N "Weeks' store" was to be
found an assortment of wares
ranging from potatoes and
razors to molasses and ladies'
dress goods. Somewhere within this
extensive range was a limited supply
of what Mr. Weeks" advertisement In
the Item called "Youths', Men's and
Children's Clothing In Latest Styles at
Moderate Prices." The styles were
"late" —about a year late —and the
prices were moderate when the
lengthy period of credit given to customers is taken Into consideration.
Captain Titcomb, exchanging greetings with the half dozen loungers by
the stove, whose business there was,
as Mr. Weeks himself said, "to swap
bad tobacco smoke for heat," passed to
the rear of the store, followed by Bradley. There be proceeded to select an
entire outfit for the boy calculated to
clothe him in successive layers from
the skin outward. Wben the pile of
garments on the counter was complete
the captain and Mr. Weeks entered into a lengthy argument concerning
price. There was a "Sunday hat" Involved In the transaction, and about
tills piece of headgear the battle
waged fiercest.
"It's too much money, Caleb," said
the captain finally. "I guess I'll try
the New York store. Tom Emery's
always treated me fair enough, and
I'll give him a chance. Come on,
"I'll take off a quarter on the suit,"
conceded the storekeeper, who was
loath to see so much custom go to a
"No," was the reply, "that ain't
enough to amount to anything. Tell
you what I'll do. Caleb. Throw In that
Sunday hat and I'll take the lot and
pay you cash for It and run my risk of
glttln' the money."
So the bargain was concluded on that
basis. Bradley retired to the back
room and emerged clothed In his new
garments and tremendously conscious
of the fact. The captain said he looked so fresh that you could "smell the
paint on him."
"Say. Caleb." said "Squealer" Wlxon
after Captain Titcomb and his protege
had left the premises, "did Ez tell you
who that boy wns?"
"No, he didn't. I hinted two or three
Bm«s, but he wouldn't say."
"Well, I'll tell yon. Twas the old
maids' boy—Ben Nlckerson's son. Barney said he brought him over ln the
coach last night."
"You don't mean It!" exclaimed the
chopfallen Mr. Weeks. "Well, if that
ain't enough to— Ez made me throw
lu a hat that was wuth a dollar 'n' a
ha'f 'cause he said he'd pay cash for
everything aud take his chance of glttln' his mouey back. And Prissy and
Tempy always pay cash for everything.
Reg'lar Titcomb trick!"
The loafers about the store roared
with delight.
"Oh, I tell you," remarked "Squealer,"
"you've got to keep your weather eye
peeled when you're dealln' with Cap'n
Ez. He'll have you, head and scales,
If you alo't careful."
"That's all right," grumbled "Bluey"
Bacheldor, "but he'll git fetched up all
standln' some of these days. You can
call him smart lf you want to, but It's
pretty rlbky smartness, most folks
think. You notice bis schooner's always makin' record trips, and he's always havln' presents give hlin ond all
that. How many presents did you
have give to you, Cap'n Jabez, when
you was runnin' a coaster?"
"Not a one," Indignantly replied the
person addressed, Captalu Jabez Bailey. "Not a one. What I got I had to
work for."
It may be that Captain Jabez overworked during his sea experiences. Certainly no ono ln Orlmm had knowu him
to do a stroke of work since be retired
to live on his wife's earnings as a
"Well," commented Captain Erl
Hedge, who was not a member of the
circle, but had dropped In to buy some
tobacco, "I like Cap'n Ez. He docs
lovo to git the best of a bargain, and
he's a 'driver' on a vessel, and perhaps
he likes to shave the law pretty close
sometimes. Ez Is n reg'lar born gambler for takln' chunces, but I never
knew him to do a mean trick."
"What do you call that game he put
up on tho old maids?" asked "Squealer." "You knew 'bout that, didn't you,
Jabez? Seems Prissy and Tempy
wanted to sell that little piece of cran-
b'ry swamp of theirs 'cause It didn't
pay them to take care of It and keep It
ill. fiiULDe.. L'ris."., told  fiati.  VifiMt*
abOTit It,' and Soth said he didn't want
It, but that he'd give them so and so—
a fair price, consid'rin'. Well, tbey
was goin' to sell it to Seth, but Ez
comes home 'bout that time, hears of
the deal and goes to Prissy and buys
It for $50 mor'n Seth offered. And Inside of three months along comes that
Ostable company and buys all that
land for their big swamp. They say
Titcomb made rnore'n n hundred dollars out of that deal. If you don't
think that's n mean trick, Cap'n Erl,
you ask Seth Wiugate what he thinks
of lt."
"I know about that," said Captain
Erl calmly, "and I think it was jest
another case of Ez's takin' chances,
that's all. Seth's growlin' Is only sour
grapes. Ez kuew the Ostable folks
was talkln' 'bout layin' out a big
swamp over here some time or other.
He jest bought the Allen piece and
run his risk. You notice Prissy and
Tempy ain't findin' no fault. They
think he's the only man ln town. Fact
Is, he Is the only man, outside of the
minister, that they'll have any deal-
In's with. Queer pair in' off that is—
Ez and the minister!" he chuckled.
"Oh, women's fools, anyhow," snorted Captain Jabez savagely. "Ez Titcomb always could wlud 'em' 'round
his fingers. He's been next door to
keepln' comp'ny with more glrls'n a
few in this town sence he was old
enough to leave school, but he don't
go fur enough to git engaged or nothln'
like that. Minute there's any talk that
he's likely to git married to one of 'em
away goes Ez, and that's the end of
that courtln'. And yet, spite of their
