HE Thomas Doane, seen from
the wharf lu the faint light
of the street lamp, waa a
mere shape of blackness,
with masts like charcoal marks against
the sky and a tangle of ropes running
np to meet them. The windows of the
after deckhouse were Illuminated,
however, and as Bradley and the captain stepped from the wharf to the
rail and from thnt to the deck a man
came up the eompanionway from the
cabin and touched his bat
"Howdy, cap'n?" he said. "Glad to
see you back. Everything, runnin'
smootbdown borne?"
"Yup,"     answered     the     skipper;
"smooth as a smelt   How's It here?"
"Shipshape,".was the reply.
"Brad," he said, "this is Mr. Bailey,
.   the first mate.    He'll be your boss,
next to me, after tomarrer.  Mr. Bailey.
■ this is a new hand.   He hajsn't exactly shipped yet so ypu needn't break
him In tonight unless your conscience
troubles you too much."
*- -he mate held out a hand like a bam
CoVered   with   red  sole   leather,   and
Bradley shook It fearfully.
j   That night Bradley slept In the see-
vond mate's room off the cabin, but It
iwas understood that hereafter he wag
to bunk forward with the crew.   The
I next morning the captain took him up
; to a store on Commercial street, where
(a sailor's bag was purchased, for, so
the skipper said, nobody but a 'land-
i lubber took a trunk to sea.   It must be
; either a chest or a bag, and the chest
j would come later on.    Bradley trans-
; ferred such of his belongings as tbe
captain  deemed  necessary   from   the
I trunk to the bag, and the trunk Itself
jwas stored In the wharfinger's offlce
I until Its owner should call for it some
time in the future.
j The second mate, a thin young man,
with hair and face both a flaming red,
came on board In the morning, and the
crew were already there. Then a tug
took the Thomas Doane ln tow and
pulled her out of the dock and around
to another wharf, whore she was to
receive her cargo of lumber. And
from the moment when the tug's hawser was attached Bradley began to
! realized what Captain Titcomb had
meant by some advice which he gave
: the previous night.
It was "Here, boy, stand by to take
>a hand with that rope," or "You, boy—
what's your name—git a bucket and
swab up that mess on the deck. Lively! D'you hear?" The cook was a
i little Portuguese, and he delighted to
jhaze bis new assistant, bo when, at 9
o'clock or so, Bradley tumbled into his
bunk In the smoke reeking fo'castle
ihe was tired enough to drop asleep
even ln the midst of yarns and profanity.
The lumber, In the hold and on the
decks, was at last on board, and one.
morning the schooner, with all sail
j set, passed MInot's light, bonnd for
New York. The afternoon of that day
Iwas a dismal experience 'or Bradlev.
itfhe Thomas Doane was heavily load-
.ed, and sbe swashed aud wallowed
{through the good sized waves with n
motion so entirely different from that
,oi' tbe catboats whlcb the boy had been.
|Used to that be was most heartily and
miserably seasick.
But seasickness ana homesickness
Iiwere forgotten on the day of the won-
iderful sail through Long Island souud.
iThey passed schooners of all shapes
ami sizes, loaded till tbe decks were
scarcely above water oi- running light
,111111 high In ballast. Sharp nosed
iichooi——i, with lines like those of a
yacht, and clumsy old tubs, wltb dirty
anils, with patches varying from new
'white to a dingy gray plustered all
over them.
Night, and they were fast to a big
iwharf, with lights all about tbem;
illghts piled, row alter row, up to meet
]the stars; lights fringing the river or
jmovlng up and dowu and across lt;
Illghts In the arching curve of the
Ibridge tbat Bradley bad seen so often
!ln pictures; whistles sounding, bells
|rlnglng, distant shoutings and the never ceasing undercurrent of bum and
jroar that Is New York, breathing stead-
lily and regularly.
On the following morning Captain
'Titcomb left the schooner and after an
ihour or two returned with a sharp
eyed man, wbo smokeu continuously,
.although tbe wharf signs shouted In
ibIx Inch letters that no smoking waa
inllowed, and wbo said little, but loolc-
icd a great deal. Bradley learned from
Ithe cook, wbo bad been along tbe waiter front and, having fallen in with'
•Borne friends, wns mellow and Inclined to be confidential, that the sharp
.___.   man. was   Mr.   Williams., .the
Jm—'or member of the firm that owned
.the Thomas Doane and half a dozen
other coasters.
Mr. Williams and the captain had a
long conversation In the cabin, and
after lt was over the skipper was a bit
out of temper, ant! his orders were un-'
usually crisp and sharp.
On one memorable evening the captain, having previously whispered to,
Bradley to put on his "Sunday togs,"
sent the boy on an errand to a cigar
store near the wharf and told him to
wait there "for further orders." In a
little while he himself came Into the
store, commanded Bradley to "lay
alongside and snv nothln'," and the.
pair walked brlsk'y across the city to
the elevated railway station. Then
they rode uptown, had a six course
