Or, The Love Story of Charles Brandon and Mary Tudor, the King's Sister, and
Happening In the Reign of His August Majesty King Henry the Eighth
Rewritten t_nd Rendered Into Modern Engliih From  Sir Edwin
CtBkjttoden'a Memoir
Copyright, 1838 and 1901, by (lie J.ou'eu-JMeri'flt Company
"1 trust tne King Will see ui to mvor
him, aiid I hopo that jou will speak a
word in his behalf should tbe opportunity occur."
"What, ln the name of heaven, havo
we to give him?" cried Mary Impatiently, for sbe kept an eye on things
political, even If sho were only a girl.
"The king hns given away everything
that can be given already, and now
that the war Is over und men nro coming borne Uierc arc hundreds waiting
for more. My father's great treasure ls
squandered, to say nothing of tho money collected from Enipson, Dudley und
the other commissioners. There is nothing to givo unless lt be the titles und
estate of the Into Duko of Suffolk.
I'orhnps the king will givo these to
your paragon if you will paint bim ln
ns fair a light ns you have drawn blm
for me'." Then, throwing back ber
head, with a laugh, "Ask blm."
"It would be none too much for his
deserts," I replied, falling In wltb her
"Wo will so nrrange lt, then," went
on Mary banterlngly. "Captain Brandon no longer, but Charles Brandon,
duke of Suffolk. How sounds it, Master Caskoden?"
"Sweet In my ears," I replied.
"I really believe you would have the
king's crown for him, you absurd man,
if you could get It. We must have so
interesting a person nt court. I shall
nt least see that be ls presented to tbe
queen at once. I wonder If be dunces.
I suppose not. He hns probably been
too busy cutting and thrusting." And
she laughed ngaln at her own pleasantry.
When the mirth began to gather ln
her face and the dimples came responsive to her smiles, when she threw
back her perfectly poised head, stretching her BOft, white throat, so full nnd
round nnd beautiful, half closing her
big brown eyes till they shone again
from benenth the shade of those long,
black, sweeping lashes; when her red
lips parted, showing ber teeth of pearl,
ond sbe gave tbe little clap of her
hands, a sort of climax to tbe soft low,
rippling laugh, she made a picture of
such exquisite loveliness tbat it is no
wonder men were fools nbout her nnd
caught love ns one catches a contagion.
I bnd It once, as you already know, and
hnd recovered. All that prevented a
dally relapse was my fair, sweet antidote, Jane, whose Image rested ln my
heart, a lasting safeguard.
"I wonder If your prodigy plays
cards—tbat Is, such as we ladies play?"
asked Mary. "You say he has lived
much ln France, where tbe game was
Invented, but I have no doubt he
would scorn to waste his time at so
frivolous a pursuit when he might be
slaughtering urinies single banded aud
"I do not know ns to his dancing
and card playing, but I dare venture
a wager be docs both," I replied, not
liking her tone of sarcasm. She bnd
yet to learn who Brandon was.
"I   will   hazard   ten   crowns,"   snld
Mary quickly,  for she loved a wager
nnd was a born gambler.
"Taken," said I.
"We will try hiin on both tomorrow
night ln my drawing room," she continued. "You bring him up, but tell
no one. I will have Jane there with
her lute, which will not frighten you
nway I know, amd we will try bis step.
I will hnve cards, too, and we shall see
what he can do nt triumph. Just we
four, no one else nt nil. You nnd Jnne,
the new Duke of Suffolk nnd I. Ob,
I cnn linrdly wait!" And she fnlrly
danced with joyous anticipation.
The thing bnd enough irregularity
to give It zest, for while Mnry oftcD
had a few yoipig people In her drnwinp
room, the companies were never s<
small ns two couples only, nnd the
klng nnd queen, to mnke up for grenter
faults, were wonderful sticklers In the
matter of little proprieties.
The ten crown wngor, too, gave spice
to It, but to do her Justice sbe cared
very little for that. Tbo princess
loved gambling purely for gambling
sake, nnd with her the next best thing
to winning was losing.
When I went to my room that night,
I awakened Brandon and told him of
tlie distinguished honor that awaited
"Well, I'll be"— But he did not sny
what be would "be." He nlwnys halted before nn oath, unless nngry, which
was seldom, but then bewnrc. He
hnd leurned to swear In Tlnnders.
"How she did fly at mc the other
morning! I never wns moro Biirprlsed
In ull my life. I'or once I wns nlmost
caught with my guard down nnd did
not know how to pnrry the thrust.
I mumbled over some sort of n Inme
retaliation nnd beat a retreat. It was
so unjust and uncalled for that It
mnde me angry. But she wns so gracious tn her amends tbnt I wns nlmost
glad lt happened. 1 like a woman
who can be ns savage as the very
devil wben It pleases her. She usually
hns In store nn assortment of possibilities for tbe other extreme."
"She told me of your encounter," I
returned, "but snid she bad come off
second best, and seemed to think her
overthrow a huge Joke."
"The man who learns to know wbat
a woman thinks and feels will hnve a
great deal of valuable information," he
replied, and then turned over for sleep,
greatly pleased that one woman
thought as sho did.
I was not sure he would be so highly
flattered if be knew tbnt he hnd been
invited to settle a wager and to help
Mary to a littlo sport
As to the former, I had an Interest
