NEXT day Trove went home. He
took with him many a souvenir of his first term, including
a scarf that Polly had knit for
him and the curious things he took
from the Frenchman Leblanc and
which he retained partly because they
■were curious and partly because Mrs.
Leblanc hnd been anxious to get rid of
them. He soon rejoined bis class at
Hillsborough, having kept abreast of
lt in history and mathematics by work
after school and over the week's end.
He was content to fall behind in the
classics, for they were easy, and ln
them his arrears gave him no* terror.
Walking for exercise, he laid the plan
of bis tale and had written some bits
of verse. Of an evening he went ofteu
to the Sign of the Dial and there read
Ills lines nnd got friendly but severe
"Is there'tfnything you do not know?"
Trove ino.ui»ed.
"Much." snid the tinker, "Including
the deptb o' me own folly. A man
that displays knowledge hath need o'
Indeed. Trove rarely came for a talk
with Darrel when he failed to discover
something new In him—a further reach
of ihonpht and sympathy or some uninspected treasure of knowledge. The
Tinker loved a laugh nnd would often
aeurch I) Is memory for gome phrase of
bard or philosopher apt enough to provoke It. Of his great store of knowledge he made no vainer use.
Trove had been overworking, and
about the middle of June they went for
a week ln the woods together. They
walked to Allen's the first day and
after a brief visit there went off In the
deep woods, camping by a pond in
thick timbered bills. Coming to the
lilied shore, they sat down awhile to
rest. A hawk was sailing high above
tbe still water, Crows began to call in
the treetops. An eagle sat on a dead
pine at the water's edge and seemed to
be peering down at his own shadow.
Two deer stood in a marsh on the farther shore looking over at them. Near
by were the bones of some animal and
tbe fresh footprints of a panther.
Sounds echoed far in the hush of the
unbroken wilderness.
"See, boy," said Darrel, with a little
gesture of his right hand, "the theater
o' the woods! See the sloping hills,
tree above tree, like winding galleries!
Here is a coliseum old, past reckoning.
Why. boy, long before mon saw the
Seven Hills it was old. Yet see how
new It is, how fresh its color, how
strong its timbers! See the muiiy seats,
each with a good view, an' the multitude o' the people, yet most o' them are
hidden. Ten thousand eyes are looking
down upon us. Tragedies an' comedies o' the forest are enacted here.
Many a thrilling scene has beld the
stage—the spent deer swimming for
his life, tbe painter stalking bis prey
or leaping on lt."
" 'Tis a cruel part," snld Trove. "He
is the murderer of the play. I cannot
understand why there are so many
villains ln Its cast. Both tbe cat and
tbe serpent baffle me."
"Marry, boy, the world is a great
school, an' this little drama o' the good
God is part of It," snid Darrel. "An"
the play hath a great moral—thou shalt
learn to use thy brain or die. Now,
there may be many perils In this land
o' the woods, so many that all its people must learn to think or perish by
them. A pretty bit o' wisdom It ls,
eor. It keeps tbe great van moving—
ever moving—in the long way to perfection. Now, among animals a growing brain works the legs of Its owner,
sending them far on diverse errands
until they are strong. Mind thee, boy,
perfection o' brain an' body Is the aim
o' nature. The cat's paw an' the serpent's coll are but tbe penalties o'
weakness an' folly. The world is for
the strong. Therefore God keep thee
eo or there be serpents will enter tby
blood aB' devour thee—millions o'
Tbey eat a little'time In silence, looking at the shores of the pond.
"Have you ever felt the love passion ?" Said Darrel.
"Well, there's a girl of the nnme of
Polly," Trove answered.
"Ah, Polly! She o' the red lips an'
tbe dark eye," said Darrel, smiling.
"She's one of a thousand." He clapped
bis bnnd upon his knee merrily and
sang a sentimental couplet from an
old Irish ballad.
"Have ye won her affection, boy J"
be added, bli band on tbe boy's arm.
"I think I bave."
"God Jove thee! I'm glad to bear It,"
eald tbe old man. "Bbe Is a living
wcnder, box. ii !ivU-_-_._pQ_der-..U- had
I tt'y youth I'd'give l_e--\.*r_'fy."
"Since her mother cannot? afford to
do it I wish to send her away to
school," said Trove,
"Tut, tut, boy. Thou hast barely
eno-jgh for thy own schooling."
"I've $82 in my pocket," said Trove
proldly. "I do not need lt. The Job
ln the mill—that will feed me and pay
my room rent, and my clothes will do
me for another year."
"On my word, boy, I like lt ln thee,"
said Darrel, "but surely she would not
take thy money."
"t could not offer it to her, but you
might go there, and perhaps she would
take it from you."
"Capital!" the tinker exclaimed. "I'll
see lf I can serve thee. Marry, good
youth, I'll even give away thy money
an' take credit for thy benevolence.
Teacher, philanthropist, lover—I believe thou'rt ready to write."
