TROVE had come to Hillsborough
that very hour he passed the
Golden Spool. In him a touch
of dignity had sobered the
careless eye of youth. He was Indeed
a comely young man, his attire fashionable, his form erect. Soon he was
on the familiar road to Robin's Inn.
In the air was an odor of the harrowed
eurth, and up in the hills a shout of
greeting came out of field or garden as
Trove went by. It was a walk to remember, and when he had come near
the far side of Pleasant valley he
could see Polly waving ber hand to
him at the edge of the maple grove.
"Supper Is waiting," said she merrily as she came to meet him. "There's
blueberries and biscuit and lots of nice
"I'm hungry," said he. "But first,
dear, let us enioy love and kisses."
Then by the lonely road he held her
close to him. and each could feel the
heartbeat of tbe other, aud for quite a
moment speech would have been most
idle aud Inadequate.
"Now tlie promise, roily," said he
Boon. "I go not another step uutil I
have your promise to be my wife."
"You do not think I'd let oue treat
me that wuy unless I expected to marry blm, do you?" said Polly as sbe
fussed with a ribbon bow, her face red
with blushes. "You've mussed me all
"I'm to be a teacher In the big
school, nnd If you were willing we
could be married soon."
"Oh, dear!" said she, Blghlng and
looking up at hlin with a smile. "I'm
too huppy to think." Then followed
another moment of silence, in which
the little god, if he were near them,
must have smiled.
"Won't you mime the day now?" he
"Oh, let's keep that for the nexl
Chapter," said she. "Don't you know
supper Is waiting?"
"It's all like those tales 'to be continued In our next,'" he answered, with
a laugh.
Then they walked slowly up the long
hill arm iu arm.
"How very grand you look!" sold
she proudly. "Did you see the governor?"
"Y'es, but he can do nothing now.
It's the only cloud In the sky."
"Denr old man!" said Polly. "We'll
find n way to help him."
"But he wouldn't thank us for help—
there's the truth of It," said Trove
quickly. "He's happy and content
Here is n letter that came today:
"Dear Sidney—Think of all I have said
to thee, an', lf yo remember well, boy, lt
-will bear thee up! Were I Indeed, as ye
believe, drinking the cup o' bitterness for
thy sake, know ye not the law will make
it sweet for me? After all I have said to
thee, are ye not prepared? Is my work
wasted? Is tlsp seed fallen upon the
roeks? And, if ye hold to thy view, consider—would ye rob the dark world o' the
light o' sacrifice? 'Nay,' ye will answer.
Then I say, 'If ye would give me peace,
go to thy work, boy, and cease to waste
thyself with worry and foolish wandering.'
"Somehow It puts me to shame,"
said Trove as he put the letter in his
pocket. "I'm bo far beneath him. I
shall obey and go to work and pray
for the speedy coming of God's justice."
"It's the only thing to do," Bald she.
"Sidney, I hope now 1 hnve a right to
ask If you know wbo ls your father?"
"1 believe blm to be dead."
"Dead!" There wae a note of surprise In the word.
"I know not even his name."
"It ls all very strange," said Polly.
In a moment she added, "I hope you
will forgive my mother if she seemed
to doubt you."
"I forgive all," said the young man.
"I know It was hurd to believe me innocent"
"And Impossible to believe you
guilty. She was only waiting for more
The widow and her two boys came
out to meet them.
"Mother, behold this big man! He Is
to be my husband." The girl looked up
at him proudly.
"And my son?" said Mrs. Vaughn,
with a smile, as she kissed blm. "You've
lost no time."
"Oh, I didn't Intend to give up so
soon," said Polly, "but—but the supper
would have been ruined."
"It's now on the table," said MrB.
"I've news for you," sold Polly as
they were sitting down. "Tunk has reformed."
"He must have been busy," said
Trove, "and he's ruined his epitaph."
"His epitaph ?"
"Yes; that one Darrel wrote for him:
'Here Jigs Tunk. Ogjruve, whpre Is thy
victor..*?- *
"Tunk has one merit. He never deceived any oue but himself," said the
"Horses have run away with him,"
Trove continued.  "His character Is like

