IT was early May and a bright morning In Hlilsborough. There were
lines of stores and houses on either side of the main thoroughfare
from tlie river to Moosehead Inn, a
long, low white building tbat faced
the public square. Hunters coming off
Its verunda and gazing down the
Btreet, as if sighting over gun barrels
at the bridge, were wont to reckon the
distance "nigh on to forty rod." There
were "Boston Stores" and "Great Emporiums" and shops, modest ns they
were small, ln that forty rods of Hillsborough. Midway was a little white
building, Its eaves within reach of
one's band, its gable on the line of the
sidewalk overhanging which, from a
crane above the door, was a big golden j
spool. In Its two windows were lace
and ribbons and ladies' hats and spools '
of thread, and blue shades drawn high I
from 7 o'clock In the morning nntil
dark. It was the little shop of Ruth
Tole, n house of fate on the way from I
happening to history. There secrets, |
travel worn, were nourished awhile and
sent on their way; reputations were
made over and often trimmed with excellent taste and discrimination.
Ruth Tole was behind the counter,
sorting threads. She was a maiden of
middle life and severe countenance, of
few and decisive words. The door of
the llttle shop was ajar, and near it a
woman was knitting. Sbe had a position favorable for eye and ear. She
could see all who passed on either
side of the way and not a word or
move in the shop escaped her. In tbe
sisterhood she bore the familiar name
<if Lize. Sbe bad been talking about
'that old case of Riley Brooke and the
Widow Glover.
1 "Looks to me," said she thoughtfully
as she tickled her scalp with a knitting
needle, "that she took the kinks out o'
him.   He's a deal more respectable."
"Like a panther with his teeth pulled," said a woman who stood by tin
counter buying a spool of thread
"Ain't you beard how they made up?'
"Land sakes, no!" said Lize.
"Well, that old tinker gave 'em boU
a good talking to," said the customer
"He brings 'em face to face, and h«
says to him, says he, 'In the day o1
the judgment God '11 mind the look ol
your wife,' and then he says the sam<
to her."
"Singular man!" said comely Lize.
"He never robbed that bank, either,
any rnore'n I did."
"Men ain't apt to claim a sin thai
don't belong to 'em.   That's my opinion."
I   "He did It to shield another."
"Sidney Trove?" was the half whispered query of the sister Lize.
"Trove, no!" said the other quickly,
"It was tbat old man with a graj
beard who never spoke to anybody an'
used to^tsit the tinker."
"She was Interrupted by a newcomei
—a stout woman of middle age who
fluttered in, breathing heavily, nnder a
look of pallor and agitation.
"Sh-h-b!" said she, lifting a large
hand. She sank upon a chair, fanning
herself.   She said nothing for a little.
"What Is It, Bet, for mercy's sake?"
■aid Lize.
"Have you heard the news?" said
she that was called Bet
"Land sakes, no!" said the others.
Then followed a moment of suspense,
during which the newcomer sat biting
ber under lip, with a merry smile.
"You're too provoking!" said the sister Lize Impatiently. "Wby do yoa
keep us banging by the eyebrows?"
"Sh-h-h!" said the dear sister Bet
again. Another woman had stopped
by the door. Then a scornful whlspei
from the sister Lize.
"It's that horrible Kate Tredden
Mercy!   Is she comlug In?"
She came in. Long since she had
ceased to enjoy credit or confidence at
the little shop.
"Nice day," said she.
The sister Lize moved Impatiently
and picked up her work. This untimely entrance had left her "hanging oy
the eyebrows" and red with anxiety.
She gave the newcomer a sweeping
glance, sighed aud said, "Yes." The
sister Bet grew serious and began tapping tbe floor with her toe.
"I've been clear round the square,"
said Mrs. Tredder, "au' I guess I'll sll
awhile. I ain't done a thing today, an'
I don't b'lleve I'll try till after dinner.
Miss Tole, you may give me another
yard o' that red silk ribbon."
Sbe sat by the counter, and Miss Tola
sniffed a llttle and began to measure
the ribbon. She was deeply lf secretly
offended by this Intrusion.
"What's tha news?" said the newcomer. tuni'DE to JlieMsLsi_-,T.Jk-L     :...-
"On, notn'in-g," said tne orner we-riry.
"Ain't you heard about that woman
up at tlie Moosehead?"
"Heard all I care to," said the sister
Bet. with jealous feeling.
"What about her?" said the sister
Lize, now reaching on tiptoe, as it
were. Tbe sister Bet rose Impatiently
aud made for the door.
"Going?" said she that was called
Lize, a note of alarm in her voice.
"Yes; do you think I've nothing else
to do but sit here and gossip?" said sister Bet, disappearing suddenly, her
face red.
The newcomer sat In a thoughtful attitude, her elbow on the counter.
"Well?" said the sister Lize.
"You all treat me so funny here I
guess I'll go," said Mrs. Tredder, who
now got up, her face darkening, and
hurried away.
"Wretch!" said the sister Lize hotly. "I could have choked her." She
squirmed a llttle, moving her chair
"She's forever sticking her nose into
other people's business," were the
words of the customer. She seemed to
