AUTHOR OF k    .
"I have hated black eyes for a
year.   He had black eyes.
"I forgot Cora, or, rather, I did
not let any remembrance ot her hinder me. She was a very shadowy person to me in those days. 1 had not
seen her since we wore both children,
and as for*.her letters—they were almost a bore to mo: she lived such a
different life fn. i mine and wrote of
so many things 1 had no interest in.
On my knees I ask her pin-dim now,
I never understood her. I never understood myself. I was light as
thistle-down' and blown by" every
breeze. There camo a gust ono day
which blew me into the mouth of
hell. I am hovering there yet and
am sinking, .Francis, sinking—Save'
me!   I Iovo you—I—I—
"It was all planned by him—I
havo no head for such things. Sadio
helped him—Sadie was my friend-
but Sadie had not much to say
about it, for ho seemed to know just
how to arrange it all so that no one
at tho seminary should know or even
suspect what had occurred till wo
got feady to tell them. He did not
even tako his brother into his confidence, for Wallace kept store and
gossiped very much with his customers. Besides, he was very busy jnst
then selling out, lor he was going
to the Klondike with. William, and
ho had too much on his mind to be
bothered, or so William 6aid. All
this I must tell you or you will nover understand the temptation which
assailed me when, having returned to
Washington, I awoke to my own
position and the kind o( mon whom
I could now hope to meet. .1 was
the wifp—oh, tho folly of it—but this
was known to so few, and those were
so far removed, and one even—my
friend Sadie—being dead—Why not
ignore the miserable secret ceremony
and cheat mysolf into believing myself free, and enjoy this world of
pleasure and fashion as Cora was enjoying it and—trust. Trust what?
■Why the Klondike! That swallower-
up of men. Why shouldn't it swallow ono more—Oh, I know that It
sounds hateful. But I was desperate; I had seen you.
"I had one letter from him after
ho reached Alaska, but that was beforo I left Owosso. I never got. another. And I never wrote to him.
He told me not to do so until he
could send mo word how and whero
to write; but when these directions
camo my heart bad changed and my
only wish was to forgot his existence.
And I did forget it—almost. I rods
and danced with you and went hither and yon, lavishing money and
timo and heart on the frivolities
which cams in my way, calling myself Veronica and striving by these
means to crush out every remember-
ance of tho days when I was known
as Antoinette and Antoinette only.
For ths Klondike was far and its
weather bitter, and men were dying
there every day, and no letters came
(t used to thank God lor this), and
I need not think—not yot—whither
I was tending. One thing only
mado me recall my real position.
That was when your eyes turned on
mine—ybur trus eyes, so bright with
confidence and pride. I wanted to
meet- thenS full, and when I could
not, I suddenly knew why, and suffered.
"Do you remember the night when
we stood' together on thq balcony at
the Ocean View Houso and you laid
your hand on my arm and wondered
why I persisted in looking at the
moon instoad of into your expectant
face? It was because the music then
being played within recalled another
night and the pressure of another
hand on my arm—a hand whose
touch I hoped nover to feel again,
but which at that moment was so
much mofe palpable than yours that
I came near screaming aloud and tolling you in ono rush of maddened
emotion my whole abeminablo secret.
"I did not accept your attentions
nor agree to marry you', without a
struggle. You know that. You can
tell, as no ono else can, how I held
back and asked for time and still for
time, thus grieving you and tearing
my own breast till a day camo—you
remember the day when you found
ma laughing like a mad woman in a
circle of astonished friends? You
drew me aside anil said words which
I hardly waited for you to finish, for
at last I was free to love you, free
to love and freo to say so. The
morning paper had brought news. A
telegraphic despatch from Seattlo
told how a man had struggled into
Nome, frozen, bleeding and without
accoutrements or companion. It
was with difficulty he had kept his
feet and turned In at tho first ten.
he came to. Indeed, ho had only
time to speak his name before he fell
dead. This namo was what mado
this despatch important to me, lt
was William Pfeiffer. For mo there
was but one William Pfeiffer in tho
Klondike—my husband—and he was
doadl That was why you found , me
laughing. But not in mirth. 1 am
not so bad as that; but because I
could breathe again without feeling
a clutch about my throat. I did not
know till then how nearly I had
been stifled.
"We wero not long in marrying
after that. I was terrified at delay,
not because I fear'.d ■ any contradiction of tho report which had given
this glorious release, but because I
dreaded lost sonic hint of my curly
folly should reach you and dim tbo
prido with which you regarded me.
1 wanted to feel myself yours so
closely and so dearly that you would
not mind if any ono told you that 1
had onco cared, or thought I hud
cared, for another. The week of our
marriage came; I was mad with
gaioJ,y and ecstatic with hope. Nothing had occurred to mar my pros*
peels. No letter from Denver—ho
memonto from the Klondike, no
Word oven from Wallace, who had
gone north with his brother. Soon I
should lie called wifo again, but by
lipe I loved, and |o whose lunguugc
my heart thrilled. The past, always vague, would soon bo no more
than a forgotten dream—an episode
quite closed. 1 could afford from
this moment on to view life, llko
other girls und rejoico in'iny youth
and tho love which every duy was
becoming moro and moro to nie.
"But Cod had His eyo upon mo,
and '9 the    midst -if mv iiat.r,imiss
..na tne hurry' of our final preparations His bolt fell. It struck me
whilo I was at the—don't laugh;
rather shudder—at the dressmaker's
shop in Fourteenth street. I was
leaning over a table, chattering liko
a magpio ovor tho way I wanted a
gown trimmed, when my eye fell on
a scrap of newspaper in which something had conic rolled to niadaiue,
It was torn at the edge, hut on the
bit lying under my eyes I saw my
husband's name, William Pfeiffer,
and that tho Paper wus a Denver
one. There was but one William
Pfeiffer in Denver—and ho was my
husband. And I read—feeling nothing. Then I road again, and tho
world, my world, wont from under
my feet; for the man who had fallen
dead in the camp at Nome was Wallace William's brother, and not
William himself. William had been
left behind on the road by his more
energetic brother, who had pushed
on for succor through tho worst
storm and under tho worst conditions
possible cvon in that Cod-forsaken
region. With tho lost ono in mind,
tho one word that Wallace uttered in
sight ot rescue, was William, A
hopo was expressed of finding tho
latter altvo and a party had started
out—Did I read more? 1 do not
think so. Perhaps thero was no
more to read; here was whero tho
paper was torn across. But it was
no matter. I had seen enough. It
was Wallace who' had fallen dead,
and while William might have perished also, aud doubtless had, I had
no certainty of it. And my wedding
day was sot for Thursday.
"Why didn't I tell Cora; why
didn't I tell you? Prido held my
tongue; besides, I had had time to
think beforo I saw either of you,
and to reason a bit and to feel sure
that if Wallace had been spent
enough to fall dead on reaching tho
camp, William could never have survived on the open road. For Wal-
