I The Man from Prince Albert was al-
fways a shrewd fellow, with an ability
lto obtain Information by suggestion
rather than direct question, so I did
not wonder that he was soon conversant with De Arcey's plans, and revelling ln stories of his wanderings ln

"I never knew," said tbe Man from
Prince A-oert, "touch a man te ask
{questions aboot the Indians. He seem-
•d to have read alt that was ever written about them, but wanted to find
lout for himself. I could talk Cree and

interested In the grammar of their

of the gibberish, which was -ko the

Unfortunate Delay.
' "He expected to be abla to start for
the far north about the Ist of January,
but one day he came Into the shop, and
J could see he was feeling blue. Them

down there. Of course the society peo
pie had nothing more to do with him.'
He used to come ln to see me at times,
but lt was not the same, and we both
know It All his wife's relatives came(
and lived off him, which Is the way of
Indians, and he got more and more like
an Indian every day. When he came to
town he was careless about bis dress,
and used to get drunk with bums he
would not speak to before. |
"His people ln the Old Country heard
about it somehow, and his sister came
out to see him. She drove out to see
the Indian agent. He knew how things
were, and wanted to keep her all night
and drive her out next day. She would
not hear of that She said she would
be her brother's guest. The agent knew
sna would not, but said no more.
A Sorry Spectacle.
Tt was evening when she got to his
hut His squaw, who could talk English, answered her sourly ln Cree, and
the dirty little children Just stared at
her. Then she saw her brother coming
up from tha woods driving an Indian
pony loaded with charred togs for firewood. He was a sight to behold. Poor
lady! She came back to the agent's
house after all. She arranged to have
him paid aa much money every month,
and went back home, and De Arcey did
not Improve any. What would she do?
He wa«M aot leave bis squaw, and be
seemed to have crown to like living
like an Indian.
"When the rebellion broke ont all the
white people flacked Into Prince Albert, and a white man warned De Arcey
to flee also. He laughed at the Idea,
saying he was safe among his friends.
His squaw's brother was among the
braves who rose, and on day De Arcey
saw bkn come out of the woods near
his house in full war paint. De Arcey
advanced to meet him, and the young
blood ln mere bravado shot and scalped
There was silence in our little group
tor a moment, and then the Man from
Prince Albert blew bis nose ostentatiously and wiped his eyes with tba
corners of his handkerchief, complaining of having caught a cold. De Arcey's
body was found later, and given Christian burial, while the young brave

An Expert's Experience of the Curl In
the Pig's Tail.
An old man while looking over my
herd of Berkshire swine not long ago
remarked to me: "There are some
bogs which I prefer to the Berkshlres,
but there is one feature about your
Berkshires that I always like very
much, you always have the curl in
their tails. And, after all, there ls not
so much In the breed of hogs in profitable pork production as there ls In
the good feeding and care that show
thrift by the curl in the tall.
"On one occasion a few years ago I
wanted to buy some pigs, and the man
who was then farming one of your
places asked me to come and see some
he had for sale. rVhen I came to look
at the pigs the man apologized for
their bad condition by telling me they
were bewitched and that he had been
thinking nbout going to consult a witch
doctor about them. The pigs wero
mangy, thin and bore all the ear-
marks of unthrlft. Their tails hung
down straight and sorrowful looking.
Of course I knew there was no use In
arguing with a man who believed ln
witches and things of that kind, but I
could fully agree with him that there
was something tbe matter with hia
pigs and advised him to widen their
ration of nubbins and dishwater, to
take in all they would eat of skim milk,
cornmeal ana wheat middlings. I told
him I had never fed anything so effective as that combination in bringing
back the curl to pigs' tails and that I
believed the trouble with his pigs was
that their tails had lost their curl."
I feed my swine considerable corn,
probably more than the professors
would approve of as scientific feeding.
To my mind that feeding is most scientific that produces the best results
from a minimum cost, that keeps up
the curl ln the tall and shows a good
profit. A careful, watchful feeder cau
use a great deal of corn ln his swine
feeding without by any means producing an undesirable amount of fat.
Corn does not all run to fat. It contributes to the making of lean meat,
blood, bone and the repair of tissue. It
is not all clear carbohydrate. It has
protein also, and one of Its greatest
recommendations ls that no feed that
we can use carries its nutrients in a
form so digestible as those in corn, nnd
no feed ls more palatable.—W. P. Mo-

The Pepper Plant.
The most common and widely used
of all spices ls pepper. It ls a native of
the East Indies, but ls now cultivated
ln various port of the tropical belt of
America.   The plant Is a climber and
has a smooth stem, sometimes twelve
feet long. The fruit ls about the size of
a pea and whc*n ripe Is a bright red
color.  In cultivation tho plant Is supported  by  poles.   In some  localities
I small trees are used Instead of poles,
i for tbo best pepper ls grown ln a cer>
tain degree  of  shade.   The plant  fs
propagated   by   cuttings,   comes   Into

about twelve years. When a lew of tbe
berries turn from green to red all af
them  are  gathered,   becauss If  they

