A LITTLE after daybreak they
went on with the cows. For
thalf a mile or more, until the
little house bad sunk below the
hill crest, Trove was looking backward. Now and ever after he was to
think and tarry also In the road of life
and look behind him for tbe golden
towers of memory. The drovers saw
n change In Trove and flung at him
with tbelr stock of rusty, ancestral
witticisms. But Thurst Tilly had a
way of saying and doing quite his own.
"Never see any one knocked so flat
as ye was," said he. "Ye didn't know
enough t' keep ahead o' the cattle. I
declare, I thought they'd trample ye
'fore we could git yer eye unsot."
Trove mnde no answer.
"That air gal had a mighty power In
her -"ye," Thurst went on. "When I
see her totiu' you off las' night I says
t' tbe boys, says I: 'Sid is goin' t' git
stepped on. He ain't never goin' t' be
the same boy ag'In.' "
Tbe boy held his peace, and for days
neither ridicule nor excitement—save
only for tbe time it lasted—was able to
bring him out of bis dream.
Tbat night tbey came to a wild country, where men and cattle lay down to
rest by the roadway, a thing Trove enjoyed. In the wagon were bread and
butter and boiled eggs and tea and
doughnuts and cake and dried herring.
Tbe men built fires and made tea and
ate their suppers and sang, as the night
fell, those olden ballads at tbe frontier,
"Barbara Allen," "Bonaparte's Dream"
nud the "Drover's Daughter."
For days they were driving in the
wild country. At bedtime each wound
himself ln a blanket and lay down to
rest beneath a rude lean-to lf It were
raining, but mostly under the stars.
On this journey Trove got his habit of
sleeping out of deors In fair weather.
After lt, save In midwinter, walls
seemed to weary and roofs to smother
bim. The drove began to low at daybreak, and soon they were all cropping
the grass or browsing In the briers.
Then tbe milking and breakfast over
a campflre, and soon after sunrise tbey
were all tramping in the road again.
It was a pleasant journey, the waysides glowing with the blue of violets,
tbe green of tender grass, the thick
sown, starry gold of dandelions. Wild
fowl crossed tbe sky in wedge and battalion, their vedettes out, their lines
now Arm, now wheeling in a long curve
to take the path of the wind. Every
thicket was a fount of song tbat fell
to silence when darkness came and the
low chant of tbe marshes.
When they came into settled country
below tbe big woods they began selling. At length the drove was reduced
to one section. Trove following with the
helper named Thurston Tilly, familiarly known as Thurst.
He was a tall, heavy, good natured
man, distinguished for fat, happiness
n"d singular aptitudes. He had lifted
a barrel of salt by tbe chimes and put
it on a wagon; once he had eaten two
mince pies at a meal; again, he bad
put his heels six inches above his head
on a barn door, and any time he could
wiggle one ear or both or whistle on
his thumb.
It was not easy to dispose of cattle
In the southern counties that year, hut
they found a better market as they
bore west, and were across the border
of Ohio when tbe last of tbe drove
were sold. Tbat done, Trove nnd
Thurst Tilly took the main road to
Cleveland, whence they were to return
home by steamboat.
It led them Into woods and by
stumpy fields and pine odored hamlets.
The first day of their walk was rainy,
and they went up a toteway Into thick
timber and built a fire and kept dry
and warm until the rain ceased. That
evening tbey fell ln with emigrants on
their way to the far west.
The latter were camped on the edge
of a wood near the roadway and cooking supper aa the two came nlong. Being far from town Trove and Tilly
were glad to accept the hospitality of
the travelers.
They bad come to the great highway
of travel from east to west. Every
day It was cut by wagons of the mover
overloaded with Lares and Penates,
with old and young, enduring hardships and the loss of home and old acquaintance for hope of better fortune.
A man and wife and three boys were
tbe party, traveling with two wagons.
They were bound for Iowa and, being
heavy loaded, were having a hard
time. All sat on a heap of boughs In
tbe firelight after supper.
"It's a long, long road to Iowa, father," said the woman.
"If 11 soon be over." aaid be, wit- •
lone of encourarrmoDt
i    "I've been thinking all day of the,
' lilacs and the old house," said she.
I    They looked ln silence at the fire a
"We're a bit homesick," said the
man, turning to Trove, "an' no wonder. It's been hard traveling, an" we've
broke down every few miles. But we'll
have better luck the rest o' the journey."
|    Evidently bis cheerful courage had
been all that kept them going.
I "Lost all we had in the great fire of
| '35," said he thoughtfully. "I went to
bed a rich man, but when I rose in tbe
morning I had not enough to pay a
week's board. Everything had been
swept away."
"A merchant?" Trove Inquired.
"A partner in the great Star mill on
East river," said tbe man. "I could
have got a fortune for my share—at
least $100,000—and I had worked hard
for it."
"And were you not able to succeed
"No," said the traveler sadly, shaking
his head. "If some time you have to
lose all you possess, God grunt you still
have youth nnd a strong nrm. I tried—
tbat is all—I tried."
The boy looked up at bim, his heart
touched. The men was near sixty
years of age. His face had deep lines
In it; his voice the dull ring of loss
and failure and small hope. The woman covered her face and began to
"There, mother," said the mnn, touching her head, "we'd better forget. I'll
never speak of thnt again—never.
We're going to seek our fortune. Away
iu the great west we'll seek our fortune."
IFs effort to be cheerful was perhaps
the richest color of that odd scene there
in the still woods and tbe firelight.
"We're going to take a farm in the
most beautiful country in the world.
It's easy to make money there."
"If you've no objection I'd like to go
with.you," eald Thurst Tilly. "I'm a
good farmer."
"Can you drive a team?" said the
"Drove horses all my life," said
Thurst, whereupon tbey made a bargain.     ,
Trove and Tilly went away to the
brook for water, while the travelers
went to bed ln their big covered wagi
on. Trove lay down, with his blanket
on the boughs, reading over the Indelible record of that day. And he said
often, as be thougbt of it years after,
that the saddest thing in all the world
Is a man of broken courage.
Tbey were up betimes ln the morning, and Trove ate hastily from bis
own store and bade tbem all goodby
and made off, for be had yet a long
road to travel. He got to Cleveland
late in the afternoon.
THE second week of September
Trove went down the hills
again to school, wltb food and
furniture beside bim In tbe
great wagou. He had not been happy
since he got home. Word of that evening with the pretty "Vaughn girl" bad
come to the ears of Allen.
"You're too young for thet, boy," said
be the day Trave came. "You must
promise me one thing—that you'll keep
away from ber until you are eighteen."
In every conviction Allen was like
the hills about him—there were small
changes on the surface, but underneath
they were ever the same rock boned,
firm, unmovlng hills.
"But I'm In love with her," said the
boy, with dignity. "It is more than I
can bear. I tell you, sir, that I regard
the young lady with—with deep affection." He hud often a dignity of
phrase nnd manner beyond his years.
"Then it will Inst," said Allen.
"You're only a boy, and for awhile I
know whnt is best for you."
Trove had to promise, and as that
keen edge of his feeling wore away
doubted no more the wisdom of his father. He wrote Polly a letter quaint
with boyish chivalry and frankness,
one of a package that has lain these
many years in old ribbons and tbe
scent of lavender.
He went to the Sign of the Dial as
soon as he got to Hillsborough that
day. Darrel was at home, end a happy
time It was, wherein each gave account
of the summer. A stranger sat working at tlie small bench. Darrel gave
him no heed, chatting aa if they were
quite alone.
"And what is the news ln Hillsborough?" said Trove, bis part ef the story
"Have ye not heard?" said Darrel In
a whisper. "Parson Hammond hath
a warmed horse-" j
Trove began to laugh.
"Nay, tbat Is not all," said the tinker,
his pipe In hand. "Deacon Swackham-
mer hath smitten the head o' Brooke.
Oh, sor, 'twas a comedy. Brooke gave
blm an 111 sounding word. Swackham-
mer removed his coat an' flung It
down. 'Deacon, lie there,' said he.
Then each began, as It were, to bruise
tbe head o' the serpent. Brooke, poor
man, he got the worst of It. An', sad
to tell, his wife died tho very next
"Of what?" Trove inquired.
"Marry, I do not know; It may have
been joy," said tlie tinker, lighting his :
pipe.   "Ab, sor, Brooke Is tough.   He j
smites the helping hand an' siekens the |
heart o' kindness.    I offered bim help |
on' sy/apathy, an' he made it all bitter
with suspicion o' me.   I turned away
an' Said I to meself: 'Darrel, tby head j
Is soft   A babe could bruin thee with j
a lady's fun.' " i
Darrel puffed his pipe In silence * j
llttle time. |
"Every, one hates Brooke." said
Trove. I
"Well, I'd another chance to try the
good »aw on him," said Darrel presently. "In July he fell sick o' fever, an'
I delayed in o trip to nurse him. At
length, when he was nearly well an' ,
I had come to his home one evening, I
the Widow Glover met me nt his door.
" 'If ye expect money fer comin' here, J
ye better go on 'bout yer business,'
Brooke shouted from the bedroom. T
don't need ye nny more, an' I'll send
ye a bashel o' potatoes by 'n by. Good

