From noon until the shadow of
night gathered, Neva sat in the depot
and waited, and as the hours dragged on her (ace grew whiter and
whiter. This the policeman noted
with deep concern as he glanced in at
the window every now and then as
he paced up and down the platform.
At last he could endure it no longer, and calling the woman to him
who had charge ol the ladies' waiting
room, he explained the situation in a
few words.
"Poor child!" exclaimed the woman, pityingly. "I will have a littlo
talk with her, and make her understand the situation of aflairs, if 1
So saying, she turned and approached "Neva, taking a seat by her
"You are having a very long wait,
miss," she said, gently.
The girl turned her great, dark eyes
upon her, and her lips quivered. It
was like the dew of heaven to a
thirsty, withering rose to" hear one
kindly voice speaking to her in a
land of strangeis.
"I was expecting my husband to
meet me here, and somehow 1 have
missed him," she repeated, piteous-
ly, "and I don't know what to do."
The woman took her little cold
hand  in hers.
"The same thing happens to many
and many a young girl," she said, in
a low voice. "I see them every day,
waiting and waiting, until my heart
bleeds with pity for the poor, pretty
young things—for the one for whom
they watch and wait never comes. It
has been said many a time, that the
only way many a man can shake od
a love that has become irksome to
him is to bring the girl to tho city
of New York and there desert her.
And, bless yoUi my poor dear! it is
done every hour'in the day, and no
one sees more of it than I. I do not
want to seem unkind, but 1 must
tell you the truth: The young man
will never come for you; you may
as well try to realize that. He has
intentionally deserted you—left you to
your fate. My advice to you, miss,
is to lose no time getting back to
your home."
Bhe never forgot the look that
swept over tho girl's face as the full
force of the words she was listening
to dawned upon her.
"Of course, I am not say anything
about your staying here as long as
you like to remain, but I can assure you that you might wait many
a day, and many a long week, or a
year,  and it would be the same."
"I must wait!" cried Neva, wringing her white hands. "If all men in
the world were false, I should still
believe hiin true," she sobbed.
The woman rose to her feet, and,
with a few gentle words, left her,
thinking that the greatest kindness
she could do her.
The long hours of the evening slowly came and as slowly went, and
midnight tolled from an adjoining
Again the woman approached her.
"They will not like to have you
remain here much longer," she said,
laying a kindly, toil-hardened hnnd
on the girl's arm. "I livo only
around tho corner; will you come
home with me? I do not like to
leave you here alone, and I must go.
I would feel easier in my heart to
have you como with me, and to-morrow I would put you on tho train
which would take you back to your
own good mother, if you have one.
I lost a daughter ol about your age
not long since," she went on, softly,
"and 1 lovo all young girls for her
dear sake. Something in tho very air
around us seems whispering, 'Mother,
take her home with you—take her
home with you.' My home is a very
humble one, child, but you're welcome to Its shelter until to-morrow.
You see, he has not come. He knows
you must be here, but be docs not
care what becomes of you. You must
learn to bear what many a young
girl bas had to faco before you, and
live it down. The world will be cold
and gray for a littlo while for you,
but you are young, and the young can
live and learn to forget."
She took the girl's cold, unresisting hand in hers and led her from
the waiting-room.
It was a very humble home to
which the woman led her—a few little rooms up under the eaves—but
they were scrupulously tidy. She
tried to draw from the girl's lips h/cr
history, as she pourod a cup of good,
warm, fragrant tea for her, remembering that to her certain knowledge
do food had passed her chilled lips
since noon, though she felt sure she
had money in her purse.
But Neva was not communicative;
she would say nothing of herself, onlv
that she must go back to the depot
as soon as the morrow dawned, and
.Wait,   end   wait   until   ha. for   mk""
She wattne'd came"for her*.
But it was many a morrow ere she
left that room. When the day dawned a raging fever held her in its
grasp, and it was a fortnight ere
she could be removed to an adjacent
hospital, where for two long and
weary months she hovered between
life and death.
But she was young, and youth gains
many a battie over grim death; and
at the end of the second month,
slowly, by degrees, consciousness returned to her. The nurses were very
kind to the poor, pretty, hapless
young creature; they had heard her
story from the waiting-woman of
the depot, who called every day to
