but Jt was rising uow.

not ahnonkey."
VTll show, 3'oii whether I'm the size
or not."
,:  "You will?"
" "Aw, gee!" said one of the bigger
boys. "I wouldn't take that from no
Wellmouth kid. If I was you, Sam,"
"Nor I, neither." said another.
Thus encouraged. Sam briBtled up to
his Opponent and looked down at him
Sueerlngly. Bradley didn't give wuy
an Inch, and the two boys rubbed
jackets ns they moved slowly about
each other. The surrounding group
looked delightedly expectant.
"Stop your shovln'!" commanded
Sam, giving his enemy a push with
his shoulder.
"Stop yourself," said Bradley, pushing back.
"I'll put a head on you so's the old
maids won't know von." .
"I'll make you snivel worse 'n yon
did In school this mornln'."
"Well, Sam," exclaimed a spectator
In huge disgust, "'fore I'd take that!"
The Hammond boy did not really
want to light, but, thus goaded, he suddenly guve Bradley a violent push
with both hands. " The next Instant
both youngsters were .clasped tightly
together, gripping each other about the
neck and wrestling savagely. In a
moment they fell with a thump and
rolled over'nnd over, pounding, kicking
and scratching. The snow flew, and
the crowd whooped and pushed aud
strained to see better.
Then there was a rush, a frightened
scurry, and both combatants were
pulled apart nnd jerked to tbelr feet,
while Mr. Daniels, holding each by
tbe coat collar, glared down upon tbem.
"You may come with me," he said,
wltb chilling calmness.
The scene In the schoolroom tbnt followed was brief, but exciting. Bradley
held out bis hand and bit his lip stubbornly while the ferule descended—
once, twice, twelve times.
"There!" said the teacher. "Now,
you mny tnke your seat. For a new
scholar you begin extremely well.
Now, Samuel!"
The Hammond hand having received
Its share of beating nnd Its owner also
sent to his sent, Mr. Daniels said:
"Both of you will lose your nfternoon
recess. I shall alio give each of you
a note, telling of your punishment, to
take home."
At half past 4 that afternoon Bradley, with tlie uotc tightly claspcd In
liis hand, walked dismally up the walk
lto the Allen bnck door. The thought
;thnt he had dlsgi 'ceil himself forever
In the eyes of his ;irotectors burned like
a flre under his new cap; also there
was a bitter feeling that Que. the cause
,of nil his trouble, had uot been near
.him to console or nsk pardon.
It wns typical of the boy thnt he had
not thought of destroying the note. He
handed It to Mils Prissy tbe moment
he opened tbe door. She rend It and

"My soul and body!" "she wallei

"Oh, oh, ob!" she cried, waving the
condemning sjugt of paper like a distress signal.' ''now could you? .-How
could yon? I don't b'lieve a relation of
the Aliens was ever whipped ln school
before. What shall we do, Prissy?
And his flrst day too!"
Bradley, with direful thoughts of
self destruction In his mind, twisted his
new cap Into a ball, but said nothln,'.
"He says you were fightln' nnd thore
was sometbln' elce," said Miss Prissy.
"Tell the whole story now—every
The boy began slowly. He told of
shutting the dog lu the closet, but wa»
interrupted by the older sister, who
demanded to know whose dog It was.
"Whose was It?" she nsked. "Why
don't you answer? Don't you know?"
"Then whose was lt?"
Bradley shifted his feet unensily on
the mat.
"I nlu't goin' to tell," he muttered
"Ain't goin' to tell? Why, I uev"—
She was interrupted. The door behind Bradley flew open, aud Gus appeared, tearful, but determined.
."Mjss, JYissy unl SIIss Tempy," she
began, "dou't you scold Bradley—dou't
you.now, njjlt! It was all my fault,
everymiteof Tt. 6b, dear, dear!"
Aud, with sobs and amid the ejaculations of tbe astonished sisters, she told
the whole story, omitting nothing nud
sparing herself nat the least. When
thejecltai was finished Miss Prissy
ivas the first to co.nmeut upon lt.

