-Julian went to her and turned Iter
"Head!" he said. "Head, quite
dead, it wus u pity you stayod,
pussy! Hut it would have killed a
man, to say nothing of a cat—" He
stopped suddenly with his eyes fixed
on tiie unfortunate cat. "It would
have killed n man. unless lie wero
protected as I nin.   Killed a man!"
Ho took up tho cat ami examined
it closely. It was rigid with death,
its eyes staringly opon, ils teeth
"No one could withstand it," he
muttered, "A cat has nine lives, so
they suy, a man only one. Poor
Suddenly ho started. There hntl
come a knock nt the door, lie stood
staring above his bandage from the
eat to the door. Then he cuught up
the dead animal, tossed it unceremoniously into a cupboard, opened
the ventilator to its widest, removed
the protective muslin from his face
and, after watching the fumes disappear tlirough the ventilator, open-
cd tho door.
"Oh, it's you, Vane," he said,
casually.   "Conic In."
"Phew!," said Vane. "What an infernal stink! What on earth have
you been doing?"
"Only an experiment, quite an ordinary experiment,'" answered Julian.
"Come in."
Success Is sweet, we are told, but
tho sweet was embittered to Nina by
tho sight of Judith at the theatre,
though she tried to be grateful to the
Providence which had rescued her
from poverty, given her so good a
friend as Polly, and, ah, best of all,
provided work for her.
Blessed work! The curse which we
havo changed into a blessing; and not
more blessed to any man than the
urtist, whoso one prayer, after he
has finished one task, is, "Give m>s
strength for the next!"
Nina sprang nt Mr. I—ircourt's suggestion thnt she should write a long
piny, and she set to work ut it ut
once with feverish energy; for she
knew that only by brain toil, the
toil the nrtist delight in, could she
escape from brooding over the past
nnd the fate that had linked her to
a man who was in love with the
beautiful creature she had seen ln the
box at the theatre.
But If Nina's joy was dimmed, Polly's shone brightly,
, "I can see your future as plainly
as one of those fortune-telling people
ln Bond Street," sho declared solemnly to Nina. "You are going to
bo a famous authoress and play writer like—" She mentioned two or
three of the ladies who have scored
success as dramatists and so broken
the spell which has so long rested
upon women writers for the stage.
"You are going to be famous, lieci-
ma. Why, you are famous, already!
Haven't you had most wonderful
notices; nnd aren't the stalls nlmost
full when the first piece begins? A
thing unheard of till 'The Betrothed.' And wouldn't you like to have
better rooms, nnd have a maid of
your own,   like Miss Tracey?"
But Nina shook her head nntl
"No, no, Polly. Let us go on as
we are. Who knows? This next piny
may bo a failure, and then—then wo
should have to go back to.the millinery business."
"Not you! You've seen the last of
bonnet-building!" retorted Polly, confidently. "Dut, oh, I do hopo you
won't bo so silly and wicked as to
overwork .yourself. You are looking
pale and thin—no, it's no use your
denying it; I can see quito plainly.
You don't take enough exercise; nnd
I'm sure you want it. I've reud somewhere thnt literary people ought to
spend nearly all their time in tho
open air."
"You'ro thinking of ronsumptlves.
I fancy. Polly," suid Nina; but sho
knew there was .sound sense in tho
suggestion, and she went out more
There are worse places in the enrlv
autumn thnn the London parks—one
sometimet, wonders whether Londoners are as intimate with those parks
as thoy ought to be—nnd Nina found,
in this, the dead season, that they
wero almost as lonely as a country
lane. There is one part of Hyde Park
—whicll wild hot-si's shall not indiiro
mo to indicate—whero one could
wnntler to and fro for hours without
moeting a fellow human heing; and
It was hero she found tho plot of
her new play and worked out Its
characters nntl scenes, coming home
In tho afternoon to put the thing on
paper. During theso hours sho wus
almost happy; it was at night, us
sho trletl to sleep, and in tho early
hours of i*,. morning when she lay
nwako count iiiK them ns they were
boomed by Dig Hen, who hath no
pity upon the sick nnd the sleepless
who lie within hearing of his loud
and Insistent tongue, that her unsatisfied heart rcied, "I am ahungered;
givo mo food!"
Now and again  she stole    to    her
■cat at tho  back  of  the upper circle '
at  tho  Momus   nntl   looked     nt     her j
littlo piny,   and   of  courso   sho     saw ]
its many faults    moro plainly    each
visit, nnd   lenrned   the  loHson    which
can  only bo  learned  by theso   faults
of ours..
Sometimes Bhe stayed to the end of
tho musical piece nnd went round to
tho stngo door to wait for Polly;
nnd one night she hnd whnt I'ully
would hnvo  called  an  adventure. I
She was ntunding in the passup-o
near the doorkeeper's den, tho piece
was Just over nntl some of the men
nnd women already leaving the theatre. As a rule they wero all too
tired or too much engaged in talking

