fContiinii'il i
It was tho most enthusiastic camp-
meeting that had been held thereabout for years, nil the farmers anil !
their wives and their daughters declared, as they clambered into their
wagons and carry-alls and jogged
slowly homeward. The old traveling
evangelical minister was a success,
they voted, and they would have
been well pleased, to have heard him
As for the minister himself, he was
glad to see the country people enjoy his exhortations so thoroughly.
And he wondered, too, why the fair-
haired, handsome young man and
the pretty, dark-eyed young girl
should linger after all fhe rest had
departed to talk with ^lim; and yet,
after a few desultory remarks had
been made, he was not so very much
surprised when he wus called upon
to wed them. He was only too willing, and bid them clasp each other's hands nnd stand before him.
Despite the firm pressure of Glen-
denning's lingers closing over her
own, the girl trembled. It was such
a solemn thing, this marriage ceremony. How blue tho sky looked
through tho network of green leaves,
anil how green the grass was beneath her feet, with its nodding daisies and harebells and timid buttercups. It seemed to take the old minister an age to adjust his spectacles,
open the sacred Book, and find the
place. And in the interim how tho
faco of tho heavens changed! The
sun hid his face behind a cloud and
the light of tho summer day dark-
eneu; the wind sighed among tho
branches of the trees, like spirits in
distress; a bird that was twittering
but a moment since on a bough over her head flew oft with a startled
cry. But neither the cloud, nor tho
wind, nor the bird warned the girl
that sho was taking a step which
she would rue in anguish more bitter than death during all tho years
of her after  life.
"Make haste if you please, good
sir, exclaimed Olcndenning, impatiently. "It is blowing up for a
storm and it will be down upon us
before we can reach home."
"The knot will be tied as quickly
as it can be done, sir," returned the
minister, who had by this time
found the place in his book.
Five minutes, and the words Were
uttered which could never be unsaid,
and Neva, fair, innocent Neva, was
the lawfully wedded wife of Glendenning. Then the old gentleman
drew from his pocket a package of
marriage certificates and proceeded
to  (ill  one out.
"I have so many affairs of this
kind to attend to as I travel about
from village to village that I always cany them about with me
nowadoys," *he explained.
Here, again, an unexpected dilemma -presented itself. Oscar Glendenning was -obliged to give the namo
of Koger instead of his own. Por an
instant he had hesitated when the
I quosl ion of namo camo up.
"It can not matter in point of law
whether I say Roger or Oscar," ho
said to himself. "It is the man my
little Neva is marrying, not tho
name. I can straighten all that out
later iri explaining the matter to
her." He did not wish to startle
her by mentioning it at that all-important epoch of their lives. And
upon this one point, dear reader,
rests all the sorrow of the girl's future. Only a few words! Ah! how
much   they  mean 'tp, tho  two  stand-
ting his  coming,   was
ient, a\ii from the next

