their solos in fine style and were heartily encored. The solos by Messrs. Ben
Moyles, J. Biruiiugham and Bob

received an encore. Miss Dorothy Parr
was the accompanist and proved a
clever pianist. The vocal selections
were as follows:

J. Birmingham.

(Continued from last week.)
mc turn ran its courso'in the
light, desultory nmnnei- of tublc-talk,
and Lndy Fanworthy, in her black
silk and priceless let—, leant back
with the serenity of the hostess wher,
her dinner is going well, nnd looked
.thoughtfully at Vane with the expression in her keen,eyes which Lndy
Letchford hnd noticed.
Presently Sir Chandos Oi'ine's thin
falsetto voice was heard in a moment
of silence.
"Dropped in at the Mounts last,
night," ho said: ho hail run up to
Town to interview his beauty-doctor
the duy before. "They're going well
and strong. Was in time for thnt
first piece: deuced clever! Harcourt I
wont behind to—cr—see a man 1 know
—told me thnt he's commissioned tha
author to write a comedy; and llur-
court expects a big success wilh it,"
"Quite a new man, and very young,
isn't he?" said Julian.
"Quite a boy. His name's Herbert
Wood," replied Sir Chandos, signing
to Prance to fill his glass—for   the
fourth time—"and e orinnl.e. — lin"
coun nasn't seen him yet. He s a
friend of the Polly Bainford who's
made such a hit in the first piece;
and Harcourt communicates with him
through her."
"Quite mysterious and—stagey,"
murmured Judith Orme. "You remember the piece, Lord Lesborough?"
"Yes, quito well, what I saw of
it," said Vane. "I ehould think the
author would write a very good
comedy. We must all go and see it."
"1 say. Shore," said Sir Chandos
with the flickering of the eyelids and
the twitching of tho lips which always followed his fourth glass of
champagne, "I had a regular fright
just now."
Julian raised his eyes. "Metaphorically speaking, of course," he said.
"You were in tho Seventy-second,
Wir Chandos?"
Sir Ohandos showed his perfectly
constructed teeth.
"By gad, yes; we weren't easily
frightened. But I give you my word
I was—well, rather startled. I was
coming down from my room the short
way—a little late"—he smiled and
bowed to Lady Fanworthy—"and I
ran up against the most extraordinary looking poison. Sho didn't
seem to hoar mc, when I came behind her, and when she turned—well,
outside Madamo Tussaud's I've never
seen anything llko her. A walking
corpse,, by George! And I fancy sho
must be deaf and dumb, for when 1
apologized for running against hor
she Just turned and looked at me
like—liko a statue, touched her lips,
and ears and glided Into that den of
yours.   Who is she, ch?'*v'.*
Julian watched Prance fill hieAglass
a_d stopped him when it was
ho^lf full, beforo he replied, quite
casually:
"She is an old servant of mine.
Her namo is Beborah. I'm sorry she
Startled you." .
"Oh,vthat's - all right," said Sir
Chandos, but grudgingly. "But you
must have a queer fancy. If she belonged to rile I should send her to
Barnum & Bailey's."
"I'm sure you would," said Julian
So smoothly that thero was a general laugh.
"Tho fact is," said Vane, with a
nod and a smile at Julian, "uo ono
but an old and faithful servant
would stand tho awful smells of
Julian's den."
"You go in for chemistry, I understand, Shore?" said Lord Lisle. "A
most Interesting study. 1 used to-
dabble in it, but quito unpvofession-
. ally. What branch have you taken
up?"
Julian shrugged his shoulders; the
slight shrug which hinted at his
Spanish blood. "Oh, well," he replied, modestly, "I ain trying to find
a new color."
"Reallyl How interesting! How
clever you must bc!".excluimed the
young girl. "I hoj- it will be a
nice color, one that will suit us
ladies."
"Any color I am fortunate enough
to discover will possess that virtue," he retorted with u slight bow.
"One of these days Julian will
awake to find himself famous," said
Vaei; "and in quite a new lino for
the Mannerings. 1 don't think nny
of thein has come out strong as a
scientist."
"I should so liko to see your—laboratory; is that the right name?"
said the young girl.
"Julian smiled at her Indulgently.
*"So you shall; whenever you please;
though there is very little to sec."
"Tako my advice, Miss Liminiiig-
ton, and—don't," snld Vane.
"You'll see nothing but pots and
pans in a variety of gluss and iron;
and you will bo assailed by a smell
that will hniint you moro than any
ghost you have at the Grange."
"Lord l-sborough's advice Is
good, I assure you," snld Julian
vitli a charming frankness and modesty.
Lady Fanworthy, who had boen
listening to tho conversation with a
non-committal sniilo and drooped
lids, looked up and around the table,
gave the sign which every woman at
•once sees, and no mnn ever notices,
and the ladies rose and followed her
to tho  drawing-room.
Vane gathered the men round him
and sent about the claret-jug ari_
