Continued from last week.
"Ah, j/bs,'TiiFt" f do not!'"" he said,
not in tho tone with which such compliments aro paid, but a little hoarsely, with a twitch of the thin lips,
a restless movement of the white
hands so near her gleaming shoulder,
"f never forget, never lose tho chance
of being near you, von know."
"Hush!" she whispered with her
voice of subtle music, "Vou must
listen to tho play—anil lot mo ilo
There was a pause, during wliich he
looked, not at the stage, but at her
—lookod with the passion smouldering in his eyes, beating in the sallow cheeks which had grown somewhat sunken, breathing from the set
llos-^and sho. leaning, hack and fee'-
lng nis gaze, seemed so serenely, exquisitely calm and emotionless that
one would have suid that no passion
could liavc [lower to touch her even
with the ends of its burning fingers.
But suddenly, though her eyes did
not move, her bosom rose and fell
quickly. She had heard a stop i« the
corridor—Vane entered the box.
She did not turn her head, but despite herself, her marvelous power of
self-control, the color dyed her face
and her eyes shone.
.luliun saw the momentary change,
the flash of emotion that betrayed
her, and his face went pallid, his lips
grew straight and thero flashed Into
his now sombre eyes a gleam of hate
—the hate which, joined with jeal-
"ousy, is of all kinds tho most malignant, the most merciless.
Vane did not come forward, but
with a bow ond a smile, dropped into a chair behind tho curtain, so
that ho was unseen by Nina, jwhose
eyes wire still turned to the Hoauti
ful woman, now languidly fanning
herself, with a new touch of color in
her face, a new light in her eyes.
So they sat, in silence now, for
Vane was one of those persons who
oddly enough, in these days' when
most well-bred people appear td' regard the theatre ns a place for-conversation; did not talk whilo the curtain was up. He leant back nnd
looked on at the play with at first
an absent air, but presently an interest awakened in spite of hlmftolf.
She • listened—to Vane's rcgulnr
breathing; and Julian sat with his
arms -folded, his lids lowered, his
eyes fixed on the hem 0f the dress-, of
the woman he hnd grown to lov
with ;a passion that absorbed, devoured him, and left him no rest ftir
Ibbdy or soul. And nothing about him
moved but the tick, tick of the nerve
fn his hollow check.
As the play drew to an end the interest, the laughter of the audience
Increased, ahd when*-the curtain fell
there was one of thoso outbursts of
applause which managers, actors, authors, Iovo to hear.
"The Betrothed" was a genuine,
unmistakable success.
The applause seemed to deafen Nina. She watched tho actors and actresses cross beforo tho curtain, and
she longed to clap her hands—for,
oh, how grateful she was to them!
—but she felt incapable of movement.
Her heart beat so wildly that she
did not at first hear the cries of
"Author! Author! Author!" but as
they grow louder and moro insistent
she began to tremble, and, clutching
her opera-cloak round her, she roso
and fled; so that when Mr. Harcourt
'came forward, w,itli his hand on his
heart, and announced that tho author was not in the theatre, he. marvelous to relate, spoke the truth.
Vane moved forward and stood by
Judith's chair.
"A pretty play,"' he said, "and a
clever one. I am sorry I did not see
lt all."
She swept her magnificent dress
from the chair beside her, but he did
not accept the invitation. Ho glanced
wearily, listlessly, round the house,
then? ns if he remembered why ho
had come to the box, he said:
"Julian and I go down to Lesborough to-morrow. There is to be a
house party in a Week, as vou know.
May I ask Sir Chandos to bring
you? Lady Fanworthy plays chape-
rono. I hope you will come."
Her heart beat swiftly, but she
looked straight beforo her, so that
Julian, who was watching her from
behind with a feverish eagerness,
grow sick with suspense.
"Thanks, very much," she said at
last, with an instant lifting of her
eyes to Vane's fuce. "You know"—
in a lower voice, ono sehrcely above
a whisper—"that I should come!"
' _ am glad," he said, gravely.
Then ho looked at his watch.
"Are you going?" she asked in the
same tone.
"Yes, presently," he said, "flood-
night.   I will lind Sir Chandos."
Aftor he had gone she sat and
looked straight before hor. Julian
moved and she turned to him, her
eyes cold as ice, und glittering liko
the diamonds on her breast.
