"Ah, Caskoden, Is tliat yout"
his eyes nnd checks were lustcrlcss nnd
sunken; but I will describe bim no further. Suffering had well nigh done Its
work, nnd nothing but tbe hardihood
gathered In bis yenrs of camp life and
wnr could hnve saved him from death.
I bathed nnd reclotlied blm as well as
I could nt Newgate and then took him
home to Greenwich In a horse litter,
where my man nnd I thoroughly washed, dressed and sheared the poor fellow and put him to bed.
"Ah, this bed Is n foretaste of paradise!" he said as he lay upon the mattress. It was a pitiful sight, and I
could hardly refrain from tears.
I will nsk you to go back with me for
a momei»'.
During tlie week between Brandon's
Interview with Mary In fhe anteroom
of the king's bedchamber and the tragedy at Billingsgate he and I had many
conversations about tho extraordinary
situation ln which he found himself.
At one time, I remember, he said:
"I was safe enough before that afternoon.    I  believe I  could have gone
. away   and Torgotten  her  eventually,
but our mutual avowal seems to have
dazed me nnd paralyzed every power
for effort    I sometimes feel helpless,
and,  although   I   havo  succeeded  ln
keeping nwny from her since then, I
often find myself wavering ln my determination to  lenve England.    That
was what I feared lf I allowed tho
"matter to go to the point of being sure
of her love.   I only wanted lt before,
and very easily made myself believe lt
was Impossible, and not for me.   But
now that I know she loves me lt ls like
holding my breath to live without her.
I feel every Instant tbnt I can hold it
no longer.   I know only too well that
if I bnt see her face ouce more I shall
breathe.   Bhe ls the very breath of life
for me.   Bhe Is mine by the gift of
God.   Curses upon thoso who keep us
apart."    Then musingly and half interrogatively: "She certainly does love
me.   She could not hnvo treated me as
ehe did unless her love was so strong
that she could not resist lt."
"Let no doubt of thnt trouble yon," I
answered. "A woman like Mary cannot treat two men as she treated you.
Many a woman may love or think she
loves many times, but there Is only one
mnn who receives the full measure of
her best Otber women again have nothing to give but their best, and when
they havo once given that they have
given all. Unless I have known her
ln vain, Mary, with all her faults, Ib
such a woman. Again, I say, let no
doubt of thnt trouble you."
Brandon answered with a sad little
amlle from the midst of his reverie,
"It ls really not so much tbe doubt as
the certainty of it that troubles me."
Then, starting to his feet, "If I thought
eho had lied to me, lf I thought she
could wantonly lead me on to suffer
ao for her, I would kill her, ao help me
"Do not think that Whatever her
faults—and she has enough—there la
no mnn on earth for her but you. Her
Iovo has come to her through a struggle against lt bocauso it was her mas-
ter. That la the strongest and best, ln
fact the only love, worth all tho self
made passions ln the world."
"Yes, I believo lt I know she has
faults; even my partiality cannot blind
me to them, but sbe ls as pure and
chaste oa a child and as gentle, strong
and true as—as—a woman. I can put
lt no stronger. She has these, her redeeming virtues, along with her beauty, from her plebeian grandmother,
Elizabeth Woodvllle, who with them
won a royal husband and elevated herself to the throne besldo the chivalrous
Edward. Thla sweet plebeian heritage
bubbles np In the heart of Mary and
will not down, but neutralizes the royal poison ln her veins and makes a goddess of her." Then with a sigh: "Bat
if her faults were a thousand times aa
many, and lf each fault were a thousand times oa great, her beauty would
atone for all. Bucb benuty ns hers can
afford to have faults. Look at Helen
and Cleopatra and Agnes Sorel. Did
their faults make them less attractive?
Beauty covereth more sins tban charity and maketb more grief than pestilence."
Louis xii. a nriTon.