crardled port, and set an example by
lighting his old briar—tho briar
wliich he had smoked on tha Fairy
Isle. Tho conversation promptly
took a sporting direction, and Vano
boro his share of it; but every now
and thon he became preoccupied and
absent-minded-, and presently he
said:
"Won't    any- one   tnke
wind?   Orme?" '
Sir'Chandos filled his glass, tossed
It off, and rose, a trillc shaky, with
the others.
When they entered tho drawing-
room, Judith was nt tho piano playing ln tho soft, Indolent fashion In
which .Women play while they nro
waiting for the men;-and sho slopped nnd looked-mechanically rit Jul-
ia'n.^for, as usual, everybody wanted
to^luiii-   hlin  sing.
"Is it too soon after dinnor, Julian?"    suid Vann   with his band  *m
any  more
Julian's shoulder.
"No," he snid, "if Miss Orme will
play  the accompaniment."
Slie looked at bim, beyond him.
"Yon usuully play your own," she
suid.
"This is a new one," he said; "and
I can't play at  sight."
Slie sat down to the piano, with
the faintest suggestion of resignation, and played the prelude, and hu
sang.
It wns Pinsiiti's " Tis I," and hs
sung, it—well, his rendering of the
famous song would have satisfied even the composer. The conversation
faltered and died out. and every ono
listened in a profound, an emotional
silence.
"Oh, it is beautiful, •lienutiful!"
murmured the young Miss l.iinniiiig-
ton. "What a lovely, lovely voico
Mr. Shore has; and how exquisitely
he sings!"
Vane, who happened to be near her,
nodded perfect agreement.
"Yes; my cousin has « wonderful
voice, hasn't he?" he suid, warmly.
"Ask him lo sing 'Kathleen Mavour-
neen.' I shouldn't be surprised if ho
makes yon  cry."
Julian song "Kathleen Mavour-
neen," and succeeded in bringing
tears to tho eyes of more than Miss
Llmmington.
"First rate; splendid!" said Sir
Charles, with a half-defiant glance at
his wife. "Sing us something else,
Shore?"-
But Julian courteously declined.
With the Spanish shrug of tho shoulders he left the piano and sauntered
to the French windows, which had
been left open, for the night was
warm, and passed out on to the terrace. He thought that he was done,
and he lit a cigarette and leant
against the stone railing, his eyelids
drooping, his long lashes sweeping
his sallow cheek. Music excites the
performer as well as tbe listener,
and his h.art was beating quickly.
While ho hue. been singing his eyes
had rested upon Judith Orme's profile. From her beauty lie had drawn
the inspiration which had . enabled
him to move his hearers as they had
been moved. And now his heart was
aching for her, as it always ached
the moment he was out of hor
sight. At first he had fought against
tho passion which had taken possession of him, had tried to argue himself out of it; but ho had long ceased to struggle, and now surrendered
himself as the demoniac surrenders
to the spirit that enthrals it. And
jealousy was adding another torture
to that of unrequited love, for he had
seen, almost on tho first day, the
day ho had called on her with Vane,
that sho was in love with his cousin.
Love makes the dullest man quickwitted and sharp-eyed whero the woman ho loves is concerned, and Julian had discovered that Judith was
not heartless, as tho world considered her, but that her heart had been
given to Vane. Fate had willed that
his cousin should not only step in
between him and the Lesborough
peerage, but thnt ho should stand between him and tho woman whom he
loved with an absorbing passion
whicll wns neatly akin to mndness.
With a gesture of despair he flung
the end of his cigarette away nnd
went towards the end of the terrace,
As lie was descending the steps ho
saw Sir Chandos Oi'tiic coming out
of the smoking-room where he had
been for the hrnndy-niid-soda which
pulled him together after his dir.ner.
At the same moment there wns tho
frou-frou of a woman's dress, and
one of the Indies stepped on to . tho
terrace from the drawing-room, and
Julian heard Sir Chandos suy, cautiously:
"Is that you, Judith?"
Julian went softly-down the steps
nnd stood under the terrace listening.
"Yes, father; do you want ine?"
replied Judith, coming towards him.
-They slopped almost immediately
Ithovo Julian, so that he could hear
every word, though both father and
daughter spoke-in.a low voice.
"Yes," said Sir Chandos with a
slight hlccAugh. "Look here, Judith*,
I wnnt to talk to you. I'm getting
anxious, uneasy. You don't seem to
he making much of this gnme—now.
don'l he offended and turn away
liko that. I won't have it! I've been
a good  father  to y'ou—"
She laughed with a kind of weary
scorn.
"1 am listening," she said, coldly.
"Well, then, I'll go further and suy
you seem to nie to be milking a
moss of it. We've been down here—
how long is it'.'—and you are no 'forrader' than you wero lu London. I've

