its
original site by nn unknown patrician,
whoso epitaph was engraved on the
bnck ot the slab; second, a Christian
named Aurellus llomanus made use of
It for his grave nnd that of his sisters.
When the Church of St. Maria
Transpontla wns built in the eighth
century near the Castle of St. Angelo
part of the slab was made use of In
laying the marble pavement. The
church was demolished In July, 1504,
by Tins IV. to mnke room for the new
fortlflcntlons of the castle, and when
Pope Urban VIII., in 1027, built the
pentagonal bastion two fragments of
the inscription came to light, one of
which was lost, the other being removed to Florence, where lt la still to
be seen in tlie Ufizzl gallery.
In the course of n general restoration
of the castle with n view of transforming it into a museum of artillery many
other fragments were found of which
Urban VIII. bad evidently made use In

Par Dny In China.
New Year's Is tbe nutlonal pay day
In China. All accounts must be squared up at that time, and the man wbo
can't raise money enough to pay bis
debts bas to go Into bankruptcy. The
laws are such that tbe creditor can eater the debtor's bouse and take what
be pleases If there Is no settlement.
To prevent such action families club
together and make all sorts of compromises to keep up tbe business reputation of the clan. New Year's Is a
great day for the pawnbrokers. Their
shops nre crowded with people who
want to redeem their best clothes before tho new year. Thero nro crowds
also who wnnt to pawn other things
In order to get money to pay their
debts. Pawnbrokers receive high rates
of Interest, In which they are protected by the government

