CHAPTER V,
"I did not mean to speak crossly
to you, my dear," said Judge Kneeland, his voice a little husky and
tremulous, "I quite forgot myself
for a moment; but, speaking seriously, Olive, I wish you to pay hoed
to my words; do not wasts your
sympathy upon Roger Glendenning;
he is entirely unworthy of it. I regret keenly that I ever allowed bim
to cross my threshold."
Olive did not answer; this troubled
him.
"Did he ever speak to you upon
the subject of love, Olive?" he asked, abruptly. "I ask the question in
all earnestness; you may answer it
or not just as you please; still, it
would be better if you were to make
a confidant ol me, my child."
"Would it make you more lenient
with him, papa?" asked the girl in
a low, shaking voice, eager with tremulous emotion.
"It will do no harm to try and
see," returned the old judge, evasively.
The girl dropped her brown head,
that her father might not read the
pain in her tear-dimmed eyes as
she replied, falteringly:
"He never told me so in words,
papa, but I am sure he does love
mc, and that he would lay down
his life for me if need be; his every
wistful glance, the trembling of his
hands when they touch mine, his
great joy in being where I am, tell
it all too plainly. Nannie noticed it;
so did all the rest of my girl
friends."
"And do you care for him, Olive?"
asked the judge, nervously.
The girl hid her face in her hands
and burst into tears.
"Must I toll you that, papa?" she
faltered, sobbingly.
"Yes," roturned the judge, sternly;
"tell me the truth."
"I—I—do care for him," sobbed
Olive. "I never knew how much until
—until—to-day. I—I—care for him so
much that I would do anything In
the wide world to reinstate him in
your favor. Won't you forgive him
for my sake, papa?" she sobbed,
holding her arms out to him imploringly. "I know, I am sure it is all a
terrible mistake, and if he has an
opportunity to speak, he will prove
it to you. Now, if it had been his
brother Oscar who had been accused,
I would not have been so amazed—
so dumbfounded—but Roger! oh, never, papa!" she cried vehemently,
"never!"
"Stop! don't make such a dramatic scene in'public view!" exclaimed
her father, hastily; "you will attract
all the servants to the windows to
find out what is going on."
Sho came nearer to him and looked up into his angry face.
"You have never ln all my life
refused me any favor that you could
grant me, papa," she sobbed; "now
do not turn from me when I plead
with you to spare poor Roger."
"I will hear no more!" declared
the judge, stormily, turning on his
heel; "you shall not interfere—the
law must tak« Its course. Vniir
words can not influence me to compound a felony."
He entered the house, and took
his seat at the luncheon-table.
For tho first time in her life, Oliv*
did not join him there. It seemed
terribly lonely to have no bright,
girlish face opposite him, nnd no littlo white hand toying among tbe
china cups.
It had always been a great delight
to him to forget all his cares in listening to Olive's girlish nonsense
and gay laughter. The room seemed
gray and desolate. Ho would not
have hod that little tilt with his
Olive lf tho handsome young private
secretary had not come between
them, he told himself bitterly, and
his heart grew harder than ever toward the young man who had such
a hold upon his daughter's heart.
"Young girls of Olive's age are
very romantic," he muttered;
"there's only one thing to do. and
that is to set my foot down firmly
in this Glendenning affair. She will
grieve for a time, then it will all
blow over, and, woman-like, after he
is out of sight she will soon forget
him. My summer vacation is near at
hand, and I will take her to Saratoga, Bar Harbor, or some fashionable watering-place; she may tnke
her friend Nannie along if she likes."
And the old judge went out of the
house, smiling grimly at his own
diplomacy and clever plan to nip in
the bud his daughter's infatuation.
Never had those about the Supreme Court beheld the judge in so
harsh a mood as he was that afternoon, as those interested in the several cases brought up before him
discovered to their cost.
The first thing he did was to attend to the making out of all necessary papers in his charge against
Roger Glendenning, whom he intended to prosecute to the full extent ol tho law-
■ rre aid not g—.nee out of the window when the conveyance drove up
to the Supreme Court Chambers to
take Glendenning, who was in charge
of an officer, to the Tombs, nor did
Roger Glendenning raise his heavy
eyes to the window.
"It does not matter what becomes
of me," he said, gloomily, to his
companion, as the door of the car-
1 riage closed after them and they
seated themselves. "Life is a blank
to me. I only wish to Heaven that I
could go mad, and thus find temporary release from my miserable, torturing brain!"
For some moments they rode on in
silence, Glendenning gazing indifferently from the window at the
throngs of passers-by. This was the
last time for many a long and weary
year that he would drive through
those crowded streets, and see the
faces of free men and women and
little children hurrying to and fro,
looking up bright and gladsome
through the sunshine at him. He
wondered if the brother for whom
he was making so terrible a sacrifice
would have done the same for him,
had he been in his place. It would
all have been different had there been
any chance for him to have won '
Olive Kneeland'e love; then, though ]
Oscar had been a thousand times his
brother, he would not have taken
upon his own shoulders a felony
that Oscar should have atoned for.
Suddenly he clutched at the officer's arm, straining his eyes toward
the opposite pavement.
"You can do me a favor if you
will," cried Glendenning, hoarsely;
"it is the first and last that I will
ever ask of you."
"If I can conscientiously do lt
without conflicting with my duty, I
will do it," answered the other.
"What is it?"
"Draw up to tho opposite pavement and let the carriage stand there
for three minutes. Ah! three minutes is not much out of a life-time.
Do vou see that young girl walking
swiftly down the street? That is
Miss Kneeland; she is going to her
father's ofiice; she will turn that first
corner. Let me mako my words a
prayer to you; draw rein, and let
me sit here and watch her out of
sight,  will you?"
Those few words told the officer an
eloquent story; he could read plainly
what they meant.
No, three minutes of happiness was
not much to take out of a life-time,
and he would feel the happier for
knowing that he had gratified him;
it was the last kindness that he could
ever do for this young man who had
shown him such compassion in other
days. He gave the order quietly.
Roger Glendenning sat quite still,
with his strong hands clinched tightly together. He quite forgot the other's presence, forgot the whole world,
remembering only the young girl, so
near him and yet—ah, God!—so far,
who was disappearing so swiftly from
his strained gaze. His whole soul
seemed concentrated in  that gaze.
His lips moved, and his companion
heard him mutter, brokenly:
"I may never see her again in this
world, and I love her so! but it is to
make her happy that I am undergoing all this now."
The last of tho sentence was so indistinct that his companion was not
quite sure he had heard aright, but
he certainly understood this much,
that Roger Glendenning hopelessly
loved the old judgo's beautiful young
daughter.
At that Instant Glendennlng uttered a low cry.
"Dare I ask one more favor of
you?" he asked, huskily. "Sho dropped ono of tho rosebuds that was
lying on her broast. See! it lies in
the dust of tho road-sido. I—I—
would give half of my life to havo
that rosebud. I would take it with
me Into my captivity. I would cherish It while my life lasted, and the
prayer would be on my lips that thoy
would bury it with me when I die.
Would you mind if I were to get it?
Surely you can trust me. I will not
be out of your sight, and only a few
steps from you. Be kind to me. Will
you get It, or allow me to do so?"
Was tho officer mad, or did heartfelt pity for the young man blind his
reason and make him forget for one
brief moment his sworn duty, not to
allow him out of his custody for even
an instant?
"You mny got the flower if you
prize it so very highly," ho responded,  gently; and a full  realization of
i hat he had dono did not fully oc-
:ur to him until Glendenning, who
ngcily sprung from the vehicle, was
'linost across the road to tho op-
ii—ito pavement. Watching him enviously, he saw him stoop and recover the dust-covered but!, and turn
his face toward tho  vehicle again.
Then, all in a moment of timo, a
horrible event happened. There wns
a fearful explosion within the building directly in front of which the
carrince stood, nnd in an instant the
wildest scene of terror reigned that
pen could ever picture or mind conceive. The air was thick with blinding smoke and hurling bricks, the
shrieks and groans of the panic- I
stricken pedestrians, the mad shouts I
for help, the terrible roar of a seething fire that had ignited all in an
instant, and over all the ring of the
fire-engine bell and the plunging of
horses' hofs. A very pandemonium
reigned where but a moment bofore
hnd boen the business street of a
city, over which the afternoon sunshine slanted smilingly.
The    officer,    William   Blake,   was
thrown unconscious to the bottom of .
the carriage.   One of tho horses   was |
killed outright by  a flying bowlder, i
the other was maimed  and trampled
over   by the    throng   in    their mad
flicht for life.    Kvon the driver of the !
vehicle deserted his post in the wild
confusion, threw the reins to his dis-
abled horses, and fled into the midst
of the terrified crowd.
It  was  one   _f    the  most horrible
holocausts that was ever recorded In
the annals of a great oity.   For three j
days  the   fire-fiend    held  sway,  and '
block after block    was swept before
it like chaff before the hurricane.        |
For three    days body  after   body ,
was taken from the ruins,  and many I
more   were  still    missing;  but     the
heat  was so     intolerable  that     tho
workmen made but slow progress in i
their searching.
The first two names to head the
list of the missing were those of
Officer Blake and Roger Glendenning.
HE DIDN'T BUY.