"Will you find my father and tell
him I am going on to the Vnn-
dalour's after the first act, ' Mr.
Julian rose and loft the box. But
ln the corridor he paused and pressed one burning white hand to his
lips aa lf to still the quiver of hate
and jealousy; then, with drooped lids
and face set like a mask, ho went on
hia .errand.
Nina could not go back to tho
theatre, and she paced up and down
the Strand, seeing nothing, hearing
nothing, with the applause still deafening hor, the liglits of the theatre
still blinding her.
Her play was a bucccss.   Oh,  how
happy,  how  glad  she must be!      A
success!     She  had     found  her    truo
work at lost—no,  so soon, so soonl
Tho gods had been good to her   beyond all measurement.   A success-
Then suddenly sho stopped and   an
inarticulate cry roso from her lips.
Judith!   The woman ho loved!
Back it all swopped on her, and hor
Joy turnod to misery.
She found her way to the stage-
door. Polly cnuio rushing out and
caught her by the arm.
"Decimal^ . sho gasped. "Decimal
What a success! (Ill, oh, oh! But
what Is tho matter?" sho broke off,
aghaBt nt the. white fnce, tho misery-
haunted eyes. "You look as if you'd
seen a ghost. You're not—ill?"
"No, no!"  said  poor Nina,    "It  is
—is cne suspense, tne excitement."*
Polly drew a breath of relief.
"I know.      Hero—a cab!      Get In!
Oh,   let us get homo!     Never   mind
the supper!    Let us get home!'*,
It was not a largo party at Lesborough, but it was a very pleasant
ono, und all were agreed that Vano
mude a splendid host. He did not
make tho mistake of attempting to
amuse his guests: nowadays wo refuse to bo amused and arc liest left
to ourselves; and what we liko is a
large house, run on tho lines of a
first-rate hotel, where wo can do as
we please—and have no bills to pay
at the finish.
Breakfusi at Lesborough was a
movable feast, so also was lunch,
and not .seldom the guests met together for tho li—it time in the day
at tho eight o'clock dinner; wliich
was a meal that met with tha up-
proval even of Sir Chandos drum,
who was somewhat exacting in the
matter of his food—and drink.
Most of the men wore out all dny
with their guns or their rods—there
are sea-trout in tho Lesway that
runs through the estate—and some of
the women joined them at lunch or
rode out with the tea-baskets. Vane
had his gun and his fishing-rod
standing each morning against tho
terrace ready for either sport, and
did not seem to care which it was;
indeed, he usually sat on the coping
with his pipe in his mouth while the
program was being settled, and took
up either weapon with, equal cheerfulness—and,  alas!   indifference.
The Letchfords, who were of course
of the parfy, discussed him in the
privacy of their own room.
"He seems very little better than
he was on the night we found him,"
Sir Charles remarked, regretfully.
"Whatever he had got on his mind is
there still. He's behaving like—liko
a brick and keeping everything goiug
here splendidly, but—"
"But he is not happy," finished
Lady Letchford. "He tries to hido
the trouble, whatever it is, and I
dare say most of the people hero
think him the happiest and most
fortunate of men; but you and I
know better, don't we, Charlie? And
there is someone else who knows it—
Lady Fanworthy."
"Ah, she always was a clever one!"
remarked Letchford.
"Yes; and she's fond of him," said
his wife. "I seo her looking at him
every now and then with a curious
and pained glance, as if she wondered what was tho matter, and wishing she could help him."
"So do I," said Letchford, with a
sigh. "I'm deuced fond of him,
"It is not difficult—to bo fond of
him, I mean," responded Lady
Blanche, comprehensively.
"Jolly good thing he's taken a
fancy to his cousin Julian fcJhoro.
flood-looking chap, isn't he, and
agreeable, too!"
Lady Letchford was silent for a
"Yes," she said. "He is good-
looking enough;  but—"
Sir Charles laughed and yawned;
he had been shooting nil day.
"But you don't cure for him eh?
Whut fancies you women 'get! 1
should have thought he would have
been just the sort of mun you would
have admired und liked: u follow who
sings like an opera chap and looks
like—like an Adonis, and always says
and does the right thing."
"Perfection, in short," said Lady
letchford. "But then we don't cure
for perfection in a man—that's why
1 like you, Charlie, 1 suppose—it's
pouching on our preserves, you see.