dinner In a marvelous restaurant
■where' an orchestra played while you
ate, and then went to the theater to
see a play called "The Great Metropolis." It was all real to Bradley, and
he thrilled, wept and laughed alternately.
On the way down In the elevated he
said, with a whimsical smile, "Brad,
I cal'Iate if the old maids knew I took
you to the theater they'd think yon
was slldln' a greased pole to perdition,
wouldn't they?"
Bradley smiled also as be answered:
"No, sir. I guess they'd think lf you
did It 'twas all rlgbt."
Captain Titcomb grinned, but he
made no comment on the reply. AH
he said was: "Well, Orham's Orham,
and New York's New York, and the
way things looks depends conslder'ble
on which end of the spyglass you
squint through. Anyhow, p'r'aps you'd
better not put this cruise down ln the
But Bradley did put it down ln the
log—that Is to say, he wrote a full account of this the greatest evening of
his life, In his next letter to the sisters. His habit .of scrupulous honesty
still clung to him, and he did not evade
or cover up. If he did a thing it was
done because be tbougbt lt right, apd
other considerations counted for little.
Occasions like the theater trip were
few and far apart. For the most part
Captain Titcomb was skipper and
Bradley was the "hand." With every
voyage, sometimes to Portland, to
Portsmouth, to Eoston, and, of course,
to New York, the boy learned new
things about his chief officer and to
understand him better. ,
He learned why lt was that the captain received so many presents and
was considered such a "slick article."
His acquaintance among seafaring
men and shipowners was large, and
he was always ready to do "little favors." Sometimes a captain Just ln
from a foreign cruise had hidden away
two or three pieces of silk or jewelry
or even, In oue case, a piano, tbat were
Intended for gifts to the folks at borne
and to the cost of which the custom
house duty would be an uncomfortable
addition. Then Captain Titcomb visited tbat ship, purely as a social function, and when be came away the
Jewelry or silk came with bim. In tbe
plnno affair It was bribery pure and
simple, wltb the addition of a little bullying of an Inspector who had made a
few slips before thut the captain knew
of. Petty smuggling like tbls Captain
Titcomb did not consider a slq worth
worrying about. There was a smack
of adventure In It and the fun of "taking chances."
Then, ns a bargainer nnd a driver of
sharp trades with shlpplug merchants
and others the captain wns an expert.
He liked, as he said, to "dicker," and,
besides, he wns always on the logout
to further the Interests of his owners.
Looking out for the owners was his
hobby nnd explained In a measure why
Williams Bros, were willing to pay
hlin more than they paid tbelr other
He wns a "driver" with his crews,
and every particle that was In the
rickety Thomas Doane he got out of
her. He was easy so long as a man
obeyed orders, but nt the slightest hint
of mutiny things happened.
The Thomas Donne passed and re
passed Cape Cod on ber short voyages,
and Bradley, with every trip, learned
more of the sea and the seaman's life.
At the end of his three montliB he went
-..me for n week's stay, but he hnd already made up his mind to return to
the schooner again. Captain Titcomb
hnd said that be was pleased wltb blm
and hinted at a steady rise In wages
and promotion later on. He was earning his living now—It cost llttle to live
—nnd be Bent home a few dollars to
the old maids every now and tben.
His flrst home coming was n great
event. The supper that flrst night was
almost equal In the amount of food on
ttu.t_b___._2 ;_jj_. dluner-with tl_i_.£_u>taln
at The New "York restaurant.^ In'fact,
Bradley, released from salt JUnk aud
fo'castle grub", ate so much that he suffered with the nightmare and groaned
so dismally tbat the alarmed sisters
pouuded on his chamber door, and Miss
Tempy Insisted that what he needed
was a dose of "Old Dr. Thomas' Discovery"—her newest patent medicine—
nnd a "nice hot cup of pepper tea."
There was uo music during the menl,
but tbe old maids talked continuously.
The hemming aud the shawl Industry
were bringing In some money, though
not yet what Miss Tempy anticipated,
and they bnd had a windfall In the
shape of a contribution from tbe Sampson fund!
"We're all the children father had,"
said the older sister. "The letter said
that there was money due us from the
fund and thnt we wns entitled to so
much every yenr, most a bundred dollars. Now, I knew nbout the Sampson
thing, but I thought 'twas charity foi
poor people, and Tempy and me have
got to livln' ou charity—not yet, I hope.
But it seems, 'cordiu* to the letters 1
hnd from 'em, tbat tbe money b'longed
to us, so"—
"So we get a check every once in
awhile," cried Miss Tempy. "And how
they knew and wrote jest at this time!
It's miraculous, that's what lt is—miraculous!"
Bradley thought of his conversation
with Captain Titcomb and the affair
did not seem so miraculous, but he
knew the captain would not wish him
to explain and so said nothing.

