They entered a loft open to'the" peak
and shingles, with a window in each
end. Clocks, dials, pendulums and tiny
cogwheels of wood and brass were on
a long bench by the street window.
Thereon also were a vise and tools.
The room was cleanly, with a crude
homellkeness about It. Cbromos and
illustrated papers had been pasted on
tbe rough board walls.
"On me life, lt ls cold," said the tinker, opening a small stove and beginning to whittle shavings. " 'Cold as a
dead man's nose.' Be seated an' try-
try to be happy."
There were an old rocker and two
small chairs ln the room.
"I do not feel the cold," said Trove,
taking one of tbem.
"Belike, good youth, thou hast the
rose of summer in thy cheeks," said
the old mnn.
"And no need of an overcoat," the
boy answered, removing the one he
wore and passing it to the tinker. "I
wish you to keep it, sir."
"Wherefore, boy? 'Twould best
serve me on thy back."
"Please take It," said Trove. "I can-
nut bear to tblnk of you shivering in
the cold. Take lt, and make me happy."
"Well, lf it keep me warm an' thee
unppy lt will be a wonderful coat,"
suid tbe old man, wiping his gray
Then be rose and filled the stove with
wood ond sat down, peering at Trove
between the upper rim of his spectacles and the feathery arches of slivered hair upon his brows.
"Thy coat bath warmed me heart already—thanks to the good God!" said
he fervently.  "Why so kind?"
"If I am kind, it Is because I must
be," said tbe boy. "Who were my father and mother I never knew. If I
meet a man wbo ls ln need I say to
myself, 'He may be my father or my
brother; I must be good to blm,' and lf
it is a woman I cannot help thinking
tbat maybe she Is my mother or my
sister. So I should bave to be kind to
ull the people In the world if I were to
meet them."
"Noble suspicion, by the faith o' me
fathers!" snld the old man, thoughtfully rubbing his long nose. "An' bave
ye thought further lu the matter?
Huve ye seen whither lt goes?"
"I fear not."
"Well, sor, under the ancient law, ye
reap us ye have sown, but more abundantly. I guve me coat to one tbat needed It more, au' by the goodness o' God
1 have reaped another un' two friends.
Hold to tby course, boy. Thou sbult
have friends au' know their value. An'
then thou sbult suy, 'I'll be kind to this
man becnuse ho may be a friend/ an'
love fcbull Increase In thee an' around
thee an' bring happiness."
Thero wns a moment of silence, broken by the sound of a church bell.
"To tliy prayers," snld the clock
linker, rising, "an' I'll to mine. Dine
with me ut 5, good youth, an' all me
retlnoo— niaiils, warders, grooms, attendants— shall be at thy service."
"I'll be glad to come," suid the boy,
smiling at his odd host.
"An' Bee thou bust hunger."
"Good morning, Mr."— The boy hesitated.
"Barrel—Roderick Darrel," snld the
old man. "That's me inline, sor, an'

A wind came shrieking over the hills,
and long before evening the llttle town
lay dusky In a send of snow mist. The
old stulrs wero quivering in the storm
as Trove climbed tbem.
"Welcome, good youth," said the
clock tinker, shaking the boy's hand ns
lie came In. "Ho, there, me servitors!
Let the feast be spread!" he culled in
a loud voice, stepping quickly to the
stove that held nn upper deck of wood,
whereon wero dishes. "Right Ili.nd;

tatoes, an' Quick Foot, give us thy help
He suited his action to tlie words,
placing a platter of ham nnd cgpi In
tbe center of a small table and surrounding It with hot roust potatoes, a
pot of tea, new biscuit and a plate of
"Ho, Wit and Happiness, attend upon
us here!" suid he, making ready to sit
Then, as If he had forgotten something, he hurried to tho door und opened It.

