Hull   ..-here It CtrojihUes,   TeL BUOfs Linked by
The moon shone in regal splendour
on one of the_most beautiful spots oa
this beautiful earth.
lt was one of the islands which lie
olf the eustern shore of Australia. A
gentle breeze stirred the foliage, the
waves lapped in on the golden sands
ond broke gently on the rocks, mak-
■ ing a music as soft and southing as
the breeze; the opalescent light lit up
the scene and turned it into a dream
of fairyland.
And a man stood on the beach, and
looking round upon this fairyland
cursed  it  fluently under his breath.
He was young and well made; one
of those good-looking young men
which the public schools and the
'varsities turn out with machine-like
regularity'. He was an athlete and
strong, but in the moonlight he looked wan and pale and infinitely weary,
with tho weariness of doubt, anxiety
and  sleepless nights.
His surge suit was tatterd and
torn and shrunk by the water and
the sun, and his shapely head was
covered by a battered hat made of
As he stood looking moodily before
him, there came from a rough hut,
at a little distance from the beach,
another young man. He was by no
means an athlete, but small and thin
and bent, and he wore the remains
of a black serge suit of clerical cut;
for he was a clergyman, He was even paler and more wan than the man
on the sands, and he pressed his thin
hund to his chest and coughed as he
cume along  slowly and   painfully.
The two men looked like characters in an old fashioned farce; but
there was tragedy here. For these
two men, with sundry other persons,
were all that remained of the crev
and passengers of the vessel Alpine,
which eight days previously hud been
wrecked off the coast of this unin-
hubited island.
The Reverend Arthur Fleming
crawled to his companion's side.
"Vou  have  seen  nothing,    Manncr-
lng?"     he   asked;   not   as   one     with
hope of an answer in the affirmative,
but as if thu question wore u formula which had grown into a habit.
Vane  Mannering shook  his head.
"No," he said, gravely:  "und I am
afraid   we're  not  likely  to.      In    m.v
opinion, this beastly lund is    one    of
. the  numerous  groups  wliich   is  quite
out of the line of shipping.  Thu fact
that  thu Alpinu lost her course proves that,  I  think."
"Vou mean that there is little hope
of rescue?" said Arthur Fleming in a
low voice.
"Very little chance." assented
Mannering. "Of course, I can't say
lor certain. If they had taught me
' geography at Eton or Oxford, instead of Latin and Clreek, und several other still more useless things,
I might give u guess as to where we
are; but as it is I've no idea. If
there hud been any chance of our being picked up, wc should have sighted a veesel before now. In all probability wu shall be left to die of starvation—well, not of starvation, por-
hups, say ennui—in this cursed island."
Fleming's lips opened to murmur,
"Bless and curse not;" but he refrained. It was scarcely the moment
for reproof; and, indeed, his gratitude to his companion helped to
chi'ck him; for the party owed their
lives to Vane Mannering, whose energy, alertness, coolness and presence of mind had brought them fiom
the doomed ship.
"Have you seen the Doctor and
Miss Nina?" asked Mannering, nfter
a pnuso. filled up by Fleming's hollow cough.
"Shu is in their hut; I saw her go
in hulf an hour ago. The Doctor is
slill wandering about the island. The
way that girl bears up, Mannering,
fills ine with admiration and reverence. She is here all alone with us
men; she hus suffered all the privations, thut terrible journey in the
boat from the ship, all the dreadful
uncertainties of our position with
something more than heroism; for
huroism always suggusts to my mind
a kind of blatancy and self assertion;
but she has been not only fearless,
but cheerful and self-reliant, and yet
trustful. I tell yo'u, Mannering, when
I think of her my heart goes out in
gratitude to Cod for His creation 0f
sex. Who would have thought that
such a slim bit of a girl, who seemed
ull gaiety and lightness of heart,
would have proved such a noble character!"
Mannering nodded. "She is still
keeping well? I was afraid she might
gut a touch of fever, such as the rest
of us havu had."
"She hud a slight attack," said
Fleming; "but she seemed to throw
it oil with a coiiruge as great as her
patience and self-denial. The Doctor
is about tho same; he is still very
weak und his mind seems cloudy, but
he insisted upon going out;    and   ho
has taken his hammer with him to
knock off bits of rock, and so on."
"1-et him," said Mannering, briofly;
"it will amuse him and keep him
from brooding on the situation. I
wish I could go and knock ofl pieces
ot rock, instead of standing idly
"How con you talk so, my dear
Mannering?" ho said. "You hav* beeu
our leader, our sole support; you
have worked indcfutlgably from
morning to night. But for you we
should all bo lying at the bottom of
the sea there; wo owe our lives to
your energy, your pluck, your wonderful power of endurance."
Mannering shook his head. "I have
done little enough," he said, moodily. "You ought not to be out here,
Fleming," he added, as Fleming's
cough shook his frail figure.
"I'm all right. It's very warm ln
the hut; and I don't cough any more
out here. We'll both turn In presently. "Why, don't you smoke?"
"I gave my last pipe to the Doctor," Mannering replied, casually.
"He wanted it worso than I do."
The stridont sound of a concert! a
floated unmusically from one of ' ia
Mirce huts, and was followed s il
more unmusically by loud voices uud
"The men seem merry to-night,"
remarked Fleming with a sigh.
"Yes," said Mannering. "I gavo
out a tot of rum to each man this
evening. I wish—" He hesitated, and
Fleming looked up at him quietly.
"I wish they weren't here," continued Mannering, "They aro an element of danger, Fleming. Up to the
present they have behaved fairly
well, for lt ls only since the last day
or two they hav* begun to grouse;
but how long will thsy continue   to
A   iWSiftllllMl-PlHilisw

