CII.il  i_-    VII.
HE Thomas Doane was at ber
dock In .New York, and Bradley, now twenty years old and
a "rure enough" second mate,
was ou hor deck watching the foremast
bands clearing up the coal dust that begrimed everything. The schooner bad
carried coal for over a year uow, nnd
her latest occupation had not improved
ber appearance. Slie wus old enough before and patched and mended enough,
and to turn her into a collier seemed a
final humiliation. Captain Titcomb had
felt it keenly, and his disgust was outspoken.
"Well, by crlmustee!" he had ejaculated wben bis tlatfooted rebellion
had been smothered by' another raise
ln salary. "I used to dream about
commandln' a Australian clipper some
day or 'nother, but I never dreamed
that I'd come to be skipper of a coal
hod, and a secondhand, rusted out.
coal hod at that. Blessed if it ain't
enough to make the old man—dad, I
mean—turn over in his grave! Come
on, Brad. Let's go to the theater. I
want to forglt It."
The captain bad another project ln
his mind, a sort of secret hobby be
hinted at every llttle while, but never
told. These hints usually followed a
particularly disagreeable trip or when
the rickety Thomas Doane behaved
even more like a cantankerous old maid
than was ber wont Then, when he
and Bradley were alone, the captain
would wake from a day dream to say:
"Brad, I git more and more sick of
this bein' somebody else's errand boy
every minute. Some of these days I'm
goin' to take a whack at somethln'
di-'rent, and I bave a notion what
'twill be too. I guess likely I may ask
you to come in with me I b'lieve it's
a good notion. Tell you 'bout It some
day." ,
But he never did.
Bradley had grown tall and broad
during his term of cruising. He
had learned self reliance, and his
voice had a masterful ring. When he
went back to Orham nowadays the
old maids took special delight In having him escort them to church, and
Miss Tempy's eyes during the sermon
were oftener fixed upon him than upon
the minister. The money that he sent
the sisters amounted to something
now, and he had an account In the
savings bank.
Now, as he stood by tbe rail, with his
hands in his pockets, he heard a step
on the wharf behind him and turned
to see Captain Titcomb Jump from the
strlngpiece, catch the shroud and
swing aboard. The captain's usually
good natured face had a scowl on it,
and he was plainly not happy.
Bradley touched his cap. "How are
things going up at the office?" he
"Plumb to the devil," was the short
reply. Then, glancing up at the young
man's face and looking hurriedly away
again, he added: "Come aft I want
to talk to you."
Seated In the dingy cabin, the captain took a cigar from his pocket, bit
off the end with a jerk nnd smoked in
great puffs. Bradley waited for him
to speak. The skipper's Ul humor and
obvious discontent bad come upon him
the afternoon of the day the Thomas
Doane reached port nnd had grown
steadily worse. Each morning Captain Titcomb had spent nt the office
of Williams Bros., and when he returned to the schooner he had done
,' little but smoke, scowl and pace the
deck. The second mate was worried,
but he asked no questions.
"Brad," said tbe captain, looking at
ithe shabby carpet on the cabin floor,
"we're goin' to hnve a new mate."
Bradley was surprised. "Is Mr. Bailey going to leave?" be asked. The
old flrst mate had been as much a
part of the Thomas Doane as her mainmast
"They've given him the Arrow, the
new schooner.   He's goin' to run her."
"Why. why. Cap'n Ezra, I thought
she was promised to vou."
"I thought so, too, but I missed my
reck'nln', It seems. Williams—he ain't
ha'f the mau his brother was—he
wants me to wait till the other one, the
four master, is off the ways. Tben I
can have her If I want her."
"But ahe won't be ready for six
months, though I guess from what I
hear she'll be worth waiting for.
Who'll have the old Doane then?"
Captain Titcomb crossed bis legs, but
didn't answer. Instead be asked:
"Brad, how would you like to sail under Bailey? You aad him got 'long,
first rate. I wouldn't wonder If I
could git you the second mate's berth
on the Arrow. She's bran new and
etea.lu_.-W__ U_£ tlU_s heucofip."   And he

Bradley did not hesitate. "I guess,
if you can staud the hencoop I cau," he
said decisively. "I'd rather wait with
you, thank you."
"I don't kuow's you'd better. Look
here." And for the. first time the captain raised his eyes. "You kuow I
wouldn't try to Influence you If 'twan't
for your own good. I honestly think
'twould be better for you if you sailed
on tbe Arrow."
"But why?"
"Oh, because! Bailey's a good man
and an Al sailor."
"He Isn't half tbe sailor you are nor
half the man either."
"Much obliged. I'll stand for the
sailor part, but 1 ain't so sure about
the rest. Brad, sometimes I wish I
hadn't stuck so close to 'owuers' orders' and had took a few observations
on my own hook. Maybe then— Bnt
It's hard for an old dog to learn new