there myself, although I dared not settle tho question by asking Brandon lf
he played curds and danced, nnd, ns to
the matter of Mary's sport I felt thero
was but little If any danger of her
having too much of lt at bis expense,
Brandon being well able to care for
himself ln that respect I
The next evening-at tbo appointed
time we wended our way by an unfve-
qiiented route nntl presented ourselves
as secretly as possible at the drawing
room of tlio princess.
The door was opened by Lady jane,
nnd we met the two girls nlmost at tbe
threshold. I bnd told Brandon of tho
bantering conversation about tho title
nnd estates of the late Duke of Suffolk,
and be had laughed over lt In the best
of humor. If quick to rotaliato for nn
Intentional offense, bo was not thin
Bliliined at a piece of pleasantry, ond
bad none of that stiff, sensitive dignity
bo troublesome to oneself and friends.
Now, Jane nnd Mnry were nlways
bantering mo because I wub short nnd
Inclined to bo, in fnct, round, but I
did not cure. It made them laugh, and
their lnughlng wns so contnglous lt
made mo laugh, too, nnd we nil en-
Joyed lt. I would givo n pound Bterllug
nny time for u good lnugh, nnd tbnt, I
tblnk, Is why I hnve ulways been—
So, upon entering, I snld:
"His gruco tbo Duke ot Suffolk, ladles."
Tbey each mndo a sweeping courtesy, with bnnd on breast, nnd gravely
saluted hlin:
"Your grace, good even."
Brandon'* bow wns ns deep and
graceful, If thnt wero possible, aa
theirs, nnd when he moved on Into the
room It was witb a little halt in his
step and n big blowing out of tbe
cheeks ln ludicrous imitation of bis
late Inmented predecessor tbnt sent tbe
girls into peals of soft laughter and put
us all at our ease Immediately.
Ah, wbat a thing lt is to look back
upon—that time of life when one finds
his heaven in a rendy lnugh!
"Be seated, nil," said tbe princess.
"This ls to be without ceremony and
only wo four. No one knows a word of
lt. Did you tell any one, Sir Edwin?"
"Perish the tbougbt!" 1 exclaimed.
She turned ber face toward Brandon.
"But I know you did not. I've beard
how discreet you wero nbout nnother
mntter. Well, no one knows It then,
and wo cnn hnve a famous evening.
You did not expect this, Mnster Brandon, nfter my reception of you the other morning? Were you not surprised
when Sir Edwin told you?"
"I think I cnn safely say tbnt I was
prepared not to be surprised at anything your highness might graciously
conclude to do—nfter my first experience," he nnswered, smiling.
"Indeed?" returned Mary, with elevated eyebrows und n rising inflection
on the Inst syllable of tbe word. It
was now her turn for n little surprise.
"Well, we'll try to find some way to
surprise you one of theso days." Aud
tbe time came when sbe was full of
surprises for blm. Mnry continued:
"But let us not tnlk nbout tbe other
dny. Of wbnt use nre 'other dnys,' any-
wny ? Before tbe evening is over, Master Brandon, we want you to give us
nnother sermon." And sbe laughed, setting off three other laughs ns henrty
nnd sincere ns if sbe bnd uttered tbe
rarest witticism on earth.
The princess bad told Jnne nnd Jnne
bnd told me of the "Sermon ln the
Park," as Mary called lt.
"Jnne needs lt as much as I," snld
the princess.
"I enn't believe that," responded
Brandon, looking nt June with n softening glance quite too ndiulriug nnd
commendutory to suit me, for I wus a
Jealous little devil.
The eyebrows went up ngnin.
"Ob, you think she doesn't? Well, In
truth, Mnster Brandon, there Is one
falling that cunnot be lnld nt your door
—you nre no (bitterer." I'or answer
Brandon lnughcd, nnd that gave us the
cue, and nwny wo went lu a rippling
chorus, all about nothing. Some persons mny cnll our laughter foolish, but
there nre others who consider It tho
height of nil wisdom. St. George! I'd
give my Garter for just one other lnugh
line Hint, lor Just one other hour of
youth's dancing blood and glowing soul
Warmth, of sweet, unconscious, happy
heart boat and pnrudise creating Joy
In everything!
After n few minutes of gny converse-
lion, In which we nil joined, Mnry nsked: "What shnll we do? Will one of
you suggest something?"
June nnt there looking so demure you
would hnve thought mischief could not
live within a league of her, but those
very demure girls nre nearly alwnys
dnngcrniis. She snld, oh, so Innocently:
"Would you like to dnnce? If bo, I
will play." And she reached for her
lute, which wns by her side.
"Yes, thnt wjll be delightful. Mnster Brandon, will you dance with mo?"
asked the princess, with a saucy littlo
lnugh, her invitation meaning so much
moro to threo of us than to Brandon.
Jane and I joined In the laugh, and
when Mary chipped her bands that sot
Brandon off, too, for bo thought lt tho
qunlntcst, prettiest littlo gesture ln the
world nud wns all unconscious that our
laugh wns at bis expense.
Brandon did not answer Mnry's Invitation—the fit of laughter bad probably
put lt out of bis mind—so she, evidently
anxious to win or lose her wager at
once, ngnin asked him lf be danced.
"Oh, pardon me! Of courso! Thank
you!" And he was on his feet bcBlde
her chnlr In an instant ready for the
dance. This time tbe girl's lnugh,
though equally merry, had nnother
tone, for sbe knew she bnd lost.
Out they stepped upon tho polished
floor, he holding her bnnd lu his, awaiting the pause in the music to '.ike the
