C       Copi/rtirfit, WW, by T. C. llcClun
• irv/«AWWvvw\/Tv.Yvvv-vvv~*
Cynthla_sut before the flickering firelight In the library after Dick had
gone, gazing ruefully at tbe lingless
third linger of her left band, wblcb
might have been diamond bedecked If
she only could have—but, no, she
couldn't. Sbe liked Dick. He was
generous, good looking uud danced so
well. If be were only not so tame!
She bad known, of course, tbat ultimately bis attentions would culminate
lu a proposal, but sbe didn't think It
would come so prematurely.
It was so like Dick to call at such
an absurdly early hour nml blurt It
right out without any preface and then
to leave Immediately without replying
to her kind little offer of friendship.
Dick had uo linessc. Still, Bhe wasn't
sure tbat Bbe liked a man with too
much—like her Uncle Henry, for instance.
As If In obedience to her thoughts
there entered tbe room nt this moment
her uncle. Henry Ormsby. a bachelor
clubman of some thirty and odd years.
"What, Cyuthlal   And no Dick?"
"Dick has come and gone."
"Dick usually comes nnd stays."
"I know It," sbe sighed; "but, you
see, be came once too often."
"^nd that is why he did not stay!"
"Yes, and It's Just as well. Dicks are
soiiietlmes tiresome."
"Not this Dick. He's quite a favorite
with your sex."
"Dick Is?" she asked, with elevated
brows. "Oh, tlie girls like blm been use lie Is agreeable, but none of them
ls very enthnsUisfie over bim!"
"That." replied ber uncle, "is because thoy are used to blm and have
growu up in tbe same town with him.
Then you know this Is such an old
fashioned place — nil paired oil in
steadies. Dick has been yours for so
long tbat none of your girl friends
would think of showing or receiving attention from blm; but let Dick be a
iii'Hf niaii In a new place and be would
be the lion of the town."
'•'Mi's such a stay at home; he'll
never go anywhere," said Cynthia
"1 think he'll have to go soon, because  the Junior partner of the firm
But I received a letter from Ellen
Dni'liley lauding him to the skies and
saying that bad she been heart whole
and fancy free sbe didn't know what
might have happened."
He left Cynthia a prey to Jealousy,
remorse and regret. She wrote Dick
that night telling him how glad she
was to hear be was having so gay a
time and how be must dread the
thought of a return home.
His reply was friendly and gave details of the good times be was having.
"Tomorrow night," he concluded, "ls
Miss Dnruley's wedding, at which I
officiate as one of tbe ushers. The
bridesmaid whom I am to fall in line
wltb after the ceremony has eyes like
that picture of Evangeline you are so
fond of.   I wish you could see her."
Cynthia threw the letter iu the lire.
The next time Henry Ormsby called
he brought a paper from bis pocket.
"1 want to read you about Ellen's
wedding," he said, "Dick is given special mention as a cultured young man
from the east."
"I am sick of the sound of Ellen
Dnruley's name, and Dick's, too!" cried
Cynthia, forgetting Uncle Henry's
"I know," he snld sympathetically,
"It is a bore to hear of people you have
never met." And he discreetly turned
the conversation Into other channels.
Two days Inter Dick .was shown Into
the library where Cynthia was sitting
before the fire as be bnd seen her last.
Her checks flushed at his sudden appearance.
"Why," she exclaimed, "did you expect to return so soon?"
"No," he replied. "They telegraphed
me last night."
He forebore to sny to whom "they"
referred, but Cynthia naturally Inferred
tbat It wns tbe firm. Later that evening Dick met Uncle Henry at the club.
"Say, Ormsby," he said Joyously, "it's
all right."
"Why, my denr boy, wben you are as
old as I you will know tbat nothing
' succeeds like success.    I,told you I'd
I fix lt."
i    "You  got Courtney  to send me to
i Denver."
"And tbe letters and Ellen Darnley's
! wedding did the rest.   I saw tbe fruit
was  ripe,  and  I  telegraphed you  to
come nud pluck lt."