About lt the surer I felt there had

deliberately permitted matters to go
to such an extreme wben lt was ln her
power to prevent lt Bbe might have
neglected her duty (or a day or two,
out sooner or later ner gouei impulses
always came to ber rescue, and witb
Jane by ber side to urge ber on I was
nlmost sure she would bave liberated
Brandon loug ago, barring a blunder of
some sort
So I did not go to Windsor until a
week after Brandon's release, when
the king asked mo to go down with
him, Wolsey and De Longuevllle, tho
French ambassador special, for tbe
purpose of oilielnlly offering to Mary
the band of Louis XII. nnd the honor
of becoming queen of Krniice.
Tlie princess bad known of the projected arrangement for many weeks,
but bad no tbougbt of the present forward condition of affairs or she would
have brought ber energies to bear upon
Henry lout, before. She could uot
bring herself to believe that ber brother would really force her Into such
wretchedness, and possibly he would
never have done so, much ns he desired it from the standpoint of personal
ambition, bnd lt not been tor tbe petty
excuse of that fatal trip to Grouehe's.
All the circumstances of the case
were such ns to mako Mnry's marriage
a veritable virgin sacrifice. Louis was
an old man, aud an old Frenchman at
that, full of French notions of morality and Immorality, and, besides, there
wero objections that cannot be written, but of which Henry nnd Mary bad
been fully Informed. She might as well
marry n leper. Do you wonder she waa
full of dread and fear and resisted with
tbe desperation oT death?
So Mary, the person most Interested,
was about the last to learn tbat the
treaty had been signed.
Windsor was nearly eight leagues
from London and at that time was occupied only by the girls nnd a few old
Indies aud servants, so that news did
not travel fast In that direction from
the city. It is also probable that, even
If the report of the treaty and Brandon's release hnd reached Windsor, the
persons hearing It would have hesitated to repeat lt to Mary. However that
may be, she bad no knowledge of either
until she wns informed of the fact that
the king and the French ambassador
would be at Windsor ou a certain day
to make tho formal re lest for her
hand and to offer the gifts of King
I had no doubt Mary was ln trouble
and felt sure she had been making affairs lively about her. I knew her suffering wns keen, but was glad of it ln
view of her treatment of Brandon.
A day or two after Brandon's liberation I hnd begun to speak to him of the
girls, but be Interrupted me with a
frightful oath: "Caskoden, you are my
friend, but lf you ever mention their
names again lu my hearing you ere
my friend no longer. I will curse you!"
I was frightened, bo much stronger
did his nature show than mine, and I
took good care to remain silent on that
subject until—but I am going too fast
again. I will tell .you of that hereafter.
Upon tho morning appointed the
Icing, Wolsey, De Longuevllle and myself, with n small retinue, rode over to
Windsor, where we found that Mary,
anticipating us, had barricaded herself
in ber bedroom and refused to receive
the announcement. The king went upstairs to coax the fair young besieged
through two IncbeB of oak door ond to
Induce her If possible to come down.
Wo below could plainly hear the king
pleading ln tbo voice of a Basban bull,
and It afforded us some amusement
behind our hands. Then his majesty
grew nngry and threatened to break
down the door, but tbe fair besieged
maintained a most persistent and provoking silence throughout lt all and
allowed him to carry out his threat
without so much as a whimper. He
wub thoroughly angry and called to us
to como up to seo him "compel obedience from the self willed hussy," a tnBk
tbo magnitude of which he underrated.
Tbe door was Boon broken down, and
the king walked in flrst, with De Longuevllle nud Wolsey uext, .and the rest
of us following lu close procession. But
we marched over broken walls to the
most laughable defeat ever suffered by
besieging army. Our foe, though small,
was altogether too fertile ln expedients
for us. Thero seemed no way to conquer this girl. Her resources were so
Inexhaustible that ln tbo moment of
your expected victory success was
turned Into defeat; nay, more, ridiculous disaster.
We fouud Jano crouching on the floor
lu a corner half dead with fright from
tho noise and tumult and where do
you tblnk we fouud her mistress?
Frightened? Not at all. She waB lying in bed wlrti her face to tbe wall as
cool as a January morning, her clothing tn a littlo heap lu the middle of the
Without turning her head, she exclaimed: "Come ln, brother. You are
quite welcome. Bring ln your friends.
I am ready to receive tbem, though not
in court attlro, as you soe." And she
thrust her bare arm straight up from
the bed to prove her words. You
should bave Been tbe Frenchman's little black eyes gloat on Its beauty.
Mary went on, still looking toward
tbe wall, "I will arise and receive you