Most people realize that, lf they
could only avoid the sufferings of
Indigestion aud keep the bowels regular and active, life would have for
them much more of comfort and happiness. L
We believe that these results are
best accomplished by the use of Dr.
Chase's Kidney Liver Pills, and let us
tell you why:
It Is the liver which, by filtering
bile from the blood and passing it Into
the intestines, ensures good digestion
and the natural, healthful action of
the bowels. Keep the liver active,
and you are sure of the proper working of the digestive and excretory
Dr. Chases' Kldney-Llver Pills have
a direct and specific action on the
liver. By invigorating this great filtering organ they guarantee the collection of bile from the  blood, where
it is poison, and the passing of it to
the Intestines, where it is necessary
for digestion and a proper action of
the bowels.
It Is not as a mere relief from Indigestion and constipation that Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills are recommended, but as a thorough and lasting
cure. Put them to the test. The
dose is one pill at bedtime as often as
ls necessary to keep the bowels regular.
Mr. Duncan McPherson, Content,
Alberta, writes:—"I was for many
years troubled with indigest'ion and
headache and derived no benefit from
the many remedies I used. A friend
advised the use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and after taking four
.boxes the result Is that 1 am once
more in the full enjoyment of the
blessings of good health.

OrlKlii of Italics.
Italic letters were first used about the
year 1500 by Aldus ManutltlB, a Venetian printer. He observed the many
inconveniences resulting from the vast
number of abbreviations which were
then so frequent among the prlnters
that a book was difficult to understand.
A treatise was actually written on the
art of reading a printed book and thus
addressed to the learned. By Introducing the Italic letter he contrived an expedient by which these abbreviations
might be entirely got rid of and yet
books suffer litUe increase ln bulk. He
dedicated his Invention to the Italian
states; hence the name. It bas also
been distinguished by the name of the
Inventor and called the Aldlne. The
flrst book printed ln Italics was an edition of "Virgil" printed at Venice bj
Aldus In 1501.

A Scheme and a Luncheon.
One of Balzac's wild schemes was a
plan to combine Paris theaters. One
morning In September, 1839—an early
day to talk of monopoly—ten literary
friends of the great novelist met by invitation at his bouse. Before luncheon
Balzac told them of his scheme. His
Idea was to form a trust to buy up all
the theaters as a sequel to a smaller
preliminary trust for the supply of
plays to every theater In Paris. The
ten guests were to supply them. He
estimated the profits of the first year at
£120,000, and each yejir would, ho
thought, bring In more money. He expounded his scheme at length for over
an hour, aud finally one of tbe guests
suggested lhat he might go on at table. The novelist started. "I forgot
all about ordering anything to eat!" he
cried, and late ln the afternoon the
members of the shadowy trust made a
shadowy meal of bread and cheese aud
sour wine in a small country restaurant
He Wore the Robe.
A story is told of the late Dr. Peddle,
a Scotch minister, to whom his congregation had presented a pulpit robe. He
had never worn a robe, and, after acknowledging tbe gift, he said he would
wait In the vestry five minutes after
service to hear any objectors to the Innovation, Nobody appeared but one
old lady, wbo, ou being asked what
her objections were, answered thnt she
had read the epistles of St. Paul and
could not find any reference to the
apostle wearing a gown. "What epistle did you read?" asked the doctor.
"From Romans to Hebrews," answered the old ludy. "Well, Janet," said
her minister, "I huve read from Romans to Hebrew also, and I could
never flud nny reference to the apostl*
wearlug the breeks. What would you
think If you suw uie going Into tho
pulpit without breeks?" Needless to
say, the old lady departed satisfied
wilh the explanation.
Life's HlRlict  Achievement.
It hns been said that success consists
In getting that at which one alms, and
being happy ln lt. Each one should
have an Ideal of wbat Is to be the expression of his or her life. If this ls attained ln some degree such a life may
be called successful, nenee, the successful man or woman ls the one who
has succeeded fairly well ln shaping
the actual life ln accordance with the
ideals of life. This requires a strength
and persistence thnt call for continual
struggle. It forms the highest achievement of life. Bulwer well says that the
man who succeeds nbove his fellows ls
the one who early tn life clearly discerns bis object and toward that object habitually directs his powers.—

Among the many odd nooks and corners and crannies of tbe mild Emerald
Isle Is Carrlck-a-rede, ou the Great

