The "News* Advert.Fer-1' seems lo be interested in what it calls our short and quaini
editorinl of October  I2lh.
In the editori.il referred to we sought .0
correct a wrong conclusion arrived pt \>y
some who rend what we wrote on the subject of "Party Lines'' We objected to the
contention that in the article on "Party
Lines" we hnd i*jone out of our wny to strike
al the Dunsmuir Government and we .howec!
that an article on the general subject of pail)'
lines could not he taken ns an article direc'-
ed solely agfiipst the present, government,
it not being the firM non-party govern
incut in power. The present and previous
B. C. governments have not been made superior to other provincial government's by
the adoption of the non-partY system. In
fact the non-party government of British
Columbia has often been below par.
Now because we re-stated our opinion and
showed that certain conclusions arrived at
after reading the article on "Party Lines'',
were unreasonable] ihe "News-Advertise! '
says thnt "The Prospector" now that it knows
how Mr. Smith the local member, stands,
is anxious to keep on gu_d terms with the
Provincial govern ment.
Tiie "News-Advertiser" bus long posed
as a thought reader, but evidently after all
its practice in this direction it hns failed to
comprehend some of the fundamental laws
thai govern thought, or what is equally necessary, to draw natural conclusions from
plain expressions of thought. That our
"short and quaint" explanation of Oct. 12th
Was not ambiguous is evident from the lac.
that the rest of our exchanges aiul readers
who commented on it took the intended
meaning from our words. Hence we contend that the "News•Advertiser" is cursed
with dim mental vision and sees men as trees
walking. And our opinion is that this detect
in mental vision has been caused by continuous straining to perceive far distant objects.
We would prescribe a change and rest by
looking at tilings nearer home. In other
words a knowledge of self is necessary. It
will be a pity if the "News-Advertiser" by
spending lime on things beyond its reach neglects ordinary reflection and observation.
Neglect is already noticeable. Casual observation and ordinary reflection wou'd have
saved the above paper from making the statement that we are anxious to "keep" on good
terms with lhe present goverr.n ent.. The
absence from our paper of even the ordinary
Government advertisements of West Lillooet
District, shows to a man with half an eye,
that if we have no active opponents at Victoria wc certainly have 110 one to guard or
support our legitimate intere>ts. Seeingth.it
we have not received u single ail. from Victoria it is nonsense to say that we are anximis
to "keep" on good terms with llie present
government. We want no favors. We cau
live without them. We want liberty of speech
and action without beinc placed under the
ban. This position is lawful and reasonable.
When the "News-Adveitiser" hai trained
itself to notice surface truths, ami gives time
from its multitudinous, airy nothings, to lhe
fuller training of the reasoning and reflective
powers, then :it may take up the occult
sciences as a diversion from earnest, practical

