Municipal electiou. After the motion
was passed those who voted iu favor of
it left, and those to the contrary remained aud organized for tho purspose of

CHAPTER XIX.
FROSEIIPINA.
O tbo value received for Wolsey's friendship to Brandon
wns Mnry's promise to marry
Louis.
Mury wanted to send n message nt
once to Brandon, telling blm bis life
would be spared and tbat she bad
made no dcluy this time—a fact of
which she was very proud—but the
Tower gates would not open until
morning, so she bad to wnlt. She compensated herself as well us sbe could
by writing a letter, which 1 should like
to give you here, but It Is too long. She
told him of bis pardon, but not one
word upon the theme be so Wished yet
feared to bear of—ber promise never
to wed nny other man. Mnry hnd not
told blm of ber final surrender in the
matter of the French marriage, for the
renson tbnt she dreaded to pnln him
nnd feared he might refuso the sacrifice.
"It will nlmost kill him, I know," |
she Bald to June that night, "and 1
fear lt ls a false kindness I do blm. I
He would, probably, rather die than
that 1 siiouiQ marry anotuer. i Know
that I should rather die or have anything else terrible to happen than for
another woman to possess him. He
promised me be never would, but suppose he should fall ln his word, as I
have today failed in mine? Tbe thought
of It absolutely burns me." And she
threw herself Into June's arms, and
that little comforter tried to soothe
ber by making light of her fears.
"Ob, but suppose be should?"
"Well, there ls no need to borrow
trouble. You said he promised you, and
you know he Is one who keeps his
word."
"But I promised, too, and think of
whnt 1 nm about to do. Mary lu heaven, help nie! But bo Is mude of different stuff from me. I can and do trust
bis word, and when 1 tblnk of all my
troubles and when It seems that 1 ennnot benr tbem the one comforting
thought comes that uo other woman
will ever possess him—no other woman,
no other woman. I am glnd that my
only comfort comes from blm."
"I hoped that I might have been
some comfort to you. I have tried
bard enough," said June, who was jealous.
"Oh, yes, my sweet Jane. You do
comfort me. You are like a soothing
bulm to an aching pain." And she kissed the bunds tbat held hers. This wae
nil tbnt modest little Jane required.
She was content to bo a bumble balm
and did not aspire to the dignity of an
elixir.
The girls then said their prayers In
concert, and Mary gently wept herself
to sleep. She lay dreaming nnd tossing nervously until sunrise, when she
got up nnd added more pages to hei
letter until I called to take It.
1 was on bnnd soon after the Towel
gates bnd opened and was permitted
to see Brandon at once. He read
Mary's letter uud acted like every oth
er lover since love letters first began.
He wns quick to note the absence of
the longed for but uot expected assurance, and when be did not see it went
straight to tbe point
"She has promised to marry the
French king to purchase my life. Is
that not true?"
"I hope uot," I answered evasively.
"I havo seen very little of her, aud she
has suid nothing about it."
"You are evading my question, I see.
Do you know nothing of It?"
"Nothing," I replied, telling an unnecessary lie.
"Caskoden, you nre either a liar or a
blockhead."
, "Make It a liar Rrnn.1nn " ..i' ».
laughingly, for I was sure of my place
ln his heart and knew tbat be meant
no offense.
I never doubt n friend. One would
better bo trustful of ninety-nine friends
who nre false thnn doubtful of one who
ls true. Suspicion and supersensitlve-
ness nre nt once tlie badge and the
bane of n little soul.
I did not leave the Tower until noon,
nud Brandon's pardon had been delivered to him before I left. He was glad
that tbe first news of It bad come from
Mary.
He naturally expected his liberty at
once, and wben told tbnt he was to be
honorably detained for a short time
tinned to me nnd said: "I suppose they
are afraid to let me out until she is off
for France. King Henry flatters me."
I looked out of the window up Tower
street nnd said nothing.
When 1 left, 1 took a letter to Mary,
which plainly told her be bad divined
it all, nnd she wrote a tear stained nn-
swor, begging him to forgive her for
having saved his life at a cost greater
than her own.
For several days I was kept busy
carrying letters from Greenwich to tho
Tower nnd back ngaln, but soon letters
censed to satisfy Mnry, nml she mad*
up her mind that she must sec him.
Nothing else would do. She must not,
eould not and, lu short, would not go
another day without seeing blm—no,
not nnother hour. June uud I opposed
hor nil we could, but the best we could
accomplish wus to Induce her for Brandon's sake—for she wns beginning to
