The cry is that the theological stu

think the world should take care of
him, rather than that the laborer
should strive to make himself worthy
of his hire. Mayhap the charge is
sustainable, but of a certainty' taking the country over) there is the
greatest need of the pew, in a large
number of the churches being trained
to keep its salary covenants with the
ministerial workers they engage. It
is required that the pastor shall be a
man of culture, and presentable as to
appearance, and that he and his family shall maintain at least a decent
standard of living. But how much
responsibility do the members feel
individually for the bringing about
of these results? Often, after the
representatives of local churches
have appeared before the bodiei that
perform the office of the assignment
of pastors to charges, and they have
deliberately promised that the minister's salary shall be paid promptly
and regularly, they default, and place
ihe unfortunkte clergyman in that
inost humiliating position of begging
for small portions of large sums due,
in order that he may keep his family

from actual want of the barest necessaries of life.
It is not considered etiquette for
the pastor to press his debt on the
attention of the officers of the church
There may be due to him hundreds
of dollars, but it would toe shockingly
indelicate of him to ask for a conference of the church officers to consider ways of giving him his dues.
.Occasionally ai pastor, mivrc (independently plaqed than) others, will
have the temerity to take his deacons to task for not fulfilling the promise they made when engaging him,
and likely as not he will be met with
the dishonorable statement that the
promise was only a matter of form.
Many church officers, apparently,
regard their pastors as a pensioner
whom they can insult and impose
upon financially, treating him as they
would never dared treat their coal
dealer or butcher. Such dishonesty
not only entails privation and anxiety on the minister and family, but
it also places him in a most disagreeable position, and compels him to
accept as gratuities much that he
would pay for if he had what is due
him.
Were any other class of employers
to withhold wages, as church officials
do the salaries of their ministers, the
press of the country would team with
denunciations, and public sentiment
would not be long in compelling justice to be done the employee. The
pastor, however,, 'cannot appeal to
the press, nor can he get up mass-
meetings to ventilate the injustice
done him. He must suffer in silence
as he has done for this long time.
But there is no reason why all the
denunciation, so widely current at
the present time, should be centered
wholly upon politicians and insurance officials. As there is ethical
house-cleaning going on, there is
every reason that the church officials
who act dishonorably toward pastors
in financial matters, should not be
included among those who arc held
up for the reprobation of the community. By their financial dealing
with their pastors, many churches set
a contemptible example of oppression of the helpless, and it is to be
hoped that some day they will be
brought to book.

Cachemires arc being recognized
as the most desirable, as they arc extremely fashionable materials for
wear at the winter seaside resorts,
cither near town or far along the
south Atlantic coast. This fabric
may be made 10 express an almost
rigid severity by avoiding other trimming than a few molds of itself, or,
by the use of handsome laces, it becomes at once a smart affair, after
Ihis manner  as  an  example;
-White Cachemire Costume.
The same cestupie in all white, including not only the velvet accessaries, but the hat and parasol, with
the exception of the lace, which to
he in a modish contrast should be in
tint yellowish butter tint, or the
darker twine color, selecting for that
purpose some one of the antique
lues. There is still so strong a pre-
'' ven t- for Irish lace that in all cases
this lace has to be excepted, and in
one case, can anyone imagine any-
tning more charming than the foundation of hit, jacket, and parasol as|
well as stole of skirt, when of Irish
l'.ce. in its milk whiteness. Tims
it is that these cachemires do b;-
- mif affairs nf full dress, whereas
the same ideas, carried out less extravagantly, also make up for smartness most successfully.
Light  Colored Cachemire.
Besides all that fin be said in fav
or of white cachemire, wc have but
to choose in the pale pastel colors
-~-one of the many—to set about
planning other pretty costumes on
Phe same line with dyed laces which
are to this date so modish.
The choicest of these cachemires
are the lavender-grays, the pink apd
the yellow-toned fawns, all the beige
tints, evcif those approaching whiteness. They hace a quality ditinction
of theirown. As for the lightblucs.
rose pinks and mauves the dyed
laces rather throw a common, or gar
den air over such costumes, whether
from too great abundance of color
combined, or the fact that the lace
and cachemire in such tints do not
produce a refiner harmony. But it
is all a matter of argument, once
fashion smiles on these vivid results.
■Ribbons Trade.
V
Tinsel ribbon is one of the new
things in millinery. Last year the
gold and silver tinsel ribbon were
used, but the season brings out the
lustre finished ribbons in colors. It
has the same effect as the gold and
silver ribbons, only it reflects a pale
lavender,   pale  blue,   pale   green   and
other  delicate colorings.
Much ribbon is employed in the
making up of the newest neckwear
pieces, and it is used with excellent
results. Some of the dainty collars
show ribbons embroidered in floral
designs, and leaves done in chiffon
or taffeta. There are a great number of jabots of Ohantilly lace in the
high-class numbers which show
French ribbons embroidered. Ribbon people are making a splendid
thing out of the neckwear trade.
Dressmakers declare there is an
appreciable swell in the newest skirt-
model lines, which fail completely to
define the figure as heretofore. Fortunately, no one is paying particular
attention to it, and the fullness of
skirts continues to be concentrated
at the foot. But are we to interpret by it a hidden motive to accustom the eye, in other words, to anticipate future changes which will
necessitate shore crinolines? The
saving condition under present
modes, requiring such full skirts, is
the lightness and suppleness of the
materials used, whicll cling to the
figure, and allow the grace of movement to be quite perceptible. As
long as all fabrics remain in this
light weight, we may consider ourselves safe from wire tapes or other
artificial skirt supporters.
In order to give a skirt for a stout
figure the effect of fullness and yet
not to enlarge the hip effect, the
skirt was cut circular from the side-
front seanis and groups of sun-plaits,
five in number, starting from one
inch wide at the waist-line, jind flaring out wider towards the hem, were
pressed in the cloth. These groups
were about three inches apart and
the skirt fitted tight over the hips
making the effect of a plaited skirt,
as tbe fullness at the bottom allowed
the plaits to stay in place. This
skirt gives no added bulk to the hips
and has the effect of a kilted skirt.