Will they op contend tq let mo deal
put the rum? They kijiow \vhe|ip the
keg is. "C could nof prevent tht»i_= getting at it. '
" They 're.-rl hey 'ro not all bad,"
suggested Fleming. "They have stood
by us up to now."
Mannering nodded. "No. they are
not all bail; but there are one or
two black sheep amongst them. I
mistrust that Lascar and the other
stoker. Munson. He is always haranguing the rest. 1 saw him skulking round the Doctor's hut last
night. If they were Englishmen one
would not have any misgiving; but
—I" lie shrugged his shoulders. "We
man our ships with the scum of the
earth, Fleming, just as we fill the
Fust End of London with aliens to
tnke the bread out of the mouths of
our own poor." The noise from the
men's hut grew louder. "I think I'd
better go and see what they are doing," he said.
He and Fleming approached the
hut quietly and looked in. Some of
the six men were lying full length on
the ground, others seated on stools
roughly constructed of thu limbs of
the pinu trees. In the centre of the
hut stood the keg of rum, and Munson was drawing some of the rod
liquor into a can. They had ull been
drinking freely, and were flushed and
Fleming groaned as he saw tho
kug. and Mannering's face grew
stern; but he uttered no sound, and
gripped Fleming's arm to warn him
to silence, for the Lascar was spunking-
"Ve nre what vou calls 'pnls,' " ho
was saying in his thick, sibilant
voice, his black eyes rolling evilly on
the faces of the listeners. "Ve aro

ter Mann'rin' that ish trickin' us;
im and the Padre, ah, and the Medico, too! They hab the money. 1 who
speak know it. I saw thish man push
the box to the Medico as he got into the  boat."
"The box of medicine and instruments!" whispered Fleming.
Mannering nodded grimly. He was
listening intently and scanning the
faces of the men keenly.
"That's true; I saw 'cm," said
Munson. Atid some of the others muttered assentingly.
"The box wash full o' money, gold;
jewels, loo. perhaps. Thutsh so! You
know so la ties do give their jewellery to ze purser to tnke care of. Eh,
vhat I Thatsh box was full of delimits. An' it bolongsh to us, eh,

"To us; all of us, yes!" grunted
"To us who manned ze boat, who—
vorked like slaves puttie' jp zese
houses; to us. ze laborers, ze brothers of toil, ze zalt of ze earth!"
"That's so." assented one of the
men. "Pass round the rum again,
The Lascar emptied the can at a
draught, refilled it and passed it to
(he mini next him; then hu leant forward and whispered, huskily:
"It ish in the Medico's tent. It ish
miter the bed of the girl; I saw
Mishtor Mann'rin' put it there. Ve
will go. ve will all go and git it,
and share it  man to man!"
Koine of the men sprung to their
feet unsteadily; but one or two were
not so prompt; nnd a voice said,
"There's no hurry; let's have our
drink  first."
Mannering cautiously drew Fleming
"There is no lime to lose," he
said, gravely, when they had got out
of hearing.
"You will give them the box, show
them thnt it does not contain any
gold?" said Fleming, with the cough
he hnd been repressing with difficulty.
"No," said Mannering quietly.
"They would not be convinced; besides it would be n fntnl weakness.
Do you think"—he paused a moment
and his lips tightened—"that they
would be satisfied-. Some of them
might, hut not the Lascar and Munson. They are brutes, beasts; and
you know the effect of the first taste
of blood on such wild beasts. They
would want more—everything, perhaps." He paused nnd Fleming following Mnnncring's thought, pictured thf young girl in the hands of
these men and shuddered,
"What will you do?" he asked, as
a man asks his lender and commander.
"Show   light."   said   Mannering    as
quietly as   before. "We have the only
firearms, that  were saved—a couple of
revolvers  and  a  gun."
"1 can manage a.revolver; but, oh,
Mannering, If we could avoid bloodshed;" murmured Fleming.
"We'll try," suid Mannering. "It
rusts with thom. Vou agree with me
it would be unwise, indeed, a criminal folly, to yield to thein? Thoy
would not stop—There is Miss
Fleming nodded and bent his head.
"Vou ure right—as you have
bloen all through,  Munnering."
They hud been approaching the hut
which Mannering laid, with his own
hands, built for Doctor Vernon and
his daughter, und hu signed to Fleming to knock; but Fleming shook his
"No." he snid; "you will do it better thun 1, Munnering. She looks up
to you, relies on you. You will give
bar courage. 1—I am not u coward,
I hope and trust; but 1 should let
her seo the—the dread that makes me
cold at this moment, und you will
not.    No; you!"
Mannering nodded and knocked at
the rough door of the hut. It was
opened b.v u young girl, She was
very beautiful, with u beauty which
is indicuted by expression us much as
regularity ol feature. Her eyes were
of the dark grey wliich at times become violet, her hair was of a soft
black, and the gods had given her
the mouth which, when it smiles,
wins men's hearts. But she wus not
only young but innocent of vanity or
self-consciousness, and her eyes lit up
and her lips smiled with frank pleasure as she saw who it wns.
"Oh, good evening. Mr. Mannering!"  she  said     wilh  quiet  cheerful-

