R. King, of Dawson, and Mis^ Mabel A. Blair, a well known and popular young lady of this city. The

intimate friends of the contracting
parties. The bride was attended by
Miss Edith Parker, while Mr. William T. Blair, brother of the bride,
supported the groO'i. The happy
couple were the re ..tents of many
handsome and usctul presents, testifying to the esteem in which .they

The twelfth annual exhibition of
the Vancouver Poultry and Pet
Stock Association will open on Tuesday next, Jan. 16th, and will continue till Friday, Jan. 19th. The exhibition will be held in the vacant
building on Cordova Street recently
occupied by Edgctt & Co.     It is ex
pected that the show this year will
eclipse any ever held in this city.
Considerable interest is being manifested in the coming show and a
large number of entries have been
received by the Secretary, Mr. M.
A.   Beach.
The premiums and prizes offered
this year are bigger than ever, and
worth going after. In addition to
the regular cash premiums offered
there arc several cups and trophies
to be given, also several special cash
prizes in special events.
Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made the
-tihjcct of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
docs to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.

not blind to its difliculties—"
"She may refuse to—to marry me,"
Mannering put in in a low voice and
with his eyes fixed on tho patch of
sand and sky framed by tho doorway
of the-hut.
"I do not think she will," returned Fleming in almost as low a tone.
"You must ask her—put the case to
"No, no!" Mannering exclaimed,
springing to his feet and standing at
the door, with his back to Fleming.
"I'-'can'tI I—I should break down. I
should1 so put i,t that she would have
to refuse..What? Go and tell a girl-
young, beautiful, noble—your words
haunt me, Fleming—thut I am going
to take advantage of her position
and chain her for lifo to a man who
—of whom she knows nothing! I
can't do it—and I won't!"
Fleming lay back on the rough pil-
,'low of sun-dried soaweed and covered his eyes with his hands.
"I see—I understand. I will tell
her—ask her, Mannering. I will make
it plain to her that sho must—yes
must—consent. I will go at onco,
while—whilo I am able. Will you
give me a hand?" Mannering held
him up and gave him some ol the
precious brandy which they had saved.
"Thanks. Hnlf of that; only a drop
or two. Thank you, thank you, Mannering! I was not wrong in my estimation of you. It is good of you to
yield so soon. Some men—I fear most
men—would have stood out or refused altogether. They would have
thought of themselves and cared no-
..thing for her—for her reputation, her
"Don't try to make me out an angel or a plaster saint, Fleming,"
Mannering said, curtly and huskily.
"In fact, I've more than half a suspicion that you're wrong and tha*
I'm a fool for yielding to you. liut
•—we've been pals, and when you pull
out the Conscience and Principle
stops I'm done."
"No, I am right; and you are acting  like  a gentleman  and an honest
Jinun," Fleming gasped.
"Well!" Mannering sighed; then he
' looked at him hulf angrily. "But
doesn't it occur to vou that your
trust and confidence in me are rather
too thick? How do you know that I
nm  not  already married?"
Fleming smiled wanly.
"You would have told mo so the
very first moment you heard of my
proposal," he said, simply.
Mannering almost groaned.
I "There is no baulking you. Well, go
to her— Wait!" as Fleming got to
his feet slowly and feebly. "Tell her
—tell her—" Mannering stopped and
swore under his breath; then ho went
on,  hoarsely,- "tell her that    it    is
your   idee-  i_ofc  mino,   mindl    And   that
—that it is not to be a    real    marriage."
Fleming's blue eyes, set    ln    theli
'dark hollows, rested on his face patiently.
—"That we will go through the
form to please you und save her
from—from scandal and the rest of
it; but that I -I do not intend to
take advantage of It. No! I may
be a bad. lot, but I'm not so bad as
to snaro a young girl. Fleming, see
that she understands that this mar-
riuge is to h* one in name—form
only. Shu—she will understand.
Make her. Mind!"
A faint color flushed Fleming's
. death-like face.
"I will tell hor," ho said in a low
voice, "Mannering, you are behaving nobly—"
"Oh, rot!" Mannering broke in, as
if he could not restrain himself.
"Did you think I was a cur, a mean
hound? No one short of that would
act differently. Oh, poor girl, poor
girl! Here, I'll give you a hand part
of the way. And if you're wrong in
this business, may God forgive you,
"I echo your  prayer,  Mannering,"
he said, solemnly.
The two men went slowly towards
" the hut, Fleming leaning—one would
- write  heavily   but  that  the   word  is
grotes-quely inapplicable,  for  he  was
but a shadow of a man—on Manner-
ing's  arm;  then  Mannering  stopped,
and, without a word, turned, strode
to the beach and stood staring out
to sea.
Fleming knocked at tho door of
Nina's hut, though tho door waB
open, and slie called to him to come
in. She (was sitting on her bed mending a skirt, and she wont on with
her work—for there was much to do
and timo was valuable—as ho entered. She was very pale, but with
that ivory pallor which is not inconsistent with perfect health, and
her eyes were dull and heavy with
the tears that hail weakened though
they had relieved her. She signed to
tho rough chair which Mannering
had mado for her father, and Fleming sank Into it.
"Aro you—better?" ho asked.
She know that he meant was her
grief less poignant, nnd answered
"Yes," In a low voice and with a
stifled sigh.
"Do you think you arc strong
enough to liston to something I
want to . say to you?" he askod.
"Something very important, serious?"
"Oh, yes!" she replied; and she
stopped in her work and let her
hands lie motionless on lt. "Yes;
but you—you arc nut looking well,
Mr. Fleming. Is your cough worse—
are you feeling weaker?"
"Yes," replied Fleming, simply, "I
am weaker. I am very ill. Please
don't be sorry for mu! I am obliged

