Mannering nodded. It all seemed so
unreal, so impossibly. Why, a lew
months ago he had been a mere nobody, of no consequence, a kind of
adventurer, free to do and go as he
willed, in whose affairs no one was
interested. And now— He looked
round the snugly furnished oftico. nt
the White-haired, smiling, deferential
old lawyer as if the wholo thing were
a dream from which he should presently awake.
"Of course you will go down to
Lesborough at once," continued Mr.
Tressider. "Do you propose living
there, or will you go into tho town
house? It has been closod for some
time; you know that the late carl
was—er—economical? Ho amassed a
largo fortune; you will benefit by his
economy and prudence, my lord!"
Vane gazed absently at the window, through the grimy panes of
which he could se* the rooks which
had attracted his attention as he
entered; and they still aeemod to
have moro interest for him than the
lawyer's remarks.
"I think I'll go to Lesborough," he
snid, at last, but with an indifference
which disappointed Mr. Tressider,
who had expected the new earl to
display some eagerness if not excitement. "I haven't made any plans."
"Quite so; quite sol Too early
yet; you have scarcely realized your
sudden accession to the title, the
change in your life. I will write to
the steward, Mr. Holland—you remember hiin?—he will want to make
some preparations. Dear, dear, how
glad I am to lind you are alive!
None of your friends can be more rejoiced, I assure you, my lord.
Strange"—he smiled and paused—"I
was just writing to the next heir.
I nm afraid you can scarcely expect
him to share in ray satisfaction."
Vane looked interested for the flrst
"The next heir?" ba wid, enquiringly.
"Vcs; your cousin, Mr. Julian
Shore. He wrote to me, and called
on mo when poor Lord Augustus and
his boy died, and we feared you were
lost in the Alpina. He was, very
naturally—or—interested in the question of the succession."
"How can he, with the name of
Shore, be the next heir?" asked
"Oh, don't you know? Weren't you
aware that there was a feud between
his father and the late earl? So
great and bittor that he discarded
the name of Mannering and took the
name of Shore, which Mr. Julian
now bears."
"I never heard of him," said Mannering. "I'm afraid he will be very
disappointed at my turning up," he
added, grimly.
"No doubt; no doubt," asserted
Mr. Tressider,  dryly.
"What kind of man is he?" asked
Mr. Tressider hesitated. It waa the
sort of question which a cautious old
lawyer would not be disposed to answer very readily!
"He is a young man about five-and-
twenty, I should say—a remarka'ily
good looking young fellow; not like
the Mannerings, by the way; but
dark, very J.irk. His mother was a
Spuniard. Ho has vory nice manners
— nothing could be moro tactful and
—er—proper than his way of regarding his claim to the title and estates."
"Is he poor or rich?" asked Vane.
"Well, he is not particularly well
off. He has a small Income, left him
by his father, aad he makes a little
In some way on the Stock Exchange,
I fancy; but I am not quito sure. Of
course, I know his father, but I had
not seen Mr. Julian since he was a
lad until tho othoi  day."
"Is he married?" asked Vane.
"No; oh, no! I acked him that
question. By the way. Lord Lesborough, it is one I ahoulil like to
nsk you. I am under the impression
that you are a buchelor."
Vane looked away to the window
"I have no wife," ho said, gravely.
Mr. Tressider nodded with almost
obvious relief. Por the moment, as
Vane hesitated, he had dreaded that
he should hear that the young carl
had married—and probably beneath
his present rank.
"Ah, yes, yes!" he murmured.
"Plenty of time; though I trust I
may have the pleasure ol seeing a
Countess of Lesborough before long."
Vane rose, but Mr. Tressider extended his hand appealingly.
"Oh, pray don't go yet, my lord,"
he said; "th.ire are so many things I
Want to speak to you about, to arrange. And—er—perhaps the first
subject is tbo iniportunt and inovi-
tuble ono of—cr—money. 1 do not
know whether you need any at the
present moment—you will excuse