set' tbnt be was the one who bud to
suffer for her Indiscretions—tn ask
Henry's permission, and If he refused,
then try some other way. To determine wuh to act with Mary, so off she
wont withont delay to hunt the king,
taking Jiiiit.' ami me along ns escort.
How full we wore of Important business ns wo SCQITled along the corridors,
one on each side of Mury, all talking
excitedly ut once! When anything was
to be done, it always required three of
us to do lt.
We found the king, and without any
prelude Mnry proffered her request
Of course It was refused. Mary pouted
and was getting ready for nn outburst
when Wolsey bpokc up: "With your
majesty's gracious permission, I would
subscribe to the petition of the princess. She has boon good enough to
give ber promise in the matter of so
much Importance to us, and In so small
a thing as this I hope you may see
your way clear toward favoring ber.
The Interview will bo tbe last aud may
help to make hor duty onsler." Mary
gave the cardinal a Hooting glance
from her lustrous eyes full of surprise
nnd gratitude aud as speaking as a
book.
Henry looked from one to the otlier
of us for u moment and broke Into a
boisterous laugh.
"Oh, I don't care, so tbat you keep tt
a secret. The old king will never
know. We can hurry up tho marriage,
lie Is getting too muoh already—400,-
000 crowns nnd a girl like you. He
ennnot complain if be have an heir. It
would be a good joko on the miserly
old dotard, but better on 'Ce Gros
Gnrcon.' "
Mary sprang from her chair with a
cry of rage. "You brute! Do yon
think I am ns vile ub you because I
have tho misfortune to be your Bister,
or that Charles Brandon ls like yon
simply because tie is u num.- neury
laughed, his health at that time being
too good for bim to bo 111 natured. He
had all he wanted out of his sister, so
her outbursts amused him.
Mnry hurriedly left tlie king and
walked back to her room, filled with
shame and rage, feelings actively stimulated by June, wbo wns equally indignant.
Henry bad noticed Jane's flown, but
hnd laughed at her and had tried to
catch and kiss ber as she left, but she
struggled nway from him anil lied
witb a speed worthy of tbe cause.
This insulting suggest ion put a stop
to Mary's visit to tlie Tower more effectually than nny refusal could have
done, and Bbo snt down to pour forth
ber soul's Indignation in a letter.
Sbe remained at home thon, lint saw
Brandon later, and to good purpose, ns
I believe, although I nin not sure nbout
It even to this dny.
I took this letter to Brnndon nlong
with Mary's miniature—the one tlmt
had been painted for Charles of Germany, but hud nover been given—nnd
a curl of hor hnir, and It looked ns lf
this wns all he would ever possess of
ber.
De Longuevllle heard of Henry's
brutal cousent thut Mary might see
Brandon, and, with a Frenchman's belief lu woman's depravity, wus exceedingly anxious to keep them apart. To
this end be requested that a member
of bis own retinue be plnced near Brandon. To this Henry readily consented,
and there was an end to even the letter writing. Opportunities Increase ln
value doubly fast as thoy drift behind
us, and now that the princess could not
see Brandon or even write to hlin she
regretted with her whole soul thnt she
had uot gone to the Tower when sbe
hnd permission, regardless of wbat any
one would say or think.
Mary was imperious and Impatient
by nature, but upon rure nnd urgent
occasions could employ tbe very smoothest sort of finesse.
Henry's brutal selfishness ln forcing
upon her the French marriage, together witb his cruel condemnation of
Brandon and bis rile insinuations
against herself, had driven nearly every spark of affection for her brother
from her heart. But she felt that she
might feign an affection she did not
feel, and thnt whnt she so wanted would
be cheap nt the price. Cheap? It would
be cheap at the cost of hor immortal
soul. Cheap? What sbe wanted wt*
life's condensed sweets—the mun she
loved—nnd what she wanted to escape
wns life's distilled bitterness—mnrrluge
with a man sbe loathed. None but a
pure woman can know the torture of
tbat I saw this whole disastrous campaign from start to finish. Mary begun
with a wide flnnk movement conducted
under masked batteries and skillfully
executed. She sighed over ber troubles
and cried a great deal, but told the
king he bad been sucb a dear, kind
brother to her thnt she would gladly
do anything to please hlni nnd advance
his Interests. Sbe said it would be
torture to live wltb that old creature,
King Louis, but she would do lt will
Ingly to help her handsome brother, uo
mntter how much she might suffer.
The king laughed and said: "Poor
old Louis!   What about blm?    What