"The plan of my first novel la complete," said Trove. "That poor thief-
he shall be my chief character—tbe
man of whom you told me."
"Poor man! God make thee kind to
him," said the tinker. "An thou'rt
willing, I'll hear o' him tonight. When
the firelight flickers—that Is the time,
boy, for tales."
They built a rude lean-to, covered
with bark and bedded with fragrant
boughs. Both lay In the firelight, Darrel smoking bis pipe, as tbe night fell.
"Now for thy tale," said the tinker.
The tale was Trove's own solution of
his life mystery, shrewdly come to after a long and careful survey of the
known facts. And now, shortly, time
was to put the seal of truth upon It
and daze him with astonishment and
fill him with regret of bis cunning. It
should be known that he had never
told Darrel or any one of his coming
in the llttle red sleigh.
He uy thinking for a time after the
tinker spoke; then he began:
"Well, the time is 1835, the place a
New Englnnd city on the sea. Chapter
I—A young woman is walking along a
street, with a child sleeping In her
arms. ' She Is dnrk skinned—a Syrian.
It is growing dusk. The street is deserted save by her and two sailors,
who are approaching her. Tbey, too,
are Syrians. One seems to strike her—
it is mere pretense, however—and she
falls. The other seizes the child, who,
having been drugged. Is still nsleep. A
wagon ls waiting near. They drive
jiway hurriedly, their captive under a
blanket. The kidnapers make for the
woods In New Hampshire. Officers of
the law drive them far. They abandon
their horse, tramping westward over
trails In the wilderness, bearing the
boy In a sock of sailcloth, open at tha
top. They had guns and killed their
(ood as they traveled. Snow came
aeep. By ana by game was scarce
and tbey had grown weary of bearing
the boy on their backs. One waited In
the woods with the little lad while tha
other went away to some town or city
for provisions. He came back, hauling
them in a little sleigh. It was mnch
like those made foi the delight of the
small boy In every land of snow. It
had a box painted red and two bobs
and a little dashboard. They used It
for the transportation of boy and impedimenta.
"In tbe deep wilderness beyond the
Adlrondacks tbey found a cave ln one
of the rock ledges. They were twenty
miles from auy postoffice, but shortly
discovered one. Letters In cipher were
soon passing between them and their
confederates. They loarned there was
no prospect of get.ing the ransom. He
tbey had thougbi rich was not able to
raise the money they required or any
lnrge sum. Two years went by, and
they abandoned hope. What should
they do with the boy? One advised
murder, but the other defended him. It
was unnecessary, he maintained, to
kill a mere baby, who knew not a
word of English and would forget all
In a month. And murder would only
Increase their peril. Now. eight miles
from their cave was the cabin of a
settler. Tbey passed within a mile of
It on tbelr way out and In. They had
often met the dog of the settler roving
after small game—a shepherd, trustful,
affectionate and ever ready to make
friends. One dny they captured the
dog and took him to their cave. Tbey
could not safely be seen with the boy,
so they planned to let the dog go home
wltb him In a little red sleigh. Now,
tbe settler's cabin was, like that of my
father, on the shore of a pond. It was
round, as a cup's rim, and a mile or
so ln diameter. Opposite the cabin a
trail came to the water's edge, skirting
the pond, save ln cold weather, when
It crossed the Ice. They waited for a
night wben their tracks would soon
disappear. Tben, having made a cover
pf the t_ill-__';i. s.ucU III whit'!, .bev hud
l Crout-t tlie TJoy and stretched" it on
withes and made it fast to tbe sleigh
box, they put the sleeping boy In tbe
sleigh, with bot atones wrapped In paper and a robe of fur to keep him
i warm, hitched tbe dog to lt and came
! over bill and trail to the little pond
I awhile after midnight.   Here they buc-
'.. kled a ring of bells on the dog's neck
j and released him.    He made for his
; home on the clear Ice, the bells and bis
! bark sounding as be ran.   They at the
I cabin heard him coming and opened
their door to dog and traveler.  So came
my bero ln a little red sleigh and was
adopted by the settler aud his wife and
reared by tbem with generous affection.   Well, he goes to school and learns
rapidly and comes to manhood.   It's a
pretty story—that of his life ln the big
woods.    But  now for the  love tale.
He meets a young lady—sweet, tender,
graceful, charming."
"A moment." said Darrel, raising bis
band. "Prithee, boy, ring down the
curtain for a brief parley. Thou say'st
they were Syrians—they that stole the
lad. Now, tell me, hast thou reason
for that?"
"Ample," said Trove. "When they
took him out of the sleigh the first
words he spoke were 'Anah jouhan.'
He used them many times, and while
he forgot they remembered them.
Now, 'Anah jouhan' is a phrase of tbe
Syrian tongue, meaning, 'I am hungry.' "
"Very well," said the old man, with
emphasis, "and sailors. That Is a just
Inference. It was a big port, and far
people came on tbe four winds. Very
well! Now, for the young lady. An'
away with thy book unless I love her."
