Dentistry as we practice it is a serious profession,
involving education, carefulness and skill. Therefore we can not compete iu prices with the ignorant, tbe careless or the unskillful. Comparison will show, however, that wo charge less than half as mnch as
most privato praotioncrs.
But yon nsk, Is the work ns good? We reply, it
is better Indeed, no dentist who tries tn practice all the different

"This is called the Wizard's Itooitt.
Portrait of the wizard over fireplace,
I should soy. Looks forbidding
enough for a wizard, at any rato,"
he added, and Julian, with liis back
to the window, looked up at thu
mould-spotted lace scowling down at
"I like it," be snid.  "The room,  1
menu. It's so quaint and old-fashioned and remote.   Ah!" his luce lit up
us   if nn   idea   hud    suddenly     struck
liim.    — -
"What is ii?" Inquired Vano,
Julian turned nway.
"tih, I was only thinking  that   it
would make K good laboratory,"   he
eald, caroloSBly.
"Hy George I So it would!" assented Vane with a.laugh, "Right away
from the rest of the house—I suppose
that even the awful smells I noticed
at your place wouldn't get through
that passage und that thick oid
door? Wo could put another door, a
baize affair, warranted stink-proof,
couldn't we? See here, Julian; why
riot havo this room for vour—what
do you call it?—laboratory?"
Julian's face flushed and liis lids
"My dear Vane, you speak as if—
ns lf I were the owner, as if 1 had
the right to dispose of, to choose,
any room in Lesborough Court—"
Vane regarded him with a grave
"So you are, so you can," he said.
'•You will bo the owner—"
Julian's face grew pnlc and he
moiled a polite contradiction.
"As I told you, I shall never marry. You are the heir, tlie next earl.
See here, Julian; let us understand
each other. I want you to make the
Court your home—that is, if you
enre to do so, and while you wish to
do so. You don't imagine that I intend living here alone? No, thanks! 1
know what loneliness, solitude, ineun
•—" lie broke off suddenly. "I want
you to understand that tho Court
will be yours, and that you have as
much right to live here as, well, as I
have. Mako the room your laboratory, by all means."
"But me no buts," interrupted
Vane. "I mean It. I'vo got a trick
of saying what I mean. I—well, I'm
not the sort of man to settlo down
anywhere. I'm a restless, Wandering
Jew kind of fellow, and I shall
probably bo off on the tramp again
presently. Now, you—well, I fancy
you are quite a different sort of man;
you arc a 'Home Bird,' us the song
Bays. Fond of music and science and
all that sort of thing. C.ood! this is
evidently the place for vou."
'But—     begun  Julian  again;
.Vane made a slight gesture.
"Oh, don't think that I want to
Interfere with your independence, oi
to bo a bore and a drug on you.
Not a bit of it. You can keep up
that old place of yours by the
Thames, if you like. I should; it's a
queer, quaint old diggings; but make
tho Court your home. Now, don't
nrgue. I'm a poor hand at arguing,
and invariably lose m.v temper. You
can send for that old servant of yours
--what's her name, by the way?"
"Deborah," said Julian. His brows
were knit, and he stood with drooped
lids and tightened lips; he seemed to
be reflecting so intensely as scarcely
to bo breathing.
"Debornh; name Boems to fit her.
Well, send for her, if you like. In
fact—there! do just ns you like, and
we shall get on very well together.
Let's get out of this, shall we? If
you decido to turn tho room Into a
laboratory. It will want thoroughly
doing up—"
"Oh, no," said .* linn, , lancing
round almost lovingly. "Just clearing out and cleaning. The fireplace
would need some little alteration. An
Intelligent mason—"
Vane laughed.
"First, lind your mason," he said,
"then sound him for intelligence; result—" he shrugged his shoulders.
"We cnn get through that door into
tho stable courtyard. Why, where is
tho door leading from this room?" he
broke off to remark.
Julian looked round. "Thero docs
not appear to be a door. Perhaps it
bas been bricked up or panelled over."
"Ah, p'r'aps so," snld Vane, Indifferently, and ha led the way out by
the door at which they had entered.
"My department again," ha said
with a laugh as they entered the
nlnblcH. "But perhaps you ride as
well as you fence, Julian?"
Julian shook his head. "I'm not
much of a horseman," ho said.
"Modesty nguin!" rotorted Vane.
'"Well, you must pick your mount.
Thero used to be a fairish lot of animals— Ah, Bodson," as the coachman camo hurrying Rcross tho yard
from his cottage to receive his new

