I      .
SIDNEY  TROVE   sat talking  a
while with Miss Letltla.   MIsa
S'mantha,   unable   longer   to
bear the unusual strain of danger and publicity, -went away to bed
soon after supper.   Tunk Hosely came
ln witb a candle about 9.
"Waal, mister," said he, "you ready
r go f bed?"
. "I am," said Trove and followed him
to the cold hospitality of the spars
room, a place of peril, but beautifully
clean. There was a neat rag carpet on
the floor, Immaculate tidies on the bureau and wash table and a spotless
quilt of patchwork on the bed; but,
like tbe dungeon of mediaeval times,
lt was a place for sighs and reflection,
not for rest. Half an inch of frost on
every window pane glistened in the
dim light of the candle.
"As soon as they unlock my door I'll
come an' let ye out in the mornln',"
Tunk whispered.
"Are they going to lock me In?""
"Wouldn't wonder," said Tunk soberly. "What can ye 'spect from a couple
o' dummed ol' maids like them?"
There was a note of long suffering
In his half whispered tone.
"Good night, mister." said he, with a
look of dejection. "Orter have a nightcap er ye'll git hoar frost on yer hair."
Trove was all a-shlver ln the time it
took him to undress, and his breath
came out of him In spreading shafts
of steam. Sheets of flannel and not
less than half a dozen quilts and comfortables made a cover, under which
tbe heat of his own blood warmed bis
body. He became uncomfortably
aware of the presence of his head and
face, however. He could hear stealthy
movements beyond the door and knew
thej were barricading lt wltb furniture.
Long jefore daylight a hurried removal
of the barricade awoke him. Then he
beard a rap at the door and the excited
voice of Tunk.
"Say, mister, eome here quick!" it
Sidney Trove leaped out of bed and
Into bis trousers. He hurried through
the dark parlor, feeling bis way around
a clump of chairs and stumbling over
a sofa. The two old maids were at the
kitchen door, both dressed, one holding
n lighted candle. Tunk Hosely stood
by the door, buttoning suspenders with
one hand and holding a musket In the
other. They were shivering and pale.
The room was now cold.
"Hear that!" Tunk whispered, turn-
big to the teacher,
Tbey all listened, hearing a low,
weird cry outside the door.
"Soun's t' me like a raccoon," Miss
S'mantha whispered thoughtfully.
"Or a lamb," said Miss Letltla.
"Er a painter," Tunk ventured, his
ear turning to catch the sound.
"Let's open the door," said Sidney
Trove, advancing.
"Not me," said Tunk firmly, raising
his gun.
Trove had not time to act before
they heard a cry for help on the doorstep. It was the voice of a youug girl.
He opened the door, and there stood
Mary Leblanc, a scholar of Llnley
school and the daughter of a poor
Frenchman. She came In lugging a baby wrapped iu a big shawl and both
"Oh, Miss Tower," said she, "fta has
come out o' the woods drunk an* has
threatened to kill the baby! Ma wants
to know lf you'll keep It here tonight"
The two old maids wrung their hands
with astonishment and only said ";!"
"Of course we'll keep It," said Trove
aa he took the baby.
"I must hurry back," said the girl,
now turning with a look of relief.
Tunk shied off and began to build a
lire. Miss S'mantha sat down'weeping,
the girl ran away ln the darkness, and
Trove put the baby ln Miss LeUtia's
. "I'll run over to Leblanc's' cabin,"
■aid he, getting his cap and coat
"They're having trouble over there."
He left them and hurried off on IiU
way to the little cabin.
Loud cries of the baby rang in that
abode of silence. It began to kick and
squirm with determined energy. Poor
Miss Letltla bnd the very look of panic
in her face. She clung to the Hcive little creature, not knowing what to do.
Miss S'mantha lay back In a fit of hysterics. Tunk advanced bravely, with
brows knit and stood looking down at
the baby.
"Lord, tbls Is awful." said be. Then
a thougbt struck him. "I'll git some
milk," he shouted, running Into the
The baby thrust the cup away, and
It fell noisily, the milk streaming over
a new jraS'-carset —
■"H's sTck'* Tm Bure it's sick," said
Miss Letltla, her voice trembling.
"S'mantha, enn't you do something?"
Miss S'mantha calmed herself a little and drew near.
"Jes' like a wil'cat," said Tunk
thoughtfully. "Powerful, too," he add.
ed, with an effort to control one of the
kicking legs.
"What shall we do?" asked Miss Letltla.
"My Bister had a baby once," said
Tunk, approaching lt doubtfully, but
with a studious look.
He made a few passes with his hand
ln front of the baby's face. Then he
gave it a little poke ln the ribs tentatively. The effect was like adding Insult to injury.
"If 'twas mine," said Tunk, "which
I'm glad it ain't, I'd rub a llttle o' that
hoss liniment on bis stummlck."
Tbe two old maids took the baby Into
their bedroom. It was an hour later
when Trove came back. Tunk snt
alone by the kitchen flre. There was
yet a loud wall ln the bedroom.
"What's the news?" said Tunk, who
met him at the door.
"Drunk, that's all," said Trove. "I
took this bottle, slung shot and bar of
iron away from him. The woman
tbougbt I had better bring tbem with
me and put them out of his way."
He laid them on tbe floor ln a corner.
"I got blm Into bed," be continued,
"and then hid the ax and came away.
I guess they're all right now. When I
left be had begun to snore."
"Waal, we ain't all right," said Tunk,
pointing to the room.    "If you can