room he heard   the  footsteps  of  N
va's     mother   rapidly     approaching.
Glendenning had  buiijly  time  to   release her ere the mower entered.
"Good-bye,'; he said, extending his
hand to the girl.
"Good-bye," she murmured, striving hard to keep back nor tears.
And, With a lingering glance, he
turned, then walked rapidly from tho
room and from the house.
for it, and when they Htched it they
found him leaning against the pillar of the porch with a smile on his
lips. He had preached his last sermon in this world, and had set forth
on the road ho had so long pointed
out to others. And thus it happened (hat tho record of-the marriage
just solemnized never reached the office of the count}' clerk to be duly
li.ed there.
Meanwhile, the newly made bride
and groom slowly wended their way
back to the old farm-house, planning, as only tho young and hopeful
can who have life before them, the
happy future they were to pass with
each other. That walk homeward
was the happiest hour of Neva Glcn-
denning's life How pitiful it is that
joy is so fleeting and sorrow lingers
so long by our side!
At the gate they saw Neva's mother. She did not realize then, but
she knew afterward, why the girl ran
to her, flung her white arm around
her neck, covering her face with
kisses and tears.
"Such i.n experience as we have
had a little while ago!" began Mrs.
Gray, excitedly. "Three constables
from the next county wero in the
house. They wore on a search for
some fugitive whom they have be«K>
tracking down for over two months.
He is somewhere hereabouts, they
say. Ugh! it makes me shudder even
to think of it. Why, with su h men
prowling about we are not safe from
being murdered in our bods any
night. I shall have all the dogs kept
in tho house after this night."
Glendenning listened like one dazed. There was no doubt in his mind
but that he was the fugitive they
were hunting down.
"Did they mention the name of tho
man they were looking for?" he asked with whito lips, speaking with
"No. They did mention, however,
that it was useless to call him by
any name, for, ten chances to one
he went under an assumed one."
"Did they describe him?" asked
Glendenning, still in that unearthly,
hoarse voice.
"Yes, they inquired minutely ol
one of the farm-hands, for every one
else about the house was at the far
end of the orchard. He does not understand good English and did not
understand half the questions they
asked of him. They rode on, but will
be back this way to-morrow. He
caught that much of their conversation."
Glendenning's face had turned a
ghastly white as he listened, but he
did not utter a word lest his voice
should betray his emotion. A little
later he came to Nova as she was
clearing away the supper dishes
alone in the wide, cool farm kitchen.
"I must have a word with you,
Neva," he said, hoarsely. "I—I—am
called suddenly away from here. One
of the farmers below here who is
going over to the village has consented..to take me. I must go."
He saw the words strike her as
lightning strikes a fair flower. Tho
glass she held in her hand fell from
her nerveless fingers and crashed into  a thousand pieces on tho floor.
"You are going to leave mc, Roger?" she breathed, faintly, trembling
llko a loaf ' in a bitter, swirling
. "Listen to the rest, Neva,"' he
said. "You are to join mo. I have

Plutocrat Master of England's High Social Circles and Begins Now to

author, -writes: Plutocracy spells snobbery always. The class which has established Itself on top always will receive deference from the class which
ls struggling up to gain admission to
those ranks. There is no hope of admission to them without money, and
heneo plutocracy means snobbery. As
we are the most plutocratic nation *n
Europe, we are also the most snobbish.

plead that the snob ls by way of being
  an idealist.   He reveres a social status

"May you hnvo a happy life of
it," hq added, placing his trembling
hand upon the girl's dark head. She
thanked him through her happy
tears. The certificate was duly mado
out and handed to her, nnd he
watched them as, hand in hand, they
turned from nim at length and walked down the magnolia-liordcred road
together—watched them until a bend
in the road hid them from his view.
"May Heaven find pardon for the
thought, but I do not quite liko his
faco," he mutt&red, as he- mounted
his horse and rode slowly away in
an opposite 'direction. "The girl' is
like a mountain snow-drop, with a
soul as pure and white, while he is
of the world, worldly to the heart's
core. Nature never makes a mistake
in her handwriting on the human
face, and fate either marked that,

and polished though he be. I must

Would make a note of it in my memorandum but for my being so unlucky as to forget my pen and pocket  ink-well."
But the old preacher never reached the village that he set out for.
Feeling faint, he stopped at the first
farm-house for a glass of water. He

"Oh, Roger!" sho sobbed hysterically, clinging to him, "it breaks my
heart to leave home! I—"
"It must bo as you wish, Neva,"
he said, gravely. "Your will must be
my law. If you prefer to remain here
a few months until I can return for
you, I—I—am forced to consent,
much as such a decision would disappoint me."
"My place is by your side, Roger," sobbed the girl. "I must do
what you think best. I—I—will join
you at the place you spoke of, and
my earnest prayer will be that lather and mother will forgive me."
Ho took her in his arms and kissed her lips. It touched him to see
how blindly and implicitly she trusted him. And she wus the only ono
in the wide, wide world who behoved in him. Ho held her reverently in
his arms one littlo moment, the
young bride whom he had just wed
ded ^^^^^
How dreary the house seemed! Every hour In the day she found herself listening for his step or h.s
voice When the darkness of night
fell, tho girl crept to her lonely
room, throw herself upon her couch.
and cried herself to sleep, and in
her dreams his face haunted her. Ah,
dear Heaven, how lonely it was
without him!
Every one noticed Neva's depression, and attributed it at once to
the departure of handsome, graceful