look at the patient, and hers was the
first face Neva saw as she returned
to consciousness.
She attempted to rise from her
couch, exclaiming:
"I must hasten back to the depot.
He must be there by this time. Perhaps he has been waiting all the
long night through since we came
Slowly they informed her where she
was; that long months had passed
since that never-to-be-forgotten night
when she had allowed the good woman at the depot to take her to her
home; that her husband had never
come; that the summer, with its
sweet flowers and balmy breezes, was
gone, and that the sobbing noise she
heard outside was the autumn wind
whistling among the maples nnd
sending the red and gold withered
leaves in little showers tapping
against the window-panes, like shivering, wandering souls begging for
admittance again into the brightness
and cheer of this world.
Another fortnight, and the girl
was able to leave the place. She
wept when she left her kind attendants, but she would not tell them
who she was nor whence she came.
When they asked her if she were
going home,,again, she, said, "Yes,"
and they felt greatly relieved to
learn that.
Two days and two nights of incessant travel, and once more the hills
and valleys of Louisiana hove in
sight. It was sundown when she
reached the station from which she
had started so joyously three short
months before. Three months! it
seemed like a life-time. How much
had taken place since then! She had
been wedded and deserted. When
Neva hud left that little village so
short a time ago, she was a blooming, happy, rosy-checked, bright-eyed
girl. Few would have recognized her
in the pale, emaciated little creature
that crept from the train, drawing
her long cloak and veil closely about
her, and hurried down the long, dusty
road. She had walked long miles ere
she saw a wagon in which she might
A farmer and his wife beheld tho
girl toiling along by the road-side;
they at once invited her to ride, if
she was going their way. This Neva
gladly consented to do. She had not
realized, until she took that long
journey, how weak she was; twice or
thrice she had almost fainted by the
They passed within half a mile ol
her home, and here Neva left them.
They were going on to the village
beyond. How her heart leaped as
she made her way across lots toward
the little red farm-house whose outline she could dimly see over the
tops of the trees.
Tho grass in the meadow was long
and rank, and the clovcr-liclds needed
mowing. Sho suw about her strange
neglect; the fence was down at one
end of the lot, and tho cows had
strayed in and wore trampling, down
the corn.
A great chill crept over her heart.
Had anything happened to her dear
old fnther or her mother? The very
thought made her almost swoon with
She knew that it was late, that it
must be nearly mid-night. They always retired at sundown on tho
farm. Why was that candle burning
in her mother's window? Was there
anything the matter?
With a heart that beat violently,
despite all her eflorts to control it,
the girl crept noiselessly up to tho
latticed window, drew back tho
tangled vines to which a few dead
roses clung, and peered breathlessly
within. Nothing was changed. Sho
saw, in one quick glance, the table |
with the red stamped damask cloth
upon it; the Holy Biblo in the centre, with the stack of graduated
books upon it; the china vases on the
mantel, filled with long grasses, and
the old eight-day clock, with the
painted "Bo-peep and tho Shepherdess" sitting under tho tree, midway
between the vases; the high-post bed,
with the snow-white |bed valanco
drawn closely about it.
Then, as her dim eyes became more
accustomed to tho   darkness beyond
the  circle  of    light  formed  by     the i
ravs Qf tb_\ candle, she sa v that trior- i
was som* ,— .«.*__ on xne 'Hed: It
was her i. tithcr, and in the high-
backed rocKer sat her father, his
face buried in his hands. Suddenly
the clock on the mantel pealed the
half hour; it seemed to startle tho
woman on the lied.
"What is the hour? Duncan, ars
you there?" she culled, feebly.
"Ves, Marthy," returned the farmer, huskily. "Don't be afooied; I'm
sittin' alongside ye. D'ye want mo
to take hold o' yer hand?"
"Oh, Duncan," moaned the sufferer,
"I can not see you, my eyes are so
blinded by the tears that have fallen
from them."
"Hush-h, Marthyl" muttered tho
"I shall not be a burden on you
much longer, Duncan," she wailed.
"You've put up with so much of late,
"I've never complained, 'hev I
Marthy?" he replied, hastily. "I
don't like to hear ye talk like that,
wife; it hurts me i' the heart, like."
"Is it a nice night, Duncan?" sho
whispered, eagerly. "Tell me, and
then you shall know why I ask."
"It is a lovely moonlit night,
Marthy," answered the farmer, in a
low voice. "The moon is at the full.
It's jest sich a night as it was when
•-when,—she  left US.'.'

