Tlio stern, obsequious servant hkII"-
ering in tho merry guests thut were
gathering nt Cray-stone Hull to participate in Bonnylin Dare's Hallowe'en party, had suddenly encountered
an uninvited guest—un illy clud
stranger attempting to smuggle
herself in with the throng.
"Who are you, nnd what nre you
doing lure'.'" he demanded, hnisiiuc-
ly, confronting her.
'For the Iovo Ol Heaven let mo
pass," murmured tho young girl
pitcously. "1 must see Aliss Bonnylin Dure."
"Must," repeated the mun, contemptuously,' "ilnii'ii pii'ily good;
but let mo tell you—you won't sen
her to-night. Como, move on; don't
stund hero making a scene nnd
blocking up the entrance. Tilovc on,
I say."
"I must seo her!" retorted tho
girl, breathlessly; "if you refuse mo,
you will regret it to your dying
"Neither threats nor persuasions
will prevail," declared the man angrily; "whatever yonr business is, it
must keep until to-morrow. Vou
cannot see her to-night, that's certain."
With n ery of frenzy sho attempted
' to dnsh past hiin; but the inun
caught her slender arm in a grasp
of steel.
"I believe you "tire an escaped lunatic," ho declared angrily. "I hnvo
tho greatest mind In the world to
hand you over to the authorities."
Tho beautiful girl grew deathly
pale, nnd she recoiled with a low,
startled cry, her while hands clutching nervously nt her henrt.
-,t "I hnvo done no hnrm," she panted, struggling to free herself from
his grasp, "if you won't let mc see
her, release mo and I will go nwny."
"I shall see that you do not hnve
tho thnnco to do any harm," lie answered, forcing her down the serpentine path, and through the gnte of
a side entrance thut opened out into
a lane.
"Now, go," he said, releasing his ,
hold of her arm. %
Once freed from his grasp, she
turned upon hiin with the fury of a
young, panther, crying out hoarsely:
"Tha timo will come when you will
look bnck to this night and this
hour, with a curse on your lips. You
will remember—ny, and bitterly, too
—how a desperate stranger pleaded
with you to speak with Donnylin
Daro for one minute—only one little
minute—this Ilnllow-o'en night. It
was not much out of a lifetime, nnd,
you refused. Oh, you will rmncmlioi'
it to the last day of your life."
Rcforc  tlie  astonished  mnn    could
open his lips, she had wheeled about,
f t.nd in nn instant was lost, to sight
amidst    the   'dense    shadow'1 of the
beech trees,
"Pshaw!" ho muttered, hurrying
swiftly up the path to the house
again. "I shall puy no attention to
such nonsense."
As ho reached the corridor, glancing up, he saw a slender, girlish figure enveloped in sky-blue tulle, nnd
a lovely, dimpled face framed in
floating golden hnir, leaning over tho
halustrodo of the floor nhove, looking down upon him curiously.
"Who wus that poor creature,
John, and what did she wnnt?" sho
nsked, coming down the stairway
two steps nt a time.
"Oh, it was only a 'crank' who
Wanted to get into tho house, Miss
.sonny. I sent lier about her business," replied John, reddening uncomfortably beneath tlie scrutiny of
tha girl's .keen, spurkling blue eyes.
"You should hnve sent no one fron;
tho door on Hallow-eve," she declared imperiously, "its unlucky. No
doubt tho poor thing was hungry —
you should have sent ber to the servants' hall."
"I'm sorry," begnn John, npolo-
geti-nlly; hut the little beauty cut
I.im drift with a wave of n mite ol
a while hand.
"Consult 1110 in future," she snid;
"it's a sliunie to have dancing nnd
feasting going on. nnd a poor creature like thut. looking on—perhaps
hungry—out side of the gatos."
At lhat instant the iiiimo Le Roy
Plcrpont was announced; nnd before
Bonnylin Ham could mnko her cscapo
from tlio corridor, a tall handsome
yonng fellow had come quickly up
to her, a pair of strong while hands
were clasping her own, a pair of
laughing, splendid dark eyes wero
looking down into hers, while a
thrilling voice murmuri'd musically:
•liuii,,y, my Ititlo dnrllngt"
"How you frightened me. Lo Hoy,"
sho said, drawing her hands nwny
Irom hiin, and lookii  ; up Into     his
handsome face uiih a stnllo hnlf
sniicy, hnlf roguish—wholly irresist-
lliln. "Why. 011a would think WO had

