|RAD," asked Captain Titcomb, creasing the morning
paper Into folds and tosslug
it on the bed, "what are
you plannin' to do now that our lute
lamented owners have committed
tinancial suicide by cuttin' you off in
the flower of your youth, so to speak?"
It was late the morning of tbe third
day after the captain's return from his.
lfylng visit t;o .New York. They bud
said goodby to the Thomas Doane the
previous (forenoon and were now occupying a room In tbe United States hotel.
Bradley, who was sitting by the,
window, looking down upon the hats
of tbe people iu the narrow street,
answered slowly: "I don't know. I've
been waiting to find out what you intended doing."
The captain crossed his legs and tilted back In his chair.
"I cal'late," he observed, "that I
could walk out of this gilded palace
of luxury and run afoul of another
skipper's berth inside of an hour. Not
at my old wages, of course, but a pretty fair berth, all the same. But, fact
is, Brad, I've hud a kink lu my main;
sheet for a consid'er'ble spell. I've bad
a notion that some day 1 was goin' to
cut loose and cruise on my own hook.
You know I've hinted at It for over a.
year. Now, it looks as If tbls was my
chance or never. Brad, how'd you like
to be a wrecker?"
"A wrecker?" Bradley's face showed
his absolute astonishment.
"Oh, I don't mean the line of wreck-
In' that Is makin' your eyes stick out
at this minute. Do you know Caleb
Burgess, Cap'n Jerry's cousin?"
Ves; Bradley knew him. He owned,
a little schooner that flitted along the
Cape Cod coast, picking np flouting;
wreckage when It was of value, dragging for anchors, dredging for cbaius.
and ironwork lost by vessels In trouble and doing a sort of nnutlcal old
junk business.
"Well," went on the captain, "Caleb's
glttln' old, and he'd like to sell out
Most folks think he's scratched a bare
llvin' from the shoals, but 1 happen to
know that he's doue a good deal better
than tbat. Tbe old man told me how
much he had In tbe bank, and It wan't
to be sneezed at. Now. I could buy that
schooner of his cheap. She isn't much,
and money would have to be spent on
ber, but she'd do forfl start. You understand, the wreckln' business I'd do
wouldn't be anchor draggln' alone.
There's money lu a flrst class wreckln'
,plant on Cape Cod. Wrecks! Why,
tbey pile up there three deep every
winter. Now, listen a minute, while I
rise to blow."
Bradley listened, aud the captain
talked. He bad evidently given much
thought to this proposition, and bis
plans were ambitious. He believed
that if a capable mun bought tbe Lizzie
—that was the name of the Burgess
schooner—added to ber equipment and
sailed ber h'.mself he could build up a
profitable business. The salvage of
cargoes of stranded schooners and of
the schooners themselves ployed a
large part In his plans. One or two
good sized jobs of this kind taken on a
<■om.mli.Klon basis would bring In capital
enough to warrant the purchase of a
bigger vessel, fitted wltb uuxlllary
power, fitted wltb a diving equipment,
derricks and the like.
"But wouldn't tbat take capital?"
"Sartln sure. But let me—us—prove
that the profit's there and the capital 'II
be donated, like frozen potaters at a
minister's surprise party. Ob, I've
thought It out!   Now, here!"
The captain's plan for Bradley's cooperation was, briefly stated, just tbls:
He (Captain Titcomb) would provide
the money for buying the Lizzie and
whatever else was immediately necessary. Bradley would contribute his.
savings to the pile. They were to be
partners on equal shares, but Bradley
was to pay from bis share of whatever
proflts might come from time to time
the amount necessary to make bis investment the equal of the captain's.
No new move was to be made without
the consent of both partners. It was a.
very generous offer, and Bradley said,
"No generosity nbout lt," protested
Captain Ezra. "I'm lookln' out for
myself, nnd need you, as the tipsy
man said to the lamp post. I tell you,
honest, I sha'n't go Into this thing unless you go ln with me. Maybe It's a
fool notion anyway. Well, there," he
concluded, "now that I've unloaded
my mind, we'll go down to. the Cape
this afternoon. I'll look round, and
,you take a week to think things over
ao-   At tbe eu-J of the veek vou oan
say Tea—or 'NJ.'"
They caught the 4 o'clock train for
The "old maids" were washing the
supper dishes when. Bradley surprised
them by walking Into the dining room.
When th" first shock was ovjjr tbe sisters were the most delighted pnlr In
Orhdm. They Insisted on preparing a
brand new meal for their "boy.V and
no amount of protestation on his part
could change tbelr minds.
They were very curious to know why
Bradley had come home so unexpectedly, and when they learned that he
had left the Thomas Doane nnd not
lonly that, but that the captnln nlso
had left they asked one question after
another. Bradley simply said that tbe
captain had otber plans and that he
couldn't tell what they were yet-
After supper they adjourned to the
sitting room. Bradley was uneasy
and several times glanced at the clock.
After awhile he said that, if they
didn't mind, he should like to go out
for un hour or* so. Of course, tbe sisters said, tbey "didn't mind," ond he
put on his bat ond went
Miss Prissy's shrewd guess wasn't
far wrong. Bradley passed out of tne
Allen gate only to opeu tbe one of tlie
yard adjoining. His knock at Ihe
side door apparently started a cantne
insurrection, for there was a tremendous barking and growling inside, and
when old Mrs. Baker answered tbe
knock the heads of Tuesday aud Win-
field, the only survivors of Otis' troop
nf pets, protruded from either side of
her skirt. Both dogs and old lady
were surprised and glad to see the
"Why, Bradley Nlekerson!" exclaimed Mrs. Baker. "How do yoU do?
Come right In, won't you? No, Ousty
ain't In jest now. It's prayer meet-
In' night, and she thought she'd go.
Well, I'm sorry you /wop't step in nnd
The Bakers sttended the Baptist
church, and thither walked Bradley,
his bands in his pockets and his bead
full of the wrecking scheme.
It was nearly 9"o'clock, aria .the
fence In front of the.llttle churcji wfes
ornamented by a row of Orham young
men who were waiting for tb^'meeting to come to an end..
Bradley joined the fence brigade and
was hailed by half a dozen acquaintances, mostly old schoolfellows. He
beard all the news and a lot more thnt
might become news If 'It ever happened.
"Sara Hammond was down last'
riionth." so Hart Sears Informed him.
"Talk about dudes! Say, Snuppy.
wa'u't he n lulla-cooler?" ■
"I sbbuld sttiile lf be wa'n't," replied
"Snuppy" Black. "G«Jd watch—and
clothes! You never saw such clothes!
Sam's working f3r tbe Metropolitan
Wrecking company, and he must be
getting rich. And he bus a good time
In New York. 'Member those yarns
nbout the girls. Hurt?"
Sears laughed und winked knowingly. "Sam's a great feller for girls,", he
observed. "He was chnsln' 'em down
here, 1 tell you. Gus B4ki.r was the
one bo chased most, but Gus can keep
him guessln'. He ain't the only *ono
that's been runnin' after her—hey,

