"Oh, speaking of vegetation, do
you think you could find mc somo
more vegetables'; This soup wants
carrots and onions—"
"It's a llrst rate soup," ha snid.
"Oh, thank you!" she retorted,
drily. "I was atr.tiil you didn't like
it.   You didn't say so."
"I beg your pardon," ha snid,
meekly.    "I was pondering over—"
"More important things. I'm
eorry," she caught him up in a
quick little wny thnt was so rare ns
to be charming.   "Please go on."
"I'm confirmed in my opinion that
the largest of the group of islands
lies on the southwest: and I propose
building a bont—it will be safer than
a raft—in which I—we—can make r.
cruise of discovery."
Sho listened earnestly and forgot
to serve him; then she remembered it,
and with a start begged liis pardon
and took his plntc.
"I also found more evidence ol
gold. Some of the quartz, or whatever thoy call it, show quite plainly
on the big stones or rocks in the dry
river beds."
"Yes. Do you like the ducks best
this way or stewed? I put it in an
empty tin amongst the ashes of the
fire.   Is it nil right—done enough?"
"It Is very good," he said, "lt is
a delightful dinner and 1 am enjoying .it. Where was I?—Oh, the gold.
And I think there is copper; in fact,
the place seems to abound in valuable minerals."
She nodded carolessly and sighed.
"We seem to find all the useless
things," sho said. "Now, if wed
been two persons in a book of adventure, cast on an uninhabited island, we should find all the useful
things, or the materials out of which
to make them."
"Ah," he said, rather resentfully.
"I always had, even as a boy, a
suspicion of fraud in those shipwreck
stories; but I littlo thought that tho
thing was so tragic and uncomfortable as it Is."
"I am sorry you are not comfortable," she said. Then she remembered the two she had lost and the
tears camo Into her eyes. He saw
them ond tried to divert her mind.
"We haven't tried tho old trick
they always perform in the adventuro
books—sending empty bottles with
'Wo are shipwrecked on an unknown
island.   Help us!    Rescue!' "
"I've only threo empty bottles nnd
I couldn't spare them," she suid.
"Ono is a rolling pin and worth its
weight in gold."
"Yes, but your people; their anxiety will bo, must bo, very great,"
ho said, gravely.
"I haven't any people," she replied.
"My father and I were alono in tho
world. I suppose we must have relatives, but I never heard of them.
wo Uvea lur unc --_..-U»_,r " Aftor n
pause she said, wilh her eyes on the
table: "If you would like to try to
communicate with your people I will
sacrifice my bottle."
He shrugged his shoulders. "It's
of no consequence."
Sho looked at him with almost
startled surprise.
"Your sister, brother? Why, surely
you have some one?"
"Why should I any more than
you?" he answered. "I haven't father or mother or a sister or a brother; and as to the rest of my people—
well," grimly, "they won't suller any
anxiety over my disappearance."
"Are you not going to smoke?"
she asked after a moment or two.
He thanked her and sat down on
the ground before tbo lire and lit liis
pipe. Ho was terribly tired, and
presently, as she glanced towards
him, .she saw his head full on his
breast—ho had fallen into a doze.
His attitude was an uncomfortable
one, and she longed to put something for him to lean ngninst. Tho
desire grew so intense—she told herself that it was only becnuse the
sight of him sitting so ".idgotted"