but to-night a super, who hatl been

st "pping, eyed her with a tipsy

Before he could suy another word
or touch lier, there came u light,
firm step ulong the passage, und a
gentleman hurried down it. lie wus
u young nntil, with a handsome and
pleasant face, In which a pair of
frank und boyish blue eyes were the
most noticeable feature. They were
quick, us well us good-looking eyes,
and he saw, in a moment,' whut wus
going on. Without u word his bund
fell on the man's shoulder and ho
swung him round towards the doorway us i:' hu were u skittle, und not
ti heavy one at thut. The man looked round with nn angry outli, but it
tlied on his lips, untl with u sullen
"All right, my lord!" he- went unsteadily on his way.
'I'he young fellow was about to
follow, when, hesitatingly; he stopped antl raised his hut.
"I'm afraid the man wns making
himself a nuisance," he said, and his
voico wns us frank and pleusnnt as
his eyes. "Vou—you have not been
frightened, I hope?"
"Not in tlie very least," Nina replied, "lie hud only spoken a few
words before you came up. But I am
very much obliged to you for sending him away."
She ditl not color, or seem a whit
embarrassed, but met his guze of
frank but quite respectful interest
with the conventional ease which is
the  lady's birthright.
"I am very glad," he said, in "tho
tone in which one addresses un equal.
"Aro you waiting for anyone? Shall
I go  buck and  bring them  up?"
"No, thanks," said Nina. "I am
waiting for—ah,  here she comes!"
lie looked round and saw Polly
hurrying  tlown   the  pussage.
"Oh, Miss Uainsford!" he said, and
he raised his hat. Then he added, after a pause: "This ludy might wait
in the green-room, Aliss Bainford."
"Oh, thank you, my lord!" said
Polly, gratefully,
"Thank yoll," Nina also said, "but
I shall not eome again."
He raised his hat once moro and
left  them.
"Well?" said Polly as they got into the cub. "Aren't you going to
nsk who that was?"
"I wasn't, but I will," said Nina
with n smile. "Whoever he is, he Was
very kind. A stupid man spoke to
me  anil—"
"Und Sutcombc knocked him
down! It's just what he would do!"
"It's just whut he didn't do, I'm
glnd to sny," Raid Nina, smiling.
"That would have been too severe a
punishment for a piece of unconscloui
Polly stared at her. "Lor'I I
should have thought you'd have been
glad if ho'd dono it! What a strange
girl you are! But I see! Of courso
you wouldn't like tho fuss. Yes; that
was Lord Sutcombc. He's the son of
an enrl or a duke, or something."
"Antl whnt may a son of a duko
be doing behind tho scenes at tho
Momus'.1" nsked Nina, but without
any great  interest.
"Oh, thev say he's backing Mr.
Harcourt—gut a share in tho theatre. And he's fond of tho stage;
there's n good ninny swells like
him; they're never happy unless
they're behind. But he's not a stage-

They had lived together in a London

he said, standing before the fire and
looking at it absently. Her soft eyes
rested on his face with gentle scrutiny for a moment or two, then sho

"What is it, Sutcombc?"
He started slightly and smiled at
her rather shamefacedly, lt did not
occur to him to evade the question,

"Something that happened to mc

of the little adventure.