laco was tho stronger of tho two and
the most hardy every way. Freo I
certainly was. Some later paper
would assure mo of this. I would
hunt them up and see—but I never
did. I do not think I dared. I was
afraid I should sec some account of
his rescue. I was afraid of being
made certain of what was now but
a possibility, and so I did nothing.
But for three nights I did not
"Tho caprics which had led me to
choose the old Moore houso to     ba
married in led me    to  plan dressing
thero  on  my  wedding  morning.     It
was    early when    wo    started,  Cora
and I, for Waverley Avenue, but not
too early for the approaches to   that
dreadful houso to be crowded    with
people, eager to seo tho daring bride.
Why I should have    shrunk so from
that crowd I can not say.   I trembled at sight of their faces nnd at tho
sound ' of their    voices,    and if by
chance  a    head  was thrust  forward
farther than tho rest 1 cowered back
instinctively    and    nearly  screamed.
Did I dread to recognizo a too familiar    face?   Tho    paper I    had seen
bore a date six months back.   A man
could arrive    here  from  Alaska     in
that    time.   Or was    my conscience
aroused   at  lust  and  clamoring     to
bo heard whon  it  was  too late?   On
the corner of N. Street the carriuge
suddenly stopped.   A  man had crossed in    front of   it.     I caught    ono
glimpse  of this    man  and  Instantly
the  terrors  of  a lifetime  were   concentrated   into  ono  instant  of agonizing  fear.   It   was  William  Pfcilter.
I knew the look; 1 knew the gait.  He
was gone in a moment and the carriage rolled     on.   But  I know     my
doom as  well  that minute as I did
an hour     later.      My husband    was
alivo and  he was here.   He had   escaped tho perils of the Klondike and
wandered east to reclaim his recreant
wife.   There hnd been timu for   him
to do this since tho rescue party left
homo in search of him; time for him
to  recover,  timo    for him  to  reach
home, timo for him to reach the east.
He had heard of my wedding; it was
in all tho papers,  and I should   find
him at the house when 1 got' there,
and    you    would     know    and  Cora
would know, and tho wedding would
stop and   my name  be  made a    byword tho world over.   Inslead of the
joy awuiting mo a moment,  since,  I
should have    to go away  with   hlin
into    somo    wilderness     or     distant
place of exile where my maiden namo
would   nover bo   heard,  and  all  tho
memories of this year of stolen   delights   be   offaced.    Oh,   it  was    horrible!    And  all   in  a  minute!      And
Cora sat thoro, pale, calm and beautiful      as        an      angel,        beaming
on    me    with    tinder    eyes    whose
expression      1        huvo       never      understood!  Hell  in my heart—and sho,
ln happy  Ignorance of this, brooding
over my Joy and smiling to    herself
while Iho soft teurs rose!
"You woro waiting ut the curb
when I arrived, and 1 remember how
my heart stood still when vou laid
your hand on the carriage door and
confronted me with that lu-.lii on
your fuce I hud never seen disturbed
sinco we llrst pledged ourselves to
marry. Would ho seo lt, too, und
como forward from tho secret place
where he held himself hidden? Wus I
destined to behold a struggle in tho
streets, an unseemly contest of words'
in sight of tho door I had expected
to enter so joyously? In teiror of
such nn event, 1 seized the hand
which seemed iny ono refuge in this
hour of mortal trouble, und hastened into tho house which, for all its
doleful history, had never received
within ils doors a heart moru burdened or rebellious. As this thought
rushed over mc, I enme near crying
out, 'The house of doom! The houso
of doom!' I hud thought to bravo
Its terrors and Its crimes and it has
avenged itself. But instead ot thut,
1 pressed your hand with mino and
smiled. O Ood! if you could havo
seen what lay beneath that smile!
For, with iny entrance beneath those
fatal doors a thought had come. I
.remembered my heritage. I remembered how I had boon told by my
father whon I was a very little girl—
1 presume when ho first felt the hand
death upon liim—that if over I was
in great troublo—vory great trouble,
ho had said, whero no doliveranco
seemed possible—I was to open a little golden ball wlilcji be showed   mo
ono* igKo out wnat 1 srtouiu nna inside flint hold it iita close beforo a
picture .which had hung from time
immemorial in the southwest corner
of this old house. -Ho could not tell
mo what I should encounter there--
this I remember his saying—but
something that would assist inn,
something which had passed with
good effect from father down to child
for many generations. Only, if I
would be blessed in my undertakings.
I must not openthe golden ball nor
endeavor to find out its mystery unless my trouble threatened death or
some great disaster. Such a troublo
had indeed come to me, and—sturt-
ling coincidence—I was at this moment in tho very house whero this
picture hung, and—more startling
fact yet—the golden ball needed to
interpret its moaning was round my
neck—for with such jealousy was this
family trinket always guarded by its
ownei1. Why then not test their combined effect? I certainly needed help
from somo quarter. Never would William allow mo to bo married to another while ho lived. He would yet
appear and I should need this great
assistance (great enough to bo transmitted from father to son) as nono
of the Moores had needed It yet;
though what lt was I did not know
and did not even try to guess,
"Yet when I got to the room I did
not drag out tho filigree ball at once
nor even take more than one fearful
side-long look at the picture. In
drawing off my glove I had seon his
ring—the ring you had once asked
about. It was such a cheap affair;
tho only ono he could get in that
obscuro littlo town whero we wore
married. I lied when you asked me
if it was a family jewel; lied but did
not tako It off, perhaps bocauso it
clung so tightly, as if fn remcni-
branco of tho vows it symbolized.
But now the very sight of it gave mo
a fright. With his ring on my finger
I could not defy him and swear his
claim to be falso—the dream of a
■■man maddened by his experiences in
tho Klondike. It must come off.
Then, perhaps, I should feel myself a
free woman. But it would not come
off. I struggled with it and tugged
in vain; then I bethought me of using a nail file to sever it. This I
did, grinding and grinding at it till
tho ring finally broke, and I could
wrench it off and cast it away out
of sight, and, as I hoped, oufof my
memory also. I breathed easier
when rid of this token, yot choked
with terror whenever a step approached tho door. I was clad in niy
bridal dress, but not in my bridal
veil or ornaments, and naturally
Cora, and then my maid, came to
assist me. But I would not let them
in. I was set upon testing tho secret
of tho filigree ball and so preparing
myself for what my conscience told
me lav between mo and the ceremonv
arranged for high noon.
"I did not guess that tho studying
out of that picture would tako so
long. The contents of tho ball turned out to be a small magnifying-
giass, and the picture a mazo of
written words. I did not decipher
it all; I did not decipher the half. I
did not need to. A spirit of divination was given me in that awful
hour wliich enabled me to grasp its
full meaning from the few sentences
I did pick out. And that meaning
It was horrible, inconceivable. Mur
der was taught; but murder from a
distance, and by an act too simple
