"How can that be?" asked Mnry In
comical tribulation, "is not this n

Is lt not a mail's hat? They are all for
a mun. Then why do I not look like
one, I nsk? Tell me what ls wrong.
Ob, I thought I looked Just like a man.
I thought the disguise was perfect."
"Well," returned Brandon, "If you
will permit me to sjiy so, you aro entirely too symmetrical nnd shapely
ev'er to pass for n mnn."
The flaming color wus In her cheeks
as Uro-Blon went on: "Your feet are
too small, even for a boy's feet. I
tlon't tlilnk you could be made to look
like n mnn lf you worked from uow
till tloomsdny."
•' Brandon -spoke In n troubled tone,
for bo wns beginning to see In Mary's
perfect and Irrepressible womanhood
an Insurmountable dllllcully right
across bis pnth.
"Afl to your feet, you might find
larger shoos, or, hotter still, Jack hoots,
and, as ,to jour hose, yoll might wear
longer trunks, but what to tio about
tho doublet I am sure I do not know."
Mnry looked up helpless and forlorn,
and tbe hot face went Into lier bended
; elbow as a realization of the situation
j seemed to dawn upon her.
"Ob, I wish I had not come!   But I
' wanted to grow uceustonied, so that I
could wear them before others. I believe I could bear it more easily with
any one else. I did not think of lt In
tluit way." And she snatched her
cloak from where lt had fallen on tbe
lloor and threw It nround ber.
"Whnt way, Mnry?" asked Brandon
gently nntl receiving no answer. "But
you will have to bear my looking at
j'oti all the time lf you go with me."
"I tlon't believe I cnu do lt."
"No, no," answered he, bravely attempting cheerfulness; "wo may as
well give It up. I have hnd no hope
from the first I knew It could not be
done, and it should not. I was both
Insane and criminal to think of permitting you to try It."
Brandon's forced cheerfulness died
out with his words, anil he sank Into a
'hair, witb llis elbows on his knees and
Brandon and I were struck dumb with
bis face in his hands. Mary ran to himi
;:t once. There hatl been a little moment of fullering, but there was no>
real surrender In her.
Dropping on lier knee beside blm, she
snid coaxlngly: "Don't givo up. You
ure n man; you must not surrender
and let nie, a girl, prove the stronger.
Shame upon yon when I look up to
you so much ami expect you to help me
he bravo! 1 will go. I will arrange
myself In some way. Oh, why am I
not different? I wish I were as straight
us the queen." And for that flrst time
In her life she bewailed her beauty because It stood between her nud Brandon.
Sbe soon coaxed him out of his despondency, nml we began again to plan
the matter In detail.
The girls tat on Brandon's cloak and!
he iind I ou tho camp stool und a box.
Mary's time wns well occupied In
vain attempts to keep herself covered
with the cloak, which seemed to hnve
a rlgbt good will townrd Brandon nud
ine, but she kept track of our plans,
which, ln brief, were ns follows: As
to her costume, we would substitute
long trunks and Jack boots for shoes
nntl hose, and, ns to doublet, Mnry
laughed nnd blushlngly snld she bad a
plan which she would secretly Impart
to Jnne. but woultl not tell ua. She
whispered It to June, who, ns serious
us tbe lord chancellor, gave judgment
and "thought it would ilo." Wc hope*
so. but were full of doubts.
This Is nil tamo enough to write nnd
rend about, but I onn tell you lt wn»
sufficiently exciting nt the time. Three-
of us nt least were playing with thnt
comical fellow, Death, and he gave the
game Interest and point to our hearts'
As to tbe elopement, lt was determined that Brandon should leave Loudon the following day for Bristol and
make nil iiirnngcments along the line,
lie woultl carry with blm two bundles,
his own and Mnry's clothing, nnd leave
thom to he taken up when they should
go it shipboard. Klght bonnes would
be procured, four to he left as a relay
nt an Inn between Berkeley cnstle and
Bristol nml four to be kept nt the rcn-
dczvous some two leagues the otber
side of Berkeley for the use of Brun-
tion. Mnry nnd the two men from Brls-
i . .lm were to net as au escort on the
eventful night There wns one dls- |
agreeable li'ile font uro thnt wc could
lot provide ngnlliBt nor entirely cllm-
Itinto. It Was tlio fact that Jane and
I should be suspected as accomplices
before the fact of Mnry's elopement;
uml, as you know, to assist ln tbe ab-
dnctton of n princess Is irenson, for
Which thero Is but one remedy. I
though I I had a ;.!an to keep oursclvee
Biifo If I could only slide for the once
Jane's troublesome uud rigorous tendency to preach the trulli to nil people
upon all subjects ami at all time* and
places. She promised to tell the story
I should drill Into her, but I knew the
truth wimlil seep out In a thousand
ways. SI1'- conld no more hold lt than
n sieve can hold wnter. We wore playing for grent stakes, which, lf I do sny
It, none but the bravest hearts, bold
nnd tlnrlii,'.' ns the truest knights of
Chivalry, Would think of trying for—
nothing less thnn tbe running nwny
with the lirst princess of the llrst blood
royal of the world. Think of It! It
appalls nie even now. Discovery meant
death to one of us surely, Brandon;
possibly to two others, June and mo,
certainly if Jane's truthfulness should
become unmanageable, as it was apt
to do.
After we hnd settled everything we
could think of the girls took tbelr leave,
Mary slyly kissing Brnndon at the
door. I tried to Induce Jane to follow
her lady's example, but sho was as
cool nntl distant as the new moon.
The next dny Brandon puld his respecls to the king and queen, made his
adieus to his friends and rodo off alone,
to Bristol.   You may be suro tbe king
snoweti uo signs or untiuc grid at his