number, but just which of the charred remains were theirs it was bard

linking; Gnu After Mow In*.
Some persons advise raking after
each mowing. I do not, because the
clippings drop down Into the grass and
form a mulch, which I consider of
great benefit. They also help to fertilize the soil. The lawn that ls not
mowed often enough will not look well
after you have been over lt with the
mower, because there was growth
enough to partially hide the sward upon which It falls. This will wither and
turn brown in a day or two and greatly detract from the beauty of the lawn.
But if you keep your lawn well mowed
—and that means going over It at least
three times a week In ordinary seasons—the amount clipped off at each
mowing will be so slight that there
will not be enough of it to show. Let
the knife blades be set high enough to
leave at least two inches of the foliage.
The Coyote,
One of the most interesting wild animals ts the prairie wolf, known In
Mexico as the coyote and ln the old
world as the jackal. It Is thirty-six to
forty Inches long, witb a tail measuring sixteen to eighteen Inches In length.
The color Is usually a dull, yellowish
gray on the back and sides, with black
cloudings. The underpart and Inside
of the limbs are of a dirty white tint
The voice ls a sort of snapping bark,
and for tbls reason the animal ls
known as the "barking wolf." It Is
found on the western plains, extending from Mexico to latitude 55 degrees
north. It hunts In packs and is very

"A fellow never realizes what a woman's articles of wear cost until he Is
engaged to be married," observed a
young business man. "This fact was
Impressed on me with particular emphasis. I happened to meet on lower
Broadway a college chum, now ln business and In moderate circumstances,
who has just become engaged to a nice
girl, also without an Independent fortune.
" 'Com? in here with me, Jack,' he
said, stopping in front of a well known
shop. 'Tomorrow Is Minnie's birthday,
and I want to get ber a remembrance.'
" 'What ls it going to be?' I asked as
we made our way tn.
" 'Well,' he replied, 'I've sent her so
much candy and flowers and stuff ot
that sort that I think I'll vary It with
something useful this time. Tve been
thinking of some nice handkerchiefs.'
"I agreed that handkerchiefs were
always a satisfactory possession, and
we wended onr way to the proper
counter.
"T want to look at women's handkerchiefs—something ratber nice, suitable for a gift' said Jim, my companion.
"The saleswoman produced a box of

"When the answer came, 'Twelve

that the price named was for the entire

"'Very well, I'll take a dozen,' he
answered, with a care free tone which
made the saleswoman look at us a little curiously.
" 'Excuse me, but how many did you
■ay?' she asked.
" 'One dozen. There are a dozen In
the box, are there not?'-
" 'Yes, sir,' returned the young woman, with an Impressed air. 'One hundred and forty-four dollars, please,' she
said, making out the slip.