"Yes, He sees the necessity of defending you agaitisl thu suspicion,

eyes  fixed on the ground.
"You are thinking, reflecting?"
said Fleming, quietly, "1 would

Thero is no way of rendering that

world, safe and possible, than by

Thero was a pause; then shu looked
at him—n look which Fleming would
have remembered if he had lived to

"If—it n vessel were to come—if we

The color had left her face and
she wus now deathly pule.
Fleming met her eyes unflinchingly.

As he crept out of the hut Mannering, who was still standing guz-
ing al thu sea, heard him, but would
not turn his head.
"Well!" ho suid, hoarsely, his faco
still averted. Fleming took his arm
and leaned on it.
"I have spoken to her. She is na-
turally  much distressed—"
"1 should think so!" commented
Munnering, grimly.
—"But she is considering it. Poor
girl, she saw, with the quickness ol
her sex, the necessity for the stop.
Hut I think she would have been belter' pleased, less distressed, if you
had gone to her."
"Why?" demanded Mannering,
Fleming shook his head. "I do not
know. She seemed to think that you
were sacrificing yourself—at any rate
as much as she was herself."
"Good Lord!" ejaculated Mannering. He drew his hand across his
brow impatiently. "See here, Fleming, though I can seo your side of
the case—the gravity of the situation

decision which she had uot yet arrived at. If she had been given a

came to tell you. I wunt you to

went on constrainedly.

breath of relief.
"It is this," ho said, using almost
the exact words he had used to
Fleming. "The weather is fine, the
wind is set, and I think for some

raft with a sail. It could be provisioned for some time, and you and he

breathless earnestness while he Was
speaking,  then they dropped.
"Does—does Mr. Fleming consent?"
she asked in a low voice.   "Tho risk

right to let him tako it!"
"He consents." he said.
Sho raised her eyes again.
"And  you—you would  be left   here
alone?   Alone!" She tried to   repress
the shudder that shook her    at    the
"That is all right," he responded.
"And the provisions—you would be
left  without sufficient  food—"
"I shall not starve," ho said,
quietly. "There are plenty of birds,
other things. I will keep the gun.
Thero is the fishing— Oh, I shall do
well enough!"
"You—you wish it?" she nsked almost Inaudibly, her eyes hidden from
hlin by their long lashes.
"I don't know," he said almost
roughly, for his nerves were on edge,
his pity for her making a kind of
madness ln his brain. "I think anything would bo bettor thnn—the
thing ho wishes you to do. Do yoll
think I don't realize it? You know
nothing of mc. You would commit
yourself to the keeping of a man

desire and will, of one for whom you
do not care. Oh, 1 know how it. must
seem to you—how you must think of

