landing one of his bridge party, none

changing the game to poker. "It's
bad practice." said the card sharp, "to

much risk, but it's all right In 'his

The Barbecue.
The word "barbecue" Is derived from
the Spanish word "barbacao" and Is a
native Haitian term for a wooden
framework supporting meat or flsh to
be smoked or dried over a flre. In
Its popular sense it menns a large social or political entertainment in the
open air at which sheep or oxen are
roasted whole and all the feasting Is
on a most liberal scale. Georgia Is
probably the native home of the barbecue and is called the Barbecue State.
Who prepared the first barbecue is unknown. Deer, bear and other game
constituted the meat roasted In the
barbecues of fifty years agO.

The Doctors of Mount Clemens Institute Prove the Value of These Pills
In the Case of Mr. S. Harris, Government Inspector of Elevators of
Hamilton, Ont.
From the Star, Dundas, Ont.
We were much pleased to see Mr.
S. Harris, the well known Government
inspectat of elevetors'of Hamilton, in
Dundas the other day, greatly improved in health and appearance since
the last time we met him. As vs
known to many of the Star readers,
Mr. Harris has recovered from a long
and severe illness, and is now quite
able to attend his usui.1 duties. From
Mrs long illness many predicted Mr.
Harris would never recover, and the
fact that he is once more able to go
around very nearly as spry as he did
before he was attacked, is little less
than marvellous to \them.
In reply to our reporter, Mr. Harris related the early stages of the attack and subsequent sufferings which
he experienced, and while he did not
court publicity, decided that in tho
public interest he would relate the
circumstances of this wonderful cure.
About fourteen months ago Mr. Harris woke up one morning with a stiff
neck; try as he would, and after applying all the remedies externally
that he could hear or think of, he
was unable to get rid of it. The stiffness moved to the spine and shoulders, then to his hips, until it made
almost a cripple of him, and it was
with extreme difficulty that he could
get out of bed at all. As for walking
it was out of the question with him.
The attack became so bad that he
was unable to put on either his coat,
vest or hat. From time to time he
called in various medical men, none
of whom were able tj give him much j
relief. It was almost impossible for
him to raise his feet from the floor,
and all pronounced his a severe case
of muscular rheumatism, giving him
little encouragement as to his ultimate recovery. However, one medical
gentleman finally recommended the
baths, and as a last resort Mr. Harris decided to follow his advice, and
went to Mount Clemens, Mich. As
is customary with all patients, Mr.
Harris had to undergo a thorough
examination in order to determine if
the system can stand this rigorous
treatment. After several examinations
had been made as to Mr. Harris'
condition, the physicians there finally
decided that he was not suffering
from muscular rheumatism at all, but
that his ailment was of the nerves,
and told him that the baths would
do him little or no good; that he required altogether different treatment,.
Mr. Harris placed himself in the
hands ol one of the physicians there,
and what seemed quite strange to
him, they did nothing for liim but
administer medicine in the shape of
pills. Shortly after he commenced
this treatment he began to
improve perceptibly, and his
appetite greatly improved. He
began to walk around slowly at first,
but soon was able to get around more
'linn he could for a year previous. He
was able to put on his coat and vest,
and began to feel like his former self.
His improvement was so rapid and
perceptible not only to himself, but to
others, that he was plied with all
sorts of questions as to his wonderful
recovery. The medical attendant was
questioned as to the nature of the medicine which was being administered.
Much to the surprise of Mr. Harm
and other patients there, he was told
that it ^vas a well known Canadian
remedy, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
was advised to continue their use
for a time on his return home. Mr.
Harris is loud in his praise of the
wonderful curative qualities of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
consented to make bis case public in
the hope that he might benefit others
similarly afflicted. Mr. Harris has
long been a resident, of Hamilton, being a well known builder of elevators,
ns well as Government inspector of
the same, so that his prominence and

