THE harvesting was over ln Brier Dale. It was near dinner
time, and Allen, Trove and
the two hired men were trying feats in the dooryard. Trove, then
a boy of fifteen, had outdone them all
at the jumping. A strangei came
along, riding a big mare with a young
filly at her side. He was a tall, spare
man, past middle age, with a red,
smooth shaven fnce and long gray hair
that fell to his rolling collar. He turned in at the gate. A little beyond It
his mare halted for a mouthful of
grass. The stranger unslung a strap
that held a satchel to bis side and hung
it on the pommel.
"Go and ask what we zan do for
bim," Allen whispered to t_<j boy.
Trove went down tbe drive, looking
up at him curiously,
"What can I do for you?" he Inquired.
"Give me thy youth," said the stranger quickly, his gray eyes twinkling
uuder silvered brows.
The boy, now smiling, made no answer.
"No?" said the man, as he came on
slowly. "Well, then, wero thy wit as
g:iod as thy legs it would be o' some
use to me."
The words were spoken with dignity
in a deep, kindly tone. They were also
faintly salted with Irish brogue.
He approached the men, all eyes filed upon him with a look of inquiry.
"Have ye ever seen n drunken sailor
on n must?" he inquired of Allen.
"Well, sor," said the stranger, dismounting slowly, "I am not that. Let
me consider—have ye ever seen a co-
coanut on a plum tree?"
"I believe not," said Allen, laughing.
"Well, sor, that Is njore like me. 'Tis
long since I rode a horse, an' am out
o' place in the saddle."
He stood erect with dignity, a smile
deepening the many lines in his face.
"Can I do anything for you?" Allen
"Aye-7-cure me o' poverty. Have ye
any clocks to mend?"
"Clocks! Are you a tinker?" said Allen.
"I nm, sor, an' at thy service. Could
beauty, me lord, bave better commerce
than with honesty?"
They all surveyed him with curiosity
and amusement as he tied the mare.
All had begun to laugh. His words
came rapidly on a quick undercurrent
of good nature. A clock sounded the
stroke of midday.
"What, ho! The clock," said he, looking nt his watch. "Thy time hath a
lugging foot. Marry, were I that slow,
sor, I'd never get to heaven!"
"Mother." said Allen, going to the
doorstep, "hcr£ Is a tinker, and he says
the clock Is slow."
"It seems to be out of order," said
his wife, coming to the step.
"Seems,  madam!    Nay,  It  Is!" said
the stranger.   "Did ye mind the stroke
of it?"
"No," said she.
"Marry, 'twas like the call of a dying
Allen thought a moment as be whittled.
"Had I such a stroke on me I'd—I'd
think I was paralyzed," the stranger
"You'd better fix It, then," said Allen.
"Thou art wise, good man," said the
stranger, "Mind the two bands on the
clock an' keep them to their place or
they'll beckon thee to poverty."
Tbe clock wns brought to the door-
Step, and all gathered about him os he
went to work.
"Ye know a power o' Scrlpter," said
one of the hired men.
"Scrlpter," said the tinker, laughing.
"I do, sor, an' much of it according to
the good St. William. Have ye never
read Shakespeare?"
None who sat before him knew anything of the Immortal bard.
"He writ a booli 'bout Dan'l Boone
an' tbe Injuns," a hired man ventured
" 'Angels an' ministers o' grace de
fend us!' " the tinker exclaimed.
Trove laughed.
"I'll give ye a riddle," said the tinker,
turning to blm.
"How is it the clock can keep a
sober face?"
"It has no ears," Trove answer—1.
"Right," said the old tinker, smiling.
"Thou aft a knowing youth. Read
Shakespeare, boy-n little of him three
times a day fdr the mind's sake. I've
traveled far in lonely places and needed no other company."
"Ever in India?" Trove Inquired.
He had been reading of that far land,
"I was, sor," tbe stranger continued, rttbblnjr a v'leel.    "I  ^-as live
years'ln India, sor, nlr part o' llie time
fighting ns hard us ever a man could
"Fighting!" said Trove, much Interested.
"I was, sor," he asserted, oiling a
pinion of the old clock.
"On which side?"
"Inside an' outside."
"With natives?"
"I did, sor; three kinds o' them—fever, fleas an' the divvle."
"Give us some more Shakespeare,"
said the boy, smiling.
The tinker rubbed his spectacles
thoughtfully, aud as he resumed his
work a sounding flood of tragic utterance came out of him—the great solil-
; oqutes of Hamlet and Macbeth and
Richard III. and Lenr and Antony, all
said with spirit and appreciation. The
job finished, they bade him put up for
j    "A fine  colt!"   Bald Allen as they
were on their way to the stable.
j    "It Is, sor," said the tinker, "a most
excellent breed o' horses."
;    "Where from ?"
[    "The graudsire from the desert o'
! Arabia, where Allah create __ the horse
out o' the south wind.   See the slender
flanks o' the Barbnry?   See her eye?"
He seemed to talk In thnt odd strain
for the mere joy of It, nnd there wns
in his voice the God given vanity of
bird or poet.
He had caught the Ally by her little
plume and stood patting her forehead.
For a moment he led her up and dowu
at a quick trot, her dainty feet touching the earth lightly ns a fuwn's.
"Thou'rt mnde for the hot lengues o'
tho great sand sen." snid ho, patting
her hend. "Ah, thy neck shnll be ns