Curious Origin of Words and Phrases
Commonly Used.
According to etymology a "retail
grocer" as It used to be spelt, ls really
a trader "In gross"—that ls to say, In
large quantities, wholesale. Englishmen of other days spoke of "grossers
of fish" and "grossers of wine," and an
act of Edward III. expressly mentions
that "grossers" dealt ln all manner ot
goods. In those days "splcer" was the
word for "grocer" ln the modern
sense. But It happened that the Grocers' Company, founded ln the fourteenth century, specialized ln splcery,
and so "grocer" gradually took .the
place of "splcer." |
"Blatherskite"   ls   generally   recognized as an American word,  but Its
origin ls Scotch, really the old "bletherskate," from "blether," to talk nonsense (old Norse "bladhr," nonsense) 1
and "skate," a term of opprobrium. In'
the song, "Maggie   Lauder,"    written I
about 1650, occur the words, "Jog on I
your gait, ye bletherskate";  and this
song was a very popular one In tbe
American camp during the war of In-!
dependence. Hence the vogue of the
expressive word, ln Its Americanised
form. "Bletherumsklte," was the Irish
version early ln  the nineteenth century.
"Etiquette" ls a French word which
originally meant a label Indicating the
price or quality the English "ticket"—
and in old French was usually sperfal-
I ls-d , to mean a soldier's  billet.  The
! phrase "that's the ticket" shows the
I change of the present meaning of manners' according  to  code.    Burke sol*
•mnly explained that "etiquette had Its
original application to those ceremonies and formal observances practiced
at courts. The term came afterward to
signify certain formal methods used ln
the transaction*   between   sovereign

