CHAPTER XXIII.
TROVE and the bank official
were ln Hillsborough soon after
sunrise the morning of that
memorable day. The young
man rapped loudly ou the broad door
at the Sign of the Dial, but within all
was silent. Tbe day before Darrel had
spoken of going off to the river towns
and must have started. A lonely feeling came into the boy's heart as he
turned away. He went promptly to
the house of the district attorney and
told all he knew of tbe money tbat he
bad put in the bank. He recounted all
that took place the afternoon of bis
Stay at Robin's Inn—the battles of tbe
cocks, and the spider, and how tbe
wounded fowl had probably sprinkled
his sleeve with blood.
In half an hour news of the young
man's trouble hud gone to every bouse
ln the village. Soon a score of his
schoolmates and half the faculty were
at his side—there ln the room of justice. Theron Allen arrived at 0 o'clock,
although at that hour two responsible
men had already given a bail bond.
After dinner Trove, a constable and
the attorney rode to Robin's Inn. Thd
news had arrived before them, but
only the two boys and Tunk were at
home. The latter stood ln front of the
Stable, looking earnestly up the road.
"Hello!" said he, gazing curiously at
horse and men as they came up to the
door. He seemed to be eying tbe attorney with hopeful anticipation.
"Tunk," said Trove cheerfully, "you
have a mournful eye."
Tunk advanced slowly, still gazing,
both bands in his trousers pockets.
"Ez Tower just went by," said be,
with suppressed feeling. "Said you
was arrested for murder."
"I presume you were surprised."
"Waal," said he, "Ez ain't said a
word before in six months."
Tunk opened the horse's, mouth and
stood a moment peering thoughtfully
at his teeth.
"Kind of unexpected to be spoke to
by Ez Tower," he added, turning his
eyes upon them with the same curious
look.
The interrogation of Tunk and the
two boys began immediately. The
story of the fowl corroborated, the
sugar bush became an object of Investigation Milldam was ten miles away,
and it was quite possible for the young
man to have ridden there and back between the hour when Tunk left him
and that of sunrise, when he met Mrs.
Vaughn at her door. Trove and Tunk
Hosely went with the officers down a
lane to the pasture and thence Into the
wood by a path ttiey followed that
night to and from the shanty.
They discovered nothing new save
one remarkable circumstance tbat baffled Trove and renewed the waning
suspicion of the men of the law. On
almost a straight line from bush to
barn were tracks of a man that showed
plainly where they came out of the
grass upon the garden soil. Now, the
strange part of It lay In this fact—the
boots of Sidney Trove exactly fitted
the tracks. They followed the footprints carefully Into the meadow grass
and up to the stalk of the mullein.
Near the top of It was the abandoned
borne of tbe spider and around It
were the four snares Trove had observed, now full of prey.
"Do not disturb the grass here," said
Trove, "and I will prove to you that
tbe tracks were made before the night
ln question. Do you see the four
,webs?"
"Yes," said the attorney.
"Tbe tracks go under tbem," said
Trove, "and must, therefore, bave been
made before the webs. I will prove to
you tbat tbe webs were spun before
2 o'clock of the day before yesterday.
At tbat hour I saw the spinner die.
See, ber lair Is deserted."
He broke the stalk of mullein and
tbe cables of spider silk that led away
from it, and all Inspected the empty
lab-. Then be told of that deadly battle ln tbe grass.
"But these webs might bave been
tbe work of another spider," said tbe
attorney.
"It matters not," Trove Insisted, "for
tbe webs were spun at least twelve
hours before tbe crime. One of them
contains the body of a red butterfly
with starred wings. We cut the wings
tbat day, and Miss Vaughn put them
ln a book she was reading."
Paul brought the wings, whlcb exactly fitted the tiny torso of tbe butterfly. They could discern the footprints, one of which had broken tbe
ant's road, while another was completely covered by the butterfly snare.
"Those tracks were made before the
webs, that ls evident." said the attnr-
i ney. ' ''De** you _now who made the
tracts ?'*
"I do not," was the answer of the
young man.
Trove remained at Robin's Inn that
night, and after the meu had gone be
recalled a circumstance that was like
a flash of lightning ln tbe dark of his
great mystery.
Once at the Sign of the Dial his
friend the tinker had shown him a pair
of new boots. He remembered they
were of the same size aud shape as
those he wore.
"We could wear tbe same boots,"
he had remarked to Darrel.
"Had I to do sucb penance I should
be damned," the tinker had answered.
"Look, boy, mine are the larger by far.
There's a man coming to see me at the
Christmas time, a man o' busy feet
That pair in your hands I bought for
him."
"Day before yesterday," said Tunk
that evening, "I was up in the sugar
bush after a bit o' blckory, an' I see
a man there, an' I didn't have no Idee
who 'twas. He was tall and had white
hair an' whiskers an' a short blue
coat. When I first see him he was set-
tin' on a log, but 'fore I come nigh he
got up an' made off."
Although meager, the description
was sufficient. Trove had no longer
any doubt of this—that the stranger
he had seen at Darrel's bad been hiding ln the bush that day whose events
were now so important.
Whoever had brought the money, ho
must have known much of the plans
aud habits of tbe young man, and, tbe
night before Trove's arrival at Robin's
Inn, be came probably to the sugar
woods, where be spent the next day ln
hiding.
Tbe young man was deeply troubled.
Polly and her mother sat well into tbe
nlgbt with blm, hearing the story of
his life, which he told ln full, saving
only the sin of his father. Of that be
had neither the right not;, the heart to
tell.
"God only knows what is the next
chapter," said he at last. "It may rob
me of all that I love ln this world.''
"But not of me," said Polly, whispering in his ear.
"I wish I were sure of that," he answered.
•       *•»••*
Among those who got off the train
at Hillsborough one day was a big,
handsome youth of some twenty years.
In all the crowd there were none had
ever seen him before. Dressed ln the
height of fashion, he was a figure so
extraordinary that all eyes observed
him as he made his way to the tavern.
Trove and Polly and Mrs. Vaughn
were ln that curious throng on the
platform, where a depot was being
built.
