Continued from last week.
She had a^/leadactie tho'10 flowing
evening1, and Polly Insisted upon lier
staying in bud to breakfast.
"You'll take n holiday to-day,
Miss Wood," she said, sternly. "In
fact, if you're not bettor when 1
come home, 1 sha'n't let you touch
a hat for a fortnight. You'ro looking almost ns palo us when I foil—
when you camo to 'ehi'i'i* my solitary
lot.' You'll just sit up with a Shaw]
over you like tho regulation invalid.
Wonder why we always put on a
shawl when we're queer? A man
doesn't put on a greut coat."
She went to the drawer for the
shawl anil found the sheets of paper.
On the front page wus written:
"Betrothed:    A  Play  in One   Act."
—on', a piny has no sacrodncSB I'or
an actress, and Polly, after sho hud
put the shawl round N'itia, went bar-
to the si'tting-rooin they now Shared
nnd read "11 etrothed" without a
When she hnd finished it she jumped
up, slipped on hor hat and jnckot
and stolo stealthily down stairs to
the girl typewriter who lodged on the
first floor back.
"How Boon can you copy that?"
she asked.
"Thia day week," said the girl,
Folly laughed. "Get it dono in
three hours—oh, I know how long it
will take; lodged with a typewriter
once—and I'll give you an extra two
"Make it half-a-crown," said the
girl, wistfully; and Polly made it
Nina got up in the evening—she felt
strangely exhausted all day—and
going to tho drawer took out tho
MSS. and burnt it carefully and
slowly sheet by sheet. Thon she sighed heavily, and shaking herself, as
ono shakes off an illusion and a
weakness, got a book and read; but
every now and then she looked at
tho firo which had consumed hor
"Betrothed," and chocked a sigh
larger even than tho first.
Polly carried the typewritten copy
to the theatre. liut sho did not Ily
to tho manngcr and exclaim that
she had a inustcrpiece in her possession; she was too clover for such
folly. Sho know too well that Mr,
Haicoui't would recoil as if the
word "play" woro synonymous with
It is true that managers live by
plays, but—ah, woll, it is easier for
a. millionaire to dispose of his millions than for a new author to ]—r-
suado a manager to look at the lirst
Sho wont to Miss Tracey—to talk
about the hat—and dropped the play
Just by tho door, whero Miss Tracey
found it, glanced at it with surprise,
pitched it behind the looking-glass,
and promptly forgot it. Her maid,
hunting for some grease paint, found
it and laid it on tho top of tho pin-
- cushion. Miss Tracey picked It up resentfully and attacked the manager
with it when ho came into the room
a little later.
"I wish you wouldn't leave your
■I'.ly plays about, Mr. Harcourt,"
she said, pettishly.
"No play of mino,'-' he said with
listless indignation.
"Then whero did it como from?"
"Don't know, don't want to know.
Want to speak to you about this
first thing. Have to come off. People
.won't stand it."
"I'm not surprised. It's worso
than bad. Whut will you put in its
Mr. Harcourt mentioned an "old
Miss Tracey shrieked "Not for me,
" Ton my soul, there's no pleasing
youl" he grumbled as he left the
Miss Tracey threw the play aaide,
then picked it up, saw that it was
typewritten and began to read it. In
less than llvo minutes her attitude
changed from peevish disquietude to
one of ab9orlx.il uttcution, and presently sho sprung to hor feet and
called impatiently to her maid.
"Jenny, this play—who brought it
here—who's been in my room? Yesterday it wns. Now, keep your eyes
in your head, though so far as their
usefulness goes you might drop them.
Quick 1"
Jenny assured her that no one had
boen in tho room—excepting Miss
"Thon fetch Miss Dalnford."
Jenny had not far to go; Polly
was hovering in tho corridor.
"Oh, Miss Tracey, I left it here
then!" she exclaimed. "I ni so glad
I found ltl 1 thought 1 must huve
dropped it in the street. Oh, thank
youl" She held out her hand, with
on innocent expression.
Miss Tracey whipped hers behind
hor back.
"Who wrote it? It's—its' (not
bad," sho said. No actor will admit
that a play ia good unless he hus
the leading part actually in his possession. No manager will admit, under any circumstances, that a play
Is good. It would hurt him too
The belief that no woman con write
a successful play still cxistn, notwithstanding some notable instances
to the contrary; and Polly, who was
quite aware of tho prejudice, which
is as hard to kill as an annuitant,
said, with the same innocent expression:
"Oh, it's    my friend    Miss Wood's
brother,   Ho's an  Invalid—a  cripple.
His name's Herbert.   Ho lent it me
-.    to read, but I haven't had time.  Oh,
\Folly,   (Polly!     He'd   be    mad If I
Ttadn't. found it I"
Miss Tracey still held on to tho
"It's not ait all bad," she said,
guardedly, "and there's a part in lt
that I rather fancy. I'll speak to
Mr. Harcourt about It, if you like."
Polly went homo ln a state of
suppressed excitement, whlcb she
concealod beneath a show ol extreme
"Don't you ever have anything to
do with the theatro, Declina," she
adjured. "It's a poor game at tho
best, and at tho worst—" She
UUtugad her shoulders..
•"I'm not at"a"** likely to," said
Nina with a smile and a sigh, which,
quiet us it was,  Polly heard.
Mr. Harcourt sent for her two days
afterward. Oh, the suspense of those
two days! If the "Betrothed" had
been Polly's own betrothed sho could
not have suffered moro keenly.
"Oh, Mtofi Bainford," he said with
touching listlessness, "Miss Tracey
■showed me that littlo play. It's not
good, of course, but we might knock
it into shape. Miss Tracey says the
principal part will suit her. I'm
inclined to try it. Of courso, your
friend,  Mr.—Mr.—"
"Wood," suggested Polly.
"Ah, yes. Wood, wouldn't expect
anything for it?"
"Oh, but he would!" Bald Polly.
"He's not poor—not what you'd call
poor. His father left him an independent income—"
Mr. Harcourt took up a bundle of
letters and kept his e_<_ on them in
an absorption so long and profound
that any one less sophisticated than
Polly would have been convinced that
he had forgotten tho play and her.
But Polly waited in bland security.
She knew she had her fish on the
hook; the thing was to land him.