conquer that thing you'll do well. Poor
Miss Teeshyl" he added, shaking his
"What's the matter with her?" Trove
"Kicked ln the stummlck till she dun-
no wbere sbe ls," said Tunk gloomily.
Ho pulled off his boots.
"If she don't go in me t'morrer 1*11
miss my guess," be added. "She looks
a good denl like Deacon Hnsklus after
he hnd milked the brlndle cow."
He lenned bnck, one foot upon the
stove hearth. Shrill cries rang ln the
old house.
•' 'Druther 'twould hev been a painter," snld Tunk, sighing.
"Wby so?"
"More used to 'em," said Tunk sadly.
They listened a while longer without
"Ye can't drive lt, ner conx it ner
scare It away, ner do nuthln' to It"
said Tunk presently.
He rose and picked up the things
Trove had brought with him. "I'll take
thene to the barn," said he. "They'd
have a fit If they was t' see 'em. Wbat
be they?"
"I do not know whnt they are," said
"Wo a I!" said Tunk. "Ibey're queer
folks, them Frenchmen." This looks
like an iron bar broke In two ln tbe
middle."   '
He got his lantern, picked up the bottle, the slung shot and the iron and
went away to the barn.
Trove went to the bedroom door and
rapped and was ndmltted. He went to
work with the bnby, and soon, to bis
Joy, lt lay asleep on the bed. Then he
left the room on tiptoe and n bit weary.
"A very full dny," he said to himself
—"teacher, counselor, martyr, constable, nurse! I wonder whnt next?"
And as he went to his room be hoard
Miss S'mnntba sny to her sister, "I'm
thnnkful It's not a boy nnyway."
LL were In their sents, and the
teacher  bad   called   a   class.
Carlt Homer came in.
"Vimix* ten  minutes late."
said the teachelf-       ""**?
"I have fifteen cows to milk," the boy
"Where do you live?"
" 'Bout a mile from here on the Bead.
"What time do you begin milking?"
" 'Bout 7 o'clock."
"I'll go tomorrow morning and help
you," said the teacher. "We must be
on time. Thnt's a necessary law of the
school." 2
At a quarter before 7 In the moruiug
Sidney Trove presented bimself at the
Homers'. He hnd come to help with
the milking, but found there were only
five cows to milk.
"Too bnd your fnther lost so many
cows—all iu a day," said he.   "It's a
grent pity. Did you lose anything?"
"No, sir."
"Hnve you felt to see?"
The boy put his hand In his pocket.
"Not   there—it's   an   inside  pocket;
way inside o' you.  It's where you keep
your honor and pride."
"Waal,"' said the boy, his tears starting, "I'm 'frald I have."
"Enough said. Good morning," tbe
teacher answered as he went away.
One morning a few days later the
teacher opened bis school with more
"The other day," snld he, "I spoke of
a thing lt was very necessary for us to
learn.  Whnt was lt?"
"To obey," said a youngster.
"Obey what?" the teacher Inquired.
"Law," somebody ventured.
"Correct  We're studying law, every
one of us, tbe laws of grammar, of
arithmetic, of reading, and so on.  We
are learning to obey them.   Now I am
going to ask you wbat is the greatest
law In the world?"
There was a moment of silence. Then
the teacher wrote'these words in large
letters on the blackboard, "Thou shalt
not lie."
"There Is the law of laws," said the
teacher solemnly. "Better never have
been born than not learn to obey it. If
you always tell tbe truth you needn't
worry about any other law. Words are
like money—Borne are genuine, some
are counterfeit. If a man had a bag
of counterfeit mouey and kept passing
It, ln a little while nobody would take
bis money. I knew a man who said
be killed four bears at one shot
There's some that see too much when
they're looking over their own gun
barrels. Don't be one of tbat kind.
Don't ever kill too many bears at a
After that ln the Llnley district a
man who lied was said to be killing too
many bears at a shot.
Good thoughts spread with slow but
sure contagion. There were some wbo
understood the teacher. His words
went home and far with them, even
to their graves, and how much farther
who can say? They went over the
hills,. Indeed, to other neighborhoods,
and here they are, still traveling, and
goiug now, lt may be, to the remotest
corners of the earth. The big boys
talked about this matter of lying and
declared the teacher was right
"There's Tunk Hosely," said Sam
Price. "Nobody'd take his word fur
'• 'Less he was f sny he was a fool
out an' out," another boy suggested.
"Dunno as I'd believe him then,"
said Sam, "fer rd begin t' think he
knew Biithln'."
A little girl came In crying one day.
"Wbat Is the trouble?" said the teacher tenderly, as he leaned over and put
his arm around her.
"My father is sick," said the child,
"Very sick?" tbe teacher Inquired.
For a moment she could not answer,
but stood shaken with sobs.
"Tbe doctor snys he can't live," snld
she brokenly.
A solemn stillness fell In the little
schoolroom. The teacher lifted the
child and held ber close to bis broad
breast a moment.
"Be brave, llttle girl," said he, patting her hend gently. "Doctors don't
nlwnys know. He may be better tomorrow."
He took the child to her seat and sat
beside her and whispered a moment
his mouth close to her ear. And what
be said none knew save the girl herself, wbo ceased to cry In a moment,