AJ~"1 FEW  days   after   Brandon's
depurture,   Mury,   with   tbe
aajjt    king's  consent,   organized  a
P8Wy| smnll party to go over to
Windsor for a few weeks during the
warm weatber.
There were ten or twelve of us, Including two chaperons, the old Earl of
Hertford and tbe dowager Duchess of
Kent. Henry might as well have sent
along a pair of spaniels to act as chaperons—lt would hnve taken an army
to guard Mary alone—and to tell you
the truth our old chaperons needed
watching more than nny of us. It was
scandalous. Each of them had a touch
of gout und wben they made wry
faces lt was a standing Inquiry among
us whether they were leering nt each
other or felt a twluge—whether It was
their feet or their hearts tbat troubled
Mary led ">em a pretty life at all
times, even at homo ln the palace, and
I know they would rather havo gone
off with a pack of Imps than with us.
The Inducement was tbat lt gave tbem
better opportunities to bo together, nn
arrangement connived at by tbe queen,
I think, nnd they were satisfied. The
carl had a wife, but be funded the old
downger and she fancied him, nnd
probably the wifo faueled somebody
else, so they were all happy, i It greatly amused the young peoplo, you may
be sure, and Mary snld, probably without telling the exact truth, that overy
night she prayed God to pity and forgive their ugliness. One dny tho princess sold she wub becoming alarmed.
Tbelr ugliness was so Intense she feared lt might be contagious aud spread.
Then, with a most comical seriousness,
she added:
"Mon Dleu, Sir Edwin, whnt if I
should catch lt? Master Charles would
uot take me."
"No danger of that, my lady, ne ls
too devoted to see anything but beauty
ln you, no matter how much you might
"Do you really think bo? He says
so little about lt tbat sometimes I almost doubt" .
Therein she Bpoke the secret of Brandon's success wltb her, at leant in tbe
beginning, for there la wonderful potency ln the stimulus of a healthy little doubt
We had a delightful canter over to
Windsor, I riding wltb Mnry most of
the way. I was not nverse to this arrangement, ns I not only relished Mary's mirth and joyousUess, which wero
at their height, but hoped I might give
my little Lady Jane a twinge or two
of jealousy, perchance to fertilize her
sentiments toward me.
Mary talked and laughed and sang,
for her soul wns a fountain of gladness that bubbled up tbe Instant pressure was removed. She spoke of little
but our last trip over this samo road,
and, as we passed objects on the wny,
told me of what Brandon bad said at
tills place and that. She laughed and
dimpled exquisitely In minting how
she had deliberately mnde opportunities for blm to flntter her until at last
lie smiled ln her face and told ber she
wns the ;nost benutlful creature living, but that, after all, "beauty was as
beauty did."
"That made me angry," said she. "I
pouted for awhile and two or tbreo
times was on the point of dismissing
Mm, bnt thought bettor of lt and asked
him plainly wherein I did so  much
amiss.   Then what do you think the
impudent fellow Bald?"
"I cannot guess."
"He said, 'Oh, there ls so mnch It
would take a lifetime to tell it'
"This made me furious, but I could
not answer, and a moment later he
said, 'Nevertheless I should be only
too glad to undertake the task.'
"The thought never occurred to either of us then that he would be taken
at his word. Bold? I should think he
wns! I never saw anything like ltl I
have not told you a tenth part of what
he said to me that day. He said anything he wished, and lt seemed that I
could neither stop hlin nor retnllate.
Half the time-1 was nngry and half
tbe time amused, but by the time we
reached Windsor there never was a
girl more hopelessly and desperately ln
love than Mary Tudor." And she
laughed as lf lt were a huge joke on
She continued: "That dny settled
matters with me for all time. I don't
know how he did lt. Yes, I do." And
she launched forth Into an nccount of
Brandon's perfections, which I found
somewhat dull, and so would you.
We remained a day or two at Windsor and then, over tho objections of our
chaperons, moved on to Berkeley cnstle, where Margaret of Scotland was
spending the summer.
We had another beautiful ride up
the dear old Thames to Berkeley, but
Mnry had grown serious and saw none
of it.
On the afternoon of the appointed
day the princess suggested a hawking
pnrty, and wa set out in tho direction
of the rendezvous. Our pnrty conBlst-
cd of myBelf, threo other gentlemen
and three ladles besides Mary. Jane
did not go. I was afraid to trust her.
She wept and with difficulty forced
herself to say something nbout n headache, but the rest of the lnmntes of
the castle of courso had no thought
Hint possibly they were tnklng their
last look upon Mnry Tudor.
Think who this girl wns we were
running nwny withl What reckless
fools wo wero not to have seen the ut-
U-r hopelessness, certain fnllure and
loudly peril of our act; treason blnck
is Plutonlnn midnight But Providence
seems to have an especial eare for fools,
while wise men nre left to care for
themselves, nnd It docs look ns lf safely lies In folly.
Wo rodo on nnd on, nnd although I
took two occnslons lu the presence of
others to urge Mnry to return, owing
to the approach of night nnd threatened rain, she took her own hend, aa
everybody knew she always would,
and continued the hunt
Just before dark, ob we ncarcd tho
rendczvouB. Mary and I managed to
rlile ahead of the party quite a distance. At laBt we aaw a heron rise,
antl Hie princess untapped her hawk.
"This Is my ebiiDce," she Bald. "I
Will run away from you now and loso
myself. Keep them off my track for flvo