talk 'bout his bein' slick snd hints thnt
he's tricky they're always heqvln' up
to a feller, 'How smart Cap'n Titcomb
Is,' and 'Why don't you mnke mone;,
same as Cap'n Ezry?' 'Nough to make
an honest man sick."
Captain Erl made his purchases and
went home, but the others continue-
to dissect Ezra Tltcomb's character,
and the general opinion seemed to be
that he would "bear watchln*."
Meanwhile the captain, unconscious
of all this, piloted Bradley to the corner of the road upon which the Allen
sisters lived, and there left him with
a message to the effect that he (the
captain) would call next day. Then he
sought his room at the "Traveler's
Rest," there to read the paper of the
day before, while the boy, with.his big
bundle of old clothes and new "extras,"
walked homeward alone.
The Allen house was on the "lower
road," and to reach It you turned the
corner Just above "Web" Saunders'
billiard room and went on past "Lem"
Mullett's stable, and the Methodist
"buryln' ground"—the sects in Orham
cannot, apparently, agree even after
they are dead, for each denomination
has Its separate cemetery—past the
late Captain Saunders' estate and on
up the hill overlooking the bay. Bradley had just reached the little house
next door to the Aliens, when, through
the side gate of Its yard, there darted
a small, ragged looking dog, barking
as If It went by steam. It was followed by a big dog. also barking, and this
In turn was followed by another and
still another. None of the animals was
handsome and none looked as If It wa«
good for much except to bark, but
each seemed to feel that lt was Its spe
clal duty to devour the boy before the
others got a chance nt him. On thej
came, a noisy procession, growling and
Bradley put down his bundle and
looked nbout for a stone, but the snow
covered the road, and there were no
stones In sight. ITe poised himself on
one foot antl held the other ready for
a kick. The dogs formed a circle about
him and the racket was blood curdling.
out of the gate darted a slim girl In
a red dress, brandishing a broom.
"They won't hurt youl" she screamed, running to the rescue. "Stop it, Pe-.
ter! Be quiet, Rags! Go home, Tuesday! Wlnlleld, I'll give It to you!"
The dogs dodged the broom and retired to a safe distance, wagging their
tails and doing their best to Indicate
that they were only making believe
uuyhow. WInfield, the small dog that
had led the attack, was the most persistent, and he snapped at the broom
In high glee, evidently considering that
It was waved for bis particular amuse
"They got away before I could sto.
'em," panted the girl. "Grandma's
gone to the store, and I went out lu the
Woodshed to play with 'em, and tbey
bounced out of the door flrst thing.
They don't mean anything; they're just
full of it, that's all."
"I wasn't scared," said Bradley. "1
didn't believe they'd bite. I like dogs."
"Do you?" said the girl eagerly. "So
do. JL • -nuidiu" rov« ■—» t_mml too.   Iq
moderation. The old maids don't
though. Oh, I forgot. You're the old
maids' boy, ain't you? I saw you out
in their yard with Miss Prissy this
"Yes, I saw you too. You live ln here,
don't you ?"
"Um-hum. Oh, my goodness! I
haven't got any rubbers on, and grandma said lf I got my feet wet today she
didn't know but she'd skin me. I must
go right back and dry 'em before she
conies. I've had a cold; that's why I
ain't to school. How'll I ever get theso
dogs In?"
"I'll help you If you want me to,"
volunteered Bradley.
"Will you? That's splendid. Come
Bradley carried his bundle to tbe
back steps of the little house nnd then
returned to assist at the dog catching.
It wasn't an easy operation, but n tin
dish scientifically ruttled by bis new
acquaintance tempted all but the wary
WInfield, and a bone finally decoyed
the latter Inside the woodshed, and the
door was slammed and bolted upon the
humbugged pack.
"There," exclaimed the girl, "that's
all right! I hope grandma won't notice
the tracks In the snow. If she's only
forgot her glasses it's all right. Now
come Into the kitchen till I put my
feet In the oven. What's your name?"
"Bradley Nlekerson. Most folks call
me Brad."
"That's a good name. My last name's
Baker. I hate my flrst one—It's Augusta. Ain't that the worst? Grandma
calls me 'Gusty.' Ugb! You can culi
me 'Gus' if you want to. If sounds
more like a boy's name. I wish I was
a boy."
"Oh, because a boy can do things and
doesn't have to be 'ladylike.' If I was
a boy nobody would think it was funny
for me to like dogs, and I could have
as many as I wanted."
"I should think you had a good mat»y
now.   Where did you get 'em all?"
"Oh. Just found 'em. Rags came
here oue day bimself. I call him Rags
becpuse he looks as If he was all
ravelin's. And Peter, the blacksmith
gave to me. Said I could have him If
I'd get him out of his sight. He sort
of named himself. And Tuesday was
named that because I fouud him on
Tuesday when I was on a picnic over
to East Harnlss. Aud WInfield—he's
the newest one—came ou Cap'n Burgess' fishing schooner and nobody
wanted him, so they gave him to me.
I named him WInfield because his face
looks like our schoolteacher, WInfield
Scott Daniels; hateful old thing!
Wouldn't he be mad If he knew I
named a dog after Him! You're goin'
to school, ain't you?"
"I s'pose so. They haven't said anything about It yet."
"I hope you will. You'll be upstairs,
of course."
"Upstairs" means, in Orham, the
grammar and Higher grades. "Downstairs" Is the primary department.
Bradley answered that he supposed he
should be "upstairs." He was Just beginning to eo "upstairs" In Wellmouth.