making sucb a fine bargain, but the
Lord pity him when he has my littlo

better employ some energetic soul to
prick blm with needles and bodkins,
for I think there Is more power for
disturbance In this little body than In
any othor equal amount of space In all
the universe. You will furnish him
all the trouble he wants, won't you,
lister?"
"I shall try," said the princess d«-
murely, perfectly willing to obey lu
everything.
"Devil a doubt of that, and you will
succeed, too, or my crown's n stew
pan." And he laughed at tbe huge joke
he was about to perpetrate ou bis poor
old royal brother.
It would seem that the tremendous
dose of flattery administered by Mnry
would have been so plainly self interested as to alarm the dullest perception, but Heury's vanity was so dense
and his appetite for flattery so great
that he accepted lt all without suspicion, and lt made him quite affable
and gracious.
Mary kept up hor show of affection
and docile obedience for a week or two
uuUl she thought Henry's suspicious
were allayed, and then, nfter having
done enough petting and fondling, ns
Bhe thought to start the eurth Itself
a-movlng—as some men are foolish
enough to Bay lt renlly does—she began
the attack direct by putting her arms
about the king's neck and pitoously
begging bim not to sacrifice ber whole
life by sending her to France,
Her pathetic, soul charged appeal
might have softened the heart of Caligula himself, but Henry was not oven
cruel. He was simply nn anlinal bo
absorbed ln himself that he could uot
feel for others.
"Oh. lt Ib out nt Inst!" ho Btild with
s laugh, "I thought all ibis sweetness
must have been for something, So the

You promised to go decently if I would
not cut off tbnt fellow's bond, and now
I toll you thnt If I hour another whimper from you off It comes, nnd you will

This brought Mnry to terms quickly
enough. It touched her one vulnerable
spot—her love.
'I will go; I promise lt agnln. You
shall never hoar another word thnt no
harm shall come to him—to blm." And
she put her bands over hor face to conceal ber tears as she softly wept

■The day you sail ror France Brandon shall go free aud shall again have

as a good companion, and really believe
you are more to blame tban be."
"I am all to blame, and am ready this
day to pay tbe penalty. I am at your
disposal to go when and where you
choose," answered Mary most pathetically.
Poor, fair Proserpina, with no kind
mother Demefcer to help her. The
ground will soon open, and Pluto will
bave his bride.
That evening Cavendish teok me
aside and said his master, Wolsey,
wished to speak to me privately at a
convenient opportunity. So when the
bishop left his card table an hour later
I threw myself ln his way. He spoke
gayly to me, and we walked down the
corridor arm in arm. I could not imagine what was wanted, but presently
It came out: "My dear Caskoden"—had
I been one for whom he could have had
any use I should have grown suspicious—"my dear CasSoden, I know I
can trust you; especially when that
which I have to Bay ls for tbe happiness of your friends. I am sure you
will never name me ln connection with
tbe suggestion I am nbout to make, and
will use tbe thought only as your
own."
I did not know what was coming,
but gave him the strongest assurance
of my trustworthiness.
"It ls this: Louis of France is littlo
better than a dead man. King Henry,
perhaps, ls not fully aware of this, and
if he ls ho has never considered the
probability of his speedy death. The
thought occurred to me tbat although