Isaiah xxi, 11, "Watchman, what of
the night?"
When night came duwn on Babylon,
Ninevah und Jerusalem, they needed
careful watching, otherwise the Incendiary's torch might have been thrust
into the very heart of the metropolitan splendor, or enemies, marching
from the bills, might have forced
tbe gates. All night long, on top of
tbe wall and in front of tbe gates,
might be beard the measured step of
the watchman on bis solitary beat;
silence hung in air, save life some
passerby raised the Question,
"Watchman,  what of the  night?"
It is to me n deeply suggestive and
solemn thing to see a man standing
guard by night. It thrilled through
mo as at the gate of an arsenal in
Charleston the question onco smote
me, "Who comes there?" followed by
tbe sharp command, "'Advance and
give the countersign." Every moral
teacher stands on picket or patrols
tbe wall as watchman. His work is
to sound tbe alarm, and whether it
be in the first watch, in the second
watch, in the third watch or in the
fourth watch to be vigilant until
the daybreak llings its "morning
glories" of blooming cloud across
the trellis of the sky.
The ancients divided their night
into four parts—the first watch from
0 to 9, the second from 9' to 12, the
third from 12 to 3 and tbe fourth
from 3 to G. I speak now of tbe city
in the third watch, or from 12 to 8
I never weary of looking upon the
life of the city in tho lirst watch.
That is the hour when the stores are
closing. The laboring men, having
quitted the scaffolding and the shop.
are on their way home. It rejoices
me to give them my seat in the city
car. They bave stood and hammered
away all day. Their feet are weary.
They aro exhausted with the tug of
work. They are mostly cheerful. With
appetites sharpened on the swift
turner's wheel and thc carpe iter's
whetstone' they seek the evening
meal. The clerks, too, have broken
away from tbo counter and with
brain weary of the long lino of figures and Uie whims of those wdio go
a-shopping seek the face of mother
or wife and child. The streets are
thronged with young men setting out
from the great centres of bargain
making. Let idlers clear the street
and give right of way to the be-
sweated artisans and merchants!
They have earned their bread and are
now on tbeir way home to get it.
The lights in full jot bang over 10,-
000 evening repasts — the parents
at either end of the table, the children between. Thank Ood, "who sct-
teth the solitary in families!"
A few hours later and all the
places of amusement, good and bad,
are in full tide. Lovers of nrt, catalogue in hand, stroll through the galleries and discuss tho pictures. The
ballroom is resplendent with the rich
apparel of those who on either side
of the white, glistening boards await
the signal from the orchestra. Concert halls are lifted into enchantment
with tlie warble of one songstress or
swept out on a sea of tumultuous
feeling by tbe blast of brazen instruments. A beautiful and overwhelming
thing is tbe city in the first and second watches of the night.
But tlie clock strikes 12, nnd the
third watch bas begun. Tbe thunder
of the city has rolled out of tbe air,
The slighest sound cuts the night
with such distinctness as to attract
your attention. The tinkling of the
bell of the street car in thc distance
and    the buying of the dog. The
stamp of a horse in the next street.
The slamming of a saloon door. The
hiccough of the drunkard. Tho shrieks
of the steam whistle five miles away.
Oh. how suggestive, my friends, the
third watch of tho night!
There are honest men passing up
and down the street. Here is a city
missionary, who has been currying tt
scuttle of coal to that poor family
in that dark place. Hero is an undertaker going up the steps of tt
building from which there comes a
bitter cry, which indicates that tbe
destroying angel bas smitten tlie
firstborn. Here is a minister of religion who lias been giving the sacrament to a dying Christian. Here
is a physician, passing along in great
baste. Nearly all the lights have
gone out in thc dwellings, for it is
the third watch of tbe night. That
light in the window is the light of
the watcher, for the medicines must
be administered, nnd the fever must
be watched, and the restless tossing
off of the coverlid must be resisted,
and the ice must be kept on tlio hot
temples, and the perpetual prayer
must go up from hearts soon to be
Oh, the third watch of tho night!
Whnt a stupendous thought — n
whole city at rest! Weary arm ire-
paring for to-morrow's toil. Hot
brain being cooled off. 'tigid
musclos relaxed Excited nerves
soothed. The white hair of
tho octogenarian in thin drifts
across the pillow, fresh fall of
flakes on snow already fallen. Childhood, with its dimpled hands
thrown out on the pillow und with
every breath taking in a new store
of fun and frolic. Third watch of
tho night! God's slumberless eye
will  Ionic.    Let one great  wave    Ol
refreshing slumber roll over the
heart of the great town, Submerging
care and anxiety and worriment r.nd
pain.     Let the city sleep.
But, my friends, be not deceived.
There will be to-night thousands
who will not sleep at all. Uo up
that dark alley, and be cautious
where you tread lest you fall over
the prostrate form of a drunkard lying on his own doorstep. Look
about you, lest you feel the garrot-
er's hug. Look through the broken
window pain- and see what you can
see. You say, "Nothing." Then
listen. What" is it? "God help
us?" No footlights, but tragedy
ghastlier and mightier than Histoid
or Edwin Booth ever enacted. No
light, no lire, no bread, no hope.
Shivering in tbe cold, tbey have had
no food for twenty-four hours. Ynu
say, "Why don't they beg?" They
do, but they get nothing. You say,
"Why don't tbey deliver themselves
over to the almshouse?" Ah, you
would not ask that if you ever heard
the bitter cry of a man or a child
when told he must go to Iho almshouse. "Oil," you say, "they nre
vicious jioor, and therefore they do
not deserve our sympathy!" Are
they vicious? So much more need
they your pity. The Christian
poor,  God helps  them.
I'ass on through the alley. Open
the door. ''Oh." you say. "it is
lucked!" No, it is not locked. It
has never been locked. No burglar
would be tempted to go in there to
steal anything. Ouly a broken chair
stands against tbe door. Shove it
back. Go in. Strike a match. Now,
look. Beastliness and rags. See
those glaring eyeballs. Be careful
now what you say. Do not utter
any insult, do not utter any suspicion, if you value your life. What is
that red mark on the wall? It is
the mark of a murderer's hand!
Look at those two eyes rising up
out of the darkness and out from
the straw in the corner, coming toward you, ami ns they come near
you your light goes out. Strike another match. Ah, this is a babe,
not like those beautiful children presented in baptism. This little one
never smiled. It never will smile.
A flower flung on an awfully barren
beach. O Heavenly Shepherd, fold
that little one in thy arms! Wrap
around you your shawl cr your
coat tighter, for the cold wind
sweeps through.
Strike another match. Ah. it is
possible that tbe scarred and bruised face of that young woman ever
was looked into by maternal tenderness? titter no scorn. Utter no
harsh word. No ray of hope has
dawned on that brow for many a
year. No ray of hope ever will
dawn on that brow. But the light
lias gone out. Ho not strike another light. It would be a mockery to
kindle another-light in such a place
as that. I'ass out and pass down
the street. Our cities are full of
such homes antl tho worst timo tlie
third watch of the night.
In the third watch of the night
gambling does its worst work. What
though tlie hours be slipping away
and though the wife be waiting in
the cheerless home? Stir up the
fire; bring on more drinks; put up
more      stakes! That    commercial
house that only a little while ago
put on a sign of co-partnership will
this winter be wrecked on a gambler's table. There will be many a
money till that will spring a leak.
In the third watcli of the night pass
down the streets oi these cities, and
you hear the click of the dice and
the sharp; keen stroke of the balls
on tho billiard table. At these
places merchant princes dismount,
and legislators, tired of making
laws, take a respite in breaking
them. All classes of people tire robbed by this crime — tho importer of
foreign silks and tbe dealer in Chatham street pocket Handkerchiefs, The
clerks of the store take a hand after the shutters are put up, uud the
ollicers of tho court while away tlieir
time while the jury is out.
In Baden-Baden, when that city
was the greatest of all gambling
places on earth, it was no unusual
thing the next morning, In the woods
around about the city, to lind the
suspended hollies of suicides. Whatever be the splendor of surroundings, there is no excuse for this
crime. The thunders of eternal destruction roll in the deep rumble of
that gambling tenpin alley, and as
men come out to join tlie long procession of sin all the drums of death
beat tho dead march of a thousand
In tho third watch of the night
also drunkenness does its worst. The
drinking will be respectable at 8
o'clock in the evening, a little flushed at 9, talkative ami garrulous ut
10, at, 11 blasphemous, at 12 the
hat falls off, nt 1 the man falls to