Isolated rock, separated from the mainland by a chasm sixty feet wide and
more tban eighty feet deep, and lt is
at this place that the salmon nre Intercepted In their retreat to tbe rivers. A
rude bridge of ropes ls thrown across,
which remains during the fishing season, and this bridge, which is protected
by a single rope rail, swings about In
fhe most uncomfortable manner, often
rendering lt a dangerous feat In stormy
weather save to the natives, who cross
lt with the utmost Indifference. The
name is derived from "-Carrig-a-ram-

of the intercepting of the salmon. Near

bones of horse, ox, deer, sheep, goat,

Lies Through the Rich, Red Blood Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills Actually
Common pills purge the bowels. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills mako new, rich
blood. Purging pills gallop tlirough
the bowels—tearing the tissues, irritating the organs and weakening the
whole system. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills do not purge at all. The..'re
tonic pills, soothing pills, strengthening pills, blood building pills. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills actually make
new blood. That is why they are the
only scientific cure for -all blood diseases. That is why they cure headaches and backaches, kidney troubles,
indigestion, neuralgia, rheumatism,
heart troubles, and the special ailments of growing girls and mature
women. Purging pills act only on the
symptoms of disease; Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills go straight to the root ot
tho trouble in the blood—and cure.
Mr. John Burke, Elmdale, P.F.I.,
says: "I think Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills the best medicine in the world.
I had an attack of pneumonia which
wns followed by extreme nervousness
and rheumatism. I tried some of~our
best doctors but got nothing to help
me until I began taking Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. After taking tho pills some
weeks I could actually feel the new
blood they were making coursing
my veins and in the course of a few
weeks more I was completely restored
to health." Remember that it is only
Dr. Williams Pink Pills that can make
this new, rich, health-giving blood.

Journalism Is unique among all the
professions for the rapidity with
- which reputations are made, and substantial recognition bestowed on the
brilliant. It ls the profession lu
which natural aptitudes count for as
much, and more, as training. In law,
or medicine, or divinity—or Indeed,
any other business or profession-
years of application and study are
necessary to fit any man for Its exercise. And, after an arts course at a
university, and a three or four years'
additional course at a medical college, a law school, or a theological
seminary, it often takes mauy other
weary years of waiting before ability
Is recognized, a reputation firmly established, and the material rewards
accruing therefrom are reached. For
the many, this costly period of preparation Is the precursor of a very
moderate Income. The same ability
devoted to other directions would often prove a better financial investment.
Success ln newspaper work, on the
other hand, depends more on a native
aptitude and Insight than on training
—though, of course, training is nec-
,-Essary to success in this, as In sll 'other successful activities. But no amount of training can supersede aptitude. Newspaper success depends on
brains, ability and brilliancy. These
given, tho training is not unnecessary,
but unconscious. An ounce of tactful .common sense ls worth us much
to the young beginner as a ton of
"Thou shalts" and "Thou shalt nots."
Tact and common sense won't do much
to help a divinity student to grind up
exercises, or a law student to absorb
Jurisprudence, or a medical student
to pass In anatomy—that must be a-
chleved by dogged "plugging" and
hard work—but ln the world of newspapers lt Is the supreme equipment,
and the "cub"' reporter may have,
while the chief lacks it. If the "cub"
reporter has these qualities, with a
"nose for news", a good vocabulary,
some touch of Imagination ,and a
pleasing address and presence, he has
a first rate equipment for starting Into journalism, and having only the
most essential of these, it Is likely
that in good time all these other
things shall be added unto him. If a
newcomer possess this natural equipment, the newspaper beckons him,
and his promotion will be sure. In a
few weeks or months he will be tackling Important assignments, be bearing heavy responsibilities, the efficient discharge of which will only ensure him harder work, but Increased
reward. Trained intelligence is the
outstanding requirement of the newspaper man, and the Intelligence given
the training comes of itself.
Examples of the rapidity with
which a youth with the necessary aptitudes and qualifications will forge
to the front of the newpaper profession will readily occur to everyone
with any knowledge of or experience
therein. Cases have beeu known In
which a young fellow, within five
years of the time he set his foot on
the lowest rung of the ladder, has
climbed clear to the top, and attained
the high position and heavy responsibility of a managing editorship on a
big city paper. Such rapid advancement is of course rare, and are perhaps not to be found In Western Canada. But, there are nevertheless Instances of phenomenally -rapid promotions due to conspicuous talents,
and one of these ls undoubtedly that
of Mr. William Garland Poster, until
recently the managing editor of the
Winnipeg Telegram, and now the editor of the Portage la Prairie News.
Mr. Foster had no hereditary predilections towards newspaper life or
work. His boyhood career differed
no whit from that of thousands of
other young Canadians. He was born
on a farm at Bell's corners, and In
hie early years went with other
country lads of tho district to the
rural sohqols, of Carleton county, and
later to the Ottawa collegiate Institute. Though both his parents were
Canadian  born,  they came of North
of Ireland stock, and from them Mr.
Foster Inherited the    business    hard-
headedness and shrewdness, and also
the  quick  resourcefulness and saving
sense of humor characteristic of the
Ulster Irish.    On   leaving  school   Mr.
Foster  entered   the   lumber   business
in Ottawa, and stayed therein for two
years,  until    1896.      But    lumbering
was not his sphere.   In that year he
decided to come west,  and spent until   December,   1897,    at   Portage   la
Prairie, the town In which he Is now
managing editor.   He  then returned
east,  and receiving an. offer to Join
the staff of the Ottawa Free Press as
a reporter, he accepted It, and at once
found  himself in an  environment  to
his entire liking.    He had orientated
himself, snd    found    a   vocation    ln
whicll his natural aptitudes would re
celve room for freest play and expansion. After three years' work on the
Free Press, he again came west, this
time to accept a position on the Winnipeg Telegram, and on this paper he
made a brilliant record, filling In sue
cession almost   every    position   from
fire and police reporter up to that of
managing editor.     He was 'by turns-
financial    reporter,    dramatic    critic,
Bpecial  feature writer, telegraph and