Where  the   Little  Insect  Is  Busiest—
Stories From  Britain.
The average countryman would laugh
at you lf you were to tall him that you
had seen the wasps this summer playing the part of the exemplary boo and
gathering honey from the flowers In the
garden. But the countryman would be
wrong and you would bo right, for of
late, for some mysterious reason, the
wasps have been busy among the tall
flaming spikes of the red hot pokers
(Trltoma uvarla), whose blooms ar*
especially fine this August.
What the bees think of lt one cannot
say, but they are not to be seen mingling with the wasps. Tha latter, when
they feel inclined toward honey, usually make an attack upon the nearest
beehive, and ver> often come oft second best, unless they attack ln force.
But now that the wasp has shown an
inclination to gather honey flrst hand
from flowers, surely the scientist can
step ln and teach It to store It for the
needs of man ln the comb, which lt
can already make as perfectly as the
bee, though of a different material.
The chief difficulty, perhaps, would ba
to prevent the wasp, like the ohlld ln
the strawberry bed, from eating all he
gathers on the spot.—Pall Mall Gazette.
Keeping Friends With Bees.
A contributor mentions a singular
custom adhered to by many country
people who keep bees. It Is that of
telling the bees whenever anything unusual Is about to take place or has taken place, such as a death, birth or marriage. It ls believed that If this were
not done the bees would leave the hive
or some misfortune would befall tho
In illustration the correspondent says
that his brother had a good many hives,
and some years ago, when his daughter died, the bees all left. The old gardener at once attributed it to his having
forgotten to give notice to the bees, who
were duly Informed the next time there
was a death in the family, and they remained ln their hives.—London Standard.
Bees Hold Up Railway Station.
A large parcel dropped on the platform of Burgess Hill station, Sussex,
burst open, and out buzzed a swarm
of bees. The parcel contained a hive.
In spite of the station—aster's or.l.r
to pack the bees up again none of the
staff would,approach.
At length- a forlirn hope, consisting
of an aged porter, was Induced by the
guerdon of a shilling to attack the parcel, but when the bees, possibly mistaking htm for a new kind of flower,
hummed around him he dropped lt and
ran. The bees held the platform till
the evening, when they returned to the
hive. Then the parcel was closed and
sent on to Its destination.—London