"A good many folks seems to think

"And other folks don't think nny tie
less of 'em for lt Well, I've laid my
course, and I'll stick to lt till all's
blue. Brad, will you, ns a favor to
me, chuck up your berth here and
ship 'board the Arrow?"
"Cap'n Ez, lf you want me to quit
this packet you'll have to heave me
overboard; that's all!"
The skipper looked at the clear eyes,
and the firm jaw of the young six'
footer opposite.
"That goes, does it?" he asked.
"That goes. Cap'n Ez, you've been
the best friend I've ever had, except
the old maids and—maybe one more. I
don't want you to think I'm not ambitious, because I am. I'm just as
anxious to make something of myself
as you can be to have me, but I've
made up my mind, and, for the present, anyway, while you sail a vessel I
sail with you—unless you really order
me to quit"
Tbe older man hesitated. "Well," he
said after' two or three puffs at the
cigar, "I ought to order lt p'r'aps, but
I'll be hanged If I can. Brad Nlekerson, I tblnk ns much of yon as I

Puzzled and troubled, Bradley extended his hand, and the captain
clasped it firmly in his own. For a
moment lt seemed that he was about
to say something more, but be did not
Giving the second mate's hand a
squeeze, he dropped It and settled
back in his chair, smoking and apparently thinking bard. As be thougbt his
lips tightened, and the scowl settled
more firmly between his brows. Five
minutes of silence, and then tbe skipper threw the half finished cigar Into
a corner and rose to his feet. His tone
was sharp, and there was no trace of
the feeling so recently manifested.
"We sail tomorrir mornln'," he said,
stepping to tbe companion Indder.
"The new flrst mate'll be here tonight

