This was as great a lie as ever ren
whole out of a bishop's mouth. "I have
been obliged to fall In with the king's
views on tbe matter, for he has bad his
mind set on It from tho flrst mention
by De Longuevllle."
"Was it that bead eyed little mummy
who suggested lt?"
"Yes, and lf you marry the king of
Frauco you can repay blm with usury."
" 'Tis an inducement, by my troth."
"I do not tnliid saying to you In confidence that I tblnk it an outrage to
forco'a girl liko you to marry a man
like Louis of France, but how aro wo
to avoid it?"
By the "we" Wolsey put himself ln
alliance with Mary, and tho move was
certainly adroit.
"How are wo to avoid it? Have no
fear of that, my lord; I will show you."
"Ob, but my dear princess; permit
me. You do not seem to know your
brother. You cannot ln any wny avoid
this marriage. I believe he will Imprison you and put you on bread and
water to force your consent. I nm Bure
you bnd better do willingly that which
you will eventually be compelled to do
anyway; and, besides, there Is another
thought that has come to me. ShnlLI
speak plaiuly before Lady Jane, BollM-
! "I have no secrets from her.*'
"Very well. It ls this: Louis ls old
and very feeble. He cannot live long,
nnd It may be that you can by a ready
consent now exact a promise from your
brother to allow you your own choice
in tbe event of a second marriage. You
might In that way purchase what yon
could not bring about ln any other
"How do you know that I want to
purchase aught ln any way, Master
Wolsey? I most certainly do not intend to do so by marrying France."
"I do not know that you wish to purchase anything, but a woman's heart is
not always under ber full control, and
lt sometimes goes out to one very far
beneath her ln station, bnt tbe equal of
auy man on earth ln grandeur of soul
and nobleness of nature. It might be
that there ls such a man whom nny
woman would be amply Justified ln
purchasing at any sacrifice—doubly so
If it were buying happiness for two."
His meaning was too plain evfti to
pretend to misunderstand, and Mary's
eyes flashed at him as her face broke
Into a dimpling smile ln spite of ber.
Wolsey thought he had won, and to
clinch the victory said, In his forceful
manner: "Louis XII. will not live a
year; let me carry to the king your
consent, and I guarantee you his promise as to a second marriage."
In an instant Mary's eyes shot fire,
and ber face was like the blackest
"Carry this to the king: That I will
_rc blm and the whole kingdom sunk
In hell before I will marry Louis of
France. That ls my answer once snd
for all. Good even, Master Wolsey."
And she swept out of tbe room with
head up and dilating nostrils, the very
picture of defiance.
After Wolsey had gone Jane said to
Mary: "Don't you think It would have
been better had you sent u softer answer to your brother? I believe you
could reach his heart even now if you
were to make the effort. You have not
tried In this matter as you did in tbe
"Perhaps youare right, Jane. I will
go to Henry."
Mary waited until she knew the king
was alone, and then went to him.
Ou entering the room Bho said:
"Brother, I sent a has'y message to you
by tbo bishop of Lincoln this morning,
and have come to ask your forgiveness."
"Ah, little Bister, I thought you would
change your mind. Now you are a
good girl."
"Oh, do not misunderstand me. I
asked your forgiveness for tho message. As to tbe marriage, I came to tell
you that It would kill me and tbat I
_ould uot bear It. Oh, brother, you are
not a woman. You ennnot know."
Henry flew Into a passion and, with
oaths and curses, ordered ber to leave
bim unless she was ready to give her
consent. Sbe had but two courses to
tnke, so she loft witb her heart full of
hatred for tbo most brutal wretch who
ever snt upon a throne, and that Is
making an extreme case. As sbe was
going she turned upon him like a fury
and exclaimed:
"Never, never! Do you bear? Never!"
Preparations went on for 'the mar<
jingo just nn lf Mary bud given 'her
Jloloinn consent. Tho Important work
of providing tbe trousseau began- at
Once. When the qOeen went to her Wltb
silks nnd taffetas and flue cloths to
consult nbout the trousseau, although
the theme was one which would Interest almost any woman, she would have
none of lt, nnd when Catherine Insisted
upon her trying on a certain gown she
called her a blackamoor, tore tho garment to pieces nnd ordered her to leave
tbe room.
Henry sent Wolsey to tell her that
tbo 13th dny of August hnd been fixed
upon na the dny of the marriage, Do
Longuevillo to net as tbo French
king's proxy, nnd Wolsey waB glad to
come off Willi bis life.
Mntters were getting Into a pretty
tangle nt the palace. Mnry would not
speak to the king, nnd poor Cntlierlne