A Destructive Bee.
Prom a Camberwell correspondent
we have received a quite distressing
account of the d«etruotlon caused In
his conservatory by the leaf-cutting
Last Sunday a solitary bee found Its
way through the open windows, but
the news that rose leavaa were available in that part of a district where
rose culture Is uncommon bad been
conveyed with such success that this
week the glass house was swarmed with
the bees. Our correspondent Bays the
noise they make ls like the working of
countless pairs of minute scissors. The
bees have denuded his roses of their
loaves and have even turned attention
to the flower of the geranium.—.London

John S. McClelland, Orator and Journalist, Passes Away at St. Kitts.
In the death of John T. McClelland,
formerly editor of The Star, recently,
St. Catharines loses a gifted man—a
brilliant orator, journalist and poet. He
was born there 52 years ago. He learned the art of telegraphy when a boy,
and at the age of 20 was train de-
6p_te_er on the old Detroit and Milwaukee road, now the Chicago and
Grand Trunk.
In 1880 he went to New York, where
he followed telegraphy for a time, and
later became identified with the newly-
organized Knights of Labor, ln which
he served as secretary of the executive
board of the general assembly. He was
also secretary of the telegraphers' district, and assisted In managing the
great strike of that body In 1883. While
connected with the Knights of Labor,
ln association with Mr. Terrence V.
Fowderly, Mr. McClelland drafted the
American alien labor law, and succeeded ln having It passed by Congress,
himself appearing before the United
States Senate ln its advocacy.
During his residence In New York
deceased studied medicine during his
spare hours, and was graduated ifrom
the Homoeopathic department of Columbia University. After the strike he,
with many cUiena Interested, was
■blacklisted by the Western Union. He
was from that time until 1887 manager
of the New York State Associated
He then returned to St. Catharines,
and took the editorial management of
The Evening Star newspaper, ln which
position he remained until December,
1900, when he was appointed city clerk.
Mr. McClelland also served very acceptably as alderman for a number of
He possessed exceptional ability as a
public speaker, and during many election campaigns was heard with jnuch
acceptability from platforms ln ifl^ous
parts of this country. His repartee on
the public platform has perhaps never
"been excelled. He was also a writer
ar1 poet of no mean ability. He aehiev-
onslderable notoriety as tho advo-
... of the flat earth theory.
Experiences    of    Housekeepers   Who|
Keep   It   Handy.
In every home cuts, bruises, scalds!
and similar injuries are sure to occur,!
especially  where  there   are  children..
In  most  homes too   chapped   hands,!
chilblains,  eczema,   ringworm,  ulcers
and other skin diseases occur.
For these you need a balm which
is pure, herbal, free from mineral fat,
antiseptic, able to stop bleeding and
which should heal.
Zam-Buk meets all these requirements. Why not prove its merits.
Read this;—
Mrs. Angus, of Fenelon Falls, says:
—"In forty years of housekeeping I
have never met with such an excellent salve sa Zam-Buk."
Mrs. Everett Brown, of Markham,
(Ont.), says:—"Zam-Buk cured some
bad bruises on my knee. I also find