"She ls from life—a simple hearted
girl, frank and beautiful and"— Trove
hesitated, looking Into tbe dying flre.
"Noble, boy. Make sure o' that, an'
nobler, too, than girls nre apt to be. If
Emulation would measure height with
her see that It stand upon tiptoes."
"So I have planned. The young man
loves her. She Is In every thougbt and
purpose. She bas become as the rock
on which his hope ls founded. Now
he loves honor, too, and all things of
good report. He has been reared a
Puritan. By chance, one day, it comes
to him that his father was a thief."
The boy paused. For a moment they
heard only the voices of the night.
"He dreaded to tell her," Trove continued, "yet he could not ask ber to be
his wife without telling. Tben the
question, Had he a right to tell? For
his father had not suffered the penalty
of the law and, mind you, men thought
him honest"
" 'Tis just," said Darrel. "But tell me,
how came he to know his father was a
"That I am thinking of, and before I
answer, ls there more you can tell me
of him or bis, nsanle?"

Excavations Reveal tha Largest Mastodon  Ever Uncovered In Alaska.
What is perhaps the largest mastodon ever uncovered completely in
Alaska was uncovered during the last
six months at a place near Circle
City by Max L. Lohbrunner. The
exact place of the location of the mastodon is on Alice Creek, a tributary
of Mineral Creek, which flows into
Woodchopper Creek.
To judge of the other dimensions
of the animal it must only be said
that one tusk of the mastodon which
is still intact is over nine feet eight
inches long, and haa a circumference
of eighteen inches. The jaws of the
animal still have teeth four in num-
br- in the jaw. Each of these teeth,
which have been taken out and replaced, weigh fifty pounds apiece.
Tli3 other parts of tho mastodon are
in a poor state of preservation compared with the tusk, although the
bones that have been collected weigh
in the neighborhood of 1,000 pounds.
Lohbrunner, wbo got the bones, dug
them out at a depth of eighty feet
below the surface of the ground. It
took a great amount of care and pains
on his part to see that the bones
were not burned to charcoal while
he was excavating and thawing the
Lohbrunner has moved part of the
animal into storage at Circle City and
will hold it there until the spring
time, when it will be removed to
Seattle, where it will be pnt together
and eventually find its way into the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, if
the Smithsonian Institution does not
get it before that time.
In speaking of his find Lohbrunner
said": "Alice Creek, where I found
this mastodon, is perhaps one of the
most wonderful on earth, from the
standpoint of research. It seems to
be the boneyard that a lot of the prehistoric animals made for in order to
die or to be killed. We have found
on the creek the skeletons of mastodons, muskox, caribou, bear, and i
other animals. If this creek ever goes I
into a hydraulic mining proposition
the world will be astounded with the
many finds of bones of animals of
prehistoric times."
Bishop of London So Describes Married Men.
"Taking them all round, married
men are much looser in their morals
than single men." This afifrmation by
the Bishop of London, England, quite
startled his hearers at. a meeting of
the Council for Promoting Public
Morality. Those present were pleased,
however, to learn, on the Bishop's authority, that London is becoming more
moral, thanks to the efforts of the police. There is still, however, much to
be done. The Bishop Baid he would
never rest content until the open sale
in shops of things to make sin easy
was suppressed.
Underground  London.
Nearly 500 miles of sewers sre situated beneath the feet of London's
population, and this includes only the
large sewers, several of them so large
that a number of boats could float
dowrl them abreast. Some idea of the
enormous cost of druining London
may be gathered from the fact that the
drainage works and machinery alone
cost £8,000,000 sterling.
The three main sewers in London
run from Fleet street to Hampstead,
from Blackfriars to Abbey Mills, and
from Harrow to Old Ford. Connected
with these are a multitude of smaller
i sewers, measuring about twelve feet
in diameter, which makes London one
of the best-drained cities in the world.
A thousand men are employed all
the year round, not even excepting
Sundays, in keeping London properly
drained, and the stupendous total of
j 1,000,000,000 tons of sewage iB chemically treated every twelve months and
{ taken away in sludge vessels to the
North Sea.
| At Barking, where the sludge is
dealt with, there are fourteen sewers
measuring thirty feet across; that is
I t'_. say,  any  one of them would  be
! wide enough for a small tugboat to
pass down. Here the sludge, after be-
1 ing chemically treated, has to go
through enormous iron cages, resembling gigantic colanders, which keep
back solid objects, such as pieces of
wood, old boots, and so forth, whilst
not infrequently valuable articles of
jewelery are found wedged between

Many People Weaken Their Systems
by Dosing with Purgative Medicines
A spring medicine is a necessity.
Nature demands it as an aid to enriching the blood and carrying off tha
impurities that have accumulated during the winter months. Thousand.*
of people, recognizing the necessity
for a spring medicine, dose themselves
with harsh griping purgatives. This,
ls a mistake. Ask any doctor and he-
will tell you that the use of purgative medicines weaken the system and
cannot possibly cure disease. In the?.
spring the system needs building up.