air, ''Will you como In? My father is

She did not start or turn pale, but
stood, in her stained and patched
serge dress, calm and attentive.
Mannering knew enough of women
to know that with this one, young
as she was, the proper course was
the direct one. His eyes rested re-
ftectingly for a moment on her lovely
face, on the small, shapely head
with its soft, black hair resting on
the forehead and wound into a knot
at the back, then ho said:
"I am afraid there is, Miss Nina."
He had grown to call her by her
Christian name; shipwrecked people
aro apt to be slack on extreme
points of etiquette. "The men are
getting—impatient. They entertain
the absurd idea that wu have smuggled the specie and valuables from the
ship  in your  father's medicine chest
Sho glanced at the box under the
rough bed.
—"And—and they aro coining for
it presently, I think."
"And you will not givo it them?''
she said, quietly, ub if she had read
his face upon which her beautiful
eyes were fixed.
"No; they'd want more," he said.
"And wo must make a stand at the
outset. Theru may bu n little noise

Her smile, surely the. sweetest ever

lips and shone in her eyes.
"No," he said, "you have displayed such pluck, such—oh, I cannot express myself!" he broke off us if in
"Oh, but you have!" she said, with
the faintest blush. "I was just making some tea.   Will you have a cup'.'"
Mannering glanced at the meat tin
on tho fire, and gauged its contents.
"Thanks, no. 1 have just had
some." Generally, Mannering, with
all his faults, was a truthful man.
"But Mr.   Flomining—he is outsidoj'
He beckoned Fleming in, und Nina
poured out a cup of tea for him
gravuly; of course she knew that
Mannering had lied.
Fleming took it gratefully; it was
to him as rum was to the men.
"Mr. Mannering has told you?" he
said in a low voice.
Nina nodded. "Yes; I am sorry.
But I hope it will all be over buloro
father comes back. He is not well;
he is feverish—and—he has been
wandering a little ln his mind, lie
has taken the gun—   I am sorry!"
Mannering touched Fleming on the
arm, and they went out and to their
own hut, got and loaded their revolvers, and, returning to the beach,
sat down as if for a quiet talk.
They had not to wait long.
"Take It coolly," murmured Mannering, as the six meu came out of
the hut. Some of thom walked unsteadily, one of them was singing;
but the Lascar and Munson were still
sober, though evidently excited by
the liquor.
Mannering rose and slowly went to
meet them, walking in the direction
that put him between them aud the
Vernohs'  hut.
"Good evening," he said; "want
"You ask ze polite question, sur,
and ve giv you ze polite answor. It
ish ze little box in ze hut zero," replied the Lascar with a mocking
Mannering raised his brows with
simulated surprise.
"Anybody ill'.' The box contains
medicine and instruments of various
kinds," he said, quietly.
The Lascar showed his gleaming
teeth in a sardonic smile.
"Ish zat so?" he retorted, with an
incredulous jerk of his hand. "Ve
vill see—"
"I think not," said Mannering, so
quietly that Fleming's heart throbbed with a tribute of admiration.
"You will take my word for it. I
see that you have got the keg of
rum—you havo broken your promise—"
"To ze devil wiz your promise!"
the Lascar broke in. "Vy should
you keep all zu best of ze swng ve
bring away from ze ship? You keep
ze rum, ze box of gold, ze girl!" he
leered evilly, and moved forward as
if to pass Mannering. Mannering
drew his revolver.
"Stop whero you are!" he said,
grimly; there was a spot of red on
his hollow checks, and a light in his
eyes which spoke of the just rage
which had sprung up in liis heart
like a flame.
Fleming stepped forward and held
up his hand.
"Men, I want to speak to you!"
he said, fighting with his cough.
"You know what Mr. Mannering hus
done for us. But for him— But
surely you don't want me to remind
you! And surely you cannot suspect
that ht—wc—have any idea of tuking
any advantage of you. The chest
contains only medicine and iistru-
ments, as Mr. Mannering said. You
were wrong, very wrong, to take the
keg of rum; you wouid be acting
wickedly if you wore to follow thu
advice, the leadership, of this man,
who is as much indebted as tha rest
of us to Mr. Mannering."
Some of the men exchanged glances, but tho Lascar cut in with a
short, sardonic laugh.
"Ze Padre speaks softly, as ze
Padro always do. Veil, then, let one
of us go into the Medico's hut—"
Ho moved forward, but Mannered
covered him,  saying:
"Not a step."
The Lascar pulled up and looked
Mannering up and down.
"You speak bravely, Mishtor
Mann'rin'! You 'ave the gun!" He
made an insolent gesture with his
facile and eloquent hnnds. "If you
had only ze little knife like zis, wo
would settle the matter, uh, so ker-
vickly!    You arc ze ono coward!,"
Then Mannering did a foolish
thing—the foolish thing which Englishmen individually and collectively
so often do; he gave away his advantage. It wns Inexcusable; but,
ah, well, let the man who has meekly borne the taunt of a Lascar and
boen called a coward pitch thu first
stone; I will not; and 1 have an idea
that the reader will not.
Mannering looked into the rolling
eyeballs for a moment or two; then
he said:
"Suu her now, men. If it's a fair
fight butwecn us and I win, will you
take iny word and go back to your
hut quietly, not only go back but
leave that man's lead?"
The men looked at each other and
whispered.   They were more or less

