A dozen hands went up.
"You tell," aaid be to one.
"It's here," was tbe answer.
"Where's here?"
A boy looked thoughtful.
"Nex' t' Joe Llnley's cow pastury
be ventured presently.
"Will you tell us?" the teacher asked, looking at a bright eyed girl.
"In Faraway, N. Y," said she glibly.
"Tom Llnley, I'll take that," said tbe
teacher ln a lazy tone. He was looking down at his book. Where he Bat,
facing the class, be could see none of
tbe boys without turning. But he bad
not turned. To the wonder of all, up he
apoke as Tom Llnley was handing a
slip of paper to Joe Beach. There was
a little pause. The young man hesitated, rose and walked nervously down
the aisle.
"Thank you," said the teacher as he
took the message and flung It on the
flre unread. "Faraway, N. Y.," he continued on bis way to the blackboard as

He drew a circle, indicating the four

At the Llnley schoolhouse something
hod happened. Cunning no sooner
showed Its head than lt waa bruised
like a serpent brawny muscles had
been easily outdone, boldness had
grown timid, conceit had begun to ebb.
A serious look bad settled upon all
faces. Every scholar had learned one
thing, learned It well and quickly—lt
was to be no playroom.
There waa a recess of one honr at
noon. All went for their dinner palls
and sat quietly, eating bread and butter, followed by doughnuts, apples and
Tbe young men bad walked to the
road. Nothing had been said. Tbey
drew near each other. Tom Llnley
looked up at Joe Beach. In tis face
one might have seen a cloud of sympathy that bad its silver lining of amusement
"Powerful?" Tom Inquired soberly.
"What?" said Joe.
"Powerful?" Tom repeated.
"Powerful! Jlininy crimps!" said Joe
"Wby didn't ye kick him?"
"Kick him?"
"Kick him?"
"Kick him."
"Huh—dunno!" said Joe, with a look
of sadness turning Into contempt
"Scalrt?" the other Inquired.
"Scalrt? Na-a-w," said Joe scornfully. -
"What was yei then?"
"Parr'Iyzed—seems so."
There waa an outbreak of laughter.
"You was goin' t' help," said Joe,
addressing Tom Llnley.
A moment of silence followed.
"You was goin' t' help," tbe fallen
bully repeated, witb large emphasis on
the pronoun.
"Help?" Tom inquired, sparring for
.wind, as It were.
"Yes, help."
"Yon was licked 'fore I had time."
"Didn't dust- that's what's tbe mat-
ter-dldn't dust," said  big Joe, with
• tone of Irreparable Injury.
"Wouldn't 'a' been nigh ye fer • mil-
lyun dollars," said Tom soberly.
"Why not?"
"'Twan't safe; that's why."
" 'Frald o' him, ye coward I"
"No; 'frald o' you."
"'Cos If one o' yer feet had hit *
feller when ye come up ag'In that
wall," Tom answered slowly, "there
.wouldn't 'a' been nuthln' left uv him,"
All laughed loudly.
Tben there was another silence. Joe
broke lt after a moment of deep
"Like t' know how be seen me," said
" 'Tis cur'us," said another.
"Guess he's one o' tbem preformers
like tbey have at the circus," wos the
opinion of Sam Beach.   "Seo ono take
• pig out o' bis hat las' summer."
" 'Taln't fair an' square," said Tom
Llnley; "not Jest eggzae'ly."
"Gosh! B'lleve I'll run away," said
Joe after a pause. "Ain't no fun here
for me." /
"lieltnjiot." aaid Archer Town: "not

