TlHE following morning Toio
I rose before daylight nnd rode
■to-Dariey. As lio reached the
place the first rays of the
sun were touching the slate covered
spire of the largest church in town.
He went to a public wagon yard and
hitched his horse to one of the Ions
racks. A mountain family lie knew
slightly had camped In the yard, sleeping in their canvas covered wagon,
and were making coffee over a littlo
fire. Pole wanted a cup of the beverage, but he passed on Into a grocery
store across tho street and bought a
dime's worth of cheese and hardtack
crackers. This was his breakfast. lie
washed lt down with a dipper of water
from the street well and sat around
tho store chatting with the clerk, who
was sprinkling tho floor aud sweeping
and dusting the long room. Tho clerk
was a redheuded young man with n
short, bristling mustache, and a suit
of clothes that was too large for him.
"Don't Mr. Craig slay around lyncher's warehouse a good deal?" Pole
asked as tho clerk rested for a moment
on his broom near blm.
"Mighty nigh nil day long," wns the
reply. "Him an' FIneher's some kin,
I think."
"On his wife's side," said Pole. ."1
want to see Mr. Craig. I wonder ef
he'll be down thar this mornln'."
"Purty apt," said the clerk. "FIneher's his best friend sence his bu'st up,
an' they nre mighty thick. I reckon he
gits the coid sfliouldcr at a lots o'
places." 1
"You don't say!"'
"An' ot course he wants soniewlinr
to go besides home. In passlu' I've
seed .'to a-flgurin! several times at
FIneher's desk. They say he's got
some notion o' workin' for Flncher as
his bookkeeper."
"Well,  he'll  havo to  malto a livln'
some way," said Pole.
The clerk laughed significantly.
"Ef lt ain't already made," said ha
wltb a smile.
Polo stood up. "I don't think that's
r.'Shf," he snid coldly. "Alt n;ir yon
nur nobody hain't wot no right to hint
at what we don't know nothln! about,
Mr. Craig may 'a' lost ever' cent he
"In a pig's valise!" sneered Ihe redheaded man. "I'd Let my hat he's got
money—an' plenty of it, huh!"
"Well, I don't kuow nothin' about
it," said Pole, still coldly. "An' what's
more, Dunn, I ain't n-goin' about
smircbin' any helpless man's character
nuther. Ef I knowed he had made by
the bu'st, I'd talk different, but I don't
know lt."
"Oh, I see which side you are on,
Baker," laughed the clerk. "Folks aro
about equally divided. Half is fer 'Im,
an' half agin. But mark my words,
Craig will slide out o' this town somo
day an' be heerd of after awhile n-git-
tln' started agin some'r's else. That
racket has been worked to death all
over the country."
Pole carried the discussion no further. Half an hour passed. Customers
were coming In from tho wagon yard
and examining the wares on the counters and making slow purchases. Tha
proprietor came In nnd let the clerk go
to breakfast Pole stood in the doorway looking up the street In the direction of Craig's residence. Presently he
saw tbe ex-banker coming from the
postofflce reading his mail. Pole stepped back Into the store and let him go
by; then he went to the door again
and saw Craig go Into FIneher's warehouse at the end of the next block of
straggling, wooden buildings. Pole
sauntered down tho sidewalk In that
direction, passing the front door of the
warehouse without looking In. The
door at the side of the bouse had a
long platform before It, and on it

Somo one laughed lustily from behind a tall stack of wheat In bags in
the warehouse. It was Lawyer Trabue. He came round and picked up
FIneher's dally paper, as ho did every
morning, and sat down and began to
read it
"Now you are talkln'," he sald.
"Thar was more rest In that Job, Pole,

Flncher laughed as he closed his
book and struck Baker with lt play.

his voice, glancing cautiously iuto the

"Well, I do need advice, Mr. Craig,"