As she stood over him hesitatingly

it was, nwoko hlin; in a moment he
was on his feet and had seized her
arm in a-j.-asp of Iron, his vacant
jm*-faring ut her sternly. She
thought ho wns going to strike her,
but suddenly he was awuke fully und
Btaring at her with dismay.
"I~I beg your pardon!" he stiim-
merod. "I must have fallen asleep;
and I dreamt that tho Lascar hnd
coma back. I must havo thought
you were ho and—oh, I beg your
"If you'd let my arm go," sho snld
with a painful smile. "You nre hurting
it. I am glad I am not tho Lascar!"
Ho released her arm, and in doing
so saw that the ring was not on her
finger. He did not frown or show
surprise; but his face became thoughtful,  and ho avoided her eyes.
She, noticed tho subtle change in
his manner, though she did not discern  the cause.
"I will go now," she snid; it nlmost seemed a formula, "Give 1110
your coat, please."
"My coat?" ho repeated, vngiiely.
"Yes. You havo torn it; I will
mend it for you."
"Oh, don't troublo," hi snid, rather coldly. Why hail she taken off tho
ring? Was she afraid of liim—afraid
that ho would forget his promise?
His heart swelled with bitterness.
"Givo it me, pleaso,*'- she said with
her queenly air of command. "You
havo not too many coats, 1 know."
Obediently ho took off his coat and
she Hung it over her arm, wishing
him "Good night," and left him.
He refilled his pipo with her tobacco
—it was not half bad, but ho sighed
as he thought of his favorite brand
—and sat over tho firo smoking for
a time, then swiftly ht rose, resolved
to conquer his reluctance to take repossession of the hut. As he passed
hers ho saw that the light was still
He lit the pine torch at the door
and stood dead short at the threshold, astounded by the change sho
hnd wrought in the hut. Looking
round his eyes caught tho flowers she
had put on the table, nnd he took
them up and smelt them, then put
them down and frowned at them
thoughtfully. Why hnd she tnken the
trouble to turn out the hut, to niter
the nrrangement so thnt ho might
not bo haunted by tho memory of his
dend friend? Why had she put tho
flowers there for him? Something lit
a fire In his eyes, then they grow
dull. Sho had taken off his ring. It
was Just a woman's Idea of pity
that had impelled her to tidy up
and arrange the hut. With a sigh ho
set down the bottle of flowers and
began to undress.
Nina carried the coat to her hut,
and finding her needlo and thread, lit
tho ship's lnmp. Dut sho paused,
with tho coat in her lap, and turning up her sleeve looked at her arm.
The mnrks of his fingers showed on
tho white flesh. She held her arm to
tho dim light and looked at it with
a faint pensive smile. How strong
he was! His grasp had been liko
that of a vice. She hud felt that if
sho had moved her arm lt would
break. How strong he was, how
I handsome, and yet how gentlo to
I and considerate of her! He was
treating her with the chivalry of a
knight-errant. Yes, ho was good,
good! If she had met him, say in
London, under ordinary circumstances, and they had grown to know
each other iu the usual way, midst
all tho surroundings of civilization,
perhaps he might—she might—thoy
Tho color roso to her faco. Whither were her foolish thoughts leading
her? With a gesture of self-rebuke
she took up tho coat and mended tho
worst rent tho bushes and undergrowth had made in it. Sho could
not do much for him, but at any
rate ho should not go'about in a
ragged coat.
As she turned it over something
fell from the breast pocket. Sho
groped about on tho ground and
presently camo upon a small, flat
leather caso. She turned it ovor
nnd over curiously, then put it on
tho table. Whatever it wns it did
not concern her. It might contain
bnnk notes, letters—no; it wns not
bulky enough for thnt; it wns just
simply a flat case. It haunted,
mocked, foscinntod lier. Sho tried to
keep her eyes from it, to concentrate
her attention on the coat, but the
thing seemed to exercise a power
over her; nnd at lust, with a gnsp
of shame, sho snatched it up.
It     was   lasieileil      by   nu      ul illnnry
closp, and, pressing it, it flew open
slowly and revealed Ihe portrait of a
womun. It wns a colored miniature,
and of so lovely a face, of such almost perfect beauty, that Nina's first,
emotion was one of unalloyed admiration. Tho eyes were blue, the complexion a delicatn ivory—old ivory—
tho hair a rich auburn. The neck
wns bare, perfectly modelled nnd ol
snowy  whiteness.
Admiration at first; but suddenly
it gave place to—what? The blood
roso to Nina's face, her eyes darkened and grew hard. Hor bosom—as
white, by the way, as that of tho
portrait—roso and fell with instinctive resentment, and her breath come
He carried a woman's portrait in
his pocket—over his heart!. Her own
heart grew cold, then burnt hotly.
Sho put the miniature closo to the
lamp and studied it. There was some
writing at the bottom of it:
"To my dear Vane.   Judith."
Tho words struck her like so many
strokes of a dagger. Her "dear
Vane."   Herol
Who was sho, this beautiful, perfectly beautiful woman?
With a sudden thrill of relief that
seemed to set the blood running in
her veins again she thought that it
might bo his sister. Then, cold as
Ice once more, she remembered that
he had snid he had no sister.
Her hnnd closed spasmodically over
the portrait, and she roso in passionate indignation and resentment.