John Peursou was distinctly nnuoyed.
He would not have believed Eugenia
could be so unreasonable. It wus bad
enough to lose Havens, who was the
best stenographer he ever had, but
when he finally secured another who
could do satisfactory work, to have Eugenia object because the girl was
young and pretty was enough to make
a man lose all patience.
He strove to appease his fiancee's
wrath by pointing out how Inferior iu
beauty eud grace the new stenographer
appeared to him ln comparison with
herself. He tried to appeal to her reason, her pride, for faith ln him, but to
little purpose.
"You need not trouble to call again
or to communicate with me until you
have discharged that girl," was tlio
ultimatum, and Pearson went nwny,
angry and indignant, anathematizing
all women and their silly, unreasonable
Miss Anthony was not often unreasonable aud had had little occasion for
Jealousy. She hardly could have explained It herself, but her annoyance
about the girl and her resentment toward her lover had begun when she
had asked the name of the new employee and John had replied, "Anna
The tiny flames had been fanned and
Increased by every word of praise for
Miss Darling that the unconscious
Pearson had stupidly uttered until sbe
could bear lt no longer. She magnified
his satisfaction with the girl's work
Into love for the girl herself, and sbo
felt for the moment quite Justified in
demanding her discharge.
But with the next day's light Miss
Anthony's good sense and love of fair
play reasserted Itself. "How silly I
was," she thought.
She resolved to send him a little note
or a telephone message, but decided to
wait until evening. He wns to take ber
to tbe opera, and on the way she would
confess ber unreasonableness.
Tbe evening passed, and no John and
no message to explain his absence. Ten
o'clock, 10:80! "I won't be foolish," sbe
thought firmly. I'll call him up by
phone and tell him I want to say good
She bad often done tbls when It had
not been possible for John to come to
her. Sbe smiled happily as she rang tlie
bell and called for the Pearson residence. John lived with his brother, aud
she knew the family had gone away.
She recognized the housekeeper's voice
In reply to her call, but ber fnce fell at
the message. Mr. John had not been
home, and Mrs. Barnes could get no reply to frequent calls over tbe phone to
the offlce.
The next morning Miss Anthony
called Mrs. Barnes again, with similar
results. Mr. John did not come home,
and there waa evidently no one at his
Mis* Anthony was essentially a woman of action. She dressed herself In a
most becoming street costume and a
half hour later was entering the great
offlce building on Congress street Pearson's offlce was closed, tbe door locked.
"He wasn't there all day yesterday,"
volunteered the elevator boy.
"But surely some one was," Insisted
Miss Anthony. "Tho young lady"—
"She came ln the morning, but went
away again Immediately," he answered.
Miss Anthony was quick to resolve
and equally quick to execute. She consulted tba directory and took a car for
Arlington. At the door of a neat little
cottage she paused. Yes, there was the
name, Darling, on the doorplate. What
could she say to the girl even lf sbe
found her? Did sbe really expect to believe that she and John— Then sbe lifted ber bead proudly. Was sbe going to
be silly again? Something had happened to John, and Miss Darling might be
able to aid her in learning wbat It was.
When Miss Darling entered the room
Miss Anthony hardly could restrain the
impulse to take her ln her arms, such
a pretty, timid looking little thing—
hardly more than a child. Her eyes
were visibly red with weeping, and
when Miss Anthony asked her lf Bbe
had been at work tbe day before her
face colored painfully.
Miss Anthony explained enough ot
the situation for Miss Darling to understand the reason for ber visit, and