new Emery Ia Quarried,
Emery comes from the island ot
Nazos, in the eastern Mediterranean,
whence tt has been exported for the:
last two centuries or more. The beds'
are ln the northeast of tbe Island, the'
deposit descending into some of the'
neighboring Islands, the emery being'
found In lenticular masses, resting on
layers of schist ln limestone, almost
Identical with Parian marble, the finest marble known, which comes from
tbe Island of Paros, close by. There
are about 300 men engaged In tbe
trade, all of whom have to be married
before tbey are admitted to tbe fraternity. Tbe material Is much too hard
to be dug out or even blasted. Great
fires are lighted round the blocks till
the natural cracks expand with the
beat, and levers are then Inserted to
pry tbem apart.
This system Is continued nntil the
blocks are reduced ln size to masses of
a cubic foot or less, and they are then
shipped as lf they were coals. There
are said to be 20,000,000 tons yet available at Naxos. It ls one of the hardest substances yet known, coming next
to the diamond, and among Its crystalline forms known to the jewelers ar*
the ruby and tbe sapphire.
Llchtl-a a Pipe.
A smoker wbo started to light his
pipe on tbe street turned to bis companion and said: "A man told me the
other day bow to light an ordinary
match In a high wind. Let me show
you."
There was a stiff breeze blowing.
The demonstrator took from his pocket
an envelope, struck a parlor match on
a rail and shielded lt Inside of tbe envelope, facing tbe wind as he did so.
The match burned with hardly a flicker, and the man wbo held It puffed on
bis pipe wltb great satisfaction.
"That's a trick worth knowing," he
remarked. "Here's another. Sometimes you get a spark on top of your
pipe which the most rigorous pulling
falls to spread over the surface of the
tobacco. In that case take a piece of
paper of almost any kind and hold lt
down ln tbe spark. This will spread
the flre and give you the sort of light
a pipe  smoker  wants."
An Arttat'a Feat.
One of the most remarkable and most
artistic of twenty-four hours' record-
stands to the credit of Sir Edwin Land-
seer, who had promised a picture for
tho spring exhibition of the Royal
British institution in 1845. On the day
before the opening he was found standing ln front of an untouched canvas.
"I shall send that to the Institution tonight, a finished picture," he declared
to the astonished messenger wbo had
been sent by the hanging committee to
see lf the promised picture was ready,
"and have consequently given orders
not to be disturbed." True to his word,
Landseer put the finishing touch to his
canvas and dispatched it to Pall Mall
that very evening; and as "The Cavalier's Pets" lt was one of the greatest
successes of the exhibition.

The Change of m Word.
"Spanking" did not suggest chastisement originally. It was unknown to
Johnson In this sense; to him a "spanker" meant "a person who takes long
steps with agility." Rapid motion seems
to be the root idea of the word "spank,"
which is not merely representative of
the sound of the act, as "slap" and
"smack" are. The low German "spak-
kern," or "spenkern," to run and spring
about quickly, Is close to the original
meaning; hence a "spanking pace," a
"spanking breeze" and a "spanker," In
tbe sense of an active and sturdy person.

The nutmeg Is the keruel of the fruit
of several species of trees growing wild
in Asia, Africa and America. The cultivated nutmeg tree Is from fifty to
seventy feet high and produces fruit
for sixty years. The fruit Is of the
size and appearance of a roundish pear,
yellow In color. Tbe fleshy part of the
fruit Is ratber bard and resembles
candied citron. Within is the nut, enveloped In a curious yellowish red aril
known to us as mace. To prepare the
seeds for use they are dried in a moderate heat for about two months. Then
the shells are broken and the nutmegs
picked out and assorted, the inferior
ones being reserved for the oil press.
As the essential oil of nutmeg brings
a high price, dishonest growers often
steep tbe nutmegs in hot water to extract the oil from them. They are
then coated with lime and sent Into
the channels of commerce. Such nutmegs are worthless, their aroma and
pungency having disappeared, these
qualities being due exclusively to the
oil. If on inserting a pin no oil rushes
ont to the surface, the nutmeg Is, to
all Intents and purposes, a wooden nutmeg.

"I've had the most remarkable craving for tobacco lately," he muttered.
And at dusk he brought home a costly meerschaum pipe and a pound of
Cavendish and, shutting himself up in

until bedtime.
"Hadn't we better change the coffee?

The summer months are an anxious
time for mothers becalse they are the
most dangerous months of the year
for young children. Stomach and
bowel troubles come quickly during
the hot weather and almost before
the mother realizes that there is danger the little one may be beyond aid.
Baby's Own Tablets will prevent summer complaints if given occasionally,
because they keep tue stomach and
bowels free from offending matter.
And the TabletB will cure these
troubles if they come suddenly. You
may save your child's life by keeping
a box of Baby's Own Tablets on hand
to give promptly. Mrs. Frank Moore,

On Thursday afternoon, at 8 o'clock
the Cornerstone of the uew Mt. Pleasant,
Methodist Ohnroh was laid with impressive ceremony, In the presence of a
hug', gathering of Mt. Plensaut citizen
After an introductory address by tho
pastor Bev. A. E. Hetherlngton and th
singing of the hymn i'or the occasion,
the Rev. R. ,T. Wilson of St. Andrew'
Presbyterian Church, mado the opening
prayer, und was followed by Uev. G. H.
Wilson, Rector of St. Michael's Ohnreh
who lead iu the responsive reading of
Psalm 183, then a lesBon wus road
from the New Testament (1 Oor. iii.
0-23) by Rev. A. M. gaufordof Princess
Street Methodist Church, and was fol
liwed by 1111 address by Rev. Dr
Robson. Dr. Robsou began by saying
it was unnecessary for him to go over
tho history of the churoh as it had been
so well written up iu last week's
"Advocate," and spoke iu very complimentary terms of Mt. Plcasant's Local
Paper. Doctor Robsou told of how he
bought tho lots corner of Ninth aud
Westmiuster avenue in 1889. Lord
Stanley was iu the city and wns to give
a public address and Dr. Robsou knew
that after the speech by Lord Stanley
was delivered tho prices on real estate
would go up, so ho put iu a streuous
uioruiiig trying to raise the niouoy for
the lots fl .-."it' and succeeded about uoou
on the day of Stanley's speech, and got
his deposit of }60 paid about 10 minutes
before the speech was made. Tho Doc
tor gave an interesting account of tho
establishing of roligouB worship on Mt
Pleasnnt iu early days. Doctor Robson
culled attention to the pre. enco of the
first resident pastor Rev. Joseph Hull
aud Mrs. Thos. Cuuuitigkaui who
came to British Columbia with
the same party he had in 18-9,
nud wns the first whito woman to engage in Missionary Work iu B. C, in
the Methodist Ohurch, the Doctor also
referred to Mr, A. Kilgour as one of the
Pioneer Methodists present.