This portrait she hnd found in tho
pocket of her liiislinntl's coat— Her
htisbund! Her husband I Ah, yes;
but her husbnnd in nnme only. He
hnd married her under compulsion;
ho hud fought, argued ngninst the
marriage. No wonder, wilh the portrait of this beautiful womnn on his
breast! Oh, whut should sho do,
whnt should she do?
With it gesture of loathing nnd despair she flung the tnjiiiiitui-i. from
her and, sinking into the chair, buried her fuce—in  his coat.
Nina lay awake nil that night.
Wcdtled to a man who married her
against his will, und who carried tho
portrait of another woman—and how
beautiful a woman—in his breast
Dut .Mannering slop soundly, roso a
little after the wondrous tlnwn and,
having got through his usual work,
W'cnt to tho saloon. Nina wns not
there and he saw thnt breakfast was
only luid for one. She came in ns he
was pondering ijjttfels fact, came in
i% PILLS   rf
with a quick step    and said,  In
matter-of-fact way: H^^
"Good-morning. I have had my
breakfast"—she had not been able to
eat anything. "I had so many things
to do. Havt you got everything you
"Yes, thanks," ho said, absently.
Something in her tone, a coldness
and aloofness, struck him; and glancing at her he saw that sho was paler than usual and that her eyes wero
"I hopo you are not overworking
yourself," ho said, earnestly. "There
is really no need for it. Wo havo
plenty of time to do what is necessary; and I could holp you In ever
so many ways. For instance, for tho
future you must let mo bring tho
water from the spring; tho can is
heavy.   And I will light the fire."
She laughed, but mirthlessly. "And
do the cooking, and lay the table,
and wash up the things; and I could
ait by with some fancy work and
watch you. Oh, no, I am not working too hard; if it wore not for the
work I should—" "go mad," she
was going to say; but sho stopped
short and mado a gesture of impatience. •
"I am going to sot about that
boat," ho said; "but I shall ba back
to lunch."
"Oh, I've tied up your lunch for
you," sho said, coldly, pointing to
the package.
"Very well," ho responded, almost
meekly. "Perhaps it will be better; it
will savo time."
"There Is your coat," sho Said,
taking it up and holding it out to
"Thank you," he said, simply, as
he put it on. Ho did not know that
her eyes wero raised to his searching-
ly, almost accusingly. "I'm afraid
you sat up late last night to mend
lt. I saw tho light in your hut. I'm
sorry. I'll bo more careful in the future.   You look tired this morning."
"I'm not in the least tired," sho
retorted with a littlo snap in her
voice, usually so calm and low. "If
you do not want anything else—"
Sho went out and Mannering turned to his breakfast again; but her
coldness, her strangeness had spoiled
his appetite. What was tho matter
with her? Sho had removed his ring
from her finger, was stand-ofiMsh and
sharp with him.
With a sigh he pushed his plato
away from him and shouldering his
gun went off to the woods, Nina
watching him from her partly opened
Mannering selected the biggest
tree, felled it end. scooping out a
length of tho trunk, made u fairly
good canoe.
It was a tremendous day's work
and he regarded it with ptirdonablo
pride; but he was too tired to haul
it down to the beach and he left it
When he entered the saloon she
was standing by the tulile. He saw,
with a sigh of relief, that it was
laid for two. Dut she hnd on her old
frock, and the bit of ribbon was absent from her neck; nntl she senrcely
lifted her long lnshes as he wished
her "good evening."
"I hope you're better," ho Bald,
blundering like a man.
Sho bit her lip impatiently.
"I have not been ill," sho said
with ominous emphasis, as she passed him his plate.
"I'vo finished the bont," ho said,
trying to speak as if ho did not notice her coolness.
She fixed her eyes on the pinto.
"Why did tho raft not do?" she
"Oh, it is not nearly ns safe as a
bont. I could not steer it or sail it
as well. I mado the raft because"—he
hesitated and stammered—"there is
no immediate hurry now. Oh"—hastily—"this boat—it's only a canoe-
Is ever so much better! I'm hoping
that we shall be able to roach one of
the Inhabited islnnds; perhnps, if we
have luck, trre mainland."
Her faco grew set and her lips
camo together straightly as lf sho
wero bracing herself to nn effort.
"And—and—if wo do, Mr. Mannering?" sho said in a low voice, which
nalpitated with her agitation, "what
will you do? Will you tell tha people
we meet that—that wo are married?"
Mannering gazed at her blankly, aa
lf he were trying to see what waa
passing In her mind.
"I—I don't know; I haven't thought
of lt," he stammered, his face flushing. "What—what would you wish
mo to do?"
"I—I would rather you did not,"
she replied. "I—I want to make a—a
—bargain with you."
"Yes?" he aaid, interrogatively.     '
She raised her eyes and looked him
steadily, bravely, ln the face.
"I want to tell you that I know
how great a sacrifice you made ln
mar—in doing what poor Mr. l'lom-
lng wished."
"Aa to that—the sacrifice was
yours," he put In eagerly, earnestly;
but sha ignored his Interruption and
went on:
"If we escape to England—and, oh,
I hope and trust wt may!—I want
you to understand that—that tha
marrlaga, what we havt done—
hasn't any meaning, significance;
that we ahall part as lf—as lf lt had