Vane smiled.
"I have a few shillings." he said.
Mr, Tressider nodded as if this
wero not the least satisfactory moment of tho Intorvlow,
"Quito so; quite so! 1 will make
arrangements—will pay a sum, as
large as you please, into the bank
this afternoon. Meanwhile, you will
permit me to be your banker. I_et
rae I..-.' I have some notes and Will
not trouble you to cash a cheque!"'
He went to the safe end from his
cash box took out a littlo pile of
notes, counted them and laid tbem
on the table before  Vane.
"There is a hundred nnd twenty
pounds there, I think you will find.
It is fortunate tbnt 1 hnd just received a payment this morning. II
that is not sufficient I will send a
clerk to tho bunk—''
Vane smiled gravely.
"I shan't spend more thnn a hundred nnd twenty before to -morrow,"
he snid.
As ho spoke the door opened and
the dork brought in the usual piece
of paper with a visitor'i nnme written on it. '
Mr. Tressider looked rather embarrassed.
"Strange coincidence!" he said,
"tt ls Mr. Julian Shore. Ask Mr.
Shore to kindly wait—"
Vane looked up quickly. "No, no.
Will you let him com* In? I should
UU tf IN mlui.t^
Mr. Tressider nodded and the clerk j
went out and ushered in a tall, thin
young man with a remarkably handsome face and   a graceful    bearings. !
He was almost as dark as a typical i
Spnniurd,   with eyes  that   were   well I
nigh    black,    and   screened   by long
silky lashes.
As he entered, he looked from the I
lawyer—still rather embarrassed—to
Vane; then his eyes fell on the sheaf
of notes, and the black orbs seemed
to deepen suddenly, swiftly, but in
an Instant the fleeting expression hnd
vanished and given placo to one of
courteous curiosity.
"I beg your pardon, Mr. Tessldor,"
he said in a singularly soft and low
voice. "I did not know you were engaged—"
"l'ray tako a sent, Mr. Sin,re,"
said Mr. Tressider, "you hove called
at a most auspicious—" the word
seemed rather inappropriate, not to
say heartless, and he paused nud
stumbled in search of a better, but
failed to find one, and su gave up
the idea of "breaking" the news to
the next heir and blurted out the introduction.
"I must make you two gentlemen
known to each other. Mr. Shore,
this is Mr. Mannering—tut, tut! I
mean Lord Lesborough."
Vane, with a feeling of pity and
sympathy, wus watching the man
whose hopeB he was destroying, and
he saw the polite look of inquiry,
doubt and then dismay and pain
which passed over the dark, handsome face. The lids fell over the
dark eyes, as if their owner desired
to hide them.
"Lord—Lesborough!" fell from his
lips, which had grown almost whito.
"Lord Lesborough!    Then—then—"
"Exactly!" put in Mr. Tressider,
as the soft voice broke and fell
away. "Mr. Mnnnering wns uot lost
in the Alpina. He was rescued and
has only just returned to London;
has indeed only been here wfth me a
few minutes. Of course, I should
have  let you  know—"
It was an awkward, a trying moment for both the young men. Vane
felt as if he had been guilty of inexcusable meanness in not getting
drowned; und wiih a flush and a
frown he rose and held out his hand.
"I' sorry—" he began, then ho
shrugged his shoulders. What could
he say?
But Julian Shore had recovered
from the shock, and rising instantly
ho took Vane's strong, firm hand in
his soft, white one; a sniilo glittered
in his eyes and curved his rather thin
lips, and the low, musical voice said:
"And you are the new carl! Well"
—he drew a quick, short breath, then
he shrugged his shoulders—"we can't
both have the title, and—Lord Lesborough, I assure you that I am
heartily  glad that you%are alive!"
Nothing could havo been better
done; and Vane, feeling if anything
still more guilty and ashamed of his
existence, gripped gratefully the
white hand of the disappointed man.
"Thanks," he said. "Thanks! I'm
almost sorry that I didn't go down
with the ship. You'd have mnde a
better earl tban I shall, Mr. Shore.''
"Oh, come, come!" murmured Mr.
Shore, laughing softly. "Don't sny
that—and—we are cousins, aren't we?
I hope you'll call me Julian!"