She leant against tho stono coping,
her hands clasped lightly, her eyes
fixed on the darkness.
—"Now don't go over tho old
ground and tell mo it's my fault,
that's all post and gone."
"I was not going to do so," she
said in a low voice. "It would tic
useless."
"Quite so," ho asserted. "Nothing
is more painful than that kind of—of
bickering between father and daughter, especially when they understand
eiiih other as you and I do. What I
wanted to say was that, in my opinion, l/pshoroiigh isn't a marrying
man, that ho doesn't Intend to marry; and that ho intends this Julian
Shore to succeed him hero. You can't

CONSUMPTION OF LIQUOR.
.Jorwsr Is the Least Intemperate of
AU the Nations.
Americans are only moderate drinkers compared with those of other countries. Tbe average citizeu of tbe United States, counting iu the women aud
children (which ls not fair, but serves
for the moment as a basis to figure
upon)," consumes lu the course of a year
liquors which contain one and a third
gallons of pure alcohol. But the Frenchman, who, though formerly one of the
soberest, has become the worst drunkard in the world, absorbs annually
three and a half gallons of alcohol.
The Belgian and the Swiss come next,
with a consumption of two and four-
fifths gallons. Then follow the Spau-
lard with two and a third gallons, the
Italian with just a trifle less, the Englishman and German with two and a
teuth, and the Austro-Hungnrlan witb
about one and three-quarters gallons.
On the other hand, the American citizen by no means stands at the top of
the list in respect to sobriety. The
Swede drinks only one and n sixth gallons of pure alcohol in a year; tbe Hollander drops considerably below him,
with one gallon even; the relatively virtuous Russian, notwithstanding his
much advertised addiction to vodka,
absorbs only a trifle more than six-
tenths of a gallon, and, finally, the Norwegian, who occupies a proud eminence
as the most abstemious man ln the
world, barely exceeds a modest half
gallon of the stuff In a twelvemonth's
potations. It might be added for tbo
sake of deflnlteness that the average
person ln the United Stntes annually
drinks one and a third gallons of proof
spirits (which nre 50 per ceut alcohol),
one-third of a gallon of wine and sixteen and a quarter gallons of malt liquors, chiefly beer.
ECSTASIES OF MECCA.
Scene at the Annual Visitation of
Mohammedan rilicrlms.
Mecca, at the season of the annual
visitation of Mohammedan pilgrims, Is
thus described in Everybody's ln "Withe Pilgrims to Mecca," translated
from the narrative of Ibu Jubnyr All
of Bandar Adas:
"Like a gigantic catafalque, somber,
shrouded ln mystery, the Kaaba rises
out of the seething sea of white garbed
humanity that crowds the great sacred
square of Mecca. Its door ls covered
with plates of solid silver studded with
silver nails. From the exterior of the
roof, above a stone marking the sep-
ulcher of Ishmael, which lies at the
base of the northern wall, there projects a horizontal, semicircular rain
spo.ut five yards long, twenty-four Inches wide, made of massive gold. Within the roof Is supported by three columns of aloe wood; the walls are hung
with red velvet alternating with white
squares ln which are written lu Arabic
the words, 'Allah-Jal-Jelalah' ('Praise
to God, the Almighty:). The building ls
packed with pilgrims, praying, weeping, beside themselves ln an ecstasy
of passionate devotion. Mingled with
their voices there rises from outside the
chant of the Talblh, the song of the
winding sheet, which every pilgrim
must slug on entering Mecca, on donning the sacred Ihrani, on entering the
Iliiruui, aud on starting for Minn, the
valley of desire, and Arafat, the mountain of compassion."

Digest Food
Among the First Indications  of Exhausted
Nerves—the  Cure  ie
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Tho most importnut function of the
organs of the body is the digestion
and assimilation of food, and in this
process is consumed an enormous
quantity  of nervous  energy.
As the result the moment disorders
of the nerves arise, digestion is impaired and the very source of health,
strength  and vitality   interfered with*
To prevent physical bankruptcy the
nervous system must be built up by
outsido aid, such as tbo use of Dr.
Chuse's Norvo Food, a preparation
composed of tho vory elements of nature which go to form new blood and
norvo colls.
Besides this restorative influence-
on . the whole system, Dr. Chaso's
Nervo Food has an immediate and
direct effect on the digestive system.
It stimulates the nerves of taste and
induces a good iluw of saliva to aid
digestion. It excites the glands of the
stoinaeli and produces a plontiful supply of the gastric digestive fluids. It
sharpens the uppotito and arouses
hunger.
Especially where    appetite and    the
ability to digest have diminished, ns
in nervous exhaustion, anaemia, the
result of sickness, overwork, or worry,
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is by all odds
the most effective treatment that can
possibly be obtained.
It ensures good digestion, regular
healthful action of the liver, kidneys
and bowels and the building up and
revitalizing of the whole system.
Mrs. George Fuller, Lakeland, Man.,
writes: "I am very glad to be able to
state that I have received great benefit from the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food. It has cured me of nervous
headache from which I used to bo a
groat sufferer, and I am no longer
troubled with twitching of the nerves
in the arms and legs that I used to
havo aR soon as I went to bed. I nm
grateful for this cure and shall nlwnys recommend Dr. Chase's Nervo
Food to anyone suffering ns I did."