Smokestacks In Italy.
In Italy every important city, except
txtxlj Rdme, is uow surrounded with t
ring of chimneys In full smoke. The
government exempts from taxation a
zone of factories nround each town.
Tbe traveler's first view of Venice as
he crosses tbe lagoon comprises thirteen smoking chimneys; the moon, seen
from the Lido, rises from a filthily
thickened horizon; Verona has a bouquet of active chimneys near her station; Brunelleschi's dome at Florence
and the quaint tower of her Palazzo
Vecchio stand aloft ngninst a horrible
brown sky: the former orange gardens
of Genoa are deep in dirt, grime and
"fog" for the making of soap! When
Rome, too, has lost her limpid horizon
there is one Rome lover, at any rate,
who will go there uo more.—Exchange.
The Sun, the Moon and the Tides.
Most persons suppose that the moou
alone Is responsible for the phenomenon of tides, but tbt attractlou of tha
sun Is also un Important fuctor. Of
course the distance of the sun from tbe
earth Is unthlnkably greater than that
of the moon, but Its mnss Is so enormous that it haa a considerable tide pro
duetng Influence. The force which the
sun exerts Is the same on both sides of
tbe earth at the same time, the tide
producing force of the great orb being
about four-tenths tbat of the moon. At
the time of both new and full moons
the "wane spheroids produced by both
the sun and the moon have their axes
coincident"—that Is to say, tbe two
great orbs unite their energies on the
fluids of our planet, and as a result tbe
tides are higher than the average for
the remaining portions of the month.
These are the "spring tides." The
"neap tides" come in tbe time of tlie
moon's flrst and third quarter and are
not as great as the average, because
the moon nnd tbe sun are each working
in ODOOsltion to the othos.