Gusjooked, St BraqeS'"-ppealingly,
then at thS sisters! and,'with another
burst of sobs, flung herself out of the
door nnd slammed it behind her.
"That- awful dog glril" sputtered
Miss Tempy. "I knew what she was
from the time she spoiled this very
'floor with her dreadful critters. Bradley Nlekerson, don't you ever speak to
her again. Now promise."
But that promise the boy would not
make, although the argument lasted for
an hour and ended Iu his being sent to
his room without his supper.
"It looks to me," said Miss Trlssy
that night, "as If we'd got about as
much on our bands as you and me
could handle. Tempy."
"It certaluly does," agreed her sister
nervously. "I think if s our duty to ask
Cap'n Tltcomb's advice right off."
"Brad." he said, as they came out of
the Allen gate after dinner, "what's
this I hear 'bout you glttln' the rope's

tbe whole ynrn. I cnl'late I've heard
tbe most of it. You and the Hammond
boy had a scrlmmagei, too, didn't you'?"
"Yes. sh," said Bradley doggedly.
"Hum! Think you'd have licked
hlni If the skipper hadn't took n hand?"
Bradley looked up at his questioner,
saw the twinkle In bis eye nnd an-
HEN the captain called, which
he did the next forenoon, the
tale of Bradley's eventful
flrst dny at school was told
bim in all its harrowing completeness.
Miss Trissy, by previous ngreemeut,
acted ns story teller, and Miss Tempy
wns a sort of chorus, breaklug In every few moments to supply a neglected
detail or comment on a particular feature.
"And we didn't know wbat to do,"
concluded Miss Prissy. "He won't
goin' to tell us whose dog It wus, and"—
"1 don't b'lieve he ever would have
told," broke In MIsh Tempy, "If that
'dog girl' lierself hadn't come bouncin'
In, nnd"—
"And he won't promise not to speak
to her agnln, neither," continued the
older sister. "We sent him to bed
without any supper"—
"That ls. auy real supper," Interrupted the chorus. "Of course we took up
some cookies nnd things when we
found he wouldn't eome down, but"—
"And he won't promise this mornlu',
and he went to school without prom-
Isin'. What do you think we ought to
do. Cap'n Titcomb?"
"She's noisy and n tomboy," snlo
Miss Prissy decidedly.
"Yes," snld Miss Tempy; "and she
likes those dreadful dogs."
"Um—hum," answered their visitor,
with uuimpeuchublo seriousness. "Of
course that's a terrible drag, but maybe she'll cut 'em adrift when she gits
"Well, *we don't like her," said Miss
Prissy, with decision. "And we wish
you'd speak to Bradley nbout lt. You

"So do I," said Miss Tempy quickly;