all Informally lf you will but wait"
This disconcerted tbo Imperturbable
Henry, wbo was about at his wits' end.
"Cover  thot  arm,  you   hussy!"   be
cried ln a flaming rage.
"Be not Impatient brother mine! I
will Jump out ln Just a moment."
A little scream from Jane startled everybody, ond sbe quickly ran up to tho
king, saying: "I beg your majesty to
go. Bbe will do as sbe says so sure as
you remain. You don't know her. She
is very angry. Please go. I will bring
her downstairs somehow."
"Ah, Indeed! Jane llnllngbroke,"camo
from the bed. "I will receive my
guests myself when they are kind
enough to come to my room." The coverlid began to move, and whether or
not who waa really going to carry out
ber threat I cannot say, out Henry,
knowing her too well to risk It hurried
us all out of the room and marched
downstairs at tbe head of his defeated
cohorts. He was swearing ln a way
to make a priest's flesh creep and protesting by everything holy that Mary
should be the wife of Louis or die. He
went back to Mary's room at intervals,
but thero was enough persistence ln
that one girl to stop the wheels of time,
lf sbe but set herself to do It and the
king came awny from each visit the
victim of another rout
Finnlly his anger cooled, and he became amused. From the last visit he
came down laughing.
"I shall bave to give up the flgbt or
else put my armor on with visor down,"
said he. "It ls not safe to go near ber
without lt She ls a very vixen, aud
but pow tried to scratch my eyes out."
Wolsey, who had a wonderful knack
for finding the easiest means to a difficult end, took Henry off to a window,
where tbey held a whispered conversation.
It was pathetic to see a mighty king
and his great minister of state consulting and planning against one poor girl,
nnd, as angry as I felt toward Mary, I
could not help pitying her and admired
beyond the power of pen to write the
valiant and so far impregnable defenso
she had put up against an array of
strength that would have made a king
tremble on his throne.
Presently Henry gave one of his
loud laughs and slapped his thigh as
lf highly satisfied with some proposition of Wolsey's.
"Make ready at once," he said. "We
will go back to London."
In a short time we were all at the
main stairway ready to mount for the
return trip.
The Lady Mnry'B window was Just
above, and I saw Jane watching us as
we rode away.
After we were well out of Mary's
Bight the king called me to blm, and he,
together with De Longuevllle, Wolsey
and myself, turned our horses' bends,
rode rapidly by a circuitous path back
to another door of tbe castle and reentered without the knowledge of any
of the Inmates.
We four remained ln silence, enjoined by the king, ond in the course
of an hour the princess, supposing every one had gone, came downstairs and
walked into the room where we were
It was a senrvy trick, and I felt a
contempt for the men who had planned
lt I could see tbat Mary's first Impulse wns to beat a hasty retreat back
Into her citadel, tbe bed, but ln truth
she had in her makeup very little disposition to retreat. Sho was clear grit.
What a man she would have made!
But what a crime lt would have been
ln nature to have spoiled so perfect a
woman. How beautiful she was! She
threw one quick, surprised glance at
her brother and bis companions and,
lifting up ber exquisite head, carelessly hummed a little tune under her
breath as she marched to the other end
of the room with a gait that Juno herself could not bave Improved upon.
I saw the king smile, half in pride of
her and half in amusement, and tbe
Frenchman's little eyes feasted upon
her beauty with a relish that could not
be mistaken.
Henry and tbe ambassador spoke a
word in whispers wben the latter took
a box from e huge side pocket and
Btarted across the room toward Mary
wltb the king at bis heels.
Her side was toward them when they
came up, but she kept her attitude as
lf sbe had been of bronze. Sbe had
taken up a book tbat was lying on the
table and was examining it as they
De Longuevllle held the box ln his
hand, and, bowing and scraping, said
In broken English, "Permit to me, moat
gracious princess, that I may have the
honor to offer on behalf of my august
master this little testament of his high
admiration and love." With this he
bowed again, smiled llko a crack ln a
piece of old parchment and held his
box toward Mary. It wns open, probably ln the hope of enticing her with
a sight of Its contents—a beautiful diamond necklace.
She turned her face ever bo little and
took lt all In with one contemptuous,
sneering glance out of the corners of
hor eyes. Then, quietly reaching out
her hand, she grasped the necklace and
deliberately dashed lt ln poor old Do
Longuevllle's face.
"Thero Is my nnswer, sir] Go home
and tell your Imbecile old master I
scorn bis suit and hate him—hate him
—hate him!" Then, with tho tears falling unheeded down her cheeks: "Master Wolsey, you butcher's cur, this
trick was of your conception. The others bad not brains enough to tblnk of