to awake revulsion. Were the wraiths
of my two ancestors who had played
with the spring hidden in the depths
of this old closet, drawn up in mock,
ery beside me during the hour when
I stood spellbound in the middle of
the floor, thinking of what I had
just read, and listening—listening for
something less loud than the sound
of carriages now beginning to roll
up in front or the stray notes of tho
band tuning up below?—less loud, but
meaning what? A step into the-
empty closet yawning so near—an effort with a drawer—a—a—. Do not
ask mo to recall it. I did not shudder when tho moment came and 1
stood thero. Then I was cold as
marble. But I shudder now in thinking of it till soul nnd body seem
separating, and the horror which envelopes mo gives me such a foretaste
of hell that I wonder I can contemplate tho deed which, if it releases me from this earthly anguish,
will only plungo me into a oosslblv
worse hereafter. Yot I shall surelv
tak* my lifo before you see mo
again, and in that old houso. If it
is despair I feel, then despair will
take me there. If it is repentance,
then repentance will suffice to drive
me to the one expiation possible to
me—to perish where I caused an innocent man to perish, and so relievo
you of a wife who was nover worthy
of you and whom It would bs your
duty to denounce if she let another
sun rise upon her  guilt.
"I did not stand there long bs-
tweon the wraiths of my murderous
ancestors. A message was shouted
through the door—the message for
which my ears had been strained In
dreadful anticipation for the last
two hours. A man named Pfeiffer
wanted to see mo before I went down
to be married. A man named Pfeifl-
"I looked closolv at tho boy who
delivered this message. He showed
no excitement, nor any feeling greater than impatience at being kept
waiting a minute or so at the door.
Then I glanced boyond him at the
people chatting in the hall. No alarm
there; nothing but a very natural
surprlso that the bride should keep
so big a crowd waiting. I felt that
this fixed the event. He who had
sent mo this quiet message was truo
to himself and to our old compact.
He had not published below what
would have set tho houso in an uproar in a moment. Ho had left his
secret to be breathed into my car
alono. I could recall the moment ho
passed me his word, and his firm
look as he said, with his hand lifted
to Heaven—'You have been good to
me and given me your precious self
whilo I was poor and a nobody. In
return. I swear to keep our marriage
a secret till great success shows mo
to be worthy of you or till vou with
your own lips express forgiveness of
my failure nnd grant mo leave to
speak. Nothing but death or your
permission shall ever unseal my lips.'
When I heard that he was dead I
feared lest he might have spoken,
but now that I had seen him alive, I
knew that in no other breast, save
his, my own and that of the unknown minister in an almost unknown town, dwelt any knowledge of
the fact which stood between me and
tho marriage wliich all tho peoplo
had como here to sec. My confidence
In his rectitudo determined mc. Without conscious emotion, without fear
even—the ending of uusponso had ended all that—I told the boy to seat
the gentleman In the library. Then—
"I am. haunted B«w, X SJA bmnted
always, Dy oho vision, norrime but
perslstont. It will not leave lno; it
rises between us now; It has stood
between us ever sinco I left that house
with the seal of your affection on mv
lips. Last night it terrified ine into
unconscious speech. I dreamed that
I saw again, and plainly, what 1
caught but a shadowv glimpse of in
that murderous hour; a man's form
seated at the end of the old settle,
with his head leaning back in silent
contemplation. His face was turned
the other way—I thanked God fo:-
that—no, I did not thank God; 1
nover thought of God in that moment of my blind feeling about for a
chink and a spring in the wall. I
thought only of your impatience, and
the people waiting, and the pleasure
of days to come when, free from this
intolerable bond, I could keep my
placo at your side and bear your
name unreproved and taste to the
full the awe and delight of a passion
"such as few women over feel, because
•few women wero ever loved by a man
like you. Had my thoughts been
elsewhere, my fingers might have for-
gotten to fumble nlong that wall,
and I had been simply wretched today—and innocent. Innocent 1 O,
where in God's universe can. I be
made innocent again and fit to look
in your face and to love—heartbreaking thought—even to love you
"To turn and turn a miserable
crank after those moments of frenzied action and silence—that was the
hard part—that was whut tried mv
nerve and first robbed me of calmness. But I dared not leave that
fearful thing dangling there; I had to
wind. The machinery squeaked, and
its noiso seemed to fill the houso, but
no one camo nor did the door below
open. Sometimes I have wished that
it had. I should not then have been
lured on and you would not have become involved in my ruin.
"I have heard many Say that I
looked radiant when I came down to
be married. The radiance was in
their thoughts. Or if my face did
shine, and if I moved as if treading
on air, it was because I had triumphed over all difficulties and could pass
down to tho altar without fear .of
that interrupting voice crying out:
'I forbid! She is mine! The wifo of
William Pfeiffer can not wod another!' No such words could be dreaded
now. The lips which might have
spoken thein were dumb. I forgot
that flcshless lips gibber loudest, and
that a llfothne, long or short, lay
before me, In which to hear them
mumble and squeak their denunciation
and threats. Oh, but I havo been
wretched! At ball and dinner and
dance those lips havo been ever at my
ear, but most when we have sat
alone together; most then; Oh, most
then! ^^^^^
"He is avenged; but you! Who will
avenge you, and where will you ever
find happiness?
"To blot myself from your memgrv
I would go down deeper into the vale
of suffering than ever I have gone
yet. But no, no! do'not quite . forget me. Remember me as you saw
me one, night—the night you took tho
flower out of my hair and kissed it,
Baying t]iat Washington hold many
beautiful women, but that nono of
them savo myself had ever hud the
power to move your inmost heartstrings. Ah, low was your voice and
eloquent your eyes that .hour, and I
forgot—for a moment I forgot—everything but this puro Iovo, and the
heart-beat it called up and tho hope
never to be realized—that I should
live to hear you repeat tho same
swoet words in our old age, in just
such a tone and wilh just such e
look. I was innouent at that moment, Innocent and good. I am willing that you Bhould remember me as
I was that night.
, "When I think of him ly'ng
and dead in tho grave I myself
for him, my heart is liko stone
when I think of you—
"I am afraid to die; but I
moro afraid of failing In courage,
shall havo the pistol tied to me; this
will moke it seem inevitable to use
it. Oh! that the next twenty-four
hours could be blotted out of time!
Such a horror can not be. I was
born for joy and gaiety; yet no dismal depth of misery and fear has
been spared mol But all on account
of myewn act. I do not accuse God;
I do not accuso man; I only accuse
myself, and my thoughtless grasping
after pleasure.
"I want Cora to read this as well
as you. Sho must know mo dead as
she never knew mo living. But I can
not tell her that I have left a confession behind me. She must come
upon it unexpectedly, just as I mean
vou to do. Only thus it can reach