"Quito, my lord. I bred him myself, and broke him."
"Good; then he'll do for Mr.

Mr. Dodson touched his cap to
Julian, who remonstrated with Vane.
"Oh, but—my dear Vanel You will
surely keep the chestnut for yourself-"
"Oh, the nrnro will do for mo!"
said Vane, carelessly. "She's a good

"So I see, said Vane. "I noticed

We'll Just glance at the coachhouse—"
"Ah, we want a new carriage or
two, my lord," said Mr. Dodson.
"Just so. Just so. Ah, well, plenty
of time," said Vane as he cast a
comprehensive eye round. Glad to
see you looking so well, Bodson."
"Thank you, my lord, nnd the
same to your lordship, If I may
make so bold," said the gratified
Dodson, with a touch of his cap.
"We'll go under tho arch and round
to the front," said Vane, as they
walked away. "Nice fellow—Dodson;
remember him putting me on my first
pony. Hello, who's this—Fanworthy,
by George!"
They had passed under tho tall
archway and entered upon the drive
along which an open landau was
coming toward the house. An elderly
man with the air of a sportsman and
an aristocrat was the solo occupant,
and as he caught sight of the two
young men he leaned forward and
waved his hand.
"Ah, Vano!" ho exclaimed. "What
luck to Just catch youl I heard the
news of your arrival, and drove over
on the chance of seeing you."
"Tho luck's mine, Lord Fan-
worthy," said Vane. "It's very kind
of you, veryl Let me introduce my
cousin—Mr. Julian Shore."
Lord Fanworthy raised his hat
with old-world courtesy.
"Come Into the houso," said Vane;
but Lord Fanworthy shook his head.
"No, no. Can't! Against positive
orders. Her ladyship emphatically
bado me not leave the carriage. 'If
ho is there, just tell him that he la
to come back with^ou; that I say
so.' Her very words, Vane, I assure you."
"In that caso, there's only ono
thing to do: obey," said Vano.
"That's right, my boy!" suid Lord
Fanworthy, approvingly. "Pray get
in, Mr. Shore; my wife will bo delighted to see you. It's not far. What
a beautiful day for your return,
Vanel By Jove, you must have a
rare budget to tell us! Not a word
till you get home I You're looking—
yes, well. Been knocked about a bit,
ch? Thought so." The* he turned to
Julian. "I remember your father, of
course, Mr. Shore. He may havo
spoken of me?"
Julian colored slightly. "I am Sorry to say that he did not, Lord Fan-
worthy. My father never spoke of—
old times."
"Ah, yes, yea, quite sol" assented
Lord Fanworthy, quickly. "Great
nuisance, family feudal You have a
look of the Mannerings, Mr. Shore.
I think I should, hava known you as
ono of them, even If I had met you
Tho three men chatted as the
horses span along the well-kept road,
and after a short drive they reached
tho Grange. Lord Fanworthy led
them into the drawing-room, calling
"Em'lyl" as he went. Lady Fan-
worthy was seated in a low chair
by the window, knitting. She had
been a reigning beauty; she was
beautiful still with her silvery hair,
wonderful complexion and the groy
eyes which were almost as brilliant
—and far keener—than those of most
girls. She held out her snow-white
and exquisitely shaped hand to Vane
and nodded and smiled, her eyes
flushing over him as if they were
taking in every feature of his face;
thon they passed from him to Julian,
enquiringly, and as keenly.
"It's good to see you. Vane,", she
said; and there was almost a maternal note in the low, clear voice; for
Vane, as a lad, had been a favorite
