COPYRIGHT.      1905,      BY      LOTHROP      PUBLISHING      COMPANY
FOR Trove It was a day of sowing. The strange old tinker
had filled his heart wltb a new
joy and a new desire. Next
morning he got a ride to Hillsborough,
fourteen miles, and came back, reading
aa he walked a small green book, Its
thin pages covered thick with execrably fine printing, its title "The Works
of Shakespeare." He read the book Industriously and with keen pleasure.
Allen complained shortly that Shakespeare and the filly had interfered with
the potatoes and the corn.
Tbe filly ceased to take food and
sickened for a time after the dam left
her. Trove lay in the .stall nights and
gave her milk sweetened to her liking.
She grew strong and playful and forgot her sorrow and began to follow him
like a dog on his errands up and down
(be farm. Trove went to school ln the
autumn—"select school,", it was called.
A two mile Journey it was by trail, but
a full three by the wagon road. He
learned only a poor lesson the flrst
day, for on coming in sight of the
schoolhouse lie heard a rush of feet behind him and saw his filly charging
down the trail. He had to go back
with her and lose the day, a thought
dreadful to him, for now hope was
high and school days few and precious.
At first he was angry; then he sat
among the ferns, covering his face and
sobbing with sore resentment. The
little filly stood over him and rubbed
her silky muzzle on his neck and kicked
up her heels In play as he pushed her
Next morning he put ber behind a
fence, but she went over It with tbe
ease of a wild deer and came bounding after him. Wben at last sbe was
shut ln the box stall he could hear her
calling, half a mile away, and lt made
Lis heart sore. Soon after a moose
treed him on tbe trail and held blm
there for quite half a day. Later he
bad to help thrash and was laid up
with tbe measles. Then came rain and
flooded flats tbat tumed him off the
trail. Tears after be used to say that
work and weather and sickness and
distance, and even the beasts of tbe
held and wood, resisted him in the way
of learning.
He went to school at Hillsborough
that winter. His time, which Allen
gave him in the summer, had yielded
eome $45. He hired a room at 35 cents
a week. Mary Allen bought him a
small stove a.'id sent to him in the
sleigh dishes, a kettle, chair, bed, pillow and quilt and a supply of candles.
She surveyed him proudly as he was
F'llng away that morning in December.
"Folks may call ye han'some," she
said. "They'd like to make fool of ye,
but you go on 'bout yer business an'
act as if ye didu't hear."
He had a figure awkward as yet, but
fast shaping to comeliness. Long, light
hair covered the tops of his cars and
fell to bis collar. His ruddy cheeks
were a bit paler that morning, the
curve ln bis lips a little drawn; his
blue eyes bad begun to fill and the
dimple in his chin to quiver slightly as
be kissed her who had been as a mother to blm. But he went away laughing.
He got a job In llie mill for every
Saturday at 75 cents a dar and soon
thereafter was able to ha»* a necktie
and a pair of fine boots and a barber
now and then to control the length of
his hair.
Trove burnt the candles freely and
was able, but never brilliant, In bis
work tbat year owing, os all who knew
him agreed, to great modesty and
small confidence. He was a kindly, big
hearted fellow and had wit and a
knowledge of animals and of woodcraft tbat made him excellent company. His schoolboy diary has been of
great service to all wltb a wish to understand him. On a faded leaf In tha
old book one may read as follows:
I have received letters in the handwriting of ulrlH, unsigned. They think they
are in love with me and say foolish
things. 1 know what they're up to. They
are the kind my mother spoke of—the kind
tuat set their traps for a fool, and when
he's caught they use him for a thing to
laugh at. They're not going to catch me.
Expenses for seven days havo been $1.14.
Clint McCormlck spent 60 cents to take
hia girl to a show, and I had to help him
through the week. I told him he ought
to love Caesar less and Rome more.
Then follows the odd entry without
which lt Is doubtful If tbe history of
Sidney Trove could ever have been
written. At least only a guess would
have been possible, where now Is certainty.   And here ls the entry:
Since leaving home the men of the dark
have been very troublesome. They xfialia
ma about every other night, and some-
X_i.es I wonder what they mean.
imif un oan tiling una developed lithe mystery of the boy. Even before
he could distinguish between reality
and its shadow tbat we see in dreams
he used often to start up witb a loud
cry of fear ln the night. When a small
boy, he used to explain lt briefly by
saying, "The men In the dark." Later
he used to say, "Tbe men outdoors ln
the dark." At ten years of age he
went off on a three days' journey with
the Aliens. They put up In a tavern
that had many rooms and stairways
and large windows. It was a while
after his return of an evening, before
candlelight  when *  £,r"^ ™_,rfa...i C_.
_uo- —au iiuiiiiitiu uie windows, that hi
first told the story, soon oft repeated
and familiar, of "tbe men in the dark"
—at least he went as far as he knew.
"I dream," he was wont to say ln
after life, "that I am listening in tlm
still night alone. I am always alone,
I hear a sound In the silence, of whal
I cannot be sure. I discover then, or
seem to, that I stand in a dark room
and tremble with great fear, of what
I do not know. I walk along swiftly
In bare feet, I am so fearful of making
a noise. I am feeling, feeling, my
hands out in the dark. Presently they
touch a wall and I follow It and then
I discover that I am going downstairs.
It Is a long journey. At last I am in
a room where I can see windows, and,
beyond, the dim light of the moon.
Now I seem to be wrapped In fearful
silence. Stealthily I go near the door.
Its upper half is glass, and beyond It
I can see the dark forms of men. One
is peering through, with face upon the
pane. I know the other is trying the
lock, but I hear no sound. I am ln a
silence like that of the grave. I try to
speuk. ' My lips move; but, try as I
may. no sound comes out of them. A
sharp terror Is pricking Into me, and I
flinch as if It were a knife blade. Well,
sir. that is a thing I canuot understand.
You know me. I am not a coward. If
I were really In a like scene fear would
be tbe least of my emotions, but in the
dream I tremble and am afraid. Slowly, silently, the door opens, the men of
the dark enter, wall aud windows begin to reel. I hear a quick, loud cry,
rending the silence and falling Into a
roar like that of flooding waters. Then
I wake and my dream is ended for that
Now, men have bad more thrilling
and remarkable ("-earns, but that of
the boy Trove was as a link in a chain,
lengthening with his life and ever binding him to some event far lieyond the
reach of his memory.
IT was Sunday, and a clear, frosty
morning ef midwinter. Trove had
risen early aud was walking out
on a long pike tba. divided the
village of Hillsborough and cut the
waste of snow, winding over hills and
dipping Into valleys, from Lake Champlain to Lake Ontario. Tbo air was
cold, but full of magic sunflre. All
things were aglow—the frosty roadway, the white fields, the hoary forest
and the mind of Hie beholder. Trove
halted, looking off at the far bills.
Then he heard a step behind him and,
as he turned, saw a tall man approaching nt a quick pace. Tbe latter had no
overcoat. A knit muffler covered his
throat, and a satchel hung from a
strap on his shoulder.
"What ho, boy!" said he, shivering.
" 'I'll follow thee a mouth, devise with
thee where thou shalt rest that thou
may'st hear of us an' we o' thee. What
o' thy people an' the filly?"
"All well," said Trove, wbo was delighted to see the clock tinker, of whom
he had thought often. "And what of
"Llko an old clock, sor—a weak
spring an' a bit slow. But, praise
God, I've yet a merry gong In me. An'
what think you, sor, I've traveled sixty
miles an' tinkered forty clocks In the
week gone."
"I think you yourself will need tinkering."
"Ah, but I .hank the good God here la
me home," the old man remarked
"I'm going to school here," said
Trove, "and hope I may see you often."
"Indeed, boy, we'll have many a
blessed hour," said the tinker. "Come
to me shop; we'll talk, meditate, explore, an' I'll see what o'clock it ls In
thy country."
They were now ln the village, and.
halfway down its main thoroughfare,
went up a street of gloom and narrowness between dingy workshops. At
one of them, shaky and gray with tho
stain of years, they baited. The two
lower windows in front wm-c dim with,
dirt and cobwebs. A board above
tbem was tbe rude sign of Sam Bas-
s/tt.^ca^penter.   On the side of the old
Boop was a -ignt ot sagging, nc_ety
stairs. At the height of a man's head
an old brass dial was nailed to the
gray boards. Roughly lettered In lampblack beneath lt were the words,
"Clocks Mended." They climbed the
shaky stairs to a landing, supported by
long braces, and whereon was a broad
door with latch and keyhole in Its
weathered timber.
"All bow at this door," said the old
tinker as he put his long Iron key In
the lock. "It's respect for their own
heads, not for mine," be continued, bis
hand on the eaves that overhung be-
'ow tbe level of tbe door.toD. ..