Of Jet in a Popular
A Little Series of
/ Carved Amethyst for
tke Cenire <S"tone
TyTOT for years has the wearing of
^|    Jewelry  amounted  to  the posl-
I \ tive fad that it-is this year. Old-
fashioned styles vie with new,
exquisite bits, with new beauties and
xiew uses for semi-precious stones discovered every little white.
Necklaces lead in popularity, every
kind, from the many versions of "festoon necklaces" to barbaric-looking
things of heavy beads of amber, and
even of jet, being worn. Some, as quaint
as can be, are made of garnets, the
stones grouped to form flowers or stars
and swung from fine little chains.
Silver collars, made to fit high about
the throat, are moulded in Oriental designs, and show curiously carved stones
set ln by way of decoration. And slim
gold chains have pendants, delicately
enameled, from which dangles a single
jewel, shaped like a tear-drop—the sort
of pendant that is called "la Vaillere"
after the beautiful woman who, during
the time of Louis XIV, for a little while
queened it over the gay French court.
Amber beads are tne greatest innovation, In spite of the fact that Paris
has been enthusing so heartily over
amber all spring. The surprise is not
so much in the use of amber as ln the
size of the beads best liked, for they
are as big as long white grapes, and
besides the clear kind there are beads
which are quite opaque, with milky
streaks shot through.
An occasional necklace looks as though
lt might bave been dug up Irom the
ruins of old palaces, so perfectly has
the old style been repeated; while in another the graceful, swirling lines of art
Houvean may be apparent—a couple of
mermaids clasping hands about a great
pearl, for Instance, or an orchid enameled In a pale iridescence, with an opal
Which glows and deepens in the very
freart of it.
Collarless blouses have brought about
certain necklace styles, as inevitably
as short sleeves have accomplished a
sweeping re. lval of bracelets. And
many a woman for whom the collarless
blouse Is a little trying finds It possible
to soften the hara little line at the base
of the throat by a collar of silver or
Bracelets are almost as popular aa
necklaces—more so, some people Bay.
Bangle bracelets are oftenest worn,
varying In width from wide, flat bands
(perhaps delicately etched, perhaps perfectly plain, perhaps finished with that
queer greenish tinge which Is always eo
distinctive) to some no thicker than a
wedding ring. Copies of some old styles
show horseshoes, the ends left open; or
bars, apparently crude and unfinished,
which have been bent to form a circle,
but an Incomplete one.
The old engagement bracelet has gone
Its way, its successor being much more
satisfactory, although lt looks exactly
like the other, older style. But the new
enes can be taken off without having
ihem filed off—a tiny hole near the
clasp permits a pin to be inserted, which
releases the spring again.
But the loveliest of all the new
bracelets ls on.- of two narrow gold
bars, held together by tiny figures of
gold, each Inset with a diamond.
Quaint sliver bracelets are set with
great carved stones—amethysts or chry-
Fopr_.se or turquoise, or any one of a
dozen other popular stones—an occasional bracelet set with two, three or
even four different stones.
Buckles are legion, some of them so
laden with stones that very little of the
setting  is   to   be   seen;   but   the   more
Oul by
popular ones are those flat ones of stiver or gold, left perfectly plain for the
engraving of the wearer's Initials, or
engraved in a simple all-over design.
MoBt of them are made to buckle, but a
number are really no more than giant
brooches lu buckle shape.
In brooches, floral designs dominate
the styles, and enameling shows new
iridescent effects. But a thousand and
one new pins have come out, In sets for
blouses, plain or enameled, or set with
strange stones (like the "eye" In a peacock's feathers); and the long pins
which the young girl uses to fasten her
ribbon bow, usually take the form of
riding whips or crops, or a golf stick or
Earrings have gained In popularity a
little,   but only the  screw earrings  are

these boxes, and are made of wood, with

Oreat balls of amber or jit make the
heads of the newest hatpins, although
the same floral designs which are used
for brooches are adapted to meet the requirements of hatpins, and others have
a single big stone (which may be any
one of a dozen kinds) for the head,
while here and there ls seen an exquisite thing ln the shape of a dragonfly,
poised ns lf ready to take flight.
One of the most marked points of this
year's fashions ia the greater variety of
stones used, even In comparison, with
last year. Almost any shade of a color
can be matched ln a semi-precious jewel. In green alone there are jade,
chrysoprase, obsidian, malachite, aquamarine, olivine and several others not
so well known.