and thoy wpro lqi.glng for the kino
pf fight Manjier|ng indicated, Don't
blame them. In the House pf Commons a "personal" matter will fill
the benches; and any sort of duel has
a fascination for every man with red
blood in his veins.
"Yes, fight it out; we'll sec fair
play!" shouted a man, thickly.
Mannering  beckoned to  Fleming.
"Take my revolver," he said,
uloud, "and shoot the first man who
attempts to interfere—"
"Mannering! Mannering! You will
not do it! 1 implore, I beseech you!*'
cried Fleming with solemn earnestness.
.Mannering quickly stripped ofl llis
cout and rolled up his sleeves.
"No use, Fleming; I must. Either
that man or I must bo master.
They'll follow tho victor like sheep,
you'll see.   It will end the trouble—"
"But, Mannering, these men, these
Lascars, are adepts at the knife,"
urged Fleming almost frantically.
Mannering shrugged his shoulders.
"I learnt a trick or two when 1 wus
in Malacca," he said, quickly. "Uot
a handkerchief?"
Fleming shook his head. Tho door
of the Vernons' hut opened nnd Nina
came quickly down to them. Her
face was white as death, her eyes
wero liko "tho violets steeped in
dew," her lips, white as her face,
were set tightly.
"Mr. Mannering, you must not!—
you will not!" She looked into his
eyes and saw that her appeal was
hopeless. "Then—then—thero is a
Hu took it, bound his bowio knifo
to his wrist and held it out to Fleming. Fleming hesitated; tho girl
caught the wrist and tied the knot
Munnering wanted.
"Thanks," ho said, coolly. "Now
go inside—and shut the door."
She obeyed; and, leuning ugainst
tho wall as if to still her throbbing
heart, looked between tho logs.
Munson had bound the Lascar's
knife to llis wrist, and the two men
confronted each other. The moon
shone down on them in placid mockery of such poor stuff as human
emotions; the soft breeze wafted tho
perfume of tho pines across the men's
heated breath; the sea sang to the
golden beach; tho delicious night was
full of beauty. To poor Fleming,
even in tfiat intense moment as ho
stood revolver in each hand, there
flashed the lines:
"Where every prospect pleases and
only man is vile."
The Lascar's face seemed to glow
as if with the reflection of fire; the
Englishman's was white and set with
thu calm of courage and resolution.
"Come on," said Mannering; and,
as he spoke, the Lascar sprang at
If there is anything more exciting
than a "knife fight," I do not know
it. It is cat-like in the rapidity ot
its movements; it is soul-thrilling in
its moments of doubt and uncertainty; it is'awe-inspiring in its pauses,
rushes, wrestlings. The two- men
crouched, sprung, caught at tho
wrists of tho hands that hold tho
knives, struck, parried and avoided
the gleuming blades by swift, almost
imperceptible swaying and glidings
of the bodies.
The Lascar was as agile as a snake
and bent, dipped and attacked with
sinuous force; but Mannering, though
lacking this facility of movement.
possessed the qualities of strength,
endurance and the cool eye, and by
the exercise of these he parried the
terrible attack.
The men, sobered now by the intense excitement, looked on in breathless excitement. Fleming, forgetting
them and clean forgotten by them,
suffered the revolvers to droop In
his shaking hands.
And the girl for whom this awful
fight wns being fought—what a presumptuous idiot I should be if 1
attempted to set down her emotions!
Suddenly a short cry, a gasp, rose
from the men and was echoed by
Fleming; the Lascar's knife had cut
a gash in Marine-ring's shoulder.
"Oh, stop! stop! For God's sake,
stop, Munnering!"  cried Fleming.
But neither the combatants nor the.
other spectators heeded—they probably did not hour him.
Mannering felt the cut of the sharp
knife, felt the blood running down
his shoulder and side; but he set his
teeth and forced himself to remain
calm; everything depended, ho knew,
upon his keeping his head; not his
life only, but the girl—the sweet, innocent girl. Ah, now he must not
lose his head!
He drew back a moment, and the
Lascar, with a hideous smile, pressed on to him. It was what Mannering wanted. With a sudden swerve, a
movement of the lug and the strong,
steel-liko left arm, he threw his op-
ponent to the ground, and in an instant was on top of liim with a knee
liko iron pressing into his chest. Ho
raised his arm, the reflected knife
gleamed in the moonlight, the Lascar's wavering life hung in the balances. A shudder run through the
spectators, a cry arosu from Ninn—
she had como to tho d"or. While
ono could count ten the knife poised
above the Lascar's heart. Then, bofore the other men could interfere,
Mannering had wrenched thu knife
from the Lascar's grr.sp and flung it
behind him; thon hu ton. the band-
ago from his own arm and sent his
knife flying with thu other.