PEDIGREES TO ORDER.
Thriving   Trade   In   Coats   of   Arms.
With Lineage to Fit Them.
Wltb all our boasted democracy certain classes of Americans are as keen
In their pursuit of uotable ancestry
which will entitle them to display
coats of arms as the most snobbish
aristocrat could be. An authority in
heraldry made tbe stutement awhile
ago that only forty or fifty American
families at tbe most are entitled to the
insignia of nobility. But nobody can
convince the average citizen who has
'made money" of any sucb thing, and
tbat supports very comfortably a
coterie of "genealogists" In New York,
London and Indeed many of the larger
cities here and abroad, who make a
business of discovering loug lost relatives iu the age of chivalry for worthy
twentieth ceutury descendants.
Genuine old armorial bearings In
mauy cases represent puns or a play
upon tbe family name ln the design,
which makes it comparatively easy
to cut distinguished ancestry out of
whole cloth, ball mark and all, and
have the "fake" look passably "actual." For Instance, the nrms of Sir
John Pecbe ss they appear In a window
of the chapel at LulIIngstone, Kent,
consist of two peach , trees bearing
fruit, an old English E being Imprinted upon each poach. The Bacon escutcheon shows u boar nnd the Lamb
family's three lambs.
This tendency ls well Illustrated
among Uie Americnn families which
really have Inherited coats of arms.
The arms of the Staudish family consist of three standing dishes, the
Wheelocks of New Jersey display three
Catherine wheels, while tbe Carters of
Philadelphia huvo three cart wheels,
and tlie emblem of tbe Astor family
Is n yellow aBter. How a coat of arms
may be utilized for decorative effect
appears ln the new Hotel Astor, which
Is one of tbe most sumptuously furnished of New York's great hostelries. In
frescoes and wall hangings, lace nnd
linen, rugs nnd carpets, on glassware,
china and sliver, the aster appears ln
every conceivable form, fitted to every
possible scheme of design. This, too,
is au ancient use adapted to modern
usefulness.
Wben lt ls suggested that the use of
family symbols Is undemocratic the
amateur In genealogy reminds us that
Washington, John Adams, Ltvingston,
Jay and many another Revolutionary
champion of equal rights used a crest.
Furthermore, there Is a tradition, at
least not disproved, that the most inveterate hater of monarchs, Oliver
Cromwell, was having his own family
tree looked through for titled ancestors
at the time of bis death.
LINCOLN'S DISPOSITION.
Ordinarily Cheerful, Il Held a Strata
of  Deep  Meluucholy.
Hopeful and cheerful us he ordinarily,
seemed, there was in Mr. Llucoln's disposition u strain of deep melancholy.
This was not peculiar to hiin alone, for
the pioueers as a race were somber
ratber than gay. Their UveB had been
passed for generations under the most
trying physical conditions, near malaria
infested streams and where they breathed the polsou of decaying vegetation.
Insufficient shelter, storms, tbe cold of
winter, savage enemies and the cruel
labor that killed off all but tlie hardiest
of tbem had at the same time killed tbe
happy-go-lucky gayety of an easier
form of life. Tbey were thoughtful,
watchful, wary; capable, Indeed, of
wild merriment, but it has been said
that although a pioneer might lnugh he
could not easily be made to smile.
Lincoln's mind was unusually sound
and sane aud normal. He had a cheerful, wholesome, sunny nature, yet be
had inherited the strongest traits of the
pioneers, and there was in him, moreover, much of the poet, witb a poet's
capacity for joy and pain. It ls not
strange thnt as he developed Into mnn-
i hood, especlnlly when his deeper nature
began to feel the stirrings of ambition
aud of love, that these seasons of depression and gloom came upon him
with overwhelming force.—Helen Nico-
lay In St. Nicholas.
THE BARK OF TREES.
A Mixed Costume.
It Is said of the late Lord Salisbury
that he once bad to dress at breakneck
speed for a levee nnd In the absence of
his valet plunged at a heap of things
nnd threw tbem on as tbey enmo. He
appeared at court ln tbe coat of the elder brethren of Trinity House, tbe trousers of a deputy lieutenant and a hat
ot the royal archers. Putting on the
finishing touches before the mirror, he
hung bis sword upon the wrong side
and gartered himself about tbe wrong
knee. He bad assumed a waistcoat
r.ade ln days wheu he wns of less ample glrtb, bo that between the hem of
this garment and tbe waist of tbe trousers was a gap which all but himself
observed.
Nature's Provision I'or the Relief of
the Growing Plant.
The practical cultivator understands
that nature makes provision for getting
rid of the bark of trees as the trunk increases In size. On the growth of the
past season may be seen small olive
spots. These are formations of cork.
From year to year, in subsequent development, these little patches spread,
really eating their way through the
bark. This ls the provision which nature makes for Dually rifting the bark
ln each species of plant. These cork
cells have their own special lines of development, and tills ls the reason why
each kind of tree has Its own particular
bark. Tbe characteristics are bo prominent that clever observers con select
different kinds of trees by their bark
even at midnight. As It is the evident
intention of nature to get rid of old
bark, lt ls a great help to the tree to assist nature ln this respect, and any
wash or treatment which aids the
plant in getting rid of lt ls a practical advantage. Soapy water wash or
lye water ls useful, and even scraping
has been found of great advantage.
In a rough sort of way lime wash Is
frequently used, the only objection being the white and glaring color. It ts,
however, the cheapest and tbe best of
all bark treatment.

Professor Frederick Soddy of Glasgow university holds the theory that
gold Is gradually disintegrating into

other parent element and Is Itself

mis Lnng Ventilating Process Serves
a Doable Purpose.
The net of yawning Is distinctly beneficial ln two ways. In the flrst place
It serves the purpose of lung ventilation. Tbe lungs are not filled or exhausted by ordinary respiration. There
ls a certain quantity of air which physiologists call "residual air" left In the
recesses of the lungs after the ordinary
respiration. This In time becomes vitiated and affects the blood and, through
It, tbe nervous centers.
Tbo result Is a yuwn, wblcb Is really
a stretching of tho respiratory chamber
to Its fullest capacity and the filling
of It with freshly Inspired nlr which
drives the vitiated nlr out Yawning ls
also beneficial in bo far as lt opens,
stretches and ventilates tbe vocal, nasal and auditory chambers In Immediate connection with tbe mouth.
The cracking sound often heard when
yawning Is due to the stretching and
opening of tbe eustachian tubes, which
form a communication between the
middle ear and the back of the throat.
The deafness which often accompanies
a cold is due to the congestion of these
tubes.—London Hospital.

Cost of London's Crimo.
London ls paying the penalty paid
by all large cities. Crime is Inside
her gates. In round numbers ehe has
to pay nearly $8,000,000 to keep criminals ln check, for that ls the sum paid
out to her police, courts, prisons and
prosecuting officers. It falls to Include
stolen property, losses due to the Idleness of criminals, losses to Injured parties, etc
Serious crimes, such as burglary,
housebreaking, counterfeiting, etc.,
are Increasing.
Arrests are moro frequent than formerly, and each arrest adds to the expense and loss account of the city.
Estimates put the bill of the clty'o expenses as high as (10,000,000.
In other words, each taxpayer or head
of a household of five persons pays
16.81 a year for London's crime. Nor
do these millions make up the total
loss. There are the hundreds of thousands taken, consumed by the criminals,
hidden away, lost or destroyed. Add
then to these the amounts paid by private parties to prevent burglary, etc.,
watchmen, caretakers, burglar alarms,
door and window fastenings, safes, re
volvers, life protectors, dogs, etc., and
ono begins to get a fatrly good Idea of
what are the losses due to crime ln a
large city.
A table prepared ln London puts the
police and courts down for $9,149,000,

