"It Is not Master Brandon wbo
should sue for pardon," responded the
princess. "It ls I who was wrong. I
blush for what I did and said. Forgive
me, sir, and let us start anew." At this
she stepped up to Brandon and offered
him ber band, which he, dropping to
his knee, kissed most gallantly.
"Your highness, you can well afford
to offend whon you have so sweet and
gracious a talent for making amends.
'A wrong acknowledged,' as some ono
""Four highness, you can well afford to
bas said, 'becomes an obligation.'" He
looked straight Into the girl's eyes us
be said this, and his gaze wns altogether too strong for her, so the lashes fell.
She flushed and said, with a smile that
brought the dimples:
"I thank you. That Is a real compliment" Then laughingly: "Much better
than extravagant comments on one's
skin and eyes and hair. We are going
to the queen at the marble landing.
Will yop walk with us, sir?" And they
strolled away together, while the other
girls followed in a whispering, laughing group.
Was there ever so glorious a calm
after such a storm?
"Then' those mythological compliments," continued Mary. "Don't you
dislike them?"
"I can't say that I hnve ever received
many, none that 1 recall," replied Brandon, wltlj a perfectly straight face, but
with a smile trying its best to break
out      <
"Oh, j>qu have not? Well, how would
you like to have somebody always telling you, that Apollo wub humpbacked
and misshapen compared with you;
lhat Efldyrnlon would have covered his
face had he but seen yours, and bo on?"
"I don't know, but I think I should
like It from some persons," ho replied,
looking ever so Innocent.
This savored of familiarity after so
brief an acquaintance and .caused the
princess to glance up in Blight surprise,
but only' for tbu Instant for his Innocent look disarmed her.
"I have a mind to see," she returned,
laughing and throwing her head back
as she looked, up nt blm out of the corner ot her'lUBtroiis eyes. "But I will
pny you a'better compliment. I positively thank you for the rebuke. I do
many things like that, for which I am
always sorry. Oh, you don't know how
difficult lt is to be a good princess!"
And she shook her hend with a gathering of little trouble wrinkles In her
forehead, ns much ns to sny, "There Is
no getUng away from lt, though." Then
sho breathed a soft little Big! of tribulation as tbey wnlked on.
"I know lt must be a task to be good
when everybody flatters even one's
shortcomings," said Brandon and then
continued in a wuy that, I nm free to
confess, wns something priggish: "It Is
almost Impossible for us to see our
own faults even when others are kind
enough to point them out, for they nre
right ugly things nnd unpleasant to
look upon. But, lacking thoso outside
monitors, one must all the more cultivate the habit of constant lulooklug
and self exnmlnut'011. If we tire only
brave enough to confront our faults
and look them ln the fuce, ugly as tbey
nre, we shall be sure to overcome the
worst of them. A striving toward good
will achlevo at least u part of it."
"Oh!" returned tho princess. "But
what Is good nnd what is wrong? So
often wo cannot tell them apart until
we look back at what wo havu done, I
and then It ls all too lute. I truly wish
to be good more than I desire nuythlug
elso In the world. I am so Ignorant and
helpless and hnvo such strong Inclinations to do wrong that Bonietlmus I
seem to bo almost nil wrong. Tho
priests suy so much, hut tell us so little.
They talk about St. Peter and St. Paul
and a host of other saints and holy fathers and what mils, but full to tell us
what we need every moment of our
lives; that ls, how to know tlio right
when wo see lt, and how to do lt; aud
how to know tbo wrong and how to
avoid lt They oek ub to believe so
much and Insist thnt fnlth ls the sum
of vlrtuo and tho lack of lt the sum of
sin, tbat to faith all things nre added,
but we might believo every syllable of
