Olive s Courtship
Author of "A Cruel Revenge," "A Forbidden Marriage," "A Beautiful Coquette," "The
Heiress of Cameron Hall."
It was rather a new experience to
Neva to find herself one of the many
young girls stitching away, for a few
paltry shillings per day, in one of
the largest dress emporiums of the
great metropolis. She had secured
lodgings with her only friend.
At the end of the third day an
event happened which changed the
whole course of her  life.
A beautiful mauve-gray traveling
dress had been brought up from tho
work-room, and the forewomnn had
handed it to Neva for a few extra
stitches here and there which appeared to have been overlooked.
"The young lady who is to wear
this ia very particular," she remarked; "and as Miss Olive Knecland is a good customer, we are anxious to please her."
Olive Kneelnnd—how strangely
sweet the name sounded to Neva! It
puzzled her, too, for it almost seemed to her as though she had heard it
before, somewhere. And as her lingers Hew deftly over the fine, soft
gray frills, she fell to wondering what
this Miss Kneeland, who was so soon
to ho a happy bride, was like.
Wus she tall, slight, ami dark, or
wns she fair? Would her wedded life
be sunshine or would it be stormy
and unhappy?
While she was wondering, there was
a flutter in the work-room. The forewoman came to her, hurriedly exclaiming, "Here is Miss Kneeland
now. You must give me the traveling-dress at once."
Neva involuntarily dropped her
work, and glanced up. Miss Kneoland was standing but a few feet dis-
tnnt, regarding her with interested
eyes, probably because Neva was
busy with her trnveling-dress.
"How beautiful she is, but how-
proud and cold looking!" thought
Neva,  ns she    beheld the    tall, slim,
altogether. And she loved him so!
Ah. pitying God! in spite of all his
neglect, sue loved him still.
"Come rwny from the window,
miss, and attend to your work," the
forewomnn cnlled out sharply to
Neva. But the girl did not hear—her
thoughts had followed her heart—
they were with the two whirling
down the avenue.
"He is going to marry Miss Kneeland!" Tho words rang through her
brain like a funeral knell. Sho clutched her hands tightly over her heart.
How could he marry the beautiful
Miss Kneeland, when he was already
wedded to her? A man could bave
but one wife.
The forewoman crossed over to the
window and shook the girl angrily by
the shoulder, exclaiming: "Why are
you not at your work? You are not
paid to loiter here, and we so busy.
You must attend to your business if
you want us to keep you here."
Neva turned slowly toward her.
She did not even comprehend whut
she was saying, her brain was so
confused. When the woman caught,
sight of tho death-white face she
started back with a little cry.
"Are you ill, miss?" she asked, anxiously.
"111!" Neva laughed aloud, the
most horrible and yet the most pitiful lnugh that ever fell from mortal
lips. "I am so ill thnt I wish death
would come to mo and set me free
from this awful pain!" she moaned,
clutching her hands stiH closer over
her throbbing heart.
The woman topk the work from
her hands.
"You are not able to finish Miss
Kneeland's traveling-dress," she said, i
"I will give it to some one else to
do, as it must be finished immediately. She ia to be married to-night, or
to-morrow; I have forgotten Just
what the date is. She is a vory happy girl," went on the forewoman,
volubly and thoughtlessly, "for he is
noDiu race; you w-iiid noS-want lc

future, make life a burden for hei.
You arc beautiful as a dream; you
are rich. 1 can not wonder that an;v
ono should love you; but, ah, me! ah,
me! I wish to Heaven you haa never
been born!" And here Neva gave
way to hysterical weeping.
"My good girl," exclaimed Miss
Kneeland, greatly shocked nnd Bewildered, "I have not the leust idea
what you ure trying to get nt. lie
so kind ns to tell me what you want
of me. I um very, very busy today, nnd can Illy spare ihe time thut
I am giving vou now."
"Yes, I will tell jou," moaned
Nova, wringing her hands, "and let
my every word be a prayer to you.
They toll me thnt yoll—you—love
Hoger Glendenning, dear lady; but,
oh! you must not love him—you must
not marry him—lor he is ail I have
in the world! If you take him from
me I shall die! nnd—and my spirit
would haunt you so, night and day,
that you would never find a moment's
peace or happiness with him."

