build one where there is nothing lo

tbougbt I'd fust make shore that our

to pint it out to me. Well, nfter some
silrch he put his knife bltide on what
b^ called this county, .but, lo aud behold, it wn,s mighty nlgb klvercd with
round dots about the size of tlyspecks.
'what's the matter with it?' I nxed Jim.
'Oh, you mean tliem dots,' ses he, nn'
hafltriied to n lot of reference words In
tbe corner of the map. 'Them,' ses he,
'tram's put thnr to indlente the nmouut
o' ignorance in a locality. You/ll And
'em in nil places away from the railroads. A body kin Bny' whiit they
pleuse ngin railroads, but they fetch

You've got a good many specks,' ses
he, kinder comfortin' like, 'but some o'
these days n rnllroud will shoot out
this nwny, au' them • brainy, men

Inlands to give 'em.' Gentlemen, I
'didn't buy no map. I wouldn't 'n' had
the thing on my wall with the specks
a-slurin' me in the fnce. It wouldn't
'a' done nny good to scrape.'em off, fer.

friends, citizens nn' wellwishei's, thar
ain't but one scraper that will ever
rake our specks ofl'. an' that's the eow-
patchcr of a steam engyne. I say let
'er conic, 'sg'ui.', objection, has been
raised on 'the s'cnr'i. o' killin" cattle.
That reminds me of a story they tell
ou old Burt Preston, Who Has ii farm
on the.uiu.in line beynnt Durley. He
ml. ulw.uys ii-giltiu'-hif stock killed so
fast nn' a-piittin' In heavy claims fer
d.images, until folks begun to sny he
made his liviu' by bityin' 'scrub ciittlo
an' sellln' mashed beef to the corporation. One day the rona'sent out a detective to wiilch 'im, niiMio seed Burt
drive a spipdlin' yeeiiin' out o' tlie
tbieket on the track jest in Ume to get
it knocked off by a througfi freight. The
delective went back nu' reported, un"
they waited to see wbat Preston ud do.
By the next mall tbey_got n Clnlm In
which Preston said tbe yeeiiin'
weighed §110 pound au' was a fine four
gallon iiillk cow. They threatened to
Jail 'Im, an' Preston agreed-to with-
ih'uw bis ehiiiu. But he got dowuheart-
ed un' truded his place fer a farm on
t'other railroad, nn' the last I heerd o*
him he was at his old trade ag'In. I
reckon that's about the way we'll bs

That's all I got to say, gentlemen.

Tyndall, Man.; April 25.'-.(Special)
—Among the,many in tlio. great West
who confidently ^stiito that they owe
their lives to DOdd's lifrlney l'ills is
Mr. J, J. Perkins, a...well known
resident of this place.
"For two years' I ">a'B troubled
with my kidneys," .Mr. .Perkins
states, "and at lust became so bad,
that tbe doctor gave ine up and said
I was incurable.
"I, at times, had such severe pains
in my bucl. and kidneys that I
thought I would have to give up all
hope und die. Z was unable to work
arid was becoming destitute.
"While in this condition a ' friend
persuaded mo to try Dodd's Kidney
l'ills. 1 hud little faith in them, and
it was- more to please him than anything else 1 gave them a trial.
"To my surprise the llrst box did
nie so much good that 1 felt like a
new man. l-'ivo boxes cured me completely.
"Dodd'B Kidney Pills saved my life
nnd I cannot praise them too much."
Thousands of casus similar to that
of Mr. ._Jurkins ure tlio proof that
any Kidney Iliscaso from ' ilackacbe
to Bright's Disease yields readily lo