then Mlsa Darling told ber own story
"I have been with Mr. Pearson nearly
a month and supposed my work was
entirely satisfactory. I went to work
yesterday morning aa usual, but I bad
hardly entered tbe offlce when tho telephone bell rang. On answering lt I
found It was Mr. Pearson speaking. He
said that he should require my services
no longer and would mall me a check
for two months' salary."
Sbe paused, choking back a sob. Miss
Anthony blushed with shame aud regret
"I left tbe offlce Immediately, of
course. I cannot understand lt, for I
was at work on some papers that Mr.
Pearson was very anxious to have finished this week—work that another
stenographer could uot well take up.
And"—she hesitated—"as yet I have
not received the check."
Miss Anthony spoke rapidly and with
decision. "Miss Darling; I am convinced tbat there ls some mistake. I
know Mr. Pearson was satisfied with
your work."
"Do you think," asked Miss Darling
eagerly, "that lt was not Mr. Pearson- -
that lt was a hoax?"
"I hardly know what to think," returned Miss Anthony evasively, "but I
am so sure that Mr. Pearson ls pleased
witn your work and wishes to retain
you ln his employ that I am going to
ask you to return to the office now
with me. Perhaps ln some way we
may learn something of him."
The two girls were standing before
Pearson's door, and Miss Darling was
searching ln her handbag for her duplicate key when a young man approached, saying courteously, "Were you looking for Mr. Pearson?"
"Yes," answered Miss Anthony quietly. "Can you tell me lf he will bo ln
"I think not There art several important  WW  bafnr* tba
this term, and its sitting may last tbrea
or four days more."
Miss Anthony recognized her Informant as a young architect who had an
offlce in the same building.
"I do not understand," she sold.
"What has Mr. Pearson got to do wltb
the grand Jury?"
"Mr. Pearson wan seized yesterday
by United States Marshal Brown to
serve." As Miss Anthony's face betokened no enlightenment, he went on:
"When the grand Jury was polled yesterday there were three absentees, and
ln order to carry on the business lt was
necessary to fill those vacancies. The
absent men are sick, and It would
greatly retard the work of the government lf the Jury- had to be adjourned
until they recovered."
Miss Anthony regained her poise.
"Would Mr. Pearson have to go If he
did not wish?" ln stately surprise.
"Yes. Any citizen ls liable to such
"But—but his own business?" Interposed Miss Darling.
"Quite a secondary matter ln the eyes
of the law," replied the young man.
"And In such a case ls no message
sent to the citizen's friends V questioned Miss Anthony.
"Certainly. If Mr. Pearson had any
clerk or secretary In bis offlce the deputy marshal would likely notify that
person, and Mr. Pearson could send a
message to his family lf he has one."
Miss Anthony and Miss Darling exchanged glances. They knew that Mr.
Pearson had no family and at tbe time
of his unwelcome seizure he bad no
clerk, and Miss Anthony knew wby no
message bad been sent to ber.
"And Mr. Pearson cannot come away.
He ls—he ls held there?'
"Held by the government" he replied
Miss Anthony thanked him courteously, and he passed on.
Miss Darling unlocked the door, and
tbe two girls entered the office.
"Is the work Mr. Pearson wanted
done all stenographic work?" Miss Anthony asked.
"Not all. There are some abstracts to
be copied and"—
"I shall help you," with gentle decision.
Wben the grand jury adjourned United States Marshal Brown handed a
note to Juryman Pearson.
"Miss Darling and I have your work
nearly done," read the astonished Pearson. "Please come to me as soon as
you are released. I think we had better
arrange matters so that lf you are held
by the government again you will have
some one to whom a message must be

