TROVE sat iu council with Mary
and   Tberon   Allen.    He   was
now in debt to the doctor. He
needed money also for clothing and boots and an enterprise all had
been discussing.
"I'll give you $300 for the mare,"
said Allen.
Trove sat In thoughtful silence, and
presently Allen went out of doors.
The woman got her savings and
brought them to her son.
"There Is $23, an' it may help you,"
she whispered.
"No, mother, I can't take it," said the
young man. "I owe you more now than
I can ever pay. I shall have to sell the
mare. It's a great trial to me, but—
but honor ls better than horses."
"Well, I've a surprise for you," said
she, bringing a roll of cloth from the
bedroom. "Those two old maids spun
the wool, and I wove it, and, see, it's
all been ftllled."
"You're as good as gold, mother, and
so are they. It's grand to wear in the
country, but I'm going away and ought
to have an extra good suit. I'd like to
look as fine as any of the village boys,
and tbey don't wear homespun. But
I'll have plenty of use for lt"
Next day he walked to Jericho Mills
and paid tbe doctor. He went on to
Milldam, buying there a handsome new
outfit of clothing. Then be called to
see the president of the bank—that one
which had set the dogs of the law on
"You know I put $3,000 In the banlj
of Hillsborough," said Trove when he
sat facing the official. "I took ths
money there, believing It to be mine,
If, however, it Is yours, I wish to turn
it over to you."
"It Is not our money," said the president "That bundle was sent here, and
we Investigated every bill—a great
task, for there were some 300 of tbem.
Many are old bills and two the issue
of banks gone out of business. It's all
a very curious problem. They would
not have received this money, but they
knew of the robbery and suspected you
at once. Now we believe absolutely In
your honor."
"I shall put that beyond all question." said Trove, rising.
He took tbe cars to Hillsborough.
There he went to tbe Sign of the Dial
and built a fire ln its old stove. The
clocks were now hushed. He found
those Darrel had written of and ije-
livered tbem. Returning, he began to
wind the cherished clocks of the tinker
—old ones he bad gathered here and
there ln his wandering—and to start
tbelr pendulums. One of them, a call
clock in the corner with a calendar
dial, had this legend on the inner sfele
of its door:
Halted In memory of a good man.
Its hands pointing to the moment of hie
death, •
Ita voice bulbed in his honor.
Trove sbut tbe door of the old clock
and hurried to the public attorney's
ofiice, where he got the address of Le-'
blanc.   He met many who shook his !
band warmly and gave him a pleasant
word.   He was ln great fear of meeting  Polly   and   thought  of   what  be j
should do and say if he came face to '
face with her.   Among others he met
tbe school principal.
"Coming back to work?' the latter
"No. sir.  I've mot to earn money."'
"We need another teacher, and 111
recommend you."
"I'm much obliged, bnt I couldn't
come before tbe fall term,*' said Trove.
"I'll try to keep the place for you,"
said bis friend as tbey parted.
Trove came slowly down the street,
thinking bow nappy he could be now lf
Darrel were free and Polly had only
trusted him. Near the Sign of the
Dial he met Thurston Tilly.
"Back again?" Trove Inquired.
"Back again.   Boss gi'n up farmin'."
"Did he make his fortune?"
"No; he had one give to him."
"Come and tell me about it"
Tilly followed Trove up the okl stairway Into the little shop.
"Beg yer pardon," said Thurst, turning, "are you armed?"
"No," said Trove, smiling.
"A man shot me once when I wan't
doln' nothln' but tryln' t' tell a story,
an' I don't take uo chances. Do you
remember my bona tellin' that night ln
the woods bow he lost his money ln the
fire o' '35?"
"Waal, I guess It had suthln' t' do
with that One day tbe boss nn' me
was out In the dooryard an' a stranger
come along. 'You're John Thompson,'
says he to the boss. 'An' you're So-an'-
HiCjas* the brss.   I don't __■_-te'iv re-
nferiiber tl_e name he glve."'Tilly stopped to think.
"Can you describe bim?" Trove Inquired.
"He was a big man, with white
whiskers an' hair, an' he wore light
breeches an' a short, blue coat."
"Again the friend of Darrel," Trove
"Did you tell the tinker about your
boss the night we were all at Robin's
Inn last summer?"
"I told him the whole story, an' be
pumped me dry. I'd answer him an'
he'd holler 'Very well,' an' shoot an-
■ other question at me."
"Well, Thurst, go on with your
"Couldn't tell ye just what happened. They went off Int' the house. Nex'
day the boss toi' me he wa'n't no longer
a poor man an' was goin't' sell his farm
an' leave for Californy. In a tavern
near where we lived the stranger died
sudden that night, an' the funeral was
at our house, an' he was buried there
in Iowy."
Trove walked to the bench and stood
a moment looking out of the window.
"Strange!" said he, returning presently, with tearful eyes. "Do you remember the date?"
" 'Twas a Friday, 'bout tbe middle o'
Trove turned, looking up at the
brazen dial of the tall clock. It indicated 4:30 in the morning of Sept. 19.
"Were there any with him when he