Her voire broke and the tcara burnt
ln her ayes; but she drove them
back and continued:
"And I want you to promise that
you will tell no one—that you will
never make any claim on ma."
Ha waa allent for a moment or
two, his eyes bent on his plate.
"I understand, and, of course, I

rather grimly. "I know how you'

Find New Health Through the Use of
Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills.
When you see a young girl pale and
ailing and wasting away, you know
that budding womanhood is making
new demands upon her blood supply
which she cannot meet. Month after
month her health, her strength, her
very life, is being drained away. No
food and no care can do her any
good. Common medicine cannot savo
her from broken health and a hopeless decline. New blood Is the one
thing that can make her a healthy,
cheerful, rosy-cheeked girl. And Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills actually make
new blood with every dose. That is
the whole secret of how they have
saved thousands of pale, anaemic
girls from an early grave. Miss
Alice Chaput, aged 17 years, living
at 475 St. TImothee street, Montreal, gives strong proof of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to cure. "A couple
of years ago," says Miss Chaput, "I
was an almost continuous sufferer,
and became so weak I could hardly
go about. I suffered from frequent
and prolonged spells of dizziness, I
had frightful headaches, and my
stomach was completely out of order.
The least exertion would leave me
worn out and breathless, and I did
not appear to have a drop of good
blood in my body. I consulted a
doctor who told me the trouble was
general debility,, but .his treatment
did not help me a particle. To add
to the trouble my nerves gave way,
and I often passed sleepless nighls.
At. this stage a friend advised me to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, nnd I
got a few boxes. The first benefit I
noticed from the use of the pills wns
an Improved appetite, and this seemed to bring much relief. I continued
taking the pills until I had used six
boxes, when I was fully restored to
health, and I havo not had a day's
Illness since. I cannot praise Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills enough for the
great good they havo done me."
A pale anaemic person needs only
one thing—new blood. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills do one thing only—they
mako new blood. That Is all they
do. but they do lt well. Tbey don't
act on the bowels. They don't bother
with mere symptoms. They won't
cure any disease that isn't caused originally from bad blood. But when
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills replace bad
blood wilh good blood they strike
straight at the root and cause of all
common diseases like headaches, sldc-
aches, backaches, kidney trouble,
liver complaint, biliousness, indigestion, anaemia, neuralgia, sciatica,
locomotor ataxia and the special secret troubles that every woman
knows but that none of them like to
tnlk about, even to their doctors.
But you must have the genuine pills
or you can't be cured, and the genuine always hnvo the full namo, " Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People," on the wrapper around the box.

others, she was cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"I was eight months an Invalid,"
says Mrs. Adams, "and no one can

I had Bright's Disease and Sciatica,
but I got no relief from anything he
gave me. At last a friend of my
husband Induced mo to give Dodd's
Kidney Pills a trial. I had no faith
In them, for I thought I nover would
get better, but nfter taking three
of them I was nble to do my work. I
have had good henlth ever ainca I

