turned backward till the barrel pointed at the eud of the gaff and big Swen-
sen's voice Raid calmly:
"_uh, 1 guess not. Yust valt a minute, Mr. Burke. Mr. Neekerson, vat I
do vlt him, hey?"
It was mutiny, of course, mutiny,
pure and simple, but Bradley had gone
too far to back out now. i
"Take him below aud lock him In his!
-stateroom," he said. "Tell the doctor.'
to nee that he doesn't break out. Then)
come back to me. Yes, you may give
me the revolver."
Swensen twisted the pistol from the;
-first mate's hand and tben, picking bim!
up as he would a ten-year-old boy,!
started for the cabin. Burke struggled,
furiously and swore like a wild man,
but he couldn't break away. The'
shouts grew fainter and then were
muffled almost entirely by tbe closing
of the stateroom door.
Bradley put the revolver In his.
****.>6'***,'the_', men," he Said, "I'm skipper ol this schooner for the rest of this
.voyage. Is there anybody here that
doesn't understand it? No? All right.
lO'Leary, go for'ard on lookout Peter-:
|son, heave the lead. Swensen," as the1
|blg Swede came up the ladder, "takei
Jthe wheel and keep her as she ls."
All tbat morning until daybreak sent,
{the fog rolling to the north ln tumbled;
(clouds the lead was going, and the
crew were busy on the Thomas Doane.
Bradley stood close at Swensen's elbow;
end edged her out, feeling bis way;
with the lead and listening to the callsj
of the fog horns. The schooner's own
foot power horn was kept tooting, and'.
by and by, as they got out Into the
■ship channel, It was answered by other;
horns and bells, some close aboard,
•ome distant.
But- by breakfast time it was clear
|*nd fine, and, before a cracking wind.1
(the schooner walked along as If she
(realized her escape and was trying to
show her gratitude. Through that day
Bradley stood by the wheel, only leafing to eat a mouthful and to Inquire
after Captain Titcomb, who was much
improved and beginning to ask questions. And Just at dusk the gUt dome
of Uie Boston statehous* shone dimly
ln the dying light, and the Thomas
Doane, resting from her labors, moved
easily behind the tug up to her dock.
Sbe bad made splendid time, but Bradley was far from bappy. There was
trouble coming, and be knew lt
He sent word to the cook ordering
the latter to unlock the stateroom door
and release tbe imprisoned first male.
A minute later the cook came on deck,
bis eyes shining witb excitement
"Mr. Burke, he go right Into tbe skipper's room and shut the- door," whispered the Portuguese. "And now they
talk, talk, talk. And Mr. Burke he
swear all tbe time."
Wben the first mate appeared he did
not speak to any one, but jumped to
the wharf and hurried away. A doctor
was sent for and Captain Titcomb's
.wound was dressed. The physician said
tbe injury was not serious. There was
no concussion of the brain, and the patient would be all rlgbt In a couple of
Bradley didn't sleep much tbat night
Next morning tbe captain sent for him.
Wben the second mate entered the
stateroom be found the skipper sitting
on the edge of the berth with a big
bandage on his head, but looking very
bright and like himself.
He seemed oddly embarrassed when
Bradley came ln. For a moment or
two he did not speak. The second mate,
who bad expected a scorching rebuke
and was prepared to meet lt, was surprised at the mildness of the flrst remark.
i "Now, then, Brad," said Captain Tit-
Icomb, "set down. Whut's this about
|you and the mate? Tell tbe whole
lyarn, flrst and last."
, So Bradley told lt Just as lt happened-the crew's behavior, his suspicions,
tbe sighting of the light and what followed.
"Humph!" Captain Ezra nodded.
"Yup, that's about what Burke said.
Now, Brad, I s'pose you knew that
Mr. Burke was your superior officer
land tbat wbat he said was law for you,
jdidn't you?"
j   "Yes, sir; but"—
"Never mind tbe 'huts' now. Taking
command by force la serious—mlgbty

1 "Well, s'pose she would. There'd

But. Mr. Burke Knew sbe was headed
for the shoals. He must bave known
It.   The owners would have"—
."What do you know about the owners and their affairs?"
"But the schooner?"
"She's   a   hulk,   that's  all—and   Insured."
The reply was an odd one, but the
tone In which It was made was odder
still. 8trange things had happened
durtne the past week; Captain Tit-
oom'i'n silent 111 humor, the Interview-
th" A'r h'-'r"' '"'vtnir New York, tht
sudden change of mates, the skipper'*

