There was a fair attendance at the
entertainment iu Mason's Hall on
Tuesday eveniug. The chief item on
the program was a debate on the question "Resolved, that Govorumeut Control of the Liqnor Traffic would be
better than Prohibition." Rev. H. W.
Piercy and Mr. Grant took the affirmative sido nnd Messrs. II H. Stevens and
Fred Phillips supported tho Prohibition
side. Capt. Saeret, Messrs. Little and
Onmmings acted as judges. The debate
was spirited throughout and the judges
decided that the Government Control
side won by oue poiut. Other
items on the program were recitations
by Rev. Mr. Piercy and Mr. Joe
Mathers, aud phonograph selections
furnished by Mr. Balfour It was the
opinion of the meeting that some steps
should be taken to provide entertainments for yonug men and women during the winter aud that an uudeuomina
tiounl olub or society should bo organised for that purpose. Mason's Hall, it
is felt, should not be kept closed all
week. A committee consisting of Capt.
Saeret, Mrs. Elkins, Mr. Sparling, Mrs.

her face, and with the words almost
choking hor throat, "Then tell bim
what I have snld to you and perhaps
lie will not feel so"—
"I ennnot do tbnt cither, Lady Mnry.
When I mentioned your name the other
day, be snld be would curso mo If I ever spoke lt ngaln In bis bearing."
"Is it so bnd ns tbnt?" Then, meditatively: "And nt bis trial he did not tell
the reason for tbo killing? Would not
compromise me, who had served him
so 111, even to save bis own life? Noble,
noble!" And ber lips went together as
she rose to her feet. No tears uow;
nothing but glowing, determined womanhood.
"Then I will go to blm wherever he
may bo. He shall forgive me, uo matter wbnt my fault."
Soon after this wo wore on our way
to London at a brisk gnllop.
Wo were all very silent, but at one
timo Mary spoke up from the midst of
tt reverie: "During the moment when I
thought Mnster Brandon had been executed—when you said lt was too late—
ii seemed tnat I was born ngaln ana an
mude over; that I was changed ln the
very texture of my nature by tbe
shock, as tbey say the grain of tbe Iron
cannon ls sometimes changed by too
violent an explosion." And this proved
to be true in some respects.
We rode on rapidly and did not stop
ln London except to give tbe horses
After crossing the bridge Mary said,
half to Jane and hnlf to herself, "I will
never marry the French king—never."
Mary wus but a girl pitted against a
body of brutal men, two of them rulers
of the two greatest nations ou earth-
rather heavy odds for one woman.
Wo rode down to Grecuwlcb and entered the pulaco without exciting comment, as the princess wus ln the habit
of coming and going at will.
The king and queen nnd most of the
courtiers were ln London at Bridewell
House and Baynurd's castle, where
Henry was vigorously pushing the
lonn of 500,000 crowns for Mnry's dower, tbo only business of state in which
at that time be took any netlvo Interest. Subsequently, ns you know, be be-
enme Interested in the divorce laws
and the various methods whereby a
mnn, especially n king, might rid himself of n distasteful wife, and after he
saw the truth in Anne Boleyn's eyes he
adopted a combined policy of church
and state craft that has brought ns a
deal of senseless trouble ever since and
Is like to keep lt up.
As to Mary's dower, Henry Was to
pny Louis only 400,000 crowns, but he
mnde the marriage nn excuse for an
extra 100,000 to be devoted to bis own
prlvnte use.
When we arrived nt the palace the
girls went to their apartments and I
to mine, whero I found Brandon rending. There wns only one window to
our common room—n dormer window
set Into tho roof and reached by a little passage ns broad as tbe window Itself and perhaps a yard and a half
long. In tbe alcove thus formed was
a bench nlong tbo wnll, cushioned by
Brandon's great campaign cloak. In
this window we often sat nnd rend, and
here was Brandon with his book. I bnd
intended to tell blm the girls were coming, for when Mnry asked me lf I
thought lie would come to her at the
palace, and when 1 hnd ngaln said no,
Bho reiterated ber Intention of going
to him nt once; but my courago fnlled
mo and I did not speak of It.
I knew that Mary ought not to come
to our room, and tbnt lf news of it
should reach tlio king's curs there
would be more and worse troublo than
ever, and ns usual Brnndon would pny
the penalty for llll. Then again, lf lt
were discovered lt might seriously compromise both Mnry nnd Jnne, as the
world ls full of peoplo who would rather sny and believe an evil thing of another than to Bay tbelr prayers or to
believo the holy creed.
I had said ns much to the Lndy Mary
when hIic expressed her determination
to go to Brandon. She hnd been In the
wrong bo much of Into that she wus
bumbled, and I was brave enough to
Buy Whatever I felt, but Bhe snld she
bud thought It all over, and ns every
ono was away from Greenwich lt
would not bo found out if doue secretly.
She told Jnno sho need not go; thnt
she, Mnry, did not want to tako auy
risk of compromising ber. '
Jane would have gone, though, hnd
she known that all her fair name would
go wilh lier. She was right, you see,
when she told me while riding over to
Windsor thnt should Mary's love blossom Into a full blown passion Bbe
would wreck everything and everybody, Including herself perhaps, to at-
tain the object of bo great a desire.
It looked now ns If sbo wero on the
highroad to thnt end. Nothing short
of chains nnd fetters could have kept
lier from going lo Brandon thnt evening. There was nn Inherent force nbou!
her that wus Irresistible nud swept
everything before lt.
In our garret alio wns to meet another will, stronger nnd Infinitely better
controlled than her own, and 1 did not
know huw lt would nil turn out.
HAD not been Inngln the room
when a knock nt tbo door announced the girls. I admitted
them, nnd Mnry walked to
tbo middle of the floor. It was JubI
growing dark, nnd tbe room wsb quite
dim, saye at tho Window where Bran
don sat rending. (Jo'cls, those were exciting moments! My heart beat like a
woman's. Brandon saw the girls when
they eutered, but never bo much as
looked up from his book. Y'ou must remember he bad a great grievance. June
and I had remained near tbe door, and
poor Mary was a pitiable princess,
standing there so full of doubt ln the
middle of tbe room. After a moment
she stepped townrd the window nnd,
with quick coming breath, stopped at
the threshold of the little passage.
"Master Brandon, I hnve come, not to
make excuses, for nothing can excuse
me, but to tell you how lt all happened
—by trusting to another."
Brandon arose and, marking the
place ln hlB book with his finger, followed Mary, who bad stepped backward Into the room.
"Your highness la very gracious and
kind thuB to honor me, but as our ways
will hereafter He ob fur apart as the
world ls broad, I tblnk lt would hnvo
been far hotter had you refrained from
so Imprudent a visit, especially ns anything one bo exalted as yourself may

