"I have great news for yon, Mury

"Captain Conway 1 Veal And what
did be want, mother? What news did
he bring''"
Mary Hamilton took off ber Mack
straw liat as she spoke and pushed the
hair away from her forehead with a
weary gesture. Mrs. Hamilton busied
h, i m if with the simple tea table, assidm
onsly arranging plates, setting the teaspoons straight in the saucers, laying
the butter knife at an exact>'<aogle and
smoothing away an infinitesimal crease
in the while cloth. _.
"He—he—he made a suggestion to
me. Mary." she began nervously.
"A siii-r^i'stiini!'' Mary Hamilton sat
down and eyed her mother expectantly.
"Yon don't mean that he proposed to
yon. motherl" she exclaimed.
"Something very like it.' replied
Mrs. Hamilton, still keeping herself
very busy with tbe table.
For a moment there was silence between them. Mary Hamilton sat 1,inking with astonishment at her mother,
and at last she spoke.
"1 suppose it wouldn't be a had
thing in tlie mere way of money, mother, " she said slowly. "But—but—oh.
mother, dear, you could never bring
yourself to do it!"
For tbe first time Mrs. Hamilton
turned and looked straight at her
daughter     "My  dear  child,"  she ex-
"i'oti can't mean that youwoiil'l Ulic mt

claimed, "yon don't understand!
There is no question of my marrying
Captain Conway. It ie—at least he
never—besides, my devotion to yonr
poor father's memory should havo kept
yon from jumping to any such conclusion. Captain Conway is a good man.
and any woman might be honored in
marrying him. Cut my heart is in the
grave, nnd—and. besides, he did- not
propose—he does not propose that I
should consider tbe question of becoming his wife."
Mary Hamilton stared open eyed at
her mother "Dear mother." she said
gently, "I am tired tonight The children were very troublesome today, and
the rooms seemed more stuffy than
usual. I feel confused. Do tell me just
what Captain Conway did suggest to
Mrs. Hamilton began to pour out the
tea with a vehemence which showed
how perturbed in mind she was. "Your
poor father always said that I was injudicious in telling news," she cried
in honest self abasement. "I ought to
have seen that you were tired. Here is
your tea. darling. Drink it at once and
bave another cup to go on with. The
truth is. Mary. Captain Conway has
flurried me till 1 hardly know whether
1 am standing on my head or my heels,
and—and 1 never gave a thought to
your being tired out with that hateful
school. Oh. to think tbat my daughter
should ever had been a board school
mistress, not one remove from a national school, and your father a clergyman in holy ordersI'
"My dear mother, do explain yourself. " said Mary, a fearful sense of coming evil gradually overspreading ber.
"Oh. my darling." cried the older
■woman, "it's all over now—all the
drudgery, all the pinching and the nip-
pingl I've said little or nothing because
yon were slaving your youth away iu
that horrid, degrading school, but now
J may speak, now 1 may say how bitterly nnd cruelly I hnve felt it al). tbe
humiliations, tbe—the" —
"Dear, there cnn be no degradation
or humiliation in honest work." said
Mary patiently and yet with a dignity
which sat becomingly on her tired
young face "And what do you mean
by its being overt Not surely that Captain Conway wants to marry urn."
"Yes. you! And. oh. my darling, it
has made me so happy, ' Mrs. Hamilton cried, "almost delirious witli happiness!'
"My dear mother, " cried Mary, bolting a piece of bread nnd butter with
what was almost a convulsion, "you
can t mean that yon Would like nie to
marry Captain Conway!'
•'Why notr' asked the mother blankly
"1 cor.ldn t do iti" declared the girl
it!"    Mrs  Hamilton's
run scream   "Couldn't
.ng: it means nothing. I can't malts
you marry Captain Conway; indeed,
I've no wish to do so. I can't make you
see what is best for you, although you
might trust yonr own mother to give
you good advice on such a suhject. 1
can do nothing but bear my disappointment with resignation and fortitude.
After all, it is only one more bitter pill
to swallow, oue mure drop of bitterness
in my cup of humiliation and self sacrifice. I'll say nothing more, Mary, only
—only—don't prate to me about love
and devotion.   I've proved the value of
both today.  And, after irfl my struggles ! so bluff and burly and grizzled, sc, lo
friends are allowed to make themselves
useful to one,another in times of trouble all the world over. I'll take it all
on myself and will account-, to your
mother fur the liberty I'm taking when
she's well enough to, discuss such
things. So now I'll be cfe and will send
ui a suitable nurse at dibce. Goodby!
Guild bless you, my dear!"
He roughly pressed l,S"r tyind and was
gone in a moment, leaving her standing looking desolately after him. She
shuddered as she tl,ought of him as her
possible, nay probable, busband; he was

