chair. "I—we rather, Mr. Beaton and
myself—had a visit from n wild-looking
man who says he is my cousin." and she
described itie interview very accurately.
As Mr*. Winington listened she grew
graver and graver, her month i-hnsing
tightly. When Edith ceased to s;eak,
she   said,   almost   in   Benton's   words:
"This is very serious. If this man
turns out to he what he represents himself, it will change yonr fortunes considerably."
"Why will it change my fortunes?"
asked Edith.
"Tell nie," said Mrs. Winlnglon, no':
heeding her, "were yonr uncles older

"I do not know."
"Vou see, if this mail is your cousin,

Edllh, who since her engagement was

Mrs. Winington observed her Willi

eyes often sought the clock. "When

Mrs. Winington went on with her

He had not read. long when he wns interrupted by the entrance of Edith, followed to his surprise by Vivian, wiio

black velvet coat was open and showed
no waistcoat, but a good deal of very
white shirt; a broad leather belt and
buckle, and a red silk handkerchief
tied looseiy around his Ihroat, gave him
tbe air of a bandit who had made his
money and  retired  from  business.
Edith looked very grave, but in no
wny   disturbed.
"WoU, dear, I hope you hnvo got
through this unpleasant business satisfactorily," said Mrs. Winington, rising
with a smile, and determined to make
things as pleasant ns she could. "Mr.

"Yes, I'm David Vivian, and, ns I

"The iohhing lias been on my side,

chair Benion brought for ber, while
David Vivian leaned on 1he back of a
large, old-fashioned sofa opposite Mrs.
Winington, "Mr. Dargan has been explaining to nie that tho money 1 have

"1 don't want it," said Vivian, abruptly and linnly; "If I did, that stuffy

The Klckapoo Indians have a very
peculiar marriage custom. They simply select their wives, and if the selection Is mutual they reside together as
man and wife, and nothing Is eald.
There aro no scandals among these
people.. Husbands and wives aro true
to each other, and the quiet understanding Is considered as sacred ns bur
marriage vows. Thero ure few acts
that can be termed criminal among
this small band of Indians. Murder is
seldom heard of, and death Is the penalty for the crime. Robbery from each
other is unknown. All their possessions could be piled together In tbo
street, and no one of them would think
of taking the property. Their rcllgiou
is the sumo as Columbus found among
tho Indians when he first landed In
America. They believe that there aro
two spirits—the grent, good spirit and
the bad spirit. After death the wicked
ure Bupposcd to fall victims to the bud
spirit. The religious worship Is carried on every day. It consists of dances
and singing nnd beating of tomtoms.
They nre very delicate regnrding their
belief and seldom take a stranger into
their confidence.—Kansas City Journal.

There are few ways of earning an

before descending to their work leave
their pipes nnd tobneco hoses In tho
hands of Ibe old folk. The pipes are
cleaned ami lilled ready for lighting,
ami llie millers can come up nt tho

A student of music of llie aborigines

How   to   Judge   a   Woman   by   th*
Shape ot Her Month.
"I Judge a man by his eyes, but a woman always by her lips," said Benjamin Franklin. And no man ever read
people more correctly.    .
Queen Elizabeth onco refused to engage a waiting woman who came with
every possible recommendation, "because," she Bald, "the woman is a talebearer. Do you not see the downward
dip of her lip?   I will none of ber."
"In choosing a wife let her be a woman whose lips do uot droop nt the
eornera," advises a Persian sage. "If
n woman's lips droop her husband's life
will be a perpetual mourning time.
Nor yet should they curve too much upward, for that denotes frivolity."
Select for a wife one whoso lips are
straight, not thin.
When tlie curve or arch is lacking
aud the lip overhangs, not loosely, but
well defined nnd firm, the owner is gentle aud ready to please.
The inputh of sagacity Is large and
always well closed, wltb the line of the
lips firmly defined.
Tbo witty mouth ia thin lipped and
so polished nnd smooth that light
glances across it. The color is fine scarlet The possessor of such a mouth
will say clever, scintillating things,
sacrificing her best friend for the .sake
of an epigram.
Coquettish lips are sharply defined,
with a deep pressure under the nose
nud the corners inclined upward. Here
lie laughter and fun and love of music, flowers nnd nnlninls. The smile is
sympathetic, never tragic. Love of ridicule will be strong, but not in n malicious vein. If tbe corners dimple deeply tbe lips are quick at repartee.—Exchange.