bewure, Blr! I tell you now I will bo

Thero is a limit to tho best of feminine nerve, ond nt tbat limit should
always be found a flood of healthful
tears. Mary had reached lt when she
threw the nocklaco and shot hor bolt
at Wolsey, so she broke down and hastily left the room.
The king of course was beside himself with rage.
"By God's soul," ho swore, "she shall
marry Louis of Franca or I will have
her whipped to death on the Smith-
fleld pillory!" And In his wicked heart
—so Impervious to a Blngle lasting good
Impulse—ho renlly meant It
Immediately after this, tbe king, De
Longuovllle and Wolsey set out for
I remained behind hoping to see the
girls, and after a short time a page
plucked me by tho sleeve, saying tha
princess wished to see me.
Tho page conducted me to the same
room In which had been fought the battle with Mary ln bed. The door hod
been placed on Its binges again, but
tho bed was tumbled as Mary had left
It, aud tbe room was In great disorder.
"Oh, Sir Edwin," began Mary, who
waB weeping, "was ever woman hi
such frightful trouble? My brother Is
klll.ng me. Can ho not see that I could
nnt live through a week of this mar-
riuge? And I have been deserted by
nil my friends, too, excepting Jane.
She, poor thing, cannot leave."
"You. know I would not go," said
Jane parenthetically. Mary continued,
"You, too, have been borne an entire
week and have not been near me."
I began to soften nt the sight of her
grief and concluded wltb Brandon that,
after nil, her beauty could well cover
• multitude of sius, perhapi even thia,
ner groat transgression against him.
Tbo princess wus trying to check ber
weeping nnd In n moment took up tbe
thread of her unfinished sentence:
"And Mnster Brandon, too, left without so much ns sending mc one little
word—not a line nor n syllable. He
did not come near mc, but went off ns
if I did not cure-or ho did not    Of
"There ta-my answer, sir/"
course ho did not eare or he Would not
have behaved so, knowing I was In so
much trouble. I did not see bim at all
nfter^-one afternoon ln the king's—
ubout n week before that awful night
ln London, except that night, when I
waB so frightened I could not apenk
one word of all the things I wished
to say."
This sounded strange enough, and I
began more than ever to suspect something wrong. I, however, kept as firm
a grasp ns possible upon tbe stock of
Indignation I bad brought with me.
"How did you expect to see or hear
from him," asked I, "when be wns lying in a loathsome dungeon without
one rny of light, condemned to be
hanged, drawn and quartered because
of your selfish neglect to save blm wbo
at the ccst of half his blood and almost his life had saved so much for
Ilcr cy.s grew big, nnd the tears
were checked by genuine surprise.
I continued: "Lndy Mnry, no one
could hive made mo believe that you
would stand bnck and let the man to
whom you owed so great n debt lie so
long ii such misery and be condemned
to such a death for tho act that saved
you. I could never hnve believed lt!"
"Imp of hell!" screamed Mary. "What
tale la this you bring to torture me?
Huve I not enough already? Tell me
It ls a He or I will have your miserable
littlo tonguo torn out by the rootl"
"It ls uo He, princess, but au awful
troth and a frightful shame to you."
I was determined to tell ber all and
let ber see herself as she was.
She guve a hysterical laugh and,
throwing up her bands with her accustomed little gesture, fell upon the bed
ln utter abandonment, sbnklng ns with
a spasm. Sbe did not weep; sbe could
not; she was past that now. Jane went
over to the bed aud tried to soothe ber.
In a moment Mary sprang to lier feet,
exclaiming: "Master Brandon condemned to death, and you uud I here
talking nnd moaning nnd weeplngl
Come, come; we will go to the king at
once. Wo will start to walk, Edwin—1
must be doing something —aud Jane
can follow wltb the horses nnd overtake us. No; I will not dress; Just as
I am; this will do. Bring me a bat
Jane—nny one, nny one." While putting ou bnt and gloves sbe continued:
"I will see the king nt once and tell
him all—all! I will do anything. I
will marry that old king of Franco or
forty kings or forty devils! It's all
ono to me. Anything, anytbiug, to
save blm! Ob, to tblnk that he has
beeu lu that dungeon all this time!"
And tbe tears came unheeded in a deluge.
She wos under such headway and
spoko nnd moved so rapidly that I
could not Btop her until Bhe wos nearly
ready to go; then I beld her by the nrm
while I said:
"It ls not necessnry uow. You are
too late."
A look of horror camo Into her face,
and I continued slowly: "I procured
Brandon's release nearly a week ago.
I did wbnt you Bhould have done, and
-lie Ib now at our rooms in Greenwich."
Mary looked nt mo a moment uud,
turning pule, pressed ber hands to ber
heart and leaned against the door
After n short silence sho snld: "Edwin Caskoden—fool! Why could you
not hnvo told mo that at first? I
thought my brain would burn nnd my
heart burst."
"I Bhould havo told you hnd you given mc time. As to tbo pnln lt gave

large magazine of Indignation—"I care
very little about that. You deserve It
I do not know whut explanation you

She hud fallen Into a chair by this

more softly.
"You nre right; nothing can excuse
me. I nm tbo most selfish, ungrateful,

covered her drooping faco with hei

Household X,tn_ltutl*ns.
Among tbe problems which the "new
woman" must face in her home Is that
of household hygiene. The domestic
science depurtmcuts In tbe colleges are
giving liberal doses of knowledge along
this very practical line, and the women wbo ln nge are beyond such courses
aud yet are trying to keep up with the
demands of tbe times are perfecting
their knowledge by reading and careful study.
This Is by rlgbt called the sanitary
age. Two generations ago neither the
futhors nor mothers on the farm seemed to care a whit tf tbe drainage sloped into tho well. They were untroubled by bacteria, and lf the children
died of diphtheria or typhoid such a
tiling as germs from tbe well or the
damp cellar as the cause never disturbed tbelr Implicit faith in "God's will."
Today tenement life, city homes and
the spread of knowledge of the danger
of Insanitary conditions has brought
tbo woman as well as the man face to
face with these serious problems. Experience is fast proving to women that
there Is as little safety ln sitting Idly
back and leaving these matters ts tbe
landlord's or to man's will as to God's.
They are learning that vigilance Is the
surest road to health, that for their
own personal knowledge ef wbat ls
right plumbing, a proper home location
and good drainage there Is no valid

