Trove stood a 'moment im tongue
halting between anger and surprise.
He turned without a word, walking
away, a bitter feeling In his heart.
Brooke greeted him with unexpected
'heartiness. He wus going to bed when
tbe young man rapped upou bis door.
Brooke opened the letter and rend the
words alond, "Thanks; I sball not need
tby help."
"What.*" Trove exclaimed.,
"He says be shall not need the help
I offered him," Brooke answered.
-Good night," said Trove, who, turning, left the bouse and hurried away.
Lights were out everywhere in the village now. The windows were dark at
the Sign of the Dial. He hurried up tbe
old stain and rapped loudly, but none
came to admit him. He called and listened. Within there were only silence
and that old familiar sound of the sec-
swarming biif'Sf liC'as If it Were being
baned of dragons. Two months had
passed before he was able to leave his
bed. He remembered only tbe glow of an
Indian summer morning on wood and
field, but wben he rose they were^ill
white with snow.
"I must go," said he.
"Not yet, my boy," said Mary Allen.
"You are not stroug enough."
"Darrel has taken my trouble on blm,
and I must go,"
"I bave beard you say it often since
you fell on tbe doorstep," said she, stroking bis hand. 'There Is a letter from
him," and sbe brought the letter and
put it ii, bis bands. Trove opened it
eagerly and read as follows:
Dear Sidney—It ls Sunday night, and all

not slept an hour in weeks and was
weary, but he could not bear to come
away and walked slower as the nlgbt
wore on, bearing only the trend of his
own feet. He knew not where to go
and wag drifting up and down, like a
derelict in the sea. By and by people
began to pass him—weary crowds—and
they were pointing at the patches on
his coat, and beneath them he could
feel a kind of burning, but the crowd
was dumb. He tried to say, "I am not
to blame," but his heart smote him
when It was balf said. Tben, suddenly, mauy people were beside him, and
far ahead on a steep bill, in dim, gray
light, be could see Darrel toiling upward, and sometimes tbe tinker turned,
beckoning him to follow. And Trove
ran,  but the way was long between
them.    And the tinker called to him, ' pondering, he "saw, or thought he saw,

a man suffering the just punishment of
many stns? I ask it for old friendship
and to increase the charity I saw growing ln thy heart long ago. At last I hava
word of thy father. He died a peaceful,
happy death, having restored the wealth
lhat cursed him to its owner. For his
sake an' thine I am glad to know lt.
Now between thee and the dear Polly
there ls no shadow. Tell her everything.
May the good God bless and keep thee,
but the long road of happiness, that ye
must seek and find.   Yours truly,
R DARREL of the Blessed Isles.
Trove read the letter many times,
and as he grew strong he began to
think with clearness and deliberation
of his last night in Hillsborough. Darrel  was the  greatest  problem  of all.
Tne Wc_unot:
Trove stood a moment, his band upon
the latch.
"If there's anything I can do for you
ar for Polly," said be, "I should like to

he hesitated, his voice failing him fat i
a moment—"and play a game of checkers," be added.
Paul stood looking up at him sadly,
bis face troubled.

over the boy. "What ls the first law,
"Thou shalt learn to obey," said the
boy quickly.
"And who Is the great master?'
"Right, boy! Let's command our
hearts to be happy."
The great bare maple was harping
dolefully ln the wind. Trove went for
tbe mare, and Tunk rode down the hill
with him In the cutter.
"Things here ain't what they used t'
be," said Tunk.
"Widder, she takes on awful. Great
There was a moment of silence.
"I aint tbe same durn fool I used f

"What's happened to you?"
"Well, they toi' me what you said
about lyln'. Ye know a man in tha
hoss business Is apt t' git a leetle careless, but I ain't no such dum fool as I
used t' be. Have you beard tbat Tcc-