The editor loaned back In his chair
and sighed. Tbe roar of the crowded
street down below rose eternally, wearily. He got up and closed the window.
Then he read the story again.
lt brought groat breaths of fragrant
Sir into tbe stuffy room. He could see
tbe open meadows and woodlands; the
dashing, overflowing brooks, where the
trout were rising; tbe throbbing now
life bursting out Into the sunshine,
lie felt it all keenly, for he bad spent
most of that happy boyhood of bis up
among the hills of Connecticut. Yes,
the busiest editor In New York sat
there dreaming, while below lu the
general office people with important
business were being turned away by
Iho dozeu.
The story was signed simply M. B.
Turner, with nn address somewhere
up In Connecticut. "I never saw any
one catch the real spring fooling as
that mnn docs," tbe editor said to himself. "He must be n good angler and
general sportsman."
Instead of sending the usual printed
slip accepting the article, he picked up
his pen and wrote tbe following note:
Mr. M. B. Turner:
Dear Blr—I hnvo Just read your manuscript, "Tho Call of the Hed Gods," and 1
like It so much that I shall try to make
room for It in the May number, which Is
already made up. 1 want to tell you per-,
sonally how much I have enjoyed reading
It and how It took me back to my boyhood home. I, too, am an angler by
choice, though an editor by necessity. If
you have other stories I should be glad to
read them.   Very truly yours,
The editor of the Twentieth Century
wns still young and genial, nnd his
outer shell bad not yet hardened.
Then be went back to hi3 work and
forgot the story. But sometimes in
tlio midst of the rush nnd confusion of
the great magazine office there came
a faint, sweet scent of violets und
damp, spring earth, and the roar of
the city streets wns confused with the
rush and roar of the brooks overflowing with tbe spring floods. It wns then
that the story was uppermost in bis
Ono or two other manuscripts came
from tho same writer, but none was
equal to tbe first.
"He ought to stick to nature," mused
tbe editor one day In a leisure moment. "I wish I could see him nnd
have a talk on the subject."
He wrote a little note to Mr. M. B.
Turner and told him that when he was
In town he should be glad to hnve him
call at tbe office of the Twentieth Century. In reply came a little typewritten note thanking hlin for tbe Invitation, but as M. B. Turner wns setting
out for n long summer trip through
Canada he could not be in New York
until the early fall. It made the olllce
seem very hot and stuffy—tbe thought
of that Canadian trip.
Tho last of August Monteith managed to get a two weeks' vacation.
Wben he returned from the Maine
woods the city looked dirtier nnd more
dingy than ever. It wns refreshing to
find a note from Mr. Turner stating
that he would call at tbe office on
Weducsday morning at half past 10 if
that would be convenient to the editor.
Thnt was Montelth's busiest day, but
without hesitation he Bent a cordial
Invitation to the young author to come
at the specified time.
When he went to the office on
Wednesday be had a strange feeling
of expectation which be could not explain until he remembered tbat this
was the dny that the disciple of Istiak
Walton was to call. Even while dictating letters to bis typewriter his
mind was wandering off to tbe woods
and fields be loved so well. His
thoughts were called back by Miss
Jones and the cessation of the click of
the typewriter. "I did not catch that
last sentence, Mr. Monteith," she snid,
looking up; "something about pines
and a brook."
Monteith snt up, and a flush deepened on ids fnce oven through hia tan.
"Olirno!" ho Bald politely. "You must
have misunderstood me. But that will
do for this morning, Miss Jones, thank
you." He had left word downstairs
that, although he was busy, he would
see Mr. Turner If he called.
It was n quarter before 11 when the
office boy, wltb n most perplexed nnd
worried expression, threw open the
door and announced, "Miss Turner."
Monteith rose to bis feet There on
(bo threshold, hosltutlng, flushed, stood
n slight girl In n trim tailor gown. Tbe
faliit perfume of violets floated Into
iho room.
"I nm Misa Turner," she suid./'l—1
really should have told you before. I
only realized It wns quite wrong when
Ihey almost refused to let mo see you
and would not believe that I was the
expected person."
She looked so much embarrassed
that Monteith recovered himself sooner
than bo could have done otherwise in
ortlei to put her nt ense. But he, too,
"1 nm very glad to see you, Miss
Turner," be snld, shaking hands with
her In his cordial wuy. "So yon ore the
author of 'The Call of the Red Gods?'
You renlly must forgive me for being
so surprised; but, you see, I hnd always pictured n man—n regular sportsman—nnd I cannot quite got adjusted
to this change. Renlly, bow could you
have done It?" be finished abruptly.
"I am rather fond of fishing," she
confessed rather apologetically. "I go
out constantly with iny brother, and so
I thought I would try to write up one
of my experiences. I was more surprised 1hnn any one else when you nc-
cnleil It. I used uiv initials honing
that you woultl think I was it man.   i
was afraid you would not accept anything about fishing if you thought it
was written by ti girl."
Monteith laughed. "It does not matter who wrote It," ho snld. "It wus delightful."
The girl's eyes sparkled. "I nm so
glad!" sho said. "I hnve so wanted to
write things that woultl bring ull the
freshness of outdoors into other people's lives."
"1 did not know that girls ever csred
much for that sort of thing, or lt tbey
did I fancied they were different from
you-more   masculine,   I   mean."    Hu
flushed nnd hesitated.
"Lots of girls care," she said, "only
you don't know them. Now, I nm never so huppy as when fishing or tramping through the woods."
"That is true happiness," snld Monteith thoughtfully, looking down into
tlie crowded street. "There Is nothing
so much to be desired in our complex
life of today as simplicity. The craving
for excitement is killing the best that
is In us, the childlike love of simple
things. That is why I liked your story," be finished abruptly, turning back
to her. He liked tbe way the hair
curled about her face and the flush
under the tanned cheek. She wns the
picture of health and strength nnd the
joy of life.
He hnd forgotten that this wns a
business Interview and thnt he hnd an
important engagement at 11, but tlio
girl remembered.
"I am afraid I am keeping you," she
said anxiously. "I know how busy editors are."
"Ob, I quite forgot," he said, smiling, "that I had n business proposition
for you. It's all mixed up now, however, because you are not a mnn. I
was going to make you an offer to go
through the fishing grounds of Canada
and write them up.   I'm sorry."
The girl leaned forward eagerly, and
the color crept up into ber face. "Ob!"
she breathed softly.   "Could I?"
"I am afraid you couldn't very well,"
lie said doubtfully. "It would be a
hard trip, and you couldn't go alone."
"I shouldn't mind tbe hardness. Perhaps I could persuade my brother to
go wltb me. That reminds me," she
snld, smiling back at him. "You know
my brother. He was in your class nt
Yale." •
"What, Martin Turner?" he cried.
"Wby, wo used to be great pals at college, but I haven't seen him for five
years; lost track of blm completely.
So you are Mart's Bister.   I am glad."
He looked very boyish ob he held out
bis band. "We must be very good
friends Indeed," he cried enthusiastically. "In fact, wo are very old friends
already, because I remember you very
well as a little girl when I visited Mart
once years before."
"How very, very funny and delightful!" cried the girl, laughing a delicious, rippling laugh. "I must make
Martin ask you to visit us again. We
will take you fishing and tramping,
aud you need not even bring a dress
cont.   Will you come?"
"Will I come?" be said In a tone that
sent the warm olood up Into her
cheeks.   "Just try it and see!"
"Perhaps," he snid as he held her
hand n moment longer than necessary
ns she left him—"perhaps you will let
ine join you and Martin on your Canadian trip.   Will you?"
"Perhnps," she said, turning away.
Then she looked back with a smile as
she entered the elevator. "If the red
gods call you, you must go, you know,"
The next summer there was a series
of articles on Canadian fishing In the
Twentieth Century Magazine signed
"Mabel Turner Monteith."
HI* Hobby.
A tourist passing through an English
village churchyard was much astonished to see graven on a tombstone a
list of feminine names as follows:
Mary I., Elizabeth, Mary IL, Anne,
Katharine I., Katharine II.
"Goodness gracious!" exclaimed he
to nn old sexton who was digging a
grave not far off. "I wasn't aware
there were any queens burled In this
part of tbe country, least of all In such
an outlying place as this."
"No more there ain't as I knows on,"
replied tho old fellow, scarcely looking
up from bis work.
"Well, then, In thnt case," queried
the still surprised tourist, "how comes
it thnt the names of several well
known British queens are to be read
on that stone yonder?"
"Ah, I see now!" quoth the old grave-
digger as be raised himself up and
glanced for a moment In the direction
referred to. "Lots of your sort make
that mistake; but, bless your soul,