Can all be Cured by the Use of
Dr. Williams'Pink Pills
More than half the disease in the
world is caused by bad blood — Weak
blood, blood poisoned by impurities.
Bad blood is the causo of all the headaches and backaches, tho lumbago and
rheumatism, the neuralgia and sciatica,
the debility and biliousness aud indigestion, the paleness and pimples and all
the disfiguring skin diseases like eczema,
that show how impure the blood actually is. It is no use trying a different
medicine for each disease, because they
all spring from the same cause — bad
blood. To curo disease you _jusr get
right down to the root of tho trouble in
the blood. That is what Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills do. They make new, rich
blood. Common medicines only : touch
the symptoms of disease. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills root out the cause. That is
why these pills cure when doctors and
common medicines fail. Here is positive
proof:—"I suffered agony from indigestion," says Mr. Fred Fillis, of Grand
Desert, N. B. "I had no appetite for
my meals and no energy for my work;
my stomach caused me constant distress
aud everything I ato lay like lead on
my chest. At times I felt my life a burden. I was always doctoring, but it did
me no good. Then a little book came
into my hands, and I read Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills would cure indigestion. I
got them and began taking them, and I
soon found they were helping me. My
appetite began to improve and my food
to digest better. I used the pills for a
couple of months and I was well. Now
I am always ready for my meals and I
can eat any thing, and all the credit is
due to Dr. Williams'Pink Pills. I keep
the pills in the house all tbe time, and
I occasionally take a few as a precaution.
I can honestly advise all dyspeptics to
use this medicine, as I am sure it will
cure them as it did me."
Give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair
trial and they will cure you, simply because they make that rich, strong blood
that disease cannot resist See that you

Borne of the penguins ln the antarctic
regions weigh as much as eighty
pounds and are about four feet high,
with a splendid orange patch on the
neck. The young take three years to
develop fully, and even then the plumage is distinctly less brilliant than In
tbe older birds. Both the movements
and migration of tbe penguins ore remarkable. Wben first followed the bird
prefers to walk, but when ln danger of
being caught It drops on to Its abdomen and wltb the help of tbe wings
glissades at a pace too great to be overtaken by a man walking. They seem
aware of the movements of the grent
Ice fields and use them to help their
migration to the puck lee ln the north.
They take trouble to collect stones,
which they delight to steal from one
another's piles, for nests.
Mnny of tho ways of the penguins
are suggestive of preserved Instincts.
Their attitude when sleeping Is modeled on thnt of birds with fully developed wings. But the penguin hns to
be content with reaching the shelter
of his wing with no more than the tip
of his beak.