ne stopped and gazed at her earnestly. •
"Well?" she asked, as he paused.
—"That you will not treat mo aB
if I were an enemy—as if I had planned the shipwreck and the—the marriage from sheer malice. Sec, now,
Misb Nina, you and I are tho victims of Fate. It was not my doing
thnt you and I were left alone on
this desolate placo, but tho will of
Providence—"
"I know, I know!" she broke in.
"I am not blaming you. But for
you I should not bo alive at this
moment. Oh, I am grateful for all
you havo done for me; but, oh, don't
you see how I am placed? I want
you to promise that you will not-
not claim me, if we escape, if wo
reach England; that you will nol
tell anyone that—that we were married."
"I promise," he said,  gravely.
"And I promise on m.v side." she
responded, earnestly. "If Heaven
should befriend us and help us to
get away from this dreadful island,
I swear that I will not tell a living
soul that—that poor Mr. Fleming
persuaded us to be—married."
"Agreed!" said Mannering, grimly.
She drew a long breath of relief
and rose from tho table.
"What a wind is blowing!" she
said in a more cheerful voice.
"All the better for us; it is blowing from the right quarter," he said.
"But it is blowing very hard," she
remarked. "See how it shakes tho
saloon! I—I am glad we havo agreed
so well, Mr. Mannering. I will go
now. You say we shall be able to
sail to-morrow?"
"Yes, to-morrow," he said, rising
as he spoke.
She wished him good-night and
went out, and Mannering lit his pipe
und sat pondering. The vein of reflection which he struck was not a
flattering one. The girl he had married was so indifferent—disliked him
so much, to put it plainly—that she
hud bargained with him to conceal
their marriage. And ho had consented. He drowsed over his pipe for half
on hour or so, then ho rose anil
made for his hut. But when ho camo
ln eight of tho spot whero Nina's
hut had stood, ho stopped short
with his heart in his mouth. The hut
was no longer thero and only a litter of poles and undergrowth remained.
He ran, calling upon her name, antl
found her lying on the ground, with
one of the heaviest poles across her
slim  'orm.
With a Herculean effort he dragged
tho pole from off her and, raising
her in his arms, called upon her frantically:
"Nina, Nina! Ara you killed—dead?
Nina!"
Her eyes, upon which his frantic
gnzo was fixed, did not open, but he
felt her shudder in his arms, antl,
unconsciously, he pressed her still
more closely to his breast.
"Nina, Miss Nina, are you hurt?"
he called, his lips closo to her cars,
for the storm had risen again. "Oh,
speak to me! Try—try to speak to
me!"
She opened her eyes, and as a flash
of lightning lit up their violet
depths, a gasp of relief, of thanksgiving,  escaped  his  trembling lips.
"Oh, thnnk God! I—I thought you
hnd been killed. Aro you—are you
hurt?"
She clung to him—still unconsciously-
"I—I don't know!" she breathed
with labored breath. "The—the hut
fell in as I entered— Oh—I—am going! Hold me!"
He held her tightly to his    breast,
|nil, not knowing what he was doing,
his lips to hers.

he struggled faintly,  feebly,    but

carried her into his hut and laid her
' on his bed.
"Now rest there. Try nntl sleep!"
he exhorted her in a low and gentle
voice. "Let mc seo if you are hurt.

"I don't think you are badly hurt,

"No, no!" she gasped. The gentle,
commisseratlng touch of his strong
hands wns like an anodyne and hypnotized her. "I am in no pain; 1 am
not hurt.   If—if you will go now—"
He roso at last, but still bent over her, his face lined with anxiety.
"All my fault!" he muttered. "_et