glanced mischievously from Jane to mo

merry and soft, as if it bad not come
from what was but now the home of
grief and pain.
"I know nothing about how I should
like to be done by." said Jane, with a
pout, "but lf you have such respect for
my wisdom I will offer a little more. I
.think It ls time we should be going."
"Now, Jane, you are growing foolish
again; I will not go yet," and Mary

down. She could not bring herself to
forego the pleasure of staying, dangerous as she knew It to be, and could not
bear the pain of parting, .even for a
short time, now tbat she had Brnndon
once more. The time was Boon coming
—but I am too fast again.
After a time Brandon said: "I think
Jane's wisdom remains wltb her, Mary.
It is better tbat you do not stay, much
as I wish to bave you."
She was ready to obey him at once.
When she arose to go she took both
his hands in hers and whispered:
" 'Mary.' I like the name on your lips,"
and then, glancing hurriedly over hex
snouiaer to see lf Jane and I were looking, lifted her face to him and rnn after
We were a little In advance of tbe
princess, and as we walked along Jane
said under her breath: "Now look out

any one. He has made a noble light

Is no wonder sbe loves him."
This made me feel a little Jealous.
"Jane, you could not love blm, could
yon?" I asked.
j "No matter what I could do, Edwin;
I do not, and that should satisfy you."
Her voice and manner said more than
her words. The hall was almost dark,
and—I have always considered that occasion one of my lost opportunities, but
tbey are not many.
Tb,e next evening Brandon and I,
upon Lady Mary's invitation, went up
to her apartments, but did not stay
long, fearing some one might find us
there and cause trouble. We would
not have gone et all had not tbe whole
court been absent ln London, for discovery would have been a serious matter to one of us at least.
As I told you once before, Henry did
not care how much Brandon might love
his Bister, but Buckingham had whispered suspicions of the state of Mary's
heart, and his own observations, together with the Intercepted note, had
given these suspicions a si rouger coloring, so that a very small matter might
turn them Into certainties.
The king bad pardoned Brandon for
tbe killing of the two men ln Billingsgate, as be was forced to do under tbe
circumstances, but tbcro bis kindness
stopped. After a short time bo deprived
him of his placo at court, and all that
was left for blm of royal favor was

Tlltl. treaty bad been agreed tip-

Mary Tudor was a settled fact. All it
needed was the consent of nn clgbtcen-

as marriageable women nre but commodities In statecraft, and theoretically,
at least, acquiesce in everything their
liege lords ordain.
Wolsey, whose manner wns smooth
as an otter's coat, had been sent to
fetch the needed "yes," but ho failed.
Jane told me about tt.
Wolsey bad gone prlvntely to see the
princess and had .thrown out a sort of
skirmish line by flattering ber beauty,
but bad found her not in the best humor. «.
"Yes, yes, my lord of Lincoln, I know

"I think he waB afraid, and, to tell
you the truth, I was afraid myself,"
answered Wolsey, with u smile. This
made Mary smile, too, In spite of herself and went a long wny toward putting ber ln a good humor. Wolsey continued: "His majesty could not have