Origin of the Emblem of Authority
Used  In Congress.
At the right of the speaker's desk
In the hall of the house of representatives in the capltol at Washington
stands a large . cylindrical pedestal
made of highly polished green marble.
When the house Is called to order
each day, the sergeant at arms or one
of his deputies places upon tbe pedestal the mace, which Is the symbol of
authority In the house. When the body
adjourns he removes lt and keeps lt in
safety until the house meets again.
This mace ls of very ancient and
honorable origin. Under the old Roman republic tbe magistrates passed
on foot from one place to another administering Justice, trying public offenders and imposing penalties.
Each of these magistrates was attended by a small body of men knows
as lictors, whose duty lt was to make
way for the officers of the lnw, preserve order, make arrests and Inflict
punishment on condemned citizens.
Each of these lictors carried with
him a bunch of rods tied together
with thongs and having an ax hound
to the outside of it. The thongs were
used for scourging and the ax for
beheading. Sentences Imposed b.v the
magistrates were at once carried out
Those bundles of rods were known us
fasces. When the Romans conquered
Britain the use of the fasces as a symbol was brought with tbem. and many
other Roman customs remained with
the British people.
While It was no longer used for Inflicting punishment, lt continued to be
used as a symbol by the early English
magistrates, and. when an officer appeared carrying the fasces his authority was immediately accepted hy
all. It was, In effect, his badge of
The English form of the fasces was
Bligbtly changed ln that the ax was
placed Inside of the bundle of rods,
with the blade protruding from the
Tbe great councils of the early
Saxons gradually developed into one
general body, which In the fourteenth
century became known as the bouse
of commons. In all these earlier councils the use of the fasces was continued, but lt then came to be known
as the mace, whlcb bas remained as
the emblem of legislative authority In
that body down to the present day.
The house of representatives of the
United States was modeled closely
after the house of commons by the
framers of our constitution, and the
usage of the mace was borrowed from
the English custom.
The flrst mace adopted by the house
was destroyed by fire wben the British burned the capitol In 1814. From
1814 until 1842 a mace of painted wood
did service, but in the latter year the
present mace was made after the model
of tbe  original  one.

