prayerfully. "How loug has this been
going on?"
"A month or two. Bat I have always
been able to run awny from bim. He
has been growing more importunate of
late, so I bought a dagger that very
day and had lt not one hour too soon."
With this she drew out a gleaming little weapon that flashed lu the rays of
the candle.
This was trouble In onrucst for me,
nnd I showed lt very plainly. Then
June timidly put ber baud in mine for
the flrst time in her life nnd murmured:
"We will be married, Edwin, If you
wish, before we return from France."
She was glad to fly to me to save herself from Henry, and I was glad even
to be the lesser of two evils.
As to whether my two friends met or
not that day at Bridewell I cannot say,
but I think they did. Tbey had in some

been their only possible opportunity.
Jane and I were always taken into
their confidence on other occasions, but
as to this meeting, If any there was,
we have never been told a word. My
belief ls that the meetiug was contrived by Wolsey upon a solemn promise from Brandon aud Mary never ta
reveal lt, and lf so they have Bacredly
kept their word.
On tbe 13th of August, 1514, Mary
Tudor, with her golden hair falling

Greenwich to Louis de Vnlols, De

DOWN   INTO  FRANCE.
10 lt came to pass that Mary
I was married unto Louis and
went down into France.
[Again the editor takes tho
liberty of substituting  Hall's  quaint
account of Mary's journey to France.]
Then when all things wero redy for the
conueyaunce  of   this   noble   Ladye,   the
kyng her brother In the moneth of Augusta, and the xV daye, with the quene his
wife and his sayde sister and al the court
came to Douer and there taryed, for the
wynde waa troblous and the wet__t_r fowle,
lrt so muche that shlppe of tho kynges
culled   the   Llbeck   of   IXC.   tonne   was
dryuen a shore before Sangate and there
bru.ie & of VI  C.  men scantely  escaped
11IC and yqt the most part of them were
hurt wltb the wrecke.   When the wether
was fayre, then al her wardrobe, stable,
and riches was shipped, and such as were
appoyncted to gevo thoir attendaunce on
her aa tho duke of Norfolke, the Marques
of Dorset, the Bysshop of Durham,  the
Earle of Surrey,  the lorde Delnwar, sir
Thomas Bulleyn and many other knights,
Bquyers, gentlemen & ladles, al these went
to shlppe and the sayde ladye toko hor
leaue of the quene In the castell of Douer,
and the king brought her to the sea syde,
and kissed her, and betoke her to GOD
and  the fortune of the sea  and  to the
gouernounce of the French king her husband.   Thus at the hower of foure of the
clock in the morenynge thys fayro ladye
toke her shlppe with al  her noble cora-
palgnle:  and   when  they   had   snyled   a
quarter of the see, the wynde rose and
aeuered some of the shlppcs to Cayles,
and some ln  Flaundcrs  and  her shlppe
with great dlfflcultle to Bulleyn, and with
great   icopardy  at  the  entrylng  of   the
hauen, for the master ran the shlppe hard
on shore, but the botes were  redy and
receyued   this   noble   ladye,   and   at   the
landyng Sir Christopher Garnysha stode
In the water and toke her in his armes,
and  so   caryed   her  to   land,   where   the
Duke of Vandosme and a Cardynall with
many estates receyued her, and her ladles,
and welcommed all the noble men Into the
countrey, and so the quene and all her
trayne came to Bulleyn and ther rested,
and from thence ahe remoued by dyuerse
lodgynges tyll she came all most within
IU miles of Abuylo besydo the forrest of
Arders, and  ther kynge I_,oycs vppon a
greate courser met her, (which he so long.
deBlred) but she toke her way rlghte on,
not  stopping   to  conursc.    Then   he  returned to Abuyle by a secret waye, & she
was with greate trlumphe,  procession &
paglantes   receyued   Inlo   the   touno   of
Abuyle the VIII day of October by  the
Dolphin, which recoyued her with ureate
honor.   She wos appearellled In cloth of
slluer,  her  horse  was  trapped   In  gold-
■mythea work very rycltly.   After her followed xxxvl ladles al ther palfreys trapped  with  crymsyn  veluet,   embraudered:
aftor the folowed ono charyott of cloth of
tyssue,  the aeconde clothe  of guide und
the  third   Crymsyn  veluet   embruudcred
with the kynges armes &  hers,  full  of
roses.   After them folowed a great nomber of archers  and   then   wagons  laden
with their stuf.   Greate was tho riches in
plate, lm in.  money, and hangynges that
this   ladye   brought   Into   France.     The
Moday beyng the daye of Sayncto Donyce,
the same kynge Leyes marled  tho lady
Mary  ln   the  greate  church   of  Abuyle,
bothe appareled ln goldeamythes woorke.
After the masse was done  titer  was a
greate bankot and fcBt and the ladyes of
England highly entreteyned.
The Tewcadaye beyng tho x daye of October all the Engllslimon except a fewe
that wer officers with the sayde quene
were discharged whlche waB a great sor-
owe for theim, for some had serued her
longe ln the hope of preferment and some
that had honest romes left them to serue
her and now they wer out of serulco,
which caused the to take thought ln so
much, some dyed by way returning, and
some fell mad, but ther was no remedy.
After the English lordes had done ther
commission the French kynge wylled the
to take no lenger Payne & so gaue to
thelm good rcwardes and they toke titer
leaue of the quene and returned.
Then the Dolpltyn of Fraunce called
Frauncys duke of Voloys, or Fraunceys
d'Angoulemc, caused a solempne lustes to
be proclaymed, which shoutde be kept ta
Farya ln the moneth of Noueber next <m-
suyng, and while al these thlnges were
prepearyng, tbe Ladye Mary, the V. daye
of Noueber, then beying Sondaye waa
with greate eotempnltee crowned Queen
of Fraunce In the monasterye of Saynct
Denyce, and the Lorde Dolphyn, who waa
young, but very toward, al the season
beld the crowune ouer her hed. bocauso lt
was of great wolght, to her greuaunce.
Mme. Mnry took hor time, since s
more deliberate Journey bride never
made to waiting bridegroom. She wns
a study during tbls whole period, weeping and angry by turns. She, wbo had
never known n moment's Illness In all
her days, took to her bed upon two occasions from sheer antipathetic nervousness, and would rest hor hoad upon
■lane's breast and cry out little, half
articulate prayers to" God that she
might uot kill the man wbo was her
husbnud wflen thoy should meet.
When we met the king about a league
this side of Abbeville, and wben Mary
beheld him witb the shadow of death
upon his brow, sbe took hope, for she
knew he would be but putty in her
hands, so manifestly weak was he,
mentally and physically. As he came
up sbe whipped ber horse and rode by
him nt a gallop, Bending me back with
word that he must not be so ardent;
that he frightened her, poor, timid little thing, so nfrald of—nothing in the
worldl Tbls shocked the French courtiers, nnd one would think would have
offended Louis, but be simply grinned
from ear to ear, showing his yellow
faugs, and said whimperingly: "Oh, tho
game Is worth the trouble. Tell her
majesty I wait at Abbeville."
Tbe old king hau ridden a horso to
meet bis bride In order that he might
appear more gallant before her, but a
litter wns waiting to take blm back to
Abbeville by a shorter route, and they
were married again in person.
Again a quotation from Hall ls substituted:
Mondays the .vl daye of Noueber, ther
the sayde quene was receyued Into the
cyteo of Parys after the order thar folow-
«th. First the garde of the cytee met her
with oute Sayncte Denyce al In coates of
goldsmythes woorke with shlppea gylt,
and after them mett her al the prestes
and religious whlche were estemed to be