"No, no, I'm not hurt!" she gasped
once moro, but in so low, so feeble a
voice, that he bent low on his knees
to catch lt.  "Co—now."
He went at last, slowly, reluctantly, and with a backward glume that
held pity—and was it something
warmer?—In it.
The storm fell ns suddenly as it
had risen; und Mannering slowly and
with immense cnlm und patience rebuilt Ninu's hut. His henrt wns full
of pity for her—of something warmer, of which he was only partly and
dimly conscious.     He did not   know
that he had kissed her, that his
words, his actions had been full of
love, of a man's love, for the woman.
And Nina! Sho lay awake tossing
from side to side—on his bed. The
memory of the kiss burnt in her consciousness, She hud lain in his
arms; she had yielded herself to
him; she had, though ho did not
know it, been glad of his embrace,
the touch of his lips.
Maiden shame burnt like a lire
within her bosom—a tierce, merciless
fire. Had he known, guessed at, tho
thrill of surrender that had run
through her at his embrace? Had ho
known what his kiss meant to her?
Liko a flash of lightning from the
rent skies she knew that she loved
him. This man who had saved her
life at least twice—first from the sea
and secondly from the Lascar—who
had watched over her, gutirded her,
provided for her life's daily needs,
was more to her than life itself—was
the being one means when one whisper "lover." And he was her husband by the caprice of Fate—her husband against his will.
Had ho kissed her or did she imagine it? If he did it made matters
ten thousand times worse, for he had
kissed her in pity, not in love. Not
in love, for did he not curry in his
breast the portrait of another woman?
She rose, feverish and parched
with thirst; but above her physical
suffering towered her mental, spiritual agony. She loved him and he—
Tho fair lace of thnt other woman
rose before her mockingly, tauntingly, and embittered, poisoned the
glorious, wonderful dawn which rose
as a daily miracle upon the fairy
island.
As if impelled by the spirit of her
maidenly pride, which would not let
her rest, she went down towards the
beach. On her way she had to past,
the saloon, and, after a moment's
hesitation, sho opened (he door and
looked in.
Mannering lay at full length before the fire, his head resting on his
arm, on which was the lilood of a
wound caused b.v one of the falling
beams. His face was troubled, his
breath came short and painfully. Hor
own grew labored and painful us she
bent over him, and her love for him
welled up in her heart and rati over,
so that it was hard for her not to
touch him, if with her finger tips only. As it was, she bent so low that
her lips nearly touched his, and her
Ivreath stirred his hair. But alas, and
alas! at that moment he moved in
his sleep and she heard him murmur,
"Judith, Judith!"
She roso as if somthing had stung
her, and in a conflict of emotions
went, down to the beach. It was high
tide nnd the raft tugged nt its moorings. She gnzed at it thoughtfully,
then the color rose, to her palo face
and  her eyes glowed  with an  idea.
She knew that if she remained on
the island with him her Iovo would
betray her. Why should she not go?
Here wero the moans—the Providential means—of escape. Tho provlsftns
which Mannering had prepared wero
close by the raft; it was ns ready for
use as on the day he hnd intended
that she nnd poor Fleming should
set sail. )Vhy should  she not go?
She might reach the group of islands of which Mannering had spoken;
on the other hand she might not. At
any rate she would have saved her
self-respect—would save herself the
shame of revealing her love for this
man.
The Idea, the thought, sent the
blood to her fnce. She ran up to the
hut and put her sparo clothes in a
bundle, and wrapping the marriage
certificate nnd Fleming's diary in a
piece of oilcloth, put them in the
bosom of her dress, then returned to
the beach and the raft.
But she could not go without a
word of farewell. Sho was fleeing as
much from herself ns from hint, but
she owed him a word of explanation
—of good-bye.
She tore a blank leaf from Fleming's journal and writing on it, "I
am going for both our sakes. Remember our promise. Ninn," fixed it
with a stone to the rock nearest the
spot where the raft flouted. Then she
took the box of nrovisions on board.
set the rnft loose from its moorings,
ran up tho sail to the mast, and
pushed oft" into tho rolling sea.
Mannering did not awake until
some hours later. His phenomenally
hard work of the pre\ iotis day and
the stress and strain of the cientB
of the night had exhausted him. He
worked with the guilty consciousness
of being "late," and iie went about
tho routine tasks of the morning.
He luid and lit the tire and filled
the can with water; nnd nil the time
he was performing Hie tasks he was
doing so mechanically, with the memory of last night's experiences humming in his brain. He had held Nina
in his arms. Had he—had he kissed
her? Had he spoken n word of the
love for her that welled up in his
henrt?
Ho would know when he saw her—
whon he looked Into her eyes. Would
she he angry, resentful? ho asked himself. Poor girl, poor girl! Should he
tell hor thut hu hnd learned to love
her, thnt he Wn-nted her for a wife in
more thun ntiine?
He went up to-the hut intending to
call her—to get her outside and have
It out with her, 4,bcre and then. After all, sho was his wife. His wife!
He murmured  the Words    to    himself
DOPDS '

fondly, with n thrill of passionate
longing. His wife! How much lt
meant to him!
But he would not call her. No
doubt she was tired. He would wait,
and at breakfast, as they sat opposite to each other, like husband and
wife, he would open his heart to her
—would tell her that he loved her,
would—yes, claim her!
He went back to the saloon. No
breakfast was laid; but he made up
the fire and sat down to wait patiently. Half an hour passed, then,
thinking that he had better call hor
—that she would be angry if he did
not do so—he went up to his hut and
knocked at the door.
No answer came, and after knocking again, he Btrolled down to the
beach. He missed the raft in an instant and stared with surprise at the
place at which it had been moored.
Then the piece of paper fluttering under the stone on the rock caught his
nttention. He went to it, took it
from under the stone and read it.
Read it not once or twice, but a
dozen times; then stood gazing with
unseeing eyes and torture-racked
heart out to the sea on which the
frail raft had ventured, bearing away
from him the girl he had learned to
love as only Btrong men can love.
CHAPTER VIII.
Mannering sank on to the rock on
which Nina had plnced her farewell
letter, and, covering his faco with his
hands, sat motionless as a statue of
grief. He did not think of himself—
of tho awful solitude to which her
flight had doomed him. Only one
thought racked hiin, and that was
that she had flown because she was
afraid of him. She had preferred to
trust the treacherous, murderous sea
rather than him.
It was a hideous reflection, and lt
nearly-drove him mad. She had not
waited until tho boat had been
launched, but had taken the raft-
had run all and every risk rather
than remain another day on the island with him or confide herself to
his care in a joint voyage.
Hours passed and he still sat stir-
ing with vacant eyes at the sea. It
did not occur to him to lounch the
boat and attempt to follow her.
What good would it be if he came up
with her? She would probably
throw herself into the sea at his approach, she was to proud, so mistrustful of him. He got up at last
and wandered about with the air of
a man distraught. Every now and
then ho plucked a flower or picked up
a shell and gazed at it as if it wero
of the most ntense interest to him,
but ho was scarcely conscious of what
he held in his hand. He felt neither
hunger nor thirst; but after a time a
strange feeling of exhaustion, ot
craving for sleep, came over him,
anh he dropped down just outside his
hut and fell into a deep sleep.
It probably saved his reason and
prepared him for the still heavier
blow that Fate was to deal him.
He slept right through tho night
and past the dawn: and it was the
soughing of tho wind and tho harsh
crash of tho waves of the beach that
awoke him. It had been raining
heavily and he was wet through, but
ho did not feel cold, for fever was
warming his blood with a baleful
heat. As he stretched himself back
came his misery with a sharp torture; and with a groan he dropped
his arms to his side and looked
round as if he wero trying to persuade' himself that it was a dream,
and that lie should see Nina coming
swiftly toward him.
But instead of the vision of her
fair, fresh grace and beauty, his
burning eyes fell upon something on
the beach. Long before he had
reached it he saw what it was.
It was the raft, or rather the remains of it. Tho sail had gone, the
mast was broken, half tho logs had
been torn away; the thing had been
wrecked in the storm which had raged while he slept, and tho lnooming
tide hail cast it at his feet.
And Nina! While he stared from
tho wrecked raft to tho sea and hack
again from the sea to tho raft a
small object floating on tho water
caught his eye.
He fixed his gaze on it, beginning
to tremble and shake, flung himself
into the water and swam for the
thing. When ho caino back with it
clutched in his hand, his face was
whito and his eyes starling.
It was the little woollen cap Nina
had worn.
Panting with his exertion and the
agony that the assurance of her
death caused him, ho lay full length
on the .su in I, his faco upturned to
the sun which broke out Buddenly
and mocked him pitilessly.
It was three tlnys after this that
in a dogged, sullen fashion ho hauled
tho canoe down to the beach, and,
putting in some provisions, mado
ready to sail. Ho was going, not
because ho had any desire for life or
to go back to civilization, but because the island had become Intolerable to him. You see, it was impossible to forget hor iu a place of
which every feature kept her vividly,
agonizingly in his memory, nnd he
knew that if he remained any longer
brooding, brooding over his loss ond
the trngic circumstances attending it
that ho must inevitably go mad.
Once or twice, in his terrible solitude, a devil in his brain called
"Suicide" had whispered alluringly
to him. Ho was going because there
was just enough of tho spirit of a
man left in him to make him shrink
from insanity and self-destruction.
For tho Inst time ho wandered
over tho familiar scene, the exquisitely beautiful place which his dawning
love had been rapidly transforming
into Home; but it was a hell now.
His Inck-lustro eyes fell upon tho
heap of gold quartz which lay outside Nina's hut, but it did not keep
hia attent'on for a moment, and it
nover occurred to him to take even
a specimen. Of what use was wealth
to a man who had lost all hopo in
life and only craved a natural and
painlesstleiith?
Instinct rather than any desire 1.0
choose a favorable time made hlni
wait until- the turn of tho title; then
ho got into his canoe and, keeping
his gaze fixed seaward, set Bail The
weather was more favorable to him
thnn it hatl been to poor Nina, and
Carried him duo south. Onto or
twice he thought how full of joy and
hope he would have been if she hnd
been wilh him in the boat, and ho
sighed with callous Indifference to his
good fortune. Why had Fate not
spared lier instead of him—her so full
of life and the joy of living? Why
hud it struck tlown so rure and
beautiful a creature and loft him to
drag on an existence of anguish and
futile remorse?