"Wby not?"
"Waal, he'd see ye wherever ye was
an' do suthln' to ye," said Archer.
"Prob'ly he's heard all we been sayln'
"Waal, I ain't said nuthln' I'm
'shamed of," said Sam Beach thoughtfully.
A bell rang, and all hurried to the
schoolhouse. The afternoon was uneventful. Those rough edged, brawny
fellows had become serious. Hope bad
died In their breasts, and now tbey
looked as if they had eome to its funeral. They began to examine their
books rs one looks at a bitter draft before drinking it. In every subject the
teacher took a new way not likely to
be hard upon tender feet For each
lesson he had a method of bis own.
He angled for the interest of the class
and caught lt Wltb some a term of
school had been as a long sickness,
lengthened by the medicine of books
and the surgery of the beech rod. They
had resented It with Ingenious deviltry.
The confusion of the teacher and some
Incidental fun were Its only compensations. The young man gave bla best
thought to the correction of this mental attitude. Four o'clock came at last
The work of the day was over. Weary
with its tension, all sat waiting the
teacher's word. For a little he stood
facing tbem.
"Tom Llnley and Joe Beach," said
be In * low voice, "will you wait a
moment after the others hare gone?
School's dismissed-"
There was a rush of feet and a rattle
of dinner polls. All were eager to get
borne with the story of tbat day save
tbe two It had brougbt to sbnme. They
sat quietly as tbe others went away.
A deep silence fell ln tbat little room.
Of a sudden It had become * lonely
Tbe teacher damped the flre and pnt
on hia overshoes.
"Boys." said be, drawing a big silver
watch, "hear that watch tlckiSg. It
tells the flight of seconds. You are—
eighteen, did you say? Tbey turn
boys into oxen here in this country;
just a thing of bone and muscle, living to sweat and lift and groan. Maybe I can save you, but there's not a
mtnute to lose. With 'you it all depends on this, term of school. When
it's done- you'll either be ox or driver.
Play checkers?"
Tom nodded.
"I'll come over some evening, and
we'll bave a game.   Good night"
THAT flrst week Sidney Trove
went to board at tbe home of
"the two old maidSj" a stone
house on Jericho road, with a
front door rusting on idle binges and
blinds ever drawn. It was a hundred
feet or more from the highway, and In
summer there were flowers along the
path from Its little gate and vines
climbing to the upper windows. In
winter its garden was buried deep under tbe snow. One family—the
Vaughns—came once In awhile to see
"the two old maids." Few others ever
saw tbem save from afar. A dressmaker came once a year and made
gowns for thein thnt wtere carefully
bung In closets, but never worn. To
many of tbelr neighbors they were as
dead as If they bad been long In tbelr
graves. Tales of their economy, of
their odd habits, of tbelr past went
over bill and dale to far places. Tbey
bad never boarded tbe teacher and
were put In a panic wben the trustee
came to speak of It
"He's a grand young man," said he;
"good company, nnd you'll enjoy lt"
They  looked soberly" at each other
According to tradition, one was fifty-
four, tbe otber fifty-live years of age.
An exclnmation broke from the lips of
one. It sounded like tlie letter "y"
whispered quickly.
"Y!" the other answered.
"It might make a match," sold Mr.
Blouut, tbe trustee, smiling.
"Y! Samuel Blount!" said tbe younger one, coming near and smiting bim
playfully on the elbow. "You stop!"
Miss Letltla began laughing silently.
They never laughed aloud.
"If be didn't murder us," said Miss
S'mantha doubtfully.
'•Nonsense," said the trustee. "I'll
answer for him.'*
"Can't tell whnt inen'Il do," she persisted weakly. "When I was In Albany
with Alma Haskins a man came 'long
an' tried to pass the time o' day with
us. Wa Jes' looked t'other way an'
didn't nreten' to hear blm. It's awful
to tblnk what might 'a' happened."
".tie wiped invisible tears with an
embroidered IM-dkerchief..  The dear
may naa spent a good part of her life
thinking of that narrow escape.
"If he wa'n't too particular," said
Miss Letltla. wbo bad been laughing
at tbls maiden fear of her sister.
"If he would mind bis business we—
we might take him for one week,"
said Miss S'mantha. She glanced inquiringly nt her sister.
Letltla and S'mantha Tower, "the
two old maids," had but one near relative, Ezra Tower, a brother, of tbe
same neighborhood.
There were two kinds of people In
Faraway, those that Ezra Tower spoke
to and those he didn't. The latter were
of the majority. As a forswearer of
communication he was unrivaled. His
Imagination was a very slaughter
house, In which all who crossed him
were slain. If tbey were passing he
looked the other way and never even
saw them again. Since the probate of
his father's will both sisters were of
the number never spoken to. He was
a thin, tall, sullen, dry and dusty man.
Dressed for church of a Sunday, be
looked aa If he had been stored a year
ln some neglected cellar. His broadcloth had a dingy aspect bis hair and