"My! What a splendid looking fellow!" said Polly as the stranger passed.
Trove had a swift pang of jealousy
that moment. Turning, he saw Rlluy
Brooke standing near them in a group
of villagers.
"I tell you, he's a' thief," the boy
beard him saying, and the words seemed to blister as they fell, and ever
after when he thought of them a great
sternness lay like a shadow on his
brow.
"I must go," said be, calmly turning
to Polly. "Let me help you into the
wagon."
Wben they were gone he -food a moment thinking. He felt as if he were
friendless and alone.
"You're a giant today," said a friend,
passing him, but Trove made no answer. Roused incomprehensibly, his
heavy muscles bad become tense, and
be had an odd consciousness of their
power. The people were scattering,
and he walked slowly down the street.
Tbe sun was low, but be thought not
of home or wbere he should spend til
night It was now the third day after
bis arrest Since noon he had been
looking for Darrel, but tbe tinker's
door had been locked for daye, according to the carpenter who was at work
below. For an hour Trove walked,
passing up and down before that familiar stairway, In the hope of seeing
bis friend. Daylight was dim when
the tinker stopped by the stairs and
began to feel for his key. The young
man was quickly at the side of Darrel.
"God be praised!" said the latter,
"Here ls the old Dial an' the strong an'
noble Trove. I heard o' thy trouble,
boy, far off on the post road, an' I bave
made baste to come to thee."
CHAPTER XXTV.
ROVE had been reciting the hie
tory of his trouble and had
finished with bitter words.
,'£ih.TX,A    —C,     tl>__       IMS—"     0-.1.1
T
the tinker as Trove sat betuTe him
wltb tears of anger In his eyes.
"Watch yonder pendulum and say not
a word until it has ticked forty times.
For wbat are thy learning au' thy
mighty thews If they do not bear thee
up in time o' trouble? Now ts thy trial
come before the Judge of all. Up wltb
thy head, boy, an' be acquitted o' weakness au' fear an' evil passion."
"We deserve better of blm," said
Trove, speaking of Riley Brooke.
When all others hated htm we were
kind to the old sinner, and it has done
him no good."
"Ah, but has it done thee goodl
There's the question," said Darrel, his
hand upon the boy's arm.
"I believe It has," said Trove, with a
look of surprise.
"It was thee I thought of, boy. I hud
never much thought o' blm."
That moment Trove saw farther Into
the depth of Darrel's heart than ever
before. It startled him. Surely hen
was a man that passed all understanding.
Darrel crossed to bis bench and began to wind the clocks.
"Put away thy unhappfness," said he
gently. "No harm shall come to thee.
'Tis only a passing cloud."
"You're right, and I'm not going to
be a fool," said Trove. "It has brought
me one item of good fortune."
"An' that is?"
"I have discovered who ls my father."
"An' know ye wbere he Is now?" tho
tinker Inquired.
"No; but I know lt Is he to whom
you gave the boots at Christmas time."
"Hush, boy," said Darrel In a whisper, his hand raised.
He crossed to the bench, returning
quickly and drawing his chair In front
of the young man.
"Once upon a time," he whispered,
sitting down and touching the palm of
bis opeu band witb the Index finger
of the other, "a youth beld In bis hand
a cup, rare an' costly, an' lt was full
o' happiness, an' he was tempted to
drink. 'Ho, there, me youth,' said oue
wbo saw him, 'that is the happiness of
another.' But he tasted the cup, an'
It was bitter, an' he let It fall, an' the
other lost his great possession. Now,
that bitter taste was ever on the
tongue o* the youth, so that his own
cup had always the flavor o' woe."
Tbe tinker paused a moment, looking sternly Into tbe face of the young
man.
"I adjure thee, boy, touch not the
cup of another's happiness, or It may
Imbitter tby tongue. But If thou be
foolish an' take It up, mind ye do not
drop lt."
"I shali be careful—I shall neither
taste nor drop lt," said Trove.
"God bless thee, boy! Thou'rt come
to a great law—who drains the cup of
another's happiness shall flud It bitter,
but who drains tbe cup of another's
bitterness shall And lt sweet."
A silence followed, In which Trove
sat looking at tbe old man whose words
were like those of a prophet. "I have
no longer any right to seek my father,"
he thought. "And, though I meet him
face to face, I must let blm go his
way."
Suddenly there came a rap at the
door, and when Darrel opened It they
saw only a letter hanging to the latch.
It contained these words, but no signature:
"There'll be a bonfire and some fun
tonight at 12 ln tbe middle of Cook's
field. Messrs. Trove and Darrel are
invited."
"Curious," said Darrel. "It has tbi
look o' mischief."
"Oh, It's only the boys and a bit of
skylarking," said Trove. "Let's go and
see what's up.   It's near the time."
Tbe streets were dark and silent as
they left the shop. They went up a
street beyond tbe village limits and
looked off In Cook's field, but saw no
"Down to your knees, man."
light there. While they stood looking
a flame rose and spread. Soon they
could see figures ln the light and,
climbing the fence, they hastened
across an open pasture. Coming near,
they saw a score of men with masks
upon their faces.      ,
"Give him the tar and feathers," said
a strange voice.
"Not if he will confess an* seek forgiveness," another answered.
"Down to your knees, man, an' make
no outcry, an' see you repeat the word.':
careruiiy us l speas thefil or you' go
borne ln tar and feathers."
They could bear the sound of a scuffle and shortly tbe phrases of a prayer
spoken by one voice and repeated by
another.
They were far back ln tbe gloom,
but could bear each word of tbat which
follows: "0 God, forgive me—I am a
liar and a hypocrite—I bave the toagas
of scandal and deceit—I have robbei
tbe poor—I have defamed tbe good—
and, Lord, I nm sick—with the rottenness of my own heart. And hereafter—
I will cheat no more—and speak no
evil of any one.  Amen."    <
"Now go to your home, Riley
Brooke," said the voice, "an' hereafter
mind your tougue or you shall ride a
rail In tar and feathers."
They could see the crowd scatter,
and some passed near them, running
nway ln the darkness.
'Stoop there an' say not a word,"
the tinker whispered, crouching In the
g'-ass.
When all were out of hearing they
started for the little shop.
"Hereafter," said Darrel as they
walked along, "God send he be more
careful with the happiness of otlier
men. I do assure thee, boy, it Is bitter,
bitter, bitter!"