"And who was he?"
"Youth; lovely, beautiful Youth! But

"Please take it," said Trove.
bim beck — foolish, Inconstant Youth,
dreaming dreams an'   seeing visions.
God love ye, boy! What Is thy dream?"
This rallying style of speech, in
which the clock tinker Indulged so freely, afforded his^ young friend no llttle
amusement His tongue had long
obeyed the lilt of classic diction; his
thought came, easy ln Elizabethan
phrase. The slight Celtic brogue served
to enhance the piquancy of his talk.
Moreover, be was really a man of wit
and Imagination.
"Once," said the boy, after a little
hesitation, "I thougbt I should try to
be a statesman, but now I am sure I
would rather write books."
"An' what kind o' books, pray?"
"An' thy merchandise be truth, Capital!" exclaimed the tinker. "Hast thou
an ear for tales?"
"I'm very fond of them."
"Marry, I'll tell thee a true tale, not
for thy ear only, but for thy soul, an'
pvme day, boy. 'twill give thee occupation, for tby wits."
"I'd love to bear It," said the boy.
The nendulums were ever swinging,
like the legs of a procession trooping
through the loft, some with quick
steps, some with slow. Now came a
sound as of drun.s beating.   It was for
| the hour of 8, and when lt stopped the
tinker began.
I    "Once upon a time," said he as they
l rose from tbe table and the old man
went for his pipe — " 'twas long ago,
an' I bad then the rose o' youth upon
me—a man was tempted o' the devil
an' stole mouey—a large sum—an'
made off with it. These hands o' mine
used to serve him those days, an' I remember he was a man comely an'
well set up, an', I think, he had honor
an' a good heart in him."
The old inun paused.
"I should not think it possible," said
Trove, who was at the age of certainty
ln his opinions and had long been
trained to the uncompromising thougbt
of tbe Puritan. "A man who steals
can have no honor In him."
"Ho, Charity!" said the clock tinker,
turning as lf to uddrcss oue behind
blm. "Sweet Charity, attend upon this
boy. Mayhap, sir," he continued meekly, "God bath blessed me with little
knowledge o' what Is possible, but I
speak of ii time belore guilt had sored
h'tin. He was officer of a great bank-
let us say In Boston. Some thougbt
hlni rich, but he lived high an' princely,
an' I take it, sor, his Income was no
greater than his needs. It was a proud
race be belonged to—grand people they
were, all o' them, with houses on'
lunds an' many servants. His wife
wns dead, sor, an' he'd one child—a
littlo hid o' two years an' beautiful.
Oue day the boy wont out with his
nurse, un' where farther nobody knew.
He never came buck. Up an' down,
over on' ncross, tbey looked for him
night nn' duy, but were no wiser. A
month went by an' uot u sight or sign
o' him, an' their hope fulled. One day
the father he got a note—I remember
reading It In tho papers, sor—an' it was
j a call for ransom money—$100,000."
"Kidnaped!" Trove exclaimed, with
! much Interest.   »
i  "He was, sorg-Jhe clock tinker re-
I aumed.   "Thai 'ratlfer he was up to his
, neck In trouble the _».oi Itf was unable
to raise the money, fie had '.barreled
with an older brother, whose help
would have been sufficient. Well, God
aave us all, 'twas the old story o' pride
an' bitterness! He sought no help o'
him. A year an' a half passes an' a
gusty night o' midwinter the bank
burns. Books, papers, everything Is
destroyed. Now the poor man has lost
his occupation. A week more an' his
good name is gone. A month an' he's
homeless. A whisper goes down the
long path o' gossip. Was he a thief an'
had he burned the records o' his crime?
The scene changes, an' let me count the
•wlft, relentless years."
The old man paused a moment, looking up thoughtfully.
"Well, say ten or mayhap a dozen
passed, or more or less It matter* little. Boy an' man, where were they?
Oh, the sad world, sor! To all that
knew them they were as people burled
ln their graves. Think o' this drowning in the flood o' years—the stately
ships sunk an' rotting in oblivion.
Some word of It, sor, may well go Into
thy book."
Tbe tinker paused a moment, lighting his pipe, and after a puff or two
went on with the tale.
"It ia a winter day In a great city.
There are buildings an' crowds an'
busy streets an' sleet In the bitter
wind. I am there, an' me path Is one
o' many crossing each other like—well,
sor, like lines on a slate, If thou wert
to make 10,000 o' them an' both
eyes shut. I am walking slowly, an'
lo, there is tbe banker! I meet him
face to face—an HI clad, haggard, cold,
forgotten creature.   I speak to him.
" 'The blessed Lord have mercy on
thee,' I said.
"'For meeting thee?' said the poor
man.   'What ls thy name?'
•"Roderick Darrel.'
"'An' I,' said he sadly, 'am one o'
tbe lost in hell.   Art thou the devil?'
"'Nay, this hand o' mine hath opened thy door an' blacked thy boots for
thee often,' said I. 'Dost thou not remember?'
" 'Dimly. It was a long time ago,'
he answered.
"We said more, sor, but that Is no
part o' the story. Very well! I went
With him to his lodgiugs-a little cold

errands until his strength was low an'
the weight of his hand a burden. What
hope for him? What way to earn a

Particularly Appropriate For a Room
Facing; tbe Eaat.
It Is rather remarkable that brown
wall paper has not more admirers. For
a room facing east It Is particularly
warm and cozy. A woman who Is
much at her desk found the pale yellow figured wall paper extremely trying to her eyes when lifting them from
her writing for a few minutes' rest.
The room had an eastern exposure, nnd
the yellow walls were glaring In the
morning wheu the sun shone ln nnd
cold In the afternoon when tbe sunlight had vanished.
After much thought,she selected for
the upper walls n plain light chocolate
felt. Below the picture rail, which
was a little more than halfway up, she
put a dado of a brown background
with fleur-de-lis and pin lines of a
darker brown. The ceiling was made
of a very light shade, almost a fawn.
In order to give sullioient light to the
somewhat somber effect. The result
was successful. Long curtains of green
denim hung straight at the long windows which reached almost to the floor,
with deep window seats, ind the window shades were light.
The brown walls were soothing to
the eyes and gave an effective background to the few engravings and photographs needed to brenk tbe monotony
of the walls, and the woodwo.'k was
painted white. Fur from being somber, this den wns the coziest, most
cheerful spot In the house on duys
when bleak northeasters beat against
the windows. The white doors and
casements gave so light a touch that
the mahogany furniture, witb which
the room was furuished, did not give
too heavy an effect. — Philadelphia