The Most Deviate Spot.
Perhaps the caodlr desolate spot on
earth ls a tiny Btprra swept islet ln
Bering sea nearly midway between
Alaska and- Siberia. Nenrly fifty miles
from the nearj-t land, King's islaud Is
a barren rot&, so steep that no beach
landing can be found. Hen on the
southern side, perched like nests above
the roaring surf and secured to the
rocke'Dy walrus thongs, are the skin
dwellings of the wnlrus hunters. Here
the sun ls never shining, the sen never
smooth. Cold, chilly fogs enshroud the
place In summer, while the frequent
j and furious gales that sweep through
| Bering strait at all sessous render the
narrow summit uninhabitable. Ice
locked during nine months of the year,
the natives depend entirely upou the
seal, wnlrus and whale as a means of
existence. During the brief summer a
stray whaler may visit the Island for
a couple of hours, but this Is the svole
communication with the outer world.
The King's islanders are closely allied
to the Alaskan Eskimos. They are a
fine, hardy race, Inured to dally dangers and privations, and are reckoned'
the best and bravest sailors in Bering
sea. Their boats of walrus hide will
carry from twenty to thirty persons ln
a mountainous sea.
Strange Fuels.
"I have eaten mutton cooked on a
flre of broken mummy," said the sailor.   "It was ln Egypt, and the mum my
was stolen out of a tomb.   Them natives   Is   always   steallu'   mummies.
The)  sell them In pieces to tourists,
j and what #eces they can't dispose of
! otherwise fhey throw Into the bin for
J fuel.    Mummy burns like t'nder, but
I it's a ghastly fuel.   It Is as ghastly a
' fuel as the shoe lasts what they burn
ln the shoeraakin' town of Lynn, where
the old fashioned and discarded lasts
glowln' ln the grates look to you like
amputated human Trilbies.   I been In
tannery towns where the fuel Is lea i lier chips.   This fuel smells and smokes.
It clinkers, too, forculn' Itself Into big,
solid chunks what have to bo broke up
with the poker every little while.    In
British Columbia, where fish Is as plentiful as air, they burn .dried fish when
there's no wood bandy.   The oil In' the
fish causes them fo burn well, but the
Bmel. of this fish fuel ain't to no whito
man's taste."
Pawnshop Art Sales.
"One of the most Indefatigable painters In Philadelphia bas almost exclusively a pawnshop trade," said a pawnbroker the other day while discussing
the many tricks of his business. "He
has been working this market,'' he continued, "for almost four years. I believe I was bis first customer. He was
reduced to the point where his ouly
capital was a lot of pictures that be
could not sell. In bis extremity he
came to me. I advanced him a llttle
money on several pictures, which I
was lucky enough to sell. The'funny
p-trt of it was that the man himself
couldn't sell a picture to save his soul.
He finally realized tbat he wns deficient in business Ideas and confined
himself strictly to painting pictures,
while I attended to tbe sales. At last
he got other customers In my line, and
today be actually makes a living from
the pawnshop trade." — Philadelphia
. What Ailed the Speech.
At the close of one of the sessions In
the trial of Warren Hastings when
most of those engaged had gathered in
the anteroom Dr. Parr stalked up and
down the room in his pedantic, pompous way, growling out praise's of the
speeches of Fox and Sheridan, but saying not a word about Burke's. Burke,
sensitive at this omission and anxious
for some commendation from the great
nuthority, could nt last contain himself
no longer and burst out:
"Doctor, didn't you like my speech?"
"No, Edmund," replied Dr. Parr,
calmly eying his excited questioner.
"Your speech was oppressed with metaphor, dislocated by parenthesis and
debilitated by amplification!"