Have You  Insured Your Skin?
A North-West farmer died recently
from blood poisoning following the
prick of a rusty nail. A tin tack on
which he trod, penetrated a Chicago
boy's toe, and he died later from
lock-jaw. Both these deaths could
have been averted if a box of Zuin-
Buk had been handy. The air is full
of poisonous germs und microbes-
wbicli settle on wounds and—and
what? lf left to go their own way
thoy set up festering, suppuration and
frequently blood poison. If Zam-Buk
i.s applied these harmful genus are
killed and the wound is healed.
One of the greatest living chemists
has proved that Zam-Buk has moro
power to kill harmful microbes in
wounds than crude carbolic acid, and
does it painlessly. A little Zam-Buk
appled to n cut, a sore, a burn or a
bruise which breaks the skin, prevents the wound from taking the
wrong  turn,  and  speedily heals it.
Mrs. Bright, of Johnstone, N. B.,
snys: "I got my finger poisoned by
the prick from n needle, and as it got
very bad I applied some old fashioned
remedies. It continued to get worse,
and I then tried Zam-Buk. This both
cleaned the wound and healed it and
soon all trace of the injury was gone."
In cases of cuts, burns, bruises nnd
other injuries Zam-Buk is the best
"insurance." It is equally good for
eczema, chronic ulceration, ringworm,
scaling sores, abscesses, inflamed
patches, running sores, bad log, old
wounds, etc. Also for chapped hands.
Of all druggists at fifty cents a box,

the sunlight, its bright rays glinting
her brown hair and changing it into
gold. But her eyes attracted Neva
most; they were so large, so blue, so
wonderfully expressive.
Sho spoke a few words to the forewoman, then turned with a very
graceful bow nnd left the room.
Olive Knecland! Where hnd Neva
heard that nnme before? i'or an
hour or more she pondered over it,
then suddenly it came to her iust
where, 'i'he work she was doing fell
from her hands, and a great sobbing
cry broke from her lips. Great Heaven! she remembered! She hud henrd
that name upon llie lips of the handsome young husband who had wedded,   then deserted   her!
When she had asked him tho question if he hud ever loved any one
before he loved her, he had ■ answered:
"Yes, I did love a young girl before I met you, but sho was so cold
and proud that she froze my love."
Whim she had nsked her name he
had hesitated en instant, then answered,   slowly,   "Olive Knecland."
The shock was so great it almost
killed Neva. At thnt moment one of
the girls, who wns stnnding nt the
window, called suddenly to her companions.
"Miss Kneelnnd 'is just nbout to
enter her 'carriage," she said. "Her
betrothed is with hor. Come, girls,
and see what a handsomo fellov.' he
is. Why, I positively envy her, he is
so devoted to her. Yes, I predict for
Miss Kneelnnd a happy life when she
is Mr. Roger,Glendennlng's wife. Ho
lalrly Idolizes her. Ah, me! how
sweet it is to be loved! Come, girls,
and see ilhctn drive off."
All tho girls rushed to the window.
Neva never knew how she reached It.
It seemed to her that the room was
whirling around her, and the voices
of her voinpuniiiiis sounded fnr off,
like the voices one hears in dreams.
She pressed her white face close to
tho window-pane and looked down.
Ah! surely her ears had not deceived
hef. They had uttered tho nnme
Roger Glendenning. Was she mad or
dreaming? Ah, angels in heaven, bo
pitiful! It was he! It was a wonder she did not fall dead then and
The gentlcmnn In the victoria,
glancing casually up, saw the group
of girls looking eagerly down nt his
lady-love, nnd he smiled amusedly,

Boms curls with n courteous bo v,
Every girl save Neva drew instantly buck in tho greatest confusion,
She seemed as though turned to
stone, her fnce glued to the Window-
pane, nnd her eyes riveted on the eyes
glancing up lniighiiigly Into her own.
It was no drenin, no illusion. Of
nil tho fuccs the world hold, she
would know thnt one. He hnd parted from her with Caresses and on-
denring words, nnd once out of
sight, she was out of mind. He hnd
simply forgotten her, or regretted
that hu.si_\ marriage, nnd igmucil her
marries for love, the world is heaven
to them."
1 Whiter and whiter grew Neva's
face. She never heard the last word,
for while it was on tho woman's
lips her hands had dropped listlessly
to her side, her hend drooped on
her chest, she swayed to and fro for
an instant, then, without a moan or
a cry, fell senseless at the woman's
When her eyes unclosed, nnd consciousness began to reassert itself,
she found herself on the bnck porch
of the emporium, where they had carried her. A little girl stood by her
sido, alternately funning her nml
holding a glass of ice-water to her
parched lips. In an instant the events
through which she hnd just passed
recurred to her, and the little gill
standing beside her grew frightened
to see her bury her face in her hands
and weep violently.
"I think I will leave you now thut
you havo come to," said the girl,
"for I must make haste to carry Miss
Kneeland's dress to her."
In an instant a thought occurred to
Neva. In a flash she had clasped tho
girl's hands, and the girl started
back, they wero so burning hot.
"Let me go with you," she whispered, hoarsely. "I must soo Miss
"I don't think tho forewoman
would object to your going, for
there's two packages, and I should