The Brood Sow.
Wheat bran fed to tlie brood sow
aids materially in securing a good development of bone and muscle in the
offspring. The older the pig the more
it costs to sustain it without growth,
because there is more to sustain. So
Jar as is possible the brood sows
should never be kept in close confinement. They should have abundant exercise and a good variety and quantity
of iood.
Convenient Farm  Bench   That   Combines Handiness and Will Save
Many Steps.
The work bench illustrated herewith
save many steps, as it combines   at
once a  handy  bench  for  fanners'  or j
mechanics' use and a tool chest. As j
will be seen from the illustration, the i
top, a a, is constructed of 2-inch lum- j
ber and is 2x10 feet. The front board,
b is of Ixl2-incll lumber in two pieces;
c is a door, with hinges   at   bottom
and held in place when shut by a but- !
ton or catch.    When this door is let
down a compartment 2 feet deep, 2
feet high and 3 feet long is revealed.
A shelf divides it into equal parts.
These shelves will be found useful
for many tools such as the sledge,
large planes, etc, aa well as useful
pieces of iron, bolts or chainB.   The

staples, etc., being divided into a number of boxes by thin partitions to accommodate the different sizes of nails
or bolts.
The user will soon arrange his tools
in these shelves and drawers to best
suit his own convenience.
The legs are made of 2x6-inch lumber, are six in number, and well
braced, making a work bench of the
most substantial form. The central
pair of legs could be dispensed with,
but as they add strength and rigidity
they are well worth the extra expense
and labor.
Few fanners realize the great advantage of a good work bench, and
one like that described above is one
of the best combinations which can
be made. The tools are so placed that
tbey do not interfere with work at the
bench, are handy when wanted, and
always in place.
A bench drill cculd be attached at
the right hand end o. bench,, and a
steel vise. •One''of the most useful
tools for both blacksmiths and wood
workmen, would be most suitably
placed near one of the legs, aa at the

Farm Reading.
With the long evenings ot wintei
soon coming on, it is time to begin
making plans for tbe winter's supply
of reading matter, including books,
magazines and papers. With the great
variety of periodicals that can be got
at low prices in connection with the
many clubbing offers that are made by
one's home and outside papers there is
really no excuse why any town or farm
home should be destitute of interesting and up to date reading matter. The
bald facts are that a good many children do not like to stay at home evenings because there is little there to
attract or interest them, and there is
no way in which this difficulty can be
more readily corrected than in that
indicated above. In addition to the
home paper and a good agricultural
paper or papers, there should be a
wholesome family weekly, which
should contain something of interest
for -every member of the family. And
there should be one or more good
monthly magazines, of whiflh the variety is large and the quality excellent. If this plan is carried out and a
game board is provided, we see no
good reason why the members of the
family circle should not spend many
a happy evening when the weather is
cold and forbidding without. If tbe
home has not been all that it might
have been in the past in these re- |
spects, would it not be well worth
while to inaugurate n change and see
if it does not give large returns?

Animals and Rain.
It seems strange that no animal, unless it be the squirrel, seems to build
Itself a shelter with the express object
of keeping off the rain, which they all
so much dislike. Monkeys are miserable ln wet and could easily build shelters if they had the sense to do so. but
%ven the orang outang, which builds a