Unusual  Financial   Schema   Adopted
By Agent of Canadian Government
In Paying Debt to Indians.
Several years ago the Canadian
Government took irom the tribes
oi Indians about Athabasca lake
and river a large tract oi land
and in payment for the same it gives
each year $5 to each Indian and $25
to the chiefs and their families. This
money is paid in $1 bills.
The reason for this is that the Indians dwelling in the district do not
know the value of money, writes ths
Seattle, Wash., correspondent of The
Chicago Tribune. A paper dollar looks
to him about the same as a blank
piece of paper to a baby. Should the
payment be made in silver the simple
minded child of the wilderness would
Sunch a hole in it and wear it about
is neck, and thus a great deal ef
morfey would be taken from circulv
tion. Should payment be made in one
bill, the Indian is liable to lose it.
Once each year a representative of
the Canadian Government makes a
trip through the country and pays the
Indians. On this trip he takes $30,
000 in $1 bills, and will probably pay
out more than $200,000. The naturul
question from civilization is, how does
he do it?
As the Indian knows nothing about
the value of money, his method of financial trade is on the value of skins,
and when, one talks dollars to him
his face has the expression of a blank
cartridge. Fortunately for the Government, the Hudson Bay company has
seoured the entire confidence of the
Iidians during the century of dealing
with them and the money paid to the
Indians finds its way into the trading
posts of the company.
Here is how the Government paymaster does his phenomenal stunt ol
paying $200,000 or more with only $30,-
000 ln his pocket. He goes direct to a
district inhabitated by perhaps 2,000
or 8,000 Indians; here he will pay
from $10,000 to $20,000 in "treaty
money." Each Indian and his family
is given the five $1 bills in payment
for his surrender of the land and each
ohief hia $25.
After making this payment the, paymaster takes a rest for a short time st
the Hudson Bay post nearest the pay
station. Within a few days the Indians
have made a line to the post and there
purchased whatever looks good to
them. They whack the money down
on to the trading post counter, order
something worth perhaps 50 cents and
leave. The company agent charges the
red man with what he has purchased
and credits him with the balance cf
the $5, so that in the future he can
trade out the remainder of the
Within a week from the date of paying the treaty money every dollar of
the amount has been paid into the
trading post. The paymaster gives the
post agent a check for the amount and
starts for the next Indian settlement.
Thus he goes from one tribe to
another, paying the Indians, waiting
for the money to be turned into the
posts, and continuing on his rounds.
When the agent returns to Edmonton
or baok to civilization he has about
all the money he had upon beginning
the journey and has paid out mora
than $200,000.