A  J-Tenlle  Blur  Containing  Some
Hitherto l-p-blLhed Information.
The human body was first supposed
to be made up of 208 bones, but later
discoveries bave developed the fact
that lt contains 208 bones and an appendix. An appendix ls something
which ls added on, like a postscript on
a woman's letter, and means about na
much. Its principal use Is to afford a
revenue for doctors and surgery specialists. Operations on the human system are the correct thing ln polite society. Pa says there Is one woman ln
our town who has nothing left ln her
but ber palate aud her tongue, she has
been operated on bo much. Last Sunday our Sundny school text was,
"Praise the Lord, oh, my soul, and all
that ls within me." I said to pa,
"Mrs. So-and-so wouldn't be very
strong on that would she?" And he
laughed and said no.

For Instance, lf you put your finger on

finger Is getting burned, and your
brain flnshes back Instructions to take
your finger off the stove. The other
night I had my fingers lu a can of Jam.

The Crystal  Palace Show
At the forty eighth Great National
Bird Show, held this year at the
Crystal Palace, in London, 2,200
birds transformed that place into a
perfect hall of song. Twelve hundred
•and fifty canaries were exhibited,
two-thirds of that number being or-
;ange colored. The president of the
show, by way of accounting for the,
majority of orange-colored canaries,
•''They are becoming more and more
popular. The method of turning a
canary's fenthers orange is..very

given to the bird when it is young
a more vivid color will be obtained.

when her baby cries he is not crying

"The Blood is The Life,"
Science' has never gone beyond the
above simplo statement of scripture. But
it has Illuminate- that statement and
given It a meaning ever broadening with
the increasing breadth of knowledge.
Whon the blood Is "bad" or Impure It
is not alone' the body Which suffers
through disease. The brain is alio
clouded, Uie mind and judgement are
effected, and many an evil deed or Impure
thought may be directly traced to the
Impurity of the blood. Foul, Impure blood
can ba made pur* br the use of Or.