Two Utile Stories- of Corot.
Wo have any number of anecdotes
about Corot. There Is one which explains the artistic mind. He had reported to his employer bow successfully he had sold n quantity of beautiful Lyons silks, and bo expected some
acknowledgment On tbe contrary, tbe
draper explained to him that there was
no merit In disposing of excellent goods,
as the real merit was to sell what was
bad, whereupon Corot perceived that
this wns exactly what an artist cannot
do, nnd be decided to quit commerce.
He obtained bis father's consent for
his career as a painter on what was to
him a large annuity of .300.
He was over thirty years old when
he first began to paint, on tbe very

The Undine danced merrily over tho
waves, the sull bellying under tbe
fresh breeze. Dick Ferris ut the tiller divided bis attention between the
boat and the girl in it She was a very
pretty girl.
"I told mother I was going to Daisy
Carter's. Ob, Dick, I wish we didn't
have to tell such lies."
"1 wish we didn't either, but it Isn't
our fault if our families are enemies,"
answered Dick cheerfully.
"1 don't kuow what 1 shall do, Dick,
when you are goue. Not to know thut
you still care—for you might find a girl
in tlie city you liked better, nnd then"—
"I might drop dead this Instant or
mnke my everlasting fortune In a
month. There's much more chance
that while 1 am lighting for enough
for us to get married on Miss Mui'Joiic
Ambeiiy will be finding out that she
has become engaged to a homely, ordinary, stupid Ineligible."
So did tbey talk after tbe manner of
lovers while the Undine Bcuddcd down
the bay.
"Is it n nice Island, Dick?" nsked
Marjorio as they ueured tbe little patch
of green bordered with the white baby
"It's going to be for once in Its life."
He came about under the lee of till'
island lu a little cove where a fallen
tree made u natural wharf. Theu together they went up under somo stunted cedars to eut lunch. It wns a good
lunch, wltb two fat slices of chocolate
cuke to end witb.
"Y'ou must think It very good, Dick,
for I made it especially for you, aud
If you like it, when we nro married—I
wonder will We over be married?"
"Surely — when I get any money.
That means a year or two, I suppose.
Uncle Bob promises n fine salary by
"Two years fs so awfully long to
wnlt It's so uncertain nnd our families being nt swords' points"—
"Let 'em row if tbey like. If I bnd
any ready money we could go off and
be married."
"They would never forgive us."
"They would when they found there
Wns no help."  Dick rattled some loose
change In his pocket. "That's the extent of my wealth, though, just now.
More souud than cents," he added,
laughing, as he rose to his feet. Let's
explore tbe island as if we were castaways. Castaways never need any
money, and that's a blessing."
They struck up through the woods on
a scented enrpet of pine needles until
they came on a cleared space wltb a
ruinous but.
"Why, I thought you said this was a
desert Island, Dick?"
"Deserted too. Crnzy Bill, an old
fisherman, used to lire there. His
ghost wanders about the Island yet,
they sny. He was a miser, so I suppose he's guarding his hoard."
"Is there really money buried here?"
"He used to bring money over to