"He is exceedingly well off. He can

"I don't—couldn't—never could love
liim!" Mary burst out
"Perhaps DOti but yon can respect
liim.'" cried tho mother,
••I don't kimw that I should even do
that much," Mary returned. Then she
suddenly clasped her hnnds togethi r and
looked appealingly at tbe excited woman opposite to her. "Ob. motherl Hunt
you understand why I cannot do this
thing? Have yuu been su unhappy in
our little home that you want to sell
me to the lirst bidder'; I've been so
contented in working for you Has it

"Working for nm!" Mrs. Hamilton
exclaimed indignantly. "Working for

bits of clothes and never a place to
show them in in tbis desolate wilderness of bricks and mortar! No one to

your bounty, without pleasures, interests or change of any kind! And then
to have your work thrown in my teeth.

"Oh. mother!"
"It's all very well to say. 'Oh, mother!' But I'm speaking the truth. All
these years I have struggled and striven
for you. And now. when you have a
chance of letting me end my days in
peace, you turn up your nose at a man
whom any woman might be honored by
"You married for love yourself.'
snid Mary in a very low voice.
Mrs. Hamilton caught up the words
and echoed them in the high pitched,
querulous accents of a thoroughly selfish
and superficial person. "Married for
love," she echoed shrilly. "Yes. and
what did love ever do for me? 1 married for love, married on £'S0 a yea,-,
drudged on it, slaved, toiled, almost
starved on it. Don't talk to me about
marrying for love, Mary—love in a cottage is a will-o'-tke-wisp that leads

bluff sailor being regarded as a provision
sunt by tbo Lord to take ber from an
independent life of honest work to oue
of degrading idleness, she almost laughed aloud, but she resolutely choked
down tbe inclination and spoke quietly
and reasonably to the excited woman
on the other side of the table.
"Dear mother." she said gently,
"cannot you for my sake endure this
life a little longer? After midsummer
we shall Jbe better off. Even now we
can well afford to bave a woman in to
do the rougher work—it hns always
been for you to decide how the m..:iey
shall bo spent. For my sake, dear?" .
"And why not for mine?" asked tbe
mother fiercely. "Listen I He has laid
all bis plans before me. You will have
a charming bouse nnd garden, a couple
of good maidservants, a handsome
housekeeping purse, an ample allowance
for your dress aud pocket money. There
will always be room for me—I am to
live with you—to give the benefit of
my advice, my experience in housekeeping and all such things. You will
hr.ve as much society as you care to
take—there, will be no anxiety, no
thinking about the rent or bow to get
seven days' dinners out of a certain
sum.   You will have"—
"Oh, don't, mother; please don't I'
tbo girl cried. "I know all these things
are a temptation to you, poor dear It
must be to you just like opening a
prison door and seeing a lovely view
over which you may walk forever on
one condition. , But tbe condition, dear
motfier, tbe condition! Think! It is
tha-. of reaching the fair pathways over
your own child's body.- Oh. worse,
worse—over her very soul I It means
the sacrifice of-all that is best in your
child's life—the giving up of ber freedom, her honor, her ambition, of all her
better self. Don't ask me to do it, dear.
Pray, pray don't. I will work—oh, how
1 will work! How thankfully and gratefully 1 will bring yon every'farthing
that I make, so that you. may be more
content. less straitened. Mother, dear,
speak for me I For my father's sake, say
that you won't urge this upon me."
But the words of appeal, glowing,
passionate, heartfnl as they were,
failed to touch the shallow nature of
tbe woman wbo in her day bad married
fur love and had found the dinner of
herbs turn to dust and ashes between
her teeth. She rested ber head dejected
lv upon her hnnd and gave several Ion;
drawn sighs of misery, calculated to
move the heart of a stone.
"Dear motherl' murmured Mary
from the other side uf the table.
But Mrs Hamilton shook her head
resolutely "Ni Mary, it's tin use yum
saving 'Dear mother!    It's worth m,th
to givo you the best of education, it's
hard, it's heartbreaking."
A sudden thought Hashed across Mary
Hamilton's mind of certain clerical
charities which had from the time of
ber father's death provided her mother
with tho wherewithal of living, of the
great institution wherein she bad received her education free of cost to her
niuther and because of the position in
life which her father had occupied, but
she said nothing; she felt that it would
be useless.
"Su my dream ends." said Mrs
Hamilton bitterly. "It says somewhere
in the Bible, 'Herchildren shall rise up
and call ber blessed.' It's a fallacy,
nowadays at least; fur veneration for
parents hns gone out of fashion. "
Mary Hamilton sat back in her chair
wondering whether it would be best to
let   tho  storm   pass   in   silence or not
of voice, so red cf face,'so dominant.
He jarred upou every fibef of ber being.
But it was useless to fight-longer against
fate, even in the person 6f a man who
was utterly and entirely! distasteful to
her. She had struggled'-witb all htr
might against the sacrifice of her soul's
best instincts, but to no'purpose. The'
threads were drawing closer and closer
around her, and if ber mother recovered
and still demanded tho complete sacrifice of herself against which she had so
passionately fought she had given ber
word and mttst carry it through to the
very end.
Before a couple of hours had gone by
a white capped nurse in dainty uniform
bad arrived at the little house and had
installed herself in charge of the case,
and when Mary got home from her work
the following afternoon Mrs. Hamilton
had recovered ber senses again and was