"An' If he grnnt me the power to
spenk n word ln season to him that is
wenry I shall be content," said the
Dinner ovor, tbey enme out of doors.
The stranger stood filling his pipe.
Something In his talk nnd manner had
gone deep into the soul of the boy, who
now whispered a moment with his father.
"Would you sell the filly?" said Allen.
"My boy would like to own her."
"What, ho, tbe boy! Tlie beautiful
boy! An' would ye love her, boy?" the
tinker nsked.
"Yes, sir," the boy answered quickly.
"An' put a ribbon In her forelock aa'
a coat o' silk on her back, an', mind ye,
a man o' kindness in the saddle?"
"Yes, sir."
"Then take thy horse, an' Allah grant
thou  be successful  on  her as  many
times as there be hairs In her skin."
"And the price?" said Allen.
"Name It, an' I'll call thee just."
The business over, the tinker called
to Trove, who had led the filly to her
"You, there, strike the tents. Bring
me the mare. This very day sho may
bear me to forgiveness." .
... Trove brought the mare. I

"Reinepiber," said the old man, turning as be rode away, "In the day o' the
Inst judgment God '11 mind the look o'
thy horse."
He rode on a few steps and halted,
turning In the saddle.
"Thou, too, Phyllis," he called. "God
'11 mind the look o' thy master. See
that ye bring him,safe."
The little filly begnn to pear and call,
the mother to answer. For days she
called and trembled, with wet eyes, listening for tlie voice thnt still answered,
though out of hearing, fur- over the
hills. And Trove, too, was lonely, and
there was a kind of longing in his
heart for the music In that voice of the

The   Demand   For   Their   Skins   Haa
Nearly Exterminated Them.
"An alligator Is a rare thing In the
southern states now," snld C. B. Bunge
of Pensacola, Fla.
"Where they could be seen ln hun
dreds ten years ago, dotting the bnnks
of the rivers and swimming In the
Florida swamps, the sight ls now becoming a very uncommon one. The
great demand for their skins hns practically exterminated the creatures, and
they will soon be ns scarce as the
western buffalo. Some may still be
found ln the Everglades and other
swamps, but they are rarely seen, as
they live In mudholes to which even
the Semlnoles cannot gain access.
"The few that are captured are
caught by menns of strategy, as the
open water shooting ls a thing of tho
past. A strict watch ls kept over
their holes, and the moment the gator
appears he IS lassoed and dragged
bodily from his home. It Is a very
dangerous method while ln tlie water,
and lt requires the combined force of a
dozen men to drag an eight foot alligator to the mainland. Even when this
Is done the captors are wary, as a
blow from the creature's tall would
seriously disable the stoutest man.
"An alligator Is slow and clumsy ln
his movements, but can swing his tail
around In the twinkling of the eye.
The Indians generally wait until they
have the animal In a position where
he cannot use his tail and then sever
the ligaments with a well directed
blow of their sharp Instruments. The
government has taken the bounty off
the alligators, which In former years
was a great source of revenue to the
shiftless Crackers that Inhabit the
swnmps and make their living ln the
easiest possible mnnner. The price of
the skins has become double what lt
was a few years ngo, and it will not be
long before the dealers will have to
find some substitute for the skin of the
alligator."—Milwaukee Sentinel.
Ball Player's Hnrd Finish.
The lending of a ball player's career
has iu It much the same tragedy that
acconipnnles the loss of voice by the
singer. At one feli swoop the player
nnd his family drop comparative luxury, ease and the ability to have all
the ordinary pleasures of life and fall
to something like netunl poverty. Oftentimes poverty is encountered bofore
the end of the struggle is reached.
The still young couple, after several
years of good living, traveling, seeing
the world and enjoying all the fun In
sight, suddenly come with a splash to
the icy water of poor living, poor
clothes, inability to pay for theater
tickets aud trips about and inability
perhaps to much more thnn pny the
rent of a smnll flat, for the bnll player
who has never done anything but play
ball and who has not saved his money
Is against a hard proposition before he
can learn a trade or find something to
carry him safely along.—Brockton Enterprise.