"You    havo    not missed me then,
Bonnylin?"  ho answered,   in  evident
pique;   "to  1110  the  lust  week       has
seemed like seven years. We arc nov-
j'cr to  part again,  Ilonny,"    ho went
.on eagerly,  "for By this time     next
•week you will  he iny bride. Yet,
"somehow, I shnll never feel quite
sure of you until wo stand at tho altar together. I have an intangible,
iindciiunlilo fear that I may lose you
even then. You must never prove
false to rao, Donnylin," he cried, "for
If you should 1 should he templed to
kill you—then kill myself."
"Oh, forgive nie, my darling," ho
pleaded, us she drew back from him
wilh a startled cry. "For a moment
tho Idea overpowered me, and 1
was mad enough to utter the wild
thought that rose up in m.v heart.
'You will never give me cause for
jealousy,  will  you,  my darling?"  ho
vent on, in his deep, winning tone.
"ft would serve you right if I
-llo'tild," declared llonnyllii, cresting
•hir lovely golden head, ami giving
hint a scornful look out. of n pair of
ihc prettiest blue-bull eyes in tho
whnla witlo world—nntl curling her
rosebud mouth into a pout thnt was
over so sweet.
"It would kill mc if you did,"    he
,_responded hotly.   "Ynu  kuow my besotting  sin—.iculnuiy-  I'.oiinyliu.       It
runs In the fumliy lilood; why, when
1 met Soverno on the porch outside,
1 fell, like thrashing him. 'What is
that fellow doing here?' I snid to
myself; 'surely Bonnylin could not
have invited  him  here  to-night.' "
"And why not?" del-fended Donny,
briskly. "He Wns poor pupa's best
friend. Of course I sent him nn invitation, but, really. I am a littlo
suipriscd thnt he came to-night; lie
is so much of a recluse, you know."
"Ho is a hermit and a miser," responded Lo llo.v Plcrpont, impatiently, "und ns for being a friend of your
father's—I do nol credit th.it. Soverno could lie no mail's friend. Ho