it broken buggy, and his Imagination—
that's the unbroken colt. Every day
for a long time the coit has run nwny
with the wagon, tipping it over and
dragging it iu the ditch until every bolt
Is loose and every spoke rattling and
every wheel awry."
"He walks better and complains
less." the widow answered.
"Often he stands very straight and
walks like you," said Tolly, laughing.
"He thinks you are the ouly great
man." so spoke the widow.
"Gone from one illusion to another,"
said Trove.
"I do not understand you," said Pol-
y. "Now, we heard of the shot and
ron—how you came by them and how
one night yoa threw them Into the
river at Hillsborough. That led perhaps to most of your trouble. I'd like
to know what moral law you broke
when you flung them Into the river."
"A great law," Trove answered, "but
one hard to phrase."
"Suppose you try."
"The innocent shall have no fear,"
said he. "Until then I had kept the
There was a little time of silence.
"If you watch a coward you'll see a
most unhappy creature." It was Trove
who spoke. "Darrel said once, 'A coward Is tlie prey of all evil and the mark
of thunderbolts.'"
"I'll not admit you're a coward,"
were the words of Polly.
"Well," said he, rising, "I had fear
of only one thing—that I should lose
your love."
Reaching home next day, Trove
found that Allen had sold Phyllis. The
mare had been shipped away.
"She brought a thousand dollars,"
said his foster father, "and I'll divide
the profit with you."
It was a June day, and Trove was at
Robin's Inn. A little before noon Polly
and he and the two boys started for
Brier Dale. They waded the flowering
meadows In Pleasant valley, crossed a
great pasture and came under the forest roof. As tbey cume to Brier road
the boys found n nest of hornets. It
hung on a bough above the roadway.
Soon Paul had flung a stone that broke
the nest open. Hornets began to buzz
arouud ttiem, nnd all ran for refuge to
a thicket of young firs. In a moment
they could hear a horse coming at a
slow trot. Trove peered through the
bushes. He could see Ezra Tower, that
man of scornful piety, on a white
horse. Trove shouted a warning, but
with no effect. Suddenly Tower broke
his long silence, und the horse began
to run.
"He did speak to the hornets," said
"Swore, too," said Paul.
Near sunset they came Into Brier
Dale. Mary Allen met them nt the
"Mother, here Is my future wife,"
sold Trove proudly.
Then ruddy lips of youth touched the
faded cheek of the good woman.
"We shall be married ln September,"
sold Trove, tossing his bat ln the air.
"We're going to have a grand time,
and, mind you, mother, no more hard
work for you."
(To Be Continued)