beard and eyebrows the hue of a cobweb. He had a voice slow and rusty, a
look arid and unfruitful. Indeed, lt
seemed as lf the fires of hate and envy
had burned him out.
The two old maids, feeling the disgrace of it and fearing more, ceased to
visit their neighbors or even to pass
their own gate. Poor Miss S'mantha
fell Into the deadly mire of hypochondria. She often thought herself very
ill and sent abroad for every medicine
advertised ln the county paper. She
had ever a faint look and a thin, sickly voice. She bad tbe man fear—a
deep distrust of men—never ceasing to
be on her guard. In girlhood she had
been to Albany. Its splendor and the
reckless conduct of one Alma Haskins,
companion of, her travels, bad been
ever since a day-long perennial topic
of her conversation. Miss Letltla was
more amiable. Sbe had a playful,
cheery heart in ber. a mincing and precise manner and a sweet voice. Wbat
with the cleaning, dusting and preserving they were ever busy. A fly,
driven hither and thither, fell of exhaustion If not disabled with a broom.
They were two weeks getting ready for
the teacher. Wben at last he came
(hat afternoon supper was ready, and
tbey were nearly worn out
"Here he Is!" one whispered suddenly from a window. Then, with a
last poke at her hair, Miss Letltla admitted the teacher. They spoke their
greeting ln a half whisper and stood
near, waiting timidly for his coat and
"No, thank you," said he, taking
them to a nail. "I can do my own
hanging, as the man said when he committed suicide."
Miss S'mantha looked suspicious and
walked to the other side of the stove.
Impressed by the silence of the room,
much exaggerated by the ticking of the
clock, Sidney Trove sat a moment
looking around him. Daylight had begun to grow dim. The table, with Its
cover of white linen, was a thing to
give one Joy. A ruby tower of jelly,
a snowy summit of frosted cake, a red
pond of preserved berries, a mound of
chicken pie nnd a corduroy marsh of
mince, steaming volcanoes of new biscuit and a great heap of apple fritters lay in a setting of. blue china.
They stood a moment by the stove—
tbe two sisters—both trembling ln this
unusual publicity. Miss Letltla bad
ber hand upon the teapot.
"Our tea Is ready," said she presently, advancing to the table. She spoke
in a low, gentle tone.
"This Is grand!" said be, sitting down
with them. "I tell you we'll have fun
before I leave here."
(To Be continued.)
Rock on Which Manr « Happy Marital Ship Ha* Been Wrecked.
Many a good,matrimonial ship, wltb
Its sunlit cargo of happiness and hope,
has been wrecked on the rocks of family Interference.
It ls ln the first years of married life
that foreign interference ls most trying and dangerous, and It Is this very
time when It ls most conspicuous-and
These early years are time of gradual adjustment to new conditions, the
formative period of harmonizing witb
a new environment of growth In mutual understanding, perhaps of meet-
' Ing disappointment and of rising superior to It or of sadly revising golden
dreams and unrealized Ideals, of taking trial balances on the ledger of happiness, of awakening to the wisdom of
mutual concessions, of learning new
lessons ln the school of experience that
can never be learned vicariously.
These are the problems of two that
must be solved by them. Tbey need
only kindness, sympathy, generous cooperation.
There la no need for the family to remind the wife tbat the husband la not
eighteen carat tbat he will never make
a fortune, that they fear greatly and
then let their fear expand Into a long
catalogue of detail that fades away
Into the dim perspective of the unspoken.
After the goods are bought and sent
home and cannot be returned what ls
the use of discouraging the purchaser?
Why not point out some good points,
something helpful and Inspiring?
Sometimes the Interference of families becomes even more active and aggressive than this, and because of a
fancied grievance or a genuine opposition lt actually comes between husband
and wife and by harsh criticism or condemnation seeks to plant the seeds of
discord between them.
Here Instant loyalty of the one to the
other should assert Itself and refuse to
listen to the voice. In an Instinctive
spirit of protection there should be a
calm, dignified protest of what if unessential should never be spoken and if
of serious Import should be expressed
only In tbe presence of the one thus
charged with what he or she should
bave the. opportunity of denying or disproving before the. weeds of suspicion
bave time to root themselves In tbe
heart of the other.—Delineator.
A  Driller.
An Irishman looking for work took
his stand in a group at the gate of a
large engineering establishment. By
and by the foreman oame up to the
gate and asked:
"Are there any drillers heref"
"Yes," said Pat, stepping forward.
He got the job at one*, but he had
not been working long at the machine
when it broke down. The foreman,
in anything but a pleasant mood,
then inquired:
"Where, man, did you learn drilling?"
"In the militia," waa Pat's reply.-