All that Is known with any certainty
of Nicholas is the bare fact that he
lived ln Asia Minor somewhere about
the beginning of the fourth century.
He was bishop of Myra, a Lyclan sea-
coast town, venerable, of course, for
his piety and benevolence, and he was
revered ba tbe east at least as early as
the sixth century. In the Greek church
he takes rank Immediately after the
five great fathers, and under tbe name
of St Nicholas of Myra he Is esteemed
as patron saint of by far the largest
body of Orthodox Greeks, tbe Russian
empire. As early as the year 500 Justinian dedicated a church in Constantinople to the reuowned bishop. In the
west, where for a reason he Is more
commonly known as St. Nicholas of
Bari, he was acclimatized for good In
the eleventh century. Ills vogue in tbe
north began with tbe twelfth, but extended so rapidly that by tbe reformation he probably possessed in England
alone more churches end chapels dedicated ln his houor than any other holy
Don't Talk ot Yonr Health.
If you are not well don't talk about
To do so only exaggerates your consciousness of physical discomfort; also
lt casts a shadow of gloom over other
people. They grow hesitant about asking you how you feel. It gives thetn
cold chills to be continually told that
yon are "not very well" or "not so
well" or "about tlie same."

so much lighter a tone 111 his voice
that Mr. Tressider was surprised.

of his shoulders. "I'll wire to Holland to say you may come to lesborough at any moment, and I hope

Julian slowed up for a moment.

Tke Velocity of I.ljclit.
Watch the train as it dashes past
you with a speed of sixty miles per
hour, and after it Is lost in the distance sit down on the track and figure
a little on the velocity of light. The
train has passed with a mighty rush
and great noise, but the silent beam of
light fMts past with a speed 11,179,-
500 times greater! The Initial velocity
of a ball fired from a twelve pounder
Is 1,765 feet per second; that of light
1,560,134 feet In the same length of
time. Comparisons give us but a very
poor Idea of the velocity, but they enable ns to partially comprehend the
immensity of the universe, for wo

The Importance of AdTertisilnfr.
Time wus when advertising was regarded as "blowing oue's own horn,"
and there have been In it at times
fakes and frauds, just as there bave
beeu in other Hues of business. All
that has changed very perceptibly iu
the past three or four decades. Business men have realized that tho world
Is too large to ask tbe people in It to
hunt arouud and tiud out for themselves what tho manufacturer makes
and what the merebnut bas to sell. Tho
possible consumer must be fouud aud
told about what Is for sale and wby
he should buy It. That is all there is
to advertising.—Indjanapo!is Star.

gray hue that recalls certain tones of
tbo green fig. The front aspect Is tbat
of the most elegant priucess, the silhouette accentuated by broad crossed
strappings of the velvet and tbe upper
part thrown back bolero-wise, with revel's of shot silk uud a cascade of lovely tambour lace.
Tbe back, however, furnishes the daring feature of this confection, for there
tbe strappings develop into a watteau
effect, the folds falling direct from between the shoulders, where they converge Iuto narrowness from a handsome cut steel buckle. The short elbow
sleeves are entirely of lace, Inclosed
within a crossed sheath arrangement
of the velvet. Perfection of line, fuult-
less finish and general "ton" raise this
costume to a niche of its owu.
Two very up to date fancies in millinery occupy the second cut. The first
model is an individual one of brown

by a sweepiug cache peigne of ostrich
feathers, shading from brown to pis-
taehe green, tbe brim curled up and,
according to the artistic feeling of the

A thing of deft handling is the second hut shown, it being wholly of taf'
fetn drawn into tight flutes, with a
touch of black velvet, and nt the left
side one of Iho new full fan ospreys. In
this, as iu much of the millinery, the
dislinguisbing particular Is found ln

order the present correct style for
street wear for all but ceremonious occasions.
It Is understood that black cloth costumes are to be greatly ln vogue once
more. There is nothing thnt quite
comes up to them whenever a quiet
elegance ls required and a certain becoming dressiness. But, while black
suits appeal to matrons especially aud
of all ages, lt cannot be denied thnt the
younger set once out of their teens
sometimes look their best ln them.
But, on the other hand, they are not
so likely to forswear the beautiful new
colored cloths which In point of fact
represent their youth and beauty to
perfection and give so animated an expression of color to winter day assemblages.

Inward cleansing is as necessary as outward bathing. To keep the
bowels free and regular is of even greater importance than to keep
the skin-pores from becoming clogged. The neglect of either invites disease. Everyone needs a natural laxative occasionally, to
free the bowels of accumulated impurities    For this purpose take
the greatest boon ever offered to those who suffer from llie ills
that follow constipation.. For over fifty years Beecham's Pills have
been famous as a Stomach corrective, a Liver regulator and Bowel
laxative. They never gripe nor cause pain. Powerful purgatives
arc dangerous. Avoid them. Use Beecham's Pills. They give relief without doing violence to any organ. Their action is in harmony with physical laws. Take them regularly and the necessity
for their use becomes less frequent. They are a natural laxative
and a positive cure for Constipation, Biliousness, Indigestion, Sick
Headache and Dyspepsia.