given in Topeka, which will compel

High Sounding Names Mean "Don't
Know" or "I Forget."
We might spend an entertaining half
hour over many a line atlas, sheet lf we
were able to detect the unconscious humor sometimes displayed, even iu conspicuous type, says the New York Suu.
On maps of Gen»an East Africa the
word "Sougo" has appeared for several
years as the name of one of the native
countries. We uow learn that Songo
is not a geographical name, but that
it conveys exactly the same Idea that
we express wben we fail to recall the
name of some object and so call it
"thingumbob." Undoubtedly an explorer had asked the name of the country from his guide, wbo had forgotten
it and had escaped the difficulty by tlie
easy Intellectual process of calling It
Songo. We shnll stand on firm grouud
if we call that fair and populous land
Losailik in future.
A mouutaiu iu that same region was
Introduced to the rest of the world under the name "Atoriglni," a dignified
appellation nnd pleasaut to the ear.
But the next editions of the maps must
blot It out and substitute something
that sounds barbaric, for "Atoriglni"
means simply "I forget." It was another case of lapse of memory ou the
part of a guide.
It Is gratifying to hear that one African place name Is to be wiped off the
maps, not so much because it Is ludicrously inaccurate ns because it is so
'long that It interferes with otber information wheu printed on a small
scale map. One day an explorer asked
n native the name C***kl certain large
settlement. The miw&id not understand the question, but took the opportunity to remark, "01otoiboiologun.\a,"
which meaus, "Y'jur servant has gone
on ahead." Down weut the expression
on the traveler's map as the name of
tbe town.
Cuba's Forts Are Now Show Places.
The forts of Cuba are interesting
from a historic point of view us well
us for the purpose to wliich they have
beeu put since the establishment of the
republic. During the early days of
Spanish rule these forts were sometimes culled upon to defend the isluud
from foreign invasion uud often from
pirates, bull duriug the lust fifty years
they were generally used as prisons
for the custody of natives who may
have violated the law or incurred the
displeasure of the authorities. Today
they are mere show places, although
some ure occupied by the constabulary
of tbe island, who are known tis tbe
rural guard. These peace officers were
organized in 1S99 and were ehielly recruited from the ranks of the Cubau
army. Many of those young men are
now stationed at forts where their fathers met death in their struggle for
liberty.—Mrs. C. R. Miller ln Leslie's
Peers' v, no  _ive Aoi"oad.
There are three British peers, if not
more, who belong to families who
have for generations been settled in
distant countries, and who have practically had nothing to do with Britain for many years. Indeed, some
of these peers have never even set
foot  in   England   at  all.
There is, for instance, the Earl of
Seafield. Early in the last century the
then earl emigrated to New Zelnand
and married there. His sons have
never seen their father's native land.
The family has remained, and today James Grant Ogilvie of New Zealand, 30 years of age, and also married, is the undoubted Earl of Sea-
field, though he never uses the title,
but works hard with his hands to earn
his living, just like any new-comer into the colony.
Then there is Baron Fairfax of Cameron, whose forefathers went out to
Virginia long ago. The present lord
wns bom in America in 1870, and certainly never used his rightful title,
nor even visited England until he was
well past 30.
Even more striking is the case of
Baron Aylmer, who is a Canadian in
every way, for both*Tie and his father
were born in Canada. Lord Aylmer is
practically unknown in the United
Charming Account of a Visit Paid to
Strange People.
In a recent number of The Tour du
Monde, Mle. Menant, the well-known
authority on Parsee life and customs,
has a charming account of a vie.' pa, J
to Mahableshwar. She appears to
know all about this lovely plauau,
and describes the hill tribes, the
Kolis, Kumbis, Dhongurs, and
Dhavars with kindly enthusiasm.
While recognizing their defects, she
does not share the old Hindu prejudice against the wild folk of the hills.
Describing the marriage customs of
the Dhangurs she says:
"When they want to ascertain the
favorable moment for the performance
of the rites (in case the Brahmin is
not able to consult the sacred books),
the young couple are made to sit before the door of a hut from which a
cow and then its calf are driven forth.
If the calf runs to its mother on the
right of the seated pair, the ceremony can proceed. If, on i'he contrary, it passes them on the left, the
proceedings must be suspended, and
the trial must be begun over again.
Some grains of rice thrown over the
young people, a ring passed over the
bride's finger, and they are indissolu-
bly united!
Hardships  In  Forest.
Mile   Menant recognizes the peculiar hardships to which these people
of  the  hills   aud  the  forebt  are  exposed.
"Life is hard for these poor creatures," she says. "Theirs is an incessant struggle against poverty and
the elements. Their food, composed
of the simple products of the forest,
is rarelv sufficient. During the long
months of the monsoon, when the
skies close down on the mountains,
and when the wind shakes the trees
of the forest, what is their lot? You
have onlv to visit the miserable huts
into which they crowd with their
cattle to understand the decrepitude
of the aged, withered nnd wrinkled,
men and women alike, with lean
shanks and deformed limbs. Between
the baby aboriginal, lively and joyous in his innocent nudity, and tho
hoary, hairy old grandfather, b-nt
and impotent, it is easy to guess the
long years of labor that intervene, and
the ravages and inclemency of tlie
seasons. The notions of good and
evil, as we understand them, are
floating and vague in their minds. In
their hearts and on their lips is the
eternal excuse of primitive man-
human weakness, the sole cause of
sin. Perlv-ips that is the best excuse
of all. They wilfully avoid the civilizing influences of the mission and
the school.
Fear the Evil Eye.
You meet the young ones, laughter
fn their eyes, their ready tongues
prattling some picturesque jargon,
some dialect of Mahrathi or Hindustani. But do not press them too
closely with questions, do not even
look at them too long. For tbey
are imbued with quaint old-world superstitions; they are haunted by the
fear of the evil eye, especially for
their children, cunning and light of
foot as little satyrs, ready to disappear with a sudden bound into tlie
forest thickets.
"Often in our walks our only guides
were their womenfolk, and we followed them without hesitation, sure
of being led aright. They munched
jungle berries, they laughed and jested, and cast defying- glances at one
another as they leapt from rock to
rock. But a single incautious word
would have put tlie gay, gentle things
to flight, and what a pity that would
have  been!"
Little Dainties to Pique the Appetittf
at Afternoon Affairs,
Since the custom of taking afternoon
tea is not only well established ln this
country, but now in diiuger of becoming an untimely feast it Is astonishing
to note the numerous llttle dainties
and extra trimmings wbicli are being
served to pique and delight the appetite, lt ls no longer merely a cup of
ten and f. slice of thin bread and butter that may be expected between 4
and 5:30 o'clock. Jam has been added
to the list and often hot Scotch scones
and English muffins. Beside the tea
table proper there stands usually a sort
of rack table, pyramidal iu shape anil
having three shelves, one nbove the-
other and .-ound like plates., Each one-
ls covered wltb attractive china holding some fascinating uiscuit or cuke,
iftiiii of one or two kinds ls suggested!
In between them, and after the hostess:
has ascertained which jam and biscuit
her guest prefers she spreads It fir
him herself before passing it on a small!
plate. This little attention appear-*
very gracious.
Among the biscuits those of ''health
food" reputation nre often found and
the Jam is spread over tbem to add to.
their somewhat questionable tnstiuess.
Other hostesses have lino, small, flat
wafers of whole wheat covered with
chocolate In their own kitchens before
serving. They arc then above reproach to pass with tea. The biscuit
itself is digestible, the chocolate tasty
und nourishing. Biscuits covered with
cheese, on the contrary, while highly
ngreenbl_. to tbe taste, are avoided by
those bypercareful about their diet.
Strawberry jnm Is undoubtedly the
favorite for spreading on English muffins. Blackberry jam or gunva Is
chosen to spread on the health food
biscuits, especially those made of graham cr whole wheat Scotch scones
are spread only through the middle
with fresh butter. These scones uie
very similar to old fashioned soda biscuits and are invariably served hot
In size they are little larger than ._
quarter of a dollnr. The number that
some peop'e can mnke disappear Is
therefore readily countenanced.
Wafer toast finds a place at afternoon