Strewn through the drinking saloons
of the city, fathers, husbands, sons.
as good as you are by nature, perhaps belter. In the high circles of
society it is hushed up. A merchant prince, if he gets noisy nnd
uncontrollable, is taken by his fellow revelers, who try to get him to
bed or take him home, where lie falls
flat in the entry. Do not wake up
tho children. They have had disgrace enough. Do not let them
know it. Hush it up. But sonic-
times it cannot be hushed up when
the rum touches tho brain and the
man" becomes thoroughly frenzied.
Such n ono came home, having been
absent for some time, and tin ring
his absence his wife died, and she
Iny in tlie next room, prepared for
the obsequies, nnd he went in and
dragged her by the locks and shook
her out of her shroud and pitched
her out of the window. Oh, when
rum touches the brain you cannot
bush it up!
Aly friends, you see all around
about you the neod that something
radical be done. You do not sec the
worst.- In the midnight meetings in
London a great multitude have been
saved. We want a few hundred
Christian men nntl women to come
down from thc highest circles of society to toil amid these wandering
antl destitute ones anil kindle up a
light in the dark alley, even the
gladnoss of heaven. Bo not go
wrapped  in your fine furs and from
your well filled tables with the idea
that pious talk is going to slop the
gnawing of an empty stomach or to
warm stockingless feet. Tuke bread,
take raiment, take medicine, as well
;is take prayer. There is a great
tleal of common sense in what the
poor woman said to the city missionary when he was telling her how
she ought to love God and serve
him. "Oh," she said, "if vou were
as poor and cold as I am and as
hungry you could think of nothing
it great deal of what is called
Christian work goes for nothing, for
the simple reason it is not practical. As afler the battle of Antics
tain a man got out of au ambulance
with a bag of tracts, and he went
distributing the tracts, and George
Stuart, one of the best Christian
men in this country, suid to him:
"What are you distributing tracts
for now? There are 3,000 men
bleeding to death, Hind up their
wounds, and then distribute the
tracts." We want more common
sense in Christian work, taking tlio
bread of this life in one hand and
the bread of tbo next life in the other hand. No such inapt work as
that done by the Christian man
who, during tho civil war, went into
a hospital with tracts, and, coming
to t'.e bed of a man whose legs had
bee.i amputated, gave him a tract
on the sin of dancing!
I could give you tho history in a
minute of one of the best friends 1
ever had. Outside of my own family
1 never had a better friend, lie welcomed mc to my home at tho west.
He was of splendid personal appearance, but" he had an ardor of soul
and a warmth of affection that made
mc love him like a brother. 1 saw
men coming out of the saloons and
gambling hells, and they surrounded
my friend, and tbey took him at the
weak point — his social nature —
and I saw him going down, and I
had a fair talk with liim, I'or I never
yet saw a man you could not talk
with on the subject of his habits if
you talked with him in the i iglit
way. I said lo liim, "Why don't
you give up your bad habits antl
become a Christian?" 1 remember
now just how he looked, leaning
over his counter, as he replied: "I
wish I could. Oh, sir, I should like
to be a Christian, but I bave gone
so fur astray I can't get back!" So
tlie time went on. After awhile the
tiny of sickness came. I was summoned to his sick bed. I hastened.
It took me but a very few moments
to get there. I was surprised as I
went in. I saw him in liis ordinary
dress, fully dressed, lying on top of
tlie bed. I gave him my hand, and

