Mr. Burke confessed as much to Brad
"They've got rum with 'em, all

It was odd ndvlce from a mate, but,
as Bradley could see, to his astonish
. ment, there was no need of telling Captain Titcomb. It was plain enough
tbat tbe letter knew his crew's condition and deliberately Ignored It. Men
stumbled past bim, and he looked the
other way. Simple orders were bungled, and be did not reprove. Only
once tbat evening did bis wrath blaze
out In the old manner. A sailor was.
ordered by him to do something and.
instead of the dutiful "Aye, aye, sir,"
he replied with a muttered curse.
The next Instant Captain Ezra's list
was between Ws eyes, and he fell, tu

"Hang you.*" said the captain between his teeth  "1*11—I swear I'll"-
Mr. Burke came running and wills-

( "Oo for'ard," roared the skipper.
"and If you want to live yon keep out
I of my sight! . I can't, help It Burke.

That was all, and Bradley wondered.

Bradley sprang Into the cabin and

with the blood running from an ugly

be saw not more than two miles away
and ahead of the schooner the twinkle
of a light. Tben It'disappeared again.-
He walked aft. One of the new-hands
was at the wheel, and there was a distinct smell of rum In the vicinity.   '
"Who gave you that course?"
"Mr. Burke, sir," , • a
Burke was standing by thl fore-
shrouds, looking over the sidci, He
started when Bradley touched his arm.
"Excuse me, Mr. Burke," said the
second mate.  "Where are we?'1
"Turned tha Kip an hour or so ago."
Burke's tone was distinctly unpleasant,  "What are you doln' here?"
"I couldn't sleep, so I came on deck
a mlnyte. Isn't she pretty close In? I
thought I saw the Skaklt light Just
"Saw nothin'! Skakit light's away

I've sailed these waters when you

"Well. I didn't mean to"-
"Then shut up! You go below and
'tend to the skipper."
Bradley bit his Up and turned away.
If Burke was right, be bad no busiuess to Interfere; If he wasn't right
the 'Thomas Doane wa* sharing the
skoals altogether too clese. He went
below, found Captain Titcomb sleeping-.quietly and a little later came oa
deck' again to lean on tbe rail amid-'
ship* and once more stare at the foggy darkness.
A.  big   flgure  loomed   close   beside
bim.   It was Swensen, and he obvloua-
' ly wanted to speak. ■
< . "Well)     Swensen,"   . said    Bradley,
„"what |s It?"
The Swede leaned forward and, shading bis mouth with his baud, whispered-hoarsely:  "Mr.   Ncekerson, you
I there, you."
This I* what had happened: The
i schooner was pssslng out of tbe
I sound, and, as the night was black
_nd hazy, they were using the lead
j frequently. The Thomas Doane-had s
high after deck, and to reach the
waist one .must descend a five foot
I ladder. A' sailor, not too sober, had
[thrown tbe lead and In passing aft
I with the line had fouled It at'the lad-
Ider. Captain Titcomb, losing bis tem-
Iper at the man's clumsiness, had run
[toward him, tripped In the line and
j pitched head first over tbe fellow's
lshoulder to the main deck. Tbe senior's body bad broken the fall some-
lwhat, and.the skull was not fractured,
i but lt was bad enough.
The cook, who had helped bring the
captain into the cabin, lingered after

; "Thoma, he done lt," said the cook.
"The line, sbe git mess up by the''—
"He was drunk," broke ln Bradley.
"He's been drunk all the afternoon.
(Isn't that so?"
The cook looked hastily at the ladder, then at the captain. Then, nodding emphatically, be whispered:
"Ya-as, sir. They most all drank. I

But Bradley would not go to bed.
He was worried about the captain and
even more worried about the schooner.
He did not like Mr. Burke, and be wa*
by no means sure -Judging by wbat he
had seen—tbat the mate knew bow to
handle a crew. About 2 o'clock be decided io go on deck.
Bradley leaned on the rail and looked pyet thf.. wjter toward whej? the
Bradley had been brought up to discourage familiarity wltb men before