Industrial    Romanes    of    Man    Who
Launched the Great Eastern.
Sir Richard Tangye, inventor, author, engineer, millionaire and philanthropist, has just passed away ut
the age of seventy-three.
His life history is a romance of industry. The son of a small farmer kt
Redruth, Cornwall, he began experimenting with machinery as a boy in a
shed attached to the farm. A broken
arm at length prohibited hard manual
labor, and he became a pupil teacher
at £1 a week.
Reaching the salary of £80 a year
as a clerk in a Birmingham engineering firm, Sir Richard struck out 'or
himself, setting up as an "iron and
Bteel merchant" in a room, for which
he paid four shillings a week. His
brothers George and Joseph joined
him, and the Crimean war gave them
their first step to succeBs. Huge quantities of lint were needed, and the brothers invented a machine which would
turn it out faster than the existing1
methods. But that white elephant, the
Great Eastern, gave the firm a worldwide advertisement which ensured
"We launched the Great Eastern,
and she launched us," Sir Richard was
fond of saying. Th$ great vessel lay
complete on the stocks, from which
shs refused to budjro. Brunei, superintending the launch, was in despair,
when he remembered a certain hydraulic lifting jack which he had come
across in Cornwall. It was the Tangye
jack, and its application bv the firm
which had invented it resulted in the
Great Eastern being induced to enter
the water.
Subsequently one clever invention
followed another, until the firm enjoyed a world-wide reputation. There
is no country where their gas and uil
engines are not known to-day, and
branches of the central firm have long
existed in Sydney, Johannesburg, and
other places. The Birmingham works
alone employ 8,000 men, and the capital of the allied companies is £500,000.
Sir Richard has described his own
career in "One and All. He was a well-
known authority on the Cromwellian
epoch, valuable relics of which are
stored in his home at Coombe Bank.
His book, "The Two Protectors: Oliver and Richard Cromwell," has had
a large circulation. His literary work
included also a volume of "Reminiscences of Travel in America, Australia, and Egypt." His career was
crowned in 1894 when he received the
honor of knighthood from the late
Queen Victoria.
Tlie  Children's  Festival.
"And a little child shall lead them."
Tbe entire meaning of the festival of
Christmas Is contained in these words.
It Is tbe festival of the children because on this day God, the Son, the
Second Person of the Blessed Trinity,
took upou him human nature In the
shape of a helpless and beautiful child.
-Rev. John Talbott Smith, LL. D.,
President Catholic Summer School of
Who Snould Raise Horses.
Tn growing horses, as in growing
other kinds of live stock, the most
potent factor Is the man. Some men
should grow draft horses only. Some
should grow only trotters. Tha many
should raise the former, ns they are
9o much more easily grown. The few
should grow the latter. The men wliu
can grow good trotting horses, that
Is, trotting horses nf really superior
merit, are few and far between while
those who can also develop them are
fewer still. Some men should not
grow any kind of horses, as they wHl
not make a success of It. Tbey will
not make a success of It because thev
do not understand If or because they
do not like It, or for both resaons.
No one should enrage In grnwlnr
horses who does not taVa kindly to
'he work. And no one should engage
In growing any particular kind nf
horses or any class of the same unless
his tastes nin In thst line. However.
If one understands his business and
grows that class of horses ln which
he Is most Interested, there Is but
little doubt thst he win succeed In the
work.—Prof. Thos. Shaw, in American
Value of Good Roads to Property.
There are many striking examples
of the value of good roads. Wherever
roada have been permanently Improved It Is found that there has been a
very great Increase In the value of the
adjacent property, says the Good
RoadVs Magazine. Among examples of
this sort Is that of Jackson, Tenn.
From figures recently published It la
shown that since 1900 the city haa Increased 6,000 In population. The roads
were Imjwoved through Issuing bonds
to start with, and they, have advertised
the city so much that families are constantly coming In from adjoining
counties, with the result that land
values have Increased In some cases
from 20 to 100 per cent. Property In
the city haa also greatly increased ln