Nothing so demoralizes an infant
and enslaves the parents as to take a
cross or wakeful baby from the bed
and walk him up and down the floor
during the night. The baby cries because it is not well—generally because its stomach is sour, Its little
bowels congested and its skin hot
and feverish. Relieve this and baby
will sleep soundly all night, growing
stronger nnd better every day. Just
what mothers need to keep baby
healthy and make him sleep soundly
is Baby's Own Tablets, which cure
all stomach, bowel and teething troubles and thus promote natural
health-giving sleep. Mrs. Wm.
Holmes, nacre, Ont., says: "My baby
was troubled with sour stomach and
wns constipated most of the time,
and was always cross and restless. T
gave him Baby's Own Tablets and
found them a complete success and
would not now be without them."

' Cnn Be No Fire I'nla-na There
Be Flame or Glow.
A novel and Interesting case has Just
been decided by the United States circuit court of appeals at St. Paul, ln
which tlie court laid down the rule that
while spontaneous combustion may become so rapid as to produce fire the
combustion cannot be said to be fire
until It has actually developed into n
glow or flame. The oplulou was iu the
case of the Western Woolen Mill company of Topeka, Kan., against tho
Northern of London, on appeal from
the federal court iu Kansas, where the
decision was in favor of tbe insurance
Tho Northern Issued two policies of
Insurance for $5,600 on a quantity of
wool stored ln the warehouse of the
woolen company In Topeka. The buildiug was submerged by the Topeka
floods In May, 1003, and the wool wan
thoroughly wet. After being submerged for eight dnys the wnter subsided aud the wool wns spread urotind
for the purpose of drying It. It soon
became heated and pitchforks had to
be used In handling It. While there
wus smoke nnd odor, uo flame wns to
be seen nnd no glow. The lower court
held that the evidence did not show
that the wool was damaged by Are
within tlie meaning of that term as
Used In tbe policy of Insurance.
This ruling was upheld by the court
of appeals. Judge Garland, rendering
Its declsiou, held thut "lire is always

He Was a Jealous Brute and Carefully Guarded Ilia Mistress.
During a visit to a friend In the
country Sir Henry Hnwkius had an adventure with a boarhound which he
describes in his "Reminiscences:"
There was an enormous Danish boarhound which had, unperceived by us,
followed Mrs. Harlstone from tbe library. He pushed by without ceremony and proceeded until he reached
the lady, wbo was some distance ln
advance. He then carefully took the
Bklrt of her dress with bis mouth and
carried lt like an accomplished train
bearer until she reached the bottom of
the stairs and the garden, when be let
go the dress and gazed as an Interested spectator.
But before we parted from Mrs.
Harlstone and while I was talking to
her I felt my hand In the boarbound's
mouth, and a pretty capacious mouth
It was, for I seemed to touch nothing
but bis formidable fangs. So soft was
the touch of his fangs that I was only
just conscious my hand was ln bis
mouth by now nnd then the gentlest
reminder. I knew nnlmnls too well to
attempt to withdraw It, and I preserved a calm more wonderful than I could
have given myself credit for.
While I was wondering what tho
next proceeding might be Mrs. Harlstone begged me to be quite easy nnd
on uo nccount to show any opposition
te the dog's proceedings, In which caso
Bhe promised that he would lead me
gently to the other side of the lawn
and leave me without doing tbe least
As I was being led nway Mrs. Harlstone said: "Do exactly as he wishes.
He Is Jealous of your talking to me,
and any one who does so he leads
away te tbe otber side of the garden."
Having conducted me to the remotest spot he could find, he opened his
huge jaws and released my hand, wagged his tall and trotted off, much pleased with his performance.