In Siam superstition is rampant
every wh to, and the most peculiar
explanai'ous are Riven of natural
phenomena. Thunder is "the sky
crying." Jn tho realms above lives a
horrible giant with a wife of uncertain and violent temper. When they
quarrel he loses his temper, and tho
echo of Ilia voice comes in long und
rolling notes from Ihe sky. If he Is
very angry he throws his hatchet at
his unruly spouse, and when the ponderous weapon strikes the floor of
heaven the thunderbolt falls through
and comes to earth. As to lightning
there are two interpretations. Some
say that it is caused by tho angels
striking fire with bricks, while others
say it is a woman flashing a mirror
in tho air. Falling stars are produced when the angels throw torches at
ono another. When these same spirits all get into the bmh nt the
same time they spill tho water over
tho side and it rains. The winds
that sigh In the night are tho voices
of the babies who havo departed to
the lands beyond tho grave.
From tho earliest days all the hair
Is shaved off (ho top of tho head except ono small tuft. This single lock
is dally combed, twisted, oiled, and
tied in a knot. A tiny circlet of
flowers surrounds it and a Jewelled
pin adorns it. This "top-knot" is removed with a prolonged and imposing ritual, into whiiih wo have not
now space to enter. Girls lose the
top-knot at about eleven or thirteen
years of age. The boys get shaved
a little later. The removal of this
top-knot corresponds iu somo degreo
to our "coming of age" festivities.
The hair is now allowed to grow
ull over the head and to a length de-
tirnding only on tho whim of the
owner, though generally speaking, lt
is kept quite short In .both sexea,

Of Colonel Bromley-Davenport, who
has Just bpen appointed Financial
Secretary to the War Office,. Mr. T.
P. O'Connor says: There are few
voung men in the House so variously
gifted as Bromley-Davenport. 1I» is
an excellent speaker, a great sportsman, and in the South African war
he made a bigger name for himself
as a cavalry commoner than any Of
tho men who went out from the
House of Commons. Ho was years in
the Houso before ho even opened his
lips, and, Indei.d, ho might have remained silent for ever if lt had not
been (hat ho is a close friend of Lord
Penrhyn, and that an attack on Lord
Fenrbyn mode it a point of honor to
speak on his beluli'. This young member, who inrelv attended the House
—who nevor opened his lips, whose
lntorosts were elsewhere, who spoke
of things "'..ith- a certain detached
cynicism—quite startled the Houso by
bursting on it with a speech, pointed, witty, elTectlve—of course, I
think, on the wrong side—but all the
same nn admirable bit of reasoning
In tho best Parliamentary style. Then
ho relapsed into silence, went to tho
dimly-lit back benches again; then he
volunteered for tho war, and made
his name in military circles. But
when he came back, although he know
more than most people, and could
speak his views as well as anybody
in the House, he slipped once moro
Into tho back benches nnd into cynical silence, and just seemed determined to spoil himself. But now—perhaps
in spile of himself—his chance has
come, and you will hear a good deal
or him in Iho future. The House of
Commons has always somo surprises
of this kind, especially at a moment
when everybody is saying that there
is no talent left in it.
The Can or Manure.
For a good many years back our
agriculturist practiced the application of well rotten manure to their
fields. It wus almost universally bo-
lieveil that only well rolted manure
was fit for uso and that tho process
of fermentation ndded to rather than
took from tho value of the manure.
There has come now a reaction from
that doctrine, and lt Is advocated
that manure bo put oil to Iho fields
as fresh as possible. A large number of careful analyses havo demonstrated tho fact that a ton of fresh
manure contains a larger total of
plant food thun it ever Will again;
that permitting il to become well
rotted in a pile enormously decreases
the amount of plant food, somo escaping inlo the air in the form of
ammonia gas and some leaching into
the soil and passing off into the
drains and brooks. Our experiment
stations havo given no little attention to llie matter and have published bulletin after bulletin i.howing
that fresh manure should be applied
to the fields nt once.
Where early spring crops are (o be
raised it is advisable to apply the
manure to the fields while the temperature of the air is such that some
decay of the manure may go on. The
early spring will complete thu work,
and the food elements in the manure
will bo Bet loose for iho benefit of
the early growing plant*, After
freezing the manure should bo hauled to the fields mid deposited in
bmall piles, so thul. the cold may
fully penetrate them and arrest fer-
tni'iitntion.—Fanner*' Iloview.