—purgatives weaken. The blood should:
be made rich, red and pure—purgatives cannot do this. What ls needed!
Is a tonic, and the best tonic medical science has yet devised is Dr. Williams Pink Pills. Every dose of this-,
medicine actually makes new, rich,
blood, and this new blood strengthens;
every organ and every part of the-
body. That Is why these Pills banish
pimples and unsightly skin eruptions-.
That Is why they cure headaches,,
backaches, rheumatism, neuralgia andl
a host of other troubles that come-
from poor watery blood. That is why
the men and women who use Dr. Williams Pink Pills eat well and sleep-
well and feel active and strong. Mis*

Cold In the Chest Seemed to be Unmovable
But Cure was Soon Ef footed by
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine
It Is waste of time to use ordinary
cough mixtures for serious colds on
the chest, and time Is of infinite value when   the  lungs  are  In  danger.
The risk is too great, especially
when you wait to think that Dr.
Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine Is for sale in nearly every
store  that  keeps   medicines  at all.
This letter gives you some Idea of
the effectiveness of this great medicine. *
Mrs. A. Barnum, Ingersoll, Ont.,
writes:—"My husband had a very
severe cold on his chest and got so
"bad he could not speak above a
whisper. The cough medicines he tried
.•seemed to have no effect and reading
about Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed
and Turpentine I sent for a bottle.
In two days he was cured and Is very
grateful for such a medicine. He says
we will never be without this medi-
•cine  In  the  house."
The very name of Dr. Chase's Syrup  of Linseed    and    Turpentine     is
sufficient to explain the simple and
yet powerful and well-known ingredients of which this great medicine   is composed.
While linseed sheathes the mouth,
tongue and throat, with a protective
cnating to prevent injury from hard
coughing, turpentine disinfects and
stimulates the ulcerated parts of the
bronchial tubes and lungs and Is almost  specific  for bronchitis.
Other Ingredients which along with
these go to make up Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, soothe
the nerves, loosen the cough, aid expectoration, and by thorough action
on the whole system completely cure
coughs and colds, bronchitis, asthma,
whooping   cough   and   sore   throat.

Why Did They Go?
Why were the early settles of Manitoba drawn so largely from the counties of Huron and Bruce? asks a writer
in Toronto News. Are they more rocky
and less fertile than other Ontario
counties, and did the people go because population over-ran the growth
of wealth, just as Scotchmen have
been popularly supposed to be shoved
out from their barren land to conquer
the world? There may be something in
thnt, but the writer, never having seen
either country, cannot say. But, looking nt the map, and remembering the
process of settling the Western United
States, one is inclined to believe that
proximity and ease of travel had much
to do with it. Steamers ran from both
Lake Huron and Georgian Bny ports
for Duluth long before the Canadian
Pacific Railway was built. Water travel is cheap and the tendency would be
for adventurous spirits to go up to
have a look nt the new country. Some
of them would be seized of its advantages, and after the first score started,
and reports were received of their
prosperous spirits to go up to have a
look at the new country. Some of them
would be seized of its advantages, and
after the first score started, and reports were received of their prosperity in the new land, their relatives and
neighbors would follow. There is no
immigration agent like the prosperous
settler, and so it happened that there
was a large colony from those counties
if. Manitoba before the rest of Ontario
had fairly awakened to the fact that
there was such a place. If that is _*ot
the true explanation, perhaps somebody who knows can give it.

garbage at a municipal plant, and Dr.

without looking nt n clock, sullied forth
•to call on u young lady.   He hammered

get nny response; didn't understand It.
Anybody   else   would   have   regarded
•that ns nn indicntion of some kind or

draw Inferences.   He merely hnnimet-.'d

*or the girl appeared at the door In a
•■dressing gown.    He had a candle In
'tils hand, and tbe dressing gown was
all the clothing he had on, except an
expression of welcome, which was so
thick and so large that lt extended all
"down his front to his Instep and nearly
•obliterated   the   dressing  gown.    Bnt
•Orion didn't notice that this was an
-unpleasant   expression.     He   merely
"walked In.   The old  gentleman  took

usual remarks about the weather nnd
sat down—sat down  and talked and
-talked and went on talking, that old
•man looking nt him vindictively and
-waiting for his chance, waiting treacherously and malignantly for his chance.
Orion had  not  nsked  for the young
lady.   It was not customary.   It was
-understood that a young fellow came
'to see the girl of the house, not the
" founder of  it.    At last Orion got up
and made some remark to the effect
that  probably   the   young   lady   waa
busy and he would go now and call
again. Thnt was the old man's chance,

The Practical Application of the Stenographer's Knowledge
By Cynthia Westerner Alden
Copyright, 180.. by A. S. Barnes & Co.
NOW a word as to the duterent
source- of employment when
you have learned your profession. Business Arms employ perhaps four-fifths of all who are employed.