rest of the conversation. In' tbe flrst
place, be didn't relish the Idea, so sud-
.S7i< came out and stood on the step.
denly brought home to blm, tbat "fellers" were running after Gus, and particularly be didn't care to have Sam
Hammond aiming the runners. He had
met Sam once or twice In New York.
A big chap he wus, handsome and well
.dressed In a ratber loud fusklon^and
town. Brudley^rus no*t a'Vrlg.' but Sn
loons and after thpater suppers had little attraction for him, even If bis salary bad been large enough to pay the
bills. He had wondered Idly how Sam
could afford the "fun" he. was always
The nielodeon in the -vestry struck
up "God Be With. You Till We Meet
Again," and the loungers ou the fencf
begun to move over toward the door.
He went with them, stundlug a little
wny brick from the entrance. The finul
verse of the hymn died awuy In deuf
Mrs. Piper's tremulous falsetto. Then
{here wus u hush ns the benediction
was pronounced, the door swung open,
and. with giggles and a rustle of conversation, the worshipers began to
Bradley looked for Gus. nnd at last
he saw her. She wus talking to Mr.
Langwortby. and tbe light from the
bracket lamp In the entry shone upon!
her face. Again he decided, just asj
bo had"*when be left her before going,
to sea, that she was pretty, but now'
he realized thnt hers wns not a dolllike prettlness, but that there wns chur-
acter in her dark eyes and the expression of her mouth.
She came out and stood on the step,
buttoning her glove. Two of the young,
fellows stepped out of the line toward
her. She spoke to both of them and
laughed. Then she caught sight of
Bradley, who also had moved Into the
lamplight, nnd, brushing past the rival
puir of volunteer escorts, she held out
her hand.
"Why, Brad!" she exclaimed. "Where
on earth did yon come from? I'm ever
so glad to see you.   How do yoU do?"
Bradley-1 shook hnnds nnd said. "How
do you do?" There was no earthly reason why he should be embarrassed,
but he was. just a little. He stammered and then asked lf he might have
the pleasure of "seeing her home."
"Why, of course you may!" ahe said.
"That's what you came here for, Isn't
It?   I hope so, at any rate."
Bradley laughed and admitted that,
be guessed tbat was about lt. Out,
took bis arm, and they moved down;
the path and down the rough stone
steps to the sidewalk.
"Why, I haven't seen you for an,
age!" said Gus. "And you haven't
written for nearly three weeks! Why
did you come home now? You didn't
expect to come home so soon, did
Bradley explained why be had come
home. Captain Titcomb had left the
Thomas Doane, be said, and he had
left with him. He didn't tell the real
reason for the leaving, but hinted at
dissatisfaction with the owners. To
bead off further questions on this ticklish subject he asked Gus wbat she
had been doing that winter.
"Well," she said, "I graduated from
high school, for one thing, and I'm
keeping bouse for grandma. I guess
that's about all."
"What's been going on In town?
Any dances?"
"Yes; a few. I went to the Washington's birthday ball, but it wasn't
much fun. Most of the floor committee were old, married people and about
every other dance was 'Hull's Victory'
or , a quadrille. Round dances, you
know, are wicked, especially lf you
don't know how to dance them."
"You wrote me you went to tbat.
Sam Hammond's boen home, hasn't1
"Oh, yes. I went to the ball with
him. He's a lovely dancer, and we1
waltzed whenever they played a waltz,
tune, no matter whether the rest were
busy with a quadrille or not. But why!
don't you tell me what you are going,
to do now that you've given up your'
position?"    -
Bradley told ber of Captain Titcomb's
Idea concerning the purchase of the
Lizzie and the offer of partnership In'
the wrecking business. As he talked,
his growing Interest In the plan be-,
came more evident, and he spoke of It
as something already nearly decided
upon. "What do you think of It?" be
asked In conclusion.
"Why, I don't know," replied Gus.
"If It nil works out as tbe cap'n hopes
•It will be a fine thing. But Isn't lt
rather risky? It menus staying at
home here in Orham, where people's
Ideas get Into a rut, it seemu to me.
The cities seem so big and to bave
sucb chuncea for n mnn! You know
yourself. Brad, that you've Improved a
lot since yon went awuy." ,
"I haven't got a gold- watch yet or
any flue clothes, and my dancing
wouldn't draw a crowd, I guess."
"Don't be silly. Sara Is a good waltz-
er, aud he bas Improved In bla manners
and In other ways. I shouldn't want
you to Settle dowu iuto nothing but a
'longshoreman. I guess I'm like Miss
Tempy. I hoped you'd be cnntalh of
tin ocean liner some of these days."
"Well, 1 don't mean to cramp myself
to 'longshoreman size just because 1
stay In the village. It Idoks to me like
n cbunce—n good chance—to be my
'Own boss and make something of myself. 1 hoped you'd see It that way."
"Perhupa 1 sbnll when I get more
used to It. Tell me more, plense."
They hud reached the little bouse,
and, leaning on the gate under the big
sliver leaf tree, Bradley aguin went
over tbe details of tbe new plan. Gus
was Interested aud asked muny questions, but to both of them the Interview   was rfiot  entirely   satisfaftajy.
ejr-tinngfe of conftdences'^eemed fo "tie
lacking. To Bradley In particular as
he turned away after saying "Good
night" the consciousness of a difference in his relation with his old time
"chum" was keen. Sbe was Interested
In him nnd In his hopes and plans, but
she had plans and hopes of her own,
nnd perhaps be wns not so much the
central figure as he used to be.
Next dny Bradley called on the captain. The latter had seen Caleb Burgess, nnd the Lizzie could be bought
for. n very reasonable sum. Captain
Titcomb wns nlso preparing a long
table of figures showing the cost of
what wns needed to fit her up. They
talked for over an hour, but Bradley
X.as not yet ready to decide. He
wonld tnke his full week, he said.
But by the end or the week bis mind,
was mnde up. He was ready to take
the chance that the cnptaln offered.
He, fold Gus so, and she agreed that
perBaps he was doing right. He to|d;
the old maids and So knocked Miss^
Tenjpy's air castles Into smithereens
In one tremendous crash.
The partnership articles were signed,
Bradley drew bis money from the savings bauk, und the Lizzie changed!
hnnds. The next month was a very
busjr one, for they were at work on
the .schooner every day refitting nnd
rigging. One noon of the fourth week