ths girl. "Some ono suggested thut

In crossing the park, but they
thought you were too weak, I'll go

In less timo than It takes to toll
It tho girl reappeared, and thoy
started on whut was to Neva the
most important errand of her lifo.
A  servant  admitted    them,   taking
the bundles   from  them,     remarking j
that it was impossible for Miss Kneelnnd to see them just then.
"You can return. I will stay hero
ond rest a little," said Neva to her
companion; and tho littlo girl returned nlone to tho establishment.
Tho door had no sooner closed after her than Neva turned beseechingly to tho servant, crying out that
she must sec Miss Kneoland, ns her
errand was a matter of lifo or
This brought Olive down at once.
She looked at the girl In wonder, re-
ciignizing her ns the one In the establishment thnt was sewing on her
trnvollng-dross thnt nfternoon.
"Von wished to see me?" she Interrogated, kindly. "Now thnt I am
hero, till me whut I cun do for you,

Her gentle words nnd pleasunt manner touched Neva to the heart. Wilh
a great cry what fairly shocked Miss
Kneoland, she flung herself on her

Upon our arrival I noticed one of tbe

which was very attractive. Among
tho passengers was a schoolteacher of
Manila returning frcm his vacation, a
big giant of a fellow. His eye was attracted by tbe Jap's offerings, and he
spied a big seal ring, a very swell looking affair.

A Curiosity In Figures.
The following remarkable contribution to the curiosities of figures consists of two series of numbers, of
which no description Is necessnry, as
they speak for themselves. Perhaps
there is no special profit In tbem, but
they are worth preserving nevertheless:

12 times 9 plus 2 equals 111.

drafts of the Royal Irish Constabulary
had descended on the spot, like blessed manna from the heavens for those
that hungered after peace. Certain
fiery speakers from the United Irish

for what it does to Erin, though Erin
ls not so green as Erin makes out. They
were especially to denounce the Royal
Irish Constabulary. But when those
uncompromising patriots arrived, the

received from Hon, R. G. Tatlow, Minister of Finance, a promise that it wa,s
the intention of the Government at the
next meeting of the Legislature to place
a substantial sum in the estimates ,for
opening np the lnnd recently sold by
tho Government at Point Grey.
Leto in December the Council, in a
communication addressed to Premier
MiBrlrjB, stated that it considered that
the (Joverumout should grant 10 per
cent, ot tho sale price of land in distriot
lots 2037 and 540 for the construction of
roads then.
It was pointed out (hat it was manifestly ttu lust that the old ratepayers
of the muuicipality who have beou pay-
.. ing for the past thirteen years should
have to devote their money to tlio open-
up of the roads in lands upon which no
taxes had over beeu paid.
About 103tj miles of roods aro required
iu 540, and about 9*^ miles iu 2027.
Tho grant asked fjr would allow of
an expenditure of $1660 for each mllo of
road to be built Besides this, several
bridges, each of which will cost about
13.000; will have have to bo built. Tlio
$1,660 per mile will not by tiny means
be tho entire cost of construction.