It makes all the difference in the
World in results whether you come to
your work every day with all your
powers Intact, with all your faculties
up to the standard; whether you come
with the entire man, so that you can
filng your whole life Into your task, or
with only a part of yourself; whether
you do your work as a giant or as a
pygmy. Most people bring only a small
part of themselves to their tasks. Tbey
cripple much of their ability by Irregular living, bad habits In eating and Injurious food, lack of sleep, dissipation
or some other folly. They do not come
to their tasks every moruiug whole
men. A part of themselves and ofteu
a large part Is somewhere else. They
left their energy where they were trying to have a good time, so tbat they
bring weakness Instead of power, indifference and dullness Instead of enthusiasm and alertness, to the performance of the most important duties of
their lives. The man who comes to his
work In the morning uurcfreshed, languid and listless cannot do a good, honest day's work, and lf ho drags rotten
days Into the year bow can he expect a
sound career or a successful achievement?
Good work Is not entirely a question
of will power. Often this Is Impaired
by a low physical standard. Tbe quality of the work canuot be up to high
water mark when every faculty, every
function and every bit of your ability
ls affected by your physical and mental
condition. You may be sure thnt your
weakness, whatever Its cause, will appear In your day's work, whether it Is
making books or selling them, teaching
school or studying, singing or painting,
chiseling statues or digging trenches.—

And   Insist   on   Having   the   Time-Tested
Dr. Chases'Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine
It Is not a question of whether you
will need a treatment for coughs,
colds and iwoup ln your home, but
the question is, will you select the
most effective medicine, or simply be
satisfied to take whatever your druggist happens to hand out to you?
Time snd experience have proven
that you can depend on Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine at
such times.
It is only necessary to remember
this when the critical time comes,
and to Insist on getting what you ask
Should you have children who are
subject to croup, you had better keep
a bottle of Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine In the house, for
when the choking spasm comes on
there ls little time to send for doctor
or medicine.
Mr. Wm. McGee, 49 Wright Ave,
Toronto, Ont., writes:
" There is no remedy ln my opinion
that can act more promptly than Dr.
Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine. It cured my son of croup,
absolutely, ln one night. We gave him
a dose when he was black ln the faoe
with choking. It gave him instant relief and cure."
It seems scarcely necessary to
dwell on the merits of Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine as
a cure for croup, bronchitis, whooping cough, etc. most of us have
known lt from childhood up. It la
almost as familiar as Dr. Chase's Receipt Book.
Being pleasant to the taste, lt Is
readily taken by children. Because it
brings quick relief to the sufferer
from asthma, bronchitis, whooping
cough and all the most serious diseases of the throat and lungs, lt ls
Invaluable as a household medicine.

Unlike man, the starfish which loses
one of Its "arms," or properly its rays,
grows a new one to take its place. Under certnln conditions It grows two to
take the place of one. A starfish may
lose all its rays without losing Its life,
and ver, often a cripple with but a single ray left Is found by fishermen and
collectors, When completely broken in
Iwo the starfish becomes two distinct
Ush. and the growing process continues. The brittle starfish. It Is believed,
in ninny Instances breaks off its own
rays at the approach of danger. For
Ihis reason lt Is difficult to obtain n perfect specimen.
A starfish can neither see nor bear.
Neither has lt the sense of smell. Iu
spiip of these seeming Impedimental,
nevertheless, It seeks and devours Its
prey ns neatly as an ordinary fish. Tbo
starfish lies upon its prey and folds its
"arms," or rays, completely nbout It.
Then It pushes Its stomnch out through
Ils mouth nnd will wrap even a largo
oyster and shell within the folds of the
stomnch. The nnuiUi of the starfish Is
In the center of Its rays.
Some great ships are today employed
almost wholly in seeking for starfish
specimens In deep seas, and there are
hundreds of men who spend a portion

the interests of science. Many of the
specimens collected by ships are taken

and his band of Crees, who fled to
Moutana after the Riel rebellion, but
who were preparing to return to Canada, had crossed the border. Mr
l^aird stated that he had heard some
rumor to the effect that the Indians
considered that they were not offeree

therefore not return to the Canadian

 It is a fatal waste of time to trifle with snuffs, powders,
inhalers, or other dangerous nostrums, with the idea of curing
Catarrh of the Stomach. Once Catarrh has reached the
stomach it can only be eradicated by creating pure,
rich blood. Catarrh is a germ disease. The stomach and
intestines become nests for myriads of these tiny germs. Local
applications have no effect on them. They must be driven out
—the stomach cleansed, the blood purified, the system toned
up. "Psychine" will positively cure the worst form of
Stomach Catarrh, by purifying the blood, cleansing the
stomach, and destroying germ life. Thousands have been
cured of the prevalent malady, through this remarkable dis-
covery, " Psychine."   Druggists recommend it.