Scotland Yard Police Astonished By a
Woman's Application For Cabby's
License—Guarded Reply.
The suffragettes must take a back
, seat.   They are quite outclassed. They
I merely   make   riots   in   the   sacred
Houses of Parliament, engage policemen in single combat, go cheerfully to
prison, and demand votes.
But there is a lady 'in London—a
young and a pretty lady—who wants
to drive a hansom cab. She called at
the Daily Mirror offices nnd mentioned her ambition as though it were
quite an ordinary thing.
Miss Adela Maybury—that is the
young lady's name, and Bhe lives at
Petherton road, Highbury—has blue
eyes and bright, fair hair. And yet
"I don't see why I shouldn't be allowed to drive a hansom," she said.
A Vague Reply.
"But after an immense amount ol
trouble I have obtained from New
Scotland Yard only this vague letter."
And she produced the following illuminating missive:—
With reference to your letter, I am
directed by the Commissioner of Police of the metropolis to acquaint you
that Hackney drivers' licenses are
granted or refused 'in accordance with
the decision arrived at after inquiry as
to the applicant't fitness or unfitness,
I am, madam, your obedient servant,
Chief Clerk.
"It haa for a long time been my ambition to drive a cab," went on Miss
Maybury. "When I was a little girl
a woman used to drive a cab to Epsom races, until the authorities stopped her. She was not allowed a cab-
driver's license, but traded on the one
held by her husband, a regular cabman.
"Now lt occurred to me that if a
woman could procure a license to
drive a hansom in London she would
be trusted by lonely women. And
plenty of women, like myself, can
drive as well as anv man, and would
be most unlikely to be reckless.
"Well, I paid a visit to the offlce of
the CabdriverB' Union in Garrard
street, to enquire how I might obtain
a license. The secretary and his colleague seemed much amused at the
" 'I don't think your proposal would
be entertained for a moment,' said the
secretary. 'No woman has ever been
granted a cab license; but, of course,
vou can apply to Scotland Yard. The
license cost 5s. and you will have to
satisfy the authorities that you are a
capable driver, and that you know
London well.
Must Groom 'Oss.
" 'You will have to describe the
route you would take from a given address to another given address, naming every street you would traverse.
' 'And you will have to show you
understand the grooming of a horse
and the manipulation of the harness.
Then a form must be filled up, signed
by two reliable householders, to certify that, among other qualifications,
you are sober and have borne a respectable character for the last three
"The two last clauses amused me
very much. I went to New Scotland
Yard, and there I was informed by
police-inspectors that I must approach the head of the department by
a letter, which he would place before
the Commissioner. 8o I went home and
wrote the requisite letter, and after
waiting three weeks got the answer
from the chief clerk.
"I want to know what I am to do
next. Of course, I should   expect   a
food deal of chaffing from cabmen, but
am sure that quiet dignity and skillful driving would soon stop ridicule.
"One cabman asked me now I would
get up into the 'dicky.' Well, I could
wear special clothes, if necessary. I
have always been fond of tree-climbing, and I just love horses.
Meanwhile, till I get my license,
I am learning London. For two hours
every morn'ing I study the map and
Kelly's Directory. In the afternoon I
ride up and down the less-known suburbs on my bicycle. In the evening I
obat to a friendly cabman whenever I
(ret the chance. I mean to drive a cab
lf they will let me."

