Olive's Courtship
BY LAURA JEAN LIBBEY
Author of "A Cryel Revenge," "A Forbidden Marriage," "A'Beautiful Coquette," "The
Heiress of Cameron Hall" 2
(Continued.)
The six weeks which was the limit
ef .Jack Murray's vacation sped all
too quickly, antl he marie up his
mind to extend it two weeks longer.
■Surely the linn by whom he was employed could not he so very apgry
with hiin for taking it upon himself
to do this, he was so valuable to
them. Antl when the time, came to
set his face homeward, even then he
would fain have tarried; hut funds
had run low nnd he was obliged to
get back to business again. Roger
Glendenning accompanied him as far
as Baltimore, and there they parted,
it being Roger's intention to remain
there a week to settle his aflairs.
And then he might go to South
America—Africa: it mattered littlo
enough to him where fate drifted him
on  the turbulent waters of life.
On the second day after his friend's
departure, quite mechanically he
bought one of the New York papers,
as was his custom in other days. His
exile amid the swamps of Louisiana,
where he had not seen one human
race, save that of his friend, for two
long antl weary months, had seemed
to him like seven years, and he felt
a longing eagerness to know what
was going on in the world from
which he was banished for long
years, perhaps forever. With wistful
eyes he devoured page after page. On
the last page was an item which
caught and held his attention. It
was an nccount of the recent illness
of Judge Kneeland. narrating that a
serious conllagration had swept away
all his property. In a few short
hours he hatl been reduced from a
wealthy man to a poor one, for there
hatl not been one dollar's worth of
insurance upon any of the property.
The shock had brought on paralysis,
and he had been forced to retire
from the bench and live on a pension.
Roger Glendenning's heart gave a
great throb. Ah! how his heart
throbbed with , pity for Olive in that
dark hour! If he had had a fortune,
how gladly woultl he have given her
every dollar of it; ay, his very life's
blood, every drop of it. Then, with
this train of thoughts quite another
came to him which alarmed and worried him. With this terrible change
in her fortune, how long would his
brother Oscar love hei"? His betrothed would be irksome to him, and he
would snap the slight chain of an
engagement asunder as ruthlessly as
he would brush aside a cobweb from
his path. Ah! if he but dared go to
New York in disguise and see Oscar, and plead with him, if he found
him weakening in his vows, to keep
his pledge and faith with her! He
could readily believe that her beauty
had fascinated him. but had she possessed that alone, he quite believed
his brother would have passed her
by  carelessly  enough.
Roger was just about to close the
paper when another little item concerning the judge came under his eye,
and that was to the eftcct that
Judge Kneeland had entered his
daughter's horse, Judge Morrow, for
the great handicap race which was
to come ofl the following day, and
all of the old judge's hopes of retrieving his fallen fortunes lay in the
issue.
Roger Glendenning bowed his head
on his hands, and great tears gath-
. cred in his eyes. Little Judge Mor-
* row, the colt that Olive fairly idolized, lay as a Sacrifice on the aitar
of her father's misfortune I He realized how it must have wrung Olive's
heart to consent to this, for sinco
the hour of his birth almost she had
fed him lumps of sugar nntl petted
him with her own fair hands, Once
her father had been Offered quite a
sum for him, but he hatl remarked,
with a wnilc, "Mlincy could not buy
that colt. He is mv daughter's property, and she is almost as fond of
him as she is of me, I often think."
Antl littlo Judge Morrow was to run
in the great rate! Ah! how ardently
he hoped that the gallant little colt
would win a fortune for Olive!
He resolvetl suddenly that he must
go to New York in time.to get over
to Brooklyn to see that race. Jt wns
a daring thing to do, to walk blindly into the pit yawning to receive
him. But as his heart and soul were
there, his body might as well be also, he argued, hop'_lessl.y, providing
he could procure a disguise which
would completely conceal his identity.
Before nightfall this was accomplished, and with a strange feeling
ol light-heartedness which he wfts
wholly Unable to account for, Roger
Glendenning boarded the midnight
express. He took a sleeper, and it
cost him nearly all the money his
friend had loaned him. But his
thoughts were so turbulent he could
not closo his eyes all the long night
through.
It was early morning when he
reached New York, and he could
not have restrained the impulse to
walk past the hotel where he had
read that the judgo nnd his daughter were stopping temporarily had
his life depended upon it. Perhnps he
might catch a glimpse of her at one
of the windows. It was only a faint
hope, but ho caught at it as a drowning man catches at a straw.
Up antl down the length of the
Stroot he paced, backward and forward past the hotel, until he grew
fearful lest he was attracting too
much attention. At length he grew
desperate, and ventured within the
hotel ofiice antl called for breakfast.
A few moments later he was seated
in the dining-room. How he hoped
and prayed that Olive would enter
the room! He felt that if he could
feast his eyes on her face once more
he would be willing, nay, glad to
wander oft* somewhere .and die. His
very soul yearned for just one glance,
with a longing that could not be appeased.
He lingered at the table as long as
he could find nny possible excuse for
doing so. Then, when it was no longer wise to remain, arose slowly and
quitted the room, wondering vaguely
if sbe had already breakfasted, or if
it had been served in her apartments.
He wished he dared make inquiry of
one of the waiters who was passing
through  the corridor.
While he was Jiondcring over this,
Olive herself came slowly down the
wide hall, her long gown trailing after her with a soft, low rustle. She
passed hiin by so closely that the
dark-brown dress she wore brushed
his hand. She did not raise her eyes
to his face, or she would have been
startled at the burning, despairing
eyes looking with pitiful intensity into her own. She vanished at the end
of the cool, dim, wide hall, and the
light and sunshine seemed to go
with her, leaving the world cold,
gray, and desolate. He wished he
could die then and there, he was so
bitterly unhappy.
He was among the first waiting to
be admitted when the gates of the
race track were thrown open. Quite