"Friend,'    you're  on     my   horse,"
Bahl one gent leiiuin to another as he
reined his horse before the* door.
■   "Your     lior.se!      Oh,    no;    why,  I
bought this horse two years ago!"
"Vou" did?" unswcied tbo; Other;
"well, I lost my horse—it was stolen—just  two years ago.."'   .   ;
This conversation took place under
the'' far-spi-.,icling oaks ot an old-
tiiiie plantation home, Says a clipping from ihe ,'\c\v Orleans Picayune. A planter was sui-pfused "tn
Sec his horse return homo after two
years, and ridden by a gentleman
who evidently bad bought tho horse
in good  faith.
After some 'conversation, the old
owner of tho horse, with much ea'fn-
estiiess, said:
"Well, sir, if you will dismount,
unsaddle the horse, and, if lie don't
go to the fence, take the bars down,
walk to the well; and, if.ho don't
hnd water in file bucket, let it
down the well, and then walk off to
his old .stable, 1 will give up, tb.
horse is not mine."
"At your word; the horse is
yours if lie does all that," cried tlio
visitor, and, looping from thu horse,
unsaddled it. What was his astonishment when tho horse went
straight to the feme, lyt down the,
burs, crossed over, went, to tho Well,
und, finding no water, let tlie bucket down, and then, us though he had
left holne ycsioiduy, walked to the
old stable!' The animal remembered
the trick, and the owner recovered
his hoi'se.—Kxcliaiige.

Here Is an anecdote illustrative of
the magpie's love of mischief and of
sport: There was a Held wherein clothes
were often hung out to dry on posts
w.bieh.were let down Into deep wooden
sockets burled In the ground and were
carried away and put under cover when
they were, not in use. A gravel path
ran round tlie field, and a tame magpie, which had the run of it, wus observed to walk repeatedly and demurely from the path to a particular point
in -ihe field, conveying each time a
stone in ber bill aud then returning
without lt. A magpie seldom continues
at any one amusement for nny length
ot time, but this amusement went on
so long that the curiosity of the owner
was aroused. There must be something unusually novel or piquant about
it. He went to the spot and found that
a large toad bud fallen into one of the
wooden sockets' and that the magpie
wns omuslug herself by deliberately
stoning HI As each shot told, the toad
gave a little hop of distress in the hole
deep below, which the magpie capped
by a big bop of satisfaction and an
Irresistible "currack" of delight above,

Tlie Goose and t-rldlrou.
There existed in London long before
the great lire in St Paul's churchyard
a very popular music house called tbe
Miter. Here concerts were held, and
the music st these performances had at
least the merit of volume and Joyous-
uess. But tbe great fire laid tbe building in ruins and banished the music.
When the place wus rebuilt, the new
tenant, wishing to rid: le tbe character of the former business, chose as his
sign a goose stroking the bars of a
gridiron with her foot and wrote below, "The Swan and Harp." At tbe
Goose and Gridiron Sir Christopher
Wren presided over the St Paul's lodge
of Freemasons for over eighteen years,

Attention is called to tho advertisement °f *be B O. Electric Railway
Company in this paper, in which upbears the uew schedule of lower prices
fur electric light. Tbe reduction In the
fust of electric light will have the
effect <»f increasing the number of
users of tins convouieut light. This
Company is noted for its consideration
<if tbo public interests.
Speaking roughly, in every two
thousand voters in the best areas, about
three hundred cnu bo classed as danger-
our, about one hundred ns theorutically
m practically devoted to the public
welfare, wbile there nre six hundred
who are safe, industrious aud good, bnt
with au alarming, niiiid-their-nwn-
btisiuess sentiment.
Politics consist in working these six
hundred. The favored few in leadership find it politic to frighten (he common people into a beliof that their
interests are jeopardized by the cu-
ernnchment of tho bad, that their
saviugs and their employment will be
sacrificed by the success of  the  low est
•classes. On the otber baud, Ibis lower
element works over hours in tho effort
'tn make the common people believe that
laws, wages, hours, court decisions, and
■ other couditions imposed by the few are'
a grievous wrong to the humble classes.
The best appeal to their self-iutcre. t of
'the common people, and Ihe worst appeal to their sympathy.    Sympathy for
it lie poor man's dinner-pail has elocted
one prosident.and the fenr of halving the
1 rtollur of the common people has elected
two.   Tbe six  hundred   always do the
'electing, but never do the pluuning.
Leadership comes from 'he top or from
■ tho bottom.
The  same  conditions  exist    in  tho
• industrial and commercial world.    Iu
j matters religions the case is no different.