Bradley did not move. "Just a minute, Cap'n Kz," be faltered. "You—you

.He .went on deck immediately, jj.ni].
alter a moment'Braffiey rcTiowetr nrm.
The rebuff was so unexpected and so
undeserved, the circumstances considered, that it hurt tbe young man
keenly. His pride was touched, and
be made up his mind that Captain Titcomb should bave no further cause for
complaint so far as Interference by his
second officer was coucerned. As for
the captain, be kept to himself and said
little to any one during the afternoon.
The new first mate came on board
that evening. He was a thick set.
heavy man, who talked a groat deal,
swore profusely and laughed loudly at
his own jokes. He seemed to kuow his
business uud, as tbe captain would
have said, "caught hold" at once.
Tbey sailed the next morning, and,
by tbe time the tug left them, Bradley
fancied thnt he noticed a difference In
the state of affairs aboard tbe schooner.
The usual rigid discipline seemed to be
lacking. There was no rebellion or
sign of mutiny, but merely a general
«biftlessness tbat Mr. Burke did not
seem to notice. Strange to say, Captain
Titcomb did not notice it either, or, lf
he did, said nothing. Bradley did not
Interfere. He bad not forgotten the
advice to "obey orders and ask no
questions." '•
There was a good wind nnd a smooth
sea, and the captain drove the Thomas'
Doane for all she was worth. By the
afternoon of the following day they
were in Vineyard sound. Bradley's
suspicions had by this time come to be
almost certainties. For two or three
sailors to show signs of drunkenness
on tbe first morning out of port was
nothing strange, but to have those
symptoms more pronounced the evening of tbe second day was proof that
there were bottles In the fo'castle. But
Captain Titcomb, usually the first to
scent the presence of these abominations and to punish their owners, now,
apparently, was unaware of their presence. And the first mate, too, either
did not see or did not care.
Bradley was standing by the fo'castle
Just at dusk that evening wben a sailor
bumped violently Into him ln passlug.
The second mate spoke sharply to tbe
offender, and the answer he received
was impudent and surly.
"Here you," exclaimed Bradley, seizing tbe man by the shoulder and whirling him violently around, "do you know
who you're talking to? Speak to me
again like that, and I'll break you ln
The man—he was a new hand—mumbled a reply to the effect that be
"hadn't meant to say nothln'."
"Well, don't say lt again. Stand up.
You're drunk. Now, where did you get
your liquor?"
"Ain't got none, sir."
"You're a liar. Stand up or you'll lie
down for a good while. Anybody with
a nose could smell rum lf you passed a
mile to wiud'ard.   Wbere did you get
The sailor began a further protestation, but Bradley choked It off and
shook him savagely. The first mate,
hearing the scuffle, came hurrying up.
"What's tbe row, Mr. Nlekerson?" he
"This man's drunk, and I want to
know where the rum came from."
Mr. Burke scowled fiercely. "Look
here," he shouted, "ls that so? Are you
drunk ?"
"No, sir."
"You're mighty close to lt Why"—
and here the first mate swore steadily
for a full minute. "Do you know whut
I'd do to a man tbnt brought rum
aboard a vessel of mine? I'd use his
blankety-blnuked hide for a spare
tops'! and feed tbe rest of his carcass
to tbe dogfish. Git out of here, and remember I'm watchln' you sharp."
He gave tbe fellow a kick that sent
him flying, and, turning to Bradley,
said In a confidential whisper: "Ain't it
queer bow a shore drunk'll stick to a
man? I've seen 'em come aboard so
full that they stayed so for a week
"I think they've got the liquor dowu
for'ard here."
"I guesB not. If I tbougbt so, I'd kill
the whole"—half dozen descriptive adjectives—"lot They cau't play with
me, bluiik, blank 'em!"
But lu spite of Mr. Burke's fierceness Bradley wusu't satisfied. He believed that If the first mate bud let
blm alone he would have found the
liquor. However, be thought If neither tbe Bkli'.'cr nor Mr. Burke cared
It was none ot bis business. But be
was uneasy nevertheless.
By tl o'clock the signs of drunkenness were so plain that even the flrst
mate hud to admit the fact Only a
very few o* the men were strictly sober. One of these was the big Swede,
Swensen. Oddly enough, this man bad
stuck to Captain Tltcomb's schooner
every voyage since oue trip on which
tbe skipper bad knocked the fight out
of bim. Tbe novelty of a good Bound
thrashing was, apparently, Just what
the giant had needed, and for the man
who bad "licked" him he entertained
tremendous respect and almost love.
"Cap'n Ez, be knock the tar out of
me," said Swensen. "He stand no
foollu'.   He's a man.   Hey?"
He liked Bradley, too, and had presented the latter with a miniature model of,a three masted schooner In a
bottle, beautifully done and such "puttering" work that It waa a wonder bow

(To Be Continued)
Experiment* Show That It ls*a Valuable Ration For Fowls.
A writer in the American Poultry
Advocate has the following to say of
the value of skim milk as a partial
ration for fowls:
The West Virginia experiment station hns recently made some systematic tests to prove the vulue of
skim milk for laying hens. The first
test covered 122 days. The twenty-
two hens fed skim milk laid 1.2+4 eggs
as compared with '.196 eggs laid by the
twenty-two hens fed mash wet with
water. In nuotber test sixty heus fed
the skim milk ration laid 802 eggs in
thirty-seven days as compared with
632 eggs laid b.v a similar lot fed no
skim milk. Otber tests gave nbout
the same comparative results. The
conductois of these experiments estimate thnt under the prevailing conditions and with eggs selling for 20 or
25 cents per dozen the skim milk used
for moistening the mash bad a feeding value of from 1% to 2 cents per
quart. That milk ls one of tbe best
general foods for almost all stock and
human beings, too, ls recognized by
everybody and needs no special proof.
That it should hove better results ln
nutrition than just plain water ls really self evident When I feed skim
milk to my fowls. I do expect to get
some benefit fiom lt But It Is a
satisfaction to kuow that lt ls worth,
for feeding purpores, the comparatively high figure of iy_, or 2 cents a quart
At the Ontario experimental farm
some tests of tbe value of skim milk,
whey, etc., as an addition to grains
for fattening poultry have recently
been conducted. From a summary of
data on the relative value of whey,
skim milk and numerous feeds for fattening chickens it appears that <aln
was most cheaply made on a mixture
of equal parts of cornmeal, oatmeal
and shorts mixed with whey, the cost
being 4 cents per pound, snd was
most expensive (0 cents per pound) on
a mixture of equal parts of cornmenl,
shorts nnd oatmeal, with 30 per cent of
pork scrap, water being used to wet
up the ration. It was found that sour
skim milk (milk that Is thickened) ls
without doubt tbe best liquid to mix
with grain rations where a uniform
product is wanted and more so whero
white fleshed chickens are ln demand;
also that sweet skim milk has not so
high a feeding vnlue for grown chickens as sour milk nnd that whey Is a
better food than is generally considered.   It seems to aid digestion.        .
Liquid Lie* Killers.
As a general rule, the commercial
liquid lice killers are more dependable
and satisfactory than homemade kerosene mixtures. However, the following combinations will be found reliable
lf carefully used: A saturate solution
of crude naphthalene flakes in kerosene, made by dissolving ln kerosene
all lt will take up of crude naphthalene flakes, makes an effective lice
paint and is a good remedy for scaly
leg. Two fluid ounces of any coal tar
disinfecting liquid mixed with a gallon of kerosene Is an effective lice
paint for destroying red mites and
coop lice. Either of these preparations
used as a liquid lice paint nbout tbe
roosts and dropping boards should be
applled In the forenoon or before the
middle of tbe day, so that they will
thoroughly dry Into the woodwork be
fore the fowls go to roost
Preparing Broilers For Market
A fat broiler Is quite a rarity. The
best that can be done ln general ls to
have them plump, for the natural tendency of tbe chick ls to use all nutriment for growth and development
When tbe birds are nearly large
enough for the market, they should lie
given all the fattening feed they will
eat and for Ibis purpose corn In various forms should be fed freely. They
will digest more feed if fed ground
than lf whole or cracked. A moistened
mash consisting of nbout two-thlrcL
commcal and one-third bran by bulk
Is good. Cooked potatoes are good
and milk, wltb a llttle sugar added
will hasten fattening.
Liver Trouble In Fowls.
When a few hens lu a flock show
symptoms of advanced stages of liver
trouble. It Is reasonable to conclude