"I saw that almost a fortnight
ago, and it troubled me, I can tell
you," returned his wife. "He was
very bright, but I thank goodness he
has gone for good. She will mope a
little while, no doubt, but she is
very young, and she will soon forget him."
"I tell you what, wifo, it don't do

man's got a susceptible young darter," said Farmer Gray, as he puffed vigorously at his pipe. "This here

Tho long day drew to a close, as
all days must, and "Night drew her
sable curtains, and pinned them
with a star."
Every one at the farm-house retired early; it seemed long hours at
that, from nine o'clock at night until four in the morning.
Neva gave her father and mother
such a hysterical hugging and kissing, when she bade them good-night,
that they wondered at it.
"Poor child! she's worrited still
over tho going of Glendenning,"
muttered the farmer, brushing a tear
from his eye as the door closed after her. He made no remark concerning tho matter to his wife, lest the
affair might troublo her mind. "It
will soon all como out right," muttered the farmer; and, still thinking
over the matter, he dropped off into
an uneasy sle-
lln-ilnrj  Milk That Mny Be Vended
at Moderate Cost.
What Is to be done for the grent
mass of people who cannot afford to
buy certified milk delivered In glass
jars ut nn advance price? The following scheme has been suggested to milk
producers by the health authorities of
one city:
Make the milking pail, shipping can
and delivery can one vessel, holding
about fifteen quarts, with a small 5%
Inch opening nnd a tight cover. Milk
through a sterilized cheesecloth strainer
directly into this" can until it Is full;
throw the'stralnors Into a pall; put
ou the cover and sink the can in Ice
■water. This can Is shipped by rail, or
curried ou the peddler's wagon, and
used for a delivery cau.
This milking pall and cheesecloth
strainer must be sterilized by steam
or simply by putting tho pall containing some water nnd strainers on the
stove to boll for five minutes. A cooling, tank should be mnde so that it
overflows at a level just below the cover of tbe can. This scheme ought to
materially lower the cost of clenu milk.
For the house peddling we offer one or
two suggestions: The nsunl method of
using a quart dipper or a lightly closed
pall with a spout that can be corked;
then tbe peddler tutus tlie pail upside
down to mix the milk, removes tbe
cork and pours out tbe required amount
Into the customer's glass or tin quart
measure, the cleanliness of which the
customer is responsible for.
tho most offensive properties to the
superficial eye of the observer of social life. "Tommy," said Byron of
Moore, "dearly loves a lord." Your snob
dearly loves a lord. But that Is a detail ln his character, for he has a perfect social code by which he directs his
life. He has been In existence so long
now that he has organized himself. He
has become almost respectable by reason of his antiquity. And his opinions
and ideals have obtained currency ln
all classes of the community. They
have tainted the once Independent and
autocratic views at the aristocracy.
However stupid the aristocracy might
be, lt at least developed Its own ideals
and habits in former days. To-day it
has accepted the traditions of the snob.
To the snob (and through him to the
English social world generally) lt Is essential to have gone to a public school.
One recalls Du Maurler's picture of Sir
Gorglus Midas regretting he had not
had the advantages of Eton to the duke,
and his grace In turn regretting that
he had. The public school has been
taken over by the snob. In the famous
Victorian days thore -were pursuits definitely barred to "gentlemen." who
must either enter army or navy or become barrister or parson or doctor lf ln
want of a profession. But changing
times have changed all that, although
the snob still has his preferences. Theso
professions are the "safest"; they convey respectability.
The snob remains with us with certain altered characteristics. Once he
aspired to reach an aristocracy which
was by no means founded on wealth,
and his aim was thus not wholly Ignoble. But the wealth of the mtddlo
class has contaminated society, and tho
old ideals have been supp—.-ited by the
new ideal of .noney. Plutc .-acy reigns
supreme and unashamed In London society, and the snob no longer merely
loves a lord; he loves a wealthy man.
If one Is to judge by the papers, London society ia made up of Americans
and continentals. Occasionally English
names appear, but the cosmopolitan
element bulks largest ln Importance.
The cosmopolitanism of society only
became possible by reason of the snob.
He pushes his way in, and the sicial
circles which once would have been
shut against him open to receive him
warmly. The plutocrat Is master of
the situation and is beginning to dictate terms.
It Is he now (or she) who 'breeds Independent opinions and starts new fash-
Ions and generally Imposes his (or her)
will on society.   .
Couple Married In London While Liv*
ing on Continent,
Inquiries by the Zurich police haver
brought to light an extraordinary story
of the alleged marriage In a London
church of a couple who at the time-
were on the Continent.
M. Blarek and his wife, the latter of
Austrian nationality, were recently arrested at Zurich as dangerous Anarchists. Investigations resulted I— the-
discovery that the couple had been,
marriod by a remarkable method. They
sent papers relating to themselves to
a friend in London, who, it Is stated,
took them to a clergyman, with tho
result that the marriage ceremony was
celebrated, although the bride and
bridegroom were at Zurich. English,
marrlage laws have become notorious
In Switzerland, adds our correspondent,
and the term "married in England" ia
one of reproach.
It Is possible that an explanation of
our correspondent's message may be
found ln the unscrupulous personation
by paid agents of the couple who desired a record of their English marriage. The marriage laws Of many
Continental countries impose restrictions not known in Britain, such, for