years. Bach Wus fated to meet a
tragic death ere the honeymoon wus
ivi-ll over. 1 lnwo m.v doubts wlu-.hel'
one renlly lost her life iu the railway
accident he lolls about, and that another Was thrown from her horso;
tho next fell dead in her pew at
church, and tho last nnd most beauteous of them all tlied abroad. This
man, who proves so dangerously fascinating, ought never to have entered these doors—no good can come
of it, Donnylin, my heart tells mo
"Wo must not believe that absurd
rumor about tho d I (for ont brides. I
am sure it is all a base fabrication.
Ah! here ho comes now. I must bo
civil to him, Le Hoy; remember he is,
my guest."
Handsome Le Hoy Plcrpont turned
on his heel with something very like
nn imprecation on his lips, nnd
strode away, leafing Bonnylin standing alone under a blossoming nlo'e-
trco awaiting the approach of the obnoxious guest.
There was not a prettier girl in all
Virginia than Donnylin Dare as sho
slood there amid the blossoms, tho
light from the clinndelier falling upon her slender figure robed
in floating       sky-blue tulle,
nnd        her        pin't        and whito
dimpled, saucy, rosebud face framed
in a halo of golden, curling hair.
Donnylin had n strange history for
a girl of seventeen, nnd a most ro-
I mantle one. She hud been left au
' oiphnn in infancy—or so the noto
stated wliich had been found pinned
to her person—for she had been a
stray waif, found on the doorstep of
the village seminary one summer
A sum of money was found among
her effects, wliich, the note stated,
wns for the purpose of educating
her; and whnt was stranger still, a
deed was found, conveying to tho
child n stone house nnd a tract of
land in the western part of Virginia.
"Many years ago, this place was
(he home of one of tlio Dares," the
note load, "und no doubt it will
oue day become the refuge of this
little one, who bears the name Don-
nvlin Dare."
The trustees of the school kept the
child, and for her benefit made every
effort, to let the house during tbo
years that followed, but to no
No family could be found who
would remain in the gray house tho
fust month out; each and every tenant left hurriedly and in grent confusion, nnrl no persuasion could induce them to divulge the reason
At Inst the attempt to let it Wns
abandoned altogether, and it was
given up to decay. dust, nnd tho
mold  of accumulating years.
Thus iho matter stood when Donnylin searched her sixteenth birthday.
She had grown up inlo the merriest little madcap Imaginuble — a
mixture of good ami bad, Willi a
nature ns variable as April storm
and sunshine.
A willful, cnprlcious daring, quick
to Iovo nnd ns quick to hate; quick
in resenting evil, and always in .a
startling and novel wny, yet always
deeply repentant for causing pain
the instant nfler, and begging in
tears lo lie forgiven.
Full of faults, yet so winning nnd
gny, no one could love her the less
for tliem.
Always rushing headlong inlo mischief; her latest escapade had been
running awuy from school, turning
up one tine morning ct the home of
a friend snme fifly miles distant.
For this last unpardonable offence Donnylin hnd been .summarily
discharged from Ihe seminary and
forbidden  to return.
1 he money which was left to her
account was sent her, together with
tho deed of Ihc old grny-slone house.
No more school, no more lessons,
no more study nn long summer days.
Donnylin was jiihilcnt over the
"Madame Thome, the cross old
tiling. thinks this will bring ine
hack post-haste, mid tbnt 1 will
lie begging on m.v knees to be taken
back, and that 1 will have had
such a scare over Ibis dismissal I
will be good aud docile over after;
but she don't know me," ilonny declared. "Why, 1 feel just like a
bird who has flown out of lis cngo
when the door was left njat, and
funis himself suddenly out in Hid
great, beautiful, wide world, where
he belongs."
Dohliylln counted over the roll of
bank-notes inclosed.
"Twelve hundred dollars I" she
cried out in dismay. Why, it's a
fortune—und docs all this really belong to 111c?"
".So it seems," answered her school
friend, Theodora Trento.
"Do you know what I am going
to invest lt In?" snld llonnylin,
with flushed .hooks und shining eyes.
"It will give 1110 tho one great longing wish of my life—It will tako 1110
to Europe* nntl back."
"What—alone?" cried Theodora,
" Why, no, of course not, you
gnose, "laughed Donnylin, merrily.
"I sliull induce thnt poor assistant
teacher who lost her place in the
village Bchool yesterday to no with
mo as companion, friend, chaperon
—anything you like. We Can go
over In one stenmer ami come hack
in "the next. Then I'm going to
Oraystono Hull to live ever nfter."
It was the maddest scheme that
was over carried out, but it Was
carried    out,    although    Dounylln's
alarmed friends felt a tin1- DCtter
satisfied knowing the young madcap
had not gone alone.
Holon Rochester bad gen. with
her. ,
It was on the return trip that
Donnylin mot her fate.
The steamer had scarcely steamed
out, of port ere Bonnylin became
aware of tho presence of a very
handsome young man leaning carelessly against the rails of the dock,
standing scarcely ten feet from her,
gazing at hor in intense admiration.
For one fleeting instant the 1 hie
eyes und black oiv.'s met in a swift
glance; then Bonnylin turned nway
was a confused blush.
The gentleman smiled.
In vain he sought to ingratiate
himself In the good graces of the
elderly lady who had 1 barge of the
Utile beauty booked us Donnylin
But Miss Rochester coldly repelled
tho handsome young gentleman's
overtures toward acquaintance, and
Le Hoy Pierpont, the Boston mil-
lioliatro's son, who had never known
wish ungratifiod in his life, was
consequently  in  despair. I
Many 011 shipboard would have
found un excuse lo have spoken to
their inamorata, but young Mr.
Pierpont was a gentlemen, preferring
the only correct formula—an introduction.
Ho appealed to the captain, but
win n Aliss Rochester was broached
on the subject, a decided objection
was the result.
She declined on the ground lhat
her charge was by far too young for
gentlemen's society.
Of course llonnylin knew nothing
of all this, and spent her time between anger and pique, watching bi>-
hinil her long golden lushes tho handsome, winning stranger, who was always gazing at lier with eager admiration, but who held aloof so
lt was certainly a case of reciprocal, nrdent love between these two
at first sight, for ninny a night
Ilonny's lovely blue eyes were wet
with tenrs as she tossed restlessly
on her pillow, listening to the wash
of tho waves outside; and a longing
wish came to her lhat the steamer
might sail on forever, for when it
came into port nnd Iho handsome
stranger disappeared nnd sho should
soo him no more, a cold, chilly
blight would fall over hor life, for
sho  had learned to love him.
It is quite true that love laughs
nt. locksmiths, for true and loving
hearts will find their mates in spite
of every obstacle.
Matters might have gone on forever in this very unsatisfactory way
if Fate had not trjl.cn tho affair in
hor own hands and smoothed out
the rough path leading theso two
together, yet it happened in a tragic
I way.
Ono night,  in the very face of the
terrible storm that. Wns raging, Ron-
I ny   had   stolen   from   the  cabin,   and
made her   wny  out  on  deck.
.She had scarcely advanced a rod,
clinging stop by step to the rai', ere
a quick tread sounded behind hor,
and a husky voice cried out sharply:
"I beg your pardon, Miss Dare,
but let 111c beg of you to return to
tho cablo, the dock is no place for
you in BUch a storm; allow me to
escort you bnck."
Donny turned with a start, and
saw, by the swinging light of the
lanterns on the masts, the pale faco
of the hero of her day dreams —
handsome Air. Pierpont.
"T thank you very much for your
solicitude, sir," said Donnylin, demurely; "but all tlie same lam not
going bnck to tho cabin; I came out
bore to soo the ocean in a Storm nnd
I intend to remain. It is grand."
"Would you mind if I stayed hero
too, then, to protect you?" he inquired anxiously; "there is positive
danger here; sec how the vessel
sways from side to rile, lf one of
those mountain waves should dash
over the deck your frail hold would
lie as nothing—you would be swept
Into  the  sea without warning."
"You may stay if you like," returned Donnylin, with a. smile so
coquettish that it fairly bewildered
the floor fellow; "llie deck is just as
free lo 0110 passenger as it is to
another.   I   suppose,