step. I Bhall never forget the sight of
those two standing there together—
Mary, dark eyed nnd glowing; Brandon,
almost rosy, with eyes tbat held the
color of a dark spring sky and a wealth
of flowing curls crowning his six feet
of perfect manhood, strong and vigorous as a young Hon. Mary, full of
bentity curves nnd graces, a veritable,
Venus In ber teens, and Brandon, an i
Apollo, with a touch of Hercules, wero
a complement each to tbe otber that
would surely make a perfect one.
When   tba   music   started.- oft thev
went neel and toe, bow and courtesy,
a step forward and a step back, in perfect time and rhythm—a poem of human motion. Could Brandon dance?
The princess had her answer in the
first ten steps. Notblng could be moro
graceful than Brandon's dancing unless lt were Mnry's. Her slightest
movement was grace itself. When she
would throw herself bnckward In
thrusting out ber toe and then swing
forward with her head a little to one
side, her uplifted arm undulating like
the white neck of a swan—for ber
sleeve, whlcb was silt to the shoulder,
fell back and left it hare—she was a
sight worth a long Journey to see. And
wben she looked up to Brandon with a
laugh In her brown eyes and a curving
smile Just parting her full, red lips
thnt a man would give his very luck to
- bnt t hnd better stop.
"Was there ever a goodlier couple?"
I asked Jane, by whose Bide I sat
"Never," she responded as she played,
and, strange to sny, I was Jealous because she agreed with mo. I was jealous because I feared it was Brandon's
benuty to which sho referred. That I
thought would nnturally appeal to her.
Und ha been less handsome I should
perhaps bave thought nothing of it
but I knew what my feelings were toward Mary, aud I Judged, or ratber
misjudged, .lane by myself. I supposed sho would think of Brandon as
I could not help thinking of Mary.
Was anything in heaven or earth ever
so beautiful as that royal creature
dancing there, daintily holding up her
skirts with thumb and first finger, Just
far enough to show a distracting little
foot and ankle and make one wish be
bnd been born a sheep rather thnn a
sentient man who bnd to live without
Mary Tudor? Yet, strange as lt may
seem, I was really and wholly ln love
wl.h Jane. In fact, I loved no one but
Jane, and my feeling of Intense admiration for Mary was but a part of
man's composite Inconstancy.
A woman—God bless her!—lf she really loves a man, bas no thought of any
other—one at a time Is all sufficient—
but a man may love one woman with
the warmth of a simoom and at tbe
same Ume feel like a good, healtby
soutb wind toward a dozen* others.
Tbat ls the difference between a man
nnd a woman—the difference between
tbe good and the bad. One average
woman has enough goodness in ber to
supply an army of men.
Mary and Brandon went on dancing
long after Jane was tired, of playing.
It was plain to see thnt the girl wns
thoroughly enjoying lt They kept up
a running fire of small talk and laughed and smiled and bowed and courte-
sled, all in perfect time and grace.
It ls more difficult than you may
think, lf you have never tried, to keep
up a conversation and dance La Halliard nt the same time—one is apt to
balk tbe other. Bnt Brandon's dancing
wns as easy to him as walking, and, although so small a matter, I could see it
raised him vastly ln the estimation of
both girls.
"Do you play triumph?" I heard Mary ask ln the midst of the dancing.
"Oh, yes," replied Brandon, much to
my delight as the princess threw a
mischievous, knowing glance over her
shoulder to see if I had heard. She at
once saw I had, and this, of course,
settled the wager.
"And," continued Brandon, "I nlso
play the new game, honor and ruff,
which ls more Interesting than triumph."
"Oh, do you?" cried Mary. "That
will more than compensate for the loss
of my 10 crowns. Let us sit down at
once. I have been wishing to lenrn,
but no one here seems to know lt. lu
France, they say, lt is the only game.
I suppose there is where you learned
It Perhaps you know their new dances
too.  I bave beard they are delightful."
"Yes, I know them," replied Brandon.
"Why. you are a perfect treasure!
-ciieu me at onco!   How, now, master
of the dance? Here is your friend outdoing you iu your own line."
"I am glad to hear lt," I returned.
"If Lady Jane will kindly play somo
lively air written in the time of 'The
Sailor Lass,' I will teach the Lady Mary the new dance," said Brandon.
Jane threw one plump little knee over
the other and struck up "Tbe Sailor
Lnss." After she hnd ndjustcd the
playing to Brandon's suggestion he
stepped deliberately in front of Mary
and, taking her right hand in his left,
encircled her waist with his right nrm.
The girl wns startled nt first and drew
awny. This nettled Brandon a little,
and he showed it plainly.
"I thought you wished me to tench
you the new dance," he said.
"I do, bnt—but I did not know lt was
danced that way," she replied, with a
fluttering little laugh, looking up Into
his face with a hnlf shy, hnlf upologot-
ic mnnner and then dropping her lashes
before his gaze.
"Oh, well!" said Brandon, with a
Frenchman's shru- of the shoulders,
and then moved off .is lf about to leave
tho floor.
"But Is that really tbo way you —
thoy dnnce it—with your—their nrm
around my—a lady's waist?"