Reoord of Hardship and Splendid  En
durance by a Member of Northwest
Mounted Police—Frozen Meat.
The qualities of the men who compose the Royal Northwest Mounted Police have often been demonstrated, but
rarely have fidelity, devotion to duty
fearlessness, unselfishness, and Indomitable determination been manifested In
greater dejrree than was displayed last
winter In a Journey made by Constabh
Seller, amounting ln all to about 99f
mile*. The trip was made In compan>
of Interpreter Ford untl an Esklrm
namo-d Tupealock. It was undertaker,
for the purpose nt locating the where
abouts of a Scottish ship, the Ernes'
William, and ascertaining her Ilaibi.lty
to the customs duty for supplies lm
ported. Constable Seller probably receives pay to the amount of ab mt $1.5'
a day, but, without a murmur, he
entered upon and successfully accomplished a Jourriey attended by great
hardships, and which many an explorer
would have been proud of relating. The
recital of Seller's trip ls contained In
a dairy, which has just been received
at the Mounted Police Department. No
thins more modest or unaffected than
his account of the long Journey and thi'
difficulties met with and surmounted
could be Imagined.
Constable Seller, with his two companions and a dog team of ten, lefi
Fullerton, on the west cast of Hudson
Bay, on Feb. 21 last. They returned on
April 19, having heen exposed for two
months to the rigors of an Arctic winter. The only casualty was a frostbitten leg of one dog that was left behind at Lyon's Inlet. On the way to
their destination and back Intensely
cold weather was encountered, and
many blizzards. At night snow houses
would be built for shelter, called by
the Eskimos "Igloos." Herds of deer
were seen, and several were shot for
food. For a couple of days, however,
both men and dogs went on short rations. Had lt not been for falling In
with a party of natives they would at
one time have been ln desperate straits.
For a great part of the Journey the
food had to be eaten frozen, because
the alcohol and wood gave out.
Here are a few extracts which show
the nature of the hardships encountered on the Journey: "We have only fifty
pounds of deer meat, two pounds of
pemmican, and six pounds of boiled
meat for ourselves, and the ten dogs,
so we must find natives. Very cold day
I had both my feet badly frozen. My
footgear ls ln a very bad state—wot
and worn out. We were compelled to
break up some barrels to cook food, ns
we had been subsisting on frozen meat
for  the  last  three  days.'-'
"Terrible snowstorm. Impossible to
go out looking for natives. Our dogs
are getting hungry, as they have had
nothing for three days. We cannot
possibly give them anything out of what
small supply we have for ourselves. My
feet are very sore, -the result of frost
"Bad storm, but not nearly so bad
as yesterday. I sent Ford and Tupealock out to look for natives. The/
returned at 5 p. m., bringing us Information that cheered us qutte a little. The ship they learned was at
_'elaohuseetuck,' the place where
ghosts chase women. They brought
some meat for the dogs, and said the
natives, who belonged to the Nltulick
tribe, would come ln the morning With
as much meat as they could spare.'-'
"Still storming. Finished up all our
meat for breakfast. About noon the
natives come ln, bringing about 400
pounds of meat, which I purchased
from them. It was nearly all seal meat
We found lt rather high all by itself,
but hunger ls a great sauce."
In due course the party reaohed the
vessel -for which they were searching,
and received a hearty Scottish welcome
from her commander, Capt. Murray,
who fitted them out with stores for
the  return Journey.
Here ls the last Item ln Constable
Seller's diary:
"April 19th. Broke camp at sunrise (about 4 a. m.) and made ths detachment about 2.30 p. m. Some few
miles from the barracks I noticed the
flag at balf-mast, which told me plainly that what I feared had come to pass.
On arrival my thoughts were confirmed on hearing that Staff-Sergeant
Hayne had passed away the night before. We were Just ln time to attend
the funeral."
The report of Constable Seller contains muoh valuable Information about
th* oountry traversed and the natives
met with. He mentions a rumor current among the natives that In the
winter of 1905 a white man belonging
to a ship wintering ln the Arctlo was
killed by the Nltulick tribe. The white
men retaliated by killing three Eskimos
and all their dogs. Constable Seller
believes some such thing- may have
happened ln connection with the Nor
weglan sloop QJoa.