One eveuing Sutcombe came home—
he had been down to the Momus—
Just in time to dress for dinnar- and
Vivlenna, hearing his footsteps, call-
ad him into the dining-room to look
at the floral decorations.
"Aren't they pretty Sutcombe?"
she said, in the softened tones which
come so naturally to most women
whon they are speaking of flowers.
"Very," he assented. "Is it a special  occasion?"
"Why, yes. The Letchfords are dining with us to-night. Had you forgotten?"
"Ah, yes!" he said, apologetically.
"I've been busy and— Any news,
It was the question he always
asked when returning home, however short his absence.
Vivienne shook her head, and, as
he sighed,  she  asked:
"Why are you so anxious, dear?
Nothing can have happened to
them "
He looked doubtful and troubled.
"I don't know. Sometimes I'm
afraid— It was an open boat; and—I
should have thought one of them
would have written."
Vivienne smiled reassuringly. "I'd
trust them in a cockle-shell, Sutcombe!" she said
The ILetchfords enme up to time.
They sat down to dinner. Strangely
enough—and yet not so strangely, for
the Letchfords often thought of their
dead friend—the conversation strayed
indirectly toward the subject of
Vane's death ond Julian's succession.
"I met Sir Chandos Orme to-day—
you know him, I think, Sutcombe?"
said Letchford.
Sutcombe nodded. "A little; who
"You'll be sorry to nenr that he is
breaking up—at. Inst! I saw him in
St. James Street, and scarcely knew
him; and he did not know me nt all.
He wns tottering along like an old
man, his wig nil askew, the enamel,
or whatever it is, cracked and in
blotches on his luce, and his lips
twisted into a fatuous, senile grin.

chap! What you call an awful warning and example. I crossed over anil

wanted to enquire after his daughter,
"And how   is  she?"   asked    Lady
Letchford, gravely.
Her husband shook her hend.
"Very   bad,  I gathered.     She hns
never  got     over  the  shock   of"—his
voice     dropped—"of     that      terrible
tragedy    at     Lesborough.      I    don't
think you   know   much of    my poor
friend,   Vane Mnnnering,   Sutcombe?"
Sutcombe colored and fidgeted.    He
had not been authorized to proclaim
that Vane still lived.
"I—I have met him," he said.
"An  i    fully   flood  fellow—one   of
the very  best,"  suid Letchford.   with
a deep sigh.    "He had a very short
innings; and they weren't particularly    huppy    ones.     There    was    some
cloud—   There's a kind of ban on the
Lesborough   family,    and I'd    hoped
he'd broken it; but ho didn't and the
present man   doesn't    look ns if   he
Sutcombe looked up quickly.
"You don't like him?" ho said.
Lctchford colored at the direct appeal.
"Well, n-o," he replied, reluctantly.
"There was never any doubt of
your Lord Lesborough's death, I
suppose?" asked Sutcombe; and it
was now Vivienne's turn to frowu at
"Eh?i What?" said Letchford,
much startled. "Why, no; how could
there be? We saw—or as good as
saw—him die." There was a moment's pause, then he added:. "By the
way, now you ask tho question,
there is one person who refused to
believe that he was burnt—old Lady
Fanworthy. But, then, as everybody
knows, she is the most eccentric woman in the kingdom."
"I'm not sure that her incredulity
in this case proves her eco3ntricity,"
said Sutcombo.
"Eh?   What?"    repeated  Letchford,
amazedly.   "I  was there,  you  know,
when the terrible affair happened—".
"And      saw     Lord      Lesborough's
body?" put in Sutcombe,
"No; no one could see thnt," replied Letchford, in a low voice. "But
there was enough to identify him.
There was the coat, a fragment of
it,  and the buttons—"
"He might have left the coat
there," suggested Sutcombe, "Or"—
he paused impressively—"or he might
have lent it to some one."
Letchford stared; thnn he shook his
head and sighed.
"No good, Sutcombe! I wish it
were! If my poor friend wasn't
burnt to death that night, what became of him: jvhere is Jie'.V'. |
Sutcombe 'loaned lorwarci, and,
with all eyes, Vivienne's fearfully,
fixed on him, he retorted:
"I'm lawyer enough to remind you
that you have to prove that ho is
dead. See, now, Letchford; you say
that there was a cloud over his life;
that he had once before disappeared
and been lost to his friends; that,
although he had succeeded to the
title, and was well oil—a rich man-
he was still unhappy. How do you
know, that he didn't disappear again;
that, for reasons you and I cannot
guess, he did not yield to a desire to
surrender thd title nnd the money to
his cousin, the beir, to whom he
was,  I boliove, much attached—"
Letchfe-'d sprang to his feet, his
face aglow.
"By heaven, Rutcombe, you—you
know, you have heard something!" he
Sutcombe crimsoned, then turned
"I—I"—he stammered; but before
he could say any more the servant
came to the door.
"Would you step into the library,
my lord?" he said, very gravely.
Sutcombe, glad to escape, rose
promptly. "Excuse me a moment,
will you?" he said. "Some business
connected   witb   <ju)   .theatre.   I
He went out, covertly wiping the
perspiration from his forehead. He
had gone further than he intended,
and the Interruption came at a lucky
moment antl would give him time to
think over some way of explaining
awuy the impression he had created.
He entered the library, then started
back with a low cry. For Vane and
Nina stood there.
He closed the door sharply, then
got hold of a hand of ench, and all
of them were talking at once, the
two men laughing in the nervous way
in which men try to conceal their
emotion, and Nina standing silent,
but with the happy tears in her
"When did you come back?" Sutcombe was at last able to enquire.
"To-day—this (moment. We sent
the lugguge to the Carlton and came
on here.    All the dinner eaten?"
"No, no!" said Sutcombe, still
r'lging his hand. "Just at it. And
\ i ienne! Can't you guess how delighted she will be, He—Lady Lesborough! And we wero just talking
of you! But when aren't we! But,
oh, by Jove!" He stopped aghast.
"There's—there are some people here
you know—the Letchfords!"
Vane's faco lit up, and he nodded
and turned to Nina. "She knows
them, though sho hasn't seen them;
don't you, Nina?"
"Yes," she murmured; for how often had she not listened to his story
of the Letchfords' goodness to him?
"Come on," said Vane. "We're not
in evening dress,  but"	
"But they think you're dead," said
Sutcombe, ruefully. ..Then his face
cleared "No, by Jove! for as luck
would have it, I've just been preparing them for the fact that you are
still   alive—"
"And kicking!" Vano finished.
"Lead on, Macduff! Poor, dear, old
Letchford, how glad he'll be!"
"Give me a moment—just two moments. You stay outside the door till
I give the word; you'll know when
to show up!"
When he returned to the dining-
room Vivienno saw from his faco
that ho had "heard news," anil sho
uttered a low cry. But he addressed
himself to Letchford.
"You asked me just now, Letchford, to tell you where Lesborough
is, if he was not killed that night,
os you concluded; I couldn't tell you
a few minutes ago, but I've heard
news, and 1 can now!"
Vivienne rose, supporting herself by
the table.
"Sutcombe! You hcvj seen them!
Oh, whero are they?"