The age of the typewriter has come
upon us almost Btealtnlly, so that lt is
bad form to send out letters In somebody's doubtful handwriting. The mun
or the Arm that does lt Is set down at
once by its correspondent as either very
eccentric or very hard-up. No matter
which may be the supposition, It ls
one that repels trade. Therefore, ln a
general way, It may be Nuiil tlmt lf you
know of any business house that has no
typewriter at work for It, there Is a
chance that you may be afforded a job
there, lf you can make terms with the
I need not dwell on the necessity of
accuracy In such work. Remember
that every letter is a contract lf It
quotes prices or promises anything; that
your employer can be held ln a court of
law to the performance of what your
typewriter makes him promise to perform. If he dictates to you, "our price
for such and such silk is 75 cents a
yard," and you write out the letter
"$.35," and he signs lt without reading
too carefully, the receiver may answer,
"Ship me 1000 yards of such and such a
silk at quoted price," the silk may be
shipped, and no court will compel the
buyer to pay more than was asked. The
loss will be $400 from that one error.   It
might be ten times as much If the figures were multiplied. And there are recorded cases where $4000 or $6000 has
been the penalty for Just as simple a
1 know the reuder will pardon me for
going Into the concrete ln this way. It
Is so much easier to grasp than abstrac-
tlo.is. It is meant only to impress you,
wnen you have once got u business
place, with the idea that on your .accuracy great Interests may hinge. There
are one or two other suggestions which
I want to make about this sort of a
place as stenographer and typewriter.
General Usefulness
The work of taking and writing out
letters will not use up all your time.
You will probably be asked to do things
about the office, to assist ln other ways
between times. A man would certainly
have even moro of such demands if he
wero In your place. Remember that.
And don't do what Is asked of you aa
If It were a favor, as If you were being
Imposed upon. Do lt always as a matter of course. The more you know about
the way that business Is run the more
likely you will be to keep your job and
have your wages increased. There ls no
Instance that I know of where any
woman in your place has ever got more
than $15, except as a reward for this
sort of Interest in the employer's business. There's a deep lesson ln that statement of fact. Read lt over again. It
will bear repeating.
Clergymen, lecturers, authors and
newspaper editors have use for stenog
raphers. The man who has prepared
the thought of a sermon finds a great
relief ln being able to dictate the verbal
crystallization of that thought to some
one else, and having it come back to
him in cold, legible typewritten form.
He will demand a lot of patience from
the stenographer. He will order a sentence stricken out; he will partially reconstruct another; he will change an
adjectiye every now and then, and,
worst of all, he is likely to make so
many changes when lie sees what he
has sulil, that the matter has to be all
rewritten. Never mind. That ls what
you are there for. He must use your
services In his own  way.
You will find the same annoyances In
working for an author or lecturer. In
all three phases of the occupation you
will also find your hours subject to the
whim or mood of the employer. There
will be less of this In what an editor
will ask of you. General Information Is
of great assistance here, and a knowledge of reference books, where you can
find what you never knew, or what has
slipped your memory, Is Invaluable. You
write the sound, but your copy must
contain only words of the English language, and names or mythological references often compel the oldest hand to
have recourse to the cyclopedia.
Law Stenography.
Another and even larger field ls law
stenography. This does not call for
quits as much genera! information as
the branches just considered, but lt Is
like business stenography   In   insisting
on accuracy, and for the 'same reason,
that errors are costly. Deeds, wills, papers in summons and complaint, and important contracts are copied in law offices. Thousands of dollars may depend
on correctness, even ln punctuation.
The strain ls great on any one who
realizes this, and one who doesn't ls
worthless. But arguments for the court,
or pleas for Jury, are often to be dictated, and tneir scope covers a wide
range of human Information, lt ls not
wise to interrupt the dictator. You
must depend on yourself, even where
the language used ls technical and you
feel that ycu are walking amid pitfalls.
The reward Is that you get good wages
sooner than almost anywhere else, nnd
that you can quickly make yourself
nearly Indispensable, for there are not
many good law stenographers in the
When Fitted.
Court stenography Is a different thing.
I know of no case where this is done
in a court of record by a woman. The
positions are public ones, their salaries
are fixed by statute, and they ere filled,

THE detecting of Imitations ln various goods is an art that would
stand any woman in good stead—
or a man, for that matter. In
fact, merely as u matter of general Information, it la ii valuable asset whenever one has not the integrity of some
established house or person to depend
upon  for Judgment.