The  Harei Collided.
An incident of a very curious character happened at the meet of Mr.
E. A_. Hardwick's Weston-super-Mare
Harriers at North Petherton, England.
The hounds were in full cry in a

Te Compete With Ontario.
Two forces are at work which ought
greatly to assist in the movement lo
secure the packing of nothing but good
fruit in Ontario. One is the determination of the merchants and citizens
generally of the Prairie Provinces to
enforce the Fruit Marks Act and the
other ls the competition of the British
Columbia fruit grower. The Nor-West
Farmer records a case where a mer-
ohant at Carberry, Manitoba, refused
delivery of a carload of Ontario apples, wired the fruit inspector, who,

ear aa falsely marked. The fruit was
sold for a much lower figure than originally arranged for, and this loss as
well as the cost oi enforcing the law
had to be borne by the packer. This
is one of the lessons the Chief of the
Fruit Department, Mr. A. McNeill, :s
trying to teach. The other lesson that
"the Columbians '11 get ye if ye don't
watch out," is emphasized by The
Vernon News, which represents tho
interests of the Okanagan Valley. This
bright, well-printed journal does not
read Ontario growers a sermon for
their wickedness, but it contains whut
is more dangerous, namely, two nr
three columns of interesting reading
concerning the development of small
fruit, poultry and truck farms in the
Valley. These farmers appears to be
doing exceedingly well, and what with
a ready local sale of vegetables and
eggs at 76 cents per donn this is not
surprising. All of them are planting
out orchards, and when these come
into bearing the competition which
Ontario growers experience weBt of
Winnipeg will be keener.

They Were Once yery Gorceona end
•Worn In the Daytime.
In the middle ages night robes, as a
general thing, were unknown luxuries.
Under the Tudors royalty and nobility hnd them made of silk or velvet, and, as the old books say, "hence
no washing was necessary."
A night robe of black satin bound
with black taffeta and edged with velvet of tbe same color was daintily
fashioned for Anne Boleyn. ^
More luxurious still was one owned
by Queen Bess. It was of black velvet, fur lined, and greatly offset by
flowing borders of silk lace. And In
1568 her majesty gave orders that
George Brodlgman should deliver
"threescore and six best sable skynnes,
to furnish us a night gown." Four
years later her highness orders the
delivery of "twelve yards of purple
velvet, friezed on the back syde, with
white and russet silke," for a night
gown for herself and also orders the
delivery of fourteen yards of murry
damask for the "makynge of a night
gowne" for some one else.
Night gowns tor ladles of a later
period were called "nyght vails." In
Queen Anne's time It was the fashion
to wear them over the customary dress
In the streets In the daytime, when out
on a pleasure walk. And, as was fitting, ladles who indulged in nightcaps had them also made of silk or
velvet, with "much pretty garnishing
of lace and glittering cords," and the
fair ones made presentation of costly
caps to each other as tokens of respect
or affection.
How They Are Stripped .t Their
Sheila While Alive.
The shells shipped from the Colon
district are takeu from turtles caught
on the Lagarto and San Bias coasts of
the Caribbean sea during the months
of May, June, July aud August, when
they approach the shore to deposit
eggs, which are laid ou the sandy-
beaches above high water mark at
night. Holes are dug about one and a
half feet deep and the eggs deposited
therein. Generally about three layings
are made during a period of nine
weeks. The eggs are lightly covered
witb sand and left to be batched out
by the heat of the sun. The turtles are
caught either while on shore or in the
water by means of nets.
As a rule, they are killed Immediately
after being caught, cleaned and tbe
shell frame washed with sand. But oa
the San Bias coast the Indians de not
kill tbem, but at once proceed to remove the shell by subjecting the turtles to great heat, afterward throwing
the turtles back Into the sea. By the
application of heat the successive plate*
of shell come off very easily.
Turtles caught In these waters vary
ln size from one to four and a half feet
long, with a maximum weight of ISO
pounds, and the average weight of
shell obtained from each ls from six te
seven pounds. The commercial value
of tortoise shell depends upon the thickness and size of tbe plates rather than
upon the brilliancy of the colors.
Ther Waited Well.
A large audience once gathered In
Baltimore to hear Professor Sylvester
read a unique original poem of 400
lines, all rhyming witb tbe name Rosalind. He had appended to the poem a
large number of explanatory footnotes,
which he said be would read first.
When at last he had done so he looked up at the clock and was horrified t»
find that he had kept the audience aa
hour and a half before beginning to
read the poem they had come to hear.
The astonishment on bis face was answered by a burst of good humored
laughter from the audience, and then,
after begging all bis bearers to feel at
perfect liberty to leave If they had engagements, he read the Rosalind poem.