this was a lovely Island, but now—1
feel as though the old mnn wns lying
In there now. Let's go where we can't
seethe place."
Marjoiie wns not satisfied until tbey
had put the whole Island between them
and the cabin. Then she seated herself on n shelf of rock left bare by tbe
retreating tide. Dick sprawled contentedly nt her feet while she tried the
effect of seaweed In his curly hair.
"Was there ever such a lovely day,
"One; tbe dny I met yon."
"I didn't think (hat day nice, nnd 1
don't believe you did. It wasn't until
the Bralnards' party flint I knew"—
"How do you know?"
"Why—well, yon were with that Crosby girl nil the evening, nml I didn't
like that, and you only danced once
with me, and I went home and cried."
Marjoiie Idly poked a stick into a crevice under n stone as she spoke.
"And yet the very next day you wero
so cool and distant there wns no get-
ling near you."
"That wits been use 1 really did care,"
returned Marjoiie, with an air of giving a complete explanation. "Doesn't
It seem strnngo that wus only hist
year? I wish—ob, Dlckl There's something in it!"
"Iu what?"
"In tho hole uuder Ibis stone. Move
the stone uwuy and see."
Dick lifted the stone nwny with same
difficulty. It bad covered a sort of pot
bole In the ledge. Dick thrust his arm
into It up to tbe elbows und brought up
nn oblong object so covered with weeds
nnd barnacles as to be hardly recognizable as a preserve jar. He laughed.
"It's a great find, isn't It?"
"Open it, Dick. Hurry! 1 Just know
there's something Inside. Buried treasure perhaps."
"Pirates don't use preserve Jars. The
cover is sealed. I'll have to break lt."
Dick cracked the jar on a stone as be
spoke, nnd lt fell apart, revealing a
big roll of bills tied up tightly. With
hasty fingers Marjorie untied tlie cord.
Fifties, hundreds and one $500 bill lay
crumpled and creased before thorn. It
came to a little over $2,000.
"It's plain enough," Dick said rapturously, "this hole was old Billy's

at the darkening woods behind her.
"Supposing bis ghost is watching us.
Let's get awny quick."
It was nearly dark when they reached the boat, nnd Marjorie gave a littlo
cry of dismay. "Oh, I promised I'd
be home by sunset, and I forgot all
about lt.   What shall we do?"
"There isn't anything to do. The
sun's down now, and lt will take us nt

"But they'll discover everything, and

When he spoke there was a ring of determination iu his voice.

Th* Man Who Dared.
Sir Stratford Cunning, one time British ambassador to Turkey, was a man
ef great distinction, but of a peculiarly
haughty spirit and fierce temper which
no mnn, even when he was "thrice
armed" with a just quarrel, cared to
provoke. Few natives ventured to
stand up to Sir Stratford, but occasionally he met hlB match, once In
Ahmed Vefyk Effendl. The episode Is
recorded in the autobiography of Sir
A. Henry Laynrd.
Ahmed was dining at tbe embassy
one evening when conversation turned
upon the imprisonment by tbe Turkish
police at Galata of some British subject, rascally Ionian or Maltese, who
hnd been seized In tbe act ot committing some crime that richly deserved
Ahmed attempted to Justify tbe conduct of the Turkish authorities. Sir
Stratford maintained tbat tbey bnd
violated tbe capitulations by apprehending a British subject without going through the required formalities,
which, lt may be observed, usually enabled tho criminal to effect bis escape.
Tbe dispute waxed warm, and the
expression on the countenance of the
ambassador announced an approaching
storm: Suddenly striking the table with
his fist, he exclaimed: "And supposing
1 went down myself to Galata with a
kavass to effect tbe release of tbe prisoner. What would your authorities
venture to do?"
"Why," replied Ahmed, with Imperturbable calm, "they would probably
put you and your kavass in the prison
to join blm, and they would only be
doing their duty."
The  Cull  of (he  Sea.
The worship of the sea apnears to be
pretty general throughout Melanesia.
In some of the FIJI Islands, for example, tbe natives attempt to propitiate
the sea by building a small house In a
retired spot near It, in which tbey set
out a table with ready cooked yams
and painted cocoanuts. Tbey then
drum with short bamboos morning nnd
evening for several successive weeks lu
order to summon the luvc-nl-wnl, or
children of tbe wnters, to the feast
thus provided.
Thoy build a Jetty to facilitate the
ascent of the sen spirits from tbe water
to the bouse and plant fltigs at certain
points to prevent them from wandcriug
Inland. Finally, the worshipers call
and whistle to tbe deities to encourage
them to enter, and, when tbey Imagine
this tins been done, they cnt the feast
The Inhabitants of tho Banks Islands
also pray to a being named Qat, who