Helping Out Mamma.
About a dozen people dropped in
unexpectedly at a country house in
the evening, and the fluttered hostess did her best in the limited time
St her.'disposal to make a good show
at the supper table. i  '
But she had only just begun to.
flatter herself that things were passing ofl swimmingly when her youngest daughter, aged six, remarked to
the gentleman next to her:
"Aren't these nice tumblers we've
got, Mr. Brown? They all came from
the grocer's full of marmalade. Didn't
they, ma?"—London Express.
A Whits Cobra.
A milk white cobra some five feet
.ong was killed with great difficulty, so
says a vernacular paper, hy some
peasants at a jhular near the canal
bridge on the Lahore-Mian Meer road
reoently. Hooded snakes of this tint
and size are very rare ia Uie Punjab.

ladles' home paper, the London Queen,

Man's Anatomy Suggests a Fruit Diet
As ths    Most    Suitable—What   ths
London Lancet Says On Subject.
Those,who do not want to rank aa
extremists will do well to eschew tho
glandular organs, such as sweetbreada
and liver, to pin their faith to mutton
nnd one or two kinds of fish, to give
up coffee and drink weak China tea.
Those who wish to go further should
reflect first that man is neither carnivorous nor herbivorous. For long scientists have obscured the view by useless arguments as to whether or not a
man was meant to live like a cow.
Ther* are other species than tho
flesh and grass eating animals. All
students of comparative anatomy
know that the teeth of human beings
are identical with those of the fru-
givorous apes, who live on fruits and
nuts. Not only 5,0, but the proportion
of bowel length to body length in man
corresponds exactly with that in the
same Bpecies in marked contrast to
what obtains in all carnivorous animals where the bowel is proportionally short,
A study of anatomy therefore suggests a fruit diet as the most suitable.
Further' confirmation is afforded by
the obvious predilection of nearly all
children for such food. The best fruits
for food are apples, bananas, grapes,
nuts, dates, raisins and figs.
Nuts are especially valuable owing
to the large amount of fnt they contain. The old fashioned idea that they
are indigestible is due partly to the
error in taking them at the end of an
already more than nmflle meat meal
and partly to insufficient mastication.
Chestnuts are the easiest to digeBt
snd make an excellent food. Many
other fruits may be taken, always remembering that stone fruits sometimes disagree and that acid fruits
should be taken in moderation. Strawberries contain a considerable amount
of purins and should be avoided by
all with a gouty or rheumatic tendency. Among fruits we include those
of the cereals, such as wheat and
rice. White bread is free from purin,
but brown bread contains a varying
amount derived from the husk. Tho
most wholesome form of bread ia unleavened.—Lancet.
The Junius Letters.        '   ,
No fewer than thirty-seven persons
have had the "Letters of Junius" assigned to them, but since the publication of Taylor's "Junius Identified"
in 1816 Sir Philip Francis has generally been regarded aa their author. Sir
Philip, who waa at school with
Woodfall, the publisher of the letters,
was a clerk in the Secretary of State's
office and wrote for tbe papers under
various names. It ia upon the similarity of his known writings to tha
style of Junius that hia claim is principally based, though experts have
also identified his writing with the
feigned hand in which the letters
were written. The most famous of the
other claimafe's are Burke, the statesman; the Anrorican General Lee, who
is said to have himself claimed them;
Lord George Sackville and Home

He prided himself on being a humorist. He was running down the

"You're in a hurry. What's the matter? Any good cases?"
"I should thirik so!" cried Brown,
just bursting with a new pun. "We've

Knimhty Children.
There Is doubtless much truth In the
statement made by tbe Lancet, the authoritative English medical journal, that
most naughty children are sick children^. "A large amount of the so called haughtiness of children," says the
Lancet, "may be accounted for upon
grounds whlcb quite exclude the desirability of punishment for Its correction." Among these "grounds" are
Insufficient sleep, excitement, overflowing animal spirits or actual disease in
the form of supersensitive' nerves.
Further, the Lancet adds, "Tbe faculty
of Imitation la strongly developed tn
some children, and they may copy unconsciously a ha'd habit in deed or la
word of a parent or a teacher."
His Hereditary Fos.
An Irishman, a Scotchman and an
Englishman on the unemployed list
were once tramping the country in
search of work. On coming to a field
of turnips they took several in order
to-appease the pangs of hunger. For
this they were dragged before the
judge, who took a lenient view of the
ease. Before sentencing each to 12
lashes on the bare back he agreed to
oonfer a small favor according as each
requested. The Englishman asked the
favor of his overcoat, the Scotchman
his own as well aa that of the Englishman, while the Irishman, casting
a sly glance at the judge, said, "May
it please your honor, I would just
like the Englishman across my baok."
Ideal Ftutealaac *""*■ Cow.
Years ago the old fashioned stanchion
Was. considered the Ideal fastening for
a cow. Then followed a number of
other devices, all calculated to bold ths

Beyond a doubt the Idea, fastening for
a cow is the one which permits her to
move her head ln nny direction at will,
with a fastening sufficiently long so
that sho may lie down or step around
a little. Of course it will not do to
give her rope enough bo that she will

Disastrous "Steady Work."
Dr. John S. Bulst, the famous
southern physician, said in one of his
surgical lectures at the state college:
"It is always in rather bad taste
fpr a physician to boast of being
busy. Physicians, undertakers, and
grave-diggers only cause discomfort
when they allude to good times and
"There was an old man who applied to the minister of the little village of Paint Rock for the post of
grave-digger. His references were
good, and the minister agreed to assign him to the churchyard. He was
to be paid so muoh a grave.
"The grave-digger haggled over the
price, finally accepting it.
"But will I get steady work ?' he
demanded. .  .
'Steady work !' said the minister
* Land's sake, man, with steady work
you'd bury all Paint Rock in a
week.'"—Chicago Chronicle.