determination to keep on the course set
by bim even after the proximity to the
shoals had been proved beyond a doubt
--all these were Angers pointing in one
direction. Bradley, however, had not.
looked tn that direction. But now the!
last wisp of fog blew away and be
saw clearly.
"Cap'n Ez!" he gasped. "Cap'n Ez!
Were you going to wreck her on pur-'
The captain shifted in his seat but'
did not look at his companion.
"Orders are orders," he said. "Mr.
_urke was your skipper—with me out
of the way—and you ought to have
minded him. Just as I should my owners."
"Wreck a vessel for her Insurance!",
groaned Bradley. "I didn't think you'd
do it, Cap'n Ez. I didn't tblnk you'd:
do It!"
The dismay, the grieved disappointment and horror in his friend's tone,
seemed to hurt Captain Titcomb sorely. He glanced at Bradley and then'
looked away again.
"I've heard all sorts of yarns about
you ln Orham," went on Bradley.
"They say you're too smart and that
you'll bear watching and all that I've
called those that said It liars, and I've
stood by you through thick and thin.
But now— What do you think they'd
say lf they knew of this? What do you
think Miss Prissy and Miss Tempy
would say? Why, they b'lieve you're
the best"-
The captain broke ln testily. "Never
mind all that," be said. "As for 'Squealer* Wixon and Jabe Bailey's talk, I
don't care a snap. And the old maids
ain't exactly up to date In this world's
way of lookln' at things. S'pose the old
Doane was booked for thunderatlon by
the shoal route—what of It? Mind, I
only say s'pose. -tetter to go that way
on a smooth nlgbt, with all hands saved, than to bust up In a squall and
drown us all, as .was likely to happen
any minute. Nobody loses but the Insurance folks, and they'd lose quick
enough anyhow. Why, it's done a hundred times a year all along this coast.
•Member when tbe Bay Queen piled up
on the beach off Setucklt last summer?
Everybody was as sartln as could be
that 'twas done a-purpose, but you
couldn't prove nothln'. So with the
Rhoda Horton and the Banner and any
quantity more. S'pose—mind, I'm only
s'posln'—that you'd got orders from
your owners—orders, you understand-
to do somethln' you didn't like? S'pose
you'd always stuck to owners' orders a
good deal closer'n you bad to the Bible?
You talk a lot. So do other folks. But
what would you have done?"
"I'd have been honest and said *JJo.'"
"Humpul Well, I guess you would.
You're the nearest thing to an honest
man that I've ruu across ylt. Honesty
ls the best policy, they say. But was il
honesty that made ha'f tbe millionaires? Are Williams Bros, rich because
they've always been honest? Josb

most honest critter ln Ornain, while bis
brother Sol Is chairman of school committee, deacon In the church, has money ln the bank and would skin the eye-
teeth out of a down east horse Jockey.
"Cnp'n Ez," Interrupted Bradley,
"stop tnlkln' that way. You don't believe a word of lt. I know' you too
well. The trouble with you Is that everlasting 'owners' orders.' I almost
think that tbat accident last night was,
as Miss Tempy would say, 'sent' to
keep you from doing something you'd
be sorry for all the rest of your days."
The captain looked at the speaker
oddly. "Then you cal'late," he said,
"that I ought to thank God A'mlghty
and a tipsy fo'mast hand for savin*
what tbe book folks would call my
honor? That's all right; only wait till
Williams Bros, send me their'thanks
on a clean plate With gilt doodads round tbe edges. Williams
Bros, and your particular friend,
Mr. Burke, ain't been heard from yet
my son. Well, Brad, I s'pose you'll be
parkin' up tonight anyway. An honest
man, 'c.ordln' to your log, ain't needed
on tne TZlomas Doane. I tora-ywyou
J ought to ship 'board the Arrow."
"I didn't ship on the Arrow because
I'd rather be with you than anybody
else on earth.. I wouldn't sail with a
rascal that would wreck a schooner,
and I don't believe—I know you're not
a rascal. Oh, can't you see? It Isn't myself I'm thinking about—It's you—you!"
The captain took his knife from his
pocket and* whittled a corner off the
cabin table before replying. Then be
said slowly:
"Much obliged, Brad. But what do
7ou s'pose Williams Bros, will want
me to do when they give me orders
for this liner's next trip?"
"I don't know."
"S'pose those orders are the some
as tbe last, what then?"
"Then say 'No,' like an honest man."
Captain Ezra gave a short laugh.
"Honesty,, my son, ls like dl'monds
sometimes—It's pretty, but It comes
high. You turn*in. I'm goin' to set
up awhile and smoke."
Bradley reluctantly went to bed, but
when he awoke, several hours later,
he beard the captain stirring In hia
Next morning the skipper receiyed a
telegram. „
"Williams Bros., havin' heard from
friend Burke, want to have a llttle
chat with the commander of the
clipper Thomas Doane," he remarked
to Bradley. "That doctor squllgeeln'
my maintop with his physic stuff has
made me feel Al again. I'm goln'to
New York tonight on the Fall River
And he went, leaving Mr. Burke In
tommand of the schooner, a state of
affairs uot too delightful to Bradley.
But the captain's stay was a short
one. He was back on board early the
second morning and called the second
mate into the cabin.
"Well, Brad," he said, "I got m»
"Yes, sir," anxiously. "What wei»]
tbey?" ,'
" 'Bout the same aa tbe last."
"And—and wbat did you Bay?"
Captain Titcomb leaned over and &*■'.
liberately knocked his cigar ash Into
the center of a carpet flower. Then he
looked up quickly and answered, with
a quizzical smile:
"If you want to know, I told Williams Bros, to go to blazes, and, honesty bein' tbe best policy, you and,