j simple empirical law concerning the
distance at which the several planets
move about the sun, and his formula
embraced so large a number of cases
with accuracy that they were compelled to believe lt arose in some manner
from the primitive conditions of the
planetary system.      ,
There  were certain perpetual orbits
ln which a meteoric stone    or    minor
planet might move forever wi.hout col

as to croBS and recross the exact perpetual orbit, always remaining close to
If the slightest departure Inevitably
Increased as time went on the orbit was

to only a slight wavlnesa ln the path
described it was stable. They thus arrived at another distinction. There were
perpetual orbits, but some, and Indeed
most, were unstable, and these did not
offer an Immortal career for a meteoric
stone; and there were other perpetual
orbits which were stable or persistent.
If a complete solution for our solaj-
system were attainable we should find,
said the professor, that the orbits of
tho existing planets and satellltles were
numbered among the stable perpetual
After discussing ln some detail the
nebular hypothesis, Prof. Darwin
sketched the evolution of a rotating liquid planet like the earth, which was
the first stable species of our family,
and dealt with the Influences of tidal
oscillations. In the retrospect both
day and month were found continuous
ly shortening. The system might be
traced back to a time when the day and
month were identical In length, and
were both only about four or five of
our present hours.
The Identity of the day and month
meant that the moon was always opposite to the same side of the earth; thus
at the beginning the earth always presented the same face to the moon, Just
as the moon now always shows the
Bame face to us.
Moreover, when the month was only
some four or five of our present hours
ln length, the moon must have been
only a few thousand miles from the
earth's surface — a great contrast with
the present distance of 240,000 miles.
Prof. Darwin said that lf at every
moment since the birth of the moon
tidal friction had always been at work
In such a way as to produce the greatest possible effect, we should find that
sixty million years would be consumed
ln this portion of evolutionary history.
The true period must be much greater, and it did not seem unreasonable to
suppose that 500 to 1,000 million years
might have elapsed since the birth of
the moon.
Dealing with the different estimates
of tho physicists and tlie geologists,
Prof. Darwin said that from a calculation of tho sun's total output of heat
It seemed to be Imperatively necessary
that the whole history of the solar system should be comprised within some
twenty millions of years.
Now we know, he said, that the earth
oontains radioactive materials, and It
was safe to assume that it forms In
some degree a sample of the materials of the solar system; hence it was
almost certain that the sun ls radioactive also.
Dean Swift Did Marry Stella.
The discovery of an unpublished letter ln the library of Christ Church, Oxford, clears up the literary mystery of
Dean Swift's relations with Stella Tho
letter was written by the Rev. Dr.
Evans, Bishop of Meath, to Archbishop
Wake, and Is dated July 27, 1723. The
Bishop writes:
"There was reported to bo a promise
of marriage between a young woman
named Miss Van Omrlg and the Dean.
She designed to give him all her fortune, which was about £5,000, but on
discovering that the Dean had already
been married to Mrs. Johnson, daughter of Sir William Temple, she became
Indlg.iant and made a new will."
The letter corroborates In detail the

Births In Britain.
The British birth rate has been steadily declining In recent years, and the
latest report shows tho lowest rato on
record—27 per 1,000 for London and
29.2 per 1,000 for 75 largo towns. This
scarcely exceeds the death rate, which
must become the greater within a few
years. Sanitation has reduced the death
rate, particularly among Infants, and
this alone has postponed the beginning
of race decline beyond the present time.
The falling off ln the birth rate, due
partly to selfishness and love of pleas-
ore, and partly to our strenuous modern living, ls most serious among the

Hew  It   Came lo  ne   Applied   to  Articles of Coniuierce.
The word "staple," applied as an adjective to distinguish certain articles
of commerce, had its origin in England
In the early part of the thirteeuth century. The merchants of the staple
were tbe flrst and most ancient and
were so called from their exporting the
staple wares of the kingdom—namely,
wool, leather, skins, lead and tin. Tho
king's staple wno established in certain
towns, and certain goods could not be
exported without being first brought to
those towns and rated and charged
with the duty payable to the king. The
grower of wool conteutcd himself at
first with the sale of lt at his own door
or at the next town. Thence arose a
class of men who bought lt from him
and became a medium between the
grower and tbe foreign cloth merchants. In 1319 the company had the
legal form of a corporation and waa
the oldest mercantile corporation ln
England. Edward II. bad for the better collecting of duty on wool ordained
thut the staple for lt should be a certain town in the Netherlands, aud Antwerp was Uxed upon. It was afterward successively removed to Bt
Omer's, Bruges, Brussels, Leuvaln,
Mecklln aud Calais. Iu 1353 the staple
was fixed at Westmiuster, which caused ao great a resort of traders that
from a village lt was raised te the dignity of a town. In 1378 it was removed
to tbe place still named Staple Inn, in
Holborn. Hence "staple goods" are
smeh as have been duly appraised and
have paid the regular customs duties.
A ttoet of Painters Followed Him la
Depleting Peaiant Life.
In hia own words Millet tiled to depict "tbe fundamental side of men and
things." His subject was the peasant
life—not the representation of lt such
aa one sees ln opera or the pretty, sentimental aspect of lt, but the actual
drama of labor continuously proceeding through the four seasons, the "cry
(if the soul," echoing ln tho hearts of
(he patient, plodding, God fearing tollers. Everything was typical. We have
apoken of his "Sower." Of another picture the critic Castagnary wrote: "De
you remember bis 'Keeper?' He might
have reaped the whole earth I"
Everything that Millet did waa full
of a deep seriousness and sincerity. He
never waa an "easy" painter, so that
bla greatness as an artist la perhaps
more clear in the black aud wblte than
ln the colored subjects. Certainly ln
bis crayon drawings, lithographs nnd
etchings he proved himself to be one
of tbat limited number of artists who
may be reckoned master draftsmen.
Moreover, the character that he expresses la of tbat grand and elemental
quality which sometimes reminds us of
Michael Angelo.
Millet's Influence produced a host of
painters of the peasant, among whom
the strongest are the Frenchman I.'Hcr-