How a Trader's Ingenuity Saved Himself and Comrade,
The fur trader sat on the steamer
wharf at Quebec, leaning back on a
packing box. For a moment he looked
down at the flrst sheet of ice that had
skimmed the broad St. Lawrence; then
he said: "That Ice there is about as
thick us lt was the Ume I got caught
on my first trip north Into the barrens.
"Another fellow by the name of Andrew Damson and myself had been
tradlne with Indians ln British Columbia. We broke camp at the end of the
season, and started to the nearest settlement, which was ten miles south of
us, with a big lake lying between. We
found the ice had all gone out, and we
couldn't cross on sledges, as we did
when we came up. To go round tho
iuKe meant a mean Journey on account
of the marshes. As our provisions
were used up and we had already sent
our pelts out, there didn't snem to bs
any reason why we shouldn't paddle Urn
six miles across. Our outfit was light,
and wo figured we could reach the other Bide before dark.
"Three or four Indians, who were
coming ln with skins, saw as we wore
setting out, and yelled something to
us about the ice. Later on, I wished
I'd listened  to  them.
"We got along well till about ths
middle of tho afternoon, when tho wind
whirled around Into the north, and II
got cold within ten minutes. It began
to snow, too, flrst in little spits and
then thicker and thicker, until ws
couldn't aoo a oanOo'B length ahead ol
"There was only one thing to do, and
that was to spread out the blankets
into a kind of awning, and curl up to
sleep and wait for tho morning, when
we could see our way.
"Damson woke me at daylight, and 1
looked out The fall of snow had boen
light Ws were about a hundred yards
from the shore, and I could see that
the storm had blown over quickly. But
on every side the lake was covered
with Ice, not thick enough to hold a
man and not thin enough for a boat to
push through.
" 'Damson,' said I, looking sober,
'we'd be In a bad way lf this Ice
shouldn't get strong enough to walk on,
or elso melt enough so we could paddle. There Isn't anything left but a
half can of beans, and this canoe ls
"The hours went by. We ate nearly
all our provisions, and slept over the
next night pretty r.nxlous, and cold nnd
hungry, and trying to keep out of the
water that was gradually rising in the
canoe. The next morning the ice waa
still too strong to break through, and
yet lt was too weak to hold us.
"Then Andy hit upon a plan. He
flrst tors out two of the braces that
ran from side to side of the canoe.
'"What are you going to do?' says 1
" Tm going to build an Ice raft,' says
he, and he lashed the braces across the
end of the paddles. Then he tore pieces
of the birch bark out of the sides of the
canoe, fastened them across between
the paddles, and finally had a patchwork raft nearly six feet long and four
feet broad. 'There,' said he, 'that will
spread your weight over a bigger area
of Ice, and you can He down on lt and
push with your toes. You go flrst It
will hold you all right, but It won't
hold both of us.'
'"How shall I send the raft back to
you?' said X.
"'I've already thought of that,' said
he. 'Take this ball of cord we used
for tying up the skins. I'll tie this on
to the raft here. If anything happens
to you I may be able to pull you out,
and If you get there all right I can
haul the raft back.'
"The raft would Just barely hold me
up, and lt was ticklish work pushing
my way to shore, spread out on my
stomach on the raft; but I accomplished lt at last
"Then he pulled the raft back to ths
canoe, and for a moment I couldn't
see what he was doing with the cord.
But all of a sudden he stood up and
threw something toward me. It fell
about half-way between us, but glanced
and slid along the Ice almost to my
feet. It was his heavy hunting knife
with the cord tied on to lt
"'Haul away!' said he, when he
had spread himself out on the raft
'Easy! etsyl' and atl ast I managed to
pull him to shore. I never felt anything better than tho solid ground under my feet If lt hadn't been for Andy's Ingenuity, lt would have been starvation, drowning or freezing for both
of us."