"The old maid?"
"Yea, air; the ol' maid, to Deacon
Haskins, an' he lives with 'em, an' now
they're jes like other folks. Never was
av surprised since I was first kicked
by a hoss." . j
T—'ik's conscience revived suddenly '
and seemed to put its hand over hia
mouth. |
"Joe Beach Is goin' to be a doctor,"
Tunk went on presently.
"I advised bim to study medicine,"
Trove answered.
"He's gone off t' school at MilMam
an' la workin' like a beaver. He was
purty rambunctious till ye broke him
to lead." I
They rode then to tbe foot of the hill
ln silence. i
"Seems so everything has changed," j
Tunk added as he left the cutter.  "Ez

Veteran   Canadian    Railway    Builder
Called "Uncle Donald" By King.
At half-past nine o'clock on thi
morning of November 7, % 1886, at
Craigellachiei' British Columbia, an
old man whose hair was snowy whito
drove a golden spike into the cedm
tie upon which the rails met from
east and west.
The man was Donald Smith. T\w
spike completed the Canadian Pacific
Jn the terrible five years of its build
ing, from 1880 to 1885, he had
changed from a strong, black-bearded
sturdy man to a white-haired veteran.
In the year following Mr. Smith
was rewarded for his services with
knighthood in the Order of 3t. Mich
ael and St. George. His cousin Mr
Stephen, had already been recogniz 'd
with a baronetcy, and both had been
immortalized in the names of two nf
the greatest mountains of the Cani-
dian Rockies, Mount Donald and
Has  Scarcely  Altered.
Since the completion of the Cana
dian Pacific Railway, Lord Strath
cona's appearauce has scarcely altered. At the age of eighty-four, says n
writer in The World's Work, his eyes
are as clear as they were thirty years
ago. His form is slightly bent with
age, but he still walks with firm and
steady step. He talks freely and
brightly on the topics of the day
though never committing himself on
matters of state, and he always makes
his visitor feel at ease from the moment he begins conversation to the
time when he bids him a cheery
It is this sense of persistent kindliness that has won for him such a
host of friends. Once you "have experienced it you can well understand
why the King and the Queen of Ehb
land dispense' with all formality
where he iB concerned—why they call
him "Uncle Donald." You feel that
he is "Uncle Donald" to you and to
all people who come within the circle
of his friendship. This characteristic
sums up the man as he is to-day.
A Valued Souvenir.
There is one little feature which
may mean much or little, but which
a visitor to Lord Strathcona cannot
but notice. When indoors he alway
wears a little brown hat of silk, daint
ily crocheted, on the top of his head
to cover the place where the once
abundant hair has disappeared.
Why he wears this little cap nobody seems to know, but there must
be some reason of no ordinary nature
for it gives him a great deal of
trouble, slipping over his head when
ever he turns with a quick movement
as he often does when engaged in a
conversation which interests him. H"
always balances it again carefully.
It may be some gift of the olden
days, some memento of a faithful In
dian friend during his long and lonely sojourn in the Canadian wilds, or it
may be the work of his wife's hands.
Certain it is that some interesting history attaches to it. and that Lord
Strathcona sets a high value on he
little square of worked silk.
Lord Strathcona sits close by hi-
visitor, and sometimes lays his hand
on your knee with a gesture of pater
nnl friendliness. At other times hj
will lean back with folded arms, his
bright, deep-set keen eyes twinklinv
with a merry light. The bushy, overarching white eyebrows but add to

A  Hudson   Bay  Route.
The Hudson Bay route as one oi
the great channels of the world's
freight traffic is a possibility suggested by A. P. Low, the director of the
Geological Survey of Cunada, who liu-
recently made an expedition through
that region. The success ol thn western
Canadian wheat fields depends, says
Bradstreet's, on cheap transportation
preferably by water. The further popu
lation penetrates into upper Saskatchewan and Alberta the longer the
rail hauls and consequently the slow-
er its development.
All that is needed to open Hudson
Bay to commercial usee is a line of
rails to carry freight to one of its
ports. At present the Hudson Bay
Company and tbe Revillon Fur Company have ships that make its small
trading ports a few times a year. On
the score of distances this Hudson
Bay route has much to offer. Regina.