about (but not her ouer person) ln white
clothe of golde, the horses that drewe lt
couercd In clothe of golde, on her hed a
coronall, al of greate perles, her necke
and brest full of Iuels, before her wente a
garde of Almaynes after ther fasclon, and
after them al noblemen, ob the Dolphyn,
tho Duke of Burbon. Carynalles, and a
greate nomber of estateB. Aboute her
person rodo the kynge's garde the which
wer Scottes. On the morowe bega the
lustes, and the quene stode so that al
men might see her, and wonder at her
beautle, and the kynge was feble and lay
on a couche for weakenes.
So Mary was twice married to Louis,
and, although sbe was his queen fast
and sure enough, sbe was not his wife.
You may say what you will, bnt I
like a fighting woman, one with a touch
of the savage ln her wben tbe occasion
arises, one wbo can fight for what she
loves as well as against what she hates.
Sbe usually loves as she fights—with
all ber heart
So Mary was crowned and was now
a queen and hedged nbout by the tinseled divinity tbat hedgcth royalty.
It seemed tbat sbe was climbing
higher and higher nil the time from
Brandon, but In her heart every day
sbe was brought nearer to him.
There was one thing that troubled
her greatly, and all the time. Henry
had given his word that Brandon should
be liberated as soon ns Mary had left
the shores of England, but we had
heard nothing of this matter, although
we had received several letters from
home. A doubt of her brother, In
whom shobad little faith at best, made
ob «eho at ber heart which seemed at
ttaes likoly to break—so sbe said.
One night she dreamed that she had
witnessed Brandon's execution, her
brother standing b.v ln excellent humor at tlio prank he was playing her,
and it so worked upon her waking
hours that by evening she was ill. At
last I received a letter from Brandon,
which had been delayed along the
road, containing one for Mary. II
told of his full pardon and restoration
to favor, greater even than before, end
hor Joy was so sweet and quiet and yet
so softly delirious that I tell you plainly It brought tears to my eyes, and I
could not hold tbem back.
Tho marriage, when once determined
upon, had not cast her down nearly so
deep as I h^d expected, and soon shs
grew to be quite cheerful and happy.
Tbls filled me with regret, for I thought
of how Brandon must suffer, and felt
that her heart wus a poor, flimsy thing
to take tbls trouble so lightly.
I spoke to .lane nbout lt, but she only
laughed. "Mary ls all right," said she.
"Do not four. Matters will turn out
better than you think, porbops. You
know sbe generally miiiiugcs to have
her own wny in the end."
"If you hnve any comfort to give,
please give lt, Jane. I feel most keenly
for Brandon, heart tied to such a willful, chnngenble cronturc na Mury."
"Sir Edwin Caskoden, you need not
take tho troublo to speak to mc at all
unless you can uso language moro respectful concerning my mistress. The
queen knows what sbe Is nbout, but It
appears that you cannot seo lt I soo
It plulnly though, although no word
has over been spoken to mo on tho subject As to Brandon' being tied to her,
lt seems to mc bIic Is tied to him and
that ho holds the reins. Ho could drive
her Into tlio mouth of purgatory."
"Do you think so?"
"1 know lt"
I romnlncd In thought a moment or
two and concluded that sbe was right
In truth, tho time bad come to me
when I believed thnt Jane, with her
good sense and acute discernment,
could uot be wrong lu anything, and I
think so yet So I took comfort on
faith from her and asked, "Do you remember wbnt you sold should happen
before wo return to England?"
Jano bung her bead. "I remember."
"Well?"
She then put her hand ln mine nnd
murmured, "I am ready any time you
wish."
Grent heaven! I thought I should go
out of my senses. Sho should have
told mo gradually. I bad to do something to express my exultation, so 1
walked over to n bronze statue of
Bacchus, nbout my size—that ls, height
—put my lint, which I hud been carrying under my arm, on his hend, cut a
few caiiers In nn entirely new nnd
equnlly untie stop, nnd then drew bnck
nud knocked Hint Bacchus down.
Jano thought 1 bnd gone stark mnd,
and her eyes grew big with wonder,
but I wnlked proudly back to her nfter
my victory over Bacchus and reassured
her—with n few of Mary's message*
that I hntl still left over, lf the truth
must bo told.  Then we made arrange
ments that resulted ln our marriage
next morning.
Accordingly Queen Mary aud one or
two others weut with us dowu to a little 'church, where, as fortune would
have it, there was a little priest ready
to join together in tbe holy bonds of
wedlock little Jane and little me-ev-
erytbing so appropriate, you see. I
suppose ln tbe whole world we couldn't
have found another set of conditions so
harmonious. Mary laughed and cried
and laughed again, and clapped her
hands over and over, and suid It was
"like a play wedding," and, as she
kissed Jane, quietly slipped over her
head a beautiful diamond necklace flint
was worth full £10,000—aside, tbat Is,
from the millions of actual value because It came from Mury. "A play
wedding" it was, and a play life It has
been ever since.
We were barely settled at court ln
Paris when Mary began to put her
plans ln motion and unsettle things
generally.   I could not but recall Hen-