\ /\ /    lie?" asked Mrs. Raymond
V V     of her son.
"    " "Matter!"  he replied,   "I
am angry enough to break all the commandments—and it's Sunday, too; hut I
am disappointed." ,-. '
"But why are you disappointed?" Inquired his mother.
"Oh, well, 1 don't know—only I had
set my heart upon the appointment, and
I had worked so hard for flrst place.
"You say you do not know really why
you are disappointed. Well, perhaps
you really don't know because you never
bother analyzing your emotions or feelings, but regard them as the natural
outcome of events. But this I do know
—you are not disappointed because you
had set your heart upon it; for, if you
had, you would not have known disappointment—one failure would sharpen
your wits to try another device to win
"i know a man who was told he was
to lose his position. It meant everything to him. Instead of wasting his
brain matter and nervous energy in bell g blue and disappointed, he set about
making himself necessary. A series or
new things, hatched out of determination, began to show worth, and instead
of being dispensed with he became indispensable. Why? Simply because the
world ls full of commonplace matter. It
already knows about it. We are an
hungry for new deeds and ideas.
"That's all very well, mother; but I
have no chance now to show my wortn
until I get an appointment, and it does
seem I have hard luck."
"Surely, my son, you are not going to
be one of those creatures who, Just because his father has a little money, ls
going to sit still and expect sugar plums
to fall into his lap without the effort of
picking them. Granting that you did
work and study for this particular thing,
are you going to count your labor for
naught?" >
"Why not?" said her son.
"Can't you see that you have been
building up your character, preparing
yourself for some future achievement
which may mean more than you lost? If
you give way to disappointment, you
weaken your rature; you lose a victory
over yourself; you show also that your
motive was weak. And if such be thel
case, you would not be able to make goodi
lf success had been yours." j
"Now, mother, you know you would bef
disappointed If you were not invited to
Mrs. Solone's reception, or if it would
storm so you could not go." '
"Indeed, you don't know your mother.
If I were forgotten, I should certainly
feel lt was unintentional. My pride
would forbid me thinking otherwise. I
would prompty give an affair of my own
and invite Mrs. Solone. 1 would be sure
to be remembered next time. 'Flies
were  never caught  with  vinegar.'
"If rain prevented, what would be the
use of counting raindrops, numbering
my sighs by them as they glistened on
the window panes? You see, I am not
brilliant or original, so It would be a
good time to improve my conversation
by hunting up some one else's witticisms
lo be used at my next affair.
"Tears, sighs and heartaches ure out
of fashion. They are scarcely used at
funerals now. Mourning veils came in
fashion, no doubt, to shield grief; today
they are most useful to hide the lack
of it."
"Do you mean, mother, you are never
disappointed in people?"
"I used to be, but experience has
taught me it's a fearful waste of* time.
I try to think of a way to remedy Ihe
evil. Suppose your father drank. I
should certainly pray for him, but, as
we all know men drink mostly for love
of companionship, my best prayers
would be to offer a series of interesting
diversions. I hope I wus never such a
fool as to believe that my duty to be
diverting ended the duy I was married.
Ah, no! It would be your father's turn
to be disappointed if I had ceased to
try to oe as charming,, und more so,
than before he waB good enough to give
me his name to grace."
"Mother, now I know why you and
father do not quarrel like other married
people. You are not disappointed in each
"If we wish the world to be a song,
let us not forget to make It so. Keep
busy; then there is no time for grief.
We soon learn to believe that things
go on ln thilr natural order, one
thought or consequence being the outcome of another. Expect nothing of
man, that you may not be disappointed
ln man.

Lace Neatly Appliqued
TO PIECE lace or make seams so
that the Joining ls not perfectly

However, there Is no reason why any
woman who can do artistic needleworta

The sewing line of a lace joining:

is impossible to do this throughout the
entire length of a seam, small flguresi
may be cut out and appltqued on top

Cluny lace can be easily pieced by
matching the design perfectly and sewing the bars that match closely together. Cut away all the superfluous
pieces, overhand the sewed bar, and)
neatly finish all raw edges.