Speaking flrst of the diamond, the expert's eye, without applying any tests,
will tell at once the genuineness of a
Btone. A real diamond Is opaque; you
cannot see through it at all. Whereas
the Imitation is largely transparent, or,
at the best, translucent. Moreover, the
real diamond Is an absolutely perfect
reflector; that Is, whatever the light may
be that lt Is In. lt reflects truthfully,
and that with perfect brilliancy. So
thai daylight Is the best ln which to
test the stone, for even ln that pure,
searching light, the diamond reflects the
white, clear rays. An imitation, under
such circumstances, has what the expert calls a "dead centre"; there is no
brilliancy nor lire; lt ls dead. It may be
remembered that Imitation stones are
always exhibited In a room br'lllantly
Illuminated with aillflclal light, to lend
all brilliancy possirle. In honest daylight the diamond can bear the scrutiny
of an eye; though, of course, It ls
specially brilliant when under a number
of light sources, such as the myriad
lights of a theatre or the dancing rays
cast from nbove by the leaves of trees.
One crude test of a diamond ls the
file. It makes no Impression whatever
upon the real stone. Many clever
"fakes" will demonstrate ostentatiously
upon an Imitation, seeking to prove by
tne file test that It is the real article.
They heat the lilt, thus taking Ihe tempering out of the steel, so thai lt cannot
affect the Imitation,
A perfectly cut diamond has fifty-
eight faces, or facets* (the planes), which
number Is the best for brilliancy. Also,
two-thirds of the stone's height should
be under tlie girdle (the circular edge)
or belt, and one-lhlrd above. Many
people experience an uncomfortable surprise when a stone breaks or chips. This
casts no reflection whatever upon its
genuineness. It Is only an unfortunate
circumstance.   The diamond has a grain,
or certain weak spot, which, with perhaps the slightest touch and at the
most unexpected moment, will part It or
chip lt, when, under ordinary circumstances, It could be pounded all day
with a steel hammer and come out unharmed.
The best test for a sapphire ls to hold
It up to the light, with the lower point
toward the eye. If lt Is an imitation, a
red circle appears around the girdle. In
a ruby the same test may be applied,
with the opposite result; a blue circle
appears. If It Is an imitation. In testing an emerald, the imitation presents a
brownish red circle. The file test also
may be used here. One means, which,
however, is not tellable in every case, is
to seek an Imperfection in an emerald.
Nearly all the real stones have them;
It is next to Impossible to obtain an absolutely perfect emerald. The French
imitations are specially good, for they
are careful to have the Imperfections.
So, should you find a perfect stone, lt is
either a cheap imitation or a gem of almost priceless value. Rather an amusing situation!
Perhaps the most Interesting Jewels
are the so-called limestones—the opal,
the lurquoiBe, for example, lt may be
lomembtred that the opal Is softer and
more brilliant In damp, warm weather.
This is due to the Umeltkc qualities of
Its elements; It absorbs moisture and Is
affected by heat, which conditions add
noticeably to Its brilliance. It ls soft
and brittle, and acts very like a plant;
when kept dry and cold. Its llf._ seems to
droop and wither, .and Its flre grows
dim; and yet it responds Instantly to
warmth and moisture, glowing with Indescribable beams. The turquoise acts
the same way, though ln its "live" moments, lt Is a rich, pure blue.
Clever Mexican Trick
An Interesting example of this trait of
the opal ls seen among the Mexicans.
On the border of the country the natives
In possession of stones cluster about the
points where travelers enter and besiege
them to buy the gems. They claim to
have smuggled Ihem, and so soil them
cheaply. However, they are not above
^ resorting to a sly trick to raise the
price  on   the soot.     One   has  button
holed a traveler, or, perhaps, Is entertaining a party with his soft, gllb-
tongued persuasions. He whisks a jewel
from his mouth, and. presumably to remove the moisture, vigorously rubs it on
his coat for a few seconds. There you
a;e—moisture ond heat (by the rubbing),
and before the Interested traveler is a
previews stone, aglow with beautiful flre
und soft, myriad-colored lights. If he Is
a sensible man, he buys and chuckles
about his bargain. However, a little
later on he is not a little puzzled at the
way that opal acts.
Metals and Shells
Coming now to precious metals, gold,
of course, < innot be Imitated, except In
platings and -lomposlllons of brass. The
unfailing test is the use of muriatic or
nitric acid. In Xhe first place, "virgin"
gold, as it is taken from tho earth, is
rated as "24 karat"—absolutely pure.
The ancte.it artists of India us.- about a
22-kai-at w Id. However, this is considered I / « Western world too soft for
piacil.. • /ryasea, and the virgin gold Is
alloyi'« 1 he percentage of the alloy
(copp' for red gold, sliver for yellow)
mak ,- 'the karat—18-karat, 14-karat, 10-
ka'.rand so on. United States money,
by file way, Is about 20-karat. This al-
I %/ gives firmness and strength to tho
gold without robbing lt of its beautiful
When acid ls applied to 24-karat gold
(virgin gold) it has ab&o.utely no etrect
upon it. So, according to the amount
of alloy will the acid create a disturbance. In ihe presence of much alloy the
acid makes a brown stain, and on down,
proportionately, in deepening shades to
red. When applied to brass, there Is a
green stain, with bubbles—a sort of effervescence. The only test for "gold-
filled" articles Is to cut them ln half, or
by weighing them. Golii-flllcd means
two sheets of gold, with a layer of composition between, usually of copper and
silver. This method is popular for
watohcases and pins.