Tobacco Smoke Poisonous.
It Is often said tbat tobacco smoke
Is a powerful germicide. The composition of tobacco smoke Is complex,
the principal constituents being oils of
a tarry nature. Nicotine Itself Is a
strong -femicide, but the quantity of
this poison ln tobucco smoke Is minute.
The oily matter whlcb accumulates In
a tobacco pipe is highly poisonous, but
does not contain auy i»ppreciable quantity of nicotine, the chief constituent
of this residue being a very poisonous
oil known as pyridine. Tobacco smoke
contains a decided quantity of carbon monoxide, which Is a prese, vatlve
and which must possess germicidal
properties. One of the principal constituents accounting for the germicidal
properties of tobacco smoke Is the powerful    antiseptic    formaldehyde.

•hrfori* Students  Willing to  Pai   For
"To one Oxford 'rag,' $1,500." Thia
is the bill which the students of
Christ Church have been called upon
to settle for the little jollification they
indulged in recently to celebrate their
securing the headship of the river for
thi first time in fifty years. Doubtless
the"' average person will think it a
dear price to pay for a little horseplay—a bonfire with a grandstand as
fuel, a few black eyes, and several
policemen's helmets, more or less
battered, now on secret show at
Christ Church college. But gay undergrade have no objection to paying
lor their "sport."
Some  Oxford   Rowdyism.
It is not so long ago that some Oxford men were called upon to pay th&
post of amusing themselves by pelting the actors and actresses of a certain theatre with rotten fruit, spoiling
dresses and scenery, and afterwards
dismantling the auditorium by breaking up the seats. When the manager
presented his bill it was promptly
settled, and he was laughingly told*
that he could now renovate his
theatre. Furthermore, he was invite-
by the students to a dinner which it
was proposed to give to the actors
and actresses in order to soothe their
-uffled feelings.
How many shopkeepers and hotel
proprietors at Oxford and Cambridge
have received compensation for damage done to their establishments it
would be impossible to say, but tho
uumber must be considerable.
Object to  Punishment.
One of the features of varsity "rag-
ring" is that the students strongly
•esent any punishment being meted
mt to one of their number by the college authorities for an offense against
«ood manners.
Not long ago, for instance, a member of Queen's college, and a "rugger
Dlue," was "sent down" for "ragging" in a man's rooms, and the severe punishment was much resented
3y his brother undergrads. To mark
\heir disapproval a funeral procession was organized, composed of somo
'.hirty cabs, headed by one containing
the victim dressed in black, with
.rape hanging from the top hat he
wore. The cortege left Queen's at a
"•uneral pace, the drivers having crape
attached to their whips, and most of
the followers displaying crape. At the
station a large crowd had assembled.
Groans were given for the Queen's
dons and cheers for the "blue," and.
the train departed amidst a most exciting scene to the strains of "Auld
Lang Svne" and "He's a Jolly Good
English   Maidens   In  Olden   Days  Indulged   Freely   In  Habit.
Who were the first "kisser" and
"kissee?" The query is very difficult
of solution, for the origin of kissing
is shrouded in mystery, although
kissing has been practise!*' by civilized nations in every era of the world.
Biblical records do not enlighten
us as to whether our first parents indulged in the habit. The first kiss
on record was the one given by Jacob
to Rachel, when he met her at the
well. In the New Testament St. Paul
admonishes his followers to greet
one another with a holy kiss. And in
the time of the Romans kissing the
hand to a god was a sign of adoration.
From all accounts extant, English
people—unemotional and prosaic as
they are characterized—appear to
have been among the*-"first to have
exploited the joys of kissing, and to
render it a universal habit.v And
then, again, in no other country but
England has the mistletoe plant attained such popularity. Even Erasmus wrote to a friend the following:
'Englishwomen are divinely pretty
and good-natured. They have an excellent custom, thnt wherever you
rind yourself the girls kiss you. They
kiss you when you come, they kiss
you when you go: they kiss you at
every opportunity between whiles."
Numerous other illusions to the prac-
.ice prove that Erasmus was not
guilty of any exaggeration, although
the habit became a theme of gossip
ill over Europe.
Shooting the Steenbuck.
Many of tlie poor Boers lu tho Transvaal, by whom ull the shooting lhat
Is done ls for the pot and not for sport,
have perfected n system of shooting
with the assistance of oxen. A steenbuck has no four of cattle and will
lie still even if they graze right up to
him. The hunter gets together a few
cattle and with his gun walks behind
them In such a way that he cannot bo
seen from the front. Great care has to
be exercised to drive the oxen so that
they may seem to be grazing naturally. The hunter must be ready to shoot
without having to alter his position.
The slightest movement ls noticed by
the buck.