ybung queen sobn took lt upon herself
to make life a burden to "tbe Father of
His People," and ln thnt particular line
I suppose she bad no equal In all the
length and breadth of Christendom.
I heartily detested King Louis, largely, I think, because of prejudice absorbed from Mary, but he wus, in fnct,
a fairly good old man, and at times 1
could but pity him. He was always
soft ln heart and softer In beud, especially where women were concerned.
Tnke his crazy attempt to seize the
Countess of Croy while he was yet
Duke of Orleans, and his lufntuatlou
for the Italian woman, for whom he
built the elaborate burial vault—much
lt must have comforted her! Then his
marriage to dictatorial little Aune of
Brittany, for whom be had Induced
Pope Alexander to divorce him from
the poor little crippled owlet Joan. In

In Mary, who repaid lt by holding him

must admit tbey arc at times somewhat akin. Soon she eluded him so

Mary would often pout for days together and pretend Illness. Upon one
occasion she kept th« klug waiting at
her door all the morning, while sbe,
having slipped through the window,
was riding with some of the young people in tbe forest. When she returned
—through tbe window —she went to
the door nnd Bcolded tbe poor old king
for keeping her waiting penned np In
her room all the morning. And he apologized!
She changed the dinner hour to noon
in accordance with the English custom, and had a heavy supper at night,
when she would make the king gorge
himself with unhealthful food and coax
him "to drink as much as Brother
Henry," which invariably resulted ln
Louis de Valois finding lodgment under
the table. This amused the whole
court except a few old cronies and
physicians, who, ot course, were scandalized beyond measure. Sbe took tbe
king on long rides with her on cold
days, and would jolt him almost to
death and freeze him until the cold
tears streamed down his poor pinched
nose, making him feel like a half animated icicle and wlBh that he were
one, ln fnct
At night sbe would have ber balls
and keep him up till morning, drinking
and dancing, or trying to dance, with
ber until bis poor old heels, and his
head, too, for that matter, were like
to fall off; then she would slip away
from him and lock herself ln ber room,