Under a Spell.
An English lady has become possessed of a mysterious necklace,
which has brought her persistent ill-
fortune since the day she received it
as a gift.
The necklace, which is composed ,,l
pearls and turquoises, has a curious
history. Originally it belonged to
the Maharanee of Cooch. While it
was in her possession she was robbed
of a quantity of valuable jewelery.
Her husband, the Maharajah, also lost
some of his best racing ponies by
death and breakdown.
At last, matters reached such a
crisis that it was determined to nsk
the advice of a "wise man" or pundit. His advice was startling. He
declared that the necklace was to
blame—and that it brought bad fortune to everyone who possessed it.
He prescribed a change of ownership
and a voyage across the Bea for the
necklace, in order that the spell
might be broken.
Accordingly, the beautiful string of
precious stones waa given as a present to nn English lady. Since then
good fortune has returned to the
Maharajah and his wife, while bad
lock has persistently dogged the footsteps of the new owner of the necklace.

A Series of Articles Describing their Lives, their Alma
and their Influence.
J. J.
Late   Editor   and   Proprietor   of   the
Alameda   Dispatch
Mr. J. J. Heaslip, whc has recently
disposed of his newspaper, the Alameda Dispatch, and retired, temporarily at least, from active newspaper
work, is a striking example of the
successful western publisher. He belongs to that rare class of men who
enter the journalistic field late in a
business career, and without previous
training are enabled, through a combination of latent literary ability and
keen business insight, to conduct a
newspaper with every degree of success.
The subject of this sketch is a
native of Ontario, his birthplace being near the town of Peterboro. His
early education was secured at the
public school of his native town, and
was later supplemented by a course
in a business college at Toronto.
Commencing life as a farmer, Mr.
Heaslip was attracted by the glowing
possibilities that awaited the settler
in the west, and in 1881 he made his
first trip to the prairie province. At
that time Portage la Prairie was the.
railway terminus, and leaving the
train at this point, he travelled
through several districts to obtain an
accurate idea of the quality of the
land and to secure information about
the country before returning east.
Tlie following spring (1882) he decided to move to the west, and coming out with a party of fifteen settlers, he reached Brandon on the 16th
of April, 18*2. After leaving Brandon
the party travelled by ox team, the
objective point being adjacent to the
confluence of the Moose Creek and
Souris River. After a leisurely trip
made for the purpose of looking over
the country, Mr. Heaslip finally
settled nt a point four miles west of
the present town of Alameda, lt
was tlie life of the pioneer in those
dnys, for there were no other settlers
within a radius of 100 miles and the
nearest postoffice was Brandon. In
the hitter purt of 1882 the railway
was extended to Moosom'in, which
was the wheat market for tlie next
ten years. Of the original party who
came west with Mr. Heaslip, only
three or four returned to the east.
Tlie rest remained and are now prosperous residents of the district. But
one "death, and that recently, has
occurred to diminish the number.
Land in this district was not in
the market in the year 1882, and -n
order to make homestead entries the
settlers had to go to Regina. Mr.
Heaslip returned to Ontario for the
winter, came back the following
spring, and continued to reside in
the country until he had completed
his homestead duties and acquired
his patent. Owing to the great distance   from a   railway,  Mr.  Heaslip