dyspepsia, headnche, and heartburn
before he tried Bileans. The six
did him no good. Bileans have
cured him! He says: "I had
heartburn, dyspepsia and wind after food. The nourishment I took
seemed to do me no good, and the
pain I suffered was very acute. I
tried six different remedies before
Bileans, but they did me no good.
With Bileans it was quite different.

ence and the pain within a few

in  a complete cure."
In every country where they

Out In Wyoming a lot of scientific
grubbers have unearth*)- the fossil remains of a horse thirty feet long and
more than thirty feet high. The grubber* seem to haye pieced the horse together without any comment, and they
don't offer a word of Information concerning either his genealogy or hi*
track record.
A horse thirty feet long would appear to be a lot of horse. If he belonged to tbe cave man the latter certainly had hia handa full. A horse so tall
that a thirty foot ladder became necessary when his bridle waa to be put
on might well be called the pride of
the stable, although no ordinary stable
would begin to accommodate htm.
If the cave man hadn't any ladder
•nd couldn't borrow, one the next best
thing was to climb a tree. Then try to
Imagine him shinning up a tall palm
with the heavy bridle on hia back, only
to find when he attained the right altitude that the horse had moved beyond
reach and was peacefully browsing on
the tall grass ot the jungle!
Of course a thirty foot horse could be
expected to cover much more ground
than the ordinary animal of the same
breed, even at a walk. And lf he took
lt Into his head to work hia way across
lots there would appear to be nothing
to Impede him. Fences would go dowu
before him llko stubble, and • merely
playful cavort would carry him over
raging torrents.
When a thirty foot horse shied at a
bit of white paper In the roadway the
chances are that he jumped clear over
Into the next county.
As a war horse the thirty footer
must have been a startler. When he
let out a neigh the enemy fled ln blind
and unreasoning terror. When he
champed his bit and pawed the ground
the very hills shuddered. When he
switched his tall tbe hireling foe fell
about him like ripened grain.
And then think of the nightmare that
could be expected to follow the first
sight of this prodigious equine! He
certainly was a wonder. It ls a great
pity we know so little about him.—

In common with many animals noted
for the beauty and value of their fur,
the chinchilla of South America Is In
danger of becoming extinct, owing to
the reckless Impunity with which these
little natives of the Andes have been
slaughtered both In season and out.
The chinchilla Is about tbe size of a
squirrel, has a head somewhat the
shape of a rabbit's and ls covered with
a light gray, silky fur, which has long
been very popular In the fur markets
of the world. Chinchillas are captured
ln various ways, but the most common
method ls to hunt them with dogs, the
fox terrier being the most useful and
skillful In their capture. In hunting
them the Indians employ a weasel,
which Is trained to enter the crevices
of the rocks, where the animals often
lie concealed during the day to avoid
tbe sunshine, and drive them out,
when they are easily killed. The rapid
extermination of tbe chinchilla and
the absolute lack of protection or regulation In taking them have resulted ln
a tremendous advance ln the price of

There are half • dozen inns "well

in England, writes a correspondent in
The Manchester Guardian. Tan Hill
Inn is 1,727 feet above sea level. The
Cat and Fiddle near Buxton comes
next, 1,600 feet up; and its comparatively near neighbor, the Travelers'
Rest at Flash, on the Leek and Buxton road, is third, 1,535 feet. The
next three inns of the scries are further afield. There is the Isle of Skye
Inn near Holmfirth, 1,500 feet above
sea level; the Travelers' Rest at the
top of Kirkstone Pass, between Windermere and Patterdale, 1,467 feet;
and the Newby Head between Black
Hawes and Ingleton, 1,420 feet. These
high-placed inns are not the most remote from customers even in the winter time. The Cat and Fiddle, for example, gets customers on the bleakest days in mid-winter. Very different
ls the experience of the Barrel Inn
on the ridge between Eyam and Hath-
ersage. There are some weeks in the
winter months in which (ono has it
on the testimony of a former holder of

times has been diverted from the old

Nothing Reached the Root of ths
Trouble Unil Dr. Wil iams' Pink
Pills Were Used.
"I suffered almost untold agony
from rheumatism. For several
weary months I waa confined to bed.
I had the best of medical treatment,
but nothing seemed to reach the root
of tht disease until I used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These have completely restored my health." This
strong emphatic statement is made
by Mrs. Edna Morrill, Woodstock, N.

given up as incurable by doctors.
She further says: "I suffered for over
two years and rheumatism seemed to
be firmly implanted is my system. At
the outset I was able to attend to
my household duties, but at night I
suffered the greatest pain. I at
once began to take medicine but my
condition actually grew worse. I was
attended by a skilful doctor but was
ultimately forced to remain in bed,
suffering untold agony with every
movement. Finally the doctors told
me the trouble was incurable. One
day I was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I decided to d°
so. Presently the pains were not so
severe, and I began to feel myself
gaining. Shortly after I was able
to go about, and in less than three