An uptown man who may be designated as Mr. Blank was asked by his
wife the other day to aid ln removing
inside shutters from windows throughout the house so tbat they could be
washed. Being ln a hurry, he asked
bis better balf to defer tbe matter until his return from the office. "I'll do
it myself," was her retort "Don't,"
was Mr. B.'s counsel as he departed;
"women don't understand such work."
This of course ouly more firmly decided Mrs. Blank to go ahead, and wben
Blank returned that ulght he found
the shutters down. His wife was nursing several lacerated fingers, but Bhe
wore a triumphant air. "The screwdriver slipped once or twice," she explained ln response to his inquiring
glance at her bandaged digits. "Screwdriver slipped!" repeated Mr. B. In a
dazed tone. "Great snakes, woman!
You don't mean to say you unscrewed
all the shutter hinges?" "Of course,"
sold his wife complacently. "What
otber way could I get the abutters
down?" For answer Blank lifted a
abutter and pulled the pin out of one
of the hinges, showing tbat tbe taking
down of each shutter only Involved tbe
removal of two pins. Wben he figured
that there were ten pairs of shutters
and each pair required the driving of
sixteen screws to put them np be

Is  the  Romance of the Sea Dead?
While I slowly eat my dinner in the
magnificent saloon of the great liner
"Amerika," and looked about at the
jolly littlo parties of two and four and
six, ot the daintily clad women and the
severely clad men, und at the freshly
cut flowers and the sparkling cut
glass, and while 1 listened to the low-
pitched laughter and talk and to the
music of the gay little red-coated

I had strolled over from Piccadilly Circus to Pall Mall, of a eold, foggy
evening, and had turned in at the
Carlton Hotel. I grew sober as I
thought about it. We did these
things very differently a little while'
back. Even a little while back—as
the history of human-kind runs—life
at sea meant more, for it seemed to
bring a man nearer to his God, than
we of to-day very often get. "Is it

it waB and the tall clipper ship has
followed the stagecoach into the junk
yard of the things that were. But
the new romance runs deeper. It is
moro complex. It is the wonderful
story of the awakening, the rousing,
and tho stirring to action of a drowsy
old world that has just begun to find
itself and to feol its magnificent

The   Ghosts of  Abbotsford.
The attempt st making "a ghost of
Abbotsford" will probably end with
the lady to whom the name was applied. This lady, tho widow of John
Carmlchael, has just died at Edinburgh at the venerable age of eighty-
three. When a child she went ns
visitor to Abbotsford, nnd, losing her
way on one occasion, opened the
dining room door noiselessly. It so
happened that Sir Walter nnd his
guests were discussing the question
of the possibility of the appearance
|of a departed spirit, and the mysterious opening of the door at tha mom
ent won for the little girl the name
of "the ghost of Abbotsford." This
name she retained through life.
Another attempt at creating a
ghost at Abbotsford was doomed to
failure. Opposite to the entrance to
the library there is nn arched doorway leading to other rooms. It was
discovered that by an arrangement of
lights the shadow of a person under
the arch could be thrown on the opposite door with weird effect. But
Sir Walter, when called upon to witness the experiment, did not express
approval of it, for a reason that even
Lockhart could not guess. Scott's