then considered the advisability of
removing nearer to some point where
was offered facilities for the shinment
of grain. He accordingly took another homestead, which was at that
time permissible, and remained in
the country for the three years necessary for the completion of the
regulation duties. Although receiving assurances of a railway from
year to year, the road was not completed to Oxbow until the fall of
1891, and did not reach Alameda until   the   year  following.
Abandoning work on the farm, Mr.
Heaslip opened a lumber yard in
Oxbow in 1891, and in i892 established s hardware and implement
husiness in Alameda. The first shipment of freight to be forwarded
west of Oxbow was consigned to Mr.
Heaslip and consisted of two carloads
of lumber. With this material he
erected the first building in Alameda,
which is now occupied by Messrs.
Cook & Deyell, hardware merchants.
Shortly after becoming established in Alameda Mr. Heaslip sold his
lumber business in Oxbow, and after
a successful career, in both the hardware and implement business, these
were also disposed of, and a private
bank opened.
It was in July, 1893, that Mr. Heaslip entered the field of journalism,
and acquired the Alameda Dispatch.
In the same manner in which he had
thrown his talents and energies into
the previous enterprises with which
'te hed been connected, Mr. Heaslip
at once entered with zest into the
work of producing a newspaper that
would reflect in the truest sense the
growing importance of the town and
district it served. In typographical
finish and mechanical make-up the
Dir patch was brought to the highest
point of excellence. The publisher
was prompt in the introduction of
improved methods and devices. The
newspaper office was thoroughly
equipped with machinery of the most
modern pattern-, which included a
type-setting machine and high grade
presses. This resulted in the production of a paper that was neat and
tidy in style of print and appearance.
While Mr. Heaslip is a Conservative
u. politics, the Dispatch has been
oonducted on strictly independent
lines, although never neutral.
Mr. Heaslip has been a notary public and justice of the peace for fifteen years, and for the past three
years has seived at the head of municipal affairs. He is president of
the Crown Lumber & Coal company,
with yards at Alameda and Fro-
bisher, and also conducts a private
bank, where a general banking business is transacted.
With characteristic enterprise, Mr.
Heaslip installed the telephone system in Alameda, which gives a satisfactory service and now has connections with the leading business
and private residences in town. He
also installed the first acetylene
plant in Alameda.
Mr. Heaslip has always taken a
keen interest in all healthy, manly
sports. He is an enthusiastic patron
of hockey and lacrosse, and a large
shareholder in the local skating
rink. Last summer he purchased a
motor car, and motoring forms his
chief diversion during the summer
months. He has become familiarized
with the mechanical parts of the
machine to a detail, and is thoroughly conversant with the principles
underlying  propulsion.
Mr. Heaslip is a firm believer in
keeping in close touch with every
detail of the numerous enterprises
under his control, and this no doubt
is largely responsible for the success
that has invariably attended his business dealings. Every department of
his business is conducted on a system. He is withal courteous and affable in deportment, graceful in manner and hns an enviable reputation
for being thoroughly honorable in
nil his dealings. Convincing in argument, optimistic in view, Mr.
Heaslip is an entertaining conversationalist. He can discuss with freedom and ease a wide range of subjects, and is particularly well informed on the various matters pertaining to municipal work. In the
midst of his multifarious business
duties he finds tine to spend three
or four hours daily in his librnry,
and is consequently very widely read,
and keeps in close touch with the
leading questions of the day.
It is but natural to assume thnt
Mr. Heaslip haa a splendid residence.
His home is a large stone building,
the largest in fnct in the district,
nnd  is  beautifully  enclosed.
In religion Mr. Heaslip is a Presbyterian, is an elder in the church
and  one  of its  warmest  supporters.

Two Severe Cases of Nervous Prostration With Which
Doctors Could Do Nothing Cured By
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Mr. William Graham, Atwood,
'Ont., writes: "My wife had been ill
lor some time with nervous prostration, and we had two of the best doe-
tors we could get, but neither of them
<_lid her nny good. She gradually became worse, could not sleep, and lost
energy and interest in life. She was
nlmost giving up in despair, when a
Sriend advised a trial of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food.
"From the first box of this prepara-
4ion my wife used we noticed an improvement, and after using six boxes
she is completely cured, and as well
as ever she was—eats well and sleeps
well, and feels fully restored. I can-
mot sny too much in praise of this
valuable medicine, and am satisfied
that my wife owes her life to the use
of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food." This
cure is certified to by Mr. C. H. Mc-
Parlane, druggist, Atwood, Ont.
Mrs.    Alf.    Stevens,    Burgessville,
Oxford,  county,   writes:    "Two  years
ngo last November I was run down, |
and  did  not know what was wrong, i
I could not sleep or eat, and at last'
my nervous system gave way entire-1
ly, end I had to go to bed.   The doctor  told  me  I   hnd  nervous  prostration, and, though he doctored me for
some weeks, I did not get any better.
i    "I then    began    the    use   of    Dr.
i Chase's   Nerve   Food,   and    by    the
' time  I had  used six boxes    I    was
. completely   cured.    People   remarked
\ how well I looked, and I said, 'Yes,
I and  I feel well, that is the best of
| it, and Dr. Chase's Nerve Food did
I it.'"