There are many mothers throughout Canada who do not hesitate to
6ay that Baby's Own Tablets have
saved the lives of their, little ones.
j One of these is Mrs. John Shortill,
' Georgetown, Ont., who says: I have
no hesitation in saying that I believe
that Baby's Own Tablets saved my
little girl's life. From the time my
little girl was three months old she
ciied ali the time with indigestion.
She was frail and puny; her iood did
her no good, and 1 was literally worn
out takmj! care of her. The doctor
treated her for some time, and finally told us he could do no more for
her, and we did not expect she would
get better. It was then I learned of
-aby's Own Tablets and,decided to
try them. Before I had given her a
box of the Tablets there was a great
improvement. Her digestion was
much improved, and her bowels,
whicli had been terribly constipated,
moved regularly. From that time
she began to thrive splendidly, and is
now as healthy a child as you could
wish to see. We are now never without a box of the Tablets in the
house. Baby's Own Tablets will
promptly cure all the minor ailments
of babies and young children, and

Busy Man's Magazine.
It would be impossible to flud n mag
zine containing more timely and interesting articles tben tlie April number of
The Bnsy Man's Magazine This number opens with a character sketch of
George W. Stephens, M. P. P., President of tho Montreal Harbor Commission and Canada's most succossful
young business man. A short story of
the career of Sir Peroy Girouard, a Canadian by birth, nnd recently appointed
High Commissioner of Northern Nigeria
is also given. There ure several strong
articles on travel and descriptions, such
as Cobalt: The Goblin of tbe North;
Nearest to the North Pole; Edmonton:
Tbe World's Greatos Fnr Mart. Gold-
win Smith iu an article entitled " The
Perils of the Republic," enumerates
some of the dangers confronting the
United States. This article is of great
importence, sinoe these same problems
are confronting,-or will in the nenr future confront our govern ment. A host of
entertaining short stories serves as mental relaxation for the tired mind. Other
articles of Bpecial interest are:  "Work-
ingmeu a Gardens in France," "Heroes
of Everyday Life," "The Man Who
Lives on His Nerves,*' "When Shall We
Fly?" "World's Greatest Gambling
House—Lloyds," "Homeless England.'
In fact the April Busy Man's contains
much which no up-to-date person can
aiford to miss
Woman's Home  Companion.
The possibility that a defunct cat
should have nine ghosts probably
never occurred to any writer until
Ellis Parker Butler contributed his
very funny short story, "The
Chromatic Ghosts of Thomas," to
tho May Woman's Home Companion. The story certainly will march
down the aisles of fame arm in arm
with "Pigs is Pigs" by the same
author. Mr, Butler's story had
plenty of gootl company. In the
same number of the Woman's
Home Companion are three other
exceedingly clever short stories—■
"The Wall of the World," by Herbert D. Ward; "The Madness of
Watkins," by Henry M. Hyde, and
"Their Innocent Diversions," by
Jean Webster. Among the special
articles are "The Progress of Women in the Past Fifty Years," by
Charlotte Perkins Gilman; "Shopping in London," by Carolyn
Wells; "The Home Builders -i
Planning the House," by Charles
Edward Hooper, and "Europe on
Two Dollars a Day," by Esther
Brook. Lovers of music will be
delighted with the double-page
contribution "Fragrance," a new
son by Victor Herbert. Dr. Edward Everett Hale, who writes an
editorial page each month, tells
about a memorable visit to Mount

An Expensive Accident.
An expensive smash-up occurred
in the engine room of the Vancouver Breweries, Ltd.. on Sunday
morning. Fred Thompson,; the
fireman, took upon himself the task
of Starting up the machinery, The
big fl>- Wheel made a rcvOlutibn Or
two, then snapped into a number of pieces, and broke a pipe
which allowed the ammortia-gas to
escape. Thompson became unconscious from the fumes of the ammonia. The engineer, George
Wyatt, hearing the noise of the
breaking down of the machinery,
rushed in anil rescued Thompson,
then, wrapping a wet towel about
his face, shut off the escaping ammonia. The big fly-wheel weighed
several tons and the machinery was
practically new. The cost will be
m the neighborhood of $5,000.
The old plaht is now beihg used
by the brewery until new machin*
ery can be installed.

Familiarity with  Dirt and  Darkness.
How little some employers realize
what they are doing when they compel employees to work in dark, dingy
factories, rooms, and basements ! The
mind is omnivorous. It feeds upon
and is affected by everything in its
environment. If it cannot get bright
and cheerful pictures, it feeds upon
the dark and gloomy. We are constantly absorbing the qualities of our
environment. They affect seriously,
though unconsciously, the qualify of
our whole 'ives.
In these employers' homes we find
flowers and plants in the light, sunny
windows, or in conservatories; it
would be fatal to put them in dark
rooms, for they live largely upon the
sunlight. When human flowers and
plants are put into dark dingy rooms,
why wonder that they are not healthy,
■ vigorous, strong,  and bright ?
It is as impossible for a mind to
be absolutely normal and healthy in
dark, gloomy surroundings as it is
to raise American Beauty roses in a
dungeon. The mind is optimistic or
pessimistic, according to the brightness and cheerfulness, or the darkness and the gloom, in its environment. No mind can be normal which
is not optimistic, and optimism is
born of brightness, of beauty and joy.
Did you never contrast the children who were brought up in the
crowded, sunless tenements, children,
who, perhaps, have never listened to
any refined conversation or seen any
really cultured people, who are familiar with vulgarity and profanity,
who perhaps have never gotten a
glimpse of the beautiful country, or
have never seen a beautiful picture,
or anything else that is really lovely,
with children who were brought up
in an environmena of beauty and attractiveness, who lived amidst flowers and beautiful works of art, who
have heard only refined language and
lived wit- cultured people ?—0. S.

