Happening In the Reign of His August Majesty King Henry llie Eighth
Kewr-tlen <*s,d Rendu.. Inlo Modem English From Sir Edwin
C-kikodcn*. Memoir
Copi/rtflM, ISM aad 1901, by the lUmen-Mcrrill Company
'_.>-* >i\
Above all, there was nn alarming
sense of uncertainty ln everything. Sbe
could hnrdly bring herself to believo
that Brandon would really go to New
Spain and that she would actually loso
him, although she did not waut him ns
yet—that ls, as a prospective husband.
Flashes of all sorts of wild schemes
tad begun to shoot through her anger
and grief when she stared ln the face
the prospect of her double separation
from him, her marriage to another aud
tho countless miles of fathomless sea
that would be between them. She could
endure anything better than uncertainty. A menacing future ls the keenest of nil tortures for any of us to hear,
but especially for a girl liko Mary.
Death Itself ls not so terrible ns tho
fear of lt.
Now, nbout this time there lived over
in Billingsgate Ward, tho worst part
of London, a Jewish soothsayer named
Grouche. He was also an astrologer
nnd had of late grown Into great fame
ns prophet of the future—a fortune
Hid fame rested on several remark-
nble nredlctions which had been fulfilled fo the letter, and 1 really think
the man had nome wonderful powers.
They Said ho was half Jew, half gypsy, ond, if there Is alchemy ln the mixing of blood, that combination should
surely produce something peculiar. The
city folk were said to have visited him
ln great numbers, and, notwithstanding the prlesta and bishops all condemned him as nn Imp of Satan nnd a
follower of witchcraft, many fine people, Including some court ladles, continued to go there by stealth In order
to tuke a dangerous, Inquisitive peep
into the future.
Mary hnd long wanted to seo this
Groucbo, at first out of mere curiosity,
but Henry, who was very moral—with
othor -people's consciences—would not
think of permitting lt Two ladles, Lady Chesterfield and Lady Ormoud, both
good and virtuous women, bad been detected ln such a visit and bad been disgraced and expelled from court ln the
most cruel manner by order of tbe
king himself.
Now, added to Mary's old time desire
to seo Grouche, came a longing to know
the outcome of the present momentous
complication of affairs tbat touched
ber so closely.
She could not wait for Time to unfold
himself and drop his budget of events
us be traveled, but she must plunge
ahead of him and know beforehand tbe
stores of tho fates, an Intrusion they
usually  resent    I need  not tell you
that was Mary's only object ln going,
nor that her heart was as pure as a
babe's, quite as chaste and almost as
Innocent    It ls equally true that tbe
large proportion of persons wbo visited
Grouche made his soothsaying an excuse.    The thought of how wretched
life would be with Louis had put Into
Mary's mind the thought of how sweet
It would be with Brandon.   Then came
tho wish  thst Brandon  had been  a
prince or even a great English nobleman, and then leaped up, all rainbow
nued, tne hope that he Uflgbt yet, by
reason of bis own great virtues, rise to
all of these aud sbe become bis wife.
But at the threshold of this fair castle
came knocking tho thought that perhaps he did not care for her ond had
deceived her to gain her favors.   Then
Bhe flushed with anger and swore to
herself she hated him and hoped nover
to see his face again.   And the castle
faded and was wafted away to the
realms of airy nothingness.
Ah, bow people will sometimes lie to
themselves, and sensible people at that!
So Mary wanted to see Grouche, flrst,
through curiosity, ln Itself a stronger
motive than we give lt credit for; second, to learn lf sho would be able to
dissuade Henry from tbe French marriage and perhaps catch a bint how to
do it, and last, but by no means least
to discover the state of Brandon's
heart toward her.
By this time the last named moUve
was strong onough to draw her any
whither, although she would not acknowledge lt, even to herself, and ln
truth hardly knew It so full are .we of
things we know not of.
So she determined to go to see
Grouche secretly and was confident she
could arrange tbe visit ln such a way
that lt would never be discovered.
One morning I met Jane, who told
me with troubled face tbat she and
Mary were going to London to make
somo purchases, would lodge at Bridewell House and go over to Billingsgate that evening to consult Grouche.

The court was all at Oreenwlcb, and

It was then, as now, no safe matter
for even a man to go unattended

that nest of water rats and cutthroats.
But Mary did not realize the full danger of tbe trip and would, as usual, allow nobody to tell ber.