important town on the Canadian
Pacific Railway is just as neir

Tbe distance from Churchill- to
Liverpool is almost the same as that
froth Montreal to Liverpool. Hence
there is a saving of distance of one
thousand miles of rai. or water carriage in favor of this northern route.
Automobiling, it is said, has quickened the market for furs and made
the quest of them even more zealous
than usual this year. The whale fishery also supports two ships in Hudson
Bay. Flour for use of dwellers nt the

Prince of Wales Inspects Royal Navaf
Volunteers At Lambeth.
Over 700 strong, and in spick and
span condition, the 10 companies
forming the London division of the
Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve assembled the other day at their drill-
hall in Commercial road, Lambeth,
lor inspection by the Prince of Wales.
A crowd of people awaited the arrival of the Prince, and hearty cheers
were raised when his Royal Highness
drove up ^n Naval uniform. Within
the gates was a full guard of honor
composed of officers and men from
Nos. 1 and 2 companies, under Lieut.
Commander Guinness, introduced to
the Prince, one by one, the officers
under his command.
Having been inspected by the
Prince the division wen! through man-

na! and firing exercise, and then "full
in for drills" was piped.
Many of the drills were of a spectacular nature, and carried out with
remarkable precision, dash, anil
unity. The dismembering of field guiu
and their uquipment, and lifting thein
piece by piece through a "hole in the
wall" was at once a good show item
and a test of efficiency.
The Prince watched every movement with a professional eye, antl
asked many questions of the officer*
on points of detail. The drills completed, the "general assembly" una
sounded, and as Boon as all the companies hnd fallen in his Royal Highness addressed them a few congratulatory words.
The next order from the commanding officer was, "Prepare to stand hy
to give three cheers." Then: "Three
cheers for his Royal Highness the
Prince of Wales! Hip, hip, hurrah!"
The men obeyed heartily, and tha
crowd outside, hearing the sound,
added a fourth cheer on its own account.
This waB again repeated as the
Prince's two-horse carriage moved off
towards Westminster Bridge.
Gift to  England.
The statue of Williom III. , of
Orange, which the German Emperor
is about to present to King Edward,
is a bronze figure nine feet in height.
It will be shipped to England in June,
when an exact duplicate will be erected on the terrace of the royal palace
in  Berlin.
According to Herr Heinrich Baucke,
the Bculptor who is making both the
figures, the Emperor decided to sond
the statue to England after seeing the
sculptor's rough sketch. "What a
capital present that would make for
England!" he exclaimed.
His Majesty's original intention was
to Bend a miniature statue as a private
present to King Edward, but the idea
wns given up in favor of a full-sized
figure, which, according to the words
of the Kaiser's-.irritten instructions, is
intended "for the English nation."
Herr Baucke relates that the Emperor spent three-quarters of an hour
in his studio on his first visit of inspection criticising the details of the
historical dress given to the figure.
His Majesty seized a paper and pencil, drew nn outline of the pose, rapidly filled in each detail and explained the points witb his usual vivacity.
He was careful, however, to collect
the pieces of paper on which he had
made his sketches and carry them
awny with him when he departed.

Have Secured Options on Adjoining
Properties, Thus Causing Considerable  Comment   in   Cobalt  Circles
The Ontario-Quebec Cobalt Mining
Company, Limited, has not issued,
much information lately as to the |
condition of their properties in j
Bucke township, and the'y now claim
that this action has been part of a
coune whicli Ihe officers have had up
their sleeves for months past. The
veins that were uncovered during
the earliest operations looked so
good and the reports of the various
mining engineers and experts who
examined the property were so promising that the officers decided to
maintain secrecy until they could
obtain options on the properties immediately surrounding their mines.
These options have now been secured, it is understood, at reasonable
figures, and recent reports are being
made public. The company's chief
engineer, Mr. A. E. Hogg, M.E., in
his latest report recommends that
the main shaft be at once sunk to
the 150-foot level, where the richest
ores in the section have been encountered, and the directors have practically decided to follow his recommendations. The Hon. L. J. La-
brosse also inspected the Ontario-
Quebec Cobalt properties a few days
ago, and his report is extremely
gratifying to the directors of the
company. The officers of the company expect the Ontario-Quebec Cobalt Mining company to become a
heavy shipper in the near future.
Machinery ordered during the winter is now on the way to the property, and will be in working shape
within a few weeks. At the present
time, in addition to the superintendent and chief engineer, there are
twenty-four miners constantly at
work at the mines.