Vandeleur Honors Men Who Built Up-

An unusual msmorial was unveiled)
at Vandeleur, Grey County, on IJbm-

builders of that region.
The monument bears the following;
"1857-1907. To the founders of S. S.

honest intention and stability of purpose converted the primeval forest into homes for themselves and those-
that came after them. Erected by
their descendants."
Old-Age  Pensions.
A bluebook containing tables prepared on the question of old-age pensions and a memorandum embodying-
the conclusions of different commissions enquiring into the question, haa
just been issued.
The estimated total number of people of the age of 65 and over in England and Wales in 1907 is given as
1,616.000, of whom half a million may
be assumed to be pensionable. The
estimated cost of a pension of 5s. a
week for that number is £7,795,000.
Assuming that hnlf would be paid out
of Imperinl funds, the charge on the
rateB would be equivalent to 4.8d. in
the pound on aggregate assessable
These figures take no account of
cost of administration. The memorandum states thnt the only appreciable saving in Poor Law expenditure
by the establishment of old-aee pensions would be in outdoor relief. Tha
number of persons already pensioned
by the services, public bodies, or
friendly societies is over a quarter of;
a million.

From Two Ladles Who Have Been Cured of Extremely
Torturing Cases of Piles By
Dr. Chase's Ointment
Mrs. Geo. H. Simser, Grant, Russell
county, Ont., writes: "Eleven years
ago I began to suffer from piles, and
as they caused keen distress, and
became worse, I doctored for them,
but with little or no avail. They
were bleeding, itching and protruding, and oh I the torture I suffered
at times can never be described. It
was with suffering that the bowels
moved, and, as nothing brought relief, I could only endure the misery
with an aching heart and without
hope of cure.
"Finally a lady friend told me
nbout Dr. Chase's Ointment curing
piles, and to my surprise I felt relief
nt once on using this ointment; the
little tumors soon disappeared, the
ulcers healed, and the bowels became,
regular. This was five years ago, and
I have never been troubled with 1111-5
terrible ailment since, a thousand
thanks to  Dr.  Chase's  Ointment."
Mrs. Capt. Clinansmith, Salvation
Army, Essex, Ont., writes: "It is
with pleasure that I write to you in
praise of Dr. Chase's Ointment.   Two
years ago I was taken with a severe
attack of protruding piles, and became so bad that I had to keep my
bed, and could lie in no position except on my stomach. Doctors could
give me no help, and the various
oils and ointments used proved of no
"One Saturday night, when I wns
suffering untold agony, my husband
went to the drug store for a box of
Dr. Chase's Ointment, which I had
heard of as a cure for piles. Although I had almost given up hope,
to the wonder of those around me, I
was able to be up and on my feet
by Monday, and have had no diffi-
cultv since. As a treatment for all
kinds of sores and burns, Dr. Chase's
Ointment works like magic."
To persons who have given up
looking for a cure of piles or hemorrhoids, this letter should bring new
hope. There is, we believe, no more
effective treatment for piles than Dr.
Chase's Ointment. 60 cents a box at