I oan see her on the hill,
In the splendor of the woodlands,
In the whisper of the rill.
For the shores of earth and heaven
Meet and mingle l.i the blue;
She can wander down the glory
To the places that she knew—
Where the happy lovers wandered
In the days when life was true.
So I think when days are sweetest
And the world Is wholly fair.
She may sometimes steal upon me
Through the dimness lit the air,
With the cross upon her bosom
And the amaranth ln her hair.
Once to meet her, ah, to meet her,
And to hold her gently fast,
Till I blessed her, till she blessed me-^
That were happiness at last;
That were bliss upon out meetings
In the autumn of the past.

Prince Albert Board of Trad* Initiate*
Big  Movement,
The Prince Albert Board of Trade
has Initiated a movement to urge upon
the Provincial and Federal Governments Immediate actlo/i to prepare the
Hudson Bay route for navigation.
They will seek the co-operation of every Board of Trade In the three pralrl*
provinces. The Prince Albert Advocate,
ln discussing the subject points out that
Prince Albert, being the mist northerly railroad point In Saskatchewan, and
a very old Hudson Bay Co. post, Is
probably more In touch with the north
than any other city, and Hudson Bay
captains who are frequently here always declare that the bay Is navigable
from midsummer until the end of December, and sometimes for a month
longer. The dangerous month, they
state, ls July, when floating Ice from
the Arctic regions comes swirling
through the straits, but when this has
disappeared there ls nothing to prevent
ocean steamers running from Fort
Churchill to Europe up to Christmas.
The Advocate adds that the feeling of
the meeting was that eastern members
of Parliament would never willingly
consent to the Hudson Bay route being
opened, and for this reason it was de-
elded to begin a vigorous campaign to
demand the rights of trie West. Tnls
ls, perhaps, hardly a fair view to
take. Doubtless some people would
seek to compel the West to send out
Ha products through Eastern Canada,
even though that should be the more
expensive way, but the great majority
of eastern people believe that to retard
the progress of the West by any such
aot as that would be to retard the progress of the whole of Canada. The reason that the Hudson Bay route ls not
more discussed in the east ls simply
because the people do not yet believe it
Is a practical project. When lt Is
proved to be practical, and the cheapest route to Europe it will be developed, and It is the duty and opportunity
of the people of the West to show lt
is practical

Editor      and      Proprietor  - of     The
Warman   Leader.
The subject of the above engraving
is one of the younger generation of
western newspaper men; one who
has by sheer personal effort raised
himself into his present position.
Coming to this country a few years
ago with no capital, and not even a
definite calling he has won friends
and supporters, and qualified himself
for the position he holds. The War-
man Loader has started out in a
' modest way in an ambitious town,
and will grow as the town develops.
Mr. Vokina was born in Ramshury,
Wiltshire, England, in 1880, of English parentage, and after becoming of
sufficient age, attended the Ramsbury
public schools until he was fifteen
years of age, when he took a situation in a law office.
He came to Canada, and applied
himself to farming till 1901, at the
end of that time buying himself a
farm in the Turtle Mountains, which
he worked for three years. His
newspaper instinct, or inclination,
now began to assert itself, and he
took a position in the Deloraine
Times office, getting a schooling in
the typographic and editorial art
with Mr. George Patterson. After a
short time here he went to the Was-
kada Expositor, where_he remained
until last June, when he removed to
Warman and established the Leader.
Mr. Vokins is a steady young man,
careful in his utterances, and well
balanced mentally, which augurs well
for his future in the sea of Western
Canadian journalism.