M. E. NICHOLS.
Editor-In Chief,   Telegram,  Winnipeg,
Canada.
That the Canadian West is not on
ly the country of opportunity but tho
country of youug meu, the prominent
positions held by many in the Province of Manitoba, who are ln the
first years of the fourth decade ol
their lives afford ample evidence.
No more striking example could be
giveu than that of the success met
With by Mr. M. E. Nichols, President
of the Telegram Printing Company
and Editor-in-chief of the daily paper
published by that company. Mr.
Nlcholls is not a western mau In so
far aB years of residence may be
counted, but he is western in his
trend of mind, his virility, his energy,
his Independence of thought and fearlessness of expression unrestrained
by the fact that he ls a loyal and
leading exponent of the views of a
great political party in Western Canada.
Mr. Nichols has only been a resident of the Canadian West for a
short time but his career and work
are familiar to the readers of the
public press throughout the Dominion. There have been few Canadian
Parliamentary correspondents who
have contributed brighter or better
informal articles to the papers they
represented In the Press Gallery at
Ottawa than Mr. Nichols during the
numerous sessions of the Dominion
Houso in which he represented the
Toronto Telegram. To Mr. Nichols
may be given the credit of Introducing into Canadian parliamentary correspondence the bright style which
In now demanded, containing not only departmental news, quasi-editorial
comment and picturesque description, but also the personal note as to
the parliamentary characters that
had hitherto appeared in the public
eye of the Dominion merely through
a verbatim or curtailed report of a
speech. The clever, racy communications of Mr. Nichols to the Toronto
Telegram during the Parliamentary
sessions at Ottawa became a feature
of that paper during the years he
was the Ottawa correspondent of
that newspaper.
Upon Mr. Nichols becoming Edttor-
ln-chlef and the principal editorial
writer on the Toronto World the
same clever brightness distinguished
his style that had given him his reputation as a special correspondent.
In close touch for years with Canada's greatest Parliamentarians and
public men on the vantage ground o*
special correspondence nt the Dominion capital, compelled ln tho course.

Mr. NlcholB' ability - was recognized by that astute Parliamentarian and newspaper man Mr. W.
F. Maclean, M.P., President of the
World Publishing Company, and a
few years ago he was tendered the
position of managing editor of "The
Toronto World." His success ln
that position as editor of the leading
Independent Conservative dally ln
the publishing centre of Canada Is a
feature of Canadian journalism and
attracted the attention of the lending
Conservatives of Manitoba and the
shareholders of the Winnipeg Telegram.
■• Mr. Nichols shrewdly saw the opportunities offered a young man as
managing editor of a great Conservative organ In Western Cnnndn nnd
the desirability of financial Investment In such nn enterprise and he
became Editor-in-chief of tbe Telegram and President of the Telegram
Printing Company. In the few
months that he has had editorial
charge the evidence of his personality and hlB newspaper acumen has
become apparent and the Toleernm
Is considered one of the brightest
ns well as one of the best Informed
dally papers published In the Dom
lnlon.
Mr. Nichols   la   a   yonng   man   to

but lf this is the age of the young
man Western Canada ls peculiarly
his  country.
He was born In Halton County In
the Province of Ontario on February
11, 1873, his father being a native of
the state of New York who came to
Canada In 1825 and settled flrst ln
the Niagara District and afterwards
In the Township of Trafalgar ln
Halton County, whee hs died In 1898
Mr. Nichols' mother was a native
of Tyrone County, Ireland. Educated at the Public and High School
of his native county he for two years
taught school ln the County of Grey'
a training considered by many as
invaluable to those who 'subsequently assume managerial authority In
thr. business world.
In 1895 Mr. Nichols began his
journalistic life as a reporter on the
Toronto Telegram. During the Dominion Parliamentary session of 1897
he went to Ottawa as sessional correspondent of the Telegram and continued to represent that paper until
January 1903 when he became Editor
of the Toronto World. This position
he occupied until October 1905 whon
he resigned to accept the management of the Winnipeg Telegram.
Mr. Nichols has the advantage of
being an all-round newspaper man,
having occupied every position on a
dally paper from junior reporter
to managing editor. During his
newspaper career he has had several Important assignments of national
and international Interest, among
which was the meeting of the Anglo-
American Commission which convened first at Quebec and later at
Washington.

To Those of Sedentary Occupation.—Men who follow sedentary occupations, whioh deprive them of

without question the most efficacious
on tho market. They are easily procurable, easily taken, act expeditiously, and they are surprisingly cheap
considering their excellence.
A Popular Route.
Tho popularity of the Canadian Northern line as a short ond direct route
betweon Winnipeg and Edmonton is
evidonced by the large passenger traffic being handled by this rond. The
increasing business is not alone confined to local traffic. Tho solid through
trains to Edmonton carry through
first-class sloopors and dining cars
serving nioals a la carte. This train
is a marvel of travelling comfort, gratifying evory demand of the tourist and
pleasure-seeker. The lino runs tlirough