ALCOHOL IN SICKNESS.
At ono of the London public hospitals a special point is made of giving
alcohol to the patients os rarely and
sparely as  possible;   and  each  time
that one of the physicians does so he
submits a special entry of the reasons
that actuated him.    Iii tbe thirty-two
years of the existence of tbe hospital
alcohol has only been given seventy-
one  times.    The  cases   received   are
exactly like those received by all the
other hospitals.    For l'JOl thoy numbered   13:i7   in - pati-.nt3   only.    The
death-rate  among theso was  7.3 per
cent.   For the same year the average
death-rata njnong the  other London
public   hospitals  was   9.1   por   cent.
Therefore the use of  alcohol in sickness is not to be regarded as a necessity.    Although most physicians  prescribe alcohol In solution with drugs
for their patients—there wag one physician of national reputation who did
not believe  in  using  alcohol.    Many
years ago when Dr. V,. V. Fierce  decided to put up his valuable "Proscription" for the diseases of women in a
"ready to use" form—ho used as a
solvent   and   preservative   chemically
pure   glycerine   of    proper   strength,
which is n butter solvent and preservative of the active medicinal principles
residing in most of our indigenous or
,v tive   pli'rt.s   than   is   alcohol.    Dr.
Pierce  found  that tho   glycerine,  bo-
skies being entirely harmless, possesses
intrinsic medicinal properties, of groat
value,
""I." woman who is suffering from
iriiiamtuation, from tha pains and
d ains Incident to womanhood can

ciu.; whioh bas the largest number of
cures to its credit and a deserved popu-
larity for two score years all over the