Sailor Startled a Cultured Boston
Waitress With His Order.
A fine example of a deep sea appetite. Illustrated witb moving pictures,
was giveu ln u restaurant in Newspaper row the other evening. A hale and
hearty looking deep sea sailor moored
up to one of the near mahogany tables
and without hesitation started to
gauge his appetite as follows:
"I would like a nice tenderloin steak,
aome broiled mackerel and half a dozen scrambled eggs. You may also
bring me lf you will a mess of lettuce
and some sliced cold tomatoes."
The waitress with sixteen Inch waist

not to forget anything. Before sho

The latter decided to" Investigate.
With all sails set he tacked ap to tha
4eep sea sailor and anchored alongside.
"Have you given your order yet?"
be Inquired, trying to look unconcerned.
"I bave," waa the frank reply.
"What Is It?" Inquired the manager a
Uttle timorously.
Then tbe deep sea order was repeated, and on looking up and seeing the
blank look upou the manager's face
the sailor asked, "Well, can't I get
"You shall have It; you ahall hava
lt" said the manager, slightly embarrassed. '
"Didn't the girl think I meant lt all?"
aaid the sailor, blushing like a poppy.
"That Is all right," said the manager,
sailing away.
It was the girl's turn to blush when
ahe placed before her patron tbe full
order, with balf a dozen buns and
five potatoes. And as nearby patrons
glanced around they saw the deep sea
mac eating slowly, but surely, until
there did not seem to be seven crumbs
left of any part of the order.
"He should have had six potatoes Instead of five," said the waitress, "and
I'm sorry that he did not get them all."

British   Fishermen   Balk at the  Name
of Graham. '
.One of the most curious of British
fishermen's superstitions, the one which
perhaps to- this day bas the strongest
hold upon them, la that connected with
the name of Graham. No fisherman
will go to sea if he haa heard this
name mentioned, nor will he do any
manner of work upon that day. He
will refuse to sail ln a boat with any
one bearing the name, and a house
painter from Newcastle called Gra-
hum, who had been sent to do some
work ln one of tbe large houses, found
his life made so unbearable by the villagers that he Incontinently returned
to the town, leaving his work uncompleted. The women who bait the lines
ln the winter will unbslt every hook
and rebait the whole length—the labor
of hours—if they hear It mentioned. A
local tradesman bearing this unfortunate patronymic Is never referred to
Bave as "Puff;" another, an Innkeeper,
Ib known as "Lucky Bits." No rational explanation is to be found. On one
of the most intelligent fishermen lielng
questioned on the subject he laughed
the Idea to scorn. Why, his daughter
was married to a Graham. But, he
added, a strange thing happened two
years ago when he was off at the herring Ashing and had not been home
for some weeks. Having received n
letter at Shields to say that his son-in-
law was ill, he bailed a passing boat
which had come from the north, asking If they bad heard how Jack Graham was. "And, wad ye beleev't, ne
soonor had nu syed the words than
theor wes a crash, and the mast went
ower the side!" None of the crew
spoke to him for the rest of tbe duy.
"Do These Insects Sleepf" Is Not an
Easy Question to Answer.
The question, "Do spiders sleep at
night?" Is not easy to answer. I have
made a careful observation of the sleep
of ants, and that could readily be done
by watching colonies in their artificial
formicaries. It is almost Impossible
to deal with spiders ln tbe same way.
I would answer, however, ln general
terms that spiders sleep, aa all animals
do, and doubtless parts of tbe night
are spent In slumber. Many species.
however, prey on tbe night flying insects, and so must be awake in order
to catch their prey. If you will watch
the porch or outbuildings of your home
on a summer evening you will be likely
to see an orb weaving spider drop
slowly down on a single thread In the
gathering dusk of the evening. From
this beginning a. round web will soon
be spun, and either hanging at the''
center thereof or ln a little nest above
and at one aide is tbe architect with
forefeet clasping what we call the
"trap line" and waiting for some nlgbt
flying insect to strike tbe snare. In
this position spiders will sometimes
wait for hours, and It Is jnst possible
tbat they may then take a llttle nap.
They might easily do that and yet not
lose their game, for the agitation of the
web would rouse the sleeper, and then
It would run down the trap line and secure Its prey. Some species of spiders
do the chief part of their hnntlng at
night, and there are some who chiefly
hunt during tbe day; but, as a nile.
these industrious animals work both
day and night
Suffered  For His Chickens.
In London as far back as 1791 a city
brdinance was passed to suppress the
early momlng cries of the street hucksters. This law was so severe that a
person arrested twice for tbe same of-
fense could be imprisoned for ten
years. There is one record of a mnn
lingering ln prison for ten years.
When his time was up he waa asked