Thousands of young growing girls

and it mny develop into consumption unless promptly nttended to.
Anaemia means bloodlessness. Dr.
Willinms' Pink Pills make pure, red

Que., says: "I was so weak and run
down thnt my friends thought I was
going into consumption. 1 was as

nnd did not sleep well. The least
exertion tired me out and if I walked
n few blocks I was almost breathless, lily sister advised me to tnke

Are Present In Every South African
Village — Kaffirs Revel In Witchcraft—They Are Credited With
Every Calamity—Their Influence Is
Enormous, and They Are st ths
Bottom of All Mischief.
Among the innumerable pests with
which the unpeaceful land of South
Africa is bo liberally cursed, the witch
doctor must take high rank.
I, myself have known a great many
witch doctors of all degrees, from
Eupajina, the mighty rainmaker, who
professed to control the seasons, down
to petty local practitioners who could
do little more than smell out wizards
and arrange to poison their neighbors, but of the whole number I cannot remember one whom I regarded
with anything but disfavor, says a
London Mail correspondent.
Source  of All Trouble.
Whenever there is troube in a Tillage it is always safe to blame the
witch doctor, for if he did not actually plan it, he certainly assisted in the
later stages. If anyone dies mysteriously, twisted up into a knot by one
of those ghastly vegetable poisons so
dear to the heart of the Kaffir, you
may be sure the witch doctor supplied the dose. If a trader is boycotted, if his huts are burned and
his cattle nssegaied, it was the witch
doctor who brought it about. If a
mine suddenly ceases to get labor, if
the boys run away without any ap-
Earent reason, it means that the place
ss fallen under the ban of these
pests. If a tribe rises against the
white man, it was the witch doctor
who stirred up the passions of the
people and who gave the signal for
the first massacres. i
Controls  the   Kaffir's  Life. '
The influence of these men is enormous, for witchcraft controls every
action of a Kaffir's life, from the cradle to the grave. At his birth the
local magician threw the bones to
discover if it were auspicious for the
new arrival to live. His choice of a
wife, his journeyings and hunting, '
his seed-time, the sale of his cattle
and his daughters, his friendships and
his vengeances, nil are determined by
the will of the spirits ns interpreted
by the witch doctor, nnd, even after
death, the ghost of tho departed still
requires the ministrations of its former adviser.
Witchcraft is the main interest in
the native's life. He revels in it. It
provides him with an unending source
of conversation, adds zest to existence, relieves the otherwise impossible tedium of the daily round in
the kraals. Go into tho native districts, live among the Kaffirs, learn
their languages, watch them in the
fields, in the kraals, at the beer
drinks, get to know them as intimately as possible for a white man,
.and I guarantee you will never come
'across anything in the least resembling the assegai-waving heroes of whom
you read in the book. But, none the
less, you will see many interesting
things, learn many gruesome secrets,
as you sit beside the fire nt night and
listen to those deep, guttural voices.
Witchcraft All the Time.
There will be no hint of noble barbarism, no high-flown sentiment, no
longings for independence from patriotic reasons. It will be witchcraft,
witchcraft, witchcraft, all the time.
Grim stories of uneasy spirits, the
restless ghosts of the unburied dead,
who cannot sleep ivith their fathers,
! but wander perpetually on the mountain sides, tales of the hyena, the
loathed and loathsome horse of the
evil spirit; tales of the owl, the lion,
and the snake, the sons of the evil
Bpirits; tales of the eagle, the messenger of the departed. Then will
eome even grimmer stories still, a list
of the wizards who hnve been smell-
ed out by the witch doctors nnd removed by poison, by tho assegai, or
• by the knob-stick, a long list this,
an appallingly long one.
It is a hideous revelntion at first.
' nntil you get used to it. Then yon
accept it as inevitable, as part of
| the Kaffir's very existence, and you
j realize that no legislation can ever
! 6top it, for prosecution is useless
where evidence is unobtainable.
At the'same time the new Ayer's Hstr
Vigor is a strong hair tonic, promoting
tbe growth of the hair, keeping all the
tissues of the hair snd scalp in a healthy
condition. Tbe bsir stops falling, dandruff disappears.   A splendid dressing.