Their Virtues.
A discourse on beneficent microbe.)
was delivered by the famous scientist.
Sir Michael Foster, at the opening of
the new baoterlologloal laboratory presented to the R.othamstead experimental station by Mr. J. F. Mason, M. P.
Sir Michael thinks that bacteriological research may show that microbes,
so far from 'being enemies of humanity, play an Important part ln providing the nation's food.
He declared that In the work at
Rothamr.tcad there had hitherto been
a lack of any study of the part whlcb,
mlarobca play in the work of the soil
and the plant. We heard a good deal,
he said, of microbes which were our
very good friends, and some of the-
best of them were those working silently and unseen ln the soil.
The struggle for existence waa
fundamentally a struggle for nitrogen,
and there were microbes in the soil
which were making the nitrogen of
the air eatable by humanity.
"Thanks to Mr. Mason's gift," continued Sir Michael, "I hope that much
light will be thrown on the action of
microbes in producing our natural

The value of ambulance dogs ln time
of war was demonstrated at the annual
inspection of the Royal Army Medical
Corps (volunteers), by Col. Sloggett, In
Hyde Park. Three dogs train for the
purpose by Major Richardson, of Forfarshire, were put through a variety
Q'f experimental work in finding
"wounded" soldiers, and the trials proved most effective.
The animals run about. with loud
bells on their neck, and protected from
being fired on by wearing a saddle
with a large Geneva red cross. They
proceed in advance of the stretcher-
bearers, and on discovering a patient
sit down to "mark" or watch him till
the ambulance arrives. Dogs trained
by Major Richardson were extensively
used by the Russians in the war in
Manchuria, and they were pronounced
to be partlculatly useful.
The excellent ambulance Instincts
of the degs was of great Interest to a
large crowd, who keenly regarded
every detail of their movements.
Major Richardson was warmly congratulated on the success of the exhibition.
Two of the men of the corps fainted
on arriving ln the park after their