A Single  Brain.
A prominent lawyer who formerly
-practiced at the bar of Kansas City
tells of a funny incident in a court
"there during a trial in which a certain young doctor was called as a
Counsel for the other side, in cross-
' examining the youthful medico, gave
utterance to several sarcastic remarks
tending to throw    doubt    upon    the
ability of so young a man.
One of the questions was: "You
are entirely familiar with the symptoms of concussion of the brain ?"
"I am."
"Then," continued the cross-examiner, "suppose my learned friend, Mr.
Taylor, and myself were to bang our
heads together, should we get concussion of the brain ?"
"'Your learned friend, Mr. Taylor,
might," suggested the young physician.—Rochester Herald.

Dog Steals Horse.
Because "Muggs," an English cosc'i
dog, owned by J. N. i>. Reeves, objects so persistently to the sale of a
horse by his master, the former owner is endeavoring to repurchase the
hoise, that it and tha uog; w.iich hav„
been inseparable companions for several years, may spend the remainder
of their lives as chums.
The horse was sold to Brock Smith,
of East Columbus, and when the new
purchaser attempted to lead the animal from the Reeves* barnyard, the
dog held the halter rein with his
teeth, nor would he release it until
forced to do so by his master. By
his pathetic, mute appeals he evinced
his desire to have his equine friend
Recently the purchaser of the horse
drove him back here and hitched him
to a rack while he entered a store.
"Muggs" appeared at the animal's
side, apd grabbing the halter-rein between his teeth, chewed it in two,
thus releasing his erstwhile companion. The two proceeded to "their old
home together.—Chicago Inter-Ocean.

Old   Bailey   Disappears.
London.—The new central criminal
court erected on the site of the historic old Newgate prison, commonly
known as Old Bailey, was opened by
King Edward, who was accompanied
by Queen Alexandra.
The function was a state affair. The
streets traversed by the royal procession were decorated with bunting and
lined by large crowds. The lord
mayor and the sheriffs in their robes
of state met their majesties at Temple Bar, where tne lord mayor presented the king with the city sword.
In a pavilion in front of the
new session house an address
was presented to the king,
who replied and declared the building
-psn. Their majesties subsequently
inspected the interior of the courthouse, the corner stone of which was
laid in 1902. The king, in reply to
the address, referred to the "Barbarous Penal Code" adlninistered
within the walls of the old building
and said he rejoiced at the fact that
this was being gradually replaced in the progress towards higher civilizatios by; laws breathing a
more human spirit aiming at the nobler purpose of reforming criminals,
by showing mercy to flrst offenders,
which often proves the means or reshaping their lives.
Hnd Constipation—Strong Letter In Recommendation of
By  Dr. Williams'  Pink    Pills    After
Doctors Treatment Had Failed.
Skin trouble indicates that the
blood is in a poisoned state. It is
the poison in the blood that causes
blotches, pimples, eczema, boils,
salt-rheum or bad complexion. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills make rich, red
blood that banishes these troubles.
Mrs. Osborne, wife of Andrew Osborne, clerk of the Township of Kennebec, Frontenac County, Ont.,
writes: "I cannot speak too highly
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for they
did for me what doctors failed to do.
Some years ago I was attacked by
salt rheum in the hands, caused, by a
run down condition of my blood. I
endured the tortures of this terrible
disease for some time, and only those
who have been similarly afflicted can
realize my suffering. At times my
hands were so bad that I could not
comb my hair, I was helpless. I
consulted a doctor but his treatment
failed to benefit me—my case seemed
incurable. While in this condition I
read of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and
decided to give them a trial. Soon
I began to improve and by the time
I had taken about a dozen boxes I
was completely cured and I have not
since had the slightest return of the
trouble. I can heartily recommend
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to all similar sufferers."
You can't cure eczema, salt rheum
and skin eruptions with salves and
outward applications. These troubles are rooted in the blood and can
only be cured through the rjch, red
blood Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually make. This simple medical
fact should be known to everyone.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills not only
cure skin diseases, but all other
troubles caused by bad blood, such
as anaemia, with its I headaches, side-
aches and backaches, heart palpitation, indigestion, rheumatism, neuralgia, St. Vitus dance and the special ailments that afflict so many
women and growing girls. You can
get these pills from your medicine
dealer or by mail at SO cents a box
or six boxes for $2.50 from The Dr.