with n Boston pnper In his hand.
Bradley, took the paper and snw oq,
the Jiuge. indicated the words: "Wt'eck
on the Long Island Sand Bars. The
Schdoner Thomns Doane Lost. All
Hnnds Snved." He glanced over the
article, wliich briefly stated thnt the
three masted schooner Thomns Donne,
Burke mnster, hnd struck on tbe shoals
ofT Long Island nnd w6uld be n total
loss.- The crew, nfter trying in vnlij.to
sn ve.the Vessel, had taken tjp'rTie boats
nnd reached shore In safety.
"1 didn't believe they'd dare do it!"
exclaimed Brndley. "We know, and
tbey' ktfpw: we kriow."
"Who'll tell?" asked the captain
shortly. "Not me. for I was In It as
bad as the rest. Not you, for they
know you and me were thlcker'n files
on a molasses stopper.; No; 'twas
'Goodby, Susan Jane.* so sfkr ai the
old Donne *ns concerned,' ahd I've
been expectin'. It. jVe.ll. I wasn't at
the funeral, so let's'forgit-it,"
-anil apparently Captain Titcomb did
forget It.    A good mnny, months were
to pass before Bradley was again to
hear his friend mention that subject.
(To Be Continued)
Quick Wit Saved Him.
William Faversham once saved himself a dismissal from a company in
his early days, through his quick wit.
"I had been- engaged as 'utility
man,'" he says, "with a company
-that opened a war play in a western
town. I had a difficult) part that .an
through every act, and it was -important, even if I had little to say or Jo.
I got along very well, and in spite of
the many costume changes I had, I
met with no difficulty until tha last
act. I was an 'orderly' in this scene
and I was hurrying to buckle my belt
when I heard my cue.
"I hastened 'to the wings. Some
one threw fuller's earth all over ma
to show that I had been riding hard,
and I dashed madly on just as the
•sound of hoofs died away. When I
reached the centre of the stage and
the applause had subsided, my hand
went into my tunic iOr my despatches,
which I was to hand to General Allen.    I had forgotten them! ,
"Now, these despatches furnished
the climax of the play, and something
had to be done and done quickly. I
felt my heart rise in my throat and
knew that everyone on Ihe stage waa
looking at me. The wait was growing awful, terrible, and I was just
about losing courage, when a brilliant
idea oame to me. I threw open my
shirt, ripped off a porous plaster I
was wearing and thrust it into the
general's hand. Then I staggered to a
chair and dropped exhausted. There,
was a round of wild applause, for the
audience thought I had been shot and
had covered the .wound with the despatches I"