I was really ln tbe wrong, but I did
not know the princess had invited you
to ber ball."
"Your lordship ls pleased to evade,"
returned Brandon. "It ls not the ballroom matter that I have to complain
of. As you have rightly snld, If you are
satisfied I certainly should be, but lt is
that your lordship, ln the name of the
king, instructed the keeper of Newgate
prison to confine mo In an underground
cell nnd prohibited communication with
any of my friends. You so arranged it
thnt my trial should be secret both as
to tho day thereof and tbe event, in order tbat lt should uot be known to
those who might be Interested in my
rolease. You promised the Lady Mnry
that you would procuro my liberty, nnd
thereby prevented her going to tho
king for that purpose, and afterward
told her that lt bad all been done, as
promised, and tbat I hnd escaped to
New Spain. It is becauso of this, my
lord Buckingham, that I now denounce you as a liar, a coward and n
perjured knight, and demand of you
such satisfaction as one man can give
to another for mortal Injury. If you
| refuse, I will kill you nB I would a cutthroat the next Ume I meet yon."
"I care nothing for your rant, fellow, but out of consideration for tbo

made it all sound like the truth, so

with a vicious sparkle ln her eyes.
"My Lord Bucklugham, this shall
cost you your head. Remember my
words when you aro on tbo scaffold,
Just wheu your neck fits Into the hollow of tho block."
He stopped, with on evident desire to

path and said: "Go, or I will have

It was this: The duke went at once to
the king nnd In a tone of Injured inno
cenco told blm of tho charge made by
Brandon, wltb Mary's evident approv
al, and debmnded fedreN* ror tno slander. Thus lt seemed that the strength
of our position was about to be turned
Against us. Brandon was at once summoned and promptly appeared before
the king, only too anxious to confront
the duke. As to the confinement of
Brnndon and his secret trial, the king
did not care to hear. That was a matter of no consequence to him. The important question was, Did Buckingham
attack the princess?
Brandon told the whole straight story
exactly as lt was, whleh Bucklugham
as promptly denied and offered to
prove by his almoner that he was at
his devotions on the night nnd at the
hour of the attack. So here was a conflict of evidence which called for new
witnesses, and Henry asked Brandon
If the girls had seen and recojnized the
,duke. To this question of course he
wns compelled to answer no, nnd the
whole accusation, after all, rested upon
Brandon's word, against which, ou the
other hand, wns the evidence of the
Duke of Buckingham and his convenient almoner.
All this disclosed to tho full poor
Mary's anxiety to help Brandon, and,
the duke hnving adroitly let out the
fnct that he had just met tho princesB
with Brandon at a certain secluded
spot In the forest, Henry's suspicion
of her pnrtlality received new force,
nnd he began to look upon the unfortunate Brnndon as a partial cause at
least of Mary's aversion to tbe French
Henry grow angry and ordered
Brnndon to leave the court with the
sullen remark that lt was only his
services to the Princess Mary tbat
saved him from a day with papers on

Henry was by no means ^pire that

were correct, and ln all be had beard
he had not one substautial fact upon
Which to base conviction. He bad not
seen her with Brandon since tneit
avowal, or he would have had a fact
ln every look, tbe truth ln every motion, a demonstration In every glance.
She seemed powerless even to attempt
concealment. In Brandon's handsome
manliness and -evident superiority the
king thought he saw a very clear possibility for Mary to love, and where
there iB such a possibility for a girl
she usually falls to fulfill expectations.
Now, all this brought Brandon Into
the deep shadow of the roynl frown,
and like many another man he sank
his fortune ln the fathomless depths of
a woman's heart and thought himself
rich In doing it.