The work of erecting a monument
to Pope Leo XIII. inside the church

placed in position.
Last fall there was organized in

the Propogation of Moral Training
in the public schools. The organization of the American branch has just
been completed in Chicago and an
international congress is to be held

Once more Zam-Buk, the great herbal balm, has been proved vastly superior to ordinary remedies, and has
cured where other preparations had
signally failed. Three children in one
family have been healed by it. This
not only shows the power of Zam-
Buk, but goes to prove how beneficial its pure herbal ingredients are
to the delicate skin of children.
Mrs. J. C. Bates, of Burke's Falls,
reports the case referred to. She
says: "I take great pleasure in recommending Zam-Buk as a cure for
skin disease. My three children were
all broken out with sores on face,
hands and feet. Their condition was
pitiable, and although I tried various oijitments and salves, they did
not seem to be able to get at the root
of the evil, and the sores continued
to spread. One day I saw a report
in a local newspaper telling how
beneficial Zam-Buk was for skin diseases, ulcers, etc. I got a supply
of the balm and applied it to the
children's sores. Almost immediately
they got relief, and the sores began
to heal. Although the skin disease
had defied all the salves I had previously tried, in one week Zam-Buk
overcame the trouble, and today the
children have not a pimple or spot
or mark of disease on their skin. For
tins grand result 1 have Zam-Buk
to thank.    It is a splendid healer."
Zam-Buk is thus shown to be altogether different and superior to ordinary remedies. It is a healing balm
compounded from saps and essences
of the finest known medicinal herbs.
It has high antiseptic power, killing
disease germs wliich settle on sores
and eruptions, etc., and wliich set
up festering, blood poison and suppuration. It cures eczema, skin
rashes, cuts, burns, bruises, abscesses,
ulcers, acne, blackheads, ringworm,
blood poison, etc. It heals cracked
and chapped hands, cold sores, etc.
As an embrocation it is also widely
used, and gives speedy relief in cases
oi muscular rheumatism, sciatica, etc.
Rubbed on the chest in cases of
colds, it relieves the tightness and
aching. All druggists sell at 50c. a
box, or may be obtained post free
from the Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, upon
receipt of price. Six boxes for $2.50.

Broader shonlders characterize the
first of the spring shirt-waists. The
smartest designs for a linen shirt-waist
is made with three deep plaits on each
shoulder, back.and front. At the back
the plaits taper toward the waist. The
pattprp provides for a high band turn
down collar.,,but the waist is nlso finish
ed with a neckband, so that it may be
worn with a stiff linen colli- if prefer,
red. The regular shh't-waist sleey.o is
used, finished with a straight cuff. The
fastening of the waist is in the front
tlirough the center box plait. .The
stitched plaits and the broad shoulder
lino give nhis shirt-waist an air of
newness and smartness,. Though this
spring the lingerie waist will be more
in vogue than ever, yet the taylos-made
linen waist will also ,be much in
demand. <>
The indications muitiply that the
spring and summer, will be au all white
seaBOii. Waists will rnn generally to
sheer goods and lingerie effects. Dot
ted Swiss and mulls and lawns will all
be popular. The sleeves wonld appear
to be getting shorter instead of longer.
The' "jumper" has had an impressive
popularity among buyers in New York.
In taffeta silk or lace it may be worn
with any waist, with or without the
gnimpe. The (luted bosom stylo is one
that may possibly repeat the: success of
'the Peter Pan model of last year. One
style of lingerie waisvis finished with
neckband to be worn , with stiffly
starched linen collar. In addition to
linen collars tjnd neckwear to be worn
with them, including lawn frontpieceB,
jabots and Windsors, theie are other
good sellers, such as coat sits, and lace
yokes promise to be better than ever.
There is not much variation in the
cut of skirts, which will be pleated almost tbe same as last season's. The
lighter shades will hold for spring, but
there will probabijr be a tendency to
change to darker materials later. Pull
braids are used extensively for trimming, '_
In ladies' dress goods broadcloths
continue in excellent request, and
voiles are freely taken in blacks, creams,
bines, browhs, tans and "greys. Strl_.es
are expected to meet with great succosb,
and there is increased interest in fancy
suitings. .Novelty pongee silks have
taken well.
As nsulU, there are a number of
novelties ju ladies'small goods, among
them ladies' whita duck Vyashkble belts,
profusely embroidered. In trimmings,
naiTow silk braids in ull the light
shades promise to be very popular, and
with them are shown crocheted silk.
Separate lace Mouses still  hold their
vij, and those that are; embroidered
lira the handsomest. These blouses arc
being made, for tho most part, with
short sleeves.
That stock collars will be au Important item there seems to be no doubt,
for they are Bbo'wn iu practically every

Babies' long wrappers of white flannel, with a piplc rosebud pattern, jiuk

for the luontirgh of auy housoliold,.%

The liver rules the bndy.' Bileans
rule the liver. "A sluggish liver in
my case led to constipation and indigestion," says Mrs. Frances Greene,
of Earl St., Kingston, Out. "I felt
dull and sleepy, had no energy whatever for work, and every now and
again I had an attack of biliousness.
The food I ate seemed to lie heavy
on my stomach and did me no good.
I had wind and cramps in tlie stomach and bowels from the food decomposing. The constipation was so bad
that my bowels had to he forced at each
passage. All kinds of medicines I
tried, but nothing did me any lasting
good until I got Bileans. 1 have never found anything to equal them for
constipation and liver and stomach
troubles. They soon begnn to do nie
good and in the end cured nie. Since
using them I feel like a different
woman. I am bright an buoyant in
spirits, not dull and sleepy as I used
to be. I have got my energy and
activity back, and, in fact, all my ailments have yielded to Bileans."
Bileans are a purely herbal remedy,
and operate gently on liver and stomach, stimulating those organs to carry
out their functions in nature's normal
way. Headache, constipation, biliousness, piles, pains in the chest and
back, wind pains and dizziness—all
these symptom5! arise really from derangements of liver and stomach, so
that by correcting the root cause of
these troubles, Bileans speedily end
them all. This is surely better than
taking powders for headache, hot
drinks for wind pain, and dealing with
each symptom piecemeal ? All druggists sell Bileans at 50e per box, or
obtainable from the Bilean Co., To-
conto, upon receipt of price. Six
■boxes for $2.50. Write for free sample, whicll will be mailed you on receipt of a one-cent stamp.