Mrs. Lizzie Gilmour, of Kingston,
says:—"I had an ulcerated leg, which
became so bad that I could not wear
a boot. The foot and ankle were
swollen to nearly double their ordinary size, nnd the pain was terrible.
The ulcers spread in a ring all round
the limb. Doctor's treatment brought
[ no relief, and at one time.' it was
thought only amputation could end
the agony I suffered. Zam-Buk was
brought to my notice, and I bought a
few boxes. Each box gave me mors
ease and healed the ulcers. To-day
I am quite cured, the limb is sound,
and whereas before I could not stand,
now I can go up and down steps with
3ase. I owe it all to Zam-Buk."
I Zam-Buk also cures eczema, cold
sores, ringworm, stiff joints, bad leg,
sore nipples, boils, aDscesses, blood
poison, poisoned wounds, etc. Used
as an embrocation it cures rheumatism and sciatica and rubbed well into
the chest cures lung troubles, colds,
etc. For all purposes to which a
household balm is put Zam-Buk will
be found unequalled. All druggists
sell at 50c. a box, or direct from the
Zam-Buk Co., upon receipt of price.

Was  Paralyzed  for Six Months and Could
Obtain  No Relief—Cure Came
With the Use of
Paralysis is always looked upon
with dread hut people who nre suffering from the ordinary symptoms
of nervous exhaustion such ns sleep-
'essr.ess, headache, indigestion and
loss of energy nnd ambition often forget thnt neglect alone is enough to
lead on to paralysis.
While this severe caso of parnlysis
wns cured by the use of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food it is always wiser and
safer to prevent such dangerous diseases by watching minor symptoms
and keeping the nervous system in
good condition at nil times.
Mrs. VV. R. Sutherlnnd, St. Andrews. Mnn., writes:—
"In Februnry, 1903, I was stricken
with paralysis, fell helplessly on the
floor and hnd to be carried to bed.
The doctor pronounced it a bad case
ss I hnd no power in my tongue of
•eft ieg. I remained in thnt condition
lor six months ' without obtnining
benefit from the doctor's prescriptions or otlier medicines.
"My husband advised me to try
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food and by the
use of this treatment all symptoms of
Uie disease disappeared. I can now
talk plainly, my leg'is ull right and
1 can do my housework. How grateful 1 nin to be cured by so wonder-
'ul - remedy."
Notwithstanding the mystery that
ih associated with the nerves and dis-
-asei of the nerves mere is nothing
.nysterious about the way in which
the vitality of the nerves is restored
liy Di'. Chnse's Nerve Food.
In nature nre found certain element.-, which go directly to form new,
lich blood and create new nerve force.
Because Dr. Chnse's Nerve Food is
composed of those very elements of
nature, it builds up the nervous system us no prepnration was ever
known to do.
By enriching and purifying the
blood it forms new, firm flesh nnd tissue, rounds out the form, restores a
healthful glow to the complexion, and
gradually but naturally nnd certainly
:eplnceb weakness and disease with
'leal'h,  strength  and  vitnlity.

ordinary digestive changes.
It Is only when the brain and the entire nervous system are practically off
duty that the processes of ultimate nutrition take place. The food oaten Is
finally asitlmllatcd and transformed
Into new tissues, into blood, muscle,
nerves and brain, only while the body
Is relnxed in slumber.
A curious illustration of this necessity of sleep Is that furnished, by the
six day endurance races. One mnn engaged ln these deadly tests ents five
times as mnch as a man on ordinary
labor could cram down. Want of sleep
has rendered it Impossible for even the
enormous amount of food taken at this
time into the body to form u-w tissue.