From the System—Both Kidneys and Bowels Are Restored To Action By
There are three ways, and tn.ee
only, by which the system can be
rid of poisonous waste matter—the
bowels, the kidneys and the skin.
The bowels are named first, because on them falls the greater part
of this work, and so long as they do
their duty there is seldom trouble
with the kidneys or skin as excretory
When the bowels fail, however, and
become sluggish and constipated
there is work thrown on the kidneys
which they have no business to do,
and which they cannot do for any
length of time without becoming deranged.   "
Now there is only one medical
treatment which recognizes this condition of affairs, and that is Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. This is,
so far -as we know, the only kidney
medicine which regulates the bowels,
as well as the kidneys, and thereby
removes the cause of trouble and
cures the mcst complicated cases.
You can scarcely find a case of kidney disease which does not begin
with liver and bowels, and which
could not therefore have been prevented by the use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills.
Thousands of people ar*; ready to
testify to the superiority ol Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills as a cure
for kidney troubles. The reason of
their efficiency is found in the;r action on the liver and bowels, as well
as the kidneys.
nil. fi, B. Dixon, McGillivary, B.C.,
I writes:—"I have found Dr. Chase's
| Kidney-Liver Pills to be exactly
what I need. Since 1897 I have been
on the construction of the _ Crow's
Nest Pass branch of the C.P.R., employed in all capacities and exposed
to all kinds of weather. I contracted
a Bevere cold, then pain across the
back, and owing to the hard fare
we sometimes had to live on, the
liver got sluggish and out of working
order. Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
seemed to be the very treatment I
needed and they have made me well
again. I also used Dr. Chase's Ointment for Eczema last summer. It
cost only sixty cents a box, but was
worth $60.   The cure was complete."
Mr. James J. Jenson,. Olds, Alta.,
writes,—"I have been troubled considerably with lame back, which I
suppose came from derangements of
the kidneys, and I have never been
able to find a treatment that was so
prompt aind effective in curing this
ailment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills. At two different times in my
life this preparation has entirely
cured me of this trouble, and of late
yeare I have found it unnecessary to
use any medicine whatever. I feel it
my duty to add to this statement to
the manv others which I see in recommendation of this excellent medicine."

Edward VII Arbiter of Peace
Great Britain, or, rather, Kig Edward VII, has taken the directorship
of European policy. He has become
the arbiter. That he works for peace
no one can doubt, but that his policy tends unceasingly to strengthen
the power and security of his own
country is still more certain. We are
thus led to beliece that in relinquishing his attitude of hostility, as much
personal as patriotic, toward William
II, he calculated in advance the benefits that would accrue to Ureat Britain.—Grande Revue.

Oldest Artificial Leg.
What Ib said b.v the British Medical
Journal to be the oldest artificial leg
in existence is in the museum of the
Royal College of Surgeons of England.
It was found in the tomb of Capua
and is described In the catalogue as
follows: "Roman artificial leg. The
artificial limb accurately represents the
form of tbe leg. It Is made of pieces
of thin bronze, fastened by bronze
nails to a wooden core. Two Iron bars,
having holes at their free ends, are attached to the upper extremity of the
bronze. A quadrilateral piece of Iron,
found near tbe position of the foot. Is
thought to have given strength to It.
There Is no trace of the foot, and the
wooden core had nearly crumbled
away, mat skeleton had Its walat
surrounded by a belt of sheet bronze
edged with small rivets, probably used
to fasten a leather lining. Thr«_e painted vases (red figures on a black ground)
lay at the feet of tbf skeleton. The
vases belong to a rather advanced
period in the decline of art (about 300

Good  Because   It Does Good
The common ailments, while few,
are liable to arise at any time. The
best-kept horses, and those receiving
the least care, are alike liable to tho
ordinary troubles, as spavins, ringbone, splint, curb, lameness, cuts
and bruises.
It is well for horseowners that
these diseases all yield td the same
remedy. This dependable remedy
which is very inexpensive is Kendall's
Spavin Cure. Even the most stubborn cases, which veterinaries- bave
failed to relieve, yield to Kendall's
Spavin Cure.
In the thirty years in wliich this
reliable remedy has been used by
farmers, stockmen, liverymen, and in
private and racing stables, it has
given complete satisfaction. Certainly those who own horses are not
consulting their own best interests if
they do not keep a bottle of Kendall's
Spavin Cure in the barn.
Dr. B. J. Kendall Co., makers of
this famous preparation, publish a
book entitled "A Treatise on the
Horse and His Diseases" which is
invaluable to those who want to keep
their horses well and save veterinaries' bil's. A copy may be obtained