Liverpool's Advance.
In the course of time Liverpool must
supersede London, points out a Manchester paper. Everything ls against
the latter, and Its supremacy has only
been retained by artificiality. If England has been discovered at the same
time as America, Liverpool would Inevitably have become the capital.
Commercially, according to the same
authority, lt is slowly but surely ousting London.

Of tbe Ice kept flowers of Vercler, a

trimming the ends every three weeks
and renewing wster each month.
Opinions of Feeders Do Not Agree—
Amount to Give and How
to Give It.
A sheep grower of Indiana has the
following' to say in the Indiana Farmer ln regard to the use of silage:
"Some sheep growers are enthusiastic ln their praises of corn silage as
a food for sheep. On tbe other hand, a
large number do not think so well of
lt. All those who have tried lt have
agreed with reference to the wisdom of
feeding a moderate quantity to the
flock when the ellage has been properly cured. On the other hand, quito
a number have found trouble whrti
feeding lt ln large quantities. On the
whole, lt ls not to be considered as satisfactory food for sheep as field roots,
since, more especially when there ls
much corn, tn tho silage, lt has a
tendency to produce a heated condition of the system, which with breeding ewes is not desirable. It ls not
well perhaps to feed corn silage to a
breeding flock more than once a day,
and when so fed the aim should be to
give them clover hay or alfalfa at
least once a day In order to produce a
proper balance In the ration. In cold
weather It ls probably wiser to feed
the silage at noon than morning or
night. When exposed to such weather
for only a few minutes the temperature as cool as Is frequently found In
sheep sheds will freeze more or less,
or lf lt does not freeze lt becomes very
cold. For this reason lt is better to
feed lt ln the middle of the day ln
cold weather, for nt that time the temperature ls usually many degrees
warmer than In the morning or evening. It Ib not common to feed more
than two to four pounds of silage per
head per day to sheep, but some farmers who grow winter Iambs feed as
much as that twice a day, more especially after the lambs have been born,
A great advantage of silage as a food
for sheep consists ln Its cheapness. It
furnishes the cheapest food that may
be fed to them, and when properly fed
there should be no fear of hurtful results from feeding silage well made."
Importance of Saving Nitrogen In tho
One thing we feel Inclined to talk
about every year is the mistake of letting cornfields or other cultivated
ground remain bare through the fall
and winter. A considerable loss of
nitrogen results from this practice.
After summer crop ls taken off tho
processes of nitrification go on ln the
soil, especially If stable manure has
been used. Nitrification means the
process by which nitrogen Ib made
soluble or available. When made over
Into this form It ls quite easily washed out of the soli nnd lost. When soil
ls left bare after harvest considerable
loss will occur ln this way, but when
some living crop Is growing on the
ground this new crop will obtain most
of the nitrogen and save lt for us.
This nitrogen problem ls the most Important thing on our farms. We must
buy lt ln one form or another, and lt ls
constantly struggling to get away from
us. It ls the part of good farming to
capture and save all we can. If nothing else can be done, sow rye on all
bare lands. If you cannot plow, harrow and seed. There are some exceptions to this. One Is where the sod ls
filled with white grubs. In that case
it Is better not to seed, but to plow
and keep the surface well stirred
through fall and early ln spring. The
constant cultivation is the best method
of fighting these Insects.—Ri>ral New

the philosopher of old, "No, I cannot play on any muBical instrument,
but, I can tell you how, out of a
small village, to make a great and
glorious city." The people in that
community should certainly feel
proud to have among them such a
public spirited citizen as Mr. Lamb
and we predict for the Standard a
brilliant future.
Mr. Lamb is an out and out believer in free trade, and those who
have heard him, say he is a very
convincing platform speaker.