*\n Old Arab Legend That Tells of Hit
Unmatched Speed.
The bay colored horse Is said to be
he swiftest of nil the horses. A story
:o illustrate this is told of a certain
\rab sheik who, having beeu engaged
n a fight with another tribe, was tak-
_g his flight with his little son.
Tbey were both mounted on a mag-
liflcent white mare which belonged to
the sheik and which had always been
highly valued 4% account of tho great
speed at which It could go. After hav-
lug ridden some little distance tbe
sheik nsked his son to look around and
see lf they were being followed. The
boy replied that there was some one
riding after them on a black horse.
The sheik seemed satisfied on hearing
this report, but presently repeated his
question. The boy answered thnt they
were still being pursued, but that this
time the horse was white. "Never
-Ind," said the father; "mine ls
In a few minutes be nskpd for a
further report, and the reply was the
—me, with the difference that the horse
was a chestnut The shiek. however,
put his question a fourth time, but
upon being told by bis son that the
pursuer was mounted ou a bny he
cried out, "Then we are lost, for there
is no horse which It cannot overtake."
His words proved to be true, for In a
short time they were caught up wltb
and captured.
A Little Vaseline Improves and Pro-
serves the Binding.
An official of the Congressional library wns talking with n friend who
recently hnd purchased,u handsome set
Df leather bound volumes and snld:
"You hnd better examiue those volumes carefully to see If tbe leather
needs feeding. If It Is new stock they
will be all rigtit let alone for several
years, but If they have been on the
shelves for some time the leather will
have lost most of Its natural oil and
become brittle. This applies especially
to books kept In private ht.uscs, which
nre as a rule much hotter than the book
stacks of a large library. There Is
nothing more attractive than a fresh,
well preserved leather binding on a
volume and scnrcely anything lees so
than a dilapidated, cracked one.
"Yon can add years to the life of a
leather binding and a hundred per cent
to Its appearance by rubbing in ,u llttl©
vaseline with a piece of raw cotton-
not too much, just ns much as the
leather will thoroughly absorb. Where
the binding bends is where It Is most
likely to crack. The leather will not
be greasy, as the vaseline will be ab-
lorbed. One treatment every year or
two Is sufficient unless tbe books are
unduly exposed to heat"
District Ha* Great Possibilities Says
R. R. Gamey.
That the people of New Ontario
who talked secession cannot be blamed much for complaining, but that ihe
district is one of great possibilities is
the opinion of R. R. Gamey.
Speaking ol the trip of the Provincial Ministers and others in New Ontario, he said recently:
"In Port Arthur, Fort William and
Fort Fran da.  which we visited, matters  ara  getting  on  nicely,  and   th
Minister*i are leaving a good impression.
'This is where the real agitation
comm—xsed and a week age the Ministers were presented with a bill of
grievances. A number of the requests
made had already been dealt with by
the Legislature last session, auch as
ineroase of school grants, aid for
building schools, cheaper school
books, eta.
"I havo met many of the people and,
I fancy -the outburst waa an acoumu-
'latien of aggravations extending over
yeara, and for which the late Government were largely responsible, if any
Government can be blamed. No doubt
that Government, like all the people
of older Ontario, lacked confidence in
the possibilities of this country and,
for that reason, never took the question of the Government of this section
as Beriously as they should have.
Sell to Actual Settlers.
"Mt opinion now is that between
the Lake of the Woods and the Rainy
Lake, north of Rainy River and the
Minnesota State, lies a splendid section of country from an agricultural
standpoint. In about thirty townships
possibly two-thirds of the land is
splendid, but quite impossible for the
settler to open-up or deal with from
an individual standpoint.
"The late Government located many
veterans on these lands, thus making
it harder still for an actual settler:
that, of course, cannot be remedied
now, but Hon. F. Cochrane has made
it possible for them to obtain a deed
which mny lead to some pf these lands
being sold to actual settlers. i
"What is wanted now is about
$100,000 judiciously expended on
leading roads by a competent Government engineer, about $50,000 expended
on a carefully-thought-out drainage
Bystem and then the ordinary grants
in co-operation with the municipal
council? for a few years.
Censures the C. N.  R.
"The Canadian Northern have utterly failed to give this locality anything
like reasonable service.
"There is muoh valuable timber
here, which is wanted in the western
market, but the people here are afraid
to make contracts as they know that
they cannot depend on getting cars
to deliver, and the poor settler, who
•pojjld. mnke a. good living by taking
out timber, is actually suffering. In
fact, the neglect and "utter djgre^ard
of the C.N.R. in this "section*"ia"criminal negligence in some cases as, in>
directly as your crossings in Toronto
"The postal facilities are bad. There
is no mail-cat on this line and a letter going from here to the next station
is actually carried past that station
to Winnipeg, and then baok on the
ne_t train.
Promising   Country.
'The people do not take Toronto
papers to any extent and are out of
touch with the east, so thai they cannot be blamed much for kicking.
"The trip of the Ministers will do
much good, because the Conservatives
party lack a publicity bureau and the
people are ooming to visit them and
learning what tlie Government hnve
really been doing. All day long matters are being discussed in a manner
that will be beneficial to both the poople and the Government.
"I think if the Government will
launch out with liberal expenditure
and regulations, this is one ' of the
most promt-ring of the newer portions
of our province, and 100,000 happy,
prosperous and contented people could
be located between Lake of the Woods
and Rainy Lake."
Game   and   Forest   Reserves.
Although I am no pessimist regarding the permanence of animal life, I
am compelled to believe that unless
several great provincial game and
forest reserves are at onco set aside
in British Columbia, the mountain
sheep of that province are doomed to
speedy extinction. To the Stoney Indian, to the hungry trapper, aud to
every sportsman, that fine animal is
so great a prize, both for its valuable
trophy head and for food, that it will
continue to be sought everywhere, so
long as the law permits the hunting
of it. It would indeed be cause for
great regret if any combination oi
circumstances should bring about in
the splendid mountains of British
Columbia the extinction of the grandest mountain Bheep in America..
For several reasons I am totally opposed to the trapping of grizzlies for
their skins, to poisoning them, and to
permitting any hunter to kill more
than one grizzly per year. In other
words, I think the time hns come *o
protect this animal, at least everywhere south 6f latitude 54 degrees. As
a stnte asset, every live, wild grizzly
of adult size is worth from $300 to
$500, and as a hunter's prand object,
it is worth much more. The trapping
aad • poisoning of tliis noble animal
should stand forever.—Wm. T. Horna-
day, director New York Zoological