Val Racine, Que., Dec. 21.—(Special)—In these days when nearly every
newspaper tells of death from Kidney Disease the case of Emilien Clountre of this place comes as a message
of hope to the Canadian people. He
had Kidney Diyeaso. Dodd's Kidney
Pills cured him completely and permanently.
If. Clountre is always glad to tell
of his cure.   He says :   "I  can   not
do otherwise than prniso Dodd's Kitl-
1 ney Pills.   They cured mc of Kidney
"1 had pains in the back and hcad-
acho and could not sleep at nights.
I got up in the morning inoiv

Tills mid they cured me completely.
Now I can sleep well and work well
and my backache and headache arc-
gone. 1 haw hnd no trouble since 1

When Sandow poses nnd the muscles
ridge his back nnd knot his arms, we
think we have before us the very secret
of strength in those magnificent muscles.
But we haven't. Starve Sandow, or,
what is practically the snme thing, let
him be dyspeptic, and his muscle would
soon fail. Strength is made from food
properly digested and assimilated, and
110 man is stronger than his stomach, because when tlie stomach is diseased digestion and assimilation are imperfect.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
cures diseases ol the stomach and other
organs of digestion and nutrition.    It
enables the perfect digestion and assimilation of food so that the body is nourished into perfect health and strength.

All the Ingenuity, all the art needlework practised for centuries, has been
employed to make the gown of to-day
the exquisite thing that lt Is. An over-
skirt done In serge Mexican openwork
in silk, such as is seen In miniature on
tbo Mexican doilies, takes a skilled
needlewoman from six to seven weeks
to do. Much of the Arabasque work,
as it Is called, takes as long. This Arabasque Is made of folded bands of
chiffon or some soft material, and in
stitched round an entire costume, according to the design wanted.
The full skirt was first introduced
over a year ago. That Is, the skirt laid
In folds or gathers over the hips—a return to the old styles of Louis XV. A
few tall and very slight women took
up this style with alacrity, but lt was
a question In tho mind of the short
stout woman should she be In fashion
and look awkward by adding to lu r
stoutness, or decline to follow the coming mode.
Hi-anted that the skirt shall flare as
much as lt likes, and can at the bottom, niaiiaiiii- still retulnn her graceful
lines from hip to knee. Indeed, a fashion so unbecoming to certain figures
and so Inappropriate, except for house
wear, can never become really popular.
However, certain concessions are
made to vary the style in regard to the
full skirt The lining, of course, is al
ways tight-fitting, but if the dress material 1b laid in folds over the hips and
folds are stitched down flat In order
to make as little fulness ae possible
Gathers anr ruffles at the top of a skirt
are treated In the same manner, but a
great many folds' are allowed In the
back of the skirt.
As to the cut of bodices for evening
dresses, the point to consider is the
wearer's taste, or rather her shoulders.
The broad, square-shouldered girl must
be made by the aid Of berthas and
falling points of lace to give the im
presslon of sloping shoulders, while
she who Is blessed wltb a perfect neck
and arms can dispense with both ber
tha and sleeves. A Jewelled strap, or
one of flowers, holds the bodice In place,
and a long fall of lace or chiffon is
substituted for the sleeve.
Girdles are of silk, velvet or chiffon, with long flowing ends.
Fashion has tired of the many
spangles seen In recent seasons. The
glare and glimmer waa too artificial,
tod stagey. The decoration of gowns
nowadays consists almost entirely of
flowers in lace, silk or moussellne.
These flowers are almost exact reproductions of those embroidered on
the dresses of the women at the Court
of Louis XV. This particular way of
making conventionalised flowers In
Bilks and moussellne de' sole was handed down from generation to generation
by a family In France, who still keep
a Email shop called "Shop of the Fairy
Fingers" in Paris.