ind went blindly toward  the  door.    1 |
say blindly because she went stumbling-
ly and groped  ber way like a  person j
whose eyes were  full  of  tears.    There
were, however,  no tears  in  her  eyes,
but a  strange sightlessness, as if she.
biid suddenly walked into a heavy sea
fog.  Then at tbe door she stumbled and
fell, not the sharp fall of a person tripping by accident, hut   the  huddled lip
dropping to the ground  of  one unable j
any longer to keep her feet.
Mary sprang from ber seat with a !
cry. "Mother—mother—ycu arc Ull' |
she burst out.
The answer came thick and indistinct. "Dying, dyingl You have—killed—me I"
Tbe girl tried to lift the prostrate
woman, but found herself powerless.
She sank upon ber knees in an agony
of apprehension.
"No—no—mother; don't say tbat!
Let me help you—only try to get up!
I'll do anything to please you—mother
Her lirst mumbled words wero as a
deathknell to Mary's heart. "You—
promised," she said thickly.
"Yes, yes; I have not forgotten,"
Mary said hurriedly. "Don't think ot
that, dear; only get well and I will do
anything yon like."
Tbo sick woman gave a murmur of
satisfaction and closed her eyes again.
Mary turned away and went to tlie
window, where she stood looking out
trying to keep herself under control
Her face was white and set, her hands
shaking and cold. So ber mother bad
not forgotten; tbe sacrifice would have
to be made and she must at no distant
time sell herself into a slavery which
would be a living horror. And this was
the end of all her toil, of all her ambitions, of all ber brilliant hopes and
vivid dreamings! SmitU wonder thnt
her heart seemed as if it had turned to
water within her; that her soul seemed
numb and dead, as if 6he bad lost herself
in a deep and treacherous morass from

tion. "It's a stroke," he said, "but it
might bave been much worse; for instance, if it had been on tho other side
it would probably bave proved fatal almost immediately. As it is, with care,
your mother will probably recover and
be quite or very nearly herself again."
With care!   Mary Hamilton's heart
went down to zero as she heard the two
little simple words which give hope to j
some anxious watchers of the sick, but I
which open out endless  possibilities of i
unattainable needs to those who are ,
poorly placed in the world.   In her case |
it meant hftVing an experienced person |
to tend  her mother by   day and night
alike, fof, be tbe circumstances cf life
vv.hat tbey would, her work must go on
just the same.  With the best intentions
in tho world  she could not be  in two
places at Once.   Yet, how was she to afford skilled attendance for her mother?
It was a terrible question to answer.
At this point the advantages of the
alliance which the sick woman ha«l been
pressing upon her daughter came prominently into view. During the course of
the evening Captain Conway arrived,
eager and anxious as to bis answer,
only to be met with tho mournful news
tbat Mrs. Hamilton had been seized
with a paralytic stroke and was still
unconscious. His first words were a
suggestion.   "Yon will want a nnrse.'
"I sliall want some one to look after