"I say 'No!' " responded Vane,
"And I— Dash it all, I wish I
could!" said Letchford. "But don't
be guided by me. I'm prejudiced. I
never liked him."
"There is only one course to follow," said Sutcombe. "You must go
down nnd confront him, Lesborough.
You will soe in a moment whether ho
is as guilty as I deem him. Take

broke in Vane. "I'll go down tomorrow. If I find that he is innocent,
then I will share half the estate with
him, with my wife's full and free
consent. I can't give him the title;
that"—he paused—"is not mine to
give. But anything else— You will
find I am right, Sutcombe."

Tho following day Julian Shore
was sitting in the library. Though
the weather was warm, a fire had
been lit, and he had pulled the armchair close to it and was crouching
over it, with his thin, white hands
held to the blaze. If there were, indeed, a ban on the house of Lesborough, that ban was resting very
heavily on the present bearer of the
title; for Julian Shore looked the
most wretched and unhappy of men.
It was of Judith, and almost only
of Judith, he thought as he bent forward, his dark eyes fixed gloomily on
the lire. Of Vane he thought not at
all. Vane had been in' the way both
of his passion and his greed for
rank and wealth and power, and—
Vane was removed. Judith, only
Judith, sat enthroned In the mind bo-
hind the sombre brow.
Even Lady Fanworthy's enquiry,
almost anxious enquiry, for Deborah did not trouble him. Deborah
had disappeared on the day of the—
fire; but her disappearance had not
moved him. It was probable, he
thought, that the reason for her absence which he had given was not
far from the truth; she bad, in all
likelihood, gone to a relative. The
loss of her services was felt by bim

again; but he was as indifferent to

Lesborough, or, »t least, would soon

had performed his nnrt of the contract; how should urce her to fulfil hers? His min, -is at work on
the question all day, und every day,
nnd his thin, bloodless lips now
formed her name inaudibly. He rose,
presently, his lips twitching, and,
taking a spirit stand from the sideboard, ho poured out some brandy,
and   drank   it     slowly,   nioditatingiy.
He paused, and looked towards tho
door, and muttered in quite a matter-of-fact voice:     ,     .        „
•"that was like vane s.   Strange!
He sank into the chair and leaned
back, with closed eyes, the white lids
gloaming in a ghastly fashion from
the dark shadows which encircled his
eyes; but suddenly the lids flickered.
The door had opened, nnd a step—
so strangely like Vane's—was heard
in the room. He raised his lids,
hoavy with insomnia, and, without
moving his head, turned his eyes.
Vane stood looking down nt him
with an nnxious, doubtful, troubled
"Julian!" he said, gravely, gently.
"Don't be frightened,   lt is I!"
Julian regarded him with lack-
luBtre eyes.
"Too much brandy; no sleep," he
muttered to himself. "I expected
this. How like! It might be Vane
"Don't you know me, Julinn?"
said Vane, still more anxiously, with
a look of greater doubt and trouble
in his face. "1 have just returned to

me your hand, your congratulations!
What is the matter? Julian, arc

"His voice, exactly!" muttered
Juliun, almost with admiration. "A

"No, no! You can't make your

materialize to that extent! No, no!
So you are going to haunt me? I
think not! 1 can lay you, my good
cousin, as I raised you, with this!"
He lifted tho glass and drank a long
draught. "It is only a question of

sad sternness, a foreboding of what
was to follow, Julian went on:
"Not gone yet? What tio you want?

confession? Take it, then, und be
off, good ghost. And you are good,
excellent! The very image of my
dear, noblo cousin. Won't that well-
merited compliment send you back to
Hell—oh, no, good men like you go

gone? You will havo that confession?"
His lips writhed into a mocking
smile. "You insist? With all my
heart. Well, then, my dear Vane, I
laid the little plot Which transported
you to the good man's eternal reward. And you must admit that it
was as neat and finished as any that
even a Borgia could conceive. Come,
now I confess that you had not the
least glimmering o'f an idea that the

fluent words that left, gloatingly, tho
livid, working lips, shrunk back with
manlv shame   as if.he were tbi'.guilty

"Good God!" he gasped. "Are-
are you  mad,  Julian?"
;'Mad? Not a whit, thanks, ghost
of my dear Vane!".retorted Julian,
with a laugh, as he turned to the decanter of brandy. "I am the sanest
of the sane; for I am one of those
men who know what they want—nnd

