Or, The Love Story of Charles Brandon and Mary Tudor, the King's Sister, and
Happening In the Reign of His August Majesty King Henry the Eighth
Rewritten find Rendered Into Modern English From Sir Edwin
Ci-skoden'a Memoir
CopwrlflM. 1508 ond loot.nvttu Bawen-MerriU Company
At last aimectlng came aoout in tnls
■way: Next te tbe king's bedchamber
dvus a IQxurloUsly furnished little
apartment with a well selected library.
Here Brandon and I often went afternoons to read, as wo wero sure to be
Late one dny Brandon had gone over
to this quiet rotrent'ftnd, having selected a volume, took his placo In a secluded little alcove hnlf hidden ln nrrns
draperies. There was a cushioned sent
along the wall and a small diamond
shaped window to furnish light.
He had not been there long when ln
came Mary. I cannot Boy whether she
knew Brandon was there or not, but
ehe was there and he was there, which
Is tbe only thing to the point, and, finding hlin, sbe stepped into the alcove bofore he was aware of her presence.
_—...,_., nu. uu urn leot ln an instant and with a low bow was backing himself out most deferentially to
leaye her ln sole possession, lf she
wished to rest .
"Muster Brandon, you need not go.
I will not hurt you. Besides, If this
place ls not largo enough for us both,
I will go. I would not disturb you."
She spoke with a tremulous voice and
a -julck, uneasy glance, and started to
movo backward out of tbe alcovo.
"Lady Mary, how can you speak sof
YOB know—you must know—oh, 1 beg
y<_U"— But she Interrupted him by
taking his arm and drawing him to a
seat beside ber on the cushion. She
could hare drawn down the Colossus
of Ithodes with the look she gave Brandon, so full was lt of command, entreaty and promise.
"That's lt I don't know, but 1 want
to know, and I want you to sit here beside me and tell me. I am going to be
reconciled with you despite the way
yon treated met when last wo met. I
am going to be friends wltb you whether yoo wlll_or not. .Now what do yofl
say to thatj' sir?" 'She spoke with a
nattering little laugh of uneasy non-
assurance, which showed that ber
henrt was not nearly so confident nor
so bold as ber words would make believe. Poor Brandon, usually so ready,
bad nothing "to say to that," bnt sat
In.helpless silence.
Was this tbe sum total of all bis
wlso determinations made at the cost
of so much pain and effort ? Was this
thp answer to all his prayer, "Lead
me not Into temptation?" He had done
bin part, for he had dono all be could.
Heaven had not helped him, since here
was temptation thrust upon him wben
s»si i-peuteu ana when the way was
io* narrow be could not escape, but
-oust meet lt faco to face.
Mary soon recovered her self posses-
lion—women are better skilled fn this
irt than meu—and continued:
"I am iidt intending tosay one word
•bout your'trentment of mc thnt day
svjer ln t|0 forest although lt was very
bad and you have acted abominably
etjer since. Now ls not that kind lb
me." And she softly laughed as sbe
pejiped up at the poor fellow from beneath those sweeping lushes, with the
premeditated purpose of tantalizing
him, I suppose. Sbe was beginning to
knoWhet' powor over him, and it was
nevor greater than at this moment
Her Jtifiiuh" had its sweetest Quality,
for thaijJHijcess was sunk- and tlie
won___t w»« dominant, 'with ilushed
face nud Hushing eyes tbnt caught a
double luster from the: glowing love
that made her heart beat so fast
With tho mood that was upon her I
wonder Brandon maintained his self
restraint even for a moment Ho felt
tlmt his only hopo Iny tn silence, bo he
snt beside her aud said nothing. Ho
told mo long afterward that while sitting thoro ln tbe Intervals between her
.pooch, the oddest, wildest thoughts ran
through bis bruin. He wondered bow
be could escape. He thought of tbe
window and that possibly ho might
breakaway through It, and fhcu he
thought of feigning Illness, ond a hundred other absurd schemes, but they
all camo to nothlug, and be sat there
to lot events take their own course, as
they seemed determined to do ln spite
of him.