Mr. R. W. Perks Speaks On Canadian
Mr. R. W. Perks, M.P., one of the
most eminent laymen in Methodism
in. England, and also one of the larg-
Bst contractors of the old country, recently was a visitor to Toronto. He
spoke here before the Toronto Methodist Conference.
His business purpose in coming to
the Dominion was to look into the
proposition of constructing a $100,000,-
000 ship canal in Canada. While int
this country he made no announcements of significance on this scheme..
A few days ago he arrived back im
England and gave an interview U>
The London Daily • News, which is>
published as follows:
The great £20,000,000 Canadian canal scheme has been advanced a big'
stage, and all estimates, etc., are now
ready for the consideration of th*
Canadian Government.
Mr. R. W: Perks, M.P., landed frorro
the White Star liner Celtic, from New-
York Sunday night. He has been eight
weeks in America in connection with
this enterprise, and during that period he has traversed the route for tha
projected canal from end to end, acting in this survey for the company
which will undertake the construction,
of this new ship canal, in conjunction with Messrs. C. H. Walker &
Co., the firm of London engineering:
contractors, in which Mr. Perks is a.
partner. The^ were interested in the
construction of the Manchester Ship/
"Canal. ,
The new scheme is to provide «■■
Canadian ship canal which will enable ocean-going steamships to transport the grain and other produce from
the interior of the Dominion direct la
Liverpool by water. The new waterway is to. extend from Georgian Bay
-through three of the great lakes and;
down the Ottawa River to Montreal!
and the St. Lawrence. The plans provide for n depth all the way sufficient,
to take any vessel drawing up to 2*
feet. Obviously, a great Canadian waterway, directly connecting the fertile

Chief of Oka Tribs Resents Em-insure*
of   Land.
A recent despatch from Oka,, says:
The fact that Chief Angus Corinth-*
has announced thnt there will Im
bloodshed in Oka if the fencing of
public land is proceeded with, give*
those who know the ways of the Indian here more concern than all the-
alarmist rumors that have been set
afloat at different times during the-
last few years. Almost every year-
there have been, so to speak, pocket
rebellions here, in the course of
which, at various times, the provincial police and detectives, ns well as
those of the Dominion, have been called out for rervice. The outlook, however, hns never before been so serious as at -.he present. Those who-
know Angus Coiinthe know him ns
a careful, deliberate man, who would
not openiy proclaim such defiance nsi
he has done unless he had thought the-
matter out carefully.
In connection with this jt must be'
remembered that a little over a year
age he deliberately tried to bring
things to nn issue by cutting down a
tre" on tbo disni'ted domnins tn -nn'-t.
a flagstaff for his property in the village. He delied tlie gentlemen oi til*
seminary at that time to put him lu
jail, but, thanks to the moderation of
the latter, who are somewhat tired of
the constant trouble with the Indians,
nothing seriouB happened.
In the present ease, whatever occurs will not be at the instigation r,f'«
the Board of Health of the province,,
which objects to cows and otlier animals roaminc around through the village. The village authorities have been,
ordered by the Board of Hoalth to enclose the meadows, and, owing to.
threats, have i^ted fof tlie protection,
of the provincial police.

Oue to Neglecting to Koep the Liver Right, the Digestion aoed, the Bowels Healthy By Using
You may shudder to think of yourself ub a dyspeptic—as one who,
through stomach troubles, has. come
to look on the dark side of things,
and to be ill-tempered and grouchy
—but if you neglect treatment for
repeated attacks of indigestion you
will most assuredly become a chronic
The great mistake is to put the
blame on the stomach, and strive
in vain for lasting benefit from tablets and so-called digestives. The
real cause of trouble in nine cases
out of ten is witb the liver.
Thousands of persons are being
cured of complicated cases of indi- j
gestion by Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills, because of their direct action
on the liver, thus ensuring a good
flow of bile—good digestion and,
healthful action pf the bowels.
Mr. C. D. Bennett, Maple Grove,
Megantic Co., Que., writes: "I had
dyspepsia very bad. The food would ;
sour, my stomach would swell up, I
suffered a great deal and could not
sleep. As the result of using Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills I am now
entirely cured, and can eat anv kind
of food without feeling any bad effects. They have made a new and
a younger man of me, and I cannot
say too much in their praise.
"Dr. Chase's Ointment cured a
friend of mine of piles when he was
so bad he could not work or even
stand up."
Mr. Wm. G. Purdy, Bridgetown, N.
S., writes: "When I wrote to you
for Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills I
was a sufferer from kidney disease,
stomnch troubles, and liver and
bowel disorders. By using one pill
at bedtime every night my health
has gradually improved until I can
say that I am.in better health-than
I have been for twenty years. All
other medicines failed , but Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills have
cured me." *
This treatment is thorough, far-
reaching and of lasting benefit, and
cures the most severe cases of chronic
and intestinal indigestion, as well as
biliousness and constipation; 25