BUILDING AN EMPIRE
THE  NEW   METHOD  PURSUED  IN
CANADIAN  NORTHWEST.
Remarkable Tribute of a Writer In a
New York Magazine—"Things Run
Better Here," Say Americans In
Canada—The Lure of the Wilderness
—From Engineer to Grand Piano-
Conquering' the Last Frontier.
The leading article ln "Success"
Magazine of New York for August Is
one on the Canadian Northwest, called "Conquering the Last Frontier," by
Samuel Merwln, and gives a graphic description of how an empire ts there
being built. Part I. of the article, entitled "Our Lost Empire" follows ln
part:
Definition number seven, In Web-
•terw unabridged, of the transitive
verb, "to lose," reads. "To fall to obtain or enjoy; to fall to gain or win."
jSTwenty-flve years ago Canada was
young and diffident. To-day she ls
strong, rich, and a llttle proud. Then,
had we tbougbt it worth while to
make advances, It ls difficult to say
"What might or might not have taken
place. Now, there are half a million
American settlers In Manitoba and
Saskatchewan and Alberta, and, if you
•hould ask them, you would find that
they are not at all Interested ln the
annexation question. "Things run
wither better here," they say, "than in
the States. The administration of justice Is muoh more satisfactory. We
late no advantage In changing."
If you have ever felt, as I rather
fancy you have, that it is in you to explore strange, new countries for your-
■elf, that you would not hesitate very
Jong between going into something in
the dry goods way and going iato
•omethlng ln the emplre-buiiding way,
you will do well to open the atlas to
*he map of North America and let
loose your imagination in the splendidly romantic conquest of that B'ar
Northwest which we know very little
about, but Which we shall, willy nllly,
•earn a good deal about before "Jim"
(Hill, and the now Grand Trunk Paclflo
and tile Canadian Northern, and the
Canadian Pacific, and the Dominion
Government get through with lt. They
are building—while you wait,—an empire with which we, of these States,
■hall very shortly have to reckon.
New Method of Empire Building.
' It ls the flrst time an empire was
•ver built ln Just this way. The rifle
has no place in the undertaking.
Thanks to the century-long influence
of the Hudson's Bay Co., the Indians
and half-breeds are docile. Thanks to
the Anglo-Saxon sense of order, and to
the Royal Northwest Mounted Police,
there are few or none of those "bad
men" who have Infested our frontiers.
The oonquerlng army ls made up of
farmers and cows and sheep and horses
and ploughs and harvesting machines.
The advance skirmishers, lf you could
eee them at work, are hardy young men
In rough clothes who carry transits and
levels, and travel with pack horses or,
In the depth of the winter, with pack
dogs.
It ls these hardy young men of the
transit ln whom we are most Interest-
•r here. The farmer makes excellent
foundation material, — the best there
Is, ln fact; but li'ie certain of the
others of us he is neither very exciting
nor very decorative. In small parties
for reconnolssance work, ln large par- j
itles for survey work, scattered over
three thousand miles for construction
work, the engineers are blazing tho
■teel trails across the prairies and
through the wilderness. Before many
of them lies hardship, perhaps starvation. For the larger survey parties
provisions are freighted out by Indians
and cached where expert woodsmen
can find them. But the small reconnolssance parties, plunging Into the
northwestern mountains for six
months at a time, can carry only a few
staples. When gun and rod fall, they
must eat dog. In winter—and winter
Is winter up there,—they must roll up
Jn a blanket or two and sleep under
the stars. A Canadian Pacific engineer, poor Vance, was frozen to death
west of Battleford two winters ago. I
know an engineer who has slept under canvaH wben the camp thermometer registered flfty-slx below zero. I
know another engineer who thinks
little, at forty below, of rolling up ln
a single Hjdson Bay blanket on the
■now. In summer this same country
Is hot, and, ln places, dusty, and along
the river bottoms the insect pests are
all but unbearable. The minute and
tedious work of surveying and map-
making is relieved only by Intervals
of pushing through rough country, of
building rafts in order to ferry supplies, Instruments, and records across
rivers, of cutting a way for pack
borscs through tangled windfalls, or,
In winter, of "breaking trail" for the
dogs.
The Lure of the Wilderness.
By way of recompense for this work
the engineer, equipped with technical
Train I in. and wilh years of hard experience, shares with tho college pro-
fossor the distinction of being tho
most highly underpaid of brain workers. A fat traveling salesman with a
grin, a good story or two, and a fund
of questionable grammar, will draw
from twice to ten times the salary.
And the curious thing ls that they
love the life, these lean, youngish men
■with the clear heads and the magnificent bodies. They will perhaps try to
mako you think they don't. They are
a silent lot, as becomes men who pass
their years In the wilderness or On the
lonely, .jvlnd-gw.ept prjilrle_i. aud   they
are wo—t—r_jr for corporation mrectors
whose business ears are not attuned
to the call of the wild. But if you
oould drop Into the Alberta Hotel at
Edmonton, on some mild spring evening, and have a look at the assistant
engineers and the Instrument men who
are booked to disappear toward the
Rookies, within a day or two, for some
six, eight, or ten months, you would
see what I mean. The undying spirit
of adventure ls ln their eyes; the half-
conscious swagger of the soldier of
fortune is in their stride. The same
haunting desire that drove Stanley
back to Africa, that drives the soldier
to the wars, or tbe sailor to the seals sending these men back to the wilderness.
(100,000,000 er So.
The spending out of hand of a hundred millions or so for railroad building through a new land obviously
means something. Three new trunk
lines are already under construction In Western Canada. Before long
we shall be hearing a good deal about
the foresight and the unflinching courage of the men who are standing back
of these huge undertakings. But when
you see this sort of thing ln the papers,
smile. A man would show about as
much foresight ln -taking out a claim
ln the bullion room at the mint. In
Manitoba. Saskatchewan, and Alberta
Provinces there are ororo iirair- two
hundred thousand square miles ot
prairie land, most of lt rich black loam,
ready cleared for the plough. As much
again awaits clearing. In the mountains are minerals and timber. Settlers are pouring ln on every train to
occupy this vast region. Towns and
grain warehouses are springing up over
night. Imagine the Mississippi and
Missouri Valleys to settle over again
under modern conditions. Imagine
anything you like, and you will probably be within the facts.
It Is nothing unusual for these prairies to yield a general average of 25
bushels of wheat to the acre, and 40
bushels of oats. Much of the wheat Is
of a higher grade than any now raised
ln our West, and lt ls frequently mixed with ours to bring ours up to standard. No, the wonder Is that the pompous gentlemen in the tall hats didn't
get their railroads through ten years
ago. Add to this that all save the Hill
undertaking are bolstered up with vast
land grants, and, now and then, with
cash subsidies, and the wonder grows.
No, the engineer ls our man. Of the
two types, the man who Is risking
other people's money ls neither so picturesque nor so Interesting as the man
who is risking bis life. It Is the engineer who is conquering this Wit, and
perhaps greatest, frontier.
Edmonton.
Edmonton ls the jumplng-off place
for all North-Western Canada, the
place where town and wilderness strike
hands. Here In Washington Square
the prosperous little city on the Upper
Saskatchewan seems even farther
away than its accredited 2,600 miles.
It ls SOO miles west of Winnipeg, and
it iL» some little way north of that
fifty-third parallel, beyond which, If
one ls to believe Mr. Rex Beach, the
laws of God and man don't work very
well. If one were to attempt the somewhat hazardous feat of walking duo
east from Edmonton, It would be found
necessary to swim the upper waters of
Hudson Bay before fetching up on the
coast of Labrador. All thla sounds very
remote and Inaccessible. It suggests
rather the Interior recesses of Greenland than the pastoral charms of an
Iowa or an Illinois; and If carried away
from New York, buttoned inside a prosaic waistcoat, what I took to be the
emotions of the explorer, my ignorance
was not, I prefer to think, unique.
A City of Contrasts.
Edmonton Is a city of banks and a
board of trade; of department stores I
a block long and a good many storeys ,
high; of paved streets and brick and
stone buildings; of well-to-do men in
frook coats or in trim riding breeches
and puttees; of prettily-gowned women; of the latest thing in automo- ■
biles, of clubs, churches, and polo
grounds. AU this speaks of the lifo of
to-day. But jostling by the prosper- j
ous merchant or the English "younger ;
son" ls the half-breed In Stetson hat
and sllk-embriidered gauntlets, or tho
squaw with papoose bundled on her
shoulders. The contrast, to one who
has surrendered much of himself to I
the effete influence of our Atlantic j
States, is somewhat bewildering. One ■
evening I strolled to the brink of the j
bluff and tried to straighten It out.
Edmonton was the frontier; I knew
that. But maps, with great "unexplored" patohes on them, are not so convincing as they might be when one is
ln the living presence of clubs, and
banks, and churches, and automobiles.
Before me was the mile-wide valley,
cut out square and deep from the yellow earth. The smoke from the lower
town, thickened by a May mist, filled
the valley to the brim, and in the moonlight It was luminous and faintly purple. Through this veil glistened the
silver Saskatchewan, as lt wound Its
leisurely way toward Hudson Bay. It
was all very serene and very charming.
At this moment It seemed, after all, as
If I might be pretty close to those unexplored blank spaces. I should have
liked to let my thoughts float off downstream through thl mist to encounter
the wild adventures of frontier times;
but even If they could have slipped
safely under the railroad bridge, they
would have come up short against the
very business-like log boom just below.
From Engineer to Grand Piane.
The wild days are almost over with;
the frontier is losing ground every day.
In the trading stores at Edmonton, the
half-breeds sit, and smoke, and talk of
the old days when the steamboat, ran
on the Saskatchewan. Men talk that
way of the rotting wharves at Portsmouth, of the ancient, faded glories of
thQ .§panl_.b.J_-.4in.   AfQien 1 heaxd. U.»
piaint,'n-olir uie lips or a wnmmsicai ora
trader, I gave up my hope of finding a
frontier. I surrendered to the spirit of
Jasper street. Prince Rupert, with Its
electrio lights and Its automobiles. I
merely shook a listless head when a
talkative young man put the age-old
question, "What's your line?" So he
was here, too! Behind a certain prosaic waistcoat, a spark had flickered
out. After the engineer, the traveling
man; after the traveling man, the
steam plough; after the steam plough,
the grand piano; that Is the way they
build up empires to-day.
Kidney Disease
on the Inorease
But  Prevention and Cure, are Readily Obtained by the Use of
DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS.
How He Got His Cherries.
We hear a lot nowadays of the scarcity of farm labor, and of the dilemma
ln which farmers find themselves to
secure the gifts of a bounteous Providence. But The Clinton New Era caps
the climax with a story, which Is too
good not to reproduce: "A good joke Is
told at the expense of one of Clinton's
--•dependent gentlemen, who having
made provision for the picking of his
cherries with a certain person who afterwards found lt Impossible to fulfil his
contract, went Into the orchard, cut tha
valuable tree down, stripped it of Its
heavily-laden limbs, and proceeded to
pick fruit 'under ths shade ot the old
apple traa.'"
An East Indian Tragedy.
Here Is a shocking tale of superstition from British India: "Ten Indians,
of whom five were women, have perished by flre, the result of blind credulity and religious superstition. Seven
were burned alive and three died as the
result of burns. A fanatic at Vasad who
claimed to be a god partially filled a
pit with wood and invited his followers
to Jump in with him before he applied
a light. On his assurance that they
would „bta.in a glimpse of paradise
while the flames should do thom no hurt
four men and five women joined him.
The fanatic kindled the fire, but no
sooner was the scorch of the flame fell
than piercing shrieks for help arose
from the pit. Ropes were thrown to the
victims, but only three were brought
to the surface, and these were fatally
burned."
Recent reports of the New York
Board of Health prove that mortality
from kidney disease is greatly on the
ncreaBO.
-right's disease as well as the other
dreadfully painful forms of kidney
disease can usually be prevented and
cured by giving some attention to the
idiot and to the activity of the liver
and kidneys.
Excesses in eating and the use of
alcoholic drinks must be avoided, and