Craig stared In Interested astonishment "Well, you can trust me, Baker," he said, "and, if I can advise you,
why, I'll do lt with pleasure."
There was a cotton compress near
by, with Its vast sheds and platforms,
and Pole looked nt lt steadily. He
thrust his hand Into his pants pocket
and kept lt there for a full minute;
then he shook his head, drew out his
hand and said: "I reckon I won't bother you today, Mr. Craig. Some day
I'll come In town an' tell you, but"—
Pole looked at thflun. "I reckon I'd
better be goin'."
"Hold on 1" Craig caught Pole's arm.
The ex-banker was a natural man.
Despite his recent troubles he had his
share of curiosity, and Pole's manner
and words had aroused lt to unwonted
activity. "Hold on," he said. "What's
your hurry? I've got time to spare if
you have."
Pole hung bis head for a moment in
silence; thoij he looked the old man In
the face. "Mr. Crnlg," he began In even
a lower voice, "do you reckon thar's
any gold In them mountains?" Pole
nodded to the blue wave in the east.
Craig was standing near a bale of
cotton, and he sat down on lt, first parting the tails of his long, black coat.
"I don't know; there might be," he
said, deeply interested nnd yet trying
to nppcnr indifferent. "Thero ls plenty
of it in the same range farther down
about Dalonega."
Pole had bis tftnd in the right pocket
of his rough Jean trousers.
"Is thar anybody In this town that
could tell a piece o' gold ef they seed
it?" ho asked.
"Oh, a good many, I reckon," said
Craig, a steely beam of excitement in
his unsteady eye. "I can myself. I
spent two yenrs In the gold mines of
California when I was a young man."
"You don't say I I never knowed
that." Pole had really heard of that
fact, but his face was straight. Ho had
managed to throw into it a most wonderful blending of fear and overcau-
"Oh, yes; I've had a good deal of experience In such things."
"You don't say!" Pole was looking
toward the compress again.
! Craig laughed out suddenly and put
his hand on Pole's shoulder with a
friendly, downwnrd stroke.
| "You can trust me. Baker," he said
persuasively, "nnd it may be tbat T
could be of assistance to you."
There was something like an actual
tremor of  agitation   In  Pole's rough
hand as he drew his little nugget from
Its resting place at the bottom of his
pocket.   With a deep, Indrawn breath
he handed lt to Craig. "Is thnt thar little lump gold or not?" he asked.
!    Craig started visibly as his eyes fell
' on the piece of gold.    But he took it
Indifferently nnd examined lt closely.
i    "Where did you run across that?" he
i    "1   want to know ef it's tho puoro
thing," answered Pole.
j    Craig made another examination, obviously to decide on the method he
! would apply to a situation tbat claimed
nil his interest.
i    "1 think lt is," he snul-"ln fact I
j know It Is."
Pole took lt eagerly, thrust it back
I into ills pocket and said:
"Mr.  Craig,  I  know whar thar's a
i vein o' that stuff twenty yards thick,
runnin' clean through n mountain."
"Y'ou do?"   Craig actually paled un-
' der his suppressed excitement.
"Yes, sir, nn' I kin buy It lock, stock
and  barrel,   fer  five  hundred  dollars.
The feller that owns It ud Jump nt lt
like n duck on n June bug.   That's my
secret, Mr. Craig.    I hain't one dollar

I    Crnlg glnnced to the rear.
"Come back here," be said.   Opening
I a door at the end of the warehouse, he
! led Pole Into a more retired spot, where
. they would lie free from poss.'ble Inter-
j motion.    Then  In  n  most persuasive
| voice lie continued: 'Tinker, you need a

Besides, If there Is ns much of—of that

Pole hung his bend. He seemed to
be.spciking half to himself and on the
verge of n Bnille when ho replied, "I'd
like to see you pay bnck some of 'em,
too. Sir. Craig."
Craig laid big hand gently on Pole's
"How about lettln' me see the place;
Baker?" he said.
Pole hesitated, and then he met the
cx-banker's look with the expression
of a mau who has resigned himself te
a generous impulse.
"Well, some day when you ar«
a-passin' my way stop in, an' I'll"—
"How far ls it?" broke In Craig, pulling his beard with unsteady fingers.
"A good fifteen miles from beer,"
said Pole.
Craig smiled. "Nothln' but'an easy
ride," he declared. "I've got a horse
doln' nothing in tho stable. What's to
hinder us from going today—this morning—as soon as I can go for my horse?"
"I don't keer," snid Pole resignedly.
"But could you manage to go without