A Pastoral
" It -was a beautiful night. The
gentle zephyrs of the evening played
musically amid the silky leaves of
the turnip trees and the onion bushes, and wafted from across the distant fields the delicate fragrance of
the growing cabbages and the far-off
odor of the bean trees.
"Betsy," he cooed, as they sat on
the rickety wooden fence surrounding
Mrs. Filligan's pigsty, " 'Ow bee-a-
vttiful is luv! Jes' think ov it,
Betsy. When we are married we'll
have a pig all on our own, all to ourselves."
"Willyum," she whispered, resentfully, "why should we want ter buy
a pig? I sh ant want ter buy a pig
when I've got yew!
Then all was silent once more, except that the gentle zephyrs still
played amid the fronds and cabbage
bushes and the silver-throated frog
still sang from the roof.—Reynolds'

A Clergyman's rail
In a small church in one of the mining towns of Pennsylvania, says the
Philadelphia Ledger, was a pulpit
both antique and unique. It was
about the size and shape of a flour
barrel, was elevated from the floor
about four feet and was fastened to
the wall. The ascent was by narrow,
winding steps.
A minister from a neighboring
town, a man of great vigor and vehemence, preached there one Sunday.
While preaching he bent forward and
shouted out with great force the
words of his text:—
"The righteous shall stand, but the
wicked shall fall."
Just as these words escaped from
his lips, the pulpit broke from its
fastening, and he fell out and rolled
over on the floor before his congregation. In an instant he was on his
feet again and said:
"Brethren, I am not hurt, and I
don't mind the fall much, but I do
hate the connection."

general use not only because of these
two qualities, but because it is known
to possess alterative and curative
powers which place it in the front

"Hugger-Mugger" Methods.
Lord Curzon, chancellor of Oxford
University, speaking at a banquet given in hia honor, after expressing the
opinion that tho trouble in India is
only skin deep, strongly criticized
what he described as Great Britain's
"unscientific hugger-mugger method of
administering the Empire." He said
that no country in the world had
such a reserve of experience 'and
authority in the art of civil Government, and made such little use of it.
The Colonial Ofiice, he said, was made
up of permanent officials, many of
whom had never set eyes on the colonies they administered, and he asked why there should not be an Imperial Council of some kind to assist
in their administration.

Is a Gosse a Bird?
In a decision by Judge Waite, the
Board of General Appraisers in Now
York have decided that Canadian
geese are not wild, and hence are
not to be deemed "birds" within the
meaning of the Dingley tariff act. The
issue directly affects the importation
of the geese in the New York market.
The collector assessed the geese fot
duty, as "live poultry" with duty at
the rate of three cents per pound,
whereas the importers insisted that
the geese should be admitted as
"birds" free of duty. Their conten.
tion was that the geese are wild, or
semi-wild. In denying the claim Judg*
Waite says: "The evidence shows
that the geese are kept by the farmers on their farms very much as fowiS
are generally kept, allowed to run in
the fields, and also kept within clo>
sures. The importers claim that they
are of a wild nature, and are a hybrid, resulting from the mingling of
the wild Canadian goose with the domestic goose. The simple fact that
they may contain some wild hlood
and have some wild tendencies would
not, we think, warrant us in finding
that thoy are free of duty as .claimed." The decision will probably have
the effect of raising the prices 01
geese to hotels, restaurants aud in
dividual consumers.

The Hero of Dargai.
The retirement of Col. Mathias, the
r.ian who led the Gordon Highlanders
when they stormed the Heights of
Dargai ten years ago, recalls a curious story of how he came to join
that famous regiment. The gallant
colonel is not a Scotsman, but a
Welshman, and it was owing to a slip
of the pan that he joined the renowned 75th Regiment. "I was intended,"
he, says, "to go into the old Si5th Regiment; but 9 and 7 are very much
ilike, and by a slip of the pen I was
gazetted to the 75th." A story is told
{--.earning Col. Mathias When he was
leading the famous charge at Dargai.
"Stiff climb, eh, Mackie*" he said,
breathlessly, to the color-sergeant by
his side. "I'm not so young as I was,
you know." "Never mind, sir," the
—jrgeant replied, "ye're going verra
strong for an auld mon."