A delegation of farmers from Iowa,
Nebraska, Illinois and Minnesota arrived at Winnipeg recently and were
taken out to the irrigation lands east
of the city. They were so pleaaed
with the country that they have pur-

President Falconer of Toronto "on tha
j, ''■■   >       Maritime   Provinces.
tn".his recent address to the Canadian Club of St! John,, N ,B., Dr.
R. A, Falconer, president' of ihe University of Toronto, Baid: Individuality
in countries, towns and persons is disappearing so fast that the interests,
and .richness of life are probably less
titan, they were. Let me urge you not
to. be over anxious to reproduce herei
the same type of living which is found
elsewhere. These provinces, if they
live their own simple and yet busy
lite, V. ill enrich the total life oi the*
Dominion more than by seeking to.
lollow the example of large and
wealth ier provinces. The very variety
of- liije here gives it character. Here-
there is no monotony of landscape, ami
you have the sounding sea running
far gjad wide and bringing Ships from,
foreign ports close to your own homes.
You .have the breadth and mystery of
the ocean, here no^one industry pre^
vails over all others. You have farmers, miners, lumbermen, those who.
foHo^ the sea, each with his way of
looking at life, and as they co-mingle,
each adding interest to the whole.
Ypu have many who by education
ond travel are able to impart their
refinement to (he conirannity, making
tlieir influence the more sensible a*
their are no cities large enough to»
dissipate the eultrre of the few. Irk
the tpwns and cities there are numbers of thoughtful, quiet people whoso,
interest in the higher side of life extends fnr more widely than thoy imagine. The provinces would ba distinctly the -poorer were these people*
to be gathered out of the towns and
centred in large and rapidly-growing
cities. If anything has.,.distinguished?
the Maritime'Provinces'ill the past it
has assuredly boon their reputation
for intelligence. Few countries of the-
new. world have had a higher average
of thoughtful competent citiy/nship.
For generations thp rights of the people have been understood, as also the-
necessity for intelligence in order that
the privileges of a democracy may be-
exercised. This has pertly; arisen,
through the-contest for political jus-_
tice. In the Maritime Provinces it
may not have been so violent as elsewhere, but it was very real.' Our fathers understood what they wanted,
and they learned to govern them-^
Canada'i Hunt For Trade.
The people and politicians of the
United States should take care lest
they underestimate' our neighbor or*
the north. The Canadian people ara-
displaying a remarkable spirit of enterprise and are reaching around us
lor trade through the south that should
naturally come to us. TMb friendship-
ot Canada haa been met halfway by
the Mexican Government, and a subsidised Pacific coast steamship line
has been established as, a result.
Ships of this line are not permitted
to wil for freight at any port in the
United States, but must can-/ only between Canadian and Mexican ports.
For this they receive a subsidy from
both countries. The enterprise may
not be an unqualified success, but it
is significant and calls for careful attention on the part of the American
people and of their representatives ia
congress.—Van Norden'a Magazi.-ie.

A Serious  Case of Chronic  Catarrh
Gradually Overcome By Pe-rumdii
Mr. Arthur Tremblay, 8 St. James
street, Mont Pleasunt, Que., Can.,
"About three years ago, catarrh in
its most serious form  assailed me.
"I consulted a specialist, who prescribed medicines as constitutional,
treatment and a liquid to use locally.
"This gave me relief for a time,
but soon afterwards the disease returned.
"I was then suffering very much,
my appetite had left me and I was
growing weaker.
"I had frequently read pamphlets
regarding the cures made by Peruna,
and although somewhat dubious as
to its doing me any good, I decided
to try a few bottles.
"I had nnt taken Peruna for more
than two weeks before a marked im-
provcment wns perceptible.
"As I continued taking the. remedy
the disease gradually disappenrtd,
and in a few months I was "entirely
rid of tha nauseous malady."