I approached a group   of    bishops on
the hotel  porch at noon  and asked
for aid.    "No," one  of  the  churchmen replied, "I don't think we can
du anything.    But down there is the
youngest b'shop of us  all  (pointing
to  Bishop  Talbot)  and  he's  a  very
generous man."
The tramp went to Bishop Talbot
and the others watched with interest.
They saw a look of surprise come
over the tramp's face. They saw
that the bishop was talking eagerly,
earnestly. They saw that the tramp
looked perturbed, but they finally
saw something pass from hand to
hand. The tramp tried to get away
without speaking to those of the
group, but the former spokesman
called to him: "Well, did you get
something from our young brother?"
The tramp grinned - sheepishly.
"No; I gave him a dollar for his
blamed new cathedral at Laramie!"

either    for    health    or     recreation.
Walking was  only  practised by  the

j place to another simply because they
possessed   neither   coach   nor  Sedan
\chair.    Dr. Tronchin, an imitator in
many other respects,    induced    "les

Shark     Oversees     Risky     Piece     of
A sea captain's ingenuity and pluck
are the subject of a capital story
whicli comes from Hartlepool. Captain
Ivor Mattson, of the Swedish barque
Flora ia the hero of the adventure,
which occurred when the Flora was
on a voyage from Norway to the Cape.
Heavy weather was encountered in
the Bay of Biscay, and the water commenced to make its way into the vessel ot the bows. Despite the fact that
the pumps were kept going—h* means
of the windmill on deck when possible, and at other times by hand—
the water rose steadily in the hold,
and eventually the Flora, which was
by this time in the South Atlantic,
was in a well-nigh waterlogged condition. The captain then decided upon
heroic measures. It was impossible
to stop the leak from the inside, so
he determined to try and stop it from
the outside. For this purpose a diving Buit of some form was necessary,
and out of a piece of sail cloth. Captain Mattson fashioned a huge bag,
sixteen feet long and two feet in diameter, fixing metal rings 2t intervals
inside in order to keep it in shape. At
a si-table height he put in a small
window, scraping the bock off a cheap
mirror for the purpose. Armholes and
sleeves were fitted, and the whole apparatus so rigged up that the bag
could be loweed into the water to the
rertuisite depth to enable a person inside it to examine the hull of the vessel under water. Captain Mattson himself descended in this novel diving
suit, and discovered, after considerable difficulty, two places where the
water was entering.
With the aid of rags, rope, etc., he
caulked the apertures, the daneers of
the task being increased by the' fact
that, whilst the leakages were some
four feet below the actual water line
of the vessel, their depth momentarily
increased to eight feet or so as the
ship dipped to the long Atlantic roll.
The pitching of the vessel, too. c.ii-s«d
Captain Mattson to be continually
thrown with more or less force ajrainst
the hull, and indeed the friction gra-
duolly wore a hole in the canvas at
the foot of the bag. Through this the
water entered the bag and immersed
Captain Mattson to the chin before
he could call out to his men to haul
him up. Another unpleasant interruption was caused by a shark. All the
morning before Captain Mattson commenced operations a large shark had
been swimminir around the vessel The
crew had fished for him with meat,
etc., but without success, but at
length the monster, rising to grab at
so insifmificant an article as an empty
match box that hnd been thrown overboard, Captain Mattson had a Bhot
at him with a revolver. The shark was
just helow the water when the bullet
hit him, and evidently not much damage was done. Still, he swam away,
nnd was not seen aeain until Captain-
Mattson was below in his extemporised
diving suit. The crew ot once warned
the captain of the shark's approach,
but the captain dooided to go on with
his work. The shark came up, and
Captain Mattson, keeping close to the
side of the vessel, saw him come
round the bows. The pilot fish that
accompanied him inspected the canvas bag, but tho shark passed, ap-
oarently unheeding, some four or five
i'eet off. Captain Mattson was al first
.somewhat afraid the shark might attack his hands, and had his knife
ready to defend himself if necessary.
The leakages being repaired, the
Flora, continued her voyage to Cape
Town, which she reached in safety,
and, as a recognition of his daring
and ingenuity, Captain Mattson waa
the recipient o. several handsome
presents. ,

seek, the mure knowledge the better. With confidence .iiii5pirfcd
by effective advertising, it is then up to the salesman to de the
rest—to make good b.v courtesy and a skillful presentation of the