Will ba Abolished Within Fifty Years
Says Scientist.
The abolition of consumption and
all epidemics within fifty years, is the
promise made by a well known scientist.   Prof.   E.  Ray  Lankester.
The wiping out of all epidemics-
think what it would mean! In the
fourteenth century 25,000,000 persons
died in Europe in the Black Death
epidemic. The great plague in London in 1S64 carried off 68,596 persons
out of a population of 460,000, and the
mortality probably would have been
at least twice as great if one-third of
the population had not fled to escape
the pestilence. In 1656 the plague
carried off 300,000 persons in five
months in Naples and vicinity, pass-
ing the following year to Rome, where
14,000 died, and to Genoa, where there
were 60,000 deaths.
Great progress has been made since
then ia sanitary science, and visitations of the plague now are rare. But
the death-roll of smallpox, cholera,
bubonic plague, yellow fever, diphtheria, and other epidemics, is an appalling proof of man's ignorance of
sanitary laws.
The weekly mortality statements issued by the Chicago department of
health show consumption and pneumonia almost invariably at the head
of the lists as the causes of the greatr
est number of deaths. A movement
of practically national extent has been
started to check the ravages of consumption, sometimes called the
"white plague." Special hospitals
and open air camps have been established for the treatment of consumptives, and the result's obtained thus
far have been encouraging.
One of the most startling theories
advance^ by Prof. Lankester is that
disease is a product of civilization.
Furthermore he points out that the
only wild animals which become diseased are those which come in contact with  domesticated  animals.
The savages, before they came in
contact with civilized men, were robust and strong, without disease, but
with the coming of missionaries and
traders came the diseases of civilization, which are rapidly wiping out the
savage peoples. He cites, for example, the measles, a. comparatively
harmless disease among civilized
races, which was introduced by Europeans with deadly results among the
natives of the South Sea Islands.
Prof. Lankester is of the opinion
that the causes and cures of all germ
diseases and epidemics can be discovered within fifty years if sufficient
support and encouragement are given
to scientific men who are giving their
whole talents and energies to investigations which promise to make mankind practically immune* to such diseases. He tells of examining in the
Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1905, the
minute spiral thread discovered in
that year by Fritz Schaudin, and called by him spirochaeta pallida, since
altered to spironema pallidum. This
organism has been shown to be the
cause of "the most terrible and widely
spread of human diseases, destroying
the health and strength of those
whom it does- not kill, and damaging
the lives of their children, so that
it has been said that this malady and
the use of alcohol as a beverage together, are responsible for more than
half the disease and 'early death cl
the mature population of Europe."

Ottawa.—The propriety of having
a day of national thanksgiving and
,of its observance by Anglican
church was discussed at length at
the   annual   deanery    conference at
.Ottawa yesterday. The discussion
was provoked by the address of Rev.
Canon Mugleston of Perth, who said
he would have the whole Institution
of national thanksgiving swept
away, as it served but to show the
thankfulness  of    the    people  as  a
.whole by their not going to church
and thanking God for His mercies.
If Thanksgiving Day could not be
served better than It was, said the
speaker, lt should be dropped as an
unholy thing.

Searchlight has reached our editorial desk, and is, if anything better
than before. This publication contained many valuable articles in the
various departments of modern
business and there are few business
men indeed who cannot profit by
the perural.cf its pages.
In addition to the practical articles on business there are several
items of interest purely from a literary and social stand point. It should
be a matter of pride to Canadians to
know that a magazine of this class
is being published in Canada and
that it is now no longer necessary
to depend upon Americans for a
magazine  of  business.

Last April a small company of
women met at the home of Mrs.
Smith, 130 Ninth avenue west, for
the purpose of organizing a "Woman's Christian Temperance Union" on Mt. Pleasant. Since, then
this union has steadily increased in
numbers and Interest, until It has
been fouud necessary to find a larger
place to meet in aud while somewhat loath to leave Mrs. Smith's
our President's cozy home, the
union Is glad that through the kind-
ncs of the Board of Management of
tho Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian
Church the Church parlor has beeu
secured, whero on the 2nd and 4th
Tuesday of each mouth the regular
meetings will be held. On Tuesday, tho 12th Inst., our regular
meeting was held at Mrs. Smith's
home which was profusely decorated with flowers. After butauoss was
over a social hour was spent when
dainty refreshments were served.
Some may ask, What is tho Mt.
Pleasant W. C. T. [T. doing? We
would answer, a band of Christian
women united to endeavor to help
llberato men and women from the
chain of intemperance with all its
catalogue of sin and vice, and bring
cheer and brightness to many lonely hearts. There are many departments of work and for each a faithful superintendent is appointed,
special mention beiug made of the
floral and literature department.
Tho union wishes to thank Mr.
Keeler publiciy, who so cheerfully
and generously donated cut flowers
oach week, enabling our superintendent to distribute as mauy as 110
bouquets at one time to the sick in
the General Hospital, and also to
thank the staff of the same Institution who so courteously received
the ladles and permitted them to
distribute same with literature to
all nationalities and creeds, many
thousand pages of litei-atmo in different  languages  being handled.
At this season when lt is hard to
secure outside bloom, the superintendent of tlio floral committee is
endeavoring to collect fands to
purchase potted plants (in bloom)
to place in different wards', and would
be very glad if any one who feels
thev would like to help ln this
work to do so by giving a little
change or plant to Mrs. MeCubbln,
the superintendent, o- iny white
rlbboner, which will be thankfully
received.. The union would be vary
glad to receive riew members or
have ladles Interested iu the work
visit and encourage them in the
work. Oh, the very sad, pathetic
tales so often" told to the heart of
the white rlbboner that If It were
not for the khoVlodge that "God.is
on the side of the right," they would
grow discouraged. May each white
rlbboner so wor1/. and pray thai In
the end they may hear the glad