For ono inopicnt she looked him
full in the eyes. In hers wus the question: But you, you, too, realize that
you would bo chained to one for
whom you do not care—do vou wish
her,  for your own sake,  to go?
llis eyes were averted and he did
not see the interrogation in hers; his
face wus glowering, frowning with
the strain on nerve and brain; and it
is little wonder that she read nn affirmative to her question.
"I will go," sho said almost ln-

. With his hands.
"I thought you'would," he suid
in a voice almost ns low as her own.
"I think you aro right."
He went to their hut, to which
Fleming had  crawled.
"She has decided," he said, curtly.
"She  will go."
Fleming had been sitting with his
head bowed in his hands. He let
them fall and looked steadily at
"Very well," he said, resignedly.
"But you must be iitiick, Mannering,"  he  ndded,  signilicuntly.
Mannering nodded, took up an axe
and went straight to the pine wood.
He worked like a man possessed, and
the trees fell before tho strokes of
his axe with a dull crash whicll
reached Nina where sho sat listening. Ho worked until nearly nightfall, thon ho remembered the sail
wanted mending. He took it up over
his shoulder and went to her. She
wus cooking tho evening meal and
scarcely turned her head when ho
stood at the door and said:
"Do you think you could mend the
sail, Miss Nina? I could manage it,
but I should be a long whilo about
it, and timo is short."
"Yes," she replied. "I have ono of
the ship's needles and can do lt.
Supper la nearly ready."
"All right," he said. "You and
Fleming go on; don't wait. I want
to work while there's light."
Ho went back to the wood, dragged one of the felled pines to the
bench, and got tho coils behind two
rocks, then strung a rope round tho
middle of tho log, and, using it as a
winch,  hauled down its fellows.
It wos dark when ho had got the
last of that, felling done, and he was
so giddy with exhaustion that he
had to sit down and rest. But Nina's sweet, clear voice called to him,
and he got up, and assuming a
cheerfulness—he even tried to hum-
went towards the men's hut in which
the three took their meals.
She had persuaded Fleming to take
a little food, but she had not touched hers; and as she put Mannering's
before him, she avoided looking at
him and went to the sail.
Ho was almost too tirod to eat,
but he forced himself to do so, his
eyes fixed on his plate. But presently he looked at her, roso and went
"Put this on your finger," ho said,
when he camo back, dropping a sail-
maker's thimble on her lap; "your
hand will be rubbed. It is fortunate
I remembered it."
"Thank you," Bhe said, simply. "
Fleming, from where ho lay beside
the fire which they made every night,
watched them with sad intentness.
"You forgot nothing," he said, after awhile. "At every turn I find
some instance of your care and
thoughtfulness. Is there nothing I
can do?"
"Yes; go to bed," retorted Mannering, cheerfully. "It's time we all
turned in. Miss Nina, you can't work
by this light."
"I can seo quito well," she said;
"'but if you wish it—good night!"
After sho had gone the two men
were silent for a few minutes, then
Mannering said:
"Hns she said anything? Is sho
frightened? On a raft in the open
sea! It is enough to alarm the bravest!"
"No, sho has said not one word."
replied  Fleming.
"1 don't think she knows what fear
means," said Mannering with something liko a groan. "And yet she
must realize the danger; she is so
quick, so intelligent—"
"She is the most intelligent and
acute girl I have ever known," said
Fleming. "Will you givo me your
hand, Mannering?"
He was so weak tbat Mannering
almost carried hiin to their hut.
Manuering would have lain awake
that night brooding over the situation, but the next day's Herculean
toil loomed before him and he forced
himself to sleep.
But Nina did not sleep. She went
over Fleming's proposal, Mannering's words, in endless repetition;
called up the expression of his face,
his quick, Bhort gestures. Rather
than marry him she was going to
leave him alone on this desolate
island. She did not think of her own
peril, on a raft on tho open sea
with a dying man, but of tho terrible solitude of the man who had
saved her life, who had worked liko
a slave for her comfort. Innumerable
little acts, amongst the big ones,
occurred to her, against which, stnali
as they were, his fight with the Lascar was diminished.
My brothers, it is our little deeds,
our smnll acts of consideration,