She told me so. There! Goodby, my
friend. Kiss her n thousand times for
me." And she flew her bird and galloped after It at headlong speed.
Soon tbe princess was out of sight,
and I waited for the others to overtake

mo. When they came up, I was greeted ln chorus, "Whero ls the prlnceas?"
I said she bad gone off with her hawk
and bnd left ine to bring tbem after
her. I held them talking while I could,
and when we started to follow took up
the wrong scent A short ride mude
this apparent when I curae In for my
full share of abuse and ridicule, for I
bad led tbem against tbelr Judgment
I was credited with being a blockhead,
when, ln fnct they were tbe dupes.
We rode hurriedly bock to the point
of Mary's departure and wouud our
horna lustily, but my object had been
accomplished, and I knew that within
twenty minutes from the time I last
saw ber sbe would be wltb Brandon
on tbe road to Bristol, gaining on any
pursuit we could make at the rate of
three miles for two. We scoured the
forest far and near, but of courso found
no trace. After a time rain set ln nnd
one of the gentlemen escorted tbe ladies borne, while three of us remained
to prowl about tbe woods and roads nil
nlgbt In a Bonking drizzle. The task
was tiresome enough for me, as lt lacked motive, and when we rode Into
Berkeley castle next dny a sorrier set
of bedraggled, rain stained, mud covered knights you never snw. You may
know the castle was wild with excitement There were all sorts of conjectures, but soon we unanimously concluded lt hnd been tbe work of highwaymen, of whom the country wns
full and by whom the princess had certainly been abducted.
The chaperons forgot their gout and
each other, and Jane, who was the
most affected of all, had a genuine excuse for giving vent to her grief and
went to bed—by far the safest place
for her.
What was to be done? First, we sent
a message to the king, who would
probably have us all flayed alive, a fear
which the chaperons shared to the fullest extent. Next, an nrmed party rode
back to look again for Mary and, If
possible, rescue her.
Tbe fact tbat I bad been out the entire night before, together with the
small repute In which I wns held for
deeds of arms, excused mo from taking
part ln this bootless errand, bo again I
profited by the small esteem ln which
I was held. I say I profited, for I
stayed at the castle with Jane, hoping
to find my opportunity ln tbe absence
of everybody else. All the ladles but
Jane had ridden out and tho knights
who had been with me scouring the
forest wero Bleeping, since they had not
my Incentive to remnln awake. They
had no message to deliver, no duty to
perform for an absent friend. A thousand! Only think of it! I wished it
bad been a million, and so faithful was
I to my trust tbat I swore ln my soul
I would deliver them, every one.
And Jnne loved me! No more walking on the bard, prosaic earth now.
From this time forth I would fly; that
was the only sensible method of locomotion. Mary had said, "She told me
so." Could lt really be true? Yon
will at once see whnt an advantage
this bit of Information was to me.
I hoped that Jane would wish to see
me to talk over Mary's escape; so I
sent word to her that I wob waiting,
and she quickly enough recovered her
health and came down. I suggested
that we walk out to a secluded little
summer house by tbe river, and Jane
was willing. Ah, my opportunity was
here at last!
Jane'B whole attitude toward me was
changed, and she seemed to cling to
me in a shy, unconscious manner, that
was sweet beyond the naming, ss the
ouo solace for all ber grief.
After I bad answered all her questions and had told ber over and over
again every detail of Mary's flight and
had assured her that the princess was
at that hour breasting tbe wnves wltb
Brandon on their highroad to paradise,
I thought lt timo to start myself In
tho Bnme direction nud to say a word
lu my own behalf. So I spoke very
freely and told Jano what I felt and
what I wanted.
"Oh, Sir Edwin," Bho responded,
"let us not tbiuk of anything but my
mistress. Think of tbe trouble sbo is
"No, no, Jane. Lady Mary Is out of
her trouble by now and Is as happy as
a lark, you may be sure, pas Bbe not
won everything her heart longed for?
Then let us make our own paradise,
ilnco wc hnve helped tbem make theirs.
You have It Jane, Just within your
lips. Speak the word, and lt will
change everything, lf you love me, and
I know you do."
.lane's head was bowed, and she remained silent.      ., ......•'