"What are you talking about?" be
asked sharply.
"Nawthln' sir.    Only  be know thla
course?   Ah see Skaklt light twice yust
now and only a mile 'n half off.   That
not 'hough—not here."
,   "Are you sure y.ou saw It?"
"Yas, sir."
Bradley turned away. He hated te
risk another suuh from the mate and
tm fully realized the danger of interfering with a superior officer, but Captain
Titcomb was not In command, and
here Vas Swensen a testimony to back
his own that the schooner was running
too close to. the dangerous Cape Cod
beaches. Ths. course she was on was
taking her still closer In. and the fog
' was growing thlckef.
Tbls. time Burke was standing by
the man at the wheel. He swore when
the second mate approached and snarled," "Well, what'B the matter now?"
"Mr. Burke, are you sure that wusn't

said one of a party discussing the extremes of weather. "What do we think
of—what time, wbat plaee, what conditions?"
The suggestion was received with
favor, and here are some of the response-:
"A new concrete sidewalk at noon,
with the sun beating down on lt and
your heels sinking in, and the beat reflected ln your face, and the air pervaded with the smell of tar."
"The desert, with an exhausted caravan struggling to reach a mirage that

And then from somewhere forward
came a frightened yell and the sound
of some one running. Swensen came
bounding up the ladder from the main
deck. |
"Breakers ahead!"- ha shouted.
"Breakers aheadl Put her over! Keep
Mir. off, quick!"
Burke's face went white and then
"Breakers   be   hangedl"   he   cried.
"Keep her as she Is!"
. But the Swede was dancing up and
.down.   There were confused cries forward, nnd other men came running.
"Starboard your helm!" bellowed
Swensen. "Put her over! You can
hear 'em!   Listen!"
He held up both hands to enforce
silence, and for a.moment every soul
on deck stood listening. The waves
clucked along tbe schooner's side, the
wind sang in the rigging, and the
masts creaked. And then another
sound grew, as It were, into Bradley's
ears—a low, steady murmur, now rising, now sinking. He sprang toward
the wheel. *"
"Put her over!" he shouted. "There

merely warded off the furious blow*

And then Bradley struck—a balf arm

deck and fell backward at full length

Bradley shoved tbe sailor from th*
wheel and gave the latter a .whirl.
The schooner shivered, turned slowly,

sbe heeled over on the other tack,
with her nose pointing well away from

Story of How Beethoven Created His
Wonderful Sonata.
Beethoven's famous composition, the
"Moonlight Sonata." is said to bave
been composed under the following circumstances:
One evening ns Beethoven and a
friend were hurrying through, .tbe
street* of Bonn they beard the familiar note* of the "Sonata In F." 'Something In the musician'* touch attracted
the attention of Beethoven, aad he
stopped and listened. Suddenly tbe
music stopped, and the despairing
word* of tbe musician came to them
through tbe opeu window, "Oh, If I
could but bear some really good musician play tbls wonderful piece!" and
the word* ended In a sob.
"Let na go in." said Beethoven. Tbey
entered and found tbe player a young
girl, poor and blind. Beethoven sat
down at the old harpsichord and played as he had never played before. Hi*
listeners were spellbound. "Tell us."
they begged, "who are you?"' For answer be played the opening bar* ln the
"Sonata In F." "It ls Beethoven!"
tbey exclaimed In awe and admiration.
Suddenly the candle flickered aud
went ont Beethoven ceased playing
and', bowed bis head upon his hand.
His friend threw open the shutters. A
flood of beautiful moonlight entered
the room. Its transfiguring light touched up the poor old instrument and rested upon the noble flgure bowed before
It The profound silence was broken
at last by the musician, wbo said: "Listen. I will Improvise a sonata to the
moonlight" Then was created this wonderful sonata, beginning In a sad, tender movement, the embodiment in
sound of the gentle moonlight transfiguring and glorifying tbe dark earth.  ,
Suddenly tbe music ceased, and with
a brief farewell Beethoven hurried
home to put upon paper thla famouB
composition.      ».