"Oh, don't, I pray you! Let mc'tell
you, and lt mny make a difference. It
must pain you, I know, to think of me
ns you do, aftor—after—you know; after what has passed between us."
"Yes, that only makes It all the harder. If you could give your kisses"—and
she blushed red as blood—"to one for
whom you care so little that you could
leave him to die like * dog, when a
.word from you would have saved him,
what reason have I to suppose they are
not for every man?"
This gave Mary an opening of which
she was quick enough to take advantage, for Brandon was ln tbe wrong.
"You know thnt ls not true. You nre
not honest with me nor with yourself,
and that is not llko you. You know tbat
no other man over had, or could have,
any favor from me, even the slightest.
Wantonness Ib not among my thousand
faults. It Is not that which angers
you. You are sure enough of me iu that
respect. In truth, I had almost come
to believe you were too sure, that I had
grown cheap ln your eyes, and you did
not care so much as I thought and
hoped for wbnt I had to give, for after
that day you came not near me at all.
I know lt was the part of wisdom and
prudence that you should remain away,
but had you cared as much as I your
prudence would not have held you."
Sbe hung her head a moment In silence, then, looking at bim, almost
ready for tears, continued: "A mnn bas
no right to speak ln that way of a woman whose little favors be bas taken,
and make her regret that she has given
a gift only that it may recoil upon her.
'Little,' did I sny? Sir, do you know
wbnt that—flrst—kiss was to me? Had
I possessed all the crowns of all the
earth I would have given them to you
as willingly. Now you kuow the value
I placed on It, however worthless it
was to you. Yet 1 was a cheerful giver
of that gift, was I not? And can you
find it in your heart to make of it a
shame to me—that of which 1 was so
She stood there, with bead Inclined a
little to one side, looking at him inquiringly as lf awaiting an answer. He
did uot speak, but looked steadily at
his book. I felt, however, that be was
changing, aud I was sure ber beauty,
never more exquisite than ln Its present humility, would yet atone for even
so great a fault as hers, tlrr, look beautiful and receive remission! Such a
womau as Mary carries her Indulgence
ln her face.
I now began to realize for tbe first
time the wondrous power of this girl,
and ceased to marvel tbat sbe had always been able to turn even tbe king,
tbe most violent, stubborn man on
earth, to Tier own wishes. Her manner
made her words eloquent, and already,
with true feminine tactics, she had put
Brandon ln the wrong ln everything
because he was wrong ln part
Then she quickly went over whnt she
had said to me. She told of ber great
dread lest the king should learn of tho
visit to Grouche's and Its fatal consequences, knowing full well lt would
render Henry Impervious to her Influence and precipitate the French marriage. She told him of how she was
going to the king the day after the arrest to ask his release, and of tbe meeting with Buckingham, and his promise.
Still Brandon said nothing and stood
as lf politely walUng for her to withdraw.
Sbe remained silent a littlo time,
waiting for bim to speak, wben tears,
partly of vexation, I think, moistened
her eyes.
"Tell mo at least," sbe said, "that
you know I speak the truth. I have always believed ln you, and now I ask
for your faith. 1 would not He to you
in the faintest shading of a thought—
not for heaven Itself—uot even for your
love and forgiveness, much as they are
to me, and I want to know thnt you