MOTHER'S  DAY OFF.
A Novel Plan That Worked Splendidly
Try It.
"I'd been married twelve years before it dawned on me tbat witb thu
exception of my wife, every one in
tbe bouse bod a day off ouce a week,"
said the man.
"I suppose a woman does generally
have rather a bad time of lt in that
way," I remarked.
"I always had Sundays," he continued, "the children bad Saturdays aud
Sundays, too, and one of the maids
had every Wednesday, while tbe other
was free on Thursdays. But when I
began to tblnk lt over it seemed to me
tbat tbe wife never by any chance got
a day entirely to herself."
"What did you do?"
"We talked It over together first,
then the wife consulted the maids, and
as soon as tbey grasped tbe idea tbey
were as keen as mustard to do wbat
tbey could to help.
"Finally we decided that every Tuesday tbe servants, tbe children and I
were to be left entirely to our own
devices. Tbe wife might stay ln bed
all day If sbe liked, go away, shop,

TO VISIT KI1G EDWARD.^
Heiress to "Carman Sylva's" Thron*
. One of His Cleverest Nieces.
The Crown Princess Marie of Kou-
mania and the Crown Prince are to
be the guests of King Edward and
Queen Alexandra during several weeks
of the London season, and will be
present with their Majesties at Ascot
races.
The princess is the eldest daughter
of the late Duke of Coburg and of
the Duchess Marie, and is one of the
most gifted of King Edward's nieces.
She was little more than a child
when she was married to the heir of
the Roumanian throne. Ignoring conventions, she is frequently to be seen
walking in the streets in Bucharest,
with one or more of her beautiful
children, but otherwise unattended,'
and while the exhibition was open
there last summer visitors would meet.
her roaming through the courts with
her little girls like ordinary tourists..
The princess is greatly beloved in!
her husband's country—indeed, her
popularity is second only to that of
her mother-in-law, Queen Carmen
Sylva. 8he spends most of the summer at a charming countrv seat at
Sinaia, on the borders of Roumania
and Hungary, where King Charles
and Queen Carmen Sylva have their
summer palace.-
Two years ar_o the princess visited
England, and lived during a part of
the summer, with her children, in a
little villa at Cowes.
Her beauty and her magnificent
dresses and jewels made the princess
a notable figure at King Edward's
coronation feteB. She is very fond
of outdoor sports, and her hobby is
wood-carving.
BOY BURGLAR'S OUTFIT.
Arms and  Make-Up of Leader of Juvenile   Band.
An amusing story of the exploits of
Frank Taylor, the boy burglar of
Robin Hood Lane 8tation, who was
charged with shooting at Mr. Damon,,
a solicitor, of Carshaltou, was told
recently.
Taylor was caught in Mr. Damon's
house, and when his story of having
entered it by mistake was not believed, he fired a shot at Mr. Damon from
a revolver, and attempted to escape.
j He was captured after a struggle, in
which he bit Mr. Damon's hand severely.
i    Edwin John Barrett, 14 years old,
1 was also arrested  as one of his accomplices, and he made a confession
in which he declared that he had ac-
I companied Taylor on ten expeditions,
i the object of which was robbery. He
j said   that  Taylor   forced   him   to   ac-
i company him, and stand outside while
Taylor entered  the  houses.
The police stated that they found
the  following  articles  in  his   room:
A pair of handcuffs.
Black velvet coat, with ruffles and
trimmed with lace at the cuffs.
Pair of jack  boots with spurs.
Three sword bayonets.
Three air guns.
A broech-loadinir fowline piece.
Several  wicrs  and   moustaches.
A theatrical make-up box.
They also found a larpp quantity of
sensational literature, nnd they learned that the boy had taken lessons in
wrestling and in the use ol firearms.
On the Scrap Heap.
In an Irish court recently an old
man was called into the witness box,
and being infirm and just a little
blind, he went too far in more than
one sense. Instead of keeping up the
stairs that led to the box, he mounted those that led to the bench. Said
the judge, good  hnmoredly:
"Is it a judge yon want to be, my
good man?'*
"Ah, sure, your honor," was the
reply. "I'm an ould man now, and
mebbe it's all I'm fit lor."
The judge had no rendv retort.        '
How an Earl Won a Bride.
The "ashes" were not the only trophy Lord Darnley brought back in
triumph from Australia. He brought
back a bride as well. At one of the
cricket matches the tall young Englishman lost his handkerchief, and
the day being extremely hot, enquire.!
of his friends if any one of them had
a spare handkerchief that he might
loan.
Immediately a very feminine 'kerchief, sweet scented and of delicate
fabric, was handed to him from some
invisible source. It was a most acceptable convenience that hot day.
and after the match he expressed his
desire to thank the kindly lady. An
introduction to Miss Florence Murphy followed. She was the daughter
of a Victoria magistrate and a member of Sir W. J. Clarke's household
as governess to the younger children.
The acquaintance so romantically
commenced ripened nnder the kindly
chaperonage of Lady Clarke, an engagement following which stood the
test of a long absence in England after the cricketing tour. Then the
faithful swain, wno is now a representative Irish peer, returned to Australia, claimed his bride, and bore
her ofl in triumph.—Tit-Bita.
Hides In a Chimney.
An amusing story of a bookmaker's
device to escape arrest was told at
Liverpool, when John Cain, aged 28,
was remanded, charged with keeping
a betting house.
Three detectives went to the place
on Saturday, and found Cain standing
at the back door taking bets from two
young men. When he say the office—t
lie ran in and fastened the door, having previously let a bullterrier loose
in the yard.
The dog having been pacified, the
officers burst in the door and searched the house, but Cain had mysteriously disappeared. After a long and
patient search he was found up the
chimney of an upper room.
Cain was quite out of sight, and it
was only beeause soot was notice-
in the fireplace that suspicion of the
hiding-place occurred. Detective Sergeant Whitley pnt his arm up the
chimney and caught a boot. Cain waa
then carefully pulled down and taken
into custody. He looked a sorry spectacle.       . a .     .   •

