"Yes," answered that Individual. "I
shipped under an assumed nnme for
various reasons, and desire not to bo
known. You will do well to keep my
■ceret,"
"Do I understand that you are Master Charles Brnndon, the king's
friend?" asked Bradhurst.
"I am," wub tlie answer.
"Then, sir, I must nsk your pnrdon
for the way you have beeu treated.
We of course could not know It, but a
mnn must expect trouble when ho attaches himself to a woninn." It ls a
wonder tho flashes from Mnry's eyes
did not strike the old sendog dead. He,
however, did not see tbem nnd went
on: "We are more thnn anxious that bo
valiant u knight as Sir Charles Brandon should ko with us, nud hope your
reception Will not drive you buck. But
us to tbe lady, you see already the re
suit of her presence, and, much its we
want you, we cannot tnke her. Aside
from the general trouble which a woninn takes with her everywhere"—Mary would not even look nt tbe creature
—"on shipboard there ls another and
greater objectlou. It Is snld, you know,
among sailors tbnt a woman on board
draws bad luck to certain sorts of
ships, aud every sailor would desert
before we could weigh anchor lf It
were known tbls lady was to go with
us. Should they find lt out ln mldocenn
a mutiny would be suro to follow, and
Clod only knows what would happen,
Por her sake lf for no other reason
take ber ashore at once."
Brnndon snw only too plainly the
truth that he had really seen all the
time, but to which he had shut bin
eyes, and, throwing Mary's cloak over
her shoulders, prcpnred to go ashore.
As they went over the side and pulled
off a great shout went up from tbe ship
far more derisive than cheering, and
tbe men at tbe onrs looked at each otber askance aud smiled. Wbnt a predicament for a princess! Brandon cursed
himself for having been such a knave
mid fool ns to allow this to happen.
He hnd known the danger all the time,
and bis act could not be chargeable to
ignorance or a failure to see the probable consequences. Temptation and selfish desire hnd given blm temerity in
place of Judgment.
When the princess stepped ashore, lt
seemed to her as If the heart in ber
breast was a different nnd separate
organ from tbe one she had carried
aboard.
Ab the boat put off again for the ship
Its crew gave a cheer coupled with
some vile advice, for which Brandon
would gladly hnve run tbem through,
each and every one. He had to swallow
his chngrln and anger and renlly
blamed no one but himself, tflough lt
wns torture to blm that tbls girl should
be subjected to sucb Insults and he
powerless to avenge tbem. The news
hnd spread from the wharf like wildfire, nnd on their wny bnck to the
Bow and String there enme from small
hoys and hidden voices such exclamations as: "Look at the womnn ln man's
clothing!" "Isn't.he n beautiful mnn?"
"Look nt him blush!" and others too
conrse to be repeated. Imagine tbe humiliating situation, from which there
Wns no escape.
At last they reached the Inn, whither
their chests soon followed them, sent
by Bradhurst, together with their passage money, which he very honestly refunded.
Mary soon donned her woman's attire, of which she bad a supply ln her
chest, and nt least felt more comfortable without the jack boots. She bad
made her toilet alone for the first time
ln her life, having no maid to help her,
and wept ob she dressed, for tbls disappointment wns like plucking tbe very
heart out of her. Her hope had been
ao high tbat the fall was ull tbe harder. Nuy, even more; hope hud become
fruition to her when tbey were once
a-sblpboard, and fnilure rlgbt at tlio
door of success mude lt doubly hnrd to
bear. It crushed ber, and where before

He waved hf« trophy on high,
enmc. ner uptrlt asserted Itself, and
she stamped her foot and swore upon
her soul lt should never bo—never, nover, so long as she had strength to light
or voico to cry "Not" Tbe thought of
this marriage and of tbo loss of Brnndon was painful enough, but there
came another, entirely new to her and
infinitely worse.
Hastily arranging her dress she went
In search of Brandon, whom she quickly found and took to ber room.
After elosina the door ahe laid: "I
tbougbt I hnd reached tbe pinnacle of
disappointment and pain wben compelled to leave the ship, for lt meant
thnt I should lose you and hnve to marry Louis of Prance. But I bave found
thnt there Is still a possible pain more
poignant than either, and I cannot bear
It; so I come to you—you who are the
grent cure for all my troubles. Oh,
that I could lay them hero all my life
long," and she put her head upon hi*
breast, forgetting wbat sbo had Intended to say.
"Wbnt ls the trouble, Mary?"
"Oh, yes I I thought of that marriage
nnd of losing you, and then, oh, Mary
Mother! 1 thought of some other womnn having you to herself. I conld tee
hor with you, and I wns jealous—I
think they cull It. I have heard of the
pangs of Jenlousy, and lf the fear of a
rival Is so great what would tbe reality
be? It would kill me; I could not endure it.' I cannot endure even tbls, aud
I want you to swear thnt"—
Brnndon took her ln his arms as she
began to weep.
"I will gladly swear by everything I
hold sacred tbat no otlier woman thnn
you shall ever be my wife. If I cannot
hnve you, be sure you hnve spoiled
every otber womnn for me. There ls
but one ln all tbe world—but one. I can
at least save you that pain."
Sbe then stood on tiptoes to lift her
lips to him and said: "I give you the
same promise. How you must have
suffered when you thought I was to
wed another."
After a pause she went on: "But lt
might have been worse—that ls, It
would be worse If you should marry
some other woman; but tbat Is all settled now and I feel easier. Then 1
might bave married the old French
king, but that, too, Is settled, and we
can endure the lesser pain. It nlways
helps us when we are able to think lt
might have been worse."
Brandon might have escaped from
England in the Royal Hind, for the
wind hnd come up shortly nfter they
left tho ship, and tbey could see the
sails Indistinctly through tbe gloom as
she got under way. But he could not
leave Mary alone, nnd had made up his
mind to take ber buck to London and
march straight into tbe jaws of death
with her lf the klng'B men did not soon
come.
He knew thnt a debt to folly bears,
no grace, nnd was ready with bis principal aud usance.