Nervous System So Exhausted That Vital  Organs
Are Feeble in Action
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
The digestive system is a wonderful piece of machinery, but powor is
necessary to make it effective.
In this case the power is the nerve
force contained in the body, and if
the norve force is lacking the digestive system becomes crippled, and
there is suffering iiom indigestion,
nervous headaches, neuralgic pains,
dizzy spells, weakness and discouragement. V ■■:'( i,
Strength cannot be regained from
the food you eat so long as digestion
is so imperfect, but you can be restored by Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
which contains in condensed pill form
the very elements of nature which go
to form new nerve force.
Overwork, worry, anxiety and excessive mental effort exhaust the nervous system at a tremendous rate,
and repair must be made before some
dreadful form of nervous disease sets
in. Dr. ChaBe's Nerve Food invigorates the nerves which control the digestive fluids, sharpens the appetite,
is slightly laxative, so as to encourage the action of the bowels and
strengthens every organ of the body.
You can use this treatment feeling
certain that every dose is doing you
at least some good, and can prove it
By noting your increase in weight.
Mrs. J. B. Tardiff, Mariapolis,
Man., writes: "When I began the
use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food my
health was in a terribly bad condition. My doctor told me that I was
going into consumption, and for
three years my bowels were so loose
and watery that I was continually
kept weak and mn down. In spite
of,the many remedies used I gradually grew worse and worse. I eould
scarcely get about the house and
suffered a great deal from backache,
stomach and kidney troubles.
"Dr. Chase's Nerve Food proved
to be exactly what I needed, and by
keeping up this treatment for a time.
I got so strong and well that I did
my own housework and sometimes
worked in the fields without feeling
any the worse for it. It is a pleasure
as well as a duty for me to recommend  Dr.   Chase's Nerve   Food.

disease and Urinary troubles by using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills."

suffers more and more from a chronie;
condition that can be easily cured.   No j
woman should take an alcoholic com-!
pound for that will disturb digestion, ■
and the food is quickly comparted and
becomes hard and tough In contact
with alcohol, rendering the food la-1
digestible.   She must go to Nature for'
a cure.  The native Indiana of early.
times were far from wrong when thev
nailed a marvelously effective meu-'
cinrtl plant "Squaw root"—what tbe
physicians of our day called Canlophyl-
tarn or Blue Cohosh.   This and Black
Cohosh,  Oolden Seal, Lady's Slipper,
and   Unicorn   root,    are   Important
ingredients ot a wonderfully successful remedy in modem times, namely,
Dr.   Pierce's    Favorite    Prescription.
Having made a specialty of tbe diseases
ot women in the early sixties Dr. Pierce
soon fonnd that a glycerio extract of
these roots with Hydrastis or Golden
Seal aad Lady's Slipper root, oombined
In just the right proportions, made the
very bast tonio and curo for the distressing  complaints  ot  women.    Where
women suffered from backache, weakness, nervousness and lack of'sleep, it
was usually dne to functional trouble,
therefore this prescription directed at
the cause cured 98 per cent, of snch
eases.   That is wby Dr. Pteiee soon
put it np in a form easily to be procured all over the United States.
Aching from head to toot—that la
the condition that afflicts some women
at stated periods—backache, disslness,
and pains almost unbearable. An honest ond a sate remedy which no woman
can afford to lose tha opportunity of
trying tor the cure of these distressing
complaints which weaken a woman's:
vitality ia Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. Dr. Pierce not only assures
vou that his "Favorite Prescription" ia
honestly made, bnt he lets you know
just what it contains.
The best of medical authorities recommend and extol the virtues of the above
Ingredlonts In "Favorite Prescription.*
Thus F. EHIngwood, M. D., Professor of
Materia Medloa, Bennott Medical College, Chicago, says of Oolden Seal: "It
is an Important remedy ln disorders ot
tho womb. In all catarrhal conditions:-*
Ol Lady's Slipper root he says: "Exorcises Special Influcnco upon nervous conditions depending npon disorders of tha
female organs; relieves pain, etc." Prof.
John King In the Amriucak Dzbrksa-

The first and principal object of a very great deal of advertising
is not directly that of selling goods, bnt of establishing a worthy
fame—a recognized reputation—to make the goods and the boutio
known. Customers mnst come with some idea of the goods they
seek, the more knowledge the better. With confidence inspired
by effective advertising, it is then up to the salesman to do the
rest—to mnke good by courtesy and a skillful presentation ot the
wares which should be up to all that has been advertised.