Legislative Annex of the Special Interests  In Congress.
The third house, as the lobby Is sometimes called, ls tbe legislative annex
of the special Interests. It ls the
house of special representatives, and
Its membership is a curious study ln
the widely different
Its meeting place Is the lobby and
committee rooms of the nation's capital, the hotel rotunda, the lawyer's
offlce, the street, the banquet room,
the little back room, the bar, the road
house, the home, the brothel—anywhere the legislator may be found and
personally approached. That is the
object of a lobby—personal contact
with the people's representatives and
the Influence upon legislation worked
thereby.
If legislators were perfect, there
would be no lobby. If they were perfectly wise, there would be no occasion for the lobbyist who desires "to
inform" them; lf perfectly honest,
there would be no occasion for tbe
lobbyist who desires to "make it worth
while;" lf perfectly patriotic, there
wonld be no occasion for the lobbyist
wbo desires for himself "a little personal favor"—at the people's expense.
I The existence of a lobby Is premised
on human frailty. It Is present to
prey on human weakness, to warp the
action of the legislative body by appeal to vanity, Ignorance, cupidity or
fear.—GUson Gardner In Success Magazine.

ZAM-BUK  CURES A CASE  WHICH
FOR TWO YEARS HAD DEFIED
EVERY   REMEDY   TRIED
A  Farmer's  Grateful  Testimony
No case of eczema, skin disease, or
ulceration, should be despaired of until Zam-I.uk has been applied. The
case of Mr, Francis Penott, of St.
Anne's (Man.), i.s a powerful illustration of *—im-Buk's eflicacy. He says:
"I suffered from eczema for two years,
and tried a great number of remedies.
None of them, however, seemed to do
ine any good. The ailment wus mostly
In my legs, and both these were
actually raw from the knees down. A
small sample box of Zam-Buk was
given to me, and even so small a
uuantlty as that did me a llttle good.
I then obtained a proper supply, and
liy the time I had used a few boxes I
was  completely  cured."
Zam-Buk differs from ordinary
salves and embrocations In containing na animal oil or fat. It is compounded from rich, healing, herbal
essences, and Is an Ideal natural combination of power and purltT'. It Is
highly antiseptic, and instantly kills
bacilli and disease germs, which settling on to wounds and skin diseases
set up festering, blood poison, etc.
For cuts, burns, bruises, ulcers,
abscesses, pimples, boils, skin eruptions, scalp sores, spreading sores,
children's skin troubles, chailng sores,
etc., Zam-Buk Is unequalled. It also
cures piles. All druggists and stores

to be long, and tbe king became very
thirsty. But no fountain or river could
be found near tbe spot on the plain
where they rested for a short Interval.
At last one of the courtiers spied a
large garden not far off. It was filled
with trees bearing lemons, oranges and
grapes. His followers begged the
monarch to partake of the good things
In the garden.
"Heaven forbid that I should eat
anything thereof," said the king, "for
lf I permitted myself to gather but an