be near the point of tears.
"Maybe that's why It's so red," the
other answered, with unspeakable contempt "I'm so mad I can hardly sit
She wound her yarn close and stuck
her needle Into the ball.
"Thank goodness!" said she suddenly.   "Here comes Serene."
The sister Serene Davis, a frail, fair
lady, entered.
"Well," said the latter, "I suppose
you've heard"— She paused to get
her breath.
"What?" said the sister Lize In •
whisper, approaching the new arrival.
"My heart is all in a flutter. Don't
hurry me."
The sister Lize went to the door and
closed lt. Then she turned quickly,
facing the other woman.
"Serene Davis," she began solemnly,
"you'll never leave this room alive until you tell us."
"Can't you let a body enjoy herself a
"Tell me," she Insisted, threatening
witb a needle.
"Have, ■una heard the newtt"
Ruth Tole regarded tbem with a look
of firmness, whicli seemed to say,
"Stab her if she doesn't tell."
"Well," said tlie sister Serene, "you
know that stylish young widow that
came awhile ago to the Moosehead—
the one that wore the splendid black
silk the night o' the ball?"
"She was a detective"—this ln a
"What!" said the other two awesomely.
"A detective."
The sister Serene was now laughing.
"It's ridiculous!" she remarked.
"Go on," said the otherB, and one of
them added, "Land sake", don't stop
"Well, she got sick the other day aud
sent for a lawyer, an' who do you suppose lt was?"
"I limine." said Ruth Tole. The
words had broken away from her, and
she covered her mouth quickly and began to look out of the window. The
speaker had begun to laugh again.
" 'Twas Dick Roberta," she went on.
"He went over to the tavern. She lay
there In bed and a nurse ln the room
with her—a woman she got In Ogdens.
burg. She tells the young lawyer she
wants him to make her will. Theu
she describes her property, and he
puts lt down. There was a palace In
Wales and a castle on the Rhine and
pearls and diamonds and £50,000 in a
fzzt'.zn ba^,._ind .1 dpn'J kpew .what
all. Weil," ye know sbe was pert and
handsome, and he began to take notice."
The sisters looked from one to another and gave up to gleeful smiles,
but Ruth was lf anything a bit firmer
tban before.
"Next day he brought her some flow-
as, and she began te get better. Then
ha took her out to ride. One night
about 10 o'clock the nurse comes Into
the room sudden like nnd Suds him on
his knees before tbe widow, kissing her
dress an' talking all kinds o' nonsense."
"Here! Stop a minute," suid the sister Lize, who had uow dropped her
knitting and begun to fan herself.
"You take my breath away." The details were too Important for hasty consideration.
"Makin' love?" said tbe customer.
"I should think likely," said the other, whereupon the three began to laugh
"Now go on," said the sister Lize,
leaning forward.
"There he knelt, kissing her dress,"
the narrator continued.
"Why didn't he kiss her face?"
"Because she wouldn't let him, I
"Oh!" said the others, nodding their
beads thoughtfully.
"When the nurse came," the sister
Serene continued, "the widow went to
a desk and wrote a letter and brought
lt to Dick. Then says the widow,
says she: 'You take this to my uncle
ln Boston. If you can make him give
his consent I'd be glad to sec you
"Dick, he rushed off that very evening an' took the cars at Madrid. What
do you suppose the letter said?"
The sister Serene begau to shake
with laughter.
"What?" was the eager demand of
the two sisters.
"Well, the widow told the nurse, and
Bhe told Mary Jones, and Mary told'
me. The letter was kind o' short and
about like tbls:
"Pardon mc for Introducing a scamp by
the name of Roberts. He's engaged to a
very sweet young lady and has the Impudence to make love to me. I wish to get
him out of town for awhile and can't
think of any better way. Don't us* him
too roughly. He waa a detective one*
"Well, In a couple of days the widow
got a telegraph message from ber uncle, an' what do you suppose It said?"
The sister Serene rovered her face
and began to quiver. The other two
were leaning toward ber, smiling, their
mouths open.
"What was It?" said the sister Lize.
" 'Kicked him downstairs,' " the narrator qnoted.
"Y!" the two whispered.
"Good enough for him." It was the
verdict of tbe little shopkeeper, sharply spoken, as she went on with Iter
"So I say," this from tbe other three,
who were now quite serious.
"He'd better not come back here,"
said tbe sister Lize.
"He never will probably."
"Who employed the widow?"
"Nobody knows," said the sister Serene. "Before she left town she had a
check cashed, an' it come from Riley
Brooke. Some think Martha Vaughn
herself knows all about it Sh-h-h!
There goes Sidney Trove."
"Ain't he splendid looking?"
Ruth Tole had opened the door, and
they were now observing the street
and those who were passing in lt.
"One of these days there'll be some
tall lovemaking up there at the Widow Vaughn's," said Lize.
"Like to be behind the door."
"I wouldn't," said the sister Serene.
"No, you wouldn't!"
"I'd rather be, up next to the young
man." A merry laugh aud then a sigh
from Lize, who looked a bit dreamy.