Young Men in Business.
Tho very struggle to keep one's head
above water and guard against failure, hard times, or panics, the constant
effort to stretch e little capital over
a large business and adjust means to
ends, develops managing ability, leadership, staying power, stamina, and
grit whicll no amount of working for
others in an ordinary situation could
ever produce. It is the spur of necessity constantly pushing us on, putting
our powers to the test, and calling
upon all our ingenuity and inventiveness and originality—it is the situation that forces us to a perpetual effort to bring things out right—that
develops power. We grow most in a
situation that forces, us to think, study
and plan ways and means of engineering our business or enterprise. A
young man entering business with littlo capital, in these days of giant combinations, like a soldier in battle who
is reduced to his last few cartridges,
must be doubly careful of his aim and
doubly zealous in his endeavour, for
everything is at stake. Ho must call
into action every bit of judgment,
courage, sagacity, resourcefulness, ingenuity, a'nd originality ho can muster. He must make every shot tell—
ov9iy dollar oount. What is tho re
suit? The young man begins to grow.,
he fools his master purpose prodding
him to do his best; ' his mind is con
stantly being stretched ovor difficult
problems; liis ingenuity is taxed to
make both ends meet, to provide for
tho coming bills, to pay pressing notes,
to tide over a dull season, or to pull
liis business through hard times or a
panic. This is liko playing a great life
game of chess, where everything depends upon a single move, and where
the final result is suocess or failure.
He cannot afford to make a bad move,
a misstep might be fatal. Ho cannot
afford to be careless, indifferent, or
lazy. It will not do for him to be
caught napping. He must be on the
alort, watching for every advantage,
and looking out for the enemies who
would trip him.—Extracted from an
article in Success.

CURE THE MOST
EXTREME CASES
STONE IN THE KIDNEYS CANNOT
STAND    BEFORE DODD'S
KIDNEY   PILLS
Mr. S. A. Cassldy of Ottawa, Permanently Cured After Years of Suffering by the Great Canadian Kidney
Remedy.
Ottawa, Ont., March 26, (Special).—
While all Canada knows that Dodd's
Kidney Pills are the standard remedy
for all Kidney Complaints, it may surprise somo people to know they cure
such extreme cases as Stone in the
Kidneys. Yet that is what they have
done right here in Ottawa.
Mr. S. A. Cassidy, the man cured,
is the well-known proprietor of the
Bijou hotel on Metcalf street, and in
an interview he says: "My friends all
know that I havo been a martyr to
Stone in tho Kidneys for yenrs. They
know that besides consulting the bost
doctors in the city and trying every
medicine I could think of, I was unable to get better.
"Some timo ago a friend told me
Dodd's Kidney Pills would cure me.
As a last resort I tried them, and
tliey have cured me.
"I could not imagine more severe
suffering than one endures who has
Stone in the Kidneys, and I feel the
greatest gratitude to Dodd's Kidney
Pills."
If tho diseaso is of the Kidneys or
from the Kidneys, Dodd's Kidney
Pills will cure it.
Phonograph as a Witness.
The use of a phonograph as a wit
ness ocurred for tho first time on a
recont trial in the United States court |
at Boston. In this connection it is recalled that photographs hud to fight
their way to the witness stand. The
right to put telephone conversations
in evidence has been upheld in some
cases. If the use of the phonograph
as a witness becomes general it will
also become a universal memorandum.
Contracts of all sorts, from a merger
deal to a promise of marriage can be
recorded as infallibly as on paper or
parchment. In breach-of-promise
cases, especially, a phonograph would
be of great value.

Skulls for Paving.
While municipal authorities are deciding upon the relative value of asphalt, Belgian blocks, vitrified bricks,
and wood squares as paving material,
the inhabitants of Gwandu, in Africa,
havo settled the problem to their entire satisfaction by using the skulls of
their enemies for paving approaches
to their town. More than 1,200 skulls
have boen used on the roads leading to
the various gates. Polished to the
whiteness of ivory by the friction Of
couutlesB feet, they present quite an
attractive appearance. When a new
pavoniont is needed there is no scandal
about the contract. War is declared
upon some neighboring tribe, and the
worn-out pavement is replaced.—New

The Plain Truth.'
One of the most notable banquets
annually held in the city of New York
is unique. Though it is one of tbe
most expensive dinners that the Waldorf Astoria selves, and though it is
attended by some of the most eminent
professional men and some of the
wealthiest financiers in the country;'
no. wines are served, no cigars, are
smoked, and the only bottles found on
the tables are those containing the
pure and sparkling Apollinoris. Furthermore the diners all sit down
promptly at 6.15 p.m., and the banquet is adjourned at 10 o'clock. It is
one of the happiest, freest, jolliest
banquets served in the city of new
York, and it celebrates the work of an
institution universally admired and
respected. We refer to tho banquet
of the Y.M.C.A. At the twenty-fourth
annual dinner, marking the thirty-
ninth anniversary of the international
committee of the association recently,
the guests included Governor Utter of

Relic of Scotland's Kings.
An old cushion on which the Crown
of Scotland rested was recently placed in the jewel room at Edinburgh
Castle. The cushion has been presented to the nation by Sir Patrick Keith
Murray, Bart., of Ochtortyre, dried.
It has been in the possession of the
Keith Murray family since the marriage of the late Sir William Keith
Murray, eighth Baronet, to the heiress
of the last of the Keith Marlschals,
and who thereby became owner of Dun-
nottar Castle and Ravelston House,
near Edinburgh. It was sent in June
last to the King's Remembrancer in
Edinburgh, who, on receiving a certificate of authenticity from Sir Patrick
Keith Murray, lodged the cushion with

Always Raining There.
There is a group of islands to the
south of New Zealand called the Sisters, or Seven Sisters, which are reputed to be subjected to a ipractically
constant rainfall. The same may be
said of the islands and mainland of
Tlora del Fuego, saving for the dlf
feienee that the rain often takes th--
form of sleet and snow. On a line
running round the world from four to
eight or nine degrees there are patches
over which rain seldom ceases to fall.
This ls called the "zone of constant
precipitation," but at the same timo
thero are several localities along it with
very little rainfall.