An instructive pamphlet devoted
to breeds of swine has been issued
from Ottawa as Bulletin No. 11 of
the Live Stock branch. It deals
with the history, characteristics
and points of excellence of the six
principal breeds reared in Canada.
Commencing with a review of the
origin of domestic swine, the bulletin teaches that the many varieties
that are found in various parts of
the world are all descended from
one original stock of wild hogs. The
variations that were effected by
domestication upon the progenetors
of our present breeds are followed
out briefly. It is pointed out that
confinement along with an ample
supply of food soon affected great
and lasting changes in conformation, disposition and aptitudes of
the animals. With these changes
there came about a breeding to
type and color in various localities
as suited the requirements and de-
in the course of time in establish-
sires of the hog raisers, resulting
ing the present pure breeds. Copies
of the bulletin are obtainable by applying to the Live Stock Commissioner at Ottawa.

Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made the;
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
does to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.

The  Easter  Designrr
April waa    chosen    for the Easter
number of the Easter   Designer   because  costumes  appropriate  for  Easter are more suitable for April than
Curiosities of Cofee.
Coffee, as experts are aware, has a
rery extraordinary property. It ls one
of the most absorbent matters ln existence. Coffee beans placed ln a damp
ior March. And the designs of the j room nwell and absorb moisture til)
new spring dresses are very attract- j they e^rly double their weight. Here
■ve.    The grace and practicability of' Is the chance of the dishonest grocer.
The Designer models are winning
many new friends among well-
dressed women because of tlie ease
if makin.. mul correctness in the fit.
The liction in the April number ia
ji more than ordinary interest. The
continued story begun iii the March
number, "Economy Farm," by Miles
Bradford, author of "Corlotta and
I," has the second instalment in the
April number. There is also an in-
iteresting article on "My Three Masters in the Far Easts;" by Alexander
Hume Ford, a man who has covered
the world in travel and has had
many interesting experiences. An
Easter play for little folks will prove
to be another possibility for home

Need a Tonic to Put the
Blood Right.
Spring blood is bad blood. Indoor
(life during the winter months is responsible for weak, watery, impure
4>lood. You need a tonic to build up
*the blood in spring juat as much as
the trees need new sap to give them
vitality for the summer. In the
spring bad blood shows itself in
•many ways. In some it breeds pim-
jples and eruptions. In others it may
_e through occasional headaches, a
vfasriable appetite, perhaps twinges of
neuralgia or rheumatiam, or a lazy
feeling in the morning and a desire
to avoid exertion. For these spring
ailments it is a tonic you need, and
the greatest blood-making, health-
giving tonic in a'l the world is Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. Every dose
helps to make new, rich, red, health-
giving blood, which reaches every
nerve and every organ in the body,
bringing health, strength and energy
to weak, despondent, ailing men and
women. Here is proof. Mrs. Geo.
Merritt, Sandy Cove, N.S., says: "I
was weak, feeling miserable and ter-
.n_.ily run down. The doctor whom I
-consulted said the trobule was anaemia, but lie did not help me. A friend
: advised me to take Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and it is simply impossi-
ble for me to over-estimate the good
i they have done me. I ahall always
uecommend them to ailing friends."

Nothing is more unpleasant to the
eye and more painful to the sufferer
than boils and ulcers. At this period
of the year many adults suffer acutely from these painful outbreaks.
When boils, ulcers, etc. occur on
children it ia pitiful to see the little
onea suffer.
Mrs. E. Holmes, of 30 Guise St.,
Hamilton, is grateful for what Zam-
Buk did for her little boy when in
this pitiful plight. She says: "He
suffered from Spring eruptions and
then boils broke out on his neck. I
tried blood purifying remedies, but
nothing seemed to do him the de-
aired good. The boils got worse and
I eould not send him to school. We
tried a sample of Zam-Buk and it did
him a little good, so I bought a 50
oent box. The result was really
amazing. Inside a week's time tho
boils had begun to dry up, and fn
a very short time indeed every one
of them was healed."
Zam-Buk is a sure cure also for
eczema, scalp sores, ringworm, poia-
oned wounds, chronic ulcera, chapped hands, cuts, cold sorea, cracka,
festering sores, eruptions and pustules
due to biood poison, etc. It stops
bleeding and cures piles, fistula, etc.
Is antiseptic; an excellent "first aid."

"Thia apparently harmleas habit,"

lameness, chronic numbness, ascending paralysis, cramps, varicose veins

of the elbow and wrist, the groin and
the armpit, contains nerves and
blood vessels which fire less protected

kind which were in crying need of a
dose of the oil that I can have Mttle