Chief of Police Chamberlain In
an Interview with the daily press,
this week, has the following to say
of children  roaming the streets:
"I have never," said the Chief,
"seen a city where parents appear
to have so little control of their
children and are so wanting in a
Bense of their responsibility. Children that should be at home and In
bed are allowed to run the streets
till midnight. We constantly have'
parents coming here asking that the
police shall look after their children and send them home. It seems
to me that this Is not the business
of the police so much as that of the
parents, who should Insist that their
children stay at home in the evenings.
"Then again there are boys of
school age running about the streets
during school hours. It is not the
fault of the truant officer, because
it is impossible for one man to
cover a city like this, but it seems
to me that something should be
done to get the children off the
streets. In some cities this is left
to the police, and perhaps If two
special men were detailed, one for
the East End and another for the
West End, It would work well here
but we should need the extra men.'

Still a Judge
A painter was praising the other
day the artistic taste of John G.
Johnson, the famous Philadelphia
lawyer. Mr. Johnson has collected
one of the finest private galleries in
the world, and as a connoisseur he
lias few living equals.
"A young impressionist," said the
..painter, "got John G. Johnson to
vis't his studio last year. He showed
his latest picture, and tried to get Mr.
Johnson to buy it. But Mr. Johnson
would have none of it. He said politely that he thought the picture was
not good.
"This so annoyed the impressionist
that he let his temper get the better
of him.   He said hotly
" 'After a'l, Mr. Johnson, what do
jou know about pictures? You never
painted any.'
" 'My dear sir,' the lawyer retorted,
smiling, and rubbing his glasses with
his handkerchief, 'I know a bad egg,
iiut I never laid one.'"—Tit-Bits.

He adds: "I cannot speak too highly
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, as they
cured me after other medicine failed.
While I was living at Kingston, N.

its  most violent form.    I  was  eom-

medicines    advertised    to cure rheumatism, but with the same  result—
money wasted.    One day when hope
fliad almost gone a friend advised me
tto   try Dr. Williams' Pink   Pills.    I
"told  him  my  experience  with  other
'medicines   but   be   assured   me   that
'these pills would cure rheumatism, so
1_. sent for a  supply.    After using a
'few boxes  I was  able to  leave my

as well as ever I was, and have not
had the slightest touch of rheiimat-

Rheumatism is rooted in the hlood.
-tubbing the aching limbs with liniments and outward remedies cannot
possibly cure it. You must get the
rheumatic acid out of the blood and
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is the one
sure medicine to do this, because
they actually mnke new blood. That
is why these pills cure anaemia,
hendaches and backaches, neuralgia,
indigestion and the secret ailments
that make miserable the lives of so

Passing of the Manuscript
- The typewriter is Ireutly harming
Ihe business of manuscript collecting,
for In the future there wlll>be no more
manuscript, everything being typewritten.
The authors whose manuscript will
ultimately be worth collecting ull, with
hardly an exception, use the typewriter. Mr. Howells, Mr. Kipling, Joseph Conrad, H. G. Wells, Bernard
Shaw, Mary Will.ius [freeman, Mark
Twain—these authors' manuscripts
would a century hence be of great
value, but they will leave no manuscript behind them.
Some collectors propose to regard
typewritten copy us manuscript and to
collect It accordingly, But tney are ln
tlie minority. Their opponents point
out that the typewritten matter may
uot even have been typed by the author himself, but by his secretary or
wife, so tbat it has really no greater
value thau so much printing. — New

A little city boy nnd his sister
Dorothy were taken to the country

The two children were happy as
the day was long. In the late afternoon they watched the cows come
home, heard with delight the tinkling cowbells, and the little boy even
went to the barn to see the milking
At supper, just as Dorothy was
lifting her glass to her rosy lips, the

The Flagging Energies Revived-
Constant application to business is a
tax upon the energies, and if there
be no relaxation, lassitude and depression are sure to intervene. These
come from stomachic troubles. The
want of exercise brings on nervous
irregularities, and the stomach ceases
to assimilate food properly. In this
condition Parmelee's Vegetable Pills
will be found a recuperative of rare
power, restoring the organs to healthful action, dispelling depression and

There was a barber in South Bend,
who, having been out late the night
before, had a shaky hand the next
morning, and cut a patron's cheek
four times. After each accident the
barber said, as he sponged away the
b'ood, "Oh, dear me, how careless!"
and  laughed,  and  let it go at that.
The patron took all those gashes
in grave silence. But when the shave
wns over he filled a glass at the ice-
cooler, took a mouthful of water, and
with compressed lips proceeded to
shpke his head from side to side and
to toss it up and down.