Lesborough estates. 1 nearly had
them, for you were supposed to be

sider's—and later thut day at niy

The sweat stood thickly on Vane's
forehead; the honor of the scene wes
almost intolerable. He tried to end
"Julian!"  broke  from  him.    "This
is   madness—stark,    raving madness.
You—you Could not have done it!"

to laugh derisively.
"Couldn't I? Not for the title and
the estates, perhaps. I wanted them
badly enough, but I—don't—think,
I'm not sure, that I'd have murdered you for them. Murder's a serious
thing, after all. But I wanted something more badly than I wanted the
title and the estates. Can't you
guess? You dull ghost, you obtuse
phantom! I wanted the woman you
once loved, and who still loved you
"Judith!" echoed Vane, in a horrified whisper.
Julian laughed.
"Judith! Why is she not here? I
want her! She will not. deceive mu,
will not rob me of my prize, herself,
her love! No, no! The compact was
too serious. Murder! Yes, it was
murder. And did I shrink from it?

He staggered, and, making for the
chair, fell into it, his head sunk on
his breast, his long, thin hands extended as if to clutch at something.
"Vano!"  he cried.
"Murderer!" said  Vane, sternly.
Julian struggled to his feet and
held out his hand, with a quivering

and yet with the pity one extends to

Julian. "How? I am glad, very glad!

up, compelling the vessel to keep away
from the ooast.
For nearly three weeka they beat
about at sea, and never sighted land
until well down the French coast. Then
another great gale occurred, forcing the
Genista to continue her voyage round
the Cape without touching any convenient port for Capt. Pearson to land.

Indeed, Just how the people of the
cold parts of this country got any comfort during the severe whiter days is
uot apparent to the eyes of today that
have looked upou the simple and curious beat producers of early times. A
rare collection of these ancient fireplaces, andirons, stoves and other promoters of mercurial rises is preserved
today in the Essex institute In Salem,
Mass., together witb much interesting
information thereon.
One of these curios ls a fireback from
tbe ancestral home of Colonel Timothy
Pickering, Washington's friend and
secretary of war. It Is of slate and
looks like o gravestone. It was carved
with the Pickering family crest. It
was placed In tbe back of the fireplace,
so tbat tbe burning logs would not set
fire to tbe bouse.
These old fashioned fireplaces wera
huge affairs. Children could sit In
their corners and watch the sparks
chase each o_,<• toward tbe stars. The
fireplaces and chimneys were first lined
with mud, so that tbey would not burn,
but later tbey were made of brick.
It Is a common remark that in trying
to get warm at such tlie faces of people were roasted from the heat, while
their backs froze In the drafts from the
cracks ln tbe windows and doors.
But tbe early forefathers were a
hardy race and endured the cold wonderfully. The ruritans of Salem refused to beat their meeting houses, declaring tbat warmth therein "was a
snake of ye wily and wicked Satan."
Tbe sturdy Puritan sires and their
sons kicked their heels together when
the cold stopped the circulation of their
blood, and the preachers often patiently paused In their two hours' discourses to wait for everybody to become warm and stop kicking.
Women carried little foot stoves to
church. These were perforated tin
boxes about a foot square, into which
hot embers from the family hearth
were placed, and the hot stove was
then taken to meeting along wltb tbe
Coal was known ns early ns 1637 ln
this country, und lt was called "iron
stone." But wood was fnr cheaper
and more convenient und was most
used. Peat was nlso utilized, as it
could be obtained from many bogs.
Stoves were Introduced ns early as
1052, and In that year the general
court of Massachusetts granted to John
Clark 10 shillings for every family
using his valuable Invention, a stove,
for a period of three years, and this
grant was subsequently extended for
a period of Clark's lifetime, the general
court being deeply grateful for the comfort derived from his Invention.
The first open front coal stoves were-
designed by Benjamin Franklin and
were cast by .Tamos Byres & Co. in
Springfield, Mass, ln 1787. Franklin,
probably got his idea from the Germa»
stoves used In Pennsylvania. These
had a hot air drum, which extended to
the second story nnd wiirmed that part
of the house, but the doors of many of
them were outside the house, so that it
was necessary to go outdoors to feed
tbem with fuel. Franklin's Invention
marked the beginning of stoves for
buruiug coal aud i lod which are ln
general use today.
These early stoves were as great
blessings to the forefathers as are
steam heaters todny. Even the poets
sung of their vlrtueB, referring to them
as "stoves which autumn of winter
could make."
But today tbe practical man wants

A Bold Step.
To overuomo the woll-grounded and
reasonable objections of the more Intelligent to the use of secret, ihodiclnal compounds, Dr. E. V. Pierce, ot Buffalo, N.
Y., somo timo ago, decided to make a bold
departure from tlio usual course pursued
by tho makers of put-up modiclpes for domestic use, and so has published broadcast and openly to tho whole world, a full
nnd complete list of all tho Ingredients
entering into thnconipostyon of his widely
celebrated medicines. Thus he has taken
his numerous patrons nnd patients Into
bis full confidence. Thus too he has re- ,
movod his medlclue-i from among secret ; I »g M thill pnpor.
nostrums of doubtful merits, and made | •-;
them I.cm<—ies of Known t'ornjioattltm.
By this hold step Dr. Pierce has shown
that Ills formulas are of snell excellence
that he Is not afraid to subject them to
the fullest scrutiny. '