London.—Lord Elgin and Sir
Francis Hopgood, percanent Secre-
1 tary of the Colonial Offlce, were
.closely questioned last night on behalf of British Columbia In respect
to the exact bearing of the amendments to the British North America
Bill, which Lord Elgin has passed In
the House of Lords. It seems that
apon Winston Churchill's speech announcing the excision of the Dominion Government's words "final and
unalterable,," as applied to the subsidies settlement, Sir Wilfrid Laurier brought strong personal pressure to reinsert the words, in order
to prevent the question being kept
.-alive In Canadian politics.
Thereupon as a compromise the
preamble and schedule were inserted
,-ro make clear the intention of the
Canadian Parliament to make settlle-
ment "final and unalterable."
The Colonial Office, however, assures British Columbia that despite
the amendments, the settlement Is
not "final and unalterable." The way
remains open for future negotiations with Ottawa.
Apparently both sides claim a victory. The bill now comes back to the
House of Commons for the acceptance or rejection of the Lords'

Gold in the Chest Seemed to be Unmovable,
but Cure was Soon Effected by
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine
It is, waste of time 'o use ordinary
-ough mixtures for serious, colds on
th> chest, and time is of infinite
value when the lungs are in danger.
The risk is too great, especially
when you wait to think that Dr.
Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine is for sale in nearly every
store that keeps  medicines  at all.
This letter gives you some idea of
the effectiveness of this great medi-
Mrs. A. Barnum. Ingersoll, Ont.,
•writes: "My husband had a very
severe cold on his chest and got so
fbad he could not speak above a whisper. The cough medicines he tried
•seemed to have no effect and reading
about Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed
and Turpentine I sent for a bottle.
In two days he was cured end is
very grateful for such a medicine.
He savs we will never be without
this medicine, in the house."
The very name of Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine is
sufficient to explain the simple and
yet powerful ancl well-known ingredients of which tliis great medicine
is composed.
While linseed sheathes the mouth,1
tongue nnd tliront with a protective
coating to prevent injury from hard
coughing, turpentine disinfects and
stimulates the ulcerated parts of the
bronchial tubes and lungs and is almost specific for bronchitis.
Other ingredients, which along
with these go to make up Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine,
soothe the nerves, loosen the cough,
aid expectoration, and by thorough
action on the whole system completely cure coughs and colds, bronchitis, asthma, whooping cough and
sore throat.

Tribal Suicide.
All students of Malay and Hindoo
lilstory know that one of the most horrid customs In those countries is the
"poopootnn," what I should like to ca!l
the tribal suicide, says C. Thleme, correspondent of De Nlewe Courant, The
Hague. A Bull prince, with the instincts of his warrior race, declines to
surrender, but prefers death, and he
and all his people seek death. The
Prince of Badoeng did this. He turned a deaf ear to all suggestion of a
reettlement, but he and all connected
with him, men, women and children,
committed suicide. Nearly the same
thing happened In 1895 In I.ombok, a
neighboring island. The old king had
surrendered, but one of his sons, a
cripple, walked out with aU his relations dressed ln gorgeous garments,
liedecked with all their Jewelry, and
*vlth their swords and lances attacked
the Dutch nnny, only to find tbe death
tbey courted. Those who were not
killed In the fight wero afterward