In a recent number of the Delineator

"Don't buy poor material, for bnby's
clothes are often smiled and often
washed and should be strong enough
to look well after frequent launder-
"Don't make elaborate, fussy garments, wblcb make tbe baby look like
an animated plllowsham. They make
hard work for the laundress, much trouble for the mother and a great deal of
discomfort for the trxbj.
"Don't make more articles than are
neally needed. Baby grows very quickly and needs larger clothes every few
"Briefly, then, get good materials,
make neat, simple styles and get Just
the needful quantities. An ample list
will Include:
"Six night slips, six day slips, ont
fine robe, six barriecoats (plnninj;
blankets), three flannel skirts, three
white skirts, three pairs bootees, thirty-six dlnpers, three flannel bands,
three knit wool shirts with long
sleeves and seven bibs."
Washing Lace.
One girl who boards and does not
like to send fine pieces of lace to the
laundry has solved the problem by
washing the pieces lu her room and
placing them on top of a marble table
to dry. It Is tho same as stretching
them on a window pane, and they dry
as nicely and look as well as when
Ironed. The pieces are then placed In
a book, a weight put on them, and
there they are, fresh and clean, ready
ior use when wanted.
Drtnkinq  at  Meals.
Most physicians today will tell yon
never to take any Hquld, and least of
nil water, during meals. There arc
however, two sides to the question.
Those with a teudency tp gout oi
other diseases arising from excess of
uric ncld sbonld avoid liquids until
two hours, at least, after eating.
For those without such n tendency
there Is no hnrm In drinking n mod
ernte amount at tbe end of the menl.
There Is, therefore, sound reason
back of tho custom of keeping the
coffee for the last course. Even when
this prandial drinking ls permissible
one sbonld avoid excess. A little cold
wnter held In the mouth Is often Just
as refreshing ns if gallons of the liquid
had been consumed.
The great American fault—or one of
them—ls the" consumption of enormous
quantities of Ice water, which ls really
i deadly beverage and not fit for civilized man to drink. I emphasize the
•civilized," for no savage would do
anything so stupid as to chill and
paralyze the muscles of his stomach ln
ihe belief that he is cooling his skin.
The rule, then, ls a little water
If you are healthy and your stomach
Is normal, not too cold, and taken at
the end of the meal. And thus will
vou avoid the countless Ills to which
most drinkers during meals are heirs.

THERE wasn't a great deal to choose
^between them. Marysvllle Seminary was located near the mountains; Eliotford Seminary waB surrounded by beautiful lakes. Elolse
James was going to enter 'Marysvllle,
while Laura Ford was about to become
a student at Eliotford Seminary. Elolse
and Laura were Juliet's particular
chums. Now, wliich school should she
Juliet had by no means arrived at a
solution of this Important problem up to
this afternoon, when, with heels Impatiently drumming a tattoo, she awaited
the coming of Elolse and Laura. The
three were going to take one of their
customary trips together—the last before school terms would begin.
Moment after moment flew; still there
was no sign of either of her two friends.
To pass away the time Juliet began to
think again of the "seminary riddle," as
ehe called it. But even that she gave
up In despair, glancing anxiously at the
clock, as she said to herself, "1 suppose
I'll have to attend Marysvllle half the
time and Eliotford the other half."
Juliet was now beginning to feel a little annoyed at the non-arrival of Elolse
and Laura. All at once she leaped to
her feet, cheeks glowing and eyes sparkling. **
"That's exactly w.iat I'll do!" she ex-'
claimed, excitedly. "If Elolse comes
flrst, I'll go to Marysvllle, and If Laura
is first, Eliotford will be my choice."
Meanwhile Eloise and Laura were
having llttle troubles of their own. Both
lines of trolleys which they used had

how she had come to select this seminary, nor did Dick ever Imagine that he

would have happened had both Elolse
and Laura entered the room together.

Finical Children >
SIMPLY cannot eat turnips,**
announces the elderly matron. "I
have never been able to bear
them since childhood." "Dear Johnny
never eats any meat but beef," says
the fond mother, "and, of course, that
makes It rather tiresome for the rest
of us."   And so lt goes.
The habits we acquire ln childhood
stick to us through life, those of the
choice of food as well as any other
kind. It Is nonsense to give In to
every whim of a child, founded on a
moment's Imaginary like or dislike.
Slill, there ls a sweet medium, and In
many cases lt seems real cruelty to go
to the other extreme and force a child
to eat food which sometimes seems
actually to nauseate him. The best
plan is to let him alone and make no
fuss over his refusal. In time he will
probably come back to a reasonable
view ot things, or, if he does nut, a
little moral suasion later will cure
him soon enough.
Where a child ls actually over-particular and eats very few things Indeed, the flrst thing to do Is to ascertain the condition of his health. If
this Is good, there are still remedies
left. Absolutely prohibit eating between meals, and bar such things as
candy and cakes, lf he ls "*''' finical
force must be resorted to.
One lillle girl, however, has cured
by a course ut a cooking school. There
she was obliged to eat everything the
pupils cooked, and In time the pride
ot creation made her anxious that the
family should share the things she
""ide— when, of course, she had lo

*i it for boys as well as girls.