"Jewls"! Marriage Custom.
"The Jeivs have a numbir of interesting marriage customs," says a vrit-
er in Cassell's Saturday Journal. "One
usually tikes place before the ceremony, and consists of a declaration
on the part of tlie bride that, should
her husband die before her, she will
not ell on his brother to marry her.
This i? required of her because by the
law ol Moses—which is still in force
—a widow has the right to make such
a claim on lier late husband's brother,
and because, though in n monogamous country like ours she could not
insi.'.t mi his espousing lier In the
event of his being already married,
she might make hi? position decidedly awkward. On the one hand, the
poor fellow ivou'd be hound by the
tics of religion to fulfill his obligation; on the other, he would be liable
ta imprisonment for bipniuy."

The strongest minds have gotten their
Inspiration direct from Nature. Nature
_ the great teacher of mankind. We
can look to Nature for all our needs. In
the recent pusso-Japanese war tho surgeons of the Japanese navy and army
discovered that wounds would heal more
rapidly and with bettor success if left ty
Nature. Thoy washed tho wounds with
water which had been boiled and thus
sterilized —then bandaged the wounds
with clean llnen--no powerful drugs or
autiscptlcs were used in thoir (test aid to
tho injured. Such methods resulted In
tbe loss of only 33 out ol 082 men treated
In a naval hospital for their wounds. It
Is only from lack of observing Nature's
laws that most of us suffer at one tiino
or another from Indigestion, Impure
blood and a generally run-down system.
Our remedy lies in Nature's laboratory-
deep in tho fragrant woods—where are
many American plants, the roots of
which when properly treated will supply a health-giving tonic ...
M;ui7 years ago n physician who had
an extensive practice among tlio alllicted'
made a striking departure from the usual
methods of his confreres In rnediclue—he
Vint straight to Nature for tbo cure of
thoso stomach disorders which resulted
so often In an amemic condition, or impure Mood, loss of appetite, pale or
pimply skin, feeling of !-s!tudo and
weakness. He found that the bark of
the Black Cherry-tree, the root of the
Miuidrako, Stone root. Queen's root,
Blnoilroot and Oolden Seal root, mado
Into a adontlflo, non-alcoholic extract by
the uso of glycerine, mado tho best alterative r.nd tonic. The refreshing influence
of this extract Is at onco apparent In tho
recovered str'-inrth of tho patient—tho
vital fires of thb body burn brighter and
thoir Increased activity consumes tho
tlssuo rubbish which otherwise may
poison the system. This alterative .md
tonia extract has been found to stand
nlone as u safe, Invigorating tonic, as it
doos not depend on'alcohol for a falso
stimulation, Dnt Is AT<—ure's own method
of strengthening and cleansing tha system. It tones up the stomach and tho
blood ln Nature's own way. It Is well
known ull over tho world as Dr. Pierce's
lioldnn Medical Discovery. Tho namo
was given to this vegetable compound
because one of tbe important Ingredients
was Oolden Seal root. * * * Such an
authority as Dr. Roberts Bsrtholow, of
Jefferson Medical Coller.e, says " vory use-
lul as a stomachic tonic. Giiros catarrh
of the stomach and headaches accompanying thn same." Dr. Grover Coo, In
his book Slrcranic Medicines, speaking of
Golden Seal"root, says that "as a livor
invlgorator it has few equate." Further
he says, "In chronic inflammation of tho
bladder we deem it one of the most roll-
abio agents of enro. A& a tonic in the
convalescing stages of fevers, pne.umoula,
dysentery and other acute diseases Hydrastis (Golden Seal root) Is peculiarly
for. Coe continues: "We would boro
add that our experience lias demonstrated the Hydrastis or Golden Seal root
to bo a valuable remedy i:i bronchitis,
laryngitis, nnd other affections of the
respiratory organs."
" Oi service in chronic catarrh of the
stomach nnd bowels following abuse of
iilrnhol, a tonic after malarial fever.
Has a distinct, anti-malarial Influence.
Good In all catarrhal conditions, as
utrriiio catarrh, leucorrhcea, etc. Is ,i
Curative agent In chronic dyspepsia."
—Hobart A. bare, JI. D., University
of Pennsylvania.
Prof. John M. Scudder In Specific Medication says: "It stimulates tho digestive processes) and Increases the assimilation of food; liy theso means the blood
_ enriched, uud this blood feeds tho
ninsclilar system. I mention the muscular system became I believe It lirst
feels the Increased power imparted by
the stimulation of increased nutrition.
The consequent Improvement ou the
nervous ami glandular systems aro
natural results,
In relation to Its gonerRl effects on
t.in system, there la no medicine in use
aboii. which therein such (lateral uniin-
imltl! of opinion. It li universally re-
gardi- as the tonic useful ln all debilitated states."
After many years of study and laboratory work Ur. R. V. Pierco produced
„io most happy combination of this
Golden Seal root with othor efficacious
roots—enhancing and Increasing ln curative power these native plants from oor
American forests by the addition of chemically puro glycerine, of proper strength,
which i3 far better than alcohol, both
for extracting and prosorvlng the medicinal principles residing ln plants. Glycerine Itsolf is useful In medicine to subdue inflaramatlou and by cleansing the
membrano of tlio stomach of abnormal
secretions aids In tho curo of dyspepsia,
and stomach and Intestinal troubles.