Wonders of  Machinery.
Dependence upon machinery Is becoming nlmost an instinct among the
workmen of a steel mill. A boy who
was sweeping the floor of a Pittsburg
mill, for example, found his path ob-
bireeled by a ten ton machine whlcb
had not yet been put in Its place.
"Hello, Jim," he called to a laborer,
"come here and move this machine
back about ten feet I want to sweep
under lt"
Jim moved a traveling crane until It
stood over the machine and lifted the
20.000 pound obstacle out of the w<iy
as easily as lf lt were a box of cigars.
The boy went on with his sweeping as
lf nothing extraordinary had happened.
He was a nttsburg boy and accustomed to miracles. And electricity,
which ls a new force—sixteen years
olil In steel mills—will perform It-
greatest deeds In the future.—Mun-
Physical Strength and Degeneracy.
Never In the history of the human
race—not even lu the gladiatorial days
of Greece and Rome, when physical
strength was worshiped almost like a
fetich—has so much study been devoted to bodily development and well being. In 6plte of all this, however, we
cannot shut our eyes to tho f__ct that
vide medical reports, while the standard of health may be going up with a
section of the people, It ls steadily going down with others—In a word, that
physical degeneracy ls alarmingly on
the Increase.
Do You Think Men Ara as Vain aa
It has been said that the vanity of
woman begins at the soles of ber shoes
und ends In the crown of her hat
Of course lt was a man who said lt
nnd another mun who repeated lt to
another man, who wrote lt ln n letter
to another man. who told lt to his wife,
who told It to a feminine relative, who
told It to one as a special secret And
yet they sny that women have the monopoly of vanity and gossip!
Do not believe them, ludies. There Is
as much vanity walking about the
world In e«nt and trousers as there ls
parading In bodice and skirt
Do you think that a man never looks
In a mirror?   .
You should peep Into the gentlemen's
cloakroom just before the opening of a
large function.
You see them, one after the other,
old and young, ugly and well favored,
slide up to the mirror and tug at their
butterfly ties, smoothing out their shirt
fronts and tenderly replacing the few
stray hairs which have turned aside
from the level road of the parting.
Note how carefully that baldheaded
old man rakes a small pomatumed curl
over the shiny surface of his venerable
pate and twists up a pair of dyed mustaches.
It must be admitted that vanity ln
matters of dress and toilet ls to a certain extent part of the duty of woman.
Her self respect ls far more Involved
In her personal appearance than Is that
of man. for well she knows that a woman Is judged by externals, while a
man stands to rise or fall rather b.v
wbat be bides within than by wbat he
shows outside.
But though man has fallen to sorry
drabs and grays and black and white,
his vanity of appearance ls not yet
dead. The tailor still has to know bis
business better than the dressmaker,
and lf a womnn wishes to be particularly well and expensively clothed she
must go to a man's tailor who makes
woman dressing a side,show In bis
Household Keys Suspended From Rack
'   In the Hall.
The English custom of a key mck to
hang In the ball and whereon all the
keys of tbe household are suspended
Is fast gaining favor in American
country houses. A pretty and novel
sort an Improvement on the plain
square of wood covered with books, is
made as follows:
Obtain a piece of wood about au Inch
and a quarter square, the length being
determined, by the number of keys lt
ls to hold, and paint stain or enamel
It. On the underside screw small brass
hooks for the keys to hang upon and
suspend from the wall by a piece of
ribbon with a bow on the top. At each
end of the wood fasten a rosette of
ribbon with streamers hanging down.
The wood will look very well painted
white, and It Is a good plan to paint lu
colors to match the ribbons the names
of the keys above the hooks on which
they are to hang. Tasseled cords might
be used Instead of tbe ribbon already
suggested. The former, In fact would
be more serviceable, inasmuch aa it
would not require renewing quite so
A good use for this rack wonld be to
have the various members of the family hang their door keys upon lt—each
person having a separate marked hook
—when returning home for the night
Thus the last person hi would be able
to bolt the door, a cause of confusion
lu many families.
Bishops  Urge Steps Towards  Immediate Reform.
The subject of Congo misrule waa
discussed in the Upper House of Convocation of Canterbury, the Primate
of all  England  presiding.
A series of resolutions were passed
expressing profound regret and indig-
xiation at the methods of admiiiistra-
j tion in the Congo Free State, declnr-
I ing that the members of that houso
l felt keenly the burden thnt was cast
| upon the conscience of England, as
one of the powers by whose consent
the Congo Free State was established
and its neutrality guaranteed, and.
stating that the gravest responsibility
will lie upon the consenting powers
to bring to an end, in some wnv,
abuses which are so crying, nnd whieh
may be of the most sinister effect
upon the relations between white and
colored races throughout the Africnr.
continent, and upon the work intrusted to the Christian nations of Europe
for the service of civilization and-
British Government Responsible.
The Bishop of Southwark. in introducing the subject, said the Conco-
State began on commercial, philanthropic and civilizing principles. Tbi>
British Government had considerable'
responsibility for it, and there wns
ample evidence that things had gone
sipnallv ill.
Dr. Talbot went on to allude to t^e
suppression of the evidence of the-
royal commission, nnd directed rt-
tention to the facts contnined in Mr.
Morel's book on "Red Rubber: Th<*
Story of the Slave Trade on the Congo." No doubt a condition the met
barbarous and terrible existed. To-
pet a certain amount of rubber out
of the noor natives, the most horrihto
methodp had been resorted to. suc'i
as cutting off the hands, and thens-
was a great system of hostages, theae-
hostages being largely women. No.
resDonsibility rested npon Belgium itself in the matter. If all the power*
were keen about it. a verv summary
result, he said, could be obtained.
The Bishoo of Bath and Wells sni*