Mary was killing Louis as certainly
and deliberately as if she were feeding
him slow poison. He was very weak
and decrepit at best, being compelled
frequently upon public occasions, sucb,
for example, as the coronation tournament of which I have spoken, to lie
upon a couch.
Mary's couduct was really cruel, but
then, remember the provocation, and
that she was acting in Belf defense.
All this was easier for her than you
might suppose, for the king's grasp of
power, never very strong, was beginning to relax even what little grip lt
had. All faces were turned townrd
the rising sun, young Francis, duke of
Angouleme, the king's distant cousin,
who would soon be king in Louis' place.
As this young rising sun, himself vastly smitten witb Mary, openly encouraged her ln what she did, the courtiers
of course followed suit, and the old
king found himself surrounded by a
court only tro ready to be amused by
his lively youug queen at his expense.
This condition of affairs Mary welcomed with her whole soul, aud to accent
lt and nail assurance, I fear, played
ever so lightly and coyly upon the
heartstrings of the young duke, which
responded all too loudly to her velvet
touch and almost frightened her to
death with their volume of sound later
on. This Francis d'Angouleme, the
dauphin, had fallen desperately in love
with Mnry at first sight, something
against which the fact that be was
married to Claude, daughter of Louis,
in no way militated. He was a very
distant relative of Louis, going away
back to St. Louis for his heirship to
the French crown. The king had
daughters In plenty, but, as you know,
tbe gallant Frenchmen Bay, according
to their Iaw-nallc, "The realm of
France Is so great nnd glorious a heritage that It may not bo taken by a
woman." Too great and glorious to be
taken by a woman, forsooth! France
would have been vastly better oft had
she been governed by a woman now
and then, for a country always prospers under a queen.
Francis had for many years lived at
court as the recognized heir, and, as
the custom was, called his distant cousin Louis "Uncle." "Uncle" Louis ln
turn called Francis "Ce Gros Garcon,"
and Queen Mary called him "Monsieur,
nioii beau Ills," ln a mock motherly
manner that was very laughable. A
mother of eighteen to a "good boy" of
twenty-two! DangeroUB relationship!
And dangerous indeed it would have
been for Mary had she not been as
pure and true as she was willful and
impetuous. "Mon beau flls" allowed
neither his wife nor the respect he
owed the king to stand in tho way of
his very marked attention to tbe queen.
Ills position as heir and his long residence nt court almost as eon to Louis,
gave him ample opportunities for pressing his unseemly suit He was the
first to see Mary at the meeting place
this side of Abbeville, and was the
king's representative on all occasions,
"Beau flls" wob rather a handsome
fellow, but thought himself vastly
handsomer than bo wns, and had some
talents, which ho was likewise careful
to estimate at their full vnluo, to say
tho least He wnB very well liked by
iwomcn, and In turn considered himself
irresistible. He was very Impressionable to feminine charms, waB at heart
a libertine, and, as be grew older, became a debauchee whose memory will
taint France for centuries to come.
Mary saw his weakness more clearly
tban his wickedness, being blinded to
the latter by the veil of her own Innocence. Sbe laugbed nt and with him,
and permitted herself a great* deal of
his company—bo much, ln fact, that I
grew a littlo Jealous for Brandon's
sake, and, lf the truth must be told, for
the first time began to have doubts of
her. I seriously feared that when
Louis should die Brandon might find
a much more dangerous rival ln the
new king, wbo, although married,
would probably try to keep Mary at
his court even should he be driven to
the extreme of divorcing Claude as
Claude's father had divorced Joan.
I believed, In ease Mary should voluntarily prove false and remain in
France either as tho wife or the mistress of Francis, thnt Brandon would
quietly but surely contrive some means
to take her life, snd I hoped lie would.
I spoke to my wife, Jane, about the
queen's conduct, nnd she finally admitted that she did not like it, so I, unable
to remain silent any longer, determined
to put Mnry ou her guard, and for that
purpose Bpoke very freely to her on the
subject
"Oh, you goose!" she said laughingly.
"He ls almost as great a fool as Henry." Then the tears came to her eyes,
and balf angrily, half hysterically,
shaking me by tho arm, she continued:
"Do you not know 7   Can vou not sm
tuac i wouia give tnis nana or my eyes,
almost my life, just to fall upon my
face In frout of Charles Brandon at
this moment? Do you uot kuow that
a woman with a love ln her heart such
as I have for him ls safe from every
one and everything; that it is her sheet
anchor, sure nnd fast? Have you not
wit enough to know that?"
"Yes, I have," I responded, for the
time completely silenced. With her favorite tactics she had, as usual, put me
ln the wrong, though I soon came
again to the attack.
"But he ls so base that I grieve to
see you with him."
"I suppose ht is not very good," she
responded, "but it seems to be tbe way
of these people among whom I have
fallen, and be cannot harm me."
"Ob, but he can! One does not go
near smallpox, and there ls a moral
contagion quite as dangerous, lf not so
perceptible, and equally to be avoided. It must be a wonderfully healthy
moral nature, pure and chaste to the
core, that will be entirely contagion
proof and safe from lt"
Sbe hung her hend ln thought and
then lifted her eyes appeallngly to me.
"Am I not that, Edwin? Tell me! Tell
me frankly; am I uot? It ls the one
thing of good I have always striven
for. I am so full of other faults that lf
I have not that there ls no good in
me." Her eyes and voice were full of
tears, aud I knew ln my heart that I
stood before as pure a soul as ever
came from the baud of God.
"You are, your majesty; never
doubt," I answered. "It ls pre-eminently the one thing in womanhood to
which all mankind kneels." And I fell
upon my knee and kissed her hand
With a sense of reverence, faith and
trust tbat has never left me from that
day to this. As to my estimate of how
Francis would act when Louis should
die, you will see that I was right
Not long after tbls Lady Caskoden
and I were given permission to return
to England, and Immediately prepared
for our homeward Journey.
As we left Mary placed In my bands
a letter for Brandon, whose bulk was so
reassuring thnt I knew he had never
been out of ber thoughts. I looked at
tbe letter a moment and said, in all
seriousness, "Your majesty, had I not
better provide an extra box for lt?"
Sbe gave a nervous little laugb, and
the tears filled her eyes as she whispered huskily: "I fancy there Is one who
will uot think It too large. Goodby,
goodby!" So we left Mary, fair, sweet
girl queen, all alone among those terrible strangers. Alone with one little
English maiden, seven years of age,