Tbe Ancients Evidently Bnd n Keen

The fnbles of AZaop prove that the
ancients were not without a liking for

the same story. Examples of artistic

a cat dressed as nn Egyptian lndy,of
fashion. She ls seated languidly ln a

between his legs.
The cat figures largely In the ancient

HAVE you ever heard boys and
girls a description of thn life of
middles on a training ship? If
not, you will be Interested In the
story of Robert Qreer, n'Baltimore bny,
who started out frum Brooklyn Navy
Yard last summer on Ills llrst cruise as
a midshipman.
The course was directed due south,
nnd the destination was the Philippines
by way of the Cape.
The flrst Monday oul. nt 9 o'clock, a
general muster wns called by the color
bugler, and the middles assembled at
quarters. At 10, they lay aft on the
quarter deck, every middy, the older
seamen lining up In Ihe rear of the
younger fellows, nnd the officers ranging themselves along the weather side
of the deck.
First, the executive officer read the
articles of war, then the roll was called,
each middy, as his name was called, answering promptly, "Here, sir," and, cap
In hand, walking down the long line forward under the critical inspection of all
the officers and men.
This over, nil the middles turned their
attention to tiffin (as luncheon Is called
as soon as the tropics are reached), on
the berth deck, where each of the mess
cooks prepares the mec.ls for twenty
men. Here, on the deck, Robert nnd his
fellow middles had their mess chests arranged between the guns, and between
every two guns were two dining tables.
Every morning at F> Robert and the
other middies had either to get down on
their hands and knees and "holystone"
the decks, or clean and polish all the
brass fittings, or sweep down decks.
There were enormous chain cables to be
cleaned, all the middies sitting over
them, pounding and clinking and scouring and dusting each link, and daubing
the cables over with coal tar nnd lacquer mixed. Then there were the gun
carriages to be stained, the guns to be
blackened, the stanchions to bo lacquered, the masts to be scraped and a score
of other things to be attended to before
the ship housecleanlng could be called
done for the day. "For the day." mind
you; each following day the entire programme had to be gone over agnln.
Indeed, whetiev, r ruins and winds
arose, there was not only the regular
work, but n lot nf extra work lies des.
Robert would then find a wet deck below; nnd ns th" hammocks were never
allowed during the day, he would have
to sit or lie down un the deck, wet
though it wns.
It wan tho Mondny after their second
Sunday nt sea that the middies met w th
the mn.it unusi'nl nnd Interesting experience  of  the  voyage.    They    hnd   b en
mustered at quarters and exercised at
firing exercises. After lunch they were
exercised In divisions, nnd then were
stationed for manning the ship's rail,
nnd were put through their Instructions
by the older seamen.
that King Neptune would appear to demand their homage.
Sure enough, Just as the deck exer-''
ciscs came to an end and eight bells
rang, the notes of a jolly Jig began ringing from the bugle, and the beginning
All this time the boys were on tiptoe
with excitement, for the word had gone
around that the moment the ship reached the equator interesting things were
to come to passi-just what no middy
could guess; but this much they knew;
of a strange procession came into view
from the officers' quarters.
At the head marched a curious and
Imposing character, dressed in a blue
suit, and long, flowing hair, beard and
moustache  made  of unbraided   manlla
rope; a tin crown ornamented with a
huge tin slar, and carrying a trident In
one hnnd.   •
"Hail to King Neptune!" roared one
of the older seiimen, ana then the middies took up the salutation and shouted
It all together.
Beside King Neptune tripped a be-
skirted creature with long manilla locks,
a crown ornamented witn star and crescent, nnd sporting a fearfully and wonderfully berlbboned parasol.
"Hall to Queen Amphitrite!" roared
the seamen, and "Hall to Queen Amphitrite!"   echoed  Robert and   his  brotner
Behind the royal pair marched the
Judge advocate general In the gorgeous
costume of an Elizabethan courtier,
combined with a wig of the Revolutionary era.
With him marched the purser, fixed up
Uncle Samlike, with a seven-inch collar and red, white ana blue swallowtail
coat and tall hat and trousers, the latter strapped to his boots.
The doctor brought up the rear, fronted by a huge apron, his sleeves protected with cotton covers, his huge stovepipe
hat made of inked-up blotting paper,
huge blue goggles on his nose, a huge
syringe in one hand, a wioked-looklng
lance and nippers and unsheathed knife
in the other.
"Great Caesar!'' ejaculated Robert,
"what's the doctor going to do?"
The doctor heard him. and, turning
greedy eyes upon him, studied his bodily
parts attentively for a moment, and
,   "Ha!  you're   worth  carving  up!    I'm
the executioner!"
And In spite of himself Robert felt a
thrill of tearfulness, the doctor looked
so murderous.
There were a chief of police, police
assistants, officer of the deck, assistant
officers, chief bear and cubs, drummer,
fifer. chief of detective bureau and other officials too numerous to describe.
Around and around the decks marched
the procession, until the green middles
appeared to be sufficiently Impressed.
Then King Neptune nnd Queen Amphitrite took their places on the thrones
which hnd been placed In the stern.
Their retinue took their stand about the
throne, and the doctor, chief of police
and chief of detectives pHced slowly and
grimly toward the line of fearfully expectant middies.
"Robert Greer!" suddenly shouted
the chief of police, "step forth."
Robert stepped forth promptly, but
with an ill-concealed shudder. What
were they Intending to do with him?
Slice off his ears? Slit his nose? Cut
his throat?   Pinch bits of flesh out of
his arms and legs? Burn him with,
hot pokers? Horrid tales had been told
the boys by the older seamen—tales
of worse doings than those even.
A booth made of awning was solemnly set down In front of the king,
Robert was conducted within It.
breathless silence reigned for a moment or two, then wails and cries and
groans began to  Issue from it.
"Robert's being tortured!" whispered
one middy to another, tremulously.
"Let me go! Please, let me go!"
pleaded the voice. "Oh! kill me at.
once! Oh! have mercy! Have mercy!"
What was really happening inside
the booth? Why,-this: On entering it,
Robert found himself seized, bound
nnd gagged. Then the ship's barber,
who had been concealed there, proceeded to shave him, while his assistants gave out the wails and cries and.
groans and pleadings, which the trembling middies outside attributed to
The shaving over, Robert was bundled up In a tarpaulin, and was solemnly carried forward bv four seamen—to
all appearances dead.'
Rapidly each remaining middy was
given his tufn tns'de the booth, to the
accompaniment of much the same
groans and cries.
When at lust this part of the program was completed King Neptune and
Queen Amphitrite transferred their
court to the forward deck, where there
lay side by Elde, gagged and bound, on
the boards all of the middles who had
Just teen put through the shaving
booth—all now full of "laugh," which
they were fairly dying to bellow forth.
A tarpaulin tank had been filled on
the lower deck, about seven feet deep,
and a ducking stool placed in position.
The Doctor now come forward and,
ungagging each middy in turn, with the
help cf his assistants, plnced him in
the stool and gave him as many duckings in the tank as the King commanded. Usually the middy who made
the most fuss got the largest number of
When at last the strange ceremony
was ended. King Neptune and Queen
Amphitrite arose, and the middles, released from their bonds and dripping
like dogs, were commanded to file slowly by, kiss the Qeeen's hand and the
King's toe, and receive the symbol of
knighthood, which was a smart rap on
their heads from the King's sceptre.
Then the King and Queen and their
retinue marched away and disappeared
Into the officers' quarters. And thus
ended Robert's and the other middies'
day with King Neptune on the equator.