CHAPTER XVIII.
TO  THE  TOWER.
HETHER or not Brandon would
have found some way to deliver the princess snfely home
nnd still mako bis escape I
canuot say, as be soon bnd uo choice in
tbe matter. At midnight a body of
yeomen from the Tower took possession
of the Bow and String nnd enrried
Brandon off to London without communication with Mary. She did not know
of bis arrest until next morning, when
she wns Informed that she wns to follow Immediately, and her henrt was
nearly broken.
Hero again was trouble for Mury.
Bhe felt, however, thut flip two great
questions, the marriage of herself to
Louis, and Brandon to nny other person, were, as she called It, "settled,"
and was almost content to endure this
as a mere putting off of her desires, a
meddlesome and impertinent Interference of the fates, who would soon
learn with whom they were dealing
and amend their conduct
Sbe did not understand the consequences for Brandon, nor that the fates
would have to change their purpose
very quickly or something would happen worse even than his marriage to
another woman.
On the second morning after leaving
Bristol Brandon reached London and,
as he expected, was seut to the Tower.
The next evening Ludy Mnry arrived
and was taken down to Greenwich.
The girl's fair name was of course
lost, but, fortunately, that goes for little with a princess—since no one would
believe thnt Brandon had protected her
against himself as valiantly and honorably as he would against another. The
princess being much more unsophisticated tban tbo courtiers were ready to
believe never thought of saying anything to establish her Innocence or virtue, and ber slleuca was put down to
shame and taken as evidence against
her.
Jane met Mary at Windsor, nnd of
course there was a great flood of tear*.
Upon arriving at the palace the girls
were left to themselves, upon Mary'*
promise not to leave her room, but by
the next afternoon she, having been
unable to leuru anything concerning
Brandon, broke her parole and went
out to see tbe king.
It never occurred to Mary that Brandon might suffer death for attempting
to run awny with her. She knew only
too well that she alone was to blame,
not only for that but for all tbat bad
taken place between tbem, and never
for one moment thought that he might
be punlBbed for her fault, even admitting there was fault ln any one, which
she wns by no menns ready to do.
Tlie trouble In her mind growing out
of a lack of news from Brandon was of
a general nature, and the possibility of
his death had no place in her thoughts.
Nevertheless for the second time Brandon had been condemned to die for lier
sake. The klng'B seal had stamped
the warrant for the execution and the
headsman had sharpened his ax and
could almost count the golden fee for
bis butchery.
Mary found the king playing card*
with D'1 Longuevllle. There was a
roomful of courtiers, and as she entered she was the target for every
eye, but she was on familiar ground
now and did not care for tbe glance*
nor tho observers, most of whom she
despised. She was tbe princess again
and full of self confidence, so ibe went
straight to the object of her visit, the
klug. alio bad not made up her mind
just what to say flrst, there wo* so
much, but Henry saved her tbe trou.
ble. He, of course, was ln a great rage
and denounced Mary's conduct as unnatural and treasonable, the latter, ln
Henry's mind, being n crimo many
times greater than the breaking of ull
the commandments put together In one
fell, composite act. All this the king
had communicated to Mary by the lips
of Wolsey the evening before, and
Mary had received lt with a silent
scorn that would have withered any
one but tbe worthy bishop of York. As
I snid, when Mary approached her
brother he saved her the trouble of deciding where to begin by speaking first
himself, and bis words were of a part
with his nnture, violent, cruel nnd vulgar. He abused ber and called lier all
tho vile nnmes ln bis ample vocabulary of billingsgate. The queen was
present ond aided and abetted with a
word uow nud then, until Henry, with
her help, nt last succeeded ln working
himself Into a towering passion and
wound up by cnlllug Mnry a vile wanton ln plainer terms than I like to
write. This aroused all tbe antagonism ln the girl, and thero was plenty
of it. She feared Henry no more thun
she feared mc. Her eyes flashed a fire
that made even the klug draw back
as she exclaimed: "You give me that
name and expect me to remember you
aro my brother? There aro words that
make a mother bate ber firstborn, and
that ls one. Tell me what I have done
to deserve lt? I expected to bear of Ingratitude and disobedience and all tbat,
but supposed you bad at least some
traces of brotherly feeling—for ties of
blood are bard to break—oven lf you
have of late lost all semblance to man
or king."
This was hitting Henry hnrd, for lt
was beginning to be tbe talk ln every
mouth that he was leaving all the affairs of state to Wolsey and spending
his time ln puerile amusement "The
toward hope which at all poynteB appeared lu the younge Kynge" was beginning to look, after all, like nothing
more than the old time royal cold fire,
made to consume but not to warm tbe
nation.
Henry looked at Mary with the stare
of a baited bull.
"If running off in male attire nnd
stopping at Inns and boarding ships
with a common captain of the guard
doesn't justify my accusation and
stnmp you what you are, I do not
know what would."
Even Henry snw her Innocence lu her
genuine surprise. Sbe was silent for a
little time, and I, stauding close to ber,
could plainly see tbat this phase of the
question had never before presented Itself.
She hung her head for a moment and
then spoke: "It may be true, as you
say, that what I have done will lose
me my fair name—I bad never thought
of lt ln tbat light—but lt ls also true
that I am Innocent and have done no
wrong. You may not believe me, but
you can ask Master Brandon"—here
the king gave a great laugh, and of
course the courtiers joined lu.
"It ls nil very well for you to laugh,
but Master Brandon would not tell you
n lie for your crown." Gods! I could
have fallen on my knees to a faith like
that "What I tell you ls true. I trusted him so completely that the fear ot
dishonor at his hands never suggested
Itself to me. I knew be would cure for
and respect me. I trusted him, nntl my
trust wns not misplaced. Of how many
of these creatures who laugh when the
king laughs could I say as much?"
And Henry knew she spoke the truth,
both concerning herself nud the courtiers.
With downcast eyes she continued:
"I suppose, nfter all, you are partly
right in regard to me, for it was bis
honor that saved me, not my own, nnd
If I am not whnt you called mo I have
Master Brandon to thank—not myself."
"We will thank him publicly on Tower hill dny nfter tomorrow at noon,"
said the king, with his accustomed delicacy, breaking the news of Brandon's
sentence as abruptly as possible.
With a look of terror in her eyes
Mary screamed: "What! Charles Brnu-
don—Tower bill?—You nre going to
kill him?"
"I think we will," responded Henry.
"It usually has that effect to separate
the head from the body and quarter
the remains to decorate the four gates.
Wo will take you up to London lu a
day or two and let you see his beautiful head on tbe bridge."
"Behead—quarter—bridge! Lord Je-
_u!" She could not grasp tlie tbougbt
She tried to speak, but the words
would not come. Iu a moment she became more coherent and the words
rolled from her lips as a mighty Hood
tide pours back through the arches of
London bridge.
"Y'ou shall not kill bim. He ls blameless. Y'ou do not know. Drive these
gawking fools out of the room, and I
will tell you all." The king ordered
the room cleared of everybody but
Wolsey, Jano and myself, who remained at Mary's request When nil
wore gone, tho princes* continued:
"Brother, this man ls in no way to
blame. It Is all my fault—my fault
thut he loves mc, my fault tbnt be trletl
to run awny to New Rpuln with ate. It
may bo that 1 have done wrong nnd
Hint my conduct bus been unmnislenly,
hut I could not help it. from the llrst
lime I ever saw him In the lints with
you at Windsor there was a gnawing
hunger In my heart beyond my control.
I supposed of course that day he would
contrive some wny to be presented to