of what your love ls to me, for although by remaining away you mado
mo fear I bad beeu too lavish wltb my
favors—that ls every woman's fear—I
knew In my heart you loved me; tbat
you could not bave douo and said wbnt
you did otherwise. Now you see what
faith I have ln you, and you a man,
whom a woman's instinct prompts to
doubt. How does it comparo wltb your
faith in me, a woman, whom all the ln-
stlncts of a manly nature should dispose to trust? It seems to be an unwritten lnw tbat a man may Ho to a
woman concerning tbe most Important
thing ln life to ber and be proud of lt,
but you see even now I bave all faith
ln your love for me, else I surely
should not be hero. You seo I trust even
your unspoken word, when It might,
without much blame to you, bo a spoken He; yet you do not trust me, who
bnve no world-given rlgbt to speak
falsely about such things, and when
that which I now do ls full of shame

I was being sold like n wretched slave
to that old satyr, to be gloated over
and feasted upon. No man can know
the horror of that thought to n woman
—to any woman, good or bad. To have
one'B beauty turn to curse her and
make her desirable only—only ns well
fed cattle are prized. No matter how
great the manifestation of such so
called love, lt all the more repels a
woman and adds to her loathing day
by day. Then there was something
worse than all"—she was almost weeping now—"I might bave been able to
bear the thought even of that hideous
marriage—others have lived through
tho like—but—but after—that—that
day—when you—It seemed that your
touch was a spark dropped Into a heart

there awaiting It all these years. In
that one moment the flame grew so intense I could not withstand lt My
throat ached; I could scarcely breathe,
and it seemed that my. heart would
burst." Here the tears gushed forth as
she took a step toward him wltb outstretched arms and said between sobs:
"I wanted you, you, for my husband—
for my husband, and I could not bear
the torturing thought of losing you or
enduring any other man. I could not
give you up after that—it was all too
late, too late; lt had gone too far. I
was lost lost!"