A Talented -Woman who Has Earned
Fame us a Sculptor.
- Miss Helen Farnsworth Mears, the
sculptor of Frances Willard's statue
which the Btate of Illinois commissioned her to mako for Statuary hall at
the capital at Washington, was born
ln Oshkosh, Wis., and began to model
things out of putty that she found
about the house when but a mere child.
Before she was nine years old she had
modeled a head of Apollo, which was
exhibited at the county fair, and every-year after she modeled something
for exhibition, her designs representing allegorical figures, as Hope, Repentance and similar Ideas. Later, when
Miss Mears began attending tbe Normal college, she continued her modeling at home, with her father to make
suggestions and criticisms.
Although the statue of Miss Wlllard
Is  not the first work  of  importance
Miss Mears has executed, she is still a
youug woman. She submitted a design
in competition for tbe figure of a'woman for the Woman's building at the
Chicago exposition, coming ln third,
and when symbolical figures of Wisconsin were wanted for tbe Wisconsin
Btate building she competed success-
■fully for them. The Milwaukee Woman's club having offered a prize of
$500 for the best work of art by n Wisconsin woman that should be exhibited at the Chicago exposition she was
fortunate enough to win it with her
Wisconsin figure, which, after the fair,
was put ln marble and placed lu tbe
rotunda of the eapitol at Madison.
Up to this point tbe only professional
Instruction Miss Mears had received
was confined to about six weeks at the
Art Institute In Chicago, but she went
to New York, where she studied for a
year and a half under Augustus St.
Gaudens at the Art Students' league
before going abroad to spend a year ln
Paris ateliers, working under Puesch
In Julien's studio, lu Collin's class and
with Merson and Cbarpentler. During
the latter part of the time she worked
for St. Gaudens, helping lo model his
General Logan and other statues.
After nine or ten months In Italy
Miss Mears returned to New York and
set up for herself as a sculptor.—Detroit News-Tribune.
Window Shades.
In measuring for window shades It
must be remembered that the dealers
measure by the length of the roller and
not by tbe width of the shade itself, as
most women learn to their sorrow if
they take the measure for themselves.
The shade has to be cut narrower than
the fixtures on tbe ends of tbe roller to
allow lt to work; hence shades are too
narrow very often lf untrained persons
take the measures for themselves.
In the same way designers of their
own homes draw plans and give measures to a house builder, Imagining that
the measures will be exactly right to
allow the pieces of furniture to stand
In the spaces intended for them. They
intend tbe single line for inside measure and • make no estimate for the
walls, and the builder takes It for the
outside and lessens the size of the
room just that much. The writer once
visited in such a house, where it was a
constant source of trouble to Its owners, who had drawn the plan to accommodate rugs and furniture. The foundations were laid and walls up too far
to change before the matter was discovered-—Table Talk.
.Bar Company Voice.
"Who is that in the parlor, Nelller
asked the little sister.
"Nobody but mamma and Fred," replied Nellie.
"Ob, yes, there must be some one
else," rejoined the little girl, "for mamma has her company voice on!"
It was a little squib under the beading of "Fun" which a member of tbe
family read aloud from tbe paper. The
circle about the table who heard tt
smiled, and one ssld, "That's a good
Joke." But a more thoughtful member turned It over in her mind. She
was the mother, and she admitted to
herself that lt was more than a joke-
that in many Instances it was sober
truth, ft came home to ber heart with
great significance, for she acknowledged to herself that "tbe company voice"
was entirely too often put on wben In
the presence of those outside the home
circle. We wish to appear nt our best
before those whose good opinions we
desire to gain. But wltb those who
love us how often we speak ln Irritable,