Brandon did not see whero Buckingham hid himself, but soon the two Innocent adventurers camo down the
path attired lu the short skirts and bonnets of orange girls and let themselves
out nt tho gato. Buckingham followed
them, and Brandon quickly followed
him. The girls passed through a little
postern in the wall opposite Bridewell
Houso and walked rapidly up Fleet
ditch, climbed Ludgate hill, passed
Paul's church, turned toward the river
down Bennett hill, to tho left on
Thames street then on past the bridge,
following lower Thames street to the
neighborhood of Fish street hill, where
they took an alley leading, up toward
East Cheap to Groucho's bouse.
It was a brave thing for tho girl to
do and showed the determined spirit
that dwelt ln her soft white breast

the street at that time, strangely
enough, preferring to pay tho sixpence

a load of hay blocked tho streets, compelling them to squeeze betweeu the
houses and the hay. Ho could hardly
believe the girls had passed that way,
as he had not always been able to keep
them In view, hut had sometimes to
follow them by watching Buckingham.
He, however, kept as closo as possible and presently saw them turn down
Groucho's alley and enter his house.
Upon learning where they hnd stopped, Buckingham hurriedly took himself off, and liriuidoii waited for tlie
girls to como out. It seemed a very
long time that they were ln tbo wretched place, and darkness had well descended upon Loudon when tbey
Mary soon noticed that a man was
following them, and as sho did not
know who ha was became greatly
alarmed. The object of her Journey
had been accomplished now, so the
spur of a strong motive to keep ber
courage up wub lacking.
"Jane, some one Is following us," she
"Yes," answered Jane, with an un-
coucern that surprised Mary, for she
knew Jane was a coward from the top
of ber brown head to the tip of her
little pink heels.
"Oh, lf I had only taken your advice, Jane, nnd had never come to

too, that I came here only to learn the

Thoy hurried on, the mnn behind
them taking less care to romaln unseen
than he did when coming. Mary's
tears grew upon her as Bhe heard bis

by the arm.
"It ts all over with us, I know. I
would give everything I have or over
expect to havo ou earth for—for Mas-
tor Brandon ot this moment" She
thought of blm ob the one person best
able to defend her.
This was only too welcome an opportunity, and Jane said: "That ls

And she called to him before Mary

Mow uns aiecioBure operated in two
ways. Brandon's presence was, lt ls
true, Just what Mary had so ardently
wished, but the danger and therefore
tbe need was gone when she fouud that
the man who was following them had
no evil intent. Two thoughts quickly
flashed through the girl's mind. She
was angry with Brandon for having
cheated her out of so ninny favors and
for having slighted her love, as she
bad succeeded ln convincing herself
was the case, all, of which Grouche had
confirmed by telling her he was false.
Then she had been discovered ln doing
what she knew she should bave left
undone and what Bhe was anxious to
conceal from every one, and, worst of
all, had been discovered by the very
person from whom sho was moot "■'■*■'
lous to lime it
So she turned upon Jane angrily:
"Jane Bollngbroke, you shall leave me
as soon as we get back to Greenwich
for tills betrayal of my confidence."
Bhe was not afraid now that tho danger wob over, and feared no new danger with Brandon at hand to protect
her, for ln her heart she felt that to
overcome a fow fiery dragons nud n
company or so of giants would bo a
mere pastime to him. Yet see how
she treated him. The girls hod stopped
when Jane called Brandon, and ho was
at once by tbelr side with uncovered
head, hoping for Uud of course expecting a warm welcome. But even Brandon, with his fund of worldly philosophy, had not learned not to put hia
trust ln princesses, and his 'surprise
was benumbing when Mary turned
angrily upon him.
"Master Brandon, your Impudence ln
following us shall cost you dearly. We
do not desire your company, and will
thank you to leave us to our own affairs, as we wish you to attend exclusively to yours."
This from the girl who had given
him so much within less than a week!
Poor Brandon!
Jane, who had called him up and
Wns the cause of his following thom,
began to weep.
"Sir," said sbe, "forgive me, It was
not my fault She had Just sald"-
Slap came Mary's hand on Jane's
mouth, and Jane was marched off,
weeping bitterly.
The girls had started up toward East
Cheap when they left Grouehe'B, Intending to go home by an upper route,
nnd now they walked rapidly ln pint
direction. Brandon continued to follow them, notwithstanding what Mary
had said, and Bbe thanked him and hei
God ever nfter thnt he did.
They hnd been walking not more
than five minutes when, Just as the
girls turned a corner Into a Becluded
little street winding Its way among
the fish warehouses, four horsemen
passed Brandon In evident pursuit oi
them. Brandon hurried forward, but
before he reached the corner heard
screams of fright ond as he turned in-
to the street distinctly saw that two of
the men had dismounted and were try-
lug to overtake the fleeing girls. Frjghl
lent wings to tbelr feet, nnd, their short
skirts affording freedom to their limbs,
they were giving the pursuers a warm
little race, screaming at every step to
tho full limit of tbelr voices. How
they did run and scream! it was but a
moment till Brandon camo up with the
pursuers, who, all unconscious that
they ln turn wero pursued, did not expect an attack from the rear. The
men remaining oil horseback shouted
an alarm to tbelr comrades, but bo Intent were tho latter ln their pursuit
that they did not hear. One of the men
on foot fell dead, pierced through the
back of the neck by Brandon's sword,
before either was aware of his presence. The other turned, but wus a
corpso beforo he could cry out. The
girls had stopped a short distance
ahead, exhausted hy their flight. Mary
bad stumbled and fallen, but bad risen
again, and both were now leaning
against a wall, clinging to each other,
a picture of abject terror. Brandon
ran to the girls, hut hy the time he
reached them the two men on horseback were there also, hacking nway at
him from their saddles. Brandon did
his best to savo himself from being cut
to pieces and the girls from being trampled under foot by the prancing horses.