A Series of Articles Describing their Lives, their Alms
and their Influence.
Editor and Proprietor of the Herald,
Oxbow, Saskatchewan.
This series of personal scotches of
well-known Westerti editors establishes
that in the prairie portion of Canada,
as everywhere else throughout the
American continent, the proprietor
of the typical country paper is almost
invariably a printer. His graduation
into journalism was by way of "the
case. Should he ever attain to the
dignity of armorial bearings, the
"stick" rat„er than pencil or pad,
would be his eraldic insignia. The
metropolitan newspaper man almost
always got into the profession hy
means of the notebook and pencil. He
started out as "cub reporter," after
contributing occasionally as a "space
man," and did rogular assignments
at the fire halls, the police station,
and making the daily rounds of hotels
to keep in touch with the travelling
public by means ol ..ie hotol registers.
His business, primarily, was that of a
news gatherer and news writer. Auy
knowledge of the mechanical departments of newspaper production was
incidental and secondary. But with
the representative country editor and
publisher mechanical knowledge preceded, generally hy many years, any
practice in newspaper writing. The
duIk of western country editors are
skilled printers, who in the course of
years have put by enough to purchase
perhaps largely on their credit, a
Washington press, a small jobber,
and the absolutely necessary cases of
body and display typo. From these
modest beginnings frequently commence some piost satisfactory business
enterprises. They grow with the
growth of the town or district in
which they are located, givo good in'
comas to their proprietors, and become at once the forum for the discussion of local affairs, and the highest arbiter s to Lie manner in wliich
those affairs aro dispose of. Frequently tho proprietor, in 'efence of
principles or policies advocated in his
papor, finds himself elected to municipal council or local legislature on
tho ground so taken, and cases are
frequent in Canadian history in which
newspaper men have thus become provincial or national figures.
A country publisher of this type,
and ono who may one day he as well
known throughout the whole of Saskatchewan as ho to-day is in his own
locality, is John H. Noble, editor of
proprietor of tho Ox now Herald.
Like the great majority of western
newspaper men, Mr. Noblo is a young
man, being not yet much past the
thirty mark. Also, like the great
majority of Western Canadian editors,
Noblo is an Ontarian by birth. He
was born in 1872 in Mulmur township, in Dufferin county. He is of
mixed Scotch and Irish descent, and
the salient characteristics of both nationalities are exemplified in his
shrewdness, caution and keen sense of
When five years of age, his parents
removed across the St. Clair river to
Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and
thore, ten years afterwards, he became an apprentice to the printing
tradjj, in which he has now been continuously engaged for nearly twenty
years. In that period he has work '
in many portions of the continent,
gaining insight and experience in
both the book and news departments.
Few men in the printing business in
Western Canada, nave as sound a
practical knowledge of all departments of the printing craft than Mr.
Noble. From the printing of a dodger
up through all grades of job work,
right up to the highest grades of
book printing, ho is an authority.
The thriving little town of Oxbow is
fortunate in that it has located therein a printer who, within the limits
imposed by tho smallness of his plant,
oan turn out work that invites comparison with that producod by metropolitan establishments.
It was early in March, 1903, that
Mr. Noble came to Oxbow to look ovor
the field with a view to starting a
newspaper.    So woll pleased    was    he
that year the Herald made its initial
| appearance and began its ever widening career of publicity and popularity.
| In typographical finish and mechanical make-up, the Herald is a credit tc i
any publisher. Its display faces'are1
selected with judgment, and the announcements of the Oxbow business
houses are set with core and taste.
The town is quite as progressive as
any in Wester Canada, and both
business men and farmers have been
quick to recognize and avail themselves of the advantages offered bj
there being established a paper devoted to the interests of. the locality.
And though, as set forth in the beginning of this article, the training oi
the editor of the Oxbow Herald has
always been along mechanical rather
than journalistic lines, yet he has
developed considerable skill in writing and presents to his readers the
chronicle of local happenings in a
manner of which no newspaper man
need be ashamed. Editorially the Herald is moderate in tone, steering a
middle line between the extremes ol
both political parties, except at election times, when its adhesion is determined rather by principles than by
party. The Herald has practically no
politics other than the highest good ot
the locality in which it circulates.
The increase in the business
of the Herald necessitated some
important improvements and additions
to the plant within two years after
its establishment. The paper is now
printed on a fine power cylinder
press, a new platen press has been put
in, and a gasoline engine installed. It is quite probable that
further betterments in the plant will
be necessitated shortly hy the increased volume of business being done.
Mr. Noble's popularity in his home
town and distriot is testified by the
fact that within eighteen months after having taken up residence therein
and upon its incorporation, he was
elected a member of its first couneil.
As may be judged from this fact, he
takes a incut interst in municipal
matters, and is a recognized authority
on such questions throughout southern Saskatchewan.
Mr. Noble's success is not only a
tribute to his personal qualities of industry, thrift, professional equipment
and general intelligence, hut also to
the opportunities offered hy tho country which he has made his home. Tc.
the printer, as to the farmer and busi
ness man, the WeBt is the land of op
portuiiity, a statement of which there
aro scores of men, like the editor oi
the Oxbow Herald, who demonstrate
tho truth.