mechanically he walked down the
track to the stables, with wistful
eyes strained to catch one glimpse of
Judge Morrow, the gallant little animal that was to win or lose a fortune for Olive. He passed the stable
with slow feet. Judge Morrow was
standing at the door, surrounded by
an admiring group, as were all the
rest of the noble steeds. Suddenly
the colt lifted his head and listened
He had caught the sound of familiar
footsteps; he saw him, and before
those about hiin could realize what
he was about to do, he had plunged
suddenly forward and reached Glendenning's side, whinnying in a manner that quite amused those about
him.
Glendenning drew the colt's face
down close to his own and rested
his head against it. Ah! what true,
what beautiful instinct told the animal that, despite his disguise, this
was his old friend Glendenning!
They took the horse away from
him quickly, remarking, as they noted the shabby clothos of tho dark,
Italian-appearing, slender young
man, that he had probably taken
care of the colt some time in the
past, turning and asking him if this
were not so. Glendenning nodded,
thinking that the best way.to end
the questioning.
In a very few moments all the riders, booted and spurred, came hurrying out from their quarters in response to a sharp clang of a . bell,
and in a trice had mounted their
Inn s, only awaiting tho signal to
bo off liko arrows from the bow.
Suddenly, at tho very last moment of time, Judge Morrow's rider
leaned forward heavily in the saddle, swayed an instant like n reed in
the wind, then dropped heavily to
the greensward. In an instant the
Wildest  confusion   reigned.
"Judge Morrow will have to be
stricken from tho race," cried a
score of voices, triumphantly, but
milling: "It will be too bad for the
young girl who owns the annual; it
may mean the loss of u fortune to
her."
At this Glendenning sprung forward,  trembling  in every  limb.
"Let mc ride him!'' he cried,
hoarsely. "Let ine take the place of
the man who was to have ridden
Judge Marrow. I will win the race-
with him, or die  in  the attempt!"
CHAPTER XIV.
There was but a moment of hesitation. Then it was decided to accept
his oflcr, as he was but a trifle heavier than the rider who had been taken ill so suddenly. Quickly the change
wns effected. An instant later tho
bugle sounded, the paddock gate
swung open, and the thousand
sounds and cries of the race-track
were swallowed up in a deafening
roar of applause as the horses came
tearing down the track, prancing
antl cavorting toward tbe grand
stand.
There were thirty thousand faces
spread out like a vast sea beforo
him, yet Glendenning saw, at tlio
llrst glance, but one in all that
vast concourse—the white, anxious,
beautiful face of Olive Kneeland shining like a star before him, guiding
hiin on to victory.
He snw her lean forward and
watch the horses intently, and when
she saw little Judge Morrow she
clasped her hands cntreatingly together, turning deadly pale. She did
not even observe the rider, her ga'/.e
was riveted so intently upon the
horse.
Suddenly ho saw her turn and
whisper to a young girl sitting beside her, and he recognized her'companion at once—sweet, gentle, fait—
haired Nannie, Olive's true little
friend. Antl even in that moment tho
thought came to hiin how loyal
Nannie wns to her friend; even the
loss of Olive's fortune mado no difference to her, and in his heart ho
blessed Nannie I'or that quality ol
sweet and noble sympathy which endeared her so to those who knew
her He looked anxiously about for
his brother Oscar, as he grew a little more accustomed to discerning
faces at that distance, and as he
came toward them. No, Oscar was
not with Olive. To the right of her,
and leaning over Nannie, his fiancee,
was Mr. Armstrong, his face and
keen, dark eyes all aglow, watching
Judge Morrow eagerly, as though he
were mentally summing up his
chances of success.
Glendenning had no time to lose in
further observation. His whole attention must be absorbed by his horse,
for now they had reached the grand
stand, and, amid the wild cheering,
the riders were attempting to form
the animals into line. This was at
last accomplished. There was an instant of expectancy, then the flag
dropped, and away they flew down
the curved road like swallows, tho
gay colors of the riders Hashing in
the sunshine, and the great race had
begun.
For a moment it is one pell-mell
rush. On, on they fly, like giant
greyhounds from the leash, down the
gray track, until they are but slow-
moving specks in the distance. Then
on they come again, thundering past
the grand stand at a maddening
pace, with Pessara in the lead, a,
dozen horses  dashing like the     wind
at his heels, and Judge Morrow-
poor Judge Morrow!—fully a score
of yards behind. A mad shout goes
up for Pessara. But the wiser ones
notice that Judge Morrow is running well within himself, and that
there is game in the gallant little
horso that the rider is holding back
with a steady hand, and there is an
answering shout, "Judge Morrow!
Judga Morrow!"
White to the lips, Olive Kneeland
sits and watches Nannie's hand
creeps confidingly to hers, cold as
lumps of ice, and clasps them gently-
"All of the horses show signs of
tho terrible strain—all save your
little Judge Morrow. He is fresh as
a daisy," murmurs Harry Armstrong, hopefully. But Olive does not
answer; her lips are mute. To see
little Judge Morrow running at that
frightful pace almost stuns her. She
feels like sobbing aloud, but the great
crowd about her hold her in check.
Again the gallant steeds are specks
in the distance. Now they pass the
curve and are on the homestretch,
dashing swiftly on to the finish.
Nearer, nearer sounds the thunder of
their oncoming hoofs. Thirty thousand people grow mad with wild intensity as they dash swiftly, steadily
onward. They are but a hundred
yards from the grand stand now,
with Pessara still in the van. But
the other horses have dropped further and further behind—all save littlo Judge Morrow, who gains steadily, steadily, inch by inch, until he
passes those before him, and now
there is but a ribbon of daylight
between himself and the great Pessara.
The excitement grows intense.
Nerves are thrilling like stricken
wires as down the long lane of white,
strained faces dash the racers almost
with the rapidity of lightning. Every
one rises to his feet in the mad hope
of catching a full view of the flyers,
and the air rocks, reels, and trembles
with the hoarse, delirious cries of
thirty thousand throats, hats sail
into the air like shoals of fish, and
faces are white as death.