Women   Who   Follow   Fashion   Will
Have Big Burden.
A course of physical culture may
be necessary for the smart woman this
winter if she hopes to endure the
extraordinary load that fashion is
laying on her form from the lobes
of her ears to the toes of her feet.
Even her picture hat, light as it is,
compared to its size, ia so large that
it must make itself felt to an extent
that no hat should do.

is no longer seen on the amart woman's hands. Twenty or twenty-four
buttons measure the exaggerated
length of her driving, morning or
scented white kid "at home" glovea.
Boots have doubled their height,
while the simple laces on walking
shoes have been replaced by ribbons
tied in enormous bows.
A reporter who visited well-known
London torms to learn the extent of
thia craze for magnificent adornments waa met by the information
that the demand tor exaggeration i*
likely to increase.
"Picture hats are aasuming the
most extraordinary proportions," a
Bond street milliner confessed, "but
the most noticeable point is the gigantic shapes of the floral trimmings.
A cabbage rose in pink velvet is becoming perilously near the aize of a
real cabbage. Bunches of grapes
adorn the newest hats, each grape being about double the circumference ef
the genuine fruit.
"Veils are following the fashion in
hats. The minute chenille spot is replaced by black velvet patchea the
size of a sixpenny piece, and as tor
hat-pins, I doubt if they can increase
in size. Most of the latest patterns
are adorned with knobs which would
not make insignificant door handles."
"The tendency in jewelry is to adopt
distinctly exaggerated styles," a well-
known jeweler in Regent street said—
"Large Oriental rings, heavily studded with Jewels, are in great demand.

lobes of the wearer's ears, are made

Woman's Home Companion. In this
poem, which occupies two full pngeB of

the usual procedure aud describes the
Judgment from Pilate's point of view.
The result is a mnsterly and novel
treatment of the most marvelous trial
scene iu the world's history. The
poem is strikingly decorated by

royal encouragement, why should they
not be wreckers? One Sunday, long

when there came tbe cry of, "Wreck!"
The men started from their seats. In
a moment there would bave been a
stampede, but they cowered back as
the minister sternly thundered a warning. He strode to the door. Again his
voice arose. "Lei's all start fair!" he
ahouted, throwing off Impeding cassock
as be ran, while his congregation labored at his beels. Most curious of all
wrecks was that of a burk, with a cargo of beads, that went ashore 200 years
ago. So generous has been the ocean
with thla treasure that throughout
these two centuries it has Intermittently been tossing beads ashore, yet so
frugally that the supply is not yet exhausted, for in a few minutes' search
I found that some had been thrown

Napoleon III. of France, when a
prisoner ln the fortress at Ham, wrote
and published a paper on the possibility of linking the Pacific and Atlantic
oceans by means of a canal. This
created so profound an Impression
that tbe minister plenipotentiary of
Guatemala offered him tne presidency
of the construction of the Nicaragua
canal. The proposal was followed by
the offer of the presidency of the
Ecuador republic. The latter offer was
conditional upon King Louis Philippe's
releasing the captive and upon tha
letter's giving his parole never to return to Europe. Louis Napoleon was
prepared to give bis parole, and Sir
Robert Peel, then prime minister of
Great Britain, was willing to back np
his application for release upon theso

not hear of lt, so the prisoner remain*

Hlatorr on a Watch Face.
Almost the last work of the Belgian
astronomer Houzeah was an article In
which, while arguing In favor of a decimal division of time, he pointed out
the origin of the double set of twelve
hours represented on our watch and
clock faces. The ancient Inhabitants
of Mesopotamia chose the number 12
as an arithmetical base because it bus
four divisors—viz, 2, 3, 4 and 0, while
10 has only two divisors—viz, 2 nnd 5.
They counted twelve hours In the day
and twelve in the night, measuring the
day by the progress of the suu and the
night by the progress of the stars
across the sky. This system, prevailing over all others, has come down to
us, and so our watches bear on their
faces a souvenir of those ancient days
when the sun served for a clock band