The Ml clock indicated 4:30.
"Tes; the taverh keeper; It was somu
kind of a stroke, they told me."
"And your boss—did he go to California?" Trove asked.
"He sold the farm an' went to CaU-
forny. I worked there awhile, but the
boss an' me couldn't agree, an' so I
pnlied up an' trotted fer home."
"To what part of California did
Thompson go?"
"Hadn't no Idee where he would stick
his stakes. He was goin' Int' the gold
Trove sat busy with his own thoughts
while Thurston Tilly, warming to new
confidence, boiled over with enthusiasm
for the far west. A school friend of the
boy came by and by, whereupon Tilly
whistled and hurried away.
"Did you know," said the newcomer
when Trove and he were alone, "that
Roberts, the man who tried to send you
up, ls a young lawyer and ls going to
settle here? He and Polly are engaged."
"So he gave me to understand."
"Well, If she loves h)m and he's a
good fellow, I've no right to eomplain."
"I don't believe that he's a good fellow," said the other.
"Why do you say that?"
"Well, a detective ia—Is"—
"A necessary evil?" Trove suggested.
"Jnst tbat," said theother. "He must
pretend to be what he Isn't snd—well,
a gentleman is not apt to sell himself
for that purpose. Now. he's trying to
convince people that you knew as
much about the crime as Darrel. In
my opinion he isn't honest. Good looks
and fine raiment are all there is to that
fellow, take my word for lt."
"You're incllued to judge him harshly," snid Trove. "But I'm worried, for
I fear he's unworthy of her, and—and
I must leave town tomorrow."
"Shall you go to see her?"
"No; not until I know more about
blm. I have friends here, and they
will give hor good counsel. Soon
they'll know what kind of a mar. he
Is, and, If necessary, they'll warn her..
I'm beset with trouble, but, thank
Cod. I know which wny to turn."
EXT morning Trove was on
bis way to Quebec — a long,
hard journey in the winter
time those days. Leblanc had
moved again, so they told bim in Quebec; this time to Plattsburg, in Clinton county, N. Y. There, however,
Trove was unable to find tbe Frenchman. A week of patient Inquiry; then
leaving promises of reward for'information, be came away. lie hud yet another object of his travels—the prison
at Daniieniora—and came there of a
Sunday morning late in February. Its
towers were bathed in sunlight; Its
shadow lay dark upon tbe snow. He
shivered in the gloom of this shadow-
as he went up a driveway and rang a
bell. The warden received him kindly.
"I wish to see Roderick Darrel—be is
my friend," said Trove as he gave the
warden a letter.
"Come with me," said the official
presently. "He is talking to the men."
They passed through gloomy corridors to tlie chapel door. Trove halted
to compose himself, for uow he eould
bear the voice of Barrel.
"Let me stand here awhile; I cannot go in now," he whispered.
The voice stopped. There was a moment of deep silence. Then a stir in
the audience—a stir of bauds and handkerchiefs. Trove entered; the chaplain
was now reading a hymn. Darrel sat
behind him on a raised platform, the
silken spray upon his brows, long and
white as snow, his face thoughtful and
serious. The reading over, be came
and sat among the men, singing as
tbey sang. The benediction, a stir of
feet, and the prisoners, began to press
about him, some kissing his hands. He
gave each a kindly greeting. It was
like tbe night of the party on Cedar
hill. A moment more, and tbe crowd
was filing away, some looking back
curiously at Trove, who stood, his arms
about the old man.
"Courage, boy!" the latter was saying. "I know It. cuts thee like a sword,
an' would to God I could bave spared
thee even this. Look! In yon high
window I can see the sunlight, an', believe me, there is not a creature it
shines upon so happy as I. God love
thee, boy; God tmre thee!"
He put his cheek upon that of the
boy and stroked his hair gently. Then
a little time of silence, and the storm
bad passed.
"A fine, fine lad ye are," said Darrel, looking proudly at the young man,
who stood now quite composed. "Let
me take thy band. Aye, 'tis a mighty
arm ye have, an' some day, some day,
it will shake the towers."
"Y'ou will both dine with me ln my
quarters at 1," said the warden.
Trove turned with a look of surprise.
"Thank ye, sor.   An' mind ye make
room for Wit an' Happiness," said the
"Bring them along—they're always
welcome at my table," the warden answered, with a laugh.
"Know ye not they're In prison now
for keeping bad company?" said Darrel as he turned. "At 1, boy," he added, shaking the boy's hand. "Ah, then,
good cheer an' many a often-y jest"
Darrel left the room, waving his
hand. Trove and the warden made
their way to the prison ofllce.
"A wonderful man!" said the latter
as they went "We love and respect
bim and give bim all the liberty we
can. For a long time he bas been nursing In the hospital, and wben I see
that he is overworking I bring him to
my office and set him at easy jebs."
Darrel came presently, and they went
to dianer. The tinker bowed politely to
the warden's wife and led her to the
"Good friends," said be as they were
sitting down, "there is an hour that ls
short o* minutes an' yet holds a week
o' pleasure. Who can tell me which
hour it is?"
"I never guessed a riddle," said ths
"Marry, dear madam, 'tis the hour
o' thy hospitality," said tbe old man.
"When you are in it," she answered
with good humor.
"Fellow travelers on the road to
heaven," said Darrel, raising his glass,
"St Peter is fond of a smiling face."
"And wben you see him you'll make
a Jest," were the words of the warden,
"-•or I believe he is a lover o" good
company," said Darrel.
So the dinner went on, ethers talking
only to encourage the tongue of Darrel. Trove, well as he knew the old
man, had been surprised by his fortitude. Far from being broken, his spirit waa happy, masterful, triumphant
Darrel and Trove went away with
the warden, who bade them sit awhile
in his office. Tinker and young man
were there talking until the day was
gone. The warden sat opart, reading.
Now and again they whispered earnestly, as If they were not agreed, Darrel shaking his forefinger and his bead.
Trove came away as tbe dark fell, a
sad and thoughtful look upon him.