After n short silence Mary continued
half bantcrlngly: "Answer mo, slrl I
will have no more of this. You shall
trout mo at least with tbe courtesy you
would show n bourgeolse girl."
"Oh, that you were only a burgher's
"Yes, I know all that; but I am not
It can't bo helped, and you shall answer mc." v
"There is no answer, dear lady. I
beg you—oh, do you not see"—
"Yes, yes; but answer my question.
Am I not kind, more than you deserve?1
"Indeed, yes; a thousand times. You
havo always been so kind, so gracious
and so condescending to mo that I can
only thank you, thhnk you, thank you,"
answered Brandon nlmost shyly, not
tiring to lift bis eyes to hers.
Mary saw the manner quickly enough
•what woman ever missed lt, much
I»ss bo keen-eyed a girl as sbe—and lt
gave her confidence and brought back
tho easy banter of ber old time manner.
"Haw modest we bave become!
Where Is tbe boldness of which we
need to hnve so much? Kind? Have
I always been so? How about the first
time I mot you? Was I kind then?
And as to condescension, don't—don't
use that word between us."
"lto," returned Brandon, who In his
turn wns recovering himself; "no, I
can't »ay that you wore very kind at
first How you did fly out at mo and
Burpr.se me! It wus so unexpected lt
almost tooli mc off my feet" And they
both laughed lu remembering the scene
of trOWf first meeting. "No, I enn't say
your kindness showod Itself vory
strongly ln thnt first Interview, but
It was there nevertheless, and when
Lady Jane led me bnck your real nature asserted Itself, as lt always does,
and you were kind to mc—kind a* only
tou can bo "
That was getting very near to the
sentimental — dangerously nenr, ho
thought, and he add to himself, "If
this does not end quickly, I shall havo
to escape."
"You nre easily satisfied If you call
that good," laughingly returned Mury.
"I can be ever bo much bettor than
that if I try."
"Lot me see you try." said Brandon.
"Why, I'm trying now," answered
Mary, with a distracting little pout
"Don't you know genuine out and Qut
goodness when you see tt? I'm do'ug
my very best now.   Can't you toll?"
"Yes, I think I rocognlze It but—but
—bo bad again."
"No, I wan'tl 1 will not be bad even

to bo bud, and I will not—not even to
bo good. This." placing her hand over
her neart, "Is Just full of 'good' today."
And her lips parted as she laughed at
her own pleasantry.
"I am afrnld you bnd better be bad.
I give you fair warning," said Brandon
huskily. He felt her eyes upon blm all
the time, nnd bis strength nnd good
resolves wero oozing out llko wlno from
an 111 coopered cask. After a short silence Mary continued, regardless of tbe
"But the position Is reversed with us.
At lirst I was unkind to you, and you
were kind to me, but now I am kind to
you, and you nro unkind to me."
"I can como back at you with your
own words," responded Brandon. "You
don't know when I am kind to you. I
should be hinder, to myself at least
were I to leave you and tako mysolf to
Hie other side of the world."
"Oh, thnt Is one thing I wonted to
ask you about Jane tells me you are
going to New Spain."
bho wns anxious to know, but asked
tho question partly to turn the conversation, whleh was fast becoming perilous. As a girl Bhe loved Brandon and
knew lt Ouly too well, but she knew
also that she was a princess, standing
next to tbe throne of tbe greatest kingdom ou earth—ln fact at that time the
heir apparent, Henry having no children, tor the people would not have the
Scotch king's Imp, and the possibility
of such a thing as a union with Brandon had never entered her head, however passionate her feelings toward
blm. It was not to be thought of between people so fur apart as they.