Avoid   Pore-Clogging   Powders, and  Cure all   Skin
Irritations and Eruptions With
Dr. Chase's Ointment
It is quite possible that, while you
"know of Dr. Chase's Ointment as a
■cure for eczema, psoriasis and the
most severe forms of itching skin
disease, you may have overlooked its
value as a beautifier of the skin.
There are m'nor forma of skin
trouble, such as rough, red skin, chafing, chapping, pimples, blackheads,
blotches, irritation, or poisoning
from the clothing, etc., which disfigure and form a starting point for
serious trouble.
A few applications of Dr. Chase's
Ointment at such times not only remove these blemishes, but also restore the health and beauty of the
skin, and positively prevent further
Miss C. Stanley-Jones, professional
masseuse and nurse. 283 Simcoe
street, Toronto, Ont., writes: "In myi
occupation as a nurse I have come j
across many cases in which Dr. i
Chase's Ointment has been used with
extraordinary results. One case I
recall was that of a, child of sixteen
months, who was in a bad way with
scaly head. It was a really nasty
case, causing the child to suffer very
much and to be very troublesome. I
persuaded the mother to use Dr.
Chase's Ointment, and in ten days
the child was entirely  cured.
"Another case was that of a lady
who was greatly troubled with eczema
on the face. The doctor was dosing
her with medicine, which was doing
no good. In this case cure was effected in seven days witli only one
box of Dr. Chase's Ointment. Both
of these cures  were  lasting."
Dr. Chase's Ointment is delightfully pure and creamv, is pleasant to
use, and is rapidly absorbed. It acts
as a food for the skin, making it soft,
smooth and velvety. By its soothing, antiseptic and healing properties it allays inflammation, relieves
itching and heals sores, wounds and
ulcers; 60 cents a box, at all dealers,

Had   Enough  Toothpicks I
A well known sculptor tells the fol-i'

"Whenever I see a toothpick I
think of a dinner that was given in
Rome in honor of two Turkish noblemen.
"I sat- beside the younger of the
noblemen. He glittered with go.d
embroidery ancl great diamonds, but
nevertheless I pitied him sincere.y,
for he was strange to our table manners, and some of liis errors were
both  ludicrous and painful.
"Towards the dinner's end a servant extended to the young man a
plate of toothpicks. He waved tlie
plate away, saying in a low and bitter voice:
"'No, thank you; I have already
eaten two of the accursed things,
and  I  want no more.' "—Tit-Bits.

Juder there is an immense future before
Canada and plenty of room for millions
of able-bodied families who may wisii to
tonic here. They think Vancouver is
as prosperous and has as bright a future as any place they visited. Hanbury
& Evans naturally were looking for improvements for their bread factory and
while they saw larger concerns, they
find they still hold the palm for the
fastest baking ovens in the world. They
can load and unload 250 loaves in one
ttlinute; they also hold the proud position of being the largest bread manufacturers in British Columbia. Messrs.
Hanbury & Evans arc up-to-date in
everything they undertake and they
certainly know how to make bread that
is at once tempting and appetizing and
makes one feel they cannot get enough
of a good thing. They deserve great
credit and it shows their business capabilities, when they state that they have
increased their enormous business by
over one-third' in twelve months. This
has been achieved by buying the finest
quality of flour and the very best ingredients and turning out bread that
Canadian-, English, Irish and Scotch and
many other nationalities have always
appreciated. They have also doubled
their staff in the confectionery department, where appetizing cakes and
pastries are turned out in almost uncountable, numbers. Mount Pleasant
ought to be proud to own such ;_n, up-to-
date and enterprising firm.

In reviewing the work of tbe season,
uow uenrly closed, the members of this
popular Rand have reason to feel proud
of the success which has crowned their
efforts, both from a finniicial aud uu
artistic standpoint. Experiepoe gained
during the season suggested changes iu
their constitution, and also in business
methods. A special meeting was held
iu the Bandropm on Monday 33d, fer
the purpose of confirming and adopting
u uew constitutiou, and the election of
officers for the coming season. The
result of tlio election is as follows:
W. R. Owen J. P., President,
L. J. Lloyd, Vice-President.
W. H. Coldwell, See'y.-Treas.
O.'Maddams, Recording Secretary.
Messrs. S. Conway,   Ben Steel and
G. Y. Timms, Trustees.
Tbe general public was not tardy
in appreciating the bright, catchy
music that enlivened tho performances,
which was evidenced by the hearty
applause nud numerous enoores. The
old National sougs and melodies were
also a source of pleasure to many
Old Couutry folk, reminiscent of their
youth in the land 6000 miles away
The bund has played 45 Concerts,
besides minor engagements. This is a
good showiug for a youug Baud, with
but a small repertoire to begin with,
aud streuuos practice was needed to
make good its appointments.
After a little rest, the winter work
will be taken up. A large addition to
its library has been made, embracing
standard works, overtures, operatic
selections aud snch other music as is
usually numerated in first-class
programs, so it may confidently be expected the Band will make Mt Pleasant
famous duriug the next season.