Need   an   Occasional   Tonic   to   Maintain  Health and   Keep the
Skin Clear.
On every side one sees young men
and growing boys with pule, pasty
complexions, their faces covered with
pimples and their gato shambling and
listless. Such it condition is extremely dangerous—the blood is out
of ordor—a complete breakdown may
result. To put matters right; to
give thnt spring to the step, thut
oleariiess to the skin and that glow ol
health to the face, a tonic is needed—
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are needed.
As proof of this, Mr. Charles Diei'en-
thal, 12 St. Ursule street, Quebec,
Says: "Frequently my studies necessitated my remaining up until a late
litnir. The result was that my system
gradually weakened, and in December,
•11)03, I seemed to collapse. I was
bonrpletely run down und went nuclei
the care of a doctor, but instead of
gaining strength, I seemed to grow
weaker. I could not take solid food,
did not sleep well, and weakening
night sweats gave mc further cause
for alarm. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
wore brought to my notice and I began their use. Almost from the outset they seemed to help me, but it
was some weeks before there was a
material change for the better. From
that time on, however, recovery was
rapid, ancl in a couple of months 1
was as well as ever I had been, and
able to resume my studies."
Every doso of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills make new, rich, red blood; every
drop of pure blood gives strength and
vitality to the whole system, and this
strength brings health. That is why
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure such
cases as anaemia, all stomach and kidney troubles, St. Vitus dance, heart
palpitation, tho afflictions known only
to growing girls and women, and a
host of other ailments from which
both young and old suffer through
bad blood. Sold by dealers in medicine or by mail at 50 cents a box or