^t '  ''      Tobogganing In 1765.
It is interesting to note in Smollett's "Travels Through France and
Itaiy" that when the novelist was
making an excursion ia Maroh, 1765,
Irom Nice across the Maritime Alp*
to Turin he descended', the Piedmon
>,ese slope of-tlio Col di Tenda to
ward Suneo on a toboggan.
"Having reached the top of the
mountain," he tells us in letter thirty-
eight, "we prepared for descending
0-5 the other side by the leze, whicli
ii an oci onai sledge made ol two
pieces ot -\vood, carried up by the
coulants (ieeal'- guides) for the purpose. I did not much relish this kind
of carriage, especially as the moun
tain was very steep and covered with
snch a thick fog that we could hardly
St.? two or three yards before us. Nevertheless our guides were so confidant
and my companion, who had passed
the same way on othor occasions, so
secure that I ventured to place myself on this machine, one of the coulants standing behind me and the other sitting before me as the conductor,
with his feet paddling in the snow,
in order to moderate the velocity of
it* descent. Thus accommodated, we
descended the mountain with such
rapidity that in an hour we reached
Limon. Here we waited two; full
hcurs for the mules which traveled
with the servants by the common
road." , ,

Future of Balmoral.
There is again a good deal of talk
in Court circles as to the future of
Balmoral. It id well known that the
King has not the same regard for his
Highland home as had Queen Victoria, and this has naturally lod to
expectations that he will sell the
estate. At present the house is shut,
with only a small number of servants. Some time ago the King was
credited with the intention of turning
the place into a sanitorium, but it is
understood that the idea has been
abandoned lately. However, not very
long ago several vanloads of furniture
and ornaments, property of the late
Queen, were removed from Balmoral
to Windsor

Lumber Mav Be Short.
New Brunswick lumbermen unite in
the opinion that there will be not
more than sixty or seventy-five per
oent. of the lumber cut on the Ht
John River this coming winter that
there was last season, and there have
been few, if any,- men sent to the
woods yet to prepare for the opening
of operations. Wages will not be as
large this year as they were last year
It is expected that $30 will be paid.
The stringency in the money market
is one of the reasons for tha present
doubtful outlook of. the lumbering
business. Lumbermen find that they
have to pay larger interest on loans.
Then a presidantial year in the United States as a rule is a poor year for
lumbering, and lumbermen on this
side will watch with interest the result of the elections. Then, again,