Editor  Dauphin   Herald
The present editor of the Dauphin
Herald is one of the many progressive ond ambitious young men who
have left the domain of Uncle Sam
to seek fame and fortune in the
"Last West." Versatile in his accomplishments and pleasing in his
address, it is no wonder that he iB
finding Western Canada as a field
for ambitious endeavor all that could
be desired, and is meeting in a remarkable degree with the success
that awaits all young men of his
stamp in the new towns of this new
and vigorous country.
Mr. Moore waB born at Monmouth,
Illinois, in 1867. He attended public
school till 14 years of age, and after
this was variously engaged, working
first on the farm, leaving this to
follow the printers' trade for three
years, then in a railroad office for a
similar length of time. He took up
editoral work in 1892 in Iowa, South
Dakota, and for a short time in St.
Paul, Minn., From this place he was
appointed to a clerkship in the census office at Washington, D.C., which
he filled for three years up to 1903.
Mr. Moore had begun reading law in
1894, and after leaving the censuB
bureau, went into practice of law
in Iowa. It was while at Washington he took a post-graduate course at
th3 National University of Law in
1902. He also received a degree in
Patent Law in 1903. He was "special
examiner" of all the schedules relating to "printing, publishing and periodicals" in the census ofiice, and had j
to supervise the examination and
editing of the schedules of over
twenty-four thousand copies—such as
preparing reports of amounts invested in property, machinery, wages
paid, etc.
In spite of the comfort of this position, the lure of the west called him
to Manitoba, in 1904, and he assumed charge of tlie Dauphin Herald in
October of that year. In addition to
dls editorial work Mr. Moore travels
noitli end west of Dauphin as general agent for the Sawyer-Mussey
Mrs. Moore is then in charge as
manager and local editor for' the
greater part of the time, and is to
be complimented on the fact that the
paper, which depends on her for a
great part of its success, is showing
superior care and typographical excellence in keeping with the progressive town in which it is published.
It is to be hoped that Mr. and Mrs.
Moore will long be spared to follow
their excellent calling, and that they
will be plentifully endowed with this
world's goods as a just remuneration
tor their services in the cause of
their town and country.
Zam-Buk  Then   Applied   and    Gave
Instant Relief.
An accident in a Toronto home the
other day might have had very serious consequences had it not been for
Zam-Buk. Miss Martha Green, of 9
Claremont St., in taking a pan of boiling fat from the oven spilt it over
her right hand. "The boiling fat ran
into the palm of my hand," she says,
"and over all my fingers. You may
well imagine the agony I suffered' in
consequence. I was almost wild with
the pain. The hand became swollen,
and large blisters formed all over the
palm and along the fingers. For
over a month I was unable to use the
hand at all. I tried several kinds
of salves and liniments, but the
wound seemed apparently no better.
It was altogether too severe for these
preparations to heal. About this time
I was advised to try Zam-Buk. I
stopped using all other preparations
and applied Zam-Buk instead. The
very first application soothed my
hand and seemed to draw out the fire
and inflammation; and as I kept on
using Zam-Buk the blisters gradually
dried up and disappeared. In a very
short time the scald was healed completely.
This is but one instance of the uses
to which Zam-Buk can be so advantageously applied. It is equally effective for bums, cuts, bruises, abrasions, sprains, and stiffness. It
also cures eczema, ulcers, sores, blood
poison, ringworm, scalp sores, chronic
wounds, acne, blackheads, pimples,
cold sores, chapped hands, and all
skin diseases and injuries. Rubbed
well on to the chest, in cases of cold,
it relieves the aching and tightness,
and applied as an embrocation it
cures rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia,
etc. All druggists sell Zam-Buk at
60c a box, or it may be obtained
from the Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, upon
receipt of price.   Six boxes for $2.50.

Feeding ths Idle Morse.
The horse not only requires less feed
when idle than when at work, but is
actually injured if the ration is not reduced on days of idleness. Some feeders of high standing reduce the feed
of their work horses on Sundays and
holidays in the belief that even one
day's feeding of a working ration
while the horse is at rest is injurious.
It is now the belief of all who have
thoroughly studied the subject that
idle horses are fed too heavily aa a
rule. But no fixed ration can be
named, s>.ice the food requirements of
individual horses differ so widely.
Close observation will enable the feeder to adapt quantity to the needa of
each animal.—Professor Henry.
Treatment For Want.
A wen is a hard, fibrous tumor resulting usually from a blow and is occasionally to be found on tbe ribs, legs
and jaws of animals. If noticed when
first started, wben it is sore, foment
with hot water several times a day for
three or four days; then paint it once
a day with tincture of iodine.- If, however, it has become large and hard,
nothing will do but to dissect it out,
which may be easily done, but it were
better done by a veterinary surgeon.
Then dress the place two or three
times a day with a solution of half an
ounce of carbolic acid dissolved in one
pint of water.—Atlanta Constitution.
While more prevalent in winter,
when sudden changes in the weather
try the strongest constitutions, colds
and coughs and ailments of the
throat may come in any season. At
the first sight of derangement use
Bickle's Anti-Consumptive Syrup. Instant relief will be experienced, and
use of the medicine until the cold
disappears will protect the lungs from
attack. For anyone with throat or
chest weakness ft cannot be surpassed.
A Philadelphia school mistresB was
giving her pupils instruction in the
elements of physiology, and among
other things told them that whenever they moved an arm or a leg it
was in response to a message from
the brain. "The brain always sends
a message to your arm or leg whenever you wish to move the particular
member," Bhe explained.
At last a mischievous boy aroused
her anger by his apparent inattention
to the lesson.
"Hold out your hand I" she exclaimed.
The boy did not move.
"Why .don't you hold out your
hand ?" said the teacher.
"I'm waiting for the message from
my brain," the lad replied.—Philadelphia Ledger.

There oro people to whom it is a
penance to listen. T.liero tire bores who
for their sius ngninst society ought to bo
imprisoned and condemned to listen in
perpetuity to each other's discourses,
hut, after all, these are few. Social
intercourse suffers far more from tlie
fact that too many want to talk and
too few arc willing to listen. Conversation uuder such conditions ceases to bo
a pleasant method of exchanging ideas
and becomes a struggle for supremacy.