The last meeting of the Trustees was
held on Monday the 14th, present:
Chairman Hodgson, Trustees Wells,
Farr. Neilson and Secretary W. Ferris.
Teachers and janitors salaries and
other accounts wero passed. Reports
of various Committees wero read and
approved, and a report that arrangements had been made to open a new
school bnilding in District Lot 472
which the Provincial Government had
approved and had arranged to pay rent.
Reports from several teachers were
read and discussed, and also a report
from the Superintendent of Education
as to G. Enrle and Arthur S. Karr having passed examination from East Vancouver School and Ellen June 'Hamilton from South Vancouver School.
The Ch.iirmi-ii  presented  his report
for the year as follows: '• >•
To the Board of School Trustees.
Gentlemen: I have pleasure in handing you my report for the nine months
this Board has been in ofiice.
The Government saw fit in the early
part of 190(5 to amend the Public School
Act, and consolidated the townships of
Hastings, District Lot 801 and the
Municipality of South Vancouver iuto
what is known as the Municipal School
District of South Vancouver
The taking over of the schools from
the various Boards then in existence
entailed considerable work to get things
down to a satisfactory working basis,
but I am pleased to be able to report
that by the united efforts of the Board
things are now in a condition which,. I
think, >s [not only satisfactory to the
Educational Department but to the
residents of the District as well. -
The condition of the school buildings
and grounds throughout tbe Municipality necessitated considerable outlay for
repairs, etc., so that the estimates for
general expenditure were higher than
they otherwise would have been.
The amount asked from the Municipality Conncil wns $7,688 which required au assessment of 4 mills. Of this
amount $4,688 was for snpplemanting
teachers' salaries, repairs, janitors and
general running expenses. The balance, $3,000, was for estnwrdinnry expenses, to go towards purchasing site
aud creating bnildiug in the West
Vancouver District.
I wish to take this opportunity of
thanking the Reeve and Council for the
liberal manner in which they considered oar estimates.
The thanks uf this Board is nlso due
to our Member for Richmond the Hon
F. Carter-Cotton for his untiring efforts
in our behalf. Although we did not
receive tho consideration from tho
Government to which we thought we
were entitled, it wis largely through
the efforts of thu Hou. Gentlemen that
we received as much us we did
When we took office oa Ajril 14th,
there were five schools in the District.
Ou May 15th, we opened nnother oue itt
Lot 472., which I am pleased to say,
under the able guidance of- Miss Oope-
hmdj.is progressing satisfactorily.
I nm pleased to report that the new
West Vaujiouvor School is really fur occupation, although there U u little
work yot to bo done by the centriicturs.
During the year mar Board pweured
fcom the tKxse—mient two sites iu the
western soctUiu of onr Municipality for
school purpose. One un the Wilsou

Mrs. Thos. Shiels, Stoughton, Sask.,
Writes: "We hnve used nearly all of
Dr. Chase's Medicines in our family
with splendid results and send direct
to ypu for them because we live
twenty-two miles from a drug store.
"In Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
wo found a cure for constipation, biliousness and kidney disease.
"I used several boxes of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food for nervousness from
which I had been a great sufferer and
it built me up anil strengthened me
"Some years ngo I had an ulcer on
my ankle und thou_.li I tried ninny
treatments of one kind and another
could get nothing to ileal it until I
used Dr. Chase's Ointment, whicii i
have also found an excellent cure for
itching piles. We would scarcely
know how to get along without Dr.
Chnse's Medicines."
The confidence which people have
ia Dr. Chase's Medicines can only be
accounted for by the fact that they
never disappoint". For nearly half a
century they have been before the
public and had a record of cures unparalleled in the history of medicine.

Mooney's     «
Perfection Cream Sodas
Recipe Comes All the Way From Aua
tralia and Is Good.
As a recipe for the home-making ol
a cheap paint for out-door work, an
Australian paper gives the following:
"Take two bushels of fresh stone
lime, or good fresh slaked lime will
do, but the first is preferable. Put
the lime ln a water-tight barrel and
put ln enough water to thoroughly
slake it. Add twenty-five pounds ol
beef tallow and stir occasionally until
the tallow is thoroughly incorporated
with the lime. Less than this quantity can be mixed by observing tha
proper proportions of lime and tallow. For coloring matter earth colors must be used, such as yellow
ochre, Venetian red or burnt umber.
With either spruce or golden ochre you
can get a beautiful soft cream tint,
and by using more ochre a buff tint
Venetian red will give a creamy pink
which In some cases will look well
Burnt umber will give all the shades
of drab you want by adding more 01
less as you want lt light or dark. Mil
the coloring matter with water ln a
separate vessel, taking care that lt
does not go lumpy. This can be prevented by adding a little water at a
time and stir thoroughly until you get
lt about the consistency of cream.
From 50 to 75 cents worth of course
will be sufficient to make the mass a
nice light buff, hut as ochre varies In
strength the tint can be secured only
by testing as you mix. As the color
will always be darker In Its mixed
state than after It Is applied and dries
out, test a little first on a piece of
board until you get the depth of tint
wanted. A pretty combination on a
building ls a buff body, and for trimming add umber to the buff until you
get a contrasting shade of creamy
drab. The mixture will need thinning
with soft water until It works freely
under the brush. Be careful not to
thin too much. Apply with a whitewash
brush or flat paint brush.
"This Is a cheap and durable paint
and Is valuable for outbuildings where
a rough grade of lumber ls generally
used, which would require a lot of oil
paint. More especially ls it valuable
in palntng old and weather-beaten
buildings. The combination of lime and
tallow forms a waterproof and weather-
proof coating which fills the pores ol
the wood and arrests the action of the
weather upon the wood. To make a
good Job, cracks anrt holes in the siding
of buildings should be filled witn the
paint In Its paste form nnd if filled as
they are reaohed nnd Immediately
painted over before gelling dry, wlP
not show spots or streaks."