Health, grace and beauty Is tbe aim
of the physical culture classes as taught
in the Girls' Technical High School.
Of course, health has always been
sought for in the school training, but
here we find grace and beauty, mind
you—personal beauty Insisted upon.
There was a time not so long ago
when the hands of the School Board
would have been held up In horror had
one mentioned to a class of girls that
they not only might possibly grow In.
to beautiful women, but that lt was ex.
pected of them and part of their school
duties to become living exponents of
grace and charm.
The gradgrlnds of old have vanished
from the School Board, and Instead of
"facts, nothing but facts," Ideals of
womanly grace aud beauty are being
put before the growing girl.
The high school graduate choosing a
business career of any kind stands a
better chance of success lf her physical
training has been such as to make her
body the Instrument of her mind. It
Is bodily poise which, having become
second nature, Is going to help the
young woman to conoentrate her mental faculties and gain poise of mind as
Physical training, like every other
routine work, is apt to degenerate into
a mere matter of exercises without any
particular aim, and the salvation of the
entire work Is to start with a definite
picture In mind of what one wishes to
attain. The requirements of girls and
women of the present day, asi regnrds
physical culture, can be summed up In
these words—physical endurance and
grace—and this Is the equipment of the
girl from the Technical High School.
The average woman's life Is Idled
with so many duties that she finds little
or no time In which to do physical culture exercises regularly. Then again
an exercise, no matter how well and
correctly done, If adhered to for, say,
ten minutes of the day, an never counteract the harm done the body by constantly standing and sitting Incorrectly during the rest of the day.
It lu to help the business girl whose
time will not allow of much special
physical exercise, but who wishes to re
tain her bodily health and grace, that
We seldom stop to think of this much
maltreated spine of ours and of how
great Its importance is to our daily
health, happiness and success. A man
Is spoken of as having no backbone lf
he is deficient in mental or moral courage, and lt is not merely a manner of
speech, for that same man's spinal col
umn Is as weak as his character.
If one has been sitting or standing
for any length of time with bent back
and shoulders, and then, taking a deep
breath, straightens out the spine, notice
the Instant relief. The back should
never be bent except as lt Is bent In ex
erclshig. Its natural position is straight
and lt Is in this position that the greatest exertion, both mental and physical,
can be borne.

The Convenient Light is the
Electric Light
You have simply to touch the button uud your office and room is brilliantly
lighted, falling over chairs; no matches; no uncleanliuess; no danger.
Electric lights can ho made portable, so that you can hang them over yonr
dressor or shaving mirror, at the head of your bed, etc., aud any desired
candle-power may bo obtained.
It is a Beautifying Light
Under its clear rays, faces and objects do not havo that pallid, dull appear-
nnoo that is caused by other lights; on the contrary, it shows off every,
thing to the best n dvantage. As musio adds to the beauty of a voice, so
does the electric light enhance tho beauty of a face, the brightness of n
smilo aud the spnrklo of the eyes.
IT HAS NO FLAME—it emits no unhealthy fuino^—It consumes on
oxygon and does not vitiate the air—therefore it does not oause 01 aggravate asthma or other pulmonary diseases. It does not leak, ignite or
explode. It will not kill plants or ruin wallpaper or furnishings. It is
everything that is best ns a light. Up-to-date establishments and people
of refinement use it.