Terrible Increase in the Number
of Deaths from This
It is Common to All Classes
and Conditions of
It Creeps Stealthily Into the System and Develops Into
Many Diseases.
Bright's Disease, Heart Disease,
Diabetes, Dropsy and Rlieu=
matism, are Among the
Forms it Takes.
Dodd's  Kidney Pills the  One
Remedy That Never Fails to
Cure it, No Matter How or
Where It is Found.
Of all the diseases tlio human body
has to combat in its struggle for
health, the one that is steadily growing in strength and terrors is Kidney
Disease. Quietly, stealthily ns a sor-
pont, it creeps on its victim till tho
latter is enveloped ih its folds, and
the greatest physicians the world has
ever known stand helpless before it.
As the last fold goes around the
struggling victim and the doctor
shakes llis head tend whispers
"Bright's Disease," hope fades to
nothing, and tho sorrowing friends
feel that death has marked their
loved ono for its own.
Tho alarming increase this terrible
disease is making is evidenced by tho
columns of almost every newspaper.
For not among the lowly ot the
earth alone does it look for its victims. Statesmen, judges, eminent
lawyers, and honored divines ure
numbered among those who in recent
months have geme down to thoir
graves with the fell marks of this
dread disease upon their bodies. In
fact, so provalent has tlie disease become that a celebrated New York
specialist stated recently that not
one person in a hundred was free
from some-taint of Kidney Disease.
It Is the secrecy ol Kidney Disease
that makes it the more dreaded. You
can fight an enemy in tho open with
somo chance of success, but if ho is
lying in wait to take you at an unwary moment your chances of successfully lighting him are terribly diminished. So it is with Kidney llis-
easo. Its first warnings arc so faint
as to be hardly noticeable, a slight
pain in the back that is charged up
to over exertion, a slight discoloration of the urine or a burning sensation while urinating that hardly attracts attention. That is all. But
that moans that Kidney Disease Is
at work gradually eating its way into your system. Tho pain in the
jack grows more severe, the urinary
trouble more complicated, swellings
under the eyes and of the limbs denote the coming of Dropsy, sharp
shooting pains in the joints and muscles tell that Rheumatism bus you
in its grasp, or perhaps u day or
two's illness lends to the culling ol
tho doctor, and suddenly the terrible
truth is forced upon you—Bright's
Disease has you in its grasp.
With this silent, relentless enemy
slowly but surely eating its way into prominence and marking thai
prominence by a yoatiy Increase In
the length of its death list, the do-
mnnd of 'hb—dajv-of tho hour, is
"Show us tho way of escape" Nature never put mankind In a critical
condition without providing a way
of escape—providing mankind were
wise enough to take the way provided. In this case the way of escape
is a simple vegetable remedy. It has
been befoi-e thejieople uf Canada for
thirteen years, and, like all the great
relievers of nature, has been first received and llrst appreciated by the
lowly in life, those known as the
common people of Canada.
Is it the common people of Canada
who die of Bright's Disease ? No, it
is the bright and shining murks,those
who aro stationed above,the bends of
tho mosses, Ask tho reason of this I
(io to the people who are practically
oxempt from Kidney Disease In its
worst form, and nsk them. With almost a single voice thoy will reply :
"We cure our Kidney ailments with
Dodd's Kidney l'ills, nnd they never
get a chance to develop into that
terrible disoaso that carries so ninny
prominent men into tho grnve.",
And so It is; tho man who docs
iiianuiil labor must hcnl Ills slightest
aches or they binder him in his work.
When ho bus backache ho cures it
with Dodd's Kidney Pills, and goes
on with his work; when he feels iv
twlngo ot Rheumatism he drives' it
out, of his body with Dodd's Kidney
Pills—nnd goes on with his work.
Necessity has taught him that - he
must cure hls'.Kidnc.vs to get lid (if
his pains,, for ho must work to live.
Mo  has  not  been  educated  to     thtU
standpoint where a prescription to
cure must be 'vhitten by a specialist
at a cost of dollars to every letter.
Ho may not even know that there
never was a disease that took In all
classes of the community but what
nature provided a cure within the
means of all classes of the community. What he does know is more to
the point than this. Ho knows that
Dodd's Kidney Pills will curo all
aches which experience has taught
him come from • the Kidneys. He
takes Dodd's Kidney Pills, and goes
on with his work.
Of course, there aro exceptions to
every rule. Even among common peoplo there aro those who neglect the
early warnings of Kidney Disease. It
takes exceptions to prove the rule—
but many of these exceptions prove
more—they prove that no case of
Kidney Disease is too far gone for
Dodd's Kidney Tills to cure. Bright's
Disease, Diabetes, Dropsy, Heart Disease—ull the varied forms of Kidney
Disease in its advanced stages—have
been met by Dodd's Kidney Pills,and
never once has Canada's great Kidney Remedy had to admit defeat.
From the Atlantic to the Pacific, and
from tho Groat Lakes to Hudson
liny, Dodd's Kidney Pills are used,
and .wherever used thoy have trlum
and wherever used they have triumphed over Kidney Disease in its
every form. Thousands of Canadians
are shouting their praises of the conqueror.
Just a few of those, who have neglected the early symptoms, reached
the more advanced stages of Kidney
Diseases, and found a cure in Dodd's
Kidney Pills are given below. There
aro thousands of others. Ask in your
immediate neighborhood. You will
not havo to go far to meet men, women and children who have either
warded off or cured the terror of the
present ago by using the old Canadian stand-by—Dodd's Kidney Pills.
llrifrht'a Disease has invariably yielded
to a treatment of Dodd's Kidney Pills,
no matter how yrm a hold it hod secured on Its victim. Possibly the most
talked of caso of recent date Is that of
Alice Maud Parker, of Shulienncadie,
Hants Co., N.S. The full story of this
case will bo found in the current number
of-Dodd's Magazine. Herewith a short
statement from the young lady's inciter
is appended '
Two doctors pronounced my dauhhtor's
disease Bright's Disease, and gave her up
to die. Her eyelids swelled till she could
hardly Bee; her legs from hor tinkles to
her knees swelled. Her belt in health
waa twenty inches, when she was at her
worst it was 48 inches. Thon she <*.ive
up all other treatment and started to
take Dodd's Kidney Pills. By the time
she nail taken the llrst box I saw h
change. It took a long time to bring
her balk to perfect health, bdt Dodd's
Kidney Pills did it. To-dny iny daughter Ih in  perfect health.