A Compromise.
In t Jury trial In a small town not
many miles from civilization the rural
gentlemen into whose bands the fate
of the plaintiff was placed were so
stubbornly divided that they were some

asked by a friend what the trouble

Curious   Invocations   by   Famous   Historical Personages.
One of the ear'est records In history of n prayer lief ore bnttle ls that
of Chllderlc. king of Gaul, a pagan,
wno before going Into battle at Zuel-
plch. some 400 ears nfter Christ
prayed to the God of the Chrlstlnns to
help him to victory. His foe wns At-
liln. king of the Huns, and Chllderlc
vowed If God would give him the victory he wonld embrace the Christian
The prayer of a Hungarian officer
before one of the battles fought for the
Independence of Hungary in 1849 was
as follows: "I will not ask thee, Lord,
to help us. nnd I know thou wilt not
help the Austrians, but If thou wilt sit
on yonder hill thou shalt not be ashamed of thy children." This wns the
prayer of the "Fighting Bishop" Leslie before one of the battles fought in
Ireland: "0 God. for our unworthlness
we are not fit to claim thy help, but
If we are bad our enemies are worse,
and lf thou seeet not meet to help us
we pray thee help them not but stand
thou neuter on this day and leave tt to
the arm of the flesh."
The one offered before the battle of
Edgeblll by Sir Jacob Astley was,
"Thou knowest, O Lord, that I shall
be very busy this day, and If I forget
thee forgot thou not me," and then the
command followed, "March on, boys!"
As King Edward advanced with his
columns to Bannockbnrn be remarked
to his aids, seeing the Scotch on tbelr
knees: "See, tbey kneel. The rebels
are asking pardon," D'TJmpbrnvllle
was beard tp.remark: "Yes, but lt Is to
the King of kings. These men conquer
or die on this field."
Oliver Cromwell had public prayers
before going to battle on several occasions, as, for instance, previous to the
battle of Dunbar. It ls a curious fact
that the English prayer book contains
prayers, or at least one prayer, to bo
said before going into action at sea,
while nothing ls provided for use before engagements on land.
Many   Feathered   Creatures   Use   the
Same Ones Year After Year.
"That common expression for worth-
lessness, 'It has no more vnlue thnn
a Inst yenr's bird's nest'" said a bird
fancler, "is often far from correct
The majority of our birds do leave
their nests after raising a brood, but
many do not and their nests are used
through a succession of years. I have
known some birds to use tbelr nests
ten years In succession, and so persistent are they that many times the
female will return even after the nest
bas been robbed and the mate killed.
Among these users of perennial nests
are the wrens, some of the swallow
family, bluebirds, great crested flycatchers, some of the owls, -eagles,
chickadees aud some woodpeckers.
"Tbey repair to the nest each year
and often build It over. A little wren
has made its nest In a bole in a tree In
my garden and hns occupied it for the
last eight years. Each year It has piled
on new stuff till the hole Is almost filled up. Some sny that as soon as lt becomes crowded the birds will clean it
out. I know of a bluebird's nest that
hns been occupied for several years. It
Ib tbe same female year after year, for
sbe has two black wing feathers and

"Birds that build In exposed situations, like bnnghlrds, always build
anew each season, and some others
build anew for every brood. Some never build. They either lay In the nests
of other birds or ln the sand. The
eagle nnd the owl mnke a framework
of sticks ond slight repairs nre needed.
Many birds' nests thnt you find hnve
never been used. For Instance, the