to talk too much. Ws do not sufficiently appreciate the value and beauty
of silence.
During the sftcr business hours, at
Iho lunch and dinner table wt talk on
and on without ceasing, as though
thero was nothing worth thinking
about We Invented tht flrst talking
machine, and no American ls considered properly tqulppcd unless he can
talk at all times and upon all subjects.
Information mnst be Imparted and
Ideas exchanged; lt ls essential to mental companionship and develops our
faculties of expression. But there ls
no necessity for the endless and eternal talk In which so many of us indulge.
There is a great force and value ln
silence. It enables us to think. It
forms and expresses character. Tbe
great men of the world were relatively
silent men; they talked only when they
bad something to sny, and the greatest
of them said but very little.
We should study, the beauty of silence and develop our thinking power
rather than our talking power.

DEADLYj\NAEMlA
Leads to   Consumption Unless
Promptly Cured.
Many a young life might be saved
from consumption if simple anaemia
were promptly treated. Anaemia is
the doctors name for weak, watery
blood. When the blood is in this
condition tbe lungs have 110 strength.
The whole system begins to break
down. Than the growing girl slips
slowly into decline, until at last the
cough starts and her doom is sealed.
Dr. Williuiin' Pink Pills can cure all
weak, anainoic people without doubt
or difficulty. They actually make
new, rich, health-giving blood—they
cure anaemia and prevent consumption. This has been proved in thousands of cases. Mrs. Edward Cochrane, Merriton, Out., says '.—-'Dr.
Williams' Pink Pitts cured my daughter Matilda, when I felt that hor case
was almost hopeless. For more than
a year she was a sufferer from anaemia. She gJudually grew weak, was
subject to violent headache, and dark
circles appeared under her eyes. She
was melancholy, had no appetite and
comolained of beiug constantly tired.
At different times she was treated by
two doctors, bit with no improvement. As her else progressed, she
was attacked hy violent palpitation of
the heart, and a suffocating shortness of breath. She had a deathly
pallor, took cold easily, and continued to decline tn weight, until I felt
that, she was in a hopeless decline.
At this time my attention was called
to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I
began giving thom to her. She had
not been taking tlie pills many weeks
when her appetite was greatly improved, and this was the first sign
that they Were helping her. She
continued the pills until she had
taken eight or nino boxes, when she
was again the picture of healthy
girlhood. Every symptom of her
trouble had disappeared, she has increased in weight, and is strong and
robust. Her recovery is looked upon
as marvellous, for the doctors thought
her case hopeless."
Dr, Williams' Pink Pills will cure
any case of bloidlessness just as surely ns they cured this case. The pale,
anaemic need only ono thing—new
blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills do
only one thing—they make new, rich
life-giving blood. That is why Dr.
Williams"Pink Pills cure all common
diseases like anaemia, headaches and
backaches, indigestion, kidney trouble
palpitation of tlie heart, neuralgia,
nervous troubles, and those special
ailments that make the lives of so
many growing girls and women miserable. Be careful to get the genuine
pills with the full name Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People on the
wrapper around each box. Tf in doubt,
send direct to The Dr. Williams Mod-
loine Co., Brockville, Ont., and the
pilla will bo Bent by mail at 60 cents
n. box, or six boxes for $2.50.