ALL alone lived the old musician.
No one ever came to his tiny
house, nor did he ever go far
from home. His sole delight was ln
playing, over and over again, the old
tunes of which he was so fond, snd
occasionally composing new ones.
It was only ln the evening that he
took any exercise: Then he sauntered
slowly along the river that flowed by
his house. Thus It happened that one
day, as he paced to and fro. he came
upon the queen of the fairies.
The queen appeared to be much worried, and seemed to be hunting closely
for somethlns.
Approaching her, the old musician
asked, "Have you lost anything?"
"Yes." replied she, "I have dropped
a key among these rushes. Inasmuch
as tt Is the key to the house where my
dwarfs and elves live, it is rather Important that 1 And it."
"Perhaps I may be of assistance ln
your search," politely suggested the uld
man. So welt did he look that the next
moment   he   was    able    to    place    the
precious key In the queen's hands..
Not a reward would the musician. ao»
cept, and back to his house he trudged,,
to play a few more tunes before going:
to bed.
For many  weeks the queen  hovered-
near the cottage ln the hope that she
might be able to do something for him,
but always she heard the musical tlnk- .
ling of the piano, and the ancient mu- .
slclan seemed to want for nothing.
One day, however, she heard no mu- .
sic.     Upon   entering   the    house   s..e
fouiyl  that,  through an uccldent, uoth
arms of the musician had been cut off.
"Oh, here ls an opportunity to show
my gratitude," thought she.
Immediately she sent for a company
of  llttle  elves.    Then  she   commanded.
them  to stand  by  the  strings  of  the
piano, and to each she cave the name ot
the key where he was stationed.
When  the   musician called  the  nnme
of a note,  the elf who stood by that
string played  upon It, so that the old .
man, by simply calling out the notes,
could  have   anything  whatever  played,
for him.   The music, too, was quite as.
fine as any he had ever been able to,

POOR HENRY had a hard time of
it. He lived with his uncle in a
little hut built amid the forest
trees. Henry's uncle was a woodchop-
per, und the lad, too, was obliged to go
out early In the morning and toil until
night, chopping wood.
Every night when he came home with
his bundle of wood he was beaten by
his uncle and often Bent supperless to
bed, for the uncle was a very crual
One day, while the boy was going
from place to place ln the forest chopping wood, he found himself standing
i.n the, edge of a beautiful lake, In the
mlrtC'e of which was a pretty lele.
1' ■ <membered that hie uncle had told
h'' m.    s  lltjle ' Island  was 'called  En-
chanted  Isle,  and  whoever   journeyed
there never returned.
Sitting down on the bank he dreamed
of wonderful treasures and mighty
dragons that might be upon the Island.
That night Henry received a more severe beating than ever before, inasmuch as he 'lent brought such a small
load of wood.
"Tomorrow I will go to the enchanted
Isle," he resolved; "I could hardly lead
a worse life there than I do here—and
if I should die lt will matter nothing."
Early next morning he crept silently
dowri the rickety ladder from his bet
ot straw In the loft. He stole to thi
lake, clambered Into the boat his unci:
kept there, and was soon gliding inward
the little Island.
Arriving there, he tied his boat fast
and climbed up the bank, his heart
beating fast  with hopes of adventure.
He had not gone far before he saw a
light. Keeping this always in sight, he
drew nearer and nearer. After a while
he heard a horrible crunching sound.
Peering through the thicket he saw
an immense and horrible giant munching upon bones, while others broiled in
a great pot.
Thoroughly frightened, the lad withdrew quietly and made all possible
speed back the way he had come.
But when Henry reached the edge of
the hike he was dismayed to see that
hip boat had been set adrift. The next
moment he was startled to hear a deep
voire at his elbow saying:
"Now tbat you can't return, perhaps
you'll do the service we ask of you."
Henry turned to see an ugly dwarf
standing beside him.
"This Island." explained the dwarf,
"once belonged to me. my relatives and
my friends, but tlie horrible giant has
come and we no lunger live in peace.
There wns once a hundred of us, now
there are but twelve. The giant hus
eaten the rest. And you have come to
deliver us!" .
Taking Henry by the hand, he led
htm Into a grent cavern, where the
dwarfs now hid, and spread before hlni
a fine meul.
When the lad had eaten his fill, the
dwarf brought forth a magnificent
sword and handed it to him.
"If you wound the giant ever so
slightly with this sword," said he, "he
will surely die. Slay him for us and we
will give you great reward."
Henry took the sword and went on his
way to where the giant still sat at

with his sword, and wounded the giant

The City Council has passed a bylaw for giving the City full control
over theatres. Aimed originally
for the suppression of Sunday evening concerts in theatres, it really
prohibits the use of theatres every
day in the week for any purpose other than dramatic or theatrical performances unless tho consent of the
Council Is first obtained. The one
exception made Is in the case of
"political or propaganda meetings,"
which mofy be held with the consent
of the Mayor.