A Jewish Party
At the recent election in Austria
four Zionists were returned to parliament. They organized a "Jewish
party" and announced that they felt
justified in doing so, "because there
existed a Catholic party and a Protestant party." The four Zionists secured recognition in the organization of the chamber, and when tney
were ridiculed because of the size
of their party, referred to the fact
that the fourth party wliich Lord
Randolph Churchill organized in the
House of Commons twenty-live years
ago was just the size of the new
party in the Austrian parliament.

Ita Evolution From the Apothecaries of
the Colonies.
During the seventeenth century the
druggist came to America and closely
followed English precedents, modifying them, however, b.v the practice of
the Indians, with whom he came In
contact. Quack apothecaries began to
spring np in the new land, and In 1C3(i
the colony of Virginia passed n law
which among otlier things rcRiiliitcd
the prices and fees of the druggist.
At this time it wns fashionable for
the druggists to practice surgery Iu addition to pharmacy, and the Virginia
colony contained a large number of
people who were proficient In both professions. In Massachusetts the business was largely In the bands of
Indians, schoolmnsters, old women and
teachers. The Salem witchcraft delusion retarded the spread of the druggist for some time In the Bay State,
for the popular Impression fastened on
tbe apothecaries a suspicion thnt they
sold the potions thnt were supposed to
produce the spells. Among those who
suffered persecution nt this time
mixers of medicine appear to have
been  prominent.
The drug shop had not yet become a
distinct Institution. It was usually n
branch of the grocery or spice business. In 1647 one Giles Formnn of
Boston, bad, however, firmly established himself as devoting special attention to pharmacy. In 1048 the first
distinctive drug store In America was
opened in Boston by William Davles.

Origin of the Sedan Chair
Perhaps some expert in the Siamese
language will tell us what is its
word for "sedan chnir." When the
King of Siam's ministers, protesting
ngninst his mnjesty's favor toward
motoring, suggested recently that
"the roval sedan chnii" wns nlwnys
at his disposal, it is improbable that
thev used a word reminiscent of the
French   town.
For it is from the scene of Napoleon Ill's collapse thnt the sedan
chair takes its name, and perhaps
remote posterity will suppose that it
had some connection with that
event. But Sedan first produced
these conveyances centuries ngo. and
they were seen in England in 1581.

How Dolly Became an Idol
EDITH had long wished for a doll
that could speak. When Christmas
came aad a queer-looking box was
left behind by Santa Clius she felt very
sorry. Indeed. But she wasn't sorry any
longer when, after taking off wrapper
after wrapper, she found the prettiest
dolly you ever saw. And oh! she could
talk. Yes, she said "Mamma" and
"Papa" as plain as plain could be.
Dolly was named Susanne, because
Edith once had a llttle dog by that
name and she loved her very much.
Like Mary nnd her limb.wherever Edit—,
went dolly was sure to go. Never did
Edith tire of her, and although Susanne
didn't say so exactly ln words, Bhe
seemed to like her new mistress greatly.
Not long ago Brother Jack and Edith
walked down by the brook. Jack was
poking in the. water with a stick to see
lf he could find any "mlnnles," when a
big box came floating down stream.
"Oh, let's give dolly a ride," erled he.
So they put Susanne ln the box, and,
after tying a long string to one end, set
It adrift where the brook was widest.
Fine fun they were having, too, when,
sad to say, the cord broke!
Jack and Edith ran along the stream,
but there was no way to get dolly to
THIS may seem rather remarkable,
but you can hear sounds with the

Try this experiment: Lay a watch
face downward on the table. Stand far
enough from the table so that you are
unable to hear the ticking. Take a long
Beal stick, place one end of lt on the
back of the watch and grip the other
in your teeth. Closing the ears with
your lingers, you will then plainly hear
the tick of the watch.
If the stick is long enough, you may
place one end of tt on the top of a
piano, and with the other between your
teeth you can tell the tune that Is being
played even though you cannot hear a,
sound ln the ordinary way. I

bitterly. Jack felt worse than he did
when kept In after school. "I ought to

he spied the box. Picking up poor Susanne he handled her so roughly that
Edith would certainly have scolded him
had she seen It. Just then he pressed
dolly, so that she cried loudly "Papa!
You should have seen that big savage
drop dolly and scamper away! When he
saw that nothing happened, however, h*
came back, and spent quite a long time
hearing dolly talk-
Then he took her in his arms to the
chief of the cannibals, who listened ln
wonder to the queer doll.