If lace is to be joined in an ordinary

The Joy of Detail
DO YOU know that you have missed half the pleasure of life IC

Everywhere this unholy love may
assart Itself. From the room ln which
absolutely everything follows a certain scheme to the costume where*
there is not one fleck of any color,
save the one or two previously decided on, it Is in evidence.
Perhaps when you were a girl yot*
read "The Wide, Wide World." Do
you remember how Mrs. Montgomery

that fascinating list of things that,
followed when Ellen's back was turned? And that workbJx! Vou may.
detest sewing, but, I'll warrant youi
your pulses beat faster when even the

How you did long for some such trip,

Then and there you decided tha*
henceforth everything you possessed!
or wore would match, and nothing
would ever be omitted. Oh! the Ita—s

August 3rd.
Chicago.—Judge Landis in the
United States District Court to-day
imposed a fine upon the Standard Oil
Qmnpany of Indiana of $29,240,000,
the maximum amount upon each one
of the one thousand four hundred
and sixty-two counts of the indictment on which the company was recently convicted for rebating.
The judge also recommended that
a call be issued for the special Grand
jury which is to consider the other
party to the rebating operations of
which the Standard Oil Company was
found guilty, and it is thought probable that within a short time proceedings will be commenced against
the Chicago & Alton Railroad Company for the alleged commission of
similar offences.

It is a mistaken idea that hard
work kills. Hard work never kills.
If an individual gets plenty of sleep,
and takes good care of his constitution, ho is in shape to do hard work.
The man who makes the most in
the business world is tho man that
works hardest, not necessarily doing
the most things with his hands, but
doing the most things with his brain.
The more you do with your brain the
less your hands have to do.
lt needs bard work to make a success, but you mustn't let worry mix
in with your hard work. Hard work
1 rings success, but to do hard work
the'machinery must be in good order.
There is one sort of man that there
is no place for in the universe, and
that is the wahhler, the man on the

preached the Dedicatory Sermon' in
the afternoo-. The Dedicatory Ceremonies were taken part in by the
Venerable Rev. Dr. E. Robson, who

When it came to the venerable Dr.
Robson to read the impressive service, every ear was strained to catch
his words. As the aged clergyman
read the passage, "A House Not Made
With Hands, Eternal in the Heavens," he and bis hearers were iiee'ply
moved by tlio words link tlm occasion.
The hymn, "Glorious Things of
Thee Are Spoken," was then sung,
and the service was brought to a

Benediction hy Dr. Sipprell.