Sbe wont up the middle steps and
turned arouud the corner to tbe right.
A long line was extending back from
the door, expectant, Impatient, though
the visitors' gallery would not be open
to the public until 12. She drew from
her belt the one remaining link of
former opulence. It still lacked ten
minutes, and sbe slipped the watch
back with a scarcely breathed sigh.
Why had Bhe come here at all, Bhe
thought accualngly? She would bo better visiting the stores ln search of a
position as clerk; there were surely
some business houses she had not yet
boon in.   And—and besides—
Her eyes were brlghtor, and a flush
came and descended to her lips ln ai
soft, evanescent smile that was more
like tbe smile of tbe old days before
tbo wistfuluess camo.
Sbe had been standing at the post-
oflleo door, and he bad looked precisely
as ho had that day when ho parted
from them ln the Arizona canyon, he a
penniless prospector and her father an
extensive mine owner. And he had not
forgotten. Even before she saw him
he had sprung from a carriage, without regard to bis horses, and was cdtn-
lng up the postoffice steps with outstretched hands.
"Good heavens! You here, Muriel-
Miss Ashburton," he had cried, with a
gladness In his voice which he did not
attempt to ct«eeal and which brought
an answering color to her face and.
light to her eyes. There hsd beeni
nothing between them except a look
and hand pressure, but sbe had often
thought of him In these later dreary
years and was glad to know he had.
remembered her. "I looked for you:
everywhere—everywhere," he had continued, "but "without a clew. I waa
afraid you had gone from my life.
But pardon me; we cannot talk here,,
and I have a great deal to say. May
I call on you at onco—this evening?'
Is your father hero?"
"My fatbor ls dead," she had managed to say. Her brain had been ln a.
whirl, her heart In a tumult. What:
did It all mean? W1"11 was tii.'s lm-
petuous madman saying, Implying? By
a strong effort she had controlled herself.
"Yes, you may call," she had answered ln a low voice. "I—I will be-
glad to see you." And sho had given:
him the number of tbe house ln which:
she rented one small room.
"Thank you. I will be there early. E
would ask to go back with you now,
but I bave nn nppolntment whlcb ls;
already overdue. Isn't It providential,,
though, this meeting? I have been Int
Washlugton only three days, nnd toi
turn up against you like this!"
"Have you  employment here?" she-
had asked for want of something bet- j
ter to say.
"Yes, temporarily; a Job In the senate chamber. You remember I was a
Jack of all trades, from a farm boy to
an ImpecunlouB prospector, with oeca-
slonnl dabs at fresco painting nnd Journalism to help me through college. But I
I will not detain you here In the wind |
any longer."
She had watched him spring Into the
carriage and drive away, an odd light
ln her eyes nnd a warm color In her
cheeks. As she went down the slde>-
walk she laughed softly. Eight years
before she would not hnve been like
this. Evidently he was without any,
regular employment Just doing somo
temporary work ln the senate chamber
—fresco painting probably, for he had
spoken of being familiar with that At
first, from his being In. the carriage,
holding the horses, she had thought he
might be a coachman, waiting for his
employer's return. But after all, wbat
did lt matter? Coachman or painter or
Impecunious prospector, ho wns warm
hearted and honest and ambitious. She
could read tbat ln his eyes and ln the
strong, full grasp of his hands. And
he had remembered her and-_nd cared
for her. It waa beautiful to know that
in the hurrying, Indifferent world there
waa one who still thought of her and
eared for her a little. Tho manner or
lack of employment was such a small
matter compared with tbat Knowledge of life soon leveled such petty distinctions.
Almost unconsciously her steps had
turned toward the capltol. The only
alternative seemed a continuation of
her search for employment, and, Borne-
how, Bhe shrank from that just now,,
even though she had been restricting:
herself to a single meal a day for a
week. She would celebrate tho finding
of n friend. It was opening day at the
senate chamber and would bo unusually Interesting, and perhaps she might
see this friend himself or somo of the
iwork he had been doing.
There wns a sudden stir In the line
ahead of her, and sho folt herself being
pushed forward. Tbo door was open
at last, and foot by foot, yard by yard,
she was being Impelled toward lt But
when she entered every sent was tnken,
and she could only crowd herself Into
the narrow space behind the- last row.
She could Bee the chaplain and a few
of tho senators on the far side of tho
chamber and upon the few desks ln
sight a gorgeous display of flbiwers.
Presently she heard the opening
prayer and bowed her head. Then
thero was a confusion of voices, with
quick, crlBp sentences from one desk
and another, followed by a short recess
In which there woe a great shaking of
hands and Introductions among the
senators. At the end of fifteen or twenty minutes some of those ln the visitors' gallery began to rise nnd leave.
Ther had witnessed the ouenlinr and
were now going home to lnnch. Soon
she was able ta step down to a vacant
seat ln one of the front rows.
Bhe had now a good view of the
chamber, and her gaze swept curloUBly
from desk to desk. Many of the senators Bhe recognized from pictures sbe
had seen ln current periodicals. Suddenly sho started and half arose. Bho
had not thought to see him down there;
lf she met blm at all It would be in
one of the corridors, and probably at
work. But there he was, at one of
the desks, examining some papers.
What did lt mean? He had no right
to be In there now, whilo the senate