Some one has found a hint, as soma
one always does when there Is a new
Invention or discovery, of the automobile ln the Bible. It ls the vision of
Nahum, the Elkoshite, concerning the
burden of Nineveh. In the account
given by this seer of the military muster and array of the Medes and Babylonians against the doomed City of
Nineveh, the mistress of witchcrafts,
when "the people In the midst of her
were women," the Elkoshite has this
remarkable verse: "The chariots shall
rage In the streets, they shall jostle
one against another ln the broad ways,
they shall seem like torches, they shall
run like the lightnings." A variant of
the word "jostle," which the original
Hebrew will, lt Is ssld, equally well
or b*etter beer, ls "pass swiftly, with
out particular purpose, to and fro," a
rendering which brings the cars of
the Hebrew prophet Into, . perhaps,
still closer connection with the motor

Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
The keen competition of life is'now
felt in all grades of society, and us
the result prostration, paralysis nnd
insanity are becoming more, and
more common as the natural outcome
of exhausted nerves.
S'eeplessness, irrit ibility, indigestion, headache and a general lack of
energy and ambition are among the
early indications of nervous troubles,
and with women the result is not infrequently derangements and irregularities of the feminine organism.
If a committee of experts on diseases of the nerves were to prescribe
for you they would give you just such
a formula as that of Dr.' Chase's
Nerve Food, for this medicine is composed of the most powerful restoratives known in medical science.

have your physician call at these offices and examine the formula.

The  Fire.   Duel.   Are   Said   •<•   Hav*
Been Fought In Italy.
*- The first duels were fought In Italy,
according to Millingen, who speaks of
a manuscript discovered at Cassel and
describes a duel between a father and
a son In the reign of the Emperor The-
odoric. When Charlemagne forbade
wager of battle among the Lombards
he encountered the fiercest opposition
from the nobles. Early tn tbe ninth
century De Medlcis, a knight, defeated
In single combat the bandit Mugel,
wbo devastated the Florentine district
now called after him, Mugello. Otho
II. granted the prayer of the nobility
for the re-establishment of wager of
battle in 088. Women and priests
were not compelled to accept lt Tbe
Normans showed less gallantry. With
tbem a woman had to accept, nor conld
she name a champion. Her male opponent, however, was burled to his
waist In the earth. Armed with a
clulu he tried to strike her as she circled around blm, his weapon being a
ball of Iron at the eud of a cord. If he
failed to touch her at the third attempt he was vanquished, which
meant to him death with dishonor.
Beccarin says that the reason so
many duels were fought In Italy In
the early days ls that where the law
docs not afford protection o_e must
look to single combat to retain the respect of one's fellow men. In the middle ages the ferocity of Italian duels
passes belief. "Any way of putting an
enemy to denth ('ognl modo') Is good
enough," says one of their writers.
"When an Italian spares his vanquished adversary," says Brantome, "ho
maims his arms and legs and gives
him as a memento of his kindness and
generosity a hideous gash across the
face." Lampagnano practiced on a
painted model of Galeazzo Sforza before he stabbed him. Dueling was
called "la scleaza cavalleresi-."

NO woman can be well dressed
without good-looking gloves.
Her gown may be of the best
cut, her hat the daintiest of
French confections, her furs the finest
sables, but if her -.loveg are shabby,
soiled, torn or badly put on, the whole
effect of her costume ls spoiled.
A   wise    woman    never   buys    ber
floves on the bargain counter. Sbe
nows that lt will pay her to get
a good pair in the beginning and to
take care of them. Good gloves are expensive, but they are worth while;
they are looked upon as a luxury by
some women, but they are a paying
luxury in the end. for one pair at %2,
well taken care of, will outlast five
pairs at a dollar.
First of all, it is a good plan to select a shop for your gloves that is satisfactory and stick to it. lf you are a
regular customer, you will have no
difficulty in retting your gloves repaired whenever it is necessary. In
the better stores they Keep one
woman especially to do the repair
work, and she will tend a rip or tear
or put ln an extra thumb or finger
sn skilfully that tbe glove will look
almost like new.
Next, have your gloves fitted at tbe
counter. The woman who makes a
business of such things naturally
knowB better how it should be done
than the amateur; the first "putting
on" counts tremendously in the after
appearance. _aany a glove Is spoiled
by hastily thrusting a hand that is
moist from perspiration or perhaps a
little soiled into it. More are ruined
by crooked seams or by tiny, shriveled
tips which come from not putting the
fingers in carefully and thoroughly.
Now a moist hand le usually the result of bad circulation, and tbe remedy applied should go to the root of
the evil. Powdering the hand works
temporarily, but if the practice Is persisted tn for any length of time, a very
disagreeable odor clings to tl.» glove.
Instead of the powder puff, the woman
with moist hands should resort to the
Turkish towel. A brisk rubbing Just
before putting on the glove will dry
off the moisture and get the circulation into good shape.
When you begin to put on your glove
be leisurely. Work each finger down
until lt comes to the tip of tbe glove
linger. And Just here it is well to caution all women against buying gloves
that are too long Tn the fingers. If the
make that you specially like ls too long
get the professional repair woman to
shorten tne fingers for you, but whatever you do, don't indulge in superfluous ends of wrinkled kid.
Some women seize their short gloves
by the  wrist  ana  drag them bn with