The eyebrows arc very significant of
character and emotion. Their beauty
consists in having them moderately
thick, especially near tho Inner third
and tapering to a point—soft, silky,
regular hairs, a shade darker than tlie
hair of the head, slightly curved, separated on tbe bridge of the nose and
clearly defined agnlust the skin.

Using Leftovers.
The talent of using what you have on

cookery, and soup making is a fertile
field, says a household authority. For
Instance, lf you have a pint of cooked
beans, by running them through a
strainer and adding a pint ef milk and
a tablespoonful ef butter—er a pint of
stock without the butter—with seasoning to taste (onion ls very good), one
may have a delicious soup at very

Most housewives Imagine that linen
Is the Ideal material for sheets, but several household authorities consider It
iaferler to a good quality of cotton for
this purpose. Linen ls cold and "slippery." It Is do mere appropriate for
sheets than It ls for body wear owing
to Its aenabsorbent quality. The wrinkles ln lb-en sheets are harder to
smooth eut than those in cotton and,
ln addition, keep a bed from looking
fresh. Linen, however, ts at Its best
when used for tablecloths and napery.
For all such purposes It ls the Ideal material.

The walls of a room near the door
are often greatly damaged by tbe door
handles knocking against tbem when
the door ls flung wide opsn. To prevent this take a fairly large spool, cover it first with cotton, wool or wadding

make It look neat. Put a long brass
beaded nail threugh tt and fasten lt to
the floor about four Inches from the
wall behind, tbe door. Then the handle cannot damage tbe wall.