Cops/Tight, WW, by Ethel Banington
Dusk was clouding the landscape as
Noah Sterling, powerfully built, with
blue eyes ln contrast to his gray hairs,
stepped on the porch. He leaned against
the framework of the door and smoked
his pipe, apparently oblivious to the
voices floating out from the kitchen.
Yet he beard, for his brows lowered
and met above his eyes, and his teeth
shut sharply on the brier's stem.
"I'll enter no family unwelcomed.

rocks wear away by percolation of the

"You are nil lie has In tbe world. I'll
not come between you"—
Noah Sterling glanced Into the dim
room. He could see Bess fighting
against ber love and tbe stalwart son
of the mill owner as he held her hands.
Noiselessly he stepped from the porch
to the coolness cf tbe little gnrden. It
was quite dark when he returned, but
no light greeted him from the open
door, but a low sob broke the stillness
and guided him to tbe girl's side. She
sat by the table, ber head buried ln her
arms, her slight frame trembling with
emotion.  Noah watched her silently.
"Oh, Daddy Noah, my heart ls broken"— The words wero scarcely audible. Sterling sat down heavily, resting
his Work worn hand on her arm.
"You sent him away bravely. Now
you cry for him."
Bess cleared her voice. There was a
little laugh of self pity in her tone as
she spoke.
"That's the woman of lt Yet It's
you who spoiled mc. When did I ask
for aught—and you not give it to me?