—Ink that the concepton of disease*
. in lu wus tue basis of medicine a
a mode was not in accord with facts;
md, Influenced by that Impression, he
rtrould attempt to present a religlo
nedlci which, he trusted, rested upon
mrer grounds._ The prevailing Idea
>f disease was of a something that
was woeful and malignant, evil in orl-
{ln, evil in intent, evil in effect. Tho
popular view claimed that disease was
i calamity, that its end was destruction, and that it was purposeless except in the direction of doing barm.
Popular terms bore testimony to the
prevalence of tbat belief. Man was
laid to be struck down by disease
is by an avenging angel. It seized
upon him as did a roaring lion.
It consumed him as did a lire. The
ittltudo of the medical men towards
disease was that of an opponent to
deadly influences. He had to combat an enemy to mankind, whose
.very movement was dark and malicious. There was no symptom of disease that was not believed to be noxious, and as such must be stamped
out with relentless determination.
If the patient were sick the sickness
must be stayed, lf he coughed the
cough must cease, if he failed to take
food he must be mado to eat, and
why? Because these were manifestations of disease, and therefore of 111
Intent and to be banished. He hoped
that there was nothing preternatural
In disease, that its phenomena or
symptoms are marked by a purpose,
and that that purpose was beneficent.
One of Good Gifts.
Disease was one of the good gifts,
for its motive was benevolent and
protective. He could not express
that more precisely than by saying
that if it were not for "disease," the
human race would soon be extinct
The lecturer demonstrated his proposition by Instances. His first waa
tbat of a wound and supervening inflammation, which was a process of
cure to be imitated, rather than hindered. Peritonitis, which had always
been spoken of as the operating surgeon's deadliest enemy, was ia reality his best friend. The general mortality of the common disease known
as appendicitis was low. This fortunate circumstance was due-to peritonitis, for without that much-abused
ally every example of the disorder
would be fata). Another instance
given was that of tho common cold,
which was, no doubt, a so-called bacterial disease. According to popular
medicine, the phenomena constituting
the disease were purposeless, profitless, and wantonly distressful, bo that
the victim demanded from the physician a means for stamping the trouble
out. These symptoms, however, were bt
the main the manifestations of a process of cure and were so far benevolent that without them a common cold
might be a fatal malady. The catarrh,
the persistent sneezing, were practical
means of dislodging the bacteria from
the nasal passages, while the coagh
removed them from the windpipe.
The lecturer described the symptoai
of malaria and bubonic plague, both ef
bacterial origin, and also discussed the
question of immunity, and said that
the success of the serum treatment
of diphtheria was now beyond all
question. The whole of the' manifestations of tuberculosis were likewise expressions of an unflagging effort on
tbe part of the body to oppose the
progress of an invading bacterium.
There were, unfortunately, a large
series of disorders whose secrets had
not yet been fathomed. If It were
claimed tbat they afforded exceptions
to the theory advanced, he was content to wait until the exact nature of
those affections were made manifest.
One could not fall, however, to be met
with the assertions that at least the
machinations of cancer had nothing
in them that was good. To that he had
at present no answer. What constituted malignant disease was known to no
man, and there was little profit In
being dogmatic about the unknown.
It would seem that cancer reproduced under inopportune circumstances the type of exuberant growth which
was normal and opportune when the
structures of the body were being
formed, that lt was a strange resuscitation in the declining body of a process which was normal in the young.
What was the purpose of this out-of-
place activity? No one could tell ln
the absence of any knowledge. It waa
ln conformity with custom to consider
lt to be malign ln intention. If he were
compelled to add to the 1st of pure surmises as to the possible lines on whleh
a remedy for cancer might be expected,
he would point out that during ths
period of development in childhood,
there were certain glands ln an active
state, which would appear ln some
way to control, limit, and modify a
process of production which might
without such control run riot

A British warship which has had a
long career will be retired next year.
She was laid down at the Chatham
dockyard ln 1(02 and waa launched later as a three-decker, carrying ninety-
eight guns. She was one of the North