TROVE went to the inn at Dan-
nemoru that evening he left
Darrel and there found a letter. It said that Leblanc was
living near St. Albans. Posted In
Plattsburg and signed "Henry Hope,"
the letter gave no hint of bad faith,
%._; with all haste he went to tbe place
., nMned. He was there a fortnight,
seeking the Frenchman, but getting no
word of htm, and then came a new letter from the man Hope. It said now
tbat Leblanc had moved on to Middle-
bury. Trove went there, spent the
last of his money and sat one day in
tbe tavern offlce, considering what to
do, for now, after weeks of wandering,
he was, it seemed, no nearer the man
be sought. He bad soon reached a
thought of some value—this information of tbe unknown correspondent
was at least unreliable, and be wonld
give it no farther heed. What should
he do? On tbat point he was not Ion*
undecided, for while he was thinking
of It a boy came and said, "There's a
lady waiting you in the parlor, sir."
He went immediately to the parlor
above stairs, and there sat Polly in her
liest gown, "the sweetest looking creature," he was wont to say, "this side
of paradise." Polly rose, and his
amazement checked bis feet a moment;
then be advanced quickly and would
bave kissed ber, but sbe turned her
face away and stood looking down.
They were In a silence full of history.
Twice she tried to speak, but an odd
stillness followed the first word, giving
possibly the more adequate expression
to her thoughts.
"How came you here?" he whispered
"I—I have been trying to find you,"
said sbe at length.
He turned, looking from end to end
of the large room.   They were alone.
"Polly," he whispered, "I believe you
do love me."
For a little time she made no answer.
"No," sbe whispered, shaking her
head. "That is, I-I do not think I love
"Then why bave you come to find
"Because—because you did not come
to find me," she answered, glancing
down at the toe of ber pretty shoe.
"Dear Polly!" he said as he took her
hand in his. Gently she pulled it
"I—I cannot speak to you now," she
whispered. j
Then a long silence.  The low music
of a million tiny wings came floating
In at the window.   It seemed,  somehow. Ilk* a voice of tbe past, with min- j
utee, like the bees, hymning indistln- (
guiabahly.     Polly    and   Trove   were j
tbinklag of the same things.   "I can
doubt bim no more," sbe thought, "and
I  know—I  know tbat be loves  me."
They  co«ld  hear the  flutter of bird
wings beyond the window, and in tbe
stillness they got some understanding
of each  otber.   She turned  suddenly
and went to where be stood.
"Sidney," she said, "I am sorry. I
am sorry if I have hurt you."
She lifted one of bis bands and
pressed her red cheek upon it fondly.
In a moment be spoke.
"Long ago I knew that yon were
doubting me, but I couldn't help it,"
be said.
"It was that—that horrible secret,"
she whispered.
"1 had no right to your love," said
he, "until"—be hesitated for a little—
"until I could tell you tbe truth."
"You loved somebody else*" she
whispered, turning to blm. "Didn't
you now?   Tell me."
"No," said he calmly. "The fact lathe fact ls, I had learned tbat my
father was a thief."
"Your father!" ahe answered. "Do
you think I care wbat your father did?
Your honor and your love were enough
for me."
"I did not know," he whispered,
"and I should bave made my way to
you, but"— be paused again.
"But what?" she demanded impatiently.
"Well, it was only fair you should
bave a chance to meet other:, and I
thought you were ln love with Roberts."
"Roberts! He would have been glad
of my love, I can tell you that." She
looked up at him. "I have endured
much for you, Sidney Trove, and I cannot keep my secret any longer. He
says that Darrel ls now in prison for
your crime."
"And you believe him?" Trove whispered.
"Not that," she answered quickly,
"but you know I loved the dear oUJ
man. I cannot think him guilty any
more than I could think it of you, but
there's a deep mystery in it all. It has
made me wretched. Every one thinks
you know more than you have told."
"A beautiful mystery!" the young
man whispered. "He thought I should
be convicted. Who wouldn't?. I think
he loved me, so that he took the shame
and the suffering to save me."
"He would have died for you," she
answered, "but, Sidney, it was dreadful to let tbem take him away. Couldn't
you have done something?"
"Something, dear Polly! And I with
a foot in the grave?"
"Where did you go that nlgbt?"
"I do not know, but In the morning
I found myself In our great pasture
and was ill. Some Instinct led me
borne, and, as usual, I had gone across
lots." Then he told the story of thai
day and night and the illness that followed.
"I, too, was III," said Polly, "and 1
thought you were cruel not to come t«
me. When I began to go out of doors
tbey told me you were low with fever,
Tben I got ready to go to you and tb-l
tsrr day I saw you pass the door.  1
There snt PiiUy in her best aown.
thought surely yoa would come to site
me, but you went away."
Polly's lips were trembling, and she
covered ber eyes.
"I feared to be unwelcome," said be.
"You and every one, except my mother, were determined tbat I should marry Roberts," Polly went on. "He has
been urgent, but you, Sidney, you
wouldn't bave me. You have done everything you could to help him. Now
I've found you, and I'm going to tell
you all, and you've got to listen to me.
He has proof, he says, that you are
guilty of another crime, and—and be
says you are now a fugitive trying to
escape arrest."
A little silence followed, In which
Trove was thinking of the Hope letters and of Roberts' claim tbat he waa
engaged to Polly.
"You have been wrapped la mysteries long enough. I shall not let yon
go until you explain," she continued.
"There's no mystery about this," jald
Trove calmly. "Roberts Is a rascal,
and that's the reason I'm here."
She turned quickly, with a look of
"I mean it He knows I am guilty
of no crime, but be does know that I
am looking for Louis Leblanc, and be
has fooled me with lying letters to
keep me out of tbe way and win you