When Done With Ordinary Camera
They Show as Lines, Not Specks.
It is an easy matter merely to photograph stars. The trouble Is to picture tbem ns points and not as streaks.
tor as tlie earth rotates !t carries Uie
photographic apparatus with it. and
tbe light from the star makes a Hue,
tvliile the astronomer wauts a point.
He must therefore devise a machine
that will counteract the movement of
tlie earth and so keep the light steadily
In the same place ou tbe plate. Elaborate clockwork must turn the lens
backward to keep It on the star anil at
tlie same rate as that at which tbe
Mirth moves forward.
An astronomer at tlie Yerkes observatory at Williams Bay, Wis., Is quoted
in St. Nicholas as saying that "many
of the most important results of astronomy have been derived from tlie
use of an ordinary camera. On a clear
ulgbt point one of these toward the
north pole, and It will be found after
an exposure of one or two hours that
the stars which lie near the pole have
jrawn nrcs of circles upon tbe plate.
This Is due to the fact that the earth
is rotating upon its axis at such a rate
as to cause every star In the sky to
appear to travel through a complete
circle once In twenty-four hours.
The mere act of photographing Is not
much more difficult than a short exposure out of the window of a moving
car.   Any one can try lt
Let the exposure be for at least five
minutes lf the camera Is pointed overhead and for at least one hour If directed toward the pole star. The camera may be left out all night If pointed
at the pole, but must be taken In just
before daylight. The longer the exposure the longer the star "scratches."
Develop the plnte as long as possible.
Skill and Activity of the Expert River-
man  In Action.
First and foremost your true river-
man can ride a log. This does not mean
merely that he Is able to stand upright
or to jump from one to another without splashing ln, though even that is
no mean feat as a trial will convince
you. That is the kindergarten of it
The saw log In the water ls not only
his object of labor, but his means of
transportation. Your true riverman ou
drive seldom steps on land except to
eat and sleep.
A journey down stream ls to him an
affair of great simplicity. He pushes
into tbe current a stick of timber,
jumps lightly atop it, leans against his
peavy and floats away as graceful and
motionless as a Grecian statue. When
his unstable craft overtakes other logs
he deserts it runs forward as far as be
cun, the logs bobbing and awash behind bis spring, and so continues on
another timber. Jack Boyd once for a
bet rode for twelve miles down Grand
river on a log he could carry to tho
stream's bank across his shoulders
Fully half the time his feet were submerged to the ankles.
Nor does quick water always cause
your expert riverman to disembark.
Using bis peavy as a balancing pole
and treading with squirrel-like quickness as his footing rolls, he will run
rapids of considerable force and volume. When the tall of a drive passes
through the chute of a dam there are
always half a dozen or so of tbe rear
men who out nf sheer bravado will run
through standing upright like circus
riders and yelling like fiends.—Stewart
Edward White ln Outing Magazine.
Marriage Expenses.
Careful observation, extending over a
period of forty-two years and supplemented by thousands of Interviews
with storekeepers, hairdressers, modistes, milliners, collectors and others,
leads us to believe that the average
cost of a bride's trousseau in this country—taking the rich with the poor—is
the sum of $60.38. Equally careful observation convinces us tbat the average cost of a bridegroom's sartorial
outfit ls slightly less thau one-third
that amount or, to be exact $22.01.
Thus we have $88.39 as the cost of the
garment- worn by bride snd bridegroom at tbe average wedding and In
the course of the average honeymoon.
Long Lived Razors.
"How long have you had this razor?"
asked the barber.
"A dozen years."
"Well" said he. "that is not bad.
; It's no record, though. Lots of my customers.have razors that they've owned
twenty and twenfy-flve years and used
too. Why, one old man getsr-'me to
{hone every tdree months a razor he