was really pleased with Pole's extreme

"A good idea, a good idea, Baker."
"Do you know whar the Ducktown

Pole looked at the sun, shading his
eyes with his hand.
"Could you be thar by 11 o'clock?"
"Easy enough, Baker."
"Well, I'll meet you. I'm n-goin' to
trust you, Mr. Crnlg, an' when you see
the vein ef you think thar's enough
money In It fer two—but we can see
about that later."
"All right, Beker. I'll be there. But
say," as Pole was moving nway, "you
are a drinking man and get-a little off
sometimes. Y'ou haven't said anytblng
nbout this where anybody"—
Pole laughed reassuringly. "I never
have been drunk enough to do that,
Mr. Craig, an', what's more, I never
will be."
A^BOUT noon that day as Pole
I Baker sat on a fallen tree
wagH near the roadside In the Ione-
-gKfflsi Host spot of that rugged country, his horse grazing behind him, he
saw Craig coming up the gradual Incline from the creek. Pole stood up
and caught the bridle rein of bis horse
and muttered:
"Now, Pole Baker, durn yore hide,
you've got brains—at least Bome folks
say you have—an' so has he. Ef you
don't git the best of that scalawag,
yo're done fer. You've put purty big
things through. Now put this nn
through or shet up."
"Well, here you are," merrily cried
out the ex-banker as he came up. He
was smiling expectantly. "Your secret's safe with me. I haven't met a
soul that I know since I left town."
"I'm glad you didn't, Mr. Craig,"
Pole snld. "I don't want anybody
a-meddlin' wltb my business." Ho
pointed up the rather steep and rocky
road that led gradually up the mountain. "We've got two or three mile
furder to go. Have you had any dinner?"
"I put a cold biscuit and a slice of
. ham In my pocket," said Craig.   "It '11
do me till supper."
Pole mounted and led the way np the
unfrequented road.
"I may as well tell you, Mr. Craig,
that I used to bo a moonshiner In these
mountains, nn' "—
"Lord, I knew that, Baker. Who
doesn't, I'd like to know?"
Pole's big booted legs swung back
and forth like pendulums from the
flanks of his horse.
"I was a-goln' to tell you that I had
a hide out, whar I kept stuff stored,
that -wasn't knowed by one livln' man."
"Well, you must bave had a slick
place from all I've heard," said Craig,
still In his vast good humor with himself and everybody else.
"The best natur' ever built," said
Pole; "an' what's more, lt was in thar
that I found the gold. I reckon lt
. '.id 'a' been dlskivercd long ago, ef it
had 'a' been above ground."
"Then it's in—a sort of cave?" ventured Craig.
"That's Jest it; but I've got tbe mouth
of lt closed up so it ud fool even a
Half an hour later Pole drew rein In
n most isolated spot, near a great yawning canyon from which came a roaring
sound of rushing water and clashing
winds. The sky overhead was blue
and cloudless; the air at tbat altitude
was crisp and rarefied, and held the
odor of spruce pine. With a laugh
Pole dismounted. "What ef I was to
tell you, Mr. Craig, that you waa in
ten yards o' my old den right now?"
Craig looked about In surprise. "I'd
think you was making fun of me—ten-
derfootlu', ns wo used to say out west."
"I'm givln' lt to you straight," said
Pole, pointing witb his riding switch.
"Do you seo that pile of rocks?"
Craig nodded.
"Right under them two flat ones ls
the mouth o' my den," said Pole.
"Now let's hitch to that hemlock, an'
I'll show you the whole thing."
When they had fastened their horses
to swinging limbs iu a dense thicket
of laurel and rhododendron bushes,
they went to the pile of rocks.
"I toted mighty high all of 'em from
higher up," Pole explained. "Some
o' the biggest I rolled down from that
cliff above."
"I don't see how you are going to
get Into your hole In the ground," said
Craig, with a laugh of pleasant anticipation.
Pole picked up n big, smooth stick
of hickory, Bhaped like a crowbar, an*
thrust the end of It under tho largest
rock.   "Huh! I'll show you in a Jiffy."
It wns nn enormous stone weighing
over three hundred pounds; hut with