A Doubtful Question
At a dinner party a clergyman was

young lady who told him a long story
sof her aunt's narrrow escape from a
railway accident. "Owing to the congested traffic at the corner of Lane,"
ahe told him, my aunt just missed the
she told him, my aunt just missed the
train at Victoria, which was wrecked

"Will Find New Strength Throueh the
Use  of  Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills
A great many young men and wo-
_ien are suddenly seized with weakness.     Their    appetite    fails    them,
they tire on the least exertion, and
■become pale and thin.    They do not
ieel any specific pain—just weakness.
But that weakness is dungeious.    It
is a sign that the blood is thin and
watery;   that  it  needs    building   up.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will restore
lost strength  because   they   actually
make new, rich blood—they will help
j-ou.    Concerning    tliem  Mr.   Alfred
iLepage,  of  St.   Jerome,   Que.,   says:
■"For* several yean I have been employed in a grocery,  and up to the
_ge of seventeen I had always enjoy-
-d the best of health.    But "suddenly
any  strength   began   to  leave  me;   I
.grew pale, thin and extremely weak.
"Our family doctor ordered a complete
Test and advised  me  to remain out
vof doors as much  as possible, so  I
"went to spend several    weeks    with
an   uncle   who lived in the Lauren-
tides.    I  was  in  the  hope  that the
tracing mountain air would help me,
_ut it didn't,  and  I  returned  home
Sn a deplorable state.    I was subject
to dizziness, indigestion and general
weakness.   One day I read of a case
■very    similar    to    my    own    cured
through   the   use   of    Dr.    Williams'
Jink Pills, and I decided   to   give

A Sohool In Which Mothers Should B)
Taught  the Art. '
If a child Is told he must not do a
certain thing, no argument should
chauge tho verdict, aud If he disobeys
he must be made to pay a penalty ono
way or another.
He need not be treated with severity,
but he may bo deprived of some pleasure or privilege or toy and In that way
will lie made to uuderstand.
Indulgent mothers should remember
that they are treating unfairly and
unkindly the llttle creatures whom
they love most of all. Tour kind of
kindness Is not kindness at all.
You who are so careful what the
chtld puts Into his stomach should
watcb just as carefully what he puts
Into bis brain.
Through lack of proper teaching he

which will make It Impossible for bim

Think about It, will you?
The child, like the adult makes
friends, and the more tender your child
ls loved the better are his fortunes
likely to be.
Help your child to be splendid, unselfish, beautiful of character. There
are enough of the other kind In the
world, and It ls people of the better
sort thnt are needed.
There should be a school ln which
mothers should be taught the art of
bringing up their children.

What to Do When Things Are Lost In
Public Places.
When on leaving a theater, lecture
ball, etc., you discover that some valuable bas disappeared, do not lose your
head Immediately. There are, after
all Is said, many more honest people
In this world than dishonest, and the
chances are' that if yon go about lt
properly you will recover the article.
First of all, register your loss at the
box office or superintendent's room.
Give your name and address plainly,
being sure tbat they are correctly taken down, and If you wish to offer any
reward for Its return name the amount.
Be sure to leave money for the management to telephone you lf their
search Is rewarded and give your
telephone number. Then ask for some
one, or If this is not granted get permission yourself, to search the part of
the house ln which yon were sitting.
If after a day you have no word of
the loss, advertise in nt least one morning and one evening paper, naming the
articles explicitly, so as to avoid confusion. If you wish, you may name
the theater as the place to which It Is
to be returned. Most places are kind
and courteous in such matters and only
too anxious to help you In your search.
If they return the vnluable to you, do
not forget thnt the man who has acted
as their agent Is worthy of thanks at
least If you do not wish to reward him
In any more substantial way.
And, finally, If the lost article was a
piece of jewelry It would be well to
have a jeweler make tbe clasp stronger
to avoid further loss.

treasury annually. The manufacturing interests of Kokomo are damaged
more than ten times that amount by
the saloons."