VV. !*). LAMB
Editor Plumas Standard.
Mr. W. D. Lamb, whom llie above
picture represents, and the subject of
this sketch, waa born forty years ago,
in Gerrie, Ont., Huron county. There
he attended school, and spent the
early years of his life.
At the age of eighteen he began
teaching school, and, after spending
seven years in that profession, graduating from the Clinton model and Toronto normal schools, he drifted into
mercantile life. Ten years ago he
came west, and settled in Plumas, a
village on the Lake Manitoba Railway and Canal Co., that had just
been surveyed.
Three years ago, Mr. Lnmb, nlmost by accident, discovered the reason why his own and otlier villages
were only Btarved, stunted, little
places, compnred with what they
should be, if public, affairs were conducted in accordance with the dictates of reason and common sense,
in a way that would secure justice
between man and man. Nothing so
disgusts him, as to hear people lament the fact that their town doesn't
grow, while at the same time, those
who build up, develop and enrich the
country, are regularly penalized by
taxation, while the idle holders of
tewn lots or agricultural lands, reap
where others sow. Their holdings
are increasing in value, not on account of what the owners do, but on
account of what others do, producing
nothing, but absorbing what others
produce. He believes in the Henry
George remedy for this state of affairs. When our reporter called, he
had at tho head of his paper, as a
text for that issue, a selection from
Henry George, which may be taken
as the Standard's political creed.
"We would take for the community
what belongs to the community, the
value attaching to land by the growth
of the community, leaving sacred to
the individual all that belopgs to the
individual." In other words, he urges that municipalities should exempt everything from taxution except the community value of land.
He thinks it too bad that people
should let the railway corporations
get the good of the town sites while
the people tnx themselves to denth
on their goods and buildings. He
thinks people stupid, not to get that
town site valuo. by taxation, into
their treasury, for schools, sidewalks,
local improvements, etc. The population of l'lunuis is only' 200, but the
country nround would warrant a population of 1,000 easily. Mr. Lnmb
says he will sell out tlie Standard
just as soon ns overy industrious
farmer around has a nice comfort- \
able home, liia farm clenr of mortgage, and a comfortable bank account, and in the meantime, he will
use the paper as a mentis to show
people what the trouble is.
Mr. Lamb has taken a lively interest in municipal politics, and judging from the way we heard the
Standard spoken of, the people nre
expecting some tremendous chnnges
soon. The pnper seems to have a
firm grip on the minds ol the people.
He had no previous experience in
printing, not knowing even "the
case" before he got his plant set up.
He is his own reporter, editor, manager, jobber, etc., a tireless worker,
and a brain capacity that remembers

The raising of teaoiii ra salaries is becoming a very live question Out Of
ninety lady teachers only 15 receive
$ 5 per month and over—one gets.$90—
the remaining theachers receive from
$40 to $4fi per month. The meu tpachers
fare a little better but not tnuon.' The
School Board has raised the salaries of
its Superintendent, Secretary and'
Stenographer but shows a tendency, to
keep the teachers on the "wage sla^o"
basis. The teachers should be paid/fair.

) ■ -,. *  ,^i£    ** .
Lie down, O Sonl, to rest a^d peace,
The night sorcno brings Bweet, screease
To toil and trial, and the day.
Of tribulation fades away.
Life's labor done, the night sereno
Lets fall its curtain on the scene,
And from the restful shadows, clear,
Oomeil\opeful dreams to raise and chaer-
The wearied spirits, ill or good,
Which' struggled,Cver as they could.
The night serene, to slavo and free,
Cdmes, in its silent chirity
Of gratefnl rest and blessed sleep,
To thosevwho smile and thoserwhoweop;
Enfolding in its calm'embrace
The tired runners in the race
Who win or lose, it lulls to rest
Upon its.gentle, kindly breast
The strong whQi stand, the weak who
lean -    "
God's mercy Is.the night serene.'

To have felt and wholly forgotten the
ln-auding-irou of their eyes;      *
To .have stood-up" pro-^ and reliant on

To have fitted  a cruiser   for right  to

To have dreamed the bright dreaifl of-

To have fastened your faith like a flng
to that immaterial staff
And  have  marched  away, forgetting