What is the man doing behind the

He is selling meat. Let us watch

What Is the lady going up to the
counter for?
To buy meat from the greasy mau
with the white apron.
What does she usk for?
A five pound roast of porterhouse.
Whnt does he give her?
A seven pound roast.
Then does ho charge her only for
what she asked for?"
No, Indeed. He charges her for what
he chose to give her.
Didn't the lady kuow what she wanted?
Evidently the man didn't think so.
Can't he tell the weight of a piece of
meat when he picks lt up?
Certainly he can. Otherwise lie would
never be able to know thnt he ls always selling you a piece of meat several pounds bigger tban you wanted.
Why does the mau do this?
It is impossible to associate constantly with greasy things and not become pretty smooth yourself. Now run

FISHING LINES.
Tha Very Finest Are Those Formed
From Silkworm Gut.
Silkworm gut forms tho best liue for
fishing purposes, partly on account of
Its great tenacity and partly because it
Is so transparent. Every year a sufficient number of Spanish silkworm
grubs are selected for this purpose. Aft
er they havo eateu enough mulberry
leaves and before they begin to spin
they are thrown Into vinegar for several hours. Each insect is killed, and
the substance which the grub lu the
natural course would have spun Into n
cocoon is forcibly drawn from the dead
worm into a much thicker and shorter
silken thread.
The threads are then plnced ln pure
water 'or about four hours and after
ward dipped for ten minutes In a so
lution of soft soap. The fine outer
skin is thus looseued so that the workman cau remove it witb his hands.
The threads must be dried ln a shady

Threatened With Flood.
Crookston, Minn.—The Red River
valley is threatened with a repetition
of the 1S9G Hood. The drainage convention meets here lu Jauuary and
will have an object lesson of the
country's needs. Three hundred miles
of tbe flat country Is banked with
snow that, wheu thawing, will swell
the numerous streams and inundate
large sections. The farmers aud business men are greatly concerned.
They Are Not Violent in Action.—
Somo persons when they wish to
cleanse the stomach resort to Epsom
and other purgative salts. These are
speedy in their action, but serve no
permanent good. Their use produces
incipient chills, and if persisted iu
they injure the stomach. Nor do
they act upon the intestines In a beneficial wny. Parmelee's Vegetable
Pills answer all purposes in this respect, and have no superior.
It is expected that the new winter
time card of the Canadian Pacific
Railway will be put in force on January 1 next.
A uumber of the Canadian Pacific
hotels lu tho west will be largely increased in size in the immediate future, according to present expectations. The season of 1905 was exceedingly satisfactory to the company, all
the hostelries of the corporation receiving a very liberal patronage. The
chalet at Lake Louise, which has
been visited by so large a number of
distinguished people during the past
few years, will be largely Increased
in size. The Banff hotel will also require enlargement, and plans to this
end are now under consideration. An
army of men are at work on the
hotel building of the company, and
it is expected that the entire structure will be ready for use in the early
summer.

Great Medicine.—Tonti, ono of the
pioneers of French Canada, lost a
hand and woro an Iron hook as a substitute. He was ln the habit of boxing the ears of refractory Indians
with this Iron hand, and they have
remarked that it was " great medicine." Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil Is
great medicine; it takes hold of pain
with an iron hand and knocks it out
of the system.
The Canadian Bank of Commerce
has added three branches In the west,
making a total of 130 branches, of
which 12G are in Canada.