Brandon answered her question: "I
do not know nbout going. I think I
shnll. 1 have volunteered with a ship
thut satis In two or three weeks from
Bristol, and I suppose I shall go."
vii, noi Ho you really mean it?" II
gave ,lwr n pang lo hoar that he was
actually going, and ber love pulsed
higher, but sho iiIbo felt a sense of relief, somewhat as a conscientious
hoUBcbroaker migljt foci upon finding
tho door securely loekod agiiluat him.
It would ■ tako away a temptation
which she could not resist nnd yet
dured not yield to much longer.
"I think thoro Is uo doubt that I
mean it," replied Brandon. "I Bhould
like to remain I.V Bijgland until I can
save money enough out of the king's
allowance to pay tho debt agnlnst my
father's estate, so that I may bo abl«
to go away and feel that my brother
and Bisters arc secure in their homo—
my brother ls not strong—but I know ■
lt ls better for mc to go now, and I
hope to find the money out there. I
could huve paid lt with what I lost to
Judson bofore I dlscov-,'1 blm cheating." This was the Hi % time he had
ever alluded to the duel, and the
thought of it in Mary's mind, ndded a
faint touch of four to her feeling to
ward him.
She looked up with a light ln her eye!
and asked: "What ls tho debt?   How
"Heaven help mel" lie cried,
much? Let me give you tho money. 1
have so much moro than I need. Let
mo pay it. rieasa tell me how much
tt Is, and I will band it to foil. Yen
can como to my rooms and get it, or I
will send lt to you. Now tell me that
1 may. Quickly!" And she was allvt
with enthusiastic Interest
"There, now, you are kind again, as
kind as even you cun be. Bo sure, I
thank you, though I say it ouly onco,"
and ho looked Into her eyes with a
gazo sbe could not stand even for an
Instant. This was growing dangerous
again; so, catching himself, ho turned
the conversation back Into the bantering vein.
"Ah, you want to puy tho debt that
I may hava no excuse to remain? Is
that lt? Perhaps you are not so kind
after all."
"No, no; you know better. But let
me pay the debt How much ts lt, and
to whom ls lt owing? Tell me at once,
1 command you."
"No, no, Lady Mury; I cannot"
'Tloase do. I beg, If I cannot command. Now I know you will. YoU
would not make me beg twlco for anything?" She drow closer to blm as sbe
spoke and put her baud cosxlngly upon
bis arm. With an Irresistible impulse
be took the hand ln his end lifted lt to
his Uns in a iimrerlue caress tbat could
boi be mistaken. It was "all so quick
aud so full of fire and meaning that
Mary took fright, and tbe princess for
the moment came uppermost.
"Master Brandon!" she exclaimed
sharply and drew away her hand. Brandon dropped the hand and moved over
on tbe seat. He did not speak, but
turned his face from her and looked
out of the window toward the river.
Thus they sat ln silence, Brandon's
hand resting listlessly upon tho cushion between them. Mary saw the eloquent movement away from her and
his speaking attitudo with nvcrted face;
thon the princess went iuto eclipse, and
the imperial woman wns ascendaut
once more, flbe lookod at him for u
brief space with softening oyes and,
lifting her hand, put it back ln his, saying:
"There it Is agaln-.f you want lt"
Want it? Ah, this was too much!
Tho hand would uot satisfy now. It
must be all, all! And he caught her to
his arms with a violence that frightened her.
"I'leaso don't; pleasel Not this time!
Ah, havo mercy, Churl— Well! There!
There! Mary mother, forgive mel"
Then hor woman spirit fell beforo tho
whirlwind of his passion, nnd sho was
on his breast, with hor white arms
around bis neck, paying tho same tribute to the little blind god that ho would
have exacted from tho lowliest maiden
of the land.
Brandon held tho girl for a moment
oi two, tnen fell upon his knees aud
burled his face ln her lap.
"Hoavon help me!" he cried.