' Some of onr city papers in their ex-
itremo desire to uphold the Snnday
Evening Concert have stepped wide
,of the mark in their statements. One
,of the aldermen, who with the guilty
.editors, oertainly do not attend ohnroh

.outside pnblic believe that Vancouver
has a churoh seating capacity of only
6,000. To any person who takes a
.slight glance at the buildings this is not
true to fact. Sinoe reading the argument—that as we bave 75,000 people
and only 6,000 can go to chnroh, and
thus we mnst have a concert for 69,000—
we have taken upon ourselves to {reckon
.what capacity we have in onr churches
in order that we may properly inform
the pnbho. We find tbat in plaoe of
accommodating 6,000 there is room for
over 30,000 not including the numerous
missions and a few of the smaller denominations, altogether there is room

The Function of an
is first to draw attention and to leave a favorable
and as far as possible a lasting impression.
The first and principal object of a very great deal of. advertising
is not directly tbat of selling goods, bnt of establishing a worthy
fame—a recognized reputation—to make the goods and the honse
known. Customers mnst come with some idea of the goods tbey
seek, the more knowledge the better. With confidence inspired
by effective advertising, it is then np to the salesman to do the
rest—to make good by courtesy and a skillful presentation of the
wares which should be up to all that has been advertised.
THE ADVOCATE is the best advertising
medium for reaching Mt. Pleasant People—to
gain their favorable attention to your goods and

;The Tonic Treatment for  Indigestion
Is the Most Successful
• Loss -of   appetite',   coated tongue,
fcad taste in the  mouth, heavy, dull
Iheadache and a dull, sluggish feeling
—these are the symptoms of fftomach
-trouble.    Tliey indicate that the sto-
. 'liacli is on strike, that it is no longer
.-furnishing to the blood the full quota
•-of nourishment that   the    body    de-
l mands, hence    every    organ suffers.
There aie two methods of treatment—
1 the old one by which the stomach is
immured   by   the   use   of pre-d'gested
. foods and artificial ferments, and the
-ew ono—The   Dr.    Williams'    Pink
i.Pills method—by whicn tlie stomach
us loned up to do the work nature intended of it.    A recent cure by the
tonic treatment is that of Mrs. Jas.
W. Haskell, Pqrt Maitland, N.S.   She
eays:    "For years  I enjoyed perfect
health, but suddenly headaches seised
._ne.   I had a ba_ taste in my mouth;
' Tiiy tongue was coated; 1 grew tired
*   and oppressed;  my  appetite left me
'•• and such food as I did eat only caused
" distress.    I had severe pains in my
'  chest.    I lost all strength   and   was
v of ten seized with vomiting.   At differ-
isnt times I was treated by some of
our best doctors, but although I followed their treatment carefully 1 did
mot get any better.   One   day   while
reading a paper I dame across a case
similar to mine which had been cured
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.   I imme-
diately purchased a supply and it was
wot long before they  began to help
me.   1 grew stronger day by day till
now I am as healthy as I ever was.
Ci /have a good appetite,   am    strong
sand active   and   can   attend   to   my
household duties without fatigue.    I
Siave no hesitation in recommending
»r.   Williams' Pink   Pills to all sufferers from indigestion."

A   Vienna   Specialist's   Ideas   on   This
Fascinating Subject.
The old fashioned definition of
beauty sleep was the sleep that Is
taken before midnight. Beauty sleep
Is the sleep a woman gets after she
has slppt seven hours and before she
has slept nine, says a Viennese specialist.
A woman needs all of seven hours'
sleep for tbe building up of ber system. Then she needs two hours more
for this recuperation of her body, and
the extra two hours will restore ber
complexion, make her eyes bright, take
the wrinkles out of her face and keep
her form elastic.
The woman who wants to derive the
fullest benefit from her beauty sleep
will compose hei mind before sinking
off Into slumber. She will think
pleasant thoughts. Worrying makes
furrows In the brow and sets lines
around the mouth. A little light ln n
bedroom is a good thing for some people, for it will act cheerfully upon tbe
nerves aiid drive away nightmare.
Do not allow yourself to be. awak
ened ln tbe morning If you mean to gel
beauty sleep, or If you must be aroused
let It be ever so gently. Do not wake
up with a start, with an alarm clock
or ln consequence of a bell ringing,
for any of these sounds will Jar the
nerves and destroy some of the good
the sleep bas done you.