slowly to the right, disclosing a black

leading down nbout twenty-five feet
to tlie bottom of the cave.
"Ugh!" Craig shuddered it3 he peered
into the dank blackness. "You dou't
mean that we nre to go down thero?"
It wns a crisis. With his big feet
dangling in the hole, Pole threw himself back and gave vent lo a hearty,
prolonged lnugh that went ringing and
echoing about among the cliffs and
"I 'lowed this ud make yore flesh
crawl," he said. "Looks like the open-
in' to the bad place, don't lt?"
"It certainly does," said Crnlg, somewhat reassured by Pole's levity.
"Why, It ain't rnore'n forty feet
square," said Pole. "Wnlt till I run
down an' make u light. I've got some
fat pine torches down at the foot o'
tho ladder."
"Well, I believe I will let you go
first," said Craig, with an uneasy littlo
Pole went down the ladder, recklessly thumping his heels on the rungs.
He was lost to sight from above, but
in a moment Craig heard hlin strike a
match and saw the red, growing ilnme
of a sputtering torch from which
twisted a rope of smoke. When it wns
well ablaze, Pole called tip llie ladder:
"Come on now, an' watch whar you
put yore feet. This end o' the ladder Is
solid us the rock o' Gibralty."
The square of daylight above was
cut off, and In a moment tho ex-banker
stood beside his guide.
"Now come down this way," said
Pole, and with the torch held high ho
led the way Into a part of the chamber
whore the rock overhead sloped down
lower. Here lay some old whisky barrels, two or three lager beer kegs and
the iron hoops of soveral barrels that
had been burned. Thoro were several
one gallon jugs with corncob stoppers.
Polo swept his hand over them with a
laugh. "If you was a drlnkln' man, I
could treat you to a thimbleful or two
left In them Jugs," he snld almost apologetically.
"But I don't drink, Bnker," Craig
said. His premonition of danger seemed
to have returned to hlin and to be driven In by the dank coolness of the cavern, the evidence of past outlawry
around him.
Pole heaped his pieces of pine against
a rock and added to them tho chunks
of some barrel staves, which set up n
lively popping sound like a tiny fusillade of artillery.
"You see that rock behind you, Mr.
Craig?" nsked Pole. "Well, set down
on lt. Before we go any furder me 'n
you've got to have a understanding."
The old man stared hesitatingly for
an Instant, nnd then, after carefully
feeling of the stone, he complied.
"I thought we nlready-but, of course,"
he said haltingly, "I'm ready to agree
to anything that Ml mako you feel safe."
"I kinder Mowed you would." And,
to Craig's overwhelming astonishment,
Pole drew a revolver from his hip pocket and looked nt it, turning the cylinder with a deft thumb.
"You mean, Baker"— But Craig's
words remained unborn In his bewildered brain. The rigor of death Itself
seemed to have beset his tongue. A
cold sweat broke out on him.
"I mean that I've tuck the trouble
to fetch you heer fer a purpose, Mr.
Craig, an' thar nln't nny use In beatin'
about the bush to git at It."
Craig made another effort at utterance, but failed. Polo could hear his
rnp'd breathing and see the terrified
gleaming of his wide open ej'es.
"You've had a lots o' dcaliu's, Mr.
Craig," said Pole. "You've made yore
mistakes an' had yore good luck, but
"You've trapped mel"
you never did a bigger fool thing 'an
you did when you listened to my tale
nbout that lump o' gold."
"You've trapped mc!" burst from
Craig's quivering lips.
"That's about the size of It."
"But—why?" The words formed the
beginning nnd the end of a gasp.
Pole towered over him, the revolver
In ills tense hand.
Mr. Craig, thnr is one man in this
world thut I'd die for twenty times

Thnt man you've robbed of every dollar un' hope on earth. I've fetched you

sny, ef—yon don't refund his money.
That man Is Alnn Bishop, nu' tho
amount Is $25,000 to a cent."
"But I haven't nny money," moaned
llie crouching figure; "not a dollar that
I kin lay my hands on."
"Then you are in a purty bad fix,"
said Pole, "Unless I git that amouut
o* money rrom you you'll never smell

The words were like a prayer.