The rehearsal for bioscope purposes

The rehearsal was arranged bv th»

won'd prove an excellent show. Accordingly a small party journeyed t»

The Precious Stones of Australia.
Rough diamonds have been found
lately in Queensland, one purchased
weighing four and one-half carats,
while many others weighing from one
to five carats have been sold. Diamonds so far found in the State have
not been of sufficient value to cause
excitement, and this, together with
the fact that European and American
gem merchants have adjudged then
as inferior quality, has discouraged
exploration. Sapphires have been
found in various places, many of the
yellow and green being equal to any
produced elsewhere. Recently $1,250
was refused for a rough yellow sapphire, and a large blue one, with a
yellow centre, weighing two and one-
half ounces, brought $2,500. The true
rubies have been found of good color,
but are small. Hyacinth zircons
weighing twenty-four carats are, well
known. Zircons, sapphires, topaz,
tourmaline and other gems may be
picked out of ballast along the railway lines. Olivine is fairly common.
The pearl is the best known of Australian gens, and for many years
•thousands of dollars* worth have been •
secured in Queensland. The oyster
fisheries of Thursday Island have
been the chief source of supply, bnt
pearls ore found all along the Queensland coast. The opal is pre-eminently
the Queensland gem and is found over
the entire western district of the

According to Dr. Uobsrt. Hutchinson
of London, If at any time meat Is not
averMable, bread, sugar and eggs will
make "a very respectable support for
the body." Sugar ls an exceedingly
valuable article of food as a source of
energy, the unfortunate thing about It
being that It contains no nitrogenous
matter. Bread, however, does contain
some; hence it balances up well when
combined wltb sugar. In times of
scarcity of food bread and molasses is
not a half bad diet—at least It can be
relied on to keep the body up to a fan-
state of efflclencv.

one sane man in the United Kingdom who would favor an attack on
Germany, and that he certainly did
not believe that Germany dreamt of
attacking England. What harm could
Germany do to England, who pos-
Bes=«>d nnd would retain the supremacy of the sea? If Germany built
more ancl more ships, England would
do the same, and as she was richei