honor, had been far before the Chnre"-).
of Eneland in trving to arouse public
attention, but this might be parti"

Government in any further sten which
they might wish to take with the view-
to wiping away this abomination-
from the face of the earth.
The Primate, in summing up the>
debate, said the House had rlisehan.-
ed an imperative duty in calling attention to well-established facts. In
the last decade we seemed to hava-
fal'.en into something which rivaled
if it did not exceed, the horrors of
the old slave trade. He could not
suggest what diplomatic action should?
be taken, but they desired the country to know that they cared so much-
about this matter that they did not

with the subtle fascination that the
printing office has for every true
member of the craft, and, as might
be expected, the desire to return to
his accustomed sphere of labor was
not to be resisted. Within an interval of one year he had acquired a
half interest in The Lacombe Advertiser, and in June, 1903, he took over
his partner's interest. Since that
time Mr. Schooley has continued to
be editor and proprietor of The Advertiser, and has been eminently successful in producing a paper that
has a distinctiveness of appearance
that commands more than passing
attention. The paper enjoys a liberal
advertising patronage, and has an
ever-increasing circulation throughout
the wide territory it serves.

Editor and Proprietor of the Lacombe
To Sunny Alberta the lure of the
Golden West has been steadily calling the homeseeker from distant
fields. They have come from the
Mother Country, Continental Europe,
the Antipodes; and Eastern Canada
and the United States have also contributed their quota to the constant
stream of settlers who are rapidly,
filling up this Western province.
That the population is decidedly cosmopolitan can be readily believed,
and those who have a personal knowledge of the general class of people
who are now oi the West, will admit
that it has a generous share of the I
brain and brawn that contributes to
the highest elements of Canadian ,
citizenship. In the building up of
this new province the large numbers
who have been attracted across the
border from the United States have
been a most important factor.
Adaptability, genius and enterprise
are the accredited characteristics of
the average American, and he has a
strong tendency to "make good" no
matter what may be his position in
life. Certain it is that not a few have
attained success in this new country
and have become identified with
many of the leading industrial undertakings. It is not surprising,
then, to find that many Americans
have engaged in newspaper work,
and that they are publishing some
of the brightest of our provincial
weeklies. Among the number is Mr.
F. H. Schooley, editor and proprietor
of the Lacombe Advertiser, of whom
this article is particularly concerned.
Mr. Schooley was born on a farm
in Warren county, Iowa, in 1866. In
1870 his father forsook the farm tp
take up the practice of law, and in
1872 entered the journalistic field,
purchasing a hnlf interest in a weekly
newspaper at the county seat. At a
very early age Mr. Schooley evinced
a great deal of interest in the printing art, and when he was but six
years of age it was his particular delight to stand on a high stool and
set type from reprint copy. At the
age of fifteen he was offered and
promptly accepted a position as
"devil" in a country newspnper office, nnd afterwards completed his
apprenticeship in a job printing office
in Des Moines, Iowa. After working
some two yenrs in Des Moines he
entered into partnership with his
father, and purchased a country-
weekly, The Advocate-Tribune, nt In-
dinnola, Iowa. He was identified
with this paper until January, 1902.
In April of that year Mr. Schooley
moved to Alberta, where he took up
land with the intention of remnining
out of the printing business.   In this

Dr.   Williams'   Pink   Pills    the    One
Medicine Best Suited for the Whole
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
greatest blood-builder known to
medical science. They never fail to
make rich, red blood—lots of it—the
kind that brings health and strength
to the sufferer. They are a family
medicine—good for the grandmother
or grandfather, the mother or father
and for the growing children. Thousands have found new health and
strength through the use of these
pills. As proof of their being a family medicine Mrs. Chas. Castonguay,
Michipicoten River, Ont., says:
"My husband was ill for five months
and was unable to do any work. He
made several trips to the Soo to
consult doctors and spent much
money on medicine but nothing helped him—in fact he grew worse. He
could not eat much and the little he
did eat would not remain on his
stomach. His stomach was examined bv X Rays and found to be in a
terribly inflamed condition. After
remaining at the Soo for some time
under the doctor's care without finding relief he returned home discouraged and afraid he was going to die.
It was then Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
were recommended, and by the time
he had taken nine boxes he was perfectly well and able to go ,ti work
again." Mrs. Castonguay continues:
"I have also used the Pills for female troubles and found them a perfect medicine. My little one also

Romance of a Vessel Assigned to ths
Naval Militia.
Among the vessels assigned to the
naval militia Is one with a history.
It seems, says Appletun's Magazine,
that mauy years ago, when It was the
custom I'or tbe insurance underwriters
to put up at auction vessels th: t bad
beer, long overdue nnd not heard from,
a young apprentice In Philadelphia
happened to attend one of these auctions at which a large ship named the
Dorothea was put up for sale. The
vessel had taken aboard a very valuable cargo, wblcb would go with tho
ship to the successful bidder, but tho
very fact that the property was so
valuable had kept the underwriters
from selling the craft until long after
It had become generally believed that
she was a total wreck. Consequently
the auctioneer cried the good ship
Dorothea many times without getting
a bid. Finally the young apprentice
jokingly bid $*i, and, as nobody would
bid lil— icr, tbe vessel and ber cargo
were knocked down to him. Imagine
the astonishment of the maritime
world when the Dorothea was reported
sailing into Delaware bay. The apprentice sold his prize for enough to
start him ln business, and for years
the house thus founded was one of the
leaders In enterprise and resources In
the Quaker City. But at all times the
head of the firm and his family successors made a point of owning and
operating a ship named the Dorothea,
which name also was always given to
the olaest daughter ln each succeeding
Shortly before the Spanish war, however, the then head of the house was
ln failing health, and the only hope of
saving his life, he was advised, was to
live at sea. Accordingly, he gave an
order to the Cramps for a large and
luxuriously appointed yacht to be
called the Dorothea, of course, and no
expense was spared In her construction
and equipment. Unfortunately, death
came to the owner before his yacht
was quite finished, and the government
paid a fancy price for the Dorothea
early in 1S08.
With the close of the war there was
no purely naval duty for which the
Dorothea was fitted, and yet the government did not wish to sell her, because there was no possibility of getting a price for her anything like what
she had cost. She was accordingly
laid up until the naval reserves succeeded In convincing the navy department that they were entitled to her.
It was not a modern American writ-
0 who. diseusslug the children, wrote
if them thus: "flow mauy are there
vho will give place to a man out of
respect to his age and dignity? They
ire shrewd men already and know
everything. They are In awe of nobody, but take themselves for their
own example." These were the words
of Pliny the youuger used ln one of
his famous letters during the flist
Christian century, but they will strongly apply to much of the young America of today.