"Let us step out Into the passageway,
Edwin," said Jane, and we did. There
were times when Jane seemed to be Inspired.
When we went back Into the room,
Mary and Brandon were sitting ln the
window-way on his grent cloak.   Tbey
rose and came to us, holding each other's hands, and Mary asked, looking up
to blm:
"Shall we tell them?"
"As you like, my lady."
Mary  was  willing,  and  looked for
Brandon to speak, so be said,  "This

gave me ber hand, for her love was so
great within her that lt overflowed
upon every one. She, however, always
bad a plenitude of love for Jane, and,
though she might scold her and apparently misuse her, Jane was as dear as
a sister and was always sure of her
steadfast, tried and lasting affection.

"Very well, Mme. Destiny." Then,

A Few Uon'ls That It Would ■• Well
to Boar In Mind.
An afternoon call must be a short
and yet not a hurried one. Don't enter the house saying that you have not
a minute and don't leave It declaring
that you must hurry on to another
friend or you give an Idea that your
visit has been paid grudgingly.
Dou't monopolize the conversation.
Your hostess likes to retell her own
news, to air ber own grievances, to discuss mutual friends, from ber own
point of view. You may bo the most
amusing person present, but your very
brilliancy gives others the desire to
shine also, and courtesy demands that
you should give them their opportunity,
says an exchange.
Above all, don't talk of yourself. "I"
ls a letter of the alphabet to be omitted
as much as possible. Who doea not
know the bore wbo tells you of his
health, his family, his plans, till you
sigh of unutterable relief when he at
length takes his departure?
There ls a military offense called
"forcing the sentry." Don't "force"
your friend's butler or maid when you
are told, "Not at home." Dou't say,
"Oh, I am sure she Is at home to mel"
Tbe unfortunate hostess may be Indisposed, busy, worried or have Important
letters to write; so respect her orders
to ber sentry and content yourself with
leaving your card.
Don't utter ln an audible aside to
your companion, "Thank heaven, they
are out!" A whisper ls fraught with
danger and may possibly be retailed
from one person to another until it
reaches tbe mistress of tbe house.

Battle of the Thame*.
The battle of the Thames was fought
ln October, 1813. Fifty-nine years ago
there stood on the roadside on tho
Longswoods road a little log school-
house; a few rods away stood a wayside tavern called the Tecumseh house,
marked by a swinging sign with the
rude painting of an Indian on lt The
spot te situated about two miles as the
crow files from Thameavllle, that Is, the

west to London, Hamilton, and other
places east The Thameavllle of to-day

the Grand Trunk which had not at that
time been built or apparently been

within a few feet of where Tecumseh
was killed. The writer ln 1846 taught
Young Canada In that little schoolhouse.
Right there was. the Battle of the
Thames fought Qen. Proctor, with a
few regulars and a body of Indians under Teoumseh had been retreating bofore th* large forces of Americans under Gen. Harrison, until thla spot was
reaohed, when Tecumseh, lt ls said,
i positively refused to retreat further,
but resolved to make a stand In defence
ot the Indian settlement of Moravian-
town, about a mile further up the i_,vor.
Death of Tecumaeh.
The spot was well chosen for defence. The surrounding country was
covered with primevlal forest trees, the
only approach to It being the road.
There was a sandy ridge running westward and on tho side next the road a
black ash swale. Behind this ridge
Tecumseh and his men had erected a
rude breast works ot logs. Proctor had
one field piece pointing down the
road; but the story goes ln the locality
that he had retreated before the Americans had arrived, and not a shot was
fired.    As the Kentucklans    advanced

The late Mr. Cornwall who had a j
small saw and grist mill at Thameavllle when the writer was teaching In
the neighborhood said he was a small <
boy at the time of the battle, and the ,
ovening before the battle, as ho wus
ln the woods looking after the cows,
he came right on Tecumseh's camp.
The Indians had killed a cow and wore
cooking steaks for supper. He Bald
Teoumseh was a line tall man, wearing
an officer's sash, and had around his
neck a ribbon on which was suspended
• large sliver medal. Mr. Cornwall
aaid Teoumseh could speak English
and spoke kindly to him, patting him
on the bead. Many have wondered that
while monuments have been erected to
tbe memory of others, perhaps less deserving, this great Indian chief has