Prof. Adams', of McGill, Optimistic
Address to  Empire Club.
Prof. Frank D. Adams ol McGill
University, Montreal, iii a recent address to tlie Empire Club, Toronto, on
"llie Undeveloped Resources oi tlio
Dominion" said that it was somewhat
like carrying coals to Newcastle tor
anyone from a distance to speak upon
the mineral resources of the Dominion when Toronto is in itself such
uu important mining centre.
The speaker went on to show bow
the mineral output of the Dominion
compared witli that of twenty years
ago. In 1880 the total mineral exports only amounted to $22,221,000. In
1-11)0, which is tlio last year for which
official reports havo been made out,
the amount was $68,574,000, while for
1906 it may be safely estimated as
exceeding  the  seventy  million mark.
The country was generally regarded'
as an agricultural one, our mineral
resources having less attention given
to them than they deserved. The
speaker pointed out that this view
was to a great extent erroneous, as
the mineral output of the Dominion
had now reached two-thirds of the
amount of the agricultural exports'
of Canada. j
Prof. Adams then asked this question, "Will this increase continue, or:
will it decrease?" In answering his
own question the professor argued
from geological data that the growth
not only would in all human prob-,
ability increase, but it was quite)
within the bounds of possibility that,
still greater riches might be discov-'
ered, the existence of which we are
at present ignorant of. The remainder of the address consisted of a'
careful analysis of the products fromi
their various districts of the coal,'
gold, nickel and copper, iron and sil-;
ver in the Dominion, and pointed out!
that so far as one could judge byi
peology these products were not likely'

Mysteries of Planting.
Tbe devices adopted by nature for
securing the planting and distribution
of seeds are very interesting. Some
seeds have wings, so that they may be
carried away as far aa possible In falling from the parent plant Others, like
those of the milkweed and dandelion,
may be said to be provided with balloons, Inasmuch as they are made so
light by feathery appendages that they
are readily drawn up to great heights
by warm currents of air. Astronomers
used to mistake tbe floating seeds of
tbe milkweed for meteors until a noted
star gazer set his telescope at a near
focus and wns thus enabled to examine
the floating vegetable germs that passed across tho field of view. Certain
burs are seed vessels that are provided with tiny hooks in order that tbey
may catch in the fur of animals and
be carried afar.

WILL KISSING
BE PROHIBITED
The Osculatory Process Denounced
by  Scientists as   Extremely
Dangerous—How the Danger Can be Removed.
A keen discussion is being carried

by Dr. Somers, Health Officer of Atlantic City, and Dr. Nalpasse, of the
Medical Faculty of Paris '.rh_:>j A*rge
the kiss with spreading grippe, scarlet
fever, measles, mumps, whooping
cough, typhoid fever, diphtheria, erysipelas, meningitis, tuberculosis, and
many infectious skin diseases. They
suggest legislation on the subject, and
the posting of notices in railway stations, street cars and other publio
places, but they say it would be useless to post them on verandahs, in
cosy corners, porches, shady nooks,
or moonlit lawns. They also propose
compulsory legislation for methods of
disinfection of the mouth and purify-
' ing the breath, especially with a view
j to the protection of the innocent babies
i who are particularly subject to infection. The greatest and most effective
purifier and germ destroyer known to
medical science for the mouth, throat
and breath, as well as for the blood,
stomach and lungs, is Psychine, that
triumph of the medical world that is

The B. C. E. Ry. Co. are having
the track rapidly laid on Ninth Ave.
E., and consequently many people
are investing in lots and homes in
East Mt. Pleasant. The work has
progressed rapidly during the week,
having been laid as far as Prince
Edward St.
Mrs. H. A. Gibbs has bought the
business lately conducted by Mrs,
W. W. Merkley at Westminster Ave.
Mrs. Gibbs will continue at the
same stand and carries a first class
stock of dry goods and millinery.
Mrs. Marshal remains head milliner,
and the cut in prices in this department is attracting the ladies of Mt.
Pleasant, .South Vancouver and Fair-
view, as well as down town. Mrs.
Gibbs has had the building enlarged
and added new seasonable stock.
Read her ad ln this paper.
The city has received a quit claim
deed from Mr. John Dunnan for the
northerly 52 feet of lot 31, subdivision of block 2, sub-divisioih of
district lot 200A, and all the tidal
lands occupied by the said Dunnan.
The property may be more particularly described as the proposed new
market site. Mr. Dunnan was handed $1,500 for the property and $150
for another consideration. The city
takes over al! his shipbuilding apparatus on the land, but it is under-
Stood that he may remove them if
he sees fit. This matter has been
long standing and would have been
settled long ago but for the multitude of bad.advisors who clustered
nround Mr. Duriiiiin. These people
reported when Mr. Dunnan agreed
'1 bave the matter arbitrated that
he had signed something he did not
know anything about. As a matter
of fact the arbitration agreement
was read over to Mr. Dunnan in the
presence of witnesses Ave times.
The work on the market will now
proceed apace.