like him, have represented their subject wltb sympathy aud with understanding also.—St. Nicholas.

Winnipeg's   New   Suburban   Site   the
Most   Beautiful    in    ine
Canadian  West.
Winnipeg's new residential sub-division, Tuxedo Park, wliich has been
tallied of considerably during the past
few months will shortly be placed on
the market. ThiB Is the most pretentious and most elaborate sub-div-
isiou ever made in Winnipeg and in
tact excels anything of the kind yet
attempted outside of the older and
most aesthetic cities on the continent,
llie llrst. authentic announcement obtained regarding Tuxedo Park was
made recently hy Mr. Rickson Outhet,
ot New York and Montreal, who Is
one of the most celebrated engineers
and designers In America and makes
a specialty ot laying out city plots.
Mr. Outhet spent over a month in
Winnipeg, and previous to his departure for the south he wns induced to
disclose the purpose of his visit, ln
an Interview with a newspaper man,
he said: "My visit was entirely of
a professional nature. My services
were retained hy the Tuxedo Park
Co., of Winnipeg, nnd I have been engaged ln preparing plans which are
intended to convert tne Wright farm
which lies east of the new City Park
in St. Charles and has the agricultural
college in its midst, and is skirted on
the north by the Assiniboiue river, into Tuxedo park, which, in my opinion,
is destined to he the suburb beautiful
ol your city.
"Nearly three years ago," continued
Mr. Outhet, "Mr. F. W. Heubach, the
managing director of the company,
called at, my olllce In Tuxedo Park,
New York, autl gave me a rough outline of the lay of the land, its extent
and manifold advantages as a residential district, and asked me to prepare
a plan for its subdivision. This 1 did
ami in a mouth or so forwarded my
sketch for approval. The sketch was
submit ted to the board of directors
of the Tuxedo Park Co. last fall, and
did not prove entirely satisfactory.
Some changes were deemed necessary. These I made and again returned the plans. About six weeks
ago I receive:! a wire to come to Winnipeg, and since my arrival have
been liu Ily engaged upon the ground
preparing a new plan, which I am
confident will not only satisfy the directors of the company, but also strongly appeal to __ie progressive views of
your citizens. No, 1 cannot show
these plans. They nre hardly yet in
shape to bo examined by the press.
I can merely say that the Tuxedo
Park of Winnipeg will be 1n advance
ol anything before attempted In the
"The Wright farm, the property in
Question, as you know, runs lor a mile
along the prettiest part of the Assinl-
bclne river and back to the tracks of
the Cauadian northern Railway. Fur-
tiler west it adjoins the new city park,
wliile the Alanitobn agricultural college property is surrounded on three
sides by this magnificent tract.. These
two features alone insure rapid development of Tuxedo as a residential district, and guarantee large profits to
the   wise   investor.
'I'he bystem of diagonal avenues is
suro to be Immensely popular. The
idea ls copied principally from the layout of Washington, D. C, one of the
most beautiful cities in the world, and
although Instituted so long ngo as
I till, to-day represents one of the
most popular styles of landscape
architecture ever adopted. Of course
this system uses up considerable
more luntl, but the directors of Tuxedo park have not economized, either
In this wny or any other way, and I
believe their efforts to muko this now
subdivision the most beautiful ln the
west will certainly meet with the approval of all residents of Winnipeg
who ure Becking n suburban home.
Among tlie oilier features ls a large
reserve for athletic purposes and nn
admirable golf links, a parkway
drive, 110 reet lu width, will wind
along-the course of the — Bsittlbolno,
and ul] riverside houses will be, re-
qutred to luce in this direction. Another point Is that all sewers,, gaa
pipes, water mains and electric light
wires will be laid in the lanes. Thus
the streets and avenues, once asphalt
is laid, w.ll ulways remain Intact aud
"rrooiibly the most advanced Idea
is that of the speedway, which runs
almost around the suburb. It is laid
out so ns to provide, (1) regular roadway; I'd) bridle path; (3) horse speedway; (4) automobile speedway, besides boulevards, walks, etc. The
Speedway Is the longest straightaway
course 1n the world, and is a private
rend without any intersection. It Is
therefore entirely under the control
ot the Tuxedo company, and no limit
cnn be fixed by either municipal or
civic authorities upon the speed of
those using the same. Certainly this
should prove one of the greatest summer attractions to thoso Interested in
out-door sports. In a word, I firmly
believe that Tuxedo park, as it Is now
being developed, will prove ono of
tho most attractive, the most accessible and most pleasure giving suburbs In America. The plan is ideal;
tlio method of carrying lt out the most
Mr. Outhet expressed both pleasure!
and surprise at what he termed "this
great Winnipeg," and thb hope that
the work he had already done here
would result in his early recall to put
the finishing touches on the plans for
the suburb beautiful."