Wonderful Story of the Development of
the Dominion of Canada — Cause*
Whioh Have Contributed to This
Profit of Over £2,000,000—American
Speculators In Canada's Lands and
the Part They Are Playing.
A correspondent writing  from   Lon-
- don, Eng., on March 21, says: "The £10
shares  ln  the  Hudson  Bay  Co.  have
risen nearly £20 ln less than a month,
and now stand at over £70."
To the financier the above statement
means a stock exchange "boom" to
which a profit of over £ 2,000,000 is attached. But to tho student of colonial
history It means much more. For him
It contains one of the most romantic
chapters ln the story of the development of our richest colony—the Dominion of Canada.
Within the next month work will begin ln earnest on the new railway
which ls to Join the Atlantic and Pacific shores of the Dominion. Half of
this railway—from Moncton, a New
Brunswick port, to Winnipeg—ls to be
built by tho Government; the other
half—from Winnipeg to Port Simpson,
on the Pacific—by tho Grand Trunk
Railway. The second half of this gl-
gantlo engineering enterprise will pass
through vast tracts of almost unexplored virgin country.
Some 2,000 mlloa of prairie land, Interspersed with lakes and ponds, and
heavily timbered in places wltb spruce
and pine, will be mnde accessible to
settlors. The few settlers who have already penetrated Into the mighty solitudes of Asslnibola, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, describe th. region as abounding ln mineral nnd agricultural wealth.
The story of Manitoba, with Its mammoth wheat fields, Its thousands of
prosperous farmers, Its hundreds of
towns and vlllnp.es, which now cover
what was once wild forest and prairie
land, th* home of the buffalo and the
Indian, ls likely to be repeated.
Amerloan Speculators,
The vast possibilities which the railway thus opens up have already been
recognised. American land speculators
ar* securing large blocks of land as
fast as tha Government surveys, made
ln preparation for settlers, are completed. The railway will not be finished for
Ave or six years, but lt will bring with
It thousands of settlers, and land
"booms" Ilk* these which marked tha
progress of the railway system of tha
United States are sure to follow. Then
will the speculators who are now sowing thalr seed reap their harvest
The Hudson Bay Co. has an extensive Interest ln all this, for, owing to
a bargain lt made with th* Canadian
Government thirty-five years ago. Its
proprietary rights In the region now
being brought Into touch with civilization ar* second only to those of the
Government Itself,
The company was founded In 1670, a
charter being granted to Prince Rupert
and seventeen noblemen and gentlemen
for Importing Into Great Britain furs
and skins obtained by barter from th*
Indians of North America. The corporation was invested with the absolute proprietorship of all land discovered or to be discovered within tha
entrance of ths Hudson Strait.
For mor* than a century the holders
of th* charter confined themselves to
the coast traffic. Their troubles were
many, th* chief being an almost continual warfare with the French, who
destroyed   their   forts,   ruined   their
good* and captured tnelr ships.
With ths wresting of Canada by the
British from ths French, the exploring
spirit broke out among the Hudson Bay
pioneers. Parties penetrated far up the
Saskatchewan River, towards the
Rocky Mountains. In 1783 the Northwest Fur Co. of Montreal was formed,
nnd, after nearly forty years' competition ln Inland trading wltn the Hudson
Bay Co., was merged into tho latter ta
Result of a Bargain.
The Hudson Bay Co. now ruled practically tho whole of North America. In
1870, however, lt made a bargain with
the Canadian Government, and to this
bargain Is due the fact that Its shares
to-day Btand at 700 per cent, premium.
The company's territorial rights wero
sold to the-Government for £300,000 in
cash, the right to select a block of land
adjoining each of ita stations, and the
right for fifty years from 1870 to
"claim ln any township or district within the fertile belt ln which land ls set
out for settlement grants of land not
exceeding one-twentieth part of the
land so set out."
Th* "fertile belt" Is the stretch of
oountry through the northern portion of
which, stretohlng from Winnipeg to
tha Rocky Mountains, ls bounded on
the south by the United States boundary. Up to March 1904, about 3,997,-
000 acres, or one-twentieth of the total
land laid out for settlement, which
reaches from Winnipeg to Edmonton, a
town ln Alberta, had been allotted to
the company.
With the passing of the railway
scheme the laying out of the land ls
proceeding apace, and well before the
fifty years have expired the entire district will be mapped out Into settlements, and the company will have received over 7,000,000 acres of land.
Up to March last year the company
had sold 1,234,000 acres of its land.
Some Idea of the price lt received may
be gained from the tact that ln the
year 1903-4 the company sold 180,414
acres for nearly a quarter of a million
Value* Steadily Rising.
Within the lost year ths company haa
adopted the policy ef reducing the
number of Its land sales, and Its present position ls that lt has over two and
a half million acres ln hand, with tho
certainty of a further allotment of over
three million acres In the next few
years. Already values are steadily rising throughout tha "fertile belt" and
tha possibilities of further appreciation
as the northern portion becomes colonised are boundless.
Since Its bargain with the Government ln 1870 the company has prospered
exceedingly. It has returned £1,000,000
to Its shareholders of their capital,
whioh Is now divided Into 100,000 shares
of £10 each. During the lost ten
years alone lt has paid £965,000 In
dividends, or nsarly an average of II
per oant Vast year Its dividend rose to
£17 10s per cent.
The present "boom" In Its shares-Is
largely owing to American purchases.
Possibly th* same speculators, who,
for months past, have been purchasing
land ln Northwest Canada, are seeking
to secure control of the company
which possesses so large an Interest
ln the sphere of their operations. Optimists say that, although there may be
small setbacks, due to profit-taking,
the company's shares are bound to
reach £100 ln value before the boom

On Friday, March 10, Mrs. Maxwell
passed the 100th milestone ln life's pilgrimage and the occasion was marked
by a large gathering of citizens. Mrs.
Maxwell, whose maiden name waa
Stokes, was born ln Lancaster County,
Though colored Mrs. Maxwell waa
free-born, the State of Pennsylvania
never having trafficked In slavery. Her
parents dying wluen she was very
young, Susannah was adopted by a
wealthy landowner named Holmes,
who treated her kindly.
She received a fair education and at
the age of 18 was given her Independence, Although free-born and among
a race of people sternly opposed to
slavery, Mrs. Maxwell states that there
was at all times among the colored
people a dread of the marauding bands \
who Infested the border towns, kidnapping colored people and selling them into slavery ln the south. On one occasion tbey were only repulsed with loss
of life on both sides.
Mrs. Miucowell and her husband In
coming to Canada settled ln Richmond Hill, where she has since resided.
During this long time she has lost her