confident that the better tha composition
of these medicines Is known tiie more
will tlioir great curative merits be recognized. Being wholly made of thn active
medicinal principles extracted from 11a-

free from tho objection of doing harm
by creating an appetite for either alcoholic bevei'Nges or lml.lt - forming

Dr. Pierco, and you will find that his

bric-a-brac, pennants and cosy corners. The lawn and flowers are kept
in excellent shape. There is a hi e

"Are you doing your share to help

the National Child Labor Committee in ils department ofileially published in the July Womau's Home
Companion, "If you could look for
a moment into the great industries
where children are employed at the
sacrifice of education and virtue,
and by their work doomed to destroy their future hope of health,
.manhood and womanhood, your
heart would go out to them and
you would hasten to the aid of those

Irrigation Convention.
The first Irrigation convention
covering tbe provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia,
will open in the City of Calgary,
Alberta, on the 17tb day oi July,
1907.
It ls gradually dawning on the
minds of thinking people that the
most significant development in agriculture that estern Canada has yet
witnessed is the movement to utilize the great mountain streams in
aiding the farmer largely to eliminate the element of uncertainty from
his operations. Irrigation enterprises, private and corporate, now completed and actually under way in
Western Canada, comprise an area
eeiual to one-quarter of the total
irrigated area of the whole of the
Bulled States, and the development
ls as yet ir. Its'Infancy, Our mountain ranges crntaln natural reservoirs   e    y   av aitlng    the   iluishl_.0
touches of skill and labor ' to save
water sufficient to irrigate vast
areas, ln addition to those that are
now or can be provided for by our
normal water Bupply.
Efforts will be made to induce a
number of gentlemen, specialists on
the question of Irrigation, to address the convention. Special railroad rates will be given. Mr. C. W.
Paterson, of Calgary, ls chairman of
the committee on arrangements.

The first and principal object of a very great denl of advertising

known. Customers niu.t come with some idea of the goods they

ture. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
cured thousands. They cured Mr.
Horace Plante, o£ Sorel, Que., of a
most aggravated case of rheumatism.
I walked as if my boots were filled with
pebbles. The pains, starting in my
feet, spread to all parts of the body;
my back and joints became affected.
For upwards of five years I suffered
.the greatest agony. Often I was confined to bed, hardly able io move. Nothing seemed to help me. I despaired of ever being well again. By good
chance Dr. Williams' Pink Pills were
brought to my attention and I decided
to try them. I got six boxes—before
they were gone I felt a great improvement. I contlinued the treatment and
my health gradually, came back till
now I do not feel the least pain—I am
totally cured. It Was a surprise to my
friends to see me on the street again
well and strong after five years of torture. They wanted to know what
brought about the change. I told
them Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for I
took no other medicline once I began
their use. Rheumatic sufferers give
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair trial;
they will surely do for you what they
did for me"
It is in the blood — poor blood —
that such troubles as rheumatism,
Indigestion, dizziness, heart palpitation, anaemia, weakness and a host
of other diseases find their root. It

HARDY FERNS.
About Forty Speoiss Are Suited to Outdoor Culture.
Among the hardy ferns are varieties
greatly differing in size and form, from
a hairlike creeping stem bearing a few
simple mosslike leaves to the vigorous growing plants with large leaves,
attaining a height of two or three feet.
Kerns are interesting and extremely
beautiful, especially when grown ns
specimen plants or in combination
with other plcnts. The varying conditions ln which the different species succeed are remarkable. Many of them
require a warm temperature, while
others do well In cool and shady places.
Of the 4,000 or more species of ferns
not more than about forty species are
suited to outdoor culture in ordinary
soils and situations. These species can
be planted In beds, borders or rockeries or in the foreground of shrubbery.
is most of them require a somewhat
shady place, they are especially useful
for filling In places where grass and
other light loving plants cannot grow.
Perfect drainage ls required. The soil
should have leaf mold in It, or decayed
peat or well decayed sod will answer.
Hardy ferns are best planted In the
spring, but they cau be planted in the
summer If the fronds or leaves are cur
back, making lt easier for the plants te
establish themselves before the wlntei
sets In. From his florist the amateu-
gardener can obtain cuttings of vnrie
ties most suitable for the soil and ell
mate tn his vicinity. In the winter tlr
ferns should be given protection, wit'
a covering of leaves, hay or straw.

badly afflicted with heart trouble, nervousness and cramps in the limbs, also ..vitching of the muscles, and nervous headaches. I became weak, debilitated and emaciated. My condition was distressing and I was made
worse tlirough worry and loss of