Pole Baker firmly.    ". -  met me

groaned. ,
"Y'ou think I have money," be said,
straightening up.   "Oh, my God!"
"1 know it," said Pole. "I don't
think anything about It—I know it."
He took out the pen nnd ink from bis
pants pocket and unfolded a sheet of
pnper. "Git to work," he said. "You
needn't try to turn me, you durned old
Craig raised a pair of wide open,
helpless eyes to the rigid fnce above
"Oh, my God!" be -aid again.
"You let God alone an' git down to
business," said Pole, taking n fresh
hold of the handle of his weapon.
"I'm not goin' to waste time with you.
Either you git me Alan Bishop's money
or you'll die.   Hurry up!"
"Will you keep faith with me—if—
"Yes, durn you, why wouldn't I?"
A gleam of triumph flashed in the outlaw's eyes.
Tho ex-banker had taken tbo pen
nnd Polo spread out the sheet of paper
on his knee.
"What assurance have I?" stani-
mered Craig, his face like a death mask
arainst the rock behind him. "You
see, nfter you got the money, you
might think It safer to leave me here,
thinking thut I would prosecute you.
I wouldn't, as God ls my Judge, but
you might bo afraid"—
"I'm not afraid o' nothln'," said
Pole. "Old man, you couldn't handle
me without puttiu' yoreself in Jail fer
the rest o' yore life. That order's
a-goln' to be proof thnt you havo money
when you've swore publicly that you
didn't. No; wheu I'm paid back Alan
Bishop's money I'll let you go. I don't
want to kill a man fer Jest tryln' to
steal an' not makiu' the rllHe."
The logic struck home. The warmth
of hope diffused Itself over the guunt
"Then I'll write n note to my wife,"
he said.
Pole reached for one of the torches
and held it near the paper.
"Well, I'm glad I won't have to go
furder 'n Darley," be said. "It '11 bo
better fer both of us. By rldln' peert
I can let you out before sundown. You
may git a late supper at Darley, but
It's a sight better 'n glttln' none heer
an' no bed to speak of."
"I'm putting my life In your hands,
Baker," said Craig, and with on unsteady hand he began to write.
"Hold on thar," said Pole. "You'll
know the best way to write to her, but
when the money's mentioned I want
you to say the $25,000 deposited In the
bank by the Bishops. You see, I'm not
goin' to tote no order fer money I
hain't no right to. An' I'll tell you another thing, old man, you needn't throw
out no hint to her to have me arrested.
As God ls my final judge, ef I'm tuck
up fer this, they'll never make me tell
whar you are. I'd wait until you'd
pegged out, anyway."
"I'm not setting any trap for you,
Baker," whined Crnlg. "Yeo've got the
longest head of any man I ever knew.
You've got me in your power, and all I
can ask of you ls my life. I'vo got
Bishop's money hidden in my house.
I am willing to restore it If you will release me. I can write my wife a note
that will cause her to give lt to you.
Isn't that fair?"
"That's all I want," said Pole. "An'

"Don't leave me here, Bnker," he
said Imploringly. "Don't, for God's

In the evening, as they sat iu tho big
sitting room smoking nfter supper cigars, accompanied by Abner Daniel,
Willi his long, enne stemmed pipe, Mrs,
Bishop came Into the room In her quiet
wny, smoothing her apron with her
delicate hands.
"Pole Baker's rid up an' hitched at
the front gale," she said. "Did you
scud Mm to town fer nnythlng, Alan?"
"No, innlhor," replied her son. "I
reckon he's come to get more meat. Ia

"I think he's some'r's nbout the stable," snid Mrs. Bishop.
Miller Intlghod, "1 guess Pole Isn't

"Father never weighs or keeps ao
count of anything he gets," said Alan.
"ITior's yore money!  It's all thar,"
' "Thoy both make a guess at It when