Those who have charge of the arrangements for the Christian Endeavor
convention to be held in Brandon on
October 17, 18, and 10, are looking
forward with intense interest to the
part to be taken by Mr. Von Ogden
Vogt, the General Secretary of the
World'B Union, Boston. To Mr. Vogt
was due in a large measure the success
that attended the Baltimore convention
in July of this year. With infinite
care he arranged the details of the
program and selected men from all
over the Christian world to take the
most   important   parts. Mr.   Vogt,
though only 20 years of age, is a man
of remarkably matured and sincere
ideas, and to this may be attributed
the success that has placed him in a
position of first importance in Christian
Endeavor work. When it became necessary to select a successor to Mr. John
Willis Bner as General Secretary, the
Union executive the first consideration
was to secure a young man. The
further requisites were that the man
should be a college graduate, a Presbyterian in faith, a Western man, and a
layman. To find one embodying all
these qualities was not easy. Mr. Vogt,
who was born in Chicago, had taken a
thorough course in tho public schools
there, and had graduated from Beloit
College, Wisconsin. Some of Mr. Vogt s
friends in Chicago recommended him
for the position of Secretary. He was
summoned to Boston to give an address
on "Citizenship." It was his farst
public address, and he prepared it on
the train, while on his way to the
eastern city. It was a splendid success, and he was afterwards chosen for
the position at a salary of $2,500 a
year with occasional increases.
Much of Mr. Vogt's time is taken up
in visiting conventions in all parts of
America where the work is active or
needs strengthening. His extensive
knowledge of Endeavor work, combined with his rare natural abilities
as an organizer, has provided him with
a vast fund of information, and makes
him a convention worker of unusual
value. He is a clear and fluent speaker
combining practical suggestions with
pleasing eloquence. His mind and
soul is thoroughly engrossed in his
work and his enthusiasm is well seasoned with sincerity. At the Brandon
convention he will take a prominent
part On the second and third day
of the convention he will conduct
"Schools of Methods." These are features of the program whioh have never
before been attempted at Manitoba
conventions, and they nre made pos-
siblo only by the presence of Mr.
Vogt.
After visiting Brandon and Winnipeg
Mr Vogt will proceed to Boston, where
he will report on the respective merits
of Kansas City, Los Angeles, and
Minneapolis the four cities wanting the
International Convention in 1907.
Manitoba endeavorers are all a^ious
that the Convention be held in Minneapolis and it is proposed that a petition
be drawn up and endorsed by the
Brandon Convention requesting that
the  "Flour City"   be  chosen. The
co-operation of tho Saskatchewan and
Alberta Conventions aro earnestly re-
oucsted in this matter. Any communications on the subject should be
addressed to Mr. J. L. Bond, Winnipeg
box 266.
Tho posters announcing the convention dates have been sent out to
societies and to the railway agents-
The society secretaries should see tnat

Rilos
and Erysipelas
Two Severe Cases Which Illustrate the Extraordinary Soothing, Healing Virtues of
DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT.
Scores of people do not think of
trying Dr. Chase's Ointment for
bleeding piles because they bave used
so many other treatments in vain
and do not believe their ailment curable. It is by curing when others
fail that Dr. Chase's Ointment has
won such a record for itself. It will
not fail to promptly relieve and completely cure any form of piles, no
matter how severe or of how long
standing.
Mr. James Uriah Pye, Marie Joseph
Guyaborough Co., N.S', writes : I was
bad with bleeding piles for about four
years and could get no help. Dr.
Chase's Ointment cured me in a very
short time and I cannot praise it too
highly for this cure. Mrs. Thomas
Smith was troubled with erysipelas
in the feet and legs and was all swollen up. I gave her some of the ointment, which took out the swelling
and healed all the tores. She had
ried many   treatments   before,   but
none seemed to do her any good. I
am telling my friends about the wonderful cures which Dr. Chase's Ointment mude for Mrs. Smith and myself, and would say that it is only a
pleasure for me to recommend eo excellent a preparation."
Wherever there is irritation, inflammation, ulceration or itching of
the skin Dr. Chase's Ointment will
bring quick relief and will ultimately
heal and cure. On this account it is
useful in scores of ways in every
house for the cure of eczema, salt
rhSVm, tetter, scald head, chafing,
itching peculiar to women, pin worms,
piles, and all sorts of skin diseases
and eruptions.