The Datnra.
The datura, varieties of which nre
commonly known as the Jamestown
weed, or, more familiarly, the jlmsou
weed, the thorn npple (an allusion to
the shape of the seed case and Its
spines) and the devil's trumpet, recalling Its shape and villainous odor, retains Its name almost unchanged from
the Arabic.
ON OCEAN'S BED.
What Become, of Ship. Which Sink
to the Bottom of the Sea.
What becomes of the ship that sinks
In midocean? If It is of wood It takes,
in the first place, considerable time for
it to reach the bottom. In a hundred
or more futhoms of water a quarter of
uu hour will elapse before the ship
reaches bottom. It sinks slowly, and
wheu the bottom is reached it falls
gently Into the soft, oozy bed, with no
crash or breaking.
Of course If it is laden with pig Iron
or corresponding substances or if It ls
an Iron ship It sinks rapidly and sometimes strikes the bottom with such
force as to smash In pieces. Once
sunken a ship becomes the prey of the
countless Inhabitants of the ocean.
They swarm over and through the
great boat and make it their home.
Besides this they cover .every inch of
the boat with a thick layer of lime.
This takes time, of course, and when
one generation dies another continues
the work until finally the ship is so
laden with heavy incrustations, corals,
sponges and barnacles that If wood
the creaking timbers fall apart and
slowly but surely are absorbed In the
waste at the sea bottom.
Iron vessels are demolished more
quickly than those of wood, which
may last tor centuries. The only metals that withstand the chemical action
of tho waves are gold and platinum,
and glass also seems unaffected. No
matter how long gold may be hidden
In the ocean, it will always be gold
when recovered, and this fact explains
the many romantic and adventurous
searches after hidden submarine treasures lost ln shipwrecks.
KILLED THE LAUGH.
ST.  HELENA.
The   Trail.formation   of   Thl.   Once
Barren Volcanic Wa.te.
St. Helena was a barren volcanic
waste at the time Napoleon was sent
there. The Englishmen were there,
however, to stay and for duty, and,
though they had a hard scramble for
every drop of water they used, they
set about a beginning of making something grow toward sustaining life, or
at least modifying its conditions.
Gradually, by slow degrees, but surely,
their efforts were successful. Kindly
nature requires but little encouragement, and the dews fell and crystallized, and the herbage and shrubbery
spread, and little trees took root and
shed their seed, and the mountain In
the long course of years became largely covered, until at lust this one time
waterless heap of waste products of a
lifeless volcano became able to provide
millions upon millions of gallous ot
water, which is stored in its caverns,
for the ships that pass to and from the
Cape of Good Hope aud to Australia,
and beneath the shades of umbrageous
terraces, high up in the cool air, the
invalided soldier from tropical Africa
and Inalu snd the orient finds a restoring sanitarium which has brought
back to health and life many a weary
soul and stricken body. Truly there Is
magic In tbe rain and healing in the
forests!
Hadrian'. Wall.
Hadrian in A. D. 120 built a stone
wall from Bowness, near Carlisle, on
Solway frith, to the river Tyne, near
Newcastle. It was eighty miles long
and garrisoned by 10,000 troops. It
was twelve to twenty feet high at various points, eight feet thick at the top
and provided with a gallery in the rear
which enabled Its defenders to tnke
their stand with only head and shoulders visible to the enemy. At every
quarter of a mile there was a castle
witb a garrison of troops. Beacon
lights and signals were used, and on
an attack, whether by day or by night,
the uews was ut once flashed up und
down tlie wall from sea to sea.—London Sphere.