vicious energy. Tbls means, of course,
a stretched wrist or a torn .thumb seam
—perhaps both. When the glove ls safely on see that every part Is smooth ana
trig and fasten both buttons or clasps.
Nothing is more untidy than a glove
that le only partly fastened. Occasionally this happens because the glove ls
too tight, and If women only realized
the hideousness of a cushion of super-
flous flesh sticking up through the glove '

buying the next larger size.
The effect of a long glove Is often
spoiled by Its slipping down below the
elbow, leaving a tine of flesh between
the glove and the sleeve for every
passerby to behold. Well-dressed women avoid this possibility by putting a
narrow hem at the top of their glover
and running a piece of elastic through <
this hem. A glove fixed this way always fits smooth and taut.
wrlnklei, about  *b» wrist  In  a  long
glove give a clumsy, awkward appearance to the arm. - Keep tbe wrist-line as
smooth as possible, letting the wrinkles,
which are a part of the long glove, or
course, begin several Inches further up.
This gives a graceful, tapering effect to
the arm.
Taking the glove off ls as important
as putting it on. Turn the glove back
and draw off slowly. Never pull at tne
finger tips, for you are apt to stretch
and tear them,   and  you  will ruin  tne
hape  of your glove.    When the glove
is  fairly  off,   turn  it right  side out. ,

HERB is an endless variety ot
curtains, good, bad and Indifferent — particularly indifferent. How often do we see expensive lace curtains with nothing
really against them except thut they
are deadly uninteresting and hopelessly commonplace. And there Is really no excuse for it. For some of the
prettiest window effects can be had
with curtains costing but II a pair.
In my opinion too few curtains
have colors in them. It seems such
a good opportunity to carry out the
color scheme, and we can often soften the light and give a pretty effect
to a room by using, for instance, light
green or yellow silk sash curtains.
Other pretty colored effects can be
obtained by using colored madras
curtains. These come In exquisite
shades and with big bold designs, as
well as small geometrical ones. One of
the accompanying illustrations shows
curtains of this sort The curtains
bang close against the sash and
.straight down. They have small brass
rings, which move easily on the tiny

It is a great deal better to have simple
curtains, good of their kind, rather than
cheap copies of more expensive ones.
Simple swIsb curtains are r.lway.-: In
good taste, and are used in many of tbe

Keep your gloves folded in tissue-

«rat Ion. The simple, pleated valance and.
the curtains are most decorative and
add much to this pretty bedroom.    The
nslde curtains are of white swias.
Another Illustration shows curtains
made from a Jarvanses print. These ara
the most serviceable curtains imaginable, as they defy the sun, and also
the washtub. They will hold their colors till they are worn threadbare. They
certainly make attractive curtains, if
the room warrants strong coloring. In
putting up such curtains, allowance
must be made for shrinkage: and the
clever housekeeper turns the hem in at
the top several times to allow for this.
Not long ago e. young homemaker redecorated her drawing room.    She carried out her scheme In green and white.
Her large bay window she curtained lr»
white fishnet.   When the room was fin-
Islii-d and she surveyed it, she felt that
something was not right.   The window
was too pronounced.   The whiteness of
it seemed -.inius-i garish.   So she lined i
the net curtains with green China silk,
and this was a great success; the light
filtering through the green silk curtains
was  soft  and  pleasing,  while the  bay:

can buy the swIss and make a simple
hem on the side and bottom and let
them hang straight. The accompanying
illustrations show both ways. Other
pretty curtains can be made of scrim,
bobbinet or fishnet, but these are more
expensive. Scrim is much used for stenciled curtains: and theso aro very pretty
when in keeping with the room. Often
the design of the wall paper can be
adapted to a stencil—such as a design of
poppies and leaves, etc.; and this gives a
pretty effect of uniformity.
There ls a large scope for Inside curtains, but the coloring Is the chief point
to consider ln choosing them. Pretty
bedroom curtains can be made of unbleached muslin with a border of cretonne sewed on. Some of the cretonnes
are particularly adapted for this, as they
have striped designs and can readily be
applied. The cretonne should, if possible, have a deep cream ground when applied to unbleached muslin. Curtains
done ln this way are shown la the HJua-