A Weird Day at Dnie Gleem In tbe
English Metropolis
He knew his London well. We went
forth Into a fog that wss of the pea
soup variety. It seemed useless to
wait any longer for it to clear oil. The
days were all alike and were darker
than twilight ever dared to be. I clung
to Prentice Mulford's coat sleeve, for
I knew lf he were once to get beyond
my reach I could never hope to find
blm again. We groped blindly among
the streets, where the atmosphere was
only less palpable than the houses tbat
walled us ln. At Intervals we inquired
where we were, for otherwise we could
never have known at all. We had to
feel our wuy carefully and take soundings at Intervals. "Here," said Prentice as we paused In space; "here is
Temple Bar." I tbougbt I saw some-
thiug that might bave been the ghost
of an arch hewn out of the solid fog.
The top of It, though It was not lofty,
was lost to view. Temple Bar, now
gone forever from the place where Its
gates once swung in the wall of the
old city—lt was here her gracious
majesty Queen Victoria of England
was wont to recelvo the keys of the
city from the bands of the lord mayors
when she drove In state to St. Paul's
cathedral. We threaded Fleet Btreet,
but could not see to the farther shore.
"Here ls her majesty's tower," said
Prentice, but nothing of It was visible,
not one stone upon another. We crossed London bridge almost without
knowing it Tbe waters of the Thames,
which are but condensed fog, were invisible from tbe parapet, and the steam
ferries were picking their way cautiously and looking very like marine
monsters ln a muddy aquarium. We
crawled through the tunnel fer foot
traffic under the Thames, which was
like a hole In the fog, and for hours
carried the sky about on our shoulders.
It was a woolly, greasy and 111 smelling
sky. Our nostrils were clogged with
cinders, like chimney flues, and there
were smudges all over onr faces.
Sometimes for a moment er two we
saw a spot overhead that was like a
pale red wafer, and we knew lt for
the sun, now lost to us. The lamps
that burned all day were like glowworms for dimness, and so we explored the wonders of the town and bsw

The cry is that the theological student of the day is being trained to
think the world should take care of
liim, rather than that the laborer
should strive to make himself worthy
of his hire. Mayhap the charge is
sustainable, but of a certainty' taking the country over) there is the
greatest need of the pew, in a large
number of the churches being trained
to keep its salary covenants with the
ministerial workers they engage. It
is required that the pastor shall be a
man of culture, and presentable as to
appearance, and that he and his family shall maintain at least a decent
standard of living. But how much
responsibility do the members feel
individually for the bringing about
of these results? Often, after the
representatives of local churches
have appeared before the bodies that
perform the office of the assignment
of pastors to charges, and they have
deliberately promised that the minister's salary shall be paid promptly
and regularly, they default, and place
the uitforttiinate clergyman in that
most humiliating position of begging
for small portions of large sums due,
in order that he may keep llis family

from actual want of the barest necessaries of life.
It is not considered etiquette for
the pastor to press his debt on the
attention of the officers of the church
There may be due to him hundreds
of dollars, but it would be shockingly
indelicate of him to ask for a conference of the church officers to consider ways of giving him his dues.
.Occasionally a. pastor, nioTc (independently placied than) others, will
have the temerity to take his deacons to task for not fulfilling the promise they made when engaging him,
and likely as not he will be met with
the dishonorable statement that the
promise was only a matter of form.
Many church officers, apparently,
regard their pastors as a pensioner
whom they can insult and impose
upon financially, treating him as they
would never dared treat their coal
dealer or butcher. Such dishonesty
not only entails privation and anxiety on the minister and family, but
it also places him in a most disagreeable position, and compels him to
accept as gratuities much that he-
would pay for if he had what is due
Were any other class of employers
to withhold wages, as church officials
do the salaries of their ministers, the
press of the country would team with
denunciations, and public sentiment
would not be long in compelling justice to be done the employee. The
pastor, however,, 'cannott appeal to
the press, nor can he get up mass-
meetings to ventilate the injustice
dune him. He must suffer in silence
as he has done for this long time.
But there is no reason why all the
denunciation, so widely current at
the present time, should be centered
wholly upon politicians and insurance officials. As there is ethical
house-cleaning going on, there is
every reason that the church officials
who act dishonorably toward pastors
in financial matters, should not be
included among those who arc held
lip for the reprobation of the community. By their financial dealing
with their pastors, many churches set
a contemptible example of oppression of the helpless, and it is to be
hoped that some day they will be
brought  to book.