"I tried a hundred remedies in

Ghosts  Explained.
Telepathy, ghosts, and other oceuK
phenomena were explained ou a natural basis by Dr. Bernard Hollander
at the London Lyeeum Club recently.
It is by brain energy, whether electrical or not we do not know, said
the lecturer, that men acquire influence over others. That such energy
exists has been proved by experiment-!
on hypnotized persons, who in a per-
feertly darkened room can see a glow
at the finger-points of the hypnotizer;
and metallic objects nibbed by the
latter acquire a luminosity strong
enough to make their surroundings
visible.
Supposing a person to be the victim
of foul play, his mind-energy will be
exerted to the utmost, and is projected with such a force that it will cling
to the room or plafee In which he lost
hia life. If, then, some person oi a
sensitive nature, and not pro-occupied, pass through that room, his
brain may receive such a stimulus as
to produce some more or less defined
image, wliich will appear real to him,
and the vision of a "ghost" will be
the result.
The same theory, said Dr. Hollander, makes it possible that sensitive
subjects when in the hypnotic state,
and holding an object belonging to
the dead or tlie living, or being in a
room once inhabited by them, may
have visions of and be able to describe them.
The Surname.
The term "surname" ls supposed by
some to be derived from the French
surnom, meaning "over name," because a person's family name was formerly written above Instead of after

taking as much Interest In the way you
handle it as In the fact that the room
Is gradually getting clean. Stand with
your shoulders well back, bending from
the hips, lf you find lt necessary to
lean forward, Instead of stooping forward as though from the shoulders.
Train yourself to sweep with the
broom at the left side as well as at the
right, developing the sides evenly.
As to rowing, plain, humdrum washing may be made to yield some of the
same benefits if you make a point of
rubbing hard up, as well as. or. Instead
of, down the board. There is not the pull
upon the upper arm muscles thai rowing
gives unless you do this, and the
harder you pull against tbe board the
more nearly you come to the movement and the benefit of rowing.
Even the washing of the llttle pieces

so many women prefer to do up

tender mercies of a washer woman-
may be looked to as exercise producers.
Of course, there Is no discounting
the value which the keen zeBt of a
game or of athletics adds to the actual physical development. And the
clean, pure air In which rowing and
paddling arc usually taken Is another great factor which Is often lacking In doing housework.

' 0NSEN8E," says some one;

aneans of a measuring tape than by
fins of two pieces of the garment. For
lance, suppose the hookB which sup-
; your skirt In the back are always
and one-fourth Inches apart, and
I eyes on your skirts are always the
se, any skirt can fit any waist, and
^need never have either one to meas-
. the other by. One and one-fourth
pes, by the way, Is the regular
rsmnker's measurement for the hooks
and eyes which hold skirt and waist together.
How much easier, too, when making
buttonholes and putting on buttons to
decide just what distance apart you will
have them ln Inches, and then work lt
by means of a measure! The size of the
waistband, also, should be in Inches,
wuh so much allowed for turning in and
so much for lap under.etc. If the home-
sewer will keep a memorandum of all
measurements as to size of neck, waist,
wristband and other equally important
items which she is liable to need frequently, lt will save her much jumping
up and, also, the trouble of making
comparisons between things made and
those in process. She may even be able
to cut without a pattern a fairly accurate skirt, one that will do for common
wear, If she has the bottom and top
measurements of the widths, with the
length of each.
Loose Braids
WHEN braids begin to loosen
there is pretty sure to be
trouble ahead, The flrst fow
broken stitches should, of course, be
repaired at once, and the braid made
secure or the heel may catch and a
leg be broken by a fall But If a
few days after the flrst repair has
been made another place breaks out,
there ls but one thing to be done,
which is to rip the entire braid off
and put lt on afresh or replace lt entirely, beenuso the second breaking
away shows clearly that the thread
with which the braid has been sewed
on has grown rotten and cannot be depended upon.
The braid should  be  taken off, all
the threads should be picked out   and ,
the bottom of the skirt should be well
damncned and pressed.
CLOCKS AND THEIR
STRIKING
THE clock of our grandfather's time
came from England, and struck
every quarter of an hour.
Another ancient one plays old songs
and hymns instead of striking.
Still another contains not only a
cuckoo, but also a mocking bird, which
alternate in their cries.
A clock that was once very common
portrays stars, moon and sun, moving
slowly overhead as the clock strikes.
A heavy striking clock Is made for a
library, not for a bedroom.
Fit the clocks to the general appearance of the room. Often they are the
only misfit things in lt.
Those little gilt clocks, with the intermittent alarm, which rings at Intervals of a half-minute each for twenty
minutes, are just the thing for Miss
Lie-a-bed.
In France some of the new clocks
strike up to twenty-four, lnstead^if