of hers, and, with tho tact for which
sho was famous, sho had often slipped ln between his uncle and him
und prevented a quarrel. "And lt was
good of you to come so quickly. And
this Is—" Vane introduced Julian,
and sho bowed and smiled graciously. "And bo you have come Into your
own, Vane? And lt feels strange—
at first?"
"It does, Lady Fanworthy," said
Vane, as he took the scat beside her
to which she had motioned him,
"And you are going to aettle
down, to be a model landlord and a
pattorn peer?'*.
"No," said Vane. "Part's already
filled," and he looked towards Lord
Fanworthy, who had gono to the
next room to show Julian the view.
"Godfrey will be glad to have you
at the Court," said hor ladyship.
"lie was always fond ol you. And
I— So that ts Julian Shore." H,r
voico scarcely dropped, but It was
so soft as to be Inaudible to tho
others. "A handsome young man;
darker than the Mannerings usually
"Yes; he's quite an Adonis," eald
Vane. "And an oxtromely good follow. I hopo you'll liko him. We aro
groat friends already, though wo only met a day or two ago."
"I will see," she said, with a
swift, scorching glance at Julian.
"But I want to talk about you.
Where have you been? Nol are you
well, happy. Vane?"
His eyes fell before her brilliant
ones which seemed to reach his sadly
tried heart.
"Fit as a fiddle, my dear lady; almost as fit as Lord Fanworthy there.
And I am so glad to see you looking
so well. Not a day older."
Sho raised her lovel eyebrows.
"Why should I be? My dear Vane, at
my age, women grow younger, nowadays. Where havo you been not to
know that! And you aro well and—
Vano's eyes dropped, then ho raised
them, but with an effort, for this old
lady was a difficult one to decoivo.
"As happy as 1 deserve," he said,
"And you hnve been travelling a
great deal, and, if rumor speaks tho
truth, have had sonic adventures."
Vane nodded, bis lips tightening.
"Yes," he said, "all sorts of adventures. You still stick to your knitting,  I see,  Lady  Fanworthy."
It was enough for her; and she
asked no more questions.
"Here's tho tea," she said, as the
butler brought It in. "But, of course,
you'll stay to dinner. Godfrey shall
send  for your things—"
But Vane declined. "I've ordered
dinner nt the Court," he snld, "antl
Prance would break his heart lf
Ho  didn't     turn    on  tnls   the   first
She nodded approvingly. "Quito
right,  Vane."
"But, see," he said; "it will be
rather ' lonely for us two bachelors.
Now, if you want to be as kind as
you always used to be, you bring
Lord  Fanworthy to dine with ue!"
She did not hesitate a moment.
"yes," she suid,  smoothly.
The other two men came to the
tea-table and her ladyship conversed
with-Julian. She asked no questions, but almost unconsciously he
found himself telling her that he was
unmarried, that he lived alone, that
he had no profession and wns content
with a small income; Indeed, nearly
all the details which another person
would only have extracted by a scries of categorical questions; and he
did not make the discovery until the
two young men were going home in
the landau.
"A wonderful womnn!" Vane remarked. "Vou admired her, of
course? She used to Ijo a great
beauty; and she is us clever as she
is beautiful."
"Yes; sho'S clever," suid Julian,
absently, us lie reflocted on the way
in which her ladyship hail "pumped"
"Yes; she used to play an important part in the political world,"
Vane went on. "Kept whal used to