which weigh with women. It is the
wrapping of a cloak round them, the
finding of a chair, the proffered hand
in somo small difficulty by the way,
that counts with them. Heroic self-
sacrifice is all very well, but, if you
want to win a woman's heart, screen
her from the sun, keep her feet dry,
help her over the stile.
The girl lay and thought of the
thousand and one little acts of kindness and consideration which Mannering had performed on her behalf.
and she was so busy with the meni-
o-y of them that she had not time
left ln which to think of her own
coining peril.
And yet, how eager he must be to
avoid marrying her, seeing thnt h"
was willing to let her run tho risk
of setting sail on a raft for an unknown destination!
, Tho reflection stung her and made
her face burn.
Mannering was up with thu tluwu—
nnd really, it wus almost worth being shipwrecked to sec thu duwn of
day on that lovely island!—but early
as it wus, Nina hud risen und was
standing at the door of thu men s
"I have got your breakfast," she
said, simply. "How is Mr. Fleming?"
Tho pearly light fell like a benediction on her lovely face and was reflected in the calm of her violet eyes,
and something stirred in Mannering's
bosom; perhaps tile thought that
very soon ho would not see her in
any light.
"Ho vas asleep—at least,   I   think
so;  he is very weak,"  he said as hu
took the slice of bread and tho
of tea.
"I am afraid he is vory ill," she
said, sadly. "I will go to him. You
aro felling trees?"
"Yes," he said, trying to speak in
a casual way. "I have nearly finished. I hopo to have made the raft by
tojnight. Don't worry about the sail;
I can finish it when I come in."
"It will bo done before that," she
said, very slowly and quietly.
He went off and resumed his work,
Tho day grew hot and he was thirsty
and wns reluctantly thinking of going to tho spring for a drink of water whon Nina came towards him
with a mug of lime-water. Ho
straightened his back, and, with an
unconscious admiration of her grace,
watched her oDDroach.
-is there anv neca to *oj* m
hard?" she asked in a low voice, ner
eyes half raised with, on her side,
the woman's instinctive appreciation
ond unconscious worship of his
strength. "Have you cut down all
these—in so short a timo? It seems
"There'is no time to lose," he said,
as he set down the mug. "How is
Mr. Fleming getting on? I have a
hope that the voyage, the effort, will
do him good."
Shu looked beyond him gravely as
she answered: "He is much weaker I
am afraid. I have been sitting with
him mending the sail. It is finished.
Is there anything else 1 can do?"
She looked at the logs. "I tan strong
very strong. It is strange, but I have
grown stronger since wo have been
on tho island. It is the air, I suppose."
Munnering nodded. "And the exercise. You are on the move from
morning to night. I have watched
you. And the simple food. We eal
too much over there in England."
She looked round almost wistfully,
"it is a very beautiful island. 1 havo
never seen anything half so beautiful. Thu colors are so lovely. If
only there were more people!" she
sighed und swept the dark hair from
tho sunburnt brow. "Can 1 not help
you with these?"
"No," he said, almost curtly;
"they are too huavy. But you can
get the provisions logether—the tinned meats atul condensed milk wu
brought with us from tho wreck—into a box, and strap up tho rugs in n
tarpaulin. And mind and put'your
spare clothes in the middlo of the
bundle, so that they can't get wet."
The small things, my brothers!
She glanced up at him, as he slood,
his bare neck tanned by tho sun, his
brow knit with thought of her.
"Very well," she said, and, taking
up tho empty mug, left hint.
By nightfall Mannering had got
the last of the logs down to the
beach at the edge of tho high tide
mark, antl he worked on In thu moonlight until he had joined thu logs together and constructed his raft.
When he drugged himself up the
beach, Nina was standing at tho
door of the moil's hut.
"You are late," she said in a low
voice. "Supper has been wailing a
long time."
"I'm sorry," he said. "I wantctl
to finish the raft to-night, and I
havo done so. You will be able to
start to-morrow. Where is Mr.
Fleming?" he nsked, as ho entered
and saw that Fleming was not there.
"He was too weak to leave his
bed and come down here," she replied.
"I will go to him," he said.
"Not till you have had something
to eat," she said with a touch of
command in her low voice. "He has