face to face.
"What! you here, Muriel—Miss Ashburton?" he cried. "This ls splendid I:
Now we can havo that talk without,
waiting until evening. I know a cozy,
little table down in a comer of the
cafe where we can be all by oursolvos.
We will talk while we eat our lunch.
Sho was looking at him with wide
"Why were you ln there, at a desk?"
she demanded.
"In the senate chtmibcr? Oh, that's
my Job. You seo, whon I left you that
day I went straight to one of the new

to like my ways, and last year tbey
hatched up a plot to send me hero. But
come, we cun talk better at tbe table.
I have a proposition for your consideration, and," his voice suddenly becoming grave, "I hope you will bo able to
see your way to accede to lt.   Come."

"townles" ln the Taclfic, says tUe CI d-
cago Record-Herald, aud after a lan'.l-
ing for water on the coaBt of Southi

muttering to his crew to take lt oasy.
Tbe others Jecri»d him as he fell behind, but he took it cheerfully,
"Tb e race I'm after ls the race home,"
he sn Id. Ho pointed to a little bight In
the rocks into -which the crejw could
Just see.
"Ever see that rock ln there before?"
he asked. "No, I guess not. That's a
<ow whale and her calf up, there on tbe
shore. It's her nnrsery."
When tbe others were far enough
away to give him a clear field he made
for the shore. He got the cow and! the
calf. The others said very little atwut

MediclneB of the old faahloned kind
will sometimes relieve the symptoms
of disease,  though  they can    never
touch tho disease Itself—they never
curo.    Ordinary  medicines  leave behind them   Indigestion,   constipation,
biliousness and headache;  purgatives
leave the patients feverish and weakened.    Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills,    on
the other harid, do direct good to the
body, blood and nerves. iThey fill the
veins with new, rich, red blood; they
brace the nervos; they drive out   diseaso oy going right to tho root of the
trouble In the blood.   They always do
good—thoy cannot poBsIbly do harm.
Mrs.   Geo.   Hpnley,   Boxgrove,   Ont,
sayB:—"It Is with thanks that I tell
you that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
cured mo aftor my doctor had said I
could not bo cured.    I suffered from
an almost constant fluttering   of   the
hourt, and sometlmos   severe   pains.
Tho least exertion would   leave   me
breathless and tired out.   My appetite
was poor and my hoad ached   nearly
all the timo.   I had lost all ambition
to do nny work, and felt very hopeless.
I had taken a groat deal of medicine
without any bone.lt, until  1 was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Theso    hnve    mado    a    remarkable
change ln my condition, and I am feeling   bottor   thnn I   have   done   for
years.     I gladly give my experience
ln tho hopo that tt will benefit others."
Now Dr, Williams' Pink Pills build
up strength as they did in Mrs, Henley's caso In Just one way—they   actually make new blood.   That Is   all
they do, but they do lt well.    They
don't act on   the   bowels,   they don't
bother with mere symptoms.   They go
right to the root of the trouble In the
blood.   That ls why these pills   oure
anaemia, headache, heart palpitation,
indigestion, kidney trouble,    rheumatism, lumbago, neuralgia,   St.   Vitus