Duke of Clarence (afterward William

United    Empire    Loyalist    Association
AsX. For Monumental  Recognition
of Macdenell and Tecumseh.
To the OntHi'lo Government the
United Empire Loyalist Association
commends the patriotic duty of rendering provincial honors to the memory
of Macdonell and of Tecumseh, heroes
of the War of 1812. In resolutions
adopted on the 93rd anniversary of
the Battle of Queenston Heights, the
association rehearses from the public
chronicles the services of these two
defenders of Upper Canada, and calls
upon the Government to raise fitting
monuments to them. It ls a reproach
to the province that after the lapse of
almost a century lt has to be reminded
that this offlce of gratitude has yet to
be performed. Inscriptions ln brass or
marble are not required to make the
fame of the young Attorney-General of
Upper Canada or the great Shawneo
chief enduring. The names of both are
fixed lmperishably ln our history. But
the more that great men and great
deeds Impress themselves upon the
country's annals, the more binding is
the obligation upon the state to show
suitable tokens that it holds them ln
honored remembrance. To do so is
agreeable both to the sentiment of patriotism nnd to the dictates of sound
policy. Rear memorials to the men who
fell fighting for their country, and the
youth of the land will be^more likely
to emulate their vltrue.
Liout.-Col. Macdonell.
"  Lieut.-Col. Macdonell was of the famous   Glengarry   family  of his  name,
which has given so many of Its members   to  the   service  of   the    country.
Though only 25 years of age when the I
war broke out, he was then Attorney- I
General of Upper Canada, holding his j
seat ln the House as member for Glen- i
garry.    He was selected by Brock as |
provincial   aide-de-camp.    Before   going Into  the action   in  which he  lost
his life at Queenston Heights Lieut.-
Col. Macdonell made his will ln favor
of his god-child.    Mr. John A.  Macdonell, of Alexandria, has the gold medal sent  by   King  George   III. to commemorate  the  capture  of Detroit.    It
was by Lleut.-Col. Macdonell and Capt.
Clegg that  Brock's  demand    for    the
surrender of Detroit was borne to Gen.
Hull.    Hull refused to see the officers,
but after the attack was begun    he
sent a flag of truce and an offer to
yield.   Macdonell and Clegg went back
to Fort Detroit with Hull's messenger,
and there Macdonell drew up the articles of capitulation.
Queenston Heights.
Richardson who himself fought ln
the war and ls Its historian, renders
one tribute to the gallantry of Macdonell. Gen. Robinson's recently-Issued
"Life of Sir John Beverley Robinson"
contains an account of the engagement
at Queenston Heights, which Sir John
who took part In that fight, himself
wrote.    It contains this passage:
"Lleut.-Col. Macdonell' was mounted
and animating his men tp charge.
• • * The enemy were Just ln front,
covered by bushes and logs. They
were In no kind of order, and were
three or four hundred In number. They
perceived us forming, and at about
thirty yards distance flred. Lleut.-Col.
Macdonell, who was on the left of our
party, calling upon us to advance, received a shot in his body and fell. His
horse was at the same Instant killed.
Capt. Williams, who was at the other
extremity of our little band, fell the
next moment,- apparently dead. The
remainder of our men advanced a few
paces, discharged their pieces, and
then retired down the mountain. Lieut.
McLean was wounded In the thigh.
Capt. Cameron, ln his attempt to save
Col. Macdonell. was exposed to a
shower of musketry, but most miraculously escaped. He succeeded In carrying off his friend."
He lies by the side of his brave leader under the Brock monument.
Of Tecumseh's exploits against tha
troops of the United States, of his assistance to Proctor at Detroit, of his
differences with that general, and of
his death at Moravlantown, lt ls unnecessary to remind readers of Canadian history. He was the greatest ot
the red men who ever came ln contact with the white race. Loyalty to
his people and his statesmanlike
scheme for uniting and preserving
them and securing a territorial Independence for them brought him Into
collision with the United States, and
Anally Into alliance with King George.
Richardson has this to say of him:
"Ever merciful and magnanimous as
he was ardent and courageous, the
voice of the supplicant seldom reached
him In vain; and although war was his
Idol, the element in which he lived, his
heart was formed to glow with all the
nobler and more generous Impulses of
the warrior; nor was his high character less esteemed by ourselves than
reverenced by the various tribes over
which, ln his quality of brother to the
Prophet, he Invariably presided. In
any other country and governing
any other men, Tecumseh would have
been a hero; at the head of this uncivilized and untractable people he
was a savage; but such a savage as
civilization might not blush to acknowledge for his child."
In Osgoode Hall, Toronto, there is a
brass tablet to the m.imory of Lieut -
Col. Macdonell. Brass tablets would
scarcely be adequate memorials to such
men by a province like Ontario. Something more conspicuous that will attract the notice of all who resort to
the historic scenes on which Macdonell and Tecumseh acted is required.
One Notable For Ita Wood, the Other
Far Ita Brilliancy of Coloring.
The great oak family might be divided Into two classes—those tbat ripen
their acorns ln one season, sucb as the
white, post and mossy cup oaks, and
those which require two full years,
such as the red, scarlet and black oaks.
To the first class belong the chestnut
oak and the live oak of the south. This
latter tree for generations played an
Important part In shipbuilding, but has
now been superseded by Iron and steel.
The leaf, which Is an evergreen, Is en
tirely without Indentations and ls thick
and leathery. The wood ls very heavy
and stroug, has a beautiful grain and
Is susceptible of taking a high polish.
At one time tbls wood was so valuable
that our government paid $200,000 for
large tracts of lnnd In tbe south, that
our navy might be sure of a supply of
live oak timber.
To the second class of oaks we are
largely Indebted for the gorgeous colors of our autumn leaves. The red,
scarlet and pin oaks, with their brilliant reds, Bcniiets and browns, are
close competitors with the mnple In
giving our American landscapes tbe
most wonderful autumn colorings .to be
found anywhere ln the world. These
three trees have leaves which at first
glance ere quite slmllnr, but by careful examination may always be distinguished.—St Nicholas.