The   Expert iu •-iit»   That   Have   Been
Made and Wbat Ther Show.
Does It appear that any one has prepared from sterilized bouillon by the
action of radium or in any other way
living organisms capable of multiplying either by repeated subdivision or
by means of spores or capable of producing definite fermentlve changes
such as those which we associate wltb
go many of the organisms hitherto Investigated? The uuswer jumps straight
to the lips. No such discovery has been
recorded nor has anything been observed which would justify us in supposing that we are on the verge of
making such a discovery at the present
The fact ls tbat, though much bas
been written and among other things
quite a big book, very little has really
been accomplished up to the present.
A few preliminary experiments suggested by the marvelous qualities ot
radium have been made, and that Is
all. Those experiments and their results, which are not at all revolutionary, may be described In half a dozen
sentences. Mr. Burke finds that when
small quantities of radium bromide or
chloride are scattered on the surface of
carefully sterilized bouillon well protected from the air In closed vessels
minute objects appear iu tbe bouillon
after one or two days.
These objects have been watched,
and Mr. Burke reports that after their
first appearance they develop into two
dots, next present the appearance of
dumbbells and subsequently of biscuits, afterward take on forms which
remind an observer of frog's spawn
and finally divide, lose their Individuality and become transformed Into minute crystals.
These bodies, which Mr. Burke very
prematurely describes as "cultures," do
not multiply, as livlug organisms
should do, when they are transferred
to fresh tubes of sterilized bouillon,
though, as might be expected, they
give some slight evidence that the activity of the radium salt Is not quite
exhausted by its flrst action, and they
are soluble In water.
Now, It would be dogmatic to say
that radium will not generate life in
organic matter, but clearly Mr. Burke
gives us little or no reason to suspect
that It does  so  at  present.

The Bronchial Tubes and Lungs are Protected against
the Evil Effects of Colds by
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine
You can never tell just what form
I a cold will take, but you may be sure
i it will search out your weakest- organ.
With some it assumes a catiirrhal na-
i ture and affects the head principally;
I with others it becomes bronchitis and
I there sets in a bard cough and severe
chest pains. Then, again, it often
| leads to inflammation of the lungs.
1 consumption, pneumonia or may set-
I tie on the kidneys or bowels.
Because coWb do not always prove
j serious  some    people   take    chances
I with them, but the risk is great. Dr.
I Chase's Syrup of Linseed ' and Turpentine is intended for people    who
want    assurance against   serious results from colds. ,
This great medicine has absolutely
proven its extraordinary control over
coughs, colds, croup, bronchitis,
whooping cough, asthma and all such
ailments, and for this reason has a
place in the great majority of homes.
Treea Worth  Growing.
As ornamental trees tbe beeches attract attention primarily on account
of their dignity of form and peculiarly "clean" appearance; they give ample and spreadiug shade; the leaves
aro remarkably free from tbe Insect
pests, nnd they can generally be readily transplanted. They thrive best in a
rich, deep, sandy loam, but will grow
well in any ordinary soil. The trees
attain a height of 80 to 100 feet. In
the different seasons the beech presents totally different pictures. In
summer it is a broad dome of grateful
shade; In winter a glory of dazzling
light gray; iu spring It floats out Its
Boft velvety gold green leaves, and lu
autumn lt is a rich and mellow mingling of subdued yellow brawns and
grays.—Garden   Magazine.
Letter Carriers'  Scarfl.
"Show me a letter carrier," said a
postal official, "and I'll show you
somewhere or other on the man the
scar of a dog's teeth. Letter carriers
hate dogs, and with good reason, for
they are continually getting nipped.
It ls at houses with front gardens
that thfcy are troubled most. Dogs
run loose in these gardens, and it ls
their delight to bite letter carriers. I
myself have two sears on my hand
and two on my leg. Take a census
of every trade, and I'll guarantee that
the letter carriers will lend all In their
percentage of dog scars."
Frank L. Wellington has died at
us home in Trinity avenue, New
Vork, the victim of o disease which

One day while holdng a strap in a

short time later a leg bone snapped.
According to his physician this terrible
condition was brought about by taking medicine which contained a certain mineral  poison.
Again and again has it been demonstrated i»->at mineral medicines are
harmful. It is because Bileans, while
o effective for all liver and digestive
lisorders, yet contain no trace of any
mineral, but are, on the contrary,
purely herbal, that they have won the
praise of medical men, trained nurses
and scientists all the world over.
:5ileans differ from pretty nearly
■very other liver medicine in containing no mercury, and from pretty
nearly every other stomach medicine
in being free from bismuth. They
are also free from alcohol. They are
compounded from the finest known
medicinal herbs and roots and are
thus the best family medicine that
•an be obtained. They operate gently on the bowels, curing constipation
and piles. They correct acidity of
the stomach, stimulate the digestion,
tone up the liver, and correct tbe
secretion of bile. Their general action is at tlie same time corrective
and tonic—correcting faulty secretion,
toiling up weak and debilitated organs. They thus cure anemia, green
sickness, female ailments and irregularities, blood impurities, rheumatism, etc. For nausea, headache, gas,
pain in the chest and between tlie
shoulders they are also very effective. Their operation i.s mild, yet effective. In curing constipation they
do not cause after constipation, nor
do they ever cause griping. Mothers
will find them beneficial in the many
little ailments to whicll children are
subject. All druggists sell Bileans at
fifty cents a box, or they may be obtained post free from the Bilean Co.,
Toronto, on receipt of price. For
$2.50 a parcel of six boxes will be
mailed. This is the most economical
form for family use.
Pope's Skull.
The skull of Alexander Pope, the
poet and satirist- is in the private
collection of a phrenologist. During
some alterations in the churehynrd
where Pope was buried it wus necessary to move his coffin, which was
ope_r d at the time to ascertain the
state of his remains. By bribing the
sexton of the church possession of
the poet's skull was obtained for tbe
night, and in the morning a different skull was returned instead. The
cost of the skull, including the bribe,
wus  £50.