Remarkable Growth of South Wales
Port—Has Grown From Village to>
Wealthy City — His Majesty Bestows Honor of Knighthood Upon
Workingman Mayor—Story of thai
Great Dock.
The King recently set the seal of hi*
approval on another phase of the remarkable development of Cardiff. The
South Wales port has a record of:
phenomenal growth. In less than 70>
years Cardiff has sprung from the status of a progressive village - to that
of a great, wealthy ,and remarkable
city. Its municipal life is notable.for
enlightenment and enterprise, and'the
spirit which animates its citizens gives
it a foremost place among the world's
communities. It was, therefore, only
in accordance with the best traditions
of the monarchy that King Edward
should visit this part of his dominion,
and by his presence encourage his
subjects in pursuit of the objects
which they have in view. The new
dock was essential to tbe development
of Cardiff, and is the coping-atone of
the wonderful edifice of engineering
skill which has made it so important
in maritime commerce. Cardiff's record in the last three generations is
wonderful; b'-' the future, no doubt,
has further t..-imphs in store for the
metropolis . of South Wales. The
King's act in knighting the workman-
Lord Mayor of Cardiff was characteristic of His Majesty, who disregards class distinction in honoring-
public service.
Sir William Smith Crossman, the
second Lord Mayor of Cardiff, who recently received the honor of knighthood, is Devonian by birth, having
been born at Tavistock in 1864. He
was the eldest of the eight children,
of Mr. John Crossman, a "captain"
of a copper ore mine. Having servv'dl
his apprenticeship as a stonemason in
some granite works near Gunnislake,
Cornwall, he became engaged on some
public works. In 1884 he came to Cardiff to take part in the construction
of the Roath.
For years he has been prominently
identified with trades unionism in
South Wales. A member of the Cardiff Board of Guardinns, he was el?ct-
ed to the Town Council five years ago,,
and now acts as chairman of the Property and Markets committee.
The opening of Alexandra dock
marks a new era in the history of
the Welsh coal trade, which owed ita
inception to the second Marquis of
Last year 45,000.000 tons of coal were
turned out,"and the congestion of Cardiff docks was so great that many
vessels had to wait quite a week before they could secure a berth under
one of the loading tips. This produced an agitation among Cardiff shipowners and coal exporters for the
completion of the new dock.
The Alexandra dock hns a grent<y
depth of water over the sill than arty
of the other Bute docks, and is designed specially for the accomm-"*n-
tion of the large type of vessel. Tho
length of the dock is 2.550 feet, and
the width 800 to 1.000 feet, and there
is a quayage of 6.V00 feet.
The most important ol shipping appliances is the Lewis Hunter crane,
of which Sir Wm. Thomas Lewis is
joint inventor. Half n century ngi>
it would have been regarded as splendid work to Bhip seven hundred tons
of coal into a vessel in one day. Now,'
by using the Lewis Hunter cranes, as
much as ten thousand tons can bo
put into one vessel in the course of
24 hours. Often six hundred tons of
coal are tipped into a vessel in an

That names of places in England
frequently are not pronounced as
spelled is proved by the experience
of two cyclists who were going from
Claeton to the old village of St.
Osyth. "Are we right for St. Osyth?"
they nsked a laborer. But a blank
look met the question; he had never
"heerd" of no such place." A second wayfarer interrogated was also
ignorant. Then came a third. A
scratched head, a puzzled look ond
then the dawn of intelligence. "Aye,

It Is a Liver Pill—Many of the
ailments that man has to contend
with have their origin in a disot-

great many liver regulators now
pressed on the attention of sufferers.

•The Advocate :
- Our attontion has been drawn by the
Press of the Oity to the Market Site that
the people themselves decided by vote
should be on False Creek, where the
wharf is now being built. It is past
iny understanding what right anybody
'has, under our present system, to try
and over-throw the wishes of the
people as expressed at the poll.
For instance, supposing about the
middle of February or the first of
March somebody should get up an agitation to put the Mayor or Council as a
whole out of offlce, whom the people
themselves had elected to offlce only a
few weeks before, and that, without any
.apparent reason. All self-respecting
.citizens wonld look upon such action as
dangerous, aud rightly so.
Now, Mr. Editor, if Continuity of
Policy is a good thing, which we all
pgree that it is, and whioh a great many
shrewed observers consider the one
thing that makes Municipal Govern
went in the Old Country a success,
why is it that our Council is enter
taining propositions of changing the
Market Site ? To my mind the present
site is the best, and I consider the
policy or the attitude of the present
Conncil is wobbly to Spy the least.
I would like to ask tbe Couueil to