Speaking at the Toronto Canadian
Club luncheon recently on "The Indians ln Canada," Mr. Frank Pedley,
of the Department of Indian Affairs,
Ottawa, said that at the rounding out
of Confederation there was an Indian
population of 80,000 distributed from
the Atlantic to the Pacific, comprising
over thirty different tribes. There was
a general Impression that the Indians
were a dying race, but the records of
tha Department did not bear out that
view, as the present population was
about 101,000, there being 25,000 ln
British Columbia, 21,000 In Ontario,
17,000 ln the Northwest Territories, 11,-
000 ln Quebec. The rights of tha Indian to his land were absolutely safeguarded by tha Indian Act, and not a
foot could be sold without permission
of the Department He spoke of the
Indian title to tbe land, which waa ro-
oognlzed by the French and English.
By treaties, by annuities and by Instituting reserves the title has been extinguished over most of Canada. Un-
gava Mackensle, Keewatln and the
Yukon are exceptions. Prior to confederation the Provinces or the Imperial Government dealt With the Indians. Now their welfare rests entirely with ths Dominion Government. The
Impression also existed that the Indians were mostly given to hunting
and Ashing, but as a fnct their occupations ware very much varied, and
were determined largely by local conditions. In Eastern Canada they were
manufacturers of snowshoes, moccasins, baskets, etc., whilst ln the settled
portions of Ontario they were devoting
themselves to pursuits somewhat similar to tha whits men. In British Columbia they work ln the orchard, ln
canneries, as well as manufacture certain articles.
Eduoatlon Policy.
In addition to the Industrial pursuits, said Mr. Pedley, a policy leading to the education of the Indians bad
been pursued, and there were to-day
821 day schools distributed over the
Dominion, Tl of which were In Ontario,
41 ta Manitoba, and 18 ln the Northwest Territories. Ths schools were
modelled on a system adopted by the
Provincial Department of Education
for rural schools. In addition to the
day schools, the Department had subsidized 16 boarding schools carried on
under the ausploes of different religious
denominations, where ln addition to
tha secular side, religious Instruction
was given, housekeeping for girls and
the rudiments of agriculture for boys.
There were also 14 Industrial schools
established for tha purpose of affording a more thorough system of manual
Medical Attandanoa,
There were further In the employ of
the Indian Department 171 doctors,
whose duties were to give all reasonable attendanoe, whilst the physical
condition ln general ware also looked
after. Another feature of the work to
which constant attention was being
given was tha stamping out of the liquor trade amongst the Indians. It
was not for blm (Mr. Pedley) to prophesy, or to state with any degree ef
dcllnltenoss as to ths future of the
Indian, but at any rats there were
many Inherent qualities making for
his betterment, and lt was the duty of
the Department to see that the process of development was not hindered,
but encouraged ta the most emphatic

Many of the cures brought about by
Dr. Chase's Ointment are bo much
like miracles that people can scarcely
believo them. When Baby Millar became a victim of eczema her parents
did everything tbat could be done to
get her cured. Three doctors tried all
the means ta their power, but without success, and then all sorts ot
remedies were used, wlui the vain
hope that something would bring relief from the disease that seemed to
be burning up the living flesh.
It was not until Dr. Chase's Ointment, was used that relief and cure
came. This case ls certified by a
prominent Sunday school superintendent of St. Catherines.
Mrs. Wm. Millar, St. Catherines,
Ont., writes:—"My daughter, Mary,
when six months old contracted eczema and for three years this disease
baffled all treatment. Her caso was
one of tho worst that ever came to
my notice, and she suffered what no
pen can ever describe. I had her
treated by three different doctors, but
all to no purpose whatever, and all
sorts of balms, soaps and lotions were
tried with no beneficial results.
"Finally I decided to use Dr. Chase's
Ointment, and to my surprise she began to Improve lmmed lately, and after regular treatment, for a time the
disease of so long standing completely disappeared. Ab that was four
years ago, and not a symptom of this
distressing ailment has ever shown
Itself since, tho cure must certainly
be a permanent one. At the time of
this cure we were living ln Cornwall,
Ont., and the doctors there feared lf
sbe was not cured ot Eczema aha
would go Into a decline."
Mr. 8. Richardson, Jun., Superintendent Christ's Church Sunday schol,
St. Catherines, Ont., writes: "I am

Thomas W. Lnwson was once visited ln his Boston office by a young
woman who came laden with nil sorts
of college dlpomas and gilt edge references. It so happened that Mr. Law-
son needed a temporary secretary,
and engaged her on the spot. When,
later ln the dny, the young woman
handed Mr. Lawson a number of letters that ho had dictated, that were
chiefly remarkable for their hideous
orthography. He called tho girl's attention to hor blunders, whereupon
she replied with a giggle: "Really,
now, I think I must have been bewitched." "Quite so," said Mr. Law-
son; "some fairy has evidently cast a
bad spell over you."