"He's all the world"— Sterling withdrew his band abruptly. Impetuously
Bess flung ber arms about his neck.
"Not that I love you less, dear, or ever
could, but you loved my mother—you
nnderstand—you must—you are all that
ls left to me now."
"Understand! Sure I understand."
Soothing her, be drew her to his knee
and held ber ln his arms, as ba had
so often doue as a child. Comforted,
she prepared to retire.
"Are you not goiug to bed?" she questioned, her candle illuminating her
heavy eyes.
"Presently, child."
Yet he hnd scarcely stirred when the
gray dawn showed In the east; then
he rose stiffly, determination In bis
face. "I've Just got to do lt I swore
I never would, but I will."
At noon next dny Nonh Sterling entered the office. Thnddeus Giles, the
boss, wns writing when the foremsn
appeared, but be nodded kindly.
"Sit down, Nonh. I'll bo through In

his cap ln bis band.
"Glad to seo you, old man. Anything specinl that you dropped In for?"
asked Giles, pushing bis papers from
him nnd swinging nround iu bis chnlr.
"I wanted purtlculur to seo you," began Sterling uncertnluly. "It's nbout

"Stop, Noah," broke ln the mill owner sharply. "Some things I allow no
Interference ln. It's none of your business anyhow."
"Hold bard. I'm one of your hands-
have been for years—yet we were kids
together, you, Tlm, and me. Was there
ever a scrape that we didn't share?"
"We were sure enough pnls." The
boss' eyes twinkled at sundry remembrances.
"When Tlm died—you don't recollect
—you were planning your own big deal.
But I knew. There was a baby, Thadd.
I ain't never told you. But the night
Tim went I sat with him. He worried
awful about that baby. Seemed as If
he just couldn't die till I set his mind

"I don't understand whnt you nre

"Bess Ib Tim's daughter—Tlm and

"Bessie Fields that wns?"
"Tbe same.   You begin to see now,"
"Come, Noah, this is ridiculous! Be

every line tbe Inflexibility that had

"I would have given you a share ln

Giles sat motionless, the dawn of comprehension ln bis strong self willed

"Seems like taking a mean advantage.
It's powerful hard to ask. But I loved

"It's a pretty stiff test" said Giles

Unappreciated Services.
Chatting across the table In an uptown restaurant two young men exchanged confidences concerning tbelr
activities ln a nearby department
store. "I can work to the limit of my
strength lf it la appreciated," snid ono
of them, "but the more one does for
the head of my department the more
he exacts, and he appreciates nothing."
The other young man subscribed to
the sentiment and added, "I put the
new boy who came a few days ago
wise to the situation and advised him
not to hustle quite so lively, for If he
ever lets up a little lt will be concluded
that be has lost Interest In his job."
An employer who overheard the conversation remarked to a friend who
was lunching with him: "That ls tbe

In 1832 nnd worked seventeen yenrs.
The employment be himself said, was
not "profitable, but permanent." Astor
warned him when he began not to talk
to any one of his wealth. The two men
became great friends. Halleck spent
months with his patron at his country
scat and became oqe of tbe trustees of
the Astor library. The poet frequently
rallied tbe old man on his wealth.
"Why, Mr. Astor," he would say, "If I
bad $200 a year and was sure of It I
would be content." The great landowner took him at his word, and in his
will, much to the amusement of bohe-
mian New York, left Halleck an annuity of $200.—Burton J. Hendrlck ln

no getting into bed. You merely lie
down on your bed, which, with Its
bedding, is so simple as to be worth
describing. The bed is a wooden
frame with a webbing laced across lt,
and each bed has a thin cotton mattress. Over this one sheet Is spread,