We are sometimes asked why Dr
Chase's Nerve Food Is so successful
in curing the ailments peculiar te
women, and this is the explanation:
The feminine organism ls a legular
network of "nerves, and consequently
requires an enormous quantity of rich
nourishing blood.
At the critical times such as the
dawu of womanhood, the child-bearing and nursing age and the change
of life, nerve force ls consumed at a
tremendous rate.
The blood is drawn awnv from
other parts of the body, and the result
ls neuralgic pains and aches, failure
of the digestive system, and a rundown condition of the body generally.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food supplies exactly what ls most needed at these
times—the very elements from which
rich blood and vital nerve force are

The report of the Central Prison
Night School has been made for the

the warden and prison officials for their
usual and uniform courtesy and cooperation. He was especially indebted
to Guard Webb for valuable assistance
and interest.
During the school year Just completed no changes in particular have been
made in the method of work. The general attendance has been composed
largely of the most Illiterate class, and
the progress made by those in the various classes has been quite satisfactory.
The attendance at the sessions has
been very regular throughout the
year, the average being seventy. The
total number registered was one hundred and twenty-six. Of this number
twenty-eight were totally Ignorant as
regards the alphabet and numbers, the
remainder being scarcely able to read
or write their own names.
Forty per cent, of those ln attendance were under twenty years of age,
the others being chiefly between twenty and thirty. The youngest was sixteen years old, and the oldest man
registered was sixty-three. The latter
could neither read nor write when he
came to us, and before his term was
completed he could conduct his own
correspondence with his friends at

writing, arithmetic, spelling, and the

men, as It Is a privilege for them to
be allowed to attend school. The following remark made by a man on his

of this paragraph.—"ff I had the money

Corsets Must Fit The Figure.
This popularity of gowns that have
an unbroken line from the middle of
the body down, whether fitted, as in
the princess or semi-fitted, as in the
Empire, necessitates a careful selection of underwear. Since gowns of
the cut described must not wrinkle at
the waist, the corset must be of an
exceptionally god make and must fit
to the figure, since so much depends
upon it. The new corsets also fit
well over the hips, to carry ore in a
graceful line the fitted lengths of a
princess gown. Indeed, these gowns
have worked a good many changes in
corsets, such as a giving way of the
straight front lines and a lengthening
of the corset bciow the waist and raising of i! above. The comfortable ribbon girdle, whicll so many women
wear in place of corsets, cannot    be

In all the golden sunshine of the day,
No pleasant  word  I might be found
to say.
But since he could no longer come to
The world, love-smitten, dreaming at

Nor feel within his pulse the Springtide beat.
Nor love again, I gave for him instead
And poured upon his low, unconscious
The sacramental love that shrives the
And though I went my way with eye
lids wet
For grief of one whom I had never
Because his day so soon was finished
I lifted up my face to Heaven again
Believing human love was not in vain
But, moved and softened by the sud

Of friendship, I touched   the   larger
Of universal love, and understood
The passion of our common brotherhood'.

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 llie survival of the fittest applies
to. business principles as well as it
does to other walks of life, the bet-_
ter the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better ...the results.
Good results mean . good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.