RHEUMATIC      SUFFERERS
Will Find a Certain Cure in the Use
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Rheumatism is a dlsen.'e of the
blood. Every doctor now admits
this to be the fact. Doctors used to
think that rheumatism was brought
on by colds in the joints and muscles.
Now they know that cold never
started the disease—cold uuly sets
the pains going. Rheumat.sm can
only be cured by curing the bad
biood which causes it. Br. Williams'
Pink Pills always cures rheumatism,
because they actually make new
rich red blood, which drives out
the poisonous acids, loosens the stiffened, aching joints and muscles, and
restores the rheumatic sufferer tc
health and happiness. Dr. William's
Pink Pills have cured inousands and
thousands of rheumatic sufferers,
some of them when they were almost
hopeless cripples. Mr. T. H. Smith,
Caledonia, Ont., says:—"For a number of years I was badly troubled with
rheumatism, and was so crippled I
could scarcely do auy work. I tried
quite a number of medicines, but
they did not help me. Then I - saw
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills advertised as
a cure for this trouble, and got a
supply. After I had taken a few
boxes I saw they were helping me,
and I continued taking the pills
throughout the winter, and am now
completely cured. I have since worked out of doors in cold weather
without a coat, and did not feel even
a twinge of the trouble."
If you are suffering from any disease due to bad blood or disordered
nerves, Dr. Williams Pink Pills will
cure you, because they make now
rich blood, which goes right to the
toot of the disease an! drives it
frum the system. That ls why Dr.
Williams* Pink Pills cure such troubles as anaemia, indigestion, palpitation of the heart, neuralgia, headaches and backaches, kidney and
liver troubles, St. Vitus Dance, paralysis, and the special secret ailments of girlhood and womanhood.
But only the genuine pills can do
this, and these always have the full
name "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People," on the wrapper
around each box. Sold by Medicine
dealers everywhere, or sent by mall
at 60 cents a box or six boxes for
J2.B0, by writing the Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockvllle, Ont.
Shetland the Perfect Pet.
The cry of the children Is for a
perfect pet. What the rattle aud the
doll are to the earliest years of us,
that the Shetland pouy is fated to
become for older childhood, says
Country Life in America. This animal is the only pet that won't at
some time or other make reprisals on
tha hand that nags. The dog—every
dag—will bite when the child becomes too familiar. There are elements in a cat's nature that puzzle
and repulse the child, a something
that makes it walk "by its wild lone."
The goat is inadequate. We could
analyze a Noah's Ark of animals in
this way only to find that the one satisfying safe living pet is the Shetland
pony. If more thaii eight children
ride on his back, he will shake himself
like a wet Newfoundland and then
stand motionless, while they pick
themselves up and out from his four
hoofs. A large and more highly nerved grade of horse would trample the
children that were tripping him.

TEETHING TROUBLE.
Teething is generally accompanied
by nervousniOBS, irritability and
stomach disorders, which may lead
to serious consequences if not
promptly treated. Baby's Own Tablets is the best medicine in the world
for teething children. They allay the
Inflammation in the tender swollen
gums, correct the disordered stomach, and help the teeth through painlessly. Mrs. T. Nutt, Raymond, Ont.,
says: "My baby suffered terribly
while teething, but as soon as I bi-
gan giving him Baby's Own Tablets
he Improved In every way and is
now a bright, healthy child." The
Tablets also cure colic, constipation,
diarrhoea, indigestion, simple fevers
and destroy worms. They are guaranteed to contain not one particle of
opiate or harmful drugs, and may be
given with equally good results to
tho new-born baby or the well-grown
child. Sold by all druggists or sent
by mall at 25 cents a box by writing

Dolly Vardon's Sister Dead.
Toronto.—One of the largest women in Canada, Fanny Jefferson, died
last week of heart failure. Deceased,
who was 75 years of age, was colored and deaf and dumb. She weighed
over 500 pounds and it took six men
to put the body in the coffin, which
had to be made specially for her. She
was born in Canada, and had lived
in Toronto for over fifty years. Mrs.
Letltla Campbell, better known as
Dolly Varden, who travelled for many
years with Barnum's circus, on account, of her Immense size, ls a sister. She lives In St. Patrick's square,
and weighs 612 pounds.
Remarkable Invention by a Portuguese
Which Failed to Work.
In The London Evening Post, dated
Dec. 20 and 22, 1709, is an interesting
description of a flying ship then lately
Invented by a Portuguese priest. Unfortunately for the glory of Portugal it
did not fly, as was expected, 200 miles
in twenty-four hours or at all. In order that the deeply scientific among
our readers may understand the cause
of its failure we quote a few extracts
from Its specifications. The ship was
fitted, ln the flrst place, with "sails
wherewith the air ls to be divided." It
had also two pairs of bellows, "which
must be blown when there is no wind."
At opposite ends of the hull were "the
globes of heaven and earth, containing in them the attractive virtues."
These served as covers to "two loadstones placed in them upon pedestals to
draw the ship after them."
We have not yet exhausted the list
of motive powers carried by this remarkable Invention. Over the whole
was " a cover made of iron wire ln
form of a net, on which are fastened
a good number of large amber beads,
whleh by a secret operation will help
to keep the ship afloat, and by the sun's
heat (certain mats) that line the ship
will be drawn toward the amber beads."
It Is strange that a flying ship tilted
with so many alternative appliances
should have failed to fly at all. Possibly the amber beads tried to fly one
way, the globes another, the wind and
the bellows worked ln yet other directions, and thus stable equilibrium resulted.—London News.