Work Already Tone As a Charity By
Dr. Barnardo—C. Klnloch Cooke Believe. He Would Weloome Govern,
ment Enterprise in This Matter-
Question of Training the Children
For ths Lifo Under New Conditions.
In the curretn number of the Empire
Review Mr. C. Klnloch Cooke propounds a BCheme for the emigration
of orphan and abandoned children to
Canada. Mr. Cooke's proposal ls that
the aim of thu Canadian Government
should bo to especially encourage emigration from the British Isles, and give
always a preference to the English-
speaking settler who ls a British subject before he lands In Canada, one
who is, ln fact a ready-made citizen
and assimilated at once into the unlive
population. Were this system of a human preference adopted he says we
should be spared the dangers which attend the Inroad of some of the worst
elements of European city populations.
Dr. Barnardo's Work.
Mr. Cooke's soheme deals only with
one phase of this question. It may
therefor* bs outlined. At the outset
It must not be supposed that the author claims originality for his plans.
All ore aware that Dr. Barnardo has
been carrying out a system of child
emigration for many years. Indeed
yesterday's paper announced that from
the Barnardo homo would come more
children this year than ever before.
But Dr. Barnardo's mission has been
carried on as a charity, not as a Government enterprise. He will be one
ef the first Mr. Cooke thinks, "to welcome a scheme which will relievo him
and all private institutions of tho burden now thrust upon them by the
Orphan  and  Deserted Children.
Tbe scheme concerns Itself solely
With children who for ono reason or
another become a oharge on the State,
but does not Include Inmates of reformatories or penal Institutions. These
Children consist of many thousands
who are committed by magistrates to
Industrial sohools to save them from
Injurious surroundings, and orphans
and ohlldren relieved without their
parents. "I feel sure," says tho writer, "that, properly trained and given
new surroundings, these children, lf
carefully selected, would make useful
oolonlsts. The work, however, would
have to be undertaken by a department of State ln this country, acting
with similar departments In the Colonies, each bearing a share of the cost
ln accordance with a plan drawn up
by an Imperial council specially convened for the purpose, and submitted
to the dlfforent Legislatures for ratification." He believes, however, that
euoh a soheme ls too vast to be gut
under way ln any reasonable time, and
bo desires to have, say, 2,000 children
of "tho orphan and deserted class"
emigrated as an experiment. If this
proved successful, then the major Idea
Of exporting tens of thousands of children a year might be put Into operation.
What Canada Should Do.
Under this arrangement each Colonial Government would provide ono or
mors agricultural homea or farms
where the children would be educated,
brought up and trained under direct
Government supervision for work ln
tho Colony. It would also undertake
to place the children ln suitable situations. An adequate system of Inspection of the children until each reached
ths age of eighteen Is another charge
tho Colonial Government would bo expected to assume. Each local Board
of Guardians desiring to establish a
child ln a Colonial home would be
obliged to hand over the ohlld at the
ago of ten, lf possible, and also to allow each Colonial Government to select the children and to pay for their
maintenance as follows:—A sum of
money annually or otherwise equal to
tho sum paid for bringing up tho children ln England, the amount not to exceed ln any caso tho expenditure for
four years; also an agreed sum to cover tho cost of Inspecting the child until It reached the ago of'eighteen.
"Ono of the chief drawbacks to the
present system of emigrating Poor
Law children to Canada," says Mr.