Bbe pushed the hair back from his
forehead with ber band and as she
fondlod the curls leaned over him and
softly whispered:
"Heaven help us both, for I love
He sprang to his feet. "Don't! Don't,
I pray yon," he said wildly, and almost
ran from her.
Mary followed him nearly to the door
of the room, but when ho turned he
saw that she bad stopped and was
standing with her hands over her face,
as lf ln tears.
He went back to ber and said, "I
tried to avoid this, and lf you bad
helped me lt would never"— But he
remembered how he had always despised Adam for throwing tho blame
upon Eve, no matter how much she
may have deserved It and continued:
"No, I do not mean that. It Is all
my fault I should havo gone away
long ago. I could not help lt. I tried,
oh, I tried!"
Mnry's eyes were bent upon the
floor, and tears wero falling over her
Unshed cheeks unheeded and unchecked.
"There la no fault in any one. Neither could I help It," she murmured.
"No, no; lt ls not that there Is any
fault ln fhe ordinary sense. It ls like
snicide or any other great eelf inflicted
Injury with me. I am different from
other men.   I shall never recover."
"I know ouly too well that you are
different from other men, nnd—and I,
too, am different from other women.
Am I not?"
"Ah, different! There is no other
woman In all this wide, long world."
And tbey were ln each other's arms
again. She turued her shoulder to
him and rested with the support of his
arms about her. Her eyes were cast
down iu silence, and she was evidently thinking as she toyed with the lace
of bis doublet. Brandon knew her
varying expressions so well that he
saw there was something wanting, so
he asked:
"Is there something you .wish to
"Not I," Bhe responded with emphasis on the pronoun.
"Then lt ls something you wish ma
to say?"
Sho nodded her head slowly, "Yes."
"What ls lt?   Tell me, and I will say
She shook her head slowly, "No."
"What ls lt?   I cannot guess."
"Did you not like to hear me say that
—that I—loved you?"
"Ah, yes! You know lt But—oh!—
do you wish to bear me say it?"  •
Tho head nodded rapidly two et
threo times, "Yes." And the black
curving lashes wore lifted for a fleeting, luminous Instant
"It  ls surely  not  necessary.    Yon
have known lt so long already, but I
am only too glad to say lt I love you."
She nestled closer to him and hid hei
face oh his breast
"Now that I have said It what lf my
reward?" he asked, and the fair face
came up, red and rosy, wltb "rewards,"
any one of which wa* worth a king's
"But this ls worse than Insanity,"
cried Brandon as he almost pushed her
from him. "We can neyer belong to
each other.   Noverl"
"No," said Mary, with a despairing
shake of the head, as th* tear* began
to flow again. "No, never!" And falling upon hi* knees he caught both hei
hands ip bla, sprang to hi* feat and
ran from the room.
Her word* showed him tbo chasm
anow. Sbe saw tho distance between
them even better than he. Evidently
lt seemed farther looking down than
looking up. There wa* nothing left
now but flight

up (his store of agony to last me all
my days! Why did I ever come to this
court? Ood pity me—pity mel" And
ho fell upon his knees at the bed, burying bis face ln hia arms, bis mighty
man's frame shaking as with a palsy.
That lame nlgbt Brandon told me
how he bad committed suicide, as he
put it and ot hi* intention to go to
Bristol and there await the sailing of
tho sl-lv and perhaps find a partial resurrection In New Spain.
Unfortunately, ho could not start for
Bristol at once, as he had given some
challenges for a tournament at Richmond and could furnish no good excuse
to withdraw them, but he would not
leave his room or again see "that girl
Who was driving him mad."
It was better, he thought, and wisely, too, that there bo no leave taking,
but that bo should go without meeting
"If I see her again," he said, "I shall

But Providence or fate 'or some ono
ordered lt differently, and there wa*
plenty of troublo ahead.