Tbe "gallus" marks the freeman and
the man of genuine, unpretending culture and civilization. Your snob and
your savage abhor it. In Mesopotamia
the wild bashi bazouk wears a belt; in
Yucatan the Indian wears a girdle of
shark's teeth; ln Senegambla the
shameless cannibal sports a gunny sack;
In AtlanUc City some years back the
dudes used to wear sashes. But find a
man who when he throws off his coat
to begin his daily toil lays bare a pair
of heavy sky blue galluses and you'll
find a man who pays his way ln the
world, loves his wife, rears bis children ln the fear of tbe Lord and votes
the straight ticket. The "gallus" Is
useful, It Is graceful, and properly
adorned with hand painted flowers and

ashamed of it, to conceal It or to abandon It for a somber leather belt is to

The Story of the Prayer In Ro.ainl'a
"Mo.e In  l'-_citt<>."
The sublime prayer of the Hebrews,
when preparing to cross the Red sea.
Is, perhaps, one of the most solemn
and majestically grand compositions
that can be found in the choral repertory, yet, at tho same time, simple to
a degree. This was an afterthought
of the composer and was not Introduced, until the second seasou of the
production of "Mose In Egltto" at Naples.
The opera then, as now, terminated
with the passage of the Red sea by
the Israelites; but, although the audiences were entranced with the music,
they Invariably saluted the passage of
the Red sea with peals of laughter,
owing to want of skill of the machinist and scene painter, who contrived
to reuder tbls portion of the affair superbly ridiculous and brought down
the curtain amid uproarious mirth.
Rossini exhibited hit usual indifference, but poor Tottola, the poet, waa
driven nearly crazy by this unwelcome termination of his literary labors and Intensely chagrined at the
idea of so sacred a subject exciting
'aughtcr. This lasted throughout the
first season; the next it was reproduced with similar brilliant success
(on tbe first night), for the music, and
similar laughter at the end of the opera. The next day, while Rossini was
Indulging ln his usual habit of lying
in bed and gossiping with a room full
ot frieuds, in rushed Tottola, In u most
excited state, crying out:
"Evlva, I have saved the third act!"
"How?" asked Rossini lazily.
"Why," replied Tottola, "I have
written a prayer for the Hebrews before crossing tbe dreadful Red sea,
and I did it all in one hour."
"Well," said Rossini, "if it has taken
you an hour to write this prayer I will
engage to make the music for it in a
quarter of the time. Here, give me
pen and Ink," saying which be jumped
out of bed, and in ten minutes be hud
composed the music without the aid
of a piano and while his friends were
laughing and talking around bim.
Thus, owing to tbe blundering Ignorance of a stage carpenter and scene
painter, tbe world is Indebted for the
most sublime pregbiera ever penned.
Night came. The audience prepared)
to laugh as usual when tlie Red sea
scene came, but when the new prayer,
commenced deatby silence prevailed,1
every note was listened lo with rapti
attention, and on Its conclusion thai
entire audience rose en masse andl
cheered for several minutes, nor did!
they ever again laugh at the passage
of the Red sea.

the physical differentiation between

slight. As the race grows old It develops. If you dressed a Burman boy
of eighteen In a girl's dress or a Bur-
mene girl of the same age In a boy'a
dress you could not distinguish quickly
true from false. Face ond figure and
voice are very similar. In ub old people
such as the French or tho Brahmans In
India a boy begins to differ from a girt
very early indeed. Their faces seem almost different types. Their figures
even at twelve could not be disguised
by any clothing. Their voices are utterly different."

A Lincoln Reminiscence.
When in the summer ot 1864 the Lin*
coins went to live ln the cottage near
the Soldiers' home outside Washington
the president was dally accompanied
on bis drives to and from the White
House by his special mounted escort
of tall Ohloans. There was serious
need for such an escort, for Early was
not far away from the city, but the
dally Journey sometimes had Its playful side. "The Magazine of American
History" quotes this reminiscence by
Lieutenant Ashmun of the escort: "It
was ln the early autumn of that year
when one morning on our ride ln to the
White House. 'Tad' Lincoln, who
alone was riding with his father, demanded that the carriage be stopped

There has been sobae diso?ssi,on in

into a oity municipality! and \vji hava
been asked our views upon the question.

with matters munioipal, being occupied
by the more immediate necessities of
improving thoir property and establish-. '
ing their homos
.  —The, fress.
Socialism.
Socialism ie a doctrine born of the.
intense louging of philanthropists to
liberate tho poople from intolerable
conditions in the cities. .
Tho doctrine' has no considerable,
foothold anywhere outside of the cities.
Its arguments aro based upon city conditions In our rurul cnnnni&uities lt
rnalfes no headway, simply because con-.
ditions which encourage it in the cities
do not exist iu tho couutry.
If the overcrowding in the cities,
could be counteracted, if the surplus,
population oould be induced to scatter
out and go to work, buildiug up the,
waste places in rural communities^
responding to the ernest demand for
laborers in the less populous portions of
the couutry, creating homes and farms
upon tho millious of square miles olj
unappropriated or easily accessible land
which impatiently awaits tho beneficent
touoh of human industry—Socialism
would at once cease to be a factor in
politics, and would onoe more become,
what it has so long been, a, cult of the
studio.