Another Idol Tottering.
Another famous saying is now disputed. Dr. Miller Magulre contends
that tlie Duke of Wellington never
said. "Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton." Wellington himself knew very little of the playing
fields at Eton. It Is quite true that
he was for a brief period at the famous school, but when his mother discovered that he was making
no progress whatever there, either at
games or at lessons, he was removed
fit about the age of fifteen, and sent

Managing     Editor    of    the    Yorkton
Of a verity tlie Canadian West is the
young man's country when the managing editor of a leading newspaper in
an important town, the centre of a
prosperous district is not yet twenty-
one years of age. In truth, the young
man who holds such a responsible position competently, nnd to the satisfaction of a largo list of subscribers,
must be beyond the ordinary in skill,
shrewdness, business ability, and
knowledge of men and things.
Mr. S. N. Wynn, of "The Enterprise," a newspaper of more than
passing influence and typographical
appearance, published in the town of
Yorkton, in the newly created Province of Saskatchewan, was born November 26, 1883, and although a few-
months havo yet to pass before he is
legally entitled to register llis vote
in public affairs, still he exercises con
sidorablc voico in mutters of general
interest" in tlio Province and district
where ho has mnde his home and place
of business.
He is a native of the Province of
Ontario, having been born in the town
of Palmerstou.
Aiiit obtaining a good English-education at the Public and High schools
of his native province, he began the
printing business seven years ago as
devil in the office of the Tribune newspaper of Toronto Junction, where his
lather and family reside.
Tho young novitiate in the art preservative of arts quickly realized that
the day of the typesetting machine
had arrived in the publishing business
and he took overy available opportunity to becomo a skilled and export operator. When this was accomplished
he looked beyond the comparatively
limited opportunities afforded a skilled
operator of a typesetting machine in
the printing ofiice of an eastern Ontario newspaper and realized the
chances offered in a country where
lack of years was au advantage rather
• than  a  drawback,  where  more    than

anywhere else in the wide world was
recognized tho truth of the saying
that youth must be served. Aud Mr.
Wynn came to Western Canada. Two
years ngo ho wont to Yorkton which
ho shrowdly believod would give him
an opportunity of advancement beyond
the manipulation of a typesetting machine.
A progressive town, the marketplace of un extensive and splend-'d agricultural district which was becoming
rapidly settled by enterprising and intelligent farmers, Yorkton gave every
opportunity for tho growth and expansion of a well-conducted local newspaper, and for a largo and lucrative
job-printing business.
A year ago, one year after his connection with the paper, Mr. Wynn was
appointed managing editor of the
Yorkton Enterprise, wliich is considered ono of tho most successful and
lone of the liveliest newspapers of
the country press of the Canadian
West, and has sinco addod 150 names
to the subscription list, which has now
passed the 1,0(10 mark and is still increasing. The Yorkton Enterprise is
not only a brightly written weekly newspaper covering the news of a wcll-set-
tlod, prosperous district, but has in
connection with it a well-equipped job-
'iprinting establishment where, largely
through modern machinery and- the
modern ideas of the managing editor,
.who is also the practical manager of
all the departmeuts, the highest class
work of a well-appointed provincial
printing office is turned out to supply