Olive's Courtship
4   Author of "A Cruel Revenge," "A Forbidden Marriage," "A Beautiful Coquette," "The
Heiress of Cameron Hall"
"What a short step it is from joy
to misery! how thin may be the wall
that divides happiness from the most
abject sorrow!" muttered Roger
Glendenning, the private secretary of
Judge Knecland, as he walked slowly
across the velvet-carpeted floor of the
Judge's private office, and opening
•ver so slightly the door that led
into the court-room, peered anxiously in.
He saw by the look of matters that
It would be some time ere the judge
would be at leisure.
The vast court-room was packed; a
great trial was taking place. A
young Yale student, the idolized son
ol a great banker, was on trial for
bis life—the life which was so sweet,
which God gave, and which twelve
men could take fro*) him.
_ne -great lawyer for the defense
Was making his closing speech; every
eye was upon him, and every ear was
strained to catch each word that fell
from his impassioned lips. Ko one
•ave the judge's private secretary,
peering in through the small aperture of the door, saw the little child
on the prisoner's right slip down
from its nurse's arms, make its way
to the box, and climb to the prisoner's knee till it twined its arms
around the young man's neck, piping
out shrilly: "Do turn home, bruver
Ned; 1'se so tired waitin' for 'oo!"
The effect of this scone upon the assemblage was electrical. How small
an event can turn the tide of a
man's life!
In a twinkling the great lawyer had
taken advantage of the incident, and
his clarion tones rang out in words
that burned and thrilled their way to
the excited hearts of tho peoplo—ay,
to their very core. Women were
weeping, and strong men turned palo
to their bearded lips.
The countenance of Judge Knecland
alone was inflexible as that of a
sphinx carved in stone, but for the
frown of annoyance and the pitiless
light in his deep-set gray eyes as
he ordered the court officers to remove the child without delay.
Roger Glendenning, the private secretary, closed the door with a little
shudder, turning back into tho
warmth and choer of tho office, with
Its air of luxury nnd comfort, crossing to the window where the sweet
morning sunshine poured in, warm
nnd golden, from a bright, blue,
cloudless sky.
How strange it was that this sunny day held quite as much in store
for the private secretary as it did
for the prisoner on trial for his life
in the court-room yonder.
He was a tall, broad-shouldered,
handsome man of nine-anil-twenty,
this Rogor Glendenning, whoso life
held bo strange a story and so deep
a mystery.
He was a man of brilliant attainments, and might havo dono better
than remain as private secretary to
the stern old judge; yet there was a
peculiar reason why he retained thut
position instead of turning his hand
to science, alchemy, or medical researches, in any one of which ho
might have startled the world with
his amazing knowledge and experiments.
The young man looked long and
thoughtfully out of the window at
the great crowds surging to and fro
on the pavement below; looked without seeing, for his thoughts were
Only that day he had dared ask
Judge Knecland if he might pay his
addresses to his only daughter, Olive.
He had not the temerity to stand
before the stern old judge and make
that request in words; he had put
lt all in a letter, placed it on bis
desk, with a paper-weight over it,
where ho would be mire to so* it ot
once, for the judge always opeued
every letter marked "private."
The young secretary had made it
convenient that morning to be away
from the office on a very important
business mission until the judge hud
come to his office, read his letters,
and gono Into court.
When Roger camo to the offlce he
saw at once that the letter waB not
on the judge's dosk, and he knew
that he muBt havo read It. No wonder ho awaited his coining in fear
and trembling.
llis suspense wob not of long duration. The tramping of many feet
Boon told him that court had ud-
Journcd, and a moment later Judge
Kneoland entered his ofiice.
The young man raised his eyes to
the judge's face; he hud told himself
that he should know nt once by its
expression whether his case was hopeful or hopeless.
The judgo bowed coldly nnd ci oss-
ed at onco to his desk, busied himself with his papers a moment, then
turned very deliberately to his   sec
retary, and asked sharply about
some business transaction that had
been attended to that morning.
But Glendenning was not to be
put ofl after this fashion.
After he had answered him, the
young man walked slowly over to
his desk, and leaning one arm on
tho mantel, confronted him steadfastly, earnestly.
He never knew in what words he
began his plea, or how he ever summoned the courage to utter them to
Olive's stern father. But ere he had
proceeded with half a dozen sentences, the judge's hand came down
with such tremendous force on his
desk that it fairly made the casement close by rattle like castanets,
and caused the words to die in his
"Stop! stop right where you are,
Mr. Glendenning! Not another word
on this subject! You ask me for the
most precious treasure I possess, my
fair young daughter's hand, sir,"
said Judge Kneeland, harshly, turning deliberately about in his office-
chair and facing the fair, handsome
young man who stood leaning
against the mantel, flushing and paling beneath the keen scrutiny of the
cold gray eyes bent upon him.
"Now, hear what I have te say:
"For throe years you have been my
trusted private secretary; you have
been accorded the hospitality of my
home; you did me the great service
of saving my life, receiving "over
your own heart the stab that was
intended to pierce mine. I said then,
'Ask any favor in reason of me, at
any time in life, that is within my
power to grant, and it shall be
yours.' I hod forgotten that I had a
daughter; at least, she never entered
into my thoughts or calculations
when I made that remark."
"But I thought of her while you
were speaking, sir," began the young
man, eagerly. "Why, from the first
moment I beheld your daughter
Olive, my heart went out to her.
Judge Kneeland held up his hand
with a gesture of silence which cut
short his companion's enthusiastic
"I was about to add," continued
the judge, abruptly, "that owing to
my gratitude toward you, I took you
into my employ, waiving the formality of credentials."
The young man started violently;
but not appearing to notice this,
Judge  Kneoland  went  on,   sharply:
"I remember that at the time you
told me frankly thut there was something connected with your former
life which caused you to draw a
curtain over the pnst, and that your
aim henceforth would be to learn to
forget it. I paid no attention to
thoso words then, coming from the
lips of the young mun whom I had
just made my private secretary; but
having come from the lips of tho
man who now asks nie for my young
daughter's hand in marriage, they
assume grave significance."
Roger Glendenning's face paled to
nn ashen hue. He tried to speak, but
the words died away on his lips,
leaving no sound. This and tho
trembling of the arm, which leaned
more heavily still against the mantel,  betrayed his deep emotion.
For nn instant the room seemed
to whirl around him and the golden
sunlight outside to suddenly darken
ar.d I  tve the earth black  as Hades.
Confess ll " secret of his past life!
Great Ood! il the old judge hud but
nsked anything else of him! To confess would mean the Iobs of Olive
just as surely as though death itself
toro her from him. And he loved the
girl so. And for her soke would he
dare draw back the curtain which
shut out the world from that terrible
secret? No; it would be far less
cruel to tear the living, boating
heart from his bosom and lay it bare
before the Judge's keen, cold, merciless scrutiny. Was there no other way
to satisfy him?
At this all-important moment the
offlce boy entered with a card. Judge
Kneeland took it, glanced at it, and
"Kindly retire into my private
room," he said, waving his hand toward his secretary. "This party may
detain me something like an hour;
then I will send for you, and you
shall tell me that which I have asked you."
Roger Glendenning bowed and
turned away, staggoring rather than
walking into the inner room. For
some moments he paced slowly to
and fro, his arms folded over his
chest, a prey to the most conflicting
hopes, doubts, and fears that ever
wrung a mun's heart.
It wns quite true thnt he had never told beautiful Olive Knecland in
so many words that he loved her,
but surely she must have seen it in
his devotion, in his every look, act,
and  word.
He quite believed thnt the wholo
world must see how he loved her,
how sho filled every crevice of his
life and  tho.'jahts. He  loved hor   _s
ne naa never lovea any living creature in his life before, and so strong
grew his adoration for her day by
day that he trembled for himself,
wondering how it would end.
The men of his race had all been
stalwart and handsome gentlemen,
philosophers and poets, and it was
equally true that most of them
had been strangely unfortunate in
love. It was their curse, and moro
than once it had led to a bitter
Knowing this, Roger Glendenning
had studiously avoided the society of
all women, lest the arrow which
might havo a poisoned tip should
pierce his heart. But from the first
moment his eyes had fallen upon the
face of Olive Kneeland, his resolution and his prudence were scattered
headlong to the winds.
It must be said, in his justification, that he fought hard for tho
mastery over his rebellious heart.
But fate was too much for him.
"Whatever is to be, will be," was
clearly exemplified in his case; and
a pair of sweet, serious blue eyes
were his undoing.
He kept his secret guarded so
carefully that not even his brother,
two j)ears younger than himself, and
who' had for years shared all his
thoughts, knew of this great, overpowering love that filled his heart
for Judge Knecland's (air young
For his brother Oscar would warn
him to beware of love, for it had always been the curse of their race.
Roger Olendenning was startled
rudely from his reverie by the office
door being flung violently open, and
his brother Oscar, hatless, and with
a (ace pale as death, sprung into tho
room, sinking down into the nearest chair, trembling like an aspen
"Hush!" he cried. "You need not
ask me what is the matter. I—I—am
going to tell you. I—I—am going to
make a clean breast of tbe whole affair and throw myself on your
mercy. For the love of God, don't go
back on me, Roger!"
"What have you done now?" asked
Roger Glendenning, sternly. "Yes,
make a clean breast of your difficulty, and if I can help you I will do
it, although you've drawn pretty
heavily on me for money of late, and
wouldn't work to make any for
The -young man rose unsteadily to
his feet and looked about him with
bloodshot eyes, to make quite suro
they were alone.
"Listen, Roger," he muttered, in a
hoarse whisper. "I—I—have been
guilty of forgery. I—I—forged Judge
Knecland's name to a noto for a
thousand dollars, two months ago,
closely imitating your writing and
your signature, and it falls due today—to-day. Ab God hears mc, Roger, I thought I should have the money to tako it up, and no one would
ever know,  ever find out.
"Don't look at me like that, Hog-
er. Don't forgot I am your only brother, and in dire trouble, but listen
to the rest, and tell me whut to do.
Only this morning I proposed marriage to tho judge's lovely daughter,
Olive, and—and—«■*».> nccpntoj uie."