One dared to die. In a swift moment's space.
Fell in War's forefront, laughter on
his face.
Bronze tells hia fame In many a market-place.
Another dared to live.    The    long
years through,
Felt his slow heart's blood ooze, like
crimson dew.
For Duty's sake,   and smiled.   5_nd
no one knew.
By Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)'.
Thus between desiring and attaining,
all human life flows on throughout. The
wish is, in its nature, pain; the attainment soon begets satiety, the end was
only apparent;- possession takes away
the charm; the wish, the need, presents
itself under a new fo—n; when it does
not, then follow desolateness, emptiness,
ennui—against which the conflict is just
as painful as against want. That wish
and satisfaction should follow each
other neither too quickly nor too slowly,
reduces to the smallest amount the suffering wliich both occasion, and constitutes the happiest life.

And a dollar in addition
Buys you girl a change to go.
A dollar buys a brier;
It buys you a winter rose;
It won't put out a fire,
But it buys a pair of hose.
A dollar buys for Alice

A dollar buys you malice
Wheu you loan it to a beat.
A dollar buys the sfory

It buys election glory,
Because it buys a vote;

With all it's buying powers

The Function of an
is first to draw attention and to leave a favorable
and as far as possible a lasting impression.
The first nnd principal object of a very great deRl of advertising
is not directly that of selling goods, but of establishing a worthy
fame—_ recognized reputation—to ln.ilie the goods and the house
known. Customers mnst come with sonm idea of the goods tbey
seek, the more knowledge the better. With confidence inspired
by effective advertising, it is then np to tlie salesman to do the
rest—to make good by courtesy nnd a skillful presentation of the
wares which should be up to all that has been advertised.
THE ADVOCATE is the best advertising
medium for reaching Mt. Pleasant People—to

The Round Robin.
The "round robin" bad Its origin several centuries ngo ln France.
It was used there by officers of the
army as a method of expressing their
dissatisfaction with tbe course of the
king or his ministers. By signing in a
circular form the leaders ot the movement could not be ascertained and
singled ont for punishment.
The first Instance on record of tbe
use of this form of protest ln the navy
occurred In 10-5. At the Instigation of
the Duke of Buckingham, the king's
favorite, an English fleet, under Admiral Bennington, was dispatched tn
Rochelle to assist in tbe coercion of the
Protestant subjects of Louis XIII. of
France. But tho English tars. In common with their fellow countrymen,
looked with fnvor upon the resistance
of their coreligionists ngninst the proselyting zeal of the French king, nnd
they signed a "round robin" expressing their determination not to fire a
shot against them, and without waiting for a reply they weighed anchor
and brought their ships back to England. Tbe admiral, however, received
a peremptory order to return to
Dieppe, whereupon the whole of the
crews quitted the ships without further parley.—London Standard.

; ART scanned the letter excited-
"Of  all  that's  wonderful!
Jessie's coming to visit us for
several weeks.   I suppose she'll
have a whole wardrobe of old-fashioned
country   clothes,   too."
"Por shame!" cried Harry, Indignantly. "I'll have you Know she's lots
jollier than any girl around here, even
if she does come from Country Forks."
"Did 1 say anything about her, stupid?
Don't I know she's the sweetest little
girl   there   ever   was?"   Mary   retorted.
Just the same," she adaed, "I'm sure
she'll come rigged out In the same togs
her grandmother  wore."
But if Mary were at all ashamed of
her cousin, she certainly didn't show lt
when she met her at the railroad station. Jessie really looked so nice and
fresh and cheerful that no one but
would have been glad to own her for
a cousin. And in the matter of clothes,
there was also a surprise in store for
Mary, as Jessie was quite stylishly
dressed. Jessie spoiled it all, however, by saying, in return to Mary's
compliment, that mother had "followed
a city pattern pretty closely."