their wholo disturbing creed nnd then
spoil lt all through blind Ignorunco of
what ls right and what ls wrong."
"As to knowing right and wrong,"
replied Brandon, "I think I can give
you a rule which, although lt may not
cover tho whole ground, ls excellent
for everyday use. It Is this, Whatever
makes others unhappy is wrong, whatever makes tho world happier ia good.
Ae to. how we are nlwnys to do this I
cannot tell you. One has to learn that
by trying. We cnn but try, and lf wo
fall altogether there Is Btlll virtue lu
every futile effort toward the right."
Mary bent her head us she walked
along In thought
"What you have snid Is the only approach to a rule for knowing and doing
the right I have ever heard. Now
what do you think of me as a flatterer?
But It will do no good. The bad la In
tne too strong. It nlways doea itself be
fore I can apply any rule or oven realize what Is' coining." And again she
shook her head, with a bewitching little look of trouble.
"Pardon me, your highness, but there
Is no bad ln you. It hns been put on
you by others and is all on the outside.
There Is none of it In your heart ut all.
That evil which you think .cornea out
of you simply falls from you. Your
henrt ls ull right or I huve greatly misjudged you." He was treating her almost us if she wero a child.
"I fenr, Master Brandon, you ure the
nost adroit Ilntterer of all," Bald Mary,
slinking her head and looking up ut
him with n side glance, "People have
deluged mo with ull kinds of flattery—
I hnvo different sorts listed und labeled
— but no ono has ever gono to tho extravagant length of calling mc good.
Perhaps they think I do not care for
that but I llko it best. I don't like the
.thors at all. If I am benutlful or not,
't ls us God mude me, aud I have nothing to do with It and desire no credit,
hut lf I could only be good lt might be
my own doing perhaps, aud I ought to
have praise. I wonder If there is renlly
und truly uny-good ln me und If you
have read me nrlght." Then, looking
up at him with a touch of consternation, "Or are you laughing at mc?"
Brandon wisely let the last sugges-
'Jou puss unnoticed.
"I nm sure thnt I am right You
hnve glorious capacities for good, but,
altts, corresponding possibilities for
evil. It will eventually all depend upon
the man you marry, ne can make out
of you a perfect womun or the reverse."
Aguln there waB tho surprised expression in Mary's fuce, but Bruudou's serious look disarmed her.
"I fear you are right, as to the reverse
at any rate, and tho worst of it ls I
shall never bo able to choose a man to
help mc, but Bhnll soouer or later bo
compelled to marry the creature who
will pay the greatest price."
"God forbid!" said Brandon reverently.
They were growing rather serious, so
Mary turned the conversation again
Into the laughing mood nnd said, with
a half sigh: "Oh, I hope you are right
about tho possibilities for good, but
you do not know. Wult until you have
seen more of me."
"I certainly hopo I shall not havo
long to wait."
Tho surprised eyes agnlh glanced
quickly up to tlie serloifs face, but the
answer came: "That you shall not. But
here is the queen, and I suppose we
must have the benediction." Brandon
understood her hint, that the preaching
was over, and, hiking lt for his dismissal, plnyfully lifted his bunds in imltn-
tlon of the old bishop of Canterbury
and murmured the first line of the Lnt-
In benediction. Then they both laughed
and courtesled, nnd. Brandon wulkod
LAUGHED heartily when Jnne
told mc of the tilt between
Brandon and Princess Mary,
the latter of whom was ln tho
habit of saying unkind things and beiug thanked for them.
Brandon wns tho wrong man to say
them to, as Mary learned. Ho wns not
hot tempered—In fact, Just the reverse
—but he wus the lust man to brook un
affront nnd the quickest to resent ln a
cool headed, dangerous way an Intentional offense.
He respected himself and mado others do the same, or seem to do so nt