Dr.   Williams'   Pink    Pills   Cured    a
Severe Case  of Anaemia and
Anaemia—poor, watery blood—is
the cause of most of the misery
whicli afflicts mankind. The housewife especially falls an easy prey to
it. The long hours and close confinement necessary in performing her
household duties sap her strength.
She becomes run down and often suffers extreme misery. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills are the housewife's friend.
They make new blood—lots of it—
ancl pure blood banishes all women's
ailments. Mrs. E. St. Germain, wife
of a well known farmer of St. John
des Chaillons, Que., found new
strength through Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. She says: "A year ago I was
extremely weak. I could not attend
tc my work. I suffered from dizzy
spells; my head ached; my blood was
poor; I had a bad cough and the
doctors feared I was going into consumption. I followed their treatment for some time but without relief. I grew discouraged and finally
gave it up in despair. I was strongly advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, so procured six boxes. Before
they were all gone I felt relief. The
headaches nnd dizziness became less
frequent and I felt a little stronger.
I continued the pills for a couple of
months, at the end of which time I
had gained in weight, the pains had
left me, my appetite was good and I
felt as strong and well as ever I did.
I cannot say too much in favor of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for I certainly owe my good health to them."
The woman in the house, the man
in the ollice, the boy or girl in the
school will always find a friend in
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These pills
uctual'y make new, rich, red blood
and good blood banishes rheumatism, general debility, kidney troubles
and those aches and pains caused by
overwork or overstudy; good blood
builds up the tired, unstrung nerves
and makes pale, thin cheeks rosy and
healthy. The pills are sold at 50
cents a £>ox or six boxes for $2.50

King Edward's Birth.
The commotion respecting the birth
of a royal baby in Spain recalls an incident in connection with the appear-
ane in this world of the present King
of England. Among the notabilities
at Buckingham Palace awaiting the
auspicious event was the great Duke
of Wellington, the hero of Waterloo,
then over 70 years of age. In due
course;, the nurse came into the reception-room and announced the birth,
"Is it a boy?" asked the veteran duke.
"It is a boy Prince, your grace," answered the dame in a somewhat offended tone. Some months later,
when asked by a lady how the youngster was getting on, the duke replied:
"Well, madam, very well, if I am
any judge. I am told that all healthy
babies kick hard and cry loudly, and
I can personally testify that His Royal
Highness is a very healthy baby."

Now  Wholly  Dead.
This feeling had existed for many
j ears. bi«t I should say it was now
who'> dead. Imperial Federation
has had its day, and I, for one, was
for some years, a believer in the system of a federated Empire resembling
the United States of America. But
the tiaiff difficulties, the existence of
the House of Lords, the necessities
of paving the way, first of ail. ip
Great Britain, by altering the constitution so as to permit of Home Rule
all round, have convinced me that a
Federal Parliament for the Empire is.
in this generation at least, out. of the
ip.estion. The present relations between the self-governing colonies and
Great Britain are to my mind very
satisfactory. The colonies within their
borders do as they like. Great Britain pays practically for the defence
of the Empire and provides and pays
for the Consular and diplomatic service in all par— of the world.
Adds to Prestige.
The colonies get defended for nothing; but, on the other hand, Great
Britain would, so far as the self-governing colonies are concerned, bo
obliged to maintain the snme fleets
and army if these colonies were independent, so that the Belf-goverriing
colonies really cost Great Britain
nothing to defend. The 'possession'
of colonies adds to Britain's prestige
in the eyes of the world, but the fact
that they 'belong' to Britain does
not add much to the dignity of the
colonial status. To sum up, the present position is more to the advantage
of Britain than it is to Canada or
Australia and as it will shortly be,
to South  Africa.
"It is not to be supposed that the
great colonies will long be content
with the position of colonies, and of
the tliree alternatives it seems to me
that, when a change does come, the
most dignified and noble position will
be to assume the full status of manhood. Should that time come, I
hope the change will be accompanied
by a defensive alliance. In the meantime Canada at any rate is doing what
she can to provide for her own defence. The building of three great
trans-continental railways, the garrisoning of Halifax and Esquimau, and
the increase both in numbers and
efficiency of the militia are satisfactory evidence of the growing feeling
in Canada of her own strength. The
character of the Canadian people is
changing from colonial to national,