Attempts to Impose Upon the Fanatic
and Credulous.
There have beeu many attempts
mnde in the history of the world hy
claimants to divinity to impose upou
the fanatic and credulous. Perhaps
the movement of this kind which attracted the greatest attention was that
Initiated by Joanna Southcott at tho
latter end of the eighteenth century.
This extraordinary woman was a do
mestlc servant ln the early part tlf
tier career; but, becoming probably
tho victim of religious mania, she announced herself us a prophetess, and
very soon, by dint of her extraordinary claims and writings, she obtain-
ed no fewer than 100,000 followers.
Joanna announced ln all serious
ness that she was about to become
the mother of the divine Shiloh and
named Oct. 19, 1814, as the date upon
wliich the event would tako place. As
showing the perfect faith her followers had in her claims, it may he mentioned that they subscribed for and
bought a silver cradle which cost
{1,000 and thnt $500 was spent in pap
spoons. As the date approached sho
shut herself up lu a house specially
bought for the interesting event, and
the fever of excitement.which reigned
may bo better imagined than described, for Joanna was over sixty years
of nge. Instead, however, of the divine
child appearing the venerable prophetess herself died on the 29th of October, or ten days after the date she had
herself fixed for the birth of the Messiah.
But Joanna Is by no means the only
example of a human being arrogating
divine powers to himself or herself.
When George II!. was king one
Richard Brothers, a master's mate ln
the royal navy, suddenly announced
that he was "prince of Hebrews and
ruler of the world," and that therefore King George should give up the
crown ln his favor. His claim met
with scant courtesy. He wns promptly Imprisoned as a criminal lunatic—
though he could not have been madder than the poor old king—and kept
In captivity for eleven years.
The navy seems to have been a
happy hunting ground for this class
of imposter at this period, for the
next to appear was "Zlon" Ward, an
ex-shoemaker, who had served In tho
navy. In 1S28 he had the Impudence
to announce himself as the -divine
Shiloh, who had been expected by
Joanna Southcott. People wero credulous then, as they aro now, and "Zlon"
got quite a respectable following and
died a wealthy man some years after.

Suffered for Ten Years, Cured
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Neuralgia is the king of torturers,
A tingling of the tender skin, a sharp
sudden stab from some angry nerve;
then piercing paroxysms of pain—
that's neuralgia. The cause of the
trouble Is disordered nerves due to
thin watery blood. The cure, is Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, ^ which make
new, rich red blood, and thus sooth
and strengthen tho disordered nerves
and cure neuralgia. Among the
thousands who have proven that Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills cure neuralgia Ib
Mrs. R. C. Johnson, of Simpson's Corner, N. S. Mrs. Johnson says: "Por
upwards of ten years I was a sufferer
from the awful pains of neuralgia.
Over-exertion or the least exposure to
a cold wave would set me nearly wild
with torture. I doctored with two
physicians, but they did not cure me.
I then tried several advertlsd medicines, but found uo benefit. The
trouble continued at intervals that
made life miserable, until six or eight
months ago when i relation of mine
brought me a box of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and urged me to try them.
I used this box and then got a half
dozen more, and by the time I had
used them all trace of the trouble had
disappeared, and as I have not since
had the slightest attack I feel safe
ln saying that the cure Is permanent." Mrs. Johnson Is ono of the
best known ladles In the section ln
which she resides, and Is a prominent
worker ln the Congregational church.
Naturally her family Und friends are
rejoicing over her cure, and Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have made many
warm friends In that section as a re
suit of their good work.
It Is because Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills make new, warm, blood
they have such great power to cure
disease. They ositlvely cure rheumatism, Bciatica, neuralgia, St. Vitus
dance, partial paralysis, kidney and
liver troubles, anaemia, and the ailments from which women alone suffer. The purchaser must be careful