r.    Mr.   Foster has a  natural Inclin
ntion  for politics.      It has sometimes
een  said that he is a Conservative
by religion—at any rate his belief in
he principles and "the   policy  of  ihi
"onservative    party    ls    as firm and
eep-seated as any belief can possibly
e.    When  such  devotion  to A cause
or party Is coupled, as in Mr. Foster's
case,    with    untiring     ndusrrv     nii'l
much more than average ability, it Is
mall  surprise   that   speedy   recognition came from the heads of the party  that  profited by his  services.   01
all the journalists   whose   pens   and
rains are    supporting    the    present
ocal    government   of Manitoba, it is
ery questionable If there Is one wltb
uch claims to party gratitude as Mr.
oster can advance, were he one ol
hat numerous class that   give    ser
•ice in  direct  proportion to benefits
eceived.   But  Mr.  Foster  Is   neithei
time,    nor a place-server, and the
cknowledged service to the party he
upports has  been the result of per
onal  conviction.
During   his   stay  ln   Winnipeg Mr.
oster was one of the moving spirits
f   the   Young    Men's    Conservative
lub, ln which institution he has held
n succession almost every office in its
ift.   He has proved himself, too, an
rganizer of more than average ability, his   influence    in    enlisting   the
young men to the support of the Conservative party having a marked and
acknowledged effect In the success of
the present provincial government In
he three Winnipeg constituencies.
Personally, Mr. Foster Is the Incarnation of diffidence and modesty
He has none of the arts of the dem-
gogue. Quiet efficiency and effec
iveness are the keynotes of his character. He is as popular as he Is un
assuming, and has troops of friends,
both without and within the circle ol
his political affiliations. On his
leaving Winnipeg at the beginning of
the present year, he received many
testimonials of respect and esteem
from his fellow-workers on the Tele
gram and the various political insti
tutions with which he was connected.
H'is last fortnight in the city was a
nightly repetition of complimentary
anquets and presentations.
The beginning of 190G saw Mr. Fos
er assume the editorship of the Re
lew, the oldest established Portage
a Prairie newspaper, and his return
o the town In which he flrst located
in the west. Thrf Review is one ol
he oldest newspapers in Manitoba,
though for the past few years it has
been kuown as' the News. The
transfer of Mr. Foster to the papei
will mark a new era In Its history
heing but one of the signs that tht
whole Institution has undergone a
complete reorganization. It is the
intention of the new management to
convert the Review, which is now 0
semi-weekly, into a daily, and as soon
as the machinery now on order Is
Installed, the change will be made.
Associated with Mr. Foster In the
control of the Review, as business
manager, is Mr. B. L, Burns, one ol
the founders of the Portage la Prairie
Graphic. Some two and a half years
ago Mr. Burns and his partner, Mr. J.
McPherson, disposed of the Graph
ic, and since that time has been en
gaged in other pursuits. Portagers
will welcome him hack to newspaper
dom, and Manitoba journalism can
not but be benefitted by the return