The well baby is never a cross baby
When baby cries or is fretful, it is taking

there is something wrong. That something is probably some derangement of
the stomach or bowels, or perhaps the

easily removed and cured by Babies'
Own Tablets, and baby smiles again—
in fact there's a smile in every dose.

The Forestry convention whleh has
been summoned by the Premier of
the Dominion to meet in Ottawa in
January next calls attention to the efforts that have been made to plant
forest trees on our western prairies.
When settlement begins a supply of
building material and of fuel la one
of the first''things thought of and
this question obtrudes itself prominently on the sparsely timbered western prairies. The efforts successfully
made to grow clumps and belts of
trees have shown their value not ouly
for the purposes mentioned but for
shelter both to the houses and crops
from cold winds of winter and the
drying winds of the summer. What
can be accomplished by the judicious
planting "of forest trees for shelter
purposes is shown by the successful
growth of apples by Mr. A. P. Stevenson of Nelson. It will be of interest
to trace the efforts made by the government to assist the settlers In remedying the natural   conditions.
In submitting tho report of the Department of interior In 1870, ho then
minister of that department, Hon.
David Laird, stated that during bis
journey from Fort OWT-y to QuAp-
nelleln the summer of 1S74, nothing
Impressed Itself upon his mind more
than the treelessness of a vast portion of the country over which ne
passed. Day by dav ns he crossed
the wide extent of prairie utterly destitute of trees the question presented
Itself- How is the settlement of
these' oroides possible if the settler
s without wood for fencing, building
or fuel? His attention having been
called to the work done in tree planting in the Western States, he Instructed the Surveyor General Col.
J S Dennis, to obtain all available Information on the subject. .     . _.
Hon L B. Hodges, superintendent
of tree planting on the St. Paul and
Pacific line of railway was considered one of the most competent authorities on the subject at that time
and in making his report Col. Dennis
appended some suggestions on tree-
planting ffrom an essay by Mi-
Hodge and also quoted the assertions
made by that gentleman which be
thought his five yearn' experience justified Somo of these statements
were that at a mere trifling expense
the stockvard and buildings on the
Meekest ,-i.ralrie homestead mpy be
surrounded ln five yenrs with a belt
of trees forming a windbreak and affording effectual protectlou; that a
grove of trees can be grown ns surely aB a crop-of corn and with far less
expense In proportion to Its value;
that apparently worthless prairie
lands can, by the planting and cultivation of the timber thereon, be sold
for SI 00 per acre within twenty years;
that the net profits of lands properly
planted and cultivated with trees will
within ten years realize at the rate
of ten to ono as compared with profits attending the raising of wheat.
The Surveyor General added that outer more forcible propositions were
put forth by Mr. Hodge but he did not
quote them. Sufficient has been quoted however to show how sanguine
were the expectations of some of the
early advocates of tree planting and
how predictions were made on theoretical premises and with very light

grass, and In 1876 an amendment was
passed authorizing th* granting of a
quart*r-sectlon of 160 acres after the
explrary of six years frpm the date of
entry on condition that eight acres
of the land had been broken and prepared for planting within one year
after entry, an equal area during the
second year and sixteen additional
acres within the third year after that
date, and that a similar scale had
been followed In tree planting commencing from the second year, the
trees to be placed not less than
twelve feet apart each way. Each applicant for entry would require to
make an affidavit that the land applied for was open prairie and without timber.   -
Under this amendment 253 claims,
covering an area of 40,480 acres were
taken up during the years 1877 to
1879, but only six entrants completed the duties necessary to entitle
them to patent, the last patent being
sued so recently as the 31st August,
1895. Most of the claims taken up
were ln the district along the Red
river, others were farther west near
the international boundary and some
as far west and north as the Mlnne-
dosa district. The claims for which
grants were Issued were ln township
2, range 4, east of the 1st Meridian
township 3, ranges 5 and 6, west of
the 1st Me|ridlan, and township
ranges 12 and 14, west of the 1st
The reason for the practical failure
ot this experiment was undoubtedly
the lack of knowledge of tho trees
suitable for growth ln the west and
of the methods of caring for them.
The provision that the trees must be
planted not less than twelve feet
apart shows at once that the knowledge of the supposed experts was
very faulty. In connection with agriculture the fact has gradually forced
itself upou the public mind that lt
cannot be carried successfully except
by those who have special knowledge
of and training In It, and it is largely
the same with arboriculture. The
grower must know what to plant, how
to plant it, and how to care for it afterwards.
At that time every Individual tree
grower had to make his own experiments, but the work of the Experimental Farms In Manitoba and the
Territories and of the Dominion For-
otry branch have placed matters ln a
much more favorable position. The
trees which have been found most
satisfactory for planting for woodlots
or shelter bolts are the box elder or
ashed leafed maple, the elm, the green
ash and the poplars. The poplars
grow fast but the wood Is soft and
not durable. The Cottonwood ls used
most of these trees. The Ruslan poplar was considered likely to be useful
bnt has been found subject to rot.
Elm makes a good growth and succeeds well on low ground. Green ash
makes a good wood but grows rather
slowly. The ashed leaved or Manitoba maple ls the most generally planted as lt grows so quickly that ln a
short timo a shelter bolt will attain
a  serviceable height.
But even after selection of the
proper species care In tno setting out
and management are required If success ls to be attained. The land must
be prepared for the reception of the
trees and the strong grass and weeds
that might choke the seedlings in the
flrst few years must be kopt down hy
cultivation. The Dominion Forestry
branch provides for expert advice In
these respects and the prospects are
that the efforts now made will be successful in acompllshlng what previous attempts failed to do up to the
present time.