One of the new features iii fashiou
this wintor will be the extensive use of
mohair and mercerized cotton fabrics
which imitate furs. These fabrics are
of tho plush order, but are distinctly
hew iu that they simulate tho real thiiig
with remarkable fldelty. Most clever
Imitation-of all the flat furs are to be
found, Tho astrachan, the krimnier,
'Persian, broadtail, chinchilla, bear lind
ermine are shown in a variety of qualities and Colorings. The goods are GO
inches wide, and'are high priced.
Those fine imitation furs are of
English aud German make,, and the
demand exceeds the importations. In
the high-priced lines these materials
are made of the pure Turkish mohair,
whidh is the finest quality to be had.
They'do not in any ree_>ect reseirihle
the old-fasbioued crushed (Hushes, bnt

The demand is largely on black,
brown and gray in astrakhan, broadtail, caracul and Persian patterns. To
desirable, these plnsh,es muBt have the
distinctive fur pajttorb. Manufacturers
of both men's a$d women's garmentB

EX-MAYOR CRUM30
RECOMMENDS PE-RU-NA
PRESCRIPTIONS.
"My Endorsement of Pe-ru-na Is
Based On Its Merits."
—Ed. Crumbo.
ED. CRUMBO, Ex-Mayor of New
Albany, Ind., writes from {'11 E.
Oak street:
"My endorsement of Peruna is
based on its merits.
"If a man is sick he looks anxiously for something that will cure him,
and  Peruna will do the work.
"I know that it will cure catarrh of
the head or stomach, indigestion,
headache and any weary or sick feeling.
"It is bound to help anyone, if used
according to directions.
"1 also know dozens of men who
speak in the highest terms of Peruna
and have yet to hear of anyone being
disappointed in it."
Mr. Crumbo, in a .'.iter letter, dated
Aug. 25, 1904, says:
"My health is good, at present, but
if I should have to take any more
medicine 1 will fall back on Peruna."
I ' Clock Inscriptions.
In former times it was the custom of
clockmakers to Inscribe on tbe dial
plates of their clocks quaint verses,
one of tbe most common being the following:
I serve thee here with all my might
To tell the hours by day, by nlgfct.
Therefore example take by me
To serve thy God as I serve thee.
Another favorite Inscription was
"Tempus Fuglt," or "Time Flies," and
thereby hangs a tale. A well known
English clockmaker who flsrnrlshed toward the close of the last century, on
being asked by a customer whether a
•certain clock was of home manufacture,
replied: "Oh, certainly. Don't you see
the name, sir—Tummns Fugit?   I often
have his Clocka throno-ll my I mm— 'I
A Hard Shot.
A prominent lawyer ln Ohio, whe
was very eccentric, always rubbed his
hands and went through several other
movements before speaking. Oue day
while ln court a younger lawyer, after
seeing him do this several times, got
up and did It, too, In a very slow and
deliberate manner, and, after saying
what ho was going to, sat down,
whereupon the older man got up and
said, "That young mau acts like a good
lawyer, but he talks like a fool."
London  Wealher,
We may as well own up to the truth
that the 'conventional abuse of our climate and our weather has been greatly
overdone. When we are Inclined to
envy countries whose meteorological
conditions have less of the clement of
"glorious uncertainty" than our own,
wo are much too ready to overlook tho
Immense advantage wo possess in our
almost absolute freedom from violout
extcemes.—London World.
A Medical Explanation of Why Tber
Are   Written   In   Latin.
The use of Latiu by physicians In
prescription writing is commonly regarded as a harmless survival of
medii-valism. Occasionally a lay writer
suggests Its abandonment. In commenting on a recent note to this effect
In a dally paper, whioh advocates the
compulsory use of English lu prescriptions, tho Druggists' Circular and
Chemical Gazette takes occasion to
make a strong defense of tho time
honored practice.   Says this paper:
"Suppose the sapient writer quoted,
whoso utterances may sound nil right
to those who know no more of his subjects than he doos, should fall sick and
his physician should decide that the
ono thing needful to save his life was
Geranium robei'tianum. If there were
a law preventing the doctor from prescribing lu Latin he would have to
choose one of the upward of a dozen
English names for this drug. Suppose
he chose 'redshanks' and so wrote the
word in his prescription. When the
druggist went to prepare the medicine
he would find that 'redshanks' was the
English name of at least four entirely
different plants—namely, the one already mentioned, Polygonium am-
phiblum, Polygonium persicaria and
Rumex acetosa.
"As with redshanks so with hundreds
of other drugs. Aaron's beard may be
Cotlnus continus, Cymbalaria eym-
balarla or Saxlfraga sarmentosa. Of
snakeroots there nre numberless kinds.
Suppose the English writing doctor
wanted to be sure of getting the right
kind, so specified black snakerooL
Then is the druggist to dispense Clml-
clfuga raeemosa, Asarum canadense or
Sanlcula marilandieaV"

MAKES  NEW  BLOOD,
That is How Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
Cure the Common Ailments of life
Making new blood. That is just
what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are always doing — actually making new
blood. This new blood strengthens
every organ in the body, and strikes
straight at the root of anaemia, and
the common ailments of life which
have their origin in poor,weak, watery blood. Mrs. A. H. Seeley, of Stirling, Out., tells what Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills did for her fourteen year
old sister, Miss Annie Sager, after
other treatment had failed. She says:
"For some years Annie had not been
well. She woultl take spells of dizziness and headache-! that would last
for several days, and lier whole body
would become dry and hot as though
she was burning-up with fever. Her
lips would swell until near the bursting point, and then when the fever
W'ould leave her the outer skin of the
lips would peel off. She doctored
with two different doctors, but they
did not succeed in curing her, and
the trouble seemed gradually to be
growing worse. Then we began giving
her Dr. Williams' link Pills and under this treatment she has recovered
her health. The headaches antl dizziness have gone; her color is improved; her appetite better, and she
has had no further attacks of the
fever which baffled the doctors. We
nre greatly plensed with what Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have done for
her, and recommend them to other
sufferers."
It wns the rich red hlood Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually make which
cured Miss Super. That is why these
pills cure all common ailments like
anaemia nnd debility, headaches and
backaches, indigestion, rheumatism,
neuralgia, St. Vitus dance and tlie
Bpecial ailments that prey on the
health and happiness of girls and
women of nil flges. Get tlie genuine