Stop at this. They have dene (heir best

The seir-oaciific|nr wife, who never
thinks of her, own comfort or pleasure
where her husband Is concerned, but
who finds sufficient happiness In life In
meeting him with a glad, sweet smile
when he comes home at 3 o'clock In the
morning, has been the heroine of
thousand novels. The self-sacrificing
mother, who slaves and pinches and
economises hi order that her children
may go in fashionable society and dress
like the rich,.has been the Inspiration
of innumerable poems. And thus has
man nobly striven to cheer woman on
as she made a burnt-offering or herself on the kitchen range.
There is no question that silk shirtwaist suits are much liked, and that
their very great popularity has robbed
them of smartness iu the oyes of those
whose taste in dress is quite in au opposite direction. There is much difference,
however, between the ready-made and
the order suit. Some of the latter arc
extremely trig. Insets of velvet or
contrasting silks, and manoenvering of
silk brrids or silk laces, turn ont the
prettiest of those convenient snits, so fit
for short journeys to town nud back

Flattery has a bad name because
most persona think of It as necessarily
and wholly Insincere. Yet when we say
that we dislike'flattery', we are thinking only of tbat witless, crude and obtrusive kind of flattery which Is daubed on, as all of us are not only susceptible to flattery but we love dearly to
be flattered if the one who flattens us
ls clever enough, to go about It in the
right way. Flattery Is a very Important branch of the art of pleasing, if
Indeed it be not tn Itself and by Itself
one of the finest, ef the social arts.
'Its essence lies In the tactful expression of admiration, and if this expression be truly tactful It will never be
resented by Its object. To flatter ef
fectlvely one must be a rare judge of
human nature; and if flattery is ever
III received, lt is only because the one
who tries to flatter has formed a mistaken estimate of his subject's temperament and personality, and not at all
beoause the subject Is Impervious to
the blandishment of. this delicate and
subtle art.

They arc supposed to get into the water or
milk we drink. The germs multiply go
that one germ is capable of producing
about one Hundred Irillion germs In twenty-four hours. That is why if tliev ever
get into the water supply of a town they
multiply so fast that nearly everybody
drinking the water comes down with the
disease. There are exceptions, however,
and they arc the persons whose health is
perfect, whose blood Is pure, and liver
active. When the germs get into » healthy
body tbey arc thrown off wilh the other
poiaons. Recent Chicago statistics show
that one-eighth of all the deaths in tbe
Jiast two years in that city have resulted

Many yenrs ago Dr. It. V, pierce, who is
consulting surgeon to the Invalids' Hotel
aud Surgical Institute at Buffalo, N. Y.,
found certain herbs and roots which, when
made into an alterative extract (without
the use of alcoholl, seemed to be the very
best means of putting the stomach, blood
and vital organs into proper condition.
This seemed to him as close to nature's
way of treating disease as it was possible
to go. Por over a third of a century Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has had
n wonderful sale nnd the cures resulting
from its use ore numbered by thousands.

When a woman wants to be good, she
makes herself uncomfortable. When
she desire* to be very good, she makes
herself miserable. And when she yearns
nfter spiritual perfection, she marty
rlzes herself. With her the ratio of
piety depends on the ratio of wretchedness, and she Is never so persuaded
that she Is leading the higher life as
whPn Bin? ls making her present existence not worth living.
This h_js caused hor to exalt self-sacrifice Into a cult. She has glorified unselfishness and self-abnegation, and
she haa felt that If she could only be
enough of a victim to somebody or
something, It would atone for all her
faults and shortcomings. Nobody remembers the tamper or tongue or
housekeeping of a martyr; It Is only
her sufferings that we recall. And so
women have gone out of their way to
court persecution, and to hunt up altar*
on which to sacrifice themselves, and
they have accounted It unto themselves
for rlghtousness when they did the
thing they loathed to do, when they
might just an well have pleased them-

To tbe ports of Sleepytime Land?
Oh, It's not by rail—
They must lightly sail
To that most delightful strand!
Their little boat is a poppy-flower,
They glide on the oceans of musk
(The breeze's perfume);
And they breast the gloom
At exactly quarter-past dusk.
They use for a sail a gossamer,
Their oars are Just stamens of gold.
And they dip their spars
In ripples of stars—
A load of dreams In the hold.
A cargo, too, of some poppy-wine;
For ballast, the Sandman's Band—■
With a win-dug eye
And a murmured "Bye"
They start for their Sleepytime Land.