an Inordinate desire for those qualities

Bult of conscious demerit, but he knew

bravo to temerity, with a reckless disregard of consequences, which might
have been dangerous bad lt not been

I was not surprised when I henrd of
the encounter, for I knew enough of
him to be sure that Mary's high handedness would meet ils counterpart iu my
cool friend Brandon. It was, however,
nn iiiii'iii-iiiiniio victory, and whnt ull
Mary's beauty and brightness would
havu failed to do her honest, open acknowledgment of wrong, following so
quickly upon the heels of her fnult, uc-
coiiiplished easily. It drew him within

Brandon and most others—he would be
slow to love, but when love should once
fairly take root In his lnteuse nature he
would uot do to trifle with.
The night after the meeting Mary
cuddled up to Jaue, who slept with her,
and whispered, half bashfully:
"Tell me nil about Brandon. I am
interested in him. I believe if I knew
more persons like him I should be a
better girl, notwithstanding he ls one
of the boldest men I ever knew. Ho
says anything he wishes and, with nil
his modest manner, is na cool with me
as if I were a burgher's daughter. HIb
modesty ls all on the outside, but it is
pretty, and pretty things must be on
the outside to be useful. I wonder If
Judson thought him modest."   .
Jane talked of Brandon to Mary, who
was In an cxcelleut humor, until the
girls fell asleep.
When Jane told me of this, I became
frightened, for the surest way to uuy
woman's henrt Is to convince her thnt
you make her better nnd arouse Iu her
breast purer Impulses and higher aspirations. It would lie bad enough should
Brandon fall In love with the princess,
which was almost sure to happen,
but for them to full in love with ench
other meant Brandon's head upon the
block and Mary's henrt bruised, broken
nnd empty for life. Her strong nnturc,
tilled to the brim wltb Intent passion,
wns the stuff of which love makes a
conflagration that burnB to destruction, and should she learn to love Brandon Bhe would move heaven aud earth
to possess him.
She whose every desire from childhood up had been gratified, whose
every wliim seemed to ber a pura-
nioiint necessity, would stop at nothing when the dearest wish n womuu's
heart cun coin was to be gained or lost.
Brandon's element of prudence might
help him and might forestull nny effort on his pnrt to win ber, but Mary
had never heard of prudence, and
man's caution nvnlls but little when
set ngninst woman's during. In case
they both should love they wore sure
to try for each other and In trying were
equally sure to find ruin and desolation.
A few evenings nfter this I met the
princess In the queen's drawing room.
She beckoned me to her and, resting
her elbowB on the top of n cublnet, her
chlu lu her hands, said: "I met your
friend, Captnln Brandon, a auy or iwo
ago.   Did he tell you?"
"No," I answered. "Jane told me.
but he has not mentioned lt."
It wns true Brandon bad not said a
word of the matter, nnd I had not
spoken of it either. I wanted to see
how long he would remain silent concerning nu adventure thnt would hnve
set most men of the court boasting at
n great rate. To huve a tilt with the
ever victorious Mury and to come off
victor was enough, I think, to loosen
any tongue less given to bragging than
"So," continued Mary, evidently
somewhat piqued, "he did not think his

It too. Now, what do you think of this

boast about hnving tho better of me.
After nil, there ls more virtue lu his sl-

threw buck her hend nnd clapped ber
bands and laughed with the most contagious little ripple you ever henrd. She
seemed uot to grieve over her defeat,
but dimpled us though It were a huge

pleased her thnn otherwise. Victory

"What do I think of my uew friend?"

Robert J. C. Stead,
Cartwrigh., Man.
The November day had been dull
and uneventful, and the office of the
Telegraph as much' a-drowse as the
home of a modern dally may be. Not
an Item In the despatches would warrant a double-column head, and the
telegraph editor opined that the boys
of the Associated Press had got "religion." Copy that bad been side-tracked weeks ago wajfjeaded out under
heavy tops, and the locals were pad-
dine their dl-h-water stories shamelessly. The ad-man had run ln a full-
page "quack" off-date on his own re
sponslbillty, and was willing to take
chances on a kick.   It was a dull day.
Aleck McLean, editor and principal
owner of the Dally Telegraph, buttoned his overcoat snugly at the first
rumble of the preBS, pocketed a copy
at tho mailing counter, and Btepped
into the street, well content with the
prospect of a long evening at home.
But he had not gone a dozen paces ere
the sixth sense of his newspaper instinct became aware that there was
something afoot in tho mental atmosphere. Little knots of men stood
about, conversing excitedly, or studying an evening paper. Those who
walked, walked briskly, as lf agitated
by the Import of something unusual.
Suddenly a number of boys from the
office of the Eveuing News scattered
through the street, shouting lustily
"SpecialI. Extra! All about th' great
murder- Evenin' News! Only paper
has it! Ex-tr-a-a! Ex-tr-a-a!"
McLean seized a copy from the nearest boy and spread it out before him,
Ignoring In his excitement the urchin's
vigorous demands for payment. Plastered over its front page, with a seven-
column heading, his rival sheet bore
the Information of the newsiest crime
the city had afforded ln half a dozen
years. And Just as he held the paper
at arm's length the rival editor came
up, smiled knowingly, and passed on.
Crumpling the sheet In his hand,
McLean rushed for the office of the
Daily Telegraph, nor paused for breath
or counsel until he burst Into the
quarters of the astonished reporters.
"Gentlemen," said he, with a calm
ness of speech that was in remarkable
contrast with his agitated appearance,
"I Just dropped in to remark that if
any of you nre interested in the eventB
of the city you had better buy a copy
of the Evening News before going to

"Did you ever hear aboui, Horace

story-teller of the gang, "and the—"
"Certainly, we all know the incident," Interrupted Hughes.
Just then the telephone bell rang,
and the Evening News Inquired tenderly If they were awake yet
"Just had a nightmare," replied
Morrison. "Who pumped you full of

us too, but "

"I net your friend. Did lie tell yottt"
henrt upon tho sleeve. Then ho hnd
thnt strong vein of prudence and caution which, In view of Mary's unuttnln-
nblenesB, would probably come to his
help. But never wua mnn's henrt strong
enough to resist Mary Tudor's smile
for long.
That piece of country, lying between
Vi ;irninil on the main line of the Canadian Northern Railway, might Justly
bo designated as tho "Sportsman's
Paradise," tho woods abounding with
mooso, otter, lynx, whilst the

most picturesque and resourceful forest regions of North America, the
Central Luke Park Region of tho Continent. Down amongst the pine trees

country will bo re-opened by the Canadian Northern, when a superb, solid

"Every man skins his own skunk,'