one, nnd the market is felt to be
glutted, and will ,pi more so nt tne

Primeval  Simplicity  of   FilipinOi   at
National Exhibition.
Side by side with the most highly
developed examples of modem'civilization at the National Exhibition,
both in its human and mechanical
phases, there was shown at the Igor,
rote Village one of the most interesting and unique studies..by way of contrast that could well be imagined.
The transition from the bewildering
array of .scientific triumph,., to ths
primeval simplicity of these children
of nature was renlly startling and nothing could illustrate in a more effective manner what as enormous change
has been effected in the, modes of living during the past few - centuries.
Whether the change has been beneficial is greatly doubted by many of the
thousands who witnessed the peaceful
life and the air of contentment that
surrounds these natives of' Luzon as
the freedom from care and evident disregard of all the nerve-racking obli-JS*
tions ot modern social life appeal
strongly to' ihose who are oampelled
to participate in the latter-day strenuous contest, for existence.
The Igorrote village was located
at the entrance to the Midway, in the
most prominent location on the
grounds, a favor extended by the management on account of the wonderfully extensive interest taken in these
peculiar people. Within the walls
were to be found a large group of
the natives—men, women and children
—who. live in the grass-thatched
houses to be found in the Philippines.
On;-the right of the entrance was to.
be seen a young woman who haB just
entered on the experiment of marriage. She has been taken on trial,
according to the custom of the Igor-
rotes, and should the test result in
motherhood, she will be married with
a ceremony lasting' several days.
Once permanently married there will
ba no divorce, as there is no tradition
of any separation where a child has
survived.   •   .
Another interesting personality M
that bf the first Bontoc Igorrote baby
to be brought to this country. His
name is Wai-yl, and he is now a little
more than two years old. He has
been in the country only a few
mopths, but is rapidly acquiring a
knowledge of English, and was quite
a pet with visitors. At times he parades in modern dress, but evidently
prefers the scanty raiment of his ancestors, and even takes delight in escaping from such restrictions and dis-.
porting in only his beautiful bronze-
brown complexion.
Scattered throughout the village,
working at forges and other forms of
employment, were various members
ofcihe group engaged in their usual
daily tasks. In the centre of the village the entire population participated in war dances and other tribal
ceremonies, such as spear-throwing
Premier Bond Opposes Clause of the
State Department advices received
at Washington from London, where
Ambassador Reid is conducting directly with the British Foreign Office
negotiations looking to the adjustment
of the Newfoundland fisheries question, indicate that the main obstacle
to a complete agreement lies in the
opposition of Sir Robert Bond, the
Newfoundland Premier, to the renewal oi that paragraph of the modus Vivendi of last season which legalizes
the enlistment of Newfoundland fishermen as members of the crews of
American fishing smacks. It" is assumed that the Premier's objection is
based not so much upon the actual
employment of these shore fishermen
at lucrative wages on American fishing vessels, a matter of pecuniary loss
to the colony, but rather from an unwillingness to admit, even in a modus
vivendi, that a colonial law, such as
prohibits their employment in this
manner, may hot invalidate the treaty
provision to the contrary. A number
of alternative propositions have been
advanced from the Newfoundland
side, but meanwhile, failing an Agreement on a modus vivendi in Newfoundland, it is the understanding
that a truce will prevail, by the terms
of which American fishermen will
continue to ply their vocation on the

Joe, who was balling energetically,
paused a moment to reply: , '-'They
had the same chance as we did. But
If they were thrown lipOn thi''reefs
nothing could save them.'"    ..."
Thoroughly tired out, the, two went
to sleep, nor did they awake until
Ned was flrst to awake. He rubbed
his eyes for a moment. Then he. sud-
dently pounced upon Joe and shook
him  roughly.
"Look what's coming!" Ned exclaimed excitedly.
Joe looked, and was Instantly wide
awake, for paddling toward them was
a large canoe fjlled with savages!
"Aren't theybeautles. and darl't they
look  peaceable?"  he murmured  when
that of Pindargogo. As for the captain
arid his crew, nothing more was ever
heard of them.
After a time, King Campeche grew
afraid that the two white boys, who
. could do so many wonderful things,
might ;.try [|0 wrest his kingship anmy«'-
from him, so he determined to"get rid of
them.    '
He asked them to come with hlni and
showed them a great cliff, at the bottom of which he said he had great, treasure of precious stones. He said-be in-'

but that, in return, he wished them to

Tvere by leaping down from the top of

Idea. Why c*»'t ye. puikv parachutes
of skins, drqprtnithe bottom of the cliff
and escape frorirhete?" said Ned.
Joe then told the iking in the few
words of the language he had been
able to learn that they would, gladly
accept his, kind gift, but that they
should like to make the descent ln the .
night, us their magic worked best at
that time.   Jo this the king absented.
At the time appointed, the whole tribe
was at the .cliff. Soon .the boys appeared, carrying queer-shaped skins, fastened to . what. looked like umbrellas.
These, they said, were .to be used for
carrying the precious stones.
After again thanking the, king and
whispering good-bye to each other, in
case the plan should fall, they made the
perilous leap.
Fortunately the parachutes served
their purpose, and, instead of being
dashed to pieces they reached the
ground In safety.
Then, under cover of the night, they
made for the beach. But it took a long
time to find their boat and to get some
of tlie.savages' paddles, so that it was
■just daybreak when they pushed off
from shore. Befojre .going thfey had rigged up their skins as sails.
Only a' few rods ftorn' Shore were they
when the .boat ,waa discovered by the
savages, who, upon-'not finding them at

For each side, two boards are used,
one of six and the other of-twelve-Inch

Then he proceeded to make use of his