Jenny Lind's Son.
The fact that W. R. Goldschmldt has
Just been appointed chancery registrar
of the royal courts of Justice of England recalls an interesting romance that
perhaps not many people know—that
he ls a son of the famous songstress of Philadelphia Tress
the laBt century, Jenny Lind. Nor ls It
perhaps known outside of the family
circle that his father, Otto Goldschmldt,
celebrated his seventy-eighth birthday
on Aug. 21. It is just a little more than
half a century since the famous musical professor accompanied the Swedish
Sir David Wllkle.
In the June Issue of The Strand, says
a correspondent to T. P. Weekly, ther»
ls an article on "Artists' Models," particularly ln  reference to cases  Wher»
men have sat for women and vice versa.    One of the Illustrations given  Is
"Wllkie's  Fiddler,"   and  In  the  legend
underneath the picture we are told that
the old woman ln lt (no doubt referring to  the fiddler's wife)  waa taken
from the actor's own head by means of
a mirror. Now, fhe head1 that was Uius
got by Wllkle ls  that of the servant
girl, who Is leaning on the baok of her
mistress' chair and grinning at the antics of young hopeful with the bellows
and the poker, who Is Imitating the fiddler.   An  excellent  likeness of Wllkle
It ls. He was not what might be called
a pretty man, his face being the typical Scotch one, and that, as James Bos-
well said when flrst introduced to Dr.
Johnson, was a thing which he oould)
not help; but to suppose that the coarse,
almost brutal-looking face of the fiddler's wife was drawn from his own ls
nothing short of a libel on the artist.
It ls told with reference to this very
figure ln the picture that a lady friend
of the artist, visiting his studilo whilo
the picture was ln progress, remarked,
''Man,  you've made  the fiddler's wife-
very -ugly."   "Well,  madam," was  the
artists reply, "fiddlers' wives are not,
as a rule, up to a very high standard
of beauty."   I might Just add that the
figure of the man cracking his Angers
to amuse the child ln tho same picture
ls said to have been drawn from Mao.

And Undermining Health by Useless Worry--

overwork, and by neglecting to take
proper nourishment, rest und sleep,
strength and vitality arc frittered uway
and no reserve force is left to withstand

Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is valued because it actually increases the amount
of nerve force in the body, overcomes
the symptoms arising from exhausted
nerves, and gives that strength .and
confidence in mind and body which is
necessary to success in life.
Nervous headache, brain fag, inability
to concentrate the mind, loss of sleep,
irritability, nervousness and despondency are among tlie indications of ex
huusted nerve force. These are the
warnings which suggest the necessity
or such help as is best supplied by Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food.
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 nearly three years my
bowels were so loose and watery that I
was continually weak and run down.
In spite of the many remedies used I
gradually grew worse and worse. I
could- scarcely get around ihe house
and suffered a great deal fiom backache, stomach and kidney troubles.
Dr. Chased Nerve Food proved to be
exactly what I needed and by keeping
ip 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.

rest under the protection of her own

about the palace, saying: "Make no

His  Receptions Were Conducted With
Princely Formality.
When he arrived ln London the enthusiasm of the English people seemed
to know no bounds. His entry was like
that of a national hero returning from
a victorious campaign—the multitudes
crowding the streets were Immense. He
appeared In his picturesque Hungarian
garb, standing upright in his carriage,
with his saber at his side and surrounded by an equally picturesque retinue.
But when he began to speak, and his
voice with Its resonant and at the same
time mellow sound poured forth Its harmony over the heads of the throngs ln
classic English, deriving a peculiar
charm Irom the soft tinge of foreign
accent, then the enthusiasm of the listeners  mocked all description.
Kossuth had been offered the hospitality of the house of a private citizen of London who took an especial
Interest ln the Hungarian cause, and
there during his sojourn In the British
capital he received his hdmlrers and
friends. A kind of court surrounded
him; his companions, always ln their
Hungarian national dress, maintained
ln a ceremonious way his pretension of
his still being the rightful governor of
Hungary. He granted audiences llko a
prince, and when he entered the room
he was announced by an aide-de-camp
as the "governor." All persons rose and
Kossuth saluted them with grave solemnity.
Among the exiles of other nations
these undemocratic formalities created
no llttle displeasure. But lt was Kossuth's Intention to produce certain effects upon public opinion, not in his
own, but In his people's behalf, and as
to that end lt may have seemed to him
necessary to Impress upon the Imagination of the Englishmen the picture of
Hungary under her own governor, and
also to Illustrate to them the firm faith
of the Hungarians themselves In the
Justice of their cause, It was not Improper that he should have used such
picturesque displays as means for the
accomplishment of his purpose.—-Carl
Schurz ln McClure's,