Your Doctor
Can cure your Cough or Cold,
no question about that, but—
why go to all the trouble and
inconvenience of looking him up,
and then of having his proscription
filled, when you can step into any
drug store fn Canada and obtain
a bottle of SHILOH'3 CURE
for a quarter.
Why pay two to five dollars
when a twenty-five cent
bottle of SHILOH will cure you
as quickly T
Why not do as hundreds of
thousands Of Canadians have
done for the past thirty-four
years: let SHILOH be your doctor whenever a Cough or Cold

Cough or Cold cure it with

t      Sunlight Soap is better than other soaps,
but is best when used in the Sunlight way.
To appreciate the simplicity and ease of
washing with Sunlight Soap in the Sunlight
way you should follow directions.
After rubbing on the soap, roll up each
—---piece, immerse in the water, and go away.
Sunlight Soap
will do its work in thirty to sixty minutes.
Your clothes will be cleaner and whiter than if washed
in the old'fashioned way with boiler and hard .*ubbing.

Odd De-lues Used by Which to Knnlly
Identify  1Iiikuiii_<-.
A curious fashion of marking trunks
by some Individual and odd device has
come iuto practice. It ls a trlok that
helps to Identify one's baggage Instantly, even at a distance, In a crowded
railway station, and thus facilitates
travel, especially abroad, whero so
much red tape entangles baggage
transportation.
Some of the devices used are queer,
to say the least. A lover ot dogs had
big brlndle's heads in brown aud white
painted at Intervals on all her trunks
and suit cases beforo sailing for Germany. She felt sure, sho said, that
she would be able to Identify her baggage anywhere by these signs.
Another curious design is that of
skull and erossbones, done In black,
white aud red, ou top, sides and etuds
ot trunk and on the bottom of every
bag of one traveler.
Dumbbell designs In red, white eud
blue identify another lot of baggage.
Ono society woman has her trunks
all marked with a design of a pair of
gloves, painted red, black and gold,
nnd appearing as lf just taken off tho

A PLANET OF GREAT PEAKS. |
Peculiarity   of  the   HIhk  Mo'yijfllns
of the  Moon. "C
The moon Is really anil truly a great
planet of mountains, Its whole visible
surface being dotted with elevations
of curious shapes and of extraordinary
height. We say "Us whole visible surface" and hasten to explain that we
make this statement simply because
the eye of man has never seen but one
side of the surface of the moon. What
we see convinces us that the little
planet Is extremely mountainous, for
on the "end" exposed to our view
there are no less than 30,000 peaks,
varying In height from 2,000 feet to
four miles. When we consider the fact
that this lunarian world ls only one
thirty-second part as large as the
earth we can easily see why It deserves the title of the "plauet of great
mountains." There Is a peculiar thing
about these 30,000 moon peaks. Ench
and every one of them has a ringlike
form, the open end of the conical point
being of greater or lesser diameter, according to the height of the mountain.
In a low grade telescope these peaks
resemble true velcanoes, but when
viewed through a high grade glass it is
seen that the depression in the center
of the queer "ring mountain" is often
so great as to be below the general
level of the surrounding country. The
depth of these depressions ls calculated In a curious manner, by figuring
on the relative shadows they cast
when the sun is shining full upon
them. The diameter of these "ring
mountains" varies grently, some of the
larger ones being 50, 100 or even 150
mtles, while the smaller look like post
holes when viewed through a good telescope.