William C. Van Home, one of the
world's great railroad men, began his
caroor as a telegraph operator ln Chicago, says Success. He rapidly rose to
high places ln railroading, and ln tho
early M's he had attained such a reputation In the business that Lord Strathcona, the financier of the project to construct the Canadian Paolflo Railway,
selected the young American aa general
manager and chief of the building operations. He was so successful ln this
work and rendered such Important service to the Dominion of Canada In pushing the railroad across her vast expanse
to the Pacific Ocean that ln 1896 Queen
Viotoria knighted him. Pre-eminently
endowed with common sense and humor, he Is not the man to tako his

W. G. Bartleman Could get no Relief
till he tried the Great Canadian
Kidney Remedy.
Wapella, Assa., N. W. T., Aug. 7.-—
(Special).—This thriving town furnishes one of the most remarkable
cures of Kidney Disease that has ever
been reported on the prairies. Mr.
Wm. G. Bartleman. a well-known
farmer, ls the man cured and he
makes the following statement:—
"I had Kldnoy Trouble and It developed Into Diabetes. I went to the
doctor but his treatment was of no
use whatever to mo. I began to take
Dodd's Kidney Pills ln December,
1902. I took them all wlntor and
summer while I was unablo to work
my farm. I took twolvo boxes in all
and In August I was ablo to work.
"Now I am quite strong. I worked
all winter without pains ln my back
or any part of my body. Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me."
If the Kidney Disease le of long
standing it may tnke time to cure lt
But Dodd's Kidney Pills will do it
If there ls that ln your nature which
demands the best and will take nothing less, and you do not demoralize
this standard by tho habit of de-
teoriatlon in everything you do, you
will achieve distinction ln some line
if you have tho persistence and do-
termination to follow your ideal.
But if you are satisfied with the
cheap and shoddy, the botched and
slovenly, if you are not particular
about the quality in your work, or ln
your environment, or ln your personal habits, then you must expect to
take second place, to fail back Into
the rear of the procession.
People who have accomplished work
worth while havo had a very high
sense of the way to do things.
They have not been content with med-
ocnty. They have not confined themselves to the beaten tracks; they
havo never been satisfied to do things
Just as others do them, but always a
little better. They always pushed
things that came to their hands a
littlo higher up, a little farther on.
It is this little higher up, little farther
on, that counts In the quality of life's
work. It is the constant effor to be
flrst class in everything one attempts
that conquers the heights of excellence.

I rode there .often when I was young,
With my grist on the horse before,
And  talked with Nelly,    the    miller's
As I waited my turn at the door;
And while she    tossed    her    rlngleta
And flirted and chatted so free,
The wheel might stop or   the    wheel

It was all the same to me.
'Tts twenty years since last I stood
Qn the spot where I stand to-day,
And   Nelly is  wed, and the  miiler Is

But  both,  till  we  fall  Into  ruin  and
To our fortune of toil are bound;
And tho man goes, and    the    stream
And the wheel movea slowly round.

English was in the public eye aa physician, poot, dramatist, novelist, lawyer and politician, but his celebrity
while ln the flesh rested and his posthumous fame rests almost aolely on bis

song dropped out of memory, but Interest In lt was revived by Its use in
Du Maurle_*s novel, "Trilby." In later
years tho mention of "Ben Bolt" to Its

Lord Roeebery'a Splendid Tribute to
the Late Head Maatsr of Eton.
One of the notable events ln English
educational life of late has been the retirement of Dr. Warre from the head-
mastership of Eton, which ho held for
twenty-one years. Old Etonians the
world over have embraced tho opportunity of contributing to a testimonial
ln his honor, which was Inaugurated a
little while ago under the presidency
of the Earl of Rosebery. On that occasion, Lord Rosebery said: "His (Dr.
Worre's) services to Eton and his connection with Eton have ranged over a
great space of time. It Ib fifty-one
years, I think, since he gained the Newcastle, which ought to be, though I am
afraid It ls not, the blue ribbon of an
Eton career, and lt ls forty-five years
since ho Joined the educational staff of
Eton aa an assistant master. It ls
rather painful to me, personally, to remember that he was an assistant master when I went to Eton, but as far as
I can see, he looks aa young and as
vigorous now as he did then. It la but
21 years ago that he was raised to
one of. the supreme positions In Oreat
Britain, the headmastershlp of Eton. I
•ay one of the supreme positions because lt ls, I know, considered that a
Secretaryship of State la a very grave