The Ladies' Aid of Mt. Pleasant
Presbyteitan Ohuroh were "At Home"
to the congregation and friends on
Thursday eveniug of last week. The
impromptu program was very ploaslng
and bright and enjoyed by
all present. A piano solo by little Miss
Rae was well executed. Readings by
Mrs. Hioks aud Miss Luke wero very
well rendered. Miss Maud Burns, Mrs
Hicks, Mrs. Chas. Mowat and Mr. Lister
gave vocal selections. Miss Maggie
Boss, a popular Mt. Pleasant vocalist,
gave the closing solo with fine effect.
Dainty refreshments and conversation
followed the program.
The Silver Anniversary of Ihe
Woman's Foreign Missionary Society
was celebrated by die Missionary
Messengers of Mt. Pleasant Methodist
Church by a splendid entertainment on
Tuesday evening, whioh was well-
attended. Rev. A. E. Hethorington
presided and the following program
was given: Chorus, by the Messengers;
address, bv Mrs. W. E. Pesoott; recitation, by Miss Grace Zimmermann; solo,
by Miss McQuillan; address, by Rev.
W. E. Pescott; chorns, by the Messengers ; reading of the Messengers yearly
report, by Miss Alberta Balf onr; solo,
by Miss McQuillan; chorus, by the
Mrs. Pescott gave a historical review
of Woman's Foreign Missionary Society
which was started in 1881, and told of
the early struggles and its triumph, and
of the work beiug carried on by the
Society, over $911,000 having been raisod
for all purposes during the past year for
ita work. Rev. W. E. Pescott gave an
inspiring address on Missionary Work,
showing how the Christian Religion
is spreading throughout the world. Tne
gain in India was SO per cent during
the past deoade, thore being at the present time 3,000,000 Christians in India.
In Japan there are 66,000 Protestant
Christians, combined with the Roman
Catholics there are 158,000 Christians in
Japan, a gain of 400 per cent within
twenty years. The spread of the
Gospel was equally gratifying in China,
Africa aud among the Indians of B. O.
The largest church in the world was at
Helio. Hawaii, forty years ago all the
natives of Hawaii were cannibals. All
the islauds in the Southern Pacific were
Christianized. What was needed was
more Missionaries, especially young men
and women to go forth and help win
the world for Christ. Miss Alberta
Balfour's report showed that the Mt
Pleasaut Missionary Messeneers had
contributed over $100 for Missionary
work, being the largest amount in B.C.,
they had won the Bauner for this
year—the Banner was on exhibition.
At the beginning ef the year there were
1? members, at present there are 47,