Bronchitis is too serious a disease

tnd teellngs of fatigue and languor
are among the tlrst symptoms.
The cough Is dry and harsh. There

A Bret Harte Joke.
Sam Davis of Nevada once made a
wager that he could successfully imitate the stylo of any living or dead
poet, and do it so thoroughly that the
difference was not discernible; and
that tlie public, the press, and the
critics would not detect the fraud. A_
a result he wrote "Binley nnd 4fi." ?o
which he signed F. Bret Unite's uuuie.
The fake was put out in u publication
known as "The Open Letter." lt
doscribed nn engineeei who took his
train through a snowstorm in the
Sierras, dying nt his post.
From the Atlantic to the Pacific the
poem was copied. "Binley alul 46"
was given a full page in "Leslie's
Weekly," with a portrait of Bret
Harte, and described as "tllie best
short poem of the decade."
It was many years before Mr,
Harte denied the authorship. The
poem has since ' been incorporated in
several books of popular recitations,
notwithstanding that Binley freezes
to death beside a roaring locomotive
furnace with one hundred and fifty
pounds of steam up antl two cords ol
wood within reach.—"Success Magazine.

To Electrify C.P.R.
It is learned that the Canadian
Pacific Company has decided to a-
walt the outcome of experiments by
the New York Central and New York
New Haven & Hartford Railway Companies before taking steps for the electrification of any part of its system.
Both the latter railways are spending
enormous sums upon experiments, the
former with a direct current and the
latter with a single phase alternating
current. The alternating current has
perhaps the advantage of cheaper Installation, lt does not yet seem to be
clear which system is preferable, and
while there is so much doubt and uncertainty the C.P.R. prefers to let electricity alone. Once the electrification
of steam railways on a large scale has
passed beyond the experimental stage
however, there ls little doubt that the
C.P.K. will be prepared to adopt the
system. They have accumulated u
lot of data on the subject, and will be
prepared to act ut the earliest possible moment. The line from Montreal
to Quebec will In all probability witness the lirst installation. All the electric power necessary can be obtain
ed from Shawinigan Falls, providing
the price Is satisfactory. That, however, it ls presumed, can easily be arranged.

Local Items. A Few Truths »£££&'?
At the meeting of the City Council,
^u committee, on Monday .evening, die
Aldermen evidenced a disposition to
evade flie Miiifa.t .question nud show
their procrastinating tactics iu this
particular line of civic business.
The by-law calls for $00,000 for the
bnildiug of a lirst class market, nud
that isnDt too much, if it is going to bo
something more hint— "au experiment."
Aldermeo Baxter, as n starter, moved
tthe reduction nf the amount to $65,000,
because a cold storage was provided for;
Aldonuau Bethune thought, f00 000 .too
pinch, aud favored placing the sum at
S80.000 for "au eap-aimeut"; Mayor
J3uscoinbe cousidcred the market "au
experiment" aud favored $80,000.
Aldermen Heaps, McDonnld and Mu
,Mi)J_j,u favored putting up a good
#naricot, and considered thero had been
too much delay. Aldcrmun Morton
moved that the cotnmittoo rise whioh
M-as duly carr—d, and, so, tho question
of a first-class market—where the farmers cun sell I heir produce direct to the
1 ■
consumers— was ngaju put off.
The people have declared by a large
number of votes that tbey waul a
market, want it on Westminster ave
uue, aud they havo also declared iu
(favor of Municipal ownership. Notwith
standing this expression of public opin
ion, the Aldermen have opposed the
market aud Municipal owuersh.p
Thoy will uot go forward ono step in
£ho markot matter without public
opinion expressing itself strongly.
Thoy have no right to throw cohl
water ou the venture by referring to it
as "nu experiment." If it should unfortunately proye "nn uuprolltuble experiment,'' the property could be sold
aiid not a cout )ost to the Oity.
Is ihere soma influence besides loyalty
to fhe voters controlling the City
(Council? Will tho Aldcrmau delay
actiou ou tbe market question, nntl
submit tho by-law in mid-summer.
When it is difficult to got voters to turn
out? However, we feel nssnrred the
ratepayers will be alive to their owu
interests and will be at t|ie polls to
* infirm theit voto cast last Jauuary.