- eases o* the nerves in the only nat-
| ural aim effective way—by enriching

""Quick !   A glnss of wine."
Everybody   stared,   but    his    wish
"was    complied    with,   and   Baptiste
swallowed at one gulp a glass of wine
poured out by the lady of the house,
■who  inquired  what  was  the  matter
with him.
""Oh, madame, I am dreadfully up-
_6t. That glass of wine has done me
good; it has brought me round. Only
think! I have just had the misfortune
*to break your two large dessert

Richness  ot Cobalt
A recent report received from the
superintendent of the Ontario-Quebec
Cobalt by Messrs. Gorinnly-Tilt &
Co. states that the shaft on No. 2
property has been sunk to a depth of
50 feet. The vein has continued to
widen with depth, and extremely
high  values  have  been  obtained.
The recent strike of native silver
on tlie adjoining properties has verified the opinion of leading mining
engineers that this property will soon
prove to be one of the richest in the
Cobnlt district.
Plans are already laid to sink a
depth of 150 feet, when it is expected
that very high values will be found.

An Old Proverb Verified Many Timet
and Oft.
"Never trouble trouble till trouble
troubles you" Is a very neat and very,
true proverb. II >w many of us almost court unhapiiiness by meeting it
halfway—nay. more, a large number
of us positively welcome it beoause it
gives us ti grievance aud we like to
feel like martyrs. There is u sort of
feeling of glorious heroism In suffering
"untold mental anguish" that tugs at
the heartstrings uml makes all the
world look black, especially when we
tnke a frletul Into our confidence ami
he or she condoles with us.
But we must all lenrn to keep our
troubles to ourselves and not tell tliem
to nil and sundry. True heroism lies
In patiently bearing our worries and
anxieties iu solitude. Bury your sorrow iu tbe depths of your owu heart.
Thing., thus securely covered are of
ten cured without a scar, but when
they are once published and confided
to meddling friends there Is uo end to
the trouble tltey may cause.
If your feelings are Injured, don't
brood over your poor wounded self
Rather pray for that poor misguided
sister who slighted you. Perhaps she
may bave doue so quite unwittingly
rerbnps somo of us have husbands,
brothers nnd sisters who are very unkind, who wound us cruelly by bitter
words, nngry retorts and much selfish
If tbls snd state of things existsi we
must keep It to ourselves even If It is
only for the sake of those who offend
us, for by taking nny one Into our confidence we must necessarily divulge to
our friends the shortcomings of our
fellows. To do this is adverse to all
laws of Christianity. We must be
charitable: we must patiently bear
with those who cause us stalls of pain:
we must nsk that their hearts be softened and thnt they may be brought to
see with a troef clear mind the misery
they bring to others by their nuruly
tongues. Rest assured that those who
utter bitter words nnd unkind critl
clsms have moments of regret and re-
morse and pangs of conscience. Were
the truth known, they actually suffer
far more than the recipients of their
hasty and ill Judged attacks.
After all. troubles nre transient
things, and when tbey are all passed
and sorrow Is outside the door whut a
comfort lt Is to say:
"No oue ever kuew until it wns over
wltb us."

They Pay Heed to Perfection of Details, Says an Authority.
M. Escofller. the grent chef, say men
are better cooks than women because
they watch trifles with thoroughness
and Insist npon having ail needed ingredients, while women will manage
with whatever they have at hand. The
average woman bas had always to
make out with what was handy and
has not had the management of the
purse strings. She bas uot cooked for
profit but from duty. When men cook
they nre either in camp or do it for a
lark to concoct some chafing dish
dainty they have had at a club or they
arc professional cooks.
Women in homes know the fallings
of their servants, and any house mother
will tell you that she has always taken
the overdone muffins nud tbe piece of
streaky cake, the nicked (.up and the
wing of the chicken to hide failures or
to make the family contented. Give
women of like Intelligence the same Incentive and the same training and supplies to do with and then see in time
what kind of cooks women will become.
Do not boll salted meats rapidly.
When cooking ham and tongue, the
ineatj after being washed and prepared,
should be placed lu cold water and
brought slowly to the__bolling point.
Let It bol. five "minutes, aud (hen let It
only slightly bubble up until the meat
Is tender.
Fresh meat, on the contrary, should
be placed In boiling water and then
boiled rapidly for five minutes. After
that It should lie kept below the boiling
point, "Just quivering." ns one authority
remarks, at one side of tbe saucepan
until the meat Is tender. Add salt to
meat when it Is about half cooked.
Indigo Seeds.
One difficulty In the raising of natn
nil ludlgo ls that the seed of the Java
plant does not usually germinate satis
fnctorily owing to Its possessing a "cu
tide" whicli ls Impermeable to water.
To remedy this lt bas been found advantageous to soak the seeds for hall
on hour ln concentrated sulphuric acid
and subsequently to wash with watei
very thoroughly before sowing. Good
seed treated ln this way has been
found to germinate to the ertent of 100
per cent.