For Months Mrs. Myles Lay a Helpless   Sufferer*—
Attributes Restoration to
Mrs. John Myles, senior, of South
Woodslee, Essex County, Ont, Is well
known throughout the surrounding
country because of her work among
the slajk and suffering, and it was on
account of over-exertion ln this regard
that hef health broke down, and she
lay weak and helpless, a victim ot
nervous prostration. Doctors . could
not help her, and she resolved to try
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. As a result
she has been thoroughly restored, and
by recommending this treatment to
others has been the means of bringing back health and happiness to-
many a weakened and discouraged
sufferer from diseases of the nerves.
Mrg. Myles writes::—"When I began the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food I was confined to my bed wltb
what tho doctors said was nervous
prestation. My stomach was very
weak, and I could not sleep at all for
any length of time. Nervous chilli,
and trembling would come over mo
at times and I seemed to be getting
weaker and weaker all the time.
There were also pains on top of the
head which caused me much suffering
and anxiety.
''After using half a dozen boxes of
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food I began to
gain in weight and feel Stronger.
Since then I have been gradually restored to health, and ln looking baok
can say that the improvement has
been something wonderful. I used ln
all forty boxes of this preparation,
and feel lt a duty, as well as a privilege, to recommend lt to all who are
suffering from nervous disorders.
Several persons to whom I have de-
eorlbed my case have used lt and

my present good health, lf not life Itself, to Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.

The best medicine ln the world to
ward off summer complaints ls Baby's
Own Tablets, and lt is the best medicine to cure them lf they attack little
ones unexpectedly. At the first sign

the most satisfactory medicine I ever
tried." ThlB Is the experience of all

Bishop Henry C. Potter ot New

illustrating how the barbaric Instincts
persevere in holding their place ln the
human heart, even though encouraged. "A professor in an eminent
American university thought It wise
to bring up his children without giving them any religious Instruction and
acquaintance with the Bible until
they should reach the age of understanding. One of these children, a
boy, of course, went up to the family
garret to amuse himself one rainy
day. Out of the rookery there he dug
up an extremely dusty and delapida-
ted volume and devoured a portion of
Its contents with the greatest possible
interest and relish. "After a time he
came running to his mother bubbling
over with delight and exclaimed:
'Oh, mummy, I found a great book up
ln the attic. It's chock full of fighting. I read all about a fellow called
Moses that punched the heads of the
Malakltes, and there's lots more
scrapping ln It.' "What's the name
of the book, Bobby?' his mother Inquired. " T think it's called the Holly
Blbbel,' answered Bobby."

According to the Dry Goods Re
porter, as the season advances the
brims for evening are a trifle broader.
Brims are wider for evening wear,
and those hats which are designed
for dressy occasions ail show a tendency toward the picture effect.
Ostrich plumes and sweeping aigrettes altogether wilh the bird of paradise are the royal features.
All sorts of wings and large birds
still continue in high favor for street
wear and even many of the dressiest
hats show such trimming.
The all-feather hat is especially a
popular model at the present time. It
represents one of the leading ideas
and some of the most popular shapes
are the tricorn and the long front
pointed turban.
Some of the prettiest feather hats
art those which are made on the all
around turban style. These show
brown mercury wings on either side.
They are seen in all colors.
One of the prettiest antl daintiest
ideas in the new season's millinery is
the rucking of maline whicll trims
many of the jhats. This ruching
varies in size according to the width
of the crown of the hat and are usually made in box plaits.
One style shown trims a dark blue
beaver bat. The crown is surrounded
with a crown of dark niching of maline. The bandeau is covered with a
ruchine of maline. The only other
trimming is a pale blue wing on the
These niching? arc particularly
beautiful in pale blue and pink and
white maline and some of the very
newest evening hats show these riich-
ings. There is only one objection lo
this maline. and that is, it is perishable, but if tlie milliner can succeed
in selling it, it means a good business, as the patrons bring it back
frequently to have it refreshed.