Red   Arms.
The skin of the upper parts of the
ms ls often rough ami red and there-
re a source of annoyance to the owner. The arms should ba bathed every
night with hot water to which a little
ammonia has been added and then
well rubbed wltb a well soaped loofah.
Dry thoroughly by nibbing with a towel, the object being to set up a glow.
Rough, red arms ore generally caused
by poor circulation, and the rubbing
will help to remedy this. The arms
should never be allowed to become
chilled, so that long woolen sleeves
must be worn and all tightness avoided around tha anahole and wrist
Whan tha anas hava bean dried take
a little glycerin tod Urn tn Julct and
with tbe paiiii ot tbe band rub It ln.
Keep rubbing until the skin no longer
feels sticky. In the morning wash the
nrms again with hot water, soap and
a loofah and rinse ln clear tepid water. Dry well, dust over with a good
powder and give a final rub with a soft
chamois leather.
Economy and Electric  Stove.,
There ls a growing use of electric
stoves and other devices of a similar
character, which ls not surprising if
one remembers that in addition to the
convenience of an electric stove lt ls
economical, due to its method of use.
It costs only a cent to run a chafing
dish or a teakettle for fifteen minutes.
A broiler suitable for a family of five
persons will broil a steak ln about five
minutes at a cost of only about i"i_
cents. A heating pan costs only three-
quarters of a cent every hour of its
use. Doubtless lf the cheapness of this
elegant method of cooking and heating
becomes more generally recognized its
use will increase more rapidly.—Electrical Review.
Let Baby Sleep.
A young infant ought to spend the
greater part of its time asleep. In fact,
the two great duties of Its life are feeding and sleeping, and the second ought
to occupy much more time than the
flrst Never allow a baby to be roused
from its sleep even to see the most
Important of visitors. Remember that
It is often politeness and net affection
which makes people ask to see the
baby and do not let the little one be
aroused from Its slumber. When lt
bas rested long enough lt will wake
naturally, but to be suddenly roused
often causes a considerable shock to Its
nerves and Injury to its health.
Chamois Skins.
Chamois skins are considered indispensable to the toilet, but they are an
Injury rather than a benefit lf not kept
perfectly clean. Tbey stand washing
like a pocket handkerchief lf treated
to lukewarm water and pure soap.
Face powder rubbed Into a clean
chamois skin will keep the skin free
from the disagreeable shiny appearance that characterizes the face of a
neglectful woman. It can be used as
often as you please without possible
Injury to the finest skin.
Housekeepers "Who-"Worry.
Lamb with worry sauce ls no better
than lamb without mint sauce, and neither can compare to Iamb with a nice
dressing of chopped vegetables.
Nor are the pies any better for the
fact that they are worried Into the pan
and worried out and worried even to
tho table.
Instead of fretting Invent a new dish
and study the cookery pictures and try
to get up something like them. That ls
the best and most original way to set a
good table.