Managing Editor of the Reglna Leader
These sketches of Western Canadian
editors have demonstrated, lf nothing
else, that this Is a country ln which,
as Shakespeare said, "Youth must be
served." It ls essentially a country of
young men. Indeeu, in perhaps no
other country in the world can the
same be said with an equal degree of
truth. Of all the editors hitherto dealt with in this series of articles, the proportion who have attained middle age is insignificant, and the
great majority of them have been men
whoso extreme youth, when considered in conjunction with the responsible
positions they occupy, and the respect
they deservedly receive from those
who know them, gives one accustomed to always associate responsibility
with age a severe shock.
Mr. W. F. Kerr, secretary-treasurer
of the Leader Times Co., and manag
ing editor of the Reglna Leader, is a
typical instance of how western conditions encourage Industry and ability.
Three years ago he was appointed
editor of the most influential weekly
paper in the Northwest Territories,
and at that time he was only twenty-
six years of age. Eight years before
that he had been a C. P. R. telegraph
messonger boy. The wide arch between the two positions Mr. Kerr had
spanned by his own efforts and talents, favored of course, by the opportunities offered him ln the wider field
tho west afforded. The bare facts as
stated, constitute the highest authentication, both of Mr; Kerr's capacities
and abilities, and of the possibilities
of self help and self advancement possible ln western Canada.
There must be something in hereditary bias towards certain lifo callings,
for Mr. Kerr,—William Franklin Kerr
ls the full name—comes from a family of whom several members werp
newspaper men. His grandfather,
Dawson Kerr, founded one of the first
papers in Bytown, Canada West, now
the city of Ottawa. It was known as
the Ottawa Valley Advocate. Mr.
Kerr's father, Dawson Kerr, worked
on the Advooate for some years as a
compositor, it being his special duty
during the Crimean war to set the
matter pertaining to that struggle.
This was before the days of tho Atlantic cable, and there was flerco rivalry
after the arrival of a mall packet
from England to see which local paper;
could first get out the news, the fastest
compositors being always put at that
work. Another of Mr. Kerr's family,
an uncle, after whom ho was named,
was also a newspaper man, being editor of the Jackson City (Michigan)
Citizen during the American Civil war.
It was thus no doubt inevitable that
the Mr. Kerr should drift into the
world of Journalism. From his earliest
boyhood thp smell of printers' ink and
the rush and hustle of a newspaper
offico had attractions for him. While
still at school his amusement used to
be, not so much in sports, though in
out of door life few men tako a keener or mo_(e healthy Interest but ln
setting type and running a small hand
Mr. Kerr Ib a Huron boy, having
been born in Goderlch In October,
W7G. He was educated at St. Thomas public schools, i.aviiig in tho Interval been at Grand Rapids (Mich.)
and Ottawa, with his parents. After
completing school, he entered the
C. P. R. telegjaph service at Ottawa,
and for two seasons was detailed In
the House of Commons branch office,
where he naturally became acquainted
with the most prominent men ln Canadian journalism and politics. In 1898

Magum was selected b.v the management as Its editor. Mr. li-agum was
the doyen of the Otcawa PreBs gallery,
and when he begnn the selection of
the staff forj the new regime, among
others he selected was Mr. Kerr, ln
whom he had detected the promise of
higher possibilities in the faithful djB-
charge of his duttes as a telegraph
messenger. It was In October, 1898,
that Mr. Kerr joined the Free Press
staff, as the assistant and secretary
to the editor in chief. Towards the
end of his period of service with
Western Canada's great dally, he was
given several Important special assignments, one of which was to accompany tho Prince of Wales across
tho continent in his Canadian tour.
Mr. Kerr was tho youngest of the correspondents accompanying the royal
In February of 1902 the increasing
political duties of Mr. Walter Scott,
M. P. for Asslnibola West, and tho
editor of tho Reglna Leader, and his
long absence from Reglna, mado lt
necessary for him to depute his
work of managing tho paper, and, in
looking for a man to act ln his stead,
his choico foil on Mr. Kerr. In addition to his duties aB managing editor
of the Leader, Mr. Kerr is now the
secretary-treasurer of "the Leader-
Times Company, tho concern which
owns both the Reglna Leader and the
Mooso Jaw Times.
As Is well known, tho Leader ls,
with threo exceptions, tho oldest of
the Territorial papers, Its seniors being tho Saskatchewan Herald, pub-
llsed at Battleford; tlie Edmonton
Bulletin, tho paper of which Hon.
Frank Oliver is proprietor, and the
MacLeod Gazette. Tho Leader was
started by Nicholas Flood Davln nnd
the C. P. R., in reality for the purpose
booming the Reglna town site and
was subsequently purchased by Mr.
Walter Scott. Undei( his management and that of his deputy, Mr.
Kerr, it has attained a still stronger
hold on the confidence of the people
of the Territories. It ls now engaged in the erection of a new home, that
will be the most up-to-date newspaper
building in the new province of Saskatchewan, and outrival that of any
office ln Canada in a town of no greater population than Reglna. It will
consist of three stonies and a basement, and without equipment, will
cost $25,000.
As a newspaper man Mr. Kerr is ad
mitted by all to be one of the most
able ln the west. Neither in his writing nor in his personal characteristics
does he display any of that flashy
brilliancy which, especially among
journalists, often passes for talent.
His qualifications are of the solid and
enduring vaiilety, strong , common
sense, a levelheadness that no excitement can sweep off its feet, a steady
devotion to high personal and professional ideals, moderu-.on of utterance
combined with fearlessness of thought,
considerable talent ln organization
and a high degree of executive ability. -He is as yet young, and the possibilities of his future may best be
measured by the accomplishment of
his past. His friends—of whom he
has hosts, without as far as is known,
a single enemy—confidently predict
for him that he will be a figure to be
reconed with in both tho thought and
the action of the new province of
As might be gathered from his newspaper affiliations, Mr. Kerr ls a staunch
Liberal, one of the founders of the
Young Men's Liberal Clubs of the
west. He is an attracaive and forcible public speaker, and in request on