BOUT a week after Brandon'*
memorable interview with
Mary an incident occurred
which    changed   everything
and came very near terminating his career In the flower of youth. It nlso
brought about a situation of affairs
that showed tbe difference in tbe qualify of these two persons thrown so
marvelously together from their far
distant stations at each end of tbe ladder of fortune In a way that reflected
very little credit upon the one from
tho upper end. But before I tell you
of tbat 1 will relate briefly one or two
other matters that had a bearing upon
what was dono and tho motives prompting it
To begin with, Brandon had kept
himself entirely away from the princess ever since tho afternoon at tbo
king's antechamber. The flrst dny or
bo sho sighed, but thought little of his
absence; then sho wept and, as usual,
begun to grow piqued nud Irritable.
What was left of hor Judgment told
hor It was better for them to remain
apart, but her longing to see Brandon
grew stronger as the prospect of lt
grew less, and she beenmo angry thnt
It could not be gratified. Jane was
rlgbt; an unsatisfied desire with, Mary
wub torture. Even her sense of tbo
great distance between them hnd begun to fade, and when she bo wished
for him nnd he did not come their positions seemed to be reversed. At the
end of the thlrt' day sho sent for him
to come to hei rooms, but he by a
mighty effort sent back a brief note
saying thnt ho could not and ought not
to go. This, of course, threw Mary Into
a great pnsslo.i, for sbe Judged him by
herself, a very common but dangerous
method of Judgment, nnd thought that
If he felt (t all as she did he would
throw prudence to the winds and come
to her, as she knew she would go to
him If she could. It did not occur to
her thot Brandon knew himself well
enougfc to be sure he would never go
to Now Spain lf ho allowed another
grain of temptation to fail Into the 1ml-
aiMO against him, but would remain in
London to love hopelessly, to try to
win a hopeless cause and end it all by
placing his head upon the block.
It required nil bla strength even now
to hold fast his determination to go to
New Spain. He had reached his limit Ho bad a fund of tbat most useful of all wisdom, knowledge of self,
and knew his limitations, a little matter concerning which nine men out of
ten go all their lives in blissless ignorance.
Mary, wbo was no more given to self
analysis than her pet linnet did not
appreciate Brandon's potent reasons
and was in a flaming passion when she
received his answer. Bngo and humiliation completely smothered for the
time her affection, and she said to herself over and over again: "I hato tbe
lowborn wretch". Oh, to think what 1
have permitted!" It seemed only too
clear that she had been too quick to
give, no very comforting thought to a
proud girl eveu though a mistaken ono.
As the days went by and Brandon
did not come her nnger cooled as usual,
aud again her heart began to ache, but
her sense of Injury grow stronger day
by day and Bhe thought sho was beyond n doubt tbo most 111 used of women.
The negotiations for Mary's marriage
with old Louis XII. of France were beginning to be on open secret about the
court. The Due de Longuevlllo, who
hud been held by Henry for some time
as a sort of hostage from the French
king, had opened negotiations by Inflaming the flickering passions of old
Louis with descriptions of Mary's beauty. As there was a prospect of a now
emperor soon and us thalmperlal bee
had of late been making a most vehement buzzing ln Henry's bonnet be
encouraged Do Longuevllle nnd thought
lt would be a good time to purchase
the help of France nt the cost of his
beautiful sister and a handsome dower.
Mary of course had not boen consulted,
and although Bhe bnd Conxed ber
brother out of other marriage projects
Henry had gonC'nbout tills os If he
were ln earnest, and lt was thought
throughout the court that Mary's conx-
Ings would be all ln vain—a fear which
sho herself hnd begun to share, notwithstanding her usual self confidence.
Sbe hnted the thought of the marriage and dreaded It as she would death
Itself, though she snld nothing to any
one but Jane und wub holding her
forces ln reserve for a grand attack.
She was preparing the way by being
very sweet and kind to Henry.
Now, oil of this, coming upon the
heels of her trouble, with Brandon,
made her most wretched Indeed. For
the flrst timo in her life she began to
feel suffering—thnt great brondenbr, In
fact maker, of human rhnrn_.t_,«.