at later dato will be returned.
Do you'realize that investment of a hundred or a thousand will grow rapidly into hundreds and thousands and millions of dollars? The ovor-
oouservative and skeptical will smile—they will laugh sit. these predictions, some will even consider this a joke—but remember COBALT, if yuu | lease,
two or three years ago? Thon'it was a "vision," it was a "dreaihj" ''aflash-iii'thepau,'-' ''a bubble," somebody was "crazy"; but now il is different.
Those crassy me'i are now classed among the smartest and keenest business men of tbe day. The actual value of a fow mines nre worth at tho present
dute mote than ouo hundred millions of dollars.   These aro facts.
In presenting this investment for
subscription we appeal to the
good judgment of sensible persons
as to its merit.
It embodies, we believe, a correct method for developing and
establishing successful and paying
mining enterprises.
We desire to conduct, first of all,
a   successful   Mine   Development.
We intend  this to be done in a
way that will  be absolutely fair
aud honest, and bring the largest
J profit possible  to  those  who  co-
i operate witb  us.
■      We, therefore, desire this pro-
f   position' to be well understood by
SI investors. Wo wish it to be known
ij just how we propose to develop,
establish   and    operate    dividend
j$ paying Alining Companies by and
$  through this investment.
THE PLAN.—The plan involved
in this proposition is that of uniting or consolidating   tho   investments of a limited number of per-
.i sons into one sum, and under one
j management, to be used in aeauir-
'.s ing and   developing Milling   pro-
_j parties in this Wonderful region.
''jj      THE PRINCIPLE   involved   in
5 this investment we-believe,- is otx*-"-
*j of absolute fairness to all Interest-
D ed..    Tbo    "promotion"   interest"
j common to all mining, companies,
j n«u which Is the groat unfair feature  to  Investors' who  jfut  their

i'developed—doea.. not exist In this

j for by the investors.

aro the most iu favor, Serge will be

.Setter to Guard Against Such Emei'tp-cy by Keeping
Vitality at High-Water Mark by the use of
Dr. Chase's Werve Food.
Good henlth is the capital of persons who earn their livelihood with
brain and muscle.
In these days of strenuous life and
keen competition there is no place
for tired brains and weak bodies.
Success is for the strong and alert
■—for those whose blood is rich and
■whose nerve cells are filled with vi-
£or and energy.
It is not pleasant to contemplate
"what might happen with failing
l.ealth and for this reason it is well
to heed the first syrhptonis of nervous
•exhaustion, such as brain fag, head-
•ttche, nervous dyspepia, sleepless-
■—ess, failure of memory and loss of
tjiower   to   concentrate   the   mind.
While Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has
succeeded in curing many cases of
partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia,
salid tbe most severe forms of nervous prostration and exhaustion, it
is not well to delay treatment until
these  stubborn    and  dangerous  dis
eases set  in.
At the slightest indication of waning nerve force begin the use of Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food, ancl with a few-
weeks' treatment you will be able to
restore the vitality ot the body to
high-wafer mark, remove the cause
of nervous disorders, ancl prevent
serious results.
Miss Mary Leitch, Coulson, Simcoe County, Out., writes: "When I
began the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food my nervous system was all run
down, and I suffered terribly with
nervous headache- and sleeplessness.
Sometimes I couid not sleep for three

"Votes For Women"  Received by «n
Audience With Enthusiasm.
"Votes for Women," a new play by
Miss Elizabeth Robins, who terms il
a dramatic tract, was received with
thunderous applause at the Court
Theatre, London, recently. The story
briefly told is thai of a beautiful young
suffragist wronged in earlier days by
a rising politician. She finds him engaged to a nree, well brought up girl,
and as compensation for her personal
.wrong gets him to espouse the cause
of the suffragists by resigning his seal
in the Cabinet.
The feature of the production is the
marvelous reproduction of an open
air meeting in Trafalgar Square in
support of women's suffrage. The Tribune says: "Looked upon as a work
of art, 'Vote for Women' is clevei
throughout, brilliant at times and os
the whole disappointing. Miss Wynne:
Matthison brings the charm of impersonality and admirable elocutionary art to the interpretation of t__|
character of the heroine."
Marvel   of   Realism.
The Morning Post says of the second act, in which the Trafalgai
Square meeting is reproduced: "It it
a marvel of realism. It may, however,
prove a good deal more than that,
It may advance the cause of femalfl
suffrage more than any number ol
meetings in Trafalgar Square could
do. As the play. 'Votes for Women,'
is oi little value as a preachment, tnt

social and political life such as^ n«
play has had in this generation.