The derangements which lead to
Bright's disease usually have their
beginning in a torpid liver and there
is suffering from headaches, biliousness and indigestion before the kidneys fail and such symptoms appear
as backache, scanty, highly colored
urine, painful, scalding urination, deposits in urine, etc.
Mr. James J. Jenson, 01<ln, Altn.,
writes :—"I havo boon troubled considerably with lame back, whioh I
suppose came from derangements of
the  kidneys,   and  I  have   nover  been
able to find a treatment that was so
prompt and effective in curing this
ailment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills. At two different times in my
lifo this preparation has entirely
cured me of this troublo, and of late
years I havo found it unnecessary to
use any medicine whatever. I
feel it my duty to add this statement
to the many others which I see in recommendation of this excellent medicine."
Mrs. J.C.Johnston, Carman, Man.,
writes:—"I have been a great sufferer from kidney trouble and hove used
Dr. Chase's Kidney-liver Pills with
very marked benefit. I cannot say
too much for this medicine as it
seemed to be the only treatment that
suited my caso."
Dr. Chase's Kidney-u ver Pills succeed where ordinary kidney medicines
fail, because of their direct and combined action on the liver and kidneys.
This has been proven in thousands of
case- of serious and complicated diseases of the kidneys. One pill a dose,

INSATIABLE PLAYGOERS.
Curious Patrons of Theatres In "Dear
Old  London."
The managers and box-office keepers of London theatres tell strange
stories of the eccentricities of their
patrons.
A certain gentleman, for Instance,
has never missed a single performance
at the Vaudeville theatre since the first
day of "The Belle of Mayfalr." The
curious point about him is that he always takes two stalls, reserving one
of them for his hat and coat. At Daly's
theatre there Is also a patron who for
many weeks has never missed a performance, and has Intimated that he
wants the seat—In the d_ess circle—
reserved until his leave of absence from
his regiment In India expires.
At the Gaiety theatre there ls a pit
customer who, ever since the theatre
was built, occupies the same corner
each Friday night, and for some years
before did the same thing at the old
Gaiety. When the old Gaiety was In
existence a man used to sit ln the gallery every night until a certain lady
ln the company left to go on tour, when
he, too, left to follow her silently round
the country. Recently when she appeared at another London theatre for a
short engagement this distant and devoted admirer appeared in the gallery.
Another well-known patron of the
play-houses ls a middle-aged man who
goes to every mallnoe of the newest
musical comedy. He arrives without
fall, and punctually at half-past four
leaves tho theatre and drives away ln
his carriage. This continues every week
until anolhcr musical piece Is produced, when at onco he transiers his custom.
Last year during the Covent Garden
opera season a colonial ex-Premier
arrived one evening, in ordinary
walking costume, and when he found
that evening dress was lndlspensibie
he borrowed a white tie from the management, and keeping on his overcoat
took his seat. He went to the opera
many times afterwards, and always Insisted on borrowing the white tie.
Mr. Lewis Waller at the Imperial
theatre had a misadventure that left
■his theatre half empty one Saturday
night. Through carelessness the
"House Full" boards were not taken
away after the matinee, with the result that people arriving In the evening turned away and went elsewhere
In search of amusement.