He had never abandoned this plan,

Minister's Annual Report — Sketches
Out Policy of Government.
The report of fhe Minister of Education has appeared. Dr. Pyne seems to
foreshadow the appointment of a Director of Education for the Province,
ln a paragraph which Bays:
"Education la, however, so special
a .object that no Minister would claim
to bo an expeVt t.preln, and therefore
a comprehensive educational scheme
for any State needs to be shaped as
regards Its general technique and details by a well-directed and far-sighted
policy of development: This must proceed from some Individual having a
commanding knowledge of modern education, and of modern educational method. In the nature of things a Minister cannot devote sufficient time to
become an educational expert of the
highest order himself, nor is that his
appropriate function, either here or
elsewhere, so that although the Minister
must ever control the great question of
departmental policy which represent
the decisions of the State as regards
the whole Issue, tho realization of the
educational system requires that the
chief administrator shall be really director of education."
School children will say amen to the
following, which eliminates home-work
by evolution:
"It would seem, however, as the present movement toward a unification of
the interests of the home and school
go forward that the school, directly,
will furnish less rather than more home
work for the children. If the school
properly performs Its function of giving the pupil a day filled with educative work, It is difficult to see why lt
ought still to pursue him into the period that he should have for recreation,
or Into the hours when he would better
be asleep."
In regard to the dearth of teachers
the report says:—"It Is clear the teaching profession does not furnish Inducements sufficiently tempting to warrant
young persons ln Incurring the expense
necessary to become qualified. The
salaries paid, though slightly In advance ef some previous years are exceedingly low when compared with
what ls paid to persons In other callings of life."
It appears that this year the numtM
holding first-class certificates In o. •
public and separate schools Is only 61"*.
The number holding second-class certificates 8,976. There are 8,682 holding
third-class certificates; 624 holding extensions or renewals of third-class certificates; 56 are teaching on old country
Board certificates. There remain 635
who hold only district certificates, and
326 holding only temporary certificates.
Four hundred and twenty-two appear
not to hold any legal certificates of
qualifications. These, however, are
mostly teaching In separate schools, and
will doubtless soon qualify, In view ot
the recent decisions of the court. The
certificates of 170 are not reported.
From these figures It Is clear a great
many children ln our public and separate sohools are not taught by teachers with good qualifications. What,
then, should be done? Should a school
which employs a teacher holding only
a district certificate receive any share
of ths Legislative grant? Has not the
time come when a mode of distributing the 1240,000 annually paid should
be plaesd upon a different basis? This
Is a question for the Legislature to
deal with.
Statistics give the number of pupils
enrolled tn the public schools as 408,-
161, a decrease of 4,963. The number
of enrolled pupils ln Roman Catholic
separate schools ls 47,117, an Increase
of 1,168 over the year before. There are
5,784 public schools, or 63 more than
ill the year previous, and there are 412
Catholic separate schools, an Increase
of 21.

Catholic   separate  schools—
Counties, 27.60; cities, 110.59; towns,
22.93;   province, 29.01.
Of the 450,278 pupils ln 1903, 260,617
or 57.88 per oent. were enrolled In rural schools and 189,661 or 42.12 per cent

The average salaries for teachers In

men and 2285 for women. In rural
schools they were 2372 and 8288, and
ln all urban schools, $743 and 2998 respectively.    —
It will be noticed that the salaries
are higher than ln any previous year