ROPY AND BITTER MILK.
Bath   These   Conditions   Are   I sunt I_■
Canned br Bacteria.
A ropy milk Is not always caused by
bacteria, but lt may come from the
animal suffering from certain diseases,
particularly garget. In the majority
of cases the trouble is due to the development of bacteria subsequent to
the milking, says Hoard's Dairyman.
Tht cause of ropy'milk can be traced
to several species of bacteria, but the
one that ls the most troublesome ln
the United States can be traced to an
organism that Is an Inhabitant of water. It has been found living and
growing ba the water used for washing the milk vessels or for submerging them to cool the milk. Through
auch a source of contamination the
bacillus gots Into tbe milk. The
trouble can usually be removed by
thoroughly scalding the milk utensils
and water tanks in which the water
stands for tht cooling of milk.
Bitter milk Is due to several causes.
Cows produce bitter milk after eating
certain foods, like ragweed aud lupine.
Perhaps these weeds have bacteria on
their leaves and stems, which get on
the cows' udders and fall Into the
milk at the time of milking, and tbo
eating of the weeds does not causa the
bitter taste ln milk. Some cows produce bitter milk when well along lu
tht period of lactation, and certain udder diseases render tbe milk bitter. As
a rule, bitter milk ls caused by the
growth of bacteria which have resisted the heat ot sterilization. It ls no
easy matter to destroy the bacteria
that cause bitter flavored milk. Just
before milking the cows' udders should
be washed ln a 2 per cent solution of
sodk and the milk duct with a 3 per
cent solution of boraclc acid.
Sometimes milk develops a bitter
tattt by keeping lt too long at a very
low temperature. In such cases the
milk should not be cooled quite so low
ln temperature and consumed more
quickly. While heat falls to destroy
the spores of these bacteria, yet all the
milking vessels Bhould be thoroughly
scalded whenever a dairy ls Infected
with these germs.
Improving tht Dairy Herd.
A dairyman may start with nothing
bnt the most ordinary cows, and by
simply breeding to dairy sires of excellent quality and pure breeding he
will ln a few years bave a fine working herd, says Holstain-Frleslan Register. There ls ne reason why a good
herd of grades cannot be made to yield
a profit, but too many of us do net appreciate the value of a pure bred aire.
Catarrh of tha Udder.
Catarrh of the udder may be caused
by the cow lying on damp ground
night after nlgbt or by a germ which
ls Introduced into the udder. Low
ground pastnrt for dairy cews should
have some high ground upon which
they may lie after eating.
AROUND THE DAIRY
\*s
It should be considered that the poor,
est cows eat practically as much as
the best This will hold true generally.
A poor cow will eat as much as a good
cow. Also, while a good cow will return ten to twenty times as much profit
as the poor cow, she can be bought for
but very little more. Her price ls out
of all proportion to her profitableness.
In short, the good cow Is a highly
profitable Investment The poorest
cows are kept at a positive loss.
Raal Valno af a Good Cow.
The rial value of a fine milk cow
Itet In her pedigree, her prepotent power of heredity, that power that a long
lint of good ancestors gives her to pass
her good qualities along to her offspring, so that a great deal depends
upon the man as to whether he Is wiso
ln the selection of the kind of animal
for the work, and with the care aud
feed there ls nothing to hinder tlie
dairyman from being mastor of the
situation and having conditions favorable te his ambitions.
At Calvin* Time.
Never allow a cow to calve In the
pasture. The young thing In tucb
cases partakes of the wild, and lt ls
never overcome, tays Farm Journal.
If It Is a heifer, It will never mako a
perfectly docile cow. If a bull, it will
be wild and vicious.
Tralnlne the Baiter.
Take your time about teaching the
heifer to milk. Lots of men are In too
big a hurry, and tbey expect too much
of the young cows snywsy. It has
taken most of ut a good many years
to learn wbat we know, aud thero
are some things that we are not altogether posted on even now.
While  Specks  In  Batter.
Carelessness in warming cream ls responsible for tbo white specks which
sre sometimes found In tbe butter,
writes a correspondent of National
Stockman. If tho cream becomes too
warm, lt separates or "wheyi off" exactly the same ss sour milk does In
the process of making cottage cheese.
The tour milk becomes curd; then,
when the butter comet, this curd, iu
fine particles, ls found Incorporated

When this ls allowed to occur, the only
thing to do ls to strsln the cream before churning.

Tlie season is here for intending c»a
didates for Municipal honors to start
the question of a Market for Vancouver
Stable Government at Last.
There can be no manner of doubt
that the present government of British Columbia is the most satisfactory and stable enjoyed here for
rnany years. When Premier McBride
formed his government two or three
years ago and was finally entlorsctl
}>y a siim margin, dire disaster was
predicted for him, especially by his
friends the enemy. And those so-
called friends lost no opportunity to
make it as hard for the premier as
possible, to carry on the business of
the province. From alpha to omega
they went the entire category ol obstacles, but were unsuccessful in their
desires.
The business of the province was
place.I on a stable basis as fast as it
could be done-, and there was re
trenchment wherever it could be
made without impairing the usefulness of the service. The oltl order
of things was done away with, where
till kinds of reckless expenditures
were made without giving thought
of the morrow. Mr. McBride might
well have been in Missouri at some
time, for he had to be "shown." And
this lack of ability to show him the
benefit to be obtained (rom certain
grants desired by some parties, has
saved the province many thousands,
not to say millions of dollars. The
government is conducted on strictly
business lines, for the first time, and
the expenditures are kept within the
income, also for the first time in its
history.
■Today Mr. McBride has the co
dence of the majority of the pco|
and many Liberals are fair cnoti
to admit this, much as they would
like to prove the contrary. The premier and his colleagues are to be
congratulated by all, antl the better
condition of the province generally
Is one of the first results of the
policy inaugurated.—Phoenix Pioneer.

' The Cup That Cheers.
To make tea oi ordinary strength,
Jollow the old rule of "a teaspoonful
fpr each person and one for the pot."
An ounce or half a cupful of tea contains seven teaspoonfuls, and will
.piake six pints of tea, or two cupfuls
icach for six persons. After a cup of
tea (or each person has been poured
•out, another pint of actually boiling
water may be added to that in the
Jeapot, and before the second cup is
needed, tiie tea will be of good
jncdjum strength.
For making the tea, an earthenware or china teapot is preferable to
one of metal. Rinse the teapot with
boiling water; then put the tea into
jt, and pour in the boiling water
cover tlie teapot, anil let the tea
jtand to draw out its flavor as long as
is desirable before using it, but do not
set the teapot where the tea will boil;
it will- be hot enough to drink for
fen or fifteen minutes. Some people
only pour part of the boiling water
on the tea at first, and add the rest
■just before using it. Sugar and milk
are, of course, used at the discretion
of tea drinkers.