very large circumference.
Tho end came all too soon. He spoko
to her one evening, told her his hopes
and fears—a great many hopes it must
be owned nnd a very few fears it must
be confessed. And Mary told him honestly that she had never thought of him
before her mother's illness as a possible
husband, told him she had never thought
cf marrying him or any one else, thanked him. with tears in her gray eyes, for
his goodness to ber mother and promised that if he would uot expect too much
of ber she would do her best to bo a
good and faithful wife to him.
Captain Conway's answer was characteristic of the man. He told her with
all the assurance and confidence of an
Adonis ib years his junior that he
was perfectly satisfied with her promises; that be would teach her to love
him when once she was really his own.
Mary shuddered, but allowed the remark to pass in silence, aud. if tbe
whole truth be told, let an inward
prayer escape her heart that some thunderbolt might fall and strike her before
that terrible day dawned.
Such prayers, however, are mostly
futile. Mary's wedding day dawned all
too "soon, and the warning, "Be not
afraid with any amazement." rang out
over tbe heads of an ashen pale bride,
wbo had steadfastly and resolutely refused to allow herself to be decked in
bridal attire; a rather nervous and rubicund bridegroom, wbo dropped the ring
and mumbled his vows defiantly after
the officiating minister; a mahogany
faced groomsman and a frail, elderly
lady in a mauve silk wbo leaned upon
tbe arm of a tall young woman in
nurse's uniform
So tbe sacrifice was completed 1 To
Mary Hamilton. Mary Conway by then,
] it  passed  like a   hideous  dream, ouly
1 there was no awakening.
"My darling childl" cried her mother enthusiastically     "I am so  happy I
j My dear child!"
"1 am glad, mother," Mary whispered back and wondered tho while if itoil
would ever forgive her for the false
vows she bad plighted, thu outrage she
had done to herself, for being the living
lie tbat she was.
On one occasion jl little drummer
boy, securing leave fP absence, accompanied a sergeant to h public levee tbat
*'©ltl Abe" was holering nt the White
House. They went early, and when
President Lincoln appeared and the
handshaking began they were not long
In reaching him.
The tall man, almost a giant In physical proportions, looked down with an
amused smile at the tiny drummer boy,
who appeared hardly 10 years of age.
Grasping tbe little fellow's right hand,
the president suddenly reached out his
left, swung tbe boy off bis feet nud
set him gently down on a small table
beside him.
"Aha, my little soldier," he 6ald,
laughing, "you shall help 'L'ncle Abe'
review tills line today, and if your superior officer objects, why, I'll prolong
your leave of absence!"
Lincoln asked lhc boy bis age, place
of residence, regiment and where he
was on duty. Thin, as some of tbe
more Important officers of the army or
navy, members of congress or of tbe
executive departments chanced to pass
In the line, the president would gravely
Introduce his young assistant, with
whom. they -were required to shake
hnnds as well ns wilh himself.
When the reception was over, President Lincoln took the boy into his private apartments and Introduced him to
Mrs. Lincoln. After entertaining him
at luncheon be dismissed him with a
brief note to the commanding officer of
the hospital where he was then stationed telling why the boy's leave of
absence had been extended.
Lincoln's geniality and willingness at