pllance, to extract some virtue out of
her sore necessity and Induce him to
promise that ln ense of the death of
Louis she herself shall choose ber second husband."
"MyWd," I replied, quickly grasping
the point "It ls small wonder you rule
this land. You have both brain and
heart."
"I thank you, Sir Edwin, and hope
that both mny always be at the service of you and your frieuds."
I gave tbe suggestion to Mary as my
own, recommending thnt sbe proffer
her request to the king in the presence
of Wolsey, nnd, although Bhe had little
faith or hope, she determined to try.
Within a day or two an opportunity
offered, and she said to Henry: "I am
ready to go to France any time you
wish, nnd shall do It decently nnd willingly, but lf I do bo much for you,
brother, you might at least promise
me that when King Louis Is dead I
may marry whomsoever I wish. He
will probably live forever, but let mo
bave at least that hope to give me wlial
cheer lt may while I suffer."
Tho ever present Wolsey, who wss
standing near and beard Mary's petition, Interposed: "Let me add my prayer to that of her highness. We must
give her her own wny ln something."
Mary waB such a complete picture of
wretchedness that I thought at the
time she had really found a tender spot
ln Henry's heart, for he gave tbe promise. Since then I bave learned, as yon
will shortly, that it was given simply to pacify the girl, and without any
intention whatever of its being kept,
but that, ln case of the death of King
Louis, Henry Intended again to nse
his sister to bis own advantage.
To be a beautiful princess ls not to
enjoy the bliss some people Imagine.
The earth is apt to open at any time
and Pluto to snatch her away to—tbe
Lord knows where.
Mary again poured out her soul on
paper—a libation Intended for Brandon.
I made a dozen attempts ln as many
different ways to deliver her letters,
but every effort was a failure, and this
missive met the fate of tbe others. De
Longuevllle kept close watch on bis
master's rival and complained to Henry about these attempts at communication Henry laughed and said he would
see that they were stopped, but paid
uo more attention to the mntter.
If Mary, beforo her Interview with
Henry, had been averse to the French
marriage, she was now equally anxious to hurry lt on, and longed to go
upon the rack In order that Brandon
might be free. He, of course, objected
as strenuously as possible to the purchase of his life by ber marriage to
Louis, but his better judgment told
him—ln fact had told him from the
first—that sbe would be compelled
eventually to marry the French king,
and common sense told him lf lt must
be she might as well save bis life at
tho same time. Furthermore, he felt a
certain sense of delight ln owing his
life to her, and knew that tbe fact that
she had saved htm, tbat her sacrifice
had not all been lu vain, would make
lt onsler for ber to bear.
Tho most lii'iiullful feature of tbe relations between these two lovers was
their entire faith ln each other. The
way of their true love was at least not
roughened by cobblestones of doubt
however Impassable lt was from mountains of opposition.
My inability to deliver Mary's letters
did not deter hor from writing them,
nnd ns sbo was to bo married ln a few
days—De Longuevllle to act as proxy—
Bho devoted her entire time to her letters nnd wrote pages upon pages, wblcb
sho left with me to be delivered "after
death," ob she called her marriage.
At this time I was called away from
court for a day or two, and wben I returned aud called upon Brandon at ths

_. „wer l rounn mm wniscnug ami singing, apparently as happy as a lark.
"You heartless dog!" thought I at
first, but I soon found that he felt more
than happiness—exaltation.
"Have you seen her?" I asked.
"Wbo?" As lf there were more than
one woman ln all the world for him.
"The princess."
"Not since I left her at Bristol."
I believed then, and believe now,
that this was a point blank falsehood,
a very unusual thlug for Brandon, but
for some reason probably necessary in
this case.
There was an expression in his face
which I could not Interpret, but he
wrote, as if carelessly scribbling on a
scrap of paper that lay upon the table,
tbe words, "Be careful," and I took
the hint—we were watched. There ls
an unpleasant sensation when one feels
that be ls watched by unseen eyes, and
ufter talking for awhile on common
topics I left and took a boat for Greenwich.
When I arrived at the palace and
saw Mary, what was my surprise to
find her ns bright end jubilant as I bad
left Brandon. She, too, laughed and
sang and was so happy that she lighted the whole room. What did lt all
menu? There was but one explanation. Tbey bad met, and there was
some new plan on foot—with a fatal
ending. The next failure would mean
death to Braudou ub certainly as the
sun rises ln the cast What the plan
was I could not guess. With Brandon
In the Tower under guard both day
and night and Mary as closely guarded
lu the pnlnce, I could not see any way
of escape for either of them, nor how
they could possibly have come together.
Brandon had not told me, I supposed,
for fear of being overheard, and Mary,
although she had the opportunity, was
equally noncommunlcatlve, so I had
recourse to Jane upon the first occasion. Sbe, by tbe way, was as blue
and sad faced as Mary was Joyous. I
asked her if tbe princess and Brandon
bad met, aud sbe sadly said: "I do not
know. We went down to London yesterday, and ns we returned stopped
at Bridewell House, where we found
the klug and Wolsey. The princess
left the room, saying she would return
tn a few minutes, and then Wolsey
went out, lenvlng me alone with the
king. Mnry did not return for half an
hour, and she may have seen Master
Brandon during tbat time. I do not
understand how tbe meeting could
have occurred, but thst ls the only time
she has been away from me." Here
Jane deliberately put ber head on my
shoulder nnd began to weep plteously.
"What ls the trouble?" I asked.
She shook her head: "I cannot, dare
not, tell you."
"Oh, but you must you must!" And
I insisted so emphatically that she at
length said:
"The king!"
"The king! God ln heaven, Jane; tell
me quickly!"
When urged, Jnne said between her
sobs: "He tried to kiss me and to—mistreat mo when Wolsey left the room at