Persls, ward of the late Spencer
Balrd of the Three Burs, rose from the
stiffened form and glanced about with
white face. She wus only two weeks
from boarding school, but tn those two
weeks things hnd happened. Spencer
Balrd bad had a bitter quarrel with bis
son and had disowned him and then
had sent a peremptory summons for
his ward, wishing to see her before he
died, the telegram stated.
In this short space she bad made the
long journey, cared for the dying man
as she could and, against her protest,
been made heiress of the Three Bars
and the other property, and now, death
coming suddenly, she waa alone on the
ranch, with all the cowboys watching
the herds at the dry season bottom
lands, a day's Journey nway. The owner had been too 111 for removal, so had
been left to her care and the cook's,
and the cook, seeing his opportunity,
bad loaded a horse with booty and ridden away. Persls did not discover it
until tho man was a mile from the
ranch house, and then her guardian lay
dying.
As she rose from the motionless form
she hesitated a moment, then went out,
closing the door reverently behind her.
It might be two days, perhaps three,
before any of the cowboys would return, and sbe must have help.
The corral was only a few yards
away, and ln lt was a well broken
horse which had been given her by
Spencer Balrd. She liud only a vague
Idea of the cowboys' position, the direction and that it was a day's Journey
with herds, and from a few words of
the cook she know there was a small
frontier town off that way somewhere,
but whether this side or beyond tbe
dry season bottom sbe did not know.
Another thing she did not know, nnd
that was the fickleness of the Dakota
weather. Though late .a October, lt
was like a June morning when she
started across the prairie. Two hours
later a chill whiff of wind touched her
lightly, and there was a haziness blurring tbe horizon behind. But sbe was
bending over the horse's neck, urging
him to greater speed and thinking of
tho rigid form behind, nnd she did not

notice until a whirl of tine snow struck
her face, apparently from a cloudless
sky. Ten minutes later she wus lu tbe
midst of a Dakota blizzard. I
After that there was nothing but to
urge the horse ou—uo direction, no possibility of turning back against such
fury, only just to trust to the uulmal's
Instinct and not think.
llut strange things sometimes bap-
pen even In a bllzzurd which seems to
hold nothing but death. Perhaps It
was chance, possibly something else,
maybe merely the horse's superior
sense of direction, but at length, when
the girl's body had grown numb and
her mind was beginning to wander, the
animal stopped suddenly, with bis nose
pressed against a door. !
And It almost seemed as lf she were
expected, for the door was flung open,
aud eager, solicitous hands lifted her
from the saddle and hurried her Inside.
"Tho poor dear!" a woman's voice
exclaimed between sobs and laughter.
"Who'd have thought of her being
caught In a storm like this? But lt
was brave of her to keep on. And he's
a good deal worse off, for he hasn't
sensed a thing since be was took from
the borse Just before the girl came.
It's no wonder, though, for he was facing a blizzard, with only summer clothing on. But come"—briskly—"bring
her Into the parlor. She won't have
time for any changes, and she can rest
afterward. It's a half hour late now,
and the preacher's ln a mighty hurry
to get away to a dying job."
In the parlor several persons were
waiting expectantly, and on a couch
near them a young man was half reclining, apparently asleep. But from
time to time he stirred uneasily, and 1
bis half closed eyes cuj—d about, lu -
dared sort of way. Be was assisted to
his feet and Persls led to a position
beside him; then an old man slipped
ln front of them and began to read
hurriedly from a book. Presently he
turned to the young man.
"Do you take this youug woman to
be your wife?" he asked.
"Woman—out ln tbls wild country,"
murmured the young man, "needs help.
Of course, give her my life—everything
I can do—glad to. Tes, yes, of course."
"And you"—to Persls—"do you accept this young man to be your lawful
husband?"
Persia .razed about Inaulrliarlv. and
..,__• iiw niiiniieii mum penetratea tne
thought that they were expecting bet
to say yes. So Bhe muttered yes aud
tried to smile.
There were a few more qnlck sen
fences, a perfunctory congratulation,
and then the old man bumped himself
anxiously into bis overcoat
"See you again ln the morning," hs
said to the young man. "You can let
the fee go until then. No time to wait
now. Goodby all, and thank you, Mr.
Wells"—to their host—"for helping me
■o ln this."
"That's all rlnh_" answered the host
good naturedly. "I'm glau to help yob
ln a thing of this sort, but you're mistaken about tbe name. I'm John
Brlggs. Sam Wells ls on the other
side of the street"     ,
The old man stopped short in the
humping process.
"Isn't this the Ravine?"
"No; It's the Gulch. Tbe Ravine's
across." ,
"What!" In consternation. "And
Isn't this man Vance Green of the Two
outfit, who made an appointment with
me by letter?"
"No, It's young Balrd, and I think
from what I've heard of her that the
girl's the old man',: ward.   You didn't
give any names, so I thought lt was
| all right   It seemed natural the son <
and ward should get married, and, wltb !
' the old mau sick and the son sent off, I
1 this was the ouly way.  Well " In su- j
preme disgust, "you've certainly made
a mess of lt.   What!   Goiug?"
"Yes, I must."   The old man looked
at the figure which was again reclining
I on tbe couch, lasplug Into unconscious-,
' ness, and at the girl, uow seated and
gazing about wonderlngly.    "No  use
trying to explain to  thom  now," be
said.   "I'll be  In  tomorrow and—and
try to make lt right."
.     But when he arrived at the Gulch
the next day he found young Balrd ln
the act of assisting Persls to ber saddle.   The young man's own horse stood
near.   The blizzard bad passed, and lt
was again like a June day.
"It's all right parson," young Balrd
said beamingly. "Persls and I talked
lt over tbls morning and found ouf
who we are. It was because I refused
to marry her that father and I quarreled. I couldn't accept an unknown
girl offhand that way, of course. But
Persls tells me that she Is satisfied,
and I—well, I don't think there's auy
need for me to express myself on the
subject now I've met her. I hope
you'll all come out and see us and be
neighborly. Now we'll go and look
after father. And—oh, yes, here." He
slipped something Into tbe old man's |
hand and then raised himself to his >
saddle and rode away, the girl by bis
side. As they swung off across the .
prairie the old man looked at his fee. i
It was the largest he hsd ever received.
Disraeli's Ilcllrenienl.
In 1876 Mr. Disraeli was raised by
the queen to the peerage under the
title of Lord Beaconsfield, and be left
the house of commons before the newa
of his elevation to tho house of lords
had been made public. Ills withdrawal from the stage where he had played
so long the leading part In a manner
obviously devised to avoid any sort of
ovation was ln accordance with the
dignity which characterized the remaining years of his life after the defeat of tbe Conservatives, when the
general election of 1880, In consequence
of tbe Midlothian campaign, had ter-
mlnated bis public career. No appll-|
cant for bis opinions on any subject
ever received a postal card from Lord
Beaconsfield. No speech was ever j
made by him at railway stations. He ■
died ln 1881 as be had lived—alone, a,
stranger amid a strange people. After
his death his memory became to English Conservatives an object of almost
sentimental affection; to English Radicals lt remained an object of never
falling animosity. But to Englishmen
ef all politics, to Conservatives and
Liberals alike, his life continues to be
a constant puzzle, an unsolved enigma.