"You did?"
"Yes, but he made no effort at all,
and when we met he treated me as lf I
were an ordinary girl."
"He did?"
"Yes."
"Horrible."

lead the sarcasm, and continued: "That
made me all tbe more Interested In
him, since it showed that he was different from the wretches who beset
yon and me with their flattery, and I
soon began to seek him on every occasion. This Is an unmaideuly history I
am giving, I know, but It Is the truth
and must be told. I was satisfied at
flrst lf I could only be in tbe same
room with him and see his face and
hear his voice. The very air he breathed was like an elixir for me. I made
every excuse to have him near me. I
naked him to my parlor—you know
about that—and—and did all I could to
be with him. At flrst be was gentle
and kind, but soon, I tblnk, he saw the
dawning danger In both our hearts, as
I, too, saw It, and he avoided me ln
every way he could, knowing tbe trouble lt held for us both. Ob, be was tbe
.wiser! And to think to what I have
brought him. Brother, let me die for
him—I who alone am to blame. Take
my life aud spare blm—spare blm! He
was the wiser, but I doubt lf all the
wisdom ln the world could have saved
us. He almost Insulted me once in the
park—told me to leave—when lt hurt
him more tban me, I am now sure, but
he did lt to keep matters from growing
worse between us. I tried to remember
the affront, but could not, and had he
struck me I believe I should have gone
back to him sooner or luter. Ob, lt was
all my fault! I would not let blm save
himself. So strong was my feeling that
I could bear his silence no longer, and
one day I went to him ln your bedchamber anteroom and fairly thrust
myself and my love upon him. Then,
after be was liberated from Newgate,
I could not induce him to come to me,
so I went to him and begged for his
love. Then I coaxed blm Into taking
me to New Spain and would listen to
no excuse and hear no reason. Now
live* there another man wbo would
have taken so much coaxing?"
"No, by heaven, your majesty!" said
Wolsey, who really hnd a kindly feeling for Brandon and would gladly save
bis life lf by so doing be would not Interfere with any of his own plans and
Interests. Wolsey's heart was naturally
kind when lt cost him nothing, nntl
much has been related of him wblcb,
to say the least, tells a great deal more
than the truth. Ingratitude always re-
colls upon the Ingrnte, and Henry's loss
was greater tbau Wolsey's when Wolsey fell.
Henry really liked or, rather, admired Brandon, as bad often been
shown, but bis nature was incapable
of real affection. The highest point he
ever reached was admiration, often
quite extravagant for n time, but usually short lived, as naked admiration is
apt to be. If be hnd affection for nny
oue, lt was for Mary. He could not but
see the justice of his sister's position,
but he had no intention of allowing
justice ln the sense of right to Interfere
with Justice ln the sense of tbe king's
will.
"Yon have been playing the devil nt
a great rate," he said. "You have disobeyed your brother and your king,
have disgraced yourself, have probably made trouble between us ond
France, for lf Louis refuses to take
you now I will cram you down his
throat, and by your own story have led
a good man to tbe block. Quite a budget of evils for one woman to open. But
I have noticed that the trouble a woman can make Is ln proportion to ber
beauty, and no wonder my little sister
has made so much disturbance. It ls
strange, though, that he should so affect you. Master Wolsey, surely there
has been witchery here. He must have
used lt abundantly to cast sucb a spell
aver my sister." Then turning to the
princess: "Wns lt at any time possible
for him to have given you a love pow-
ier, or did he ever mnke any signs or
passes over you?"
"Oh, no; nothing of that sort I never ate or drank anything which he
could possibly bave touched. And as to
signs and passes, I know he never
made any. Sir Edwin, you were always present when I was with him until nfter we left for Bristol. Did you
ever see anything of tbe sort?"
I answered "No," and she went on:
"Besides, I do not believe much ln
signs and passes. No one can affect
others unless he can Induce tbem to
eat or driuk something ln which he ha*
placed a love powder or potion. Then,
again, Master Brandon did not want
me to love him, and surely would not
bave used such a method to gain what
he could bave had freely without lt"
I noticed that Henry's mind had wan-
lered from what Mary was saying and
that bis eyes were fixed upon me with
> thoughtful, half vicious, Inquiring
itare that I did not like. I wondered
what was coming next but my curiosity was more than satisfied when the
king nsked, "So Caskoden wus present
it all your Interviews?"
Ah! Holy Mother! I knew what was
.•timing now and actually began to
ihrlvel with fright The king continued, "I suppose be helped you to escape?"
I tbougbt my dny had come, bnt
Mary's wit wa* equal to the occasion.
With an expression on her face of the
most dovelike Innocence she quickly
said:
"Oh, no! Neither he nor Jane knew
anything of lt We were afraid they
might divulge lt."