Startling Case of Thos. Harrison, of St.

Himself.
St. Mary's Ferry, York County, N.
B., Sept. 18—(Special).—That Dodd's
Kidney Pills will cure Diabetes, one of
the most deadly forms of kidney disease, has beeu satisfactorily proved by
Mr. Thos. Harrison, of this place.
Speaking of his cure Mr. Harrison
says:
"I began to suffer with si.v'ere pains
above the region of the Kidneys. When
I lay down lt was torture to get up
again. My appetite failed and I lost
flesh rapidly.
"I doctored with several physicians
but lt was all no use. Shortly after
this I began to urinate blood and then
I knew I was In the grip if that dread
monster Diabetes.
At the time a friend prevailed on
me to try a box of Dodd's Kidney Pills
and they did me so much good I con-
alnued the treatment u_illl I had usod
three boxes. They cured me completely."

A writer who spends his summers at the seashore tolls the following story:' "An ignorant countryman who saw the sea for the flrst
time was much impressed with the effect of the blue water and asked a
fisherman lf he could tell him the
owner, as he would like to buy a gallon to take home to his wife. The fisherman replied proudly: "Us, mnn—
we own lt!" "Lands sakes!" exclaimed the rustic, "could you sell me a
gallon for fifty cents?' "Sure," said
the fisherman; and he disappeared, returning in a few moments with a jar
of water, for which he received the
countryman's fifty cents. Tl latter
departed with his purchase. Returning later in the day, after the tide had
gone out, he gazed In silent wonder at
the water, which had receded far from
the beach. "Lumme!" he exclaimed,
"don't they do a trade!"