Canadian Wins Distinction.
Among the Canadian educationists
who have won distinction ln th— United
States ls John Davidson Lawson, professor of common and International law
and dean of the law department of the
University of Missouri at Columbia, Mo.
Judge Lawson was born at Hamilton,
Ont., March 29, 1852. At Hamilton
Collegiate Institute he received his earlier education, graduating subsequently
from Trinity College, Toronto, with tho
degree of B. C. L. He ls also an LL.D
of the University of Missouri.' In 1890
he was elected a Judge of the Civil
Court of New Jersey, and for several
years was editor and later proprietor of
The Central Law Journal of St. Louis.
He ls best known ln the United States,
however, as an author and acknowledged authority on legal subjects, of which
he has written voluminously. A few of
his publications follow: "Contracts of
Common Carriers," "The Power of Usages and Customs," "Hints of Advocacy," "Concordance of Words and
Phrases," "Expert and Opinion Evidence," "Leading Cases Simplified,"
"Presumptive Evidence," "Insanity as a
Defence," "Defences to Crime" (five
volumes), "Rights, Remedies and Practice," "American Law of Bailments,"
"Cases on Personal Property." Judge
Lawson has also been for many years
one of tha best known contributors to
United States Journals of law and Jurisprudence. During the World's Fair at
St. Louis he was president Of Uie Missouri Bar Association.
Useful For Slating.
A local gentleman recently had cause
to complain about the quality of the
coal supplied to him, every load of the
mineral containing about ono hundredweight of stone and slate.
Determined to put a stop to the barefaced swindle, when the next ton of
coal arrived adulterated as usual, he
said to the driver: "Take it back; I'll
bave no more from your master."
Later the coal merchant met his customer ln the street, and asked, him
pmnl-binnk why he had lost his custom.
"Don't worry, you'll get lt bacn
again," replied the gentleman, promptly. "I have commenced to build, and as
soon as . ly houses are ready for slating I'll give you an order."
Like Vcnnn and For Like Cause, It Is
Row * Dead World.
Mercury Is a body devoid, practically lf not absolutely, of air, of water
and of vegetation. Consequently it is
Incapable of supporting auy of those
higher organisms which we know as
living beings. Its surface ls a vast
desert It ls rough rather than smooth.
Whether this roughness be due to
mountains proper or to craters we are
too far away from lt to be able
yet to say. Tbe latter Is the more
probable. Over the greater part of Its
surface change either diurual or seasonal Is unknown. Three-eighths of Its
surface is steeped In perpetual glare,
three-eighths shrouded ln perpetual
gloom, while the remaining quarter
slowly turns between the two. Tbe
planet Itself, as a world, ls dead.
Interesting as Mercury thus proves
to be, the Interest as regards the planet Itself Is of a rather corpselike character. Less deterrent perhaps is the
Interest It possesses as a part of the
life history of the solar system, for
tidal friction, the closing act In the
cosmic drama, bas brought It where it
is. The machine has run down.
Whether It ever supported life upon ita
surface or not, the power to do so has
now forever passed away. Like Venns
and for like cause, lt is now a dead
world. And lt was the flrst thus to
reach the end of Ita evolutionary career, earlier to do so than Venus, Inasmuch as tidal action was very much
greater upon It than on Venus and consequently produced its effect more
quickly. Mercury bas long been dead.
How long, measured by centuries, we
cannot say, but practically for a very
long time. Venus must have become
so comparatively recently. Both, however, now have finished their course
and have In a most literal sense entered Into their rest.
Rot to Know This Island Is Rot to
Know Greece.
There are some lands which have always laid a spell upon the mind, upon
tbe Imagination, upon the heart Greece,
above all other countries, has entranced
the mind. The imagination bas ever
loved the east—Egypt the Indies, forgotten Asia, the almost as mysterious
Asia of today. For most of us the
home land ls the country of the heart;
for many, lt may be, It Is Palestine,
where was lighted the flre at whlcb
the hearts of Incalculable millions are
still warmed. Others are content to
say wlt_ Emerson in the fine essay on
"Heroism," "Tbat country Is the fairest
.which Is Inhabited by the noblest
minds." But above all other lands,
there ls one which has at once impressed the mind, tbe imagination and the
heart of western peoples. When a famous poet declared that on his heart
would be found engraved tbe word
Italy the words voiced tbe emotion of
a multitude In every country of Europe and In the great northern continent oversea.
To see Sicily, tbe old "Garden of th*
Sun," as the poets have loved to call lt,
Is not to see Italy, though there may be
a measure of truth lu Goethe's remark
tbat not to know Sicily Is not to know
Italy. In a seuso oue might more truly say of Sicily that not to know lt Is