The late Henrik Ibsen upheld the
superiority of women in his dramas,
but In real life be considered tbem inferior to men In many lines of usefulness generally classed as feminine. For
example, bis friend, John Panlsen,
f j the London Times says tbat one of
Ibsen's maxims was this: "No woman
can write a cookery book, and no woman cnn sew a button on fast."      '
He lived up to tbe latter part of his
dictum. When be detected a loose button ion any of his garments be retreated to his owu den, locked himself In
nnd with elaborate preparations sewed the button on. He took as much
pains with the work as he would with
the final copy 'of one of his plays.
Tben he used to brag about the performance, saying that he would not
put trust In a button sewed on by any
woman, not even by his wife. His-
wife used to laugh. Sho confided to
Paulson that she secretly resewed all
the buttons tbat tbe poet had sewed-
sewed them as only a woman can, she;
said. He always forgot to fasten the
thread. "Bui don't undeceive blm,"

A Summer Dish  For WintJr Time.
Fried tomatoes are a luxury that
I'ompnratively few housewives can afford to serve during tbe winter months,
yet if they will follow this old Maryland recipe this dish may be eujoyed
ou the coldest days of the year as easily as In the middle of summer, says
the Delineator. To accomplish this
feat, however, the tomatoes must first
lie cooked In the summer, wheu they
ure plentiful. Select the large, firm
tomatoes and fry them just as you
would if you Intended them for immediate service. Then pack them In
medium sized stone jars while still
hot and poor a rather thi-. Coating of

When you desire to serve them remove the siloes carefully, relieve tbem

Yorkshiremsn  Now  Include Them as
an Article of Diet.
Sad tidings for snails comes from
Yorkshire. Hitherto it has been
commonly supposed that the virtues
of the snail as an article of diet have
only been appreciated b.v our French
neighbors, but this is a mistake, for
in the coal mining village of Knott-
ingley, Yorkshire, a few miles from
Wakefield, the snail appears to be so
eagerly sought after as a table delicacy that a snail famine is feared.
It is estf_nated that for many years
snails have been consumed in Knott-
ingley nt the rnte of nearly a quarter
of a million. The origin of the custom is curious The lotial medical
dispensary was in need of funds, sn
an enterprising local publican hit upon the happy idea of offering boiled
snails at six a penny to his customers,
the proceeds to co to the dispensary.
The Yorkshire miner is not extraordinarily particular what he eats, and
his sporting instincts are keen, therefore contests as to who ftould eat the
•riost snails soon became popular.
Otber public-houses in the district
•ook to making si—ilnr delicacies, and
;n this way r"i"=Hr»rnble sums were
raised, one public-house alone raisins
">45 a year in thi" way. Once started,
the taste for boiled snails developed,

he said, 'that they do not appear to
have nrod""'»d anv ill' offer's naon the
neople." There is a firm local belief
that a snail eaten alive is a certain
cure for consumption if tal-on in tbe
early stages of tli» disioaoo. The snails
are gathered from the wnlU and hedge

Workmen Discovered Cremated Remains of Woman In Tin Box.
dome excitement was caused in
West Ealing, England, recently, owing to a rumor that a tin trunk containing charred human remains had
been found in a house in that locality.
Workmen are engaged in pulling
down the houae, and while examining
a cupboard, says The London News
Agency, they discovered a box about
18 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 9
inches in height. The box was sealed and conveyed to the police station, where it was opened by the divisional surgeon. Dr. Bennet, who pronounced the contents to be the cremated' remains of human bones. The
ashes were perfectly white, and among
them were small pieces of bone.
The police at ohce instituted inquiries and found tha.t the box belonged to a former tenant of the houBe.
It contained the ashes of his first
wife, who* hadVb?en cremated. He
was able to convince the police that
everything was in order by producing
a certificate of death and cremation.
He said that the box had been left
behind by accident.
It appears that upon the death of
bis first wife the tenant in question
caused the body to be cremated. The
presence of such a gruesome relic in
the home evidently proved distasteful to the second wife. Consequently
the casket was taken to the gentleman's offices—part of the house in
question—where it was placed in a
tin trunk, which was locked and deposited in the back room.
Swsl-.enham Explains.
Sir Frank Swettenham writes a long
latter' „to The Times concerning the
circurrtstancer which led to his resignation as governor of Jamaica. "The
governor,1' he says, "did as he was
commanded, withdrew his whole letter, apologized, nnd resigned his post.
He could not dp otherwise. The net
result is that, a foreign admiral having twice landed armed men in a
British colony (the second time in direct opposition to the expressed wishes
of the governor), and having, under
the circumstances described been re-_
quested to re-embark them, the writer
of that request has been compelled
to withdraw it t"id to apologize for
making it. He was not directed to
withdraw any words or sentences in
the letter, but the whole letter. It
would, therefore, appear that in future there is nothing to prevent a foreign power from landing armed men
lit a British colony, even though the
colony is garrisoned by British troops
ahd the chief British authority declares that he is not in need of foreign assistance. This'is a sufficiently serious situation, which might easily be complicated by the landing of
armed parties from the vpssels of several foreign powers, to be brought in
contact with each other and with a
native population excited by the strain
of very unusual circumstances."