the space between littered perhaps with
useless trash—trinkets with no value at
all, even from a curio collector's standpoint, and with no excuse certainly tor
breaking the beauty of the straight,
simple lines.
A bookcase Isn't the sort of thing
to be heaped with bric-a-brac. One or

pre-eminently a thing with a use to it—
that of holding your books—und when
it divides that honor with the questionable one of acting as a shelf to pile

Go Into some houses, tilled to overflowing with so-called "handsome"
pieces. You have to be careful where
you walk—there are fussy llttle chairs
here, and absurd little cabinets there—
not cabinets bought to hold treasured
curios, but got to look effective by virtue
of their gold paint and pink plush linings; their curios—an afterthought-
bought to fill them up as elaborately as
the overcrowded room they echo.
Sofa pillows—not piled In a comfortable confusion, but set importantly one
by one—are hopeless sort of affairs,
made of white or pink or yellow satin,
embroidered or painted In a way that

making tidies.
Hangings share the same general fate

enough for anywhere, and the simple
straight hanging a thing never by any
possibility Indulged in.
Carpets and paper and furniture clash
Inharmoniously—It's as though everything had a voice and was trying to
make Itself heard, high above the rest.
The worst of It all is that there ls absolutely no excuse for that sort of
thing—not even the excuse of economy.
For those frills and elaborate carvings
and upholstering and the other details
of the confusions are costly. Bad taste
ls made to pay!
And, on the otner side, there are no
two minds, when once the question is
fairly looked Into. The simpler types

A Laundry Hint
The first step ln pressing blankets
after the tedious process of washing, Is
to fold them evenly when they are perfectly dry, pulling them Into shape lf
one side or corner has become stretched.
Then cover with a clean sheet, place a
board on top and pile weights upon it,
leaving the blankets for a day or two to
"Iron" themselves.
tYLES that Clash
Keeping Old Letters    The Mine        The Stylish Gir'
SEVERAL yenrs ago It was quite a
fad for couples to be married
kneeling on cushions stuffed with
their old love letters. Whereat the
cynic and the victim of a breach of
pr mise suit alike ejaculated, "Amen!"
Aside from such bizarre practices,
however, many persons treasure for
years their old letters, love and otherwise. As to business letters, this is
undoubtedly a wise proceeding. It Is
well to have documentary evidence of
every business transaction, no matter
how small lt may be. In regard to
merely personal letters, a dissenting
opinion might be expressed. Often
they are of so very personal a character, that the best thing for all concerned Is to (---froy them as soon as
they are read and answered. But
where nothing of this sort exists, and
}?™ilftter_.is. merely a pleasant and
familiar chat, or a pleasant note of
thanks or good  wishes,  it ls often  a
fhn^t. ?leasre ln the years to come
},. ? at the time of receipt. Especlal-

A good way to keep letters ls to arrange them alphabetically, according
to the writer's name, and those of the
same writer according to date of re-
^iPt. Then, If divided into equal pills
and securely fastened, they are always
ready for reference of any sort. It Is
best, also, to keep all letters In one
box, as large as may be necessary

An Adaptation of the Separate Blouse
FOR several seasons the downfall of the lingerie waist
has been predicted, but
somehow it seemed to have
a faculty of bobbing up serenely
as one of l.ishion's favorites that
refused to be ousted. There is no
doubt about it now, however, thnt
the dainty batiste blouse—that fnsei-
nuting creation of handwork and
filmy lace—has been made to take
second place, at least for formal
Whnt has caused tliis downfall ?
Let us not nsk! "Le roi est''—if
not "niort," at least in a rapid decline. So long live the successor!
—the stylish net, lace, crape de
chine or chiffon blouses thnt will be
seen ut everv tea, reception, matinee or briilge party this "winter,
where the elaborate afternoon gown1
will be worn.
These' new blouses are not so
much to be used ns separate waists
as to form pnrt of a harmonious
and complete costume. We find the
most fragile materials made up with
trimmings of broadcloth, velvet or
the some fabric as the skirt and
jacket with which they are to be
There has been a gradual drifting
back to the whole costume for several seasons—a drifting that has
been more thun welcomed b.v the
woman of "too, too solid flesh," to
whom the sharp dividing line of
whito waist and dark skirt was a
constant nnd unpleasant reminder
of hor avoirdupois nnd lack of
inches. This winter it may, however,
be said to have finally arrived.
But you say, are not these net
waists white < What is the diffor-
enco between them and batiste or
Well, there is a difference, and a
marked one, as every one will acknowledge who has admired the
Stylish ami becoming effect of white
or cream net peeping out from
bands of velvet or silk or frotm a
slashed arrangement of cloth to
match a skirt. It is just the difference between a patchwork quilt and
a plain silk coverlet of eiderdown.
Frequently, too. the nets are dyed
to match the gown in color, in
which cose less of cloth or velvet is
required to make up a congruous
Besides the attractiveness, this
adaptation of the separate let waist
has the merit of economy. With
one of tliem the ordinary street
suit can be transformed into a
dressy honse gown by merely removing the jacket.
Tho designs shown are to lie worn
with cloth or velvet suits, either in
the house or under the coat.
Particularly charming is the upper one thot goes with a velvet
gown in tho new smoke-gray that
is so good this winter. The blouse
is of smoke-grav chiffon or crepo
de chine, with tiny accordion-pleated rulHes of the same nut on to sim-