Some  Regarded  ae   Harmless  Accused
of Causing Skin  Diseases.
Every one knows enough to give poison Ivy a wide berth, and the sufferer
from hay fever understands only too
well what particular plants have an Irritant action on his mucous membrane.
It ls not so generally known, however,
that plants usually regarded as harmless, even such as are commnly grown
Indoors for decoration, occasionally
poison those who come in contact with
them. Some instances of this kind are
given by a writer in Cosmos (Paris),
who states that house plants, or at
any rate a considerable number of
them, are dangerous, causing various
skin diseases.
We already know, says the writer,
the Irritating properties of the nettle
and those of the clematis of the hedge,
called also "beggar's weed" because
professional mendicants are in the
habit of producing with the leaves superficial eruptions that gain for them
the sympathy of compassionate hearts.
A largo number of planus have the
power of producing effects of the same
kind, and we see chronic eczemas
brought on by house plants.
M. Dubreullh, ln a memoir published In the Bordeaux Medical Journal,
recalls a number of cases of dermatitis
caused by primroses. A gardener who
had suffered from violent attacks of
eczema ln the right hand every spring
for nine years was relieved when he
excluded these plant* from his house.
Not less curious is the case, publish-
ed by Rotzdorff, of a woman who had
every year from 1894 to 1901 ln the latter part of Ootobcr, a violent eruption
on the hands and face, which did not
yield to treatment and would not disappear till spring. This lady always
received as a birthday present on Oo-
tober 15, several pots of China prim-
rose (Primula oboonloa), which she
cared for herself until spring, when
they were set out ln the garden. The
removal of the primrose oaused th*
eruption  to disappear.
Such Is also the story of another woman, who, having received a plant -of
China primrose, cultivated lt and suffered an acute eruption of the forearm and face, with Inflammation of
the eyes and eyelids. In this case,
and ln others that have been reported,
the Inflammation caused by the primroses was localized In the hands and
face. Nevertheless, lt ls not always
•o. Pizza has observed an eruption
on the chest of a lady who had carried on her person a bouquet of Chines*
primroses. Klrke attended a lady who
had a habit of biting oft and eating
primrose blossoms, and wbo had acuta
sores on her lips and ln the mouth.
Primroses are not the only house
plants capable of causing such eruptions. Quite recently, ln an article ln
The Munich Medical Weekly, H. Hoffmann, assistant to Prof. Lesser, of Berlin, reported that a woman, after having spent six hours In cutting chrysanthemums, was taken with Itching
and burning on the face and arms. Another case of the same kind, observed
ty Hoffmann, was that of a waller
tn a restaurant, who, after having
crushed between his fingers a leaf of
arbor vltae, touched his fac«. Soon he
was attacked by an erupt/on on the
face and hands which lt took ten days
to cure.
In his article, M. Dubreullh cites also
several species of Rhus, which ar*
used In America as house plant* on
account of their fine foliage. Som* people can not even touch these without
being attacked by eruption*. Th***
cases are worth noting. They constitute, however, exceptions and are rare.
A special predisposition ls necessary.
Those who are afflicted may, with some
precautions, continue to keep flowers.
They should touch them a* Utile as poi-
sible, and when the eruption takes
place, washing lt with alcohol to dissolve the Irritant matter and then with
soap and water will soon stop the
smarting and shorten the duration of
the malady.
Th* Quickest Rout*.
The new Allan Line turbine steamship Virginian arrived at Rlmou»kl at
4.15 p. m. on June 15. after making the
fastest passage from land to land ln the
history of the St. Lawrence route. The
malls, which she delivered at Rlmouskl
at 4.15 o'clock that afternoon, arrived In
Montreal at 4 o'clock next morning.
The mail was delivered to th* Virginian at Movllle at 2 o'clook Friday afternoon, June », so that they were delivered in Montreal ln seven hours
short of seven days, or faster by hour*
than they would have come by the N«w
York route. It was expected that th*
letters by the Virginian will be delivered at St. Paul, Minn., before the mall
by the White Star steamer Celtic,
which left a day before the Virginian.
The Virginian sailed from Movlll*
on Friday, June 9, at 2 p. m., and arrived at Cape Race in four day*, ten
hours and thirty minutes, thus creaf
Ing a new record from land to land over
the long southern route. She arrived
at Rlmouskl at 4.15 on the aftenoon of
June 15. Allowing four hours for th*
difference ln time between Rlmouskl
and Movllle, she occupied just six days,
six hours and fifteen mlnutea on th*
passage. The record made by th* Allan I.in.r Bavarian ln 1904 was seven
day*, five hours and twenty-two min-
utes, or twenty-three hours, seven minutes slower thnn Ihe Virginian. Th*
Virginian beat the Bavarian's record In
May, when she made th* run from Movllle to Rlmouskl In six days, thirteen
hours, and thirty minutes. The pa*-
sug* she has Just completed ts therefore faster than her prevlou* record.
It Is expected that when late ln th*
seasons the liners commence running
by the shorter route, through the
Straits of It'll" Isle, the Virginian will
bs ablo to mako the passage In a day
ies* than hor present time.