it would develop into consumption if
I did not succeed in getting proper
treatment. A friend advised me to
try Dr. Chase's Syrup of LinBeed and
Turpentine and I began to improve
before I bad taken half a bottle. One
bottle cured ray cold, which I believe, would have proven very serious if I had not used this medicine."

Bargain Hunters—European and American
B PARIS, 1906.
OL.tt American bargain hunter who
Journeys to town on a steaming
day ln search ot summer bargains need have no shame on lhat
score. The only thing that should
give her Buch concern ls, that, after long
practice, she Isn't a touch to her shrewd
foreign sister when on bargains bent.
The former buys her bargains with a
recklessness unknown to the latter, and
it did not take many hours of a week
lately spe: across the channel, nor more
than a few minutes of contrast ln the
Bon Marche, to discover this.
The bargain counter offers a great op-
Sortunlty tor character study. The open-
anded side of an American is found to
be coupled with a peculiar greediness
that demands everything worth while in
sight. A foreigner is generally direful and, though Investing In a smaller
way, takes longer, tor she goes over and
over the tempting array before a final
In London the months of July and
August are absolutely given over to bargain sales, from the most exclusive
shops down to' the push-cart vender.
To an American shopper the deliberation of those stoical English, which always appears like indifference, makes
you wonder why they troubled to come
at all (though the salesperson doubtless
knews better); and this Is not nearly so
curious as the nature of the main drawing card: fur coats and winter wraps!
lio recent Institution, either, for upon
remarking, ln one of the best places In
.Regent street, that a certain style of
fur bolero was like the very lateBt models, they told us thai Canada had expressly prepared a whole stock of the
name order for these midsummer sales.
Now that every one has left town
lt ls quito the fashion to "motor" In
for the day. The trip is really worthy
of a gay luncheon at the "New Rltz"
.when you count up a:i that ls being
.'saved.' Old not the magnetic word
"bargain" draw them thither, would that
extra .ur Jacket be Included in next
winter's wardrobe, I wonder, with a
cloth skirt to match It, of course, and
a hat of contrasting fur later on? That
must remain an open question.
And It Is not only Bond or Regent
•treet that Indulges ln the "summer
il»—-"   "Summer barnains" an the oush-
carts of pitiful Whltechapel tell us the
contagion has reached all classes. Here
the "flower girl" la found ln shoala
on Saturday night pondering vylth Indecision between a new white waist, of
coarsest texture, that can be worn tomorrow and a shawl of winter weight
that will be pawned long before the flrst
snow comes.
The woman still as she Jokes and
Jostles over a "bargain," for all her
curious pot hat and uncomfortable
shawl—that uniform as mysterious for
Its ugliness as for Its discomfort. A pathetic figure, thl- bleary-eyed London
"flower girl," with her bitter misnomer.
In all the civilized world there ls no
creature bo abject.
By the French "dp me du monde" the
great artist ol dress ls seldom patron-
lzed, mainly because she can't afford
It; but often lt is merely from the
economical standpoint. Madame iu
Mom!., could give the rest cards and
spades, and then win hands down—she
ls the most wonderful of frugalists. Indeed, extravagance is cons.dered the
hallmark ot vulgarity In that charmed
circle of the French capital—as the
few foreigners who have been permitted
a glimpse of Its beautiful simple life can
testify. There great culture Is taken as
a matter of course, — ong with the
regulation number of footmen and the
family portraits by Nattier and Van
Loo and Da Vinci.
An occasional beautiful bit of household goods Is the favorite extravagance;
and, lei me tell "on. It ls xhibited and
discussed as a work of art—as It usually is. Of the latter, In the eal sense,
the family collection needs nt recruits,
the-occurrence of a wcuing being th**
single instance of such  Investment.
And this dr me of the old noLlesse 's
the real bargain hunter, after all,
though she is conspicuous by her absence only at the summer sale. Far
away in her chateau she Is entertaining
her friends with ingeniously devised, but
always simple, sorts of pleasures. That
Is the keynote of her while existence,
that careful planning. Household roods
and clothes are selected with the same
good taste, nothing bizarre, everything
substantial, so that the rapid changes
of fashion make but little difference.
Of   course,   she   is   celebrated for her
cleverness ln remodeling and managing.
I can vouch for the story of a young
counters who got for her maid a position at Paqu.n's and continued to pay
her while she served an apprenticeship
there; and now this young beauty Is
noted for her gowns, yet she spends less
than flfteen hundred franca . aOO) yearly on her entire wardrobe.
To American ears, lt must be confessed, ..ihe- constant recurrence of that
favorite byword, "II taut falie lea.
-letltcs economies," becomes _at u trifle
rksome. though it be ever so lightly
spoken. They consider the most frugal
of us pos,lively lavish, these French
women. I am aft- 1, were they In town
at this seusoi. to see the . nerican bargain hauler In her glorv. they would
brand her as nothing short of a criminal.
At least, the Bon Marche and Maga-
zln du Louvre don't object i • her, for
these are her happy hunting grounds.
The exclusive dressmaker does not are
to aptu his golden i.arvest by letting
her know of the existence of such a
thing as bargains "chez lul." To the
great stores this luxurious bargain
hunter is very seful, howtver; they offer her al prices that seem like robbery the remnant of their spring tea-
son, beautiful real laces by the piece,
silk stocking:! and gloves by the box.
The latter are to go up to twice tniir
price ln October, by the way, owing to
the scarcity of skins caused by long
glove fashions.
Some amusing snatches of conversation are overheard in thc.:e days, when
the discomfort of the crowd and the
heat seems positively to increase witn
the babel of mixed tongues—and the
French disregard tor ventilation! Yesterday i stood beside a couple of New
Yorker.—from their accent; both wera
siick ana span enough for a weeding
"Do you know, dear," said she, "I
think it would pay us to come over
every summer, or at least every other
summer, Just to get stocked in tht-s»
little things."
Perhaps her words were lost in the
din, before reaching the ear for which
ihey were intended; at least, the answer to them was hardly an obvious
one; it was spoken slowly, In a far-off,
soliloquizing   tone:
"I wonder," said he, "If these oar-
gains are repily a saving?" B. D.