The Pope's Secretary
Cardinal Merry del Val, the Pope's
famous Secretary of State, was born
an London—a fact of which few
.people seem to be aware—and re-
■ceived some of his education at a
.preparatory school near Windsor.
He is a wonderful man ih many respects, and has a prodigious memory. On one occasion, alter the late
Pope had addressed in his native
tongue an assembly of English people, he turned to the Cardinal and
asked him to interpret what he had
eaid. Without the slightest hesitation the young Secretary of State
proceeded to do as he was bid, repeating most of the Pope's own expressions word for word.

tliem later is port of the work carried on by the Marine Biological Association of Great Britain.
By menns of a stream trawler the
fish are caught in the usual way.
Each haul is carefully recorded, the
fish are counted and measured and.
all details of locality, time, number,,
species, sex and size are put down,
together with accurate observations
on the water, the depth and bottom
of the sea. the kinds and quantity of
food available, eto. These data are-
subsequently tabulated and charted.
The method of marking the fish is
interesting, and has been attended
with valuable results. The fish chiefly used during the few years the experiment has been in progress have
been plaice, because the proposals
whicll have been made to interfere
with the catching of them were based
on  inadequate knowledge.
The fish are marked on the dorsal
surface with i very thin convex metal
disk bearing a number. This is attached to a fine silver wire which is
passed through the thinner part of
the fish and secured on the underside
by a small bone button. The fish do
not appear to suffer inconvenience,
and their growth is not interfered with
in any way.
The thoroughness with which the
North Sea is swept by the nets of
the fishing fleets is demonstrated,
says Discovery, by the fact that, out
of' 5.039 marked plaice of all sizes,
902 were recaptured within a year.
This represents 19.7 per cent., or
nearly one-fifth but for the medium
sized fish the figures are far higher,
ranging from 28.4 to 39 per cent, for
the whole of the North Sea and to 43
per cent, in the more northern portions.
The men of the regular fishing fleet
co-operate by forwarding to the laboratory of the association at Lowestoft
all the marked fish they catch. At
the laboratory reference to the records easily establishes how much the
ifish has gained in size and weight
since the previous catching. Moreover, the distance between the spot
where it was released and the place
where it was caught establishes its

\iuard   Their    Children's    Health   by
Giving  Them   Dr.   Williams'
Pink Pills
The health of the growing   boy or
girl   should    be    carefully   guarded.
During the growing time there is a
danger  of   the   blood   becoming   poi-
-oncd  and  the  heilth seriously   impaired.    The   blood  should  be  kept
pure and the child will grow strong,
healthy  and  active.    Dr.    Williams'
Pink Pills are an ideal tonic for the
young.    They    never    fail  to  bring
•'eolor to the pale cheeks and strength
"to the growing body.    To a reporter
' ot L'Avenir du  Nord, Mr. Jos.  Provost, of St.  Canute, Que.,  tells how
these pills saved his daughter Marie
from a life of misery.   He says:  "A
jear ago my daughter, a girl of thir-
' teen, was very weak.   She was so ill
'"Shot--feared she was going into consumption.   Though   I   tried   remedy
• niter remedy  she  remained   in   this
[freak  state   for  several  months   and
■ I  began  to  think  she   would  never
*%et  better.    I  read  of the good  Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills had been in a
case of anaemia, so got some for her.
Soon she began to improve; her appetite returned;    she    grew    strong;
color came into her cheeks  and  to-
«day she is as healthy as any young
-.girl  could be.    I firmly believe Dr.
'Williams' Pink Pills saved her life.'
_)r. WiUiams' Pink Pills are equal-
"ly as successful in bringing those of
-.mature age back to health   as   they
_re in building up the young.   They
make pure,  rich  blood—that is why
they banish    anaemia,    rheumatism,
St.   Vitus  dance,    heart  palpitation,
indigestion    and    the    secret ills  of
girlhood  and  womanhood.    But   you
must get the genuine,    bearing    the
fnll nnme, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People,"    on   the   wrapper
around each box.   All other so-called