Not very many years ago, In a
country church ln the west of England, the clergyman, preaching with
great earnestness for home missions,
came down from the pulpit, well content with the effect his eloquence had
produced on tho congregation. Suddenly the disturbing thought struck
him that ho had made no arrangements for the collection, which was
sure to be a liberal one on this occasion. As he passed through the chancel ho whispered hurriedly to a choir
boy: "Go Into the vestry, take the
plate you will find on the table, hand
it round to the congregation, and then
bring it back to me." The boy dei-
parted on his errand, and the minIs-;
ter took his place within the communion rails and gave out tho offertory
hymn. The last words of this had
scarcely died away when the boy
stood before him, a plato of biscuits
in his hand and an apologetic expression on his chubby face. "Please,'
sir," he explained ln un audible voice,
"I've handed them all to everybody,
and nobody will bave any."

An Ancient Recipa for Marriage Divination—Pin   Lora—Easter  Custome
—The Origin of "Dunning."
The expression owes Its birth to the
business energy of one Joseph Dun, a
bailiff, of Lincoln, ln the reign of Henry VII. He was reputed to be so expert
and successful ln the difficult art of
bad debt collecting that when a creditor had a troublesome debtor to deal
with lt became customary for sympathizing friends to Bay, "Why don't
you 'Dun' him?" And so the noun
became a verb, and a verb It has remained ever since.
Marriage Divination.
"Make a plain cake, and mix therein a wedding ring and a small silver
coin—aa a sixpence. When the company are about to retire ln the evenlnl
after a wedding, break the cake Into
as many portions as there are unmarried women present, and give a piece
of lt to each of them. She who gets
the ring will be married very aoon afterwards; but she who gets the sixpence will die an old maid." (What is
to be the fate of those who get neither