Shubenacadie,  Hants  Co..   N.S.
Diabetes Is another of the most fearful
and fatal forms of Kidney Disease that
has been cured by Dodd's Kidney l'ills,
and by no other medicine. Among thus*
cured of this terrible ailment is Mr.
Charles Gilchrist, for iifteen eyenrs Chief
of Police ot 1'ort Hope and afterwords
for twenty-two years Fishery Oversew
under the Dominion Government. He
makes the following statement :
I   waa   a    sutTerer   for   ten   years   with
Iliabetes and Kidney Disorder.    At time*
my urine wns of a dark brlcky color, nld
I    would     sulTcr     something   nwfal    while

but could get no help till I tried  Dodd's
Kidney Pills'.    They have made ine a new

Heart Disease is a result of Kidney Disorder. Bad Kidneys mean impure blood,
the action of impure blood on tho heart
causes Heart Disease. Dodd's Kidney
l'ills cure it :

Height's Disease, and Rheumatism. t

Dropsy, nnother disease caused by diseased Kidneys failing to do their work
and remove tho surplus water from the

Oliver  Cromwell.
Newbnrg priory claims the distinction of sheltering tbo remains of Oliver
Cromwell. After the protector's death
on his lucky day, Sept. 3, his body was
embalmed and, after lying In state for
some time, was interred witb regal
pomp In Westminster abbey. After
the restoration bis body, along with
those of Ireton and Brndsbaw, was exhumed and hanged on the gibbet at
Tyburn. The heads, so the story goes,
were struck off and placed on the top
of Westminster ball, while the bodies
were burled beneath the gallows. On
the other hand, lt Is said that another
body was substituted for that of Cromwell and that the protector was burled
secretly on the Hambledo'n bills. At
all events, at the top of Newburg priory there is a narrow room, one end of
which Is occupied by a mass of stonework built into tbe wall. Here, lt is

The name lead pencil Is a misnomer
made correct by custom. The so called
leads of a pencil are In reality a mixture of graphite and clay. Graphite Is
a word derived fr*om the Greek, meaning "to write." It is a native mineral
carbon of black color and brilliant metallic luster. To the touch lt feels
smooth, somewhat like soapstone, and
It breaks In a very flaky manner under
a very light blow. It Is so soft lt will
leavo a trace on paper. It la sometimes
called plumbago and has still another
name — black lead — from which, "of
course, we get the name lead pencil.
Graphite Is found in the oldest rock
formations, and deposits are to be
found In various parts of the world,
the most famous being those at Altai,
In Siberia, and at Tleonderoga, N. Y.,
In this country.