'   To Make Eyelets
THERE'S a  new   way   of   making
those troublesome eyelets, discovered by a girl who is locally famous for Inventing labor-saving ideas.
It consists in running the eyelet
around and then cutting It from end to
end, and buttonholing lt, making the
stitches aB 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.
It is about one-fifth as hard to do as
the usual way; and the difference ln
length of time is even more marked.

WITH most of us, drawnwork
means tkat done in Mexican
style, with the straight lines
and the countless forms of
splderwebs and butterflies which mark
It. But there are plenty of other kinds
—those developed by other nationalities,
each bearing the Imprint of racial
Mexican drawnwork, like everything
else, has its grades, but not even the
coarsest is ugly, while the finest Is as
delicate as an exquisite bit of lace.
Strangely enough, the women who make
It do the work on good, substantial
linens—there's little of the flimsy type
of work about that, even the least ex
pensive of lt that finds Its way up to
Japanese work Is as different from It
as the Japanese themselves 'from the
Instead of the straight lines—the
threads hold In place by buttonholing
wherever the linen has been cut—all
sorts of odd little patches of It—queer.
Irregular things—are Introduced here
and there, apparently at haphazard, ln
reality, purt of a weirdly beautiful design, which only reveals Itself when
the last stitches have been set.
A great deal of Japanese drawnwork
ls used In combination with that fist
type of embroidery which ls so distinct
ively Japanese. A ' dragon, made of
many scales, each embroidered by Itself
and outlined to emphasize its separate-
ncss, will coll Its length in a position es
fantastic as the mythical creature itself. Here and there, wherever Its introduction will lighten or add to the
effect of so much flat, solid, all-white
embroidery, Is Introduced an irregular
patch of drawnwork. Usually, like ^. ery-
thlng In Japanese art and decoration, it
is symbolical of something—perhaps the
liollovt of a breaking wave, perhaps a
r*ft__d. But lt ls always beautiful, always Just the right "last touch" to a bit
of artistic work.
Threads, with the Japanese, are not
to be considered as obstacles, but to be
handled ln any form whatever that will
accomplish the work.
There are no involved stitches In Japanese work; the stitch Ib nearly always
the same—Just a queer little, Indescribable catching together of threads ln tiny
blocks, which begin and end as Indefinitely, yet as surely accomplishing a set
purpose, as their philosophy.
Russian drawnwork Is perhaps most
wonderful of all. for the most Involved
figures are left In solid threads upon a
background of delicate drawnwork. Some
of   lt—that  done  on   cobwebby   linen—
THE prettiest style
ln gloves hns
come back into
fashion — long
rhousquctalre gloves,
both ln suede and giace
That long, wrlnkled-
up effect is the most
attractive style out-
why, nobody knows,
and nobody, least of
all the woman who
has discovered Its be-
comlngnesB, and
reveling ln the knowledge, cares.
Short sleeves (and
there are to be short
sleeves   ln   every   sort
of costume) are responsible for their
return. And the prettiest part about
them 13 that they must be definitely
wrinkled up—there's no stretching
out a glove to make a long, smooth
Twelve-button gloves, so popular
when mousquetaire gloves were last
in fashion, aren't popular at all —
everything is either eight or sixlcen-
button length; the eight ls worn with
Ihree-qinrter, or even long, sleeves, and
thp longer ones with elbow sleeves,
tucking the glove woll up under the
edge of the sleeve.
' Tho return of black into form has
brought with it long black gloves—the
greatest comfort imaginable. Fur long
black gloves are becoming to almost
every hand, making small ones look even
.mailer, and a large hand I'mall and
graceful. And it Is such a relief to wear
a kind that doesn't have to be cleaned
every lime you wear them.
Rut tlon't mako the mistake of wear-
ng black gloves with anything but a
black gown.
In  evening' gloves   white,  of  course,
rules; but, besides,
there's a wealth of
evening gloves in colors
—yet colors so delicately
suggested that they are
no more than the merest
tints, exquisite ln their
_oft suggestion of color.
Green and pink, blue
and violet—every color is
there, but it is Just one
shade removed from
white. With a pink
gown, those pink-tintetl
gloves look white, yet
tone In with the costume
without even that slight
sense of contrast that
goes with while worn
with color.
Both glace and suetle