According to the ordinary Socialistic
talk, only the Proletarian (a member of
the poorest cluss) is meek, a gentleman
and honest. The possession *f property
transforms one into a vaoilling coward,
possessed of the most sordid selfishness,
and utterly without good qualities of
nny kind. Then asks a writer in a
magazine the following questions:
Whero today is there ti Proletarian
leader of tho Socialist movement.
Where is the working-—ass man guiding
the destinies of his class, or engaged in
leading it? So fur ns I am nble to learu,
says this writer, the real leaders of
Siciulism are ''business men" It is

PoetB have been
foud of likcuin*
womuu to a flower,
Her fairness is
flowerlike. H*r
sweetness suggests
the flower fragrance.
Her very fragility
finds its type again
in the frail flower, which languishes when
neglected, and is so eaujly destroyed. It
is a pretty simile and ulniout at* pei'fcpt us
Al] women love flowers, and every woman
who grows them know-* that their health
depends on daily care. Not alone are
water and sunshine necessary to the health
of the plant. Their leaves and roots must
he guarded from the parasites which soon
destroy the flower's beauty and undermine
its life.
If a woman would care fur herself as ske
does for her plants she would preserve her
beauty and retain her strength fur beyond
the period when the average woman looks
old and feels older than she looks.
Of woman's preservation of her beauty
lies in the intelligent care of the womanly
health. So close is the relation between
the health of the delicate womanly orgaua
and the health of the whole body, that
whenever the feminine functions are deranged or disturbed the couseouences are
felt by every nerve iu the body. Severe
headache, backache, paift In the aide, and
bearing down pains are borne with by so
many thousands of women that one who is
in sound health is a rare exception. Most
women wVtld give anything to .tMOK>'how
to be cured. The way is very plain. Follow the path made by more than a balf a
million women who have been perfectly
cured of womanly ills and weakness.
"I believe I owe my life to Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and • Neasaut Pellets,' " says
Mrs. at ii i.i G. Ilayscl, writing from Brookland,
D. C "Six years ago, nfter the birth of one of
my children, I wan left lu o weak, run-dowu condition. My health teemed utterly gone. I suffered from nervousness, female weakness and
rheumatism, and I lUfftred everything one could
suffer from tlu*se com plaints. Ijleivn-a burden.

H'A uo relief. I tried stverjil patent medicines,
all with the name relttft. I began to (jet worse,
nnd tu arid to the complications I Kutfeii-d terribly from cptll tl potion, I chanced to sec on* of
your ndvcrtisonieuls and cmjcluded tu try tho
above remedies. J commenced to take Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription aud 'Pleasant
Pellets'and began to improve riuht away, and
continued improving and gaining in strength. I
cannot express the relief, ft was su great. Seven
mouths later my little daughter was born with-
put much trouble. I feel that I would never
have beeu able tu endure my confinement had
It not I»eeo for the help I received from Dr.
Pierce's medicines. My baby was a fine, healthy
child, and the only oue I hare ever been able to
unr ■'■ Sbe is now two years old and I have
never had to take any medicine since, so I feel
that your medicine una made a lasting cure

huw thankful I am to God and Dr. Pierce.M
Than the effect of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. It makes weak women strong,
sick women well. It regulates the periods,
stops disagreeable drains, heals inflammation and ulceration, and cures female weakness. It prepares the wife for motherhood,
gives her vigor and physical strength, ao
thnt the birth hour is practically painless.
It is the best of tonics because it contains
no alcohol, neither opium, cocaine, nor any
Othtr narcotic, For working women in the
home, store or schoolroom it ia an invaluable medicine. It qniots the nerves, in-
creasofl the appetite, and causes restful
and refreshing sleep, Nursing mothers
will tiud no tonic so bencflclkl to mother
and child as Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prcscrip.
That question is often on a woman's Hpp,
for of her it is expected that she shall be
ready to do something in any emergency
In the home. When that question refers
to health, sickness or disease, the answer