With the liver in healthful, active
condition there is, no trouble from
constipation, and this accounts for
the success of Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills as a positive cure for
sluggish action of the bowels.
Mrs. R. Lockley Jones, Mount
Tolmie, B.C., writes:
"I Jiave used Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills for some years and always have them in the house. They
are the only pills that relieve me from
constipation and liver troubles, and
I say this after having tried nearly
all kinds without benefit. I would
not be without them and have recommended them to my friends, many of
whom can bear testimony to their
great value in liver and kidney complaints. I am satisfied that Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills are unequalled as a family medicine."
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills succeed  where  mere  kidney    medicines
fail because they act promptly and
directly on the liver, take the work
off the kidneys, and then by their
invigorating action on the kidneys
restore them to health ond vigor.
Because of the intimate and sympathetic relation of the liver and kidneys it is useless to treat them independently of one another. This
fact was in the mind of t)r. Chase
when he prepared the formula of his
celebrated Kidney-Liver Pills and the
phenomenal success of thiB great medicine has proven his wisdom.
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills positively cure liver complaint, biliousness, constipation, backache and kidney disease. One pill a dose, 25
cents a box, at nil dealers or Edmanson, Bates & Co., Toronto. To
protect you against imitations the
portrait and signature of Dr. A. W.
Chase, the famous _ receipt book author, are on every box of his medicines.

young man said: "Not any change,

"All right," and opening the bag,

LIKE everything else, handwork Is
at a premium for decorating
baby sllpB and the slips for the
baby pillows which grown-ups
nnd so altogether satisfactory for a
thousand and one uses. The prettiest
slips of all of them are embroidered
more or less elaborately, though Invariably only on one side, and the saving,
if you cnn do that embroidering yourself, Is almost the whole cost.
Such a pillow slip us tne one for which
the pattern ls given costs *.s or 19 to
buy, yet 50 cents will hi..ply cover the*
cost of making. And the slip, when
llnished, la a handsome enough gift for
the baby of your deareBt friend—for
that friend herself, If she altects a little
extra pillow f r. her bed.
Linen is the best material to make
sucn a slip, uf—linen' of a close, ilrm
weave, as line as handkerchief linen,
but without the sheer, couweuuy quality
which is the hallmark of the prettiest
sort of handkerchief; and wnlch is,
instead, so Arm that it Is hard tu draw
threads ln it.
lf the slip is to fit a pillow of a certain size, take the measurement uf the
pillow and adapt the design tu lt. This
is much less uithcult tu du than it
seemB, for the only part that minis
adapting is the scallup about tiu edge,
the line Inside marked at a regular distance from lt and the design itself
placed where lt ia moBt effective.
If no particular sir.e Is indicated, the
usual size ia twenty-one Inches lung by
sixteen and a half wide.
Make the luwer slue in two pieces,
the shorter end abuut live Inches deep,
both ends where they meet and lap finished with half-inch hems, upon which
buttons and buttonholes are placed.
After the embroidery is done upon the
upper side, baste upper and lower sides
together and mark tne scallup plainly.
Either raj the scallop lightly or embroider it over a thread.
The line inside the scallop should be
briar stitched with tine embroidery oot-
tun—either the duuble or single briar-
stitching may be used, although the
duuble adds even mure of the dainty
touch than does the single. But, whichever you do, take as tiny stitches as
yuu can, taking them thruugh both
thicknesses, su that the strain of tbe
pillow comes there instead of upon the
t scallop.
To apply the design, lay Impression
paper uver the linen, the design upon
that, and gu over the lines with a
hard pencil. Fill out the scallop, or
reverse the pattern, tracing over the
scallop again to All out the other aide.
A very pretty slip may be mude with
only the larger part of the design embroidered, or one still more effective
than the design shown by repeating
the smaller motif, marked A, in the
oppoalte corner.
Fad the embroidery, and do It ln
■olid work, working the leaves from
tbe edges to the centre wltb the
stitches slanting toward the item.
Or, If you want to make a slip with
less work on it than the one shown,
omit the flower design, and make it
with only the scallop and the briar-
The same design may be applied to
the pretty little cases made to tuck
nightgowns in, which are laid upon
the bed, against bolster or leaning
against the pillows. Twelve by alx-
teen and a half inches is the beat size
for these.
Centrepiece Holders
SOME one has Invented a pretty
treatment of the broomstick or the
pasteboard mailing tube which so
many women have found the most satisfactory thing to wind centrepieces and
dollies around when they have Just been
done up.
A twenty-flve Inch square of flowered
dimity Is edged with narrow lace, or
bound witn wash ribbon or with one of
the many pretty wash braids, ahd attached to the tube, which has been
covered with cotton batting in which
sachet, powder has been freely sprinkled,
and then with the material.
The dollies are laid flat upon the
square, as soon as they have thoroughly
aired after Ironing, and are loosely rolled around the tube, both dollies and
outer covering kept from unrolling by
Inch-wide ribbons attached, one !n the
middle of the roll and one on each side
near the end.
Spotless Laundering of
Summer Clothes
SUMMER clothes, now that white ls
so universally worn, are apt to be
a trial to the soul of the womun
who wishes them a spotless, glistening white.
This is harder to achive than is usually bel.cved. Luundresses, even the
best of them, are apt to be careless ul
little minus, ull uf which are painfully
evident un a surfuce ul siurcneu linen.
Bleuctiiiiu on tue grass every tew
weeks is eBsential tu snowy whiteness, but the good effect ls quite
marred if unsightly green sputs are
allowed to remain. After being removed from tlie lawn, all gurm.ius
should be carefully Inspected, anu a,l
' such blemishes washed out
Then the hanging of clothes on a
line in the open air undoubtedly improves -their appearance—If the lino
Is clean. Too often, alas' this ls not
the case, and a skirt will show an
ugly line uf soil in consequence.
The greatest care must be taken of
a clothesline. It should be always
wiped free of dust before being used,
and must never be 'eft out of doors
when not ln use, but must be carefully dried and put away. The rope
line ls better, most laundresses think,
tnan one of wire, as danger of rust
Ib evident even when lt is guaranteed
Irons also must be kept absolutely
clean and shiny, and the cover on
the Ironing table should be frequently renewed.
Attention to these llttle particulars
would prevent many a dress being
thrown back In the wa«h wttho'ut
being worn—a necessity provoking alike
to mistress and  laundress.
Cleaning Picture Frames.
DON'T attempt to clean picture frames