Uncle  Itiistus  had  never enjoyed  a
medical education or spent much time
I In the study of diseases or remedies.
Nevertheless be was often consulted by
| the neighborhood In times of stress.
"1   eert'nly   don'    know   what    I'm
j gwine to do 'bout dese staggering bend-
j aches my wife has." said Mr. Orlando
Clay Jefferson gloomily to L'ncle Kns-
tus In the seclusion of tbe tiny room

Uncle Ksstus bent u keeu glance from
under bis busby eyebrows ut the cross

"Hnbu't you got some kind ob pills
dat'll stop dose staggering headache*
dat keep her from de cook stove?" demanded Mr. Jefferson impatiently.
"No, eah," said Uncle Itiistus Impressively; "dere's no such pills In de
market. But de bes' way to Btop her
staggering headaches would bo to

Dick Is connected with Is quite a

an Important deal for tbe firm."
Thereupon Uncle Henry took bis departure, leaving his young niece to her
The next morning ber heart fluttered
for the llrst time at tlie sight of a note
In Dick's clilrogrnphy. She rend:
Dear  Cynthia—I   find  I  have ta leav*
very unexpectedly for Denver on a business trip.   Please accept my apologlt* for
rny hasty speech and departure last night.
' I fear 1 am not a good loser.   Believe mt
• always, a* you wished, your friend.
Again were Cynthia's feelings mingled nnd conflicting. He had followed
' her wishes and become ber friend, but
the note wns most unsatisfactory. He
had given ber no Denver uddress nor
uny Idea of the length of his absence,
However, possibly sbe might be able to
draw tbat Information from her uncle
without bis suspecting.
she telephoned him the following day

My  friend the postmaster and general storekeeper of Harleyville was sitting ou the front porch of bis establishment   lazily   pulling  small   clouds  of

which were resting against a post on

"Howdy," be said.   "Some warmish,

I nodded, wiping from my face the

back nigh on to twenty years, when

and tuck between 'cm, but Ezra finally
won the match.   Ike was fool enough
to get mad about it, and when bis pa
died, leaving among his other effects a
mortgage on the old Brlggs place where
Ezra wns living, bis parents both being
defunct, he foreclosed tbe thing and
made a regular dickens of a bad mess.
Ezra could have paid lf he'd 1 ad another  six  months,   but   Ike  wouldn't
wait.   Thnt was the  beginning of a
mighty bard time for Ezra.   Nothing

"It's my opinion that Martha wasn't
a real comfortable person to live with

' or less" founded on fact, that Bbe was
sourer than the dregs of vinegar aud

saving Ike for tbe torture; that was
all. Two days before he died he sent
for me, and he says, with a shivery
chuckle, wh«h he'd sent the others out
of the room: 'Old friend, I've got to tell

Deer and  Sleep.
Deer reverse the apparent order of
nature, for tbey sleep In the daytime
and feed at night. How much sleep
they do take ls a matter of contention
even among experienced stalkers. Some
say little, others much. On the whole,
we nre inclined to agree with the former, for lt has to be remembered that
they chew the cud when lying down.
Two most experienced and observant
forester*, tbe one in Argyllshire nnd
the other In Aberdeenshire, thus gave
their opinions: "Deer sleep or rest from
nbout 10 or .1 a. m. to 4 p. m." "Deer
sleep from noon to 5 p. m."
It Is no uncommon occurrence to
come on deer asleep. A stalker In the
Blackmount bad the rare experience
of coming upon a parcel of seven stags,
all sound asleep. A herd was Been to
move in Olenfeshle, but one slug remained behind, lying motionless. On a
careful approach he was found to be
asleep. Perhaps, however, tbe oddest
occurrence of this nature happened In
Braemorc, when a stalking party on
going up to the stag which had Just
been shot found a three-year-old close
to lt fast usleep. In fact, It Is by no
means rare to get within a yard or
two of a sleeping deer.—Scottish Field.

First let us look at some examples
in fur. Here ls a chinchilla toque iu a

white plume falling on tbe hair at the
back and a butterfly bow of cerise velvet tying the fur in front. Tbe shape
also carries out well In other fashionable furs, but one seen In chinchilla on '

looked bath smart and very becoming.
Very charming ls the white fur hat
for afternoon and formal wear. It is
lined underneath with gray silk and
trimmed witb a bouquet of violets and
cerise roses and a cache pclgne of th*
same at the back.

revival of the little bonnet with er-

lightship affected was known as the
Brcaksea, whose station is near Car-.

A few years ago it was necessary
to take lier away and refit her. When
such a change is made another vessel is towed to the station to replace
her temporarily. In this instance a
lightship, vcue-srnt round from Trinity Wharf, a ifistance of fiOO miles.
.She completed her journey ill safety
to tlie Bristol Channel; then, in the
dull light, of the February morning,
her crew observed tonie red-painted

When tliev reached the station they
discovered, lhat the lightship had disappeared, and tbey learned that she
had been_i'iin down and sunk that

There are Numerous Witnesses
of Mrs. Adams' Sickness
and Core.
Sbe Surely Had Bright's Disease
iu its Very Worst
And Jnst as Snrely was Com*