To What is Their Increasing Competition with Men In Business
Leading Us.
Nearly five million women go to
work every day, in the United States,
—go to paid work, whether the returns
be two dollars a week or ten thousand
a year. Sixty years ago Harriett Mar-
tineau, while visiting America, declared that she found here but seven
occupations for women: needlework,
teaching, taking boarders, typesetting,
employment in cotton mills, bookbinding, and domestic service. Now
there are scarcely seven occupations
closed to them; they are pouring into
the world of activities, and the five
millions will be six at the next counting.
Whether or not you or they like
tho change is wholly unimportant.
As someone has suggested, the early
ooliippus may have resented changing
into a horse and his neighbors may
have greeted his development
in tho matter of hoofs and legs
with acidly critical comment; but,|
when once started horseward, nothing
could stop him: he had to adjust himself to the outer conditions that demanded one concentrated toe in the
place of five. In the same way woman
is being swept along in a great, vague,
irresistable wave of economic change
when she turns her face down town in
the early morning.
She will pass an alarmist uttering
his dismal note on every corner: his
warning is prophetic of lost charm,
lost power, and lost position. One declares that presently man will cease
altogether to support woman, if this
thing goes on increasing, and then
how about homo and mother P The
answer to that—not new, but worth
lopeating—is thut man never has supported woman. To support means tc
provide with the necessaries ot life.
Who was doing the larger share ol
this, the man who raised and sheared
the sheep, or tho woman who curded,
spun and wove the wool, and cut nud
sewed the clothes?—the man who shot
the bird or the woman who plucked
and cooked it?—tho man who provided
tho yarn or the woman who knit the
stockings? It is a fairly even matter
this "support," in tho days when most
of tho human needs were worked out
undor each individual roof,
saries are bought instead of made, and
Iu humbler homes, where the neces-
yot there is but one source of money,
wo often get a picture of a shriveling,
Careworn lather staggering under a
weight of strumming, enibroi ering
spcii,lin" daughters that makes us rejoice in thut swelling five million at
their gainful occupations. How can
they do it, these kindly, careless girls,
and what will become of them when
they havo worked their victim to
doath? Surely some change in a system that allows such uneven burdens
noed not mako us fear a lessening ol
woman's intrinsic valuo; she will have
gained in overy sense when she becomes ashamed to rest her hoalthy
young weight on overburdened shoulders. That by going to work she compotes with man and reduces his earnings, is a problem for professional
economists to struggle with; though it
has been suggested that, as a producer, she always has competed with man
and reduced his earnings, whether she
wove her own clotlies or earned them
with a typewriter.—Juliet Wilbor
Tompkins, in "Success Magazine."
U.S. May Build   Leviathan   of  20,000
Washington. —In the discussion oy
tho naval experts concerning the designs of the battleships to be author-
iaed ut the present session of Congress,
there is already observed a difference
of opinion concerning the displacement.
Tlie general board is in favor und has
urgently recommended a displacement
of 13,000 tons, as comparing with the
10,000 tons displacement, plan, which
is considered inferior to battleships of
more recent design now under construction by Great Britain, France
and Russia. It is believed, however,
that the 2,000 tons additional displacement is not sufficient; at least,
such an opinion is expressed by certain naval officers, including Rear-Ad-
iniral Capps, the chief constructor ol
tho navy. It is pointed out that if
the displacement of the new battleship
is to be increased, it might as well be
made 20,000 tons. II is considered
that the 2,000 tons extra will not give
the benefit of speed and increased battery which will compensate for the
extra cost of the enlargement. It is
evident that the discussion of this
point will bo m/ost interesting, and
that out of the agitation will develop
a battleship in tnis country which will
surpass in size, speed, protection and
armament, a ything of the same class
designed or building abroad. Each
year these advances in battleship designs have been considered as marking the end of their development, but
each year some new feature has been
adopted so that it is considered that
the development of the battleship has
by no means terminated. The matter
is still under consideration by the naval authorities, and it is expected that
even after a definite decision has been
reached, the fight over the tonnage
_nay be carried right into congress.
Mr. Meldrum Stewart Telia
Clocks are Kept Right.
At the meeting of the Boyr.l Astronomical Society ot Canada a paperj
was read on the time service at the
Dominion Observatory at Ottawa by
Mr. II. Meldrum Stewart, M.A., who
is in charge of the service. Everyone,
from the railway management to the
man on the street,, is ultimately dependent on some observatory clock.
The method of determining the time
from the stars was explained, and also the essentials of a good clock. Thej
ultimate standard at the observatory
winds itself np electricallv every half-
minute. It keeps time with the stars,
and so is called a sidereal clock. The
chief mean-time clock whicll keeps
ordinary time_, is checked daily by
comparison with the sidereal clock.
By electrical means this clock controls
a clock in each of the government
buildings, and these again actuate
dials placed in each of the rooms.
Four insulated wires run from the
Observatory to the oity for this
purposo. At present there are 42 diah
in the Parliament Buildings, GO in the
West Block and 48 in the Langevin
Block. These, with a few others
make up a total of 214 dials.

Thousands of Rats,
plague   at   Osaka, Japan, ac
cording to mail advices received by
the steamship Aragonla, has proved
a benefit to at least a portion of the
-habitants of the city, ln that It has
provided them with a new and profitable industry ln rat catching. The
bounty on the rodents, which have
been proved exclusively to carry the
infection, has been recently increased
to seven sen a head—two sen being
tho equivalent of an American cent—
and now more than 3000 rats are said
to be brought in dally.
More than 1,500,000 rats have been
handed over by rat catchers since the
purchase of the rodents was begun a
little more than a year ago. In eight
months, according to official reports,
338 rats have been found in Osaka
containing the plague bacilli. In one
day 23 of the rats brought in were
found to be infected.
Owing to such precautions as these
taken by the Japanese authorities
and carried out with a thoroughness
which would put an Occidental health
officer to shame, the plague, though
xlstent for somo months, has never
assumed alarming proportions.

hero aro many other reasons why tho
Chatham Incubator and Brooder outclasses

The hen sets when she is ready. The Chatham Incubator Is always ready. By planning
to take off a hatch at tlio right time, you may
have plenty of broilers to sell when broilers
aro scarce and prices at tho top notch. If you
depend on the hon, your chicks will grow to
broilers just whon every other hen's chicks are

Tlio Chatham Brooder behaves itself, Is a

and is not infested with lice.
Altogether, thoro is absolutely no roasonablo
reason for continuing the use of a hen as a