and sisters weeping to have him go;
wagon rising over the bill; farewell
kiss flung back. King the bell and
let the curtain fall.
Act the second: The marriage altar; full organ, bright lights; long
white veil trailing through the
aisle; prayer ami congratulation and
exclnmation of, "How well she
Act the third: A woman waiting
for staggering steps; old ■■■urments
stuck into the broken window pane;
marks of hardship on the face; the
biting of the nails of bloodless fingers; neglect nntl cruelty and despair. King the bell and let tbe
curtain fall.
Act the fourth: Three graves in
a dark place — grave of the child
that died for lack of medicine, grave
of the wife that died of a broken
heart, grave of the man that died of
dissipation. Oh, what a blasted
heath with three graves! Plenty of
weeds but no flowers. King thc bell
and let tlie curtain drop.
Act the fifth: A destroyed soul's
eternity; no light, no music; blackness of darkness forever. But I cannot look nny longer. Woe! woe! I
close my eyes to this last aid of the
tragedy. Quick, tptick! King the
bell and let tbe curtain drop. "Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth,

In one respect at least harvest
time brings back very forcibly to
the minds of the elderly in agricultural districts the fact that since
their day rustic industries have undergone immense changes.
The local conditions of rural life
as regards the agricultural and cottage laborers have doubtless been
appreciably improved during the
last fifty years. Wages have increased, and much physical exertion has
been modified by the use of mechanical antl labor-saving contrivances.
it is the women, however, of the
cottage homes who are the greatest
gainers by the changes in rural conditions. Fifty years ago they took
their share of the field work with
the 'lien, and summer and winter
alike the wife or daughter was as
much a field hand as tlie husband or
Hut now it is only upon special
occasions that the cottage housewife
is to be met with working in the
fields, or on tlie land at all, unless
it is in her own cottage garden.
There is one characteristic of "Itus-
tic Industry" which hns been handed down from long antecedent times,
and which has always seemed to
hove been the woman's work, antl
yet, during tlie last few years it,
too, has ceased to find its wonted
votaries. Gleaning in the cornfields, as Huth gleaned after the
reapers in the fields of Boaz, has
vanished forever. Tlie reaper und
self-hinder leave littlo for the gleaner to pick up, and as the days of
high-priced bread seem also to have
passed, the laborers who lived largely upon thc brown bread ground
from the corn of their own gleaning now eat the white bread the
baker's cart leaves at tbeir door.
Thus there is no incentive to pursue this old world industry. It has
gone the way of silkworm culture —
a species of rural Industry whicli
James I. and succeeding monarchs
made strenuous efforts to encourage.
In connection wilh the silkworm,
mulberry trees wero planted in prodigious quantities sixty years or so
ago for silkraising purposes, but
now the tree has all but disappeared
from England, and women have lost
an occupation. Fruit gathering
still keeps its place as one of the village industries in which women excel.
Bilberries,     blackberries, mush
rooms, and nuts in the country generally are free to those wbo like to
gather them, and the bilberry harvest, as it is termed, is a really important one. The berries are bluish-
bluck in color, somewhat smaller
than black currants, antl are highly
appreciated by townsfolk for tarts,
puddings,  jams, etc.
Every berry is produced singly, so
tho trouble of picking is considerable, about half a dozen quarts of
them heing considered a good day's
work for a woman to gather. They
sell wholosale when taken to market nt Ct! to 8d per quart — mostly
the latter price. The wide stretch of
woods on the borders of Northwest
Staffordshire art! favorable to the
growth of bilberries, and they are
thrown open to the gatherers ns the
season commences in tlie first week
in July.
As a proof of the importance of
this apparently trivial Industry it is
worth mentioning that the agent to
the owners of some of these woods
determined this year as a check upon the gatherers to allow none to
enter but those wdio bad taken a
ticket at a cost of Id. per day for
each gatherer.
The first day these woods were
open was wet. but by tlie second dav
the whole of the 1,000 tickets which
had been provided had been sold,
and a further relay hat! to be ordered in hot haste. About „,000 in all
were disposed of. though hundreds of
acres of other bilberry woods were
close hy.
The money value of nature's bounty in this one wild fruit alone must,
have approached 1:700, ami ihis was
but a portion of what she had furnished in the one locality, the gathering being almost entirely done by
women—London  Mail,