Mr. L. Goldlug gives in Chambers'

narrow escapes and curious fatalities
during tho siege of Ladysmith. "While
at lunch In their mess but, which waa

were engaged In n heated discussion.
In anger, ono of tho officers rose from
the table nnd hastily left the but.
Hardly had bo closed the door behind
him when a shell came hissing through
the air and pitched on tho roof of the
hut. Penetrating the Insufficiently protected roof, tho shell fell and exploded
In the center of the group of officers,
killing or mortally wounding every ono
of them. Tbe officer who a moment
before bad gone out of the hut did not
receive tbe slightest Injury." A doctor

A man's life Is full of crosses and
temptations, says Iho philosopher of
tho Atchison Globe. Ho comes into
this world without his consent and
goes out against bis will, and the trip
between the two Is exceedingly rocky.
The rule of contraries is one of tbe
Important features of tbo trip. When
bo is little the big girls kISS hlin, but
when bo Is grown the little girls kiss
hlin, lf lie raises a largo family bo Is
a cllllUip, but If be raises a small check
be is u llilef. If he Is poor bo Is 11 bud
manager; If lie Is rich he Is dishonest.
If he's In politics It's for pit", If bo's
out of politics you can't place blm, and
lie's no good for bis country. If bo
doesn't give to charily he Is a stingy
cuss; if ho does It Is for show. If he
dies young there was a great future
uhoad for blm; If be lives to an old
age be bus missed his calling. Ho Is
introduced into this world and lo the
next by the same process. The road is
rocky, but man loves to travel It.
A Story of C'ulticraon.
In tho Fifty-first congress, when
Speaker Heed first gained the title of
"czar" by bis arbitrary decisions, Judge
Culberson was ono of bis strongest
supporters, although ho gave tbe speaker no public Indorsement, for political
reasons. One afternoon while the Democrats were In n terrible tumult over a
decision of the speaker and tbe proceedings of the bouse wore very near
riot a thunderstorm came up. When
the confusion was highest, a blinding
Hash of llghlnlng and a terrible crash
of nature's artillery startled every soul
on the lloor and nm. ed a profound silence. Judge Culberson, llko everybody else, wns deeply moved, but was
the first to recover. "That was God
Almighty, sir, celling this house to order," bo i'..rlaitni'ii In an Impressive
tone, nddrosslng tbe speaker. Tben,
turning to hlB colleagues, he said, "Now
let us proceed to business like men."

The making of the separate skirt Is,
to the home dressmaker, second .In Importance only to the making of shirtwaists. But for the difference In size,
they would be equally easy or difficult
to make. With both, the principle governing all successful work—plan your
work beforehand—must be followed.
Afterward a regular order of doing
each .part should be followed.
First, select the pattern. Let It be
a plain one, that Is, with no tucks or
shlrclngs allowed. As ladles who have
the trouble, and pleasure, of making
their own garments naturally wish to
receive the largest possible return for
their efforts, lt la wise to select a design that will not be too conspicuous
among the ever-varying modes. The
Beven-gored pattern Is, for several reasons, the best of that kind. It ha*
gores enough to fit easily round the
hips without darts, and to give a graceful flare at the foot, but not enough to
confuse any but a seamstress of much
experience—as must Inevitably be the
case with a skirt with eleven or thirteen gores.
Reliable patterns state the quantity
required in all widths, the length of
skirt, front and back, and also both
waist and hip measure. Unless the per-
iion to be fitted has what. Is called a
roBrular figure, meaning one with hip
and waist size In proper proportion, lt
1b better to buy a pattern with the cor
rect hip size, rather than the walBt
size. The reason is thai it iB much
easier to "ensmall" the waist than It 1b
to enlarge the hips.
Measure the figure and regulate the
length of pattern before placing lt on
the material. When the pattern 1b not
sufficiently long, extend the gores two
or three inches «t the foot, being careful to preserve the iflare. If still more
length Is needed, cut across and separate the gores about two-thirds of the
length from the top. To shorten I
skirt—and this is much oftener needed—do the opposite thing; that Is, turn
up about two Inches at the foot, since
a shorter skirt must be proportionately narrower, and then finish shorten
ing by laying folds straight across the
pattern two-thirds the distance from
the top. See that the seam edges that
ore to be sewed together are of equal

The Fat Stock Show at New Westminster, Maroh 8th to 12th, was lacking
in the most essential features to eusuro
snecess—fat stock. Two cattle, two
sheep and Bovon pigs being the total
exhibits. Thus may be attributed to
the fact that at this season of the year
fat animnls aro usually more scarce than
at any other time. The idea is however
a .fiood ouo and its non success nt the
start through orror of judgment in no
way docs away with tho usefulness of
Buch nu excellent institution. The
notice was too short and the timo of tho
year wrong lo give tho farmers a chance
to make a display of their best. Experience dearly bought is said to bo tho
most valuable and in this cose may
prove doubly true. Success tbeu to the
New Westminster Fnt Stock Show nnd
may its shadow never grow loss I