J-ong Live the Wedding
THE season of brides Is with us once
more. Again blushing girls price
filmy white stuffs In the shops,
and embarrassed youths Inquire the
price of plain gold bands. The modern
bride, however, ls not quite bo enthusiastic over her ring as she ls over the
rest of the concomitants of this delightful business of getting married. Sho
has been her own mistress, and completely oo, too long quite to relish this
ancient badge of servitude. Accordingly she Insists on tho very thinnest and
narrowest ring procurable, and even
then feels a trifle uncomfortable.
Why doesn't sho equalize matters by
following the pretty German custom of
exchange? Surely he Is Just as much
entitled to a ring as she Is, and. besides,
she will then have the satisfaction of
feeling that Instead of symbolizing a
medieval and unreal submission, the
band only tells how they two are bound
together *™ love—surely a prettier
By all moans let us alter the marriag«
service In this one particular, that thi
"with this ring I thee ived" may be
spoken by both bride and bridegroom tc-
"The Revival of Rick-R^J-
TEN or fifteen yea_3 tack every
woman was utilizing the flat,
wuvy rlck-rack braid for trimming waists or to adorn some bit of
fancy work. This season her daughter
is following her example, but, as usual,
with a dluerence.
i In u8 revival rlck-rack braid ls used
in combination with colored embrold-

brlar-stltchlng, cross-bars, seeding or
French knots, done In one or two contrasting tones of heavy silk or floss

embroidery stitches are done ln white
on a colored pillow. The braid should
be securely tacked on the points, the
stitches being quite long on the underside.
latter mny be made either of heavy
Irish lace or can be of the crepe or
chiffon, with appliques of hand -embroidered flowers on it, either in
white or in soft pastel shades. The,
straps and small stiff bows holding,
down the mines are of velvet to>
match the skirt.
A striking blouse to be worn with
a suede cloth jacket suit in the new

one, in rather heavy net dyed the ex
act tone of the cloth. It is trironieil
with a shallow voke of tucked miist-
lin, outlined with passementerie-,
whicli is continued in u pleusing de-
si"n down the front of the blouse.
Empire girdle bows nnd a tiny bias
fold around the voke are of a deeper.
tone of  violet velvet.
Very stylish, indeed, is tho last
blouse, of ecru lace and the new
shade of brown cloth, which forms
n very artistic color scheme. The
lace is so arranged that it peep*
out between slashes of the cloth
both on waist and sleeves in a most
bewitching fashion. Tiny silt, buttons and loops of silk cord the same
shade as the cloth are used as a.
All those waists have the deep
Empire girdles, high in back nnd
rounding in front. Tbey either
match the skirt or else are made of
the velvet or cloth with wliich tho
blouse is trimmed. They all fasten,
in the back with buckles or ornaments.
Even where the laco or net blouses
are not made to ■■match a special
costume, most of them show n touch
of color in them in the way oi velvet
bows or folds put on in odd design*
—not so much as to be garish, but
just enough to give nn indescrib-
oblv Fronchy look.
The allover lace waists, in both
white and cream, will, of course, be
worn; so will the lingerie ones, by
the way. They are too con von ion t
to be discarded, but they are certainly outdistanced in popularity by
the new ones to match the suits.
Tt is comparatively easy, however,
for Iho clever woman to transform
n separate lace waist into part of
a costume by having adjustable trimmings that may be added whr-\ u_
dark gown is worn.
In this way the blouse can also
be utilized to wear as o house dress.
with a white cloth or voile skirt.
One of the prettiest of the all-
white waists is of an allover German Valenciennes lace in rather n
deep cream, embroidered wilh hcav--
ily padded coin and pin dots. Knob.
a blouse worn with a white skirt is
extremely useful for an evening at-
home or to assist at an informal
little tea. For, after all, nothing is.
more becoming to young nnd old
alike than nn entirely white sown.
One of this character has the
merit of being comparatively un-
crushnble; it cnn be packed without irreparable damage in a suit*,