I am glad to learn that you knew

me, and I was glad, too, for bim to
learn It you mov be sure. .

ABOUT iHOBS.
larliett   Reference   Is   Found   In. th*
Old Testament.
What is regarded as the earliest reference to shoes ls found ln tho Old
Testament, where Abraham refuses to
take as much as a shoe latchet from the
King of Sodom. Among the Jews the
shoe played an important part ln many
social usages. When buying or selling
land lt was customary to deliver a shoe,
and the act of throwing down a shoe
on territory Implied occupancy. The
finding of sandals on Egyptian mummies proves that the wearing of shies
ls almost as old as the race itself. In
Venice ln the seventeenth century
overy lady of any pretension to fashion
or position wore what were called
"chopplnes," high clogs or pattens, to
elevate them from the ground. Thomas
Cr.iyat, a traveler who visited Venice
In 1611, says of them: "They are so
common ln Venice that no woman go-
eth without elthlr ln her house or
abroad. It is a thing made of wood
and covered with leather In sundry colors, some white, some red, some yellow. Many of them are curiously painted; some, also, of them have I seen
fairly gilt. There are many of these
chaplneys of a great height—even halt
a yard high and by how much the nobler a woman ls, by so much the higher
are her chaplneys. All their gentlewomen, and most of their wives and
widows that are of any wealth, are assisted or supported either by men or
women when they walk abroad, to the
end that they may not fall."
Fortunes havo been lavished upon
shoes. Men as widely apart ln every
circumstance of lifo as Sir Walter Raleigh and Caligula had their shoe* enriched with precious ston* to the value
of thousands of dollars. When the
tomb of Henry VI. of Sicily, who died
In 1197, was opened ln the Cathedral of
Palermo, shoes made of cloth of gold
and embroidered with pearls, were
found on the dead monarch's feet and
also on those of his queen. In the
time of Louis VI of France and the
oourtlers of Versailles were remarkable for their boots, tho tops of which
wore enormously large and wide and
were decorated with a profusion of
costly lace.
Even horseshoes have been made to
serve the purposes of extravagance and
display. Sablna Poppaea, the beautiful
and luxury-loving wife of the Roman
Emperor Nero, ls said to have had her
mules shod with gold. All the world
over horseshoes are supposed to possess some occult power of attracting
luck and warding off evil.

Feared the Feathers,
Lady Yarmouth, wbo was Miss Alice

material among her husband's tenantry. Ono day, it ls said, she was visiting a sick child, when tbe mother began
to tell a pitiful tale of the difficulties
she encountered ln "getting on," and
above all of the trouble she had with a
lodger, who, she said, at* her out of