EGG EATERS
W. _. B»- Telia How to Get tm.
Batter of These Peats.
If yon have been ln the poultry
business for any length of tif** you
have no doubt had at some time experience with egg eaters, one of the
worst vices poultry breeders have to
contend with, says W. B. Brown of
Mansfield, 0. If you have, the question |» what to do with them. If of
common stock this ls easily answered—
send them to market aud buy others
ln place of them, this being the only
sure and lasting cure. But with the
fancier or breeder of thoroughbred
stock lt Is a different proposition, as
lt is often the valuable show bird that
Is the guilty party, having learned the
vice in the show coop, and when one
bird gets the habit the pen mates soon
learn it too.
The question with the breeder ls how
to get the eggs from these hens to use
for hatching, as we long ago gave np
the Idea of curing them after trying
all kinds of sure cures, like clipping
end off bin, feeding eggs filled with
various nostrums, laying numerous
plaster of parts eggs around the rune
and la the nests, bnt have not found
anything tbat beats the confirmed egg
eaters permanently, as they would aeon
eome back to It, even after a year.
Owi way has been to make nests
that will keep them from getting the
eggs. The best Is to take two cheese
boxes or boxes of any kind of right
•be for the nest box, cut a hole ln
center ef the bottom ef one about two
inches ln diameter, make a nest with
straw, or, better, excelsior, ef the right
shape, pretty deep, cover with burlap
eut to fit tack the edges, tacking nnder tbe hole so the eggs will not break
by striking tbem ln rolling through the
hole. Bore numerous small holes in the
box and sew through the burlap nest
•nd all to keep them In shape. Then
take a plaster nest egg, put a hole
through and sew lt fast near the bottom, but not so as to keep the eggs
from rolling through the hole in the
box below. To make the lower box
use the same material, make highest ln the middle under the hole so the
egg will roll away out of reach of the
hens, and they will soon get so they
; will not stand arouud watching tbe
hens on the nest Have one or two of
| these ln each breeding pen and take
1 all others out so they will be compelled
to use them.

Why * Certain  Men  Decided te Be.
eome Hard of H-earing.
A man who had traveled and observed much decided to become deaf.
"It ls a misfortune," he said, "but
there are compensations—If one is not
too deaf. I spent two days recently In
a country hotel with a man who was
Just comfortably hard of hearing, and
he certainly had every reason to consider himself a wonderfully wise man.
He was Invincible In argument. Just
think whnt a pleasurable feeling of Infallibility must come to a man wbo ls
Invincible In argument No matter
how absurd tbe position he took, he
was able to maintain It against all
comers. I know, because he lured me
Into various arguments and Invariably
overcame me. He would make a statement and I Would flatly contradict it
But that made no difference to him. He
would accept my contradiction as an
Indorsement of hts position and continue his dissertation. Wben I got a
chance I would advance a few arguments on the other side.
"'I am glad,' he would say calmly,
'that you accept my views.*
"'But I don't accept your views,'
I would protest
"'Whatl' he would cry. "What did
you say?'
"I would go over my argument again,
and he would make me repeat several
parts of it three or four times. Then
he would undertake to answer what I
bad said, incidentally misquoting me.
I would correct him, but lt was a cUfil-
cult and tiresome thing to do, and
finally I would let him ramble along.
"I tried to avoid him after that bui
it was no use. He wa convinced that
he had great persuasive powere, probably as a result of practicing on others
like me, aud he wanted to be sure that
I was converted to his views on everything. It set me to thinking of others
I knew who were 'a little hard of hearing'—not really deaf, you know—and
I could see that there was some sort
of a compensation for each of them.
One fellow, who could hear nearly
everything else, never could hear a request for an Increase of salary, and
he wore out every man who asked for
one. That was the way wilh thia deaf
controversialist—be wore me out He
bad me tacitly pledged to every sort of
an absurdity, and he was :o proud of
his success that he was strutting about
like a turkey ceclt. When I was leaving I heard him say to the landlord:
'Yes, he's a pretty good fellow, but
uo match for me in an argument I
downed him every time and made him
own up to It.'
"So I've decided to become deaf or at
least 'a llttle hard of bearing.' "-

that this remarkable country is a cow's
paradise. Here sbe certainly receives
tbe best treatment of any place in the
world The farm buildings are aU of
brick and of a uniform style. A common door leads directly from the kitchen Into the cow stable. Here the
cows remain constantly about seven
months in the year and are cared for
most carefully. They stand very close
to the family In the affections of tbe
owner. In summer days they are on
grass constantly, and If a cold wind or
rain comes they are blanketed in the
pastures. At short Intervals they are
taken to the canals and washed. Behind each stall In the barn hangs •
string from the celling, which le tied
to the bush of the tall, so when she
lies down it is not soiled. The Holland
cows, called Holstelns ln America, a>
though they do not come from Hoi'
stein, are a beautiful lot and respond
to the unusual care with immense
yields of milk. Holland dairying teaches us that careful, kind treatment and
comfortable surroundings pay handsomely when given to a dairy cow.