The words "scot free" are a survival

treasure. In modern English, however,
it occurs In only two expressions, the
legal phrase "to pay scot and lot" and

And Good Health Can Only Return When The Blood
Filters, the Liver and Kidneys, Are Set Right By
Tired, languid feelings aro the result of the accumulation of waste
products in the system. On the failure of the liver and kidneys to remove these impurities the blood becomes filled with poisonous substances which instead of aiding the
functions tend to arrest them and
g've rise to pains in the limbs, back-
nches, headaches and tired, worn-
out feelings.
There remains to be discovered a
.more prompt and effective means of
enlivening and invigorating the action of the liver and kidneys;''than
Dr. ChaBe's Kidney-Liver Pill's. In
fact this medicine is unique in its
combined influence on the liver- and
kidneys and to this double action is'
attributed its extraordinary success
in the cure of complicated diseases
of these filtering organs. '   >
Biliousness, headaches, indigestion,
-idney disease and constipation are
promptly and thoroughly eured by Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and the
whole system is cleansed of the foul
impurities which result in disease
and suffering.
Miss Julie Langlois, Manor, Sask.,
writes: "For a long time I suffered
from liver complaint and biliousness
•and could find nothing to help me
until I used    Dr.  Chase's    Kidney-
liver Pills. I have recommended
these pills to many of my friends
and they have all been well satisfied
with the results. You can use this
letter for the benefit of women who
are suffering aa  1 did."
Mr. John Guheen, who is in the
fish business in Port Hope, Out.,
states: "In my business I do a great
deal of driving over bad roads, and
the constant jar of the rig, along
with exposure to all sorts of weather,
brought on kidney disease. I was in
miserable health, and suffered a great
deal with sharp pains in my back.
I heard of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills, and decided to try them. Before I had used all of the first box
I felt better, and three boxes have
entirely cured me. I am very glad
of an opportunity to recommend Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, for I have
proven their wonderful control over
kidney disease."
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Tills succeed where ordinary kidney medicines fail, because o^,'their direct and
combined action on', the liver and
kidneys. This has been proven in
thousands of cases of serious and
complicated diseases of the kidneys.

lf you ere making a rklrt to wear over

OH, FOR the days when skirts were

gathered around into a bunchl-
lness, hideous enough, It Ib true, but at
least the sort of thing over which a
woman could work in as tranquil a
frame of mind as over monotonous

feminine world doesn't stand up and
boldly defy Dame Fashion, and that Is
because the skirts of the last year tand
tli'.so lu'nmlsed lor the year to comu)
have a trick of being becoming tbat ls
as lrresiBtlblo as they make 'em.
Even with a good pattern, a circular
skirt requires coaxing to make It Just
so over the hips. But the most trouble-
some part about It Is the wny the hem
will sag and sag, be you experienced
tailor or veriest novice In the art of
handling needle and shears.
One clever dressmaker, whose skirts
seem to sag less than anybody else'B In
town, has revealed tbe secret of her success: Bhe hangs tha skirt on a form end
lets It hang until "It Iiub stretched Itself
out," us she graphically puts It. Then,
and only thon, she puts the hem In (It
has only been basted before), and finishes lt oft, fairly secure In her work.
That Idea Ib well worth following—
anything that prevents endlessly taking up the Hkli.-H Is to be hailed with
grateful enthusiasm.
lf your hips are falrl. even, try doing your flrst fitting of a skirt wrong
side out—It's a lot, easier to mark
where the seams shou'd be taken In.
Then baste them in and turn lt right
THt woman wbo starts her life-
work witb tha. notion that she
must receive certain considerations and accept certain limitations
because of her sex, ls pretty heavily handicapped in (be race. Not tbat
she is to set aside her womanliness—it
ls never more necessary than ln the
work-a-day world. She must merely
realize that lt Isn't a question of Woman's Rights or Woman's Wrongs lhat
she has to consider; but her own ability to perform the task thai lies before.
Never In the worlds history have
brains, pare and simple, counted for
more than at the present. Never has
the question uf sex counted less. There
Ib no more reason for a woman tailing
simply because she Is a woman than
there la for insisting a man is dumb,
Just because you muy never have happened to hear him speak.
A young woman sculptor, possessed
neither of wealth, pull nor exceptional
personal charm, exhibited a tne of exquisite workmanship at the St. Louis
Fair, side by side with the productions
of men. She received an Important
medal, and won a reputailon ln the ur-
tlstlc world, not because she waB a
woman, and not in spite of her being a woman, but because her work wa.-
good.     Brains counted—not  sex
The editor of a well-known magazine,
always on the a'.ert for new talent,
drew haphazard a manuscript from the
pile on bla desk, and began to read it,
without so much as glancing at tbe at
tached name. Before he waa half
through the neatly typed pages he had,
as he afterward saitl. "Wept and laughed and rejoiced." The nam.-, when he
came to lt. was totally unfamiliar. It
belonged to a young woman, a Smith
College graduate, a girl who bad never
been unduly liked or disliked by her
classmates; yet barely a year'from tho
time of the reading ot that llrst story it
had found an enviable place fn latter-
day literature. This didn't happen because the writer was a win..an, neither
did It fall to happen because she was
one.   Again brains counteu—not sex.
The question of the equably of men
and women has been worn threadbare,
and has caused an infinity of heartburning that is unnecessary, because
there ls no groundwork upon which to
raise the structure of an argument. Wa
do not say that ihe axe is superior to.
the razor, nor vice versa. Yet the finely tempered steel of one would bev
blunted and marred if it att mpted the.
work of the other, and the weight ant-
force of the axe would be clumsy and
useless if aDplled to the delicate task
of the razor. Thus It ls with men and
women—not a question of superiority of
intellect but a difference In organization and temperament.
The clever woman who makes a failure of her life does not fail because she
la a woman, but because sl a neglects
to make the moat of her own God-
given attributes; because she refuses to