The Preparation,  Planting and Cultivation of an  Abundant Yield  of
Fruits' and Vegetables.        £
The majority of farmers pay too little attention to their garden. Miny
have "no time" for Its care and after
onoe plowing the land they leave the
planting and hoeing to ^the "women
folks." It seems to me that no farmer
can afford to be without a well-cared-
foi- garden, since It supplies his table
with a large variety of food of the Best
kind, cheaper than he can buy lt ln
the market.
When, selecting a spot for garden,
choose a place as near the house as
possible, for the convenience of the
women who do the harvesting. The
land should be naturally or artificially
well drained, since crops suffer less
from drought, as well as from excess
of water on well-drained land. Iti ls
always well to get' a southern exposure, it possible, with a sloping or undulating surface, as the land warms
up earlier ln spring, allowing earlier
cultivation and hence earlier crops.
Planning the Garden.
At the outset the size of the garden
lr, the first problem to be solved. Tills
should be regulated by the household
requirements; for a quarter to a half
an acre will grow enough for a family
of four or five persons. The garden
should be fenced; movable panels taut
can be taken- down during cultivation,
will prove most satisfactory. Before
starting to put ln garden seeds, lt Is
well to outline some definite plan. Most
farmers are familiar with a system of
rotation and recognize Its value ln the
garden. An elaborate system of rotation need not be practiced. Such a one
as outlined below would produce good
results. At first divide the garden Into
four or five portions. This can be dono
by stakes or by marking the spaces on
the fence. One of these divisions,
should be reserved for perennial crops,
as asparagus, rhubarb, brambles, currants and grapes. It may remain as
planted for a period of 10 or 16 years.
The other sections contain about all tho
vegetables a farmer would care to raise
for home consumption. The crops
grown on section two one year are
grown on section three the following
year. Thla change la similar In the
other sections, making a four year rotation with tbe Introduction ot a cover
crop. This cover crop ls sown as early
In July as possible and plowed down
In late fall.

A young woman of great, perhaps
too great, aenslbllity, according to the
Dundee Advertiser, begged to be excused from, visiting an aunt who lived ln
an old fashioned house, where pictures
of a certain period wero ln evidence.
"There la an engraving of a blacksmith's shop In the dining-room!" said
«he, hysterically. "You can't expect me
to eat my dinner there; I smell the
hoofs." A similar criticism came from
one who suffered not from over-refinement, but- from something quite different. She was a woman of recently acquired wealth, who went into an art
gallery, and asked for a painting of
n certain size. "I have Juat what you
want," said the dealer. He showed
her a beautiful animal painting, but
she looked at lt for a few minutes, and
then shook her head. "It won't do,"
she said; "I want this picture for. my
drawing room " "But It's a beautiful
thing," ventured the dealer. "Not for
a drawing-room," answered the wqman,
conclusively: "you couldn't have a cow

By rotating crops we accomplish certain things—Insects and fungous diseases are largely avoided; tha amount
of humus In the soil ls increased by
plowing the cover-topi by growing
leguminous cover-crops, nitrogen is
added directly to the soil and the
characteristic deep reaching roots allow the air to penetrate more readily,
causing more thorough aeration, and
deepening the surface soil; the plant
food Is used to better, advantage by
growing shallow-rooted plants after
deep-rooted; weeds are more easily
kept down where rotation ls practiced
and the cultivation Is properly done.
The garden ls capable of high productivity and ls worthy of special treatment This treatment should commence the year before the garden is
planted, a heavy coating of barnyard
manure may be applied ln the fall, then
plowed under, leaving the land exposed
to the action of frosts, or a green crop
may be grown and treated ln the same
manner as manure. This treatment
will be of more benefit man If sod was
plowed down ta spring and the garden
Immediately planted, because ln the
latter case the vegetable material will

Tankage As Pig Feed.
Speaking of the value of tankage as
a feed for pigs, a United States bulletin says: "Iu view of increasing use
of tankage as a food for pigs and the
beneficial results reported by feeders
as attending this use, the Indiana-station has carried out experiments
which show that as a feeding material
for pigs tankage offers certain advantages. In contains a high percentage
of protein and an amount of phosphoric acid that materially excels that
found In any grain or byproduct of
mills. The phosphoric acid for pigs ls
useful in building up bone structure,
an Important feature with our pigs of
to-day, while the protein has a value
universally recognized by feeders.
These experiments also strongely emphasize ike weakness ot using corn-
meal as a single ration ln feeding
growing, fattening pigs and Indicates
the great value of adding a food rich
In protein (such as tankage) to the
corn, thus producing a better balanced
ration and.securing moro desirable results In both health and growth."