"The Gateway to the East" a Cheap
and Flimsy Place.
After a quiet night in the roads
the dock passed into the vestibule of
the canal before the assembled motley crew thnt comprises the population of the place. Chenp. flimsy, shnb-
by Port Snid—nn exceedingly inflnted
fake. About the wildest excitement
in sight thnt nicrht wns a "moving

A ladies' brnss bnnd wns nttnehed,
nnd nfter every "spiel" the Indies
gnve n sweet smile with ench plnte

Arab quarter, which n half dozen or
so "Champagne Chnrlies" thnt follow
you nbout are anxious for you to see,
but nobody goes there nfter nightfall.
From dowr nt the end of the dnrk,
nnlighted street? like the murmnrincs
of a stnge mob comes the noise nf
the conling of ships. All dny nnd nil
night they coal nt Port Snid. The
coal imps in "skoits" nnd turbnn or
fez keep step witli pnttering feet to
a prolonged wailing yell without he-
ginning and without end ns beneath
baskets of dusty conl they crawl out
of tbe lighter up the high side of the
ship. Under the flickering smoky
glnre of great torches naked yelling
figures fill the baskets of the endless
chain that to a weird, formless chant
goes round nnd round up the springy
plank nnd back again.
As you look over the side it needs
no stretch of fnney to lose the sense
of the grimy coal dust, the smut nnd
swent of the toilers, and see instend
demons in a dnrksome pit scraping,
nhvays scraping, the dnrkness into
baskets for the wniling line ol their
long, lenn nnd lank brothers, who
hoist their, hurdens on naked shoulders nnd join the weird pnrnde. In
the ruddy glnre of the torch their
teeth show white nnd their skins a
dull red, only to be swallowed up in
a moment in the dull orange glow that
envelops all.
Fantastically almost the ship builds
tip out of the confusion helow. Vaguely masts, rigging, funnels nnd ventilators nre outlined er touched here
and there with n deliente rosv light
so full of suhtlo meaning thnt the entire fabric is built up by n lew suggestive lights, while the whole is le-

"Canada is a white man's country,

At one of the London public hospitals a special point is made of giving
alcohol to the patients as 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. In the thirty-two
years of the existence of the hospital
alcohol lias only been given seventy-
one times. The cases received are
exactly like those received by all the
other hospitals. For 1904 they numbered 1337 in-patients only. The
death-rate among these was 7.3 per
cent. For the same year the average
death-rate among the other London
public 'hospitals was 9.1 per 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 was one physician of national reputation who did
not believe in using alcohol. Many
years ago when Dr. R. V. Pierce decided to put up his valuable "Prescription" for the diseases of women in a
" ready to nse" form — he used as a
solvent and preservative chemically
pure glycerine of proper strength,
which is a better solvent and preservative of tbe active medicinal principles
residing in most of" our indigenous or
native plants than is alcohol. Dr.
Pierce found that the glycerine, besides being entirely harmless, possesses
intrinsic medicinal properties, of great
No woman who is suffering from
inflammation, from the pains and
drains incident to .womanhood can
afford to be without Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. An honest medicine which has the largest number of
cures to its credit and a deserved popularity for two score years all over the
United States. Dr. Pierce tells you
just what is contained in his "Favorite
Prescription." _

Fro:***! Two Ladles Who Have Been Cured of Extremely
Torturing Cases of Piles by
Dr. Chase's Ointment
Mrs. Geo. H. Simser. Grnnt, Russell
it-Munty, Ont., writes. "Eleven years
«*o I began to suffer from piles, and
s*s they caused keen distress, and became worse, 1 doctored for them, but
with little or no avail. Thev were
bleeding, itching and protruding, and
oh! the torture 1 suffered at times can
never bo describ?d. It was witli suf-
ficring that tlie bowels moved, and, as
nothing brought relief, I qould only
ondure the misery with an aching
tieart and without hope ol cure.
"Finally a lady friend told me about
Br. Chase's Ointment cring piles, and
to my surprise I felt relief at once ou
losing this ointment; the little tumors
soon disappeared, the ulcers healed,
and the bowels became regular. This
■was five years ago, and I have never
been troubled with this terrible ailment since, a thousand thanks to Dr.
Chase's Ointment."
Mrs. Capt. Clinansmith, Salvation
Army, Essex, Ont., writes: "It is with
pleasure that I write to you in praise
tii Dr. Chase's Ointment. Two years
ago I was taken with a severe attack
ot protruding piles, and became so
bad that I had to keep my bed, and
could lie in no position excapt on my
stomach. Doctors could give me no
help, and tlie various oils and ointments used proved of no avail.
"One Saturday night, when I was
suffering untold agony, my husband
vent t i the drug store for a box of
Dr. Chase's Ointment, which I had
heard of as a cure for piles. Although I had almost given up hope,
to the wonder of those around me I
was able to be up and on my feet
by Monday, and have had no difficulty from piles since. As a treatment for all kinds of sores and
burns, Dr. Chase's Ointment works
like magic."
To persons who have given up
looking for a cure of piles or hemorrhoids, this letter should biing new-
hone. There is, we believe, ni more
effective treatment for piles tl'.n Dr.
Chase's Ointment, 60 cents a box at
all dealers', or Edmanson, Bates &
Co., Toronto.