all times to bear or to tell a good story
were conspicuous traits, not always
agreeable to some of his able but worried aud irritable advisers.
On one occasion a sergeant had a
squad of men at work unloading supplies from an Ohio river steamboat
that In some mysterious manner had.
made its way from the interior to the
coast waters of Virginia. It was a flat
bottomed boat, drawing not more than
three feet of water wheu loaded and
hardly dampening Its plank bottom
when light. It was propelled by a
horizontal stern wheel, driven by a
small upright engine. Boats of that
type were common ou the Ohio, which
rims almost dry nt some seasons. They
were known as "Plttsburgers" aud
were fabled to navigate freely lu a
heavy dew.
The sergeant's men were hard nt
work carrying rations ashore from this
craft when suddenly ihey stopped and
Sent up a lusty cheer. A little tuglike
steamer had pulled up alongside, and
from it stepped a lull, awkward man
dressed In rusty black and wearing a
napless silk hat. The sergeant recognized the president and saluted.
"Your boat is well named, sergeant,"
said the latter gravely.
f'lie soldier was puzzled. lie did not
know that the steamer had a name and
said so.
The president took him by the arm
and led him back ou the tug. There
the stern of ihe "Plttsbtii'ger" loomed
above them, nnd on Its dirty white surface iu tarnished gilt letters a yard
long appeared the single word. Mist.
"Yes," said Lincoln, "it's very well
named Indeed, sergeant. All those
boats need Is a mist, aud they'll run
"Years ngo." he continued, "I was attending court In Cairo. Ills., when the
Ohio was so low that all the water
there was between Its banks was what
bad spilled over from the Mississippi.
'Those 'IMttsburgei's' were passing and
repassing all the time. One night there
came up a little shower that rnlsed the
level maybe a half Inch. One of 'em
got out of the Channel, slid ashore
and grounded In the mud right beside
thc courthouse. -,■    -;!>^
"ll was there the next morning, nnd
I remarked lo a IjIffltlTif.r attorney thnt
that boat was aground to stay. Ue
wns   from   'Egypt'.and   knew   more
nbout 'Pittsburgers' than I did. He
merely smiled and said, 'You wait and
"There came ou another shower tbat
afternoon. 1 beard an engine puffing
nnd looked out of the courthouse window. Maybe you'll think I'm exaggerating, but there was that boat steaming down the road toward the river,
nnd In two minutes she was back In
the Ohio, just as the shower was over.
"I expressed my surprise to tbe
Judge, but be said that was nothing.
If the shower hadn't come up In time,
the captain would simply bave hired a
boy with a sprinkling pot to go ahead.
They're great boats, sergeant. Likely
as not this one got here by coming
across country."
President Lincoln repeated this extravagant story without tbe ghost of a
smile. During Its recital Secretary
Stanton and Generals Ilalleck and
Sherman—the last named having run
up the day before from his march
through tbe Carollnas—who were wltb
the party, bad approached t^ie president. General Sherman smiled broadly,
but Stanton looked annoyed, a'he president caught his glance nnd. wltb a
wink nt the others, said, "But maybe
you've beard this before, Stanton."
"Very likely 1 bave," tbe secretary
grimly responded, "but I would suggest, Mr. President, tbat General Grant
Is awaiting us."
Tbe gleam of amusement left the
kindly man's eyes. He gravely turned
and shook hands with the sergennt and
then strode after his companions, ns