Cachemires are being recognized
as the most desirable, as they arc extremely fashionable materials for
war at the winter seaside resorts,
cither near town or far along the
south Atlantic coast. This fabric
may be made to express an almost
rgld severity hy avoiding other trimming than a few molds of itself, or,
hy the use of handsome laces, it be-
, -mes at mice a smart affair, after
Ihis manner as an  example;
■White Cachemire Coctume.
The same costtipie in all white, including not only the velvet accessaries, but the hat and parasol, with
the exception of the lace, which to
V in a modish contrast should be in
ilitt yellowish butter tint, or the
darker twine color, selecting for that
purpose sonic one of the antique
luces. There is slill so strong a pre-.
' retire for Irish lace that in aU cases
this lace has to be excepted, and in
one case, can anyone imagine any-
tning more charming than the foundation of hat, jacket, and parasol a;
well as stole of skirt, when of Irish
lice, in its milk whiteness. Thus
it is lhat these cachemires do h-.-
.- inn- affairs of full dress, whereas
the same ideas, carried out less extravagantly, also nial-.c up for smartness most successfully.
Light  Colored Cnchcniire.
Be.iiles all that fan be said in  fav
or of white cachemire, wc have but
to choose in the pale pastel colors
—one of the many—to set about
planning other pretty costumes on
the same line with dyed laces which
are to this date so modish.
The choicest of these cachemires
are the lavender-grays, the pink and
the yellow-toned fawns, all the beige
tints, even those approaching whiteness. They hace a quality ditinction
of theirown. As for the lightblttcs,
rose pinks and mauves the dyed
laces rather throw a common, or garden air over such costumes, whether
from too great abundance of color
combined, or the fact that the lace
and cachemire in such tints do not
produce a refiner harmony. But it
is all a matter of argument, once
fashion smiles on these vivid results.
Ribbons Trade.
Tinsel ribbon is one of the new
things in millinery. Last year the
gold and silver tinsel ribbon were
used, but the season brings out the
lustre finished ribbons in colors. It
has the same effect as the gold and
silver ribbons, only it reflects a pale
lavender,   pale  blue,   pale   green   and
other  delicate colorings.
Much ribbon is employed in the
making up of the newest neckwear
pieces, and it is used with excellent
results. Some of the dainty collars
show ribbons embroidered in floral
designs, and leaves done in chiffon
or taffeta. There are a great number of jabots of Ohantilly lace in the
high-class numbers which show
French ribbons embroidered. Ribbon people are making a splendid
thing out of the neckwear trade.
Dressmakers declare there is an
appreciable swell in the newest skirt-
model lines, whicll fail completely to
define the figure as heretofore. For
tunately, no one is paying particular
attention to it, and the fullness of
skirts continues to be concentrated
at the foot. But are we to inter
prct by it a hidden motive to accus
torn the eye, in other words, to an
ticipate future changes which will
necessitate shore crinolines? The
saving condition under present
modes, requiring such full skirts, is
the lightness and suppleness of the
materials used, which cling to the
figure, and allow the grace of move
ment to be quite perceptible. As
long as all fabrics remain in this
light weight, we may consider our
selves safe from wire tapes or other
artificial skirt supporters.
In order to give a skirt for a stout
figure the effect of fullness and yet
not to enlarge the hip effect, the
skirt was cut circular from the side-
front seams and groups of sun-plaits,
five in number, starting from one
inch wide at the waist-line, jtnd flaring out wider towards the hem, were
pressed in the cloth. These groups
were about three inches apart and
the skirt fitted tight over the hips
making the effect of a plaited skirt,
as the fullness at the bottom allowed
the plaits to stay in place. This
skirt gives no added bulk to the hips
and has the effect of a kilted skirt.