THERE was great anxiety ln Rome.
The savage Gauls were approaching rapidly. Now that the enemy were almost upon them, the Romans forgot to be careless and began
to summon their legions. But they had
wulted so long that they were entirely
unprepared to resist their savage foe-
The old senator. Horatia's father, did
not despise the Gauls, as did the others.
He had fought against them, and he
knew that only well-trained soldiers
could hope to overcome their recklessness and bravery. The Roman legions
were no longer well  trained.
Tne senator had stowed most of his
valuable goods on a ship that lay near
the city, so that he could send them
and Horatia and her mother away,
while he stayed to fight for his country.
At last the Gauls had broken into
Rome, destroying everything that lay
In their pathway. In the meantime, all
was confusion at the senator's house.
Servants were running thiB way and
that, shouting and crying. Missing her
mother, Horatia became afraid and hid
herself in a big vase.
Soon the senator arrived, seeking
Horatia and her mother, to see that
they reached safety. As he passed the
vase he directed a slave to take lt to the
ehlp, as lt was very rare and valuable.
Not finding Horatia, the senator was
obliged to go back to his post.
On the ship Horatia's mother was
well-nigh   distracted.      How   glad   and
surprised she was to see the head of a
wee maiden peep out from a huge vase
brought on board by a slave, who never
knew what a precious burden he carried. Horatia wasn't lost, after all. But

Fido to see where his mother lives."
ONCE upon a time there was a
French duke who was anxious
to excel every other member
of the nobility living in his neighborhood.
The duke really was the best huntsman, he could tell the best story and
sing the best song. And he could
blow his hunting horn louder and
longer than any one else.
He so enjoyed winding his horn that
every morning he betook himself to
the highest turret of his castlo, and
there made himself blue ln tho face
by his tooting.
For the people who lived nearby It
was torture to hear this fearful din
each duy. Finally a count, who lived
near, hit upon a plan. He fastened a
huge horn on the parapet about his
r.oEtle, and stationed behind tt a
*iant blacksmith with a monster bellows.
When the duke blew his horn the
next morning he was greeted by a
louder blast from the count's castle.
Try as he would, he couldn't make
nearly so loud a sound as the horn
blown by  the bellows.
Imagining himself beaten by some
great rival, the duke would not be
comforted. His spirit was crush-d.
He Dined away and at last died.    ^

But no sooner did we take him homir

trills ccase-tj and the sweet little-
singer moped  in  his cage.
He didn't seem at all 111, and wo
couldn't think what the matter was.
It was llttle Elva who gave us a hint

The topic of interest for the past
few days has been the attempted robbery at the Vancouver Breweries
early Tuesday morning. Special
Constable B. .1. Berentson and Officer
Latimer, who were in the vicinity of
tho Brewery heard two shots, aud
hastened to the place. When they
reached the Brewery entrance four
men rushed out. the officers called
|Vg£_t," only to be shot at. Several
shots were exchanged without anyone getting damaged. After being
followed a block the robbers disappeared.
Mr. William Wblttmayr, tho night
engineer, stated that about one
o'clock in the morning he heard a
noise in the alley at the rear, and
going to the door found a number of
revolvers thrust Into bis face by
men wearing handkerchiefs over the
lower part of their faces. Whitt-
mayr's hands were promptly tied behind him, and he was warned to
make no noise and lead the way to
the safe. One of the men stayed
with him and covered him with a revolver while the other two went to
work ou tho safe. They first Inserted a charge in the bottom of the
safe, and theu retired until it exploded. The shock bent in the door
of the safe, but the lock held firm.
They then tried a charge iu tbe top,
but while thia crumbled up the plates
in the door, it did not open the safe.
The approach of the officers caused
tho alarm to be givon, and all the
robbers bolted without any booty.
Tho Brewery does not keep auy large
sums in its office, snfe.
Tho police station was notified and
tliA auto patrol came up, and the
benzine buggy stalled at Seventh and
Westminster avenues for some time,
until the chug-chug took a notion to
This attempted robbery is another
added to the many instances of a like
nature in the past, In which the lack
of proper police protection for this
part, of the city has been shewn in a
glaring manner.