Flayers That Kick.
It Is said Tim Hurst, baseball umpiret
boxing referee and champion story teller of the diamond, was intended by bis
parents for the undertaking business,
but his inherent sense of humor made
that ont of the question. Tlm Is said
to have tried to make a success ot that
trade, but he was utterly unnble to
maintain that serious expression so
necessary in a successful director of
funerals, and be was compelled to retire from that branch of human endeavor. Then he turned his attention
to tbe field of sports, aud in baseball,
boxing, bicycling and other branches
he found a complete vent for his talents and his ability as a raconteur.
Hurst has tbe Ideal comedy face.
Had be been put on the stage he.could
not bave failed to make a hit ln comedy roles, as one look at bis face Is
■nre to provoke a smile, aud when he
begins to talk in the dry, droll manner
for which he Is noted no one but a
stole can withstand bis humor.
There is no man connected with tha
game of baseball today wbo can relate
more humorous Incidents of the ball
field and tell them with such mirth
provoking effect as the little umpire,
who is one of the features of the pennant race of the American league. As
an umpire Hurst has bad a long and
busy career ln both the National and
American leagues. Wherever the game
of baseball ls known there also is
known Tim Hurst He has umpired
ln every big town from the Atlantic to
the Pacific, and he bas told his stories
In every hamlet which boasts of a ball
Hurst Is a pudgy little fellow, below
medium height, with sandy hair, twinkling blue eyes and a ruddy complexion that flames wben he begins to
evolve something humorous. He is
known to every ball player of prominence ln the country, and very few of
the leading players bave had no experiences with tbe man who Imposes a
penalty with a humorous twinkle of
the eye that takes half the sting away
from the punishment He never permits himself to get out of temper on
the ball field. No matter how serious
tbe situation or bow exasperating the
offenses of the players, he always manages to surmount tbe difficulty with a
quip or an epigram.
His method of dealing with a kicking
player ls unique. If a player advances
from the field Hurst will go swiftly to
meet blm.
"Where are.you going, Mr. Jones?"
the umpire will Inquire.
"Coming to see you," Is the response.
"Ab, well, Mr. Jones," Hurst will
continue, "In that event you may keep
right ou to the bench."
Tbe player invariably returns to his
position. When a player Is unpleasantly persistent in reiterating bis opinio that a hit is a foul or fair, as the
case may be, Hurst will drawl, "Very
well, my dear boy, Just bring the fonl
line ln here and let me look at it"—