Shocking her dressmaker. "I thought
every one knew that," remarked that
personage pityingly. "My goodness,

the simplest things!"
Paper Bas:..
Keep all your small paper bags for
slipping on the hands when the hearth
has to be tidied. You will find them
very useful, for they are slipped on ln
a moment and when soiled can be burned. They are better for the purpose
than housemaids' gloves, for the latter
soon get grimy and therefore are apt
to soil the hands a little as they are
put on and off.
Ink Stains.
If the ink bottle happens to be overturned upon household linen lose no
time in placing a blotter beneath the
stain to soak up as much as possible
and press another from above. Then
immerse the article ln a deep vessel
containing sweet milk. Wash well with
soap and bleach ln the sun.
The  Scissor..
Take tbe scissors ln tbe right hand
and a needle ln the left hand and hold
the needle on the slant of the scissors;
then work the scissors as if you were
cutting cloth. The scissors will glide

The Persians believe that the waves
of the Persian gulf are caused by air
entering caves which have subterranean outlets under the ocean. One of
the most curious beliefs of all—one
closely akin to a certain ancient oriental hell bellef-ls that of the south sea
Islanders. According to their notion,
the roiling of the sea is caused by a
"thunder god." In old times this
"thunder god" killed the chief deity of
tho Islands and was confined under the
ocean as a punishment. His rolling
with rage causes tho waves.