"Indeed, I have," quickly replied Mrs.
Graham, who was an invalid; "there is
no one like her to relieve my pain and
g.ve me nice little attentions."
Truly, everything was mueh more
pleasant since Jessie had come. Her
uncle's slippers were always ready for
him, and she aided h^s comfort in a
great many litt.e ways. Bobby and
Janet, the twins, who were always
fighting one another, grew almost
peaceable. Bobby, in particular, had
been left quite to himself ever since
Mrs. Graham had become an invalid,
and lt was very nice to have some one

and to sympathize with him at all
times, it was something he wasn't

Heretofore, wiien Harry lost a button from his clothes or .had a tear to
be mended, he waited his sister's convenience. He was decidedly grateful now
that Jessie undertook to do such mending even without his requesting It.

When this work was done he lenned

lt doesn't take much to tire one. He
was a dwarf, you' know, and, as son of
a shoemaker, was kept busy from morning to night mending boots and shoes.    .
"Oh, dear, I wish night was here!"
he groaned. Then, as no one was looking, he softly opened the door for a moment. It was so Inviting outside that
before he knew it he was strolling along
by, the  roadside.
He began to think of all his troubles.
"I  do wish   I was  big!"   he cried.
All   at   once   there  stood   before   him
nlng to her cousin for advice upon all
occasions, even ln matters regarding
dreBs, for she soon found that Jessie
had good taste in such things in spite
of the fact that ehe came from a wee
country village.
It lacked but a few daye of the time
Jessie was to return home. "By the
way, Jessie," said Mary, "I've arranged
with some of the girls to make up a
party to go to the theater this afternoon."
"I'm sorry," replied Jessie, "but I've
promised to take the twins to the Zoo."
"Nonsense! the little beggars can go
any time. You'd be bothered half to
death with them."
But Jessie still Insisted that ehe would
hold to her promise, and Mary left in
a huff.
That afternoon, ae Jessie was leavinii
the house with the twins, she was met
by Harry, Just returned from some adventurous trip.
"Hello! Where are you going?" ho
"To the Zoo!" the twins snouted together.
"Well, I'll be swls—ed!" was the surprised exclamation.
For a moment he stood there, scratching his head and seemingly in deep
"I say," he finally asked in some em-
bn-rassmbnt, "would you care to have a
chap go with you?"
"O". course not" replied Jessie, although the twine protested strongly.
So Harry went along.
You can't Imagins what a fine time
they had. From tint day on the twins
had' a new regard fer Harry, and he, in
turn, no longer teased them as he had
been accustomed to  lo.
As for Mary, she could hardly believe
that Harry had bc-ien with Jessie-
Harry, who had always scoffed at such
excursions! She had not at all enjoyed herself at the t'-'ater; she had a
bad headache, and she Bald a few bitter
words that wounded Jessie deeply and
angered Harry to such an extent that
he wouldn't speak to his sister for a
week. But when Mary thought it all
over, she told Jessie she was sorry for
what she had said, and the two "made
up," so there was really no harm done.
At last Jessie had gone. One and all
felt her absence, nor could they see
how they could do without her., The
twins were Inconsolable, grandma's eyes
looked suspiciously red, while Harry
became wonderfully meek and gentle
even to his sister. Indeed, each one had
been taught something during her brief
stay and each was the better for it.
"No, she's not at all like city folks,
and I'm glad of It!" Hairy had said
with enrpnasis, nor did Mary venture
to contradict him.