; BABY'S SIXTH ]
/      MONTH
ihe Food Should Have the Most
Careful Attention
By Dr. Emelyn L. Coolidge
Copyright, 1905, by A. S.  Barnes & Co.
THE nightdress should now be ot
cotton and the skirt left off ai
night, lf it hus not already been
discarded, but the band and ex
thin shirt should be worn. Long white
cotton stockings, which may be pinned
to the napkin, Bhould be worn all sum-
mer, and not short socks.
In summer lt ls Important to keep the
baby's head as cool as possible; therefore, do not use a hot sunbonnet, which
shuts off all the air; muslin caps or
light pique hats afford enough simile. LC.
the baby has a carriage parasol.
lf one expects to take a long sea voyage or travel a long time on tbe cars
where fresh milk cannot be obtained, lt
will be well to accustom the child to
taking either condensed milk or one of
the best prepared foods which can ba
made with water before starting on thtt-
journey. Begin to do this two or three,
weeks before leaving home, and give
the baby one or two meals each day of.
this food. This Is a good plan to follow
sven If the baby Is nursed by his mother, for she may be ill or unable te>.
nurse her Infant for some reason, and it
Is best to be prepared for such an emergency.
Milk that has been rapidly cooled and
placed in sealed and sterilized glass jars,
will keep from four to six days, if kept
well packed ln Ice. Enough food for
twenty-four or even forty-eight hours
may be prepared at home, if lt ls sterilized and packed in a little traveling;
basket which contains a small compartment ln which to keep ice.
The formula sometimes used for tlie
slxth month is; Six ounces of top milk:
skimmed from the top of a quart bottle
of milk, ten ounces of milk poured off,
twenty-four ounces of barley or oatmeal
gruel, four teaBpoonfuli. of granulated
or seven of milk sugar, a pinch of bicarbonate of soda and a pinch or salt.
This should be pasteurized, cooled ln.
the usual manner, and given to tbe baby
every three hours up to 9 or 10 P. M.
From four to six ounces may be taken,
at each meal.
When an exceedingly hot day comes, It
is always wise to pour out one or even
two ounces from each bottle of the regular mixture and substitute boiled water
in its place.
If the baby is _.t all apt to vomit, It
will be best during the hot weather to,
use only four or five ounces of the top
milk Instead of six, and to make up tha
quantity with the gruel. Unless the
baby ls inclined to be constipated, barley gruel is better to use in summer-
than oatmeal, for it ls less heating.
Another good plan, when the baby has*
delicate digestive organs, is to make
one meal a day, all through the very-
hot weather, of mutton broth, made in
the following manner: One pound of the
neck of mutton cut up, one pint of coldt
water and a pinch of salt, Cook very
slowly for three or four hours until you
have half a. pint, adding a little water,,
lf necessary, from time to time, as It
boils away; then strain through muslin,
and. when ccld, remove every particle
of fat. This broth may be added to an,
equal quantity of barley water and fed
to the baby lukewarm through a nursing bottle.
•lII these simple measures help to ward
u_f the dreaded "summer complaint,"
and give the digestive organs less work
to do during hot weather and while the
teeth are being cut.

JId not whistle,  he did  not smoko, although it was a seat whero smoking was .
allowed, and there was not a sign of a
toothpick about him.
And then—he drew forth a pearl-handled penknife, and began to manicure •
his nails! More and mere absorbed ha-
grew, quite oblivious of the interest of
the girl opposite. And as he diligently
pared and scraped, his lips formed in a
pucker, and ho began to whistle. Little by little the marks of the gentleman
disappeared, and those of the boor Increased. A sudden motion tipped hia
hat back on his forehead, and as ha
drew out his handkerchief to polish the-
newly manicured nails the foreordained toothpick came out with it, ond waa.
promptly inserted In his mouth.
The girl opposite, who was an ardent
type-hunter, took ont the little notebook she always carried, and wrote
therein: "Dr. Jeykll becomes Mr. Hyde
through the agency ot a nall-flle!"
Terrifying Wallpaper
JUST as the guests were sitting down
to dinner a child's scream pierced
tho air. The hostess hastily excused herself and left the room. A few
moments later sho returned.
"1 can't think what is the matter with
Bobbie," she said, aa she reseated herself. "Ever since he has had his bedroom repapered he wakes up about this
time ln a dreadful fright and screams
until I come. Then he tells me that he
sees things coming out of the walls- -
tonight It was monkeys, last night it
was spiders."
"Do you leave a light In his room?"
asked the doctor.
"Oh! yes, Indeed; he couldn't sleep,
without lt."
"Then I think I know what alls hlnn.
What sort Is this new wallpaperT"
"It's a fancy flower design in red and
whjte—very pretty, Fred and I thought."
"Doubtless It was very pretty to you,,
but to an imaginative child lying there
ln the dusk those figured wallpapers are
perfect torture. I should advise you to
repaper the room in jome plain op
striped paper.''
"It Isn't only children that art cop.
tured by such wall papers, either," remarked the young girl next to the doctor. "When my aunt was sick she said
the wallpaper drovo her nearly crazv.
She would try to make faces out ot it.
and then they would come of their own
accord, until- n|j the walls were full of
them."
"Well, all this Is news to me," said
Bobble's mother, "and Bobble's wallpaper will certainly be changed - THE ADVOCATE, VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

The "Mark Twain" Top Notch:
Dut probably the most difficult top
notch or them all lo win will be
that of Mr. S. L. Clemens. Such acts
as "owning up" on occasions when
it is noeessary for honor aud when
It requires courage to do so; standing by a friend when ol,hers aro
making fun of him or false stato-
uients concerning him. Standing up
for the right even if you stand alon?
—and bravely enduring pnin and
oven disgrace without whining or
complaint when It is necessary for
the cause of right.
Perhaps the greatest test of moral
heroism is championing an unpopular cause or person when either Is
unjustly treated. An act such as
this sort will test the nerve of the
brave man, and the boy who does
it wins the Mark Twain Top Notch.