It was on tbe 22d of November, 1885,
that tbe friendly natives with whom he
was traveling brought Dr. David Livingstone for tbe flrst time within sight
aud sound of the wonderful cataract
on the Zambezi river, now known as
the Victoria falls. Before finding It
the good missionary bad Journeyed for
nearly two years, and from bis point
of departure at Kuruman, In Cape Colony, had traversed quite 4,000 miles of
hitherto unknown country.
Today one takes the train at Cape
Town on Wednesday, passes through
Klmberley on Thursday, reaches Bulu-
wayo on Saturday, and late in the afternoon of Sunday begins to see ln tbe
distance the rlstng pillar of mist from
tbe great cataract.
The natives cull lt "Mosl-oa-tunl,"
meaning "the roaring smoke." Twenty
miles away the spray thrown back
from the depths of the tremendous cavern into which the river tumbles appears like a column of smoke rising
from a burning village, and during tho
last mile of the railway Journey the
roar of the falling water becomes noticeable. Finally, when tbe edge of
tlie chasm ls reached, lf the river Is ln
flood, tho eye snd ear are aBsatled by
a combination of phenomena that probably cannot be duplicated as marvels
anywhe-e else on the planet
The first question that ls asked of an
American who bas seen this African
wonder generally Is, "How does lt.com-
pare with Niagara ?" Thero Is no' possibility of comparison. The two are an
different as day and night Niagara ls
a perfect picture In a lovely natural
framework. Every point and Hue and
curve of motionless rock, trembling
verdure and gliding water ls a touch of
majestic beauty. Victoria Is simply a
phenomenon, a terrific gash In tbe floor
of au apparently unending plain, which
as oue gazes simply swallows a river
ln a manner tbat produces almost a
thrill of horror.
The Zambezi valley for a hundred
miles or more ln every direction from
the cataract ls a rough and broken
plateau covered wltb low brush and
stunted trees, wltb here and there an
outcrop of somber basaltic rock, all
thoroughly uninteresting. The herbage
Is but faintly green and tbe tropical
sky only faintly blue. It Is a hazy
half tone landscape, wantlug lu clear
cut lines In every direction and lacking,
above everything else, that element
Wo always unconsciously seek In a
nature picture—life. The absence of
this produces In the mind a feeling of
lonellnosB and often of fear. Across
this solemn scene appears a river tbat
In flood time ls perhaps half a mile
wide. If a deaf man were following
down one of its hanks be would notice
littlo but tbe quiet wnter aad the odd
looking column of smoke ahead. As
this column was approuched be would
expect to see the river banks bending
and the water flowing uway to one
sido of tho conflagration and might
glance to tbe right and left to note tbe
direction taken. But the panorama
changes as bo gazes. The river Is no
more, and there, whero lt should be,
Is only the brown plain, as lonely,
brush covered and monotonous as ever.

Meantime tba pillar of smoke bas resolved Itself Into a dense mist forced
upward In terrible puffs from a yawning gash stretching directly across the

every second swallowing thousands of
tons of green and white water and
belching up blasts of mist that rise
hundreds of feet Into the air and hurry
away with the winds as lf rejoicing
at their escape from the Inferno below.   And somewhere, nearly 400 feet
below, the entrapped river is fighting
Its way between sheer walls of black
rock toward a narrow cleft ln  the
eastern wall, whence lt escapes, foaming and boiling, through the zigzags
and curves of a deep gorge leading off
to the eastward.   One goes to an edge
of  this  delivering  chasm   and  looks