Pin Lore.
An old folk rhyme runs:—
See a pin and pick It up,
All the day you'll have good tuck;
See a pin and let It lie,
All the day you'll need to cry.
or, as the Devonshire version has lt:—
To Bee a pin and let lt lie,
You'll want a pin before you die.
But pins have become cheaper since
these words were first written, and bo
they are seldom, If ever, repeated nowadays.
Eaater Customs.
A peoullar Easter custom ls observed
at Halaton, ln Leicestershire. On
Easter Monday morning the villagers
gather at the rectory, and thence walk
tn procession to Hare-pie Bank, a piece
of land w__lch many years ago was bequeathed for the use of tbe reotor.
Arrived there, they set to work on two
hare pies, twenty-four loaves (which
are scrambled for), and a sufficiency of
alo, all of which the reotor provides, ln
fulfilment of the condition by which
he holds the ground.
The vtoar of Coleshlll, ln "Warwickshire, holds his glebe land on condition
that lf any of the villagers can catch
and present him with a hare before ten
o'clock on Eastor-day morning he shall
provide them with a calf's head and
one hundred eggs for their breakfast
and a groat In cash.
A Norfolk custom ls to eat baked
custard at Easter tide, probably because eggs are the principal Ingredient
of the dish.
An old Easter weather rhyme, popular tn agricultural districts, runs: —
If It rains on Good Friday and Easter
There'll be plenty of grass and Borne
very good hay.
Dear Men and Departed Spirits.
"What" asks a correspondent "is
tho meaning of the words ln tbe song
'Down among the dead men let blm
He'?" The song ls a relic of the old
drinking days, and the words mean
simply: Let him drink to such excess
that he will slip oft his seat and lie'
helpless among the empty bottles under
the table. Empty wine and spirit bottles are called "dead men" because the
alcohol, or spirit, ls no longer ln them.
When a man's spirit leaves his body,
he ls a dead man, and so, when the
spirit Is out of the bottle, the bottle ls
(humorously) called "a dead man."
A Good Turn.
Now that the old treadmill Is a thing
of the past, It Is Interesting to learn
that It was once vaunted by the "authorities" as a cure for—rheumatism!
In 1828, Mr. Home Secretary Peel, having officially asked the visiting Justices
what effect the then recently Introduced "wheel" had upon the prisoners'
health, they assured him that lt was
In every way beneficial, and cited, as
proof of Its sanitary virtues, the cose of
a rheumatic woman, who us she was
leaving Brixton prison after a month
on the treadmill, being asked how she
felt, replied that her rheumatism was
entirely oured.
A Maligned Eooleslaetlo.
Tho Scottish Archbishop (and church
historian), Spotlswood, wbo ln 16B9
was put to rest In Westminster Abbey
after 74 years of strenuous life, bore
the sinister reputation of having, ln
his early clerical stage, committed the
—to Soottlsh Church folk—shooklngly
heinous sin of playing football on tbe
Sabbath day, and this Is how he acquired lt: Returning from church one
Sunday, be come upon a disorderly
rable who were playing football, and,
the leather making in his direction, to
prevent lt striking his shins he stopped lt with his foot, and through that
natural defensive action he gained the
stigma which attached to blm during
the remainder of his career.
The III and the WelL
To St Oswald's Well, ln Benton,
Northumberland, ls attributed the virtue—providing certain simple formalities be observed—of predicting the recovery or otherwise of a sick person
from his malady. Tho looal tradition is
that lf an undergarment, taken off the
patient and thrown Into the well, floats
on the water the patient will reoover, but
lf It sinks his condition ls hopeless. Tho
well, as Its name Indicates, ls under
the patronage of St. Oswald, and In
Popish times lt wns customary for
those who used the tost to tear off a
piece of the test garment and hang lt
upon an adjacent bush, by way of
acknowledging the saint's services In
the matter. The offect of this ln the
period of Its vogue ls described hi an
old manuscript preserved ln the Cot-
tonlan library: "Of these rags," says
the writer, "I have seen such numbers
as might have made a fuyro rheme In
a paper myll."
The Blind Man's Story,
There la a pitiful story told In tha
Bookman of Philip Bourgo Marston, the
blind English writer. One day a particularly good Idea came to him, and
he sat down to his typewriter with enthusiasm. He wrote rapidly for hours,
and had nearly finished the story when
a friend oame ln. "Read that," said
Marston, proudly, "and tell me what
you think of lt." The friend stared
at tho happy author and then at the
blank sheets of paper In his hand before he was able to understand tbe
llttls tragedy. The ribbon had been
taken from the typewriter, and Mars-
ton's toll wns for nothing. He never
had the heart to writs that story again.
Which Is the more reprehensible of
tha two expressions, "Oh, dear me," or
"Not worth a tinker's flam"? Soms
good folk will be surprised to learn that
the former words, for all their apparent Innocence, comprise downright hard
swearing, being simply an Anglicised
form of the Italian "0 Dio Mol!"—literally, "Oh, my God I" On the other
hand, the latter fierce, round-oath-Uk*
expression is merely a harmless Indus,
trial simile. The tinker's "dam" was
an embankment of clay or putty, by
wblch fused solder was confined to a
desired point, and afterwards, when th*
metal had cooled, the "dam" waa broken
away and thrown aside as worthless—
hone* "not worth a tinker's dam."

shoulders and turned away, with the
remark that they were not acquainted. "But, General," Bald the stranger,
"don't you remember how you saved
my life at the battle of the Wilderness?" General Blackmar at once became interested, and he called a group
of comrades over to listen, saying: "I
saved this man's life once. How was
lt done, old comrade?" "It was this
way,," was the response. "We were

—Mr. William Doeg, of this place, now

using Dodd's Kidney PHIb.
"For four years I suffered excruciating torture," says Mr. Doeg. "I
was scarcely an hour free from pain.
I could not He down to take rest, but
had to sit night and day ln a chair."
"I was treated for rheumatism by
several doctors, and also tried several
medicines without receiving sny benefit Almost in despair I feared I
never again would be free from pain.
Then I read of some remarkable cures
by Dodd's Kidney Pills. I procured a
box and soon found they were doing
me good and before I had finished the
second box I wss entirely free from
pain and a new man."
Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure
Rheumatism by putting tho Kidneys

Acid—out of the blood.