Next morning the assignment book
contained tho following notice: "Fani
Ily prayers ln Mr. McLean's office at 10
a. m."
The reporters, openly defiant or in
different, but Inwardly much concern
ed, fyled into the chief's office at the
appointed time. ...i-Loan was grave,
but dispassionate. He explained how
keenly he felt the disgrace of yesterday and pictured vividly the gloating
of the News. Never before had he
suffered such Ignominy; never again
must lt occur. He had Intended to
revise his whole staff, but had reconsidered It—for the present. He had a
new Idea. Ho would pay ono hundred
dollars cash to the reporter furnishing tho next local murder story,—provided _ney scooped the News. That
was all.
Weeks went by, and anything that
could suggest a suspicion to the most
fantastic imagination was fully investigated. Morrison spent his substance
ln refreshing the police force, in exchange or a guarantee of a straight
tip on the next murderous event.
Temple made moonlight sorties far
Into the country. Graham cultivated
the acquaintance of tho tough characters of tho city. Barker bribed thn
reportorlal force of the News to keep
mum on the next scrapo. But the
city was disgracefully law abiding,
and nothing worse than the usual
routine of drunks and vagrants disturbed the solemn atmosphere of the
police court.
But most remarkable of all had
been the actions of Charlie Hughes.
Shortly aftor the Interview with the
chief he had mude the acquaintance of
one Basil Murdoch, an old man of
doubtful nationality, and reported to
be a miser. Basil-existed ln a very
disreputable den ln the midst of tlie
toughest part ef the city, and night
after night he and Hughes rendered
the air discordant with their drunken
caterwaullngs. In those orgies ■ the
reporter was merely an actor, as he
had too much head to surrender it to
alcohol; but Basil drank best on Char-
He's encouragement, and Basil drank
only at Charlie's expense,—and whnt
was a roistering song or two lf It
made happy the heart of an old man?
One night after their acquaintance
had ripened sufficiently Charlie approached his purpose.
"You say you are hard up, Uncle?"
he ventured.
"Aye, hard It ls, boy," was the reply.
"Afore yo took pity o' me many the
day Ah sat with neither bite nor Bup.
And what'B an old man in this world?
Well would lt be rid o' me."
"Have you no friends anywhere?"
"Well, now, as Ah might say, Ah
havo a brothor ln Sheecago.   Him Ah
haven't seen for years, bein' without
the price o' travel,    ueed, and it's a
hard world, ot all.   Pass the bottle."
When Basil had refreshed himself
Charlie again spoke.   "I've been thinking of your lonely life ever since I
met you, and lt grew upon me that I
ought to do something foi- you. Folks
say that you are a miser, mat your
tick is lined with bills, but I don't believe a word of lt. I'm going to help
you to visit your brother this Christmas."
Basil looked about him ln a frightened sort of a way and muttered Incoherently. The thought of departure
seemed to fill him with a strange kind
of dread, and the livid blotches of his
face had given way to dull pallor.
Charlie ventured, "Of course, I
would see that your place was properly looked after. I haven't much money
but I could get you a ticket and provide a bit to spend. And Chicago's
the finest plaoe ln the world for a man
with the dough."
"Ah've hearn different from that,"
said the old man dubiously.
"Well, at any rate It's the worst
place ln the world for a man without
the dough." laughed Charlie, "and that
amounts' to the same thing."
It was not until after much argument, in which Charlie—who never
and being there—pictured the attractions of Chicago ln the most glowing
terms, and explained how easy lt
would be, with the help of the city
directory, for Basil to find his brother,
that the old man finally agreed to the
proposal. The night was far spent before every detail had been arranged,
but when at length Charlie arose to
go he said, "Well then, that's all settled. I'll meet you here at ten tomorrow night with twenty dollars.
You can Jump the midnight freight,
going south, and buy a ticket when
they put you off. It's no use paying a
railway company any more than you
have to—lt'B a simple waste of money.
When you get to Chicago hire a lock