"There is generally a history behind
nicknames," remarked a rounder nt one
of the.lnitols recently, "and you will generally ___ that the name is either commemorative of some event or it is descriptive of some striking peculiarity. I
have been very much amused at the
names worn by many negroes. 'Snowball,' for instance, i.s a name nlmost universally applied to negroes of the blackest cast, and other negroes have taken on
names that are equally striking. 'Big

Why Beauty Fades
and Sufferings Come.
Real beauty is.rare. It belongs to perfect health. Just
as soon as the blood gets thin and watery and the nerves become exhausted beauty fades, wrinkles shdw themselves, the
beautiful curves give way to lameness and'-ferigles. Nervousness quickly destroys beauty of face and form. The female
organism becomes deranged and there are sufferings almost
unbearable at the nionthiy-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 end-less amount of suffering.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, the great blood builder and
nerve restorative, is woman's trreatest blessing from youth to
old age. It helps heV 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 assisfcs>iVi.the..;developnient of glowing, healthful beauty. A few weekr/'tre'Stment with this great
Food cure will do wonders for every woman who is pale, thin,
weak and nervous.

When a policeman on Pacific street
came along to where it family was moving out at 10 o'clock at night, he halted
and said to the man who was wrestling
with an old bureau:
"You must be rushed with business
during the daytime to move out at this
"No, no great rush," wns the reply.
It's simply on account of my feelings fur
the landlord."
"He wanted the house at once, oh?"
"Oh, no. You see it was this way. He

Among the much respected residents erf Orangeville is Mrs. Marshall, who lives In a pretty little
collage on First street. For some
years her twelve-vear-old daughter,
Mamie, hus been a sufferer from rheumatism combined with thai other
terrible affliction—St. Vitus' dance.
In conversation recently with a reporter of the Hun, Mrs. Marshall told
the following story of lot daughter's
stilTeriiiL- and subsequent restoration
to health :—"At „he age of eight,"
Bays Mr-- . Marshall. "Manilu was attacked wilh rheumatism, from which
she suffered very much, ana although
she was treated li.v a clever doctor
her health did not improve. To make
her condition worse, she was attacked With St. Vitus' dance, ana I really
gave up hope of ever seeing her enjoy goo.I health again. Her arms
and limbs would twitch and jerk
spasmodically'and she could scarcely hold a dish in her hand, and had
to be looked after almost like an infant. While Mamie was in this condition a neighbor who had tise-tl llr.
Willi.n... Fink i'iils with beneficial
results iti her o-*n family advised n.
to try them In .Mamie's case I had
myself often heard these pills highly
spoken of, but it had not occurred to
me before that they might cure my
little girl, but now I decided to give
them to her. Before she had com-
pleted the second box I could see a
marked change for the better, and by
the time she had taken fibe boxes she
trace uf both the rheumatism and St.
Vitus' dance had vanished, and she
i.s now as bright, active and healthy
as any child of l.er age. .Some time
has elapsed since she discontinued the
use of th-'. pills, but not the slightest
trace of the trouble has since made
itself manifest. I think, therefore,
that I am safe in saying that I believe Iii-. Williams' Pink Fills not,
only restored my child to health, but
have worked a permanent cure."
Rheumatism, St. Vitus' dance and
all kindred diseases of th. blood and
nerves speedily yield to llr. Williams'
Pink Pills and Ihe cures thus elfect-
ed ai" permanent, because this medicine makes rich, red blood strengthens tie nerves, and thus reaches the
root ol tbe trouble. These pills are
sold b.v all dealers in medicine or
will b sent -post paid at 50 cents a
box or six boxes for S2.00, by addressing the Dr. Williams Medicine
Co., Drockville, Ont.
One of the strangest botannicnl curiosities in Ihe world is the "Wonder-Wonder" (lower found in the
Malay peninsula. ft is simply a
blossom, without leaves, vine or
stem, and grows as a parasite on
decayed wood. This extraordinary
flower is something like a yard in
diameter, and has a globular cup in
the middle with a capacity of five or
six quarts.

Is gone, and despondency hus taken hold of

nothing to live for. '1 here, however, is a
cure—one box of Parmelee's Vegetable I'i la

strength. Mandrake and Dnnd. lion are two
of the articles entering into the composition
of 1 _rmelee'a Pills.

Bright's Disease Not So Frequent of
La'e Years—Dodd's Kidney Dills
Undoubtedly thc Causer—Diabetes
Also Far-Less Prevalent.
Slatane, Que, duly 8.—(Special)—
Not only in this neighborhood but
throughout the Province of Quebec
there is a marked decrease noticeable
in the number of eases of Bright's
Disease reported. This.- tact is undoubtedly due to the " yvftle use oi
Dodd's Kidney Dills in the earlier
stages  of Kidney ^Disease.
Bright s ilrsen.se' at one tunc was
the cause otv a large proportion of
the deaths in this province. D was

Kidney^ Tills were introduced in was
incurable. Not so. however, now.
Dodd's Kidney I'iils have almost
wipeil the disease out. Nor is Diabetes heard of now to arty gren* extent.
The most common form b.v which
Kidney Disease manifests ils.-If is
Backache, and here Dodd's Kidney

work. They are recognized as the
surest nnd quickest cure for Diu'k-

wherein they differ from nil oilier
backache medicines except Imitations
of Dodd's Kidney Dills. They do
more than merely relieve. They positively ami permanently enr.-, as
thousands of people are ready to testify.