And while tho worldly wise see nothing

And though far ahead, the   heart may

To have dreamed  that  bold dream is

The say that shaped bn'ts and flops
in chip, Milan and Crinolines, also in
JavaB and - Leghorns, will, -without
doubt, be the big feature of tbe season,
replacing almost entirely the heavy
makes in straws as formerly need
There will be a much greater variety iu
.styles than for some seasons. In Paris
salons yon will see almost every-known
shape from the almost flat mushroom
laden with flowers, to the high square
crown called '-Revolution," a dt^sUiug
pietute hat trimmed with chene ribbon,
large square steel buckle in front, and
two handsome plumes. Every hat will
have its due portion of tulle, many will
b? made and ■ • trimmed with ■ tulle,
powers and ribbons.' In tact, hat trimmings for the coming season may be
summoned ! nP as follows.:' Tulles,
flowers, ribbons, chiffons, with, bookies
and large ball pins. In the latter many
handsome designs are shown in porpe-
laine', tortoise shell, amber and pearl,
and there Is little doubt that these ball
pins will have an immense sale.'-
Flops of all ma^eSi particularly in
, chip and crinoline; should haves n, large
sale, as they lend themselves beat of ill
to tbe making up Of the many nnname-
able shapes that are shown
The season will undoubtedly be one
of lightness, everything of a heavy
nature being.barred, with perhaps the
exception of velvet ribbons, which hnve
been- introduced with gopdjeffeot by
many leading Parisian modistes, and
for which a, big sale, is predicted!
Roses from the small Banksia, to the
large; American Beauty rose, are leaders,
whole brnnol—is of the latter being used
making a very striking and effective
trimming. Lilacs and hyacinths promise unusually good sale,
The later novelties in grasses, and
fluid-flowers arei well thought of, and
will doubtless command a good share
of attention,    > -<
In white, colors and black, coque,
plumes--, paradise and wings, will le
used largely, Plain and shot, in failb-
tiue, satin, liberty aud taffetas, and
fancies iu elienes, Roman stripes uud
plajds, are the best property in ribbons.
Velv.et.nnd satin in tynck aud oolors
oro good', »
Tulles, the big filing of the season,
Ulreiuly.hiis had enormous si le.
The tendency is for light pastel; ef
focts, and these ere largely covered in*
'the white and shot effects. Plain tolork,
oreaui, champegno, ciel, v.rosu, p-trli
'reseda, navy, tab-vo. New tones, Haublon
(a palo yellow ureeu) and- Miel"'(old
gold tonus) are also in good demand.'
Proxoljnc-v for making uj): purposes
will be l^rgely'iised.
A very nptlcenb _ feature in. the, new
lingerie .waists shown is tinm the full-
ess is held very closely at the waist-

Mapping the World.
Of the total area ot the earth less
than one-sixth has been as yet accurately surveyed; and of this small
fraction of the globe Europe accounts
for the greater part. Nearly four million square miles of the British Empire are still unmapped, in addition
to such immense areas as Canada,
Australia and India; but according
to the last report of the Indian Survey Committee, the completion
of the one-inch topographical map of
mil India only awaits a survey of the
Rajputana Desert. The Indian survey has also been accomplished—No
less than 58,000 square miles in Thibet and 6,000 square miles in South
Arabia. In South Africa the Rhode-
•sian survey is being actively carried
•on, only three stations now remaining south of the Zambesi not fully
connected with the main triangula-
tion. Much of the work of the Indian survey has only been made possible by the unselfish devotion of native merpbers of the staff, a typical
instance of which is that of Sheikh
_lohiudin, who died of thirst in the
Seistan (Persia) desert, his native
assistant—who on his officer's death,
had taken the planesheets from the
board and wound them round his
body—being found insensible in a
distant pool of water. For the past
five years, eleven French officers and
twenty-eight soldiers of the Service
Geographique de l'Armee have been
•engaged in measuring the great arc
of Peru, and many of them succumbed to the terrible privations to which
they were exposed in the wilds of the
Cordillera. From Africa (where British survey officers are slowly creeping northward from Rhodesia and
southward from Egypt) come similar records of hardships, and indeed,
wherever the theolite is following
the explorer.—Westminster Gazette.

Says They Cured Him of Pain After
Food, Belching, Constipation and
Weakness — He Was Gradually
Losing Weight but has Now Regained It.
One of the most impressive cures
of indigestion and allied ailments
ever reported has just been effected
by Bileans in Toronto. The subject
is Mr. Arthur R. Hand, a prominent
teacher of painting on china, leather,
glass, etc., residing at 2 Woodgreen
Place, Toronto.
As a teacher of painting, Mr. Hand
has made for himself a wide reputation, but liis work was interfered
with considerably by acute attacks
of digestive disorder.   He says:
"I suffered agonies for months previous to taking Bileans, resorted to
all kinds of remedies, but found only
temporary relief. The indigestion
came on quite suddenly, soon after
eating, and caused me terrible pain.
There was a constant feeling of uncomfortable fullness in the stomach,
pains in the chest and under the
shoulder blades and rifting and belching of gas.
I had constipation so badly that no
medicines seemed to have any effect
on the bowels. I dieted a great deal,
but the slightest food brought the
same distress. After taking a few
Bileans I experienced ease and comfort after meals, so I purchased a
supply of this vegetable remedy and
left all other medicines alone. Bileans cured me. Now my food digests very nicely and my bowels act
quite naturally.
'Before I took Bileans my food did
me no good, and I was losing weight
rapidly. In a few months, through
the use of this valuable remedy, my
weight increased from 125 to 165 lbs.
This increase, too, is not useless fat,
but sound, healthy flesh."
Not only for indigestion, but for
constipation, piles, general debility,
anemia, female ailments, rheumatism,
blood impurities, liver and kidney
complaint, headache, dizziness, wind,
etc., Bileans are widely recommended. They are purely herbal and do
not merely relieve these ailments—
they cure them permanently. All