One stunning cover of natural-colored linen was apparently embroidered, solid In red, the big, effective design looking as though it represented
lots and lots of work. lt didn't,
though, for outlining was the only
stitch used, row after row of it filling

doing Ita share to minimize the work
of that filling by working up heavily.
To Make Eyelets
THERE'S a new way of making
those troublesome eyelets, discovered by a girl who ls locally fa-
f mous for inventing labor-saving ideas.
It consists ln running the eyelet
around and then cutting it from end to
end, and buttonholing it, making the
stitches as deep as those upon the us-
. ual buttonhole, but reversing the stitch
• so that the edge stitches back upon the
material instead of around the open
edge of the eyelet.
lt Is about one-fifth as hard to do as
the usual way; and the difference in
length of time is even more marked.

"We're looking about for a monkey,
A monkey, a monkey,
We're looking about for a monkey,
We've found one here."
At the word "here" the raised arms
must come down and Inclose the head
of the boy or girl who chances at that
moment to be passing underneath their
Then all s*ng together:
"We found one here, we found one here;
We're looking nbout for a monkey,
And found one here."
"Monkey" must take the place of one
of the children on the stools (while that
child Joins the marching line), and must
call out the name of a new animal—Buy,
All must remember tbnt "rhinoceros"
Is now the word Instead of "monkey.''
and, reBumlng their march, they now
"We're looking about for a rhlnoceroi,
A rhlnocetofl, a rhinoceros," etc.
At the word "lure," whatever child
happens to bo mr,/chlng underneath the
raised arms Is the "rhinoceros," of
course, and ls caught. He takes his
place on one of the stools and calls out
the next animal word.
8o the game should go, until each
child has had his turn getting caught.
This game will keep all the children
stirring, and will cause them to get over
any diffidence Ihey may have -elt on
their arrival.
Linen Workbags
A'-'EW years ago a workbag made
of any other material than silk
would have been looked at half
But the last couple of years linen ones
have crept Into favor, until now some
of the prettiest of them all arc of ']nen,
left plain or embroidered ln any of tne
popular styles. One girl, who ls a ways
doing fancy work, and who always
manages to havo pick-up work ready,
has four or five bags, made to match
ner morning shirtwaist Buits.
Some of the bags, made of washable
stuffs, are mado to come apart, so that
they may be kept always exqulBltely
clean and fresh.
An occasional bag is made without the
'beading which usually finishes off the
ribbon-run casing.
A Crocheted Kimono
THE latest version of the klmo.,o is
one that ls crocheted In a pattern
that manes a tightly crocheted
yoke, with the body of the kimono prettily fulled .on In shell stitch.
As with kimonos of silk or cotton or
wool, bands of a contrasting color flnlsk
fronts and cuffs.
Of course, only the short kimonos are
crocheted; but they are very prett)
made of white, with the bands of a pala
shade of pink nr blue or lavender.
The weight and warmth of the kimono
can be controlled by the kind of wool
used In Its making, although, as with
everything that ls crocheted, there ls
one weight more popular than any

AVERY good housekeeper has hei'
special Bet of recipes which shu
constantly uses, and the tidy
souls of many are tried by the soiled
condition of the cover of any book
that is kept about the kitchen. Flour
will stick, butter will smear, sugar
has an annoying habit of making Itself felt; and ln a little while she Is
constrained to copy her treasures into
a fresh blank book, or else to recover
the  old  one.
Now, If ln the beginning she would
make a cover for her book of kitchen
recipes out of white oilcloth, sho
would obviate much of her woe. Oilcloth ls pliable and It is durable;
moreover, It can be wipe! off with a
damp cloth after each using, and Is
thus kept In a presentable condition
for a very long Ume.
Poor Little James.
Little James had been telling a visitor
that his father hod got a new set of
false teeth. "Indeed," said the visitor.
"And what will he do with the old set?"
"Oh, I s'pose," replied llttle James,
"they'll cut 'em down and make me
wear 'em."