box at the postoffice and wire me the
number, nothing more, nothing less—
no name, mind you—and call for your
mall once a day. Follow my directions
and you'll wear diamonds, and I'll
split a pot of money with you when
you get back."
"Seems a mighty quare way to visit
me brother," said Basil, still not
wholly decided.
"It is that," admitted Charlie, "but
folks have strange customs now-a-
days. I'm paying the money, and 1
want you to be up to the times. You
will be my guest, in a sense, and you
must travel in style."
Hughes had to do a Christian Endeavor convention next day, and the
leaden hours dragged through ln dull
monotony. But night found him alert
and active. A number of visits had
to be made to different parts of the
city before his plans were complete,
and the last of these found him at a
poultry dealer's. Here, somewhat to
the surprise of the shopman, he bought
two livei-oosters, which he thrust Into an empty bran sack, and departed
It was snowing a little as ho wended
his way to Basil's hut "A fine night
for my plan, and a fine plan for any
night," he congratulated himself as
he walked. "By George, but I'll set
ten thousand ears tingling before this
timo to-morrow night! Helgho! won't
this take the bulge out of the News?
And the polico department! Oh my
my! the police department!" he repeated in a paroxysm of mirth. "Our
telephone will be hot to-morrow. But
mum's the word, Charlie, mum's the
The roosters were left to nourish
their forebodings at the rear of Basil's
hut, and when Charlie entered he
found the old man waiting. With little
ado he produced a suit of second-hand
clothes, Infinitely better than those
Basil wore, and finally succeeded in
fitting them on the old man's form.
A razor was then produced, and Basil
Informed that he was to be treated to
a shave. To this he Btrenuously objected, but on being convinced that
everybody In Chicago would take him
for a mlBer if he wore a beard, he
submitted to the operation. HIb long
hair wns then Bheared and his figure
generally "slicked" up, and while his
appearance could not yet be described
us respectable, lt was much less disreputable than before. Charlie then
took him to the freight yards, trundled
him Into an empty box-car, tipped a
brakeman a dollar, and hastened back.
Basil's door was locked, but the reporter battered lt ln with a cordwood
stick. Bringing in the captive roosters, he threw back the sheets of the
bed, laid the sack upon it, and with
some difficulty beheaded the unfortunate Inmates. As he did so one of them
escaped from the sack and caromed
about the room, spattering the lloor
and walls with lood, while the red
liquid from the other saturated the
bed of Basil Murdach. With his knife
Charlie then ripped open the tick,
ransacking the straw and littering lt
about the room; later he explored
every nook and cranny ln the building leaving everything in a state of
confusion. At length, returning the
escaped rooster to the sack, he filled
tn alBo a quantity of coal and Basil's
axe, and set forth to drag lt to the
river. The task was no easy one, as he
avoided the open thoroughfares and
made his way by deserted lanes and
tortuous alleys, but at length the white
Ice of the river spread out bofore him
like a mighty sheet. To hack a hole
through the Ice was tho work of a
few minutes, and axe, Back, and contents were swept down Into the sucking blackness. "Now to thy lair, O
murderer!" exclaimed Hughes, and
Bped for home.
"I want the whole front page," said
Hughes to tho chief the following
morning, as he flung a roll of copy on
the desk.
"So did Peruna, but they didn't get
It," quietly answered McLean. "Why
man, what's the matter with you?"
"Read that," answered the reporter
as he Indicated his copy with an air
of Important mystery.
McLean glanced Indifferently at the
scrawl, but be   hadn't read a dozen
words until every sense bristled.
Eagerly his trained eye devoured the
context, and when a score of pages
were scanned he turned to Hughes.
"Is this absolutely straight?"
"Absolutely," said Hughes, without
"I'll Just call the police department."
said the editor, as he reached for the
"Sh-h, don't wake 'em" Interrupted
Charlie. "Let 'em read lt ln the Telegraph. You remember how they used