The Broken Down
IMc
Often Found In Persons Who are Apparently In Good
Health—Extraordinary  Effects  of
DR. CHASE'S  NERVE FOOD
It Is not always the pale and bloodless who suffer from nervous exhaustion, and when a person of apparent
good health finds himself almost helpless he gets little sympathy from
physician or friends and not frequently his Ills are attributed to the imagination.
Nervous diseases are slow ln coming on and patience is necessary In
their treatment. Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food Is absolutely certain to bo of
benefit to anyone suffering from exhausted nerves, for It supplies the very
elements of nature which go to create
new nerve cells and Instil uow vigor
and energy Into, the nervous iiystem.
Miss Lena Hlebert, Lowe Farm,
Man., writes:—"I suffered for two
years with dizzy spells, pains ln the
back, cold hands and feet, nervousness, jerking of the limbs, sore
tongue, soreness of arms and shoulders, and general exhaustion. About
seven months ago I became so ner-
f vous that I could not rest or sleep, and
could not do the least bit of work
without suffering dreadfully from pains
ln the back. I could hardly walk,
could eat very little, and felt that people were always watching my body
twitch.
"I tried several medicines with little
effect, and was a mere skeleton of skin
and bone about to give up In despair
when I heard about Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food and began using it. I have used
in all fourteen boxes of this preparation, and lt has built mo up until I
am now strong and well again. Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food has done me a
world of good, and I feel that I cannot recommend lt too highly to persons who suffer as I have."

Asslstant Attorney-General Charles
H. Robb, who became famous for his
work ln running down the postal
grafters a couple of years ago, began
the practice of law In a small village
ln Vermont. He knew all the people
of the town, as well as most of tbe
farmers ln the surrounding country.
"One day," said Mr. Robb, "a tall,
lank Yankee, a veritable David Har-
um, came into my office. It seems
that he had got Into trouble as a result of trading a cow. He had succeeded in palming off on an unsuspecting neighbor an uncertain looking animal which proved to be stone
blind. In addition lt was run down
generally. On finding that the cow
couldn't see, the farmer who had been
imposed upon brought suit against my
client. I questioned the man. " 'Did
you tell this farmer that the cow was
blind?' '"Indeed I did,' protested my
client, with a sheepish look, 'I told him
that she didn't look well.'"

The late General Benjamin F. Butler, according to the Boston Herald,
told the following on himself: "Several years after the war the General
had occasion to visit Georgia, and
from a town on the railroad took a
two-seated ramshackle vehicle, driven
by a typical southern darkey, for his
place of destination. The General entered Into conversation with tho driver, and learned that he was one of
eleven boys, and that he had a twin
brother. He asked the driver his
name. "Abraham Lincoln Backus,"
was the answer. "A fine noble name,"
said the General. The driver was
quiet a moment, then suddenly said:
"Wat yo' think dat twin brudder's
name is?" "I havo no idea," said the
General. "His name is Benjamin F.
Butler Backus." The General appreciated the compliment, and was thinking It over when the driver added:
"Boss, I was always glad dat I was
born first."

Andrew Carnegie tells this as one
of his experiences at Skibo. Soon after he had bought Skibo there was a
circus exhibiting in the neighborhood
of the castle, and one of the main attractions was an orang-outang. One
night the orang-outang got out, fell
over the cliff and was killed. In the
morning two of the keepers looking
over the grounds ran across the body
of the dead orang-outang. One of them
scratched his head and said:—"He's
no Hlelander, that's sure." The other
said: "He's no Lowlander, they
havena got that much hair on 'em."
After awhile one of them proposed to
the other as follows: "I'll go up to
the kirk and see the minister, and you
go up to Mr. Carnegie and see if any
of his American gentry are missing."

q What is meant by
* 'Protein ■ in flour?
"Protein" in food is the food element that makes bone, muscle and
brain.
Pure flour contains more protein,
in most useful form, than any other
food—but the flour must be pure.
Bran and shorts are waste—if your
flour contains this waste, it is proportionately short in ''protein."
Now, if you buy an inferior, poorly
milled flour, you are paying for bran
and shorts, not ''protein," and to that
extent you are wasting money.
ROYAL HOUSEHOLD FLOUR
is milled to make it the purest in the
world: therefore it contains most
protein, is most nourishing, is most
economical to use.
It pays the housewife to insist upon
getting "Royal Household" guaranteed flour, instead of taking a poorer
flour which the grocer may be interested in selling

on Grauville street be repaired and thai
$8 000 should be expended immediately
to render it safe. "The Advocate" has
been for several weeks in its columns
stating the need of repairs oi bridge!
across False Creek, and we hope Mr.
Oleutout will not rest until he has
thoroughly examined the Westminster