It ls Interesting to note that totemlsm
ls found not only ln Alaska, but among
the North Americnn Indians, the aborigines of Australia, tbe Hottentots of
Africa and even the bill tribes of India. Totems are also common among
the Snmouus.
Broadly tho totem Is the badge of a
clan or tribe, but It signifies a great
deal more than mere political or social
alliance. It ls not ouly a tribal emblem, but also a family sign; uot merely a symbol of nationality, but also
an expression of religion; not simply
a bond of union among primitive peoples, but also a regulator of the marriage laws and of other social Institutions. A totem has been defined as "a
class of material objects which a savage regards with superstitious respect,
believing that there exlats between
blm and every mimber of the class an
Intimate and special relation."
Among the OJlbway Indians there
are uo fewer than twenty-three different totems. Nine of these are quadrupeds, marking out the wolf, the bear,
tlie beaver and other clans, eight' are
birds, five aro Ashes aud one ls the
Some extraordinary superstitions regarding totems prevail In Samoa. Thus
It Is believed tbat If a turtle man eats
of a turtle bo will grow very ill, and
the voice of the turtle will be beard In
his Inside saying: "He ate me. I am
killing blm." If a banana man uses a
banana leaf for a cap be becomes bald.
If a butterfly man catches a butterfly
it strikes blm dead. If a fowl man
eats a fowl delirium snd death results,
and so on, all going to show tbat tbe
totem has something of tbe quality of
a fetich as well aa tbe significance of
a family emblem.
Regarding totemlsm, it ls te be noted
that the relation of mutual help and
protection Includes also the totem Itself—that ls to say, If a man takes
care of his totem he expects the totem to return the compliment If the
totem Is a dangerous animal lt must
not hurt his clansmen. The scorpion
men of Scnegambla declare tbat tbe
most deadly scorpions will run over
their bodies without hurting them.
There Is a snake clan In Australia
which holds to a similar belief. Among
tbe crocodile clr.n of the Bochuanas If
a man Is bitten by a crocodile er even
bas water splashed on him by one he le
expelled from the clan as one esteemed
unworthy by the totem.—Housekeeper.
Tbe nests eaten by eastern people
are made by birds of tho swift tribe,
which nre remarkable for the character
of their saliva. This, being extremely
sticky, quickly sets Into a substance
resombllug gelatin, of which their edible nests are made. In shape these
resemble half a saucer and are usually
to be found ln caves, attached to rocks.
They have no particular taste, but
serve as a basis for thick, clear soup,
to wblcb various flavorings may bo
added at pleasure. ..

said Murphy politely. "Can't you
please tell me how soon I'll get

the trainer rather Impatiently. The

To Build Robust Health
start at the foundation of life and health. Assist your
organs to do their work properly. Food and drink cannot
nourish if your liver is not working right. Dyspepsia and
Indigestion follow if your digestive organs are out of
order. Constipation cannot exist if your bowels are free.
A short course of Beecham's Pills will soon put you right
and an occasional one will keep you so.
will do more to build up robust health and maintain ft than
any other medicine. They have dene this, end are continually doing it for thousands all over the world. If you
start now and take BEECHAM'S PILLS occasionally yon
will certainly benefit to a remarkable degree.

That the education of children
ould be muoh better and more easily
ccomplished by letting them study
new life knowledge in the newspapers
than "embalmed facts" ol the past
in solemn school books is the opinion
of Dr. William H. Lynch, principal
of the schools of Salem, Mass. In
part of the recent address on "The
Press as an Educator," before the
Section of Social and Economic Sciences he said the following:
"The latest advance fa** scientific
knowledge, the newest inventions
and discoveries in every branch of
human endeavor are all heralded in
the morning or evening despatches.
Years hence the textbooks will as it
were, embalm them in their solemn
pages. Why should the child now
be compelled to sit in darkness with
the light of knowledge" blazing all
around him through the columns of
the newspapers?"
"Tthe functions of the press," said
Dr. Lynch, "is as important as that
of the railroad, and both are indispensable. An intelligent people must
be fed, and intelligence, like virtue,
grows by what it feeds upon.
"It must be obvious to all thoughtful'people that the newspapers may
easily be made the medium of imparting valuable information in many
departments of knowledge on which
the very latest textbooks arc mere
blanks. Take, for example, the experiments of Marconi in wireless telegraphy, so minutely recorded and
illustrated in almost every newspaper.
Would not the study of the despatches describing the achievements
of the great Italian, by boys and girls
sufficiently advanced to understand
them, be infinitely more profitable
than the .dull book pages they arc
compelled to read concerning the laying of the first ocean cables so many
years ago?:'
"Take another current subject with
the discussion of which the newspapers have been filled in the most
instructive and luminous way—that
of Venezuela. What might not a'
competent teacher, with the aid of
the press, have accomplished in the
treatment of this question toward the
instilling in the minds of his pupils
•correct understanding and conception of the Monroe doctrine, let us
say, or a knowledge of the Spanish
American republics generally and our
relations to them. Then there was
.he great coal strike and the war between Russia aaid Japan, bo>bli of
which had an educational value, of
which advantage should be taken in
every public school.