such ability as his new associate ed

Connection With Past Canada tn Chosen Name ef Terminus.
What had the dashing young cavalry
leader of the cavaliers nearly three
hundred years ago to do with Canada?
Prince Rupert was really the first British Canadian business magnate. He
was a promoter of the Hudson Bay Co.,
and Its first governor, ln 1670. In that
year Charles II. granted a charter to
the prince and seventeen other noblemen and gentlemen, Incorporating them
as "The Governor and Company of Adventurers of England, trading Into
Hudson Bay," and securing to them
"the sole trade and commerce of all
those seas and straits, bays, rivers,
lakes, creeks and sounds ln whatever
latitude they shall be, that lie within
the entrance to the straits commonly
called Hudson Straits, together with
all the lands and territories upon the
countries, coasts and confines ot the
seas, bays, etc., aforesaid, that were
not already actually possessed by or
granted to any of our subjects or possessed by the subjects of any other
Christian prince or state." The first
settlements of the country thus granted, which was to be known as Rupert's
Land were made on James Bay and at
Churchill and Hoyle's River.
Prince Rupert was born In 1619, the
bou of Frederick V., elector-palatine
arid Elizabeth, eldest daughter of James
I. of England. He was a man of Impetuous bravery, but at the same time
showed lack of caution. When only 13
years old he took part ln the siege of
Rhelmberg, and at the age of 18 commanded a regiment of cavalry ln active service. At the beginning of the
civil war ln England he was placed at
the head of a regiment of horse and
took part in several battles. Notwithstanding a serious error at Marston
Moor, he was soon appointed commander of all the royal troops. After
the defeat of Naseby, on June 14, 1645,
he retired to Bristol, but surrendered
that city on Aug. 22. The King thereupon deprived hlpi of his commission.
In 1648 he wss, for want of any competent man, appointed to command the
fleet. He was blockaded by Blake ln
Klnsale Harbor, and ln October, l<6-t9,
forced his way out and ste, 3d for
Lisbon. Blake pursued him and he waa
only saved by assistance from the King
of Portugal. He subsequently escaped
to the West Indies, but after the res-"
toration of Charles II. he was made a
privy councillor, and served under the
Duke of York against the Dutch. He
was afterwards governor of Windsor
Casftle, where, during the last nine
years of his life h« devoted himself to
scientific and artistic pursuits. He
died Nov. 29, 1682. ,
Paper Read by Mr. R. M. Stewart Before Astronomical Society.
At a meeting of the Toronto Astronomical Society recently the paper for
the evening was "The Time Service of
the Dominion Observatory at Ottawa,"
by Mr. R. Meldrum Stewart, M. A., who
ls ln charge of the service. Everyone,
from the railway management to the
man on tha street, ultimately dependent
on some observatory clock. The method
of determining the time from the stars
was explained and aleo the essentials
of a good clock. The ultimate standard
at the Observatory ls one made by
RIefler, of Munich. It has a nickel-steel
pendulum, Is sealed up in a glass case
fastened to a pillar on Its own pier In
a basement room, automatically regulating Its temperature, and lt winds Itself up electrically every half minute.
It keeps time with the stars, and ls
called a sidereal clock. The chlaf meantime clock, which keeps ordinary timo,
was also made by Riefler, and li mounted like the other. Its time ls checked
dally by comparison with the sidereal
olook. By electrloal means this clock
controls a clock ln each of the Government buildings, and these again actuate
dials placed ln each of the rooms. Four
Insulated wires run. from the Observatory to the city for this purpose. At
present there are 42 dials ln the Parliament building, 60 ln the West Block
and 48 ln the Langevln Block. These
with a few others make up a total of
214 dials.
Since the first of December last a
tlmeball has been dropped every noon
on Parliament Hill, controlled automatically from the Observatory, and since
the New Year the time has been given
daily to the O. N. W. Telegraph Co.
The entire service la controlled from
the Observatory. It ls kept In a high
state of efficiency.

Some years ago a husband and wife

The wife decided to continue business as an exhibitor at the old addreBJ,

Got Their Share.
An Interesting and amusing story Is
told of the late President Kruger. It
seems that some years ago he presented, on behalf of the Transvaal Republic, a piece of land amounting to an
erf for the building of a Dutch Reformed Church. Some time afterwards
he was approached by an influential
Jew, who tendered a similar reqi^t
on behalf of the Jewish congregation.
The President-promised to consider the
request, and soon afterwards announced that he had granted it. A little
while later, however, he was waited
on by a Jewish friend, who complained that the piece of land they had' received waa only half the' size ol
that given for the Dutch Reformed
Church. "Well," retorted Kruger.