among which that of a certain monkey,
Colobus occidentals, Is perhaps the

alternate stripes of black and white,
so handsome that the skin ls much

William Hickling Prescott, who was
born at Salem, Mass., on the 4th of
May, 1T9G, was the son of a prosperous lawyer, entered Harvard college In
1811 and graduated in 1814. Early In
his college career he hnd his left eye
blinded by a piece of bread playfully
thrown at liim by a follow student, and
llie other eye soon became sympathetically affected. He traveled iu England, France and Italy aud then devoted himself to severe study, but lt
was not till the beginning of 1820 that
he found the work of his life within
the range of Spanish history. Fortunately his means wore ample, so that
he was able to procure the services of
assistants and to live amid conditions
of comfort. By constant habit he gained the power of carrying a great deal
iu his memory, and after he had revolved the whole of n chapter In his mind
he quickly transferred it to paper by
means of his stylus and an Ingenious
writing case especially constructed for
the blind, lie published his "History ot
Ferdinand and Isabella" in 1838, which
carried his name across the ocean to
the old world. This was followed by
his "History of the Conquest of Mexico" ln 1843, nnd of "Peru" in 1847.
These gave him a great reputation.

WHEN water is left to itself, does
it stand still?
What do you think about
that, boys and girls? Tou do
not feel sure, do you? Very well, let us
make some experiments and lind out.
Of course, if we Imprison some water—
for instance, fill a bottle full of it and
cork lt tight—it cannot move.
But give lt a chance and see what is
the result.
Take a soft brick, not a hard one, and
leave lt on end ln a dlBh containing water. After half an hour or so come back
and you will very likely notice that tho
water has begun to climb up tho brick.
An hour or so later make observations
again. You will find the water has
climbed perceptibly higher. And, of
courso, ln time lt will reach the top of
the brick (that is, If there was enough
water ln the dish to begin with).
Another experiment. Take a lamp
chimney, tie cheesecloth over the bottom
of lt and nil it with sand. Leave it in a
dish containing water, ln a very short
time, lf you return to look at It, you will
lind the water has started to rise
through the sand to the top of the
chimney. You will observe that lt rises
much faster through the .
loose, soft sand than lt does
through the solid, hard brick.
Now, can vou suggest two
Important principles which
those experiments go to |
prove? ,
One   Is   that  water,   If  left
alone,   does   not   stand   still,
but tends to rise and spread |
through    some    medium    i
The other is that the best "medium
Is soft and loose, rather than solid and
Now what Is important to apply these
principles to? This is April, you know.
Why, to plants, of course. Quite right.
Our plants should stand in loose, well
cultivated soil, so that when they are
watered the water will quickly mako its
own wny .town through the soil to the
bottom and then rise ngaln, thus thoroughly moistening the'soil.
DON'T fail to note
the difference between
"moll t" soil and
"wet" soil.
A wet soil has more
water  than  can  possibly    stick    to    the
grains   of   earth.    A
moist    soil    has    Just
enough water to reach
and    cling    to   every
grain of tarth. Plants
like   moist   soil,   but
not wet soil.
Maybe  some   boy   or   girl   smiles   to
think of water "sticking" to anything.
Ah, but It does!
See the boy who has Just bathed his
fuce and hands. What ls It sticking to
his skin that ho has to wipe oft with
his  towel?   Water.
Some one lets water drop slowly from
a filled fountain pen, drop by drop, on a
pebble. The wnter from the first drop
spreads over the top of Use pebble
and sticks to it. The snme happens
after the second nnd third drop, etc.,
till there is more water clinging to the
bottom of the pebble than the top.
When things reach this point, the
water begins, of course, to drip from
the pebble. But note how much had up
to this time stuck to the pebble!