The ptusperitj of the Australian

t the im porta lil developments of the
ast decade. There are always cer-
■iii bi -ties ot these railways that
ne not prolitahle. These branches are
.radically colonization roads, and un-
•il settlement overtakes the railway,
•such branches cannot pay. But as
settlement advances, the railway is
'Xtended still further and so there are
ilway remote lines which do not pay
•is "feeders" nnd indeed for the first
vears do not meet working expenses,
vet these lines tnster cultivation at.l
assist in opening up the country and
multiply the population, and as this
orneess goes on. there is nn increasing
proportion ot the railway mileage
which begins to pny. Under state
ownership these branch lines and colonization ronds hnve been built and
operated at n loss for some years,
which no pnvnte-owned road would
do without a subsidy. The eustomeis
ind employes ol the road have been
and are treated hettey thnn they would
have been undei private control because the Leeislatures of Australia insist on generoup treatment to both
emnloyes nnd customers,
Yet in spite of this generous treatment, nnd in spite of the remote
branch lines, and feeders which hnve

railways taken altogether, pay well.

Dear Boys and Girls:
WHEN we alighted from our train
at the Shtmbasbi (the principal
railway station ot Tokyo), our
friend   clapped   his   hands   to
hail a red-capped boy.
The boy rushed up and relieved us of
our hand luggage—seven pieces In all-
carrying tt to rur kurumae, or jln-
rikishas—Japanese two-wheeled cans
for passengers, drawn by men.
For this he charged two sen apiece.
That means one American cent apiece,
or seven cents altogether, and it is all
the railway permits the boys to be paid.
Remarkably cheap, wasn't It?
Our course from the station led us up
the    main    street,    the    Glnza—Tokyo's
shopping district.    The  flrst thing that
tttracted   Jacky's   notice   was   a   great
clattering sound.
"Why, the boys of Tokyo rattle bones
just like the kids at home, don't they?"
asked Jacky. Then, looking all around
htm, he exclaimed, "But I don't see any
boys. What ls it makes all that clattering r.oisc?"
Our  friend   laughed.
"It Is the ashlda, or wooden clogs, that
all the people have on their feet.. Do
you see?"
"Oh, I do see! My, what a noise they
make! And they walk just as boys do on
stilts, don't' they?"
"Yes, the gait ls very similar—rather
stiff and rapid."
"Oh, I want a picture of that man
with the cart!" exclaimed Jacky, seizing his Brownie and turning It on a
coolie who was dragging a load of
bamboo poles down the street.

terms with Russia their representatives
ln Portsmouth agreed not to demand an
Indemnity, after all, they were so disappointed and angry that many of* the

policemen's boxes and street cars and
attacked a number of church buildings.
That naturally frightened the foreigners somewhat, and for that reason,
among others, the government thought
best to, place the city under martial
law for a time."
After luncheon at our friend's home,
we were taken out to Uyeno Park, one
of the most beautiful and popular parks
of the city, where we saw hundreds of
children having a good time.
Here and there were tall poles with
long ropes hanging from them. To each
rope hung a hoy, his kimono carefully
tucked around his legs so as to be out
of the way, when at a given signal all
the boys gave a hop, skip and jump,
lifted their feet from the ground, and
swung rapidly around and around the
"Oh, I want to do It," said Jacky.
"All right. Go ahead," said our
So Jacky went up to one of the poles,
and pointed at one of the ropes, with a
look on his face that plainly asked,
"May 1 swing with you fellows?"