H, MR. POSTIE!" called Genevieve Deere through the
open latticed window of
the breakfast room, "have
you any letter for ue children?"
Over her shoulder peeped Brother
Ben and llttle Sister Helen, their
eager faces full of tho same Inquiry, aa
the postman, who was about to ring
the doorbell of the house on the opposite side of the street, turned at the
sound of Genevieve's voice and
glanced, up their way.
"Let me see,"" he answered. "Why—
yes, I think I have a letter for you."
"Oh, oh!" squealed Helen. "It's
frum Auntie Wiggins, I know!"
"Oh, may we come and get It from
you right away?" asked Genevieve.
"I'll run across to you," called Ben
before the gootl-natured postman had
time to so much as onen his mouth to
Kay "yes." Delving Into his bag. he
produced the letter just as Ben reached his side.
"Thank you," said Ben, and flew
back to the house, where Genevieve
and Helen were Impatiently waiting
to see the address and postmark of
the letter.
"Yes, It's Auntie Wiggins' writing!"
said  Genevieve.
"And the postmark says Walton
Hills." said Ben.
Helen, who had not yet learned to
read writing and did not understand
the meaning of postmarks, thrust a
paper cutter Into Genevieve's hand.
"Oh, do open the letter, sister," she
begged.
"Poor Helen! We wont keep her
waiting any  longer,"  declared Gene-
Thoroughbred Dogs Need
to Work
YOU boys and girls are used to
thinking of dogs as Idle and useless, unless they happen to be
good watchdogs, In which case
you might consider them somewhat useful at night.
In general, however, lt ls true that
our dogs are mere pots. Antl, indeed,
we are probably all the fonder of them
because they are pets, rather than
beasts of burden.
Many poople. however, are coming to
think that If we would be really kind
to dogs we would train them to work
for us. This Is especially true of finely
bred dogs, which are growing more and
more stupid and more and more delicate.
Dog fanciers toll us It would be a
great   blessing   to   prize-dogs   if   they
could be regularly employed in some
kind of work. They would feel much
better physically, and the number of
deaths would be tremendously decreased.
Great Danes, mastiffs, St. Bernards,
Newfoundlands and one or two other
breeds could be made most useful, for
instance, to carry garden truck and
milk to customers. An English friend
writes us:
"1 have relatives In Holland, and I
frequently pay visits to a town In the
north part of that country. The house
where I stay is next door to a baker's.
This baker has a dog which takes him
round the town twice a week. A draper, living about a stone's throw further
on, has a dog which takes his travelers
regularly on long rounds from village to
village, and he, too, has hatl the same
dog for some yoare now. But these
records are ns nothing to the postman's
two dogs, who have drawn him on alternate days from Assen to Wlnschoten, a
distance of some twenty to twenty-two
miles, returning the same afternoon, for
the last seven or eight years, or perhaps more. There are many who would
not be able to follow their callings as
milk venders or small market gardeners
but for the help of their dogs."
The Dutch Societies for tho Prevention of Cruelty to Animals have
long since got over tho Idea that It
is cruel to make such flogs work. On
the other hand, they say the kindly
treated working dogs are by far hap-
■iler and healthier than the Idle dogs.
Uo they now got up working-dog exhibitions, and give prizes to tho owners
whose dogs give evidence of the best
treatment.
vleve, and she  opened the letter Immediately.
What a lovely, long letter It was—
the flrst one they had ever had from
Auntie-Wiggins! For Auntie Wlggln?
hail spent many years abroad, and.
they had never so much as seen her
until about two months before tho
time of this story, when a great big
ship had brought her over from Italy. -.
And oh! how like a fairy godmother
she then seemed, with gifts for Helen
and gifts for Ben and gifts for Mar-''
guerlte. ;
Since her arrival what good timet* '.
thoy had had listening to hor fascinating stories—somo of which had.
been born Into print, and so boen v
road by thousands of children who \
had not the happiness of owning her -
as thoir Auntie Wiggins.
A week before this story begins she
had gone away to Walton Hills, but the
last thing she had said was:
"Now, Genevieve and Ben and Helen,
don't fall to write Auntie Wiggins a
letter some time this week."
"You will answer it, will you?" they
had asked.
"Indeed,  I  shall!"
So thoy hatl written a letter—Genevieve the flrst half, Ben the second
half and llttle Helen lif, postscript.
And now here was Auntie Wiggins'
answer:
A SURPRISING LETTER
"Dear Genevieve, Ben and Helen:
"*iour loiter received a warm welcome. ^
"But, my three deary dears, what
ailed your letter? I have struggled
through Chinese puzzles, but never,
never have I had r.uch a jumbled
letter to unjumble as this one from
you.
"Antl whon I came to Helen's cunning llttle postscript I was most puzzled of all. But at last I made it
out, "SaC kFuL uV gl.OvEs AnDl.
Askli'T fill, uv KltTenS—.sack full
of gloves and basket full of kittens."
"That wasn't what 1 printed!" Interrupted Helen; "I didn't say anything
about kittles 'n' gloves!",     . ■
"Never mind, ilonr," said Genevieve,
"It's very queer and I don't understand;
but let's see what Auntie Wiggins says
next."
"It's awfully queer." muttered Ben;
"but  go on,  Genevieve."
"Then I understood whnt Helen was
sending me, for Just thon Mrs. Wagner came to tell mo a large sack and
basket hail como. There was such a
inlawing In the house, as if all the
cats In Walton Hills had come to seo
t Ml 'Oh, Just open them, please,
drs. Wagner,' said I, 'and count the
ihlngs in thom.'
"So In a few minutes Mrs Wagner
came and said, '500 pairs of glovos in
the sack and 250 kittens in the basket.'
" 'Dear me,' said I, 'that makea
1000 gloves! Four times as many
gloves as kittens! It's very kind of
Helen, but why diu sne send so many
gloves? For I haven't 1000 hands, you
know, Mrs. i.agner.'
"And Mrs. Wagner said. 'No. indeed, you're 998 hands short of that!'
"However, tbe next day I made out
what to do, and I took the basket
with me and walked over to the vll-

HAVE   you   ever  tried   making   a
fountuln. boyB anil girls?
Ask your mother for throe tin
linking piiii-i, one quito largo, one
smaller and tin- third smallest nf all.
Next got a yard-lung section of gas
pipe from the plumber, also a length of
rubber hose, a tiny rubber ball and a
ynrd or so of tine wire.
Ask the plumber lo run the gas pipe
through the three pans and solder the
openings to prevent leaks. That Is, do
so If yuu think yuu cannot do the Job
yourself.
Now fasten one end of your fine wire
to the little ball and run the wire
through the pipe, fastening it at the
lower end so as to keep the ball resting
loosely on the upper end.
By this time your fountain Is nearly
ready. The largest pan Is at the bottom anil the other two pans are above
It at intervals of about 12 Inches, the
pipe rising 12 Inches above the smallest
pan. '•/.
Now set the fountain wherever you
wish It to be, close to a spigot or reservoir. Take your rubber tubing and fitting it bver the lower end of the gas
pipe, connect the latter with the spigot
of your water pipe or reservoir.
Turn on tho water nnd lt will play
nicely out of the top of your pipe, lifting the ball as high as the wire will let
It rise.
If you want a prettier effect, bore a
hole In tho pipe between pans, and thus
give the water two or three additional
openings through which to play.
Paint the whole fountain white or
green and It will be ieal good looking.