Makes Other Servants Lazy.
Japanese servants long ago won, by
their industry and efficiency, the respect of their employers, else the)
would not be able.to get salorieB that
run from $50 to $75 a month. The
yellow servants of other races are just
as appreciative of their abilities. They
know that they can be relied upon to
do their own work and all that the
other servants neglect. It is surprising tp me how much a Japanese will
do of the work that five or six maids
are hired to accomplish in a house. He
will help the parlormaid at her duties
one minute and the next will find
him assisting the waitress to set the
table. He is not above helping a
chambermaid to clean the rooms, and
he loves r,o help the laundress carry
the bundles of clothes upstairs. He
is delighted to run errands for the
cook, and is amiable enough to help
the kitcheumaid to peel potatoes w'hen
she is late at her work. All th_B aid
and comfort to'his fellow-servants is
given with no neglect of his master's
business. So there is nothing for the
housekeeper to say against his varied
efficiencies. He does, hqwever, have
the effect of making servants more
lazy and careless than bofore. He usually does about half of their work.

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED,
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There Is only one way to cure deafness,
and that ls by constitutional remedies.
Deafness Is caused by an lnfiamad condition of the mucous IIiiIhk of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed
inflammation can be taken out and this
hearing, and when It l» entirely closed,
DenfncBs ls the result, and unless the
Inflammation can bo taken out and this
tube restored to Its normal condition,
hearlne; will be destroyed forever: nine
cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mueotis surfaces.

Leading Dietetic Authority.
Dr. Robert Hutchison, the leadlnjr authority at the present day on the subject of dietetics, ls a Scotsman by birth,
and was educated ot tho University of
Edinburgh. He was ono ot the most
brilliant students which the university
ever had, and he wo*s awarded every
prize and scholarship practically which
tho university had to offer him. Edinburgh did not seem to give him a large
enough field for his abilities, and he
I followed the example afforded by many
I of his countrymen ln going south to the
metropolis. There his abllty was at
once recognized, and, like the late Sir
Andrew Clark, ho was appointed physician to tho London Hospital. Since
then his career has been one of Interrupted success. Ho has published what
ls at the present time the standard
work on "Food and Dietetics," and also
a manual on children's disease. Dr.
Hutchison Is a tall, very strongly-built
man, clean shaven, with a quiet but
Impressive manmr, and his whole personality spells efficiency. He ls possessed of a fund of dry humor, and of
many trlends.
KING'S SECOND COUSIN.
Count Albert Victor Gleichon Now Attached    In    Military   Capacity   to
U. 9. Embaooy at Washington.
Count Albert Victor Glelchen, who Is
attached In a military capacity to the
British embassy at Washington, ls, ln
spite of his German name and title, an
English soldier and ln every sense of
the word a Briton. He Is no stranger
to this country, writes the Marquise de
Fontenoy, which he visited about sixteen years ago, and on his return home
published an article relating his American experiences and which appeared
ln Murray's Magazine, attracting a
good deal of attention on this side of
the Atlantic, owing to the fact lhat he
had been Imprudent enough,to mingle
with his praise some criticisms which
were no-t altogether well received here.
He ls, however, a gallant soldier, one
of the most popular men ln the English
army, alike with his fellow officers and
with the rank and file, and besides that
an extremely accomplished man, who
paints, sketches, plays, and sings, aa
well as he writes. He Is the author of
several successful books, one ot the
most Interesting ot which is a record
of his experiences as a member of Sir
Rennell Rodd's mission to the Negus
of Abyssinia.
Besides being the godson ot King
Edward and one of his equerries, Count
Glelchen ls his cousin. For his father,
the late Prince Victor Hohenlohe, wifo,
as Count Glelchen, rose to the rank of
admiral ln the English navy and distinguished himself ln the Crimean war,
was a favorite nephew of Queen Victoria, being a son.of her half sister
Prince Victor Hohenlohe, on marrying
Miss Laura Seymour, assumed the title
of Count Glelchen, which belonged to
his family, and abdicated his rights and
prerogatives as scion of one of the mediatized or formerly reigning houses of
Europe, descending to the rank of a
mere noble. Otherwise he would have
been compelled to marry Miss Seymour
morganatlcally. Prince Victor's sister
was tho mother of the present German
Empress, and Count Glelchen Is, therefore, first cousin of hor German majesty. Thanks to this, he has enjoyed
an exceptionally privileged position at
the Kaiser's court-nml In Berlin society,
while acting as military attache of the
British embassy there. His mother
now bears the title of Princess Victor
Hohenlohe by vlrlue of an order of
Queen Victoria, though lt Is not recognized on the continent. One of his sisters, Countess Feodora Glelchen, has
achieved no little fame both as a painter and as a sculptress, having won
prizes both at the Royal Academy and
tho Paris salon, while another sister,
Countess Valda, who possesses a magnificent voice, married a few weitks
ago M. Machell, under secretary of state
ln the department ot finance of the
Egyptian Government, and a son nt the
famous sportsman, Capt. Machell.
Count Glelchen, who holds the rank
of ncutenant-icnlonel in the Grenadier
Guards, and who is covered with decorations, Is a bachelor, fur from rich,
and there are no restrictions In the way
of  his  marrying  anybody  he. chooses.
A Mysterious Message  Which Comes
from the Unknown to Cape Clear
Every Midnight.
Mr. Marconi tells a weird story in
connection with his system of wireless
telegraphy. There is a station off
Cape Clear, the utmost point of land
to the westward of the British Isles.
Here are received final messages dis-
patchd by ships outward bound, and
the first-hail of vessels that have
crossed the Atlantic st wring east. To
this lonely station there comes shortly
after the stroke of midnight a mysterious message, untranslatable, incomprehensible. But always at a certain
point, varying night by night, there
is delivered one word that is ever the
same. It is recognizable only by its
unvarying sign. It belongs to no
language known to this planot. For
two years the mysterious message has
nover missed arriving invariably between midnight and the stroke of one
in the morning. Mr. Marconi's explanation of the phenomenon is as
striking as is the incident itself. Be
believes it is Mars endeavoring to
communicate with her sister planet.
Why the message should exclusively
reach this particular spot on earth,
what Mars wants to say, and wherefore the unrequited patience of .nightly repeating tlio communication
through two years, are matters to be
guessed at. That the mysterious mes-
sago arrives at the times ond in the
manner indicated are facts for whicll
Mt. Marconi vouches.