Victoria's First White Woman.
The colony of Victoria, Australia, is
still so youthful that the first white
woman who set foot upon its soil, Mrs.
Stephen George Henty, has only just
died. She was born at Stokesgy, England, In 1816, and went with her mother to Western Australia, where at tbe
age of twenty she married a Swan
river pioneer, Mr. Henty. Soon afterward tbey moved to Tasmania, and
thence Balled in a small vessel which
reached the bay at Portland one Sunday night In June, 1836. In the moonlight Mrs. Henty was carried ashore
through the surf and thus achieved the
distinction of being Victoria's first
white woman, as her son, born In August, 1837, was the first white male
native of tbe colony.

Vitality to Every Organ of the Body
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Suicide, Insanity, falling sickness,'
paralysis: These are some of the re:'
lults of worn-out nerves. No one
would neglect a disease so dreadful
l.i Its results as nervous exhaustion If
the danger were only realized with
the first symptoms.
The time to begin the restoration
of the nerves by the use of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food is when you find yourself unable to sleep at nights, suffering from headaches or neuralgic
paius, Indigestion or weak heart action.
Loss of flesh and weight, growing
weakness and debility, a tendency to
neglect the duties of the day, gloomy
forebodings for the future, are other
indications of depleted nerves.
You cannot liken Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food to any medicine you ever used.
It is a nerve vitallzer and tissue-builder of exceptional power.
Naturally and gradually It rekindles
life in the nerve cells and forms new
red corpuscles ln the blood—the only
way to thoroughly cure nervous disorders.
Miss   Lena   Hlebert,    Lowe Farm,
Man., writes::—"I had suffered for
two years with dizzy spells, pains in
the back, cold hands and feet, nervousness, Jerking of the limbs, sore
tongue, soreness of arms and shoulders, and general exhaustion. About
seven months ago 1 became so nervous that I could not rest or sleep, and
could not do the least bit of work
without suffering dreadfully from
pains in the back. I could hardly
walk, could eat very little, and felt
that people were nlways watching my
body twitch.
"I tried several medicines with little effect, and was a mere skeleton of
skin and bone about to give up in despair when I heard about Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food, and began using it. I
have used in all fourteen boxes of
tnls preparation, and it has built me
up until I am now strong and well
again. Dr. Cuase's Nerve Food has
done me a world of good, and I feel
that I cannot recommend it too highly to persons who suffer as I have."

Bo much may be done toward beautifying rooms by selecting suitable pictures, yet so much depends upon the
proper hanging of them that it ts no
wonder the result Is not always satisfactory.
Indeed, tbe banging of a picture
mokes lt a great success or a disastrous failure as a decoration. Where
there Is a blaze of light, for example,
either from windows In the daytime or
lamps at nlgbt, lt is uiiw'se to bang
pictures whose colors are vivid, and,
on the otber band, those same pictures
perceptibly brighten dark corners, hallways, etc.
Small pictures should be grouped.

Two  shall  be  born  the whole  wide

And  speak    in    different    tongues,
and have no thought
Each   of   the   other's   being,   and  no

And   these   o'er  unknown   seas,  to
unknown  lands,
Shall  cross, escaping wreck,  defying

And   bend   each   wandering   step   to

That, one  day  out  of  darkness  they
shall meet
And   read   life's   meaning   in   each
other's eyes.
And   two   shall   walk   some   narrow
way of life,
So nearly side by side that should
one turn
Ever so little space to left or right,
They  needs  must    stand    acknowledged face to face;
And yet with wistful eyes that never
With   groping   hands     that    never
clasp, and lips
Calling in vain  to  cars    that    never
They   seek   each   other   all   their
weary days, , .
And   die   unsatisfied.      And   this   is
is only i'>00 n  -^ear.

Heart's Chicago American, of & recent issue contained the following editorial, which has created so little comment on the part of the press generally because of the fact that it shows
a spirit of fairness which does not always characterize the American's editorials.    It says:
"It would be a misfortune to the
country if the big papers in the big
cities should interfere seriously with
the publication of the valuable weekly newspapers. Decidedly it is on
these the welfare of the country very
largely depends. The metropolitan
daily cannot possibly know the needs
of the various localities and small cities. Only the local newspapers can
protect local needs and influence local
opinion. Of course we arc glad to
have as many people as possible read
tile Chicago American in the big cit-'
ies and in the little cities. But we
hope that in every small town and in
every village there will be enough
intelligent and public spirit on the part
of the inhabitants to support earnestly and enthusiastically the local weekly paper, giving encouraging approbation and a good living to the local editor, who alone can represent and <lt~
fend justice and public spirit among
his neighbors. That man. is unfortunate who cannot afford to take two
newspapers at today's prices. He who
can only one paper, in our opinion,
should display his sense of duty to liis
locality by taking the local newspaper."