Human Life and Property Destroyed
By  Them   In   India.
Mr. Lloyd and Mr. James were
camping in the vicinity of Mohergong
Garden when one^of their elephants,
breiaking his chains, mode for freedom and to this day roams tho Terai
Dooars and the Moorooug with his
jungle mates, writes the Terai, Bengal correspondent of The India Field.
For thirty years that and other elephants have been allowed to work
their wicked will on human life and
property unrestrained, and the tale
of mortality has grown year by year
till it is past bearing. About two
years ago the Government offered a
ieward of 300 rupees for the destruction of Mr. Lloyd's runaway, which
is now known as the club-footed rogue
by reason of same malformation caused by the chain round his foot, which
made it swell out. He is said to have
but a single tusk. I am under the
impression that the same animal is
known by the name of "the Rooara
rogue," and the number of his victims alone mount high, though I am
certain that he is not the only offender.
Last September an old woman and
her two young children were sleeping in their hut. Hearing movements
about their granary in the night, one
of the children woke up their mother, saying there were thieves at their
divan. The sound of human voices
waa enongh. An elephant which had
just torn off the grainhouse charged
the house and killed the woman and
child, one child escaping by hiding.
Next morning showed this animal
to have been a female, for she had a
call with her. Though retreating to
the Government reserved forest at
night, Terai elephants are getting
bolder and bolder, advancing well into the cultivated bonnes and gardens
everywhere, till the dread and loss
caused by them are bo great that
tenants are throwing up tl-.-Ur lands
on all sides.

To Broil a Ste.ik.
Few housewives understand the art
of broiling, and consequently chops
and steaks are often robbed of their
delicate flavor by frying ln a pan.
A steak or chop properly broiled
should bave a thin, well browned crust
Beyond tills crust the meat should be
red and juicy, hardly a shade less
done In the middle thun near the surface.
If the broiling Is to be done on a
range, hnve the flre very bright nnd
clear. Open every draft, that smoke and
(lames may be drawn up the chimney.
Place the piece of meat In the double
broiler and hold It as near the coals
us possible until the surface Is brown,
turning frequently. It will take three
or four minutes for this. Now raise
the broiler several Inches above the
bed of coals nnd continue the cooking
until tho meat ls done.
The broiler must be turned often. A
good rule Is to count ten slowly, tben
turn the broiler. A steak or chop cut
a ..little more than an Inch thick will
cook nicely In ten minutes, lf liked
well done, It slioUld be cooked tat
twelve minute*.
Pearls   Increase   in   Price
A good deal has been said about
the high prices at a recent sale of
jewelry in auction rooms, and surprise has been expressed that one
pearl necklace alone should have
sold for £6,800.
A. G. Maginnis, joint managing
director of a goldsmiths and silversmiths company, said that that price
was by no means exceptional ior a
necklace. "I have had the identical
necklace in my hand, and I certainly do not think it was dear at
the price. But we have in stock a
number which are far more valuable.
At the Paris exposition of 1900 we
had a white pearl necklace on show,
the price of which was £90,000. Such
prices as £25,000, £30,000 and £40,-
000 are not at ail uncommon.
"The reason that pearls bring in
such enormous prices* is that fine
specimens are scarce. First, they
must match. Not one in a thousand
is perfectly round. Then necklaces
are usually made so that the pearls
are large in front and taper off gradually at the back. This adds to
the difficulty of matching them. To
make up a really well matched necklace may take years.
"Undoubtedly the price has gone
up during the. last ten years, and it
is still going up. This is due partly
to an increased demand. Then the
company which took over the Ceylon
fisheries about a year ago is closing
them down for twelve months to enable the oysters to recuperate.
Therefore, during the next year or
so very few new pearls will come
into  the  market."—London  Tribun-..

SKINNY scratched his left ear with
a slate pencil.   This, accompanied
by a careless scraping of his feet,
caused    all    the     "Bloody    Robbers,"
who  were always  to  be  found  in  the
rear of the sctuiolmom, to take particular notice.

THERE once lived In Japan a wise
old man named Shohun-Shokan.
All day long Shohun-Shokan
j buried himself In ponderous volumes,
so you can see that by virtue of so
much reading he became very learned,
indeed. One look at his bulging forehead and deep-set eyes and you became
awed to think of the vast amount of
\ knowledge such a head must contain.
Shohen-Shokan sat gazing meditatively at tho walls of his little room, covered with the letterings of wise sayings
innumerable. Before him boiled Wb little kettle.
In surprise, he rested his eyes on the
kettle. Its muBlcal murmur had changed
to a growl, and, there before him, two
pairs of legs appeared at the bottom, a
tall at the handle and a peculiar snout
at the mouth.
This strange creature capered about
eo merrily that the Ud rattled and the
water overflowed frpm the kettle part
of lt.
The fame of Shohun-Shokan's possession spread throughout the land, and
he was Induced to travel through the
country exhibiting the enchanted kettle. It appeared to be very fond of Its
master and obeyed all his Instructions.
Many a crowd waa highly amused at
the sight of a kettle walking upon a
tight-rope or doing other antics. Shohun-Shokan grew wealthy rapidly.
Finally, believing that he should not'
abuse the favor of the gods by accumu-l
lating too great riches, he announced
hia Intention of spending the reBt of his
• life ln quiet study. '
With thia end ln view, Shohun-Shokan
purposed to bestow his enchanted kettle upon the nearest shrine.   Hardly had
the creature been placed on the altar,
' when, lo! lt resumed Its former shape—
, a mere kettle.   It may be seen there to
this day. -
I This is why all aged Japanese always
j examine a kettle carefully whenever
! they aee one, In the hope that perhaps
• the gods may favor them as they did