The Daily Mail savs: "Miss Robins

of her championship she even sacrificed
that precious thing, her art. Vote,

very fine play. It is full of beautiful
writing and the sense of the theatr*

Fenian's Romance.
Fenian excitement in the enriy
eighties is recalled by the reappearance in Roscommon of a man who
mysteriously disappeared 20 years
His name is Farrell, and lie was
known locally as "Wliaer." He was
understood to be closely identified
with the Fenian Brotherhood, and to
have come under the suspicion of the
leaders of the movement. In all probability he received a warning, for he
disappeared suddenly, leaving his wife
and children behind him. Nothing
more had been heard of him tint-
last week; but he has now returned
to Roscommon a weathy man.

although FarreU has been identified

THERE ts a tiny "hit" of a town
nt the end- of a "bit" of a railroad up ln Scotland, where, some
forty-odd years ago, a tiny bit of a lad
was born.
His father was a tall, stooped-over
man, who wore hobnailed shoes and
loved to work in his garden. His mother
was a sweet-faced, fragile woman,
whom he loved better than anybody
else on earth.
Beautiful woods surrounded the village, and mountains and valleys filled
with "braes" rushing down to the distant sea.
The boy grew up into a slender, rather diffident young man, and went across
the border to an English metropolis,
where he secured a modest'position on
a newspaper.
After a few years of newspaper work
he began to attempt story writing. His
first book was a dead failure. The title,
curiously enough, was "Better Dead."
Then his thoughts turned to the little
home village of Kirriemuir, and he said
to himself. "Well, I know my own home
Well enough to describe it, anyhow, so
I think I'll try my hand at that."
So he did, and about the only change
ne made was in the name of the town,
to which he gave the name of Thrums.
The resulting story, short and simple,
but written with a tender touch, was
sent to a publisher. Much to the young
author's surprise, it was accepted, and
the publisher wrote: "Tell some more
stories about Thrums."
So, at the age of 23, the young man
—James Matthews Barrie—found himself on the ladder of success! And
after that all he had to do was to
keep on writing. Everybody looked
eagerly forward to his stories and
books, and every succeeding one made
him more famous and more prosperous, until today he Is said to be earning the largest annual Income from
his writings of all the book writers
of the day.
And this is the man who wrote "Peter
Pan," the most popular play ever written for children, which has also been
published ln a beautiful storybook,
Illustrated by a fine English artist.
Two of the Illustrations are reproduced on this page.
This story—taking Its boy and girl
readers into the charming Kensington
Gardens of London, with their Boardwalk and animal cemetery and fairies
and all—will ever be a favorite one tn

Umbrellas and Sneezes
IT IS a popular error to suppose that
John Hanway Invented the umbrella,  which  was  no novelty  even  to
A bas-relief in the British Museum
shows us that Assyrian monarch enjoy-'
ing the advantages of both coach and
umbrella as he moves at the head of his
army. But long before his day, under
the dim dynasties of Young China, the
umbrella was in high honor.
A Chinese legend attributes the invention to the wife of Lou-pan, a celebrated
carpenter of antiquity. "Sir," said this
wonderful lady to her husband, "you
may make with extreme cleverness
houses for men; but It is impossible to
make them move, while the object 1 am
framing for their private use can be
carried to any distance, beyond even a
thousand leagues." And Lou-pan, stupe-
fled by his wife's genius, then saw the
unfolding of the flrst parasol.
The umbrella and the sunshade are
essentially the same. An umbrella is
merely a shade. As such ft haunts the
mysteries, the processions, and the gorgeous ceremonials of the East back into
the morning mists of history.
In India it was always an emblem of
majesty. The Mahratta Princes who
reigned at Poona and Sattara held the
title of "Lord of the Umbrella."    .
But so hard is it to keep track of an
umbrella that many a mere American
would forego being a Mahratta Prince
if he could be lord of his umbrella for
three   months   together.
Wouldn't you?
It ls a very curious thing that all over
the world there exists the same superstition In regard to the apparently trivial matter of sneezing.
In nearly every language under the
sun there ts some equivalent of "God
bless you!" with which our oldest inhabitants In the country will salute the
person who sneezes. To this salutation of France Is added sometimes the
phrase, "nnd preserve you from the
fate of Tycho Brahe." who Is believed
to have got rid of a "death of cold" by
a single sneeze—which killed him.
In England the regular saying Is:
"Once for a wish, twice for a kiss, three
times for a letter, and four times for a
disappointment." In Italy the salutation is simply "Feliclta!" or "May you
be fortunate!" In India lt is customary
when one sneezes to say, "May you
live!" and the reply runs, "Long life to
In ancient times the Romans, holding
the idea that sneezing between noon and
midnight was a good omen, believed
f.hat between midnight and neon it was
most unlucky, and if they should chance