"Mercy!" said mother, "Benny

"Yes," said father, "we'll go directly
after breakfast."
So Benny nnd his fnther went down
to the city, and pretty soon tbey reached
Ihe barber's parlor.
"This little fellow wants a shearing,"
said father.
"All right, sir," answered 'he barber,
"shampoo, too, sir?"
"Yes, you might as well." said father.
"Now Benny. I'll leave you here for half
an hour; then I'll come back "
"Sit down in this chair," arid the barber. And so Benny climbed Into a chair
before a great big mirror.
Then the barber took a pair of sharp
shears, and clip-cllp-elip off came ever
so many Icinff locks of B.-nny's hair.
"My, my, I didn't know 1 hnd so much
hair!" said Binny.
"Better take a nice long lock home to
your mother, Benny," said the bnrber.
"You will never have any more hair like
this, you know."
"That's just what I shall do," said
Then the barber took a bottle and
shook it nnd shook it and squirted a lot
of stuff out Into his hnndB and then ran
his hands all through Benny's hair.
"Je-ru-sa-lem!" exclaimed Benny.
"You're making a snowball of my head."
And you boys and girls T.-ould have
thought so, too, If you could have seen
"Ha! ha!" laughed the barber. "You
mny look like a snowball, but you den't
feci like one this warm day, I'll warrant."
"You're right. I don't," said Benny.
Then the barher told him to go over
to nnother part of the room where there
was a reclining chair and at ' he head of
It a big basin.
"Sit down and hang your head back
over the bneln." directed the arber, and
Benny did as he was told.
Then the barber connected a piece of
rubber hose, turned nn the water, and—
"Gee whiz!" gasped Benny, "what am
you doing to me?"
"Oh, just rinsing the soap out of your
hair," laughed the barber, as he turned
the nozzle of the hose hen. and there all
over Benny's hend.
"Ugh, It's hot!"
"Oh. never mind. It'll snrn be cold."
"Oh. that's better, 1 like thnt," returned Benny, ns the barber mnde the
water a little less warm. After that he
made It cool nnd finally so cold that just