"The flrst morning the man wa*

eggs very greedily. Egg after egg he
ate—three, four, Ave, six—and only th*

into the seventh egg my temper got the
better of me. 'Don't you ever eat th*

rhe Peculiar Language and Odd Cos*
tiiius of the People.
Of the strange scenes and customs of
the Basque country a traveler writes:
"I was struck by tbo way the women
walked and carried themselves. A fat
Did woman with a huge tray on her
head walked along at a swinging pace,
.houtlug her wares meanwhile at tbe
| top of ber voice. I saw a woman carrying ou her head lirst of all a large
tray of fruit (Its size can be imagined
wheu I tell you that lt was afterward
ber stall). Ou tha top of tbls wero a
basket of washing and a big umbrella
to be used to cover the stall. Then ln
her left hand sbe carried a supplementary stall, and by the other she
led a little child which could just reach
the mother's hand by holding Its own
up as high as it could stretch.
"I was waiting once at a little wayside lun ln the village of Ascaln when
I saw an old lady, followed by two
great fat white pigs. They all three
waddled over to the village pump, and
then, procuring some wator ln a pall,
tho old lady proceeded to wash ber
charges. She cleaned them most assiduously—eyes, ears, tall, back, hind
quarters and feet
"There ls a dignity of carriage about
all the women ln tbls country. I fancied lt might be due to the fact that
formerly, before the 'Code Napoleon'
came Into operation, the law obliged
tbe firstborn, whether boy or girl, to
inherit the patrimony and continue the
head of the family, the husband taking
the wife's name when the Inheritor was
a woman, thus giving the woman a
perfect equality from her birth. The
matrons are not less beautiful than the
younger women.
"Quite unlike any otber language la
that of the Basques. Although when
hearing the people talk a Spanish sound
seems to be occasionally emitted, lt 1*
not really at all like Spanish. I was
amused to find that 'no' 1* 'ess' ln
Basque, and when I asked what 'yes'
was I thought at flrst the answer was
'nn,' which would hove been very curious, but lt turned out to be 'ba,' with
the 'b' softly pronounced."
A PERFUME THAT SMELLS.
Tho  Awful   Odor  That   Comes  From
Pure Attar of Rosea.
The perfumer took from bla desk a
small flask of copper.
"In flasks like thl* attar of roses
comes to us," he said. "Attar of roses
la worth from (10 to $25 an ounce, according to the market Thl* flask I*
empty now, but In lt a little odor still
lingers."
Tbe visitor smiled delightedly. He
had never smelt pure attar of rose* before. Now he unscrewed tbe stopper
and, closing bis eyes, with an ecstatic
look be applied bis nostrils to tho flask.
But only for an Instant. Then he
threw back bl* bead, twisting bl*
features Into a grimace of disgust, and
he exclaimed:
"Oarbagel Bone yards! Glue factories!"
Tho perfumer laughed.
"AH esientlal oil* smell like that," ho
■aid. "Yet no good perfume can ba
made without tbem."
Ho took from a shelf a cut glass jar
filled with a thick, yellowish oil that
looked like petroleum partly refined.
"In thl* jar," he said, "there ar* fortr
ounces or pure aitar or roses worm
over $500. You know how the attar
smells alone. Now watch me make a
rlcb perfume by adding things to lt."
He put a few drops of the attar Into
a vial. Ho filled tbe vial with spirits
of musk, another of orris, then one of
Hi-roll, one of rose, of violet, of orange,
of vanilla, and, finally, tbe oil of cloves
and bcrgamot.

Ancient Bridge Superstition.
A primitive notion existed among the
Romans and other races that a bridge
was au offense and Injury to tbe river
god, as it saved people from being
drowned while fordlug or swimming
across and robbed tbe deity of a certain
number of victims which were his due.
For many centuries In Borne propitiatory offerings of human victims were
made every year to the Tiber. Men
and women were drowned by being
bound nnd flung from the wooden Sub-
Hclnn bridge, which, till nearly tbe end
of the republican period, was tbe one
and only bridge across the Tiber in
Borne.

AGONY AFTER EATING
I suffered so much with Indigestion
that my life had become a burden,"
says Miss Nellie Archibald, of Sheet
Harbor, N. S. "Every time I took even the slightest meal it caused me
hours of agony. The trouble caused a
choking sensation in the region of my
heart, which seriously alarmed me.
My Inability to properly digest my
food, left me so weak and run down
that I could not perform even the
lightest housework, and I would tire
out going up a few steps slowly. I
sought medical aid, and tried several
medicines, but without getting the
least benefit. My slstar, who lived at
a considerable distanco, and who had
been an Invalid, wrote us about this
time that she had been curod through
using Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, nnd
this decided me to give them a fair
trial, practically ns a last resort. In
tho courso of a fow weeks there was a
notable change In my condition, and
1 began to relish my meals. Prom
that on I began to gain now strength,
nntl by tbo time I had used seven
boxes, all signs of the trouble had vanished and I wns once moro enjoying
good health, and I have not since had
any return of tlio trouble."
Pr. Williams' Pink Pills cure Indigestion, because they make the rich
red blood that brings tone and
strength lo the stomach. Nearly all
the common ailments are dao to bad
blood, and when the bad lilood is turned Into good blood by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, the trouble disappears.
Thnt is why theso pills cure anaemia,
dizziness, heart palpitation, g"neral
debility, kldnoy trouble, rheumatism,
sciatica, lumbago, and nervous troubles, such as neuralgia, paralysis and
fit. Vitus dance. That ls why they
bring ouse and comfort at all stages of
womanhood and girlhood, and cure
their secret aliments when the blood
supply becomos weak, scanty or Irregular. But you must gat the genuine
pills. Substitutes and imitations which
some dealers offer never cure anything. When you buy the pills, see
that Ihe full name Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People is printed on the
wrapper around each box. Sold by all
dealers or sent by mail at 50 cents n
box, or six boxes for $2.50, by writing