with sugar, but no milk, makes a
very  pleasant  drink—this  is  Russian

Women's new negligees show some

Some very beautiful  evening coats
are developed in pale lavender broadcloth with trimmings of gold braid.
*    *    +
In velvet costumes this winter the
Princess model is prominent. This
is also frequently seen in the demi-
j/froWd suits constructed of broad-
^oth^WTVii^nrlcd for afternoon
wear. The Vemcess model often has
the skirt extending above the waistline for several inches in the form
of a corselet into which fall the
folds of the soft silk or lace bodice
of I'he same color as the skirt. Over
this bodice is worn the short fitted
bolero or Eton jacket, which reaches
just below the top of the corselet.
Such a costume is susceptible of
a great deal of trimming, the main
idea of whicll is that it should he of
the same shade as t'hc material, ex-
cepting for the silk bodice, which is
generally trimmed with appliques of
lace.
+    *    *
For dressy wear the most popular hats of the season arc not very
large. Although medium in size,
however, ihey look large owing to
the arrangement of the trimming.
One style a little larger than tihe ordinary that seems to be a particular
favorite is cavalier in general contour, wilh crown of the derby description. Trimmed, as a rule, with
ostrich it present., a very pleasing
effect.
The derby crown is lie novel feature tliis season. It is in evidence
in both large and small hats. Sometimes, particularly in large hats with
flat brims, it is nothing more than
a half hall scarcely two indies high.
Again, however, and this more es-]
penally in the small effects—the der-1
by crown will be found over four
inches   in   height—a   real   derby     in
fact.

Fashion indications point to a return of ihc vogue of bands of fur
for/ trimming purposes. 'Last winter the leading Parisian dressmakers used bands of Uie most costly
furs lo border the skirts of the handsomest velvet an d cloth carriage costumes. With costumes so trimmed
"the fashionable women wore pelcr-
hics, victorines and boas of the same
fur.
Another fashion which may be revived this coming winter is that of
the deep fur cuff, reaching from
wrist to forearm. Of course, it will
be the shorter-haired furs which will
be used  for such  purposes.

Too much emphasis cannot he laid
upon the fulness of the new skirts.
The average woman must be educated up to the fact that more material
is retpiired for many of the new costumes than was the case even in the
spring, when the fulness of the skirt
was thought to have reached the
limit.
The best skirt patterns for velvet
and cloth for handsome toilettes arc
those which have the skirts cut in the
one or two-piece circular shape.
in the walking-length skirts the
widegorcd models arc still favored.
These generally show the jcams concealed hy some sort of pleat. The
circular skirt has, however, been cleverly adapted to the requirements of

which arc so fashionable for evening
wear, the fulness of the skirt often

the nature of the fabric the outlines

Faith and Works. -
Wo prato of love and worij in hate;
We talk of faith and trust to fato.
O might we do the things we preach I
O might wo live the life we teach I
Tho Christ is born.   Rejoice 1  Rejoice 1
Across the ago* rings his voice,
But sounds iu vain for him who reads
If lu iiii leads not to loving deeds.
When 'Plato lit tlie torch of yoro
The beioou blazed from shore to shore,
Aud we upon Tinio's farthest height
Still see it ita. h across the night.
Uplift tho brand, nor fear the burn;
Dure, iu a world of doubt, lo lenrn
That God attains himself through you;
Christ livoB today in theui that do.
—Charles Keeler
CHRISTMAS GIVING.
Already we're thinking of Christmas,
And wondering what we shall give;
So we're racking and    ruining   our
brains
Till it's almost a blow to live.
Would a silk collar do for Alice?
Or would a glove-box be the best?.
And what is there that Jim has not
now?
It's the same for all of the rest.
The, true joy of giving is absent—
"lis often a habit at best.
Wc worry and bother and trouble
Till it robs life of all its zest.
We're  too  busy  making  up presents
l"o think of the reason at all,
Too busy supplying Tom's  tool-box
Or dressing  Marjorie's doll.
»
We  forget  to  give  thanks  for  lhat
gift,
Of al! the most precious and dear—
The gift of our Lord from above,
Whose birthday we should keep each
year. E.W.

j ,When you
enter the
Ballroom
or drawing-room or   banquet-hall— it's  a   mighty
pleasurable fe.eliug to know that there isn't a better
dressed man in the company.
That's the way a Fit-Reform Dress Suit feels.   Yon
know it—and everybody else knows it.
Tho man who relies on Fit Roi'orni for his "eveniug
gnrmonts, wears the best made—best fitting—best
looking—Dress Suits iu Canada.
Wo mean that.    And we mean moro.
We mean th ..t Pi ..-Reform Dress Suits fit all over—
collars, lapels, shoulders, waist,  hips,  thigh, knee,
anklo.   They always fit becnuse their shapeliness is
permanent. Every coat, vest, trousers—is handmade
aud haudshaped.
The best tailors in Cauada—each a specialist on one
particular part of the work—make them.
And there's a style—a dignity—an air of graco nud
elogauoe, to those Fit-Reform creations that can't
bo measured in dollars and cents, anil cttu'l  bo bot-
terod by auy customs tailor in the Dominion.
Mado'prinoipally in French Worsteds—cloths woven
especially   for   Fit-Reform —$25,  $30, $35.