Do the Next Thing.
From an old English parsonage
Down by the sea,
There came ln the twilight
A message to me;
Its quaint Saxon legend.
Deeply engraven,
Hath, as It seems to me,
Teaching tor heaven;
And on through the hours
The quiet words ring
Like a low inspiration—
"Do the next Thing."
Many a questioning.
Many a fear,
Many a doubt
Hath Its guiding here;
Moment by moment
Let down from heaven
Time, opportunity
Ouldance are given;
Fear not to-morrow,
Child of the King,
Trust it with God—
"Do the Next Thing."
Do It Immediately,
Do It with prayer,
Do It teliantly,
Casting all care;
Do it with reverence.
Tracing Hia hand
Who hath placed it before thee
Wltlvdarnest command;
Stayeiron omnipotence.
Safe 'neath His wing,
Leave all resulting*—
"Do the Next Thing."
Looking to God-
Ever serener.
Working or Buffering,
Be thy demeanor,
In the nluule of HI* presence,
Tlie rest of His calm,
The light of HIb countenance,
Live out thy psalm;
Stronc In His faithfulness.
Praise Him and sing
Then as He beckons thee—
"Do the Next thing."

Plaid and decked flannels mane vtt'
shrinkabie by a new process and the
addition of a little cotton in 'the filing
are excellent waist materials. These
goods, it is said, are not only yery
durable but stand the laundry ordeal
without discomfiture.
Printed flannelette is a good line
for house wear and kimonas. These
are napped on one side and show a
cashmere surface on the printed side.
While this line is not new the pattern
obtainable this year show much improvement over former productions.
Velvet Jackets.
Among fancy jackets for fall are
boleros or etons of velvet, black, deep
crimson, brown, green or blue. These
are made with elbow sleeves only
and with a cuff of the velvet turning
back over the-sleeve. These little
jackets are lined with silk and very
daintily finished and are worn over
either silk or stuff gowns that have
sleeves fitting tight at the wrist. It
really takes very little velvet to make
one; three and a half yards of the
ordinary silk velvet would be sufficient, and they give just the additional warmth necessary for early fall
days, and are very becoming.
In white goods and wash materials
embroidery effects are very prominent. Garments of silk relieved by
eylet embroidery are selling well.
Tlhis is found in skirts, underskirts
and  waists.
The eylet idea is found in cloths
for both evening and street wear
which shows the favor accorded to
embroideries this fall.
The tendency to favor embroideries
for. winter use is very strong and as
prices show an upward tendency and
staples a scarcity, it is well to see to
your stock being completed. Heavy
sorts of every nature are in demand,
including medallions.
As a trimming for wash waists
these are prominent.

others: "A few years ngo the President decided to appoint Mr. Wyuu, now
consul general at- London, to be first
assistant postmaster-geucrnl. 'How will
we keep this from tho newspapers?' was
asked by some of the President's
advisers. 'I think that the best way
would be to tnke the newspaper cor
respondents iuto onr confidence.' said
the President. This was doue, and tho
secret was carefully guarded for a
month, although known ail that time
by fifty or moro Washington correspondents."

There are still a number of houses within the
radius of our Electric Lighting system that are