The stages of eczema are marked by
redness of the skin — heat and inflammation—swelling — watery discharge-
formation of a crust or scale — and almost constant itching varying from
that which is simply annoying to that
which is positively beyond human endurance.
The beginning is often neglected chafing and skin irritation, or a small pimple or sore which has been poisoned by
the clothing.
Too frequent washing is to be avoided, but the afflicted parts should be
thoroughly cleansed with Packer's Tar
Soap and tepid water. After careful
drying (not rubbing) with a soft towel,
apply Dr. Chase's Ointment plentifully.
The ointment may seem a little severe at first, but this is necessary to
a thorough cleansing of the sores, for
relief from the dreadful itching will
come after the first few applications,
and thorough cure will be the reward
of persistent treatment
One thing you can be certain of, and
that is that you are not experimenting
when you use Dr. Chase's Ointment as
a cure for eczema, saltrhoum, psoriasis,
tetter, and similar skin diseases. It ha.
acquired its world-wide reputation by
the positive cure of these very diseases,
and while using it you can see that
gradually and certainly it is allaying the
inflammation and healing up the annoying and distressing sores.
Mr. William Castle, Eagle Hill, Alta.,
writes,—"About Nov. 1st, 1903, I broke
out with small red blotches on my arms
and they afterwards spread all over my
body. It was so itchy that I could not
sleep at nights for scratching. I suffered untold misery and was almost driven
te desperation. I tried everything at
hand and my friends recommended
numerous remedies all to no avail.
"When I began the uso of Dr. Chase's
Ointment I had little hopo of relief but
tho rosult has been wonderful. From
the first this preparation gave relief from
the dreadful itching and it has now
brought about a cure."

Saskatoon Busy.
A Saskatoon dispatch says:—Last
week was a busy week ln Saskatoon,
wheat and grain of all kinds pouring
In, taxing the powers of the Canadian
Northern yardB to find places for the
cars. The farmers' hearts have been
cheered by tho splendid harvest weather. The rains have made tho fall
plowln good, and quite a lot has been
Kalen Island to be Terminus.
An Ottawa special says:—Tho car
service department f tho Canadian
Atlnntc railway offico has been closed.
This ls the first offlce outside that of
the general manager to be closed under that of the Grand Trunk railway
system. All the staff have been look-
edafter. Most of tho clerks will be
transferred to Montreal. The report
from Detrot that Vancouver Is to be
the terminus of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway Is, It Is understood, made
out of wholo cloth. Kalen Island, ln
the Skcena river, has been chosen, and
the company will not swerve from its
decision to mako a great port at that
point at the dictation of a few men
who may desire to speculate in Vancouver city lots. The company holds
that as regards trade with tho far
east, Kalen Island has an advantage
of several hundred miles over the
more southerly route. The namo of
the new terminals for the city has not
been determined, and the Canadian
public will be Invited to assist n selecting lt. A prize of $250 will be
paid by the directors to tho Individual who suggests tho most appropriate name. It ls not to exceed eight or
nine letters, and must bo some euphonious Indian name ot the British
Columbia tribes.
A Mlddleton, N. Y., dispatch says:—
Trlpplo murder was revealed here
when the bodies of Willis and Fred
Olney were found In tho woods half
a mile from their home, at which was
found the murdered body of —lice
Ingerlck. Both brothers had been
shot The crime is expected to num-1
ber ono moro victim, the mother of
the girl Alice. Tho mother, who was
found unconscious in the barn of the
Olney brothers farm, has not regained
consciousness, and was said by physicians to bo dying from three fractures
ln her skull. As soon as daylight per-
mittel a search to bo made for Fred
and Willis Olney, who were missing
fro inthelr home, when Mrs. Ingerlck
wns found unconscious and her daughter murdered, tracks leading across
two fieds to a wood near tho house
wero seen near the searchers. The
tracks wore fresh. Just beyond them
In the woods were found the bodies of
Fred and Willis, each lying ln the
same position on his back, with ono
arm across the breast. All the pockets ln their clothing had been turned
Insldo out. Marks tn the underbush
showed that tho bodies had been dragged from a wagon to the place where
they were found. The police the waggon wheh evidently carried the murdered brothers to the woods to be the
same vehicle which many persons noticed ln tlio vlcin.ttj| of the Olney
farm. Two strangers were ln the
wagon and they drove Into an old
backwoods road about half a mile
away from the Olney farmhouse. Tho
wagon was selon driving up the old
road, when lt disappeared ln the
woods which borders the rood. Several hours after the time when lt waa
believed tho murder was committed,
this wagon was seen on tho same road
driving away from the vicinity of the
Olney brothers' farm. Tho wagon
went towards tho Shawangunk mountains. The pollco have not secured
witnesses to the-wagon's courso. The
fact that an attempt was mado to kill
every person who ls known to have
been In tho Olney house just before
tho murderous attack was made has
caused the police and the entire neighborhood \o declare that tho crlmq
had other motive than robbery and
that tho rifling of the Olney brothers'
pockets was only a ruse to mislead
pursuit. No plausible motive for the
murder haB yot been advanced by the
police. Willis Olney was a widower,
whose wifo died last August, and Fred
was a bachelor. Mrs. Ingerlck, who
had separated from her husband, had
been employed as a housekeeper at
tho Olney brothers' place only about
a month. Her husband, Martin Ingerlck, lived at Wurtsboro, N. Y.