"Very well," replied the editor. "Is
the News onto this?"
"Not a whisper."
"Then, lf they don't get en there'll
be a cheque for you in the morning.
You may take the day off; you must
have worked all night"
- Not a word of the great sensation
leaked onto the street, and the Telegraph edition was purposely delayed
until the -News was on sale. But as
soon as a copy of the rival sheet had
been obtained and found to contain
nothing but commonplace, the press
was set in motion, and the Evening
Telegraph literally flooded onto the
It was the greatest scoop ever
achieved In the city. It scooped not
only the rival paper, but everybody
else, for not an inkling of the crime
had got afloat until the Telegraph laid
lt bare In plot, and execution, painted

A couple of policemen went to the
scene of the crime, and others set out
In search of Hughes. They found him
at his boarding house.
"You honor me, gentlemen," he re
marked, as the officers were shown
Into his quarters. What ls the charge?'
"Ob—er, you misunderstand. You
see, we are working oa thla murder,
and we thought perhaps you could put
us onto something."
"I can, too. I can put you onto the
fact that you sold the last murder to
the News, and left the Telegraph to
eat mud.    Now, grovel!
"Well, ah—er, that's hardly fair, you
know. Besides, we'll be decent with
At other times Charlie would* have
taken the bint quickly enough, but he
was lord of the situation, and he enjoyed it.
"Gentlemen," he said, with ponderous dignity, "I am not a man to be
bribed. Neither am I a policemi.n. I
am a reporter.   Good evening."
The officers, thus summarily dismissed, strode angrily into the street,
secretly entertaining the belief that a
man who knew so much about the
crime, and would say so little, was not
above suspicion
But the first thing now was the recovery of the body, and a gang of
laborers were set to cut the ice and
drag the river. Several arrests were
mado, but ln each case nothing-of
weight could be advanced against the
suspect, and he was released. Days
wore Into weeks, the river-dragging
was given up as a failure, and the
public wero beginning to forget the
event, when suddenly interest was revived by a despatch in the News that
a man suspected of the murder had
been arrested In Chicago. Great credit
was given the police for the manner
ln which they had followed up a very
slender clue. It seemed that a railway brakeman had admitted "giving
a lift" to a rather tough-looking Individual on the night of the murder. In
the morning he had been put off the
freight, and had bought a ticket for
Chicago at a country station. The
police had thus traced htm to the
great city, where they at length succeeded ln locating him, and were now
bringing their prisoner back to stand
his trial.
Tho effect of this despatch upon
Charlie Hughes ls for my reader to
Imagine. Ho had fancied that every
development could be provided for,
li'it Basil's Inexplicable failure to wire
t.Is box number had compelled him to
leuve everything to fate. And fate
wns turning its stormy side to Hughes.
The day of the preliminary trial
came on, and public Interest ln the
matter, Insidiously fanned by the
newspapers, ran high. Very naturally
the  Telegraph manager had selected
entered Into a lengthy explanation of
tbe chemical composition of blood, and
Illustrated his remarks with many1
charts and plates. He had examined
some of the blood found on the scene
of the tragedy, and unhesitatingly
pronounced it to be that of a human
being advanced ln years.
Basil, who had no lawyer, was then
asked as to whether he had anything
to say In- his own defense. Terror
griped at the old man's heart, and he
swayed where he stood, but fear of
death put words in his mouth, and he
told his story Blmply, eagerly, and with
desperate earnestness, while the court
passed through every stage of Incredulity, wonder, and amasement. "What
Ah say ls the truth." he repeated. "Ah
maself am Basil Murdach, not dead,
but alive. If Ah could find ma young
friend he would prove you that,'an'
save an old man's life. Indeed lf Ah
had knowed his name Ah could have
sent ma telegram, and be would have
Baved me." He ended with a gasp;
then, looking up, his eye scaned the
hushed throng _round him. Row after
row, tier after tier, they passed under
his scrutiny of wild hope and dlspalr.
Gallery after gallery, section after section, he fairly blistered with that huiin.
ted look, down to the magistrate, the
policemen, the lawyers, the men at the
reporter's table. Then suddenly with
a great cry of Joy, he stretched his
arms towards Charlie Hughes. "That's
him, O! that's him!" he cried. He
can tell you all."
All eyes were turned to the reporter,
whose face was tho color of death, and
ln a momnt the magistrate said, "Mr.
Hughes, will you tell the court what
you kuow of this case?"
Charlie roso to his feet, holding fast
to the table. In a moment his composure came back. "What the prisoner says Is true," he said. "He ls Basil
Murdach!" Then .briefly, but fully,
he laid the whole plot bare. "I know
I should'nt have done lt," he concluded, apologetically, "but we had to
scoop the News,' and the roar of laughter that swept through the court-reom
drowned the voice- of the magistrate
au he cried, "The prisoner ls discharged!"
If your blood is weak, if lt Is poor
and watery, a touch of cold or Influenza will settle In your lungs and the.
apparently harmless cough ot to-day
will become the racking consumptive's cough of to-morrow. Weak
blood ls an open Invitation for consumption to lay upon you the hand of
death. The only way to avoid consumption and to strengthen and brace
the whole system ls by enriching your
blood and strengthening your lungs
with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. They
make new, rich, warpi blood. They
add resisting power to the lungs.
They have saved Bcoiee from a
consumptive's grave—not after tho
lungs are hopelessly diseased, but
where taken when the cough first attacks tho enfeebled system. Here is
positive proof. Mrs. Harry Stead, St
Catherines, Ont, says: "A few yeai?
ago I was attacked with lung trouble,
and the doctor, after treating me for
a time, thought I wns going iuto consumption. I grew pale and emaciated,
had no appetite, was troubled with a
hading cough, and I felt that i was
fast gong towards the grave. Neither tho doctor's medicine nor other
medicine that I took seemed to help
mo. Then a good friend urged me to
take Dr. Willlums' Pink Pills. By the
time I had used four boxes lt was
plain that they were helping me. I
began to recover my appetite, and lu
other ways felt better. I took six
boxes more, and was as well as ever,
and had gained ln weight. I believe
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills saved me
from a consumptives grave, aud I
feel very grateful."
Now Dr. Williams' Pink Pills build
up the strength in Just one way—
they actually make new blood. That
ls all they do, but they do it well.
They don't bother with meip symptoms. They won't cure any disease
that Isn't caused by bad blood. But
then, nearly all common diseases
spring from that one cause—anaemia,