Everyone will agree that a woman
looks her loveliest in the soft folds and
nutty furbelows of her negligees, and
this may be one reason why taste and
ingenuity are taxed to the uttermost
to produce something new and lovely
In these comfortable and becoming garments.
Satin ribbons are very much used upon negligees of the less expensive fabrics.
Whether It be expensive or cheap the
fashionable lace for trimming negligees Is airy and transparent In effect.
Some suitable materials for making
negligees, and. which cost a mere trifle,
are Chinese and Japanese silks, chal-
lies, veilings and other soft and rather
thin fabrics of similar weaves.
Pink is a favorite and moat ultra
Bmart  color  for   negligees.    Elaborate
trimmings,  soft  materials  and  round-
cut necks are features of the smartest
modish negligees.
The negligee tea-gown—Its elaborate
first cousin in the way of women's
clothing—is a truly feminine garment,
for In Its make and cut a woman may
be as capricious as she pleases, following no set fashion and no fancy than
her own sweet will. To Illustrate this,
I once saw .a woman at a Summer resort who sat on her front piazza arrayed in a tea gown of vivid purple trimmed with broad shoulders of as vivid
green. She had the taste to select
green and purple instead of pink and
blue ribbons for trimming, and otherwise she made lt plain thnt a woman
could suit herself in the color and make
of her tea-gowns.
A woman may hay.e ner negligee*
made so trimly or elaborately that she
appears quite dressed in them; she may
have them built so that she cannot
leave her room while wearing one; she
may have them loosely put together in
what we women call a sloppy style, or
she may have a negligee that Is practically a tea-gown,-in most respects.
As to trimming, both negligees and
tea-gowns may be trimmed to suit the
taste with either .lace or embroidery or
some of the other pretty trimmings to
be had now for that purpose. Trimming with bands of shirring, in fancy,
geometrical patterns, Is a fad that Is
productive of some very charming results, as In the Empire gown, and lace
insertion, with accordeon pleated effects Is another very modish trimming.
The Jacket is rather short and Is quite
full, and, like the skirt, is accordion
pleated, in close, narrow pleats, its entire length.
The Jacket is made of chiffon alternating with cream-colored lace of
transparent texture, and Is edged all
round with a wide ruffle of fine lace.
A deep shirred collar has the shlrrlngs
held in place with two very narrow
silk headings. The sleeve Is mode in
the same fashion and curves gracefully
upward on the Inner arm. Two rows of
lace are Inserted In the toj> of the sleeve.
This short sleeve has a deep hounce of
laoe and Is held above the elbow, bn
the Inslile of the arm, by loops and
bows of ribbon. The lace flounce of the
collar falls gracefully round the shoulders, while tbe accordion pleating of the
entire Jacket imparts an airiness to fabrics already dainty and fragile.
The full skirt of this pink chiffon
creation Is made up over pink Chins,
silk, which lends a faint flush to the
lace Inserting in the entire costume.
The skirt is made with three rows of
Inserting—their own width apart-
above a deep flounce. Two rows of In
sertlng- are arranged in the lower part
of the flounce In the same fashion. A
lace flounce is a.t the bottom of the
trimmed flounce, and this falls over
a deep ruffle made with three small
tucks and edged with a ruffle of the
same sort of lace that trims.

The Convenient Light is the
Electric Light
You have simply to touoh tho button und yonr office and room is brilliantly
lighted, falling over chairs; no matches; no nncleanlines*.; no danger.
Electrio lights can be made portable, so that you can hang them over your
dresser or shaving mirror, at the head of your bed, etc., and any desired
candle power may be obtained.
It is a Beautifying Light
Under its clear rays, faces and objeots do not have that pallid, dull appcar-
unce that is oansod by otber lights; on the contrary, it shows off everything to tho best a dvantage. As musio adds to the beauty of a voice, so
does the electrio light enhance the beauty of a face, the brightness of -a
smile and the sparkle of the eyes.
IT HAS NO FLAME—-it omits np nnhealthy fumes—it consames on
oxygen and does not vitiate the air—therefore it does not cause oi uggra-
vate asthma or other pulmonary diseases. It does not leak, ignite or
explode. It will not kill plants or ruin wallpaper or furnishings. It I*
everything that is he it as a light. Up-to-date establishments and people
of rcfluement use it.