If a woman wants to be in fashion
this winter she must be trimmed, muoh
trimmed, as to gowns, hats and even
fur ooats. Even though one's tastes
are Quakerish and one's income on the
wrong side of nothing, trimmings must
be had. Moreover, when a woman
visits the trimming deportment and
sees the colorings, textures and new designs, she quickly gets over the notion
of having her gown made plainly.
A glint of gold is seen in most of the
new trimmings, though the metallic
effeote of certain seasons are not obser-
able. The combination of gay silk embroidery or ribbon work quite overcome
this defect.
A number of raised forget-me-not de-
sings in exquisite pastel-colors on net
and silk textures are. particularly lovely
among the trimmings. Black and white
chantilly nets have the patterns marked
by these little blossoms in pink lavender
and blue, with green leaves and an
intricate interweaving of gilt thread.
These embroidered nets - are shown in
both edging and insertion.
The radium braidB are especially at*
tractive this season. It is said that fibre
silk braids have become a staple and
will remain In vogue as long as trim*
mings are required for the glorification
ot women's apparel. As to patterns,
geometrical and Greek lines seem to
predominate, although the plain and
scroll designs still maintain their popularity. Judging by the lines carried in
the large stores the braids in diamond
weave are of equal importance with the
Passementeries and handmade trim'
mings are in demand for dressy costumes, and much attention is being
given cords, tassels, pendants, woven
bands, frogs und military loops by the
city stores As the season advances the
nso of these trimmings seems to be
growing more general.
' Black, all-over embroideries are one of
those staples in dress trimmings that
somehow always seem to be in good
style. They vary a little from, those
shown last season in that they are more
open and airy than formerly.

It is hut natural that the influence of
the popularity ot elaborate trimmings
should be strongly felt in the button
field. This is surely a button year, it
ono can judge from the quantities of
them to be seen in the city Btores and
on the most up-to-date of new gowns.
But do uot get the impression that we
aro to fasten our waists with buttons in
the same old-fashoned way as in nine
cases out of ten, the buttons used are for
ornamentation only. They are put on
strappings and revers.
The cost of some these buttons is surprising. Last-week I was quite dum-
f bunded wheu pricing some buttons to
find they were $18 and $20 a dozen-
They were truly beautiful and it wonld
only take oue or two of them to put the
needed finish to a wrap or dress.
Gold seems to be as evicent in the
new buttons as it every othoo kind of
trimming. Very many of these gold
and jeweled buttons are nearly as huge
as a silver dollar, and one. or two of
them aro vory popular for fur coats.
A very novel button is of black velvet
set in silver and striped in silver bands,
studded with rhinestones.
These brilliant stones are used more
than Ivor and are combined witb oxidised silver, gilt, mother-of-pearl, in
waving stripes, squares, scroll and circles.
Steel point buttons are iu marked
favor but there is alno a demand tor the
tieted metal buttons in old tapestjy
One of the deportment stores is showing somthing quite original in the way
of plaid buttons in glass and enamel
Undoubtedly, they will be very popular
as the seasou progresses. These buttons
are decidedly gay, with alt 'mate wida
and narrow stripe in deep blues, dork
reds, combined in all sorts of widths.

Some peanuts that are bought ready
roasted are of a light yellow color.
Others, however, are pronounced brunettes. There is a reason for this.
The great American peanut will remain crisp only a dny or two after

Idly, so that two days after roasting
the finest uuts lose their crlspness and

Cured    Tlirough the    Rich, Red    Blood
Dr. William's l'ink Tills Actually
Thousands of women suffer from
headaches, dizziness, langour and
nervousness. Few realize that their
misery all comes from the bad state of
their blood. They take one thing fur
their hend, and another for their stomach, a third for their nerves. And yet
all the while it is simply their blond
that is the cause of all their trouble.
Dr. William's Pink Pills cure all these
and other blood troubles because they
actually make new, rich, red blood.
Mrs. J. H. MclAi'thur, St. Thomas, Ont.,
says: "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
done me a world of good. For about
eighteen months I was a constant sufferer. I was terribly run down and the
least exertion left ine fagged out. I
slept badly at night and this further
weakened me, and finally I had to give
up housekeeping and go boarding as 1
was quite unable to do any housework.
I took doctor's medicine but it was of
little or no benefit. One day a neighbor
told me how much benefit she had derived from Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and
advised me to try them. I sent and got
three boxes, and by the time I had
used them I could feel a change for
the better. Then I got four boxes more
and before they were all gone my health
was fully restored. To see me now one
would not think II had ever been sick
for a day, and I can honestly say I
owe my renewed health to Dr. Williams
Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
greatest cure there is for the weakness and backaches and sideaehes of
anaemia, all the distress of indigestion,
all the pains and aches of rheumatism,