are worn, with the prettiest distinctions Imaginable. With soft chiffons
land chiffon will be worn
a great deal) and laco,
and the whole long line
of rich but lull-finish
materials, suede gloves
will be worn, as more In
keeping with that curious
tinalliy of depth that
characterizes those
Willi   the   shimmer   of
silk    nntl    of    crepe   de
chine,    glace    kid    combines   best,   echoing   the
smooth sheen of tbe silk.
Street gloves are queer,
mannish   things,   square
and    all    but    awkward,
and yet absolutely stunning.       They're     grent,
neavy   things,    for   the
most part, with the newest tiling about them un
odd,   square  cut,   full  of
style antl  interest.
One or two  clasps,  or
a single big button, fastens them. When
only one fastening is used, the glove Is
cut quit, short, more like a man's glove
than anything we've ever had beforo.
White, for the more d sy occasions.
Is still first favorite; but new, unusual
palo shades of tan and gray, and of
queer, indescribable neutral tints, nre
all good. In the darker shades there's a
host of new things—heavy gray gloves
and the richest tans and "oaks," and,
perhaps host of all, certainly strong in
thoir styles, black gloves stitched with
The backs are no longer decorated with
row ufter row uf stitching. Instead, are
used only the plainest of little welts—-
throe welts—"Paris stitching.'' Ihey call
It—or "spear stitching," where each welt
has two accompanying tiny oblique
welts pointing down townrd the wrists.
There's even a sprinkling of colors,
some of them turned almost Into novelties by stitchlngs of a contrasting color.
Bluo, stitched with red, or with a dull
yellow threud, suggestive ot old gold, is
looks a little like darned work done on,
filet net.
It ls the only form of drawnwork in
which initials have been attempted, an*
they are not only attempted ln It, but-
Anything that has design can be reproduced in the Russian form of drawnwork-
—no matter how many small curves and '
windings the pattern or the initial
takes, the work follows It. Whole fronts
of blouses are made in a single piece,
with odd, conventional groupings of
flowers and leaves laid all over it, the
design left of the solid threads thrown.
Into dramatic relief by the way'.the
background is delicately picked out
around lt. Even the velnings of leaves:
and blossoms are executed.
When you see It and realize that the
false cutting of a single stitch spoils
the whole piece, the great delicacy and
interest of the work reveals itself.
German drawnwork Is widely unlike
all three others, being a prim series of
tiny blacks, worked out more In an outline of a pattern—always formal, conventional In type—than in an Involved
design. Less beautiful than the others.
It has a certain solidity of construction well suited to the character of the
people who create It, and to the sort of
linens, close and firm in weave, on
which lt ls Invariably executed.
In one form or another drawnwork
finds its way onto every sort of thing,
from table linen to blouses—and even to
an occasional gown; and in every one of
Its forms lt is a definitely beautiful trimming.
PICTURE frames which have takem
on a peculiar streaky., dingy lookr
can often be fixed up, at home at
small cost, But If Uie frame is
covered wilh the real gold leaf, don't at-,
tempt to touch it up yourself; and don't
include that in the list of those easily, .
inexpensively fixed up. Almost anything else can be subjected to hoi_-
treatment with satisfactory results.
For" the usual gill frames, in which
most of our oil paintings are set, good
preparations come for rogliiling that aro
easily applied, The frame should be.
wiped off carefully lirst, the cluth just
moistened so that it will curry off the
dust successfully. A round brush—one
of the sort invented fur stencil work-
gets the dust out of carvings in a way
that nothing else can. Go over every
nuuk and cranny carefully, and even;
moisten the. brush slightly.
When your frame Is clean and per- -
fectly dry, apply the preparation of gilt.
The only particular cure you'll huve to
consider Is that it is evenly put un. If'
sumo parts of the frame are more dingy,
than the rest, give tlie whole frame it,
couple of coats; or go over the dingy
places llrst. giving then, a separate cout,
and letting it dry before going over the
whole frame.
Wooden frames may be cleaned Willi

only slightly moist—u long wuy frtotr.
wet. I
The same treatment, only with oIol'.-S',
definitely wet wiih tepid water aniij-
soaped, may 'uo applied io metal frames.;
Only be careful nnt tu get your cloth,
so wel that the water will have any-
chance to work Into the joinings. Antl