Nervous Diseases Can Be Early Detected and Cure
Brought About by Using
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
It is customary to consider paralysis, insanity and other diseases of the
nerves as afflictions which come upon
a person without warning and wliich
are, therefore, unavoidable.
As a mntter of fact such results are
preceded by months, if not years, of
symptoms which point to an exhausted condition of the nervous system.
These symptoms are such, however,
that many pass them by as not being of serious concern and thinking
that they will wear away of themselves.
Sleeplessness, nervous headaches,
indigestion, bodily weakness, fainting
spells, twitching of the nerves, inability to concentrate the thoughts
and ioss of memory are nmong the
most common indications of a rundown nervous system. It is sometimes only a step from such symptoms to prostration, paralysis, locomotor ataxia or insanity.
Stimulants and narcotics] though
sometimes affording temporary relief,
only hasten the exhnustion of' the
nerves. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, on
the other hand, reconstructs and restores the wasted and depleted nerve
Naturally, gradually nnd certainly
this great medicine instils into the
blood and the nervous system the
life-sustnining principles which replenish the nerve force in the body
and so effect lasting benefit.
Mrs. W. R. Sutherland, St. Andrews, Mnn., writes:
"In February, 1003, I was stricken
with paralysis, fell helplessly on the
floor and had to be carried to bed.
The doctor pronounced it a bad case
as I, had no power in my tongue and
left leg. I remained in that condition for six months without obtaining benefit from the doctor's prescriptions or other medicines.
"My husband advised me to try
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food and by the
use of this treatment all symptoms
of the disease disappeared. I can
talk plainly, my leg is all right and
I can do my housework. How grateful I am to be cured by so wonderful a remedy."
Miss Emma Scott, Athens, Ont.,
writes: "Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has
done me a world of good. I was
troubled with fainting spells, bodily
weakness and spent restless, sleepless
nights. I frequently had cramps in
the stomach and would at times become entirely insensible, not knowing what was going on until others
toid me afterwards.
"I doctored with several doctors
and they told me I was threatened
with paralysis. They gave me relief,
but could not cure me. After Buffering for three years I began the use
of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, and it has
done me more good than all the medicines I ever used."

Numbering the Hair*.
The number of Individual hairs that
aover the human scalp ls greatly a matter of speculation; but It is supposed
to vary according to the thickness and
color of the hair. A well-known authority estimates that red-haired people
possess the fewest, and places the average number at thirty thousand. Blank-
haired persons, on the oilier hand, ar«
sa'd to run Into one hundred thousand; j
while the fair haired have the largest
number of all—namely, one hundred
and fifty thousand. These figures should
form a valuable Index to those people
whose hair ls on the down grade. An
excessive falling oft Could be reckoned
at from 100 upwards, and by counting
the number of hairs they lose each
day somo Idea might be formed'as to
how long they are likely to be before
they are overtaken with total baldness.
Hairs which fall out, however, are not
always a "total loss." They often gro-
agaln from the root.

Paper Is more often used as a covering
than anything else, and wall paper at
that, a pretty conceit being to use a bit
of the wall paper with which your room
Is papered. With a good paste—not too
wet, or the paper stretches and .stains
hopelessly—and a broad, flat brush to
apply It with, covering a box Is a short
hour's work, with very gratifying results.
Paste the top of the lid on before
cutting the edges to their proper size,
and then slash them or cut narrow V-
shaped bits out, at regular Intervals
all the way round, and ease the divisions over the rim, turning them up
on the wrong side to make a neat finish. Or they may be cut off rather
short, just enough to make a "seam"
over the turn, and a narrow strip
pasted around the lower rim.
ln this case the strip should be
slightly wider than the rim, the upper edge titled neatly to the edge of
the top. the lower slashed and turned
under so that no white edge may show
In  the finished work.
The box Itself ls done in the same
way as the lid, but is a somewhat easier problem, lt Is that narrow rim
upon the lid which makes lt troublesome.
A covering, where the box Is for a
trousseau (though they are by no
means confined lo trousseaus), is made
sometimes of a piece of one of tho
dresses ln the trousseau, or, perhaps,
of the silk which ls used for the
bridesmaids' dresses. Such a box
makes a pretty gift—one of those extra trousseau gifts heaped upon the
bride by her nearest and dearest
friends—for bridesmaid or maid of
honor to make.
Sometimes, too, a favorite party
dress, discarded because it ls shabby
now, but which has memories of pleasant times tucked away In every one
of Its silken folds, will furnish enough
material to cover a box.
Cretonne Is a favorite cover, and the
French crotoiines show the daintiest,
prettiest flowered designs of all. But
almost any material, with a good design In dainty coloring, may be uBed,
provided It is close and Arm and not too
sheer—you don't want seams to show
through nor to make ugly ridges.
Pin the silk In place before attempting to sew—even to cut—lt, and turn the
edges ln, using plenty of pins. After the
seams are marked, the silk can be
slipped off and sewed up by machine;
or lt can be seamed lip by hand without removing from the box. A thin m.
wadding of cotton batting, sprinkled *m
with a good sachet powder, or simply
with powdered orris root, which bears
only the suggestion • f perfume, ls sometimes used.
The Inside of the box Is often left
plain, or covered neatly with plain white
paper, anything else being almost a
professional's task to adjust so that lt
will be smooth. Probably the best way,
when the outer covering ls of paper,
Is to paste a na' 'ow strip around the
Inner edge—just enough to cover up the