A Trick That Seems
Impossible     ,
CAN you remove a man's waistcoat
without first causing him to re.
move his  coat?
This Is the way to do it: Ask him. In
the first place, to wear an easy-fitting
coat of some sort, say a lojse over»...t.
-Now, unbution his waistcoat, unfai-i.'i*
the buckle at the back, ancl nsk hlni to
hold his arms above his head, S.lit>
your hand ciown the back of the cu..t.
gra3p the bottom of the waistcoat i-i.il
pu.l It up rignt over the head of ia«*
Next, take the right-side bottom i-mi
of the front of ihe waistcoat and put it
Into the armhole of the coat at the,
shoulder, at the same time putting tno
hand up the sleeve and drawing do\. r.
in,   end.
This will release one armhole.    Next
draw  the  waistcoat  up  again,   put  to*.
same end into the left armhole. put t',<a
hand  up  the  left s.eeve and  draw Uuk
wnole of the waistcoat down.
A FAMOUS French painter had a
fixed rule that none of his pupils,
were to be allowed to smoke la
his studio.
One day, however, he came into the,
room and distinctly saw that one of
the pupils had a lighted cigarette lu
his fingers, which he was endeavoring.
ineffectually to conceal. With a style
of somewhat heavy banter the painter
went up to him.
"Thai is a curious kind of pencil you
have got there, my young friend," he
remarked.   "May I ask what you pro-
pose to draw with It?"
"Clouds," was the ready answer.
The Barber's Pole.
The origin of the custom of shaving
the face is lost ln antiquity. The Greeka
and Romans had public shaving p.acet.
in  connection with their baths.
In the fourteenth century the barber's
craft was recognized as a profession, being allied to surgery. The barbers were,
confined, as to surgery, to the letting of
blood and leeching and the extracting
of teeth, and the surgeons were prohibited from shaving the face.
'Ihe barber's sign was a striped pol»
as far back as 1660, the stripes around
the pole being symbols of the bandages
used in wrapping the arm or part from
which the blood was to be let.

Lady Baltimore Cake
I have had ao many helpful Ideas from
your Exchange that I feel constrained to
make some return, so I am sending "B. B."
the recipe she wants. That is for Lady
Baltimore cake.
1 wish to ask ine./same question which
"K. N." propounds: Do you know of any
book that tells what vegetables, fruits and
meats should be used together? And how
to serve meals properly?
I have seen meals served ln so many different ways, and then heard them criticised
by various persons who claimed to he "up"
on such matters, that to one who Is not a
"professional" It la decidedly perplexing.
H "B. B." will look on page »' of "Com-
mon Sense ln the Household" she will lind
I recipe for a white cake which is, In my
opinion, better than Lady Baltimore. I
bave bad tha book tar twenty-nine *****.
A Novel Way of Choosing Partners
THE most troublesome feature of
most parties is the choosing of
partners for games. This grows
especially hard when the party celebrates some special occasion, such as
Valentine's Day.
At a last year affair each lady was
presented with a small mounted picture
of the 1-cent size now so easily obtainable., These pictures were all different, but eact .referred in some way
to love. No two subjects were the same.
To each of the gentlemen was given the
same picture, alBo mounted, that some
one of the ladles possessed, with the exception that his had been cut up into
five or six irregular pieces, and then
pasted In any position on the card,
which made Jt hard to discern just what
ita subject was. Of course, the gentlemen were supposed to search for the
cards identical with their own, and to
claim the lady holding them as their
.artners. This searching created a
great deal of laughter, nnd discussion,
liud effectually broke the Ice.
To Turn an Even Hem
IN HEMMING table linen by hand lt
sometimes seems almost impossible to turn lt down as evenly as
one would wish, and at the same time
make a hem sufficiently narrow. Tho
next time you are troubled try this: Put
your table linen through the hem-
mer of the sewing machine, having
flr.it removed the thread from the
needle. Thero you are with a nice,
S, line hem, firmly pressed into place
and ready to hem. Jt will stay
pressed, too, so that you may do your
whole dozen napkins at ono lltting
and lav them _j.wa.v-

The best materials to use ngalnst

If two or t..ree windows are on one>

sash curtains on each window, ond
the whole framed by one pair of Inner curtains with a deep valance .;. •-