"Thar!" broke In Daniel, with a gur-

"We have been nt it, off and on, all

"The truth Is lt makes mo madder thnn
anything I ever encountered."
"Do you know why?" asked Abner
seriously, Just as Pole Bnker came
through the dining room and leaned
against the door Jamb facing them. "It's

along with the others—"It's beea'se you

"Oh, I wouldn't say that!" protested
Miller, In the tone of a man of broad

said Pole, striding forward and sinking

"He hain't got lt, Undo Ab." Pole
i was beginning to smile mysteriously.
; "He did havo It, but he hain't got it

I     "You got it?" gasped Daniel.   "You?"

boy," he said, "thar's yore money! It's
all thar.   I counted it.   It's in fifties
an' hundreds."
|    Breathlessly and with expanded eyes
I Alan broke the string nbout the packet
and opened it.
"Great God!" he muttered.
Miller sprang up nnd looked nt tho
stack of bills, but said nothing. Abner,
leaning forward, uttered a little, low
"You—you didn't kill Mm, did you,
Pole, old boy—you didn't, did you?" ho
"Didn't harm a hair of his bead,"
said Pole. "All I wanted was Alan's

"Well," grunted Daniel, "I'm glad

Miller wns now hurriedly running
over the bills.
"You say you counted lt, Baker?" he
said, pale with pleased excitement.
"Three times—fust when It was turned over to me an' twice on the way

"You did lt out of friendship for me,"

"Wnlt fer Alfred," she said, her voice

She went ont through the dining room,

She leaned over the fence opposite

We are all fond of fighting—that is,
#_ all love to look at a fight, and some
of us like to be in n light. But we ail
love to see one. There are some super-
BMthotlc and hyper refined humans of
both sexes who tiiink they do not like
to see a fight. Some of .them actually
believe they nre sincere. But deep
down in tho average man and woman
the love of fight exists, lt ls ingrained;
it is congenital; It is in the human baby. When ho screams, squalls nnd
kicks if liis will Is thwarted, he is fighting.
So with the sumo baby wheu, grown
up into a boy, he pulls his little sister's
hair. It Is partly, perhaps, the love of
fighting nnd partly, perhaps, the love of
giving pain; for cruelty also seems to
be part of tho makeup of the human
animal. After little brother has finished pulling little sister's lialr and she
hns dried her eyes she soothes her
wounded feelings by pulling off flics'
wings or legs or pinching tlYe cat's tuil
nnder a rocking chair. Of the higher
flights of juvenile cruelty to which her
brother rises whan he ties two cnts to
■getlier by llielr tails over a clothesline
where ihey light till nothing is left but
their tnll lips—of these familiar fact*
we will not speak.
When brother goes to school nnd then
to college, whether It be to the English
"public" school or to the American
"public" school, resembling each other
only in name; to tlie academy, to the
preparatory school, to the university,
he speedily becomes past master in cruelly, lu most of these institutions he
must light. Hazing exists in every college in the country. Even the United
Stales government cannot stamp It out
at West Point nnd Annapolis. In both
these Institutions fist fights under prize
ring rules nre of almost dally occurrence. -They nre masterful battles, and
they have not n little to do with making stout hearted, stalwart fighters of
ou:- army and navy officers. To those
who object to these battles the unanswerable reply Is that the boys are
there lo learn to fight und that the way
to learn to light is to tight.
I Most people think too lightly of a

Standing; an E_r> OB End.
Any fresh egg can, without being
boiled, be balanced on either end by
any one possessing patience nnd a
steady band.
In order to save time the egg should
be placed for a short time ou the end
upon which lt ls desired to balance lt,
so as to allow tbe yolk to settle; then
both forearms of the person making
the experiment should be rested on tbe
edge of tbe table and the egg should be
taken between the three fingers and
thumbs of both hands and slowly turn
cd around until tbe center ot gravity Is
found. This experiment may at first
require a little time, but after a little
practice it will be found very easy to
do. It would be well to try lt first on
tbe tablecloth and then on the bottom
of a plate.
It ls conceded, of course, tbat tbe
present century is far more advanced
than tbat of Columbus, so lt is only to
be expected that different Ideas should
have been formed, even as to the balancing of eggs.
To Build Robust Health
start at the foundation of life and health. Assist yonr
organs to do their work properly. Food and drink cannot
nourish if your liver is not working right. Dyspepsia and
Indigestion follow if your digestive organs are out of
order. Constipation cannot exist if your bowels are free.
A short course of Beecham's Pills will soon put you right
and an occasional one will keep you so.
will do more to build up robust health and maintain it than
any other medicine. They have done this, and are con*
tinually doing it for thousands all over the world. If you
start now and take BEECHAM'S PILLS occasionally you
will certainly benefit to a remarkable degree.