I lage girls' school, and I said to the
head teacher:
" 'How many little girls are there
at school today?'
" 'Exactly 250, madam.'
" 'And have they all been good all
day?'
" "As good as gold!' v
"So I waited outside the door with
my basket, and as each little girl
came out I just popped a soft little
kitten into her ha nils! Oh. what joy
there was! The little girls went all
dancing home, nursing their kittens,
and the whole air was full of purring! Then, the next morning. I
went to the school, before It opened,
to ask the llttle girls how the kittens had behaved in the night.
"And they all arrived sobbing and
crying, and their faces and hands
were all covered with scratches, and
thev had the kittens wrapped up In
their littlo frocks to keep thom from
scratching any more. And they
sobbed out, 'Tho kittens havo been
scratching us all night'
"So then 1 said to myself, 'What
a nice llttle girl Hulen Is. Now I
see why she sent all those gloves—' "
HELEN IS MYSTIFIED
"B,.t I didn't rend gloves!" expos,
tula ted Helen.
Genevieve and Ben still looked ruz.
zled, but a half-enlightened (and fool-,
ish) look now began to dawn on theit
laces.   Genevieve read on:
"—and I see'why thoro are four times
as many gloves as kittens,' and I said
aloud to the llttle girls, 'Never mind,
my dear children, 'do your lessons
very nicely and don't cry any more,
and when school is over youii find me
at the door, and you shall see what
you shall see!'
"So In the evening when thoy came,
with all their Utile kittens wrapped
up In Ihelr frocks, there was
1. at the door, with Helen's big sack!
And, as each little girl came out, I
Just popped Into her hand two pairs of
gloves! And each little girl unrolled
her frock and took out an angry little
kitten, spitting and snarling, with its
claws sticking out like a hedgehog.
But It hadn't time to scratch, for, In
a moment, lt found all Its four paws
poprtil into nice, soft, warm gloves,
and then the kittens got quite BWeet-
tcmperid, and gentle, and began purring again!

of Its gloves, and lf two mice, it takes
off two gloves, and if three, lt takes
off three, and if four, it takes off all
four. But the moment they've caught
the mice, they pop their gloves on
again, because they know we can't
love them without their gloves. For,
you see, 'gloves' have 'love' Inside
them—there's no love outside.
"So all the little girls said: 'Please
thank Helen, and we send her 260 luvea
and 1(100 kisses In return for her 1000
gloves  and 2W kittens!' "
"Oh!" ejaculate— Helen, her face
brightening, "I see! Auntie Wiggins
didn't read my printing right. I said 'I
sent two sacks full of love, and baskets full of kisses, and she thought I
said gloves and kittens! What a funny
mistake!"
Genevieve and F.en looked at one
another a little shamefacedly. Then
they broke out laughing—a trifle sheepishly.
"It's our bad spelling, I know, and ri-.e
meant ull liiis for you and me, Genevieve," salit  Fen.
"Yes, I'm sure she did," assented
Genevieve, "and Ben, we deserve It,
for' we do spell atro-o-oclously!"
"That's so," agreed Ben, "well, It's
up to us to do something to please
Auntie Wiggins."
"We'll have to write another letter,
Ben, and spell properly in that one."
"Yes."
Just then the door bell rang and an
express parcel was handed in for Genevieve and Ben.
What do  you  think  It contained?
Why,  a speller.
The next day another letter went Into
the mall box addressed to Auntie Wiggins, and it was very different from the
first letter ln one Important respect—
the words were all spelled right!
t*ames to Play
TRY the game of alliteration
some day. It will keep your
memory "on the run," and you
will enjoy it all the more on
that account.
Choose a leader first, then all of you
players listen to him carefully. He
will give out a sentence, every word
of which begins with the same letter.
Each of you must repeat It after him.
Then he repeats this sentence, adding to lt this time, however, another
sentence, the words of which all begin with another letter. You must repeat both sentences after him correctly.
Any one making a mistake must
drop out of the game and watch for
errors in  the remaining players.
Ab the players become fewer in
number, they must repeat the sentences after their leader more and
more rapidly and without a moment's
hesitation.
The last one left gets the prize, and
certainly deserves lt.
Here are some suggested sentences
which the leader might use:
"Four   fishermen   fishing  for   flddle-
"Slx slippery snakes slipping slowly
southward."
"Nine nautical Norwegians nearlng
neighboring Norway's narrows."
"Ten   tiny,   toddling   tots   trying  to I
train their tongues to trill."
The leader can make up sentences
beginning with the omitted numerals
between one and ten, lf he wishes. Or
he can have his sentences open with
colors.
I

THK players sll. down In a circle or
In iwn npiioslle rows. The flrst
player begins by saying: "The
minister's cat Is an ambitious cut."

play the gurr' -to not permit any one to
use the two adjectives given abuvo. but
require thom iu think up adjectives of
their own.
The next, time around tho adjectives
must begin w.h "H," the next with "C,"
and so on until the entire alphabet has
boen gone through. Tn vary the game,
other expressions may be e_rloyed,
like "The doctor's dog," etc.     ****• ,