Mother-How Is it, my boy, that you

Little Johnny-Well, the teacher has

wouldn't enjoy It." The word*
have a familiar sound. We've sal-

lt isn't easy to go places when you
aren't properly gowned. It Isn't comfortable to mingle with other women
when your heart ls sore for the lack,
of all the dainty feminine frills witht
which they are possessed, and yet—
It Isn't good to stay away.
I know one girl who has hosts of
friends, aVid who keeps up with them,
too, who owns JUDt one street gown
in a season, which must do duty for
every sort of occasion She has a
set of skilful fingers and an Ingenious little brain, and she has rejoiced
loudly in the recent fashion of while
blouses. She has numbers of them,
at a very llttle cost, for she la fast
becoming adept in hunting for bargains In materlala. Sl— has developed a talent for laundering them that
might put a French professional tr>

Going out among people when you

to get Into the habit of not going,,

l7he GAME
WHEN we were Children we use-
to find great fun In playing
We made the cards for the game ourselves, by cutting them from paste-f ■
board or cardboard.
The cards were 2V4 inches by 3*_
Inches, and were colored on one side
in red and blue. We colored them witly
our water colors.
There were thirty-two cards In all.
sixteen ln red and sixteen in blue. On
one side of each, the side that was not
colored, we placed a large figure, corresponding In color to that used on tho
back of the card.
As there were sixteen cards, the figures were 1, 2, 3 up to 16. The red cards
then bore figures corresponding exactly
to the blue ones; that is, there was an
8 among the red cards, and an 8 among
the blue cards.
This was the game: One person took
nil of the blue cards, and another took
all of the red. The cards were then shuffled, care being taken not to let any
one see what card came out on top.
Now, with the hand carefully concealing the number of the card to be laid,
at exactly the same Instant each player
places a card on the table, with the
number up.
If one Bhould lay a 5 and the other a.
4, or any numbers that do not correspond, each player again deposits a
But If two corresponding cards are
laid, two "e, for Instance, the player
who notices this flrBt must cry out
"snap!" and he who flrst cries "snap"
takes all of the cards that have oven
The game continues until all cards are
on the table, the winner being the one
who haa the greatest number of cards,
at the end of the game.
Thla game Is very Interesting, aB lt Is.,
necessary for both players to be very
alert. Each Is anxious, of course, to be
the flrst to see and to call out "snap" ]
when two corresponalng curds have |
been laid. j

Mt. Pleasant Conservatives.
The loyal and victorious Conservatives of Mt,'Pleasant entertained their
friends ou Wednesday evening in the
Oddfellows'^'Hall, in truly hospitable
style. The large hall was _iied with a
cheerful throng who enjoyed themselves
nntil a late hour. A pleasing program
w&s presented by tbe following ladies
anA gentlemen: Vocal soliis by Mrs.
Terryberry and Mr. Wm. Moore; recitation by Mrs. v|. A. Allen and F. Condon,, and selections by the Orchestra.
Our I009I Orchestra received many compliments from visifofr.fironi, down-town.
Whist was engaged ih unfil 11 o'clock
when an excellent supper wai served in
the dining-'all. The tables were ladeu
with tempting good things and had
been tastefully laid by the committee
of'ladies, potted palms and ivy formed
attractive decorations.
Mr. fi. Birmingham, President of the
Ward V, Conservative Club, acted as
chairman during the eveniug, and after
supper called ou. Mr. A. H. £. Mac-,
gowan' M. P. P., for iv' speech. Mr.
Macgowah,' who is popular on Mt.Pleas
ant, responded in "his' iiBiial happy style,
stating he would not make a speech but
was pleased to compliment Mt. Pleasant
und Dr. McGuire M. P. P., on the
splendid entertainment tendered the
large number of guests. Dr. McGuire
when called upon, declared had he not
been assured there was to be. no speech-,
making before coming he would not
have appeared, however, he Said sonic
very nice things about uot being sur
prised at the great things Mt. Pleasunt
people can do, and proposed ' a vote Of
thanks to tlie committee of ladies who
hud so capably assisted in getting up
tlio excellent entertain—.out. Mr. Birmingham called upou Mr. O. N. Wood
worth, President of tho Vancouver
Conservative Club, to say a few words.
Mr. Woodwbrth's remarks w'ere certainly slightly {-?) tinged with that de-'
lighti'ul quality called "Blarney," und
mude a very favorable impression, in
closing Mr. Woodworth seconded Dr.
McGuire's vote of thanks to the ladies;
and yet Mr. Birmingham had oue oilier
ho wished to hear ' from, Mr. Lucas,
President of the Young Conservative
Club, who iu a few words expressed
appreciation of thb evenings entertain
meut aud "third-ed" the vole of thauks
to the ladies, when, "They're daisies,
they're daisies," "He's a bnby" were
sung to a popular air.
After supper dancing wus enjoyed