both were—and I like her, naturally.
I don't know any one to whom I'd

"I am suro I shall," said Julian,
with an admirably feigned tone of

What a Travelled Scotsman Says of
tie  Transconti ,«• _■ .1   Lin*.
Alex. McOwen, writing in the Winnipeg Free Press, says:—
It Is perhaps a healthy sign suggestive of a progressive spirit, but
the western Canadian is disposed to
he extremely critical of his governments, his institutions and his great
corporations. He regards almost as
a heritage, for instance his right to
abuse the Canadian Pacific Railway
Co. for its iniquities of one sort and
another, but more especially its
excessive freight rates. These appeal to young and old alike and the
theme of them is ever fresh and tlie
outcry against them made with the
utmost sincerity of conviction. Robert Burns, the Scottish bard, prays
that a higher power may endow us
us with the gift of seeing ourselves
as others see us, and perhaps it
would be interesting for readers of
tlie Free Press to know how our
greatest railway company is regarded Iu the old country. When in
Scotland at the beginning of this
year, on immigration business, my
attention was directed to a complaint
in tbe Scotsman newspaper, the nat
ional organ of the country. It was
written by a well-known cattle breeder, a landed proprietor, near the
town of Oban on the west coast of
Scotland. In his letter this gentleman complained that a steer could
be purchased at Calgary and the C.P.
It. would haul it to St. John, N.B., a
distance of 1)000 miles, tranship it to
one of their ocean steamers and carry
it over sea another 3000 miles. landing
it in Liverpool" cheaper than he could
ship a beast by freight from Oban
to London. You can depend that
Ihis gentleman did not think the'
Canadian farmer had much to complain about. In comparison with his
own   grievances.
Another case was brought under
niy notice by Mr. W. Haxton of Dundee, of the firm of Fleming Haxton,
Shipping agents, through whose
hands thousands of emigrants for
Manitoba and the Northwest have
passed within the last ton or twelve
years. " That Canadian Pacific of
yours is a marvel for low rates." said
Mr. Haxton to me one day. I ventured to remark that If he were on
the other side he would hear more
about It. "Oh! it'll be the old story,"
he said pawkly, "A prophet is always
without,  honor  in   his  own   country."
Ho then laid before mo Ihe details
of n comparison he had just made
between Home and Canadian rates.
Two years ago a family hnd passed
through his hands from Forfarshire
and gone to Brandon, A year after
settling there, they sent home for
some household effects that had been
left behind. The weight wns somewhere nbout two tons. The goods'
wero shipped from (llnseow to Hall-
fax and tlivnce to Brandon. Out of
curiosity, 'Mr. Haxton asked a quotation for the same weight of material from Dundee to London nnd wns
more than astonished to find thai Hie
difference was a shilling In favor of
tho British consignment. Now, Mr.
Hnxton Is a man doing business. In
the course of the year, with agents
of almost every rnilwny system In the
world, nnd yet out of nU these he
wns disposed to regard the C.P.R. as
"a marvel."
It hns been mv own privilege, at
one time or another, to travel over
nearly every one of the railways of
Britain. I hnve also sampled, at odd
times, those of Germany, France and
Belgium, but nowhere In these countries can one enjoy the same
comfort In travelling as ono may do
on Ihe C.P.R. system. The same regard for the comfort of Its passengers is displayed on the company's
ocean-going slenmers, nnd I hid fair
to say that If two or three fast boats
were added to the Atlantic fleet the
line would soon become the most
popular between Britain and the
It seems to me that during Its hls-
torv the policy of the company has
been to promote the development of
Ihe West, first by encouraging production and again by providing for
that produce being placed on the
world's markets on terms which will
permit of Us holding its own. I do
not suggest that this has been undertaken as a philanthropic enterprise.
The company is out for profit, like
overy other business organization,
but as a factor In the marvellous development of the West, the master
minds whleh inauguarated and successfully If profitably carried out,
the details of this policy have earned
in my estimation no littlo measure
of honor. When ono reflects that
billions of dollars are Invested ln
railroads In America which are not
earning a cent of dividend for the
Investors, one can understand the
full meaning of what the Hon. Clifford Slfton said in as many words at
the monster meeting at Brnndon last
October, that the success of the C.P.
II. had not so much depended upon
the fact thnt they had no opposition,
but on n fact more creditable to its
ofllclals that lt was ono of the bost
managed railroads In the world.