The demand In bantams is for form
and color. So lf you are going to keep
bantams, boys and girls, start in with
the best you can get, if you can only
have two. Better two that are fine In
form and color than more than two
that have nothing to boast of!
Probably the quaintest variety of
bantams so far produced ls the Japanese bantam. Notice the extreme
shortness of his legs. If a flrst-class
specimen, indeed, he will not show
any leg at all when walking. This is
due to the profusion of his feathers.
The tall Is very much developed and
the feathers stand erect, as high as his
head or higher, often touching tho
back of his neck.
Many of you wish to know how to secure bantams and then how to take care

There are several varieties of bantams
from which you can make your choice.
The picture shows a pair of bantams of
the brown-breasted rod game variety.
You will notice that the male is considerably larger than the female.
For your purpose, you hnd better not

From the side, front and ground views

which the house should be furnished.
"Why have a house at all?" you may

chickens came originally from tropical
regions, and so, like hothouse flowers,
they cannot stand too much outdoor
weather. They thrive best where their
delicate combs and toes are not exposed
to frost.

use tar paper. First make a roof of
ordinary boards, then put on your tar
paper, tacking it down, as indicated ln
the drawing.
Of course, you understand that lt is
absolutely necessary to keep the bantam house perfectly clean. When you
undertake to keep chickens, you are going Into the housekeeping business; so
you must be as faithfui as a housekeeper in attending to your duties. My!
how ashamed you would be to havo
nothing to show your friends but untidy,   Insect-Infested   bantams,   aU be-
If you look at It from the end. It will
look like the capital letter T. Round
and smooth all the edges of the boards
with a plane or knife.
A good water fountain that cannot be
soiled by the birds can be made from a
Jug. Make a hole near the bottom of the
Jug by nicking off a piece of the surface
with the corner of a hatchet, and then
boring the hole with a sharpened nail.
When the jug Is filled with water, put
a stopper in the hole. The water will
remain above the hole in the jug, but
will not rise any further.
Perhaps some of you boys have other
good suggestions for water fountains.
Freedom from dampness and regular
feeding are two of the secrets of success ln bantam raising. For the flist
week or two of small chicks' lives feed
them hard-boiled eggs chopped fine
and mixed with bread crumbs or
crushed crackers. After that, some
patent meal and mixed grains.
If length and profusion of feathers
are desired, feed a liberal allowance
of cooked meat and senrps from the
table. This Is not good food for game
bantams, however, as they should not
have much feathering.
Don't forget fresh water dally, fresh
air, good, clean grit and plenty of
green food.
If you have any further questions to
ask, write to Polly Evans or to Mr.
William Hofacker, P. O. Box 158, Norwood, Pa., inclosing a stamped, self-
addressed envelope for the reply.
How the Boys Can Build a Good Boat
TN THESE pictures you haye
a good, simple plan for the
construction of a homemade boat. A boy of Hi recently made such a bout, and
il was u success.
With $*>, which he earned by
doing odd Jobs, he bought the
lumber, nails, paint, etc.; and
he used the tools that a boy Is
likely to find in his- father's
household kit.
He   flrst    built   the   frames
with square ends, as you seo
in the picture.   Thin hs built
the sides of two wide boards,
which were sawed with a gradual curve
from each side of the centre.   These he
nailed to the frame, and he very carefully fitted the end pieces.
After that, he turned the whole affair
over and fitted and nailed the bottom-
boards in place, putting on the edges,
etc., a thick cont of paint, ao as to make
the bottom watertight, nnd between the
edges of the boards ho laid lengths of
lampwicking, loosely twisted and smear-
ami  .i.ivATioii
ed with soft lead.
Then, when the planks were all thoroughly put on, he gave the entire boat,
inside and out, two coats of paint. After
this it was ready for the final touches-
seats, deck, gratings, etc.
The lumber he usod was boards % ot
an Inch thick, but for the deck only 'A
Inch boards were used. At each end
he made lockers to hold his spare flBh-
ing tackle, etc.
He made the gratings so that they
could easily be removed for cleaning or
The length was 10 feet, width at
centre 3 feet, depth amidships 2 feet,
depth at ends 1 foot.
And it cost him only about J5 ln
money. He did not figure out how
much his time and labor were worth.
Such a boat as this can be as good
as ono could wish, lf well constructed.
A Book Game
TIS is Jolly for a rainy evening,
and instructive, too. Also good
for a party.
Give everybody a sheet of paper and
a pencil and send them into tho library
or sitting room to guess the titles of
books or the names of authors by certain objects which you huve previously arranged to roprescnt them. The
objects should be numbered to correspond with the numbers on the sheets
of paper.
Give the players twenty minutes or
half an hour to completo their guesses.
A prize should be awarded the ono
who made the largest number of correct guesses.
Here are samples for you to use and

measure and around lt a tape measure.