Cooko, "ls that tlfey got no special
training for tho work they will bo
called on to do almost on their arrival
ln tho Colony. So far child emigration has only been carried on with
Canada, and all that tho Dominion
Government Insists upon ls that prior
to emigration to Canada the Poor
Law child shall havo received Instruction for at least six months under the
Board of Guardians, or ln a Public
elementary school; and all that Dr.
Barnardo Insists upon Is that Poor
Law children passing through his
agency shall reside for a period varying from throe to six months ln ono of
his English home prior to emigration. Ho gives three reason for this
dotention—for which, of course, he receives the usual payment from the
guardians—but no one of them has any
reference to tho question of training.
Again, as nearly all the orphan and
deserted ohlldren aro boarded out by
tho Government, lt ls clear that no
attempt on their part ls mado to specially tram the children for Ufa ln
A  Subject  For ths Government.
It Is not necessary to prove that a
child trained to live under conditions
which exist In Canada will have a far
better chance of success ln life and be
of much moro value to ..this country
than ths child who has boen untrained. Mr. Cooke notes this, and also
seems to guarantee success for his
scheme by stating that from Canada
last year there were no fewer than
16,673 applications for children of this
sort. Moreover, Sir Wilfrid Laurier
has said that the Dominion Government would not object to the establishment of training farms in Canada,
and this has encouraged Mr. Cooke.
He has also Interviewed soveral representative guardians, and has not met
with any serious discouragements, although, at the outset, somo guardians
protested against their best boys being
drafted out of the country. It might
be well for some niember of Parliament to draw the attention of the Government to Mr. Cooke's scheme, and
have It discussed ln the House,
His Policy Has Already Wrought Extraordinary Changes In the Vatican's Foreign Relations.
Plus X. has brought about such extraordinary and radical changes ln the
domestic and foreign policy of the
Vatican since his accession to the papal throne that thero Ib plenty of good
ground for attaching Importance to
tho report now current, both at Rome
and at Vienna, to the effect that the
Pontiff has Intimated to Emperor
Francis Joseph and to other Catholic
sovereigns that they may come to
Rome and visit th. oulrlual   without
any onngor oi nnoing tno gates oi th*
Vatican closed ln their faces, writes
Marquise de Fontenoy. Plus IX., after
the loss of his temporal power, and
Leo XIII. throughout his entire reign
declared that while they.were quite
ready to receive the visits of any non-
Catholic sovereigns or royal personages they would, not countenance any
Catholic monarchs or princes or princesses of the blood holding communication with the royal family of Italy
at Rome, that these illustrious personages must choose between the head of
the church and the King of Italy, and
that lf they crossed the threshold of
the qulrinal during-their stay in the
Eternal city not only would the doors
of the Vatican be closed ln their faces
but papal nuncios would be withdrawn
from their courts.
It Is for this reason that Emperor
Francis Joseph has until now been
prevented from returning at Rome to
the King and Queen of Italy the visit
paid to tho court of Vienna in 1873 by
tho iato Victor Emmanuel I., and nlno
years later by King Humbert and
Queen Marghcrita, a delay which has
frofoundly affronted the Italian people
and the Italian Govornmcnt. It was for
this reason, too, that the King of Portugal, devoted as he was to his uncle,
King Humbert, was debarred from attending either his silver woddlng or
his funeral, and why tho Italian court,
In one word, Has boon boycotted by