Timely  Advice  Given    on    the    Fuel
Subject by W. H. Aldridge
W. H .Aldridge, manager director
of the Pacific Coal Co., in an interview  yesterday  said:
"The difficulties in the western
coal fields have been settled for twj
years, and it is only a question of
getting sufficient men to enable the
coal companies to amply supply the
public, the industries and the railways. Some of the coal companies
are short of men at the present time,
but it is hoped that this shortage
will be made up during the next
month or two.
"One important cause for the coal
shortage last winter was due to"' the
public waiting until fall before laying in their winter supply. During
last summer a number of the mines
did not have sufficient orders to oper-i
ate over three or four days a week,
and in the fall tlie coal companies j
had more orders than could possibly j
be filled. ' I
'The  severe  weather later in  the'
season   made   it  impossible   for   the
ailways to handle all the traffic and !
supply  sufficient cars,  and    it    was
equally difficult    for    the  coal companies to operate to their fullest ca-!
pacity under the severe weather con- j
'If the public will, so far as pos-1
sible, take their coal supply during
the summer months, when weather
conditions are favorable for both rail-'
ways and mines, there need be no
fear of any coal shortage during the
coming winter."—Manitoba Free
Press,  May 22,  1907.

If several kinds of food are pieced
before the cows they will select tho
kind first that ls most palatable and
when satisfied will reject a large portion, which may be wasted. When the
foods are prepared and made more
palatable by the addition of ground
grain to hay, straw or fodder there
will be less waste. In winter the object should be to have the animal consume the least desirable foods as a
matter of economy, and at the same
time give them other foods In connection therewith that will enable the animals to gain, as It should not be satisfactory to bave them s'mply remain at

A Spanish Brigand
Strange tales are being told in Cordova, Spain, of the exploits of the
brigand Pernales, who holds entire
villages to ransom and extracts
money by the mdst amazing tricks,
wliich include the assumption of
wizardry. Not long ago he took up
a position of observation about a
mile and a half from the village of
Rue, not far from Cordova, and, noting a group of peasants at field work,
coolly wnlked up to accost them in
the tone  of a captor.
Knowing that the men were the
servants of various proprietors, he
ordered them to bring him a sum
equivalent to $30 from each, nnd intimated that lie would hold all tlie
plows and other implements against
the money. Strange as it sounds, the
men are said to have gone off quietly
to execute the command, and the
proprietors as tamely sent the money,
wliich the brigand spent the rest of
the dny collecting as it was brought
to him, while he lounged smoking
A still more amazing exploit of
the brigand is reported from Villnu,
where he successfullv extorted not
only money but a night's hospitality
and snfe keeping by posing as a
wizard. He declared that if any
harm came to him a curse would
fall on the crops, then suffering from
drought, whereas if he was treated
honorably as a welcome guest he
would bring down tlie rain so much

"   Oaptain" and a Big Bear.
Capt. Stanley, the British Naval
Attache at St. -Petersburg, while out
bear shooting had a narrow escape
from being killed.
He was in a-forest near the village
of Borokina, between St. Petersburg
and Moscow, with a member of the
British and a member of the Austrian Embassy, when a large bear
suddenly emerged from behind a tree
several feet away.
Capt. Stanley fired, wounding the
beast in the breast, but the brute continued his rush, knocking the captain
down. His gun flew out of his hands,
and the bear bit first one leg and then
the other. Instead of clawing him,
however, the boar then departed hurriedly, and later the other hunters
killed it. Capt. Stanley was carried
home and had to take to his bed.