Throwing caul*,
Throwing a bull or a cow not carrying a calf Is not a difficult task and
can be dor.e In such a manner that
the animal will not be Injured ln tna
least and ls so simple that any one
need not be afraid to attempt lt. The
throwing device ia merely a rope tied
about the hoi-ns or neck or to a halter,
given a half hitch about the neck, a
second half hitch, but direction of
rope reversed, about the heart girth,
and a third half hitch Just in front of
the hook points or hip bones. One man
stands near the animal's head to hold
the halter, and a second grasps the
rope and pulls backward, either to one
aide or the other, according to whether
the rope is 'right or left hitch. The
animal stands still, acts as though he
were surprised, but soon easily rolls
over to his side. To hold him securely attach ropes to front and rear feet,
stretch and fasten.—American Cultivator.

Poultry raising pays.
People who tell you that there is no
money in raising chicks may have tried
to make money iu the business by using
setting hens as hatchers, and they
might as well have tried to locate a
gold mine in the cabbage patch. The''
business of a hen is—to lay eggs. As
a hatcher and brooder she is outclassed. That's the business of the
Chatham Incubator and Brooder, and
they do it perfectly and successfully.
The poultry business, properly conducted, pays far better than any other
business for the amount of time and
money invested.
Thousands of poultry-raisers—men
and women all over Canada and the
United States—have proved to the!.-
satisfaction that it is pro liable to raise
chicks with the

The Chatham Incubator and Brooder
Is simple as well as scientific in construction—a woman or girl can operate
the machine in their leisure moments.

was one of tbe early pioneers of tht
old Bathurst district as that part ot
Ontario was called. His maternal
grandfather fought Under Nelson at
Trafalgar which may account to
some extent for the fighting blood
very evident in the make-up of the
grandson descendent. Educated at
the public school of his native place,
he remained on his father's farm until 1876 when he Joined the staff of
the Montreal Star with which he remained until 1879 when he became
one of the editorial staff of the Toronto Globe remaining with that paper until 1882.
The Canadian west with Its manifold opportunities to the young and
ambitious was beginning that development which has continued wltb
such magnitude to the present time
and Mr. Richardson recognized his
chance. He came to Winnipeg lu
1882. He was associated with J. H
Preston, now M.P.P. In the Ontario
legislative assembly, of Brantford
Ontario, in the publication of th(
Daily Sun in Winnipeg from 1S86 to
1889, when with D. 1/. Mclntyre he

While Mr. Richardson has the gift
of making sincere political friends
he also has the qualities that make
hitter political enemies and in 1901
he was the only member against
whom the petition to unseat was
pressed. Unseated, owing to the
united actions of both political par
ties us is contended by Mr. Richard
son's friends, he was defeated in 190-
in the consequent bye-election by the
presence of a third candidate in the
contest, placed there to further his
possible defeat. Mr. Richardson,
however, cayled evory English speaking  district ^n the  constituency.
During Mr. Richardson's term as
member of parliament he took a prominent position in the debates and
was a recognized authority on West