Business Difficulties More Numerous,
But Liabilities Smaller.
Insolvency returns ln Canada for
the flrst nine months of the current
year as complied by Dun & Co. show
the smallest total liabilities of any
recent years, with the single exception
of 1903, although the number of failures ls slightly larger than In either of
the three years Immediately preceding.
Compared with last year there were
.959 defaults for'$7,105,495, against 916
failures for $8,988,140. Of these aggregates there were 208 manufacturing
failures for $2,269,992, against 225 for
$3,643,261; 739 trading failures with
liabilities of $4,781,320, compared with
665 last year, when the amount Involved reached $5,060,986; and 12 other
commercial failures for $54,183, against
20 for $283,893. Four banking disasters
occurred, with liabilities of $420,000,
but last year waa also satisfactory in
this respect; two suspensions Involving only $30,749. There ls no evidence
of unsound conditions in Canada, the
various provinces reporting about the
usual proportion of failures, and no

The Ideal Diet.
Do tho real needs of tho body demand such quantities of food each day
as the ordinary dietary standards call
for or a man from his acquired habits
has become accustomed to? A slight
excess of food beyond the true physiological requirement Is no doubt desirable as tending to prevent any
danger of undernutrition, but any
great excess must of necessity be detrimental. The ideal diet is that which
suffices to meet all the wants of the
body—I. e., the maintenance of body
weight, nitrogen equilibrium, health,
strength, vigor and endurance—and In
the period of adolescence to supply
material for the growth and development ot the tissues of the body. Anything beyond this quantity is just so
much of an excess which *hiust inevitably do harm if continued indefinitely and detract In some measure at
least from that high degree of efficiency which every enlightened man
desires to attain.

Penalties Have Often Been Imposed

Bachelors as candidates or probationers for marriage have formed the subject for legislation from the earliest
times. Penalties have ofteu been Imposed on male celibates In various
countries. Iu proportion as the Interests of the state were regarded as

severe. Iu ancient Sparta lt was considered a punishable crime not to marry or to marry too late In life. In
Athens, though not severely punished,
celibacy was discouraged ln early
At Rome marriage was fostered by
positive penalties Imposed on unmarried men and sometimes even on women as well as by discrimination In favor
of heads of families. In tho allotment
of the Campanlan lands by Julius Caesar portions were given only to tbe fathers of three or more children. Under

So far as Insects of the caves are
concerned the loss of sight which they
gradually undergo is sufficiently well
understood. The first step is a decrease ln the number of the facets
which make up the compound eyes,
wltb a corresponding dlmlulshinent of
the lenses and retinae. After four or
five generations the eyes become useless. It would be most Interesting to
breed these or other blind creatures of
the caves In the light, so as to find out
If they would get their sight back.
In all animals, Including man, lt ls
found thnt nature tries to compensate
for loss of vision by increasing tho
power of the sense of touch. Thus the

and splendid in appearance because
he Is the descendant of those who have
proudly beld and guarded "the privilege of death." Another writer tells a
story which illustrates this point. Two
entomologists, hunting at nlgbt, clambered over a gate with thoir swinging
lanterns and found themselves in a
field filled with sheep. The result of
their coming was panic and a furious
stampede. The sheep charged belter
skelter away from the lanterns and
huddled together at the far end of the
field. But there was a rum among
tbem, and as the flock scurried away
this creature stood firm, covering the
retreat. Then, steadily nnd majestically, the huge ram advanced with lowered head toward the mysterious lights
nnd pressed them back to the gate.