To the Inexperienced, tortoise shell
may seem to baffle all efforts to "tell
which is which." But lt Is not so. Of
course, the expert can tell almost instantly; but the amateur, with care and
strict attention, can soon detect an Imi
tation. Appearance, touch nnd smell
are the clues. The practical observer
will notice as lie looks at the shell from
each side that the brown and yellow
markings go through sharply, with no
tapering. The mottled effect is copied
with chemicals applied to the horn,
while heated rollers and pressure send
pigments through celluloid, but in
neither vase does art equal in delieate
beauty the work of nature in producing
the shells. There Is a clean, pleasant
feeling Jo shell that is not found in the
imitations. The horn and bone combs
are likely to have a clammy feeling to
the touch or a suggestion ol grease.
This feature is scmetlmes noticeable to
the eye."
There is a popular method of using tho
smell test. Rub the shell vigorously un
a piece of cloth or the hand till warm;
If it Is imitation, it will smell ot camphor.   The heat brings out the odor.
"Tortoise shell does not yield io heat
below the boiling point. Hold a comb,
and lf the heat of your hand so affctts
the teeth thet you con bend them easily
to other shapes, you have celluloid or
some other materia). Shell Is almost as
elastic aB a Dair.ascan blade." Another
point to note is that the teeth of Imitation combs are always more or less
curved, while the real shell teeth are
straight, yet comfortable and firm in
ihc hair. The chisels In the machine
that cuts out the teeth are set at an
angle so that they make wedge-shaped
incisions, the sharp ends of the teeth in
one CO—ib coming from the roots of adjacent teeth. In another comb, thus
avoiding waste.
A word here about the care of real
shell combs minht be timely. There is
more or less electricity and oil in the
hair; so lHic combs should be wiped carefully at night after being removed from
the hair. Use a soft, dry rag, and the
combs will retain their inimitable clean,
polished appearance.
.It la a simple matter to tell real ivory.
The camphor test may be applied here,
too, but the facts that ivory has a
perceptible grain, ls a rich, pure cream
color, is heavier than any imitation,
".lake enough information to protect a
buyer In search of the real article.
Furs form another commodity that ls
widely Imitated. Summing the matter
up, they are either very excellently Imitated or very badly; ln the latter case
no novice needs any "tips." And the.
good imitations are at the mercy of
only the expert's eye; it is difficult to.
mention any special point. But it is the
in-between imitations that may be spoken of. Coney is, a fairly good Imitation
of ermine; but the hair, longer, larks,
the fine, silky qualities, and easily
"roughs." Black tips are sewed on to-
imitate the tails. Electric seal, the imitation of sealskin, has a longer, blacker,
coarser hair tban the real skin, thought
sometimes the real skin is dyed black.
The imitation mole skin is dyed muslt
rat. But lt has not the soft, silvery-
shades of the real skin, and ls less silky-
There are Imitations galore of everything; but, perhaps, these few suggestions in regard to the most valuable of
life's commodities will help when one-
goes shopping about the world-

I have heard of methods to Increase
one's height, but I am not at all familiar with them. In such a case, I can
only advise you to go to a specialist. I
give you below some exercises to reduce
hips and legs.
To Reduce the Hips.
Place hands on the,hips,  shoulders well
back.    The  leg  ls   nil. nl   with  knee  fixed.
Then, after a high,   quick side kick,  bring
i   the foot back again to the floor.     This ls
to be repeated  several  times.
To reduce the legs,  I  would suggest
that you walk as little as possible (taking   other    exercises,    however),    and
bathe your legs frequently with -CltsS-"-
alcohol or warm vinegar.    j.v^
Here ls the skin food you ask for:
Skin Food.
White wax, 1 ounce: spermaceti, 1 ounce;
lanolin, _ ounces: cocoanut oil. 2 ounces;
orange-flower water, 2 ounces: oil of sweet
almonds. 4 ounces: tincture of benzoin, 30
drops. Melt the first Ave ingredients together. Take off the flre and beat until
nearly cold, adding, little by little, tho benzoin and lastly orange-flower water.
Flabby Skin
I am 40 years of age; am I too old for
vaucalre treatment? Would you kindly advise me what to uee to reatore face and
neck to good condition, and how to use It?
I have been much atouter, but owing to
trouble, now removed, lost twenty-flve
pounds, although my general health Ib good.
My face and neck are very Habby, and the
skin wrinkles with the movements of the
head; my throat, too, is in a similar condition.
If you oeuld tell me of gome harmless
method to restore my skin to Ita former
firmness, I would be very grateful Indeed,
and would faithfully adhei-e to any advice
you might give. Mrs. E. s. 1..
I am sure the Vaucalre treatment
would hnve only benefit for you. You
need not be afraid to try it.
As to your skin and general appearance, try these general rules:
To Gain Flesh Generally.
Absolute freedom from care and anxiety.