What Flour Granulation
Means in Bread-Making B:
Flour is composed of myriads of
tiny granules.
To make good bread these granules
must be uniform in size.
In poorly milled flour some granules
are large, some small.
The small ones absorb yeast, "rise"
and "ripen" before the large ones—
the result is bread of coarse, poor
The large granules are not developed
into "6ponge," they bake into heavy
hard particles, spoil the texture of the
bread and make it harder to digest
is perfectly milled—all the flour granules are uniform in size--—the sponge
rises uniformly—the bread is even is

looking, appetising bread — easily

ViUfCOUVER, B.   C,  Nov. 4, 1905.
Mf. Leonard Courtney, in a letter
'to the London Times says;
"I have before me copies of letters
addressed by the consul-general of
■Japan in Australia to the prime minister of the comommvealth, and—as
a last resort—to Lord Hopctoun, offering on the part of his government
to agree on terms which should regulate the immigration of Japanese so
'ks to prevent the arrival of undesirable comers, but urging that Japanese
Should not be excluded en bloc by
legislation on account of their color.
The consul-general gave reasons for
thinking there would be very little
'immigration, and the correspondence
;on his side was throughout couched
in the most friendly and conciliatory
Spirit—always in vain. The Commonwealth Act is indiscriminate in
its exclusiveness, and I have read
only this week in your columns a
telcgrnm from Australia that no suggestion will be entertained there of
substituting a treaty of regulation for
the prohibitory act. How this tem-
'. per can be approved here in face of
'our treaty of alliance is a puzzle, and
' some Imperial friction seems inevit-
: able. Nor is the difficulty confined t°
Australia. Baron Komura, having
•happily recovered his health, has gone
'back to resume his duties as minister
' of foreign affairs via Vancouver. British Columbia has shown its temper
by passing again and again a bill for
the exclusion of Japanese, which bills
•the Governor-General at Ottawa has
Vetoed. Baron Komura had all this
within his knowledge, and, perhaps,
in his mind, as he passed along the
Canadian Pacific, and the memory of
it enme back to others, foi** a telegram
appeared in your columns apropos of
Ihe passage of the minister that the
temper of British Columbia was unchanged and the Japanese exclusion
bill woultl again be passed by the

For reading during convalescence
the British Medical Journal would
prescribe literature that cheers but
does not inebriate, and would con-
traindicate writers "whose style, like
that of George Meredith, puts a constant strain on the understanding of
the reader, or, like that of Mr. Maurice Hewlett, irritates by its artificial
glitter, or, like that of Marie Corelli,
annoys by its frothy impertinence."
Dickens should go well during convalescence—except "Pickwick," at
least in surgical cases, because of the
many side-splitting episodes whicll
would play havoc with the union of
parts. And for the same reason, in
order that healing granulations may
not be interfered with, we would absolutely interdict Mark Twain. Smiles'
"Self Help" is quite innpeuous; but
we should be cautious in recommending it, in order that the patient may
not thereby be led to meditate over
a misspent career, and to have suggested to him all the opportunities in
life he might have gpsped but did
not. A despondency might thus be
induced which would delay a restoration to health, and which might even
prove fatal. Thackeray (except
"Vanity Fair," which is a pessimistic
book) should go very well; "Pendeii-
nis" and "Barry Lyndon" will certainly entertain. The magazines of
the day are placid and cheering
enough; antl in them one will seldom
come upon a story sufficiently original or vigorous to excite anybody.
Punch will, of course, be always in
order—for its humor is of the soothing sort, which never arouses one's
risibilities, but keeps him always
within the decorous limits of a smile.

Embroidered .Trimming .on .Cache,
One of the heralded trimming ft.,i>
itures of cachemire gowns, which promises to be taken up with entnu..-
iasm, is an ajour or open embroidery
similar to that used on white linens
and lawns this summer. The effect
is altogether most pleasing and happy, as it gives the sort of dressiness
that is desirable, while at the same
time reserving that peculiar softness
and beauty of texture for which cachemire is so noted, and holding the
color scheme intact by using the self-
tones in the embroidery silk. That
contrasting effects will, in many cases
prove desirable, goes without saying.
It all depends upon the designs employed, and the effect aimed at.
Peach Blossom Redingote
As an example of an unusual elegance is a cachemire redingote costume, worn over a skirt of the same
in most exquisite peach-blossom tone
The upper skirt is of peau de soie
matching the caclhemirc, and has a,
cachemire flounce eighteen inches'
keep in solid eyelet embroidery, lien%-
med up upon the bottom with a biafc
bund of the silk. This redingote!
[alls over the top of the cachemire;
flounce in an easy manner, and is
tacked lightly with silk bridges, long
enough 'to ailow the coat's swing to
be unhampered. This coat is also
made with shaped fittings of silk,
forming long sections from neck to
its skirt bottom, which spread out
and taper in, as the lines of the figure
require. Between these sections of
silk the cachemire eyelet embroidery
fits perfectly, making an ensemble
that is most facinating. The rever
collar is of ajour cachemire entirely,
and lined with the same treatment.
White lace is the finish of the sleeves
and put on so as to cling to the arm.
The chemisette also corresponds.
There is an apparent close-fitted-
ness across the bust seen in fashion-