tor and  Proprietor of the  Enterprise," Mel ita, Man.
The profession of Journalism In
the West Includes among its most
honored members some men of mature age, whose ripened experlencal
has sobering and modifying effect on
the sometimes too exuberant enthusiasm of their younger fellowworkmen.
Now that "old man Laurie" of Battle-
ford has crossed the bourne—he who
with tho courage of the pioneer loaded his Washington hand preBS on a
Red HI ver cart,, and trekked hundreds
of miles acrOSs the farflung fenceless
prairie to the then Territorial capital, staying on with firm faith ln his
location after all others had quit and
, dying at last' with the sound of the
long-looked-for locomotive almost in
his ears, and his dreams of Battle-
l'ord's future within measurable distance of realization at last. Now that
the veteran editor of the Saskatchewan Herald is no more, Mr. Cannon,
of the Minuedosa Tribune, ls perhaps
the Nestor of Western Canadian Journalism, hut Mr. Jas. B. Graham, of
Melita, will In point of age. If not of
Western experience, run him a close
second.   '   "'' j
Though Me, Graham ls ln his sixty-
fifth year, he; would have to produce
a certificate of the fact ln order to be
believed, for many men a score of
yeftrs his Junior look older. He ls an
ardent lover of the great out-of-doors,
and to this fact, us well as to a temperate, industrious, cheerful life and
a naturally good constitution, his finely preserved physique may be ascribed. In tho winter the skating rink
lias no more enthusiastic devote, than
hfi, and in summer he travels for
hours a. day on his bicycle. He retains tbat youthlul freshness of mind
that Is the surest antidote for old age.
He lives in the present rather than in
the past, enjoys the society of the
young, mid while Conservative ln poll-
tics Is progressive ln disposition.
Though his hair is white his step is
springy, and many a young Canadian
girl might envy Mr. Graham his complexion- He is one of those men that
never grow really old, but when his
eye is dim and'his step feeble, will be
fresh of heart and mind as men
young enough to be nls sons.
Mr. Graham ls of Irish birth, a native of Ulster, having been oorn near
Belfast in 1840. He was but seven
years of age-when he .came with his
parents to-IJn'tario.';' At; the age of
seventeen Ire" went' Into the printing
business, with which "he has been ever
since Identified. ..He.was apprenticed
to the office pf the Streetville Review,
then owned by.Solomon Barnhart and
edited by Rev.. R. 3. McGeorge. His
first Job, as he Is fond of telling his
friends when ln reminiscent view,
was to manipulate the roller of the
Washington press in printing an edition of the'poems and lyrics of the
lesser Canadian poets, Alexander Mc-
Lachlln, of Caledon. Mr. Graham remained with the Review until It ceased publication. .His vfhole printing experience while connected with the paper was In newspaper and book work,
for ln the BO'S job work, as at present
understood—U}e printing of office stationery,. ylsitlng cards, pamphlets and
catalogues—was unknown outside the
bigger citleii.
After leading Streetville Mr. Graham, In searcfi of wider knowledge'of
the craft, went to .Toronto, and called
on Wllllam-Lyon Mackenzie In search
of a position on his paper. There being none, and disliking tbe hurly-burly
of the city;.-be .went-to Milton, secur-
ing a position ou the New Era of that
town. Later he worked on papers at
Fergus, Mount' ' Forest, and Owen
Sound. In 1870 Mr. Graham started
the Uxbridge Journal, staying ln Ux-
brldge bohio years, and finally selling
out because of a severe attack of the
Western farming fever, to which thousands of Ontnrlans succumbed ln
Mr. Graham first took up n homestead near Rapid City, but tho absence of educational facilities for his
children caused him to move with his
family to Qu'Appelle,. where he had
been offered a position ns foreman of
the Progress office. Hero ho remained
tor a time, when the offer of a"Blinl-
Inr position In Brandon determined
him to move to the Wheat City, because of the better educational advantages there obtainable. Por six or
seven years Mr. Graham was a citizen
of Brandon, leaving when he purchased the Enterprise at Melita, which
under his management, was soon fitted
out with an entire now dress, and the
mechanical equipment of which was
three years ago Improved by the Installation of a large Cottrell-Babcock
press and a power plant.