Spring ls the season when your
system needs toning up. In the spring
you must have new blood just as the
trees must have new sap. Nature-demands lt. Without new blood you
will feel weak and languid; you may
have twinges of rheumatism or neuralgia, occasional headaches, a variable appetite, pimples or eruptions of
the skin, or a pale, pasty complexion.
These are certain signs that the
blood Is out of order. The only sure
way to get new blood and fresh energy is to take Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. They actually make new, rich
blood—they are she greatest spring
tonic in the world. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills clear the skin, drive out
disease and make tired, depressed men
and women bright, active and strong.
Mr. Neil H. McDonald, Esl.mere, N.
B„ says: "It gives me great satisfaction to state that I have found
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills all that Is
claimed for thom. I was completely
run down, my appetite was poor and
I suffered much from severe headaches. Doctors' medicine did not give
me the needed relief, so I decided to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I used
only a few boxes when my former
health returned, and now I feel like a
new man."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are not only
the best spring tonic, but are a cure
for all troubles due to poor blood or
shattered nerves. That Is why they
cure headaches and backaches, rheumatism, anaemia, kidney and liver
troubles, and the special secret ailments of women and growing girls.

The accident on the Midland Railway in England', of which word catno
the otlier day, is probably the lirst
that has occurred in Great Britain in
flftooil months. During 1W.I and for
the two last months of the previous
year not a passenger on a train in
Great Britain lost his life. In the recent accident three brains got mixed
up in a fog, nnd four passengers and
two trainmen were killed, 'there will
be a very thorough enquiry into this.
In England the trains uro run on tho,
block system—the law compels it, and
Government Officials see that the
block system is observed. By this
system no train can pass a given
point until automatic evidence is put
up that the track is clear.
In time, when enough lives have
been lost and enough properly destroyed, we shall havo tho same system imposed by law on the railways
of this continent. Over hero Governments hesitate to meddle, In tho interests of life and proiwrty, with the
vast complicated business transacted
by railways. Level crossings remain
—the cost of hnving crossings thut
would not bo level would bo enormous. Tho block system is extremely expensive, and it reduces the traffic-carrying capacity of a rood—below
what somo of the roads carry at busy
times, if not below the safety mark.
It docs not allow ono train to crowd
on the heels of another, ln Canada
and the United Slates the view of
tho authorities is that tho railway
men know the railway business hotter than other |K'ople do, and will
introduce the block system and live
up to It strictly just ns soon as it
will pay—that is to say, when tho
loss of property by wrecks und tho
money paid in damages [or the
wounding and killing of peoplo
amounts to more unnually than the
interest would be on the cost of tho
block system.
In England they do not regmrd this
question as one that exclusively concerns tho railways. They consider
that a man's life—also a woman's or
child's—has a value over and above
what it will fetch in money if taken
and paid for b.v a railway. A writer
in Leslie's Monthly for February says
thut in —nglunil they control railways In the autocratic, arbitrary
English manner, wliich totally disregards tho inalienable rights of a
citizen to be massacred by the railroads. Over thero the Board of
Trade has an eye on tho railways.
"The chief inspector of tho board—
Col. Yorko is his name just now—is
a gentleman of military habits, and
what ho says goes, and goes insl miter," says the writer. "Behind him
is the whole power of the British
army. Not long ngo on inspector,
Impressed by certain dangerous conditions at a brunch of the London

This is the way they do it. The

Editor  and   Proprietor  of  the  Semi-
Weekly News, Portage la Prairie.
It cannot be truthfully said of many
of our Manitoba editors that they are
natives of the prairie province, but ln
the .case of J. J. McCulloch, editor and
proprietor of the Semi-Weekly News,
of Portage la Prairie, this is the first
point that will be conceded in his
favor. It is assuredly an advantage to
n man whose duty it is to point out
the requirements of a great and growing country and to be thoroughly posted on Its characteristics, to have been
born and bred in the land. More than
that Mr. McCulloch was born ln the
town of Portage la Prairie, where today he ls a man of importance, as one
of the moulders of public opinion
through the medium of the News.
' J. J. or "Jake" as he ls familiarly
called, by his friends, was born ln February, 1879. His father was an extensive farmer close to the town and the
subject of this sketch secured his educational training in the public schools
and collegiate Institute of Portage la
Prairie. Immediately after completing his education he learned the art of
"type sticking" in the old Manitoba
Liberal office in Portage, where he received a thorough course as a practical
printer, serving seven years on the
staff, the last three of which he was in
the capacity of foreman.
In 1903 when C. D. McPherson amalgamated the Graphic and Liberal in
Portage, Mr. McCulloch entered into
partnership with him nnd assumed the
business management of the Dally
Graphic and Weekly Liberal, which
position he successfully filled up to
June last, at which time he purchased
the News, the Conservative paper ln
that town, and took upon himself the
editorship and management. The
News had been conducted for a time
as a daily and weekly, but with his
thorough knowledge of the printing
business from a practical printer's
standpoint, Mr. McCulloch decided on
a semi-weekly publication and at once
inaugurated it.
Mr. McCulloch is perhaps the youngest editor in the province, but the old
saying, "young in years, yet in experience old," Is certainly applicable ln
his case. He has been successful ln
his undertakings in the newspaper
business, and his abilities ln that capacity are widely known. Since the
present proprietor acquired control of
the News, Its job printing and advertising has greatly Increased and the
paper itself is now known as one of
the strongest and most reliable, Conservative journals ln central Manitoba.
In addition to his ability as a scrbe
Mr. McCulloch is also a most capable
musician, an accomplishment which
adds to his popularity from both a
social and business standpoint. He