Rink's FallM, Ont., F.b. I.—
(Special.)—Mrs. Tlinmas Adams,
ol (,'ollint.woud, wboac almost miraculous recovery from Blight's
Disease in its worst slaves has
caused a sensation in tbe medical world, is well known In
Burk's Tails. She resided here for
years before removing to Collingwood, and 11 wan while livinjr here
thut she was Stricken witn Ihe terrible disease Hint sweeps so many

Mrs. Adams has many friends still
living in Ilnrk's Palls, and they well
remember tbo Helpless, suffering Invalid, who, in March, 1900, looked as
if her only relief lay iu dealh itself.
'Ihey cun recall how when the dread
words "Bright's llisease" [ell from
the doctor's lips, the report went
around thnt Mrs. Adams' doom was
sealed, thut she would never rise
from the bed of suffering on uhhih
she lay. They cun recall how their
sympathy went out lo Ihe little children  who would soon bo molheriess.
What Cauaed llie Cure.
Then whilo they wailed and
watched for the end, _ graduul improvement came over the Buffere'r.
It was hardly noticeable at first, but
as she grew stronger and was at
as she grew stronger and was at
length able to leave her bed and give
to.her children a mother's care, Ihey
wonderingly asked the cause. Aud
then the truth came out. Mrs. Adams had on the advice of a friend
placed her trust in the old reliable
Kidney remedy, Dodd's Kidney Tills.
Slowly but surely Mrs. Adams'
strength came back till sbe wus going about as if Bright's Disease liud
never held her In Its clutches. Still
the skeptics refused to believe. "It
is only one of the vagaries of the
disease," they said. "11. will come
back with the winler." But winter
came and went. Another summer
and nnother winter passed, and today Mrs. Adams is able to say, "I

T»e   Distance  to   Which   It  Extend*
Above Ihe Earth'* Surface.
One of tbe mauy uncertain elements
In meteorology I* tbe height to which
the earth'* atmosphere extends. In
former day* it — ns taught somewhat
dogmatically that a height exceeding
forty-live miles was unthinkable for a
gas constituted as the air Is. This belief
was shaken by calculations respecting
the altitude of meteors, wblcb became
Incandescent by collision with our atmospheric envelope and were certainly
rendered visible In this way at altitudes of ever seventy miles. Professor
Newcouib deduced from tbe meteor
■bower of Nov. 13, 1807, that the air
must reach to 100 or 110 miles from tbe
earth's surface. Dr. T. J. See of Washington essayed to determine tbe problem by watching tbe disappearance of
blue sky after sunset Accepting Lord
Raylelgb's theory thnt the blue color
of the sky Is due to reflection of sunlight from minute particles of oxygen
and nitrogen In tbe upper layers of
th* atmosphere, Dr. See on a series of
evenings traced with the eye "the last
footsteps of departing day" by the
evanisbment of the final trace of blue
In the firmament. He then computed
from the data of tbe Nautical Almanac
th* position of the sun at tbe time, and
a simple calculation in spherical trigonometry gave tbe approximate height
of the reflecting layer. Tbe mean of
several observations ls 131 miles.
Salt and Ice.
Does salt melt Ice? In this question
there ls but a half truth suggested,
■lnce salt no more melts Ice than Ice
melts salt Heat ls the main agent
whereby a body passes from a solid
to a liquid state. It has beeu well
known, however, for centuries that certain solid bodies when brought together (as here, salt and ice) have such a
chemical affinity for one another—1. e.,
their tendency to combine and melt ls
•o great—that beat is drawn from all
surrounding sources as well as from
tbe store latent In these substances
When thl* la the case they become
chilled and make a freezing mixture,
the temperature dropping till tbe beat
drawn from the two sources—external
and Internal—ls sufficient to keep pace
with tbe rate of melting.
Fahrenheit In 1T02 made use of this
very melting mixture when he secured
what he tbought was absolute col'".
thereby marking tbe freezing point on
his thermometer at 32 degrees.—Answers.

A large and appreciative audience
listened to "The Messiah," (Handel),
by the Choir of Mt. Pleasant Methodist
Church on Friday evening. The text
of this mastepieoe is prepared from
passages from the Bible, treated in a
wonderful series of solos and choruses.
Tb.e work is divided into threo parts
first deals with the advent of Christ,
tho second with His life, sufferings and
death, and the third with doctrines of
faith. The solo parts were beautifully
and artistically given by Miss MoAlpino,
soprano; Mr. Cave, tenor; Miss Bren-
ton, alto; Mr. Gidrou Hieks bass. The
chorus contained about 80 voices and
was well balanced. In the first part the
chorus "All we like sheep have gone
astray," and the grand "Hellelujah" in
the Becond part were rendered in
grand style Mr. G. P. Hicks has
again proven himself to be a Conduotor
of rare ability by the ohorns numbers
given in Friday evening's produotion
of "The MesSlah."