one who was six were having a delightful time when, happening to look
up, they spied the two beggars running down the hill as fast as they
could go. '
Course, they couldn't go to grandma's
now. Forlornly they trudged home to
pour -their tale of woe Into mother's
But perhaps you can underatand
why mother waBn't exactly pleased
when the two little "beggars" burst
into the room where she was entertaining her gueBts.
Tea, they s'poaed they had been
naughty; but, after all, wasn't It hard
to be sent to bed after trying with all
their might to do right?
Johnny's Excuse
JOHNNT'8 excuses are really the
funniest ever. Having been down
late for breakfast sevetal times
lately, his mother told him that tho
very next time it occurred he would
have nothing to eat.
"Johnny," said his mother, "you remember what I  told you."
"Tea, mother, but really and truly I
could not be down In time this morning."
i   "Why not?"
i "Tou aee, I was half asleep and half
awake, and somehow I dreamed I was
in church, and I knew you would not
like me to get up during the sermon."
Johnny had his breakfast that morning.
Cut Rates
They were talking about a mua'cal
entertainment for charity. "We could
never make It pay," Bald Fannie. "I
heard father Bay only the other afternoon that these singers get aa much
aa $300 for an evening!"
"NonsenBe!" Bald Polly. "I know an
organ-grinder that'll play an hour for
25 cents, and throw in a monkey."
Clever Catch

Tommy—No; let's hear it.

shoe is strapped lo your foot and
ankle, and 'i leather brace running
up the leg fastened so that the foot
ls held firm, then you stand on the
boot, and while in this position
buckle on the other. Needless to
say, it takes a little practice to keep
your balance.
Tou walk as you do ordinarily.
As you place your foot on the ground
the metal SDring is pressed down.
Stepping forward releases the pressure, the Bpvtng flvs up and you arp
pushed forward quite a distance.
It is really great fun. Perhaps
you may have a pair of "sevrn-

Getting Even
AMERRT little party had paid the
customary five centa each to fish in
the Btrcnm whleh ran through
Farmer Jones' orchard. It was a very
Warm day, and Boon one of the anglers
announced his Intention of taking a
swim. Farmer Jones, who JUBt then
-PI—ared on the Bcene, strongly objected.
With a wink to his companions, thn
wit drew the attention of the farmer to
the sign-board, which read: "Admission
to the river, five cents."
"So, having paid for it, here goes,"
Kniil he, taking a header.
Farmer Jones thun pounced on the
bather's clothes.
"I reckon ye paid for your clothes
and all," he chuckled, "an' they're going
in, too!"
So they did—every stitch—amidst
roam  of laughter.

as any time. 'Course, Joe's going mn**,-
—he alwaya does do the wrong thing—
but some one else 'II be away soon, and:

Captain Skinny said, impressively :

or some one would soon find out that a
frying pan or a tin bucket or other articles, as well as half the supply of
food ln the house, had gone with him.
Billy was quickly hitched to the
wagon; everything that a goat could
possibly haul was loaded on It, and
away they started. All felt much bet-,

by a great pile of rocks that made tha
nicest sort of a fireplace. Nearby a.
clump of trees gave a pleasant shade,
and. when the sheets had been pitched!
in the form of a tent, it was really
comfortable> inside.
No matter at what time the "robbers"-
reached camp, it was always necesBary-
to prepare a meal at once.
Skinny was chief eook aa well as cap--
taln. It wasn't long before he had a
good flre going in the fireplace fashioned among the rocks, the assistant
cooks bringing the wood and Skinny
applying the match.
Then he directed two of the fellows-
to get water from the eprlng, which
was about a mile away; and another,

The potatoes were cooked long enough.

Bill Kane noticed, too. that Skinny ate-,
only half a potato.
Evory one had eaten breakfast but a-
short time before. In spite of that,
however. It took quite a great deal ta
satisfy each hungry "bandit."'
After the repast aome of the fellowit

others wandered through the woods, a