Another Tradition Gone.
The quiet manner In which tho Mastership of tho Buckhoiinds has faded
out of the list of British Ministerial
appointments would have considerably
surprised those who a score of years
ago commenced to agitate against Its
retention, says The Westminster Ga-
zotte. Yot the political antiquary cannot but heavo a sigh ns ho thus sees
passing from sight an office which ns
long ngo as the reign of Henry VI. wns
described Iri a petition to the King by
Its then holder ns "of olde tyme ordey-
ned for tho pleaslr nnd dlsporte of your
noble progenltoiiis and their succes-
sours." It would appear from the claim
of this 'William Brocas, Squycr, Mals-
ter of your Highnesses Bukhounds,"
that the position hnd come to be regarded ns hereditary, "forasmuche
that ho holdlth of you, and all his Aun-
ccstres of tyme that no mynde Is to
have holden of your noble progenl-
tours, the Menolr of Lltyll Wei don In
the Cotinte of Northton, by Grnunte

Malster of yonr Bukhounds, and to
kepo xxllll rennylug houndes and vi
Krehoiindcs, and to fynde a yoman
Vcantrcr and two yomen Berners."
But this "mekn Bcsocher" complained
thnt the Sheriffs of Surrey and Sussex
had suddenly ceased to pny the annual
grant under the Privy Seal for tho keep
of the hounds which, had been dono
from tho timo of Kdward III.; nnd he
sought redress from King and Parliament, which was promptly accorded.
At what period this hereditary offlce

Tales   of   Vessels   that   Never Reach
Their Destination.
Thore are few things which are so
full of mystery or wliich make such a
powerful appeal to the imagination as
the stories of ships that sail gallantly
out to sea and of which nothing is ever
heard or seen after their masts have
dipped below the horizon. At present
the papers are full of the records of
these marine tragedies. To-day it is
the Claverdale, which left Hong Kong
ioj: Vladivostock, and of which no trace
has heeen found ; yesterday it was the
Royalist, which cleared from Singapore
to Hong Kong and never reached her
destination; the day before it was the
Iduin, from Norway, which vanished
from human view, and so on, through
and disappeared.
What are the secrets of these mysterious vanishings of stately ships with
their crews and cargoes? In nineteen
cases out of twenty the secrets lio with
tho ships many fathoms deep, and will,
perhaps, never come to light. To this
day no one knows what became of tin
City of Glasgow, which set her sails
so gallantly in the Mersey half a century ago, bound for Philadelphia, noi
nas slie seen again after the hills ol
Wales were lost to view.
The Bervie Castle left England some
years ago on a long voyage to Aus
tralia. She should have mado a final
call at Plymouth, but she nover cann

she dropped down the channel, lt wui
on May 10, 185-1, that the Lady Nugent spread her sails at Madras with
307 of the Madras Light Infantry alio
othor passengers aboard. Her destination was Rangoon, but half a century
has gone and neither Rangoon nor any
other port has sighted her.
Nearly two years later the Collins
liner Pacific dropped down the Mersey
with 180 souls aboard. She was accounted one of the stoutest and swiftest vessels of her time, and so, no
doubt, she was. But she went the way
the City of Glasgow had gone a couple
of years earlier, and for forty-nine
years lias been lying at the bottom ol
the sea, but where none mny know
until all secrets nre revealed. The
trading vessel Atlanta started a quarter of a century ago for a short cruise
in Bermudan waters, and from that
day to this no one knows what became
of her and the 250 souls she carried.
On January 20, 1870, the City oi
Boston sailed from Halifax for England with 191 souls on hoard. She was
an Indian liner, a fine ship, splendidly equipped and handled, but she, too.
was destined to vanish from the face
of the waters.'
The victim of another ocean mystery
was expected at Liverpool in March,
1881. March passed, and Liverpool
saw nothing of her. The long delay
in her arrival caused great anxiety,
and tho wildest rumors bogan to be
circulated. On April 13 news came
that her engines and rudder had been
disabled in heavy weather and that
she had put into Madeira for repairs.
Thore naturally followed a reaction
from glooomy forebodings to transports
of joy. The vessel was expected at
Liverpool and her arrival was awaited
by hundreds of people who had friends
aboard, but she never came, and it
was found that the story of her arrival at Madeira- was a heartless hoax.
All tho time tho ill-fated.vessel was at
the bottom of the sea.
On November 30, 1888, a large vessel
was seen from the beach at Deal, sailing toward the Goodwin Sands. She
wns a fair picture to look on as she
moved ovor the waters with her stately spread of sails. But as the eyes of
the watchers followed her sho was
view. What caused this tragically
sudden disappearance of a stately-
ship ? That is anothor of the countless socrets which the ocean has in its
jealous keeping.