He held a bottle toward Hans. "Take

Imaginable, "and whenever you feel

Before Hans could recover from his
astonishment the manikin had disappeared.    Only  the bottle remained,  to
fhow that the whole thing had not been
a dream.
The little fellow looked at the bottle
doubtfully. "It will do no harm to try
It. anyway." thought he. So he tisted
a few drops.
Immediately he felt himself growing
a little larger. After all, the manikin
had spoken the truth.
Hans now turned his steps homeward.
When he reached the house he carefully
hid the bottle, nor did he explain what
had happened when his mother, amazed
at his sudden growth, asked him what
he had been doing. He was resolved
that it should be his sec*tj_, and his

observing this, simply gave him more
shoes to mend. Then, too, now that he
had grown larger, his appetite had
grown also, and, as his family were
poor, he couldn't get nearly enough to
ent to satisfy him.
Without sufficient food Hans soon
found liim elf growing as tired as
ever  he  had  been.
"I'll drink some more from the bottle," said he to himself, "and then
I'll be able to do the work without
feeling so tired."
He drank, and at once he became
But again he was given more work
to do, and again did he grow tired

lold me how she had shown her n<_ v
parasol to tho swans.
It was a beautiful parasol, so that it
was but natural that Judith should
wish to show lt to her favorite pets,
especially Whitey.
Raising the pretty parasol, Juuith
proudly strolled down to the pond.
She thought It funny, as she neared
the water, that Whitey or the other
swans did not swim toward her, as
usual.     But   she   was   more   surprised
A Novel Teapot
MANT persons object to the common Chinese porcelain teapots,
.-.nd yet are not prepared to use*
their silver service ,for every day. To
these tlie latest teapot, imported from
England, will come as a boon. It Is
extremely beautiful, and. while alinoHt
as expensive as silver, will not need
the frequent polishing of lhat metal,
the chief obstacle In the way of Its
dally use. It ls of clear glass, with
simple bandings of either gold or silver.
the less expensive metal giving much
the better effect. The Inside fittings,
' tbe strainer, etc.. are also of the chosen
gold or silver, and the combination Is
both novi and attractive. Another advantage which this teapot boasts Is
that, since it Is transparent. It Is uasy
to ascertain the state of the conients.
to, tell how much lea or wilier is- ie..,
and how hot each still remains
Special p,ass stands, rimmed with gold
or silver, come for these teapots, und
complete the general eiisemuie. They
are in a way Jointed, as. of course. Ihe
strainer and cup may be removed, and
the handl- also, when It happens lo be
of metal nnd not of glass. The whole
Is so charming that one involuntarily
wishes for cups and saucers of tiie same
sort to make up a pretty afternoon tea
service. A.nd perhaps these, too, will
come In time.
Though -e silver bandings protect
this teapot from Injury, still it Is well
not to let It (ill too often into the hands
of the maid, who may break ur crack It
by pouring hot water Into It. lt might
be well to imitate the good old English
custom, and let the mistress herself
wash and enre for the delicate china and
glass, which the average ..erva'ii "honk)
ne"er touch.
when she called, "Whitey! Whitey!"
and Whitey merely stared curiously
Then she guessed what the matter
was. Closing the parasol she laid it
carefully on the ground, and then came
again to the edge of the pond.
Whitey  at once    swam    Joyously   to
meet her. Following him closely came
tho other swans.
You see, they didn't know her when
she had the parasol!
"Silly goose!" Judith exclaimed,
scratching her pets head. He wa,n t
a goose at all, hut he wan silly, just
the same.   Don't you think so?
Playing "Diabolo" in Paris
DID you ever try to make a spool run up anil down a string tied i, -.
tween two sticks, and thon throw the spool up in the uir, oatcli,
it aa it falls—twisting the strings around it—and send it spin .
_    _■•_.• nm«_a,x>ve your head again?   When you do, you'll find out ho.,
hard it is to play "diabolo." or rocket-ball.
Al! the French boys and girls are now playing rocket-ball in the park<«i
and gardens of Paris. They tose the spool from one to the other with v
aayi thnt you would envy.
Really, it is much harder to play tban tennis, and thoie of ns wl .
woui.. ...ugli nt a little French boy trying to play baseball would probab'v
hnd that m "diabolo" ho could win from us with an ense u_o<-t, disheartening. THE ADVOCATE, VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA.