A lock clattered sullenly, a heavy door

| Editor and Proprietor of the Alberta
The contribution of Ontario to Western Canada, in men, brains and money,
will be an ever abiding debt.   The
[West will be under obligation to the
[premier province In this regard for all
time.    The obligation ls   .recognized
universally, and honored    gracefully.
Sometimes, lt ls true, the amount of
he debt ls overstated by overzealous
Dntarlons, and this leads, not to resent-
nent, but to   correction.   The    men
(who do this are usually   politicians,
anxious to win a little cheap local or
provincial popularity by lauding to the
(ikies the accomplishments of    their
Dwn people, even at the   expense  of
truth.    But though   Ontario has not
none for the West all that is sometimes
claimed, lt has undoubtedly done much,
end Westerners would    bo   tbe last
eople to belittle the work by which
ilanltoba and the Territories has so
reatly   benefited.   Ontario   farmers
vere the pioneer tillers of the present
feneration of Western tillers of the
poll.    Ontario commercial houses established western branches, and  the
biggest of enterprises now flourishing
|n the west, were founded by Ontar-
ons.   In every department of effort
and activity the same is true, and ln
no department ls Western obligation
fo the older province more distinctly
sserted than ln newspaper work, for
auch more than half the editors and
Iiubljehers of Manitoba and the Territories    are    of    Ontario    birth   and
training.    In new, unpalnted    prairie
■ towns, built to await the coming ol
(he railroad, In mining villages ln the
noimlalns, as well as ln the older and
nore    populous   centres, lt ls much
[■niter than even betting that the edl-
or of the   local   paper ls of Onarlo
Irigln, and the odds are that he learn-
II the case and stuck type on a six

! Among the Ontario newspapermen
low firmly and finally settled In the

Mora and proprietors of the Alberta

|hoemaker is a Fort Elgin boy, and,

. his business right from the bottom,

limes, one of the most respected and
Tillable of eastern local papers, that
Ir. Shoemaker learned the mechanl-
Itl department of tbe publishing busl-
He worked his way   upward
f.tll he knew practically all that was

Bee, and, still desiring to Improve,
turned his eyes to a bigger centre,
faturally, Toronto was the centre of
] traction, and there Mr. Shoemaker
■lent some time, Improving his tech-
Ical knowledge,   and    widening his
Jiperlenco.   When he   relt   himself
fifllclently equipped, his desire to still
Tirthr broaden his knowledge ot the
plnting craft took him still further
held.' He went west.   His first stop-
fng place was Chicago, ln which city
received valuable training ln met-
[.polltan Journalism.   From the Windy
Sty Mr. Shoemaker went further west
[itll he got to the Pacific slope.   He
orked ln some of the best offices ln
•incouver   and   then   headed   east
biln, stopping for a time at Fornle,
IC.   Three years ago he located In
te Canadian West ln June, and last
liar, ln partnership with Mr. D. A.
jcl.enn, he purchased   the   Alberta
lit will thus be seen that Mr. Shoe-
laker is a man of wide experience ln
lie mechanical work of newspaper
loductlon. He has worked In offloea
finglng from auch as thoBe prevailing
th? majority of western oentres up
i the biggest papers published on the
liqtlnent.   On die news writing side
he has fully approved his ability. He
has tbe "nose for news." He has
clearly defined Ideas as to the field
that a country paper should cover, and
In which field lt should be supreme,
and his constant endeavor is to era-
body those Ideas in his own newspaper. The concensus of opinion
among his fellow workers ls that he
has succeeded well In this endeavor.
The Advocate ls a fine example of what
bralas, energy and taste can do ln the
production of a newspaper ln a town
so small that nowhere else than ln
Western Canada would lt be dreamt
that It was possible for lt maintain a
successful paper. But lt does, and
doeB lt well. The editor does his part
—he gets the news, writes It up, always understandably, and sometimes
with grace and humor. He expresses
without prejudice, his opinions on
public questons as they effect local
interests, and his editorial remarks
soon become crystallized Into the prevailing local Judgment. And the merchants and the farmers do their share
to maintain and prosper tho enterprise. The latter all subscribe, and
the former finance the proposition by
their liberal advertising support. The
printer-editor sees that the makeup la |
tasteful and the presswork good, and
thus by the hearty co-operation of all
concerned, a paper ls produced that
Is a weekly wonder to any easterner
knowing the sparseness of Western
population, but unaware of the triumphs accomplished by Western enthusiasm.
The Advocate ls ln many respects,
a sample of the product of Western
conditions. Hitherto lt has been a
success. The prospects are lt will
continue to be one, and greater as tbe
continued inrush of Immigration and
the Increase of population give ltB
proprietors ampler means and wider
scope for their enterprise.