to realize that this policy was not only
useless but also that lt served to lrrl-

ls no doubt that the papacy will derive
Increased prestige, Influence, and
popularity by throwing open tho doors
of the Vatican to foreign Catholic,
rulers, and by encouraging them to
visit Rome Irrespective of thoir relations with tho qulrinal.
Only a few years beforo the death
of Loo XIII. the papacy demanded of
Austria tho recall of Its ambassador to
the Vatican for no other offense than
that he had Invited to either a dinner
or to a reception at his palace a numbor of the diplomats accredited to the
qulrinal, and a noble guard who had
been Indiscreet enough to allow some
of his relatives belonging to the court
of tho<»fulrinal to call upon him at the
Vatican and subjected to all sorts of
disciplinary measures.
Now, however, the most friendly relations aro tolerated between the members of the two courts, and at a charitable amateur entertainment the other
day at the Argentina theatre, at which
Queen Helena waB present, tho adjoining boxes being occupied by great
dignitaries of the Vatican, one of the
chamberlains of the King came before
the footlights, with ono of tho noble
guards of tho Popo, to sing a duo,
which was one of tho features of the
evening. There aro few of the gentlemen and ladies in'waiting of the King
and of tho two Queens who have not
been within the last few months to the
Vatican to pay their reBpects to the
Popo and to receive his blessing, and
tho utmost cordiality prevails between
the dignitaries of the two courtB, the
Government and Its officials lavishing
demonstrations of respect and regard
upon the princes of the church.
Moreover, Pius X. ls acquiring a
popularity among tho people at Rome
which Leo XIII. certainly never enjoyed. The Iato Pope touched no responsive chord of sympathy ln the heart of
the Roman and Italian masses. Most
of them lived and diod without setting
oyos upon him, while all that others
ever saw of him was when he was
borne past them, shoulder high, on
tho portable throne through avenues
of guards in St. Peter's. Pius X., however, preaches to thousands of them
in the open air lu one of the huge
courtyards of the Vatican every Sunday. He receives not only tho great
but also tho humble people. HIb doors
may bo said to bo open to every one.
Sometlmos hugo cohorts of people are
permitted to wander through the gardens, where tho Pope will happen
among them, talking to them kindly,
and he has managed to get into such
close touch with tho masses that wero
ho to make his appearance ln tho
streets of Rome ho would be balled
ny tho puulie with tho most enthusiastic tokens of affection and devotion,
whereas there was always an apprehension during tho reign of Leo XIII.
that lf he had ventured forth out of
the Vatican ho might have been subjected to tho outrageous indignities
that were offered by the populace to
the remains of good old Pius IX. when

There nre advantages accruing even
from bald heads. It Is pointed out hy
a writer In a medical journal tlmt bald
headed men nevor suffer from consumption, and that a tendency to baldness Is an assurance that the drcadod
scourgo will pass over him whoso
thatch grows thin.
At flrst glance lt would soom absurd
to argue that a man's hair ls Indicative
of his Immunity from disoaso, but tho
writer who advances this novel theory
declares that In tlio five years during
which ho seriously added a record of
hia patients' hair or lack of It his caso
cards have failed to show a single In-
stanco of "bald" being entered upon
tho card of a consumptive.
He had undor treatment moro than
seven hundred cases, and ho makes
tho further statement that In a census
of more than flvo thousand tuberculosis cases lie fallod to discover a single
sufferer who was bald.
Ho makes no effort to explain his
theory upon medical grounds, but
Blmply offers the results of his observation for tho bcnollt of the profession, and has Invited his brother
physicians to wrilo him of any case

Editor and Manager of the Albertan,
The i newspaper man working
on a daily la at all times
up against the time limit. His
are dally anxious hours, and a steady
strenuosity. In a weekly ofiice, there
is hustle on press day, but In a dally
the motto Is "hustle" every minute of
every day. The leisurely progress towards the weekly climax is iu striking contrast with the orderly confusion at all times reigning ln a daily office, and men who are getting out
fifty-two isBiiea a year, and doing their
woyk well, would be utterly lost if
they had put out three hundred. The
latter demands a thorough knowledge
tf all departments of a newspaper production, talents of quick organization,
and a wide knowledge of men and
things, as well as a mechanical equipment much superior. Many a man
who has made a successful editor of
a country weekly has failed lamentably when the conditions of growth
warranted tho change to a dally.
Speaking in tho large, the editors
of dally papers ln Western Canada
have peculiar qualifications for their
work. The high telegraph tolls and
the sparse population combine to make
news expensive and the circulations
small, but, when these conditions are
considered, and the consequent small
revenue at the disposal of the newspapers taken Into account, the quality of the Western Canadian daily
press la a never ceaBlng marvel to
those who know lt. . In the ranks of
the men producing It afe Included
some of the brightest journalists in
the Dominion, men qualified by training and ability to hold any position
on  any  metropolitan  paper.
Among this clasB Mr. William McCartney Davidson, the editor and
manager of tho Calgary Albortan, undoubtedly finds a place. He is a trained newspaper man in every sense of
tho word. There is no department
of journalism through which he has
not graduated, and "made good." He
has been police court reporter, street
reporter, interviewer, sporting editor,
dramatic and art critic, commercial
editor, political correspondent, editorial writer and editor-in-chief, and has
even gone to the limit of short story
wrtter and poet.
Mr. Davidson's professional equipment was built upon tho solid foundation of a good university training. He
graduated from Toronto University
In 1893 after a vory commendable
course, taking high honors ln political
science and history, the two subjects
having most Intimate connection with
his chosen career.
The oditor of the Albertan la an Ontario boy, having been born In Prince
Edward County ln 1872. Ho ls of tlie
U. E. Loyalist descent, his four grandparents all having been born In Canada. He was' educated In tho public
schools at Prince Edward County, at
Plcton High School and St. Catherines
Collegiate Institute beforo going to
After graduating, Mr. Davidson at
once got Into newspaper work. He
began his journalistic career on the
Toronto World—September, 1893. In
tho following year he Joined tho Star
staff, and for some years he waa leading political reporter on that paper,
being later mado assistant city editor. In 1900 he left tho Star, going to
the Toronto News, ln which ho was
for a few months city editor. In 1901
he left the News, to becomo editor
of tho London News. In the following
year ho bought the Albertan and
came  west.
At that time the Albertan was a
semi-weekly publication, with a "patent inside." Today It Is a morning