Tho lovers had been botrolhud four
long months, which Bccmcd nn   age

ceremony should tako place on Iho
week following tho Hallow-e'en festivities.
To Afiss Rochester's consternation,
Donnylin declared that she would

nowhere else, nnd that a week preceding this event, 011 Hallow-eve, a
grand party should bo given her
friends und neighbors us a sort of
Preparations nnd renovation began on a grand scale at once, and
tho littlo village, far off in wcstivn
Virginin, wns thrown into a state
of great excitement.
Oraystono Hall was to be inhabited at last, and Invitations had been
sent out for a grand party, to bo
held there on llullow-e'en.
A duy or so later, the lovely,
girlish mistress arrived at the village with a retinue of servants—Miss
Rochester at the head.
Basil Sovcrne, a tall, Hark man,
hoard the startling news from his
servant without comment,
When ho found himself nlone, ho
gave vent to a harsh, discordant
"I shall he Ihe nearest neighbor of
tho lovely young mistress df Oraystono Hall," ho suid,  leaning    back
ln nis cnair. ,;•_ have on Idea that
she will remain longer in that old
pile of stono and mortar than. her
predecessors have done."
With a .sudden Impulse ho arose,
crossed the room, and took from an
old cabinet a king, thin, steel key
heavily crusted with rust.
"Pshaw!" ho muttered, thrusting
it back in its receptacle again, "why
should I look back Into "the dark,
horrible depths of the past—my revenge is complete! She arrives by
tho 810 train to-night. I may as
well see what this voung mistress
tif Oraystono Hall is liko; fair of
face and false df heart like all tho
rest of her sex, 1 presume," ho
ruminated grimly. "A beautiful
butterfly whoso life ought lo be just
as  short."
When Donnylin sprung from the
train that evening—the prettiest little figure Imaginable In her silver-
gray traveling-dress, with its bright
ruby bows, and jaunty hat with ils
drooping plumes—a tall, dark figuro
stood motionless in the dense shadow watching her.
Ono glance at her lovely face; then
turning, he Walked swiftly away.
"Far more beautiful than——"
He  stopped  short,  frowning  darkly,   a new  thought   having evidently
taken possession uf him.
"If I so will it, that beautiful lit-
tho creature would be mine," he
muttered, twisting the ends of his
heavy, black moustache witb a white
band, on which a diamond, set in a
blood-rod stone, glowed luridly.
"There need lie no wedding feast,
if I so will it, at Oraystono
Hall; or, better still, 1 might be the
bridegroom. Eight-und-thirty. I