Probably there ls not one smoker la
a thousand who would not be surprised
and, in fact, incredulous if he were told
thnt tbe color of a cigar Is absolutely
no guide to Its strength. Yet such is
tbe case and a fact well known to cigar manufacturers and Importers. The
belief of smokers thnt cigars of dark
color are strong and those of a lighter
shade are milder ls, in point of fact, as
fallacious us it Is general. This is but
one of many delusions harbored by
consumers of tobacco which practical
cigar men hnve smiled at and Indulged
from time Immemorial.
A maker of Havana cigars uses but
one grade or bleud of tobacco in the
body or filler of his cigars. Exactly tbe
same stork Is used ln his conchas aa In
his pcrfectos, lu bis clnros as tn his
maduros. After tbe cigars are made,
however, his "selector" takes them In
hand nnd classifies them according to
tho relative shades of the wrappers.
This ls done to effect n uniformity ln
tbe appearance of each box of cigars
and to enable the dealer to readily Indulge the whims of tbe self, deluded
Inasmuch as tlie wrapper constitutes
not more than one-teuth of tho cigar, It
will readily bo seen that tbe degree of
Its strength or mildness ls very Inconsiderable In effect. In this connection,
however, It is Interesting to note that
tobacco tradesmen versed In the Intricacies of the industry rigidly bar the
light colored wrapper from their own
smoking tables, knowing that It generally Indicates that the leaf was prematurely cut aud Improperly cured and
that lt Impairs the flavor and burn of
the clgnr. Cubnns, who, by the way,
aro notubly partial to mild tobacco,
avoid smoking light colored cigars just
as thi'.v avoid eating a green orange or
an unripe banana.
The prejudice of theso natives and of
tobacco tradesmen Is a logical one and
Bcrves to throw Into bold relief a peculiar misconception of facts whlcb Is

Something More Than a Purgative.
To purge is the only effect of many
pills now on the market. Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills are more than a purgative. They strengthen the stomach, where other pills weaken It.
They cleanse the blood by regulating
the liver and kldndye, and they stimulate where other pill compounds depress. Nothing of an injurious nature,
used for merely purgative powers, enters Into their composition.

A Parisian scientist, while testifying

those agents which vitiate the atmosphere of towns. When forests are not

Then his calculations upon the re
payment of the loan are absurd. He

Surely any school boy should know
that the repayment of the principal
was a necessity and not an expense
due to borrowing. Still he multiplies
the repayment of principal with the
interest and says that is the cost. He
has totally overlooked the fact' that
the repayment fund is calculated at
3 per cent, interest, whereas we shall
loap °ut the sinking fund at 5 per
cent, thus showing a profit of 2 per
cent, with compound interest on all
the repayments into the sinking fund,
so that our loan eventually will cost
us nearer 2 1-2 per cent, instead of 5.
But our friend, when people are
asking for roads, offers them a telephone and street railway. Does he

advocated opening Ontario street.

may be used on the hands themselves
or any reliable cream. The former

Cool Kitchens
This warm Summer Weather is very trying to Housekeepers.   The
heat of tbe coal nnd wood stove is simply unbearable.
Kitchen drndgery is reduced to a minimum by the use of the GAS'
STOVE and GAS HOT PLATES.   Meals can be prepared quickly
and well withont heating the whole honse.
Housekeepers with a GA8 STOVE have mnch more time for rocroa-
tion than those who use the coal and wood stoves.
In onr Demonstrating and Show Room, we have many styles and
makes set np for examination ond trial.   Call and see thom.