Handles of heavy cord (using silk for

other cotton stuffs) make the box not

Wide ribbons are brought around the

the meat chopper has sprung into
sudden popularity. Many of the
things for which the former was exclusively used are now done more quickly and with greater ease by the-latter.
The meat chopper is a godsend to one
woman, who makes chow-chow soiappe-
tlzing that she Is forced to do it tiy the
Job lot. Formerly she cut the different
ingredients separately, until one day the
brilliant Idea struck her, "Why not put
everything through the chopper?" In
went tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and
pickles, one at a time, and all the former work of two uuys wua done in a
AppleB, pears and quinces for butters
are also put through the meat chopper,
with great saving of time und temper
Being cut much smaller, moreover, than
they would otherwise be, they boll down
more easily.
All the Juice from fruits prepared ln
this way must be carerully caught. The
chopper Itself should be scrupulously
clean to remove all taste of meat. Boiling the parts In soda water insures perfect cleanliness.

Lingerie Styles in Skirts
INGERIE skirts, discovered last
summer to be so successful an
addition to an outfit where economy must be considered at every point,
are being taken up by ten women this
spring to one who achieved them last
They are nothing more than separate
skirts, made of handkerchief linen or
batiste—the two favorite materials for
lingerie blouses—the seams put together by beading. Perhaps a few
tucks are set ln by way of trimming,
or perhaps a bit of Valenciennes lace
ls inserted. When lace is used, it Is
always of a ttaple, Inconspicuous design, so that lt will go with each and
every one of the blouses which grace
its  owner's wardrobe.
With a skirt like this, each blouse
becomes, ln turn, part of a little summer dress, Instead of the radically separate affair It ls when worn with any
other sort of skirt.
You may combine three
or fou.   -lifferent kinds  upon the
same gown, and  rest content, for :
you are in the fashion. ^
If you possess a bit of Chantllly
or Spanish lace, which has becr.
stored away for genera (ions, get it
out and rejoice, for now is the time
to wear it. If you have no such
heirlooms, the modern maker can
supply the want, for never in the
history of lace making have more
beautiful "antique patterns" been
put on the market.
Black is extremely popular, and
one of the absolutely new offerings
of the season is a black Irish
crochet lace.
Panel effects are worn more ai_J
more. A well-known actress appeared not long since in a very
striking white gown, and from the
shoulders was suspended, stole-
, fashion, panels of black lace. The
innovation met with the approval
of the feminine half of ihe audience, ut any rate.
Rlnck over white is a French*
touch that is taking on this side of
the water. A handsome black gown
trimmed with black lace, which has
the black cut away from under its
most striking patterns, letting a
(white lining show through, gives
something the appearance of medallions set on, but is much newer.
What is known as the filet or
square effect is distinctly an item of
this year's mode. It may be introduced into panels, galloons, medallions, ornaments, even into blouse
patterns and robes, and is always
A blouse made of black luce "all-
over'- and lined wilh chiffon is particularly charming when this filet effect is present.

more and more popular. They come
in blnek, while, cream and ecru, nntl
in the most exquisite designs, 'i'he
handsomest are really embroidery
upon n net foundation, nnd this
combination of embroidery upon
lace is one of the features of tho
1900 season.
It is Intfoduoed into the smaller
lace pieces nnd ornaments, as well
ns into'the large, and is suid to be
a great help to the dressmaker, for
if she has so many different' combinations to choose from, her tusk
of designing something new in a
costume  is greatly lessened.