The Toothbrush  Plant.
We have heard of sermons In stones,
but certainly not till recently of toothbrushes in .trpes. The genus gouania
embraces upwnWI of twenty species of
climbing shrubs, most of which inhabit
the forest of tropical America. The
most interesting of these is the G. Dom-
ingensis, a common creeper in the West
Indies and Brazil. In Jamaica It is
called chaw-stlck, on account of its
thin, flexible stems being chewed as an
agreeable stomachic. Toothbrushes are
also made by cutting pieces of chaw
stick to a convenient length and fraying out the ends, and a tooth powder to
accompany the use of the brush is prepared by pulverizing ti.d dried stems.

Biting Babbits.
If you care for the health of your
rabhits do not omit to clean their
hutches thoroughly at least once a day.
Look out, however, to see that you do
not get bitten. A surly old buck or a
doe with a litter of young may make a
s'tvage attack on the back of your hand.
It Is as well to put on a pair of gloves
and use a small hoe with a long handle
to scrape the floors of the hutches.
plechase had been held, with the Rats
as competitors against the Quonks for
a grand prize of one thousand blue
bottle flies, and that the Quonks had
come out victorious.
At any rate, the Quonks had ever considered themselves vastly superior to
the Rats, much to the secret indignation of the latter fellows. Of late, indeed, the Rats had become openly
abusive and dlsagreeatle They had
got Into the way of flocking over
to the Quonks' Saturday ball games,
for instance, and calling out nasty
things to the Quonks on the diamond.
"Just look at Popeyes!" one yelled
"Goodness, what a swell he Is under
his chin!"  another added
"Grinny mouth!" criec** Tnother.
"Banty legs!" yelled another. And
numerous other Insulting epithets
they hurled nt the Quonks, till the
Quonks were thoroughly exasperated.
"What are you, anyhow, hut u^ly,

Affectionate Cats
CATS are very affectionate by nature,.
and If puss shows no attachment to
her owner or any member of the famiiy
it is a sure sign that she has Buttered
Ill-treatment, or. at least, neglect. That
old Idea that cats love places better
than persons would soon be exploded it"
Queens Taller Than. Kings.
The queens of the world arc taller
than the kings. King Edward is
some Inches shorter than Queen
Alexandra. The Czar is a head below
the Czarina. Kaiser Wilhelm is of the
medium height, but the German Em-,
press is tall, anil that ls why the
proud Kaiser will never consent to be
photographed beside his wne, unless sho
jsits while he stands.
The King or Pui'lugal, though stouter, is less tall than his Queen. Even
the Prince of Wales is a good four
inches shorter than tlie Princess, and
the young King nf Spain Is rather below the height of Queen Victoria.

It is character that obunts in a nation
as in a man. It is a good thing to have
a dean, fine, intellectual development
in a nation, to produce orators, artists,
successful business men; but it is an
infinitely greater thing to have those
solid qualities which we group together
under the name of character—sobriety,
steadfastness; the sense o'f obligation
towards one's neighbors and one's Ood,
hard common Sense, Hnd combined with
it, the gift Of generous enthusiasm
towards whatever is right. These are
the qualities which go to make up true
national groatuoss,—President Roosevelt
The men who have the capacity to
workand are content to work are in no
danger of making failures.
Success ndver comes to tho man wfad
is watching the clock fpr fear that he
might work overtime. The man who
succeodfi is the' man who is not merely
satisfied to do the work laid out for him,
but willing and glad to do' more.
How to produce' wealth is another
question. One answer is thorough
organization. Better/methods of conducting business ore coming into rapid
adoption, and the man who works with
a system has common Sense and the
right material in him, cah make his
way to the top, no matter how humble
his start Or how poor his circumstances.
No cheat.-'? nor bargaining will evoi
get a single' thing out of nature's
"establishment" at half-price; Do we
want to be stroBg?—we must work. To
bs happy?—wo must be kind. To be
wise?—we must look and. think.—