A Gallery of Forgeries.
Paris possesses a very fine gallery
of modern masters, largely of tho Bar
bizon school, not ono of which is genuine. It is to the painter llurdignicB
that France is indebted for this queer
collection of the spurious. Passing
through the Ituo dc Vaugirard one
Jay, his eye caught some canvases in
a window. They were all signed by'
.prominent names—including his own—
and every signuturo was forged
Passing inside, the list became more
oxtonsive, and the painter found himself in tho presence of false Corots.
Diazs, Daubignys, I.nncrctB, Isabeys

Tho revelation of his own identity enabled Harpignies to become possessed
of this collection for something leal
than the proverbial old song, nnd it
may now bo inspected by those interested in such matters at tbe State furniture depot, where it is preserved ns
a kind of high-water mark in soph

"THE MARKET QUESTION
The agitation fur a change in the site
ft»  the  proposed City   Market   from
WestMi-ster avenue to Cordova street
»honld not meet with any recognition.
It ls of vital Interest to the cititeus of
MA, pleasant to see that the agitation
(does not gain any force and thay should
be alive to the situation; alio, watch
the attitude of their representatives ln
ihe Council opon tbe question.
When the people of the oity bave
(decided br vote where the Market lite
ahould be, it la strange tbat a handful
•f agitators should have the nerve to
posaa (forward and endeavor to set aside
tbe plebiscite.
■Tho slowness of the Market Committee which has moved forward no faster
than it had to townrd building, ma}
account for the restlessness and agitation. Certainly tbe Committee gives
the impression of negligence and
Insincerity. The work on the Market
Building should now bo well advanced.
That Cordova sti est, near the vaudeville theetro, is the hcort-of-t he-city
nnd most oonveniont for all the people,
la pure nonsense. In a few years Cordova ;etrect will be what Water street
li today.
t&ovx about the people who are' to
-bring produce, fU , to the Market?
Mnst 'tbey be complied to tne
tbe U. P. K., and ths tamline
on OirJova street only for transportation. The site chosen—at foot of
JVestmlnster avenuo on Mt. Pleasant
tide of False Creek—hoi the advantage
fit roads, 'tramline, Great Northern Railway .find is aooe«suble by water. Boats
fsa como direct from tbe Fraser rivor
and unload at tbe Market; the freight
oats of tbe Loin Island Elcotric Railway
can reeoh the Market easily; the Great
Northern can unload farm products at
the doors; the farmers oan drive rlgbt
lo the Market via Weitmlnstor rood and
Westminster avenue. The C. P. K.,
cau build a track to the new Market—it
being the 00 X means of trail, por -alio 1
«hich does not at present lead direct to
tbe selected site.

PROGRESS.
Some time ago there was a notable
automobile procession in the city of Buffalo, N.Y. It was notable for its size, and
also for the fact that it was entirely com.
posed of automobile wagons (like that
in the cut above), built to distribute
the .advertising literature of the World's
Dispensary Medical Association, proprietors and manufacturers of Dr. Pierce's
medicines. In many a town and village
Dr. Pierce'a automobile has been the
pioneer horseless vehicle. These wagons,
sent to every important section of the
country, are doing more than merely
advertise Dr. Pierce's Remedies—they
are pioneers of progress, heralds of the
automobile age.
And this is iu keeping with the record
made by Dr. Pierce and his famous pre.
parations, which have always kept in
the front on their merits. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is still the
leading medicine for disorders and die.
esses of the stomach and digestive and
nutritive systems, for the purifying of
the blood and healing of weak lungs.
Women place Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription in the front of all put-up
medicines specially designed for women's
use. The wide benefits this medicine
has brought to women have been well
summed up in the words " // mates tvtat
women strong and sick women well."
The reputation of Dr. Pierce's Pleas*
ant Pellets ss a safe and effective laxative for family use is international.
It may be asserted without fesr of contradiction that no other firm or company
engaged in the vending of put-up medicines can rank with th. World's Dispensary Medical Association, either in tba
opinion of the medical profession or of
the intelligent public. The Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, which is
connected with the "World's Dispensary,*' is alone sufficient to prove this
supremacy. Here is a great modern
hospital, always filled .with patients,
where every day successful operations
are performed on men and women whose
diseases demand the aid of surgery. No
hospital in Buffalo is better equipped,
with respect to its modern appliances, or
the surgical ability of its staff. Dr. R. V.
Pierce, the chief consulting physician of
this great institution, has associated with
himself nearly a score of physicians,
each man being a picked man, chosen
for his ability in the treatment and cure
of soma special form of disesse.
The oner that Dr. Pierce makes to
men snd women suffering with chronic
diseases of a free consultation by Utter,
is really without a parallel. It places
without cost or charge the entire resources of a great medical institute at
the service of the sick. Such en offer is
uot for one moment to be confounded
with those offers of " free medical advice"
which are made by people who are not
physicians, cannot and do not practice
medicine, aad are only saved from prosecution by artfully wording their adver