A Defense at Dancing.
It is not necessary In these days to j
defend the claim of the dance to a
place among tbe arts.   As soon as we
have got rid of the Puritan prejudice
on tbe point (and one may hope that
this no longer exists for the intelligent
part of tbe population) the claim is too
overwhelming to need apology, for If ;
we take art to mean the production of
beauty then the case only needs stating i
to be conceded, while lf we understand
it as self expression in some concrete ;
form wo shall  find  that the  dance,
which ls a kind of. fusion of  music,
painting and sculpture, ls pre-eminently capable of giving expression beyond I

Genesis of Life Insurance.
Life insurance originated In 1T0G Id
London. In that year there was rotra-
ed the first life insurance company. II
was called the Amicable Society For a
Perpetual Assurance Office. It was s
mutual benefit concern.
Ench member, without reference to
age, paid a fixed admission fee und a
fixed nnnual charge per share on from
one to three shares, and at the end of
the year a portion of the fund acctimu-
He describes the beginning of tho sale
as follows:
"The crowd at the entrance parts to
the right and left to admit twelve
grave men wearing white turbans and
Jellnbias. They are the delnls, or auctioneers, and the sale ls about to begin.
"Slowly and Impressively the delals
advance In a line to the center of the
slave market, almost up to the arcade
where the wealthy buyers sit expectant. Then the head auctioneer
lifts up his voice, and—oh, hideous
mockery of it nil!—he prnys.
Now each delal has his people sort-
latcd was divided among the heirs of
those who had died, in accordance with I ed out, nnd the procession begins. Fol

The First Corset.
The first corset—not counting ancient
modifications of the Grecian zone and
girdle—was introduced Into France by
Catherine de' Medici. It was a strange
nffair and fashioned after the style of
a knight's cuirass. Tho framework vtas
entirely of Iron, and tho velvet, which
decorated the exterior only, served to
hide a frightful and cumbersome article of torture.
Dividing the Sexes.
While worshiping In a little chapel-
of-ease a few miles from Ruthin, on
the Wrexham road, the sexes arc so
strictly divided tbat tbey cannot even
see one another. Tho building forms a
right angle, In one arm of which the
men sit and the women In the other.
It was built and endowed by a misogynist of the Stuart period who objected to having his devotions distracted by tho sight of the bated sex and,
sympathizing with male posterity,
stipulated expressly for this division

An Incident of the Childhood of the
Master Olc  Boll.
Ole Bull, the great violinist, wns born
with n genius for music. To him the
swaying of bluebells, tbe wind and
rain and waterfalls, the music of birds
nnd bees—nil these were the voices of
nature, and he tried lo reproduce them
on his violin.
It is said tbnt the musician's first
violin was given him by un uncle when
he was but four years old, and bis delight at the present knew no bounds.
"My father wanted me to be a minister," said he in telling the story muny
years nfler, "and 1 thought I must do
as be wished. Hut when I wns eight
years old be bought me n new violin
and arranged to have mc sillily under
a teacher, 'for,' he said, 'a minister
ought to know a little nbout music'
That night I could not sleep. I rose
iu the night lo get a peep nt the pre
clous violin. It was so red, and the
pretty pearl screws did smile at me so!
I pinched Ihe strings just a little with
my lingers, and It smiled at me more
nnd more. I took up the bow and
looked nt It. It snld to me It would bo

strings. So 1 did try It Just a very,
very little, and It did play so softly. I
forgot that It wns midnight and everybody asleep, and tho next mlnuto I felt
my father's whip ncross my shoulders.
My littlo red violin dropped on the floor
end was broken. I did wevp very much
for It, but it did no good. They did
have a doctor to It tho next day but It
never recovered  Its health."