Typewriting lu Arabic.
Selim S. Hatltlad has invented a
typewriter that seems to have overcome most, if not all, the difficulties
of printing Arabic characters. In tie-
vising the machine he hnd to consider tlie enormous number of characters, the spacing of the letters, the
necessity for printing when required
above, on or below the line, and finally tlie junction of the letters, for,
there is no uniform principle, every
character having its own joining peculiarities, lie reduced the number
of signs from 688 to 53 without sacrificing the essentials of modern
writing. Ho met the difficulty of the
varying breadth of letters by splitting some into two separate units.
Out of four years tlevoted to the
work he spent eighteen months in
the United States, and Ids invention
cost him £1,000. A thorough trial
of the machine has been ordered by
the Sirdar, ant! if the test proves
successful, tlie typewriter is likely to
be adopted in the Soudan Administration offices, and by the business

In the village of Dersinghnm
(writes a Sandringham visitor in M.
A. T.) there is an old, old lady, living in the cottage at the corner, who
is very proud of many things in her
litlle home. They were given her
from time to time by Queen Alexandra. On sunny mornings "Granny"
comes out in her white sunhoniict
and potters about among her flowers. Then is the best time to talk
to   her.
"The Queen?" she says, with a puzzled look. "I don't know who you
mean, sir." Suddenly she remembers,
and a smile lights up the old eyes
and plays with tho wrinkled features.
"Is it the Princess you mean?" she
You tell her yes, nnd she says suddenly: "Ah, my dear, you don't know
the Princess, do you?" nnd then,
speaking softly mill smiling to herself, she tells you the following chnr-
atteristic tale.
"One morning, two winters ngo—

I was doin' my bit of iroiiin -
came a knock tit the door. I didn't
take notice. I thought it were Jim,
my son-in-law, and he just knocks
nnd Walks in. So I went, on wilh my
ironiu'. Presently there enmo another
knock. So I calls 'Walk in!' but, bo-
cnuse tbo iron was nice antl hot, 1
didn't stop. And there, my dear, it
was the Princess antl her daughter,
ant! 1't! kept them outside knocking,
antl it wns a bitter morning. I was
so flurried that I didn't know what
to do. I stood with the heater in my
hunt!, ami all I could do was to
make my curtsy. But Her Highness
didn't    seem  to  mint!  a bit. She
says, 'Good mornlll', Granny. We
just walked in to see how you were
this cold mornin'. I got over my
flurry by this time nnd dusted two
chairs for them to sit on, nnd put
my iron on the fire. Dut tlie Princess
wouldn't have nie stir. She turned to
her daughter uml saitl, 'You take
Granny's iron while she sils tlown
und talks to me.' So tlie young
Princess took the Iron nntl ironed,
while I sal down nntl talked with
her mother."
Granny rose and went to a drawer. She took out a handkerchief witli
a gny colored border, antl brought It
across. "She ironed (hat, my dear,
just ns you see it. I put it away,
nntl never used it since. Well, the
Princess, her mother, nntl me talked.
She told me as how she liked the
Country heller than London, where
she couldn't walk about or go out
very much. Then she asked me about
Jim, nnd Sarah, and the baby. 1
told her the child was troubled with
her teeth, ant! she saitl she remembered quite well when her own babies
were bad with their teeth, and the
trouble she  had  with  them, She
stayed ami talked for nearly an
hour. I was afraid to ask her to have
anything, but she remembered my
ginger wine, ami asked if she and her
daughter might liave it glass because
it wus Warming iu  winter time."