Zeph was an old darky who suffered

Zeph announced his Intention of buying

Later he returned, leading a great,

Couldn't See For the Mountains.
A   little   boy,   but   recently   returned

"only there were so many mountains

"Um! It's a god!" he said. Then he
"Take away the old idol! We have
now a greater god. Let every one bQW
down before the new god!"
So dolly became the idol of the cannibals, and she grew so proud and haughty
that you would scarcely have known her.
But then she wasn't an ordinary doll,     i
PEOPLE soon began to talk about
the old woman when she came to
live in the little hut just outside

kindly way3 about lier and cured so
many of them of diseases that they
came to love her, although this love was
still mixed somewhat with fear.
"Oh, dear, I'm afraid he'll grow up to
be a perfect glutton," said Tom's mother
to the old woman, In despair. The wise
old woman, who had stopped for a short
visit, shuok her head as though ln deep
"I think he can be eured if you will
do exactly as I tell you," said she.
"Send htm over to his Grandma's tomorrow with a basket of your finest

come home before nightfall. I shall
take good care of him and return hin
The next afternoon Tom was given a
basketful of large, ripe cherries and told
to take them to Grandma.
He walked along for some time until
he reached the edge of the woods,
through which his path led.
As he began to feel tired he thought
he would rest a while beneath a tree.
The longer he gat the hungrier he grew.
"Surely It won't matter if I take one
cherry,".said he. So Tom took one, and
then another one, and another, until
he had eaten a great many.
Strange to say, the number of cherries seemed to grow no less. Happily
he trudged on his way, munching cherry
after cherry.
Tho path had always seemed quite
plain before, but somehow, Tom wandered from it and was soon lost ln the
woods. For a long time he scrambled
onward, calling as loud as he could, but
after a while he grew too tired to go
further. Then he lay down and went to
It was bright daylight when he awoke,
feeling ever so bad.
While he stood, wondering which way
he should go, whom should he see but
the wise old woman.
"What is the matter, little boy?" she
"Oh, I'm lost, and I want to go home,
and I'm hungry," he tearfully explained.
"Hungry! why there's a whole basketful of cherries beside you!"
Tom shook his head. "I couldn't eat
another cherry if 1 was to starve. I'm
sorry  I  ate  any  at all."

All at once, Instead of the old woman

EVERYBODY In the city bowed to

Quite often the marquis took an airing
in his sedan chair, borne by sturdy carriers. When, upon this morning, the
people of the city saw the chair of the
marquis approaching, one and all bowed
deeply. Although the curtains of the
chair were drawn slightly, they hoped
there might be a chance of his observing them. Tbe carriers passing ln front
of a company of soldiers on parade,
the company saluted.
Judge of the astonishment and humiliation of every one when just then the
door opened and out leaped a monkey.
The marquis had sent his pet monkey
out to get the air.
ONCE upon a time a certain great
minister of state wrote to the

special matters of importance ln that
district needed his personal attention,
and told the mayor at What time to
expect his arrival.
The city arranged a grand reception
for the minister A band ot musicians
were to play; all the school children
were to sln<* and scatter flowers before him; and the mayor, heading the
town's most prominent citizens, was
to read a resolution of welcome.
A magnificent coach Anally drove up,
emblazoned with the minister's coat-
of-arms. Out of the coach stepped
two persons—one a dapper gentleman
in r '^ndld uniform and the other
a mild looking old man. who looked
of little Importance.
The mayor immediately advanced
and shook the hand of him of the flne
uniform, and then directed his oration of welcome toward him. Thereupon the mild gentleman stepped forward, Insisting that he was the minister and that the other person was
his servant.
The mayor and the rest of the crowd
laughed in amusement. The old man
must be crazy! So the minister. In
disgust, leaped Into his carriage and
drove away, leaving his Ane appearing valet to receive the homage of
the  city.