A serious look came Into Polly's eyes.
"You are looking for Louis Leblanc,"
she whispered.
"Yes. It is the first move in a plan
to free Darrel, for I am sure tbat
Leblanc committed the crime. I shall
know soon after I meet him."
"If be should have a certain mark
on the beck of bis left band and were
to satisfy me in two other eetails I'd
give my life to one purpose—that of
making him confess. God help me! I
cannot find the man. But I shall net
give up.   I shall see the governor."
Turning ber face away and looking
out of the window she felt for bis
hand. Then she pressed it fondly.
That was the giving of all sacred
things forever, and he knew It.
"I do love you, Polly," said Trove at
length. "I've answered your queries,
all of them, and now it's my turn. If
,we were at Robin's Inn I should put
my arms about you and I should not
let you go until—until you had promised to be my wife."
"And I should not promise for at
least an hour," said she, smiling, as she
turned, her dark eyes full of their new
discovery.  "Let us eo home."
"I'm *8oln-f tb be Imperative," aaid
he, "and you must answer before I will
let you go"—
"Dear Sidney," said sbe, "let's wait
until we reach home. It's too bad to
spoil lt here. But"— she whispered,
looking about the room, "you may kiss
me once now."
"I must get work somewhere. My
money is gone," said Trove.
"Money!" said she, opening her purse.
"I'm a Lady Bountiful.   Think of IL
I've $200 here.  Didn't you know Riley
Brooke canceled the mortgage? Mother
had saved this money for a payment."
"Canceled the mortgage!" said Trove.
"Yes,  the dear  old  tinker repaired
him, and now he's a new man.   I'll
give you a job, Sidney."
"What to do?"
"Go and see the governor, and then—
and then you are to report to me at
Robin's Inn. Mind you, there's to be
no delay, and I'll pay you. Let's see,
I'll pay you a hundred dollars."
Trove began to laugh.
"I shall stay tonight witb a cousin
at Burlington. Oh, there's one more
thing—you're to get a new suit of
clothes at Albany, and, remember, it
must be very grand."
It was near train time, ahd they left
tbe Inn.
"I'm going to tell you everything,"
said she as they were on their way to
the depot. "The day after tomorrow I
am to see that dreadful Roberts. I'm

Not an hour before then Roberts bad
passed them on, his way to Boston.

Freo and Easy Manners In Early Illinois Trials.
Most of the early Illinois courthouses were log built but ln some districts, says the author of "Lincoln, the
Lawyer," the sessions were held in the
barrooms of taverns, and the absence
of all formality In tbe proceedings is
best Illustrated by tbe fact that In the
circuit court of Washington county,
held hy Judge John Reynolds, the sheriff usually heralded his honor by singing out "Come ln. boys! Our John Is
a-goln' to hold court!" to which cordial
invitation those having business wltb
the law responded.
Another sheriff in Union county made
laudable efforts to meet the requirements of the occasion hy shouting nut
this singular announcement: "Oh, yes!
Oh. yes! Oh, yes! The honorable judge
ls now opened!"
In one case a judge who desired to
display his learning instructed the jury
very fully, laying down the law with
authority, but the jurors, after deliberating some hours, found themselves
unable to agree. Finally the foreman
rose and asked for additional Instructions.
"Judge, this 'ere is the difficulty," he
explained. "The jury want to know lf
that thar what you told us was r'al'y
the law. or on'v list your notion."