make occasional picture visits to Boston, Chicago or New York. Do not
make the mistake of slaying too long
In a gallery. You only tire yourself.
Half an hour Is quite long enough. But
do not endeavor to look nt every picture In the gallery In that time. Look
long at a few gootl ones nml let those
you look at bo those you like or at least
those whicli you prefer above the others. Also nsk yourself why you prefer

Why Beauty Fades
and Sufferings Come.
Real beauty is rare. It belongs to perfect health. Just
as soon as thc blood gets thin and watery and the nerves become exhausted beauty fades, wrinkles show themselves, the
beautiful curves give way to lameness and angles. Nervousness quickly destroys beauty of face and form. The female
organism becomes deranged and there are sufferings almost
unbearable at the monthly periods. Too often women come
to believe these mysterious pains and aches a part of their ex-
istense. They fail to realize that by keeping the blood and
nerves in perfect health they can preserve youth and beauty
and avoid an endless amount of suffering.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, tlie great blood builder and
nerve restorative, is woman's greatest blessing from youth to
old age. It helps her over the trying periods of her life and
prepares the system in every way to perform naturally the duties of womanhood. It enriches the blood supply, keeps the
nerves calm and steady and assists in the development of glowing, healthful beauty. A few weekr,' treatment with this great
Food cure will do wonders for every woman who is pale, thin,
weak and nervous.

that aillict humanity there are lew
that cause more acute misery than

variously culled, llolh young' and old
are susceptible to ils attacks, and
its victims throughout the country

Among the disagreeable symptoms
which accompany dyspepsia aud make
it easily recognizable, are weight,
uneasiness and a heavy feeling in the'
Hloiuuch after eating, a ft cling of

ness, pains in the stomach, offensive

medicines will not cure dyspepsia.
They may; relieve its symptoms temporarily, but the trouble always ro-
turns uii'd each Lime in an iuLeusilicd
form. Ur. Williams' 1'ink Pills is the
only medicine, that will thoroughly
und effectively cure dyspepsia. These

Mrs. Alp. Lussier, a lady well

and in the hope Lhat her experience
will be of benefit to some other sui-
ferer she gives the following tlbry
for publication : "Por over two
years I was a sufferer from dyspepsia or bad digestion. Tho disease
became chronic and I was au almost
continual sufferer Irom headaches,
heartburn and heart palpitation. All
sense of taste left me and at times
my stomach was so weak that I was
unable to keep any food on it, and
this caused me more distress than
one could imagine. Although I tried
several remedies none of them gave
mo any relief, aad 1. began to regard
my life as a burden, rather than a
joy as it should bo. One day while

all symptoms ef the trouble had disappeared and I was able to enjoy
life as 1 did before being seized witli

First -liver Wedding.
According to a historian, this is the
way the first silver wedding came
about. It was in the time of Ungues
Caput. Two of his most faithful servants, a mnn ami a woman; had grown
gray Iu his employ. How could lie reward them?
(lulling the woman, he said: "Your
service Is great, gr-ater thnn the man's,
whose service Is great enough, for the
woman always Duds work harder than
a man. and therefore I will give you a
reward. At your nge 1 know of none
better than a dowry and a husband.
The dowry Is lien*. Tills farm from
tills time forth belongs to you. If tbis
man who has worked wilh you for live
nnd twenty years is willing to marry
you, then the husband Is ready."
"Your majesty," said the old peasant,
"how Is it possible Mint we should marry, having already silver hairs?"
"Then il shall be n silver wedding."
Ami lhe king gave lhe couple silver
enough lo keep lliem III plenty.
Such was Ihe origin of Ihe silver
wedding, n custom which, spreading all
through France, subsequently became
known io lhe world.

approval the young man at once becomes a lobster.