Irving's Generosity.
The fate Sir Henry Irving retained
faithful old members ot his company
long after their services might have
been dispensed with if only business
considerations prevailed. One of the
most touching cases of this character
was that of Daddy Howe, who died in
Cincinnati some years ago while the
company was touring here. At one of
the most memorable dinners given to
Irving by the members of the profession Daddy Howe arose and, with
tears streaming down his face, told
how his proposal to retire had been received. At this time he was eighty
years old. When Howe learned that
the company was to como to America
he realized that the expense would be
very great and that the minor roles he
played could be easily filled over hem
at a much less cost. As a result ot
these gloomy reflections he wrote Mr.
Irving that he appreciated the situation and would either retire or accept
a reduced salary. Not receiving an an.
swer, he brought the matter up at a
personal   interview.
"Dear me! Ah, yes! Well, Til let
you know presently," was Mr. Irving's
evasive reply.
Daddy Howe thought from this that
he was undoubtedly doomed to retirement. With trembling fingers he opened a note that came from Mr. Irving
the next  day and read:
"Of course I expect you to go, and I
hope that the increase in your salary
will Indicate my appreciation and good
wishes."
Danton and the Clock.
The clock in the anteroom of the
ministry of justice having stopped, a
watchmaker took it to pieces and was
surprised to find engraved on one of
the wheels this inscription: "J. Jean
Blanchet, this 22nd Aug., 1792, saw
the Sieur Danton profane the emblem
of divine kingship by breaking a fleur-
de-lis, which so rightly adorned the
hand of this clock." The Inscription
had been hitherto undiscovered. Danton at the time mentioned was minister of justice, and It Is known that tho
clock stood for more than a century in
the minister's private room. Presumably he was irritated by watching tho
fleur-de-lis, which finished off the minute hand, as in many clocks of tho
eighteenth century, slowly mark fleeting time as he sat at his desk and on
the day In question suddenly started
up in a temper and broke the emblem
off. The hand still shows a mark
where it was mended and the fleur-de-
lis readjusted. The Jean Blanchet who
in his respect for dethroned royalty
recorded his indignation at Danton.'s
act Is unknown, but he may be supposed to have been the watchmaker
who mended tho broken hand.—London Telegraph.
There ls a need ln every home of a I

constipation.
A medicine that by cleansing the I
filtering and excretory organs will remove all poisonous waste matter, and ,
by so doing prevent fevers, colds and
such deadly diseases as dropsy, diabetes and Bright's disease.
No medicine satisfies the need so
well as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver ■
Pills. I
This ls no Idle boast, but an absolute fact that ls backed up by ths testimony of a hundred thousand homes.
The reputation of Dr. A. W. Chase ]

anion which first made this great me-
dlolno popular.
Now lt stands on Its record of;
cures—a record which has seldom, If;

As a treatment for baekaohes, headaches, Indigestion, aching limbs, liver derangements, kidney disorders
and constipation, Dr. Chase's Kldney-
Llver Pills are prompt, thorough and
effective.
Once their merit ls tested they are
kept ln tha house and relied on ln
cases of emergenoy. By keeping the
liver active and the bowels regular
they positively prevent serious disease.

C  P. R.  Engineer's  Experience
with Dodd's Kidney Pills.
They    Brought    Back    His    Strength
When He Could Neither
Rest Nor Sleep.
Winnipeg, Man., Dec. 4.—(Special).
—Mr. Ben Rafferty, the well-known
C. P. R. engineer, whose home is at
175 Maple Street, Is one Winnipeg
man who swears by Dodd's Kidney
Pills.
" Long hours on the engine and the
mental strain broke down my constitution," Mr. Rafferty says. " My back
gave out entirely. Terrible, sharp,
cutting pains followed one another,
llll 1 felt I was being sliced away
piecemeal. I would come in tired to
death from a run. My sole desire
would be to get rest and sleep, and
they were the very things I could not
get.   Finally I had to lay off work.
"Then I started to take Dodd's
Kidney Pills, and the flrst night after
using them I slept soundly, ln three
days I threw away the belt I have
worn for years. Dodd's Kidney Pills
cured me."

In consequence of the floating
mines in the waters traversed by
steamers bound for New Chwang,
freight and insurance rates have been
raised and vessels have been delayed
by anchoring at night. With every
precaution several steamers have
been blown "p or damaged, says Consular Reports, New Chwang.
Many have been destroyed since
steamers have been provided by the
Chinese Government with Hotchklss
one-pounder guns for that purpose.
On a recent voyage of the steamer
Kwang Se, a floating mine was sighted near North Head. Tho Chinese
gunner shot five times before hitting
the mine, only 150 yards distant. On
hitting it a deafening explosion followed. A great mass of water, streaked with flames, mostly blue in color,
was thrown 150 feet into the air.
Pieces of the mine came down upon
the deck of the Kwang Se, severely
injuring a Chinaman. A piece of the
steel frame of the mine, still hot, fell
beside one of the women passengers.
An End to Bilious Headache.—Biliousness, which Is caused by excessive
bile in the stomach, has a marked
effect upon the nerves, and often
manifests itself by severe headache,
This is the most distressing headache
one can have. There are headaches
from cold, from fever, and from other
causes, but the most excruciating of
all ls the bilious headache. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills will cure it—
I cure it almost Immediately. It will
disappear as soon as the pills operate
There is nothing surer In the treatment of bilious headache.
Steering  Ship from the Shore.
Berlin.—The navy department has
followed with intense interest the experiments In driving and steering
ships by electric power from the
shore whicll hnve recently been made
at Bilboa, and negotiations have been
opened with the Inventor, a Spanish
engineer, to sell his invention to the
German government for an enormous
sum.
Tho experiments at Bilboa, which
wero conducted under the auspices of
the Spanish navy department and the
inventor, Senor Torres Quevedo,
proved that from a transmitting station on tho shore he was able to steer
a torpedo boat with the same accuracy as if he were standing at the
helm, andalarge amount has been
placed at his disposal by the Spanish
government to enable him to develop
his Invention.
The Grate Fire.
An English writer makes an Interesting suggestion regarding grate
fires. After discussing "gas logs," he
says: "1 plump for the old fashioned
coal fire, but In a new fashioned grato.
I am sure that, with all its difficulties
as to keeping it In and with all the
stoking it demands, it is still the best.
But I learned one thing from the as-
bestus gas fire and have since adopted
it. I have some gas jets under my
grates and light my fire by and
through them. The up draft at first
gives you the Idea that the fire is not
burning up, but directly you turn out
your jets up flames your lire, full of
healthy incandescence. And in this
way wood a little damp "matters not,
and a fire that goes low is still and
soon revivable."