slightly sway from the frame.
Any sort of cleaning,-except tbe most
casual dusting, Is bound to make the
gold scale off in an unsightly fashion.

me that she had secured the work for

weeks, and her visit has left me not
exalted over my success, but thoroughly depressed and at war with mysolf
and heaven and earth."
"There Is such a difference In the way
nice things are done by different people," remarked the friend to whom she-
was speaking, thoughtfully, "and it
lan't always suavity or apparent gra-

French." But no one paid any attention to him, for the Poet was speaking.
"What I want," said he, "ls a lot ot
rhymes for rhymeless English words.
Look at the words for which there Ib no
rhyme: 'Orange,' and 'month,' ana.
'window' and 'scissors'—all without any
exactly corresponding words. And alt
common words, too, and easily adaptable. There are many others of them—
words I can't remember now, and shalt
not untU I get them into a poem and
have to change a verse to accommodate
"Well," said the Philologist, "you people may say what you like about new
words. I have trouble .enough attending lo the spelling and pronunciation ot
the. old ones. Some day you fellows
come over to my house, and I'll show
you my list of 600 words in perfectly
good use that once were hopeless slang.
That — the way - languages are recruited."
II T\° you *ee thls B'aBsT" said thei
Ap    \J   doctor, as he held up to the
light a small graduated medicine glass. "This indicates exactly
the correct measure to use for spoonfuls and tablespoonfuls. It cannot possibly make a mistake. And yet many
persons', rather than use these correct
and Inexpensive devices, trust to the-
varying shapes and sizes of the real
spoons. This custom belongs with tallow candles and bootjacks.
"The styles ln silverware are always
changing, too. A short time ago a
woman came to me to ask why the
medicine I had ordered had no effect
on her. She had been ordered a soup-
spoonful every hour—one of the new
round soupspoons, you know. She told
me that she had been using two tablespoonfuls, as sbe thought the dlrso.
tlons meant a soup lain.-. iuu uu. un-
aglne how serious this might have become had the medicine been a poison.
And not only doctors recommend these
glasses. Some day every woman will
have something very like them In her
kitchen, and inatead of trusting ta
memory or fate, she will measure out
Ingredients In theso perfectly Infallible and perfectly hygienic glasses.
But that, I am afraid," and the doctor
sighed, "will not be until the millennium."
THE "art needlework" counter la
always so crowded that you have
a splendid opportunity to moralize before the goddess of the counter deigns to wait upon you.
Beside you is a woman who Is being
persuaded into all sorts of extravagance. A livid print of an Indian head'
on a sofa cushion square ls being
trimmed by the saleswoman. Gleaming glass beads at 18 cents a dozen
are lavishly distributed around the
war chief's neck—no particular color
scheme observed, of course—and five
dozen are not too few for a necklace.
Next, the embroidery silk Is dealt
out at the rate of two skeins to every
tint and shade that the eagle eye of
the salesperson can spy. Twenty-two
skeins are charged up to the deluded
woman, who certainly would be the
better for a new stock and gloves,
which she probably "can't afford."
We may think of the comfort some
one Is going to enjoy who rests his
tired head upon five dozen glass beads
In brass settings!
All down tho counter the same performance la being carried to the
purses' limit, while these same women
brushed past a table on which some
two-toned effects and tapestry pillow
covers were displayed at the reduced
prices of 50 cents and fl. Only the
addition of a cord ls needed to make
of either of these a pillow *l god
looks and comttr*.