Admiral Dickens during the sham

one morning as a sailor staggered
past him with a bale of hay on his
back. "He makes me think," said the
Admiral, "of another sailor, a British
one, whom I saw one day at Gibraltar.
He, too, had a load of hay, and was
tolling with lt up from the little fishing village that lies at the foot of the
great rock. I talked with him a little
while, and as wo parted I said: " 'Who
are you, my man? What job do you
hold here;' 'Well,' the sailor answered, as he took up the hay again,
'I uBed to consider myself a British
bluejacket, but I'm dashed if 1 don't

THB VALUB OF A HEN S EOf].
Here are some facts and figures relative to a hen's egg which may not be
without Interest to the student of poultry possibilities. Its average length is
two and twentyseven hundredths inches its average diameter at the broad
end one and seventy-two hundredths
Inches, and it weighs about one-eighth
of a pound. The pullets are smaller
than those of old hens. The shell constitute about 11 per cent., the yolk
32 per cent, and the white 57 per cent,
of the total egg. Chemically speaking,
an egg consists of two nutrients—protein and fat—together with some water and a small quantity of mineral
matter. Popular belief to the contrary there is no difference in the
nutritive qualities of eggs with dark
shells and those with light. Their
flavor is affected by the food of tho
fowl, for good or for evil. Exhaustive
experiments by well equipped investigators proves that the egg deserves
Its reputation as an easily assimilated
and highly nutritious food, if eaten
raw or lightly cooked. Such experiments also show that eggs at twelve
cents per dozen are a cheap source
of nutrients; at sixteen cents somewhat expensive, and at twenty-five
cents nnd over, highly extravagant.
The basis of comparison was the market price of standard flesh foods considered ln relation to their nutritive
elements. But thoro is r physiological constituent of eggs which is of
great value, yet lt defies the search of
the scientist or the Inquisition of the
statistician, and that ls there palata-
bility. Unless a food, however rich ln
proteins, is relished, it loses much of
Its value, while, per contra, a less
chemically desirable food that Is enjoyed becomes valuable by reason of
that fact.

Which  Torture Children  are Soon  Entirely Cured
by the Use of
DR. CHASE'S OINTMENT
Especially during the teething period, children are subject to Eczema,
scald head and various forms of skin
disease, which cause the keenest su'
ferlng to themselves, as well as anxiety to their parents.
There is no treatment so successful
as Dr. Chase's Ointment, and as eczema always tends to become chronic
and last for years, prompt oure is of
the utmost Importance.
Mr. C. Wiley, who Is employed as
cooper by the Kenuedy & Davis Milling Company, Lindsay, Ont., states:
"I used Dr. Chase's Ointment for eczema on my little girl some few years
ago, and soon brought about a thorough and permanent cure. She had
suffered for considerable time. Dr.
Chase's Ointment was the only preparation to prove effective. I cannot
speak too highly of Dr. Chase's Oiut-
mont, as it certainly offooted a prompt
and permanent curo in this case."
MrB. P.    Clarke,   Belmont, Man.,
writes:—"My baby had eczema on her
ear. The sore was very bad and nothing seemed to do her muqh good.
Hearing of the remarkable cure Dr.
Chase's Ointment waB making we
sent for some and after the third application the sore bogan to heal. I
am glad to say tbat lt is quite well
now and wo give the credit to Dr.
Chase's Ointment. We cannot recommend this preparation too highly."
Any mother who once becomes acquainted with the merits of Dr.
Chase's Ointment would not think of
being without it In the house. Where
there ls a baby or small children lt ls
of daily value as a means of curing
skin irritations and eruptions, chafing
and all sorts of burns and sores.

" Psychine " differs radically from

methods of curing disease, otherwise
it would be just like scores of others,
without any exceptional merits.
But **Psychine" possesses virtues
of healing, that no other preparation in the world does.
There never has been in the history of medicine, such
a truly remarkable remedy, for the prompt and complete
cure of obstinate coughs and lung trouble. There is
nothing else just like it; or nothing else one half
so good. Thousands of men and women readily and
enthusiastically give testimony to prove the statement.

The quickest way to get away from
tne counter ls to worK hard, be polite
and obliging at the counter. The
trouble with people wbo complain that
they cannot get above the positions
they are In ls that they can not see
that the step to the thing above them
Is in the thing they are doing, In their
manner of doing lt, that the opportunity for advancement Is ln the promptness, the thoroughness, the efficiency
they show in the positions they now
occupy.
Of two clerks working side by side
ln a store, one knows that the best
part of his salary ls not found ln IUb
pay envelope, but ln the opportunity
to learn the business, to extract from
lt the secrets which his employer may
have paid a fortune for, besides putting his life into It. He is all eyes,
all ears, all the time thinking of better methods, improved ways of doing
things, and he finally becomes a proprietor himself. Tho othor sees nothing ln his life but drudgery and a
perpetual clerkship.
If you have a hundred acres of land
and only four people to support, as one
correspondent states thet he has, If
you have enough brain, ambition, determination, and grit, you can not only
support the people depending on you,
but you can also give yourself a good
education,—for you can buy all the
books you need,— and lf you are a
good manager, If you have system,
you can have all the leisure you require for study.
If you are made of the stuff that
wins nobody can keep you back, for If
you do not find your chance where
you are, you will find it somewhere
else. But remember that your achievement cannot rise higher than your
resolution. So long as you think you
are tied down so that you can not
move, you will never get up or get on.
The man who acknowledges that he
ls a "perpetual clerk" will never become manager or proprietor of anything until he changes his conviction.
His own lack of confidence and push,
not clrcnmstances, is the chain which
binds him.
It Is as natural that we should obtain the thing we long for with all