there is a reason why sho daro not

girl were my bride. She is a Dare,
but, I could crush her daring spirit

how! Why ponder over the matter
lunger?     Vcs, she shall be mine!"
Basil Soverno smiled grimly when
he found the invitation for tho Hallow-e'en party on his table the next
"Of course I shall go," ho said.
And this brings us back to tho
scene beneath the blossoming nloe-
tree when Donnylin Daro stood beneath the light of tbo amber-tinted
clinndelier, wilh hand outstretched in
welcome lo hor bitter foo.
There was the usual formula of
greeting exchanged, then Donnylin
was claimed by other guests.
it Wis a gala night and a gala
scone. Tho old rooms, gorgeous
with, banks of roses, and waving
banners, and roso-hucd lights, re-
snunded with girlish laughter and
fresh young voices; and the strains
of soul-inspiring dance music set
nimble feet to whirling in the giddy
mazes of tho alluring waltz.
Bonnylin was the gayest of tho
gny; she meant that her new' friends
should remember this Hallow-e'en
C.nn.es were indulged in, and forfeits paid under the swinging horse-
shoo; every one voted it a sad pity
the jolly party should break up even
when the village doc's tolled tho
hour of one.
Tho young gentlemen declared Ihey
would terminate the affair by a
rousing cheer for the lovely young
mistress of Oraystono Hall, and nnother cheer for the happy event
which was to take place on tho following week.
In the midst of iho revelry Donnylin slipped up to her room a moment.
There was a smile that meant
mischief on her roguish rod lips,and
a dancing light in thoso blue-bell
"Twenty minutes of twelve," sho
murmured with a start. "I really
wonder now if the story is really
true that the old servants tell? if

Taking a long, dark cloak from thu
wardrobe, and throwing a thiol, veil
over her golden curls, Donnylin slo'o
carefully out of the house b.v way

Over the orchard and through tho
moUm-patch, over the dancing crock
anil'through the narrow belt of forest, Donnylin flew with winged feet.

of the forest.
It was not tho ploosantcst spot

"Now here's nil ready for tho experiment!" she cried, bending her
dimpled, roguish face over tho motionless pool. Ah, how plainly tho

Prior to entering newspaper work
Mr. Huckoll hod doije distinctly
good, if not distinguished, work in
tho realm of education. The teaching profession in the West is the vestibule to the law, tho ministry,
surgery nnd the editor's'desk, and it
was by that route that Mr. Iluckell

The ranks of tho Western Canadian
press now include a number of now
and younger men of character and
ability. Thoso, each in his own constituency, exert much influence, but
are in many cases unknown outside,
except through thoir opinions on
current events, published daily or
weekly. Yet there is a natural curiosity among newspaper readers to
know somohwat of tho personality
of him to whom thoy daily or weekly
look for news. For this reason tho
series of articles begun in Ibis issue
will be a feature to attract general interest. Not only will the public get
more knowledge ns to tho appearance and personality of the editors
whose papers they read, but it is
also hoped that the series will bring
the editors thomselvos in closer
touch with each othor, softening
whatever asperities may
opposing views on public matters,
and promoting friendlier relations
through tho kinship .of common aims.
The Toronto Type Foundry Co.,
Ltd., proposes to continue the series
until it includes every western editor.-
Proprietor and. Editor Carberry Express.
When completed, tho series will
form a Oallory of Fame-possibly
tho unrcgenerato may say a Rogues'
Gallery—which will contain a portrait and estimate of tho moil who
control and direct tho press of Western Canada.
And, speaking of portraits, the
editors aro requested to mnko a 1 nt

Young Huckoll attended tho public
school nt Carberry, leaving it to
attend the Ottawa Model School,
whore, in 1889, ho wns silver medallist. Returning to tho West, he nt-
tonded St, John's College, Winnipeg,
from 1890 to 189!), nnd took tho
teachers' courso at tho Winnipeg Collegiate. After obtaining his professional cortificnto, he taught at Ren-
burn for three years. It was while
(hero ho met, nnd married, Miss J.
K, Graham, of Lokefield, in 1894.
It was perhaps circumstances, more
than   inclination,    that   forced    Air.