To Pastors and Sunday School Workers:—
The Twenty-sixth Annual Convention of this Association will be held
in Portage Ia Prairie on May 30th,
31st and June 1st, opening at 2 o'clock
on the flrst day.
Appoint your delegates.—Every Sunday school within the constituency
covered by our Association, Including
Rat Portage and Fort Fr'aaces on the
East to Estevan and Areola on the
West; South to the International
Boundary and North to Erwood on
the C.N.R. should send delegates. In
addition to the pastor and superintendent, who are ex-offlcio delegates,
eevry school is entitled to two delegates for one hundred members, or
fraction thereof, and one delegate for
each additional one hundred or fraction, thereof. The names of the delegates should be forwarded to the General Superintendent as early as possible.
Members of the Provincial Board
We should have a full attendance of
the members of the Board __t this convention. The exceedingly rapid
growth, the difficulties confronting us,
the constantly changing conditions
and the absolute necessity for correct
information from all parts of the field
renders it necessary that every mem
ber be present at meetings of the
Railway Fares.NThe usual liberal
arrangements, granted by the railway
companies, of a single fare for the
round trip, have been secured, provided 100 delegates, who have paid railway, fares, attend the convention. In
order to secure this, however, each
delegate must obtain from the agent
who sells the ticket a certificate showing that full fare has been paid to
Portage la Prairie.
Entertainment.—The Sunday School
workers of Portage la Prairie have
guaranteed that ample and suitable
accommodation will be secured for all
delegates, and lf possible at reduced
rates. No one need remain away for
fear of not finding a comfortable place
to stay.
Programme.—The most Interesting
and helpful programme ever offered
to a Sunday School convention in this
country is being prepared. It will
contain several new features. An outline of lt will appear in May issue of
"Progress."   •
Rev. John Potts, D.D., of Toronto,
writing under date of March 22nd, definitely promised to be with us and assist at our convention. He is Well
and favorably known all over the
United States and Canada, not only as
an effective preacher but also as a
powerful exponent of the best in present day Sunday School work. As
chairman for twelve years of the committee who has selected the lessons
for the weekly study of twenty-six
millions of people, and ln other ways
closely identified with the modern Sun,1
day School movement, will make his
addresses well worth the time and
money necesary for every pastor and
Sunday School worker to be present.
Mrs. Mary Foster Bryner. of Peoria,
Illinois, a member of the International
Staff wfll be with us on that occasion,
—she is one of the most popular
speakers on the Sunday School Platform. Calls for her expert services
come from almost eevry part of the
continent. The teachers of Primary,
Beginners' and Boys' Classes will be
especially helped by her addresses.
The General Superintendent heard
Mrs. Bryner deliver several addresses
while on the Mediterranean cruise
last year and can therefore speak at
first hand of her ability.

The President of one of the largest
of the many Scotch societies in this
country has a bonnle young daughter,
whose rendering of the beautiful songs
of her father's native country ls particularly pleasing. Her absolute command of the dialect Is ever a matter
of wonderment to her numerous admirers when they are made aware of
the fact that she has lived all her life
ln this land. A few evenings ago,
after a charming rendering of the
quaint "Logic o' lliu-liun" at a friend's
house, one of the most enthusiastic of
her friends exclaimed: "Say, she sings
Scotch so plain you can't understand
a word she says."

evidently unused to housekeeping, approached the raw Irish clerk and timidly asked: "I want some mutton to

Very wrong—and very long

From tho path where, good folk say,

To a blowiug sunlit door,
To the health and hope again
Of the world of living men:
Had you never fouud me there,
Climbing up that weary stair,
Giveu iill tho love yon gave,
Saved as only love cau save,
Surely still I had been fouud
Wmideriug,  sweetheart,  undergro u
Give me thy tenrs; I ask not for thy kiss
Or for thy smile—but ouly for thy tears
Take where  thon wilt thine hopes-
give me thy fears;
Lavish ou   shallower  loves   tby   time
of bliss:
But  when  it  ends,—and   naught  so

As bliss duth end—thongh it be years

Thongh  'twere  the  honr  before   the

Como to mo theu—I nsk uo boon but this.