I look down the lengthening distance
Far back to youth's valley of hope.
How strange seemed the ways of existence,
.How infinite life and its scope.
What dreams, what ambitions    came
To people a world of my own!
How  the  heart    in    my bosom  was
For pleasures and places unknown.
But   the  hill   tops   of  pleasure   and
Were   covered   with   mist   at   the
And only the rugged road Duty
Shone clear, as my feet wandered on.
1 loved not the path and its leading,
1 haled the rocks and the dust;
But a  Voice from  the    Silence    was
It spoke but one syllalbc—"Trust."
I saw as the morning grew older
The  fair  flowered  hills of delight;
And  the feet  of my  comrades  grew
They hurried away from my sight.
And when on the pathway I faltered,
And when I rebelled at my fate,
The Voice, with assurance unaltered,
Again  spoke one  syllabic—"Wait.'
Along the hard highway I travelled.
And saw, with dim vision, how soon
The morning's gold locks were unravelled,
By fingers of amorous noon.
A turn in the pathway of duly—
I stond in the perfect Jiy's 1 .rim",
Close, close to the hillside of beauty;
The Voice from   the   Silence    said
The way to the Beautiful Regions

Advices from both Canadian and
American cities state that just now
gray silks seem to stand out in special prominence, and must be regarded as an item in the city stocks. Some
buyers are already talking of the exceptional gray vogue that will develop early in the spring, and arc preparing to show an unusual line of gray
The  Silk Costume.
The separate waist of silk or other
fine material has done all in the way
of revival that any one expected, says
the Dry Goods Reporter. Many of
the best fancy silks now shown in
the large cities were bought with the
idea of waist materials exclusively.
The separate waist has revived and
every retail silk man should be glad
of it, but we must not forget that
the silk costume is of greater importance from a fashion standpoint than
it has been any time during the past
ten years.
Of course, we expect the summer
vogue of the silk shirtwaist suit. The
highpriced dressmakers who have recently returned from abroad have received new inspiration regarding the
silk costume. The European openings especially ill Paris show that
the best French designers have not
been disposed to pass silk fabrics, in
the production of their most elaborate
fall costumes. This vogue of the
entire silk gown in the leading fashion centers abroad will certainly have
a beneficial influence on the sale of
silks here. If your silk department
lives up to its possibilities this fall
it will make a new record in materials for silk costumes.    Do not lose

sight of the silk costume and its importance in a fashion way this fall.
Revival of  Black Brocades.
Black brocades have been showing
signs of revival abroad and in some
of the prominent American centers
during the past six months. A good
many buyers believed this line was a
possibility, but a few of them had the
courage of their convictions. No
marked revival of black brocaded
silks is here, although several representative departments arc showing
them and report an increasing interest on the part of their best trade.
The patterns now show range from
small to medium, although a few
large designs appear. So far these
brocades have sold for entire costumes. Of course, that means that
if the public receives tbem wilh anything like former favor wc shall soon
see separate skirts of elegant black
brocades and moires.
Silk buyers who have gone through
several brocade revivals state that
brocades usually follow moires. They
believe that if elegant moire antiques
arc used by the best dressmakers for
trimmings or for entire costumes
brocades arc sure to follow. Naturally
the general trade has given very little
attention to black brocaded sillfs.
They have not been shown extensively in this country.     Some buyers

Outside cleanliness is less than half
the battle.   A mau may scrub himself s
do/.cn times a day, and
still  be unclean. ' Good
health Inenns cleanliness
not only outside, but inside.   It means n clean
stomach,  clean  bowels,
clean   blood, a  clean
liver,   und   new,  clean,
healthy  tissues  ami   lilies in every organ of
the   body.      The   man
who   is   clean   in   this
way will look it and act
it.    He will work with
energy and think clean, clear, healthy
He will never be troubled with liver,
lung, atomach or blood disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in
unclean stomachs. Blood diseases nre
found where there is unclean blood.
Consumption and bronchitis
mean unclean lungs. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery prevents these
diseases. It makes a man's
insides clean and healthy.
It cleans the digestive organs, makes pure, clean
blood, and clean, healthy
flesh. It docsn t make the
flabby fat of corpulency,
but the firm flesh of health.
It restores tone to the nervous system,
and cures uervous exhaustion and
proBtration. It contains no alcohol
to inebriate or create craving for injurious stimulants.
Mr. Johu   I,.  Cmigll.a-iir, of Glen  Savage,
Somerset  Co., Pa., writes:    "My nptictite waa
unusunlly poor, and I waa as weak ami nervous as though I hail been starved for month...
My heart kept throbbing continually nml I w.-ts
ahort of breath.    Finally I wrote to you for ndvlce aud you iuforincd mc that I hnd indigestion
and a torpid liver.    I did not think your diagnosis, wits riuhl, but 1 ordered six bottles of
' Golden Medical Discovery' from you and beaan '
its use.    A lin uslns; three bottles 1 began to lm- I j
prove slowly and soon went to work, nud I have !
been working aver since."
Constipation is tbe most unclean un- |
cleanliness.     Dr. Pierce's Pleasuut 1'el-1
lets cure it.   They never gripe.