"Notice when a tramcar comes up,
and take the car and ihe cart together,
Jacky, the ancient and the modern side
by side," suggested our friend. And so
Jacky did.
Accidentally, also, he caught two
Japanese dressed in totally different
styles; one In the old-time native costume—kimono, outside cloak and geta
(or straw sandals), the other—a policeman—in a very modern European costume, with the addition of cap, boots
and sabre.
A little way oft* from the policeman
stood a soldier ln khaki, with fixed bayonet.
"Martial law, you sec," said our
friend. "Everywhere, all over the city
Just now, you will see policemen and
Imperial soldier? standing guard together." »
"Why? Are tm. people so dangerous
and bad?" asked Jacky.
"Oh, no; but when they read ln the
newspapers   that   in   arranging   peace
The boys understood. They smiled
■nd boned In a very friendly way,
while several of them chattered away
at him as lf they thought he surely
must understand.
"What are they saying?" asked Jacky,
turning to our friend.
"They are saying, 'Will the honorable
young gentleman honorably accept their
ropes,"  explained  our friend.
"And what shall  I  say?"
"Bow pleasantly to all of them, take
one of the ropes and say, 'A-rig-ato,'
which means thank you."
Which Jacky did; and such a good
time as he had with the boys!
From here we passed on to where
group of little girls and beys were
playing a sort of "Blind Man's Buff"
game. Some of them had baby brothers
or sfsters strapped on their backs, hut
they seemed not to mind their burdens
in the least, for they ran and skipped
and did everything that the other children did, while the babies' heads bobbed
this way and that, or hung helplessly
back in the full glare of the sunlight as
they blissfully slept.
Such dear little babies as they were!
And how cunning their little legs looked
spread out astraddle across their big
sisters' hips!
On our way home from the park we
stopped at a Japanese boot and shoe
shop, and Jacky purchased one pair
each of the four styles of Japanese footgear—a pair of zorl, a pair of geta, a
pair of pshida and a pair of waraji.
"Can I send them home for the boys
and girls to see?" asked Jacky.
"It'll cost a good deal to do so,"
warned  our  friend.
"Make drawings of them and send
with my letter," suggested Polly Evans;
and that was what Jacky did.
The only style of shoe he did not
sketch was the waraji, because It looks
so much like the zorl, only It Is coarser
and a little thicker, and ls fastened to
the foot by means of straw ties.
"And the queer stockings, or, rather,
socks, that many of the people wear, let
me make a picture of them," said Jacky,
"What   are   they   called?"
"TabI," said our friend. "You see the
idea in dividing the toe. do you not?
Every shoe, you notice, has a piece in
front. Well, all a person has to do is
to catch It between his big toe and his
other toes and it stays on."
"My, how jolly!" exclaimed Jacky.
"I'd like to do that. It's such a nuisance
to have to lace up my shoes when I'm
in a hurry."
"You'll have a chance In a day or two,
Jacky," said our friend, smilingly, "for
when we go up to the mountains (as
you will to-morrow) we shall plan a
climb up Asama-Yama, and for that
climb 1 shall provide you three or four
pairs of waraji."
"Gee!" exclaimed Jacky, "am I going
to wear out that many pairs in one day?
Won't that be pretty expensive?"
"Oh, no; they only cost three or four
sen a pair."
Jacky calculated for a minute.
"That's only six or eight American
cents for three or four pairs, then? My,
wouldn't my father be glad If I wore
waraji all the time! He says it's awful
the way I wear out shoe leather."
"But what is Asama-Yama?" asked
Polly Evans.
"Asama-Yama," explained our friend,
"Is a real, live volcano. I understand
you visited Haleakala in the Hawaiian
Islands; it ls only on old dead thing.
But when you see the Inside of Asama-
Yama you will And something to look
at,  I assure you."
"When do we start for the mountains?"  asked Jacky.