"Essay on Man"—Picture of a man
and on lt a large cut-out "S," also an

Some Amusing Epitaphs
(Are there any amusing or curious epitaphs on old hi'fidslones in your nolKh-
borlng cemeteries, boys and girls? Polly Evans would bo glad to hour what
they nro. if you will kindly wrtle to her.)
THIS Inscription Is to be found on a
tombstone in an English churchyard, The man to whose memory
It was raised wns. as the writing explains, fond of eating:
"Here lie iho bones
Of Joseph Jones,
Who ale whilst he was able;
But once o'erfed
He dropped down dead
And fell bonouth the table.
Whon from has tomb
To meet his doom
He rises amidst sinners,
Since he muBt dwell
In heaven or -—,
Take him—which gives best dinners."
A stone In nn English churchvard
chows this plaintive epitaph. The trade
uf the deceased while he wns alive and
the manner of his death are botn explained In the auaint rhyme:
"Weep, stranger, for n fnther spiued
From a stUKOi'tiach and thereby killed;
His name was John Sykes, a maker of
Slnin with  three other outside passengers."
Enoch Wood, a rustic celebrity, who
was hienlly famous as n cricketer, diod
In 1852, and this wus raised to his memory:
"Trend   gently,   stranger,   'neath   this
The bones of Enoch Wood nre laid,
Hard by the village cricket ground
Wheroon In life he often played.
How oft In vain the bowlers sought
To bring an end to Enoch's slat!
How oft his curly ones have brought
To other batsmon dire dismay!
Alns! no moro he'll make a score,
For. faced by that grim bowler, Gout,
He chanced to get his Leg bofore.
And Death, the umpire, gave him 'Out,'
His game of life is plnyed nnd won,
An honest mnn—brave, gentle, sago.
He'll   hear   the   Victor's   meed,    'Well
Who God works out his averoai. "
Can You TellP
Can you tell Polly Evnns If thero I

A Waifs Success       1
POLLY   EVANS   reprints   today   am
editorial which  recently appeared
In  the  Philadelphia  Press.    It  la
one that every boy (and girl, as well)
should read.   Under the head, "A Waif-
Success,"  the editorial says:
In the resignation of John Green.
Brady us Governor of Aluska there retires from official life a man whose success should be an Inspiration to every-
Amerlcan boy, for it is only in this lun_
of Immeasurable possibilities that sucU
a career Is possible. In the life record,
of Governor Brady there Is Inscribed-
more of romance, persistence, pat'euco
and battling ugalnst obstacles than cube found between the loaves of half tho
modern fiction that has mado fame nnd
fortune for Its authors.
John Green Brady was a waif of New
York, a product of the Five Points ot
fifty yours ugo. Left by the death, ut
both parents to shift for himself, ho became a purt of the humun flotsum und
jelsum of the city streets that waa
gathered In by the life lines of the
Children's Aid Society. Sent West with
scores of others at the age of Si be-
found _ home and friends among
Then followed years of work, of growing ambition, of desire to help those
who, like himself, hud boen loft ua
wiecks on life's sea. Ho made his way
through Yale and through Union Theological Seminary, and then went So__S\.
where, In Texas, he undertook lo establish a colony for the slum boys of New-
York. It failed through lack of funds.
nnd Brady became n missionary to.
Alaska. His conscientious work, clear
Ideas and devotion to duty so impressed
President McKinley that in 1897 ho appointed him Governor of Alaska, n position which he has continuously filled
since then until his resignation a few
weeks ngo.
All honor to John Green Brady! Whut
he has done other boys with greater
advantngos can do. There is no rung
In tlie ladder of success too high for
those who. like Governor Brady, begutt
at the bottom. The fnct thai he was a,
slum hoy Bl'imulated rather thnn repressed his ambitions. Ho hnd In him
the stuff nr which the typical American
is mado. His success hns demonstrated
it, nnd the country would bo bettor oK
lf thero wero more of his kind.