Last January Mr. Graham purchased
the Caruduff Gazette, for which he
has just completed the erection of a
new building, and for which he has
installed new type and presses. The
Enterprise is under tho management
of his eldest son, while Mr. Graham
personally superintends the Gaeette
Both papers are highly Creditable
specimens of Western country weeklies—newsy, Intelligently written, well
printed and with good advertising patronage. Their popularity among
their constituents ls shown by their
circulation, and by the manner In
which their columns are in demand by
the business men of their towns.
Mr. Graham is a Mason I of over
thirty yenrs Btanding. Music is one
of his favorite pleusnrea, and in band
organization ho hns taken lifelong Interest.
Among his fellow newspaper men
fow men nre more popular Or respect
ed thnn Mr. Graham, whose success ln
his profession is but the reward .of
his IndiiBtry and his personal character. In many respects he ls a typical
Western editor. Ho knows tho newspaper business thoroughly, from the
wash Iiii. of rollers and the writing of
editorial and tho rustling for subscriptions. Because of the range of his experience,- and because of Its length,
ho will romuln, as long as'he continues in the ranks of wprklng newspaper men, one of the outstanding figures

The Mt. Pleasant Maple Leaf Lacrosse
team accomplished the defeat of the
West End Intermediate Champions on
Thnrsday evening by a score of 4 to 3.
The West End team had six senior
players and the Mt. Pleasant team one.
From start to finish tbe struggle for
supremacy was fierce. Fine individual
work, great combination plays and
brilliant runs and good strong checking
marked the game throughout. Gerald
McGeer played a grand game in the
tlagB of the Maple Leafs, repeatedly
making magnificient stops of shots on
the goal. Each member of the Maple
Leafs played grand lacrosse, and especially was the playing great of Nioky
Morrison, E. Murray, R. Ravey and J.
The next match will be played on
Tuesday eveuing August 23d. There
are five games to be played for the
Intermediate Championship, and the
games uow stand 1 and 1. Tbe Maple
Leafs expect to have Fred Murray on

An effort to revive some of the very
unbecoming and ungraceful styles of
hairdressiug will, of course, have no
effect npon women who ignore such
vngar.es. But those with aesthetio
taste are more or less in revolt at seeing
the majority of women disguising them,
selves with 1840 and 1850 hair partings,
together with side-faoe curtains swollen
ont with the assistance of an under-
comb, or padding. Hair braids, twisted
in German fashion, is another horror,

The Pompadour roll in frout this winter
on the smartest women has taken the
broad proportions of early Roman and
Venetian hairdressiug, when the hair
ballooned out on the sides to an extrav

quite disfiguring to women who in fol
lowing this movement have done and
are still doing themselves au injury.
Happily, there are other aud more flat
tering styles of arranging the hair,
which the greater number are adopting.
Hair ornaments in shell, and in gold

have also increased iu size, and have a

of the extravagant examples that made
thoir first appearance during the past

Cool Kitchens
Th is warm Summer Weather is very trying to Housekeepers.   Tha
heat of the coal and wood stove is simply unbearable.
Kito hen drudgery is reduced to n minimum by the use of the GAB
STOVE and GAS HOT PLATES.   Meals can be prepared quickly
aud well without heating the whole honse.
Housekeepers with a GAS STOVE havo muoh more time for recreation than those who uso the coal and wood stoves.
In our Demonstrating and Show Room we bave many styles and
makes set np for examination and trial.   Call and see them.