Much Interest Being Taken In Next
August's  Artillery  Contest.
Arrangements have been completed
for an interesting competition during
the first week of August between British Royal Garrison Artillery Volunteers and the Artillery Militia of 'he
Dominion of Canada. On or about
July 12, a detachment, consisting of
six officers and some thirty non-commissioned officers and gunners, will
sail for Montreal, under the command
of Col. Sydney Wishart. 1st City of
London Artillery. Col. the Earl ->f
Stradbroke, V. D., chairman at the
council of the National Artillery *is-
sociation, will accompany the detachment. Field artillery competitions will
be held in Ontario, and garrison competitions in the forts nt Halifax, N S.
It is well on toward 30 years since
a team of volunteer artillery visited
Canada, the first and only previfcus
occasion on which Buch a visit was
made being in 1884. The Canadians
returned the comnliment in 1897, when
a specially selected dptachment nl
Canadian artillery, under the command of Col Minden Cole, took part
in the National Artillery Association
meetine nt 8hoebtiryness. and distinguished itself by winning the Queen's
Cup in the group-firing competition.
Recently the Dominion Artillery Association renewed its invitation, and
the National Artillery Association
found itself, in « nosifinn to accept it.
The selection of Col. Wishart to command the detachment is one that will
be entirely acceptable *o British volunteer artillerymen. He is recognized as a thorouehly competent ganner.
nnd possesses the tact and other auali-
ties necessary to mnke the visit a
complete success. The presence of
Lord Strndbroke. who takes the keenest possible interest in artillery work,
will be of immense service, and the
volunteer gunners mnv rest assured
thnt they will be worthily represented during the nppronchine visit to
Canada. Tt mny be mentioned, ns

a practical kind, thnt his own reei-

Reasons Why Ancient Fiddles Ara Better Than New.
Fabulous prices are sometimes paid
for old violins, and many an enthusiastic musician would part with bis
last dollar to possess one of the masterpieces of Stradlvurius or Guarueri-
us or another of the famous makers of
a century or two ago.
The questioned superiority of these
old und often battered instruments has
beeu variously ascribed to the peculiar
quullty of the varnish used In their
construction, to the elasticity of the
wood employed and to the ripening and
Improving effects of age and loug use.
Of late years, however, much credence has been given the suggestion
of an eminent authority that the real
cause of the superiority of the old Instruments Is due to a peculiar warping of the wood to a higher arch, a
buckling caused by the position of the
"F" holes nnd sound post.
It might at flrst thought be supposed that the same effect could be produced by giving an equal arching to a
new Instrument, but the effect. If attained, Is not permanent, because with
age the arching increases until too
great a degree of rigidity ls the result
"Plugging" a Hotel Guest.

"Plugged him? Who? What for?
Where did you hit him?" quickly asked
a frleud who was Btandlng by.
"Didn't hit him anywhere. Just
plugged the keyhole of his door. Never hear of plugging before? When we
aave a guest whom we suspect Is getting ready to leave without settling or
whose credit Is exhausted and fails to-
settle up. we Just wait till he leaves
his room and plug the keyhole In his
door. Then be bus to settle up or leave
his baggage. The plug fits over tbe

When Doctors' Treatment Failed this Severe
Case was Entirely Cured by
Doctors failed to cure Mr. De Cour-
cey because they were satisfied to
treat the stomach instead of getting
at the cause of trouble in the liver
and  bowels.
The most complicated and deep-
seated digestive troubles yield to
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, because of their direct and combined
action on the liver, kidneys and
howels. We are continually receiving such letters as the following in
regard to the failure of mere stomach  treatment:
Mr. Patrick De Courcey, Midgell,
lot 40, P.E.I., writes: 'For some
time I had stomach trouble, and was
scarcely able to do anything at all.
1 was treated by doctors, but they
■did not seem to do me anv good. A
friend advised me to trv Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills, and I did so, to
verv great advantage, for mv old
trouble hns disappeared, and, though
past middle age. T feel young and
Tieartv again. I hnve great faith in
Dr.  Chase's medicine."
Another interesting case of liver
derangements and stomach troubles
is that described in this letter:
Mrs. James Monteith, Saurin, Simcoe county, Ont., writes: "I have
used Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
for liver complaint, biliousness and
terrible sick headaches, and have
found that they are more effective
than any treatment I ever tried.
They cleanse the system thoroughly,
remove the cause of pains and aches,
and make you feel fresh and strong
again. Dr. Chase'a Kidney-Liver
Pills are also excellent for stomach
By means of their direct and specific action on the liver—causing a
healthful flow of bile—they regulate
and enliven the action of the bowels
and ensure good digestion in the intestines. At the same time they
stimulate the kidneys in their work
of  filtering  poisonR  from  the  blood.