HpHS PAPER, alluded to as the
"official orgau" by a daily newspaper, has not yet told tho story of the
advertizing negotiations between the
City Couucil nud the daily papers.
-At the beginning of the year the
contract for Oity Advertising was let to
"The Advocate" as the lowest teudercr,
although the price wns Sc por line more
than the dailies asked aud received last
year, this year their tender having
advanced 18c per line on their last
year's tender. Tbe Council
naturally were astounded, and
decided to accept the Mt. Pleasant
"Advocate's'- tender. Great surprise
among the dalies aud their business
managers I
When the Hospital and Streot Improvement By-laws were published in
"The Advocate", the Council asked the
dailies to publish them also which they
refused to do unless they were giveu
the advertising for the rest of the year
at their advanced rates. If this is a
progressive spirit ou the part of big
newspapers which are geuerouBly sup
ported by the citizens, deliver us from
emulating their loyalty to the City's
interests. To force the City to pay
exhorbitnut prices and refuse to accept
anything unless they were giveu all is
just what the dailies have done.
, Likewise they have refused
to report anything wliich would let the
public suspect the game of grab they
were playiug—badly wo admit. Now,
they are blaming the Council for uot
having advortized the Pender Street
Improvement By-law in the dailies—
jsuoli assessment by-laws having to be
published in at least two papers.

The Secret of Long Life and
How to Overcome Waste.
To "Know thyself," is to take'advantage
of life's secrets and equip one's self with
an armor which will successfully resist the
attack of disease in
the battle of life.
The olel idea of fato
or " kismet," ami
that a person al-
ways dies when his
time conieB, is now
exploded. Every
mechanism, whether mnde liy God or
man, has a definite
amount of wear
and its life can be
lengthened or
shortened according to the care that
is given it. If accident or carelessness destroys the
works of the watch
or the human mechanism an end comes
to It- usefulness, but it has not actually
"Biorn tuif." Man's system at times geta
rusty like the wheels of the watch and
only needs a little cleaning and oiling to
put it in shape for life's battles.
An imitation of nature's method of restoring waste of tissue and impoverishment of the blood and nervouB force is
used when you take an alterative extract
of herbs and roots, without the use of alcohol, like Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. This vegetable medicine coaxes
the digestive functions and helps in the
assimilation of food, or ratber enables the
organs to take from the food just the
nutriment the blood requires.
Prof. I. E. Tauguay, of 61 St. Peter atreet, Quebec, writes: " I had been ill for some time with Ls
Grippe nud did not regain my strength. Within a week after using Dr. Pierce's C.olden Medical Discovery, I wns able to lie around again,
nnd I founel that my system was entirely free
from any of the bail effects of La Grippe.     I

Very attractive are the kimonos made
either of four large silk kerchiefs, or ot
six smaller lawn ones having colored
borders. For the former, the kerchief,
cut in two, makes the sleeves; another,
with the border removed from the top,
the back; and the others, cutting the
borders from the tops and one side, the
fronts. From the five borders, Bewn
together, the finishing band and yoke
are made.
In making the lawn ones, the fronts,
back and sleeves require each a kerchief; from the corners of the sixth the
yoke ls made, and the border cut from
the tops of the fronts furnishes the collar. It ls cut also from the back. The
sleeves are eel In with a point on the
shoulder exactly meeting the shoulder-
seam In the yoke. A dainty touch ls
given one kimono by fagoting all the seams where hems come together. The sleeve ls thus set In and

A. E. LEES & CO.,
Mr R. G. Mocpherson, M. P., has informed the Vaucouver World that the
federal goverumeut does not proposo to
interfere with the provincial government's appointment of police commis-
siouers for Vaucouver. The federal gov
eminent is wise. Vancouver's police affairs were made a scandnl aud a disgrace while directed as a branch of civic
politics. The people wanted commis
sinners so thut tho department might be
got on useful aud depeudable linos,
Thoy got them, and then the World—
representing the little clique of petty
ward politicians who desired to retain
the polioe force as an instrument of
municipal politics—demanded a return
to the old objectionable system. Hap
pily for Vhncouver they nre unsuccessful