GARDENING    AS    EXERCISE    FOR

I'm sorry for the woman whose standards, social or physical, do not permit her to handle a hoe. It seems to
me as graceful an instrument as a

get so much more done with a hoe!
It Is but a poor spirited person who
will "putter with flowers" but dare
not work In the vegetable garden for
fear that some one may think she has
to do lt. If the neighbors are scandalized because I turn tho baby loose In
the shade on the grass antl push th

lt is their lookout. Perhaps, now, they
are dying to dig and have not quite
dared for fear of my scathing criticism! Let them know the worst. I
purposo to dig, to rake, to sow, to
weed, to hoe, and to harvest, for the
sake of what I get out of it in mental
growth, flowers, exercise, aesthetic uplift, and vegetables. I shall take my
turn, too, with the bicycle, the tennis
racket, and the golf clubs; but next
to the go-cart the wheel hoe is my
favorite vehicle!

How Big Is
Two Cents?
The average consumption offlour,
per year, by each person in Canada,
is about one barrel (196 lbs.).
Suppose you use t an inferior flour
at a saving of say 75 cents over the
cost of a barrel of Royal Household
Flour, that is just tl/i cents a month
—less than two cents per week.
But an inferior flour can yield only
a portion of the nutriment you get out
of "Royal Household" because cheap
flours are poorly milled, contain a
greater proportion of bran and shorts
—the granules are not uniform—the
bread is heavy—the texture is coarse
—the flavor is tasteless or poor—the
nutriment is not in it
ROYAL HOUSEHOLD FLOUR,
being perfectly milled, is uniform in
texture—makes bread that is light
and waferlike—white as snow—finely
flavored—highest in nutriment
"Royal Household" is electrically
purified and sterilized—backed up and
guaranteed by its makers' reputation.

At the Council meetiug 011 Tuesday
evening, Alderman Williams, supported
by Alderman Morton, brought up the
question of the unsafe condition of the
bridges over False Creek, nud uiovet
that the Dominion Ooverumeut bo asked for $60,000 to assist in building safe
bridges. The rest of the Conncil voted
It down—to await the report on False
Creek survey, It being deemed tho first
Importance. Iu the meantime tin
people who travel over the bridges can
run the risk of the bridges goiug dowu.
Probably some forthcoming candidates
in the approaching civic election dt-sin
to have in their platforms "NewBridgos
over False Creek." The Ottawa Government may yet use False Creek improvements for campaign purposes. There
can not be any too much haste in pro
Tiding safe bridges over False Creek.
and much delay in the matter may prove
* criminal negligence.
The residents of Mt. Pleasant living
below Fifth avenue and between
Ontario and Bridge streets—aud they
are mauy—have a real grievance, to
which the attention of the Council is
called. The City Crematory located in
this district, is believed to be responsible
fur the many cases of typhoid fever in
that vicinity. Wc are informed that
dray loads of garbage, decaying fruits
and vegetables are daily added to the
already monstrous mass which menaces
health and life. If this coudition is uot
soon improved Vancouver may suffer
as Winnipeg has aud does suffer from
epedemic after epidemic of typhoid
A private citizen would be summoned
; and fined—rightly too—for allowing
refuse of such a nature to remain one
day on his premises, bnt the City conveys load after load of disease-spreading
1 garbage, decayed fish, etc., to a residential portion of the city, to the risk of
health and lives.
Innumerable storage reservoirs and
vast  distribution   systems   more  sup-
• plies of pure water bear witness to
' the enormous debt which public
' health science owes to engineering
' science as do proper street construc-
' tion and, still more, those splendid
: systems  of sewerage  with   which   so
many modern cities are equipped, and
which not only serve to remove quickly the dangerous liquid waste of hu-
• man and animal life, but also keep
low and wholesome the level of the
ground    water,    reducing    dampness
•" and promoting dryness of the ciivir-
' oirment, and   thereby    strengthening
' that 'physiological      resistance      by
means'of which the human mcchan-
'-laW fights against the attacks of infectious   disease.      Nor   do   tlie   services of engineering science end here,
for  the  fluid content  of the  sewers
must   always  be   safely   disposed   of,
and   sew.age,purification  is   to-day  a
£ problem t,of  engineering   science   no
• less important or difficult than that of
water purification.     These same pro-
. cesses of the purification of water
and sewage arc matters of so much
moment in public health science
that in almost every country experiment stations are now maintained
at public and private expense fnr the
purpose of working out the most scientific methods ol purification.