England, where the laborers employed
lu the haulage of coal continued to be

of them known ns "bulldases." This
consisted In working at times In the
morning without receiving any payment beyond a drink of ale. Tbls custom of exacting labor without pay ls
supposed to reprosent some ancient
service required from their tenants by
the monks of the abbey of Buildwas,

Gainful, Fatal
Kidney Disease
Calls for Immediate and Active Treatment
Kidney disease—marked by backache, pains in .the limbs, scanty, dark
colored urine', puf-lness about the
eyes, dr6pslcal swelling and gradual
loss of flesh—is always to be dreaded
both on account of' the suffering it
entails and because of Its fatality.
The kidnoys and liver share alike
the responsibility of filtering poisons
from the blood, and lt Is therefore
necessary to regulate both these organs lu order to effect a oure of kidney disease.
This fact accounts for the extraordinary success of Dr. Chase's Kld-
ney-Llvor Pills, which ls the only
treatment obtainable having a direct
and combined action on the liver and
For years evidence has been piling
up which goes to prove that Dr.
Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills have positively cured obstinate and complicated cases of kidney disease whleh
defied physicians and ordinary kidney medicines.
Nor ls this to be wondered at when
it ls remembered that Dr. Chase's
Kidnoy-Llvor Pills, are tho result of
the long and varied experience of the
groat American physician and author
—Dr. A. W. Chase.
Captain Wm. Smith, a veteran of
tho Crimean War, living at Revelstoke, B. C, writes:— "I, ca»..testify
to the benefit derived from Dr.Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills. Por years I was
a sufferer from kidney disease, and
could got no relief for It. - THer doctor
examined me and analysed iny urina
and told me that I had chronic dls
ease of the'Ttldneys. As his medicine
and told me that I had chronic dis-
Chase's Kldndy-Llver Pills and was
benefitted bo much that I kept on taking tbem until I -eon say that I am
perfectly cured. I told the doctor
I was cured, but he would not believo
mo until he examined my urine again.
After doing so he stated that I had no
trace of kidney disease left I have
recommended Sr. Chase's medicines
to many people."
Kidney disease ls not to be neglected. It ls far too serious to be allowed to develop. You can profit by
tbe experience of thousands of your
fellow-citizens and obtain prompt relief, as well as thorough and lasting
cure, by the use of Dr. Chase's Kldnoy Liver Pills. Ons pill a dose, 25

Who Gets the Most
Out of Life?
Not the wealthiest, not the most learned, nor the idler—but the
man who has good health and works for his living. This truth is
trite, but not trivial.
Every man should guard his health as his most valuable possession. Ihe more so because health is easier to retain than regain.
'■ Keep your grip on health by regular exercise, teasonable care
in eating and requisite sleep. Take Beecham's Pills occasionally,
to tone the stomach and keep the liver and bowels in good working
order.   And don't worry.
Observe these simple rules and you will agree that the one who
gets the most from life is

A very clever girl evolved a button scheme as Christmas presents
for her friends, and many exquisitely
embroidered button sets have been
the result. Such a scrap of material
is required for each that the c-xpeust
is small, and as the craze for all
things to match continues, it would
be well for those whose purses are
none too large to take the hint and
have a novelty that would otherwise
be expensive. Velvet buttons embroidered in metal threads arc chic,
and cloth done either in self-tone or
in carefully chosen contrasts are
equally smart; black on black showing up very well. For the coat effects so popular in dinner dresses,
which are usually of brocade or chine

Or lace net, hand-worked in pretty
small designs, would be prettier if
mounted in metal rims. The next
best thing is to crochet a fancy loop
around the button edge in metal
thread. Imagine a white brocade
button with a cluster of three forget-
me-nots at centre, one in silver, the
others in oxidized silver and steel
threads, and the crochet edge of silver; or else the same design in three
shades of gold; nothing could be
By crocheting an open fancy scallop in fine linen thread on the edge
of Irish crochet lace insertion, a collar and cuff set can be made for less
than three dollars. A two and one-
half inch insertion costs but $2.85 per
yard, and three-quarters of a -yard
gives cuffs seven inches long, and a
thirtcen-inch collar. The ends should
be finished like the edges, and the