HIGHEST   AWARD,   ST.    LOUIS,   1904.
Judge Sylvester Dana, who was for
some years Judge of the Police Court
ln Concord, N. H., always eudeavored
to smooth over any little difference between persons brought before him.
On one occasion the charge was for
a technical assault, and lt came out
in the course of the evidence that the
parties were neighbors and had been
on the best of terms for some yeans.
"It ls a great pity," said the Judge,
"that old friends, as you seem to
have been, should appear before me
ln such a way. Surely this ls a case
which might be settled out of court?"
"It can't be done, Judge," answered
the plaintiff, moodily. "I thought of
that myself, but the cur won't fight."

Quebec Man Cured His Kidneys With
Dodd's Kidney Pills, and his Lumbago vanished.
Quebec, P. Q., May 29—(Special).—
John Ball, a bricklayer, residing at 67
Little Champlain street, this city, has
added his stateinent to the great mass
of proof that lumbago ls caused by disordered Kidneys, and consequently easily cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills. Mr.
Ball says:
"I was troubled with Lumbago for-
two years. I could not work. I had
to get up at night to urinate so often
that my nest wus broken. I road of
cures by Dodd's Kidney Pills and made
up my mind to try them. After the
first box I could feel and see a change.
Three boxes cured me completely."
Lumbago, like Rheumatism, ls caused by uric acid in the blood. Uric acid
cannot stay in the blood if the Kidneys
are working right. Dodd's Kidney Pills

Thomas Edison the great Inventor,
ls very fond of children. While on u
visit to ew York recently he was
endeavoinig to amuse the six-year-old
son of his host, when tho youngster
asked him to draw an engine for
him. Mr. Edison, promptly set to
work, and, thinking It would plense
the child to have an elaborate design,
he added a couple of extra smokestacks and several imaginnry parts.
When the plan wns complete the boy
took lt and eyed lt critically, then he
turned to tho inventor with disapproval n every feature. "You don't
know much about engnes, do you?" he
said with Infantine frankness. "Engines may have been that way lu
your time, hut they've changed a
wholo lot since then."

Do not be afraid of beiug original,

Why Arellu Water. Are Yellow.
Arctic explorers never tire of telling
how beautifully yellow the waters of
the northern sea appear. To those who
live on the seashore In temperate and
tropical countries the stories of travelers concerning the yellow waters of
Greenland and Iceland are taken with
the proverbial "grain of suit," but scientists have declurcd that the arctic
seas are yellow, and lt was Scores-
by who first explained tlie cause of Its
peculiar color. Perceiving that the waters were of au unusual color, he had
some drawn up aud examined lt wltb
his microscope. To his surprise, be
found that the color was due to tbe
presence of minute animalcules, each
so inconceivably small tbat a single
drop of the wnter contained upward of
20,000 of the little creatures. At that
rate n pint of the water would show
170,000,000, each sporting about In his

Bee. a. Burglar..
It appears that the monarchies of
bees, well governed as they seem to be,
are alllicted nevertheless by organized
criminal classes—sneak thieves and
highway robbers. Some of theso robber
bees go In strong bands to pillage and
are able to storm uud sack a hive. After the slaughter they carry all the provisions hotue. Some colonies of bees
never work; they live entirely by robbery uud murder.
There nre also thieves who creep un-
percelved Into strange hives to steal
honey. If successful they return afterward with hordes of burglar bees,
break opeu the honey safes nnd curry
nwny the contents. But the most curious fuct Is thnt theae bees cun be artificially produced, according to Buch-
ner, by feeding tho larvae upou honey
mixed with brandy.—London Tlt-Blts.

"I hereby certify that I have made a

is due to the Intimate connection

By preserving tho health of those organs, and relieving the system from the
debilitating drains, ulcers nnd Inflammations which sap Its health, "Favorite