house. An ardent believer in Provincial rights particularly as regards ed

TILL       DODD'S      KIDNEY       PILLS
Now He's Perfectly Healthy and Able
to    Work—Gives   all   the  Credit to
the   Great   Canadian   Kidney   Remedy.
Wapella, Sask., Feb. 12—(Special.)
—Cured of Kidney Dlsense that laid
him up for over a year, Mr. Georg'a'
Bartlcmun, a well known man here,
is loud In his praises of Dodd's Kidney Pills, for to them and noth-;
Ing else he claims he owes his cure.
"Yes, I had Kidney Trouble," Mr.
Bartleman says, "l had pains In my
back and other parts of my body and
though the doctor did what ho could
for mo I grew worse until I was unable to work.
"Then I started to take Dodd's Kidney Pills, and I took tliem nil winter
and summer while I was unable to
work. I took in all twelve boxes,
and now I am perfectly healthy. My
pains are all gone and I am able to
work. 1 heartily recommend Doild's
Kidney Pills to all sufferers from
Kidney Disease.
Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure
the Kidneys. Heallhy Kidneys strain
all Impurities, all seeds of disease,
out of the blood. That's why Dodd's
Kidney Pills cure such a wide range
of discuses Including Bright's Disease,
Rheumatism   and   Urinary   Troubles.
If you enquire Into the cause of
sickness, pain and suffering you will
find that fully nine-tenths of lt results from derangements of the liver,
kidneys and bowels.
This was the truth ^arrived at by
Dr. Chase when he began experiments which led to the discovery of
Dr. Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills.
The liver and kidneys are intimately related as filters of the blood, and
the regularity of the bowels depends
on the healthful  action of the liver.
Hence lt happens that when the
liver and kidneys are made healthy
and vigorous by the Influence of Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills such diseases as biliousness, liver complaint,
kidney disease, Indigestion and constipation soon  entirely disappear.
With the liver and kidneys in
healthful working order, the purity
of the blood Is ensured and you are
protected  against colds,  fevers   nnd
contagious   and   lufectldus   diseases.
As a family medicine to promptly
cure the most common ills of life
there is no preparation that can be
compared with Dr. Chase's Kldney-
Llver fll.s. in every neighborhood
there are people who have proven the
merit of this great medicine. Ask
Mr. Wm. Cook, Moosomin Sask.,
writes:—"I have been taking Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and must
say they have done me a lot of good.
I have been a great sufferer from diabetes and I can say to all who are
afflicted with this disease that Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills will do
them good. I cannot say that I am
entirely cured but I have been greatly benefitted  by this medicine."

Good Form N*o*asarr—Simple Mean*
of Acquiring It.
Speaking of the fact that fashion bns
been rather slow iu adopting tho empire style In dress, an authority on the
human figure says lt ls clearly evident
that "what bus kept the empire vogue
from attracting general approval hitherto has been a stupid Indifference to
figure. Tho presumption was that nothing mattered beneath loose folds,
whereas, on tlio contrary, everything
depended on tho perfection of the figure."
A Good Carriage.
Tbo woman whojins a bud figure
and desires to Improve It hns It greatly
In her own power to do so. Setting
aside the question of diet entirely, although It Is so Important a factor ln
both good complexions nnd figures, one
must begin with the most simple rules.
A woman who stands badly will never
look well. She must contract the habit
knowingly, both ln staudlng and walking, of keeping tlie stomach well In, the
chest well forward and expanded, tho
shoulders back and tlie bead poised at
a slightly raised yet comfortable angle,
which will not allow tlie chin to fall
upon tbo neck. There Is also the question of breathing.
Right Breathlna:.
Deep breathing exercises should be
Included ln tbe physical education of .
every child who Is carefully and con- !
sclentiously brought up.   One thing ls
certnln — no womun cun  develop ber
chest    naturally    without    accurato
breathing.   In order to practice lt pfop- j
erly  the head  must  be thrown back,
tlie shoulders kept square and a deep
breath taken very slowly through the
nose until the lungs are filled with air.
Thore Is no more effectual aid to beauty than deep breutblng, for lt has the
most remarkable effect on the Internal
organs, aud therefor* on th* general i
appearance. 1