. And yet this is just what thousands
of us are doing in regard to our
health. By worry, overwork, anxiety
or .the. disobedience ..of the laws of
nature, tha energy and vigor of the
body is wasted mote rapidly than t
is built up, and the. result is tliofjaiik-
i'.:; tcy of the health and the decay
of the body.
Dr. Chases Nerve Food may be
likened to the rich 'fiend, for it supplies in condensed and easilv as
similated form the very ingredients
from which nature constructs nervous energy and bui'ds up tlie human
system. ...
Sleeplessness, headaches, indigestion, loss of appetite, tired wornout
feelings, spells of weakness and despondency are some of the symptoms of exhaustion wliich point to
the approach of nervous prostration,
locomotor  ataxia  and   paralysis.
No one would think of neglecting
Such ailments if they realize their
condition, but they do not. so gradual and insidious ..is theii' approach.
Miss Lena Herbert, Lcve Farm,
Man. writes: "I had suffered.for two
years with dizzy spells, pain™ in tlie
oacr.. cold hands and feet, nervousness jerking - of the limbs, sore
tongue, soreness of arms and shoulders, and general exhaustion. About
seve-i months ago I became so nervous that I could not rest or.sleep, and
coul 1 not do tho 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 always 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 this preparation, and it has built
me up unti' I am now strong and well
again. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has
done me a world of good, and I feel
that I cannot recom nend it too highly to persons who suffer as I have."
If you are persistently subject to
these symptoms you are in danger.
Your b'ood must be enriched. Your
nerves must be invigorated. Your

Law  and   Gooseberries,
Under the headline, "An Expensive
Gooseberry Bush," an Austrian paper
prints this story:  "On the boundary
line of two farms near R there is
a large gooseberry bush, from wliien
the two farmers have for years gathered the product. 'What grows on
my side is njine, and you may have
the rest,' was the agreement. Three
years ago the neighbors had a misunderstanding, and this came to n
climax when the gooseberries became
ripe. A law-suit followed and appeals
were made to higher judicial bodies.
The final decision has just been recorded. This gives to both parties
the right to pick the berries which
grow on their side of the line—just as
it wns originally—and denies the right
to destroy the bush to both of them.
The costs were charged half to each
litigant. Each farmer had to pay 225
kronen. The yearly yield .-i the bush
will bring nbout one-half krone and
the judge told fhe fighting farmers:
'With good luck it will take you only
eight hundred years to make the bush
pay.   Take good care of it.'"

THIS incident really happened only
the other day. Indeed, very likely
it occurs often.
Tbe pike saw Mr. Bullhead quietly
swimming toward him. Now, the pike
was a monster, while the other weighed
but a half pound.
"Here comes my breakfast," said Mr.
Pike to himself.
He swooped upon Mr. Bullhead and
seized him In his great jaws.
But the victim did not give up so
asily. Ruffling the sharp thorn-like
spines on either side of his head, so
that they pierced the throat of his enemy, he stayed In that position; nor
would he move ln or out.
The pike, by this tlpie.., would gladly
have gone'without his-breakfast, but it
was now Impossible to rid himself of
Mr. Bullhead. And so they were found,
both dead, when washed ashore.
T'S TOO bad that Laura and Elsie

who were enemies.   '
She dearly loved to see every one
happy. It was always Marian who
patched up the little quarrels that
sprang up between her friends. This
won for her the name of ""The Peacemaker." No one ever quarreled with
The enmity between Laura and Elsie
provided her with the most stubborn-
case she had ever tried to remedy.
Two weeks had passed; still the girls
refused to become friends.
Next day both Laura and Elsie received invitations to a strange kind of
party Marian was to give within the
next few days. She explained that not
one word was to be said at the gathering, and thnt each boy and girl was
to look as sad as possible.
Harry, Marian's brother, was taken
Into her confidence. He promised faithfully to do his part.
Perhaps Harry could haVe told how
it was that Laura and Elsie found
themselves together In the cloakroom
when they arrived the evening of the
party. And It Is probable that he knew;
how the doorfMiad been locked when
Laura, seeking to pass hastily, from tha *
room, found It, closed against her.
In dismay,  ahe   was   -taut    to   call,
when she remembered that this was to •
be a "silent" party.    She knocked upon
the door, but no one seemed to hear.
Laura stood stiffly In one corner,
while Elsie occupied another. Neither
looked at the other.
Each minute seemed an hour. It was
growing worse and worse. Without
thinking, Elsie let escape Just the beginning of a sigh. She checked herself
instantly. But-the funny side of their
situation had suddenly dawned on Laura, and she couldn't he,lp smiling. Nor
could Laura forbear smiling in return.
Both faces became serious again almost immediately, but the smile had
done its work, and when Harry opened
the door, a moment later, each little
girl felt so happy that it was hard, Indeed, to look solemn.
All sort* of delightful games were
played, but no one vaa_ permitted to
smile or speak a word until the end.
Then Harry, who had been watching
Laura and Elsie, suddenly burst into a
hearty laugh.        ,
"I've got to, or I'll burst!" he shouted, and oft he went Into a succession
of spasms.
"Glad to know you're amused," said
Elsie loftily.
Carry's only answer was another guf-
"Since Harry has to pay the forfeit,
we may all talk now," smilingly remarked Marian.
In parting, she said to the group:
"Don't you think it's silly to be sad
and solemn when you might enjoy
yourself with your friends?"
"If you're speaking of me," replied
Elsie, cheerfully, "you refer to the
wrong person, for I'm not ln the least
"Nor I," broke in Laura. Then and
there they clasped hands and kissed
each other. As the boys and girls departed they agreed that the party had
been a grand success, but it is Safe to
say that none was happier than Laura
or Elsie.