Then the barber wiped his head with

will soon make It warm."
Which lt did, sure enough; and then
it felt like .he south wind. And now
the barber did such un odd thing—he
connected a piece of huse with the fanning machine and tumid this south wind
on Benny s hair, Just as through the
other hose he hnd turned on water.
In about five minutes Benny's hair
wns perfectly dry. And the barber
dressed and parted It neatly, so that by
the time his father came back he scarcely knew his own Bon. ,
And no wonder! For the fourth picture shows the way Benny looked.
His head looked several sizes smaller
and himself several Inches taller than
before his hair was cut.
"Papa, 1 want to give a lock of my
hair to mamma." said Benny.
"All right," said his father; "we'll
go to the Jeweler's and hnve him put it
In a pretty locket. And by the time we
are ready to start for home It will be
ready for us."
So, thnt evening they got the locket
from the Jeweler's and gnve It to Benny's mother. When she snw Benny and
then the lock of hair she broke dowif
nnd cried n little.
"For, Benny, Benny, you aren't my
baby boy any more." she sighed.
•ml~        A AMf*3$S ifj-Hk _ i
THE    King    of   rtowden-hlowden
hud an only child, a daughter.
She   was   clever   and   beautiful
and  kind-hearted,  but  terribly
The only person who could manage
her at all was the court Jester. Ho
never contradicted her, but shrewdly
advised her always to do Ihe very opposite of what he really wished her
to do. In thiB way the Princess nnd
he got on lienutlfully together -,'ntll
one dreadful day.
On that day the King, who had been
busy examining papers, was lunching
quietly In his study, and the court
jenter was the only person waiting on
hlin. The PrlncesB was also In the
apartment and amused herself by
looking at everything In the room.
Suddenly   she  Interrupted   her   father.
"See what a funny old t oak I've
found In that big cupboard!" she ex-
clnlmed "What do you keep It for,
The King, being rather cross nt the
Interruption and forgetting his daughter's unlucky- stubbornness. spoke
rather sharply and to the point:
"Put It right back, my dear."
•   "Why,    pray    tell?"    demanded    the
Princess, obstinately.
The court Jester motioned to the
King to be careful, but ln vain.
"Because I bid you do so, my daughter, and because young people should
be seen rather than heard," ho returned Irritably.
"Then I shan't." declared the haughty
Princess. "I shall put It on nnif see
how I  look  In  it, and I  prefer  to be
heard rather than seon myself."
Then, paying no heed to the Jester's
violently shaken linger or her father's
sudden cry of alarm, she threw the
cloak over her shoulders.
Instantly she vanished!
"Oh, where am 1?" she cried, and
tried to tear off the cloak, but her efforts were of no use, for the cloak
clung to her shoulders as if it grew
there. Up in the air she rose and
away she floated over thu city strulghi
toward the country.
At last she sunk gently to earth
again ln a quaint meadow. It was
a sunny, clear day, and there was
no one in sight except a goose-girl
nnd her flock of geese So the Princess walked up to the child, thinking
she would send her to the village
nearby to Bet her a carriage In which
she could have herself driven home.
Hut when she spoke, the llttle one
screamed with terror and ran away.
"Stupid child! thoueht the Princess; "well, the Village is so close that
I'll go myself."
But the same thing hi.ppened In the
village. Every one she spoke to ran
nway In terror, till at last she was
so tired und frightened herself that
she almost wept. And she was hungry, too; and so when a fat baker's
boy ran from her screaming nnd left
his basket of rolls on the ground, the
Princess cnlmly chose ono and ate It.
"I can pay for It after I reach
home," she thought, "and for the
milk, too, which I see the slllv milkman left behind in his flight. But,
oh! why dues everybody run away
from me.  I wonder?"
And she inlfr.it have continued wondering to this hour If u curious thing
hnd not  happened.
It was growing dark nnd chilly, nnd
the Princess was sitting by the roadside, cold and unhappy, without an
Idea how far from home she wns. and
wishing she had not beon so foolish
and Btubborn, when she heard a soft
cry of pain. There on the grass near
her was a tiny, ragged baby boy,
Just able to toddle. He wus whimpering with pain, for his little bare feet
were bruised and eut.
The  Princess  forgot her  troubles.
"Oh! poor darling!" she said, and
Jumped up. And. strange to say, the
baby stopped crying and let her bathe
his feet ln the brook and bandage
them with strips from her soft muslin dress.
* And then she gathered him under the
old cloak and sang him to sleep. Just as
he fell asleep, what do you suppose happened? Why, the Princess found herself lifted in air and fiylns straight to-
' n
ward home. How glad she was to find
herself at last floating through an open-
window Into her own room. And the
moment her feet touched the floor off
from her shoulders dropped the cloak.
She luld the sleeping child on hei bed
nnd rung for her ola nurse,
"Mercy on us!" cried the nurse. "Whnt.
Is this the Princess has biought homfc-
with her?"
Then the Princess told her the whole
story, and after that went to see her
"I suppose he will lie dreadfully anxious abuut me," she thought.   .
But. lo and behold! he wub still slt-
tii.g calmly In hs room, and the court
Jester was with him.
"8o you are buck my dear?" he said,
with a twinkle In his eye. "And how did
the clonk fit. eh?"
"Oh, fnther!" cried the Princess, "don't
tease, if you please; but tell me what is
that terrible cloak?"
"It Is the magic cloak of Justice,"
said the King;" and lt punishes and rewards so strictly thnt I keep It locked
up. You see. lt took you at your word,
and made you heard rather thnn seen."
"Oh! and thut Is the reason why everybody screamed and run away. I see!"
said the Princess. "Well, I don't wonder, I'm sure. But why did It bring me
"Because you were good again, of
course " said the King.
"Oh, I see! I was good to the llttle
boy. Well, I promise you. father, deur,
I nm cured of stubbornness, once and
for all."
And she was, too. E. D. F.

School Trustee
To the Electors*:
At the earnest solicitution of a large
number of leading citizens I have consented to offer myself as a candidate for
School Trustee. My experience has
been coueidorabie in Publio School
matters; for 14 yearn as teacher in your
city schools, nnd two years as a Trustee.
Iu brief my views are:
Thnt the Publio Schools should be
conducted on the most practical lines so
as best to lit onr youth for their future
Thnt overcrowding of schools be
guarded against.
That in teaching moro individual
attention be given tho more backward
That, where practicable, Night
Schools be conducted for the benefit of
those who are post ago of attendance at
pnblic schools.
Tha^ members of tho Board should
frcquoi-ly visit the schools.
Thut greater care bo taken in lessoning tho burdens of the taxpayer consistent with thorough efficiency.
That the time has como. when a con
certcd effort ought to be" made to pro
cure a considerable tract of land for
University purposes.
Our motto: Vacouver Schools first;
Vancouver is tho University centre.
If elected, I shall endeavor to carry
dot those principles.