Purpose and Characteristic* of Thl.
Or-.an of the Bivalve.
Persons who have seen soft shell
clams as they lay In a pan lu the kitchen preparatory to being cooked scarcely recognize them ln tbelr natural state.
Many of us wbo bave seen clams know
tbat they have "necks," but are Ignorant of the purpose and character-
Wi- of this attachment As tbey lie
on tbo ground tbey are far from being
closo mouthed. In fact, they are seldom to be seen with the shell closed.
From one end projects the "neck,"
which may be three times as long us
the shell when fully extended. Tbls
fact In case tho "neck" Is stretched
out, makes one wonder how such a
length can be contracted Into such a
small space and how much remains ln
the shell after the "neck" bas been
elongated. This is tho astonishing characteristic of the soft shelled clam and
tbe one that makes him unrecognizable
to so many people. One of the clams,
for Instance, ls three Inches long. His
"neck" when extended ls possibly eight
or nine Inches long and as large around
as a man's middle finger. ,
As every one knows, the clam when
in its native haunts ls to be found several Inches below the surface of the
sand. He bas to be dug up when discovered by the little spurts of water
which the clam beneath throws up
when disturbed.
This "neck" connects the clam with
his food supply iu the water above,
ln the "neck" are parallel tubes.
Tlirough one tube tbe clam sucks In a
quantity of water. From the water he
absorbs whatever nourishment It may
contain and then expels the water
through the otber tube.
Oue niuy wonder how the clam gets
Into the sand or mud. At the end opposite the "neck" may be seen nn ap-
pendnge resembling a turtle's tall in
shape and called a foot It ls with this
foot that be digs bis way downward.

How the  Chinese  Attract  and  Then
Destroy EvU Spirits.
Recently the Chinese residents of the
Straits Settlements had a great procession, called "wnngkang," to get rid of
a large accumulation of evil spirits,
says a writer In the Chicago News.
Ceremonies of this sort nre beld by
the Chinese about once lu fifteen years.
The plan is to construct a richly decorated junk, fill it wilh dainty eatables,
money, live animals, incense and other
tempting things and then to take It
about the city with music and appropriate singing and great pomp generally.
This causes tlie evil spirits to come
out to see what is going on. Beholding the splendid junk and its rare contents, they crowd Inside. Demons of
sickness are especially sought for and
After the junk has been sufficiently
paraded so that it is chock full of demons, lt ls burned and the evil spirits
perish. Formerly the junk was Bet
adrift on the ocean, but sometimes ii
was stranded on sonic Island or other,
causing great suffering to the inhabitants thus exposed to the attacks of
the marooned spirits. So now the junk
is burned at the close of each ceremony
of tbe sort
The Chinese ln tbo vicinity of Singapore spent about $10,000 ln getting rid
of tbelr demons tliis fall.

Many persons declare tlint high heeled shiics are not only injurious to the
health, but that tbey really ruin the
shape of the foot. What...would H
woman or 11 youu;.- girl with n dainty,
high-arched instep wear if she couldn't
get a shoe shaped like her foot? It is
obvious that she oould not wear a low
heeled, flat soled boot withont not only
being uuconiforta'nle, bnt actually having pain, for the pressure nn the instep
and arch would be loo much. In the
same way a girl with a comparatively
low instep and flat foot would be really
torturing herself if she wore high heeled
shoes with arched insteps.
On exactly the same principle as tho
lii;li and low heels, some can wear soles
of leather as thick ns men, while ntlier'i"
would be in agony with any but a Chin,
almost paper-like sole. This, however,

fact some timo ago. Dr. I'lcrcc, ol Buffalo,
N. Y., "took time by the forelock," as It
were, and published broadcast all the
Ingredients of which his popular medicines arc composed. Thus he has completely forestalled all harping critics and
sll opposiliou that, might otherwise be
tirgoil against his medicines, because they
are now ok known composition. Further—ore, from the formula printed on
every bottle wrapper, it will lie seen that
these medicines contain no alcohol or
otber hablt-fprm!ng drills. Neither do
they contain any narcotics or injurious
agents, their ingredients being purely
vegetable, tsxtracted from tho roots of
medicinal plants found growing In the
depths of our American forests and of
well recognized curative virtues.