Ihe 'Pirates'•would' clean out our

"Just let 'em try it!" cried Captain

the Bloodv Pirates, on a little island
right  in the middle of the creek.
Finding   another    island     close   by,
the   ".jobbers"   established   headquarters   there,   with   the   decided   advantage  of  knowing   where  the    "Pirates" m
met; while  the  ';Piru}e.",.kneW noth—.'

But 'matters were altogether altered now that the "Straws'! knew of

the "Robbers." The creek wasn't

"Robb-*'   Cave"   and   "Pirates'   Cove. '
A tin-ill in,-;- session had just been
completed at the "Robbers' " headquarters.
Skinny arose, In the excitement forgetting some of his usual majesty of
manner. But, good general as he
was, he had already carefully mapped
out a plan of action.
He s ukb sharply: "Ye see, we've
both got to i. 'fend ourselves and
smash the 'Pirates'' cave all to
smithereens at due and the same
time.   .
"Jack W^mer, at '.iout 4 o'clock,
'spose Jou- swim, as quiet as you can,
to 'Pirates' Cave,' and hide yerself
In the bushes neur their landln'-

Juii's a bulldjg what'll keep a hundred

"Me n' Pete Hamilton an' Bill Mumford an' Bill Br»nt an' Joe Stanton '11

Skinny'* plans succeeded finely.   Jack
Warner   reached the   "Pirates'" island
unobserved,  and  was able  to cut half
way   through   most  of*" the   ropes   tha
held   the pirate ciaft  together without
being Eeen.
At 5 o'clock the "Bloody Pirates*.' set
sail on their raft. No sooner were they
out of sight than Jack signaled to his
companions hidden on the shore. They
twain quickly over. All turned to, and
with the "Pirates' " own shovels filled
the cave up with dirt, first taking out
all the treasures contained therein.
Meanwhile the "Pirates" stealthily
poled their raft up the creek. They
were about a rod from "Robbers' Cave,"
when suddenly a volley of horse chestnuts came at them.
The "I'iruUs" were astonished. They
thought that at this late hour surely all
the "Robbers" would be in town.
But none could boast a braver leader
than Mike Flannigan.
"Come on. fellers!" he shouted.
"Yes, come on!" was the tantalizing
yell of the "Robbers."
Smarting under the shower of dirt
clods and horse chestnuts, the"Plrates"
poled more energetically. All at once
the ropes weakened where Jack had cut
them partly through and half the "Pirates" were thrown into the water.
Daring Bill Mumford Immediately cast
riff on the "Robbers' " raft, and, with
the' aid of Pete Hamilton, succeeded ln
making Mike Flannigan captive, although ret until all three wore blnck
'yes and bloody noses. On shore the
prisoner waa forced to surrender all his
mal-bles, a jackknife, fishing tackle and
a dandy sinker, and other valuables before he was jet go.
Without their leader the "Pirates"
sadly swam back to their Island, only lo
find it In possession of a savage bulldog and several equally savage "Robber*."
"Pirates' Cove" was no nr-t.

A llttle girl who was lunching out

The child disappointedly answered:
"It's so good, ma, 1 thought I'd take a

A llttle girl came home flushed with

NO ONE was fonder of gems than
the old rajah. So that When a;
humble miner uncovered one ofthe most beautiful diamonds In the
world he faithfully took it to Hh»
rajah and presented it to him. The-
mlner ret—ved a hahdsoms reward,
after which the rajah prdered the diamond to be polished and cut ln the
most handsome style.
Hours at a lime did lie spend' ln admiration  of  this   splendid   stone.   Not
a day passed hut what he did not take-

The son of the rajah now became
ruler and brought with hlin a new
prime minister.
Although no one knew It, this prime
minister was a rogue. He had the key
to the golden cage in which the parrot was kept, and he alone gave It
food. He Just -simply ceased to feed*
it and, of course, It died naturally.
As soon as the bird was dead, lie-
opened It and secured the diamond.
Then he killed another parrot and
painted It to look like the first. This