A bookseller purchased a lot of
books out In oue of the new towns of

lots of Charles Dickens' works ln his

price on them, so he put all of them ln

"Charles Dickens Works All Week

A Kansas farmer who had drifted

Ghosts Frighten Tramps.
The casual ward at Clones Workhouse, Ireland, Is at present absolutely

avoided for months. Having recently
recovered from their frlgnt tramps
were again over-crowding the workhouse, but the ghost has Just returned
and the tramps are making off elsewhere. The neighboring unions, it Ib

He Gets A.T.iy With Base When lou
Think Yoa Have Him.
"Speaking of quick and resourceful
animals, the mole leads easily so far as
my experience goes," said a man from
tho country, "and I dare say tliere are
many men who have made observations that will confirm my contention.
As you probably know, the mole plows
In the surface of the earth, generally
making a small ridge anywhere from
two to three Inches high. He moves
with remarkable rapidity even when
the ground In which he Is burrowing ls
hard. Whon operating In soft ground
he moves along at a surprising gait.
But this Is not the point I wanted to
make. I was thinking of the remarkably good hearing of the mole and the
ease with which he can get away Just
at the moment when you think you
have him cornered. Of course now and
then you can drive a spike through the
mole before he Is aware of lt. If you
do you will have to walk as light as a
cat and will bave to act as quickly as
the same animal when the time comes
to act. In nine cases out of ten the
mole will hear the flrst footfall. At
once he will quit plowing. He is gone.
Search as you may, you cannot find
him. I have seen men dig for fifty
yards, following the ridge and Its offshoots, without finding any other trace
of the mole than tlie ridge. The mole's
bearing Is peculiarly keen, and I suppose this Is so because he cannot see.
But even more wonderful from my
standpoint Is tbe ease and quickness
with which he gets away. How does he
manage It? Where does he go? You
know, the element of superstition ln
my makeup Is slim, and I don't believe
In ghosts, but somehow I have always
inclined just a bit to the ghost theory
when thinking of the mysterious antics
of these blind burrowers. The molo Is
more like a ghost In his conduct than
nnythlng I have ever known, though,
of course, the mole Is a real and not an
Imaginary and mythical thing."
A MEMORY OF LEE.
He   Had   Mnch   Dignity   of   Bearing
and  Beuntr of Face.
Soon after the Confederates began to
enter the town (Eliznbethtowu) I met a
friend of mine, the son o* Dr. Doyle,
who told me that his father had just
been sent for to see Lee and tha1: I
might go, too, If I ran as fast as my
small legs could carry me, and we
found the doctor just starting. Dr.
Doyle was a man who had been ln
communication with the enemy from
the beginning of tlie war, but had so
far managed to escape the fate of
many Innocent men. Two of his sons
had been arrested a short time before
and were lying ln jail when their
friends arrived and set them free.
The doctor was ln his old gig and,
being an Immense man, left no room
for any one else In It, so we two boys
sat on the springs behind. It was on
the Wllliamsport pike, about hulf a
mile from the town, that we mot General Lee. He had dismounted and was
standing by bis horse, a small sorrel
mare, which, I was told, It was his custom to ride on tho march. His staff
was brilliant ln gold lace, but he was
very simply dressed. No ono could
have seen that man without being
greatly Impressed with the dignity of
his bearing and the beauty of bis face.
His balr at this time was almost entirely white, and those who had seen
him the year before said he had aged
greatly In the Bhort space of time which
had elapsed since the battle of Antle-
tam. I could not help thinking of
Washington as I looked at that calm,
sad face. It bas been said since by
those who were near him that he bad
no expectation of conquering the north
and that at the most he only hoped to
win a great battle on northern soil In
order to affect public opinion ln Europe
and lead to the recognition of the
Southorn Confederacy. However that
may be, there was nothing about his
bearing which looked like a great hope.

received all kinds of advice from parishioners, and the greatest amount
came from those who had contributed
the least toward the erection of the
church. So at the regular services on
the following Sunday he said:
"I have been receiving lots of advice
during the last few weeks. I have
been told by certain members of tbe
congregation that It will not do to
have too many fingers ln the pie. I
can assure you that I will attend to
that part of lt   There will be no pie."
The War ot It.
"Who Is that sprightly girl over
there?"
"That's Miss Jones, who took part In
the amateur theatricals last night"
"And who are those nineteen tired
looking women near her?"
"Those aro her mother, sisters, aunts
and cousins who helped her to get
ready I"
Impatient.

after you cross the river? The Bud-
Yes. But, euntle, I'm not averse to •

What Flour Granulation
Means in Bread-Making
Flour is composed of myriacb of
tiny granules.
To make good bread these granules
must be uniform in size.
In poorly milled flour some granules
are large, some small.
The small ones absorb yeast, "rise"
and "ripen" before the large ones—
the result is bread of coarse, poor
texture.
The large granules are not developed
into "sponge," they bake into heavy
hard particles, spoil the texture of the
bread and make it harder to digest
ROYAL HOUSEHOLD FLOUR
is perfectly milled—all the flour granules are uniform in size—the sponge
rises uniformly—the bread is even in
texture — perfect in flavor — good-
looking, appetising bread — easily
digested.