An Instance of the application ot a
precocious knowledge of the law by a
child occurred in a Parisian school.
In France education ls obligatory, but
the law cannot compel children to remain at school after the age of thirteen. This law, needless to remark,
Is usually a dead letter, but on the occasion ln question a pupil suddenly
got up In the middle of a lesson, gathered up his books, placed them neatly
In his desk, took up his hat and moved
toward the door. "Where are you going?" asked the teacher with a certain amount of acerbity. "Sir," replied the boy, with Irritating nonchalance. "I was thirteen years of age
four, minutes ago, and you have no
longe* any right to keep me at school."

of three machines to set Its news
matter, and Its mechanical equipment
has periodically to bo enlarged to
cope with Its increasng popularity.
Mr. Davidson was married in 1899
to a daughter of the lat© Rov. Dr.
Robertson, superintendent of missions
in tho Presbyterian church. Mrs. Davidson waa a writer of rare ability, and
would have made a mark in Canadian
literature but. for her untimely death
in 1904. Sho left on record some very
clever short atories and charming
In addition to hia onerous editorial
work, Mr. Davidson has many othor
activitlea. He is a member of the
board of management of Western Canada Collego, secretary of the board
of managers of Knox Presbyterian
church, director of tho Inter-Western
Exhibition Company, member of the
council of the Calgary board of trade,
member of tho executive committee of
the Calgary Liberal Association, and
vice-president of the Calgary base-
hall league.
ln His newspaper work, Mr. Davidson's personal inclination is toward
the editorial end. In thiB department
he is at his best, excelling ln tbe semi-
humorous, sarcaatlc or Ironical. In descriptive and lmpresslonlat writing he
la porhapa without a rival in the West,
and hia half column sketching characterizations of men and things are
read and looked for by other newspapermen whenever thoy—as they too
seldom do—appear. In politics, as
may be judged from the editoriala of
the Albertan, he is a Liberal of the
more advanced kind, belonging to
what is becoming known as tbe Canadian radical school.

Wo feel ourselves born without choico
of our own into a universe which we do
not understand, aud which corresponds,
as it seems, only in the most imperfeot
and fragmentary way with thoso of our
desirps and aspirations which wo
inoreasingly boliuvo to be legitimate and
good. From this universe we ure re
moved, as we euter*'it, without notice
or warning, and without any willing,
ness or nnwilliugncsH to depart. Before
deporting, we have commonly and
without much reflection, produced
others to undorgo in their turu the sumo
enigmatic destiny. And so from generation to generation tlie race is continued,
achieving much, yet accomplishing
nothing; lenruiug much, yet remaining
ignorant of everything; . acting, thiuk
ing, feeling, yet haunted by tho doubt
whether it is not all a dream; pursuing
Good and contending with Evil iu a
scheme of things which never appears
itself to tako sides; developing the means
to happiness,yet uever becoming happier;
pressing evor onward to goals thut are
uever reached; and retiring, section
after section, baffled but never ackuow
lodging defeat, to mako room for new
combatants iu the contest that is
always old.—Dickinson.

is first to draw attention and to leave a favorable
and as far as possible a lasting impression.
The first aud principnl object of a very great deal of advertising
is not directly that of soiling goods, but of establishing a worthy
fame—0 recognized reputation—to make the goods and the honse
known. Customers must come with some idea of the goods thoy
seek, the more knowledge tho better. With confidence inspired
by effective advertising, it is then np to the salesmou to do tbe
rest—to uuike good by courtesy mid u skillful presentation of the
wares which should io up to all that bus beeu advertised.