There   ain't  a  single   nother   thing
t..at helps yer feelln's so.
Some days I stay ln muvver's room, a-
gettln' ln her way;
An'   when  I've bothered  her so much,
she sez:   "Oh, run an' play!"
I say:    "Kin I go barefoot?"    En she
says:    "If y choose"—
Nen   I   alwuz  wanter  holler  when   I'm
pullln' off my shoes!       Ji
It's fun a-goin' barefoot wh.u yer play-
in' any game—
'Cause robbers ould be noisy an' Indians awful tame
Unless they had iheir shoes off when
they crep' up In the night,
An' folks can't know they're comin' till
they get rlgi,   close ln sight!
i.n' I'm surely goin' barefoot every day
when I get old,
|\n' haven't got a nurse to say I'll catch
my death o' cold!
An' if yer goi.,'  barefoot, yer want t'
go outdoors.
U' can't stretch out an' dig yer heels ln .
,      stupid hardwood floors
Like you kin dig 'em in th' dirt!    An'
where th' long grass grows,
t'h' blades feel kinder tickley and cool
between yer toes.
'. o  when  I'm pullln'   off my shoes  I'm
mighty 'fralu I'll cough—
_ause then I know ma'd stop me 'fore
I got my stockln's off!
'it y'   often go 'round  barefoot  the-e's
lots o'  things to know—
'"if how t' curl yer feet on stones, so they
won't hurt y' so—
.'.n' when th' grass ls stlckley an' pricks
y' at a touch,
,Tes'  plank yer  feet down solid,   an'   lt
uon'l h'trt half so much,
_ lose my hat mos' every day.   I wish I
did my shoes—
Vr else 1 wisht I was so poor I hadn't
none to loae!

But Hetty knew him when she man*
a trip there. Of course, she would know
him anywhere. Rover nearly choked
himself trying to come to her. When a
rough gypsy tried to drive Hetty away
Rover jumped at his throat.
There's no telling what might have
happened If a policeman had not come
up just then. He had come to see about
something else the gypsies had stolen.
So Rover was set free and the gypsy
taken to jail.
Hetty gave Rover one hug after another, arid you could see how pleased
he was by the way his tail wagged.
They loved each other more than ever
af'er that.

reached 'way up above Elsie's
head, and was so wide that she
could hardly touch either side with her
Anger tips. That was how she knew
she was growing. Whenever she went
to see grandpa, she always ran to the
clock to Bee whether It wasn't easier
than last time to stretch from side to
As she did this, though, she would
whisper, "Please, Mr. Clock, by your
leave," for it was such a dignifled oldt
clock, with its big, solemn face, and Its
deep, booming chime. In truth, Elsie
felt just a little afraid of It. Many a_
time had she listened with open mouth,
as grandpa told wonderful stories, uliou-

course, she had Arst to go to the tmitt
and rub Winnie's nose, and then pat
Tommle, because he would get jealousy
just like some little girls Elsie knew..
Funny, horses are lots like people.
After her romp was over, back she
came to the house and began, as sho
always did, to wander all through the
big mansion. At last, she stood before
the clock.
Somehow, it didn't seem to frown ate
lt usually did. Instead, its face seented
to wear a beaming smile of welcome.
Just then she noticed a curious thing-.
The big door of the clock was opeu—
just a wee crack, it is true, but still It
was open!
Elsie came nearer and nearer. Surely there could be no harm in just peeping. And very likely there were so
many wonderful things Inside. So she
opened the door the least bit farther.
though she shivered as she did so. But.
the face above still seemed to look on
her so kindly that she grew braver.
and, opening lt wider, took a good.
long look.
Elsie felt disappointed. There were
the great weights and the immense
pendulum and all kinds of wires and.
wheels, but whenever the clock had
struck Elsie always fancied that some
giant was grumbling; and now there
wasn't even a sign of a giant. ■
Inside there was so much space that
she found she could nestle there quite.
comfortably. Just to see how it felt. |
she pulled the door to. But lt was so,
dark and gloomy she thought it would j
be much nicer onen. Oh, dear! the door-1
had stuck, and lt wouldn't budge an,'
Inch! j
Elsie was frightened, Indeed. She!
called as .oudly as she could and she
beat the door with her tiny Asts. No
one heard her.
Then the clock struck. As the deep,
tones boomed, lt seemed ln her very-
ear, she sank Into a corner, too .scare-
to cry any further. The sounds rumbled ever so long. She was sure lt was
the goblins whispering, and shiver aft- j
er shiver ran down her back. Even the
clock in its very tick seemed to be say- ■
ing, "We've—got you—now! we've— j
got you—now!" over and over again.   :
Could it be that some one was com- '
"Oh, grandpa, grandpa!" Elsie cri_—_
with all her might.
Grandpa thought at Arst 'twas mice.
and he opened the door to see. How
surprised he was when Elsie Aung herself sobbing Into his arms!
But he soon kissed away the tears;,
and before long Elsie even smiled when
he laughed i..ul called her his "Little
u.ckory, tuckory, dock, the mouse who
ran up the clock."
Elsie   never  goes  very   near the  old.

me in, I know," says she, shaking hec-i
golden head wisely. f