linen turnover collar. The newest
of the imported linen collars are of
thickish fine linen, and unstarched, so
that they lit in opaque white smoothness about the stock though perfectly pliable and without that stiff rigid
line of the starched variety. Some
of these new turnovers are very
deep, fully two inches, and have
..mall white linen-covered buttons set
about them for decoration.
The peculiar use and beauty of
these articles lies in their manifold
adaptability, a fact which is, of
course, apparent to all those of discernment. .
To the  Girl With Nothing a Year.
With cool weather and days still
long there is time—and should be
some inclination—to steal an hour or
two for some useful knitting or
crochet work. Among new and inexpensive things to make and give
away is a baby's go-cart blanket. The
maker must decide whether she will
use all white wool or a pleasing
shade of gray. It will depend upon
the cure to be taken of the blanket
when in use. It should take at least
five skeins of wool for the entire
pocket and several for border crocheting of German-town zephyr, bear
brand, four-fold. The width of the
child seated is a guide for the wool
strip, which should be long enough
to double into a bag large enough to
enfold the seated child and still leave
many rows above this pocket whicll
should reach and cover the child's
waist. A flap piece is joined on as
deep as the single part. A shell border is carried around the pocket after it has been sewed up at the sides
with needle and wool, and in front
on the flap, then' rows arc required
to widen and  trim it.

Now the New Year.rcviviuft old Desires,
The craving Phoenix rises from its Fires
Indeed, indeed Repentance Oft I swore.
But last Year's Pledge with this New-
Year expires.
Come, fill the Pipe, and in  tho Firo ol
The Onbau  Lenves upon   tho Embers
That iu its Incense I may serinonizo
Ou Womau's Ways and till  that sort
of Thing
Ah, Love,  th' Invisible Buskin at the
Illumes yonr Eyes that languored gaze
and wnlt
And iu their Iuciiudesceuco seem to ask
The world-old Question; "Is my Hat
On Straight."
A Griind Piano nndeiTieatb tho Bough,
A Gramophone, a Ohinese Gong, and
Trying to sing an Antheiiinoft'theKey—
Oh, Paradise wero Wilderness enow I
So unto Venus' Oracle in turn
I lenned, tho Secret of niy Love to lenrn.
Tho Answering Riddle enme: "She. loves
you, yes,
In just Proportion to t lin Sum you Kuril.'

There is no home too small to use Electric Light.    Every
dwelling should use it—Everybody will use it.
The children—bless them—they cun not upset the Electric
Light aud burn the house dowu,    They can do no harm
whatever with Eleot.no Light.
It can bo lighted or extinguished by a toncb of a bnttou.
No lamps to clean; uo smell of coal oil; no disfigurement
of walls.
Wheu a small amount of light is uecdod, 0 or 10 caudle
power Lamps may be installed,  thus reducing the total
espouse of light.
Call and seo us in reference to installing Electric Light to
take tho place of your Goal Oil Lamps.