;t Baby's Teething Time and Creeping Period
*■ •- Keep on the Safe Side on the Question of Food
I   By Dr. Emelyn L. Coolidge
Copyright. 1MB. by A. 8. Barnea _ Co.
THE average kaby 8 months old will
usually have cut his two lower
central teeth, which are called
"the lower central incisors." At
any time from the eighth to the twelfth
month the four upper middle teeth, or
"upper incisors," may be expected, so
that by the time the baby is 1 year old
he will usually, have six teeth.
Many mothers ask if they may allow
a teething baby to suck ice. The coldness of the ice is no doubt very grateful to the hot and swollen little gums,
and if comparatively pure ice can be
obtained lt 1» a good plan to let the
baby have a lrttie W islon_..lly. In winter water can be boiled, cooled and put
out of doors In a covered vessel to
freeze, and bo be really pure for the
baby's use. The mother should wrap a
small piece in a napkin, leaving out
th^ end that the baby is to suck, then
she should hold it and gently rub it on
the gums while the baby has lt partly
in his mouth.
Often an active, healthy baby of 8
months will attempt to creep a little on
the floor or ln his "pen."   This ls good
exerclst, and should be allowed if the
baby doeB lt of his own accord, but do
not urge him to do bo; he knows belter
than his mother when his little limbs
are strong enough tor suun exercibe.
Creeping is ruinous to while dresses,
petticoats and stockings; therefore many
mothers make "creeping aprons" for
their babies to use while on Ihe floor.
These aprons are made of tine ginghum,
and may be put on over the dress or
worn without one in very hot weather.
They are usually made to button all the
way down the back, and sometimes have
an elastic or drawstring run Into the
hem at the bottom of the apron, so that
the white skirts may be kept clean.
One mother of twin babies, who found
lt necessary to economize In the matter
of washing, made for her children somo
creeping trousers. In summer they were
made of thin gingham, and in winter of
outing flannel. They were cut after the
pattern of ordinary worsted leggings,
coming all the way down to the ankles
and having broad elastic to go over the
feet and prevent the leggings from slipping up. They were made quite full and
long enough to tie under the armpltr
A The little white dresses were thei.
smoothly tucked In and the babies allowed to tumWo nhnin tn ,x.elz hearts*
content, without fear or soiling th-r
Some mothers Beem to think that as
soon as the baby has any teeth It Is
time to give him solid food. They will
give the baby "Just a taste" of bread,
cake and, worst of all. potato. Now potato contains so much starch that It —
verv difficult for a baby's stomach to
digest, and it should not be given until
the baby Is at the very least 2 years old.
Gruels, broths nnd milk are quite enough
for a baby until he is a year old.
Convulsions are often caused by allowing the baby to have "Just a little"
of food from the table. It Is much better to keep on the safe side unci give the
baby only whnt Is especially prepared
for him and suitable to his special needs.
An 8-month-old baby will usually bo
able to take a formula composed of:
Six ounces of top milk, Hkimmed from
the top of a quart bottle of milk, seventeen ounces of milk poured off, twenty-one ounces of gruel, seven trnspoon-
fuls of milk sugar or four of wanulated.
a pinch of bicarbonate of soda, and a
pinch of salt. This should be bottled
► nnd pasteurized, as usual, and given to
the baby every three hours up to 10 P.
M.. prtvlng six and a half to seven and a
ki'lf ouuecs at each meal.
HERE ts a picture of a "baby giraffe." over which the young
Berlinese have been much excited this summer. The German boys
and girls are so fond of natural histery
that when they hear of a new animal
being born at the Zoo they all flock
there to see It, and then come back
often to watch tt grow.
You would hardly think that great,
long-necked animal, to whose mouth
the keeper must stretch up, was a baby,
Would you?   But so lt ls.
It ls a female giraffe, only a few
months old, and were It not for its kind
caretaker I am afraid it would not be
alive to-day. Poor llttle thing, her
mother neglects her terribly. She will
not food or sleep with her baby daughter, and so the keeper is bringing it up
on a bottle to be a fine healthy young
The baby giraffe took at first about a
gallon of milk a day, but now it drinks
more, and takes a little hay besides.
When night comes, where do you think
she sleeps?   Why, with her kind keeper.
When little Fraulein Giraffe arrived
It created much wonder, for baby giraffes are not often born in captivity.
Perhaps lt ls because the mother ls
shut up ln the Zoo that she is so indifferent to her child, for down in their
native Africa giraffe mothers are very
attentive to their children.
One might think Mrs. Giraffe would be
very proud, Indeed, of her daughter, who
was a fine, large baby, weighing fifteen
pounds and measuring almost six feet
from the point of her nose to the beginning of her tail. It was a dear, gentle-looking little baby, with yellowish
skin patched with brown, big brown,
full, shining eyes and a very gentle expression.
By and by baby giraffe will grow to
be eighteen feet high. Then, if it were
back In its African forests, lt wouid
reach up Its long neck and feed on the
tender shoots and leaves of trees.
It ls said to be very amusing to see a
giraffe run. They are not very swift,
and when they gallop they bring their
hind legs at each step In advance of
their front legs and a foot or two outside them. What a happy spring motion that would be! No wonder hunters
and dogs can easily catch them!
But If the giraffe Is not very swift, lt
la plucky, and when avtacked tt w__
kick Its hoofs so rapidly and so hard
that even lions are afraid of them.
Some people think young giraffes _r_
very good to eat, but Polly Evana would
rather rot taste them to And out. llow
about you, boys and girls?
Down In Africa, too, they us* tl»
giraffe's skin for soles of shoes and sandals or to make water vessels, or etcu.
for roofs to their huts.

The foundation Is cut from heavy
cardboard, and consists of two pieces,
abcut eight inches long and five and a

and pointed at the lower end. This

though linen or cotton goods are preferable, as they are less likely to catch

Paste the goods on each half of tho

It smooth and tight. Let it become perfectly dry, then overcast the two halveHi

a narrow silk cord.
On the upper part of the shield tie

erf Cat Wiih a Wonderful Pediyree
NOT long ago they gave a great
cat exposition in Hamburg, Germany.
Don't you think It must have been &
funny sight? Polly Evans does. Even
more amusing than a baby show, which
Is odd enough when ever so many of
the babies begin to cry at once.
Imagine If several hundred cats took
a notion to ml-au-w at the same time.
Wouldn't It be a terrible noise? I am
Bure the people at the exposition would
have run away In terror.
Well, at this German cat show there
were big cats and little cats and wee,
tiny ■"•Hens; gruy cats, yellow cats,
blue., cats and cats all snowy white;
cats with Ions, bu»hy tails and several
Mans k!::;„s with no tails at all.
Of course, every cat's mistress or
master was very anxlotia for It to tnke
a prize, so they wrote all nbout Its parents and grandparents as fur back us
It was known. This is called a cat's
Now, thero was a very proud cat, Indeed, at this exposition, one that belonged to a very ancient cat family—
probably there Is no other kitten ln tho
world that can claim to bo quite so
aristocratic. This cat was Dodo, a
magnificent white Angora, with long,
Huffy tall, smooth, silken fur. thick, full
whiskers and a very Intelligent face.
Dodo won a prize not only for her
own beauty and clever tricks, but because of her wonderful pedigree, Her
owners could trace pussy's family bnck
to 1794 in an unbroken line. One hundred and eleven years! Just think of
that! They could tell all about her
father and mother, and Rrandfather
and grandmother, way back to tho
Very few boys and girls ran do as well,
I am sure. Perhaps, some of you are
Intcrebtcd in genealogy—which means a
study of one's pedigree—and love to look
U" "our ancestors.   It Is a very interest
ing study If you once begin lt Howeven,
most boys and girls are like Dodo, they
do not care anything about such thing*.
But lf those ancestors could have seal
Dodo ihey would have been proud of ber.
no doubt. She was such a fine, UIr,
beautiful cat. '