Hanging By A Mere Hair.
Talking of the wit of the Princess
Pauline Mettermch, once the chief ornament of the third Napoleon's court,
the Alarq ise de Fontenoy writes:
As an instance I may recall her delicate retort to old Mrs. John Jay's
son-in-law, General Von Schweidnitz,
when he was Ambassador to the Austrian Court. One night, when seated
next to him at dinner, she vexed the
general by her somewhat unkind comparison between French and German
notions with regard to wit. "There is
nothing," sho declared "that the
French are not able to turn into
some  graceful  witticism."
"Take this, Princess," exclaimed the
general, handing her a single white
hair from his head; "I defy you to
get your French friends to make any
witty contrivance out of this."
Princess Metternich took the hair,
and on the following day sent it off
to Bouclieron, tne famous jeweller in
Paris, with au explanatory note.
Three-weeeks later she invited the
general to dinner, and he found on
liis plate a" tiny velvet box. On opening it Ilo found a pendant formed by
tho jewelled representation of the
Prussian eagle, and between its talons
was the single hair handed by the
perman Ambassador to the Prince—.
fVt eacli end of it was suspended a tiny
plaque in enamel with the word
"Alsace" on one and "Lorraine" on
the otlier. Attached to tho eagle's
beak was a scroll hearing in diamonds
the words, "Vous ne les tenez que par
un cheven" ("you hold them by only
a hair").
It retains old and Makes New
Friends.—Time was when Dr. Thomas' Eclectrlc Oil had but a small field
of distribution, hut now Its territory
is widespread. Those who first recognized its curative qualities still
value it as a specific, and while it retains its old friends It is ever making
new. lt ls certain that whoever once
uses it will not be without it.
Paper Handkerchiefs.
New York.—Several leading London
physicians are now advocating the use
of a handkerchief made of paper. This
is not only witn the idea ot prove,..-
ing the spread of consumption, but a
myriad ot other discuses. It is argued
that a linen handkerchief which is
carried iu the pocket and becomes
heated, is necessarily a disseminator
of undesirable genus and witn tho aid
of laundries, a constant circulation of
deadly organisms is kept up.
It is customary in many English
sanitariums to provide the patients
with paper handkerchiefs, which, after
use, are placed iu receptacles where
they are immediately cremated. Most
of the handkerchiefs used iu" these sanitariums are of Jupanese inako~as the
English mako has not como into favoi
on account of their being much harder
in texture than the Japanese.
"A Grand Medicine" is the encomium often passed on Bickle's Anti-
Consumptive Syrup, and when the results from its use are considered, as
borne out by many persons who have
employed It in stopping coughs and
eradicating colds, it Ib more than
grand. Kept lu the house It is always
at hand and it hns no equal as a ready
remedy. If you have not tried it, do
so at once.
How a Leak was Stopped.
To stop a leak in a steamer which
struck a rock in the Straits of Magel-
len recourse was had to timber, ballust
rock and Portland cement, which
formed so effective n cork that the
vessel was enabled to proceed on hei
voyage, and was finally taken to New-
Port News for repairs, It was lound
that the tilling was so solid that with
Drdinary appliances somo six weeks
would have been consumed in chopping it out. To overcome this ditiiunity smull charges of dynamite were
usod, and after three days of blasting,
without injury to tlio vessel or the
dock, the mass of material was so
completely loosened up as to permit
of being removed.

Sunlight Soap is better than other soaps,
but is best when used in the Sunlight way.
To appreciate the simplicity and ease of
washing with Sunlight Soap in the Sunlight
way you should follow directions.
After rubbing on the soap, roll up each
piece, immerse in the water, and go away.
Sunlight Soap
will do its work in thirty to sixty minutes.
Your clothes will be cleaner and whiter than if washed
in the old-fashioned way with boiler and hard rubbing.
Equally good with h§rd or soft water.