At least ten hours' sleep out of every
twenty-four. In addition to thiB, naps during the day if possible. This sleep must
always be natural. Nothing is so bad for
the appearance and general health as
sleep Induced by anodynes or narcotics in
any form. The diet should be liberal and
should consist largely of food containing
starch and sugar; potatoes, fresh, sweet
butter, milk, cream, fruits cooked and
served with sugar, all vegetables containing starch and sugar, such as corn, sweet
potatoes beans, peas, foods of the macaroni and spaghetti kinds, fish and oysters,
ice cream, deaserts without pastry; plenty
of outdoor life and a moderate amount of
exercise. Bleep in a well-ventilated room.
I do not believe any one can gain flesh if
there Is an internal disease; certainly not if
there is ony tendency to dyspepsia or liver
trouble. Where the patient is plump in one
part of the body and falls in another a
gymnastic course is advised. There Is nothing better than bicycling, unless It may be a
regular gymnastic course. In order to pursue the latter properly the patient Ib advised to go to a first-class gymnasium, submit to an examination and take the exercises prescribed by the attendant physician.
The.se gymnasiums, at moderate prices, may
be found In a town of any size in the country. Where the development Ib meagre in
the upper part of the body, swimming Is
also an excellent exercise. Walking is always wholesome. The patient who wishes to
■gain flesh can never do so if she worries, is
harassed or permits her nerves to get the
better of   her.
Dashing very cold water on the face
and neck several times daily, and then
rubbing briskly, does much to make
the skin Arm. Massage your face and
neck with this skin food:
Cream of Sweet Oranges.
(A Skin Food.)
Two ounces sweet oil of almonds.
Two ounces orange-flower water.
Two drams white wax.
One dram oil of sweet orange.
Two drams spermaceti.
Half fill a saucepan with boiling water.
Stand a Jam jar in this. Shred the wax
and spermaceti into the jar. Let it dissolve. Heat almond oil and add to the wax.
Heat orange-flower water; add it half a .tea-
Bpoonful at a time, stirring the mixture
quickly. Lift the Jar out of the Baucepan.
Beat mixture with the whisk. Heat and
add oil of sweet orange. Whisk cream until
lt ls cold. Put ln pots and cover with
To Relieve a Red Nose
Tou had a recipe in the paper about six
months ago for something to whiten the
nose. I have been bothered with a red nose
for some time, otherwise I am In perfect
health. J. 8. 8.
A red nose ls usually caused by indigestion. You should be exceedingly
careful as to what you eat, and how
you eat it. FreBh, tender meats are
good; fresh fish, also, and an abun-
dunce of vegetables and fruit. Fried
foods, highly seasoned dishes and
sweets are all miBchlef matters. Avoid
them. Drink plenty of pure, cool—not
cold—water. Eight glasses per day is
the least amount required. Drink the
water between meals, not with them.
Take a full bath from head to heels
each twenty-four hours. Get plenty of
fresh air and exercise, and sleep in a
well-ventilated room.    ■
You might also apply local treatment
to your nose. Try massaging vigorously
along the leading nerve of the nose at
each side. Use the tip of the finger,
start at the bottom and rub up the nose
on each side, and then under the eyebrows. Following the nerve in this way
is sure to relieve congested circulation,
which Is often the secret of that unpleasant redness which comes to the
nose, If it is extremely red, massage
the temples and cheeks, also, using a
brisk, vigorous movement.
When treating a red nose, be careful
not to touch It with water. Instead,
bathe lt night and morning with cream.
To Reduce the Bust
Having heard of your good ndvice to others.  I  thourtu I  would aafc vou to pleas e
glve me a recipe of something that will reduce the bust which will be harmless.
A. M. 1_
Bathe the bust every day  with clear
alcohol or warm vinegar.    Applications
of   cold   water   also   help   to   make   lt
firm.    Use  the  following  pomade:
Pomade to Reduce the Bust.
Iodide of potassium, 3 grams; vast-line, 60
gramB;  lanolin, 50 grams; tincture of benzoin, 20 drone.   Make into a pomade and rub
all over the fat parts twice a day.
Unknown Formula
ELLA.—I know nothing of this formula you speak of, so cannot recommend lt to you. However, I can assure you of the efficacy and safety of
the remedy made from the formula so
frequently published in this department.
The Shape of Her Nose
I would like to know if there is any way
of changing a nug nose to a straight, or, at
least,  to any other kind lhat does not turn
up.    I am In my teens, and so think thnt
there is a chanco of changing the shape of
my  nose  while  It  Is still mil.    1  none y,,u
can give nie Bome encouragement, nt leuet.
Much can be done wilh tlie shape of
the nose by personal effort, particularly
ln   youth.     There   are   movements   and
manipulations by which the shnpe of the
nose  can  be  changed  gradually.    It  is
best,   however,   to  get the  advice  of  a
specialist   about   this    matter,     for    it
would not be  well  to adopt  treatment
that wa» not exactly right.