For several years it struggled
along. Tho local news field was very
imperfectly covered, and its fashion
of arranging nnd displaying the news
would have moved a llvo editor to
wrath or profanity, according to his
disposition. But, if it fell far below
tho standard as a local newspaper,
within the limits of Its space It fulfilled every requirement as a pnrty
organ. Its editorials advocated Cnnr right
servativo principles nnd defended
Conservative policy with skill, weight
and vigor, and wero frequently relieved by a brightness nnd a vim
that made them ns attractive ns

The fishermen of Newfoundland possess llie curious faculty of being able,

that the approach of a berg is heralded by a sudden and decided cooling
of the atmosphere, which these experienced inai'liicrs soon perceive nnd
nro warned by. But oftentimes a vessel will run Into 11 nest of bergs and
nnty hnvo to lie lowed lo safety by hor
bonis. A frequent cause of disaster
Is that, iho submerged section of n
berg being caught in Hie grip of a
current, the mass piovps steadily
nj.uln.sf wind and spa und. crashes liyip
the craft before slip can escape. 'The
same circumstances c-nuae the remark-

Tho lirst really efllclcnt luclfer match

Walker of Stockton-on-Tees, who in
tho year 1827 plnced then) on the market under the name of ','Cougrevos," In
compliment to Sir William Congrpve,
tlie Inventor of the war rocket. These
matches were sold for a shilling a box,
which contillned, besides a few dozen
of the mutches, a little piece of folded
sandpaper, through which each splint
of wood had to bo drawn before It
could be made to Inflame. An original
tin box, stamped with the royal arms
and bearing the word "Congrove," is
preserved ns a curiosity hi one of the
Loudon museums.
As In the caso nf all othor industries,
this ono was Initiated by hand labor
alone. The splints of wood were no
doubt originally dipped lu the Igniting
composition one by one, but subsequently they wore tied up in bundles
and dipped en bloc, the workman giving each bundle n twist with Ids hands

The next advance was to Iks the splints
in a frame so that ouch was sepuiuted
from lis neighbor ami Ibis (runic, containing about l.ntlfi mutches, would be
brought down on a marble slab upon
whleh the composition was spread.
The lipped matches, aiill In llielr
frame, would then lie dried in nlr for
a few hour.'! and afterward placed in
a boated chamber lo complete their
desiccation. Manual labor Is now til-
most wholly dispensed with In the
miinnfacttire of matches. The employment of yellow phosphorus for the
charging of mutches mndo the Industry it vory unhealthy one, nnd the
workpeople, If not In Iho best of
health; ran the risk of contracting a
terrible disease known as necrosis of

which was "pliossy jaw." With Improvements in manufacture this evil

were formed of cables of twisted osiers

Stretched from bank to bank, then

bridges of this sort, wliich are In con-

Tho Chinese also, according to

and hnve constructed chain bridges in

The first Iron suspension bridge ln
Europe was built over tho Tecs, near

ber successors on the throne.
It was Queen Anne who, when she
wns riding one day over Ascot common, saw what a splendid she It would
make for a race course, and sho forthwith determined that a course there
should be nnd that she herself would
offer a plate to be raced for. Thus lt
came about that the London Gazette

years old ihe grass before, carrying

This great food run' is doing wonders for weak, worn-out and discouraged women.
Many medicines which are proscribed in such enses are merely

increases the vitality of the body. Its
benefits nre thorough and lusling nnd
its cures permanent.

in two shades, sometimes throe. Chenille is also made the foundation.
Greens, blues, tomato reds, oraugo and
mahogany ribbon velvets are chosen.
One set of plaitiugs is mado.to slaut ud-

often over the middle lino there is a

The political meeting held here on
Weduesday evening was a lively one,

Liberal Party have a record established
for breaking pledges." The people here
aro anxious for better terms for B.C.,

Oh, how do you think the Babies go
To the porls'of Sleepytime Land?
Oh, it's not by rail—
They must lightly sail
To that most delightful strand!
Their little boat Is a poppy-flower,
They glide on the oceans of musk
(The bree„e's perfume);
And they  brea3t Ihe gloom
At exactly quarter-past du.sk.
They use for a sail a gossamer,
Their onrs are Just stamens of gold,
And they dip their spars
In ripples of starts—
A l.ad of dreams ln the hold.
A cargo, too, of some poppy-wine;
For ballast, the Sandman's sand—
With a winking eye
And n murmured "Bye"
They start for their Sleepytime Land.

' I *HE difference between economy and extravaganco is not
a'wa.ys measured by the number
of dollars yon pay for an orticlo.
What you get for what you pay
is tho thing that counts. It pays
far hotter to buy a GOOD SUIT
at $15.00 than it does to buy a
poor Suit at $10.00. Even although
the low-priced Suit may wear
fairly well.. A man's appearanco
counts for something, and a Suit
that goes out of shape makes a
mau look cheap.
It takes skilled haudwork to put
tho neat fit and staying qualities

to find out which tailors do the
best work—tho most cousoiontious
work. We had to find it ont by