"Bridget, how do you wash Willie's
"Sure, ma'am, jest as 1 wash ivery
thing else, with plenty of hot water
and soap, a good rubbin' on the board,
and a pipin' hot iron," repeated the
girl  cornrlacently.
"Oh, Bridget. Bridget!" id her mistress with a sigh—for ruined shirts and
the money she could not ask to be.refunded. "Don t you know that is "all

"Wrong, Is It? Sure an' I've washed
flannels long afore yez were born, an'
it's the fnrrst time I've tver been lolt
I didn't know how," and Bridget sniffed  indignantly.
"But, Bridget, just look nt these extensive shirts I bought Billy not a

"Well, an' what's wrong with them.
It's mighty dirty they were, and not
the speck of a smut is there on them
now—an* it's hard rubbin' It took, too,
ma'am,   to  get  them   that  clean."
"Yes. but see, they are stiff as a board,
and so shrunken that they must be
thrown   away."
Bridget, who was more ignorant ihan
Bul'.en. looked a trifle abashed, and said
"Weel, ma'am. It's porry I am If the
shirts don't suit yez—perhaps yoj'd
be  tellin'   me how   to do  it  better."
"Certainly I will. Bridget. After alt,
there has only been one shirt spoiled
and I'm sure you'll -.a better next
"In the first place, \ou should not
have used hot water- lukcwaim is
the only heat that does not shrink
flannels. What is more Important,
every wnter through which you wash
and rinse them should be of exactly
tne snuc temperature
"Then you should no. have soaped
them at all. Instead, you should have
shaved up some pure white soap, dissolved It In hot water and added

"Well, Bridget, you can use hotter
water for blankets, but you must not
rub them. Just sop them up and down
in a 'ub half full of strong soapsuds,
and two ol three tablespoonfuls ot dissolved borax. After you have them well
washed in one tubful of suds, put them
ln another and repeat the sopping. Then
rinse in a clean water, run througn a

"You must remember, though. Bridget, when I put In Willie's llttle pink

A New and Novel
Guest Book
THIS ordinary guest book Is now a
matter of course ln most coun-
try homes, but many hostesses!
with a love of novelty prefer to<
bave their friend's visit recorded in _
more distinctive way than by Ihelr denatures and the date of the visit.
One clever young matron has a book:
that Is not only an unlaillng source of
Interest to every one who sees It. but
helps her out in many a tight placa
when at a loss to remember little idiosyncrasies of her friends.
One evening when a merry house
party was playing that childish gamut
where each player writes down her favorite pursuit, food, amusement, ant*
so forth, the tastes of her friends were.
found to be so varied that a bright Idea
came to this hostess.
"Why not utilize this Information for
my own benefit," she thought. "I'm
constantly having guests In the country
and am often at my wits' end to remember their personal likes and dislikes.
I'll just start a guest book on the principle of this game and make each of iny
friends write down the things she most
cares for and dislikes."
Not being able to buy a suitable book,
she took heavy white Irish linen paper
of commercial size, 9x12 Inches, and
bound many sheets of it firmly together
between-heavy cardboard bor'-\ covered
with a  gay  flowered  cretonne.
At the top of one sheet ehe Illuminated   In    quite    large    letters,   "Hl_
Likes and  Dislikes,"   using for alternate pages the samo title, but wltti
the  feminine  pronoun.    Beneath   this
was left a small space for the name
and  date,   while   down   the   left   sido
were run  ln smaller  Illuminated  lei-
, ters grouped sub-titles, such as "Hi»
I Favorite Game,"   "His Most Detested
' Game."   "The Food    He   Likes  Best."
"His Most Despised Food." ■
These sub-titles may be of such ax
nature as the inclination of the hostess dictates, and may be made to in-
cludo all the tastes and distastes of
her friends ln as many different directions as the size of the page permits-
Just at first when people were asked
to write in this novel guest book they
were Inclined to take It as a joke, and
put down nonsense, but a little persuasion usually resulted in the real
tastes of the writer being inscribed.
That woman ls now noted for being
a most popular and successful hostess.
I and an invitation to her house parties
is always eagerly sought. She herself ascribes this success entirely to.
the Insight gained by her guest book
Into the fads and fancies and the personal peculiarities and idiosyncrasies
Of her friends.