A largely attended meeting of
those interested in the develdpement
of the West end of the Municipality
of South Vancouver, was held iu Mr.
Higgins1 new building, at Eburne,
tin Saturday evening, February jrd.
Captain Stewart was elected Chairman, and Mr. R. McBride, Secretary
of the meeting.
At the request of the promoters of
the meeting, Reeve Foreman and all
the members of the Council attended
to listen to the several arguments,
antl took an intelligent part in discussing several questions brought up.
The first item on the programme
was the question of the Government
Reserve at Point Gray. On motion
the Chairman was asked to appoint
a committee of three to co-operate
with the Municipal Council, to get
the Provincial Government to open
up roads through the said reserve,
and charge flic cost of the said roads
against the property, and sail the
same to bonaiidc settlers 011 the improvement plan—on the same principle as the Central Park small holdings— but in no case to give a title
to the property until the necessary
improvements are made.
TlicCommittee and Council were
also requested to get sufficient
grounds for a large park, in the most
.-.iiii.ii,.. 1 localrioln;, reserved ifor the
public, before the said reserve is cut
up.
It was reported to tiie meeting that
ce'ain parties were making an effort
lo get a licence for an hotel nr sal-
loon, within tthe municipal limits.
This brought forth many vigorous
speeches against any such proposition.
It was held that South Vancouver
was favorably situated as residential property, and that residents and
rate-payers could not afford to allow
such a menace to the welfare of society as a saloon or hotel, where in
tbj.tc_.ting liquor is sold, be located
in any part of the Municipality. The
following resolution was carried unanimously; "That this meeting very
strongly oppose the granting of a
saloon or hotel licence, within the
bounds of South Vancouver Municipality."
fhe next qtieston was that of roads
A motion was carried a.i'king the
Chairman to appoint a committee to
co-operate with the Council in getting the roads under Dy-law No. 2,
opened up, also the work on roads
in general,
There was a committee appointed
tn take up the question of taxation.
The next important question was
that "f telephones. It was suggested
that South Vancouver, Burnaby and
Richmond make arrangements to organize a local municipal telephone
system,
It was charged that the rates at
present were extravagant and prohibitory: that the average settler could
not afford to have a telephone in llis
home; that under the new system the
rates would be only nominal, if the
three municipalities would take hold
of it. It was also stated that the citizens of the south part of Lulu Island had organized into a local company.
■ ii ntotion the Chairman was a.--k-
ed to appoint a committee to take the
question up and push it to a succc:   -

The question of stumping powder
for settlers was taken up, but as it
was getting iate and many of those
present had to catch the last car, there
was not much time for discussion
However, a committee was appointed
to take the matter up, in conjunction
with the Municipal Council; but with
out sending a large delegation down
to Victoria, representing the Municipalities most interested, it is hoped
to get the matter settled satisfactorily
The question of cheaper transportation over the Vancouver and Stev
eston tramline was then considered.
It was shown that if the rates were
reduced to a reasonable basis, many
scalers would build on their property in the vicinity of the tramline,
and go iu every morning to their
work or business, and especially will
this be the case -when the local or
municipal telephone is established.
A committee was appointed to act
in conjunction with the Council and
ail those interested in cheap transportation, to ask the Tram Company
for a reduction of rates, in the same
ratio as is charged to settlers over
oilier parts of the Company's lines in
Rritisil Columbia, And to ask tliem
to run the Stevcston cars to the C. P.
R. Station, at tiie font 01 Granville
Street.
scrs Wells and Foreman were
appointed a committee to wait on Mr.
Higgins and to thank liim for the use
of hia hall.
A resolution was passed instructing
the Secretary to furnish the papers,
■villi tin- minutes of this meeting, and
to ask them t" publish tiie same.
This brought a very successful
meeting to a close, and the responsibility now rests with the committees
to see lhat the wishes of the mectittg-'
■ re carried out as far as posiblc. ■-
It is predicted that the coming
season will experience the biggest separate skirt business in the hitory
of manufacture,
The most popular colors in millinery are brown, prune, green, and
blue with mixtures of gray and brown
dull green and black.
The houses that make a specialty
of sacqucs and house dresses arc
shrowing the elbow and three-quarter
sleeve almost exclusively.
The demand for veilings in fancy
mesh, nets and chiffon will continue
good. There is a good call for plain
and   chenilled  spots.
The string ties arc going to be good
this season. They are made with
either the pointed or square ends.
The colors arc rather loud.
Tailor-made leather belts, the kind
that have several rows of stitching
throughout their entire length, are
being heavily featured.

We needed proof of the- enthusiastic revival of gold ornaments of every kind for use and personal ornament, our Christmas gifts bear testimony incontrovertible. Gold chains
now glitter where turquoise and topaz lately liisJd .sway. Bracelet::,
brooches and lorgnettes, beautifully
wrought in gold as well as chain-
purses and bags, hatpins, buckles and
clasps are the everyday decorations
of well-dressed women: When it
comes to small articles, which in silver wc have been long supplied with
it need only be said, they are constantly being sent to be gilded, for
that is the present fad, from which
there is no escape. Such trifles as
pen-knives, kcy-ringtf, - fruit-knives,.
must also reflect this golden brilliancy
or else we shall be quite out of fashion's gearing. The short hair
brooch in gold work of a fine order
begins to be quite evident in lieu of
the jewelled and shell pins.

as well that your smart dresser is

bands of extremely chic tailor costumes. It is quite the craze for the

Pink and blue hydrangea with touches
of pink, or mauve, is another favorite

flowers mounted upon long storks,
and grouped in vase or jar, is a most
decorative way of-lighting up a dark

and women are wrong when thoy believe
their happiness is tho most important

lifo burning, and when that is doue, 11

Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made the
. 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, llie "better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. W he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he wouid not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.

Not   very  young,  nor   very   old,   but

Where life lias dowered her of his

Those   .vho   the   fortune   of   her   day.:

Virile and brave, she gives no mca-
t;:e  crusl
To live within  the circle of her trust,
Fill    .sympathy       as   cl■>. c   as   a
And,  from a heart  that  longs for
happiness,
The  I-imlly   words   that  hear   no  sub

Courage, fastbottnd with loyally juel

And  ! nowlcdgc, bred of lotielinci 3

In such sweet wise, lu-r friends from