DON'T TAKE YOUR TROUBLES
TO BED.
You  may  labor  your   fill,   friend   of
mine, if you will;
You may worry a bit, if you must
You may treat your affairs as a scries
of cares,
You   may  live   on  a   scrap  and  a
crust;
But when the day's done, put it out
of your head;
Don't take your troubles to bed.
You   may  batter  your  way   through
the thick of the  fray,
You   may  sweat,  you   may  swear,
you may grunt;
'You may be a pack-fool if you must,
but this rule
Should ever be kept at the front;
!Don't fight with your pillow, but lay
down your head
And kick every worriment out of
the bed.
"That friend or that foe (which he is,
I don't know),
"Whose   name  we  have   spoken   as
Death,
' Hovers close to your side, while you
run or you ride,
And he envies the warmth of your
breath; v
But he turns him away with a shake
of his head,
When he finds yon don't take your
troubles to bed.

At the regular meeting of South
Vancouver Council on Saturday, Nov.
uStli. a letter from the Vancouver
City Council was read saying it was
proposed at a meeting of the Council
that a road joo feet wide should he
buiit irom Granville Street, on the
! height of hind south of Fairview to
I Point Gray, and that as the land was
outside the Municipality of Vancouver
the request could not be dealt with
by the City Council, but the City
offered to give its support on endeavoring to get the C. P R. and the
Provincial Government to consent to
such opening. The Clerk was directed to say in reply that if the South
Vancouver Council wishes a road 300
feet wide it has power lo expropiate
the same and the Council notes that
the City does not offer to bear part
of tlie cost of opening such a road,
nnd tliis Council thinks that as the
City cannot afford to open up its 8
feci of Sixteenth Avenue, as it says
in its letter read at the meeting, and
which it has several limes promised
to do, it can hardly afford to build
n .100 feet road, This Council proposed in i!__i.|. 1K0.1, 1895 antl in 1904
In have a rtiad 150 feet wide from the
Magee Road round Point Gray to
Jericho, and still thinks this to be the
most  desirable route

Gibson Road to the Westminster

for same.
The sum of $200 was ordered to he
paid on the Collingwood Road contract; the Cedar Cottage Road, from
the station towards the City, to he
paid for when pased by the Board of
Works; Twcnlyscconil Avenue is also
to be paid when completed.
W. Anderson received $150 on account of his Bodwell Hill contract.
The tenders for Nineteenth and
Twenty-first Avenues and for the
Buckberry Road, were not let, and
new offers are to be asked to be in at
the next meeting of the Council.
J. Edgertou will build live chains
of road between Blocks 26 and 27, in
District Lots .391 and 392, for $14.90
per chain.
The Council having been notified
that the small rock-cruslicr was
wrecked in a collision west of Winnipeg and all the material sent back to
Brantlford, the Reeve was authored to cancel the order for the same.
Six dollars per month is to he paid
to Klisha Burcli as relief, Mr. W. Daniels having granted him a place to
live in and a small house has been
built by some residents on the River
Road.
The Electric Railway Company is
to be asked to put street crossings
on Twenty-fourth Avenue, on the
Cemetery Line, antl also on Cedar
Cottage Road and the Flctt Road, on
'.! e Westminster  Line.
The Reeve was asked to interview
the Manager of the B. C. IL. Railway
Company in regard to putting some
electric lights on the Westminster
tramway line, and also on the Cemetery  line.
Tenders arc to be asked for building the Bodwell Road from Centre
Road to Block 55, in District Lot
2027, also for building a road from

Ladies' neckwear, in both plain and
fancy effects emphasizes the vogue
lor ruchings. In fact, niching plays
in important part in all kinds of neckwear. Jabots, stocks, lace effects,
chiffon creations and taffeta show a
finishing of niching in white or colors,
though white i« given the preference.
Paris is setting a vogue for higher
neckwear, and some effects arc being
worn there in wliich there is a ten-1
dency 10 point at the sides. The same
tendency is to be observed among j
waist manufacturers, who arc making
their garments with higher collars,
md makers of women'., laundered i
collars arc following suit. FortUli

They should always be soaked for
an hour in plenty of plain cold water
previous to washing, as the cold bath
draws out the sulphur used ill dressing the wool. If this precaution is
not taken, and tlie blankets arc washed at once in hot water, in the usual
way, they acquire a dull, dingy tint
which is sometimes impossible to remove. New blankets also require
to have the water changed a great
number of limes before they look
really clean.