MISSES'
AND       CHILDREN'S
WEAR
A great interest is being shown
this season in fur imitations and
crushed plush and velvet garments
for children's wear. White, grey and
brown arc said to have been the best
sellers.
Fur imitations are used successfully in the trimming of many of the
clolh garments brought out for infants and children this season. The
popularity of fur in a general way
is also noticed in the production of
children's goods. Plain cloth, bouclt:
nnd astrachan coats are trimmed with
real fur.
Velvets, velveteens and crushed
plushes are still interesting the trade.
These are shown in their full complement of colors—blue, cardinal,
green and brown showing the best
results. One of the best develope-
nieuts in the sale of crushed plush
Roods is a sudden and general demand for greens. Several of the
green shades have been used extensively in the manufacture of ladies'
garments, which has everywhere reduced manufacturers' stocks. In the
course of two weeks many green
crushed plush coats as well as velveteen garments have been ordered for
children.
MORE ABOUT LONG GLOVES.
There will be a good demand for
long glovos all winter, doubtless, as
the short sleeved waist is popular,
but at the same time the short length
must not be neglected. Some excellent gloves with fancy stitching
mostly in contrasting colors are offered the trade. These will make a
nice line for a variety and will be
surer sellers than gloves of odd colors
which are likely to be slow in moving
especially in smaller localities.
Stick Pincushion—A piece of heavy
cardboard four by two inches antl
oval in shape, covered with white
silk or satin, is used for the bottom.
A piece of feat'licrbtone, cut largf
enough to encircle the cardboard bottom and with the ends stitched together makes the framework for the
top. A case stuffed with emery dust
or sawdust is placed in the frame,
and this is covered with flowered silk
(see illustration). The bottom and
lop are glued together and furtlher
held in place by four small brass-
headed nails or screws which are
nailed through the bottom and serve
as small legs. A bard of fancy gilt
braid or galloon finishes the edge.
Double Bag Made of Holly Ribbon
—About 22 inches of holly ribbon
3'/_ inches wide is used for this bag
which is not lined. A one-quarter-
inch hem is put in at each end, and
then the ribbon is turned on the
wrong side and folded so that the
ends a little more than meet; baste
the sides together and overhand with
fine close stitches. Turn onto the
right side antl run two drawstrings
in opposite directions so that one
piece is tied at each end. Three-
quarters of a yard of ribbon is needed
for these drawstrings. A bag such
as this is nice for small pieces of crocheting or tatting and will also make
an  excellent button-bag.
' Ribbon Box—This is made of an
oblong wedding-cake box divided into
two sections. The box is \Y\ inches
long and 2 inches wide. The top
which, as will be seen, fits over the
bottom piece, is covered with a piece
of flowered silk, the edges of which
are simply turned over the inside
ind fastened with paste. Two holes
ure punched through the top of the
box and eyelets arc worked in the
piece of silk, and two little buttonhole bnrs in which a bodkin is slipped
arc worked on one side. It is best to
work these bars before the silk is
pasted on the cover, but tlie eyelets
may be made then or worked after
everything is finished. Fresh, dainty
ribbons are a necessity nowadays
when almost everyone wears underwear which is drawn up and fastened
with ribbon, and a box like this is
one of the prettiest ways of keeping
it.

Dr. Machle, the American missionary who escaped from Lienchow,
the scene of the l:.tost murJer of
missionaries in China, has reached
Hongkong and tells a horrible story
of the outrages committed upon the
helpless men and women of the mission station. Two women, Miss
Chestnut and Mrs. Mackle, were
stripped of their clothing and exposed to the mockery of the Chinese
mob in a temple and then flttnginto
the river, where they were speared.
Mr. and Mrs. Peale also were exposed to the mob and afterwards
clubbed to death. These ever-recurring tragedies in China should prove
a sufficient warning to religious en
thusiasts who would risk their own
and their friends' lives in an entirely
hopeless effort to Christianize the
Chinese. To have any part in sending white women and children to
places in China where efficient pro
tection is not assured is to be guilty
of a crime. The Chinese never will
be persuaded to Christianity and no
good purpose is served by the hor
rible results of this ill-advised missionary business.—"The Week," Victoria, B. C.
The overcrowding of the medical
profession in Germany is a matter of
grave concern. There arc now in
the empire 20,200 physicians, which
doubles the number found in 1876.
In other words, there is one physician in Germany for every 1,700 in
habitants. In the city of Berlin 46
per cent of all the physicians have an
income of less than $700, and five
per cent of the whole number do not
have a sufficient income to return it
for taxation. On the other hand
in the legal profession in Germany
80 per cent of the lawyers have an
income exceeding $2,000. It is estimated that tlhe preparation of a
man for the duties of a physician in
Germany costs about $6,000, and thus
it is seen that the income is often
less than ten per cent of the fixed
charge on the capital invested. This
leaves practically nothing for the re-

We desire to know much more concerning the individual planets. Everybody asks;"Are 'the planets inhabited?" and no favorable answer
has yet been given. If one means
by the question, inhabited by such
beings as we are structurally, then
one can say that if one of us were
transported to any of the planets we
could not live there a minute. Some
like Jupiter, are too hot; others, like
the moon, too cold, or without air to
breathe or water to drink, or with
too great or too little gravity for our
bodies. One docs not need to assume
such likeness, especially since we
know something of the past history
of man and animals on the earth, adapted to it in form, size, structure,
habits and intelligence all correlated.
To assume intelligence of our type is
hardly allowable any more than for
structures like ours. Vertebrate
skeletons are not necesarily the only
form in which the intelligence of
high type may abide. The implements  and  skill  of  astronomers  arc

•ofcliless Light
There is no home too small to use Electric Light.   Every
dwelliug should use it—Everybody will use it.
The children—bless them—they can not upset the Electrio
Light and burn tbe honse dowu.    They cnn do no harm
whatever with Electric Light.
It can bo lighted or extinguished by a touch of a button
No lamps to clean ; no smell of coal oil; no disfigurement
of walls.
Wheu a small amount of light is needed, fi or 10 candle
power Lamps may be iustnlled, thus reducing the total
expense of light. .
Call and see us iu reference to installing Electric Light to
take the place of your Conl Oil Lamps.
